Tired of cyberpunk and dystopian culture in general, post ITT worlds you would want to live in or not too bad depictions of leftist societies.

I noticed that issue in books. People are immortal and they can modify their bodies and minds to become as strong and intelligent as their technology allows, maybe even evolve into a Mind, but most choose to end their lives after around 500 years, because they get bored. And this problem also extends to AI, who also choose to end their existances after a few millenia at most, because they experienced all that was to experience. In the last book we get to see the longest living being in the culture, and it isn't an AI, but a man who hasn't transformed into some super being, but instead transforms himself into different alien lifeforms and lives the way they do, at a slow pace, before going to the next alien civilization and redoing the process.

It's a rather pessimistic series when it comes to the purpose of life. Not even god like beings like the Minds seem to find fullfilement in this universe so they eventually just off themselves.

I'm reading Greg Egan's "Clockwork Rocket" from the "Orthogonal" trilogy right now. I'm not sure if it fits the thread, as I wouldn't want to live in the book's world (even less so I was to be a woman there), but that's not because of any dystopia, it's just that it turns out that Minkowski's 3+1 spacetime is a nicer place to live than fully Euclidean four dimensions.

Honestly when reading the description of Greg Egan's stories I expected some stiff bullshit, but he's actually good. This is my first book by him and I didn't finish it yet, but I'd already recommend it to anyone who likes the idea of "hard SF in a bizarre alternate universe".

WHAT's the most important piece of furniture?
The thing you spend A THIRD of your LIFE on.
THE THING that will MURDER YOUR BACK if it's not GOOD.

We MUST establish a GENERAL THREAD in order to CONGLOMERATE INFORMATION pertaining to MATTRESSES in order to sift through the LIES and TRUTHS of BOURGEOIS MATTRESS COMPANIES.

We WILL NOT be mattress ENTHUSIASTS, but rather APPRECIATORS.
For the MATTRESS ENTHUSIAST of REDDIT does NOTHING but SIMP for BOURGEOIS MATTRESS COMPANIES, and they are all PRICE QUEENS.
WE APPRECIATE the ARTISTRY of the MATTRESS
WE APPRECIATE its QUALITY
WE APPRECIATE its VALUE
A LARGER TAG does not a BETTER MATTRESS MAKE
A MORE POPULAR COMPANY does not a BETTER MATTRESS MAKE
AFFORDABILITY and long-term DURABILITY & COMFORT are the most SUPREME VALUES which MATTRESS APPRECIATORS ought to ADHERE TO.

In my experience, novelty mattresses are overpriced and worse than normal mattrsses. BUT store bought mattresses are expensive as fuck. Mail in mattresses are less expensive, surprisingly. I used to sleep in an Ikea mattress and I had 0 problems with it.
I'm currently sleeping in a 10 year old mattress and I have 0 problems with it.

Very soft mattresses hurt my back, as well as very hard ones. Anything in the middle is good for me. I know this is vague. If you are hesitant to drop yourself on your mattress because it might feel bad because it is too hard, then it is too hard. If you have trouble crawling on top of it because it is too soft, then it is too soft.

>OVA
Seriously? What was it called?
>a huge improvement over the kind of novels marketed at teens in the eighties
True, but somewhat debateable. The quality rose with Star Wars EU and other stuff, but generally 80s paperbacks were more interesting than stuff from the 2010s.
>for example
?
>ost of the cartoons I remember were canadian, from the same company that made Totally Spies
Ah, that might be it. I mean Canada had some banger shows, but a lot of it was cheap trash because budget constraints. I still remember Kid vs Kat and other stuff like Totally Spies (pic related). Good times.

