My suffering was from sleep deprivation but now I'm sleeping from 8pm till 11am and I wake up feeling calm. When I go to out nothing bothers me, no anxiety, no migraines, nobody can anger me, it's like I'm a different person I feel I'm in a dream. Even the one hour naps I've been taking during the day have made me look years younger

Especially since usually you can't know when you have fallen into dream after you closed eyes, it makes almost impossible to determine when you should set wake up call.

I am well within the recommended specs. I've managed to run the game just fine with the highest settings. No frame dropping, everything works otherwise. It's the nonstop completely senseless and often absurd bugs. Things that no amount of low spec or not could possibly account for. The best thing I can come up with is maybe it's chewing the shit out of virtual memory (I don't have a lot of free disk space left) but that still doesn't account for some bugs that are quite simply mystifying. Like right now I'm trying to figure out why telling Neil "give me a second" instead of "let's do it!" made him now give me those two options, and even if I tell him "let's do it!" he still tells me "well whatever you're going to do make it quick". It plays like something that's completely unpatched which shouldn't be the case for an 8 year old game I got off Steam.

The future is also here and I can assure you it's going to be terrible. It will always be the same incompetence, dystopia, and merchants/nobles class scum toadying up to some even more deplorable emperor with a bunch of dumbass thugs roaming around abusing the citizenry. It is exactly the same in every century. I don't like anything that ends up amplifying those powers, and sadly I expect this to do exactly that. Why the fuck would you even want a self driving car to begin with? It is one of the few things left where you're supposed to have at least some privacy and control. I have no idea why the fuck people are fine with handing this over to huge dystopian corporations too.

As I posted, many of this issues was problems of materials and technologies of it's time. At start of Jet engines and jet aviation it had exeact same problems: too much cost, too low resource of engine, eat many fuel. It requred a lot of years to make them profitable. Experiments with it was even in 20s, but first commercial jet planes started developed in 40s, and only in 50s DeHavelant Comet appeared, and it more fail that victory considering how much problems it get and same as supersonic jets at one point was just closed after some crashes. However, because it, Douglas DS8 and Ту-104 and Boeing 707 that came after can avoid most of this initial problems, but even this, 2nd generation of civil jet planes not lived too long to be replaced with much better ones only after 5 years or so.

Not all of problems of supersonic planes are resolved, but they much, much more technologically now. Even 80s projects that no did it because - like Ту-244, was already in many ways more rentable and logical. Only 10 years after first generation, was already created technologies that might make this planes much more sucsessfull. This what I said in previous post - ew electronics, new engines, new materials. If supersonic jet projects of 80s did it, they'd had no this overcomplicated moving nose on landing, have less requrements and less personell for piloting and maintain, have bigger resource and was silent, but in 80s nobody wanted it because marcet and politics and initial dissapointment and hype about wide-body planes.

Emm... I can not agree there since they are equally more interesting. Yes, one big balls of water where instead of bottom is Ice-VII is interesting thing, but such worlds don't mean any life, and also not most unique objects in space.
Solid planets that heaver and bigger than earth is interesting things. There are examples of really heavy giants and this objects is something we absoluetly can not see in our system, where earth is the biggest of the type. Same we can not see some interesting orbits such planets can rotate around their stars.

I really like all conspiracies in theory, they're almost like historical/political fanfiction.

The one I need to look into is Fomenko's New Chronology

>Historians and translators often "assign" different dates and locations to different accounts of the same historical events, creating multiple "phantom copies" of these events. These "phantom copies" are often misdated by centuries or even millennia and end up incorporated into conventional chronology.
>This chronology was largely manufactured by Joseph Justus Scaliger in Opus Novum de emendatione temporum (1583) and Thesaurum temporum (1606), and represents a vast array of dates produced without any justification whatsoever, containing the repeating sequences of dates with shifts equal to multiples of the major cabbalistic numbers 333 and 360. The Jesuit Dionysius Petavius completed this chronology in De Doctrina Temporum, 1627 (v.1) and 1632 (v.2).

Newton's Chronology of Ancient Kingdoms is similar as well.

This is a new one for me, but I've been reading about it and I must say it's pretty ambitious.

Wiki calls it a pseudohistorical theory, but I think it qualifies as a Conspiracy since it posits a truth that the establishment refuses to acknowledge and is therefore complicit in hiding. Either way I like it.
>he's not just some random schizo, but actually also an accomplished mathematician who's made legitimate contributions to advanced geometry maths
That leads to questions like why did he write it and does he even believe it himself? I suppose the easy answer is money, but I don't know. I did find a thesis written at the University of Wollongong(Australia) that approached the psychology of Fomenko and his success.

>Adult Fantasies - 8 Neo-Pathetic Scenes
https://youtu.be/8k24zF--oYg
I wanted to share this album with you guys since quite a time now. I'm not sure how to exactly describe it as it's a mix of a lot of genres but mostly it's electrical music and it's really dark. The timestamps for the songs I'll mention can be found in the video descriprion.
I especially like the song "In Darkness I Dwell", it is ecstatically painful to listen to. The noises usef there remind me of wanting to scream out of despair and madness but not being able to, so all one can is do is grunting like a pig. It also sounds very sexual but not in a sexy way but in a Bataille-esque way: sexuality and sex as the only way to escape the fear of death, also experiencing a personal death everytime during orgasm.
"Daddy Bear" is about the sexual abuse of a girl by her father and has a really gloomy and disturbing atmosphere to it which is really captivating nonetheless, especially because of the singer's voice. I think it's about the ambiguity of father-daughter rape, the girl which tells us the story through the voice of the female singer seems conflicted about what to feel with the father being her loving daddy-bear but also doing things she cannot understand ("I like the games I play with him") and is not allowed to to talk about with her friends.
The last song I'll write a few words about is called "Lederhosen, Zack, Zack!", it's in german and about pederasty. Really bizarre shit.

