Do you have a reputation, accurate or not, that influences how people perceive and approach you?

I seem to be seen as a liar or bullshitter. My own mother didn't believe me when I told her where to find the pepper in the kitchen. Granted, it was not my kitchen, but one I've been using often over the past six years.

Also, people who meet me the first time (or even years later) online, often react with "really?", no matter what kind of mundane things I post.

Inb4 multiple posts of "really"

Both of these things hit me especially hard, since my memory is just about the only thing in my brain that works the way it's supposed to.

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.

I prefer libredd.it (more stable instance: libreddit.silkky.cloud) to teddit.

> Reddit and Twitter are archived repositories of useful information that is often linked from elsewhere

> There only ever needs to be one search engine, and Google is it. And so on and so forth.
Can we please have at least two imageboards or 4chan will be enough? =D
I think it's a strange logic: "if two organisations provide same product, they should be one organisation" -- why? Don't you want to have one world monopoly producing cars or bread, for example? I bet you do, damn commie =D
And for sure Reddit is not a place for discussions, even by design. I think Livejournal would fit into such role much better. In addition to that, while theoretically subreddits act like separate websites, practically they can be banned by woke partisan moderation. This could be regulated by government by declaring such websites public platforms where administration has no right to ban anything except spam and illegal content like CP but there is no hope for that as in 2021 1-st amendment is considered harmful atavism left from 18-th century slave owners.

They're basically content parasites that link to other places. They're almost like an extension to google, since you google something and what you get is a post on reddit that compiles and links the information you need.

(I know that this thread might look like it's made by an immature specimen that does not know how humanity works, which is absolutely true.)
I want to ask Ernst about attention seekers and about the ways to effectively deal with them.
First i wanted to describe what sort of person i usually call an attention whore.
An attention whore:
>Talks a lot about meaningless stuff and himself.
>Will start an argument over nothing.
>Will gaslight you and play a victim.
>Will troll with stupidity and shitposts.
>Surrounds himself with weak-minded people who are somehow impressed with his behavior.
>Extremely materialistic and superficial.
>Has masochistic tendencies.
Now the last point i would like to elaborate on. An attention seeker LOVES when someone beats the crap out of him. He likes being a victim, he likes being insulted, assaulted, he literally enjoys it. Such a person will commit a mass shooting or a suicide or both, with one sole goal: to get noticed.

Guys i figured it out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So this type of person is called
>histrionic personality disorder
I came to the conclusion that the best way not to get triggered by attention whores is to
1) ignore them completely
2) laugh at them
3) never take anything they say seriously

You see apparently they have this massive ego that needs to be fed constantly and like i said before it's irrelevant what sort of attention they're getting.
They love when they are loved and they love when they are hated.
If you don't give them any or dismiss them and threat them as little children they literally die inside. The only dangerous thing about them is that IRL they might resort to violence when they are ignored.

I like this approach a lot. It creates an inviting atmosphere while still upholding the spirit of the board. Also it is a good shittest for new users to see if they are compatible without resorting to low blows or premature bans.

KC has been dead for years, but it seems the K*hl is going the way of all flesh, hence all the refugees.

What is the poverty line in Germany?
Do you not get any Bafög whatsoever? Are you living alone or in a shared flat? Do you have any expensive vices?
I am grateful I could study more-less in peace - my parents were just above the line for me getting Bafög (well, I think I would have literally gotten 2-3 Euros or so :-DDD), so I stayed at home. Even going by car daily was less expensive than moving out for me, also that way I was always available for doing chores in and around the house, but well, that was fair considering I didn't pay rent.
But I also took every job I could during the semester breaks, assembly line, shelf stocking, Hiwi was rather cozy, I preferred that.
When I started my PhD I actually moved to one of the most expensive cities (back then) and paid already over 400 Euros for just a single room 20m² apartment, at literally minimum wage (50% E13, amounting to barely 1100 Euros net). At that time I managed to live on only around 130-150 Euros per month (in total), so I even could save some money. In fact the first thing I stopped doing when I started to earn more than bare minimum was not caring about food prices anymore. That is the one luxury I am allowing myself. When I see cheese I fancy, I buy it. When I feel like eating steak, I get a steak. But if necessary I can also survive on cabbage, potatos and onions.

