Lol your library looks almost identical to mine except for a few things like Ducktales, Farcry, Final Spam, Flatout 2, Arma II and so on, and if you dont count those and combine my wishlist with few games I only haven't got yet because I'm not rich or it got delisted from Steam like Alpha Protocol and it's basically my library.

https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197973112890/games/?tab=all I may or may not end up killing the post for this but whatever
I nabbed Alan Wake once it got relisted on Steam again. Not sure why they took that off before or why Alpha Protocol got taken down. On 4kanker /v/ when I was checking threads this year or last (those are the only things remotely tolerable about that hellhole is steam summer sale threads) Alpha Protocol was routinely showing up, but it must've been last year because I saw it before and had it wish listed iirc but it got taken down sometime before the summer sale of 2019.

Of course then there are the games I have taken down from my wishlist just out of principle like Age of Mythology and Dragon Age Origins. I refuse to pay for those games or have any of my money at all go towards Activision or EA. I am on a complete boycott of those companies and will only pirate them. The worst part is when I'd see a nice game and get it a few years ago and find out later it is fucking EA. So I haven't played Age of Mythology, Alpha Protocol, or Dragon Age Origins yet partly because I haven't remembered to pirate them and I only have like 1.5tb to work with. More if I finally went ahead and formatted a couple old drives I have hanging around since I'm pretty sure I already backed up anything valuable it's just I cant remember if I have a disassembled laptop somewhere that's fixable or not for them. Hell I should try that.

Wait...ohhh right because I actually wasnt even plugged in to the internet at that time when I was playing and finished Fallout Tactics. Which, wait a minute then why the hell is PoE so long
I could not have POSSIBLY spent more time in that pos game than it says but maybe I did. That is just one campaign and not even counting the DLC which might be part of why I rip on it so much so frequently because of the sheer amount of time I felt like I sunk in that game without getting a whole lot back. It's almost like playing the slot machines or something, where you just keep hoping to get better and it drags on and saps your time and then every once in awhile it does a cool little interesting thing for just long enough to keep your hopes up and keep you playing. God I can't even imagine how much of that is loading screens. I probably have like a solid 20 hours on PoE which is just loading screens. Can you imagine? I'm not even young anymore. I wasted probably three solid full time job shifts worth of my life minimum on doing absolutely nothing but sitting there looking at Pillars of Eternity loading screens. And it isn't even fucking turn based so you can't just walk away and like cook pasta or have a cigarette as you can on XCOM2 thinking about what you're going to do next or savoring a hard won victory speaking of which why the fuck did they change that in WOTC? I liked watching my dudes sit there shifting around their sits on the drop ship. Now I just get that stupid fucking XCOM badge icon and a blank screen while spending almost exactly the same amount of time on loading times, not to mention how they half assed it to try and improve performance so now all transparent surfaces look like pixelated obnoxious dog shit I swore was a bug. Firaxis really makes some great games and XCOM2 is quite possibly the only triple AAA I bought at full price on release period, but man did they fuck that up with WOTC. Probably the only game I'm going to ever actually do that again and grab it when it's not on sale is Wasteland 3, and possibly also Disco Elysium and VTMB2 if my machine has a chance in hell at running it

God, i'm SO with you for this point. I was pissed of by that shit almost from the start of the game, you could only guess what sheperd actually says. O wait, sometimes he even said something entirely different than the thing you picked, alas for me.
And for the moral-stuff, after playing ~10 hours and reading that you MUST choose a side and/or you CANNOT even answer with the other side pissed me off. Heck, i got me a mod where both were at 100% so i could answer how i liked.
What is this shit? If i want to be nice with some npc and want to fuck with another i will do so. But the logic says "nono, you are good/bad, you can't be the other way!
> FNV
You mentioned your way of simply killing almost everything later in game. Funny, was the same expierience for me. At first, i tried to understand the motives for each faction or important person i found and thought about how to handle with em. Later on i just thought fuck, they're all spupid, it's the best otion to clear them from the surface and rule it myself.

Suppose you had to restart your life mostly from scratch. You just got out of jail, or you found yourself without money, family and friends. You might have some marketable skills but your CV is tainted either from the criminal record or for some other reason. What would you do, where would you go, where is life easier for this sort of background?

Countries with a healthy social safety net need not apply, I reckon.

The hardest part is finding a place to stay with cash flow honestly. The problem here at least is that most renters want proof of income if not references from previous landlords and most jobs want a place of residence. This fucks you hard if you're recently homeless or out of jail but I don't know if they literally kick you to the streets from jail, which I wouldnt doubt and is incredibly fucked up because usually getting a job without a certain time is necessary for parole and not getting thrown back in prison.

Basically you're going to have to hustle somehow and deal with other people you may not want to deal with and bullshit your way through both landlords and employers. A lot of bydlo jobs are willing to tolerate certain kinds of criminal records, though a convicted felon for theft is probably going to have a really hard time. I can't honestly say even crime is an alternative because a lot of that needs contacts and at least resources like a getaway vehicle, speaking of which getting a real piece of shit clunker and living out of your car is your best bet although that too requires all kinds of bullshit including getting a license which itself costs money. I think they jacked it to over $80 in this state already. Get rides with someone else at the job, get something in manual labor, groundskeeping, dishwashing things like that until you can afford a place to stay.

In America at least those are borderline impossible settings probably.

What websites does Ernst frequent other than EC?

I used to spend a lot of time on different topic related internet forums and websites but then i got a slave to chans somewhere around 2006 or 2007 and i left the other internet behind.

Nowadays are Nu-EC, Youtube, Wikipedia and, as a guilty pleasure of mine, Reddit the only sites i regularely visit (next to some porn sites)

I have no idea where the hate for Reddit comes from by the way, if you ignore the comments underneath the content there are some pretty fun subreddits.

