Welcome to /ub/ - Überhengst
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.

Should I get therapy?
3153 3155 3174 4006 4267 4527
Is therapy just a joke, or is it worth getting? Who should I do therapy with? Can I trust my entire life's story with anyone who's not on this site?
Maybe if I tell you my life's story, you can give me life advice.

I was raised by abusive lefty parents who hated their smart white son and often tried to push me towards trannyism. Never fell for it.
First I was sent to a shit primary school. A few kids bullied me there and teachers punished me whenever I fought back. I was a fat angry kid who could punch hard when pushed, and they liked attacking me and then running away. But when we fought properly I'd kick their asses. One time I kicked their asses hard enough to make them stop bothering me.
When I graduated from this school I was sent to the special school of a catholic school, and made the personal property of one old bitch there who hated autistic kids. Around that era I got interested in Game Maker and pokemon romhacking but that interest never amounted to anything, though I did have a USB full of GBA roms and romhacking tools and the fact that I was able to code at such a young age when not all kids were learning that should have shown somebody that I had more to offer the world than shitty schools thought I should.
Thanks to that school, my schedule looked like this: Enter a side building, wait for the day to end, sometimes get insulted by the teachers if they felt like abusing me, usually get to eat lunch at lunchtime but sometimes they wouldn't let me (and it didn't matter whether I brought a packed lunch to school or brought money for the school cafeteria) and eventually go home to a house with parents that, when told the right words by my boomer bullies, would freak out and abuse me at home too. Rarely I'd get to join in a classroom... but class clowns would act up until I'd get blamed for it and sent out.
If I had a tape recorder or decent phone, I could have gathered evidence of the shit said/done to me (audio files of verbal abuse, pics of bruises, etc) and posted it online. But I was never allowed anything like that, because my parents feared I might use it on them. One day at school the art teacher bumped me with her car while backing up into a crowd of kids, I was fine but pissed off and the art teacher shrieked and blame-slinged feministically at me until I lost my patience and started barking back, then she put me in front of the headmaster and I told him about the abusive staff members and called him terrible at his job, so he kicked me out.
Then I was sent to a worthless "speshul" school where a few teachers abused me and the students usually watched in confusion when they weren't joining in. Whenever I trusted an adult enough to tell him or her what happened at home, that adult decided to call child protective services, who sent the same fucking boomer woman over to warn my parents that I was talking about what went on at home again. I couldn't get away from my family until I became the problem of Adult Protective Services, where the slightly less retarded and lazy people go.
A woman my age at the autistics-only youth club I attended got mad at me over retarded internet roleplaying nonsense-drama that didn't even involve me, and she lied about me to the cops and accused me of abusing her, even went to some clinic to fake signs of a concussion she didn't have because she's a spoilt bitch who knows how to play her rich parents like fiddles, she was a low-functioning sociopath woman with histrionic personality disorder and every retarded boomer's sympathy. She lied and got away with it, because the cops weren't interested in this case after she cartoonishly fucked up and started gloating about physically assaulting me without realizing it hurt her case. But even though I said to the managers of the youth club and the friends I knew there "If what she said about me was true I'd be in jail so you know she's lying" they couldn't believe me because they were dumb. There was one weird creepy fucker I used to talk to online because his "woe is me, asian school life is sooo hard" shit kind of reminded me of me at the time, but he got severe TDS and stopped being a person once he stopped viewing me as a person so I'm glad I didn't tell him anything sensitive or identifiable that could fuck me over later in life.
Anyway when I went to college, I was lied to and exploited by the staff until I dropped out. They even tricked me into taking a worthless course that turned out to be the dump where they dump the autistic kids and give them a useless fake newspaper to write. I wish I dropped out sooner, trying to live on barely fucking anything is hard enough when your mom took govt money meant for you, but it's harder when you're forced to spend most of your cash on train rides between your college and shitty home every two weeks and all your cunt government can offer is a discount pass. Now that I'm living alone, I've got a free bus pass I can barely use. Government priorities, am I right?

I am an autistic man, I'm 24 years old, I'll be 25 next year, and I've spent so much of my life as property of someone else that I find it hard to notice when I'm hungry or tired and remember that I should eat or sleep without someone or a phone alarm telling me to. I shower every night before bed but sometimes I miss meals, it's what helped me go from obese fatty to only-slightly-overweight. I don't think I know what it feels like to be loved by someone else. Learning makes me happy and I love documentaries but when I tried an online free learning site it reminded me of school and I couldn't do it. Sometimes I talk to people and act charming like those "Charisma on command" youtube vids told me so they'll like me, but I've never given anyone my full backstory before. The only woman in my life I ever kissed was that bitch who falsely accused me and got away with it. I want to say I have no interest in modern women but I still feel the urge to wank to them. But I don't wank any more because of nofap.

