Can we have a French language threada?
How many bougette-janguage speakers are here?
Will appreciate if Ernst can recommend me good resources that can help studying.

Goddamnit, I hate that language and I have to learn it. It's so frustrating difficult and syntax is so meaningless so I'm thinking that German language way much easier to learn. 11 tenses? For fucks sake!

>Another thing about French, I find it funny that ce ("this") and c'est ("this is") is pronounced the same.
Nein.

Ce (this) is pronounced the same as "se"(itself, as in "il se montre", "He shows himself").

C'est (This is) is pronounced like "sait/sais" (as in "knowing"), "ces" (These), s'est ("il s'est fait mal", "He hurts himself" (Contraction of the verb "être" and "se").

Je sais, je sais, c'est pas facile.

This.
Most alcoholics here either drink cheap, shitty beer, or wine made from bottom of the barrel grape leftovers. (Since the EU forbade wine flavoured ethanol and tablet-based wine)
We call it "Jugged wine". These "wines" are usually very cheap and are sold in 2 litre plastic bottles.

Not GIS, but have some experience with caving.

Here in MO, most large caverns which can be navigable by amateurs fall into two categories:
1. Commonly explored, making the chance of rediscovery quite high (be it the person or their remains).
2. All obvious entrances caged off, with limited/no caver access either because of private property, or more recently, to inhibit the spread of White-nose syndrome in bats.

So unless you and only you have knowledge of the cave, and you have no link to the missing person, it's actually a really shitty place to hide/dump someone. Everyone would suspect a cave, which is exactly why this tweet is so tantalizing. You'd have much better luck hiding someone in plain sight, like Ernstchan's favorite Austrian.

The cave map looks legitimate (see comparison), but the one on the top seems highly suspect without further information provided. I think what is especially important are the significance of the markers and the time period it covers. It appears to be an edit of the second attached map, which was compiled in something called "Missing 411":

Hm good point. I think you're right: the map may have been doctored by the OP in the interest of producing an ebin viral tweet.

>However, I am more inclined to believe disappearance investigations having dead-ends in the Appalachians, the Ozarks, and other area which fall off-the-grid. The original Missing 411 map supports that.

(a post of no particular interest and importance follows)

That feel when I love Motorola now (or at least what Motorola used to be years ago).
Fifteen years ago I bought the pic; at first, even though I didn't intend to use it for anything but calling and messaging, I felt pretty disappointed: it had issues with my provider draining my money through GPRS, it had troubles with reconnecting after I'd turn it off or take a ride by metro (all those issues were dealt with later), it couldn't serve as an mp3 player, its cam sucked (the whole process of moving photos from the phone to PC was really FUCKED UP), but then I kind of got used to it.

So the thing survived falling into water and uncountable collisions with all kinds of hard surfaces, and was serving me well for 15 years up until last week when I broke my charger (not the original one, the original got broken some eight years ago).

At first I didn't think it was a big deal until I ventured fourth to find a new charger. Turned out, it's not that simple. Additionally, I wasn't sure it was the charger that broke, not the phone itself.

So, not hoping for much, I tried to charge it via USB-PC. As expected, I failed. Then I googled whether L6 is capable of charging via USB at all. Turns out, it can, but, first, I need special drivers, second, the phone has to be charged at least for the slightest bit (thanks God, it was). Drivers were a misty matter though. L6 got out of production in 2005, I think. So why would anyone update drivers to it (fuck you Asus, fuck you Microsoft, fuck you Gigabyte)? And yet Motorola provided me with working Windows freaking 7 drivers for the phone! They worked smoothly and my 15 year old phone is charging right now just perfectly.

I know it's CoD/Modern Warfare which is a well known thoroughly trash series from a trash publisher/dev but
https://www.resetera.com/threads/call-of-duty-modern-warfare-blames-russia-for-the-tariq-almawt-bombings-aka-highway-of-death.149517/page-4
For some inexplicable reason they blamed the Highway of Death massacre in Iraq on Russia. Why I do not know. Normally I cannot understand this but judging by some reactions people are so sincerely fucking stupid I can see why someone would think such a bald faced lie would work on certain people (I actually spoke with someone who still thought 15 years later that Saddam had something to do with 9/11 and she wasnt stupid imo, though people around her definitely were).

It increasingly feels to me like EA and Activision solely exist to gobble up small studios and destroy them because they're controlled by the Illuminati and can't tolerate anyone having dissenting or conflicting opinions with propaganda. Still, this is just...I...I mean just fokinwutm8
Why?

