It's been 29 hours for me now, this is the longest I have maybe ever gone excluding times of illness, I wanted to see how long I could go without doing it as a test of self control, I really have my mind set on this I usually do it twice maybe even 3 times a day so this is not gonna be easy, it's been pretty easy today I have kept myself busy so no real cravings as of yet, if I can manage to last a week that would be a big achievement for me, so I made this thread to document my experience and also to see what advice I can get to help me, has anybody on here got any good tips or done anything like this before? I also wanna hear from the people who never wack off (if we have any on here) then what do you think the benefits are to living a wank free life?
Im just going to put all the facts i find on the internet into one thread, kinda like chitlin and his news thread.
I just got these off the internet, i dont know if they are true or not. Google it if your so curious.
Ill post infographics and cool educational type gifs in here as well.
Feel free to post some too if you come across any.
An Amtrak train traveling from Seattle to Portland, Ore., derailed near a highway overpass in Tacoma on Monday morning, causing at least multiple deaths and injuries, officials there say.
Anybody ever stop by one of them shits? They any good?
A restaurant in Lubbock, Texas has come under fire in recent days for a racist sign that is hanging up on its wall.
On Thursday, Cook’s Garage responded after a person who attended a Christmas party at the restaurant noticed a neon sign of a black caricature emblazoned with the words “Coon Chicken Inn.” After the person posted photos of the sign on Facebook, the owners of the restaurant posted the following explanation to its Facebook page:
As you can see above, the restaurant owners contend that they did not mean to offend anyone as the sign was meant to represent “Americana history.” Highlighting that other racist collectibles featuring black caricatures are “highly sought after,” they noted that the Chicken Coon Inn was an actual restaurant that existed and that featuring the sign is “preserving a part of history that should remind us all of the senselessness of racial prejudice.”
After the Facebook response from Cook’s Garage went viral and local station WLBT 3 posted a story stating that “some are calling” the sign racist, folks on Twitter reacted.
A ‘commerical’ for Coon Chicken Inn was featured in the 2004 mockumentary C.S.A.: The Confederate States of America, a movie that presented an alternate history where the Confederacy won the Civil War. The 2001 movie Ghost World also used a sign from the restaurant as a plot point.
Well the last thread was deleted along with the rest of my content but the show must go on.
I'm proud of what the last thread became and how many posters got involved, you guys helped not only keep me motivated but keep other posters motivated as well so pat yourselves on the back for that.
Let's keep it up in 2015, what are some of your goals?
The U.S. government ran a program for investigating reports of unidentified flying objects until 2012, the Department of Defense confirmed for ABC News.
As first reported by The New York Times and The Washington Post, the once secret program was funded from 2007 to 2012. According to The New York Times, the DOD spent $22 million on the program.
"The Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program ended in the 2012 time frame," the Pentagon told ABC News in a statement. "It was determined that there were other, higher priority issues that merited funding and it was in the best interest of the [DOD] to make a change. The [DOD] takes seriously all threats and potential threats to our people, our assets and our mission and takes action whenever credible information is developed.“
Secret Pentagon UFO program revealed
According to initial reports, the program investigated years of reports of UFOs, and the program was funded at the request of now former Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., who has expressed interest in investigating unexplained phenomena in outer space.
Alright yall this is a spinoff from the Tax Implications thread that was started by @JonnyRoccIT . I made this thread to help out anybody who has general questions about getting started or going forward, legal matters in business, financing/banks/credit, how to find information, building websites, structure, taxation, business plans/proposals, investing, motivation - anything that has to do with running a business please ask the question here and me or @pralims will answer you promptly.
Anything that has to do with even supplying apps or anything for that matter that can help someone, anybody, somewhere do something easier or better will be greatly appreciated.
To kick things off I have put the topics in spoilers to make the O/P organized and easier to browse for mobile users.
Business Entity/Legal Structures
The simplest structure is the sole proprietorship, which usually involves just one individual who owns and operates the enterprise. If you intend to work alone, this structure may be the way to go. The tax aspects of a sole proprietorship are appealing because the expenses and your income from the business are included on your personal income tax return, Form 1040. Your profits and losses are recorded on a form called Schedule C, which is filed with your 1040. The "bottom-line amount" from Schedule C is then transferred to your personal tax return. This is especially attractive because business losses you suffer may offset the income you have earned from your other sources.
As a sole proprietor, you must also file a Schedule SE with Form 1040. You use Schedule SE to calculate how much self-employment tax you owe. In addition to paying annual self-employment taxes, you must make estimated tax payments if you expect to owe at least $1,000 in federal taxes for the year after deducting your withholding and credits, and your withholding will be less than the smaller of:
1) 90 percent of the tax to be shown on your current year tax return or
2) 100 percent of your previous year's tax liability.
