I've realized that factually nothing can save me from all my problems. Therefore I'm committing suicide sometime in the next seven months or so. Like many I've wondered over the many different methods of going about it and was wondering which is the least painful and easiest method to achieve for an incel? This means no guns/hardcore drugs or anything that you fags can't easily obtain.

I am a KHV Unifag that grew up very isolated. My birthday is next week and my (3) friends (including my oneitis) found out somehow and told me that we have to do something.

Now the issue I am facing in this situation is that I never celebrated my birthday since my single mother never cared about me. I have absolutely no idea how to act or what to do. Am I supposed to invite them somewhere and pay? Are they supposed to invite me and pay for me? Where would I even go to celebrate a birthday? I was never even invited to one so I don't know what to expect or how all of it works.

I simply don't understand how birthdays work

After I finished boosting boardgames [Ticket to Ride, Catan, Betrayal], I started to walk out with medium-sized, ruled Moleskines [the pastels blue, green, and pink; bright German red; unattractive grey; fabric-covered Navy chic].

These are my projects in mind:
>bright red: codify things that I don't yet know (how is steel made? how does refrigeration work?), research, and record findings
>fabric-covered: quotations that i pull from essays (e.g. Sam Johnson, Allen Tate), philosophy (Kierk), and literature for future reference
>pastel green or blue: poems that I'd like to memorize (mostly Brit Romantics)
>the other pastel: sentential logic problems, attempts at solving Meno's paradox, etc.
>grey: notes for the upcoming semester
>pastel pink: give to my wife

I probably shouldn't write about my photo shoots for my creative writing class. I gave a vivid description of my nude model and now everyone in class thinks I'm a sex fiend.

I'm pretty sure Weininger's idea of the henid is the only existing good description of how the average person's process of concept formation works, maybe only in modernity, or maybe it's just a perennial problem of people having semi-functional elk brains. It's a really succint phenomenology of pre-concept-formation "fuzziness," where the affective and hunch-driven aspects of thought are still swirling around with the "What is objectively true and real?" component of what a concept is supposed to be, or what the affective aspects are supposed to DEAL with.

You're supposed to set up an abstract meaning-intention of "There is a correct, objective, reality-referring solution to this problem I am addressing here. There is an Outcome I am supposed to reach, by thinkin' about stuff," and THEN you dialectically-hermeneutically address the field of possible meaning-fulfillment (your hunches, affective states, social instincts, observations, playfully guessing attempts at various abstractions, etc.), while being very careful to "find" the truth within that fuzzy field. You're supposed to wade into a field of potential meaning and meanings and impulsese and drives and preferences always already ready-at-hand, and stand against them like a monk being tempted in the wilderness by demons, and go "No! I gotta find the Solution to this Problem! Stop trying to tempt me to take the easy road of conveniently arriving at a solution that suits my preferences, or gratifies my base urges! Begone!" You're supposed to resist that constant tug in a thousand directions to be led astray into a convenient self-referential conception of the world and your relationship to it. By doing that, you set up an abstract concept, it clicks into place from being a henid into being an abstraction, a static universal, an imperishable principle, and only THEN you can you ask how your affects and preferences relate to it, as a newfound truth statement about reality.

But average people, proles, literally cannot do this in the modern world. They just fuzz everything, they best guess fucking every encounter they have with reality so that it always refers back to some easy low road for them to take. I think proles are one gigantic algorithm. Instead of seeking out new and creative concepts of reality, they go
>What have I seen some Cool Socially Successful Person do in this situation?

If the situation is a moral quandary, they don't go
>What IS morality, to me? What ARE my moral obligations? What MUST I do, in this situation? What IS this situation? What IS the universal underlying the empirical particularity of this scenario?
They just go
>DUHHHhhh uhhh I think I saw a guy do this before. Yeah, I saw that on TV! And my lizard mechanical best-guess hindbrain tells me I have at least 9 examples of well-dressed fits-in-the-world normalfaggots reacting similarly to similar situations, and not being punished for it! THEREFORE that's what it's "reasonable" to do in this situation!

the night that resides in her eyes
it brings my hands inside her mouth
and it's really a shame
that we weren't born inside the sea
with the salt as our mother
and the sea bed's deep green,
the silent dark to confort us.

the night that resides in her eyes
brings the passion to my lips
lips broken from the drought

there is no point in shielding yourself

you're allready broken

under the sun's heartless decay
i long to be lost

and to find

the night that resides in her eyes

I have been thinking about the same thing actually. For me I feel I have two options for doing an hero.