>Star and the Forces of Evil, Adventure Time

I'm going to be honest, those are both terrible shows, and while the latter is defended by fans to th death, Star & Marco have been lambasted for years at this point, as has LH and other cringe. The 000s had A LOT of good stuff, but because it wasn't exported well, you probably didn't see it, stuff like Ben 10, ATLA, Generator Rex, Kim Possible Danny Phantom, Rocko's Life, Recess and more. In the past 5 years I can't name a single childrens show that I would be comfortable letting kids see or bother with. It's much easier to turn on old TMNT and other shows and let them watch that instead.
>Americans got into anime very late and with bottom of the barrel tier shows.
That's true, but to be fair that was the most popular product world wide, along with a lot of other things

>These cases don't seem to me to apply in WH40k. If the Inquisition is a government body, are they the one who decide how much funds go to the army? Could they stop paying a part of the Imperial Guard should they disobey them? Because otherwise, I don't really see how this would work. If they rely solely on assassins to scare military leaders into obeying them, then the Imperial Guard could train their own counter-assassins and start a shadow war (which would be an intersting story).
The Imperium’s main governing body is the high lords of Terra, basically a conglomerate of capitalist monopolies which changes from time to time based on what monopoly is most profitable with a few reserved positions for traditional purposes. But there’s always:
>the mechanicus representing the tech sector like our contemporary Silicon Valley techbros
>the imperial cult representing the religious spiritual industry
>the imperial guard and navy which represents the military industrial complex
>the navigator guilds of the transportation industry
>the inquisition which is in all intends and purposes the CIA
>the arbites which is the prison and police industrial complex
>the astra telepathica which is the only means of interstellar telecommunications
>the administratum which is the paper pushers bureaucracy
>the assassins which is just the FBI but privatized
The imperium is more similar to the Empire of Japan ultra-corporatism than the US. It’s always in the state of war economy so it’s also seems to be planned heavy but still with Rogue Traders selling death-star-sized cargo in a weekly basis between solar systems.

You are thinking about it too abstractly

No, the inquisition couldn't go to war with the entire imperial guard to assert its authority, it doesn't need to, that's not how it as an organisation works, that would be a bit like the CIA trying to go to war with the entirity of the US military

The two organisations at the higher echelons co-operate more readily than the ad-hoc haphazard way individual inquisitors interact with Imperial guard army groups or regiments

The way the very top most levels of the imperial heircharcy actually work on a day to day level is deliberately left vague both because the setting really isn't about that, its about fucking shit up with big guns or at least it was for most of its life, and to grant individual writers flexibility

Everything in the imperium is a delicate bullshit balancing act by design to prevent any one part of it being able to rebel and take over, after the Space Marine legions split and dragged the imperium into civil war the last time

So the Galactic civil administration is completely divorced from the army despite providing it with supply and financing and the army is divorced from the navy despite relying on it to get from place to place and the navy has to go to the Adeptus Mechanicus for ships who are like a weird empire within an empire that don't really answer to anyone else even the inquisition but they need the rest of the imperium so they begrudingly build everyone else equipment and talk to the Merchant Navy who are related but seperate to the Military navy to get it distributed to the Army and the Navy based on contracts sent by the administratum that due to all the extra layers of deliberate obfuscation and the massive size of the imperium and the fact that the people that the contracts are for probably don't get any input into them are usually stupidly inaccurate

The Imperium basically has no central government on the galactic level, its individual planets/systems united under whatever their local govermental model happens to be with 5 or 6 big Intergalactic monolith organisations and a few hundred other smaller ones kind of loosely holding the whole thing together with no guiding administration overtop of them anymore

Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the Imperium of Man, and I will use it to it´s full extent to wipe your miserable ass of the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have know what unholy retribuition you little clever heresy was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue.

I can forgive Bong for not being as overtly radical as I'd like because the powers that be would absolutely make sure that he never gets funding for another film if he reveals his power level too much. I would guess that film producers in Seoul and Hollywood generally dislike the ideological message in his films but they're willing to tolerate it because his work is popular and it makes money.

Bong Joon Ho has an earlier film called "Memories of Murder" that I think is generally agreed to be a classic of Korean crime movies. It also provides some interesting insights into police brutality in South Korean and South Korean history, as it's set in the late 1980's during the political unrest that occurred during the end of the Fifth Republic

Its a rural hobby that requires you to either live on the edge of wilderness or have the means and time to travel to wilderness to engage in it

These economic/locational factors and cultural stigma mean that minority populations are under-represented in it

I've never actually met a hill walker or mountaineer that has give off rascist vibes though (but then I've met few non white mountaineers so I've not had much opportunity to see how others interacted with them, plenty of people that are rascist aren't blatantly so around others of their preffered type) , so if you're interested I'd most definitely recommend joining a club and getting started, only way to change the hobby in the direction you want is to engage in it
