>>20423 >God probably would have sabotaged the sprinklers anyway. I'm not sure if He is finally getting annoyed with all the buttfucking of little boys by His priests When you say it rabbi shlomo shekelstein it must be true, they did write it in the papers too and never would lie to us!
"After comparing the environments in which the two species evolved and continue to live, they suggest it likely came down to competition for food. Both live in caves where food is scarce. Because of that, males appear to be more interested in finding food than in mating. This has led the females to assume the role of pursuer and initiator. And to prevent the male from escaping before his sperm has been collected, the female has evolved a hook that latches onto the male, keeping him in place for two or three days."
>>19645 Seems like a way to take advantage of people's anger for their money. Would this actually help people in some way or form? I'd say not really, it'd prolly just extend the time until they "explode" from their built up frustration and anger, but that would be pretty much it. It could turn into a cycle where people will go to "release" and lash out and afterwards wait until they feel like doing it all over again because they've never really solved their underlying problems. theoritically an endless cycle of spending money to make themselves feel better.
Not only do I see it as an endless waste of time, energy, and money, I also see it as a bad habit. it enables and encourages people to turn to aggression when things don't go their way, when their problems overwhelm them. Instead of seeking out solutions to their problems which causes them stress, pain, etc. they will escape to sensual pleasures.
You might think I am just paranoid but I have taken to wearing a reflective vest like I saw regular Japanese doing at night. I was nearly run over by a black woman of all people a few months ago, who screamed at me, "Sorry, I didn't see you." I had a friend who was run over for wearing black too, and no, we aren't black and it doesn't even make a difference.
So I'd rather look like a dork and live. I will never wear a black coat at night while on the road again. Buy one for yourself and live longer.
>>20400 Good point: I need to pin some flashing led reflectors to my vest like some bikers wear, to save myself from people without headlights. That might have saved the life of that woman in Temple Arizona who stepped off a dark curb into the street and was killed by a self-driving car. Those cars see with infrared cameras, so you need infrared LEDs too.
One of the best things you can do is to remove the possibility of being run over. This means not being on the edge of the road in the first place or not crossing the road when a vehicle is moving in your direction.
If you act like every car can't see you, it put's you in a better mindset.
The greatest men in history are more likely to be atheists than the population. Imagine if we had more atheists.

Yesterday VBJ (Youth party of Vlaams Belang) went to the Brussels "refugee" hotspot. They handed out contact details of notorious marxist professors, who push open-border and immigration. Those who push immigration, can start by housing and feeding them.

Just letting you guys know I will be stepping down as BO. I have made /mu/ to what I needed it to be and I am basically satisfied in what I set out to do. I really enjoyed the building of the community and steering it towards a good place for discussion of music. Some of you guys may have felt I tripped up sometimes and some of those times I may have or in my opinion I would have felt the right thing to do. Either way I enjoyed the experience of being BO of endchan's /mu/.
I will be transferring ownership to odilitime so you can feel a sense of relief that the board is not going to be ruined by an unknown BO. The transfer will take place 24 hours from the time this post is submitted. You can always contact me at email@example.com if you felt like shooting the shit.
>Sea levels were 20 meters higher >Greenland was green >Antarctica had trees
I just don't see us stopping it before it thaws Antarctica as long as get-rich-now capitalism remains unchecked. When are we going to make the best of it? We need to just abandon the equator, kill off the penguins and colonize the edge of Antarctica. I'm going to be the first to buy land in Antarctica as soon as it's legal.
I love this idea of using rain buckets to capture the runoff from the roofs for irrigation. I already have solar panels on the roof so this is the next step toward living a zero carbon lifestyle. It amazes me that people aren't already capturing rain from their roofs, which should be REQUIRED for residential buildings, along with solar or wind. My water utility bill last month was 30 dollars, but if I get enough rain buckets maybe I would never have to water my lawn again.
>>20033 It still costs money to pump the water to your house, and that means electricity which means unnecessary global warming. You probably have enough water on your roof to flush your toilets and water your gardens for free.
America does have idiotic water laws, but it's more stupid to comply and pay the local water monopoly more than you have to. And what are you going to do if there's a 5 day blackout and water stops flowing like in Venezuela? https://youtube.com/watch?v=pY740f_Srp8 [Embed]
You can be prepared with 100 gallons of renewable water in a bucket you can boil, plus what is in your water heater. And if you buy a 1000 gallon cistern you can grow crops, or trade it to needy neighbors for their goodwill.
>>20021 Not in all places its not, the most control freak bureaucratic laws that prohibit rain water collection ironically happen to be extremely "progressive" populated areas (with an exception to Utah). Out in more rural areas they literally don't give a flying fuck if you collect rainwater or do some homesteading. It really comes down to whether or not you live in highly populated areas. And even if it is illegal in a more rural area chances are you won't get caught doing it because you'll be out of sight out of mind. Thats why I actually enjoy living in a old hick town. No one bothers us out here. If you don't mind living in depressed areas, small towns are good places to find safe havens from bratty bureaucrats which major cities attract like magnets.
>>20391 The east coast is rainy and doesn't have those laws for a reason. It has nothing to do with being progressive, it has to do with miners and a history of absolute capitalism you uneducated panjandrum. The west was not progressive in the not so distant past and treated the scarce water as the rights of miners. Unlike in the east, miners could buy water rights because CAPITALISM. They would divert entire rivers to sweep over entire mountain faces to separate the sediments with sluice mining/hydraulic mining in their hunt for gold.
Western states were historically pressured by rich and greedy miners (and ranchers) into passing laws to prevent people from capturing any water runoff on their property which might ultimately go into rivers where someone has a 100 year old water claim. That way these capitalists can keep a monopoly on water, and sell you water at inflated prices.
This form of capitalism is a conservative ideology, and socialism its a progressive opposite you dumb fuck. Socialism is all about protecting common resources and making them available to the public, not turning most of the water over to a handful of guys with hereditary claims to river water.