1. Exit mask; just a bag of hellium it should be completly painless as the body can't feel the diffenencre between the stuff you are breathing in right now and the helium.

2. Hanging: I will calculate the necessary amouint of Force to break my neek so I don't suffucate and die which will also be painless.

But i know for a fact that I will never do either of those because I am a coward, that is scared of the repercussions of killing myself.

Because you fell for the friends/"you can rely on other people" meme. You can't rely on anybody ever, be an independent unit that appreciates the opportunity to bask in the occasional charity that you might encounter but otherwise understand you shouldn't expect or model your life around assuming people will do anything for your favor or benefit. It's just so easy to operate under the premise that nobody will ever do anything for you. It's totally liberating.

Everytime something ends, I am filled with dread. My friend died recently , a truck ran over him. I can't forget seeing his face at the cemetary. At one point his head turned while he was being lifted, his dead eyes looked at me, as if showing me the fragility of existence. No wonder a lot of philosophers write about death. It's a profound experience. Knowing people around you might not exist anymore, knowing you'll meet the same fate, that it could happen at anytime, it's unsettling. A man was taken away at the prime of his life, the things he could have done, the life he could have lived! These philosophers on the other hand, talk as if they aren't afraid of it at all. Markus Aurelius, he keep mentioning death as if it's nothing. Did these people actually feel the way they wrote? Did they try to put up a bold face while writing this ?
If only my friend had written his thoughts down. I would read it.
>>
>>10529566
Rare that I respond to posts in threads like these, but I sincerely hope you turn to Aurelius and the Stoic school as a source of strength against the looming nihilism of the world.

Aurelius in his lifetime faced the death of several of his youngest children and at least one wife - in response to which he wrote in his Meditations: "One man prays: 'How I may not lose my little child', but you must pray: 'How I may not be afraid to lose him'."
Death is an inevitability, no amount of awe or terror at its approach can stave it off.

>>
>>10529685
On the job, you knew what to expect. It could also have built up into what you felt later on. One of my uncles died recently as well. So atleast in my case I know that's what happened.

>>10529614
I did read meditations. I am reading Epictetus now. Hopefully this will make me mentally stronger. So how do you deal with death if not with awe and terror? Epictetus says something along the lines of - "if you fear it and tremble at its approach you can't live life" I think that is spot on. It still is a humbling experience .
>>
>>10529685
Life is a lumpy weird thing. The only wrong thing to do is try to even out all the lumps, so that everything "makes sense." You are an EMT who saves lives, and who is hardened to the ones you can't save, and you gave compassion to a life that otherwise would have gotten no compassion. Maybe that's complicated and strange, but you should emphasize the complicatedness of it and not try to drag it back down. A thousand years from now, somehow, the ripple you create, by caring about an animal when no one else would, will culminate in some kind of wonderful thing. A thousand years ago, no one could imagine an EMT either.

I stalk strangers on the internet to feel less shitty about myself. It wouldn't be so bad if I didn't spend so much time doing it I adopt their likeness and can't stop quoting things that they have said or somehow relating to them. It's like their personality has dwarfed my tireless mimicry and my every critique of them has become a projection of my own faults.

Why don't you just escape your current life and live in hermitage somewhere? There are ways to obtain a fake birth certificate and just flat out leave.

Also you should have some intellectual honesty and humility and accept that what you think is "factual" might not be, including what I assume to be your disbelief in god/higher power in the universe.

I suggest getting a small cabin/apartment somewhere far away where no one knows you and a low maintenance job, ideally working from home, or a job where you sit and do nothing and have free time to read/write (like parking structure security booth guy, librarian, something like that) close to your place.

Maybe waking up from something unusual, like from a coma, or a drug/alcohol bender, or a long ride somewhere, or from being resucitated after a near death experience (can be a great catchy opening, some trippy/enlightening outer body experience, meanwhile sheer panic from the people reviving her), or like in the middle of a park with her pants around her ankles after being roofied. You can use the physical act of "waking up", and probably retain the meaning behind it, but use creative ways to do it to both avoid "cliche" and more importantly to make it an interesting catchy opening.

