Erdogan has met Putin and ironed out the partition of northeastern Syria. He gets to keep everything he conquered and the rest stays with Assad. YPG retreats from a 30km strip along the border, leaving the bulk of Kurdish-populated areas. Russo-Turkish patrols guard the safe zone. The deal shows two things: By inviting Assad the SDF have completely relinquished their sovereignty. This was why they were so relutanct to receive aid during Olive Branch. As long as Erdogan maintains good relations with Assad and Putin, YPG will no longer bother him. If, however, relations sour then he can even expect a repeat of the 90s, when Hafez sheltered Ocalan and allowed PKK to use Syria as its base of operations. The deal was discussed with Putin, not Assad. It's also clear who calls the shots.
For locals conquered by Peace Spring, the problem is not Turkey itself but its Syrian rebel puppets, who are thugs and mistreat the population, as has already been the case in Afrin. For the war as a whole, peace is now closer. Once Idlib is sorted out, a simple deal with Turkey can grant Assad the whole country except for al-Tanf.
>>40645 Currently contained to Nagorno-Karabakh itself, with occasional shelling by Armenian forces of Azerbaijani cities closer to their border. Not sure what they are trying to achieve with that, it just makes them look bad in the international sphere despite some foreign media outlets making not so subtle attempts to run interference for them.
Pretty interesting that Armenia isn't officially part of conflict, it doesn't even recognize Karabakh independence (!), although de-facto it is Armenian territory. This is one reason why Armenia couldn't use own forces fully, but Azerbaijan could (because it is officially their own land and they do what they want).
Armenia also has no allies, nor proper army to act against both Azerbaijan and Turkey (that silently backs Azerbaijan), so it couldn't, for example, use aviation openly (although Azeris also hesistant to use it to slow the escalation).
Another problem of Armenia is complete unpreparedness. They won in 90s with less numbers and worse equipment than Azerbaijan had, only on quality of forces, but then didn't do anything. Although few years ago another clash displayed that Azeris pushed large amount of money in the army and now are much better prepared to conflict. That clash didn't change anything, Armenians still has no anti-drone weapons or proper tactics in new situation, and lose in combat badly.
The boiling meat burned itself I'm not happy of the results. Now the house smells like shit and the meat will be given to the dogs. Good thing is, when going to the meatshop to buy steaks (because the thing that was boiling got its water evaporated), my complete overboard thinking on the ruined meal allowed me to talk to a nice looking girl. But still, the meat is completely ruined. My mother was supposed to eat that. Talk here about ocurrances in your life, good, bad and memetic
The frame of my bed got broken. I decided against throwing money out for another cheapo one, and "reconfigure" what's left of it and use that. I have to take apart first, they gave me a hex key for the screws holding the thing together. Since I knew this shit will brake at some point and I'll need the key, I put it to a safe and convenient place so I can find it. I can't find it, Bernd.
>>40656 It won't. My new design is the simplest possible. Originally the frame consist of four legs, one board at the front, one at the back, two side boards, one horizontal board in the middle, and two slat rolls at the bottom screwed to the middle and the side boards. One of the side boards split along its whole length and the bottom half broken at the third. See picrel, red lines show the split and the break. What I'm going to do is taking apart the whole thing, clean the edges of the pieces of the broken side board, removing splits and splinters, then put the sideboards onto the floor flat like the middle board, nail the grills onto them and done. No legs or front or back boards. I could only break it if I'd step on the middle of the slat rolls. I could just throw the mattress onto the floor, but I'd rather have an air gap below.
And this shit broke because it isn't one piece of board, but it's smaller pieces of wood (some shitty pine ofc) glued together and thin wooden "wallpaper" glued around them as a cover. I should have just bought real boards and built a frame from scratch tbh.
This is something that isn't logical to me. From what i've read, the ottomans was a bunch of nomads invading anatolia, tamerlane defeated them soundly, they managed to take Constantinople and then became the big threat to christianity. How did they do it? How could they raise so much men, hundreds of thousands, time and time again?
