Crypto is shitting the bed. I had nickels and dimes in the market but pulled out shortly after the war started and have been watching from the sidelines. After further research into the space, I'm convinced there is no significant future beyond Defi and unregulated speculation on arbitrary assets. Other business and consumer needs can be shoehorned onto a blockchain, but why? To avoid paying for maintenance and labor by rewarding contributors with arbitrary assets which others can speculate on? Unless you accept Decentralization and Trustless as a priori benefits there is little reason to rebuild our current economy on a giant spreadsheet.

TBH Ukrainian is really just a dialect of Russian (or both are dialects of same language together with Belarusian to be precise). Difference is purely lexical, totally same morphology and so on.
Westerner speaking on суржик is a funny display, you should definitely enroll.

Someone said that "a language is a dialect with an army and a navy". This means that Hungarian is dialect (they have army but no navy). Meanwhile American is a language.

Dostoevsky would obviously support this "special operation". He had Stockholm syndrome and glorified suffering and bootlicking. It's justified to cancel him post-mortem.

Tolstoy was hippy. He should be bottled post-mortem for pacifism "discredit of armed forces of RF".

German right-wingers actually already prepare to move to Russia. The country where weakness and homosex are not allowed. While Germans moved to Paraguay because of dictatorial corona politics it is now others that learn Russian in order to move. Some of them need to refresh their language skills taught in he GDR, what irony!

This is made up. Maybe some people really learn Russian and will move to the glorious land of traditions. Oh and some Germans really moved to Paraguay

There was a German family which fled to Siberian village from sexual education lessons. It was widely covered by media:

After two months they returned back to vaterland:

Authorities realized this reputational loss, offered them three floor house in Stavropol (town at south of Russia) for free, met them at airport with a concert. But after living there for a while Germans disappeared once again:

Russian-Germans. Why are they being vatniks in Germany instead of Russia? No one knows. Maybe they are all influencer agents. Or maybe they have been planted here as Russian speakers who need to be protected by mighty Russia.

After all, these poor people are wronged at every turn and are threatened by moral rot, which lurks in every corner, so they are in urgent need of protection.

For example, in 2016, poor 13 year old Lisa was kidnapped and raped by at least 4, no 6, no 7 black-assed Arab refugees, then thrown out onto the streets half dead, can you imagine? Heinrich Grout, head of the association of Russian-Germans, accused the Berlin police of inaction, the girl's aunt valiantly talked to Russian media, who came out in full support of the girl and reported about the total degeneracy of Germany, where girls can not walk the streets safely. The girl was even threatened and pressured by the leftist forces of Berlin police. Russian-Germans and Neo-Nazis stood as one in the protests against the criminal inaction of German authorities, who would do nothing to help the girl, only because she was white and her rapists were Arab.

Then, like in a joke about radio Erewan, it turned out that 13 year old Lisa had not been raped, but gave her chaste treasure willingly, not to Arabs, but to two men in their early twenties, who had even filmed the endeavor and shared the video with their friends.

Such cases.

I know why my back hurts. Like three days ago I tried to touch my toes because why not, and I couldn't, so I had this genius idea that if I do it fast enough I'll touch it. So I did it fast and touched it for a second, only to strain something lmao.
I'm literally so retarded I'm not fit for living.

I decided that I'm man enough that I can spend my own money so I bought gyros because mum didn't leave any money, and you know what, it was good and I'm happy I bought it.

Yet the Hungarian armed forces lacks a naval branch. What language is your dialect derived from?
On boomers, our history is separate. Only bonafide comintern agents on their deathbed would ever consider updating their Russian vocabulary. My most hopeful scenario is that the people who enrolled were spurred on by the war to know more. Within the realm of possibility, perhaps these handful of people taking up Russian are just enamored by Russian TikTok memes or something of the sort. As I can personally attest some 'old' Russian music is passed around by a certain demographic.
In this case, I will bear this: https://youtu.be/zf99kdFw9b8 for a greater goal.
However, in the present geopolitical context, with new Ukrainian classes and Russian being relegated to a language that is not even taught in person by the faculty of letters (Russian now joins the ranks of Finnish or Tagalog). I'd be surprised if the place I'm applying to managed to scrape together more than 12 morons. Of us 12, those who remain until the end wont just be 'weird', but I'm certain the last 3 will all have very alternative views.

