Let's talk about operating systems.

Windows:
I've used vista, 7, and 10 over the years, and 7 was definitely the best. I didn't mind vista, despite the memes about crashes.
10 is flat nonsense design wise, and there are a number of big problems. Telemetry, forced updates, and text scaling to name a few.
It baffles me that Microsoft can get by with producing complete shit with their money and market share.

Mac:
I got a used macbook a few years ago when I was in the market for a laptop, and I really do enjoy it. It runs everything I need, it's efficient, and it doesn't look like shit.
If macs weren't so fucking expensive, I would buy one to replace my main machine.

Linux:
I really do love Linux. You can make it into anything you want. I used it a lot as a teen. But the problem with Linux is a lack of software support.

There are several phones that work well with lineageOS, if that is an option for you? You could buy one of those OnePlus phones second-hand and put lineage on it. At least that's what several people around me did.

Or do as I do and live without a mobile phone.

Dear Ernst, in my current situation I cannot abandon my rubbish alcatel without incurring penalties in regards to employment opportunities or government services I'm currently collecting.
Otherwise in the past I've lived without one, and my plans have been to purchase an old ipod classic, install rockbox on it and find a way to assemble a new music collecting without the built in spying assemblies racking up information on where I go, what I consume, who I call, etc.
This phone is a substandard mp3 player that skips at times, which I align it to Google play and other apps causing a build up of undeleted files somewhere in a directory I can't access unless I had root.
Regards, a former phoneless human.

I just bought a burner for no other reason than to register accounts and such. I'd rather just have a parellel identity at this point. It probably wouldn't be hard. In this country the main thing stopping you is a social and my ubderstanding is some people managed for years to use SS numbers of dead people though theyre usually caught. I think it's bullshit one girl finished her college degree with honors and then had it all yanked from here for using an assumed identity. It wasn't like she didn't legitimately do all the work.

Hey, I do have an old iPod 5th generation (from 2006) that I've been using for 14 years now. The rockbox-install on it must be at least 10 years old now as well, but I did do an update a few years ago to enable Opus playback, so I can't really check the exact date of first install. It's got 30gig of space, the battery is still the original and it's still able to play for about 120 minutes or ~3 albums, which is enough for my daily use.
I had to replace the TRS jack last year, but that was rather simple with the right tools.

I'm semi proud to say that it still, after all these years, is free of scratches (at least on the front side).

So yes, do get one, I can warmly recommend it.

Fun fact: People sometimes ask me where I got a tiny phone like that and when I tell them I don't have a phone and that this is just an old ipod, they go "Oh.... OHHH!! I forgot all about them, you don't see them anymore". Like it was 30 years ago that mp3 players were a thing.

Hello, frens! It's time for another issue of the fable Kohlzine. This one, like we all expected, has a very distinct apocalyptic and viral flavour.
We have uncovered another sura from the depths of a Mossad secret base on Kiev, Bernds wonder how would affect this epidemic to various strata of out society, typical shitposts and confessions and a review of a (let's hope not) prophetic game in these end-times times.

For any doubts or if you want to see the previous issues go to https://kohlzine.neocities.org/
You can also fine information on the last page of this edition.
We hope you have fun with it.

You may enjoy it, Ernsts. Maybe even contribute one day? We aim at having contributors from all over the KC diaspora.

You're from Florida? My sincere condolences. That state's only good offerings to the world were Florida's Natural and Death Metal.

Florida, an oozing herpes sore of a shit-swamp whose atmosphere tastes of roachspray, juts out into the Atlantic where an endlessly looping Möbius strip mall stretches on between all the sun-murdered stucco rooftops, inhabited by dying geriatrics on painkillers and retarded gangstas who rob said geriatrics of their painkillers. Why is everyone in pain? Because they live in Florida.

Florida suffers the same transient cultural vacuum as Southern California because nearly everyone of its current residents was born somewhere else and then embarked on the ill-informed decision to flee there only to live an idle existence of petty crime and eating each other's faces. Thoroughly rootless, soulless and without taste.

I really don't care what you say RAC I still wish I lived in California instead, either around a nice hopefully non-flaming redwood forest in a cabin up north or bumming around the south if I actually had the money to live in a place like Santa Monica. I fucking loved California. The only exceptions are San Francisco which I genuinely believe is literally inhabited by either a WoD Earthbound tier demon or the devil himself, and West Hollywood, which is basically said demon's more flamboyant and shallow little brother. Yeah. I really wasn't digging West Hollywood so much. I'd not want to deal with that place even if I were rich and famous. I liked other parts of LA a lot though.

