German for "over stallion," and a reference to Nietzsche's "Übermensch," /üb/ - Überhengst is about bettering yourself physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. It is about self-improvement, constructive self-reflection, and seeking advice from others. You may discuss here those personal hobbies through which you develop your creative energies, and the efforts you take to improve your talents, artistic and otherwise. And of course, this is a board for fitness and literature, as they are parts of the backbone of physical and mental wellness. This is also a board where we may discuss Western culture - history, literature, architecture, and philosophy - as when imbibed, culture improves the mind and spirit, sharpening mental faculties, and providing a greater connection to those around you and to civilizations millennia old.

As this is a self-improvement board, discussions of personal problems should be constructive. No wallowing in self-pity. We are here to become better, and while seeking company in misery may be a helpful part of the process, the process does not end there.

Enjoy!

One problem plaguing a lot of people these days, especially burgers like myself, is that many people eat out at restaurants too much instead of preparing home cooked meals. Eating out is frequently both more expensive and less healthy for you than a home cooked meal. Furthermore, many people live with a limited library of meals that they know how to prepare and don't realize the culinary possibilities that are right in front of them.

The purpose of this thread is to try to break that habit of eating out and to make cooking at home become the norm in our lives. Please share meal ideas and how to prepare them here. All meals are welcome, although preferably we should post meals that are easy to prepare so that novice cooks will not be intimidated by the prospect of preparing them for themselves. Even simple sandwiches are fair game. Sometimes that may mean cutting corners with pre-made mixes instead of preparing everything from scratch.

Remember that the goal isn't necessarily to post the most inexpensive meals or the healthiest meals, although those meals are certainly very welcome. The goal is to encourage people to dust off their kitchen appliances and flex their atrophied cooking muscles. I realize that this opens the door to culinary nightmares like /tg/'s infamous meat-bread, but so be it. Let's get cooking!

Looks good.
>I nixed the bleu cheese because without the bacon wrap the cheese would just melt off. Bleu cheese tends to sorta liquify when you melt it, and without a casing, wrap, or other, it will just drip off.
What if you injected it into the brat?
I would also suggest nuts probably slivered almonds as well.
I highly recommend roasted Hatch green chilles, that might cut through with the heat and it's different from other kind of peppers. Ghost pepper (not alot) thrown in while the brats boil would give a nice heat.

Indeed, I've been thinking that spice is the next layer of flavor/sensation to add, but so far I've only put thought in and no applied tests. Habaneros are a favorite for flavor, but I have a wicked ghost pepper sauce. Perhaps both with a bit of citrus to cut the intense heat.
Much to think about, until next time

My old chemistry teacher did that despite his age he was fit. The gentleman had life experience and was/is respectable. Cooked for either the whole week or a month can't remember which. When he and his wife made a staggering amount of premade meals.
Very... utilitarian.
Bulk cooking is good, and fast, and potentially inexpensive. Getting experience cooking and tasting the right flavor might be more risky for trying new things that are more bizarre.
Also make sure it's a balanced diet over the course of the week. If you really crave something that's not sugar you might be missing something.
It's doable, have to make sure some vitamins don't decay or break down too much. So a bit of fresh zest to spruce up the meal might be a nice addition...

>brisket
dalmation rub, fresh coarse cracked pepper & kosher salt is ideal, 50/50
rub the brisket, put in smoker, big end towards flame
smoke at 200-250 for 2-3 hours
take brisket out, coat with bbq sauce, cover in foil, leaving top open
open beer, half for you, half gets poured in the brisket tin foil
cover top of brisket with foil, put back in smoker
smoke until internal temp is 203F (check fat end and skinny end) (buy a digital thermometer you mong)
take brisket out, let rest 30 minutes

that's my recipe for a shitty brisket, like what you would get served at a restaurant

for the best brisket you have ever had, add the following steps before cooking
when you bring the brisket home in the plastic cryopack, stash it in the back of the fridge, make sure it doesn't freeze
come back 4 weeks later, your brisket has been wet aged

I have wet aged as long as 6-7 weeks, it only gets better, but feels pretty dicey at that point

Druidism, the cult of the ancestors or the Celt's religion is a religion focused on achieving true connection with yourself and the world around you, focuses on truth and making yourself the best you can be both spiritually and mentally, it is a religion that originates from the Indo-Europeans and is a European pagan religion.
The druids focused their lives in trying to achieve total greatness and revolved their lives around this phrase "Worship the gods, tell the truth, be manly."

