Cheaters in gaming

DT misses the main dynamic why so many cheat in online games.
https://farside.link/invidious/watch?v=dem8FsXXV7A

It's basically like an arms-race cascade.
Somebody makes the first move by making a game-hack and going online to "cheat-bully" a bunch of other players. They don't consider this unfair or petty, because they had the skill to make the cheat-program and technically they use their own skill to beat the other players. Obviously those other players do not see it that way, and some of them will make their own cheat-programs or pay somebody to do it, so they can cheat-retaliate. They want to be ready, the next time somebody cheat-bullies them, so they can switch on their cheat-program and even the score. They will also use their cheat-program against regular players, maybe because they mistake somebodies luck as cheating. And then more people get annoyed at this and that sets off an expanding cheat-wave. The reason why this is so unstoppable is because countering cheaters with cheats is rational behavior on an individual level (game-theory: retaliation in kind), it is only irrational on a collective level.

Developing anti-cheat software is not a effective method to fix this problem, it's just containment to keep it at bay. Anti-cheat software isn't even intended to solve the problem, it's only intended to counter-act it. That's the business-model. If they make an effective solution that fixes this problem once and for all, they won't have repeat customers. It's also very plausible that the people making the anti-cheat-software are also the ones making the cheat-software. After-all the most profitable way to exploit a conflict is to supply both sides with "weapons".

There is a simple solution.
Step 1 A server-side algorithm measures the primary skill characteristics of the game
Step 2 Sort people so they play against others with a similar skill level.
Step 3 All the cheaters will register as having a superhuman-skill-level and sort them self into a few cheater-servers.
Step 4 Non cheaters will register as having a human-skill-level sort them self into the non-cheater serveres.
Problem solved
People who want to cheat for the sake of hacking the game as a programming challenge can do that, people who want to play fair will not be bothered. Only Assholes that seek to ruing the fun for others will loose out.

So shooter-games for example one would measure aiming-accuracy and reaction-time. People who use aim-bots would measure as having really high accuracy and super-short reaction-time, and there would be no need to determine whether or not somebody is cheating and no risk of false-positives. The objective server-side measurements will reliably sort the cheaters into the cheater-corner, where they can continue one-upping each other until they have fully automated playing the game and can get hired by game-companies to build really advanced non-player-bots. Everybody else will have a pleasant experience playing the game as intended against players with a similar skill-level.

Does someone want to show some class solidarity by linking plans to an ultra ultra light (under 1000 lbs) tear drop like trailer for one person? All I have is a toyota camry like compact car and it can't tow more than that. I was thinking the interior would be like a capsule from a japanese capsule hotel except with a cassette toilet, sink, and some sort of propane powered mini fridge, stove, and mini oven. I would also like to hook up electricity from an rv park

I am poor but live with my parents so I can afford to spend a little bit of money. I make 35k. I was looking at completely open utility trailers yard workers use and thinking i could build it on that, if that sounds reasonable. i dont expect anything more than a 4x5' space i could cozy up in in some sort of state park for electricity so I could remote work and still stay afloat.

R: 64 / I: 16

Self Improvement

Hello comrades. ITT we talk about what we are doing to improve ourselves. I'll go first:

I am trying to quit smoking. This is probably my sixth attempt but I am going to try and take it more seriously this time.

I have been cutting down for the past few months and had gotten down to 3 cigarettes a day but when I tried to quit earlier this week I ended up buying a pack at the end of the first day and smoking the whole thing that night out of anxiety about quitting.

I am a drug addict in recovery and this leaves coffee and kratom as the two substances I can use. The kratom seems to help with cigarette cravings or at least incentivizes smoking because I feel sick when I smoke on it. I might try NRT too. I am going to try and get back into running too since that helped me get off heroin the first time.

Weird exotic fruit

Has anyone trier any unusual fruit? I found the channel of a Yuppie who has traveled thr world eating all kinds of exotic tropic fruit or having it delivered.

https://youtube.com/channel/UChsbD6Clp-ZPqKwXJR3V7DQ

It makes me want to grow some unusual trees. I'm starting with a miracle berry tree. supposedly once eaten the berry causes sour things to taste sweet for thirty minutes. I am excited because it would allow me to basically give up on having sugar in soda. I could just drink lemonade without sugar, and eat bitter healthy food without suffering.

I'm also interested in growing Chico, a cinnamon tasting kind of apple. And there are a ton of sapote I'd like to try eating, and also snake fruit. The truth is most of the food and fruits we eat at super markets are only there because they're easy to produce or shelf long. The best kinds of fruit which are grown for personal taste by farmers are usually not mass producable.

That's why we as lefties need to take the time to plant more exotic fruit trees so those trees will always keep giving back. Then we can share the fruits without relying on supermarkets with the same damb flavors. We can literally eat more gourmet food once we fight back against big agriculture and capitalism.