You know what Nietzsche said about the Abyss? That's kind of what's happened to me when it comes to going through the internet and getting "redpilled". Perhaps a more apt metaphor would be that of an H.P. Lovecraft story and I just happened to stumble upon the Necronomicon, revealing the horrors of the universe to me all at once. Everything I thought about love and family is a load of bullshit when push comes to shove. Also, there are (((people))) who have been profiting on the mistakes, shortcomings and vices of the masses. /Pol/ would like to blame everything wrong with the world on the Jews for subverting Western Civilization, especially when giving women rights like voting, but all that shit happened because people allowed it to happen. At the end of the day, the instigators of man's doom is himself, whether he exploits his fellow man for his (or her) own gain and invites his demise upon the exploited man's revelation of his exploitation by the exploitative man, or he ignores potential threats that will prove to be his undoing in the future. Nobody but us, anon... nobody else in the universe but us...

Can someone please tell me how to approach women in large lecture hall classes? I am pretty good with women normally, but I am completely terrible at approaching them. Having it be through a completely unintimate, huge class makes it so much worse as well. I am doubly inconvenienced as I happen to sit near an absolute goddess who always sits alone and doesn't seem to know anyone else in the class. Whenever I rack my brain looking for excuses to talk to her I come up blank. The only plan I could think of is to find where she normally is and then bump into her and go "Oh hey don't I sit near you in Dr. Whatshisface's class", but I feel like I'm not desperate enough to do some light stalking.
>>
>>10530921
First of all: she isn't a goddess, no more than you are a god.

In conclusion, it is too late for you. Save her to the spank bank and move on to the next tease.
>>
>>10530921
Just talk to her

>>10530921
1. No woman is a goddess. The sooner you learn this the more pain you are going to avoid in life. The greatest piece of wisdom a man learns as he gets older is that it's possible to feel all that worshipful sentiment when you look at a woman who is so beautiful (and quirky and unique and whatever the fuck else you like) that it hurts, feel all of it, without actually committing to it and putting any stock in it.

2. No woman is a goddess, seriously. If you learned more about her you'd find out she's a boring bland cunt.

3. The best way to approach women is to have a reason to approach them. It's more common in Europe to just walk up to a pretty girl and say she's pretty, and only attractive people do it. In North America you have to have some pretext of "heyyyy haha you're cool :) We should hang out more." If you don't have that, it's hard to drum up a reason for approaching. You'll just be some guy.

4. The best way to approach women is to approach as many as possible by having as many "heyyyy haha you're cool"-able women as possible. Keep doing it, fire and forget, try to advance all your relationships and get coffee with as many women as possible, and eventually something will happen. Never ever pine after a single girl. Even setting aside stuff like the friendzone, which is a real but self-imposed phenomenon, any woman that you are interested in and already have an excuse to socialize with is going to have like a 0.05% chance of dating you even then. The only way to rig the game in your favor is to get as many women as possible, and never fixate on an individual one.

5. Women are insanely flighty. Even they don't understand what they want or why, and it constantly fluctuates inside their own insane brains. Even if you get far with a woman, even if you managed to ask this girl out and everything went surprisingly far down into semi-intimate supra-platonic things, she could still bail out at any moment because her vagina hormones blew in the opposite direction for a day. There will be no reason to it. This happens constantly. This will happen to you. Again, don't pine after an individual 0.05%. Amass many. Do not obsess over a girl once the ship has sailed. Just let it sail.

6. Furthermore, while you are courting and coffee-dating these 0.05%'s, remember, in this culture they are likely fucking and sucking random guys. This isn't some /r9k/ shit, this is true. College girls are fucked in the head. They will string along three guys they "actually like" and "actually consider boyfriend material" for 6 months, acting like they're giving all these guys a chance, and all the while they'll be continuing to have casual Tinder sex or fuck their meathead FWB who they claim to hate, because "that isn't serious." Are you seeing why you shouldn't deify women yet? They're not very good.
>>
>>10530997
>>10530921
7. Top secret final protip: You CAN find women who are actually good, weird autistic chicks with morals and principles who don't love to inhale nigger cum off at full blast via Tinder every single Friday night, women who don't use the affections and attention of their erstwhile male orbiters like disposable batteries to power their self-esteem, women who aren't shallow hags who flit from man to man based on their clitoral emotions, etc. But paradoxically, to find these women you need to first learn how to game the 0.05% system. You will need to learn how to burn through all the chaff to find the good girls, the actual goddesses who are so rare that they statistically shouldn't exist at all. Along the way you will have to content yourself with a lot of mediocre basic bitch pussy. That's what women mostly are.