Speaking of language courses, during one of the translation seminar we had this chick studying Slavistik and she was like "I'm learning both Russian and Ukrainian" and the lecturer went "The current conflict must be very hard on you."

I'm gonna be autistic for a second but Finnish depends on context. Here it has a lot of people studying it. (Well, because we force everyone learning Hungarian as a major or studying to become a teacher of grammar and literature to learn it for like a semester.)

I don't think anybody likes Russia here either tho. Like the website oroszhirek.hu (russiannews.hu) is apparently plenty popular and in like the top 10 right wing sites now that they block RT on certain ISPs, but otherwise only like 16% hold a positive view of the Russians. (Not that anyone likes the Ukrainians any better.)
(Most people despite the negative sentiment want to keep up economic and diplomatic ties though, most probably a result of Orbán's media machine getting through their skulls and drilling in how important Russian oil is.)

Honestly though. Eventually in-person classes will restart. I doubt anybody will care by next year.

Budapestoids are retarded libcunts who formed an emotional attachment to the European Union as a way to "fight" against Orbán's numerous "anti-Brussels" campaigns. They don't like Europe, they're just doing the opposite of what Orbán is doing.
(Most of them think the EU is ought to appoint them as Gauleiters.)

As for Finnish, well, absolutely fucking nothing.
Honestly, I understand more of Turkish or Mongolian than Finnish. (Or Estonian for that matter. Don't really know about Mari or Khanty or Manshy.)
At least based on the language textbooks and texts I shuffled through a few times out of curiosity.

I wanted to put something ebin in there, but pussied out. Imagine going to donate sperm, turning on the TV, and it's all videos of of weird japanese shit and doll fucking and the like.

But I also learned that along with stuff like corporate language, corporate culture, corporate style, etc., there is also corporate porn. I had to pick videos that were as inoffensive as possible, as far as porn goes.

It was produced illegally, but the sperm itself is completely valid, no? And there is no way to tell from the sperm sample if it was a result of breaching the ejaculation law, so it still can be used, I think. Like if you go to the bar and order yourself a drink for the money you stole, the bar owner cannot be held responsible for selling you a drink. So, you as a laboratory can work with the sample provided all the same, and leave determining if the sperm was produced illegally to the masturbation police.

I replayed the past three days, rapid scenes forming a psychedelic montage in my fever-swollen mind. Faces shifted, a young Home Depot clerk's skull molting acne scarred flesh to reveal first the wrinkled visage of my elderly neighbor Kate, next a familiar forehead distended by bulging veins.

Allen's life revolved around the gym, and he had just achieved another personal best. He was sweating. We all were, of course, but the sheer volume of droplets stubbornly clinging to his skin gave me pause. He sat up, grinned, and a hint of mint mouthwash hung in the air between us. Did the pleasant scent conceal a toxic viral load?

The form held for an instant before his eyes fell and hairline receded. The gym was gone, and my coworker Cory was opining on the governor's ineptitude as I reached for non-dairy creamer. In the half-empty breakroom I nodded, as non-committal as I could manage, taking in his diatribe while I watched the powder dissolve and my coffee whiten. His fingers held the pot moments before. The handle was slightly sticky, and I noted the discarded cellophane of a Honey Bun. Had the sugar glaze fed more than Cory? A snack for multiplying bacteria, perhaps?

I had speculation and conjecture, but this investigation required more. To find the culprit I would have to, against all odds, get up off the floor...

You might like Stephen King's 22/11/63. The story is set in late 50s/early 60s America, where everything is as American as apple pie.

Stephen King does America well, anyway, he makes it feel very ... American, and this is his best book so far, very close to serious literature. Like "Tränen eines Clowns" for Simmel, semi-serious work by pulp author.

I would make a big circle around King

>The novel required considerable research to accurately portray the late 1950s and early 1960s. King commented on the amount of research it required, saying "I've never tried to write anything like this before. It was really strange at first, like breaking in a new pair of shoes."

Sounds promising though.
Some novels or pulps from the actual era might be good as well in that regard. I came to love this America because of 1960s, 70s and 1980s realist novels from the US.

I went to that workshop meeting. Basically we just discussed what needs to be done (organising a conference next year, turning in our papers for the semester, submitting a performance report, plus what will be the topic of next semester's seminar.)
Nothing very serious. We also talked about exams and such.
They're establishing another workshop within the university, which will be more tailored towards helping people train in academic writing and presenting.
They asked me to hold an opening presentation on the first meeting. Basically just doing my conference work on Legalism I did a few months ago.
We had two lecturers present. Basically they're the ones who officially supervise the workshop. They said "We want you to know that this has no consequences, this is just a ceremony."
Obviously I accepted because it's an honour to do this. And it won't take much effort either.

