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.

You have my sympathies. I mentioned further up in this thread my encounter with an aggressive blackbird, but those are pretty small. I can only imagine what it's like to have something almost as big as a goose flying at you.

Were you guys born and raised in major cities or something? I just can't wrap my head around feeling intimidated by anything like that or why people run away from geese. The only birds that can actually really hurt are roosters and even then just because their spurs are great at hurting your kicking leg. The funniest thing is these kinds of creatures are all way more likely to attack you when you show fear. The only thing that tends to meet your aggression head on is roosters. Because they're right cunts is what they are.

It's not than I'm afraid of a bird attack doing physical damage; short of an Alfred Hitchcock scenario, I know that most of them are fairly harmless. That being said, I still have this instinct to run withdraw whenever I sense a potential pecking or scratching. Tbh, I would have the same reaction if a squirrel started sprinting at me. There is just a lot of uncertainty in that kind of situation. If a bird flies aggressively in my direction, I have no idea how far it's going to go. All things considered, in moments like that a dignified retreat serves the interest of all parties.

> Tbh, I would have the same reaction if a squirrel started sprinting at me.
Okay yeah you are definitely city folk. I even was going to make a joke about that exact scenario but felt it was being too mean, innaccurate, and demeaning. Like how I visited someone in a major city in the last couple years and was told point blank how I should be careful about them and how they act weird and frightened around even small dogs. I thought my friend was joking at first.

Like what the fucking hell? But then again I probably get the same reactions from city folks when I'm clearly apprehensive being around a metro.

> If a bird flies aggressively in my direction, I have no idea how far it's going to go. All things considered, in moments like that a dignified retreat serves the interest of all parties.
Well it probably does I guess, but then again I guess this shit could probably cause a lot of people to back down too. I normally have a fight instinct rather than flight. Truth be told I am surprised this shit hasn't gotten me in more trouble than it has in the past. The only thing I ever actually was intimidated by was seeing what looked like a large blackbear's eyes glowing in the brush about 8-10 feet from me while walking someone's dogs at night, and that was mostly just because well I was alone at night with a damn bear and for some obscure reason only had a tiny 3inch pocket knife at the time rather than a large hunting knife like I usually carried back then. But even then, first of all a knife wouldn't fucking do anything in that situation but be a psychological prosthetic dick to calm your nerves while actually only pissing off the bear if you had to use it, and secondly, all it's going to do is piss off the bear if you try to use it. Plus it's just a black bear I'm pretty sure, and those things are docile as hell.

It's not just that though. It's the fact that he's very good at it while also coming across as being fairly unique, to the point that all this could easily be mistaken as concept art for a vidya.

The sad thing though is knowing that so many peoples' talent would end up being wasted on dumb shit like taking commissions to draw retarded anime moe shit or slashfic just to make rent money.

I never noticed how the game shifts focus to drop based weapons by the late game.
Basically instead of mining/collecting resources or looting structures, you rely on drops from enemies/fishing. At least for the "mage class".
I managed to skip most of the mining during the second part of the game simply by opening crates I've fished pre-hardmode.

Not sure how I'm going to take out the final boss yet. I still need better weapons for that, so I'll try out a few more events to see what type of drops I'll get. It's weird how there is still content in this game I've never seen. Never fought the ocean boss, and I never tried to take on the Frost moon event. So I'm gonna try those, most likely, just to see the loot.
Though I'm gonna build an arena on another map for that, because my "main" world is full, and there is no room for a giant mob farm that can beat an event like the Frost Moon.

I have not even left what I think is the Russian equivalent of Shady Sands called Odnoye and already I exorcised a demon in the name of the Central Committee for plaguing a poor proletarian and cursed it as a counterrevolutionary to inhabit the body of a pig, among other happenings. I rate this game 8/Blyad so far. It's pretty clearly an incredibly indie game done on unity that starts out pretty slow, slow enough you start thinking it's going to suck (kinda like a lot of people first trying Fallout probably) with an incredibly formulaic dialogue system that's pretty much identical for every town person along with what seems to me very blatantly used stock assets, but once you really start talking to people and doing things while interacting with the world it very rapidly starts getting interesting while showing its unique charm.

I've not even started exploring the world map and already I would recommend this game. A pity I'm completely exhausted and have to get up at 6am to start getting ready for work again.

