Anyone here play the lottery?Well… I didn't win it, again. Nobody has won it tho, and third time is the charm.
olanzapine , antipsychoticsA popular thing that should be known among us here downside, sometimes some of you will be "invited" to receive treatment for some schizo-whatever thing you have.
Long Term NEETs jolted out of that positionThis is a thread dedicated to a queer position I rarely see discussed even here: are there any 5+ year long NEETs who have been jolted out of that position? I'm currently a 25 year old undergraduate because my parents wanted me to do *something*, thankfully I'm studying a cushy humanities degree, but are there any other early to mid twenties people who were long term NEETs that had to find theirselves doing something?
Normies and Sixth senseIs it true that normal people have a sixth sense other normies. I have had experiences where I try talking to them and somehow they seem to look at me weirdly, even weirder is when one of them admits that I creep them out and that i'm weird, I don't even say or do anything to them, this was my experience throughout all my childhood when I became a teenager. Anybody else had experience with this? or am I just becoming a schizo?
Joining established religions for the psychological benefitsIts been scientifically proven that religion and weekly church-attendance is one of the most powerful ways to be happy.

Sobriety GeneralAnyone up for a wizard sobriety support thread?
You guys were right.Since the 2016 election, 4chan has been increasingly pushed into a paradigm where 4chan has to be the opposite of reddit. That sentiment and paradigm existed before but after the election, the identity of 4chan became about being as racist and Xphobic as possible and really nothing else. 4chan previously had been about free speech, which naturally tolerated racism, and secondarily it was a place for socially marginalized individuals. Normalfaggots had been seeping in through the cracks but there was always an undercurrent that what distinguished 4chan from reddit was that it wasn’t for “normies”. All that changed after the election. When 4chan started using the “soiboy” image, the identity of the site shifted to an entirely political identity and in fact this new political basis would lead to the disenfranchisement of the oldest and truest 4chan users. Since the identity of the site was now about the conservative chad vs. the liberal basedboy, the floodgates were flung open so normalfags could really flood in and feel at home like never before. Naturally a concurrent event was a new association with Christianity and capitalism. 4chan had finally been entirely subsumed into the monstrous paradigm of politics. If you protested, you’d just be called a basedboy who can’t find a succubus to marry and have kids with. Just the same as if you protested to the political identity of reddit, you’d be called a virgin neckbeard who can’t find succubi to party with. Thus it was only natural, the avatar of that socially marginalized oldfag, wojak, would become the ultimate symbol of this new “soiboy” political effigy.
Pyrrhonism is ruining my lifeI used to be a skeptical scientific liberal atheist materialist determinist utilitarian but over time I've started to develop doubts.
Endless NoiseIf there is anything unbearable about this dystopian hellhole that we're finding ourselves in more and more, it's the endless noise of modern civilization. Wherever I am, regardless of whether it is in my own house, where the TV blares 16 hours a day, or in a store where the radio too blares out endless generic and soulless tunes about fucking succubi, nigger and crime and of course money. Even in the quietest of rooms you can hear a low hum from electronic devices, or when even walking in the woods trying to just enjoy the tranquil nature around me I am constantly subjected to the distant sounds of normalfags driving around in their personal wage-slave transports. Even barring all of that, planes will fly overhead, disturbing the natural peace and quiet and reminding me of normalfagdom. Especially in the examples of constantly having to have the TV on, or the music in stores - why? Are they afraid of the silence? I'm seriously considering find a way somehow to live as a hermit far, far away from this constant babbling and droning. I don't care if I die in the wilderness, at least I'd be free from them and finished with spending every living moment of my last five or six years sitting in my basement repeating the same routine over and over and over again.
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.
silly pipe dreams...but maybe?does anyone have experience with fighter games? like tekken or streetfighter?
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.
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?
Anyone else in a perpetual state of anger?This is long; I recommend you sit down and get comfy.
Fantasy World CreationDoes anyone have any advice on fantasy world creation?
DisgustDoes anyone feel an aversion to anything cute and childish? I guess I'm fucked up, but I hate puppies and kittens and I want to kill them. I also hate animals because they are terribly stupid and for the most part only serve to be a humiliating entertainment for a human or to one day become food. To tell the truth, most people are also stupid and so I'm a misanthrope, but the whining puppies infuriate me and I want to shoot them in the head, cut off their paws, and preferably pull out their tongue. And I don't fully know the reason for my abnormal state, because it seems that when you look at a dog, horse, or any other animal, it seems symmetrically constructed and quite beautiful. Then where does my endless hatred come from?
don't care about most familyI have 2 brothers and 1 sister, and I don't care about them at all. They never did anything seriously wrong, we just have nothing in common. They're all older them me, and two of them still live at home like me, so I'll say "hi" and talk to them sometimes, since normies get angry if you ignore them and I don't want to create drama, but I imagine that if some day I finaly got a job and moved out, I would never talk to them again.
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?
Paruresis>Paruresis, also known as shy bladder syndrome, is a type of phobia in which a person is unable to urinate in the real or imaginary presence of others, such as in a public restroom.
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.
Internet ruined my lifeI came to this realization very recently.
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?
Goodbye NEET lifeAbout to get a call back for my first "real" job, it's IT tech support.
disability wizI have depression and PTSD, about 2 years ago I was admitted into a psych hospital after a suicide attempt.
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.
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.
Extroverted wizardsAre there wizards with extroverted temperaments who suffer from a monotonous wizardly life? Nothing new happens, you get up and sit down at the computer. I, for example, am an extrovert, and I'm tired of living in four walls. Recently, I always want to go on a trip, ride a car or bike at high speed, run, jump, go to a concert. I want to be on the move, not sit in one place and get discouraged.
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.
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.
An Interesting PodcastHello wizzies,
The VR Prison TheoryTo set up this thought experiment, think on this.
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?
T soliquoy on the nature of normiesNormies are like ants, at first you believe that you have freedom, but upon closer inspection this is not the case. Normies police themselves, to maintain order. Self policing normality is built into normies, and so is the cancerous kind which must be identified in wizards to liberate them from micro totalitarianism which is forced on us by random normie pedestrians. Let me explain.
Wizardly FantasiesIs there a thing that you would like to be or try for at least a little while that looks to be appealing to live as/do. If I had the money and the knew how to drive/did not fear it, I would love to travel around with a laptop and a few other things seeing historical sites whilst seeing unique things too like old ships.

