You know, it's incredible. Over the last century, Britain built herself an image of sophistication, that in Britain, every men is a Mister, a dandy, and every woman is a lady. They bewitched us with their well composed comedies like Monty Python, Yes Minister and Fawlty Towers, yet I just realise that Britain also mad a lot of vulgar humour.
Saw this image yesterday, and I couldn't stop laughing how absurd it is for a good five minutes.
The fact that someone would make something this shit, this absurd, is in itself, funny to me.
It's so fucking stupid and straight to the point, it's incredible. It could be ironic, it probably is, but it also feels serious.

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.


Here is a link if anyone wants to suffer alongside me with Russian.

C'mon Ernst, learn a language!

Hello colin,

There are none except for an achievement. I think you get their virtual currency for achievements but I am not sure. Also, the virtual currency is useless to begin with. Still I feel less lonely. Maybe for some people seeing the XP gain of others is motivating because it gives a sense of competition.

Why didn't we have this one yet?
Well, post what you're cooking/eating, discuss food and its culture in general and we may talk about diets as well if you want to.

I'm not a big cook myself but once in a blue moon I like to do it if the process is not too hard or needs too much time. I think the last time I actually cooked something was a south-western inspired casserole, it was extremely fatty because of the massive amount of molten cheese and I felt bad after eating it.
Today I found some older frozen asian vegetables in my freezer and cooked them together with some frozen sugar bean pods and some curry powder, I never thought cooked vegetables without any meat or carbs could taste so well.

Has anyone here cooked phở before?

I usually prepare my broth with sweet onions, garlic, loads of ginger, star anise, salt, fish oil, shank and knuckle bones. I then add a toasted spice mix of fresh ground coriander seeds, cinnamon, clove, fennel, cardamom and peppercorns. After letting all those essentials boil then simmer for 10 hours, I then strain out all the fat and spent parts before adding bánh canh or Udon noodles and boiling until soft before adding thin-sliced sirloin.

I can never eat the amount prepared in one sitting, so I usually have tons of leftovers. One problem I have is that the broth always congeals into a thick gelatinous substance upon refrigeration that never turns liquid ever after five minutes in the microwave.

What tips do you have to render the broth soupy again? I've done some cursory research and apparently others hyperboil their broth initially before straining then reboiling and simmering. Any/all help sincerely appreciated.

I'd assumed he left too much cartilage in. Idk what knuckle bones are but it sounds like something similar to aspic happened. The problem isnt just the fats but the cartilage. Fuck meat stuff is disgusting. Like the more I think about what I'm saying the more disgusted I become.

Is Ernst into Watches?
No. 21541
>Did you try to change battery?
No, I never did. When the strap broke a few years ago I just stopped wearing a watch altogether. It was a gradual process, since it cracked a little at a time and I started giving it days off to delay the inevitable. Even then, I could have replaced the strap for a couple of dollars, but I didn't. I just let it go. Now I keep it as a kind of memento, and before it completely died I actually stuffed it into a backpack and took it on a few trips. I liked that it always had my home timezone. Even though I'll probably never fix it, I can't imagine ever getting rid of it either.

I have a nice mechanical watch that I only take off when I am showering. It's not particularly expensive but I've had it for around eight years at this point and I may want to get a new band at some point but it wouldn't really be necessary to do so.

I'm not into ostentatious watches, a lot of the guys my age have watches, sometimes not even very nice ones with big bezels and overly wrought metal bands I'm not a big fan of such designs.

The second and third watches pictured, I don't think they're the exact one I saw but it is similar. When I was a waiter I was working a function for the local hospital. This one guy's watch caught my eye. Just simple gold and brown leather but it was very nice and elegant in its simplicity. ebay has really granular ways to narrow things down and I found a few that are similar and they run around 4k USD. :'(
One of the few material things I covet I suppose.

