Old thread is kill, this is the new Radio Ernstiwan thread. I'm starting right away with the 1905 show, going live RIGHT NOW (with pre-music)

Share your musical taste and your seductive voice (no homo) with your fellow Ernsts, and help making this chan not only enojoyable for the eyes and mind, but also for the ears. As always, there are no restrictions whatsoever in what to stream. Just share what you like, every streamer has his own ideas and style, and it only makes the radio more interesting.

The radio is available here: http://radio.ernstchan.xyz:8000/

Connection data for the public stream: see pic 3. See also the beautifully crafted pic 4 and the infos on the radio page itself for additional details. Don't hesitate to ask if there's anything on your mind, there are lots of people around who have working streaming setups running and will be glad to help you out. You can see at the top of EC (below the banner) if a stream is on.

Happy listening/streaming!

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.)

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.
No. 46247
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.
>and at least in edition I played added voice acting that for me changed personality of main hero

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.

The same thing happens with most of my pictures, especially when using my phone. Luckily, I can compensate for that by photographing very large wading birds :D.

How do you guys eat all of those mushrooms? I mean, what dishes do you make? I rarely eat mushrooms, and when I do it's only on pizza.
No. 46219
Different types mushroms beter for different things. Some goes fried with potato, others "salted" and then ready for different types of salads and cold snacks, other for long keeping may be dried up and then used for different mushroom soups.
It depends of mushroom types. German ernst have different species of mushrooms from what I can see. Mushrooms that look like that in my regions is bad poison ones for example.

i imagine far up north the season is a bit different than here due to different climate, different environment and different prevalent mushroom species? if i'm not mistaken there's leccinum versipelle, boletus edulis and cantharellus cibariu in your basket though, which are common here as well. the latter two are actually my favourite mushrooms besides agaricus campestris, which you can see in the pic above. agaricus campestris is fairly easy to identify and their inedible/poisonous variants are quite rare, have a different color on the stem and smell different. however, people who never have picked mushrooms before and go for them may mistake them with amanita phalloides and die within a couple days. the poison quickly dissolves the liver.

i just like to cook them with butter, onions, herbs, season with salt & pepper and eat it together with a loaf of bread, grilled potatoes or an omelett. mushrooms can be put into the freezer, but i prefer to eat them fresh right after i've picked them.

I'm about to be a 25 year old virgin NEET incel manchild and all I do is go on imageboards and play vidya. I also drink alot. I've been doing this since my highschool graduation, around 6 years now. My dad has been working to support my NEET lifestyle and I haven't given back, but I want to. So, how do I reclaim my life and get out of this? Furthermore, I think I'm too stupid to perform in real life now (as in work-related activities) due to my sedentary lifestyle's harmful effects on my brain.

Yeah also this which is more frustrating listening to dumbass fucking boomers who sincerely act like and believe it's not too late to start a family or go to college at age 55--it is.

I don't know wtf is wrong with that generation. And it's not just partisan either. I've dealt with boomers on the further ends of both sides and with few exceptions almost entirely being at the real extremes of hippies who rejected society entirely to live innawoods, they're all the same. It's little wonder to me for example that both Democrats and Republicans acted as they did in response to the pandemic. It makes me think a whole generation given everything on a platter since birth is character warping and makes them delusional.

There is such a thing as too late. If you forget this mentally, your body will remind you. It is by your late 20s you'll be forcefully reminded you can't do things like drink the way you used to.

I agree that certain (biological, age) limits exist, but going to college at 55 because you have nothing better to do and don't want to qualify for a job but for educational sake, why not? I know I was often annoyed by old people and what they had to say in seminars (there are exceptions though) but I think it is good that they can do this in their old age.

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.

So the other week (I forget how long ago sometime summer) I saw some guy riding what appeared to be a beat up single wheel, not sure what to call it. Self propelled mini skateboard thing with a foot pad in front and a foot pad behind the single barrel looking wheel. The guy was dressed in somekind of lower class flourescent vest too probably going to his bydlo job. Really what I meant about rundown tech tier.

I mention this because
in case you didn't hear a guy in a jetpack was fucking with our flights in LA.

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.

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.

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.
