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.

Enjoy!

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.

>Is it possible to bruise your elbows by exercising too hard?
Yes, when you are training hard with heavy weights there can be a point where your body will require rest, if your arms are still hurting then you should just let them heal for a while.
>I think I did that and can't extend my arms fully.
There is a certain amount of strain for all bones and if you have been working hard on those joints then maybe you could have hurt them.

Arms are recovering nicely.
About a week or two ago I really fucked one of my feet up.
Came down too hard on it when running, bruising the heel. Also got infected skin and the muscles/nerves in my foot practically fucking dissolved from the swelling. Couldn't wiggle or separate my toes or pull them closer together or bend my foot towards my legs. Was stuck in bed for many days. I remember turning up 5 hour music mixes and trying to drift away from the pain. Painkillers didn't take it all away. I thought I would never walk again. Every so often I would feel this weird twitching sensation along a line inside my foot as though I was a puppet and that puppet-string necessary for foot movement was reconnecting itself.
But I got better. I did physical therapy myself, stretching and exercising my foot. Learned to walk with crutches and one foot fast. Walked on both feet with crutches, and eventually stopped needing crutches.
Now the foot only hurts when I walk on it for the first time every day or after a long rest, but the pain goes away after about a minute of walking. Will that eventually go away?

>Arms are recovering nicely.
Alright then, hope you take it easy while you recover.
>About a week or two ago I really fucked one of my feet up.
At least you didn't lose it or break it.
>Came down too hard on it when running, bruising the heel.
Bruises heal, eventually, it's the pain that you can't run away from.
>Also got infected skin and the muscles/nerves in my foot practically fucking dissolved from the swelling.
At first when you get an injury it hurts like a bitch but over time it gets better.
>Couldn't wiggle or separate my toes or pull them closer together or bend my foot towards my legs.
Once you can do circles with your foot without it hurting then it will be fine but for the moment keep yourself out of danger while you let your wounds heal accordingly to your body's recovering rate, you will know when you are alright to start beginning new projects at the correct timing.
>Was stuck in bed for many days.
It gets boring sometimes when stuck in between 4 walls.
>I remember turning up 5 hour music mixes and trying to drift away from the pain.
Distractions can help you forget about the pain but it's easier to just accept and work around it, don't let it bother you too much given it's only temporary.
>Painkillers didn't take it all away.
Strong pain reducing drugs can't get rid of the struggles you have to face later or in the moment, there are some things that cannot be avoided and you must look back on this experience while taking some form of wisdom away from it, the future promises to brighter if you can see the light at the end of road while ignoring the darkness surrounding you, you fucked your foot up and walked away from it with a mark to remind you of your errors.
>I thought I would never walk again.
You were overreacting a bit too much but your worries shall soon come to an end, you have endurance to withstand it for now and pain is a part of life as torture is temporary and all the 9 circles of hell you have to endure are there for you to be tested to your limits.
>Every so often I would feel this weird twitching sensation along a line inside my foot as though I was a puppet and that puppet-string necessary for foot movement was reconnecting itself.
Well that must be your nerves or the other bones in the heel, the biology and anatomy of our bodies is weirdly complex.
>But I got better.
The rain will clear soon and sun will shine down on you, all you have to do is be patient.
>I did physical therapy myself, stretching and exercising my foot. Learned to walk with crutches and one foot fast. Walked on both feet with crutches, and eventually stopped needing crutches.
This must be new to you to have to be bed bound in chains, it broke down your views and you must learn to get past this situation for yourself.
>Now the foot only hurts when I walk on it for the first time every day or after a long rest, but the pain goes away after about a minute of walking. Will that eventually go away?
Yes, it will, ride the pain train till you can't no longer, withstand the storm over your head and you will see freedom some point soon, everyone is subject to some form of injury that slows them down until they get back to their feet, get back up from where you have fallen and face your fears with your head high till death do you part, stand up and be strong in the face of fate.

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!

Now, if you havent tried cedar plank grilling, I highly recommend it; it's like having a smoker except on easy mode. Gives food a kice smokey flavor. Just,... make sure it doesnt catch fire.

But anyway! The experiment was a complete success. The brats were prepared as usual up until cooling. Then were stuffed with a combination of fine grated gouda, finely diced blue cheese crumble, and extra sharp white cheddar. The salmon and asparagus bacon wraps were not an experiment, as I was trying to duplicate a previous result.
Bacon wrap worked (dont hesitate to use toothpics) on the brats, cedar plank worked on the brats, I'm rating this a 100% success! Keep playing with your food!

Not gonna go off the rails, just offering a bit of advice. If a store is selling "pork tenderloin" and it's 2lbs or more, expect it to be two loins and plan for it.
Also, not thrilled by pork wellington, and exceedingly skeptical of beef wellington now

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.

