At risk of this not being just a bunch of untidy posts that do not string together, I actually want to have discussions like other forums do and lets see where it goes. It's 70 degrees here today which is crazy for March in minnesota, global warming is for real...real.

Anyway, yeah, spring is starting to come to Finland as well. It sure is a magical season. The sun is shining, birds are chirping ,and the dog poo is melting. Such a magical time indeed.

Irish, that gas price is nothing. Euro 95 here: 1,76 average. Cheapest: 1,74 and highest something in the 1,80.. That said, the government still has this 25 cents on top of the gas price introduced by the labour PM Kok..

Just wait 'til Fuchs and CPS get here. U&R Returns, I never thought I'd see the day!

Yeah I know that Austria is under the average price of EU - still its madness. EU or at least Austria is turning into a car hating community.
Example:
In Vienna there are the Greens in a coalition with the social democrats since 2 years.
What happend in that time - Subway on weekends in the night - costs about 5 millionen € for the handfull of party makers.
Reason: no money for other stuff - Solution " mh we have XY amount of car drivers, let them pay more"
In the inner parts of city you need to pay for car parking on the street- now they are making 80% of the city into car paying zones - (grammar nazi I know) Im living in the western suburps, not far away from Wiener Wald, and even here is that shit. Parking for one year cost 270€ if you live in that area, for the others: Half hour 1€ - - -
Now you could think "mh so lets park the car at the end of the city, take the train?" "Sounds good" well then I can tell you that they also raised the prices of puplic transport.
Sucks . . .

You poor guy, as I used to live in a city I got rid of my car and laughed at those people who needed 15min of their free time after work to find a parking space far away from their apartment...  ;D

One thing puzzles me though. How are they going to make money? If person likes the gameplay, he propably has patience to grind xp without boosts and after while people will have the stuff they like most anyway, at that point they again have no need to pay. Obiviously there were no high end level people playing in beta, but atleast then it felt like starting wepons were more than enough to be best player on server, even against "better" equipped players. I fear Tribes could turn into BF heroes.

Proponents of printed and redacted encyclopedia criticized Wiki. It grew because of recent decisions by owners of encyclopedia Britannica to stop producing their print editions.

But how the hell will I get info about all Spitfire and Bf-109's variants if not Wikipedia? They even make 2 exclusive articles for just covering the variants of Spitfire!!!! Isn't that something not to dislike? Not written by qualified experts?

I am always at doubt with people called so-called "experts" and such. My career experience would normally grant me the title "IT expert" in scholar's or academician's eyes. Yet in the face of 18 year old random 4chan anonymous hacker, I am nothing in the IT world.

My experience has always been: those crazy geeks sometimes know much more than those guys on the field. One senior pilot (4,000 flight hours on various 737 series) failed to identify a Douglas Dc-8 sitting somewhere in Los Angeles Intl Airport, referring to it as "Airbus A340," due to the similar configuration (4 engine, single floor passenger jet). Well A340 is a plane roughly 2 times larger. A random plane geek (not even working on airline or plane manufacturer) on the internet quickly corrected him.

In WW2 sense, I would trust Mudra or Taranov more than those professors randomly commenting WW2 vehicles on Discovery and History channel and especially generalizing "encyclopedia entries".

Oh, there was this time in 2008 when I didn´t even bother to put fuel into my car when the price was above 1,30 €. What we see now is just ridicolous. They go higher and higher with their prices. I don´t know why the Cartel-Office hasn´t intervened yet. Everyone knows what´s going on. I can´t believe that there is no proof at all that they are having arrangements to keep the price way up.

And driving Car is one of the most fun things to do. I will never stop it. :/

So far I did not manage to mount my 600W stereo on a bicycle. Takes up half of the space in my trunk. But considering smartphone development these days, everything might be possible soon. People will hate me even more then.

However, I was just refuelling an hour ago for 10 €uro. Super E5, 95 octane, 1,699 €uro per liter.

Ah, and if any developer comes around looking for inspiration for his next eastern front map, I got this lying around for quite a while now:

Dukat. Dude.
Just build your own speaker system into the trunk. There are some cheap speakers you can get (I'm working with 8 Ohm ones atm) that produce great sound and are easy to put together. The best part is, you can customize it to whatever you'd like! Want volume? Run a small potentiometer up to the handlebars! Switch system? Easy.

Not to mention, learning to solder comes in handy
Title: Re: Revolting Uniting
Post by: Dukat on 16-03-2012, 02:03:54
Well, the stereo is about 10-15 years, had been in several cars by now. Takes me already hours to lay the cables each time. Biggest problem is always to get the power supply cable from the front battery to the rear without drilling holes, as it is about 1cm thick. However, the stereo has been paid already.

On top of that, I don't know how to miniaturize a stereo properly. I'm not that much of a technician. Accordingly the parts are just very big. My cube:

Yes it was Battleaxe, one of the few 80 Comfort Edition's in the Netherlands. It had only 1 rusty spot and that was because it was not properly fixed many, many years ago. Luckily I got another one now. And this 2 liter 4 cylinder packs almost double the horses. Also my old 1.6 Comfort Edition was declared total loss because the damage was higher than the value so the insurance wouldn't pay that. Damage estimate is 3,000 Euros and well repairable. But it might need a new axle too. It's still waiting to be either sold in parts or to someone who dares to repair it. Call your friend  ;D

And Ajappat, these Audi's don't rust if they never had damage. The whole body shell has been galvanised, if the paint stays on and if you don't replace parts with non-galvanised platework it will last 'till 2512. Also, a straight-5 2.3 liter Quattro 80 is probably one of the best things to have in a country like Finland. What are you waiting for? Go to Germany and import one!!

Regarding the model, not always. One or two models from big manufacturers will come out brilliantly unique like this recent best seller in Indonesia, which is a British design:

That's new car. Caterham always produce cars with that kind of model. You could see one of them in Test Drive game series.

One thing about car weight though. They are heavier for safety reasons.
But British sports car designers like Lotus, TVR, and Caterham have different mind.

Still, the original Lotus Elise 111 from 1996 weighted only 720 KG.
They've gotten fatter and fatter over the years. The last Exige that still had a four-pot weighted close to 1000 KG.

Lol Option A please. Option B is part of what gives me pause. I dont know if it would add much to lower tones or it would just increase "noise wall" and waste trunk space. I've messed with the EQ and gotten a decent balance with my current setup though.

The only problem I have is the result of my paying someone to run the cables. I figured a common 4 dr Camry (sedan zoologic) would be routine for them, and I had no experience. However, one thing I quickly gathered from every search result about car audio though: "Dont run the power and signal cables together."

Guess what I found zip tied together all the way down the side of the car? : (

There is a documentary of the History Channel about Otto Carius (history channel niveau however). I can´t find the whole episode there but at least you know the title.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QYW4Q6D-q_c&feature=related

There is also anotehr Episode about Ludwig Bauer who got shot down 5 times in his tank throughout the war. First he´s driving a Panzer II, then a Panzer III, then a StuG and finally a Panther. His story about how an American watched down into his Panthers hatch is quite funny.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LOpAAva5svo&feature=related

Edit: I wouldn´t call that an awesome documentary, but when you come home are lazy and just want some popcorn-kino like documentary its quite entertaining. Just try not to facepalm yourself when they are talking about Jagdtigers and are showing Jagdpanzer IVs.

I got this episode and that part you can see in this video is in latvia, malinava, and not in Narva. What I meant with my original question was material about Carius during the battles of Narva in the winter/spring of 1944. The same episode of that said series starts off at Narva with Carius' stopping a soviet assault at the southern bridgehead, but it is quite poorly done that it doesnt specify any areas. If someone can find detailed maps for example that shows various settlements, outposts and movements of troops, that would be the most appreciated.

Yeah I know what you mean. I got both seasons and while they really arent anything except the usual american way of doing documentary, they are something you can watch if you are absolutely bored. Some bits are nice but the battles are always the ones in which the allies win. It has its good and bad sides. One of the things I hate is that why on earth the yankees dont like subtitles, the silly russian/german accents piss me off.

Actually, that would be possible. Even at low volumes (volumes low enough to maintain some degree of hearing) the rear window starts to resonate. With a suitable tech-house track and volume pumped to the max it could be quite possible to blast it off. Along with your eardrums, eyeballs, and all sorts of fragile things within the car.

Of course, with the boot opened, it's mostly harmless, and there's nothing like demonstrating to your friends (and the entire neighbourhood within the kilometer) the power of bassdrum. Bonus points for driving to the beach and doing this there (sound waves travel awfully far over water, apparently). Special achievement awarded if it's late summer night at a summer cabin and you decide it's time for a rave (achievement requires you park your car as close to the shore as possible with the woofer facing the water).

Quote
Germans and others are just doing it right. They were bombed into oblivion after WW2, discriminated against by many bankers. Yet they woke up and overtook UK and France. But, you can't look upon yourself based on your past status. Before 1998 Asian crisis, we were rich people, I can afford to spent a week on US east coast holiday with ease. Now, I am just regular middle class people who can't even afford the west coast, let alone European holidays. Have to live by that fact, once a spoiled rich kid, now a start-up paper pusher.

We understood that it is not our place to bitch out about how unfair that US and other foreign investors controlled our economy and how IMF/World Bank told us to do shit. At that time we and those Asian countries borrowed too much money to develop industries we don't really need while they should have built our direly-needed infrastructures.

However, we and the whole Asia didn't get the same privileged treatment that European PIGGS get from IMF at that time like debt write-off, haircut, and so on in return for austerity measures. They have to repay all creditors 100%.

Yes, no generous write-offs like Greece get, except that 10% Indonesia get from Japan and easy loan from Germany. In addition, we had to relegate many economic controls to IMF, thus killing many strategic industries, giving up several controls over expensive natural resources extraction projects to foreign investors, selling assets to foreign investors. All of these "necessary steps" (according to IMF) to make up for the deficit to pay our installments, including that IMF loan.

In that situation, USA can just print money and refuse to do anything (like reducing their spending), they just keep borrowing money and people still buy that junk Yankee bond. Investors like China can't do anything because they depended on them, if US stop spending, whose going to buy all that junk they produce? Garbage in, garbage out, that easy.

Yet those PIGGS still moan like bitches about it. Racial preference and discrimination is on blatant display here and they still talk trash about Germany and other non-troubled EU countries? Aren't those PIGGS spoiled by their status as European? They need to get right

The same? The infamous Finnish thirst for world domination still exists, we're just doing it by economical means now? Ignoring that I was jokingly referring to a German stereotype and how they are trying to grab more power within the EU (not related to Greece), you base this on the fact that we don't want to donate billions without safety to countries that have cheated themselves into the Economic and Monetary Union, and failed their economy, when we in Central and Northern Europe have done things by the books and therefore stayed afloat? Basically, us suffering from their mistakes.

No bank in the world lends money without safety, and neither will we. I'm all for injecting money into Greece as a temporary solution, but doing so without a safety net when you know you yourself is on the knife's edge economically, is damn near suicidal. Also, we can't keep repeating the bail-outs forever. In that case, sooner or later the Greeks will have to leave the EMU.

So, in short: even though Germans got fucked over, they got their economy back on track. Good job. On the other hand, south-east Asians got screwed and no-one was there to help them like the PIGGS (isn't the term PIIGS?) are generously helped today.

Might be seen as unfair, but these countries (PIIGS) have a common currency which of course makes them worth saving, lest we ourselves get dragged with them. Or am I missing something here?

Yes, it is PIIGS, sorry (Portugal Ireland Italy Greece Spain). The PIIGGS includes Great Britain (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PIGS_%28economics%29), which is out of my scope. I exclude them because I like Brits and I am biased.

My rant isn't about the unfairness, but rather the blaming and finger pointing instead of getting in right: live by your own measures. Especially, it is easier to blame foreign parties for what is clearly your own fault. Our leaders tried to paint the US and their eeebul wests as the culprit. But the BS fall short, because too many people know that our government themselves are corrupt as hell. And little know that the people themselves are largely unready for modern economy and perhaps misunderstand the whole concept about it.

When i was a kid, a man knocked on our door and when i opened he fell on his knees, jabbering in a foreign language and startet crying while pointing on the picture of a litle girl. I was so shocked that i gave him 1 euro..when he left i watched him through the window and saw that he pulled out a brend new phone and startet talking, clearly not being sad or desperate or whatever.

Yap, once had few on our door selling some gloves or something. We didn't buy anything and as they were walking to their car, one of them disappeared into our carage. My dad drove them away and next morning we noticed that 'someone' had stolen our broken lawnmower from carage (only thing not behind locked door)  ;D ;D

+1, they might be annoying as fuck when they try to sell God at your doorstep, when they don't wear their non-fancy clothing they are really nice people. Got a JW girl in my class. Very nice girl and acts like everyone else except that she almost never swears. And she got a huge rack.

Also, the JW HQ here is settled in a special building in the city nearby. My mom used to work at the city district and handled all things regarding buildings etc. so she also knew all the rules and regulations the JW's had to follow so they could reside in that building. One of those rules was that if someone said they didn't want the JW's to come back they had to put their names on a list and never come back to that house. So once they visited us my mother told them to put our house on the list as she wasn't interested. Couple of weeks later they did came back and my mother asked them if they wanted to stay in that building because if they didn't she would call her boss and the deal would be terminated. They never returned.

He wasn't pissing he was blessing your house with holy water to ward against gypsies. You think you haven't been visited because you're lucky? It's because of the blessings Jehovah's Witnesses have placed on your house, regardless of your rudeness.

I can't resist to add my story on jehovas witnesses:

When I was as boy, they came to our door occasionally. My mom was a patient housewife, but got rid of them someday.

About 10 years later my mom died, and, guess what, I had them on my door again. 3 visits within 2 month.

The last time they came it was about 11 o' clock in the morning: Some dad bringing his 5 year old son. That made me totally freak out. I told him that the boy would belong into the kindergarden/school, instead of listening to his dad discussing religion with strangers. I pointed out that I see why they are suddenly coming for me after 10 years of silence on our doorstep, and that they should be ashamed of that approach to catch me in the moment of a familiar tragedy.

That was the first time I saw some jehova witness almost lose temper. But after that, they never came again.

Nowadays a fellow worker of mine is a jehova witness and I bite my tongue every time she mentions religion.

Oh, the construction site Ive been working at has to be careful not to disturb burrowing owls. They get a cordoned off area extending several hundred feet from their nest if they settle down. All the piping had to be covered so they wouldnt be tempted to upgrade to a metallic interior design. There was one nest nearby but not close enough to get in the way.

We figured wed just route a burst of compressed gas into a nested pipe if we found one. Inter Continental Owl Launcher.

Title: Re: Revolting Uniting
Post by: Zoologic on 22-03-2012, 05:03:52
Data are stored in Hard disk, which is a disc. It is very sensitive to magnetic interference, so they use that to "write, delete, and manipulate" data, basically like "scratching" the surface of the disc in some probably gentle way that it won't scar it forever, so it can be written off later.

When they delete, they don't magically wipe out everything clean, how do they do that, I don't know exactly how, but they seem to scatter it around. Thus, there are some hash codes/tags/sums (fraction of data) left in the disk. We use some special reading tools to assemble them back, using whatever information left like the original file size compared to the fractions, and fill the missing hashes using whatever method the tool use like playing puzzle, maybe, or better perhaps, like logical guessing.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hash_function
Title: Re: Revolting Uniting
Post by: Flyboy1942 on 22-03-2012, 05:03:55
From what I understand, hard drives are a platter of sectors that could be written with data by magnetically setting individual bits on the disk to 1 or 0, organizing those bits into bytes of more meaningful info, and going up from there to KB, MB, and GB. The spindle on a hard drive interacts with the bits, writing or reading their state of 1 or 0. There is an index that the drive refers to to find sectors associated with a specific file. When you delete something, the HD notes that all the sectors containing that file are "deleted," and pretty much ignoresthat file...until the drive needs the room to write a new file. At this point, it will write over the sectors of the "deleted" file with the new file.

If you actually want to truly delete a file, you have to use a program that writes a random array of 1 and 0s over the sectors. Even then, advanced hardware and software can tell what was written there before. A military grade wipe is something like 30 random 1 0 writes over the disk.

data is recoverable from scratched, bent, shot, and even magnatized disks. Thermite does a good job though.

Feel free to make a fool of me. This was picked up by osmosis so a lot of it is assumed.

0 and 1 is a signal for electricity current to "go through" (1) or don't go through (0). So data is a kind of records of on and off switches.

"Ignoring" means you erase the pointer or reference to a particular area of "0s and 1s," so the data could no longer be found.

One bit can either be 0 or 1.
Eight bits are 1 Byte.
1024 Byte are 1 Kilobyte(kB).
1024 kB are 1 Megabyte(MB).

When the harddrive adds a headline on the level of Megabyte stating 'empty space', it doesn't have to erase the content below digit by digit. Then the content is still there, it has just been marked as 'empty space'.

Indeed.

The hard drives you buy are in GiB as in the exact number of bytes, this was done once as a marketing trick to make it seem you buy more memory, now all company's do it. (as in 1MiB are 1000 Bytes, while 1MB is 1024 Bytes thus your computers gives a smaller number then what the manufacturer says.)

Data is stored in 0 and 1, we all know that, it is deleted by deleting the small piece of information witch tells your computers where exactly on your disc it wrote that information. without that the next time you save something it will just over write your old data. Information is saved in different "blocks", you can choose the size of them from a few Kb to a few MB and you can select the size normaly when formatting a HDD. No matter how small a file is it will always take minimum 1 block of space.

To delete a file there are also different methods, for secure government information it is not good enough to just delete that small file, you can still easily recover it, there they use special software and change all the bits to a 0, or a 1 for example, some software only changes some bits in semi random order, it goes faster but is not as safe.

From what I've read, with modern HDD's (let's say >100 GB) the data density is so high that overwriting once should be enough. Apparently, back when the disk of same size only held 100 MB, this was easier. Recovery after physical damage (fire etc.) is also becoming more difficult due to this.

I always firgured the best bet would be to mix up some thermite, set it in a flower pot in the bay above the HD, put the pot base beneath the HD to catch the melted remnants, and rig up a magnesium ignition device. Instant liquid hard drive!

I've seen a lot of discussions about the multiple layer approach and programs that hide encrypted partitions/files. The way I understand it, If there's an encrypted file, they'll demand the key, if they find evidence of a missing/inaccessible file or partition, they'll demand that key too.

So the only way to pull this off would be to trick any partition/disk analyzer they use into thinking an area of the HD is blank, and then covering any digital tracks within the computer referencing this area. For instance, you cant tell the OS not to write files to specific sectors of the HD, cause this is a giveaway. Having a 3 GB encrypted file, then opening it to show 2 GB will also point to an alternate encrypted file.

"I forgot the password" wont really work either: http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2012/02/laptop-decryption-appeal-rejected/

Ah this is interesting. I've always heard it took at least a few wipes, plus extra for government type stuff. But then, many military computers are using what we would consider very outdated hardware, so I wouldnt be surprised if some disks were still in the 100 MB range.

A Harddrives read-write heads can get slightly misaligned over some time of using it. This means that they don´t move over the center of the area used to store the individual bits anymore. So if you overwrite your old data, the areas won´t be completely re-magnetized anymore, but the hardrives head that rewrote them will not notice this, because it will move over the remagnetized parts and not notice that half the area of the bit is still having the previous alignment.
The point here is that sophisticated Data recovery engineers can open your hard drive and read the plates with a laser and so reconstruct the old data that the intact harddrive didnt reach anymore.
So the only sure way is physical destruction of the drive.

About the encryption. Don´t trust Bitlocker :) I´m sure the Microsoft software has a backdoor or factory default key to comply with american law. The FBI, CIA and Homeland Defense will be able to read them pretty sure.
Using Truecrypt on the other hand is much more safe. You can be sure they don´t have Backdoors in their Software because it´s open source and everyone can take a look at the source code and could find those.
They also support hidden volumes that you can not detect without knowing the password. http://www.truecrypt.org/hiddenvolume

They want to take mine out for like 20 years now, but I refuse. As long as I don't have them causing any pain, I keep them. Mankind survived for millions of years without them being taken out, but I can't keep em nowadays?
"Mankind" as in our current form of Homo sapiens is estimated to be no more than 200 000 years old. During this time however, evolution has not stopped and humans have continued to evolve. One of the things that has changed most notably in the evolution of man is the skull, especially our cranial capacity, our foreheads and our jaws. Just looking at our predecessor Homo erectus should make that clear.

