It's accurate. Finances and health really is what they talk about, almost exclusively.
>> No. 730 [Edit]
Cars are a very common interest here, people talk about them all the time. Most people do have some interests like that, the problem I have is that when they do coincide with my own they often know very little about it, which isn't all that surprising, most don't but most also like to think they do.

I'll start with mine

It would be nice if the majority of the boomer, 60's counterculture, TV generation all just croak from this virus.
But it would be equally nice if this virus distrupted the public schooling system so that everything moves online.
The government then finds it an effective means of cutting costs as they don't have to payroll as many teachers, supply facilities, equipment, etc.
What this would mean is that a whole generation would not be socially conditioned
1. by their parents who are too busy with work to have time to babysit
2. from school which only consists of online courses rather than irl social pressuring/indoctrination

Without any social setting they would end up shaped by the non-conformist online community at large.

And they are tiny for a reason, the vast majority of people don't use them and would not use them, they would stick to the large sites. And even on these enclaves popular culture and opinions seep in. These enclaves are just versions of Facebook with different hats on.

Age is irrelevant; that country was that of any other modern state since it is an offshoot of an existing European power. You're just grasping at straws.

>Not their achievement. They didn't do anything for it, they just existed as unicellular.

It doesn't matter, the fact still stands.

>Schizophrenia is genetically determined

False, it is well known that it can be caused by external factors. The current thinking is that people are genetically prone to it, not that it is genetic. But even were that true, tulpas would still fall into that as an expression of schizophrenia, it would just mean that only those with a genetic disposition would fall victim to it.

>there are 450 to 500 million positive atheists and agnostics worldwide (7% of the world's population)

It would depend on where they studied. I meant it's a popular opinion on the internet, particularly on image boards. The majority of the world is made up of third worlders and most of them are religious. Even in the developed world, much of the population is made up of old people, who are again, often religious.
>> No. 795 [Edit]

>it can be caused by external factors.
And it may be caused because there is a dormant schizophrenia in your DNA. If it is not there, then there is nothing to talk about.
>tulpas would still fall into that as an expression of schizophrenia
You say that because you do not fully understand what a tulpa is. This is not a hallucination, it is just a fictional being in your mind that you have been thinking about for a long time and to which you have a very strong attachment. You will not see it in front of you, because thoughts can not be materialized. Schizophrenia has nothing to do with it.
>I meant it's a popular opinion on the internet, particularly on image boards.
I do not think your little observations have any statistical significance. You have not done any research or meta-research, you are just judging by your incomplete experience. It is easy to put you in an awkward position by asking you questions such as what boards did you sit on; how many people did you interview; how many of them have changed their minds; have you made at least one chart? And do not forget about the survivorship bias.
>> No. 796 [Edit]

>And it may be caused because there is a dormant schizophrenia in your DNA.

Well it's not the currently held belief in the medical community. Currently they believe certain people are more vulnerable to it based on genetics but that it's not wholly a genetic issue. Even the genetic component is based on the fact that having family members who have it will raise ones chance of having it as well. However, that in itself may not wholly b genetic. People tend to live in similar environments that there relatives, a good example would be drug use(a known contributor to schizophrenia), people who grew up with parents that do drugs tend to have a higher chance of doing drugs themselves.


>This is not a hallucination, it is just a fictional being in your mind that you have been thinking about for a long time and to which you have a very strong attachment.

Well that isn't a tulpa then, a tulpa is a hullucination. It's a being you created in your head and believe to be real, you believe that you have created it. It's not just something you have been thinking about.

>I do not think your little observations have any statistical significance. You have not done any research or meta-research, you are just judging by your incomplete experience.

I could say the same to you. Not calling you new or anything but it's a very popular opinion thrown about on image boards all the time. I am very surprised that you have not come across it and come across it often at that.
>> No. 797 [Edit]
>>796
>Well that isn't a tulpa then
Your problem is that you do not understand that this concept has transformed over time and has moved away from mysticism. I will not even say that paranormal phenomena are impossible, so the definition of tulpa will have to be changed. This is an imaginary friend, not a hallucination, or something that appeared right in front of you because of your power of thought.
>It's a being you created in your head
>you believe that you have created it.
Indeed.
>and believe to be real
Depends on what is meant by the real.
>It's not just something you have been thinking about.
You misinterpreted my words. I said that you thought about it for a long time and were attached to it emotionally.
>I could say the same to you.
*Sigh*
Unlike you, I did not make questionable claims about the prevalence of atheism on imageboards, and when I spoke about the percentage of atheists in the world, I at least referred to a real research.

Barring internet connection, a lot of the pleasantries of a home in the city can be recreated small-scale in the country. At the risk of blogposting, my mom moved from the city into a trailer in the middle of fuckall about 2 years ago with no money and very few working faculties (like a decent toilet or consistent electricity). And as of posting this, she's dug up underground and set up the pipes, gotten a generator for electricity, built a chicken coop, and revamped the shed into a studio.

Not to mention that well water is, at least in my opinion, a lot nicer than the bitter city water. I would never personally be willing to forgo an internet connection for the other niceties, but you can live an incredibly comfy life provided you put in the initial efforts to recreate it, with the added benefit of near complete independence. But of course a lot of it comes to personal preferences and what trade-offs someone is willing to make.
>> No. 751 [Edit]
Yes, it would also be nice if the country was less populated and more wild in general, the problem now is that all land is owned by somebody and used for something.

>>658
Maybe, you could opt for a middle ground and live in the middle of nowhere but in a developed country where you will have all that anyway. Basically what we have now but with less people.

According to my understanding, I think it's either baboons or chimpanzees for whom, when in heat, the genitalia of the females swells to an enormous size so I don't think the people who have the puffy vulva fetish are closeted gays. I think they're just more animalistic than normal. Just out of curiosity, has anyone here ever been aroused at the sight of a mare's genitalia? I know I have. It's like regular genitalia, but larger.
>> No. 729 [Edit]
That's actually how they look on younger girls though, particularly 10-14(maybe later as well). I think it grows out of proportion to the hips and the hips catch up later.

I'm not a paedophile or anything I just have three younger sisters who were not always that shy about the way they dressed or acted at home.

I made a thread on a Christian forum for fun. I don't have any problem with them, it's just interesting, but you can see how anything you say to them rolls off like water on a leaf. They can't seem to accept human similarities with animals. They're really convinced we're the most important thing in the universe. It's like they're stuck in this little box. They know a lot about the bible and that's about it. I'm not "debating" them or anything. Why do you think people get stuck in these bubbles?

well sure OP, you may act like an animal but you dont need to project that on everyone else. the whole point of religion is to distance yourself from animals, usually through God.

You're acting like an animal right now, whether you like it or not. In any social situation you may find yourself in, everyone acts like an animal. We are animals. There is no distancing yourself from it. You don't even know what acting like an animal means.

Psychiatry only exists as a means for charlatans posing as doctors to trick individuals into forking over large amounts of cash in exchange for complicated excuses for their terrible behavior as well as access to otherwise illegal addictive feel-good pills.

Oh no not this stupid airplane question again (>>/navi/1012). I'm also not sure why it needed to be posted since it's probably going to derail any discussion towards your main point.

I think that the field of psychology and psychiatrists in particular are mostly ineffective. That being said for a large majority of normal people's problems (hypothetically sadness due to a breakup or some other surface-level trivial issue) it's possible that just having someone to "talk it out" with and being patted on the back with platitudes is sufficient to re-patch their facade of life. But psychiatrists are pretty much ineffective for anything else, and any advice they give is vastly overpriced for what amounts to items found in self-help books.
