Hi dead. Particularly the anarcho-nihilists. I generally consider myself a post-modernist and want to know more about your ideology. I have read the basics and understand the gist of the ideology. But I’m interested in learning more, especially would like to read or watch anything that can practically aid of the destruction of society or that can help with at least clearing my own local space and voiding it of meta-narratives. Love u, thanks.

Now that I think about it,faerie creatures already are like that in pathfinder,they also lost empathy because they're immortal and unaging,so think murder is a fun side activity. (they just respawn in the fae world,unless killed there in the first place,then they're dead)


>Come to think of it, how would you present a race that's above capitalism, feudalism, communism
They never developed a class society or developed something different. For fantasy races it makes the most sense to do this based on the aspects that make them different.

Elves live forever so the original elders hold onto power indefinitely. Instead of producing heirs they just keep having offspring, who they keep loyal to them. Controlling reproduction is still important but for different reasons - only the elders get to reproduce, because the more generations removed you are the less loyal you are.

Dwarves are so focused on crafting by nature that they don't need class to emerge for them to start producing a surplus, and because they all bond over their common drives to mine and craft, they naturally lean toward a planned economy accumulating treasures and devices. Their greed might make them vulnerable to the kind of people who became early capitalists in human society, but without an already-existing feudal state to seize, the wannabe capitalists lack the power to do primitive accumulation or to proletarianize other dwarves, making capitalist production at most an oddity on the periphery of dwarven society. Through their tendency to tinker and dig, they are most likely to start burning coal and to develop the steam engine, leading to steampunk communism. However, they also tend to be insular and knowing the kinds of things that the capitalist dwarves get up to, are extremely protective lest early industrial technology proliferate among other races who lack the worker-centric ethos of dwarven society.


>who they keep loyal to them

By means of?


That's up to them, but probably the least resource intensive is infantilizing the kids emotionally and making them desperate for parental approval that motivates them. Maybe that's why elves reach maturity at a much older age, too. The more kids you have the more they have to compete for attention but also the more opportunity for rebellion, so there would be a balance to strike.

The thing about being immortal is you have plenty of time, and you don't need to have a high birth to maintain your population because nobody dies of natural causes. So the leaders of the society can personally keep raising a new generations of mommy's boys and daddy's girls as necessary. You don't have to rely on some ideological apparatus or state institution if you can personally raise your people the same way generation after generation. Elves would have the least dynamic society by far, and probably be continuously speaking basically the same language and holding the same ideology with thousands of years of continuity.

Elves tend to me more magically inclined as well, which means the elders would have more time to master magic than entire civilizations of other species. They wouldn't even need mundane psychological abuse. They have charm spells and such. In a really extreme version (like the drow perhaps) they might dominate person so much that younger generations don't even form individual identities and their society is more like an ant colony than a human-like culture.


In Spirit Island, does the fact that we play as wondrous spirits, as opposed to the island's inhabitants proper, detract from the anticolonial struggle?



Yes I know, it's an anime board. But since this board is relatively dead, how about a nice curve ball to spice it up? if worse comes to worse more the thread to /hobby/

Anyway, I just recently watched season 1 - 9 (and some one offs) and I was wondering what's your guys opinions on the show? I personally enjoyed it, with these being my top three:
1) Bart gets an F
2) Homers Enemy
3) E-I-(Annoyed Grunt)

It's pretty obvious why 1 & 3 are solid, but I don't see people talk about 2 that much. Which I don't get why.

Homers Enemy; Frank Grimes, is obviously the personification of the "dream American worker". The dream worker who in any dire situation will simply just "pull up his boot straps" and work harder to get a better life. The reality is though is that, no one actually cares about him going through those hardships. Yes, while Burns did originally try to hire him after seeing his struggle, he was predictably ignored after Burns found the next shiny thing to gawk at, and the hardships of Frank was quickly ignored by the rest of society.

Maybe it was obvious and I'm slow, but the lesson that it taught is still a great reminder, that is: a system that abandons you to unnecessary hardships is not going to care if you actually succeeded in those hardships.

