Welcome to /ub/ - Überhengst

No.3
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!

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.

Apparently linuxCNC works with the Raspberry Pi 4 - http://linuxcnc.org/

It works reasonably well because the Pi4 has an FPGA built in.

some other rando anons watching this thread but asking outside of here >What are the different kinds of shops out there?
I'm going to skip mechanic shops and other similar things, focusing on different kinds of manufacturing shops.

Lets take a glance at how resources move around for most steels, and other alloys.
Open pit mine -> steel mill/foundry -> distribution warehouse -> manufacturing shop -> [other warehouse likely, maybe two] -> retail store -> you
that's just a generic resource flow, there are many deviations to this of course, even at large scales, but it's still more or less what happens.

Steel mills take raw resources and work them over, adding precise amounts of each kind of material to mix into an alloy.
Foundry, or pattern shop, is used for casting large volumes of things, not uncommon to have 10% or sometimes higher rejection rate (because of voids in the castings). No material is wasted, it just gets melted back down and tried again.
Forge is where they take raw materials and either roll them (multiple times) or hammer them into a useful shape.

Heh, I had to do a little bit of internet searching on those, and even then it might not be quite right, as those are not things I interact with at all. It is the job of the metallurgist to make sure the correct alloy with the correct mechanical properties of the casting/forging/shaping thing it requires. Most of these things are defined standards such as cold rolled 1018 steel bars, a brake caliper casting used in cars, or a forged 7075 aluminum frame used for an AR15 rifle receiver.
Those kinds of shops tend to be really high volume, because it is easier to build that sort of equipment for higher volumes. Regardless of what kind of material processing is used, they all end up in a manufacturing shop somewhere, and in my hands to finish getting shaped into something useful.

In the machinist world, there are two main divisions: Job Shop and Production Shop.
There are deticated job shops or support job shops. Deticated job shops are pretty easy to find in the phone book listed under machine shops.
What I am calling support job shops are much more illusive. A large farm might have a lathe and a mill to fix farm equipment with. An electric motor repair company will have a small machine shop to repair bearing surfaces from the bearing that siezed up and melted. I've heard the navy will have a small machine shop on the larger ships to fix various things that might break. I've seen offset printer shops have their own machine shop to make various things to keep the high-volume printers going.

Production shops generally only make one kind of product, with small variations to that product. Sometimes a production shop will only utilize lathes and mills, but most of the time they use purpose-built equipment.
For example, machines making plastic sheets. These machines will likely be able to make plastic trash bags, but also able to make the thicker plastic sheets used to cover harvisted crops or as a sealed barrier under a house. Perhaps also the plastic wrap used for food as well as wrapping up pallets for shipping purposes.
The company making lighters, zippo, uses brass and a big stamping machine to form the outer shell of the lighter. I will bet that it is the same machine they used in WW2 making the same lighers.
Some production shops will only be making one kind of product, but with normal CNC mills or CNC lathes. For example a company selling pipelines to oil companies. They will have CNC lathes set up for turning the end and threading the pipe. Their entire shop will be optimized for offloading steel pipe from various trucks, storage, and moving the pipes into lathes.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCgnWqoP4MM - building the steam controller
Here you can see a typical modern production shop with lots of fancy deticated equipment designed and set up to make one product.

Most of the work I do is prototype these days, or sometimes making difficult-to-machine parts in a small production run on the order of hundreds or less.

Should I get therapy?

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.

True. Women ain't shit but hoes and tricks, and the trick is that they say we live in a society when really we're slaves in a gynocentric matriarchal jewocracy.

Always found it funny how when YIIK got attacked by SJWs, he tried going to gamers and saying "Fuck SJWs" but they weren't impressed with his game either. Gamers don't hate SJWs because they're arbitrarily opposed, gamers hate SJWs because SJWs are pure evil and on a quest to conquer everything, even entertainment.

On the surface YIIK looks pozzed as hell. Gay-ass characters with gay-ass appearances and turbo gay personality traits. Even the main hero's designed to look like an obnoxious self-insert.

Below the surface it's an intentionally unfun game designed to be unpleasant. Making it a bad game by definition.

If this is also art, this piece of art and the choices made involving its development (and how its best ending is locked to a developer-only youtube account) seem to say "Fuck gamers, they're puppets playing into artificial narratives where they get to be the hero. But if the devs don't let gamers get the secret ending where they're the hero, only the devs can unlock that ending".

