Recently on /b/ the idea of having an Ernstchan-internal chess tournament came up. So let's give it a shot. I have created an invite-only chess club on chess.com which you can join by clicking here: https://www.chess.com/club/ernstchan-chess-club/join/e00a81

I could only a 30 members club because I only have a gold account, but 30 should be sufficient for now, considering this is a dead imageboard.

Maybe we can have regular live tournaments, including live streams on Ernstiwan/Discord.
If we get enough members by then, I'd suggest a Blitz tournament for October 31st.

What do guys you think?

This is exactly how I felt about Discord. No I don't need another fucking account for gaming. I've wanted absolutely nothing to do with it and having seen just how cancerous the shit is with people launching raids out of it can see how totallu vindicated I am in that belief. It was through discord that poltards were organizing raids against KC for example.

For a very long time in my life and arguably still now, I’ve barely been to social media under the excuse that is was a loss of time.
But... I finally realized the contradiction. If I was to avoid social media, I had to avoid the anonymous ones too. So I decided to try when given the chance. But, I rarely got enough envy to start one account. So it’s not the idea to jump.

Nothing better than going outside after class wearing a bathrobe to shield you against a cold wind and beating a pool of ice with a stick until your hand feels numb.

>How the fuck do obese people even function without being in daily excruciating pain and agony, discomfort and ill health?
It's simple: They're in excruciating pain, agony, discomfort and ill health.
That's all there is to being fat.

What I've found out over the past 1-2 years is that because my internet persona was socialised on 4chan and other imageboards, I'm essentially the digital equivalent of a barbarian. Or at least, "normal" communities perceive me as a barbarian.
I got kicked off discords and subreddits for comments most imageboarders wouldn't give much of a shit about. It's infuriating, because I know I'm not "evil" or a troll, I just have different cultural sensibilities to American leftists that run these places. Or American conservatives.

I've used IG in the past but don't really use it anymore, deleted all my pictures a while ago.
Just to play the devil's advocate you can use it anonymously, nobody's forcing you to use your real name or anything & you can also set your account to private so nobody you haven't "approved" can see your posts.
I suppose there are different ways to use it (e.g. if you're an artist who wants to advertise his art), but yeah, if you want to use it to message girls, you need to maintain a profile with good quality pics etc, same as t*nder.

The rationale behind the submachine gun was that the gentler recoil of a pistol cartridge allows one to fire full auto while still hitting the target. Pre-ban fully automatic firearms are prohibitively expensive for civilian ownership in the USA, but currently "binary triggers" that fire twice per trigger pull (once on pull, once on release) are available, which makes SMG-like weapons again a viable choice for civilian ownership. However in recent decades the proliferation of cheap and light body armor has led to SMGs falling out of favor with law enforcement and military users with short-barreled rifles becoming increasingly popular. Do imitation SMGs have any place in the current-day USA or elsewhere for that matter?

That is not necessarily a plus.
I think you overemphasize armor penetration a bit too much.

Like always it depends on the intended use.
Like for hunting I would definitely get something big, as facing an angry hog I would rather have a bigger bullet than more.
Conversely, if you really want to penetrate armor, of course using the round specifically developed for that would probably be advantageous.

That said, just for shooting people dead really everything works. See file attached, chapter "Stopping Power". Shot placement is much more important than caliber.
No. 51391
A well placed shot is also a hell of a lot harder to do when they're all wearing kevlar helmets and body armor. Of course yeah most people get their knowledge from movies and video games and movies and video games are flat out wrong. To this day it mystifies me where the idea came from for suppressors to have that meme sound they use in every movie and game. Shotguns also don't spread out as much and even if they did a 10 or 12 gauge slug will nearly blast a limb off.
No. 51433
What raises my interest is that this bullet apparently works for large hogs. This video is promotional material so inherently suspect but aside from a guy talking it also contains what it claims to be footage of a one-shot stop on a 420 pound boar at a distance of 45 yards; a one shot stop of a 300 pound boar at 25 yards; a one shot stop of a 480 pound boar at 20 yards; a one shot stop of a 448 pound boar at 20 yards; a two shot stop of a 313 pound boar at 40 yards; a two shot stop of a 437 pound boar at 35 yards; a two shot stop of a 358 pound boar at 30 yards; a one shot stop of a 325 pound boar at 50 yards; and a one shot stop of a 550 pound boar at 45 yards. Of course this isn't absolute proof that it works. The footage could be fake, or even if it is real it could be a small selection from many attempts that failed but weren't shown, or the man doing the demonstration might be an unusually good shot since with good enough bullet placement any bullet can kill anything in North America -- in 1953 the world record for largest grizzly bear kill was taken with a brain shot with .22LR through a weak point in the bear's skull. Nevertheless I am intrigued.

Good evening, my fellow Ernsts.

I would like to host a show for /int/, similar to the one currently running under the name "Ernste Folgen" every second Sunday for /b/.
And tomorrow, we'll give it a shot.

I would like to talk with Ernst about beauty; what does Ernst consider beautiful, how beauty may or may not be to the eye of the beholder and how the ideal beauty has changed throughout time and whatever Ernst would like to add.

Ernst is warmly invited to participate in the debate either here by posting in the thread of by calling me through Skype where you would find me as "colmesrey"

We'll start tomorrow, Saturday the 4th of April at UTC+3 00:00.

Identifying the evil trespasser is a lot harder than you may think: the one making a shit post is only the tip of the iceberg, the real deal is the hidden portion of the userbase that approves of it.
In reddit terms, it's the people upvoting the shit post.

