German for "over stallion," and a reference to Nietzsche's "Übermensch," /üb/ - Überhengst is about bettering yourself physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. It is about self-improvement, constructive self-reflection, and seeking advice from others. You may discuss here those personal hobbies through which you develop your creative energies, and the efforts you take to improve your talents, artistic and otherwise. And of course, this is a board for fitness and literature, as they are parts of the backbone of physical and mental wellness. This is also a board where we may discuss Western culture - history, literature, architecture, and philosophy - as when imbibed, culture improves the mind and spirit, sharpening mental faculties, and providing a greater connection to those around you and to civilizations millennia old.

As this is a self-improvement board, discussions of personal problems should be constructive. No wallowing in self-pity. We are here to become better, and while seeking company in misery may be a helpful part of the process, the process does not end there.

Enjoy!

One problem plaguing a lot of people these days, especially burgers like myself, is that many people eat out at restaurants too much instead of preparing home cooked meals. Eating out is frequently both more expensive and less healthy for you than a home cooked meal. Furthermore, many people live with a limited library of meals that they know how to prepare and don't realize the culinary possibilities that are right in front of them.

The purpose of this thread is to try to break that habit of eating out and to make cooking at home become the norm in our lives. Please share meal ideas and how to prepare them here. All meals are welcome, although preferably we should post meals that are easy to prepare so that novice cooks will not be intimidated by the prospect of preparing them for themselves. Even simple sandwiches are fair game. Sometimes that may mean cutting corners with pre-made mixes instead of preparing everything from scratch.

Remember that the goal isn't necessarily to post the most inexpensive meals or the healthiest meals, although those meals are certainly very welcome. The goal is to encourage people to dust off their kitchen appliances and flex their atrophied cooking muscles. I realize that this opens the door to culinary nightmares like /tg/'s infamous meat-bread, but so be it. Let's get cooking!

Glad it worked out! I've heard of Patagonia, but never had the chance to try it.
I must warn you on two fronts though. 1. this recipe is like an STD,….
That statement has a bit of cruel irony, having just mustered the nerve to read some of the redpill screencaps in the Raid 4chan/gay thread :/
And 2. You may find yourself saying "Those aren't real beer brats" more than a few times.

First off, this is a double-recipe, and even accounting for that there was only so much of the spice mix to go around. I recommend sprinkling it on the top of the the thighs and patting it against the meat. After, cook as directed. I went with 6 min/side because I like my chicken medium. Be sure to make sure the chicken doesn't stick to the pan, as even with sufficient oil it might. Once the chicken is finished, continue as usual, except feel free to use more butter than is called for. A double-recipe claim to serve 6, while in reality a double recipe serves 3 with about 30% of leftover.
When serving, be sure to drizzle from the pan and the chicken rest-plate

Addendum:
Oregano was substituted for Rosemary (didn't have any) and it worked well. Its not a heavy flavor, but together it makes a nice herby mix. I give it a 6.5/10; relatively easy to make (the prep is the hard part).
Also, the reddish on the rice is shepherd's salt. See above for that, it goes great on anything that used to be alive (EXCEPT chili, I've recently come to find)

So I got a girl
And I was invited to her house today, for a date
I take a taxi to arrive there, paid for by her since she's loaded, and…
Ten minutes into watching netflix one of her friends shows up
A dense broad her age (They're 23 and so am I)
They act like they haven't seen each other in years, in the girly "I saw you yesterday and neither of us are feeling this lie but society says we must dance and screech" way
My girl invites new girl in
She comes in and I'm reclining on her sofa, but I decide to sit up and smile inoffensively instead.
"Hi"
"Hi"
New girl asks my girl if she wants to go to the bar
My girl says yes
I get up and start to follow her
My girl asks me if I'll be fine on my own, and leaves before I say anything, slamming the door in my face
I am left alone in her house, nobody around.

Girl time while on a date by leaving the date alone for however long?
That's odd.
Could be she doesn't want you to bang her friend?
It could be a shit test.
Could be she doesn't get social situations. I doubt that, but you never know.
I don't know that is weird. You might get an explanation later… maybe.
>Ten minutes into watching netflix one of her friends shows up
Surprise social visit, or really bad planning.

But this Implying that she was positive.

