>Underground buildings need insulation from ground water

Author says that it is not a problem because depth is only 1 meter, although it looks suspicious. Yes, it is better to build this thing on relatively dry place.

>I think the houses at Bolungarvik aren't below surface level tho, I'll check it later.

I couldn't easily find info about them too. But looks like they have ground as floor, but nowadays most houses (at least houses I've seen) has raised floor that helps to prevent issues with humidity and water.

Trying to judge by these images. I think they are partially built underground. The entrance and the floor there is at ground level but because of the landscape and the coastline the back of that building is below of it.
The floor is scattered with gravel.

Yeah there's no attic just high ceiling. The crossbeams are at very low height tho and the window is built very low too. The proportions in general are kinda weird.
The stones are just placed there no mortar. I've seen such here in a village/small town, both houses and fences/walls were built liek that, I've no pics sadly.

If I built a house in this method I would do how you wrote it with raised floor, and I would make a separate room from the attic. Than however the whole house should be larger, which complicates heating as well. But ofc we're now talking about a home.

>our methodology leverages technology to conduct surveys anonymously through web-enabled devices
>unlike most other surveys that try to compare LGBT demographics between different countries, our surveys are based on a consistent set of questions
So it seems like this was an Internet-only English-only survey. People taking a LGBT quiz in a foreign language (even if English is relatively common) don't seem like a representative sample.

>“Do you identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender?” [Yes / No / Prefer not to say]
>some people chose to not respond to the questions, but the percentages reported in this post do not ignore this share of the population
Not sure what this means, but it could mean they translated (47% straight, 3% gay, 50% fuck off) to (94% straight, 6% gay).

But lacking depth in both area. And maybe that's the charm of it. Instead of tryhard "simulation" it gives fun gameplay.

Few words for those who don't know it (I think it was discussed earlier tho). It's an RTS played in Medieval Europe. The player chooses a country (three starting date is available) and manages it. It has both strategic and tactical level.
The map is divided into provinces with towns where you can build stuff and recruit units (if certain building criterion meet). Of course on this you can send your marshalls with their armies all over the place. The map can be viewed from up close, or on a level which looks liek a map with different layers (political, economical, diplomatic etc etc).
On tactical level the player fights his battles and sieges, if he wishes as they can be autoresolved. As far as I remember battles itself are frustrating experience as they nowhere close to the Total War's level of managebility.
The royal family is far more simple than in CK2. You got the king and can arrange marriages. The Queen's only job is giving birth to princes and princesses. Three of both at tops. You can choose heir freely from the princes, however the older brother(s) can rebel at the death of the old king, so it's easier just leave the oldest as an heir by default. Princesses only use to marry them into families whomst members you want to assassinate as they can help in that. Otherwise they are liabilities as their husband can show in the bill when your king dies and demand provinces from you. Now this can be done intentionally to instigate war.
And there's the royal court where you can relegate into your princes with different roles: marshall, priest, landlord, builder and spy. You can also hire just some guys for the job, but they tend to be enemy spies and make all kinds of mischief, so stick to princes, they are reliable. Marshalls are mobile they command the armies and travel with them. They earn experience the player can buy skills with those for the marshall and give bonuses to his army. The other dudes in the court can manage provinces in some way, the priest can convert the people, landlord gather more taxes, builder make building faster. The spy you can use as counter enemy spies (if you hire dudes) or send him to other kingdoms in hope they get hired and where they can do all kinds of fun depending their role. With a little luck the enemy family go extinct and he will in herit the kingdom. Fun.
What else? Hmm. Stuff.
Oh yeah. There are general units which available everywhere, special regional type of units and kingdom specific units.

I played a VN once, I don't remember the title though. I even wanted to make a thread about it but then I forfeited. It was about a romance between university students. I'm not sure if it would qualify as cringy dating sim or excuse for porn. There were some sex scenes but I could tell main focus was on the writing and I though it was quite well for such production. I enjoyed it and played it again multiple times to get various results from different situations and see where will they lead me.
I got hit by romantic feels that made me think constantly of the characters and made me play the game over and over (I tried to look for other vns by this author but they were shit). I also had this sad though that the life that I experienced in game will never really happen to me and I think I cried too.
Then I realized what was going on and I purged the game immediately from my disk and as much possible from my head too. It made me think if this is what chinese cartoons does to people heads.

