did they give you a distribution map?

This is what my mom told me about my family ethnicities.

https://illuminaticatblog.wordpress.com/2017/04/25/my-family-heritage/
I remember that you posted about your ancestry somewhere on this site. I thought it was interesting that you had so much Native American in you considering I think you are blond hair blue eyes.

Its weird because my father could pass as Native American, but there's nary a trace of Native American in my DNA.. Must have got most of my mother's genes. *shrug*

I did get a kind of distribution map, yes. It also came with a pie chart:



I forgot about Ireland, Great Britain and Italy/Greece so that is where the other 9% went, I guess.

I went with 23&me, I got

33% Native American
24% British/Irish
18% Iberian
7% French/German
2% sub Saharan African
Traces of yakut, MENA, Ashkenazi, Scandinavian, sardinian.
The rest being "broadly east Asian/Native American", "broadly southern European" and "broadly nw European"
I am wondering how common it is for people to have Native American roots on this site atm. :thinking:

When saw your picture of yourself QT I immediately thought of how you looked Nordic.

btw my eyes are green, I was super blonde as a 12-year-old but now I am dirty blonde.

Because of my dad, I am 1/4 native American.

I was not sure on the eyes, which is why I said "I think".

Hmm.. I can see some Native American in you with the kind of facial structure you have now that you mention it.

Interesting that you could see the nordic in me right way, you are pretty perceptive.

  • I want to kick cyborg ass right now
  • How would one do that? I'm dreaming of gauntlets with blades that come out of the top, jumping up into the air and jabbing the curved blade right thru the cyborg. Or some sort of electro magnetic field stuff to mess with them. Jabby gauntlet swords are so much more fun tho.
  • I actually have a story though where I need to do this. How would that work? How do you take down government brainwashed cyborg humanoid wolves
  • I'm Irish, French, Swedish and German and I think that's a cool mix. I'm mostly Irish. I'm learning French, i want to learn German, and I'd love to learn several Scandinavian languages. I feel like I'd get them mixed up though. I used to know some Spanish but after a year of French, my Spanish has been completely fried and ruined.

  • It's 1:45 AM and I really gotta start getting myself back on school time. Wake up at 6, be outta the house by 6:50 or whatever. Which means getting to bed at what.. 11ish is usually good if I want enough sleep to function. Yeah. I should get into a rhythm. Alarm clock on. Get up. Out of bed, get dressed, eat breakfast, maybe make some coffee. Be up and in a state where I could go out by 6:50. I can do that. It'll feel good. Probably. As long as I'm actually sleeping at night.
  • Mm I'm tired. But my foot is shaking almost uncontrollably and my mind's active, and I'm feeling creative, and and and. I have fifty songs stuck in my head.
  • CocoRosie: Smokey Taboo || Jaime Dolce's Innersole!: Space Captain || Siouxsie and the Banshees: The Passenger || Echo and the Bunnymen: The Killing Moon || The Stone Roses: I Wanna Be Adored || The Chameleons: In Shreds || Alice Phoebe Lou: Bang Bang || CocoRosie: Werewolf || Pencey Prep: Lloyd Dobbler || Sublime: Wrong Way || No Doubt: Just A Girl || Tom Petty: Zombie Zoo || Lana Del Rey: Ride || Lana Del Rey: Serial Killer || Death Grips: Beware || Yaël Naïm: Toxic || Ducktails: Letter Of Intent || Princess Chelsea: The Cigarette Duet || Die Antwoord: Baby's On Fire || Angel Haze: Black Synagogue || Cigarettes After Sex: Nothing's Gonna Hurt You Baby || CocoRosie: You Wanna F*ck Me || David Bowie: Heroes || David Bowie: Rock n Roll Suicide || Car Seat Headrest: Something Soon || Lard: I Wanna Be a Drug-Sniffing Dog || Naughty By Nature: O.P.P. || The Unicorns: Tuff Luff
  • Main song in my head is Werewolf by Cocorosie tho
    Ima shake you off though / Get up on that horse and / Ride into the sunset / Look back with no remorse

I've heard before, that if you're studying multiple languages at once, to choose ones that are very different from each other, so as to avoid confusion. Like romance/Latin languages.. although for romance languages, once you have a couple well mastered, the others are very easy to pick up.

damn, somehow i have two dates this weekend, tomorrow one and sunday another one.
with two different girls who have a university degree and they are getting tonshit of money
and i'm no one haha with no job
positive side: we met before and we had fun, loadssss. i just need to forget about technical qualifications and all be fine.
i guess the difference is that these are official dates u know?, not a random night where u meet someone new and u talk all night with that person and then get drunk and shit.
i guess for me there has never been a big difference.
i guess the only particular thing atm is that i don't feel like having sex or even dating, they smell desinterest and compete. that's what this is all about.
piss

Don't sweat it. My wife has a far better education than I do, and she's a good few rungs up the career ladder, too. Strong and intelligent women typically know what they want from life; they're already sorted and happy with their lot. So long as they see potential in you and you aren't a total fuck-up (i.e. you want to better yourself) then just relax and go with it.

