Hello Ernst,

How to block printerest?
It's the worst shit site ever and its google optimization is very good.

Very often I get excited that I found something on google, click on it and it's fucking printerest with a super generic page.

So I may ask, how to kill it? I could add it to the host-file, but it wouldn't make it vanish from google.

What is printerest even?

I was the best poster on Ernstchan.com/int/ until the hour that it died. It broke my spirit and left a void in my heart that hasn't been filled, I am now too bitter to bother putting much effort into my posting. However there are foreigners asking a question so I gave them a visual aid. When I go to the doctors office and there is a fat secretary there that browses the internet all day she will be on Pininterest if not Facebook. That is what women do online

Is any Ernst here into Trading? Be it stocks, currencies or whatever else cryptos are gay

I just sold my ADVA Optical Networking stocks because they went trough the roof in the last few days and i wanted to profit before it goes back down.

I still own stocks of the companies Steinhoff International and Telefónica Deutschland.

Steinoff is pretty much worthless right now so buying a few hundred stocks is cheap and there's potential upwards.

How about you?

I don't know why you'd want to invest in cars but say minerals is too risky. There is huge demand for it particularly anything electronics related and that is highly unlikely to ever be disrupted. It's just volatile. Meanwhile demand for cars may be almost as good as dentistry in some cases but look at things like 2008 the only reason major car manufacturers are still around is because the government kept them afloat. GM would otherwise be dissolve by now. And your major market is going to be the developing world with things like China, which maybe if it's some recognizable German thing would be a safe bet but I'd imagine they're already heavily developing their own internal markets.

You know, up until the last several years I had expected that there would be at least some people who are smart enough to see what China is deliberately doing who work for our government, but nowadays I don't. It seems patently obvious to me that China is waging a full scale economic war against the planet. By selling shoddy goods you also manage to sabotage everyone else's economy while growing yours. It is a tool of warfare and soft power.

Then we talk about different things all the time.

it's not about my personal burden here, it is about people with responsibility, be it Thatcher or Erdogan or in another sense: an abstractum like capitalism that has control over your life, your are dependent from it even tho you didn't even choice to give rights to "it", that is my problem. you are depedent from wage labor if you are not someone who has some share holds or whatever and let money work for you.

what you basically seek is a society, where nobody has control of anybody else, so some kind of anarchy with kinship and all?

views will be imposed on you even in a society that is not care&share, like we have today...too bad the state is not an antagonist to capital.

wait, isn't boyfriend/girlfriend gender-neutral?

gender != sex

it took me a long time to realize, that "gender" is some "self"-feeling about the state of your own mind, not your actual sex. we do not have anything like that concept in our language. always thought it is a synonym for "sex".

and "girl" or "boy" is a word referring to the sex of a human. nothing to do with gender. therefor the terms are gender-neutral.

or am i missing something?

i feel like i cannot untangle the logic behind this gender-bender-thinking. is there any logic? or just feelz?

Continuing on GIFs:
LZW by design restricts any possibilities of breaking images.
In brief, what LZW is?
Imagine that you start numbering every pair of values, like, "Co" makes pair No. 1, "on" makes pair No. 2. You number them further, later you meet the pair you already numbered, like "ti" in "possibilities", so you decide to make a pair No. XX, consisting of "ti" and "e". And so on, and so on. Later you just write down numbers of pairs instead of writing down contents of the pairs.
You can't suddenly make a pair No. 5 after a pair No. 3. You must define pair previous pair, pair No. 4 first.
That's how it works in GIF.
And then you copypaste gibber in the file. Will it work? Most possibly, no, it can have numbers of pairs which were to be defined further, but you put them earlier than they could appear, and decoder just refuses to decode the file. Therefore, making "glitch art" from GIFs is inherently difficult.
Hope somebody sees the message in the systemkontra'd thread.

An article in Foreign Affairs last month hypothesising a coming battle between liberal democracy and digital authoritarianism had a paragraph that has really stuck with me:

>Even the mere existence of this kind of predictive control will help authoritarians. Self-censorship was perhaps the East German Stasi's most important disciplinary mechanism. AI will make the tactic dramatically more effective. People will know that the omnipresent monitoring of their physical and digital activities will be used to predict undesired behavior, even actions they are merely contemplating. From a technical perspective, such predictions are no different from using AI health-care systems to predict diseases in seemingly healthy people before their symptoms show. In order to prevent the system from making negative predictions, many people will begin to mimic the behaviors of a "responsible" member of society. These may be as subtle as how long one's eyes look at different elements on a phone screen. This will improve social control not only by forcing people to act in certain ways, but also by changing the way they think. A central finding in the cognitive science of influence is that making people perform behaviors can change their attitudes and lead to self-reinforcing habits. Making people expound a position makes them more likely to support it, a technique used by the Chinese on U.S. prisoners of war during the Korean War. Salespeople know that getting a potential customer to perform small behaviors can change attitudes to later, bigger requests. More than 60 years of laboratory and fieldwork have shown humans' remarkable capacity to rationalize their behaviors.

