Watched it yesterday. I enjoyed it quite a bit since I'm a sucker for escape room scenarios, but it's definitely not a movie without flaws. Some of the writing & acting is a bit questionable, i.e. the maths/numbers stuff was a bit cringe.
I feel like there could've been more rooms with different traps and I guess there could've been just more in general. The movie is rather short after all, I guess due to budget reasons. Besides, it's definitely a fertile ground for various analytical angles, whether philosophical, psychological or ideological. Also, cute grill.

7.8/10 which in 2019 is a 10/10
Would recommend a sympathetic portrayal of a forgotten man.
From the trailer I though it would be full of gore but this is not the case.
The let a single mother adopt a kid in the 70s, is a good angle as most plebs would just accept this.

The Irish Man 5/10
Hot garbage, I may do a critique of this but it is not worth your time.
Common theme, lets shoe horn all these dieing, ageing bits in and because we are washed and it's our one last film.

Forgettable moments, worst fight scene as an OAP DeNiro tries to give a gangster beat down, which as a clique has been done many times and much better.
The CGI and green eyes given to DeNiro, this adds nothing, some make-up choices are questionably poor.

Criminal Shame, not using Pachino and Harvey Keitel more, maybe Pachino as main guy.

I just find the concept of treating pedos by rewiring their brains interesting particularly given the inevitable hysteria that will follow because it would likely also unlock the secrets to "curing" homosexuality. That one fat boomer though is a perfect example of why a majority of pedos should just be stoned to death. I've had the misfortune of talking to..."people"..like that. They sincerely think nothing is wrong with them and try justifying their behavior and saying kids "give them the look" all while knowingly perfectly well they are engaging in manipulative and predatory behavior, and not just impulsive but well planned out premeditated evil.

The idea probably being it would be easier to deal with them if we can cure them rather than them all going underground to be sick fucks. If we can say here's a way to make you normal that might do more good than waiting until one of them is caught doing something illegal and harming others. A bit naive I know. Plus the other problem are the ones who dont want and would refuse such help which is likely to be a good many. Those yeah should get the death penalty.

There is a thread asking about German grammar, but why not make a languages general?

Why aren't you learning a language in your free time? Go for it, it's a good use of time. In a couple of years, you'll have an interesting skill.

I'm currently learning Russian, it's a horrible language crafted by Satan himself. Cyrillic is bad, but cursive cyrillic is just sadistic, it is no wonder that so many people resisted attempts at Russification.

There are three great realms: the realm of corn, the realm of wheat, and the realm of rice. Of these the realm of corn is the greatest.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/food/in-defense-of-corn-the-worlds-most-important-food-crop/2015/07/12/78d86530-25a8-11e5-b77f-eb13a215f593_story.html

An acre of corn yields 15 million calories per year. An acre of rice, 11 million calories per year, but the water requirements are very high. An acre of wheat, a mere 4 million calories per year. So why haven't Europeans adopted the superior staple crop of the New World?

Sugar will fuck you, man. It doesn't really matter so much on the type but here we've just had decades of diet foods containing truckloads of sugar.

You might enjoy this article:
>So began the war on fat, in which Atwater’s calorie calculations were an unwitting ally. Because counting calories was seen as an objective arbiter of the health qualities of a foodstuff, it seemed logical that the most calorie-laden part of any food item – fat – must be bad for you. By this measure, dishes low in calories, but rich in sugar and carbohydrates, seemed healthier. People were increasingly willing to blame fat for many of the health ills of modern life, helped along by the sugar lobby: in 2016, a researcher at the University of California uncovered documents from 1967 showing that sugar companies secretly funded studies at Harvard University designed to blame fat for the growing obesity epidemic. That the dietary “fat” found in olive oil, bacon and butter is branded with the same word as the unwanted flesh around our middles made it all the easier to demonise.

Unprocessed corn is shit. The best you can do with it is cornbread, which only tastes good if you load it up with sugar and honey (and what doesn't taste good with tons of sugar and honey in it?).

But in the place where people developed corn, and had to rely on it as their only staple crop, virtually all corn was consumed after being boiled in an alkaline solution. It transforms the flavor, texture, and nutrient value of the corn into something completely different. The taste is deeper and subtler, and you can form a proper dough out of it.

