That's a terrible picture that you describe. Yes, perhaps Europeans should stop giving to Ukraine and let Putin occupy it. This outcome will be much better.

To be honest, I don't understand communists' insatiable thirst to suck asses of foreign dictators. Is it just "being against the current thing at all costs"?

Makes me think how the nation is taken as given, but it is that to be proven actually exists (naturally and rightly so). Ukrainians make up Ukraine an vice versa, problems?? there is no good reason to try to understand how this concept came into being and how it works just go on unexamined :DDD
Nationality is just one distinction to draw a difference and it is blown up indefinitely for war reasons here, nothing new under the sun.

If they didn't, they might get arrested or worse by Ukrainian authorities, so that in itself is not an indicator of opposition to the Moscow regime nor of support for the Kyiv regime. But yes I assume morale is much, much better in the Ukrainian military than in the Russian one.

Of course, the take was reductionist. Pre-war Ukraine had higher(still pretty low) polling for willingness to fight for their country than Russia did. Ukrainian sentiments in personal talks, online talks, news and Ukrainian content creators propaganda all seem to point that that sentiment has greatly increased. Have I, or has the Ukrainian people been PSYOP'd into thinking this? It's possible. But the counter-narrative provided by Russian state media or aligned people mostly doesn't seem to provide convincing alternatives.

As to the repercussions for refusing to fight, I'm sure they exist. Though if there was wide spread dissent, I would assume Ukraine would fracture by infighting or that military-aged men would find a way to become refugees en-masse as seen with other conflicts. Of course there are always nuances that might significantly impact this.

I don't see how an increase in patrioticism during wartime is something surprising, especially if fighting for a "good" cause.
Hell, if you manage to sell a war as "righteous" to Germans, they will support any and every measure, see: almost unanimous support for the war among Greens and like 3/4 of SPD voters.

Eh, the main point I was trying to get at was that even then, the same concept can mean or represent different things to different populations of people, depending on their own ideology, but it was lost in the shit flinging.
For example, I would assert that there is a surplus ideological component in the western conception of Ukraine, in that along with all other things Ukraine represents, it now also acts as a vessel of emotional investment in domestic ideological issues. I don't see anything offensive about this assertion.
What might possibly be offensive is if I asserted that the unspoken perverse enjoyment is that of being allowed to feel good about western military intervention and geopolitical involvement for once, because "it's one of the good ones this time". Which I also think is the case.

Examining ideology makes people defensive for some reason I guess.

Humans are generically "racist" in that sense. The closer some people seem (racially, culturally, linguistically...), the more empathy we experience. That's, among other, is the reason why the Western audience remains mostly oblivious to the endless bloody conflicts in Africa. In the meantime, the demographic losses in the Second Congolese War alone are almost comparable to WW2 - but that's generally uninteresting to the average European reader, isn't it?..

This is why I don't support ukraine. They're white + they flirt with neo-nazi militias who consider me their existential enemy.

Meanwhile, russia is a multiciltural paradise, where all races are welcome. As long as you kneel to putin of course.

Slept for 4 hours last night. Before bedtime I had some grape tomatoes dipped in sour cream with a beer. It was really good.

Today on my lunch break I ate some flaxseed bread and took a short nap. Had a yucky energy drink and brewed green tea afterwards. Later in the afternoon I had an arugula salad c:

After workies I did some errands and then cooked some awesome seafood :O
Yay!
I fried a few whole trout! The skin is so crispy and yummy :3
And then in the same pan I fried a ton of scallops in olive oil.
I wish I had a cat I could feed these fried fishheads to lol.
What about you Anon? What do you want on your plate? I want you to try everything.
Here, it needs a little salt. I have soy sauce or lemon juice if you want it ;3

OMG. THESE SCALLOPS ARE AMAZINGGG.
They are so creamy and tasty – I cooked them perfect! Holy flip, these are actually the best scallops I've had in years. You gotta try'em Anon!

I opened a 1.5L bottle of white wine to go with this dindin. I friggin LOVE white wine and seafood together.

Some hot oil splashed on my forearm and I washed it off quickly but it looks like I'm gonna have a mild burn. Oh well. Hopefully it isn't too bad. It just stings a little rn :/

Phew, that was a really nice dindin. I'm gonna be eating leftover seafood all week.

I took a 200mg caffeine pill – I want to party tonight! More yummy wine! C'mon Anon I want to dance :3

My surname comes from an Orthodox Christian first name (in its Church Slavonic form, of course), though it wasn't frequent even back when names were chosen according to the church calendar, and now is totally non-existent (if we exclude monastic names). As a result, the surname is pretty rare itself (roughly 1:15000 among ethnic Russians). Causes some minor problems, because I often have to pronounce it syllable-by-syllable or some illiterate bastard will spell it incorrectly.

I learned some good info about the history of the department today.
But I still feel depressed. Lecturer offhandedly told me to work on my pronounciation. Plus I don’t feel like I’m making progress with anything.
I’m in another one of those slump-periods. I need a victory.

Read Byung-chul Han’s Transparenzgesellschaft and while I was engaged while reading it, ultimately I feel profoundly unmoved by it.
Like usually course readings at least are somewhat inspiring if not outright influential on me but this thing was just kinda meh.
Little new info. Didn’t give me a sense of enlightenment. It was surprisingly clear with its language though.

I find it hard to write my posts. But I’m still gonna do it.
I just gotta get back into a good rhythm.

My cold’s almost completely healed now. I still have short coughing fits from time to time and people say that they can hear more rasp in my voice but at least I no longer feel cold all the time when not wrapped in a blanket and a bathrobe.

