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!

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!

>One thing stood out clearly before my eyes: It was the sudden changes from work to idleness and vice versa; so that the constant fluctuations thus caused by earnings and expenditure finally destroyed the 'sense of thrift for many people and also the habit of regulating expenditure in an intelligent way.
In this whole paragraph hitler proceeds to explain how periods of work mixed with periods of hunger has an impact on the worker's psychology, affecting mostly the worker's hability to spend money cautiously:
> the deprivations which the unemployed worker has to endure must be compensated for psychologically by a persistent mental mirage in which he imagines himself eating heartily once again.
>This leads to confusion in the little weekly housekeeping budget, because the expenditure is not rationally planned.
>(…)the earnings will last perhaps for five days instead of seven(…)as the habit recurs, the earnings will last scarcely for a day; and finally they will disappear in one night of feasting.
He proceeds to set an example in which the worker has a family, how such lifestyle conditions children to live in such a way, thus repeating the cycle.
>I have had actual experience of all this in hundreds of cases. At first I was disgusted and indignant; but later on I came to recognize the whole tragedy of their misfortune and to understand the profound causes of it. They were the unhappy victims of evil circumstances.
>those who emerged from all this misfortune and misery, from this filth and outward degradation, were not human beings as such but rather lamentable results of lamentable laws.

Let's talk gommunism
>It is impossible to say when I might have started to make a thorough study of the doctrine and characteristics of Marxism were it not for the fact that I then literally ran head foremost into the problem.

>What I knew of Social Democracy in my youth was precious little and that little was for the most part wrong.

>All of a sudden I was brought face to face with the products of their teaching and what they called their WELTANSCHAUUNG. In this way a few months sufficed for me to learn something which under other circumstances might have necessitated decades of study--namely, that under the cloak of social virtue and love of one's neighbour a veritable pestilence was spreading abroad and that if this pestilence be not stamped out of the world without delay it may eventually succeed in exterminating the human race.

>But all that I heard had the effect of arousing the strongest antagonism in me. Everything was disparaged--the nation, because it was held to be an invention of the 'capitalist' class (how often I had to listen to that phrase!); the Fatherland, because it was held to be an instrument in the hands of the bourgeoisie for the exploitation of' the working masses; the authority of the law, because that was a means of holding down the proletariat; religion, as a means of doping the people, so as to exploit them afterwards; morality, as a badge of stupid and sheepish docility.

First off, I want to say thank you /ub/ for all the encouragement you gave me in my last post. I'd link that shit but I'm a newfag. It was Sixth Sense. I've gotten better I'm only fapping once every 3 days instead of twice every day. I feel like a new man! So thanks guys!

But on the more pressing matters, I had a small fling with this chubby girl nothing serious I've never had sex with her anything. I like her but I like her as a friend. Nothing more. I've been wanting to work up the courage to try and find an actual girlfriend for myself, the very least make a new friend. When I was at the store, there was this girl I was smoking a cigarette and she recognized me from high school. She told me that when she first moved down here I had talked with her kind of helped her open up and get to know people and she thanked me for it. I was kind of embarrassed and caught on the spot and general autism kicked in cuz I couldn't remember her and I'm not good with talking with people especially girls. The more I thought about it, I'd like to get to know her. I don't know if she has a boyfriend girlfriend or whatever the fuck people have nowadays. I just know I kind of have a crush on the girl and wanted to know if any of you could you know help me again?

I've started taking sleep seriously and have actively began trying to get 8 hours of sleep per night while waking up at 7-8AMish, rather than staying up reading/gaming/watching anime until 2-4AM then sleeping until 11AM or later.
But I feel like getting more sleep isn't making a difference and losing that time sleeping is hurting my efficiency.
Will getting 8 hours of sleep per night actually benefit me and my life?
How damaging is it to skip the occasional night of sleep and just stay awake for 48ish hours before going to sleep the next night?
Through naps and sleeping in late the next day, is it possible to "Catch up" on sleep you missed earlier on?
Would skipping sleep every one designated day per week fuck me up or give my body time to recover from that sleepless night and get ready for the next one?

