Anyone ever had one of these two wheeled things?
I had it as a kid and aside of some smooth turns the overall control is crap, you have to constantly swing your knees and ankles for it to move and it wouldnt even go uphill, it needs both feet on board all the time so tricks were also a no
It was interesting to learn though and it teaches you balance, and the funny falls were worth it

What do you think of the Solarpunk literary genre? I find it very interesting, not only because I find the aesthetics very attractive, but also because it is openly anti-capitalist and has a very strong ideological content.
But I would like to know what /leftypol/ thinks.

Do you find a Solarpunk society the ideal society?anarcho-communismAnarcho-Communism

See this is exactly what I've been saying; even Solarpunk's supposedly foundational fiction is retrofit. I having nothing against Le Guin and Robinson (big fan of the former), and there's nothing wrong with identifying your influences or precursors; but come on, man.
>>24647
No, Salvagepunk's big claim to fame has always been its desire to reintroduce considerations of class conflict to these post-apocalyptic environmentalist stories. I'm aware that some Solarpunk short stories apparently do this, but that's never been the emphasis.

Does this website have anything meaningful to say in terms of media analysis or are their tropes just invented by a couple of redditors that wanted to develope a niche project?

He's not filtering it as "reddit or not" he is just making an observation that TV tropes can be reddit-y

 No.24236

It can be a useful tool for writing and discovering things that have story elements that you can like. On the flipside, there is a tendency to believe that a story can be broken down into parts and can be categorized, and that these categorizations make something 'good' or not. People obsess over these story components rather than enjoying the story in and of itself.

Also, some of the userbase has a tendency to be obnoxious in this regard. Trying to label this behavior as REDDIT is an oversimplification.

Stories are not legos but many who use TVtropes have this tendency to look at stories and see these interchangeable parts. Or that 'writing a good story' is avoiding certain story elements. That and some used to think fictional story elements could be applied to real life back when the (embarrassing) forums were still a thing.

I just use the tropes' example pages to find obscure, old, and niche works I might not have heard of before. Wouldn't dream of referring to it for actual literary criticism.

A good source is youtube and some small reddit communities that aren't flooded by liberals and idiots. Terrible Writing Advice is a kinda sarcastic youtube channel that does all sorts of writing advice in a fun and understandable manner, so you can take a look at that. There's more ITT about these kinds of things.

Perhaps it has become your goal to be more charismatic, uninhibited and sociable.

Let's have a thread where we ask questions and give advice to improve exactly that.

So… How can a society in the future (presumably socialist/communist) help socially stunted or inept people? I know its meaningless to dwell on plans so far way in the future, but I'm curious.

By being an actual society. Capitalist countries are just country sized workplaces. Nobody is your friend, everyone is a coworker fighting you for the same promotion. Socially inept people do much better in traditional societies or more harmonious social groups like churches and etc. Socially inept people are going to get torn up more the more hostile the environment, so really more socialism = less problems with people with "bad social skills." Frankly in hostile societies "good social skills" just means being more dominant and tearing everyone else down before they do it to you.

Nah, it's pretty much the same. The only hard part is getting it to start. Its harder to start a fire when it's cold. If you have lighter fluid, then there is no difference. It's just more uncomfortable.

It's the new frontier in the makerspace.

hacking and modding…………clothes.

A new jacket with tech fabrics and active ventilation (zips that can open to allow moisture to escape) are over $200. shit works though. need that functionality.

A cheap ninjastyle cycling jacket that fits real well and looks fine is $30, available almost anywhere. It's not at all breathable tho, like wearing a sauna suit after a few minutes activity.

So I brought it to a home-business, an alteration service that added armpit zips and two additional mountaineer style vertical ventilation zips on the front, features that usually only appear together on jackets over $300.

Cost of alterations were 35 dollars, attention to detail was good.

Shit works really well.

Techwear is all about spending literal thousands of dollars on clothes you will only wear in the city where it will mostly be sunny and warm.
