Putting a mirror opposite a doorway or hall gives you a bad feeling because it's momentarily disconcerting to see someone coming towards you before you realise it's your own reflection.
Luck is dependent on mood, among other things - luck is just being able to recognise positive opportunities, and being in a negative mood will attune your perception more toward sources of danger.
Not sure if there's anything else in Feng Shui that has 'real' explanations other than this and the stuff about wind and sunlight. Probably worth going over it all to check, though. Even the stuff that has no strict materialist explanation likely ends up conforming to aesthetic/design principles.

So here's a torrent full of torrents for the 9/11 Data set. Includes lots of videos, documents, audio recordings, animations, diagrams, etc revolving around the 9/11 attacks. The torrent here is about 100mb of torrent files only. Downloading all the data from the included torrents will net you over 3 TB of data. Feel free to pick and choose.

Would hate to see this data lost forever. Included a list of the torrents here.

<The court heard that following Hussein's arrest, police found he had been communicating with others about demons and love potions.
in other words
<he had been talking to wankers on the internet

Two people killed, his own life down the pan, and no lottery win.
When did this Satanic human sacrifice crap start?
Probably with the ONA (Order of Nine Angles.)
But it's based on a misinterpretation of ancient ritual. There was, for an example, a "substitute king" ritual in Mesopotamia. Instead of sacrificing a king in the event of crops failing, disaster, to appease the gods a substitute king would be found. A prole would be ritually made into a king, reign for a year or so, then killed. (There was one instance of a lucky gardener being made into the king, by freak change everything then improved and he was left to reign not killed. )
But this isn't really a Satanic pact. More like ritual scapegoating.

The old adage still holds.
Read a book.
It's nice to chat on the internet sometimes but take it with a pinch of salt. Do your own research.

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

I'm not sure how the fuck to introduce someone to Josh, but here's some classics, condensed and cut to be more tolerable, and a couple videos from other creators on Josh giving more of an overview

I am literally autistic as admitted earlier yes, but I don't think that has anything in particular to do with it, Cobes isn't one of my special interests or anything like that, I'm not fixated on him or even follow him consistently

Autistic people tend to spend a lot of time online for a variety of reasons, we're definitely overrepresented on image boards for example,and you have to be pretty online to ever find out about most lolcows in the first place

Let's discuss asceticism.I am learning to embrace miserabilism ,obscurity,lumpen-ness (however i stay far away from obscenity)
i was once,online,said to have CRAWLED out of a hole. I take revel and delight in that,and im honestly thinknig of digging a hole to live in in my backyard. My diet would be potatoes,grown in my own garden,and rain water/dew.
my cloth would be a pant made of cheap fabric by myself,and my sleep,limited.

I was once really into asceticism, or more like stoicism and ancient monasticism. But I came to realization, which was already theoretically obvious to me from the start, that this is just a giant cope for being politically impotent, for the world being shit. The self in this case functions as a safe space into which you retreat from the dystopia in which you actually live.
So instead I became a weight-lifting alcoholic shitposter.

Because of a September meme about not fapping (essentially the No Nut November of Latin American, though I'll partake in NNN too) its been the longest since I've not masturbated (21 days). Now for regular situations I limit myself to jerking off at most 4 times a week, though I've found that even with quarantine it's not been that difficult. Have any of you gone a long time without jacking off? How did it affect you?

I've tried and there was no effect, neither on psyche/motivation/etc nor on pleasure when jerking off for the first time after.
Though I find that jerking off every two days is optimal pleasure-wise. If less than that I'm not maximally horny yet. And if more than that I'm already gettng used to not jerking off and the urge isn't so strong anymore.

Why doesn't anybody live in places like hashima island or western american gold towns? It seems like a waste of pre-fabricated infrastructure, doesn't it?
Would having a dedicated supply chain such as a food distribution center on its own work to incentivize colonist introduction to a place like hashima, or would more be necessary to utilize such spaces for human development?
Also, does anybody else think living in abandoned buildings would be kinda awesome?

The average person will only stick around where they can make a living. You might be able to have a few people who have the means to survive out there regardless do it but for most people so long as industry and commerce doesn't go there they will not go there. This would be potentially less of a concern in a socialist society though.

Theres also the fact that these places will have structural issues and be lacking most of the creature comforts that people are used to like clean potable running water and electricity.

I had to just vent this somewhere. Spoilers below of course.

Overall this is a good movie, I think it did what it set out to do quite well, but it is basically a reactionary and insular view of existential dread and depression through aging.

The director is actually very forthcoming about what the film is "really" about, so there isn't much interpretation except death of the author alternate versions of what the movie was about. Kaufman said the movie is mostly the fantasies of the janitor, who is kind of trying to escape his regret and depression by imagining a better life. But in the process, he is basically so depressed and broken that he can't even achieve that. Kaufman kind of suggests he is interested in a wider notion that it can't be achieved at all, but within the movie it is specifically the janitor who can't fantasize. His own fantasy girlfriend kind of looks down on him, isn't totally interested in him, wants to leave him. He can't decide what her name is, how they met, what her career is. He keeps changing his mind about what happens on the night that they go meet his parents. He even inserts himself into his own fantasy as a creep, when the girl and the janitor's younger self kiss in the car and suddenly the younger self notices the janitor peering at them and rages that there is a pervert watching them. Ultimately the movie ends with the janitor killing himself by getting in his car during the blizzard and not turning it on.

So maybe it is obvious why this movie feels like it has a very liberal or even reactionary message, but I'll spell it out anyways. The director, Kaufman, is kind of a pretentious guy. I like a lot of his movies, but he is very concerned with existential crises and memory and identity and stuff. He is a good filmmaker, but I want to highlight how his focus is kind of idealist. I think he has very metaphysical notions of what drives human beings to behave and think the way they do, so to him this movie isn't about a depressed janitor so much as about the human condition. However, the movie is literally about a depressed janitor. Not only that, but the movie has several key lines in it that feel like they almost directly confront and endorse the concrete form the movie takes.

Basically, the movie explores this guy's regret and depression by kind of suggesting that there is no resolution to it, it is just a part of the human condition to have regrets and fear aging. The viewer just watchPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

What the maggot-infested pig hallucination says is not meant to be taken as the film's own position. It might as well be taken as the janitor's cynical self-hatred, saying it for the sake of hurting himself more. Or maybe it's a cope.
IMO the whole film is clearly a collage of conflicting thoughts and emotions that the janitor can't control, and it's impossible to single one of them as the explanation for the rest. Maybe the point of the film is that we're inescapably pathetic, fake and delusional, which is also Kaufman's shtick in his other films it seems.
If that's really the case then the film's point is very weak indeed. At best the film is an existential amusement park ride. Existentialism for the sake of dread, because that's what existentialists enjoy more than anything else.

YMS just did a summary on this movie
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fv9Zv-rpWzs
gotta say from what i've seen, looks like people are right and the pigs and things are his own self hatred, not so much an endorsement of the movie itself. That said, seems like a movie that's very individualistic and about self-reflection. Even under socialism, some people are just going to end up feeling subjectively unfulfilled and linger on 'what ifs'
So it doesn't seem so bad to me in regard to capitalist ideology

I've been getting more interested in gardening, and I was very disappointed to learn that most of the garden hoses have lead in them or other toxic chemicals that leach into the water, making it unsafe to drink. While searching for a perfectly safe garden hose, (which are nearly impossible to find), I discovered a non-profit website that has a lot of warnings on toxic chemicals in common consumer products. Do inform yourself so you can better protect yourself from hidden sources of pollution.
