In other countries, it's acceptable or even encouraged to be polite and reserved. But in America, you're supposed to be super outgoing, loud, confident, obnoxious, and talkative. What's up with this?
I'm in America but sometimes I feel like I'd fit in better in a European country, aside from the whole language barrier thing.

"And then the surgical intervention in the World Trade Center in New York City. Everything top secret and illegal of course. In days of conspiratorial work, somewhere on the 148th floor and using building site refuse they had tediously smuggled into the building under their pullovers, they constructed a functioning load-bearing balcony. In a long complicated process they scratched putty from the tall heavy window, which couldn't be opened. Then they extracted it using suction pads, shunted the balcony out, posed on it at 6 in the morning and had themselves photographed there from a helicopter for their nearest and dearest back home. They kept very mum about it all, because if word had crept out about their coup they could have been fined very heavily for sabotaging a national treasure. Even if it was built by the Japanese. Incidentally, as proof that they were there, there is now a piece of old chewing gum stuck to the outside of the building at a dizzy height."

The early Internet communities were as good as they are because the Internet was not yet the behemoth it now is. Everybody who participated in those communities during their prime (16-45 yo) grew up reading books, going outside, making genuine connections with authentic people, and feeding off of whatever was left of the collective virility brought about after ww2. Those conditions are what made the men of the early Internet, and because those men were such clandestine individuals were the forums' contents good. A teenager growing up after 2005, in a first world country, simply lacks the attention span and self discipline required to match the men of the early Internet, and he lacks this attention span because of the bloated, corrupted beast that is become of the Internet. All attempts to revive or sufficiently replicate 1995-2005 online society are doomed to be fruitless.

the person you are vs. the person you want to be vs. the person you can realistically be vs. the person you're afraid of becoming
Jack Dorsey, the creator of Twitter, recently tweeted about how the value of social media is changing from content hosting to content curation (like recommendations and timeline algorithms). Basically, back in the day, there wasn't much content on social media, so any content and content hosting was good. But now, everybody posts tons of shit, a lot of which is garbage, so they have to use algorithms to figure out which posts a user will like the most, considering that there are tons of posts and a user only uses an app or website for a short amount of time.
What do you think of this?
I know some boomers who think I'm the only young person who isn't super successful financially. Like, how out of touch do you have to be to think the current economy is good? Plenty of people are struggling to get by. A couple billionaires getting richer doesn't change the fact that newer generations are poorer than gen X/boomers/etc. There are fewer opportunities, more competition, higher barrier to entry, and lower pay, compared to what boomers had growing up. But they act like I'm the only person my age who isn't doing well.

it's not terrible, but it's not great either
there are certainly lots of weird health claims about it though, and I'm pretty sure they're all bullshit
if you've never heard of it before, it's basically fermented tea with extra flavorings and stuff
it has a very, very small amount of alcohol in it (not enough to get drunk) and it's slightly fizzy
and because it has living microorganisms in it, if it goes bad, it can really make you sick

Looks are everything. If you look good life is a lot more enjoyable. You gain access to areas that are locked for ugly people. Generally you will be mentally healthier because looking good and receiving positive feedback from people improves your self-esteem. Self-esteem will determine your success in life. This is the truth.
People who say that it's the inside that matters are bullshitters that just want to prevent ugly people from committing suicide en masse. They want ugly people to live and become worker drone for the system.
My uncle posts intentionally offensive stuff on Facebook. It's always political, but not in a smart way. Just basically saying "people who disagree with me are dumb." This isn't exactly intelligent debate here. Lots of toilet-related images and language. Literally pictures of toilets with words on top, implying that people who disagree with him are shitty. This is a grown-ass man, more than twice my age, resorting to this level of trolling. He has a degree and had a high-paying career (I think he either got laid off or retired early or something), and yet he spends each and every day doing the most immature trolling imaginable. He has nothing better to do, apparently. But he's super self-congratulatory, like "I'm smarter and better than everyone else." Bro, if you're so smart, how come you post about toilets and feces every day? Not a good look.
thinkin bout cool stuff I'd learn if I had unlimited time
combinatorics and optimization, epistemology, multiple integrals, qualia, quines, hash collisions, lambda calculus, the functional programming paradigm, differential equations, bayesian statistics, graph theory, complexity theory, set theory, linear algebra, nonlinear dynamics, fractal geometry, non-euclidean geometry, computational geometry, quantum prime factorization (shor's algorithm), FPGAs, microcontrollers, software-defined radio, oscilloscopes, lissajous curves, neural networks, and shit like that
but in reality I'm gonna learn how to put up with a soul-sucking job for 40+ hours per week, how to put on a fake happy face at work and around "friends," how to live on a low budget, and get errands and cleaning done in the small amount of time between work and sleep
no time to learn cool shit
by the time you retire, and have free time to learn shit, your brain will have decreased neuroplasticity and it'll be significantly harder for you to learn anything new

modern social media favors extremely concise oversimplifications of things, lacking nuance and context, so people come to weird conclusions because their worldview is based on 5 second sound bytes, often from dubious sources, lacking real credibility, but "it sounds right, so it must be right"
people also fall for the mob mentality thing
lots of upvotes, shares, likes, retweets etc = it must be true, right? but actually no
I wonder if there are any studies about how social media influences public discourse
not just the people on it, but the medium itself
there's also the issue that the most vocal people on social media tend to be people with no lives, so the Extremely Online people show up disproportionately on social media even when they're the last people you should be listening to
nowadays, "e-celebs" are just people who spend too much time on twitter, tweeting dumb shit
because of the skinner box dopamine reward system, people will often say things just because they think it will get them popular, not because they actually believe it
so everything's distorted and weird
there's also the lack of a true human element, so it's easy for people to be nasty to each other because you're not taking face to face
it just sucks overall

