R:197 / I:36 What are some interesting news articles you've read lately /qa/?
https://archive.ph/fEOkd I was surprised after reading this that of all companies Apple implemented a privacy measure that lost them money.

R:24 / I:11 (sticky) Welcome to Summer Time of fire and smog
But also Lemonade!!!
This season, Summer ends on Saturday, Sep 23
R:212 / I:10 Have you watched anything neat on youtube or similar sites lately? Don't just link it, mention why you like it! This is a re-enactment of the American Psycho dubs man scene with Weird Al and Huey Lewis. There's some very nice attention to detail and the humor is great. Somehow it's 7 years old and I never saw it.
If I'm not going to be dumping these in IRC they're going here
R:10 / I:6 hi if you are reading this i hope you have a great day thank you for reading this
R:15 / I:7 Happy 9/11
R:21 / I:5 Is kissu familiar with "e-bikes" at all? They seem like an interesting concept and something I could benefit from using. To me the problem with bicycles (or walking) more for transportation to the store and such is that I'm worried about the ride home. Maybe I'll get too tired, or it gets too dark or or other such issues. Having a bicycle that I can pedal normally, but then turn on for assistance seems like a really nice idea. Though, I'd really want one I could load with groceries... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electric_bicycle
R:15 / I:5 Check out this video
R:31 / I:13 it is too hot please turn the heat down thank you
R:6 / I:3 海だ!!
R:7 / I:5 I remember someone once posted a chart like this with Japanese runes and asked us to guess their meaning, but what about this anglo-saxon rune chart? These are proto English letters, but they also have names that are concepts or objects. Well, most of them, some of them are apparently still mysteries to modern anthropologists. (remade the thread because some of the remaining text was still spoiling things)
R:13 / I:7 popcorn
R:4 / I:2 Kum & Go
R:16 / I:6 which one do you like most
R:11 / I:1 do you like this
R:4 / I:1 The spring carrot harvest was quite large
R:28 / I:5 Uhh, people in blog thread are talking about youtube ideologies and feet or something and it doesn't belong in the blog thread so here's a thread for it. The subject of "youtube ideologies" makes me I think it's more of a fit for the seasonal boards. So, here it is. BRACE FOR POST MOVING!
R:1 / I:0 There's a minor hurricane (Category 1 which is weakest while still having the label) hitting the Western US and Mexico and there might be some interesting pictures coming from it. Here's one with Death Valley flooding, one of the driest places in the US that's also known for being the hottest place on Earth. Of course it doesn't take much to flood a desert, but it's bizarre to see.
R:5 / I:2 Studio Blanc. is shaping up to be a leader in the foot animation industry.
R:32 / I:27 Whats your favorite set of playing card?
There is more than you think, and even if you have no interest in card games of any kind, they're nice pieces of art from the culture and setting of their time.
I'm sure most of you don't care about the pre-industrial royal decks, but if you're from an English speaking country, you may not know that you use a French deck and that the German, Spanish-Italian and Portuguese (†) have/had different suits.
Pic related is from 1933, and is a war deck, it feels more modern than a lot of card packs produced today, which often try to invoke feelings of the past. My brain is so fried by modern media that my first thought to seeing pre-80s Americana was "Wow, this is like Fallout!", dumbly taking a couple of moments before realizing this is the iconography Fallout, especially OG fallout was recreating.
Asians have their own decks, and East Asians have several, I'm sure you know about Hanafuda and Sakura but the Chinese may have invented playing cards entirely!
R:13 / I:4 Are there any cool plants where you live? Down here's the jacarandá, it's kinda like the sakura but purple instead. Spring makes streets look like a royal parade. Very cool tree, lovely stuff.
R:12 / I:8 describe a video and ill try to make it
R:43 / I:7 Well. So. I did meth for the first time today, it was fun, but not as much as I expected. Five minutes after snorting I had some really nice bodily sensations and euphoria, but then... Felt normal for the rest of the time, well, I don't really know what's my normal anymore because I'm always on ADHD meds, which are amphetamines. So, yeah, I guess my normal is focusing on something stupid. Two days without sleep now. I don't know why I'm writing this, sorry if it's not the right place for it. I feel a bit sad. Well, maybe I should be glad I didn't crash real bad and felt an insane urge to redose... and fry my brain in the process. Well, I should be still feeling it since it lasts very long. I'm kinda scared now.
