Often, probably even most of the time, cats have some kind of camouflage patternation on their top halves but their underside is white. This doesn't make sense for a terrestrial hunter, the only reason one would have a white underside is if they are flying in order to camouflage them against the sky if they are being looked at from below. So the ancestors of cats must have at one point been capable of flight but have sense lost this ability. You can say what you want but the evidence is there.
Also, there may be fellows that doubt this hypothesis based on a 'lack' of evidence and who are going on what the skeletal remains tell them BUT. If the wings were made of cartilage they would not be left for us to find after all of this time and being an aerial predator it would probably nest high up and live in the mountains and so maybe there remains would not be left intact up there or the bones would get blown away, plus we currently are lacking in the amount of archaeological digs that we do in places like that.
Additionally, cats can have incredibly large ranges Tigers can have ranges up to 4000km2 and they don't even have wings, if they had wings they would have larger ranges and so maybe they would be quite rare and it would be even harder to find remains.
The notion that such small arms were used for display is silly, if that were the case sexual selection would push them to be larger not smaller, like in all the other creatures he mentions. Well dinosaurs aren't real anyway apart from birds, the rest are a joke, nobody in their right mind would say Azhdarchids are not a joke.
Can't do without a bit of Syria. Tradition. Continue discussing conflicts in third world shitholes. The hot topic these days is Ukraine however. Situation after way over a month is unsure. Russian had obvious results in the map painting department, but about how each militaries are doing the intel is unreliable. In the north changes seem to happen, previously Russian occupied settlements now under Ukrainian control again. Russians said they are withdrawing troops, Ukrainians said they're just regrouping for another attack. In the south Russians reached the Dniepr from Crimea and pushed to the east reaching Donbas, Mariupol is surrounded but not surrendered yet. Most of Luhanks oblast seems to be occupied. Clashes were had to the west over the Dnieper, up to Mykolaev and Krivoy Rog. Lots of fighting were done at Sumy and Kharkov. I think now an operational pause is going on. Now on this livemap I see many air raid sirens going off in western Ukraine. Not sure why.
Here's a handy informational from Al Jazeera. It shows who will suck the most in the EU, since official policy now seem to turning to give up Russian fossil fuels and replace them with... energy grass? I dunno, something oil from US companies, or oil from companies owned by US companies or something. Also this don't seem to show the gas situation, gas as natural gas, not benzine/gasoline/diesel or what USians calls gas. Anyway several EU countries have reasons to veto embargo on fossil fuels as weapon against Russia: - Latvia - Northern Hungary - Finland - Hungary - Lithuania - Bulgaria
>>47693 My problem with their summary of the US foreign policy that it lacks the motivation behind. Or we can call it explanation of the historical background processes. The cause of the behaviour. Just because an entity is an empire that doesn't itself the explanation for expansion, despite we can state that it is in the empire's nature to expand their borders and/or influence as much as possible. Ofc probably many root causes exist, some historical views will put more emphasis on one, some on others. For example we could say Rome waged continuous wars to fill up the slave workforce (I think it's classic Marxist explanation), so we could find an economical drive. I'm a big fan of personal motivation of the individuals and its impact on events (events doesn't happen just by themselves, but people have to make decisions which influences the direction and outcomes, there are circumstances that allow these decisions to happen/bear fruit), for example I could say Julius Caesar went to Gaul to chase his own vainglorious reasons (ok this is superficial evaluation of Caesar and his deeds, isn't really important I'm just trying to make a point). So these guys list 10 "traditional" explanations and write some lines why they aren't true. Instead of these 10 they offer "Sylvan and Majeski"'s observations as explanation, which isn't an answer for the why, just presents how the US behaves. That pyramid structured flowchart just presents what they do when they evaluate a country's fate, but doesn't give the reason why is it happening. "Because it's an empire" isn't a reason. There are reasons why predators predate (and don't eat grass for example which isn't entirely true, some of them, like canines, do sometimes).
If the Russians had a successful northern prong they could've been putting pressure on the northern road to Severodonetsk through Siversk now. It seems earlier on they lost a pontoon bridge near Serebrianka.
