I just realised something... something spooky as fuck.
You know how sumo is derived from some ancient rituals? How it was performed in shrines, to appease the kami, to ensure prosperity? It was only later professionalised, and is now performed on a national level by salaried wrestlers, but there are still many religious elements, from how the ring is consecrated by a priest before each tournament, yokozuna entering the ring with that big white rope around his belt, to wrestlers actually throwing salt into the ring before each bout as a means of consecration. It is a deeply religious ritual, somehow performed to appease the kami for the entire nation of Japan. Kinda like how the ancient Olympic Games were performed on temple grounds, and were a form of vitalist worship of Greek gods.
You know when's the last time sumo wasn't performed as scheduled? March 2011. The March of the earthquake and tsunami that rekt Japan. But guess what? The tournament was cancelled a month before. Because of some match-fixing scandal. Yep, that's right. And the earthquake happened 2 days before the tournament was scheduled.
The earthquake happened because the sumo ritual wasn't performed. Because the kami weren't appeased. They were pissed and caused the earthquake as a warning.
March Tournament starts this Sunday! I doubt Terunofuji recovered already. I think it would be better to recover fully than to push it and get hurt. IF can recover fully. So probably Takakeisho will be a ronery ozeki still. He has to push on and win. He is consistently able to gain +10 victories, so I think he can get the yusho. That would be the second in a row. I bet he'll try everything, he will give everything he has, I expect good bouts will close each day. Three sekiwakes, Wakatakakage, Hoshoryu, Kiribayama. Perhaps Hoshoryu has the most potential, he is the youngest of the three, hopefully a long career still in front of him, last time an injury prevented him from getting that 10+ wins. Who will be the next ozeki? One step below Wakamotoharu catching up with his borther. Tobizaru is there too, facing tough opponents I doubt he will stay. Further down Abi might rise, but I think for Ryuden that's about the top. Towards the end of the banzuke we find Kinbozan and Hokuseiho, fresh from juryo, how they'll fare here? And then Oho is still in, I hope he can improve.
In Juryo Asanoyama is at the top, he'll win ofc. Unless Ichinojo - who fell out from Makuuchi - can stop him in this. Or maybe Tochinoshin.
Juryo Ochiai is interesting jumping into Maegeshira due to amateur sumo, and now racking up the score in juryo, the second one today. He looks strong and has some skills. It isn't going well for Tochimusashi. Atamufuji really tried, and was stronger. But fell first, was directed away. Diamami vs Enho. The previous still can't squat. First win for Enho!!!! He tried to pull him down, did not manage, then tried to pushed him out, it worked. Chiyomaru vs Roga. It wasn't straightforward for Roga, but managed. Chiyonokuni vs. Ichinojo. Considering the first one was also high up in Makuuchi, Ichinojo did good job. His 3rd win. Asanoyama vs. Tohakuryu. What a bout! Tohakuryu started strong, surprised the ex-ozeki. He recovered then after a bit of chase he pushed T. out of the dohyo. Looked quite funny. 5 spotless 3-0.
Makuuchi Tochinoshin is up in Makuuchi today. Lost against Chiyoshoma. Oh well. Oho vs. Bushozan. I was hoping for an Oho win. He tired out from the relentless pushypuhy attacks of Bushozan. Sad. It won't be any easier for Oho. From previous matches it seems for me he lost some muscles, getting weaker. Hokuseiho won against Kinbozan. Good.
Juryo Three rikishis with 8-1, two veterans - Asanoyama, Ichinojo - and a fresh meat - Ochiai. Who will be able to hand on today? In the lower ranks, quite ok matches they are trying. Ochiai vs. Atamifuji. Atami isn't that easy opponent, they did not get into long deadlocks, both were activly trying to break it. Atamifuji rolled Ochiai out in the end. I think Ochi tired out and couldn't correct in the end. Atami was very pleased when watching back the footage. Ochiai 8-2. Tochimusashi vs Daiamami. Another long bout, but lotsa standstills. Tochi won. Ichinojo vs. Roga. Paperform. Ichinojo 9-1. Oshoma vs Tochinoshin. The veteran hurt his shoulder. Too bad. He started out well. Oshoma took the tachiai carefully. Asanoyama vs. Enho. The match many waited for. Many cheered for Enho from the audience, they were very audible. Enho was very energetic and Asanoyama had to catch up to hold him down. Both fell but Enho was below. Asanoyama 9-1. Btw. Gonoyama catched up to Ochiai, 8-2.
