No. I used to travel, play music, have friends, sneak around at night. I got more and more depressed as I got older and my friends all settled down, some of them had kids. Everyone either moved away or is too busy to hang out. People who I have never actually offended or angered stopped having time for me because it depresses them to be around me. The health system here is rubbish, I can't get medical help so I just drink.

An old website I used to help run wants me back as a volunteer (it's all volunteer, no ads or anything either). I don't even want to but I can't think of a valid reason to say no because I still use the site and they need help, plus they're my very nearly my only real friends. If they ask again, I'll sign up.

My other friend is imaginary. We hang out, watch movies, sleep next to each other.

I do, but it's mostly limited to family and co-workers. A big hurdle for me is using things like Facebook, but I made a pretty big step by signing up for some dating sites. I'm not really budging from the anti-Facebook thing, not because of privacy anymore but because that shit is for old people now.

Ever since I left 8chan, that killed like 80% of my Internet usage. It's to the point now that I mostly hop on my desktop to download comics to transfer on my tablet, check my bank account, check Lainchan threads, shop online/browse my usual online stores for anything useful and be done in the course of 30-45 minutes, if that. Fuck, my tablet and smartphone does most of that too.

I'm not a NEET, but I'm not going to sit here and call you a loser. To be fair, you could be doing more with your life than that but that's literally every person on the planet. I kinda hate that I'm not doing as much as I could mostly due to work and some poor life choices.

Really, I'd only call someone a loser if they are spending their valuable time being an asshole and it turns out they are someone who doesn't have a career, no real workforce skills, no social life, etc. To shit on someone who is perfectly happy with life or at least trying to improve it is the mark of someone who is a shitty person. And I have very little patience for those kinds of people.

You aren't a loser if you don't feel like it.

In my experience (in a STEM major), the lectures are typically distilled down to showing only the exam-relevant material, while the textbook and the course's other study materials are always crammed full of filler.

And sometimes the textbook filler is indistinguishable from the relevant concepts without the context of the lecture (or some of that filler is the exam material for a class at a different school).

I agree that this system is mostly bullshit, but I have nothing better to do with my time than sit in a lecture, anyway.

Ya, but your performance is soley dependent on how well you conditioned yourself to complete and think about problem types and what info you had. I didn't even read the text, I'd just go right into problems.

I also had profs whose only examples were either right from the book or online. If you live on campus, sure, but my commute was an hour. I either spend those 3hrs naked, eating cereal and amassing fetish porn or in transportation and listening to nerds try to court eachother and be the cool cat they weren't in highschool.

When you perform any task, you do something to your NEURAL PATHWAYS that causes you to be able to perform it with more automaticity and ease over future iterations. This applies for the 40-step math intensive problem archtypes you see in engineering or science. The difference in accuracy and speed in thinking that doing a few problems before a test gives you is OUTRAGEOUS.

You can also condition your perception and lateral thinking abilities. If you internally train your mind to recognize problems by type, you'll be able to get all the relevent information and know strategically what to do in 1/10th of the time it would take anyone else. That kind of time is valuable in any engineering exam. Problems are usually modular and challenge gets implemented in a predictable way. By looking at text solutions to harder problems, you'll get a better sense of the mathematical processes and "gotchas" that are in circulation. That usually forms the basis of my intuition in an exam.

Years of pathological procrastination have forced me to become a metacognition machine. I've gone through courses in cumulatively under 5 hours because I'm that much of an irresponsible shit.

He never said that the humanities themselves are worthless. But getting a degree in them is objectively a waste of your time and money.

We live in the information age. You can learn anything you would get out of your humanities courses yourself, and you can build a portfolio in the arts without wasting 4 years and $100k to sit in classes.

The same logic applies to STEM to an extent, but most STEM fields have resource requirements or safety concerns that make them require standardized credentials to practice in the real world. The university is a place to get those credentials.

This was not suggested by anyone, anywhere in this thread. If you really are as that commented suggested "sitting on your ass all day" and are still skinny, there is definitely something wrong with your body and your diet. Popping vitamins doesn't solve the problem alone. There needs to be food in your stomach or you piss them out.

You want to at least read the post I replied to next time before saying it's not in the whole thread?
Also it wasn't aimed at me.

Would you like to explain to me how a diet is bad when you don't get fat? And I never said anything about popping vitamins, you just assumed that. My guess is that you yourself don't know how to eat well, or you'd know that you can get everything you need without very many calories. You two seem to think that there's only one universal amount of energy to consume for everybody, there's not. The healthy amount is however much you use (given that you're not obese or megaskelly). If you get more than you use, you put on weight and vice versa.

  No.6010

>>6009
You said "eating more than you need". Your body isn't a car that uses a certain amount of fuel per mile or something and you can't just conserve calories by being lazy; it just means you aren't eating enough.

>Would you like to explain to me how a diet is bad when you don't get fat?

Malnutrition? being underweight? Just because obesity is so common doesn't mean it's the only problem you can develop.

The funny thing is that it actually is. I'll restate this since you've failed to read once again; If you eat more energy than you use, you put on weight. That means if you use less, you need to eat less to maintain the same weight.

>Malnutrition

I told you it wasn't an issue, I keep track of what's in everything I eat and I get more than I need of everything, it's easy enough. I even each a bunch of calorie dense foods and protein just to get the calorie level up to my maintenance. I can tell you've never eaten healthy because you just assume that everyone who does is on pills, while also failing to understand the second law of thermodynamics.