Anyway, they're both Japanologists. So when we discussed oriental topics there came the trouble that we knew the Chinese reading or the Korean, but not the Japanese and vice versa, so slowly we just started saying radical combinations. Pretty funny.
Heard a couple of stories about ye olden days, like how the guy's first Japanese dictionary was some East German edition that had a weird radical register. Or how he had a prof from Hokkaido who said "I'm going to teach like as if I were at a Japanese university", which meant he failed everyone, except the guy telling the story. But the fun part was, he'd hold the lectures on the Kojiki or whatever, and afterwards he'd put down a bottle of wine on the table and say "With this concluded, we're gonna taste this wine!" and they'd drink a bottle of wine after the lecture. "Can't do that any more. With the number of people coming in you hardly remember faces these days."

Funny bit was when I went for the second beer (quite tipsy already), came back to one of the Sinology students discussing something with the Japanology prof and he turns to me and asks "Ernst, do you happen to know the name of that Chinese dictionary from the 18th century?" and I effortlessly say Kangxi and I could see that kind of admiration coupled with distaste on the face of my classmate that I know stuff like this, even if it's very basic. The thing was again that we didn't know how to pronounce it in Japanese.

The lecturer who will hold next semester's workshop seminar also came by. We will be talking about lexicography.
She's that cute assyrologist PhD.

Anyway, I had one 0.5L beer and a 0.3 beer. And I got totally shitfaced. Like the others drank a litre and I was like a fucking salaryman by the time I finished half of the first.
Had two cheeseburgers on the way home to sober up. I still couldn't handle it and ended up throwing up in a bush. I kinda regretted it, because the cheeseburgers were expensive. Then I threw up at home too. And then again another half an hour later. I threw up bile like 3-4 times. My system really wasn't happy with the beers.
So after like two hours of suffering I finally managed to calm my stomach enough that I could push down some ice cream to recuperate.
Had the worst nightmares and cold sweats in the process.
The conclusion is: I should never ever drink beer again.

I've decided to order a pizza and just rest a bit. Yesterday was hard on me.
Still, probably gonna pick up a book later. Both in the sense that I ordered one (a German Grammar) plus that I'm gonna finish re-reading Thunderstorm. Didn't quite have the time for it yesterday.

Do any Ernsts here dabble in entomology? It feels like an ernsthaft hobby.

My problem is that I have some shitty old ikea shelf, with holes drilled for placing the boards at different heights.
Now recently I had noticed some sawdust in a corner. I vacuumed it away, but today I noticed it again, at the same spot.
Then I remembered that I also vacuumed some kind of flies/bugs, so I looked again and discovered that some of those holes were filled with something that looked like fresh silicone.
I took a toothpick and poked around in one of those holes. That silicone looking mass was sticky and I also had some kind of black-red mass sticking on the toothpick with some tiny legs poking out. I tried other holes with the same result. Empty looking holes didn't yield any bug pulp.
So much for the background.

What I am wondering, and what I couldn't find out is what kind of bug it could be, and if they're some kind of woodworm pest (it's not woodworms, that much I can say) or bugs that just found holes to lay their eggs in or something and most of all I wonder how and especially when they could have gotten in there.

Long train journey due to delays. It included a boomer couple that couldn't stop ranting about the 9€ ticket and how shit the DB is (jokes on them it was a private rail service they used and their fucking train left 10mins late)

A woman at that station was talking to herself, I first thought she had headphones and was on a telephone call. She lay on seats on the next train, sleep-awake, but mumbling every then and now. She even was on the next train as well. She looked confused. Indeed some psychic problems. Struck me as godforsaken lonely and I felt sad for her. Crossing Germany by train with a 9€ ticket, I wonder if she even had an end destination in mind. By accident, I found out she probably speaks french. Speaking of that I also witnessed blunt racism, though it was not her that was addressed.

Driving is dangerous, lots of unsettling situations. You might see an accident, which might not be pretty. Many people on the Autobahn travel to visit sick relatives or to or from a funeral. Using the Autobahn used to be a somewhat rate experience for most people, and it can be a stressful experience in itself.

All of this might be unsettling enough, and a place to pray might help with that.