And this could mean she is interested. That any kind of loyalty? never happened before.

Hey Üb, lets read together shall we?
I propose this, we all vote for a book every month and we all read it together then we discuss its contents here, to ensure we are on the same page we should read a certain number of pages every day.

Lets say, a 200 pages book in a 25 days month would make up for 200/25= 8 pages a day. (i know these are really few pages but its just to ensure we can all spare some time to read it)

So, wanna do it? Just post a book below so we can make a strawpool!
To start with something im sure we all are familiar with, i will add Mein Kampf to the list, post any books you would like to go to the strawpool below!

Welcome to yet another iteration of reading with hitler. Because when you read alone, you read with hitler

And now, we keep on talking about marriage for a while longer:
>It is clear that the institution of marriage must be judged by the manner in which its allotted function is fulfilled. Therefore early marriages should be the rule, because thus the young couple will still have that pristine force which is the fountain head of a healthy posterity with unimpaired powers of resistance. Of course early marriages cannot be made the rule unless a whole series of social measures are first undertaken without which early marriages cannot be even thought of. In other words, a solution of this question, which seems a small problem in itself, cannot be brought about without adopting radical measures to alter the social background. The importance of such measures ought to be studied and properly estimated, especially at a time when the so-called 'social' Republic has shown itself unable to solve the housing problem and thus has made it impossible for innumerable couples to get married. That sort of policy prepares the way for the further advance of prostitution.

>Secondly, a whole series of false notions must be eradicated from our system of bringing up and educating children--things which hitherto no one seems to have worried about. In our present educational system a balance will have to be established, first and foremost, between mental instruction and physical training.

>What is known as GYMNASIUM (Grammar School) to-day is a positive insult to the Greek institution. Our system of education entirely loses sight of the fact that in the long run a healthy mind can exist only in a healthy body. This statement, with few exceptions, applies particularly to the broad masses of the nation.
Some comments on /fitlit/

>The extravagant emphasis laid on purely intellectual education and the consequent neglect of physical training must necessarily lead to sexual thoughts in early youth. Those boys whose constitutions have been trained and hardened by sports and gymnastics are less prone to sexual indulgence than those stay-at-homes who have been fed exclusively with mental pabulum. Sound methods of education cannot, however, afford to disregard this, and we must not forget that the expectations o

Not a lot of quotes for today, we get a lot to read on the history of germany and it's navy, bad decitions and some good aspects and some quotes i will post here, for the full text remember to read it up in the book!

>Our era is entirely preoccupied with little things which are to no purpose, or rather it is entirely preoccupied in the service of money. Therefore it is not to be wondered at if, with the worship of such an idol, the sense of heroism should entirely disappear. But the present is only reaping what the past has sown.


>The great masses of a nation are not composed of philosophers. For the masses of the people, especially faith is absolutely the only basis of a moral outlook on life. The various substitutes that have been offered have not shown any results that might warrant us in thinking that they might usefully replace the existing denominations.

>There may be a few hundreds of thousands of superior men who can live wisely and intelligently without depending on the general standards that prevail in everyday life, but the millions of others cannot do so.
About religion and morality, he has a good point on average people not being philosophers for the "does morality depends on religion" question

>Now the place which general custom fills in everyday life corresponds to that of general laws in the State and dogma in religion.

>It is only through dogma that it is given a precise and concrete form without which it could not become a living faith. Otherwise the spiritual idea would never become anything more than a mere metaphysical concept, or rather a philosophical opinion.
>Accordingly the attack against dogma is comparable to an attack against the general laws on which the State is founded. And so this attack would finally lead to complete political anarchy if it were successful, just as the attack on religion would lead to a worthless religious nihilism.

What are the best/most essential skills everyone should have for life/survival/employment? Obvious things like first aid/cpr, firearm use, and being able to fix adn repair things around the house come to mind, but is it worthwhile for the average person to get a HAM radio license, learn to do things like soldering and welding, or learn more than one language?

what do anons here know how to do? what are you learning? what would you recommend others learn to be able to do?

I cant give you an exact book on agriculture but i'm sure you can find some basics around, talking to people that work in farms Is also a great way to learn.