>>47707 I bet he'll still try to play both sides at some point.
There are pictures of executed Ukrainians appearing online, they have been killed with there hands behind their backs. Southfront(so Russian media) is saying that the Ukrainians are executing deserters and people that are trying to surrender. It's possible, the Russians probably would not take photos of people they themselves had executed. I am still not ruling out the possibility that it was done by Russians though.
I'm not going to post the pictures, they are in this article. It also says that the LPR ambassador to Russia told the Russians that the LPR and DPR have 8000 Ukrainian POWs now. At first I was sceptical but they already have around 4000 from Mariupol alone, so it's not impossible(but could still be exaggerated).
>>47696 Dogs can't eat grass, I think you mean fruit. Dogs are generalists but also interestingly enough, domestic dogs can digest more proteins than wolves can which would implied that over time they have adapted to eat a more varied diet due to living with humans. Cats are still obligate carnivores though(they eat grass but only to make themselves throw up), cats arguably are not even domesticated.
>>47707 The problem is that they have a very small professional army, most of what they have are conscripts instead. So to be involved they would have to mobilise conscripts which I don't see them doing. I don't see it tying down that much, the Ukrainians have a lot of Territorial defence units in the area and they themselves could probably handle that.
>>47708 The Ukrainians have had some issues crossing rivers too. I think the issue is that in the era of drones and satellites it's very difficult to conceal a river crossing and the equipment needed for it and once spotted it's also much easier to destroy the bridge and the convoys trying to cross it with accurate artillery fires and guided missiles. So I think they might have to give up on the northern prong until the southern one can help cover a crossing and maybe not even then.
>Ukrainians are executing deserters and people that are trying to surrender. There is a reason why deserters were executed during 100% of history. Because those who desert are doing it because they fear of dying. If they know they can get away with less then dying they will choose that. So they have a choice: - fight in battle and risk dying - desert and live, even if they have to go prison But with death as punishment for deserting the choice is this: - fight in battle and risk dying - desert and risk dying. They will most likely pick the first one since if they don't die they can hope things return to normal, but if they choose deserting, they might have to hide and flee in their whole life (they might cannot leave the country).
>Dogs can't eat grass They can. Many won't vomit it out, but pass it through their system. And it'll come out on the other end in same condition as entered, because they just can't digest it. >fruit They also can't digest all types of fruits. For example they can plum (although it gives them/some/most of them diarrhea), can't apple (it comes out same as grass), and they shouldn't eat grapes because it contains something that poison them. They can digest various vegetable cooked, even nettle, not sure raw. But even wolves eat various vegetation in the wild.
Well Belarus is a small country. They only need to tie down as much as suit their weight.
Chcesz zmarnować trochę czasu rosyjskim oficjelom? Powstała strona, dzięki której jest to możliwe!
Powstała strona internetowa, która pozwala zadzwonić do... rosyjskich urzędników. Za stworzenie witryny odpowiadają haktywiści. Jak donosi Wired, WasteRussianTime.today - bo tak nazywa się strona, automatycznie wybiera numer oficjeli z Rosji, łączy z wybranymi osobami, a następnie pozwala "zająć" im kilka chwil. Jest to już kolejny niewątpliwy wyraz sprzeciwu wobec wojny w Ukrainie.
Nie ma chyba osoby, która chociaż raz w życiu nie prowadziła rozmowy telefonicznej z botem - nawet krótkiej. Połączenia tego typu nie należą do grupy przyjemnych, a często określa się je mianem uciążliwych i natrętnych, zwłaszcza że ciężko je wyeliminować. Opcja "zablokuj numer" bywa rozwiązaniem, ale nie jest gwarancją, że nigdy więcej nie nie otrzymamy podobnego połączenia z innego numeru. Grupa haktywistów wzięła to pod uwagę i postanowiła założyć witrynę internetową - WasteRussianTime.today. Jej nazwę w przetłumaczeniu na język polski to: "zmarnuj dzisiaj rosyjski czas".
