>. It was a landmark on caravan routes through the Ténéré region

Could it be that because it was the only landmark, surrounded by 100s of KM of empty desert, truckers would drive near it to know where they are on the map. So its very isolation increased its chances of being hit. Since truckers are navigating by it

 No.290474

i dont know, still sounds silly to hit the only tree in such a desolate area. why would someone be driving and not be looking forward for so long that they hit something they could have seen from miles away? i would think it would make more sense if there were other trees or structures to break up the horizon.

i mean it was already hit once before getting knocked over. you think after tgat they would put a barrier or something around it to protect it a little. if it happens once its just a matter of time before it happens again

I've been reading through the list of known carcinogens recently ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IARC_group_1 ). It surprised me to see stuff processed meat an alcohol consumption on the list, but on the other hand…I'm surprised that alcohol consumption hadn't been on the list for decades already like tobacco has.

Anyways, it got me thinking about air pollution. In particular, radon and formaldehyde (and ethylene oxide) exposure. Particularly because they neatly overlay cancer incidence rates per capita.

I've been thinking about the hard-g v. soft-g 'gif' debate. Particularly because now I understand that the whole point was the make it a homophone with the abbreviation of 'jiffy' (so you can say the sentence "A gif will load in a jif"). Because of that, I think I might be changing my mind to the soft-g side, but there's one point that sticks with me:

Usually, when you take a word that's part of another word, the pronunciation is shared and thereby somewhat consistent. For example, if I only heard the word 'nightmare' I could guess that the word 'night' is going to sound the same as the first syllable of 'nightmare'. From this perspective, wouldn't I use the hard g in 'gif' because it would otherwise be inconsistent with the word 'gift'?

 No.290788

>the whole point was the make it a homophone with the abbreviation of 'jiffy'

Didn't think this would deserve a new thread so I will write it here.

Anyone disgusted with muscles and muscular people generally? I just can't understand why our culture considers people with muscles as the ideal of beauty when it comes to humans. The Greeks and Romans were obsessed with this trend too. Why? To me a thin or fat individual looks better than a fit one. Not talking about extremes like anorexic people or 300 kg whales who can't even walk. But I don't understand why society is so fixated on muscles. To me muscles scream "SLAVE - made for hard physical labor!" All this gym "culture" and fixation on appearing fit and "perfect" makes me nauseous. Not talking about only roid muscles, I find natural muscles disgusting too. I remember I felt like vomiting when watching some Bruce Lee movies.

 No.290796

>>290795
I agree with the roid ones but Bruce Lee looks alright though, it looks like muscles you can actually use, doesn't look like it's fucking up his health or his posture.

Roided people do look like farm animals though. They can't even walk straight, really nasty. But I think that's what most people think outside the bodybuilding communities.

 No.290800

>>290795
For me it’s just that I’ve had so many negative experiences of fit people being nasty to me without cause that I immediately dislike and mistrust them. I’ve also never met one that wasn’t kind of dumb/vapid.

 No.290803

>>290796
Bruce Lee actually pretty much wrecked his body with the constant training if I remember right. He was always in some kind of pain because he over-trained himself. I mean, when watching his movies I feel like he is going to explode one moment because…he looks so tight and muscular. It is unnatural. Being thin or fat looks way more natural to me than muscles.

>>290800
I understand you. But even the looks of muscles frightens me and makes me sick nowadays. It's like I instantly think about how much work and effort needs for someone to look like that.

 No.290810

>>290795
I think the "disgusting" thing about Bruce Lee is that he's extremely low body fat. He would look better if he had some more fat. And obviously being that low body fat is also itself unhealthy regardless of looks. But if he had some 20%+ body fat you would probably not even be able to tell that he's particularly muscular because the fat would hide it.

muscles that develop naturally from physical labor are fine. they need those muscles to accomplish their job. it is a completely transparent and honest physical appearance… maybe hundreds of years ago. gyms and muscle training and ruined this however. now, anyone can have big muscles. a regular accountant or software engineer can get huge. i find it ridiculous, it's dishonest, you can't tell the kind of person they are from their appearance. skinny and fat people, while i don't agree withthose lifestyles, at least are honest. you can't pretend to be anorexic or obese. it is a lifestyle choice carved into your flesh. those at least are honest, unlike bodybuilders

Hm, yeah, you are right I think. He looks like a…I don't even know how to describe it exactly, like a big hard shit that pops out of your asshole. He is just way too…monolithic? Or he is like an erect penis. Something ready to explode. I don't know what the appropriate term is, excuse me. I just know I can hardly watch some of his movies, especially the one with Chuck Norris. He looked the worst in that if you ask me. So ripped and pure 100% muscle that I could barely look at the screen lots of times.