(http://i.imgur.com/6DjKs.png)
Top: Homo erectus est. 1.7 My - 0.3 My
Bottom: Homo sapiens est. 0.2 My - present

Over the past million years, the 'human' jaw has become notably smaller and thus has far less room for as many teeth. Indeed, Mankind has not been "doing fine", as as much as 35% of humans do not have wisdom teeth. The fact that wisdom teeth are not always life-threatening and do not become a problem until after reproductive age means evolutionary pressure is low, but I do not doubt that, had we evolved a few hundred thousand years longer before inventing safe pre-emptive surgery, humans would not have wisdom teeth at all.


That said, my dentist has told me that if your wisdom teeth aren't bothering you, there's no real need to have them removed. As such, I also still have mine.

Actually, Homo erectus had 6 lumbar vertebrae, so it's more likely to be a leftover than a genuine new mutation. Still, I have to disagree that humans are evolving. Natural selection is quickly disappearing, as we use our technology to correct our afflictions and shape our surroundings to fit our needs, rather than evolving to better fit our surroundings. Yet the real end of our 'natural' evolution will be when our understanding of genetics reaches the point where we can safely modify our genome, which I'm reasonably sure, will be within our lifetimes.

Fucking youtube causing me grey hair so early in the morning. God damn bloodsuckers I hate them. Going through FH's tube channel for any vids that was caught by the nets of the copyright nazis and whaddyaknow, 0.7 release trailer got caught but fortunately not blocked. This really pisses me off, like I want to stress over some ancient old videos because they used edith piaf or something.

I'd understand all these nazis if we were hosting a whole movie or a television series in our tube channel, then they'd have all the rights in my eyes to go for it but nowadays logging to our tube channel makes me feel sick from the sheer thought "what will I find this time?" when I go to see copyright section...

Oh how I'd love to back our things and move the channel to some place where we'd be free but I dont think theres a good alternative and besides, everyone's at youtube so theres no other benefits for moving. Its only about time that video makers, ours and the public alike, needs to start using music thats free-to-use... Sucks but at least then we dont have to put up with this shite despite all videos having the same musics in the end.  :P

Goddamnit.

EDIT: Lemme add this bit... YT could slap ads to all of our vids or next to our videos as long as it meant we do not get videos taken out. Im totally fine with that. Gimme ads damnit!

I don't understand this stupidity. What if you payed for the Edith Piaf music? You can then upload it on youtube no? You fucking paid for it so why can't you let other people listen to it? Youtube is not a downloader, even if software exist for it, YT should not recognise them.

It's like if I bought an Edith Piaf's music then let people listen to it in a club, what's the problem? And in the clubs they even earn money, while you don't on your youtube video.

When you throw official parties like i do with friends you would know that you have to pay ridiculous amounts of money to be able to play that music for you.

The amount you have to pay is calculated on factors like how many people will come, how much do you charge for entry, how long will the party last, ...

I can guarantee you, if we give a party we have to pay 250 euro MINIMUM. So a party with less then 50 people and no entry fee. If it gets bigger (like 1000 people, 8 euro entre fee) then it can be over 1000 euro to be allowed to play music for an evening.

If you think having a live band fixes it, then you are wrong, you still have to pay.

You don't buy a song, you have permission to listen to it by yourself or a few people, but no more then 12 at a time and at a private location. If you break these rules you have to pay extra copyright moneys to the big cooperation.

Hence, i support anything that stands up to things like SABAM or RIAA or BREIN or whatever criminal copyright organisation.

If you look at some software's EULA, you too can't display games like Flight Simulator to the public even for promotion purposes that might help the game's sales.

For music and movie, they are also not for public consumption (stated clearly in any legit DVD movie opening screen/back cover). I don't know if what siben says are true, but, I guess it is. Different rates could apply for public usage, and special permissions is needed as well.

Here is the price list if you want to give a party. The left shows the entry fee that you ask, the top is the space (in m²) of where your party will be, the rest are the prices.

http://www.sabam.be/sites/default/files/Nederlands/Utilisateur/Musique/Tarif/De-temps-en-temps/tarief_nl_af_en_toe_105.pdf

So example, if the place that your party is is 600m² (or 30 x 30 meters) and you ask people to pay 5 euro, then you have to pay the criminals 304.84 euro, if you don't ask it in time then add 15% If you fill in the form wrong, add 40%.

If the price of your drinks is more then 1.40 euro, then the difference is added with the entry price and can get you in a higher scale.

German GEMA works exactly like that. For example, when we held a concert for school or a party to raise funds for our graduation ball we needed to pay them a huge amount of money and file paperwork like we were trying to import nuclear weapons.

No they didn't, but they were paid for their work by wealthy individuals and autocratic leaders, who could not buy and multiply copies of their work.

Both germany and italy were splitted into hundreds of individual states, loosely bound by the Reich and its emperor who was voted into office by the members. If the individual sovereigns wanted to be regarded powerful and cultivated, they had to keep up with the others in terms of culture. They paid musicians, philosophers, artists and academies. Thus you got that huge amount of german and italian artists.

Meanwhile it was the opposite in France and Britain. The landlords were strongly bound to the kings, had to spend their time in Paris and London and had to spend their money in the capitals instead of their counties. Thus they got these huge centralized capitals today, gleaming above the borders of the city as a symbol for the whole country.

Well, nobody asked for this, did somebody? :-\

The trading card post wasn't that bad, that it would have required deletion. I had a serious laugh. Though the design was pretty ugly. My favourite is still the StG44 ZF.

Well, the StG44ZF is nice, but I somehow always feel that I neither have a real cq-auto rifle nor a full scale long distance sniper rifle...

And Fuchsy, you sneaky little bastard, I was right about the hslan server rules:

Quote
1. Dont attack or enter uncapturable mainbases!
Only planes are excepted from this rule.
Temporary pushmap-uncaps are NOT considered as uncapturable mainbases.

So you see, I was fully authorized to run people over at the british airport in Mersah Matruh with our Kübelwagen.  :)

I said I had doubts! And it was Alam Halfa. And I greatly enjoyed the cruising rides along unsuspecting uncivilized Brits.

 Keep a regular sleeping schedule.
Do not eat a full meal during the shift, it is alright to snack but keep most of your food intake to your regular daytime schedule.
Coffee will help somewhat but nothing beats a good pillow session, besides you will get fierce indigestion if you drink too much.
You are in a unionized workplace so don't be afraid to tell your supervisor if you have any concerns that being over-tired will affect your work productivity or personal safety.

IF (big IF) you are allowed to, a quick nap will make all the difference in the world. The last time that I worked graveyards was in a hotel (a grocery store also but rarely) and we could always crash in a spare room or the break room but we were only allowed to nap during our lunch break. Personally, i found a 20 minute snooze worked wonders.

So I've been helping at the primary school my Mum works at, carting stuff out of the old building into the (yet to be finished) new building.  I never realised just how much crap is needed to teach kids how to talk (the school has a large special needs unit).  When I found out that the mountain of stuff that had taken 3 of us 4 hours to cart across was used by 10 kids and 2 staff on half days only, I raged.  Mind you, I've not seen what the larger classes need bringing over yet.  Could be much worse.

No, I don't think the new building will have any effect ;D  I'm also of the opinion that you think that I'm being serious, while actually I'm not.  I guess my Mum will like her new office, her temporary one had her desk with the network switch box above her head with its fans whirring away all day long.

I think the caretakers are pretty happy, they say that when they moved all the stuff into the old building (from the now destroyed old-old building), it took them ages.  This time we have some trolleys that they 'borrowed' from a supermarket warehouse.

 The living at home option expired for me about 14 years ago, enjoy every moment while you still can. especially the little things like having a clean house, a full fridge, clean dishes and LAUNDRY!!!


 have you lived with your beau before? if not, you may be in for a surprise if they have any domestic skills applicable to making a house into a home. You don't necessarily need to go back to atomic age cooking a la microwave, with some planning and compatible appetites, it is a cinch to make food ahead of time that will keep you well fed all week long.


 Baked potatoes in the fridge (as and when needed), my kick ass frozen Shepherd's pie and some frozen pasta sauce and I can live all week long without really exerting myself. I can only imagine how much easier it becomes with some extra help in the kitchen. (even if they can only be counted on to rinse the plates and set the table)

And Pft, I have to mop the floors, take out trash, wash dishes, and do all my laundry already. :P  Plus I do work for my dad's business on the side.  I have lived on my own for 4 years of college, so I sorta know what it's like.  What I'm not looking forward to is getting a real job and having to deal with the rest of life (bills and taxes x3).

And we haven't lived together on a perm basis, but I've been over at his for a few days in a row several times, and him with me as well.  We are both quite aware of our culinary abilities, plus our cleanliness is rather equal.  But we'll see how it all works out x3

And yah, I learned in college to do things like getting some cheap chicken breast from the grocery store, bread it, grill it, and I'd have enough food for lunch/dinner for the next few days.  Plus, I never ate breakfast, so that helped a lot on money....

Have to it breakfast man... otherwise it will eat your stomach, especially those who don't have much body fat like you. Saving on food while sacrificing health is not okay, cause health bill is always expensive, unless you are covered by "Obamacare"

Just throw in a glass of milk or juice will be a breakfast already.

pre-cooked chicken breast in a poultry shop is very cheap, it only cost me AUD 4.50 per whole. I can eat it for like 2 days. Also cooking pasta is the second cheapest thing, boil it with a bit of salt, throw in some olive oil and garlic, oregano or basil in a cooking pan, and I call it done.

I have a box I mean to try out sometime. Their Morning Thunder Tea isnt bad.

As for working a night shift...the day of the first night shift, wake up early at a normal time, and dont go to sleep till you get off work and get home. Youll end up with 24+ hours without sleep, but this is the best way to reset. Exhaust yourself then go to sleep at the bedtime you want to set. The same thing when switching back to days. Stay up after your normal night shift bedtime all the way till 10 or whatever you want to reset to.

I dont know what you will be doing on night shift, but I do recommend staying busy with something. Coffee is a morning thing for me, so I tend to drink tea during the night. Dont underestimate the caffeine in a few cups of strong black coffee. ; )

That website is the bastion of truth! Although I make more hours a week, sad state of affairs that is. And I hate mashed food.. But I love jokes about Germans!

A Dutch man sees a man on his knees using his hand to drink water from one of Amsterdam’s canal.

He walks up to him and says in Dutch “Hey – you can’t drink that water, it’s dirty and will make you sick”.

The tourist shouts back in German: “Was sagen Sie?“ (What are you saying?)

The Dutch man responds in German: “Sie sollen mit zwei haende trinken, das geht besser!” (Use both hands, it’s much better!”)

I took my bike out for the first time this year. It had almost no air in the wheels. I cycled over to my parents house. It was not a long trip. Google says it is 1.5km. It has one big down hill, one small up hill, one big up hill and one small down hill. In the end I was exhausted and cursing my bike.

Then I thought I'd have a beer. The front door was bolt-locked. I left my jacket by the front door and went to the back door, which is also the cellar door. I opened the back door and heard the burglar alarm had gone off. I then ran upstairs to the front door to try and turn the alarm off. I then remembered I don't remember the key-combo. I then tried to open the bolt-lock with a key that is in the clothes cabinet. Unfortunately the key couldn't open it from the outside.

Then I tried calling my mom for the key-combo, but realized my phone was in my jacket pocket. So I ran downstairs, then back up to the front door and got my phone. Then I ran back down and called my mom, so I could finally disable the burglar alarm upstairs.

Now I really thought I deserved a beer so I took one and drank it on the porch with lovely sunlight warming my arms and face. Then I pumped air into my bike tires and headed back home.

I'm now looking to buy a used bike which isn't a ridiculous forward-leaning piece of shit biltema bike with a butt-clenching seat, but one of those nice ones I had for 4 months in Holland.



Not really a fall, but it was fairly stupid.

Heat up a needle in a flame and stick it through the nail to drain the blood. Dont worry, you shouldnt be able to feel anything. If you leave the blood it will harden and expand/crack, causing further damage to the skin trying to heal underneath. There's a good chance your nail will fall off if it's bad enough, but you want to get the blood out now so the skin underneath can heal while the nail is waiting to fall off.

A couple years back I had the tip of my middle finger slammed in a 90 minute fire door. It swelled up and turned purple, but I didnt know this trick. The nail fell off eventually, but the skin underneath had healed all weird because of the chunk of trapped, dried blood. There is still a bit of mis-healed skin under the tip of my nail.

EDIT: Decent example...

My BMI was 22 last I checked, i.e. in the middle of the 'normal' range. I can lose weight easily by eating less, but I can only gain weight by intensive training. I gained nearly 16 kg during my military service even though my body fat stayed at around 12%. I've since lost almost the same amount as I don't work out as much.

Slightly overweight but very healthy was the result of a health test I did. They tested blood, blood pressure, breathing, length, weight and mental state. Name any nonsense and they tested it, was fun though. Some national research about health, have to come back every 5 years for the next 30 years.

And I go 2 or 3 times to the gym a week and work days of 10+ hours in a restaurant. Going to the gym doesn't really make me lose weight, the fat I train off comes back as muscle tissue and sporting makes a man hungry. And working in the kitchen is too much temptation for a Fuchs  :) It's a cycle, which will end in a few years, it's in the family. My mother used to have that when she was young and she's really skinny now.

BMI of 23 which is perfectly fine. It used to be lower before I used to exercise, around 19. Thus I think the BMI is bullshit. Muscles do weight more than fat.

Added to that I eat every sort of trash, meat and whatnot. Eating vegetables is something I do, but that´s usually not more than ingestion. I don´t enjoy that shit. Every nutritional consultant would start to cry when seeing what I eat. In fact I have to eat all this stuff to not lose weight.

Due to BMI i am underweight. Due to a doctor i am still underweight but not as much as BMI tells me ;) Anyway, i have a naturally very low % of body fat and i am sporty and healthy.
I still want to add some pounds to my body though. But i do not manage to do so, at least not with real success, no matter how much i eat. So i began building up muscles a few months ago, works quite well.

My BMI say I'm borderline normal to overweight.
5'9" (175 cm) weighing 85 kg (188 lbs).

Waist-to-hip ratio wise, I'm also slightly overweight. Cause: input > output. Pushing papers is not a good lifestyle, need more workout.

Of course BMI isn't to be trusted. But if nothing else,  it does give you a general idea of peoples proportions.

Last time I checked i was 21 on the BMI scale. I'd say i'm thin to average, though I've got the beginning of a beer-belly now.
Still, I'm in the worst physical form ever (as in muscles and mainly stamina) and have thusly began going to the gym for the first time in my life, hopefully to gain a few pounds in the right places.

I'm just about normal weight.
1.92cm and 97kg with a fat index of 16% so there you go... now you know me inside out. :D

Bullsh. BMI says 26.3... go figure?! ^^

Post by: Zoologic on 12-04-2012, 13:04:04
Yes, because if you are muscular (and stocky) like me, they'll count that muscle mass into the BMI component as well. So I'm more into waist-hip ratio.

Just kidding.  ;) You're lifting missiles on a daily basis, as we all know, that sure makes for some muscle growth and explains everything!

Waist-hip ratio sounds interesting, I couldn't resist testing it and I come out with something about 0.84.
BMI is 22, but yeah, it's Dreck. Two years back when I was at the gym my weight raised about 8kg, but muscle-gain only, no increase in fat at all, and then my BMI was at 24.8. So yeah, BMI, go and be inappropriate somewhere else.

Practically the whole day spent within Minecraft and listening to bunch of lets plays on youtube. I see blocks even if I close my eyes. And the worst thing is, Im working on a huge city project in creative flatland on minecraft so its a lot of work. Water is such a pain in the ass in it.

Heck yes, Minecraft! Hired a 4-slot survival server a couple of days ago. Something went wrong and I had some guy from the hosting company fix it. Now it has 20 slots  :) I of course never noticed that!

I don't really like creative-mode though, I like the challenge of survival in Minecraft. Creative feels so pointless. Building giant structures in survival-mode gives much more satisfaction.

I like both but its just way easier to get around doing things in creative if you got a plan. In survival you can plan but more often it takes way longer than you expected. Only getting enough resources to make something is something that I simply dread. I play survival for the survival aspect and creative for... well, being creative and building things. Altho I have always liked the idea of playing survival with friends, creating own base and going for mining trips etc.

If you want PM me your MC name and I will put you on the whitelist of my server. I play on it with Arisaka92 and two classmates.

I actually like taking one person with me and go out searching for caves and resources. We currently have a small village with a three-story building with crafting/smelter basement and giant mine, a small church, a library in progress, a farm with cows, sheeps, chickens, wheat, sugar cane and pumpkins and we want to make a fortress and a wall around it. And some more houses. We could use some hands with that.

So yes, I would be up to make a whitelisted FH community server. Entry is VIP only though, so PM me if you want to join and I will throw it in the group.

16.3 on the BMI.
Always been underweight, still cant find a way to break the 120lb threshold.

Two less and you'd be hospitalized in the UK, at least thats what my aunts husband (who's a forensic psychiatrist in the UK) told me. My sister is in the 16 point range as well.

I'm overweight according to BMI, screw that :|

Good, just practice a little bit, and buy a decent joystick if you have the budget.

You need gunnery skills much more than other flying skills if you want to have more fun in Il-2.

One and only flying tip: don't play too hard on the stick, keep the airflow steady on the wing. Some planes can easily flip over when exceeding its maximum AoA, while some (like Japanese planes) don't.

Long ago, I had an idea of Season 3, being inspired by what Caesarion said at the very end of Season 2: that one day he would reclaim what is rightfully his and would clear his father's name. My idea would have been that at some point, Tiberius is "replaced" and thereafter impersonated by Caesarion; either during Tiberius's youth or during his exile to Rhodos. Tiberius's later military merits would of course be due to him being raised by Titus Pullo.

Of course, the deaths of Octavian's (Augustus's) nephew Marcellus, grandsons Gaius and Lucius, and stepson (rumoured to be real) Drusus, all heirs to the throne before Tiberius, would be arranged by "Tiberius"; Marcellus's and Lucius's "illnesses" would be actually poisonings and Gaius's fatal wounding in combat would have been prearranged, and Drusus, having falled off a horse, conveniently dies only after "Tiberius" has joined him in Germania. Postumus Agrippa, the only other possible claimant, is discredited due to having been framed by "Tiberius", and quite conveniently, he was executed by his guards at the time of Augustus's death.

When Augustus is lying on his deathbed, "Tiberius" would whisper to him, revealing his true identity, to which Augustus would then reply his last words: "If I have played my part well, clap your hands, and dismiss me with applause from the stage." which could - from a certain point of view - refer that "Tiberius's" impersonation has been a "play" presented on a "stage", and Augustus has been an unwitting participant.

Season 4 would be in my vision focus on the power struggle following Tiberius. In this vision, Caligula would not have been the insane tyrant he's described in histories written by his political opponents, but at odds with the Senate still clinging to power, and unwilling to pretend being a "concerned citizen" anymore while clearly having the powers of a God-Emperor, and some of his antics would be actually aimed to ridicule his opponents, but twisted posthumously to be proof of his madness. His successor, uncle Claudius, would of course be (as historically described, by his opponents, of all things!) handsome and intelligent, but limping due to previous polio infection and prone to stammering when excited. Like Caligula, Nero would not be the cruel madman but just brutally cool and calculating, and compassionate when needed; much of his "tyranny" would also be only be misleading interpretation of later historians and his opponents.

Of course, the death of Nero (who would not even commit an "assisted suicide", unlike record states, but was killed by the Senate troops and declared to have been suicided instead) at the end of Season 4 would tie nicely with the end of the entire series, what with the end of the Julio-Claudian dynasty.

An interesting way of embedding the loose ends presented at the end of the Rome series into the historical setting at the early principate. However I feel that it would be just over the edge, a little too liberate in terms of historical accuracy, compared to the rest of the show - which, I find, has found quite an interesting compromise between a certain historical accuracy and the dramatic and emotionally involving plot that a good show needs.

Gentlemen,

Historia is in election mode for the next week. The praesidium is running at its end and a new one has to be chosen.

There are 2 parties, first up: Ellen for Praesident (capitalists), they are made up of current MP's and are looking to continue the dynasty set by our over(gay)lord Cedric. They have some good things going for them: an armed bodyguard from the Netherlands, a few ladies including the one who has been named Historia Babe and Historia Boobs (we call her tettemie) and a lot of free food and drinks.

