Sometimes I get such severe secondhand embarrassment / fremdschämen from watching a situation depicted in a film or TV show that I have to stop watching: for instance, if a character is about to disappoint someone or do something wrong and get caught.

does this happen to anyone else

It's the opposite, too much empathy and understanding of social taboos. I brought this up once or twice irl and it seems to be common when you're watching something on your own.

I know that feel. Well, maybe not quite as badly as you, but I had to stop watching Peep Show since Mark was making me cringe too hard.

I feel like it's gotten much better and rarely happens (not sure if I've become less sensitive or because I watch things that don't make me cringe), but sometimes it's still too much.
Recently I pretty much stopped watching The Sopranos, mainly due to Carmela making me uncomfortable.

Oh god, Peep Show is definitely Exhibit A in that regard.

to me kc died in 2014 when axel stoll passed away, because axel stoll was the last real /b/ meme. i miss old kc /b/ and /int/ 2008-2011, also 4chan 2005-2009. i'm not sure what exactly caused it, but in my opinion imageboard culture had slowly deteriorated on kc since winnenden, more rapidly since 2011 and was non-existent in 2014. in 2015 kc looked already like kohlchan today.

Willkommen! This thread is for the sharing and discussion of short-films of all kinds.

I would like to start with two films directed by Russian filmmaker Andrei Khrzhanovsky that are of importance and demonstrate the technical level Soviet/Russian animation once operated on.

>The Glass Harmonica (1968)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmhZS4hr2gU

The first (and allegedly only) animated film banned in the USSR for its depiction of totalitarianism and censorship of the arts. Inherently it has an anti-capitalist message in the role money plays turning people into monsters but you can obviously see what is really at work.

What is interesting about this other than the on the nose message is the use of historical artwork in a surrealist format. It was a very daring film even for life in the Khrushchev Thaw.

There's a small kernel of truth in your post buried under shit tons of incel rage.

"Nice guys" supposedly made up the backbone of society, but I don't know a single woman who ever liked them. A woman tolerated a nice guy if his career prospects were promising or if her woman's parents like him, but women always preferred men they were more in awe of. The fantasy has always been Prince Charming, not some clodhopping farm boy or a stuffy manager with a steady office job. Women also weren't given a choice in those days, so they put up with the charmless dorks to avoid being disinherited.

To be honest, I don't blame the ladies. It may seem that these women exercise more rational thought picking shoes than they do men, but there's always a primitive part of the brain that instinctively knows charming bad boys trump nice guys when hard times hit. They're likelier to survive a nuclear holocaust than any slovenly obese neckbeard or testosterone-drained, small souled bugman. In fact, some of these self-described nice guys are devious and abusive in ways Colonel Chad could never even fathom. Even a rich CEO or successful lawyer / doctor doesn't have the same charm as a hardened criminal or a soldier who killed fitty men.

Anecdote: I went to school with a guy who showed off his mid-semester report card scoring a 0.85 GPA during his freshman year. He couldn't have been a worse student if he tried, and he prided himself on his lack of scholarly ambition, but he was very much in shape and athletically inclined. He was also quickwitted and possessed a solid set of street smarts. I doubt he was truly stupid, but he was certainly not interested in learning. After graduating, he went into the military and spent a few years overseas before becoming a project manager at some company. Meanwhile, he married a very gorgeous looking girl and had two kids with her. She even acknowledged he was (and still is) a bit of a punk ass, but she's convinced he's changed for the better.

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 time ago I wanted to banter at USA on topic being them a third-world country because water is more expensive than cola. I didn't find the pic and I still haven't :DDDDD, so I didn't post anything at all. Later, during the act of bowing to world imperialism making an order in one fast food chain, I noticed that water is more expensive there as well, what's more - usually everywhere simple water branded bottles are more expensive than cola at Pepsico or Coca-Cola Co. They make us drink sweetened water, they consciously make our bellies bigger so we would want to eat more and more.
Any initiative fire to stop this nonsense and force companies to make carbonated drinks more expensive than pure water because they'd never make pure water cheaper will be extinguished with piles of money, so I just came to outrage.
Thanks for attention.

US have a notoriously bad water supply system.

Just think of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flint_water_crisis

or

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ApZkNsXfJE

I experienced it myself, when I was for 3 months in the US. I was living at a suburb for well-offs. Water out of the tab you couldn't drink, as it was of such poor quality that they had to chlorinate it heavily so that the people could use it at least for showering without getting sick.

>well-offs.

Well-off is maybe a little mistakable, as it is a matter of definition.
Lets say upper middle class. Or middle class till lowest upper class. It was not a neighborhood the likes of Floyd Mayweather junior are living
But is was residential district with considerable big houses, middle sized gardens, where the Latinos gardeners came to do the gardens, most of the houses had fancy ornaments, e.g. pillars the houses' front.

Yeah that's called being well off. Well off doesnt mean rich neccesarily, or certainly not oligarch rich, but if you live in a fancy house in a nice neighborhood with stone pillars and a gate at the end of your driveway and hire crews to do your gardening and landscaping then you are lost definitely well off. Landscapers aren't cheap. I was at this one job where the guy wasn't just well off but actually rich. He spent $100,000 on landscaping that year. This is the equivalent of blowing $100k to do your gardening and yard work. If you can afford to pay twice the median income just on your yard work, you are rich, maybe even obscenely rich. If you spend even $30,000 on landscaping in a year, you are probably really rich. You don't have to be rich to have a maid or gardener, but you definitely have to be pretty well off.

When communicating in English do you sometimes make mistakes because you often see native speakers make them? Which ones get you?

Grammar and spelling mistakes are really common in with native Englishers online, I imagine that must really mess with people trying to learn. Please discuss this topic.

Except Y generally.

A young bird. A Sea Urchin. An Urchin. Generally speaking it's a cadence thing. A urchin is awkward to pronounce, whereas an urchin allows an-urchin to sort of roll together whereas a-urchin requires a stop. English, particularly American English, is a very clippy language. We like saying things in the shortest possible amount of time, with the exception of our overreliance on articles to begin with (I can see how Slavic and other languages drop the/a/an so much because it's really not always necessary). A yogurt. A hundred yogurts although some people or maybe it was archaic English didn't pronounce the H making it an hundred yogurts.

A good rule of thumb maybe is if you can pronounce it like it's part of the same word without breaking your cadence, use an. If the next sound is consonant not a vowel use a. A-cow, a-youth, an-ox. Notice how all these could basically just be pronouned single words. A-ox, an-youth, an-cow, not so much.

I'm trying to self-teach myself piano and it's not going well (no surprise there).
I have basic knowledge on correct hand position and movement also I know elementary music theory.
Currently, I'm trying to learn a new piece - Aquaria Ending
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VbWBM5-CvY
and I've doubts about correct fingering for the left hand.
The problem starts right at the start when I need to jump from A to B flat (pic 1)
I've tried to land on 5th finger, but it is quite thin so it slips very easily from a black key;
now landing on the 4th finger is more stable but where do I go from there? If I play F with the second finger a lot of tension is unavoidable.
Playing F with thumb and then going over it with 2nd on B flat and finishing with 5th on F (pic 2) sounds fine but feels overly complicated since I need to move my arm a little up and to the side from the shoulder to complete the thumb over motion.
Sure there is a simpler solution that I'm not seeing.