>>40665 It still is but it's just a bit different. Chinese culture originated in the area that Beijing is now, in the north(Beijing means northern Capital). That's where the ancient Chinese dynasties and ancient Chinese history in general originated. Much of southern China used to be occupied by Viets until the Han dynasty invaded, even then there was still a bit of a divide and most often the capital was still somewhere in the north(even Nanjing is still not really in the south even though Nanjing means southern Capital). Even to this day the south speak Cantonese whereas the north speak mandarin. The south was histrionically poorer as well(the Beiyang army actually had to lower the height requirement for southern soldiers due to them being smaller on average) but maybe that is not true now as much of the wealth and business of China is now located in southern cities.
Every time I drink with friends, I talk Fighting Game. As a result, one of my friends bought "Street Fighter 2(PS2)" and brought my home yesterday. It was successful to brainwash. どうやら格ゲー界に貢献しちゃった感じだぁなぁ！？
Recently a lot of students came my workplace because of educational field trip. I also showed and performed them my work. It was going well until the middle, but at the end I made a so big mistake and finally I froze up in front of them. I died. 「いやああああ見ないでえええええ」と突然視姦プレイが始まって、最終的にはくっ殺状態になっていく様を見て 職場見学に来ていたジャリ坊達も社会の厳しさを痛感したというワケだぁ…？

There was no Kohlzine on October because Casey was hidden. But now we are back, even more autistic than ever and featuring some illustrations by Russian bernd.
We are waiting for your OC and text (any content, really) submissions on our mail: kohl[email protected] If KC doesn't die by then, lucky #13 will be our ANNIVERSARY issue, so expect lots of quality content(well it depends on your input too, kinda), KC posters, copypastas and more.
Just realized how massive my content is and thought about splitting it in two, this one is about Rio de Janeiro and outlying theaters, the other would be about the remaining theaters and some more questions. Still, my text draft alone is already large and then there's bibliography, maps, orders of battle and photographs.
Played some moar Atom RPG. I don't really have any coherent text drafted but some impressions, moments and such.
This game is depressing. It's like they extracted all the misery of the Soviet Union, ground it, added a hint mutants and monsters, then crammed it into one misery-sausage. Ofc there are funny lines and situations in there, always when you least expect. And you never expect them because the whole thing is so depressing. NPC interactions are animated nicely. Heart warming meeting of father and daughter. Then they started to gossip about me.
It's not so great there isn't actually much you can do and fights take too long, everything keeps missing and even when it does hit it won't do much, I hit Torpedo boats with numerous 9 and 6 Inch shells and they did do hardly anything. But it's in Alpha so maybe it will change later.
>>40206 I think the only game with warships I played was the Silent Service. I learned to navigate solely with compass and map from that game. Good times. I tried into submarine games published later on, but never had the patience for some reason (or was buggy).
I am currently trying out an obscure game called Chulip!, where you play as a young and poor Japanese boy who has to prove his manliness by helping out other people and smooching with them.
It looks like a bright and innocent game, but it's extremely dark sometimes. It provides a contemporary look at Japanese society throughout the entire game. It also shows how people who work without much recognition, I.E bernds, are actually the ones who keep society running
Here's an thorough analysis on the game (skip to 7:00 or ignore the long winded intro) https://youtube.com/watch?v=--7K9eVCFy4 [Embed]
>>40652 That being said, the game is pretty tedious and apologetically hard sometimes. Think NES game or Contra arcade level hard. You will need a manual or guide for this game. Although one is available if you have it from the PSN store.
This game was created by designers from the now defunct videogame company "Love-de-Lic", who created an extremely underrated game called "Moon Remix RPG adventure. They were also had employees who made the games Chibi Robo and Little King's story There's a really interesting story behind the game that I will write about when I get the chance. And Moon Remix also deserves a thorough analysis with it.
The previous thread is at 499 posts, on the brink of autosage. So I open up a new one, because I have a thing to discuss as well with Bernd. But first thing first.
