            You're right, the more someone wants to have children, the more likely they are to be a dumb Black person.

            I mean, who the frick is moronic enough to think living vicariously through someone else is actually extending your life?
            You'd have to be a christcuck, mind-uploading homosexual or a similar kind of brainlet to think that cope even makes sense.

            >Black people have lots of kids! Haha im not a Black person!
            It's not an IQ test because of correlation, its causation. This thought that you don't want kids is not an organic thought you concluded from first principles. It's a mindset planted from the same channels that made you start a funko pop collection. It shows you're easily influenced, aka not an independent thinker, aka low iq, aka goy cattle, etc.
            And look around, who exactly is "winning" in your self diagnosed high iq paradise? You and your mechanical keyboard? Or is it the >Black folk?

            >living vicariously through my kids; extending my life; etc

            Wanting to have kids is just an instict which not everyone has.
            Why would I want a kid for any sensible reason?
            There is no lives purpose or any other bullshit reason to breed.
            The people that say people must have kids are israelites that are afraid there will be less wageslaves to work for them, their motivation is a pure greed or/and fear of change.
            The system based on providing to elderly when they retire is a pure pyramid scheme and I don't even expect that I get my share back at the end of life from the system. The system is not fair from principle, because at that age there is a huge change you die before you get even a portion of the money you poured into the system. It's better to have money and save and invest yourself. It's a system made to extract maximum value from people without making them oppose it. They think that it is for their own good, but it's tailor suit for skillless wageslaves that won't amount to anything in life.

            There is no point of having kids if you don't feel the need. If you die you die. You don't become your grandkids kid or whatever.
            If the reincarnation is real then it doesn't matter if you had a kid, because you might even reincarnate as other race on the opposite part of the globe or even as an animal (buddhists believes) which further makes it obvious you don't need offsprings to reincarnate. If it was a requirement the monks wouldn't be able to achieve nirvana ever, because they believe that it's rather impossible to achieve that in one incarnation and monks don't have sex (based on their way of life).

            There is nothing as close to an npc like a person that does what other people say that he must do without thinking for themselves.

IQfy cares more about cameras and gear than photos, nerds who get into 3d printing spend their days tweaking and rebuilding their shitty chinesium printers and obsessions over parts and control software and only incidentally print useless trinkets. Woodworking is full of gays who have never made a decent simple shelf but are obsessed with collecting wood shop power tools. Linux users are obsessed with working on the shitty os itself rather than it being a functional springboard to other tasks. And so on and so on.

          I don't think you do because it's the entry way into a hobby.
          Most of the things you make at first in most hobbies will be utter shit because making something worth a damn requires hundreds to thousands of hours of raw practice and is still very difficult even after you put the work in.
          Meanwhile, fussing over your equipment is easy and only requires a relatively small time investment and money and you still get access to the community so most people will just fuss over equipment, presumably while they develop the skills to make something good.
          The problem is that most never graduate from being equipment plebs to being talented and there isn't much you can really do about that except be exceptional yourself and help others down their own path.

    I can hear the difference between FLAC and 320kbs Mp3s on shitty laptop speakers (proven in a double blind test with an accuracy of 10/10). I have a few pairs of $1000 headphones. I have some fancy modern speakers and some top of the line vintage speakers. I don't use any strange cords, but I do have a massive DAC that draws a frick ton of power. I feel I can hear things that others cannot hear. All that being said, you quickly reach a point of diminishing, if not non-existent, returns. Caring about you audio equipment is totally fine, but after a certain point, the differences are so marginal that it makes NO sense to keep pouring money in.

          why would digital equipment do this? it would be considered flawed or broken. everyone moved to digital beginning with the inventions of PCM recorders and CD because analogue recording was absolutely cancerous. audiophiles are so fricking moronic that they have no idea how their tonnes of their favourite records after 1980 were originally recorded onto digital tape.

    I admit I went down the rabbit hole to an extent...

    I bought various amps an sold them and ultimately bought a 1600 euro amplifier which is pretty expensive for me. I looked into separates too. Ultimately I concluded, it sounds the same as the 80 euro amp in my home gym. I can't tell the difference. And trawling through some of the audio forums, a post on audigon stuck in my mind... Some guy was asking about the Yamaha A-S701 amp. And some other guy replied that it's "A real step up" from the older Yamaha A-S700 amp. I looked up the difference between them, I looked at the circuitry of them both, the 700 and the 701... They just added a fricking digital input. That's it! It's the same amplifier. How could that be "a step up"?! I looked further into amplifiers and found that Marantz and Rotel have basically been selling the same fricking design for decades but in a new fascia and with added/removed ports at random. Like sometimes their amp will have a subwoofer out, sometimes the new one won't etc etc. What a pile of fricking ass.