The federal government permits you to pay estimated taxes in four equal amounts throughout the year on the 15th of April, June, September and January. With a sole proprietorship, your business earnings are taxed only once, unlike other business structures. Another big plus is that you will have complete control over your business--you make all the decisions. There are a few disadvantages to consider, however. Selecting the sole proprietorship business structure means you are personally responsible for your company's liabilities. As a result, you are placing your assets at risk, and they could be seized to satisfy a business debt or a legal claim filed against you.Raising money for a sole proprietorship can also be difficult. Banks and other financing sources may be reluctant to make business loans to sole proprietorships. In most cases, you will have to depend on your financing sources, such as savings,
home equity or family loans.
If your business will be owned and operated by several individuals, you'll want to take a look at structuring your business as a partnership. Partnerships come in two varieties: general partnerships and limited partnerships. In a general partnership, the partners manage the company and assume responsibility for the partnership's debts and other obligations. A limited partnership has both general and limited partners. The general partners own and operate the business and assume liability for the partnership, while the limited partners serve as investors only; they have no control over the company and are not subject to the same liabilities as the general partners.
Unless you expect to have many passive investors, limited partnerships are generally not the best choice for a new business because of all the required filings and administrative complexities. If you have two or more partners who want to be actively involved, a general partnership would be much easier to form.
One of the major advantages of a partnership is the tax treatment it enjoys. A partnership does not pay tax on its income but "passes through" any profits or losses to the individual partners. At tax time, the partnership must file a tax return (Form 1065) that reports its income and loss to the IRS. In addition, each partner reports his or her share of income and loss on Schedule K-1 of Form 1065.
Personal liability is a major concern if you use a general partnership to structure your business. Like sole proprietors, general partners are personally liable for the partnership's obligations and debts. Each general partner can act on behalf of the partnership, take out loans and make decisions that will affect and be binding on all the partners (if the partnership agreement permits). Keep in mind that partnerships are also more expensive to establish than sole proprietorships because they require more legal and accounting services.

As for what state is best to incorporate in, it really depends on what type of business you're trying to build. Please PM me and I may be able to assist you.
For motivation give these books a read:

Feel free to post if yall can contribute, anything is plenty.
A Tampa lawyer had sexual relations with a female inmate inside the Pinellas County Jail several times in a private room reserved for attorneys to meet with their clients, investigators said.
He is also accused of soliciting sex from another incarcerated woman, according to deputies, offering to put money in her commissary account and saying he was filming the acts for a pornographic video titled Girls in Jail.
Pinellas Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said Andrew B. Spark, 54, may have performed the same scheme with multiple women in county jails across the Tampa Bay region and Central Florida.
In Pinellas, the sheriff said, Spark lied and said he was representing the women to gain access to the room, which does not have recording equipment and only has a small window in the door.
The first woman, 28, met Spark when he paid her for sex after finding her prostitution ads online before she went to jail, the sheriff said. The lawyer met the second woman, 25, last year at a porn convention in Tampa, according to deputies.
He engaged in sexual acts with the 28-year-old, who is detained on drug charges, at least six times between June and December, investigators said. Spark would film the woman in the private room, the sheriff said, and started by asking her to narrate sexual fantasies. Spark would stand in front of the door, blocking the window while she performed a sex act, Gualtieri said.
yo...the redirect is within the next week or so. the current IC will become read-only, and all new posts will be on the new allhiphop.com
I already know... "it's the end of the world/end of the IC/end of AHH/I'm out/I'm headed to another site" etc. we obviously prefer y'all stay, but y'all may decide to leave. that's your prerogative.
both the IC and AHH will go on. for every upgrade we've had, ERYBODY bitched about it at first, then grew to like it. that's happened without fail, except for just one time...and in that one time, erybody's shit got hacked, so...ppl liked the site, but still hated it. the game's the game.
I'm not happy about the prospect of possibly losing some folks. hoping for those who do leave, they decide to come back. every upgrade the IC's ever had was always hated, and we're not expecting differently this time.
the feedback that was given earlier has been applied. all of it won't be visible until after the redirect. even so, there's still gonna be a crowd of ppl who won't be satisfied. again, both the IC and AHH will go on.
accounts have already gone over. post counts will go over. reactions won't : ( at least, at first. some of the forums won't make it over (think Growing Pains), but it will be the IC.
I know there's other concerns...@grouchygreg is tuned in to this thread, anyone can @ him, or hit him via pm. I'm also gonna post a mini-FAQ in this thread.
my bad in advance for us all having to get reacquainted in a new spot, but this'll be temporary, and the IC will go on.
