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.

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.

Mental Health, the whitepill, and hope
This is a thread for us to find hope and give hope but also provide tips on how to relieve ourselves of all the pain we suffer.

My entire life, so far, has been nothing but pain pain pain. This is not an embellishment and I'm on my last rope here. I can't take it anymore.

People like us are always demonized by the media. Many of us hide who we are, our opinions, among the normals around us, which can make us alienated and make it harder for us to engage with them.

If one, like me, fails in their ambitions and can't keep their room clean, has very few friends and isn't in a relationship nor have lost their virginity, then that compounds on one's self-esteem.

We need to talk about our mental health. How to create an enviroment in our lives that facilitates good mental health. Like, I follow Jp's advice on the clean your room thing right now, even though he seems like controlled op from what I can remember, he is right about that making sure that's fixed is good for you. I feel that it's draining to constantly feel ashamed about such a thing, like I do. I can usually start cleaning but I rarely finish all the way, which causes the feeling of a dirty room not to go away. That's why I decied to finish this time.

But other then tips on how to improve one's mental health that might apply to everyone in society since everyone is suffering by insanity of this world. I also want us to look for more specific ways to deal with the prospect of white genocide or rather a future where whites are minorities in their own countries. I want us to find positives and use them to move forward and handle negatives in a constructive manner.

None of us is here because you don't seek a solution to solve this problem. If you legitimately thought there was nothing to do about this situation, then wouldn't you stop engaging in things that tries to stop it? What's the point of suffering here for no purpose? I believe we all gather here because we want to fight this situation, even if in our minds we think it's hopeless, because for some reason we have resolved ourself to do it. Why? I assume that one some level we have some hope for something. But maybe, I don't know what I'm talking about.

Anyway, the positives. I want us to find the whitepills and look on the bright side of life, to stride forward. There are so many regrets in my mind and they burn me up inside. I don't know how to deal with the past more than trying to put it behind me or saying that, "Now things will be different." However, it has never become different after that point. Point is, it's stressful to dwell on the past and since you can't change any of it the best one can do is to learn from it and probably forgive oneself for it and be proud of the good things one did and remember the good times. This comes from the person that is imprisoned by their past and can't move, btw.

Sorry, for the blogposting and while I'm not suicidal, I can't help but to feel more tired than ever before (I also feel that I can use myself as an example for the importance of the thread or something). If there's a limit to how many times I can pick myself up and then get knocked down, then I'm feeling like I'm close to converging with that right now. I don't know how long I can continue to take this anymore. I kinda need to change now.

I didn't really know which board this thread belongs to. It's like a improvement thread for /ub/ but at the same time it's a whitepill thread. Mods, feel free to move it wherever you think it fits best.

I'll return to post here when my room is cleaned to say that I done it if I don't fall asleep first, then I post it tomorrow. Maybe I'll even update on my daily progress on things in the future. Maybe that's a good plan. We'll see.

I had to pick a picture so I picked this one for Op but to be honest, don't feel that humorous about my any of this right now. I guess, I don't wanna just crack jokes about it, unless that is helpful in someway, and actually figure out how to solve it.

Narcissism Thread
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.

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!

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?

Wisdoms
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.

==Stop Maturbating==
Masturbation is degenerate. It's highly addictive, frequently develops into a compulsion, and causes dysfunction amongst those who practice it.
ITT we discuss what the effects of masturbation are, from a physiological, mental, and shall we say metaphysical standpoint.
Spoiler alert, it's not good nor pretty. However, while we're busy going on about how abortion is conclusively reprehensible, it is also important to be honest with ourselves about the nature of behaviors which we perpetuate.
Im not advocating for immediate and unyielding puritanism, but that doesnt mean we can't make progress, and Imo that progress begins with an honest conversation.
So grab your meat and lets break down why you shouldn't.