The hero's a whiny twat but he only grows out of that in the developer-only ending, so there is no growth in the version of the game players get to experience. I guess you could call this "ARG Shenanigans" but a piece of media's quality should be there even without any external pieces of media. We should be able to enjoy a game without relying on information or content in the enclosed instruction book and movie and ARG puzzle bullshit and TV series and mobile game spinoff and prequel and three sequels and youtube-only four-episode series of animated shorts. All that extra shit can enhance media but it shouldn't be required to enjoy the media.

Meanwhile because the game makes the stupid hipster protagonist a cunt everyone who plays the game will hate, actual hipster cunts hate it for holding a mirror to their faces and making them shriek "Ugly!".

The developer referenced the real vanishing of an asian woman and the IRL speculation on her kidnapping or something, in a game where everything that happens is bullshit intended to give the protagonist shit to do. His universe really does revolve around him like he thinks it does. I guess you could call that insulting to the real asian woman, but the dev wanted this to say "White people don't care when nonwhites disappear" even though that's complete bullshit. Hell, he only heard about the disappearance in the first place because of the whites talking about it. It's always weird when SJWs with blatant fetishes for African/African-American/Native-American culture and fetishes for black rapists try to act like they think there must be something wrong with any white guy who likes Asians or includes them in his work in any significant way. They'll shoehorn blacks into King Arthur because of their fetish for replacing whites and taking part in the great replacement, then they'll blabber lies about the importance and necessity of divershitty when it benefits them, then they'll insist some white guy's a pervert for putting asians (especially cute asian girls) in his shit.

The left have cuck fetishes, the left rapes kids with the aid of islamists they import and protect and enable, the left have black fetishes, and because weebs aren't africa fetishists like the left, they hate weebs. The Japanese know body pillows of hot anime babes sell better than SJW Marvel capeshit. A weeb with a katana's technically still exercising, making him fitter than a feminist.

It's like Asians are only "Diverse" to the left and therefore deserving of special privileges when they can't compete in any asian country or an affirmative-action antiwhite country like America and due to their failure and entitlement, feel like they have to become professional narcissistic "Activists" in the war on whites to get ahead. Fucking weird. Then again, that one black politician got attacked by a white leftist woman in a gorilla mask and that wasn't called a hate crime because leftists only give privileges to actively anti-white and passively anti-white enemy combatants.

The only meaningful choice the player can make in the version of the game players got their hands on is to end the game, but Stanley Parable(Nonlinearity is a false idol, for a game to offer you freedom it has to anticipate your choices and falls apart if you do anything legitimately or seemingly unexpected like pulling the plug, the storyteller needs the listener, morality plays like the baby fire game suck ass, artsy games that get too far up their own ass forget to be good games, nonlinear games will inherently have linear paths even if there are a lot of them) Undertale(don't get me started, but Undertale seems to insist the best way to experience media is to use your free time and game-fucking superpowers like resetting to experience it fully in the best way possible and appreciate the developer's product as intended because you'll only learn Frisk's name if you act like Frisk and be the nicest guy possible like he would even if it means dying many times trying to Pacifist the game, because being a "get through enough of the game, fuck the story just kill enemies, then move on to the next without experiencing the best and depeest parts" kind of guy makes you Chara) beat YIIK to that punch long ago.

YIIK isn't really clever or deep, but it could have been really clever if it started off like a shit game and then challenged the player to stop treating it like a video game and start breaking it. The wimpy whiny twat hero starts saying "I have no idea why I did that, why did it work?" and "I guessed the password correctly, haha lucky" and "What the FUCK is going on why did the final villain just drop dead" as he stops being the protagonist of his doomed-to-failure story while the player takes his hero role and earns it. Using knowledge gained via save scumming, editing an easily-accessed fake save file, killing an invincible boss by deleting fake character files DDLC style, the player character chooses to give this doomed tale a happy ending.

I hope this is the right place for this sort of advice...

I designed a fighting game character with a lot of abilities and when playtesting him in my head I discovered using certain moves in a certain way means the game never ends.
The timer never runs out. Nobody loses health. The round never ends unless you unplug the PC and forfeit. Even if you pressed a button that made your character pull out a gun and blow his own brains out it wouldn't help. My guy's technique is absolute. He spends meter to prolong a match and has moves that give him too much meter.
The "Funbro" strategy that made Smogon think of the Endless Battle Clause ain't got shit on this.

