Are the skeksis from The Dark Crystal an antisemitic caricature? Think about it: they’re beaked, hunchbacked, lecherous, alien schemers who drain the life force of innocents in dark rites (blood libel) to maintain their power. They are rootless interlopers from another realm who have seized control of an autochthonous civilization through cunning and treachery. Basically all of the tropes are covered here. Does this matter? Are observations like this paranoid or do you think a clear line can be drawn between characters like this in sci-fi/fantasy and historical portrayals of Jews in western art and culture?

Tolkein's dwarves were supposed to be like Jews, and in spite of being otherwise a good race they were described as only being weak to greed and no other sins. Also the grey dwarves were mistaken for animals by early elves and hunted to extinction as vermin, but ended up acting like animals because of this and totally deserving of genocide (Mim in Narn I Chin Hurin was used as an analogue of the dwarf in Niebelung that started the whole fuckup).

Ferengi where the only thing that made ds9 worth watching for me, honestly TOS is the only Star Trek I like, but I would pay real money to see a spinoff that was just about a Ferengi merchant ship.
No. 38155 Kontra
but yeah I kind of agree that the Ferengi were not the most Jewish race in ds9, considering that Bajor is an obvious metaphor for Israel with the Cardassians being Nazis.

Anyone know why the french are so rude to tourists?

Whether it be security, waitstaff, retail store employees or french people on the street.

Is it because they are so sick of having so many ignorant foreigners in the country? I personally could not fathom treating another person the way french routinely treat visitors.
No. 38013
France is the most visited country out of nearly two hundred. Tourists are a hard to pin down archetype but the general similarities include; general sheepishness, loud, indiscreet and varying levels of nuisance. Now let's take 18th century Paris and dump every single tourist currently scrounging around right now. The sovereigns would naturally be xenophobic towards others as they feel that their way of life is forcefully being taken away in exchange for a cheap, commodified replica. As per usual, the issue is complex and multi-faceted therefore suggesting a simple solution would help no one, hell, not everyone would be happy with any solution so it's best to consider the greater good.
No. 38043
Even other French think Parisians are the rudest people in the universe.
No. 38044
People in France will only react favorably to your attempts at French if they're already sucking your cock for some other reasons. My mother tried to order in French at a shop in Paris and was angrily told, "If you cannot speak properly you should not say anything at all!" When she came back years later much wealthier, however...

My experiences with the french:

>live in border region, get lots of frenchies over
>dress worse than germans, drive like assholes, in fact I hate the french solely on account of their drivers
Apart from that, the individuals you meet are usually friendly. That said, there was an incident some time ago

>traffic accident, some car hit a truck, however that has happened, probably female driver
>people form a RETTUNGSGASSE, even the border region french commuters
>suddenly, a Porsche convertible from behind
>drives through the Rettungsgasse, just like that
>licence plate with a 75, enough said
If I had noticed earlier, I would have blocked him, because police wasn't THAT far behind him. Only a few days ago I had some asshole overtake me on the highway right before a speedtrap and that retard drove right into it. I guess 120ish, in an 80 zone. That's one thing the EU can do, generalized prosecution, so those fucks would finally have to behave here. And everywhere else.

Greetings, fellow Ernsts.

I was wondering if any of you is a passionate hiker/trekker whatever (still didn't figure out the actual difference). Anyway, if you love to be out in the nature, this thread is for you. Let's share our experiences, good advice, insights and dreams.

As for me, I am rather inexperienced. I was in the infantry for six years and almost all my long-distance walking experience is related to that. The longest distance I would have walked in a day would have been 65 km (totally screwed afterwards) and the longest time I've spent outside without a roof on top of my head 10 days. I do have some survival training but only the bare minimum skills i.e. finding/filtering water, orientation by compass/map and finding food to survive (stress on survive, not feast).

