As, so it is actual fashion after Ran and Steampy and also liberal views of channel on authors.
USSR had kinda same, when to cartoons was allowed everyone basicly. If movies and other media often was censured, nobody cared for most time about catoons, since it "for kids", and we have hell lot of ugly, experimental, art-house, some deep philosophy and other total trash, that hit it's maximum at the end of soviet union where basicly was allowed everything.

It's terrible that making something "for kids" would be used as an excuse to do do a lousy job. Children need to be exposed to high quality cartoons when they're really young so they develop good taste.
>liberal views of channel on authors
I think you said it better than me. When artists are free to create, it can go really good or really bad. I do think the ugly style can work in certain situations, like Rugrats, for instance. It was about babies, and babies kind of see the world distorted, so the art had a purpose. When it was copied in later cartoons like Rocket Power it was just the Klasky-Csupo studio style, but didn't really add anything to the show and it was no longer even creative.

Well, in therms of actual soviet country, it was only place for many and many artists, where their art won't be destoyed by bulldozers if you know what I mean X--DDD

Sometimes it did realy well thought, like this clips that was inside "Trreashure island" cartoons was pretty fun and in style you neet see often in soviet screens.

Famous post-ussr captian pronin with all his mems was another clear product of it's time that was fun to watch. All this cartoon with meraphorical memes is actually how very sharp changes of country and culture feels like.

The killing of KC and the split into Kohl and EC was deliberate and the only way to combat the increasing shittyness of KC while allowing everyone to adapt and compose his Imageboards experience to his own liking.

What kills imageboards is a lack of QUALITY posters, and hordes of shitposters drive them away.

Let me ask you something, when is the last time you heard anyone mention 4chans /b/? When is the last time you ever even thought about it? Do you even actually still consider it to be a living or dead board? Now that you think of it, does a part of you actually imagine no one must post there anymore?

Hordes of cancerous faggot shitposters killed KC. It killed 4kanker /b/. It eventually destroyed most of 4kanker. It also killed old EC. It is literally cancer. The unrestricted growth of useless cells that serve no other function than to multiply themselves until it kills the host.

>>5426
This retard is an excellent case in point. Shitposters eventually drown out all discussions and flood good threads off the board with their unrestricted--sometimes knowingly deliberate--shitposting. It destroys the community utterly. That is why KC literally no longer exists. They are an infection in human form.

I lately got caught up in a circlejerk of right wingers.

They went on raving about how our beautiful culture is replaced by immigrants.

One got all riled up that everything is full of kebab vendors nowadays and how he would never decide to eat a kebab.

"No", he said, "I would rather have nice traditional cevapcici".

It completely escaped him that these two were literally the exact same thing and concept.

I'm talking about the way business links are maintained. In China businesses tends to be cutthroat* but in Africa the focus is instead on maintaining trust and long-term relationships in the absence of law-bound written contracts. Think of it in the same fashion as how important honour was to people in old American westerns.

You see it throughout the film when, for example, he deals with farmers supplying food with constant accusations of them selling him sick animals (the documentary is a comedy remember). The ending saga especially makes this clear when Yang must get supply chain information from his gravel contact which he is reluctant to provide for fear that Yang is trying to fuck him. Only Eddy is able to save the day by giving his word that they aren't out to cut him from his business.

The ending scene then has Yang, after securing a big contract for stone, deciding to measure the shipment on site being convinced the guy is cheating him. Even after they mend his lorry. Nevermind Africa, if you did that nonsense in Britain the guy would tell you to fuck off and I've seen that happen with builders when investors decide to get involved.

*They are after all regarded as the "Jews of Asia" especially in areas with a large expat community like Malaysia.

I was actually just thinking this last night after watching crime videos, that thing often isn't so much why would somehow think to accuse you of a thing, but rather why it even occurs to the accuser that is a thing to do to begin with. I particularly see this with for example a certain cancerous board's shitposters who are well known for loosely flinging accusations around when a lot of the time they themselves are guilty of that very thing.

