You mean /roulette/ K or the current /hobby/ thread?


Post this on AKM because it's military related also there is a military vehicle thread on AKM


This thread has existed since before Bunkerchan became a .net service, let alone before it becoming leftypol.org, /tech/ needs to do some coding shit to transfer the thread.

A thread dedicated to the discussion of collecting stamps, coins, weapons, military awards, etcDo not buy items from sellers on eBay if they do not have an excellent reputation. On the web-site you can find copies of coins and badges that cost $10 each but people sell them as originals, so you are not safe even when buying cheap items. There are also web 1.0 style forums for professional collectors and dealers, like this onehttps://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/forums/they are quite good and many people on them have decades of experience in collecting. These forums function like auctions and they are also very useful if you want to find out for free if your jewelry/coin/whatever is fake, or just take a look at people's collections.

Spring is approaching. Plan on growing anything, /hobby/?
Me and a friend are looking to plant rapeseed and hemp to try and make biodiesel. Should be interesting.


Yeh. I am growing wheatgrass for my kitty and mushrooms once I get some more money. How do you make biodiesal? Sounds awesome. Can you make enough to run a vehicle with just those crops?


mushrooms? like how champignon and shiitake are grown at scale? in like sawdust logs?
>How do you make biodiesal? Sounds awesome. Can you make enough to run a vehicle with just those crops?
sure, the real question is yield per ha. process is roughly this:
1. grow and harvest your oil crop of choice
2. press oil using a rapeseed press. they use water to do the actual pressing, very neat
3. dissolve an amount of NaOH (lye) in an alcohol. methanol is cheapest, ethanol is safer
4. mix the oil and NaOH+alcohol mixture in a cylinderconic tank with a tap on the bottom
5. keep the tank at around 50-60°C and stir
6. you will eventually see a thick transparent liquid collect at the bottom. this is glycerol. separate that out
7. once fully reacted, spray water from the top to get rid of any remaining alcohol and lye
8. separate out the final biodiesel
exact recipes are available online. this is a transesterification process where the glycerol backbone in the fat is replaced by the alcohol. NaOH is a catalyst. different alcohols and different oils produce fuels with different properties. they're all fatty acid esters however
you may need to mix this with regular diesel to improve its gelling point, or use different kinds of these biodiesels together. there's a bit of experimentation there

Recently been reading the AVP wiki cuz I've been rewatching the movies and looking at the game let's plays and the only listed Colonial Marine melee is a combat knife based on the American M9 bayonet, the appearance got me curious because it looked like an AKM bayonet. I go to wikipedia; lo and behold, "The M9 bayonet was designed and developed by Charles A. "Mickey" Finn at his R&D company, Qual-A-Tec.[1][2][3] It is a refined copy of the Russian AKM 6H3 bayonet.[4] He later produced it under the Phrobis III name, filling a military contract for 325,000 units in 1986."
But nah only de "dum gommies" copied "thuperior American technology"
And hell they copied an already outdated Soviet bayonet that had already been replaced in service in 1974, 10 years late. But it's not unusual, ironically until the late 80s the USSR had been ahead in all the innovative technologies that are now thought of as the norm of modern military tech.

Anyone into screen printing or making your own T-shirts? I kind of want to get into this

Your a faggot.


Cute gift, but lordy I hope they don't wear that shit outside.


I love this and it's hilarious but the position and size of the print doesn't look that great imo. I would have to see it on a person to get a better idea of how it looks tho. I would suggest making the front pic and the back the same ratio and size tho. And drop it down slightly on the shirt




I won't be surprised if it ends up in a thrift store, although they fucking loved it when I first gave it to them.
Yeah, this was my first time doing any type of iron-on transferring so it came out shit. If I had more shirts to practice with, I would've made sure that there weren't any visible steam markings like it is here.
Only with femboys

The Washington Football Team, formerly known as the Redskins, has officially became the Commanders.

Jokes about the burgundy and gold "Washington Commies" ensue.


Maybe it's me but it sounds like a team name from the XFL lol


College but it's going through an era of changes.

Going to take time to figure out everything but the change is much needed.

Stupid ass shit.



NFL is like fun to watch as entertainment, but my god it's so bogged down and the refs are fukkin' terrible.

Raging at your shitty team is also its own kind of fun, lol

Probably college is, but I don't watch admittedly.

In almost all science fiction stories energy shields are used as if it was regular armor, except that it's made out of energy instead of unpenetranium. I think that's lacking imagination and actual tactics would not use it like this. If you can project a wall made out of energy, why would you put it around your self, why not put it around your enemies. You get a two for one, their weapons and their movement could be blocked in one go.

If the slow blade penetrates the shield, shouldn't that restrict the user to slow movements or their feet would bounce off the ground?


I think Star Wars does it best, where its like an active field which dissipates energy (so automatically negates blaster's plasma fire and other kinds of lasers like lightsabers) and decelerates projectiles (making traditional guns less useful), but they are prohibitively expensive and power-consuming so they are mostly used for super-heavy vehicles or static defenses


Meh, that’s still the most boring use of it. It’s just an author fiat for no personal shield. Seeing how ships like the gigantic star destroyer crashed and exploded in the return of the Jedi even with shields, I would say a small droid ship with shields crashing into fleets would be effective.
I guess Dune is the only thing that took shield fighting into account. Then again, because of the fact that it’s basically impossible irl, writers had to imagine it to be comparable to physical armor but stronger.


My consumption of sci fi media is limited, but I do enjoy that Star Wars thought and addressed the paradox of energy fields repulsing everything while still needing movement to pass through terrain. I.e Droidekas, basically droid hamster balls, by accepting the paradox and incorporating it into their lore as a way of defeating them. Basically in a cartoon TV series, they spend a whole episode teaching monarchist loyalist “revolutionaries” how to defeat Droidekas. The logic is that the energy shields somehow repulse only rapid moving objects. However, one easily observed that the Droidekas move with their energy shields, like when rotating. Droidekas have been shown to have their energy shields move to envelop debris rather than push the debris away. Of course the concept that an energy shield can envelop something is sort of confusing and brings in other questions, but Star Wars, being a sci-fi fantasy, just said fuck it, and said that slow moving objects will “trick” the energy shield into being environment and be enveloped. So they train the revolutionaries to roll grenades at such a velocity that it does not bounce off the shield and stops right where the droid is inside the shield.


>Many weapons batteries against a single shield-generator battery is still a defeat, in a fight against greater numbers you still have to avoid their attacks to survive, and using the shield as a bubble trap reduces the number of opponents.
Energy shields in a scifi scenario set in a "conventional" war using mostly common soldiers, elite soldiers to a lesser degree and a few weapons of mass destruction presuppose, that energy consumption will place a hard limit on mobile equipment. In this scenario focusing artillery fire on a singular soldier might yield a tactical advantage, yet in most situation it would allow a faster advance of the remaining soldiers. Using shields as a bubble trap would either destroy them fast, contain opponents less effectively than it could have nullified their shots as armor (because of surface area), or require large machinery to operate.
Assuming these sort of shield to be effective would need a major twist in worldbuilding equal to hyperspace in (pre-TLJ) SW, when industry to produce them would be capable of much more. Suppose those shields were electromagnetic fields capable of diverting any particle up to a certain speed and large advancements were made by discovering alloys amplifying these fields range while preserving their magniture. They would more likely extend existing uses by protecting a larger range or protecting them with a higher magnitude. An unconventional but more or less viable use would be interfering with lesser fields lacking the new technology or lacking magnitude in general.
tl;dr using energy shields as a bubble trap would be like creating a smokescreen with zephyr particles
