>that shit is so high level
so you can or cant ?
>Just because you don't know everything or why it started doesn't mean you have to give it some fairytale.
thats true, i view religion as a personal thing
>There are few possible explanation
im atheist myself but i wont deny the importance of religion for the average man and dont like to ride the high horse of superiority some atheist do
>some people take shit what is said at church in the bible too seriously
thats more or less ture for every community
yeah, but unlike atheists, the moral ground and belief of muslims and christians and other fairy tale believers is protected by law
I just don't get why our country, as super atheist, doesn't just finally stop this stupid protection. No "state recognized religion" anymore, pls, no money from gubmint. Churches can have the same level of state support as any other cultural scoieties and clubs.
imho (i know its edgy) morality is stupid concept. There is only logic. You choose to kill one man instead of five, because its logical, and there objectively is no better solution.
Perhaps, what are the explenations provided by religions then compared to it.
>high horse of superiority
From my experience it's mostly christfags who start they drivel with "objective morality" and acting morally superior. Atheists probably think they are smarter.
Just found out about this? Anybody seen it? I have a bad feeling about it, i don't think its gonna be good. As Ridley Scott and many other showed us, directors usually don't age well.
if someone wants to kill you its only logical to kill them istead
I was refering to that example, when you HAVE to choose between one and five deaths. You know, the railroad?
Damn, i really had my hopes high, but now i don't even want to download it
>mfw just found the CD for Spongebob:The Movie:The game
>mfw it work works
Point is, morality is shit. I decide based on logic, choosing 1 person over 5. If that one person is logical and those 5 are emotional, then i choose the 1.
I save the scientist, easy. Humans don't have the same value. Damn, i'm edgelord as fuck.
>wanna watch a movie tonight
>all nowadays movies are pleb-tier shit
At least i still have my anime
The "do you kill 1 or 5 people" thing is an abstract example, if you make it more concrete by adding additional information and variables, of course people will come to different conclusions.
Morality is an extremely important human survival mechanism, senpai. Do you think that moral development is an inherent human trait for no reason? If you use utilitarian judgment in a non-comfy society then you're much, much, much more likely to get yourself killed.
Yeah look where morality got us, now we spend shitload of money on treating cripples and psychos because it would be immoral to kill them, we invite people of different culture, who were raised to hate ours in here, because it would be immoral to refuse them, we support every retarded decision anybody makes because it would be immoral to straighten them up, and we don't even let people kill themselves, because it would be immoral.
Morality was useful couple thousand years ago maybe, but times change, nigga.
I also read Stirner for some inexplicable reason, my life has changed forever
it took me like year before posting there
also remember to start with the greeks :D:DDDD
From what you said, you are implying that morality is something natural to humans, meaning its the bond, that held the pack together back when we were animals, from which i can assume the basis morality rule everywhere is "help others".
And that just doesn't apply at this day and age.
Shut up woman, men are talking
most people are just memers anyway
I guess being generally aware and having some defined views on the nature of literature and thought is the only requirement
whatever one may write about /lit/ will look like ivory tower bullshit, simply because literature is a relatively rare hobby
>meaning its the bond, that held the pack together back when we were animals
>back when we were animals
Nice assumptions about a writer you never read there, lad
im not that polebro but sapkowski is entry level teenager shit
I read all books by Sapkowski (except Żmija because fuck this shit)
he knows much about the genre and certainly recognises finer points of it but as a writer he's painfully mediocre and seemingly ignorant of fucking pacing and style and so on
its fine if you enjoy it but you will get bored with fantasy soon, there are much better books than genreshit
>fell for The Black Company some idiot on /lit/ was forcing
>had to throw that fucking book away after 50 pages
Well, i'm not gonna deny its been a few years since i read any fictio. Since i study history, i don't really have time to read anything else anymore, and my teenage opinion may not reach your levels.
I get a feeling that there is unwritten rule that for a book to be considered unversity-level, it has to be written as much boring and dry as possible. Not joking, i literally feel my sense for good literature slipping away as i force myself to read another page.
every linguistics book
it's still humanities but too autistic to have nice easy books
i read a lot of dry military related books but it does not stop me from appreciating good prose or poetry
>tfw reading 2k pages about the uboat war on the atlantic with day to day reports about the germana activity
I always had great sense for literature, i read a shitload as a kid, always had best essays, best grammatics and everything. But got fucking dammit i had so much trouble understanding a single stupid small poem. Shit is too abstract for my cold, logical mind.
