I'm from a small brazilian town and I'm still a NEET at 32yo, I wonder how uncommon my situation is since most people in poor countries have to work ASAP and can't afford being a NEET.
I'm very lucky that my town has a very low cost of living yet my father is an accountant for a big farmer around so we're quit comfortable. Also I never ask for anything, only thing they spend money on me is food really. I still have a PC from 2008 for example.
Curious to hear more cases like me.

23-yo in Mexico here. I live in a rather well-developed city. My mother's doing somewhat alright. We're not even middle-class by any means, but at least she makes enough so that I don't have an immediate need to work — unlike all her siblings who are poor af and need to wageslave for pennies or be homeless. Many of my cousins have dropped out of college because they suddenly can't afford to not work, or juggle studying and working full-time. Naturally, they despise me.

If worse comes to worst I'd just get a job at some hellish telemarketing company. Just speaking English is a marketable skill here and most people who claim to do so speak like shit.

They call us "ninis" here (NI estudia NI trabaja / NEITHER works NOR studies). I don't know why hearing that word makes me wanna puke when "NEET" doesn't bother me in the least. Maybe I just hate the Spanish language.

There are some advantages to live in the 3rd world LatAm in my case.

>Your parents won't kick you out: This is not the US where you're supposed to get the fuck out the second you're 18, here living with your parents is totally normal even if you're a 33 year old, most parents actually want their kids to stay home for as long as possible, but hyper-sexual normalfags of course want to get out and live the independent "city life".


>Less pressure to be successful: Since we're not an ultra competitive society you're not supposed to be an ultra wealthy successful guy at 23, the expectations are much lower and your parents will most likely be ok with any job you can get, even as a dishwasher (unless you have rich parents and you went to a top private university or something).


>Education is cheap or free, so you can just stay a perpetual student and fool your parents into thinking that you're "on track" to be someone while you actually just slack and play games, this is what I did, and the government may give you a little money if you're doing ok.


>Piracy: No one cares if you pirate 15TB of movies, vidya, porn whatever without a VPN, you will never get a letter from your ISP, everyone pirates and no one gives a fuck.


The disadvantage is of course that NEETbux is either very low or zero, in the US or Europe you may be able to get money for being a depressed autist or so if you play your cards right (from what I know),here if you tell social services that you're depressed and want bux they will laugh at you, and you will have to work or get some money by yourself even if you have severe mental issues, if you're fortunate enough to get some bux is like $200 a month or so, so bux is more like a help than an actual way to survive.

Sounds like Latin America is actually pretty comfy, all things considered. For what it's worth I think bux might just be a European thing, I've never actually heard of anyone getting them in the US or even Canada. At least from my experience the bux that you could potentially get are not enough to cover everything either, it's more like a government subsidy to keep Walmart/McDonald's wageslaves from Keeling over and dying, you wouldn't be able to live off of them alone without some employment income.

Assuming you're the SEAwiz, what are you? My understanding was that most of the actual natives of SEA countries are poor farmers or working class, and a small Chinese merchant elite basically runs the show jewing everyone else out of a living.

I also know that Malaysia has some really punishing affirmative action type stuff to benefit the natives, so if you're Indian or Chinese there, you might want to just stop working to stop feeding the beast, so to speak.

Yeah, I've noticed that too. Hispanics online (in Spanish, I don't speak Portuguese) are huge assholes, way above the usual internet dickishness. It's difficult to even say anything without being insulted by strange derogatory words that usually come down to not having sex, or being a virgin, completely unrelated to the topic.

I got curious to check out my country's Hispachan board and found that place much more disgusting than 4chan. Partly it's that Hispanics are for some reason MUCH more sex-obsessed than Americans and Europeans, and also have a dumb macho culture that I find completely obnoxious.

I think it's overall one of the most annoying cultures to be a wizard.

 No.186860

>>186859
Hispachan is way worse than 4chan because at least 4chan is populated with relatively well off (if depressed/angry) people with certain culture and behavior that is natural due to living in stable 1st world countries.

Hispachan on the other hand is full of your average 3rd worlders trying to up each other, it's like watching a bunch of cockroaches fighting each other to be the top cockroach, they behave with this animalistic Latino attitude that wants to feel superior to other people to deal with the fact that you still live in a shithole.

I haven't been on hispachan for years and I don't miss it a bit, Spanish speaking communities are way worse than English ones.

