Easier life in physical sense. Many diseases are cured, modern medicine allows more and more children to remain alive, who a century ago would just die before 5 years.
Manly men are here, you just exchanged manliness for convenience and modern society.

I have a great-grandfather who served in the army. He died years before I was born, but some stories about his time in the service have been passed down to me. He was in France 100 years ago today and probably felt immense relief that it was over coupled with sadness over the deaths of the soldiers he befriended.

I know quite a lot about the music from the 1910's, so I'll share some interesting American songs from World War I.

"Joan of Arc" sung by Willie Weston in May 1917.
https://archive.org/details/78_joan-of-arc_willie-weston-bryan-weston-wells_gbia0013578b
This song represents an unusual aspect of American support for entry in World War I - sympathy for France's plight. There has been a historic appreciation for France because they gave important help to us in the War for Independence. Since the fighting in Europe posed no threat to us across the Atlantic, the threat it posed to France was used to drum up sympathy. The singer, Willie Weston was a popular vaudeville performer who came from an English theatrical performing family that immigrated here when he was a child. He frequently participated in entertainment shows at rallies to sell war bonds to help finance the war.

"For Your Country and My Country" sung by Willie Weston in May 1917.

>I like to pass it off as respect, same way for animals as for humans: if you don't want to be bothered, I assume that you have a good reason for that, so no further opinions from me will follow, and I certainly won't try to force interaction where none was requested.

It's not called forced interaction but caring for someone. You can't and shouldn't care for everyone, but if you really care for someone you will sometimes have something as what you'd call forced interaction. Some people even want that to happen. Force and the will to power isn't a bad thing ok. Imagine, some people even want to be punished, they want their actions to be sanctioned and see that you care about what they do. It might be more hurtful and disrespectful of an other person's feelings to signal that you just don't give a shit and give up so easily which might be seen as simply not caring enough.

Well yes, there's a fine and often blurred line between respect and contempt. At least, my attitude is the same in both cases. Saves a lot of mental effort. Being needy of someone, and also pursuing someone out of a grudge, or even wanting people to need you, I view to be immature and feminine behaviors. It's how women act.

I don't see how somebody not caring about you is a problem at all. Their care or lack of it is their own problem/business. Imagine a stranger walks up to you on the street and says "I don't care about you". Great, the feeling is mutual, so there's no problem.

In general, I don't like to patronize/validate someone as if he was my property or something. Whether he wants to be validated/patronized, well, that's his own problem, innit. I don't see why I owe anyone attention, and furthermore, feeling entitled to other peoples' attention in the first place seems selfish to me.

In general, I trust others to be independent, proud individuals who don't need no authority or crutch or validation or whatever from other people. If they aren't such people, well, that's their problem again, huh.

Yes, I confused EU and non-EU students.

Ok, now you haven linguistics BA. Many specialized maszer programms are english only, you have to look up then how you credits match the credits needed to start the master. E.g I have done history classes on democracy and democracy critique and political representation, if I would like to study political science as a Master now, they would account these for the 60 points which are usually needed to start a master.

you could also study anglistics / English studies everywhere I guess, the former at least as a fair share of linguistics as far as I know.

Well the student fees haven been abolished, but you will still pay some "quality"-fee which is quite an political outrage. I was voting for Green party when I started to study (that was reasonable because they wanted to abolish fees) just to have them introduce a smaller fee.
But maybe I just didn't look up their program well enough.

The 1500€ are for non-EU-students only.
Especially good students from Russia, Ukraine or China and India have a big problem with that.

In general military news, Hungary decided to open a new arms factory where we'll be producing licenced Czech armaments. The plan is to manufacture 200k guns over a course of 4 years or something.
Some will go to the Honvédség because they are still using soviet era guns.
It's part of a military modernisation program.
Apparently we'll be buying Turkish tanks too.

What websites does Ernst frequent other than EC?

I used to spend a lot of time on different topic related internet forums and websites but then i got a slave to chans somewhere around 2006 or 2007 and i left the other internet behind.

Nowadays are Nu-EC, Youtube, Wikipedia and, as a guilty pleasure of mine, Reddit the only sites i regularely visit (next to some porn sites)

I have no idea where the hate for Reddit comes from by the way, if you ignore the comments underneath the content there are some pretty fun subreddits.

They're a lost cause. This was true a decade ago when people were still trying to save it.
>It is only us that can instill the proper values, the right attitudes and the correct ways of reasoning into the larger masses, by personal example.
I can't tell if this was meant to be satire. Even ignoring the personal example part, you have to keep in mind a shithole like /pol/ not just /b/. It was true of bernds also. You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink. I always saw bernds whining about this or that but they outright rejected any advice or offers of help.