The day finally came this week. I just found out today that my junkie "cousin" fatally OD'ed two days ago. I put "cousin" in quotes because my mother was adopted. My mother knew exactly where she stood as her adoptive parents were quick to tell her, "Blood is thicker than water." After hearing the refrain throughout much of your life, you grow bitter and disgusted, but frankly, we're both thankful to God we share not one drop of blood with these people

My cousin was a malignant tumor given a human shape. Because of this woman's terrible childhood, grandpa pitied her endlessly. Even as recently as a year ago, he kept saying, "She's just a big kid," because she would always be the 5-year-old girl he'd stare at on his refrigerator door. I don't know what inspired her to take drugs, but I can tell you that she indeed suffered the worst possible circumstances growing up. Her father committed suicide before she was six months old. Her mother is a consummate grifter who shacks up with the lowest of low lives.

My cousin's teenage obsession with Kurt Cobain partly explains her inclination towards hard drugs, but she grew up with an endless stream of pain. She either decided early on that her prospects in life would be minimal (her mother did frequently berate her) or perhaps she simply had no interest in being productive, and what better way to explore new sensations than continually ingest newer and newer highs. Getting high simultaneously helped alleviate the pain of her childhood trauma and kept her close in spirit to the celebrities she idolized. Her grandpa would unconditionally support her, so the incentive to grow up simply didn't exist. In the end, grandpa viewed his granddaughter as a child who desperately needed to be nurtured.

Come to think about it, my grandpa wasn't exactly too far from Cotton Hill, although he steadfastly refused to talk about the war. In my mind, he might very well have killed fitty men with his rifle. My mother told me a few tales including the thanksgiving where the platoon was served a maggot-ridden turkey. I tried on a couple of occasions coaxing a tale or two out of him to no avail, but I was able to get him to talk about conversation between him and his fellow soldiers. They mostly talked about girls and jobs they'd be going home to.

To keep this relevant to the thread, it is of no surprise the number of Opioid deaths increased dramatically:

It seems they don't have the numbers from June 2020 to today, so it'll be awhile before we know the death toll for the latter part of the year.

Yeah I saw a guy I knew from AA ashamedly getting a bunch of beers. My real question though is how in the hell have drug dealers managed to still ply their trade through things like quarantines and lockdowns? Once all that started I imagined it would become a living waking nightmare for all kinds of addicts. In fact true story and very depressingly funny one, the exact reason why liquor stores got designated essential services earlier on is because they were bracing for all our hospitals getting swamped, which in the case of drunks would mean the lockdowns would push them past capacity immediately. This is because there's enough alcoholics in this country that were they to not get access to their booze they would begin going into withdrawal, and unlike most other drugs like heroin and crack cocaine the withdrawals from alcohol can straight up kill you. So rather than trigger a worse nationwide health crisis by flooding the hospitals with all our chronic drunks now suffering DTs and seizures they gambled that any drunken accidents would pale in comparison to the flood of alcoholics going into withdrawal, and so it was better to just keep us quiet and happy with our bottles while the authorities try to get the situation under control.
It would've been nice, if the country managed to not go full fucking retard all year long and we were not ran by an incompetent fool, but it is what it is as they say.

At least our countey finally leveled out somewhat, although it's now become an epic national tragedy that we couldn't just sit tight for a few months and swallow that painful medicine and dealt with it so we'd not have the long protracted painful disaster that we do now. Our more retarded states are opening up right now and dropping any mask mandates. Also DeSantis is a piece of shit.

Let's play some Minecraft on our /int/ server:
hub.dev-urandom.eu:25565 (version: 1.15.2)

Wiki with more information: http://dev-urandom.eu/
Overview map: map.dev-urandom.eu
IRC: irc.dev-urandom.eu - channels: #chat (ingame chat), #int
Pirate-friendly client: https://tlauncher.org/en/

Basic commands:
/spawn - Teleports you to the spawn.
/home - Teleports you to your home (set with /sethome or by sleeping in a bed like a fag).
/lb tb - Provides a melonblock that can show block changes.

