I kinda lost what was happening after the original kc/int went down. I didn't know where you migrated and just forgot about int and imageboards in general. Today I stumbled upon this place. Can you brink me up to speed as to what was happening? Why did kc go down? What was the story after that? How did you end up here? What percentage of the original poster base survived? What quality change did all this bring to kc/int spirit? Thank you
>>37001 I dunno why KC main died, we are an offshoot from a year earlier it went down for good. We moved here little before that event. Bunch of little descendant boards were out there, but only three remained, Kohl has the most posters, and there's Ersnt, and us.
>>37006 Why do you choose this place over those two?
I believe this is the smallest part of the /kc community out of these three? It seems like it bounds to transit into something different than /kc, although with a heavy /kc heritage. Assuming it won't just die.
>>37035 >It seems like it bounds to transit into something different than /kc, although with a heavy /kc heritage It already has to some extent. The topics discussed are a subsection of kc topics but there's a greater number of lengthier, information-heavy posts and they stay for a long time because repurposing threads is favored over creating new ones. >Assuming it won't just die. It survived with a tiny population for a long time, it's not dying anytime soon.
>>37035 We are earlier than those two. We are going for four years now, as my learnt colleague said above, with tiny userbase, in the foreseeable future the board will stay and remain active on a daily basis.
I got the sudden idea to look up an old Hungarian science-fiction magazine, the Galaktika. I remember seeing some when I was a kid. It was published from 1972 to 1995, then restarted in 2004. They have a website now too, but after a quick look-see I have no good opinion on that for now. Anyway I wanna browse old ones, I haven't seen on the site any, but Wikipee linked an archived ftp server with the first five issue. Maybe I'll find more. I hope, coz I won't be able to post here much otherwise. I thought if I find something interesting, I write a little, make screenshots, post pictures from them. Or just look up Boros Zoltán's and Szikszai Gábor's works, they made great many illustrations for the magazine throughout the years. Curiously their website has a "Gallery" option, but I found an empty page there.
Interesting, that upper right phase has some white patches. Printing error or some specific intent?
Bradbury was some kind of cult writer in USSR - a rare situation for modern foreign writers in iron curtain times, when only specific western works were printed. Maybe his anti-war stance was the answer, or just his humanist and pacifist style ("action-styled" fiction was very uncommon for ideological reasons, because in future wars don't exist).
For some reason Sheckley also was very popular, I guess even more than on the west, where there were plenty of other writers (Soviet citizens bought any non-standard book they could find, so every serious foreign thing became a hit).
>>36942 >Bernd can post stuff here, other mags, sci-fi, fantasy, pics, vids, maps, artwork from games (genre appropriate), space exploration, etc.
Some artwork from old children book about Moon that I've read when I was kid (actually, it was my father's book that he also read when he was kid). Interesting that there were two prints, in 1965 and 1974, and version of 65 (that I had) included some scheme of perspective Apollo mission. Version of 1974 had much more realistic drawings without 60's sci-fi feel (it would be strange to draw some abstract things after 1969), so it is less interesting.
Sadly, I've had no paper book available now, and internet has only 1974 version in large resolution, but there few small images from 1965.
>>36945 >Printing error or some specific intent? Reminds me of cirrostratus, but I've no lilac fart what could that be. >Bradbury was some kind of cult writer in USSR In fact the article in #2 about Bradbury's works was written by a Russian, certain Kirill Andrejev (with Hungarian spelling, couldn't find him quickly with ddg so I gave up). >in future wars don't exist Another article in there says the narration in sci-fi changed, there were novels and shorts about wars and destruction, I assume the World Wars' resonance (there were alien civilizations depicted in a way that mirrored Nazi Germany and the imperialist Japan), and then it changed, the encounters between humans and aliens turns to peaceful.
>>36989 I fancy those winglets on those rockets. >2nd pic They really wanted to represent all kinds of propulsion of vehicles. https://youtube.com/watch?v=nVOaDfGOPGs [Embed] >>36990 Sounds like a cool book.
