>she has some olive looking skin, someone told me she is half Iranian and the other half is Goblina admixture
>I often wonder why she would remotely fly drones against her own kind, but then I remember that the American knows no loyalty
>I smile and assure her I will visit Jimmy soon and to tell him I was asking for him
>she looks at me with crazy eyes, I can't remember her name, I always called her Goblina in my head
>I start the engine of the car, the shitty diesel engine with 300,000km on it drowns out whatever she is saying

Pagan Altar - Mythical & Magical

This album might be one of the greatest Heavy Metal albums ever recorded. Honestly, I don't think I could conjure enough words of praise to heap on this album, so I'll leave it to the fine folks at Metal-Archives to do the job for me:
https://www.metal-archives.com/reviews/Pagan_Altar/Mythical_%26_Magical/139953/

One highlight for me is, ironically, one of the album's less heavier moments "The Crowman". The song perfectly blends Folk and Rock in between all those infectious bluesy licks that transcends time itself and inspires nostalgia for music from eras gone by. And to think this was recorded and released in 2006:

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.

Joke threda
Hello, I will post here some jokes I collected over the years way back on KC /int/.
Feel free to add your own.
There are way more than fit in one post, but I won't necessarily be able to post regularly.

Jerusalem's highest rabbi is on an official trip in England. On one
morning, he wakes up really early. It is Jom Kippur. He steps on the
balcony and sees the hotel's golf course.
He thinks "It's so early, nobody will see me". He grabs his golf gear
and steps on the green.
Up in heaven, St. Peter says to god "Do you see what the highest rabbi
of Jerusalem is doing? On Jom Kippur? Do you not want to punish him for
it?"
God nods. The rabbi drives off and hits hole in one, a perfectly rare
occurrence.
St. Peter: "I don't understand - you wanted to punish him!"
God: "I have. Who can he tell?"

To Cheka runs worried person
>My parrot has disappeared
>Well than you need to contact local Police
>Excuse me i know who to contact, i just wanted to officially report that i dont share opinion with parrot

>Soivet union scientists reasoning how life will be in year 2000 SSR.
>One suddenly talks up! every family will have reactive jetplane
>Why would every family need jet plane? rest surprised
>Now just imagine, you living in Jurmala, but suddenly you get to know that in Volgograd shops there has appeared sousage in stores

Little Fritz comes home after school. "Dad, we got our essays about the Greatest Accomplishments of the DDR back! Mine was the best, I got a 4!"
>(German rating system is from 1 to 6, with 1 being best and 6 being worst).
Fritz's father is surprised. "A 4? That was the best essay? What about the others?"
Fritz: "I don't know, they're not back from the interrogation yet"

-When the first Soviet election took place?
-When God put Eve in front of the Adam and said "choose your wife"

After Catalonia getting a lot of Spanish immigration in the sixties, in the eighties (with democracy and autonomy for catalonia), the catalan govt made a campaign in order to increase good vibes and brotherhood, among other things, which had the slogan "we are six million", which was Catalonia's population at the time.
Joke: our president Pujol visited China, and going down the plane, he told to the welcoming delegation:
"we are six million!"
And the Chinese delegate answered back:
"oh! And in which hotel do you stay?"

An old man wants to park his bike right next to the entrance of the Hungarian Parliament building.
Some policemen rush to him:
  • What are you even thinking, old man, you can't park your bike here, the Soviet delegation is arriving immediately!
  • Oh, no problem, officers! I locked it good.

Brezhnev has a meeting with Sophia Loren. He says to her "I am willing to grant you any wish."
"Please, allow anyone who wishes to leave the Soviet Union."
"Sophia, you sly little minx, you just want to be alone with me."

Countryside life in Europe
How is the life in the countryside in Europe?
i have been in different imageboards, like Krautchan, Kohlchan, Ylilauta and 4chan /int/ in his early days, but i have almost never seen a thread made by a western european about life as a farmer or in the countryside at least.
Do these people have special benefits from their goverments for pursuing such a life style there? or they are impoverished as for example farmers in the Americas?
Here life in the farm is mostly for people who are either too ignorant to have a job in the city, or people with lot of money who work in the farm just for fun. My family falls in the second category, thought when my parents were young they definitely were in the first.

Hello, I am a new in this place and I didn't find any real estate/housing thread so I'm creating one here. I will post some thoughts and updates of my journey on finally acquiring my own place. You can see this thread as my blog and use it as your own blog too.

I have a dream to live in my own place, so I dont rent a flat and saving up money. Since flats are too overpriced and I have a piece of land in the city, I'm planning to build a house. There is already a one bulding on that piece of land - a garage, but its not legalized yet. The piece of land is not connected to electicity(and a whole bystreet) but I believe that its a solvable issue. 2 weeks ago I found an architect who will make a house plan for me. He asked me to send him pictures of houses which I like and make a draft plan of the floors. Pic related are houses that I liked the most. I want a one-storey house with an attic and a semi-basement. If everything goes right, I can have a house plan with the needed documents and construction permission till the next Spring.

Weight loss/Fitness goals diary
We had a thread on old EC and there were a handful of people trying to lose weight this summer.

Have you made any more progress? Anyone starting to try who wasn't back then?

What are your methods and routines? What is your diet like?

I really wish that German vegetarian poster from KC that yelled at people for avoiding carbs was here. That was always really fun.

Personally, I think my goal of 19 bmi was a bad idea. I don't think there's much health benefit of being that compared to 21 or 22. I weigh what I did at 13 years old now. I'm really happy about that but while it looks good for my stomach it looks worse in other places. I'm probably going to stop here.

I'm most interested in the Finn who had a goal he wanted to reach by July.

The Ernstchan Institute for Infrastructure Studies & Networked Modes of Existence
Alright. I will open a thread on infrastructure. Generally this one can be used to think about infrastructure, admire its aesthetic potential and beyond this ponder the network existence and its different modalities that we may lead in this world that we inhabit right now.
These introductory words need further elaboration, ideally, it will be done over the course of this thread.