Don't grief and don't be an asshole (obviously). Basically, you can build anywhere, although there are some limitations. There is enough space for everyone! Don't get discouraged by the autism of the server, things will get easier for you later. Also, mods, admins and other players may help you.

I really don't see a problem with denying mentally ill people certain professions.
In fact I think it should be expanded to sociopaths, cholerics, power-tripping assholes and so on. Imagine bureaucrats who don't get off on having power over people just for requesting a new ID or something.

I agree though that going into treatment itself shouldn't be brought into consideration for that, since as the other german said, the person with the untreated trauma is potentially more dangerous than the one who actually got some kind of therapy.
That of course would also warrant getting a better therapy system in the first place, which would also mean accepting certain kinds of mental illness as such and removing others.

This thread is dedicated to discussions and findings about the present, future and history of (digital) media and technology. They can concern culture, society, politics and philosophy. I know we have a science thread and a computer thread, but this thread is decicated to the humanities side of the issue, though this thread should not exclude (computer) science.

I will make my updates here regulary I hope, so this is a personal thread which should accompany my personal studies, but you are invited to post here as well. I will mainly review articles or books, perhaps post personal experience we often discussed imageboards here, which can boil down board culture, but also social composition, so that would be a topic, but also hope to link thoughts together in the future.

More or less: What are the consequences of a digital age in various domains, where are we heading and where do we/it came from?

The thread could contain questions like:

[*]What is the digital, what does this notion imply?
[*]What is media?
[*]The dawning of the notion of networks

I read further in the introduction. Over the last years immersing in that topic of cybernetics and systems thinking that permeates on so many levels and areas I was thinking about a subjectless novel or narration. To do away with self, write something were a character or characters is/are not the center of attention. Turns out the "systems culture" of the 1960s and 1970s (and the counter culture or at least the part of that counter culture that is also focused on in Lutz Dammbeck's The Net is a well in that systems culture) did already experiment with such a literature. Not just the fine arts got under attack by systems art (as the following quote will brushy briefly) but also the modern literature:

> Just as Greenbergian modernism had hardened into orthodoxy by the 1950s, so too had literary modernism been stripped of its radical thorns by the depoliticised, professionalised formalism of the so-called New Criticism. Long, complex narrative fiction shot through with esoteric jargon and modelled on abstruse scientific or computational principles; novels obsessed with networks of corporate and military power, secret knowledge and occult forces; narratives less interested in character and plot than in patterns, permutations, subliminal signals and feedback loops – the work of writers like Thomas Pynchon, William Gaddis and John Barth spoke to the largest, most highly educated generation of young (affluent white male) Americans ever assembled on college campuses deeply embedded in Cold War R&D.

Fantastic little book. It gathers interviews with tech workers. (Software) Engineer, data scientist, technical writer, founder, cook, massage, storyteller, and some more I forgot now.
The interviews are interesting and easy to read. Some things are known, some were new to me and the interview form makes it great to digest. The cook was especially interesting as an inside view of tech companies and the transformation of the Bay Area in general. The data scientists reminded me of one German and brick. Definitely the funniest interview next to the cook.

The present smart devices and smart appliances become so stale when you can get a glimpse of the past. It's a principle with a long history and innovation is grey

>[Mark] Weiser’s vision of the home and workplace as filled with small, intercommunication, unobtrusive intelligent devices was a vision of a world of such appliances, but Norman offers several rather more restricted, less futuristic, examples. He imagines the use of inexpensive, tiny cameras to beam information (the shape of the coffee table, the color of the sweatshirt) directly to family and friends while shopping. This is a natural extension of the current use of cell phone technology. (In fact, as I write the second draft of this text, I note that several cell phone companies offer “picturemessaging” with attendant ability for personal digital input.) Norman goes on to imagine houses with permanent wall-mounted weather displays, constantly showing the local forecast and conditions, to imagine (echoing Weiser) applications embedded in walls and furniture, and supermarkets where you simply wheel the laden shopping cart through a sensor, which scans each item and debits your bank account accordingly.
