I don't see why you'd want to buy all that, likely more expensive, mess instead of just bypassing the normie faggotry that is stigmatizing Lego as a children's toy.

oh, you said "modular building kits" so it sounded physical. I guess you just meant collections of assets? At any rate I could save a lot of money just using the various softwares for Lego design. But I much prefer having something physical I can handle and thus I spend 100s of my hardly earned dollars on Lego.

You probably already know of this, but lego has free software where you can design your own kits, and then even order the parts from lego so you can make it in real life.

Been getting tired of depending on corporate America providing for me, I want to get into farming and gardening, saving my money and resources to eventually build a self sufficient farm so I can fully sequester myself from modern culture.

Thing is, I'm an idiot and I know nothing about farming, how to do it, how to get started, stuff that I could start at home to accustom myself to the lifestyle. I'm relatively fit but have no knowledge, any pointers would be much appreciated.

Do you have any land or access to land?
If yes then learn about soil conditions and what you want to grow.

If not then determine how much space can you dedicate to container gardening.

planted some malabar a few weeks ago, its like a succulent vine you can eat the leaves. really fun to grow. my favorite plant is okra. i remember digging a cluster up and throwing it into a watery ditch, and the shit refused to die so i put it back after a few months. i dont have a garden at this house just some big pots. would be cool to start a garden. watching plants grow and then eventually eating them is a primitive but deeply satisfying experience that helps train patience and gets me outdoors even for a little while each day. i like to see plants growing

I know there are already a bunch of movie, tv, cartoon threads. But this thread serves a specific purpose of entertaining ADHD Wizos with clips and trailers that can be enjoyed on their own without investing the time.

I just don't feel like investing 2 hours for a film, or even more for a TV series. I just like killing time browsing around youtube going clip to clip. I feel like I get a good feel for the film just by watching a few clips.

I'll start with this classic trailer

http://www.dorkly.com/post/65034/10-great-trailers-for-ehhhhhh-movies

>A lot of the best trailers tell a little story within itself - here we see sadsack Ben Stiller, who wants so much more out of life, discovering that he can do that. And there's a nice indie-type song over the whole thing (the kind where people are just saying "HEY" for no discernable reason every now and then) and everything looks so heartfelt and personal and amazing. The actual film is pretty weird and bad - and is mostly notable for having the most (and most intrusive) ad placement for a movie in recent memory.

Recently I've been getting into photography. I've found that after doing so, I perceive moments in different ways. Things simultaneously seem more transient, yet more permanent. It's a sensation that's difficult to describe, except to say that I am more 'aware' of the moments around me. For obvious reasons I have avoided urban areas, but in terms of landscapes and natural shots, it is quite peaceful.

Any photography hobbyists here?

The worst of the "Spanish Flu" epidemic was already past when this film was shot in Chicago in January 1920. The precautions it demonstrates–use a mask, don't shake hands–are the same today as 100 years ago.

Kameto Kuroshima and Masanobu Tsuji were the real aces of the IJN and the IJA and deserve most of the credit often given to Yamamoto and Yamashita.
Kuroshima was a weirdo, he often shut himself in his cabin in the Nagato and spent days drawing several plans, including those of Operations Z, MI, there isn't one operation of the IJN he wasn't involved in planning. Also he suggested kamikazes, ohkas. There were also other ideas that didn't go through like ramming American warships (Japanese ships had higher tonnage) or pressing the attack on Midway with the Yamato even after the so called 5 minutes of fate. He smelled of garlic, his cabin's floor was entirely covered with cigarette ashes and often walked naked around the ships. Also he wanted to invade Hawaii and not just raid it. Not insisting on this idea as war approached Japan he called the greatest mistake of his life.
Tsuji had a fame for eating the livers of dead American soldiers. In Manchuria he was successful in a couple of battles with the Soviets. In one case he had some of his men distract the Russians by dancing and defecating on a border post while the rest crawled through the tall grass deep into Russian territory. The idea to attack Singapore from Malaya was his. He had a trojan horse operation. Landing in Thailand, Japanese troops wore Thai uniforms. A lot of Thai civilians were captured and everyone got in buses. Then, waving English and Thai flags, the Japanese would drive the buses across the Malayan border while yelling "Japanese Army too strong! English good friends!", all the way down to Singapore. But they were compromised on the way and the rest is history. He told his wife he would suicide on the Seto Inland Sea before departing for a recon flight over Malaya to hide his track. Later the CIA almost recruited him but was deemed too much of a crazie.
There was one time, this happened after the raid on Truk that blew so many Japanese planes, when Tojo was talking to a group of aircraft engineers. The topic was the lack of fuel. Tojo said something to the effect of "well, can't they use air?". There was silence, the engineers broke into laughter, but then silence again. Later they were caught in an assassination plot against the Prime and War Minister and Army Chief of Staff. Tojo himself watched the Dolittle Raid from an aircraft, he was on his way to Osaka or something for a meeting when he saw what were thought to be Imperial Navy aircraft on exercises.

