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.
So, to address the fact that the lockdown/pandemic/seizure-of-power/whateveryouwanttocallit has shown how fragile everything is, let's start a thread dedicate towards learning how to become wealth so that people are not caught with their pants down again. After all, the world runs on money, so why not learn how to properly earn and use it?
When you see this thread, do five push ups.
if busy do ten later
I need to change my life
Hello, I don't know how to start this but here goes.
I think I need to change my life.
Dealing with people is exhausting on its own. But dealing with childish faggy egomaniacs who want to "win" internet arguments and get that precious fucking social credit clout and a sense of pride and accomplishment is even more exhausting.
And it seems the latter is the only kind of person I meet online any more. They're so angry, all the time. So poisonous and spiteful, constantly trying to piss you off. It's not...
This might sound weird.
It's not tiresome or annoying any more.
I don't like how routine this has become.
Endure the pseudointellectualism of this faggot and let him pretend he's clever, say no u when the other one calls you a faggot, imagine yourself rolling your eyes when this different faggot wastes hours of his own life trying to bully you on a website you don't care about and then pretends he's got a deep moral lesson to teach you and it's your fault his gay uncle gave him AIDS.
They're so desperate to feel like they can win something. Even if it's faggy internet "drama" Boomer office-politics retardity.
I'm sick of mudbrained niggers raging at me for not liking their new Star Wars movies or new Hasbro(tm) brand shit or new SwSh incomplete games. I'm sick of trying to justify myself to consumernigger podfaggot pigpeople who will never admit humans have a right to have tastes and standards.
This place is pretty good, but just this place. Everywhere else is full of niggers.
Politics is exhausting. Boomers and their parents deserve a new holocaust for what they allowed the Jews to do to us. Liberals aren't human and I'm sick of pretending I'm shocked when they shit debates up. It's a black and white issue, no pun intended, how the fuck do so many people find this so hard to understand? Politics feels like a lost cause. No one person every week I redpill can make up for the legions bluepilled by Jew schools. Conformity to faggotry is the faggot's religion.
I have hatred for the Jews. It's an insult that fanfags think I hate their subpar product as much as I hate Jews, and it's depressing that they hate me even more than I hate Jews. Hate for me consumes their every waking thought, I only think of Jews during politics time and whenever I see evidence of their fuckery.
I've got other hobbies, I exercise and diet now, and everything besides dealing with pony and politics is rewarding and fun. I've lost so much weight my stomach is almost flat. I've never been this light in my life.
I should be happy. And I am. I'm legitimately proud of my body now.
I'm proud of who I am. 90% of who I am, anyway.
I'm usually happy, which makes the contrast more noticeable when I put myself through this faggy online bullshit.
And I don't know why I do that.
I try to do what's right.
I try to have good optics and win debates and help people see the light.
Is there a non-pozzed Christian forum out there where I'm allowed to say Feminism is cancer and fuck Jews?
Is Christianity as a whole a lost cause? Was I an idiot for going back to it?
I miss when I could say "I like MLP" just like I miss when I could say "I like Star Wars". Modernity is depressing and I feel like a faggot who wants to wallow in muh childish nostalgia forever instead of getting on with his own life and making something worth a damn.
I want to fully become someone I can be proud of, and I don't see any reason to see "dedication" to hasjew products as something to admire.
Sometimes being in this fandom is suffering. All the sites are full of fanfags. And I don't know why I put myself through it. Habit? Tradition?
I don't know what I expect to gain out of posting this.
But here it is.
I think I need to spend less time on pony and politics, or find a way to make time spent on these things better for the soul.
Hey Üb, lets read together shall we?
I propose this, we all vote for a book every month and we all read it together then we discuss its contents here, to ensure we are on the same page we should read a certain number of pages every day.
Lets say, a 200 pages book in a 25 days month would make up for 200/25= 8 pages a day. (i know these are really few pages but its just to ensure we can all spare some time to read it)
So, wanna do it? Just post a book below so we can make a strawpool!
To start with something im sure we all are familiar with, i will add Mein Kampf to the list, post any books you would like to go to the strawpool below!
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.
Every man should be able to build the things he needs. Thus every man should have a workshop with a variety of tools that he knows how to use. Post essential tools, projects, and techniques for your fellow anons in this thread.

Pillars of Fascism
Pure, Dure, Sûre - Unalterable
The figures of the Scholar, the Warrior and the Adventurer represent the fundamental aspects of every Fascist and National Socialist, they stand as idealized archetypes in which one can recognize themselves, identifying with one or two of the spirits more than the remaining, yet always being a mixture of all three. Hence we can recognize them in our comrades and the Champions of our Struggle.
