Anyone else getting haunted by sudden memories and nostalgia, at any moment and any given time, with a soul crushing impact that you have physical reactions like you were punched in the stomach.

It forces me to avoid listeningto music from like 10 years ago or watching movies or shows that resemble the life of past centuries i lived in. I don't know how to handle this shit, maybe because my life now is basically trash and i start to pretend that my life in the past was light and easy-going pls send help

No not really. In terms of general misbehavior and cheating, drug abuse, petty criminality etc. it's more often the captain of the football team tiers. The thing is rich kids also tend to not suffer the consequences even when they get caught. The problem of criminal justice in this country is you're basically shit out of luck if you're a poor person. Super rich people basically act like they're above the law, and frankly they usually are.

What most people don't seem to understand is that the US typically doesn't kill you when you're pissing them off. They resort to character assassination first and foremost.

She should have died hereafter;
There would have been a time for such a word.
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale

He should write a book for how to avoid becoming removed from reality and schizo like that. If someone had warned me what happens by your early 20s when you cut yourself off from people and gradually live in a world different from everyone else I would have made sure to stay socialized and live a balanced life without fringe boards like krautchan filled with crazies.

>So I withdraw to the inside, to where events have reasons, and words and images mean something, everything is connected some way (like during psychosis). Unlike physical reality, which is just a barrage of sensory inputs and series of events that go on and on without climax, conclusion or end. Contact with reality is incredibly distressing to a schizo. More than anything they hate intrusions into the comfort and privacy of their being.

I disagree with reality just being inputs like in a brain in tank if you meant that. you probably don't so anyway.

But I can second the other things, I'm not a full blown schizo but I had my drug psychosis leaving its traces even after years now. Reality and dealing with the outside is indeed distressing. Since I'm on the edge I'm constantly drawn between cutting all contacts and fear of ending up lonely and weird(again).

Then we talk about different things all the time.

it's not about my personal burden here, it is about people with responsibility, be it Thatcher or Erdogan or in another sense: an abstractum like capitalism that has control over your life, your are dependent from it even tho you didn't even choice to give rights to "it", that is my problem. you are depedent from wage labor if you are not someone who has some share holds or whatever and let money work for you.

what you basically seek is a society, where nobody has control of anybody else, so some kind of anarchy with kinship and all?

views will be imposed on you even in a society that is not care&share, like we have today...too bad the state is not an antagonist to capital.

wait, isn't boyfriend/girlfriend gender-neutral?

gender != sex

it took me a long time to realize, that "gender" is some "self"-feeling about the state of your own mind, not your actual sex. we do not have anything like that concept in our language. always thought it is a synonym for "sex".

and "girl" or "boy" is a word referring to the sex of a human. nothing to do with gender. therefor the terms are gender-neutral.

or am i missing something?

i feel like i cannot untangle the logic behind this gender-bender-thinking. is there any logic? or just feelz?

Continuing on GIFs:
LZW by design restricts any possibilities of breaking images.
In brief, what LZW is?
Imagine that you start numbering every pair of values, like, "Co" makes pair No. 1, "on" makes pair No. 2. You number them further, later you meet the pair you already numbered, like "ti" in "possibilities", so you decide to make a pair No. XX, consisting of "ti" and "e". And so on, and so on. Later you just write down numbers of pairs instead of writing down contents of the pairs.
You can't suddenly make a pair No. 5 after a pair No. 3. You must define pair previous pair, pair No. 4 first.
That's how it works in GIF.
And then you copypaste gibber in the file. Will it work? Most possibly, no, it can have numbers of pairs which were to be defined further, but you put them earlier than they could appear, and decoder just refuses to decode the file. Therefore, making "glitch art" from GIFs is inherently difficult.
Hope somebody sees the message in the systemkontra'd thread.