For the record, Im doing this OP from memory, and Ill be refuting supporting the thesis in subsequent posts with citations.
I posit and maintain the following:
Abortion is immoral and inconscionable, at the female level of reproduction.
Masturbation is immoral and inconscionable, at the male level of reproduction.

I am NOT equating masturbation to abortion, they are quite apart in terms of severity. However, I posit and maintain that from the operant perspective of the male, it is consequentially comparable.
The Masculine responsibility in reproduction is obvious, to inseminate the female.
The Feminine responsibility in reproduction is to receive and 'process' the semen, through her very complicated systems.
Abortion is the abdication of the Female responsibility, of processing the child to term.
Masturbation then, is the abdication of the Masculine responsibility to inseminate the female.

>men produce millions of sperm
Irrelevant. Sperm have a specific purpose; deprived of that purpose causes degradation of the individual. Sperm die for a variety of reasons. Inside the man, if not ejaculated they will die quite naturally and be reabsorbed and made into new sperm cells. Obviously, thats not what happens when one jizzes in whatever their cleanup method of choice is. At the risk of sounding cheeky, it would be like sending a military squad to an uninhabited island with no resources and telling them to stay until they had performed their essential function.
Same goes for fuccbois who bang lots of whores, condom/pull-out game or not.
Obviously, there are no immediate obstacles to masturbating or being a whore of whichever sex, other than what is socially imposed; one is entitled to do what they will.
My hope is with a bit of exposition, perhaps (you) will consider taking - and leaving - the dick out of your hand.
It's NOT easy, but it does get easier over time, and more than anything the thought of not masturbating was far worse than the act.
This isnt about NoFap or any trends or challenges or wtfe else, this is about becoming a more formidable person gradually, day by day.

Mares in Manufacturing Matter
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.

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

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

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

Soap
There are a few things I'd like to do in this thread
- document my soap making process
- document process changes and upgrades to equipment
- detail common problems when making soap
- answer any soap making questions
- eventually let everyone know when and where product can be purchased
Basically everything to do with soap.

I'm not concerned about telling somebody how to make a product that I'm selling either. There are a few reasons for this: Some people won't be able to receive such a product overseas, or it wouldn't be feasible to ship. I'm not so petty to think that trying to conceal information somehow results in "job security". The soap making process is already quite well documented. Finally, I didn't start making soap to make money with, I started because of the memes, but also to have a product to better prepare myself for economic collapse.
I wish to share this with you guys so (you) too can better prepare yourself for whatever is coming.

Lets start with the boring stuff, like what is soap?
I would define soap as a surfactant. A surfactant is a molecule that will bind to water, oil, and particles.
The US legal definition is 'soap made from natural ingredients'. Synthetic soap is often sold as 'beauty bars' or 'body wash' instead of soap, because they are not made with natural ingredients.

Most modern engine and transmission oils, and heavy grease used for equipment will contain detergents. Don't let the word detergent mislead you, it means the same thing as surfacant.

Lye harvested for soap making in ages past is called potash. The potash lye soap making process is a fair bit more involved, and the chemical reactions are a bit different. https://classicbells.com/soap/woodAshLye.asp
Potash soap has been made for a very, very long time. If one of you decides to try this out, please let us know how it goes!

"modern" naturally made soap uses either potassium hydroxide or sodium hydroxide for the lye. Sodium hydroxide is used for making liquid soaps, sodium hydroxide for solid soap bars.
The easiest way to get sodium hydroxide is from a hardware store selling containers of "pure lye" drain unclogger in the plumbing section. For example https://www.homedepot.com/p/Instant-Power-Crystal-Lye-Drain-Cleaner-1650/204374017

Soap made from natural ingredients is a very sloppy chemical reaction. There are untold numbers of different chemicals and compounds found naturally in any given type of oil. Most of those oils will react with the lye to make some rather complex reactions that result in "soap". It is not uncommon for the soap to change color as it cures for this reason.

Oils are typically mixed and matched to make a nice bar of soap, as no single oil has a good mix of the fatty acids necessary for a good bar of soap.