There are for instance many kinds of bananas and mangoes with different flavors and textures but you'll never see them, when all the bananas at the market are literally from a tree that has been cloned millions of times. Check out his channel or google "exotic fruit" if you've never left your home and don't know what I'm talking about.

> Che was often seen wearing a Rolex Submariner

THE THING that will MURDER YOUR BACK if it's not GOOD.

We MUST establish a GENERAL THREAD in order to CONGLOMERATE INFORMATION pertaining to MATTRESSES in order to sift through the LIES and TRUTHS of BOURGEOIS MATTRESS COMPANIES.

We WILL NOT be mattress ENTHUSIASTS, but rather APPRECIATORS.

AFFORDABILITY and long-term DURABILITY & COMFORT are the most SUPREME VALUES which MATTRESS APPRECIATORS ought to ADHERE TO.

Starting premise for discussion:
Is the Purple a load of SNAKE OIL?
Or is it the genuine FUTURE of MATTRESSES?

Psychedelics General

GQ:Are there political or social ills that that you think might benefit from the sort of entropy that psychedelics can introduce into our consciousness?

Pollan:I do and I don't. I do in the sense that the experience addresses what I see as two of the biggest problems we face as a society. One is an environmental crisis, born of our sense of distance from nature: our willingness to objectify nature and see it merely as a resource. The other is tribalism: our inability to see the other as like us, and the egotistical zero-sum game with other people, whether it's other countries, other races, other religions.

Along comes these medicines that actually change consciousness in those two domains, very specifically, by making us feel really connected to nature, that we sense the subjectivity of other species. Which should lead to treating them with more respect and care, and feeling a deep implication that you're part of nature, not just a spectator. And then, on the tribalism side, [it] makes you feel deeply connected to all different kinds of other people. So you could argue that this is exactly the drug we need right now.

But then you need to stand back and say, “Wait, is it possible to prescribe a drug for an entire country?” How many people do you have to give this experience before you change the culture? And that was something Timothy Leary spent a lot of time on, he had these predictions of how many people he'd have to trip before the world changed. There's no model for prescribing treatment to a culture. That takes you into a really terra incognita of social change. I think, for that stuff, we still need politics.


Is he right? Will Psychedelics help with archieving the lower stages of communism, or are they to advanced, so that only in a well developed democratic dictatorship of the proletariat they can help transition further into full gay luxury psychedelic space communism?

The practice and principles of Permaculture are one of the most important tools for not only creating a sustainable socialism, but also for repairing the damage done to the global ecosystem by capitalism, and lessening your individual reliance on the current capitalist system.Permacultural practice and socialism are two very powerful allies, and learning about permaculture should be necessity for modern socialists and communists.

Starting a far leftist subculture "SovCore"

Maybe we don't have enough power to have a great influence over politics but we have the power to have a great influence over people if we mobilize and take action by creating a new subculture to atract people's interest and take them out from that ignorance that leaves our enemies and traitors to win, a subculture with good aesthetic and it's own type of mentality will work the best to have a great change into society or just make things more fun a plan for this is SovCore.
>What is SovCore?
SovCore is a Soviet nostalgic subgenre of punk which incorporates several during or post Warsaw Pact aesthetics into one mixed with some alternative ones, it is a way to revolt against this Capitalist system and also promote a strong patriotic sentient.

>Mentality of a SovCorist

Basic Soviet mentality like Brotherhood/Sisterhood like minded, promotes gun, fitness or car cultures, helpful to community, feminist, aggressive, fanatical patriotic, AntiGlobalist, AntiFascist, AntiCapitalist, Antinationalist, racial separatist, continental unionism ex Asian Union, equalitarian, opposed to Capitalist rooten fruits such as sexual revolution stuff or mainstream pop culture

>Style

Basic alternative fashion combined with East European aesthetics such as military surplus or thug styles, the goal is your style to give an East bloc vibe, piercings are welcome in a small number and tattoos the best are the minimalist ones or based of Soviet prison tattoos ones

>Music

WitchHouse, Harbass, Post Punk, New/Dark wave, Chanson, Alternative rap the goal is to sound as gloomy, angry or Sovietic as possible