You sound bitter. I managed to live as a neet in russia for 10 years. After school i joined college just because it's free and i didn't feel bad not to attend it. Instead i walked around city or sat in a library until it's time to go home. But ofcourse i got expelled after a year. But in russia first education is free until you finish it, so i just apply to another college and even tried to study there but with no luck. Then i got to third, this lasted for 6 years and i give up on getting a degree. My parents had come to understanding that i'm not going anywhere in life and let me stay as a neet for a year. But eventually i wageslaved for 8 months in a shitty job. Saved money that will allow me to neet for 6 month.
I actually love russian's grey commiblock landscapes. I found peace in it's melancholy and in grumpy people who stroll around. Looking at picrealated i feel like i belong here, and wouldn't survive in sunny california or spain with smiling people around

Turkish and I'm working as a wageslave while in college, I can't even fathom how anybody that wasn't born to an upper middle class family could manage to be a NEET in this shithole. Even old people getting pension every month have to work.
Between the ages 5-16 my family had a shitton of money coming in, upper middle class tier but for "some reason" we had a fucking middle lower class lifestyle. They didn't bother saving it or getting something I can inherit. Just wasted it all on retarded shit, mom gave a significant part of her monthly wage every month to some random guy on facebook for years, then threw a retarded fit when he got married and told her to fuck off.

Poor Brazilian here. +30 and never worked.

I managed to stay neet by studying in public universities in other states without going to classes until expelled. Then I would do it again. It wasn't a plan, I FAILED in life.

Then I became a full HOMELESS vagrant and would not touch bitcoin because I knew that one day they would be enough.

That image is obviously a pathetic attempt to represent the lonely men of our times. It is clearly from someone that doesn't know anything about what they are drawing.

Looks like it was drawn by a 3D female. I can tell from some of the pixels and having ripped on many females in the past. Those… things enjoy drawing boys and men in despair over not having a 3D female of their own. In their eyes, guys are only sad because they don't get p**sy, and so these females fetishize it.

At least when men design lonely succubus characters with baggy eyes and black hair and hugging a pillow, they present her as having a personality, justifications for their attitude, and self-awareness. Like Tomoko. When men draw boys of the same stock, they're gay.

Argentina, chile and uruguay are the places where you want to be if you are in latam. These dont have the barbaric violence of mexico, brazil, colombia, etc. But that doesnt mean that everything is stable. The economy is in constant crisis, inflation and informal jobs make the prices of anything not make sense, its not like in the US where the prices are similar, here everyone prices whatever they want. Usually brain drains happen and thats when the country begins to decay
Right now like %60 of the population are poor, ane as more and more profesionals leave, eventually it will become like any other latam country. The only thing im afraid of in the future is violence, i dont mean "europe muslim attack violence" i mean mexican decapitation after torture kind of violence. At that point im leaving to better horizonts.

Hue wiz here, but not a NEET, I'm too poor to afford NEETdom, and having something to do in the morning keeps me sane. The good thing about this shithole is that housing, food and entertainment are very cheap if you're smart, with R$1000 you can survive in my city, and a bit more you can actually live comfortably. Also, if you want to gamble with crypto/stocks, you only need 1/5 of the minimum you need to make it in first world countries, $150.000 and you're set for life with a passive income, and crypto can hold off the inflation. That's my plan for now, FI/RE as soon as possible, I can do it in 10 years as long as I'm frugal.

You have to understand that for the public here NEETs were more like the nigger that does nothing but go and do illegal things on the street than the passive wizard-like guy that stays all day on his room playing vidya, a lot of people that would be considered NEET were actually drug dealers, but not all of them, a lot were just young people that had no means to get a job.

Well, that part could never be in doubt.

I ask because I'm a Mexican NEET and I'm interested in the experiences of another Mexican NEET with the way Mexican society sees the issue of NEETdom. Since some years ago I've completely cut off all contact with latam media, Internet sites, TV content, etc., as a form of defense against the psychological warfare of mainstream latam normalfag culture (I know this makes me sound like a schizo lmao). I don't really find out what's going outside except on the rare cases when I have to leave the house. (Some months ago I was very surprised to find that my city had been overrun by black people. I'd only gotten to see black people a couple of times in my life when I'd visited the US, but now they were everywhere.)

>NEETs used to be blamed by the government for the drug wars and other shit, not so much anymore.

Yeah, I do remember at some point hearing the topic being presented that way back when I was in middle school and the drug war was at its worst. Then the drug war fizzled and I don't recall having heard the topic of NEETs ever being mentioned again until these last few years now that I'm mostly isolated.

