Modern day nerds have become super autistic about plotholes and having a story that makes sense and is serious. This isn't neceserally a bad desire, but it fucks wizzards in the ass. There is a reason 99% of fiction nowadays has the trope where wizzards are treated like subhumans or something of the sort - its the one trope that works, and no others are really available. The only other thing is making an extra autistic magic system that makes wizzards into scientists with "eh" powers. I'm actually sorta building a fantasy setting right now, and I just decided to say "fuck it" and just have no wizzards because they don't add anything that cool on their own. So I'd say unless you want to make magic a lynchpin of your setting, just don't add it in.

I noticed this too, the other day I was reading some anime reviews and reviewers were like THE NATURE OF THIS POWER/EVENT WAS NOT EXPLAINED WHATSOEVER LAZY WRITING. I also remember a YouTuber whining years ago about Mad Max Fury Road not giving detailed background to the enemies and creatures moving on crutches in the dark.

For some reason, people don't want any mystery or sense of wonder in their media.

I don't know where else to ask this but how do I make the best use of my free time?
I was a NEET and stacked up too many hobbies but now I'm going to trade school and soon I'll get a job and the little free time I have is too crammed.
What do I do?

Yep. You have to work for some time for experience, this should be seen just as a continuation of studying. Meanwhile if you can find a union, join it. Ask if they plan any action to reduce the work day (same wage!). Support 4 hours/day movement anyhow you can.

May be this will help you: a simple hobby is a capitalist bait, do what you want, consume, here, take this, work more, buy this new thing for you stupid hobby, consume more - this is their bait. Everything is not easy at the beginning. A hobby is not necessary should be easy one at first. So you have a goal, with time, working on the goal, it may become as easy as tooth brushing. The goal within union, to strike, to reduce the workday is a good goal, it is a good sort of hobby. Studying a skill if it is not some meaningless bullshit, is too a good thing and may not be easy at first, but may become a fun "hobby."

May be you understand that, you had other not simple hobbies. But this is your new hobby at this moment.

ngl, this is better than most advice I have seen on this is issue.

Most of my hobbies started out with me running into it, having a small interest, and attaching a goal to it (get better at it, meet more friends who enjoy it). It's even better if the goal is internal, something that you cultivate deep inside yourself.

Information should be freely shared with everyone. Media is information. Therefore media should be freely shared, the only cost being the physical storage medium, if there is one.

What's your go-to places for pirating media? Mine are RARBG for movies/shows, nyaa.si for anime/manga, fitgirl for vidya, /edu/ for books.

 No.16019

libgen for books
sci hub for research articles

 No.16132

Pirating from any big coropretion is always morally correct. but we should buy games from our indie comrades, thay actualy recive what their product is generating. and the same with any media, if it is owned by large companies hack it without hesitation.

I agree with supporting our comrades, but it should be done willingly through donations, or (eventually) by the state. Demanding to be paid for every digital copy is merely rent-seeking, and locking digital copies with DRM goes against the foundation of freedom of information.

I like itch.io because a bunch of games from there are "pay what you want". I support that model.

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:

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
