Man the guy really inadvertently makes it extra entertaining by having that weird I think Australian way of talking on top of it

I wonder what other accent and dialects make specific imams, priests, rabbis or whathaveyou a more interesting experience. Like imagine a rebbe talking in this really thick Scottish regional accent about Adonai.

You misread my post, I believe. I wasn't trying to say that I feel shame and thus think you are a bad person. I only wrote that I felt shame, which is a truthful observation about myself. I was mostly amused about myself; which is something that happens more the more I try to observe myself. Funny how that works.

Also, I have no clue what a wet blanket is whatsoever, but I have a strong feeling that this post will earn me even more of your praise. Looking forward to it (:

Your brother looks like he has the Downes, no offense. Somehow that pic makes me realize what a cruel barbaric people your people must've been a millenia agoor maybe their frown is in perpetual russification :--DDD Great irony, I put a red star on my mini Christmas tree this year just because I thought it'd be funny also everything was sold out, maybe I'll upload pic.

You know everyone says it is pagan but really I think at least on USA if not whole Wect that everything gift giving or Christmassy like trees, decorations, colorful lights, all it is just like wrapping paper and the day is an empty box. What matters is what you as family have put into that box of your family traditions. I can see how a Jew or Muslim can also celebrate our Christmas while making it about Jewish or Islamic spiritual lessons, just as much as those of us who are also white American can be atheists and celebrate the holiday. I mean just put a date tree and teach about the prophet Jesus ffs probably majority of the people here don't even bother with the alleged Christmas aspect at this point, except maybe Catholics. In a certain sense just going for Chinese food makes it, in my mind, that those of us from Jewish background also celebrate Christmas as well in their own sense, while the people actually going to Mass is really small compared to the whole. I also think it's pretty funny and pretty fitting if eventually another religion steals Christmas from us just like we stole the actual date and a few customs from the pagans by basically saying "so okay you can keep your giant Scandinavian burning goat and put a tree in your house for some reason, just make it about the baby Jesus okay?" I think that in those regard early Christians in the royal houses were like the first burgoids, assimilating all it came across. What's that? Samm Hain you say? Sounds like a saint's day to me. Oh you have a fertility cult? Okay let's hide colorful hard boiled eggs everywhere and talk about Jesus.

Might spend the rest of it on a copy of the Hanfeizi in Chinese if I'm really going to be writing my thesis on it, though it's a bit premature to think about it right now.

Are there any good magazines or similar things you follow?

I got the idea because i'm currently reading this and i like the idea:

https://journalofcontroversialideas.org/volumes_issues/1

Wikipedia says:
"The Journal of Controversial Ideas is a cross-disciplinary, peer-reviewed academic journal that aims to allow academics to publish using pseudonyms if they request it.[1][2] Established in 2018 by philosophers Francesca Minerva, Jeff McMahan, and Peter Singer, the journal began accepting submissions on 20 April 2020.[3] According to McMahan, the journal is needed because of the fear among academics about publishing articles that support certain contentious positions.[4] Minerva came up with the idea after experiencing death threats and difficulty finding employment because of an article she wrote on the ethics of newborn infanticide."

I hope it's not getting too /pol/ tier, but for now i stay interested.

I don't know much about him other than that he's a silicon valley venture capitalist with philosophy background who founded or invested many major big techs and some of the most valued cryptos. He is a Straussist who relentlessly pursues his reactionary vision via media and politics. That's why you can see psudoscientists name among nobel prize winners on inference contributors.

Science right now and maybe never will be sufficient to explain, represent and recognize or identify everything that is important to humans. Thus art. Art is a way to recognize something that science cannot recognize. Furthermore, unlike classical science understanding, art is not foremost about representation these days but experimentation. But not experimentation in the way of checking hypothesis in a lab construction, but trial and error under non-artificial conditions. Art, therefore, is recognizing and practical realizing of things that science cannot.

I just can't help but think Iberia must be one of the most beautiful and best places to live. I'd also actually be quite happy with Lebanon I think if they could get their shit together.Right now my thoughts are on Ireland, just because the people seem likeable and the climate is more or less ideal for me, except it could use some more thunderstorms and at least a few days of dry and cold than wet and cold each year.

I'm sure there are many things I still don't know about how truly awful Iberians can be somehow because they are still people afterall, but it just strikes me as one of the lovelier, happier places to live anywhere in the world.

In my own impartial view, we are great. I like the people I live around and I'm happy I live around them. My neighbors are good people. This village microcosm doesn't represent Portugal, let alone Iberia but I think we're alright. People are louder and more shrill on the other side of the border though, but they aren't bad people either. This isn't the best place in the world to live in either, I'm sure there are places with a better outlook and prospects but I'm thankful I was born here and not somewhere worse.

