That was really cool and I wish I was awake to see it live. All the different cameras made it seem like a movie, and speaking of movie it was weird to give the crowd audio.
I'm guessing that was a self-destruct at the end since it was barreling out of control and you don't want a giant fuel tank to collide with the ground? Not sure...


thats a pretty cool setup with those w*rkstations

You gotta wonder, how the hell can any of them survive when there's like a billion of those instant death butterflies around that could sting them at any moment.


Bugs tend to stay away when you're thrashing about trying to kill people. It's only when you calm down that they get you.

I don't even know who he is.


explain the joke oldies


It's Dane Cook. I don't know how vampire's opening could possibly related to him, but he was a famous "frat boy" comedian in the '00s and maybe the early '10s?. Some people really liked him, some people really hated him.

That's flippin awesome! Although their practicality is probably limited while they need to be attached to your arms instead of legs. Wonder if that'll be the next stage of their development.

Ah, you beat me to it. I saw a thing on this on BBC and it seemed really cool since mountainous terrain can be risky for helicopters and they require a fairly large landing pad. It'll be good for young first responders and such, but I can't imagine doctors in their 60s doing it.

Big storm came through and kind of wrecked my roses. Had to chop off some of the longer stems to get it to prop back up. Still got a lot of buds at least.

>Had to chop off some of the longer stems to get it to prop back up
A couple months ago I had enough of our honeysuckle vine being an unmanageable mess and gave it a severe trim. I removed like 90% of the branches, and after I did so I discovered that I completely forgot it had a trellis, but it outgrew it and put so much weight on it that it bent under its weight. I removed like 80% of the total mass of the plant and I was worried I killed it, but then I was reminded how foolish I was when Spring came and it proved its reputation as invasive plant that you need to keep isolated because it already grew like 8 new tiny branches in a few weeks.
I kind of wonder why there aren't honeysuckle farms where people use them for tinder or something because it's absurd how fast they grow


yeah it's amazing how fast some plants grow.

I've got some holly bushes that seem to be pretty much indestructible, I cut them way back every year and yet they keep growing out to being a problem.

Oh, yeah I guess that's true. Making cheese sounds like a lot of work, though



My uncle does that but he butchers and eats them. He tried getting sheep to raise them for wool but I think shearing was too much for him so he ate them as well.

If I get enough land I'll probably buy Shetland ponies or something like that. That way I can probably breed and sell them for a reasonable amount and not have to eat them or sell them for meat.

only thing that comes to mind is when the design for space station solar panels that start packed into this folded configuration discovered by this japanese mathematician who was inspired by origami. you need to pull on it from just two ends and the creases would constrain the structure and transmit the force everywhere it needed to go to unpack the entire rectangular panel which was much bigger than the cubey thing it started as
ah found it its the miura fold


looks like pleat folding (zigzag fold it then zigzag fold it again)
Glad you found the video

could the tale of Ozymandias be interpretted as the philosophy of nhilism or would that be reading too much into what the poem is trying to say?

I met a traveller from an antique land,
Who said—“Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. . . . Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;
And on the pedestal, these words appear:
My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings;
Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.”

Nope, the aberration is there. It's on the sides as some sort of attempt at a "focusing" filter or something

Let's have a thread for expressing thoughts and ideas which don't really deserve their own thread, and possibly aren't entirely appropriate for elsewhere on the site. As the content that description begets may not be entirely up to /qa/lity standards, I ask that posts made in this thread are moderately thought out and are kept at a civil level so the thread remains somewhat peaceful and is befitting of kissu. Aside from that, feel free to get whatever it is that's bothering you off your chest, or say whatever odd thoughts may come to your head.

my coworkers in the philippines are having 43 degree celsius days

People love to hate on DBS and its community, but it seems to me like they've been pretty damn influential. Their funposting starting in 2017 seems to have paved the way for Spanish terms and tierlists becoming way more popular throughout most of 4chan. SEXOOOO in particular is shockingly widespread, reaching 68k posts on Desu in the last three years alone. Before 2020 only 15K total posts with the word had been made, of which a measly 4k had been made during 2018 and 2019. That's like an over 1000% increase in yearly sexo. They also created "I kneel", which similarly gives NINETY FOUR THOUSAND results since the start of 2020. Worth remarking that numbers for both of these are taken from Desu alone. Very, very interesting stuff.


