Only journalism or journalism schools? Strange, I heard humanities also have good chances, and I even know people who studied and study humanities who had internships at newspapers. It's a local one? I think it has to be has you mentioned local politics.

>In the end my future boss on time then said to me was that I'd be expected to bring in my own ideas and to get to know the local politics a bit better before I start the internship and that at the end I should publish an article. I should slowly start reading the two guides about journalistic writing I got laying around here btw.

Sounds challenging, did your future boss said you should read some or was it your own idea?

I know that last job Chinese jewed you, but I bet they would write you a reference letter, better yet allow you to put their name on a reference letter you wrote, might give you a boost when you apply for a new job.

On my last two days of annual leave, I think my maid :), one visit a week either smokes or has smoked in the toilet while cleaning it, it could however but thousands of other chinks how smoke, hot work or burn stuff for their dead.
I don't need a beer but am going to have one anyway resisting the urge to do tramadol.

I bought tobacco plant stems in Taiwan, but wasn't allowed to bring them back, you bite off the stem and chew it a little and but it under your lip like dip, bet If I try I can find some more in HK.

Also bought 3 bottles of Whiskey, might post them later, good prices for all of them.

I have no appetite at all.
Ate pizza yesterday morning and a rasberry biscuit.
Maybe 5 beers.

Today not eaten anything but had two coffees today.
Not been getting drunk as have to go back to work, idk what's wrong with me however last time I forced down food I got rather ill for a few days.
I always like to eat food because drinking + not eating = bad news.
I have narrowed it down to alcoholism, the heat/dehydration or some stomach upset.
I did over eat the last few days, lots of spicy, fried foods and lots of meat and sushi.

Will try a chicken/potato curry, but I have no curry powder/paste so might have to buy one or just throw together two ramen packets instead.
More likely to wait until 8-9pm see what my wife brings back and just hit the booze instead.

Somewhat this. We recently had an election here and it was fucked up really. Then I watch an interview with two politicians from the European parliament one liberal and one from our "nationalistic" party SD, you might have heard about them. What struck me the most is that even the SD guy sounded reasonable. I might not agree with him but he didn't sound insane. It appears like the EU is where political parties send their politicians that are to good to keep at home because that would upset the balance of insanity. Sort of like how all smart people get sent somewhere in A brave new world.

I realized some years ago that I have more in common with some people out in Europe then I have with some of my neighbours and I can tell that if my neighbours where in charge there would be no future for the European Union or Sweden for that matter.

Where do you get these nonsense?
People are electing Fidesz over and over again because socialists and liberals successfully threw away their credibility between 2002-2010 (there are some support for real socialist ideas - both Fidesz and Jobbik use such ideas but rarely those who claim to be socialists - but liberals will always remain marginal power) and the Jobbik (and now Mi Hazánk) is too radical for them, they are basically considered as fascists and nazis. The large number who don't vote feels these parties aren't representing their ideas at all, they turned away from politics because the are disenchanted by the repeated failures and corruption of the governing parties and not because they resenting democracy.

This statement requires arguments. Has leftism been less mindless in the past? Why does it not affect mindless conservatism or rightism? How does the reactionary spring from the mindlessnes of one specific group but not from others?

I don't think this epidemic has anything to do with political ideology. But I would like to hear your arguments, Ernst.

Glad we have another ween fan here. Ween was a life defining band for me. Got me through some dark times, man. I remember back when dad went flywheel crazy, and began drinking and gambling away everything we had, when we had frequent power outages from unpaid bills, and I was constantly suffering from this overwhelming, torturous, yet strangely addictive mental state between crushing despair and wild inspiration that I would, years later, learn to be something called maniacal psychosis, I would go to the local park at 4 AM, put GodWeenSatan on my Sansa Clip, and songs like I'm In The Mood to Move or Cold and wet would always put a smile on my face. I've got a special relationship with Ween, man.
t. down with the brown