Policja na imprezie ojca Tadeusza Rydzyka. "Wykonywali służbowe obowiązki"
Rząd nie widzi nic nadzwyczajnego w zaangażowaniu policji i orkiestry reprezentacyjnej Marynarki Wojennej w obchody 28. urodzin Radia Maryja. Z informacji przekazanych przez MSWiA i MON, wynika, że policja pojawiła się tam służbowo, a orkiestra grała w ramach wykonywania "statutowych zadań”.

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: [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.
>>36895 Also put the paragraph about resources into the beggining of rationalisation part. I hope you don't mind.
Late rationalization <Germany entered the war without the resources to satisfy its military production targets, and arms output did not really take off until February 1940, from which it rose until July and stabilized. In ’42 it entered an exponential growth, the classic phase of the ”Speer miracle”, until the middle of 1943, followed by much slower growth (stagnation in some sectors), a final burst in the first half of 1944 and a slide into oblivion (figure A).
>The paper trail shows bureaucratic infighting through the France-Barbarossa interval, with economic institutions accusing each other of incompetence. This corroborates older data on production and workforce which shows the former not catching up with the latter’s growth, suggesting a decline in productivity. The concluding picture is of early war Germany “squandering its armaments advantage” through ”egotism and incompetence”. But to truly grasp war production in anticipation for Barbarossa it is necessary to know what were its ends and whether it achieved them.
>>36896 The orange paragraph is better placed within the beginning, to leave it clear the late war - early war contrast I'm talking about, the two late periods of exponential growth versus the France-Barbarossa stabilization and the early Poland-France delay. There's an unnecessary comma in >but mainly for the decision , to ditch quality for quantity and focus on proven old designs.
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
Right now, I'm just trying to sort out my programmer portfolio. I have around 2 apps that need to be completed before I start job hunting. With one of them that I may plan on releasing for public use, like in an app store or something idk
One needs to have a login option setup along with POST/GET set up working in the page properly
Just do not like my current station in life tbh.
Also managed to complete a fizz-buzz "largely by myself" using only 7 lines of python code. Some people can manage to complete the challenge using 2 lines and even 1, but it's a good start and I feel good doing it tbh
>>36815 The world is a huge toilet. He should have use that. Something always needed to separate the noble from the common. Aristocracy means the rule of the "excellent", those who are better for reasons. This separation could manifest in superior morality, or at least the appearance of such (as Machiavelli wrote the prince at least has to look like a moral person - in case if he is not). Ofc in this case the Portuguese traveller's interprets the customs for us, and who knows how was it in reality. Maybe he was aware the case of the samurai, and he wanted an explanation for that, and rationalized that the pleb had to have immoral behaviour (but in reality he wasn't a witness of the acts of the peasants, he just made that up).
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).
>>36988 I'm not sure how much in the trailer, but I think there is more than what you wrote. It can be argued if it is about current or an existing society, or a model of a hypothetical society. There's some talk in the movie itself about it. A little bit naive I think. There's an allegory of reincarnation there, but I don't think that goes anywhere further. A couple of plot twist in there, no earth shattering ones, but still, they mostly based on the lack of information the inmates have, or the lies they (perhaps) tell. Little action, while the whole movie is static, events perk up a bit. Right now I'm thinking I rewatch, I might missed some tidbits.
>>36988 Also it's more about compassion and the fact that those who are relatively well off consume more than what they need and live a wasteful life, than the societal allegory the institution in the movie represents.
>>37009 It's a mild horror. Chiefly gore, more can be found on imageboards of that. Some plotholes in the story, I remember noticing previously but now I'm 20 mins in, discovered some new. Ain't horrible, but I can imagine some might mind them.
>>36985 Okay, yesterday I managed to get over the bulk on my second sit through, and while I'll finish up today, it's enough to say a final verdict. Some spoiler could be below: It's a motley of crude ideas which fail to unfold in their entirety, and the inconsistencies in the story prevents me to build a speculation on them which could offer a closure to the story. There is no real moral to offer here, even making the ultimate sacrifice doesn't lead to a salvation, and even the promise of change is so thin, making the clemency seem just a pointless act. I think what the viewer can get out of this really depends on what mindset he/she already has. On the part of the creators and the most likely target audience it might be just a mental masturbation over a topic which won't get ever resolved - similarly to ecological problems and alcoholism how it is mentioned in the article I wrote about here: >>36878 In certain circles it's fashionable to talk about these societal problems, and this movie is a great opportunity to nod knowingly and act deebly goncerned and empathic in front of their peers. I already wrote, for a horror it's worth a watch (but don't repeat it as I did), I'm gonna hold to this opinion. It's depth is knee high, at least not ankle, but fails to bring us in to the waist.