Makuuchi Midori still standing unbeaten 9-0 at the start. I thought Tohakuryu stepped out before he stepped out, but he was only on the straw. Oho fell forward. Too bad. He's getting beaten too frequently. He needs 4 moar wins to stay in. He is too strong for Juryo however. Takarafuji vs Bushozan. LÖL
Yesterday Haru basho was concluded. I think couple of noteworthy things to mention.
First Ichinojo managed to beat Asanoyama in the race for juryo yusho. Which might not have been an actual race for them, juryo probably doesn't feel much of a thing. Their aim is the top ranks of makuuchi. Ochiai, the fresh meat, started out quite well, reaching 10 wins. On the last day he had to face Asanoyama, and put up a good fight, the ex-ozeki had to work hard for their point. Ochiai has great promise, the is well rounded - not just in waist girth, but in skills, he is able to use different techniques and can defend against different ones. I think Slov said, he was amateur champion.
In Makuuchi, first and foremost I want to express my disappointment in Ryuden's performance. He got beaten 13 times. Will fall far back from his place at Maegeahira 2. He isn't that good obviously, but I expected something better. Oh well. With Takakeisho suffering another injury, his dreams to become yokozuna have to be put on ice for a bit. Maybe one day. But supposedly Terunofuji is back from May, so it will be harder to win those yusho's that needed for the title of grand champion. Hokuseiho's 9-6 score means climbing up in the ranks, that's good. But he is not that good, the boys in the upper ranks will beat him. He is quite stationary, and can't lower his center of gravity. He could compensate with strength, but packing muscle needs time. Oho got it bad, only 7-8. From M15 he will fall back to juryo I suspect. He is strong for that, so gonna be back in makuuchi soon. Shodai 10-5, gonna be back in sanyaku ranks. Takayasu I think is too old now to reach higher titles. Midorifuji will always be too small and light for the largest rikishis. He is great entertainment tho. Hoshoryu needs to learn humility, he is very good fighter, he puts in everything. Kinbozan is a promising youth, seems better than Hokuseiho, at least got better results. Wakamotoharu caught up with his brother. This will be interesting. And for the yusho. Congrats Kiribayama! He had to beat the main contender Daieisho twice to become the champion. He is a sekiwake, and got his second double digit win in a row (11-4, 12-3). If he is able, then in May could reach the ozeki title, which would finally solve the lonely ozeki problem of the banzuke. Could he keep the title however? He also doesn't seem like a yokozuna material, but can never know. Takakeisho is neither, but has the chance.
Russians won't encircle Bakhmut and have even lost ground on the southern road, but they keep pushing within the city itself. It seems Ukraine already removed their good troops from inside the city long ago.
>>50013 We should hire them to pacify the favelas.
>>50015 I think the actual lines around Bakhmut fluctuates constantly. Some say it is used by both sides to grind the other's meat, so from Russian viewpoint keeping Bakhmut open allows more Ukrainians to enter, who then are getting killed or maimed. >already removed their good troops But then with what force they perform their counter-pushes to threw Russians back and retake those streets?
My opinion, as I wrote above, Bakhmut is not important anymore and encirclement is not a priority, it's about Chasiv Yar and the high ground along the canal. If they take Chasiv Yar, Bakhmut will be encircled anyway.
Caspian Report. I dunno where they get their data about the Russian spending but, they say: >US spent $76 billion >Russia spent $18 billion They don't mention the EU moneyz. But note the Ukraine conflict is still a bargain for the US as far as proxy-wars go. https://invidious.snopyta.org/watch?v=A9m7EtNXipk https://youtube.com/watch?v=A9m7EtNXipk [Embed]

Last year I found out there's native Linux version of the Baldur's Gate Enhanced Editions. They are working well but I don't think I'll ever finish a playthrough again. Back then I finished original BG, and BG2, but not the Throne of Bhaal expansion. Damn long games. Enhanced Edition makes it possible to play this classic DnD based crpg on modern steel, fixes bugs, changes some rules, adds new NPCs with quests, new items, two new expansions (The Black Pits - arena fight generator?, and Siege of Dragonspear - which is a module for the original story, taking part between BG1 and BG2). It seems okay all in all.
