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)

you claim that, but I can claim to be American cowboy gangbanber but it doesn't change my reality, I'd be lying just like you are


>So this would make me think this stuff has value for self-defence as well?
Well, i did say earlier that it does have some skills and traits that are useful. Physical fitness, ability to endure pain and fatigue, ability to judge the distance. Compared to ordinary person a fighter from competitive sports is at an obvious advantage. Also well built person just looks more threatening which is also useful given that one of the main jobs for bratva would be racketeering, taking money for "protection".

Still if you look at their history they never shy from weapons, including firearms, on some occasion even military grade ones, like grenades and greande launchers (military was in a sorry state after the crash of USSR to the point where you occasionally would find them just selling their stuff on the black market). Obviously they have had more than just sports experience.

So it wasn't necessarily martial artists they were looking for. Weightlifters were really popular. Many gang even set up their own gyms like infamous Luberets gang.

For a thugs being a former weightlifter would be no less or even more useful that being say a boxer.


Even in this video it's pretty clear that more than half of the time they pick people who are too preoccupied with whatever happens in their smartphones to notice a fucking bike literally riding behind them. So the best advice would be to pay attention to your surroundings. It's not that hard to detect a bike suddenly changing direction and riding towards you if you don't walk with your head up your ass or in the phone.


Fuck, Putin used to look like 'that'?! uwu

>There is such thing as too much free speech.
Lol back at you. Don't use your free speech if you don't want people directing their free speech at you.


>I disagree, and i think authors should only get concrit if they ask for it. It has always struck me as a pretty strange thing to do, to run up to a hobbyist writer and give them unsolicited criticism
How is that even a serious question? You sound like a boomer that just found out about the internet yesterday.

I guess you can upload it on your own website and not provide a comment section or contact info. Or you can look if any other sites you want to host it on can disable comments.


Idk if you will see this, Your post was 3 years ago peak pandemic. I decided to start writing again after years of giving it up. I've been dying for some good syfi. I love science fiction, I grew up in fucking nowhere and my grandma would always have the coolest gizmos and tech. She also watched stargate, Star trek, farscape, angel, pretty much was addicted to the early 90's sci-fi channel. She got me into computers and video games too. She was also a hick from a small town in Virginia. Says kreek, I've seen this women throw a rattle snake. Her compassion and love for her family and idealism get through. Also she's lends me money all the time.

Anyways I'm fucking around this idea for a story set in the near future of 2057. I'm still work shopping it and I'm using ChatGPT to help me write it. this isn't the real story this was me just fucking around with it to get a better idea of the characters I want to build.

I think that's a great idea! Updating the story's perspective to make it more relatable to a modern audience and incorporating elements of social media and internet culture would give the story a fresh and engaging feel. Having an AI partner, like a self-insert of me, could also provide interesting interactions and insights into the world of 2057. Let's give it a shot. I'll make some changes to the story to reflect your suggestions:

Year: 2057

What's up, everyone? It's your boy, Elijah, coming at you from the future! Currently, we're at the end of the three-year Second Corporate War. Crazy, right? But hey, life's wild like that. So, I'm vlogging my journey across the U.S. as it exists now, and who knows? Maybe you're watching this in the near future or like, way down the line, trying to piece together this insane time. If you're somehow tuning in from the past, well, let me give you some context.

Late 2020s and early 2030s were game-changers, no cap. OpenAI tech totally revamped the economy and politics. Small firms and peeps could handle their own graphics, legal, and logistics departments with barely any human labor. 3D printing went next level, and micro-manufacturing became the norm, meaning parts and tools could be made pretty much anywhere. Renewable energy sources almost made fossil fuels a thing of the past, especially with these dope hydrogen rods that could extract hydrogen from the Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


Seems pretty cool, though I don't really like the framing device lol, I advise you read the Kindred series cause it deals with a similar decayed future USA, and also maybe the game Norco. Keep up the good work though, I have lots of ideas but never write, alas


And it shows in both of their writing. Martin writes sprawling interconnected stories with a lot of plot threads he tries to keep together. King's writing borders on stream-of-consciousness and while the prose is pleasant, reading him is a lot like absent-mindedly chowing down on a huge bowl of popcorn.