It's not really a great documentary, but it's the only one on the topic I know of and for those who aren't ones to pick up a big book and prefer to watch a documentary instead (nothing wrong with that mind you, lots of things I'd do the same for) it's a good quick option and it's on a subject you won't often hear about because not many people think of New Mexico when they think of the Civil War and fewer recognise it as one of the most decisive logistical victories of the war, even if in raw scale it was rather small because it crippled Texan military capacity in the Far West and after Glorieta Pass, no major Texan offensive was made in the theatre for the rest of the war. It's also more relevant than you might think because of the Californian gold supply being vital to funding the war for the Union (~1/4 of the cost of the war was covered by it).

Swiss Doku from 1998 about Japanese concept cars.

It's in German, but fuck it, they show hilarious concept cars from Japan, and I would buy them all.
All through the video they say that Japanese cars looked and look bland and only focus on future and function, but maybe that's propaganda to please the German viewers.
If found nearly every car exiting, ultra-futuristic, noble or cute. The cyber feel is with them.

My concerns;
A number a car manufactures have financed new car purchases, though leasing deals
New car purchases are falling
No. of cars sold is artificially high due leasing and finance arrangements.
Millions is being wasted on electric car R&D
International trade tariffs
Diesel Gate
Higher reliability means less need to purchase a new vehicle.
Most new car buyers are boomers and they are dieing off.
Brexit.

While not all separate points, any of those reasons would make me weary, of holding car stocks.

I don't know why you'd want to invest in cars but say minerals is too risky. There is huge demand for it particularly anything electronics related and that is highly unlikely to ever be disrupted. It's just volatile. Meanwhile demand for cars may be almost as good as dentistry in some cases but look at things like 2008 the only reason major car manufacturers are still around is because the government kept them afloat. GM would otherwise be dissolve by now. And your major market is going to be the developing world with things like China, which maybe if it's some recognizable German thing would be a safe bet but I'd imagine they're already heavily developing their own internal markets.

>Rio’s fire chief Colonel Roberto Robaday said the firefighters did not have enough water at first because two hydrants were dry. “The two nearest hydrants had no supplies,” he said. Water trucks were brought in and water used from a nearby lake.

Fucking Brazillians. I am actually mad that they managed to destroy this beautiful museum with a bunch of Portuguese artifacts brought from Portugal by their first Emperor to the ground. The museum was also previously used as the palace of Portuguese kings when they fled to Brazil.

Ukraine's future president is either Tymoshenko, literal Ukrainian speaking pro-Western populist from Western Ukraine, Poroshenko, current president and the guy who was pro-Western before 2014 and whose business was harassed in Russia for his political views by the Russian government, or Vakarchuk, very popular Ukrainian singer from Western Ukraine, son of former minister of education of Ukraine. Little is known about Vakarchuk's political views, but he speaks only Ukrainian and never expressed views supporting Russia. Also, there are two smaller candidates: Gritsenko and Lyashko, both of them are real Russophobes and wouldn't never support Russia.
Boiko ain't popular and he doesn't has a chance of winning popular vote. The first rule of Ukrainian politics in 2018: pro-Russian candidate can't become president. A third part of Ukrainians still like Russia and only 10% of total population vote for the single pro-Russian party in this country.

What is your opinion on Lee Kuan Yew?

I find it interesting how he managed to turn Singapore, a backwards fishing village, into a thriving modern city-state in a single generation through fascism.
>>
No. 9479

That's very fair. He is certainly not above criticism, and I'm also inclined to agree that Singapore being a major port in on the Straits of Johore (already a major shipping route) and smack bang in the middle of a developing economic zone in East Asia following the war meant that it was going to succeed economically either way so long as they didn't do anything incredibly stupid. They didn't necessarily need him, they just needed someone with half a brain which he happened to fit. I don't know if I'm entirely as cynical about his belief in some form of democracy as you make it sound, but I I can also see your point where there is a long period where Singapore is on its feet and he still won't let anybody else 'play on his train-set'.

>>9475
In his early political years, as in the 50s, he made the statement to the effect that fascism was the enemy of Singapore's republic. He also continually pushed for multicultural acceptance and mutual respect for all people and faiths in the country, even the much newer ones like the Christians who he just wanted to stop preaching as hard because it was causing problems, and they did and the problems largely stopped. There was no 'Singaporeans first' policy in the sense of SE Asians getting better treatment than Europeans. He was also very much a proponent of Singapore having a place in a community of nations, not just having some manifest destiny for greatness like Fascist parties tend to proclaim, nor did he prop himself up with a personality cult in the same way. He was relatively popular but there wasn't the same cult that you see cultivated under a Fascist regime. And a lightning bolt isn't an uncommon symbol, go figure. The BUF were also very isolationist in their policy while Lee was all about opening Singapore to the world, their goals were at odds if he was wanting to emulate them.

Plus I'd personally rather not live in a fascist country. You know what's a great fascist country? Saudi Arabia. You'd love it there. State and business concerns are merged under a monarchy, total separation of genders, general ethnic homogeneity, "SJWs" are executed etc.

The PAP was initially very left-wing, until the left wing faction, led by Lim Chin Siong were purged from the party in 1961. They formed the Barisan Sosialis, which were crippled in 1963 by Operation Coldstore.

Also what kind of nonsense is it to consider LKY and the PAP fascist? If it suited Singapore, the PAP would adopt policies regardless of ideology. For instance, the HDB public housing scheme that now houses 90% of the population, or the Certificate of Entitlement scheme which artificially reduces car ownership rates. The economic sector is generally very free-market liberal. The reason why the PAP has been in power for so long is incompetent opposition and subtle but effective control of media and speech.
