I'm kinda worried about an hypothetical blackout because I don't have enough stuff to entertain myself for weeks. No electricity means no computer, no anime, no internet, no games... Maybe I should focus on hoarding more manga and books? Also it's not that bad to have a few days to rest from the internet I think. I would probably focus on writing stuff. Of course, resources are a problem to solve. I will have to use candles and buy lots of canned food.

https://www.aninews.in/news/world/asia/us-reveals-plans-to-develop-powerful-laser-weapon-after-chinas-hypersonic-missile-test20211107200057/

At what point does missile defense remove MAD and make it one-sided assured destruction for whoever doesn't have the proper defense setup?

 No.1011

>>1009
Well that is exactly why the treaty against anti-ballistic missile technology used to exits. I don't think it will change much though, you would have to be 100% sure that you could shoot down 100% of all incoming nukes over 100% of the country, or you end up with cities being nuked anyway. Plus in competitive environments like this where both nations are working on better missiles how can you even be sure you actually can shoot them down? It's a big risk to take. On top of that there are other ways they could deliver nukes that would be much harder to prevent or even impossible.

For example Russian and Chinese subs are becoming much harder to detect, it's said that Russian subs can't be found by passive sonar anymore. So if one of these subs evaded the US navy and surfaced a few kilometres from New York or LA, then what? Your anti-missile system won't be good enough to stop something that close and that sudden. They have missiles that travel far faster than bullets.

 No.1012

>>1011
Well, an issue with the hypersonic weapons is that they're too fast to detect, and due to their speed, they might be too fast to shoot down. With conventional ICBMs, there's at least the potential for MAD because the 15 minute time between lift-off and impact leaves plenty of time to confirm the validity of the attack, and then mount a counter-strike. With hypersonic weapons, that may not still be the case, and one would hope it would not make those with their finger on the button more prone to want to act with haste.

As far as these weapons are concerned, they very much go against the spirit of MAD, and really can only be interpreted as developing first-strike capability, meanwhile the US has been focusing on simply modernizing its existing arsenal rather than developing new weapons.

This new cold war sucks.

Tornado outbreak story update. 22 confirmed tornadoes.
https://abcnews.go.com/US/50-dead-tornadoes-devastate-kentucky/story?id=81672801

>>1114
The best that meteorologists can say is "there will probably be the right conditions to produce tornadoes in a couple days. Maybe.". It's really unpredictable, and when there's too many false alarms people stop paying attention, which was a problem in the past. A couple of years ago it was predicted a week ahead of time there that there was going to be a major outbreak, but then thankfully it didn't happen.
A "tornado watch" is when the conditions are right and they tend to blanket large areas to let people know, but a "tornado warning" is when there's direct sight of a funnel or radar-indicated rotation, either still in the clouds or on the ground. There's a huge difference between them, and thankfully even "warnings" rarely produce tornadoes on the ground.
Then, once it's on the ground it's still unpredictable. Even professional stormchasers with decades of experience have died when a tornado changed course.

>>1203
Getting infected really isn't that big of a deal if you're vaccinated since you're magnitudes less likely to have a severe case that requires hospitalization. Which was basically the point of vaccines in the first place... Don't know why people are expecting it to magically disappear just because people are 70% less likely or whatever to contract it. 30% are still getting it.

 No.1205

>>1204
Might not be like it where you live but the government thinks that everyone has to be completely immune. This is partly due to public reception of the virus. This means it's possible that the definition of fully vaccinated goes up every time the public is in hysteria. Fully vaccinated individuals are currently the only ones allowed into public social spaces. Also governments are currently implementing more restrictions on public gatherings. Definition of being effectively masked for medical professionals in Ontario is changing from 1 cloth mask to 2 cloth masks or a medical mask.

Severe cases, death cases, vaccinations. None of it matters. Goverment wants 100% removal or for the public to stop caring about it(if 9/11 is any measure people won't)

One of the smart people said early on that we're only as strong as the weakest country since we're all connected now. Off the top of my head the three mutations I remember are from Brazil, India and most recently South Africa. People can minimize the damage outside those areas, but as long as there are poor countries where viruses have free rein it will keep mutating. I think the "hope" is that eventually there will be a relatively harmless variant that becomes dominant.

