I went down a rabbit hole reading about centipedes. That's pretty interesting in its own right:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centipede
And then I came across the Amazonian Giant Centipede. This thing is Lovecraftian nightmare fuel for me:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scolopendra_gigantea
Pic related. It's over a foot long.

- The default backdrop of Kult is modern-day real-life larger cities; players taking the roles of contemporary multi-genre protagonists, such as private investigators and femme fatales, vigilantes and drug dealers, artists and journalists, or secret agents and mad scientists. In the game, however, all this and the entire world we see, is an "illusion" held together by a monotheistic belief which is unravelling to reveal a darker backdrop where nightmarish monsters lurk, called "reality" in the game.
Sounds like something wizards would understand and like to play, that rpg group on /hob/ should do a session of this on twitch or something so we could watch it.
Sounds very /pol/ and /x/ thing.
Go back to shitchan where you came from
Can you buy the game and post a review here?
You can find the books in any torrent site, reviews and gameplay of it everywhere on yt and blogs. I downloaded the books and I'm going through them, it looks pretty fun actually.
To not go too offtopic here, here's another wiki article of another rpg system I'm reading through right now:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shadow_of_the_Demon_Lord
This one looks really cool as well. I wish I wasn't such an awkward fuck so I could play that stuff with other people. Even using a mic is a nightmare for me.
Reminds of me of that one shitty rpgmaker game that is revealed to be a recruiting method for real life cults. Nope, too creepy for me. This one may also be a proselytizing medium for some new age belief for all I know.
hey it gave me one of the articles in the OP, wonder what the chances of that happening are
go buy a lottery ticket asap
This is actually real. Scientists just shrug it off because it sounds wild but if someone truly believes that they have conceived a puppy, that will affect reality. It's not just psychology like the material sciences would have you think, there's objective metaphysical ripples from this. Death for sure. I wouldn't be surprised if there were maybe cancerous growths in the womb or naval area, maybe in the shape of a dog. We don't know because no one wants to risk looking like a fool seriously trying to verify puppy pregnancy. But this is how reality works.
Serial killer who was taken out by a marine who stole helicopter, dying with over 200 bullet wounds.
ha, that's like the classical version of the "eternal anglo" meme. good find.
Robert Surcouf (12 December 1773 – 8 July 1827) was a French privateer who operated in the Indian Ocean between 1789 and 1801, and again from 1807 to 1808, capturing over 40 prizes. He later amassed a large fortune as a ship-owner, from privateering, commerce, and illegal slave trade, and as a landowner.
When a British captive officer taunted Surcouf with the words "You French fight for money while we fight for honour", Surcouf replied "Each of us fights for what he lacks most".https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Surcouf
A love these small clever retorts, here's one.
Samuel Johnson: In England we wouldn't think of eating oats. We only feed them to Horses.
Boswell: "Well, maybe that's why in England you have better horses, and in Scotland we have better men".

You wizzies might enjoy this French film from the '90s. It hasn't aged that great, but I still enjoyed it. They spend a lot of time verbally jousting with one another.>Ridicule is a 1996 French period drama film directed by Patrice Leconte and starring Charles Berling, Jean Rochefort, Fanny Ardant and Judith Godrèche. Set in the 18th century at the decadent court of Versailles, where social status can rise and fall based on one's ability to mete out witty insults and avoid ridicule oneself, the film's plot examines the social injustices of late 18th-century France, in showing the corruption and callousness of the aristocrats.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ridicule_(film)

lol sounds entertaining
Sounds exactly like the real world
damn, leave it to the french to come up with fancy names for everything
i always wonder how much of that cryptic leftist theory shit is a big joke aimed at credulous and pretentious students.
more 'art' than left i think. people in the art world write in the most fucked up way. it's like they are compensating for not producing anything of scientific value by doubling down on their bullshit by creating their own fantasy systems and fake methodologies and they just shit out nonsense.
I can see someone managing to use this to make a lot of money, like a pub owner or something coming up with a several ambient type of pub or rave or whatever, throwing that term around and making people wanting to experience it, whatever it is. It's not that far from, say, writing a story people want to hear, though I admit I don't quite understand wth is Derive.
But here's a cool article that was on the related section. I used to do that a lot before moving to a huge city. Didn't even know there's a name for that. Interesting.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fl%C3%A2neur
Theory is just a parlor trick.
Knowing obscure concepts and having the language to articulate them is only good for impressing people or trying to get laid.
Outside of academia it has zero value.
