Because there needs to be a balance between shitposting and serious discussions. Having one or the other is hardly anything I would call fun.

Kohl is far from anything resembling the old days of KC yet the community is extremely active which is why posting there is addicting. The 100mb filesize limit is also very amenable to filesharing, so there's that, too. If there were fewer unfunny shitposters and pedoscum, KC would be perfect.

bernd.group is promising, but needs more activity.

EC, on the other hand, is much slower and considerably less fun as a result. There are a few legacy posters from Old KC who've taken up residence here, namely Metalpunk Catalan and Thicc Mick, which is why I occasionally haunt this place. Still, this place is way too stuffy and boring.

That's one of the reasons I stayed here. It's easy to waste many hours a day on a fast board and why would I waste my time on these shitposters? Wasting my life on KC was one of the worst choices I ever made and over time it will warp you and your perspectives. I cannot imagine how mentally damaged the actual perpetual virgins now are.

This place is at least slow enough that it forces me to either engage with something mentally and really think about it, or to go and watch documentaries instead or hell even clear my backlog. It's nourishing. It's like the difference between eating buttered brussels sprouts versus subsisting entirely on dollar menu KFC. It might taste good but it's going to ruin you quickly on imageboard shitholes. If you're not used to it on a good board it'll leave a stale taste at first until your mind starts to crave it over time.

The real issue with EC is just there isn't enough of us, which is probably why it is good. When you get too many people you approach ruining the hobby tier, who inevitably bring in all their worst shitposters until it looks like ylialauta, sosach, or k*hl, who in turn bring more people on until it is like 4kanker which is literally just a reddit clone at this point filled with cranky Fox watching literal 60 year old boomers. The only other evolutionary pathway to the IB is either irrelevance and coziness, or degeneracy until the point it is only not shut down by the feds because it's turned into a honeypot like cabbage probably is.

Alternative theories.
  1. Governments like big dick statements like space programs
  2. The emerging theory of 5th generation warfare is stateless and frontless, having your own satellites is quickly becoming the equivalent of having border fortifications in the past
  3. Existing 4+ gen warfare is networked, and a closed network with your own carriers is harder for other nations to disrupt, not having to rely on NATO for their BNet gives turkey another chip to bargain with when they want to break with NATO leadership on something. Strategic importance backed by network independence.
  4. Space programs are great covers for long range missile programs because the technologies are virtually identical
Tbh, world's pretty unstable right now, and resources are just getting scarcer as the climate collapses over the coming decades. Makes sense that those who can get things in motion right now, are making things happen right now.

It appears the EU will actually go through and sanction Russian officials over the Navalny jailing*.

5th Feb - During Borrell's visit to Moscow, a visit that was hoped to ease tensions and possibly secure the Russian vaccine for deployment in the EU, Russia kicked out diplomats from Germany, Sweden and Poland over alleged participation in the Navalny protests.
Borrell was surprised with this information during a meeting with Lavrov, additionally Lavror called the EU "an unreliable partner" following these discussions.
Initially it was clear that the EU wasn't ready to do anything over Navalny but proclaim deep concern, but after this trainwreck of a visit it seems things are rapidly moving towards a break in relations.

17th Feb - The European Court of Human Rights on Wednesday ordered Russia to “immediately” release jailed Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny, saying his life was in danger in prison.
Russia is legally bound by this court, but it's obvious that they weren't going to release Navalny. This seems to be more of setting the ground for sanctions.

Yesterday, the EU met again with members of Navalny's team to discuss implementing sanctions and today they should come out and announce a new round of sanctions.

Hello, I will post here some jokes I collected over the years way back on KC /int/.
Feel free to add your own.
There are way more than fit in one post, but I won't necessarily be able to post regularly.

Jerusalem's highest rabbi is on an official trip in England. On one
morning, he wakes up really early. It is Jom Kippur. He steps on the
balcony and sees the hotel's golf course.
He thinks "It's so early, nobody will see me". He grabs his golf gear
and steps on the green.
Up in heaven, St. Peter says to god "Do you see what the highest rabbi
of Jerusalem is doing? On Jom Kippur? Do you not want to punish him for
it?"
God nods. The rabbi drives off and hits hole in one, a perfectly rare
occurrence.
St. Peter: "I don't understand - you wanted to punish him!"

