I was looking for an informative video about the origin of the 'easy' spray cheese but got nothing of value.
Anyway the video reminded me of people who watch other people eating supersized dishes and youtubers who film themselves experiencing that. The US surely have a strange culture.

In The Blues Brothers, a man asks for Cheez Whiz-which comes in a jar- but is actually given a spray can of Easy Cheese. Cheez Whiz sounds funnier, but throwing and catching a jar was probably harder to do. Those break if you drop them.

While this is clearly a shitpost thread in truth I don't entirely know although suspect I have found a great number of contributing factors including our corporatism brainwashing in a Capitalist system to pervert our hyper individualism into nothing but thoughtless selfish assholeism coupled along with our SHIT public school brainwashing architecture which I'd hoped to be shut down for as long as possible. While it might not make much of a difference in the long run because of the fact we have this hyper cancerous youtuber and whatever other garbage culture now it'd been my sincere hope that at least a nationwide bout of homeschooling for a year could help to disrupt that toxicity for a generation of children and future Americans into not being servile uninformed ignorant selfish obedient totalitarianism loving morons like the last generation or two. These "zoomers" as 4kanker has taken to calling them are even more cancerous than my own and my generation is almost as cancerous as the boomers. In fact the only generation I don't outright consider to be garbage here more or less are gen Xers.

t. Probably planning on using this as my vent thread

While I'm unlikely to remain sincere in the depths of my bitching as I just vent here what would be totally inappropriate to say IRL I do in fact deal with them on at least a weekly or more frequent basis and I've come to find white boomers and some of their sprog so thoroughly loathsome it has made it very difficult for me to at times not be sympathetic to the concept of Gott strafing us.

It really doesn't actually taste good on much of anything imho and you can easily melt other kinds of cheeses. I typically use swiss or provolone, sometimes smoked gouda, monterey jack etc. Cheddar is also good.

There are only two dirty guilty pleasures I use that godawful stuff for partly because it's too expensive (this garbage is literally more expensive than a block of walmart off brand swiss or many other cheeses) and partly because it doesn't go so well on anything, and that is mayo and iceberg lettuce sandwiches, and sandwiches just with that cheese and mayo on one side and vinegar/oil with italian herbs and spices on the other. I've been eating that lately solely because I'm lazy and trying to put off the next supply run on my shart-n-mart as much as possible so that's mainly what's available in gas stations, which makes it even more expensive than normal. It's like close to $4 for a small pack of slices. I can get a pound of good swiss for $9 at the deli or close to a kilo of walmart swiss for about as much as half pound of that crap costs me.

Video is about Russia getting smaller. But my question is, do you think Russia's collapse in early 90s would not have happened if they didn't lose a massive amount of their population? Do you think it was ultimately generational population shocks that killed USSR?

This is a photo of Engelbert Dolfuß, Benito Mussolini and Gyula Gömbös meeting in Rome.
Gömbös was the prime minister of Hungary who tried to copy Mussolini's fascism. The press often called him Gömbölini because of that.

I think Dolfuß gives the photo a very whacky aura, and I wanted to share it mainly because of that.

>A 5-part series, behind the scenes look at Gorbachev’s reforms and the ensuing collapse of the USSR. Winner of the Dupont Gold Baton for Best Documentary Series and called ‘the best BBC series of the decade’ by the London Independent. The films trace Gorbachev’s rise and fall from the first experiments with the policies of Glasnost and Perestroika through the collapse of Communism, the ascent of Boris Yeltsin and the end of the Soviet Union. Produced for Brian Lapping Prods.

I finished watching this, and it was breddy gud. You can find the whole series on youtube (in horrible quality and with audio only one side):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NRHpwGC77ig&list=PL3HEryBztOrohRgs_-KrHq-Xz-0iXYG3_
It's nice, it goes from the very late years of Brezhnev to 1991. The documentary itself was made in 1991 and it features extensive interviews with key players of the events discussed in the film. It presents contrasting views and paints a good picture of what the mindset of the upper soviet government characters was and what their personal motivation was to bring about what the documentary calls "The Second Russian Revolution".
I liked it, now sadly I need to find a new series to watch.

Where were you on 911?

I was 19 years old and working in a tractor radiator factory, soldering radiators for tractors and commercial generators. I lasted about 3 weeks there because I was too tall for the work place and hunching over the manlet size workbench was causing my back to seize up.

