How do you deal with pathological liars? Have you ever encountered any?

I've been lying pathologically for most of my childhood, and stopping doing so was the best change I've made in my life. I believe it passed to me from my mother, who to this day lies a lot.

However recently I've encountered a person who lies very much. It's a girl, we've got normal friendly relationships, neither of us is romantically interested or anything like that. However, for the little time we talk, I can see that she lies quite a lot.
Those lies are mostly about achievements or something similar. I don't care about them, it's just an indicator for me to not get surprised next time when she gives a different answer when we touch this topic. Something like that.

But I wonder how people deal with those. Do you call them out? Do you try to avoid the person or do you continue to communicate normally?

If I don't really have to spend much time around them I just ignore them or tell them they're full of shit.

If I'm stuck with them like people I work with I just avoid talking to them.

Had this one kid in school who was one. Mostly just made fun of him, tho he was a friend; banter I guess. Said his Father was a millionaire , he said he bought him self a Jag at age 14 for when he was 17, things of that nature, along the lines of materialism. Mostly he liked being the center of attention (maybe why he didn't mind the jokes), when a good friend of mine was in trouble with the law, he was spreading and talking about it to people who really didn't need to know. I was not keen on him post that.

Depends on how you know, and interact with the person. If you can't joke about it then that person is better being cut off.

I encourage it, in a way. I don't call them on their bullshit, but I let them tell me their ridiculous stories and tell them I believe them. I try to make them say the most ridiculous shit possible because I know they will embarrass themselves real bad at some point. I don't need to be the one making it happen.

 No.5489

I've only met one true pathological liar, and it was a girl from school. We were kids, so nothing of importance was ever discussed. She would just make stories up constantly. I never had a problem with it, and I would listen to the bullshit she had to say, but I wouldn't ever consider being friends with someone like that.

I recently saw this video
https://youtu.be/eh8U6SLvNgs

I realized that I never learned how to play chess. Nobody in my family plays it anymore so I never bothered to learn. But after reading so many amazing stories about this game I really felt urge to learn it and get decent at it.
Couple of days ago I started playing regularly on lichess; I'm still really bad but it has been lots of fun so far.

Do you have any interesting stories about chess? Any tips for beginner like me?

Lichess is great web server if you're looking for matches, also has a few tutorials and learning resources too.

Go is worth looking into too - since there's so many possibilities in any particular board-state there's much less memorizing openings and strategies; it's more about good pattern recognition.

I never really learned to play, but I have this old chess board I bought at a flea market as a teen. The angles on the pieces are so sharp so it's kinda difficult to catch them on picture, looks better IRL.
Figure maybe I should start to learn to get some use out of it.

There's something peculiar about falling asleep as the first rays of dawn start peeking in through your blinds. A feeling of guilt, mixed with comfiness, as you fall asleep when everyone else rises from their slumber. Unhealthy, but acceptable in reasonable amounts.
It happens to me far too often, though…

When do sushi rolls usually fall asleep? I don't doubt there are other people here with wack schedules.

Wake up early and sleep early.
Waking up early is fantastic, enabling you to be productive, finish what was left behind or just idle about.
Sleeping early on the other hand is the opposite, even if not troublesome most of the time; well, one thing is troublesome and that is somnolence! Specially because it is not perfectly consistent, it attacks as early as 21:00 or as late midnight, drowsiness is very uncooperative.

I usually intend to be in bed, with the lights off, by 11pm. It usually takes me half an hour or so for the thoughts to stop whirring around and the waters of my mind to still. On bad nights I might be up until 1am, having done nothing but lie in the dark.

When I was a teenager I used to stay up a lot longer, especially on weekends. At that time, I was also using the computer a lot more; nowadays I read instead. It's odd how I just cannot conceive what I did all day on my lappy in those days, because I now get bored of browsing fairly quickly.

I can't do it, gotta have total darkness, tape over lights on electronics, everything. I used to work nights and had to totally block and insulate my windows to get any sleep.

I work during the day now and wake at 4 on weekdays so I'm not rushed and 6 on weekends so I can sleep in (for me anyway) and still get up early enough to exercise without encroaching on my day or run errands before people get out.

I work the graveyard shift (00-08AM).

I handle it well until ~6:30AM when I start getting a bit tired, sometimes sleepy in case I'm performing easy tasks.

It is easy for me to fall asleep at 9AM, waking up later at 4PM.

It felt weird at the begining, but got used to it in a couple weeks. Honestly, until I graduate and get another job, would not switch to another shift.

I barely buy anything that is not food, but recently I bought Burzum t-shirt - first piece of clothing in like 4 years. Mind you, I am not homeless or dirty - I just treat my stuff well and my style is eternally good.
Anyway, felt nice when I wore it, but quickly I realised that consumerism has started to corrupt me.
I tamed it, I had to stop buying pencils, rubbers, stuff for work, but it was all for my mental wellbeing. I also threw away my desk, couch and all chairs. I could gladly say that unlike filthy casuals 'things' have no impact on me.
Everything was good, 'till yesterday. I got a present.

Consumerism is about buying things you don't know, often to only throw away afterwards whilst then searching for new objects to buy, to 'consume'. Saving money is good, but if you don't even give yourself a bed to sleep, what is the point? Why refuse a bed but keep a computer? Learn to tame your idealogy and keep them realistic instead of being a pushover.

