The problem of too much free time (let me tell you what to do)

Time is the currency. If you can afford to be bored, you’ve won at life. Take up art (probably painting because if it’s crap you get to call it modern and act smug) and Stoicism and enjoy it. Bakadesuyo is a blog that takes all the research findings of social science and presents them like a normal person.

You bump your head on the dopamine ceiling thanks to the hedonic treadmill but you need to seek out challenges and lower your novelty threshold.

I took a look at a little gander of my digital library to recommend you some titles (aside from Meditations and Seneca and the rest of Ol’ Reliable) to pick your brain over;

  • A Guide to the Good Life – the Ancient Art of Stoic Joy
  • 501 Challenging Logic and Reasoning Problems
  • An Incomplete Education
  • Big Ideas in Brief
  • From Success to Significance
  • How to be invisible
  • Practical Duct Tape Projects (you laugh but you’re curious)
  • Show me How – 500 things you should know…
  • Steal Like an Artist
  • The Defining Decade
  • The Design of Everyday Things

Yes it’s alphabetical and I am lazy. I’m sure Amazon can recc. you some modern Stoic stuff but I can’t vouch for it unlike Good Life. Go to a bookshop and spin around a few times and see what looks good.

Also, do what I do; dive headfirst into an obscure random topic. Something completely out of your comfort zone and difficulty level. If it puts you off as Too Hard, read it. Today I’m reading about antiques, patina and gilding. I have no idea what half these words are.

yup damon ian somerhalder vampire diaries hot duh yes uhuh

Never bored though.

Who do these guys think they are?

Short post. I was doing my usual scan and I came across this;

omg shut up stupid dumb idiots argh ahhhh hiddleston facepalm deep blue sea

Title says it all. You don’t have to read it, it’s an example of the mindset.

In Britain, we have the common retort, a rhetorical question Who are you? when somebody without qualification and status begins to get ideas above their station. It’s supposed to act like a short, sharp verbal slap, a reminder that no, you can’t do everything, quit trying. The politer version you’ve probably heard is mind your own business. Now, I’m hardly one of those people staunchly against self-improvement, but we must recognize that the sexes are not, in fact, equal, and therefore, a man can no more lecture women on what we “should” do, than we can lecture men.

In essence, they need to back off. The backlash is happening and we don’t need them nor want them. Clean your own house of the fake MGTOWs and bitchy misogynists who want excuses and sex slaves before whining to us about your list of ‘demands’. We owe you nothing and vice versa. If we’re so bloody terrible and practically Satanic (if you read the article he makes out like we’re all lolloping Liliths ready to steal your sperm and make demonic hellspawn), you won’t mind leaving us the Hell alone, will you? Act in accordance with your beliefs. Like a man.

First issue: you require moral authority to give anybody moral advice, anywhere on anything. PUAs have negative moral authority, they are an immoral authority, from a traditional perspective. Wtf.

Second issue: you’ve never been a woman. OT: I was listening to a Clarey podcast and they started speculating about female orgasm problems. Aside from being incredibly rude and one sided (as if the majority of men who have the same don’t cause it by their porn use), I would never claim that sort of objectivity on a subject which has not and can never affect me, like Erectile Dysfunction. It just seems like they’re taking all the stereotypical, historical male issues and trying to maintain psychological distance from it (that’s called Cognitive Dissonance, kiddies) by kicking women and saying it’s our problem and blaming us and demanding we fix the (often unisex) problems while they kick back and do nothing. That’s called projection. You see, men aren’t rational beings, humans altogether are not rational beings, but men are incredibly gifted at rationalization. As we say, they could sell sand to Arabs. Doesn’t mean you need sand. Rhetorical skill is a negative in a world that values results.

Third issue: A traditional life takes decades to build. You can’t just hop off the carousel and change your mind and think you’re a suitable candidate. This is why Roosh’s ‘Poznan Institute‘ pisses me off, aside from the legal issues of aligning yourself with a European city state, when they’re against doing that without their permission (I would bet money he doesn’t have legal approval and this jibes with the general ignorance of PUAs when it comes to local law, see my post on PUA filming and London law).

Fourth issue: insulting much? Do I need to go into this point? Pretentious? Shallow? Hm? Aren’t we adults here?

superman drinking give up nope

But when women give men girl advice, they look down on us. Works both ways, bitches. Either each has a legitimate opinion on a discrete list of topics, or neither of us has.

