Hallo Ernst,

Ich verstehe nicht wie die Wasserknappheit zunehmen kann wenn die Polkappen die ganze Zeit schmelzen.

Hast du Elfenjungen oder Studienarbeiten zu diesem Thema, vielleicht sogar selbst Wissen was weiterhelfen kann?

Ich kann mir das nur erklären durch das ganze Waser was eingelagert wird in Plastikflashcen (allein bei Aldi und Lidl ist es ja schon einiges wenn das mal bedacht wird auf den gesamten Kontinent.)

Elfenjunge der mich dazu veranlasst :

Ich bin faul, also nur aus dem Kopf heraus und ja, eigentlich /b/.

Grundwasser/Meereswasser-Unterschied. Wasserverteilung = Wasserknappheit? Wasserverteilung hängt mit Klima zusammen, wo (Region) regnet es wann, was wiederum relevant für Grundwasser ist, welches meines Wissens nach Trinkwasser ist und eben nicht Meereswasser, auch wenn es vielleicht wirklich sowas wie Meereswasserentsalzungsanlagen gibt, ich weiß nur, dass es sie bei SimCIty3000 gab.

Meerwasser =/= Trinkwasser.
Wasserknappheit ist hautsächlich ein Problem in gegenden in denen sowieso wenig Wasser zur verfügung steht, denn dort trocknen natürliche Seen und Flüsse aus auf die Menschen und Tiere angewiesen sind.

Da können noch so viele Polkappen schmelzen, ein See irgendwo in Zentralafrika hat davon wenig.

Had my first encounter with the Heart of the Spire today. It did not go very well :DD It was my first successfull Watcher run, so I have "ascended" (not sure if it counts without defeating the heart) every role one time now. Have to say every class is fun to play, they did a decent job designing this. Also with the experience from other classes I have to replay Ironclad, I wonder if that will feel different now with the experience from the other classes under the belt.

>She died in WC2, right? Sadly, I not get far in WC2 yet.
Yeah, she did, she committed sudoku in the Heaven's Gate-mission when she crashed her fighter into a Kiltathi base, because she believed her fiancee was held captive and tortured there.
>I not get far in WC2 yet.
I also struggled a lot with WC2, I think it is considerably more difficult than WC1. The fact that I played it on PC and that the rendering sometimes stuttered didn't help either.

Well, such thoughts still don't stop me from being sentimental because I have layers upon layers of mental gymnastics to justify an idea, discredit it, then validate it again through another means. Truly, the human mind is the most entertaining toy one could possess.
Which recently lead me to the thought that another reason why intelligence is not a virtue besides ethics/morals is that intellect is concerned purely with the computation of relationships between relationships of relationships of relatively simple things, resulting in conclusions that are not useful at all.
Kind of how for hundreds and hundreds of years, big brain IQ160 theologians spent considerable mental effort on resolving contradictions and elaborating ambiguities in the christian religion that honestly are not of any importance, value or utility at all, and amount to nothing but mental masturbation. "Bro, did Christ really die on the cross, or did he ascend before death, leaving behind an illusion? Or was it not an illusion, but a body deprived of holy spirit? Bro, what if he died but what died on the cross was not Christ himself, but his purely material aspect? Bro, what about that immaculate conception bro, how does it work?". A bunch of bullshit honestly.

It can be the case that considerable mental processing power is spent for the sake of nothing valuable at all, if intellect has no wisdom to guide it.

Thread for discussion of paleontology, paleo art, geology, etc. I have recently become interested in this topic and would like to learn more.

Oculudentavis khaungraae was described last year as an avialan dinosaur. Then the original paper was retracted when it was shown to be a lizard (following the discovery of a second specimen). But the name & description are still valid according to the ICZN. So now further work will have to cite a retracted paper. It’s unclear why the retraction occurred since incorrect phylogenetic placement is usually not met with such a severe measure. It’s possible the provenance of the fossil (from controversial Burmese amber) was a significant factor in this decision.

What are some good alternatives? TikTok is owned by Chinese multinationals. YT is garbage owned by Google. Just creating a new email these days often requires a phone number and it's becoming increasingly a pain in the ass to even find any kind of disposable email or fake vmail inbox to use to create accounts anywhere. Like if I wanted to host videos where am I even supposed to go? Twitch? Twitch is owned by Amazon. Is there even anything left out there that is independent, free, and/or anonymous?