Paul N. Edwards wrote a general article on infrastructure in the early 2000s. In that he cited the U.S. President’s Commission on Critical Infrastructure Protection from 1996 that shall be our gateway to what infrastructure is commonly referred to

• transportation
• oil and gas production and storage energy production in general would be more suitable these days with renewables being a thing
• water supply
• emergency services
• government services
• banking and finance
• electrical power
• information and communications

I like to add
• raw materials, the EU has a list for such critical elements that are used for batteries or chip production as an example.

A key concept for all infrastructure according to Edwards is flow. Flow also provides the base for its aesthetic potential. That is: seamless operation has an aesthetic quality.

>Not only hardware but organizations, socially communicated background knowledge, general acceptance and reliance, and near-ubiquitous accessibility are required for a system to be an infrastructure in the sense I am using here

says Edwards, he does remark though, that this is a western understanding and that concrete infrastructure of the west cannot be universalized throughout the world in its conception and actual operation.

Edwards has more to say about infrastructure but I will stop now.

The article in question is (the book can be found on libgen):
Paul N. Edwards. Infrastructure and Modernity: Force, Time, and Social Organization
in the History of Sociotechnical Systems, in: Misa, Brey, Feenberg (ed.), Modernity and Technology, MIT, Cambridge/London, pp. 185-227.

Radio Ernstiwan birthday party streaming festival 2.9. - 4.9.
Soon it will be that time again, Ernst: Radio Ernstiwan will celebrate its 3rd birthday on the 3rd of September, and of course we will have a streaming festival on that occasion. Since this will be a weekend the obvious date for the festival is Friday 2nd to Sunday 4th of September. The propaganda ministry already created this cheerful advertising, I can already feel the party starting just by looking at it. Put your stream announcements in the thread, the more flexible you are concerning date and duration, the more easier the planning process will be. For now I plan with the following assumptions:

Please note that the schedule is UTC+2 #justGermanThings

- One streaming channel, no two parallel streams. If this will not result in sufficient slots it can be changed during planning.
- The Weekly Album Stream is locked for saturday, and if Ernstalbum happens it will again be broadcast on sunday evening.
- No planning for graveyard shift and early morning/noon, unless someone insists. I think early afternoon is a good time to start on Saturday/Sunday.
- Bernd will be invited to participate, just like the last time
- Base duration for a stream 2 hours. Of course you can also have more if possible, but priority is that everyone gets a slot, so if you have announced a longer stream and the schedule is tightly packed, then expect me to nag at you if you can shorten your stream.
- If someone else wants to do the laudatio on Friday feel free. If no one volunteers I'll do it again. wieder.

I'm currently reading a dating advice book because I want to get off the dating ride and back into a healthy relationship. This time without ending up in a relationship with a woman where either I'm not interested or she's not interested. As cringe as it is to even be reading such a book it gave me a thought exercise to do in narrowing down the kind of partner you might want to attract and where they might be found.

You might enjoy taking a stab at it and seeing what you end up with.

>What I recommend to every man before he even begins talking to women is to sit down for a while and ask himself some questions:

>A. What do you value in a woman? Honesty? Affection? Intelligence? Curiosity? Similar interests? Education?
>B. Women with the traits that you value, where do they frequent? Where are you most likely to find them?
>C. What do you enjoy doing most? Do you love to read/write? Do you play music? Do you enjoy sports and competitions? What are events or organizations that you can become involved in that explore your hobbies?

For me, I got.

A. A charming personality, the kind of woman who lights up a room and you feel energised just talking to her.

B. Perhaps an acting troupe or evening art class. Clown college?

C. Fug, I'm antisocial. I do like to read, listen to music, discuss international relations and go on walks but I like to be alone. I guess I should pick up a hobby or 12.

At first nothing bothered with the feeder, but slowly a number of birds began to take notice.

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.

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.

LEGO
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.

My 23 year old nephew developed severe epilepsy after getting vaxxed because they took his rights away until he was vaxxed and boosted. My neighbour's niece who is 8 years old now has leukemia after getting the vaxx. My coworker collapsed after getting his booster and spent the last 10 weeks in hospital. My other coworker's father dropped dead after getting his booster .... the list goes on and on

My facebook feed is full of obituaries to people in the locality dropping dead, or famous musicians, football players, local celebs etc. just dropping dead

I've never seen such a wave of illness in my life and I've been around 40 years. The die-off has begun I think

Ernstalbum v2
Only a few months left until the next radio birthday party, it's time to start wörkenings on Ernstalbum v2. Ernst just finished his first song, and he has a few more up his sleeve. The huge success of out first album last year raised the expectations of our loyal fans, so give them something to cheer on!

I do not say that you HAVE to participate, but if you don't I will dab on /int/ the whole show while presenting the album (see pic 3 for details). Anything goes which roughly fits the desription "song", it doesn't matter if it's serious or audio shitposting, just do whatever you want. If all goes well the album will be published during a live broadcast at our next birthday festival (likely the weekend Sep 2-4). You can post your songs in the thread or send them to me via mail (ernstiwan at protonmail ch - if you don't want to spoil anyone before the festival). In any case: Post if you have something ready even if you don't post the song itself in order to raise peer pressure :DD

Secret Services
Should they be abolished? They wield immense power and are basically unelected antidemocratic power structures, which outlive elected officials. There is no control, they majorly fuck up all the time, e.g. in the case of terrorism either by looking away, getting caught with their pants down or even supporting them, like the NSU in Germany or Al Qaida in the US.

Then there are the military intelligence services, you always hear about the CIA, NSA, Mossad, BND or whatever, but basically every country has three branches of intelligence services: foreign, domestic and militaric. And theres almost never any good OSINT on them. Which makes you start to think what they (yeah) are doing.

If people would know what happens beyond the tidbits, which sometimes flow to the surface, I think there would be constant rioting for months. There is no way that they are compatible with a transparent democracy.

Small Things Thread
Ernst, let's have a thread about the small things that happen or that you do that you still feel like sharing.
Small-scale celebration of the seemingly insignificant is the name of the game here.

Penis joges allowed but looked down upon EC style

I'll start just to give an example:

When I empty a glass of jam there usually is this feeling of not wanting to waste the scraps that I can't get out with a spoon. A small annoyance, certainly.
But I keep those around for a day or two until the next time I make myself a Müsli, then I pour milk in the mostly-empty glass of jam, shake it wildly and pour the sweetened concoction over my Müsli instead of just fresh milk.

