Is there any topic that you can't help but go full thought-police on? By this I mean that you immediately attempt to correct their incorrect beliefs on the topic as an almost knee-jerk reaction.

A person who imagines themselves adhering to the "truth" of facts and logic and thereby always having a belief in their own correctness, saying things like "But that's illogical" and "Stop being so emotional". In actuality this person is just a dummy and believes dumb things.

The nintendo gamecube has one of the worst controllers I've ever had the displeasure of using.
Say what you want about it being "perfectly optimized for these 3 specific gamecube games I like" but I find basically everything about them to be bad. The face buttons are awkwardly shaped and spread out for no good reason. My one thumb needs to hit all 4 buttons, why make one of them spaced farther out from two others for no reason other than to put one in the center as the "main" button?
The joystick feels too highly elevated compared to the rest of the controller and the c stick's shape and lack of texturing feels awkward to use for anything beyond flicking in nonspecific directions. The left stick is too far (and feels higher up, not sure if this is true relative to other controllers or just a false perception) from the D-pad, and the face buttons are too far from the C-stick due to that awkward dumb shaping. The movement of your thumbs from the natural position on the face buttons to the c-stick feels less responsive and natural than on virtually any other dual stick game controller. E
The triggers are probably the worst part. Analog triggers might be useful for some things, but I don't like having to push that massive chunk of plastic down so far to feel like I'm actually doing something in game. The dualshock does it right by requiring enough pressure on the analog triggers that even lightly depressing them gives better physical responsiveness of me pressing a button. The z-button just feels like I'm squishing a beetle or that there's something stuck underneath it. I don't know if that's an intentional design choice but every gamecube controller I've used is like that.

>eugenics? you mean like nazis???

No. See https://youtu.be/r2M8fl6MxUE?t=67
I don't see how anyone could watch as iq trends start reversing as a direct consequence of our dysgenic culture and not realize that maybe a system that deliberately selects for psychopaths, sociopaths, hoarders, and in general anyone without a prefrontal cortex or modicum of foresight might not be the best idea and might be the reason why """muh human nature""" necessitates tyranny (i.e. gubbamints).

>malthus wuz wrong XD

Ah yes, because a limited system can support unlimited growth. And yeah, don't start planning for the future silly, Israel's desalination plants will save us from running out of water, much like the Infinite™ Alaskan oil fields will always be there so we can dump plastics into the sea. Why do boomers and libs both hate my glorious mother Gaia and DELIBERATELY strive to kill billions upon billions of the as-yet-unborn because they need to be comfy?

>doesn't absinthe make you see shit, bro woah crazy

or

>it's not REAL absinthe bro

This one makes me sperg the most. After a series of droughts during the Belle Époque, the wine industry was losing money to the commercially successful absinthe. They used their old-money for a slander campaign in official news reports, which the artists of the day embraced because they were edgy. When it was made illegal, the Swiss (and that isn't a euphemism) who were making the stuff said "lol non get pheuqued famille" and continued using the same recipes right through the 21st century legalization.

IQ is a damn good measurement of something which is difficult to quantify. That being said, from what I understand, IQ and intelligence can only deteriorate throughout a lifetime, i.e. a mostly developed individual will have a higher iq at 19 than they would themselves at 35. Plus, since it really measures pattern recognition, deductive reasoning, and problem solving, one could argue that your IQ at 7 years old would equal or eclipse your own IQ at even 19. This deterioration does make the measurement very susceptible to other, environmental factors. I would even argue that IQ is 60/40 nature/nurture or vice-versa, head-to-head. In other words, you could send an iguana to Harvard--or even a reputable university instead of one of the same league that gave that monkey George Bush his degree--but he won't learn much. Inversely, if you take a super smart kid and put him in the burger educayshun system, he could very well grow up a brainlet.

That being said TBC is bad scholarship. Not only that, but it fits into the history of racists and humanist whigs shitting up eugenics and cultural (not racial) realists. Those of us who value the human race and desire to strive toward the species which will succeed us need to disassociate ourselves from if our ideas are to survive the immasculated shame-culture of modern, post-realpolitik (pseudo)political discourse, which is based upon the principle of "Meak-makes-right."