File:Screenshot 2023-05-01 at 1….png (32.26 KB,1138x116)

Can't believe I forgot about the very obvious basado. 77k hits on Desu, of which almost 71k are from 2019 onwards. 3k are the superlative basadísimo/a.


Update: sexo has been used another two thousand times since this post was written.

well what you can do if you don't want that is to get water boiling while having the window open and then take the lid off after turning off the stove and closing the window
you'll have a bunch of steam in there but that's a good thing


File:[DameDesuYo] Utawarerumono….jpg (232.08 KB,1920x1080)

When we lost power in our house (posted elsewhere) we made use of the water heater which used gas instead of electricity. The bathroom was essentially turned into an on-demand sauna by running the shower for a little bit. Pretty nice


It's fortunate to live in a place with gas isn't it?
I lived in a place before where the stoves were electric, heaters were electric, and even hot water came from the municipal heating plant that got cold after 15 minutes of shower


I guess so, but I never really pay much attention to it. I think I'd prefer electric stuff,except for these bad scenarios where the power is out for a sustained period


File:R-1681088756713.jpg (3.12 MB,3072x4080)

Iunno, my water heater is pretty shoddy. Here it is, after a gust of wind turned it off earlier today, I'm about to turn it back on.
The instructions say you have to hold down the left side of the middle thingy for 20 secs before selecting a heat setting but it often resets anyways and requires multiple tries. The stove isn't in great shape either, though it's not as finicky.
Do not envy those 15m showers though, that sounds awful. I'm very slow when it comes to those.

Heh, first try. Enlightened is the rank above it, but it's arguably NG+. Guess all the meta finally paid off.


To other ESLs, does your native otaku community have any interesting idiosyncratic practices?

A few years ago, a new practice developed in Spanish-subbed OP/ED videos: rather than keep the subs at the bottom and/or top, they were instead both moved to the center of the screen. Large, bold italic sans serif for the translation, with smaller non-bold romaji below it. In many cases they are AMVs as well, rather than using the pre-existing video or a static image. Pic is a good example, which on top of the above has a watermark and is at 360p max, because of course it is. Compare it to these other three traditional English lyrics videos:
I searched for OPs in Portuguese, Italian, French, Indonesian, Thai, Arabic, at a glance it doesn't seem like they do this. The Chinese do have something like it, it appears:

Rather innovative imo. It looks like it started to hit the mainstream about four-five years ago, in great part thanks to a certain "meena♡" who had already been using the formula back in 2014:
They've got nearly a total of two hundred million views spread throughout a hundred and four videos, the most popular of which is Naruto's OP3 from five years ago standing at 64M views:
You can see it's a more primitive form because it doesn't yet feature romaji like the current standard. Neat.

The Spanish/Portuguese around this stuff does seem to be notably different from the others. They seem far less reserved and it gives them their own cultural identity. It kinda reminds me of the English internet 20 years ago to a degree. Well, at least this is my interpretation from what I've seen, I don't speak the language.


If I had to sum it up, I think I'd describe it as "less miserable".
People are much more forthcoming with their interests, fanfic is surprisingly more mainstream (at least with Dragon Ball, DB AF came out all the way back in 1999 and everyone knows about it, also see El Hermano de Jiren/Gohan Blanco), the attitude around loli is a lot laxer than in the anglosphere, and there isn't as much of a focus on refined taste, elitism, or fighting normalfaggotry (for better or worse). You don't have nearly as many hardcore 2D lovers as Japan's, but you don't have Anglo moralist crusaders either, and the concept of ironic weebs doesn't exist. East/west divide isn't as strong, as you can see with artists like Alkemanubis, perhaps because it's all foreign anyways.


(ps the XD in the thumbnail is to telegraph that the video is funny, we do have an ironic version of the emoticon but it's actually more like "xd")


Also, there are like only 5 million of us, so people who are into wota stuff are few and far between, and I think most of them only hang out in English-speaking communities.


Yeah, I guess that's a bit of a problem with Europe.