I think both Ween and Spongebob are similar in that you can not resist quoting them in daily life, for your own amusement, even if nobody but you gets it.

i actually had never heard that album of quebec outtakes until recently forgot the name. it was white and blue and looked like quebecs cover. blew me away

tho i guess you could say this is a b-side album.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lEFm_mmlsI
now dont get me wrong, i like the polished stuff too, and their music definitely needed that to really shine. but as a musician, those early tapes are something special. everyone who plays makes demo tapes like that. super raw, super individual, seemingly devoid of outside inspiration, but rarely are they as good as that one.
feel the same way about the pod too. they were hardly conscious while recording that album and it sounds like literal shit, but those songs man...

I really love the mollusk outtake album, if only for that slower version of Ocean Man. I wish they'd kept it. unfortunately, no solo.

I would classify Ween as the fabled genre of new sincerity. It's sincerity disguised as irony. They might seem like they're mocking the various genres they parody at fist, but every single song they make to capture a certain genre is a sincere tribute to that genre, behind the silliness.

It's amazing how they can make a song named "she fucks me", with lyrics like "pork roll egg and cheese" genuinely emotionally moving: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lr-20b6_3rg

Funnily enough I've done both my fair share of LSD and spent a lot of time around cats but not at the same time. Still I very well understand what you're talking about but to me it's a mere illusion caused by the drug.
Back then when I took acid for the first time I wanted to go on a rave with a friend. After I prepared everything and injected the tab he called me that he couldn't come so I spent my night homr alone. Unsure of what to do I turned on my computer and started watching a famous german late-night call-in show (pic related) like I used to do in those times. At some point the moderators neck became inhumanly long and more and more he started to appear as me as some kind of malicious lizard. If I remember it correctly there even was something wrong with his tongue. I probably don't have to mention that this night's following trip wasn't too nice.

I think this is somewhat relevant.
Not sure how applicable to real life their simulation is, but it seems to conclude that welfare, although inefficient, is the only way towards meritocracy.

When you have a set of random values, the only way to get the ones you need is to iterate through all of them. Makes sense to me, at least theoretically.

Now, the quality of education offered in institutions, and the validity of the whole concept of institutionalized social mobility is another issue entirely.

It won't get fixed and I'll tell you why it's not going to get fixed. America is a really shitty late Capitalist dystopia that runs on nepotism. Nowhere near Oriental style nepotism the Russians and Chinese are known for, but it's still pretty bad. We just had a case where a bunch of wealthy parents simply tried buying admissions for their kids, which was shocking mainly because of their laziness when we already basically have ways to legally do this it's just they tried to bribe admissions directly https://www.usatoday.com/amp/3261279002

The main reason to send your kids to school is hoping they make friends with children of other well to do families which is basically the same style of trying to make sure your kids are friends with oligarchs as Russia does.

Meanwhile all the rest of us are expected to do shittier and shittier things. The number of people with college degrees working as waitresses is astounding. They've put additional hoops in like unpaid internships, where you're expected to work totally for free for 6 months to a year for some oligarch right after graduating with massive loan debt and somehow supporting yourself in Hope's that your 6 month voluntary slave labor turns into a paying job at some point.

These are some sorts of things that are broken and aren't getting fixed. It runs just close enough to meritocracy to keep people from openly revolting and still defending the system stubbornly and giving free work and tons of money that filters up to the oligarch class. Those who are wealthy and well connected are pretty much immune to the consequences of their actions. No matter how retarded and how big of an asshole you are, you and your kids are safe at the top. Lower down one minor mistake or accident outside your control can cost you your home and your freedom.

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 have found one possible resolution of the problem, when you feel about the post on the anonymous imageboard that it could be yours, but it's not yours and vice versa.
You choose a community out of similarity of minds. And imageboard is a kind of community. Thus, similar thoughts float in the mind ether, which could be yours and not yours at the same time.