When the planes hit we were all standing around listening to the radio broadcast, and the manager came along and shut off the radio ''out of respect for the 100,000 dead in New York'' he said, then ''back to work you can listen to the radio on your own time''

It was the first week of school after the summer holidays, I was in 6th grade an playing outside with the kid from upstairs when another neighborhood kid came around and told us a plane had crashed into the Empire State Building, but it seemed more like an accident still. I then went home and saw the crashes on TV, the building obviously being the WTC (which I didn't know prior) not Empire State and both towers being hit making it clear that this was a terrorist attack, not a tragic accident.

We had a thread on old EC and there were a handful of people trying to lose weight this summer.

Have you made any more progress? Anyone starting to try who wasn't back then?

What are your methods and routines? What is your diet like?

I really wish that German vegetarian poster from KC that yelled at people for avoiding carbs was here. That was always really fun.

Personally, I think my goal of 19 bmi was a bad idea. I don't think there's much health benefit of being that compared to 21 or 22. I weigh what I did at 13 years old now. I'm really happy about that but while it looks good for my stomach it looks worse in other places. I'm probably going to stop here.

I'm most interested in the Finn who had a goal he wanted to reach by July.

I don't really have as much of an objective to stop smoking itself as I need a something to do so I can feel like I'm accomplishing something. Plus, quitting smoking was on my list for a long while and I'm glad I'm doing this. The first day without nicotine literally caused me to have panic attacks and feel near suicidal. It can't be a good idea to rely on such a substance and on such a disgusting industry to maintain basic mental stability.

It wasn't a question of infinite growth so much as technic growth and rising prosperity for everyone, similar to what we have but with the gains of economy largely being spread smoothly across society rather than completely concentrated within a few oligarchs and their immediate specialist servants like stockbrokers, realtors, surgeons, highest paid employees on the corporate board, and other servants things like that. Kind of roughly along the lines of how the actual material conditions of the average Western person exceed even the highest royals of medieval period in all areas but land ownership, largely due to the freeing of energy and technical innovations. I simply do not know whether it is possible to spread those means and that wealth more evenly (compared to America I know we can) and how far you can go before you push the system to the brink of collapse. Like for example if the highest head of neurosurgery was paid exactly the same as the janitor and fast food worker I'm pretty sure that system would crash almost immediately. My question is how close you can get it to that point.

Regarding technical innovation I see it as like say the increasing speed and power of computational technology. The power of a $250 graphics card today can blow the performance of an entire $4000 system out of the water from 15 years ago, and depending on the component can run more energy efficiently too. So in that regard it is what I meant by increasing the overall wealth generation. I'm not dumb enough to posit perpetual growth as in consumerism under Capitalism I know factually that is going to crash as one of the simplest purely mathematical models to understand. I don't think you need to be a math professor's son to intuitively understand the inevitable failure of capitalist Consumerism any more than pandemics are inuitive I suck at math and don't believe you need to understand algebra to see that 2+2=4 which is the inevitability of these things.

What would happen if you went back in time and tried to save the USSR from Stalin by warning Lenin and Leonid Trotsky and bringing with you some sample of future tech as proofs?

We all know that Stalin was evil. Pretty incompetent in a lot of ways too. But my question here is, I've heard it repeatedly said that Trostky was a madman and Lenin was a butcher. Russia on this board specififally named Lenin as a butcher. Were they all really just a bunch of opportunistic psychopaths? Or were there real revolutionary leaders? If they had the bomb by 1935 would they have simply nuked every other country on earth even having full warning?

I've been watching scenes from that Chernobyl series too although certain elements depressingly remind me of what I saw in America during the pandemic. It's hard to explain and I wonder if any other Americans got reminded of us by the recklessness, negligence, incompetence, apparatchiks, sending people to their death or danger knowingly and lying about it, things like that.

But anyway was Lenin that bad? If you warned everybody about Stalin in some period between 1938 and 1917, or if you tried to warn the Soviets about what would happen to the USSR, would it have changed anything, or would they have been even more bloodthirsty and tyrannical?

Protip, if you want to overcome Napoleon's achievements, you need to understand 4th generation warfare so intuitively that you can break its rules and come out on top. Napoleon's military legacy was to redefine modern warfare, his conquests ended eventually but many of the ideas that arose under his leadership are still in active use.

In other words, spend the next decade at least doing intensive study under the best generals you can get, and then successfully alter one of the fundamental assumptions of 4gw. That's what'll get you recognised as a Napoleon, not conquests.

I didn't know about that. I literally had no clue either about them shooting something to the moon nor having done that, nor the fact that Khrushchev had presented Ike Eisenhow with a gift replica of the Russian moon object right after getting there. That is such distinctively Russian troll diplomacy.

