Not in the everyday. Usually it's just by whatever place you're from. It simply explains our local neighbourhood as a distinct entity better than the more common 'APAC' does. I would use Australasian but that's just bound to cause confusion :-DDD. Australia, New Zealand and the South-West Pacific Islands tend to have a lot of contact. It's a common joke to say that at any given time there are more Samoans in South Auckland than there are in Samoa.

>But again, I wouldn't say that the differences were that grave, I'd say the differences between people of the same nation are bigger than the overall differences between two nations.

I'd agree with this. Even when I ended up in a relationship with a Japanese girl she became a normalish working class girl once the local culture had rubbed off on her :^)

I mean, your girlfriend is going to do annoying girlfriend stuff no matter and you're still going to be her assburglary man. You're just trading cultural bonds for interesting conversation by being a xenophile.

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.

This thread is dedicated to multiple things mainly self defense and improvement of health. One of the major benefits of exercise is that it boosts up your confidence and helps you contain your hatred for the world. I know because it helped me slightly but moreso God helped with that. The main thing exercise should be done for is for the benefit of the individual and for the protection of those precious to him. For while we live in dark times I believe there will be a better future. if you believe in God and I believe taking care of one of the many gifts of God is a good place to start.

A man's body is made in the likeness of God it is supposed to represent the love God has for his creation that he made it in his own image. Thus it should be up to the individual to keep the body up to a respectable standard for God. For God dislikes the lazy which admittedly I still struggle with. If you only lift for women your doing it wrong. Wanting women through exercising is nothing more than a selfish desire to nab a virtous women simply surrender yourself to God and he will guide you into the light.

I advise against using weights. God gave you a body train it through intense bodyweight exercises. Afterall there is no greater tool in a man's arsenal than his own body. Bodyweight has numerous benefits like more flexability, convenience and its completely free unlike weights while yielding similar or even better results if you become dedicated. God will always be with you and he can guide you to a better future if you put your faith in him that he sent his son who died on the cross for your salvation.

>Another thing we should discuss is dieting. Out of many things this will be the most difficult because of the amount of stress it will be for many for quitting many foods that they enjoy. Either way I suggest eating a large amount of berries, wholewheat bread, dairy products, Meat, fruit and vegetables
I once went from 140kg down to 95kg just from cutting a few things out and going for a walk every evening, this took a year in total. Towards the end of it I never even felt hungry even though I lived on soup and soda-bread snacks and a small homecooked dinner every day. Water was pretty important too, drinking a pint of water the minute you wake up is a very good practice to have.

Hello Ernst,

Today the topic also, is unironically, very Ernst.

I got hacked browsing the darknet, my Screen/Microphone on the PC and Camera on my phone have been monitored, etc.

Apparently my Browser had been "fingerprinted", whatever that means. By tracking my IP they poached me on a VoIP program on the clearweb as a group and started bullying and gaslighting me.

I also am often sleep deprived and was in a very malleable state of mind at that time, my mind had in order to cope with the situation come up with a reason for why it was happening;

They were trying to help me, I'm a detestable person and they're helping me change.

I managed to snap out of that "Psychosis" the next day but made the mistake of allowing myself to think that the abuse was also a result of my temporarily altered state of mind. Big mistake.

If I were still in that state of mind, I'm certain I would think of you as one of them, however, you describe it a lot better than I ever could. I try not to think about it, pretty successfully at that. Cycling and some basic socializing has been a decent remedy, I almost feel like a person again. I just hope it was Methamphetamine cessation, I read some Japanese studies from the 60's that state remission rates of 85% after the first month, I hope I'm not schizophrenic to be honest, and I also hope that Methylphenidate at therapeutic doses is still viable as a treatment option for my ADHD.

These are all legitimate questions and I should take them to a trained professional, but I'm scared of being labeled. I'll go if there's a "next time" in my straight edge life to come.

At this stage I feel rather schizophrenic about the whole episode.. I'm afraid for my sanity but at the same time.. The shit I pulled of was truly amazing. I managed to pay my way out of a 50€ bill at some nightclub by paying 10€ and proclaiming the standards of the joints to be beneath me as a reason. I did NOT get beat up, talked the cab driver into driving me back to taksim square for free, because he got me into the situation in the first place.. almost worked out. He wanted 10TL (about 2€) which was 20TL short of what I would have had to pay under normal circumstances, I refused out of principle because we had a deal, it almost came to an ass kicking but again I eluded justice.

That's just the tip of the iceberg, you could say, instead of finding my inner devil I had found my inner chad, I'll try to summon that one in the future without the paranoid delusions.

