    Socrates was literally that kid that would go out without his coat in the winter to flex his mental strength

      He wasn't flexing.

      Xenophon and Julius Caesar

      Polybius too. And that unknown fella who had wrote De Bello Africo. But using Greeks and Romans as examples is kind of cheating, IMO.

      There are literally adults on this board who think that taking cold showers and not jerking off gives them superpowers

        Tesla and Newton thought that and they were pretty smart. Napoleon Hill said not jerking off is the first step to becoming a genius.
        It makes sense; jerking it wastes a lot of time and physical energy. It also warps your mind and zaps your motivation. You'd have to admit that the time you spend jerking off could be better spent on something productive, wouldn't you, anon?

          Confirmation bias/survivorship bias. Yes abstinence builds discipline, gives energy and gives you more time to focus on better pursuits but there are plenty of people who abstain from sex only to indulge in other things. Or people who abstain but are just naturally stupid.

    The gravestone of Aeschylus made no mention of his literary achievements.
    >Beneath this stone lies Aeschylus, son of Euphorion, the Athenian,
    >who perished in the wheat-bearing land of Gela;
    >of his noble prowess the grove of Marathon can speak,
    >and the long-haired Persian knows it well.

      >One morning he was thinking about something which he could not resolve; he would not give it up, but continued thinking from early dawn until noon--there he stood fixed in thought; and at noon attention was drawn to him, and the rumour ran through the wondering crowd that Socrates had been standing and thinking about something ever since the break of day. At last, in the evening afer supper, some Ionians out of curiosity (I should explain that this was not in winter but in summer), brought out their mats and slept in the open air that they might watch him and see whether he would stand all night. There he stood until the following morning; and with the return of light he offered up a prayer to the sun, and went his way (compare supra).

      Honestly, I wouldn't like him if he wasn't so successful. If he wasn't, he'd be a nobody. Since he is, he actually gives me hope.