I know a lot of people were all for that viral video of the kid crying talking about bullies. I was suspicious of it because I'm suspicious of all videos of parents recording their children crying and up loading online for views. But the stuff that dropped on his mom has me questioning if that video is even real.
Before you parade your child on social media, sobbing about being bullied, and then have celebrities rally behind you, you might want to clean up your own racist social media posts. That’s exactly what Keaton Jones’ mother, Kimberly Jones, didn’t do—and now her past Facebook posts are coming back to bite her in her racist ass.
Over the last 72 hours, actors, athletes and regular folks on social media have rallied behind Keaton Jones, a Union County, Tenn., middle schooler, after his tear-filled video went viral. They rallied so much that a GoFundMe has raised over $55,000, and he’s received numerous invites to big-time Hollywood movie premieres.
But wait, there’s more.
After internet detectives found Kimberly Jones’ Facebook page, they realized that she may be on the wrong side of history when it comes to her love of the Confederate flag:
After more digging, MMA fighter Joe Schilling posted an Instagram conversation that he had with someone alleging to be Jones:
So, sure, Keaton may be the vicious victim of bullying (and also may have called a few classmates the n-word, which was noted on Kimberly’s Facebook page before she closed it), and his mother is using his pain for her own interests, but it’s ironic that she’s willing to accept money from black athletes and other celebrities that she would probably consider “butt hurt Americans.”
Of course Jones’ Facebook has now been locked down and her privacy settings have been updated.
Now i cant help but wonder if his "bullying" was just kids not wanting to be around him because he was talking that crazy stuff his parents taught him.
YCN aka Young_Chitlin News is the premiere thread on not only the Ill Community, but rather any message board on the internet that will provide posters and lurkers with up to date news from around the world. It will be a singular thread filled with hundreds of news posts covering various topics. If a story has pictures, then pictures will be posted. YCN can confirm exclusively in this thread that our very own @Young_Chitlin will retire the following threads: I give no f_cks, threads whose title begins with a name of one of the 50 states or any country (Meanwhile in). Certain food and drinks will have its very own thread.
Enjoy reading all kinds of news that your favorite news station will not cover, that others on here will brush aside and not make the thread for fear of negative remarks. We here at YCN follow but one simple premise that we hope that all posters of a message board on not only the Ill Community, but rather all message boards worldwide adopt: I just post, nothing more and nothing less.
its time this got its own thread. The Breakfast Club has changed the game in radio. They are now leaps and bounds ahead of their competition.
So far in 2016, they have had some DOPE interviews.
had to start the thread off with the one that coined the term "chatty patty"
hilarious but somewhere, a few gems were dropped
A tool created by Google engineers to automate the writing of machine learning algorithms has outperformed developers in the creation of efficient machine learning systems for some tasks.
The AutoML (automated machine learning) tool was announced earlier this year by Google representatives. Its creation was motivated by the widespread skills shortage associated with coding, particularly for machine learning applications. The Google team built a machine learning system capable of rapidly creating, testing and refining machine learning architectures.
“One way we hope to make AI more accessible is by simplifying the creation of machine learning models called neural networks,” wrote Sundar Pichai, Google CEO, in a blog post.
“Today, designing neural nets is extremely time intensive, and requires an expertise that limits its use to a smaller community of scientists and engineers. That’s why we’ve created an approach called AutoML, showing that it’s possible for neural nets to design neural nets.”
The AutoML approach allows for a “controller neural net” to put forward a suggestion of a basic architecture for a new machine learning algorithm, which can be subsequently trained to perform a highly specialised task. The algorithm’s performance is evaluated and this feedback is used to improve the next attempt.
After repeating these simulations thousands of times, the controller is well-informed about which architectures are likely to perform better at this task. This entire process is automated and takes a matter of hours.
Within just five months, Google has reported that AutoML has begun to generate machine learning algorithms which outperform those written by the developers themselves. An AutoML-generated algorithm proved capable of learning to recognise and categorise images – an extremely complex task – reached a record 82 per cent accuracy.
Even in complex tasks, the AutoML code outperformed code written by developers: in a task in which the system had to mark the location of various objects within an image, the developers’ machine learning software achieved 39 per cent accuracy, while the AutoML software achieved 43 per cent.
Once well-honed enough such that it could be used for practical applications, tools like AutoML could be incorporated into machines of the near future, allowing them to update themselves regularly and even create new programs to solve specific problems.
While machines outperforming humans in highly-skilled jobs remains a fantasy, the success of AutoML demonstrates the slight edge that artificially intelligent systems can have over humans in performing tedious tasks: in this case, the ability of AutoML to rapidly run through thousands of possible architectures would otherwise take months of work for a developer, whose time could be put to better use on more creative tasks.