Hey guys, did you know that in terms of water-based Pokemon, Vaporeon can learn Mist in Yellow, but only under a very specific circumstance? In Yellow, Vaporeon is meant to learn both Haze and Mist at level 42. However, the programming at the time is so bad it's impossible for a Pokémon to learn two moves at the same level. As a result, Vaporeon will only learn Haze and not Mist. Pokémon who leveled up using the Daycare do not have this restriction though. If Vaporeon reaches level 42 while in the Daycare, it will learn both Haze and Mist.
Faggot: Based? Based on what?

Seeing the inside of an Asian woman's house recently (don't ask why) and admiring all the trophies and awards on the wall made me think of Lilkirbs memes about putting achievement signifiers on his wall. I decided to do that too but on my computer desktop because my tiny room's walls are cupboard and shelves hell.
Moved stuff around in my room to open up more space for exercising.
Did you know? Viral Chao are some hidden Chao in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. They are a group of unique Chao intended to be released at official events in the style of event Pokémon of the Pokémon games. There are five Viral Chao: Baki, Farfinkle, Fimbley, Pooki, and Stugs. However, Stugs was the only Viral Chao ever officially distributed to the public, as due to poor attendance and sales, the other four chao events were cancelled. However, game-altering devices can be used to unlock the remaining Viral Chao. Codes, which can be found in the official Japanese website of Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, can be used in the Chao Garden to unlock all but Farfinkle. The cheat codes, however, will only work for the Japanese version of the game.
Farfinkle was not included in the list of unlockable Viral Chao in the Japanese release because it has a severe glitch causing 'KO' to be a status effect. If this happens, the affected enemy may try a POW move but cannot, forcing the player to shut their Nintendo DS down. This is the only Chao not released to the public.

Did they even fucking try with Sonic Chronicles?
Homosexuals are disgusting. They like disgusting shit like hypnosis. Imagine basing your entire identity around the desire to live the easy life of a cute woman, and then fantasizing about losing your free will to hypnotism and being forced to become an even bigger faggot. If you want to be brainwashed into embracing faggotism fully wouldn't that mean you subconsciously know this is bullshit? Peak homosexuality, fucking disgusting. I am extremely racist too. And do you know what else is gay? Gay fanfics where a character is corrupted. Straight men make stories where women are "corrupted" into useful wet holes and breeding tools. Faggots make stories where men are genuinely corrupted and turned into faggy disgraces. Gays are homosexual, fuck gays.

Cook your food

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!

cooking oils
Some stuff I learned about cooking oils recently.
I would consider this to be extremely important and everyone should at least take into consideration for maintaining health.
I can't say much for this specific website, but it checks out my sniff test based on my soap making experience, my long time cooking enthusiast self, and cross-referencing with other websites on the matter.

Oils processed from various foods (olives, seeds, nuts, grains...) break down/oxidize/go rancid over an amount of time, generally on the order of months to a few years. How fast they go rancid depends on temperature, humidity, exposure to light, and probably what they are being used to cook with.
All of these oils are composed of various different fatty acids that do different things at different temperatures or exposed to different chemicals (like when making soap or cooking with garlic or whatever). Some oils will last longer than others or start burning at higher temperatures because their fatty acid chemical makeup is different. It is impossible to get an oil that is composed of only one of these fatty acids, so we just have to make due with overall oil composition.

Common street knowledge is that deep fried shit is shit for your health.
Most of the time this is correct. The main reason is that restaurants reuse the oil over and over again at relatively high temperatures. They typically use canola oil, corn oil, or some other similar vegetable oil that won't burn at the higher temps. They (likely) won't change the oil out until the oil is far past its rancid state. It is oil that has gone rancid that is very unhealthy, not strictly because something is deep fried. Oil goes rancid much quicker at higher temperatures.

How do you know if oil has gone rancid?
As near as I can tell the only way most people test is if it smells bad. I'd also say throw the oil away if its past the "best by" date. Or maybe burn the oil in an oil lamp or your diesel truck or generator instead of throwing it in the dumpster. Companies processing the oils test for the totox value, or probably other similar tests.

