ITT: we explore small boards to find cool stuff and for curiosity's sake and then report on our findings.
My search area consists of non-porn 8chan boards with a poster count in the 10-100 range, but other boards are also welcome.
How do conversations proceed? Which memes are appreciated? Is any OC produced? What kinds of threads are made? What are the board's collective opinions on its subject matter? What is its relationship to other boards? What is the userbase's ideology and outlook? How is the moderation? These are some of the questions that can be answered.
I'll start with /doomer/. At 80 posters it's second on the list, just behind /ausneets/ with 84. The subject matter and the name are one and the same.
Most threads belong in one of three categories:
-Aesthetics threads on topics such as somber art, music and architecture. Art thread had this peculiar picture. The first page houses a good thread on brutalism, though it got derailed into a conversation about women. Even the board's CSS has this feeling. -Sincere expressions of how posters are nihilistic, feel they've fucked up in life and dislike the people around them. Often start with greentext personal experiences. Drugs and family relations are common themes. -Venting against society at large.
There's a lot of hate against people, but not much between individual posters. Ideologies span the whole ecosystem of online radicalism, with anarchists, fascists, primitivists and the like.
I dig the title, /kc/-tier. Not sure how popular this thread will be but we are all interested in imageboards - otherwise we wouldn't be here - so I say we have breddy gud chances, and I think any one of us can do this. Lurking a board for a while and put here our findings doesn't need other resources (except time, and not too much that one).
"I find that I'm actually busier now than I really had hoped to me," Favre said.
The 6-foot-2, 316-pound Davison was credited with 8陆 sacks last season and was named to the All-Mountain West Conference first team. But Davison, a former competitive wrestler, said his aggressiveness getting into the backfield won't undermine his ability to defend the run.

Notes: Raiders coach Jack Del Rio declined to say why he put Aqib Talib and not Chris Harris Jr. on Colts WR T.Y. Hilton in the playoffs last year when he was the Broncos defensive coordinator, a move that was heavily scrutinized. "That's in the past. That's last year," Del Rio said in a conference call with Denver media. "Let them match up however they want to match up going forward. What we did is in the books. I'm not going back and revisiting that." ... Kubiak said DE Derek Wolfe, who returned from a four-game suspension this week, should play more than half the snaps Sunday. ... SS T.J. Ward has gone from being suspended Week 1 to winning the AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors. "Best week ever," he said.
Tight end Crockett Gillmore also was injured against the Steelers, but the news Gillmore was better. He missed game before the matchup with the Steelers with a calf injury, but Harbaugh said Gillmore has "a chance" to play against the Cleveland Browns.
Instead of a TD that could have made it 34-24, Tampa Bay wound up settling for Connor Barth's third field goal of the game and a six-point lead.
Заебись. После двухлетнего нодвачефона вернулся и оказалось, что провайдер блокирует Сосаку, а все прокси и ВПНы там перебанены. Даже платные, пишет "Доступ запрещён". Смена DNS не помогла. Зеркала не открываются. ХЗ что теперь делать Я хочу постить, ёпта. Смена провайдера? Но как узнать, что другой пров так же не будет блокировать? У меня нет друзей, к кому можно было сходить и проверить. Капец, такой-то облом. Ещё целых полтора года ждать, сука. Подскажите, как можно постить на Сосаке (иногда вижу укр. флажки в тематике) или названия провайдеров (хотя я из мухосранска, тут их пара штук на весь посёлок, мобильные типа Vodafone и Киевстар тоже банят Сосач).
I saw some Mexican asking for gulyás recipe on Kohl and because I don't really want to start posting there beside the World Cup I decided to reupload the gulyás cooking as the other thread is "File not found" as well. So here's with original text.
Cooking with Bernd: gulyás
I was planning to post a good gulyás cooking since day one but somehow the occasion eluded me until now. I know a Hungarobernd did this on KC main but it was regular "cooking in the kitchen" type of thread and not "over open fire in bogrács" (traditional Hungarian pot). I couldn't do this live for technical reasons but it will be fine this way too.