Japan and low covid. https://index.hu/kulfold/2020/05/26/japan_koronavirus_japan_modell_fertozes_terjedes_abe_sinzo_gazdasag_valsag_jarvany/ This says in Japan was comparatively very successful handling the epidemic, despite they didn't have strict restrictions. What I found noteworthy in this article that in Japan, they didn't care if patients got covid or not, since there's no cure, the sick has to be and can only be treated as if they had "simple" pneumonia. The article also talks about the depression, despite the swell handling of the epidemic, they got into the pit. Since it started in the last quarter of 2019... Again I have to say, the depression isn't caused by this, it was already incoming, it just really doesn't help.
everything went better than expected. almost all restrictions will be lifted during the summer. people had paid holidays or at least could work from home. environment is saved. people are now super fit thanks to biking boom. Britain, USA, Brazil and other second and third world shitholes are fucked with economic crash and lots of dead people. no Asian tourists this summer in Europe, so no queues anywhere. people are afraid to use public transport, so I usually have a train car for myself. Now I hope EU and Schengen area will have a travel ban for Sweden, so Greta has to go to school.
ITT: real, mundane photographs appearing in the news (so newsworthy people) with "kino" value i.e. with enough aesthetic value to look like movie stills or paintings. I just love these. The silhouettes of these poorly lit men strike and contrast against the background of the dark blue sky and the shining glare of the city far below. At the center lies a mad man, overflowing with spirit, clearly making an inspired speech to his followers, one of which plays a horn in the background. In the second picture the contrast is emphasized further in a clever game of black silhouettes. In the third, once again there are only silhouettes but the background is simpler and the sole lightning is the glare of the leader's cellphone through the fog. It's brilliant.
>>29428 There it is again. That stupid coconut head album. Like it's supposed to be some diamond in the rough, because of the warm color temperature of the album cover coupled with 10 million fucks saying "You probably haven't heard this". Like it's supposed to be British because they spell it as Aeroplane. Like it's supposed to be an evolution of the Beatles or some other boomer crap because it contains mindless babbling to mindless guitar strumming but with the occasional horns and other crap layered on once in a while to emphasize how bad it is. That "it's the end of the world but I don't care" tone of all hipster music. That "I am an atheist and yet I too listen to boring shit music, because it's the Gospel" attitude. I bet despite all this trying to sound like shit and trying to look humble, some retard points out how technically innovative they are because the singer does some legato once in a while and avoids total cliche. When you're so white you become cryptopretentious for listening to what appears to be a Scottish sound, but don't listen to "crazy shit" ("THATS RACIST!") like Persian or Chinese music (unless it's a genre copied from western pop). This shit is for when you can't listen to any modern 90s+ popular genre because you're afraid to look like you're trying to be cool, you can't listen to Jazz or Classical because you're afraid it of appearing pretentious, you can't listen to Soul because you're afraid it will make you look too SJW, you can't listen to pop because it's just cliches, and you can't listen to Turkic music because you're afraid to look like John McAfee. It's fucking worse than those bands who do one album kind of good and subsequently shit out albums for the next 10 years because their record label promised them money and will market for them while fans argue about whether they're sellouts or not and they maintain a big enough fanbase to survive because of all those fans who "avoid the bigotry, the new stuff is good". And what makes this Indie? Because it's shit? Literally anything with some simple guitar strumming and babbling and terrible voice that just barely manages to be non-traditional, is indie. This whole copypasta can call itself indie and you wouldn't know the difference. That's because music was never not """indie""". GOD DAMNIT. BURN INDIE.REMOVE INDIE.DESTROY INDIE.DAY OF THE ENTERPRISE WHEN
I am considering faking my own death and disappearing from the human world,becoming either a travelling homeless or a "Nature man"in some forest. I know this is no easy task,it will take around one year to prepare,but im willing to go trough with it. so,give me advice and tips.