Serwis Wired wyjaśnia, że na stronie znajduje się lista numerów telefonów rosyjskiego rządu, wojska oraz wywiadu. Zaledwie kilka kliknięć pozwala na uruchomienie połączenia konferencyjnego, które łączy dwóch przypadkowych urzędników. Strona ta daje możliwość podsłuchania ich rozmowy, podczas której najprawdopodobniej będą próbowali ustalić, kto zainicjował połączenie i dlaczego ze sobą rozmawiają.
To jest cywilna interwencja: jeśli wisisz na telefonie, nie możesz zrzucać bomb, nie możesz koordynować żołnierzy, nie możesz planować inwazji
– można przeczytać na witrynie.
Każda osoba, która odwiedza witrynę może wykonać połączenie. Oprócz tego - połączenia są wykonywane automatycznie przez boty stworzone przez hakerów. Jak sami tłumaczą, zrezygnowali z możliwości bezpośredniego łączenia dzwoniących z urzędnikami, bo nie chcą narażać ich na niebezpieczeństwo. W trakcie rozmowy mogliby wypowiedzieć jakieś słowa, które w konsekwencji zdradziłyby ich tożsamość. Mają również świadomość, że nie wszyscy dzwoniący znają język rosyjski.
To wojna w Ukrainie. Po ulicach jeżdżą czołgi, są naloty, ulicami spacerują żołnierze z bronią w rękach. Telefony od ludności cywilnej z pewnością nie doprowadzą do dalszej eskalacji. To jest forma cywilnego oporu

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.
>>47628 I don't really like it. I don't like dealing with people, you can get a good quad sometimes but even then I still don't like having to talk to them and use headsets and be constricted in all of those ways.
>>47653 >Vecter Reminds me of old Star Wars game, where the last "map" was that valley on the Death Star and had to fly through it avoiding and shooting obstacles (and in the end shoot the proton torpedo into the Achilles-heel/hole of the DS).
>>47654 I can't decide if that's the "tasteless" or "I want more abuse your politician vidya" category. Probably getting too old for this shit. I understand the appeal but it feels kinda childish. If I really wanted I could come up with the list of "what politicians should be hanged" but even in their case this kind of petty humiliation (which the real person doesn't suffer from either way, so it's just mental jerkoff category) is too low. I'm also more of a pragmatist and don't make the thing personal. The hypothetical would be hangers, I don't hate them, I just think we would be better off of them. I don't even understand my compatriots when they see some politician's face on telly or somewhere and start to fume and sputter. As if it would make things better if he is angry at the telly. If it bother them so much, why not just to something about it. Protip: they won't. They just like feeling miserable.
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?

Rosyjski krążownik rakietowy Moskwa, poważnie uszkodzony w wyniku ostrzału sił ukraińskich na Morzu Czarnym, przewrócił się i zaczął tonąć – podała dziś agencja Ukrinform, cytując komunikat służb prasowych ukraińskiego dowództwa operacyjnego Południe. Jak później podano, "Moskwa" została trafiona pociskami manewrującymi RK-360 Neptun. Amerykańscy eksperci oceniają, że strata tego krążownika to ogromny cios w możliwości i morale rosyjskiej armii.
„Na obszarze operacyjnym Morza Czarnego okręt flagowy rosyjskiej Floty Czarnomorskiej, krążownik Moskwa, został trafiony rakietą przeciwokrętową Neptun i poważnie uszkodzony. Wybuchł pożar. Inne okręty chciały udzielić pomocy, ale sztorm i potężna eksplozja amunicji przewróciła okręt i zaczął on tonąć”
Rosyjskie media informowały wcześniej w czwartek o ewakuacji załogi krążownika Moskwa z powodu pożaru i wybuchu amunicji. Strona rosyjska twierdzi, że przyczyny pożaru nie są znane, a okręt „utrzymuje się na powierzchni” - przekazała stacja CNN.
Eksperci oceniali, że strata krążownika Moskwa, który uczestniczył m.in. w ataku na ukraińską Wyspę Węży, byłaby olbrzymim ciosem dla rosyjskiej marynarki wojennej, zarówno pod względem militarnym, jak i wizerunkowym.