Explain? Not sure I understand how "Black Friday" is "cancerous." If you're taking an anti-consumerist stance to it then there are plenty of other hyper-consumerist problems to focus on; besides it's not as if it's even much of a problem as it is a symptom.

Parasitically grows and ever expands its influence as cancer does. The point of "cancerous" here is that Black Friday has been slowly expanding to be Black Week and now it's moving to Black Month. Sure it's just a symptom but it's an egregious one. These 2 months are nothing but consumerism and Black Friday is a tool to ensure that as many people are sucked in as possible thanks to the power of "Sick Deals on products (of reduced quality/longevity)!". As a bonus, since it's Black Season right now we get to rail against it in specific instead of just consumerism as a whole. We have all year to complain about consumerism, but when a specific symptom starts protruding into your life why not complain about it in specific? Black Friday's deaths and protrusion into a family-oriented holiday are some of the tools we have to hold the mirror for consumerists and remind them how it can hurt their lives.

The choice of "Name one thing more cancerous than X" is based off of a meme format of hyperbole in one's hatred. It's not actually meant as an impossible task, but does usually lead to people venting their feelings about that X or about other things they hate more.

What a trash opinion. Low time commitment, low pressure environ allowing the femotype to consider it just friendly if she has no interest and let's you not be stuck in it as long if it's not good. If the coffee date goes well, you can invite the interested party to continue hanging out and go do something else (pro tip: the contemporary art museum is free for students)

>> No.10219  

>>10218
the problem with coffee dates is that they're boring and don't last long enough. Also usually in the morning-noon, which isn't very conductive dating time.

I would place them below drinks, activity (arcade, bowling, etc), museum, and dinner in terms of effectiveness. The only great think about them is low cost.

>> No.10220  

in their defense, I think they’re good for first dates specifically because it’s a really chill environment. For later dates I think you’re right, but I prefer when first dates are more chill

>> No.10225  

>>10220
Basically this, first dates should give a chance to talk and hang out casually without a large commitment from either party. Especially if it's a first date with someone you don't know very well, why would you want to force an hour (meal) of time together when neither of you are sure this is worth continuing? Drinks can be more intimidating due to the existent rate of date-rape especially in relation to alcohol. Museum and activity really take the focus away from finding out if you're compatible. It may be intimidating for some shy people to just sit and chat with a cute someone, but you have to be able to talk to each other if you want it to go anywhere, right? While it may be boring (>>10219) after you are already in a relationship with the person, shouldn't spending time learning about someone you may care for be engaging enough?

>> No.10198  

I get patak's curry paste, you can find it in the international section of most grocery stores. Also, if you want to add some more spice, add some lemon and valentina hot sauce to the veggies when they're cooking. Also, adding butter to the veggies would help it taste better, but if you want to make it vegan use coconut oil.

I have been doing a lot of meal-prep because I chiefly don't have time during the week to cook decent meals. A lot of the time I make dinner for the week on Sunday afternoon and it lasts until Thurs. or so.
Breakfast is a lot more versatile because I'm up early so I can make a breakfast bowl (crumbled turkey bacon, scrambled eggs, wilted baby spinach, cheese or any combination of other things) or some oatmeal if I'm in a rush.
I used to experiment w/ Japanese foods but I just can't get the ingredients for as cheap as I'd like; fun once in a while though

Veg. quiche is fucking killer. You can nix the crust if that intimidates you (frittata?), but with a simple array of veggies (mushrooms, onion, spinach), you can get something fantastic pretty easy. Your oven needs to function, though.

I think i need to try and make quiche then. I struggle with eating eggs at times, but so far I've been able to enjoy quiche with few issues. I also really like foods that are in of themselves a complete meal that is healthy and tasty. Worrying about sides is my least favorite thing.

Bodyweight exercises are actually pretty good, you can get started with squats, pushups, dips, etc. and whenever you feel like doing a ton of them is too easy, then you can see if you feel more comf at the gym. If not, a few dumbbells of good sizes can go a long way. We're all gonna make it.

If you have a setup with a monitor & PS3 with P4AU w/ DLC characters, you’re welcome to bring it. It would be a good way to see who at the event is interested in it. There’s a good chance you’ll be able to at least play casual matches. Your venue fee will be waived.