Had a surprisingly good fight against the DCS AI tonight. Fought a Tomcat 1v1 in a Tiger II. Went with the restriction of not using my heaters, and I dodged both of theirs during the merge and the fight eventually ended in a game of chicken where the power of small size really showed itself. I'm not as well gunned as an F-14, but they were a big target that I could land rounds on while they had to keep their nose on a much smaller location to hit me even with a vulcan.

M39 cannons are rad as hell though, even if they aren't as good as an air-to-air gun as the M61

With the news of billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s arrest and the probable implication of many other rich and powerful Americans, I’m reminded of why I’ve always found the decades of these rumors completely believable—the “Dutroux incident” in Belgium.
Marc Dutroux is a career criminal, multiple murderer, and serial rapist/pedophile who was convicted of abducting and sexually assaulting several young girls in the 1980s, but was released after only 3 years in prison.
He went on to reoffend almost immediately, keeping captured teenagers in his basement until they starved to death and even killing one of his own business associates.
The notable aspects of this case that make it unusual in comparison to the average serial-killer-type tale are Dutroux’s high-level connections to the upper tiers of Belgian society and the notable “incompetence” involved with the investigation.
For example, at one point, police actually inspected Dutroux’s home, HEARD the screaming of the starving young women in his basement, and appeared to decide they had simply “come from elsewhere.”
They also seized videotapes that depicted Dutroux building the cell in his basement, but never even viewed the tapes, and then RETURNED them.
It is certain that children died due to this unforgivable police work, but it’s also quite likely that this was something more sinister than mere incompetence.
Dutroux, it transpired during trial, was involved with pedophile/trafficking rings which implicated vast swathes of the Belgian govt., police, and civil service.

Fallen Angels is great for sure. Would also recommend Rebels of the Neon God to you, it has similar Asian metropolis aesthetics, but it's a bit more bleak.

So I ended up watching this Chinese animated movie. It's a dark comedy with a bunch of more or less odd characters and storylines around a stolen bag of money interspersing and coming together at the end (à la Snatch and similar movies).
The stiff animation style takes some getting used to but it's well executed with many detailed stills. The almost complete lack of music (except for a randomly inserted surreal sequence depicting the dreams of some side characters) underlines the austerity of the Chinese underclass that makes up most of the cast. The story is nothing too ambitious, but the characters are quite interesting and the comically philosophical dialogues feel very on point. Sadly, the movie ends somewhat abruptly at just a bit over 1hr of runtime.

True, especially old ones. Newer independent stuff that is more acclaimed with cinephile people already can often be found tho. At least a year or two back when alluc.ee somehow a stream search egine was still open, I found many films from film lists. There exists a follow up but it did not had Tokyo Fist e.g.

I watched Rebels of the Neon God btw. on a russian streaming page without any subs tho, but they weren't that necessary anyway. A good film about the lives of big city dwellers.

Currently reading Philip Roth's Everyman. It's my first encounter with Philip Roth and generally, I am usually not too much into contemporary American writers but it seems he is a big shot over there.

Anyway, the book so far is entertaining. It starts with the funeral of some everyday Joe, son of lower middleclass Jewish family in. Brooklyn. In the following chapters it tells the story of his life somehow alongside his sickness developing and other important life events.

I am half way through so far, so maybe there's going to be a turning point on which I am missing out yet but from what I've by now I guess the idea of the author was to portray that beauty and triviality often lie close buy just paying attention to the details. It also deals a lot with inter-personal relationships, family issues, all that sort of stuff that certainly wouldn't make it for a blockbuster movie script but are what probably matters most to us since life basically consists of that most of the time.

Also, the book is well written and overall pleasent to read. I have had read rather 'heavy' literature recently so I am very pleased to read something that wouldn't hit me right in the feels or make me drown in thoughts and despair for a change.

After quite a struggle I finally forced my way through the Aeneid.
Didn't like it as much as Homer, but I guess that was to be expected. The language felt less poetic, though that might be in part the fault of the translation I read. Other than that it definitely had some memorable characters and interactions but just didn't feel as epic & the pandering to Augustus was a bit too blatant at times.
But now that I read the first few cantos of the Divine Comedy, which I really like so far for it flows much better due to the different verse structure, I really appreciate having the background knowledge about Virgil's work.