Fifth issue: Beware of Little Hitlers. Anyone who seeks to control the lives of others is doing it because they cannot control their own. In the case of the Roosh cult, he wouldn’t DARE lecture them on male issues as if they’re personally responsible. He will never blame men. I challenge him to do a single article where he spends the entire thing blaming men for this Patriarchy dissolving, because women sure didn’t have the political power to destroy it. He spouts the same Polyanna It’s Not Your Fault BS that Oprah, Jezebel and Cosmo do. He simply switches up the pronouns.

For example, from that article where he lets loose his anti-white inner Muslim (it always comes out eventually, he wants to cover up beautiful white women with sartorial sackcloth), here’s the first line.

The structure of mating is determined by women, not men.

Then women are the powerful, dominant sex. Logically the one who sets the tone has the power. Second paragraph;

Unless men control women, they are at whim to what women want.

Oh, they want it both ways. Like the fucking feminists. Women are so weak and stupid we can control their lives. Uhuh. But they want to believe they’re secretly better. That’s got a name, it’s a bloody conspiracy theory. Matriarchy keeping you down. You was Kangs! You built the pyramids! Muh dick > your bodily autonomy, but respect the law because it’s best for everyone!

It is quite literally retarded. It isn’t even wrong. How many do you wanna bet believe they can win arguments purely on the basis of being male? Like a Man Card and oop, they win. Like the feminists who say This is why we need feminism? How many of these spergs probably call themselves rationalists, because they read a bit of LW and got a B in maths once? Cos that’s where all the atheistkult people went. What sort of dipshit appeal to authority is that anyway, like the losers who put MGTOW in their screen name – to harass women online? Sure, you don’t need women, you sure seem to need our attention though and we’re sick of it. You promised to leave us alone now actually fucking do it. Go. Walk out the door. Just turn around now, cos you’re not welcome anymore. Identity politics needs to hang in a gibbet so we can watch it rot. You go off and build your castle (from your keyboard apparently) and see how many women still avoid you despite all the trappings of outward success, not because you’re a man or the system is against you, but because they see you, as a toxic personality, and we avoid the feminists with the same too. Women are the emotionally intelligent sex. Mindfucking is our game, that’s our mode of interpersonal aggression and dispute resolution. This is pathetic meddling like the SJWs crashing the AVFM conference. You’re just like those normalfags. Traditional people don’t need you because we’re self-reliant and genuinely independent. Quit with the megalomania Savior Complex.

The manosphere is deteriorating in quality, the logic has fluttered out the window.

Feminists hate anyone who fucks men, including other men

We have the same reaction to you as the lefty atheists who claimed to be Islam experts overnight after the Paris Attacks, trying to lecture us on what it “really” is and how it “should” be (Hume spins). Your opinion is invalid. Your opinion does not count. You can have it, but nobody will listen to it.

Notice they’re suddenly trying to hop the r/K fence? No. It doesn’t work. Ks have standards. We guard our borders. It’s like they’re switching to saying Pro-Family but have abusive ideas of how a family should be led since their fathers did such a cracking job with them… (you’re not a King, you’re not always right, you listen to your commander in chief and if you make that whip noise seriously you’ll only attract dull co-dependents), it’s a power-trip fantasy. They’re White Knights. They want to save us (traditional) women and we’re the type that, by definition, don’t need help.  Go save a ho, Captain! We don’t want what you’re selling, you can’t buy in with us that easily. They don’t even want to be fathers, they find the idea of fatherhood deeply repugnant (r-types gonna r) and think it’s all the woman’s business. If real Kings can play in Palace nurseries, so can you. You take responsibility for the life you make. I figured out their deal, a while back. I didn’t want to write it up but they actually have a fetish. It’s called an impregnation fetish. That’s why they go on about female rape fantasies (which don’t exist, see post), as projection from their own, yet again. If the woman actually got pregnant they’d run like the little bitch cowards they are, the apple from their own deadbeat absentee father’s tree, while talking up a big heap of bullshit on Patriarchy and how important fathers are. Talk is cheap. Stick around for two decades making a meaningful contribution to society without deferring your agency to the opposite sex or pretending like your little brain controls big brain and maybe people will begin to respect what you say.