Short, and sweet.
Consistent sleep is better.
Unless you can sleep whenever you feel like it all the time. This is the most superior choice, but if you need to be anywhere by a certain time this won't work.

Go to bed at the same time everyday, wake up around the same time.

Longer times for sleep does have an impact, but has decreasing returns. Sometimes making you feel worse.

Naps… are sorta different.

But you can't catch up on sleep.

So sleeping wrong doesn't always impact the day you missed it, but it tends to impact the day after.

Resuming habitual sleep patterns is good for recovering from lost sleep.

Understood. Will resume usual consistent sleep schedule.

Carl Jung for psychology.
For basics on the subject Jordan Peterson isn't a bad place to start, but not a place to wallow in.

I personally enjoy the Occult due to it's psychological aspects, and (my perception of) the real world impacts. You can also rewrite your personality, or induce yourself to be nearly catatonic. It can be dangerous.

I'm not denying the effectiveness of hypnosis and conditioningotherwise why would the government use it but I must caution you on the occult and esotericism in general. Because it involves taking the illogical and temporarily substituting it in place of your own logic, it's easy to fall down a number of dark paths, any of which could lead to the cultish and degenerate behavior of the (((elites))).

I recommend instead to pursue its opposite, exotericism, which is the pursuance of absolute truth and universal wisdom. It's possible, if you try, to find wisdom and lessons ("redpills") in everything and as life involves the accumulation of knowledge you can become strongly grounded in reality.

Body and facial language analysis is a most useful and under-represented/reported facet of human behavior. The show "Lie To Me" based on the work of Paul Ekman brought this topic a little bit of traction, but I've recently stumbled across a Youtube channel which very deliberately and surgically analyzes body language and facial cues in a manner that is relatively easy to interpret, learn, and develop an understanding of.
>inb4 e-celeb
This channel does not apparently feature the orator in any way that I've seen, the videos focus solely on various subjects both mainstream and not, and desu serves as a useful resource for anons wishing to learn more about the subject.
I'm sharing it on /ub/ cuz I feel that the subject in general deserves more notice for its viability, as well as to (hopefully) provide an entertaining venue for anons to become maybe a bit more savvy.
The channel is called Bombard's Body Language: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXG8i4PE6-mxh52nFKwMkcg/featured

This thread is therefore geared toward the discussion of body and facial language interpretation, encouraging a sharing of resources to develop an individual's ability to perceive beyond simply 'what people say'.

I hope you like it. There are several analyses of Hillary Clinton which are quite revealing, assuming anons aren't aware of her sociopathic nature, and that's just one example.
Sociopaths in particular are some of the most useful case studies for body language, as can have the greatest potential for deliberate and masked (as much as possible, often training themselves) duplicity. It is my experience and opinion that identifying sociopaths is an important skill in navigating and progressing through life and society.

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.

I still remember when I was job hunting before my journey toward my current position at Stater Bros, there was a job center in Oceanside I went to. Don't recall the town libraries, west nor east, having a job center built into it. That being said, I do like the idea of a trucking job. Don't you need your own truck to test for a license for that kind of delivery job though? I've heard trucking is a good job for diaperfags like me, but never did much research into it. But I know Hollandia Dairy has openings for drivers right now.

Generally, this part of San Marcos is a great job sphere for learning or getting my foot in the door with a trade-centric job. I've had a chat with the lead cook at the pizza place about quitting at the Stater Bros. bakery, but still needing to get my food handling permit. He seems supportive of that, so that sounds great for a starter.

First day off since I got promoted to this position I'm quitting from. Gonna do all sorts of preparation in the meantime, do some penny counting to see if I can pay my rent without taking out a loan or a few bucks shaved from the last of my educational IRA…that's gonna be the hard part of working at just about any place. Unless my severance at my current workplace is hefty enough to compensate.

….I'm overthinking and over-stressing on this, aren't I. Pic related, kill me.

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.

