Often, probably even most of the time, cats have some kind of camouflage patternation on their top halves but their underside is white. This doesn't make sense for a terrestrial hunter, the only reason one would have a white underside is if they are flying in order to camouflage them against the sky if they are being looked at from below. So the ancestors of cats must have at one point been capable of flight but have sense lost this ability. You can say what you want but the evidence is there.
Also, there may be fellows that doubt this hypothesis based on a 'lack' of evidence and who are going on what the skeletal remains tell them BUT. If the wings were made of cartilage they would not be left for us to find after all of this time and being an aerial predator it would probably nest high up and live in the mountains and so maybe there remains would not be left intact up there or the bones would get blown away, plus we currently are lacking in the amount of archaeological digs that we do in places like that.
Additionally, cats can have incredibly large ranges Tigers can have ranges up to 4000km2 and they don't even have wings, if they had wings they would have larger ranges and so maybe they would be quite rare and it would be even harder to find remains.
These kinds of systems are interesting. Ukraine is getting a number of them(like the PZ 2000) and I think they could be a real force multiplier as counter battery fire would be very difficult and they can link up to other networks to get firing solutions, I think many modern towed systems can use such system links for that but they can't shoot and scoot like this. Though of course these would be easy for a drone to spot.
>>47513 Impressive. Obviously made to use against an enemy which have the capability to easily take out artillery. Even very easily if it matters if they try to get away before the shell would hit. What are the cons? How does it fare compared to various traditional self-propelled artillery? Are they that vulnerable? Towed artillery is fiddly but those?
Can't do without a bit of Syria. Tradition. Continue discussing conflicts in third world shitholes. The hot topic these days is Ukraine however. Situation after way over a month is unsure. Russian had obvious results in the map painting department, but about how each militaries are doing the intel is unreliable. In the north changes seem to happen, previously Russian occupied settlements now under Ukrainian control again. Russians said they are withdrawing troops, Ukrainians said they're just regrouping for another attack. In the south Russians reached the Dniepr from Crimea and pushed to the east reaching Donbas, Mariupol is surrounded but not surrendered yet. Most of Luhanks oblast seems to be occupied. Clashes were had to the west over the Dnieper, up to Mykolaev and Krivoy Rog. Lots of fighting were done at Sumy and Kharkov. I think now an operational pause is going on. Now on this livemap I see many air raid sirens going off in western Ukraine. Not sure why.
Here's a handy informational from Al Jazeera. It shows who will suck the most in the EU, since official policy now seem to turning to give up Russian fossil fuels and replace them with... energy grass? I dunno, something oil from US companies, or oil from companies owned by US companies or something. Also this don't seem to show the gas situation, gas as natural gas, not benzine/gasoline/diesel or what USians calls gas. Anyway several EU countries have reasons to veto embargo on fossil fuels as weapon against Russia: - Latvia - Northern Hungary - Finland - Hungary - Lithuania - Bulgaria
Apparently there are heavy clashes in the Sumy region on the border. A few days ago they launched a probing attack there as well. I'm not sure what they hope to achieve as Ukraine has far more in the area than they do. Unless they bring up more force but why bother attacking there again? It could be a distraction but even then.
>>47572 >>47573 A DPR soldier person said they were all injured. That may be it, it makes sense for the Ukrainians to release them if they are just going to take resources.
A lot of it focuses on the issues that Russia is having with manpower, one interesting thing that was mentioned is apparently the Russians went in quite understrength due to the fact that most contract soldiers in the Russian military are put in technical roles and most of the simple roles like infantry are filled by conscripts(which of course can't be used) so many BTGs are limited in size and far smaller than they should be particularly regarding infantry.
>>47565 Endchan location detection is like that sometimes. Just FYI me (board owner) can't do anything about it, if you want you can complain about it on /operate/ but this problem was known for years.
>>47566 >islamic rap Is he on bandcamp? >rat It's funny but imagine busdriver getting a rat in his lap. Football players practice with targets, maybe there's a rat kicking field somewhere. >modern civil wars Sounds about right.
