I need to lose 15 pounds immediately (still a 'normal' bwi but i look fat in the face) and find caloric restriction throughout the day is torture. So i've been doing IF with some light bodyweight (pullups, pushups etc) 3x a week, maybe have lost 1/2 a lb (maybe, hard to tell with day to day weight fluctuation) despite eating around a 800-1000 deficit. Kinda bummed so today I'm not eating for 36 hours. Will this wreck my metabolism in the long term?


no, don't be a faggot. human body was meant for fasting & low caloric intake, otherwise we wouldn't retain fat. just literally eat less why is this so hard to do.
restrict yourself to one meal a day or eat every other day and you'll lose the weight.


why do redditors always talk shit about deadlifts? is there any actual way you are going to hurt your back if you aren’t doing your one rep max, because I feel that’s bullshit.

Im just kidding ive never even seen it before
I do have a legitimate guilty pleasure in the form of trance music though. Like the upbeat gay shit


More of an innocent pleasure than a guilty pleasure! Not really pro- or anti- communist. More like pure escapism.
It's like an old fashioned radio series, with a 1940s noir feel but set in a post-nuclear war future .
I've been listening on the A-bomb Radio app, but it's also on YouTube.
I listened to about 5 hours so far. It's weirdly addictive.

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)

Asking this on an imageboard is a crapshoot since we're generally all loser nerds who don't actually do anything, but honestly for basic hand to hand self defence what is better: BJJ or boxing? I'm 5'8 and 180~lbs with a 1010lb powerlifting total if that makes any difference.

Besides radicalizing me into a red fascist the last year has convinced me that political violence might become more and more of a thing in the US and being a minority I'm realizing not know how to fuck someone up is putting me at risk. Of course owning and training with a gun is ideal (especially since Proud Soys and other wignats and rightoids never ever ever fight 1v1) but I'm wary of that due to mental health issues and living in a cucked state, so I'm left with learning a martial art.

Boxing seems like something I would actually want to get good at, but I am relatively small in stature compared to most rightoids so I'm not sure getting into a fist fight with people taller amd heavier than me is a good idea. The plus here is that I can stay standing, which is what scares me away from BJJ. BJJ seems like it's better for someone like me who looks unassuming (I'm a manlet and despite lifting I do not look strong) since most people might try to grab me and being physically strong seems like it would put me at a huge advantage against taller opponents here

wat do


Boxing is better on a street situation cause as the asian martial arts teach us:" if you get on the ground , you die "


Striking is always going to be better in a self-defense situation, but it should be noted that they are both highly sport-oriented combat systems. At least with boxing you can train yourself in an "outside fighter" style that is more oriented towards defense… against other boxers anyway.


We really should divide this thread.
There should be
1. one martial arts thread that might as well include weapons and shooting techniques
2. one combat sports thread that might as well include fitness and nutrition

Just emphasizing that the difference between activities like kali and krav maga on one hand and kickboxing and submission wrestling on the other are great.


>BJJ or boxing?

Both are pretty bad, but i guess boxing is somewhat better because at least you don't learn to lie down in a fight.

If you are really a strong guy, like you say you are, i do suggest learning some throws. Sambo or judo would be my recommendation. A man thrown on a pavement rarely gets up to continue a fight. Or at all.

>why would the fire nation develop faster than any other nation, from a materialist standpoint?
Power, like in the physical sense. They can create fire out of thin air, which means they are able to heat things up more effectively. It's the same kind of benefit as having oil. Other benders can only move things around. Firebenders can create energy. They're insanely OP in that respect, even though fire has other limitations that make up for it in most (small scale contexts). Fire can't be used to build anything, and it just doesn't work underwater (unlike airbending which can make bubbles) or if it's too cold for the bender. It's also dangerous in ways that the others aren't. IMO the show did a great job making the elements balanced in a general sense but also giving them massive strengths and weaknesses that shape the whole society.

>water-bending could easily be used to create powerful water turbines

Problem is this is both unintuitive and inefficient. You need people to continuously power these turbines, when in reality you only set up such a thing at a natural source of water. They might be able to reshape rivers to this end, but just having people run the turbines is the same kind of thing as generating power by people riding bicycles. Also for it to scale at all you need to discover electricity.
>and earthbending has the ability to track and unearth great quantities of ore and coal
Only Toph is shown at first to have the tremorsense abilities, although earthbending obviously makes mining easier. Just because you have the resources doesn't mean you have the technology to work them, though. Prior to the development of ironworking, iron was not seen as particularly useful. It's too hard to work without sufficient heat, and usually full of impurities. Without the ability to metalbend, it's probably just not worth the effort for an earthbending culture to figure out advanced metallurgy since they can just send earthbenders into combat, and their "weapon" is just sitting around everywhere. It's sort of like mining asteroids to us. Sure it's possible in theory and it would be very useful, but the difficulty of it compared to the much easier alternatives means there's little incentive to try it.

I explained why there is focus on killing by Aang in my posts about the Lion Turtle Deus Ex Machina; They specifically focus on his dilemma of violating his principles of pacifism, and then just give him the ability to make a choice with an asspulled new ability, which isn't something uncommon, but still feels like a bit of a cop-out. This is in the same tier as Goku going Super Saiyan against Frieza, except unlike Energy Bending, that was talked about at length over the Namek Arc, while Energy Bending isn't even mentioned until the final couple episodes, thus we get a feeling of a copout >>2756 >>2810 >>2816 >>2817 >>2822

Additionally, his Avatar State against Ozai was an accidental unlock. A literal plot-device rock hit him in his lightning scar… why didn't toph's massage do that when she pounded his entire back with rocks? Plot. Why was the rock specifically in that spot to hit him? Plot. It's a bullshit move for an otherwise awesome scene.

