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!

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).

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!

Yesterday I cooked a 2lb fresh-caught Rainbow Trout.
I coated the whole thing - inside and out - in butter, lemon, salt, pepper, and filled the cavity with onion and lemon slices. Cooked at 350 for 45 minutes.

It came out pretty good, but I'm only giving myself a 6/10. Rainbow Trout can have a rather strong "fishy" taste, and while the butter and lemon diminished it significantly, if I had it to do over again I would soak the fish in beer first, and then add lemon-pepper and dill weed to the seasoning coating/mix.

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.

Frankly you should know better than OKCupid or most mainstream dating sites. If you drink, just go to the bar to watch a football game. If you go to a restaurant, chat with whoever's willing about something you hear them talking about or showing interest in. You'll eventually meet a fellow channer or nerd of either sex; as rare as it is to show your power level at least a fair 5% of the population has visited the site and knows internet culture past Facebook; you'll find someone resting in that 5% eventually, and make friends with them.

You need to show confidence in yourself past just seeking dates. Seek social connections and gfs will practically pour onto you from those connections as you get to know the group. It's like an espionage, you need to gain others' trust and treat most women and men alike as friends before they'll even consider dating you. The friendzone does exist but it's not a permanent place to be as long as you're a confident person who doesn't let girls tie him around their fingers.

I remember getting a 17 minute mile in sixth grade, but I was 250+ pounds and so self conscious I never wanted to jog.

But if you're hiking in a mountainous region, that's alright. I live on a steep hill that goes for two-thirds or three-quarters of a mile, but due to its steepness I sometimes take 20-25 minutes to climb up the hill. So I can somewhat relate, if not fully.

I just did 25.

Earlier today during my thirty-minute lunch break at work I did 22, then 10, then 2, then 2, with roughly 5 seconds in between each round.

Or, I think it was a measly 22. I was either in the 20s or 30s. I often make it to 40 for the first round.

I am 5'9" and about 111 to 112 pounds. That apparently makes me rather underweight. It could be my metabolism.

I admit that I'm too weak for most of the challenges on their site's screenshots. For instance, there was something about diving a distance underwater and pulling a 10-pound weight back up; my breathing habits while diving have always been bad and I've relied on holding my nostrils shut just to pull off diving underwater without my nostrils flooding like the basic bitch I am. I've tried overcoming that habit, especially this past summer, but I still can't submerge myself headfirst without nearly choking through the nostrils, let alone opening my eyes and seeing with these godawful eyes of mine. I think that as nice as this site is, it'll take a lot of work for me just to reach baseline 'strenuousness.'

I'll see about joining after I've lost another 15-25 pounds. This site does look great, I just think I'm too much of a soyboy to really get anything out of it. Plus I'd probably manage to fail that 12-week bootcamp.

Well step one is to cut out the 8 hours where you're drunk. That will not only free up 8 whole hours, it will measurably improve your life in general. Alcohol fucks with your emotions, especially if you consume enough of it to be drunk 8 hours a day. You probably assume you need to drink alcohol to fall asleep but you probably don't sleep as well as you think you do. The remaining 8 hours you are awake you are likely experiencing mild alcohol withdrawal which contributes to your anxiety and your shitty mood. Trust me I know what I am talking about, I did what you are doing for several years before getting my shit together. It's a hard habit to break but once you break it you will be happier. If sleep is an issue without alcohol I recommend diphenhydramine tablets (same thing as Benadryl but don't buy the name brand, just look for the 25 mg allergy tablets, you can usually get a ton of them for cheap).

Once you're in a better state of mind focus on getting a job. Doesn't matter what it is, especially if you're young and live at home, just working and earning an income will improve your sense of self-worth. People often erroneously believe that the reason they don't get anything done is because they don't have enough time, but that's usually not the case. People with huge amounts of free time generally do what you're doing, which is to become paralyzed by anxiety about what should be done first and what tasks are most important, and they generally end up wasting most of their time anyway. When you have a job you will value your leisure hours more and use them more productively. Also don't stress out so much about what tasks are important. Try and just pick an activity you would like to do, pick a time when you're going to do it, and then only do that activity at that time. If you're going to cut anything else out of your day, cut out things like internet browsing and television if you watch any. Again though the main thing is to just not stress out about it too much, the weight of the world doesn't rest on your shoulders. If you can find work and generate a stable income for yourself you will already have risen above where you were previously, then if you want to take a day or two off every now and again to just vegetate and play video games or mindlessly browse the internet you will have earned it at that point.

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.

I think the trick is to get some idle games, like wrestling game ISOs and 4x games. Then you can have the game's AI play matches against itself, the whole thing captured and recorded easily. While that's happening, you can do whatever you want. Read, watch anime, exercise, anything.

It's what I do, but I think I need more idle games. So far, I'm just doing Civ V (torrented) and WWE 2k18 (torrented)

>tfw stressed out about being stressed out

I think I figured something out.
I am stressed. Really fucking stressed.

I am stressed about not having an olypic medal and a nobel prize and humanity and myself and everything else and the very opposite of these things.

I am an illiterate fuck for not speaking 5 languages and not having 5 DoXs and being better build than Adonis. I am stressed out about me and all the others, about how things are and how things could be and how things shouldn't be and my perception of this and the meaning of thruth and every other fucking thing you could think of.
I have to do more in less time under harder cirmumstances than everybody else and if I get second place I get last place.
I gotta get burn-out and still deliver at least twice as much as the nr. 1 not only in the current time but in the entirety of human existance.

I can't sleep because of all the stress and when I fall asleepp it is through exhaustion which is a sign of weakness.

The only thigs that bring me solice are long baths and ponies but even then my mind wanders or I gotta study everything for the sake of story-telling or drawing or music or philosophy or anything else.

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 I am asking is how to unleash your potential?
That is a good question, and I am first to admit I don't think I know the answer. I know what I would have liked to have done. But I am not sure if it would have been the right way to go either. So take what I write with a good healthy dose of skepticism. Also sorry for rant.

I don't think unleashing your full potential always is necessary. I think it is more important to be content (or happy if you are lucky) with life.

Lets say you are going to have kids. The most important I think is that you have time for them after work. Don't chase after a job that will stress you out, or wear you out. Try to find something that you never have to bring home. And I think most importantly that it is a bit varied so you don't do the same thing day in and day out, and that it is work that you can say is done and complete at one point. As an example a house is complete at one point, a web-server will always need monitoring updates ad infinitum.
Sure a house needs maintenance but it is varied maintenance and seldom time critical (sure roof can become leak, but nothing a tarp or bucket can't temporary fix and give you some extra time). A web-server that is compromised needs to be fixed ASAP and you can't leave until it is fixed. But as a house-builder you will not get calls asking why the house needs a new layer of paint after 10 years. You might get a call on a web-server on why twitter feed don't show up anymore because twitter chose to change their API a year later.

Sure hard work and late nights building your own business can pay of in the long run and grant you much more that if you choose to just be a worker raising your kids. So it is also something to keep in mind. Lots of work in start for potential big gain or an steady pace to retirement.