Against Soccer

Modern soccer is a joke. “Jogo bonito?”—not anymore. Soccer is marred, among other things, by the beguiling act of—you already know it—diving. Take the 2021 Euro—almost every game here has been decided by a player diving and getting an undeserved call. The most striking example occurred today (i.e., July 07, 2021) in the Semifinal, when a blatant dive in the penalty area by an English player (i.e, Stirling) led to England’s undeserved win over Denmark. Diving affecting major games is not a recent phenomenon—it has been ongoing for years now. Take, for example, the “No Era Penal” incident back in 2014, wherein the infamous dive by the Dutch player Arjen Robben led to Mexico’s undeserved exit in the Round of 16. Hell, back in 2011, researchers published a paper (hereinafter named “Gwendolyn”; see link below) which studied diving in soccer. The paper found the simple fact that players dive when the benefits outweigh the costs of doing so. See Gwendolyn. Keeping this in mind, Gwendolyn suggested that increasing the ability of referees to detect dives and increase the punishments associated with diving may deter players from doing so. See id. But look where we are ten years later. If anything, the problem has only gotten worse—even with the introduction of VAR! Will there ever be an end to this quandary?
I resoundingly say, “No.” The tools are there, but the buffoonery continues. Clearly, the game has vitiated into a shell of whatever former glory it had, and there are no signs of improvement on the horizon whatsoever. Some people may blame the players, but I say to them to heed the old adage: “Don’t blame the player, blame the game.” Indeed, soccer—in its current, professional state at least—actively encourages diving, and I will not judge a player for maximizing his chances to win when his livelihood is on the line. Something must change, but will it? We all know it won’t. I am not here to propose solutions or even suggest that they are any. I am only here to point out that soccer is terminally ill—already dead, I should say—and it’s time to abandon ship. Watch a different sport, pick up a hobby, or actually play soccer in real life—anything beats this facade.

Is poetry dead?

Button "Poetry" kept getting aggressively recommended to me in ads on Facebook, so I decided to check it out, and I have come to the conclusion that it is the most vapid psuedo-intellectual bourgeois spectacle I have ever seen (pic related)

Libs eat that shit up when the poems aren't even well-written because it tells them what they want to hear. Sure, you can like what a "poem" is talking about, but that doesn't make it a good "poem", and the stuff they talk about is basic bitch lib shit anyway like "a cashier looked at me funny once at the grocery store, it was probably because I'm LGBT". Or stuff about muh depression. Newsflash; we're all depressed, honey. It's hard not to be in a society this alienating.

If this is what's considered good modern poetry, can poetry be saved, or is it dead and buried? All of the examples of modern "poetry" that I can think of are similarly vapid, but I am very okay with being proven wrong.

WW3 Scenarios.

So, might as well put this fanfiction I made on how could ww3 go:
>Ukraine launches an offensive into the popular republics and Crimea, they advance a little. Ukraine declares war on Russia.
>The Donbass and Luhansk republics welcome the Russian army.
>The Ukrainian army advances into Crimea, but gets stopped. They conquer some, but get boggled down.
>Russia's military is organizing itself hard on this, and mobilizing itself.
>A month happens with people getting killed but no advances aside from light ukrainian advances.
>The west won't participate yet, but will help Ukraine through military support and it will tell through incredible mental gymnastics that Russia attacked first.
>People are not supportive of the war going on, but they won't care because they see it as just a regional war, no one cares.
>There will be some outrage at the west supporting Ukraine but it won't escalate.
>Then Turkey and Azerbaijan, using some shit excuse, attack Armenia to conquer it.
>Russia intervenes and starts invading Azerbaijan.
>Syria and Iran, maybe even Iraq, start attacking Turkey and Azerbaijan, since Turkey occupies parts of Iraq and Syria right now and Iran is fucking tired of it's bullshit.
>Erdogan says: Assad must go!
>Pakistan is big on being a turkey fanboy, and invades Iran.
>India then goes and invades Pakistan because Kashmir and so on.
>Pakistan starts getting beaten by both India and Iran, no nukes used yet, until Pakistan gets between the sword and the wall. Then it launches it's nukes to both Iran and India, although mostly to India. Maybe a nuke makes it to Russia.
>India in response drops all of it's nukes on Pakistan
>IT_ALL,_RETURNS,_TO_NOTHING.mp3
>Iran is mostly unaffected by this. I mean, its capital has been nuked, but hey, AT LEAST IT'S NOT INDIA.
>India and Pakistan are the first to completely collapse, with warlords coming out of the woods like flies, kinda like post-heydrich germany on TNO.
<"India and pakistan are the first to completely collapse" oh boy just you wait it's gonna be epicly based and posadist-pilled.
>People are fucking horrified as they wake up from the "end of history" dream as the first nuclear apocalypse just happened right now.
>Big ass riots in order to make the war stop right now.
>People get ignored and the media starts making excuses.
>Azerbaijan collapses from both southern and northern pressure as the russian and iranian military enter it's capital. A ton of warcrimes will then be discovered, and this event will be known as the second armenian genocide.
>The turkish front gets bogged down, the advances the turkish made get retaken, but the other armies can't advance as well, getting into a stalemate at the mountains of Anatolia. People die daily on that front but not that much movement is made aside from Turkey attacking again and again and the KPG getting big money from Russia and Iran.
>Turkey, also, after the indian fiasco, starts getting anti-war riots. These riots will be put down by a newly installed nationalist military goverment with Endorgan as it's president. Thousands of people will be incarcerated or killed.
>Turkey starts funding yihadists groups inside of Russia. These groups, aside from making some big incidents inside russia, will spill into other countries such as MENA countries or european ones.
>Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia, knowing Iran had been nuked, gets it's opportunity, and tries to invade Iran.
>Of course, Saudi Arabia fucking embarrases itself and collapses as iranian missiles fuck up it's water and petroleum trade.
<And another one bites the dust.
>Aside from this movement from Saudi Arabia, at Ukraine, Russia organizes a counter-attack. Operation Uranus 2.0 La Verganza. From north the russian army advances and cuts off the ukrainian front at donetsk and luhansk. They conquer pretty much everything east of the Dnieper.
>Tons of ukrainian warcrimes are discovered.
>Aside from that, the Ukrainian army at Crimea safely retreats, but Crimea is on shambles. Sevastopol is now a ghost town.
>The russian army still goes on and cross the Dnieper, and in 3 months or so they're at Kiev.
>This scares the shit off NATO, Ukraine gets into NATO at the last moment, and the whole of NATO declares war on Russia.
>China then invades Taiwan to help it's ally Russia. China enters the world war.
>The NATO army is an unorganized mess. The European front has lots of nationalities put into one big army, Spaniards with Greeks, Germans with Italians, France it's not in NATO so it shouldn't intervene, but it's from the EU so it will intervene. The only people who understand each other are americans and bri'ish people.
>Aside from that, they need to get organized in a moment.
>Bielorrusia joins the battle at the side of Russia (or might not, I don't know).
>Polish troops and baltic troops are the first to arrive.
>Eastern European militaries are plagued by corruption, it's army is pretty much useless aside from european support.
>The front gets into almost WW1 borders, Russia conquers till they reach the border with Germany, The Check Republic, Slovakia and Romania.