I went to a girl's 19th the other day, the first time I've socialised in like a month and a half. It's identical to a normal night out but there's cake and people are especially nice to the birthday girl/boy. The pay was mixed and case-by-case, like any other night out. We played drinking games, ate cake, and then went to a club and jumped around.


Somewhat unrelated things that happened on the night:

Someone made an earnest heartfelt two minute apology to me and I couldn't remember the instance he was apologising about so I just hugged him and said it was all good. Before leaving I indivodually hugged everyone person I was out with. On the way back home, alone, a group of large black guys surrounded me and there were no potential witnesses. Drunk me grabbed the leader's hand, hugged him and wished him a good time, before leaving. I swear that happened. Hugs solve a lot.

I wish I could write and draw.

I try doing exercises for the latter but they seem like homework. I know you have to walk before you run but it's so unappealing to draw still life in front of you or whatever other exercises.
For writing I always seem to have lofty ideas but it's overwhelming to write. It's like I try to write a magnum opus before anything else. Are writing exercises like prompts and whatever literal memes? Obviously I need practice in writing too.

Im having difficulty starting habits and routines to get my life in order.

More and more I dont like the people im with and I dont want to associate with anyone I know anymore. I still want to be with people just not these people. I just realized the other day that I havent asked anyone to hang out for years, its always other people asking me. This makes me really hate myself, and makes me want to distance myself from others even more since Im being cruel to them even in a minor way.

If I can just start doing the work every day that I need to do and stop getting so distracted then it ill be fine. I wish I had more discipline and less anger.

prompts are good for beginning writers to practice on. since you have ideas already, then work on those.

if you become an actually good writer, for a zine or collection you'll be solicited for short stories that follow a certain theme, paid work for writing from a prompt.

All women choose their partners on Utilitarian criteria. All misogyny, rape, abuse, toxic masculinity, etc. any one man is purportedly guilty of is only in retrospect. They did not exist in the woman's mind at the time of their alleged unfolding, they are only invoked once a better partner has been found or once security is found in solitude.

I read many books, watch many lectures, and spend much time thinking. All I'm looking for is to figure out something that will get me out of my head, to get me to be proactive and engaged in life. I have an epiphany, but once I'm out the door I forget. I'm dying yet I can't find a will to live, I spend my life searching for meaning that the world can't give me. How I wish I could live in the mythological realm of ancient Rome, in the thrall of a nationalistic enterprise fighting for something, whether freedom, race, land, etc. Now everything's meaningless and all the world can offer me is escapism, doing my role in cooperating in a system that only makes the void bigger, there's no sense of community not group identity. Shall I surrender myself to the whims of Christian fundamentalism, or of the white nationalist cause, or even the chaotic anarchists? So what if they're wrong. So what if they're pathological. At least they have a mythology, a purposeful path, a divine role in their righteous glory, something that can fill the void of meaninglessness that this putrid society of "progress", hedonism, passivity, and escapism. I want to belong to something higher, and not contribute to that which takes this away from me and others.

Why do so many people jerk off to Aquinas? Essentially ordered action is shit; No chain of action can truly be traced back to the "unmoved mover" because it requires all these actions to influence each other at the exact same moment, which simply isn't how it physically works. Any further causal link in an essentially ordered chain of action must, by the laws of physics, be displaced in time from both it's cause and what it effects, which negates the entire point he was trying to make.

Personally, the more I find out about China, the more repulsed I am by everything Chinese. I couldn't call myself even close to being intimately familiar with their culture though, so maybe this effect would reverse at some point. Or maybe not.

If you really want to find "truth", don't look for an ideology. Take these words, and try believing them for a moment: "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you". A more accurate translation is "ask, and don't stop asking(..); seek, and don't stop seeking(..); knock, and don't stop knocking(..)". So knock, and don't stop until a door is opened.

So you're saying that there will be an energy that will allow you to embrace life and engage with the world if you simply find meaning and purpose with the never-ending search of a source of meaning and purpose. That I will never be able to actually find this source, but only in the very process of searching for it?
I still feel that that prices is not broad enough, it leaves me to much dependent on a internal individual, it doesn't also reach out externally for energy, to the world and others. I simply have to reach within myself, while the outside is a source of conflict and anomie. I would like a philosophy that puts me in individual elevation for a higher cause that can extend beyond me, to others and the world. What would you say to this?