The traditional primary forms of consumption are the tamale and tortilla. The tamale is a dumpling of wet corn dough steamed in a corn husk or banana leaf. It's usually filled with some sort of spiced and stewed meat, but it can also be filled with cheese, chilis, or even sugary desert fillings. You can make them without any filling though, and back in ye olde Aztec times this was more common. Tortillas are more common as a staple food today, with tamales being more of a main dish in their own right, but it's likely that tamales were actually the primary source of calories during the height of Mayan civilization, as the archaeological record shows scant evidence of the large griddles used to prepare tortillas.

Wait a minute how did I miss this thread

I've always been interested in currency speculation but the markets right now make me think it would be either a really bad time to invest or a pretty good time if you like to gamble. Who would you invest in and diversify your currency holdings with? Me personally I think that yen could in theory be a good investment longterm, but well it's China and they prop themselves up with massive amounts of currency manipulation.

The British pound is lol. I wouldnt invest in that trash until after Brexit and even then I doubt I'd invest a cent into British currency instead of anyone else. Even Canadian dollars would be a far, far wider investment.

US dollars are a terrible investment longterm. I have every confidence in our currency collapsing into nothingness in the medium to longterm future with massive inflation. Thanks to current politics the US is going to become completely isolated with an okayish local industry no matter what happens but frankly I see buying US dollars which I unfortunately still have as being about as wise as "investing" in a new car or computer: it's only certain to depreciate in value. I should note that currency speculation is a short term thing though and not really dependent on the same factors as diversifying your currency holdings. Even still, I would not speculate on anything good about the US dollar but I guess it isn't anywhere near the pure toilet paper that is the British pound right now.

Would it be moral to select embryos for IVF that have lower polygenic risk scores for diseases like diabetes, hypertension, etc.? What if those diseases had epidemiological and perhaps genetic correlations with traits that we are less comfortable with people selecting for? When does therapeutic use become enhancement? For instance, lower cognitive ability in early life is associated with increased risk of late life dementia, as well as increased risk of schizophrenia. Should people be allowed to select on the basis of such criteria?

Just to clarify, I think you are conflating in vivo and in vitro. With IVF there is no "probe into mommy", the embryos are conceived and raised in laboratory dishes for several days, and only after that transferred into an actual womb. Also at this point there are no "skin cells" to speak of, cells aren't that specialized at this point of development AFAIK.

What about ethics in Bioengineering in general? I also sadly realized that it's physically impossible to alter and breed a species of jumping spider that's domesticated and about the size of a dog or cat. If you don't know why it's because due to the nature of insects and arachnids both in terms of their construction and breathing that there's a hard limit on their size. Even a tarantula is quite delicate and a fall from one meter is instantly fatal to them, in fact a fall from one foot can be generally fatal. You can't bioengineer a spider to be that much larger than a modern tarantula.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megarachne
You can however get much, much bigger if you could figure out a way to bioengineer it to be aquatic and able to live mostly or entirely underwater with a different breathing apparatus or some way to basically act like a dolphin and surface to collect more air bubbles before diving to the bottom again.

We had a thread on old EC and there were a handful of people trying to lose weight this summer.

Have you made any more progress? Anyone starting to try who wasn't back then?

What are your methods and routines? What is your diet like?

I really wish that German vegetarian poster from KC that yelled at people for avoiding carbs was here. That was always really fun.

Personally, I think my goal of 19 bmi was a bad idea. I don't think there's much health benefit of being that compared to 21 or 22. I weigh what I did at 13 years old now. I'm really happy about that but while it looks good for my stomach it looks worse in other places. I'm probably going to stop here.

I'm most interested in the Finn who had a goal he wanted to reach by July.

Avoiding excess sugar is a good thing, but don't fall for the "light" meme. Fat (and proteine) is what makes you feel saturated, and the fancy vegetable stuff is not a very good fuel. I always say that not the steak is the problem, but the fries and the cola/beer which usually accompany it. Instead of cutting back on fat, increasing movement might be of help. Not drinking alcohol though is a very good thing for various reasons, and avoiding the useless 7 calories per gram which your body priorizes in metabolizing is one of it.