This reality is hammered in further with Homer existence, one who has gotten off lucky and lived by all accounts a fairly fulfilling life. Any mess ups that Homer has cause is ignored since as long as profit is made, they don't care what he does.

>The soybean, soy bean, or soya bean (Glycine max) is a species of legume native to East Asia, widely grown for its edible bean, which has numerous uses.
>Traditional unfermented food uses of soybeans include soy milk, from which tofu and tofu skin are made. Fermented soy foods include soy sauce, fermented bean paste, nattō, and tempeh. Fat-free (defatted) soybean meal is a significant and cheap source of protein for animal feeds and many packaged meals. For example, soybean products, such as textured vegetable protein (TVP), are ingredients in many meat and dairy substitutes.

good thing we're not cows


youre probably allergic and your body is inflaming


The thought inflamed my dick


Thread reads like /pol/ seething, but whatever, soy products are pretty neat. Tofu is incredibly versatile. Western stores usually only have "firm tofu" which is not easy to work with unless you're doing stir fry.

Other tofu preparations are great to add to a lot of meals, even when they have meat. For example, you can make a nice meat soup broth with a ton of veggies and meat pieces, then add soy/tofu balls (the ones that you buy dry and have to hydrate to use) and the balls are like sponges that will soak up the broth. You can also use tofu as a texture. It also keeps way better than meat. Sometimes I'm running out of meat, but I have an emergency ration of tofu to increase the protein content of whatever I cook.

Also good for salads, for example. Its so versatile, honestly. If you're scared about girl hormones or whatever, then just buy estrogen blockers or testosterone, or better yet, actually read scientific studies on the matter and drop the idiocy.

Soy sauce, both light and dark are absolutely essential if you're a home cook and strive for easy, quick, impromptu, and delicious meals.

Soy milk is meh.

Edamames are nice. I like to put tajin (a Mexican powder candy) on it and maybe some soy sauce, then cook that shit for a bit. Maybe a lil drip of seasame oil too.

Chinese cuisine, which is largely not vegetarian, has tons and tons of tofu preparations and tofu presentations.


What exactly is the point of soymaxxing? Isn't it just some ridiculous way of just going normal vegan? Is soymaxxing supposed to be "extra healthy" than just regular vegan diet somehow?

<Who is right
None because they're cartoons


Since neither one engaged in class analysis they're both cucks


Malcolm x was based though


Stan Lee through Magneto fetishized the whitewashed image of Malcolm X as a black supremacist extremist when he was none of those things.
Both got murdered by the FBI before they were able to. MLK got shot immediately after he started talking about socialism.Malcolm was murdered by a glowie when he started to expose the nation of islam as an FBI honeypot.


The X-Men are literally glow ops for the government to hunt down radical mutant groups or enemies of the state, particularly the American state. So I'd say that Magneto is a proper revolutionary.

They’re functionally too big to actually create

When I say that I don’t mean in the sense that someone can’t just create a map for players to relax in I mean in the sense that creating all the levels and ways for players to interact in every sector of the map on the scale servers provide is functionally impossible for any modern sized team to accomplish

Reasons established in post 2


>reason number one there’s too many players to account for

In nearly all games level design is the largest task to fulfill because it consistutes most of the content in a game along with having the largest flowchart of steps required for a level to be fully fleshed out in comparison to asset creation. Levels in MMOs need to be designed to account for all of the mechanics present in them along with needing enough levels so that every player within a server can have a level of enjoyment present in them while accounting for the reality that several players can be in the same place at the same time

This is terrible on the developer end both because it means the amount of time spent constantly designing things like structures, hubs, dungeons, monuments, special locations, secret areas, while taking into account things like
<the cohesion of colours and objects present in each set to make sure levels feel unique but like they’re all working together to suggest an idea about a certain game location and not just randomly stitched together zones with goofy transitions seen in WOW or even games like dark souls 2. Or even worse games with little variety in their world and level design leading to boring gameplay experiences seen in BDO, and well most MMOs today for that matter
<all of this PER PLAYER PER SERVER. Something like this in your standard open world game or even linear title would already be a disaster to work with but when taking into account how many players are expected to be in a server for games like these the amount of effort needed to provide the things in the last point just becomes unrealistic to any studio with at least hundreds of millions and several years to just casually blow for anything even resembling finished to come out