>camera detects you peeking and scolds you for it
i wasnt that much into peotry until my 20s due to the shit things we get fed with in school
Brown eyes are master race desu
Anime is what always makes me feel better when im quitting weed :3
You're somewhat correct, but you don't have the whole picture; morality is a shared set of values that allow for a society to be cohesive, distinct from other cultural groups, and comparatively free of conflict because there is agreement as to what is right and wrong. Ethical concerns aside regarding what the criteria are for killing people or letting them die or whatever you're proposing, and who decides on them, you're suggesting that cultural fabric that holds society should be unwound in favor of a cold set of criteria dictated by god knows who, that would fail miserably anyway because the worth of a human being cannot possibly be quantified, and any utilitarian criteria would just be the moral judgments of someone else imposed on everyone else because it requires subjective value judgments.
No, i mean it honestly, when you have abstinence from weed, you feel bored and cold whole world is ugly, dirty and stinky, nothing tastes good etc. But when i watch anime, i suddenly just get lost in this cute, cuddly, smiley world full of pretty clean warm characters. Its like my soul gets cuddled up in a blanket, gets some warm tea and just gets comfy.
>But when i watch anime, i suddenly just get lost in this cute, cuddly, smiley world full of pretty clean warm characters. Its like my soul gets cuddled up in a blanket, gets some warm tea and just gets comfy.
thats some next level escapism bro
>when you're sick
does not happen to me
never could get into them, prefer the physical touch of a real book
>instead of focusing on how shitty you feel, no?
whatever works for you friend, do you munch on the usual moeblob shit ?
This. I literally mention it here like once per two weeks, during my usual blogging here, since its a big part of my life, and every fucking time some fedora faggot calls me out on it, even though i'm not trying to promote or imply i'm cool or anything.
Agree on the audiobooks, just when you're sick, your eyes are usually tired as fuck.
Also i watch pretty much everything except mecha, never understood that. Moeshit is just best for getting comfy. Pic related and Darker than Black are my favorites overall.
I'm comparing abstinence to an illness
>Darker than Black
it wasnt that bad for an anime
>Moeshit is just best for getting comfy
moeshit rubs me the wrong way, too infantile for my tastes
>didn't even take much forcing
yeah ... i need to force fertile slovakia harder :^)
>tfw I ocassionally browse /lit/
>tfw late to the party
>too infantile for my tastes
More like too much customer service for me
I know what you mean, pic related. But we're not all the same. I'm actually embarrassed of the fact that i smoke it irl.
>Still smiles and enjoys himself
people have many fake mask they put on
Oh, I know. In Vancouver weed is so pervasive and easy to get that it's pretty much like having a pint, so I can smoke it without feeling like an idiot. There are still brainfried stoners, though.
>should I walk to the store?
do you want to get raped by cigany femanon ?
are you making homemade pizza ?
sit around for 30 minutes
the problem will solve itself
>it closes in 30 minutes
what kind of barbarism is that ? we have shops that are opened till midnight here
In here its pretty common too, but i still found like 10 places around my house where i can smoke alone so nobody sees me. Partially because hobos always want some, partially because i don't wanna stink other people, but mostly because i know that people look at me like at some junkie or edgemaster.
>Not eating will hurt you.

Meat braised in red wine for 3 hours 8)
Only if I can get an EU greencard :^)
If I end up moving to Prague and /v4/ meets up, I will cook for you all
>braised in red wine for 3 hours
lovely, although I prefer beer for this purpose, unless it's venison, then wine is just perfect. And brusnicová omáčka, no idea what do I call brusnice in English.
>/v4/ meets up
not going to happen, very little people would be interested in meeting anyone else.
>Sounds odd, is zalohy for retards and degenerates?
for everyone. They won't keep you out if you have a university degree.
Holy shit this anime is hilarious. Maybe because even i had this "mysterious badass" phase at elementary school
I'd be interested in a meetup desu, but i'd be pretty fucking anxious about it
When i was looking for it, i saw there are like thousand OVA's, special episodes and shit from that, thats what you mean?
It's lamb shank braised in a thyme and rosemary red wine sauce with mushroom, carrots, garlic parmesan mashed potatos, and zucchini baked in olive oil w/ italian herbs and parmesan
Yeah, /v4/ does seem to have much nicer and more interesting people than other generals
Cooking for people is so gratifying.
The side is baked zucchini. They're actually really good even if you hate vegetables.