Pic #1 Ingredients: meat (little bit over half a kilo, it's pork, not beef), taters (by volume I used about the double of the meat dunno their weight), onions, tomato, paprikas, black pepper in the mill, dried ground paprika in the jar with the red lid, salt in the middle, and the white wax paper on the right covers the salo (fatback). You can also see my Mora for cutting needs and a bearly visible peace from a wooden spoon behind the meat and the potato, the masterpiece of my carving art, used for stir the food in the bogrács. The taters are leftovers from winter, wizened but fine for our purpose. Some of the onions and the paprikas are also leftovers I utilized.
Pic #2 The initial setup. Two quarter logs at the sides and a nest in the middle for the fire itself also aligned toward the usual main direction of the wind. The rocks are there for a little draft control. Tripod to hang the bogrács.
Pic #3 Lighted a handful of dry grass, placed in the middle of the nest, then a large handful of dry twigs above, and sticks across the log above all. As these sticks burn in the middle they broke after a while and fall into the nest. The heat from the nest lights up the inside faces of the logs. The heat is very concentrated toward the nest. The cooking is going above the nest, and it really doesn't need much flames. The smoldering logs pumping up lotsa heat, only some sticks are needed to be placed inside the nest time to times. Also when a log burns through, a new can be placed there. I had several prepared.
>>23379 Ebin. You changed up z and s tho. "Pászka" is just pesah/Passower in Hungarian. Another name we use for mezah. Never heard from a Jew calling that way however. Well not that I had many conversations with any of them, so only how I heard it from media.
>>23360 >I blame communism. I doubt it as we have the same problem here. Most people just buy shit from the supermarket with the excuse that they have no time to make it themselves, so I guess it was caused by modern people's obsession with convenience. I wish they could at least buy it from a good bakery, though.
Speaking of flatbreads I made some rotis earlier, was bretty good. Last time they didn't turn out well as I just used chickpea flour on its own and they crumbled apart due to the lack of gluten, so I added some regular flour too this time to compensate.

Despite ringing denunciations from small EU tech businesses, giant EU entertainment companies, artists' groups, technical experts, and human rights experts, and the largest body of concerned citizens in EU history, the EU has concluded its "trilogues" on the new Copyright Directive, striking a deal that—amazingly—is worse than any in the Directive's sordid history.
The Copyright Directive was always a grab bag of updates to EU copyright rules—which are long overdue for an overhaul, given that it's been 18 years since the last set of rules were ratified. Some of its clauses gave artists and scientists much-needed protections: artists were to be protected from the worst ripoffs by entertainment companies, and scientists could use copyrighted works as raw material for various kinds of data analysis and scholarship.
Both of these clauses have now been gutted to the point of uselessness, leaving the giant entertainment companies with unchecked power to exploit creators and arbitrarily hold back scientific research.
Having dispensed with some of the most positive versions of the Directive, the trilogues have also managed to make the (unbelievably dreadful) bad components of the Directive even worse.
Under the final text, any online community, platform or service that has existed for three or more years, or is making €10,000,001/year or more, is responsible for ensuring that no user ever posts anything that infringes copyright, even momentarily. This is impossible, and the closest any service can come to it is spending hundreds of millions of euros to develop automated copyright filters. Those filters will subject all communications of every European to interception and arbitrary censorship if a black-box algorithm decides their text, pictures, sounds or videos are a match for a known copyrighted work. They are a gift to fraudsters and criminals, to say nothing of censors, both government and private.
These filters are unaffordable by all but the largest tech companies, all based in the USA, and the only way Europe's homegrown tech sector can avoid the obligation to deploy them is to stay under ten million euros per year in revenue, and also shut down after three years.
Article 11, which allows news sites to decide who can link to their stories and charge for permission to do so, has also been worsened. The final text clarifies that any link that contains more than "single words or very short extracts" from a news story must be licensed, with no exceptions for noncommercial users, nonprofit projects, or even personal websites with ads or other income sources, no matter how small.
TIME TO THROW THE PIGS OUT!?
Now that the Directive has emerged from the Trilogue, it will head to the European Parliament for a vote for the whole body, either during the March 25-28 session or the April 15-18 session—with elections scheduled in May.
These elections are critical: the Members of the European Parliament are going to be fighting an election right after voting on this Directive, which is already the most unpopular legislative effort in European history, and that's before the public gets wind of these latest changes.
Let's get real: no EU political party will be able to campaign for votes on the strength of passing the Copyright Directive—but plenty of parties will be able to drum up support to throw out the parties that defied the will of voters and risked the destruction of the Internet as we know it to pour a few million Euros into the coffers of media companies and newspaper proprietors—after those companies told them not to.