Because of the above points most modern MMOs have defaulted into reducing server sizes to ease the developer end of level creation and because of this we’ve gotten games like warframe, destiny, and fo76 that have a visibly increased level of quality both in gameplay mechanics and world design when compared to the main figures of this genre of gaming and just goes on to highlight how difficult overcoming this actually is not to mention

>reason number two. Group based activities

Designing an experience multiple players can take part in and enjoy without the experience feeling sterile, or too easy for anyone to look back at their companions and feel proud of. It’s not easy to pull off just look at the old raid design of WOW, most raids take several dozen members several hours for minuscule rewards at the end in dungeons that feel like labyrinths to explore through due to how much effort these levels were given from their developers. Obviously it’s very hard to go through these in any party for any member but when these raids works at their best, they feel fun and like every member is equally useful to the group they were in it’s also why veterans going on mythic raids have some of the most dedicated to an almost cult like extent members because everyone knows what they should be doing. This is one of the best aspects of WOW, one of the only intact considering how much more barren and isolated attempts outside of pvp content can be to bring people together in WOW, and one of the hardest things to replicate in most other MMOs of its type.
Imagine having to design these kinds of mechanics for everything else in these games that amounts to more than just single player content with co op elements.

Really consider it


I don't think so. It's not so much that MMOs are too big to work so much as that they make themselves too big to work by trying to appeal to everyone. You take what is already recognized as the most difficult genre of video game to make, and you add on a few more Herculean tasks, like trying to create "action combat" for MMOs, and you stretch your resources thin, and then you put in features that directly undermines your content, such as LFG teleports and flying mounts, to essentially appeal to people who don't even like MMORPGs, and you've turned the creation of a satisfying MMO into a Sisyphean task.


Feature creep tends to be a bigger problem among older mmos than it does newer ones
Take wow compared to new world. Wow has flying, pets, god knows how many races and classes at this point, an entire branch of gamemodes aimed at pvp. The base game ignoring expansions feels like a theme park meanwhile new world is pretty basic and only has community events at its core. Doesn’t even have mounts

Since US tech embargo on China is still in effect and US plans to squeeze Chinese tech companies by restricting their access to computer chips. China's reaction to this was to make one of their goals to have a home-grown alternative for Intel, AMD, TSMC and the like to decrease dependence on the US. So I was wondering what kind of progress have they been making lately and what are their prospects of ever having a viable alternative to Intel and AMD?

There is all this talk about SMIC, Loongson and Zhaoxin and that in early 2020 Zhaoxin allegedly published a chip comparable to 2017 level intel and AMD tech and they are planning to have parity with Intel in a few years. Then there are Some sources are saying that China is failing horribly at acquiring manufacturing tech for more advanced processors. And I really can't make any real sense out of it.

So when will I be able to buy a computer that uses a hardware that dunks on burger made tech and sends my personal data to Beijing instead of Washington, if ever?

yeah it will be problem if they aim towards like towards consumer GPU's for PCs since they basically need to construct new APIs and have to get software devs to support them to compete.

>Society is bad because disabled people aren't marginalized enough
The groundbreaking, revolutionary message of punk



Slow progression in older games feels way less brutal than in contemporary ones and I finally understand why. It’s diablo 2s fault, and the reason is balance. Progression based off understanding vs progression based off a players stats is what makes grind feel terrible, in the case of the former the effect is far less severe as you can still progress through the game you play without interruption but for the ladder suddenly the gear you have on you, or your items, or your team if your playing a turn based games becomes everything about the games progression itself and suddenly when that gear isn’t constantly coming the game feels like shit

Diablo warrior didn’t have this problem despite progression being even slower and more painful because it was closer in its setup to a classic rpg, diablo 2 made the original generally more casual and soon after it caused hordes of titles inspired by it to emerge including the even bigger grind fest that is d3 and this cancerous component of game design that used to be ignorable is now what greedier game devs abuse to push micro transactions in the form of boosts and p2w bs in their games

No it didn't, look at early MMOs like Ultima Online or Everquest for example. Everquest took xp from you when you died and Ultima Online was like the wilderness in Runescape except (originally) it covered the entire world so you could just get randomly shit on by some super powered player and lose all the stuff you grinded hours for. And there were a LOT of really shitty RPGs in the 80s/90s that took unreasonable amounts of grinding to beat.


