WARNING, Im going to talk about the book I am reading which is called "the bolshevik myth" which has political content.
Now that you can't sue me for reading politics in this status, let's proceed.
For the third time! POLITICS AHEAD!!!
Man, Russia in the year 1920 was BAD. People starving, the tcheka killing people, prosecution of anarchists...
And yet, Im still an anarchist. Why? It wasn't their fault.
Russia was a country with hundreds of problems before the october revolution, after it, the other countries, the whole world turned against it. They had back then what we have now, an embargo, and their country was already starving!
As for the prosecution of left elements, the country couldn't afford having different political parties, that would only separate the goverment and shatter it. As much as I love anarchism it can't be made without having a goverment first. There has to be some kind of order before the people can take power.
There are two political positions, capitalism and communism, we already saw and are keep seeing that capitalism doesn't work for the masses, I have several friends who are in danger of losing their homes, I know their pain. If capitalism doesn't work, the other only option is socialism I suppose. Simple logic.
Ooh this is really good!
I don't buy cards anymore. I don't play it online either. Got an account back when Arena was in beta but I didn't want to invest loads of my time into a failed company. Just get everyone to cough some cash for pigment ink, print the decks, and have your own event for the new set at someone's home. You'll have your deck in a day, you just won't be able to compete with it in official tournaments. Now, I'm not implying anything ,but I've also heard that Chinese bootleg can be pretty authentic
This is more educational or entertaining than other of my posts here, I suppose, and less surprising. Today, I stumbled across my school report from 2nd grade, where I was about 9 years old. It lists different behaviors and judges them, aside from simply subjects. I am described with difficulty to socialize, to dislike PE/sports, liking games, not too interested in helping others, bad handwriting, organized. This isn't true for all of them, but I am baffled how many of them stayed true even still today (games, handwriting, sports). Or stuff I did struggle for a long time, such as socializing, or didn't see a value in for a long time (helping others). So we seem to preserve quite a lot of our quirks through life, it appears, or for quite some time. But I wonder - Likely we get under huge social influences even on a very young age. I am not even talking 9yo. I am talking about 4yo, maybe even 2yo. I think we are absolutely underestimating how society shapes someone. This let me question whether some of this attitudes simply developed by what my environment taught me.
I found a mechanical hdmi switcher (because I dont have enough ports in my tv, and I hate the electronic ones)
it took me YEARS to find one
People in Europe will probably think it works somewhat like the old SCART switchbox (there might be an equivalent for composite but I've never seen that, cause its not common here)
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/132515439982 (I think I saw one like it for the states by RadioShack)
@PanPan I've found the electronic ones (with a button and 3 lights) but I hate those with a passion (they automatically switch once something turns on),
this is the first one that I've found that's mechanical in nature (so it needs no power and make a "KLUNK" when you press one of the buttons)
unless you actually know the context of this scene don't even bother saying anything :p
Welp, welcome back to F1! And what a chjaotic race the delayed start of this season was. 9(!) drivers retired, a McLaren on podium, a Ferrari on podium(Yes, with how they perfored this weekend that IS an unusual sight) and the next Vettel spin meme. Bottas dominated from start to end while Hamilton losed positions already not even a hour before the start and losed positions after the race. McLaren had probably the best start in the season since 2013/2014 with a podium and 5th place. Ferrari thanks to Leclerc stll got alotta points while Red Bull at their home race, unlike last 2 years, gets completly out without a single point. Mercedes 19-i mean Racing Point, Renault, AlphaTauri and Alfa Romeo, each with only 1 driver left all score points, only Williams, unlike germany 2019, gets unlucky as Latifi is last and last unfortunalty is 11th(How much Russell had raged if Latifi in his first race gets more point then Russell in an entire season?). Certainly a start, hope it stays exciting in Austria next...well Austria 2...it's the goddamn same race, Bottas leasding championship with 50 points after?
You also could say Austria 1 2020 was Red Bulls germany 2019
At the current calender obviously every driver technically still can win this championship.

If y'all can drive one car AND ONLY one car for the rest of your life, what would it be?
So, uh, I'm not sure if I shared this with this particular thread, but I'm deciding to change the way I identify my sexuality. I think that calling myself homoflexible may be more accurate than just saying I'm gay. I mean it isn't too much different than that, but I will confess I occasionally do feel a sexual pull for the opposite sex. Romantically, though, I still have no interest in girls. Pretty sure I have this in my profile though, it's nothing new.
