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)
>>171557>social status can rise and fall based on one's ability to mete out witty insults and avoid ridicule oneself
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.
so that's what those fucking things are. i've been down this strangely specific youtube rabbit hole a few times watching reborn routines on youtube, where kids and adults film their reborn baby's morning/night/etc routines. i think the overwhelming majority just treat them as regular dolls. there are too many videos for the grief therapy thing to be common
My first thought is that I want to dissect/"torture" these and see if it makes these people mad or not.
This virgin disabled NEET wizard was recently featured, of all people
He had some cool inventions including the thermos, self-opening doors/gates, and a typewriter for the blind.
With edge like that you wouldn't even need a knife.
I remember seeing rat kings at a zoology museum spooking me as a kid like nothing else there. Dead, lifeless stuffed tigers, wolves etc. seemed like nothing.
this story was in the top of wikipedia
idk I kinda have a "capitalist" reaction to this story. In that those who place the most value in X, will do the most to care for X.
So in her case she got a lot of attention from linguists and scientists as a "natural experiment" in child-development
and so if she had remained in their hands, they probably would have given a lot of priority to her
but instead she went with her mom, foster homes and institutions. where she was just another problem child
so it seems like it would have been better for both science and her well-being if she had remained a "science experiment". idk maybe the wiki article is just biased in that direction
Cool read, reminded me of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laura_Bridgman
a lot. Although Genie seems a much darker story. I wonder why her father didn't just off her, to lock up a child for years on end and only beat them… Really fucked honestly.
I would be really surprised if they were unaware.
Yea honestly anime takes so much from the western world, sometimes its borderline pathetic if I'm going to be honest. I guess thats just the modern global world though, sharing of culture melding everyone into the same unrecognizable blob.

You sound as bad as those wingnuts that complain about cultural appropriation.
No, they only complain about "white people" appropriating their shitty culture, which to be fair it is very cringe to see Europeans dress and speak like niggers, or get dragon tattoos. I think all cultural appropriation is cringe, just like when I see other countries wearing business suits or taking European names, gigacringe. Might as well just start bleaching their skin at that point too, pathetic subservient bastards.
Those biologists must have decided to die rather than have their work be ruined
>>174451>All food supplies to the city were cut off. There was constant shelling. People were reduced to eating anything. Dog, cats, rats, dirt, and even each other.
>But in the institute on St. Isaacs Square, the scientists were protecting the seeds and the potatoes. They were dying doing it. Some thirty scientists and staff died, essentially of starvation that winter.
>The curator of the rice collection died surrounded by bags of rice.>Kameraz and Voskrensenskaia succumbed, protecting their potatoes in the cellar to the very end.
That's the power of a higher purpose. Even if it's all just potatoes in the end.
reminds me of how humans can influence RNG by thought alone, seriously.
Märt Ringmaa - Estonian serial bomber who is responsible for the death of 7 people. Got released few weeks ago.
Mmmm…I think a bullet to the back of the head is a better outcome. No release for bomberman.
did he really get released? that can't be real, how lax is justice in estonia?
What's his motive?
Alexandra Asanovna Elbakyan (Russian: Александра Асановна Элбакян, born 1988) is a Kazakhstani computer programmer and creator of the website Sci-Hub, which provides free access to research papers. According to Elbakyan, Sci-Hub has served over a billion science articles to its visitors since 2011.
She has been described as an Internet "pirate in hiding" and "Science's Pirate Queen". Nature has listed her in 2016 in the top ten people that mattered in science, Ars Technica has compared her to Aaron Swartz, and The New York Times has compared her to Edward Snowden.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexandra_Elbakyan
They wanted to give him life but couldn´t prove he was related to all the bombings that happened around that time. As for his motive, I have no idea.
pic related is him in court with a ketchup bottle
So there are real succubus contributors to science and technology and the media only cares about useless succubi that post on instagram all day and can't even type "cd .." into their console? Wtf
honestly i have more respect for the people who host the site, they're the ones who risk getting raided by the feds and sued for mass copyright infringement