>>290812
I like his movies. My only problem is with his appearance. Watch the one with the ice factory in it. That is the darkest and best one imo.

>>290813
Yeah, I mean I don't have a problem with strong people generally, just those persons who are big part muscle and have low body fat percentage. Some fat is necessary in order to be pleasing to the eye.
>gyms and muscle training
These aren't new things, ancient world had a fixation on it too. I mean pre-christianity. And I think native people in Africa or on islands look good too, they don't have too much muscle like in the case of someone who deliberately tries to be all ripped.

>>290815
There is something to what you say too, when I see people like Bruce Lee I instantly go start to feel sick because I think about how much training and suffering this guy endured day after day to stay in shape. I don't understand honestly why so many men are obsessed with being ripped. Or rather I understand it, because succubi like it and because it gives the impression of a strong warrior male. But if you ask me? Muscles are fugly.

i found this cool article
>Q: Why do we say some animals have “hair” while others have “fur”?
>A: All mammals have hair—dogs, cats, foxes, pigs, gerbils, horses, and people. Even dolphins have a few whiskers early in their lives. Scientifically speaking, there’s no difference between hair and fur.
>“This is all the same material,” Dr. Nancy Simmons, a mammalogist with the American Museum of Natural History, said in a 2001 interview with Scientific American. “Hair and fur are the same thing.” She added that there are many norms for hair length, and that different kinds of hair can have different names, such as a cat’s whiskers and a porcupine’s quills.
>Well, science is one thing but common English usage is another. Most of us do have different ideas about what to call “hair” and what to call “fur.” For example, we regard humans as having “hair,” not “fur.” And we use “hair” for what grows on livestock with thick, leathery hides—horses, cattle, and pigs. But we generally use “fur” for the thick, dense covering on animals like cats, dogs, rabbits, foxes, bears, raccoons, beavers, and so on.
>Why do some animals have fur and others hair? The answer lies in the origins of the noun “fur,” which began life as an item of apparel. In medieval England, “fur” meant “a trimming or lining for a garment, made of the dressed coat of certain animals,” according to the Oxford English Dictionary. The source, the dictionary suggests, is the Old French verb forrer, which originally meant to sheathe or encase, then “developed the sense ‘to line,’ and ‘to line or trim with fur.’ ” When the word “fur” first entered English, it was a verb that meant to line, trim, or cover a garment with animal hair. The earliest OED use is from Kyng Alisaunder, a Middle English romance about Alexander the Great, composed in the late 1200s or early 1300s: “The kyng dude of [put on] his robe, furred with meneuere.” (The last word is “miniver,” the white winter pelt of a certain squirrel.) The noun followed. Its first known use is from The Romaunt of the Rose, an English translation (from 1366 or earlier) of an Old French poem. The relevant passage refers to a coat “Furred with no menivere, But with a furre rough of here [hair].” The noun’s meaning gradually evolved over the 14th and 15th centuries. From the sense of a lining or trimming, “fur” came to mean the material used to make it. Soon it also meant entire garments made of this material, as well as the coats of the animals themselves.
>Oxford defines that last sense of “fur” this way: “The short, fine, soft hair of certain animals (as the sable, ermine, beaver, otter, bear, etc.) growing thick upon the skin, and distinguished from the ordinary hair, which is longer and coarser. Formerly also, the wool of sheep” [now obsolete]. Note that this definition establishes the distinction between the special hair we call “fur” (short, fine, soft), and “ordinary hair” (longer, coarser). The dictionary’s earliest citation is a reference to sheep as bearing “furres blake and whyte” (circa 1430). The first non-sheep example was recorded in the following century, a reference to the “furre” of wolves (Edmund Spenser, The Shepheardes Calender, 1579).
>From the 17th century on, examples are plentiful. Shakespeare writes of “This night wherin … The Lyon, and the belly-pinched Wolfe Keepe their furre dry” (King Lear, 1608). And Alexander Pope writes of “the strength of Bulls, the Fur of Bears” (An Essay on Man, 1733). But a mid-18th-century example in the OED stands out—at least for our purposes—because it underscores that “fur” was valued because it was soft and warm: “Leave the Hair on Skins, where the Fleece or Fir is soft and warm, as Beaver, Otter, &c.” (From An Account of a Voyage for the Discovery of a North-west Passage, 1748, written by the ship’s clerk.) Elsewhere in the account, the author notes that deer or caribou skins were “cleared of the Hair” to make use of the skin as leather.
>As for “hair,” it’s a much older word than “fur” and came into English from Germanic sources instead of French. The word was spelled in Old English as her or hær, Oxford says, and was first recorded before the year 800 in a Latin-Old English glossary: “Pilus, her.” (In Latin pilus is a single hair and pili is the plural.) By around the year 1000, “hair” was also used as a mass or collective noun, defined in the OED as “the aggregate of hairs growing on the skin of an animal: spec. that growing naturally upon the human head.”
>In summary, most of us think of “fur” as soft, cuddly, warm, and dense. We don’t regard “hair” in quite the same way (even though it technically includes “fur”). “Hair,” in other words, covers a lot more bases. But in practice, English speakers use the words “hair” and “fur” inconsistently. People often regard some animals, especially their pets, as having both “fur” and “hair.” They may refer to Bowser’s coat as “fur,” but use the word “hair” for what he leaves on clothes and furniture. And when he gets tangles, they may say that either his “hair” or his “fur” is matted and needs combing out. Furthermore (no pun intended), two different people might describe the same cat or dog differently—as having “hair” or “fur,” as being “hairy” or “furry,” and (particularly in the case of the cat) as throwing up a “hairball” or a “furball.” They simply perceive the animal’s coat differently. Our guess is that people base their choice of words on what they perceive as the thickness, density, or length of a pet’s coat. The heavy, dense coat of a Chow dog or a Persian cat is likely to be called “fur.” And the short, light coat of a sleek greyhound or a Cornish Rex is likely to be called “hair.”
and to add, for specific animals we might have an individual word, like a sheep's fleece