Slept for 2 hours last night. I woke up in the night with tummy pain, and I felt awful in the morning. Yeah, I know I'm really dumb :/
I nearly finished that 1.5L bottle of wine because I am an idiot. I'm remembering now why I used to avoid buying these large wine bottles – it takes too much self-control to not finish it! At least with a regular bottle I can thoughtlessly finish it and still be fine in the morning.

I ate some flaxseed bread for lunch and took some aspirin. I took a short nap and had a scary dream where I was being attacked by a bear :(
I drank a yucky energy drink when I woke up. Brewed green tea.

In the late afternoon I had an arugula salad with some really hot chili peppers added. Those peppers were so hot my eyes were watering – phew! xP

Today was another busy stressful day at work. Ugh. I ended up working late into the evening :/

After workies, I finished the white wine bottle with some of the yummy fried trout :3
That crispy skin is sooo good!
I let some of the trout marinate overnight in the fried scallop juice from yesterday – it's flipping orgasmic.
Then I took a 200mg caffeine pill and opened a bottle of sherry <3
Yay! Party time! xP
I'm gonna take some cannabis extract in a bit and then get nakey and hop in the shower :3

Last night, mom told me that she wanted to head out today and run an errand, so I went ahead and took some sleeping pills at 5am, woke up bright and early at 1:30 pm and was ready to head out by 3pm but she didn't wake up until 6pm.
I don't smonk dudeweedlmao if I know I have to go somewhere because it gibs me chinkeyes and social anxiety, so I couldn't wake and bake or smonk all day (until nao).
Anyways, we are both bad at directions but I am better when it comes to navigating, especially if I know wat she wants to buy but she decided to not tell me the whole gameplan and decided to take the long way home and spend as much as possible by not telling me her intentions and just told me "You will see" when I asked why she turned right when I told her to turn left.
We then proceeded to make an 8 mile circle with me telling her how to het back.

I usually don't abstract personalities to that level so to me she was just another deranged namefag in the endless sea of them. Sure I remember some of their names years later when prompted, but not much else. The cube who among other things knitted stuff onto public property was a cool burger, but can't even think of what his "handle" was.

It was the only place open that was close to my hostel. (everybody staying is probably 5-10 years younger on average)

My plan is the following before leaving hungary for romania:

Visit museum for history of the city
Visit museum for the subway/public transport
Visit museum of agriculture
Visit the art Museum with the classic pieces and collection
Visit Walter rozy Villa (Museum)

Eat langos
Eat something else that is hungarian
I had good food but non was hungarian :D

I saw a ukranian restaurant on my way back but i'm to asburger to eat alone in a packed Restaurant (a few occupied tables is fine)

Public Transport is really nice and the ambulance has a nice US-like Sound

Any architectually cool soviet monuments I can visit?

I will stay another day on my way back, all Museums closed then so i will postpone riding the Subway and used book stores in that day

>Any architectually cool soviet monuments I can visit?
The overly soviet parts (statues of Soviet troops) have been removed, but the "Statue of Liberty" on Gellért Mountain was built by the Soviets.
It's right on top of the old Habsburg fort and looks over the city from the Buda side.

There's a collection of soviet era statues and memorabilia in Memento Park where they put all the communist stuff after the 90s.

So budapest does not have gigantic (artistic) concrete monuments? Sad!

You live in a very beautiful city, mate. The danube has sublime power over me. I mean in a way it is like every big city but compared to Hamburg for instance it has a nice rusty charme, certainly the mountainous landscape and the river shape the face. It reminds me of italy, rome or something with all these old buildings from around 1900, trams that seem to run even though more than 30 years old. Unlike germany were most has been bombed or modernized. I took the h5 today and the seats were very good in comparison to modern seats im germany were ones ass immediately hurts because comfort got canceled

I was pining for a girl and wanted to make sure I was still in her head so I messaged her to promise I was going to take her on an adventure in my city when she's back here. She of course replied asking what adventure I had in mind. But is of course very keen despite my slightly desperate horny messages.

>There are a few options, it depends when you're free, do I get to meet you at the airport or shall I wait for the weekend and get a whole day?

In reality I have maybe one plan - take her to a hidden museum and then a hidden beer hall doing Oktoberfest. I've got this itinerary down to a science but it wouldn't be a surprise. This isn't the first time I've hyped up how I'm going to show her around so I've written myself into a corner here. The bank around Cutty Sark and Greenwich Park would make a bracing October walk to spot the deer but they've gone and relocated them.

I suffer as a homebody. And also they call the autumn cuffing season here because the cold makes people jump into things with people that lasts until just after Valentines, I suffer from this hard. I cannot be left alone in winter because I can and will get into a toxic relationship.

Slept for 4.5 hours last night. Before bed I had a pint of stout and an arugula salad with lots of hot chili peppers, and a little sour cream added too. I am messing up in the alcohol department this week – gonna try to do better next week. I felt kinda bad this morning.

For brunchie I had flaxseed bread dipped in hot mustard. Brewed green tea and drank a yucky energy drink.
In the afternoon I had another chili-pepper arugula salad – those chilis were so hot I could barely breathe lol

Around dindintime I had some of the leftover fried trout – goddamn it's so tasty. Then I had to keep working late into the evening :/
Took a 200mg caffeine pill and drank more tea. Worked for about 14 hours today :/
I am seriously exhausted, and my mouse hand is killing me.

After workies I finished the bottle of sherry from yesterday :3
And now I'm gonna drink some craft beer and maybe cook a vegetable dish because I have fresh produce I need to use...

Losing weight is one of the greatest things you can do for yourself.

