Help me, Ernst! I am searching for everything from Biene Maya, Pettersson und Findus, Muumins and other kids cartoons from that time. Also old episodes from 'Wissen macht Ah!' would be nice. I can't navigate the german internet, the language actually isn't important, but I couldn't find any of them on the english.

Torrents are not very popular in Germany. https://gods.lu/ seems to be the private tracker of choice but I haven't used it personally. If you're looking for direct downloads maybe have a look at the sites here: https://toplist.raidrush.ws/

You can try https://s.to/ or https://bs.to/ for streaming series in German

Other than that https://kinox.to/ is the classic for movies. Quality is not the greatest, so there's maybe a better site out there by now if you do some research.

Would it be moral to select embryos for IVF that have lower polygenic risk scores for diseases like diabetes, hypertension, etc.? What if those diseases had epidemiological and perhaps genetic correlations with traits that we are less comfortable with people selecting for? When does therapeutic use become enhancement? For instance, lower cognitive ability in early life is associated with increased risk of late life dementia, as well as increased risk of schizophrenia. Should people be allowed to select on the basis of such criteria?

That's true.
It doesn't really harm the embryo to get a probe into mommy and collect some skin cells. But it could be problematic that a probe is put into mommy.

So people do pre natal diagnoses which is okay in my book, especially when you are 40 years old and considering the fact that a full gene sequencing is somewhere below 600€ today. It's not even an elite-thingy.
Also I like the thought that you can dodge abortion that way for the case that a seriousness health problem you couldn't handle would be detected. I think it's good to make 100% sure that this little thing will not suffer and is not concious when it goes into the bin (it's below <18 cells AFAIK).

t. Not an expert working in a very remotely related field knowing people doing such diagnostics

Just to clarify, I think you are conflating in vivo and in vitro. With IVF there is no "probe into mommy", the embryos are conceived and raised in laboratory dishes for several days, and only after that transferred into an actual womb. Also at this point there are no "skin cells" to speak of, cells aren't that specialized at this point of development AFAIK.

Does Ernst follow any professionally played videogames? To what extend?
From time to time i like watching Quake Live and CS:GO but i don't think i'm interested enough to actually visit any events like many other people do.

Some news:
McDonalds ended it's sponsorship with the German Football Association and instead focuses on eSport now.

The Danish Prime Minister just opened a Counter-Strike event in Denmark with a short speech.

Let's give this thread another try:

The CSGO major in Poland, IEM Katowice 2019, is going on right now and we already had a few nice games.
A new one is about to start so for everyone interested:

It isn't boring if you know what is going on or have EC tier borderline autistic tendencies. I've noted before murican football is the stupidest fucking thing ever and painfully boring even if you do know the rules.

>>13308
Well, one can argue. You remember Cold War? It could easily be argued what stupidity and toxicity was surrounding chess at the time because of it.

>>13309
The number of possible moves in chess are fixed. It's a tighter game in general, although I can see how the combination of timing and map like dedust makes it so you pretty much know what to expect professionally like sniper here, dude with pistol and noif hiding here etc. But still, CS is not even remotely like chess.

What does remind me more of chess is XCOM. I'd be interested to see the game played professionally and shared by kings and diplomats if it were one of the only games, which is primary reason why everything from Starcraft to CS to chess got popular. Issue with modern gaming is there's just too many to choose from and ironically kills off many communities because instead of 100k ppl playing one of a handful of games you have 100million playing many thousands of games so the player pool becomes smaller.

AFAIK not directly but you can probably apply some sort of Youtube SEO techniques to make your videos more appealing to the suggestion algorithm

BTW personally I started using a Chrome extension called DFTube* recently to block the recommended videos column and other unnecessary stuff so I don't waste as much time on YouTube. Very happy with it so far.

I'm afraid of trying anything since childhood because I'm constantly reminiscing too much about what other people would and had felt as consequence of my actions.
I'm a piece of shit. Years ago whilst being timid about myself and such I could have done something with my free time and youthfulness; energy.
Everyday before going to bed I wish silently that I could go back through time and just put one thing in my young mind: no one cares about you, you don't need to be protective.

Instead, I'm here --- wasted!

Except there is no ethnic genocide here. Like, at all. You're just broadly trying to stretch the argument to absurd generalities of complete isolationism versus intervention, as if actual legitimate US (or anyone's for that matter including Russian) imperialism and typical bullshit military adventures and CIA antics are somehow the same thing as the international community failing to prevent a genocide. Like I said, it is usually the US behind those sorts of things anyway in SA
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/El_Mozote_massacre
I should also point out that the "School of the Americas" is one of if not the most notorious institutes in the US and is literally a school for training terrorists and death squads. Among the many other notable graduates of that program are Los Zetas (who, the story goes, went rogue, though one wonders if they still have US intelligence contacts).