Look at Ernstchan. This board is determined and made special not by what is visible, it's content and posts and discussions, but in the first place by what is unobserved and intangible: the attitudes and the posting culture of it's residents. And that is a meme (in the old-fashioned meaning of the term), that is a behavior that can be acquired over time. If you truly help just a single person, soon, the entire community will be transformed - I hope you can perceive the logic behind this.

I looked at his channel before and was not particularly impressed. It seems to me that he gets all his information from rate your music, wikipedia, /mu/ charts, and Scaruffi.
I don't think he is anything special; he just capitalized on a untapped market for a specific niche in an effective way. For me to watch/listen a music reviewer/recommender they need to offer me something that is not just a guy's cursory opinion or a summary off rym. Very little that he has talked about was new to me. If I've already listened to many of the albums and genres that he recommends, he has nothing to offer me except his personal opinion, which I care little about anyways as he tends to follow rym trends and not be original or unique in his perspective. I am not saying that he is a no effort hack or talentless or stupid; he just does not really offer anything new to anyone that has already gotten "into" music.

Examples of music channels that I like (that aren't about teaching instruments or music theory):

Samuel Andreyev
-A Canadian composer that both analyzes music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=77OL5ekPnk8
and gives interviews with seldom interviewed artists: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VWgfVVbK4bA

Do you know about the "American Nihilist Underground Society"?

"ANUS was started in 1987 by Spinoza Ray Prozak and Chromatic Death, with L.B. Noire, Royal Flush and The Innocent joining one year later. From 1987-1992, ANUS ran a series of highly celebrated free speech/non-taboo bulletin boards that attracted hackers, metalheads, activists and artists.

After several run-ins with the law and others who found the idea of non-taboo/free speech/free thought disturbing enough to censor it, from both left and right, A.N.U.S. regrouped as we tried to find a way to explain our vision. Eventually, the thought process of our founder -- a somewhat unique interpretation of nihilism -- grew into a full-fledged philosophy which we have been trying to explain ever since.

From 1991 to 1995, A.N.U.S. maintained an internet presence through an FTP archive, overlapping a web server from 1993-1996 that was later supplanted by the anus.com domain name. Since 1996, A.N.U.S. has continued growing at its current address and has been busily offending newspapers, governments, wikipedia and keyboard warriors alike." - http://www.anus.com/zine/about/

Hello. Let me introduce me. I used to post on Krautchan, as the bunny chilean bernd. Since it demise a few months ago i decided it was a good time to take some time to do more productive things in my shitty life. Things are going smoother now, so i guess, since i have more time, i could go back and start posting again in some imageboard. After looking wide and long on the new colonies of good'ol KC, i have decided to settle here, for a while. I wish this place was a little more active, since there threads alive from June on the front page, and this place gives me the vibes more than a light version of Northpole than KC.
Since i dont want to waste a thread on a presentation, this is my third bunny. I got it from an old lady who captured her, and gave it to me because she didnt had any space to take care of it. Shes wild, so i had big trouble taking her out of her cave that day.

Talking about pets, is it justifiable to perform surgeries them for owner's convenience? Most neuter them, but some don't stop there and take out claws so they wouldn't hurt furniture or cut vocal cords so they wouldn't have loud voice. Does neutering belong to the same category as claws and vocal cords category?
Maybe it's better to not own them if you know that you can't afford them life without hurting them?

> is it justifiable
Generally speaking a lot of things can be "justifiable" with varying shades of no, but I think the word you may mean is ethical, in which case it is varying shades of no.
>cut vocal chords, declawing
It isn't
>spaying and neutering
Mainly this is actually done to cut down on the number of ferals, which of course in turn leads to more animals with more sufferings getting randomly hit by cars and such or given away to "shelters" which execute most stray cats and dogs they get without ever finding them a home.

Pretty much. Tails on lambs is very justifiable though depending on where you live. In many parts of the world, if they don't have the tails taken off it gets flyblown or other nastiness more often than not and they don't have the same control over it as cattle do so they're not losing a tool they can use anyway. It's genetic dead weight that when taken off is done for health reasons and not for aesthetics. Just an interesting corner case to the phenomenon.

I recommend you guys get into B-movies (action and drama genres) from the 80s, 90s and 2000s, they are a lot more soulful and much less toxic than the big Hollywood ones with famous actors and cgi like those listed on the other movie thread which makes me want to puke.

These movies often have bad acting but they're based in reality, they have people working at supermarkets and not nonsense. Watching B movies turned my life around, I'd work hard all day then watch them at dinner time. It gives you something to look forward to and something to think about.

Haha, I get it, though I've never experienced it in German. It was the same when I was growing up with Russian dubs, it was often just one person dubbing in monotonous voice over the original audio track. And afaik they even still do it today to some extent

It's the same in polish. People got so used to the narrator that they don't see reasons to dub every voice with a single voice. I actually find it very comfy and interesting. It even feels a bit more natural to me than for example german dubs, as movies with polski lektor usually feel like the narrator is translating the text to the audience, original voices can still be heard.
