Garage sales, pawn shops, online selling, everything goes so long as it is kept legal.
You can also recommend some good places to sell stuff that others might now know about or share resale knowledge that others might not know. You can also post pictures of what you intend to sell before you it's gone.

I live with my mum, two sisters and my brother, but I live in a shed so I get a reasonable amount of privacy. The people in my family are all degenerating over time though, when they were kids I didn't mind them, now I hate them and barely feel any kind of attachment to them, somehow it makes me feel lonelier than not having anybody around at all. I really want to move out but I would need Autism payments or something of that nature to do it, if I did move out I don't think I would have anything to do with them again.

>vegan/vegetarian
A bit tangential, but I recently found out that Japanese monks actually have a "codified" vegetarian diet, Shojin Ryori. Then again, JP diet is mostly lacto-ovo vegetarian + fish so it's not too much of a stretch but it's interesting that a lot of eastern monks and religions (hinduism, buddhism) discourage meat eating (in India with the caste-system, Brahmins also couldn't eat meat. Although in modern times this is a bit blurred and india isn't the mythologized vegetarian nation that the west sometimes portrays it to be, although there are still non-trivial subsets of the population who adhere to it).

Of course putting aside the religious reasons they give for not eating meat (which are usually corporeal in the case of western vegans – "think of the animals" – or more spiritual in the case of the religions/monks – that the emotions slaughtered animals subtly affect you on a non-physical plane [1]) the interesting part is whether it's "healthy" to live like this in the first place. The fact that JP does pretty well with basically lacto-ovo vegetarian + fish seems to indicate that it's probably possible, although removing the fish means you lose out on EPA/DHA omega-3. The body can convert ALA found in some vegetables and nuts to these two, but only certain genotypes seem to do so efficiently [2].

And of course if you cut out milk altogether then it's basically game-over in terms of trying to be healthy without supplements since you have no b12. So ironically if the vegans would just shut up and drink some milk and eat fish once a week they could honestly be fine and be 95% of the way there in terms of their goals. Although I suppose you never hear about those people, it's always the most dogmatic ones who refuse to compromise.

[1] As I take it, this only really matters later on in "spiritual development," and it's technically neither necessary nor sufficient for de

The Japanese actually do eat red meat now and the average height before they started doing that was 5 foot tall, authentic Samurai armour is tiny. Funnily enough even Tibetan Buddhist monks eat meat, the Dalai Lama himself does.
>> No. 38551 [Edit]

Yeah they've probably been influenced a bit by the west. Also good point on the stature, a vegetarian diet isn't exactly conducive to robust physical activities (although there are probably ways to make it work if you carefully manage things). Indeed, that's probably why it works for monks and such, where you don't expend much energy – physical or mental – at all.

>Funnily enough even Tibetan Buddhist monks eat meat, the Dalai Lama himself does.
Yeah I think I read he tried it for a short period but developed health issues. Historically I think this could also be due to the fact that vegetables don't grow that well in Tibet so doing vegetarianism is hard there, but even in modern times with globalized agriculture I guess it's just momentum from historical diets (plus practically it's probably cheaper) combined with the fact that it ultimately doesn't impact things too much either way.

And I found this amusing article which – if true – probably indicates that you shouldn't look to monks as the picture of healthy living ]1]

I hate the consumerist aspect of Christmas, but the idea of a day to celebrate charity, kindness, and goodwill is appealing to me. Likewise, I like the concept of Thanksgiving being a day to express gratitude and reflect on the things we are thankful for, but people just eat a huge turkey dinner and go buy half-priced garbage the very next day. In general, I think it is very regrettable that normalfags typically prefer celebrating days like these by purchasing cheap garbage, eating excessively extravagant meals, or selfishly enjoying the receipt of things from others.

After seeing the immense popularity of the what bugs you thread, I decided that I would make a thread for people to post all the awesome things (big or little) in life that simply make you happy. I understand Tohno-Chan has a lot of gripes and resentments, but we cant all be negative all the time. After all, what is negativity if we have nothing to compare it too?

Sure. About two thirds of us are overweight, across all of Europe. What I meant was not that Italians are unusually fat, just that they're also as fat as us.

The differences between 'national diets' aren't that big anymore. We all stuff our gobs with the same shit. Same 'imported' internationally popular dishes, fast food, sweets, snacks, soda, beer. Local cuisine got overtaken by the global favourites.
But I think even before globalization food in most regions was based mainly on cereal and starchy vegetables. That's what agriculture was always focused on, probably everywhere. But today barely anyone gets enough daily activity to eat all of that high energy food and not get fat.

Could be the only thing Europe is united in is obesity. We grow fat together, that should be our motto.

I don't know how we compare to the USA.

>>33091
Carry on then. Personally I can't tell the difference.

It has more to do with their mere presence than [potential] conversation.

A fear of other human beings is probably nigh-impossible to imagine if you don't have it, but that also applies to virtually every phobia, along with certain elements of other neurological disorders (for example, the fact that many people on the autism spectrum are completely unable to perceive sarcasm, irony, and metaphors).
