Re: **** literally never gives a ****

I don't know.....

retire by 30+ and then?
Are you gonna lay on your back and wait for the death?
I don't think so. What then?

I mean I understand this wish to have some kind of material security, although I am probably a damaged good by immigration in this. But there must be things that give you a kick, give you this flow, make your brain feel good somewhere on the neurologic level. Not like in religion, not like in extern prescribed moral.

And to which charity do you plan to leave all your goods after the death?

Tell me to STFU, if I am annoying, but I am still gonna read this.

I used the word '****' in the literal sense in that sentence. I.e. I just don't like to insert anything into anyone else's cavities. The same applies to the thread title.

I'm going to just indulge myself in cost-efficient ways, as I've already taken my lifetime dose of suffering imo.

Suggestions are welcome.

.
What would you do for indulgence?

And duuuuuudeeeeee...... How about becoming less mysterious? I mean you have issues, who has none? My experience is that verbalizing them makes them a lot less important. I don't really understand why, but somehow writing things down that did plague me for looooong time was pretty freeing and relaxing.

As far as people, my evil plan is to hire a female fitness / yoga instructor (and do nothing with her besides the actual fitness and small talk, don't get me wrong).

But the main area of improvement will be that I'll start absorbing the beauty of inanimate objects much more. At my current place, the forest is near but it's not enough fun when the air is polluted. At my new place, the air is twice cleaner, the forest is next to the yard, the Moskva river is just 1.5 km away though it's not much fun either as its bank is maintained poorly.

Oh, and please accept my apologies for posting the above video, krunic - I agree that the Lena girl needs a better band, so much vocal potential is being wasted on this nu metal nonsense.

Re: **** literally never gives a ****

And well, bad music is bad because it's specifically designed to be addictive - uses spaced (or, in the pop case, not so spaced) repetition. It might have therapeutic effect, just I have to be careful about the messages to be beat into myself. As a grotesque example, 'I did my time and I want out' (as in the infamous 'Psychosocial Baby' Slipknot / Bieber mashup) is clearly a message to be avoided

Re: **** literally never gives a ****

The vid is not bad. Dependent on the mood would have been totally my taste in certain phases. The idea with forest is GREAT. And I think you should do it now. Just go more for hikes. I do it in Germany a lot and forests in Germany are boring parks compared to Moskauer surrounding. For me just an hour in a forest and all my anxieties do calm down and get better. And Yoga you should also do NOW and not in some abstract future when you achieve some level of money or I don't know..... Seriously..... DO IT! Go to a yoga course. It is super cool. I mean I know I know: you don't want a course. This people .....

But seriously both ideas are just great, and do them NOW!

Re: **** literally never gives a ****

I can surely afford forest walks but can't afford a yoga course right now - have to be cutting my costs to the bone until I fully move. And it would impractical to start a course now anyway, as my new place is 2.5 hours away from here and (hopefully) in 3 months I'll be there so I'd have to switch schools.

Re: **** literally never gives a ****

As an example of one of my numerous thought experiments that are in fact pointless

Disclaimer: YMMV.

My stance is that yoga / fitness is itself a pleasurable and intense physical activity whose big advantage over sex is that it doesn't require trespassing on the partner's inside, doesn't require protection, contraception etc., so it's less stressful to everyone involved.

If a yoga instructor started hitting on me, I'd tell her to ignore my physiological reaction that I prefer to take care of when I'm alone at home. I'd tell her that I only want to do the yoga business with her and nothing besides that business, and if she disagrees, then she'll lose her profit as I'll find another instructor; and that I'm not gonna subscribe for getting tired of putting up with her **** and not gonna feed her with mine either - that's what her husband (or her future boyfriend if she's single) exists for.

The desire to violate her body would indicate self-esteem issues, as it's very possible to have great pleasure without possessing anyone, especially anyone who's already 'taken' (has a husband).

Edit: I must be weird as I find it more pleasurable to have the freedom to fap on 1K Instagram / DeviantArt babes of my choice than to have 1 nasty gf prohibiting me from surfing DA (substitute it with your fav porn site). Variety is key.
(Heh, to preempt possible questions, I'll mention that I do have a rather unfounded suspicion that my mother raped me or 'was too tender' to me at some point (that I obviously can't remember - nobody can effortlessly recall such childhood moments) despite the fact that she denies it.)

What's flawed in my thought process:

1. The vast majority of legit yoga instructors aren't hunting for a lover anyway because they've already had so many male clients to choose from that they're already happily married.

2. I'm good at sending aromantic and agender vibes (gender is a useless social construct, fwiw) so I shouldn't be worried about being mistaken for an alloromantic male too often (despite my facial hair yet growing ).

3. I'm so touch-averse that it will be clearly visible.

4. Most women don't like to make moves. If their flirting goes unnoticed, they just shrug and move on.

5. It's a waste of nerves to fear something that hasn't happened yet.

6. If, despite 1-4, someone makes a move on me, I can just tell them to have their brains checked - the probability of this spot is so low that it doesn't matter what to do. If I folded royal flushes every time, that wouldn't have a big impact on my ROI because royal flushes are rare.

Re: **** literally never gives a ****

On bearded ladies

There a few disorders that cause women to have facial hair.

It disturbs me that most of them succumb to gender-based expectations and suffer in attempts to remove that hair when they could just leave it as it is and make it socially acceptable and celebrate the human variety like Little Bear Schwarz.

Here's how 11 female celebrities could look like if they had beards. I haven't noticed much difference in my appreciation of their portraits with or without facial hair.

P.S. RIP, those who were killed in the Manchester attack