The most played games on Steam really surprise me. They are really simple and old, like counter Strike and TF 2, I don't understand how people played them when they came out, let alone now and let alone this many of them. 1.3 Million are playing Counter Strike right now. People are weird.
As a note: Baldur's Gate 3 is under development, it is available as early access game. I highly doubt I'll ever play it. I read the synopsis of the plot, it's ridiculous. It's about alien abduction, mind control parasites, and spaceships.

We have a butifel weather this weekend, yesterday took a stroll. Spring arrived in full force, beetles, flowers, buds sprouting. Air felt very gud too. We had great wind gusts in February, and early March. Results are shown. Found a set of teeth. I think boar. It had to be there for a long time, the jaw feels like a fossil and not like a bone.

First thing first: That dude of the Primitive Technology channel and all his copycats have a great advantage: access to unlimited supply of bamboo. Unlimited to their objectives. That stuff is great, tuff as shit, light as feather, can be used to many purpose with little modification and not too much work.
I also read most of this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Data_Protection_Regulation#Responsibility_and_accountability I think technology and it's use are running forward and lawmakers lag behind. Those who spent any time in the past two decades on the internet have a giant heap of data about them. I think Bernd posted a video about a security eggsbert, I think he works kind of a private investigator many time cooperating with officials and he said in that video anonymizing data worth nothing it can be de-anonymized with ease, and both companies and govt agencies do. Now this law was passed at 2016. This year the EU countries have to start implementing it. Who knows how long it takes until it finishes. The whole stuff is kinda vague (it can be modified when necessary tho), and I don't know for example how the EU can force a foreign company to do whatever? There are sanctions but what jurisdiction the EU has over a US based firm for example Facebook and how the EU will force the sanctions onto for example said company?

99 per cent of today’s globally produced hydrogen is ‘grey’ hydrogen made from fossil fuels, with annual CO2 emissions exceeding those of the entire country of Germany. Second, fossil-based ‘blue’ hydrogen, which is being promoted as a ‘low-carbon’ alternative, has a climate footprint that is nearly as bad when its total emissions are taken into account. Finally, even ‘green’ hydrogen, which is considered ‘carbon free’ but accounted for only 0.04 per cent of global hydrogen production in 2021, comes with serious challenges and risks. It is energy inefficient, behaves as a potent indirect greenhouse gas, and production on a large scale requires vast amounts of land, water and renewable energy. Its production can fuel ‘green grabbing’ – the appropriation of land and resources for environmental ends. An inflated demand for hydrogen is also being used as a Trojan horse to prolong the use of fossil fuels. Kek.
Wanna watch The Longest Yard, the original Burt Reynolds movie. I only see two remakes, the Mean Machine with Vinnie Jones, and the Adam Sandler comedy from 2005. Probably the only good Adam Sandler movie. It's greatest selling point is the catchy tunes played in the background and the supporting cast. Judging by the screenshots it follows the original story quite tightly. The Mean Machine is adapted to the circumstances of a Bri'is prison and normal football. It was entertaining too. One more remake was made, and Egyptian one: Captain Masr in 2015. Not sure if it's available anywhere, or has any English dubs or subs. Also features normal football.
I think I mentioned this in previous thread or something. It started out as a cozy movie about "ebil US govt fueling drug addiction in the US so they can finance their ebil foreign wars covertly". Then they started to shoehorning in more and more stronk PoC women, embodiment of wisdom, will, patience, resolute. Now it's about how these women shepherd impatient childish men, a true masterpiece of our time.
>>49933 >Oh yeah, they are good. There's a new TV show with Bruce Campbell starring in it. May watch that in the future. There's also some Evil Dead games I could play though. If I have the time.
