It's not a place with heavy industry, from what I'm reading the river is mostly used for transport of raw materials, the products of agriculture, livestock, and logging.
Tigre specifically was a place for commerce and contraband, and at one point rich people set it up as a resort of sorts with heavy English influence (like that of the Rowing Club, that's its name in Spanish). Here's a pic of the Club de Regatas, for racing.

It weirds me the hell out seeing people my age or older involved in chantard culture. I stopped finding that kind of thing funny by my early 20s, and I always think of it as teen humor. When non-teens use it it just seems so... immature? to me. Like, you're in your 30s dude. Talking in a combination of edgy memes and racial slurs isn't cute anymore; it's just fucking sad.

How do you feel about the ocean/large bodies of water? Have you seen them or spent time swimming in them? Personally I've only ever seen an ocean from an airplane so I don't count it.
It's something I'd like to experience one day, but at the same time it kind of freaks me out to not have land beneath me. Nature shows and even video games really make underwater areas seem so cool to explore, like an alien world. It's a shame we need a bunch of equipment to do it since it's not our natural environment.

Mario Survey

A youtuber I like is doing a survey on how people categorize the Mario games, in preparation for a followup to another video he already made on the subject, https://youtu.be/XejJ6PzPtEw?si=CIkpaXzp9Htcvphs

He wanted people to reach out to others so he could get answers from outside his audience, and I figured this would be the sort of thing Kissu would be interested in. Here's the link if you want to take it. Be warned that it's very long, because basically everything that's remotely related to Mario and technically counts as a game is on it.

(This thread is partially in response to some of the posts in https://kissu.moe/qa/thread/115066)
The way people look at civilization collapse, especially internet people, is a gross simplification of the way things actually work. Honestly, the term "collapse" itself bothers me, because it encourages that sort of thinking.

Civilizations don't fall apart over night. The most famous example of civilization collapse, the collapse of the Western Roman Empire, was a slow, incremental process, much longer than a single life time, and by the time it had fully died it might as well have already been dead. It's paramount to an old man in bad health dying of a heart attack; it's sad, but everyone knew it was going to happen sooner or later, and so they were prepared for it.

And to be clear, I get that a modern collapse would probably be a bigger deal than the collapses of yesteryear. We're more dependent on our infrastructure now than we've ever been, and our infrastructure is more dependant on technology now than its ever been. Things are definitely going to be different without them. But the process itself is still a gradual one; gradual enough to give people time to adjust to the new normal as it developes. We're not going to turn into Mad Max where we're all scrounging for resources and killing each other any time soon, and it's most certainly not going to happen over night unless there's a nuclear holocaust or something.

I'm going to get a bass guitar for the first time. Because I've never played bass before, I want to get something as inexpensive as I reasonably can so I can take lessons and practice. But I'd like something that sounds decent, and I can't decide. The cheapest things seem to be Chinese brands, like Glarry which has bass guitars for around $100. Glarry in particular has a jazz bass that looks enticing to me, the GJazz. There's also one with double humbuckers called the GIB, which I am interested in as opposed to the single coil pickups. Above the Chinese junks are the lowest-priced offerings from name brands like Ibanez. In particular I was looking at an Ibanez GIO GSR100EX, which is around $200.

I'm really particular about getting a sound I like, and so far I prefer the sound of jazz basses over precision basses. I'm not sure how much of that has to do with things like pickups, amps, pedals, or just playing technique. Watching videos of people demoing the basses I'm interested in, I'm unsure how much of what I'm hearing is being carried by equipment and and how much is skill. This video of the Ibanez SR 1200 Premium has a sound that I like, but would a bottom-of-the-barrel bass like the ones I'm looking at be able to even sound close? Like, is that sound I like a result of pedal or amp effects?

Also, there is the question of whether to get a 4-sting or 5-string. 4-string is the "standard" but I think I'd like the lower range from a 5-string. That's also why I'm apprehensive about a more expensive bass, in case I'd end up wanting to go for the 5-string later on. And there's also the factor of flatround vs. roundwound strings, which seem to have differences in sound and playability.

Because I am looking to spend as little as possible I am probably going to get a Chinesium amplifer. So, whatever I get, there's a good chance it will sound like trash regardless of what guitar I get.

tl;dr For spending the least possible for a bassy bass guitar, is something like the Chinese Glarry good enough, or is going up to the low-cost model from Ibanez more worth it, or maybe even a Squier? Are things like pickups, string type, number of strings even worth worrying about for my quest for a good sound from something in this price range? Amazon has a pretty lenient return policy so I can probably get away with getting it refunded if I don't like it.

You ever find yourself wondering how specialty stores survive? It was strange before internet commerce and it's especially confusing now. 20 years ago a store opened up near me that specializes in house lighting, like chandeliers and light bulbs and other related things. How does it make enough money to stay open? It has to pay rent and pay workers and other related expenses, yet it's still there.
What a mystery...

Just recently by pure accident I found out that it's possible to see the shadow of the veins on your retina.

If you want to try this yourself you can follow the instructions here:

Alternatively, you can try the same way I did it:
Stare at your blank TV
With your arm fully extended, move your arm about a foot from center and hold a light source (I used my phone) and point it in the same direction as your eye is looking (towards your eye)
You can move your arm around in a circular fashion to see different regions within your eye

As mentioned in the article above, you can even use this method to identify blind spots such as the optic disk which is where the veins come into the eye from. I suppose if you have any retinal degeneration you could also identify that.

Does /aut/ have any favorite advertisements?

