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.

They do. This is why they are good:
1. they are relatively cheaper;
2. they break down relatively less frequently;
3. the replacement parts are relatively cheaper;
4. the repair cost is relatively cheaper.
I think their fuel consumption is also ok. All in all you can get a relatively more reliable car with relatively lower cost. Relatively.

>Jeeps too
Then buy a Suzuki Samurai.

>I'm looking for a car but I don't know much about them.

Then buy cheap one, especially if you aren't good driver.

Also try to find less "modern" thing, because they aren't good in terms of maintenance. Even if service is free (guarantee etc), it isn't fun to do all these tedious things like driving car to service, waiting, getting it again etc. For example, modern small engines with small volume (1 - 1.2l) and multiple turbines have multiple points of failure. Compared to them, classic atmospheric engines often much more reliable and simple. They had worse fuel economy though, but not that much, if we don't talk about sportcars.

>cars that are small so they are easy to park

Australia has problems with parking space? Really?

From my experience, biggest problem isn't the size of the car (you can park almost everything without problems after month of driving), but size and availability of parking spaces. I live in place where parking is a _big_ problem, and even here it is possible to park medium-sized car. And, if there is no free parking slot, even small car can't be parked anyway.

I only recommend to get a car with rear parktronic. Any parktronic, even that device that just beeps when obstacle is close, without cameras and shit. It really helps.

>also look interesting and nice.

Suzuki Jimny is a good, fun and interesting car. It is also small and relatively cheap.

Do you want new car or old? It always about money anyway.

>those jap cars dont break down they say

Jap propaganda. Old japanese cars were good, nowadays it is varying from model to model. German cars also have reputation of reliable vehicles, but this isn't true too. All cars are shit

Bernd 12/14/2020 (Mon) 11:18:01 [Preview] No.41589 del
I recommend a T-34.
- low maintenance cost, can be fixed by banging it with a hammer
- if it runs out of fuel you can ask boongs laying about to piss in it, that will enough to reach next gas station
- don't need to know rules of the road, everyone will conform to you
- you can make your parking space on a whim
- aesthetic
- emu proof
- in the summer it can be hot, maybe fixable with an AC unit
- in winter can be cold, maybe fixable with installing a stove
- fuel consumption (can be mitigated with the boong trick)
- a little bit heavy

Can be altered. Some military purpose stuff (like ammo storage) just isn't needed and the space can be used to other stuff. I don't think I ever was in a tank (maybe when I was very young) so I can't tell how the interior could be change to make more comfy.

Not a tank, but there are plenty of civilian armored machines. They take old BRDM or BTR, do some adaptation (additional windows, new seats) and sell them. Technically, all these APCs are just common trucks.

There is also plenty of authentic civilian vehicles based on army APCs, mostly for oil workers at north. Most of them based on MT-LB

Just had an interview with a Chinese company. Didn't like it. First, the guy never even said I was interviewing with him. He told me that just wanted to chat and invited me over to his seekrit clubhouse app. Second, I could not understand anything he said, and the people he worked with were literally the back office from him staring and being half naked for some reason. Third, even when I answered a few interview questions from him, that I could understand at least, he kept prodding and picking at me for not know every single thing he asked me earlier on.

He gave some really rude and too personal responses afterwards, so I just decided to end it right there and told him I would like to withdraw my interview or whatever it was. Afterwards, I got booted from his chat a few seconds afterwards. Overall, very unprofessional and did not like a thing about it. Maybe serves as a learning experience, but I don't know.

We need to make a Bernd company somehow. I can imagine it like short term freelance job center, connecting people who needs stuff to be done and those who are willing to do. Ofc, these would be online jobs, I guess minor coding, webdev things, or I dunno some more practical, liek "I don't want to do - or have no time to do - X thing, but I'm willing to give a little money for that". I think micro-work or how does it called.
I dunno how to keep it anonymous, while ensuring the "freelancers" do reliable job, and ofc the legality and not necessarily just from angle of taxation. Let's say these are the main challenges.
And this initiative needs a website where the communication is done, even tho a domain and a vps does not cost too much, still have to be financed.

Mum's Mazda 2 has lasted forever and it's new but I can see where you are coming from, some do seem to have issues.

>Australia has problems with parking space? Really?

Yes and no, most of Australia is suburban, it's really only an issue in the CBD but even then parks are next to non existent so you pretty much have to pay for a park or park outside the CBD and walk. But regardless it's easier to park small cars particularly if they have small front parts.

Yes, that is the kind of var I was looking for, in some ways it is probably better than a Suzuki swift because it looks more utilitarian and kind of like a Jeep.