I don't care about them anyway. They'll follow what's popular once it becomes popular. I've been reaching out to people who share my personal interests, BUT with a view to opening up private channels of communication with them. It doesn't have to be about building a decentralized network per say. It's about building connections based around any and all shared interests. Start from there.

There's also forums, though they're a dying breed. The current net's social credit system doesn't let them hold any meaningful value.

I kind of suspect that these are the sorts of conversations people were having when the bbs boards snd culture were dying and AOL chatrooms were taking over. I like to think that in a very real sense chans became their successors and we are simply in another transitional period. The problem, of course, is that most things of which I am aware are corporate like Discord, reddit, Twitch etc and worse are all datafarms, but that doesn't mean there isn't going to ever be a successor ever again.

Are you sure that's not just selection bias based on your dad's educational and class background? Half the stories I hear out of Pakistan are either people chimping out over muh honor (including a great case of pissed off lawyers storming a cardiac hospital and smashing life-saving machinery), or people chimping out over muh prophet's honor.

And 90% of my regrettable interactions with Pakistanis over the internet has taken the form of them shitting on Hindus/Indians for being barbarians/dark, going on about how they're actually Arabs/Persians (and so not the same as those filthy brown Hindus), or at best going on about how NWerners are the master race of the Indian subcontinent (Indian Punjabis do this too).

Also, my interactions with Muslims in general has led to an impression of supreme arrogance. Not the really religious ones, because truly religious people tend to be humbled regardless of their background. But Muslims who take it as an identity over a personal spiritual mission have the most obnoxious, duplicitous triumphalism in the world, even worse than the same type of Christian.

You guys seem to misunderstand me about hierarchy. It's not good, it's shit, but it's inevitable because there is no other way to organize a large-scale human society. Managing hierarchy is about making the best of a shit situation, it's not a good in and of itself.

> I don't know why any of us bothers trying to talk directly to some American considering there's only a handful of us here but it's routinely wrong and the assumed person is somebody else.
lol I am not RAC. Wait a minute are neither one of us RAC? Lol.

Anyway these were just my personal observations out of a very small pool and yes indeed it could be that partly because of educational biases however I would also like to point out that the Indians acting trashy I have observed have been just as likely to be educated and like I said they act like they have a chip on their shoulder or something. Desi girls are awesome btw. As a white dude who knows next to nothing about these living cultures and probably I'm just adding fuel to the fires here north Indians or whatever they are actually do look pretty Aryan in the Persian sense to me whereas south Indians--the ones who act like everyone is dirt beneath them almost in a caste sense for having climbed the US citizenship hierarchy--look much more like idk some kind of Polynesians or non-Asiatic looking Pacific islanders.

I too see the inevitability of hierarchy. There is a famous text from a feminist from the 70s about a group she was a member of and she talks about hidden hierarchies and problems that come with denial of hierarchy in groups and exemplified in the group she was a member of.

Their style is well suited for animation, it's cartoony but in a way that it's conductive for quick, high energy movement. The fact that guys like Imaishi are westaboos so that gives their stuff more appeal outside of the usual audiences.
I haven't kept up with Trigger after KLK though that Rikka girl is pretty hot and I've been meaning to actually watch LWA one of these days, and I haven't watched seasonal anime in ages. It's mostly been manga for me.

I couldn't find the old thread. If it still exists please ignore it and pretend this one is the only one that exists, thanks.

For a while now we have a steam group so Ernst can play nice online games with or against other Ernsts.
We actually got a really nice CSGO group going that played regularly with each other.
Sadly we haven't really played much lately so i try it again on /int/ (where i wasn't very succesfull a few month ago) to find fresh blood for our group.
Like i said, CSGO is/was played mostly but it is not a CSGO group, you can ask for players of any other onlinegame, too.
Skill doesn't matter, just have some fun and a good time with Ernst.