The religion originated within Europe instead of the main dominant organized religions that everyone focuses of which all of them originate from the same sort of place which is some desert whereas druidism comes from our own lands.

The druids valued honor, traditions, manliness, creativity and greatness, their end game was to achieve full connection with the world around them in all manners of life, they had great power in the ancient times and were able to speak directly to the Celtic kings and were highly regarded in Celtic society as they were capable of healing and were experts in magic as they were able to predict the future depending on what is happening in their surroundings and one of their most highly held symbols was the wheel which references the sun disk which the National Socialist sonnenrad also represents.

I see them as the true religion of Europe as druidism originated in the Indo-European times and was the religion of most of ancient Europe before Christianity took that title.

They saw them as a symbol of European heritage and wanted it removed so that the Europeans were all good goy dumb brains that don't want to follow daddy's footsteps and instead follow some pope on dope that tells them how to cope without hope.
An old method of preserving food was mixing it with honey which when in the case of preserving psilocybin created a type of mushroom mead.
That's why i don't drink alcohol on the regular, excessive drinking numbs the mind instead of enhancing it and damages the body instead of healing.
>>2909
This.
Alcohol is priced and is created over time from the rotting of sugars, mushrooms are available depending on the season and are a natural produce of the land, which is a element of the earth and is another reason for treason because it IS a symbol of power that (((they))) know makes the cattle smart, so they have been fighting the "drug war" ever since the onset of Christianity in Europe.

Here's some advice from a wanna be philosopher:
Try and use your left hand more, it's better to know how to use both hands as good as each other in case you ever lose your main hand or can't use it so that you don't have to spend time getting used to it and they are both hands so they can do the same things as one another so use both instead of one.
The best way for me was using my mouse with my left hand when i broke my right hand.

Reevaluate your experiences, if you are unhappy think as to why you are so that you may solve it, think back to your past experiences so that you may learn from them instead of forgetting a situation where you did something wrong so that you don't fail it again in case the same problem faces you again.

Don't fall into a pattern of repetition where you are constantly doing the same things over and over, do something different instead of running circles to no end.
Go out of the box and explore, there is a lot to be learned from the world and not many people have the desire to learn new things.

Think about what people have said so that you yourself may consider if it is true or false, ponder on questions that have been raised and facts that have been stated instead of ignoring them and forgetting the facts.

Praise truth, remember what is true and what isn't and why they are true, it is better to know all then to be unaware of the world around you.
Learn truth, learn what is right and what is wrong and consider the morals that have been implanted into you so that you do not blindly follow orders like a puppet.

Expand your horizon of knowledge so that you may encompass a wide array of thoughts and ideas, knowledge is power.

Learn yourself, uncover the veil that droops over your eyes and find out who you are, without self exploration all other advancements into the unknown are not fully complete without knowing yourself, know yourself like you know your enemy an know your enemy like you know yourself, it will make you more confident in yourself if you are lacking in that department.

I am going to continue this later at some point.

holocaust of pigs.png
There is a breed of pigs which are called Celtic pigs and the pig was considered a holy animal by the Celts and there is a lot of pig bones around commonly used places like a well or a fireplace and they are also found in ritual sites, which makes it pretty much the opposite of Judaism as a Jew cannot eat ham and the pig is considered a disgusting animal to (((them))) because of the way it sustains itself and acts.

https://www.meta-religion.com/World_Religions/Ancient_religions/Europe/animal_symbolism_in_celtic_mytho.htm
>Horses, cattle, and pigs represent fertility. Horse, cattle, and pig bones are found in Welsh and Celtic graves, (Powell, 28) indicating that they were very important to those cultures. The prosperity of the clan is reflected in the prosperity of its herds. Cattle were a major Celtic food source (Davidson, 52)and as such, would be proportionally important to the success and survival of the tribe. Later, pigs became added to the diet of the Irish.

https://www.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/2376474/jewish/Pigs-Judaism.htm
>There is probably no animal as disgusting to Jewish sensitivities as the pig. It’s not just because it may not be eaten: there are plenty of other animals that aren’t kosher either, but none of them arouse as much disgust as the pig. Colloquially, the pig is the ultimate symbol of loathing; when you say that someone “acted like a chazir [pig],” it suggests that he or she did something unusually abominable. Indeed, many people think of pork, ham, bacon, etc., as the most unkosher foods there are.