I wrote this in the art thread that sometimes I got attached to certain novels or rather the adventures of the heroes so I feel kinda sad when I finish the book. I have similar with certain games like Vice City and San Andreas, and TV shows like House and Lost. These stuff aren't necessarily need to be great (the mentioned ones are good tho) I think the characters needs to be relatable.

These threads aren't successful but...
... I saw this show, watched twice. Bretty darn good. It's about the lost Franklin expedition to map the Northwestern Passage. Some mystery and supernatural was added but I believe their real story had to be a nightmare as well.
Highly recommended.

Well I dunno much about the Northwest Passage except what I found on Wikipedia meanwhile I was watching this show. And some from a book by Kenneth Roberts, titled Northwest Passage I read when I was a kid. This book ofc has nothing to do with the show it has entirely different topic. It is based on the life of Robert Rogers, an Irish officer of the Seven Years War who led his own ranger force - which based their strategy and tactics on the native Indian way of warfare - then was a governor of a backwater frontier settlement where he searched for the NW Passage.

The NW Passage is basically the shipping route north of the American continent. It was discovered finally by the Norwegian Roald Amundsen - the dude who was the first to reach the South Pole -, and it is very significant because... well it isn't as most of the time it's unsailable as it's frozen solid. In the past few years it's importance grew as with the global warming it stands open most of the time and certain ships just cannot into Panama canal so they have to travel south of South America and for some destination a northern route would be more advantageous.
But back in the 19th century it was completely useless but they kept trying and hoping it's just seasonally frozen.

I've been doing a fair bit of soul-searching recently and started reading about all sorts of mental disorders since I suffered from sudden insomnia for a week straight. It happened about a month ago: a girl I had a crush on for a while but had no balls to make a move on (I know...) got together with some annoying cunt and when I found out I started having incredible trouble sleeping. The first night I literally did not sleep. The day after I was incredibly tired at work until the moment I got into bed. I don't know if it was a panic attack I was experiencing, but I started associating the moment of laying my head on the pillow with anxiety, increased heart rate, the full lot. This happened four or five nights straight. At one point I was alone in my bedroom and I burst out crying from all this stress and this seemed to make things better because that night I slept without a problem.
So I started reading online about mental disorders and found out about fear of missing out (FOMO). The more I read about it the more I realised I've been suffering from it my whole life (well since I was a preadolescent anyway). When I was a teenager I felt inadequate because my life seemed so boring compared to other people's and it probably was since I was a bit of a late bloomer for most things. At university I did go to parties and stuff but I always felt like other people were making the most out of their university experience and I was lagging behind.
Right now I think I am so unconsciously anxious to experience everything I should be experiencing in my 20's that I'm doing loads of things and saying yes to every invitation or event, which is great because I enjoy this mostly, but at the same time whenever some friend or acquaintance is doing something without me I feel like shit because I'm missing out on that experience. This happens even if I'm doing something else. As I'm writing this I guess that it might be wanting everyone to have fewer experiences than me (or as many as me), wanting to feel at the centre of attention and also focusing too much on other people and what they do rather than myself.
I also realised that this thing was probably worsened or caused by the fact that when I was in middle school my mother would quite often make me feel guilty or bad about not going out with friends and instead spending all my time in front of my computer or generally inside. I remember one time hearing her talking about it on the phone with some friend, which I recall made me feel awful.
Now having realised this I don't know if there's any way to make it (or my other social anxieties) better.


Just wanted to write this somewhere. You could write about your own problems I guess or offer some perspective.

