The Flood / Re: I used to love soy sauce on JP food

isnt Paul Joseph Watson, the main dude behind this whole bullshit, selling some sham "intelligence boosting" pills that literally have soy in the ingredients

Yup. Verb put up a video of someone who debunks it pretty quickly. Might have been in the "cuckmouth" thread.

Sounds like men need a war to die in.

That's always a good testosterone sink, and the people that come back ways come back fine and ready for the world.

I was wondering for ages why I wasn't getting notifications for streams to watch, so I kept checking here for progress (and I'm glad to see it's working out!).

But now I just fucking realised I wasn't following in the first place, fuck me smh.

The Flood / Re: Are small house parties any fun?
« on: February 15, 2018, 03:32:39 PM »
Small house parties with good friends are some of the best.

Small house parties with complete unknowns who are either unwelcoming or don't bother aren't worth your time.

Half and halfs of these two scenarios can be either meh/alright, or pretty fucking good and you make friends with the unknowns.

The Flood / Re: The 17th school shooting since February 2017 happened today
« on: February 15, 2018, 08:05:57 AM »
So what is that, about 1 every 3 days?

What is defined as a shooting? I heard there's "only" been 6 in schools so far (so still at 3.5 a month or so).

It's fucking insane in the US. I saw recently Baltimore was celebrating 11 days without a homicide, while some countries in the EU go without a homicide in a whole year. Not directly related to guns, but damn, y the US liek murdur so much.

Hops also contain phytoestrogens so I wonder why all the believers of the soyboy aren't going after craft beers.

Because beer is manly af and cancels out the pussy powers of soy.

...er...supposedly.
Yeah but craft beer is for yuppie fags and not men

Oh you mean the beardy hipsters trying to resemble a skinny lumberjack...

Everyone knows a bread only diet is the only respectable avenue to take.

You're eating dead Yeast, who worked hard to grow to that size until someone baked them to death.

How does that make you feel.

I recently dug out my old minolta camera. I've waiting for it to warm up a bit to go out and venture with it.

Oh shit boi I've got a Minolta too!... Well, 3 of them actually. Two X-300's and an X-500 I gave to my gf because they're great little cameras and you can usually get 'em for around £20-30 on E-bay.

First one's been in the family for ages, my Uncle took it to the Falklands with him.

Oh hey.

I'm in a relationship, I graduated from my course, and hopefully should have some temp job to do by next month (which is good because the area is severely lacking in careers).

Really getting into old film photography recently and developed my first few rolls of film I used 4 years ago. I'll get around to putting the good ones in a thread at one point.

Maybe you should just drink Red Bull because it contains Bull sperm (MAXIMUM TESTOS) and inject Steroids (EXTREME MAXIMUM TESTOSEROS) to balance out your soy diet.

C'mon guys, everyone knows this.

Spoiler
That is another thought I've had... if what the police visits to school about drug awareness have taught/put the fear in me, Steroids ramp up your testosterone and estrogene matches it, then when you go cold turkey the test goes down but the estrogen stays up (because it was naturally produced, or something), so if you artificially ramped up your Estrogen (with whatever bullshit food they claim), wouldn't that do the opposite if you stopped i.e. ramp up your testosterone?

It can't be that half baked and simple as that, can it?

To some a confrontation is enough to do it  - to others a demonstration of force. If you make it painful enough to do it, they won't bother anymore and will find someone easier.

My brother beat the shit out of a little shit who tried it on him, by beating him with a book.

David Attenborough, Clint Eastwood and Harrison Ford come to mind.

It's more of a "Oh fuck these vastly famous/influential/iconic people in their field are dead and won't be making more things" than anything else.

Pretty sure we have space in the madhouse, in between the political shit-flinging and Deci-rage copypastas.

Don't worry if the last flew over your head, he comes back every month or so.

I've been able to post so far so I'll start making topics for Sep7 if someone can shove me a template to use.

I think we should really highlight that we have a lot more freedom here - avatars, names, swearing, religious and political discussion... we even have/had a form of Coup for gods' sake.

The island of Ireland should be geopolitically whole again. Preferably not violently, so Brexit has been a perfect lubricant for this discussion.

Northern Irish Unionists/"West Brits" are straight up awful.
Why doesn't North Ireland want to become part of Ireland?
After the civil war, to end the bloodshed it was agreed to end it on one condition. North counties stay a part of England.

And that was bargained for because a majority of the population there descend from the Ulster Planteers (Plantaters...? English/Scots Protestants). With RoI being majority Catholic and with religious ideals being held very closely by both sides before the modern day (and to some extent, still today), tensions rose and conflict has been banging around ever since, until 1997/98, when the Good Friday Agreement came in and the IRA decommissioned.

Unfortunately that area still has religious tensions because it became closely intertwined with nationality and ownership of Ulster (and today, the remaining 6 counties under UK control). Long story short;

NI Protestant = Consider themselves British, living in a part of the UK off the mainland.
NI Catholic = Consider themselves Irish, living in a part of Ireland that is controlled by another country.