The other party is called "The Party". They are the communists. In their party program we see such things as a rocket launch, a MAD cantus, more free food and drinks, more vodka, an Iron Curtain party, a long-term future planning and a lottery, where you can win a shed in Ninove (I shit you not).

Here is my dilemma: for whom should I vote? I like the communists only for their connection to Russia, which is a cool place with a cool language. I could vote for them but if I do, I would be betraying myself and my allegiance to Mon Empereur (not to mention an angry dutchman with a musket).

opinions?

I still do not get what kind of election that is and what exactly are the historians of leuven ? I found out that leuven is a city in belgium. Are there parties for the chairmanship of a club with historical interested people or what ? (wtf, that sounds too strange to be true)

Generally, go for the capitalists. The fact that the communists have a better connection to Russia is funny for sure, but more frightening than positive to me.

Anyway, choose waht you feel best to choose and please explain me what the hell this election is about :D Your first post is like 100 % mindfuck to me, sry xD

It made less noice then i thought it would, i was about 50 meters away and the train was not going that fast, maybe 40km/h.

Hmm. That's an interesting question, actually. At the moment I can only remember a couple of car incidents. Nothing amazing, but still.

-As a small child my dad, sister, and me were heading from our summerhouse by car in the night. I was in the passenger seat asleep when we hit a quite large deer. I didn't wake up until later when a cop was shining his light in my face asking my dad if I was injured. I didn't know anything about the crash until the next morning when I saw the remains of the car... let's just say it was beyond repair.

-Going home from school in a friends car, I was again in the passenger seat. The car in front of us slammed the breaks because a cat (!) was crossing the road. We smashed into their behind. I saw it happen in slow motion as I just turned my head from the side window towards the road. I just said "Ei vittu" ("Aw, fuck") and grabbed the ceiling handle a second before we hit them.

A mate drove to an away game taking 4 people with him. I sat on the backseat. On a (german) motorway junction there are those very long but tight turns, recommened speed is 40-60 km/h. He went in with nearly 100.

At the beginning i just thought, that its probably a bit too fast, then too fast, then way too fast. At the last part of the turn, the car was nearly unable to take the turn and close to hit the guardrail. Then the driver swang the steering wheel to the right.
The car was sliding first, probably looked like a decent drift lol. Then the car suddenly was driving on the 2 left tires, while the right ones were a bit in the air.
Due to that the driver was unable to control the car for that time and nearly drove into the guardrail, he just got the car turned though.
At the end of the turn you drive up on the regular motorway again, car was still sliding with the rear more left than the front and we barely missed a car with the rear of ours, which was driving on the right of the motorway.I felt like in an action film.

Funny thing is that you tend to forget such things quite fast, but it was so close to a really tough accident.

On the other hand, sharks don't fall sick, thus they will stay on the job until they die. Also they can withstand large amounts of pressure that would make a bear crumple like a packet of dry crisps.

When you lose smell, you lose taste (mostly), correct me if I'm wrong.
I'd go for the taste anyway.It would make life a lot less enjoyable (cause food is awesome), but it wouldn't restrict me in any way.

I love food, so I need both taste and smell.
I also enjoy life, i.e. women, so I need sight and touch. But I can live without her nagging! Right? Right?!

Yes, hearing. It's a hard choice and still not a perfect choice but all the other one's are more vital to me. Sight for the movies, games and the female gender.
Taste for food, for that is the greatest thing in life.
Touch for well, we all know what we want touch for.
Smell also because of food.

Woah, Biiviz, we match. Wanna date?

I can't see how taste and smell are together with Sight and hearing though. I can't see me enjoying life without either hearing or sight.
Of those, I do think I'd give up smell. I don't smell that well anyway. But indeed that is a tough one.

The one I've asked myself, and friends, more is if you had to choose, would you be
1. Blind
2. Deaf
3. Mute

but then it's even easier, I'd rather be mute. it can be replaced by say, writing. And it comes back to that life is so beautiful I need to see it, and I need music.
Title: Re: Revolting Uniting
Post by: Biiviz on 22-04-2012, 01:04:28
Hmm. On the other hand, if I was deaf, I wouldn't be able to succeed in my chosen career or live life the way I do now. The smallest change to my current life would be to lose my sense of taste. Perhaps I'd still experience some kind of taste by my sense of smell. It would make life a lot easier in some regards. For example, I'd save tons on only buying the cheapest, most tasteless food products as long as they contain the nutrients I need.

Also, I'd become the #1 oral sex champion of the world. ;)

Had a new run with das Polo, beat my previous record in the picture, also went 4 km/h faster than Volkswagen tests for top speed on the particular model but couldn't catch pic at the time... it (2011 Polo GTI) starts swerving side to side after 220. Ran into similar problems in Peugeot 207 after 210 km/h so meh... don't get either of the two if you plan to speed.

European cars... cheap but still with the quality.

Locally made Japanese car will kill you: no airbag, no safe cage (steel reinforced zone chassis), featureless overpriced crap (yes, due to sole distributor agents and weird car sales law here). It is basically designed to carry more people and consume less fuel.

Korean brands are much better and reasonably priced. But since people cared so much about resale value (used Toyota and Honda models still retains 70-80% of its value in 4 years), they can overprice as much as they want.

Why, oh why would you go for a Polo GTI? That's like buying a 30x overpriced go-cart...*shakeshead*

My 2003 VW Passat Variant with 130HP does 220km/h as well, is stable at that speed, can load 500kg cargo while doing that speed and costs less than a Polo GTI. ^^

You are less cool driving a Passat than someone driving a Polo GTI, true story.
But you probably don't care about that, i wouldn't either, so you are right.

Atm i got to stick to my Polo III though, it gets to 160 km/h but then you are ready to take off and you think that loud, vibrating little fireball is going to explode any second. Going that speed not recommended when it is a windy day. And yea its ugly. But im fine with it, driving mostly local traffic anyway. That little thing fits in every parking spot, a Passat doesnt btw :P

This happened in a highway 80 km/h vs. 100 km/h head on. (We drive on the right)
The inverted white car is 2011 Hyundai Tucson and the wrecked silver crossover is 2009 Honda CR-V, no deaths, only minor injuries. The Tucson lose control, hit the railings and flew over the CR-V, with its right front tire hitting the CR-V's right windshield column. Then it flips over.

The Tucson still remains largely intact, while almost the entire left side completely shattered. The passenger cabin however, the steel cage does it job properly.

Best part of Today? Good day at work, lot of things done but still a lot to do.

Another good part, a new episode of Mad Men with Roger Sterling being Roger Sterling. Awesome.

Worst? I made an application for a manager position at a large company in Sweden. Applied several months ago knowing that their recruiting is very slow and it might take some time before they give a callback and book the interview.

After several months they finally said something.

By email.

Saying they had gone on with other applicants.

I'm no grumpy old man and I know how big companies work and that the wheels turns slowly. I have no issues with that. But, I think there's something wrong when you apply, spend your time with an application and all and send it in and you do your best and all you get is an email back from an no reply address.

That's just wrong in my book but still, big companies...

Better luck next time.

Had a new run with das Polo, beat my previous record in the picture, also went 4 km/h faster than Volkswagen tests for top speed on the particular model but couldn't catch pic at the time... it (2011 Polo GTI) starts swerving side to side after 220. Ran into similar problems in Peugeot 207 after 210 km/h so meh... don't get either of the two if you plan to speed.

Why, oh why would you go for a Polo GTI? That's like buying a 30x overpriced go-cart...*shakeshead*

My 2003 VW Passat Variant with 130HP does 220km/h as well, is stable at that speed, can load 500kg cargo while doing that speed and costs less than a Polo GTI. ^^

I made somewhat of a mistake buying the Polo, the reason was Istanbul traffic on the Euro side was always very "tight" and congested (tight for lack of better word for traffic that requires small cars and not one with a big wheel base), due to it being historical with very small one way streets. So I bought it, and then moved to the Asian side where everything is bigger including the roads and now I'm forever doomed with das Polo. Between fixing my wrecked 270 km/h MK5 R32 and the huge prices of cars its going to take me a while to replace my Polo but eventually I will go for an Audi or maybe a Passat, something German :)

Ehhh the nicest one I have is a gift which was a Hublot "Big Bang". Wonderful name for a watch. The nicest one in my opinion that I actually spent my own money on is an Omega Speedmaster, which is a terrible name but still a wonderful wonderful watch :)

Yours looks awesome by the way, black dials compliment the rest of the watch pretty well.

A wristwatch is much easier to look at than a mobile phone, and is about three thousand, seven hundred and forty six times more classier (if digital rather than analogue this drops to only seven hundred and nine times classier).

Its the only watch thats worth its price IMO. Costs about 2,000-3,000 dollars but well worth it. Most of the other watches are just overpriced for their actual worth. I would highly suggest one. Not much of a fan of digital, have a Casio Protrek for work thats about it.

I feel like a lot of watches are overprized to me. I do not need to spend 1000 $ to get a good looking watch. I wear a 100 € (~130 $) Fossil watch and i am totally fine with it. A lot of those very expensive watches do not even look better than a lot cheaper watches. You just have to search for the right one and then you will probably find one you like, even in lower price segment. But I can understand that owning an expensive watch feels good and some of the expensive ones are just as beautiful in look as in quality. But I can not afford such things and in the end watches are pure luxury.
Title: Re: Revolting Uniting
Post by: Tolga<3 on 26-04-2012, 03:04:40
I agree, you could buy a $300 Seiko that has the same steel casing/strap and blue dial as Omega, which is priced in the thousands. Depends on what you like and how much you'd spend. Personally I myself find it weird people spend tons and tons of money on super duper computers to play things in high quality, and they might find that me buying a 3,000 dollar watch might be weird but eh, depends on your interests entirely :D

In terms of functionality, I see watch as fashion thing. So I normally see all of them as grossly overpriced. For $3,000 you can get a decent motorbike that can move you from one place to another 100 km away. You just look at it to know the time, almost nothing else. But that's how I see it.

I wear a $100 Guess with black straps, very classy looking and it works underwater up to 50 m depth. Overall I like it, and it was a birthday present from my brother.

I wear a G-Shock and those things can really take anything, water resistant up to 200 m, shock resistant, tons of functions, 10 year battery... It might not look that classy but it's the ultimate watch when it comes to ruggednes at that price point.

Nose, I cut the hairs that protrude out. Ears, don't have hair there. Armpits and private parts, don't shave but I do cut the hair with small scissors to a reasonable length (they would be REALLY hairy otherwise). Other body hair below neck I leave as is. Wish I had as much chest hair that I would have to be worried about whether to shave it or not.

Chest yes, private parts yes, legs when I am not lazy, etc.  Not arms though, and if you're hairy enough to need to shave your nose, ears, and fingers, you're probably Armenian.

While we are at shaving. I just bought a special razor this week to cut my hair on the head. I have never done that before. Because of a receiding hairline (what´s the correct english name for those edges) I prefer to wear them short. But I´m to greedy to pay the hairdresser 15€ a month for basically doing nothing. I have attachments for 1,2cm 0.9cm and 0.6cm.

I want them short, not "skinhead-short" to make things clear here.

Any experiences with that. What do I have to pay attention to? What looks better: Everything on one length or the sides shorter than the top? What can go wrong?

Capitalism most definitely did not give you 150% pay, that's exactly what the "they fight capitalism and shit"-people were and are fighting for. Things like 8 hour work days, extra pay for weekend/holiday/night shifts, payed summer vacations etc.

With all their modern camp-ness, the socialist movement has made life infinitely better than it was 130 years ago when it began. Don't forget that ;)

Ok:

Translation of what is written there. The words that aren´t german at all are marked with a star. Im then trying to find some german words that exist and sound the same:

And what in the sunten* kunten*, kunten* under* was,
and what in the salt-friendly kunten* trannies kunt* the sahr*.

sunten ---> unten : under
kunten/ kunt---> konnten : they could/ he,she,it could
under ---> unter : under
sahr ---> Saar? The name of a river

And this totally fucks up german grammar. So you can´t translate that.  :(

listening to it doesn´t help either. Pseudo german it is.

i shaved my belly hair and now i look awsome. Im summer ready  8)

Made me wonder, do you people shave your chest belly private parts legs feet fingers ears nose?

Chest yes, private parts yes, legs when I am not lazy, etc.  Not arms though, and if you're hairy enough to need to shave your nose, ears, and fingers, you're probably Armenian.

I'm a man! Real man have lots of hair, semi man shave it, girly man dont grow it.

New question. On another forum ive found a topic in wich people direct eachother to GORE sites. Beheadings, horrible accidents, executions, burnings etc. And they mreally seem to love watching it: out of interest or maybe even some wierd fetish.

Its been (i guess) 5 years ago since i saw the beheading of a brit/american i dont recall, wich was really really awfull. it took them 3/4 minutes to cut of his headf and during that time he was allive and screaming. Till this day i regret watching it and do not have any intention of watching another one, hopefully ever again.

Have you seen clips/movies like that? Do you search for it?

When you play an English version of Company of Heroes, the Germans speak a mix of English and German and also speak English with German accent. Sounds pretty weird, but funny.

I hate about FH2, that the US guys have some awesome "Chaaaaarge", "LETS GO LETS GO LETS GO" and the Germans got "DEUTSCHLAAAAAND" with a highly retarded voice.

That is sooo creepy. Every time i hear that I always have to think about the fucked up picture of the Wehrmacht soldiers. That they were overall patriots charging to battle for Hitler and the Nazi Empire.

I haven't been that into it, but a change to a "socialist" president will only get better. At least the right-wing extremes didn't win (Sarkozy having some strange opinions on immigrants himself).

But then again, Hollande isn't exactly socialist. And like every election in the western world, it will be the same but different.

As far as I know the party is not too far left. More like social democrats, maybe a little more left. He guess he is gonna do more for the French people than Sarcozy did.

The only thing I liked about Sarcozy was his quick acting at the Lybia crysis. Just a few days or weeks later and it could have been too late already, but thats my very personal opinion about that. I doubt Hollande has the balls for giving the order to intervene in such a situation.

As a French I'd be happy though. Without knowing too much about French politics, Hollande is the better man for the country, since he probably can not be worse than Sarkozy relating home policy.

It's a political football move. I'm for gay marriage but am not moved by this statement. Even a little annoyed that he's obviously using it to drum up attention and solidify votes. When it comes down to it, this is not a question of Executive policy, this is a matter of the Supreme Court. What the president thinks about it has no effect on the matter, just like what I think about it. Or what the Supreme Court thinks about it really. Their job is to lay aside personal opinions and consider the rights objectively.

I don't think Obama really cares about gays and marriage LHeureux, he just wants votes. It's politics, he's not supporting anyone but himself and his financers.

No matter if it's pure populism, in this case it's probably even less populism than in most other statements. Best thing would have been to say nothing probably. I like it when he takes a stand, no matter if it hat just a political background or not. We all have opinions about this and a president is allowed to have them aswell.

Germanys Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel is the complete opposite. As soon as parties are discussing things or there is criticism, she does not say anything to that. Imo that's a lot worse. She stays in the background while everyone is waiting for a statement from her and tries to stay out of general discussions. Its the job of politicians in the most important position of their country to give away their opinion. They are the reason for a lot of votes, so they are responsible for their electors. Merkels behaviour makes me sad :(

To me, the argument of populism a bit weak, because everything a politician does is usually populism. If Obama says nothing its populism too, because he prevents his prestige from taking damage. Note that the opinions are almost 50/50 and a president takes a risk by telling the people his opinion.

But as soon as a president gives away his opinion close to the elections it's suddenly pure populism to everyone. Apart from that, I like that he said that because I share this opinion and there are definately people in the US that look up to him and think about such themes and maybe change their minds.

I just think that people should appreciate it when the president shares his opinion, there is some kind of  political and populist background anyway, but in this case he risks something and supports freedom of minorities.

I do not say that to you Fuchs (I know what you tried to express and you are often right with that, but it just does not for this case imo), it's more of a general thing I noticed when elections are closing in and people are permanently trying to discredit politicians for populism, ignoring the effect that statement has on the population.

Anyway, I'm pretty sure it's his personal opinion to allow gay marriage as well.
Title: Re: Revolting Uniting
Post by: Fuchs on 12-05-2012, 16:05:19
You can't compare the US President to Germany's Federal Chancellor, two very different jobs. You also have a President, Merkel's job is just to hold the government together and the President needs to be the face of the whole nation.

This thing Obama did, was all a part of his campaign. I do believe he personally doesn't really care if gays get married, he'd just allow it, but he's a politician so before he states he's supporting it he needs to wait for the perfect moment to say it. What better moment to do than when so many conservatives have angered progressive Americans by stating they hate gay marriage etc. Obama doesn't take risks, he's the most skilled 'politician' I know. Not that I agree with his views but the way he acts in public, makes his statements, all those things. Obama can now count on even more votes. And probably will win since a lot of people I know, even Republicans, are now voting for Obama since he's, and I quote, "the lesser evil".

And you are totally right, basically all things they say are populism. Those who truly hold only to their opinions are very rare and most of the time extremists. And I'm not trying to discredit Obama, I think he's doing his campaign very, very well seeing his goal is to get re-elected.

Fuchs is absolutely correct about Obama.  He has played gay rights as politics for his entire term.  For instance, gays in the army.  Don't Ask Don't Tell was an executive order given by Bill Clinton.  Executive Orders can be overturned at a whim by any sitting president just by issuing another executive order.  At ANY POINT, Obama could have just issued the executive order and it would have been gone.  Instead, he did nothing, and let congress bitch and fight about it for over a year.  It was all just a political game, a distraction, that left LOTS of the gay community feeling upset about Obama.  So this is just another political ploy, a way of trying to drag back the gay support, without actually having to commit to anything.  He went out of his way to state that his "support" of gay marriage is purely a personal point of view, and still believes that it "should be up to the states to decide."

Also, if you research his views on gay marriage, one finds that he spent most of his life going back and forth  between supporting it and being against it, so he absolutely plays this purely for politics.

Obama has no authority over the issue, so him saying it "should be up to the states to decide" is meaningless, because that's exactly the way it is. The thing is, if you look at this without the filter of personal bias, it becomes an issue of personal rights, which puts it in the domain of the Supreme Court, which means neither the President or the States have any say in the matter.

So, in a way, him saying it's for the states to decide isn't actually saying nothing, it's also denying gay marriage as a right, framing it as a regulatory matter for the states.

@ Fuchs

Well your right, our president is indeed the head of the country and he maybe would give away his opinion. Our old one (that got abolished due to cases of fraud, which is good because he was a dweeb) wouldn't, our new one probably would.

Anyway, I did not relate Merkels passive behaviour to the gay-marriage or a similar ethical theme, more for general political questions.

Merkel has been critiziced a lot for her passive behaviour. There are political questions people expect a reaction from. I know it goes away from the topic of gay-marriage but there are questions that people expect Obama and Merkel to comment on in their countries.

Her job is a lot more than just keeping the gouvernment together. People expect statements and a clearly drawn political line, but do not get that.

What our president says is not that interesting to the people, he is just the representative of our country and his words are usually not worth a lot, because he is not the one who can make a change. Again: you are right, he would definately be the one stating his opinion about ethical themes.

So home policy unfortunately comes down to Merkel, and she does not say anything most of the time.

So better there is an important politician that gives away a populistic opinion, than one that does not take stand at all. No matter how much Obamas and Merkels positions differ, in general political questions people demand a reaction from both, we usually do not get one, nor the coalation, nor her own party which leads to different political camps in the gouvernemnt itself, which leads to an implausible gouvernment at the moment. Mission of keeping the government together imo failed, and a clear political line is missing there.

Obama got one, and as you said he has great success, in Germany we lack something like that atm, that was all I wanted to express with that :)

Edit: Thanks for clearing that up mudra, estimated Obama himself a bit wrong then. I nevertheless like that he said that, even if it's pure populism.

he needs to wait for the perfect moment to say it

unfortunately he had the moment picked by his sidekick


And you are totally right, basically all things they say are populism. Those who truly hold only to their opinions are very rare and most of the time extremists.

even though i disagree with most of what Ron Paul says, i still respect him for having pretty much always had the same position on his issues. (unlike certain flipfloppers)

Also, if you research his views on gay marriage, one finds that he spent most of his life going back and forth  between supporting it and being against it, so he absolutely plays this purely for politics.

well thats not good. hopefully the other candidate have a record of consistency.

oh wait.

I'm quite confused with US situation.