Fucking idiot, probably proud of not knowing how to operate a car. Granted, you're not shifting as much on the Autobahn as in the city, for example, but with all the construction sites and people going <110 on the left lane and all that you're shifting often enough.

Serious answer: Chapels along roads exist everywhere, like road crosses and such, so it's just consequential to also have them on the longest roads. And for example bikers also often have road masses.

imo sex is fundamentally a disgusting activity, because it reminds us of our worldliness.
the genre of body horror is based on this particular existential anxiety: that we are all nothing but meat. it's no wonder so much body horror employs sexual imagery.

john carpenter's the thing could easily be read as an allegory for sex. it's actually an allegory for something more abstract, in particular the mind body duality itself, but sex has a strong overlap with it anyway, itself being an area of the human condition that straddles the line between the animalistic/bodily and the human/psychological.
It also has to be mentioned that lust is such a powerful signal that it can turn off some parts of higher cognitive function, flooding the mind with its presence. it is not dissimilar in that regard to pain. whenever we are in lust or in pain, we act on behalf of our flesh, turning momentarily into stimulus response organisms.

the tripple penetration gangbang reflects the true nature of sexuality, and all that romantic crap people wrap sexuality around is nothing but cope designed to disguise the ugly truth.

>Chunyu Fen (淳于棼) is a previously successful and rich officer in the Huainan army who has offended his general and been dismissed. Disgruntled, he drank himself to sleep under a huge ash tree and was carried back to his house by two friends. While he is resting in a half-asleep state, a pair of messengers enter with an invitation from the king of "Hui An".[4]

>Chunyu goes with the messengers in their carriage, which heads towards the ash tree and into the hollow under it. The scenery in the hollow, while consisting of mountains and rivers, looks different from the world above. After about ten miles, they enter a large city though a grand gate over which is written "The Great Kingdom of Ashendon". Chunyu sees an old drinking friend of his at the side of the road, amongst other officers.

>Chunyu is informed by the prime minister that the king has invited him here with the hope of him marrying one of his daughters, creating an alliance. When brought before the king, he is told that this is at his father's wish. Chunyu is bemused by this, but since his father was a missing frontier general, it is possible. At a feast that evening, Chunyu is entertained by nymphs and fairies, and meets his groomsmen and Tian Zihua, another old friend who tells him yet another friend, Zhou, is also in the city. Forthwith, he is married to the king's second daughter, a girl of about fifteen.

>Chunyu and his wife come to love each other greatly, and his power grows. One day, Chunyu asks the king how his father could have made the request to the king for him to be married, as Chunyu's father has been missing for nearly twenty years. The king replies that he is in frequent contact with Chunyu's father who is still alive, and serving at the northern frontier. The king instructs Chunyu to write to his father, but not to go to see him. A reply is soon received, telling Chunyu of his father's regret that they can't meet then, but that they will meet in three years' time.

>At his wife's request, Chunyu takes an official post at Nanke (a prosperous and fertile southern tributary state) where he serves as governor, with Tian Zihua as finance minister and Zhou as chief councillor. After a farewell feast and a several-day-long journey, they arrive at Nanke. Chunyu is a wise governor and the state flourishes. He has five sons, who all take official posts, and two daughters who are married into the royal family.

>One day, the neighboring kingdom of "Sandalvine" invades, and Chunyu is commanded to raise an army and fight them, which he does, putting Zhou in charge of 30,000 men. However, Zhou proves a poor commander, and the battle is a rout. Zhou flees back to Nanke under cover of darkness, where Chunyu arrests him, but the king pardons both men for the defeat. The next month Zhou dies from a boil on his neck and Chunyu's wife dies shortly after that. Chunyu's request to travel back to the capital with the hearse is granted, and he is greeted there by the mourning king and queen. After his return Chunyu behaves oddly and gathers so many followers that the king begins to suspect him. Meanwhile, the king is informed of a mysterious portent that the kingdom will be destroyed by an event caused by a foreigner close to the royal family. Accordingly, the king forces Chunyu to retire.

>Sensing Chunyu's feelings of despondence, the king informs him that is regretful that his wife has died so young, but now Chunyu must return home. Chunyu argues, saying that this is his home, but the king disagrees, saying that Chunyu came from the world of men. So, Chunyu returns the way he came, but this time in an old and shabby carriage. Entering his home again, he is gripped by sadness, and then is shocked to see himself lying in his bed. Suddenly he awakens, and finds that the day he fell asleep has not yet ended, despite having lived a generation in Ashendon.