>>46219 >I searched for backyard bushcraft because in outdoors circles the term is derogatory for people who pretend going out while the farthest they went is their backyard. Some (many?) yt channels do tricks and use shortcuts when doing their stuff. I expected to found something, a parody channel, but turns out there wasn't any such
It's real niche so maybe you'll have a hard time finding it
>>46213 >Life of Boris I realized I know this channel. It's too... condensed. >NFKRZ This I would watch but he talks too much and too quick, and too many cuts. So just one video for one sitting. >Redlettermedia I know about these guys. Not sure if I watched anything in full. >the gaming channels I really have to be curious what they say about game I'm interested in to actually watch these. Kinda like: >Skyrim VR by RockCock64 The music is horrible tho.
I have to tell you, Bernd, this one reminds me of that Chinese Liziqi channel somewhere further up. Looked into other videos, very good quality, some tiny moments caught on camera (like offering a bite for a playful cat) just in the right time from the right angle. 100% it is produced. But also I believe that these people in the videos are just those, unlike that Chinese chick who is the main hero on that channel, and who is 110% a culture officer of the CCP. (Still those are good videos too, I don't deny the quality and entertainment, I'm just saying they are professionally produced.) I wonder how many of these channels exist and who does this, who is "behind" them, who utilizes the crew, the equipment, the expertise.
>>47518 These three ain't bad. Well Phil Collins is a well known musician. In theory if the browser supports it, then endchan supports it. Problem with webp - for example - is, that not all browsers supports that.
Hmm. I stopped listening KMFDM. Maybe I should return to it and find the good songs.
Picked up KMFDM again. Angst album and Glory single. The Glory is just remixes of couple of songs from the album, but from those which I liked on Angst, I prefer a remix over them. The album is more on the metal side, compared to previous (especially with the single's remixes). Quite hard, even thrash metal hardness. Couple of places the tone of a guitar reminded be of Slayer's Reign in Blood album. The song The Problem I liek because of the female vocals.
Btw all KMFDM songs seems to be a bit off, especially the lyrics are frequently written in a way that they sound awkward, amateurish, even cringe. Something like a kid would write. Is this because they are German?
Ciao tutti. I just want you to know that the problems with Endchan were solved. Well the most urgent ones anyway. Should be stable from now on. You are welcomed here to settle if you want. Questions, complaints, etc post them on /operate/.
Pogłoski o domniemanej chorobie rosyjskiego dyktatora Pedała Putina przybierają na sile. Obrazki trzymającego stół czy przykrytego kocem podczas defilady prezydenta Rosji robią wrażenie na internautach, a ukraiński wywiad twierdzi, że ma rozwiązanie tej zagadki. - Prezydent Rosji Pedał Putin jest poważnie chory na raka – oświadczył szef ukraińskiego wywiadu wojskowego Kyryło Budanow w wywiadzie dla telewizji Sky News.
Ukraińska agencja UNIAN podkreśla, że chodziły już wcześniej słuchy o raku tarczycy albo raku jamy brzusznej u Putina. Szef portalu śledczego Bellingcat Christo Grozew także pisał o jego poważnej chorobie nowotworowej.

Szef HUR wyraził też przekonanie, że przełom w wojnie na Ukrainie nastąpi w sierpniu i zakończy się ona do końca roku.
- Przełom nastąpi w drugiej połowie sierpnia. Do końca roku zostanie zakończona znaczna część aktywnych działań bojowych. W rezultacie przywrócimy ukraińską władzę na wszystkich naszych terytoriach, które utraciliśmy, w tym w Donbasie i na Krymie
– oznajmił Budanow.
