disrespected, maybe

I am a little sad about 8chan though. There was much more to that website than /pol/; the ability to create your own board was amazing.
Many of the niche boards that I liked (about same pph as EC if not faster) are still e0001.

It is unfortunate cycle:
A site becomes more widely used and becomes shit (or dies): youtube, reddit, 4chan, krautchan, etc.
In reaction, people create alternatives: bitchute, voat, 8chan, kohlchan, etc.
But since the original websites have all the momentum, only the people who are most readily impacted by the shittiness and who are the most invested switch over.
This causes the alternatives to be full of dedicated schizos and autists who create an echo chamber.
For example: I really dislike the policies of youtube, but when I look at front page of bitchute and all I see are conspiracy videos, German Military March #4121, and edgy political commentator #1231, I shake my head in disbelief.

Do you guys take nootropics? If so, which ones, and what is your intent? Are/were you successful with your stack?

I'd like to come up with a stack to promote focus and attentiveness since I tend to be very lazy and unmotivated. Currently I take 2x200mg caffeine daily, but this doesn't really cut it beyond making me feel a bit less drowsy throughout the day.

I know you're joking but I can imagine someone having that kind of retarded idea because all you'd be doing is ensuring tolerance building and eventually addiction. I don't think any use of fentanyl or other opioids for that matter is safe or that taking a lot wouldnt put you at risk for addiction but still.

>>33244
This is all it really comes down to. It is taking drugs for people who think they're too smart to take drugs. I can imagine the exact like of vapid Silicon Valley retard who'd be really into this kind of thing, and then try turning it into another retarded dangerous American get rich quick scheme and scamming a bunch of people. Or New Agers doing it.

Considering that a lot of these are probably made in Chinese bathtub labs I highly doubt any of them are safe to begin with and more than likely it's more dangerous taking these things than abusing prescription drugs because I'm pretty sure all these guys are basically just ordering pounds of it at a time off of Ali Baba. You should ask Turkic peoples what the wisdom of Tengri has to say about trusting Chinese merchants or Chinese in general. So yeah good luck with that.

Phenylpiracetam works extremely well for me

I find it stimulating, and am able to really dig in and focus on work like nothing else. I take Alpha GPC with it, that I can't tell if it hurts or helps but is recommended in the nootropic community

I also use modafinil, both together allow me to keep awake and alert for 36 hours

I save them for days where I plan on putting in a monumental effort

Other racetams and nootropics I've tried didn't have too much effect (tried many racetams and noopept, also adrafinil, ashwagandha, etc.)

The rationale behind the submachine gun was that the gentler recoil of a pistol cartridge allows one to fire full auto while still hitting the target. Pre-ban fully automatic firearms are prohibitively expensive for civilian ownership in the USA, but currently "binary triggers" that fire twice per trigger pull (once on pull, once on release) are available, which makes SMG-like weapons again a viable choice for civilian ownership. However in recent decades the proliferation of cheap and light body armor has led to SMGs falling out of favor with law enforcement and military users with short-barreled rifles becoming increasingly popular. Do imitation SMGs have any place in the current-day USA or elsewhere for that matter?
>>
No. 37993
The rationale was not really that gentler recoil would enable fully automatic fire, it was that the gentler recoil of a pistol cartridge would enable simple blowback/open bolt designs. We are now well past that and have low recoil rifle cartridges so a pistol cartridge is not really necessary for a short, light automatic weapon and the 5.56 can penetrate much more and do a lot more.

However, as an item for the civilian market it has some merit, you might not actually want the penetration in a home defence situation and hollow points can make up for the decreased lethality. But I don't know that a binary trigger would actually have much merit to it, it's not really enough that you could just spray at whatever threat was near and at the same time I would assume that it would have a negative impact on accuracy if you wanted to fire quick but aimed individual shots. A regular semi-automatic would probably be better.

Oh crap, I actually not understood theme of thread because english, I mixed binary trigger with Progressive trigger, and wanted also to add that progressive triggers is kind of crap and select fire is better, but I readed this article and find out that this is kind of mechanicsm that allow semi-autos being kind of fake full autos https://www.pewpewtactical.com/franklin-armory-bsf-iii-binary-trigger/

Aren't for same reason in US banned a lot of semi auto convertions because it's "easy to convert them in full auto" so they should be registred as automatic weapon? And new created things like SP5 - semiauto MP5 created the way you can't just replace fire control group and make it MP5 again, and this things from OP directly penetrate ideas of this prohibit laws?

Ernstchan is uniquely suited to hosting a "zine", or rather, a journal. The slow pace of the board, with focus on well thought, rational posts, combined with the knowledgeable and intelligent posters here, makes ernstchan ideal as a source of quality content for this sort of endeavour.

As such, I am looking for submissions for this journal. Submissions can be as long or as short as you wish, and can be on any topic of your choice. Artwork, poetry, fiction, puzzles, how to guides, recipes etc etc are also highly encouraged.

