How are you celebrating the holidays this year?

Have you bought gifts yet, or do you even usually buy gifts?

Also, Internet advent calendar for Ernst:

Wörked today and yesterday and just ate half of my Christmas pizza. It was satisfying. Onions, vegetarian chicken, smoked chipotle BBQ sauce and some seasonings. Man that was satisfying. Will probably eat deviled egg potato salad later and some sweets.

Gifts for me: scratch tickets, imported tea and fancy clothes.

Gifts for Mamá: scratch tickets, Kona coffee, winter vest and a Timex watch.

On scratch tickets, I spent $250 and grossed $280, which would be a $30 net. A far cry from last year, but I shouldn't complain about it. I don't do this often. In fact, I only buy scratch tickets during the holidays. Sometimes, you can win lots of money. Last year, I spent a similar amount and netted $300. A handsome win for a shitty year.

The first decade look backs are being released it seems. I did not click as I'm busy with something else.
The first decade in full consciousness for me. The first 5 years of 2010s are clouded in youthful drug consumption and problems tho :DDD I turned 18 in 2010 and went to my first real goa party a month before that. The later half is studying. I cannot even say what was relevant in the first half, despite analysis of the financial crisis. The last five years are migrants and /pol/itics. We could open a thread just for the 2010s as a decade, but maybe some Ernst want to give their look backs here, every dimension is welcome: personal or societal etc.

I only have memories of the second half of the decade. That's when I started reading and consciously working towards bettering my life.

Recently I've been looking through youtube channels I used to watch, and it's sad to see that most have either transformed their content for the worse, or stopped uploading at all. (But mostly just stopped uploading)
There's only one channel left from the Glory Days, and it makes me feel really weird. It's like I'm having butterflies in my stomach that content I used to watch is no more.

The weirdest feeling is that I know that my past self was fucking dumb, but I still don't feel an ounce smarter.

>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.

Alt tards are themselves clinical psychopaths more than anyone else. I haven't seen "leftists" committing any acts of terrorism in the last 20-30 years with the sole exception of Ted Kaczynski. Meanwhile we've had massive amounts of reactionary terrorism since then. It also doesn't seem to matter if they're in power or not. If they're not in power we get the Oklahamo City Bombing. If they are in power we get mass shootings at places of worship every month. If they get enough power we get the holocaust. This is because hardline reactionary ideologies stem from a central defect in personality also known as psychopathy. Hell the president we have right now is a clinical psychopath. Kontra because this isn't k*hl

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.

Maybe it's just a thing I grew up with. My old man loved malted milks so they were always around when I was young. I think his love for them has its origins in malted milkshakes back in his youth in the 40s-50s.

I ate some of them super hungry and they tasted better :DD they remind me of some Italian cookies, Mulino Biancos by Barilla. They have a few rather plain cookies and one these tastes pretty similar to malted milks. I guess I expected more milk or butter flavor, dunno how to describe it otherwise.

The milkshakes is an issue, I want to taste malted milk.

Well malted milk is a gruel or powder containing evaporated milk rather than milk with malt flavouring. It isnt the most descriptive term when considering what it actually is.

Old thread >>27969 is kill, this is the new Radio Ernstiwan thread. A few things happened since the last thread: The record of concurrent listeners has been pushed to a whopping 18 by /b/-based host chvk. On /int/ we had our very first call-in show, and subsequently our first caller ever. To everyone's surprise, that worked almost without any technical issues. Our hoster is doing a good job as far as I can tell, until now I couldn't find even a single issue with our server. Frontpage integration is also complete, which makes it a lot easier to notice when a stream is on, thanks again to Ernstadmin for his work!

The radio is available here: http://radio.ernstchan.xyz:8000/
Connection data for the public stream: see pic 3. See also the beautifully crafted pic 4 for additional details.

For now we have the following recurring streams:
/int/: Album of the week stream, every Saturday at 18:00GMT+2
/b/: Prostmusik with chvk, usually on Friday 20:00GMT+2, and Kosmonauten every 2nd Thursday (may vary) 20:00GMT+2

Also there are lots of spontaneous streams. If you want to participate either as listener or as streamer and have trouble setting everything up, just ask, there are plenty of people around who have a working setup and can help you out. There is also a howto page on the radio main page, which might answer your questions.