Diablo 2 was the shit, I loved playing it.


No idea what you are talking about.
Even more popular rpgs from the 90s like final fantasy 6 could get kind of grindy.

Yeah his biotech method failed in a Pet Cemetery sort of way, but he clearly has the genetic material for it, & still retains the expertise to create Ootsutsuki abilities (I still can't get over this "Shinjutsu" retcon) so the Rinnegan is probably not a stretch. He clearly has little moral issues in his experiments either, so all it takes is an Edo Tensei or similar 'shell' and then fully reviving the body. The concept that this guy that is making super-jutsu fails to think of this is retarded.

start out with using something like TidalCycles (Haskell EDSL), using your computer as a fancy sampler/sequencer. What it does is arrange patterns, and its fairly natural for rhythmic electronic music.

>Blocking a user because they come from a "bad place", or blocking an instance because of some moronic "this is a list of CULTURE WAR ENEMIES THAT ARE LE chinletDILY DUDDILY BAD BAD BAD " tenuous justification? Fucking no.
Defederation works both ways tho. If those sites didn't defederate over such things they'd actively made fedi as a whole worse, necessitating a defederation anyway. Do you really want to interact with those guys?
>if there were sites that would have denied you an account or ability to browse their content because you had a Gmail account and they were Hotmail/MS friendly and vice versa, or if you had an account on an Xbox fansite all the Playstation and Nintendo users would block you (or force you to juggle other accounts, email and pseudonyms so they wouldn't know about it creating a lot of needless bullshit), it wouldn't be an open web or Internet.
That's not really comparable, the gated fedi experience is less pleasant than normal fedi so people usually leave to more open sites. Importing and exporting means you can even move to an instance that isn't federated. Also self hosting is a thing.
Besides, what you described has been the case for a decades now. But sites that don't go to that extreme succeed over the ones that do.

I don't understand why any of this is an issue. You can lead a horse to the horses but you can make it horse.


it will die like all other capitalist enterprises because eventually they will run out of people to profit off of, and being they all rely on forever growth…

Its the timeline facebook is on right now, nowhere left to expand and a dying userbase.

In a better world instead of looking for "decentralized alternatives" we'd nationalize all social networks and liberate their source code.


I agree, social media should be nationalized; all of these apps/sites where made by proles.

This charlatan has lost another five K
On an ill-fated gamble, I'm sorry to say.
Rather than lend to a friend in some pain,
He pisses his talers away down the drain.

Beyond this, his politics queerly decay,
His fantasies sillier grow by the day.
He conjures whole armies right out of the blue,
From Naples to Austria, Hungary too.

What's worse, he believes he's fixer of sorts,
That my struggles with money are ripe for his sport.
He acts all the part of a baron and churl,
Who settles affairs prostituting my girl!

To put it in absolute terms; a majority shareholder owns the majority of the company, therefore they can do whatever they want with it (as long as they don't intentionally destroy the business), minority shareholders don't make management decisions (unless they group together to make a majority) or are on the board, etc

Very normal everyday situation. Did you ask some AI to come up with it?



Chatgpt helps lower the bar in making it easier to solve tasks, while also raising the bar in the complexity and/or specific of a task you can take on – the reason why I gave the example is to highlight that higher bar.

For simpler examples: you can use the ai to scan a photo of your math homework and get the answer for it, ask it to write an essay, ask it to make music, or even chat with gpt on a issue you have and have it stream line the process of figuring out the issue.

idk why'd you hate it other than just hating techbros.


>idk why'd you hate it other than just hating techbros.
Because it keeps failing spectacularly.


