On US Bases perhaps, no chance of ever getting in.

I want hashbrowns and sausage or a steak with egg and toast for breakfast and a delicious pancake with whipped cream and some sirup or choco or whatever is put on it. Fucking hell, the closest you can get when it comes to non-frenchy breakfast here is British breakfast. We don't have many chains anyway and when you go to a café the food is way too fancy, I want tasty trash tbh.

Good for you. I've only voted in national elections, which is strange because those are the ones where your vote has the least impact. The smaller local stuff is decided by much thinner margins, so you can feel like you were heard, and potentially even make a difference.

The Waffle House isn't fancy, but for a greasy diner they make pretty good food. I've only been there a few times, and it was always really early or really late. Maybe it's common for some people to visit regularly for lunch and such, but I always thought of it as a waystation when you just need a place to crash.

Lot of buzzword drivel that equals just connecting dots, which is nothing convincing, sorry.
Anyway the last sentence is interesting as insofar as you could make a divide of indentificable and non-identificable, clearly imagebaords belong to the latter and are a problem in a logic that seeks to make everything identificable. Big Data is also part of the state and not just relevant for commercial interests. the state is concerned with security and therefore engages in biopolitics. KC and such could be identified as a threat, since you don't know it, you cannot really identify its elements.

I'm techno sceptic. When it comes to freedom of expression and even propeert rights it will be worse and worse, because of big tech giants.

I'd actually like them to. I don't know that they realise it but I'd like them to, at least.

I'm not a huge tech consumer myself. I actually don't buy tech products like tablets, laptops, anything which is on the market, except for a few very expensive watches which I wear for various reasons. So I don't think I can buy a £1000 luxury watch on a normal price basis.

Maybe I'm way of thinking too much. It's very easy to get on the bandwagon of tech companies. They don't have an obligation to support free speech. I understand that they might. I know a bunch of them who are really passionate about free speech. It's pretty funny that as far as I'm concerned there is no such thing as the 'right' way to criticise Google, or Apple, Microsoft or Google

Reversed electrodialysis (RED) is a method of extracting electrical power out of salinity gradient energy between seawater and freshwater. It functions similar to any other electrochemical method, effectively it is a fuel cell that uses ions from seasalt as fuel. Ions are exchanged through selective membranes, so that cations and anions flow in opposite directions, effectively creating an electrical current that is balanced by opposite-equal flow of electrons through the electrical circuit it feeds.
How much energy is available for harvesting this way?
>In the Netherlands, for example, more than 3,300 m³ fresh water runs into the sea per second on average. The membrane halves the pressure differences which results in a water column of approximately 135 meters. The energy potential is therefore e=mgΔh=3.3*106 kg/s*10 m/s2*135 meters ca.= 4.5*109 Joule per second, Power=4.5 gigawatts.
What's Ernst's opinion on this readily available source of energy?

Seems like you need a small house full of machinery to produce the same power as a car battery.

Yes, it's not a technology that works on small scale... but it might be a viable alternative industrial energy source if you have a river you can utilise.

So if you were able to redirect every drop of water that reaches the shores in the netherlands all you get is about 1 nuclear powerplant?

I have serious doubt in the practicality on a greater scale. How are the Nerherlands supposed to put a membrane between the land and the sea? Maybe they could put a membrane over one or some arms of the Rhine delta, but that would cover just a percentage of the supposedely 3,300 m³ fresh water/4.5 gigawatt potential. Also I see a problem with keeping that membrane free from debris and penetration by same debris.

As practical applications ocean power plants that generate energy from waves and tidal
power plants that generate power from tidal streams seem to make more sense.

Given that higher salinity provides higer energy densities, preprocessing the seawater using solar desalination should provide a higher energy generation per square meter of membrane,
so for the time being my conclusion is Reversed electrodialysis (RED) might rather have a potential for countries that already generate drinking water from desalination, and therefore already produce huge amounts of brine as a waste product of the desalination process
(Arabs, Australia, Israel, Singapore etc.).

Do you know about the "American Nihilist Underground Society"?

"ANUS was started in 1987 by Spinoza Ray Prozak and Chromatic Death, with L.B. Noire, Royal Flush and The Innocent joining one year later. From 1987-1992, ANUS ran a series of highly celebrated free speech/non-taboo bulletin boards that attracted hackers, metalheads, activists and artists.

After several run-ins with the law and others who found the idea of non-taboo/free speech/free thought disturbing enough to censor it, from both left and right, A.N.U.S. regrouped as we tried to find a way to explain our vision. Eventually, the thought process of our founder -- a somewhat unique interpretation of nihilism -- grew into a full-fledged philosophy which we have been trying to explain ever since.

From 1991 to 1995, A.N.U.S. maintained an internet presence through an FTP archive, overlapping a web server from 1993-1996 that was later supplanted by the anus.com domain name. Since 1996, A.N.U.S. has continued growing at its current address and has been busily offending newspapers, governments, wikipedia and keyboard warriors alike." - http://www.anus.com/zine/about/

If you don't know about ANUS you are a either a zoomer or a normie.

ANUS is what you get when you mix Varg Vikernes with Metal fedoras. Metal fedoras autistic enough to have made a huge ass library about metal bands, one of the first (if not the first) comprehensive catalogs on the internet of such scale.

All in all there are plenty of articles which are very spot on and are good reads on their own, but you will also find many that are either 3edgy or just tryharding.

Honestly it am(us)azes me that the site is this alive and well.

What I find most offensive about that thesis is that they eschew or decry metal that actually IS influenced by classical music (neoclassical metal, "shred" metal, Power Metal, bands like Children of Bodom) and instead force some meme that just isn't true, that Morbid Angel and Darkthrone have something in common with Mozart. There were even reviews of death metal bands making references to "sonata form", it was just cringy as fuck.

AQUINAS ON TRUTH

The following passages from Thomas Aquinas “Summa Theologiae” constitute something very close to that which, in the terms of modern philosophical logic, would be called a “theory of truth”. In the course of his presentation of objections and responses in this section of the Summa, that is to say, Aquinas generally avoids simple theological platitudes and sets out to provide a relatively coherent account of the fundamental nature and meaning of truth.

Aquinas view of truth, as is the case with so much of his philosophy, is obviously deeply influenced by Aristotle, whom he refers to throughout the Summa simply as “The Philosopher”.

reactionary forces aren't any better either. In fact, all I could hope for is the two completely destroy each other. Both sides murdering each other until no one is left but varying strands of democratic and libertarian viewpoints is the best possible outcome. Nothing left but freedom loving people who value honesty and decency. Reactionaries should be lined up against a wall and shot just as much as the sick fucks who are the reason why that video even exists with those kids. As a matter of fact those two sides basically only exist because of each other and as a reaction to each other to mutually descend into further levels of faggotry. Let them both be utterly annihilated.

Man, why old school programmers and developers (Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, Linus Torvalds, Bill Gates and those 2 guys who made C) have much better reputation and reception than new age ones (Larry Page, Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos and etc)?