Probably has a lot to do with no culture of highway on the Russia, though for most things the really isolated shitholes in Australia just use train or airlifting too. It's usually both faster and cheaper. The Gunbarrel highway really only exists because the government needed some form of access to bumfuck egypt for weapons testing. It's been replaced by the Great Central Road which is actually in good nick but that one is busier, in better condition and is considerably less post-apocalyptic mysterious & isolated.

This, combined with very tiny population plus fact that major parts of siberia is just one giant swamp on thousands of kilometrs and absolutely impassible during spring. Cleaning roads in winter also cost many money.
For this purpose of maintaining this cities (almost of them not natural, but artificial soviet oil or industry cities tbh) was created civil atomic fleet.

Want to make some posts in thread about particulary interesting random places I accidentaly found on map

Overseas Collectivity of Saint Pierre and Miquelon

This couple of tiny islands, which located directly south from Canadian island of Newfoundland. This basicly all what remaind of previously very big french colonial territory in North America, known as Nouvelle-France.
There a couple of historical things happened on this islands, like for example in 1778 this islands was attacked by British Empire for France Support of American revolution and they returned under French jurisdiction only after Napoleonic wars. During 2nd world war they was under vichy goverment, but in end of 1941 there landed troops of Free France and after some sort of plebiscite, islands obviously become part of Free France movment.
Most populated island is more small south one, Saint Pierre with city of same name with population around 5456 people. In island Miquelon there are around 624 people. And bigger twin island, and smaller one have their own Airfields.

This is a cool streetview of Saint Pierre city street near sea, as you can see, a lot frech flags, and while there some numbers of american cars, more cars are actually european, paticulary obviously french. Numberplates is Frecnh standart, but I see some north-american sized plates on some cars.

Suppose you're a member of the secret cabal of major bankers and old royalty owning 99% of property on the planet and you're tasked with saving planet from the multiple threats its facing - from possible asteroids falling on it to resource depletion required to sustain the billions which exist on the planet, from ocean acidification and ecological collapse of marine biosphere to the discontent of the populace withing all the different countries which is threatening to turn into a bunch of civil wars and possibly even in World War 3.

How would you go about it? Preventing wars and asteroids requires you to develop industry to produce goods and develop required technologies but it runs contrary to slowing down resource depletion and reducing ecological footprint of industry to prevent climate change.
No. 21469
You mean all of the above?

Well first of all, I'd be running contrary to the interests of those trust fund bitches so they'd immediately smear me as some Soros type where every knuckledragging mouth breather would hate me. Luckily I already hate most of the anyway and doubt that would change being the elite of elites except maybe I'd be far enough removed to pity them, and truly come to personally know hate for other oligarchs.

Asteroid deflection is not industry intensive. It's also, like a terrorist attack, an unlikely but very emotionally horrific type of a thing so even working on my own I could emotionally manipulate the public into supporting my efforts regardless, and branding as state enemies all who oppose it while sinking the costs into national defense budgets. And if I hear too much shit from anyone about not spending enough money on useless military shit we don't need and instead having the money specifically allocated to asteroid defense their nanny is going to find them dismembered and locked in their own luggage. If it's an existential threat I have no patience for fools and assholes and absolutely will go full-NWO. I'd have a jet liner crashed into their houses if I had to. You can pretend to care about deep concerns of others and humor imbeciles when it's not important or during peacetime. During an existential threat you sink the French fleet with French sailors on board if you have to and let them cry about it after we stopped the Reich.

Another area to cut down on is packaging. Some strides have been made here. Like you probably haven't even noticed the plastic twist off caps you use for all kinds of beverages like milk, soda, juice, coffee creamer and so on is now thinner, shorter, and uses less overall mass. Always appeal first to a man's greed, never his morality, and when you must appeal to his vacant morality do so in such a way that he feels socially judged for it. In the simple case of these plastic caps it can cost less money to produce the smaller cap and you can pass that on through the supply chain to encourage its adoption. Sorry fat people, I don't care if your fat greasy fingers can't grip the cap as easily. Do what you dont do in losing weight and actually put some personal effort in.