>Meanwhile, on the asian front, Japan suddenly starts a conscription service and declares war on China. This is hugely unpopular among the japanese people, and riots start to stop such a law to come to be. Japan then gets it's own military goverment a la Pinochet, and becomes and even bigger client state for the US. This conscription law will separate the country in two.

>Not that it matters, as North Korea conquers South Korea and nukes Japan for thy Lulz.
>This makes the separation inside Japan really fucking big between the anti-war movement and the war movement. The anti-war movement will be financed by China, and it's more radical part will take the leadership, although the Chinese will fund the most moderate part that is still anti-war, meanwhile, the pro-war goverment inside Japan will become a lot more repressive. An unspeaken civil war occurs inside Japan
>The US, alongside Japanese recruits, try to conquer Korea. They get bogged down not by korean troops but by the People's Liberation Army, also known as the chinese army.
<Japan might have a communist revolution.

>Meanwhile, let's talk about the toll that this war has made.

>Firstly, about India and Pakistan.
<India and Pakistan become into warlord territory, and millions upon millions of refugees start getting out of the irradiated mess that is the Indian peninsula.
<The "-stan" countries, like Turkmenistan and so on, COLLAPSE HARD, their goverments can't handle the refugee crisis, and other goverments inside their borders start taking power. The Taliban take hold of all of the region and start their caliphate and reign of terror on their jihad. They won't conquer more than those territories, as they have a lot of other problems to tackle.
<The only country to survive this apocalypse is kazhakstan, as it's choke full of chinese and russian military to stop jihadism.

>Meanwhile, at the south-eastern countries of Asia.

<A similar story, the indian refugees come into those countries and are so much people that their goverments collapse as there is not enough food. Anarchy takes hold of the region, with warlords coming out of the woods like flies.
<The US make it's operational base in Asia the Philippines, Australia, and Japan. Most of the war with China is fought on sea, so there's nothing really important happening there. Aside from that, they try to land on Vietnam to try to make it governable again and conquer China with them, this doesn't go as planned, South China is mountainous, so the fight boggles down.

>Meanwhile, at the world.

<The indian nuclear apocalypse has made a layer of dust through the world, making it get less sunlight.
<At the same time, war is literally the most contaminant activity we humans have deviced, the US army makes more CO2 than 192 countries combined.
<Climate change really kicks in, and the poles don't exist anymore, Cuba is now 3 islands, Florida doesn't exist anymore, the Netherlands is underwater, all of the pacific islands have ceased to exist. Crimea, the land they were fighting for, now literally doesn't exist, but the war, ironically, goes on.
<The layer of dust made by the Indian Nuclear Apocalypse (INA) has made it so crops don't grow because of not having the sufficient light to actually grow, as it has happened times before when a massive volcano literally exploded.
<OH BOY HERE'S THE GOOD PART, THE GOOD SHIT.
<ALL THE COUNTRIES OF THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE OR AT THE EQUATOR COLLAPSE UNTO FAMINES
<IT ALL RETURNS TO NOTHING
<THE ONLY COUNTRIES WHICH WILL HOPE TO SAVE ITSELFSARE THE ONES THAT HAVE STORED FOOD FOR THIS HAPPENING AND HAVE THE POLITICAL POWER TO RATION IT
<HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAA
<Also this will make a refugee crisis so hard not till now seen, more extreme than the barbarian migrations during the end of the Roman Empire, shit's about to go down.