Concerningly smug article. I don't like how it compares moderate consumption of beer with the same for chocolate, because alcohol still carries a number of problems that you'll never get from cocoa.
Anyways, I went and read the paper, and I'm not convinced. Even though it uses the term "cause" multiple times, all it's doing is point out a correlation. It's literally just statistics. In fact, look at this line:
>Participants’ level of physical activity was not considered due to missing data in 17.4% of the cohort.
That's a massive flaw. What I find much more plausible is that coffee drinking is associated with a set of behaviors that can reduce cardiovascular risk, like a less sedentary lifestyle. And keep in mind, this doesn't take away the other effects of caffeine like anxiety and insomnia, the paper itself mentions this. "Good for you" is just the usual media exaggeration.

That's cool. I think it's better that they are in their own units for multiple reasons. One issue is that it turns the army into a nightclub type environment. I know somebody in my countries air defence(which falls under artillery), a few years ago they let women into the branch and it was done by simply letting them join existing units, allot of friendships were broken over fighting over women and he really doesn't like how it affected the unit(though he is engaged to one of these women as well so it's not like he is not a part of it).

maybe it's better since a lot of social issues come out of ex-military who leave and then can't integrate into a civil life. Blending the civil with military might help in situations with lots of stress. Ukraine has 15% of it's active combatants as women.

Though it would depend on the culture of the nation, I am from a western nation that's hyper sexualised with a dating culture. In nations where casual relationships are less common it would be different, they might view it more professionally. I don't know how Israel fits into that.

But then Israel always had women in the army because they were always under threat and needed all the people they could get, Ukraine is like that too, and the separatist region who employ women as well for that matter.

In Canada we have various regulations around the suppression of foreign cultures and promotions of local cultures. In practice it sounds like it could be OK and debatable, but all plans born from the desire to suppress other's culture and viewpoints are met by terrible corruption. Recently the TV broadcaster lobbies are pushing hard to get YouTube and streaming platforms to shift their algorithms towards suppressing nationally unapproved content and promoting the established content. Of which the only people who can reasonably do this are TV company channels and studios on YouTube who have to be approved by a bureau. All for the benefit of nationalism, the country and yada yada.

Anyways, that's the context.
There isn't much to say about it since it's proposed effect is on corporations that compete with the Canadian TV cartel, but it's ratification could, by the end of the decade, slippery slope to legal clauses which will cause issues with search engines or potentially user generated content in general.
Just that I'm aware of it and will deal with the issues if it becomes relevant and will deal with it in such a way that doesn't effect how the site will run. Lets hope it doesn't.

E-H had a pretty big update recently. The main thrust of things is that the old pagination system was causing too much load so they've completed removed all concept of paging and now only have "First", "Prev", "Next" and "Last". A lot of people are upset by this, particularly because this changes provides a markedly worse use experience with regards to searching many pages deep since there's no equivalent "Jump X galleries forward/back", and instead users have to navigate based on gallery IDs and manually type into the URL to go to an approximate location. The admin, Tenboro, has declared that these complaints are, "brigadeering", and because of this, "I'm not actually reading this thread anymore".

Notably, there are many other changes included, such as changes to filtering and improved search parsing, many of which had users reporting issues that they were experiencing as a result of the update. Unfortunately, due to the swell of pagination removal complaints flooding the thread, many of these bug reports are likely to be be ignored.

This is pretty interesting story about a particular coral reef recovering: https://www.npr.org/2022/11/02/1132950728/coral-reef-resurrected-climate-change-bleaching-protection-nat-geo
Apparently algae grows on dead coral which prevents new growth, which a healthy (I.E not commercially harvested) fish population will keep in check. One of those ecosystem things we didn't understand until someone had the means to study it. The future is still bleak for coral, though...

I don't think the design philosophy works with sky scrapers but they mention that those pods were able to stand alone on the ground, that makes more sense. I can easily see that approach working in a stand alone setting. I would love to be able to buy a plot of land and place something like that on it, though that relies on it actually being cost competitive with other alternatives anyway. I have looked into prefabbed pod like structures before and they were more expensive than simply building a house.