>He goes out with his friends and uncovers a great ants' nest under the ash tree, with two huge ants attended to by the others, with another nest nearby for Nanke, and a burial mound for his wife. A connected nest is found under a sandalwood tree overgrown with vines, showing where the invaders had come from. Chunyu forbids his friends to damage the nests and covers them again with the vines, but that night a severe storm destroys Ashendon, fulfilling the prophecy of destruction. Chunyu then remembers his friends Zhou and Tian Zihua, and sends a servant for news, to find that they are both recently dead. Realising the emptiness of the material world, Chunyu becomes a Taoist, eschews money and women, and dies three years later.

There's a subtle but very important difference between this legend's use of the anthill as the "illusory world", and the modern iterations where a virtual world is used instead, like in Star Trek's The Inner Light, or The Matrix.
It is so important, in fact, that the "virtual reality" stories completely destroy the point of the original story.
The problem lies in that the modern story, the virtual world is juxtaposed against the "real" world.
In the legend, on the other hand, the anthill is as real as anything else, it is part of the rest of the world. For all we know, the events in the dream might as well have happened, just with ants rather than humans.
The point is, it's not about the dream being illusory, it's about the life "story" and experiences of the protagonist's dream being illusory. There is no "inside" vs "outside" here, unlike the virtual reality stories. Both the anthill and the human world are on the same "plane", and the comparison is made between the story of the protagonist's life in the ant world, and the story of the protagonist's life in the human world, the argument being that they also exist on the same "plane", and are thus equivalent in being illusory.

Romance is sexuality wrapped in ideology.
Just like any other [cultural phenomenon] is [physical phenomenon] wrapped in ideology.

I guess I don't have anything against the worldly in particular, but when you see it that way, it's hard to justify why you would value human sexual acts over cat sexual acts or bees pollinating flowers and so on.
I used to be an idealist for a while, but nowadays, I think ideas and concepts are as much "mere appearances" as sensory experiences are.
I've resigned myself to trying to simply detachedly observe things in a mildly amused manner. It's working out so far.

Next time you talk to someone, you should take notice of both how the person's lips are smacking against each other producing fleshy wet sounds that you interpret as words, and also how the "concept" of the person you are talking to is merely a mental model "avatar" in your own mind.

You can be long term attached to having triple penetration gangbangs, I fail to see how long-termness and romance are related.
>I don't think that these things are fundamentally different
They're different in how we perceive them, and how we relate to those acts, despite not being fundamentally different. That's the point, the fact that one specie's sexuality affects you in a sexual manner, while another's doesn't, it highlights that the internal experience of sexuality is a mere arbitrary stimulus, same as pain or hunger.

I think your premise is faulty because you assume everyone is not aware of being a meatbag, nor even ready to accept that.
You are also assuming the very process of creating new life (in principle) isn't the exact antithesis to "worldliness", in that by procreating a part of you will certainly live on.

re:body horror - I also disagree here. Body horror employs sexual imagery because a) bodies are involved and b) sex is usually something pleasant, but can easily become unpleasant when one of the involved parties is not willing. And since horror is, among other things, about perverting, this plays right into that direction. Furthermore, body horror also deals with the fear of abnormality. Normal people, even the most open-minded ones, will have a certain adverse reaction to mutilations or deformation and THAT does indeed play into the worldliness of your body, in that by decreasing the structural integrity of one's body, one's life force is also decreased. And that's already before things like nazi doctors and Unit 731 (although I wouldn't put medical horror with body horror; they have overlaps, but are not subsets of each other).

I think it's a pretty accurate assumption.

I think the duality of life and death is a spook. Life seems to be quite adjacent to death in all things.
>in that by procreating a part of you will certainly live on.
Your genes will live on. "Your" genes. Unless you somehow impart a sense of identity to a collection of molecular on/off switches, saying that genes are a part of "you" doesn't make much sense. I'd be more accurate to say that you are a vehicle for carrying genes.
Also, almost all of your genetic information will be completely diluted in a finite number of generations until there's basically no information about "you" preserved in your grand grand grand ... children, so that's not even true.