Race card is a major problem and the contrast between liberals and conservatives.

I used to follow a discussion, whether a certain minorities are heavily discriminated against in US. Surely the liberals are on fire regarding how profiling is one of the major issues. But statistics does say, that the majority of crimes are committed by that minority and the majority of the victim are also the same group. I settle by that fact, period.

Then, the case shifted into, whether the prosecution are biased if the victim is from the majority. The case become blurred because the majority really take advantage in certain situation, while the minorities sometimes played their cards well. A fact came from BBC told us, that death penalty was easily given to black perpetrators when the victim is white. But that draws statistics spanning from the segregation era, when racism was sponsored by the government. (unclear)

A real case emerged, a Hispanic guy shot a black teenager. Typical reaction emerged. My only reaction was, disgusted towards the media, not the case itself. Because they quickly jumped into the "whiteness" of that Hispanic guy. It is not a fact finding anymore, but a racism issue. Fuck it! Then I read Mudra's post, adding another (unchecked) fact that the guy was actually a teacher to poor black community. The liberals and media stirred the issue too much in this case, so I couldn't care anymore for the outcome here.

Am I being steered by Mudra's opinion?

Well yeah, they are just making the lives of several groups of people more difficult. At least, they shouldn't forget to put a sign "go away from here if you are -insert some group of people- and please apologize for accidentally visiting this area."

Ok so far all series that I watched where humans are in an apocalyspe (Falling Skies, The walking Dead) always go the same way : they find a good place to stay, then the relationships within the group goes down and the series forget it's roots (killing zombies and aliens), then it becomes humans vs humans.

They squeezed 2 or even 3 seasons into 1 season. That's what made it empty compared to season 1. I know about the troubles with Rome, Ted.. The world wasn't ready for a show of such epic proportions.

The world wasn't ready for a show of such epic proportions.
But is it any readier now?

If it were, I have been having a fantasy of seeing a season-length HBO adaptation of The Egyptian ever since I read the book. The novel (at least the Finnish original - don't know about the "abridged" ie. censored English translation that is the only one available) is already neatly divided into 15 "books" that could be made into individual episodes. Hey, if it was already good enough for Hollywood once, and they're back to remaking the old epics, then why not? Yes, there was an abortion of a movie way back in 1954, which completely alters the message, invents a happy ending, adds exaggeratedly overt fundamentalist Christian preachings, not to mention ditching all the philosophical ponderings and most of the plot along the way, making the end result incomprehensible. So at least the remake could not be any worse... :P

So my cat of 16-17 years is on his deathbed, curled on a bed made from a box and my robe.  Over the past week, he has deteriorated quickly, and now has lost the ability to walk.  He refuses food, and barely drinks water.  He seems generally confused and scared....  This morning he's started to feel cold, and his breathing is getting shallower.  He's, thankfully, not in any pain, and is just quietly lying on his bed beside me, looking up at me.  I'm afraid to hold him anymore because his body is so limp I have to hold him tight to keep him on my lap, but his breathing is so weak, that holding him tight might suffocate him....

Looks like he had a happy life.

Is he a British Shorthair?

In my life, I only had 1 cat and 3 dogs. A random domestic cat which simply came to the house and we feed him and then lived with us. He is semi-feral, so we let him to roam free and return by himself. He died from traffic accident. I was too young to feel sadness at that time.

Our current dog is adopted by my Mom, and also nearing his end, his right eye is already not working. This time I think I'll feel the loss, he grew old with me, from my high school years up to now. It's been 14 years already. I rarely took him outside, since he is a very very small fragile Chihuahua. So we let him play all around the house and the backyard.

We think he's a chartruex, but can never be certain.  He was a rescue cat, found on the porch of an adoption agency with a litter of kittens.

And :(  Many hugs for you Zoo....  Logan seems to be slowly slipping away...he is feeling colder, and his breathing seems to be getting shallower.  I put a towel over him, and slipped a heating pad under my robe for him.  He just lies there constantly looking up at me, and I'm powerless to help him....  :'(

Don't try to extend his life Mudra, that will only be worse for the old boss. Just be with him.

Our cat died aged 19 last year. She used to be fat but still always lived outside and the last 2 years of her life he was getting slim, still nice and was always around the garden. Last 2 months of her life she was like.. gone. Saw her rarely and she didn't seem to recognize any of us. We think it was dementia. One day we caught her and she looked terrible, lost so much weight that she was a walking skeleton with fur. And there was puss coming out of her mouth too. That turned out to be a loose teeth (those where falling out too the last couple of years) that got an infection. Then we got the choice to lock her up, give her medication and feed her special food or to put her down. My father wanted to try that at first but luckily I convinced him not to, this cat had always been outside. Locking that old lady up would've made her the most unhappy cat on the world. And she was old enough.

This is Saab, named after the car since she loved sitting on chairs warming them up for us. Back in the day that was mostly a Saab thing. We cut her ears off because we didn't like the ears on the cat (She actually got skincancer there so they where removed, I liked the seal-look though).

(http://i45.tinypic.com/34y1veo.jpg)

'Twas a really special cat. Dumped very, very young in a bag at the side of the road, my father found her. So she was never properly raised by mother-cat. She didn't have a cat-nav in her head so she used to get lost and then decided not to go further than 50m around our house  :P

Sorry to hear it old chap, that's a really sad situation, having that cat for 17 years as a close companion. Our first cat died after 3 days, it was a little white kitten with blue eyes. We called him James. We picked it up fom the asylum and started learning it to take the stairs, two days in, he started throwing up yellow-green slime. The next day, he was totally apathic. We took him to the vet's and it was toxoplasmosis, 100% death rate with kittens. :'(
Still get tears in my eyes when I think of him.

Now we have a new cat for 3 years already, we called her James as well, and she's the nicest cat you could wish.

I can't stop crying....

Logan just passed away in my arms, about 10, 15 minutes ago.  We were sitting here at my computer, when he suddenly starting moving around, trying to get out of the box.  I thought he wanted some water, so I picked him out and sit him down by the water dish, and he immediately collapsed down, unable to get to the water.  So I held him up, holding his head over the water, but he didn't drink at all.  At that point, I took him into my arms, and he started mouth breathing, gasping for deep breaths.  I walked out to my mom, and she (having had our other 2 cats die in her arms) immediately knew what was happening.  So we walked outside (Logan was an indoor cat, but the past few days, the he started begging to go outside, and we couldn't say no, so we took him on guided walks around the backyard.  He loved it.) and sat down on chairs, with me holding him in my lap. 

We sat for a long time, when he suddenly started twitching, little twitches like muscle spasms in his legs and neck and tail.  This went on for awhile, and his pupils started getting really big.  We brought out his fave toy (a little chew toy turtle stuffed with catnip, we got it for him for x-mas last year, and he loved it).   My mom picked a flower from her garden, and held it in front of his eyes, so he would have something to look at.  We talked and sat and petted him for awhile, soothing him through the occasional convulsions.  Me and my mom started talking about past memories of him and such, periodically checking to make sure he was still breathing, which he was, but just barely.

Then, after an hour or so, my mom looked at him (we hadn't checked in few minutes) and noticed he had stopped breathing.  We moved him around a little, trying to get any response at all, and my mom and I took turns holding him and the other putting an ear to his chest to listen for a heartbeat.  But there was nothing.  Logan passed away, quietly, peacefully, on my lap and in my arms.

This is the last picture we ever took of him, from yesterday.  He had managed to walk almost the whole way from the hallway (he had collapsed there earlier from trying to walk) to the den just down the hallway, and in to his spot we always have for him at the window (he likes to lay there in the afternoon sun).  He collapsed just before reaching it, and I had to pick him up and lay him down onto the blanket.  He curled up into it and looked so relaxed, almost normal, like nothing was wrong.  So I went back to my room, got my camera, and snapped this photo:

16 to 17 years sounds like he had a happy life.
My girlfriend and I had a cat. Was a citycat. Life in the city is hard for cats. Cars, children, people, asshats. After a couple of years he didn't come home. We were looking for him, but of course we didn't find him. So, compared to ours, yours probably had a really great life.

And then there was his companion, a female cat. She was the smartest cat I've ever seen. Very adopted to city life. She could sense danger from miles away. But she also loved attention of peaceful crowds. She was a real star. When we found her at the age of 6 to 8 weeks on a cold february evening, she was almost dead. Only half the size of what cats are used to be at that age, having worms and kitten flu. She greatly recovered, but never grew beyond the size of a 5 or 6 month old. She also loved to go for walks with us. When a leashed dog passed, she was so cool. She simply sat down and looked elsewhere. No situation hard enough for her to deal. When my girlfriend and I parted, my girlfriend moved down the street to another house and the cat decided to stay with the neighbours. She had her own mind we let her have her will.

So, What I wanted to say is that I'm sorry for your upcoming loss.

Post by: Captain Pyjama Shark on 17-05-2012, 23:05:18
Like Dukat said 17 years is a very long time for a cat, not of that course that that makes his death any easier.  Losing pets sucks, I'm a cat guy and it took me a little while to get over the death of both my last cat and dog.  But now when I remember them I can do so happily, because they were such good friends and cos I had a bunch of fun with them, but it was so hard when I lost them.

So i'm really sorry Mudra cuz i know it's so hard, but at least your cat died peacefully.  When my last cat was put down my mom stayed with her and comforted her as she died from the euthanasia. The veterinarian says she always encourages people to be with their pet when they die, because they will look around for their owner if they're not there.  god i am getting teary eyed just writing this.  But that was good that you stayed with him right until the end, that's what matters. 

And maybe you can take comfort that he's in kitty heaven or the summerlands or wherever, and if you don't believe in that then at least he's at peace.  and don't feel bad about crying how can you not when something like this happens, I think the death of an animal is even harder sometimes than the death of a person.  a person has many flaws, animals are essentially innocent of everything.

when i was a really little kid my mom showed me this poem to make me feel better about our cat dying:
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....


Nowadays that poem still touches me for whatever reason, but I also like this Marcus Aurelius quote:
Death, like birth, is willed by nature, so how can it be bad?

Sad stories there guys, I always wanted a cat, but never had one so far. I'll probably get one in the future as long as time allows it, because I love cats.

I'm sure you feel rewarded and well when you think back at your time with her Mudra. You will never forget her and it's great you have been able to spend such a long time with her. I just hope you are going to handle the loss as well as in any way possible

Thank you...so much for the kind words my friends....  And CPS, I showed the poem to my mother.  It made both of us break down for awhile.

We will be taking Logan to a pet cemetery tomorrow morning, for cremation, and he will take his place next to the ashes of our other two cats, with his collar and little chew toy turtle on top of the oak chest....

Once again, thank you.

These last pages made me sad. Your story was touching Mudra.
I'm a cat person too. Never had any myself but my grandparents living in the countryside had several cats.  They had 3 cats and they were "appointed" to me and my 2 brothers. "my" cat was an asocial one, always at least 2 metres from anyone, still I liked that cat. He was something special to me. Then when I was maybe 6, it suddenly had disappeared. Everyone said he had run off, and that he wouldn't come back unless my grandfather started to plow the potato-field they had. Every summer from then when I was there, I begged him to plow the potato-field (of course he did, when I wasn't there) so that the cat would come back. Now I'm wiser and know what it was about.

Not as touching, but your cat-story got me sentimental. Cats are so great.
My condolences Mudra.
I do love how everyone here kind of unites (as per thread title) and most shed a tear for a cats passing. :)


Still, reading all this makes me feel lucky and deeply frightened at the same time.
I have never had any first hand experence with death. Only one in my family (one of my grandfathers) have died, but him and my father were everything but friends, so never met my grandfather (died when I was 14). Makes me feel lucky, but still really scared. My last grandfather, and both my grandmothers don't have long left. At 21, I have no idea how I will take it, I kinda think maybe, as horrible as this sound, I should have been exposed to death at a younger age, before I understood what it means.

I understand what you mean, 18 years and never really had to face it.  Never met my dad's parents and my other granddad died when I was two.  So slightly terrified to have to face it anytime soon.  Unless I count a cat and a dog, which was still pretty tough at the time to be honest.

I feel a kind of emptiness after somebody's or some animal that you know's passing. I lost all my grandparents, except my Grandma (from Mom).

Emptiness that makes you think, "there will be no more this and that with this guy/cat/dog."

But I'm always hoping that those sentient creatures died happy.

I'm really sorry for your loss bro. I feel it too. It is very difficult to part with one of your family member.

 What a total load of bullshit you are telling us,

 CEGEP students are bombing subways, shutting down entire schools, terrorizing student's and professor's and yet, you make it sound like the Quebec government has a boot to your neck.  Due to the extreme cost of school in British Columbia, I have no sympathy whatsoever for Quebecker's and their outrageous demands for subsidized school costs.


 Try and pay for one semester in Ontario or in BC and every single Quebec student would shut the fuck up for eternity (6000 Dollars for one semester @ UBC makes McGill look like a dollar store). These protests are symptomatic of a much larger problem within Quebec and that is simply the fact that your expectations are no longer grounded in a fiscal reality. Quebecker's bitch about reasonable accomodation, yet they won't even act rationally or even pretend towards fiscal responsibility.

Sleeping.

It is just too bloody warm in my bedroom. Today was sunny day and "only" +26°C, but at the moment the temperature inside is +27°C. A bit too much for me. All the windows are open but it doesn't really all that much. Nice bonus, though, is the huge bird cherry tree (http://hotel-104.srv.hosting.fi/fi/imagebank/image/40/40309/Tuomi,+Prunus+padus+40309.jpg) just outside my window. The scent here is fabulous. Should get a mosquito net or something though. Because the windows are open, everything smaller than a lark gets in.

Should probably get some curtains too. It's now midnight, but the sun is lurking just below the horizon, ready to pounce on me in few hours.

Mind telling to full story before starting a personal crusade  ;)?
No crusade here man, just responding to a bullcrap assertion that was made. (for the record, I am a proud Canadian and Quebecker, my family history in Quebec started in 1642 and I truly have no claim to being from anywhere else)

Anyhoo, short version...
 The province of Quebec (CANADA), struggling under a massive debt load, has recently enacted legislation which is intended to recover more of the costs associated with providing higher learning at the Post-Secondary level.

 As proposed, the provincial government wishes to increase tuition on a very gradual basis (40% over 7 years as recently negotiated, which works out to approximately 400 dollars per year) in order to provide greater capital, infrastructural improvement, increase retention of professor's and essentially make student's more responsible for the costs of receiving a high quality education.

 The problem in Quebec resides mostly with the fact that this "higher education" is not actually resulting in any long term benefit to the Quebec economy (let alone that of Canada). Quebec's GDP is dropping, wages are decreasing and student's are not applying their studies to relevant fields of employment. (eg: pursuit of degree's for personal satisfaction like getting a master's in poetry so you can work in a coffee shop)

personal anecdote: Doctors in Quebec are so short staffed that retirement is not even an option. In Laval (suburb of Montreal) ,where my family is, my grandparent's doctor at the age of 68 is still practicing because his children (who are both doctor's) both enjoyed 100% subsidized education in Quebec and then moved to New York and Saskatchewan to make more money and work less. While only 1 example, this does speak volumes of the reality that Quebec faces.

 With a downward demographic trend (in terms of population), this situation is becoming increasingly severe as costs rise to provide education to a dwindling population that is not returning a significant economic benefit to the province itself.

 As a direct comparison, after all tuition increases, Quebec student's will still enjoy the lowest rates in North America and will tend to graduate with extremely low debt associated with their education. On top of this, Quebec has a low cost of living and provides decent social services, yet these student's will raise hell about paying a little more to enjoy a privilege that can not be shared amongst all Canadian's.


 this issue has been pervasive for decades as the Quebec population has fostered a sense of entitlement that far exceeds their means. For too long, the previous generations of Quebecker's have burdened their offspring with major debts and it has now reached the point of no return. If no action is taken immediately, there will be no CEGEP (post secondary system) for future generation's.


 essentially,  Quebec is to Canada as Greece is to the European Union.   While somewhat rhetorical in my statement, the economic reality of Quebec is becoming increasingly dire. Without action now, the economic future of Quebec is unsustainable and will result in even more draconian measures that will be even further widespread amongst the entire population of Quebec.


 I fully support universal access to education but only on the grounds that the education is relevant to the needs of the population and within Quebec there is virtually no application of this basic concept. I know many of you are resident's of the Nordic countries but it must be understood that certain constructs are not easily translated across borders and social values. With the expectation of social values, there is a tandem responsibility to act accordingly social but the general sentiment in North America (let alone Quebec) is that every man must earn his keep and not be expected to provide for others'.

 Additionally, there are certain economies of scale that the European countries can employ that are not available within a large country like Canada (let alone the massive taxation that is incurred in order to provide this "free education")

 Quebec student's own Ipod's, brand new Mac computers, have high speed internet, and drive around in their car but resent paying a little more for not only their own future, but the future well-being of the province that they claim to love.

 This story will play out like every other social transition in Quebec's history. the calamity will die once this current generation gets privileges that they will not give to their very own children.

 Nuff said, Sheikyerbouti out    "Je me souviens"

Predator fishes being fed with fishmeal, produced from fishes caught in the southern pacific. We humans just feed fish we do not like to eat to these fishes that we do like to eat. That is so clever, we can now carry on another 50 years until all those fishes we do not like will have been wiped out as well. Meanwhile those fishes in norway will shit the heck into those norwegian fjords until they turn into a sewer. But who cares, I'm dead in 50 years.

It's cool, so because they pay higher over there, we should pay higher too right? It's a step backward. Seriously, rising tutions fees while there's so much more to raise fees and taxes at?

They got scorpions in Australia, so we should not complain about mosquitos right? What a flawed logic. Why should our fees be raised while it will only bring 1.2% more money to the Education Minister? Charest could make a shitload more money if he upped redevences on private corportaions, or make state corporations like Hydro-Québec and Loto-Québec that would mine our iron instead of chinese doing it for a low price? It's simple, it's easier for Charest to put money in his OWN pockets with private corps.

Also the new Law 78 is the thing that will upset most citizens in the following days/months. I can get fees for inciting people to go to a protest. The Ministre de l'Éducation, maam Courcshene also gets full power.

"9. Pour assurer la mise en oeuvre des articles 2 et 4 à 8, le gouvernement, sur la recommandation du ministre de l’Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport, peut prendre toutes les mesures nécessaires, notamment prévoir les dispositions législatives et réglementaires qui ne s’appliquent pas et prévoir toute autre adaptation nécessaire aux dispositions de la présente loi ainsi qu’aux dispositions de toute autre loi et de ses textes d’application."

"9. To assure the execution of articles 2 and 4 to 8, the governement, on the recommandation of the Minister of Education, of Loisir et du Sport, can take all necessary measures, notably to anticipate the legislatives dispositions and reglementations that do not apply and to anticipate any other necessary adaptations to the dispositions of the current law and also to all dispositions of any other law and of it's application texts"

So yeah, they can change some of our currents laws to apply articles 2, 4 to 8.

But coming from Sheikyourbouti, the guy owning a corporation and selling cars to stupid europeans I don't see how you would support a movement against the current corrupted governement. So people are talking about free scholarship, personally, I just want it to be back to what it was, as in, what students were protesting first. But with the recent police abuse this is going to grow over all the population :

Want to see police brutality, and that BEFORE the law was passed? Just go ahead :

Here, one man threw insults and a can to the officers, so of course it was justified from those officers to spray pepper all over the bar and to throw gas in the bar :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-m6F0lFsyg

The man lost tons of money and lots of people went without paying, who did the damage? Officers, so yes it will sue them.

Protests over the different months and police brutality.

 @ L'heureux,

 I don't own a corporation but I do have over 10 thousand in debt from only 2 years of college. I had to drop out because I cannot afford the tuition but i do plan on moving back to Quebec to take advantage of the low cost education. You get what you pay for and Quebec has not been paying their bills for a very long time. Blame our parents  for taking advantage of the system.


 I completely agree with free/low cost education but only if it repays the social obligation for receiving such generous support in the first place. In Quebec, there is an expectation of social service without being responsible for those very costs. these costs are now so extreme that some one will have to pay the bills and guess what, there's no money left. (this is diametrically opposite to the European social system which expects reciprocity, through national service or through forms of higher taxation)

p.s. bullshit red herring about China miners in Quebec. None of you Pure Laine want to leave Montreal to go work for a living and with a Conservative government you will not get any money from the rest of Canada for being lazy.