What happens when you consume rancid oil?
Cancer, among other things.
>Plant-based oils, such as safflower oil and sunflower oil, contain plenty of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) which oxidize easily in the presence of light, heat, or oxygen in the air. Many of the oxidation products of PUFAs have been reported to have cytotoxic (toxic to cells) and mutagenic (capable of changing the DNA) effects. Cytotoxic and mutagenic substances are commonly known to increase the risk of cancer, and indeed, a 2002 study published in the journal Anticancer Research reported that rancid oils not only appear to be involved in tumor promotion but also in tumor initiation. This study was carried out on mice, and rancid corn oil was used as the source of spoiled fatty acids.

Technically my research into this subject started when I started making soap. One of the first things I came across was the "dreaded yellow spots" that appeared in my bars of soap. Turns out those come from rancid oils being used, and the soap making process does not preserve the oils in anyway either. So I learned of the relationship between temp, humidity, and age of oils to how quickly they go rancid. I just didn't make the connection of rancid soap to rancid cooking oils until recently, because I'm a dumbass.

In the soap making world, canola, sunflower, safflower, grapeseed, and corn oils are considered crap to use because they go rancid rather quickly. You can often find these oils in beard oils too, not because they are good for the skin or hair, but because they are cheap filler oils used to make more money with.
Once upon a time, crysco was developed as an attempt to make cottonseed oil last longer for the soap manufacturers at the time. Since then, they instead moved away from cottonseed oil and instead focused on a vegetable shortening product to replace lard with for baking. Lard and tallow are extremely long-lasting oils that are high in saturated fatty acids, along with most other oils that are solid at room temperature.
One time I had an FDA paid "expert" dietitian try to tell me that saturated fatty acid oils like coconut oil was unhealthy, specifically calling out coconut oil. These people want you to get cancer and die. But (you) already knew that, right?

As near as I can tell, "saturated fats are unhealthy" is a hit to promote the canola oil and vegetable oil industry paid for by companies like pillsbury (they make crysco) to the FDA.

Even though olive oil is really healthy, at this point I would not recommend using it for pan frying much of anything because of how easily it burns and breaks down. Grapeseed oil is really healthy too but goes rancid rather quickly, but at least it does not burn at lower temps. I would recommend frying everything in either coconut oil or lard. Lard is really good because you can make sure your guests are not islamist shitheads or kikes.

tl;dr don't buy cooking oils that are a few months away from the "best by" or expiration date. Throw away smelly oils. The shit causes cancer.
I got an instapot and finally figured out how to make amazing refried beans. The canned stuff is inedible and makes me sick now, so i had to learn how to do this so i could eat all the kinds of meals i had growing up. Also been making pinto bean hummus or bean dip

Also got a breadmaker and it's super easy, just drop ingredients in and you have a fresh hot loaf 3 hours later. I make grilled tuna and cheese sandwiches with it, and PB toast and stuff.

I feel like I should clarify a couple things a bit.
I am not saying grapeseed oil or olive oil are less healthy than coconut oil or lard or other highly saturated fats. I am saying because grapeseed oil and olive oil go rancid a lot faster, and because of the difficultly to detect when they go rancid, that saturated fats are (probably) overall healthier for you.

I've been noticing that most of the lower saturated fat oils contain TBHQ as an "oxidizer prevention agent". It is a synthetic chemical used to inhibit the oxidization, or oil-going-rancid process. I do not suspect TBHQ is unhealthy in small amounts, but more study should be done than just a passing glance.
Oils (sometimes? most of the time?) have citric acid added to help preserve flavor. I suspect this is what makes rancid oil more difficult to detect with the sniffer, but at least its fine for consumption.

I have rendered my own tallow before from a slab of suet. The suet was 5lbs and I got about 3lbs 11 ounces of useful oil out of it, or about a 75% return of useful oil from the suet. Lard or Tallow will keep a very, very long time, especially if stored in the refrigerator. 5 years? 10? More?

Anyway, that's about all I know about oil longevity and overall health risks.
Just make sure to buy oils that have an expiration date of more than a year in the future.