I’m a fat fuck. Not obese, but certainly overweight and underdeveloped. Have been for a couple of years now. I’ve got about three and a half months until I go off to university, and for reasons I can’t explain, a couple days ago I stopped not caring, and felt this burn to at least be headed in the right direction by time I’m out on my own.

I live in the middle of nowhere, no gyms around.

I’m finally ready to actually work to improve, but don’t know where to start. Any general tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Fuck anons, heavy cream is what they make whipped cream out of. If you whip it too much, you make butter. It's a bunch of fat with a little protein but very little sugar. It's not code for anything.

The question was:
>Would replacing yoghurt with Rice Pudding be healthier?

And the answer is fuck no. And I don't eat fat-free yogurt. It's like asking this question:
>Would replacing yogurt with a stick of butter be healthier?

No. No it would not be healthier. If you can get some low sugar yogurt, or make your own, it's about as healthy as you can get aside from a salad with some meat on top.

What are some legal designer steroids or good alternatives to steroids? And where can I find them?

SARMS (ostarine and LGD) are an option, but I think they might be illegal now in the US. You would have to check if the bill passed, they were talking about it in congress. SARMS aren't terribly effective anyway and tank your natural T, so you feel like shit after a few weeks. They are also more expensive than gear.

Uh, good to know your history anon. The germans would use meth for their solders, and if steroids were available at the time, you better believe they would have used them. Steroids are for your betterment, though, like anything good, they can be used to excess and become your downfall.

Do they make your balls shrink? (not op)

That really depends on where you are now. Before considering injecting, you need to get your testosterone tested. From there, you have a baseline.

My baseline was low. Doc put me on clomid. Balls grew quite a bit. Clomid stopped working after two years. Went on TRT, balls did shrink, but I wouldn't say it's noticeable except to me. If you want to retain fertility (I'm done having kids) you need to be on a low dose of HCG.

I haven't gone super high level, but just going from bottom of range to top of range is life changing. Aside from the physical, the confidence boost is incredible. I solve problems now effortlessly. A problem comes up, I think about it, the answer becomes clear, I take action, done.

Sorry anon, I completely forgot about it. Though, I'm thinking that Thursday would be a better night to run this stream. The whole point to doing it on monday is to try and start the week off with uplifting, motivational, philosophical, and otherwise emergent media, but Mondays have become my busiest days, followed closely by Tuesdays.

I don't believe that I have solely chanced upon this 'theory' by any clear distinction to originality.
But I feel that I am the first to try and relate the premise in a way that is attainable for the laymen of Man to get the gist.

Observations and philosophical queries. The story and measurements are alluding to this.
The nature of being, of man, and of existence is a all permeating question.
They say that the theory of Atoms were 'know' pre roman era. That the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar,
supposedly is calculated from the procession of the milkyway.
Sounds incredible. That Observers without optic lenses could measure these macro and micro poles.
Atomic theory I think was from pure deduction.

Obvious mechanisms that must exist to explain substances. How does water flow, and that the soft compresses into itself?
The procession of a galaxy is harder to attain, as how can a single generation witness the
deviation of galactic body's and structures in a single lifetime, let alone without a stable platform with a telescopic sights to survey such a thing?

The same reason we honor the dead, both our fathers and mothers.

Humor is a highly valued trait that I hardly posess at all.
It has been argued that it is some sort of socially accepted form of aggression and that it has to do with suprise and shock in some sense. How to become funny?

Take what I say with a grain of salt.
Learn psychology. All the human behaviours, motivations, and thought process.

>Here is a quick start guide.

Watch comedy, all the funny things all the time. From ages past. The classics. Standup, to cartoons.
>Beware, some 'comedy' is just malicious brainwashing, and manipulation. SJW stuff is cancer due to it being just behavioral modification, and self justification.

Doesn't matter if it isn't funny to you atm. The next part is to just smile. Especially if you don't actually feel happiness, joy, or mania at the moment.

At the punchline to the joke, when you hear the audience laugh, AND you find it funny laugh. Laugh like you really mean it. Make sure to keep smiling.