Tylko strata okrętu podwodnego zdolnego wystrzeliwać pociski balistyczne albo Kuzniecowa jedynego lotniskowca Rosji byłaby większym ciosem dla rosyjskiego morale i reputacji marynarki wojennej w rosyjskim społeczeństwie
– ocenił emerytowany kapitan amerykańskiej marynarki Carl Schuster, cytowany przez portal CNN
Zestawy rakietowe typu Neptun, opracowane w Kijowie, znajdują się na wyposażeniu ukraińskiej armii od marca 2021 roku. Po raz pierwszy wykorzystano je w warunkach bojowych w wojnie z Rosją. Wprowadzenie Neptunów na wyposażenie armii Ukrainy było odpowiedzią na rosyjską aneksję Krymu w 2014 roku, której skutkiem była utrata przez Kijów większości marynarki wojennej. Ukraińskie siły zbrojne stanęły wówczas przed koniecznością szybkiego wzmocnienia ochrony wybrzeża Morza Czarnego.
Jak informuje serwis internetowy ukraińskiego tygodnika "Nowyj Czas" (nv.ua), kompleks Neptun został opracowany w 2018 roku przez kijowskie biuro projektowe Łucz. Zaletą tego uzbrojenia jest uniwersalność - to pierwsze ukraińskie pociski, które można wystrzelić zarówno z przybrzeżnych zestawów rakietowych, okrętów, jak też samolotów.
Kolejny rosyjski oficer nie żyje. Dowodził 6. Pułkiem Inżyniersko-Saperskim
W trakcie walk na Ukrainie zginął kolejny rosyjski wojskowy wysokiej rangi - to pułkownik Michaił Nagamow, który dowodził 6. Pułkiem Inżyniersko-Saperskim.
Rosjanin miał zostać zabity 13 kwietnia. Nagamow dowodził 6. Pułkiem Inżyniersko-Saperskim stacjonującym w Rostowie. Miał 42 lata. Pochodził z Republiki Mari El, w Nadwołżańskim Okręgu Federalnym Rosji.
Informacja o śmierci pułkownika została także potwierdzona przez stronę rosyjską. Gazeta "Businness Ukraine Magazine" podała, że żadna światowa armia do tej pory od czasu II wojny światowej nie straciła tak dużo dowódców wysokiego szczebla jak Rosja.

Według śledczych 21-letni rosyjski sierżant 28 lutego zabił bezbronnego mieszkańca wsi Czupachiwka, który poboczem drogi prowadził rower. Zastrzelenie 62-letniego mężczyzny zlecił mu jeden z wojskowych, aby ukraińscy obrońcy nie dowiedzieli się od niego o obecności rosyjskich żołnierzy. Sprawca oddał kilka celnych strzałów w głowę mieszkańca, który poniósł śmierć na miejscu.
Asvad Idrisov, dowódca 2. kompanii Specjalnego Pułku Zmotoryzowanego im. Achmada Kadyrowa, został zabity przez siły ukraińskie - poinformowało Centrum Komunikacji Strategicznej Sił Zbrojnych Ukrainy. Zabity Idrisov pełnił także funkcję kapitana policji.
"Operacja Don_Gon_Don trwa. Tym razem kapitan VIP Asbad Idrisov, dowódca drugiej kompanii pułku specjalnego Kadyrow, dołączył do VIP fanów twórczości Kobzona"
- napisano na twitterowym profilu Centrum Komunikacji Strategicznej Sił Zbrojnych Ukrainy.
Wspomniany we wpisie Kobzon był rosyjskim piosenkarzem zaliczanym do grona najbardziej znanych artystów w Związku Sowieckim. Mężczyzna zmarł w 2018 r. w Moskwie.
Oprócz Idrisova, zginął także chorąży Gapur Dakalov i zastępca dowódcy 4. plutonu pułku Kadyrowa, starszy sierżant Ali Betishev - poinformował portal Nexta.

>>47659 >>47660 Yeah, that one I listen when it's on in GTA. Since I watched Straight Outta Compton I think what could be like all those niggas listening this as they go about their business on any day.
