I feel empty in life and want to gain some hobbies.

I practice climbing, I read and write but I mostly shitpost or doomscroll on the internet.

Do you know some inexpensive hobbies for a city dweller ?

Mixed media art is fun, you can just have a drinks with friends and use literal trash to make bright colored crap from all this plastic shit that will rot in a third world dumping site.

Contrary to popular belief, photography is actually pretty cheap. If you just want to learn the craft, you can make sharp 8x10, even 11x14 prints with a smartphone camera. To take things seriously, you can get a really solid used DSLR setup with a "pro zoom" for under $500. Photography only gets expensive if 1) you're a total gearhead that pays thousands for equipment that will only be appreciated in giant wall prints, or 2) you shoot film (hip right now but crazy expensive per roll)

Playing a ball centered sport such as Soccer or Basketball is practically free outside of buying a ball and getting shoes.

>I read and write but I mostly shitpost or doomscroll on the internet.

Depending on how you shitpost and doomscroll, why not try coming up with intricate internet-based writings, for example think creepypastas but steps above. You can also try coming up with a fictional world. You don't have to write a book or anything, but you can lay multiple foundations and worldbuilding.

You can try getting into art.
>PS/Paint/Drawing/Etc
Is free with apps like Gimp but if you want stuff like Adobe it's incredible easy to crack/torrent. This can even be combined with your writing or reading. Concept art for readings you like or writings you come up with
>Music
Like music? Try making some. Multiple DAWs are once again, easily torrented/cracked. You can also get VSTs/Plugins for free as well.

 No.21015

If 100 dollars is cheap, you could always just get a tablet and download something like GIMP or Paint.net or whatever and start drawing.

Anyone else want to watch the world burn but like… semi-ironically?
Ok this gon be cringeworthy, I find myself sounding like edgy teen nihilist
I read about climate change, collapse, yada yada, and find myself upset when I read even on the most pessimistic sites (if we only count those whose authors seem to be of clear mind of course) that shit isn't gonna hit the fan til like 2050.
What I personally see coming in the future is some sort of cyber gulag, the inescapable kind. Because let's admit it's already there, you still can opt out, but then you pretty much opt out of technology as a whole (because even tho non-botnet tech is available, there are no people there, you can't talk to your family there (well that depends on the family ofc) or any irl people) and even life partially (good luck socializing with zoomers without botnet). And this is the direction the world is taking, this is the dystopia of the future. But it's like… so damn boring.
I want to have food shortages. I want to have popular unrest. I want to to have to retreat into the woods and grow shit. What the fuck man, I want life to be hard, in a way that is meaningful, I want to face actual death, not spiritual death at a 9-5 job which is BORING.
Take privacy again. The choice you're faced with is either give up completely and communicate with normies on Instagram and shit or retreat to xmpp/mastodon whatever and talk to 1,5 weirdos there. But this choice is BORING! I don't want to have to retreat to xmpp, I want to retreat to the woods and shit

eventually you'll stop being lazy and do hard shit yourself because it's meaningful and not wish hardship forced upon you. or you won't, whatever.

if you need a kick in the pants, all preparation/training you do now increases your chances of surviving decades from now.

Ladies, gentlemen, attack helicopters…what did he do wrong? Was any part of The Closer hate speech? I understand discussions like these aren't always welcome here but I'm not sure what good not talking about it's gonna do. Anyhow, I find it hard to come away from watching The Closer thinking Chapelle is anti-lgbt. I mean the fucking special ends with him declaring he's going to give a ton of money to a transgendered persons daughter. Regrettably that person committed suicide. You could argue he cares about that persons daughter more than she did. What he does do is make some poignant critiques about the lgbt movement, but it's nothing that amounts to hate speech. Anyhow, I'm just curious where people here are at on this.

Both the official client and server are proprietary and closed-source, but an open-source client Nicotine+ is available and the server/protocol have been reverse engineered and there exist published server implementations. File transfers occur between clients, the central servers only handle searches, chats, and user accounts. It's a pretty well-known network, not much to be concerned about wrt privacy.

How do I grow weed, do I need a specific kind soil, can I grow some on a normal pot that I can put by the window? How do I grind the leaf into form that can be smoked, as in is there a specific tool? How much sunlight does it need? How much watering?

Literally put seeds in fertilized soil near a strong light source and water it and it will grow, it needn't be a science but if you want maximum efficiency you'll need to do some research.

Not sure who here is into watches, but I really enjoy them as both time-capsules for the aesthetic sensibilities of a period as well as for craftmanship and engineering.
picrel is a Soviet made Raketa 'Big Zero' Khrushchev's favourite watch but heres some other interesting examples;

> Mao had an Omega pocket watch given by Zhou Enlai

> Che was often seen wearing a Rolex Submariner
> Fidel also favoured Rolex and would rock up to 3 timezones at a time (typically Havana/Moscow/Washington time)

Think it's worth mentioning that Rolex wasn't a luxury brand the way it is now and was more of a tool watch.
Anyway, show us what you got or just tell me fuck myself, whichever suits you

>Can anyone tell me how good Soviet dive watches were?
Here's a good review,
<I’ve been on a James Bond kick lately. So as the release of “No Time to Die” draws closer, I decided to check into buying one of the watches worn by the iconic super spy. But, a quick glance at the prices was enough to nix that operation.
<Vostok Amphibian
<Well, if I can’t afford a Bond watch, what about something that could have been worn by one of his Russian nemeses? Enter the $60-ish Vostok Amphibian, a Soviet timepiece released in the same year as the Connery classic “You Only Live Twice.” These watches are legendary for their oddball appearance and durability, backed by a legitimate diving pedigree.