I don't think there is a good answer to this question or at least not a short one.
Basically you need to learn everything. But there are two main categories: shit hits the fan and steady going
In shit-hits-the-fan-scenarios you need to know how to defend yourself, to get clean water, to get food and to tend your wounds. Since humans are the biggest dangers to you you should learn learn about them (biology, how they act in certain situations (history, anthropology…), what drives them and what their priorities are (psychology) and all that other stuff)

Then in stable situations you should know how to keep your health as high as good as possible and to improve your situation. I think everyone should have a craft, a science, an art and a sport.
You will be usefull, know about nature and humans and be a and also are into social. Doesn't matter really which ones you start with as you will always build up your bases and expand into different shit. Like when you know how to work with wood you basically know how to work with iron and picking up welding takes like a day for the essentials (mastery takes a life in any endevour) and you will always learn things that carry over to other stuff. Even if the craft is not your main source of income you can use that to fix stuff or improve stuff or just make a few bucks plus it is something to fall back to if times get tough.
Basically learn to be at top performance and learn to learn.
also learn a different language because it is not just a different language but a different way to look at the world, a different culture and it opens up a whole ocean of new information you would have rudimentary access to even you were lucky

I have been thinking about identity latetly. It seems like society wants to transform you into a bot with labels like teacher-plays chess-hobby-gardening or salesman-plays-soccer-hobby-cook and it might make some things easier but it also feels like a vice and reduces you to a cog in the system. The worst part is that all that matters are the labels and people will take a shitty professionel over a great amateur. It also steers away from becoming a more rounded individual that increases his skill-set and reduces his flaws while increasing his strength.

I might be a little late on this, but remember, from the coldest ashes rises the pheonix which burns brightest. Don't waste time worrying about what could have been, spend time thinking about where things can go from here and what it will take to get you there. I don't know you, and I don't know your situation; but when I was at my lowest even getting out of bed felt like a hurculean task. Start small. Resolve to go for a walk a few times a week, or to write a funny scene, or even to just clean your place. The smallest thing can really make a world of difference.

Hang in there anon. Don't worry about the past, and don't worry about tomorrow. The road you are traveling might be rough but it is not a straight road to the bleak future you see ahead. There will always be forks in the road that can take you to places you didn't know you wanted to go to. Small coincidences can change your outlook on the future 180 degrees in a short while and lead you to a place you feel happy about. Just because it is bleak now don't mean the future has to be. I hope you find happiness and love, even the joy of playing with a pet can do wonders.
I don't think your ancestors view you as a failure, you did not wish for the future that has become, you are among the few who actually wants to honor them.

I would be laughing similarly to >>1854 but I'm too sad to laugh lately. I'm at 21 and have been feeling the same frustration since I moved out of my parents' house ten months ago. I told myself I would only be seeking rent for one year and then use the money I saved to make a down payment on a shitty shack in Fresno, but not only will it not be so soon, I am unemployed and in debt. I have no money, no job, and nobody's offered to take me save for two employers who I failed to live up to on interview day.

But it's not the end. As much as I would like for it to end, it will continue for a long time. Nothing is irreversible, and no matter how hard you want to just lie down and die, you know it's not going to happen that way. When it matters most, you're going to be animated and push yourself in the last moments. Whether it be when you become homeless, or when you're on your last scrap of food, you will fight for the chance to live. It's in your blood to fight, and no amount of depression and Jewish repression will kill that part of you.

Your ancestors look down with confusion and frustration, no doubt, but it is not solely you who they are frustrated at. It's their descendants who failed to raise their progeny properly, and it's the boomers who inherited great wealth and squandered all of it, leaving a generation of untrained, confused children to pick up the mess. We can all relate, I'm sure. At least the zoomers and millennials among us.

I've started couch to 5K and am applying at some mom and pops and service positions that I know are hiring. I used up the last scrap of my savings for glasses so I can get trained for a trucking job if they take me.

If you ever want to talk, I'll be in this thread, and if you need a private place to vent or talk things out, I'll be at http://steamcommunity.com/id/flutterbutterstutter .

Now, now /ub/ you are practicing your arguing skills and critical thinking, are you not?
I propose this thread to practice such skills, let us start with some simple lessons:
1- Do not get emotionally involved when arguing.
2- Do not purposely commit fallacies
3- Fallacies are there to help, not to shield
4- Fallacy-fallacy is a thing, watch out for that
5- Always back up your arguments with facts
6- Learn to shallow your pride, you can't win every argument, it is preferable to admit defeat than making a fool out of yourself.