After I got in shape my life kinda turned around, I started enjoying new hobbies, got a much better job, actually started dating again. Of course, it all pretty much ended in february but I had a great 2021

Slept for a little over 4 hours last night; had some really vivid dreams.
Last night I sliced up these hugeeee red peppers. They were literally the size of my forearm :O
I ate the pepper slices with goat cheese – it was so flipping good. I saved some for you Anon, you gotta try some. Say aaahhh~ :)
Drank a couple pints of delicious IPA with it too. YUM :D

For lunchie I had some yummy brown tomatoes with goat cheese :3
Later in the afternoon I had flaxseed bread dipped in hot mustard with green tea.

Work was stressful today. I have a ton to do and will definitely need to work this weekend. FML, I'm so exhausted. I feel awful :(

After workies I took ~35mg THC orally, and now I'm at home chilling out. Gonna try to play some video games or maybe just go straight to bed...

I went out and got some new shirts. Of course they are the same shirt but in multiple colours. Well, just two. Shirts are expensive. Also got a purple shirt with a vapourwave aesthetic which my mother seems to hate but I do not care. I think once I move out I'll probably eventually start dressing like Jon from Garfield.
Also picked up the Hungarian edition of Lüshi Chunqiu. It's a pretty good edition over all, save for refusing to use pinyin. I'm going to send a(n angry) letter about it to the publisher.

Had gyros for lunch and slept a bit in the afternoon.
Checked my mail and had an ominous "official message" waiting for me according to an entirely separate official message referring to it in my mailbox.
Didn't know what it could be but apparently they announced this semester's studies stipends which are calculated using your grades.
Mine somehow got doubled. I'm gonna get 80k HUF every month this semester. Fucking oligarch tier.
This is actually well above inflation.

Also the fucking system says I have a book borrowing expired and then I enter into the separate system of the libraries it says I have no expired borrowings. (Which is good, because this is the system that actually counts borrowings and late fees. If that doesn't record it then everything is fine.)
Amazing technological integration.

Slept for 11 hours last night. It felt really good. I had some strange dreams about attending some specialized training school.
Before nightnighttime, I sliced up some tasty brown tomatoes and ate some with goat cheese. I finished them this morning, along with a huge red pepper I cut up. I also diced up a little chili pepper to go with it too c:
I love peppers! :)
After brekkies I brewed peppermint eucalyptus tea :3
Then I browsed the internet and did a little online shopping.

I woke up freezing cold this morning :(
I've been feeling sick all day and it's just getting worse. My throat is sore and I feel feverish :(
I have that achey chilly feeling like when you have the flu :/

Later in the day I had to work, and I ended up working late into the evening. Ugh, FML. :(
Afterwards, I took ~50mg THC orally, and then I heated up a premade meat pie – I tried some and it's actually pretty crummy. I thought there were vegetables in here but it's actually just a bunch of ground pork wrapped in a pastry. WTF this was overpriced...
It's super dry too. Ugh I need to do something to make it more palatable.
Hhmmm I have some leftover chili peppers I need to use – Anon, let's add them to the meat pie! And you know what else, a little sour cream would go awesome with this. It'll negate the dryness and complement the hotness of the peppers.
...
Eh, it's alright. What do you think Anon?

I'm feeling kinda depressed tonight...

I went out last night to a friends birthday party on the other side of London - there's a tube strike on so this took me a full 1.5 hours using buses and it was an artist party so I didn't have much to talk about. Still, I got to see some soul band which was great once they got into it and only spent about £20 because everyone was buying food and drink for the table.

I haven't tried Jojoba so can't offer a direct comparison, but Argan oil doesn't seem to cloud or solidify at cold temperatures so I'd imagine it's ok. Certainly I've never seen any issue with my drains because of it, of course most of it is supposed to go in your hair anyway. I use this one which lets you precisely control how much you use. It gives the locks a lovely shine, but make sure your hair is still damp while you comb it in or you'll end up with greasy-looking hair instead:

Do you have curly hair? What works for me is good products, but even expensive one can be shit (boucleme in that case). Use a detangler. I was my hair with jessicurl shampoo (i have thin hair but curls), and use jessicurl conditioner to squeeze into the ends. Then i use a tshirt to gently drain excessive water from the hair, then you either let it dry by air or use a hair dryer with Diffusor (special techniques reqiured) since that Kind of hheat enhances curls (jessicurl gel gives hold and shape to curls if you need that).
No need for oil, thin hair will grease too fast

I ate some of the meat pie for brekkies. With a little sour cream and some chili peppers (and then sriracha sauce once the chili peppers ran out). Then I did some skincare stuff and browsed the internet. Feeling a little depressed today.

Now I'm opening a 1.5L bottle of Chilean Cabernet <3
And I'm unwrapping some delicious blue cheese – the flavor is super intense! And it goes amazing with red wine. I'm gonna nibble on it all evening. TBH I'm not even hungry but this cheese is going to expire so...

After reading >>82709, I was going to predict the Russian Federation will take first place in European male suicide rates in 2022, 2023 and 2024. But then found out Russia is already there (as of 2019), surpassing Ukraine, Lithuania and even Zimbabwe. Unfortunately, picrelated only shows numbers for a single year instead of a longer-term average. Also unfortunately, the WHO has data that are potentially newer than this or would give roughly the military age bracket hidden behind Google captcha, so I used these data instead, WHO via Wikipedia.
The chart does not include territories whose statistics I don't trust at all, or for which there was no data, or which were in utter chaos at the time – think North Korea, PRC, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Kosovo, Donbass, Central African Republic.

You know, I'm actually enjoying the Hungarian literature seminar. It's good. Save for the times when this ugly art-hoe is obsessively trying to use freudian psychoanalysis to interpret fucking everything.
I might have my own interpretative obsessions stemming from my canonical experiences and studies but man this is just fucking tiresome and cliché. Not to mention most of the time wrong.

