Lately I've been listening to my (quite bloated) music collection on random again, and this pop-punk tracked popped up:

Gambling is really big over here, all Chinese are prone to gambling addiction.
Gambling is also illegal in China and HK.
That doesn't stop them having Mahjong houses, and Gov allowed betting shops, a race course in Happey Valley and Casinos in Macao.

I was really disappointed by it but then again I went to probably a shitty, smelly beach in Santa Monica at night. The Pacific intimidates the shit out of me by its sheer size though. You can look at one whole side of the planet and basically it's nothing but that ocean.

The size adds to the appeal. On one hand it almost feels only one barrier stands between you and the other side. On the other hand, the scale is dwarfing, especially at night and when you look at the city in comparison.
I've never been to California, and not a lot of beaches in general so I can't compare. I can only really compare it to places like Ica, which are generally prettier. Still, in Lima itself you have conventional beaches along with cliffs, which attract people who want a seaside experience but don't want to deal with beachgoears or sand.
Went to a museum all about electricity. They had an exhibit where you can power some lightbulbs with a bike. My pedaling can only light three of them though.
Also in Barranco you can find art shops. This one has a mural by Jade Rivera. I bought a few prints but I can't find them.

From winter 2016. For comparison's sake here's some more seaside images.
Some areas don't have beaches but they do have these rocky miniature peninsulas where people just stand and take in the ocean.
Some cliffs are popular destination spots. There's one where it's said a monk threw himself into the ocean. Some guy reenacts this frequently, lunging into the sea and climbing back out. Unfortunately I wasn't able to take a good shot of him.
Little guy wants to go the city.

Why don’t we just euthanize old demented people instead of putting them in facilities? Clearly no one wants to live in such a state anyway and this sort of care is extremely costly. It would be more humane and economical to just end their suffering. Many families are ruined financially from having to pay for such accommodations, and for what? So the empty shell of a loved one can be entrusted to strangers and forgotten about, only to expire eight years later of pneumonia? Why not have a little moral courage, spare everyone the trouble, and give the poor bastards a merciful death? I don’t know if you’ve ever been in a facility that primarily houses people with dementia, but let me tell you they’re grim places.

In earlier days, people would just eat and drink less and less and their family would figure they can't force them and let them die.

The problem is that nowadays people think they must do everything to fight death, while simultaneously not caring about each other at all.

Does a person require greater care than gentle reminders to eat and drink without actively requesting it? Yes? Well, do so if you are very invested for some reason, but it's not required anymore.

Anyone feel like Varg got it right all along?

I see the climate events and how our countrymates react. In spite of our country being lucky enough to, most likely, not being negatively affected by a temperature increase of several degrees.

Of course civilization is heading into the often recited abyss. It should have been obvious that the reliance on ever-increasing technological advances leads us nowhere.

Still, the average climate-aware Austrian acts like his car was the sole reason for Indians dying of thirst and will spend the remaining time in normalcy making it as awful as possible for himself, all while deciding not to reproduce FoR tHe ClImAtE.

Yes, civilization as it is now is probably doomed. There is nothing we can do about it. However, people are literally losing their minds about it while being completely blind to what this means for the future.

I doubt that Varg and his family will suffer severe consequences even if the climate crashes completely. And they will probably prepared to shoot the southern horde trying to take over the northern lands (as will every European country when push comes to shove).

No, destruction is something that neoliberalism and capitalism is very, very good at averting. It has been tried in many ways and the outcome almost always seems to make them stronger.
Look at how the punk movement tried to fight capitalism and how capitalism has now integrated so many aspects of it that nobody raises an eyebrow when they see a $5 T-Shirt with an anarchist symbol printed on it, manufactured halfway around the world in a sweat-shop.

The problem is not that nobody tries to fight it, but that it's so damn difficult to do anything that has a lasting effect.

> there are two main parties
Incorrect. You're too into this Seppo idea. Australian government has always had several parties in the parliament. In fact our current government is a coalition, primarily made up of the Liberals and the Nationals (former Country party), the very notion that you completely forget about our third major party just goes to show that you're a completely ignorant city-dweller or a Queenslander (where the Liberals have been completely subsumed by the Nationals since they don't have any support.)

