Here's a thread where Ernsts may share their dreams.

Mines are mostly boring, mildly erotic where a girl that I used to know or not rejects me before or after sex. But I have the luck to dream a lot, so sometimes there are strange pearls.

A couple of days ago I dreamt of being in 2018, it was a very weird dream and I've never had a dream of this kind before. I knew it was 2018 because I had a computer in front of me and I could check the date. Very weird dream, I've been having some weird dreams like this lately and it's gotten to the point where I am almost excited about going to bed just to see what kind of mind fuckery my brain is capable of dishing out during nighttime.

Okay so I had the most mental dream ever last week and I can still remember it perfectly, it was pretty lucid shit

I was on a ranch and I could see overhead there was fighter jets fighting UFOs in the sky. A UFO burst into flames and landed on my ranch, all these heavily muscled dudes got out and started freeing the others in the wreckage, they kinda looked like a mix between the engineer from prometheus and gay muscle mods from Xcom2. I asked one where he was from, he said Brazil [x] doubt, I helped free another and I asked him where he was from and he looked confused and said Saudi Arabia, I was like you're a shit liar m8 and he said look we're not supposed to be here.

Then all these muscled fags walked off to the north.

A UFO landed and these little people in robes got out, they looked like ewoks but I could tell they were all female and they were real sassy with me when I asked them questions, they all started walking north after the musclebros

By this point my ranch was a hive of activity and a man approached me, he was narrator of the dream if you could call it that and he started talking to me about karma, saying that it was basically a points system. Each person has karma and they gain or lose it based on what they do, he said that Native Americans had +3000 karma to begin with because of the shit they've been through, I was like cool story bro

Semyon Skepakov, a famous satirical singer, has created a new music video about vaccination against COVID-19. Absolutely priceless, as far as the political situation and public opinions in Russia go.


Hello, brethren,
Hello, sistren.

The way you describe it, dying of alcoholism sounds more enticing.
Hell, what would make for a better story?
Another unremarkable life of a third world loser, or a third eorld loser who dies puking up blood and freezing to death drunk on a park bench? I know whose biography I'd rather read.

It's in your interest too, you'll have way more entertaining posts to read on EC.

>I was surprised when I found out there are more unemployed biologists than historians.
Well, biology/life sciences used to be a big meme ten years ago (hurr durr genetic engineering) and probably still is (or will even get more people because of hurr durr RNA drugs), so you get A LOT of absolvents, but obviously jobs are not as numerous, so if you're not one of the best you won't have THAT much choice. With historians and other humanities people have made jokes about the philosopher/taxi driver for decades, so people are more aware of that. (Life) Science still seems to be akin to magic to some people, everyone thinks they'll be the next Craig Venter.
It's the same phenomenon with people choosing paramedic for their civic duty because
when in reality it's mostly driving people to the doctor and back home, treating Kopfplatzwunden im Altersheim, the most infuriating call you can get, and getting a skin rash from all the disinfectant.

>muh fate

It's called rationalization and legitimizing doing the easiest thing in the world: drinking, there is nothing easier than drinking, if I want to describe somebody what is easy it is sucking the bottle like a baby sucking tiddies, both even have the same effect, but one is a poison that ruins you while calming your nerves, whereas the other is calming you through nurture and human warmth/intimacy, a reaction nature "wisely" implanted.
You chose the path of least resistance to your environment in all its individual historic shades (your biography basically). And you chose to rationalize your drinking and you chose to defend your drinking. Why do humans have the capacity to use self-reflexivity, or reflect on their reflexivity to estimate and plan the future through this? Completely useless if everything is running on tracks.

You think that most of these are first world standards? As I mentioned I have an alcoholic friend, he has nothing of what you think is mandatory here. He just doesn't live in Kazakhstan. Your mum doesn't drink, does she? How did she do it? I never said you should climb the ivory tower, I said you should stop drinking. Or is Kaszachstan a nation of alcoholics? Third or first world doesn't necessarily decide if you drink or not. Being poor doesn't mean you have to be an alcoholic. I very well understand that alcohol has a certain effect for you. And it being easy was not a joke or meant in a mean way, because it is true, drinking is easy and it is no surprise that the number of alcoholics is the biggest in Germany concerning substance abuse for instance. It is understandable that you want to numb yourself, but it will turn out horrible in the end. Third world or not. Being miserable and putting yourself into even more misery. Maybe it's because I realized my own twoering misery with substances and once I got rid of them I felt better, I never felt good for long after stopping. But it definitely is better than still using substances to "ease" my misery, because the misery will multiply with substance, regardless how "well" they seem to work. The worst is that you are probably quite deep into the addiction already and stopping won't be easy. If you don't want to stop, you won't anyway, and so far you don't sound like anything near wanting to stop, on the contrary, you try to argue with me that it is a reasonable thing to do.