What this would mean is a lot of Europeans would have to adopt P2P platforms to share stuff (think Soulseek/Retroshare/Tribler/Onionshare/eMule etc), perhaps including decentralized web browsing platforms (think Tor/Beaker/Blockstack/Zeronet etc) to host "banned" content so others can view it.
The only good thing I see coming from this is it will piss people the fuck off, and force people to adopt alternatives that will be much harder for governments to control or regulate (maybe with hope, development of NEW decentralized technologies/protocols similar to bit torrent or IPFS).
While neither ‘Medicare for All’ nor a wealth tax will turn America into Venezuela overnight, all it would take is a series of catastrophic policies.
The first time I couldn’t buy food at the grocery store, I was 15 years old. It was 2014 in Caracas, Venezuela, and I had spent more than an hour in line waiting. When I got to the register, I noticed I had forgotten my ID that day. Without the ID, the government rationing system would not let the supermarket sell my family the full quota of food we needed. It was four days until the government allowed me to buy more.
This was fairly normal for me. All my life, I lived under socialism in Venezuela until I left and came to the United States as a student in 2016. Because the regime in charge imposed price controls and nationalized the most important private industries, production plummeted. No wonder I had to wait hours in lines to buy simple products such as toothpaste or flour.
And the shortages went far beyond the supermarket.
My family and I suffered from blackouts and lack of water. The regime nationalized electricity in 2007 in an effort to make electricity “free.” Unsurprisingly, this resulted in underinvestment in the electrical grid. By 2016, my home lost power roughly once a week.
Our water situation was even worse. Initially, my family didn’t have running water for only about one day per month, but as the years passed we sometimes went several weeks straight without it.
For all these problems, the regime has blamed an iguana, right-wing sabotage and even the weather.
The excuses for these shortages were hollow: In reality, Venezuela has the largest proven oil reserves in the world to use for electricity, and three times more fresh water resources per person than the United States. The real reason my family went without water and electricity was the socialist economy instituted by dictators Hugo Chavez and Nicolas Maduro.
The welfare programs, many minimum-wage hikes and nationalizations implemented by their regimes resulted in a colossal government deficit that the central bank covered by simply printing more money — leading to rampant inflation. Now, prices double every few weeks, and the standard of living continues to plummet.
>boo hoo I couldn't buy food because my dumbass forgot my card I didn't even have money at age 15, nor a ride to get to school or a grocery store. >spent more than an hour in line waiting So Venezuela has Wal Marts and multiculturalism, resulting in spiteful blacks starting shit in line then? I wonder if they're also shot in parking lots for their rims. >the regime in charge imposed price controls and nationalized the most important private industries, production plummeted Production like "Made in China" for the majority of our products? >Initially, my family didn’t have running water for only about one day per month, but as the years passed we sometimes went several weeks straight without it. "White people in America were never this poor." >The real reason >"dictators" Hugo Chavez and Nicolas Maduro. Nope. The real reason shit hit the fan is only Maduro. He undermines Hugo's government with his greed. >he welfare programs, many minimum-wage hikes and nationalizations implemented by their regimes resulted >in a colossal government deficit that the central bank covered by simply printing more money — leading to rampant inflation Aren't we glad we have the Fed and central banks in America where most "money" doesn't even exist except as digital credit, sometimes 2% real cash of all deposits held in banks? And the only reason hyperinflation doesn't hit is they keep raising that debt ceiling. >Venezuela has become a country where a woeful number of children suffer from malnutrition, Hmm. Sounds like ramen noodles for five fucking years, resulting in malnutrition which caused hypoglycemia. >and where working two full-time jobs will pay for only 6 pounds of chicken a month
>>19907 I actually don't mind this, I know some of the 'moderate' leftists are pissed over this though, they say this will divide the party up once again. (See pics). But grassroots is a good thing because its the only solution to shake up a rotten establishment taking over a political party. Similar to how the Tea Party shook up the Republican party.
I'm more or less conservative when it comes to many issues (for example the 2nd Amendment and property rights), but on other issues I agree with liberals (such as being against unnecessary foreign intervention and reforming some of the draconian abuses of our law enforcement today / the US is pretty much a fascistic/communistic police state today).
