Why would it make you suspect? It only does if you have a history of frequently using it I'd imagine. Which I guess for the people who chose the false idol of cabbage that would indeed be a problem.

I don't wanna steal traffic from Ernst but I see there is a demand for a board with lighter atmosphere. For those who got enough of Kohl but find Ernst too... heavy for most of the time I offer our board, /kc/, on endchan.xyz (please check other access options on the home page). We're featuring both casual chat and serious discussion, quite a few OC, and encouraging to express your own opinion instead just copypasting what you read elsewhere. It is a slow board which allows plenty of time to browse and post on Ernst too. Actually it's you who decide where, when and how much you post.
Thanks for your attention.

It's amazing how much YouTube has changed. I still remember when YouTube implemented the like:dislike ratio to supersede the star ratings like it was yesterday. Even more amazing is how YouTube's userbase has completely forgotten its more colorful personalities.

In the early days, users could produce direct video responses to each other, and dialogues would occur from all these back-and-forth videos within the userbase. A result of these was the rise of YouTube trolls. Anyone remember the old ass YouTube trolling communities from 2007 or perhaps earlier? With the mass normalization of the internet and the subsequent rise in YouTube's popularity during 2007, people uninitiated with the seedier side didn't really know how to deal with trolls. Trolling was still a foreign concept to most of the internet, so it wasn't hard riling up users thinking YouTube was their safe space.

Some of the earliest lolcows and trolls I became familiar with cropped up during this era. Two of the more prominent trolling crews were the Second Life griefers The Patriotic Nigras and Fried Chicken Trolling Crew. Most of them have long since become inactive and YouTube's sanitization has effectively salted the earth, but the memory still lives on.

Anyone else remember those days? Perhaps any funny stories?

I was just wondering if it's a thing because the Slavic choice of ghosts and demons being in post-apocalyptic games is a really odd one to Western viewers. I guess if theme is more like XFiles then it kind of makes sense. It's just that Western media seems to portray a completely materialist reality with no spooky stuff at all outside of horror and fantasy.

Witcher 3 is pretty good, you just need to go in with a different mindset. It's an RPG with a pregen main character. You get to flesh out the finer points but the general concept is set in stone. I remember your concern from earlier about having to play as Geralt the randy old man. Just go in with the knowledge that you are going to control how he navigates the world (several different ways are entirely in character and plausible) rather than who he is.

And yes, I agree that Fallout 4 isn't the best in the series but in many ways it came close. It just never really fulfilled its obvious potential. Combat was far better than it was in 3 and NV but it used DPS calculations instead of shot-based damage which made semi-auto weapons just plain better than automatic ones. Weapon customisation was also pretty nice and had a lot of options but base weapon options were limited and despite the variety of weapons, they felt less varied than in say NV. Then settlements which was pretty fun, and was cosy for a while but lacked anything to really do with them. They just sort of felt like padding rather than an actual game mechanic that meshed with the rest of the world. Levelling is a matter of preference rather than something that is binary good-bad, but I personally didn't mind its removal of skills, but did prefer Horizon's version where skills operated in the background by using them and perks tended to add a large lump sum to the relevant skills in addition to their usual benefits.

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

Seems that he intended to testify against persons of the American oligarchy. e.g. Trump oder Clinton.
Hence Epstein needed a friendly reminder that he should not do it.

I meant at macro and micro levels and I find it interesting that seemingly both death and increasing local entropy in the surroundings while requiring free energy are all things that have to be glossed over for that definition to work. But I'm not very good at physics so frankly I haven't got much business arguing the matter to begin with. The German was focusing on definition 3. I was focusing more on definition 2 and you on definition 1. Also the only reason the system can even exist is by a constant stream of energy from our nearest star. I see the system as being inherently unstable and still think you need a bit of mental gymnastics to try and keep this exact theory but whatever.

I'm not exactly an expert on it myself. I only know what I know because it was required to get at least a little bit familiar with the concept for the Basics of Information Theory course at my uni. And even then, although the professor insisted that we read Shannon's Mathematical Theory of Communication, I kinda took a shortcut and read Wolkenstein's Entropy and Information instead. It was a good read and I managed to pass the exam thanks to it, but I feel like my knowledge on the matter is still kinda insufficient. Maybe I'll get to Shannon someday, just for the sake of self-education.