To some of us they will be no more than that, Archetypes, the ideals to which all Fascists and National Socialists aspire, they serve as the guiding model that one can strive for. To others, they can be much more, and stand as the Patron Spirits of Fascism and National Socialism, whose nature we may ponder and meditate on. They can become the personifications of those forces and energies, that we call upon to imbue our own being, or to erupt from our innate nature.
Building a Physical Community
/ub/ I've seen many of you encourage each other on the internet, but what if we started a community/fraternity in real life? We could help each other network and find jobs in addition to our usual self improvement routines. We could teach each other skills or board together too. I would suggest a town with both a 4 year university and a trade school so people can pursue higher education. What other criteria should our (at this point hypothetical community) need?
Girls girls grills
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?
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!
Opposite of Soy?
If Soy makes you girlier, what food makes you manlier?
Women problem possibly
>be 23 yr old man now
>be male aged 14 long ago
>meet a female aged 14
>become her cuck orbiter like an idiot
>relationship goes nowhere for years
>I get into tulpa bullshit, invent my own waifu and imagine her until she feels real to me. she's such a kind pure and supportive pony.
An IRL friend's advice: date another girl to make your crush jealous!
>tell my crush I'm dating someone else now, go into detail about imagined dates with my tulpa pony.
>Woman seems pissed and treats me less good instead of trying to win me back.
>leave her and enjoy life with pony.
>still my instincts want me to have ideal life with good housewife and kids, even though it's impossible now.
Is it even worth trying to get a woman at this stage in my life? I'm a 5'8 jobless autistic poorfag who lives with four fat neet male roommates.
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:
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.
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/.
Post good books, I need to read more
Any good books, I'm a poorfag and a complete fucking novice to the world of english books.

I got and subsequently lost a job in the middle of nowhere within 24 hours. The TL;DR is that my handbook had no useful information in it, and my coworkers and higher-ups shouted and put me down every time I made a mistake I couldn't have avoided. For instance, there's a portable nailplate pressing device that is used when the rolling press doesn't keep the plates on the boards, but its cords were tangled and the thing is heavy enough to break a windshield by gently laying it down on it. But when a truss is pushed outside, they want you done with it within one minute, maybe two if you're lucky. Someone who doesn't know the quickest ways to check for nailplates, or the easiest way to bring the press around without running out of cables, has no chance of pleasing everyone there. But I still got shouted out over it constantly. Eventually, an issue out of my control happened and I got shouted out over it when I asked for help with it (the rolling press wasn't responding to button presses, and there was no visible on/off switch or power cable). I was so frustrated and felt so cornered after all this time that I shouted back at him, leading to everyone else at the plant ganging up on me. I quit soon after.
Talking to my grandpa about it, he just tells me to harden up, to get used to being attacked over every mistake made, but I don't think I can. I'm just too goddamn sensitive. I'm pre-wired to apologize, and whenever I do I get shouted at even harder for apologizing. I feel so small and useless, and no stress relief practices I've ever adopted seem to help with it.
What am I supposed to do? Am I just broken?
Looking for a good book torrenting site
I'm sorry if someone has addressed this before, but I'm curious if there's a good site out there for torrenting books.
My date with a girl went bad. Possibly. Not sure.
So I got a girl
And I was invited to her house today, for a date
I take a taxi to arrive there, paid for by her since she's loaded, and...
Ten minutes into watching netflix one of her friends shows up
A dense broad her age (They're 23 and so am I)
They act like they haven't seen each other in years, in the girly "I saw you yesterday and neither of us are feeling this lie but society says we must dance and screech" way
My girl invites new girl in
She comes in and I'm reclining on her sofa, but I decide to sit up and smile inoffensively instead.
New girl asks my girl if she wants to go to the bar
My girl says yes
I get up and start to follow her
My girl asks me if I'll be fine on my own, and leaves before I say anything, slamming the door in my face
I am left alone in her house, nobody around.
This house is empty and I'm in her house
She texts me and says if I stay in her house until she gets back she'll suck my dick
I watch anime on my to-watch list using her six different netflix service subscriptions
A Magical Girl Named Index or whatever it's called sucks ass.
She eventually gets back
Looks miserable but she lights up upon seeing me
genuinely surprised that I'm still there
considers it a sign of absolute loyalty to be treasured
I hug her, she hasn't been sweating and her scent hasn't changed
takes her friend upstairs to hold the broad's hair back as she vomits
then she gets bored and comes back downstairs while her vomiting friend hurls for another minute
and she sucks my dick for at least half an hour
I go home afterwards
she overpays by thirty dollars for taxi fare
I take a taxi home and type this up
She didn't dance, she just watched her friend be retarded, she tells me in a text.