R:7 / I:1 People say they're sick of irony, but then they turn around and watch shows like Pop Team Epic that are absolutely packed with it, so what gives?
R:23 / I:10 Have you seen any cool wild animals lately? (if you're in a city, maybe there's a cool pigeon or rat or something?)
I saw five, yes FIVE of these guys flying around last week but forgot to make a thread about it. I can hear one of them outside right now and it's pretty nice. They're not as big as a hawk, but there's still a noticeable size difference between them and most birds. I once saw one catch a cicada in the air and land to eat it. Pretty cool.

R:5 / I:5 Welcome to Summer, For the rest of us... Welcome to Winter!
Board for the season and events happening within seasons. Home to the news, girls, and moths
This season, Summer ends on Thursday, September 22
R:1 / I:0 The season of orange juice has come to an end
R:8 / I:1 Any Need For Speed otaku?
R:2 / I:1 dat end of summer blues
R:1 / I:0 come on in the water's fine
R:6 / I:3 Happy Sumall!
R:2 / I:0
This month's flower: Aster (and Morning-Glory)!
R:7 / I:4 Why the H*CK is most of September considered summer? I am freezing to death here!
R:5 / I:0 Do you ever think about how much CO2 could be building up indoors and how that could be impairing your thinking? Well, if not, maybe you should!
R:4 / I:0 Oh no, Haruhi saw her own shadow and got spooked! Eight more weeks of summer!
R:6 / I:5
R:6 / I:1 This months flower(August)... Poppies!
R:13 / I:1 Something everyone should experience is to be in at least a semi-wooded area and to sit outside during a windy rainfall and feel refreshed from the soothing atmosphere. You don't need many trees, just enough for a good amount of rustling sound. I wonder why it is that things like rain has such healing properties to the mind when it can be quite dangerous to us health-wise if we didn't have shelter.
R:16 / I:4 AC is an invention created to spread germ particles into the air and reduce the household oxygen percentages. You will never succeed at life if you don't have your windows open and wearing light clothing
R:16 / I:3 If we go to Mars, what people forget is that mars has very little in the way of nutrients in the soil or even nitrogen in the air. Almost every nutrient we need will have to come from earth in some way, even the nutrients that go into the plants that we grow there. What does this mean? It means that everything is going to have to be reused, everything. We can't afford to let bodies be put into the ground and waste 70kg of nutrients that we brought up from earth, humans will have to be eaten or else the colony won't be able to sustain itself. Everything has to be part of a sustainable cycle of nutrition.
R:11 / I:3 sure is summer in here
R:14 / I:2 > Made with rice
R:7 / I:0 REEEEEEEEEEE-AAAAAAH REEEEEEEEEEE-AAAAAAH REEEEEEEEEEE-AAAAAAH REEEEEEEEEEE-AAAAAAH REEEEEEEEEEE-AAAAAAH REEEEEEEEEEE-AAAAAAH REEEEEEEEEEE-AAAAAAH REEEEEEEEEEE-AAAAAAH REEEEEEEEEEE-AAAAAAH REEEEEEEEEEE-AAAAAAH REEEEEEEEEEE-AAAAAAH REEEEEEEEEEE-AAAAAAH REEEEEEEEEEE-AAAAAAH GOD WHY WON'T CICADAS EVER SHUT THE HELL UP?! The ones in Japan seem to sound slightly less annoying, but jesus christ there's at least one outside in a tree that will keep going for like 20 minutes at a time. So. Annoying.
R:23 / I:2 Summer EXTREME biking
R:43 / I:9 Hello, I just foubd out about this image board. I'd like to know if there are any informations I should know before starting to post (getting to know the culture & other cringe).
Also, do you guys like Vtubers?
R:45 / I:13 Does k/sum/ have any insects that don't drive them insane? I really like moths.
R:7 / I:2 Just came back from my summer exploring.
Today I visited my local graveyard. I was pretty surprised to see that it was built more like a tourist attraction with a section of houses that rich people built for their families, some nice ponds, nice gardens for the jewish people and in the back a nicely built section for WW2 veterans with an old 105mm howitzer on display.
Not sure if I'll visit it again any time soon though, maybe in a few decades.
R:15 / I:3 Remembered I forgot how to jog
R:8 / I:6 August
R:8 / I:2 Japanese konbini cat
R:7 / I:0 50% off to keep you warm during summer!
R:18 / I:8 It's too hot... why can't it be cooler...
R:2 / I:2 The summer nut!