During the Manchu Qing Dynasty the han chinese were second class citizens. Because of this the Han held an intense hatred towards the Manchus. Most westerners who have not read deeply about this time period will miss an important fact. When present day China complains about the century of humiliation done by the Western Powers + Japan they conveniently omit the fact that the Han Chinese were humiliated by the Manchus for almost 300 years. That was the Qing Dynasty.
Today the Manchus are a small minority and their ancestral homeland of Manchuria is overrun with Han Chinese. They've been assimilated into the Chinese Hive and are completely irrelevant. But, there is now a change in attitude for the People's Republic of China. Previously when the Manchus ruled over China the Han hated them but today the Han Chinese loves the Qing Dynasty. That's because the CCP of PRC realized that the Qing Dynasty had expanded China's territory more so than the previous Han Chinese Dynasties. The CCP of PRC claims that they are the true inheritor of the Qing Dynasty and as such all of the territories once held by the Qing rightfully belongs to the PRC.
Of course most countries don't take the PRC seriously. But this shifting attitude reveals something deeply troubling about how the Han Chinese thinks and operates. They are very much like a spoiled child and the best way to deal with that is to smack them in the ass repeatedly. Appease them and they will grow bolder and more unscrupulous. Some measure of ass smacking is necessary to keep them in line.

hey! does anyone know how to get through this site? (matrix4ozv2gicar.onion)
What I´ve found out so far is that there is a help command you can use by typing out "help" and that there is "levels" to this site. You can achieve level 1 by registering an account and using the "redpill" command. It will ask you a question and you need to find the answer. p.s(answer for level 1 is tor). Then once you get past level 1 there is lvl 2. Level 2 asks you to "bruteforce SHA224: 6e6c4063f721b905d0def85a7015c6e411407bc7c71b45ba3b2ae82a". Haven´t gotten past lvl 2, but has anyone gotten past that?
If someone could reply to this thread with their experience that would be great. Thanks!

Taoism is NEET philosophy
Taoism wants you to drop out of the rat race and become a NEET. This does not mean the stereotypical reclusive NEET you might think of. But rather a "normal" NEET who does not hide from society but takes part in it while avoiding the competition of normal people, the rat race. Taoism stresses that uselessness and usefulness is a pointless human made idea that doesn't reflect the true way of heaven. And in order to become a part of the way again you must drop the false human ideas.
This is the sum of Taoism as was told in the book Zhuangzi.
I believe that Taoism is the NEET philosophy because it stresses dropping out of the rat race and becoming a NEET. Confucius on the other hand wanted people to continue the rat race.

What are your opinions on social media?
I deleted Instagram which was the only social media I became deeply addicted to. I’d wake up, check social media for like an hour and then be late to my classes which sucked. And it’s not like I was even checking anything important lol I’d just mindlessly scroll through my feed.
I’ve been out of social media for 4-5 months now and I feel kinda bad though, it’s not like I want to go back to wasting my time but I feel like I’ve lost a lot of friends because I’m not sharing as much of my life as I used to which may sound stupid, but I feel like I’m really out of contact with some people I really did consider as friends.
It’s stupid how nowadays it seems like you have to have some silly profile set up in a social media app with photos of you where you share your life. It’s even more silly how a lot of people who use social media fall into some sort of addiction where they feel as if they have to constantly check their phone to see who liked their latest post or who commented on their pictures.
Maybe I’m just bitter and making a big deal out of everything though lol? I mean I’m not saying social media IS a bad thing I just think that it can become really addicting especially your younger people I feel like that is when it starts to become a bad thing?
I wouldn’t put my phone number out there if I were you

To be honest I feel bad I never actually learned English grammar. I’ve been living in the US for 6 years and I forget got to spell the simplest words :-( Even a 12 year old knows more about grammar than I do. I can’t write sentences correctly, I don’t know where to insert commas or periods and I don’t know how to write a good assignment. I feel like such a failure compared to my sibling who learned all of these things in the 6 years I was supposed also learn about it. I feel really really bad because I need to go to tutors and I can see their frustration whenever I turn in a paper and you can just see the disappointment in their face. I know I’m a disappointment to my family ! I’m failing 2 of the simplest courses in college, it’s just pathetic!! I really wish I could just crawl away from all of this embarrassment but I also want to get better although I don’t know how. I just want to become something useful like my sibling! I feel so meaningless and stupid. I’m supposed to know these things.
Hello, I’m new here, I found this website randomly on Candle. Would anyone mind dropping links to active group chats? And is this an active website? I’m looking for active websites to chat and share discussions. Thank you, have a nice day :-)

Educated young people in our day are increasingly polarized with regards to their opinions on the status quo. It seems that today you hear one of two things:
1. Official State-Sponsored Discourse(tm) "lel orange man"
2. People who casually assume that everyone agrees 9/11 was an inside job, Uncle Ted had a point, the US is a puppet-state of corporate and middle-eastern interests, etc., etc., etc.
How can we make people stay only a little woke instead of too woke or in deep slumber?