Humans are exactly like magnets, whatever emotion you are putting out you will always bring it back in, act positive and good things will happen to you, act negative and bad things will happen, as above so below, karma exists but it exists within yourself so you cannot see it clearly without self exploration.
If you are being shit talked to do not escalate things faster than the pace it is currently going at, a fight can be prevented if you are in control of your emotions so master your spirit and you will become a true warrior, a good samurai doesn't let his emotions guide him but instead leads his own ego.
Magic exists and there is nothing you can do to get it out of your life, demons are attracted to negativity and fear thus they thrive from it, do not give them your emotions unless you want to give your life away, same can be said about evil people, they thrive from (You) and feed from (You) so do not give them any more than 3 chances, if they show themselves to be filled with hate and are deceiving then drop them immediately, do not pity he who cannot control himself for they are unpredictable and unwise.
It is possible to completely change your personality by focusing your thoughts, don't forget that if you want a change of heart only you can make the change, you are your own god so do not take this lightly because it is your own choice if you wish to be a devil or angel.
Most men do not understand themselves due to ignorance, explore yourself and break the boundary's you set for yourself by doing what you once deemed impossible for you to do, go out of the box and only then will you find true treasure, it is all waiting for you specifically before it can be unlocked, there is lots of ways to learn yourself through many methods of meditation, just spend a portion of your day to look at what path you are currently taking, don't walk blindly into something that does not suit yourself for it will only bring back badness from the choosing of a wrong decision, learn from your mistakes so that you can become better, don't forget your thoughts or what you have done in the past lest it repeat itself in the future.
Do not trust immediately, let time take it's course and wait for consecutive feedback to indicate if someone is trustworthy or not, if all signs are green to go then take that person and don't let them go if you are absolutely sure that they are for you.
Forget everything that everyone told you and learn yourself, do not let other people tell you who you should be and call you names along with other false titles, make sure that you are not to be messed with unless they want no mercy, if someone is to truly threaten you then use everything in your power to outdo them in their plans to disrupt yours.
Learn what you can because true knowledge is not taught openly, do research and base your own thoughts, feelings and judgement's from personal experience, do not let other people's bad experiences guide you away from potential good ones, do not let other people influence your own domain of thoughts and feelings.
Peace brings war and war brings peace, there is always periods of peace and wages of war, you cannot fully get away from the bad things in the world as they will always follow you and there is nothing you can do to stop it, so do not fear it but embrace it instead as it is a natural part of life along with death.
Do not worry about worry's as that leads into a mirror pit that constantly reflects negativity back and forth which will eventually lead to you climbing out of the pit or rotting in it, worry about your current tasks and do not be led astray from your present goal as if you are constantly being distracted then your chores will never be finished, complain all day and war will follow, be angry all day and death will follow, eat all day and famine will follow, sloth all day then pestilence will come and so on so forth.
Make sure you can distinguish between false and true, do not falsely follow comfortable lies as your life will never know truth if you choose the path of the blind, take your blindfolds off and gaze at the world from an outsider's perspective, you are only part of the program because you have been told that you are, your chains are only self imposed from the word of others and are easily breakable with the right key as long as you know which key it is.
Everything ties into one and the world is a big mirror constantly reflecting in a kaleidoscopic fashion that never fades, learn the fruits of our forests and harvest them, do not let hidden gold go to waste when things are waiting just for you to come collect them, food exists to be eaten, we exist to live and die as that is why we are here.
Star signs are accurate, did those astrologists over 2000 years ago know nothing of the stars when they spent their whole life's studying the stars? Everything has a meaning and learn each meaning if you wish to achieve greatness, the zodiac signs are already learned so that we may know them but no one looks to what isn't a lie anymore.
Act manly and make yourself a man, do not let feminine attitudes role you if you call yourself a man, so do not let weak emotions take you without your want, only a woman is raped by her own emotions, do not become a sissy faggot who only looks to his feelings for guidance who then is doomed to forever fail in all his goals.
Become a man by finding out what a man truly is, did Adam not bite the apple of sin? He did it as a sign of how man is forever tied to his own emotions, emotions create sin and unless you can control them you will forever be chained to desire, emotions are inherently feminine, they serve no meaning other than to please the primitive brain that we were given, break your ego and you will free yourself, break the mental chains withholding you from yourself and flourish like a fountain, only you can decide your own fate.
Will you be a pussy and let false feelings dominate you? Or will you take the reigns and guide yourself instead?

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.

>You handle your business in Japan the way other Japanese would, and you handle your business in America the way other Americans would
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.

Then you look around and snap back to reality as you stand above a knocked over monitor and broken shards of glass and plates. And you go to lay down and you stare at the ceiling.