You are operating on a lower abstraction level here.
The question is, WHY does a deformed face, or sexual imagery presented in grotesque manner, disgusts and horrifies us?
We shouldn't just settle on the fact that it does as the ground truth, but examine the underlying reason for such a reaction in the first place. My point is that presenting us with the materiality of our existence is that reason.
In both cases, body horror strips away the parts of the human body that our minds process and "filter" into recognizing as "humans" (as in the idea of a human), leaving only the sensory perception of a body. Deform a face, and your brain stops interpreting it as a "face", and switches into interpreting it as a mass of flesh. Sexual imagery that is devoid of arousal, is just flesh.
But both a normal face that we see as a face, and a deformed face that we see as a mass of flesh, are both masses of flesh. So, the "true" perception must then be that of the mass of flesh, and the perception of a face is just an evolutionarily beneficial illusion.
This pattern of taking something that our brains filter into pleasant experiences, and switching them off, can be seen all over horror by the way. Cuteness also works. Lots of horror imagery revolves around ordinarily cute things, deformed or altered in certain ways. It's because much like arousal or face recognition, cuteness is a hard-wired "filtering" layer.

So, my ultimate point is that such horror works because it points out that our perception of something looking "human" or "nice" or "sexy" is an arbitrary biological phenomenon, and without such a filter, humans just look like flesh. Hence, reminding us of our worldliness.

It has to be pointed out that apples being tasty is not a property of apples, but a property of our minds to find apples tasty. Now imagine eating an apple that tastes like nothing. Then it becomes apparent that eating apples is merely a biological function, and the "taste" didn't exist. An apple is just a sack of water and carbon. Just like human bodies.
That, or you're eating Red Delicious.

Latex does have advantages.
You can put it into any version control and it works.
You can split it up into multiple files without problems.
Whatever bullshit you do with your formatting, you are much less likely to lose any text.
Fully justified text still looks much better set with latex than with word.
The math mode produces formulae that are much superior to anything Microsoft office has to offer.
If you delete the image, put in a new image above the caption, and go on editing, word will lose the reference. If you print to pdf, it will then sometimes dissappear the image. Why? I don't know. Word-guru at work explained to me that there are reasons for that. I just could not make any sense of if.
In any case, such bullshit does not happen with latex, for obvious reasons.
Instead, you get "bullshit.sty not found, make a guess for what package you need to install" and "hahah, you need xetex for that" and "haha, you need texlive for that" and "haha you need luatex for that".

Grievanes I have with Microsoft Office:
Their mail-client is shit, too. It complains being out of memory on 2/3 program launches, even though there is enough free memory available. I do not know what DLL they use to malloc, but it has to be pretty exotic. I tried the repair-function, it crashed, and the entire office suite was gone. Then, I had to re-install (re-enter their damn key, if you even know it), just to end up where I started, with a mail-client that can allocate sufficient memory to open a plain-text-email on every third launch, on a system with 16GB of RAM. Only thing I achieved is that all my "recent files" all over office are now from 2019.

I have often been unable to do what I wanted to do with LibreOffice, especially when dealing with CJK, which M$O seems to support better. In some cases LO is to blame, in others I don't know if the problem is with LO or with the fonts I use. I can't imagine going back to M$O over this, but I do wonder what e.g. Japanese free software aficionados who are also serious about typesetting use. I wish there were something combining the features I like from Babelsoft, LO, Abiword, the *tex family, plain text editors and M$O, but leaving out their respective annoying parts.

How about Germany starting a "mysterious Portugal" subthread? I use Portuguese black swallow olive oil and am very pleased with it. So when Lidl recently sold Portuguese pears bearing this silly certified origin label, I bought some, but so far, they totally behave like regular pears? I think I've been rused by the Portuguese.
Slightly related: Years ago, I checked several brands of "kvass" soda beverage in plastic bottles in a (different) local supermarket, and all contained flavour. Felt like wanting beer but only finding beer-flavoured water. Perhaps actual kvass can't be bottled because it could explode and make a mess? I won't make kvass or water kefir at home any time soon.

But pears are objectively superior to apples. Their lower acidity means they are less aggressive against tooth enamel and more suitable to combine with cocoa or chocolate. Also, there are firm and soft varieties of pear, whereas there is no such thing as a soft, juicy, sweet apple, except a baked apple perhaps.

I just volunteered for doing benevolent work as a staff in a manga/anime convention. A friend talked me into it for the first time a before Covid and I liked it a lot.

I don’t watch anime, I swear. There’s something about doing all of this work and being kind of exterior to the phenomenon that’s strangely exiting. I also liked the team feeling. Everyone was friendly and talkative to each other, which was in great contrast to how most of the staff probably usually lived its social life.

