ExerciseAny wizzies here exercise? Whether calisthenics, weightlifting, cardiovascular, or other. Share the reasons why you do/don't exercise, what you do, etc..
Psychology Thread INTJ Master RaceMost therapists are delusional normans, too trapped in their own complexes to help us. I google different forms of therapy and try them on myself. Most don't work, but they're fun.
Can psychiatrist know everything about from conversation with me?Look, I ve never been to psychiatrist neither psychologist. But I know that something wrong with me, I know for sure that I had strong social phobia for many years and perhaps I may have aspergers syndrome and some kind of neurosis? Also I m introverted male. I ve never had any friend.
Polyphasic sleepHas anyone tried the uberman or Everyman sleep schedule?
TeetotalersMy mother is a very heavy alcoholic. Someday a couple of years ago, I heard this weird gurgling and moaning, and I just found her sprawled out on the kitchen floor. She was conscious, but just so drunk that she could just barely even hold a conversation with me or even move. That's how much of an alcoholic she is.
Legal ways to get energy?I feel so tired all the time. No matter how much sleep I get or how regular my sleep schedule is. Yes I checked for sleep apnea and any kind of deficiencies.
Hellfire is a comin'Many of you despair at the state of the world and modern consumerism society, but I am here to tell you not to fear because the world that you hate so much is about to end.
Have you ever thought about becoming a lolcow cringe comedy character?I know most people would ask why would anyone want to be a laughing stock town fool of the internet? But way back to childhood days, the only options I ever had were to be an ignored quiet mouse or a loud wacky cartoonish entertainment monkey. Mouse or Monkey thats it. And so I became a local celebrity of my school days. Sometimes I would get resentful that they were laughing at me, not with me, mocking me, teasing making fun. Like the lolcows of the internet. But after trying to be serious in college, and just being totally ignored, I realized that attention beats isolation, and its the only means of socialization I know. For the last few years I've retreated back into my mouse role, and have had almost no human contact.
Is there any point to the universe?Like does it have any real reason to exist? What really, is its sole reason of being? Without intelligent life, the universe doesn't have a chance in hell to make sense of itself.
Inability to speak wellDoes anyone else suffer from this issue? It seems to me that I have trouble constructing sentences when I am talking to people in real life, and even I get my words mixed up when I talk to myself on camera (I make video journals for myself). The issue gets worse when I argue with someone and my words get slurred. I am jealous of people who can quickly form sentences while I need sometime to make up those sentences. I see these same people who can make fluid conversation and I sometimes wonder if there is something wrong with me. It's like they know instantly what to say and how to say it.
Death of Parents or Other RelativesCan we have a thread where we discuss the death of our parents or other significant relatives? Please make a post in this thread about your experience dealing with the death of a parent or other relative. What advice do you have for other wizards? How did you handle things like funeral arrangements, sorting things out with other family, finances, inheritance, housing, nursing homes, hospice care, insurance, or emotional issues. How did your other family members handle any of these things?
PsychiatryHi, I'm a 27yo french neet wizard who've been put in mental asylum by his father two years ago.
GeneticsI'm wondering how much of our condition is genetic.
My fantasy dreamlife as a Medieval Scholastic theologianWe've had a lot of discussions about Monks, and I certainly understand the appeal of being physically separated from the normie world in an isolated group-hermit community of fellow volcel men. But I'm not sure if I'm suited for the laboring aspects of it, picking potatoes. And so while I started out with monks as my ideal community, I started looking into the more academic side. It was actually right here on Wizchan, in one of the Monk threads, were a Wiz in Missouri mentioned there was a monastery very near him. And then I did some research on it and found out it was also a Seminary. And that seemed like the idea for me, combining Benedictine community with academic scholarship. And so I realized I was more interested in the scholastic aspect. So I started looking into other orders like Franciscans, Dominicans, Jesuits.
Volunteering with senior citizensWay back when I was in middle school and we had to do volunteering, the principal suggested given my interest in WW2, I might like volunteering at the senior center. I was sour on it at the time, but actually it makes a lot of sense.
Wikipedia ArticlesLet's have another one of these. Share interesting Wikipedia articles you've come across. Let's keep reading everything about the world to keep the world (and boredom) at bay. A small description about what you're posting is nice but not necessary.
Sobriety GeneralAnyone up for a wizard sobriety support thread?
Homeless Japan WizI made a couple threads about a year ago on homelessness, drifting, and vagabond traveling. A wiz that homeless traveled through Japan recounted his travels in those threads.
