It is about Horror Punk, starting from The Misfits, then the two samples This is Horror Punk 1&2 which tried to give a good overview of what emerged after the reunion of The Misfits end of the 90ties (without Glen Danzig of course) and after this some random pieces of the genre. To be honest, some psychobilly and othere familiar genres are within this playlist. by Horror Punk & Psychobilly

Do anglos really believe in Mackinder's World Island thesis? Do they really believe that Germans would become world super powa if Germans managed to have access to the "heartland" of Eurasia, AKA Russia? I always thought this thesis was silly but I could see why Brits would be thinking like this in late 19th and early 20th century, Germany seemed unstoppable in their growth except that it lacked resources, Brits controlled the seas but lacked direct access to Asian's heartland, it could only try to keep coastal regions from accessing it. One can see why Brits would be worried about anyone having access to the big piece of land that they couldn't, specially if this someone was the fastest industrializing country of that time and if this country stood in between Britain and the "heartland" geographically. Still thinking that Germany would become world super powa by controlling the "world island" seems to be a bit of a stretch, it seems to me brits were merely thinking on how to stop German growth and expansion.

And what about today, is USA really trying to keep germans from doing business with Russia based on the same idea? NATO seems to be more and more a project of polarizing Europe against Russia, but why would USA be so hellbent on that after the collapse of USSR? Sure USA is also resource rich and it all can be seen as an attempt to make of Europe a market reserve for USAian commodities, but they can't seriously expect that Russia will accept being eternally alienated from Europe, which is where it historically belongs.

I don't know, maybe I'm missing something about this thesis, but reading about recent happenings regarding Russia you always stumble on references to this thesis, apparently a good deal of Russian strategists also believe in it or at least believe that this is how USA and England try to keep them away from Europe. But the thesis to me seem to be silly and outdated.

This is a popular explanation with people who have no knowledge of Bolivia, and general suspicion of American foreign policy - which is justified, but America is not the sole explanatory factor in every crisis around the globe.

You can't simplify it to just lithium. The deposits are not being actively exploited, and doing so would be incredibly difficult and costly. A more nuanced explanation:

I was halfway to writing a proper essay, but I'm just going to tl;dr it. Indigenous Andean highlanders loved Evo because he massively reduced the crushing poverty that they lived under, and made them feel like they were in charge of their country for the first time since the Incas fell. White people and mestizos from the lowland eastern half of the country are butthurt that uppity Indios were nationalizing natural resources and redistributing land, and not just eating their shit like they've been accustomed to for the last 500 years. There's also a weirdo Christian fascist element to part of the opposition, inspired by American evangelical protestantism and possible Ustasha runaways. They've made a big deal about how Bolivia is a Christian country, probably because Andeans were only ever partially Christianized, and Evo openly invoked Pachamama throughout his terms.

>t functioning democracy in other country is in American interests, because functioning democracies tend to be more peaceful, stable
functioning democracies sometimes very anti imperialist and anti american. and USA will still try to fuck them up because they are against their interest.

USA would gladly choose absoulute monarchy that sucks USA dick like Saudi Arabia over a functioning anti american democracy. what you say in here is very naive, that's the kindest word I can come up with.

Very much this. It is actually NOT in USA's interest because the US has become an imperial state and has been that way since the late 19th century. It has never changed or shifted gears from that, only expanded.

A stable, functional, peaceful democratic nation will want things like fair terms of trade, non-interference in their personal affairs, ability to pick and choose their allies and partners. I mean just look at the recent chimpout the US has had over trade even with Germany.

This is what the US does to peaceful, stable, democratic and secular nations
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1953_Iranian_coup_d%27%C3%A9tat

Instead most governments whose creation was supported by the USA across the world are horrible, brutally repressive dictatorships and nutjob theocracies. These include
Qatar, UAE, Saudi Arabia, various central Asian dictators and shitty theocratic states like Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan, formerly Iran after overthrowing their government and when the people of Iran overthrew the US puppet dictator the US switched to aiding a dictator to fight them even knowing that Saddam was using chemical weapons, the Mujahideen and Taliban, various shitty South American dictatorships including Pinochet's Chile and so on and so forth.

