For the last few years there's been quite a lot of propagandanime: series that are set on a premise clearly meant to teach the viewer something valuable about the mundaneity of life. This does not count for shows like NHK Ni Youkoso! that simply tell a story with a redemption arc of NEET or something, that's just a straightforward plot, but when regardless of a plot the premise to set a background for the plot serves as a reminder of the viewpoints of a marginal lifestyle. Examples are Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai that are meant to exemplify the marital bliss to an otaku audience so that people would start fucking again, or Kobayashi-san Chi No Maid Dragon that exemplifies that an allegory for autism is not necessarily entirely unfit to normal society as long as they can be guarantined to a special role.
I don't think art's value is determined by its use as propaganda, and I don't like this modern perception I see floating around that a show is good or bad depending on how well it pushes messages or themes. In that sense I agree with you OP and will gladly fall for your memes.
>>18967 Thank you for falling for my meme. I don't see it as a bad thing at all, only interesting, and in fact I kinda like it. The shows it produces are by nature pandering and therefore very comfy.
Another meme I've made is garbagime, but because this far I've only made it with Akiba's Strip and Choujigen Game Neptune The Animation, it's hardly deep enough to more than stumble upon a little bit, at best maybe fall knee deep into. It's a meme about having a very specific kind of throwaway humor.
Note: The study was conducted in 1996, so it may be a little out of day.
Hmm, consider this: Julio has been shown to hate homosexuals with a passion, at least in public. Always calling out "degeneracy" where ever he sees it, including going after QuQu for supposedly being a faggot. Though for all we know QuQu is just living out a fantasy online and is as straight as them come.
According to a study done by the American psychological association  recruited 64 heterosexual Caucasian males ranging from 18 to 31. Everyone of them reported that they had a history of only being aroused in heterosexual situations - though, as you'll soon see, some of them may have been lying.
After answering a few questions about their comfort level around homosexuals, the 64 men were split into two groups - one homophobic group, and one non-homophobic group based on their scores.
They had each group watch three four minute videos - one of heterosexual sex, one of lesbian sex, and one of gay sex. The men had devices attached to their penises measuring the amount of sexual arousal.
The results of the experiment showed that both homophobic and non-homophobic men displayed an increase in penis circumference when they watched straight and lesbian porn. However, the homophobic men had heightened penis arousal while watching the gay porn video while the heterosexual men didn't react at all.
As I'm sure it comes to no shock to anyone who's been paying attention, the homophobic men denied getting sexually aroused by the gay porn while the heterosexuals, it can reasonably be assumed, simply said that it didn't do anything to them.
>>16505 Uh, no. What I was trying to say is that people who are homophobic, who keep saying they are evil degenerates against god wind up being gay themselves but are filled with so much self-hatred that they can't accept who they are.
Take Ted Haggard for example: A pastor who spoke out against homosexuals while having sex with a male prostitute over the course of three years. Haggard also bought meth from the male prostitute. Ted also apparently masterbated in front of Grant Haas, a man who formally attended New Life Church, in a hotel room. Ted also sent him explicit text messages.
Ted entered three weeks of intensive counseling, overseen by four ministers once the scandal became publicized. Apparently the therapy worked. Ted came back heterosexual - or so he claimed anyway. Such a part of who you are cannot simply be cured in three weeks. It would take rewiring their brain in order to "fix" homosexuals. And even then, there might be no guarantee it actually works.
Here are a few links about Ted Haggard. I'm sure if I search I could find other examples of homophobic individuals be exposed for having a homosexual side. And please do read everything I wrote, not just two words.
>>16500 >>16507 >>16500 >QuQu is just living out a fantasy online and is as straight as them come. >Having a gay fantasy >being straight one of these things, is not like the other, one of these things just doesn't belong.
>>16500 >I mean, for fuck sake, Variloh must always announce his fucking manhood when he talks to someone he hates. "I have a girlfriend, I'm a gamedev. Sargon is a con." Isn't that the sign of a fragile ego? Isn't that what a pathetic, disgusting, piece of shit who felt insecure, inadequate, and lower than dirt do? Claim to be better than others? Have a deep seeded hatred of faggots and trannies?