I hope to publish the first edition next month, and after that, once every two months, with special editions in between (for example, Christmas).

Submissions can be sent to --

ernstchan_zine@protonmail.com

I have not chosen a name for the journal at all. I encourage you to send suggested names to me at the email above. Please also note that I will not immediately respond to emails, but will acknowledge reciept of submissions in due course.

>have > hav

I agree, it could also be said that we could reverse the weird English trend of putting the vowel at the end of word when it occurs in the middle. For example; (The first word is just to show the effect of the the e in the second)

> Hat > Hate > Haet
> Bit > Bite > Beit
> Car > Care > Caer

The latter you might notice already exists in British English as a loanword from Welsh pronounced identically to the first.

Personally, I'd keep the "silent e lengthens the previous vowel", if only because we already have that rule, and it's pretty easy to follow. Ideally we change as little as possible about the writing system, while removing as many exceptions to the rules as possible.

eth/thorn could be done by instituting dh for edh... but do we really need it? It's not that common a sound, and outside of function words the rule "edh between vowels, thorn otherwise" works.

There are tons of proposals to radically reform English spelling. None of them have ever come close to implementation. The only one that has worked is the American system, and the only ones that have come close were also relatively modest proposals.

Yeah, well my attempt wasn't aimed AT ALL at preserving any othrographic tradition. The aim was to create some kind of a systematic transcription that can easily be applied to any language. I'm not even sure if I can consider it the same script as Latin, or is it merely a Latin-derived script (IPA is in a similar limbo...). Using English and developing an orthography therefore shouldn't be seen as a proposal to simplify English spelling, but rather a demonstration, a proof-of-concept.

Me settis:

ereader - encouraged me to read more and payed for itself three times over in pirated books, also with a stand I can eat and read at the same time which is a very novel and comfy experience
headtorch - makes pretty much any kind of detail work with my hands easier
beaded seat cover - eliminated both the smell and the feeling of swamp ass from sitting in the same chair for too long
erasable pen - I remember these being a shitty gimmick 20 years ago but they've perfected the technology and it feels like you're writing in the future. A dogsend if you're into taking notes but you also have OCD tendencies.

I personally try to stick to certain Dolce and Gabbana and YSL scents. Haven't tried meme tier ones like Drakkar Noir and I can't think of anything more homosexual than wearing another man's name like Calvin Klein or whatever that shitty preppy crap is Abercrombie and Fitch wearing bs.

I don't have it anymore but maybe on some old HDD that had a whole thing on how to understand scents. A good cologne is something any mature man with a sense of class needs, and it absolutely is one of those things you can never cheap out on. Would definitely recommend it as a must have for being part if the dating scene or pursuing relationships or even hookups. Wearing Axe is the olfactory equivalent of coming into work or going out in public in stained grey sweatpants.

So I ended up being memed into blind buying a bottle of Caron Yatagan. Smells very masculine/animalstic, but I think I can pull it off. It was more than half off, I guess because it's more of a winter fragrance, so I can probably even resell it without losing money.
Other two I dug out that I received as gifts are also pic rel, Dior Homme Sport (the 2008 edition which is apparently rare now) and Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male Terrible. Both are rather "fresh", think I'll rather try wearing those as spring is coming.

How come hollyjew movies like Romper Stomper, American History X, Combat Girls were right about far right groups? They're nothing but self-eating, purity spiraling, cancerous places full of absolute losers and spazzes, and those movies showed this perfectly. I should have listened. I have not once heard of a successful far righter that created something other than pumping his ego about muh heritage. Not once. But I've seen plenty of retards who were ignorant, on the dole/welfare, and unaccomplished. Identifying as far right is basically a cope and larp just like Black Hebrew Israelites. I used to actually think Nazis were cool before coming to imageboards, but my experience with imageboard users has been so negative that I actually retch every time I hear a Nazi military march, or even the German language. Congratulations. 8 years ago I would have never thought of watching anti-Nazi jew revenge porn like Inglorious Basterds, now I think I will with great satisfaction. Also, name some more movies like the above.

Another ones from this 1931-32 trials, this Korovin's ones version 1 and version 2. This trials was against one of experemental predecessors of MP 34 that was for 9mm parabellum - "MP19". And all of soviet experemental ones did meh, exept 1931 Tokarev and Degtyarov guns. And early soviet "mauser" ammunition was also meh quality whch affected trials. Do not confuse with 1941 Korovin's gun (pic 3) which was ultra simple thing that had very limited production for militia/worker guard in hard times of war which is kind of like british "sten" in idea but was not even nearly as massive. Korovin in general did a lot of developmental stuff, hell lot of prototype of pistols, submachine guns etc. but nothing what he did ever get to be accepted properly or to mass production.

My personal area of deep-diving into firearms development is elsewhere, but I did a bit of reading on Soviet employment of SMGs in WWII which was pretty interesting. It was strange to come across concepts such as the SMG Section, and the SMG Platoon while on the Wect, the SMG was much more organic to the regular Infantry Section and Platoon.

