Have you ever been into outdoorsy stuff? Either now, or at some point in your life, have you ever been into fishing or hiking or biking or camping, etc? I remember going on long hikes through the mountains and other trails with my dad. I always liked that feeling of adventure. Looking at abandoned houses, walking along-side roads, biking downhill the sidewalks of a busy bridge road, aimlessly wandering through densly wooded tunnels. The quiet of woods can really create an exciting tension. I'd like to do that more often.

Pepper spray can be useful, but there's a lot of good options that you should have regardless. Lots of tools can actually be very useful for self-defense. A box cutter is very good at slashing arteries and making deep cuts, but you wouldn't want to stab with one. If you do decide to take a knife and ever have to stab somebody, a good tip is twisting the knife as you take it out. This causes a lot more damage than a regular stab wound. A small, but powerful electric torch is both very useful on its own, and capable of blinding people in daylight. Even a sturdy screwdriver or big hammer can be effective. A steel umbrella with a pointed tip is also great. After you use pepper spray, what are you going to do?
I forgot to mention this in the first post, but you might want to bring a windproof lighter.
I talked to a Russian I know about this and they said if you ever wanted to do something like this over there, you would need to know the language fluently and be very cautious becuase there might be guys around every corner waiting to kill some tourist and take their stuff.

Some of my favorite childhood memories are going down to the creek with my sister and catching frogs. Although there's nothing like that around where I live now. Still, I like to go on 3 AM walks, it's nice and quiet and cool and the streets are empty, never really got any trouble from anyone except skunks and cops at that hour.

Weirdly enough, it seems like a lot of loners/weirdos (like me) are into cycling. I guess something about being alone with the constantly changing, often cool scenery is attractive to those kinds of people. There aren't too many abandoned buildings near where I live unfortunately, but there are some pretty cool areas that I like to take photos of.

Thanks, I remember trying to convince sti to shut down 4chon by explaining he was running an Israeli honeypot by creating an army of anti-semites (consisting of teen boys with autism and other mental disorders) which would spam mainstream sites with "KIKE!" thereby alienating anyone sane and give the ADL a reason to exist and reinvigorate them with donations. Sti closed the site less than a day later. Frankly a few years too late to save a lot of nuts who had their lives ruined by /new/, like that 21year old manchild Smiley or that Rockerz88 guy from the UK who wound up in prison for murder.

How much do you think people are tied down by their nature and what do you think it is? To me, human nature can be boiled down to a few thing: prioritizing self-interest, duplicitous, self-justification, craving validation, pushing others down to uplift themself at every opportunity and taking the path of least resistance
These are the things I think people are naturally inclined to do when they're left to their own devices. While people can occasionally override these core behaviors, few people can do so consistently. The majority of people will always follow their nature. Those who don't either compensate for their restraint through other forms of hedonism(self-righteousness), or are actually committed to their own ideal. How hard do you think it is for somebody to be the latter? Can anybody do it, or are people only born able to do it?

The argument was that people can't be selfish becuase they are social. I pointed out that those two things aren't mutually exclusive becuase people are social out of their own interest to a large extent.
>your whole point is
That's not my point, and it's not what this thread is about. People do occasionally do random things out of empathy for others. I never said they didn't. This thread isn't about whether human nature is evil or whatever, it's about what human nature is and how easy it is for people to act against it.

well heres a problem
Can't we say anything humans often do is human nature? Like how would we even build a definition that could set the framework to determine what is and isn't.
Whenever people on the internet argue about "human nature" they all seem to have wildly differing ideas of what it is and how "humans really work"
Hmmmm… I suppose the best way I could think of defining it would be thing we do without thinking about it, like things without a premeditated analysis of WHY we are doing it, when the only thinking spared is for HOW to do it..
Hmmmm no perhaps thats a bad way to define it, idk

>Can't we say anything humans often do is human nature?
No. There's patterns. That's how you set the framework. What is constant? Look at smoking. That's both not something humans inherently do or need to do. People do have the tendency to become addicted to things that make them feel good, but the ability to resist temptation is something anybody can consistently do if they have enough self-discipline. It's in a person's best interest to avoid giving in to temptation(controlling your emotions, not abusing drugs, not procrastinating). Whether or not a tendency to be addicted is part of human nature is subjective I guess. Even then you could consider the motivation behind addiction to fall under prioritizing self-interest(which could mean feeling pleasure). It's probably one of the more extreme forms that that behavior takes.

