  1. Omg, elementary school

    So tomorrow I'm going to be a teachers assistant in class 1c. 25 kids or so:eek: Not sure how I ended up in this situation all of a sudden, and I have never done anything remotely similar in the past, but I'm excited and pretty dang nervous. I don't think I know kids. I haven't been around them...
  2. We all stand together in this (flowery content)

    In great contrast to a post I just read from banned member Void, but may easily have been written by someone else on this board, I just came to think about the importance of feeling appreciated. I have for the most part, and in some sense still live with, the belief that I am self-sufficient...
  3. Social scenario cases

    Hello, I have some questions to you all concerning everyday social situations. Small issues in and of themselves, but that, if handled inappropriately, can add up to people having unfavourable opinions of you. As can be read in the Galateo, silence where it would be proper, or customary to...
  4. Thread split from drunken club: Schizotypy and thin boundaries

    Technically, I'm not drunk (only a few beers), but I'm pretty drunk on my emotions. In a mostly positive way I may add. Have any of you experienced a sudden shift, say, in your middle twenties from being, over all, non-emotive to start experiencing frequent bursts of intensity of emotion? (it...
  5. Chess on Chess.com

    Hello I'm looking for some sparring partners on chess.com, so I thought this could be a thread in which we posted our chess.com usernames along with approximate skill level so that we can add fellow forumers to hook up and play. In case you aren't registered, I guess I should say that it's...
  6. Machine functionalism as an interesting starting point for understanding altered states?

    I will be trying to present an idea that just hit me. I will first have to explain what functionalism is, then machine-functionalism, and, lastly, how a turing-machine operates, before I take elements of this turing-machine and (mis)use it for my own twisted ends. The idea is severely...
  7. Poll: How many sexual partners have you had?

    ^ Not really anything to elaborate on apart from perhaps mentioning that the poll is not public (people won't be able to see who voted what).
  8. Poll: Headache

    How often do you get a headache on average? I find I'm having them quite often and have been for the last 3-5 years. It varies between getting it every day, every other day, once a week and once a month, and I'm getting pretty sick of it. When I start feeling it coming I'm in deep trouble if I...
  9. MDMA

    A friend of mine got hold of some mdma in powder form and wants to snort it. Does anyone have any experience with it? Any information he should be aware of other than making sure of drinking enough (but not too much) water?
  10. To catch a predator

    I'm not into reality shows, but I happened to stumble upon and watch a few clips of this show that apparently went of air in 2007. Just to explain briefly what it is for those who don't know; it's about catching men wanting to have sex with underage girls. The setup starts with a...
  11. What wikipedia tabs

    are currently open in your browser? Here is mine: Alfred Korzybski Democritus Diogenes of Sinope Discordianism Miguel de Cervantes Nikolai Gogol Pythia The Seven Who Were Hanged (I may end up regretting posting this as I usually already have too many wikipedia articles open at any...
  12. For those that likes old books (pics)

    I have beside me a really old book I want to share with you. As you can see from this picture, it says "prentet i kiøbenhaffn/af Lorentz Benedict 1564" or something of that sort. Which means, in danish, "printed in Copenhagen by Lorentz Benedict 1564". Lorentz Benedict seems to have been...
  13. Chat Box

    Lets try this thing (NOW).. you know, just for once to see whether one actually can have a real time convo there. Click on "chat box"
  14. I never thought I were going to give this a go!

    Ok. This is probably not a big deal for people not knowing me, but for those that happen to do irl this is something that will provoke reactions like :eek::eek: I'm going to start working out. More specifically I'm going to start up with a training program called "starting strength" which...
  15. Budgerigar

    Yesterday, for some reason, I thought that I just had to get a budgie sometime in the near future (isn't the first time I've wanted one though). As always, when I get something on my mind, I spent yesterday and today frantically reading everything I could stumble upon on the net about these...
  16. another tune I made

    Gonna re-upload when the mix is somewhat better.
  17. Am I missing out on something? (dance)

    I have never been into dance/trance, but I'm always trying to get into new types of music. This time though, it isn't just the music, it is the whole thing as I don't think dance music can be experienced just through the sheer act of listening. So, I was wondering, have any of you ever been to...
  18. Language complaint

