I noticed some robots were talking about their futures recently in the FTDDTOT, particularly as it relates to careers, and so I figured a thread might be in order to talk about: wageslavery experiences, strategies to deal with normalfag coworkers, career recommendations, application advice, tips for escaping (or maintaining) NEETdom, suggestions for switching fields, or anything related to wageslavery at all.

To get it started I suppose: I've been lackadaisically applying for a variety of entry-level office jobs for a couple months now, but I don't have any hard preferences really. I also was considering a law enforcement related career, but I've got to look into that more. I was wondering if robots had any career suggestions, positive career experiences, or just any thoughts/knowledge about different fields of work that might be good for a robot.

I thought I could lay my head low at work and get through it with no drama but that goal has failed and I realize how much I dislike interacting with people due to social awkwardness and will never get good at it.  People think I'm retarded, my trainer is a nigger who gets angry too fast and every time he asks me to fight I can't control my adrenaline (am caring less now about it and I feel my balls waking up again so if he asks me again I'll fight him however), sassy black woman who gossips exists, one co-worker used me as a fetch boy and I couldn't say anything because I wasn't doing anything (slow period) and the new guy, another guy has taken a disliking to me for no reason I can see and someone else I never spoke to glared at me, and someone stole something from me I was borrowing from someone else.

At least for me they called me personally and told me why it was they wouldn't give me an offer. I got several rejections on the same ground that my social retardation wouldn't suit well with their company. Luckily I live in welfare land that has all kinds of retard programs and got a government subsidized offer for now

It's not really a currency in the traditional sense. 
To keep it short, it replaces the middle man in real life transactions or bureaucracy with smart contracts. It's based on reputation, smart contract nodes need to use the Chainlink token as collateral, if they give shit data then that node needs to pay up reparations. Simple concept, but hard to do properly because of the 'Oracle Problem'. 
Point is that they are very interested in this tech, and it's gonna be implemented anyway because they push it hard, they want their 'Great Reset' at all cost. Just wanted to give frens a chance at making some money while they turn most of the world population into actual cattle.

Sounds like my country. Pensions and other elderly benefits are such nice tools for buying legitimacy in the form of votes, eh? Too bad that they - among other things of course - cripple the country. Though given that my grandparents were/are about as bad as >>1647s, I can see why some just chooses to neglect or even break up contact with their elderly ones saying "they got pensions anyway, they can take care of themselves" or even shoving them into elderly care instead of taking care of them personally.

lol, you must be very a utistic. What you describe is your mother trying to make your living situation as uncom fortable as possible, in the hopes that it makes you move out. It would also be unsurprising if your stepfather told her to do it. This is the way nor mies com municate things to each other, they don't do it directly, because that would make you an ahole, which is the opposite of how au tistics com municate.

An example of this would be if you're visiting someone and they have satisfied their need to socialize, they will start dropping hints they want you to leave, rather than being upfront about it, because they''ll think they're being an ahole for doing it. This kind of com munication doesn't work well with au tistic people.
Fucking hell, I would have dropped ricin into the water supply years ago or orchestrated a carbon monoxide leak. Fuck all of that to the highest degree. People NEED privacy and some measure of control over their own lives and environment. I dunno if you get any at all away from your hall-house, but I hope you do.

You poor bastard. You're also not alone, so don't feel too alienated or isolated. There's people out there going through similar things and it sucks every time, you're 100% justified in acknowledging how shitty that all is. You're right in that it's not normal or healthy, and it shouldn't be happening. I'll flip off your family in spirit for you since I dunno what else to do.

Related, I have a pal over in Turkey who has a similar problem; there's a culture of machismo over there and men are expected to solve their own problems and just deal with it. The guy is physically frail and dependent due to medical problems, so he can't go anywhere despite the fact that they abuse him in a variety of ways. They also control where/when he's allowed to go and any spending he does, even if it's for something like meds he needs to be in less pain. If he tries to leave the house he pretty much has an anxiety attack at some point, then his parents beat him when they find him or he gets back. He can't go any

I finally get around writing a post for this book, there have been a few obstructions and distractions in my life but the main reason I am so late is because I am a lazy nigger, inexcusable >>3649.