A small annoyance turned into a small joy. I bet I have a smug grin while doing it, too, but I've never done it infront of a mirror.

Do you have a reputation, accurate or not, that influences how people perceive and approach you?

I seem to be seen as a liar or bullshitter. My own mother didn't believe me when I told her where to find the pepper in the kitchen. Granted, it was not my kitchen, but one I've been using often over the past six years.

Also, people who meet me the first time (or even years later) online, often react with "really?", no matter what kind of mundane things I post.

Inb4 multiple posts of "really"

Both of these things hit me especially hard, since my memory is just about the only thing in my brain that works the way it's supposed to.

Quality internet sites
What websites does Ernst frequent other than EC?

I used to spend a lot of time on different topic related internet forums and websites but then i got a slave to chans somewhere around 2006 or 2007 and i left the other internet behind.

Nowadays are Nu-EC, Youtube, Wikipedia and, as a guilty pleasure of mine, Reddit the only sites i regularely visit (next to some porn sites)

I have no idea where the hate for Reddit comes from by the way, if you ignore the comments underneath the content there are some pretty fun subreddits.

Attention whores.
(I know that this thread might look like it's made by an immature specimen that does not know how humanity works, which is absolutely true.)
I want to ask Ernst about attention seekers and about the ways to effectively deal with them.
First i wanted to describe what sort of person i usually call an attention whore.
An attention whore:
>Talks a lot about meaningless stuff and himself.
>Will start an argument over nothing.
>Will gaslight you and play a victim.
>Will troll with stupidity and shitposts.
>Surrounds himself with weak-minded people who are somehow impressed with his behavior.
>Extremely materialistic and superficial.
>Has masochistic tendencies.
Now the last point i would like to elaborate on. An attention seeker LOVES when someone beats the crap out of him. He likes being a victim, he likes being insulted, assaulted, he literally enjoys it. Such a person will commit a mass shooting or a suicide or both, with one sole goal: to get noticed.
He's extremely primitive and lacks any common sense. He's highly reactive to the outside stimuli, very emotional and predictable. An ultimate normie with a flaccid ego that controls his every action.

Now here is the question Ernst. How do you defeat a person that will go out his way to get noticed?
If you talk to him - you lose.
If you beat the shit out of him - you lose.
If you kill him - you lose.
If you try to ignore him - he will think that you are weak and will double down on his efforts up until you are basically forced to do one of the 3 options mentioned above.

Case in point: LGBT alphabet crowd, incels, feminists, various journalists, etc etc. All these people share the same qualities of an attention seekers.

Is the solution for this - just being always in control and being a stone cold robot?
How do you deal with them?

The Opioid Crisis
The day finally came this week. I just found out today that my junkie "cousin" fatally OD'ed two days ago. I put "cousin" in quotes because my mother was adopted. My mother knew exactly where she stood as her adoptive parents were quick to tell her, "Blood is thicker than water." After hearing the refrain throughout much of your life, you grow bitter and disgusted, but frankly, we're both thankful to God we share not one drop of blood with these people

My cousin was a malignant tumor given a human shape. Because of this woman's terrible childhood, grandpa pitied her endlessly. Even as recently as a year ago, he kept saying, "She's just a big kid," because she would always be the 5-year-old girl he'd stare at on his refrigerator door. I don't know what inspired her to take drugs, but I can tell you that she indeed suffered the worst possible circumstances growing up. Her father committed suicide before she was six months old. Her mother is a consummate grifter who shacks up with the lowest of low lives.

My cousin's teenage obsession with Kurt Cobain partly explains her inclination towards hard drugs, but she grew up with an endless stream of pain. She either decided early on that her prospects in life would be minimal (her mother did frequently berate her) or perhaps she simply had no interest in being productive, and what better way to explore new sensations than continually ingest newer and newer highs. Getting high simultaneously helped alleviate the pain of her childhood trauma and kept her close in spirit to the celebrities she idolized. Her grandpa would unconditionally support her, so the incentive to grow up simply didn't exist. In the end, grandpa viewed his granddaughter as a child who desperately needed to be nurtured.

In the beginning, grandpa afforded my cousin a mobile home near some of her school friends. Despite the town being economically destitute, she still wanted to stay in touch with the same circle of shitheads. Meanwhile, grandpa routinely paid for her various expenses, from utilities, phone plan to even toiletries, all while she received welfare. She also solicited under false pretenses so he'd give her beer and drug money for her and her friends to party.

After years of grandpa's support, she caused him absolute grief, from stealing from friends, hanging out with petty criminals and dope fiends, getting in trouble with the law and ruining his credit by running up debt on his cards, forcing him to lie to the credit card company (he claimed ID theft) to protect her.

Within the past five years or so, my cousin became deeply addicted to heroin and started doing anything she could to feed her habit, including stealing some of his antiques, stealing his social security checks and forging signatures to cash them, stealing from friends and even getting one of her dope fiend friend to screech and harass him into giving up family heirlooms, most notably grandma's ring. After allegedly three hours of verbal abuse, he finally caved in and surrendered the ring. She and dope fiend stole his car to pawn the ring and used the proceeds to buy drugs. One time, a dealer even came by grandpa's house to collect an owed debt.

After enough abuse, grandpa finally mustered the courage to call the cops and had his precious heroin addict put in rehab for a month. After she got out, she immediately went back to her old tricks, doing drugs, stealing from everyone she knew and doing everything to keep her heroin supply steady. She even found newer ways to solicit money from grandpa, such as buying pet food for her starving dog, which she would then return for heroin money. As this all happened, she shoplifted, leading to her getting caught one time and pulling a "I DINDU NUFFIN!" After enough grief, he called the cops, had her arrested and got a restraining order.

A month went by without a word from my cousin, but being full of hard luck stories, she came back into his life and continued the drug routine. In that time, he befriended an empathetic cop. One night, she came home after having stole his car to make a drug run, banging on the door and cursing noisily. The cop greeted and promptly arrested her. As she sat in jail, she wrote him a letter, demanding he rescind the restraining order, effectively leading to law enforcement revoking her bail.