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.
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?
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:
No interests in life, gaming used to be but isn't anymoreEver since I was a kid, I liked nothing else but games. Really, no other interests or passions.
Normdemons know, yet they try to look as if not.(Insert any text about normalfag delusions and indoctrination here, then follow:)
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.
Hollow Moon1) The Moon seems engineered. On November of 1969, NASA intentionally crashed a lunar module that caused an impact equivalent to one ton of TNT on the Moon. The shock waves built up and NASA scientists listened to what was happening on the Moon. Strangely, after impact, NASA scientists said that the Moon rang like a bell and the reverberation continued for thirty minutes. According to Ken Johnson, supervisor of the data and photo control department, the Moon not only rang like a bell but the whole Moon “wobbled” in such a precise way that it was “almost as though it had gigantic hydraulic damper struts inside it.
the wizard beardWizards are always despicted with huge beards in media. Anyone here has experience growing one?
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.
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
2020 ResolutionsYes it's that time again when I post this beautiful picture and we talk about what are we going to try and achieve for the next year. It doesn't need to be any specific goal, sometimes you just want to change your behavior in general.
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.

WorldviewsWhat does your world look like? How do you live your life? Is your world a nice place?
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.
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.
"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?
GeneticsI'm wondering how much of our condition is genetic.
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?
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.
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.