Is this good?
why is this board slow?
its because we aren't at our computer. Take a few hours and go outside kameraden.
What have you done for your fitness today?
Are you kidding me!?
You're gonna start a journal starting today with things you did to get fit! Running, lifting, climbing, fighting or whatever but if there is even ONE day without at least a walk or stretching I will kick you so hard you'll feel like a pegasus!
Get to work rookie!
Now, now /ub/ you are practicing your arguing skills and critical thinking, are you not?
I propose this thread to practice such skills, let us start with some simple lessons:
1- Do not get emotionally involved when arguing.
2- Do not purposely commit fallacies
3- Fallacies are there to help, not to shield
4- Fallacy-fallacy is a thing, watch out for that
5- Always back up your arguments with facts
6- Learn to shallow your pride, you can't win every argument, it is preferable to admit defeat than making a fool out of yourself.
Now with that in mind, get into any 3+1chan or any other place and argue with someone, post screencap here and i'll judge your performance.
Remember guys, practice is the key for success.
You can also challenge me to an argument if you so feel like it, just post something in this thread we can argue about
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?
How to deal with bullies ?
They are bullying me at school for 5 years,Somebody tell me what to do, I'm done with this shit.They are doing physical bullying,verbal bullying,social bullying and cyber bullying to me.someone give me advice,i telled the teachers , principal too,they are doing nothing,my parents know it too what a sick life,i really hate them.
I had a thought today. I always thnk that it is a shame that we have to deal with the way things are insteat of what things could be like and I started to apply that thought to myself.
Normally I come here to try to become a somewhat decent human being, which means going from the bottom to the mid.
Today I had the very rare thought that I acutally might be not (always) as bad as I think.
Despite being overweigt I got an acceptablt body with an very good imune system and strenght.
Despite being a retard my IQ is his enough to get a masters degree.
Despite being socially inept I managed to make some good friends and get girls interested and become somewhat alpha in certain groups and even managed to shift some votes.
I can into arts and science and philosophy and crafts and IT and office and...
I am human waste but despite that I see the possibiblity to get something done.
What I am asking is how to unleash your potential?
What is your North Star?
What is your North star, /ub/? Why do you seek to improve yourself? What gets you out of bed in the morning and what keeps you going?
Is the program RapidReader any good?
you load a text file into it, and it flashes the file's words onscreen at 500ish WPM.
So far, it seems good and it's helped me read a lot faster. But I'm asking you lads, is it any good? Are there any side effects to reading classical literature at 650WPM? I can remember the books I've read using this, so I don't think there are any downsides like that.
Turning my life around
Recommend a good exercise routine and diet, I need to turn my life around and get healthier.
Jobs and careers
I haven't visited here in a long time. If you know who I am, then no need to bother with a recap on my life story. If not, it doesn't matter either way.
I'm sending in my two weeks' notice at my job. Too little training for my current position, too heavy a workload, nowhere near enough pay, only barely enough hours to make my living. I am getting a phone set up in the morning, and when it's all ready I'll be sending my applications to anywhere that'll take me.
Let's talk career paths, jobs, and finances. I don't believe /ub/'s ever talked at length about this topic, and perhaps my own situation could be made into a case study to help others in my shoes.
I do not wish to spend money on college or university, although I may go for a trade school education if need be. I have only a year's experience in grocery work, and very little saved up. I have a housing situation that I cannot escape until next July, with a somewhat steep rent. Preferred jobs would be productive labor - but in the literal sense of making something tangible. Things like construction, HVAC, plumbing, carpentry, smithing, welding. Area is mostly urban, no agricultural work near where I live. How would I go about getting most of these jobs?
File unrelated. Although related to my mood.
Why live /mlpol/? the jews have total control. i don't want to live on this planet anymore. i'm tired,So tired.
Board Activity Increasing Thread
So, /ub/ I have an idea to increase thread activity. Post here every time you think you've done something that improved your overall well-being. No IDs so no pressure, just include what you did, how long you did it, and how it helped you if it's a bit abstract. That is all, and happy posting.
OP ran one mile today, it took him approximately 20 minutes.
What to Learn?