I have three ways I can fix this... hyper-infinite?
A normal infinite combo in fighting games combos the foe to death. This combos the game to undeath potentially forever. A bot could do this forever as long as no power outages happen.
Either I limit how many times he can use a certain awesome and incredibly unique move that took way too fucking long to get right to just once per round, maybe even once per match
or I remove his meter-building move entirely
or I program his Stalling move and all other supers and EX specials to work on separate meters, so you can't stall the game out by building meter while stalling then spending meter to stall more.
Some of these options are easier than others. I guess it comes down to how much effort I want to put into this but every second spent on this is a second taken away from my main indie game.

By the way, stalling is just one of my move's many amazing uses. But because it's so good for comebacks, maybe it should be a "once per round" thing you always have access to until it is used. After all if it costs 3 bars of meter who the hell would ever fire BIG FUCKIN LASER when this genius play is always on the table? Then again if you could use it multiple times in a match would that harm its hype factor? This is the kind of move that, if used in a real fighting game tournament, would make the whole crowd scream and cheer and jump for joy and lose their goddamn minds in a hype overload. It's so fucking cool. Maybe it should be overused? This one move has limitless implications on balance and combos and more. It turns every option in my hand into a good one. even the option to do fuck all. I can literally press the button and do fuck all and still end up in a better position. I don't just take the advantage or take advantage of the advantage state, I take advantage of the code to take the opponent's life bar away, take the opponent's will to live away, even take the opponent's win away. Name any strong character in fighting game history. You can name a character with broken overpowered moves that take the opponent's health and meter and lives away. But... You can't name a character who can do that. Nobody can violate the game itself like this. I didn't stop time. I fucked time.

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.

Purely cosmetic, honestly. But, if you're seeking to get hired someplace that has a business uniform, it's good to get things dry-cleaned and hung. You could use the handles above your car doors as hangers too, if you can't afford the storage unit, but if you've got a decent wage job then you're looking at an annual cost-of-living in the mid- to high-quadruple digits. Which is, fucking incredible for a fulltime worker to save up tens of thousands of dollars a year.

Did something similar for about two years. It's fairly doable, and I'm happy with having done it.

Got really paranoid, though, and didn't really have a good place to relax or feel safe. Will people notice me hanging around here every day? Arriving half an hour later would be less suspicious. My entire schedule started looking like that, and when I saw something at my usual spot I'd turn tail and be extra stressed for a day or more.

OP here. I've found that talking to security and local police politely and explaining your situation gets them to let up if you're in a smaller or more southern town. In Kernersville I'd still get a knock most nights but they understand and more often than not they arrive because a witness called out of concern for your safety, not for the neighborhood's. In all honesty, I found that buying a huge bundle of fabric from Michael's not only blocks out onlookers but also provides some shade in the mornings.

It's all about not caring what people say or think of you. If it helps, clean up the car, get scratches and dents cleaned up, and get it repainted or styled so it's clear you're not some crazed gangster, pedo, or sussy alphabet agency type. Something that can easily identify you, maybe even put onlookers in a good mood before they meet you. I'm considering getting a new car after I've saved up $10k and painting each of the mane six's silhouettes on it, with their elements inside them. Maybe in other words, something /mlpol/ would like.

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.

shit...

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.

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.

To be fair standing for what you believe is good advice. It's the how it's gone about, as a legal stand point that is a perfectly legal fine answer for illegal laws.
The side that wants a better future for good people despite the world being The Serpant's (according to The Bible, which is also subservient under God).
Passively accepting mass murder by turning around and laying down sounds like a terrible plan.
Granted if everyone was on the same page that wouldn't occur in the first place due to nobody committing to actions against the All Mighty Lord.
And granted they are technically easily intimidated.
But they also go into hiding as easily as they lie.
Further more doing the spiritual working through the physical for the spiritual is fine as a plan as that what the idealized Christianity is about.

Doing as Jesus has done, yet also the old testament and pic related has worked along side the soft all pervasive part for a time.

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.

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.

