Anon/cafe/ is a board for laid-back, comfy discussion. Relax and enjoy.

Feel free to use /cafe/ as a place to shelter and regroup if your home board(s) can’t be reached. It’s one of the things that Anon/cafe/ is for.

Reminder that life is great
5 posts and 3 images omitted.
Life is a gift and I cherish it even when I hate it some days.
I enjoy the simple things in life. Despite being a social recluse and retard, I still have places like this. Being able to lurk and shoot the shit and have banter and discussions with anons is enough for me. While the rest of my life is a fucking mess, I'm still fortunate enough to have small gatherings of anons to share the time with.

What is great in life?
Being multicellular is pretty neat. It took a whole 3 billion years of evolution for that to happen.

Which one
If you are having suicidal thoughts, you should call your area's suicide hotline. Google "suicide hotline <your area>" and ring them up now.

Yeah, it's like a free game of Russian roulette. If you lose, you get taken to suicide jail where you're not allowed to do anything that could kill you (anything), but if you win they send the police over to kill you for you. Try your luck!
But why should I live?If at the end everyone is going to die.So should I put all my hard work in life, to die at the end?

/imbibe/ General - What are you drinking? Anonymous 11/11/2019 (Mon) 10:39:12 No. 562 [Reply]
I want to shitpost about alcohol. What are you drinking, Anon? Tell us about it! This /cafe/ is licensed, right?

I've been on a cocktail kick lately. I decided to have an apéritif tonight, so I made this gin martini with Beefeater London dry gin, Carpano dry vermouth, and a dash of Angosutra bitters. I considered a lemon twist but ended up garnishing with an olive because I wanted that slightly briny flavour. It's certainly stimulated my appetite, but I think maybe the dry gin might be a little harsh so it might have benefited more from the lemon oil from the twist to perfume it, give it a little less of the one note. I thought that the herbs from the vermouth came through beautifully bitter. Still prefer a Negroni as an apéritif, though.

Latest /imbibe/s.

I wanted to try making something with a digestif liqueur, so I picked Jägermeister. I think Jaeger's reputation has chased a lot of people away from it, or it could be that digestif liqueur cocktails are difficult to formulate. I popped off a Surfer on Acid and a Fright Night in the Grove. The surfer tasted very sweet and tropical with the herbs from the Jaeger grounding it and the foam from shaking adding a nice little touch of texture. The fright night was quite strong and I was surprised that the tequila worked well with the Jaeger.

Lately I'm trying out riffs on the Daiquiri. I tried two similar recipes side by side that use scotch - the Smoke and Mirrors and Smokescreen, each distinguished only by their use of absinthe or green chartreuse. They tasted fruity and a little smoky, with the first having a pronounced "down" complexity and the latter having an "up" complexity.
what the fuck is that

More! I am loving these experiments.

First I tried a basic sherry cobbler using amontillado sherry. It was a nice little number that basically evened out the sherry and made all its dry fruity favours slow down to the point I could taste them. Then I tried two elaborations - one underfunded Traction with muddled lemons, rum and curacao, and one peachy... thing with muddled lemon_orange, cognac, and peach liqueur. The first was delicious. The second was very sweet but I don't feel it landed, just tasted a little blurry.

Then I tried two flips - one basic one with sherry and egg with nutmeg on top, the other a more complex nog with scotch, Campari, maple syrup, cream, egg, and a splash of spent coffee grounds from a Nespresso capsule with cinnamon on top. The basic sherry flip was nice and creamy, but again quite basic - the texture and fattiness stretched out the sherry really nicely. The nog came out with a lot more coffee than I expected, but it still worked and the coffee grounds that fell through the strainer formed a nice little pattern at the bottom of the glass.

Maybe I should move this to julay/ck/, which also seems fucking dead.
cheap and strong white cider. It's what homeless alcoholics drink

The psychoactive substance index is designed to catalog and provide relevant, accurate, and unbiased information for any and all psychoactive substances, with emphasis on those that can be used as consciousness expanding tools. The individual articles detail not just the history, chemistry, pharmacology, toxicity, and legality of each substance, but also its unique profile of subjective effects. This is done in accordance with a standardized system of definitions and terminologies found in the subjective effects index.
Another proposed reason for the presence of psychoactive substances in nature is their use as a defence mechanism. Through natural selection an organism may develop a poison or toxin useful for fending off predators,[2] as can be seen in Latrodectus Spiders who's psychoactive Latrotoxin has no reward value, and instead poses a threat to others.

Below is an index of articles regarding natural sources of psychoactive substances. Other than inanimate sources they are categorized by kingdom of organism with sections for each applicable class of psychoactivity, sub-sections are given to active constituents, and finally the taxonomy and common name. Names may appear more than once if they contain a variety of substances, or their active substance has a variety of effects. Please note the quantity of substance obtained through an organism is not always safe and/or effective at common levels of consumption, but they are here included for sake of completeness. In addition some of the organisms are toxic or dangerous and thus proper research and preparation is recommended before attempting to personally investigate their activity.

How was your day, anon? Anonymous 09/17/2019 (Tue) 03:39:35 No. 46 [Reply]
Divulge your failures, your triumphs, and your struggles from the day. No event too small to mention!

Today, I had a lot of fun cleaning the floors in the home. I ran up and down the hallway with a soapy towel, got on my hands and knees and scooby-doo scrubbed the kitchen and bathroom floors, and was completely exhausted and satisfied by the end of it.

new poster here, this feels very comfy to post here, so well... here it is.
I felt very bored today (maybe because i'm behind a device most of the time), but decided to visit the city and go to my ususal stores. Surprise, surprise, my social awkwardness kicked in and caused me to feel very unconfortable near people. Nonetheless, i still managed to get my arse outside, so it was still a good day.
I am noticing lately that i am not really feeling like myself anymore. The past feels just like a glass wall, where all my mistakes and mishapes are contantly being shown to me as a way for my inner self to say "You already made a fool out of yourself, what is even the point of trying?" I need to fix and act on it myself, but can any of you gve me some advice on hot to deal with this?
Where are you from anon?
>all my mistakes and mishapes are contantly being shown to me as a way for my inner self to say "You already made a fool out of yourself, what is even the point of trying?"
This is a very common thing. The part of your brain that is doing this thinks it’s protecting you but it’s not too clever so it’s actually holding you back by doing what it thinks is it’s job. The trick is to make it feel satisfied so it stops.

For example, another anon once gave this tip: When your brain replays an embarrassing interpersonal moment from your past - perhaps a time when you felt ashamed or did the wrong thing - freeze it, and pick out the other person or people involved. Say to yourself, “This memory has helped me to learn <whatever> and now I can put it away.” In your imagination, go back to that situation as vividly as you can, allow the memory to happen, and then before it fades, imagine that the other person or people speak to you and forgive you for what you did, felt, said, or whatever. Make it simple, clear, and to the point. In this way the part of your brain that tries to keep you from repeating mistakes will be able to stop tracking that memory because it will feel that the matter has been settled, and the memory will trouble you less. If it comes back at all, it should come back with reduced intensity, and you will be able to repeat the process. Other memories from your embarrassment stack might begin to trouble you instead, so simply repeat the process for them. In this way you can become able to put away those memories where they belong and free up your energy for use in the moment to help create for yourself the future you want.