>Avoiding its name: Many call the animal davar acher, “another thing,” rather than by its proper name. This practice goes back to the Talmud.5
>Prohibition against raising pigs: “The sages forbade raising pigs anywhere [whether in the Land of Israel or elsewhere] . . . The sages pronounced a curse on one who raises dogs or pigs, because they cause frequent and serious damage.”6

ITT we share wisdoms that we have gleaned through our own experiences with our fellow Anons, that they might live a better life. I'll start:

NEVER ask a question unless you are %100 that you want to know the answer. Whatever happens, you literally asked for it, so you better be damn sure you really wanted to know. Remember this and it will help you with friends, family, lovers, and even children. Live your life by it.

I have one tulpa I made 5 or 6 years ago. She's a Unicorn and she used to be a Twilight Sparkle knockoff before becoming her own pony Unicorn with her own name and looks. But recently, she's been thinking of redesigning her body and abandoning her ponyness, replacing it with some other animal nature. Maybe even designing a human body.

She's a living idea, and we aren't sure what effect redesigning her body will have on her. She's afraid her pony body is limiting her and she's lost her love for ponyness. She once went through a stage where we pretended she's some kind of magic quantum spirit from another dimension with her own pony world memories, but she stopped doing that after a few months of being alive.

Should I sign up for another writing forum (maybe a sci-fi one since my story is sci-fi) or focus purely on my novel and release it without any fanfare or following?
Also, where should I publish the book? Amazon's "Sell your book on kindle" thing seems good for a first-timer with no cash to invest but it's fucking Amazon so surely there'll be a catch somewhere.
I have less than 20 friends/fans under the name I'm publishing this book series under.

The tldr do what you think is right.
So I get into trouble with this line of thinking, but I really like it. The whole point of the words is the ideas within. Use the knowldge of communication to helo you. Retoric stuffs: The core point to get across, the audience, the tone and emotion of how it's being expressed, The nitty gritty technical details (font, letter sizes, grammar, word choice, ect.), the medium (a book, or a image board post, or a card, or a text, or a phone call, or a face to face talk).

I say that...
So I think there are three core components. I'm probably wrong and there is most likely exceptions. I'm lifting this from a communications course.
In broad there are three sections to consider.
Your communication
The bridge back and forth
The Audience's combination

Your book is the talk between you and all of the audience.
The audience is normally pitiable. This pic. >>2808
Their points of view can be entirely fucked. I think the job is to bring about their own imagination not to think exactly as you do, but to invoke in themselves their own spark of imagination. So they believe themselves to be genius when you laid it doen for them to think exactly that themselves. It's teaching someone (maybe even manipulation), but with extra steps.
The message and things you convey have to be delivered safe and aound so they can flourish. It's like a virus putting stranda of rna into the cell then the cell starts to accept it as its own.
>I hear novels have to be over 50k words long before they can be called novels.
but
my initial chapters are already over 50k
I might need to trim stuff.

Generally yes.

As a piece of advice I'm still trying to pindown is if reading your words themselves even without the idea or meaning behind it is a joy to read. It's a nice goal and some things need this, but to write in such a way to describe it all whether technical, factual, or fictional is simply complex.
The point isn't the words (unless one is scared to write more than a few words at most, then it's imperative this is/was my case) the meaning behind the words. Going up or down. It is not strictly about the technical it's about the meanings.
Ruinning the technical can ruin meanings, or severely damage them.
But it all comes to the core. At least that's my take.

If it takes 10k words to do one basic idea there may be a problem or it's very complex and needs to be compressed (or put into another work).
But there are fundamental ideas, ideas built on those, and those above that, ad infinitum.
Compressing without losing quality is difficult at times.