Yum, I've never braised anything in beer, but you can't go wrong with beer. Do you have any good recipes?
It's called cranberry sauce here. Oh man, it's sooooooooooo good with venison. Black- or redcurrant sauce also works really well with it.
>Only if I can get an EU greencard :^)
it can be arranged, are you are submissive qt ? :^))) do you love meat and alcohol ?
>/v4/ meets up
i wouldnt actually mind that if it wasnt for the required traveeling
most food looks like shit unless its photographed with pro lightning
>tfw on 7th beer
>just got out and bought 4 more
i will become comfy today
The meat was so tender that it fell right off the bone, to the point where it was hard to pick it up with a fork.
>not going to happen, very little people would be interested in meeting anyone else.
even if I offer free food?
>'d be pretty fucking anxious about it
That's what pubs are for m8.
I met a few people from a troll group I used to be a part of in London. It was pretty awkward at first, but after a few pints we all had a fucking blast.
>it can be arranged, are you are submissive qt ? :^))) do you love meat and alcohol ?
yes yes yes)))))))
>the required traveeling
Yeah, I guess that would be the biggest hurdle aside from trying to get people to overcome their shyness. It could be lots of fun, though, or at least better than the /brit/ meetup.
>you can't go wrong with beer
actually, you can. It's got to be a good beer and you'll only find out which one fits well by trying it out. Plzeň works well, Krušovice is fine as well.
>any good recipes?
I just leave it in beer, black pepper and salt overnight, that's it. I like simple tastes and the beer is strong enough, unless you have some piss instead of beer.
and I can't tell you what to serve it with, I eat it alone.
cranberries, of course. Worked in a kitchen in Scotland for a couple of months and my culinary vocabulary is still near-empty.
>I'd be interested in a meetup desu, but i'd be pretty fucking anxious about it
same here. I rarely, if ever, meet with more than one person at a time, let alone more than one stranger.
>even if I offer free food?
hell, I'd even help you with it
but... meeting people is scary, you know.
>but it looks like shit
To me that looks a lot more appetizing and tasty than any gourmet stuff desu senpai
Looks like real food
Sounds pretty gub, I'll try that sauce sometime although I doubt I'll be getting my hands on lamb anytime soon.
I like cooking for other people so having /v4/ eat some would be nice, and a v4 meetup would probably go better than the brit one but >>53049706 >i'd be pretty fucking anxious about it
>yes yes yes)))))))
do you like to be tied up, choked and degraded in your sex life ? :^))
>trying to get people to overcome their shyness
i dont think that would be a big problem
bread, its center stumped down with a spoon and filled with egg, seasoned with salt and pepper, the edges buttered and sprinkled with cheddar cheese, baked in the oven for 15 minutes at 200 degrees
>I doubt I'll be getting my hands on lamb anytime soon.
Is it hard to find in Hungary? Braised beef or turkey leg is also decent.
>I like cooking for other people so having /v4/ eat some would be nice, and a v4 meetup would probably go better than the brit one but >>53049706 >i'd be pretty fucking anxious about it
I bet everyone would be anxious, but it fades away quickly from my experience. The biggest hurdle would be not chickening out.
>do you like to be tied up, choked and degraded in your sex life ? :^))
sorry anon, I'm p vanilla
>i dont think that would be a big problem
I think most people would be fine, but it'd be nice to get some of the more introverted people in /v4/ to hang out if this were to happen.
Yum, what kind of bread? Sounds like a great breakfast.
>although I doubt I'll be getting my hands on lamb anytime soon
try that pork tenderloin thing i posted before, shit is easy as fuck to make and delicious
>sorry anon, I'm p vanilla
thats a shame but we can gradually work on it as we got :^)
>I think most people would be fine, but it'd be nice to get some of the more introverted people in /v4/ to hang out if this were to happen.
i think the more introverted people would not even consider participating
>Anybody knows what he looks like, age and shit?
there was this one photo that he took of a crashed tram with his reflection in the window )))
>i think the more introverted people would not even consider participating
I think the people who post the most and are recognisable are the most introverted ones.
Well now i can be sure i'm gonna recognize him on sight
i cant speak for everyone here but i post way too much than i should and i love interacting with people irl but moving to another town made my social circle be nonexistant
>Is it hard to find in Hungary?
It's not exactly hard to find, but it's a bit too expensive. I don't really eat any meat other than pork, chicken, and the occasional beef, although for christmas we did have turkey and duck.
>The biggest hurdle would be not chickening out.
