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

But tbf the DDR nad USSR did a lot of doping on their athletes


>DDR nad USSR did a lot of doping on their athletes
Not this bull again. This is Cold War propaganda bullshit, The East Bloc used the same kinds of drugs as the West, heck Norway had several of its Athletes permitted to compete even as Soviet athletes got penalized for using the SAME drug. Moreover outside of steroids, most "doping" is not used in competition, but in training as a supplement to the training regimen to maximize the effectiveness, it's not the same as roiding out and riding on that alone, it's not different to a specific diet.


>Not this bull again. This is Cold War propaganda bullshit
Thanks I was waiting for someone to debunk it

kek sauce?


It's something that came up during the prior Olympics, during the "ban Russia from participating under their flag" debacle, it's kind of an obscure fact and mainstream media has carefully trying to ignore this, most of the articles that had this info have since disappeared, and link related is one of the few I managed to locate.


I find it kinda funny how apathetic I and in fact most of the planet has become to the Olympics TBH. Social Spectacle has become repetitive and lacking any of the novelty that originally made the Olympics interesting even a decade ago, compared to today.

On a related note, how furries banded onto Olympic art depicting 'Stralian animals: https://archive.ph/04TJI a tradition from at least the days of the Animalympics.
video kinda related but for Brazil, ironically the jaguar used in the Brazil Olympic torch relay ceremony was shot to death after it escaped its leash and tried to attack a soldier, a real tragedy, and irony given the mascot of that Olympics had been Ginga the Jaguar.

Cobra Kai is a great fucking show. I can't stress this enough. Even if you haven't seen the Karate Kid in a while check this shit out. It's on Netflix now and actually has some pretty underlying class-pilled themes to it. It accurately shows the living standards and struggles of several people. The rich characters are often portrayed as self-righteous and frivolous (Daniel) while working-class characters like Johnny, Miguel, and Kreese are explored in depth. Definitely recommend this show. Lets discuss here

What's your personality type? INFP gang represent. Also daily reminder that MBTI and even Jungian cognitive functions are not a concrete analysis of how people behave, it's only a general prediction of how people behave over a period of time when faced with various situations.

You know what's really funny about MBTI if Jung were still alive he would probably unalive himself for what Jungian Typology had become. Dude had never intended his theories to be another way for society to trap them in oversimplified, stereotypical roles (I mean he was a bit sexist but that's another discussion for another day). He made up this entire theory with the understanding that it's not falsifiable and it should only be used as a tool to help patients in his therapy sessions to help frame their experiences.

For example, you feel trapped by a persona you feel you must adhere to because you feel everyone will hate you if you don't. However, you get extremely angry when others say what they want and act however they want. You do everything in your power to keep them in line because their unpredictability is untasteful. Untasteful for who? Why is it that when you become angry and control other people to the point of driving them away it's good but when others are acting in a diiferent but harmless manner it's bad? Who are you really angry at? You seem to fit under the archetype of extroverted feeling, let's explore the light and shadow concepts existing in this scenario.

That's it, nothing more. Everything is just capitalist nonsense that was expanded upon two sisters' work who also admitted that their indicator's usage should be kept on a limited basis. Capitalism took a tool that could have been to help people realize the spooks society and capitalism feed them as well as the lies they tell themselves which harms the people around them as another way to abstract the relationships we have with one another. It's far more easier to call someone a dumb ESFP who doesn't understand you than realize that that person is just a projection of what you might become if didn't repress your personality to sell yourself to porky.

I don't expect people to suddenly change their whole perspective on MBTI but I think it's wrong to dismiss it for reasons the originator never even promised he would achieve.


Anyone else feel slightly embarrassed over taking MBTI too seriously in the past?


not at all
I have none of the shame I should be having


What about you? Also what type are you?


good point
it is kind of just a weird self inflicted caste system in a way or like some mental illness identity but whatever I get the sense anyways that it is helpful for thinking about the similarities and differences of people, in a package stimulating and memeish enough to not roll right off my polished smooth and ADD addled internet receptacle organ

A thread to talk in a less judging environment and give and recieve life and mental health advice from a class conscious perspective. You can talk about whatever is on your mind, that is a big part of therapy itself.
Please be kind and polite to other anons. Trolling is pretty much off limits for /hobby/ I think and there are plenty of other threads to do so.
I think as class conscious people that can discuss the fuckery of capitalism we have a unique perspective on why a person is suffering psychologically and might have some maladaptive patterns. And through solidarity we can help heal each other.