Do any Ernsts enjoy birding here? Recently I've been getting into it. About two weeks ago I bought a cheap bird feeder at tractor supply and hung it in my backyard. At first nothing bothered with the feeder, but slowly a number of birds began to take notice. Now I have chipping sparrows, house sparrows, house finches, northern cardinals, and gray catbirds visiting the feeder. I also leave a bowl of water on the ground for american robins and european starlings, which I change every morning. Unfortunately, I do not have a decent camera so I cannot provide images of my backyard visitors. Here are some photos I found using google images.

Squirrels are definitely one of the more people-like animals bumbling around. Also raccoons. I know this might be controversial but I legit see cuttlefish as people to an extent. There's something about their kinestheseology that reminds me of the way people move, although I'm using "people" here both as synonym for human and as synonym for rudimentary sapience.

I'm planning on interacting with crows this summer. I'm already debating what food and shiny objects to leave out for befriending them.

Seconding Biblegateway although frankly nothing quite beats the feel of a Bible's gilded pages in your hands. I'd also encourage KJV or whatever the Catholics use (fun fact: the Protestant Bible is missing a bunch of books from the Catholic one including iirc Jubilees, so you're missing out on some stuff, but then again it could be argued by not reading Nag Hammadi and various other non-canonical texts you're missing out regardless) however the KJV uses such flowery and archaic English that I'd imagine it being more of a chore to read as non-English speaker and besides which it is not the Koran so it isn't like reading a different version is super critical. However that being stated the NIV in particular I find myself disagreeing with certain translation choices, although again it is a compilation of centuries of texts that you'd need Latin, Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic lernu to fully comprehend so it isn't like you're going to get the full original contexts anyway, which I guess could only be emphasized with the KJV so that you're actively forced to research what every verse means.

I also discovered that it was a Catholic priest who originally came up with the Big Bang theory and that Hubble iirc simply made some corrections on his maths which is why it is Hubble associated with it not Georges Lemaitre https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georges_Lema%C3%AEtre
However, apparently there's some new theories positing that the Big Bang theory itself may not be accurate with the Ekpyrotic theory and such
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ekpyrotic_universe
Regardless I would find it important for any learned man to read at least some of the Bible no matter his profession if he is in literature, athropology, or whatever, and that I'd further posit it an incredibly deep, rich, and multilayered work that will take the ordinary person many many years to come to fully appreciate. The more you look at it feels like it exists outside of time, or that its author does, who embedded Itself into time to make it understandable to a bunch of 3D dwelling savages.

A short 120p novel in which the narrator becomes obessed with another person, Nicola. Though it seems not sexual, there is some ambivalance to tot, yet only in one passages. The obession stems more from the charakter trais of Nicola, his behavior and closure, also his power. The narrator wants to find out something about Nicola, like a secret.

The whole novel is kinda unsettling tbh, you don't really know what either the narrator nor Nicola really do, they have money and make it by talking, organizing. Designer clothing, cool bars, closed social circles and all that, but the narrators drift through the days and nights, the journeys that are described give off an uncanny vibe, you don't really know what these people are doing and the trained behavior, the high reflexivity (if the narrator is right in his reflexivity, well) of the social games they play just add to this unsettling yet in a way strangely relatable feel. I posted the quote in the today thread but it's also on the book back but it just hits the nail, this book is about drifting. And it does capture the drift quite well. Ofc drifts can also very ernst-like, this is somewhere inbetween.

Hello, I am new here, so I'm not sure whether my post is going to be appropriate or not. Someone sent me here when I asked if there was any imageboard with less racism and rudeness.

I have been very depressed over a single disturbing idea for the past four years, and I need some advice regarding how I can overcome this. I am a twenty-two-year-old Indian man living in India (in case you didn't recognise the flag). When I was about eighteen years old, I started browsing online imageboard communities such as 4chan and Krautchan. Now, a lot of people in such websites have racist and White supremacist leanings. They are generally very impolite to brown/Black people such as myself. Moreover, they justify their racism by citing an ideology known as "race realism".