>>19912 The establishment corporate media has been running hit pieces on him, and you can expect that everyday for 2 years. They're furious he received 6 million in campaign donations in his first 24 hours. But what do the other democratic candidates have to offer? Nothing, all they can flaunt are their genitals or their darkly pigmented skin color. And I think Americans are wisening up to that game and will dismiss the identity politics, just like they did when Shillary couldn't say what she stood for.
But Sanders has been consistently anti-establishment, and stood for a progressive economic platform for over 20 years, long before it was popular for other Denocrats to copy him and say the same thing. He was one of the first, and that's how you know he is genuine.
The establishment will try to snuff him, because they really don't want him to raise taxes on corporations. Here are 4 hit pieces the corporate owned Washington Post ran to smear him in just the last 24 hours.
A rancid potato is going to be enough to outrun Trump after the pizzagate people get ahold of the Epstein/Acosta/Trump child sex trafficking shit. The difference between it and pizzagate is that it's real, with court documents and billionaires fucking 14 year old party favors in mansions and political wheels spinning like mad to try to keep it all quiet to prove it.
My main issue with anime is that characters are poorly written. Writers lean on melancholy to create a semblance of ‘depth’, character behavior is strange, and inconsistent, and reactions to events are almost always annoying.
Example, Every single man turns into a blushing buffoon when a woman talks to them. Even if the character was written as ‘bad ass’, they can never hold a conversation with a girl. Someone who’s allegedly some type of legend will have a girl say ‘he’s kinda cute’ then have a nose bleed and collapse after being melancholic and serious the entire series. Is female interest that funny in Japan? You’re 6 foot tall pure muscle have never been flirted with? lol smh.
It reminds of when you accuse a 7 year old boy of having a girlfriend and he screams and runs away. Only this behavior is transposed on a guy that can blow up planets.
>Virginal writers (Female Characters)
The writing of female characters is consistently awful, and they’re all annoying. No exceptions. They’re always written as the same thing; inappropriately bubbly, explosive, demanding. Or, of course, sad lol. The annoying attempts to get shots of their boobs and crotch, which all are ridiculously inflamed, tells me that nobody in the anime industry has ever talked to a women. If this is a glimpse into the male psyche in Japan, I would really hate to be a woman there.
This is further emphasized by the nosebleeds and collapsing every time a girl talks to male characters. Most anime girls are written the way American animators would write and obnoxious kid sister or busty elf. Even if it has nothing to do with what the character is allegedly ‘supposed to be’. President of the galactic empire has temper tantrum and knocks over table then start gushing about a guy in the span of 2 sentences -no big deal. Sultry and depressed half naked mech suit engineer introduces herself with a dance-jig, -go ahead.
I don’t even want to start with their ridiculous attire lol. Just casually battling in the Siberian tundra in a BDSM bikini and flight jacket LOL.

Если ты, Роман Чесноков не связан с пропутинской деятельностью на анонимных политических форумах, то тебе нечего опасаться, и всё, что написано ниже, ты можешь смело проигнорировать.
Если связан, то имей в виду следующее. Информация о тебе стала доступна ряду организаций. Если ты подверг себя деанонимизации для того, чтобы получить кейс на получение политического убежища по преследованию, то эта информация тебе очень важна. Пригожинские не прощают предателей, Рома. И ФСБ тоже, и ГРУ тоже. У них есть пыточные подвалы и обширный опыт. Про тебя даже могут снять фильм, как про Пеньковского.
Поэтому, Рома, тебе нужно срочно предпринять действия. Попытаться уничтожить всё, что может тебя скомпрометировать (наркотики, сохранённая детская порнография и тому подобное). Собрать документы, надеть чистую немаркую одежду, взять с собой несколько смен нижнего белья и носков. Обналичить и взять с собой необходимые денежные средства. Отключить водоснабжение и газоснабжение, автоматы в электрощитке. Отключить сотовый телефон. И попытаться как можно скорее покинуть страну.
Да, там, куда ты попадёшь, о тебе уже будет известно. Тебе будут заданы неприятные вопросы. Придётся рассказывать о деталях твоей работы на пропутинские структуры. Скорее всего, на твою свободу будут наложены определённые ограничения. Но там ты будешь в относительной безопасности.