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.
>>47636 Maybe. What kinda films do you have in mind? I can recommend Dersu Uzala by Kurosawa for example. Or The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo trilogy, the original Swedish. Personally I wanna watch How I Unleashed The Second World War for a while now. That Polish masterpiece with Gzegorz Berzyczkyewitcz or how it is spelled. It consists of 3 parts, 1 hour long each, therefore kinda long for a regular movie night. And Potop (Deluge), and C.K. Dezertezy. These are Polish too.
>>47651 >Kung fu hustle >has been compared to contemporary and influential wuxia films such as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon >Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon It's real. I thought Sawyer just made it up as a parody for Chinese kung-fu movies. I have to see this.

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.
>>47655 >And she's was always doing things I don't like to upset me. She just never listens to what I have to say
Looks like you are already unhappy, so this is a good way to drop the relationship. At least you wouldn't have much thoughts like "maybe we had a chance". Women are pretty evil and manipulative creatures, and it is better to avoid most manipulative ones. Otherwise you'll spend much time in vain.
I've had some long unsuccessful relationships in past and only thing that I regret is that I did spend too much time and emotions in them. Like being in unsure relationship state for few years, when you don't really understand if she your girlfriend or just friend (very typical).
As >>47670 said, friends come and go, so time will help anyway. In different periods of life I've always had some "best friends", but they slowly moved away when life changed, because we lost everyday contact. Now I'm in contact only with few persons from school and university, and surprisingly these people weren't even my big friends in past. And these people are pretty good friends now. In past I couldn't even imagine that this will happen.
>I didn't really ask for anything major, but I'm getting ignored hard by them
It depends on your personality - if you are sociable person it is hard when you have such friends. Try to be more individualistic and rely only on yourself, it helps.
Technically I'm in reserve (as almost anyone here) but in very last batch, and there is still reluctance to do any mobilization of first ones. Although war is messed much with all plans anyway, especially wedding one (that was planned from winter when no one expected what will happen). I browse kc often, but have not so much to say now.
As I promised I'll write about this book. It's quite lengthy but you'll reach the end if you read at your own pace. Most of the book isn't dense for me, an economic layman, with the exception of the parts about trade, which left me confused. I'll write what I manage to understand. The author wrote it to argue in historiographical debates and make some points, but I read it just to add to my historical knowledge.
I'll write in sections, at most one a day so Bernd doesn't get overwhelmed, and will try to make the sections more thematic rather than just a sythesis of each chapter, as Hitler himself suggests in Mein Kampf for how one should mentally organize knowledge. I want to write about:
-Trade and controls of foreign currency and raw materials -Budgets and revenue -Agrarianism -Businessmen and workers -Consumer goods -The fate of different industries -Rearmament -General progression from 1933 to 1939
If I give up on writing I hope at least to cover the prewar period. I also hope to write on: -Armaments priorities until 1940
Also. He is a good example of ideological bias. It is more than that "trust the plan" Q thing, they're getting their chops busted for. It's a whole world view and real motivation put into actions. A life built on it. Nowadays it's easy to claim "I'm a this or that" (think "I'm libertarian", "I'm anarcho-capitalist" etc.) when their life and how they live it doesn't really reflects anything. They just find things true and they voice their thoughts.
>>43990 >>43990 >. Nowadays it's easy to claim It was always easy to claim such things, I mean for example champange socialism is not a new term. Comformism always existed but it has never been such an overwhelming norm before. You go to twitter you wave your ideological flag, release your anger, relax and live like everyone else. This new way of life prevents any meaningful change as it comforts pretty much everyone. The illusion of change is worse than normal stagnation.