Workshop class went okay. Talked about the life of two Hungarian orientalists and then I held a short presentation on hanzis. I fucked up a grammatical construction and one of my classmates corrected me and I literally looked at her and then the blackboard and I fucking facepalmed and said "Oh fuck". It was very embarrassing, especially considering that the CLASSICAL construction I sketched up was good, it's just that I fucked up the MODERN one.
It made me lose all confidence again.

A few observations from Budapest :DDD

Very nice city. It's relatively clean and overall has a laid back vibe. Lots of pretty buildings and the walk along the Danube is nice

Windy and the weather isn't great, but it's similar to Chicago

Public transit is good and it's cool that it relies on the principle of trust in a way

People are friendly overall and English is spoken pretty widely even if signage isn't

I've never seen so many attractive women with ugly men in a place before. It's interesting to see

Almost everyone is white or Asian, barely any dindus or Arabs.

Overall I rate it 5/5 breddy gud so far

I feel cheated.

On my way home I checked the books for sale. I saw one that had a weird cover design so for a second I thought it was a Chinese novel because in big letters it said ZHANG.
Turns out it was just vissZHANG or Echo. Now that I think about it "Zhang Martinov" doesn't really seem like a plausible name for a person.
Anyway, I found a small Hungarian edition of Finnegan's Wake (excerpts) and a book by fucking Zhirinovsky. God knows why that got translated. It's titled "On The Fate of Russia" ("O Sudbakh Rossii"). Hoping for some schizo fun. If I ever get to read it.

I realized that with the stipend money I can also replace my shoulder bag. As in, I can buy one of those fancy leather suitcases with a strap I see people carry around from time to time. Like fuck yeah money is fucking great I'm going to have something good that I've earned.

Slept for 5 hours last night. I ate a ham sandwichie before nightnighttime :3

Today was a busy day at workies. I wolfed down some instant ramen for brunchie but basically just worked hard all day. Drank green tea and a yucky energy drink :x
Later in the afternoon I had some yummy baked beans c:

I'm still feeling kind of sick. My throat is sore :/

When I got home from workies I opened a bottle of some Islay single-malt scotch. Let's see how it is Anon – here's your dram! :)
I've been looking forward to this :3
OMG I can tell this is super peaty just from the smell. Wow it's so fragrant.
sips
Ooh! It's like an ocean breeze in my mouth xP
It's got this salty oceanic finish to it. Whoaaa.
Hhmm, it's a little cold from sitting in my floor cupboard against an outer wall. Wrap your hands around my glass like this Anon... I need to borrow your warmth :)
Here let me show you grabs your wrists
Just hold it like that. Good. Now hold (dis)still while I waft your glass right under your nose >:)
Smells goooddd, right Anon? Like a smoky ocean~
Okayyy now open your lips just a little – here comes a tiny splash!
...
Whaddya think? Delectable, right?
Okay now serve me mine >:)
...
Oh wow, that's even better now. It's like deliciously peaty and briney at the same time. Anon, your salty warmth is filling my mouth, and it's such a delicacy ;)

mmm I love scotch so much. When I drink it this warm dreamy feeling washes through my entire body, just like how I feel when I'm close to you Anon :3

Now it's time for a bigggg glass of yummy brandy! The night is just getting started ;3

Been seeing a bunch of russians from russia IRL lately.

Interesting how they subtly differ from russians from kazakhstan. They're generally louder and more outspoken.
Also, interestingly enough I haven't seen many kazakh russians being casually drunk in public, but for russian russians it's normalized to be walking around in the evening, going to public places, etc., while slightly drunk on beer.

I had an okay day. Was almost late because the metro broke down partially so I had to go by tram.
Read some state theory between classes and then I went to a student circle meeting. We will meet regularly to prepare for the upcoming national essay competition. I will enter with a study comparing Legalism with Machiavelli's writings.
We had tea and biscuits.

I also officially submitted my thesis proposal to the Department of Sinology. It's gonna be called "Techniques of Power in Ancient China as reflected by the works of Han Fei and the Legalists".
Almost had a tear in my eye as I hit submit. Such an amazing thing to be able to do.

They do board them. Usually during the middle of the day after rush hour. At least in my experience. Even in a metro you can have impromptu pass-checks. But I haven't encountered one in a few months.
They don't have the capacity, plus since you need to show your pass or ticket anyway when boarding most buses during morning most people have passes anyway. The passes are checked just often enough that not having one would be a pain in the ass.
It actually used to be a lot more relaxed.

By the looks the chump who did it is called Endre Bíró. Strangely enough he was a biochemist by profession if I'm looking at things correctly.
Supposedly he did this in 1964 and it was published first in Yugoslavia. But it apparently had a large influence on post-modern Hungarian prose.

Slept for 4.5 hours last night. Had some vivid romantic dreams.
Before nightnighttime, I had some almonds and sea salt chips with some sour cream and a pint of strong IPA. I also took a 200mg caffeine pill last night, which was dumb in retrospect but I wanted to stay awake and party. In total, I ingested ~750mg caffeine and ~100g alcohol yesterday because I am a dummy and make bad decisions lol. Oopsie!!! xP
At least I resisted the urge to have a nightcap beer and drank a non-alc one instead.

I was freezing cold this morning and getting nakey in the bathroom was not fun xD
I felt groggy this morning but forced myself out of bed as usual. Just gotta get through this week.

I had broccoli soup for lunchie and brewed lots of green tea :3
Took a short nap afterwards – it felt good and I had some strange vivid dreams.

When I got home from workies I poured out another glass of this delicious Islay single malt. OMG it's sooo good. It's super peaty and the taste lingers in your mouth for so long ^.^

Ugh my neighbor is loudly hammering away at something and it's really annoying :/

Understandable from your perspective, but I feel the need to inform you that being on the receiving end of this reply can cause difficult-to-resolve psychological issues over time.
The message received over and over again eventually sinks in as "you are not a person worth knowing beyond your attractiveness and you can't ever be friends with the other other half of mankind."