There was also a reboot movie starring a woman and her children I think. Didn't like it

Maybe they ran out of content to show and decided to use that film to "stretch out the film". Maybe
>>49985 Since then I discovered The Ark. I couldn't watch more than one and a half episodes. Background story: the Earth will die so they send Arks to supposedly habitable planets, the story centers around the 1st Ark which they thought has the best chance for success. Some space crap hits the spaceship and destroys the part where the leadership was quartered, and large part of rations and water and such, and the survivors have to make things work. First the good things: occasionally it has genuinely funny moments. This is rare. The bad things: the rest. It's woke as fuck ofc which I could ignore if the rest of the things weren't stupid and illogical as fuck. Liek: The ship has these rotating parts, right, to make gravity. But the rotation "creates gravity" only in the rotating part, due to the centrifugal force. It should be a giant wheel with a long walkway around in it where people can walk on the surface. It's an illusion of gravity but still. The ship doesn't have this, and people can walk at any part of the ship. Or they decide to grow food, because they lost much of the rations. Some nerd smuggled a big box of soil onto the ship somehow (how???). It's a big box, but not that large to be honest (like a man's height), and they have to produce food for about 150 people! They spread the dirt finger thin, and there are areas has no other use just to walk on it! Why???? Put that shit into tubs or pots! Much better use. Remember this wankery in Seattle? Exactly. There is this annoying chick who talks fast and a lot, oh so quirky. Her job position is in sewage control. Turns out she is a genius with 4 master degrees! Why would they give her the job of shoveling shit?! She's a fucking rising star! And can't even blame fucking patriarchy since the captain and whatever high officers on the ship were women! Also it's stupid for such character to be chatty, such person spends awful lot of time just reading and thinking and being lost in her own little world doing her projects. She should be awkward in a very different, introvert way.
>>50009 Oh yeah, the woke shit. They are racist as fuck. For these guys race shouldn't matter because there is no difference right, but they stack the deck with all kinds of people because they are apparently different... This line was told by a character: >couples couldn't come together in the Ark, because had to ensure genetic diversity What the fuck? Are they implying that a couple from the same uh not-race-but-uh-group-culture-thingy is practically incest? Do wokes say that there is actually race despite denying the existence of races? Of there is only 1 human race then how would be a group more diverse with people from whatever part of the world than just from one place? Btw, I have not noticed East Asians in the movie. No Chinks, Japs, Mongols, Koreans, Vietnamese or such. Weird. Gurl Power all over. Thin chick beating up men casually. The 4 masters degrees 19 yo. chick - way to present realistic expectations for the young generation of grills, no pressure.
I figured a lot of the things I wanna talk about are fairly mundane and cannot fit into any topic at all so I'll make this thread for the mundane things in life no one can pinpoint and make a thread with. You can talk about anything in this thread that you don't feel making a thread over
>>48032 How is the education level in Russia? It seems to be a trend on imageboards for people to promote studying there but there must be something happening in the background I assume. That being said, I don't think studying there can't be as bad taking into account institutions tend to insert useless subjects involving social sciences on universities here. After finishing my current studies I would like to get into studying something related to computer science there, possibly robotics, maths or nanotechnology if only to see what could happen.
I can't answer this question completely because I had no education except Russian one, so can't compare. It is very diverse, from relatively good to completely bad. There are "big" universities with long history like MGU, MFTI, MIFI etc, some "medium" ones (also with history but not so famous), plenty of small ones that mostly take your money. Big ones may be very different depending on department. I've studied in big one and can say that it was relatively difficult, but some people from other faculties had easy mode for all 5 years.
Russian high education has some specific that foreigners wouldn't understand. For example, most of men go to university not for education but to avoid conscription (especially in past, when it was 2 years). There is also some specifics from Soviet time, when USSR overproduced engineers and higher education became some kind of necessity for average person, even if he don't know anything after university. There are plenty of jokes about vacancies of janitors that have university education as requirement. These things lead to situation when average student go to university not for education but just for diploma, so university staff also don't care too much about education in this circumstances. Although it all depends on you. If you want to learn something, you will.