But as for Florida you are correct. It's something more like a cross between a death world and a witchworld, just on the edge of the warp enough to be fucked up but still contain outlines that are recognizably human from a distance in the fog. It does not surprise me whatsoever that Florida is our new hotzone and it's gradually increasing my worry with the number of Florida plates I inexplicably encounter.

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 find it interesting that imageboards tend to attract the outcasts and dissidents of their societies, so much reliably so, that you can pretty much tell what their society is generally like by imagining the opposite of it. I'd infer from this that Canadians are above average valuing intelligence and politeness, possibly even prudish, and that America is a more racially diverse/tolerant society as is Germany, and that Turkey is filled with Islamic bydlo as is Kazakhstan to an extent. I'll never forget that one Kazakh who ranted on and on about "Islam is such. SHIT. you wouldn't believe" some years back. Probably around like 2015 or something.

Your problem, sir, is in a fundamental misunderstanding of reality: bydlo gonna bydlo. There is no solution or cure to this, except that you at least find a way to temper their behavior from being shit throwing retarded apes. Every ideology has some intellectual of some sort, just as it has its fundamentally retarded ideologues. It would be far easier for me to engage somebody who's a sincere intellectual even if it's an ideology I hate, than it likely would be for me to routinely deal with bydlo who agree with me.

What I find exceedingly interesting about the Christian God is that has personality traits. All this love stuff from him is kinda absolute. We've been warned that his wrath is very powerful too, but in general this is something that I find curious. Curious and pic if you think too much about it I guess.

Pic? What does happen if you meet God face to face when you are alive IMHO. Exodus something, KJV.

Honestly I think that aspect is kind of a bunch of bullshit that is directly the result of this really peculiar European mindset that I just don't get. The Judaic interpretation true has just as much of the personality stuff, but God is truly seen as being much more ineffable and mysterious, and even His angels are basically Chtulhu. I relate much more to a lot of the Judaic aspects of the religion, and find truth in the fact God is just as much seen some sort of eldritch abomination from beyond time even moreso than an ant could not possibly hope to perceive any of us in full on even a physical level, let alone comprehend why I am getting annoyed with it or feeding it to a spider, which I deeply, regret, shame, not sure right word. But I've tired of the ants and responded in not even wrath but frustrated coldness and killed probably a hundred of them and it's gnawed at my sanity I hate killing them but it's beginning to be a paranoia they'll end up shorting out electrical equipment somewhere, like a human having no idea behind the reason committing sorcery is pissing God off.

So in that case I guess I do find it kind of relateable but only insofar as it's more of a Hindu or Mahayana Buddhist conceptualization of God also choosing a physical avatar like Christ. Frankly there's things about Catholicism which very much remind me of that taint of our collective pagan idolatry background, like the praying to Saints and pseudo-idopatry of them or pseudo-deification of the Pope. It ultimately strikes me as way too human and way too reminiscent of what happens when someone with a psychopathic personality disorder warps the perception of reality of those around them only to found a dynasty with some complete lies to enforce it and control behavior while hundreds of years later people are still trying to make excuses for psychopaths and trying to rationalize why theyre doing those inexplicably viciously sadistic and violent things. So it is also clear to me why fedoras gonna fedora.

In the shorter term I have been actively trying to insulate myself from certain other consequences because you need two crucial things in a pandemic: knowledge and forewarning, and resources, and I actually at least have the one and thanks to neetbux have managed my resources better on the other. The full pool of my resources is such that if I were desperate enough to tank every dollar I had and I got the $1200 neetbux I could pretty much survive deep into January without any job or income stream but that's just about it and I'm a helluva lot better off than most in that regard.

My critical two issues are, sadly, exactly the fucking same as in late March I was not expecting my country to go so full fucking retard that I would have to do this a second time. These are food and firearms. The problem with this is if I get stuck with an angry hungry crowd outside my flat then there really isn't anything that a bump stock with dual barrel mags is gonna do for me. There's only so many zerglings you can shoot down before they overwhelm your D, you know? So there's that consideration, thus rendering the food point moot in a total freefall of our society, particularly if they are led to believe I have things worth looting or set things on fire near enough to me my place catches fire too.