This post was brought to you by me and not meant as judgement or prompt to change your behaviour. Sometimes it can help to know the other perspective to avoid causing hurt. And not causing hurt is good.

I understand what you mean. But I wrote her I wanted to get to know her initially because I think she is cute, but getting to know her better further and further when we continue to meet might cause me pain in the end when I know she has a bf. And I think she also has to consider my feelings. Im attracted to her but if she could really be my gf beyond an attractive body was not very clear, that is why i wanted to know her better. I think she must also understand that i dont want to be sad in the future and if she likes me she will have to understand as well. I will probably run into her on campus and I already said to her we will meet again. It's ok. She hasnt answered though and probably wont do. Perhaps that is exactly why I need to check her out better, bc I dont like such a behavior for example.

All in all I dont say you are not worth knowing but knowing her might hurt in the end, I would like to know her better but It's too much of a risk, because Ive been too invested already and from the beginning.

When I'm reading a book I'm usually pretty oblivious to my surrounding, so today whilst riding a bus I only noticed that this girl was looking at me when I was getting up to leave. She was kinda pretty, if I noticed sooner I'd have probably talked to her. But hey, she could have approached me herself. Still, I smiled at her so she wouldn't feel ignored and waved at her through the window when I was walking away on the street. She smiled and waved back.

If you don't drink the alcohol, I assume you don't absorb the calories, and you don't have to worry about not getting properly drunk because you ate some fatty foods before.

Stipend finally arrived. I feel less smug about it than I expected, but it's still very very good to have.
I ordered that watch I was talking about, plus I spent a couple of bucks on an album because no torrentz and I wanted to hear it in good quality.

Apparently I might get my application thrown back because you might need to attach a selection of literature and an outline to the title of the thesis with the application, even though nobody said you need it. They always just said "you can" and I'm not writing a fucking outline if I mustn't. Writing outlines, plans and abstracts is the most asinine boring shit on the planet and if I ever become an academic it'll be the reason I kms.
I guess copying over the conference source-list would be a sensible first step.

Had the weekly culture studies seminar and I enjoyed it again. Though I don't feel like I'm learning anything I'm just dropping le ebin truthbombs about le neoliberalism I've learned on the internet and have the lecturer agree with me.
I'm not developing new thoughts basically.

Still coughing from that cold. It's vaguely similar to the one cold I had like a year or two ago where I had a runny nose for two days and then I coughed for three weeks. Usually in the mornings.

Nothing interesting happened today really. Went to classes and then after classes I met up with the other members of the workshop to help with organising a conference in the spring.
We thought of a name and ultimately we decided on the one I came up with as a throwaway.

Checked out the book outlet. I got another Sorokin novel and a volume of a Slovak nationalist's (Ludovit Stur) writings because I've been seeing it for years untouched and I'm always vaguely curious about the "other side".
Also got a CD-Book. As in a book came with a CD. The book part is shit but for like two bucks it's nice to have a Mahler Symphony (No.5) on CD.
Been listening to them with these fancy IEM's I got and yeah it sounds good. Good investment.

Turns out I actually have to write the fucking outline for the thesis and I don't know how to go on about it. It's a BA thesis so obviously its a limited text, but I still feel like that my writing might be a little bit too limited.
But maybe mentioning that I'm going to translate from the HFZ will spice it up.
Already have the source list. I'm satisfied with it. It's got Chinese stuff on it. Got some German stuff. Yeah it shows off what I'm capable of tackling. Gonna be a real tour de force.

Took the guys at the tablet repair shop two weeks to say that "yeah m8 screen is fucked, that needs fixin'". So hopefully sometime next week I might have access to the fucking thing. I unironically miss it. It went well with my workflow and I think it opened up my mind a bit regarding tech.
Heck I even have a pair of bluetooth earbuds now and I love them even. It's just so neat to have them.
Though I think they are an inherently perverted device in a sense. Especially if you have long hair. You can wear them and people won't notice that you are wearing them. Been thinking about this fact for a few days now but I haven't really come to any conclusions. Or much of anything really.

A light switch broke last week, and I finally got around to replacing it. Step one was figuring out how a multimeter worked; I usually just flip the breaker and assume power is off, but for once I decided to play safe and verify. Step two was deciphering how the old switch was wired. It's an uncommon style; wires were part of its assembly, protruding from the sealed unit and connected to the home with wire nuts. Initially confusing, but once everything was untangled connecting the new one was quick and easy.

I bought some expensive headphones that arrived yesterday. I thought I'd be anti-monopolist and order off the manufacturer website instead of using Amazon only that meant that Hermes Evri was delivering so I spent last week in heatenings that it would either get nicked in transit or, as it happened, that the package would be stolen from my doorstep after the driver left it on my doorstep. What I didn't factor in with this is that I'm now constantly playing with the EQ settings to match the genre

Also I'm joining a whole new team at work soon on the basis of my undergrad dissertation somehow giving special skills.

I've always like these sessions - it gets even better at work when they try to organise such sessions so you're paid to be contrarian. It makes you incredibly popular with the organiser but I do wonder sometimes if tearing down the views of the idiot box wins me much kudos from the rest of the crowd. Especially when you're talking 90% of the time.

I wish it was like Confederacy of Dunces and I'd have someone to help derail the whole session with and who would then bail me out before the men with the white overall come.

Eastern Europe brain fully set in. I did it. Went out and bought a leather shoulderbag. It's so neat.
It's the same size as my old bag but it has extra pockets.
Clerk at the shop was an older lady and she thought I was sixteen. She also thought my long hair looked nice. Even asked to touch it.
So anyway, the bag's nice. Got a discount on it. Now I just need to "treat" the leather or something to prevent it from drying out. But I think it's not very urgent.
My mother says this thing looks almost completely like a bag my father used to have like 25 years ago. She says that we're acting more and more alike with my father. Which is not a bad thing I guess.