I had a harder time getting hooked onto this book than onto the last one, in fact, I did not get fully invested until the last chapter or so. The characters are disturbing and hard to identify with, because they are all over the place, especially the main character, but as I understand it this book was written in part as a psychological examination of the real arsonist, who was presumably mentally ill.  Besides that, there are a lot of Zen concepts woven into the text, which  at times only add to the confusion. Mishima sure knows his stuff when it comes to his country's past and religion, yet he is not a Zen master himself and so he examines these concepts from "the outside" or "from below". I have read  that these Zen text are designed to be a mere confirmation of the experiences and superior knowledge for the initiated, but for the uninitiated they are empty of meaning at best and confusing at worst ,leading the reader astray , no matter how carefully and hard the latter studies them. 
If I am not mistaken this seems to be general theme with Mishima, a theme that he has in common by Nietzsche, by whom he was heavily influenced, that is, the rejection of metaphysics and yet the presence of the dimension of transcende

This is one of the best books I have ever read in my life, and it perfectly captures the fleeting feeling of having witnessed a fragment of beauty, and in the recent and very modern realization of its ephemerality and the intrinsic nothingness that lays behind all sense impression. Or rather, if "The Sailor who Fell from grace with the Sea" was the mindless prattling of an egotistical boy, this is the matured realization of a man who has witnessed enough of himself to be capable of speaking of the things he felt he needed to say. Mizoguchi's description of the grey waters resonates with me, his obsession with the dark and turbulent and how he describes it as the source of ugliness and of his power, is a nearly perfect description of compulsive, ugly beauty. He witnessed the ugliness and the fragility of the world as it was taught to him and was caught up in that sensation, both in the sense of what lays underneath it and by what is draped over reality. Well, I can repeat myself, but it the book really does make sense to me, and I understand why he decided to do the things he did and what he felt about the golden temple. The end of chapter eight, which I feel is the climax of the story, that which set the tone for the rest of the story to follow and from which the story is made complete from.

This is a book I will have to get back to after some time, when I make deeper connections to what parts of the story is supposed to connect to what.

Just from the connection of Kashiwagi with the prostitute, and how the prostitute itself lived in her own world and understood the world only through her own logic, unaccepting of anything else and any other interpretation, Mizoguchi is Uiko, the girl who died in a rebellious fit of passion along with her lover. Kashiwagi doesn't attempt to escape his ugliness, he wishes to accept it, but is terribly insecure about it nonetheless. The prostitute doesn't mind sensation of flies resting on her flesh, she's already rotten, she doesn't mind evil and instead tolerates it. Perhaps she feels like a saint when she does so, as if it is a good deed, like how the girls feel when they coddle and care to Kashiwagi and his clubfeet. Mizoguchi was charmed by Kashiwagi and as if sparked by his intepretation of the world, decided to form his own, and he did so and he did it it with the purity spiraling, zealous passion that converts to religions all share. The way he described the feeling of Uiko betraying her lover, as if she once again belonged to the community, reveals the ugly nature of the community of which he belongs to. And it's not like what she did wasn't in itself ugly, it was, but it nonetheless showed the spark of "metaphysical resistance", the attempt of the Sosei to break away from the temple, to break away from the community and return back to ugliness but in doing so revealing once again the source of beauty.

It is about time for the next book.
This time it is only a short story rather than a full fledged novel, so maybe a few so far uninvested robots will give it a read. Either way I am looking forward to reading more of Mishimas work, even if this club should die or if it decides on reading something else. 
Also since this one is so short and the cinematic adaption is so special (directed and starred by Mishima himself), I think it is justified to add the movie to this iteration and the subsequent discussion. You can view it on https://yewtu.be/watch?v=bO-w-cn-pJM.