Я специально не выкладываю эту информацию на 2ch.hk и других сайтах, которые контролируются путинистами. Во-первых, там она долго не продержится, во-вторых, сразу же попадёт к твоим преследователям. У меня нет заведомо неподконтрольных путинистам каналов связи с тобой, кроме этого, поэтому я оставлю её здесь.

This, for myself, shows the great migration experiment has ended. I view my participation on Endchan largely though the lens of the Infinity Next failure, and the attempts find a better solution. In time, Endchan suffered its own catastrophes along with more in 8chan-land.
While Endchan remains active, it appears we've reached an over saturation of
traditional legacy boards across the whole of the internet. Still, had a few good threads here for the time I spent.
Maybe Adolph'll pick her up and plop her down somewhere in alt-naziland? Could be fun.
>>13183 >>13208 Too bad that the users of this board were never that good with technology. They were years above typical people, but far from a unified knowledge base seen in only a few individuals across the planet...
Intel/AMD CPUs were hit with Meltdown and Spectre, and Intel already had the Management Engine inside of it. Some things with TOR and other projects happened, a coordinated attack on multiple imageboards (Be lucky that I am telling you this, it was largely undetected) that resulted in lainchan, mewch, and other getting hit hard.
>>13183 While I'm not familiar with the board, after a quick skim I see you did a good job. I also found threads with potential, wish Endchan would have a few more posters. I hope someone with good intentions takes over your place. Have a nice one, dude.
because Equestria was too big for /endpone/to handle that size so it went to Seaquestria instead not mention that we are the dead squad but even those can dance edition (at least, the names are similar, that means we´ll get similar results, right?) RIGHT?!

>>3507 I didn´t know that /sp/ still cared about endchan, considering that they have left it on its own luck after last spring, much less about a pony board.
And yeah, /pone/ has stayed in the top 10 most of the time. It hasn´t reached the first place yet on this site though, so we get the silver medal instead.
>>3508 >Funny enough this is probably the most organized board I have seen under 10000 post. the tracker wouldn´t tell you about that. Not everything big delivers the best but thanks for the compliment.
>There are boards far larger than this that have less OC. Ponies are magic and still have some steam over the chans (where they actually belong and were born in the first place whethere you like it or not). They hold up over the years because they have to deliver something over here, aren´t they?
>I still think you're fags but I have to tip my hat to the autism. thanks, the fanbase(not only here) is pretty well organized in general, darling.
if you actually checked the content deeper posted in the OP, the fag tag would change but eh, I am okay with that
>>3503 >honestly, a shitposter/troll wants attention but I think he would have never expected this and most likely if he came back he would think twice before opening a thread like that. I almost want to say it would be the equivalent of the awkwardness of the primitive natives worshiping trash you through out as a deity. Not quite the metaphor I'm looking for but I think you can get the point.
> I simply copied his line and voila, there you have a general with its acronym. Thanks for contributing with your shitpost.... Honestly not much different than how the fandom can take one superficial trait of a character (Derpy's eyes) and can turn it into something with meaning. Not quite the same thing, but close enough to count for what I'm saying. One may not be able to call it genius but one can call it fun to do.
>>3504 >The posts show signs of awkwardness and that´s because no one at that time thought that this was going to happen. Oh boy I don't think I've looked back there in months. They do I bet. My original thought was that I'd just reply as long as somebody else did, but as stuff started to arise I started to take things somewhat seriously by the months end.
>nothing is discarded. That maybe /endpone/'s motto in a way. Dolores from a word filter, our general from a mindless shitpost, etc. It's all things that we took to the next level from the simple jokes that existed. Since the end was so sparse we took what we had.
>and that´s why I admit that handling this site as a great pillar to carry on the fanbase would be not only delusional but also it would lead to drastic changes. The closest thing I could see the end being established as would be that shadowy place where a few fags simi-circlejerk and occasionally post OC from I fully intend to post a fic or two on /mlp/ proper... maybe elsewhere maybe as an underground archive if /go/ works out. All of which could at most bring perhaps a few more regulars but nothing pillar level. For us to be a pillar would require significant changes and some bending to the whim of the mass opinion (not to mention I don't see a path forward to that anyway unless one of us became a ridiculously good content creator and several other boards collapsing.) It could break down a lot of the experimentation and one of us would have to step up to be a leader where choices have significant consequences and scrutiny.
