>>17667 You're not alone. Some Indonesian architects thought similarly in their re-imagination of it a couple years ago. >>17669 That would've been a pretty massive rollercoaster, lol. I always thought it looked more like a large telescope or artillery piece. Tatlin's Tower was also known as the "Monument to the Third International" and if built was meant to serve as their new headquarters, all the while rivaling other monuments to modernity such as the Eiffel Tower and Statue of Liberty. It's hard to get a sense of scale because most architectural renders of it look like miniatures.

>>17618 >really a conspiracy No, soap-shills who think in dogmatics of "either you use soap or you don't" like to claim this, but frankly being mindful with soaps when washing is fairly normal.
>>17618 I only use shampoo when I actually have something nasty I need to wash out of my hair. Otherwise I just rinse it thoroughly and avoid shampoo because it makes my hair a pain to manage after washing out its oils.
>>17618 I had about 2 years where I washed my hair maybe once a month. Everyday with water though. However with longer hair the greasiness I found a bit unbearable and unattractive. Although I agree it definitely is a meme for most men with relatively short hair.
>>17636 Also guys please use conditioner sometimes, it makes your hair look a lot healthier and more attractive imo
>>17618 Not really an option in areas where the tap water is "hard". It'll make your hair extremely stiff after a while and your scalp gets covered in gunk. You can off course keep some vinegar handy, but at that point why not just go whole hog and use actual shampoo

Loyal parents who sacrificed so much for the nation Never feared the ultimate fate. Now that the country has become red, who will be its guardian? Our mission, unfinished, may take a thousand years. The struggle tires us, and our hair is grey. You and I, old friends, can we just watch our efforts be washed away?

I wrote a book of poetry amazon.com/dp/B08J2R4LD8
Have no real experience with English poetry (apart from trying original Shakespeare once and realizing that the translated version was way better), but I know a bit of Lithuanian poetry. I always loved the first three verses of this 19th century natlib poem that can be effortlessly made to be socialist. Tried to translate it as best as I could: You won't dam the river You won't dam the river, It would flow slowly if left on its own; You won't stop a new rising, Even if to greet it you are afraid. New ideas - not a work of a child: They throw storms and lighting when dammed! You won't the time: Fools can only hinder its works. People, the coming day At least our children will see!

Is poetry dead? Anonymous Comrade 12/28/2019 (Sat) 14:46:31 No. 4776 [Reply] [Last]
Button "Poetry" kept getting aggressively recommended to me in ads on Facebook, so I decided to check it out, and I have come to the conclusion that it is the most vapid psuedo-intellectual bourgeois spectacle I have ever seen (pic related) Libs eat that shit up when the poems aren't even well-written because it tells them what they want to hear. Sure, you can like what a "poem" is talking about, but that doesn't make it a good "poem", and the stuff they talk about is basic bitch lib shit anyway like "a cashier looked at me funny once at the grocery store, it was probably because I'm LGBT". Or stuff about muh depression. Newsflash; we're all depressed, honey. It's hard not to be in a society this alienating. If this is what's considered good modern poetry, can poetry be saved, or is it dead and buried? All of the examples of modern "poetry" that I can think of are similarly vapid, but I am very okay with being proven wrong.

How to grow mushrooms for beginners Anonymous Comrade 10/16/2020 (Fri) 22:45:09 No. 17604 [Reply] [Last]

>>17671 The trick with mushrooms is understanding exactly why they like growing in the shade, away from the sun. Fungi are people too. They don't need vitamin D constantly like plants do, but instead they need water food and shelter. They get their water from rain dripping down trees, down house rooftops, morning dew from grass, residual moisture underneath dead leaves, and water in the ground. They get their food from decaying plant and animal life, and fertile soil/woodchips/dead leaves or trees is prime growth for them. They get shelter which prevents them from losing moisture - for example, they can't grow in sand, not because of the sunlight, but because it dries out from the sunlight. Sunlight on its own doesn't kill them, but drying them out does. They don't fruit when there's no rain or wind, which is why they grow after storms. Hence, covering them up too much actually stops them from fruiting even though the mycelium will continue to grow if there's nothing killing it. Mushrooms specifically exist to reproduce, so they don't show up unless they have a chance to reproduce - wind carries spores and water nourishes the spores. It's like how you can't get a boner unless there's some pussy or hole presenting itself to you. Unless you're a girl and then you can't really get wet unless you think something's gonna penetrate you. It's the same with shrooms.

Poor man The Sopranos
>>13480 It has no similarity to the Sopranos except by aesthetic, the Sopranos are a totally different subject.
>>12600 I felt the writers were a little too in love with Don, he's supposed to be this deeply flawed character living a paper thin life, but just about every episode gives him an opportunity for a grand gesture of forgiveness or charity. I guess his arc lacked weight to me because of how often he's shown to genuinely be the most well adjusted person in the room.
>>13972 Agreed. I like how they did my girl peggy at the end though, when Don let her step forward and take the wheel. Also is Draper wordfiltered here?
>>13972 That's kind of the point, he's a mostly good guy suffering from imposter syndrome, he's not the equivalent of a tony soprano type.

>>9573 I used to laugh so hard at how miscast and aggressive the new Dumberdore actor was. There's a scene in the 4th movie where he runs into a room shouting at Harry, shoves him against a stone wall and shakes him while shouting, "Harry! HARRY! HDID YOU PUT YOUR NAME IN THE GOBLET OF FIRE?!" I think he might have even slapped him? The kindly old man from the books was turned into a fucking thug. In every scene the new Dumberdore looked like he was glowering at someone and was ready to lunge and kill every single person at Hogwarts.
>>17078 I pretend that Cursed Child and the Grindelwald movies didn't exist... their retcons and dumb bullshit are not worth the world-building.