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 made a fried potato and cheese sandwich.
I started with yellow potatoes, which had already been baked and then refrigerated. I put a few tablespoons of canola oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Butter also works well, and actually has better flavor. While the oil was coming up to temperature, I cut the potatoes. They were small, so I only had to cut them in half, and a few into quarters.
Once the potatoes are in the pan, I flipped them over a few times to coat them with oil. Since these were already fully cooked, they're only in the pan for 8-10 minutes, and I turn them over a few times during that span. I also sometimes sprinkle in some black pepper, but not today.
Once they're heated through, and the oil has created a crisp outer coating, I turn off the heat and drain the excess oil.
The potatoes are then returned to the pan, where I add some bits of Velveeta. I covered them to help it melt. I should note that Velveeta is technically not American cheese, but is a "cheese product" (>>24294 is right about the difference between American cheese found in the deli, and these other "cheese products", like Kraft singles. They are similar, but not identical).
After the cheese had sufficiently liquified, I poured the potatoes onto a deli hamburger roll. Another option here is to toast and butter the roll. Finally the sandwich is topped with some steak sauce. This steak sauce is why I didn't add any salt during the cooking process.

I made potato pancakes from some leftover mashed potatoes.
Since the potatoes were cold from the refrigerator, I put them in the microwave for about 90 seconds-just long enough to soften them up. I then cracked in 3 eggs, a bit of salt, pepper, frozen diced onions, and garlic powder. I didn't measure anything; it was all done to taste. You can mix in any combination of spices here, and cheese is also an excellent addition. Once these ingredients are stirred together, I add flour until the batter is firm enough to hold shape.
To cook the batter, I set a frying pan over medium-low heat and add a pat of butter for each set of pancakes. The batter is spooned into the pan and patted flat with a spatula (protip: apply cooking spray to the spatula to keep it from sticking). The pancakes cook for 3-4 minutes before being flipped. At this point I like to add another small piece of butter to the middle of the pan. After another 3-4 minutes, remove the pancakes and place them onto paper towels to drain any excess butter. For consistant cooking results, I also wipe any remaining butter from the pan before starting a new set of pancakes. It browns quickly, and if it is allowed to sit then each succesive run of cakes will become darker and more oily.
I made a total of 14 pancakes here, but 3 or 4 is a decent serving. The rest will hold for a few days in the refrigerator.

Did something like this Bacon Lettuce Tomato Sandwich since I found some pretty tasty tomatoes at the supermarket. Very simple & delicious!
I used whole wheat sandwich bread & put chipotle sauce on one of the bread halves instead of mayo. Next time I need to fry the bacon on lower heat though since it got a bit burned, also pick up some more expensive bacon while I'm at it.

The first pass is mandatory for every academic field. But since coming from the humanities the argument and relevancy [/spoiler]correctness and contribution you could say[/spoiler] is what counts in the end. There are "categories" (tho differing from the ones mentioned) and stuff like clarity, a context is always needed to classify the paper in a discourse. Also I didn't read the pdf further because it is about STEM. Yet I can account for the general part that it's the way to check/read any text of any (academic) field: paper, any article or a whole book. Structure is always the same more or less.

Do OECD papers and briefs have a distinct bias or is that just a diffuse assumption based on the suggested anonymity and complexity of said institution? As far as I can see it, they have researchers from around the globe but also voices from the industry and politics, yet it's clearly marked as such. Just lately I grew out of the hostility and thought it might be a good way to see how governance and the future is partly driven by such expert papers and what I can extract from that for my own info in addition to that of seeing how policies are somehow made at least partly due to such papers.

I check for the last author first. That gives me an idea of how to tackle it.
But normaly just figures first. If interesting enough a few parts of results. If interesting enough again, I read more of the discussion (often merged with results).
If there are no figures, I will scan for interesting mathematical models and start from there.

Introductions I never read and abstracts neither only very briefly sometimes when I'm not sure if the paper is actually about the specific topic.

I do not view happiness as something very important. Happiness is temporary and very rarely (if ever) exists for extended periods of time.
The way that happiness is viewed in the modern world as a prolonged state of existence rather than a temporary emotion like anger is a problem as it leads to people striving for something that they can never truly achieve. This is very easily open to abuse within the current economic system of the western world.

There have only been a few moments in my life so far that I have thought made me truly happy (as in crying tears of joy). These moments were always involuntary, and characterized by
by their pure existence "in the moment". I can give no rational reason for why I felt this in certain moments as opposed to others, as the activities and the environment were no different to "regular" moments.

Pleasure is even less important to me, as the pleasure I gain from activities such as food, sex, physical exertion, and entertainment is quickly lost and I am brought back to a baseline state of existence.