You are, in fact claiming that "those that hate fags are fags themselves" which is the oldest liberal trick in the book. Seems your a self justifying homosexual.
>>16500 >According to a study done by the American psychological association
Biggest liberal organization in America, discarded for pushing fags as normal.
>>4075 it's just a respectful way to quit. it gives the employer time to figure out what they're going to do. you should only abruptly quit if your employer is a giant asshole. my employer is a bit of a stingy jew but he was pretty mellow and helped me and my cousin out in other ways. I at least owe it to him to let him find a couple replacements before we split
>>4104 I live with my parents. I have no bills other than cheap rent so I saved up enough to pay them for months. I wouldnt have even been working that shit job to begin with if I didnt. it doesnt pay enough to survive
Hey guys, in case any of you aren't aware, there's a guy named Terry Davis who created an OS called TempleOS, basically he claims that it is the third temple and that God himself bestowed upon Terry divine intellect to help him design it. CIA niggers fuck with this dude all the time and recently even got his primary channel removed. He's redpilled as fuck and is constantly BTFO'ing CIA niggers left and right. A good time is to be had by all in the chat and everything he talks about and everything the chat talks about aligns pretty well with commonly held /pol/ beliefs. If you are afraid this is just a datamining thread to get your YouTube accounts then use a throwaway.
Really, the primary reason I made this thread is because I feel as many people as possible should know about Terry so that they can share in his glory and so that his message can be spread far and wide. He has proven God countless times in his streams through the use of certified random numbers (all of which that are platinum kilogram certified random numbers) and all in all he is probably the single most based man on planet earth. Be sure to check him out, his LiveStreams are a total hoot.
PS, back in 1999 he ran over a CIA nigger with his car and killed him and he also has a space alien trading post that he runs out of his bedroom.
See you guys in the chat! And please, partake in as much shitposting and memeing as possible.

>>35428 Considering that possibility would make me an infotard, much simpler to think he's just a smart guy that went awry like Teddy. Not everything is a CIA psyop, sometimes people just lose it, sometimes that losing it is prompted by sketchy mind-control experiments(like Ted, who signed up for an essay contest and was berated by some psychologist as part of a pavolv-tier operant conditioning experiment)
>>35471 I suppose it's just a coincidence then that Ted ended up doing what he did after taking part in those MK Ultra experiments(LOL). Proof that a "terrorist" subject underwent MK Ultra experiments and yet people will still say he just happened to lose his mind.
I was talking about that subject in a thread on 8chan like a year or two ago and right after those posts the section about Ted on the MKUltra page got wiped. It's still in the Wayback Machine though.
Republikike Congress Moves to Overturn Obama-Era Online Privacy Rules h ttps://w ww.nytimes.com/2017/03/28/technology/congress-votes-to-overturn-obama-era-online-privacy-rules.html
By CECILIA KANG MARCH 28, 2017
WASHINGTON — Congress completed its overturning of the nation’s strongest internet privacy protections for individuals on Tuesday in a victory for telecommunications companies, which can track and sell a customer’s online information with greater ease.
In a 215-to-205 vote largely along party lines, House Republicans moved to dismantle rules created by the Federal Communications Commission in October. Those rules, which had been slated to go into effect later this year, had required broadband providers to receive permission before collecting data on a user’s online activities.
The action, which follows a similar vote in the Senate last week, will next be brought to President Trump, who is expected to sign the bill into law. A swift repeal may be a prelude to further deregulation of the telecommunications industry.
Republicans said President Barack Obama’s appointee to the F.C.C., Tom Wheeler, had created a slew of overbearing rules for broadband providers that would put them at a disadvantage relative to internet companies like Google and Netflix. Those internet companies are not regulated by the F.C.C. but are increasingly in competition with telecom companies for online streaming customers.
Lawmakers and Republican regulators at the F.C.C. have said they plan to target the 2015 classification of broadband as a utilitylike service that is strapped with strong regulatory oversight. They are also set to seek the overturning of Obama-era net neutrality rules that forbade broadband providers from blocking, slowing down or charging extra for downloads of websites and apps.