Look at something like Communism. Human nature will not allow for a system in which each part exists to service the whole and every part is treated equally. People want more for more work. Why should doctors be given the same as factory workers? Why try to make something good if I get nothing more out of it? Why should I try at all if it makes no difference to me? Not only that, but people in, "organizational positions", will always make sure that they're more comfortable than everybody else. Some people who are passionate enough can circumvent this, but not millions of people squirming around and trying to push themselves to the top of the pile over the course of decades. It violates human nature.

I don't really know if it's harder to train self-discipline or train true selflessness. The latter is just totally irrational to me. Maybe i'm projecting, but I don't think anybody is capable of wrapping their heads around why that's something you should aspire to.

Do you see any holes in my list?

I suppose you could say cultural norms are what goes against human nature or rather controls and regulates it in a way, it determines the ideas of right and wrong.

 No.19061

>>19060
Yeah, but even cultural norms are a product of human nature to an extent. Every culture, no matter how isolated, has some things in common. Social classes, formal/informal conduct, clans, familial power structures, religion. Following rules set in place by other people is also part of prioritizing self-interest.
I guess curiosity and classifying are another part of human nature.

This is a thread for posting all the weird experiments that you think of. Here's one that I've been thinking about. A child(6-9) with few preconceived notions is given two pigs (that look similar) to raise. One as a pet, and the other as food. The way they are raised is different. The pet is kept healthy and lean while the food is fattened up. The pet has a collar with a p on it, and the food has a collar with an s on it(this part is just an arbitrary way to distinguish them from the start so it could be anything). After the pigs are fully matured, the child watches the pig raised for food be slaughtered and then eats it. What do you think their general impression of pigs would be after? (I know it's a bit messed up, but it's just pretend).

Meat's meat and a man's gotta eat.

 No.19013

>>19010
I think as long as they knew that this pig was food from the beginning he wouldn't care. Kids learn what is right from their enviroments, so if false seperations - e.g. "That's not a pig, that's pork", "that's not a girl, that's my sister", "I'm not like them, I won't die" etcetera - are forged early then they stay (on an emotional level rather than a logical one).

I don't even know what kind of meme is this. This imageboard is slow as fuck, and practically a walking body. Then some heat developed on the yndd board and everybody is losing its shit over it. Even sei said to tone it down, over literally nothing. And you have this shefedora complaining about him not being censoring enough.

What's the deal with this site? It's even more of a safespace than tumblr at this point.

I feel like what you guys want is just a board of Yes-Men that won't even dare to raise their tone even a bit.

Social interactions=//=Society

Just that makes your whole tryhard dishonest wall of text worthless.

I was talking about social interactions and treating them as such, as in how capable you are of interactions, societal problems, politics and which race commits more crimes is a completely different thing.

You changed your script by talking about why the crime rates matter, and accuse me of doing the same thing, do you want to be racist that badly?

This isn't the place for that, whatever you do, please struggle a lot, try very hard, in the end of the day that is the truth and won't change, you still lose friendo.

Alright you seem to be having some difficulties following this conversation. I'll walk you through it.
You implied it wasn't acceptable to be racist since it would be having the same level of reasoning for social interaction as a donkey.
Then I showed you that it is not only acceptable, but a good thing since it can statistically save your life due to current day crime statistics.
Then you started to try to move the goalpost and focus the debate on whether I was refering to society, social situations or whatever.
Then you had a mental breakdown and kept ignoring everything else and declared every other argument worthless because in your little brain you're pretending it still was unclear whether I was refering to social interations, society, or whatever. As if that was relevant to the debate of the validity of racism as a whole.
Keep up the strawman.
