I think I preferred this series back in the older iteration that had Necrons and fun characterizations of Gork and Mork.


The Necrons never went away. Do you mean the 3rd edition terminator crons?
The entire fandom is cringe. The point being no factions are sympathetic. Despite what the Imperial fanboys tell you.

>"The Orks are the pinnacle of creation. For them, the great struggle is won. They have evolved a society which knows no stress or angst. Who are we to judge them? We Eldar who have failed, or the Humans, on the road to ruin in their turn. And why? Because we sought answers to questions that an Ork wouldn't even bother to ask! We see a culture that is strong and despise it as crude."

Sounds like a roman philosopher/priest pondering over why their emprie was collapsing.

>but also a massive racist and all-around elitist.
He was only like that under the care of his abusive aunts. When the money from his grandpa's estate dried up the same time the Great Depression hit he became more and more leftist over time with all the social elitist attitudes being channeled into a very Stalinist high culture appreciation. Him subsequently getting a large circle of supportive and loyal friends helped him get over the whole racism. Especially his wife who's an older jewish lady that took him to New York and fixed his mommy issues.
This then later led to him basically got kicked out of his aunts' house after an argument where he was pro FDR. By the end of his life he was pretty ashamed of his edgy right wing phase and only occasionally talk badly about blacks just to appease his inner cirlce of fans.
Long story short his racism is way overblown. Most of his work about the fear of the unknown is more closely tied with capitalist alienation than anything else.
Fun fact he even had a weeb period in which Lovecraft began to admired all things Chinese and Japanese as 'high culture".

I'm genuinely curious if people like this ever got into Pokemon/Yugioh cards or Warhammer as kids. At least you learned how to paint or play the game and became cynical of ever collecting anything ever again.

Anybody else in the bunker enjoy cars and motorsport?

Discuss anything motoring related here.

To start I'll say I've spent the last few days doing the brakes on my own car, including new calipers. Fucking hard work on an old POS, nothing comes apart easily.

Why an old Jeep though? Just the form or something else?


Yeah I do like the looks, I like that they're raw, small and utilitarian and that you can pull down the windshield to make them look completely flat and letting you drive wide open like a motorcycle without needing the gear.
If cars grew in the forest the jeep will be a wild car, like a wolf or a boar and all other cars will be domestic breeds.


Thanks algorith, my dosis of daily liberalism was running low

Why do people keep doing the Trabant dirty? It's probably one of the most based vehicles ever built. It's cute, it's easy to work on (comparatively), it's built like a tank. What more could you want in a car?

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.

Too lazy to replace the woodchips in my raised beds now that they've disintegrated, but letting it all go to weeds and doing chop and drop seems to work just as well. I just make sure to cut the weeds back before it shades anything out.
Dumb idea or what? It's effortless at least


File: 1655486724535.jpeg (61.8 KB, 1200x630, free real estate.jpeg)

Mulching is good and can be necessary to get some initial biomass, but yes chop and drop should be fine. You are returning the nutrients from those plants back to the soil. Some carbon is lost to decomposition, but it's less than what was absorbed from the air to make the plant grow. Allowing weeds to grow for a bit and then turning them into mulch is sill using mulch, it's just free now.

You should try to identify the species and do a little research on them, though, because some "weeds" are actually beneficial. One major example of this is dandelions, which fix calcium in the soil (rare quality) and have pretty deep roots that help with aeration and water absorption.


Based knowledge haver.

Comrades let's have a thread for martial arts, combat sports and self defense. Striking, grappling, all styles welcome (except fake ass shit). Let's talk about training, techniques, fights, fighters, etc. Here's a fun fact: One of the many achievements of the soviets was founding their own combat system, sambo, which proved to be extremely effective and is still widely practiced today. Also, Judo orange belt here (AMA if you want)

I don't understand why people are so surprised when military designed martial arts system often lack depth and quality.
these system were designed to quickly teach the basics of punching, grappling and bare bones hand-to-hand combat to 18 years olds who have never made a fist in their entire life, besides hand to hand combat isn't even a main concern in modern warfare, like it wasn't even a concern in evenMedieval warfare
from a 16th century Chinese Military text
>The last chapter of the Jixiao Xinshu, the Quanjing Jieyao Pian, covers the subject of unarmed combat. Qi Jiguang regarded unarmed fighting as being useless on the battlefield. However, he recognized its value as a form of basic training to strengthen his troops, improving their physical fitness and confidence.