  3. Join the steam group
  4. Download CSGO and play to the point where you can join competitive games
  5. Ask in the Steam group chat if someone wants to play CSGO in the near future

To remain anonymous, you could send a letter(if you see an address in the tax return) and include a throwaway email for her to reply. To make it less weird, just stress that you wanted to warn her about security, etc. If she answers, then go from there. If not, then you have met your moral obligation. The only downside is how she may react when she realizes a stranger has her address. That may inflict greater harm upon her psyche than the return of her data/a security lesson warrants.
So, yeah, definitely pray about it.
I've found numerous thumb drives, but luckily none had any identifiable information and so
I've never had to face this dilemma.

Can't find the energy to write on my thesis, can't find the energy to tip a text for the room castings for dorm rooms.
Wondering if I can find a room, I find many excuses to not write people when there the price is right nonetheless. I mean I don't want the balcony infront of my room and I don't want to deal with searching a room mate already in december myself and so on.

Wish I knew some cool people there so I could easily live alone. Well less money will break that dream anyway.

Pretty nice of them to "remedy" this issue after two fucking months during the fucking enrolment procedure, but whatever.
I'd have been pretty fucking mad if I failed to enrol because of an undiscovered bureaucratic error. (That slipped past like three layers of bureaucracy.)

I woke up at 8 o' clock and had a small breakfast and then just lounged around the house. My sister went to pick up her new textbooks, and after she left, I immediately set to make lunch, only to find it's still only 10 o' clock.
So I went and picked up my package. They misspelt my name on the package. I guess it happens when you have a long name with a slightly archaic spelling.

I think I now own every book of interest from this press. (Except for maybe their Mongolian-Hungarian dictionary, but I'm not particularly interested that much in the Mongolian language as of yet.)

Managed to write 5000 characters for the thesis, might finish reading a chapter and taking some notes to make a paragraph out of it that then can be compared to the source and how that is similar.If everything goes super well I might have a finished but not polished or streamlined thesis by 1st September and having about 10000 characters more than necessary, I nearly hit the required amount of characters today and I still need to write a small chapter and 3-4 pages of introduction and a summery. The general idea would be down on paper then if I get it done. I just hope it works that way, came home and have been doing nothing besides going to the grocery store, I feel queasy. Might have to do with seeing my coworker today, we were quite reserved. On the weekend she wrote me she fears I would delete her number once I get out of town. We both limited ourselfs, I told her I don't want to write anymore and she said don't touch me anymore. It's just that we majorly fucked up by getting so close and then she blows it all off, well understandable but still feels shit. I still fucking like her and always like talking to her but there now is this uneasy feel that I can't have her which makes me avoid her. I know that I can feel the same for other women that can be easily, if they make me feel that comfortable around her, but atm there is none but her. Fucking shit.

I've been trying to write a full-size novel for sometime now, and I've only got past the first thirty pages. I have the plot in mind, but I have trouble in building the narrative. The description of events looks very mundane and dull. I don't know how to use an interesting combination of words.

Writing is very much a question of technique and not just ideas. The question of form, of how to give story a form. This is probably the harder part. It takes practice. I never really was drawn to writing literature myself but I studied it and technique is what it takes just like in every other art.
Agree that a novel is too much for the beginning. Don't expect to write good stuff too soon I guess.

If you want a classic book on how literature works, but not a book that is "10 tips for writing your novel": Story and discourse. narrative structure in fiction and film by Seymour Chatman. It breaks down how narration works content and form wise.

There's a very good series of craft-of-writing lectures on Youtube by Brandon Sanderson. He's a good writer and a best-seller, and every year his class at BYU (where the lectures are taken from) produces at least one or two professional writers.

Granted, he's a science fiction/fantasy author, and a lot of his advice is geared towards that genre in particular, but to a great extent the craft of writing is universal, and I'm not aware of any other resource of similar size and quality (certainly not for free). Like any art, writing is as much a skill you can learn as it is an expression of vision and genius. All you can really do is learn from the advice of masters, and practice.

I tried to set up a weekly writing group a while back, but nobody was interested. The idea is that every week we would submit some piece of writing, read each others' work, and offer comments and recommendations.

Writing is really hard tbh. I try to follow the basic techniques which are usually helpful. Like not repeating nouns or adjectives, switching up sentence order, and creating immersion with the five sensations.
