Should I start a carnivore/raw primal/high cholesterol ,high-fat diet?
I know how terribly unhealthy this all sounds but it also sounds hyper-masculine and caveman. I know some bodybuilders have 40 eggs a day and theyre fine(inb4 Gaston)

It will raise your testosterone and kill you at the same time. You will die from a heart attack while masturbating furiously.
IMO it's worth it.

Let's have a thread about chemistry. I can't be the only amateur chemist on here. To please the mods, everything in here is purely academic. Check local laws before you embark on your projects. And before you do anything, make sure you have appropriate safety equipment. Think about the worst thing that could happen to your reaction, because chances are it will. Don't be stupid.

Archive.org has plenty of old chemistry textbooks. The most useful ones for me are those meant to teach youngsters from the early 1900's.

Good idea. Perhaps a mod would be willing to move the thread.

Where to get chemicals
Useful chemicals can be found in many places. Read the material safety datasheets (MSDS) that goes with certain products. Useful places include:
Grocery stores
Hardware stores
Garden suppliers
Pool supply stores

Online suppliers in the EU:

What's the coolest thing you've made? better not be homemade crystals from /b/

I've made simple explosives but only legally for film props. if there's a revolution you can count on me to have smoke.

high temperature electrochemistry, but that's not very exciting for regular peeps. so, the usual: R-candy, smoke bombs and thermite

I have plans to "upgrade" some NaNO3 to KNO3 via metathesis with KCl. after that I might get into HNO3 synthesis by electrolysing bog water

Not sure if you fags play tabletop games that much, but what is up with the resurgence of OSR games on not only /tg/ but also reddit too? Race as class, no real ability modifiers, all that shit. I feel like OSR is boring as shit, and I have no ability to empathize with people who do like it, so I genuinely wonder, why are people into OSR stuff?

 No.15675

>Race as class, no real ability modifiers
This sounds awful.

I love OSR dnd because race-as-class eliminates half-angel, half-tiefling wild magic sorcerer player characters

Pretty simple phenomenon, tgfags think DnD today is too varied and fun and normie-friendly so they go back to miserable rules-as-written old style dungeoncrawling wank.

 No.15775

I played the entry tabletop games. Castles of burgundy, dominion, pandemic.

Had the most fun with Dominion, the game is dope, fairly easy to learn and has a fair bit of strategy. I like cob too, but its kind of long and drags on. They should keep making expansions for it and sell them like yugioh cards or something

I tried getting into D&D once, but then came across a 300pg instruction booklet. I passed got no time for that

I can’t understand how people crate high energy dogs, those guys are pretty smart and ideally need some job to do to be happy. It’s like prison for them.

If you want a lower energy dog, just get a small one. Papillons are known to be pretty smart and lower energy

That's a ridiculous urbanite idiocy. It's good for cats to explore and hunt. My cat wants to be outside and goes exploring the neighborhood. He's already nearing 20 years but still active.

It certainly isn't good for your local ecosystem, typical ruralite narcissism.

leftover from a time where they actually served a purpose in human labor, they're now emotional slaves for egoistic cunts who mostly dont take good care of them despite what they think, and use them to have a social relation where they have a clear and uncontested domination with minimum moral repercussions.
Should be forbidden in cities

so, does anyone have weird/autistic hobbies? I like collecting insects, arachnids, small animals and etc putting them in jars and observing them. I don't just chuck them in either, I make sure they have a decent home so I always insert grass/leaves/sand/whatever else they like. I used to have a miniature zoo at home but medical university makes it hard for me to keep a large collection unfortunately. I've been doing this since I was 4 years old, at least thats the earliest time I can remember doing this kind of thing.

Is world building considered autistic? I’ve been interested in it for a while but I only read on them and make random maps. Since I have nowhere near the artistic capacity to actually draw.

I like to retranslate songs and some dialogue from a children's cartoon. That's my weird hobby.
When I move on to another series or movie I'l probably do the same.

Besides racing & golf? Is there another richmen club hobbies that should be abolish?

Hoarding absolutely.

Hoarding stamps? Nope. Airsofters? Nope. Roleplaying? Nope. Cosplaying? Nope. Drama? Yes. Gambling? Yes. Coping? Yes.

Is there anything else?

I also recently got this book on VKhUTEMAS, which is often described as the "Soviet Bauhaus"—the author summarized the differences between the two in a lecture given at GARAGEMCA last year, which I thought was interesting:
>..if the Bauhaus was ultimately dedicated to developing an individual, VKhUTEMAS was really about developing the masses"

Reminder this thread came out of /log/ talking about early CPUSA-adjacent artists in /log/. If anyone wants to learn more about that then by all means check out Andrew Hemingway's work. He seems like one of the few people carrying the torch of "Social Art History" as far as American and British art are concerned: https://archive.org/details/andrew-hemingway-artists-on-the-left-american-artists-and-the-communist-movement-1926-1956/