Finally I wanna watch these in their entirety, a series of Japanese films from the 70s The Yakuza Papers or Battles Without Honor And Humanity - which is also the title of the very first one. I think the first five (what I'm planning on consuming) cover one full story, based on an OG yak's memoirs, published in a newspaper first. Then they made another three in the 70s, all standalone, and three more, two of them in this millennia. They are in a certain subgenre of yakuza movies, which were fresh breeze at that time with their more realistic narrative and breakup with the "honorable samurai" romanticism of the previous era. They are also filmed in a documentary style, with handheld shaky cameras, and sometimes they even timestamp certain events as the movie plays - as far as I can tell based on the first one which I seen (but will rewatch).
>>40616 >Fábri If you can get it somehow, watch The Witness (A tanú). Recently I saw the trailer of an upcoming Hungarian movie: Post Mortem. I'm planning to watch that, never seen Hungarian horror, never even heard of it. https://youtube.com/watch?v=YzI20PzjAsA [Embed]
Today we celebrate and glorify Pedro II's overthrow in a military coup 129 years ago, marking our transformation into a banana republic. The strongman who led the coup is even in every 25 cent coin. As typical, Temer spoke about the virtues and strength of liberal democracy even though the Braganza were more liberally democratic than the following regimes.
Auro de Moura Andrade, President of the Senate, had requested General Fico to defend Congress. Fico agreed, then proceeded to ignore the request.
The BGP's column reached the river at 12:00. It had quite an impact for the leadership in Minas Gerais, who feared an invasion. By their sources it was made of 3 tanks, 11 buses and 600 men and sighted by air at night on the 31st. The size and date are inconsistent with the BGP's sources. In response Lt Col Georgino's 10th Police Battalion was rushed to Paracatu in what has been described as a "drive worthy of a Rommel". It was on the road in the morning. Once in Paracatu, Georgino realized he was outgunned and entrenched in the town center. (This meant the opposing forces did not meet as the BGP was 40 km away in the river) This gave him a defensive advantage and endangered the locals; that was the point. With two visibly armed officers he informed the town hall on the result of a battle: "Paracatu would be destroyed"; "the blood of civilians would serve to rally Brazil against the communist bandits"; "those who opposed this glory would, too, be understood as communist bandits". The civilians went to the BGP to plead them not to attack.
Meanwhile at noon a motorized company of the 16th Caçadores Battalion, from Cuiabá, was already at the border with Goiás. It'd been sent by Col Meira Mattos in the previous day. Mato Grosso's capital received a reinforcement by the 2nd Border Battalion. According to Meira Mattos his drive would be backed by the 4th Cavalry Division from Campo Grande, but they didn't because of haste and confusion. Sources from Campo Grande say they didn't move to not waste money, and were also ready to reinforce São Paulo by rail if called. By Goulart's landing Meira Mattos had requisitioned the 3 aircraft in the airport and airlifted another company to Jataí.
The President found himself as unsafe as in Rio. Allegedly (this is only in the Oral History of the Army and nowhere else) he even found his own bodyguard platoon were phoning the BGP to discuss his arrest. The BGP's 3rd Company even prepared to move but General Fico showed up to talk about how they should obey the government as, after all, they got paid extra to serve in Brasília. The garrison was a mess with contradicting orders flying around. The Army Police company, with a legalist commander, and a company of the BGP were in mutual alert. At night Raimundo had to dissuade General Chaves, of the 10th Military Region, who wanted to grab the BGP and usurp Fico's command. And meanwhile the coupists were closing in from the west. It's mentioned Goulart knew at least of the company in Jataí. But in addition Meira Mattos removed the only obstacle on his path, the legalist in charge of the 10th Caçadores Battalion in Goiânia, by flying there and enlisting the support of the Goiás police.