This has led to gerrymandering, literally forking Catholics out of one Protestant-controlled street and into a Catholic one and vice versa which creates strongholds for either camp, A Bloody Sunday or two (1920,1972), and the odd Trouble.

It's still a hotly debated topic, and this recent poll* in December 2017 showed that only a marginal majority of NI residents would support re-uniting with the Republic should a "No-Deal" scenario occur, and guess which religious group sided with re-unification...?

*some relevant info on this poll;
- Commissioned by Sinn Fein (The Irish Nationalist/Republican party)
- ~2000 responses

W@W Veteran was the most difficult I've played simply by ramping up the damage output, recruiting soldiers that were perfect pitchers and giving each of them a crate of grenades.

Coupled with the level-loadouts of enemies and certain scenarios requiring you to push to a point otherwise the enemies won't stop respawning, levels like Blowtorch & Corkscrew were infamous in their difficulty. You couldn't advance more than a few feet before a jap-in-a-box popped out of a floor trap, shot you with a high powered bolt action rifle, whilst simultaneously throwing a pre-cooked grenade at your feet. I gave up on this level on Veteran for months after I got shot to near-death and died by being bonked on the head with a grenade being thrown at me.

The final level, Downfall just spawned enemies at you until you pushed up enough, which was nigh impossible without sprinting forward, cowering in a corner and spraying at anyone nearby until your retarded AI came forward to end the respawning script for that area. Oh, and fighting in the Reichstag where desperate Nazis would start firing RPG's at you with massive OHK splash damage. You just had to time your own soviet-ally respawner to send a wave ahead to get rocketed, so you could sprint out and shoot them all whilst reloading and then get back to cover before everything else focused on you.

Metro 2033 and LL was by far the easiest Hard difficulties I've played. Ammo and air-time for going above ground are far more scarce, as is the currency which are just better bullets, so you have to actually take into account do you want a lot of bullets to kill enemies but with scavenged guns rather than paid ones, or do you want to save bullets and go stealthy to save up money for stealth attachments or throwing knives, etc. Since much of the game can be done without killing anyone (and even some levels not killing the mutant animals too), it's far easier to do a "stealthy hard mode" than a "guns blazing, kill everything - hard mode" While the latter had weaker enemies because all bullets kill, enemies would react faster and conglomerate on your position better, making it a lot more difficult to fight out.

The ultimate hard mode for the game made it more immersive too, by just removing the HUD entirely. From intro to end, you have to remember the control scheme (negligible if you've played enough recently ), second guess your ammo supply ("Is this my last mag/grenade, or my second last?"), and count off your airtime with a watch on your arm that beeps when you only have to change filters for your mask, which is now a manual-operation only (failure to do so results in you pulling off your mask and dying if you don't replace it in 10 seconds). This also included the odd quicklime event if a mutant leapt onto you, or you had to stab some ambusher, which fortunately was just the knife button.

Personally I found Heart of the Reich harder. Destroying those 4 AA guns was hell.
Oh shit, is that the one where you charge to the reichstag but not in it? I kinda merged them both into one.

Serious / Re: being offended "for" people
« on: January 18, 2018, 11:44:52 PM »
It comes off as condescending personally.

"The poor [black/asian/jewish/disabled/LGBT] people, they haven't come to defend themselves against this horrid comment on Twitter/Facebook/[social media site that exposes everyone to everything anyone said on it], don't worry, completely unknown faceless and masses of assumed offended [minority], I'll tell them off".

It assumes that i) There is an actual offence caused to someone or some group, which may not always be the case (more not than often, because generalising the offence of one person to an entire group is bad), and ii) That said assumed offended group can't defend themselves against it, when the wonders of social media and the internet means everyone will see it, can promptly ignore it, or tut-tut the thing.

And just like white-knighting, it's about as effective. People don't exactly respond well to being told off and most rational non-racist/homophobic/ableist/whatevers are just gonna read it and think "Come the fuck on" like it's preaching to the choir.

But this kinda skirts your question and deals with the latter part;
At what point does having empathy for other human beings become a case of being offended "for" said target.

I dunno if there is "a point". You could say nothing to the post or statement and instead protest for equality and legal rights, donate to a charity for said minority, do some volunteering work for the said group that were targetted, something a bit more valuable than acting holier-than-thou and getting offended on behalf of someone else who may or may not exist. Let them say they're offended by it, because there's always the off chance the target doesn't give a flying fuck, or thinks it's hilarious.

Then finally, there's the whole uselessness of being offended - great. So what? I'll let Steve Hughes explain that.
YouTube

He's a comedian, granted, but it feeds back. Offence is subjective, what I'm being offended for on behalf of an assumed group may not be offensive at all to others, maybe even that assumed group I'm "defending".

It's nearly 6am so I'll likely have to go back through this to make it more coherent, but eh.
