If a cancerous cell line from a vertebrate becomes established as a venereal or otherwise transmissible disease (eg Devil Facial Tumor Disease, Canine Transmissible Venereal Tumor), does this represent a new life form distinct from the species that cancer developed in originally?

Perhaps addition to definition of life - localized decrease in entropy? Compartmentalized information gradients? Trying to think without 'biocentrism', there must be a lot of weird shit out in the universe beyond aminoacid-based replicants.

The entire history of science is categories and compartments being assumed, and then realizing they were wrong. Everything is always more hazy, interconnected, and complicated. The 'Western' view was kind of vital for scientific inquiry though i think, even if it isn't the most accurate way of representing reality.

Many of the scientists researhing astrobiology/origins of life today think of life in these terms

In case you were surprised by parser, there is explanation. Ernstchan supports Wakabamark markup code.

The basic features are as follows:

  • Surround text with * or _ to make <em> tags. _Like this_ or *like this*. This makes the text italic.
  • Surround text with ** or __ to make <strong> tags. This makes the text bold.
  • Make an unordered HTML list by beginning each line with *, or -. You can add line breaks in list entries by breaking the line and indenting the next line with one or more spaces.
  • Make ordered HTML lists by beginning the first line with "1.", and the following lines with further numbers. It actually doesn't matter what numbers you use, as long as the first one is 1.
  • Make <blockquote> sections by beginning each line with ">".
  • Make <code> sections by indenting each line by four spaces or one tab. Code sections get shown in a monospaced font, and are not otherwise formatted.
  • Make short spans of code in normal text by enclosing the code in backticks, `like so` . To display code that contains backticks, use several backticks to surround it, ``like so`` .

Why is it that Western societies and by Western I really just mean American have a bizarre fanatically belief against charity and goodwill?

Do you think we would be better off to have something like this?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zakat

Just imagine, getting lots of money from an anonymous rich source and it being expected of you. In America people actively bitch about this with terms like "welfare queens" and an Ayn Randian contempt for poor people. How did this even happen? Why do people tolerate it? I am at a loss for words now in that general sentiment, where simply receiving and giving charity is frowned on with a kind of contempt. Do you think American society is kind of Satanic?

Do you take this view?

well if you ask the general opinion, anyone who is not wahhabi just perceives them odd. also there is no "real islam" and will never be since there is no singular authority that accepted by them. in here turks see them as loudmouth and freak people, arabs see turkish muslims as something like half paganist even though the turkish way of islam is crawling in pain for 500 years and many of traditions wiped out to core.

Since you keep insisting on spamming your fucking videos I'd just like to address this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eumfcEWTab4 as in the first few minutes a very good reason why I despise poltards so passionately and consider them subhuman trash. Acting like the whole world and all the rest of us should follow your human trash rules is why you should all get your shit pushed in. We're on the outside. All the rest of you dumb fuckups can piss off. It is extremely conspicuous just how many of these "xXx1488_PrussianbluexXx" tier race warriors are nothing but fucking ex cons with nothing better to do. You don't get to tell us to follow your prison rules IRL. You now have to assimilate and follow our rules or get crushed.

My original post was just an attempt at humour at how the imperial powers relished in these tribal differences that for outsiders seemed trivial but for those within the same cultural group created an abyss of differences.
A good part of my Russophilia comes from the plethora of distinct ethnic groups that live under the banner of the Russian Federation.

1st gneration: TRUE BADASS WARCRAFT le medival warfare in 80s-ealy90s style dark relistic fantasy
2nd generaltion: Intermission Warcraft - still high fantasy but going slightly to what it will become in future (Warcraft adventures)
3rd generation: WARCRFT3-Vanilla WOW - still good and more developed universe that changed style and added more crap in universe because without new content there no reasons to continue. There still more fun that crap, since warcraft 3 story was pretty nice by itslef
4nd generation - BK and WotLK - much more crap, but not to much to drop it, not ALL things from old warcraft replaced and here are stilkl reasons to follow
5th generation - cataclysm-now - "crap".

We had a small discussion a while back. I thought it might be interesting to give it its own thread.

I don't really play because of no frens, but I've recently been working on a cube for Magic. It's a pretty fun exercise really, especially with my stipulation that all cards must be modern border because I want a more uniform look to the list rather than a mix of very different frame designs. I don't know if I'll even bother to ever put it together in real life but filling out a spreadsheet of cards, comparing them and seeding the various archetypes while maintaining the desired power level and 'feel' of the set is really fun in an autistic kind of way. Probably less fun if you don't enjoy what is essentially game design, a whole lot of crunching numbers and not a whole lot of actually playing the game.

I also like hex wargaming but only play PC versions because no frens, let alone grognard frens who will play non-miniature based wargames. From what I understand, it's pretty much all Warhammer and games similar to it around here. Then again, with how I like to take a break and think over a turn for a good while before executing the attacks, it's probably best that I don't play with real people. I've wanted to try ASL for a long time, but that game is so ungodly expensive that it's not really worth it when you can get entire games for less than some of their factional expansions.

If you want even more role playing than in DSA, take a look at the Cthulhu P&P as well as Vampires The Masquerade, both focus on telling stories without too much number crunching. Vampires especially can be played with barely any calculations at all.

The extreme would be the FATE role playing system, where the story can be made up by both the master and the players on the go and the dice rolls don't even require counting higher than 4.

DSA is already nice if you want classical fantasy, but nobody outside Germany know it. The Cthulhu rpg has the interesting twist that barely any character survives more than one adventure and instead of taking damage your chars lose sanity.

I got to a point where I'm pretty happy with my cube's common section. The main limitation is that I'm trying to keep it modern bordered rather than mixing and matching. There are a few archetypes supported but I also tried to just include good value cards in there where I could. Can you spot any of the archetypes yet? It's a Conspiracy cube so it is built a bit different to traditional cube. That's why there are multiples, conspiracies often like to interact with multiple cards of the same name and while I'm not playing them all, I'll be playing enough that it makes sense for them to exist. Also, I am trying to make it feel more like custom limited than a traditional goodstuff cube. Any other players got any feedback? Keep in mind I'm trying to keep some lower-power stuff in there to get the limited feel to it and Conspiracy limited is multiplayer so games tend to go long.

Maybe when I end up finishing the cube, we can playtest it on xmage or something. It could be fun to cube with Ernsts.