So it's not about the word length, but the interest over time (which is conveyed by words converted to thoughts).
What happens? Is it interesting? You have to ask yourself that, and of any proofreaders you enlist.
The action interest curve (general heros journey) is fully applicable to everything.

You may have a problem, but I don't know for sure.
I will say, alot could have happened in 10k words. I've also read alot to know that with that word count all that could have happened is they go from point A to point B with no new character growth or interactions.

So what is the point of a chapter for your story? Because alot can be broken down into peices. AND much can be boiled even further to choice interactions that dictate what the world or character is or is not.
Definitely keep everything you've written it's good to have.
I have to ask what happens in those 80k words?

Going though what I think you might've written... you have an audience and niche. For that style alone.
It's not my taste, but I do enjoy the ideas, characters, effort, and dedication and thought put into it. Everything underneath is good in the newer ones. You have the things I look for in those works made. The works on how it's presented is not my thing. Going through them there are people who enjoy that style. It's... not what I look for on the form of the written part, but I do enjoy what is underneath.
Time changes people I think you could, and can pull it off. Let the bleating of those who would distract find little solace in these few words "Thank you for your input, I may not get back to you, but I'll take it under consideration." Those words work wonders for those that think they know best, or would try to drag you down to them. Keep it in mind, but stay afloat.
Only you can do what you and what you think needs to be done. It will sell. I don't know to what degree, but it will sell.
Get it done you already have all that you need. If you need guidance look within yourself, and the parts unknown, and the just within.

The rage within me is starting to cause health problems. Every second of my life is consumed with thoughts of the enemy and what (((they))) are doing to us. I'm powerless and helpless in this disgusting clown country full of cucked faggots and there's nothing I can do to save this lost land. The fake virus here has turned everyone into a government bootlicker overnight. Nobody's willing to look at evidence or hear stories if they don't praise the government or exist to try and force sympathy out of others. Nobody wants to hear "those bastards are counting motorcycle accident deaths as covid deaths to inflate figures because of money" when everyone's too busy saying "waaaah poor me I can't go to the bar" or "Waaah poor me my obese granny got sick 5 months ago and it took her a week to recover, it's so scary and we've been scared all day because the TV said old people never recover and we're afraid she'll get sick again". Even people I thought I'd been redpilling on blacks and jews over months. Suddenly "we all need the NHS because muh virus and we need the vaccine because muh virus and we need to pwotect owh enn-eych-ess fwom da waycist covidiots who wanna charge old ladies and blacky-wacky pocky-wockies money for medical services". I fucking hate it. Even the bitch I'd been dating has gone woke and decided to stop seeing me/listening to me/reading my texts, so I blocked her. I feel like I'm an entire species apart from these apathetic soulless brainwashed supposedly-white niggers. Nobody wants to believe in the far-fetched and seemingly-delusional old myth that things were ever NOT this way. But where else could I go? Name one American place that would willingly oppose niggers, communists, Trump the jewish puppet, and the jewish fed. Name one country on the planet that says no to diversity, leftists, jews, marxism, and rapefugees. Name a site that isn't cucked beside this one, and an organization with the numbers and power needed to stop the jews. It all feels so fucking hopeless and I don't know what to do. I know I won't kill myself, because that wouldn't save anyone. But I don't know how I can save anyone.

>(You) give a (You) to him further derailing the thread and creating a automatic win for the glimmer nigger

Part of the problem is that none of that shit is actually required, nor is it needed. Just be respectful and polite to everyone that you meet, and leave it at that. People shouldn't be jumping through hoops in order to make the trash (That refuses to adapt or think better of themselves) feel welcomes.

And, that's also leaving out the fact that you should be aware of your audience. Yeah, business in America is handled very differently in comparison to how business is conducted in Japan. However, that doesn't mean that you torpedo your entire business model in both nations just to appeal to "both demographics". You handle your business in Japan the way other Japanese would, and you handle your business in America the way other Americans would. The ONLY time you deviate from that is when you see something could be more beneficial (Such as seeing a business process handled in a certain fashion in another country, and reworking it to suit the one you're doing business in).

