Old thread here: >>418819
In my mind I think it is good that someone made a new one of these threads.
I'm getting paid annoyingly low for increasingly more complex work at my job.
started out as frontend for years, but by now I'm only doing backend with no increase in salary.
I'm starting to detest the presence of gods in stories/media.
Its not as if I'm the sort of person who wants to burn religious buildings to the ground and/or mock people who have religious beliefs in real life, but over time I've just gotten sick of these pointlessly powerful gods in fictional stories.
Their presence just detracts from the settings involved or the actions and struggle of 'regular' beings in the plot.
Well, that obviously depends on the story in question, but gods can be handled good in a story, as well as used as a stupid plot device.
I feel that. Any examples?
Thoughts on Superman?
Don't have a problems with Clark himself. He's a good upstanding individual who isn't actually as overpowered as "common knowledge" would say, being there's multiple other heroes and villains who can match or exceed his abilities.
It's only when he falls into the hands of powerlevel wankers or fanboy writers who only care about him being STRONK rather than being a good man that problems arise (or crappy writers who use him as a mouthpiece for their own petty feelings, that sucks too).
Kryptonians as a species are more annoying, when some writers portraying them as unstoppable physical gods that just need to sunbathe for a minute to becomes so. But honestly the bigger problem with neverending comicbooks is the obnoxious Power Creep that grows like a tumor.
Supes is the best when writers remember that he's a genuinely good guy, not because his abilities, but because he was raised to be an unselfish, helpful man who looks for the best in anyone.
It's probably why I prefer the 80s Byrne era Superman, who not only had hard limits on his powers (he gets smacked around a lot, sometimes described as needing week long vacations to recharge), but also because he got his powers late in his teens. So he became a good person first, then got powers.
I think he should be a cuck raising the lovechild of Lois and Batman.

The Spectre is far worse than Superman, he doesn't fit in a superhero universe with his bullshit as well as the contrivances that have him inflict monstrous punishment on no name people for their "sins" rather than going after the villains with actual actual atrocities under their belts. If anything he should be a monster the heroes team up and destroy.>>423053
The spectre only works as a plot device and half the time he just gives the heroes shit.Watched one video of a dude clearing out the drains on a flooded road (some fucking psycho drivers were driving on the pavement just so their cars wouldn't splash) in order that it could clear up and now my recommended videos is full of water-related shit like this.

Consequently the power of magic has gradually emerged from our conscious minds to fathom the unfathomable. Our most distinguished scientists reluctantly admit, that mankind is nothing but some billion creatures, sitting on a piece of solar driftwood floating in space.
Magic is the art of influencing the cause of events by the intervention of spiritual forces or some other occult device.
According to Arthur C. Clarke, any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. Early civilization often mistook the unexplainable world around them to be magic.
Rupert Sheldrake in his book "Seven experiments that could change the world" has stated that scientist's attitude toward their experiments affect the results of their experiments. There is no such thing as a definite fact in science and therefore the irrationality of magic plays an important part in our rational world.
Werner Heisenberg, the leading 20th century physicist has stated, that mass is a physical interpretation of energy.
Religious organizations have understood the power of magic; and therefore monopolized the interpretation of the supernatural to control the human mind.
The universe as a whole is beyond explanation. Only at the end of the 20th century the roman catholic church admitted, that the great visionary Galileo Galilei was, in fact, correct.
The second millennium has come to an end.
Scientists have to admit that the universe is magic.>>423149

It's not necessarily more police we need. Many arrested people are back on the streets with minor misdemeanour or probation or bail, or even something pathetic like a few years (half of which is dropped for "good behaviour"), and then continue to commit crimes. Over here, we have people who actually consider it a mark of adulthood to have been in prison, because everyone in their community has been there. They don't fear prison and police at all.
We need the juries doing their fucking jobs, then the existing police force will have more time to protect and serve instead of chasing the same hood gangsters again and again.

It's in season from spring till early autumn here, but it's in August/September that it becomes the worst. I take hayfever pills for it to block the allergy effects which is good, but when it gets really heavy it makes my nasal fluid darker and sometimes it congeals into small sharp pieces, so if I do as much as scratch my nose, it'll feel like something is piercing it from the inside. I have to blow my nose more often so it doesn't build up. And even though the season is over by early fall, the pollen dust stays in my room and in my system for a month more.