>I am not saying grapeseed oil or olive oil are less healthy than coconut oil or lard or other highly saturated fats
I'll say it then.
Olive or coconut oil for low-medium temp, bacon fat for medium-high temp, and peanut or avocado oil for high temp.
This is to do with the smoke point of the oils, which when burned make the oils increasingly less digestable, while also negatively impacting the flavor.
'Okay' oils (which I still dont recomend) include grapeseed and sunflower. Avoid canola (genetically modified) and cottonseed (likewise) like the plague. Only use lard if you dont like who you're cooking for, in fact avoid ALL major manufactured 'name brand' oils and shit. They just figured out a way to market what was otherwise waste product from other areas of heavy processing.

What is the Psychology of Bronies

What is the Psychology of Bronies; of Grown Men Who Love My Little Pony?

That was a really good video.

It is well worth watching it all.
It's about autism and psychology.
The subject is approached from an academic angle. At not time bronies are bad mouthed.
watching it right now... meh. He seems to be completely missing the shitposting meme values.
It would be interesting to hear his take if he went into the chan part of the fandom too.
Just finished watching it, and yeah, this guy missed at least 1/3 of the reason why MLP is so popular. Probably closer to 1/2

I wouldn't say its 'the chans', though that was a big part of it early on. The bigger picture would be the age of memes. I've been an IRC junkie for a lot of years, about double the amount of time ponies has been around. When somebody says or posts something anywhere (IRC, random forum, comment section of video) and either enough people get upset or the correct person (the target) gets upset, there was success.
This kind of trolling has been a hallmark of hackers since the beginning of the term 'hackers' in the 1950's. There is a rather large portion of IT or similar people in the MLP fandom who get very triggered very easily. I think that is largely the more conservative bronies trolling the more liberal faggoid bronies. Still seems to be happening quite a lot today too. Just look in a mirror and ask yourself: Why do I post on mlpol?

Really that's the main reason why I find myself around here recently, even though I've never interacted with any chan shit before. With companies like google, amazon and similar picking up more autistic brony fagbots to run various portions of the computer side of the business (AKA censoring the entire internet), it makes mlpol and similar places extremely important strongholds for the future.

Narcissism Thread
3957 4370 314427 319411
Hey /üb/, how much do you know about Narcissism?
I'd like to direct your attention to Dr. Ramani Dursavula - clinical psychologist, professor at CSU LA, author, youtuber etc, and arguably the leading authority on Narcissism.
The problem with Narcissism as a clinical disorder is that it doesnt bear any of the classical signs of a disorder; the people who bear the symptoms of a narcissistic relationship are not the narcissist themselves, but the people around them. The problem is exacerbated by the fact that narcissists are over-represented in otherwise successful, prestigious, and competitive professions, fields, and careers, effectively calling into question the idea of dysfunction and disorder.
Narcissistic abuse is real, and it's a problem that is not getting any better by the cultural shifts brought about by mass media and technology. What's more, it isnt just the narcissist one has to be on the lookout for, there are plenty of people out their doing the bidding (they're called 'flying monkeys', ala the Wizard of Oz) of narcissists.
Arguably the worst trait of narcissists and those who work on their behalf is that of Gaslighting, which is the deliberate undermining of a person, their perspective/experience, reputation and standing, and other social interactions.
As an easy example, let's look at CNN. Let's assume for a moment that Brian Stelter, Rachel Maddow, Chris Quomo and Don Lemon arent malignant narcissists. I know, but bear with me.
It doesnt matter for those mentioned to not be narcissists if their job is to gaslight on behalf of Jeff Zucker. And what are some examples of gaslighting? Russian hackers, Quid pro quo, Epstein killed himself, Hunyer Biden, and of course muh Covid. A person can be gaslit hundreds or even thousands of times a day just by watching the TV, and that says nothing about their interpersonal interactions.
Let's look at things from a broader scope, and I'll throw out a few names. Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Dorsey, Er8c Schmidt. How many times has one or more of their companies abused one or more individuals on their platform, and has publically denied it even in the face of evidence?
The purpose of this thread is to provide examples of narcissism as well as resources and information that can enable a gradually emerging /üb/erpony to better navigate the world and some of the more nefarious players they may come into contact with. To start things off, here are some good primer videos to broach the subject, by Dr Ramani. She has hundreds of videos ranging from 6-20+ depending on how deep she goes with each topic, all relating ultimately to Narcissism, abuse, awareness, and healing. As one who has lived with narcissistic abuse for years and am only now becoming better able to identify/detect and mitigate the presence and practices of narcissists (most especially malignant ones), my hope is that the content is as informative and actionable to the viewer as I have found it.