Yeah, I hate the skew that book places and I recommend skipping the chapter altogether as it is intellectually worthless. You can tell that it's written for the brainwashed HR managers in MNEs. The descriptions of management theory that have been developed over a hundred years are quite useful, however, and it is a reliable master's-level management textbook in that regard.

This is known as polycentrism. The problem is that many international corporations pursue what is called geocentrism, which is having a one-size-fits-all (a.k.a. globalist) attitude towards business in every country. Ethnocentrism as described in the book isn't quite the same as how I would describe ethnocentrism: to me, it's looking after your own people first, but the implication of the book is that it's refusing to adapt your behavior to fit different cultural environments.
"Diversity" is a corporate buzzword that, despite all its claims, does not evidently provide benefits to institutions. Studies indicate that cultures which are very homogeneous or very heterogeneous (which is how I would describe old 4Chan) outperform those which have some heterogeneity. It's common sense that people of similar culture group up and form rivalries with other groups, yet for some reason a study was needed to prove this. Time and time again it's revealed that diversity isn't all it's cracked up to be yet it's glorified as a religion.

Sell High, Buy Low.
Problems, and the Solutions to them is what makes people throw money at you.
Money is just the means of converting Solutions to other Solutions.
Since everything is people all the way down, so is money.

Yes that's right.
>the world around you sort of ties into one and everything happens without coincidences and to believe coincidences are exist are just illusions,
Anything that can be a coincidence is magic, any kind of 'random event' is that across longer periods of time and space. The broader and more specific the scope the more of the coincidences look like something. 'Accidental' coincidences can be utilized by those that can play to what they do.
Using magic grows seeing.
Watching things is nice, whether it's in your mind or outside everything has something.
One exercise for general magic I like is clicking a 'random' button on a site that has it and try finding the meaning. Sometimes it's self fulfilling, other times it's more broad. The third random click brings up the number three is some way ect.
Very easy for any time.

Spirituality, and magic, is a commonality throughout peoples. How it turns out really depends on them, their self, and their ancestors I think. It does effect how it manifests. Importantly it's also you who makes the calls as well.

Considering when I was born it's kind of obvious now about how it's all connected. Taking a moment to look back through this lens it makes sense. Not sure how the fuck everything is coherent in that context. Mix and match has consequences, also might explain some early desires... actually it doesn't.

Some things will happen in a certain way after you have done a form of magic that will make you think of how you were told that nothing exists and you will see how things have been presented to you in a way like no other, it is then you will realize there are no such things as coincidences but instead that mysterious things have yet to be truly understood around us that for some twisted reason aren't shown to people and are told that they don't exist but yet when you see the light shine upon the world around you it will change your way of thought.
>The broader and more specific the scope the more of the coincidences look like something.
This is especially true when performing divination, if you can remember the cards that you got and think about them then you will know what they mean to you.
>Using magic grows seeing.
That's why the Egyptians used the all seeing eye as you see the world around you in it's full glory, it is the mastery of critical thinking and seeing.
>One exercise for general magic I like is clicking a 'random' button on a site that has it and try finding the meaning.
Usually i end up with very funny results when doing this.
>I am not a druid, or trained to be one, or anything. Maybe it's genetics, blood seeping through, but...
Neither am i, i have self taught myself everything i know, firsthand experiences are the best way to acquire knowledge, you may read a grimoire and self appoint yourself as some master edge lord but unless you actually do it, you do not know how, like reading a manual on how to fix a gun but then never be able to own one so you are not a true gun expert if you have never touched a gun, like you can't be a wizard if you have never caste a spell.
>Spirituality, and magic, is a commonality throughout peoples. How it turns out really depends on them, their self, and their ancestors I think.
Each race has a different form of a magic system from black voodoo to native American shamanism and Jewish kabbalah, the negro's that practiced voodoo magic have said themselves that when attempting voodoo upon a white man that it doesn't work the same way and that a Aryan cannot perform it.
Everything seems to point towards blood.

One step commonly seen in "get your life on track" programs is "buy nice clothes" along with "shower often" and "eat well" and "have a regular sleep schedule".

ITT we talk about clothes, deals, fashion, what comfortable high quality clothes are worth getting, good hiking boots and running shoes, what to wear to feel comfortable, and what to wear to look good.Fuck the brand ad meme t shirts featuring Rick and Morty and The Avengers! Fuck the anime sex face hoodies!