Went to the store afterwards. Bought some pens and a measuring cup. Saw a small book of Garfield strips for sale and got that too because why not. I used to live that stuff when I was a kid. It's still funny except now I can see how bad the translations are from time to time, and I can almost reverse-engineer the puns and jokes in English word for word.
Wanted to buy a magnifying glass but they didn't have one. They are selling halloween stuff though. Pumpkins. They warn you that they are inedible.
Had two large slices of pizza for lunch.

I've finished writing the thesis outline or whatever. Hope it's good/okay because I hate this shit and why can't they just let me do it without this.

>>83130
>Especially when you're talking 90% of the time.
That's my biggest problem. We have like 15 people in a small room, and most of them spend it just typing away on their laptops and not saying anything, and I feel like I'm hugging the mic even though nobody is actually ready to take it from me.
I'm a nerd but I don't want to look like one too much.

>With a literature review.
That's easy. I already have made one on a similar topic so I just added that thing and expanded it a bit.
My issue with it is that it's just much ado about nothing, considering the sources will probably change, plus nobody will ever fucking read this thing besides the department head who is for some reason needed to stamp the fucking thing and approve it, which happens after the supervisor already approved it.
So why can't he just delegate the responsibility to the supervisor who is his good colleague and an expert of the given field?

>>BA Thesis
Yes I probably fuck up terminology.
Or: Yes, I am probably more anxious about it than I should be, considering it doesn't have to be groundbreaking or anything, just a well edited compendium of sources, reaching a somewhat clever conclusion.
It's the western equivalent of the eight-legged essay.

>I should get an animal so I don't have to have a personality.
It's don't. Unless you want one it's a very big emotional and financial commitment.
I wanted to say that fish are cheap but don't substitute for a personality but I don't think fish are actually that cheap compared to a dog if you want to keep them well. Or maybe it's just the initial investment that's bigger with having to buy the tank, the heater and the cleaning devices, plus the stones/sand, plants and ornaments and then the accompanying fishes like the ones that eat algae. Afterwards the food might be cheaper.
I remember we had a fish tank waay back. I liked the neon tetras. Those are a fun fish breed. You get like 6-7 of them and they start acting like a school. It was amazing to see them make up formations in the tank.
Well, I guess if I can talk about it then being an "aquarist" does make for a pretty good personality trait.

Just after I got back from vacation (it went great by the way) our eternal emperor decided to announce the draft. Since I have no desire to kill Ukrainians, aid in their killings or especially get killed myself, I organised a change in my living and working situation. Cost me some money, but at least my new flat is in walking distance from the stables I used to frequent before, when I was living at home it could take me 90 minutes to get there. So I'm back in the saddle, literally.

We just call it a dissertation whereas a thesis is the research piece you write at PhD level. You're essentially just going through the motions at the moment, you get the highest mark by playing pretend within what is asked of you: to show someone who understands the basics of putting together a proper paper and can ultimately handle a significant project alone. The marker pretends to be interested in the topic, you pretend to be interested in the form.

Ugh I feel sick in general today. I think I've had a lingering cold the past couple weeks. My throat is sore again...

I ate popcorn for brekkies lmao. Then I took some aspirin and brewed peppermint eucalyptus tea :3
After that I did some chores around the home, browsed the internet, sent emails and made some phone calls :/

Just now I ate some peanuts with a non-alc beer, and then took ~35mg THC sublingually.

Her arms look like they're growing out of the base of her neck from behind, rather than from the sides of her ribcage.
In fact, everything from neck up is in a different perspective from the rest of her body. (also angled slightly counter clockwise for some reason)
Notice how her ribcage is receding from the camera, while the neck, arms and head are facing it straight-on. If we're looking at her boobs from the below, but looking at her scapula straight-on, try to imagine where her boobs are growing out of.

The artist clearly didn't know the anatomy of the abdomen, and how to connect the pelvis to the ribcage, so they sort of fudged it, making two overlapping ovals like a string of sausages or a squashed michelin man.
Also notice the rendering of the torso right under the boobs. What's going on there? It's just an amorphous undefined mess.
The muscles of the abdomen connect to the top of the arch of the ribcage right under the pectorals (the chest muscle). Pectorals are also where boobs grow out of.
So if her abdomen ends above the navel and the pecs/arch of the ribcage end under the boobs, what's all that inbetween?

And finally, what's wrong with her right leg (left from our view)? Why is it thinner than the other leg despite being closer to us (hip is angled to the right)? it looks like a stump. From that angle, her right leg would be covering up the bottom of the pelvies (where the vayjayna is), and we wouldn't be able to see that left asscheek.
Which I'm not sure would even stick out like that with the leg bent that way, because the ass is a muscle that connects to the leg and stretches when you bring your leg up, it doesn't just grow out of your back like a pair of reverse-boobs.

Now that I've pointed all of that out, you can't unsee it and I've ruined the picture for you.
You're welcome.

I've seen worse. Recently I played a Chinese rip-off of Slay the Spire called Indies Lies, and while most of the art is serviceable there are some true abominations - pic very related. The whole upper torso is so laughably out of proportion I'm amazed not a single person noticed or cared. Perhaps they were too busy staring at her breasts, which sprout mysteriously from the bottom of her ribcage. Although thematically I did like the idea of a psychic character using their long hair as an additional limb.

To be fair, human anatomy is really, really fucking hard.
And it takes a little bit of eye training or discretion to notice these sorts of things, so if audience doesn't notice, and you get paid for it, might as well fudge it.
It's like a TV show depicting computer stuff accurately or not. Only 1% of computer autists will notice, so who cares.