I don't really know how different is education of foreigners though. Our group had 3 foreigners from Uzbekistan, they were sent by some industrial company that payed for their education. They didn't study anything and in the end they decided to stay in Russia, tricking that company to "forgot" that they had contract (I guess they've just bribed someone). Only thing I remember about them is that they were ok with drinking beer with us because "Allah wouldn't see us here" (c). There were also completely foreign groups (from Vietnam or Cambodia, don't know) who didn't know Russian and were rarely seen.
>It seems to be a trend on imageboards
I don't think that it is good advice.
>institutions tend to insert useless subjects involving social sciences on universities here.
This happens here too. For example, we (metallurgical engineers) had course of Russian language (lol), course of Philosophy (where first words of professor literally were "you all dirt and shit, I don't want to see all of you"), oversized math course that is completely unrelated to our profession etc.
>>48057 >How is the education level in Russia? I'd assume varying level as everywhere. How proficient will you be on a field depends on yourself what you are willing to learn besides they give you on universities. There is a false assumption that universities give you a working knowledge on a field you can do a job, accomplish a work. They could give you a foundation, or a set of information which makes you familiar with concepts, which then helps you learn your actual job when you found one. You yourself have to seek out the sources of knowledge, and acquire that knowledge, and do practical things to be a master of the thing that makes you stand out from the crowd of mediocre students and makes others - professors, people working in that industry - interested in you, and help you with your carrier by providing opportunities. You have to have an entrepreneurial/adventurous mindset to move your arse and actually do something, participate in things and put yourself close to opportunities which you can recognize and exploit. Otherwise doesn't matter what university you are student of. Or have rich, influential parents with connections, who secure a career for you. >trend on imageboards for people to promote studying there I did not notice this. Do you think it is a good idea to listen anonymous people on imageboards (beside this board ofc, we only give good advis, based on legit information)?
>>48057>>48060 >institutions tend to insert useless subjects involving social sciences on universities here. >This happens here too Yeah, filler subjects are everywhere. Sometimes (frequently) they are politically motivated, sometimes just because they have to fill the curriculum, and they have to work with the professors available, who work on certain fields. Sometimes both.
>>48057 >computer science there, possibly robotics, maths or nanotechnology
>>48064 About filler subjects, I used to think the same but now I wonder. I studied computer science and I had philosophy and some social thing science and I kind of enjoyed it. Its like it was engaging different part of your brain, teachers weren't harsh on us, so we could relax a bit there while still gaining some knowledge. Not directly related to computer science ofc but might be still useful (since as an engineer you're probably still going to be dealing with other people), and even if this isn't the case it might be helping you grow as a person in other areas. People do philosophy all the time since everyone nowadays needs to have opinion on everything, so might as well get some education to do it slightly better. Even my proffessors of purely technical subjects would do that, like my algorithm teacher lecturing us that yeah we should ban people from driving once we get automated cars good enough since it kills less people and therefore it is moral thing to do. I think the idea is, and I can get behind it, that people with higher education should be above the ordinary men and not just a specialised worker in a company. Therefore this education should include broader topics, to sort of make you more into this renessaince man. I think it'd be beneficial if both students and their teachers didn't think about those subjects as fillers.
When a trading post was established somewhere by the colonizers what were the main buildings they erected there? They obviously built some kind of a stockade as a defensible strong point, and there had to be a harbor. What else?
A year passed and again this day commemorates the foundation of Hungary, this is 1018th birthday. We celebrate this national holiday with listening to politicians mixing irrelevant daily politics into historical events in the morning and watching fireworks in the evening. Budapesterners can witness the procession of state founder Saint Stephen's Holy Dexter. Also all the local communities have their own little celebrations. This is the third time I make this thread, and I won't post much, maybe I'll post something about what happened today - if anything interesting - later.
