    What is currently in its Golden Age?

    There's a lot of doom and gloom in these parts. But I'm old enough to have observed that Golden Ages and peaks in any given field are usually not recognized as such until they're over. For example, I think movies and pop music in the 80s were pretty damn peak. Yet at the time this was...

    Are you black pilled?

    The black pill: the belief that the current state of the world is too far gone, and even keeping up with current events is pointless and depressing. A state of nihilism. Usually countered by "just work on yourself and your own affairs". But there is no denying we are part of the larger system...

    Does Bitchute actually work?

    I know that Bitchute uses P2P technology, so you would expect that speeds are sometimes not great. But every time I use it, I can't get any videos to play at any speed that approaches anything listenable. When I watch popular recent uploads, sometimes it almost works, but still with significant...

    Tim Berners-Lee's Solid: is this the free Web we've been waiting for?

    Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web 30 years ago. It seems his project at MIT, known as Solid, is intended to re-invent it, and return power from Google, Facebook and the rest to the individual. The project has been semi-secret with details sparse, but now looks set for widespread...

    Would you hire a woman to be your second in charge?

    Hypothetical: You're starting a small startup in a foreign country. You don't have full command of the language and negotiating bureaucracy etc. can be tricky. You want to hire a small staff. You need a highly capable manager to run the day-to-day things, help with hiring, act as go-between...

    Your best hacks for beating cravings?

    I'm addicted to sugar. About 2-3 times a week, I'll go out to the convenience store and buy something sugary. Like about 200g of candy. And eat it on the spot. At that time, it's like I am a robot. The world is grey, and only eating sugar will bring back the color. Any addicts to anything...

    Cultural tipping point has been reached

    In technical analysis of stock trading, there are "resistance levels", upper levels which are repeatedly tested, and if they are decisively broken the stock can go parabolic, soaring upwards before eventually establishing a new normal. It seems to me that liberal ideology in USA has recently...

    Are body fat monitors accurate?

    I'm looking for a simple way to keep a log of body fat percentage at home. There are the bathroom scales, or the hand-held ones. Which kind and which model is the most accurate?

    Dark Triad now a "Dark Tetrad"

    Dr Delroy Paulhus, the scientist who formulated the idea of the Dark Triad of personality traits in the 1990s, has added a fourth leg to the table - along with Machiavellianism, narcissism and psychopathy there is now what he calls "everyday sadism". Interesting interview with him at...

    Where would you like to live after 65?

    So you've made your cash, and you've aged to the point where women are a lower priority. You've lived the international playboy lifestyle and are ready to take it easier in your later years. Where do you choose? Factors I would consider: Language and culture Safety and rule of law...

    Do you know any women doing their own thing regardless of social context?

    As a Christmas gift I gave my ex-wife (who is an avid sailor like myself) the DVD of "All Is Lost", a well-crafted piece of cinema about a man alone on a boat. It's a great movie for those who love sailing, but I had forgotten one thing when I gave it to her: she's a woman, and this is a movie...

    My food plan for January

    The image below is the meal which I will eat twice daily during an eight-hour window. These two identical meals will be the entirety of what I eat, except that I may have a cheat day on Sundays. [attachment=23739] (I forgot to add broccoli which I will eat a whole head of daily) Daily...

    Wanted: Non-Google-Indexed Pics for Troll Project

    I'm planning a sleeper project to set up fake FB and other social media for a fake SJW/feminist type. Do you have or do you know where I could get pics of a feminist-type woman that have not been released onto the web in any form? I need a series of pics of the same woman, although perhaps...

    Is it Worthwhile Investing Time and Effort in an Obscure Niche?

    I know there are some insightful people on the boards, so I thought I'd just put this out there. Maybe some of you are in the same boat as me. One of my interests has always been a particular creative art which isn't so popular these days. It's an art form in which you toil alone and there is...

    [Media/Culture] Just how bad are things over in Europe?

    It seems to me that in the USA, Canada, and to a slightly lesser extent in the the rest of the Anglosphere, insanity reigns as the media is whipping up anti-male, "progressive" sentiment. In the age of Obama, social justice crusading is the de facto religion of the millennial generation...

    Your Tips For Getting Out of a Lazy Mood?

    Sometimes I really feel lazy and low energy, and just can't get going. Especially when I have a large block of time ahead of me and it feels like nothing is "urgent". I feel a lethargy which kind of settles through my body. Oddly I get very warm feet at these times and I feel it must be...

    Two Observations on David Icke

    I expect that most people here would not give Icke any credence, and actually I believe little of what he says. However, I find him interesting, and would like to make two observations. Firstly, he has a unique energy and in certain moods I find myself sucked into listening to him. I find...

    [Style] Say no to button down collars

    Is it just an American thing? I've seen blogs and articles on how cool "OCBD" (Oxford cloth button down) shirts supposedly are. I was getting fashion tips from some dude who owns a store in the US and he advised me to go for that too. Pretty sure button-down collars don't fly in Europe, Asia or...
