Okay Ernst, I've been on imageboards since 2004 and during that time I've religiously backed up everything over the years and now my imageboard folder is 200,000 files strong, about 25% of those files are actually labelled so that gives about 50,000 named files.

So here's the deal, you post a single word and I'll search my drive and post the first 3 results

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.

Otherwise, it could just be a weird evolutionary quirk that wasn't stress-tested until humans started making a ton of shiny things.

More sandhill crane colts. First pic is a family I spotted in a busy parking lot. The second pic shows the same family I posted here >>52728. They do grow fast. Also, the cars all stopped so they could make it across the road safely.

The third pic shows the same female which I followed last year. She's easy to identify, since she's missing her right foot. I'm not sure when they chased off their last colt, but she has a new one now. I recall seeing a large juvenile group a few moths ago. After colts are chased off by their parents, they flock to other juveniles. After that, they pair off.

Sandhill cranes cover a lot of ground looking for food- they walk, stop to peck at the grass for a while, then walk somewhere else. So, yeah, they do end up crossing roads regularly. Drivers are good about stopping to wait for them to cross, though. Some people honk their horns to speed the birds up, and I've seen people try to slow roll up to them hoping to encourage the cranes to move faster. I hate that. They always move, if you give them time. It's not much different than a line of ducks crossing the street. Usually they take a straight line and are only in the road for a minute or two.

So they don't get hit by cars often, but it does happen. Side streets like this one are a lot safer than the main road. You can see the speed tables. Those keep the road racing to a minimum. Even so, a couple times a year I hear about a neighborhood crane getting hit. It's sad, and usually followed by angry social media posts looking for the driver. One time a guy hit one, and got into a public back-and-forth about whether it was his fault or not. He had some kind of Youtube channel, so his car was somehow known. On those occasions when sandhill cranes are hit, there are local rescue groups that come in to help if they can. They're not left to fend for themselves.

While I can confirm that Prey is good the 2006 one of the same name also is if you like shooters in fact iirc it's the unsung gem that pioneered a lot of the stuff Dead Space would eventually use like walking on walls/zero g iirc however one thing that just keeps throwing me off is all of their faces look just slightly off, almost like it is entirely composed of la creaturas attempting to pass as human. Whether this is deliberate or not idk though I think it's on accident that bizarrely ends up working for the game itself. Just looking at them it's like some South American mutts who are trying to wear human faces and you keep getting this eerie feeling like something is just not right with their faces but you can't put your finger on what it is. This really works to the game's favor the more I think of it.

Haven't had as much time for games though and now I must do wörk bullshit. This has made me realize how much of a waste it is to play games and also how much I wish I had time to play games too, although quite frankly I think if I'd retired from a windfall I'd just start concerning myself with other things anyway like I don't know mergers and acquisitions or something)))

I've been getting used to that first person/third person playstyle again at this point though, which normally I don't do. I wish I had more time for city sims but well you can't just sit down and play one without realizing 12 hours went by and now wörk is in two hours. I think my new objective should be to finalize a bunch of projects and weekly/monthly/other tasks so that I can sit down and play vidya in full. I even picked up a buttload of different new incenses just so that I can sit around and play games while programming my mind to associate each game with each unique scent. I'm on Dragon's Blood right now for playing Prey. White Musk reminds me of Pathfinder Kingmaker, and Sai Baba of Beautiful Desolation although I've been experimenting with trying to program either one game to two smells or two smells to one game, partly because I always ran out of incense.

I've got so much damn fuckin money right now I can afford to buy literally whatever the fuck I want, but I suddenly find myself being too damn cheap to spend any of it on something so expensive as a HOTAS wwhich is actually just a mancildren's toy because I have zero interest in getting anything neat or useful as a pilot's license. Even so, I think I can justify it to myself as putting it on credit with still a few months no interest effectively makes it feel like a lesser purchase stretching it out months at a time. My question is though, what is actually a good HOTAS?