What are the best/most essential skills everyone should have for life/survival/employment? Obvious things like first aid/cpr, firearm use, and being able to fix adn repair things around the house come to mind, but is it worthwhile for the average person to get a HAM radio license, learn to do things like soldering and welding, or learn more than one language?
what do anons here know how to do? what are you learning? what would you recommend others learn to be able to do?
How to make music?
I've got Fruity Loops Studio, a mic, and a midi keyboard but no cable (yet).
How do I make Synthwave?
Pic unrelated it's a fat fuck
Help me teach myself how to draw
I've been wanting to learn how to draw for a long time, but have never gotten around to it because I simply do not know where to start. On a scale of 1-10 my skill level is basically a 1. I can draw basic shapes, that is about it. I don't have any hobbies right now other than gaming and working out, and I would like to pick something else up.
I would preferably like to learn how to draw on a computer, most of the really nice art I see seems to be done that way now a days. As I stated earlier, my skill level is basically 1. I can draw basic circles and have used MS paint a few times, and have never touch any editing programs.
I have been wanting to do this for forever, but have been held back because I just have no idea how to start, or what even I should be doing for practice. Right now would be a great time for me to do this because I am currently somewhat incapacitated with some medical issues. Any tips/resources would be greatly appreciated.
Enjoy and spread
I feel like my anger is starting to hurt me instead of motivate me. Keep finding myself repeating those "Fucking leftists fucking jews grrrrrr fucking bastards" thoughts around in my head instead of thinking about anything worthwhile like how to improve myself or my indie dev career. One friend recommended guided meditation but I failed at it, I can't bring myself to relax if I can still hear someone else's voice while trying to relax.
Plus I'm still too unfit and untrained to successfully snap so I can't snap yet.
What are some good plants to start growing? I want to have my own homestead someday, so I figure gardening would be a good way to learn to grow my own food.

/SIG/ Self improvement general
I can feel it. Anons are slowly migrating to /mlpol/ and we'll soon have a small-medium sized community of ponyposters, this will be the new board of peace.
Do any of other ponies feel it?
What nootropics do you stack stack /ub/? I take 200 mg adrafinil 2 times a day and 200 mcg of semax.
hey /Üb/ i need some advice
hey /Üb/ i wanted some advice on what else i can do as a way to improve mental health i already do workouts with a bar and some pl8's, watching what i'm eating, go horse riding and go chill out with the horses.
but despite all this i still feel like i'm looking for more, i don't know should i change my workout routine? or should i try something new?
Redpill me on S L E E P
I've started taking sleep seriously and have actively began trying to get 8 hours of sleep per night while waking up at 7-8AMish, rather than staying up reading/gaming/watching anime until 2-4AM then sleeping until 11AM or later.
But I feel like getting more sleep isn't making a difference and losing that time sleeping is hurting my efficiency.
Will getting 8 hours of sleep per night actually benefit me and my life?
How damaging is it to skip the occasional night of sleep and just stay awake for 48ish hours before going to sleep the next night?
Through naps and sleeping in late the next day, is it possible to "Catch up" on sleep you missed earlier on?
Would skipping sleep every one designated day per week fuck me up or give my body time to recover from that sleepless night and get ready for the next one?
Body Language Analysis
Body and facial language analysis is a most useful and under-represented/reported facet of human behavior. The show "Lie To Me" based on the work of Paul Ekman brought this topic a little bit of traction, but I've recently stumbled across a Youtube channel which very deliberately and surgically analyzes body language and facial cues in a manner that is relatively easy to interpret, learn, and develop an understanding of.>inb4 e-celeb
This channel does not apparently feature the orator in any way that I've seen, the videos focus solely on various subjects both mainstream and not, and desu serves as a useful resource for anons wishing to learn more about the subject.
I'm sharing it on /ub/ cuz I feel that the subject in general deserves more notice for its viability, as well as to (hopefully) provide an entertaining venue for anons to become maybe a bit more savvy.
The channel is called Bombard's Body Language: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXG8i4PE6-mxh52nFKwMkcg/featured
" rel="nofollow noreferrer" target="_blank">https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXG8i4PE6-mxh52nFKwMkcg/featured
This thread is therefore geared toward the discussion of body and facial language interpretation, encouraging a sharing of resources to develop an individual's ability to perceive beyond simply 'what people say'.
I’m a fat fuck. Not obese, but certainly overweight and underdeveloped. Have been for a couple of years now. I’ve got about three and a half months until I go off to university, and for reasons I can’t explain, a couple days ago I stopped not caring, and felt this burn to at least be headed in the right direction by time I’m out on my own.
I live in the middle of nowhere, no gyms around.