The following video was taken during an interview with Paul Bernardo, a convicted sex offender and murderer.
This video takes place 17 years after his conviction and was conducted in trying to investigate for any info that might help solve a number of associated cases.
But where it shines is by it making a stunning case for the incorrigibility of a narcissist, regardless of the circumstances they find themselves in. Observe how he avoids any acknowledgement of responsibility or fault, even though his guilt has long since (17 years) been concluded.
This is the level of honesty and responsibility one can expect from a narcissist. Any apparent consolation is a manipulation int3nded to try and control the situation by.
Obviously, not all narcissists are so heinous, but the manipulations and the why (control) are the consistent variables.
Narcissists are sexy.
I want an emotionally-unstable mare with a crystal ego who refers to herself in third person.
I want to crush Trixie's fragile ego like a soda can.
>A scapegoat is a person who is blamed for the mistakes or sins of another person.
>Scapegoating is often done to get the scapegoater off the hook, leaving the scapegoat holding the bag, and the beat goes on.

This video focuses on scapegoating in a family dynamic, specifically in childhood; however, in observance that - outside lengthy processing and individual work - people tend to play out the roles in adulthood that they are familiar with from childhood, it can equally apply to the environments that narcissists foster whether professionally, economically, socially, etc., as well as the permissiveness a scapegoat may apply when finding themselves in such a dynamic later in life.

Mares in Manufacturing Matter
4449 18745
tl;dr: post shit about how to machine or manufacture shit here. Being able to make shit makes you more of a man with bigger balls.

Lets start on the political side of manufacturing with a USA centric theme.
Once upon a time, USA was the best. It was the best because it allowed anyone to build anything they wanted and purchase anything they wanted. After all, things you own are tools, and tools are needed to survive. Why should the government put any kind of restrictions on tools needed to survive?
Well, over the years, that is exactly what they did, because the more difficult it is for you to survive with less (or incorrect) tools. The more difficult of a time you have surviving, and the less you can do something about the government.

The greatest of all these is the ability to make more tools or better tools. In the modern vernacular, this is called machining, manufacturing, fabricating, and a lot of others that are more industry specific. I suppose the second greatest ability is to be able to protect such things, but that is outside the scope of this shitpost.

Why is the ability to build [tools] important? Because it lets you, the invisible hand, be able to swiftly deal with governments (problems) how you see fit in ways that nobody can anticipate. Why do you think policies being pushed through has been moving businesses over seas? The government does not want you to know how to make shit. Workers unions have not been nice either, but as near as I can tell that is the result of a different symptom (greed). In either case, bureaucracy is a hindrance to market (you: the invisible hand’s) agility.

I could rant about all the stupid shit in various markets that result in what I already said, but instead I’d rather focus on shit that will make a better life for you. In general, focusing on the use of lathe and mill work. Lets start with the stupid basics.

Example of CNC lathe in use: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lcGHtI9Lql4
Example of CNC mill in use: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHstzxuryMk
Admittedly both examples are with machines that are a bit fancier than what might be typically found, but that does not change anything other than how many times a part is handled before it is finished.

Using a lathe is called turning a part. Using a mill is called milling a part. Turning and milling parts, along with some of the more exotic methods of cutting material (such as waterjet or EDM or centerless grinding machines), is called machining.

While I don’t follow the religion of safety (the reason why ppl are so worried about C-19 to begin with), there are certain things shat should be done or not done to keep all your limbs attached to your body. Things like leaving the chuck key in and walking away. Or wearing a long sleeve shirt and reaching around the quill of the mill while its on. Don’t be a dumbass and instead use that head attached to that white neck of yours.

What I’d like to do from time to time is post in here about various machining and manufacturing practices, tips, tricks, and methodology at large.
Remember though, its not about me, its about giving you the knowledge and tools to become richer yourself. If you have a question or something related, go ahead and post it.

Weird, I havent done anything to get a new ID. IDFK
One of the things I've always wondered is where you can find the most local wood mill.
I have known several people with their own, but I can't imagine trying to find one after moving to a new place.

>that scar on the little finger
Band-saw mills (portable or fixed) are much more common these days, and alot of millers/sawyers have listings on faceberg. Also, check with any local tree services, I guarantee they know someone.