To an extent, yes, you can find some meaning in the search for meaning, but this, to my mind, depends on the following.
>That I will never be able to actually find this source, but only in the very process of searching for it?
No, I believe that there is a truth to be found, though not in full: to quote the New Testament again, "now we see through a glass, darkly". The search for truth presupposes that there is a truth to be found, no? If there is no possible end to the search, and no truth to be found, then how can the process hold meaning?

An old tale tells of a lady who wanders Earth.
The Lady who Knows Everything.
A beautiful lady who has found every answer,
All meaning,
All purpose,
And all that was ever sought.

And here I am,

a feather

Lost adrift the sky, victim of the currents of the wind.

Day after day, I search.
I search with little hope, knowing legends don't exist.
But when all else has failed me,
When all others have turned away,
The legend is all that remains - the last dim star glimmering in the twilit sky.

Until one day, the wind ceases to blow.
I fall.
And I fall and fall, and fall even more.
Gentle as a feather.
A dry quill, expressionless.

But a hand catches me, between the thumb and forefinger.
The hand of a beautiful lady.
I look at her eyes and find no end to her gaze.

The Lady who Knows Everything knows what I am thinking.
Before I can speak, she responds in a hollow voice.
"I have found every answer, all of which amount to nothing.
There is no meaning.
There is no purpose.
And we seek only the impossible.
I am not your legend.
Your legend does not exist."

And with a breath, she blows me back afloat, and I pick up a gust of wind.

Yes. Another one. I write a lot. It's what I do.

I waited years for you. I fucked it up. No other way to say it. I drive myself insane about thinking of ways to fix it. So many cool things I've lost in life. I hate it when I'm the cause of the loss. The slow sick murder of my best dreams and watching the blood drain away and not being able to save it because it's too late.

I made so many mistakes with you. Mistakes I promised myself I would never make or never make again.

I waited years for you. You waited for me too. I'm so god damned sorry I broke everything. That I didn't treasure this fragile bond. I did treasure it but then I resented it - god knows why.

Oh fuck, man. I hate being dramatic like this. It's so undignified. But I can't stop thinking about what I lost here. How I lost you. Because I waited so long for you and I fucking had you but then I lost it all.

I would do anything to fix it. Anything in the world because it means that much to me. To have you in my life. To have you desire me and love me again. What have I done this time?! FUCK! ME! I'll never forgive myself for this shit - ever.

A perfect reflection of who I am. That's what you told me once when I asked why you loved me. I should have never asked..

I'm out of words now because I can't think of anything else to say that will change a mind that's already decided. There are no words.

I'm sorry, Georgiana. As deep as my love for you is, that's how sorry I am. And it's fucking deep. Perfect reflection deep.

Be good, my girl.

Because I love you.

I really want to write a story with magic, but how the fuck do you write about magic resistance in a quantifiable way? I'm an extreme autism, so I want the rules to be solid. I've always had a problem with novels that had magic, because it always ended up being limited in ways that confused me.

For example: Harry Potter magic. How do spells get created? Snape actually creates a spell in one of the books but it's not explained how it happens, and apparently just knowing the words is enough to have the spells work. Why does a spell like "Petrificus Totalus" not also stop a person's heart and kill them? It also has Hagrid being straight up immune to "weaker" spells, but there's no way to tell the difference between a weak and strong spell.

On the topic of resistance, I've never liked how the only defensive maneuver to spells was "don't get hit". It just makes it look like a dumb gun fight. There's not even a point in it being magic, they may as well be fighting with guns. I'd like there to be a way for stronger characters to be resistant against certain spells. Using Harry Potter as an example again, I've never understood the difference in power between the teachers and students. If a student knows the killing curse, couldn't they just straight up kill their teacher if they hate them enough? They could use any of their spells on a teacher, and they'd only face the social consequences and the only countermeasure is that there's too many other people with "guns" for them to fight against.

I also can't come up with a way for amateur or new wizards to fight against guns, or a way to remove guns from the story. I'm from America, so everyone has a gun, it wouldn't make sense to learn how to fight as a wizard when you could just learn how to fight as a person with a gun.