 There is a reason why the economic power in Canada lies in the West.  Go ahead and blame Jean Charest and the Liberal's if you want but Pauline Marois, Rene Levesque or Robert Bourassa would have made the same decision.

 Quebec is killing itself by enabling a sense of entitlement that far exceeds their means and their will to repay the social dividend.

 Dialogue will result in success, not by terrorist bombings of the Metro or burning cars and ransacking hard working business ventures. Protest in the legitimate forms is always welcome and in fact, reflects very well upon a civil society but in the case of Quebec's student protests, these protests are disrupting daily life and economic activity far in excess of any benefit you will receive in the future.

 After all is said and done, you will still have the lowest schooling costs in North America but still the Quebec sense is to keep bitching about it and not actually provide any rational decisions that will ameliorate the situation.


 Like i said earlier, you do not have the sympathy of those of us that have truly been burdened with outrageous school costs. Walk a mile in our shoes and you will soon recant your outrage.

 It's class warfare Theta,
 working class versus welfare.


 McGill university arts degree, main campus Montreal = $2492.70
 annual estimated cost of living $11 000    (but can be much cheaper)
 ~ $13 492.70 per annum
source: www.mcgill.ca

 University of British Columbia arts degree, main campus Vancouver = $4700.40
 annual estimated cost of living $16 763  (reasonable estimate IMO but does not include additional student association fees and book costs) 
~ $ 21 463 per annum
source: www.grad.ubc.ca

 In real terms of cost comparison, Quebec student's are afforded a tremendous advantage. The math doesn't lie, it's just too bad that quebecker's won't pull out their calculator's. The imbalance grows stronger when comparison is made to advanced degree's such as medicine or engineering.

I agree with you but it's sad that you see the criminals as the majority, you can't control everything, students want and always wanted peacefull protests but there's always assholes that breaking bank windows and make some smoke in a metro.

Post by: sheikyerbouti on 22-05-2012, 05:05:03
 Actually,
 you don't know what you are talking about, so let's stay relevant and on topic. The last hockey riot in Montreal was way bigger than what happened last year in downtown Vancouver.


 The cost of everything is rising, yet FECQ and the other groups are opposing a very small increase in order to recoup the losses that the Quebec education system creates on a long term basis. This problem started in the early 1980's and successive Que. government's have been too afraid to actually confront the problem.

 my post above is actually under-representative of true costs as Quebec student's enjoy major benefits that are not equalled anywhere else in North America. The protests in Montreal lost all legitimacy the minute that the Radical groups were allowed to participate as equal partner's.

p.s. : it was an act of terrorism to smoke bomb the Metro,
"do you honestly believe that incident was not terrifying to the innocent passenger's who were unaware of the true motivations of the actors involved?"

 Kudos to Charest for displaying the balls that Quebecker's usually tuck inside...

The problem in Quebec resides mostly with the fact that this "higher education" is not actually resulting in any long term benefit to the Quebec economy (let alone that of Canada). Quebec's GDP is dropping, wages are decreasing and student's are not applying their studies to relevant fields of employment. (eg: pursuit of degree's for personal satisfaction like getting a master's in poetry so you can work in a coffee shop)
This is why you have the government telling schools how many people can start studying x subject each year. Like in the past 10 years, the allowed starting places for metal & wood industry-related studies have been cut while nursing & IT have been allowed to increase. Sure it lags behind by 3-5 years, and they still allow too many humanist subjects with very little real employment possibilities, but the majority will study something that is useful for both themselves & society as a whole.


FYI increasing tuition costs may seem like a quick way to spend less on education, but it very quickly increases the difficulty of "social class movement", aka someone coming from a poor family will have an even more difficult time trying to climb the social (income) ladder. This idea was pushed through by the socialists here in the 50's & 60's and has been such a huge success (we were one of the poorest & technologically backwards nations in Europe up to the early 50's) that any suggestion to have people actually pay for higher education is immediately shot down.
Title: Re: Revolting Uniting
Post by: sheikyerbouti on 22-05-2012, 06:05:20
 I am incredibly familiar and quite jealous of the advantage imposed by Euro government's when it comes to schooling but that situation does not relate well to the issues faced by student's in North America. (of attention is the fact that your country and many other European nations demand national service in order to compensate for your demands of social equity. Additionally, European social standards impose limits on wages, hours of employment and sundry other details that are not reflected by our Laissez-faire, free market based system). eg: A doctor in Finland is probably not allowed to refuse patients, yet that is the norm across Canada (if you can even find one).

 Essentially, our system is dictated by student demands, not by nationally/ provincially imposed enrolment. Our government's let personal choice prevail over common sense decisions, hence the result that we have PHD's working for minimum wages in fields that are totally unrelated to their studies. By continuing an ongoing direct government subsidy, there is little chance for the reform's needed to make the system both affordable to the taxpayer and valuable to the student body as well as the economy at large. (how is this fair to future generations? let alone honest to ourselves?)

 As a spin off result, employer expectations are far exceeding the actual demands of various positions. (I don't need a degree to answer phones but that has become the norm here in vancouver, as well as across Canada). Another unfortunate result from this governmental position is that core areas of employment demand cannot be accomodated by the current curriculum.

 In terms of Canada, core employment needs reside in Healthcare, Engineering, and Resource extraction, yet the student bodies are demanding to be educated in frivolous subjects like poetry and classic studies that do not return benefit to the economy, distract precious teachers from vital areas of education, and create an imbalanced situation whereby the rich can truly take advantage by using their wealth to monopolize the limited classes that are both lucrative and limited in availability.

 So what does our government end up doing? they recruit from foreign nations and encourage their establishment in Canada as either part of the social elite or as an absolute social underclass. What is truly needed in Canada is a national dialogue with a mindset towards a permanent remedy that values the taxpayer, either as a janitor or as an engineer.

 The status quo is corrupt, it is incumbent upon our generation to make the necessary and relevant change. Otherwise we are dooming ourselves to failure...

According to Germany's Der Spiegel, German police shot only 85 bullets in all of 2011, a stark reminder that not every country is as gun-crazy as the U.S. of A. As Boing Boing translates, most of those shots weren't even aimed people: "49 warning shots, 36 shots on suspects. 15 persons were injured, 6 were killed."

Life is unfair, get over it.

In belgium, people where given funds to place solar panels, in wich in 5 years, you would have earned back your investment and you would recieve 330 euro per 3 months for delivering electric power to the net. On average

Then count away your electricity bill


Now thousands of families and cooperations did this.

Now they reduced these funds, the entire solar market in belgium collapsed, and anyone who does NOT HAVE SOLAR PANELS HAS TO PAY 20-40% MORE ON THERE ELECTRICITY bill


In other words, I have to pay for my neighbours there solar panels. While they earn tonnes of money

 @ Tankbuster,
 Flyboy was directing his question at you.   

 From my understanding, solar infiltration is proportionally larger in rural India (which needs the power desperately), contrasted against the largely coal powered energy that is provided to urban/ industrial regions.

 The problem with solar is that it doesn't meet the large industrial demands of say a factory but it will certainly light a family home or power a radio. (it's all about demand and solar can't even charge an Iphone or higher end electronics but it will some day)

 I have been reading about OTEC power generation (thermal difference power generation using temperature variation between Ocean surface water and deep Ocean waters) and that, to me, seems to be a very elegant, lower cost solution for the equatorial regions. Provided of course that the world will move on from coal and oil powered electrical sources. Combined with nuclear power generation, the world will never run out of power.

 All we need is the willpower and less environmental activists.
Title: Re: Revolting Uniting
Post by: Flyboy1942 on 23-05-2012, 15:05:08
The solar distribution based on demand makes sense. I had wondered if it had to do with population density and the proportional amount of surface area between rural and urban areas; thanks for clearing that up.

I remember something about hotels using a similar thermal difference to help with air conditioning. It sounds like a great idea, but I wonder if it can scale cheap enough to be a player at this time. There still has to be an economic incentive to build a power generating mechanism, and a lot of cool ideas are still far to expensive, at least for heavy commercial and industrial applications.

Which is why I support building nukes. It seriously is the cleanest, most powerful alternative energy source we have at the moment. The main drawbacks are safety and waste. Safety is already sky high with these way over-engineered plants, and extreme incidents like Fukushima simply strengthens other plants. As for waste being "a problem for millenia of future generations;" if in the next few hundred years we dont develop the heavy lift capacity to simply chuck the waste into the sun, we've done something wrong.

...

The first part is true for heavy industries needing megawatts of power 24/7. We'd need a rethinking in the way we share work on this planet for those to ever work with regenerative energies like solar power plants. They can have enough power to keep those big things running, as long as there is sunlight. Factory owners will just have to adapt to the energy supply and not the other way round. They could build factories in different countries around the globe north and south of the equator to keep up the production et voila, everyone is happy. Yay Globalism used with a good purpose! :)

The second bit isn't really true, you can charge an Iphone using solar cells.
A small charger will even do the trick it just depends on how fast you want it fully charged. As for higher electronics, the ~500sqm Solar Array on my companies roof is giving us about 30kW at the Moment (hazy day). That's about the energy we are using to power everything running on a normal working day (office applications with 4 servers, 4 workstations and 35 Notebooks).

I have been reading about OTEC power generation (thermal difference power generation using temperature variation between Ocean surface water and deep Ocean waters) and that, to me, seems to be a very elegant, lower cost solution for the equatorial regions. Provided of course that the world will move on from coal and oil powered electrical sources. Combined with nuclear power generation, the world will never run out of power.
 All we need is the willpower and less environmental activists.

Aren't the environmental activists the ones creating the willpower? :)
Anyhow, I wouldn't add nuclear power generation to that bit, as we'd also run out of uranium in a century if we'd rely on that alone as of today.

Environmental activists are also the typical white-washing guilt people, like throwing rocks at the mirror of their own. They drive more polluting cars, yet protested about pollution produced by airplanes.

My house use energy-saving light bulbs in every corner, energy saving AC with inverter (consuming only 125 watts when not condensing, 750 watts at start), and energy saving refrigerators. Not because we cared about environment first-hand (our house was built in 1994, way before global warming was a hipster thing). But we cared more about electricity bills, it's our TV & computer (500 watt PS sucking 100-350 W) that sucks most of the electricity.

Yet in 2008, when I go to Australia, I see that most houses still use the classic filament light bulb. It needs the government environmental/energy-saving agencies to send each houses free energy-saving light bulbs. I don't know why, but I get the impression that Australians do bitch a lot about environmental problem awareness than most countries I know of (I've been reading US news as well), yet they still somewhat reluctant to save energies at their own homes.

We are not better either, maybe I'm not an environmentalists. But I certainly don't want to breathe polluted air (contributed mostly from me by my car) and drink acid waters (mostly caused by my favorite subject, airplanes).
Indonesians mostly don't care about environments, all the government say about preserving the rainforests are utter bullshit. We lost a lot of natural habitat for wildlife at worrying rate, yet those face-saving corrupt politicians still debate with green peace regarding statistics and data they use to rebut the accusations.

No, you don't fucking need data and complex statistics, just go there and see for yourself and hear from the local people. Local mining companies already tried to spend some of their profits to re-plant and terraform the land after stripping it for coal. But the local government rejected the activity, and tell the people that they want to do it by themselves (citing land use plan and such) at the company's expense. When the company paid the expenses, those corrupt officials did nothing with the money. Later, when the issue arises, they just blame the company. Foreign companies are easy targets for such blaming, just like foreign countries and immigrants are easily blamed in US and Europe for their problems.

 i probably should have been more specific but small scale solar cannot provide sufficient charge on its' own to recharge high drain devices. However, when you have a 30kw facility on the roof, it will do almost everything you need. (mind you 30 kw is far beyond the reach of household finances in even the wealthiest country)

 Grid stabilization and power storage are what we need most, some promising concepts are on the horizon but it will be some time yet before these options become economically viable.

 I will have to track the name of the facility down but the Tennessee Valley Authority runs a nuclear facility that is used for constant demand but also pumps water overnight into a reservoir that can provide hydro-electricity on demand (France runs this same system as well). These multi-purpose facilities are the future IMO

 We need to save the oil for the other useful properties that it can offer us, not for simply providing a cheap combustion effect.

Part of the problem with those energy-saving bulbs is the price.

When you could still buy them, the old filament bulbs would set you back 80-90 cents per bulb, the energy-savers will set you back around $3-3.50 per bulb.


It's all a load of BS anyway, if the government was serious about saving energy, they'd ban the sale of electronic equipment that doesn't have an ON/OFF switch for starters.

I was very close to putting my widescreen Samsung TV back in the box and returning it when I discovered it didn't have one (thus it's on permanent stand-by)...


Saving the environment? Same thing, if they'd pull their heads out of their arses for 5 minutes and fix the joke that is Sydney's public transport system, they might just find people are quite happy to leave the car at home and train it to work.

And if enough people do this, given time, that dirty fucking smog cloud that hangs over western Sydney every day (the one you can see from the Lower Mountains on a clear day) might just disappear.


But that'll never happen, and that smog cloud will only get bigger when they finally stop passing the buck and start building that second airport in the Sydney Basin (the one they've been planning to build for the last 20 years)... ::)

...

Come on, this unit cost my company aprox. 50k € and it loses quite a bit of energy due to us having a flat roof, a unit of half the size is enough for a normal German household and would have a higher efficiency due to most houses here having 30Deg roofs and being orientated in North-South direction. I know of people who spent more money on a bomb shelter, so why not use the money to make yourself free from those greedy energy companies?! ^^

Grid stabilization and power storage are what we need most, some promising concepts are on the horizon but it will be some time yet before these options become economically viable.

There are quite a few good ideas, like storing the generated access power via pressurized air below the wind parks themselves, or using this power to generate Hydrogen for those times of the day without wind or sun. All you need is the incentive and will of the community, I've seen some nice plans for entire towns going into their own energy production and storage. :)

I will have to track the name of the facility down but the Tennessee Valley Authority runs a nuclear facility that is used for constant demand but also pumps water overnight into a reservoir that can provide hydro-electricity on demand (France runs this same system as well). These multi-purpose facilities are the future IMO

AFAIK every country does this with it's power plants in times of low demand, as far as they have the ability to use lakes for power storage.

 here in Vancouver a 4-pack of 60w bulbs cost around $3 and will last me a long time and also do a good job of heating up my house.

 the compact fluorescent bulbs cost about $5-6 for one bulb, they dont fit into any of my light diffuser's and the landlord won't pay to replace any of the light fixtures. CFL bulbs also make me violently ill, take forever to warm up, and do not provide a quality of light that I can appreciate.

 thank god for Chinese dollar stores that don't give 2 shits about the environment.

 Personally i don't blame the humble lightbulb at all, I blame perpetually on devices like TV's and fridges, PC's, charger devices and careless homeowner's that leave everything on.  it is 2 in the morning here and half of downtown is lit up clear as day, yet hardly a soul is awake.

@ N24,  I was referring to small households. you are talking about the cost of a car in relative terms and that kind of money can be well beyond the reach of many, many people in rich countries; let alone the outrageous cost differential when compared against the poorer nation's of the world.  Solar is a good thing but it is still economically out of reach of many people who support it.  (I would do the installation work myself but the landlord would never let that happen, let alone pay for it)

I think we had a slight miscommunication here. If you own a house in Germany, then you aren't poor. With houses ranging from 200k upwards the 15-25k for a solar array won't spoil your costing.

If you rent a house, then of course you'd have nothing of the benefits. But alas there are some nice community projects here in the area, where you can buy into a solar array (e.g. one on a big roof of a farmer in your neighbourhood) and where you receive your share of the winnings at the end of the year. This is a nice way to make solar power more affordable for everyone and to build up independent community power grids.

What happen to all those expansion of tram networks? It saddens me when I read that Sydney closed that service while the buses can't just cope with the demand, even in the downtown. It need to pass 5 buses (from Wynyard to Central through George St.) before finally catch one with space for 1 standing person.

The monorail is certainly a joke, after 3 years, I finally board one, along with me German tourists. When we stop near World Sq. the carriage lost power and the door won't open. Those people smirked. Yeah, by European standards, Sydney public transport is seriously concerning.

I might be wrong here, but doesn't german law prohibit you using the energy produced by your solar unit to power your electric circuits?
As far as I know you are, instead, required to feed the electricy you produce into the grid and get a certain fee per kW. You are only allowed to utilize your solar power yourself if you use it to produce warm water to substitute heating with gas or oil.

Sure you are right, but I meant my point in a broader sense. Atm we basically pay for our power, with the money that we earn through our solar array. So it doesn't really matter if the electrons first leave the building, what matters is that the capacity to run autonomous is there. :)

Only problem with switching it off everytime I'm finished with the TV, etc., is the powerboard that all the "permanent stand-by"  stuff is plugged into is behind a rather large entertainment unit thingy.

It's not on wheels and I have to do my best contortionist impression just to reach the board, so...but then if I was overly concerned about conserving power I wouldn't be running an overclocked PC... ;)



@sheik: Agreed, CFL "bulbs" are horrible. The halogen ones are better, though still pricey, and the best part is they are an actual bulb, so they fit anywhere the filament bulbs did.



@Zoo: A couple of months ago, I heard the monorail is going to be torn down and the tram/light rail network is going to be extended.

It never really was a success, not sure why, high ticket prices and a poor station layout I think.


Yeah, if you're lucky enough to live/work close to it, it's pricey but it works. Problem is, there's so many areas where it's just not a viable option.

I´m quite tipsy, so excuse me if my emotions are influencing my comment.

I really wonder about the music you get in the television and radio 24/7. Not a single rock, metal, electro or whatever good genre song. Just this stupid singing about feelings and some hipsters singing about love (you know, young men with a beard, hood and earrings holding a guitar). Where the fuck is real music? Haven´t heard electric guitars in quite a while on the radio. I´m forced to listen to this other shit when driving car because the radio in it is so crappy I can´t attach my mp3 player. All people I know agree that there is just shit in the media, but how does it come it´s in the charts? Are there so many 13 year old girls voting bullcrap into the charts or is the whole society going down the drain? Is it managers/labels not giving a single fuck about music but just producing shit after shit that sells to make their profits?

I don´t wanna hear Bruno Mars singing about "how much he loves a girl". I don´t want to hear milow and all this other shit. i don´t want to listen to dull Rihannas voice. This makes me angry.

I´m quite tipsy, so excuse me if my emotions are influencing my comment.

I really wonder about the music you get in the television and radio 24/7. Not a single rock, metal, electro or whatever good genre song. Just this stupid singing about feelings and some hipsters singing about love (you know, young men with a beard, hood and earrings holding a guitar). Where the fuck is real music? Haven´t heard electric guitars in quite a while on the radio. I´m forced to listen to this other shit when driving car because the radio in it is so crappy I can´t attach my mp3 player. All people I know agree that there is just shit in the media, but how does it come it´s in the charts? Are there so many 13 year old girls voting bullcrap into the charts or is the whole society going down the drain? Is it managers/labels not giving a single fuck about music but just producing shit after shit that sells to make their profits?

I don´t wanna hear Bruno Mars singing about "how much he loves a girl". I don´t want to hear milow and all this other shit. i don´t want to listen to dull Rihannas voice. This makes me angry. Today I spent a whole hour switching through the 4 radio stations available on my cars radio and noticed I didn´t stick on a station for longer than 2 mins the whole fucking way.

Don't you have some kind of "Klassischer Rock Radio" or similar in Germany? There are at least 2 radio stations with good music here in Poland. :D

Also, here you go a song about the issue.

Couldn't agree more. There are some good internet radios I heard, doesn't help you in the car though. I don't listen to radio a lot anymore, you brought up the reasons for that already.

There still is good music out there and you can't really blame the radio stations. If they don't fit the mainstream anymore, they go down. It's the society that develops and supports this shit.

I just have to look on facebook and see people posting bullshit party music and going crazy about it.
Well, I can not blame people for liking a style of music I don't like. But to me everything seems soulless, unsincere. Every song sounds as the other, it's horrible.

I think people pushing this music are female 10-20 year olds.

Don't get me wrong I don't want to attack any pop music listeners, I also like a song here and there, but generally I think it's sad that you dont get to listen that e-guitar anymore. But how many real rockbands are still out there and have really big, worldwide success ? Not a lot. So everything you get to hear is some Foo Fighters song here and there on the radio. Usually that one that has most pop-elements in it.

But there is still good music of all kind, I don't feel that everything is crap, I actually feel quite fine listening to music, just not on the radio, just not too much of that mainstream stuff. Still a sad developement to me.