Like most things about people we don't actually know everything, and sometimes we're just wrong in our theories.

Most humor is looking at things with a twist. Here's something I have been doing lately. I'll talk for the cat. And the baby. Turns out, both the baby and the cat are pretty damn self centered and have a total lack of concern for others. I give them their voice, and it's pretty spot on, if rude, crude and obnoxious.

I just look at the situation, and I know what's going on in their mind. Then I crank it up. It's really not that hard.

Most people are expected to know what they want to do in life and for the most part, most do. Most of everyone I knew in high school automatically knew what they wanted to do in life and as soon as they left, they chased after it immediately. However, I just don't. I remember in school I remember everyone telling me "you have to know what you want to do in life as soon as you are an adult" but the problem is, I honestly don't know.

I guess this is because of a number of reasons but the biggest reason I think was that when I started to develop deep philosophical thinking and the sort, (around 13 I think, I don't care how late or early I was to that stage) my family was financially poor and got poorer over the years. All that was in our minds was survival. We wasn't in severe poverty since we had a house, water, electricity, internet, but my I remember my dad got laid off and searched for companies to work for since he was a coal miner and obongo's anti coal policies didn't help so the future for us was uncertain. Survival was all in our minds, including mine, and that's what our mindset revolved around really. Now being poor taught me lots of valuable lessons for life such as money management, managing expectations, values of hard work etc. so it set me up for the work force. However it also made me realize how harsh and unforgiving the world is and I developed a sort of nihilism that what I do on this earth wont matter much in the end though as a Christian I know something happen on purpose but not all things.

Also the idea of finding a field I must enjoy for the rest of my life bothers me. Am I really gonna like doing this one particular thing all my life? What if mid life I want to do something else? What if I'm just not material for the workfield I dream of working in and I can never get accepted into it? Also I know the big thing is to go to college and find something in there and I go chase after it but honestly, the idea of going to college makes me sick. Plus there just isn't much there I can feel fine with spending 4 years of my life learning and getting in tens of thousands of dollars in debt over. A trade school however I could do since its far more shorter and debt is way more manageable but still, I don't know what truly interests me.

Basically all I think of is survival and getting by. I don't think of anything greater since I have never known what that is like. Surviving and scrapping by has been all I've known inPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

No goals? It is implied in using /pol/ boards unironically that you follow at least one of the many goals like:
-learning about/stopping Illuminati
-learning about/stopping Conspiracies
-supporting/stopping legacy of nazis
-stopping degeneracy/saving civilization
-seeking/spreading the truth
-leading happy and successful life/helping others achieve the same
-having a happy family life/+raising kids

There are probably goals in life which are implied by using /mlp/ boards too but they are probably less impressive.

I was lost in my early teens about Jobs. Pretty much your same state.
I Was generation TV. So I kinda put that decision on the back burner. All I knew was it'll get brought up when you're ready to leave school.
Come 15 I panicked. Job expo was a bust. It was armed services or hawking employers trying to poach illegally low waged labor.

Everything would be fine if I wasn't limited in education path.
But single Mum raising me on gibs wasn't ethical. Despite what people said of my career potential.

So I'm not even sure if I passed year 10. But I got an apprenticeship as a heavy metal worker.
I don't regret it. It fucked me up. But a academic path was my fall back luckily enough.

Reason what made it so good was I fell back form being insightful and higher thinking all the time. It gave me normality in exchange of breaking my back.

Impossible over two years. There is always more to learn and picking a specialization (such as economics) may be worth it so long as you can also apply general knowledge. I cannot consider you well-read in economics if you have not gone through the essential works of Murray Rothbard.

In addition, "The Bell Curve" is an underappreciated empirical supplement in an economic sphere. Add some Alt-Hype to the mix and you'll be on the right track.

For comparison, I plan to write a book in ~8 years and most of that will be comprehensive study of politics, history, economics, sociology, philosophy, theology, etc. I have serious doubts as to whether that's enough time or if I could do a good job of it.