I've taken up a new hobby lately, which is playing various kinds of difficult video games. What I've learned from this is that my mental state is like a roller-coaster throughout the day. I drink some coffee and my skill level (along with my mood) is great. But when I crash, I crash hard. My mind goes from riding on a pin to crawling through molasses, and my motivation falls through the floor. Most importantly, all kinds of negative thoughts latch onto my mind in droves, and attempt to assert themselves as depressing truths when all they are is scattered thoughts.

What's crazy is that I've always assumed those mental tangents to be some kind of progress. As if the further I extrapolated things, the closer I approached to a real solution. In reality, the answer is right before me: Fix my sleep schedule. Or eat more fiber. Do some push-ups. It's that simple.
>>
>>10534639
It easier to quantify things like that in an RPG where there's damage numbers attached to things, but it feels impossible to integrate magic into a realistic setting while maintaining clear rules. You can't write a story where someone manipulates rules to their advantage if the only rule is "Don't get hit by the colored laser coming out of the stick." However, if you weaken the magic, it just ends up being pointless because humans are already so fragile. I've been trying to get around this shit for weeks, but I just can't.

There's a train track in town. It's still in use, unless they have those lights and barriers for no reason. I've never seen a train. This is good: it won't block me on my way to work, and I can't kill myself. Because there's no other such way around here, and the possibility would make me consider it all day.

I'm decent looking, but I don't have any circle of friends to hang out with. I'm a veteran in a very liberal city that doesn't really get the kind of stuff I'm in to. Lacking friends, I just sort of read a lot. I joined a few dating websites and I match up with at least 3-4 cuties on Tinder every day, but they usually stop responding to me after a day of talking. I don't think its because I'm boring. I've had a few tell me that they're intimidated because they think I'm too good for them (I read books, get straight A's in my engineering courses, and I've been around the world at 25.) Or, conversely, I feel like I'm not good enough for people that would supposedly be my dating peers. I have no trouble getting laid, but the inability to keep someone around for longer than week has left me feeling despondent and self-conscious. Maybe I am just really fucking ugly or I smell bad or something?
>>
>>10534773
A majority of people don't use Tinder for long term relationships. If you're looking for an actual friend, maybe try going out and doing things you're interested in and talking to people in those circles. When I get lonely, I sometimes volunteer at a local church. I talk with old ladies, while helping homeless people. I don't give a fuck about Church, but it's nice to be around people sometimes, and Church people tend to be more conservative and closer to my values and life outlook than trying to meet someone at a bar.
>>
>>10534773
Try Bumble and keep looking. Join hobby groups and get involved in some kind of community things. Meet people through people. I have met multiple long term girlfriends and lifelong friends via blind dates, and I've also wasted months of my life on OKCupid and Tinder meeting nothing but women with heads full of rocks.

Don't be arrogant. Not implying that you are, but watch yourself just in case. Unfair isolation has a way of turning into a pearls before swine mentality, especially when you genuinely have good qualities and you are frustrated that you can't share them with anyone.

Unfortunately, dating culture doesn't care about what would be fair or what would make the most sense. I've watched several very great and deep women go on Bumble and have platonic dates with 20 guys, before they figured themselves out and actually knew what they wanted. Many of those guys were near misses as a result. There are women out there looking for something real with a guy who has quality traits and a good character, like you do on paper at least. But they are flighty and usually they're getting burned just as much as you are, and it's much easier for them to go into hibernation or to become brutalized and accustomed to casual bullshit. You just have to keep trying.

By all means keep fucking slags, but try to meet non-garbage women too, the ones who aren't looking for mindless sex first and intimacy second.
>>
>>10533524
No, you cuck. The secret to dating women is being actual fucking friends first (I mean friends for the sake of friendship and not friends for the sake of something more later) and maybe that something can come from it, maybe it can't.

If you started talking to her just because she's pretty, just because you liked the idea of her being your girlfriend and not because you genuinely enjoy her company, you need to be honest to yourself about it. If you truly like her as a person, then you should be okay with her being in your life as a friend. But it doesn't sound like that's the case.

>>10534618
What if the magic was some type of secretion from the human body? A lot of times the origin of magic is just unexplained, but if I make it a secretion from a special organ in the human body, it could be a way of having a passive defense against magic. If the magic was secreted through something like sweat glands and formed a mist around the magicians in question, it could give the magicians a defensive aura to protect themselves from sneak attacks or weak attacks. The training a magician does would strengthen the magic organ and give them a stronger defensive aura and more control of the magic they're producing.

