The greatest men in history are more likely to be atheists than the population. Imagine if we had more atheists.
"I am also [along with fellow entrepreneurs Bill Gates, Linus Torvalds and Larry Ellison] atheist or agnostic. I’ve never been to church and prefer to think for myself." -Steve woziniak, cofounder of apple.
Some church where I go running has a sign proclaiming all the typical religious platitudes. Whenever I run by it with my dog, I say to my dog what the sign says, but change "God" to "dog." E.g., Our dog is an awesome dog! Praise be to dog! Wise men still seek dog. Brightens my morning run.
>>19728 You know what creeps me out.
The chick-fil-a cow campings.
There is something just creepy of a creature wanting me to eat another creature and it played for amusement.
It's not that I'm a vegan.
But when white Christians do it just creeps out at how they must think of there own farm animals.
and perhaps each other
ChaosEsque Anthology is a first person shooter. It is a standalone modification of Xonotic which includes extended weapons, maps, vehicles, buildable buildings, mounted weapons, spell casting, monsters, player characters, textures, and game modes.
It has over 100 maps. Some are futuristic, some are ancient, and some are medieval. A few evoke platform games such as sonic, others follow a style more akin to diablo. Some are static maps, others are randomly connected.
There is something to fit your mood. There are mutators that can add mounted weapons in any map, buildings, monsters, foliage, hazards, and even balloons and bumpers. You can fight with futuristic weapons, medieval weapons, and /or hand to hand combat (over 100 weapons). There are also many vehicles (and a mutator to spawn them in maps that do not have them, as is tradition (as you can see)).
You can also set each team to start with different specific weapons if you want to test a theory that you could defeat a well equipped military force with your bolt action rifle or crossbow. Same with vehicles and mounted weapons spawning (you can set which spawn near which team in CTF etc). You can drink wine, potions, learn magic, read scrolls, so on and so forth.
I had an amazing conversation with a Syrian who emigrated when radical Islam started taking over the country. He said in his youth, women wore skirts and there was more freedom enjoyed then than in the West today.
>>19704 That's my interpretation, not his exact words. Basically he made it sound like he said and did as he pleased. Women were easy, he could smoke and drink in the street and he studied several languages and would take foreigners on tours. He eventually fled the country in the late 80s.
>>19694 Well, if one is to believe shill Micheal Wolf's book, it's do to a fear of being poisoned. Though. the media memed this as his stupidity that probably be one of the more rational reasons where it would almost make sense to eat fast food in certain cases. Think of it: how hard would it be to off a guy who sent a trusted aid in plain clothing to one of the myriad of fast food joints, would be pretty hard to get. Still, I feel that what I've already heard on his eating is a more likely reason. A mix of esoteric preferences and his own attempts to have a blue collar image. he also needs to eat carrots to keep up the orange look
>>19689 >into OPSEC what like a fetish? I like the shit with anime ladies doin ultra violence on my fursona's dick. I probably dropped 2k last year on commissions but goddamn it was worth it, most of it in BTC so it's not like I lost anything.
>>19693 So what? Thinkpads turn me on! Ohh, their well defined edges so sharp you could cut your skin on them, their keyboards so smooth and comfortable you could sleep on it, power and network status lights blinking green, illuminating my dark world, and that glamorous trackpoint! At this point I don't even need a woman!
>>19689 I loved it as a kid, so there is some love. Now? I will miss the culture around it but I'm in the same boat. Best to kill it so I can finally mess with browser ganes! or not, because I don't like JS either

The gyno cult is real, and it is powerfully obtuse and redactive to itself. /b/ my old hoary friend of days gone by, how shall I explain it to you? Hmmmm "Democracy" as such has "demo" in this case latin prefix as I understand to mean essentially "the power of words". This allusion/definition of democracy as such, helps us because it shows us the politics><words connection That is to say, Jean D'arc and Abe Lincoln and so forth, all knew how to use words, to invoke what everyone was feeling, on all sides.
Having said that, one must ask, are women better speakers? No, but they are better mockers. No one can mock a man or tear him down, like a vagina can, and no one can make him crawl, like that very same vagina. Coming, going, or on the rag, whatever it takes to please it/she/therein that man poor bastard, will do it.
