I was destitute about it for a month, then I found soulseek. Still have my WCD coasters that I ordered to sent my friend an invite.

What I will forever mourn is the usermade lists though. It was an awesome way to find new music.

Skull fracture does not necessarily mean brain damage. There certainly is the risk of brain damage in mma, it's just this is not a good example of it.

You are right.
That being said, isn't a concussion essentially just a brain injury?

I understand that in football, the issue isn't concussive blows, but sub-concussive blows, that give people CRT.

I'd assume its the same in MMA.

So the key take away here is that if anyone on this board is going to do martial arts, it is advisable to find a bare knuckle style. Traditional karate dojos will fight without gloves.

If you're talking about sports, maybe. There's also competing in pure wrestling sports that don't involve strikes like Judo, catch wrestling, shoot wrestling, etc. Your potential for different sorts of limb injuries tend to be a bit higher with wrestling though but the danger of head trauma isn't so much. There's also plenty of sports with rules that focus on points rather than knockout blows such as Taekwondo. Alternatively, if you simply avoid sports there are plenty of martial arts that constrain their discipline to teach useful skills without putting yourself in as serious bodily harm.

Extremely vulgar showcase of capitalist society.

Literal blood money. Fictional media and video games are superior in every way to get my rocks off regarding violent tendencies.

Am I the only one who doesn't like "travel" ?? I see literally no point in even going to a different region in my own country, let alone another one.

I feel like saying you hate travel in this instagram era is like saying you hate puppies or chocolate or apple pie something. I really don't like the whole experience. It's exhausting. My idea of a vacation is sleeping for a week.

I like to travel but I don't like to reach the destination.
I enjoy sitting in a car and seeing different places and houses and people.

My main qualm against travelling is safety and having money to travel. Need me a travelling obsessed rich instagram gf who'll drag me to places. I'm too much of a hikkimori

Help me find this documentary by Shane O'Sullivan, please. I couldn't find any torrents.

It's about Ulrike Meinhof and Fusako Shigenobu, the leaders of the German Red Army Faction and the Japanese Red Army respectively.

An anon a while back recommended Star Trek to me because it was the most "communist" media produced in capitalist society. All Captain Kirk does is hop from planet to planet and fuck space bitches. Is there communism or have I been memed? Apparently the director of the show was influeced by Posadism but outside the aliens I do not see gommunism anywhere in the show.

I watched the first episode. It has such an amazing sense of dread and atmosphere. It's incredible, meticulously done. And that makes it all the more frustrating that so much of it is dedicated to racist, chauvinist anti-Sovietism. The real tragedy in the series is the waste of talent that went behind creating it.

Holy shit, I've rarely seen a movie as on the nose and blunt in its critique of capitalist society, and yet Americans seemingly cannot comprehend what it's a criticism of. I've seen "It's about authoritarianism" "It's about the death of free market competition" "It's secretly about socialism!"
Holy fuck, how can it be possible to be as retarded as burgers? It's like unless a film blatantly jumps up and down shouting "CAPITALISM BAD" they literally can't parse out any form of symbolism or allegory at all. Why are these people such idiotic apes?
The writer/director was literally part of the South Korean Socialist Party, tf is the dysfunction in burger brains?

Honestly the ending of this movie to me seems to suggest that proletarian martyrdom is a preferable outcome than simply replacing the porky or just giving in to capitalism.

If you interpret the train as capitalism (imo this interpretation is far more complete and meaningful than interpreting the train as the state, or more specifically, the engine as the state) then what Wilfred is doing at the end is simply replacing the capitalist of the enterprise. Giving it to Curtis, so Wilfred ceases being the capitalist but the train continues going as normal. Imagine a scenario where Curtis actually accepts this. It would be an extremely crude ending but it would realistically showcase that the vast majority of people would switch their positions immediately if their class interests changed.

The reason why I think interpreting the train/engine as the state is kind of ineffective is because the train is supposed to represent unsustainability. It won't exist forever and the people that believe and teach this (the teacher in the kindergarten scene for example) are delusional, basically an allegory for capitalist realism. Also, interpreting the train as a state is simply too convenient for what this movie is trying to go for, it basically suggests that by killing Wilfred (proletarians seizing the "state") they can run the train according to their interests. But why would the repressive forces and de facto allied classes of the bourgeoisie allow this? Will the guards and crowd of drug addict lumpens now bow down to Curtiss and his people? No they won't, because by killing Wilfred Curtiss doesn't actually gain anything. He's not in control of anything. This is the opposite situation of workers seizing state power, because "controlling" the train (by killing its "owner") isn't a comparable situation to taking state power.

This is why the train as capitalism interpretation works so much better. Here it actually makes sense that Wilfred is passing ownership of the train to Curtiss, because he's expecting (correctly) that if Curtiss seizes the train, he can only run it the same way Wilfred has been running it the whole time. If he attempted any radical change the repressive forces of the train and other classes would oust him.

Also this interpretation also works because of the relation between the train, the classes, and the resources in the train. If the train had unlimited resources, there would be no reason to dive the train iPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>If anything humanity would perish much quickly if the resources of the train are spread much more evenly.
You fucking porky bootlicker kill your self. If resources were spread more evenly, humans could solve all their ecological problems. Capitalists think that their wealth will make them invulnerable to ecological crisis, that fixing it has low priority. in new-speak: they don't see them self as stake-holders of the ecosphere. Industrial society is crazy powerful. The only reason, and i mean that literally, there is no other reason, why we can't deal with ecological problems is because wealthy capitalists that hoard the means of production, don't deem it to be in their interests to solve it.

The train is not industrial society, and I wrote in my post that the train's resources will eventually run out regardless of who is running the train.

> The golden snub-nosed monkey is endangered due to habitat loss. For instance, lichens are the main staple of the monkey's diet and dead trees have the greatest lichen coverage. Unfortunately, dead trees are harvested, thus reducing the quality of the habitat and availability of food. The monkey is a highly selective feeder, so damage to its habitat seriously impacts the species