    I sold that 1600 euro amp at minimal loss. Im sat with el cheapo speakers, cheap DAC and a cheap amp. Works fine. I did not fall further into that rabbit hole. The only things that actually made any kind of a difference was adding a subwoofer (decent difference) and changing the speakers (meh difference but there was one).

    Don't fricking waste money on audio shit. IT IS ALL SNAKE OIL. Cheapest thing that works. I had to find out for myself though.

        and a lot of that million went directly into literally useless shit like rebuilding the "audiophile room"'s electrical system to be separate from the main house. that work generates 0 value and can't be resold.

    I always do blind audio quality test with some of these audiophiles and they never hear the difference. All of these "tests" I have written highest bitrate and cheapest hardware that they did think is their "better hardware and bitrate". Highest bitrate that they can't make difference in blind test is 128 kbps. Everything lower than that and somebody notices and checks if software has switched to something weird or they try something else.

    >$15 headphones
    >128 kbps opus
    >$60 dac

    Let's say you can just buy almost whatever trash used for $0-20 and then just use 128 kbps bitrate and even most hardcore audiophiles can't hear the difference. Problem is they always know that hardware is cheap and "not popular" so they think audio quality is bad even when they can't actually hear that difference. After this I always just listen with different cheap things and buy cheapest one that I think is better than all of the other ones. Then just use 128 kbps. I don't even like music as a whole so I don't care.

      128kb with opus is overkill. The default encoding profile with ffmpeg is 90k and most people won't hear a difference at a very low bitrate, around 60k and below on a instrumental track, that's how opus is efficient. So imagine the mental justification for audiophiles to rip their vinyl at floating point.
      The whole point for audiophiles is collecting great records, like this dude have apparently a large collection of vinyl and that's great. It doesn't cost much and that's something you can pass on, not your fricking cathedral of sound.

    My grandpa probably has ~$30k-50k worth of audio gear, no snake oil stuff just high end speakers/amps/receivers for a 7.1 channel home theater and headphones/amp/receiver for watching fricking CNN and Star trek reruns on cable.
    Except for the boomers that buy bus-sized RVs old people don't really develop new hobbies, so when it's time to CONSOOOOOOM they just spend unimaginable amounts of money (relative to someone ages 18-50) on the same type of crap they ever did before.
    I personally try to hold myself to going no higher than "mid-range" for any hobbyist bullshit I buy for myself. That tends to coincide with where price-performance starts to precipitously drop off, and give you a level of performance that is more than adequate for even a low-level of autism in whatever that field is.

      As someone who is literally taking care of a medically inferm father you are a dumb fricking moron. not only did I do this without any expectations of reward because I'm well aware of my fathers dispassionate outright antagonistic and ungreatfull behavior when faced with thanking someone who is helping him almost every day. but I know my dad is partially undiagnosed autistic and this guy is only going to be a million times worse. When I was their age my dad DID foster me and took me out places and it was only when i grew old enough to challenge him that he started acting like an ungreatful Black personparent half the time.

      So Keep up with me, I've been doing that for 5 years, despite having irreplacable things in his life, and no new memories to show for it except worse ones, I could have made more money and had a brighter future working for myself easily. I could ecclipse the money dad brags about using for himself. I always encourage him to when he does because the idea that he would ever even consider that I'd waste 5 years of my life for so little makes me appoplectic like those women who dream of their spouse cheating on them. If he ever does give me everything, it will only be a responsability to hand it off to the next generation because most of it is too valuable to sell and I dont own a home because of all the time I spent caring for him.

      TL:DR No. No this game is never worth playing. this is like paying off a debt and why so many kids are going troon or enbie or whatever revolting shit. They check out of the mental illness that is part of their parents lives. They go supervillain evil thinking if no one will love them they'll force the world to. There's a reason israelites and israelites print money to dissolve debts like this.

        So you're hurting your future, making your life worse, being abused by a man who is ungrateful for your help, and all for a bunch of stuff that you'll have to put in storage to hand down to the family you've been unable to have?
        I really don't understand.

          its really incomprehensible. I think its something only someone white and with white upbringing can feel. It doesn't make any sense. but I think ultimately the reason I do it is because I want to believe it's the right thing to do, and that in circumstances that are not poisonous, this behavior is what led to western society being collaborative instead of a free for all of people ripping eachother off.

    I think I would rather listen to stories from a drug addict than talk to an audiophile.