“What we’ve created is confusion, and this is the way to rein in an agency that was overreaching,” said Marsha Blackburn, Republican of Tennessee, who introduced the House bill to overturn the privacy rules. She used the Congressional Review Act in a procedure that lets lawmakers scrap regulations recently created by government agencies.
How the Republikikes Sold Your Privacy to Internet Providers h ttps://w ww.nytimes.com/2017/03/29/opinion/how-the-republicans-sold-your-privacy-to-internet-providers.html?src=trending
By TOM WHEELER MARCH 29, 2017
On Tuesday afternoon, while most people were focused on the latest news from the House Intelligence Committee, the House quietly voted to undo rules that keep internet service providers — the companies like Comcast, Verizon and Charter that you pay for online access — from selling your personal information.
The Senate already approved the bill, on a party-line vote, last week, which means that in the coming days President Trump will be able to sign legislation that will strike a significant blow against online privacy protection.
The bill not only gives cable companies and wireless providers free rein to do what they like with your browsing history, shopping habits, your location and other information gleaned from your online activity, but it would also prevent the Federal Communications Commission from ever again establishing similar consumer privacy protections.
The bill is an effort by the F.C.C.’s new Republican majority and congressional Republicans to overturn a simple but vitally important concept — namely that the information that goes over a network belongs to you as the consumer, not to the network hired to carry it. It’s an old idea: For decades, in both Republican and Democratic administrations, federal rules have protected the privacy of the information in a telephone call. In 2016, the F.C.C., which I led as chairman under President Barack Obama, extended those same protections to the internet.
To my Democratic colleagues and me, the digital tracks that a consumer leaves when using a network are the property of that consumer. They contain private information about personal preferences, health problems and financial matters. Our Republican colleagues on the commission argued the data should be available for the network to sell. The commission vote was 3-2 in favor of consumers.
Reversing those protections is a dream for cable and telephone companies, which want to capitalize on the value of such personal information. I understand that network executives want to produce the highest return for shareholders by selling consumers’ information. The problem is they are selling something that doesn’t belong to them.
Here’s one perverse result of this action. When you make a voice call on your smartphone, the information is protected: Your phone company can’t sell the fact that you are calling car dealerships to others who want to sell you a car. But if the same device and the same network are used to contact car dealers through the internet, that information — the same information, in fact — can be captured and sold by the network. To add insult to injury, you pay the network a monthly fee for the privilege of having your information sold to the highest bidder.
This bill isn’t the only gift to the industry. The Trump F.C.C. recently voted to stay requirements that internet service providers must take “reasonable measures” to protect confidential information they hold on their customers, such as Social Security numbers and credit card information. This is not a hypothetical risk — in 2015 AT&T was fined $25 million for shoddy practices that allowed employees to steal and sell the private information of 280,000 customers.
Among the many calamities engendered by the circus atmosphere of this White House is the diversion of public attention away from many other activities undertaken by the Republican-controlled government. Nobody seemed to notice when the Trump F.C.C. dropped the requirement about networks protecting information because we were all riveted by the Russian hacking of the election and the attempted repeal of Obamacare.
There’s a lot of hypocrisy at play here: The man who has raged endlessly at the alleged surveillance of the communications of his aides (and potentially himself) will most likely soon gladly sign a bill that allows unrestrained sale of the personal information of any American using the internet.
Apparently, the Trump administration and its allies in Congress value privacy for themselves over the privacy of the Americans who put them in office. What is good business for powerful cable and phone companies is just tough luck for the rest of us.

The overturning of new privacy rules probably won’t make much difference because internet service providers have always been permitted to monitor network traffic, see what websites users visit and share some of that information with advertisers. Credit Todd Heisler/The New York Times
SAN FRANCISCO — Congress on Tuesday moved to dismantle online privacy rules created during the Obama era. The rules, which were scheduled to take effect this year, would have required internet providers to get permission before collecting and selling a customer’s online information, including browsing activities.
What does this mean for your privacy and what can you do? Here’s what to know.
What online privacy rules did Congress overturn?
Congress voted to overturn rules created by the Federal Communications Commission in October that required broadband providers to get your permission before collecting private data on your online activities and offering it for sale to advertisers.
Ms. Sandvik recommended Freedome by F-Secure and said TunnelBear was another popular option.