It also helps prevent magic fights from devolving into a laser gun fight. I could make it so they're able to secrete their magic juice quicker from their hands.

I hate that america is reduced to europe's failure.

every other country on earth is literally an ethnostate, whites are a minority globally, and we shouldn't have to worry about this shit in america. we should enjoy our asian wives and hapa children no probs.

but fucking europe has dropped so many fucking balls. like literally wtf. why are we allowing shiteholes into ireland? ireland didn't hurt anyone. don't let them redheads die out bruddahs.

I want a sci-fi future where we don't have to worry about this. we have perfected the bloodlines. black shock troopers, jew strategists, white administrators, and hapas for days.

every two pure children there is one hapa. the failed hapas (like eliot rodgers) get trashed, and the good hapa dice rolls get to make their own sub-races, which if successful become their own main race.

this would be a good sci-fi novel, don't lie.

I agree with >>10534860 completely but I also want to say that women DO keep guys around for the ego boost of knowing that the guy is still wrapped around their finger, that they can make him all flustered and shit.

If you're going to do this, make damn fucking sure you're doing it. Go inside your brain and establish an executive order that the girl is your FRIEND and you are going to treat her like a man. Otherwise, your fucking retard male hormones are going to make you flusterable, and you will never know whether she's deriving a power trip from being able to fluster you, and it'll turn into a spiral of doubt and suspicion.

No you are not a cuck for hanging out with a girl after she rejected you. But you have two options now:
1 You can make her attracted to you, by not being attracted to her, at all. To do this, look at her long and hard next time you see her, and reassign her status from "cute girl" to "mineral deposit." Do not ever treat her like a girl again. She is a platonic humanoid. You will never fuck her, ever, so write it off your list of possibilities. Root out and destroy all your secret, subconscious hopes that your friendship will eventually become a relationship. She is sexually inert now. By doing this, ironically, she'll find you more attractive and respect you more.

2 You can falter in your iron will to do #1, and every once in a while she'll jerk you around, and you'll hate yourself.

If you truly have the self-control to do #1, by all means do it.

I have 3 ideas for stories based on dreams that I had, but I have no idea if they're worth pursuing.
The most recent one was about a college student that murders his classmates and elaborately frames his classmates. As the body count piles up and the police can't figure anything out, an unofficial student police forms to find the guilty man but this police turns increasingly violent, totalitarian, and indiscriminate as frustration piles up. The example of the student police I remembered the most vividly was someone cutting off another student's eyebrows (like cutting the skin under the eyebrows with a pair of scissors) to get them to talk/confess

Well, you first have to establish where the magic is coming from before you can establish how you can resist it.
What was the first creature to use magic? How did humans gain mastery over magic? What prevents every plant/animal from being able to use magic?
Where does the magic come from, is it an energy field (like the luminiferous aether or the Force from Star Wars)? What can it do/can't do?

I don't have a good answer for all these questions, but I did come up with magic being an energy field that interacts with matter, which led to evolution selecting animals that can use magic, much like it selected for animals that have eyes to interpret EM waves. Not all animals can use it, and those that can have different levels of proficiency, like intelligence. This also helps explain why humans are the best, they just happened to be that way like with consciousness.
A spell comes from learning a particular way of bending the energy field, somewhat like how sounds are made.

"Muh female brain"

So how does any man know what sex his organs are? what if I've been walking around all these years with a female liver? What if one of my kidneys is a hermaphrodite?

What your dumb ass is trying to express is that you have a female mind, not a female brain, which is ridiculous because you only think this based on your arbitrary ideals of what a man or a woman ought to think like.

You have watched a lot of tv, maybe anime, maybe have a vivid imagination so always paid close attention to all human encounters in your life, males, females. In school, pretty faces, make up, dresses, see how men and others treat them, in the movies, how easy going they can be, safe and cozy and calm, not as much pressure, can wear a flower dress and just spin and twirl in a field of flowers, carefree, no need to look big and strong and defend your life and pride against bros, want to just lay back and have attention come your way, be touched feel what its like to be truely loved and caressed as well as you know a male can, want to be a vase, want to be a vase full of pretty flowers, want to be deeply smelled, want the flowers removed and gently consumed in a pie and/or custard, want the waters of the vase dumped out on the quarterbacks head at halftime, want him to fuck the vase, want to please the quarterback, not be the quarterback, just want to be a butterfly or something, being beautiful and pretty is easy and nothingness, no worries, just be loved and cherished and respected and wanted and powerful and lusted after

Is this what they call derealization?