If you could redo your whole life from day 1, but you couldn't cause any major changes to the world's timeline (So no preventing 9/11 or warning boomers how bad it'll get) but the choices you make in your new life can change your own timeline however you want (so you can learn new languages earlier/exercise more/watch less reality tv or watch different movies/etc) what would you change?

Hard Mode: The changes must be things child-you could realistically accomplish at that point in history.

Pic unrelated, a pic of Twilight casting a time spell would be too cliche

Read more, do more hands on projects, and get into math and science earlier in life.

This isn't really /ub/ related, but if any of you are still young you can learn from the mistakes us older fags made.

3D Printer?

What 3D printer would be great for a man in the UK to get himself? I swear I'll only use this to make useful stuff and stupid funny stuff and never misuse it. The world of 3d printing is so vast and creative that buying one seems like a good investment.

Pics unrelated.

Sweet. How do I get started and where do I begin? Should I make Twilight Sparkle first or something simpler like a D20 20 sided dice?

And as a beginner should you really be worried about making a twilight sparkle? Do you even have a 3d printer? First things forst.

I don't have a 3d printer yet because I'm a complete newbie who's still not sure which one to buy. I expected there to be a handful of 3d printers out there but turns out there are shitloads of 3d printers out there.

You can print a twilight. It isn't particularly difficult. There is a bit of a learning curve in the beginning. If you get an ender 3 or anet A8 you will need to look up videos on leveling the platform. For getting prints to adhere to the platform I advise using painter's tape and a glue stick. For your slicing software I advise using cura as it has premade settings for most common 3d printers and if you are going to make a twilight the you are going to want to use support structures. Get your printing skills down then go on to resin casting or injection molding. I would advise resin casting first simply because it is a much easier process and doesn't require any machinery. Resin casting simply requires a blank, silicone to make the mold, and resin.

Resolutions for 2020 and beyond

Happy New Year /ub/. We all know New Years' resolutions are a popular way that people try to effect positive changes in their life. This board is all about that, so tell me, what are your resolutions for 2020 and beyond? It is even the start of a new decade (depending on who you ask), so all the more reason to view today as the start of a new chapter in your life.

Here are mine:
>NoFap 2020
My best streak last year was 29 days and it was doing me a great good. At the very least I need to go 90 days this time around.
>Limit internet usage
I have blocked most time-wasting websites for most hours of the day. That includes 4chan, after all nothing useful happens there anymore.
>No background music when working at the computer
It's either distracting or I don't notice it's there, so why even bother? I can focus better in silence anyway.
>Read more
Despite taking the redpill I have yet to read any of the suggested literature to form an intellectual foundation. Three days a week, one hour a day, should be easy right?
>Go to church
I am not religious by nature but it seems like the best time to find a family-oriented young woman would be Sundays.

I think that to increase the odds of success you should make multiple resolutions and make effort on all of them. Hopefully at least one will stick. I was able to keep one resolution from 2019 (lifting) which has already improved my life significantly. So let's hear them, /ub/.

Mine are:

NOFAP
DIGITAL MINIMALISM
EXERCISE(i fucking WILL lose my beer gut and gain pecs, NO MORE CHEAT DAYS OR PIZZA OR ENERGY DRINKS OR SUGAR OF ANY KIND)
NO WOMEN, NO DATING, NO DISTRACTIONS
Get over myself and cut my losses when it comes to something I should have given up long ago
AUDIOBOOKS, MORE OF THEM!
BOOKS, MORE OF THEM!
Possibly find a non-cucked Christian forum where I can meet Christian friends since I need more of them and the only Church around here is cucked
Limit time spent playing video games and wasting time in general
Finish my FUCKING indie game.

OP checking in on myself because it's Feb 29 so fuck it why not.

>NoFap 2020
Failed this one but have three 14+ day streaks. Still aiming for a 90 day streak.
>Limit internet usage
Not too bad, will consider this successful so far. Though I still need to work on filling the time gained with other useful pursuits.
>No background music
Shit, my headphones are on right now. That's an F.
>Read more
Legitimately forgot about this one. No excuse there.
>Go to church
Okay so far. Doing it, it's not bad, not great either. Will continue for now.

Two out of five, as far as resolutions go, pretty decent. Going to try to continue the acutely failed resolutions, still good for self-improvement.