>Meanwhile, at the American continent.

<The US probably has made some plans to conquer Venezuela and Cuba
<They enact them.
<People are pissed about it.
<Guerrilla Warfare against US occupation.

>Meanwhile, at Europe.

<Most of the countries in Europe don't fucking want to be at war with Russia aside from the Eastern ones, the most anti-war countries would be Spain and Greece IMO.
<On the case of Spain, as a Spaniard myself, this anti-war movement would be fucking gigantous. We already had an anti-war movement during the Irak war in which we participated in, and our army, compared to the rest of the european armies, although well equipped, is it because of it's adherence to NATO. During late Francoism the spanish military made drills with ww2 junkers and using gasoline caskets with grenades attached to them as bombs. The military in Spain is the most corrupt organization in this country, and getting it purged against Russia would be incredibly funny if it wasn't because they would implement a draft (as in the majority of Europe tbh) to combat Russia. That, alongside the anger against the politicians, the capitalists and the king itself, which is also the commander of troops, kinda like Nicholas the second… I don't have to tell anything more tbh. Spain, being also an enter way into Europe would have problems with refugees and an incredible instability on itself, aside that the country is run by actual monkeys, there would probably be no rationing at all, making the food prices skyrocket till infinity. Everything of that would mix on a revolutionary cocktel from which a communist revolution could arise. A liberal revolution might happen first, with a republic, and then another one, kinda like the russian revolution. Hell, even Felipe VII looks kinda like King Nicholas from Russia.
<Spain might have a communist revolution which would then spread through Europe, maybe Portugal and Greece would have it's own revolutions, and would get out of the war. France is another one which might have a revolution, Italy I don't know, Britain could have one since Britain is already going to shit the bed, even without the whole WW3 happening.
>The US will conquer part of Andalucia through Gibraltar to ensure that it bases there remain loyal.
<On other countries, I don't know how it would go like, please answer this post with your conclusions.
<Either way, the war would boggle down hard, and we would get into a WW1 era of trenches, only now with drones.
<The EU will have to make a separate peace treaty with Russia, which will stand "victorious" (saying much tbh) at the war. The EU will be dismantled and Russia will make client states at Poland and the Baltic states, taking everything else for themselves. The EU is in shambles, but at least it hasn't been nuked to death. The peace treaty was to try to avoid a communist revolution, it will happen either way, or there might be a civil war inside of the EU between communists and the other groups, comprised of "liberals" and literal nazies, from this war, the most likely winner would be the communists, since technically they would have come from the south which had it's factories kinda untouched because of being so far away from Russia.
<Either way, the EU doesn't exist anymore, it's a shell of it's former self, and there's people starving to death on the streets meanwhile a civil war turns really sour.

>The US-Chinese front.

<The last front, this front has done nothing at all, and with Russia out of the european front, and coming to help the chinese, the US will resort to the last tactic possible.
<Red Telephone Incident (RTI) of 05/12/2024
<Russia, China and the US enter a mad max radiation periode, alongside japan, Australia and the Philippines.

>The aftermath.

<The only places that continues to kinda exist is some countries of South America and communist Europe, but they will enter a long, looooooooooong dark age of maybe two centuries or so.

Art Deco

http://markluskin.blogspot.com/2011/03/from-archive-dark-deco-by-dr-michael.html?m=1
&ltthe Art Deco enthusiast, like the devotee of Expressionism, is by that interest making a statement about the nature of his or her soul. He or she is impatient with surface images, bored with frippery, and drawn by the weird and the outré. Art Deco portrays the human being as one secretly wishes to be: a kind of _Metropolis_ robot[rix] with a dispassionate, cool, and cruel disposition. Art Deco is never warm, cozy, reassuring; it is glacial and impersonal. Those fearful of, dissatisfied with, or contemptuous of human emotions seek in Art Deco a mirror which will show them - and reinforce in them - only the non-human aspects of their souls.

/Scibbon/ - Scientific Study of Gibbons

We need to study the Gibbons. Collect all the new youtube video that is related to the Gibbon. Only then can we unlock their secrets.

Here's a recent one: gibbons fighting
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Si31_UKLaa0
Notice how their comical anatomy makes them physically unable to hurt each other. (And please, take note in your scibbon notebook.)

Here's the other Gibbon.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qxQAB5C3Glo
Note: it's called kulak gibbon - a very rare species indeed. It got its name from hoarding humans. A single kulak gibbon can hoard up to 6 humans, but some sources say they've seen a whole human village being owned by a kulak gibbon. (N.B. in your notebook: further study of Gibbon class structure is required.

More on warfare:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCP9wqgtJhE
Notice the superiority of Gibbon agility vs. the puny jaw strength of the dog who can't even bite once. Other species it seems, are afraid of the Gibbon. The Gibbon uses tactical warfare aimed at influencing its enemy's psychology, the enemy gets irritated, makes mistakes, the Gibbon wins.