Still Life (2006)
My second Jia Zhangke after A Touch of Sin, this one with two subplots about a man and a woman who are looking for their estranged partners, and end up visiting a village that is being demolished to allow for the building of the Three Gorges Dam. Some amazing imagery contrasting the vast nature and the tiny people in their decaying village. Some beautiful cinematography, that often flows over tableaus of people in much the same way it does over natural sites. Nonetheless gets a bit tired in the second half, as it deals with all the same social faultlines of poor vs rich, man vs woman etc., and somewhat heavy-handedly at that so it ends up feeling more like festival bait (it did win Golden lion and many others) rather than genuine artistic expression.

Double Indemnity (1944)
Classic noir about an insurance salesmen who plots to kill a client after he falls in love with the latters wife. I'm kind of annoyed by Billy Wilder's verbose and fast-paced dialogues, also not a fan of the trope where a character retells the story through voice-over. Still a fun watch, but not really my type of noir, I like 'em more hard-boiled and violent.

Is there an efficient way to store links, notes, and files? I use a computer at least 10 hours a day, and I have plenty of things to save - books, notes, article links, youtube links, etc. Simply saving them doesn't help because at some point you have too many of them. I'd like to have some kind of app/website to organize my stuff(files, links, notes), with the possibility to give them some hashtags and, maybe, priority or other metadata. Can Ernst recommend me something that suits my needs?

Thank you. Obsidian looks like something I'd like to use. Also, yeah, I should have posted in the technology thread but I forgot about that thread.
No. 66821 Kontra
For books - goodreads & calibre (for ebooks)
For links I just use browser bookmarks (with a couple different folders)
Obsidian I mainly use for note-taking, but I feel like my note collection is too messy and I'm not really using it to its full potential. It takes some time/effort to get into it.
No. 66841
I use Obsidian, it potentially should work for notes and links equally well. But you need to build a system of order in which you can orient yourself. I have a problem myself even though I link entries together I lost sight of my more than 250 notes already, maybe they are just too dispersed, at least I come back to certain entries again and again.
No. 66853
Bookmarks inside folders in the same browser, but without being too exhaustive

Notes in a file in the root of the respective project

org-mode concept (but unless you are ultra hardcore don't use the emacs approach, it's for emacs maniacs that approach). Just consider the org-mode concept

youtube stuff inside youtube. make your own "playlists"

all the different data has to be organized the same way.

Hey guys, version 15 of slackware has been released!

They now support Python3! Also they've adopted Qt5 and PAM!

In Chechnya blood feud against Yangulbaev family happens. Members of this family are kidnapped (not just in Chechnya, but in other regions like Nizhnyi Novgorod too), whole Chechen ruling class publishes threats to "cut off their heads" and meeting organized with burning their portraits. According to Chechen media there are 400.000 male participants on video while entire population of Grozny is 270.000 people.

Dear God I realize why I abandoned this place as a whole. I guess to be fair though I havent seen a single American or German shitpost so there's that, but it's feeling like that day I came back to lurk about Kazakhstan and didn't see shit about it.
NYC for example was filling mass graves. I had a family member living there telling me about the really eerie silence of nothing but birds and ambulances at the start. The fuck do you want them to do, drive by your house in horse driven corpse cart?

Yeah and yet we still have what, only two major brands of chip makers? nVidia, Intel, and AMD make all GPUs.

The whole stupidity of the entire Capitalist order can pretty much be summed up by redteam/blueteam tactics deluding people with mass marketing propaganda, where at least the Soviets knew they are not "free" and didn't trust the propaganda, whereas these bunch of simps are actively fighting for muh team regardless the fact it's all owned by the same people. I heard Jensen is actually Lisa Su's cousin, not sure, but the nepotism is obvious. So instead of one major brand we now have two. Instead of one State we now have different alleged brands all owned by general mills.

Don't know if it's an EU-wide thing, but there was no tariff on the book itself (even though it was expensive) when I got it, the toll-division just evaluated the tariff on it to be 0 HUF and then asked me to pay ~2.50 Deutschmarks for the evaluation process itself.