I just started reading this and it struck me how the Chinese look upon the Mao-era as a kind of lost age where "the people" meant something. An era before decadent hyper-capitalism and its harsh morality that swamped everything after Tienanmen.

It is an idea you rarely encounter reading western descriptions of China that focus on the success story. Maybe it is just rose-tinting from young and old because I think every country has a similar nostalgia for the time period.

Read The Night Land by William Hope Hodgson. Since it was recommended by Lovecraft and since I was already familiar with The House on the Borderland, I got the impression that it will be a horror story of some sorts. It turned out to be an adventure story with blotches of romance here and there, set in a post-apocalyptic future, and, unfortunately, this story is a pretty bad one.

It starts with a framing device narrated in ye olde Englishe by a unnamed nobleman who falls in love with his cousin. She reciprocates and they get married, but unfortunately their happiness doesn't last long as she soon dies. We then get sent to a veeeery far grimdark future where the Sun went out and swathes of spooky monsters roam the lands. The narration passes to another unnamed man who is a descendant and reincarnation of the nobleman. He lives in a huge pyramid made of metal together with millions of last surviving humans. He is a telepathic seer of sorts, and one day he manages to communicate with a girl from another, smaller pyramid, and he immediately understands that she is a reincarnation of his former love. They spend days chatting about this and that, but soon the danger befalls the inhabitants of the lesser pyramid, as their Earth-Current (a magic energy of sorts that can supply force barriers, water pumps and lifts and also vanquish evil) dries out. So, after an epic fail of a rescue attempt by some hotheads from the big pyramid, our strong, brave and totally not Mary-Sueish hero decides to venture forth alone to succour his beloved one. The rest of the book is a boring and overly long description of his trip to the damsel in distress and back, with occasional fights against monsters, lovey-dovey moments with The One Maid (except when the hero slaps or even whips her for her "naughtiness" and "perverseness") and kindergarten-level musings about Love and Humanity. That makes the framing story kinda pointless. Well, I can presume that it was used to explain love at first conversation between The Hero and The Maid, but why the hell the author kept narrating the entirety of the book in that obnoxious olde-speake, I, in verity, scarce to wot. So, anyway, when our happy sadomasochistic couple almost got back to the big pyramid, things suddenly take a darker turn, and I was hoping for a tragic ending, but it gets overridden by a happy one in a most stupid, deus ex machina kinda way. What a huge letdown.

lol absolutely fucking not. I'd almost rather just toss my whole fucking PC onto a bonfire. That is not a fix. I would rather spend another fucking $60-100 on a comparable nVidia than ever have to suffer that kind of fucking horseshit.

It isn't even about the built in spyware, which keep in mind I have electric tape over both sides of my shitty NSA phone and I'm probably just going to upgrade to a cheap flip phone the next time because I fucking hate those things. So already while that by itself should be a deal breaker, fucking this webm related right here
Do you seriously think I am to put up with that shit? I have posted here multiple times in the past about how my single greatest fear about eventually bricking my PC from some hardware failure is be forced to get a new one which even on craigslist is going to give me a win10 system and how my great fear is how much a pain in the ass it will be to rip out that fucking system by the root and completely formating my entire fucking drive just to make sure there is as little trace of it as possible anywhere at all and having to do a complete reinstall of a possibly pirated copy of Windows 7 on it.

I think I need to emphasis this: if I got a brand new $2,000 gaming PC on it and it had Windows 10 I'm formating the entire fucking drive.

and yet I don't find out until I get home that absolutely everything I feared about it not working wasn't a problem, and instead the entire problem is because I actually can't get the drivers for it on my win8 system. Hence the tangent into it becoming software discussion from hardware, because my hardware issue turned into a software one in which case I have no idea how to get a workaround to make the damn thing usable on my system except I did find this https://drivers.softpedia.com/get/GRAPHICS-BOARD/AMD/AMD-Radeon-Adrenalin-Edition-Graphics-Driver-17-12-1-for-Windows-7-64-bit.shtml being given as a possible solution that supposedly running a win7 driver package on my win8 was supposed to workwhich btw is what that fucking Russian garbage apparently meant by "8.1 drivers" it's just win7 drivers that malware linked me to without specifying which one and I found that specific link in an obscure thread on hardware forum although I haven't tried that specific one because the last time I was screwing around with different win7 drivers it kept giving me kernel security check errors and rebooting.
