Why didn't we have this one yet?
Well, post what you're cooking/eating, discuss food and its culture in general and we may talk about diets as well if you want to.

I'm not a big cook myself but once in a blue moon I like to do it if the process is not too hard or needs too much time. I think the last time I actually cooked something was a south-western inspired casserole, it was extremely fatty because of the massive amount of molten cheese and I felt bad after eating it.
Today I found some older frozen asian vegetables in my freezer and cooked them together with some frozen sugar bean pods and some curry powder, I never thought cooked vegetables without any meat or carbs could taste so well.

I want to try the wagyu meme steak, but it's so expensive. Can it possibly be worth it?
No. 52364
229 kB, 899 × 1258
In my opinion: No. I mean if you have money to burn, then why not, just do it for the lulz, but otherwise all that superexpensive luxury food isn't worth it, at least not for me. My taste buds are simple, and I'd rather get 5 schnitzels with potato salad on 5 consecutive sundays than one super expensive beef steak. Nothing against the beef steak, but at some point the quality difference doesn't justify the steep price. That probably goes for anything in life, so as long as you aren't one of those guys who only strives for the ultimate best things in life I'd say forget it and get a decent burger or something, and enjoy the rest of your money.

>Can it possibly be worth it?
If you're buying a flavor, then no. If you're buying a YOLO experience, then yes. So, don't think of it as a meal- meals are functional, repetitive things. Think of wagyu like a night at the theater- in the good seats. Nice if you can afford it- if it fits into your entertainment budget or whatever- but not something you should dip into savings for.

You know, I'm playing it myself at the moment and the BAR seems to do fuck all to them too. I found the best bet is to weaken them with shotgun (I have the 2 shotgun perks to blow them back and do extra damage) then I take out the police pistol and do VATS headshots.

If I can get a single shot rifle that might be better, because I think I have a perk to increase aim for single shot rifles

The hologram emitter is in the hallway of the medical clinic in plain sight. Same deal with the radios and stuff btw, you can switch them off / shoot them to stop the beeping most of the time, unless they are shielded

I always do that DLC just for the BAR though, it's my favourite gun in all games
No. 52358
Yeah, it's not much of a threat in the hospital, since there is only one. I turned it off myself the first time I went through it simply because I accidentally stumbled upon the emitter, otherwise I wouldn't be bothered to look for it, because the hologram in the hospital is easily avoided. There are way more in the casino itself plus tons of Vera's holograms in the casino's suites; they probably can be avoided too, but it's much easier to turn them off. The ones at the very end of the DLC are indestructible, though, I think.
No. 52360
They don't take extra damage from headshots, which is extra infuriating. I wouldn't complain if they took headshot damage, but without limb damage they're damage sponges.
For context they have 300-600 HP depending on type. A normal deathclaw has ~500. (Though at least their DT is 0, so your 50DPS knives do their max damage allowed by the melee ability and strength you have.)

Well, it's nice to know at least that I will not have to sneak around the holograms eternally.

>I think part of the issue is that people voluntarily do it.
It's a big part of it. It's why any attempt to reform agricultural work in Australia has failed despite being awful conditions. Those who might give a shit about the working conditions (effectively starvation wages in some areas) are scabbed on by those who only give a shit about their working holiday. Covid has actually given us a golden opportunity to organise farm labour in this country. I hope that they can pull it off, but I doubt it. The Australian labour movement is pathetically collaborationist.
No. 52350
Oh and as to why even traditionally (relatively speaking) non-exploited demographics are into it, it's to do with the fact that work insecurity is super high these days. The workforce is super casualised and bosses deliberately undersupply hours to their workers to make them desperate (and easier to exploit). For lots of people, two or more jobs, or just overworking themselves is an insurance policy against the bosses deciding to just cut them out of the loop. I had a period where I had my hours cut to less than 10 a week for no reason other than to rubber band them back above what my old hours were once I was choked out a bit. All legal too, because they sign you on as casual.

Covid has given us a golden opportunity to do a lot of things that we haven't... It's quite concerning.

Maybe, but I think this guy's day job was not casual, plus he mentioned that he had earned over $100,000 that year so it must have been stable(and the boss of the company I worked for who works as a tow truck driver in the day replied that he had made $500,000).