As for not wanting to have sex... well, I have no answer for that. You weirdo.

turned out not so nicely, i mean all fine, kind of fun, i was expecting a bit more.
but this confirms my first suspicions. girls seems to be the example of classical venezuelan girl. after 1 month of dating maybe i will have sex with her. friend told me same thing.
it means i must focus my energy on other things, if this happens anyway, well -.- i can't care less.

I made an instagram account some months ago. At first I was using it as everyone. Just posting cool pics of places or stuff like that. After a while I started posting random artsy stuff or my bands music. I started being more creative with the titles of my pictures.
I'm not enterily sure to which level people believe everything they see and can't understand is real. I'm pretty sure some of my friends think I'm crazy (not friends but people I know) and one of my friends actually said he had another account where he posted more weird stuff just in case someone from human resources comes to check it out.

Is it greedy if I want 3 wives so I can choose which one I want to fuck?

If I feel like I want to fuck random girls when I go outside why should I force myself to be monogamous?

Having 3 wives would mean more income for the household if we all work

We had a Chinese foreign exchange student staying at our house for a while. He brought with him a dual sided gameboard. One side had Go on it the other had chinese chess. I found out I was pretty damn good at Go, tho I feel I suck at (chinese) chess. William, the foreign exchange student, said I was probably much better at chinese chess than most Americans, but I never got out of him why he thought that or if it was simply flattery because I only beat him at that game once. Guy was about an inch or two taller than I was, but his head was absolutely massive which is a possible sign of high intelligence.

I ended up beating a lot of people at Go as my relatives were over to meet our exchange student, including my uncle who is actually pretty damn smart, so that made me feel good. We won a game apiece between us.

Big head is a predictor of high IQ, big head for the ratio of your whole body is a better predictor of IQ.

IDK how smart you are. Hard to tell because you are always fucking around.

Eiffel tower security.
I was checking my pics from my trip to Paris some years ago and i remember being on the middle of the tower and thinking anyone who was taking a pic could easily drop by accident their camera and kill someone passing by.

What are the ramifications of someone experiencing time slower? That is, cognition is faster relative to everyone else. Let's say... 100x?

- You would have no sense of rhythm. 100PM would be the equivalent of 1BPM. Music would become a wash of sound - probably more soothing from what I've seen of slowed down music on youtube.
- You would have difficulty understanding spoken language. Words would be experienced as starting and stopping potentially minutes apart. This goes for production of language too.
- Everything you did would be a long-term plan. Each footfall would be a mind-numbing affair. You would probably have more control over everything you do, but less automation.
- You might need to micronap. Mental fatigue would happen that much faster, but you're presumably recover from it faster too.
- You'd probably have a very good memory. Everything you ever read will have been the object of a lot of focus. You will have had the time to elaborate a lot more on everything you ever do or see.
- You'd probably want to use one of those BS speedreading programs that present all words in the middle of a screen. While IRL the bottleneck for reading isn't saccadic movement, for you it very much would be. You could ramp the speed up so that you're finishing novels in minutes.
- The focus of your eyes would be a limited and precious resource. Like if you were in a movie theater but only able to see one square meter of the film at a time. To other people, your eyes would look to be in constant motion.
- Extending on the vision thing, it might be worth having a rear vision mirror attached to your head. It would take the equivalent of 30 seconds to check behind yourself, which would be frustrating as hell. You have nothing to do but model what you can't see...
- Your reflexes would be much faster. But not instant. Presumably for touch, you'd still need to wait for signals to reach your brain before you processed them at 100x speed. Likewise, you would then need to tell your body what to do, and it would take time for your extremities to receive the signals. I imagine it kind of like captaining a ship, you see what's happening, but it takes a long time to turn that tub around.
- Your subjective experience of pleasure and pain would be drawn out, which would presumably amplify their effect on your behaviour? From one perspective, because the distance between action and reward is so far apart, you may not pair action and outcome as well. But for example, if an orgasm lasted longer, or a hit made you euphoric for days instead of hours? You could be seriously motivated to pursue hedonism. So I can see people becoming a lifeless sack of depression, or an empowered hedonism machine.
- You could get really good at math. Or something. Anything that you can do in your head without external input.

I was in a room of about 10 people and someone told a story about a woman that was trying to grab her inhaler, but grabbed her gun instead and shot it into the side of her mouth, thinking it was her inhaler.

I laughed hard. No one else did. I wonder if my sense of humor is perhaps a little tooo dark.

check out this cool guy. what does jungian reason make out of him? his approach to sensation seems dominant and methodological, screaming estp. it is also objective but equally subjective and also intuitive in fact the subjective part is probably the intuitive one. i know an istp who has the same nondual approach to sensation but is not quite such a super advanced movement nerd, probably more advanced than 95% of the population though.