I don't think they sell them here and if they did they would cost more than my budget of $3000. As an aside I have thought about getting a universal carrier, they are reasonably common(they were actually the most mass produced tracked military vehicle of WW2) and they are small and probably easier to maintain. Australia used and I think produced them as well so they are here.

You should be careful about that, we still don't fully know how it actually works or what long term affects it has. It hass been seen that the virus can work it's way to the brain and that this may be contributing or causing symptoms but also in some cases problems have continued well after the virus has left the system.

They promise to supply your with one, temporarily.

If you don't agree with app at all, you will be fined and hospitalized - at least official site says so.


Google translate:

>Patients with confirmed coronavirus infection undergoing treatment at home, citizens with symptoms of coronavirus infection, and people living with the sick should use the Social Monitoring service. If you have signed the Consent to receive home health care or the Sanitary Doctor's Order, refusing to use the service will be an administrative offense, which will result in a fine and hospitalization in a medical facility. We ask you to show social responsibility: download the application and start using it.

Technically, all these things don't really conform local laws (you can't be easily fined without evidence etc), but who cares. Some people tried to sue Moscow government, but process is slow and looks like it is going to fail.

It is only Moscow though, other parts of Russia have no such shit.


As far as I know, it is mostly typical common cold except one thing - after death of virus it's debris may provoke heavy inflammation in lungs because some proteins looks like something different etc (my medical knowledge ends here). So, even when body beats virus (as any common cold), you can have pretty dangerous pneumonia, and all these long-standing adverse effects are mostly same as for typical pneumonia. And pneumonia isn't a joke, it may deal damage for life. There also some coagulation problems that may end with stroke or similar thing. So, it is like relatively normal cold but with chance to get heavy problems after first stage. That viral pneumonia also isn't fatal too, but may be, especially if there are other health problems, or person just unlucky.

But chances of having these complications aren't that big, and I hope that it isn't my case. Only time will tell.

Got a antibody test yesterday - yes, that was coronavirus. Test says that "first" antibodies (igM) are still here, but "late" antibodies (igM) already started to appear. So, it is the end of disease or the late stage.

Overall, symptoms ended near week ago, and sense of smell is working again. Now I still unsure if I need to do another test (PCR) that detects ability to spread the virus. Or just wait some time and forget about it.

>"first" antibodies (igM)
How they took your sample? Blood or mucus from nose/throat?

Had to make Lyme test last year, they also looked for igG and igM.
Are immunoglobulins "one fits them all" type of reaction?
Let's say "pathogen A" comes, the body starts to produce igG as a reaction. On another occasion "pathogen B" comes, the body starts to produce igG as a reaction. Is the two igGs are different somehow, or are the same?
So let's say they test me for "pathogen A" - which I don't have but I have "pathogen B". My body produced igG so those I have. The test shows I have igG and they declare "pathogen A" infected me - just because they did the test on the basis that they were looking for "pathogen A"?
How does this work I wonder?
An acquaintance was ill last year, very ill, some upper respiratory disease, had severe immunreaction to that, they got scared it's maybe covid, they called ambulance. The ambulance did the test and found no covid present. So they have a way to differentiate, but I'm not sure they did the same test what they do in labs - in fact if they could do such test in 10 mins were there a need to visit labs at all (like I had to with Lyme)?
I also know tests are unreliable, some or better but still every has inaccuracies.

>they havent isolated the "virus" so impossible to test for it ivan...

Maybe, but does it change anything?


>How they took your sample? Blood or mucus from nose/throat?

That was blood test. Another type of test - PCR - is taken from throat, and detects virus in respiratory tract. It shows if you are contagious, but, as far as I know, has very large error rate. I decided to do only blood test, because it is too late for PCR for me (just my opinion). Even that antibody test may be flawed. Or they could just replace my blood sample with other in accident, or something like this - and you can't check it. Maybe doing multiple tests in different labs is a way, but I personally don't really care: I've had the symptoms, they are gone, whatever.

>Are immunoglobulins "one fits them all" type of reaction?

I don't know much about biology, but looks like igM is common, or at least very similar for many diseases, and igG is specific to single virus. So, igG is produced after some time, and igM are first ones, but less specific. Having only igM is not enough to detect anything except "looks like you are ill". Having igG says that you had that virus in past. Or it is error in testing, I guess some tests may mismatch antibodies, depending on disease and type of antibody.

>An acquaintance was ill last year, very ill, some upper respiratory disease, had severe immunreaction to that, they got scared it's maybe covid, they called ambulance. The ambulance did the test and found no covid present.