I've thought about that too. Faking your death is not so useful though. If you want to live as a travelling homeless or a nature man then a small amount of cash would still be needed. To acquire this you would either have to do whatever work you could get to survive or rely on the funds you have saved before adopting this life. The second method is better in my view, but that can't be done if you are 'dead'. My Plan is to acquire enough in shares that the dividends would be able to support me. That's probably not actually that hard as the new lifestyle would not be too expensive. You would need around 20,000 to guarantee $1200 a year100 a month. This might be enough, with the stock market as it is your $20,000 will end up being more like $27,000-$30,000 though(in the long term once the current turmoil is over). Really I would want $100,000 to grantee a comfy hermit life.
>>36991 Thanks for the link. Some titles catching my eye.
>>36998 You might be interested in the Paulines. A Hungarian founded hermit monastic order, named after Paul of Thebes. I think there are Polish white brothers today so there should be literature about them in Polish too.
ITT: we explore small boards to find cool stuff and for curiosity's sake and then report on our findings.
My search area consists of non-porn 8chan boards with a poster count in the 10-100 range, but other boards are also welcome.
How do conversations proceed? Which memes are appreciated? Is any OC produced? What kinds of threads are made? What are the board's collective opinions on its subject matter? What is its relationship to other boards? What is the userbase's ideology and outlook? How is the moderation? These are some of the questions that can be answered.
I'll start with /doomer/. At 80 posters it's second on the list, just behind /ausneets/ with 84. The subject matter and the name are one and the same.
Most threads belong in one of three categories:
-Aesthetics threads on topics such as somber art, music and architecture. Art thread had this peculiar picture. The first page houses a good thread on brutalism, though it got derailed into a conversation about women. Even the board's CSS has this feeling. -Sincere expressions of how posters are nihilistic, feel they've fucked up in life and dislike the people around them. Often start with greentext personal experiences. Drugs and family relations are common themes. -Venting against society at large.
There's a lot of hate against people, but not much between individual posters. Ideologies span the whole ecosystem of online radicalism, with anarchists, fascists, primitivists and the like.
>>36995 Quite a few of Portuguese language board exist. How this is differs from 55, for example? What is this one is about? What dedicated boards it has? How active this chan is? Do they have memes, own lingo?
>>157229 They are all Related but many Tribes Migrated in the Great Migration.
The Angles, Jutes and Saxon's conquered England but some stayed Behind, Particularly Saxons who remain as they were in what is still called Saxony, the Jutes and Angles were integrated into Danemark(the Danes themselves being a Germanic Tribe).
The Burgundians went and founded Burgundy.
The Lombards Founded Lombardy.
The Suebi would settle in Portugal but some would remain in Swabia(hence the name)
Thuringians stayed In Thurigia
The Ostrogoths conquered Italy.
The Visigoths Conquered Spain and Southern France but were pushed out by the Moors
>>157249 There is a theory that the name Frank comes from the Francisca that they were known to use, like the theory that Saxons are named after the Sax(although the Sax is also a fairly common weapon amongst most North Germanic tribes) or that the Langobards(who became the Lombards) were named after a type of axe.
Ewart Oakeshott says the Franks were the most barbarous tribe but that they absorbed the tactics and technology of those they conquered, For example, they were known to have fought in the older Germanic method of unarmoured tribesmen fighting on foot but they adopted Heavy cavalry from the Lombards who were famous for it.
>>157208 Rome, the state and the history was very inspirational throughout the ages for Europe, since it's fall, up to this day. They say history repeats itself, if one looks for an analogue for an event, it's damn sure a similar thing happened in Rome. It is very good for looking for parallel cases and examples.
>>36971 Finnic forces were stretched to the maximum and could not fully garrison their empire. Once a Kemetic revolt broke out in Egypt it was only a matter of time until the Giza Array would fall, threatening the entire Finnic civilization, and so the Finns had to draw back forces from the front to quell the uprising. Troop movements away from the front and towards uprisings further burdened logistics , allowing a strong Korean counteroffensive.
Name some idiomatic expressions from your language, give a literal translation and explain their meaning.