Pics unrelated, we don't have a "cursed gun" thread but shitty guns is a great weekly photoshop contest challenge topic.

>I just buy clothes and hope they fit.
About of it is trial and error for sizes. Luckily for mens it's roughly the same method of sizing between brands at least in the US. Helps if you need to get others to buy clothes that fit, or need to get alot without much fuss.
Clothes have purpose and technically the main one is to highlight your features. I prefer comfort, and ease of movement, but what matters to you is your preference and the situations you are in.

Guidelines of fashion and how you use it to your advantage.
You want others to believe something about you.
Dress for what you want others to percieve you as.
Successfully doing so they won't question anything. Failing and they might subconsciously know something is off. Not likely but possible.
Do it poorly and they will see through the disguise.
Imagine you are a spy, or a security testing specialist. You have a goal to get to the server room.
You need to dress, and act like the clothes you are wearing.
Going for an elevator maintenance outfit, having cursory knowledge, and convincing attitude.
People will think it's for regular maintenance. Letting you have free reign over it.
Dress as pizza delivery with a pizza and they will let you walk straight to the top if they have poor security measures.
Dress like an average Joe and you will be treated like an average Joe.
Dress like a basement dwelling slob and you'll be treated that way.
Dress like an important person convincingly you'll be treated as such. It's really wacky.

Okay so more fashion and what looks pleasing to the eye. I had no idea what the fuck to look for, but then I had to take a photography class once. It all boils down to some guidelines.
The Golden Ratio: it's everywhere in nature so our minds like it. It's also applicable to the human body.
The ratio can have an infinite amount of them, the most important one is the one eyes follow.
The Rule of Thirds: Basically the Golden Ratio but simplified. A quick and easy guide.
You can divide it however you want, and then keep dividing.

Color Composition: all hail the mighty color wheel.
Similar colors. They are colors next to the one you've chose.
Opposite colors. They are colors opposite to the one you've chose.

Texture composition, I know it was in here, but I can't remember right now.

With these you can coax eyes and minds to look where you want them to, and where you don't.
They are all guidelines, and this is not from an expert. The easiest way to explore this is to look at something and think of why it looks good.
You don't need expensive clothes, or fancy stuff all you need is to appeal to the eye. While having the right stuff helps, work with what you have.
TLDR: Imitate nature, think why it's pleasant.

Tartans, plaids or flannels.
There is a whole lot of different patterns and designs, most are associated with names but there are national tartans, county tartans, clan tartans, the chief's tartan which was used for the chief only and his immediate family, dress tartans were mainly used by women, hunting tartans and even mourning tartans and other designs that are the most known which are the black watch and royal Stewart, royal Stewart was the personal tartan of Elizabeth II and there was the rest of the royal tartans which only a royal could wear like the Balmoral tartan, there is history behind almost all of the old designs. The shirts are good for cold conditions, most of them are made out of cotton.
There's tam o' shanters as well, most of them are made out of lambswool and are good ear warmers but the tartan tams are more of a modern invention and in history they were usually tweed or solid colors.
There's 3 types of tartans, ancient, modern and muted, the ancient are supposed to look like the colors are fading away, modern tartans use non natural dyes and the muted which are meant to represent the older colors before the non natural dyes replaced the natural.
Then there is the kilts, the one most people know about is the modern one but there is also the more older one known as the great kilt (feileadh mòr) or the belted plaid which were the ones used predominantly by the Jacobite's and are literally a big piece of fabric that were anything from about 4 yards to 9 long.

You make a good point they are quite visibly striking, and a distinct history behind it.
Yeah, good news is that they are easily identifiable most of the time. They are remaining self contained. One of them probably a poster on the mlh thread they also made. They are really going ham on the information pumping, and disinfo.

Funny how people will laugh at someone in one despite them all wearing the same generic pants, shorts and T-shirts, they only act this way as they see them as not dressing like the rest of the tribe.
>Infact that's really stylish.
Yes, it has a certain aesthetic like no other form of style, the colors are so vibrant and pleasing to the eyes but are seldom used.