Essential touchestones/archetypes in this regard would be 1: Bene Gessrit Witches as in Dune Book One. 2: Barnabus Collins/Dark Shadows where the ladies meet and understand at once how succubi/vampires control men. 3: Blondie [all the films] Shows a modern white witch with all the gravy and trimmings, literally this set of films goes right next to Petticoat Junction, Green Acres material Beverly Hillbillies must also go in here (Ellie Mae) and also let's not forget The Munsters Yvonne DCarlo and the horribly ugly member of their family, Cousin Marylin. The point is, whatever woman you want, she's there. "I can be ALL women!" - Alien bitch from "Catspaw" ST:TOS
>>19690 On the contrary now that Trump is president its the first time we had women in control of the CIA. And there happen to be women in the Republican party as well. Not to mention (((Nikki Haley))) - a woman - was nominated as a US ambassadress for the UN.
So whatever you are hearing about "inequality in America" typically is pure utter BULLSHIT. Its the opposite in many ways today, hell if you are black you are likely more "qualified" to get the job because you have darker skin and if rejected you can scream racism and destroy a fucking company over it. So please don't buy into the "inequality" bullshit, what really matters in America today is how much money you make. Your treated better if you have money, and treated like shit if you don't. And THAT is the real inequality today.
>>19690 Nah, I'd say The Republican Party is in an insane place, as they are a mix of an old pro business elite stuck with a increasing working class base from (mostly) economically depressed areas drawing in a lot of chaotic fringe elements on the side. Only small groups of ultra hardcore conservatives tea party and old old old old paleoconservative actually believe in such level of idiocy fully to the extent the democrats meme. Still something that can be laughed at just for the mix of stupity, bad crony capitalist ideas, schizophrenia on what they believe all with sometimes some pretty good ideas mixed in the storm. have some carrots
>>19658 >the rich kids also go so they can make friends and network with the other kids from rich families, and then ignore the working class with whom they have no friends
This is likely true, but my point was these kids wouldn't need to do that and likely would not if those countries started to enforce high taxation upon their families. Those super rich families would flip the finger and move elsewhere so they could avoid that taxation. Unless every industrialized nation gets on board with taxing the rich (and good luck trying to convince them to) then its almost hopeless because - unlike us - they have the wealth to flee and even retire on private offshore resorts where their kids would have pretty much everything they needed for the rest of their lives.
I would LOVE to see a fair tax on the uber-rich spoiled oligarchs, banking/corporate elites but the fact is they own most our politicians, and not only politicians in America either. If we want change we'll have to take back our nations one by one via nationalism and hold our leaders' feets to the fire to correct some of the injustices. Also beware there is a lot of controlled opposition lurking out there as well.
>>19660 Some government is necessary, some of it complete waste and corrupted to the core. A lot of it just mismanagement (whether intentional or not).
>>19661 The "shutdown" is only partial. Most of the government is still running, they have hundreds of billions $$$ allocated from previous budgets to run on contingency for a long time if need be. If it goes on for another year or two, then you might start seeing alarm bells ringing and possibility of them running out of their emergency funds.
>>19667 There shouldn't be any shut down, all budgets should be determined by a budgeting process. There is much unnecessary instability, small business can't get approvals, and tens of thousands of jobs are being lost monthly in the private sector alone because of it. Congress, not the president is supposed took control the power of the purse per the constitution.
Bernie Sanders also said a couple days back that the 3 richest men in America own more than 50% of Americans. No one is saying anything about taking away their wealth, but high growth comes at a high cost. Google has ceased to be a company and just buys other companies and extracts their resources. For better productivity you have to constrain growth and not let it harm things like productivity, government, people, etc.
>>19700 >For better productivity you have to constrain growth and not let it harm things like productivity, government, people, etc. Only problem is that often the government with regulation just starts to choose winners and losers itself and makes things worse. Not saying I want google to stay in power, I'm more than open to gutting them, but it must be done in a true spirit of trust busting rather than putting those industries under some kind of special oversight.
If you think she's hot then you must have bad taste.
Most of them are ugly. There is only ONE of those Muslim girls that actually looked cute, and she was known as "Syrian Girl", banned from most social media because she told the truth of what was really going on over there. Yes, the CIA helped Mossad fund and arm ISIS in an attempt to overthrow Assad. ISIS are mercenaries, contracted to commit terrorism to destabilize nations. And yes I secretly have a crush on Syrian girl. I'd like to fucker her in every way you could imagine and more.