>>3505 >checking those sweet digits (already 3500 posts, phew lad, what a ride) Halfway to 4000 already... better get my shocked cadence ready.
>I can access with my account....weird. It's not endchan but my email provider. Small company, had an attack that supposedly nuked everything on there servers.
>Don´t worry if you don´t get an answer soon, Nextchan is nothing more than a backup place and the state of that board isn´t going to change that much unless there is some activity around. Yeah. If the boards here are going to get nuked I'd think they (or just he now?) would at least have the courtesy to tell us. Though I have seen several boards and sites, even active ones go offline sometimes without any warning.. so I'm always a little bit paranoid.
>I already know that you can handle the usual narrative structure with ease so eh, it´s already been proven before. Go for it or recheck it if you don´t feel that confident. This introduces a concept but was more of a test construction. Early alpha. Next one can be thought of as early beta and will have more to offer even if it doesn't resemble what I plan ta do.
>The replies are mostly content to reply and a tool to keep this active or you can go on your own way without feeling the need to pay attention to them. Hell, you can even bring up a past topic from previous threads to the spotlight again if you feel like doing so. See BO, don't sweat it. We both chill.
>>3522 >you mean, the Revolution fic or one that you have prepared? Technically neither of them (Revolution fic I may post sometime though). First prototype only as a shitpost. The second prototype may qualify in its own right in a somewhat rewritten form. I have a far different endgame at the moment.
>>3506 >The implication about DWK happened without glory nor pity, no replies came about that one. Which is weird as you'd think the whole, on the verge of suicide saved by ponies would go there considering other things you see with that tone all the time.
>Now there are almost 2700 images about them but back then, in 2017....imagine how to run a thread without being a sad bumpfest nor a lonely circlejerk for reaching the bump limit. We live in better times now well in reguards to seaponies >>3509 >As for the overdesigned aspect, the design department was planning about making Queen Novo blue and the hippogriffs were much more alien to the spirit of this show. Sure, they would have been more outstanding....but more outlandish and too complicated for the world established (like the previous pic) Oof. Yeah. Though if they brought in a high fantasy style creature or two that were overdesigned I wouldn't care but as for a fellow pony that would've not worked for me.
>So, about the Minions. They have been exploited to death, they have had astronomical waves of marketing to the point in which it gets obnoxious for those who are not looking out for them (FiM seems like an educated angel when it comes to commercial strategies) It sure can be obnoxious though I'm not prone to complaining it can be annoying when they show up in your back yard.

On the most basic level the need for sex (not just men but women need it too) is the same physiological need like eating, sleeping, drinking, breathing and excretion. With the exception that we would literally die if we wouldn't satisfy those so while the latter five is about self-preservation the sex is for the preservation of the species, but beside this it's just the same in that regard that we feel the urge to satisfy the need when it arises, it isn't really a constant need. Or at least a healthy person's thoughts are not constantly revolving around sex. With stimulation the need can be aroused ofc. A good looking woman should grab the attention of a healthy man, but I can say similar to a delicious food, if you step into a kitchen where a slice of meat is fried it easily can start the saliva flow. Nothing bad about it. How we act on these urges, how to satisfy our needs, what our behaviour is like is a different matter. Since humans aren't live their lives in absolute isolation, what we do and how we do it will have an influence on others. And here comes the morality which basically makes it easier to live together or beside each other, morality is kind of a social lubricant. Ofc certain cultures have different morals but there were always some taboos. For example - to see an extreme one - I don't think there was ever a society where killing could have been done just liek that as if was like taking a breath, such society would have fall apart very fast. Without morality they are. Fun fact: in our modern society there aren't any morals, there's no "official" source that would regulate it, and remind us what's good and bad. Even our laws don't say killing is baed mkay, just if you kill someone you have to give some years from your life, basically bartering them. Some crimes can be payed in money, they have a price. I can punch someone for 100 €. Is it bad? No, just a bit expensive. Frankly I really would buy a season ticket so I could punch others. People now are just flying on autopilot because our societies got used to it to have morals. Meanwhile we are bombarded with information that contradicts these earlier judgments. Even if our acts isn't played in public, like - generally - sex, still will have influence on the public. Since our behaviour is part of us, we bring it within ourselves into the public. The act can be left behind closed doors, but our nature cannot. In our nature some things are instinctual, some learned unconsciously and some formed consciously (one can cultivate a habit), so our behaviour can be inherent even if it isn't genetically "coded". And ofc as you pointed out it can be based on decisions (but our decisions many times pre-decided by our nature, by our feelings, and not based on clear judgment of the facts). So we bring our nature with us among other people and our motivations will be the same there what was behind closed doors. Only maybe our consciousness regulates our actions more. Or not. Would you trust a man who can be bought with a cake? To take another example, eating. One would consider obesity kinda harmless to society. It's bad for that person's health sure, but does it harm me? Well... he overconsumes, and a burden on the resources. But there's more, because his urge to eat is a weakness. If he sees the source of satisfaction in danger, or one offers a way so he can satisfy his needs more easily or secure it, he could chose to act in a way that endangers others or the community itself. We could say it doesn't matter how he gobbles in the privacy in his dining room but he is the same person when he comes out there. Temperance is a virtue. But when is it praised nowadays? Maybe in relation of an "exotic" eastern philosophy. But not so long ago the church itself propagated to the whole society. Now I'm not sure where I'm going with this, started to ramble, maybe you find some answers in all this.