When making your first batch of soap:
Start with solid bars of soap, instead of trying to make liquid soap. Liquid soap is much pickier about what kind of oils you use.
Use an existing recipe for your first batch, then try to make soap using as much local products as possible. When economic collapse happens, getting those foreign oils will be much more difficult or impossible.
Start with a 2:1 water:lye ratio. If your recipe calls for 12 ounces of lye, use 24 ounces of distilled water. Ignore however much water the recipe calls for.

When building your own recipe, or modifying an existing one, use the following two web pages:
http://soapcalc.net/calc/SoapCalcWP.asp
https://classicbells.com/soap/soapCalcNumbers.asp
And when in doubt, ask in here.

This first post is just a boring autistic dump on chunks of important or related information. I'll post a lot more (actual making) soap stuff when I get the chance. I think this is a pretty good start though.

Be sure to ask whatever in here about anything related. Over the last year I've been pretty autistically going over how most people make soap, refining my own process, and doing fairly deep-diving research on the topic and general chemistry.

Slugfest, Rebutals and Mares oh my
For improving wit, knowledge and wisdom.
Here's Fi a thread for long debates, observations, hores puse.
Recommended, core point/idea/intent in the title/subject of the post. Would also recommend keeping your position about the topic and a unique number/pseudo trust based id in the name or subject field for the purpose of one debate/rebutal topic.
Rules
1. Pony Pony and Frienchipping is a must.
2. Positions here have to be backed up using a form of evidence. Higher quality and numerous the better, but in that order.
3. Cite stuff. Meme images that actually have it is good. Links to archives also good. Quotes pic or otherwise also good. Source My Ass, stated otherwise.
4. If it has a dedicated (containment) thread it belongs there in accordance to pretty pony pussy and political pinball wizards.
5. Shitposting allowed. Levity and brevity is a must for the heavy lifting and raking here.
6. The only winner is everyone by increasing in skill, knowledge, wisdom, wit and experience.
7. Taackle the position as it is or/and strengthen it then commit your might. This ensures ideas and well intentions are ensured.
8. What about isms, shilling, THE FUCKING (((flat))) JACKWAGON. Is considered shitposting at best off topic at worst and belongs elsewhere (again in the containment threads or not here at all). Because there is no point, and when one is made there is no substance, even one on their behalf, even with good will to help them our good will has been 'placed before swine'.
9. When hypotheticals are in play, considering and contrasting with reality is also allowed. Following through the logical presuppositions that then turns the idea is also allowed given the logic is sound, is true in reality (or the hypothetical reality).
10. Hard feelings stay here. If they develop or are brought in keep them in this thread. Keep a calm mind, focused intent, and wide vantage point of understanding, even under intense pressure. This is for fun and improvement or one's self and others through consensual typed/image debates.
11. Post Pony and or Humorous every once in a while.
12. If the topic/debate has enough interests lets make it another thread. Thread generation and cross posing is allowed.
13. To Err is human. It happens. At times ponies too make errors.
14. Love your fellow Anon, and forgive. No homo. Keeping high interpersonal anonymous bonds is needed.
15. Reasoning and how an Anon comes to (a) deduction(s) is encouraged. This is also a place to sharpen the faculties and how you reach somewhere and also the potential ways is important for plasticity. (Source My Ass)
16. Dunno probably something here. Horse Pussy.
17. Greentexting and subsequent Meme making of the topics and debates is allowed and encouraged. Remember Anonymity, and ensure the spirit thrives.
18. Not sure why I typed eighteen at this point might as well have twenty for the nice multiple of ten.
19. Clarify when a post seems off topic, ask for clarity so everyone is on the same page.
20. Only wish the best for fellow Anons. A seemingly repeat, and the importance is why it's repeated.
>Why not just make a separate thread in the first place?
This thread doesn't have IDs for rapidly shitposting accurate true solutions that improve can be had.
>There isn't a person that would actually debate for the opposition position.
Debating as an advocate for fun and improvement is allowed.
>Something something edge cases.
I know it's bound to happen. I feel it in my bones.

