I wasn't sure were to post this as it didn't really fit into the today or documentary thread so I just started my own.
I've seen a fair few people post blogs on somewhat unrelated threads, and I thought it was a good idea if people just posted on this thread instead of unrelated threads.
Anyway, here is an interesting blogpost about environmental hypocrisy: https://www.ecosophia.net/the-flight-from-nature

I agree that 90% of the site is stupid shit but sometimes the literal resident autist Mr. Greer gives pretty scathing critiques of so-called modern "environmentalists".

For anyone interested, the attached pdf is a copy of the first article which this one references.

I don't know what I expected. Guess it's time to try that national e-prescription system.
Though at least I bought a packet of ink cartridges for my pen on the way home, so that's a plus.

I had three espressos today, and I'm still on the verge of falling asleep for some God-forsaken reason.
Despite this I made good progress and read through a bunch of essays and articles from a book.

During one of my empty periods I helped a girl prepare for a grammar test. She said she had trouble formulating definitions when asked on a test. (As in, e.g. "Define what slang/communication/language/code means")
The common approach by teachers is to say "It's common sense", but I told her to forget common sense and roleplay a bit instead.
"Imagine you're writing an entry for a dictionary. Your goal is to write a sentence that can explain a term to even a layman."

I came across tiktok compilation videos in youtube.

They are perfect for doing nothing and turning your brain off. The frequent citation like with any meme makes it a pinnacle of postmodern culture. I oftentimes can "relate" even tho in the end there is a distance to it that cannot be denied. In some cases I I'm more than 10 years older than these people. Still I give them credit for their everyday creativity it has nothing to do with art born out of saturated boredom and fast telecommunication devices. The music played is also odd to me, yet fits perfectly. I don't engage in that cultural practice like these people do, in the end I feel foreign and a bit sad that my youth is definitely over, yet the fuck it's sedimentation and parallel sprawling: Any minute you can easily related with an 18 years old problems, since you have gone thru that phase not everyone's phase is equal but the similarities do it, structures make it possible, on the other hand you can behave like a teenage dickhead, or be stubborn like a child. The teenage problems of actually realizing how depressive and absurd the world is never goes away, it only multiplied, yet the perspective I take is different. There is the years of experience you have in advance to them, which make the distance again.

I wish healthy adults would stop panicking about 2019-nCoV as if it isn’t just a shittier SARS
No. 37321
Most people aren't panicking enough and I think you entirely fail to appreciate the cascade effects this thing can have by turning into a full blown pandemic. We're talking massive amounts of economic disruption, completely clogged healthcare systems, large scale societal disruption if and when it begins catching on more fully. I think that the other really big thing fueling our deepest concerns is the fact that China is not known for being transparent and the fact that it just locked down multiple cities and regions in a way that would make absolutely no sense unless it was massively worse than what we're being told. So, yeah, even if at worst it kills one out of every 25 people, if it manages to spread enough to infect millions of people globally that's still a lot of dead people and a lot of disruption. Already the markets dipped because of this. The other thing I think you're failing to appreciate is if it mutates further, though regardless if it stays just as with present lethality the news has only gotten worse and worse every day.
t. Armchair epidemiologist
it should also be noted that many people in healthcare actually are extremely worried about this one and aren't making a big deal of voicing that because anyone in healthcare understands that sometimes starting a panic can do more damage than any disease.

Ernstchan is uniquely suited to hosting a "zine", or rather, a journal. The slow pace of the board, with focus on well thought, rational posts, combined with the knowledgeable and intelligent posters here, makes ernstchan ideal as a source of quality content for this sort of endeavour.

As such, I am looking for submissions for this journal. Submissions can be as long or as short as you wish, and can be on any topic of your choice. Artwork, poetry, fiction, puzzles, how to guides, recipes etc etc are also highly encouraged.

I hope to publish the first edition next month, and after that, once every two months, with special editions in between (for example, Christmas).

Submissions can be sent to --


I have not chosen a name for the journal at all. I encourage you to send suggested names to me at the email above. Please also note that I will not immediately respond to emails, but will acknowledge reciept of submissions in due course.

It stopped being good in 2014 but it literally died at the start of 2018 physically and was pretty much spiritually and mentally dead by the end of 2017.

Except most of those people literally weren't bernds. Iran is a good example of someone who was a bernd as well as India both of whom would fit right in here with like Kazkhstan and old game Russia among others. Most of those people moved on and it was replaced by more 4channers until KC itself was basically nothing but a clone of it in 2016. Is France still even France if less than 90% of people are even still French? The answer is obviously no and that is what happened. You would think people most supposedly vocal about stopping rapefugees, preservation of culture, and the great replacement would not ironically embody those very concepts themselves but that is exactly what 4kanker did and in 2016 bernds had become a minority in their own lands.

I think there's also francis bacon influences in the skill icon artwork.

Anyway, I did a color painting from imagination. You can tell because the forms are very basic. But on another hand I could go ham on colors.

So apparently DoD is saying that they anticipate climate change being so extreme, so soon, as to have catastrophic consequences within the next 20 years up to and including the total collapse of the US military in its ability to respond to threats and collapse of US infrastructure.