You wanna do God knows what on your own time, with your own money, in a way that doesn’t affect me whatsoever?

looking for a fuck to give loki thor 2

Go ahead. I don’t care. You be as degenerate and filthy as your nature compels you. That’s open-minded and that’s tolerance. It’s your soul, your karma, your own life you’re ruining. In fact, I’ll enjoy the show and laugh when it’s called in. People get the life they deserve. You wanna make the wrong choices, don’t go crying to us, Grasshopper, we’ll leave you outside to freeze come winter.


You start trying to control free people’s lives like they’re your fucking slaves and you have any rights over us? Die. It’s a human impulse and right to be free and I honestly hope there is a Hell for preachy people like that.

i hope you fucking choke love heartbreak

Going about it in the sneakiest, r-typiest way too (propaganda) just shows up what they truly are. Deceptive rats, which are an r-selected species. Mind your own business, fix your own life. Butt out of other people’s and sort yourself out.

Video: The Truth about Islam

I saw this when it first came out but forgot to post it. Something seemed off. Stop giving them chances. They’ve had centuries. Leave them to it. If they can’t become civilized in their own countries, and I doubt they ever will after this much time has elapsed (HBD genetic factors too) then to hell with them. They’re approaching a 30-year drought, let Malthus pop their bubble. All they care about is domination, it’s the literal etymological meaning of their religion, To Submit, and the single way to achieve that is by demographics. Wake up, West. That’s what all the rape is actually about (or they’d rape their own women as much).

Cut off foreign aid, send them the bill for all the help we’ve given them over the years and flip them the bird on the way out like men.

Video: STEAM is not STEM

The first time I heard this I thought it was about the video games platform. Some type of joke.
They’ve been trying to do this for a few years actually, I heard about it when they first tried it on and everyone in a real Department was giving them serious side-eye because it came just after there were rumours about a funding cut to their arts departments. What a coincidence…
We all know what it’s about – the Valley trough. They want some of that sweet, sweet VC funding. They see billions and multi-billion IPOs and think that the barrier to entry is simply saying Me too! These are the douchebags hiring people to program BS apps nobody wants. The ideas people actually implement them, that’s their mistaken attitude talking – having the idea is simply the first step to its execution. We have a name for them, though – “non-technical founders” and without technical skills, or worse, a disrespect of them and disdain at the idea of learning any, they get none of the in-industry respect.
There is a shade of SJW entryism (they’re actually turning on the rich Jews by calling them white male oppressors in hiring decisions) but that’s a minor point. It’s mostly about the cash.

The only addition from AN art that would make any sense is STEMP, with psychology aka largely neuroscience. 

I know how that sounds.

pause stop wait what is going on confused da vinci demons leonardo

Hear me out.

The majority of Fortune companies are taking on board psychology findings anyway and it trickles down from leadership psychology (duh) and the likes of Greene’s Power book to the embodied cognition of uniforms (and why labcoats are white, encouraging moral behaviour) to the neural substrates of introversion (aka no you can’t bring them out their shell with team-building quit trying). Look up how Apple design their buildings with psychology in mind for proof this is already in effect. Ever since Ford, ‘scientific management’ (a psychology theory taught in occupational psych) has been quietly turning the wheel of capitalism. This is why we have the rules we do about working hours, clocking in and all this other BS designed to increase unit worker productivity. The worker isn’t supposed to like it. That’s because it works.

Aaron hates psychology though (mostly the clinical side tbf) so I doubt he’ll look into any of that.

Not to mention, if you got to know many scientists (all STEM), aside from finding a surprisingly high rate of secretly religious people (very surprising) you’d also know most scientists, especially the Big Names, have an artistic hobby. Practically all, it isn’t even uncommon. Engineers doing beautiful sketches, mathematicians who compose, biologists who take up taxidermy, whatever. These people have ideas, they are artistic and it’s deeply offensive to suggest they can’t be, that there’s some barrier in the high IQ technical mind preventing them. It’s basically comparing them to Sheldon Cooper.

FYI Never compare a scientist to Sheldon Cooper unless you wanna die.

The scientists are smart enough to know you can do both, but art doesn’t pay the bills. They self-teach and that’s what the official art people want to cover up. They can usually do it to a higher standard of quality than is required in Art Academies, ironically. There is no politics. Honestly, ask to see examples, I think you’ll be impressed.