I really hate how people keep talking of ChatGPT "hallucinating" as if it was a fault in the model and not exactly what it was made to do.

The issue with your example was that it made absolutely no sense.

you need a really specific type of personality to wear cdg, the poster boi for me is john waters. if you see him in a kooky cdg blazer with mismatched plaid panels and the buttons all off kilter you know it's a self aware joke.

but if you see some HK moneyboi in the same blazer he'll just look like he robbed a hobo.

you need serious presence to wear hardcore cdg or work in a very creative field. cdg makes a mockery of normal / banal / try-hard people who attempt to rock it. especially the last group, it's only for tru zenboi's.

obviously the diffusion and basic lines are really chill and anyone can wear them no problem but the true mainline show stopper pieces like pic related are for a very select handful of people.

cdg eats fuccboi's for breakfast, you dont choose to wear cdg, its cdg that chooses to wear you. you're either born with the cdg dna or you're not. there's no faking it. no other brand has as much potential to make you look like a retard, and it will make you look like a retard if it can smell your fear.

you gotta be a tru zenboi, there's a reason you never see darkboi's and darkdad's fuck with cdg, they take themselves way too seriously. when you've got a giant zipper placed directly on your buttcrack you gotta look like you did it entirely on purpose and don't even give a fuck you gotta look like if someone unzipped that shit and took an insty pic that you'd tag yourself on fb with it and make a cool joke

if you're a thirsty ass nervous bitch who stutters on the internet and you try to rock that shit your'e gonna look herby as fuck bro. one of the past seasons was half pastel pink with grandmas couch status embroidery everywhere, what do you think a normal person is going to look like in that? straight aborted illegitimate will.i.am's sons status bro

And Pong



I just finished this game and holy shit the historical revisionism in here was insane. While I love the setting, the whole thing with the assassin's was so horribly done. Remember when the assassin's actually had an interesting philosophy and didn't pick any side of the christian vs muslim conflict and instead assassinated those who they perceived to be actual bringers of war only to realize that the Templars wanted something similar to the assassin's just going about it a different way. But in this game, or at least with the later games you actually are fuckin picking sides like Connor siding with the Patriots or Bayek and Aya siding with Cleopatra despite the fact that the Ptolemies were colonizers. They act like Cleo was this "true Egyptian" what the fuck? I remember this one side quest where there's this woman fighting because of Greek colonizers and you don't get any choice but to kill the Egyptians fighting to decolonize Egypt, a Medjay of all things. Also Medjay disappeared after the New Kingdom fell a thousand years before. Wouldn't it had made sense for Bayek to be an anti imperialist as well?


I don't know what you expected honestly, any game that dives neck deep into conspiracies comes out reactionary in the end


This game was made by my fellow Canadians as a casual pass time for people that liked AC and East African aesthetics. Don’t expect a super political dive into the plot it’s meant to be enjoyed for the emotions it inspires and characters in it not on its commentary of the time it’s setting takes place in

Isn't it alt-history tho? I haven't played it since AAA stuff tends to bore me, but from what I've seen it's not trying to be accurate, it's playing with historical figures like dolls to tell it's own story.


The first Assassin's Creed actually did have interesting things to say about philosophy and human society and especially did commentary on the time period which was the Third Crusade. It's one of the first games that got me into history and politics and philosophy. AC Origins had a huge opportunity to actually tell an interesting story about Egyptians fighting a losing battle having long lost its "greatness".


>The first Assassin's Creed actually did have interesting things to say about philosophy and human society

I don't exactly remember it that way personally lol

Though I did think the concepts were vaguely interesting, I would have been more inclined to see a 'modern assassin's creed' where you actually fight the Templars IRL.

Way to completely miss the point the guy was making.

Even today in the age of internet, a globe spanning information network, combined with economic superiority of the west, english is not spoken by every person on the planet. But for some reason this "lingua franca" is the only language that is spoken by people it seems, because outside of somerunes of the door, none other languages are encountered, the supposed language diversity have zero bearings on the plot or characters. It is spoken by everything - from fucking trees to spider that is thousands years old that was residing under literal rock for those thousands of years eating everyone she encountered. How exactly Shelob is supposed to know this "lingua franca"?