I was about to link spidr as well. It's one of the handful of projects that I felt obligated to donate to for the public service it provides.

While not perfect, it is amazing for trying to determine the spin of each site and the common truths between them. It's also a good demonstration of how Reuters and AP (among others) provide the kernel of information for most other sites.
I've recommended it to people studying/actively working in journalism, and now I know at least one of them uses it daily to parse the news.

My main complaint is that it's not designed to be used as an archive, so finding equivalent articles months/years later, even just the urls and <title>s, doesn't seem possible. But that's secondary to properly matching up current content.

I adore the works of Richard Wagner and always liked the synergetic music and paintings of Ciurlionis.
Other than that I'll soon get myself a student ticket for the local philharmony and go see a few concerts when I have the money, to delve deeper into classical music and take time for it.

I saw Brahm's German Requiem recently. It was his version for four hand piano instead of orchestra. Pretty good. The soprano movement remains my favourite.

It was prefaced by two Schutz hymns which I liked. I must delve into his oeuvre more

Early Baroque like Monteverdi and Renaissance lute music is nice, later Baroque and Romantic music just sounds too "bombastic" for me, too busy. And I absolutely loathe Wagner. Schubert is my nigga though.

>I'd take that as a mixed blessing. Workplace socializing has a huge chance to be toxic
I also am reluctant to force friendships at the workplace, but for different reasons. Over the years, I worked with several customers in several teams. Almost any time, I met people I got along with very good, and we also met up in private, which was kinda difficult for me to arrange, because I am commuting to work. Still, all that workplace-based friendships almost instantly vanished when our teams dispersed. This has happened several times already, while my personal friends are almost the same than 20 years ago. Since then, I have become wary not to confuse coworkers I get along with good with personal friends. Not that I actively try to prevent it, if it happens, it happens. It's just like it looked like it would happen several times, and a little later it showed that it was all temporary.

I also outright hate it when companies try to force social interactions with team events / teambuilding exercises and stuff like that. It's literally a manipulation attempt to make it more difficult for employees to ask for raises or to quit, because they are more likely to stay in place for lower pay when they have personal ties. I especially enjoy when companies try and schedule these events in my spare time. I thank dog every day for my luck that I can tell them to beat it when they try that move, without too much fear of losing my job (might still backfire some day). I have a hard time understanding why the majority of people these days think that one would like hanging around the people in your spare time that one already hangs around with on the job, and only because one gets paid to do so. That almost seems like an insult to me, like the company is telling me that my social life is so shit that I should be happy to spend more time with my coworkers t. posting on EC saturday evening. And even if people really wanted to do so, they will do on their own account, and need no company support for it.

First start taking your sick leave, never apologise.
Learn to backheel jobs and questions, better you speak to management, this isn't my department ect
Next look at successful people, they always job hop.
Last is simple, embellish your qualifications, job role and experience, apply for new jobs, network, only apply for jobs which are better than your own or 10-15% higher salary.
Realise you will never get a true promotion, ie a higher position they will just give you a title like senior or head, but not give you a written contract, just more work and responsibilities but no underlings.
Start taking extended coffee breaks in other dept rooms, relax in the smoking area, just getting some fresh air, ask for an email before you do someonelse's work, if they don't send you an email don't do it.
Instead of spending 90% of your work time, working, spend 50% working, the rest net-working, looking for other opportunities and kissing ass.
First thing you can do is look for a company transfer or switch to another department.

If you make a good impression by performing well in your duties and manage to become a regular, you will be given more and more tasks over time which will shape your role in the long term.

Work effectively, get enough sleep, teach yourself how to manage stress without becoming an alcoholic and how to not be affected by the remarks of asshole personalities at the office. These things are the key to surviving in the gorborate world.

Do you think that its possible that people can mobilize into war just like before?

I mean i am certainly always afraid that war will happen again but i wanna see how soft people, who sit at a chair 16h a day and are afraid of spiders and roaches, are going to cope with marching and camping and carrying 30kg etc

Also what do you think make people go into war? Hunger? The possibility of hunger in the near future?

This depends on who you're invading and the nature of the war.
A full mobilization, with mass conscription and the restructuring of society, would imply a country is facing a full-scale invasion, or is about to commit a full-scale invasion towards another country of similar size/strength.
If there's a strength disparity, one side will be fighting to the fullest while the other will have civilians whose lives are almost unaffected.
This mobilization also implies that a government has control over a population and has a recognizable authority that people will rally behind, especially if the enemy is someone everyone already hates. A place like North Korea can easily mobilize while Venezuela could not.

In the really old does it actually was true that you could get to loot somebody else's country or citystate in certain times and places. Also in a defensive war like I said total war has existed a lot longer so being invaded by a hostile neighbor really did mean the men would be slaughtered and the women sold into slavery which is the one time it's not needed to lie or manipulate people to fight because it is an existential threat, but typically the ones doing the invading needed to be manipulated.

Also warfare you keep forgetting only steeped breeding disease and pandemics in the last like 80 years thanks to modern medicine. Before that and even as recently as WWI a war meant the civilian population could then enjoy the fruits of a decimating disease killing millions of people although to be fair trade and urbanization had as much if not at times more to do with that and the great bulk of the superstitious and ignorant people probably hadn't fully connected vast movements of people with causing huge disease outbreaks.

Anyone with any sense would not join a war. It is disastrous for the fighting parties involved. The only thing that really benefits you directly in the short term is the same as a pandemic which is so many people can get killed that it frees up jobs and spoils including land that the survivors of the catastrophe can pick over, and that is only if whatever disgusting feudal lord or government allows you to keep it. Otherwise no war is thoroughly stupid and also continually beating back people tends to sink everyone's conditions rather than raising themselves and each other up out of poverty.
