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.
Do people find you suspicious?I'm not sure which section to be posting this in, and I wasn't even sure if I should post it at all. But I can't help but notice that, over the last few years especially (but even in my life in general), anytime I'm in a store (which
Disadvantages of Being Conventionally Physically AttractiveA common sentiment among (supposed) wizardly types is that they are perceived as being conventionally physically unattractive, and that this in part is to blame for some of their difficulties in life. In this thread I'd like to discuss a contrarian viewpoint to this.
GeneticsI'm wondering how much of our condition is genetic.
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.
Unknown somewhat lolcows exchange?Anybody here follows lolcows that are seriously unknown? I mean unknown to the point where there are no posts about them on the lolcow forums?
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.
Sobriety GeneralAnyone up for a wizard sobriety support thread?
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.
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.
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.
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.
"Anon, are you gay?"How many here have had the "Anon, are you gay?" talk or just people in general being convinced you're gay?
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.
Making a living off the internetI've always been fascinated by twitch streamers and youtubers. It's amazing how these guys can leech of a bunch of normies for so little, some of my favorite streamers and youtubers have the shortest temper ever and personality, their not wizards but they are clearly most likely not the most acceptable people in the world, i'm good when it comes to sitting in front of the PC and playing games and giving my commentary in thing, altho I do not know how have a proper conversation IRL I can give my opinion on something if I have the time to, and I would give anything to become a anituber or twitch streamer, I'd like to think my content is somewhat better than most out there anybody else had any dreams or ambition to make it online?
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.
The Famous Awkward QuestionHas anybody ever asked you if you are a virgin? If so, what did you answer? As for the rest, how would you feel in that situation? How would you answer that question?
The Matrix IRLEveryone knows this movie is real, but not everyone has taken the time to truly appreciate the veracity of its concepts and how it REALLY works, in a bit greater detail, particularly what the Matrix programs deprive us of.
What do mothers think of their children being virgins?
PsychiatryHi, I'm a 27yo french neet wizard who've been put in mental asylum by his father two years ago.
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?
Money money moneyI’ve realized that If I would have enough money I wouldn’t even leave my apparent, bc job is the main and only reason why I do that. I also think the situation is very humiliating, so I have started to think how to make dissent income without investing to much time in it.
Wizardhood (1/5)The ‘Wizard’ meme is now among the most enduring traditions of the imageboard, with entire sites devoted to the practice of sorcery now available for young apprentices to study on and evade the jealous gaze of the succubus who has laid many a powerful apprentice low. But did you ever consider, even if for a moment, if there was more than the meme? Did you ever consider that there is a reality behind this powerful illusion, a core truth upon which this is based?
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?
ExerciseAny wizzies here exercise? Whether calisthenics, weightlifting, cardiovascular, or other. Share the reasons why you do/don't exercise, what you do, etc..
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
WorldviewsWhat does your world look like? How do you live your life? Is your world a nice place?
Kessler SyndromeAs satellites in space smash into each other, debris is created. That debris collides creating tinier debris. The more shit we launch up into space, the more debris we create. The more shit we abandon up there, the years, no, decades of work, left up there like trash thrown to the wayside, the more debris we put up there. One day all of this debris will culminate into a layer of sand sized debris in our orbit, covering our planet, preventing any further launches. No GPS, no satellite based internet or TV, nothing. Darkness. Anything we put up there will be shredded and apart of the blob we have created. Our ingenuity is our undoing. Our haste will kill us all. The space race doomed us.
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.
Compulsive DisordersI have an impulse compulsive disorder called Trichotillomania. It means I have urges to pull hair from my body. I mainly pull from my beard and sometimes scalp. This really affects the way I look, which in turn affects my self esteem.
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?
programming jobsMe mom wants me to study something next year,and since i cant do a full career at uni,we decided I have to do something computer-related,so im using electronics all day.
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?
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.
the wizard beardWizards are always despicted with huge beards in media. Anyone here has experience growing one?
Feelings are a diseaseWizards do not naturally produce feelings. We are thinkers. Feelings are a psychic overlay that falls on us by an outside source. The Demiurge. They are inconsistent, you can have multiple feelings for the same event. Antidepressants neuter feelings at the expense of the thinking function. They make you dumber. As science progresses, we shall reach our true forms as pure thinkers. I for one can't wait for the day that humans are robots with organic components for organic functions.
Hajime UedaI want to talk about Hajime Ueda's works, even though he hasn't made a whole lot and has basically disappeared nearly ten years ago, he made a huge impact on me. He drew two pieces of manga:
Urban v. RuralI don't know if this belongs in the wageslave thread, or if I shouldn't be making this because it sounds like 'bragging.' I left the city about three years ago to somewhere with a population <10k, and I have to say HOLY SHIT HAVE THINGS GOTTEN EASIER.
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.
Internet ruined my lifeI came to this realization very recently.
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.
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.
Goodbye NEET lifeAbout to get a call back for my first "real" job, it's IT tech support.
An Interesting PodcastHello wizzies,
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
I hate the premise of memesI understand that expressing one's disdain for memes is perhaps a highly peculiar thing to be doing on somewhere like an imageboard, which is completely antithetical to the whole experience, but hear me out for a second. You'd most definitely see a greater variety of thought provoking or genuinely funny memes (more OC too) thereby making the signal to noise ratio relatively high. But, in my view atleast, this has led to an incubation of a progressively elitist culture in various parts of the internet. This whole notion of "I know this funi imag and you dont!!" is propagated everywhere, from imageboards to fucking reddit. It's no longer a form of "art" like it used to be (in the sense that you could have a single image sum up an incredibly complex societal issue), but rather an "oopsie" (or whatever kids call it these days) that some faggot with millions of subscribers on youtube made (pewdiepie, however good a person he may be, is a perfect exemplification of this). More importantly, its the newest form of social signalling, and its prevalent absolutely everywhere on the internet, the blatantly contrarian or edgy for the sake of being edgy memes given the most priority.
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.
disability wizI have depression and PTSD, about 2 years ago I was admitted into a psych hospital after a suicide attempt.
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.
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.
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.