>12 hour shifts are pretty common here now too and worse than that they often have you work both night and day shifts during a week. It's ridiculous and I really don't understand how it is allowed, 12 hour shifts re bad enough but the impact on sleep and health cannot be overlooked
In Germany you are allowed to work 8 hours a day for your employer with allowance to go up to 10 if during a half year your average remains at 8 hours. 12 hours is possible for certain branches and under certain conditions, e. g. they passed a rule lately due to corona crisis. Also the fuckers of the employer lobby and the conservatives have been attacking the 10 hour limit since a couple years already. In Austria they even somewhat succeeded lately in weakening the limitations to 12 hour work. But working 12 hours is still the exceptation from the rule. Also in small companies without an employee council shit like this sometimes might slip.
Funfact: in tsarist Russia 11.5 hours was the official workday limit (which of course often was hard physical labour under worse conditions than nowadays concerning saftey, pay etc. and often not enforced but still).

I noticed that there's been quite a lot of technology related discussions on EC recently, that get washed away in the today thread before getting much discussion. We also have separate threads for hardware, software, technology in general, all of which don't get much activity.
So this thread would unify all of those discussions, and have a common place to talk about computer stuff.

Posted about Happiness, but threda autosage'd so here's v4 of the best thread. Here's the repost:

Watched Happiness (1935), a silent movie about a yokel with this stronk wife who live and work a farm, being bled dry by the classes of old Russia - Priests, kulaks, military, thieves, etc. The movie itself really isn't that good save for its historical context.

Our yokel attempts to perform his own funeral which makes all the parasites who live off his work terrified because if he dies, "Then who will feed Russia?". The clergy accuse the fool of sacrilege - the military takes him and they sentence him to die 7 times in the Carpathians. His strong heroic wife joins a kolkhoz, leads a shock worker bridge and scores a bountiful harvest. The collective farm awards her applause, praise and even sheep. There is still trouble in the kolkhoz as remants of the old classes try to steal from the collective and start acts of sabotage. Alcoholics and 'loafers' are shown to be the reason why the collective isn't doing EVEN better.
The evildoers attempt to steal the grain stockpile, the main character who was demoted to standing guard fails to keep safe the people's grain and those damned reactionary forces steal both the warehouse and our protagonist. In the end, the collective DESTROYS them by shucking melons at them because their harvests were so incredible and bountiful that they could assault food thieves with them. After this victory by the shock workers of our collective farm, the couple goes shopping in a fashionable and well stocked clothes store in a nice and organized city.

> but left may me described just as "garbage"
True, and what fascinates me most is those people that are well aware that it is trash and still continue watching. They are hyped about the next instance of Captain Tightpants, go to the cinema, realize that it is shit, and 3 weeks later they unironically get hyped again for the start of Bragirl vs Evildoers 3.

Normally, I woudn't be one to talk, since I frankly enjoy being entertained by trash myself at times, but the difference seems to be that I am well aware that things are trash, so I'm rarely disappointed. Those guys always seem to expect great movies, and this is byond my comprehension, since even for someone who doesn't follow movies at all, it was obvious that this capeshot stuff at some point was at best just conveyor belt material without any redeeming values.

I was forced to watch a few of them. I remember Deadpool to be half decent, but then there was another I don't even remember the name of, I just remember a very shitty Joker cameo and a hot looking but annoying Harley Quinn-grill. The rest was so bad I can't even remember it, it wasn't even the funny kind of bad, it was just... bad bad.

Videocomics is really pushing it. Even Sin City was a good movie on its own with great artistry. I don't like comic books but recognize once in awhile you get a Spider Jerusalem and while it may not be the next Ulysses by Joyce it still is not at that level of videographic shitpost as capeshit, some pre-wrapped manufactured bubblegum pop, mumblerap, same 80s synths or whatever you can do over and over same thing for literally decades with no talent just to make money. It's like the visual equivalent of a sad cheap handjob in an alley behind a Asian parlor, but even that is too high browed a comparison because you can still create Burroughs or Bukowski-esque art from such filth, but none grow here. It is a giant mat of plastic lawn turf manufactured from old tires and it's giving the children cancer.

Watched Crossroads. It's a pretty good road/music movie about Eugene Martone, a naive guitarist kid who's obsessed with blues and sets to find the lost song of an influential Delta bluesman Robert Johnson, record it and get famous. He finds an old harmonica player Willie Brown who he believes knew Robert Johnson personally, and after some persuasion Willie agrees to teach him the song, but on the condition that Eugene will take him to his home in Mississippi.

The movie is mostly about blues, it has a pretty good soundtrack, and the last guitar duel between Eugene and Steve Vai Jack Butler is epic, but unfortunately it is spoiled quite a bit by Ralph Macchio's (who played Eugene) atrocious acting. Jami Gertz, who played Eugene's love interest Frances, is not particularly good either, but she has much less screentime and she didn't really have to do much apart from being pretty anyway. Still, the film is enjoyable, and people who don't really care much about blues (like myself) will like it.