At the same time it's mysterious to me how if you alter a minor detail there are people willing to say it's completely different. You know the sort. "No it's called Takistan not pakistan this clearly has nothing to do with Pakistan" sorts. It was partly why I found discussing things like PoE or Ember so infuriating because there was always this like 20-30% of people who would go out of their way to say they don't see any connection with other things. To this day I have no idea what motivates such people, how they think, or if they're only pretending to be stupid but it really reminds me most of the worst sort of Orwellian stereotypes about a double thinking brainwashed mind. This, I presume, is why some people still use such obvious lies and falsehoods to push their agenda.

I give up, I can't play this anymore. It's too boring and totally feels like a chore.
Combat is too rare and short, and kinda boring anyway, stealth is bad, writing is horrible, it's not just because of leftist crap or because it's cringy and juvenile, it's just bad and feels like it's draining my IQ. Disco was written by leftists as well and was fantastic. This one is one of those trendy ones that will use it's politics as an excuse and shield against criticism.
Everything is so unoriginal and uninspired, it is like a fanfiction, but not to a single game but a whole handful of aaa games: Borderlands, New Vegas, Bioshock, KOTOR, No Man's Sky, Prey 2017, rpg games in general. And it feels really cheap, really amateurish, just like fanfiction. It has no personality, aside from mediocrity personified.

Comrade, the problem is clearly Capitalism.

No really, I'm not even joking. The problem seriously actually is modern Consumer Capitalism. I've thought about this with why so much of pop culture is trash particularly American stuff and that's the conclusion I've come to, which is that consumerism is the worst destroyer of art imaginable.

Those windows seem like huge privacy concern. Of course it won't really matter if some weirdo with a drone 1000 feet away is watching you, but still I don't like it. Also it reminds me of a skyscraper I made in Minecraft where it was all glass except the floors and corner pillars, I don't think it looked good in that game and I don't think it looks good IRL.

Because climate change is one of those issues that's pretty children centric, like school shootings. It's because some retarded fucking boomer won't ever actually have to deal with or suffer the consequences for all the damage they've caused, but the people who are children right now, will. That is why this is a discussion about young people and the type of earth they will inherit, especially because the mentality of many boomers seems to be "lolwhatever not my problem"

As for protests yeah the London or wherever it was metro protest was kind of dumb, but it did get you talking about it. You are discussing the issue right now. That is the point of these protests. They succeeded in their goal. I am of the mentality that results count, so having a clearly defined goal and taking whatever if at times ruthless tactics are necessary to attain that goal is a respectable position. Everyone is talking about climate change a lot more. People are considering a lot more how yeah, it may not be our problems as adults but the population who will have to suffer for our wrongs already was borned and is living right now. Centering the discussion on these things is a valid point and a valid tactic.

Most adults do care about the consequences. And children have absoulutely poor reasoning especially greta herself, when it comes to climate change.

I would rather listen a scientist with facts than brainwashed child would believe anything with enough brainwashing. Climate change happened and still continuing because people were making emotional poorly thought decisions, this whole greta and cult are embodiement of that.

After some years of cooking with the aim of making it effortless, as little time consuming as it can get, but also with tasty and healthy results, i feel like recommending the following tools (beside pressure cooker):

  • microwave oven, for steaming or boiling vegetables, also for pre-heating food before frying or stir frying it. You can also find other interesting applications for it (like regenerating silica gel, at minimum power but keep always a glass of water to dispose of the extra energy)

  • slow cooker, for stewed or simmered meat of any kind, legumes, sauces and soups, also making broth from leftovers.

  • bread machine, for gruels (i don't use it for bread anymore: for good results you have to grow your yeast colture and it was too much of a bother, despite very interesting and quite rewarding)

  • automatic soup machine: you put ingredients, add broth and start it. In half an hour you get your soup. Problem is, you get about five portions of it, and in the beginning it is quite easy to mess up your meal if you don't follow their recipes. Then you get the gist of it and know what you can do wit it.

The thought of English tea is viscerally disgusting. If you're going to turn tea into a sugar and milk desert, at least add interesting spices or flavorings like Indians and East Asians do. Or do whatever Thais do to create their transcendent elixir.

For how central tea is to your culture, your tea culture is really disappointing.

British documentary about plague
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPe6BgzHWY0
Wow I didn't even know about that one. Or that London seemingly regularly suffered plague every 20 years. The thing that's so remarkable to me is how much they seemingly combined the kost outright lunatic quackery with otherwise perfectly reasonable seeming options, like quarantining the sick including with people they spent close proximity with (a QT is useless if only the actively symptomatic are held), trying to take what appears to be similar to sterilization procedures and avoiding contact with fomites, and killing off all the dogs and cats, which could even work with some diseases wiping out all the animals in the city but in the case of plague I'm guessing not so much. Odd that there is also no mention of culling livestock which is one of the reasons disease ran rampant to begin with, at least in cases other than plague.

There is probably a terrifying lurking danger building right now with last line antibiotic resistances combined with anti-vaxxers.