She was then sentenced to 6 months (it took two months for the case to go anywhere because her lawyer kept forum shopping) and was finally free around Christmas time. Since that time, she was living in the old bastard's house and continued to live her days partying and stealing from friends.

Then, her biological mother moved in and the conditions of grandpa's house deteriorated rapidly. Prior to OD'ing fatally, she had previously OD'd at a friend's house which put her in court-ordered rehab for three months. In a move that surprised everyone, grandpa finally pressed charges for stealing which put her in jail for about a month. She fatally OD'ed within one week of getting out.

Frankly, I don't have it in me to gravedance. All I can say is what a waste of life.

So tell me, how do you feel about the opioid crisis? Do you know anyone in your life affected by it?

The Digital Age. The Present, Future and History of Media and Technology in Culture and Society.
This thread is dedicated to discussions and findings about the present, future and history of (digital) media and technology. They can concern culture, society, politics and philosophy. I know we have a science thread and a computer thread, but this thread is decicated to the humanities side of the issue, though this thread should not exclude (computer) science.

I will make my updates here regulary I hope, so this is a personal thread which should accompany my personal studies, but you are invited to post here as well. I will mainly review articles or books, perhaps post personal experience we often discussed imageboards here, which can boil down board culture, but also social composition, so that would be a topic, but also hope to link thoughts together in the future.

More or less: What are the consequences of a digital age in various domains, where are we heading and where do we/it came from?

The thread could contain questions like:

[*]What is the digital, what does this notion imply?
[*]What is media?
[*]The dawning of the notion of networks
[*]Cybernetics and systems theory/science and other disciplinces that fostered the digital age
[*]The role and influence of mathematics.
[*]How did photography and radio waves affect cultures and philosophy?
[*] What's the history of phones and cell phones byeonf its technocial developement? This thread is not so much concerned with inventors but inventions and wider implications and consequences.
[*]How do media and technology affect human being? How does it affect the unsconscious, how does it shape the way we handle feelings and what does it to emotions, if we understand emotions as a cultural realm of expressions for feelings, for instance?
[*]What aesthetics are set up thanks to media and technology?
[*]How are media and technology organizing culture and society?
[*]How do media and technology shape the way we percieve the world?
[*] What implications does algorithmic automation have? How do algorithms shape culture and society, personal experience?
[*]What role do private enterprises play? How are states affected by the digital age?
[*]The impact of the digitality and computation on the environment.
[*]The hardware infrastructure and its social and political implications, also what do infrastructures and their asesthetics tell us?
[*]Design and design practices, be it software or other
[*]The role of art in the age of digitality, what are its possebilities, are thre new possebilities?

This thread is opened in a spirit of the Cyberntic Culture Research Unit. We don't have to deal with demons, numerology and escaping being human, but to let it flow theoretically, we've progressed a few decades since the internet came into being, the future of then is now, it's a different time, thus different handling. This is not about royal science (pure academia) but para academic exploration of a technological and media condition that occupes many pores of our life and the domains of the social, cultural, political and the personal.

Talking of the digital age is quite assuming, but I think we can all agree that it plays a significant part in our modes of existence.

Esoteric Politics
I don't want to disgrace the suffering today thread with more of this.

---
I'll start by translating selected passages of PCTP-MRPP's official line on its participation in the bourgeois electoral sham known as the 2022 Portuguese Legislative Elections.

>[...] The Party has a political line on (the question of) participating or not participating in bourgeois elections, being that this is not the Party's main task. Our agitation, propaganda and political struggle is not stored for the electoral season and does not require elections to be carried out!
>This participation has as primary goal the strengthening of the Party, in terms of organization, whose configuration is dependent on political circumstances and situation. This participation is also a fight for the survival of the Party. And this is how it must be seen.
>This is the meaning of presenting a candidacy in a moment of intense atacks and struggles against all sorts of opportunists and traitors who have only, as we all can see, the only and main purpose the criminalization, fragmentation and destruction of the Party, appealing constantly to desertion, undermining and denying the study, the ideological struggle, and the organized political intervention -- Marxism is our strategy, as so brilliantly defended comrade Arnaldo Matos -- wanting, even still, to impose from their armchairs and the comfort of their home, their points of view, believing, perhaps that their escape gives them the status of uncompromised and independent ideologues.

>[...] It is clear that the Party will one day not participate in elections, by orders of the bourgeoisie which, is already becoming apparent. Let them then, play that role and everything will become more clear!
>The Party has decided it will not criminalize itself, nor transform into a dilettante group of pseudo-intellectuals during a moment in which the capitalist mode of production presents all the symptons of agony, being that these early elections, after the implosion of the bourgeois parliament in an autophagic process, is not unnoticed, namely in this significance in the recomposition of political alliances between all the different bourgeois sectors.
Translator's note: different bourgeois sectors here refers to the political spectrum of parties that don't include PCTP-MRPP.

I hope to see what they'll post when this vanguard of the masses manages to mobilize up to 0,4% of the electorate. The wreckers whose only and, therefore, main is the criminalization of the last bastion of pure Marxism in Portugal will try their hardest to sabotage the elections too. I'm glad the politburo remains vigilant.
I have borrowed their revolutionary electoral posters to adorn EC in all of their blinding glory.

EC might be one of the last polite places left on the internet, it might be one of the last places where you can disagree with someone without the namecalling, meme replies or gaslighting that goes on.

You ever hear of dead internet theory? It's the idea that the internet basically died around 2012 and what we have now is basically a dead internet populated by bots and autoresponses, and only a handful of real people left on it.

EC is one of the few places that feels actually alive in a dead internet even though it is slow and often quiet. I often don't agree with a lot of opinions here be they in the today thread or Ukraine war thread but at the same time it feels like I'm reading things written by actual people, instead of bots going through the motions

So you guys should cherish EC, because it is a candle in the dark

https://www.youtube.com/c/PatrickLancasterNewsToday/videos

Freelance frontline journalist, reporting from the russian side.

He actually goes to the people, talking to them and reporting. He is crowdfunded, so consider donating. The guy is a fucking hero!

What all the refugees from Mariupol he interviews confirm is that AZOV is shooting at civilians and army that try to surrender, that they are holding the civilians hostage and that many of the shootings of buildings were done by AZOV.