No. 34029
Here the problem isn't the commieblocks, building standards in the 70's were far better than even our beautiful and somewhat luxurious dowtown 18/19's century buildings France is famous for, no the problem is some of theirs inhabitants who litter and ruin everything. Most post WWII commieblocks are still decent by today's standards as long as you are not being surrounded by bydlos who ruin everything. I prefer having less living space and insulation in the town centre than being surrounded by absolute human trash even if the flat is objectively decent.

On the bright side, you have a nice view, and, what's even more important, you have no bydlo upper neighbor to ruin your life. In case of a neighbor conflict, the upper occupant really has the high ground, both literally and figuratively.
If the lowe neighbor starts shit you can just start jumping rope sessions and they can eat lime in their helpless anger. And if you decide to test you fancy new subwoofer - again, they can do nothing about it.

Aww shit guys (you'll always be Bernds in my heart).
I haven't posted in a long time but I've just received a mail telling me I'll probably be part of a jury for a criminal trial court in 2020. It's like winning at the lottery except that it will involve either a murder or a rape or maybe a robbery but that would be boring. I know this may sound like a perversion but I'm really excited to do it just to see how justice works. I'm teasing you but I don't know if and what I'll have to judge yet. If it happens then I'll post a thread about the trial but without being too specific because that would be illegal.

We have a public jury for crimes which can send someone between 10yeatw to life in jail so basically murder, rape and armed robberies plus terrorism I think although there's often a special court for serious terrorism cases without a public jury. Judges don't wear silly wigs here but we have our own funny protocols with lawyers speaking like if they were Aristotle reincarnated.

Do any Ernsts enjoy birding here? Recently I've been getting into it. About two weeks ago I bought a cheap bird feeder at tractor supply and hung it in my backyard. At first nothing bothered with the feeder, but slowly a number of birds began to take notice. Now I have chipping sparrows, house sparrows, house finches, northern cardinals, and gray catbirds visiting the feeder. I also leave a bowl of water on the ground for american robins and european starlings, which I change every morning. Unfortunately, I do not have a decent camera so I cannot provide images of my backyard visitors. Here are some photos I found using google images.

Well never mind then. Fuck. That is incredibly sad news indeed.
>In the hopes of more smiley faces getting wings and fewer getting Xs, a team of scientists, rangers, and volunteers are working around the clock during the current breeding season, using 3D-printed smart eggs, activity trackers, and a sperm-toting drone nicknamed the "cloaca courier" to turn a record breeding year into a repopulation milestone and help this beloved bird step back from the brink.

>At the core of the program this year are activity-tracking smart transmitters worn by every bird that loop around their wings like a backpack. Even without rangers spying in the woods, the system can report which kakapo have mated, with whom, and how vigorously, and sensors outside each nest send alerts when mothers come and go. Fertile eggs are removed from the nests and incubated in a dedicated room on each island to be hatched in captivity, while the mothers sit on 3D-printed smart eggs that make noise to prepare them for the return of fluff-ball chicks. Some hatchlings are being hand-reared to induce females to nest again this season.

Lol your library looks almost identical to mine except for a few things like Ducktales, Farcry, Final Spam, Flatout 2, Arma II and so on, and if you dont count those and combine my wishlist with few games I only haven't got yet because I'm not rich or it got delisted from Steam like Alpha Protocol and it's basically my library.

https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197973112890/games/?tab=all I may or may not end up killing the post for this but whatever
I nabbed Alan Wake once it got relisted on Steam again. Not sure why they took that off before or why Alpha Protocol got taken down. On 4kanker /v/ when I was checking threads this year or last (those are the only things remotely tolerable about that hellhole is steam summer sale threads) Alpha Protocol was routinely showing up, but it must've been last year because I saw it before and had it wish listed iirc but it got taken down sometime before the summer sale of 2019.