It was a great race.Replies:>>424740>>424730
>That drama on the last F1 GP of the year
The two leaders got to the last GP of the season with equal amount of points, so the last race took it all.
Then right around the end, one of the weaker players crashed, forcing a safety car, during which every racer had to line up, and no overtaking is allowed. So cars can visit the pit lanes with no penalty, and whatever lead any racer had is gone. Hamilton had a lead which would've been nearly impossible to beat at this time, but he was on used up tires, and Verstappen took the opportunity to change tires to the type with the most grip (but least life expectancy).
However, despite the two racers being on 1st and 2nd place, there were three other cars inbetween them, racers who were more than 1 entire laps behind. So despite the speed advantage, Verstappen had to pass 3 other cars before he could attack Hamilton, and he only had 1 lap to do so.
The twist was that the race judges told the over-lapped players to pass the safety car in advance before the race could restart, so they don't hold back anyone on what is going to be the last lap of the race.
So the entire world championship was decided on the VERY LAST LAP of the VERY LAST RACE, from a rolling start with both leaders starting from right next to each other. As you can imagine it was extremely tight.
And honourable mention goes to Perez, Verstappens teammate, who did a titanic battle with Hamilton to hold him back up after he changed tires, so his lead over Verstappen was not unsurmountable.There's been some new change to Youtube and now its become even more obnoxious in trying to recommend me various 'personalized playlists' of the worst kinds of bullshit.

Last I posted regularly on plus4 was when names were more popular. I remember Bea the bear, Anonymoose, pablo, tooth, Tiki, Bones, Twister (who I see is still around, hi Twister) and some others. This was like... 7-8 years ago. I was still a lonely college kid. Having names posting made me feel almost like I had friends, i guess these were parasocial relationships but I didn't know that then. I used to post little shitty stick figure blog comics in the SYM thread
Since then, I graduated college. I got into a relationship. I gained a lot of friends, some of which I thought would be friends with forever. I moved out of my parent's house. I got a job. I lived with my partner in a city far from our homes. Some of our friends fucked us over. We got married. My dad died. My mom went crazy and became a teenager and decided she didn't want to be a mom any more. Our friends scattered around, or suddenly had families.
Now my spouse works 12 hour nights and I'm alone 4/7 days of the week, just like when I was in college. I work remote so have no office interactions. I have no friends any more. I am basically a shut in. I used to do /toy/ photography and post it on 4chan. Then I tried doing an insta account but one on insta liked my photos as much as anons on 4chan. Now 4chan's culture is so different from how it used to be and I feel like pic related when I even just look at screencaps from it.
I am back where I was in college only I don't even have my parents around. I don't have 4chan to post on any more because I've moved past it. Instead I have wrinkles and health problems and bills.
I will take my leave of plus4 again. Maybe I'll post again in another 7 years

I was telling her its fine because don't have any cash trouble and she doesn't need to worry.
I've been feeling really busted up since then. Most of the time I'm what you might call comfortable numb but hearing her voice has got me feeling sad, anxious about her and the future, stuff like that. Not like I'm crying but there's this pressure on my eyes.>>424894
She's just trying to talk with you again after so long, but she doesn't know how to do so. This is either because she is really missing you, or she is very lonely, or worst case is she is ill.
Visit her if you can, or at least do like a video chat or something. If she doesn't have a way to do video chat, then use the money she sent to buy a tablet, set it up with skype or whatever the cool kids use for instant messaging nowadays, and gift it to her when you visit.Fucking Dentist appointment.

Even wikis do it, why does a wiki for a popular show care if I save their images of the series to my hard drive for later use?Replies:>>425418>>425416
WELL ACTUALLY, "webp" is more like a container for the container. It is still JPEG or PNG or GIF, you just need to become a coding wizard to break the original file from the webp prison.
Speaking of, a wiki for a gaming series I love does use WEBP now, but once I refresh the image it becomes a PNG again.>>425416
It's because most websites measure their performance via google pagespeed, and pagespeed gives you bonus points for using webp. It doesn't matter if half the stuff pagespeed measures is full bullshit, it still gives an absolute score, which makes it a quantifiable value by upper management.
However since NOBODY actually uses webp images, websites use a server plugin that intercepts every access to the file and loads the (cached) webp version, if one does not exist it will generate one on the fly on the first access.
So you open a jpg/png file and the server will
1. check if cached webp exists
2. if one does not exist, convert the original image to webp and copy it to the cache
3. serve the webp file data with webp mime type (even though you opened a jpg/png)
There are browser plugins that will make your browser say "I don't support webp", which will allow you to access the original file.
Also because the web is becoming more centralized, if one site or a popular content management system changes its code to use webp, it can affect thousands of communities, for ex. wordpress, wikia, etc.
this is complete bullshit, webp is a differently encoded format, not a container for jpg/png.There is a G3 strength solar flare hitting the planet right around now.