Do you think people should be able to legally change on their drivers license their gender to being a rock (if that is the social construct their mind tells them they are identity wise?), or a dinosaur, should I be allowed to make everyone call me dinosaur as my pronoun?

Raptor Ralph? Well maybe this is a bad example because one can legally change their name, but a person should not be allowed to view me as anything other than a dinosaur, when they see me they should see a dinosaur and act as such, they should be afraid and run away, and I they do not they are harassing me and being discriminatory and bigoted.

what does brain sex mean? as far as I understood the lingo, sex referred to biologically sex organs/genes, and gender was the term used to denote potential social construct things like dresses, pocket books, lipstick, lingerie, etc. Transgendered, are you not, you are brain sexed, or brain fucked?
>>
>>10538828

Sex refers to organs that have a certain general pattern of dimorphism and that correlate well which each other. If certain neurological traits have those properties then they are sex, not gender.

>"I used to break people's bones"

It's really funny because most trannies have a history of antisocial behaviour and many have documented criminal pasts.

A lot of the time they use transition as a means of avoiding culpability for previous infractions.

Women, statistically, do not go around "breaking people's bones". You're a man. Stop deluding yourself.

>>10538832
there is more to 'the social construct of female' than practically anything else (fat mounds on the chest, and a hole instead of a stick in the pants). Everything else is pure invention and the massive massive bulk of what likely makes a male desire to associate as the other sex. There is really not that big of a difference, look at cats for instance, or fish, or pigeons, if you were a male pigeon would you want to be a female (I dont know if those are the best examples of animals where the 2 sexs look pretty much the same: can hardly see a cat or fish dick)

im seriously not trying to give you a hard time (unless you want me to ;), babe, I just find this topic a bit fascinating especially with its increased prevalence in the population in recent years

>>10538877

Trannies love to pretend that they off themselves young in the same way that emo kids used to threaten suicide all the time. It's a lie for attention.

They even tried to push this agenda by putting out reports that the average life span of a tranny is 30 years old. The icing on this cake? The average age of transition is 35.

So did Bruce Jenner strap himself into an exit bag and then rise from the dead 5 years later to flip his dick inside out? Because that would explain his face but I'm still not convinced.

Thoughts in my mind are wondering, like the hitchhiker to hell, staying long enough to enjoy the view, and leaving before anyone could even notice it was there. Chop off and restructure our bodies like a Mr. Potato head doll. No wonder why so many have such poor body images. But in the end, nothing matters, for death always wins and everything is forgotten in time. Why bother hitting the continue button? Why keep up in the game we call life? If death is the end goal than why should we prolong it? Just seems cruel and terrible to suffer any longer.

I'm so isolated but I don't feel all that lonely. I do sometimes feel it, usually on a quiet Sunday, but it's very manageable and doesn't seem to phase me at all.

I wonder what this is caused by. My personality is split almost 50/50 between introvert and extrovert, so maybe it's something to do with that?

Can this feeling eve be called loneliness if it's not particularly unpleasant? I guess it's inconvenient, more than anything; a distraction.

My feelings of depression are somewhat less confusing. They seem to come at random times and in intense waves that last for few hours or so.

My reading has been going well but I need to stop distracting myself with so much screen time on the computer or my phone.

I'm very happy I decided to read The Odyssey.

I started a stream on Twitch over the weekend and I hope it does well. Even though I only had one person watching (a close friend) it was exhilarating and fun and energizing and seemed to unleash part of me that I feel has been locked in a cage. I hope it does well. I hope I can make my friends and other people smile.

I'm only 1 semester in; its ok, it just seems like a career path that will burn me out, be a stressful daily grind, and possibly unfulfilling. I also don't really dig the type of people and social community that law attracts.

I think law could be good, and the opportunity to start my own private gig sometime in the future is appealing to me. I originally pursued finance (undergrad) until I realised I didn't like crunching numbers as a glorified wagie at a big firm.

I have always been interested in psychology, social sciences and academia, and I think I am very well suited to it; but my parents think its a shit career path.All of my family/friends will try to talk me out of it if I ever said I wanted to pursue it. I know I shouldn't listen to them though, but it takes like 7-8 years to become a clinical psychologist or academic in that field - i'm already 22.
