I can’t fucking focus on my studies. Instead I’m wasting time on reading shit like “The Small Mirror of Sumerian Literature”.
I sometimes flip through the notes but otherwise I don’t feel like I’m doing well. I feel like my entire motivation to engage with modern mandarin was butchered by that exam. It shouldn’t be that way but I’m still apathetic towards it.
Don’t know how I could recover from this.

Dad returned from a business trip again. I asked if he could bring me back a Buddha statue and he did. I put it on the shelf.

It snowed today and it didn’t melt. Fucking sucks because I was hoping for an early spring.
Started registering for courses.
One year I didn’t register for one due to clashes in my schedule, and that would have been some queer history bullshit. Dodged that bullett, this year it’s about Imre Kertész, the writer who got the Nobel in literature for a Holocaust novel.
Hopefully it won’t be mind numbingly boring.

Glad I don't have a gf or hemorrhoids or a decreasing libido. I go into work and get out of work when I feel like it, and no one sees any issue with it. I'm not sick in any way and will go out and cycle tomorrow. Or maybe I'll put in some hours, or maybe both.

Computer games or boring and suck. No matter what year. As soon as you get the mechanics, they become boring grinding. Computer games are best to be avoided. I've done so for the past 15 years, and I never looked back.

Video games thread - my turn edition.

In a daring dash, a friendly AI secured valuable assets deep within the borderlands.
A unit without supply needs is powerful for deep commando operations, but this border region is yet to be reinforced against the close by Panzermark.

The mistake to declare an applied science director to early was made, still a lot of regular research to be done before they can do anything at all.
The budget cuts were mostly taken like a champ.

The OOB for now excluding militia consist of the usual MG regiments for overall needs, but this time 8 regiments of regular infantry were raised too, they are planned to be expanded into offensive battalions to better assist armored assaults.
Larger militia formations proof useful to quickly grow new borderzones when disbanded.

Playing Sims 3 again. Now it's a custom-made Pelkonen family in Roaring Heights, Vitagast is a military man (has been an astronaut for weeks already) and Mayra is a scientist - a good set of staple jobs to get money and still have time to raise some side skills and to grow kids. The kids are 6 by now - Mikkel, Morgana, Dragana, Viryava, Toivo and Vindelov, the last two still being toddlers. Ousting inferior races from the town is in progress. :3

The house has been built in a mostly ad hoc fashion and is essentially a temporary utilitarian building anyway - I'm going to rebuild everything from scratch on the same lot as soon as I have enough funds. With the main hall featuring portraits of the two founders hanging on the walls.

>Ru cannot outproduce lel
Is Europe willing to put it's economy on a war footing? Germany, for example, has not even placed orders to the manufacturers to replace the 10 PZH 2000 they have to Ukraine. For now, there has not been a production increase. Not even plans for a production increase. Only an emptying of depots. Rheinmetall can not produce additional 100s of tanks a year. They can not even refurbish 40 a year.

>Ukraine will win anyway
Ukraine would have to clear the Russians building by building and trench by trench. They would take hundreds of thousands or even millions of casualties.

Putin had to defend democracy against misinformation campaign, including far-right conspiracy theories about so-called "cooperative Ozero", which have been debunked multiple times by independent fact-checkers from Nashi and Internet Research Agency.

I disagree with this article. All the animals in top-10 should belong to Ice Age or earlier (including dinosaurs).

Dead languages
Most of them evolved into something different with time (like Latin), some were a dead end (like Coptic).
What I miss:
> Anatoli Zhuravlyov [ru] suggested that a separate, now extinct, branch of North Slavic languages once existed, different from both South, West, and East Slavic. The dialect formerly spoken in the vicinity of Novgorod (the Old Novgorod dialect) contains several Proto-Slavic archaisms that did not survive in any other Slavic language, and may be considered a remnant of an ancient North Slavic branch.

Old Man of the Mountain, a granite formation in New Hampshire which resembled a human face. It was an iconic image which inspired Native American legends and grew to symbolize the State itself. Erosion was inevitable, but nevertheless efforts were made to reinforce the structure with concrete and steel. Alas, the old man collapsed in 2003 and now lives only in memory...and on currency...and in a million photographs...and on T-shirts...

Played a bit with summarization model. Executed it on tabs which I keep in browser for weeks but don't bother to read. And on different esoteric articles from radical newspapers. Works mediocre but sometimes useful. Often selects few sentences from first or last paragraph but also can produce reworked text.

tldr: I have an awful personal problem a man in his 30s shouldn't have and need to work out what to do in my predicament because I'm a flawed human being and I'm acting like a brat. I have a girlfriend I've been dating for nearly 2 months - not long but she has ended up absolutely infatuated with me and tried to push things very fast. So I've hesitated because rationally, it makes sense to continue - "give her a chance" I think to myself as I'm getting old and I need to grow up and break a cycle of endless conquests.

I read Naked Lunch and On the Road. I think Naked Lunch would be more interesting if I knew more about American history and culture.
Kerouac on the other hand I simply don't like. It's too much.

Fun edgy stuff, probably won't stop being edgy for another several decades. Also, one of the few gay authors who is not an obnoxious homo, doesn't wallows in his faggotry and just either presents it matter-of-factly or constructs some entertaining plot out of it — that is, one of the few gay authors who might be interesting for non-gay and non-SJW people.

>Kerouac
Only read On the Road, and it was pretty forgettable and felt overrated. I read it in Russian, though, so maybe if I re-read it in English, I will have a better impression.

I've only read Naked Lunch and I very much liked it back then but I really do love the movie which is more of a mix of the book and autobiographical material but it creates such a dense atmosphere and is quite a ride.

I guess it was overrated by the same generation and social circle American bohemia of the 50s to which the author and his characters belonged. For them this book is kinda very relatable, so nostalgia and so on. And then everyone else just accepted their assessment under weight of their authority.

>>90197
Yes, "Naked lunch" movie is really epic. Dropped the book at the start though.
"Videodrome" by same director is cool too btw.