R:1 / I:0 UMI DA!
R:3 / I:2 how could this happen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
R:7 / I:2 Aahh...
R:4 / I:2 Lolicons can rest easy. The internets have become a bit safer now.
R:26 / I:7 Have you been staying in shape this summer? Remember your body is always working for you even when you don't want to for it! Make sure to drink water and stay away from energy drinks or soda. Take it easy and move slow if need be! Your body will thank you, keep it up long enough and maybe someone special will attract to you...

Bored/Free thoughts thread
I have some nonsense to ramble a bit about but nowhere to say it and nothing developed enough to warrant its own thread.

R:8 / I:3 Welcome to Summer,
The season of frolic and heat, prudes close your eyes. May your tabitabi be magical.
This season, Summer ends on Wednesday September 22
R:1 / I:0 ｷﾀ───(ﾟ∀ﾟ)───!!
R:5 / I:1 ｷﾀ───(ﾟ∀ﾟ)───!!
R:2 / I:0 haha get owned mac Downclocking your CPUs to get away with poor case design
R:3 / I:0 OS and hardware engineering must be a total pain in the ass... having to program in failsafes for cosmic rays causing errors in numbers
R:4 / I:0 But I...I already have those symptoms *sniffles* ;__;
R:81 / I:9 coronavirus!!!
R:19 / I:2 This is definitely not good. There's going to be some severe damage from high winds and intense flooding. I read that this could be the strongest hurricane to hit the area in a century, so it's going to be a major test of any improvements made to infrastructure since Katrina.
R:4 / I:2 cool transportation system
R:3 / I:1 Despise this accursed season and it's hellish heat. I can't get any sleep like this...
Every day we're inching closer to a futuristic world of science-fiction. Wonder which writer will have gotten it right when the time comes.
R:10 / I:3 Is it moral to kill if the lives lost result in the saving of a considerably larger number of others?
I thought about this after watching some videos on Chronic Wasting Disease, which is a transmissible neurodegenerative prion disease among deer. Principally, the main method of containment revolves around culling infected populations and maintaining surveillance on spread.
Could you foresee there ever being such an infectious disease among humans where the moral thing to do would be to kill infected people?
R:6 / I:0 When did they make a live action adaptation of Sport Climbing Girls?
R:4 / I:0 If a strong tornado were to come tearing through your home, how safe would you be in an ordinary basement?
R:9 / I:1 Has Kissu followed the Olympics at all? Apparently, Simone Biles, a 4 time Olympic Gold Medalist and US athlete, had to pull out of the Olympics because the ADHD medication they take, Ritalin, is banned in Japan.
R:5 / I:2 Was busy doing editing and games for a few days now I'm behind on like a dozen seasonals why can't time just stand still while I do other stuff...
R:12 / I:1 Boy howdy these computers I tell you I can't wait to see what they bring in fact I bought one! You should see my kid on this thing I'm tellin' you he's going to build rockets some day. Oh don't tell the misses but I snuck on one night after my son got that World of webs working and something amazing God dang boobs.com I'm tellin' ya man.
R:43 / I:7 Always wondered if some of these dubious videos such as mouse trap videos and lock picking are for a demographic of psychopaths on YouTube who enjoy committing crimes.
Videos like this don't help anyone except criminals and the innocent minority of people who watch them to buy a good lock.
R:6 / I:1 So how are you enjoying the beach this summer?
R:5 / I:0 I was looking at houses a while ago, and it seems like most houses that are self-listed on places like Zillow look exactly like this. How is it that people are completely unaware that listings like this won't draw much positive attention?
R:1 / I:0
R:30 / I:2 hi
R:9 / I:3 With all these crypto explosions and stock market bull runs, I always say to myself "Dang, sucks that I missed out, guess that was a once in a lifetime oppurtunity". However, as I look around more I see that these just keep on happening left and right, and it makes me wonder, do I just need to be more perceptive so that I can catch these trends early instead of accepting things as they go? It really seems like the key to getting rich is more about paying attention to trends more than getting lucky.
R:3 / I:0 going to the fireworks festival with /qa/
R:5 / I:1 Space X's Rocket, Starship is going to have 33 engines in the first stage and 9 in the second stage producing around 80MN of thrust and could send 150t to Low Earth Orbit in theory(or so they claim) but the number of engines keeps changing(getting bigger). Saturn IV had 5 in the first stage, 5 in the second and 1 in the third producing a bit over 40MN of thrust and was capable of sending 140t to Low Earth Orbit. So for half the Thrust Saturn V could send 95% of the payload that Starship can to Low Earth Orbit, and Starship has never even proved that it can do this. The engines for Saturn IV were designed in the 50's too(but they use Kraut Space Magick I guess).