Anyways here have this one hour long documentary about the fateful trip Khrushchev made to America for a couple weeks back in 1959 that I am watching right now. I akso think it's incrdibly hilarious that this guy visited a fucking IBM plant back in '59 and all he really seemed to care about were farmers and supermarkets and having cafeteria trays to pick out.

>It is basically using public resources as bribery
This is the wrong way to look at it.

In every healthy society, the group makes sure that even the worst off are taken care of to some basic level. If we consider small hunter-gatherer bands to be the evolutionary default of humanity, then this state can also be considered a natural one.

Capitalism is unnatural and inhuman. Regularized transfers of wealth from the rich to the poor are a necessary part of maintaining a healthy society that exists in harmony with human nature. This is why libertarianism bug me so much. The fundamental premise is illogical. Man is an obligatorily social creature - always has been, and always will be. Liberating man from binding social duties in the name of atomistic rights will ultimately destroy society... which naturally harms the individuals who exist as a part of that society.

>insert americabear bff's
I actually literally switched parties partly over this back in like 2018, 2019. Trying to give nuclear tech to a defacto enemy nation we are in bed with, who use our oil money to fund and supply Jihadist movements over the world, and who practice quite possibly the shittiest form of Islam on earth--Wahhabism--is terrifying. Can you even fucking imagine those peoole getting their hands on dirty bomb material??? So the guy decided he not only wouldn't be better, but would suck dick harder than any other neocon we ever had.

There is a reason why genuine independent politicians like Sanders and Ron Paul get routinely shafted. I know there's a lingering Cold War and post-Cold War geopolitical element to it, but I cannot fathom the relationship being remotely good for us and it is the major part of why we went to Iraq again and tried to destroy Syria and Iran because of Saudis and the right wing Israeli governements of scumbags like Sharon and Netanyahu who himself btw is racked by political scandal and nationwide protests in Israel demanding his ouster.

I should clarify that I obviously don't support feeding Israel and her people to the wolves. What I do believe is supporting such piece of shit governments will make that too inevitable someday. This is also why it's not wise to support those two faced sons of bitches in the Knesset because in case anyone forget them selling our missile tech to China, Israel is out for Israel and they will sell us out to China in a heartbeat. These are two of the worst allies that we've ever had and it's partly because our cocksucker political establishment hates people and places like Venezuela and Libya so damn much they'd rather see them burned to ashes then make peace.

>Regarding the Shia I've come to understand that Shiites are real mates

The big difference I think is that Sunnis have inherited the mentality that they're supposed to be on top of the world, while Shia have inherited the mentality of being an eternally persecuted minority. Both of these mentalities are enhanced, or produced where not present, by international media and preacher circuits.

So at "worst", Shia have a furious rage against the people who have (generally rightly) been seen as oppressing them. Whereas Sunnis are the most obnoxious entitled shitters on the planet. I've seen so many who love it whenever some infidel says anything positive about Islam, but who will never, ever, ever extend that same genuine respect and appreciation to someone else's culture.

It's the same kind of bad faith I would expect from Christians in the 17th century, who purge all the Jews and Muslims and heretics from their countries and then cry when the Japanese do the same to Christians.

That is the most childish excuse I hear all the time. If you are an adult you decide what to do, not some stupid idea that "adults don't do that".

A legit excuse is doing responsible things like doing dishes painting houses putting your kids to bed but since you are a NEET you don't have any of those things to do.

Well I mean you didn't have to be so rude to him about it but yeah, I am an adult and not a NEET and I play vidya and eat ice cream all the damn time and I can buy and eat as much capn crunch whenever the fuck I damn well please and stay up late because guess what, I'm an adult now and I can make up all my own rules.

But don't be so harsh on him mate. Reading between the lines it probably is because as a NEET, which is where we've all been before, you get way more self conscious about wasting time and playing childish things and being a general manchild. When you're in college or working all the time you clearly don't give a fuck because those reasons.

It's all about trying to find the balance and NEETdom makes you feel incredibly unbalanced in terms of times wasted and your own internalized self concept of being a failure or like a child and so playing a game like idk Mario Cart just really pushes that point home to that terrifying furry NEET weeb whatever it was mindfuck video I saw posted many years ago in a webm thread.

Of course at the same time I guess it's just generally easier to rationalize wasting your life by claiming to yourself that some game is teaching you about history or making you better at analytical decisions or something.
