I want to nakadashi *girl* has become a popular phrase on imageboards (mostly 4chan). But it's a mix of Japanese and English. If I was going to say "I want to cum inside Holo" fully in Japanese, how would I go about doing that? In the English sentence, nakadashi is a loan word and it is the action being done, but in Japanese I don't think 中出し is a verb. Can it be verbified by adding する to it? And then you conjugate it to say you "want" to do it. So the end result would be 私はホロで中出ししたい which would translate to I want to cum inside Holo. Am I correct?

Japanese is fun to learn.

It's a new season which means a new batch of seasonal anime. Do you have any nominatinos for the Kissu Seasonal Stream?
There are holders of Mewkledreamy and Precure and some shows like Jahy-sama and Idaten that haven't been streamed fully yet. Everyone seems to love Mushoku (the voice of /qa/ is in it!) but apart from that there's nothing guaranteed to be loved. What do you think? I'll give my own opinions later on.

>Can you play back the radar signal at a faster rate to make the radar think you're approaching at high speed?
I'm pretty sure radar works at the speed of light because radar is another form of EM radiation. So, you wouldn't "speed up" or "slow down" the radar waves, but you could do some sophisticated trigonometry assuming you knew the fixed location of a radar detection station and "move" a radar wave arbitrarily so that it's location can be anywhere, and thus move at any speed. Likewise, you could increase or decrease the gain to mimic a smaller or larger radar cross-section, I believe.

This sort of falls apart when you think about the fact that modern military aircraft use passive radar detection, and you can't necessarily know every single point where radar is being picked up at. So, maybe you could triangulate active radar detection sites and fool them, but you couldn't fool passive radar unless you used active radar to find them. But, using active radar literally means you're sending a ping out to everything within a certain radius, not only alerting yourself of others within your vicinity, but them of you as well.

 No.72431

>>72429
By "speed up" I mean increase the frequency. Imitate the Doppler effect.

Multiple receivers is a problem; they should easily be able to deduce that the signal isn't coming from where it's trying to appear to come from, and probably even triangulate the real position. Best workaround I can think of so far is to make your signal just above the threshold of detectability. I imagine the signal strength they need in order to figure out the direction by comparing the phase at different receivers would be higher than what's needed to notice something exists, and the signal strength needed to do parallax would be even higher. In any case, you need to make your real radar cross section small enough so they don't pick up on real reflections.

It could very well be that they don't know if their tricks will work, and the whole point is to figure out if they do by what reaction they get.

>Can you play back the radar signal at a faster rate to make the radar think you're approaching at high speed?

yes this is how the earliest analog ECM worked, you signal back at the radar with more amplitude time it for fake distance. and then suddenly change/turn off your ECM and the radar will gate you out and loose track of you entirely

it appears as if you're getting closer and closer and then suddenly disappear

>There's supposed to be a government report released "sometime next month".
https://www.dni.gov/files/ODNI/documents/assessments/Prelimary-Assessment-UAP-20210625.pdf

The gist of the report is:
UAPs are real, but as their name suggests, it is not clear what they are, however they do appear to pose some risk to aviators; there are 11 reports of near misses with a UAP. Most incidents involved multiple sensors (radar, infrared, electro-optical, weapon seekers, and visual observation) identifying UAPs, however more information and further analysis is needed to draw further conclusions on the nature of UAPs; as such, more standardized reporting mechanisms have been put in place for the Navy and Air Force to report UAP incidents. There are five potential explanatory categories for UAPs: airborne clutter, natural atmospheric phenomena, USG or U.S. industry developmental programs, foreign adversary systems, and a catchall “other” bin. Of all of the reports received only one was identified with high confidence -- a deflating balloon -- the rest remain unexplained. UAP sightings tended to cluster around US training and testing grounds, but this may be a matter of collection bias in these regions due to there being a concentration of sensors operating in those areas. In 18 incidents, described in 21 reports, observers reported unusual UAP movement patterns or flight characteristics. Some UAP appeared to remain stationary in winds aloft, move against the wind, maneuver abruptly, or move at considerable speed, without discernable means of propulsion. In a small number of cases, military aircraft systems processed radio frequency (RF) energy associated with UAP sightings.

Over all, the largest conclusion that can be drawn is that while most UAPs remain unexplained to some degree, far more data and reports are necessary to be able to draw further conclusions on their nature and behavior.

Black Company was easily my favorite isekai this season. Never stayed too long on one topic to get formulaic and unlike almost anything isekai I had no idea what twist they were going to pull next. It was a fun societal critique too with each episode making sure to touch on some shittyness of society Ninomiya needed to overcome. Not to mention just how fun and actually a character Ninomiya was, he wasn't some stand-in for the viewer, but an actual character with motivations, personality, and goals, the last episode solidifying the last point. Really hope there's more plain fun romps like this in the future.

I really liked all the curve balls it through definitely kept you on your feet. Can't believe Ninomiya ended up getting Rim pregnant. I always really enjoyed the fact that the story isn't some epic adventure spanning 500 episodes but tells it's story in a timely manner then ends and while it sorta leaves room for a continuation, it seems pretty clear that is just there to show that the characters have a life outside of the story. It also has a deeper message/commentary on (mostly japanese i assume) corporate culture that isn't just ham-fisted critics nor is the commentary all the show has top offer. Overall a really refreshing, competent show and story.

Even if the transport itself is more efficient you still have to transport far more of it than you otherwise would have because there are far more people. You have to mine far more of it, produce far more, etc as well. This applies to food as well, you are not really using less land because you are using the land in the countryside to feed the population(and importing food from other lands as well). Fitting more people in a given area is not actually a good thing in that regard. I would not even agree that it lowers the residential land used, not with the way things like this tend to work, it will change how they fit people into the land that will be used to house people not how much of that land will be used to house people. Cities are good for economies but little else.

The only reason Japan has such great nature outside of Tokyo is because it's mountainous, not good for farming or living for a realistic community. Same story for most of Japan's locale really.

Well, um, stress and anxiety, and a variety of other mental conditions can all lead to varying physical manifests ranging from fatigue, muscle twitching, rapid heart rate, increased perspiration, loss of appetite, etc. and they even cause deadly conditions like heart attack and stroke.

Fixing mental issues is always tricky and I think comes down to the individual in question, what they're motivated by, and whether their stressors are innate (mental conditions) or environmental (intra-personal issues). I think generally some solid advice would be to remain persistent, and -- when possible -- avoid your stressors, or overcome them through therapy or through sheer force of will. Medication is technically always an option too, but I'm suspicious of the health impacts long-term usage implies, particularly for drugs that alter brain chemistry, and in such cases I would always recommend therapy first unless the condition in question is severe and requires treatment such as manic disorders, schizophrenia, or severe depression.
