I have a question: "Wann ist der Unterricht aus?"
Can I answer like this: "Der Unterricht ist um 10 Uhr aus."?
Thank you for your answers!

Ah, now I'm getting your point.
Not sure if I have a satisfactory answer, but apparently "ein paar" is classified as an indefinite numeral, and as such it is not inflected.
Other examples of that group are "ein bisschen", "ein wenig", genug, viel, wenig.

Notice that viel ("much") can be used non-inflected for non-countable things, but viele ("many") is inflected for countable things. Same goes for wenig vs. wenige.
With a definite article, wenig and viel become inflected even with non-countable things: wenig Regen, der wenige Regen. As mentioned, "wenig" is an indefinite numeral, but in "der wenige Regen" it becomes an adjective. Different grammatical role, different grammatical rules.

Today I discovered that my cell provider deducted about 4 dollars for the subscription I never, being aware, subscribed. First I contacted call center, they said like they can't return the money because "the service was provided correctly", so I said I'm writing an official complaint. So I had to walk to the cell provider office and then they accepted my complaint. Waiting 30 days, as required by law.

They tried to scam you. It's only fair you try to devise as many additional layers of ways to create more work particularly paperwork for them in retaliation and be sure to find some way yiu create more work for actual management. Trash talk the company loudly and start petitions to get people to switch service. There are many ways to be spiteful in this life.

Is Ernst into Watches?
>>
No. 43892
Yeah, but all the ones I like are much too expensive, also I can't stand having a wristband anymore, so the only actual watch I own is a pocketwatch I got from my mom for christmas some years ago, but I never wear it because my pockets are already full and I rarely wear suits (and never vests).

It's a great and robust watch. The movement isn't the best in the world but it's good enough for the price range the watch is in.

I think i paid around 250€ but there's also a cheaper quartz version of the series.

I still like it a lot and would buy it again.

I'm considering getting a watch for the first time since almost 10 years currently, more for drip related reasons than the actual looking at the time function obviously.

So since I found out about the based strikes at the French LIP factory in the 1970ies (for the interested: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LIP_(company)#1973:_beginning_of_the_strike_and_demonstrations ) a while back I decided to look at what they offer today (which has got nothing to do with the strikes and worker self managment obviously, but anyway).

So what do you guys think about these two models?

The first one even got some history:
>Fred Lip returns to Europe convinced of the future of electric watches. The prototype of the world's first electric wristwatch was presented in 1952 at the Paris Academy of Sciences. This innovation represents "a masterpiece of timing and quality". The watch equipped with the revolutionary R27 movement was launched in 1958. Fred Lip is proud to offer this watch to General de Gaulle and then to General Eisenhower.
Personally I'd like a mixture of both - the GDG being a bit too minimalistic and the Marinier being a bit too packed when it comes to thickness of the clock-face, but well: can't have everything, I suppose.

Because I do not know who Linkola is, is it better not to paint and admit you know nothing but wish to know more, or is it better for the one eyed man to boldly go painting his tile half blindedly? Does the bold man be behooved into blind action, if only for the sake of decisiveness, or is it better that man watches others paint tiles? Can his tile be painted better had he seen no one else do it at all, for sake of false doctrines? Or shall a man paint half his tile, only to paint wrongly and travel so far back to paint his other half, and to paint the measure again? Shall we even have our measure of wheat for a penny, or shall all the sows be barren and every cow thin? How many thin cows does the man give us who paints his tile halfly, blindly, or not at all? Of what consequence is a tile painted raw and half a measure of barley?

Can you guys come back to KC (kohlchan)? The mods don't ban people for having left of center viewpoints anymore and they starting to ban CP. KC is a political echochamber now and we need people like you to mix it up.

And you fucking people wonder why we want nothing to do with you and I wish the worst fates on all of you. These two posts themselves speak volumes about the kind of filth I don't even see as human anymore inhabiting those boards and why I want you all to be violently purged. The fact you don't even see anything wrong with it anymore or still are willing to frequent such a place speaks volumes about what sort of things you have become and in some cases probably always had been. I have no idea why you'd think anyone here or elsewhere would want to have anything to do with you. The fact many of you are also casually on the edge of being legit terrorists also says a lot. Then rather then even attempt to redeem yourselves you just keep sinking lower.