Forced AsexualityHave any of you guys tried "forcing" yourself to become asexual? People on quora (https://www.quora.com/Can-you-become-asexual-by-trying) say that you're born asexual, just like you're born gay, lesbian, trans etc. and that you can't make yourself change your sexuality by you power of will.they also say that being asexual is a hassle in this oversexualised society, but wizards prefer a solitary lifestyle away from society, so it's not a problem for us, right?
the wizard beardWizards are always despicted with huge beards in media. Anyone here has experience growing one?
The All-Embracing LibrarySize 177.96GB. I dare to say contains among the best books of their fields and are supposed not to repeat. It is a extremely well ordered collection by topic, and if you compare the size you soon see its value. Topics range from mathematics, physics, psychology, self improvement, survivalism, the best science fiction and fantasy literature, comics, magazines, and more. Magazines takes about 75 GB and there are many youtube videos, documentaries and conferences so you can exclude these if you want to. All books combined takes about 40 GB or so. But i really recommend downloading other stuff too since you can't really find it somewhere else easily. Did I mention is well sorted and contains only the best books?
NEETbux, Autismbux, Gibs etc.Does anyone here in the USA have food, housing and money provided to them by the government due to a successful disability claim?
Parents and personal responsibilityI've been thinking about how I blame my parents for my lot in life. And yet at the same time the normie answer would be "you're a grown adult man, stop being a crying snowflake, and take responsibility for your own life".
How strong is the immune system?I am somewhat of a germaphobe but it's also coupled with lack of energy and money. So even thought I want to clean everything thoroughly and regularely I find it too exhausting. But I have yet to get sick (knock on wood) except a cold once in a while.
New hereSomeone recommended this to me on r9k. How do you guys like my stats?
Wizardly HygieneJust wondering how other wizards/apprentices feel in regards to hygiene. I'm NEET and my bathing is inconsistent, nowadays I'll sometimes go 2-3 days without a bath for every bath I take, but this used to be much worse. I would go a week plus without one consistently, and I think my worst stint was 2 months without bathing. I also used to have unkempt long hair and it was matted and tangled. I floss every day and brush occasionally, I'm actually terrified of the dentist and so I treat my teeth a bit better than the rest of my body
Project L.E.E.C.H.lets extract expenses(and be) comfy heroes.
Decisions to makeThese are the three likely choices for most wizards if they can no longer be wizards or neets due to whatever circumstances brought upon them, which one do you choose and why? There are exceptions like inheritance, welfare and being rich though.
Military threadWhat's your opinion on serving in the military? I know there's been some military wizards on here before, so I guess I was curious about your experiences if you have had any. Though there's a lot of 3rd world wizards who browse here, I guess this is obviously geared towards experiences in the western militaries. Or we could just have a general /mil/ thread for discussing topics and stuff.
The Next Ten Billion Yearshttp://archdruidmirror.blogspot.com/2017/06/the-next-ten-billion-years.html
The imperative of progress, momentary fashion or human innate quality?Throughout the vast majority of history, as a species we have simply existed like other animals. Eat, breed, survive. Norma. Then came religion and philosophy, which dictated how to live. It regulated social relations and explained the unexplained, but it was still about survival.
How do you get rid of social needs?Part of the reason why I have avoided real life social interaction is my disdain for how people seek validation and acceptance from each other. They bully, brownnose, backstab, and make a whole circus performance to get other people to acknowledge them. I hate that and I want to be free from that so I stay away from them, social validation is a weakness that'll make you suffer when you don't have it and make you a jester slave in fervent pursuit of it in stead of something more meaningful. However, my natural social instinct always bring me to an alternative form of social groups, anime subculture, meme subculture, and now wizchan. But even that is starting to bother me. Even on wizcan there are many qualities of real life interaction that repulse me, the scramble for hierarchy, validation, and ego when neet wizards, wageslave wizards, uni wizards, political wizards, nihilist wizards, religious wizards, marginally social wizards, happy wizards, suffering wizards all throw their shit at each other in a war of supremacy. Even if you can get pass that and establish yourself as someone who truly belongs and feel connected to the site, all you have done is to give yourself a dependence. The website will be gone one day, it may change just like how old wizardchan allowed crabs, or maybe it is you who will change. And when that happen what will you do with your need for validation, are you going to look for another place, struggle and fight to worm yourself in, and repeat the cycle anew?