For the anecdote, after I finished volunteering I went back home using public transports with three girls from the staff. One was very shy and nearly said nothing, one was hot and one was maybe the ugliest woman I had ever seen.
We were talking about the convention and the ugly one explained to us she was upset because she sent very clear signals of interest to a staff member who didn’t seem to notice. She then told us that she recently convinced her boyfriend to open their relationship but she didn’t manage to sleep with any guys while the bf was really successful. The shy girl completely stopped talking at this point. The hot girl answered that it was her bf who opened the relationship but the irony made it that she was also the only one who fucked.
I was at a loss, I thought that it was commonly agreed upon that relationships were exclusive and never thought people could talk about their sexuality this openly with stranger. It made me get things into perspective. I may have been the asocial all along.

I cycled 25km to the neighboring town. Originally, I planned on eating some ice cream or at least refilling my water bottle in the grave yard. But I did not make it past the town sign. My ex-gf lives there and it gave me more suicidal thoughts than I expected it would, which is pathetic. Not that german ball still hung up about his ex, but the other german ball hung up about his ex. His was mean, mine was not. I then turned back and cycled home.

I took the route that is most forested, it is nice and cool in the forest. But on my way home, I passed through a recent development of single family homes, and I swear on a fat cook's armpit-sweat, it was 5 kelvin hotter in that development. I am certain that is the result of all the asphalt and stone, fashionably black roofs and total lack of vegetation. Why do people love black roofs so much? Every kid in almost any country would draw a house with a red roof, but when those kids grow up, they decide that roofs should be black. Why?

It's kind of obvious that there can't be 100 year old trees on what used to be farmland, but the yards are all mostly paved and cobbled. I guess people do not want to maintain a garden, and they need parking space. Maybe they need parking space so they can show off their house to all of their friends simultaneously, and all of those friends need parking space. Other than that, I don't see the point of owning a house when half your yard is a 5m x 4m driveway. Most depressing observation: the people who have the lots next to a foot-path walled themselves in with 3m high pic related walls. Around a 2m wide path. It takes multiple turns between such walls, and it feels like a Minoan labyrinth.

80s/90s developments don't have those walls, nor do they have giant cobbled parking lots. Society is getting more car-dependent, people wall themselves in because there is no more sense of community and no more generalized trust, and everything is going to the dogs. Instead of adapting to climate change, people chose to ignore it and built the most extreme heat islands they can. Maybe they hope their gravel-walls can keep out the heat?

On my way up the stairwell to my flat, I met a neighbor who is a few years younger than me and pretty, and she was wearing shorts. I could see a tattoo on her leg. She always has sex loudly with her Greek BF who drives a Mercedes CLA AMG. I am convinced the tattoo extents to her genitals. I don't want a gf with tattoos on her genitals. Or any tattoos, really.

Could I get gf if I had an expensive car? I don't know. Am I too poor for that? I think so, but statistically, I am not poor at all. Savings rate is about 2000€/month, that could be enough to afford a car and look richer over all. I still feel poor. I do not get status symbols, but they seem to be very important to everyone else. Would I need a better job at a more prestigious company? Would it make me good enough? On the other hand, would my ex have left me if there was any reasonable chance of me getting hired at Bosch-Daimler-SAP-Würth?

I get older, but not smarter, and frankly, I don't see much of a point in anything at the moment. So, hopelessness on all fronts, and not without reason.

I especially hate how now I'm out of reading, sort of, so now it's down to writing, and because I need to look at pdfs constantly, I have to use the big screen so I can't write outside, so in essence I'm squandering the good weather for this.

Still, I'm like 6 pages in if you don't count the sources section and the cover I made for it for some reason. They're asking for 8-10. Or at least I remember it was supposed to be 8-10. Whatever. For some she said 5-6, I remember 8-10 and yet another workshop member remembers 10-15. I'm sure it will all be fine.

It's always the female subjects that are the most interesting. It's a delicate process to get to study them closely, so I understand completely.

>But I still worry photographing them would elicit suspicion from them.
Being a sneaky fuck Finn I have a tip on capturing footage without arousing too much suspicion.

