had a nightmare this morning that some of my online friends and i were living in this terrible dorm with showers above leaking, and trying to collect scrap copper to live, which was surprisingly profitable the scrap copper place was also supernice looking that kinda remind me of a check-cashing place, you put the copper on the scale, it prints out a receipt, then you take that to an ATM, and that does the transfer for you.

if you are pissing off a government I highly recommend having your own personal psychotic break. That will help you take psy-ops in stride hallucinations and delusions are a perfectly normal part of the human experience. I get exploding head syndrome as I try to sleep. Just as I drift off, I hear a gunshot outside, my ex scream for help, a door slam, or a window break.

setting up a new youtube shooting drill challenge, you gotta run up 6 flights of stairs with a scoped bolt action, then you got 60s to set up your bench shooting position, and then a moving target bus goes past and you only get 1 chance to nail 2 small targets

the oswald run

one of the dangers of the modern mechanized battlefield are how many human constructs become consumed with psychic energies and twist into unearthly shapes animals like horses and mules become traumatized instead, processing the horrors biologically by pretending to be wounded and developing nervous disorders naturally. A motorcycle, a plane, or a tank cannot do that and therefore becomes overwhelmed beyond reality.

it’s funny how now we get 10 billion stories about life under Taliban rule when there was none about what it’s like to live under a US sponsored Afghan pedophile warlord that kidnaps children with helicopters and is a guest speaker on CNN we had to send multiple soldiers back to the states because they became so enraged by what they saw they laid hands on the warlords or their lackeys and that was not considered conducive to our "allies"

the strange end to the circumstances of the Lin Biao incident. a tremendous figure in Chinese military history half-heartedly attempts a coup, gets into a plane, flies in circles, and crashes in Mongolia, sparking endless speculation its believed that by 1971, Lin Biao had become deeply passive and inactive. Soviet doctors diagnosed him as bipolar in 1953 but his family rejected the diagnosis. Mao and Lin drifted apart, and he refrained from public appearances and any speaking unless he had to.

LSS (Low, Slow, Small) targets such as multicopter drones and modern airplanes can be easily targeted by future laser systems. therefore, we must consider defenses against these systems now such as highly reflective paints and ablative armor

white paints like anti-flash white are the most basic defense against future laser weapons, but they may carbonize under directed energy attack

perhaps mixing in glitter or reflective metal or mica chips into the paint would help redirecting some of that energy

fluid nightmare transitions are great because even if i worm my way out of one nightmare, it seamlessly transitions into a new one

from trapped in a secret snowy mountain base with a creature, to a mean girls murder mystery plot, to just marauding teens attacking people the final one involved me taking a survivor from the mean girls mystery murder plot into a Victorian-ass looking haunted mall. i didn't realize this mall was actually a zone where there is no death because moments later i was shot in the face by one of the teens

i try not to give concrete numbers because people see those as a target to hit, not a guideline. But if we're talking about 120/122mm caliber guns and mortars, on average to achieve neutralization of hastily dug in troops you need about 150 rounds per hectare of enemy obviously, defer to your forward observers if you need more or less

and remember what you learned in class, neutralization means to disrupt the enemy and temporarily prevent them from achieving any combat maneuver, about 30% casualties

in order to maximize the chaos to the CIA and State Dept, we should all be spreading wild rumors that the Cuban Brain Beam is like a bioweapon or a US Army vaccination project gone wrong, or some other nonsense that's difficult to investigate maybe it's an ancient paleodisease that we can't detect that was sucked up from the ancient reservoirs in the California deep groundwater and only affects those State Dept and CIA personnel that ate imported foods from the US that went bad

if you're wondering about the fungal superbug, Candida auris was first discovered in 2009 in Japan and by 2011 a disease causing variant was discovered in South Korea. It is highly resistant to various antifungal drugs and is often misidentified as other candida infections. A diagram showing how they currently believe Candida auris f Climate change is turning the entire planet into a petri dish selecting for microorganisms that can only grow in warm, wet environments like the insides of our bodies, agriculture exposes them to antibiotics and antifungals, and finally these rare rural diseases migrate to cities

the reason the Romanovs died is that King George V became convinced his beloved cousin Nicky was carrying a revolutionary contagion that would cause the British proletariat to rise up too

he stuns the Foreign Office and the provisional Russian government by denying their asylum This story is usually told with King George V as a very passive figure being told "government advice", but it was he who pushed to deny it and the Foreign Office had to scramble

It's bizarre because King George V was popular and the UK proletariat had many worker protections

Even if the bombs stop, the aggression in Palestine continues. This man refuses to give up his family home in a rigged court system to settlers from Europe or America and he is viciously beaten how the housing courts work in the occupied territories is the Israelis accept paperwork, forged or obtained through shady straw deals from defunct landlords from settler organizations without question

Palestinians with British or Ottoman deeds are ignored and beaten

antisemitic vandals love too use serifed font on printer paper and attach them incompetently to a subway window. anyone who has put posters up knows this is not how you do it you have to secure the corner, else the paper will droop and sag covering up the poster, and by leaving the corners loose, you make it easy for someone to tear it down

ideally you want it to be nearly impossible to remove so taped all around

oh yeah, enjoy the LRAD Euros, they've tested it on us for years

if you want to know how to deal with it, earplugs, earmuffs for construction, and a shield

if you're really cheeky you can create a dish and reflect it back
for protection, in the US look for any plugs and earmuffs over NRR 30db of protection, that will cut 3 orders of magnitude off the energy reaching your ear, with earmuffs, and a solid object to use as a shield to bounce some of that energy away

a clear riot shield works great Image

my complaint about Mass Effect Andromeda is that it's gameplay does something that no one wants, "What if you could switch classes on the fly!"

no one wants that, no one plays the game like that, everyone just wants to do their class and get 1 or 2 powers from another class however the encouragement to do mobile gameplay with the jetpack dodge is good. its why i like Vanguard, in 2 and 3, once you get your health and shields up you dance around the level like a woman possessed

@Conzeit @Toshabuns @mcclure111 i had been feeding crows for a bit, & whilst walking to class a crow landed in front of me and started cawwing. As crows bring you bad news, I squatted down & started trying to guess what news it was bringing

“My parents are dead?”
“CAW CAW!”

“My siblings are dead?”
“CAW CAW!” @Conzeit @Toshabuns @mcclure111 And I went through a lot of things before saying:

“My gf is cheating on me?”
*SILENCE*

I practically fell over. The magnitude of it struck me. I could hardly think. The bird, for its part, seemed almost sympathetic, as if sad for its duty.