An article in Foreign Affairs last month hypothesising a coming battle between liberal democracy and digital authoritarianism had a paragraph that has really stuck with me:

>Even the mere existence of this kind of predictive control will help authoritarians. Self-censorship was perhaps the East German Stasi's most important disciplinary mechanism. AI will make the tactic dramatically more effective. People will know that the omnipresent monitoring of their physical and digital activities will be used to predict undesired behavior, even actions they are merely contemplating. From a technical perspective, such predictions are no different from using AI health-care systems to predict diseases in seemingly healthy people before their symptoms show. In order to prevent the system from making negative predictions, many people will begin to mimic the behaviors of a "responsible" member of society. These may be as subtle as how long one's eyes look at different elements on a phone screen. This will improve social control not only by forcing people to act in certain ways, but also by changing the way they think. A central finding in the cognitive science of influence is that making people perform behaviors can change their attitudes and lead to self-reinforcing habits. Making people expound a position makes them more likely to support it, a technique used by the Chinese on U.S. prisoners of war during the Korean War. Salespeople know that getting a potential customer to perform small behaviors can change attitudes to later, bigger requests. More than 60 years of laboratory and fieldwork have shown humans' remarkable capacity to rationalize their behaviors.

I am just suspicious of anything where all traffic gets sent through it. Trying to keep all the shit like google-analytics disabled is also a pain in the ass but the real problem with general security isn't even about you, but the fact your security is only as strong as the weakest link. The easiest thing to do is just be unnoticed, because the fact remains this is an absurd amount of data.

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.

His face is the problem. He looks like the spitting image of someone I know with aspbergers too. IMO he'd look better growing his hair out into something or maybe having a kind of a beard. Removing more hair just emphasizes his small head even more where it looks like someone ripped the head off a Ken doll and replaced it with a smaller GI Joe head then taped a cutout photograph of the local Burger King middle management.

So I did some running on friday and my leg muscles are still sore from it, especially the process of kneeling down is quite a bit painful. I'm not very fit so I decided to do some sports and it has even been fun on friday. Last time I tried running was about 2 months ago, back then I ran way too much and too long so I got muscle soreness for about a week (I've read that running with sore muscles can lead to worse injuries) and dropped out.
Now this was my second try and it seems like history repeats itself once again. I didn't even overdo it this time, I was just running for about 13 minutes. Maybe it was too fast but it felt alright, it's not like I was sprinting or anything. This shit makes me angry, how am I even supposed to get fit when my hands are bound because of my bodies' reactions?

>>9475
Fascism is shit regardless OP, and you clearly know nothing of what you're talking about. "Small fishing village" for instance. It'd be like trying to defend everything shit and incompetent about Communism except that at least really did industrialize a bunch of agrarian nations--which also doesn't mean they needed Communism to do that. Plus I'd personally rather not live in a fascist country. You know what's a great fascist country? Saudi Arabia. You'd love it there. State and business concerns are merged under a monarchy, total separation of genders, general ethnic homogeneity, "SJWs" are executed etc.

My suggestion to all these dumb pricks is to try moving to their dream paradise of North Korea or Saudi Arabia.

The PAP was initially very left-wing, until the left wing faction, led by Lim Chin Siong were purged from the party in 1961. They formed the Barisan Sosialis, which were crippled in 1963 by Operation Coldstore.

Also what kind of nonsense is it to consider LKY and the PAP fascist? If it suited Singapore, the PAP would adopt policies regardless of ideology. For instance, the HDB public housing scheme that now houses 90% of the population, or the Certificate of Entitlement scheme which artificially reduces car ownership rates. The economic sector is generally very free-market liberal. The reason why the PAP has been in power for so long is incompetent opposition and subtle but effective control of media and speech.

I actually took up work on my first novel/novella. As I was only writing short stuff so far it is going forward really slowly and so far I have 12 pages. It is sort of frustrating that after researching I found that commonly they want novels to have a length of about 200 pages minimum as 100-150 would be perfectly enough for what I'm writing. Supposedly chances to get published nowadays aren't as bad as one might think, even though there is not as much people reading anymore as like 100 years ago, the whole scene has become more permeable and publishers are always looking for new good authors. I guess it is going to be much harder on the burgerlands though with english being lingua franca, also I heard horror-stories from /lit/ about publishers looking exclusively for minority-related authors and other stuff like that. Are you willing to write literary or genre fiction? I guess the latter will be asy if you are a somewhat gifted writer.

Yeah I was mostly thinking eventually a series of novellas and short stories in an interconnecting universe. I guess vaguely scifi would be some of them, although tbh I find it way easier writing about actual things rather than making things up whole cloth.