Life through a moth's spiracle; Solitude of a wizard.I've lost a moth fly yesterday. I don't know where it could have gone and to my own surprise the case is making me concerned and I keep going back to it, trying to figure things out. I had, until yesterday at least, a moth fly in my bathroom. It's a tiny bathroom and I can close it hermetically, to the point not even light can come throught it. The door shuts in pretty good with virtually no space left between the door and the hinge stile, and the casing is so tight you can hear the air running in and you feel it getting stuck if you close it fast enough. I asure you I have analyzed my door intently and there's no way any insect could get in or out when that door is properly shut and I shut it properly every time. I know I do because if I don't other insects will come in from outside like butterflies, bees or ants. I can't allow that to happen, they eventually get stuck between the lamp shade and its canopy and waste away going in circles. I can't imagine what a horrible death that is, even if the light is off and you're not slowly burning up. I'm currently considering not having a lamp shade at all but it's better for everyone if I just avoid their entrance altogether.
Stoa ThreadStoicism is a school of Philosophy with roots in ancient Greece. It is believed that its founder, Zeno of Citium, came to invent it after a unfortunate shipwreck turned him from a prosperous merchant into a very poor man. The story tells that after this unlucky event Zeno became an assiduous reader of the life of Socrates, and that instructed by the example of the old Greek philosopher he himself came to make philosophy on his own and teach it at the Stoa Poikile, a famous building of the city of Athens - hence the name of the school.
death and photosI was googling photos from an old strongman to mimick his tricks but i found several legacy,find a-grave and memorial sites.
Real Life Truman ShowDoes anyone else feel like they're living in a world-sized play set? A lot of events in my life, the way they play out, follow each other and "coincide" simply makes no sense. Unless there really is a cosmic deity, or a number of them, simply being fond of throwing all sorts of hurdles before me and tormenting my mind for laughs.
van livingWhat's your opinion on living in a van/car to escape the paying rent scam? It's something that I've been considering doing for a long time and it definitely seems feasible. I want to be able to escape society and to live more freely. I've lived in small rooms before and I'm naturally frugal so I don't think the transition would bother me too much. I also live in the US so something like this is a lot easier here due to the developed infrastructure then probably in other countries. Ideally I'd like to get a small fuel-efficient van and customize it as to make it livable. Could we have a general thread about this sort of thing? If you've lived in a vehicle before, please feel free to share all your tips here.
Paranoia of everyone being against meHow do you deal with this? My issue personally is that I'm very suspectible of normgroid behavior in public and I nitpick their behavior on their passive aggressiveness. I am a coward so I never really confront them unless it turns to an altercation which rarely happens. I get angry at very little things (i.e person at a stop light speeds off faster than me, leaving a place without receptionist person saying have a nice day, person laughs with their friend when I walk by and automatically assume they're making fun of me etc.). The reason why I'm like this is because I have trouble reading people's emotions and the constant backstabs I recieved has made me more suspectible of normgroid behavior to the point of never trusting them (even extended family members because they have backstabbed me before). I've read tons stories of anons getting teased by normgrouds so I know that normgroids WILL go out of their way to be rude to people just for the sake of it. People on imageboards say things like "It's all in your head wizzie don't worry but often times when I think of the worst common scenario, it turns out to be true. An example would be when I had issues with coworkers at my old job. Apperently some people didn't like me because of my attitude (he isn't quirky and LOVES his job like us wtf!!) but no one told me anything. Long story short, I got fired because someone reported me to management for my "attitude" but when I asked a couple coworkers what everyone thought of me, they said "lol no one badly talks about you" I'm quiet, shy, prefer to be alone, but apperently this pisses off normgroids to no ends. It doesn't help when I see a video on youtube about some guy talking to some guy in a white t shirt witha firm tone in public, and there's comments like "wow guy in white t shirt was so rude because of his tone I would've done x and y to him" where as I would've simply brushed off the guy in white t shirt and not think anything about his tone. This only feeds my paranoia of suspectible normgroid behavior and it's partially the reason why I became NEET for a few years. Sadly I have to wageslave again and I'll have to deal with this problem again. Fuck
Leaving the InternetInternet browsing has been an enormously important part of my life. From my young teenage years through to my late 20s. I have spent a tremendous amount of time browsing all kinds of forums and archives. For me it was a great way to learn about the world, and these creatures called humans that inhabit it, from the safety of my room. Especially as someone with autism, reading countless anecdotes of human behavior has been valuable.
Capitalism and the human mating ritualDoes anyone else view capitalism as being driven mostly by the human mating ritual? It seems to me that one of the main reasons people, men especially, try to achieve social status and earn lots of money is to attract a mate.