For about a month now there's a new apartment manager where I live. Guy in his mid 40s, bald with a huge mustache, kinda reminds me of Robotnik. He lives alone with a small dog, looks like the wiz type. I met him in the lobby twice on his day off with his dog and said 'nice dog' and small talk like that. I never do this but for some reason this guy with the old poddle just gets it out of me. He just goes 'yeah..' and shutsdown. Which is fine, I do that too. An interesting thing just happened though. I was taking out the trash and I listened to him having a very engaged conversation with the janitor inside the supply room (the garbage place in this building is just besides the room where janitorial tools are kept). Talking about his dog and how he came out with a perfect dog food that is much better than the shitty pellets you get in pet stores and whatnot. This guy was laughing and having a great time with the coversation he was having. Completely different behavior.

Anyway. That was interesting.

I get it. It was nice not having a bunch of improvebrush screaming, "CRAB! ARE YOU A CRAB?! CRAB! CRAAAAB!" in your face because you don't want to hear bullshit about jobs and fitness while laughing at your waifu and saying you're not glorifying God enough and being a waste playing videogames. For as long as I can remember talking about anime, games, and good music without the relationshit of /r9k/ ("I can't find gf :'("), the extreme politics of /pol/, or the white knighting progressive correctness worship of Reddit ("As a succubus/black man/etc. I have to say that…") was Wizardchan's main selling point. A place to be honest and openly admit blackpilled thoughts without getting shouted down for "being a crab". It was a place to get away from the worst of /r9k/, /pol/, and Reddit–but now it seems destined to become them.

I want to listen to Chillhop while playing Sanic games and reading shitty Chinese comics while complaining about how miserable life is on the side.

On the flipside I discovered what that little [-] thing next to the checkboxes does (I've been here for years and honestly have not noticed it), so that's a small help, at least. Also, I think the mods have taken at least a somewhat halfway decent stance of "We can't stop it, but we can keep it contained into one or two threads." So, now that I've [finally] discovered the [-], at least I never have to look at the Politics or Wageslave general threads.

