Are there any words or sayings that sound funny or weird when translated literally into english?

Some German examples:

When literally translated the German word for bicycle means drive wheel.
The word for manslaughter would mean death punch.
Television would mean far seer/far viewer.

'In culo alla balena' lit. In the whales arse (good luck). Like in 'in bocca al lupo' (wolves mouth*) it functions like break a leg in English. Thespians for you.

'Al verde' lit. to the green (broke). Candles in Italy had a green base that was revealed as you burnt them down. To the green meant you were burning your candles to their last.

'Avere le braccine corte' lit. to have short arms (stingy). The mental image is of someone who can't reach their own pocket.

*You must respond 'may the wolf die'

I'm sure there's a lot of expressions, phrases, and idioms in English that sound weird as fuck in other languages but obviously I can't think of them because they're all normal to me. Probably a lot of them have to do with things like pissing in the wind, don't piss on my leg, things like that. I still think that probably my favorite Russian phrases are either God's forgotten village or basically something to do with proofstering "yes yes Russia put shit in your ass" to put shit in my pants.

I wouldn't relate attention issues with discomfort caused by slowness of EC.
Posting and lurking on KC was pretty fast, you received your replies very fast - that caused yoir brain pumpin dopamine earlier and more often. So your dopamine level on average was pretty high.
And, if we take what's written in Wikipedia,
>and many addictive drugs increase dopamine release or block its reuptake into neurons following release.
KC was helluva drug. And everyone decides for himself how to deal with the issue of the lack of dopamine.
So I can't really blame him for being unattentive.

You're bitching about all this while bumping a lone k*hl thread for whatever reason. Maybe the problem isn't the thread, but you my friend. Have you considered trying to engage in any of the other threads going back 25 pages instead of a cabbage tier shitposting thread?

As for the board itself it's a good way to start weaning yourself off internet addiction. I am perpetually embarrassed at how severely I have wasted my life on the dumb shithole that was KC. Anything after like 2014 was complete garbage yet I stuck around for years because you can hit refresh. If you want to see what that garbage leads us you can check out wherever the cabbagetard pedo network moved these days or 4kanker. I'm sure either will be brilliantly edifying and not filled with sick fucks and sad retards.

If anything it has shown me how pathetic IBs not are, not become, but always were. I wasted the better part of my youth on this trash and pity anyone who wasnt at least dating girls or going out to bars like I was, or building careers. I'd imagine anyone who didn't even have that would be fertile grounds for implanting any moronic ideology whatsoever provided it made them feel good or a pretend sense of belonging that's totally fake and based on flimsy pretenses while feeding them nonstop misinformation, hate, and envy.

Funny that you mention this because I currently try to do this.
With all that free time now I came to the realization that I have no hobbys nor friends.
The past 10 years my hobby was internet and my friend was anon.
Now I struggle to fill me with purpose and stuff I actually enjoy.

How does one make money online that doesn't involve crypto/SR/camwhoring? like for example, how does one actually start a blog and make money from it? Do you need to set up all kinds of things like bank account, a paypal or whatever, and have advertisers pay you or what?

Affiliate marketing still works to some degree but profits are going down. The reality is you will have to jump into black hat marketing for mostly anything that will be profitable and even legit quality products will need at lest some grey hat tricks to grow fast and make you money that is not "if my content stays good enough I might make some money from it in 3 years".
E-thot scams still work like a charm and the chance to get busted is near zero. Just sell some beta orbiters some pics you find literally anywhere for $30-50 worth of Amazon Gift Cards... You can easily get 1-4 customers per day, if you're into jail bait even more in the usual places
Flipping IG and TikTok accounts is easy money on certain markets but that is now more of a investment. Build them with a large number of followers now in what ever niche that is alway popular and sell them in 2-3 years for $100+ per account
Porn, porn always works so a porn blog where you just upload fap galleries from image boards is always in demand and porn affiliates give zero fucks how you generate your traffic of how you funnel them to their site
Reselling services always works, drop shipping with the "free xy for $xx shipping" with a $0.30 worth item with a $8 shipping free you pocket, (you just order it from AliExpress for free lel) still works in the US, in the EU not so much.
If you have a big hobby you're really passionate about monetizing videos on YT and selling extra content on Patreon always works and scaleability just depends on your skills to pump out new quality content.