Finally there is a saying; Pacifism is a coward patting themselves on the back.
It's one thing to be against violence or harm and thus seeking other methods, that is being a gentle soul. But outright refusing to fight seriously and be ready to kill because you're against it and refuse to budge is pathetic negligence. Making the hard decisions and dealing with them is the consequence of having power and leadership, and if you don't you are jeopardizing the lives of everyone behind you.


here is a decent video about the ending of avatar


I guess we might see a resurgence of Avatar stuff with the netflix release of the series


> Aang was never going to do it, so him pulling back doesn't sUbVeRt ExPeCTaTiOnS and narratively it's kind of blue-balling or something.
How so?
I actually like the way they did Aang’s ultimate refusal to kill Ozai, it reminded me of Luke’s refusal to kill Vader. Both flew into a blind rage and nearly killed the opponent, however they both realized before the final blow that killing really is a choice and each choose not to. Both Luke and Aang are told to follow a destiny but chose their own instead. I like how it goes down with Aang somewhat more, honestly, since the Avatar State actually DOES mind control people and thus Aang’s refusal to kill had to be strong enough to overpower the combined wills of all avatars that came before him.


Guess we are going to see a resurgence in Avatar.
<Nickelodeon is launching Avatar Studios, a new division to create original content spanning animated series and movies based on the world of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra, the network announced Wednesday during ViacomCBS' Investor Day presentation. Original creators and executive producers Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko will lead the studio as co-chief creative officers.
<The first project is already lined up: an animated theatrical film set to begin production this year.
Nick must have been seeing those Netflix numbers and realized what they were sitting on.

I've seen only a few other threads about horror on here and they seemed too specific, so I thought I'd make a broader one.

How do you feel about the current state of horror media? To me it seems at it's always been in a way; a mixed bag. However I feel like I've noticed this trend and, correct me if you think I'm wrong, a lot of more successful recent horror seems to be more creator-driven than in the past.

This is natural I think, as the internet has opened a lot of opportunities for more unique visions and riskier decisions that large studios would otherwise reject.

In a strange sort of symbiosis, though, these large studios attempt to acquire these successful creators and even properties for themselves; see the phenomenon of Slenderman for example. Once an entirely community made, solely internet creation has gotten several of his own movies, and has by and large become an 'artifact' of sorts of 2010's-era web. Studios cannibalize these unique properties and, once they've made some modicum of a profit, utterly destroy the integrity of them, leaving communities to look for the next big thing in horror.

With that aside, feel free to discuss almost literally anything horror related here; movies, books, ARGs, games, creepypasta (the rare good kind, if you can find any).

Hello, comrades. Yes, you, you fucking faggot. "We" (the party state) know, that you cook. Therefore we know that you have an incentive to post ITT, which is nothing else than leftyporg.org's attempt to share recipes.

Please don't be too much gay ITT, and stay on topic.

p.s.: the gunk and dirt are a feature, not a hindrance!

We start by putting like 2 different recipes, namely, "KAPUSKA" (Turkish cabbage recipe) and "SZÉKELY KÁPOSZTA" (Hungarian cabbage recipe) and mixing them into one.

sauerkraut (sour cabbage)
chopped onion (large)
3 chopped garlic
chopped hot salami
whole cumin (like a dozen)
whole peppers (like half a dozen)

Receipe looks delicious, but out of curiosity, why are you writing (((germs))) [anglo] and shit) like that? You know the three echo brackets around names is a device used by antisemites to indicate Jewishness?
I've seen it elsewhere on /leftypol/ as well.
Are you antisemitic, and mean something or someone is Jewish? Come on! say what you mean, spit it out.
Or do you really mean Anglos, and are using the brackets to show you think Anglos are the real problem, not Jews? Comprising even culinary endeavours.

Or is a word filter employed by the ever watchful mods, to change everything in three brackets to (((Anglo)))?

Here is a podcast which goes into the origin of the three brackets thing anyway (one of the hosts is a burger, the other one is an anglo.)

<The triple parentheses meme started out on the Daily Shoah, starting in one of their very early episodes. They have a reverb panel where they can – basically a sound board where they can make things echo in the audio and in real time, live. And so, whenever they would do a Jewish name or a name that sounds Jewish – like Silverstein – they would make it reverberate. And that was just kind of one of the jokes that they made.

our chef here is meme-ing the eternal anglo.
It's like the jewish thing, except for anglos and nobody should take it seriously.

our chef here is using it because the board has had a meme about how logical positivist which peaked in the anglo world has become a stumbling block to western marxists understanding of marx.

and while I'm here, there's also a meme that tries to frame the irish as "the real jews", which exemplifies how ridiculous the boogieman of the jews is. we don't have anything against the irish.


I see! Thanks for explaining :)


no probs :)

Lovecraft became extremely based and REDpilled later in his life. Kind of a shame he died so young and never got to see the defeat of fascism and all the greatachievements of socialism after WW2


The first pic cuts the most based part of the quote
>As for the Republicans – how can one regard seriously a frightened, greedy, nostalgic huddle of tradesmen and lucky idlers who shut their eyes to history and science, steel their emotions against decent human sympathy, cling to sordid and provincial ideals exalting sheer acquisitiveness and condoning artificial hardship for the non-materially-shrewd, dwell smugly and sentimentally in a distorted dream-cosmos of outmoded phrases and principles and attitudes based on the bygone agricultural-handicraft world, and revel in (consciously or unconsciously) mendacious assumptions (such as the notion that real liberty is synonymous with the single detail of unrestricted economic license or that a rational planning of resource-distribution would contravene some vague and mystical 'American heritage'…) utterly contrary to fact and without the slightest foundation in human experience? Intellectually, the Republican idea deserves the tolerance and respect one gives to the dead.