Cutucando onça com vara curta: "Poking a jaguar with a short stick". A reckless act.
Encher linguiça: "Filling sausages". Meaningless filler speech. Comparable to "padding out" or "beating around the bush".
Lei para inglês ver: "A law for Englishmen to see". In a strict sense this is the Feijó Law of November 7th 1831. It banned the slave trade but went completely unenforced, as it was passed only to appease Britain, which was pressuring the government to cease the import of Africans. Thus, at the time the law was said to be just for Englishmen to see, and the expression now applies to anything used only to maintain appearences. Comparable to "Potemkin village".
Tirar o cavalo da chuva: "Removing one's horse from the rain". A reference to 19th century etiquette: visitors left their horses exposed to the elements, expecting to leave quickly, but their hosts could offer to take their horses off the rain and leave them sheltered so they could spend more time. By some poorly understood semantic shift, this invitation came to mean giving up: you take your horse off the rain if you abandon some pretension.
A vaca foi pro brejo: "The cow went to the bog". A situation greatly worsened.
Dar nome aos bois: "Naming the oxen". Denouncing those involved in something, typically negative, or saying something important.
Boi de piranha: "Piranha ox". Sacrificing something of lesser value to save something greater, allegedly from cattle barges throwing away an older bovine into piranha-infested waters to save the rest. For that we have a more easily understood expression, dar os dedos para não perder as mãos ("giving away the fingers to save the hands").
Queimar a rosca: "Burning the donut". Homosex. Bolsonaro famously replied this to a homosexual on Twitter.
>>36785 I'm mentally ill bro.
I only noticed it just now that it's an idiomatic expression thread.
But it's still bad.
Sometimes I want all other Hungarians dead so I can personify our unique suffering incarnate.
>>36806 At 4:50 Sunday, I thought you were drunk. Which is very likely. Beside depressed. The Hungarian is a sanguine nation, not melancholic. Magyar tűz, szalmaláng (= Hungarian fire, flames of hay). Deep emotions, but passing fast, and changing. But since these are strong emotions it is easy to believe they are the standard.
Also some recent happening from outskirts of Moscow. Some people had some criminal conflict that resulted in shooting with hunting rifles. Reasons are unknown, although some of them already found by police. Of course at least half of them are Caucasians (in local terms).
Compared to USA, it is very rare to see any rifle shooting in Russia because civilian arms market is pretty strict and self-defense is almost prohibited. This doesn't stop that type of people though.
>>36949 SHIEEEEEEEEEEET Good car vs car action too. Keeping the white car in check. >This doesn't stop that type of people though. Yeah. Criminals have guns, they have their way to obtain it well criminals who do crimes as a "lifestyle" and not ordinary people who do a onetimer. Even in the US the vast majority of gun related deaths are results of criminal activity. And most guns that used to kill someone has illegal origin one notable exception when cops kill.
>>36957 >And most guns that used to kill someone has illegal origin From my understanding, most guns used to comit crime are bought legaly by someone who later gives the gun to the criminal. Wich is ilegal, but the guns were still obtained trough a legal method on the first place
>>36961 Okay. At least two pages discuss the source of guns. The "Availability of Guns" and "Crime and Guns". I see somewhat contradictory statements there. On one side: >Fact: Five out of six gun-possessing felons obtained handguns from the secondary market and by theft, and “[the] criminal handgun market is overwhelmingly dominated by informal transactions and theft as mechanisms of supply.” >Fact: The majority of handguns in the possession of criminals are stolen, and not necessarily by the criminals in question. 7 In fact, over 100,000 firearms are stolen in burglaries every year, and most of them likely enter the criminal market (i.e., are sold or traded to criminals). Against: >Fact: One study 7of adult offenders living in Chicago or nearby determined that criminals obtain most of their guns through their social network and personal connections. Rarely is the proximate source either direct purchase from a gun store, or even theft. This agrees with other, broader studies of incarcerated felons. >Fact: Other common arrangements include sharing guns and holding guns for others. Although the first two doesn't say the criminals who end up using guns acquired through theft, but theft is a method to fill the criminal market. And the criminal market works on the basis of acquaintenance, so yeah, they obtain it through their social network. But into that network these guns enter in illegal ways.