That came partially through in a german broadcast too. Back then from Kiev. The German journalist was telling the people how Russians and Ukrainians were shooting at each other and the Ukrainians kept hitting residential buildings every now and then. But he kept explaining that away with their not up to standard weapons.

I don't think so anymore. I think that's strategy to play the victim and get more weapons.

Ernst brevity club
Since Ernsts in general seem to have problems to condense complex thoughts into a more digestible, i.e. concise and precise form, let us try in this thread to hone the skill of laconic rhetorics.
In order to practice, we will try to produce short texts by abiding one of the following rules:

>Two sentences with a strict storytelling element, can be dialogue.
>One sentence with a strict storytelling element, i.e. no aphorisms. Also, no long clause/accesory sentence constructions.
>Haiku with the classic 5-7-5 pattern
>F-Scheme, follow a 8-5-3 pattern, thus warranting a progressively stronger condensation

The topic is free, it can be serious, but it can also be funny. Please refrain from Dadaism though, as it would be directly antithetical to the task.
Since I made up these rules, I will also start with some shitty examples; I am not really creative at the moment:

"Why can you not be more like your brother?", my mom used to say. I never liked visiting his grave.

I watched a nude lady posing for a photographer, which I enjoyed, right until I drove my bike into a ditch (true story btw)

Helmut and Tjark?
I read a thread that most germans on int over at kc are not real germans.

There's one who was a total rager at me and hence why i'm banned. I think he knows Helmut.

Another possible feature of this guy is he is obsessed with trashing Drachenlord. Why this interests me is Kohlchan began a campaign to call me schizo which succeeded. This is where Zioshit, turkroaches and Balkanfags also played their part.

Who is this aggresively lying german on kc? The impulse to aggresively slander opposition is very strong with this guy, and he's obsessed with establishing that and he gets away with it in the exact same way the state gets away with collaborating against Drachenlord. Why this pdece of shit is never attacked doesn't make sense.

A sidekick mod is someone called Tjark who appears to be a US-Chinese asian in Ukraine.

One "German" known is apparently a half Brit who is bald and is never banned, but tries to run the int site. It could be the same guy.

Pic is included to show the escalation. Now he's trying to say, after the network across these sites kept up attacks constantly against me, he is blaming the targets of his shitdumping mods and minions, should be removed from the internet.

As always this little shitbastard slides under everyone's radar with his secret campaign/agenda.

He either is a scholz guy, but Helmut is now speculated to be a Russian.

Is there some kind of Brit-Russian thing going on with US-Chinese and zioshit on the side on kc?

COVID-19 in Russia in one song
Semyon Skepakov, a famous satirical singer, has created a new music video about vaccination against COVID-19. Absolutely priceless, as far as the political situation and public opinions in Russia go.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qmX6Hmrwd0E

Hello, brethren,
Hello, sistren.
I want to tell you:
The life isn't easy now.
Take me, for example:
I'm guarding the doors
In our ugly
City hall of Pyatigorsk, (Hey!)

Overall everything is fine,
Though I'm a bit fed up with it,
I've got a nice salary,
Even if it's very small,
In general, I'm satisfied
And shouldn't complain -
Am I a woman of some kind
Or maybe a homosexual? (Knock on wood!)

In the morning I go to work,
Drinking beer in the evening,
On Saturdays I go to the bathouse,
Have sex once a week, (A man!)
Ass on a sofa,
Football on TV, (Good!)
Putin is a cool guy,
Biden is full of shit. (Sure!)

A nice pattern,
No need to strain yourself,
But here, friends,
Comes one problem.
For a whole year
I'm trying to find an answer:
Should I take this damned vaccine
Or not...
Or not... (No, sure one should take it.)
Or not... (One totally should!)
Or not... (But the side effects it has!..)
Or not... (Here's my opinion: one should either take it...)
Or not...

My colleague had a jab
And fell sick at once, (Got it?)
Another didn't have it
And fell sick as well.
But the one who didn't have it
Is in an ICU now, (Here you are!)
And the one who had it
Has gone bald in a single day.

The mayor passed by and sternly
Told me "get your shot!"
And the vice mayor silently
Whispered to me "don't!"
My mother-in-law told me
That my dick will stop working,
Then I may have the jab,
It won't get any fucking worse.

But here my neighbor scientist
Showed me a video
Where because of the vaccine
A rabbit shits blood, (Wow!)
And told me: "The vaccine
Is a poison for an individual."
And then a week later
He died from COVID.

Overall, after processing
All the facts and opinions,
No more doubts
Have remained.
The final answer has been found! (What?)
One must get vaccinated,
One surely must,
Everyone definitely must get vaccinated...
Or not. (Tanya! You should do it!)
Or not...

Do it! Do it!
One surely should do it!
Definitely, surely everyone must get vaccinated right away, (One can win an apartment!)
Or not...
Do it! Do it!
Putin himself has done it!
He told himself that he'd done it,
If he told that then it means he did it,
Surely he did it,
Or not... (He did of course.)
Or not... (If he told so then he did it.)
Or not... (But it was shown on TV!)
Or not... (The very moment of taking the jab hasn't been shown.)
Or not... (What reasons does he have to lie?)

All in all, I'd likely
Split in two,
If it weren't for our
Resolute authorities.
They suddenly got angry
And told: Enough!
Your irresponsibility
Won't work anymore.

From now on
You, unvaccinated beasts,
Won't be allowed into bars, restaurants
And even into fucking shops.
Overall, we're tired of this nonsence,
And since the New Year we are introducing QR codes,
Definitely introducing QR codes for everybody...
...
Or not. (Fuck!)
Or not...

Doing it, doing it,
100% sure about doing it,
Without pampering anyone we'll do it just like that,
Introducing QR codes...
Or not.

Doing it, doing it,
Doing it without any preludes,
Coming to you from behind, bending you and bringing in
The QR codes, (They force everyone into a digital concentration camp!)
Or not... (What do you fucking mean "not"? They told it would be done!)
Or not... (How come it isn't, Gosduma has already voted for it!)
Or not... (Tanya, Gosduma has already voted for it!)
Or not... (Then why the fuck I've bought it?)
Or not... (You fools, it's going to be recognized even in Australia!)
Or not... (I'm baptized!)
(Tanya!)
(Get off me!)
Or not... (I'm leaving you!)
Or not... (Sobyanin has been vaccinated three times!)
(Fuck...)