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

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

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

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

/nomad/?
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.

Night Gear Advice Thread
Hey there, seeing as it's Halloween I decided it's an appropriately spooky time to talk about gear in the dark. After all, if you can't see then you're all but helpless to those who can. Feel free to discuss flashlights, NVGs, and all sorts of other night equipment.

<flashlight
I don't have a good EDC flashlight so I decided to look for one that would fit in my pocket. My considerations were size/weight, durability, battery life, high/low brightness, and features like strobe/SOS/red light. Let's go over these.

>size/weight
The most important to me, since the 2 oz. light you bring with you is better than the 10 oz. light you left in your car. EDC is about carrying it comfortably with you everywhere, after all.
>durability
You don't want your light to go out if you get drenched or drop it.
>battery life
If you get lost in the woods, would you have enough light to make it through the night if needed?
>high/low brightness
High brightness is good for seeing things in the distance and for searching, while a low brightness will conserve your batteries longer. "Firefly" mode in some lights won't screw up your eyes' adjustment to the dark. Maximum lumens/battery length depends on the batteries you use.
>features
A strobe is rapid flashing on the highest setting, which will blind and disorientate an attacker long enough for you to do something. An SOS setting will flash the signal in case you forget it or can't manually operate it. A red light can't be seen from far away and won't spook animals, but you can get that with a cheap filter too.

My decision was to order the Nitecore MT10c (https://flashlight.nitecore.com/product/mt10c) which is only 2 ounces, very bright for that size, and has those features. The downside is you need lithium-ion batteries and a charger, but even with those it's much less than $100 which some competitors go for. As a backup, I also got the Statgear Pocket keychain light. Of course, neither have arrived yet so I can't make any judgements yet. What are your own experiences and considerations?

<Night Vision Goggles
This is a much harder topic owing to the technical complexity and the higher price point, and I need to ask for advice on this one. Basically, there are three generations of technology which get better but are more expensive, with the U.S. military using Gen 3. I have no idea if "Gen 4" is a marketing scam like some sites have said but I'd like your input.

My concern is getting a set of night-vision goggles that are on par with or surpass mil-spec, so if I'm confronted by terrorists with that sort of gear I'm not at a disadvantage either in a building or in the countryside. I've heard from S2 Underground that civilian models can actually be better but I don't know what models he's going off. Price point is not really a concern for me, though obviously something like the GPNVG (pic related) is ridiculously too much.

I consider NVGs to be necessary and something that can save your life, but the cost and numerous models make any decision difficult. If you have input, or know a guy that knows a guy, that would be appreciated.

Advice for Helping a Rape Victim
A few weeks ago a friend of mine was using a Dicksword app which would connect you with a random person from a random server, not unlike Omegle minus video chat. He got in contact with a girl who immediately seemed a bit peculiar. She was clearly depressed, had suicidal thoughts and was engaged in self-harm, even though she's only 15. Unlike typical teenage girls this had a basis behind it.
After a bit of prodding she opened up and told my friend that she had recently been raped this July by her then-boyfriend (similar age). He is still out and about, and this put her on a serious downward spiral since she had only just started to recover after having been raped two years earlier when she was 13, by her friend's father. Later, it was learned she had been molested even earlier at age 12 by her older brother. The only justice that has come from this is prosecution against her friend's father which is still ongoing and is having a psychological toll on her. Her brother still lives down the street and she has not pressed charges against her last rapist.
You would think that with how messed up this is she lives in a Latin American country like El Salvador or Los Angeles. No, she's white and lives in a >90% white small midwest city. To make matters worse, she is harangued by her parents for her failing grades as she's obviously incapable of committing to her schoolwork, and she has not received therapy. Her "friends" pretend to offer sympathy but have given no real support. The boys at her school also are more open about taking passes at her, which they feel less guilty about since she's already damaged goods. Basically she's cursed with this repeated trauma and nobody gives a damn.
She often has suicidal thoughts or contemplates murdering her brother who started this life of sorrow. She also engages in self-harm and last month cut open her thigh. However, she has since improved somewhat as my friend has provided moral support, advice and encouragement. Make no mistake though, it's an unhealthy emotional dependence on him since she's not getting help anywhere else. Neither him nor my friend are anywhere close to her town so she's still essentially on her own.