I have absolutely no idea what a good HOTAS even looks like. Is any of these a good HOTAS? Is it each cheap shit that's just going to break on me and waste hundreds of dollars? Should I just go on Amazon and buy a cheap $80 HOTAS instead?

I want to be a creative person and come up with ideas for an animated series, film, comic, book, visual novel, and whatnot. However I always end up disappointed in what I come up with. What would your creative process look like if you had one? I picked up Hayao Miyazaki's book "Starting Point 1979-1996" since I thought reading his thoughts on it would be a good place to start.
No. 53541
>What would your creative process look like if you had one?
For me, it's pretty basic. Start with a general idea of "draw this", then pick up a pencil. Draw a lot of quick lines, erase them and draw slightly better lines. Repeat until a composition emerges, and the details come into focus. Stop when I'm sure I can't do better, or when I'm swallowed by despair. Sometimes drawings just suck and can't be fixed. It's a lot of trial and error, informed by things that have worked in the past, along with studying what other cartoonists have done. But doing is the important part. Creativity is a habit, a practiced skill.

>animated series, film, comic, book, visual novel, and whatnot.
I've had less success in this area. The longer ideas, the narratives etc. I think in small bites, quick intertactions. But I fill notebooks with literally everything. Things I see, conversations I hear, endless 'what if?' questions, or possible settings. This is the 'idea net' which Orson Scott Card described in his book 'How to Write Science Fiction & Fantasy'. Everything is a potential story, and writers collect the pieces while most people ignore them. Good book, would recommend.

First of all, writer's block is an actual thing. You can't fight it off if it happens and have to withstand it as it'll take its toll on you.
Track your interactions within societal circumstances and keep track of your reactions toward others — more often than not, it's the fact that you're being influenced by the mass that affects your ability to "be yourself"; unhinged.
Having picked up Miyazaki was a good idea, I suggest spending some time by yourself and delving deep into your inner persona — what drives you, what puzzles you?
A monologue is more cathartic than analyzing others and seeing what "the world" is doing.
Lastly, a creative process cannot be criticized, it is what it is. Do not thwart it, and instead resort to the stream of consciousness technique (see Wordsworth).

I didn't spend years posting on Kohl, you must be thinking of somebody else. I never said I was an elite either.

Odd weather won't kill of civilisation, poor nations fighting each other won't kill off civilization, people on the equator not being able to cool of through sweat won't destroy civilization. Civilisation is not the kind of things that you can destroy so easily. People dying of hunger in Africa won't cause everybody in Europe to permanently forget basic science and how to read.

You really don't seem to understand just how hard it is to kill off life. This isn't the first huge change in the climate and it wont be the last, life has survived all of them and life back then went through far worse and didn't have the luxury of science. You are being melodramatic and you should stop that, it only makes you look silly.

    Since when the great civilations of the world have hidden a  secret that no man have revealed!
today will be you date to wake up from state of dream you been sleep for many centuries
maybe the goverments of world and the religious of world knows about it?
you are in state of a "DREAM from the metrix"
budda called it a 'illucion" life. reality being perceptual.The creation is holographic,
containing all.The entire creation is Cosmic perception in varying forms of vibrational
sound frequencies,containing octaves of knowledge.and forming dimensions containig that
knowledge Each of these dimensions are ordered by their own universal laws that apply to the
expansive potential of the information within the dimensions.
" Uncounsious mind"=data transfer.01 quatum computing.or autopilot.
The "preconscious" refers to the thoughts you aren"t actively thinking of but can call to mind
given the right trigger."Consciousness" the state of being awake and aware of one 's surroundngs.
"subconsciousness" of or concerning the part of the mind of which one is not full aware but which
one's actions and feelings.So you see your whole life is about "thoughts,feelings,emotions.= reality.

You know there is something alluring about the preconscious in the manner of potential.

Though sound frequencies and a vibrational universe and it being a computer don't seem to add up so far to me since the first comes from a different dimension (mind=blown). Mayb I should ask

I think that it's entirely conceivable that individual consciousness and the arising of life is just the emergent property of a universe that is defacto operating as a kind of giant brain. Also this image is incorrect it isn't the galaxy but rather different star clusters. The way matter attracts makes it sure look super spooky though when you consider how absolutely massive a localization of matter has to be to pull entire galactic clusters into thin strands.