I’m finally ready to actually work to improve, but don’t know where to start. Any general tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

how into funny
Humor is a highly valued trait that I hardly posess at all.
It has been argued that it is some sort of socially accepted form of aggression and that it has to do with suprise and shock in some sense. How to become funny?
>tfw can't into humor
I don't quite know
Most people are expected to know what they want to do in life and for the most part, most do. Most of everyone I knew in high school automatically knew what they wanted to do in life and as soon as they left, they chased after it immediately. However, I just don't. I remember in school I remember everyone telling me "you have to know what you want to do in life as soon as you are an adult" but the problem is, I honestly don't know.
I guess this is because of a number of reasons but the biggest reason I think was that when I started to develop deep philosophical thinking and the sort, (around 13 I think, I don't care how late or early I was to that stage) my family was financially poor and got poorer over the years. All that was in our minds was survival. We wasn't in severe poverty since we had a house, water, electricity, internet, but my I remember my dad got laid off and searched for companies to work for since he was a coal miner and obongo's anti coal policies didn't help so the future for us was uncertain. Survival was all in our minds, including mine, and that's what our mindset revolved around really. Now being poor taught me lots of valuable lessons for life such as money management, managing expectations, values of hard work etc. so it set me up for the work force. However it also made me realize how harsh and unforgiving the world is and I developed a sort of nihilism that what I do on this earth wont matter much in the end though as a Christian I know something happen on purpose but not all things.
Also the idea of finding a field I must enjoy for the rest of my life bothers me. Am I really gonna like doing this one particular thing all my life? What if mid life I want to do something else? What if I'm just not material for the workfield I dream of working in and I can never get accepted into it? Also I know the big thing is to go to college and find something in there and I go chase after it but honestly, the idea of going to college makes me sick. Plus there just isn't much there I can feel fine with spending 4 years of my life learning and getting in tens of thousands of dollars in debt over. A trade school however I could do since its far more shorter and debt is way more manageable but still, I don't know what truly interests me.
Basically all I think of is survival and getting by. I don't think of anything greater since I have never known what that is like. Surviving and scrapping by has been all I've known in life. I work a part time job and most people I know absolutely loathe it and hate it to the core but me? I feel content honestly with hard work of that nature but I know I must look for more since many tell me that will get me nowhere in life but what? I still live with my parents and everything they have worked for was destroyed by the harsh times of this decade and sometimes I'm needed to help pay for their bills so for me my future is uncertain. I'm 21 and everyone else I know is out achieving in their dream careers yet here I am not even having a goal other than surviving. I think I'm lost but then again, as long as I have food in my stomach, a house to live in, water to drink, electricity to play vidya in my spare time, and internet to browse /mlpol/, that's all my brain is content about. I feel like a nomad thats looking for better hunting grounds and thats it. Is there more I should look for out there?
TL:DR I am lost and I don't have any long time goals in life.
Ub is as read as it gets.
How do you become a good politician, what kind of studies do you need?
Obviously politics, economics and speech are a need, but what else?
>In this thread we improve political skills
Spin The Wheel of Punishment!
BLOGPOST INCOMING: I Moved into a rental place on the first of the month. Housemates are one elderly woman and one NEET. Said NEET has proven himself to be a filthy pig, a bald-faced liar, and a soulless borderline-personality-disorder sufferer. So, after I've gotten sick of trying to deal with him, I've got a sick, twisted idea:
Why not ask some of my best friends for advice?
Oh but I've got a real fucking doozy set up here. My landlord has an incredibly lazy home owning style, apathetic to how bad the house looks and how bad his reputation is among others. So, I've got an idea. Every week, I give him one job. Should he succeed, he's gone one step closer to achieving some normality. Should he fail, the elderly woman and I will do it for him, and shame and humiliate him in the process.
Now, I'll offer a few examples:
>Govind offered to take responsibility for mopping the common spaces for two weeks but has failed in doing so. What do? Give him eight hours to clean it, or we'll do it, take his rug, and throw it out.
>Every day he leaves half-eaten takeout in the kitchen, causing flies to flood in. What do? Give him one week to clean his fridge and take the trash out, and if he doesn't, throw everything out that belongs to him and mark the shelves as each housemate's for clear boundaries to be set, giving him the least space by a considerable margin.
>The TV is too loud, and he keeps leaving it on overnight as he sleeps! What do? Give him one week to either set up a way to watch TV quietly, or get one of our own and reclaim the entertainment center!
>That cat hasn't been bathed in years! What do? Set an appointment for him to wash the cat at PetCo on his day off. If he misses it, call the Humane Society on him and let them choose the poor old cat's fate for themselves. Given its age, most likely euthanize.