Who won the Eastern European Freak Contest anyway? Let me guess, the grannies from Russia? Or Albania maybe. Bus accident Bjork, owww. I remember there being strange competitors when I was young, but man, since Dana International, it's just a freak show.

Holland shouldn't complain either, since TROS TV took over, all we are sending is F-artists that are considered huge talents in a small inbred, nationalistic and drugridden fishing village called Volendam. That is the reason you are seeing IQ-less acts from Holland that would do great in 1965. I apologize on behalf of the rest of the country. We could have sent a babe in a Cher suit (yep, such a suit) + dito background girls or some slick dime-a-dozen soul dude.

But no, they sent an indian that can't sing, and the year before that...don't even get me started. 500.000 euro's we can cut right there.

This is highly related to TV-shows like Idol.

Short explanation why I hate those shows more than anything.

The people who win/go far in those contests can only sing "by the book", and that really isn't what matters. Of course I can admire them for singing well, but that does not make a great singer/song. Lyrics and especially passion and feel are way more important.

Put an unknown Bob Dylan or Joe Strummer, or even Robert Plant in those contest. They would be laughed at and kicked out in the first round.

Still the public praise these Idol-singers, "OMG I love them!" when (I'm sure) no one of them writes their own songs, and their songs are just bland and generic, sounding exactly like the one who won the year before, only to have been forgotten within 5 years.

Same goes for ESC, except that is even worse, the way they try to exploit the concept in every way possible to make money. With all the qualifications etc.

Radio with CD player/MP3 is a very good investment, there might be a slight problem with finding one that isn't flashy, blinky and bluey. But a normal, yet functional radio has to be out there somewhere.

About ESC/Radio friendly songs etc. Its to music what COD is to FPS, the only good thing ever to come out of ESC is the Epic Sax Guy, and he is still unbeaten.

Depends on the model. I used to have a great quality one which I used to make the cockpit of my XA-200 into a movie theater (watched Slum Dog Millionaire, Mad Max, etc with the alik). Obviously if you have super-hifi stereos it's not good enough, but if you just have a stock FM radio & stock speakers, it's plenty good enough.

I'm not that hipster enough for refusing to listen to modern mainstream music. For me, if the atmosphere and situation fits, the music will be good. So every music is event-based for me.

Listening to Pink Floyd, the Beatles, Deep Purple, the Kinks, Bee Gees doesn't make me instantly hate Bruno Mars or Selena Gomez and alike.

There are many of those. Most modern car audio head units can play MP3 very well. Kenwood models are some of the examples. So you just need AUX cable, not that weird big barcode scanner-like FM transmitter.

Whatever you do, don't underestimate the history course, historical method (source criticism, interdisciplinarity) is a hard one. Most likely, if you fail that class, you probably have to do your year again. Other than that, it's going to be fun, you'll meet a lot of like-minded people for you to discuss with etc etc. Also you will get to grip with some very obscure terms such as nicolaism, defenestration of Prague, the Winter King...

Yes, the Elector Palatine of Bohemia, Frederick V, was elected king in 1619 by the protestant inhabitants, as an act of rebellion against the Austrian Habsburgs, which sparked the Thirty Years War (1618-1648). In 1620, Frederick was defeated by a Hispano-Austrian army and catholic rule was reinstigated. He only ruled during the winter of 1619-1620, hence the Winter King.

Currently I'm not sure what to do with a history degree.  My dad wants me to learn Arabic and do Middle Eastern history, which could be pretty useful for the government and such, though I am primarily interested in the 20th century and the classics.  My sister has a masters in French social history and is currently working toward her doctorate so she can be a professor, which is also something I would like to do, or maybe teach in high school.

And in Belgium, besides assassinating Theta, I am going to Bruges, Brussels, Ypres and the Menin Gate, Waterloo, down to Verdun and maybe Bastogne in France, then perhaps to Luxembourg and Germany for a bit.  An exciting 11 days back in the old world!

Only reason I am not going to study History is because of the unsecure situation on the job market. A friend studies History and Middle Eastern culture or something like that. Not sure how it's exactly called. Hes doing fine and happy with this. He was not really interested in the theme, but he is by now, because it turned out to be pretty exciting to him and he says it's indeed one of the best ways to have chances on the job market when you are interested in History and do not want to end up in an archive.

(Did a practicum for school in an archive 2 years ago. You can watch really nice pictures and get to work with great stuff, but it's totally boring and the people there were strange =D)

I am going to study Geosciences this fall. Simply because I am very interested in it and like to be out there in the nature a little. I'm gonna have Maths, Chemistry and Physics the first 2 terms, but it's fine. I'm not too talanted at that, but I'll work a lot and after that I don' have any of these subjects again. It's just needed as a basis.

Good thing is that Geoscience is really widespread, so I have a lot of choices during the studies, but probably have to switch the university half way, because each of it is specialized on some themes more than the other. But I'm fine with that. Looking forward to that time :)

We did those obscure terms in 9th grade at my high school. :P  And it would be hard pressed to find Polish history classes at american universities...very few eastern european professors even exist here (part of the reason I want to do my PhD in it).  Mostly, at least in california, history departments focus on chicano, minority, and women's studies, followed by asian studies, and european studies is sort of a forgotten realm.  Some universities are even canceling their graduate european studies programs due to lack of interest.

Well, it's Thirty years war, but you must have seen something on Habsburg and other Louis XIV's. We haven't exactly seen a lot on American history apart from the obvious War for Independence, but IIRC there will be a course in one of the following years specializing in the US. We rarely saw any real conflict in the 19th and 20th century in much detail. We didn't even see WWII and everything past that, Napoleon was just several powerpoint slides and WWI was not much better. :( On the opposing side: socialism was a subject we quite literally turned upside down.
It seems that war is a subject that is best avoided for the more recent history in European uni's, though I cannot state this with any certainty.

It's just called Flemish to quell Dutch nationalism in Flanders. The same reason why the Swedes count a pidgin dialect of Finnish called "meänkieli" as a distinct language, so that Finnish as a whole would not show up as a significant minority language. (Oh well. Even the Swedish taught in Finnish schools is not "standard" Swedish, it's a local dialect thereof.) Or why the Russians claim that the East Karelian dialect is a actually language called "Karelian".

However, why Afrikaans is then considered a separate language? Once I had a chat with a South African (natively bilingual Afrikaans/English speaker) who claimed that it's mutually intelligible to Dutch (and Flemish).

All this will be so much simpler once English finally manages to extinguish all the other silly national languages. It just needs to get rid of strong verbs and apostrophes, and then forum dwellers will already be fully fluent as theyve always writed that way.

In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c". Sertainly, this will make the sivil servants jump with joy. The hard "c" will be dropped in favour of the "k". This should klear up konfusion and keyboards kan have 1 less letter.

There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year, when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced with "f". This will make words like "fotograf" 20% shorter.

In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be ekspekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible. Governments will enkorage the removal of double letters, which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling.

It is, if you don't count in the accent and some of the words, it's pretty much all the same.

@DLF: it still leaves drug dealers, homejackers, etc..., the most invasive criminal kinds are in the clear if they managed to steal/deal/scam enough money. And every punishment under 3 years is never executed due to overpopulation in the prisons, life sentence is 30 years, unless you're someone like Dutroux or Ronald Janssen.

In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c". Sertainly, this will make the sivil servants jump with joy. The hard "c" will be dropped in favour of the "k". This should klear up konfusion and keyboards kan have 1 less letter.

There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year, when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced with "f". This will make words like "fotograf" 20% shorter.

In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be ekspekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible. Governments will enkorage the removal of double letters, which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horible mes of the silent "e"s in the language is disgraseful, and they should go away.

By the fourth year, peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" with "z" and "w" with "v". During ze fifz year, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords kontaining "ou" and similar changes vud of kors be aplid to ozer kombinations of leters.

After zis fifz yer, ve vil hav a reli sensibl riten styl. Zer vil be no mor trubl or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi to understand ech ozer. Ze drem vil finali kum tru! And zen world!

Yes. Tyrol got independend in the 13. century. Bavaria became part of the Reich at its foundation 1871. I also understand the foundation of Germany as a Prussian and Middle German initiative. Bavaria even had special rights in the early Reich and still has a own "constitution" today (it just has a symbolic value though) Furthermore, Bavarians are suspect to me even nowadays.

So, "NEIN": No fuel added ! Keep the fire on Austria  :P

Oh! He haven't made his Trololo world tour. Let's hope for the best for him :-\

Anyway,

Yeah, Austria... I wonder why such a landlocked country could become a majorpower in past Europe. I thought it was because of the Habsburg dynasty, which has vast amount of wealth and power amongst other chunk of territories across the world. Even after the German states united in 1871, Austro-Hungarian empire, despite being stripped from much of the peak of Habsburg dynasty's territory, was still viewed as European major powers, along with Great Britain, Russia, and France.

Were they:
Replacing the Ottoman empire as major powerhouse in the Balkan region, while the former empire descends into abyss?

Helped by the Danube river economic activities, just like how a tiny country like the Netherlands managed to build its economies by trading through seaports?

Hitchhiking the German hegemony, because they somewhat speak the same language?  :D

@ Zoologic

Uh, that question is in depth. THe point with the Ottomans plays a major role I think.

They nearly defeated Austria and were in front of Vienna 2 times. When Vienna falls, Austria does. In the Great Turkish War the Ottomans were defeated though and Austria was able to become a major power in Europe around 1700.

Until that, Austria only fought defensive wars against the Ottomans and after that they started to join offensive wars with Russia or something and just abandoned the plan of annihilating the Ottoman Empire, because there were also a ton of wars between the Ottomans and Russia and they wanted to keep the balance of mights and keep Russia away.

In the end the geographical position of Austria made it so important, because it was one of the 2 gates to Europe for the Ottomans. But Russia is a large country and they failed there as much against Austria. Vienna was in range for the Ottomans and so important for Austria that they always tried to conquer it.

This helped Austria to get from a regular country to a important country, since they got territory after the Great Turkish War and the respect of other nations by defeating the Ottomans or just loosing a bit territory to them, but never Vienna.

That's my thought about that. My knowledge about that is not too detailed, and I dunno how the Wars between the countries usually ended. I just know that Vienna never fell and there were a ton of different wars and Austria cam out on top in the end.

Indeed, and Austria, landlocked? Don't make me laugh. At the height of their empire, during the 18th and 19th century, Austria controlled a large part of the Adriatic coast, partly due to the Ottoman losses, as you said, and partly due to the Vienna Congress of 1815, there it was established that Austria would gain control of the regions of Venice and Milan, previously French.

'North' is an old kingdom in Westeros, thus it's written with a capital letter ('Northmen' obviously being the demonym). 'Winter is Coming' is a motto of a major house, thus written with capitals.

The cheapest liquid on store: store-brand bottled water, IDR 3,000 (USD 0.35) for 600 ml.

Literally, it is "Devil's Devil's hell's ass".

Also, the word TheTa learned (I assume it begins with "v") is really useful. It can be used for the c- and f-words, also in a less literal sense as a replacement for the d-word, h-word, and s-word, and it can change the modus of any verb into "aggresive". Also, it can be used as a sort of filler word like Native American "ugh" (which itself is a mistranslitteration of an actually meaningful word, oh well). Also, the youth use it as a sort of informal greeting, both when meeting and when parting.

EDIT: The v-word has almost as many uses in spoken Finnish as "bitte" has in German. So you can use it instead of "Yes, please", "Thank you", "Here you are", "I'm sorry", "Excuse me", "I did not understand", etc., or at least the youth seem to use it this way. Also, it can be added as a genitive-looking adjective to any noun.

Yes, "vittu" means pussy. Actually, in Old Finnish, there used to be distinct words for the genitalia of a small girl, a girl who had had her period, a girl who had become a woman, a woman who had given birth, and post-menopausal (or infertile) woman; IIRC "vittu" means the one who had not yet given birth but was no longer a virgin.

"Voi vittu" is idiomatically translated as "Oh fuck": "voi" is in this case a lament and not the foodstuff. Even if you did not know the context (which is of course helpful), "butter pussy" would be spelled as "voivittu" (compound words are written together in Finnish - yes, this means that you can make completely nonsensical but grammatically correct compound nouns infinitely long even in their nominative case).

Means the same thing and is considered to the the most vulgar swear word in Finnish. So in that sense it's closer to the c-word than the f-word.

I thought "cunt" and "pussy" both mean the same in English, except when they are used to describe a person: "cunt" is arrogant, pushy and narcissist and "pussy" a coward. "Vittumainen" as an adjective describing a person does mean the former (as a general adjective it can mean irritating, difficult and/or generally unpleasant), but there is no idiomatic or direct translation for the latter meaning because there are no cowardly Finns. However, when referring to female genitalia, "cunt" would be translated as "vittu" and "pussy", as a less harsh, perhaps "pillu" (still meaning the birthing canal), though "vittu" would not be exactly wrong either.

Idiomatically, "vittu" is also indeed equivalent to "fuck", because there is no comparable Finnish word (all direct translations used to describe only the act of copulation). Then there is the word "vitutus", which roughly means "feeling very irritated".

The first and best cultural exchange that can happens: teaching each other how to swear in own languages.

In our swearing vocabulary, the most vulgar one is equal to English F-word, not the C-word. The second one roughly translates to "brock/scoundrel/scum/knave/ruffian and such"

IIRC The only difference is the non-scientific English name for certain elements which is different from its symbol. E.g. Gold for Aurum, Silver for Argentum, Iron for Ferrum, Potassium (although we sometimes also use this one) for Kalium, Mercury for Hydrargyrum.

I also notice that English call Fluor, the element as Fluorine.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it's not so much "non-scientific" as it is modern terminology.

Who still refers to these elements by their Latin names?



Bit of WW2 news:
Quote
More than 30 Australian Bomber Command veterans will gather in Sydney on Friday before departing for London on Sunday to witness the unveiling of a new memorial by the Queen on June 28...


...Bomber crews had little prospect of surviving a tour of 30 to 35 operations and by 1943 just one in six was expected to survive their first tour of duty.

One who lived through an incredible 33 missions over France and Germany unscathed was Arthur Loudon.

Mr Loudon, originally from Goulburn in NSW, was a 21-year-old Flight Sergeant and a navigator on board a Lancaster bomber between 1944 and 1945.

He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Medal for his efforts with 12 Squadron.

"I got that medal for putting up with six Pommies for a year," the 90-year-old said.

Yes they are different. For example, Hydrochloric acid in German is Salzsäure and Hydrogen is Wasserstoff. Salzsäure is of course the trivial name, but the systematic name Chlorwasserstoffsäure is also clearly different. Elements whose latin names are used in English are mostly the same, but not always. Elements whose non-latin names are used are almost always different.

Hydrogen is Hidrogen... we are very uncreative  ;D

Hydrochloric Acid is Asam Klorida... with asam = acid, Klorida refers to Chlor, the Cl ion.
Hydrofluoric acid, which is also an acid, is simply called Asam Fluorida. We usually do not incorporate the "Hydrogen" name in any acidic Hydrogen bond compound.

Jaegerbombs or vodka & redbull! dicuss! ;)
Jägerbomb I assume means that the shot is mixed into the energy drink by the bartender, and not "dropped" as in the traditional "U-Boot" or "depth charge" drink (which is a stupid and bothersome custom anyway)? Because in some places, it means one or the other.

Once you go Jäger, you taste nothing else for the next couple of days. The stuff is extremely sticky, toothbrushing and rinsing the mouth don't help at all. Been there, done that, and energy drink late in the night means a terrible night followed by even worse headache and tiredness that would follow from normal hangover. Even gin & tonic or gin & grapefruit juice long drink are more merciful (though anything gin-based causes a hangover like no other, except red wine).

To answer your question, if I would have to choose between the two, then vodka & energy drink mixed, but I'd prefer neither.

Beer and only beer.
Decided this winter to practically stop drinking strong liquor, mainly because I'm tired of getting so hungover, and because drinking beer lets me handle my drunk much better, It's hard to get too shitfaced drunk with only beer.
I do have the occasional shot, like yesterday on midsummer I had a nubbe for example.

Wow seriously? 1€? Cheap drunk in other words.
Say a 4cl tequila shot, cheapest one I've seen in sweden would be 8€, but can range up to 13-15€ (another reason why i'm cutting down on shots, other the hangover)

The times I spend that much is when I buy shots for the whole gang... I do tend to drink a lot, but the weekend prices are 5€/beer, 5-8€/shot, and 15€/champagne (with my uni's "studying card" ;D) which leads to extreme depression the day after when checking the bank account.

My dad used to brew a lot of beer when I was younger. I'm thinking of taking up that tradition in the coming year.

When I was 16-17, me and two friends brew our own wine. We were actually allowed to buy everything needed for that, even though we were underaged. spent around 30€ in total, resultet in 30 litres 17% strong wine.
It. was. delicious.   We tried it one night, it tasted like lemonade. We got absolutely shitfaced, and after that I couldn't even feel the smell of the wine without getting sick.

 You drank it too early, young wine has this "fruity" character that may seem appealing but really only amounts to good case of rotgut. (might have been too much sulfite as well)

@ Smiles,  YAY... I thought the rules were for the entire country.

Need some help, trying to find a website I used to have bookmarked awhile ago.  I know I've posted stuff from it here before, but I can't find anything.  It was a german website, that gave full unit organization tables for the german army.  Like, it would show a company of soldiers, and would go through it squad by squad showing the official full strength numbers, weapons, etc, that a company would have, including officers, supply units, etc.  Any help?

Just found this old thing again:

Finns have more natural blondes per capita than any other nation. Fuck right off SATW.

SATW Finn is the only guy with unshaved chest.

And his friends, according to you are cigar butts


Must be a cigarette? ajappat wtf?



Finns have more natural blondes per capita than any other nation. Fuck right off SATW.

How about unshaved chest?
Who shaves his chest anyway? Must be fag...

Unshaved chest?  Ew...no thanks  :-X
That kind of confirms my theory  ;D.

No effing way. I'm definitely straight and unshaven chests are just a no-go. :-X
I bet you won't even shave your armpits... hmmmm a stinking jungle under your arm... delicious...  :-X

OT: I love SATW. Damn she gets the characters in such a great way. Australia with his blond long hair, tan and leather surfer's armband just nails the spot. ^^
Reporter stop reading the Cosmopolitan as your guide to society. And use deodorant under your armpit, shaved or not shaved.  ;D
Only thing worthwhile shaving or trimming is the area around your pointy end. Nothing annoys the ladies more then flossing with your pubic hair.

Believe me, the ladies will thank you as well when your chest isn't a wire brush.

am i the only one with no hair anywhere but the head and pubic area? D:

Believe me, the ladies will thank you as well when your chest isn't a wire brush.

Some indication of being Maschilismo is needed, besides that, since when isn't a face scrub good for the skin. Throw away your srub cream, go with chest hair!

Your chest better be hairy or have no hair at all. Never do a half-assed job.

(http://poplicks.com/images/hair-kini.jpg)

Under my stomach, it was all monkey parts. They are hairy to the point where it needs to be shaved regularly to look human.

I shave and it has been my best decision since shaving around my dick (no balls, and not everything, that itches like hell!).

Dude, don't forget the balls! A hairy sack when you put the balls to the walls is just ugly. It will only itch the first time you do it, trust me. ;)

I cut the hairs, but no clean cut...

No way am I putting a razor on the skin of my balls.  I mean, sure I've experimented with short hair there*, but not risk-of-castration short.

*didn't think to much of it, probably won't do again.

but the wimmenz don't want to find a hairy pair down there

<rolls eyes>  I've never cut myself before, it's safe, trust me.


So my current girl wanted me to shave under my arms and I did that. Wasn't that much of a problem. She also stated that she don't mind me being unshaved down there. So I don't do that.

For once I had a girl that explicitely didn't like men to be shaved down there. She said she'd otherwise have the impression to be with a little boy.

None ever asked me to be shaved down there, but might be they just didn't dare to say it. I can't say for sure. However, I'm already 34 years old, so I don't know about the later generations.

However I don't see big problems, as my pointer itself isn't hairy anyway. So I get no major setback from that.


What bugs me much more is women that want to change my underwear. When they do that, I'm off. I'm wearing cotton boxershorts and I could never ever wear regular panties. I'd go crazy in those.