The Wirecutter, the product recommendations site owned by The New York Times, highlighted a service called Private Internet Access.
What else can help?
People who are concerned about their privacy might also consider using Tor, a type of software that helps internet users mask their online identities and whereabouts, Ms. Sandvik said.
Tor essentially encrypts your browsing activity and bounces a website request to multiple servers, decrypting layers of information about the request with every server “hop,” which makes it difficult to see from where and whom the original request came.
What are the downsides of VPN and Tor?
Some services might break: for example, Netflix blocks VPN users from accessing its content. And Tor often makes web browsing sluggish.
Do you like hiking and/or camping, Bernd? I pretty much love hiking, alone or with friends doesn't matter, both gives entirely different experience. I try to spend as much time as I can spare in the woods, wich isn't really that much sadly. I would really recommend it all those Bernds who spends most of their time sitting in front of the screen F5-ing constantly. For a few hours walk you only need a small bottle of water and a Snickers. I don't even remember when was the last time when I was out camping and not just in an FPS.
>>4039 That's sad. Have you considered playing a game of vodka and balalaika?
>>4099 Have you considered self improvement? Now that you are more conscious about your giant cuntness maybe you can get a friend or make peace with the old one (by telling him sorry or something like that, just don't be yourself, your old self at least).
>>4120 That doesn't really prove anything. My browsing experience prepared me for the disappointing truth: that thing still can has a penis.
During the past several years, we have witnessed a huge, coordinated attack by (((powers that be))) on chans and other previously obscure online communities.
The mass media brainwashing, relativization of everything and rabid anti-intellectualism have taken over what seemed to be one of last bastions of intelligent thought and free speech on the internet.
Left wing and right wing communities have undergone the same neutralization process. Left wing became SJW's, Right wing became alt-kikes. There is a clear neutralization pattern for any kind of non-conformist movement that emerges and starts gaining fraction. What we have witnessed happen with 4chan/GG, also happened with /pol/. And it seems to be the overall blueprint for controlling dissent on the internet
>Hyperreality is seen as a condition in which what is real and what is fiction are seamlessly blended together so that there is no clear distinction between where one ends and the other begins. It allows the co-mingling of physical reality with virtual reality (VR) and human intelligence with artificial intelligence (AI). Individuals may find themselves, for different reasons, more in tune or involved with the hyperreal world and less with the physical real world.
So there you have it, AI, "meme magic" , echo chambers and everything else in one package
>In his analysis of the spectacular society, Debord notes that quality of life is impoverished, with such lack of authenticity, human perceptions are affected, and there's also a degradation of knowledge, with the hindering of critical thought. Debord analyzes the use of knowledge to assuage reality: the spectacle obfuscates the past, imploding it with the future into an undifferentiated mass, a type of never-ending present; in this way the spectacle prevents individuals from realizing that the society of spectacle is only a moment in history, one that can be overturned through revolution
And here we have constant shilling with irrelevant garbage, fake news and reality TV politicians.
Constant influx of millennials which got raised on this is not helping either. Basically, the fight between "leftists" and "rightists" that is a centrally spun narrative today is a fight between 1984 and Brave New World.
>>35454 You do not have to be gay that is his gimmick though. Comedian Theo Von said offhandedly "You have got to just gun down the rich that has always been my motto.". His personality allows for that. It also allowed him to talk about seeing child porn as a child and not knowing what it was. Something Milo could not approach pedophilia.
That is just an example of confidence Milo is a cryptokike son of a pedocriminal club owner. Milo may have been responsible for the pulse nightclub shooting as he was in the city as it happened and even spoke at the place after the fact.
>>35454 >And after the CIA leaks we know the CIA contracts MI6, and vice versa, because the CIA isn't allowed to operate on US soil. Is it any coincidence the same fucking psyops are happening across the totality of the Five Eyes' clay?
Yes. But also don't forget that the NSA contracts out to GCHQ to do its dirty work surveilling U.S. citizens inside the United States. This fact was revealed by Snowden's document leaks.
Whenever I am about to fuck, I like to pause and give thanks to the gods of sex-Hitchens the martyred saint, Thunderf00t the sodomizer, Steve Shives the cuck for giving us a variety of fedora fucks. Bless you all!