Are any of you watching this? It's the premier international baseball tournament. /our guys/, the Cubans, won their group and will probably at least make the semifinals, even though many of their best players have defected.

It'll be interesting to see the Cuba vs USA game in Miami. I wonder if the older gusanos will protest the shit out of them or get drowned out by the younger gen who couldn't care less about some old political grudge.

Not a shocker, but there's a sizable protest outside the ballpark for the Cuba vs USA game.


Japan wins 3-2 against the United States in the WBC Finals.

In other news, Cuban bullpen pitcher Iván Prieto González managed to defect to the United States.


What do you mean defect?

I should ask have you hiked alone before? Is it hiking itself or just camping you are afraid of?


Im gonna try cross country skiing this year


Went bike camping the other day in Cascadia.
I fucking forgot my tent poles though lol. Had to sleep under the stars and luckily it did not rain, also got no bug bites somehow.


Trash bag inside pack.
Water resistant pack is good if you live somewhere high and dry, where it isn't going to rain continuously for more than a hour. But trash bag inside pack is lighter and works in all climates. You can also use a poncho and cover it that way. Many long distance hikers in the United States use a backpacking specific umbrella.


Spring is here comrades. What /out/ plans do y'all have this year?


why did movies in the late 90s/early to mid 2000s go nuts with the digital color degrading and make every movie look like it was dipped in a pool of orange vaseline?


California vibes.

ITT we discuss business strategy and help other anons escape wage slavery, build a business that subverts capitalism from within, and become ethical petty booj with a lefty perspective in mind.

This is for serious discussion only, keep focused on the topic and don't derail the thread.

Droppin a hot money minting cash cow- a lot of you anons with spare time on your hands can make bank by being a chad leftypol litigator troll.

A lot of companies will just settle for half or so whatever you sue them for in small claims. Its barely 200 or less to file and you can sue up to 4 times a year. If you sue 4 times for 10k each, you can have more savings than the average burger in a year. Some companies have arbitration/mediation clauses which are different from regular court (they are even easier).

All you have to do is gather or drum up 'evidence' which is basically just gathering all documents related to a transaction. For example if you're renting a place, plant some evidence of pests or other hazards and sue them for it after you get evidence the landlord did nothing. To be truly based sue your landlords, airBnB, banks, Google, any enemy of the left etc. For example I intend to arbitrate with aBnB for 10k after they didnt return some of my money.

If you wanna be a real chad, self study law and sue them in actual civil court and self represent for yourself to save money. They will shit themselves because hiring a lawyer costs a shit ton and will be eager to settle.

To get started go on your local courts websites and see what documents are available to file. Then file the motions, affadavits or whatever to build a case and sue the shit out of some capitalists. Report back here when you win.

If you win a judgment, freeze their bank accounts to collect whats owed to you.

If I ever end up broke, my plan is to do this full time.


very cool. thank you pepe lawyer


Am I imagining it or did we have a crypto thread? Also wasn't everyone shitting on crypto intensely after FTX? Why arent those voices saying a thing about it now? Anyhow it's having a slight moment and I wanna talk about it


GPT killed my side hustle now I have to suck dick for cash again fml :\


r u 4 real?
Maybe you could get more stable employment by being a life coach or listen to your clients. You could also make them suck your dick for cash y'know. You can only suck so many dicks.

Also know your worth. You're probably undercharging.

>The soybean, soy bean, or soya bean (Glycine max) is a species of legume native to East Asia, widely grown for its edible bean, which has numerous uses.
>Traditional unfermented food uses of soybeans include soy milk, from which tofu and tofu skin are made. Fermented soy foods include soy sauce, fermented bean paste, nattō, and tempeh. Fat-free (defatted) soybean meal is a significant and cheap source of protein for animal feeds and many packaged meals. For example, soybean products, such as textured vegetable protein (TVP), are ingredients in many meat and dairy substitutes.
>Soybeans contain significant amounts of phytic acid, dietary minerals and B vitamins. Soy vegetable oil, used in food and industrial applications, is another product of processing the soybean crop. Soybean is the most important protein source for feed farm animals (that in turn yields animal protein for human consumption).
Post recipes and other tidbits relating to soy. Did you eat soy today? Post about it in here! Everything related to maximizing one's intake of soy and promoting soy culture is on-topic.
Pic related is today's lunch, a veritable cornucopia of soy (soyucopia?) consisting of:
>plain tofu
>soy sauce
>fried soy mince
>soy schnitzel
>a bowl of edamame
and finally, for desert
naturally this feast was entirely vegan
finally, remember our motto here at /soy/:
<Where do you want to soy today?