That said, the Soviet Battalion in general was an interesting place from a foreign perspective. Having dedicated formations of tankodesantniki instead of them being an expedient is bizarre.

Soviets is wierd on this field because they get into whole stuff late and quit fast. Only one period where soviets used submachine guns was WW2. Before it was "exeperements, too expensive to produce complex things with very limited small production", during the war with PPD-40/PPSh-41/PPS-43 SU passed whole line of evolution from complex milled WW1-style heavy ones to easey to produce ultra-cheap stamped ones, and then already during the war after capture of german automatic rifle prototypes SU wanted to replace all SMGs with something like that and this resulted in AK which did it and so there is basicly the end of soviet mass produced army SMGs. So most of thing to search is basicly in this not really long period of time. And all post AK SMGs is different experements and conversions of AK to 9x19 so nothing really unique there eather.

>In July of 1974, the USSR fired the first and only cannon to be shot into space. Haunted by fears of U.S. spacecraft inspecting or attacking Soviet spaceships and satellites, the R-23M Kartech 23-millimeter cannon had been secretly installed on the Salyut-3 as part of Project Almaz

The Space Cannon That Was Actually Fired In Orbit
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxEJmy2Ewy0

There were no cosmonauts aboard the station during the test fire, which took place shortly before the Salyut-3 deorbited in 1975. To counter the expected recoil, the ground crew-which administered the test- had to ignite the station's jet thrusters at the same time they fired the gun. If you were wondering what became of those fired shells, they apparently burned up in the atmosphere. Of course if they had chosen to aim out into space, they would probably still be out there somewhere :D.

Since a few of us here are seriously interested in religion, let us have a discussion for all things related to faith, theology, spirituality, metaphysics, et cetera. Virtually everything within the purview of faith is welcome in this thread. Absolutely no restrictions on any particular belief system. Cults are as welcome as major religion so long as they have serious, substantial beliefs. Agnostics, atheists, secularists and the non-religious are welcome, but keep your inquiries and arguments in good faith.

I would say there's a difference between "I feel that my country is special" and "my country is actually a lost tribe of israel, we are the true chosen of god".

Judaism is basically the worship of the Christian Father but not the Son or the Holy Spirit, and various forms of Gnosticism (and Catharism I think?) worship the Son but not the Father, so what would a religion that only worshiped the Holy Spirit be like?

I got the impression that they were more inspired by western (anti-western) rhetorics than by islamic stuff. At least when comparing them with Taliban in Afghanistan. I got the impression that Taliban are really a bunch of farmers, head of families, fighting for their land and their medieval lifestyle and medieval Islam. Meanwhile IS was a shitshow trying to make as much propaganda as possible, their idea was to be as bombastic and showy as possible. They made massive use of modern media, just trying to cause a strong impression on whoever watched it, their point was to shock. People think that they behaved violently because they didn't really have a plan, but I think it's also because they were playing for a western audience (or a westernized muslim audience) more so than a traditional muslim audience, because they were mostly modernized/westernized muslims themselves.

ISIS is the living example of what happens when medieval savages get hold of modern technology. Islam is not only un-modern, it's actively regressive. And Isis is basically the islam equivalent of preppers. Young dudes with no perspective in life. Become an incel, right wing idiot or islamist. The only difference is the eagerness of activity and thinking having an AK in your hands makes you a warrior and that your god will make everything great.

It's pretty much this just being honest, but being even more brutally honest it is actually exactly that in every war ever. The only difference is that every great war tends to have a bunch of manipulative psychopathic piece of shit elders basically enforcing an outward explosion of controlled chaos using these men. Wars are themselves the expenditure of that useless, hopeless, alienated, angsty young male energy. Every single war is basically just some absolute twat cajoling a bunch of would be ISIS members and incel right wing terrorists into going and looting the countryside outside of their territories. They pump them up and give them meaning, massively inflate and massage their egos, and give them just enough of the barest structure to not actively go around doing nothing but getting drunk while burning down villages and raping the women.

I don't think it's entirely fair to say that ISIS is medieval even. I mean sure they are, but they are much more technical and modern. The type of society they wish to enforce is indeed a perversion of basically every man's native anarcho primitivist instincts, to sneer upon the modern world and hold up the great values of raising a family and doing nothing but wood working while also incidentally using hacked playstation parts to drive Ork impromptu armored vehicles and drop grenades from drones while utilizing modern propaganda techniques.

I do however think that the one thing which actually made ISIS unique was that regardless of its members being composed of basically unemployable incel hooligans that they did manage to be a genuine apocalyptic death cult and not necessarily a rational actor in the common sense of the term. To this day I am actually rather surprised on just how poorly our military and political and even intelligence leadership appreciated what they were dealing with and were woefully inadequate at understanding this group and its aims. I swear I couldve personally oversaw the operations against them in the beginning and done a much better job, but well that's what happens when your high command is composed of a bunch of lawyer businessmen and boomer carreerists.