The reason why Abrams is under scrutiny is because of his involvement in that particular massacre, as well as numerous other human rights abuses throughout south America, as well as being one of the architects for the Iraq war, which ad you might recall resulted in civil war, genocide, continued instability throughout the region, and eventually ISIS.

If this was a genuine humanitarian operation of course we would be for it but I don't know why you expect me to believe you it's raining when my leg is being pissed on any more than all of us knew the Russians were lying through their teeth about Ukraine.

>Yes, I think it is given that at some point the international community has a responsibility to step-in or if not that sovereignty is effectively lost beyond a point.
Any "right-to-intervene" is just a shallow excuse to invade for purely selfish purposes. It's a way to justify imperialist adventures in an age where everyone outwardly agrees that imperialism is bad.

Assad is a better choice than the jihadis he fights against, and he's an order of magnitude less evil than our good friends and allies in Saudi Arabia, who are consciously inflicting starvation and cholera on half of a nation of 28 million. Any moral claims from a government which supports the Saudis and goes on a warpath against Iran or Maduro can be dismissed out of hand.

>Well, yes. Acting in complete disregard for international law is more serious offence than exploiting a lacuna.
A rather convenient philosophy for the parties that create the rules.

thank you. i can't remember the name, but that first study must be the one, although it is actually from ireland, not from scotland.
the findings from the 2nd study are quite interesting, they assessed a fairly large number of samples, yielding an overview of genetic variety in that region and they also found that the last auerochs who died in poland was basically a mutt of auerochs and regular cattle.
anyway, there's still a loooong way to go, a full auerochs chromosome set is required for cloning, which does not exist, unfortunately. so breeders still must resort to slowly modify the genome of regular cattle.

>revealed a relationship between the European Bison and the Aurochs
afaik the wisent is supposed to be the result of interbreeding between auerochs and (now extinct) european steppe bison.

Very good infographic about Russian brain drain. Brain drain is bad for any country, but in general immigration is good for the world, because people tend to migrate/work in places where their skills are more needed and will be used with greater efficiency. But while immigration doesn't harm the well-being of people in general, there are things that consume resources, don't increase the productivity of people and don't lead to a more successful economy for Russia or the world as a whole, such as military. Every penny spent on army is a wasted penny. Of course defence spending reduces unemployment and funds research of certain technologies, but if people would spend the same resources on education, healtchare, infrastructure or technology grants they would receive greater benefits for the same price.

Can we have quality thread on this topic? I honestely dunno what to disscuss specifically - types of anthropomorphism, your favorite pictures, talk about theoretical anatomy and other possibilities, searching for different media with anthro animals.

I don't like all "furry" resourses where I been - not people that I want to talk with, not people who cares about interesting disscution, just some teenagers who jerk off on mediacore quality hentai pics.

Ah yes, to not harm other posters post nsfw pictures under spoilers. Hope there will be people who interested in this thematics as much, as myself. And maybe we can attract to club more new people.

Interesting picture with systhematic of different dragon-like creatures. I always was interested in idea of different dragon-like sub-species. Sadly, not many fantasy using it as foundation for eco-systems or society ierarchy
Pic also not covers all types of such creatures in myphology, such as eastern slavic "serpet-of-moutians" which is basicly dragon, but with multiple heads like hydra

I mean it really depends. I absolutely fucking hated it when such things are randomly inserted in a scifi setting, like that one 4x game where there's two alien races that are just dragons. I don't think it's impossible to pull off, but is extremely unlikely to ever not be crap in a scifi setting and like 99% of the people who would think to do that aren't going to pull it off. In a fantasy setting it really depends. I personally was never a big fan of the whole elves and princesses and dragons thing when younger, and I especially am tired of it now, but it can be cool. I think the main thing to me is if you can actually come up with plausible excuse to wave it off. Like a fire breathing animal is funnily enough not inconceivable. We have a beetle that sort of does that. We even have electric shocking animals, and you would think creating an explosive fiery exothermic chemical reaction wouldn't be much harder to pull off than venom. I just want some reason why they would exist in the setting and how they work but sadly most things from Game of Thrones to Shadowrun basically say "lol it's magic I ain't gotta explain shit"

Well, to say honestely absolute majority of "science fiction" is just "space fantasy". And even if science fiction tring to follow "science" prediction it early or late become outdated with new scietific discoveries and fall into "fantasy" category too, for good or for bad.

>I don't think it's impossible to pull off, but is extremely unlikely to ever not be crap in a scifi setting and like 99% of the people who would think to do that aren't going to pull it off.
Well, when I was much younger I was kind of science fiction/fantasy purists, because my knowlege about it was in range of Warcraft1-3 and some basic science fiction movies.

After I discovered for myself Warhammer, both FB and 40k, Might and magic, Dark Crystall, Star Wars EU, Flash Gordon, Elder Scrolls, and all kinds of shit like that that expanded my horison of knowlege, all walls between ssetings and genres melted for me. For me nowdays exist only one wall - realty and science on one side, imagination and creativity on other side.