The idea behind race realism is that darker-skinned races are inherently intellectually inferior to lighter-skinned races, and are hence less evolved in terms of cognitive ability. According to studies conducted by a certain number of IQ researchers, the average IQ of India is around 82, while the average IQ of Sub-Saharan African is in the range 60 to 75. The threshold for intellectual disability in Western countries is supposed to be around 85. Hence the average Indian or African is intellectually disabled by Western standards. This explains why countries with darker-skinned people are poor, and why there has been very little contribution to academic fields from these countries.

Much of this can be attributed to nutrition and education(yes I know you said you doubt this). India, is a poor and not very healthy country and they don't eat much red meat, the average height is fairly low as well. Japan was like this too as they did not eat red meat for religious reasons either, so the average height used to be 5 foot tall. However, once they started eating red meat their height improved. Not only that but I would say their intelligence did too, of course we don't have IQ tests from before they started eating red meat but certainly they do well for themselves in this regard now. Another thing to note about western Europe is that they on average ate far more meat than other nations did, even the peasants regularly ate red meat.

Japan would indeed be a good comparison to make with India. Japan didn't actually achieve much or develop much for a very long time, until they became westernised. In fact India achieved more than they had. The IQ test is just a test and tests can be trained for and education can be tailored to suit certain tests, western schooling does this. China had better nutrition but it was still not good enough nor was their education so they lagged behind the west as well(but again, western education has brought them back up).

India is quite large and development is an issue, however we know that smart Indians exist, there are plenty of them. But because India is so large many people are being left behind, yes there are smart Indians but they are from the richer class that are able to afford better nutrition and better education, most of the nation is being left behind so of course the average IQ will be quite low. India can reach the level of the west but it requires foreign companies to invest heavily into India like they have done with China, even then there is the risk India may fall into the middle income trap(as China is). Speaking of the middle income trap, this is another reason why modern western nations do so well in regards to development, we broke through first and were able to become global first glass citizens on the backs of nations like China, Japan managed fairly early too once it westernised. We are now service economies yet nations like China are going to find that hard to follow, let alone India who has to follow the west AND China.

By your logic Hispanic people (big consumers of beef, and biggest in Europe) would be the tallest and chaddest, while Orthodox nations like Russians that abstain from meat and dairy for religious reasons for half the year would be short and weak, yet this is not the case.

A man with the perfect voice for reading poetry, reads poetry.

The reader is anonymous, but it's possible he is an actor. In an old article, film critic Roger Ebert wrote this:
>The anonymous reader signs himself "Tom O'Bedlam," a name taken from a 17th century poem about a lunatic. I believe I recognize his unmistakable voice, but that is for you to decide.

In thinking about how neet it would be to have my own genetics engineering lab it dawned on me that contrary to megacorps wishes and much to Monsanto's chagrin what we're going to need to do then and should be doing now is having genetic hazard signs. Like if I was to help engineer an especially smart and large subspecies of salticidae to have a large genehazard warning sign with like transcripting or unraveling DNA inside a yellow triangle, which sure we already do have a mutagenic hazard sign which is itself not very intuitive and hence bit of a failure of graphical design imo but it only is about our DNA being corrupted and affected by some chemical. What we should do is put genehazard signs on certain things which should not be allowed to come out of a lab and possibly reproduce in the wild or potentially cross pollinate with wild natural life. In other words Monsanto crops should have big bright red warning signs about being genetic hazards and likewise anything with advanced genetical engineering. I of course would relish the opportunity to put those stickers on the obnoxious fucking GloFish at pet stores but really it should be something about not letting such engineered or altered creatures out of a lab.

But man, would I enjoy giving octopuses and cuttlefish much extended lifespans and perhaps even enhanced intellect. Part of their problem is actually just having such really short life cycles which I suspect is hampering their ability to develop culture and thus pass down their cultural and other learnings to offspring in much the way we do. Being largely solitary predators except some cuttlefish swarms doesn't help matters.