Of course then there are the games I have taken down from my wishlist just out of principle like Age of Mythology and Dragon Age Origins. I refuse to pay for those games or have any of my money at all go towards Activision or EA. I am on a complete boycott of those companies and will only pirate them. The worst part is when I'd see a nice game and get it a few years ago and find out later it is fucking EA. So I haven't played Age of Mythology, Alpha Protocol, or Dragon Age Origins yet partly because I haven't remembered to pirate them and I only have like 1.5tb to work with. More if I finally went ahead and formatted a couple old drives I have hanging around since I'm pretty sure I already backed up anything valuable it's just I cant remember if I have a disassembled laptop somewhere that's fixable or not for them. Hell I should try that.

Wait...ohhh right because I actually wasnt even plugged in to the internet at that time when I was playing and finished Fallout Tactics. Which, wait a minute then why the hell is PoE so long
I could not have POSSIBLY spent more time in that pos game than it says but maybe I did. That is just one campaign and not even counting the DLC which might be part of why I rip on it so much so frequently because of the sheer amount of time I felt like I sunk in that game without getting a whole lot back. It's almost like playing the slot machines or something, where you just keep hoping to get better and it drags on and saps your time and then every once in awhile it does a cool little interesting thing for just long enough to keep your hopes up and keep you playing. God I can't even imagine how much of that is loading screens. I probably have like a solid 20 hours on PoE which is just loading screens. Can you imagine? I'm not even young anymore. I wasted probably three solid full time job shifts worth of my life minimum on doing absolutely nothing but sitting there looking at Pillars of Eternity loading screens. And it isn't even fucking turn based so you can't just walk away and like cook pasta or have a cigarette as you can on XCOM2 thinking about what you're going to do next or savoring a hard won victory speaking of which why the fuck did they change that in WOTC? I liked watching my dudes sit there shifting around their sits on the drop ship. Now I just get that stupid fucking XCOM badge icon and a blank screen while spending almost exactly the same amount of time on loading times, not to mention how they half assed it to try and improve performance so now all transparent surfaces look like pixelated obnoxious dog shit I swore was a bug. Firaxis really makes some great games and XCOM2 is quite possibly the only triple AAA I bought at full price on release period, but man did they fuck that up with WOTC. Probably the only game I'm going to ever actually do that again and grab it when it's not on sale is Wasteland 3, and possibly also Disco Elysium and VTMB2 if my machine has a chance in hell at running it

God, i'm SO with you for this point. I was pissed of by that shit almost from the start of the game, you could only guess what sheperd actually says. O wait, sometimes he even said something entirely different than the thing you picked, alas for me.
And for the moral-stuff, after playing ~10 hours and reading that you MUST choose a side and/or you CANNOT even answer with the other side pissed me off. Heck, i got me a mod where both were at 100% so i could answer how i liked.
What is this shit? If i want to be nice with some npc and want to fuck with another i will do so. But the logic says "nono, you are good/bad, you can't be the other way!

You mentioned your way of simply killing almost everything later in game. Funny, was the same expierience for me. At first, i tried to understand the motives for each faction or important person i found and thought about how to handle with em. Later on i just thought fuck, they're all spupid, it's the best otion to clear them from the surface and rule it myself.

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.

>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.

Many, but maybe I'll find some answers, will only lead to more answers tho. At least from 2000 years of wectern philosophy there is nothing more or less to be expected. And yet something happens along the way.

If you want a concrete question right now, I cannot give you one that is more precise, only broad ones.
How to break out from discurse, from philosophic discurse? Are we really trapped in mediation and representation as Kant says? Something about subject and object that bothers me; And why is Hegel and his dialectic so liked and what ways are there to go beyond it? Whats with the philosophical decision, can we move beyond that? George Spencer Brown has written on this decision thing, when you decide, something falls off, we have a limitation here, a thing that cannot be circumvented, you will always miss something; oh and, what is math? And what is our relation to technology?

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.

Except most of those people literally weren't bernds. Iran is a good example of someone who was a bernd as well as India both of whom would fit right in here with like Kazkhstan and old game Russia among others. Most of those people moved on and it was replaced by more 4channers until KC itself was basically nothing but a clone of it in 2016. Is France still even France if less than 90% of people are even still French? The answer is obviously no and that is what happened. You would think people most supposedly vocal about stopping rapefugees, preservation of culture, and the great replacement would not ironically embody those very concepts themselves but that is exactly what 4kanker did and in 2016 bernds had become a minority in their own lands.