As an aside, one of the much more spooky and freakish things I've thought of is what if it's just that false vacuum really is a thing in which case we'd actually have large bubbles of effectively collapsed reality who contain within them other, newer universes, which operate exactly the same as our present universe's big bang merely being the result of collapsing a field https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/False_vacuum
The interesting thing is that the universe actually could be deleting itself and we'd never know it until exactly the moment this expanding ball of different physics traveling at the speed of light, also known as the speed of causality, finally reached us, or if any attempts at super advanced starfaring ships using exotic matter to create wormholes causes this.

I do think however it is profoundly and incredibly stupid for man to invent himself a machine, and attempt to model it as a basic machine upon his own brain, and then get so deluded and retarded as to mistake himself and his reality of being properties of his own machine. Now, we are not in a giant computer simulation in that sense. I'd posit it more likely if a simulation theory were correct that it'd be closer to a super entity merely dreaming of us and this world, or our existence and arising consciousness being a side effect, but to call it a computer is stupid beyond belief. A computer is merely an extra shitty attempt at facsimile of our own brains and our extra limited understandings of how our own brains operate.

Well, I would define "truth" as the least volatile and most stable state a configuration can be in, so to me, a pessimistic view of human behavior is the most "truthful", since the rock bottom is a set point, while "goodness" is infinitely distant and perpetually approachable. In the sense that you can approach it forever without reaching it.

All arrangements will eventually decompose to their most trivial states, and there's nothing more trivial than humans to be benefit-maximizing automata.

truth is absolute lack of contradictions, volatility has not much to do with it.
>since the rock bottom is a set point
things can always get better, but things can always get worse, too. like, when you're on position (-9000) on the real number line you can move to position 0 and continue to eventually reach 9000 or you can go to (-∞), (-∞)-1 and so on.
i'm not really arguing against pessimism though. pessimism can be useful while assessing probabilities of a particular situation. i'm arguing against being pessimistic in an absolute way, such that accepting negative states of affairs as absolute is desirable. this can logically only lead further into negativity.
>All arrangements will eventually decompose to their most trivial states
i think this statement might not be trivial to prove :)

i left /int/ around 2014 since kc became more and more an unbearable cesspool for /pol/tards and the like back then, however i've always been more of a passive lurker and never took part in socializing etc. t. actual assburger on /int/, so i wouldn't know about about irl circumstances of namefags like emokiddeh anyway. i remember iranball as quite an active poster who disappeared from /int/ all of a sudden during a time of turmoil in his country. although i wouldn't necessarily agree a lot with him, i still enjoyed his effortposts, so i was wondering what happened to him.

We are talking about the different metaphysical "levels" of truth. Here.
At the highest level, I see "tokens" proposed by Parmenides. They're like ideas, except more fundamental. They're the building blocks of ideas. Very primitive and fundamental. I could do a math analogy and say that a Parmenides' token is something like "Pi", an "idea" that is so fundamental, it is a lynchpin for the existence of other ideas. But really, it might go deeper than that. Like, pieces of immutable, indivisible information, from which all other information derives its properties.

You are talking about truth in a closer association with the notion of "fact". This definition of "truth" is circumstantial in that it can or can not be truth depending on the existence of an external object. (A contradition to the truth). Not "fundamental" enough for my tastes.

Me, I'm trying to introduce a notion of truth that's not entirely metaphysical, and can exist in a practical context, yet mimics the property of being entirely self-contained and immutable. "Truth" as in something that does not change its nature depending on what is introduced into the system. It does not interact with anything (for interaction requires mutability on part of the interacted), it does not change, can not be further decomposed. That is my notion of truth that is one level of abstraction (or "divinity" if you will) than platonic ideals, and yet can be formulated and utilized in a lower level, "mundane" context.
