So I recently just got my first house I want to bring my childhood dream of having a half pipe in my backyard to life. Has anyone tried this? I've been watching YouTube videos and reading lots online but I was wondering if anyone had any first hand experience doing this. I can't build anything huge only about 4-6 feet high I think that should reasonable.

I remember someone saying on /lit/ that philosophers are the masters of logics the other day. Another person argued that knowing how to deal with logics facilitates critical thinking and therefore beneficial.

But how does one start with logics? I see there are many types of logic, so I am at a loss here.
If why I'm seeking this knowledge is important, then it is because I'm interested to find out more about critical thinking and reasoning. Where should I start?

Thanks and here are some shotguns for a wanky zombie apocalypse.

Yes, they are masters of rational logic.
Together with mathematicians.

And that's why they can't comprehend the chaotic thought, nor the random nature of the world of fiction and illusion that we live in.

I say this:learn logic fallacies so that you can use them to your advantage to beat people up in arguments. Beyond that, logic is more harmful then helpful.

I disagree with Nell Clabberpick. He's talking about rhetoric, not LOGIC. Rhetoric is an awesome subject though, so it's no loss if OP went off to learn that.

To learn logic, there's a few modes you can learn. First, puzzles. Puzzles are logic. But informal. The second option is to read introductory philosophy texts. These give you a better idea of what logic is, and formalizes it a little bit. Eventually, you could move onto advanced philosophy and formal logic. But the typical philosophy curriculum takes a few years to do this. That's too long IMO.

Or, you could immediately pick up an introductory math textbook on logic/proofs (Nell Demblewater's links are probably good). It seriously changed how I think. It doesn't give you superhuman abilities, it just slightly clears up your thoughts and gives an interesting way to approach arguments.

Sup /howto/, thought I would post this in Music first but that doesn't seem like the kind of place for learning instruments and all.

I have decided to spend my NEET time doing something worth while and I have always been into music so why not do that? I tried music early on as a kid but never stuck with it, I have a keyboard, drumset, guitar plus a bunch of other nick nacks. I have some basic books for drumming and guitar and a good bit of piano books from beginner to barely into intermediate shit but I don't have a huge amount of instructional material. I could get through everything in a month's time probably and be decently proficient.

So if you haven't inferred, I am looking for free shit. Preferably one big ass wall of text that covers metal, jazz and blues guitar. I am doing guitar first then I will take up drums after I am more into guitar. I would be greatly appreciative of drum shit too but right now I am looking for guitar mainly. I would like to master drums and be a good guitar player. Guitar I just want to play certain genre's and just be able to make solid work for my drums. I may take up piano/keyboard after I am well into drums and close to advanced with guitar to supplement my skillz.

I've tried the little tid bits here and there from a bunch of websites like freedrumlessons and youtube people and all that shit but it never teaches anything other than narrow focused things without any order or progression.

I'm not looking for places that have, "Hey check out this rudiment. Forget about the others this one is ballin."

Transcribing can teach you almost everything you need to perform really well, and the theory will speed up the process and offer you more than a pragmatic understanding of music. But the pragmatic understanding is usually where people don't spend enough time. Listen very actively, and listen to tons of music. Listen to your favorite recordings and know them well enough to execute all of it in your head. Singing can make you sure that you're achieving this. There are a few parts to the music you want to comprehend--phrasing, intonation, articulation, dynamics, and more generally cues and interplay. There are others I'm sure I've missed, and they are equally important.

You can't just half-ass your way through playing ideas, and you definitely DO NOT want to practice this way. It teaches mistakes. Your mind does not distinguish between correct playing and mistakes, it's more like mastering the probability of your mistakes. Slow things down until your execution is perfect, and you can be conscious of what you're playing, then turn up the metronome a tick. Never exceed your mind's ability to experience what you're playing. Slow down or practice something else if your mind tires. It's a rewarding way to practice and it prevents sloppiness which brings diminishing returns.

The strategy is to learn riffs and lines that interest you from artists that you like. Pause the track, write down the time. The more you can internalize, the more you train your brain to know how to play. Most modern music like what you listed is built on feel, and the theory and vocabulary is an expression of that. As you learn the vocabulary, you must absorb the feel so that later you can ask your brain for a feel and you get vocabulary. Make sense? The instrument doesn't exist.

It seems that some people learn very quickly without "chunking" or other short-term memory techniques.

Like they get taught something, and they learn it instantly. "Sharp-minded, or he's sharp".

Others, like me, take 3-4 times before it actually registers. Yesterday at boxing, the instructor was teaching us footwork and everyone else "got it" much quicker than me.


I've always had this problem and I'm wondering if it's just decades of mental laziness. I'm awful at comprehension and remembering what I read, when I copied stuff off the board I'd always have to look up again....I struggle with being taught or instructed..


So my questions are: Are there exercises to train short-term memory like lumosity, do they work? has anyone here had the same problem as me, and how have you dealt with being a bit slow, or is the whole situation just a genetic curse.

Same here, man. I used to believe that I could just force myself to be like everyone else. You notice a lot of responses in this thread are kinda vague, like "just be there in the moment, make sure you're paying attention", but aren't you already? Isn't that why you're there? I think we are all different, and some of us in particular just clarification before the brain sets the pattern for good - to theorize wildly, maybe there is a failsafe in some individuals, an evolutionary mechanism against learning bad behaviors on the go. Your brain wants to be sure this is how it is done.

Also, group settings can make or break learning for some people. While in karate, I suffered in the adult group classes, but once I paid a little extra or one-on-one, I excelled and continue to excel.