You can still talk to her, get friendly, make yourself important to her (you can test this by figuratively pushing her a bit from yourself, if she's making effort to contact you then she's hooked), then turn things into serious. I highly doubt it that guy is her love of her life... Of course you shouldn't say anything like: "that guy is an asshole and she is making a mistake and you want to save her" and other such bullcrap.
Moving on will take time, depending on the person how long. In this case you must close her out of your life, don't stalk her on social media, delete her photos you saved etc. And ofc talk to other grills. But not about her. You can tell them ofc you are hurt about an grill but no specifics, just say you're moving on and don't want to talk about her. Some grills like to give comfort, you might find such. Show interest in her. Smile, ask questions, give encouraging opinions about her nonsense.

I guess this is pretty sound advice. I'll try not to see her although it's difficult since we hang out with the same people and we've been doing a lot of things together and I don't know anyone else who's up to do all the things I'd like to do in my spare time (I'm an introvert who finds it hard to open up to people although I'm working on this). I guess I'll go back to doing these things on my own or with other people (if I do manage to find someone) in a pathetic effort to make her jealous.
>But also you can view it from another angle.
It's the main reason I'm writing this. It's not therapy but it is a bit like going to the shrink in that you're putting your thoughts out there and organising them.

I really suggest putting an effort to meet other people. Some stuff can be fun doing alone but social isolation is a trap. Need a healthy balance.

I think a good general rule: if something feels bad, change it. If circumstances can't be changed (neither by actively changing them around the person nor by moving to other place among new circumstances) than the person has to change him-/herself in some way.

Bunch of train wrecks threw themselves at him, only to discover that what you see on TV is not reality. Hollywood will out, as insiders say. It always does.

Anyway, absent of their Cosby fix, these were women who would not hesitate to aquatint themselves with the stellar renown of a Polanski, or Weinstein, or Wynn, or Spacey, or so on, if given a quarter of a chance to do so. Yes, what Cosby did with them was way too creepy. However, it's not like he was pulling innocent children out of an orphanage, carting them off to a pizza shop, or something.

Fame and fortune are nice to have, untrammeled paths of wondrous opportunity to enjoy life in ways most can never know. But, of Cosby and his naive hangers on, let's just say better him than you or me.

This is why no point discussing this with you:
1.
- you don't read what I write
or
- you don't understand what I write
or
- you ignore what I write and and simply just invent things and try to put it in my mouth (strawman fallacy)
In any case consider placing a giant cactus into your anus.
2.
You try to silence opposing opinions with ad hominems, i.e. calling others feminists and such. Meanwhile you are the feminist. Here's why:
Feminism by definition is: a range of political movements, ideologies, and social movements that share a common goal: to define, establish, and achieve political, economic, personal, and social equality of sexes.
And you are exactly doing their work by judging men and women on equal basis which is stupid as men and women are inherently different.
Therefore you are the feminist here. And only you.

I know that it is a joke, but Jew working in a kolhoz is a joke by itself. They all were middle class at least. Although my grandma often told story about Jew who worked as simple worker at their organization in USSR times. It was pretty rare so she remembered it for life.

Jews wasn't so privileged and elitary though, it was more a joke than reality.

A Soviet joke:
- That famous composer born in poor Jewish family. When he was 7 years old, his parents bought him a piano and sent him to music school...
- Sorry, but you said that he was born in poor family
- I said that he was born in poor _Jewish_ family.

And yes that Kolhoz->Kibbutz stuff was one as well, much ironing on Kibbutz. I also heard the real work in these communal farming centers Palestinians do the real work. Handling manure isn't the most kosher thing.

This happens even if I'm doing something else. As I'm writing this I guess that it might be wanting everyone to have fewer experiences than me (or as many as me), wanting to feel at the centre of attention and also focusing too much on other people and what they do rather than myself.
I also realised that this thing was probably worsened or caused by the fact that when I was in middle school my mother would quite often make me feel guilty or bad about not going out with friends and instead spending all my time in front of my computer or generally inside. I remember one time hearing her talking about it on the phone with some friend, which I recall made me feel awful.
Now having realised this I don't know if there's any way to make it (or my other social anxieties) better.


Just wanted to write this somewhere. You could write about your own problems I guess or offer some perspective.