This worries me especially because I've already had multiple blackouts this year. Has anyone else experienced this? And no I don't live in California either

Nah, it's already dying down quite a bit. Judging by the top reads on Wikipedia for example, the death of that American basketball player interests people more.
It's laughable. People tell me

>Australia is on fire
>WW3 almost happened
>The Coronavirus is here

Media works with attention, it's a market logic more or less and most people follow what is presented to them and forget fast because of all the info only slightly true so, people will get reminded of things at times again. That's what you get for engaging in day-to-day politics. The info rates we have today are huge and the process is further accelerated thanks to computer technology.
But tbh, back then people were concerned about newspapers and the cursoriness and speed of info digestion that came with them.

>writer of something that does indeed sound schlocky

Holy christ. Well, I mean...
No I was going to say something but that guy just needs better taste all around. Ironically the only thing I'm not taking issue with here is the rapper. The painter and the "poet" if you can even call him that
Well let's just say we beg to differ widely and dramatically on anything even approximating American cultural contributions. Pollack isn't terrible just not very good imho. I suppose an argument can be made for abstract composition at least but Ginsburg? Seriously? He sounds like the worst sort of mediocre intellect pretentious twat college freshman with a head full of nothing. But then again I widely rail against the whole beat generation generally, and particularly despise Ginsburg on a similar level as Warhol, although at least to his credit Warhol wasnt a known pedo to boot.

Sorry for being so negative. I just wish someone like that would come up with anyone else I mean hell what about Plath? Why Ginsburg of all people?

I highly doubt that Spengler could give you much of value. Did he have any special knowledge about the country?

I highly recommend the blog Scholar's Stage. It's written by an academic who is fluent in Chinese, including the classical written language, and he's written a ton about modern China and long term trends in Chinese thought and culture. I find blog backlogs from highly learned individuals like this to often be more valuable on books, and always to be very useful in building your own reading list. The guy behind Scholar's Stage in particular is very widely read and has recommended years' worth of reading on various subjects, derived from his own personal reading. And of course, Chinese culture and history are a very large part of such recommendations.

Basically it's a grotesque scene from a concentration-camp. The "subhuman", Jewish professor (doctor of literature) is more connected to German culture than an "aryan" soldier that can't name a single of the German greats.

The tragedy is the fact that KHG wasn't malicious at all, he was just jovially trying to chat up a conversation with the guy, but accidentally made the guard so angry that it killed him out of sheer anger and jealousy because KHG's little lecture made him feel inferior to a supposed-inferior.

Todays winner is "The White Mandingos - The Ghetto Is Tryna Kill Me".
A very humoristic concept album that tells the story of a black man named Tyrone White who finds some success with his rock band. I found it really cheap and picked it up because i like some of the frontmans solo stuff but i must say personally i'm not the biggest fan of this album (it's okay, just not great).

In the poll it got replaced by "Faith No More - King for a Day… Fool for a Lifetime" and also added "The Psycho Realm - The Psycho Realm"

The poll for next sunday can be found here: https://poll.fm/10496359

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.

Some Australian Magpies mimicing sirens. The first video is the one which has been in the news these past few days, because he's mimicing a fire truck. The others are similar examples of this behavior, where the birds are mimicing police sirens and car alarms.

They're very cool birds, but also very territorial. They can guard the same small patch of land for decades.

Have you noticed any activity near the roosting box yet?

I saw a barred owl this morning. He(?) was perched at the top of a tree, before being chased off by crows. Luckily, he decided to fly in my direction and landed on a limb about 50 feet from the sidewalk. He remained there for several minutes, sporadically hooting, which allowed me to get a good look at him(well, as good as you can hope for under a tree canopy in the early dawn light). They're surprisingly large birds, and I could clearly see him jutting his head and neck out as he vocalized. Unfortunately I didn't have a camera, but was able to capture some audio. There were at least two barred owls in the area, as I could hear one call in the distance, before this owl would respond. The attached mp3 is my best sample of this. You can also hear those crows, and what I'm pretty sure is a wren.

I kind of feel sad not posting in this thread. I love birds and love to observe them, but with my phone and skills I can't het hood photo of them. For example right in front of my window Crows made a Stash in snow on tree and reguallry visiting it. But I don't go close to window or try to remove tulle in fear of scare them, so I can't make proper photo.
Or for example now, on road to an airport which is quite far from city in forest I seen this bird. I seen them in city once year or two ago, this is clearly not Fieldfare since it bigger, fattier and have different colors overall, but it also like to eat Sorbus berries since it what he did while I tried to photo him on mine crappy Samsung galaxy s4 camera. Can't get better pic of it, thought he or she obviously was not scared of me - but snow there was too deep and there was -30C with humidity and wind so yea, don't wanted to spend much time here with naked hands holding phone.

No I mean those stories literally never happened or were tabloidized. Like the polish man finds his wife in a brothel didn't happen. The cuts off own head one is apparently a misrepresentation of some Polish guys were drinking and got into a drunken pissing match until finally the one bet the other he wasnt manly enough to cut off his friend's head. The house explosion apparently did happen but funnily enough the airport one actually is real apparently and is even more amusing than the headline
>Alone and unable to communicate with others – "I'm Poland," he reportedly told those who inquired about his wellbeing – Parzelski did his best to make himself comfortable.