Do not put yourself down because you are not learning like the others. Any good teacher will see that you are committed and will take the extra time to train you. If your teacher becomes frustrated with your slowness, he is not worth your time.

Basically you want to achieve an internalized understanding through whatever means necessary. Your mind has to keep up 100% with what's going on or you will not remember it and you will not intrinsically understand it.

Go fuck yourself. Models are not prostitutes. (Though some prostitutes may claim to be models) Do you have any idea the kind of shit this causes? Both of the awkward stupid kind, and genuinely dangerous kind?

This is why models have to bring bodyguards nowadays. That and human trafficking. So fact is, if you accidentally try to prostitute a model, their boyfriend is coming up to shank you, and claim payment.

I love nerf!

What blaster do you have? You can just look up "nerf X mod" and find anything you wanna know. Typically: Springers can benefit from a rebarrel, air restrictor removal, stronger spring, padding and better seal. Electric flywheel blasters like higher voltage, rewires, and better motors/flywheels. Airguns like a rebarrel and overpressure plug. Nerf is a really fun hobby, especially if you love tinkering and messing with all the little parts and mechanisms. Find a group around you, smoke some weed and play nerf, it's awesome. Facebook is very valuable for this.

Guys, i need to become prime minister.
I feel like it is important to get a wide range of highly educated opinions on the subject. This is why i have chosen the venerable denizens of 420chan to help me in my work.
I currently have no job and have enough money to pay bills for 2 weeks. I can definately find a job pretty easy and i expect to find one in the next week.
Past that, i don't have a university degree and i did averagely in high school.
So now that you've heard what i can bring to the table, i feel like we should get into the nitty gritty of policy, promotion and party politics.
When i assume my position as prime minister, i will grant you all citizenship for your hard work in our righteous fight.

When's the next election? DO you want to rise through the ranks of a major party? Or do you want to start a party? Maybe you can run with a small party just getting its start?

Does the pirate party have any seats? That's odd if they don't. The land of Kim Dotcom? But not one seat? I know he's a major douche, but maybe you can bilk him for some money for your campaign.


PROTIP: Look for seats in parliament that are being vacated next election cycle. You don't want to go against an incumbent, especially if you don't really have any qualifications.

consider going for a town/city position first. Councilor? Remember it's all about getting your face out there. Go door to door, shake hands, greet people in the streets, talk to them. Find out if there's some specific issue that's in their craw. Don't want X development happening? Don't want Y tax? Look for a simple issue, not something complex like fixing schools or transit, or making property values increase. get a simple issue. Fix it. Be responsive to your constituents. BAM! Now you've got a political powerbase. (this also works with the parliament seat).

Getting a political base is the most important step. If you can do it outside of the major parties, then grow that shit you might be able to form a minority government down the road, and be prime minister.

Although if all your connections are in an area that's heavily one party, then you should just try to rise through the ranks of that party.

Here's what you've got to do:
Go to New Zealand's Colosseum building located in Wellington (also called the behive).
Enter through the front gate, where you'll be met by two national guardians who'll give you a choice of weapons (i'd go for the short sword to counter Key's current great sword technique).
First you'll have to qualify to face the current prime minister by defeating 10 traditional maori party warriors, 5 Labour red guards and the initial two national guardians.
Once you have defeated all of these opponents the real challenge commences.
Death battle with the KEYSTER.

Godspeed op.

You can't be prime minister without going to the elite schools of NZ (wherever your elites go) and networking with other elites with law degrees, well typically.

You start by simply organizing and getting elected to a low level position somewhere, then scheming and plotting your way to higher power through cronyism and corruption like every single other country.

The Obama method is a good strategy. Go to top school on scholarship, join every club in the school and become leader of it, join a church but not because you're religious but because you wish to learn the public speaking game of the guy giving sermons, after your law degree go into "community leadership" which helps you network into some sort of low level political position, then get all your old Yale or Harvard friends to help you raise money and hire them as campaign managers, become POTUS or grand chancellor of new zealand or w/e.

Anyone here ask for a raise or promotion?
What about job interviews when discussing pay?

How do you raise your own price without getting shut down by an employer?

>Job Interviews
Let them offer a number first, you counter by offering a decently higher number that's not outrageous, then you meet in the middle. Ever haggle at a fleamarket? Same principles apply here. Say you appreciate the offer, and counter with as much as you think you can get away with. If the interviewer/company is worth their salt, they'll usually budge a little in your favor. Do some research beforehand on similar positions in different companies within the industry and draw your numbers from there.
>Asking for a Raise
Go into the bosses office, explain the good work you've been doing and your many positive qualities, and ask for a raise or to renegotiate your salary. If your boss personally sees the work you do (ie a smaller company or family run operation), you've worked there awhile, and you haven't had any fuckups lately, it shouldn't be too hard. At a larger corporation, where your reputation and connections are actually more important than the quality of your work, cozy up to your supervisors or other important people in the company/division (bosses will talk about you to other bosses if you've been making the rounds enough) for a bit (few weeks/months depending on your current reputation) before you ask for it.

Also, school yourself to read between the lines when people talk, if you haven't already. And learn to read body language as well.

My boss periodically just walks up and tells me I got another raise. And all i do is not be stupid half the time.

usually you have reviews with your manager every 6 months or a year or so.

at the end of that review they should have explained how you're going etc, this is the time you ask them about getting a raise.

i know not all companies work like this, but this is how office working usually is.

The raise is tied to how well the review is for many employers.