It was something like this, which is not hard to see how after a hundred thousand years of mutations could become a sort of land dwelling lizard. The problem is most of these people are frankly just too stupid to be able to conceptualize what a hundred million years would even be like. To them it's just words. 6000 years is the maximum their tiny brains seem capable of imagining and even that I doubt they have any capacity to conceptualize. Stay away from some of the doctrines of these heretics.

You don't even need to believe in creationism to see the ridiculousness of evolution. The idea that millions of the animals evolved to have the exact same features. Eyes, hair/scales/feathers, wings, legs, teeth, spine, similar brain receptors and similar cells. Evolution hampers research into genuine biology. That isn't even getting into the probablity of a successful mutation actually occuring.

> The idea that millions of the animals evolved to have the exact same features.
It's called convergent evolution. It's believed to be why so many different animals developed poison, because it's evolutionarily advantageous.

> Eyes, hair/scales/feathers, wings, legs, teeth, spine, similar brain receptors and similar cells.
Most of those come from common ancestors you dimwit. Eyes for example developed hundreds of millions of years ago.

I would just like to add, that I'm probably way more of what some might call a fanatic or fundamentalist than I let on. I've probably gone on tirades before here or KC that you've seen, can't remember, and my underlying ideology is apocalyptic Christian fundamentalism that sees Revelation as being literally and metaphorically true (since it outright says things are parable and metaphor in places) and the genuine truth of our future and think no law is valid except God's law.

So far I've wasted this day too. Decided to change my default browser to Palemoon, since Firefox decided to randomly block all of my extensions, and I'm not going to use the internet without adblock.
Though it was a bit annoying to set everything up, since the dictionaries for the spellchecker are out of date, and I had to get a direct download link to the Firefox servers (because on their site only Firefox users can download add-ons), and then modify that to the different locations the dictionaries I wanted were in. (Not to mention I had to use older ones instead of the newest versions.)
But in the end, I got all the dictionaries I wanted. (Though I can't get rid of this English-US dictionary.)

It's still raining. I felt that feeling of anxiety again.

Yesterday my mother offered me some money if I were to seriously go out and clean up the garden for real. 1.5 Euros an hour is really good. She offered me the same "wage" I get while working my data entry job. Turned her down. I can't accept that. I'd feel guilty. (Though I still feel guilty.)

It's curious that a guttural 'r' like in "krebs" I provided: https://vocaroo.com/i/s0pa658MsNcS is considered a sure sign of a Jewish accent in here. I guess that absolute majority of Jews in Eastern Slavlands are of an Ashkenazi descent.

Virtually all Jews in slavlands were Ashkenazi, and Ashkenazi were among the first groups in Europe to adopt guttural R. In the rest of the continent it's mostly a late 18th/19th century adoption.

How come the smartest, most high IQ men are usually radically left politically? I never understood this, is there something I’m missing?

Pattern recognition = understanding how things work. Your understanding of how things work naturally relates to your ideas on how to solve problems with those things. Lifelong success in pattern recognition where others pathetically fail also leads to hubris, which is why the intelligent so often misjudge things.

>>21910
>I highly doubt that but it would again show a reaction to complex problems or situations in the most straight forward thus least intelligent manner.
Sometimes the straightforward solution is the best one, but that's not the point here. Nationalism is not synonymous with knee-jerk stupidity because muh country. Depending on your specific understand of the world "nationalism" you might not use it to describe what I have in mind. But humans need some concept of membership in a wider community in order to cooperate at a large scale in a prosocial manner, and nationalism at its most basic is setting the nation state as the level of community.

In the recent past, the highest level of community was the faith, and national distinctions were relatively minor. But if the faith starts to become less important in people's lives, where do you construct the tribal boundaries? Existing national boundaries are often the most instinctive and natural way to go.

Until I met the post >>21970, which implies (memeing aside, see >>21904 and >>21905) that pattern recognition is intelligence level measurement, I ignored the thread.

So the question stands:
>How come the smartest, most high IQ men are usually radically left politically?
High intelligence quotient, let's spell this term out fully, is based on the idea that pattern recognition determines intelligence level as a whole. In popular mind, high IQ level is equal to "being the smartest".
But let's think, who are usually among proponents of right ideas? These are people, who gained much money, and they can't let themselves to lose the quality of life, which usually drops for them after left ideas realisation, from high social taxes to revolutions. And most of them are businessmen.
What is to own the business? Work skills aren't enough - you've got to sell yourself every deal. For a successful and rich deal, social skills are important as well. And the intelligence quotient as we know relates to social skills indirectly and not so much, as pattern recognition does.
High quotient isn't enough on itself to determine political views. But high quotient isn't enough to determine the level of social skills as well, which is very important for successful business, which gives a lot of money to its owner.
