So this is a litmus test which lets you determine whether someone is an NPC or not in a single innocuous question with reasonable accuracy. All you have to do is ask someone what the best tasting pizza is. If he says an American chain one, he is not an NPC. If he says some hipster thing or uses the word "authentic" or "Italian" in his reply, he is an NPC. Or at the very least, he has a tendency toward virtue-signalling behavior which is highly correlated with NPCness.

The reasoning behind this is very simple. Basically, objectively speaking, American fast food pizzas taste better than traditional Italian ones. Any person who compares the two in a vacuum is going to say that the former tastes better. However, there is a huge stigma to saying this and you will be considered "uncultured" amongst normies if you say this. So when a person is confronted with this question, he is forced to choose between two alternatives: "do I say what I really think or do I say what I think will make me look better?" By the way a person responds to this question you can determine whether he is a person who says what he really thinks or one who says what he thinks he is supposed to say. And that is one of the biggest differences between an NPC and a non-NPC.

It is almost exactly the same as the abstract art test. In the past you could determine if someone was an NPC by asking him if he liked abstract art. The problem is that abstract art has become such a meme at this point and mocked so much that there is much less of a stigma to not pretending to like it, and there is actually even a stigma to pretending to like it in some circles. Meanwhile the "authentic" food circlejerk is still very strong and near universal. This, combined with the fact that it is on an irrelevant and totally innocuous topic, is important because it allows the test to work across the political spectrum.

women love pizza/pizzas so much.
eating a pizza with a whore is guaranteed to bust a nut inside of her hole OR in the MAGA friendzone.
both are great places to be if a slut whore woman is involved.
women usually sex to get on a pizza date.

it should be known, if bringing said come dumpster whore on a pizza date and you, in alpha baritone voice, inform this soon to be single mother you will be ordering the pizza, get sauerkraut topping. if she scarfs it down, you'll be a father of son in 8 - 9 months.

Nor American - the only people who think pizza chain pizzas are better than pizzerias are mexicans because they put hot dogs and shit on their pizza in Mexcio: they're dirt humanoids and have no idea what tastes good.

Dayum buddy going for the throat there. No, I have never had a good pizza anywhere in Latin America (nor a good steak). They just can’t get it right despite having restaurants supposedly dedicated to the purpose.

But saying Mexican food in general doesn’t taste good is just below the belt. Mexican food is one of the greatest culinary creations in existence; only Asian is in its same league. Give credit where it is due.

Just being able to articulate some of the different genres alone puts you a step ahead of the boring radio listener who simply answers "I like everything" or something but what he really means is that he just passively listens to whatever goyim-slop's available.
Amen. That's the relevant point as far as the thread is concerned.

Personally my likes music-wise pretty much correlate to all the different successive time periods in my life in general. When I was younger from the first memories I have I listened to Classic Rock because that's what my dad listened to, and eventually in my pre-teens it was always '80s Hair Bands like Poison and Motley Crue. And so as I became a teenager I gradually got into Rap (yeah my dad warned me about this too at the time!) for a period, but by the time I started high school or thereabouts I was already out of that phase and into more Psychedelic Rock like Pink Floyd and Grateful Dead, which easily transitioned into Jam Bands for the most of my high school experience,
Preaching to the choir. As I recall, you are only a few years older than me. The Puff Daddy single I bought was deffinitely cringe. Pink Floyd and Zepplin definitely came with age: my beginning of appreciation for sounds outside of penantonic scales and 4:4 timing. I began to regress into older music at that time. I stopped listening to contemporary music outside of acoustic and folk genres in the mid-00's...but then Greta Van Fleet in 2019 haha!

After learning to play myself I got more and more attracted to Indie Rock because during the first decade of the 2000s that was really where the most innovation and release from commercial conformity was happening most generally.
I didn't appreciate the lack of melody and display of instrumental skill in this genre, though Young The Giant really piqued my interest in 2013.

I still like all of this same music mentioned above today however, and I'll listen currently to whatever fits my mood as I don't really have a clear favorite necessarily. I did stop playing in bands myself toward my later twenties, but I would agree with you firmly that your own material is some of the most rewarding and psychologically satisfying to listen to years later in retrospect because it's like a real-time picture or movie into your former life and the experiences that made you who you are right now.
Preaching to the choir, brother. The 90's country is a huge draw for me due to the lyrical wit, happy feel, and nostalgia.

The biggest reason I grew out of playing in bands myself is because this period sort of terminated precisely where my political awakening began.
That's too bad. My storytelling didn't really even shift after redpilling, though some ballads became more political and I cold turkey quit writing songs about romance.

And so once I got centered in the world of conspiracy and history and had that context worked out generally, it was a matter of where I was going to concentrate my time in the future mainly, and if I wanted to take politics and history as seriously as I wanted to at the time, then I reasoned that there just wasn't enough time in the day for playing music.
I want to inspire you here. I wrote one 2 years ago with a verse that goes like this: (don't worry, no dox. I have never posted any of my material for fear of someone stealing it). God speed, brother.