>If you really are as that commented suggested "sitting on your ass all day" and are still skinny, there is definitely something wrong with your body and your diet.
Alright let's take this from the top. Each action the body takes, whether that action is voluntary movement or bodily function, requires an amount of energy. This energy is taken from food or drink, and in the absence of food or drink, it is taken from stored energy in the body. Excess sustenance will result in the storing of this energy as tissue. If one consumes the necessary energy required to match the rate at which it is used, then the system is balanced and the body weight will stay the same, since no energy will need to be taken or stored as tissue. If you literally sit and have no voluntary movement, the amount of energy required to maintain body weight will be related to your metabolic rate. Therefore, it is very possible to maintain a low weight with simple measurement of calorie intake and a knowledge of your own metabolic rate. You do, however, still need vitamins, which I'll explain later.

>There needs to be food in your stomach or you piss [vitamins] out.

That isn't true all of the time. Vitamins are absorbed into the bloodstream when they are dissolved in the stomach and digested. The bioavailability of certain vitamins is very high on an empty stomach. Some vitamins which have poor bioavailability on their own can be taken with a surprisingly small amount of food with to achieve sufficient absorption. It is unlikely that you would need to take multiple vitamins which require a large amount of food in the stomach to be digested properly.


Besides the jargon, I'll give you a real-world example of people who eat nutritiously, yet who rarely are active and spend most of their time sitting/laying down, and don't gain weight- people who are hooked up to parenteral nutrition, and also people who are fed through a tube. These people receive the exact amount of vitamins and nutrients required to maintain their bodies. Their diet is, objectively, very healthy. Also, back when Soylent (the food substitute) required you to mix all the ingredients together yourself, you could create a food which was low in calories yet had all of your daily vitamin and mineral content required. Tell me again how sitting in front of a computer all day results in getting fat (and unhealthy)?

Just like >>6011 said,
>I keep track of what's in everything I eat and I get more than I need of everything, it's easy enough.

What life? To do anything IRL you need to get a job somewhere so you can make a pittance while someone above you who got their position through nepotism makes a killing, just so you can pay off your rent, sit in your apartment, and not know what to do with yourself. You can't live without working, but unless you luck out you will spend your life working to live, the entire time at risk of being laid off so the higher ups can save money and funnel more of it into their bank accounts. Everything you do in real life is just a reminder of that, because everything costs money, and the only way you're getting that money is by earning those pittances from jobs no person really wants to work, so you can buy things you don't need that were designed to break so you'd have to buy another one to replace it.
At least on the net you can go where you want, when you want, with nothing to hinder your ability to express yourself as a person and chase what you want to chase. Oh wait, that's not true, because the internet became stale and homogenized when all the corporations came in rubbing their greasy palms turning the entire system into yet another tool to spy on the poor and help the rich print money to spend on material things just so they can wallow in the knowledge that their bank accounts have more currency with imaginary value than most humans to ever walk this planet.

They say that if you can't make somebody else understand an idea, then you don't really understand it yourself.

That being said, you can't just present an idea in one lecture and expect everybody to understand it immediately. Ideas (I'm thinking about philosophy, which is something of a special case) usually need to be developed to really understand the inner workings. You might need real world analogies, examples, exercises. Meat needs practice before it becomes good at something.

I've got a not-so-soykaf life. Still live at home, wageslave in a bit stressful but actually okay job, go boozing & clubbing with a friend (I live in a capital city in Europe, btw.) on weekends. Hell, yeah.

None of my friends ever want to hang out, besides maybe one that will rarely like to play a bit of Basketball outside.

Other then that I only really hang out at the park or anything if I am gonna smoke Weed or something.

I don't go over to friends homes, I don't party, I don't like having friends over (Besides my Cousin I guess) I don't talk to girls (Just a couple and that is because they are my friends)
I rarely hang out with as many people as I used to at School, I have a lot of *friends* but they aren't people I hang with or talk to much.

I have been spending most of my free time on the computer.

I have been realizing how soykaf and untrustworthy a lot of people are.

I can't wait until I can leave Miami and go somewhere I would enjoy more.
I want to go hiking, fishing, hunting, camping, exploring, and etc.

I personally do 200 Hindu squats, 40 Hindu jumpers, 30 jumping lunges, 20 seconds of mountain climbers, 10 seconds of grasshoppers, some crisscross thing with my legs I don't know what it's called with deep breathing throughout. I also do as many pushups as possible on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

I plan to eventually move to 5 reps of 100 Hindu squats and then everything else I mentioned every day eventually.

Look up Matt Furey he has a great workout video and it includes all the things I mentioned. Leg and Lung is what I do now but eventually I'd like to move to the upper-body workout too.

I have a normal life. I attended university and have friends, as well am generally well liked by my peers. I have very few people that are truly my friends. The rest of the people I know I see the flaws in, and I feel hatred for. In my eyes, for most people I know within my life I only see their motivations and their negative traits. I do not relate to most of society and realize that I am different, an outcast of sorts. But somehow, I am an outcast that has managed to slip between the cracks and exist in the limelight.

Azusa is so cute it makes me feel weird things.

On topic, I've been asking myself that a lot lately, maybe its because the only interaction I had on dailybasis was work and uni, now that I've graduated and moved onto home office, I take days without properly taking with people.

Sometimes I wish I could do more with life than just work and play games, I wish I had some other hobby, or even the will to do some, since there are others I could do indoors.

I've got very few hobbies as well it feels kinda weird some times. But then I just drown my self in my game and other hobbies to forget about it.