    (This doesn't really apply to english natives, but input appreciated regardless.) (First paragraph is just ranting) I hate my language. I can't stand to read it. It makes me want to puke and it fills my head with disgust. I really think it's an ugly language and one devoid of any elegance...
  19. Trying out a different world view

    Hello, I guess I'm a scientific rationalistic nihilistic atheist (boring, right?). One of the things that I, at least at present, dislike in humans is their tendency to become more and more fixed to a certain "reality", wether it's a catholic-, atheistic-, absurdist-, conservative-...
  20. trance/dance tune

    School assignment. I am supposed to make a 1-2 minute long dance/trance tune. I'm not well versed in this style (as a matter of fact, this is my first attempt at making something decent in the genre), but know that some of you are, so I'd like to get some feedback. This is what I've got thus...
  21. The social club

    This club is sorta like a midday hangout getting a cup of coffee at a random coffee bar. *takes a sip of his latte, looking around for someone to talk to, feeling in the mood to get to know some new, interesting people*
  22. Don't watch this

    This footage ranks pretty high up on my "most revolting video clip" list. If you don't have a hard stomach, you should avoid looking at this. It's a pretty brutal execution video made by russian neo nazis. What makes this particularly nasty, imo, is the sound. You'll understand which ones I mean...
  23. The room

    Anyone seen this masterpiece? I haven't yet, but I sure will. Incredible acting, and the script, which happens to be written by the main actor and director of this film (a brilliant man obviously), is truly a intriguing work of art. Some clips: YouTube - You're Tearing Me Apart, Lisa...
  24. Eye operation

    The last couple of years I have often experienced headaches, but didn't think too much about it and didn't really notice any change. I think it must have been a gradual thing because I didn't really notice any difference. The last months however, I have noticed that I really do have trouble...
  25. time spent in front of computer

    This is time spent in your spare time web cruising, forum lurking/posting, youtube, wikipedia, tv-troopes etc. Work does not count. I'm really a net addict and I'm shocked every time I ask myself this question.
  26. Super Meat Boy!

    Is now out on xbox live marked place, wii's counterpart and on mac/pc. I bought it from xbox live 4 days ago and haven't done anything but played that shit since. There is one question you need to ask yourself before buying it; do you like platformers? Yes? Then you should get it now. This game...
  27. Allan Holdsworth appreciation thread

    It's about time. He's name hasn't even been mentioned on this forum (with the exception of me referring to him in one previous post). He is an improvisational- , harmonic- , genius. If you haven't heard his music before, you should. If you are a guitar player and haven't heard his music before...
  28. Real Person

    I don't feel like a real person in my social interactions. I feel like I'm giving orders to an empty shell (that would be me, my body, "me"). I have always been the observer... I still am.. the only difference is now I'm a social active observer. I give orders to my "self" which do what it's...
  29. I'm cool

    Yeah, I am. Let this be the thread to portray high self esteem, arrogance and yeah, just generally to be superior to everyone else. Fuck you, I know my shit and you don't, capiche? - I'm sexy, you are not - I'm intelligent, you are not Your all just a bunch of ugly, scared shitless, shy...
  30. poker HUsng challenge

    Hey, I feel like getting some intpían challenge to improve my HU game. My bankroll is a tad limited, so playing the 10 dollar buy ins would be preferable. We could take a series of perhaps 5-10 matches if you want. The poker site is full tilt. If anyone here is up for it, either pm me or post...
  31. Something I put together

    A tune. The mix became completely destroyed when the vocalist exported my tune after recording his singing on top. But anyways.. you get the idea. In the middle it's supposed to be a vocal/bass unison, which isn't done yet.. so I just added some cheesy vocal synth to do the job. Everything...
  32. Alex Machacek - 24 tales

    is now out and available on itunes among other places. This record is a must listen for everyone fan of experimental music ranging from jazz/fusion/classical/funk/prog/rock/Zappa and everything in-between. In case you didn't know, Alex has composed everything on this record over a pre-recorded...
  33. Facebook

    I'm drunk and bored, so I decided to start this thread. It's about facebook. For everyone wanting to increase their friends list to create an impression of a wide extending social network, saying "I'm not really an anti-social person. I have friends and I have my facebook friends list to prove...
  34. 'A Universe From Nothing' by Lawrence Krauss

    I really enjoyed this lecture. (no, it has nothing to do with creationism) So, in case you haven't seen it: YouTube- ‪'A Universe From Nothing' by Lawrence Krauss, AAI 2009‬‎ I guess this will be more of an interest to people not too well versed in cosmology, but it's probably well...
  35. DAMN YOU Mrmolen!!!