>>Times it factors into the story: 0
Everyone and their dog knows about Durin's Door lmao. There are multiple occasions where reading, speaking, or translating text is important as well. Not to mention all the times characters discuss minor discrepancies of terminology like hobbit vs halfling.

The general point about everything speaking Westron is a fair criticism, but mainly insofar as it constitutes missed opportunity. People are often multilingual so it's not much of a stretch for some characters in large regions being able to communicate with each other through a common tongue, not unlike with Latin. And this does indeed happen. One example is when Treebeard speaks to Merry and Pippin in Westron but to the other Ents in Entish. As for Shelob, she was actively hunting intelligent creatures who spoke the lingua franca and she is also intelligent so it's not really surprising she would learn it. Not that she speaks in the story except by implication since she communicates with Gollum somehow.


>People are often multilingual
Not in LOTR. There is difference between being multilingual and everybody speaking the same language. Characters aren't written as nultilinguals who have to communicate with each other using one of the languages, they are written as if all of them speak the same language. Even fucking spiders.
>she was actively hunting intelligent creatures who spoke the lingua franca
Hunting and eating, not speaking to them. And definitely not learning their language ffs. This is just a ridiculous argument.
>but to the other Ents in Entish
Oe maybe same language but slower.
>but mainly insofar as it constitutes missed opportunity
More like bad writing. And that means that lotrs fans don't have any high ground about "muh invented languages" over got fans. Tolkien just as shitty writer as Martin is. Actually even worse since later managed to write at least a couple of decent books.


you're an idiot


Moorcock's criticism of Tolkien is overblown by Tolkien haters. Moorcock admitted Tolkien was a big influence on his own work.

fellow zoomers get ITT. I'm making this thread for myself, since it's all I listen to these days. don't hesitate to recommend shit you like. it does not necessarily have to contain rap. anything in the area of trip hop, downtempo, lo-fi, chopped and screwed, gorillaz. you get the idea

some artists:
Knxwledge is a former soundcloud producer. he's the founder of the sound that YouTube calls "lo-fi hip hop" these days.
Mach Hommy, my current favorite rapper. possibly the greatest rapper of all time. just released a great album called Fete Des Morts.
MIKE. rapper and producer. makes a LOT of music which is mostly him rapping over his own beats.

But I feel like that show is a bit libbed with how much it wags a finger on how jimmy gets things done

Like the system is still corrupt but the writers think he somehow has to pay for all that he has done in an unjust world


alright but no kissing

Which console is better if im looking into getting a gaming console?
19 posts and 1 image reply omitted. Click reply to view.


I have a PS3 that I still use because it has custom firmware and a ton of PS3/PS2/PS1 games and roms/emus from older consoles and arcade games on it. I find it pretty convenient and easy because I enjoy playing old games but hate having to sit on my computer.


I used to use steam link to stream games from my computer to my macbook air, the only detail is that i need to manually add the shortcut for ps2 games, but i see your point


naw its all of the world


Switch, but if you have to get one then I guess Xbox because it has better backwards compatibility and GamePass is pretty nice.


PC is the way to go, especially if you were considering Xbox vs PS5 either …
>Build or buy a new one yourself for gaming
This will be perhaps the most costly, but will give you the most sustaining power over time and of course. Either build one yourself ,buy a reasonable pre-built, or get someone else to buy/build one for you. Using discounted, used, or other high quality parts on sale can help get the best value
>Upgrade an existing one for gaming
Depending on how old and what form (ie if its a laptop things will be harder), you may be able to simply add a handful of components, notably new GPU, RAM, and SSD and make your computer way more gaming capable. This may or may not be worth it compared to a new core build, but its worth a shot
>Steam Deck + Deck Dock
If you want something "easy to use" console like, inexpensive, but NOT locked down, look into a Steam Deck. A solid value, well supported, and you're supporting Linux, openness, and generally not being a shit.