My favorite metaphor for contemporary religion describes a teacher that is absent the full year of school, but leaves behind several books for the students to read.
At the end of the year the teacher makes a surprise visit to grade the students on the material. Those that chose the correct book have a better chance of passing, and therefore graduating. Those that studied the wrong book and fail are burned eternally by fire.

I think they're all 600x200. >Assuming endchan has a noble goal, then it is counterproductive to that goal, whatever the goal is. >imageboards have to have goals This is how I can tell you've let the narrative-driven faggotry on cuckchan and now b8chan infect your mind. The "goal" is to have a place for like-minded individuals to hang out and shoot the shit, some irreverent humor isn't going to hinder that unless you let it.
>>35447 >Didn't National Socialist Germany have a very good structure? Perhaps internally it had a good policy, but foreign policy was too militaristic (from which you can tell that it was meant to clash and "synthesize" with Marxist Russia; the synthesis being the League of Nations 2.0).
I'm more of an "Industrial Society and its Future" kind of guy so I don't really care about anything apart from making sure I don't get unknowingly or forcefully genetically engineered with something like this >>35256 or forcefully merged with a Big Data AI into the Borg that is global sheeple or something. But to each his own I guess.
>>35450 I wouldn't call it the most "rational", but the more decentralized and localized the more natural it is for Man. We've lived the great majority of our existence as a species in small bands, clans, families and tribes, before the jews' ancestors came up with this abomination that is about to render us extinct through gen-eng and cybernetics, all in the name of immanentizing the eschaton, of a self-fulfilling constantly prophesied progress.
We're about to die and there's no time for any other division apart from the sentient (feeling) and sapient (wise) and humane individual in his close, familial groups, against the centralizing techno-globalist gnostic-masonic jewish elites. Or else we'll bicker until we finally soon unwittingly extinguish ourselves and any semblance of natural human beauty, or any beauty that could have existed.
>>35462 It's too much of an easy step now because we're already so conditioned to the internet, that "hooking up" to a Big Data AI would probably be seamless to the average mind.

Finished NFS Underground 2. For the nth time. The ending is very anti-cathartic: after a disappointing and glitchy race against the main adversary (sometimes his car jumps into nowhere) the player gets a shitty yoohoo cutscene and a your winner message.
Started to fiddle around with a new game: Battle Brothers. With some early access version as only today was released the final, full version. Couldn't find a torrent of that yet but it's still very fresh so no biggie. The inspiration for the developer came from games like: " The original X-Com, Warhammer: Shadow of the Horned Rat, Mount & Blade and Jagged Alliance". You command a mercenary company, waltz around on a strat map, fight battles on tactical maps, hire warriors and do quests. Enjoyable but seems boring on the long run. I hope they will make it moddable eventually because I think it lacks some features (would be nice a main char, a notary and other stuff). We'll see what the future holds for this game.
can u plz be a bit more transparent with the server hosting?
>SnakeDude pays the bills is nice but it does not give us much assurance endchan would stay alive the next day. since he is the sugar daddy of endchan he could just disappear next month and endchan is gone.
on elysium, they give a financial report where they say how much longer their world of warcraft servers are able to stay up based on donations:
u dont have to give the exact cost like they do because of bargaining reasons, but it would b nice if u could give an expiration estimate like "EndChan hosting set to expire on March 11 based on current funds."
I'll work on updating it. I haven't been because we have plenty of funding in the coffers and I committed to keep the server online until March with those funds. I haven't even really checked on the donations in a while.
>is nice but it does not give us much assurance endchan would stay alive the next day. since he is the sugar daddy of endchan he could just disappear next month and endchan is gone.
He is gone. That's why we set up the donations page. I also have back up resources that can be used. And you may have not be aware of the funding successfully until March part.
> it would b nice if u could give an expiration estimate like "EndChan hosting set to expire on March 11 based on current funds." You're right that should be put on the donations page. I'd really like to make the page dynamic in the future. So much on the todo list. We'll get there.
>Czaks He is the administrator/creator of vichan. On top of that, he is a well known serpent, thief, manipulator, and all around a shit person, much, much worse than Jim, Littlecar and Josh all combined.