Pulled an all nighter to start a sideproject. Kept working on some documentation I'm doing for the company I work for. I do not feel the side effects of sleep deprivation at it's fullest. I feel sorta hypomanic as well, like I should go 48h without sleep again. But I might not do that at all.

Peace, Brents.

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?

There is no difference between people from both "left" and "right" sides who think that it's right to enforce reduction of human rights based on thier "view of ideal society". If you so don't want "cancers of society" and "ideal world" - build death prison camp for yourself where you will feel yourself happy, don't enforce others live in it just because some people don't fit in your twisted vision of ideal world.

Living in countries where pseudo-socialism and authoritarism is major part of society, you feel only disgust towards anyone who saying how you "should" live. And yes, it's only leed to degradation, even if it present good looking picture from outside sometimes. Living as some sort of retarded herd will never make anything better for making.

I think hard about what both of you wrote. I don't quite get it, I'm sorry.

>How did university go for you socially?
Not at all, mostly. Pic related is what I never had. Sometimes, someone took pity on me and allowed me to tag along. I walked through the park on my way to uni, and as soon as it was 15°C, it was full of topless dudes playing frisbe or volleyball. I walked by, trying to not look left or right and at least keep an upright posture. I never was able to throw or catch. I was miserably bad at billiards and darts.

I knew a Serbian girl in uni, she used me as a live teddy bear. She always told me about other dudes. One time, she told me
>I really like X. He told me how he fucks another girl every week. He goes to $club, and he stays until they close. Then, he blocks a hot girls way so she has to talk to him, and then he has sex with her. He's so ***honest***
another time, she told me

>She constantly told me about her first boyfriend, how great he was, how good it was that they were still friends, and how awesome their recent trip together to a European capital had been
In this case the correct response in my opinion would have been: "Well, why don't you get tit surgery, cook every evening and give me 3 blowjobs a day, then you can make demands" or something like this, just to show her that she's being unreasonable here. People really should be told off when they make unreasonable demands like your old GF, otherwise they will believe that they are right (because you didn't stand up against it, so it must have been the truth, right?). And I actually found that telling such people off leads to gaining respect, instead of losing it, because they notice that they can't bully you around. Of course you risk that she'll pack her bags and leave, but she eventually did anyway. And from what I read here you should be glad that she's gone.

I noticed something that applies to most areas in life: There are people who complain a lot, and then everyone just assumes (even the people who receive the complaints) that the reason for this is that there is a lot to complain about. In reality more often than not the reason is that some people just love to complain, while other people mind their own business and don't care about constantly pointing out others (no matter if real or not) flaws. So if one person constantly complains about the other, it might be for a reason, but it also might be that the complaning person is just very, very, annoying.

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.

Frankly I find it amazing that Qtards even exist at this point still convinced the guy us going to lock up all the pedos. Everywhere you turn there's some other member of the elite pedo network connected to Donald Trump, and George Nader isn't even someone alleged but a known and convicted pedophile who he hired onto his campaign. It really starts to look like the reason he's even known all these guys is because he knew them through the pedo network like Barr, Acosta, Dershowitz, Epstein, and now you've got these guys.

The problem is Americans are extremely dumb and histrionic. I'm worried about not having a gun because I'm surrounded by stupid as shit Americans. I do not want to be around all these bourgeois soccer moms, hoodrats, rednecks, and other assorted bydlo when SHTF. It's more a "I need guns because other people have guns" type of a thing"but why don't you have guns ernst" because I have typically been too poor to afford one which is like a month's rent to get an actually decent gun or one I'd genuinely want not just a shotgun and because the odds had always been that I am far far vastly far more likely to use it on myself than anyone else which is precisely why I have never bought one, and on top of that I was also an alcoholic and frankly the odds were not zero that I'd hurt someone on accident. "But why didn't you buy one and keep it in storage" because it was a ridiculous cost that I could not afford which is irrelevant because even if I did have one it'd still be in storage anyway just like my bb guns and pellet rifle none of which I have any access to right now in which case I'd still be completely fucked.

Halfway between prepping and technologist, this man shows what you can accomplish with just a few good tools
Was just watching some pretty ebin videos about living in cabins, survivalism, and cheap living but ended up skimming over some. Building a cabin on a bakkie sounds like a fantastic idea for cheap living, if you can find a cheap enough pickup truck that is. I'm guessing the main problem is ultimately going to be about power which pretty much translates to batteries.