Monterrey. They're Haitians. Their skin tone is very black, not like the blacks that American culture allows to become famous actors and artist that have a lighter dark brown skin tone. I imagine many of them were only passing to the US and Canada, 'cause I don't know why they'd wanna settle in Mexico, even Monterrey, which would be like switching rooms in the Titanic (well, let's admit it, that'd also include the US).

You can now find many working in convenience stores and other such small businesses, but most are in groups in many streets and intersection as beggars, so tells me my mom who actually leaves the house on a daily basis. But I was just very shocked at seeing such large groups of black people all throughout the city when I'd only gotten to see a handful with lighter skin a couple of times when I'd visited the US.

Now, I don't really care. I have nothing against black people or immigrants, though they probably will make finding jobs harder for other Regios since they'll be willing to work for much less.

So to begin with, I'm not very familiar with the concept of "spic" beyond having been taught in middle school by a teacher from America that it was an ethnic slur directed at latamfags. Outside of that I might've heard it once or twice. It seems to be more of a thing only in certain areas of US.

>why do some mexicans look down on other spics?

I've heard of the stereotype of Argentinians looking down on other latamfag countries due to their country having a mostly white population, but I can't speak for that since I've never met and held a conversation with Argentinian.

I can't think of examples of Mexicans looking down on other latamfags. They may, for example, demonize Cuba and Venezuela, but I've never seen Cubans and Venezuelans treated any differently for their nationality. What I see more is inner-infighting like people from Northern Mexico dissing people from Mexico City, everyone dissing people from Northern Mexico, etc.

>never noticed this from the more indigenous looking spics though, they were cool.

Okay, that does start to ring some bells. English-educated, white Mexicans from highly-developed cities like San Pedro Garza García and its neighboring cities do tend to have an inner sense of superiority over other Mexicans and latamfags, as well as a certain shame for being a latamfag, usually trying to look and speak as if they were American and hide many things that might give them away as latamfags (which is completely incomprehensible to me since why would anyone want to seem like they're from a third world shithole like the US?).

When I was in college I overheard multiple times succubi humble bragging about how when they were visiting some other country people acted surprised they were surprised at finding out that they were Mexican, treating it as if it were one of the greatest compliments they could receive. That's really, really interesting, as well as rather silly. This isn't to say that they have shame in being Mexican. On the contrary, they are extremely proud of being Mexican, but of being the uncommon, "good" Mexican who speaks English with no traces of a Mexican accent and is well in tune with whatever is trendy in the US.

And it's not even that much about the color of the skin, but about class and education. In middle school I had an extremely dark-skinned Venezuelan classmate with very wealthy parents who had moved to Mexico, and he was 1000x worse than any of the rich so called "Whitexicans" from San Pedro that I have ever met.

But again, this really depends on the area and it's mostly in the Northern, more developed cities. And it's precisely for this false sense of superiority and elitism that is common in Northern Mexico that they tend to be looked down on by those in other parts of the country. Part of this disdain against them, however, is also a perceived sense of their own dear and precious "Mexicanity" (an actual word in Spanish used by Mexicans with pride) being attacked, which might just be even dumber to me.

(Also, 9 times out of 10 their English actually sucks and they don't know shit about IPA.)

>that is why I am just a geographical error spic, refuse to claim any race or identify with any group

Yeah, I agree. I look down on patriotism and racism as silly and made-up delusions at worst, and arbitrary self-fulfilling prophecies at best. Any feelings of national pride or shame are alien to me. Wizards are always foreigners to their own countrymen, culture, and ethnic group, so I don't see the point in trying to identify with the traits and characteristics of those normalfags.

Arab ex-NEET here

I have a perma-NEET uncle in his 40s I'm immensely jealous of too and just wanted to talk about him. He lives with his unmarried sisters both of whom work and just does whatever the fuck he wants all day.
He inherited a lot of property from my great-grandfather, who was buying shit before the country was formed, and now he just lives off of that income.
They live in a pretty simple home, but he owns a god damn Ferrari and still has excess upon excess spending money.

My own hopes for NEETing in the future aren't so bright unfortunately.
The country has no social security or welfare, and the banks are absolutely genuine, unadultered evil.
The home I was raised in for the first 15 years of my life was taken from us.

I might be able to build a house then rent it out if I save for a number of years so there's hope there… But the projected income from that is a pretty paltry sum in the big picture.
