When communicating in English do you sometimes make mistakes because you often see native speakers make them? Which ones get you?

Grammar and spelling mistakes are really common in with native Englishers online, I imagine that must really mess with people trying to learn. Please discuss this topic.

>Since there is no philosophy threda
here it is.

i was lately toying with a little idea and wanted to hear Ernst's input on it.

As you all may know we have a serious problem with plastic pollution. We developed some genetic engineered fungi capable of breaking down plastics and reintroduce the parts into the "normal" biological cycle. I'm not aware of some genetic engineered bacteria capable of doing such, but let's suppose we have some.

would you introduce these into the wild bio-cycle?

I would tend towards "yes". First, let's try to imagine/determine all possible consequences. Ya, yaha. I know impossible task to do so; just look at what fuckery we did to the australian bio-cycle.

I'm slowly reading Anti-Ödipus now, turns out reading on an e-reader works much better than I imagined.
I guess I'm starting to get a grasp on the iconic terms/concepts but yes the writing is somewhat elusive and, well, schizophreny inducing.

Also I read something by Artaud as supplement as they appropriated the "body-without-organs" term from him, and he creeps me out, or rather his life trajectory. Sick and addicted to drugs for most of his life, spending his last years in different asylums, producing some really vile and visceral writings. Nothing of this seems to show in his young face

It might be fair criticism albeit a bit wordy. But in any case I'm aware and have somewhat already grappled with Land's reactionary & antihumanist tendencies (and their dangers)

I had a talk with a lecturer today who does not like postmodernists and we came to the conclusion that one often asks yourself: why this now? where does it come from? You get a vague idea from the machine, but what it is exactly is still a mystery to me to be fair I only read the first pages here and there, anything that the suhrkamp index listed with machine


Phew, did not knew that. I only heard his name getting mentioned when it comes to modernism. Well, not surprising that breaking down barriers and drug consumption go hand in hand. What did you read? Any short things?

>why this now? where does it come from? You get a vague idea from the machine, but what it is exactly is still a mystery to me
It might not be enough to talk about it in an academical context but I think a vague idea is plenty good enough for a general understanding. The source text is likely not lacking in contradictions either so there's not really a way to pinpoint it. I mean it's even the same with most abstract terms such as "capitalism" or w.e.

Just "To Have Done with the Judgement of God" It's quite short: http://surrealism-plays.com/Artaud.html
Bit I think it's really intense, and also finally gave me the in hindsight obvious epiphany of shit ~= consumer goods ~=needless production. I was just reading some random book on entrepreneurship and it freaks me out to a very similar extent when they talk about "growth" and "creating products" etc. and it seems like such trash to me. Then it clicked that trash ~= shit. No wonder people go mad when applying scatological frameworks.

Either it is you or me who has a weird conception about faces showing. But to me his face and foremost his eyes, or better their stare into the hollow nothing, show a very conflicted mind, to put it nicely.

Lipa = Linde

>From a Slavic name like "Lipsk", meaning "place of linden trees"; compare Lower Sorbian lipa. Early spellings of the name in Latin include Libzi, Lipzk and the standard Lipsia.

>"place of linden trees"
neat. the name leipzig originates from slavic "lipsk" indeed. the area is actually inhabited since the neolithic though. in 200 ad it was a (germanic) suebic settlement, romans called it "aregelia", however during the 6th century, after the franks had defeated the thuringian realm, incoming slavs would call it "lipsk". then the franks crushed the slavs/thuringians around 900-1000 again and frankish settlers would rename the fast growing city from "lipsk" to "leipzig" over time. leipzig's university is still called "alma mater lipsiensis".

I have no experience regarding drugs in the industrial scene and I was a little bit into it so far.

Drugs you'll find with Techno people. Punk/Rock/Metal people are also way into booze.

The preamble is definitely a joke, but the flow-chart itself does accurately breakdown how money is made on the internet. Of course even that just lists what you can do, but not how to it.

Funny fact if you wonder, why in Half Life and addons all glasses or black, or have texture of eyes on them - Goldsource engine can not shot transperant surfaces on separate 3d models, only on map brushes. However with adittional .dll-s that was added with retail version of Day of Defeat game, it become possible to do transperant things. All modern versions of goldsource games in stem have this feature, so you can do transperant elements on models for your mod on gldsrc as much as you want.

In case anybody interested - evolution of HECU soldeirs models from Half-Life.

1.Original Half-Life soldier models. Pretty low poly and sometimes pretty funny, I'd say. Black marine guy that smoking is head from cuted model of cool sergant with gatling, when his model was scrapped because was not serious enough for more final desighn concepts. I like original half life faces textures, they drawed in some... kinda strage way. Most of this faces in later games and addons and models will mostly be redone to level when they not recognisable - like barney, for example. For their animations, complections and overall look in-game they always reminded me "ninja turtles with guns"

2.Models from Oppsoing Force - OF, since it centered around soldeirs, redesighned them in slightly more high detail and there also much more variation exept this four, like two guys (medic and engeneer) I posted above. Possibly, the best model varaints in my opinion. Yes if you get close they slightly done in different style from way valve did original HL1, but this is in all aspects really better - more detail, more elements of equipment that much more logically look like some real life military equipment, and faces look like faces, but yet that still have proper detalisation to not be out of place from Half Life level of detail and engine capibilities.

i like the classical and romantic periods the least, although i do like schumann a lot, his piano works in particular. i prefer early music and neue musik. minnesang, renaissance, baroque, expressionism, serialism, musique spectrale, musique concrète, minimalism etc. bach and vivaldi remain my absolute favourites, loved both as a kid already.
