I was watching this random documentary about agriculture and it occurred to me that documentaries are really easy things to lose yourself into, so I thought about creating a thread to share and discuss any interesting documentary about anything that might be entertaining.

Documentaries can get political so try to tone it down and not argue their ideological merits here if it comes to that.

Are there any websites just dedicated to documentaries? Youtube is unusable and you get bombarded by UFO, global warming and pro-faggotry stuff when you search them. Looking of something more wholesome and interesting where I can browse a catalog not scrape by to find 1 video.

For torrents there is https://docuwiki.net/index.php?title=Category:Subject - which is basically a wiki of documentaries released by MVgroup. You might have to browse their forum as well.

I used to use this website a long time ago https://documentaryheaven.com/watch-online/ - it does have some low quality stuff and a conspiracy category but also other categories. I presume some of them will be old and removed from youtube now though. You can browse and find titles though.

This hummus was delicious. I was surprised because the sesame seeds tasted gross by themselves, earthy and bitter. I sprouted the chickpeas and this made them taste sweet and like peas. Normally they taste nutty. I tried to sprout the sesame seeds but they only got to germination. I wasn't sure if I ground the sesame seeds enough but it tastes right in the end. I tasted it while I added stuff to balance it out. I only have a mere ceramic mortar & pestle, ordering a stronger one today. I hope those sesame seeds were ground enough to digest well because I decided to try this while looking for a cheap source of protein and saw that chickpeas and sesame seeds were a good combo.

Fun fact
The heat from your hands is the thing that usually causes psi wheels to move. Other things that tend to cause it to move is any sort of air flow whatsoever.
Not some sort of psionic force.

Here is a few tips on how to set up better experiments using psi wheels so you don't get false positives that lead you to incorrect conclusions.
They’re touchy objects and are best when used in a controlled setting. That means a room with no fans or drafts. Participants should not wear magnetic devices or lean too close to the PsiWheel Clothing that can produce a breeze should not be worn and hair should be secured as it produces a breeze as well. Using the device on one’s own, a person can mistake a breeze or other movement as telekinetic. The PsiWheel is very, very delicate in design and function and just about anything can cause it to move from wind to temperature, vibration. A careful controlled environment is a must to prevent mistakes and fraud.

I did not use my hands at all in the event referenced in that post, I simply gazed at the wheel while refining my intent and will in the thoughtform.
I've since had some success with pushing, knocking upright pieces of paper over. This requires a lot more will as you need a sudden, intense force rather than a weak sustained one. Creating a strong desire for success helps with refining intent. When I'm successful with this I can strongly feel the energy leaving me right before the object moves.
I was even able to move a square object across the floor a bit, which would have been completely impossible as just a fluke of air movement. Plus I was around 5 feet away from the object when I did it. After this my desire to pursue the subject petered off, I think it was mainly a way for me to prove 100% to myself that this stuff is real and erase any lingering doubts in my mind.

for those that believe in this 'law of manifestation' thing, how does it work?

I am a bit skeptical of it but I want to try something and am willing to throw all that skepticism I have. So how does it work, do I just 'think' of achieving the thing I want, or do I need to do more, do I need to some 'dopamine fast' (not literal fasting, but abstaining from all forms of pleasure like music, games, videos), etc for it to work???

Also can you guys explain it in simple terms (and dont say it ebonics as some joke to mock me)

 No.56207

I also heard the way it works is that you have to completely believe that the thing you want to happen has happened, for example, if you want a donut, you must 100% believe you have the donut right now in your hand for it to happen? That true or you have to do other stuff

My hobby is trolling and cyber stalking people. Does anyone else share this amazing interest. I understand it is a bit weird, but it's my only interest. I have 40+ instagram accounts larping as various females and males, to catfish my way into various random normies lives and gain followers. Every larp has a distinct personality and it's own internet friend group. I also do this on twitter, and facebook. Anyone else share the interest?

The only sad part is none of my friends know who I am ,I am a 48 year old wizard neet. But through these personas, I can be anyone I desire.

I like wrecking sites with sophisticated trolling techniques.
Right now I'm having a blast with a bit of a project. I can't really give away the details, but a rough outlime would be:
>make a thread pretending to have a lofty purpose.
>smear it with the usual bait and slurs
Eventually someone bites. It's not like I am too subtle doing this, the purpose is, after all, trolling the shit out of the place. I try to make it look hostile as possible, while still pretending the thread to be about benefitting mankind and society, so as to maintain plausible deniability. The goal is to drop the overall quality of the site. You wouldn't believe this but as obvious as this sounds, people are stupid enough to keep it up and keep fueling it,
The usual trolling techniques are all in effect, including samefagging, misrepresenting the other posters, and ad-hominems.
I'm actually having a blast because the site I'm on lends itself to this really well in spite of it's pretention of keeping quality and civil discussion, but in reality it's a sort of /pol/ in disguise.