Wiztown Wiz NeighborhoodI don't think the Wiz Commune will ever happen as it involves a social community-building and pooling of resources and living in close proximity that most Wizs probably aren't suited for.
running a BUSINESS (to hide ur bux)I would like some advice on how to do this from anyone who has experience with it and can give some vague guidelines. I am currently getting welfare bux and the government will reduce my bux if I earn income, so it seems pointless to try because I will only be able to get minimum wage shit jobs not worth my time. There is also a problem with asset limits (though I am nowhere near that, so it won't be a problem for a while) because if you exceed them, they cut off your bux. Apparently this is much higher for people classified as disabled (which, honestly, I am, from anxiety and depression) so I hope they will recognize my disability so I won't have to worry about that limit any time soon.
An Interesting PodcastHello wizzies,
Homelessness Survival GeneralInspired by the long popular and useful Absolute Homelessness Survival thread (archive link here - http://archive.is/FSyGj) and thriving interest and ongoing utility of the topic, a general thread about homelessness and survival in the harsh, sometimes cruel world is in order.
the last stand of a wizIm being forced by the circumstances to give private english lessons in my spanishphone country.
Nootropics, marketing hype or life changing drugs?So recently I've been looking into nootropics, I've never held a job and I'm a HS drop out, so I really hope this is my saving grace. I am hoping they help me study something productive like programming so I can actually achieve something.
Small town heroesWho are your heroes? My heroes are the kind-hearted souls who are passionate with their modest hobbies and live a life of eternal adolescence. Think the guy who lives for anime or the collector or the toy train enthusiast. And who are so genuine gentle and not of this world that they are seen as fossils to the outside world.
parental wills & testamentsAnyone dealt with this issue before? My mom wastes hours of my time asking me to review documents like these only to completely ignore the problems I highlight in them and completely puts her trust in some fucking stranger who just wants to burn the retainer she gives them while not carrying out her wishes in the slightest. She even admitted she didn't even read the thing when I asked what had been changed: she didn't know, besides having name the backup executor.
Imagined group and imagined armiesDoes the thought of having an army, or being part of a giant army, give you comfort?
dads, siblings' dads, stepdads, maternal boyfriendsI would like to know my fellows' experience with dealing with these categories of people in your life. I've had encounters with all 4 (separate individuals) at various times in my life and found them upsetting in various ways. They've all let me down. I've never felt loved by any of them. I feel like I'm the inherent target of all of their hatred, that they all wish I was dead. I'm angry at my mother for her poor choices and not being choosier and holding higher standards. I listed in them in order of encounter. Each is more awkward than the last. Each is less sane and stable than the last. Each is more violent than the last. Each is more NPCish than the last. I feel like I get pulled into conflicts, manipulated, used as a buffer, when as the person who choose to bring them into our life, my mom should be the buffer and should not be obligating me to interact with them.
PopularityI wanted to take a moment to discuss the topic of popularity. As a child I noticed that all the popular kids all followed the same trends. They used special lingo, they dressed a certain way, had common interests, they were basically walking memes. Whatever was trendy was what the popular kids were doing and that was influenced more by the culture outside of them, the artists and musicians, designers, etc all pushed the bleeding edge of culture and the quicker you were to pick up on it, the cooler you were basically. By the time the lowest of the nerds finally started doing something, all the popular kids would have moved on to the next thing. Watching this process as a child it always seemed so ridiculous. I was watching these people just appropriate portions of pop culture as parts of their own identity out of what seemed like nothing more than an instinctual desire to follow the herd. I always said fuck it and just ignored all the trends because I thought they were so stupid.
How do you stay mentally healthy while having no friends or really anyone to talk to?Solitary confinement is a punishment for a reason. Yet do not advise me to talk to people, I won't do it. I can't decide which is worse, becoming mentally ill or enduring another's company. Of course, if I could be alone and retain my sanity it would be great. But is it possible? If so, how?
What does Nofap and Super AI have in common?A lot of Wizards hold to an EvoPsych, Sociobiological, Darwinian worldview. But then where does that leave us as Wizard virgins? The whole goal and point of this viewpoint is sexual reproduction.
Do you think there could be something to positive thinking, bright siding, silver lining?I know its the epitome of the happy shiny normie people. Just turn that frown upside down. Smile. Look on the bright side. Find the silver lining in the best of all possible worlds. Dr.Pangloss. Pollyanna. But maybe theres something to it.
Wizard Think Tank and Academic JournalWhat would you think about establishing a Wizardchan Think Tank and academic journal?
Family sit-downsHow often are you subjected to them where you are interrogated by a parent, and for how long, if you had to gander? I just had to suffer through about 3 hours of it tonight. She can't grasp the irony that as she tells me not to worry about what she wants, to take time for myself… she is communicating the exact opposite to me by engaging me in personal conversation related to me (which upsets me) instead of just sitting down and watching a TV series and commenting on it (which makes me happy).