Weed, it's too expensive and when I do have it I smoke every day, I can hold off and say no to things like alcohol or psychs. Thank god I never picked up cocaine, benzos, or opiates.


Weed famously causes no physiological dependence.
>How do I process my emotions and also give myself new values?
I dont't know, by struggling?
The only emotions I know are anger and hunger (is that an emotion?).


Physioogical depndence no, psychological dependence absolutely.


do you have somewhere you like to go or music you like to listen to in order to reflect calmly/peacefully?


yeah weed can be addictive and worsen certain mental health and lifestyle problems with some people and with unhealthy use


Rightoids criticize brutalism for being soulless, but worship the aesthetic of bioshock's rapture. What if we incorporated art deco in commieblocks?

Commieblocks are based the way they are. Literally all you need to do is put on a paintjob of pastel colours and they look better than most American yuppie neigbourhoods.
t. School was located in a half original, half repainted commieblock part of town


>all you need to do is put on a paintjob of pastel colours

a nice shade of cream
>What if we incorporated art deco in commieblocks?
you could take something like this (Hermes building in London, I was rollin past yesterday, ubering, waiting for a ping on the app ).
If it was a commieblock,the point would be to house as many people as possible.
So it'd be better to stack another block or two on top on the building vid - related as well. It's not going to make much difference if it looks brutalist,like a normal tower block, or more throwback numinous deco Egyptian pylon/Sumerian ziggurat. Cos I'm guessing The limiting factor is going to be stress on the iron girders/concrete it's built with. Architectural anons pls correct me if I'm wrong. Plus if it's double or triple the height it's going to look more monumental.

>>22513 (me)
Still out on t'road
What about this one, /siberia/ anons? It's another residential block in the same area of London (Chelsea). sure I saw a superhunny coming out this building once in a latex bra. or maybe I just dreamt it
You could stack another layer the same height on top, without it spoiling the proportion. It seems pretty much perfectly proportioned as it is.
There's a Morning Star (Britain's daily communist paper) line that art deco is bourgeois, whereas brutalism is for the proletariat. But it's just an aesthetic, and a technical question as to how you build it. It's not a political question.In the future it'd just be a matter of what people want. No surplus value expropriated from you. You get labour vouchers, and what you don't get labour vouchers for, you vote for for in terms of communal housing and infrastructure. So if people vote for it they get it.


The issue is taking one style and applying it everywhere, style should be conscientious of the local environment and cultures

Yea, it depends in a city what the local environment and culture is. Ofc the situation is now, you don't want areas of great people and history and authenticity spoilt by "redevelopment" into the whimsy tourist theme park experience (like seems to happening with Soho in London, for example. )
But housing for regular people in the future, if you could live in something like pic related… Go out on the roof on a hazy night! It's be like you've get to live in Gotham.

The Measurin' Tape Wars are Coming!

Which one is best?
For a domestic all around usage?

If I wanted to check my waist and then use the same tape to build a cabinet or move in some furniture and check the area length beforehand, which one is better

Only one can be bought (Don't ask why)


The metal tape (forgot the proper name) will be less of a hassle when doing handicraft and can be used to 'measure your waist' but I will be awkward.





I googled and they say that the metal strip will break


*if you bend it too much to wrap around your waist


Maybe if you fold it but not curve it


Do you think cats can pass the mirror test? My cats seem self aware, but aren't interested in mirrors. They also have zero understanding of computer screens, and keep crawling behind speakers looking for the source when you play recorded cat meows, no matter how many times you do it.

I really wish I could communicate enough with animals to explain how technology works sometimes, or how certain things are dangerous to them. It would be more fun if I could teach cats about light switches, or if we could design VR video headsets with games that cats would like to play.

The modern Chihuaha and tht Native American dog breed have about as much to do with one another as modern bulldogs and bulldogs of the 1600s


That sucks. RIP.

When my puddy-tat was a kitten it was scared of mirror and would arch it's back and prance around but once it became an adult it didn't care one bit.

And which of these jpgs books have you read, partially at least?


my point is that there's no actual fucking textbook you vocational-brained dumbass, especially for critical theory, which is an outgrowth of "continental philosophy"
also i've only read the grundrisse


honestly why?

do you find it fun? do they even hire such people? where?


>"continental philosophy"
what is that