What are some things we can do, or what advice can we offer, that can possibly help or get her to seek help in the right channels? This would be a case that's difficult for a professional therapist, but my friend has done an admirable job in providing what little help he can.

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

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

World Beard Day
All things beard. Also world beard day next month.
https://worldbeardday.com/
https://www.beardwiki.com/index

>World Beard Day is celebrated annually on an international level with people from every nation and continent gathering together with their beards. It is held on the first Saturday of September and is characterized by the happiness of all people being with their beards and with each other.

>The exact origins of World Beard Day are unknown, but there is some evidence to suggest that Danish Vikings had a special day dedicated to the glorification of beards as far back as 800 AD. The event was not held on a fixed date, and was often celebrated hundreds of times each year. This early incarnation of what would one day become World Beard Day typically involved the ransacking of neighboring towns, villages and countries by large groups of heavily-armed bearded men.

Any mlpol plans for this event?

Tree Planting
Does anyone have any advice for someone considering doing tree planting as a summer job?

To help get more /fit/, and to avoid spending 3-4 hours on a bus every day commuting, I was thinking of doing some tree planting work this summer. Has anyone done this kind of work here before? Do you have anything to tell me that I could use? Some bits of information you wish you knew before you started tree planting?

As far as I understand it, I'll be basically living in a camp with food and beds provided, working five or six days a week. I expect that any clothing I bring will end up permanently ruined with all the dirt that'll be embedded in it, so that's not a big issue. What I'm really unsure of is what kind of equipment to bring. Specifically, what kinds of clothing I should bring for being out working in all weather for a few months at a time.

I'd also like to know more about what kind of fitness I should be aiming towards. I'm trying to work on doing squats and push-ups, with a couple of daily jogs to help build up endurance. I'm sure the work is going to be heavy and brutal, but doing some pre-training should help take some of the edge off of that adjustment period.

The place I'm looking at applying to has women in all their promotional photos. Normally, that would be a sign that they're in full diversity mode, so straight cis white men need not apply, but in this case my interpretation is that the work is easy enough for even women to do it.

I think I might need to get new shoes, since my old hiking shoes have a hold in the leather. They're fine otherwise, but they'd leak. Similarly, I wear glasses, so an extra pair, and making sure that they're a kind that stays on my face very well despite leaning forward a lot, would be good.

I also have an insulated vest and zipper-sweater that I don't mind sacrificing for the sake of warmth.

I've done wearhouse work with plenty of heavy lifting before, map-making field courses that lasted for 2 weeks, have been acclimated to 14-hour days where I got up at 5:30 (but only for academic work rather than physical work), and I know that I'm the kind of person who reflexively helps the group load or unload equipment when needed.

Part of me says that I'm pretty well prepared, but another part of me sees this kind of work as something that's far enough away from what I'm familiar with that I don't know what to expect or how well I'll be able to weather it. I don't want to go there prepared for every kind of weather except for one type, and then only have that weather happen to me all day. I also don't want to run into a mistake like ruining my glasses and not being able to have a second pair that I can use.

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/.

Most if not everyone here, are no stranger to losing things and people. Older family members are somewhat easy in a sense, as their age makes their passing something of a given.

It's generally bad practice to wear one's heart on their sleeve all the time, but especially wrt those who are special, neglect to express your feelings for them at your peril and always (if possible) tell bid them a sincere and heartfelt goodbye.