Ernstchan Cinema
Hello. I am happy to announce that in collaboration with Radio Ernstiwan, we are launching Ernstchan Cinema. A streaming service by Ernst, for Ernst. Anyone will be able to transmit a movie, or a videogame directly to the stream, and viewers can go to the webpage and watch. Advanced technology allows the stream to be completely real time even with high ping. The stream will be available on the radio website at http://radio.ernstchan.xyz/videoview.php . The video box will activate when a stream is on.
For obvious safety reasons, we can't simply give out the streaming address publicly, so for now, we will give out access to the stream on a case by case basis. Here's how it works: you can leave a post in this thread, reserving a timeslot in UTC / GMT+0 (up to 2 hours in length), what you want to stream, and some contact address (email or something). Alternatively, you still leave your post (so others can see), and send a request to the contacts in the second post. We will serve you a temporary link that will let you stream through OBS. The link will expire after the given timeslot, so be punctual. Later, we will be implementing a script that will allow you to automatically receive links for a given timeslot.

We shall inaugurate Ernstchan Cinema with its very first stream on Saturday 23rd, right after the weekly album stream (around 19-20 UTC). October isn't over yet, so it is fitting that we should stream some horror movies. Look forward to Trick 'r Treat (2007) and Return Of The Living Dead (1985). Don't miss it!!!1

Phone security - border entry
Ernst is traveling to the USA soon. USA can confiscate your phone upon border entry and demand the pass code. Once they are at this stage, they have access to your whole life.

Ernst is not worried about child pornography and similar, because he does not do this shit. Worst case, they find a random photo of someone smoking a joint. I also used my phone once to download a torrent.

Of course, once border patrol has your phone, it is deemed compromised. But Ernst is no IT security geek. Ernst wants only the right level of protection.

Ernst was thinking of the following:

  • Cloud share services: Use only in combination with 2FA
  • Activate 2FA on Google (Ernst uses Android phone)
  • Lock messenger apps like Signal or Telegram
  • Delete all files on WhatsApp and messages before entering
  • Delete Outlook app
  • Install an App that shows all locally stored photos and documents so that Ernst can check for marijuana photos.

Is Ernst doing it correctly? Did Ernst miss something? Even if border patrol is recovering login and pass phrases, it is useless because of 2FA.

Does Ernst realise that Mezcal and Tequila is going to be the next whisky? Its becoming increasingly expensive and there are so much more brands now.

Informative and/or scientific magazines/channels/shows/whatever/
Are there any good magazines or similar things you follow?

I got the idea because i'm currently reading this and i like the idea:

https://journalofcontroversialideas.org/volumes_issues/1

Wikipedia says:
"The Journal of Controversial Ideas is a cross-disciplinary, peer-reviewed academic journal that aims to allow academics to publish using pseudonyms if they request it.[1][2] Established in 2018 by philosophers Francesca Minerva, Jeff McMahan, and Peter Singer, the journal began accepting submissions on 20 April 2020.[3] According to McMahan, the journal is needed because of the fear among academics about publishing articles that support certain contentious positions.[4] Minerva came up with the idea after experiencing death threats and difficulty finding employment because of an article she wrote on the ethics of newborn infanticide."

I hope it's not getting too /pol/ tier, but for now i stay interested.

Also, i (unironically) read the High Times every now and then since i'm 14 or so. They actually have some really interesting articles in there every now and then but i feel like it lost a lot of quality over the last 10 or so years.
I would definitely recommend a look into the "High Times Greats" category on their website.

I also like the National Geographic.
Was subscribed to it but quit. Maybe i should re-subscribe someday.

Share your musical taste and your seductive voice (no homo) with your fellow Ernsts, and help making this chan not only enojoyable for the eyes and mind, but also for the ears. As always, there are no restrictions whatsoever in what to stream. Just share what you like, every streamer has his own ideas and style, and it only makes the radio more interesting.

The radio is available here: http://radio.ernstchan.xyz:8000/

There's also a chat and a discord where you usually find people talking about gay porn and penguins during the streams.

http://ernst.bplaced.net/chat/blabax.php (You can register with an email or make a guest account which will tie your name to your IP. If you have a changing IP and want to keep your name register with email)

Connection data for the public stream: see pic 3. See also the beautifully crafted pic 2 and the infos on the radio page itself for additional details. Don't hesitate to ask if there's anything on your mind, there are lots of people around who have working streaming setups running and will be glad to help you out.

Cyber threats
Ernst, how can a cyber attack be "minutes away" from shutting down Australias power supply?

Is there any possible exaplanation, that this comment is factually correct?

Ernst tries to imagine how IT people in the electricity company are able to detect an intrusion and stop the attack, knowing that they did so just in time?

Do power companies have some sort of intrusion detection system? Are they scanning incoming and outcoming IPs? Did they realise that there is an open connection to a Chinese IP through the MSSQL port? Did they shut down their internet connection to investigate? How do they know what exactly the attackers had planned?

Or were the attackers already in the system (e.g., weak teamviewer password), and trying to get access to the internal control panel through bruteforce?

The claim was made by the following politician. Would he have a reason to lie?

Joshua Anthony Frydenberg is an Australian politician who has been federal treasurer and deputy leader of the Liberal Party since August 2018. He has been a Member of Parliament for Kooyong since the 2010 election.

IWO thread
Since there were talks about IWOs in the last Today thread, I am now opening the official IWO thread in order to not clutter the current Today thread. Put your not-full-blown-400-pictures-IWOs here.

Like that german in the other thread I also was at the seaside (kinda). I was certainly in the North. Sadly because I am a dumbass I forgot to take my camera most of the time, so apart from a few shots from the seaside I only have shitty cellphone shots and nevermind the picture numbering, they're not chronological.