You can take out your phone and announce that you're taking a video for your gf/wife. Then start recording with the selfie camera and say a few words to your partner(imaginary is fine). Maybe even ask the subjects to say hi to "Maria"(or any female name of your choosing) to really sell the story. One drawback with this method is that if you're attempting to study a female subject, it just became a lot more difficult. And of course having yourself in the frame is unfortunate if you're attempting to capture the subjects and share the footage. Though if no one is paying much attention to you just stay out of the frame entirely.

Works pretty well in most cases where it would otherwise feel too awkward to start recording. Though that felt awkwardness is likely very subjective, and might not even be relevant to the reader.

They were said to be less effective in detecting Omicron vs Delta, so it's possible- especially if I'm an early adopter and now play host to the latest wave. Either way, my understanding is that the test skews toward negative results. Ctrl+F 'false negative' on that instructions pic. Not only does it miss some Covid infections, user error can invalidate the entire process. It's better than nothing, though, and now if anyone asks I can tell them- to the best of my knowledge- it's not the plague.

Funny thing is:
Kids are desperate because their parents can't feed them or afford basic hygiene. Partially, because they feed those children on "snacks" instead of potatoes and porridge like the Britons would have done in decades past, but let's not blame them for their idiocy for the moment.

>We need an NHS trained counsellor in every school … government plans [for training hundreds of mental health workers to work in and near schools] will only reach a quarter of schools in three years.

Well, it's normal to say, whether or not it is moral to say is a completely different question altogether, but I don't think a bureaucrat involves themselves much with the morality of their actions, they tend to focus more on the morality of their words, or rather, making sure the immorality of their words come forward in a moral way.
They didn't ask for money that could be spent on starving children, they requested funds that could be used to bolster state services to help the children of Great Britain cope with the pressure their material conditions put on them through mental healthcare.

Many roads lead to a goal and you can travel the route that works best for you, the fastest road or the most precise and worked-through road, sometimes there are combinations or overlaps possible. Find out what works best. That means maybe writing shit down beforehand and then piecing it together and gluing your note chunks doesn't work for you, but I don't think that beyond student level people work and write by just looking at pdfs. Maybe I'm mistaken. I did write some (shorter) papers that way, but no it takes too much time and is a lot of window juggling. Having a lot of notes that are just selected and adjusted makes you write incredibly fast but of course, you put in quite some time before writing a coherent text.

The factual is normative, so it is moral. The only people who would think it is not have slave morality, like me. I failed to consider this, like the worthless low-value un-noble piece of shit I am. Noble people know what they want, and what benefits their goals is moral. They use circumstances to their own advantages and to further their own goals. Low-value pieces of shit think about the "common good", because their weakness and bad genetics do not allow them to act in their own best interest. Instead, they construct the morals of slaves that are targeted at keeping those of high value down. They try to impress their slave morality onto nobler humans to keep those from furthering their own goals. This is why the ruling caste has to invent lies about "welfare". To keep the worthless pathetic mob pacified. They pretend to respect slave morality, while they are grabbing as much power, gain and the best sexual partners for themselves, like their nature dictates.

Slave-morality is weak and degenerate, and idiots like me who believe in it are worthless.

Hungary encounters the proletariat and their manual bare-handed work whereas reading and writing lead to nothing! The pride of every working human is that they do something, especially when working in the factory or laying the foundations of our comfortable existence. They move and wield matter, mental processing is invisible (and yet the managerial/communication caste is responsible for a certain standard of living as well since they sit at interfaces and regulate shit between things that are done)

Back when I was young we had the Arbeitsdienst where there was no distinction allowed, a great melting pot of the classes where the future Reichsschriftkammerleiter and the typical Werkzeugbenutzerarbeiter were digging trenches and building Autobahn's together, every hand and matter was moved for the Reich!

I'd imagine that depends on many factors in the case that "a bag" is not a standard I'm unaware of. But I'd guess something between 30 and 50 kilos. Right now I can't recall buying other whole grains but rice. Those are packaged in 1 or 2 kilo boxes or bags in normal grocery stores at least. Probably the same for buckwheat.

Population of Finland was less than three million in the start of 20th century and many people in rural areas were still living in "smoke cabins" with no windows or chimneys. A building with one room inhabited parents and their ten kids.

>For example, the fact that any convergent sequence in a metric space is a Cauchy sequence is a direct consequence of the triangle inequality
Is Q| a metric space? Because to me, it looks like it is. Yet, Q| is not complete.
But "Cauchy sequences converge" is equivalent to the completeness axiom.

Sorry for bothering people with calculus 101, but this confuses me a little atm.