The Nationals have 10 seats in parliament, the Liberal National Party (Which is just the Queensland branch of the National party) has 23 seats, while the Liberal party only has 44. 33 vs 44 to make up the very slim majority government of 77 seats? Its a very clear coalition government, its not some either-or situation.

> so nobody can have an actual agenda because otherwise they'd implode
In what world do parties not have different factions? You make out that these factions are somehow worthy of being a separate party? Yeah, there are a few people vying for leadership positions, but that doesn't really even divide them too much. The PM isn't even in the constitution, the party that forms government can choose whoever to be the public face of it, they don't even need to have a PM. It happens in minor parties all the time, its just completely out of the public eye because they've only got a single seat and we vote for people, not parties, so it is pretty much irrelevant.

Well, firstly, the word "durak" isn't affectionate at all, it just means "fool", nothing else. There's a variant "durachok" which could be translated to English as "silly" and it can be used affectionately.

Secondly, "durak" is a masculine gender noun, so a female won't be called like that, unless it's her surname or something. Feminine gender variant of "durak" is "dura", and in case of "durachok" it is "durochka". There's also "duryokha", which is not as cutesy as "durochka" and a bit rude, but still more friendly than just "dura".

Oh yeah right I forgot about that. Come to think, me not using gender forms for fucking everything is probably an equivalent to Slavic article dropping.

>Well, firstly, the word "durak" isn't affectionate at all, it just means "fool", nothing else.
Meh I know what it means. I figured it could be an imaginary play on the soldiers gathering together for card games and finding out some story about her childhood background while drinking and playing cards, with the card tattoo and being a teasing in joke thing for the squad. Plus I simply like that word.

I would definitely agree. There is a lot of masterful engineering and design that took place under the Fascist regime. Some of which is even tied to Fascist thought. I have a real thing for the Lingotto factory. It is spectacular in how it harnesses movement in its design as production spirals upwards, culminating in its ultimate expression of speed. The testing track on the roof. Then you have the Italian arms industry. Known in part for its abortions, but also known for some of the finest pieces in Europe at the time. The Beretta 38, many of their fighter aircraft, their naval vessels. All were really quite advanced and happened in industries that were very much under the thumb of the authorities. I think that there is something of an influence there, though the demise of the intelligent fascist is pretty well documented. You can see it especially in art as time progresses. Italian Futurism that remains in touch with Fascism gets increasingly stagnant and retains an aesthetic without the soul, it's very prevalent if you follow the career of Marinetti before and after the Racial Laws of 1938 for example.

Mussolini was noted as a flip-flopper even by his contemporaries who likened him to a vulture swooping on targets of opportunity. He himself made the interesting but unconvincing argument that in changing times, the regime must change and not be bound by rigid ideology. It pays lip service to the theory of Fascism without actually addressing it.

Accelerationism is meant here as focused on the future. You clearly went not very deep into accelerationist territory, Nick Land might be a key figure but todays accelerationism is an umbrella term under which many ideas gather and insofar that homogenity is lost. Speed is not acceleration, destruction vs. navigation, are just a few aspects to point out you are making it yourself too easy here. They all have in common that the future is very important tho. And lastly, it's way to young to give a clear vision of what it is supposed to be, the concept itself might be a process in constant vibration and change, open to contigency and not settled now (or never?). So basically accelerationism as a term is as unclear as postmodernism, might be even worse.

>I think one of the only solid futurists was actually Adolph Hitler. Everyone else, fascists and Communists included, ended up being too wrapped up in trying to preserve and romanticize something about the old way of life.
>preserve and romanticize something about the old way

They all were interested in technology, they all had prestigious building plans, even the 1930s US had the Hoover Dam. Look at the Art of Nazi Germany and it's kitschy cultural artefacts, the presentation of family and rural life.

Another point that needs to be made is that the pervasiveness of Fascist thought wasn't high. Education was poor, and in many places things didn't even remotely change except for when the Dvce showed up, at which point the local leader put on the uniform and made himself look like a Fascist. There was also a general identification with Italy rather than Fascist Italy among the citizens. In bad cases, they went as Catholic before even Italian. It wasn't a regime that held its population under its sway. It's hard for something to be coherent when it's trying to keep an incoherent thing stable. It's why so many Italians helped the Allies after they landed in Sicily. The best way to save Italy was to not get it blown away against a foe that they didn't think they could beat. Just something else to consider when looking at the strange history of Fascism in Italy.