  1. Highway toilet that usually shows ads. Funny enough, on the way back home, in another toilet, I encountered another toilet like that, but it was complaining about connecting to Android or something.
  2. Our hotel. "Recommended by ADAC", the german automobile association. Judging by the logo, the sign is way older than me, but I thought it added to the charm of the hotel.
  3. Same with the room. Everything there was probably older than me, apart from the TV. There was also this built-in radio that kinda worked one day, but didn't anymore the other day. Also, according to the brochure, every room has a telephone, but while I found a telephone plug, there wasn't one. Also, the tv channel chart wasn't up to date, but then again, I zapped through the channels for like five minutes and already felt the hate rise. I am glad I don't watch tv anymore.
The beds were separate and fastened to opposite walls. Shame I couldn't get a double bed anymore, but it was all really last-minute, so I just took the cheapest, closest hotel to where I had to go that I could find.
The empty bottles were build up over the course of a few days, we didn't binge drink or anything.
Also, they only had those dumb lamps that you switch on and through different brightness stages by touching them. Problem is, eventually they also react to vibrations, so e.g. when walking through the room. Once at night someone was just closing a door further down the hall and the lamp switched on. I unplugged them and everything was good from then on.

4. The bathroom. Functional, pretty clean, apart from the charmingly rusted shelf thing on the left. But then again, I doubt they have ever cleaned the ventilation thing.

Some quick informations:

  1. We already have people from multiple skill groups in our ranks, this includes people who wouldn't win a 1v1 against my grandma which means there's no reason to be ashamed to be bad, it's pure love in our group :3
  2. CSGO is free, we prefer playing in Prime mode for which you have to pay or you need to play a lot to get it for free. If you just want to try it out we're willing to play non Prime with you a bit.
  3. If you already play CSGO and have a rank above MG1 it might be a good idea to create a smurf account.
  4. The group is not exclusively made to play CSGO with ernst but it is primarily used for this at the moment, you can join and ask if someone wants to play something else with you.
  5. Every reason you think you have not to join is wrong.

I hate cyclists.
These pathetic do-gooders get a free pass for everything. They may use roads, but they don't need a registration plate, they don't need insurance, they don't need to present there vehicles for annual inspection, etc.
And why? Because cycling is oh-so-envirogreen. Cyclists are so disgustingly self-important.

And cycling is not enviro-green at all, because it blocks roads and causes traffic jams.
But cyclists still have that disgusting holier-than-thou attitude. Because the kike-jew media always tells them that they are so important and can't do any wrong. In reality, they are the worst scum of the earth.

They think they are important enough to waste the time of hundreds of people and annoy thousands on their shitty little playthings that don't belong on roads. Than they complain when they get punishment-passed, when they should be grateful for not getting killed.

The worst is when city councils steal roads from proper traffic and make them bikepaths.

Cyclists are scum. They contribute nothing. They prevent traffic and stop commerce, because goods and services don't get where they need to be. All because they think what they are doing is spo moral and enviro-green.

Ernstalbum v2 - international edition
Those of you who took part in the radio festival 2 weeks ago likely are familiar with the Ernstalbum. This is a collection of songs performed by Ernst - usually by picking an instrumental version of a well known song and singing your own lyrics to it. The idea started after Ernst recorded a fun song, and that song was in german, so the whole thing went to be an all-germ affair. Since Ernstalbum v1 is now complete and Ernst on /b/ has already started working on new material we were thinking about including /int/ for a potential second album, maybe even making a virtual 2-side record with one german and one international side.

Would anyone be interested in contributing to such a project? If yes: There's absolutely no need to rush anything - work on the Ernstalbum took about 1.5 years with various periods of inactivity inbetween, so take all the time you need. Also there are no restrictions on what (or how much) to deliver. It can be any genre, obviously it doesn't need to be properly produced and it can be serious or audio shitposting, anything is fine. It can also be instrumental as well, so if you don't wanna sing that's fine, too. So in case you're in on the project, do your thing and then either post the result in the thread or keep it for yourself as a surprise entry until the whole thing is presented. Either case it would be nice to announce a potential contribution in the thread so that other people see things are habbening. Presenting Ernstalbum during the radio festival was a fun event and we'll probably aim for something similar again, so there's no timeline yet.

Ernstalbum v1 is available for download (with one exception the songs are all german though): https://mega.nz/file/sRthQQIS#Lce6to4D_BdTV3jkIn8zK5Rhr5h5kM-MiFgiF9GiBZE

Coins
Hello Ernst,

could we please forget about all the hypes about Bitcoin etc. and just focus on the technical aspects?

Which cryptocurrency has the best specs? I'm talking in terms of actually using them as payment form, not this whole blockchain contract thing.

Which currency pays fast, is secure, anonymous(?), environmentally-friendly....

I just stumbled across Digibyte and I guess that one is just one of >9000 Altcoins. But its payment speed is 400x faster than Bitcoin and also much faster than Litecoin.

Currently I'm also paying my new VPN subscription using Bitcoin. First I had to convert my remaining Moneros to Bitcoin which took me about 20 min. Then I sent the Bitcoins and after 30 mins I only have 2 confirmations. Yes, I didn't want to spent much money on the fees.

What's everyone's favorite Altcoin?

Been watching old live election night coverage from the BBC recently. Going through the decades. Each time they do coverage they also have a little short less than a minute long sort of opening credit/montage to set the mood and get you excited for election coverage I guess. Most of them are pretty much what you'd expect from a news broadcast trying to make an engaging short about an election and coverage of it. A little bit of music and the faces of the leaders and party colors, sometimes some 3D effects in the 80s.

But this one from the October 74 election blows the rest of them out of the water completely. It's moody, sets the tone of suspense, it's down right cinematic! Check it out, it's too much of a pain to download a multi-hour youtube video just for the first 1 minute of it. Anyways honorable mentions go to the 1992 election coverage opening, it's pretty solid but nothing like 74. Dishourable mention goes to the 2001 opening, absolute trash boring and they got rid of the theme song they used from 79 onwards(though they readopted it in 2005 and 2019).