But that doesn't help me any when I want to masturbate while looking at depictions of human bodies AND I took anatomy classes in art school.
Normal people are like "unga bunga well rendered boobies neotenic face hips vajina COOOM", but I notice these kinds of things and it kills my boner.
Seriously, correct anatomy is a significant factor in my ability to get off on illustrated erotica, and I don't know if that's weird or not.
Bad anatomy just breaks the illusion and turns on the art analysis part of my brain, and I immediately go soft, because the blood is going to another part of my body. The brain, that is.

No, that's still also patriarchy, because ideologies are manufactured by the dominant social structures, and since patriarchy is the dominant social structure in basically all of the world, both the standards of masculinity and the standards of femininity are manufactured by the patriarchy.

Example: the idea that women don't fart or poop. The idea of a woman that doesn't fart is a conception of femininity from a masculine perspective, rather than some "real" or "objective" summation of "femaleness". Same as the idea of a man who isn't really a man because he didn't serve in army and didn't serve a sentence in prison.
Both are manufactured.

Sometimes I want to live in a matriarchy just to know what the matriarchal ideology of masculinity would look like. Like, having to LARP to the standards of masculinity that adhere to the female perception of reality.

i always hate this transition that happens when you're engaging with someone's content output on social media, just because you need their content, but simply by exposure you begin to sort of starting to know the person as a person rather than just a human medium for the content you need, and your brain starts to humanize them humanize them

I just want to know about [subject X], I don't want my monkey brain to file away the presenter of information on [subject x] as a [person I know]. Because I don't really know them, my monkey brain is just confused because I see their face talking at me regularly because I want to know about [thing], and my brain now thinks we're friends.

I diligently did my homework today. Also cleaned my room and entered the new volumes into my catalogue.
Packed stuff into my new bag. Fits nicely. I'm very happy with it. Feels like I made a very adult purchase.
Gonna sound stupid but I feel like I'm coming to realise that nice things are nice.
Friend said it looks like something mafiosos would exchange money in. I don't think it looks that serious.

There are still mosquitoes around. Killed 4 of them today. Their bites are a lot smaller now that it's cold for some reason, but it's more annoying since they bite me in my sleep while I do not have socks on and then my feet itch in the socks and shoe during the day, while during summer I can scratch it as often as I want wearing flip-flops.

Dog had surgery again. I was a bit anxious about it but she seems to be handling it very well. Rationality says that it's just an animal but I can't help but be attached to it emotionally.
She keeps bumping into stuff with that plastic cone around her neck. Surprisingly lively otherwise considering she has like a 20cm wound on her stomach.

Slept for 7 hours last night. Last night I ate spicy broccoli soup :3
I woke up in the night with really bad tummy pain, but thankfully it subsided.

I felt pretty feverish this morning, and continued to all day. I'm definitely sick. My throat and sinuses are sore :(

I had popcorn for brekkies again lol. Took some aspirin and brewed green tea.

Then I went out and FINALLY bought a new space heater. I've been freezing cold every day >.<
I setup the heater and so far it's working really well. I'm quite happy with it c:
Unlike my old one, this has a temperature sensor and turns on and off as needed once I set the desired heat level. It's really great. I always had to babysit my old heater. This is a massive improvement. Yay! I may be sick but at least I'm nice and warm.
Here, put your hands in front of it Anon. Really nice right? It's super hot :3
Now I won't have to wear sweaters all the time!

After setting up the heater, I spent the remainder of the afternoon/evening doing some work I needed to finish :/

After I finished my work I ate some peanuts with a non-alc beer, and then took ~35mg THC sublingually. I'm gonna play some video games now ^.^
Yay, we're nice and warm now Anon! I'm so happy with our new heater :)

I Wonder what he and other people who like to use the word 'manufactured' so out of context mean. Produced in a huge series, like in a factory? Probably not, there are not so many ideologies. Manu-factured in the literal sense of the word, i.e. made by hand? Even less so, since ideologies are not made by hand.
As far as I can tell, it is just a word used out of context, expressing a vaguely defined notion that fits with some fee-fees of some people.

So many posts, I will never read up on that. The hostel gave me an empty für bed room since i only stay a night.
I'm tired of telling people i dont speak their language + I got "ripped" by a Snack joint here in budapest, shit was like 3400 and I think he did Bill 4400, whatever He actually charges for his snacks is too high though. Maybe also got ripped in the fine hungarian food i will Gift my parents but what to expect from budapest, eh? :D
Anyway, romania was quite interesting but I'm also exhausted after two weeks of traveling. Guess i should talk to more travelers to make up for it. Tomorrow I will be back in germany and then make an iwo sometime. There was no WiFi at the Black sea for browsing, my data contract isnt made for traveling or being a lot outside the house.

I have a doctor appointment tomorrow, and was planning to ghost her, but decided to reschedule for April. Kicked the can down the road. I'll probably cancel sometime between now and then; it's just a routine follow-up needed to refill a prescription, and by my calculations I already have enough meds to last into 2025. I started reducing my dose years ago and instead of telling the doc I stockpiled pills.

Many of communists are ideologically possessed fanatics, and it's too obvious even for themselves. So they cope by saying that actually everyone is like them, and everything on earth is ideology.

Reverse cargo-cult: "white men's planes are also made from straw and don't fly".

New bag is doing its job exceptionally well. It’s comfortable and fits all my stuff.
My watch also arrived. I like it.
Showed it to my father since he likes watches and he said it’s okay, but I should eventually get something more “everyday” because this is too self-serving with its design. He’s kinda right but I wanted something like this. Something fun

I’m consooming way too hard 2bh.
Strange that both my consumption and socialisation have skyrocketed once university started.
But I have a lot of energy currently. That new treatment I received months ago works marvellously.