Justice Minister Moro resigned. He is immensely popular and was doing a good job. There have been high-profile arrests and in 2019 the number of murders dropped by 10 thousand compared to the previous year, a decrease of a fifth. This is a result of many factors: in the Northeast cooperation among cartels reduced violence, but the reduction happpened in other states. Legislation wasn't a factor as there was next to no real change in this regard. He retains much prestige despite the scandal with his leaks, eternal hate from the left due to being Lula's nemesis and repeated disempowerment of the anti-corruption struggle by Congress and the Supreme Court. What caused this was Bolsonaro's elimination of Federal Police director Maurício Valeixo, who had been picked by Moro. In his final address he noted that: -There was no legitimate reason for this as he had been effective in his post -This was a violation of the promise Bolsonaro made upon naming him Minister, that he'd have freedom to handle subordinates -Bolsonaro also intends to replace a subordinate of the director, the Rio de Janeiro superintendent, and possibly other superintendents, which goes against his spirit of giving autonomy to subordinates -A replacement now would create confusion and harm the Federal Police's functioning -Bolsonaro personally told him this was a political choice
Why political? He did not say this straight, but what everyone says is that it was to protect Bolsonaro's sons from investigation, and hence why the Rio de Janeiro superintendent is also involved. Their corruption accusations are petty for Brazilian standards but what's bigger are accusations they might be tied to militias. As always Bolsonaro's sons are his priority. This behavior doesn't come out of nowhere as he has few contacts in Brasília, having lived his career in the sidelines, and many reasons to be distrustful. Moro isn't someone he has a reason to distrust but his sons still came first.
A CPAC was held on the Hungary. USA midterm elections are coming up in November, so campaign all year. What's weird is they campaigning with Hungary. Both country an Orbán returns in their news. Liberals foaming just makes him more recognized, popular, and influential.
>>47644 I looked him up and apparently it's an Italian name for people from Albania or something. It's from his dad but his dad separated with his mother before or shortly around his birth or something. He's also from a fairly poor background raised by a single mum in public housing and it said he was part of the hard left of the Labour Party and was head of a young labour group when he was young that kept in touch with the Australian communists and such. I don't like this....
Dokumenty uzyskane przez wywiad wojskowy Ukrainy świadczą o przygotowaniu 1 Armii Pancernej Rosji do inwazji i zajęcia terytorium Białorusi - czytamy na stronie Głównego Zarządu Wywiadu Ministerstwa Obrony Ukrainy.
Po sfałszowaniu wyborów prezydenckich na Białorusi Federacja Rosyjska opracowała plan inwazji i stłumienia protestów społecznych - informuje wywiad.
Okupację Białorusi zaplanowano pod pretekstem uniknięcia zaangażowania Rosji „w europejskim regionie kontynentalnym w regionalną lub na dużą skalę wojnę z państwami członkowskimi NATO na Zachodzie”.
Jednym z dowodów przygotowania Rosji do militarnej agresji na sąsiednie państwo jest „Legenda o planie przegrupowania jednostek i jednostek wojskowych 1 Armii Pancernej na terenie zadania”
- czytamy na stronie wywiadu.
Dokumenty, które mają potwierdzać plany Rosji można zobaczyć TUTAJ:
Kilka dni temu, świat obiegła informacja o tym, że hakerzy z Killnet zaatakowali wiele stron włoskich instytucji państwowych czy witryn należących do poszczególnych ministerstw. Złamanie zabezpieczeń potwierdziła tamtejsza policja, a rosyjska grupa z dumą zapowiedziała kolejne ataki na europejskie kraje solidarne z Ukrainą. Na te "groźby" odpowiedziała grupa Anonymous, która wczoraj wieczorem, wypowiedzieli cyberwojnę rosyjskim hakerom. Na efekty działań "haktywistów" nie trzeba było długo czekać. Szybko i skutecznie - tak można opisać tą sytuację.Po dosłownie kilku godzinach, w internecie zostały opublikowane pseudonimy rosyjskich hakerów wraz z odnośnikami do ich kont w mediach społecznościowych, w tym do profili na Instagramie, TikToku, Twitterze czy serwisach typu Steam i Torrent.
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.
This shit was masterful on behalf of Wakatakakage. Before he'd fell out he pulled himself back with Takayas' arm just enough to grab his mawashi and pull himself back more while rolling Takayas out. Awesome. I'm sorry for Takayas. He led the tournament since the beginning. Wakatakakage was strong and quick. In the interview he said he managed to keep center of gravity down during whole tournament, an aspect he wished to improve previously. Well deserved championship.