Now with that in mind, get into any 3+1chan or any other place and argue with someone, post screencap here and i'll judge your performance.
Remember guys, practice is the key for success.

You can also challenge me to an argument if you so feel like it, just post something in this thread we can argue about

Nice thread OP, you got the whole picture on how to deal with the basics of an argument.

I would still like to add that this is only truly effective in a planned debate. Average normies are better off being fed propaganda, not rational case by case arguments.

So I got a question over which I have been thinking a bit. You know these guys who are really good at speaking casually? I would call it verbal agility. How to become like that?

I'll give you an example:
A person asks "if I push your head underwater, what do you say?"
Me: uhhh? (At this point I am thinking of ways to interpret the question and different answers in different scenarios)
Good Talker: "blggh blghh blghh *gulp*"

I need to become more verbal.

So, /ub/ I have an idea to increase thread activity. Post here every time you think you've done something that improved your overall well-being. No IDs so no pressure, just include what you did, how long you did it, and how it helped you if it's a bit abstract. That is all, and happy posting.

Have slowly but surely whittled away at my more useless groceries for the sake of starting over on my diet. Had two mugs of tea and one piece of gum and it seems like I will be able to ration things out well throughout the day when my sleep gets fixed.

I haven't visited here in a long time. If you know who I am, then no need to bother with a recap on my life story. If not, it doesn't matter either way.

I'm sending in my two weeks' notice at my job. Too little training for my current position, too heavy a workload, nowhere near enough pay, only barely enough hours to make my living. I am getting a phone set up in the morning, and when it's all ready I'll be sending my applications to anywhere that'll take me.

Let's talk career paths, jobs, and finances. I don't believe /ub/'s ever talked at length about this topic, and perhaps my own situation could be made into a case study to help others in my shoes.

I do not wish to spend money on college or university, although I may go for a trade school education if need be. I have only a year's experience in grocery work, and very little saved up. I have a housing situation that I cannot escape until next July, with a somewhat steep rent. Preferred jobs would be productive labor - but in the literal sense of making something tangible. Things like construction, HVAC, plumbing, carpentry, smithing, welding. Area is mostly urban, no agricultural work near where I live. How would I go about getting most of these jobs?

File unrelated. Although related to my mood.

Hey man keep your chin up. As far as testing for those driving jobs, in the oil fields they usually have a trainer's truck equivalent to what you normally drive for that line of work that you will go testing with. So you will go take the test in the company truck the driving portion of the test is proctored at the DMV. Alternatively they might choose to send you to a local community college for CDL training. That's what my outfit did after I got past my probationary period, back in the day.
If you wanted to skip the oil fields and go straight to driving they have CDL training courses at many community colleges usually cost about five grand and take 6-8 weeks, but the oil field specific schools can be as short as three weeks. There is a good handful of over-the-road trucking companies that will pay you to go to school as long as you commit to driving for them for a year. The pay for those guys can suck but it's better than what you're going to get at the pizza place. Swift, Warner, CR England, Knight transport etc have those kinds of programs. In those cases you will be testing in the schools truck when testing time comes.

Any which way you go when you take your knowledge and written test when you apply for your CDL learner's permit try to study up and get the extra testing for your tanker. Hazmat has to come later after you have the CDL, because the hazmat requires a thorough background check and fingerprints which requires an existing CDL. But the tanker is your starting point whether you're hauling milk water cement powder anything that goes into a tank pressurized or dry.

That's the problem for me. It doesn't matter what I say, or what I do. If I don't have prior experience, they won't hire me. They probably don't even check my goddamn resume if I don't write down prior experience, no matter how simple the job is.

I found a place in the local Reader that was advertising for construction work. Only stated requirement was a valid driver's license and English speaking ability. I got turned away because they said I needed training. But the advertisement said that they were willing and able to train.

I watched a series of tutorials on Fruity Loops, but now I'm downloading Mixcraft 7. Please teach me the methods you use to make music.
What makes Fruity Loops and Ableton Meme Tier? To me, Fruity Loops seems pretty good. It's got midi, it's got some knob-turning shit I've got no idea how to use, and it's got a VST option that lets me use the VSTs of old games. Sorry if that's super-basic shit every other program has and I look like a faggot right now.