I've got a big problem with your little tribe
You lie and steal and you cheat and bribe
You control our politics at both ends
And think we're less 'cause you're chosen

But you see this ground beneath my feet
It's not yours and it's never gonna be
You see these people in these streets
They're not yours and they're never gonna be
We're taking back our identity...
Cause it's not yours and it's never gonna be (and I'll tell you why)

You gut our companies and hoard the stocks
Blaspheme Christ without a thought
And peddle depravity around the clock
It's about time we had this talk

You flood our lands with refugees
Bury our grads in usury
And send our boys to die over seas
You're getting kicked out to say the least

'Cause you see this ground beneath my feet
It's not yours and it's never gonna be
You see these people in these streets
They're not yours and they're never gonna be
It's America First for my Country...
'Cause it's not yours and it's never gonna be

I haven't bought a store bought pizza in almost 20 years. I don't know the difference between brands and chains. We started to make our own from scratch as an economy measure when we had a lot of mouths to feed. I would have said, Pepperoni, with olives, peppers and onion and lots of cheese.

I'm all about Dr. Oetker's frozen pizzas.

1. 3 for $10 at Homeplus
2. Very tasty
3. Korean chains such as "Pizza School" just kinda suck
4. American chains like Papa John's are really expensive here
5. Rudolf Oetker served in the Waffen-SS (literally /ourpizza/)

American chain pizza is definitely the real pizza. The two best types of pizza from America, in no particular order:

-Detroit pan pizza
-Cici's spinach alfredo pizza

Yuropoor pizzas are trash and europeans as a whole should be ashamed of them.

I recently had the chance to have an actual real pizza, quickly baked in an over at 700 degrees F, perfect topping ratio and crust. It blew away any normal 425 degree F pizza I've ever had. Raised the food item to a level I didn't know was possible.

Exactly, it is odd to call chain pizza a litmus test. That is like saying people with a pasta machine are NPCs because they don't like kraft macaroni and cheese. We are eating homemade pizza tonight, regardless off this thread, with three cheeses, pepperoni, mushroom, and spinach. Horrible NPC people we are, we do it all from scratch. Pizza hut and such would be a possible last minute, very drunk but need to eat delivery call.

The music diversion was interesting. It can eliminate a lot out front, but then you have to ask why. The person might want to answer or might be shit testing you and decided it is not worth it. I listen to a lot of Brazilian and Spanish music, mostly rock/blues type stuff, but I can get down with a 3/4 time jam as well. The reason I like it is clear to me, but I feel no need to justify it to others. I play guitar, I guess that changes ones perspective. Sometimes a song is not great, but you can hear how it could be. Odd, I know. I have no clue about the modern stuff, my knowledge of US music died sometime before I left.

I still think the best question is who has authority over you. That will answer everything in a very quick manner and does not even need to be posed as an argumentative question. Just a casual, who do you think should have authority over you? If it is anything other than nobody or Jesus you have your answer.

Northeastern bar pies are the best pizza. I'm biased but I'm still right.

I hate commercials, new commercial music, and the distraction of a smart phone. I love listening to the giant church organs (Widor's toccata!) and bagpipes, fife and drum march. I especially love mountain music and bluegrass - banjo and fiddle along with clogging.
.............................music I compose. Music for the most part has to tie into a part of my identity for me to enjoy. Nothing could be closer to me than my own stuff.

@Coltraine How would you rate my response? Would you think I was based or a NPC pseudo-intellectual poser? LoL be honest.
I would assume you were some kind of community theater, ren fair fag, etc. People with niche tastes usually engage in niche hobbies. NOT NPC just that kind of person thats too into their hobbies. I especially dont see musicians as NPCs. Becasue of the way music works on the brain. Too tired to articulate what i mean.

Mexican food is where the authenticity circlejerk is justified. Otherwise you end up with this:

TBH fam, I still make Old El Paso hardshells with locally sourced ground beef and lettuce, crackle barrel texmex, my own home grown jalapenos (and sometimes lettuce too), and of course the OEP seasonings, every other Thursday at a minimum.

It's taken me years to perfect it, but I've got it down to a science now, frying the beef, draining excess fat, throwing it back in with the peppers and seasonings, and then stirring together and frying it all down until it has the perfect consistency, and unfortunately, a lot of Americans fuck up the consistency of the old El Paso seasonings with the beef, they either char it using too high a heat out of impatience, or they end up undercooking it and it leaks through the cornbread. I don't think my parents ever made them as well as I do.

It's just like bourbon chicken, there's a fine middle-ground where you wanna get the sauce/glaze as thick, and adherent as possible, without using so much heat that you end up dehydrating and burning it and the meat, and that takes patience and vigilance. But not only does it taste the best that way, once the sauce is that consistency they won't fall apart as easily. Every nigguh just wanna crank up on the stovetop to max and fry their shit up in five minutes, stuff it down their fat face throat in two, if they even bother to cook with a stove.

One new taco recipe I did make back in July was slaw tacos. Swapped out the lettuce with homemade coleslaw I made out of my home grown cabbages. I did like the flavor better, but the consistency of the slaw was just so watery that I had the problem of it leaking through the cornbread, so I didn't really make that again afterwards.