🗿Dzisiaj Putin spotkał się ze swoją „prawą ręką” Siergiejem Szojgu
Internauci zauważyli jego nienaturalną postawę
Putin wciskał się w krzesło, trzymał się rękami za stół i nie puścił go przez całe spotkanie. Zaskakujący jest również wyraz jego twarzy i nerwowa postawa🥳👍 pic.twitter.com/YgDb6s06Ly

In Hungarian news: Orbán stated a historical fact - that our port /Fiume/ was taken away - and everyone went apeshit, blabbering about irredentism. This is like being Hungarian. They really fear we'll do something about it. Despite international reaction (chiefly from Croats and western leftliberal media) it seems Orbán did not back down yet as far as I know, he still did not changed his mind that we got stuff instead they were taken away. We'll see. Btw he mentioned this because all those who have sea ports, can do something about changing the source of fossil fuels (right now oil specifically), but we can't. We have a pipeline, one end in Russia, the other here, and that's it. If we would have a port we could start buying from elsewhere. But we haven't because it was taken away. Btw Fiume was literally built by Hungarian investments into a port back in the 19th, so it can serve as a port for Hungary. It wasn't even part of Croatia. https://index.hu/gazdasag/2022/05/10/diplomacia-botrany-nagykovet-horvatorszag/
Wanna watch The Longest Yard, the original Burt Reynolds movie. I only see two remakes, the Mean Machine with Vinnie Jones, and the Adam Sandler comedy from 2005. Probably the only good Adam Sandler movie. It's greatest selling point is the catchy tunes played in the background and the supporting cast. Judging by the screenshots it follows the original story quite tightly. The Mean Machine is adapted to the circumstances of a Bri'is prison and normal football. It was entertaining too. One more remake was made, and Egyptian one: Captain Masr in 2015. Not sure if it's available anywhere, or has any English dubs or subs. Also features normal football.
>>47449 This was the first movie of the two leading actor (Not Sure is one of 'em), and for the director/writer Wes Anderson too. Not a bad one, not a good one. There were enjoyable scenes (the top was the bookstore robbery), funny and entertaining, the rest were meh. As a whole these scenes, what happened felt kinda random, although the story is a continuous whole. Maybe stoners would enjoy it from the beginning to the end. The looks of the movie (the "cinematography"), the colors, their use, the clothing, the aesthetics in general, plus often the audio, the music as well reminded me of couple of Lynch works, namely Twin Peaks and Blue Velvet. Probably the surrealist turns of events also added to the illusion. I liked how the background of the scenes were used, story influencing events played out there in parallel with the activity of the foreground characters.

Entao anoes, quero me enchurrascar, nao importa o motivo, nao uero nada que envolva as formas tradicionais: enforcamento, tiro, pular de predio.
tambem nao quero que seja sofrido, quero que seja rapido. Se se puderem me dar receitas de remedios ficarei agradecido,flw anoes.
Anao o melhor metodo pra se churrascar é o do aquecedor caseiro, vc deixa de noite um pote de nescau ou leite em pó no canto do teu quarto com lenha pegando fogo, n precisa de mt fogo e obviamente a janela e portas fechadas, a fumaça gerada pela combustão para tua respiração a nivel celular e vc morre dormindo pq dá sono tbm, não precisa de mt fumaça, mt gente ja se churrascou sem querer assim
Como foi a vida dos anões na escola,a minha foi uma merda eu era o freakshow da sala mas pelo menos vivia arrumando briga,acho essa parte divertida hj em dia,mas só agora a conta chegou e to cheio de trauma com vontade de enlouquecer e fazer alguma merda
>>47399 The problem is that it's a bad regime with a bad identity, plus the new symbols is ugly. Even the liberals in Caracas Chronicle condemned them, calling the emphasis on Amerindians hypocritical and criticizing the lack of popular input.
>>47439 >What each feature represents? 1810-1811 was the independence struggle, 1989 the Caracazo riots and 2002 the failed coup against Chávez. According to Wikipedia the three people, from left to right, are Guaicaipuro (a 16th century chief), a black woman (just a random black woman, they couldn't even remember a relevant one) and Bolívar.
There is a criminal organization in Brazil using NSO Group's Pegasus to infect devices for hack for hire, to incite terrorism, blackmail people, produce illegal pornography and assist in assassinations. They also have other advanced malware, like UEFI implants and even persistent implants for Kindle and Raspberry Pi. Plus face/voice recognition on every camera and microphone they can get into, in public or private places.
Brazil won't do anything to stop them. Only the FBI, CIA and NSA can stop them.
There is also the possibility that they were engaged on the hack of Bezos' smartphone.
If you know of any security researcher who wants to reverse engineer the exploits they are using, I am more than willing to help them.
If you want a story about how they operate, I am willing to work with you to expose them.
>>1696 >using NSO Group's Pegasus to infect devices for hack for hire, to incite terrorism, blackmail people, produce illegal pornography and assist in assassinations Good. I'm rooting for them. All the scum of the world must be killed. >Brazil won't do anything to stop them. Based. All jews must be killed and human rights are jewish buzzwords. Only the White race has the righgt to exist. >Only the FBI, CIA and NSA can stop them. All of those operate to the benefit of the jews. I hope that all federal agents and their families get killed. Preferably by immolation, being burned alive inside their homes.