Budapest or Prague could be nice. Lots of history for cheap bucks. You can sit down in a tourist trap pub and still only pay 3€ per beer.

Nice clubbing in Budapest, if you change your mind.

Nice drugs in Prague, they basically have coffee shops. But they sometimes dont like tourists in there and keep it local.

Part of the problem is also that people approach this subject with an absolutist mindset: masturbation can be either good or bad, period. So if it's good, there can never be too much of it; if it's bad, even a single masturbation session per year is unnaceptable. As with most other things, moderation is they key to not turn the desire to have sex into something harmful for you or other people, while also not living a miserable life because you can never relax and feel some pleasure from time to time.

I think the only real difference between masturbating with your own thoughts or doing it with porn is that you can have more control of your sexual fantasies so you don't feel so bad after it because you had a morally objectionable sexual fantasy; it also helps you to not let your own behaviour be influenced by it.

This doesn't mean, however, than masturbating while watching pornography is something bad in itself, as you can always just watch vanilla porn and get it over with. The problem, in any case, is that the mass difussion of pornography on the internet makes it easier to have access to morally objectionable pornography, and thus, to morally objectionable sexual fantasies.

it is precisely your hook ups (or your serious relationships, if you manage to have one) the ones who serve as a motivation ("I'll not masturbate to have some energy to have sex later") and as a reason ("why would I masturbate if I could hook up again?") to not masturbate

Good posts.
I thought I was fine but over the holidays I was kinda depressed and fapped too much and to some nasty stuff to boot. Got to the point that I drunkenly masturbated on the way home outside in the bushes, so that was a bit of a reality check.
Been mulling it over and came to some similar conclusions, just leaving this post here as a New Year's Resolution of sorts.

I feel like this board with its long-ass threads is a variant of the continuity lock-out for newcomers, or just people who noticed a thread relevant to their interests too late.

You don't need to continue or participate in already existing discussion chain, you can just start your own.

I usually just open the today thread don't read any of the previous discussions, make a provocative shitpost, and watch the thread descend into chaos. I don't even read the ensuing conversation either, knowing that I caused a chain reaction with a single post is enough to give me supreme satisfaction.

Really makes me feel like a sigma male master manipulator steering the historical narrative from behind the scenes.

You're bitching about all this while bumping a lone k*hl thread for whatever reason. Maybe the problem isn't the thread, but you my friend. Have you considered trying to engage in any of the other threads going back 25 pages instead of a cabbage tier shitposting thread?

As for the board itself it's a good way to start weaning yourself off internet addiction. I am perpetually embarrassed at how severely I have wasted my life on the dumb shithole that was KC. Anything after like 2014 was complete garbage yet I stuck around for years because you can hit refresh. If you want to see what that garbage leads us you can check out wherever the cabbagetard pedo network moved these days or 4kanker. I'm sure either will be brilliantly edifying and not filled with sick fucks and sad retards.

If anything it has shown me how pathetic IBs not are, not become, but always were. I wasted the better part of my youth on this trash and pity anyone who wasnt at least dating girls or going out to bars like I was, or building careers. I'd imagine anyone who didn't even have that would be fertile grounds for implanting any moronic ideology whatsoever provided it made them feel good or a pretend sense of belonging that's totally fake and based on flimsy pretenses while feeding them nonstop misinformation, hate, and envy.

Pretty sure that was the plague of Justinian which was y. pestis iirc. There have been many others taken down by smallpox. It's amazing to me how dumb people were to oppose the smallpox vaccination and elimination campaign. That one virus did more damage to us as a species than all our wars combined, and it along with plague are two of our species most mortal enemies that always had been holding us back.

Really the entire bedrock of modernity is a combination of fossil fuels and modern medicine, and you needed both. If you have one without the other you basically just plunge back into a more comfortable medieval era. Empires were frequently stricken by one pox or another, and often one calamity followed in footsteps of another which is why Pestilence's companions were famine, war, and death. Spanish flu and black death both followed war which helped incubate and spread them everywhere, followed by surging through economic routes like arteries into every major urban zone and outpost. Where a pestilence began first, often food supply would collapse, it would trigger the roiling strifes to boil over into open war. Any one of these things could take down a decaying empire, but the combination of all three will often spell the doom of the old order.

Now that I think about it I dont know what took down different caliphates and Islamic empires. I do know for sure though that the Black Death was the second major plague epidemic, with most scholars seeming to agree that the 7th or 8th century Plague of Justinian was the first known recorded outbreak.
