15" is ideal for an 18" barrel imo. Anything longer and you start covering the barrel too much, we causes problems when shooting off barricades, shooting through car windows, etc..
don't bank on them doing anything quick - the commercial market responding to such a thing would take a lot of time alone.
keep in mind as well, there is still A LOT of 5.56 rifles and ammunition floating around North America and I doubt the US government is going to just destroy a bunch of old M16-pattern rifles. again, it's your call, but after having the same paranoia over 6.5 grendel and 6.8 SPC, I just stopped caring until it's in right in my face, on the Cabela's shelf in bulk. moreover, 77gr OTM and TMK rounds can really stretch the capacity of the 5.56 in terms of wounding potential and range - astonishing in a 14.5" to 18" barrel, really. I would not use ball ammo for any serious application, such as self-defense, unless you are really short on cash.

>Actually the sks was originally designed to fire 7.62x54 that’s why it has a 20” barrel. The extra length on the barrel actually hinders the smaller 7.62x39 cartridge that it fires, the barrel let’s the gas start to overtake the round as it travels through and lessens the velocity as it leaves the muzzle, I have two sks’s and thought about cutting the barrel down to 16” on one of them as a test for that very reason, plus it can’t just be me that thinks the sks is way to big and heavy on the fore end for any practical use anyways. I mean could you use it as is? Yes. But would it be better with a shorter barrel? Definitely.
Saw this on the NarcoFootage sub talking about this dude's SKS. Useful info for everyone since you all seem to have SKSs.

I've seen only a few other threads about horror on here and they seemed too specific, so I thought I'd make a broader one.

How do you feel about the current state of horror media? To me it seems at it's always been in a way; a mixed bag. However I feel like I've noticed this trend and, correct me if you think I'm wrong, a lot of more successful recent horror seems to be more creator-driven than in the past.

This is natural I think, as the internet has opened a lot of opportunities for more unique visions and riskier decisions that large studios would otherwise reject.

In a strange sort of symbiosis, though, these large studios attempt to acquire these successful creators and even properties for themselves; see the phenomenon of Slenderman for example. Once an entirely community made, solely internet creation has gotten several of his own movies, and has by and large become an 'artifact' of sorts of 2010's-era web. Studios cannibalize these unique properties and, once they've made some modicum of a profit, utterly destroy the integrity of them, leaving communities to look for the next big thing in horror.

With that aside, feel free to discuss almost literally anything horror related here; movies, books, ARGs, games, creepypasta (the rare good kind, if you can find any).

Fucking based
I never watched the movie and always felt uncomfortable how much pol liked this movie but lmfao they got project muh jews onto everything


>I never watched the movie
Why haven't you seen it? You should, and also watch Zizek's funny commentary on it.


The movie is great were can I watch zizeks commentary?


I got the feeling that they were satirizing something (that I can't put into words because I'm ESL) at the end of The World's End too.
Has someone else felt like this when watching Hot Fuzz? It's the only one I haven't watched recently so I wouldn't remember if there was anything that could be considered commentary on capitalism.

>why would the fire nation develop faster than any other nation, from a materialist standpoint?
Power, like in the physical sense. They can create fire out of thin air, which means they are able to heat things up more effectively. It's the same kind of benefit as having oil. Other benders can only move things around. Firebenders can create energy. They're insanely OP in that respect, even though fire has other limitations that make up for it in most (small scale contexts). Fire can't be used to build anything, and it just doesn't work underwater (unlike airbending which can make bubbles) or if it's too cold for the bender. It's also dangerous in ways that the others aren't. IMO the show did a great job making the elements balanced in a general sense but also giving them massive strengths and weaknesses that shape the whole society.

>water-bending could easily be used to create powerful water turbines

Problem is this is both unintuitive and inefficient. You need people to continuously power these turbines, when in reality you only set up such a thing at a natural source of water. They might be able to reshape rivers to this end, but just having people run the turbines is the same kind of thing as generating power by people riding bicycles. Also for it to scale at all you need to discover electricity.
>and earthbending has the ability to track and unearth great quantities of ore and coal
Only Toph is shown at first to have the tremorsense abilities, although earthbending obviously makes mining easier. Just because you have the resources doesn't mean you have the technology to work them, though. Prior to the development of ironworking, iron was not seen as particularly useful. It's too hard to work without sufficient heat, and usually full of impurities. Without the ability to metalbend, it's probably just not worth the effort for an earthbending culture to figure out advanced metallurgy since they can just send earthbenders into combat, and their "weapon" is just sitting around everywhere. It's sort of like mining asteroids to us. Sure it's possible in theory and it would be very useful, but the difficulty of it compared to the much easier alternatives means there's little incentive to try it.