Whether milling or contracting (fully 60% of my income is from private subcontracting) the most valuable thing you can have is a reputation for being a solid, hard worker
Especially as things get more hairy with vaccines and mandates and shit, if you're out in the country you're within a 10 mile radius of prolly 5 ranches that need hard workers. And, when you do good work, they'll tell their friends.
Dont wanna do subcontracting? Neither do I, but you better if you wanna have the social connections you're gonna need to survive when supply chains shut down, and infrastructure begins to collapse.
Just finished a 3-day job where my cut was 1.5k for 1400' of 4-strand barb wire. Dont worry, Ill get back to playing with wood, this iz just some theory/philosophy and a bit of strategy.
Cuz rn, especially with everyone scared of covid, its near impossible to make a living with a private mill. But, if you can establish yourself as a hard worker and contractor - ideally with periodic fine wood products for sale - who also happens to have a mill, your reputation will precede you. Especially if you're the guy who's missing a finger tip. Literally, they call me pointless.
Heres a pic of a recently cut post-oak stump. You can see the initial cut on the right, with the drop-cut on the left (drop-cut being the cut that causes the tree to fall). The thin spiky section is what holds the log until it hits the ground and separates from the stump. You want this, as it helps to guide the log during the fall. NEVER CUT TREES DOWN IN HIGH WIND. Ask OSHA how many fatalities they have from people thinking that a breeze wont affect the dropping of trees.
Also, nrver drop trees without a spotter. By that I mean, never drop trees without someone watching everything going on, ready and waiting to grab ur ass bybthe collar and drag you away from getting killed.
This is NOT hyperbole. It is astonishingly easy to get yourself killed while felling logs. When felling trees, if the log grts hung up and wont fall cuz of another tree, they call those 'widow-makers'. That too isnt hyperbole. Please be safe.
>Correction for angle
The wedge cut is on the north side, the drop cut is on the south side.

Nofap tips

I'm coming to my wits end with this shit. I'm getting tired of feeling drained and passionless towards what I used to love. I want to write again. I want to enjoy playing games again. I want to wake up and not feel like I got to fap first just to get out of bed. I want to feel something other then nothing.

The thing is when I try I always fall right back in. I've made it three days and I saw some cleavage and suddenly got horny I thought I would collapse. I left and had to drive home but the urge would go away! I couldn't fight it and I felt so disgusted with myself. The moment I got home, I had to jerk it.

How do you guys deal with these urges? How do I get a life back?

This thread is inspiring for me to take on non fap challange
In my past when I used to serve as conscript in my nation's army during boot camp I didn't fap through all of it (6 weeks)

Couple months back I have did test to see how my brain reacts to non fap. And I noticed strong urges come at start and at end of week. But if I resists it I know that it will be eazier to march forward.

Like some have pointed out being idle (Or bored) makes you want to act more on your urges which would make you fail non fap. Additional when you have urges resisting migth not be enough, so another thing is to remove temptations.
You would say porn is everywhere, how to do it ? Well just make it harder for you access porn when compered to something else you want to do. Idk how if it is in west how I have seen but everything is very sexualized, and even lewd text (which could be enough for you to bust nut) is eazily avaible.
What I would propose is to plan your day in such matter there you wouldnt have enough time to fap. If you really want you can fill your day fully, one ways is getting some shoes and just doing exploring of your local area. And choosing more difficult terrain, like hills and rivers. Additional think about going to gym and self improvement. Also lastly if you have anger issues, try some figthing sport to release excess energy.

If you do a'lot of stuff you will notice that you don't really have even time to think about fapping, plius you are improving yourself and thus raising your sexual market place value. And that could lead to girl approaching you.

Now persoanlly I want to quit porn entirely. Since I think it is useless and possibly just fuels impossible fantazies.
The only possible down side I see, is that I migth not last a long in bed, if I don't have regular fapping sessions
You can't force a meme. Liberals are usually narcissistic and lazy.

I know why!
Because Leftists rely on several layers of deception to be okay with the constant lies without upsetting other contradictory lies they also rely on, their memes need to be WORDSWORDSWORDS to establish what you have to believe currently before the "observational comedy" or "joke" makes any kind of half-logic.
Meanwhile we can make jokes with as few words as possible, watch this:
"Anti-capitalist shirts for sale".
>for sale
I get it.
>Vaush Vs Dr. E. Michael Jones | Is Porn a Net Negative for Society? Debate Podcast
>Dr. E. Michael Jones and Vaush debate whether Porn is negative for Society. Does sexual liberation darken the mind, or enslave the will into debauchery? Can sterile masturbation, fantasized relationships, and detaching sexuality from it's natural order toward procreation really progress society? Does pornography fracture the soul and delete any sense of moral character from the mind of those addicted to it? Is "coombrain" real, and can it lead to obesity, obscenity, intellectual contradiction, and the replacement of offspring with cats? Will censoring pornography literally lead to an epidemic of drift-wood-porn black markets? These immortal modern questions and many more are answered in this stunning debate between an opposing intellect.