>>49968 In 1848 they had quite a few months to arrange foreign purchases. The revolution basically was done on March 15th, then with the blessing of the king they started the legislative work, on the 22th they accepted the law about setting up the national guard, the recruitment started in May. The first military challenge was the Serbian revolt, started in late May - early June. While this was part of the Habsburg wider strategy, it did not meant the start of the war of independence. The Court was busy elsewhere, they had problems in Czechia, Vienna, and chiefly Italy. They had to consolidate the situation first. The war starts essentially with Jelacic's intervention, on September 11st he crosses the river Drava from Croatia, as the agent of the Court (and not like a Croatian separatist). Before the Croatian mobilization they might delayed the transports with bureaucratic bs, but from late March to early September it was peace on paper. I found that the first, earliest purchase was the Belgian, they bought 4-5000 muskets. From England they also procured 19-20000. The officer entrusted with the deal was sent abroad on July 2. So the guns were brought in the next two months. This officer, called Sztankó Soma (~Samuel Stanko, from Northern Hungary), during autumn also managed to smuggle machines and equipment necessary for manufacturing weapons, and percussion caps. Then he set up the factories. To close down his history: he participated in the fights too. Got 12 years of prison, sit 3 years, got amnesty. Then teacher. After the Austro-Hungarian compromise officer again in the Hungarian Defense Force. Retired in 1875. Died in 1896, because of his illness - I dunno what it was - he committed suicide. May the soil be light for him.

I'm looking for a car but I don't know much about them. I am thinking of a car like a Fiat 500 or a VolksWagon Beetle. What other cars are there like this, cars that are small so they are easy to park and don't use much fuel but that also look interesting and nice.
So these aren't just her thoughts about this tranny movement, and her struggle against, but one can filter out some other cool stuff. Remember the quotes are taken out from context to add my bs to it. Liek she writes about that if she born 30 years later, she herself might have been considered this trans fad to get into. She seems to hated herself and her womanhood in her teenage years. And she says: >believe I could have been persuaded to turn myself into the son my father had openly said he’d have preferred. So being all feminist, is basically her dad did not love her enough, did not accept her as is. Then: >Simone de Beauvoir’s words: ‘It is perfectly natural for the future woman to feel indignant at the limitations posed upon her by her sex. S. de B. was a feminist philosopher. Quite interesting she doesn't blame the patriarchy to imposed limitations on women, but says their sex does that. It seems she really knew the difference between man and woman. It quite questions the attitude of feminism our day who just want women to be men. (And not in the tranny way.) Questions those who claim women can do anything just as well as men. Be it shaving their moustache, manspreading, or sumo wrestling.
I'm not finished with the article yet. But it's getting late. She writes well (she's a fucking author of books, I would expect her to do so), and it's easy to read. Maybe Bernd should too.
Another one. Seems the most recent, from last October. https://www.jkrowling.com/opinions/my-article-for-the-sunday-times-scotland-on-why-i-oppose-gender-recognition-act-reform/ The second argument is that men who transition, uniquely among all other categories of those born male, never harm women. Yet there is no evidence to show that trans women don’t retain male patterns of criminality. According to Jo Phoenix, Professor of Criminology at the University of Reading, “Sex is the single strongest predictor of criminality and criminalisation. Since criminal statistics were first collected (in the mid 1850s) males make up around 80% of those arrested, prosecuted and convicted of crime. Violent crime is mostly committed by males…This remains the case regardless of stated gender identity.” The Ministry of Justice’s own figures show that there are proportionately more trans-identified men in prison for sexual offences than among incarcerated males taken as a whole. So it is fine to label a group of people sharing a certain characteristic and claim they are dangerous in this case, but it's not fair racist to say that another group of people sharing certain characteristics has X amount of share in certain crimes and are dangerous in another case? Nobody but the very naive can fail to be aware that predatory men are capable of going to great lengths to gain easy access to victims, and have often sought out professions or special status that offer camouflage for their activities. Sex offenders have historically been found amongst social workers, teachers, priests, doctors, babysitters, school caretakers, celebrities and charity fundraisers, We have a saying: opportunity makes the thief. I think most people did their predatory thing, because they could in these positions and jobs, it was too easy, and lack of self control made them predators, and not consciously sought out, occupied these jobs and positions so they can predate, they weren't predators first and seek ways to make it easier to do their thing. But I do agree with one point of the article, that there will be men who exploit the possibility of claiming to be trans, to use it in their own advantage in one way or another. Another thing I do not like, that she (and her sisters-in-arms) think that society is divided into two hostile groups men and women, where men do nothing just victimize women; and they don't think society is one group, where individuals do harm to other individuals and the society as a whole. Noone talks about the men who were victimized by men, robbed, beaten, raped, or murdered. Noone talks about the abused men, both physically but mostly emotionally, who are oppressed by exploitative women; who can't ask for help because they get shamed and ridiculed, or can't defend themselves fearing from getting shamed, or harmed, labeled in front of whole society, fear from abuse by cops, or inmates. They fear of giving a fucking slap - not a beating, a slap - because they might face repercussions they couldn't handle. Noone talks about children abused by their own mother, both psysically but mostly emotionally, who can't even comprehend what's going on, and grow up into a broken person.