The guy has a bit of ENTJ in him I think. I mean he'd ESTP, no doubts there, but a bit of ENTJ I would say. He got that thing off the ground, not easy.

It is so sad and gets me so angry to see how Lithuania keeps trying to copy models of entertainment based on southern europe / latinamerican culture when they by themselves are great. And everyone is so happy about that Spanish tapa restaurant that just opened in the center, just like the other 10 around the city. And another Latino night at the Cuban bar. Wtf? One of the biggest disco places is ruled by Italian mafia and is sold itself as an international meeting place.
Truly multicultural and self genocidical.
Sad as fuck.
I can't stop thinking about their cold and trees and dream wooden houses.

I have 5 open on my phone. I used to have a few dozen, but now I try to keep them clear if I don't use them. Otherwise I'll lose track of why I've left them open.

I flirt with death
For one who knows
Beyond all knowing
And turns

In flames it rises
This sickly beast
One who has risen
And still rises,
Ever more.

So it was said...
Of times of old...
That the burning is behelden
Of all that is gold

Dost thou turn?
For he who spake?
Unto the entrace?
Of the lake?

(of fire)

What has occurred is of a brilliant splendour
Never known, until day's birth
That one who knows the ghost of ages
Has squandered all who fell.

this was sent from high above
a spirit who ne'er ends,
or tells to those of purest sight
of how to bend the light

Meh. It's probably important to not lose track of perspectives and objectives, and also to keep in mind the differences between mitigation, exacerbation and apathy when one interprets the information around Sinny's ban.

First, I'll accept some amount of blame for shit posting a bit and maybe thereby unintentionally contributing to making the forum not great between July and late December 2016; whether any of that fell within or outside of acceptable sub-forums/threads or met with acceptable parameters for frequency and content of shit posting, or to define how much aggro I caused against myself isn't my call to make.

I believe a lot of what you "said all along" between November and December 2016 contributed in a significant way to catalyze the outcry against Sinny which lead to her being banned. That is to say it seems like the action taken against Sinny was based largely on reactions to you and your conduct as it related to her. Tensions already existed, but you exacerbated them over the course of a couple of months. In short, you basically got Sinny banned in the first place by chasing her here.

Sinny's initial temp ban came with conditions: like 30 days without Sinny for the forum to be improved by less shit posting, some conditions for RB and TSR to contribute a baseline of meaningful forum output, something to that effect. So, by the conditions the only way to support Sinny would have been to shit-post-to-rule as much as the rules would allow to prove that the forum wasn't in fact better without Sinny. I'm more of a natural flow shit-poster, I don't like to have to shit-post under pressure and besides, what kind of conditions are those really? The permaban was somewhat of an inevitability so apathy won in my case as it didn't really seem like there was any point to fighting that battle. So yea, I am one who did nothing.

Your "defense" of Sinny seems to have largely consisted of some outburst on Dec 26th prior to your "ending" the "experiment" and pardoning yourself from the discussion (nay, the forum?). You didn't say a thing until the month after Sinny's ban went permanent, when you returned and just carried on like nothing had happened. If you wanted to say something against it then you should have spent that time doing something about it instead of hiding in embarrassment.

In the time since her ban it seems that you have required intpf moderator intervention more than once to undo embarrassing and real violations of Sinny's privacy on this very public platform from which you got her banned: some images and a chapter of "One Shades of Vanilla" which had to be removed?... and that's just on intpf. That is some profound psychological wrongs, dude, and you're apparently blind to it. Given the ease with which you make those kinds of bad decisions and perpetrate such conduct here it stands to reason you do it elsewhere online and IRL. The mind you use to control your online conduct is the same mind which you use to make your decisions in life and it speaks volumes about you as a person.

A beneficial lesson for you in self awareness might be for you to first think about the role you played in Sinny's ban and then think about how much collateral damage you have caused her since then compared to the amount of damage done by those who "did nothing" before you shift blame from yourself onto those who couldn't really do much for her in your pervy, stalky aftermath.

Further to that point, you posted a response to TMB earlier today about Sinny and then seem to have just recently edited it away; it's like you can't help yourself. So now I am replying to a scrubbed quote. I spent a while composing it so I'm posting it.

That post you just sanitized, like all that other stuff: happened at all in the first place because you decided to do it with your decision making process. What does that tell you?

Felt compelled to see what this Roast of Sinny was about. I just wasted hours of my life I'll never get back. I think maybe there's some nugget of wisdom I'll glean after more reflection. Now I really understand the phrase "it was like a train wreck you can't look away from."

Pondering "Least Significant Response" -- I believe that's a term used in a book I once read about training zoo animals and your significant other.

The thread managed to slip by my radar almost entirely. I was vaguely aware of its existence but I'd never taken the time to sit down and read through it.

Pretty entertaining stuff so far.

Had a spare few minutes during lunch to read it.

I see what you mean about the train wreck / being unable to avert your gaze.

Bonus points to Redbaron for making me belly laugh a couple of times. Some of his comments were absolutely savage.