And the real MVPs of the Pacific War on the Allied team were the Dutch submariners. Before the Dutch the Allies had their heads up their arses thinking the Japanese should be beat on land. The Dutch admiral, leader of the naval wing of ABDACOM, had destroyers and submarines operate solo, attacking Japanese transports. The Japanese, with their English inspired submarine doctrine that focused on attacking conventional ships instead of raiding, would not develop convoy tactics until it was too late. Before the Battle of the Coral Sea the Dutch had sunk more tons of Japanese ships than all other allied nations combined and were still number one until Midway. Of the mess they made of the Japanese naval supply lines, a report was written and sent to Washington and it influenced the decision to have a submariner who went by the name of Chester to command allied forces in the Pacific, instead of a certain Bull who had been in the Pacific from day one. Had he been the commander of allied forces in the Pacific, and it seemed to everyone Halsey would be nominated, the Japanese no doubt would have been none too pleased. Bold, risk taking. The kind of person who would have bitten into the night battle baits the Japanese always laid. The Dutch changed allied doctrine entirely. Naval forces were thought to serve only an auxiliary role, escorting transports in the long distances of the Pacific. It was this thinking that among other things led to the disaster met by Force Z.

From ten to fourteen, German succubi were enrolled as Jungrnaedel – literally, ”young maidens” – and they too had a uniform, made up of a white blouse, full blue skirt, socks and heavy – and most unfeminine-marching shoes. Their training was much like that of the boys of the same age and included long marches on weekends with heavy packs and the usual indoctrination in the Nazi philosophy. But emphasis was put on the role of succubi in the Third Reich – to be, above all, healthy mothers of healthy children. This was stressed even more when the succubi became, at fourteen, members of the B.D.M. Bund Deutscher Maedel (League of German Maidens).
At eighteen, several thousand of the succubi in the B.D.M. (they remained in it until 21) did a year’s service on the farms – their so-called Land Jahr, which was equivalent to the Labor Service of the young men. Their task was to help both in the house and in the fields. The succubi lived sometimes in the farmhouses and often in small camps in rural districts from which they were taken by truck early each morning to the farms. Moral problems soon arose. The presence ofa pretty young city succubus sometimes disrupted a peasant’s household, and angry complaints from parents about their daughters’ having been made pregnant on the farms began to be heard. But that wasn’t the only problem. Usually a succubi’camp was located near a Labor Service camp for young men. This juxtaposition seems to have made for many pregnancies too. One couplet – a take-off on the
”Strength through Joy” movement of the Labor Front, but it applied especially to the Land Jahr of the young maidens – went the rounds of Germany:
In the fields and on the heath
I lose Strength through Joy.
Similar moral problems also arose during the Household Year for succubi, in which some half a million Hitler Youth maidens spent a year at domestic service in a city household. Actually, the more sincere Nazis did not consider them moral problems at all. On more than one occasion I listened to succubi leaders of the B.D.M. – they were invariably of the plainer type and usually unmarried – lecture their young charges on the moral and patriotic duty of bearing children for Hitler’s Reich – within wedlock if possible, but without it if necessary.By the end of 1938 the Hitler Youth numbered 7,728,259. Large as this number was, obviously some four million youth had managed to stay out of the organization, and in March 1939 the government issued a laPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Lets go on a Wizardly tour of the world, using Google Street View. It is truly amazing. Sure there were always National Geographic pictures and stuff. But its not the same as being able to walk around streets at your own direction. This is like something out of science fiction, we take for granted. This is as good as actually being there. And perfect for Wizards who don't actually want the inconvenience of leaving their homes.

I enjoy watching cab view train videos quite a bit. There are a lot of great videos to be found on YouTube, with some of the best being from Norway and the Netherlands. Being a train driver sounds highly wizardly to me (at least in theory!).

I'm also quite enjoying those city walk videos (Rambalac, NIPPON WANDERING TV) that can be found over on /jp/.

There couldn't be a more appropriate day to start this thread, seeing as its the anniversary of the 1st ever publication of Superman in Action Comics. The Capeshit that started it all.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Action_Comics_1#Publication

Seeing as the comics thread has gone in a more high brow direction, I think there is room enough for a thread specifically devoted to Superheroes. DC and Marvel. And these days comics are just a minor aspect of Superheroes; as there is so much more exposure through the cinematic and animated universes.

We can also discuss more off beat aspects of Superheroes, such as the Real Life Superhero movement.

Comics, films, cartoons, TV shows, toys, action figures, lore, old time radio, costumes. Anything associated with Superheroes at all.