2020 has been something else, and 2021 isnt likely to let up anytime soon what with all the known/unknown unfinished business. As such, I want to tell everyone on the site and even the site its self how important you and it are to me for and in incalculable ways.

I dont want to wake up one day and find that some (((agency or group))) has destroyed the site cuz/through reasons and have not said this: I love you all. The detractors especially, cuz I like to kill things

I wouldnt be here if not for it. literally, I had already purchased the gun before 4/1/17. I wont belabor that point unnecessarily, I just wanted to emphasize how in earnest I am when I say to you all:

Thank you for coming into my life. It means the world to me to have met you in whatever capacity. All my closest friends are here, and since it's the holidays this is where I want to be, with you all. This IS my family. I cant raise a glass beer with you, so allow me to raise it to you now.

Thank you. Goodbye for now, may we meet again someday. Whether our paths diverge or not, I want the best for you now and always.

Mlpol Story Time
Greetings horsefuckers. I have been long putting off reading Mein Kampf in its entirety, and I will no longer abide that. However, mere reading will not do. When one reads, they engage a certain set of brain areas to activate. When one reads aloud, they engage three different brain-area sets to activate. One is reading the words, one is speaking the words, and one is hearing themselves speak the words; three independent areas of the brain, cross-referencing and association simultaneously. This is mnemonics 101.

So then, I am going to be making an audiobook out of Mein Kampf, specifically the late former president Henry Ford's personal translation of Adolf Hitler's work, and making it available to the board. Cuz you guys are the best.

Presented are the Forward, Dedication, and Volume 1 Chapter 1. I will be updating this thread weekdays with new chapters. Please enjoy ^_^

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.

Nobody wants to hear "those bastards are counting motorcycle accident deaths as covid deaths to inflate figures because of money" when everyone's too busy saying "waaaah poor me I can't go to the bar" or "Waaah poor me my obese granny got sick 5 months ago and it took her a week to recover, it's so scary and we've been scared all day because the TV said old people never recover and we're afraid she'll get sick again". Even people I thought I'd been redpilling on blacks and jews over months. Suddenly "we all need the NHS because muh virus and we need the vaccine because muh virus and we need to pwotect owh enn-eych-ess fwom da waycist covidiots who wanna charge old ladies and blacky-wacky pocky-wockies money for medical services". I fucking hate it. Even the bitch I'd been dating has gone woke and decided to stop seeing me/listening to me/reading my texts, so I blocked her. I feel like I'm an entire species apart from these apathetic soulless brainwashed supposedly-white niggers. Nobody wants to believe in the far-fetched and seemingly-delusional old myth that things were ever NOT this way. But where else could I go? Name one American place that would willingly oppose niggers, communists, Trump the jewish puppet, and the jewish fed. Name one country on the planet that says no to diversity, leftists, jews, marxism, and rapefugees. Name a site that isn't cucked beside this one, and an organization with the numbers and power needed to stop the jews. It all feels so fucking hopeless and I don't know what to do. I know I won't kill myself, because that wouldn't save anyone. But I don't know how I can save anyone.

Chap in a Rough Spot
I was doing the rounds on Derpibooru and I came across on the "Vent Thread" (which is usually man-children complaining about man-child things) and I actually found something serious. Kongou has been dealt a bad hand in life with a crazy (likely single) mother, no employment prospects now or in the foreseeable future, and crippling food allergies that are life-threatening. Social services wants to put him in a shared living space which is intolerable due to said allergies. He's stuck at home with an overbearing mother who stifled his prospects and is likely to cancel his health insurance were he to try to escape. Due to these grim prospects he has threatened to become an hero.

I am posting this on his behalf here because he looks to be /ourguy/ judging from his profile. I believe that a private charity or religious organization is the best means for him to escape and find help but I don't know what options there are in Wisconsin. What are some ways to help?

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.

Hardening Up
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?

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.
"Hi"
"Hi"
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?

Arguing
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

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.

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?

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.

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

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 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.