>>22578 >he could choose to act in a way that endangers others or the community itself. We could say it doesn't matter how he gobbles in the privacy in his dining room but he is the same person when he comes out there. I'm not going to become a sex addict fixated on 13 year old girls once I get my first taste of underage pussy, someone who would then go on a violent crime spree if others were to take that away from me. What you're speaking of applies way better to hard drugs. Heroin users will for sure steal from others to fuel their habits once their own money runs out.
ChaosEsque Anthology is a first person shooter. It is a standalone modification of Xonotic which includes extended weapons, maps, vehicles, buildable buildings, mounted weapons, spell casting, monsters, player characters, textures, and game modes.
It has over 100 maps. Some are futuristic, some are ancient, and some are medieval. A few evoke platform games such as sonic, others follow a style more akin to diablo. Some are static maps, others are randomly connected.
There is something to fit your mood. There are mutators that can add mounted weapons in any map, buildings, monsters, foliage, hazards, and even balloons and bumpers. You can fight with futuristic weapons, medieval weapons, and /or hand to hand combat (over 100 weapons). There are also many vehicles (and a mutator to spawn them in maps that do not have them, as is tradition (as you can see)).
You can also set each team to start with different specific weapons if you want to test a theory that you could defeat a well equipped military force with your bolt action rifle or crossbow. Same with vehicles and mounted weapons spawning (you can set which spawn near which team in CTF etc). You can drink wine, potions, learn magic, read scrolls, so on and so forth.
"Renegade Editor’s Note: I know this piece is not sympathetic to our cause, but I understand how frustrating it can seem for people in the Middle East when they see all of these “White supremacist” talking heads all over the media praising israel. They want to make it seem like all nationalists who oppose White genocide have to support the state of israel. We need to completely denounce ALL of them, but unfortunately we have so many shills that promote people like Tommy Robinson, Richard Spencer, and other “White Zionists” and crypto bolsheviks. For example, former Renegade writer Mike Walsh only has praise for Tommy. Same thing with Kevin MacDonald."
"Far-right, anti-Muslim, self-declared Zionist Tommy Robinson has boasted of his love for Israel in leaked video footage, in which the founder of the English Defence League (EDL) can be seen bragging about “scoring” drugs anywhere in the world. The video – which is thought to have been filmed in Bologna, Italy last month – shows the 35-year-old right-wing activist walking down the street on his own. In the selfie video Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, brags: “No matter where I’ve gone in the world, I score. I will show you tonight.” He then calls for a taxi to visit a pub, presumably to demonstrate that he can access drugs wherever he goes."
"Boasting of his unique talent to “score” Robinson, despite a number of criminal convictions including cocaine possession, says: “I’ve gone to Qatar, I’ve gone to Doha and scored gear on the sesh [a night out] while they’re all praying. In another section of the video, Robison can be seen singing that he is “king of the whole Islam race,” before declaring his love for Israel. The far-right campaigner has become something of a favourite among notorious pro-Israel groups. Some have even admitted to paying for Robinson’s legal costs and “bringing foreign pressure on the UK government to ensure Mr. Robinson’s safety and eventual release”.