I dreamt I was walking down the streets and was talking to someone. The place looked like a village with old school abode peasant houses (nor Kádár-cubes, or these current new constructions) with old dark tiled roofs, with small yards used as vegetable garden. The houses weren't look new, weren't in really bad condition either, but the wire net fences look rusty and old. The fruit trees in the gardens had no leaves and there were no veggies in the gardens just the prepared beds. The roadside grass was green and lively however, so maybe it was early spring. The road we were walking on had tarmac, the roadside had grass, the ditches of the drainage, then more grass. I don't recall sidewalks. There was a bus stop, and a small roadside market at one point. The topic of the conversation I had with the man I was walking on the road was a radio personality from the '50s or '60s maybe, I can't really tell. He had a Jewish sounding name and was on the radio frequently, most of his work tied to it. He is a fictitious person my mind generated, kind looked like a bald Allende. And my conversation partner walking along me might have been him as well. He received with much indignation when I told he was part of communist propaganda.
>>49561 >we don't have the resources a Not sure. I think there are a lots of misinformation. Creating fear is good to make people more easily influenceable and controllable. Informing people that "we're all gonna die of overpopulation" is creating fear. So all the voice that says that, I doubt em.
What I found weird is while in Europe they cry about aging society and lacking in working hands, they aren't really quick about introducing automation.
>>49562 >>49564 I usually here the opposite, people claiming that we actually have enough and can host more people.
It depends on what standard of living we expect and how much of the environment we are willing to destroy. We don't have the resources for everybody on earth to live like an American but we do have the resources for everybody on earth to live like a North Korean. Land is also a resource and even rich nations like Germany lacks it and could not host a population that wanted a suburban lifestyle like the US and Australia.
We also lack the rare earth materials to transition to green energy using the battery technology we currently have, there are many other issues with green energy right now as well, so you would have to accept global warming if you wanted to increase the population size.
>>49825 He just called your bluff, dummy. Nostr provides a solution to the problems of CP well poisoning and corrupt jannies that you described. Your reaction to this will reveal whether you are acting in good faith.
>>49829 Well from your comment I can tell, that you don't act in good faith. Not just because you are calling me names, but because you haven't actually replied to my question, served any useful information just a list of gibberish. Then you put words into my mouth, then you try to cast judgement on me along made up criteria. Plus acting all cryptic you also try to cause confusion. You also seem to know me, while you shroud yourself into protective anonymity where you demand from people to prove themselves. Using the word "jannies" also speak volumes and indicates you really should go back to 4chan. So my reaction is ignoring you from now on, and ask others to do similarly with these posts in this thread (or elsewhere really). Luckily all the rest of the few users, /kc/ still have, know better.
>>49972 Hello fren. Music is better than expected, a bit chaotic, it's liek three different tunes played at once. There is a buzzing sound I can't identify the instrument it is made with. Kinda feel like jew's harp or throat singing. Feel free to sit on this board as well, look around in the Catalog.
>>49924 >from this scene in the movie Also sounds like something that could appear in other movies. Liek some Bill Murray ones. >try to switch the Invidious instance In the past frequently failed with such tries, so I gave up on it. >The media could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed or because the format is not supported. Etc. >that worked for me Working for me too. >the music video. [...] 80s Oh god that hairstyle. I rather just listen the song, because that's ain't bad. Talking about 80s. Listened Anthrax's Fistful of Metal album. Starts with Metal Militia by Metallica... :^)
