U.N. charter says that nobody can claim land on Antarctica anymore. But if you are just going for naming locations, you might have to deal with geologist, cartographers or some other scientists if it isn't named already.

Friday nights are typically the times when people go out to do things—see a movie, go to a restaurant, whatever—to kick off the weekend. TV ratings/viewership numbers are noticeably lower on Friday nights as a result.

You could put forth the argument—don’t know how well it’d go over in court—that sharing complete works still technically covered by copyright because they’re out of print/unavailable in commerce is an attempt to preserve such works for future archival and research, which would turn such sharing into Fair Use. (A good example lies in abandonware sites that distribute games you can’t find on legal services and would remain otherwise unavailable.)

Well, I decided to so some research (I was looking up slant rhymes anyway) and here it is:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhyme#Identical_rhymes
Is the repeated use of the same word a rhyme? Technically, yes, I think. Then again, hammer and carpenter are technically rhyming, despite not being a 'perfect rhyme'.
Is it a perfect rhyme? No, as "the articulation that precedes the vowel in the [rhyming] words must differ". Both nigger and nigger make the same 'n' sound before the 'i' [derp] and are therefore not a perfect rhyme in the way that leave and believe are also not a perfect rhyme.

So we can both be correct and incorrect if we want. Schrödinger would be proud.

Get fit, man.
1.) it only sucks for the first month or so, after that it's pretty dang fun, I really look forward to going to the gym on my days off. Gives you the excitement of setting a new high score or record every single week, and it's very easy to see progress since everything is numbers.
2.) it won't make you any less awkward and shy, probably (ymmv), but it does change how people treat you. Fat quiet dudes are losers and school-shooters, buff/fit quiet dudes are serious and dedicated, fat+muscular quiet dudes are gentle giants
3.) even if it solves nothing else, at least you'll be buff and have a reason to leave the house.

Diet + exercise are one of the areas where I actually do know what I'm talking about, if you have questions or want myths dispelled or even if you want a concrete diet+exercise plan because you suck at winging things, I'm more than willing to help.

Canned sardines, pouch tuna, and eggs are all cheap and very high in protein. Chicken thighs are dirt cheap, and not bad at all for you. Whey protein, as long as you aren't just paying for the brand, is probably the cheapest dollar:protein ratio you can get--i get mine from MyProtein, super cheap comparatively.
For your non protein needs, potatoes are insanely cheap, sweet potatoes a bit less so. Rice and beans are both cheap starches, and old fashioned Oatmeal is even cheaper, plus has the benefit of having a low glucose index, which means that it won't spike your insulin, which means you stay full longer. Bananas and apples are both pennies apiece. Those frozen steamer bags of veggies are like $2 each and can easily last for two meals.

The most important thing you can do, diet-wise, if you're trying to get some muscles, is eat enough. That's why, if you're a gym regular, there are all those other regulars who are ALWAYS there and NEVER make any progress--they're not eating enough. This is why diets like GOMAD exist: because you can't trust a small person to eat enough, you have to get them to drink their calories. You can get big and swole eating nothing but McDoubles and a multivitamin, long as you're eating enough of them. (though I don't recommend that for a lot of reasons)

Anyway, supplements.
I...am not sure what you're wanting to supplement? There are supps for everything, even outside the gym. So I'll go over the most popular ones I guess.
>Whey protein
Legit. It's not a magic gains-producer, it's essentially just a way to get protein if you're not getting enough without having to eat 2-3 steaks a day. It's just food, brah.
>creatine monohydrate
Literally the most researched sports supplement in existence. Safe, effective. It makes your muscles somewhat bigger (though somewhat softer) and increases your endurance. Won't directly add any strength, but the fact that it lets your muscles go longer without getting fatigued will make it seem that way.
Downsides including speeding up the balding process if you're predisposed to MPB, and absolutely devastating your stomach (which is why I can't take it, I have a sensitive baby stomach thanks to having some organs removed)
>Vitamin D
Uh, if you have a vitamin D deficiency (protip: if you're posting on /baw/ you do), take some? Vitamins are good bro.
>Fish oil
An absolute godsend for soreness. My doc recommended I eat more fatty fish when I told her about some joint pain I was having, started eating a tin of brisling sardines every night and I've never felt better wrt soreness and pain. I imagine taking the capsules works just fine too.
>Zinc
This is something I hear YMMV on, but personally, it sent my sex drive through the roof. 10/10 would recommend.

If you have anything specific you want advice on, I'll be glad to share what I know, but "supplements" is a pretty vast umbrella term.

If it’s your browser, I’m not sure how to fix that. If it’s an image editor and you’re trying to resize it, do so without any resampling and using whole number factors (2×, 3×, you get the picture). If it’s an image editor and you’re zooming in, stick with whole number factors of zoom so pixels don’t look blurred as fuck.

How does it affect you though? Why not just let people find their own identities rather than insisting that they conform to your rules?

Sure, if they're asking you to build a separate bathroom for every tick they see as being on the gender spectrum, you can stand up for yourself and say "that is too expensive and is a ridiculous thing to demand of me." But if the extent of what they expect from you is to use certain pronouns, how is that worth fighting over?

Personal individuality is important, I get that, but at what point does it become attention-seeking nonsense?