Might as well bump this for 2021 instead of making a new thread.
Resolutions are as follows:
>nofap year 2021 - gonna make it this year for sure
>work out every day - workout to be defined as either a strength circuit + short cardio, or just a long cardio session
>do not buy food from fast food restaurants or convenience stores - it's too easy to blow ridiculous amounts of money on junk food
>work on some non-pony writefag project in some capacity for at least one hour per day - it's time to stop daydreaming about stories and start fucking writing them down

how I did for 2020
>NOFAP
good progress, rarely if ever nutted more than once a month and never in november and never to anything degenerate
>DIGITAL MINIMALISM
good, stopped watching random youtube vids and checking notifications and browsing aimlessly, only used tech with a purpose in mind.
>EXERCISE(i fucking WILL lose my beer gut and gain pecs, NO MORE CHEAT DAYS OR PIZZA OR ENERGY DRINKS OR SUGAR OF ANY KIND)
at this point it's hard to believe I ever had a beer gut. no pecs yet but I have achieved toned stomach. Can tense the muscles and get punched in the gut without injury. I eat so healthily, fatties I know offer to buy me unhealthy shit whenever they feel jealous. feels good man.
>NO WOMEN, NO DATING, NO DISTRACTIONS
achieved, the only woman I talk to is a tulpa horse waifu and all others can go fuck themselves
>Get over myself and cut my losses when it comes to something I should have given up long ago
done. I should elaborate on that but it's a big hint to my IRL identity so I can't
>AUDIOBOOKS, MORE OF THEM!
achieved
>BOOKS, MORE OF THEM!
achieved
>Possibly find a non-cucked Christian forum where I can meet Christian friends since I need more of them and the only Church around here is cucked
it's like searching for hay in a needlestack except you don't get long to search in each needlestack before the Jews in charge realize you're more christian than they'd like. People I talked to in private messages would report me to jewerators! given up on that, if trad qt christian waifus and based christian bros still exist they don't use those big sites. X for this.
>Limit time spent playing video games and wasting time in general
done
>Finish my FUCKING indie game
lol I miss when I was new enough to indie development to think this could be done in under a year. If everything goes according to schedule it should be done by 2021's christmas or sooner but don't take that as an official promise, problems have a way of popping up out of nowhere so it could take longer.

2021 RESOLUTIONS:
>NO CUM NO SEX NO FAP NO BREASTS
no more sex or porn of any kind. Not even big tiddy fanservice animes. Nofap felt great but I need to see if those "Semen retention makes you ascend!"fags were right. If it gets any better than this, I can't fucking wait!
>daily exercise
I will improve my body. Time to get on the protein shakes and buy heavier weights.
>BE KINDER TO MYSELF AND OTHERS
Edgily thinking thoughts like "I am too weak! This is foolishness! If I cannot lift this much by this year I am nothing!" to myself won't help me. Must stay focused and and motivated to improve gradually and positive. I want to be like the sun; large and mighty and warm.
>finish one good book every week
my "to read" list is getting short but it's being done
>ALWAYS HEALTHY ALL THE TIME except on my birthday and christmas
I will never touch jew-manufactured poison again. Organic meat, veg, and other healthy shit like that only.
>GIT GUD AT ANIMATION AND ART
it's important
>MAKE THAT FUCKING GAME
IT IS WITHIN MY GRASP but don't ask me about it because I need to stop talking about how great stuff might be if it ever gets done and start getting that shit done so people can see for themselves how great it is.

How do you deal with the fear of missing out on what strange new soft drinks taste like, when trying to be healthy and cut those out of your life?

It's hard to believe that Howard wrote those stories for one and a half cents a word for magazines printed on the cheapest, roughest pulp paper, which used his stories as spacers between ads for magnetic hernia cure trusses, isn't it?

Howard died very young, too. He was only thirty years old when he blew his brains out in a fit of melancholy over the death of a relative.

Have you read Mein Kampf? There was a thread about reading it, where we read 10 pages a day, and someone picked out the important parts and commented on them. It was sad to see it die after 100 pages or so.
Anyway so file related is The Lightning and the Sun by Savitri Devi. It's an important book if you're interested in esoteric hitlerism, and the hindu view of Hitler.

Glad I found this thread, I was thinking of making one like it.

>>3225
I've been meaning to read that. If I'm not mistaken it's a meditation on honor?

I read Infinite Jest a few months ago, the first of the "meme trilogy" of 4/lit/, and I wasn't disappointed. It's generally seen as a refutation of postmodern irony. Just get ready for a long haul, it's around 1100 pages of what's mostly rambling, and lots of it isn't what it seems.

I've actually heard that too, now that you mention it. From InfoGalactic:
>When first published, Don Quixote was usually interpreted as a comic novel. After the French Revolution it was popular for its central ethic that individuals can be right while society is quite wrong and seen as disenchanting. In the 19th century it was seen as a social commentary, but no one could easily tell "whose side Cervantes was on". Many critics came to view the work as a tragedy in which Don Quixote's idealism and nobility are viewed by the post-chivalric world as insane, and are defeated and rendered useless by common reality.
All to add to the mystery of it, I guess. Definitely going on the backlog, with priority. There must be something to it if the amount of translations to come out of it are only superseded by the Good Book.
