Yesterday thanks to some anon I in SU thread I have rediscovered a childhood classic cartoon of mine, Malo Korrigan and the Space Trackers. I just watched the first two episodes and it really does live up to the nostalgia. Also I think I really wasn't mistaken that it was based as fuck: the very first episode has an underlying anti-corporate-imperialism theme, showing corporations muscling out any local competition, treating workers like shit and doing an imperialist genocide, and if I recall correctly, it only gets more based from here. Also the main casts ship has big red star painted on the side for gods sake.
However there is a problem. This show seems to be really obscure (like only 300 people looked for the English first episode obscure). The YouTube channel with English episodes has big gaps between episodes. Then there are some episodes posted on daily motion, but again, with holes. The only full series I found was in French, and I can't understand it, nor have the time to learn. So, can anyone give any tips on how to find the full English version?

Was thinking about Asterix the other day.

Most European representations of Romans in art (films etc) have them as the antagonists while the celts gauls etc are the uncivilised other.

Asterix seems to be one of the few representations where the Romans are the other.

Basically I want to buy a new phone. What's the best type to buy, one that won't spy on me and steal my information, something that's cheap, but has good quality. Something that isn't an android.I hear Huaweii is linked to China or something, so is that any good?

Paulo Friere's "Pedagogy of the Oppressed" is an excellent classic which is relevant, albiet indirectly. You can find it and most other books on Libgen.

I am a math tutor for middle school, high school and college students and have been for a couple years now. Most of my materials on teaching are specific to math, but I could give a lot of advice on teaching study skills / organization and on helping students with learning disabilities / challenges find ways to still do well in school.

What subject and grade level are you going to be teaching OP?

Is it just me or are most jobs in IT utter bullshit? I am not referring to "Bullshit Jobs", the book. It's something different.

Take say twitter. The mobile twitter front-end in particular. What is twitter? Chunks of text with occasional hyperlinks, pictures and videos. There are also a couple of forms, to register, to submit a tweet, to report stuff, etc.
So again, it needs text, pictures, links and forms. All of that is supported by HTML directly, i.e. it doesn't even require a single line of javascript to accomplish that.
But judging from the fact that on an old phone twitter may take half a minute or more to load or it may actually fail to load, or freeze up while loading, and taking in account how generally sluggish it is, it's obivous that it isn't plain html. In fact, there's probably a good dozen of megabytes of JS and CSS code, and that is after compression. The code that nobody every asked for. "Yeah I'd really like some people to spend their time writing thousands (?) of lines of code just to provide me with a site with the exact same functionality but with way poorer performance" - said no user ever. Bloated frontends should actually push users away it'd seem, and they probably do to some degree, that's why e.g. nitter and invidio.us exist.

And this doesn't only apply to twitter. The same with youtube (there exist even more alternative front-ends, hooktube and invidious and there probably are more). The same with the vast majority of sites on the web, actually.
There are countless frameworks like React or Angular, that achieve the same thing as can be achieved using regular HTML and some js, but they make websites slower AND require people to develop them AND people to learn them.
And by the way AFAIK nitter or invidious devs aren't paid anything for creating the sites, they might receive donations but that's it isn't it

So who profits from the labour of those who develop such sites? Why would the capitalists behind e.g. twitter be interested in
a) Paying more people
b) Making the site less attractive to users, thus potentially reducing their profits.

It sounds to me like you think, you only need to use HTML to make twitter, which is obviously not true. For twitter database is a must, also you need backend language for communicating with database, I mean stuff that is fetching certain data (for example all posts by certain user) and sending to display in views. This backend language cannot be HTML, it can be JS, or any other programming language. Thing is: database comunnication is widely known as bottleneck in many web applications, I mean its a thing that is causing web app to be slow. So if you say that JS front end rendering is bottleneck of twitter, then I am asking: How do you know that bottleneck is not caused by database communication which is not related to JS?

Because nitter loads way faster while it should actually have to spend more time fetching data from twitter than twitter itself.

Can we get an /x/ thread going for any and all weird shit, serious or not? Since this is probably a majority materialist board, skepticism is welcome as well.

As a kid I was really fascinated by stuff like the paranormal and ufology. Not much of a believer anymore but every now and then I'll read about someone's experience or see a photo or something which causes me to pause and think there might be more to the universe than we think.

Anyways, I just started playing Deus Ex and it got me back into that sort of mindset. Figured I'd make a thread and see if any anons were interested.

Even if we are talking in a materialistic sense. I always believe in the zoo hypothesis where our solar system is actually heavily monitored by other civilizations on our economic development. With all of them being post-scarity cybernetic communists.
That’s why even though posadism is a big meme I still think that any species that can explore space would be communist. Maybe capitalism is our greatest filter yet.

Good beginner tutorial for making a scarf. She talks a lot in some parts but everything is explained clearly.

That said, I started and stopped about 3-4 times. It's not easy pulling the same amount of yarn every single loop to make it even. I wasn't even paying attention to that in the beginning and it came out looking uneven.

This shit is not as easy as it looks.

>It's not easy pulling the same amount of yarn every single loop to make it even.

Yeah, that can be difficult at first. I made a similar scarf when I first started learning (though I used a much thinner yarn and needle size) and the loops were very uneven, especially in the beginning (there's also a big hole because I dropped the needles while I was knitting and I didn't know how to put the loops back on). By the end I got used to it and it looked a little better.

So don't worry if it doesn't look as nice as the one in the video, it's you first scarf after all. When you want to make a nicer looking project you can correct your mistakes as you go, but now you just need to get the hang of knitting. You can reuse the yarn later, so you could remake it once you get comfortable, don't worry about wasting yarn.

>This shit is not as easy as it looks.

At first yeah, but it gets much easier. As you do it more often you're gonna be able to knit while watching a movie or something, you won't even really need to look at it.

One more thing though, I don't think the style of knitting she's using is very good. There are two main types of knitting you'll see: English knitting (the one she's using) and continental or speed knitting. English knitting (I hope I'm not using the wrong name) is when you put the needle through a loop, wrap the yarn with your right hand and then pull it through the loop like you see in the video. Continental is a bit more complicated, but I think it's much more useful. I learned how to do it from these videos (and from grandma)

After you learn how to knit and purl you should spend some time to learn about the different types of fabrics you can make by combining knitting and purling. This video shows how to make the most basic stitches.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cD5Cgu-CCF0

It's important that you learn them because you'll use a combination of two or more in most projects. But don't worry they're not difficult (except for the seed stitch maybe). Other than that, have fun! (and be patient)