Another inferior species: the feline.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWZ2QVx9pr8
It has no chance against the Gibbons masterful coordination and speed. The feline is immediately defeated. Inferior scum felines. If Gibbons anything more than inferior scum canines, it's the coward felines.

Let us study more Gibbonology together.

I wasn't really sure where to post this but I guess this is the most appropriate board given that Mukbang is considered "entertainment" by some people. Can you lads help me out with this? I've watched this shit more than once and it's just so repulsive and off-putting that I have trouble understanding what the appeal of it is supposed to be.

I don't know why exactly, but I feel like this genre of social media content is the perfect representation of how venal and awful late-stage capitalism is. All these videos depict pointless, disgusting excess that brings neither the audience or the person eating any lasting gratification. It's hollow, nihilistic consumption that only produces misery for everyone involved. Do the people who watch Nikocado Avocado slowly die from kidney failure get some sort of sick pleasure out of watching a mentally unwell man kill himself by eating an entire Taco Bell menu everyday?

Ready Player One

watched ready player one with the family today.

it was okay, not as super obnoxious references as I expected. but, overall the plot was a bit miserable, basically the whole world has retreated into the virtual game due to the world being terrible late capitalist hell where 'people have given up trying to solve our problems', and the heroes struggle to inherit control of the virtual world from its creator instead of letting an evil corporation take it, at the end they just decide to control the game themselves as a group and 'the game will be closed on tuesdays and thursdays because reality is real'. also the game is like totally pay to win and addiction forming obviously, which they don't do anything about

I mean geeze they could have at least signed the game over to the community as a co-op or something, be a little more radical, especially since they rallied the community to help them at the end and a bunch of them died (permadeath item loss), then just became a monarchy.

But I guess that would require liberals to actually think democracy and popular control is desirable. The idea of 'virtuous elites' is pretty deeply entrenched. On the other hand, at least they ended debt slavery where the evil corporation would use people as gold farmers in the game, so it's pretty radical, for the late 1800s. Guess liberalism has never moved past that point so it fits.

yo so i guess i havent really listened to too much music from bands from this era or at least not there most recent releases part of it is to preseve the mythologizied part of them from my youth and to just say "that bands old" or what ever but this is not the point really as I'm sure many know brand new's lead dude said he did some stuff to chicks on tour way back when and like that's really just the tip of the ice burg in regards to this as there were so many allegations flying around at one point i just stopped i stopped listening it wasnt worth it any more i hate to sound sort of like a chud here but it was like when i was getting into leftism… i made a passing line about my admiration for a band in the genre (that genre being emo and pop-punk) specifically over me liking a non problematic band and this woman had the audacity to call me a "stan" of the sexual predators which i wasnt defending at all but it has made me not want to discuss music any more i used to play guitar every day and just like knowing that

1. I'm Older now and being a muscian dosent feel the same as it used to i used to feel cool i used to feel like it was empowering now i dont know

2. should we just be like "oh there cancelled never speak of them again" or should we be like a bit more aware of that trying to look into cases though the sheer amount of them all was so overwhelming im tempted to just NOT do that

3. is Music bourgeoisie ?? is it impossible to ""enjoy"" music in a "captalist society that exploits the common man's labour ?"

i miss being able to enjoy music how much of that is from growing older and how much of it is becoming more informed of "problematic elements within your music taste"


it's weird cause like despite my awareness of other things being "inherently reactionary" i have still let myself enjoy them un affected by my turn to leftist politics in some cases turning them into a new way to direct my political energy


I'm usuaully willing to duke it out with these sorts of people who are also apart of my leftist circles with everything but music or specifically this sort of music i even have gone so far as to start embracing international music so i cant be accused of "clearly this artist is a misognist" cause if i dont know what the words are saying then i cant be "doing harm to women and girls" like that one women said me liking this genre did

Hoping someone can expand and provide some more context for some thoughts i've been having lately. For example in this clip from the latest mandalorian(don't watch if you don't want spoilers). The defeat of the empire and the second death star was originally a simple happy(if not lazy) ending to a series of adventure films. Now it's always kind of, for lack of a better term, deconstructed.

My earliest memory of this is Clerks. if memory serves that one was actually a conversation about the first death star blowing up and how it made luke skywalker a murderer or something. But it was supposed to be a half joking kind of thing. Now that ironic reflexivity seems to have totally replaced any kind of genuine sentiment.