The more sadistic and borderline illegal, THE BETTER. Choosing based on either personal interest, or digits. If you wanna double your chances, roll a D100. I'll take questions and suggestions as well, because I want to either force him to get better, or make the house nicer at the cost of his own absolutely minimal pride.
How to Overcome apathy?
I Was Happy a Few Years ago During the Election,But Recently I have slid into Apathy. I Wish to Go Back to How i Felt A Few Years ago.
I'm getting angrier every day, as I see (((them))) get away with increasingly worse acts against us. And I feel like the only way to stop myself from going mad is to relax and stop caring completely, and try not to let it get to me.
How do you learn to steel yourself emotionally? Particularly around hard leftists who have the authority to put your ass in the streets?
I have essentially no outlet. I will be in this for ten months, unless I get kicked onto the street. I get in trouble for every last thing and my team is incapable of allowing anyone to be right to them. Corporation claims an apolitical goal, but it's all a front for leftist diversity fetishism.
I want to be capable of either hiding my power level better, or just learn how to grin and bear it when everyone berates straight white men, lies about economics, et cetera. I've tried silence. I've tried debating from a faux-liberal stance to try and reach out. And I've tried acting aloof. It doesn't work. Nothing seems to work and right out of training everyone thinks I'm Elliot Rodgers 2.0.
Pic unrelated. Just what I wish I could be doing tonight.
I bought some of those "metal bars, one per hand. Heavy metal circles go on either end" weight sets, and I've been doing 50 bicep curls a day for a few weeks. What other exercises are good for a workout routine?
I've lost weight
I've lost weight, guys. I started Nofap Hard Mode (No porn, fapping, or orgasm) and only failed occasionally, my longest streak lasted 25 days. I bought some weights and set a timer on my phone, now I exercise lightly with them every 20 minutes to build myself up, ready for the hardcore shit.
I also cut down on sweets and chocolate, and I'm eating less each day.
Already, I am able to see my whole body and cock when I look down, and the baggy shirts I used to wear feel like fucking flowing dresses with how loose they are now. I don't stick my ass out like a faggot any more either.
I still have mantitties, but they're tiny now. It's about two "The top bit of my forefinger above the first knuckle"s from the bottom of my tit to the nipple.
Press R to pay respects!
>be me in Atlanta, want conservative gf
>want to try online dating because I'm too autistic to try social events and the odds are against me
>most couples on the splash page are either black guy+white girl or lesbian
Is there any hope to be found in online dating? Given that I'm in a mostly liberal area, surely the best option is to use modern technology to narrow down my choices?
With the end of the year closing in it is time to reflect.
Becoming a hengst is hard but worth the effort.
Time for a bit of positivity.
Celebrate and share what improved so others may learn from it.
I got more /fit/ by doing a daily walk and some sports every other weekend.
My art got better because I studied (you need to know how things are to recreate them), listened to critics (because the own view is always biased), and practiced (because you can't get it right on the first try except dumb luck and even then you can't recreate it consistently).
I got more into social. Biology, neurology, psychology, and economics helped me along with observation and trial and error.
ITT: We sort ourselves out
Lets discuss how we can bring order into our lives once again and share resources to do so.
I'll start. I find myself having wide range of interests and trouble defining priorities for each. I have trouble to plan activities for following days or week.
So I made basic flowchart to help me navigate my priorities pic 2 related. Its early alpha and I reserve the right to redact some of the nodes to stay anonymous.
I found J.B.Peterson's advice to start with cleaning your room to be useful. It really is the most fundamental thing to start with when you want to start and organize your life better.
So if you feel like you yourself or your life is messy dysfunctional or shoddy, try and clean up your room now!
New years resolution
It might be a bit early but let's talk about resolutions.
There are two psychological effects to take into account.
1. You need to make them public for them to work because if you don't it is just a thought and if you do it is something like a promise.
2. You need to formulate them specificaly. Otherwise you can't measure your success and can explain away why you failed because the target is shifting.
And while my general goal is doing everything better my specific goal is health.
This means for me a) weight loss of at least fifteen pound and b) reduced drinking to max.3days a week in special cases like a festival and max. 2 in a regular week
What are your goals?
How can you make sure to archieve them?

