The season of frolic and heat, prudes close your eyes. May your tabitabi be magical.
This season, Summer ends on Wednesday September 22
R:143 / I:4 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.
R:259 / I:29
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:106 / I:16 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:1 / I:0 ｷﾀ───(ﾟ∀ﾟ)───!!
R:5 / I:1 ｷﾀ───(ﾟ∀ﾟ)───!!
R:58 / I:47 going to collect Japanese girl images from terrible places
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:4 / 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:3 / I:1 Despise this accursed season and it's hellish heat. I can't get any sleep like this...
R:27 / I:11 Does k/sum/ have any insects that don't drive them insane? I really like moths.
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:5 / I:2 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: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:6 / 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:2 / I:0 Lolicons can rest easy. The internets have become a bit safer now.
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.
R:3 / I:1 Hey *snickers* /qa/ what's your *holds in laugh* favorite scary movie?
R:2 / I:0 peko peko
R:3 / I:0 Holy hell, that was huge. Did really on 78 die, or was that just confirmed at the time?
R:3 / I:2 https://sci-hub.st/https://doi.org/10.1016/j.cub.2020.06.026 >Here, I report active escape of the aquatic beetle Regimbartia attenuata (Coleoptera: Hydrophilidae) from the vents of five frog species via the digestive tract. Although adult beetles were easily eaten by frogs, 90% of swallowed beetles were excreted within 6 h (0.1–6.0 h) after being eaten and, surprisingly, were still alive. When beetle legs were experimentally fixed with wax, all of the treated beetles were killed in the frogs’ digestive system and finally excreted >24 h (38.3–150.3 h) after consumption. Therefore, swallowed beetles likely used their legs to move through the digestive tract toward the frog vent, hastening their escape. This study is the first to document active prey escape from the vent of a predator and to show that prey may promote predator defecation to hasten escape from inside the predator’s body.
R:4 / I:0 What are some good ways to ensure a long night's sleep
R:0 / I:0
R:2 / I:1 Rise in German nationalism as citizens march to take the number one country for corona infections away from the US.
R:3 / I:1 Fucking bastards are trying to infect us all with chinese flu >:[
KEEP SCHOOLS CLOSED and go to hell greedy political swine
R:4 / I:1 Any archeological economists here that can fill me in on what'll happen if that Three Gorges dam in China falls?
R:1 / I:0 Console players are big cheaters
The "good" players use thirdparty hardware to give themselves a competitive edge in multiplayer video games.
This means they can achieve no recoil and abuse aim asisst to give themselves aimbot. And the worst thing is its undetectable and all console tubers and streamers use them which tricks gullible morons.
R:4 / I:2 Wonder if with global warming people could start to live in those inhospitably cold areas in russia or alaska
R:13 / I:3 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...
R:8 / I:1 Only thing coffee dose is make me poop >:[
R:3 / I:0 why lofi hiphop sound like dentist music?
R:4 / I:1 my penis wants to ejaculate but im not far enough in my nofap journey to consider talking to women yet and its driving me crazy
R:0 / I:0
R:7 / I:1 Try not to die if you live here >Temperatures are forecast to reach as high as 120 degrees Fahrenheit in some areas, and officials are urging people to take precautions as heat this high can turn deadly.
