Cooking at all is an achievement nowadays
Good on you OP


based thread cook anon


maybe in burgerland. eating in restaurants, ordering take-away/delivery is still prohibitively expensive in the rest of the world. I cook every day, lunch and dinner, because I can't afford to eat out every single day, for every meal. even frozen food and ready meals are expensive. ingredients are cheap. I even bake my own bread cause for the price of a loaf I can buy 4kg of flour. got my sourdough starter in the fridge and can have delicious, freshly-baked bread in no time. I grow my own chilies and make my own sauces so I don't need to buy ketchup.

This thread is making me think there's no adults left on this website…


>This thread is making me think there's no adults left on this website…
Yeah, you may be right.


I'm trying to not crush OP's feelings here dammit comrade

i fucking hate "za" being a term for weed. fuck the west coast.


File: 1668626888906.jpg (32.74 KB, 590x550, alchohol cat.jpg)

Weed and psychedelics don't do anything in low doses and moderate to high doses give me existential anxiety, like I straight up can't stop thinking about dying and not existing in 30-40 years. It's weird because otherwise I'm chill about it. Alcohol is the only thing that takes away the harsh edge of life and makes everything fuzzy and warm, but I can't get over how horrible it is for every part of the body: liver disease, distracting your immune system, bowel cancer, brain shrinkage, disrupting protein synthesis. I think min-maxing video games ruined my fucking brain; every beer I have is like "damn I coulda got a 3 plate bench by now if I didn't drink". My mind won't let me let go and just enjoy the experience of any mind altering substance, but being sober fucking sucks. Why did humans evolve to hate the default state of the brain so much?

I live in WA and have never heard this term, I thought "za" was east-coast slang for pizza.


>Why did humans evolve to hate the default state of the brain so much?
I hope you are using "evolve" to mean more than biology and include, or only mean, society.


Humans have been ingesting drugs for as long as we've been around, it's not just capitalism anon. Jews smoked weed inside the second temple and native americans smoked peyote.

Weird because they say shrooms do the opposite. They're using shrooms for terminal patients because it gives them peace of mind.

Dune discussion general.

Trials in Tainted Space by Fenoxo. It's a porny space exploration text game that has some interesting ideas but the sexual focus and basis kind of makes it go retarded at times.


kinda funny that he did that music video years ago with the dune reference and now he's going to be in the movie


>Technically speaking a calculator doing simple arithmetic is still doing thinking for you.
Yes, correct. They don't have calculators in the Dune universe. That's at least partially the role of the mentats.

I know that lots of computers are basically calculators, but (at least in Frank Herbert's original novels) the Butlerian Jihad was more of a philosophical restriction on computers based around the idea that humanity was becoming too intellectually dependent on them, and this dependence was preventing humanity from reaching its full potential. A potential realized in the likes of the mentats, navigators, and Bene Gesserit.

However, a lot of their technology is clearly computerized and it would have to be. I've always interpreted this to mean that they have some basic "dumb" computerization that neither has artificial intelligence of any kind nor performs any function that could be viewed as "thinking for humans".

So, for instance, the hunter-seeker is clearly a device that would require extensive computerization to function, but still requires a human pilot.

Also, there's a lot of spiritual and religious themes in the books, and one of the impressions I got was that the people of the Dune universe regard thought and consciousness as something sacred, and consequently not something to be given over to machines.

They were never even called computers in the books, just "thinking machines" implying that non-thinking machines were OK.

Uhh yeah, this. What do we think of it?

I think the cinematically it was really good, but it had a lot of historical inaccuracies.

>10 minutes in
>muh romance
does this get better


Getting heavy Aaron Sorkin vibes from the script


>nearly no politics involved
It's pretty fucking brazen to even make this about politics like in HBO's shlock. It's a tragic accident caused by technical failure and human error, imagine you make a movie about Fukushima to make a statement about the Japanese imperial court or something.

<Even Ukrainian media, such as Strana, a Russian-language Ukrainian outlet, said that the story was mostly made up.
I guess Ukrainians were still more or less sane in 2019. When did they completely lost the plot?


The positive void coefficient issues in the RBMK-1000 reactors which were the reason for the runaway meltdown in ChNPP's No.4 reactor were ignored and kept off of manuals for operators because they happened to be a side-effect of pushing the reactors to meet planning targets


they were well known in the scientific community, including the west

Thread for those who like to read and write including fanfiction. Share drafts, look for beta-readers, ask for writing advice, give recommendations and do all that other cool jazz. Just remember to not bully anyone else no matter how shit their taste might be.

Try it and see how it works for you
One trick to writing is simply to just sit down and do it so go find out

It's much of a muchness for me unless I specifically use mood music to set a tone
Talking off which Eugene has written several quite long books which seem to use his hot takes here as rough drafts for at least some sections of them

You could try that

Read a post on Ukraine general (green) and it gave me a thought for a story idea… only to realize that Metal Gear Solid took that idea already. Truly Kojima was ahead of his time.
>I've just had a thought, what if post-war, the Wagner Group starts recruiting all those battle-hardened war veterans with lots of experience and energy but nowhere to go. Let's say from multiple sources, former Russian military, disaffected Ukrainians, maybe even Assadist Syrians, and possibly extending to Iranians and then go off to conduct operations in Africa and Latin America against Uncle Sam and their vassals. Turning it into a global anti-imperialist (if very reactionary) force.
>One could even call them Soldiers Without Borders, or even a Global Liberation Army if one really wanted to go there.
<Yeah, this would never happen in real life. We've already got former British pilots helping train the Chinese air force getting arrested and extradited in Australia. I feel like China still hasn't solved the issue of having reliable PMC for their BRI ventures and interests in Eurasia, and I don't think any Western PMCs will step in.


So if leftypol wanted to write fanfiction where should it be posted ?

Anon I don't how else tell you this but when Kojima was writing the script for Metal Gear Solid, America was spending an inconceivable amount of money on government contractors so as to supplement its occupation of the Middle East. By the mid to late 2010s, most of the big western 'counterinsurgency' players who survived the downturn of the war economy had merged into Constellis Group.

Goddamn, and I had to find out from some random tweet too


Rip. He was my favorite batman


I think him being rich was just an afterthought to explain why he's able to afford all this tech gear he has and his batcave and is a reflection of the mindset of people in time he originated. This is why he doesnt use his money to help people directly through lobbying to change power. Sometimes it gets highlighted and other times downplayed or subverted. So i dont think it's inherent since there is different depictions of Batman.


The On Cinema cinematic universe is a hilarious satirical cycle/storyline about 2 extremely egoistic faux movie lovers in an exurban Inland Empire town clashing with each other and the various hijinks and mediocre attempts at producing media that result in between
You can follow it here https://www.oncinematimeline.com
It's genuinely a very deep metatextual satire of a weird kind of zeitgeist in the YouTube era

Tim Heidecker is big fish in small pond.
Gregg stays with Tim because he realizes Tim is a IRL fi noir character with all the pomp and circumstance.


The timeline website doesn’t include these but this first one takes place after season 7
