What is Ernst currently reading?

Also further planning of the EC reading group.

Of course there are. The non-comic-books from fansadox for example. Or the Sandra books by Gord or whatever the name was. Never read any of those, so I can't tell you anything about the writing.

Also, the classic from DeSade, 120 Days of Sodom.

"The killing of Cray Horse" is about much more than the death of greatest Indian warrior of the nineteenth century. Most of the book deals with the events in the lives of the Whites, Indians & Mixed Breeds that lived around Cray Horse in the decades before his death. Most of the story comes directly from the accounts, diaries and letters of the people involved. You get a real feel for what life was like then.

I think that this magazine deserves a thread of it's own. What do you think of it?


And an ironic post:
No. 16339
The author seems to dismiss poltards, mentioning
“The Democrats are the real racists.” “Reality has a liberal bias"

along what an "NPC" would say.
No. 16342
What I meant by that was that on some fundamental level it is intellectual navel gazing to try and find deeper meaning in poltards' buzzword of the month. The fact these memes have been stripped of all contextual meaning should tell you something, and it is why I find ultimately little of value in a person attempting to discuss thirdhand a meme that is being used secondhand bereft of its original meaning. The ultimate product to me of such a discussion is, at best, a very intelligent person often using it as a cudgel or way to shoehorn in what they really want to talk about, which is a grander version of abuse and twisting of meaning of the original meme by certain malefactors. It is reminiscent to me of some adults trying to discuss the meaning of children's internet slang, followed by somebody else trying to write some mini-dissertation on it, all the while not even having a real grasp of the core subject.

It is not a bad article, just somewhat divorced from reality to me.

The concept of slogans, thought terminating cliches, and various other thoughtless reflexive responses are not new. It is mainly an expression of rampant anti-intellectualism.

Thank you for clarifying your point, Ernst.

Did Ernst take part in any internet adventures (examples will follow)? Not just by reading but by playing an active role.
What did you do? Do you still think about it? I still think very often about the good internet times, especially because i have many screenshots saved.

I am going to start with 1 thing here but i have more to follow if people are interested in this thread.

In 2011 i found a german nazi dating site on the internet and out of interest i decided to register myself as a black man called Abadi. Because i found the reactions kinda hilarious i decided to make a thread about it on KC /b/ (which was still good at that time) and a few minutes later they had more fake accounts on the site than they had real ones. It took a few more hours for the site to go down and i don't think it came back again, at least it wasn't there when i looked for it the last time.

That's the story of how i took down a obscure little dating site with the help of Bernd.

It's mind boggling to me that people lived in these conditions so recently in advanced nations like Canada and Australia. From wikipedia:

The Golers are a clan of poor, rural families in Canada, on Nova Scotia's South Mountain, near Wolfville, known for inter-generational poverty and the conviction in the 1980s of a large number of family members for sexual abuse and incest.

The Golers lived together in two shacks in a remote wooded area south of the community of White Rock, outside the town of Wolfville. Like most other mountain clans, they were isolated from most of the residents of the farming district in the Annapolis Valley and most of the nearby towns. The Goler adults, some of whom had intellectual disabilities, had little schooling and rarely worked. The Golers supported themselves on a combination of social welfare and occasional labor at the many nearby farms, supplemented by fishing and foraging for berries and other fruits.[1] The children were generally forced to perform any menial chores (such as preparing food or removing trash). Garbage was simply thrown into the attic, until it was completely filled, and then the adults would make the children haul it all out.[1]

From about 1980, several of the children had attempted to tell outsiders and authorities about the abuse they suffered, but were disbelieved and returned to their family who punished them.[1] In 1984, one of the children, a 14-year-old girl, revealed the details of a long history of torture and abuse (physical, sexual, and psychological), to a school official. According to further details uncovered by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, this abuse and forced incestuous relationships had been taking place for multiple generations. As the case was investigated, authorities learned that a number of Goler children were victims of sexual abuse at the hands of fathers, mothers, uncles, aunts, sisters, brothers, cousins, and each other. During interrogation by police, several of the adults openly admitted to, and even boasted about, engaging in many forms of sexual activity, up to and including full intercourse, multiple times with the children. They often went into graphic detail, claiming that the children themselves had initiated the activity.[1]

Units of prisoners generally known for excessive brutality, but still effectively a combat formation.

Also, funny you point out others' stupidity while calling for action that trashes the morale of combat forces even more and places logistical burden on your chains for minimal strategic benefit. Tbh, you are very lucky there isn't a eugenics program like you want. Might end badly for you.

Confederate prisoners make great mine detectors.
No. 16122
That move was less about mine clearance and more about mine deterrence. He knew that they wouldn't booby trap their own men, so he made it a choice between doing exactly that or putting up no traps. It's different to walking prisoners over mines just to clear them, and even more different from doing it to your own people.

How are we able to actually see sizes of groups up to a certain threshold?

For example, when you would have to count bottles in crates, I bet that you will use groups of 3. You don't have to count that the groups are allways 3 items but know it pretty much apriori, even if we would use another model where you had to count randomly oriented spheres in a rather high packing fraction. Your only problem would be to get confused by the blurry boundary of your chosen group.

This got to be some kind of algorithm. With a group smaller than n where n is determined by your talent 'seeing' groups we are certainly able to kind of track sizes of item-groups, but when n gets bigger, we have a buffer overflow and have to start to count manually again.

How brain works???
No. 16157
Oh. Well.

I don't know shit about neurology, but I know something about pattern matching. Determining amount without counting is probably pure pattern matching.
You see a continuous blob in your vision, and there's a learned neural pathway somewhere that signals "blob -> object". Similarly, when you see several blobs, there's probably a pathway from your eyeballs that connects the neural structure in your mind that represents a number. So you see four blobs, and your mind immediately evokes "4" without thinking.

And I imagine you could extrapolate that to counting rows and columns as well. Unconscious multiplication, simply because seeing certain visual patterns immediately sends a signal to a part of your brain that holds certain numbers.

t. bullshit expert
At least, those are my observations from lifetime of playing video games, learning the game to the point where some blurry pixels in the corner of my vision activate a complex sequence of responses that would be impossible to do consciously that quickly. ("blurry group of pixels - flick hand towards it -> click -> headshot").

It was always a soulless shitty forced meme, like the plastic knockoff garbage made in China of memes, and was deliberately spammed by a few idiots who were so pathetically desperate in their lives that they recognized even their own e-culture was dead so they tried to force absolute senseless garbage. It came about at the exact moment KC was finally terminal. Somehow a bunch of the utter fuckwit cattle that came to inhabit the site kept using it. It survived for another 2-3 years purely on it's own inertia before admins finally put the site out of its misery. I actually personally use that as a warning sign that this person is an idiot or shitposter, nearly on the level of anyone saying "cuck" of being an idiot. To me personally, it is the perfect embodiment of the anti-EC: unoriginality, herd instinct, superficiality, embrace of stupidity. I have never saved that image.

The term orthodoxy for any christian church refers to the Nicene Creed and the Council of Nicaea.


It always means a church is in accordance with the findings of this Council and as it has been laid down in the said Creed.