I was a bit worried since it's pretty expensive, and the last "good" chair I was recommended was pretty uncomfortable.
but turns out I worried for no reason, the chair I got is pretty comfy and extremely sturdy. The backrest can be adjusted 90 degrees and the base is stupid strong, you can set it to near flat position and sleep in it without worrying about it tipping over.

Before this was only something I encountered in all the slavic post-apocalyptic crpgs I play where you will frequently run into nutters in shitholes either threatening you with or being in fear of black magic and witchcraft, with it perhaps being played as ambiguous as to whether there is some truth to it or just mad ravings.When people say Waffles I can ONLY think of potato waffles.I am angry. Angry about crisps.
Places have stopped selling single bags of crisps nowadays, everything has started coming in at minimum a "grab bag" which is like a third the size of a party bag of whatever crisps/snacks that are meant to be poured into a bowl and picked at by everyone during a get-together.
People are fat enough, they don't need help by gradually increasing portion-size over time on every shelf.
Presumably it is somehow more cost-effective to the companies.>>425538
Today's supernatural is tomorrow's highly advanced natural philosophy :^)Replies:>>425938>>425935
See, that's to balance out bags being sold emptier and emptier so that the actual amount of chip sold remains roughly constant.>>425937
You mean they are selling less bags but with the same overall amount of produced slices of potato involved?
Because the grab bags actually do have more in them what with being notably larger.>>425935
I might be wrong but I believe there's a certain economy to it where the small size bags are more economical to manufacture. They have to fill the bags with a certain amount of gas, to prevent the chips from being broken down to powder from the rigors of transportation, the shock they received in the containers and trucks, etc. Larger bags mean much larger amounts of gas have to be used, said gases may be too expensive.
Now I could be wrong about this, but if the raw amount of chips is the same between two 50g bags and a 100g bags, then I can come up with no other legitimate reason as to why 50g bags are becoming more common. Someone would need to know the bill of materials to be able to tell for sure. Also I'd feel pretty silly if I had to try applying the square cube law to bags of potato chips to confirm this theory.
And you can still just buy a can of springles or the local supermarket (lidl, Tesco, etc) cheapo equivalent, to fill up a bowl. It might even work better since the potato chip cans have larger pieces in them, and less broken down small pieces.I love Bleach.

The universe is eternally vast and filled with countless galaxies, that we will never be able to visit.Replies:>>426200>>426198
I'm just glad they finally got that telescope up and working. It was an absurdly difficult task and they had to get everything working on first try, because the telescope is so far out that maintaining it is impossible.
The existence of so many galaxies is also incredible, but in my opinion there's so many of them that it is incomprehensible by the human mind. Every square millimetre of the night sky contains billions of galaxies each having potentially billions of star systems. The infrared images also show an order of magnitude more.
Still, it makes for extremely impressive imagery.

I was Chaplain, but I've had a lot of names a lot of places. It's been, something like 8 years since I've been here and maybe 4 since I really stopped going to imageboards with anything close to regularity. I was watching a youtube video on my break at work and saw a tumblr post from Gentleman Bones of all people being read aloud.
I wish I had some non-shitty stuff to tell people, or stuff I could say I was proud of in all that time, but mostly I've gone from scrambling to survive to leading a boring but stable life and writing smut. And I've found that I don't really like any sort of mass attention. I started writing stories to entertain my friends, posting them to my profile on various furry porn sites for them to read. And people would see them and they'd start showing up on the big thing that meant a few hundred or over a thousand people had read them and hundreds would favorite them and they'd get a handful of comment. And it would make me panic. Like a lot. So I deleted my gallery. Now I just send the stories directly to my friends. They say they like them, but some part of me thinks I could write anything with a sex scene and they'd say how good it was because that's what fetish friends do. You can't really afford to alienate anyone in small communities like that.
I got diagnosed with bipolar disorder and C-PTSD, which isn't a fun combination. I vaguely remember coming here after getting a depression diagnosis and then dropping my medication because it was giving me problems. I also remember a lot of nights spent coming on here after getting beaten into unconsciousness when I was just sixteen or seventeen, crawling from the middle of the dining room floor to my room and posting things here to cheer myself up. A lot of really cool people went here, and I was happy for how positive they'd be to me. Everyone else in my life was a responsibility, my internet friends were a joy. I haven't drawn my little avatar guy in a while, so I'm going to do that now, I think.
