do you watch sports?
35 posts and 4 images omitted.
American Football isn't really my kind of thing. Football (soccer) was good, and basketball is fun to watch sometimes, but really I just prefer to play it instead. Badminton and Tennis are fun but a lot of the players can be cunts for some obscure reason. I unironically think that after the USSR fell sports quality around the world has fallen; Russian soccer teams are a fucking disgrace, Russin basketball teams are nonexistant. etc. etc. A unique sport I enjoy is figure skating. You can talk shit about them all you like, but at the end of the day 90% of people won't be able to even begin to replicate those moves without dedicated practice.

If I knew how to pirate RIZIN events and get English language commentary over them I probably would, I like MMA but UFC and Bellator are just so fucking shit I can't be bothered to keep up with them
I watch American football.
>>10628 The best alternative is to watch all the individual fights of an event on youtube but you won't get English commentary.
>>162 Its more fun to play them than to watch.

How many drugs have you used recreational/medicinally? After listing them out, the numbers make lose all hope in society

Has anyone else done Salvia? I find it's a weird experience you can't really read much from, I have mixed feelings about the physical effects, the grogginess really gets to you.
I haven't been drinking for 10 years but used weed, MDMA, amphetamine, shrooms, LSD, and tried some trash a few times in my early 20s (Salvia, DOB, NBOMe). But I had a few bad experiences with psychedelics, and also was frustrated by my older "psychonaut" friends becoming more and more self-absorbed smug assholes, acting like they are enlightened and above all the normies who "don't get it". Personally I wanted to get free from the shitty parts of my mind but I didn't see any real progress from doing drugs. So I started distancing myself from the psychonaut culture and switched to more traditional methods: meditation and later studying some psychotherapy materials to understand my character. As a result, last year I completely quit smoking weed and don't have desire to use any other drugs anymore. In rare cases when my whole body feels bad due to weather or whatever, I just drop a bit of CBD oil which is not psychoactive. The happiness and relaxation coming from a clear concentrated mind are supreme to anything drugs can offer through chemistry changes.
>>10150 Yes I have used Salvia a number of times. I find it to be one of the most fascinating drugs I've ever came into contact with. My full list is >>7709 The experience I got from it was remarkably consistent, and consistently frustrating. I was abducted by entities who fed me into a giant set of gear. It was scary, but I knew that I just needed to stop fighting it and that the gear couldn't really crush me. I could feel the hard metallic surface of the gear though and I panicked and could not submit to the experience. By the time I had calmed down it was wearing off and the entities had left. I did this again and again with the exact same result every time. I think I will try growing it at some point and chewing the leaves instead of smoking extract. Salvinorum A is thought to act on the kappa opioid receptor which plays a role in regulating motor control and nociception (ie, perception of pain). This makes a lot of intuitive sense given the unusual effects. I don't think I can name another drug which inflicted physical pain and a sense of danger on me like Salvia did.
>>7601 I really haven't been able to find much info online about this. I'm a fairly infrequent weed user, but I tried vaping it the other day and I was bedridden with what felt like seizures for a few hours. This wasn't synthetic weed or a bootleg oil cart, this was a medical marijuana pen from a dispensary. I think the pen oil was pretty concentrated, but I'm fairly certain there's no way I could have vaped 'too much' on one drag. So anyone know about this? Everything I've ever heard about weed says it cures seizures, and absolutely does not cause them, but violently convulsing in a barely sentient state with heavy 'visual' effects from brainblasting certainly felt like seizures to me.
For those anons on leftypol who want to post about drugs, they should post here and not shit up other boards.

/leftypol/ has gotten to the finals of the most recent poleague! https://implyingrigged.info/wiki//leftypol/ However, this team is actually run and controlled by ULP... The poleague has asked us however if we would be interested in either joining together with ULP (if they agree) to manage the team, or possibly just creating a separate team of our own. However, none of the mods can really take on the responsibility right now, so is there anyone else who is interested in being involved with this? ULP's team is pretty cool, they have custom models, custom music, and all sorts, so there's definitely a lot of scope to experiment with the engine (blender models can be imported into the game). Thanks for your attention!

The key to having "fun" is getting involved in any region of your choice, which at that point it becomes full larp. I made a new nation not too long ago but I'm not nearly as involved as I used to be. Invasions still appear to still be a thing though which is interesting. >>10284 https://www.nationstates.net/nation=colony_drop

What should I do with my money? Anonymous Comrade 04/22/2020 (Wed) 02:18:29 No. 8703 [Reply] [Last]
I have like 100€ at the end of each month. I have no clue, what I should do with it. I have no expensive hobbies (well, I like to play games on my PC, but buying PC-components seems like a waste of money to me). The existence of the internet has basically killed most reasons, to spend money. What would you do?

Seeing how there’s multiple /co/ related threads on the board. I think we should just put all of them into one general just for clarity’s sake. Discuss anything related to comics and animations from comic recs, leftist animations to comic writers’ attempts to larp as leftists. Seriously is there a worse anarchist in the UK than Alan Moore?

In other news, due to huge disruption by the pandemic and subsequent lockdown, Diamond distribution now no longer holds the monopoly on comics. Is this a sign of AT&T and Disney moving into further monopoly that removes 3rd party completely? https://sys.4channel.org/derefer?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.hollywoodreporter.com%2Fheat-vision%2Fdc-cuts-ties-diamond-comic-distribution-1297309

Cats Anonymous Comrade 06/28/2020 (Sun) 06:19:33 No. 10931 [Reply] [Last]
Do you think cats can pass the mirror test? My cats seem self aware, but aren't interested in mirrors. They also have zero understanding of computer screens, and keep crawling behind speakers looking for the source when you play recorded cat meows, no matter how many times you do it. I really wish I could communicate enough with animals to explain how technology works sometimes, or how certain things are dangerous to them. It would be more fun if I could teach cats about light switches, or if we could design VR video headsets with games that cats would like to play.

>>10931 >but aren't interested in mirrors I have seen cats hissing at their own mirror image when it's a large enough mirror that reaches down to the ground. Also it might be that if the cat recognizes it's self in the mirror that it looses interest. >They also have zero understanding of computer screens If you show them video that was recorded low to the ground, from a similar point of view they would have, they get really into watching screens. >It would be more fun if I could teach cats about light switches You can do that, you just have to make switches that grab their attention, you know that switches we designed look tempting for humans and invite us to touch them... You have to do design with cat cognitive ergonomics in mind, cats like pull on strings with fluffy things attached to it, they also like to shove tiny objects with their paws, so a long sideways mounted paddle-switch with a ball on the end, near to the ground, would probably also work.
this thread is shit
>>10931 Peter Gabriel (yes, that one) has spent the last decade trying to fund an "Interspecies Internet" through which humans and bonobos can communicate. https://petergabriel.com/news/the-interspecies-internet/ Brian Pern isn't a mockumentary, it's a documentary.
I'd just like to add onto >>11013 and >>11021, other than the mirror test being anthropocentric to the point of being bullshit it really does depend on the cat. I've got two cats who completely understand what a mirror is but they're not interested. These two had issues with screens and speakers at first, but they figured that out quick and will watch action movies and nature shows, and figured out how to open a sliding door (but they were too weak for the lever) as well as a round knobbed door within a week of encountering them at a few months old, plus a bunch of other shit they have no business understanding. They even understand a surprising amount of English compared to other cats. I think most cats are only inquisitive about cat stuff, while others like these two are more curious about the world. To be fair these two are Siamese which are different.