So just the fact that this guy is so paranoid they are trying to cheat him already indicates at the very minimum he comes from a culture where corner cutting, lies, and cheating are rampant and normal, if not that he himself would think to do such a thing. And it is in particularly poor judgment as well as poor taste because it makes people start to think in the back of their mind "no of course I am not trying to cheat you...wait why, are you thinking of cheating me?" I'm trying to remember the exact phrase but something along the lines that one of the first things a con artist does is making some talk about being afraid people are trying to con him. You treat people how you expect to be treated and largely model others on an internal model of yourself and your own motivations. This creates that "I'd have done the same to you/you'd have done the same to me" mentality which fundamentally undercuts a certain sense of trust outside of extremely high risk high margin activity like the black market, which is also more likely to involve people who will straight up kill you even over something comparatively petty so you plan accordingly. Meanwhile bringing a gun to a contract negotiation in Western business would be absurd, and much more likely to look like you're trying to threaten them rather than you feeling threatened.

>And literally anybody who's dealt with the Chinese in any way ever can confirm this.

I don't entirely agree with it. There's a specific way of dealing with Chinese manufacturers, it involves repeatedly asking the same questions over and over again. They'll often try to hide an answer in Chinglish, and they'll know what they're doing. Generally they wont specifically lie, but they'll try to imply things that aren't true.

>it actually made me realize how depended our lifestyle is on energy.

Yes, it replaced both the manpower as basic power of the economy (replaced by machines driven by steam-, combustion engines or electricity) and a given gold quantity as a basic global economic account unit, (replaced by the petrodollar).

However it should be kept in mind that even grains/wheat are just a form of harvested and distributed solar energy. and that societies and empires of the past were already very much dependent on (this paticular form of) energy. So I doubt the modern age is a complete anomaly in that regards.

He states all of what you said in the first chapter and yes humans have always been dependent on energy in some form.
But let's the say the mode of energy is really what makes the difference in how life turns out on this planet, including democracy when you want to follow Mitchells argument.

I have to say I only made it the quarter into the book, it seems to be more interesting in the second half, when its about the age of oil after ww2, so far I got up to the times around WW1 and between the world wars, when oil started lift off more or less. But I have to quit since I have more important things to read and to work on, sadly.

>>
No. 4851
No way to translate it with an article since it doesn't exist in Russian. Whether or not it'd be used would depend on context. If I was to write a sentence about it, I'd probably go with "... the 'injustice critic' youtube channel..."

I'm referring to a specific thing, that channel, so I use the article but I don't use it as part of the name itself since it is probably wrong to translate a name with something it cannot have in the native language.

"the" typically designates singular or a title.

For example:
Jesus Christ is THE son of God

or

Jesus Christ is A son of God

Do you see how the different article renders those subtly but completely different meanings? If Jesus is simply "a" son of God it implies that there are or could be other sons of God. It denotes more a type of status or categorization. THE indicates it as more of a title, for example "the heavy weight champ" specifies a specific individual, "a heavy weight champ" is more general and categorical. Saying about a specific day that "the day was rainy" indicates that that specific day was rainy. Just saying "a day was rainy" doesn't indicate which specific day. "injustice critic" unless it is a specific name or title as in channel "InjusticeCritic" would sound like "an injustice critic" as in a job or profession. "the injustice critic" is referring to a specific channel or person. If you were speaking generally, like "the job of the injustice critic" is speaking in that case specifically of the professional in that profession.

Haven't worked on my translation at all.
Went to the pool instead and watched some anime.
My mind is so set on this that I keep imagining the English subtitles in a reworked Hungarian fashion as I'm watching.
There was a heat alarm, so I couldn't get any gardening done either.
I planned on drinking some alcohol but decided against it.
Because I've lazed around today, I've just missed the deadline I've set for myself. At page 150 by the end of the week. I was one page short.
But it was too hot to work, not to mention there were people around.
I've arranged a student job for myself for the week after, and I want to be mostly done by then.
Shouldn't be so hard on myself with this. Translating the text doesn't mean anything, since I'll have to rework the first 66 pages because I've changed a bunch of expressions along the way because I was an inexperienced retard and didn't do it properly.
That'll be nice.
I'll print it out, and read it. Then I'll see what has to be reworked.