Much of this is due to how awful the design of Starship is, it's a meme con, the Hyperloop of space(or the sky so far) if you will. Additionally, I don't believe Starship will be capable of making the landing that it is planned for it. They have had trouble sending the Starship second stage only 50km and landing it, they only managed it once and for all the talk of testing reusability they never flew it again which shows what shape it was in, sending the whole thing to orbit and back and then sending it back up without severe repair is something completely different.
The Problem is the design, not only does the poor form and design of it mean that it spends more energy going up but it also means it will be under quite a bit of stress coming down. The Larger a surface is the more friction it creates and the more heat and pressure it will be subject too, the ship itself is not rigid or reinforced in anyway either while at the same time as being fat it is also long(and that length will create uneven pressure and friction), that is ALOT of stress for a hollow shell of thin steel strips to handle, the fuel within makes it little better than a time bomb as well, sure it will pressure the interior to degree but it will not be enough and a rupture may prove to be catastrophic. And that is before this hulk even hits the ground. This is a lot of money to spend on a meme.
R:5 / I:1 What if instead of there being trillions of very tiny bugs it was like Pokemon and there was the same amount of mass, but spread across much larger bodies? In many ways it would be terrifying that they existed, but I bet we wouldn't been
R:7 / I:3 on our way to fall
R:3 / I:3 Was reading about how Florida's getting another hurricane and it made me go on my bi-annual weather mini-research session. Mother nature is truly terrifying.
R:12 / I:7 make sure you go camping /sum/ its a lot of fun!
R:4 / I:3 Talking fish, huh. Neat.
R:6 / I:0 >We're sorry~
R:3 / I:1 Ah Quebec such a fair and just province that doesn't want to supersede and control others. (Yes this is a spite thread.)
R:7 / I:2 Haha funny robot. These totally won't be equipped with firearms by the decade's end. Definitely not.
R:5 / I:3 Are mermaid sightings more common in Summer?
R:7 / I:1 This post and the person behind it are a constant pain to me. If this post (>>73995) isn't deleted forever in the next 24 hours, I'm going to kill myself. You have an opportunity to stop my suicide.
R:4 / I:2 Ah yes, Montreal A common place for equatorial weather conditions.
R:1 / I:1 Don't forget to stay hydrated and have lots of fun this summer!
R:3 / I:0 summer is the season of bug juice!
R:3 / I:0 I had the very smart idea of going on a hike with no food, water and a half dead phone battery also while only having had 4 hours sleep and alone. I didn't know the trail well at all and got lost for over 5 hours, it's a good thing I work well under pressure and know basic survival. Never be over-confident in your abilities when dealing with nature or Gaia will make you regret it until your humble again... Also it's true that your senses spike when under adrenaline I heard sounds I didn't pick up on when I wasn't lost and saw creatures at a further distance.
R:14 / I:2 Ouch, is this true? This is on kemomo party
R:10 / I:1 Finally, this isn't in development hell. While the trailer for this doesn't look like anything special, the brain behind it is the same that brought forwards the widely acclaimed (by critics and imageboards) Bladerunner 2049, and he's been stated in the past as being a fan of the Dune series. I'm not sure if kissu's ever read the books, but they were really intriguing and fun reads, and I'm excited to see a (proper) adaptation of the series.
R:3 / I:2 The summer solstice is here! The longest day of the year! That means it's after this it's finally going to start getting dark again.
So with the 20X series being made obsolete not even a year after its introduction, how long will it be until the 30X series sees it's successor...
R:0 / I:0 LAST POST

R:9 / I:7
A late summer morning, wrapped up in a dream
Chapter 1: Turn of a new day Dead at night is when I woke up. It was as the clock stroke 12, the turning of a new day, my wake came about. Woken up from yet another bad dream, I stepped to the kitchen to freshen up and grab a bite. I warmed up in a pan some of yesterday's leftover ground beef, the crispyness of the pan recooking made it pretty delicious. I mostly watched youtube, chatted, and try to take my mind off the dreams and the drowsieness. My windows, now closed for over a day since a heatwave left the apartment hot and filled with CO2. After some more relaxation, I fell asleep again.