Goulart conferenced. Some suggested he'd fight out from the Brasília, with the symbolic value of holding the capital. Fico insisted on his loyalty, and it was necessary for one thing - without the Army's protection, fear of the mob would keep Congress from attempting an impeachment or other maneuver. However the 11th Military Region's resources were too meager to resist. At 16:00 Goulart informed Porto Alegre that it'd be his next destination. He took off after 22:00. The 4th Company of the BGP retreated after 21:00. There's no mention of their reaction to the civilian pleas, only that they wouldn't resist after Âncora's surrender. Whether they'd even fight is unknown. Maj Henning's allegiance is a mystery. His men had left with the intent to defect but in the field were a bit clueless.
Returning from the airport, Darcy Ribeiro noted two things: the lights were on at Congress and the Army was defending it. Though there was no quorum for an impeachment, the Legislative conducted an institutional coup d'état by declaring the Presidency vacant - even though during the session an official notice that the President was still on national territory and merely moving to Porto Alegre was read. Darcy fruitlessly tried to mobilize the remaining legalist officers to prevent Ranieri Mazzili, President of the Chamber of Deputies, to assume the post. They couldn't blockade the palace or even pull off something as fickle as cutting off electricity. Mazzili was sworn in at 03:45 on the 2nd, in farcical circumstances. To top it off Darcy and Fico were in the palace as it happened, leading to a discussion about Fico's loyalty; he'd been obeying both Darcy and Costa e Silva, and the former caught Fico calling the latter "my chief" in a telegram. He called him a "treasonous monkey".
Meira Mattos made extensive further use of airlifts and at morning on the 2nd landed on Brasília itself, with some of his troops soon after. Others took a week to arrive by road. The 10th Police Battalion arrived on the same day. In this picture Georgino is to the left, holding his helmet. They hold their state's flag in front of the President's residence, symbol of federal power. From Belo Horizonte Guedes dispatched the "Caicó Detachment" to Brasília, composed of: 1st Battalion of the 12th Infantry Regiment 2nd Group of the 4th Howitzer Regiment Howitzer battery Shock battery (3 buses with surplus personnel) 10th Police Battalion 3rd Police Battalion
Elements of the: Instruction Department Auxiliary Service Corps Police Cavalry Regiment 1st (Guard) Police Battalion 12th Police Battalion
>>40576 I'm scraping it from the internet. From what I can tell, books have the same information. For now I'm trying to make a summary how to go about identifying a mushroom, what steps to follow, while get to know mushrooms a little better. Maybe it could help others, but chiefly for my own benefit. This can't be used in itself for id ofc, at least a small book is needed with the exact description of the most common mushrooms of the area to compare the findings to something. And even a large book with lotsa info might not help in certain cases (and then that particular mushroom should be left alone). Depending on memory (and chances to practice) it may take a while to learn enough. Best to stick to a few species in the beginning, that shouldn't be hard.
Garden findings again. Raining all week and these started to cover a patch. They ain't big but numerous. The cap feels slimy, it left the mark on the paper towel. Now they stick to it. Can't really find that fits the description, many are similar however, quite a few not just inedible but poisonous. Tomorrow gonna try again.
What's missing from the list of identification traits (good chance with others) is the growth habit.What's missing from the list of identification traits (good chance with others) is the growth habit. Three types: - singles - gregarious or troops - clusters Picrel found in garden illustrates the cluster type - yet to identify -, they grow out of one base. The gregarious also means growing in group but the stipes have their own origins and they stand a bit further apart, toadstools growin in fairy rings belong here (we call these witch circles, wiches came here to eat fly agaric to fly). Singles are self explanatory.
I look nearly just as young as I did 10 years ago. I just had the idea of visiting my old high school and going inside of the library during lunch time and seeing if anyone would notice that I'm much older than them. R8 my trespassing idea.
This school allows students to drive away to go to lunch, so I would blend in pulling in with my car during lunch time. I just have no idea when lunch begins or ends. Maybe I can meet cute zoomer girls or finally read in a quiet place unlike my house.