But you just can't get good jalapenos from any fastfood chain in my experience. You have to grow/buy/make the recipes yourself, or go to a gourmet restaurant. We all know why. The moment Taco Bell, or McDonalds, or whoever else offers them, some lawsuit troll will eat one and then immediately sue because they found it too hot. Even all these "habanero" seasoned items on those menus are pretty weak compared to what I grow and eat.

I just got back from the forest forging for pizza ingredients.

I was able to locate mushrooms, crickets, tree bark, pine needles, moist soil for toppings. also milked a cow and made the cheese from scratch.

all the ingredients for the crust were also forged and the crust is will be made from scratch.

it's true to word Oregon Trail where I am at. no electricity or roads for thousands of miles.

Usually I determine an npc in the wild by they're bumper stickers.
If they have any they're most likely a non player in life.
Seriously. I don't know one based person with stickers on their vehicles. Not even those stupid stick figure family ones. When a truck pulls in with F Da Dems, TRUMP 2020, Take It From Muh Cold Dead Hands plastered all over the tail gate and an American flag hooked into his Reese hitch I know I'm going to wind up in an extremely low-brow argument.

A much better test: If they took the vax. Almost everyone that took it, took it because they were told to. Simple as. I can't think of a better single data point.
Basically this. OP is a troll though. Personally, I don't care for pizza all that much. I think just regular cheesy-bread is better, basically pizza with no toppings except cheese, and no tomato sauce either. However, if I started eating that stuff I'd become obese within a month so I just avoid it almost completely.

According to ppl I've talked to and assuming the ingredients are legit, (no synthetic plastic cheese type stuff for example) they say italian pizza is fresher bc all of it or most of it is made with real italians. (just kidding) Most of it or all of it is made with hand kneaded dough from scratch, no canned stuff or very very few canned items etc.

I've never tried it, but where I live, they all try to make the pizzas as close to how they do it in Italy. Gourmet is the standard here. What I personally don't really like about Italian pizza is there's only one thickness of thr crust. In American pizza, as we all know limits for the crusts are pushed, but even the plain deep dish is for me, a welcome sight bc I grew up on that and sometimes I prefer it. I also like the thin crusts as well. I'm probably one of the most easiest person to cook for or plan food for bc I'm not really all that picky. That's one of the reasons why I don't understand a lot of ppl who want this ultra high gourmet type of food bc 1: being easy to please gives you plenty of options and 2, how good do you want your food to be? By that I mean, if it's good food, but isn't exactly made entirely from scratch by a chef who travelled to the himalayas to get red salt, who cares? Especially now that ppl have it rougher than ever bc of the sanctions the lockdowns, the wealth transfers. Shit, in the future we'll look at a meal containing meat as a rarity if the kikes get what they want. I'm just grateful to have untainted food.
Not really familiar with American pan pizzas. The ones I've tried has been some of the big US brands over in Europe and I haven't liked these much. They've been more like thick soft bread with a bit of topping, and not enough topping. Maybe they are different in the states. In any case it's just my personal taste.

Probably the best pizza I've had was in a very small pizzeria in Napoli where they were using only fresh ingredients. The best pizza I've made myself was from freshly ground flour directly from the farmer, and not the stuff they sell in supermarkets. Considering how much better that tasted I really wonder for how long the flour in the supermarkets are really stored.

I do understand people who want high quality gourmet food. The better you learn to cook the higher you have to go in the quality of restaurants you go to. It's very annoying when you go to a restaurant and discover that you could have made it equally good or better yourself.

On this note, one of the tests I go with a lot around newcomers in my own life is just to ask them about their tastes in music, which I think via the same heuristics explained in the OP can very easily point you to whether or not this newcomer is signaling for attention or sincere in his/her appreciation and judgment overall. I find that if people get too esoteric with their musical interests or influences that they're likely trying to impress the person they're talking to rather than being genuine in their actual tastes. And then similarly if the newcomer is either too vague or too general in his response, it automatically informs me that this person is likely apathetic toward a wide variety of other topics too- likely involving both history and contemporary politics.
For me, it's old school thrash metal. But if anyone asks me and doesn't listen to metal themselves, the only examples I could give of bands I think are listenable is Metallica (but not most of the albums they've heard) and Slayer. Maybe Megadeth. But all of these bands are considered kind of "meh" to me anyway, with some good albums but more shitty ones. I guess most people have heard Pantera though as well, which would be "groove metal" if you want to sperg about it.

But yeah it's specifically thrash. I almost never like any black or death metal. Some speed metal is OK but really the boundary between speed and thrash is blurred. I do like some of the NWOBHM stuff, but when normies hear "metal" they think death metal which I don't like, or nu-metal/ metalcore stuff which isn't metal.

Sometimes to avoid the subject I'll just say something like "oh I like all sorts of stuff I just play whatever's popular or on the radio" which isn't true at all.

LoL no. I just said I didn't know anyone.

I almost never like any black or death metal.
If someone went through and deleted every single vocal track in this genre I would enjoy it. Super technical guitar playing: shredders are deffinitely reminiscent of the badass organ players of old.