Post by: Butcher on 30-06-2012, 11:06:05
But the FW 190 got introduced in 1941, BF 109 in 1937. One could think that the numbers especially after the Battle of Britain (about 800 BF 109s destroyed) and the battles all around Europe, shifted more and more towards the FW 190 as the war progressed. A number of BF 109s got lost because of the landing gear issues (wheels mounted under the middle of the plane instead of the wings). I once read that the BF 109 was considered outdated by late ´42 anyway. So the number of those two planes available at the same time should be roughly equal later in the war - at least not as different as the two numbers (20000 and 33000) would let you think.
Title: Re: Revolting Uniting
Post by: THeTA0123 on 30-06-2012, 11:06:05
Well the Me109 was a nice plane but lacked armour, operational range and ye, the landing gear issue.

1/3 of all ME109 where involved in landing accidents of wich 10% where completly destroyed

Also alot of FW 190's where assigned to defend germany against bombers.


But a Me109... During testing they found out that a .50CAL bullet had no problem in going in the engine block and coming out at the other end. It was a nice plane, but like the spitfire, not so well armoured.

It remained in production because of the low cost of these aircraft methinks.

The Me-109 has better performance in higher altitude compared to FW-190 with radial engines (series A). Thus the 109 was kept in production, and even upgraded with DB-605, a more powerful engine with better supercharger, making the plane comparable to late-war adversaries.

Moreover FW-190 has a problem with heat. Although a radial engine, it needs an extra reciprocating fan to be installed in front of the massive BMW 801R to cool it down. Installing a bigger supercharger will only increase its weight and reduce reliability. Thus it can't fly high to intercept Allied bomber formations, let alone its escorts. But then FW-190 got new engine, it was called FW-190D, the long nose Dora, which is fitted with Jumo inverted V-12 engine. It became perfect. The Jumo (forgot the serial) can produce up to 2,000 HP at boost, enabling it to match the latest American fighter. However, its aging airframe design from 1941 limits its top speed. It can't easily catch or  outdive Mustangs nor Thunderbolts.

Basically Butcher, as far as I know and can tell, the Bf109 and Fw190 were about even numbers after 1942/43 or so.  The Bf109 never stopped getting upgraded through the G and K models, and the Fw190 got a rebirth with the D long nose.

I heard that since FW-190D entered production, Me-109 was like completely replaced from front line duties. It was into short-range interceptors or relegated into just "airbase guards."
190D was still at its best at medium altitudes at the most (which of course was an improvement over the 190A which was at its best at low altitudes). In exchange for higher top speed and climb rate and better performance at altitude, the D gave up a lot in roll rate and turn rate. And in the end, the current 109 model (K) was still faster at altitude. 109 was built as a high-altitude interceptor from the start, too bad that its aerodynamics didn't allow much in the way of heavier weaponry (apart from upgunning the engine cannon from 20 to 30 mm caliber and the cowling guns from 7.92 to 13 mm  - which despite similar barrel caliber still had only about half of the kinetic energy of the American .50 BMG round) - external weaponry made 109 into another bomber-destroyer that needed fighter cover to survive actual fighters (like the Sturmbock 190's). Also, the airframe was at the end of its evolution: the supposed next steps, the 209-II and 309, were epic fails that were actually inferior to the original 109G/K and the 190D.

All the improvements in 190 meant that the D was no longer completely worthless above 6 klicks, but the 109 still performed much better there. Also, the American fighters they were supposed to encounter there were actually optimized for high-altitude flight. Notably the Jug became the more manoeuverable (relative to other fighters) the higher up it went (when the absolute area of wings and control surfaces finally overcame the problem of wing loading, and the wtfhueg turbocharger could shine). In the East, though, there it would have made actually sense to replace the 109 with 190D as the fights never really went up above medium altitudes, being usually low (and what with there being the F and G ground-attack variants also in heavy use there). Not that it would have made any difference against the wtfhueg numbers the Soviets had to throw against them, either (also with the sneaky Murricans producing a low-altitude optimized strike fighter, the Kobruysha, for the Soviets).

True.  109 was undergunned to begin with, and like I said, it was not possible to add firepower significantly without hampering performance (no space in the thin wings or the thin fuselage).

190A was superior to 109 at low altitude, and had superior firepower and payload. 190D was superior to 109 at low to medium altitudes, and had superior firepower and payload. So East Front and Jabo duties and low-level interception should have been left to them altogether.

However, for the still-missing high-altitude interceptor - that would have had ample firepower and could also survive the escort fighters - there was actually a better solution solution than 109 or 190 that had superior performance and firepower already in '43, but we all know how that ended up: the dear old Gefreiter ordered the 262 be turned into a piss-poor bomber (bombs dropped at twice the designed speed from a design without bomb sights does wonders to accuracy, never mind that the bomb pylons screwed the centre of gravity and hampered the performance due to too high load, and the range was insufficient for a bomber to begin with, and that the 190 was infinitely more surviveable and suitable for the Jabo role) which took over a year and even after that the bulk of 262's went to converted bomber units, not fighter wings. GG.
Title: Re: Revolting Uniting
Post by: Zoologic on 02-07-2012, 12:07:35
FW-190 was originally designed as a true fighter from the birth. Kurt Tank envisioned of all things necessary to make a true air dominance fighter back in 1941. While 109 is born as a racing plane, trophy grabber, or science toy. Thus it suffers similar things like all other racing planes do, such as Spitfire: limited range (small fuel tank due to limited space), high wing loading design (to improve performance at high speed), lightweight airframe (weakly armoured), and cramped cockpit (poor vision).

Bf-109 originally had two 7.92 mm MG installed in the engine cowlings. But then it received additional 20 mm cannons installed on its wings, making it slightly thicker, and taking spaces for the radiator heat exchanger, so it was installed completely outside of its wing (Bf-109E). Cannon rounds will scatter when fired at low speed, the aircraft will buffet from the recoil. Same thing happened with Spitfire and its Hispano Suiza 20 mm cannon, thus the BS attacking maneuver done by Ben Affleck in Bay's Pearl Harbour movie is pretty difficult to execute. Then later, the designer of Bf-109 simplified all of the gun layouts, beginning with F-series placing the main cannon in the nose, with the barrel running through between the V-shaped space of the DB-600 engine series cylinders.

I can understand how difficult it was for German designers to work with the already available fighter designs. It was quite a challenge already in 1944, with the appearance of Griffon and high-altitude American fighters.

Were they really superior to their counterpart from the allies? I can't say that these German fighters have a definitive superiority to be a "punchline" winning criteria for air combat. They do have some advantages, like maneuverability, climb performance, but some are only marginal.

One question though: I read that contemporary German fighter plane engines were rated at typical late-war max power of between 1,400 to 1,800 HP. But they were only achieved when using boost such as MW50 and alike, unlike the allied airplanes power output rating, which were achieved without using any boost or other temporary measures like water injections or methane injection. Is this true?
Title: Re: Revolting Uniting
Post by: Kelmola on 02-07-2012, 14:07:05
I agree that 190 was a fighter and 109 a sports plane with guns (much like Zero). As to the MW50 and why Allies did not require it...

A litre of gasoline contains the same amount of energy, no matter what the octane rating. However, high-octane gasoline takes higher pressure and temperature to ignite. German synthetic fuel (that they were forced to use late in the war) was commonly only about ~85 octanes (roughly comparable to 80/87 rating) or even less: Allied engines commonly used 100+ octane fuel, with some extreme examples like P-38 Lightning requiring 130+ octane (115/145) fuel to run properly.

What happens is that if you raise the boost pressure too high for low-octane fuel, it will prematurely detonate and actually use part of its energy working against the movement of the piston, a phenomenon called "knocking". The lower the octane rating, the earlier the detonation and the more energy is wasted and converted into extra heat. The MW50 (50/50 mix of water and ethanol) was used to overcome this temporarily by cooling the engine and thus delaying the detonation, so that high boost pressure could be used (temporarily) with the low-octane synthetic fuel. And here's the kicker: MW50 was only effective up to about 6 klicks of altitude, after which it starts to lose its edge. Now where have I heard that before, surely that is not the altitude at which a certain fighter started to lose its performance?

There was an alternative, the GM-1, which car tuners of today know as NOS, ie. liquified nitrous oxide, which instead increases the amount of oxygen in the fuel, acting more like an "extra turbo", and that worked at any altitude and for all octane ratings. Which is why it was used in Ta-152H (high-altitude interceptor variant of 190, hint hint) alongside with the MW-50. The Ta-152 does also prove that the 190 design still had much more development potential left than 109. However, GM-1 had negligible effect in low altitude compared to MW-50, and it was really complex to install dual system, and when not in use, both added significant weight.

What this means is that Allied engines were designed for continuous higher boost without the need for extra gimmicks because they had high-octane fuel available in large enough quantities.

So if you ever wonder why IL-2 Sturmovik (the game) has underperforming American (and to lesser extent, British) fighters, especially for the late-war designs: dear Oleg only trusts "neutral" sources, in this instance, German (and in some cases, Soviet) test flight reports of captured American planes. Which obviously had very poor performance when running on wrong kind of fuel, but since factory test flight reports and first-hand experiences by American pilots are all untrustworthy propaganda according to Oleg & co...
Title: Re: Revolting Uniting
Post by: Zoologic on 02-07-2012, 15:07:29
Yeah glad that I played Il-2 mods. The airplanes are much more comparable now. The unreliability of Soviet planes, the relatively unresponsive American planes in low alt, etc can be clearly felt in the HSFX mod.

And that higher octane rating fuel is also one factor that I already suspected but not yet certain on the issue. Thanks for the explanation Kelmola.

Which obviously had very poor performance when running on wrong kind of fuel, but since factory test flight reports and first-hand experiences by American pilots are all untrustworthy propaganda according to Oleg & co...

In many petty debates among sudden experts, people often argued how one side is superior to others in very wrong sense, generally fueled by Hollywood and anti-Hollywood point of views. As far as I understand it, Hollywood (and History Channel to some extent) tries to portray Mustang to have all-round superiority over the opposing fighters. So I guess Oleg Maddox tried to avoid that notion heavily, in order to get favourable opinion from a strong "anti-hollywood for no reason" community of hardcore gamers.

I too once held into this kind belief and school of thought, which is heavily influenced by the slightly incompetent and the only local aviation magazine (that time), "so-called realistic" video games, Hollywood and anti-Hollywood stance. But first hand experience and deeper involvement in my hobby community has taught me different point of view, new lessons and better understanding in how to actually compare stuffs.

I really like when we can discuss thing the way they are, not with some fanatic hot heads coming from whichever obvious school of thought.

 it's the constant relation to Lesbo's that I find retarded. I think Theta is repressed and wants to get a sex change (secretly wants a vagina of his own).

Not sure about that. Often I prefer female company over male company as well. Still, I don't want a vagina nor do I want to change my sex at all. Usually I accompany heterosexual females, which indicates that Theta might be as weird as I am, just with another streak.

I am actually wondering why friendship between "traditionally behaving" straight men and "butch" lesbians is not more common, after all, it should be easy to socialize with people who behave and think more similarly. I mean, friends are friends, and if you consider her to be "one of the boys", what's the problem?

It's only a problem if you have delusions of grandeur and actually believe that the storylines in your average porn would make sense, and you would be The Chosen One who converts her to at the very least bi, or with whom she (and usually her girlfriend, too) wants to experiment.

I just assume most lesbians hate men, which is why they drifted over to catch for the other team (you can't swing without a bat :P).

/Edit: On the other hand, that's probably just how Hollywood likes to depict them. Either that, or as manhungry sluts who just happen to like squish mitten just as much as they like pork sword.

Most butch are born from the ultra feminist line. But some like my friend is because she hangs around boys too much and watch porns that subjects girl too many times. It seems that not all of them "are born that way." She still likes girly boy (metrosexual and all of that kind), however.

...Because all lesbians are girls who where once raped by men, right?

I admit....One of them...was.. And she was terrified as fuck for men. Took me alot of effort to get her to accept me around her in a 5 meter radius but if you know her story :(  sad sad sad...


And the first couple i met, wich all started it.....just broke up...I cant believe it.

Normally, people will find more comfort hanging around honest people who are open and have "nothing to lose." It is better that way, at least in western world, they put some care into making their feelings known and be honest about it. I think those people who have been victimized brutally and realize that they have some sort of social stigma feel that they have nothing to lose when going on in any kind of relationships.

In Asian sphere, people simply put too much effort to look nice and cool in their own standards. They rather stay away from people when in bad mood.

But an average guy here would say "I'm an asshole, because I am slightly different consonant than awesome." It's different, and we rarely pity ourselves, that's why I like it here.

People who put "Open minded, Simple, Cheerful, Likes Nice People, Aquarius, Sanguine, Serious, etc" in their description sounds far less than a fake to me. Everybody has got to be an asshole at least a hundred times in their life, however nice they really are. I lost count on how many fuck ups I did, but I never fake it: as law abiding citizen, helpful, productive member of society I am, I never claim to be "a simple nice guy who happens to love playing historically accurate FPS game"

@ Theta,

Starbuck's is shitty coffee. Don't waste your money on that crap when you can go to that American store and buy good things like Jiffy peanut butter and Kraft dinner.
I am going this friday to the store

And i love starbucks   ;D

Ive got to ask, Thoronder: are you gay?
* EXTRA EXTRA Read all about it! *
New form of Gay-Dar discovered! Anyone who posts pictures of Capybaras must be of the homosexual persuasion!

If anything you lose your manhood by posting those pictures, and we all know how manly bears are so.. no.. thats not what made me ask.

 talking about 'manly bears' opens a whole can of worms that you may not want to be part of...

 Inside joke that I am positive Mudra will enjoy.


 @ theta,
drinking mud or gasoline has the same effect as Starbuck's. I have only been to Scotland but I choked when I saw how much they charge for what amounts a cheap cup of brown water. Seriously, make your own or support a local coffee shop that actually takes pride in what they serve and even knows how to spell "large" on the side of a cup.

hehe, I never told you what to drink.

 i just voiced the opinion that Starbuck's coffee is shite. I live in Vancouver, so we got tired of Starbuck's around here well before you ever heard of it.

 Although, I will say that the original shop in Seattle has a certain charm. It has a wooden mermaid with exposed breasts (quite risque when they first opened). It's right by the Pike Place market and the location is one of the neatest places that I have ever visited.

 Just don't eat outside of Ivar's, the gulls will tear you apart.

Hi, I think the spiders begin amassing on your location. It seems the number keeps on growing.

Or is it the summer effect? Keep in mind, that spider species mostly affected by the summer are commonly burrowing ones, which tries to escape the heat on the ground by venturing into cooler location (normally inside an insulated house). In Australia, this kinds of spiders are usually the most poisonous ones, e.g. Sydney Funnel Web spiders. Luckily, despite staying over a year in the northern suburbs, I never met any of those.

I've noticed primarily grass spiders for the moment, fortunately.

We do get black widows and other fun things, like vinegaroons (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vinegaroon)

The bug guy came by for his biyearly spray of the house, so that ought to put a stop to the spiders.
On the brightside, my fear of spiders has considerably lessened since this started.

On a related note to the vinegaroons, one summer a few years back, we had a swarm of them in the backyard.


Hundreds upon hundreds of these things, dead in the pool, and then hiding elsewhere, not a fun summer.

I don't know about Belgian Starbucks, but Austrian Starbucks tasted like sugary death. It felt like we were breaking some unwritten law when we went to Starbucks in Vienna, a city with amazing coffee culture, but we just had to try what all the fuzz is about. I found no answer that question.

As for Coca-cola, the only country that doesn't use the original recipe is the country that the recipe came from; USA. They use corn syrup as sweetener instead of Sucrose.

When hiring them you need to wait for the moral bar to rise, I suspect you did not wait and sent them into battle straight away. This is to represent the gathering of supplies, troops, etc. It's the bar next to the troop numbers, wait until it's green.

But wasps are naturally aggressive, aren't they?

I meet one fucking scary hornet one day. It looked like a toy robot because of its red eyes. Killing them with electric flyswatter takes a lot of time and it looks like a bug abuse (poor stupid hornet, but they just got lost).

(http://sclick.net/cool%20gadgets/coolest-newest-fun-high-tech-gadget/00/latest-fun-top-cool-new-high-technology-gadgets-mosquito_racket.jpg)

Even using the highly amplified one. This bugger seems to home at heat sources, striking light sources, my PC, and everything that emits heat. It produce quite a noise, so I decided to end its suffering before something broke or gets allergy reaction. Squished it flat.

So, would anyone of the devs or related personnel mind to delay the patch for one week?
I was actually planning to buy Combined Operations today to be able to play me sum DayZ.
Else I have to play both and need to go get me some infusions at the hospital, cause I won't have enough time to drink or eat this weekend.

Btw, is the passworded installer not going to be released early? I thought it always came a few days early the last patches.

Edit @Zoologic: I don't know about Philippine wasps, but for the european species it is safe to say that common wasps are far more aggressive than hornets, even though the latter look more ferocious. They're actually pretty cool and chilled and won't usually sting you unless you a.) swat them or b.) they get squeezed by grabbing them, stepping onto them or pushing them against some surface.  :)

No, not really. The ones in Finland rarely bother you as long as you don't get too close to their nest. Finnish hornets are even calmer.

Well, I wouldn't mind a release delay. Somebody from Australia is going to check out my work for the entire next month. And they have quite an appetite for local food. Spent the entire summer accompanying expats from Denmark, Germany, UK, Japan, touring their companies. Haven't played FH2 for like a month already.

About the hornet, I met this one:

http://www.vespa-bicolor.net/main/vespid/vespa-tropica.htm

They are about as big as your thumb.
It entered my room from unknown location, got lost and start striking objects and producing thunky noises. It appears aggressive by repeatedly buzzing over you at close range (perhaps broke their sensories when striking one of the objects). BTW, it is in Indonesia.

Wasps are okay, quite neutral if you ask me. They like to buzz around you but as long as you don't smack them with anything they wont hurt you. Same story for bees and their big bro.

And spiders.. I rarely kill spiders. I see them all the time but just let them be. And if there's like a huge one I catch it and throw it outside. Or smash it, depends on how gentle I handle the piece of paper.

You can tell by the distance between anus and genitals. The female has a shorter distance and the genitals look like a small blob. The male genitals look like two blobs, a few millimeters apart. I had to look this up recently to decide which of our kittens we wanted to keep. Cat genders have always been a mystery to me, but luckily there's Internets for that sorta thing.

The kitten is now about 2 months old and is basically trashing my parents house, one vase, table cloth, curtain and carpet at a time.

I had the A/c on and was watching Centurion last night. The movie ended at around 2337 and as the credit rolled, I started to hear this kinda snapping noise.  I took my headphones off (Sennheiser, the best kind!) and turned the lights on to find that:   

1. The a/c unit was leaking water

and

2. The water was dripping down onto a fucking wall outlet.    Evidently, the designer of this place is a fucking brain surgeon.


When the lights went on and I had noticed all this, I also noticed a spider. I killed it.

Had to turn the electricity off, dry the place off, and take out my 3DS charger that was in the lower outlet.

Theodolphus "Theo" Palmer. He is 3 months old, and a Maine Coon mix, that I adopted from the Harbour Animal Shelter. Unfortunately, not all is roses...a day after we adopted him, he has come down with a cold, complete with fever, sneezing, and not eating. We took him to the vet today who gave us antibiotics, as well as administering a double dose of antibiotics whilst we were there, plus a subcutaneous injection of fluids. She said that it should be cleared up in a week, but that if not, it could take a much more serious turn.... :(

Yes, they are.  Me, my bf, and my dad all thought Theodolphus was a rather regal sounding name, and very fitting for him.

And some small good news.  We found online that cat colds can be helped by giving them a humid environment, to loosen mucus in their nose, and get them eating again.  So we ran the shower hot for a few minutes, and, after not much happening cept me injecting in another syringe of water for him, he got off my lap, walked to his food bowl, and promptly devoured half the food.  He didn't have any water, so we're still worried, but this is a very good step. :)

I got him at the pound, I've never been a fan of adopting from breeders.  I'd rather save a kitten from a rough life that could end in death, than a kitten from a breeder that will eventually find a home for sure.  My mom also adopted a kitten, Molly, who is generic domestic cat.  She is healthy but we have to be careful now that she doesn't catch this cold.  We think Theodolphus caught it whilst at the pound.