This summer I am planning to go for a 60 days hike of some 1500 km though. I know it's a long shot but I see it as a challenge I am going to undertake. Somehow, travelling on foot makes me feel human. Therefore any insights of more experienced Ernsts are most appreciated.

You can't get into Severomorsk without inventation, same as in many cities on northen parts of region, they all ЗАТО. But well, there a couple places to visit - like first Atomic Icebreaker that was turned into musem. But most worth places is Nature-related, I'd say, so better visit it on car so you can go around region - we have more roads than Karelia do lol. However there is oficial trips from city to Husky park, for example. And Ostrich farms not far from city if you wanna wisit those ones.

First and third pik around Teriberka, coast of Ocean. Second and last one from around here https://www.google.ru/maps/@69.391265,32.0796173,3a,75y,335.56h,81.55t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sDvPRw_e9ku18ePqOtebiHw!2e0!6s%2F%2Fgeo2.ggpht.com%2Fcbk%3Fpanoid%3DDvPRw_e9ku18ePqOtebiHw%26output%3Dthumbnail%26cb_client%3Dmaps_sv.tactile.gps%26thumb%3D2%26w%3D203%26h%3D100%26yaw%3D306.9913%26pitch%3D0%26thumbfov%3D100!7i13312!8i6656?hl=ru&authuser=0 - far from road obviously.

Also thank you. In my region you can find Alaska, Iceland, Scotland, Canada and northen US lol. Sad that I can't find my other folder with many photos. We usualy go in such places for family muchroom picking. Drive on car here and then whole day on foot deep into tundra in search for them. Place on map I showed is very mushroom heavy. Also here for example we found egg of some bird. Already empty, but still.

Wow, thank you for the pictures. I think I'll go on a trip there once I've got a paying job. Maybe start in Oulu, from there to Murmansk and then try to travel by bike from Murmansk back to Finland towards Rovaniemi. Has to be in summer though...

If by bike you mean bicycle I can kind of advice against it since there was cases of crashes with bicycle foreign tourists in my region. Mostly from not very smart ones from japan and korea who decided to go in time of polar night if I remember correctly but still - old soviet roads across rocky hills is far from facy autoban and contain a lot ups and downs, dangerous turns. Road to Rovaniemmi espessialy from Kola following Tuloma river up to western side of Murmashi I can note as pretty dangerous one and there even currently some big constructions happening for some years with destruction of big parts of rocks so it is dangerous mess.
If you want it like motocycle, then well it's okay, Finnish bikers with scary fat faces I seen was pretty happy about that :---DDDD
I also should point out that distances here is not mongolia-syberia tier, but huge between cities and locations, not even in Murmansk region, but in central-northen karelia you may find yourself in middle of forest in hundred of kilomiters without gas station or town on main road. Same goes for road from finland thought like Alakurtti it's most probably crap. And if you follow road to rovaniemi back - there will be no tundra, it's just your typical Finnish pine forest. I can kind of advise to go from Rovaniemi to murmansk and then from murmans to Kirkines, Norway. Maybe with visit of Teriberka - there all your cool tundras, waterfalls, etc.
It's on norvegian road also where diferent alleys and war memorials, with some remained german bunkers somewhere if you interested in all this stuff.
Thought, moutians and parks with Saami, reindeers, huskeys is in central part of peninsula but it's better go to city and go for tourist agency there for a tour here than go by 70km from main road to lovozero in town itself and found out that it's shitty post-soviet dying city lol.

I didn't really want to start thread with topic and just wanted to post in news thread but I guess this is the only sensible place
So apparently DoD is saying that they anticipate climate change being so extreme, so soon, as to have catastrophic consequences within the next 20 years up to and including the total collapse of the US military in its ability to respond to threats and collapse of US infrastructure.

This worries me especially because I've already had multiple blackouts this year. Has anyone else experienced this? And no I don't live in California either

What? Even if so I'm not sure the point you're trying to make.

The problem is national Socialism itself has come to mean NSDAP which is obviously just as much if not more pure cancer than Capitalism and Communism.