Dionysius is an interesting case, because ancient Christians thought that he was actually the Dionysius in the New Testament, rather than someone copying later Neo-Platonism. So his theology had an influence far outweighing his real significance.

I'm reading Ockham's philosophical works right after finishing Scotus and Aquinas. Medieval philosophy is often overlooked, but it's surprisingly engrossing and rich of epistemological takes despite its reputation.

Crucifax is basically a dark retelling of the Hamelin Flautist, and a rant against the scholar system, which doesn’t let the counselors help the students. Mace, the villain of the novel, offers the teenagers the things they want, even if that could kill them. The story begins after all of the teenagers of San Fernando Valley have the felling of something dreadful will happen. It is a good example of 80s horror, the scene with mace in the sewers has to be the most disgusting thing I ever read in my horror file. The novel talks about things like teenagers problems, real problems like drug addiction, teenage pregnancy, Incest (Jeff wants to fucks his sister, even if he knows that’s disgusting) but, Ray Garton is not justifying it like George R. R. Martin. And real ways to help young people with problems like that.

In Canada, SBS are legal and non-registered so long as they're 26" OAL. In the case of the coach gun and the lever action, their OAL exceeds 26" despite their short barrel length. The quirk about this though is that the barrel has to be made short from the factory. If you have a 35" OAL with a 20" barrel and saw even 1" off the barrel, that becomes an illegal barrel despite the OAL being legal. If you saw the stock off completely and have just a barreled action that still exceeds a 26" OAL, then that is fine. Buying a barrel that was made short from the start - as in no modification to the length after it left the factory - you can replace the longer barrel on a shotgun with this factory short version legally, again so long as it meets OAL requirements. If you want to go deep, a licensed gunsmith may shorten, test, and safety approve a barrel and sell it, or if in doing so he lowers the OAL of his gun below 26", he may register the whole package as a restricted firearm and sell it to a restricted license holder.

>pre-1900s shotgun designs

Not sure how it is in the states but up here, (most) guns with a manufacture date before 1898 is considered an antique firearm which puts it on the same legal level as an airsoft gun from the hardware store. If it's a reproduction like the 1887 I have that was made in china 3 years ago, then it's not technically an antique. Unless it's a flintlock or wheellock black powder firearms in which case replicas of models preceding 1897 are often considered non-firearms.

If i sawed off my barrels illegally of course I wouldn't rush to FBIchan 2020 to blog about it

every time I look a new "tactical" sword comes out and it's spring tempered and they make it a big selling point, about how it's so soft you can bend it into a U shape, you might as well get a $10 machete then

Wait, are they saying "you can force it into a U shape and it will return to true" or "it can easily be bent into a U it's so flexible"? Spring temper is about it being able to flex under stress and return to true instead of getting a set bend or snapping, it's not supposed to be about it being soft.

>"you can force it into a U shape and it will return to true"
they're saying that part, the thing is though that's necessarily soft, like 45HRC soft, the level of hardness that springs get tempered down to, or a good flexible wood saw, they're obviously thicker/stiffer than a wooden hand saw but just as soft, that means poor edge holding

 No.56007

Not sure if I should make a game for an actual 8-bit system or make a game for modern computers that simply emulates the style of 8-bit games. I think it might be interesting to learn the limitations of old systems and how to achieve various demo effects so that I can incorporate these features and limitations into a modern game. For instance, I know that games run in either a 320 x 200 or 160 x 200 mode with double-wide pixels on the C64. The latter mode places fewer restrictions on use of color. The system is capable of being "hacked" to run in modes with fewer restrictions but games are essentially never made using these modes. There are only three channels of audio so developers have to choose between having sound effects of background music for the most part. It seems to me C64 graphics and sound are "worse" than the NES but the limited hardware is utilized in more interesting ways by programmers and that there are more layers of graphics onscreen and smoother animations/higher framerates.

Maybe making a game for an old system that looks good and actually works would shake me out of this funk that I'm in where I believe I am a mediocre programmer. Like, I could slap something together in Unity but that would do nothing for my self-esteem. Whatever I make is not going to make me any money so I might as well do the thing that makes me feel more accomplished.