Also, he is feeling better already :)  When my dad got home, he was going to remove the drawer from above the shelf that Theo likes sleeping on in the bathroom, so that he has more headroom.  So we took Theo out, and lo and behold, he started wandering a little. He went out into the hallway, used his scratching post a bit, played with a wand toy slightly (mostly just tracked it waving around with his eyes, but did a few tiny grabs at it, much better than yesterday when he was just ignoring them).  He then wandered into my room and lied on my pile of dirty clothes.  I let him there for a bit, then decided to try and give him a few kitty treats.  He was hesitant at first, but ate all 3 that I gave him, then mewed and hopped up on my couch, where he still is. :)

We're gonna do some more syringe feeding, but also try some wet food with him later tonight.  Plus, he needs his meds at around 9:00.  So hopefully all will be well, and he'll continue to get better tomorrow.

Wow, so this guy can quickly learn how to use scratching post after a few days at new home.

I really like his fur pattern, the mackerel/tabby pattern fits Maine Coon pretty well, especially when he grow big after time. He will look badass someday, like a lynx or mountain lion perhaps.

But for me, I prefer Ragdoll or Raggamuffin which you couldn't easily found on shelters. But any cat with tuxedo coat is great for me.

Both cats that I've ever had as pets in the family were orange females, which is supposedly rather rare for domestic shorthairs.  My old cat was intelligent but anti-social outside of a few people, my current cat is very playful and sweet but a huge ditz who constantly rolls of tables and such.  I love cats.

Good that you adopted from a shelter VM!  My mom volunteers at a local cat shelter and sometimes I go too, to help get kitties adopted.  Fortunately it is also a no-kill place now.

Actually, he learned in seconds.  When I introduced him to it, he didn't know what to do.  Then I raked my finger nails on it.  He immediately copied me, and figured it out then and there.

 I have had about 30 cats in my lifetime and believe me, they come in all kinds of colours.

 Remember, they eat when they want to and drink only fresh water. If you are really concerned, just turn a housetap to a trickle or leave the toilet seat up and make sure his water bowl is changed 2 - 3 times a day. (clean dish but no soapy taste/residue)

 You can also try a bowl of milk or cream but only served chilled and in a clean dish.

 A great tip to prevent them from scratching up stuff that is verboten is to firmly squeeze their paws when you catch them until the cat freaks out a bit and tries to run away. (they will learn quickly, even the stupid ones)


 And don't worry about the cold, they (cats) get sick like humans do. if the animal goes away to hide (I mean really hide, like under the hot tub or in the attic away from reach), then you need to worry because cat's can sense doom. As long as they are social, you are A-ok.
Title: Re: Revolting Uniting
Post by: VonMudra on 17-07-2012, 16:07:43
Actually, at first, he WAS hiding, in the bed he had under a shelf, very secluded.  He went there when we first brought him home, as a hidey hole, and then started going there a lot, and when he got sick, he refused to leave unless we picked him out.  The vet said we caught it early, but that there still was a chance of it getting serious, as he had a very high fever (he had 100.5 when we adopted him, and 103.5 when we brought him in).

The good news is, he's eating now, drinking, and is being social.  He slept in my bed with me all last night, and this morning ate some food and drank.  So he's at least feeling better.  Still gotta continue antibiotics and probably water syringes if he doesn't drink enough, he has yet to use the litterbox since saturday night.

 Like in a church belfry, 100 feet from the nearest human.

 it's good you took him to the vet, follow his advice but remember this is an animal and most Vets don't know what to do other than give them another shot and wait for improvement.

 The animal kingdom is tough and any housepet that makes its' way into our homes has got a much better life than they could have had anyways. Circle of life yadda yadda yadda...

Good to see you got a new cat vM, we did the same when our cat died.

Also: had my wisdom teeth removed yesterday under complete narcose. Now going about with a fowl taste of blood in my mouth. Benefit: ice cream for dinner. Drawback: pain, big pain killers, and mouth wash strong enough to blow your socks clean off

Maybe 5 minutes in, I was hardly able to eat any at all, and my top ramen had turned pink  ;D

I have 4 wisdom teeth, and one (lower left) is impacted.  Visiting the dentist in a week or so, last time I saw him, he said it could wait since it causes me no pain.  Probably will end up with it removed though.

If it does end up with removing, just hope for a good anaesthetic guy. I have had 3 removed under full narcose, I was K.O. in 5 minutes.

Had them removed some 2 years ago, but didn´t get full narcose. The actual process was okay, the only thing that was weird was that, even though i felt no pain, I felt the pressure in my mouth. Very freaky feeling.
The time afterwards was bad, though. I was on pretty strong pain killers, my face was swollen, I constantly had the feeling of blood in my mouth and wasn´t able to eat much.
On the plus side the army paid for it and I had around two weeks of sick leave. :D
Title: Re: Revolting Uniting
Post by: Surfbird on 19-07-2012, 13:07:50
Yea, have bad memories about that. Got them removed 3 years ago and it went quite bad for me. Had a full narcose and when I woke up I felt really bad. Had all the pain you guys ahd as well probably, but something went wrong.
The doc accidently stimulated one major nerve, which led to a the nerve being damaged. I had a numb feeling at the right half of the chin due to that. They said the sense is gonna come back, but it's numb until today ;) It's not totally numb and I got used to it. When I tip with my finger on it I clearly feel the impact but it feels weird. But as I said, I got used to it and it does not really bother me. At the beginning it was quite weird and disturbing though.

So, i need some woman advice. What should i do.

I have been with my girlfriend for almost a year and a half. a few months ago she started getting really jealous about another female friend of me. A very good friend where i used to chat online with for hours on end. We never met much in real life though but that was no that important for us, i just liked chatting with her. Now, she started harassing my friend, trough facebook first, then by calling her. After 2 months my friend was so tirred of it that she just removed me and no longer chats with me out of fear.

So tell me internet, what should i do? I like my girlfriend, but what she did was a very mean thing in my opinion and i don't know what the best reaction would be.

Fortunately I´ll have much more time during the summer, so I´ll hit the track again.

Right after basic training I was pretty fit and fortunately I still have a certain level of fitness even with a lack of regular training.

I decided to nickname the spider "Gigantor" after the film Night at the Museum, partially because he is a large spider and because he only appears at night. No signs of him tonight though, but I'll be looking for him to pop up somewhere.

I don't like spiders either. The problem: I don't want to kill those poor dudes, so I try to put them outside which can be tricky sometimes. I'm not afraid of them but I don't like them to walk on my arm or something.

My scariest experiences with spiders took place in Australia though. I remember finding one's hull which was apparently recently dropped on a cupboard at my exchange students home. Quite huge and hairy. Then found the real one. In my backpack, flat like a flounder between my notepad and the inside of the backpack. And although it was so flat, it still moved.

Then there was a medium sized totally orange one in the bathroom of the bungalow village we were at. Looked dangerous lol.

And then finally in the bungalow we lived, a funnel-web spider in a fissure of the doorframe. Huge and a serious danger.

After being in Australia I got a bit cured from being afraid of German spiders though^^

Just native spiders. I saw one on the garage door this spring and really.. Two fat thumbs wouldn't do it. Largest spider I ever saw. Yet I must've been the largest human he ever saw, he ran off.

there are 2 of m but its the best picture i could find, but you get an idea how big (small) our greatest national bug killers are (as i am aware of).

I dont kill spiders either, i normally get rid of anything unwanted by casually throwing them outside. If its too big my cats will take care of it or after a third warning, and when i need to get up, they are usually in deep shit.

I went on a 5 mile run today, and one of the usual paths that I take had turned into a swamp with all the rain that Ohio has had recently.  I had to stop every 5 seconds because I kept running into spider webs.
Now I am no arachnophobe, actually I kinda like spiders and I never kill them, but there is still some element of primal fear in me so that when a large spider is suddenly plonked on my face I freak out a little bit.

Never was for anime but i liked the historic aspect of this anime. Every WW2 nation is included. The weapons are authenthic, the striker things are based after WW2 era planes and every girl or witch, is based on a real WW2 ace/pilot.


It spanned 2 seasons. Appearntly alot of new mangas where produced but i cant read that shit.

I know that feel bro, if Belgian taxi drivers are anything like the Turkish ones then were all screwed. The worst part about this was I was meters away from hitting a Porsche Cayenne and a BMW X6, had I hit those it would've been a €250,000 accident and I would've been screwed lol. Thank jeezus for the tree.

I agree on the taxis driving like nut jobs in Turkey, Italy, and Spain. I think Italy might actually have been the worst. The first time I was in Rome, some football team (Roma?) had just won a tournament or something and everything was just chaos.

I think I'd not want to drive a car in Turkey, sounds like mortal danger, lunatic (taxi-) drivers and chaos :D

But isn't it the taxi drivers fault if you'd have hit the BMW or Porsche ?

At least here it's the fault of the ramming car because it obviously did not stick to the minimum distance you must have to the car in front of you.

Buy an old Volvo :D. 15 kilometers of finest Swedish steel, The only thing able to even scratch these is another Volvo, or at least a MBT. Seriously though, i think there are plenty of cars that would allow you to survive harsh turkish driving environment.

Indeed, hatchbacks aren't cutting it anymore, they get messed up even at slow speed collisions, the chassis of the Golf has literally bent at the front apparently :D I talked to the X6 owner, apparently he got damage from the taxi but blamed the taxi on the whole thing, so me and him ended up being friendly and decided to blame the damn taxi together ;D Thinking about an Audi, unfortunately I can't buy a tank lol.

I am curious, do any of you do pointless things when you are bored? For instance, at my last night shift I usually finished my work at 3AM but i have to stay till 6AM. At 4AM train drivers start to arrive, to give them some help I always start up all 5 train locomotives and drive them till just in front of the stop light so that they are all nicely lined up. I put the heater on in the carriages and put the lights off with the doors locked.

Yes, I do. When I'm finished with my work, I go to the other fellas and help them getting their work done. That got me into foreman position easily and quickly. Nowadays, I don't leave before the last employee has left, just to make sure everything is alright. Plus: Most fellas like me already for helping them.

Yeah, we do that as well most of the time, we start and finish together.
I did notice that I barely have to do dirty work nowadays, and my promotion is already approved even though officially I still have to wait a year before I should have been able to even apply for it.

The general mood at word is very good though, we have a new big boss, a woman, fun as hell and only 1 year older then me. And my direct boss and his superior are my age and we have been out drinking a few times already.

If I'd stay awake that long I'd probably suffer a heart attack. And after that, I probably would find no sleep another 2 days due to having adjusted. And once I'd find sleep, I'd probably never ever get up again. I'd sleep for 4 days, I bet.

However, the human body takes its downtimes. At some point you believe to be awake, but you're not. Or at least half of your brain is asleep. That is when you can't remember your thoughts or actions in the past five minutes. Because there were probably none.

For me, it is often hard to fall asleep, so I didn't expect myself to fall asleep unwanted. But since I once fell asleep on the highway, driving 140km/h on the left lane, I know better and take precautions. I found myself waking up while feeling refreshed, because there was this bright red light in my eyes. The car in front of me was hitting the brakes.

Currently enjoying the festivity holidays, starting from Friday 17 Aug (our independence day) up to next Thursday 23 Aug. Got no plan to go, but enjoying the now less crowded city of Jakarta. Every migrant workers are moving back to their hometowns, gather with their close relatives in their parent's home. An approximate reduction of 5-6 million people, so I can have Jakarta for myself and some of my friends.

So look what we got here. That's the wall opposite to my bedroom door. One of the bigger ones I've seen in the past and I don't feel well at all about that thing. I don't like to kill it but I don't see how I am able to grap it and carry it out either :D

I think I'll wait till next morning. But when it's gone by then I have a huge problem.

It looks weird by the way. It got something like antennas in front of its head. Uaaargh, anyway. I won't touch that thing, I would need some kind of box if I save it...So what should I do when I have to get rid of it next morning ?

EDIT: I leave it alone 5 minutes and IT'S GOOOOOONE. Searched everything where it could hide - nothing D:, NOT gonna sleep well at all now lol. Fuckin beasts from hell.

I killed it in the end, for the sake of the realm. He was sentenced to die; even spiders need to know modesty. Acting above his rank. He was executed swiftly, by me of course. He who passes the sentence must swing the newspaper.

I woke up from my phone alarm and just as I opened my eyes I saw an attack spider crawl from under the bed up next to my pillow. I just flicked it down onto the floor, rolled over and went back to sleep.

TL;DR You guys are pussies (unless the spiders have strong venoms or some shit).

There's a either a common lime (linden, or Tilia in Latin, not the tropical fruit) or a small-leaved lime (can't tell them apart) growing right next to my balcony (a whole row of them has been planted in front of the apartment block), I don't even have to reach in order to grab the nearest branch, the crane flies most likely come from there.

On the other hand, I get to watch a family of half-tame red squirrels that do all kinds of fun and cute stunts, they really like the limes and the cover the leaves offer in the summer. Also, people most probably either feed them or forget food on the balcony, because they patrol the balconies as well, and once I had to chase the little fella out, it was sitting on my sofa, looking intensely at my toy squirrel. The little chap (or lass, didn't check what type of connector it had) was well-behaved though, did not chew anything or poop inside and did not go for the kitchen, so I felt kinda sorry chasing him away. Maybe I should start leaving a few (non-salted) nuts for them every once in a while (not so often that they would become dependent on feeding).

So what suddenly sits just in the middle of my room ? That fuckin spider. I decide to finally get rid of taht thing like a boss, grap a piece of paper, go to the window, open it a bit too loudly and.... that thing speeds up like hell, hiding under my computer desk. I pull it away, see the spider, which runs under it again, and then it's GOOOOONE. Holy crap, it just disappeared. I don't get it. And now this thing is somewhere in my room. It obviously hase invisibility skillz and is as fast as a Formula One car. Awe-some.

This is something I ever wanted to say: Vossenack is one of my favorite maps. But not because of the unique map layout, or gameplay wise. There are other maps I like for that aspects.
But I like/hate Vossenack so much from a artistic point of view. I live in a comparable region of germany and the landscape and terrain looks basicly the same. Small villages, hills, small valleys with small creeks and this all between forrest and fields. When I look out of my window and the autuum begins it looks exactly like this map; even the sky texture covers perfectly the wheather in germany.
When I played vossenack for the first time, I took a trip along the road in the south to attack the south-western flag. It was scary because this could have been easily around the village where I live. I mean there are a lot of other maps which looks like the real places, but all those places are far away from my everyday life; just look at the real life versus fh thread. But playing Vossenack felt a little bit too close for me. Good job Kettcar and LiliMarlene!

My last words: For me this is one of the masterpieces in the mod and bring it back one some servers!

Quite alot of people there who still felt guilty to what the imperials and the nazi's did to us in WW1 and WW2. Some where shocked to hear that few belgians felt a grudge against the germans.

Agreed

Edit: Oh new page, guess I ought to add a little more to my commentary

The Battlefield 3 thread was outrageous, the last 55 threads must have been petty arguments instead of people talking about say, Birgirpall or what their favorite gun ingame was, etc. It wasn't even a thread anymore, just a flame war.

The 75mm/L48 I didn't even touch after I finally looked at it. Wish I could have had an "ignore" button for those threads.

That said, I think the mods made a good move closing both.

I think i forgot to tell the end of my spider story. I went for playing football last week and picked up a jacket in my room, when I put on my shoes shortly after, i watched into a mirror and saw the spider running down my jacket. So no invisibility skillz, just a good hiding place in my jacket all the time :D I expected myself to hysterically move, but I stayed calm and it ran down my jeans to the ground. That was next to the door so I just made it run out of it.

there was a 500kg bomb in Graz trainstation last year found during construction. They wanted to cutt of the fuze with a shaped charge, but it went wrong, and the whole thing exploded. Trainstation and surounding houses were damaged, and my windows 4km away were vibrating.

At munich: they but straw on the bomb, thats why its burning in the air and also why some roofs were set on fire (why the hell straw - ah munich - capital of farmers  ;D )

I read that the experts said it has a complicated chemical detonator and that a little punch would have been enough to blow it off. So trying to defuse it manually was too dangerous and not an option. They tried defusing it with a remote-controlled device then but failed. So they built sandbags around it and blew it up. It's not that they did not try to avoid material damage, but in this case it seems that blowing it up was the only way.

I know most of you will not know what Im gonna go on about but individuals such as Thorondor will find this interesting, I hope...

So MaximusBlack, aka Jeff (a starcraft 2 player/caster), received something like around 4000 5000 6000 canadian dollars via donations during todays/tonights stream. I went to bed at around 1:30 finnish time and I woke up at around 4:20 because I just couldnt sleep. I turned the stream back on an decided to lie in bed and listen to the stream.

Then at some point during a regular SC2 game he began distracted by some people in the stream chat and after ending the match, he basically flipped the shit when he realised he had received roughly 3000 dollars because of couple very generous donators.

All the epic things we've seen during this stream makes it so much worth it that I couldnt sleep for more than couple of hours. We've seen the usual Master Exploder (feat. neighbours complaining & cops), gangnam style dancing in toga... etc... Epic stuff.

Its currently 7 AM, my eyes are in splinters and I'll propably ruin my day because Im not sleeping but I'll suffer because of such bouseness.

EDIT: Fixed some moulah amounts because the donations just keep flowing in.

EDIT: Gave away something like over 500 dollars worth of gift cards and shit to followers.

You should´ve posted this here (http://fhpubforum.warumdarum.de/index.php?topic=5324.0).
But yeah, barracks and basic training (you´re in BCT?) are mighty libido killers. But once you´ve got some time for yourself...oh boy!

Guess this one fits quite well:

your life would be much simpler if you didn't worry about the vagaries of a teenager's mind.

 the kid is like 15, he has barely discovered puberty and you want him to grow up as fast as you seem to have.

 Go for a walk, breathe in the air, and then go to the target range to get rid of some of that passive aggression.

I f*cking hate periods... That's all..
When i have an upkick of my condition, it is simular to the pain felt during female periods so i kinda share your pain

just not monthly

Sad day today for Canada :

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/quebecvotes2012/story/2012/09/05/marois-victory-speech-shot-fired.html

We had our provincial elections yesterday for Québec, some crazy guy tried to break in the PQ (won with a minority) assembly during the victory speech with what looks like to be a CZ 858 wich is a semi-automatic rifle and is LEGAL in Canada. He killed one man (bus driver we think) and injured another, just guys doing their job :(. Then he set fire to a dumpster, trying to get the building in fire.

He shouted in french with a pronunced english accent "The english are waking up!" "Enough". To me it looks like this guy just wanted to have his moment of "glory" and did not really do this to show that "The english are waking up"

These people went into popularity pissing contest.

We haven't got to see who is smarter than whom. I do sincerely hope that the whole America does not take their campaign seriously. And in my good will gesture to welcome our village idiot back, I will not say bad things about USA.

Critics of Obama says, he will lead US into 1,000 years of darkness... at least USA can survive that long.

So, I don't have to work for 3 days, piece of metal fell on the back of my foot at work right where the muscle is attached to the heel. Hurts like hell and I don't seem to fit in my shoes anymore due to swelling. I am glad nothing is riped or broken though.

Post by: siben on 06-09-2012, 14:09:42
In our workplace, yes, fatality every 5 years, serious incident every year, small things like this, weekly.

As example, I got burned twice this year, once by a boiling base, once by electricity (a lamp that was not working, but turned out to be incredibly hot) Also various small cuts, but those are no big deal, and now this.

Also, last Tuesday somebody was opening up an air-conditioning unit that was installed in the roof of a train. When he opened the hatch above him a large piece of metal that had gotten loose fell down just in front of him, could have easily gave him a big cut on his head.

Man, safety procedure in your workplace must improve, otherwise you will experience shitty period of lacking of manpower. Adopt a few practices from aerospace industries, they are one of the best in the field.

I remembered now, it was TheTA0123 who were having the same injury as you (his foot tendon was injured/nearly severed).

Safety is already rather high, problem is so is the workload. If we follow the rules to the letter then we would not even accomplish 1/4 of what we do now. Changing a light bulb in a train would literally be a 30 minute job for 2 people. We cut corners where we can without bringing ourselves in danger to much.

What happened to me now was my own fault, I was aware of the situation, I just moved to slow.

Yeah, sometimes the current procedure is too stringent and irrelevant to real situation. That happens very often, but people rarely revise the document.

Get well soon then... meanwhile, enjoy your rest.

Just checked Vaasa University's freshmens' initiation ritual. At pretty much every station they had to take their clothes off which of course was nice, and at the last station they all took all their clothes off and gathered into a huge pile and a fire truck came and hosed them down while they were chanting and music blasting in the background. Some sweet asses this year, I can tell you. Some people were so drunk they just ran around naked hugging people.
