I found an old vintage laptop that’s huge, a Toshiba 6600c. But it wouldn’t turn on so I opened it up to see if there was anything wrong and found the power supply was 240v. Did old laptops use this much power?

> Why cars don't get as cheap as laptops do.
Because they are way more complex and use much more material? Here, you get a tiny new car for 14 k€ (and if you want e.g. a station wagon with some nice features, you can easily pay two or three times that price), while you can get a used, road-legal car for approx. 1000 €, but it doesn't get much cheaper than that.

A car consists of quite a bit of metal, so even if it is defunct as a car, you can still remove the still working parts and sell the rest as scrap metal and earn some money. This sets a lower floor on the price.

And about upkeep, yes that is expensive everywhere. When my parents sold the station wagon, I was curious how expensive a car would be for me and found that that particular one would have cost me 100 € per month for insurance alone, my dad said that a small car costs roughly 300 € per month (though that also included fuel, repairs and deprecation). A fellow student paid something like 250 € per month for his car -- "Still cheaper than moving to the city," he said.

> 100 € per month for insurance alone
sorry, meant "insurance and taxes." And the insurance would have been quite cheap for that model compared with other cars.

One of your best for sure. You seem to be developing quite a cozy, unique style of your own.

Thank you!

Dunno if I can say it is unique since it comes from me looking at another artist and trying to understand his logic. Often I just sit and draw with the face of this dog from the meme "I don't know what I'm doing". Thank you for your kind words, tho I don't think anybody should be envious of me, a person who achieved nothing in life yet lmao

I think the hazy yet saturated coloring makes an interesting contrast with the classic comic book inking. Reminds me of the color work in The Killing Joke a bit, very evocative. I think comic books should either be black and white, or super colorful, period.
I'll do one tomorrow.

Negative identity formation works on both ends. As the mainstream gets more puritanical and aggravating to non-conformists, non-conformists begin to define themselves more in terms of their opposition to the mainstream.

Good morning people.
I need quick Russian help today.

I want to say:

PersonX, thank you, you are the sunshine of my life.

I thought like this
X, большое спасибо, солнечный свет моей жизни

but discovered that Russians use joy of my life which translates to this:

X, большое спасибо, радость моей жизни

Which one is correct?

[Show 1 more line]

No. 60325
Allright thank you.

It can sound awkward, as sunshine was meant to be a wordplay or a reminiscence to this "moon of my life" stuff from game of thrones. And that is why I also have жизни in it.

In general it is aimed at my gf and will go in the acknowledgement part of my master thesis, but in cyrillic so the others who read it wont know (immediately) what it means.

свет means light/bright here, correct? And if солнечный is too awkward/overthe top, I will stick with
большое спасибо, ты радость моей жизни

No. 60326
>свет means light/bright here, correct?
Yep, "the light of my life". "Солнечный" doesn't really fit the mood of the phrase, because in most contexts it is closer to the word "solar" in English, so it turns an emotional personal sentence into dry scientific-sounding one (think "solar panel", "solar radiation" etc.).

>I will stick with большое спасибо, ты радость моей жизни
Yeah, that should be best if it's for a gf.
No. 60327
Okay, many thanks for your help, joy of my thread.

That's Western lack of holistic, perspective because it is truncative rather than integrative. Partly it's a problem with Western scientific methodology itself through needing controls and reproducibility but is also a mindset thing. It is the mentality of seeing legs and breaking it down to segments than seeing how not just the butterfly works as a whole but also how the butterfly itself is only an extension of interedependent systems. It is the result of Western individualism mentality. I'd even go so far as to argue that it's rooted in Abrahamic theological views of things trying to trace it back to its true origins, and that it could be somehow rooted in out linguistics if not vice versa.

It's something that drives me crazy about Western science, which is very much a not seeing the trees for the forest type of a mindset and is why only recently we have begun working on superior theorizing such as systems and chaos theory to explain why and how dynamic overlapping and interconnected systems work, like say climatology, meteorology, the carbon cycle, geological records etc. This makes a lot of Western moderns complete and total ass at understanding things like economics, climate change, meteorology, and pandemics because they are solely using inferior linear thinking of, at best, point A goes to point B which leads to outcome C, if they even are capable of thinking that far ahead. This leads them to being perpetually surprised and ignorant about a great many things the average person should've seen coming from miles away, like say how climate change is directly leading to our highest level national security threats in the very near future, or why neoliberal globalism is a pants on head retarded ideology. They might eventually figure out it is a bad thing eventually, but usually not until it is already happening to them, and certainly not why X is a bad thing let alone how a bad thing like X could possibly happen.

The problem with such a top-down approach is though that by observing the system as a "whole" it's easy to jump to the wrong conclusions because you explicitly didn't even try to get to the root and thus some effect you see might be caused by something you don't know yet, yet you still have to explain it.
Also, you're talking about "western science", as is there were any other kind. Do you think the chinese who invented black powder did some holistic mumbo jumbo calling their gods and considering the socio-economic processes leading to coal and sulfur mining and then got the solution presented? No, it was trial and error, just like everyone else before and after them. The reason why it's the way of doing science is because it's effective and through the controls and reproducibility mindset can also stand to review. If it can't be reproduced, it is my duty, as a scientist, to question it.
There just ARE some things that you can't completely handwave away on a cultural basis. Take striking martial arts for an example. A punch is a punch, no matter if it's boxing, muay thai or whatever kind of kung fu. Why? Because humans are, despite all superficial and cultural differences, still made up of the same kind of bones and therefore there is, indeed, a right and a wrong way to punch. And the right way just developed independently from each other because it's directly connected to the human physiology. Same with music. Making sounds in an organized way is also something that has developed among all humans. Even the aborigines who have, in their thousands of years of history, merely invented little more than a stick, have also invented a hollow stick you can make really cool music with. How would you approach that in a "holistic" way? You can't, you have to go granular, right into the human mind.