Hello frens.
I want to add a new imageboard to my repertoire. Why should I stay on this board instead of the dozens and dozens of other semi-dead boards out there? I am not even really sure if imageboards are worth it at all right now, since all of them seem to be dying.
Sincerely

I don't think it matters if an imageboard lives for a long time or if it soon will die. I think the transiency of these kinds of sites creates a nice atmosphere, even tho the site might be gone tomorrow, and you'll never see the same kind of posts from those sushi rolls again. It is almost a relief to know that what happens will only be relevant now, and will never become an emotional burden in 10-20 years like my lame posts on phpbb style forums that are still there reminding me of all the flamewars I wasted time on.

I do miss sites like 199xchan, but I don't mind that they died, and there are always new sites to post on. I don't really mind it when a site lose their entire db (like lainchan). Having posted on imageboards for so long, I expect each and every thread to go 404 soon.

Certain sites have totally embraced the transiency and are only open for posting a few times a day, and do complete wipes after a few hours of being open.

Imageboards are always short lived, since threads drop out from the end. If you value shortlivingance that much, you should probably think twice about joining 4chan/b/ again, since it is that quickly, that your post can be lost after minutes (it was like that, when I last visited that site).
You mentioned a few other imageboards. I have one imageboard, which I visit frequently and am looking for a new one. If you visit all that other imageboards (like lainchan), it is quite much time you need to invest in order to enjoy them all. I am not sure if I want this.

I like your approach, sushi. It blows my mind to think of just how alien something that simple has become to me.

I usually try to weigh the options in my decisions and fight my instincts. It's like being a contrarian towards yourself because you always go against your gut and you always reject your first choice.

I'll take a page out of your book for now. Chances are things are at the forefront of my thoughts for good reasons, maybe I should have a little faith in my subconscious.

>Descriptive writing
Reminds me of a passage from Terry Prattchet's Discworld #2 book The Light Fantastic:
"The point is that descriptive writing is very rarely entireliy accurate and during the reign of Olaf
Quimby II is Patrician of Ankh some legislation was passed in a determined attempt to put a stop
to this sort of thing and introduce some honesty into reporting. Thus, if a legend said of a
notable hero that 'all men spoke of his prowess' any bard who valued his life would add hastily
'except for a couple of people in his home village who thought he was a liar, and quite a lot of
other people who had never really heard of him.' Poetic simile was strictly limited to statements
like 'his mighty steed was as fleet as the wind n a fairly calm day, say about Force Three,' and
any loose talk about a beloved having a face that launched a thousand ships would have to be
backed by evidence that the object of desire did indeed look like a bottle of champagne. "

Don't be afraid to let your reader's imagination and/or autism spectrum disorder do the work for you! You can get way more flavor out of mere voice than you can imagery so why not let the reader have some fun with the details? There's only so many things that you can compare weak legs to but there's all kinds of different people who could try to describe the same thing:

>Billie's shit is fucked all the fuck to hell and she should probably see a doctor regarding said fuckedness at sometime within the near future.


>Billie is looking like a 200lb. bag of oof and she's walking like one, too.


>Literally everything about Billie is currently either gross, pathetic or all of the above. It's hysterical.


Treat your story like a conversation. How people respond to you affects how they respond to what you have to say. Your personality is just another tool of communication and it takes an engaging narrator to relay an engaging narrative.

Let's tell each other about strangers doing things that made you feel comfy.

Recently I went to the laundry room to clean some clothes. I like to hang around in the laundry room and play video games and keep an eye on my clothes because I don't trust people not to take them out of the machine.
Sitting at the table was a man wearing a US Marines (or some other military) cap, I guess he was a veteran but I didn't ask. He had a creaky old laptop on the table and was playing a Christmas themed hidden objects game.

I don't really know if comfy is the correct word, but like a year ago i was in the bus with my earphones on, and also the guy sitting next to mine.
I play piano since I'm a kid, and Ihave the habit of start playing an imaginary piano every time I'm listening a song that I already know how to play it. I think at the time I was listening to Bach, so I was trying to resist the temptation of doing that autistic shit, when suddenly the guy next to mine started doing that exact thing. That was odd af, so I decided to do it too, thereby we spend the whole trip (about 30 minutes) playing our imaginaries pianos, and sometimes laughing, but we didn't talk to each other. I kinda regret it cause he seemed pretty based.

What do you rolls do to keep a healthy body and mind?
I find that one of the best ways to do both consistently is training yourself in martial arts. An good starting point for learning shaolin kung fu: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9f8zb_QKZEo .

One of the ways I train mentally is by doing regular meditation. If you are new to meditaion and don't know what style to pick, start with Zazen - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LL2XUTeoUsM (turn on captions). Some other techniques that I like are detailed here: https://tricycle.org/magazine/tibetan-buddhist-meditation/ .
I think it's important to learn to feel what the chinese call qi. That does not mean you have to become religious or convince yourself that it is anything more than a phychological phenominon, but the reason I think it's important is that it can be used to reach a meditative state even when going about your daily activities. I'm not an expert, but I think a good method is to sit or lie in a position that allows you to breath with your stomach (make sure to remove constraints like belts), close your eyes and take slow, deep breaths with your stomach. As you breath in, imagine energy slowly rising from the base of your spine to the top of your scalp, and as you slowly breath out imagine that energy sinking from your scalp back down to the base of your spine.

Forgot to mention, in keeping a healthy mind it is also important to keep it active rather than just meditating all the time. Set up a routine of studying, mental arithmetic, playing music and whatever else.

Physically: I hit the gym twice a week. It's annoying but helps to keep me at a reasonable weight.

Mentally: Talking with people on irc is my main source of human contact since I'm mostly alone and work and have no friends. I'd probably go nuts without it. The gym thing also helps mentally. I went full Hikimori for a while and that really screwed with my head. Thought my figs were coming to life and trying to kill me in my sleep. Getting some fresh air really helped with that.