In case you don't know, vichan is a polish imageboard with the levels of cancer exceeding reddit, 4ch and tumblr and whatever you can think of. It's basically facebook with "anonymity" at present point. For one, Czaks is advertising a chan/imageboard derivative called Uczuciopedia on his website, which is a facebook page running on stolen polish chan culture original content and memes and run by highschool normalfag chads. He was invited to a party organised by Lanceq, the creator of Uczuciopedia, on which he (czaks) was insulted and made fun of (he wanted to feel like a highschooler chad one more time </3, rip in peace)
Czaks has a history of undermining privacy of the users of his chan, he has also declared vichan "the polish 4chan", he has fucked up karachan a few times (another polish chan, this one is less cancerous and more of a mix of modern day 8ch and old 4ch /b/) and generally assisted in spreading polish chan OC on mainstream sites like facebook, for cancerous normalfag youth to use and appropriate.
Pic rel is czaks, as you can notice, he is a ginger and has no soul.
I don't think I'll be able to find you anything in english. And not much in polish, unless I find an archived imageboard page, because the good anons don't blog about chans and don't talk about chans outside of chans (Karachan, for example, tries to keep outsiders out so bad that you need special cookies and adblock lines to get in and browse properly). One fact I recall was that he blew all the server money on drugs, (I think it was cocaine?) the money included ad revenue and donations.
>Man that destroyed polish chan community. After reviving Vichan in 2012 (before it existed in 2009-2010, but he got doxxed and had lots of pay-on-delivery shit to him so he closed the shop, it also came out he was underage then), he invited all kinds of normal and moralfags to polish chans, causing a major downgrade in quality. He became friends with Jakub "lanceq" Nies?uchowski, founder of Uczuciopedia, facebook group that's the main enemy of polish chans right now, they are whiteknighting all raids and actions, stealing all content that can be stolen (because of them most of our memes are now in all polish middle schools which is fucking annoying) and just being shit. Result of his actions? Since middle 2014 nothing interesting was made or happened on polish chans, every raid or action was whiteknighted or moralfagged into oblivion before it even began and no one is even making OC anymore because he knows it will be on kwejk (polish 9gag) next day. Before, polish chans were places for social outcasts and losers to spend time and do shit with people like them, but currently they are SWARMED by underages and no fun allowed moralfags which are turning the community into what 4chan became after sociology.
In the genre of RTS, not one of the 4x RTS out there have ever made economy, outside of militarization, important. Not Empire Earth 2, not Rise of Nations, not Empires: Dawn of the Modern World which was an unofficial sequel to Empire Earth made by the same devs of Empire Earth, not even Sins of a Solar Empire. An honorable mention will be given to Empire Earth 2 as coming the closest at doing so however.
Since EE2's territory system forced to players to not just constantly expand, but build infrastructure to acquire land. Because if they just centralized in one territory they'd soon run out of materials to build stuff out of. Since some materials actually become obsolete as you progress enough in the tech trees plus Epochs. This meant that even players who decided to be a lone wolf "empire" were still forced to either engage in suicidal warfare or trade with enemies or neutral parties.
However, at the end of the day all of this is negated by the fact that you don't need to feed and maintain your standing armies. Citizens are just golem like drones who work until they're killed. Trade relations consists of you not pissing off players/AI until you find the perfect moment to backstab them since you no longer need their resources. This essentially reduces the economic component to nothing more but resource hogging with very minimal management of said resources.

>>10261 Ayyy lmao, yes such a thing can be argued since bullshit like the TPP is making the world economies so homogenous that they even want to fuse into currencies that identify with their hemisphere of the world. However such a thing wasn't as common in the ancient world due to city states, vassals, and the like. Hell the unification of the fractured Prussian states and identities in the late 19th century was so great it became a game changer on how national identities and the like were treated.
Health care does not have to be that specific to be honest since I care more about the economic aspects than the socio economic aspects or logistics. The socio economic as well as logistical aspects are better left off for REAL 4x games and Grand Strategy games in general. However my wish is to further bridge over the divide we see between RTS, 4x, and Grand Strategy indeed.