This leads to massive issues as moderation usually attempts to remove the visible issue, gets hit by a massive and completely unexpected backlash, and decides that clearly they were in the wrong and that the shit post is actually something good for the community.

A further issue is coordinated bad actors, such as the people organizing raids and moderation takeovers in their off-site secret clubs.
There's a reason reddit went to hell so fast, and it sure wasn't the administration.

Anonymous forums have less issues dealing with both attacks compared to standard forums, samefaggotry is assumed to be the default so it's hard to push change via short-term numberical advantage.

>How do we find the kingdom of Heaven from within, as Jesus spake?
There is no kingdom of Heaven. Your soul is not transcendental and there is nowhere you will be sent to once your lowly form withers away. If there is a God, or some superior creator figure, it is only natural that he doesn't care about our individual actions. There is no point in you judging ants, there is no point in God judging you. Perhaps at some point our creator cared about his creation, if it was even a conscious act but he doesn't care about you specifically. An indifferent being that created a fundamentally unfair world built on suffering is not a being to worship.

In Christianity, Man is blamed for suffering. If what pains you isn't the action of another human being, if it's something beyond anyone's control - then you must also blame Man. Worst case scenario, it'll be chalked up to God working in mysterious ways which is also your faul, after all, man not being in Eden is also our fault.

The idea that mankind is fundamentally flawed, weak and composed of a great mass of lowly sinners is a good starting point. The problem is that the very material realities of our world and the biological realities of being a human being are two never ending sources of suffering. It's unavoidable.

>The problem is that the very material realities of our world and the biological realities of being a human being are two never ending sources of suffering. It's unavoidable.
This is nothing contrary to the Christian view of the world ("biological realities" which lead to human suffering is just a secular description of "fallen human nature").

Gnosticism is fine and all, but the Brahman pill is greater. There is no self or other, all consciousness is manifestation of the same being. This applies as well to any possible creator being. Hating him is as not-right as hating your fellow man, regardless of their deeds. But obsessive concern with the desires of such a being is also not-right.

Furthermore, concern with the afterlife is not-right. As consciousness embodied in animal form, we are of course concerned with death. But being continues regardless, and if you glimpse the divine reality, you see that your animal fears are unimportant.

In this thread, I will post cartroons drawn by German boomer cartoonist Götz Widenroth and try to explain them as good as I can. Feel free to contribute boomer-humor from your country, or from Germany or anything else.

On the right, we see a toad. Her hairdo and warts make clear that this toad is supposed to be a caricature of green party politician Claudia Roth. Sign over her head says
>Here hangs the green part. t. a molested child.
The green thing in the toads mouth is a bludgeon. It is labeled "the moral bludgeon". In German "The moral bludgeon" is a figure of speech that symbolises the judgement "x is immoral" applied as an argument. The text at the bottom says

What is he butthurt about? I do not know. To me, his nudes look like a 15 year old horny kid did them. So maybe he is butthurt about not getting laid, or about his own inability to get perpsective and proportion right, despite trying for decades. But I do not think he is aware of the second part.

From the synoptic gospels it's pretty clear that Jesus is subordinate to God.

"So He said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God." Matt 19:17

"but to sit on My right hand and on My left is not Mine to give, but it is for those for whom it is prepared by My Father.” Matt 20:23

"Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done." Luke 22:42

Where then did the idea that Jesus is God come from? He never said it, although he let his disciples worship him, but even so, as the Son of God ("Then those who were in the boat came and worshiped Him, saying, “Truly You are the Son of God.”" Matt 14:33). It seems at most he was the Son of God.

It mostly was constructed over time as theologists dealed with what to make of Father, Son, Holy Spirit and their relation to God.
I'm not aware if there was any practical or somewhat logical need for this development. To me it seems more likely that the trinity became the dominant view in a more profane way, such as followers of theologist teaching it simply gaining power within the church.

>In 321, Arius was denounced by a synod at Alexandria for teaching a heterodox view of the relationship of Jesus to God the Father. Because Arius and his followers had great influence in the schools of Alexandria—counterparts to modern universities or seminaries—their theological views spread, especially in the eastern Mediterranean. By 325, the controversy had become significant enough that the Emperor Constantine called an assembly of bishops, the First Council of Nicaea, which condemned Arius's doctrine and formulated the original Nicene Creed of 325.

Also, learned something new:
>According to legendary accounts, debate became so heated that at one point, Arius was struck in the face by Nicholas of Myra, who would later be canonized.

Alright time for some explaining on my end. Jesus is God the son, God is God the father and then the final one is God the holy spirit. Now to identify these three we simply have to use scripture to understand. I will be approaching this from the trinitarian perspective because I think it both aligns significantly with the bible and it makes my position stronger. The truth of the matter is that Jesus is God in the flesh
1 John 4:2
"Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:"
Moreover denying this means that you are considered an antichrist in the Eyes of God
1 John 4:3
"And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world."
So clearly Jesus is Godly in some form or fashion, Now this is where it becomes interesting, God the father is a spirit. That means that he is incorporeal and never changing. The gospels back this up.
John 4:24
"God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth."
This explains why God the father has more authority and power than Jesus because the spirit is stronger and thus more able than the flesh is, Hence why Jesus is considered the Son of God. Now it's time to go back... All the way to Genesis 1 where God makes man within his image.

In retrospect I realize I misinterpreted Matt 19:17. Jesus doesn't deny that he's God, rather he's even hinting to it...