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.

Wise words from Nixon. This one surprised me.
It's important to not care what other people think, so long as one doesnt remain ignorant of what other people think

IIT we discuss and study the Bible. I will be using the King James Version and will take the stance of a fundamental literalist, which is a bit redundant, but these days there exist many that claim to be fundamental but reject the literal interpretation of Scripture when they encounter something they don't agree or understand. I am not a Bible scholar, I'm not a pastor, I don't currently attend any denomination's church service. I'm just an anon that really like to study the Bible. Feel free to argue with me, I could be completely wrong and I hope to learn more about the Bible along the way.

I will post below my first study topic and what I have researched about it. Hopefully it will be interesting and somewhat engaging.

I've been thinking, in revelations and daniel, there are 10 "kings" that give power to the antichrist. What if those kings are actually CEOs? A CEO is probably closer to the kind of rule a king had back in the day anyway.

Any thoughts on this?
Allow me to suggest that it more likely refers to bloodlines/families than CEOs, as that would include CEOs as well
I would say so, and they are much more relevant than heads of state (at least most of them) who are puppets and switched out frequently. Bill Clinton is no longer relevant, but Bill Gates still is, even if he isn't technically the CEO of Microsoft.
right... that's why I was thinking about it and said something "you know, this kinda makes more sense in today's climate". The uprooting of three kings could simply mean trade agreement levies against three large companies to the degree that they wither and die.

One of the things that is going to happen is God is going to utterly smite and destroy a central trading city used by the entire world. If USA is so far gone in recession like its shaping up to be, then what is left that can be considered a central trading hub for the world?
Dubai? It is already considered the richest city in the world. I don't know how much general trade goes on there though, or if things are moving in that direction for Dubai.
Right now I would still consider it to be new york simply because of the stonk exchange. However markets are getting ready to implode because of the impending collapse of the USD and government lockdowns over a fake virus.
Are there lots of people in Dubai doing crypto currency trading?

Remember, the tribulation only lasts 7 years. If USA collapses economically and puts the global trade focus on the middle east (or somewhere else), it would be much longer than 7 years to rebuild what was lost.

oof wow this IS low res holy shit.jpeg
I think I have an idea for everyone here, with or without homes, to take control of their finances and/or lifestyle. /nomad/: Homeless/traveling advice, personal stories, finances, what have you. If you've seen someone talking about homeless living on this site, that's usually me. I've done it before but now I'm seeing all kinds of opportunities and fun from it since I'm not being bled dry by debt. So I think I'll share a little advice:

Can't fit everything in a car or bag/cart? Buy a storage unit; between $25 and $75 depending on quality of storage. Put anything you don't want stolen in there, lower your back seat, and sleep with your legs in the trunk. With a blanket and pillow you can get a comfortable rest, and with a simple black fabric long enough to cover your windows/windshield, you won't need to worry about the sun or onlookers. You can also get a dolly for your car, or a trailer. This can also be taken advantage of if you want somewhere to sleep other than your car, since teardrops can be under 1000 pounds (light enough for a small sedan to tow), or even as light as 500 pounds (light enough for a bike to tow).

Want clean and ironed clothes? Get a fabric dresser; I found one at the Lidl grocery store (pic related), comes with a bunch of metal rods and connectors with little fabric shelves. One piece is a hanging bar you can put ironed shirts on. It fits in the aforementioned 5x5 storage space perfectly, and fits more than two duffel-bags' worth of clothing easily and neatly with several shelves for underwear, undershirts, or what have you.