I've been wanting to learn how to draw for a long time, but have never gotten around to it because I simply do not know where to start. On a scale of 1-10 my skill level is basically a 1. I can draw basic shapes, that is about it. I don't have any hobbies right now other than gaming and working out, and I would like to pick something else up.

I would preferably like to learn how to draw on a computer, most of the really nice art I see seems to be done that way now a days. As I stated earlier, my skill level is basically 1. I can draw basic circles and have used MS paint a few times, and have never touch any editing programs.

I have been wanting to do this for forever, but have been held back because I just have no idea how to start, or what even I should be doing for practice. Right now would be a great time for me to do this because I am currently somewhat incapacitated with some medical issues. Any tips/resources would be greatly appreciated.

The very first word of advice I can give you is too just keep drawing! Practice is the key.
Don't stop; just keep trying and experimenting over and over, regardless of how shitty you may be. Try new things, and try them dozens of times. Experiment with concepts. Attempt to copy styles you admire once you get a hang of the basics.
Even little thumb sketches are progress. Make a habit out of doodling for fun. Carry a sketchbook as a hobby if you prefer. If you practice any skill enough times, you're bound to get half-decent at it.
And don't ever get discouraged just because you're bad at it. If you suck, that just means you're not practicing enough. Don't quit because your first thought after scribbling for 10 mintues is 'I'm not any good at this'.

i can teach you howto draw like a boss!
first of all, you need no skill and you need to forget what everyone else says like "when you draw often you get better!" because its wrong.

soooo here ==>
first of all, your lines have to be nice!
next, use some scissor and build a image out of images.
here a leg, here a arm, its way more easy to move the parts into fiting as everything else!
than, you have to draw it and cut it out from youre template.
done!

…ok, you can make more. light and shadows as example, or some weather effects.
you need only a brain for it because these stuffs are simple as fuck, but i can give u a tip. copy the image, make it dark and erase some parts - these makes awesome light!
i also copy the image for the shadows on the background. just a bit bend and it fits perfect.

>Look with your eyes, not with your mind
That is the beginning of being a good artist. Your mind is great at handling concepts, but terrible at fine details, and if you base your drawings off of what you think you see, it will always look off. Masters and first-timers draw without references.
It takes getting used to, but practice makes perfect, and this applies to all artistic disciplines as well. Always use the relevant sense to pick apart what you want to recreate, instead of feeling your way through it in your mind's eye.

I feel like my anger is starting to hurt me instead of motivate me. Keep finding myself repeating those "Fucking leftists fucking jews grrrrrr fucking bastards" thoughts around in my head instead of thinking about anything worthwhile like how to improve myself or my indie dev career. One friend recommended guided meditation but I failed at it, I can't bring myself to relax if I can still hear someone else's voice while trying to relax.
Plus I'm still too unfit and untrained to successfully snap so I can't snap yet.

No like, patriotism is pride in your nation, it's history, it's people and everything, now what you described is white supremacy that Is not about the nation but the people, and only people of that race which will end up bringing some questions in the future most likely.
It Is good to be proud of your race and give it a priority, but dont Let your cause be only that.
>just a thought
Yeah, that would be ideal, to show off strenght without messing up the people.
Another way would be to use mainstream politics, but considering the media, it would be impossible since the narrative will be unlawful to the truth.

Farm animals in Equestria can speak. Yet they're treated like animals anyway, herded like cattle and kept on farms. Are they like niggers, able to speak but not able to think, or are they just enslaved like niggers should be?

I have a theory.
So the chins have a certain nature to them (like the chaotic nature and the navigation) that basically makes these sites inaccessible to anyone with like IQ 90 or lower, which means that these sites tend towards the higher IQ spectrum.
The problem is that guys that often have the tendency to become lopsided. Like IQ is everything and you can solve everything with your intellect alone, but that is not the case. Getting out there, seeing, learning, fresh air and physical work is something people like that often lack.
Any thoughts on my theory?

Should of included this in my previous post- Electrical or plumbing if you have the body to do it. I would go back in the trades but have bad arthritis.

With one of the above skills you have freedom of mobility and can start a business in many less saturated markets, and basically write your own ticket.