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".

träumen
I’m in some idiotic department store again, with my friend looking at headphones. It’s not a gaudy looking mall at least, it’s street level and well lit but still there’s nothing to do but consume. I leave my friend to whatever he’s up to and motion towards the clothing aisle where Trotsky is looking at a Guayabera. He shows it to me “Look, you think this’ll do?” Is he foreshadowing his move to Latin America with this? His hair is already white, it must be time. He reverses the shirt and shows me the label “JF” in stylised letters with the smaller text saying “Jomon Faudi”. But it won’t do. “Leva, you won’t stop being recognisable just because you have changed your style. You haven’t even shaved off your goatee yet.” I also haven’t parted with my facial hair, even though it’s getting ridiculous. “You need to stop wasting time with this shit and move to Mexico”. I know what’s going to happen to him in Mexico, but we all have to play our parts in history. It’s more interesting than Spain anyway. The track on the store speakers change: "Here's to you Nicola and Bart..."

I see that right next to us my friend managed to get a seat in the cafe section right next to us, just a few metres away. We both sit down and I keep yammering Trotsky on what he needs to do - and I add “Look, we’re trying to help you we’re not the fucking Spanish Inquisition”. At that instant I look at my left and standing next to us is… the Spanish Inquisition. They are wearing blue though. I say hi, but they appear to ignore both me and Trotsky - when my friend says Hola they do get talking, I guess they don’t give a fuck about two foreigners. My faceless friend motions to his wallets, and seeing what he does I mimic him and give the dudes a $2 silver coin from my pocket. Of course, religion has become a travesty of itself and it’s no surprise the ominously dressed dudes were in fact just begging for money under the excuse of some charity or whatever. For the “donation” they give us the fried pieces of chicken they’re selling - it’s just a tiny strip of breaded chicken, but anyway it’s in front of me and I’ll eat it. I taste it and it’s the exact same taste as the perfectly fried pork cutlet I had in that Michelin starred tonkotsu place in Tokyo. I inhale the aroma and feel that just so slightly vinegary apple sauce contrasting with the perfectly crisp meat on my tongue.

The scents, the songs and the places.

The Middle East and North Africa are Muslim now, but they used to be Christian. The Christians there got removed by Muslims. Do you think the same thing will happen to "the way, the truth, and the life" when a stronger lifeform encounters us and dismantles our planet for resources?

Having children and being a father
This is going to be an odd thread, but I don't really know what other imageboard to post this on(especially with that other place full of horrible people) but I want to be able to talk about this. How many here are old enough to be fathers now with their own kids? Or at least would want to one day? After many years of struggle I finally found a gf and two months ago she gave birth to a healthy baby boy I am very proud and happy to call my son.

It's been a real rollercoaster of emotions ever since, feeling highs of joy and despair at the same time. It's quite unlike anything I've ever experienced before, on one hand I'm really proud and happy to have a son but on the other hand I'm now suddenly terrified by this fear that I might end up being an inadequate father and end up with a fucked up human being. How do I not fuck this up? Parenthood is fucking terrifying, I've already given a lot of thought to not repeating my own father's mistakes, what else should I keep in mind?

I think many Americans, even white nationalist ones, seem to not understand the concept of "Honorary Aryan". On the "compilation of wacky WW2 Leaders" Hitler gets criticized for calling a random native american tribe "honorary aryan", "despite never meeting them and refusing to do the same for Italians". You can only declare this as wacky and critize it, if you actually think that declaring someone "honorary aryan" means they are aryan now.

I once watched some white nationalist american cartoons, where one of the protagonists was obsessed with asian women and his friend encouraged him that it's fine to be with her, because they are "honorary". (Murdoch Murdoch before you're asking)

Because of this and other incidents I presume Americans actually have no idea what honorary titles in general are. I think Americans actually think that Nazis declared them as aryans.

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.
As they leave the city, they throw their old clothes away and the reactionary forces (now poverty striken bums former clergy) fight over their discarded garbage.

Interjection
I'd just like to interject for a moment What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX. Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called "Linux", and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project. There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called "Linux" distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

My own experience was very German, but I hope some guys can relate to it.

Schleich Figurines. The details and realism are lovely. There is not much you can do with them, except for playing farm. To me, they were boring as old hell.

I had lots of toy cars. Matchbox and Hotwheels were OK, but my favorite car was a Siku T3-Bus in Bauknecht-livery, like this one. Mine looked a lot more used up. Damn, I loved that bus! I wish I still had it.

Both my brother and our cousin had Darda-sets. We would take lap times with a stop watch and clean and oil the engines.

I also liked Baufix very much, a construction toy for younger kids. You could build with it whatever you wanted, and I spent many hours happily putting wooden screws through wooden nuts. I played with it even when I was much too old for it.

Thinking of all of this makes me want to be a child again, although a happier child than I was. The child I could have been, under better circumstances.

I'm seriously considering buying it now that I have some money saved up and want to fulfill my dream of owning a large amount of land.

Bay Area sideshow scene
Do you have a local sideshow scene and is it as retarded as it is here? As you can see in the videos, local "youths" here engage in fun activities like going the wrong-way on a highway bridge, dabbing on motorcycle cops half the people doing this are off duty moto cops and their offspring, doing sick burnouts in the middle of the street, drag racing in school zones, and stealing each others' cars.

While associated with the criminal underworld they're uniquely distinct from the other criminal groups here, largely because the latter preys on the mentally destitute who cannot bring themselves to drive a vehicle let alone maintain ownership of one without pawning it for drugs. This could be seen in the 2013 Mesherle riots: there was a big event at the port with over 100+ cars. Eventually local police actually bothered to do something about it (TSA called them, TSA was unhappy. TSA lacks pursuit vehicles), when they announced their operation to each other all the smart cars heard it and bolted while everyone else was trapped as cops shut off the access roads. Great deals at the impound auction a month later.

As you can see there's a lot of illegal guns at these events too, which is notable because it's when the two groups I mentioned interact: the street racers and ricers want non-CA guns that nominally require a police officer to buy from. The latter group are all crazy homeless people who will steal such weapons right from cop cars for heroin. This is a known problem and the SFPD looses about 10-20 guns per year this way. Across the bay, Oakland is better about it and San Jose doesn't have this problem because San Jose kept their asylum open.

What is creativity?
I want to be a creative person and come up with ideas for an animated series, film, comic, book, visual novel, and whatnot. However I always end up disappointed in what I come up with. What would your creative process look like if you had one? I picked up Hayao Miyazaki's book "Starting Point 1979-1996" since I thought reading his thoughts on it would be a good place to start.