I am just suspicious of anything where all traffic gets sent through it.

The easiest thing to do is just be unnoticed, because the fact remains this is an absurd amount of data.

Fascism is shit regardless OP, and you clearly know nothing of what you're talking about. "Small fishing village" for instance. It'd be like trying to defend everything shit and incompetent about Communism except that at least really did industrialize a bunch of agrarian nations--which also doesn't mean they needed Communism to do that. Plus I'd personally rather not live in a fascist country. You know what's a great fascist country? Saudi Arabia. You'd love it there. State and business concerns are merged under a monarchy, total separation of genders, general ethnic homogeneity, "SJWs" are executed etc.

My suggestion to all these dumb pricks is to try moving to their dream paradise of North Korea or Saudi Arabia.

The PAP was initially very left-wing, until the left wing faction, led by Lim Chin Siong were purged from the party in 1961. They formed the Barisan Sosialis, which were crippled in 1963 by Operation Coldstore.

Also what kind of nonsense is it to consider LKY and the PAP fascist? If it suited Singapore, the PAP would adopt policies regardless of ideology. For instance, the HDB public housing scheme that now houses 90% of the population, or the Certificate of Entitlement scheme which artificially reduces car ownership rates. The economic sector is generally very free-market liberal. The reason why the PAP has been in power for so long is incompetent opposition and subtle but effective control of media and speech.

I actually took up work on my first novel/novella. As I was only writing short stuff so far it is going forward really slowly and so far I have 12 pages. It is sort of frustrating that after researching I found that commonly they want novels to have a length of about 200 pages minimum as 100-150 would be perfectly enough for what I'm writing. Supposedly chances to get published nowadays aren't as bad as one might think, even though there is not as much people reading anymore as like 100 years ago, the whole scene has become more permeable and publishers are always looking for new good authors. I guess it is going to be much harder on the burgerlands though with english being lingua franca, also I heard horror-stories from /lit/ about publishers looking exclusively for minority-related authors and other stuff like that. Are you willing to write literary or genre fiction? I guess the latter will be asy if you are a somewhat gifted writer.

Yeah I was mostly thinking eventually a series of novellas and short stories in an interconnecting universe. I guess vaguely scifi would be some of them, although tbh I find it way easier writing about actual things rather than making things up whole cloth. I'm pretty sure I'd run out of material fiction wise, although really my biggest problem altogether is lack of discipline.

Does buddhism have a philosophy that is actually secular? After experiencing many sufferings© i noticed that the approach to try to understand suffering seems to be how buddhism was formed.

What i understood so far from reading into it, is that some dude named Siddhartha about 500 years b.c. experienced sufferings and decay, then thought about it and came to the conclusion that nothing has any real value in life as everything will be gone sooner or later. He then just wanted relief from suffering and some peace of mind and concluded that understanding the reason for suffering and avoiding them for the future is the key to achieve it. Maybe as an example of how i understood it, if someone insults me but i then understand that he only insulted me because he was scared about something, i would not get mad about it. Also i would get less upset myself if i think for a moment and try to understand why exactly i want to insult someone else and then don't bother to do it anymore. Kind of like performing psychotherapy on yourself.

So he put this ideas together, but not like a prophet, more like "these are some of my ideas feel free to improve them". Which makes me wonder how this evolved into a religion. Most supernatural ideas surrounding it (like being reborn) were ideas that already existed in the area before Siddhartha and were attached lateron so they blend better into their current culture.

Also if the core of buddhism is just a bunch of ideas on how to avoid some sufferings for your life, i wonder if it actually works or is more the kind of autosuggestion where you just tell yourself everything is fine.

>Religious beliefs have no access to a factual truth.
That's not necessarily true. One of the most oft cited examples is the Big Bang. Which is pretty approximate to what current science says happened, minus the "God did it" part of religion whereas science says "we dunno what caused it"

>That's why it is so similar to "what you like": you think it's true only because you feel and like it on an emotional level ("resonated with you").
Again this is a falsehood. You merely presume as such, as opposed to others wherein for much of history theology was a scholarly thing. The idea that religious or mystical beliefs and conclusions come solely from the fuzzy wuzzies probably says more about you than it does theology.

>Not because you discovered undenieable evidence which proves that truth.
I've had enough spooky experiences many of which are not even plausible given the known material reality for me to state otherwise. I simply have neither the tools nor the knowledge to conclusively verify it, let alone scientifically reproduce many of these instances.

You are going quite astray... Current science is an explorative search for theories and their evidence. A theory lacking full evidence or having parts unknown has nothing to do with religion, it's just part of the process.

>The idea that religious or mystical beliefs and conclusions come solely from the fuzzy wuzzies probably says more about you than it does theology.
Religions are mostly dogmatic - statements and stories deliviered by prophets or spiritually "enlightened" individuals or groups. I'm surprised at your attempt here as most religious people don't question that there is no factual truth within religion as in evidence, proofs. I'm not saying this to insult religion. Theology is not trying to compete with natural science, as it is instead mostly studying the religion itself, in terms of history, archeology, sociology etc