I would like to have a thread to discuss various types of architecture.
There are lots of oddities out there, and many interesting things to talk about.
I think that I will make some stream-of-consciousness posts.

Earl Young was an American architect who, without formal training, developed his own regional style in the midwestern united states.

Earl used nothing but local materials, and his homes look very romantically medieval, but with modern fixtures. They have been called "mushroom homes", or "hobbit homes".

>Do Germans have a thing for kitsch

These are not typical buildings, but Hundertwasser. I mean Germans like kitsch if you consider what the average German equivalent of home depot is selling as decor articles as kitsch and I would say it is. Houses are here are either ugly functional or just pale. You have some exceptions though ofc. Older 19th century houses or some modern stuff can be quite nice, it's about the shapes here more or less.

>Walking inside of it feels a bit like being at a techno/goa festival imo.
In addition to the mosaic tile designs, I can see his famous uneven floors in the pic. ("an uneven floor is a melody to the feet" t.Hundertwasser). They should have made an artistic ATM for that location. The grey one seems a bit out of place.
It's strange that such a colorful place is used for a common thing like changing trains. Strange, but in a way also right. Art shouldn't be restricted to museum walls. Put it out there, where it can become part of daily life. Look at the Maishima Incineration Plant(Japan). They process garbage, but that doesn't mean the building can't have an incredible Hundertwasser exterior. I read that they built that as part of a failed bid to win the 2008 Olympics. They wanted to make the city more beautiful. They didn't win the right to host the Games, but now they have a garbage dump that's so cool it attracts tourists:

Do you like (or liked) Lego, Ernst? I used to be a huge fan since 1994, when dad brought me my first set — 8818 Dune Buggy — from Germany, and up until 1999, when I bought my last set — 8204 Sky Flier. Then I started losing interest somewhat because of electronic entertainment like videogames becoming more popular, then Lego started to produce licensed themes like Star Wars which I've seen as betrayal and selling-out, and then Lego went into a direction which killed my interesting in it completely by introducing Bionicle, which didn't really fit either System or Technic (and I don't care what some people say, I still don't consider Bionicle a subtheme of Technic). So, I gave all my Lego to my cousin and for around twenty years I pretty much forgot about it. But a couple of months ago I went to my aunt's and found out that my cousin (who also got bored with Lego a couple of years after me) started getting back into Lego: he bought several new Technic sets (42093 Chevrolet Corvette, 42107 Ducati Panigale plus several smaller ones), and they impressed me quite a bit. Nostalgia hit me hard, and I started checking out new Lego myself out of curiosity. I found out that there are actually some new themes that are of interest to me, like Creator, Ideas and Architecture, and finally I gave in and bought this 31109 Pirate Ship.

So, Ernst, share your Lego stories if you have any, meanwhile I'll be building my ship and maybe post some photos. If this threda wouldn't be of interest to you, I'll just let it die and won't post about Lego anymore.

Never liked pull-backs much, although back then they were among Technic sets (Racers came later) and rather than being a self-contained part you had to make the motor yourself with some gears and rubber thread. Modern pull-back motors are actually kinda cool, I think my cousin has one.

After I broke my right collarbone, I was forced to become left-handed for a while. My coordination was bad, ofc, and my sister bought me these Lego sets to practice. They're from the Star Wars: Microfighters series. I got pretty good using lefty, but after the sling came off those skills weren't needed and so they faded away.

Kinda jealous of your ingenuity for adding functionality to Legos. These Star Wars sets come with pre-made spring-loaded pieces, so they shoot bricks without my having to do anything.

  1. Love these latticed windows. Always wanted them when I was a kid, but I never got any. Now I got 'em.
  2. Mast is made of small Technic axles and is a bit thin for my taste. It also feels weak, it seems that one careless movement can break it. At least those ropes keep it steady somewhat.
  3. Sails are made of separate plates. It looks pretty weird, especially if you're familiar with cloth sails from Pirate theme sets, but I guess the point of these plates is to use them for alternative builds of this set (skull island and tavern).
  4. The figurehead. It's supposed to be a mermaid, I believe, with red parts being hair, yellow parts being skin, green parts being tail and blue parts being her bra à la Disney's Ariel.
>Star Wars: Microfighters
Damn, Lego made a fuckton of Star Wars ships of all possible sizes. I guess these are among the smaller ones (the only ones that are smaller are from Advent Calendars, but those are, like, ten pieces each), are more play-oriented and aimed at children, while those fuckhuge UCS ships are exhibition-oriented. And, despite my dislike for Lego Star Wars (see OP post), I still wouldn't mind getting my hands on one of those UCS sets, especially TIE Fighter or AT-AT.
