The stress on your body makes it stronger. Muscles undergo hypertrophy in response. Joints and ligaments get stronger too. Having more muscle mass significantly reduces the chance that cancer is able to spread and grow in your body. Lifting also prevents osteoporosis, which is common in women.

To the people posting Kafka, Cioran and all that other depressing shit: read the Unabomber's manifesto.

>>7568485
Nigga, u dumb as shit. Working out causes stress to your body. Then your body reacts to the stress by building muscle, strengthening joints, making bones more dense, and many other things. Thus your body is less susceptible to stress in the future. So in your weightlifting program you make it more stressful. This compounds until with diminished returns. So a natural lifter will eventually only be making an ounce of muscle per year, basically he can't gain muscle anymore. At this point though you are so strong that daily activities cause no stress to your body, as it is well adapted to stress already.

It's the same with cardiovascular health. Your heart can only beat for so long before it fails. So if your heart rate is too high it will fail faster. Thus it is important to strengthen your heart so that it takes less pumps to get the blood circulated throughout your system. By doing cardio you do raise your heart rate. Is that counter-intuitive because a raised heart rate is bad? No, because it is a temporary stress, and your body will adapt to having a slower heart rate while resting.

Quiet, spend a lot of time replaying conversations you had with people earlier in the day/week, frustrated by the perceived mediocrity of your own life and desperate to validate your existence. You dislike tattoos.

>>7570110
You unapolagetically steal lines from books you read and pass them off as wit or wisdom in conversation. You aren't an angry person, except in very short and explosive bursts. You like winter more than summer.

>>7570150
You have a hero complex and tend to seek out "damaged" women, either consciously or unconsciously, because you feel like you can "save" them. You get uncomfortable walking from the light switch to your bed after turning off the light. You're impartial toward ice cream.

>>7570163
You have that weird personality quirk where you feel like you're better than most of the people you meet but you also hate yourself. You have fantasized about being an omnipotent ruler at one point or another, in considerable detail. You haven't dated much lately.

Pretty much right except I don't steal lines from books and pass them off as wit or wisdom in conversations. I always give credit to the author. Never have I ever plagiarized once in my college academic career. I do prefer winter over summer. Can't stand heat and humidity.

I'm not much of an angry person, more or less just fed up.

The light switch thing is correct, I've always had an irrational fear of the dark, especially since I'm horribly nearsighted.

The other assessment not so much because I'm a heterosexual woman. What does that mean about the "damaged" part?

You can get that rush from having sex in semi-public or other adventurous things. Adrenaline plus sex does not always equal to adultery.

Maybe you've only found well-read girls that happen the be amoral. I find the opposite is true, typically the most well read are shy.
>>7570300
You love devil's advocate arguments. Not to be contrarian, but because you believe every view needs to be heard, even if it is stupid.

Last I read danger was an aphrodisiac. I kind of enjoy the thrill of sneaking around behind the back of a girls partner. I've done semi public things before and it wasn't the same for me. What is your experience with semi public vs cheating? Do you prefer one or the other?

Shy girls, at least the ones I have known, always have a hidden wildness and dirtiness to them, which I like. They are just better at hiding it behind the modest outfits and friendliness.

What do you mean by public? People's definition of it changes instantly upon the activity performed.
>>
>>7570512

>Never cheated

I'm slightly disappointed. By the way how old are you? For practical reasons go and be an RN. It's good pay, and job stability from what I hear. Definitely one of the better options in terms of what degree to get. Being an author is probably everyone's dream on /lit/ but it's not practical. You have to get lucky or have connections. If you're an RN though, you can write on the side and try to get published but you won't have to worry about being homeless or having to eat stale bread and drink puddle water to survive because you'll have a good cashflow. Not to mention if you have kids you'll be able to provide for them too. Most writers are dirt poor.

Sorry for the late reply, but here it is anyway.

Summarized, it's' great. Motivation is much better, I feel more immersed and amused, my interpretation is more creative and effortless without being too far-fetched. In general, it makes most things better.

The microdose really is key though. I never go above 25μg when it's LSD, or above 75mg when it's mescaline. Beyond that, you enter the realm of inane acid/peyote philosophy, non-coherent, blabbering and idiotic. When you aim so low that you can hardly feel you're on it, that's where the magic is. More of a tweak to thought than an entire transformation of it.

It's subtle but great. Hoffman, the inventor of LSD, thought that if it weren't for the rampant abuse of it by the hippies, it might have taken the place of methylphenidate/amphetamines for those suffering from ADD, as a healthier, safer alternative. I'm inclined to agree - at microdoses, the effects are not entirely unlike a therapeutic dose of stimulants, but sans autism and obsessive tendencies, the two primary drawbacks I suffer from when I'm on stims.