What are some good alternatives to Communism and Capitalism? Communism obviously doesn't seem to work so well except at industrializing and militarizing agrarian economies and has many of its own well known other problems, but I've been slowly coming to realize there's quite a lot wrong with Capitalism too. So what's the alternative? What are some other economic systems and theories worth trying? Also general econ thread thread I also just realized after typing that last sentence how much of a shitshow this could be so if it does go to hell mods can lock it and delete it but no politics please only as close to objective principles of economics as possible.

Also I think that automation has proven to not be such a miracle cure because you still end up with basically a serf or slave class like all empires and even feudal societies ended up being just without using animals or human beings as slaves and plus it just seems like it'll end up putting people out of work rather than everyone living easy lives thanks to fuller automation. Silicon Valley is a great example of how terrible that idea can turn out to be with fewer enfranchised people, more homeless, and less human control over anything like that terrible dystopian vision everyone seems busily embracing in some areas called "the internet of things." I really don't get the appeal of having a personal car where you don't have control over its operation anymore. That "feature" of mobile devices with less user control is already infuriating.

But I agree. I'm myself are well off and I just can not understand, how there are people who want more. Like what the hell to do with more than 100k/year (Ok, let it be 100k/year and 2Mio. once in your life).

this reminds me I've heard Disco Elysium described as a Slavoj Zizek simulator and I don't get the joke
The thing to keep in mind isn't even human nature's greed but something far worse which I think is tacit about Capitalism yet literally never discussed: the desire to control or have power over other people.

Actually now that I think about it the deliberate reason why this is never discussed is probably because it completely blows apart the one greatest myth about Capitalism which is that somehow a) any person get get rich if they're driven enough, and b) that being rich doesn't automatically make you have political power because Capitalism has been tried in Western democracies. Of course if you outright state that the real reason for the driving force of Capitalism is having enormous power over others then you're basically admitting that our representational democracy is a total fraud itself as well as admitting the free market ain't free. Both of which are probably true sadly.

Like my mentality is greed over one dollar is too many, because a billion is never enough. I was thinking about it last night and figured out that if I could just work a bydlo job and make $20,000 a year and have affordable housing that would be plenty enough for me. Almost the entirety of the driving force behind getting rich isn't about having things, but about having social status directly, which in America is tied directly to money probably unlike any other society. You can be the most boorish, horrible person and so long as you're richer American society says you're "better" than others.

Mainly food. I do it for fun despite having the appropriate funds to eat well and better than most.
I hit up the same dumpster last night and it was packed beyond belief with plastic rubbish, a search would have engulfed me or made a mess. I may be a vagrant and a dog, but I know someone has to clean up a mess that's made.

Also my next stop will likely be India. I need to properly learn some yoga and I've heard tales of their over the counter drug availability, which could please my frail heart until my wallet flutters in the wind as empty as my brain is.

Dear Ernst, today I crawled out of my cave yet again as my wörk contract starts in under a week.
To pass the time, I decided to look up an old tent (2nd pic related) and suss a new one. Hiking with a 2.5kg tent grows wearisome after 10km and coupled with a rough night's sleep.
So being the silly dupe that I am, my thoughts revolved around purchasing the same old green model to continue stealth camping in urban and remote areas. Besides I used this tent in North American winter with only minor damage to the tarp due to drunken negligence and never had any issues during thunderstorms. At 50£ and 1.6kg, it was my ideal and my love.
Yet the fucking company decided to swap the colour pattern to a black and yellow pattern. Who thought this was a good idea? I could pike the suit's head who believed this was a good move since this tent will absorb all of the heat in any sunny setting making it a portable oven, not that the last version was any cooler but still.
Fuck. At least advance research hasn't changed heir bivy's. And at least Vango has the right idea to keep a green tarp setting for their lightest tent model.
What makes me go bald is the absurb weight of most low end one man tents and the lacking green tarp option. An absolute disgrace.

Forgive me if one is already present in the catalogue, I'm sober and high on sleep deprivation.

What's your favorite drugs, my dudes?
I'm all about psychedelics every other full moon, with the odd time of weed now and then. NZ has very dear grass prices, with a gram of indoor or outdoor going for twenty NZD and ounces going anywhere from 200 (with the right connect) to 500, while usually hovering around 300 for an "ounce".

I have dabbled with opiates and they're a rare commodity on these islands. Thankfully the Chinese gold miners left heaps of opium poppies around their claims, so later this summer I'm going a hunting for poppies.