Shi'as are alright, and I've never had any problems with Jordanians and west side Syrians despite being Sunnis as their civility comes from genetics.  As for the Afghan situation I just hope the Hazaras, Tajiks, and Wakhan Valley & Nuristan Aryans will be safe.
All these fools on here talk of sex bots in their techno-fantasies (conveniently seeking out escapism from this depraved society rather than facing its problems and dilemmas head on) and essentially scapegoat Jews and others for problems inherent to modern technology and modern society, yet you have the nerve to imply that I, someone who has read many books (and other mediums) on the future of society and risks facing it for a long time, am naive. Surely, I know less than the authors themselves in regards to their specific niches, but this is one of the few things where I really excel in my knowledge.
I am not so naive as the people on here who think that collective revolution is possible. I NEVER implied that average IQ people or people lacking fervent beliefs or that people without a strong drive to do certain niche tasks and focus on certain things or that normal people or even many on here would be the ones to make a difference. I don't think that revolution in the future will be anything like how it was before.
And I have never implied that defeatism is a special feature. If anything, it is rational for the vast majority of people to be defeatists because the future will not be their fight, and on the individual level, the "masses" really are powerless compared to the elites in charge and to modern society as a whole.

You're smart, I'm stupid and blind, when confronted against a power that I have no immediate method of understanding and no method of resisting other than to wait for its death, there's not much else I can do than stand in wonder over how terrible it is and how pathetic I am. I'm not insane, I don't continue to strive despite there not being results, nor do I strive when I see no hope. I'm irrational and will live and die in wonder, hoping that there's some redeeming force beyond my understanding that will help me.

Thankfully this has been weeded out for a few years now. Posts have revolved around general discussion about what we've been up to, what we like doing, and how we've been for a few years now. MGTOW however, seems to be a nonstop bitchfest. To be fair, some of them do actually live up to the group's namesake and focus on themselves.

Most of the discussion was contained in the whg thread on the old 8/r9k/, but the interest seems to have died down. After all, you can only have the same three debates so many times. Most of what was said wasn't enlightening anyway so it's not a great loss. I prefer it this way.

I was thinking that for this creature in particular that there would either need to be some easily digestible source of energy in the tree or they would need quite the stomach. I also think that it would be interesting to see how other animals react to the change in landscape from a tree (or trees) being felled. 

I also plan to add some sexually dimorphic features to the creature. Something that could be there for the sake of looking cool that the males have for display, competition, and sometimes functionality. Be it colors, a mane, a crest, or some other feature.

Created a predator with the previous ideas. The sketch is once again mostly body shape, but this time the lines are a little less chaotic.

The concept was a persistence hunter that inflicts massive bleeding wounds which eventually kill prey larger than itself. Its adaptations to fit this niche are
Anticoagulant saliva
Serrated claws and teeth
High stamina
Vents on body that open to shed body heat

The creature's body is very expensive and requires a lot of energy to power which is why they hunt such large prey. 

As for its hunting tactics. The predator tries to inflict bleeding wounds on the heels and belly of the Tree-Eater whilst using its agility to try and avoid its lethal tail. For this, it is best that the Tree-Eater is running and therefore the predator comes with a blood-curdling loud screech for the purpose of intimidating its prey into a chase. 
The predator will cycle between attempting to bite and falling back to give chase until its prey falls in exhaustion from copious blood loss.
Whenever possible the predator will go after sick or younger Tree-Eaters. However, very young calves are not a meal worth risking their lives for.

Might add some sort of sail for extra heat regulation later. Again these sketches are mostly the basic anatomy.
[Hide] (93KB, 683x852)
I'm gonna probably try out a few designs but here's a sketch of the first
Made vents into flaps which can be flared open to both exhaust heat and make the animal look bigger for intimidation and possibly display. Tail will also likely be sail-like in nature (like the spinosaurus tail) for heat regulation and a larger silhouette.

I'll experiment with other designs later.

>it would be interesting to see how other animals react to the change in landscape from a tree (or trees) being felled.
In most cases, the stump and the log get invaded by bugs and other critters. However, it's pretty normal to see other plants using the stump to grow over. I live near a forest and it's always fun to see those things. However, in a strange world like the one you describe, anything could happen.
The design looks almost perfect as it is. It seems like a giant monster that is friendly enough to not kill you at first sight.
I am more inclined for the crest if I had to choose.
It looks pretty good already. The tail and sail might give it a semi-aquatic vibe, but it would look more imposing.