Actually what about something not quite Socialistic but sort of and that has religious values? Does anything like that even exist? I guess basically something like what Jesus taught which come to think of it every one of those ideologies rejects more or less.

>Actually what about something not quite Socialistic but sort of and that has religious values?
I think Mormons come the closest in terms of caring for their own like Europeans do.

I'm at the point of thinking that religion is necessary, but not sufficient. Obviously there have been innumerable theocratic shitholes that use the force of God to cow the people in face of the worst exploitative hierarchies. But in the short history of society unmoored from religion, nothing lasting and stable has been built. Except Mormonism. They've managed to reform the worst parts of their faith, while not collapsing into the postmodern feel-good spiritual black hole that defines the rest of American Christianity.

time travelin a bit, it's the only keygen I remember the name of the group. I rarely needed to generate any keys, did not play so many different games.

I once downloaded a pack with hundreds or thousands of them, this is also one (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjdlITCh5XE) I remember, yet I never played Act of War because my computer hardware was not good enough when I was interested in it.

Found this really good youtube channel. The artist outs out short, melancholic pieces akin to a lot of lo-fi hip-hop works.
I came across this through the (in)famous YoutubePoop called Deliver Us, which uses pieces by the artist as a soundtrack.

For the first time in my life, I'm actually considering paying for an album. I mean, if it gives you a panic attack and almost makes you cry, then it's good shit. Basically this is what I seek from art. It should fuck me up and reassemble me. From Dostoevsky to Neon Genesis Evangelion.

Nicht alle Schmerzen sind heilbar, denn manche schleichen
Sich tiefer und tiefer ins Herz hinein
Und während Tage und Jahre verstreichen
Werden sie Stein

Du sprichst und lachst, wie wenn nichts wäre
Sie scheinen zerronnen wie Schaum
Doch du spürst ihre lastende Schwere
Bis in den Traum

Der Frühling kommt wieder mit Wärme und Helle
Die Welt wird ein Blütenmeer
Aber in meinem Herzen ist eine Stelle

Been listening to Pöbel MC since finding them recently through another band (All Against All by What We Feel & Mister X, so the only relation is that they did a release with Moscow Death Brigade a little bit ago and MDB is also kind of hip-hop). Tbh, the new video just reminds me of Kurt from our Bodycount game for reasons that will be obvious to anyone who knows what that implies (the dancing mostly :-D), so I thought I'd post it :-DDD


Dog, we are definitely running that setting again at some point. It's way too much fun to just do once.

Hello Ernst,

Today the topic also, is unironically, very Ernst.

I got hacked browsing the darknet, my Screen/Microphone on the PC and Camera on my phone have been monitored, etc.

Apparently my Browser had been "fingerprinted", whatever that means. By tracking my IP they poached me on a VoIP program on the clearweb as a group and started bullying and gaslighting me.

I also am often sleep deprived and was in a very malleable state of mind at that time, my mind had in order to cope with the situation come up with a reason for why it was happening;

They were trying to help me, I'm a detestable person and they're helping me change.

I managed to snap out of that "Psychosis" the next day but made the mistake of allowing myself to think that the abuse was also a result of my temporarily altered state of mind. Big mistake.

Fuck image orientation, I shall proceed regardless.

kek I enjoyed seeing my old posts, here are the new watches.

1st Rotary black face
It has a 4th dial which spins the tachygraph, I have no idea why.
I like and don't like this watch, since I had a limited opportunity I wasn't going to let this pass, also apart from the rear of the case outside is all black and back to the thick dial, nice to wear with the extra weight, dare I say great this watch will grow on me cost £95-120 can't recall.

2nd Rotary blue face, leather strap
This may be my favourite, but not going to replace the strap just yet, thick dial, like the look of this one, still prefer the one with Nato strap, cost £95-120 mixed up the prices with these two

3rd Sekonda, two tone, black face.
