Her fleshy skin under an umbrella

My penis stands erect proudly
AHHHHHHH uhhhhhhhhh . So i thought to myself as my testes buzzed with a deep masculine energy, the seminal ducts opening and filling. The luscious bountful nether bussoms bounced hypnotically, suggesting a vitality and smoothness that made my penis leak cum. As a ruddy apple does shine on a summers day, did those beauteous orbs transfix mine eye fr fr, yet their beauty lay not in the eye but in the penis which is the source of all propelling energy. "

Have you read posts here that were really brilliant?

This thread will probably be more suitable to people who have been here for a few years.

I'm not talking about jokes, ironies, humor and memes but about really serious posts, posts that showed great verbal aptitude and imagination: poems, or pieces of prose, or literary criticism, excerpts from work in progress or philosophical comments, etc., which, if they were inside the pages of some famous author's book (rather than on an obscure anonymous forum) would be considered brilliant and hailed by critics.

I've seen threads where Anons ask the best of /lit/ and the only things that are posted are memes and jokes. I'm not talking about this kind of thing. I'm talking about something that really struck you as out of the ordinary.

Do you ever find an original post by someone here, an excerpt in a critical thread, that showed something like a possible sign of developing genius?

My BPD art hoe step sister recently went in to the psych ward for a very half hearted (pills) suicide attempt. Upon release, it became her entire personality. She wears drab colors, dresses in vintage styles, and carries around a beat up paperback of the Bell Jar prominently at all times. She is attempting to write confessional poetry now and it's very cringe.

She is very impressionable. Is there a poet or writer (will have to female, she refuses to read men) that will bring back her zest for life?

>I am very very very glad you don't work in counseling any more.
disagree. I cured you, the OP and another guy in a few sentences.

BUT SEE this is what Reich figured out in 1920 and look what happened to his work.
>this made a whimsical philosopher
>before the spacious world, his tub prefer,
I already moved out years ago I should have mentioned but while my mom and I have slightly improved in our interactions, my sister stayed the same. It also doesn't help that my buddy/roommate cannot visit my parents when my sister is around because he's essentially a more alpha, unhinged version of me. Otherwise visiting my parents in Canfield, Ohio is a cakewalk (even if my roommate comes with) so its really just my college educated career feminist sister that causes occasional drama every now and then. Should mention she's married and I'm not and is also college educated and I'm not so she likes to hold those things over me as well. Mixing my roommate in there would cause problems because he would give her a piece of his mind and she would get extremely offended.

I started reading Neuromancer a while back, and I'm not sure I really "get" it.

I liked some of Gibson's short stories, especially Burning Chrome and Johnny Mnemonic, so I thought Neuromancer would just be more of the same in a longer form, but it's actually been kinda boring and I've put it down and picked it back up a couple of times.

I feel like for most forms of niche media, there's always one or two exalted pieces that are guaranteed to be excellent - Blade Runner is this to cyberpunk movies, Akira and Bubblegum Crisis are this to cyberpunk anime, and so on - but I'm not sure if Neuromancer is this for cyberpunk literature, or if there even is such a thing for cyberpunk literature outside of a handful of short stories.

I could be wrong, I'm only roughly a third of the way through the book, so it could get really good all of the sudden and I might change my tune, but is this a normal first impression to have about Neuromancer?

Clearly, that was my point in mentioning it.

I'm glad opinion has been roughly divided 50/50, I thought I was just a retard for not instantly getting it but it seems like everyone agrees it's not a light read but still excellent. I'll have to keep reading
Excellent post anon, touched on everything I like about it better than I ever could.

Hey /lit/. My favorite word is "microcosm."
I learned about it in middle school, and it's my favorite word because it's the perfect word to describe, metaphorically, the small version of something big. Like if I described /lit/ as a microcosminc version of the editing world.
Another favorite word of mine is "exaggerate" because I learned that one in second grade and learning such a "big word" made me feel accomplished.

I like "quibble"
exegesis because it sounds cool
My great uncle taught me this word when I was a kid and we’d play a game of going back and forth with rare words trying to stump one another on their definitions. I thought it was interesting how it describes something no other word seems to.
i like the word kaleidoscopic. baudelaire used it to describe lovers of modern life in his essay about constantin guys and it really struck a chord with me.

I mean, I doubt it's wrong. He lists himself as the co-founder of the Alt-Right Corporation on his website.
bump for question
not him but I heard pic related gives a decent overview as well as a reconstruction of rites of the mithraic mysteries
Used to know him online and we broke over a difference of opinion
Do you mean Roman or Persian Mithraism because they're pretty different? For Roman Mithraism, Britannica has a good encyclopediac entry by Reinhold Merkelbach. Brittanica tends to be much better than Wikipedia since it is normally written by one scholar. I think Roman Mithraism had more Neoplatonic influences, but there were some minor Persian influence.
The Mithraism of Persian was more like Indo-Iranian polytheism that preceded Zoroastrianism. Richard Foltz argued that too.

What kind of person reads not one but 2 books on basic-ass high school-level algebra, an entire book on geometry (instead of just reading about function graphs and conic sections in an algebra book), an entire fucking book of proofs and set theory (even though an ordinary person should get the gist of what sets are and how to write proofs within less than a week), and after that read a book on real analysis before going through calculus?

It'd probably be more useful to read Euler's Elements of Algebra and Hardy's A Course on Pure Mathematics than most of that redundant and hard-to-find shit.

Literally who?

The sissy hypno is a hypnotic trance technique used to create a trance like state which can then be exploited.

The sissy hypno is a way to take the subconscious mind through a trance. The way it does this is by asking the subconscious mind a question. A question which if you answered would cause the subconscious mind to go to a different state.

The sissy hypno works by asking a question that makes the person want to stay in the desired state.

Make sure the person is in a trance like state. Then ask the right question that will transfer the thought to the person’s subconscious mind. Then ask the right answer to the question.

This is called using “Hypnotic Suggestion”. This can be done by looking at the person’s eyes for a few minutes. You can then transfer your thoughts to the subconscious mind of the person. You can do this by counting. If you count slowly to 10, then say a statement such as “You are doing really well, if you want to be better just say 1 2 3 4 5”

Then when the person says this statement. It transfers the thought to their subconscious mind. Now you can ask a question about the person’s desire state. A question such as “Have you ever thought about being a sissy?” If the person says “Yes” and wants to be a sissy, then they have transferred the thought to their mind. Now you can ask another question about your desired state.

Now your goal is to make them say “Yes” or “Yes, I have always wanted to be a sissy”. It doesn’t matter which it is. The key is to make them say “Yes” and if they do then you will be in the desired state.

The reason that you ask a question such as “Do you want to be a sissy?” is because by doing this it is very possible that you will get them to say “Yes”. If you get them to say “Yes”. Then you can make them say “yes, I have always wanted to be a sissy”.

Just feminine and masculine.
The ancient Romans and Greeks would designate you as feminine if you took dickings and masculine if you gave them. Sometimes a brojob is just a brojob however.