Now look I know this is easily explained by shitty writing and copyright licenses. The property of star wars makes money so you have to find a way to keep milking it and since people already own their own copies of the original, it has to be sequels that don't depart too far from the original or else it it'll become something else and possibly not make as much money. But my point is that it creates a very actual shadow of circular recurrence over the society thats watching this. A sort of cynical defeatism where nothing can ever get better and disrupting the status quo will only ever lead you back to the original struggle anyway. Things can't end, so things can't change.

lolcows

This is a subject I'm not sure if its worth bringing up or not but given the makeup of the Bunker's userbase I figure at least a few other people here are engaged with following various lolcows

The main one I'm following at the minute is an American kid called KingCobraJFS, and watching his stuff is like slowly sliding into a bath full of human waste, its utterly fascinating watching the real time decline of another human being without the constant stress of experiencing that kind of thing IRL, I've been following M'lord Cobes for a year and a bit now and his slow deathspiral is really accelerating, watching his latest saga I started to think about how large an impact people like CWC and other lolcows had on chan culture and how this kind of mass insight into a stranger's long running nightmare was basically impossible before the internet, it feels like an extension of professional celebrity culture, but more pathetic and grimmer, a uniquely late capitalist experience

Am I a terrible person for watching this kid fall apart from afar, even though I don't interact with him at all, don't tap the glass etc.?

What lolcows do you follow?
Do you empathise with them or is it purely a hate watch for you?

I feel bad for Cobes, I really do, he obviously has a number of serious mental health issues, but he's so fucking obnoxius, unpleasant and spiteful its hard to feel it sometimes, and he's too funny to stop watching

'Self Help' from a leftist perspective

Hello everyone. I was just wondering if anyone has any helpful resources for improving your life but from a left wing perspective? I find all the vacuous and trite content of the 'self help' industry where it's basically just con artists pretending to be rich and successful so they can scam other people for the secrets to be rich and successful, and I can't engage with absurd alienated advice about 'being an entrepreneur', 'marketting myself', 'just visualise your BMW until you have it' and so on.

I'm very depressed and I find it hard to do anything. I don't have a job either and I live in my parents place. So any steps forward would be helpful. But for whatever reason I find it really hard to 'just do X' to improve my life. I feel like everything is fucked so what's the point in doing anything. Whilst I might understand that capitalism is a cause for many of the problems in the world including the ones that affect me, it doesn't really help me deal with it or find a way to make my life tolerable. So, is there anything that has helped you?

Buildings should last

So many fabulous and easily maintained buildings have been demolished because of short-sightedness. We shouldn't be vandals of architecture. We should preserve the Penn stations and the Russian cathedrals of the world, and not just demolish our monuments.

Funny, I just started watching it with my older brother a few days ago.

I think its view of history is warped, or at least it appears so. The relationship of the characters with their environment and the impact they have thereon seems to suggest that the show supports "great man theory".
Some bloggers have written about that:

Pro:
https://medium.com/@ProjectRob/the-conservative-heart-of-legend-of-the-galactic-heroes-8d3d41d128fa
Con:
https://desperatetimes914496456.wordpress.com/2020/02/21/legend-of-the-galactic-heroes-too-critical-for-its-critics/

I find the notion that it supports GMT more believable; it is shoved in the viewer's face in moments like when Schoenkopf says that he wants to save Yang because "history would be boring without him", which implies that history wouldn't be moving if Yang was dead.
Although it isn't necessarily related, the fact that what appears to be a semi-feudal autocracy had coexisted with a bourgeois democracy for ~150 years is telling - it suggests that governments, economic structures, and culture are alien to the material conditions that exist and the level of technology & science. This is obviously anti-marxist.

Speed Reading

How to become much faster at reading, while also maintaining acceptable comprehension?

I read 240 WPM which is about average. I have so much to read, I won't get through it all if I stay a readlet. Watched some YouTube videos and people are saying many of the speed reading techniques are bullshit. Like extending your peripheral vision to read more words simultaneously in a broad stroke is apparently not possible. Not vocalizing the words you read apparently significantly reduces comprehension. Another technique is to selectively skim some parts you deem to be less important while assuming you will still understand the gist of what has been written when you read the rest, which is kind of a sleazy way of "reading" faster. I literally want to read the entire text FASTER. The fuck do I do here fellow niggas?

Educating others

R: 13 / I: 2

Is it just me or are most jobs in IT utter bullshit? I am not referring to "Bullshit Jobs", the book. It's something different.

Take say twitter. The mobile twitter front-end in particular. What is twitter? Chunks of text with occasional hyperlinks, pictures and videos. There are also a couple of forms, to register, to submit a tweet, to report stuff, etc.
So again, it needs text, pictures, links and forms. All of that is supported by HTML directly, i.e. it doesn't even require a single line of javascript to accomplish that.
But judging from the fact that on an old phone twitter may take half a minute or more to load or it may actually fail to load, or freeze up while loading, and taking in account how generally sluggish it is, it's obivous that it isn't plain html. In fact, there's probably a good dozen of megabytes of JS and CSS code, and that is after compression. The code that nobody every asked for. "Yeah I'd really like some people to spend their time writing thousands (?) of lines of code just to provide me with a site with the exact same functionality but with way poorer performance" - said no user ever. Bloated frontends should actually push users away it'd seem, and they probably do to some degree, that's why e.g. nitter and invidio.us exist.