Non-binarity and genderfluidity do have basis in medical science, but they're both pretty incredibly rare.
I don't really like people using "nonbinary" as a gender identity when really they mean "I'm a tomboy" or "I'm pretty feminine," because it undermines the authenticity of some peoples' real honest contrasting gender identities and biological sex. I've known a dysphoric trans person who had a lot of trouble getting their doc to believe them because they'd seen so many "transtrenders" that they really had upped their bar so that they didn't prescribe HRT to someone who just thought it would be cool to be a different gender.

Also the concept of "fictionkin" (or spacekin, animalkin[back in my day they were just called furries], etc) is pretty ridiculous and most people who adopt that label are overall awful.
Most of them are like 13 I guess but they should still be informed that pretending they're an oppressed minority because they like pretending they're a galaxy is really hurting a very serious cause.

I actually did something for Halloween for the first time in my life; my mother's always hated Halloween (not a religious thing, she just doesn't see the point) so I never went trick or treating... but a friend of mine invited me to a Halloween night at a local rock club he goes to a lot, so I figured "why the fuck not?" and had a damn good time. I missed Thriller, Let's Do The Time Warp and the Ghostbusters theme tune while queuing at the bar.

Trying to transfer bookmarks onto my Android phone is the most infuriating thing I've encountered in a long time. Chrome is a piece of shit on Windows that forces updates without a reasonable way to turn them off, and the sync to Chrome on Android is only available as long as you're signed in to it. Firefox won't sync because I have too many bookmarks, but I know from past use that it will store them on the phone afterwards without needing to be signed into sync, so I would need to delete about 1500 of them to get it to work. All the bookmark import apps are shit because they don't store folder structures properly, giving a horrible mess of all bookmarks sorted alphabetically.

If everyone in the academic circle agrees on a theory, it becomes the commonly accepted theory, which is often misinterpreted as a definite fact by other people who have better stuff to do.

I mean, lots of people believe gods exist, despite their existence only being provably anecdotally. It answers enough questions to be accepted as a common idea, and thus a majority of people accept it as a fact.

For poops it seems kind of counter to the point of poops, but with LPs I get it. It has more to do with feeling like what you're putting out is of high quality, that even if it's a kind of entertainment that isn't usually considered "good" people can at least tell you put effort into it and actually tried to make something worth watching rather than just farting out videos and expecting people to watch and like it.

At least that's how I approached it when I tried to do the lets play thing. Being introduced to LPs through retsupurae probably had something to do with that.

People tend to say you need good chemistry for a romance to work.

But that is not true at all; in real life people with 0-to-negative chemistry fall in wub just fine.

You need chemistry to make entertaining fictional romance, although romance does not need chemistry to exist.

If you’re within a couple of years of 18, it doesn’t seem as skeevy as someone, say, twice as old trying to get in the 18-year-old’s pants. An older person who leverages social influence/authority over the 18-year-old as an “easy” route to sex makes that skeeviness all the worse.

Yep, someone knows their stuff. I didn't get the burger in the reactor though, a few buildings down on the same compound is the canteen for workers and visitors/tourists (which just doesn't look as interesting).

The fry basket is for shredding planes in case of a terrorist kamikazi attack.

Maybe it pisses you off because it looks like shit.

Shots are usually still because that's how people are used to looking at things, we aren't always wobbling around or standing on a boat. A normal camera view reflects this.

Shaky cam is based around the idea that we are looking through a camera, and for fake documentaries I can see why they'd do it this way. The part that doesn't make sense is that any actual documentary not made by retarded monkeys is filmed with a still cam, because they want to look professional. Now we've got all these professionally made fake documentaries trying to look as amateur as possible, and it just forms this big stupid circle, like an idiot ouroboros. Amateurs imitating pros and pros acting like amateurs.

To be honest, despite my rant I don't really care as long as it isn't really overblown. And as long as it's actually meant to be viewed through a camera, if it's a show with a natural pov then it bugs the hell out of me because there's no reason for it to be shaking. The second half of District 9 really bugged me because of that.

Floating on top of the water means the friction being exerted between the boat being pulled and the water itself are minimal. Absent friction, any source of kinetic energy is going to cause something to move, even if it's much smaller than the object being pushed or pulled. Wheels make it possible to do similar things with cars, though there's more traction from the weight of the cars being pushed on the ground, so the allowable size differences are different. But if you think about it, a semi truck works much the same way--the "truck" itself is much, much smaller than the bed that it's pulling a lot of the time, often even when you look at mass rather than just volume.

My old dog died some years ago. I had him from age 7 to 21. That was pretty fucking rough. To make matters worse, I had already planned to visit home the weekend AFTER he died. I was really close to seeing him for one last time. I was pretty gutted.

What helped me get over his death was the realization that he was a stray that we found. Had we not taken him in, he may not have lived to see 14 additional years. Your situation may not be similar to mine, but take solace in the fact that she landed in the hands of good owners and lived a long, happy life.

Another dog I lost (though he didn't pass away) because of my parents losing their home and having to move to a small apartment. That one still gets to me. I try not to think too much about him because there was nothing I could do. I hope someone adopted him.

My point exactly.

It is also this way because any argument on the Internet has a 75% chance of being invaded by actual retards and trolls who will pretend to be retarded. For example, a "thought control vs letting people decide what is right" argument has a high chance of being invaded by troles who will say something like "if you are not a neo-nazi like me you as assjeydubya". That is a derail and most likely a deliberate attack to kill the argument.

No matter what argument it is, always check if either side has retards and trolls "helping". Every time a member of either side makes a statement, ask yourself: is this person
– retarded
– trolling (good trolls will NEVER admit to being what they are)
before taking their argument seriously.