>try that pork tenderloin thing i posted before
I occasionally make pork or chicken with random sauces/marinading
Sweet, def going to try making this.
>thats a shame but we can gradually work on it as we got :^)
bondage is oppression of and violence towards womyn, fuck you shitlord, etc
>i think the more introverted people would not even consider participating
I know and it sucks :(
Dunno, it seems like a pretty even mix, and even the introverts on here seem like relatively socially well-adjusted people. Well, most of them...
the edit of that picture that choco made was lel tier
>bondage is oppression of and violence towards womyn
wew what a load of bullshit, the dom is just a tool to set in motion the fantasies of the sub. im sure you would like it if some strong man would man handle you :^)
no worries i understand its not every womans cup of tea
This is what happened to me. :'(
>It's not exactly hard to find, but it's a bit too expensive.
Same, lamb's a rare treat. Usually I spring for pork and chicken because they're so versatile.

I'm jus memeing
The problem now is that lowering the drinking age in America would be a disaster because of the binge drinking/party hard culture here. It'd basically become England 2.0 but worse because our teens are less responsible with booze. The culture needs to change first.
A little over 2 years. I'm hopefully wrapping things up this term and getting the fuck out of there.
What I wanted to say that it didn't do anything for me, it didn't break down any social barriers or anything, I did not become more motivated to meet girls.
It's a good self-control test and getting spontaneous boners all the time felt good, but that's it.
>A little over 2 years
how come the small social circle then ? did you have breaks in education ?
>I'm hopefully wrapping things up this term and getting the fuck out of there.
Toronto right ? why is it that bad ?
tempest is male and I'm straight.
in all states though?
>Pretty sure it's Vancouver
im a bit too intoxicated to recall properlyn now
>tempest is male and I'm straight.
as if spit isnt ?
no, spit is definitely female, even the name implies it.
kek, nice pic
I like certain aspects of that particular universe, yes. I'm nowhere near your typical hardcore hanshotfirst fan, even though I possess extensive knowledge of the EU
Yeah, some of the states changed it from 18 somewhat recently.
>wot? Czechs are also quite bad the consume alcohol early on
I'm not familiar with Czech drinking culture, but Brits usually start binge drinking in their early to mid teens and continue to throughout their lives. They can get pretty sloppy, but drinking is normalized there, so most of them know their limits and can hold their own by the time they hit 18. Alcohol is mystified in the US and kids are shielded from it, so even if they can get their hands on booze at 18, they have no idea what the fuck they're doing and end up getting into a lot of trouble with it. Plus the explicit end-goal in teen/early 20's US drinking culture is to get as wasted as possible, which often ends poorly.
>how come the small social circle then ? did you have breaks in education ?
I actually have a good amount of friends, but the asocial nature of my department, commute time/difficulty, and depression mean that I don't communicate with them nearly enough. It's hard to deal with because I had a really strong social network before I came here.
>Toronto right ? why is it that bad ?
Most of the issues began with my bad relationship with my supervisor and the fact that he's an abusive boss, but this has affected my work and psyche to the the point where I'm mostly causing my own problems now.
Man, I hate to be this guy, but that looks like absolute shit.
You've got to step up your plating game.
This is a bit of an old picture, I made goose with garlic/tomato sauce, smoked onion, and rice, since I didn't have any potatoes.
But listen. You can't just mash shit on a plate, and expect that it will look/taste good.
In better restaurants the onion would be on the top of the goose and rice/potatoes would be closer to the dish.
But you get the point. I hope.
Also hey guys, the memes are real tonight. No BDSM/ high test thread like usual?
looks good btw I just don't care much about how stuff is positioned on my plate
I think tomorrow is school 2bh
Not many people outside of /fit/ like hightest
Nope, I'm planning on trying one on duolingo once I'm off of break. Not sure which yet, though.
Yeah, my presentation wasn't that great, but I didn't mash anything up, and dish was presented as per what a braised meat with braised vegetables and mashed potatoes are supposed to. It was arranged:
-mashed potatoes on side of shank
-braised vegetables next to shank
-zucchini placed on far end of plate to avoid too much wine sauce
-wine sauce poured over everything
Perhaps you think it looks mashed up because the braise juice was poured over everything, which is the point of doing a braise in the first place and makes it infinitely better-tasting than sectioning everything cleanly and holding the wine sauce. In fact, when braised lamb shank is served in restaurants, the shank is usually placed on top of mashed potatoes along with the vegetables it was cooked with and the sauce poured over everything.
no school for me until february, only exams desu
I have my own smoke room outside.