>but did you get this from Patrick McCarthy?
Well I'll be…
Never heard of him before, I just sort of deduced it from the number of ways a limb can move, the ranges one engages in (strike, grapple, out), and the "heights" and angles of attack (head, torse, legs, and front, side/angle, back), etc.
Kinda cool to be validated by convergent "evolution" of ideas, I'll have to check this dude out.

And I just realised, the Chinese kung fu dude who focuses on it's practical use, this Patrick dude, and the savate dude are all:
a) Expats.
b) Based in Australia for decades.


The only military combat systems that also happen to be useful for unarmed combat (though not necessarily in a self-defense context) are those designed for unbalancing a heavily armored opponent, like jiujitsu. In jiujitsu's case, the original intention was to bring an opponent to the ground so they could then be easily killed with an edged weapon.


Medival armoured combat was pretty much the same.
Get them on the ground

Gonna start off with a recommendation to watch The King and the Mockingbird the 1980 version especially, absolutely comrade-pilled movie.

they both have the same kind of absurd humor



Why is western animation so low effort if it's not a box office release and even then it's CGI?


because it's mostly produced for kids and the adult ones are produced for teenagers and stoners.
South Park is unironically one of the most consistently well animated western toons and that is a sad thing.


If you mean for like TV stuff, it's because Western TV channels require personal connections and don't operate on a more skill-based level like say Japanese studios. Cinematic releases tend to be high quality with studios like Disney and Pixar which do care about skill and talent and are less favoritist.

I don't know the source of this but it's very dope.


Nice classic design.


I like the flag (second image). Basically a combination of the soviet flag with a stylised symbol uniquely for the British Isles.


Keep the unique double-sideness of Oregon's flag and combine Redesigns A and B.

Is ward worth reading at all?


The pacing and focus of the story is a 180 from Worm. It's far slower and fixates more on characters dealing with trauma and the aftermath of Worm than it being nonstop conflict. If that interests you then you'll get more enjoyment than others did from it.


I really like the audiobook version of Worm, finished it recently(even with its flaws, I like seeing it get better over time-):

I have a very strong aversion to most superhero stuff (there's stories and characters I definitely adore though throughout the years tho), and this hits a unique spot that I can definitely resonate with. I feel like the parahumans setting has much more potential than most works it shares a premise/genre with, and despite some of the flaws it has (need for editing, certain drags/confusing parts, etc.), it really stands out on its own. In terms of existing in the larger sphere of "capeshit", I'd go and say its one of the best creations in the entire premise, helped in a large part by the way the narrative presents itself. The protagonist and their interactions feel a lot more human than most heroes and villains in other stories, and the entire story takes on that lifelike element. The interludes (interlude 10x especially oh my lord) work really well, because they give a different perspective than the usual protagonist's narration, and can take crazy turns with that. It's also pretty cool that a lot of the main characters are young, but not in the usual youth that glamourizes high school life, quite the opposite in fact. As someone at a similar age to the characters by the end of the story, I can say they certainly feel and act similar enough to the way someone our age IRL would, especially if thrust in such a wacky superpowered premise and world like the one they're in. The sociopolitical part of the setting gives me somewhat similar vibes to Watchmen and early Spawn, especially with how the image of things presented by popular culture and media is incongruent with the reality that the characters actually live through. The criminality of many of the characters feels a lot more real in motivation, and the plot following "villains" as full-fledged characters is just a breath of fresh air. It sees the average "superhero" for how fucking deranged they'd actually be; it looks at what would happen if sociopaths, sadists, and emotionally stunted people got abilities that enabled them to act more on their tendencies, and its all so interesting. The use of powers is also a lot more grounded, and the way they're applied is certainly a lot more compelling than the average story, also in a weird way feeling almost shonPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


I really enjoyed it. It was exciting and most of the characters were well written. The last arc was really exciting and the ending was good (though the end isn't exactly the happiest), and Taylor has really good development throughout the story. It does have problems, the biggest of which is its awful pacing. Some fights took way to long despite having little impact in the story, and the timeskip was poorly done and doesn't allow for you to get to know lots of the characters. It also could have done with an editor. But all in all I think it brings a lot to the table and I highly recommend reading it.


but is it leftist?