"In the video, Robinson gives the impression that his love affair with Israel is paying off by admitting that on occasions he has to “get [his] Zionist card out which says that [he is] a Zionist”, after which he claims he “bought everything”. The footage ends with Robinson saying: “Palestine! F*ck Palestine. Why would you support Palestine,” adding: “If there was a war tomorrow, which probably there would be, I would be there in the front line fighting for Israel”. The footage – released by the Sun – captures the growing bond between the far-right and Israel." [Whining about "racists" removed.]
"Leaders of the far-right – like white nationalist Richard Spencer [bullshit about harboring "Nazi sympathies" removed] gave a ringing endorsement to Israel’s Nation-State Law saying: “I have great admiration for Israel’s nation-state law. Jews are, once again, at the vanguard, rethinking politics and sovereignty for the future, showing a path forward for Europeans.” In another incident, a former Israeli soldier who was a member of Tommy Robinson’s campaign addressed protestors on a London street saying: “no matter what the left call us, I am the world’s proudest Jewish Nazi”. The trend has led to what critics are describing as “the unholy alliance between Israel and alt-right ideologues”. They say that what unites Israel, far-right ideologue Steve Bannon and Spencer more than anything else is their animosity towards the liberal left, Islam and global institutions like the UN, which prioritises a global order based on the rule of law over assertive ethno-religious nationalism."
>>14094 Tommy is right about the immigration problem, but thinks because Jews have sovereignty in Israel that somehow they are "on our side." He either is controlled opposition (that very well could be) or is very naive and brainwashed.
This equivalent would be like me saying "I don't want to live in tyranny, but I do support politicians who want to confiscate firearms from citizens." Can't have it both ways.
The US Supreme Court ruled unanimously on Wednesday that the Excessive Fines Clause in the 8th Amendment applies to state and local governments.
Announced in an opinion written by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on her second day back on the bench following a December cancer surgery, the ruling limits states' abilities to seize property and impose fines deemed excessive on citizens who break the law.
"For good reason, the protection against excessive fines has been a constant shield throughout Anglo-American history: Exorbitant tolls undermine other constitutional liberties," wrote Ginsburg, as the court sided with Tyson Timbs of Marion Indiana, whose $42,000 Land Rover SUV was seized by the state following a guilty plea for selling $385 worth of heroin to an undercover detective.
Following a plea bargain, Timbs was sentenced to a year of home detention followed by five years of probation, as well as $1,200 in fees.
"Excessive fines can be used, for example, to retaliate against or chill the speech of political enemies . . . Even absent a political motive, fines may be employed in a measure out of accord with the penal goals of retribution and deterrence."
Timbs drew wide support from civil liberties organizations, according to the Washington Post.
Other USSC Justices were highly critical of property seizures and fines, with Justice Clarence Thomas suggesting that civil forfeitures had become "widespread and highly profitable."
“This system — where police can seize property with limited judicial oversight and retain it for their own use — has led to egregious and well-chronicled abuses,” Thomas wrote, referring to reporting by The Washington Post and the New Yorker.
At oral argument, Timbs’s lawyer said the case was a simple matter of “constitutional housekeeping.” -Washington Post
The US Department of Transportation (DOT) says it is exploring legal options to claw back $2.5 billion from California in federal funds which have already been spent on the ill-fated statewide high-speed rail system, according to the New York Times.
The Trump administration is also canceling a $929 million grant which was allocated to the California High-Speed Rail Authority detailed in a letter from DOT, just one week after California Governor Newsom announced that the project had been derailed by cost overruns and numerous delays. Instead of canceling the entire project, however, Newsom announced that the state will focus on finishing the line currently under construction, running 171 miles from Merced to Bakersfield - and could open as soon as 2027.
The decision to yank the grant money and claw back the billions in federal funds comes one day after California filed a lawsuit along with 15 other states challenging President Trump's emergency declaration on the border.
The $77 billion Los Angeles-to-San Francisco bullet train, which has been a goal of California transportation planners for decades, has long faced opposition from Mr. Trump and other Republicans. But on Tuesday morning, the president explicitly tied the rail line to efforts to stymie construction of the Mexican border wall. -New York Times
Trump slammed California's decision to sue, noting on Tuesday over Twitter that "The failed Fast Train project in California, where the cost overruns are becoming world record setting, is hundreds of times more expensive than the desperately needed Wall!"