Quick test (from throat I suppose) detects covid by some third factor, and there are plenty of errors. It also may not detect infection, even if it exists, because it stops to be located in respiratory tract and goes lower (lungs etc). Infection also may be suppressed by antibodies and test may fail because there are too small amount of virus etc.

Doctors need to differentiate by multiple tests, and also by symptomatic. But in most cases, especially before covid, they just see respiratory symptom and say "it's flu or common cold", because testing is relatively long task. Now with coronavirus they often just say "oh, it's covid", even without tests. Considering that treatment for most cases is the same (i.e. do nothing, sit and wait until you are ok or you need to hospitalize), there is a reason why they do this.

Yeah, one is produced as a sudden reaction, spike quick, then quickly dies down, meanwhile the other gets slowly produced, replacing the first one, and goes on for a longer period of time.
>Even that antibody test may be flawed.
Here media says the throat/nasal mucus sample test is more reliable and blood test is less. I've no idea how can anyone have? what is true.
There's also something going on with the result: one outcome trustworthiness is less then the other (I dunno if positive over negative or vice versa). The whole thing is a big clusterfuck.

>don't need a vaccine
Not now. But it will be seasonal with seasonal vaccination. And it mutates to new strains. Some of those will need new vaccine. We're gonna stand in line every two weeks for a new shot.
Btw I like how they made in record time a bunch of vaccine for SARS-CoV-2, while they couldn't for SARS-CoV-1...
And with 90-95% effectiveness, meanwhile simple flueshot has the effectiveness of 10-60%.
I bet these vaccines also make everyone beautiful and rich, ends global warming, and solves starvation in the 3rd world.

>That's good, you didn't die and now you don't need a vaccine.

Considering that there are plenty of talks about "covid passports" in Russia, I still would need to prove that everything is ok. And considering buerocratic system, it wouldn't be too easy without some official document about vaccination.

>Here media says the throat/nasal mucus sample test is more reliable and blood test is less.

Here media says different, although those test have different goals. Throat test detects virus in throat that would spread to others, and (as they say) it detects it earlier, but with a margin of error. It also stops detecting virus after some time, while it is circulating in body, but becomes suppressed by antibodies in throat.

Blood test has less errors, but it detects antibodies that start to produce after near a week or so. And you can spread the virus in meantime, because you don't know if it is covid or not.

>Not now. But it will be seasonal with seasonal vaccination.

Yes, it would be same as with flu. Although I've never got any flu vaccine, maybe only as child, everything is ok and nobody cared.

This is such a bs. Why would something like this necessary? Are they insane? They expect you to be unemployed until it goes down? Do they think: "you better be not searching for other jobs if you wanna work for us"?
Anyway good luck! Every job is shit and every employer is an asshole, but I wish you can find one that will be bearable enough.

I was thinking a time to apply for whatever jobs and go to interviews to have a casual chat there, not for getting a job. Maybe for some people this would be even a good tactic to feel less stressed about it, and could even score a place.

Liek some companies like Amazon and Facebook take an entire day or a week of interviews for them to make a final decision. While smaller companies tend to have 1 or 2 interviews and you start working with them in a few days after the paperwork. Depends on the company. Well, I've had a few good jobs during the years, so they aren't all bad.

You would be surprised, but I've actually heard of people getting actual well paying jobs that way. The only thing is that you have to be REALLY GOOD at what you're doing for them to consider you for their company.

I dreamt I was walking uphill on a dirt road trees and bushes around. It was night but things around looked as if they were lighted - I don't remember any light source -, shapes were sharp, clear, the scenery looked wet like after rain, but the dirt road was dry. When I arrived to the top an asphalt road run perpendicularly, as thing as the dirt road, but it looked wet. To the left hand where I headed it also went uphill with a slight curve. Houses were on the two sides, well, their fences and hedges, with black wrought-iron gates. Here lampposts lined along the road. There weren't a soul nearby. It was pretty nice overall.
Now I wasn't alone, I knew I had to pales, a man and a woman, we went ahead and I knew this happened already, maybe not even once. I knew there will be a pistol on the road ahead, but there wasn't any. Then we moved into a building, a large one. Large in the sense it spread on a large area. It was like many houses and buildings next to each other, opening into each other with no streets between them. Anything with residential and commercial purpose. Maybe even a hospital too. They were of various styles, some with retro feeling. And they were overcrowded. So many people everywhere.
We were separated from each other but we sensed where are the others, I think we could communicate too. We knew there were armed people about and we needed to find weapons. We were unnoticed in the crowd. I think we could get a pistol and a submachine gun.
That's what I remember.