Here is one. Evertale is a generic gacha RPG, but their advertisements have a lore ripped off of indie JRPGs giving a recurrent horror theme that suggests the users will be able to eventually experience a real story in their gacha game. It uses free assets and plagerism to get people to click and think it's something interesting.
It's a nice scam.

I read some stories about mafias and gangs around the world and I think that the formation of them can point to the formation of human society.
They are usually born into poverty where the only way to survive is to by acting together to be powerful enough to make ends meet, relying on strength and violence. Those who are the strongest and cruelest are the key to this, so the weak rely on the strong to survive and are willing to obey the orders of them.
This results in a pyramid social structure with different levels of leaders and a culture of obeying the order of those who are higher up. The strongest aggregates the most wealth and become the king.
Maybe autocracy is part of the human nature.

Hmmm, very interesting. There was some Youtube Channel(Common Sense Skeptic I think), that was debunking Starship and Starlink, pointing out how ludicrous Starship is and how it's mission to Mars would never work for many reasons and in another video talking about how Starlink is a debacle that is actually losing Space X money and doens't offer a better service than what is already available. This email kind of confirms both, Starship was never meant to go to Mars, he just said that to hype up idiots, it's meant to send these satilites to space in a manner that is actually viable and cost effective because as it is they are going to go bust.

99% of STEM graduates can't solve this primary school problem in an hour! Can you?

There is a well, open at the top, with a diameter of three meters. We throw two sticks with lengths of four and five meters, respectively, into the well. Let's assume that these sticks are positioned as shown in figure 0.2, i.e., they stay in the same plane and they "cross each other" as shown. The problem is really two-dimensional, as the well can be replaced by a rectangle that is open at the top.

Now, the challenge is to determine the distance h from the bottom of the well to the point where the two sticks intersect.

The comments on this video are interesting, because they exist in some sort of manufactured reality. For the last year, maybe two, Martin has been continually self-sabotaging himself by redesigning parts that do not need redesigning, creating parts that were not given enough forethought for the ways in which they will fail, and then worst of all, going beyond the scope of the project and introducing corrosive feature creep with elements of the previous two issues intermixed.

Despite this realization finally striking Martin, the response from the comments is flooded with messages saying, "Don't give up! We support you!" and "Your issues make the project unique! Without them, you're destroying it's character."

I can't help but wonder who these people are, and what their rationale might be. Was redesigning the marble gates 3-4 times in a row really productive? Was adding the additional constraint that the machine must be silent constructive? Was redesigning the rhythm machine necessary? Did the focus -- for far too long -- on trying to make the mechanism for dropping marbles look like spindly fingers actually achieve anything?

You ever wonder how some stuff manages to be profitable? Like peas, for instance. It takes something like 30 of the plants to fill up one frozen bag and the bag sells for a dollar. Is it just government subsidies?
And then there's specialty stores. Maybe physical specialty stores are on their way out because of online shopping, but previously a guy could have a store where he just sells paint or pool supplies and somehow it would stay in business throughout his life.
It's just so strange to me to think somehow civilization supports this kind of thing.

Everything seems so messed up. The world keeps getting worse and worse. People are forced into more and more debt in order to get by. Giant companies cut costs, pass them off to consumers, and price gouge all to appease shareholders. People are forced to rent everything they have because it's not financially feasible to own anything anymore. Governments which are supposed to protect its citizens ignore it as they only seek to gain more power for themselves. The only way I see this getting fixed is an economic collapse to restart the system. But that will hurt a lot of people and take generations to recover. I like to think it's not as bad as it seems and my perception is just warped from secluding myself to imageboards most of my life, but every time I look at the real world, it just doesn't seem okay. I hope I'm wrong and everything isn't actually as messed up as I see it, but I'm not too confident in that....

I went on my yearly 6hr autumn walk through the park trials for these walks I start on the bike paths before going off to the unmarked areas. I normally bring a weapon but I foolishly forgot this time luckily there was no danger.
I couldn't say the same for this caterpillar I found on the bike path before going to the unmarked areas. It was a monarch and knowing there are indangered I picked it off the path so it wouldn't go squish from bikes and carried it away to an unmarked area deep in the woods to be safe. I then altered my route because I don't like backtracking.

Hours pass and I head back to the bike path only to see a squished caterpillar on my trek I start to think "I hope that's just one I didn't carry" only to find just up ahead 13 more dead monarch caterpillars. Now I'm thinking that I did it for nothing I saved one only to see a bunch more dead...maybe even the one I "saved" maybe if I didn't see the one caterpillar I could have saved others..maybe I'm only fooling myself.

i want more excitement and drama in my life and im just accumulating money without anything to spend it on so im thinking about developing an addiction to opiates
it would be kind of cool to wake up in a dumpster or under a highway overpass looking like a ghoul from fallout. also I'd meet tons of interesting characters like drug dealers, other addicts that we could talk about how our life took this direction and stuff
and there's even the possibility of getting into running dope and getting in gun battles and chased around by unmarked police cars and feds on some dark street

Ive seen enough movies on the subject, and being a heroin addict just seems pretty freaking COOL! Also the main character from trainspotting is super hot in those mega skinny jeans. it's freaking cool..

And all of this is before we even get into the simplest benefit of becoming a opiate abuser. It's literally the best feeling in the world. Life is like a big video game trying to get the most feelgood points with your resources. Well most people are retarded because we already invented the cheapest and way to get these points and its just to inject them directly into our brain. People who will tell you otherwise are just like weird autists who refuse to use glitches, or even the most effective items in an RPG. Yeah bro okay, spend hours and hours grinding level 1 zombies or whatever. I'm just going to skip directly to the endgame. You're never going to get as many points as me raising some shitty family with a wife that comes to hate you, or working a corporate job.