Just letting you guys know I will be stepping down as BO. I have made /mu/ to what I needed it to be and I am basically satisfied in what I set out to do. I really enjoyed the building of the community and steering it towards a good place for discussion of music. Some of you guys may have felt I tripped up sometimes and some of those times I may have or in my opinion I would have felt the right thing to do. Either way I enjoyed the experience of being BO of endchan's /mu/.
I will be transferring ownership to odilitime so you can feel a sense of relief that the board is not going to be ruined by an unknown BO. The transfer will take place 24 hours from the time this post is submitted. You can always contact me at email@example.com if you felt like shooting the shit.
This is a major fucking game changer. It means Zandronum being under a GPL compatible license can can be used to play GZDoom. http://zandronum.com/ For the free culture enthusiast you could even use freedoom and the libre licensed mods.
>>303 >>306 On 2nd thought well fug it, continue anyway with dat sprites and I will add it.
New test version 1.4.0 Test7, same link as before https://mega.nz/#F!AFUBAYqS!vbipx7ds6IY_CHdQn4eOPQ Changelog: -Added some new particle effects -Hitler Gas projectiles is changed -All Chaingun like weapons accuracy got buffed -Hitler chaingun does 8 damage now instead of 5 -Hitler flamethrower behavior is changed a bit Sorry for the weirdly formatted changlog this time I will correct it on the next version.
>>317 But Skullcrap always used some code for GZDoom? Also I am wondering if Graf is ever going to bother adding additional shading stuff for Models since they dont right now.
>>318 >But Skullcrap always used some code for GZDoom? No sorry, I got a little excited/carried away when I saw the news. For a start, it "could", not "can" but they have their own code base so it's not as easy as I thought.
>>19608 If a community doesn't get newfags it dies.
If newfags fail to integrate part of the fault for that falls on the community.
Changes within a community are inevitable regardless of newfags, there will always be some that won't like the change.
As long as the growth rate is organic there's nothing wrong with newfags.
Also pic related.
>>19645 Seems like a way to take advantage of people's anger for their money. Would this actually help people in some way or form? I'd say not really, it'd prolly just extend the time until they "explode" from their built up frustration and anger, but that would be pretty much it. It could turn into a cycle where people will go to "release" and lash out and afterwards wait until they feel like doing it all over again because they've never really solved their underlying problems. theoritically an endless cycle of spending money to make themselves feel better.
Not only do I see it as an endless waste of time, energy, and money, I also see it as a bad habit. it enables and encourages people to turn to aggression when things don't go their way, when their problems overwhelm them. Instead of seeking out solutions to their problems which causes them stress, pain, etc. they will escape to sensual pleasures.
… the woman is beautiful… she has extraordinary, womanly features… making that quite a woman, for sure… “And for everybody else in nature… not just this transcendental life-form… what is “transcended” to it… and what was “stop gating” this… reminding me of when you were stopped… how mad it was to stop it… to even go near in the first place… and even have it within your reach… daring to not reach… signalling for it to touch you… by stopping yourself within the reach… giving yourself up for it… practically letting it use you… as that extension… Which cannot be you yourself… the images which you embodied… you were represented in.”
There are hermits on youtube who look like former hippies. Do you see problems with their philosophy of simple living? I suppose they find it hard to support a family, and are often egoists, or anti-intellectual, or unproductive spiritualists, though they undoubtably have the luxury of being free and nomatic. There's a Boomer on Youtube who just wanders the desert while writing a book about his personal philosophy. He reminds me of a secular prophet, or the Cynics; I know many Zen Buddhists and city hating Romantics extol that lifestyle and condemn consumerism.
>>19623 You retard! Okay, we ca still get outta this. They're probably going to nuke the city so you can't find a dipper, so just grab a towel and stuff in your pants to hold the poop. Avoid large groups. Act as if your in a zombie movie!
>>19626 Can you buy that amount of sulfuric acid legally? If so, nice. I have a couple 12V batteries which I need replaced (or buy new acid for). I was thinking about keeping them, dumping out the old acid and filling it up with newer acid on the market. Don't know if I can find that in a hardware store now days. New 12Vs are getting expensive so thats why I ask.
PS: I'm ready and well prepared for the 'zombie' apocalypse. The cities are death traps if a financial crisis hits, or a grid-down EMP scenario. Luckily I live outside the major cities in a small rural town. If SHTF, this would be the place to bug out to.
Thats it folks. This is the entire collection I have of the Frugal Gourmet. Currently this show is being shared via Soulseek as well (a free and easy to use P2P client). Hope you enjoy the show and if so please feel free to share these episodes. They are hard to find.