That said, the irony of "anti-degeneracy" wannabe-natsocs surrounding themselves with pedos is pretty funny. Though it's not very attractive to a lot of KC diaspora, on multiple levels.

is Ernst interestee in martial arts?

I used to train Karate with my father and recently decided to pick it up again.

And as with all asian martial arts there are a lot of misconceptions and mystique surrounding it, mostly because of movies and such.

Fun fact, the "Chi/Ki" was never supposed to be a mystical inner energy you could draw from to get magic strength.

Rather it's a controlled breathing technique that once you train you can use to give your punches and kicks a bit of an extra oomph.

It doesn't substitute strength training at all.

Another thing people mix up is Zen buddhism philosophy and martial arts. It emphasises passiveness and self defense when in fact those martial arts were much morr aggressive in nature, born out of the need to subjugate, kill and maim other people.

thankfully a number of hema sword fighting styles are alive and well today, but it would be really cool if the same could be said about hema wrestling/grappling styles, like shown in e.g. talhoffer's manuscript. we could have ju-jutsu/judo vs. hema fights then, although it surely would take a while if hema wrestling masters could rival the likes of kyuzo mifune or shohei ono.

I did a wee bit Karate as a kid, but it was Shotokan and gay as fuck.

Then long time nothing until I started Kickboxing in my 20s. It was good fun, but I am not really flexible.

Then I moved and did regular boxing for a bit, which I really like.

After moving again, I tried longsword fencing. It's great fun, but apart from the trainer there was only one other person who did any sports outside of this and the rest was fat/skeleton nerds of the type you would expect to be into that kind of stuff. Felt bad having to practice with someone like that if you had to take a break after a single lane.

The longsword trainer should maybe introduce warm ups that give basic endurance - and scare away most lvl 82 wizard/warrior dual class players

Why is Shotokan gay? I don't know about Karate.

Oh don't worry, we do a proper warmup as you would in every other combat sport or sports practice in general. But since we're all nice and everyone at their own pace blablabla those that can't just walk instead of jog.

Shotokan karate - at least the way we practiced it - was a square stance, endless katas and virtually no real life application. Stuff like stopping before hitting the enemy and such, things you can do with women and children. If you like doing movements it's ok, like Tai Chi, but for actual combat stuff you'd need to find one of those 70s karate dudes who regularly beat each other up.
Then there is for example Kyokushin karate, whose founder basically just liked to beat people up and developed the style in that direction. Legend has it he punched a bull unconscious. Kyokushin tournaments are full contact and a foot to the face is common.

Good morning Ernstchan. I'm a wandering anon from Endchan who visits your chan sometimes and wanted to ask you guys a question. We were going to be having a movie night on our site's cytube channel soon and wanted to know if any of you were interested in joining us to view it? We'd really like to have you bernds around.

We will be streaming "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou" a film directed by Wes Anderson on October 3rd if you are interested. Streaming time would be 19:00 AEST (09:00 UTC) and 20:00 UTC. I can also put your board's mascot in our poster if you guys want to be a part of that too.

I also don't want to seen as a nuisance, so if the Mods or anons in general don't like this post, I can delete it in order to not be a bother.

>Even the colonization efforts of the new world were at first largely funded by the crown iirc and that at least was just several months of voyages, not the year and a half to three years it would take us just to get to Mars and back
For the record, the first voyages of the discovery age were funded almost entirely by private lenders. The crowns of Portugal and Castile relied heavily on investment from Genoese traders to fund their colonial projects. Additionally, these voyages would very much take a year and a half to three years. Vasco da Gama's first voyage left Lisbon on the 8th of July 1497, only returning on the 29th of August 1499.

Another note is the use of Chartered Coporations in historical colonialism all the way up to Halliburton in Iraq depending on your definitions. It's more like they were never /not/ involved in that kind of thing. Dunno where American is getting his stance from tbh. Plus if you don't think aerospace corporations are making bank off of ostensibly 'public' programs by manufacturing and design contracts then you're just deluded. The corporations don't need to put their name on the program in order to get rich off of it, in fact they get paid whether it goes well or tits up.

I was aware of that but my admittedly limited understanding was that it was nevertheless being directed through the crown. Even Halliburton in Iraq. Those efforts were all being organized by national governments basically regardless of where they organized the resources from.