youre probably allergic and your body is inflaming


The thought inflamed my dick


Thread reads like /pol/ seething, but whatever, soy products are pretty neat. Tofu is incredibly versatile. Western stores usually only have "firm tofu" which is not easy to work with unless you're doing stir fry.

Other tofu preparations are great to add to a lot of meals, even when they have meat. For example, you can make a nice meat soup broth with a ton of veggies and meat pieces, then add soy/tofu balls (the ones that you buy dry and have to hydrate to use) and the balls are like sponges that will soak up the broth. You can also use tofu as a texture. It also keeps way better than meat. Sometimes I'm running out of meat, but I have an emergency ration of tofu to increase the protein content of whatever I cook.

Also good for salads, for example. Its so versatile, honestly. If you're scared about girl hormones or whatever, then just buy estrogen blockers or testosterone, or better yet, actually read scientific studies on the matter and drop the idiocy.

Soy sauce, both light and dark are absolutely essential if you're a home cook and strive for easy, quick, impromptu, and delicious meals.

Soy milk is meh.

Edamames are nice. I like to put tajin (a Mexican powder candy) on it and maybe some soy sauce, then cook that shit for a bit. Maybe a lil drip of seasame oil too.

Chinese cuisine, which is largely not vegetarian, has tons and tons of tofu preparations and tofu presentations.


What exactly is the point of soymaxxing? Isn't it just some ridiculous way of just going normal vegan? Is soymaxxing supposed to be "extra healthy" than just regular vegan diet somehow?


>What exactly is the point of soymaxxing?
I would expect this to be self-explanatory. it is to maximize your intake of best legume

There has been rise in film makers lately who just think if the photographic aspect of their cinema is great that means great cinema. This is just wrong, dead wrong. Cinema is the most powerful mode of story telling and if you are not able to tell anything through this medium then you are just intellectually bankrupt. If I only wanted great photography, I could just browse collection of paintings and photographs. Why would I need to see a film? Capitalism is truly creating the most mediocre cancer in history when it comes to Art and Literature.

also lol I somehow think this kanye movie won't get made now

seriously though these movies all sound like fucking parodies lmao, something about the way the summary is written is like how you would format a joke tweet about a shitty movie idea


>if writers and so writing were more recognized, we would have less shitty screenplays.
>Hollywood people just have terrible tastes. They're all pseuds of the highest order.
You can trace the decline of writing quality back to the big writers' strike. They got rid of everyone who knew what they were doing.


Said it better than I could.


Movies are a narrative medium
Even as far the visuals go, they are only ever sequenced to help form a narrative
If you can't tell the inherent difference between a frame of a movie and the movie itself, then you don't understand

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.

I've grown shit on literally cracks in the pavement
What crops have you grown?


Everything, from potatoes and cabbage to cucumbers and tomatoes, to berries and nuts. I grow food to eat, dumbfuck. I grew up in a family where we had to grow our food or starve and for the last 7 years i have my own garden to fulfill like 70% of what i need in food another 25% comes from other villagers and remaining 5% from stores (stuff like salt and tea).

Good luck growing garlic on shit, but at least use your own, that way on the off chance you don't kill it with too much nitrogen, you at least not gonna acquire some exciting guests in your guts.

>I've grown shit on literally cracks in the pavement

ngl i kinda like body odor as a smell. not sexually or anything but its kinda just a reassuring smell for the most part. i wish more people were accepting of it.

Do you have any statistics to back that up?


You really only need to shower like once every two or three days anyway. It's well documented. Only exception is if you have been sweating or live in a humid climate.