Hating on fat and/or ugly people is pathetic but who likes ugliness? Only modern artists doing awful looking paintings for tax scams like ugliness, because then they can afford to live in nice looking places. Everybody else probably doesn't. Every time someone posts pictures of ugly people (actually I block all 3D ppl images) or ugly shit in general I just obliterate the picture with ublock. This is the internet, we can have have a visual paradise, or at least something interesting to look at with every post, why the fuck would you want to have an ugly looking ib to come to? Real life is ugly enough.

I realize my post is mostly tangential to what you're referring to though.

im kinda fat, but there's so much easily accessible sugar everywhere and soda has so much sugar and it's all addicting and i can understand how easy it is to get obese for a lot of people
i don't really blame fat people for being fat, i mean im kinda fat and i'm comfortable the way i am, but not comfortable with people making fun of me for it, so i don't make fun of fat people or obese people because for all i know, they might be comfortable with their weight, even if it might be unhealthy, or maybe it's just something they know might be a problem and they're working on it. idk what their situation is, but it really bothers me when other people immediately just go with fat jokes and make fun of them and tell them they're unhealthy and need to lose weight and all that

honestly, i think anyone who's like constantly measuring their body fat and working out and doing these extreme diets and stuff is kind of a psycho. it's like chill out dude, you don't have to look like a super model or a famous actor or whatever, just enjoy life, eat some carbs, lol

It is just another shit excuse to hate on others. And if someone says to them, "buddy chill a little" then they can answer with fake empathy, "I only bully him to motivate him to lose weight and to be healthy :D heehe". Hating on fat people is the same as hating on gays, furries and pedos. Normals want to take revenge on anyone who is different from the "objectively" holy and "true" NORM - which is (what coincidence) exactly the group they themselves happen to belong to.

>>290922
See, the problem is you think ugliness is objective and universal. But you merely adopt the majority's pov about aesthetics and what it should represent. I don't consider fat people to be ugly and don't always consider what society says is ugly as ugly.

In fact, I posit that what is beautiful truly is strange and rare. I delight in what people call grotesque most of the time. What is ugly in a society is defined by the herd and its herd values. Such sheep values no longer attract or excite me. I seek new beauty and new values and new pleasures.

Checked. My weight fluctuates a lot, but if it didn’t affect the way people treated me so much I would stop trying so hard and settle around ~20lb overweight, which seems to be a weight my body wants to defend in both directions.
> Hating on fat people is the same as hating on gays, furries and pedos.
If you look up the twin studies, there’s essentially a stronger genetic link by a small amount for BMI than for being gay, and a much stronger link than for being transsexual. People only pretend it’s a choice because it’s ugly, same as with everything else.

I hired a trainer because I knew I needed to pay someone to hekp me commit to a schedule. I won't go into specifics of the routines, because those weren't really relevant. The important thing was being consistent and working out at least two times a week.

I also didn't change my diet that much. I do track my calories but I am not that strict about it. Tracking my calories does help me be more aware of what I am eating and makes me choose healthier meals as a result.

NASA scientists say images from the Webb telescope nearly brought them to tears

Six months have passed since a European rocket lofted the James Webb Space Telescope into orbit. Since that time, the ultra-complex telescope has successfully unfolded its expansive sunshield, commissioned its science instruments, and reached an observation point more than 1 million km from Earth.

"The images are being taken right now," said Thomas Zurbuchen, who leads NASA's scientific programs, during a news conference on Wednesday. "There is already some amazing science in the can, and some others are yet to be taken as we go forward. We are in the middle of getting the history-making data down."

NASA said it plans to release several images beginning at 10:30 am ET (14:30 UTC) on July 12, the result of Webb's "first light" observations. On Wednesday, space agency officials said the images and other data would include the deepest-field image of the universe ever taken—looking further into the cosmos than humans ever have before—as well as the spectrum of an atmosphere around an exoplanet. By looking in the infrared, Webb will be able to identify the fingerprints of small molecules, such as carbon dioxide and ozone, that will offer meaningful clues about the habitability of worlds around other stars.

NASA's deputy administrator, Pam Melroy, said she was blown away by the images Webb has produced so far. "What I have seen moved me, as a scientist, as an engineer, and as a human being," she said.

The telescope is healthy. Thanks to a precise launch by the European Space Agency's Ariane 5 rocket, Webb should have enough maneuvering propellant on board for 20 years of life. And although there have already been five micrometeoroid impacts, the telescope was designed to account for these small dings with a lot of margin.