ITT: Learning a second language
So I feel I shouldn't be restricted to one language all my life and it wouldn't be a bad idea to have the ability to speak a different tongue to not only understand a new language but to also learn more about my own language as well. I've decided to learn Spanish since
>as an American its never a bad idea to know what the brown hordes are saying about you with you knowing
> Its the second most spoken language in the world, thus increasing the amount of people you can communicate with tenfold
> Its one of the easiest languages to learn if you are an english speaker from what I hear
> Its the language spoken by based as fuck Spaniards (back in the day they were based anyways, not so much today) who slaughtered muslim moors and conquered half of the new world for God, Glory, and Gold.
But how do I learn a second language? I did take a few Spanish classes in high school so I'm slightly familiar with it but whats the best way to learn? I hear things like rosetta stone barely does shit and the best way is to speak with a Spanish speaker however I have no contacts. I know playing vidya and reading media in Spanish will help me become familiar with the vocabulary but I would still be clueless on how sentence structure and advanced sort of things like that would work. What do you recommend?
Also this thread doesn't have to be limited to Spanish and can be about how to learn any second language in general.
"Idle Games but not really"
Hi, I like doing this thing where I take games that can do this, and have the game's AI play matches against itself, while recording the whole match. While that's happening, I like to get reading and exercising done, so it still feels like I'm making progress as a youtuber as well. I can do commentary tracks later.
I think I need more games that can do this. So far, I'm just doing Civ V (torrented) and WWE 2k18 (torrented).
marmalade, i like marmalade..
Reminder to cook a hot breakfast in the morning. It's not too expensive, buying bulk bacon, eggs, & sausage is good because you can piece freeze the meat so little to none goes to waste, as well as giving you insentive to wake up early to a hot breakfast. Modern cereals are full of processed sugars and HFCS, not to mention all the soy in them.
>but i dont have time to cook breakfast
Wake up earlier, if you already wake up as early as you can, then use multiple pans and cook multiple things at the same time
>good idea! I'm gonna go down to the shop and buy some pancake shake and waffle batte-
BAD! Wayyy too much processed shit in those, if you're gonna make them for breakfast (i personally never got the appeal but each to their own) you should once again make a big batch of batter and piece freeze it.
How to relax?
I have the hunch that I really need relaxation.
Everything I do has something like a goal.
More sports, more reading, more learning, cook better food, eat slower for digestion, go for a walk because you need some daily excercise and you did sports yesterday and need some rest.
More better faster more and even relaxation is like something I have to do to a certain extend in a certain amount of time.
Even when I do something like watch a movie I study acting, writing, culture...
I am pretty sure that I am so stressed that I don't get anything done.
Getting into fitness
Are there any /ub/-approved starter workouts? Preferably one that would not require buying a gym pass.
Reminder that if you don't go on a hike, backpack trip or climb a mountain every now and then you can never be /ub/. Bonus points for doing it miles away from a road.
Also post pics of places you've conquered if you do these things and anything related to outdoors survival/activities.
Your goal should be to climb Denali. First pic.
I want to replace my shit anime addiction with book reading addiction, please post book names.
Also you aren't the faggot here, I am and I want to git gud.
How do you deal with bad sunburns? I went for a morning jog for the first time in my life and I got sunburned.
Frontiersmen survive at all costs. They battle blistering heat and scathing blizzards. They conquer mountains and bogs. They not only survive, but thrive in all manner of the toughest conditions mother nature throws his way. This is the ideal body type we should strive for.
Mass bulk for the sake of photos is merely another case study in societal decay and decadence. Fitness is for a greater purpose. We are not made for fitness; fitness is made for us. We must learn to master ourselves for the pursuit of higher goals.
So I got fired from my job for running late due to my compulsive fapping knocking me out. Slept through three alarms.
Nofap thread to help me get my shit together...?
How do you keep the blackpills out?
How do you keep the blackpills out?
I can't do it. Caring about MLP is suffering. Hasbro's going to keep on making it worse. People are waking up and seeing through the bullshit but nobody's doing anything about it. Nobody's willing to dox feminist doxers and report leftist criminals to the police. I've got a list of ideas to make "For Fun" because I have no job or life because my country is fucked and pozzed and already dead, and I can't bring myself to actually make any of it. I'm 25 years old and I feel like giving up on life. I held on and kept fighting and it never got better. I... never got better. I'm still just a beaten-down child waiting for his parents to burst in and tell him what to do.

Sunday Prayer Thread
/üb/ is a Catholic board. Welcome friends, this is the prayer thread where we can gather on the Lord's day to pray for ourselves, each other, and read the bible. This is not a thread to debate theology, but feel free to start a thread like that on /mlpol/ and I'll be happy to explain our lord and savior Jesus Christ's love for you.