During workshop class We talked about lists and science paradigms and how in Sumeria and Assyria lists were the method of communicating science.
Very fascinating. Kinda wish I studied at least a bit of Assyrology. Or Sumerian.
I wish I had studied a lot of stuff. Not that I regret studying Chinese. Not one bit!
Would be fun to visit a parallel universe where I’m a third year classics student or a third year Japanology student or a third year Assyrologist student.

I glimpsed at the latest discussion by scanning a few words in the today thread and the ukraine thread and thought nah. I have gone without the past two weeks and it was kinda fine. Maybe Bad habits come back with a keyboard and a bigger screen. Probably, I mean I will have to return to my routine rotting in germany.

I'm gonna enjoy a few italian dessert varities they prepared superbly at place here and then go to sleep. And take a Look at the Black Sea as attached to this post.

And I met somebody who volunteered logistics in Ukraine.

Slept for 6 hours last night. I had spicy broccoli soup again before bed.

I called in sick to work today lol. I still feel feverish, and my throat/sinuses are sore :(

In the morning I did some skincare stuff and browsed the internet. In the afternoon I washed a ton of dishies and cleaned my kitchie!
I can finally use the kitchen in my underwear again because of our new heater Anon. Isn't that nice? ;)

Afterwards, I ate fava beans in a white-wine vinaigrette with lots of garlic c:
Then I drank a glass of delicious 100% agave reposado tequila, and brewed coffee. Now I'm drinking a glass of yummy rye whiskey, and I'm gonna have some craft beer in a bit. Yay, partytime! :)

I have a bad cold so I'm off work but I still have a guy who works under me asking me to check work and give him instruction on other stuff. I'm ignoring him in the hope he gets the message and shows some initiative but I don't have much confidence in the plan.

It's the same problem I've had for over a year with him; he can do tasks but you can't give him an objective and expect him to know what to do. I've tried hyping him up, giving him all the components for pieces of work and told him outright to show initiative but it's like he isn't capable of abstraction. As a result he'll never move up the career ladder because nobody wants to handhold him and I have no idea how his personal life works if he's like this at work.

Oh well, I won't have to do it much longer and the team will be under capacity so he'll have to grow up and show some initiative or get hurt.

I invite you to formulate a rigorous distinction between "sum of cultural artifacts" and "ideology".

The assertion that one perceives reality "as is", without the lens of ideology, is the most ideological position of all.

Sure. Not sure what that has to do with the discussion at hand, though, but I'm glad you got the opportunity to use a catchphrase you learned from Lurkmore or from someone on sosach who read it from lurkmore.

Frankly a laughable statement.
Go ask your average countryman whether they think that russia is getting up from knees and that the wect is decaying.
Unless you think that it's only the average english speaking westoid lib who has a pure, unbiased, objective perception of reality, and everybody else doesn't.
And then you accuse me of having a west-centered worldview because I care about climate change.
Sad!

Average vatnik is less ideologically charged than you are. He simply repeats what he is told and "rooting for our team" like in soccer. He doesn't pray to The Theory of Putinism and doesn't read boring books about it. He doesn't think about it in everyday life, like whether it's ethical to buy American Iphone or not.

It's dangerously easy to scam social security. I've known about this from the perspective of a social security beneficiary. With the right mindset, you can secure the minimum social insertion income bag. The ones with the will to triumph can secure a middle class existence.

What I had no idea is just how easy to scam social security from an employer's perspective. You are paid upfront 6 months wages for any new hires from any 'disadvantaged' background. The applicant in whose name you're taking the bag has no input on the process, no confirmation from his side nor even any indication that you've used his ID and contract to enroll in a cash for hires program. Despite the nightmare process of working through the various requested papers and certificates from various government entities and assembling them all together in a way that looks presentable for social security - once that's done it's very straightforward. They pay you the whole thing in one lump sum. It's not clear that I'd even be liable for refunding SS if the new employee was terminated.

Now all I need to do is post 40 job openings, secure the bag on all of them and flee the country. God knows how many more other unsupervised programs and schemes I could apply to before making my way to Omsk with a duffel bag full of euros.

Pure cope.
It is exactly that they consume ideology passively, without examining it, that vatniks are so useful.
If they were actively thinking about ideology, that would mean they'd be forming their own opinions, and at some point those opinions would contradict the official narrative. It is preferable for ideology to have people believe in it passively, unconsciously, rather than actively.
Unironically 1984 mentions this
>One of these days, thought Winston with sudden deep conviction, Syme will be vaporized. He is too intelligent. He sees too clearly and speaks too plainly. The Party does not like such people. One day he will disappear. It is written in his face.
Why do you think russian ethnonationalists keep falling out of windows?

So... are you a passiv or an activ gay consumer of ideology?

I could list any number of reasons, but they all boil down to the same thing: Telling the doctor would have led to a conversation, and I like to get out of the office as quickly as possible. I've had epilepsy since infancy and growing up with tests and continual prescription refills- being reminded I was dependent upon them- led me to view doctors as adversaries. A necessary evil I cope with by keeping them all at arm's length, by saying "yes doc, no changes" and just moving on.

People who have never heard about Putin or Ukraine are as much convenient. Vatnik has no ideology at all. He has some set of beliefs about reality (faulty or not) and emotional attitudes to them. That's it. There is no some mental framework which is supposed to explain and judge entire reality from cosmology to everyday life (like with communists and their dialectic materialism or with religious fundamentalists).

Ideology is not being able to let go of a story someone else put in your heda. And the excuses you come up with to hold on to that story are your remixes of it.

If you want to get rid of ideology you have to learn to look at your own thoughts as if they were someone elses opinion ~~and then not judge them~~.