    I have been playing attack of the sprouts the last couple of hours thanks to you! OMG, I was sooo close so many god damn times to beat your lousy score of 1560. Sigh, so much screaming, sweating, cursing + a sweet headache and painful hands as a bonus. To top it of, that ape of a game developer...
  36. High stakes poker MBTI poll

    Pretty interesting. The op asks high stakes poker players, or long term winners at the game, to take the mbti test. The replies speak for themselves. Oh, and you should play poker :P http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/19/high-stakes-pl-nl/personality-types-poker-pros-774716/
  37. I need help

    A tune I'm working on, stylistically, perhaps similar to some of Devin Townsend. Haven't added vocals. Anyways, how would you continue this tune? I can't for the life of me picture how to follow up. Any input on that? It doesn't have to be so specific. Maybe how you picture it proceeding in...
  38. anime

    just watched my first anime series. From previous recommendation threads I deducted that deathnote definitely was something to watch... so I did.. I blew through all episodes almost in one sitting (bad timing considering I'm supposed to study for exams).. and I am now wondering if you could...
  39. The first family of satanism

    Edit: Maybe this should be moved to the Philosophy & Faith section? This is a must watch. This is a debate where Bob Larson interview Nikolas Schreck, founder of the werewolf coven. They talk about everything from the history of satanism to general history, christianity, good and evil, and...
  40. Forum rules

    I stumbled across a forum with some really appealing forum rules, and/or mentality. Maybe they would seem too harsh for some, but I like the way it promotes intelligence and thoughtful posts, and are quick to punish the opposite. Some excerpts:
  41. intelligent character

    Hi, movie recommendation needed. I have always loved movies that contain eccentric, highly intelligent characters - breaking social norms/expectations etc. the last one I saw must have been from "revolutionary road" with the character michael shannon. YouTube- Revolutionary Road Scene I want to...
  42. Reality seemingly less real

    I can't sleep, so I decided to start a thread. I don't know what's happened to me, if anything at all...I have always been absent minded, but not like this, or to this extent. It seems that the world around me is more distant in nature then what it used to be... don't know how to explain it...
  43. "You know you're an Intp when"

    Couldn't that thread, or threads like, "you know you're an xxxx when" simply be renamed "you know you're a human when"? It seems like most of the listed things in such threads is something all humans can relate to, not just the intp, or *insert mbti type*. Perhaps (bleeding) obvious.. but when...
  44. Theory

    This thread was created to provide Electric Wizard with some basic theory. I figured this would be too long to post in private messages, so I posted it here. Maybe someone else might get something out of it... and I'll be happy to take it further or answer some questions. Lets take some scale...
  45. Groove time!

    Pump up the volume and listen to this: YouTube- Marcus Miller - Live Under The Sky '91 Marcus miller is awesome. Groove kicks in at 1.23.
  46. This forum contains

    WAY too many sub categories. Why not just have 2 or 3? At least not 20+ I mean, I am constantly getting lost in here not knowing where I posted what.. easy to lose track of different discussions you are involved in etc. Is it because there are so many members here that all these sub and sub-sub...

  48. Music/psychology/?

    I am trying to open up for many different trains of thought here. Take your pick. We all know that music is capable of transmitting powerful emotions in the listener; To a large extent being able to provoke certain kind of emotional reaction (sadness, happiness etc.), hence it's huge...
  49. death sentence issues

    YouTube- dexter johnson gets death sentence I am well aware that reading youtube comments makes you think lesser of humans, but I was pretty astonished by the nature of 90% of the comments. Does it reflect the perspective of the general population? It certainly does in the youtube realm. I'll...
  50. Cigarettes

    Yesterday I decided to go cold turkey after 6 years of over a pack a day smoking. 6-7 hours left of my first smoke free day since I started. But man, it's hard... hard to even imagine a life without cigaretts. But I am not weak, and I will not let some silly substance control me. I hate...