Don't want to waste money on fast food or stick to shitty canned goods just to eat and survive? A butane or propane coil-stove runs a very small fee and fits damn near anywhere; I got a collapsible stainless-steel charcoal grill that is about the size of a Swiss Army duffel-bag and has space for almost anything. It can be used to boil impurities out of water, brew tea or coffee, grill foods with a heavy patty press or a broiler basket, all kinds of stuff. You can also get a cooler and get a bag of ice each week for anything you need chilled like meat or dairy. I'm going to read Cooked: A History of Transformation to accompany my own culinary journey~

Need to keep your hygiene on point? Don't want to waste a bunch of money on baby wipes to keep your face grime-free? Get a gym membership. At $10 a month, Planet Fitness' base membership lets you hang around one specific PF location with showers, sinks with mirrors for shaving at, and of course all the goodies you'd want at a gym. Upgrade said membership for I think $12 extra and you can also get access to a damn sauna, on top of being able to go to any PF you want, ideal for traveling while remaining fit (and in my case, getting cardio in without a sunburn).

Need a residential address, not just a mailing address/PO box? Go to the Salvation Army in your area; many of them offer amenities such as a temporary residential address/forwarding address, and if you ask, they can even set you up with an address not outwardly affiliated with them, so prospective employers don't think you're living in a shelter and may be more likely to hire you.

I gotta tell ya, guys, going homeless (intentionally and not just out of desperation) was the best decision I've ever made in my life. Ever.

I haven't had work for more than two weeks yet. First job shut its doors right on payday for a menu change. Second job had a 90 day probationary period, soaked my clothes through to the underwear, and left my hands with heat-induced blisters from just two days of work before I woke up late and gave up.

I'm starting to think that my problems in life all stem from my perfectionism, slowness, and hatred of social environments. For years I've tried to find trade-work and labor jobs over the bullshit service work modern society is built on now, and for years I've been impoverished, dependent on family, and in debt. I don't have any advice this time around, I just wanted to vent. I'm tired and sleep hasn't been helping.

try looking in whatever area you want to try staying at in the phonebook for machine shop jobs. Try staying away from manufacturing shops running only a few different products, instead jobsearching in job shops.

as the OP for mares in manufacturing matters >>4034 → I can say that such shops are always looking for profectionists.

Update: I'm actually at a job I really enjoy. Jiffy Lube gives experience for car shops, and it's entry level. Never overly heavy traffic, chill staff, uniform is easy to maintain and cheap, and I make almost $10 an hour for fulltime. That's up to $1600 a month, which is more than rent. On top of that, I have plenty of energy even after a high traffic day, so I'm running at the treadmill and applying for a second job part time on nights.

I am still scrimping by right now. Credit's under a dollar remaining, debit's overdrawn due to a sneak charge almost a week after the purchase that didn't show up on my banking statement, so I'm pretty much working on whatever change I can snag from under cars' floormats at Jiffy now. I just barely had enough today to get a McChicken and recharge my laptop for my night-job applications. Thankfully my food supply is doing decent and work guys buy each other breakfast and snacks all the time. My remaining ramen and pretzels are enough for about a week. Out of gum, but I do have tea tools. Just need to figure out where I put my mlpol mug in the storage unit, then I can use my butane stove to boil water for morning tea.

Just an update for the Payday fren if he checks here again. I don't plan on updating for a while. I can't afford to post here lately. Might not show up again period. If you're out there, payday fren, I'll keep this thread on my tabs for about a week. I might provide a mode of contact for you before deleting the post. Just keep an eye out.
There's the contact info, Payday anon. You've got until my first Arby's shift before I baleet and fuck off.

At an Arby's now, having filled out employment forms there. So that makes one full time and one part time job. Can't guarantee I'll like Arby's, but it's something I could manage part time without feeling horrible. My friend and fellow former~ permavirgin has yet to set up his checking account with the money he's had saved up so we can talk to the local apartment complex and get set up there; either way my income alone is enough to handle rent and change, so it shouldn't be more than three weeks before I'm off the streets and paying my shit back down.

Zoomers working together to make shit happen though. Between the two of us, we've got three jobs and enough income to pay even the most exorbitant rent in town with under half our income. The wait for next Friday is killing me, but by snagging change from under customers' floormats, I'm still getting by in terms of gas and wifi-hogging-at-McDonald's money. Temperatures are hitting sub-40-degree levels most nights now though, and neither bundling up in triple-layered blankets nor wearing an insulated jacket and long johns has helped with that yet...

See you, /ub/, and mlpol as a whole.
Sounds like you need to de-humidify. Maybe have enough thermal mass in whatever space to keep the temperature stable (such as a wax foot heater, or water in jugs, etc.)
Hey, don't forget an air filter or functional mask.
Fuck the fake cloth diapers the jews want us wearing, but I wear proper air-filtering masks now with replaceable filters and they help me breathe easier.