I explained why there is focus on killing by Aang in my posts about the Lion Turtle Deus Ex Machina; They specifically focus on his dilemma of violating his principles of pacifism, and then just give him the ability to make a choice with an asspulled new ability, which isn't something uncommon, but still feels like a bit of a cop-out. This is in the same tier as Goku going Super Saiyan against Frieza, except unlike Energy Bending, that was talked about at length over the Namek Arc, while Energy Bending isn't even mentioned until the final couple episodes, thus we get a feeling of a copout >>2756 >>2810 >>2816 >>2817 >>2822

Additionally, his Avatar State against Ozai was an accidental unlock. A literal plot-device rock hit him in his lightning scar… why didn't toph's massage do that when she pounded his entire back with rocks? Plot. Why was the rock specifically in that spot to hit him? Plot. It's a bullshit move for an otherwise awesome scene.

Finally there is a saying; Pacifism is a coward patting themselves on the back.
It's one thing to be against violence or harm and thus seeking other methods, that is being a gentle soul. But outright refusing to fight seriously and be ready to kill because you're against it and refuse to budge is pathetic negligence. Making the hard decisions and dealing with them is the consequence of having power and leadership, and if you don't you are jeopardizing the lives of everyone behind you.


here is a decent video about the ending of avatar


I guess we might see a resurgence of Avatar stuff with the netflix release of the series


> Aang was never going to do it, so him pulling back doesn't sUbVeRt ExPeCTaTiOnS and narratively it's kind of blue-balling or something.
How so?
I actually like the way they did Aang’s ultimate refusal to kill Ozai, it reminded me of Luke’s refusal to kill Vader. Both flew into a blind rage and nearly killed the opponent, however they both realized before the final blow that killing really is a choice and each choose not to. Both Luke and Aang are told to follow a destiny but chose their own instead. I like how it goes down with Aang somewhat more, honestly, since the Avatar State actually DOES mind control people and thus Aang’s refusal to kill had to be strong enough to overpower the combined wills of all avatars that came before him.


Guess we are going to see a resurgence in Avatar.
<Nickelodeon is launching Avatar Studios, a new division to create original content spanning animated series and movies based on the world of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra, the network announced Wednesday during ViacomCBS' Investor Day presentation. Original creators and executive producers Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko will lead the studio as co-chief creative officers.
<The first project is already lined up: an animated theatrical film set to begin production this year.
Nick must have been seeing those Netflix numbers and realized what they were sitting on.

Hello, comrades. Yes, you, you fucking faggot. "We" (the party state) know, that you cook. Therefore we know that you have an incentive to post ITT, which is nothing else than leftyporg.org's attempt to share recipes.

Please don't be too much gay ITT, and stay on topic.

p.s.: the gunk and dirt are a feature, not a hindrance!

We start by putting like 2 different recipes, namely, "KAPUSKA" (Turkish cabbage recipe) and "SZÉKELY KÁPOSZTA" (Hungarian cabbage recipe) and mixing them into one.

sauerkraut (sour cabbage)
chopped onion (large)

Receipe looks delicious, but out of curiosity, why are you writing (((germs))) [anglo] and shit) like that? You know the three echo brackets around names is a device used by antisemites to indicate Jewishness?
I've seen it elsewhere on /leftypol/ as well.
Are you antisemitic, and mean something or someone is Jewish? Come on! say what you mean, spit it out.
Or do you really mean Anglos, and are using the brackets to show you think Anglos are the real problem, not Jews? Comprising even culinary endeavours.

Or is a word filter employed by the ever watchful mods, to change everything in three brackets to (((Anglo)))?

Here is a podcast which goes into the origin of the three brackets thing anyway (one of the hosts is a burger, the other one is an anglo.)

<The triple parentheses meme started out on the Daily Shoah, starting in one of their very early episodes. They have a reverb panel where they can – basically a sound board where they can make things echo in the audio and in real time, live. And so, whenever they would do a Jewish name or a name that sounds Jewish – like Silverstein – they would make it reverberate. And that was just kind of one of the jokes that they made.

our chef here is meme-ing the eternal anglo.
It's like the jewish thing, except for anglos and nobody should take it seriously.

our chef here is using it because the board has had a meme about how logical positivist which peaked in the anglo world has become a stumbling block to western marxists understanding of marx.

and while I'm here, there's also a meme that tries to frame the irish as "the real jews", which exemplifies how ridiculous the boogieman of the jews is. we don't have anything against the irish.


I see! Thanks for explaining :)

Lovecraft became extremely based and REDpilled later in his life. Kind of a shame he died so young and never got to see the defeat of fascism and all the greatachievements of socialism after WW2


The first pic cuts the most based part of the quote
>As for the Republicans – how can one regard seriously a frightened, greedy, nostalgic huddle of tradesmen and lucky idlers who shut their eyes to history and science, steel their emotions against decent human sympathy, cling to sordid and provincial ideals exalting sheer acquisitiveness and condoning artificial hardship for the non-materially-shrewd, dwell smugly and sentimentally in a distorted dream-cosmos of outmoded phrases and principles and attitudes based on the bygone agricultural-handicraft world, and revel in (consciously or unconsciously) mendacious assumptions (such as the notion that real liberty is synonymous with the single detail of unrestricted economic license or that a rational planning of resource-distribution would contravene some vague and mystical 'American heritage'…) utterly contrary to fact and without the slightest foundation in human experience? Intellectually, the Republican idea deserves the tolerance and respect one gives to the dead.