Sumo is back, grand tournament of May starts this Sunday! Again gonna stream nattosumo's recaps (if he still makes them, he should) every day at 18:30 on https://cytu.be/r/endcorner
Terunofuji had to sit out most of the last basho due to injury (heel and knee). Three ozekis this isn't changed due to Shodai managed getting his shit together previously. Wakatakakage and Abi as sekiwakes, but neither has the track record needed to become champions. Hoshoryu is komusubi now can he move up with pulling a great score? Takayas climbed back, but Ura fell back now he is on the same level with Wakamotoharu.
Now let's take a look at the other end of the banzuke. Oho is in Makuuchi again, and now the tiny Midorifuji too! I wish both of them luck.
In Juryo it's Ryuden and Enho. The former should beat the whole bunch again, and probably move up to Makuuchi by next tournament. The latter I hope can perform well and get to the top of this division. I dunno about the rest, especially the new ones. Probably Slov could write something.
First day bouts weren't that good to be honest. A bit lackluster compared to the start of the previous one. And not because several of the contestants who should have won failed, simply just not that many bouts had that intensity. Enho and Ryuden won, that is a plus, Enho nicely, Ryuden's was a bit meh, his opponent gave up at the end. Shodai, Takakeisho, and Terunofuji all lost. It seems Teru still has problems with his legs, congrats Daieisho however on his win against the yokozuna, whom he beat the second time straigh. Hoshoryu too, lost. I think Ichinojo did not participate at all. I guess injury. Oho and Midorifuji got beaten too.
Well it was just the first day. Anything can happen till the end.
First bout right at the bat was breddy gud. Chiyonoumi vs. Churanoumi Enho did a great throw! Started very aggressively, and kept his opponent in check, then threw him onto the ground with his mawashi. He needs to win 3 more, essentially all the bouts left to get a positive balance. Kitanowaka was back from sitting 5 out. But lost. Akua had to a barrel roll.
Ryuden fought in Makuuchi, against Oho. Won clear and relatively fast. I feel sorry for Oho, but was almost inevitable. Aoiyama still doing good, had his 8th win, positive balance achieved. Terutsuyosh' was harassed until fell. Takanosho's 10th win. He'll do couple of steps in the ranking. Kiribayama vs Wakamotoharu, very intense. Tachi-ai big crash. Takayas and Takarafuji, both having very bad score. Bu Takayas' routinely beat Takarafuji on previous occasions, now too. Takarafuji 2-10... Shodai got henka'd but get himself together for a moment. Elders decided at a rematch. Sadly Shodai beat Tobizaru this time. Matakeumi has to run after the results now that Abi beat him. Takakeisho vs. Ura. Ura already was in positive balance. What a surprising bout, even them did not know what happened. Hilarious, laffed a lot. Ura won. Congrats. Terunofuji STRONK. I'm expecting at least one more win from Teru. I hope his joints hold together.
>>47565 Endchan location detection is like that sometimes. Just FYI me (board owner) can't do anything about it, if you want you can complain about it on /operate/ but this problem was known for years.
>>47582 >how big Small. Check endchan's board list for daily stat. It does not count Torusers, which is sometimes one. Problem is, this band is together since 2016-17 and we expressed our opinion on every important topic twice from start to end and backwards. Also posted many interesting shit, most of not in the catalog anymore, and run out of things to post. Plus all of us has our lives, some moved away from imagebaords. Plus plus, since we are only a few it is less likely that a post will overlap with another's interests, so might not provoke replies. Plus plus plus, personally I feel less and less the "need to correct" wrong opinions on the internet (I did not have much of that to begin with, and sometimes I rather ridicule, especially if I smell trolling, also I'm busy and tired), and the others aren't keen on argue over bs either. So heated discussions are rare. During busiest times we had ~15 posters. Now daily ones are me and that Australian fella. And we have some more posters who checks in once or twice per week. And other occasional posters. If you post something we'll read it, maybe even reply.