And this doesn't only apply to twitter. The same with youtube (there exist even more alternative front-ends, hooktube and invidious and there probably are more). The same with the vast majority of sites on the web, actually.
There are countless frameworks like React or Angular, that achieve the same thing as can be achieved using regular HTML and some js, but they make websites slower AND require people to develop them AND people to learn them.
And by the way AFAIK nitter or invidious devs aren't paid anything for creating the sites, they might receive donations but that's it isn't it

So who profits from the labour of those who develop such sites? Why would the capitalists behind e.g. twitter be interested in
a) Paying more people
b) Making the site less attractive to users, thus potentially reducing their profits.

I'm sick of seeing stereotypical "california lifestyle" shit in concept cars. Here's a few examples:

http://www.diseno-art.com/encyclopedia/concept_cars/honda_extreme.html

http://www.diseno-art.com/encyclopedia/concept_cars/gmc_pad.html

Yes, the examples are a bit dated but the dated nature of them just shows how stupid this all is.

And, as it directly pertains to Leftism: in the 1930s the government created a specific architecture for rural areas, known as National Park Service Rustic. NPSR-national is just a styled blend of everything, but it was adapted by California's government for various uses around the state: in the north CA Park Rustic tends to lean towards clapboard-looking shacks while south of Fremont (a notable place, it's where the first railroads went through to Oakland) they went for plaster-based spanish designs. Both prominently feature the state's colors: white, red and brown. Spanish buildings trended red while Norcal ones trended brown.

Why does this matter to leftists at all? Well in transportation specifically these colors were used to create what is now Caltrain's logo, back when the state government decided to just take over service completely from it's disinterested private operator, Southern Pacific. Notably SP's first class passenger colors were silver and red, and this transition marked an important step in American cultural development as (wait for it) Americans, including stereotypically rural ones that voted for Reagan all six times, voted for the government to provide a service that private industry was unwilling to continue. This was a hard fought victory, while Amtrak had already existed at that point this was a step in forcing the President to not stop Congress from buying Amtrak their own equipment (at the time, Amtrak was still using 30s-era legacy cars given over per the terms of it's creation).

On a similar point, same goes for SF's Muni whose choice of grey/red reflects the growth of Norcal's economy relative to LA's; Muni's old yellow/white paint existed in response to LA's rise and LA is associated with warmer colors. None of this is referenced in automobile concept cars, because car concepts are what companies want people to be and not what they are. Though I find it ironic that with all the concept RVs, none of them depict the reality of RV homelessness which is propane tanks, small generators and a strong septic smell.

In short as all this godawful bullshit over trying to make a "Californian" car happens, California already built itself it's own railway so to speak. And this happened while everyone was still drinking the oil industry's spookery about communism. The current attempts at making a "California" cultural automobile are as stupid and ridiculous as trying to make a "California" cultural soda can or "California" cultural mobility scooter. It pisses me off.

By the way, pic related is what Californian architecture was from 1950-2000: a 10-lane freeway built on top of cut down railroad (originally it was four tracks, turned into four after a nearby tunnel fire). In LA I-10 flanks the Sunset Route.

WHO /BRAINTRAIN/ HERE?post braintraining shithttps://www.brainturk.com/dual-n-backI just started, apparently doing a session of this a day can help you quit drinking. its like a miracle. The way you play is you push the button when the sequence repeats however many times back. So it starts with 1 back, which is easy, you just gotta remember the very last position and letter. Then it goes to 2 back and its a lot harder on your attention span. post scores

Anons, help us make something great.

https://discord.gg/bNnugSJBunker Media is a project to make a blog and a small podcast/radio show with a background playlist of laborwave and fan-made music based on a Wordpress-based website. We need writers, musicians, editors, translators, programmers, and listeners. We're planning on reporting on news, theory, practice, book discussion, and maybe other stuff besides.>inb4 complaining about bunker media using discord

Magic the gathering General.

Well, throne of eldraine dropped and, I have to say, this is probably one of the most impressive sets i've seen come from wizards in a while.Other than the push on all the whales and timmies there's some good things in this; genuinely unique stuff.The alternative art/border cards really do look amazing.But let's get down to business:Right now, with the current format and meta change I would say that blue red and green on really on top right now. Blue has some great control and red/green has just been astoundingly fast. I have been hitting for almost ten by turn 3-4. Red was also blessed with some control in the form of Opportunistic dragon.You throw some pelt collectors in and some Bonecrusher Giants and you are looking at some serious threats being placed on the field.Right now I am running a Red/Green beat down deck. It's not optimized, but, it is running smoothly.Anyone else getting into standard right now? What are some of your thoughts and opinions?/Strategies?

Serenity now

Listening to an obscure radio station on a certain imageboard with a couple other listeners, several tabs open all with different topics, ranging from the NSFW and a blog on the feasibility of living in sewers to a live-stream of three painters critiquing their owm art. Fast food in one hand and my dick in the other, foot on the mouse and the other on the keyboard.