>>38810 >0) Verify if neighboring independent powers can launch any offensive and calculate them if possible. How the player picks whom the independent attacks? What prevents a player using the independent to weaken a rival? Well, among us, known posters I assume we could check which is the most feasible avenue of attack for the independent territory, without being (too) partial about it. >everyone has the spreadsheet on hand So we need to make a spreadsheet as well. >Support Attack I guess this order has a prerequisite: an Attack has to go against a neighbouring province they can join in. >The economic output necessary for production must come from territories with a continuous connection through friendly territories to the final territory What if there are several patches of land on the hand of a player? Do everyone has a capital, and only those areas count, which are connected to that? >economic output Is this simply a number which tells us how much unit can be produced on a territory? They just simply add up? Or there's a formula to that? >Transit Rights So this is kind of a diplomacy? Also this is basically for moving units (from the territory they were produced, or stationed)?
>>38946 >How the player picks whom the independent attacks? What prevents a player using the independent to weaken a rival? The player doesn't pick, it follows a strict set of rules, attacking if say, they can afford to outflank by a certain number, >I guess this order has a prerequisite: an Attack has to go against a neighbouring province they can join in. By name, yes, but not necessarily by mechanics. A player may want to make harassing attacks without committing to holding the captured territory, and this would require renaming it. Or leave it as it is, easier to understand and a player may send a single unit to Attack and all else as Support Attack. >Do everyone has a capital, and only those areas count, which are connected to that? No, as: >What if there are several patches of land on the hand of a player? Each produces and distributes units on its own. >Is this simply a number which tells us how much unit can be produced on a territory? They just simply add up? Or there's a formula to that? Simple addition. Risk usually has a bonus if some areas are held in their entirety. Most simply every territory can have the same value, such as 1. Maybe some areas have more, like 3. For balance during pre-game territorial distribution there's a separate randomization for each production value, so each player gets 1 territory with a worth of 3 and 3 with a worth of 1 or something in this line. >So this is kind of a diplomacy? Yes, players will already be informally discussing truces and alliances (neither needs a specific mechanic, it's simply where the players decide to attack) anyway. >Also this is basically for moving units (from the territory they were produced, or stationed)? Yes.
Today I had to bury the 6th dead bird this year. Not even this year, this summer! I would say I never ever buried this much but frankly before this I had to do this only twice in my whole life. I dunno what's going on with them. It would be easier to just dump them into the dumpster but frankly I rather spend some energy and give them an ok final rest. During digging I came across a very interesting archaeological findings: this tank on picrels. It wasn't mine and not any of my pals owned such or even played around that spot in our childhood so I suppose one of my family members owned this there are some possibilities. What Bernd think what type of tank is this? I think it has the Sherman looks.
Also this can be a general vehicle/weapons thread as well.
>>40553 >MILVEHCOE I thought you were sarcastic. Meanwhile it's reality. >export at least 30 Lance Turrets from MILVEHCOE to Hungary. Those will be slapped onto those vehicles we're gonna produce. Australia-Hungary STRONK!
Besides Rheinmetall, Dynamit Nobel Defence also opens a site here, chiefly for manufacturing but it will serve r&d purposes too. Or at least d. First they gonna start producing Explosive Reactive Armors, then a couple years later with the second phase come the RGW parts. They're gonna develop a local version for the Hungarian Defense Forces, probably based on the RGW 110. Judging by the looks RGW is a man-portable dildo launcher into the enemy's mom's vagina. Will be glorious.
>>40575 That depends what counts as a major war. But both Rheinmetall and Dynamit Nobel are established companies, probably have clientele to sell the stuff, or maybe there are already orders in place. Apparently these investments are part of the so called "Zrínyi program" which aims to revitalize our arms industry beside modernizing the Defense Forces. We not just buy foreign products (liek Leopard 2, self-propelled artillery, airplanes), but manufacture what we can, and develop what we need, to mitigate dependence. The first one was a deal with a Czech company, bought licenses of small arms, pistol, smg, assualt rifle (I can recall the Cz BREN 2).