First off, I want to say thank you /ub/ for all the encouragement you gave me in my last post. I'd link that shit but I'm a newfag. It was Sixth Sense. I've gotten better I'm only fapping once every 3 days instead of twice every day. I feel like a new man! So thanks guys!

But on the more pressing matters, I had a small fling with this chubby girl nothing serious I've never had sex with her anything. I like her but I like her as a friend. Nothing more. I've been wanting to work up the courage to try and find an actual girlfriend for myself, the very least make a new friend. When I was at the store, there was this girl I was smoking a cigarette and she recognized me from high school. She told me that when she first moved down here I had talked with her kind of helped her open up and get to know people and she thanked me for it. I was kind of embarrassed and caught on the spot and general autism kicked in cuz I couldn't remember her and I'm not good with talking with people especially girls. The more I thought about it, I'd like to get to know her. I don't know if she has a boyfriend girlfriend or whatever the fuck people have nowadays. I just know I kind of have a crush on the girl and wanted to know if any of you could you know help me again?

I can say that, today most of women aren't worth relationships. Ones who would stick without cause of true love I would say don't exist, but it is just that they are very rare.
So if you don't know how to play dating game just focus on your self improvement to get at least 2 of 3 sixes: six figure salary and six pack. Also remember your are the prize! If you work good on yourself and won't be totally socially retarded you will get girls. Possibly with girls approaching you and fighting for you.

To get more socially intelegant, be confident in yourself and don't be afraid to go to events, best is if you can go with friends
Don't be afraid also to observe how other people interact. So observe and learn, plius don't be afraid if you fail to make friends or get girls when going out that night try to think back and analyse if you made mistakes. Be those mistakes how you looked (clothing, figure); maybe your hygiene was bad (unleaned teeth, bad breath, general smell); maybe your approaching was bad.

And from /pol/ history. Remember nothing is beyond reach if you put enough effort and thought to it. Just keep working and don't give up

Perfectionism is a form of masturbation in which narcissistic faggots paralyze themselves with their fear of making mistakes and looking foolish, and then scare themselves into doing nothing besides saying "At least I'm not fucking up right now".
But they are fucking up. They're failing to reach their true potential, if they have any.

Sometimes I produce low-effort art for fun, not for therapy, so it wouldn't be right to say that's the only reason I make low-effort art in addition to high-effort art. Sometimes bad jokes don't need high quality art.

The harsh reality is something to not be scared of, as opposed to the sloth of a lazy life where death is a primary fear and effort is forgotten or disregarded entirely in feeble mindedness.
Telling someone upfront what their faults are is ego breaking and so is either accepted as criticism or an intimidation, not everyone is perfect but they can aspire to be better than to wallow in their own despair and pity. Surely you should understand the reasoning behind such directly worded merits, otherwise assuming you might not be so good at words, you may have misinterpreted my purposes and intentions.
>This is not friendship,Juden.
Then what is it nigger?
Adversarial rivalry? Harsh critique? Denouncing allies?

>He is retard.

>>4419
>But, I apprrciate his perspective.
Thanks.
>He's not wrong, nor was he any harsher on myself than Ive been.
More often than most times, oneself can be the own worst enemy possible.
>Its important to be brutally honest with yourself, ESPECIALLY when you fuck up.
To live by denial of failure is to exist within the entrapment of egotistical self delusions, mistakes will be made but they can be corrected given enough time.
>I know we're all on about ponies and shit, but sometimes you gotta be brutal;
Practicality supersedes emotional morality. Death is a part of life, after all, we're all on our way there so we might as well make the most the most out of it whilst we're here instead of making matters worse for ourselves and others.
Ponies are something truly magical, indeed they are uniquely special.
>its not deviant to do so and I wouldnt tell him or anyone ITT (specifically) to kill themselves.
I personally agree with your statement, anon.

misc how does it thing.png
I'm doing a labour job, so I'm getting some exercise.

I would like a way to exercise things so I can build muscle to help with lifting and carrying awkwardly shaped heavy things.

I also want to exercise my back and arm muscles evenly. With work, I do lifting and holding, with tons of bending down. I can do a few push-ups at home, too.

I have no idea how to get something like pull-ups done. I don't have a pull-up bar, but I'd like to know if there's some sort of home exercise that can work out the pulling muscles here. It's the one main type of exercise I don't know how to do without equipment.