Try to count your calories for a week and see how you go below or above the 2000/day. Eating a whole chocolate bar makes 500 already. I can easily do that on a day. But if you eat two 600 meals and flush it all down with cola or other sweet liquids you can easily get above it. Don't forget other snacks you buy while on the move or at home in between meals.

Perhaps just eat less. Not sure if that is really true but when you stomach is stretched more goes into it and its kind of a vicious cycle so... shrink it.

A diet extremely high in fruits, nuts, and vegetables is unironically the absolute best diet you can possibly have for weight loss and increase in mood and energy levels.
>the lots of fried foods, soda, fatty sausage and bacon, alcohol, and videogames and TV diet now with extra helpings of risperidone and antidepressants! *contains zero fruits or vegetables
>why am I so fat and depressed

Cut down severely on red meats too. Honestly the only actual reason anybody would bother with eating lots of meat while losing weight is because they're specifically trying to build tons of muscle mass and eating all that loads of meat is otherwise going to slow down your weight loss. If just not being fat is your objective then lots of fruits and nuts and vegetables is the best thing you can do for having high energy levels and a brightened mood in addition to losing weight, with light helpings of white meat, eggs, and sometimes dairy but you should probably cut out the dairy too especially if you're American.

I was going to post this in the commiebloc thread but you know what? We should just have a thread devoted to discussing Russia and Russian things and asking Russian questions since like a third of the board often ends up feeling that way anyway.

So my hypothesis is that Russian cynicism and gallows humor is merely the defense mechanism of a truly deeply idealistic and romantic people. I mean, just look at this. Just look at it. This was commentary from the Slavic dev about making Pathologic 2. You would think with talking "freedoms" well maybe American but no, and I have come to find that somehow this statement in itself typifies a very Russian kind of psychology about everything.

It's kind of hard to explain I think if you haven't just spent the last decade talking to and being around Russians but I think there's something to it. Think about just the Russian experiment with Socialism and subsequent failure. In this statement I somehow see people like Lenin and even Stalin. Was what Stalin said about a people with empty belly's knowing nothing about freedom just a cynical ploy and excuse? Certainly. But I also think it was truthful what he said, and that there is something certain, something nebulous yet discreet, about a Russian mentality I haven't got English words for, a thing I think people may wrongly use the term "soul" when what really they mean by "soul" is just the clumsiness and pretense of jaded apathy and cynicism in direct response to their ideals meeting headlong against reality. This statement here is just something so trivial as about a videogame. What deeper a thing can a Russian thinker truly believe and feel that we cannot perceive?

Well he said "both" so the presumption seeming to be that with so many playing both then just about everyone played at least one. The thing with that being, if you played one in a series or franchise it's highly likely that you're going to have played all of them, in which case I would say that yes he is correct in that people who played one probably did play both. I am specifying that meanwhile there's still quite a lot of people who haven't played any, which could also be partly because of whatever reasons and thus not getting into the game. Or not getting into the game period. I'm splitting hairs at this point.

I don't understand why Eurasians care about tea so much. I ran out of everything to drink today except water and the tap water tastes weird and bitter even after going through the tap Brita filter so I started making tea. On the one hand I do now kinda see how Europeans and Asians think microwaving isn't right because it just feels kinda slightly wrong or lazy somehow and I don't understand why. Of course on the other hand I still don't get why anyone would care about tea. It is like a shitty inferior and more time consuming beverage to make than coffee in every conceivable way, taste, caffeine content, hassle, even the caffeine itself feels kinda more shitty and jittery somehow and it isn't even as strong. I luckily have night time teas but this has convinced me I need to actually not be lazy and go out to the store tomorrow and pick up something to good to drink like juice, milk, seltzer and maybe even a soda.

Last one I had was the usual sleepy time herbal tea. And I like the fruity infusion type teas but sadly that is not what I have. Not that it matters anyway because it's way too late for caffeine. I sincerely doubt there is going to be any tea out there that would convince me it's even able to be near coffee let alone stand as equals for the better drink. Plus if I'm going to drink something that's laced in drugs I want it to actually taste strong.