When I was hanging sausages and bacon on it last year, I put some onion there as well.
After that you just fry it up with a bit of olive oil. The taste is incredible.
And I do actually like high test girls. I would never date one, since I dislike gluttonous people, but I fucked two, in past few years.
Kandisznó, that's nice
It matters to me, though
I can't really enjoy food if it doesn't look nice
I actually go to /fit/ too
Just a bit of tough love mate.
The food itself isn't bad, but you still gotta watch out for the presentation a bit.
By mashed up I meant bit bland looking. It has the same colour, and when you cook the food should have some level of contrast.
But it may be just my autism showing, since I'm pretty much a perfectionist.
Life was simple and we were hanging out a lot with friends (dormitory life was nice), I kinda miss it too
Most of the people from my closest circle of friends are scattered around as well
how the fuck do you know thats me?
its good i think, ive been going for 3 months and i think my body already has a nicer shape. i didnt go in the past 2-3 weeks because i was at home, but now im back at the dorm and starting next week again
>Life was simple and we were hanging out a lot with friends
this desu, i was at home by 3 every day and then i had the whole day to just play vidya or do stupid shit with my friends
>Most of the people from my closest circle of friends are scattered around as well
fortuantely im still good friends with 3-4 ppl from my hs class and we hang out almost every weekend
Because you like posting the feel wojak and usually post something along the lines of >tfw no fit gf or that you've seen a qt boxing girl at the gym, yes, I spend too much time here.
>has a nicer shap
Anything in particular that you are wanting to improve or just your overall body?
Have a (You) feelaroni
>Anything in particular that you are wanting to improve or just your overall body?
i feel like im skinny and i look younger because of it, so i just wanna build muscle and gain some weight desu
No worries, you're totally right. I'm consistently bad at presentation, even though almost everything I make is really well-received in terms of taste. I think I'm just shit at design t.bh. Got any tips/resources for improvement?
Do you have
I don't actually share the same mentality as them.
Fit fags like high test girls in one thread, and they shit on fatties in another one.
Also about 90% has to be homosexual.
If you go there, they pretty much just bash women in every thread.
Like /r9k/ but with people who pretend to be good looking.
I'm no expert lad, but I'm working as a saucier right now. You mostly get these advices in the kitchen.
What you could do, is search for Jamie Olivier or Gordon Ramsey, and watch some of their more popular videos.
They generally try to give you tips through-out the video.
And taste is more important than presentation, even though I tend to say otherwise.
Ah, I'll check it out. I have a motor disorder that makes my hands and arms shake, so I can't chop/cut things evenly, and my grasp of color is shite, so it usually takes a streak of luck or a naturally aesthetic food to make my dishes look good. Plus I cook a lot of dishes that are ugly as shit no matter what, like korma, so it's usually not something I even consider.
>I'm working as a saucier right now.
Woah, cool. Have any good recipes you can share?
It ain't no secret that they gay guys are the sort of people that took care of their bodies
You have few tripfags and usuals that aren't gay, but there isn't a lot of them
Man, you are just making me feel bad for being an asshole to you earlier.
As long as it tastes good, it shouldn't matter you. Not with the condition you have, for that I can cut you some slack.
Looking at the bright side of things, at least you can cut things like herbs extremely fast,, right? You just let that hand dangle over it.
And I have have some recipes, but none of them are good, honestly. My taste buds are weird, so I cook weird foods.
You'll do a better job just googling things. Or watch the guys I recommended you, they know some tasty shit.
I bosted this in the new thread, but I'm not sure if you saw it.
>Man, you are just making me feel bad for being an asshole to you earlier.
Don't feel bad, there's nothing wrong with giving (correct) constructive criticism. It's definitely something I should focus on improving now that I've gotten good with flavor.
>Looking at the bright side of things, at least you can cut things like herbs extremely fast,, right? You just let that hand dangle over it.
Hah, sadly no. The tremors are side-to-side rather than up and down, so the only thing it does is make me cut shit unevenly. Usually I just use scissors to cut herbs or shred them by hand because using a knife is a massive pain in the ass.
>And I have have some recipes, but none of them are good, honestly. My taste buds are weird, so I cook weird foods.
Weird foods are the best, though! I'll eat and enjoy almost anything that's well-made. Aside from crocodile and roasted melon seeds dusted with matcha powder. Boy is that some vile shit.