Again dreamt a couple of weird vivid dreams.
I was outside, in the woods, but there was a line of cabinets, with glass on this side. A statue stood in the left corner, darkened by shadow. Tiny humanoids, size of ants went by it into a temple. They did not walk but floated, or how a conveyor belt would move them slowly. Someone else was with me I don't know who, some work needed to be done there. Then the statue moved to the right a bit and I saw that only the head is shaped, otherwise it looked like some longish rock. The head resembled to Chuthulhu's head. I reached in and flicked its "beard" it was like thick rubber. The eyes lighted up white, not sure if they were even before or as a reaction to my action. Then I/we went further and after the cabinet a row of what could be called as ossuaries or maybe just weird coffins on each other. They were made of clay and dirt, they reminded me of a cocoon of a certain wasp(?) which creates a hard shell for the larvae. On the short side facing us thick iron plate closed these boxes. Writings were on the surface I assume names and such. We had to break these things, I think the backside of these plates which were covered in clay. "Conservation of resources" or something like this was our reason. I woke up at this point.
Later this night, was morning then, I dreamt I put a bed, a large one, up to a tree, and covered it with a silk sheet.

Going mediocre at best. House was filled with old things for 20+ years, but recently, due to some changes (distant relatives got own dacha and decided to take back their old furniture etc), there is some kind of large cleanup. I also decided to dump everything that I don't need, so every visit ends with filling 10 bags of trash. Thanks Czechs for large trunks on their cars. So, electricity still postponed again. I've decided to use LED strips for ceiling and already got free LED power adapter (150W) from friend, now it is only about LED strip and free time. I've tried LED strip at home in kitchen, and it is pretty good.

But there are other problems: water in well became slightly muddy, so it needs cleaning. Electrical saw broke last weekend, just stopped working - tomorrow I'll try to open it and fix. Grass trimmer also had problems with cord.

One wall at second floor also became visibly curved, so I guess I'll need to call some engineer or such to analyze what can be done and do anything need to be done at all.

Also lost last working bicycle, so decided to ressurect my old one that I've used as kid in city. Replaced one tube but then found that pedals sometimes hit frame because they are skewed.

After long and unpleasant disassembling I've found that bearing is broken and some other things aren't ok too. Soviet-designed bikes were, as always, special, and used non-standard designs everywhere, so I hope I'll find replacement parts soon.

It was the '90s when I repaired a bike, similarly as a kid.
So a simple bearing replacement might not be that simple because the bearing might not be the same sized it is used in contemporary bikes?
Does that bike use coaster brake (we call it "kontra" since it works when pedaling in contrary direction)?

>So a simple bearing replacement might not be that simple because the bearing might not be the same sized it is used in contemporary bikes?

Everything is different. There are plenty of projects in net about modification of this bike, and most of them include lathe-made details and metal work, because modern (Chinese mostly) parts are different. That thing that I've disassembled called "bottom bracket" (I don't understand anything in bikes though, so may be wrong), and looks like it has design called "Thompson" that is officially rare (stated in Wiki), etc. Although I think I've had some similar old bearings somewhere, so maybe it would be easier.

>Does that bike use coaster brake (we call it "kontra" since it works when pedaling in contrary direction)?

Yes. It is old bike designed in USSR ("Salut", folding one), it has no gear shifting, steel frame (so it is 15kg full) and overall pretty simple. Picrelated of the mostly complete bike from internet.

If you are committed to repairing maybe you can buy a couple of second hand bikes for a handful of kopeks and mine them for parts, instead of manufacturing them. Rest onto the recycling center.

Our folding bikes made by Csepel (Weiss Manfred Works, I think I mentioned in the tank thread) were called "Camping".

Fixed in finally. I'm pretty inept person, so first I combined old bracket with some new parts, but diameter of new central rod was slightly different so it can't be assembled with old pedals. Then I used main rod from old one and assembled it successfully, only to see that I did it at wrong side (other side must be longer). At third time I finally did it though.

There are some problems with pedals and handlebar mounting (both in shitty condition), but overall it is working and bike may be used normally.

Also bought cheap chainsaw and it is ok (at least for now).

I think you just left the planning part out. I usually do the same. Third times the charm as they say. Or three is the Hungarian truth, as we say.

You need to modify the bike so you can sit in the pack rack over the back wheel and steer with long handles, would be like a chopper.
Bikes are good stuff. Even if one cannot ride them can be useful to move heavier loads when pushed. Maybe a third wheel on the side so it won't need holding.