Portion size can also be controlled. In context of this thread I'm no longer mad about it because what happened during the 2008-09 recession was companies simply sold food in smaller containers without telling anyone rather than raising the prices. Oddly enough no one bitched about it. It was baffling. It was like somehow people were too fucking stupid even to notice that a jar of pesto or tub of ice cream was smaller than before but cost the same amount of money. So that is yet another tactic that can be employed, and even if you have to shake that slimy filthy disgusting hand of another person to pass it you can yet again appeal to man's greed and get them on board with selling smaller and smaller portions. In fact spraying cities with appetite suppressants or lacing their drinking water with it instead of fluoride would be a fantastic sounding idea, but we don't need to and it would have unintended consequences anyway. Just sell less food. Push fashions for smaller...whoa you know what o just realized? Skinny jeans are still the fashion. It uses less resources to make and accentuates whether a person is a disgusting fat fuck. Now frankly if you go to any city you will immediately notice how everyone's pants makes them look like complete faggots, but you can get people to wear all kinds of ridiculous looking nonsense especially if you get enough celebrities on board. Have a few musicians and actors wearing this silly shit and spouting off the party line. Get them to wear your faggot jeans so it becomes hip. If I'm the international banker I literally pay their salaries through owning and giving loans to the big movie and music studios.

Obviously a lot of tactics are being deployed right now, some better than others, and overall a lot less cynical seeming than I probably am but getting a bunch of children to protest against climate change and environmental catastrophe also works.

I can go on and on about this but again the real problem is going to be me dealing with the other oligarchs in your scenario, and how much I can get them on board. It is also frequently the case that no matter how bad the king, his immediate underlings and the toadies of the Court are often infinitely worse.

Don't blame 4kanker for that one. poltards are indeed responsible for the cancer spreading but the meme was cancerous to begin with and largely came from there, to the point where you could automatically tell the OP was a faggot from 4chan just based on starting the terrible thread with frog pics. I can somewhat forgive Lithuania because he probably doesn't know better in the same way I wouldn't know better using a cancerous sosach meme. I can't find it but I had a screencap of the entire KC catalog being nothing but this shitty frogposting towards the end. I mean it was their fault to begin with, but the meme was never good. It was always stupid and shit and always bandied about by 4kanker who I thought had invented it then imported it to KC.

Pie charts are fine. Maps are fine. Art is fine. Hell any kind of actual content is fine in comparison to this garbage. It's the stupidest most worthless thing and I can't understand why anyone thought it was okay unless they have an 89 IQ.

well I know about game. Not more about you need a lot of things, more problem is that rules changing with every faq, every codes. Like every month - at least it was in 6-7 edition - there is no OP and imba in broken GW rules and everybody before this "bug" fixed trying to search for specific models to play
"Oh, now dragons in CSM rules, every CSM army should have three dragons or it's sucks!"

I said it just because in some clubs and in some tournamets is rules like "only OFFICIAL models!!!!". And for more simple models - like chimera, it's not that hard to find cheaper but good pirated model. With pirate models it's problems with really detail heavy expensive super-miniatures. Also, yes, 2nd market miniatures can give you a lot bits. At least this kind of was when I cared about all this things.

You can pretty easily spot a Chinaman model if you know what you're looking for. Even a painted recast has a very different feel to a lot of the common kits because they're usually resin. Ironically the reality is the opposite to what you say. You're better off getting chinaman versions of expensive forge world kits because they are officially resin models and once they're painted up it's fairly hard to determine the grade of resin (FW generally uses better resin than Chinaman) so you're more likely to get away with it. Having resin versions of kits that are only in plastic is a massive red flag. The resin also has a tendency to warp, especially if it's shit resin plus brittleness, miscasting and air bubbles are a part of dealing with the material so there's that too. GW charges out the nose for what is sometimes pretty lacklustre, but you do get what you pay for with recasts.