There have always been boomers on image boards. We ran the BBSes that image boards came from. Not every SA goon b4 moot 4chan was under 40.

I voted for Sanders and I'll vote for him again. Nobody I know who watched the moon landing live cares about Biden because he's got no message or spine. He was just Obama's veep that stepped aside because it was supposedly Billary's turn.
>>19892 Trump inherited a falling Empire and there is almost nothing he can do to prevent our demise. Problems did not begin with him, many problems began long ago, as early as the 70s when Nixon removed America from the gold standard and since then we have seen massive industrial outsourcing, increasing debt insolvency, crumbling infrastructure, endless wars, growing crime rates and poverty exploding.... this does not end well for anyone. And no matter WHO is leader, it will not change the damage already done to this nation.
The best (and likely only) thing we can do is prepare for a collapse of the old system and a global financial reset which will create a lot of chaos, political animosity and hardships in the future.
>>19894 We are not a democracy, we are a Constitutional Republic. Or at least we are supposed to be a Constitutional Republic as what our Founders intended.
I voted for Trump honestly thinking there was some glimmer of hope that we could curb the inevitable but I'll admit I was dead wrong. Hillary would have been worse, sure..... but Trump is not fixing anything either. No matter how much he complains. America needs to realize we screwed up BIG TIME with decades of horrific failed policies and this is not just one leader's fault, the blood is on the hands of many officials going back decades ago. God help us all, thats all I can say at this point.
>>19920 Trump cares more about Israeli interests than the interests of America. This has been going on since Israel was founded with all 'our' leaders.
>>20363 Yep, its insanity. Instead of cutting of all the foreign aid we supply to other nations, Trump rather cut benefits for Americans? Hypocritical to say the very least. He is NOT the same man I thought I was voting for.
"The Christian god can easily be pictured as virtually the same god as the many ancient gods of past civilizations. The Christian god is a three headed monster; cruel, vengeful and capricious. If one wishes to know more of this raging, three headed beast-like god, one only needs to look at the caliber of people who say they serve him. They are always of two classes: fools and hypocrites."
>>20330 Greek religion was also very pro rending animals and people alive in a ritualistic frenzy (sparagmos). Why did christians keep the empowering bountifulness of Hellenistic paganism away from people with their backwards ideologies? I have no idea.
>>20333 So Greek religion had its dark side, like any religion. But Judaism was objectively worse and more anti-free thought. You cannot name Jewish philosophers who shook the world the way the Greeks did.
>>20329 >>20333 Man, this is really messed up. I love the Greeks and their culture, but this is just awful. >>20334 >So Greek religion had its dark side Before Christianity, there wasn't a single country in Europe that didn't practice human sacrifices. There was a lot of screwed up stuff going on in Europe before Christianity that I don't even want to mention in this thread.
But just an FYI, Christianity was extremely popular with the Greeks (same as with the Egyptians, where it spread like literal wildfire. Which is funny because they had older religious beliefs before the Greeks).
>>20330 >They never made a tradition of circumcising all babies for no reason Egyptians did it before the Israelis did. Muslims do it to this day. I don't like but, 'eh whatever.
>>20351 It was "popular" in part because it was forced on people just like Islam. Radical Christian's destroyed Greek temples, altars and statues while the Pro Christian Roman empire turned a blind eye and encouraged looting pagan temples gir gold to build Christian churches. Heretics and pagans were increasingly opressed, beat up, silenced and nursed.
Read "The Darkening Age" by Catherine Nixel for a full reckoning of this truth that pro-Christianity society has effectively censored. It doesn't even talk about how the Spanish forced people to convert or die, in Spain and in their colonies. You really think Indians would have converted without violence? Ha!
>>20362 What timeframe are you talking about?
I'm asking before everything after Constantine (you know something tells me he didn't really bother to understand the simple truth of the Gospel properly) and marriage of church and state becomes kind of an issue.
In short esoteric cults of the elite of Roman Empire (e.g. mithraism) adopted exoteric font of Christianity and kept going. Say we look deeper at that whole burning at the stake thing. Burning alive is how fire philosophers, Zoroastrian Magi, disposed of their enemies. It's the little things.