And really I just want to be clear on this, it's not just about dindus or whatever an imageboard retard foreigner could think. I am actively afraid of my retarded redneck neighbors looting me too. This is the metric where a face mask is a bad idea because it's effectively pandemic bling which would alert them to my place and I ain't in the mood to play The Division IRL. Can it get that bad? Maybe. But it really depends on November 5th which I guaran-fucking-tee is going to become a complete national shitshow regardless of the outcome. The problem is ultimately not any one ethnicity or racial group here but the fact that, again, I am surrounded by dangerously retarded Americans and all of them are an active existential threat to me right now more or less. Thankfully I've got enough people unlikely to loot me for beans if Happening level 1 happens but idk how long people will keep their shit sorted here particularly in total economic crash with mass homelessness and thousands of dead children this fall if things go real bad.

It's only somewhat true. Alleged "leftists" I can't even call these people leftists they're basically just dildo waving neoliberals as opposed to GOP neoliberals it's pretty much the same shit minus a few social issues right down to the faggy obsession both sides of that coin have with idpol really only care about Russia because they're butthurt about Russia hating the gay and now even more enraged because they're trying to scapegoat the Russians for Trump rather than the much more uncomfortable fact that this is the nature of our broken system and how retarded people are here. They have yet to accept the real nature of America and American society and who actually owns it. It took me a long ass time to get over my own burgerism.

Although truth be told you're right, they've been lead to believe Russia is some terrible despotic country that should have a color revolution just like everywhere else except those violently despotic shitholes who sometimes attack us but we're supposed to be cool with because our elites have sweet weapons deals and corruption going on with them. It's pretty ironic though that both sides probably got convinced to hate Russia for very different reasons, like telling the left they are some horrible gay hating Christo-fascist theocratic police state then telling the right they're a bunch of evil commies who hate our freedoms or whatever. I think that the truth is far more uncomfortable because what I've come to believe is Russia and Russians are really just like a squatting version of us.

Well I am pretty sure that whatever the fuck OP has is not necessarily related, Lac comes from the Lac beetle of Southeast Asia which it is name after. That is where we get things from like the words/substances such as Lacquer and Shellac. It is a waxy resin produced by beetles which had formerly been used in primarily wood working but also other industrial purposes until often petroleum based synthetics largely replaced it unless you had a particular thing for that classic warm finish of real lac, or had been trying to repair some old furniture otherwise like has largely been phased out except for certain select sorts of wood enthusiasts. Fun fact it's also even still used in certain pharmaceutical and foodstuff applications for example in dye and the shiny coating on candies though obviously less popular now with more options. Also another fun fact this old school meme is clearly a valid thing because some wood is so pricey that getting the real deal might as well be trying to pass off counterfeit gemstones and the guy is using a jeweler's glass to inspect things like the grain and ring structure to ascertain its species, authenticity quality etc.

Really there isn't much more satisfying than thinking about and looking at good woodworking. I really don't care what anybody says lac is conceptually and in certain applications aesthetically as pleasing as the woodworking equivalent of a bolt action.

I honestly believe some races are superior to others. This is a basic rule of nature and survival. Just take a look at extinct animals.You either hunt or be hunted. But there is another category, cheeky cunts who leech of with eating the rotting leftovers. Today the same thing is happening in our society. These Untermensch, they fear our might and power but we've been poisoned! They've been leeching from us these vermins are sucking our blood alive what do you have to loose!

There's actually an interesting point here regarding empiric process and seeing results of a phenomenon, and nature of real time calculations.

Say you have a very slow computer that is computing some kind of equation. Say it will finish its computation way after the point where you could see the result, in a million yeas or whatever. You do not know how it really works, only that it sometimes outputs certain results, and that in the end, it will come to a final conclusion.

You really want to know the result of the computation, but you can't make the computer go faster, or take it apart without breaking it. So you observe its behavior, study it, and make a "model" of the computer, based on rational extrapolations and reasoning. You build a much faster computer that, according to your model, is doing the same computation as the original computer, but much faster. It works for a few minutes and outputs the result.

Now can you actually say that you know what the slow computer will actually output a million years in the future? Empirically, no. You can only say what your model outputted, and how believable its answer is, depends solely on how well you can justify that your model is correctly simulating the real thing. It can even be believed that your model has 100% identical behavior to the original, and the outputs will match. You can still not say that you empirically know what the original computer will output.