I just realised something... something spooky as fuck.
You know how sumo is derived from some ancient rituals? How it was performed in shrines, to appease the kami, to ensure prosperity? It was only later professionalised, and is now performed on a national level by salaried wrestlers, but there are still many religious elements, from how the ring is consecrated by a priest before each tournament, yokozuna entering the ring with that big white rope around his belt, to wrestlers actually throwing salt into the ring before each bout as a means of consecration. It is a deeply religious ritual, somehow performed to appease the kami for the entire nation of Japan. Kinda like how the ancient Olympic Games were performed on temple grounds, and were a form of vitalist worship of Greek gods.
You know when's the last time sumo wasn't performed as scheduled? March 2011. The March of the earthquake and tsunami that rekt Japan. But guess what? The tournament was cancelled a month before. Because of some match-fixing scandal. Yep, that's right. And the earthquake happened 2 days before the tournament was scheduled.
The earthquake happened because the sumo ritual wasn't performed. Because the kami weren't appeased. They were pissed and caused the earthquake as a warning.
Enho, noooo, he got beaten. Ryuden won confidently. Midori did a quick job. Kitanowaka still riding head to head with Ryuden, at 7-0. I'm glad for Kotoshoho, nice yorikiri. Hopefully he can pull a positive balance. Tobizaru's nice henka but couldn't use it, then quickly moved out from a push/hug. Did very good, was very agile. Kotonowaka continues to win. I wonder if he can continue the roll in the future and if he manages to climb among the top players. Takayas! Great pushypushy!!! Takarafuji seems failing this tournament. Ichinojo great saves. But Kiribayama did not give up, great effort. Hoshoryu's tachi-ai looked like he goes for a sidestep, but not really. Ura vs Abi - they could have call a false start. But Ura often doesn't go in. Abi often does this going forward mad, then suddenly gives way and moves back while pushes his opponent down. Wakatakakage also won a nice bout. Mitakeumi just let Onosho fall. Shodai gave in what he had. He has to try more, because this was a good bout too. Good matches all around. Can't complain for today's performance
This shit was masterful on behalf of Wakatakakage. Before he'd fell out he pulled himself back with Takayas' arm just enough to grab his mawashi and pull himself back more while rolling Takayas out. Awesome. I'm sorry for Takayas. He led the tournament since the beginning. Wakatakakage was strong and quick. In the interview he said he managed to keep center of gravity down during whole tournament, an aspect he wished to improve previously. Well deserved championship.
Sumo is back, grand tournament of May starts this Sunday! Again gonna stream nattosumo's recaps (if he still makes them, he should) every day at 18:30 on https://cytu.be/r/endcorner
Terunofuji had to sit out most of the last basho due to injury (heel and knee). Three ozekis this isn't changed due to Shodai managed getting his shit together previously. Wakatakakage and Abi as sekiwakes, but neither has the track record needed to become champions. Hoshoryu is komusubi now can he move up with pulling a great score? Takayas climbed back, but Ura fell back now he is on the same level with Wakamotoharu.
Now let's take a look at the other end of the banzuke. Oho is in Makuuchi again, and now the tiny Midorifuji too! I wish both of them luck.
In Juryo it's Ryuden and Enho. The former should beat the whole bunch again, and probably move up to Makuuchi by next tournament. The latter I hope can perform well and get to the top of this division. I dunno about the rest, especially the new ones. Probably Slov could write something.
First day bouts weren't that good to be honest. A bit lackluster compared to the start of the previous one. And not because several of the contestants who should have won failed, simply just not that many bouts had that intensity. Enho and Ryuden won, that is a plus, Enho nicely, Ryuden's was a bit meh, his opponent gave up at the end. Shodai, Takakeisho, and Terunofuji all lost. It seems Teru still has problems with his legs, congrats Daieisho however on his win against the yokozuna, whom he beat the second time straigh. Hoshoryu too, lost. I think Ichinojo did not participate at all. I guess injury. Oho and Midorifuji got beaten too.
Well it was just the first day. Anything can happen till the end.