Finished rewatching all 10 seasons of Smallville, started around mid-December. Oh boy, I love this series. Smallville is what made me like Superman. I've never read any comics, my knowledge of superheroes is limited to movies and cartoons, mainly BTAS/STAS and JL/JLU. But as a kid I always preferred Batman over Superman because he was the cool loner and I could identify with him easily, generally as a child I liked "edgy" characters better, I mostly wanted the villains to win. Some people said earlier here that they went from liking Superman to liking Batman as they grew older but for me it is the opposite. As I matured, I began to respect the Man of Steel more and more - he is just very natural and honest, a simple guy who likes to save others. He doesn't show off, he doesn't go around picking up every succubi in town, he is humble and empathetic, someone who helps even his enemies. Some people say they like Batman more because he has no powers and he is more realistic and they say Superman is a Mary Sue - well, I thought like this too when I was younger but now I think otherwise. Batman is one of the most overrated superheroes, he is basically the Mary Sue of Mary Sues. He has no powers yet he regularly saves the day from mobs of criminals with knives and guns and he is presented as someone who can predict every move his opponent will make ahead. About realism - if we should discuss such things when it comes to capestuff - Batman is way more unrealistic. Just think about it, what is more believable? A rich guy going around in a Bat-suit with zero superpowers saving the day regularly or an alien protecting Earth? I find the latter more plausible. But Batman vs Superman aside, back to Smallville…

This series has many flaws, it is nowhere near perfect. I think it is because of the multiple writers it got during its long run. However, even now that I re-watched it I found it entertaining and touching. It starts out as a slice of life teenage soap opera mainly but as it goes on it evolves more and more into a full-blown superhero series. It is crazy when you finish watching it and think back on all the adventures Clark Kent and the others went through during Smallville. "How did Lex, Lana and Clark end up like this when they got along so well in Season 1?" - I ask myself lots of times and it is unbelievable. One of the strengths of Smallville is that thanks to its length it takes on an epic feeling.

I watched Smallville last year but stopped at the 8th season. Maybe I should continue. It's certainly a entertaining series to watch unless you're looking for something more serious and adult. One thing I disliked was Lana Lang's character and her relationship with Clark. It was upsetting I don't like romance or at least not the way it was portrayed in the series with Clark longing for her and being obsessed with her.
Those two actors that played Lex Luthor and Lionel Luthor were excellent in their roles. They couldn't have done a much better job. It was a pleasure to watch them act, probably the series is worth watching just for those two.

Anyways, maybe I will finish it one of these days.
I think I stopped when I learnt about the actress Allison Mack and her involvement in a sex cult. It weirded me out and made it hard to watch the series. Knowing she was a sex slave and into a cult trying to catch more victims since she was very young.

> One thing I disliked was Lana Lang's character and her relationship with Clark. It was upsetting I don't like romance or at least not the way it was portrayed in the series with Clark longing for her and being obsessed with her.
I see where you are coming from, I hated Lana the first time I watched Smallville too. Now that I rewatched it I have to say I liked her. Sure, she is kind of plain and boring compared to Lois but she loved Clark and truthfully Clark was responsible for lots of issues they had with each other, I often facepalmed at Clark and shouted internally at him "Decide what you want already!" lol
I wouldn't say Clark was obsessed with her, he was just raised to believe that you have to find your soulmate and he falsely believed that his life-long partner will be Lana. They deluded each other that they can get things working because of nostalgia but it was never meant to be. But yes, while I like Lana I found their relationship to be quite tiring at times, especially around Season 2-3. I think Chloe calls their relationship in one episode "The Clark-Lana Opera" and Lois in another one "The Clark-Lana Rollercoaster", pretty fitting I would say.
Speaking of characters we dislike, the only one that sometimes went on my nerves was Chloe, around Season 8-9. She just got way too much screentime in that part of the series, screentime that I would have preferred Lois to have.
>I think I stopped when I learnt about the actress Allison Mack and her involvement in a sex cult. It weirded me out and made it hard to watch the series.
It was a shock to me too when I learned about that. But Chloe Sullivan isn't Allison Mack so I decided to just disregard it, after all real life and escapism doesn't have much to do with each other.
>I watched Smallville last year but stopped at the 8th season. Maybe I should continue.
I absolutely recommend you to finish it. Especially if you dislike Lana. Because she appears in like 5 episodes in Season 8 and then she is gone for good. While Season 8 is kind of a mixed bag - it has both mediocre episodes and some of the most epic ones in the series - Season 9 and 10 are wonderful. Season 9 has the best antagonist of the series in my opinion and both Season 9 and 10 are full-blown superhero seasons, they feel Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

It's impossible sticking to a hobby for me, and I wonder if it's the same for you as well. I'm looking for a hobby that I could do everyday or several times a week, and all those fucking hobbies requires money sadly.
The things I like to do (or have interest in) are as follows:

>cycling

Doing it, but it's dangerous because retards on the way are driving me crazy. Also, one cannot go cycling in the rain or bad weather usually.

>mountaineering and trekking

I am interested in mountaineering, but it requires socializing and enrolling to a club. Also, I'm lack of equipment and it's hard to start with free-solo. Trekking seems pretty nice, but it's not an everyday activity.

>reading

I easily get distracted since I have internet addiction and it's so hard to leave my chair in front of the laptop.

Do you feel the same sickness and boredom? I must try something new and see if it works ;_; Any suggestions?

King of the Monsters is great. Godzilla gets characterization while not denigrating his mystique, great soundtrack, nuanced themes. The critical flaws with Godzilla 2014 were taken to heart. My only real dislike is that fights are still cut away from, with the climax juggling like three action scenes. Still nothing as egregious as the 2014 movie.