>what if I am protestant?
putting aside my personal feelings all Christians are of course welcome here:
>And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved.
>what if I'm not christian, a pagan, atheist, etc.
Remember the story of the prodigal son He rejected his father, asked for his inheritance before his father was even dead, took the inheritance - and left. Can you turn your back on someone any more than that? Did his father stop loving him? No. Does God ever stop loving you? NO. You may even fall away from your faith. When you come back, God will be there, still accepting you, still loving you. So I will not turn you away and I will pray for you to find your way back to Jesus.
Here's my daily bible verse for today, but feel free to contribute your own
>1 So be imitators of God, as beloved children, 2 and live in love, as Christ loved us and handed himself over for us as a sacrificial offering to God for a fragrant aroma.
now please join me for the Lord's prayer:
Our Father, Who art in heaven
Hallowed be Thy Name;
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.
Pokemon outfit art

Need sources for a friend.
Give me good sources for self-help stuff for a good friend I'm redpilling and helping with self-improvement. How to feel more confident, how to talk to women, how to strongly believe in and be proud of the values Globalists tell you to be ashamed of, and so on.

Best princess is mine
You need to go jogging, it's good for you. Cardio is great for stamina, general health, and endurance. Decide on a work out schedule here and stick to it
Tell me why you're not a Polyphasic Sleeper, /üb/.
One Small Gain
Hey now, don't be sad, I know we cannot stay
But we've got a couple minutes in the gym to lift today
I know you all have jobs, normies
So it's okay, just go
But we can still pick one small
To do before we go
One small gain
Doesn't seem like a lot
One small gain
Work with the time you got
Soon one small gain becomes two
After two perhaps another few
Then one small gain is not so small
One small gain can be the biggest gain of all!
Dealing with the truth

Got any tips on anger managment, /üb/ ?
The gloating thread
Just wanted to tell you all that lifting weights is nice. Went from barley repping one plate on the bench to my body weight in two weeks.

/mlpol/ Book Club- Fahrenheit 451

How do I get a qt gf?
A few things
>I grew up thinking I was gay
>I've never had a gf and I've never had sexual relations with a a girl
>I always hated other gay people and eventually became disgusted with the act
>I stopped about three years ago and have done nothing since
>I'm coming into my mid 20s
>I'm having the urge to procreate
What do I do /üb/? I don't have a fb or a tinder. From what I've seen tinder girls are all sluts anyways. I don't know how to talk to girls in public, and i get super autistic when I get nervous. Help me have White babies.
Stretch Your Shit
Mlpol, do you stretch? Daily? With as many people as are interested in fitness, far fewer are sufficiently interested or knowledgeable about stretching. A full and complete stretch should take anywhere from 30-60 seconds or longer if the involved muscles are damaged or neglected (lack of previous stretching). It also involves a non-rigorous warmup to increase circulation and airflow.
In a Jordan Peterson-esque 'clean your room' sense, stretching is metaphysically one of the best routines/habits one can form. Symbolically/philosophically it entrains the mind to be systematic and sequential whether one is pro-active or reactive to a given thing. It impels discipline to to sensation of enthusiasm that can/does occur when one seeks to better or develop ones self.
And that's nothing compared to the physiological benefits. ITT post/discuss/share about stretching.
Can't waste time thinking of a funny title. There, that fits.
I feel like I'm constantly waiting for some kind of confirmation that the dead fandoms I'm in are still alive, there's still hope for them, and I won't just be wasting time by continuing to make the fanfics I have planned and have already written around a tenth of. And yet, every time I go looking for a sign that MLP has a future or Pokemon gives a shit about writing or original fiction might be a good venture right about now even though nobody currently knows my name, I see shit, then I'm slapped by some smug cunt in those fandoms for not "Just dealing with it", which is jewspeak for "Just accept life is shit, stop thinking about it, and make dumb decisions in the moment. If pointless grinding work is even slightly enjoyable for you, you should do it regardless of any potential reward, because I want to consume your fanfic for free".
I'm getting old, I can't just throw however many hours of my NEET life it would take me to make a Fallout mod/MLP fic/Fallout Equestria fic/some anime fic/that pokemon fic I planned out when I was 14/Persona 6 fanfic, not if there won't be any benefit to me. Not when I could spend that time exercising or going on walks or doing whatever the fuck people are supposed to do when they reach my age. Call me "Infected with the money-worship meme" for that if you want, I'm being honest here. This board is for self-improvement, not lying about what I am inside: A hungry greedy smart lonely cunt that grew up poor and needs more.