The new TitTok meme about "muh stereotypes" in Harry Potter are just such liberal cringe I sigh heavily like an old man. https://knowyourmeme.com/memes/if-jk-rowling-had-a-stereotypical-character Like FFS, Cho-Chang, whose race is hardly even mentioned in the story is in Ravenclaw, as a stereotype about "Asian's being smart" and I have to wonder... so fucking what? Even if this is the case (and it probably isn't) that has 0 impact on the story or her character (and her relationship to Cedric) and TBH the "smart asian" stereotype is a fucking compliment, because the entire implication is "oh yeah these people are super smart!" Where is the downside here? It's not untrue in the least. And the whole "muh Muslims" and "muh latinos!" is such burger-shit. Harry Potter was written in the 90s/2000s in BRITAIN, when the Muslim population wasn't high, and where Latinos aren't even a blip on the RADAR. Look at black characters in the series, where do you see racism? Angelina and Lee are both good folks whose race is barely even touched upon, hell NOBODY'S race is touched upon in detail because it doesn't matter! The point was a story about magic with a child of prophecy and his adventures in an ancient castle as he learned about the secret magic world and its inhabitants, while preparing to face Wizard Hitler. The only TikToks that weren't boring as fuck was the one about "If Rowling wrote a slavic character" which is actually fucking accurate to the Klyukva meme ( http://lurkmore.to/Клюква ) TL;DR: Liberal idpol is moronic, and their attempts at humorous satire is poor.
>>17613 >TBH the "smart asian" stereotype is a fucking compliment, because the entire implication is "oh yeah these people are super smart!" Positive discrimination is still discrimination. Also ignores massive cultural influences for such a behaviors that westernized asians might not have anymore
>>17614 >Positive discrimination is still discrimination Bull fucking shit >massive cultural influences for such a behaviors The fuck are you talkin' about? I know Asian families, I grew up with one. Hell Read Amy Tan's work on her own family and it's fairly consistent. >westernized asians might not have anymore like I said, we know nothing racial about Cho-Chang besides her being asian and the (interpreted) stereotype of her being in Ravenclaw, despite it being shown that this is not racial at all, demonstrated with the Parvati Sisters being split between Ravenclaw and Gryffindor (which makes the other Tiktok about "Rowling's Indians" also bullshit, since we see no stereotypical stuff about Indians)

>>16912 Speaking of Christianity and Christian Communists; We're vastly outnumbered and have to avoid talking politics with 90% of our fellow believers so I feel that the latent frustration will probably force all of us off the grid by the end of the decade, joined up with whatever Amish commune or traditional Christian community that is still active. You guys can enjoy the hopeless fight against the liberals. Also as a very visible ethnic minority I can confidently state that the mainstream church isn't racist and hasn't been for a long time. America may be an exception since they're uniquely retarded and the legacy of the civil war still hangs over them but I've been to multiple churches in different countries and my most recent church provided for and hosted refugees from Syria even though they were muslim. And this church is in a solidly right-wing voting district so it's not like they're heretics or universalists or whatever. Atheist perception of the church is about as informed and honest as the rightoid perception of communism/socialism/etc. Also in regards to modern cyberpunk-tier developments like neural implants; I've been thinking about this, and if this becomes mainstream, I will become a hard core Christian, not because I actually believe in the shit, but for legal protection. I can likely get out of being micros chipped by my job for a religious exception, weirdo evangelicals are against micro chipping and considering their political influence they might win a supreme court case about it.

How based was this show? And, do you have faith that the reboot will do any justice to the previous seasons?
7 posts omitted.
Only complaint I've heard about the show was the lack of women, but there's a reason for that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F3XgpPhUEFE
Was based, ran its course, and if they reboot it now it will most likely stink. That's because it was a product of its time, a critique of the false normalcy of the Bush-Obama years. After Trump, like as not they will up the preachy-ness and tone down the crude humor, robbing the show of its authenticity.
>>17114 is it leftist or just anti-capitalist
>>17145 I think it's just anti-capitalist. It's supper missanthropic, I think to be a leftist you have to be a little optimistic that a better world is possible. The main character is supposed to be a revolutionary but it's just athletic, I was hoping that they would develop this but they never did. Iv not read the comics, maby there more optimistic.

>>17484 >Dragon Rouge is great for metalheads who don't care or want to rape babies but sill want to be an edgy person who summons demons Something you're not going going to get in your local wiccan or Tarot readers group. The irony is, there was a similar Faustian spirit in early religions, like Gilgamesh's struggle with pic related, a kind of proto-Satan, <Enkidu here represents the voice of ordinary common sense, while the real hero has a different set of values, which mark him both for greatness and for tragedy. Foolhardy in the face of his companions' worldly anxieties, open and generous where others are suspicious and vengeful, he is also alert, in a way his companion is not, to larger meanings...At the moment of their crisis, Enkidu acts as the conventional folktale hero, whereas Gilgamesh, seeing more in Huwawa than simply "the adversary", would be merciful, aware of their mysterious kinship. Neil Forsyth, The Old Enemy: Satan & The Combat Myth
>>17575 Yeah there always was, Huwawwa is deep-tier, but obviously there are more famous adversaries like Set, Loki, etc. Set of course is a big deal in ToS, and although he is famous in modern times for being the dude who killed Osiris, he was also the defender of the celestial Barge. Loki was the cause of many of the problems for the Norse pantheon, but also gave them the boons of Sleipnir and helped Thor on his Giant-slaying quests.
