Been a while since we had us a good roll call. I'm sure some old trips lurk here, would be nice to hear if they're still alive.

to keep things interesting, it would be great to have a thread for all the old copypasta. Like shooting girl scouts delivering cookies, Peter Cottontail "get your fucking weapon if you don't want to die" Easter pasta, any of the old Opie stuff whatever it includes.

I got a couple I'll be posting, feel free to join in.

I can dig it. Orbs/those sort of photo anomalies never really do it for me just because its fairly easy to debunk. Now video footage of orbs doing shit that bugs and dust dont do I am ok with.

But my wife, myself, and a few of my friends into the ghosty stuff think >>111273 this picture is fanfuckingtastic. If you get a chance to go back to that place, do some EVPs in that building. Or if you have a ghost box, use that.

Have a cool ghost box story from when my little family evacuated due to harvey. Ended up in my moms vacation home at canyon lake (new braunsfuls tx, can see the damn from her back porch).

First night with a marine friend and his wife and my wife.

I wish that the structure was still there. The state of South Carolina, in their infinite wisdom, knocked down that structure and built a new structure that someone lives in now, in order to dissuade folks from vandalizing the place. I would love to talk to the person that lives there to find out if they've experienced or seen shit that they can't explain.

I already have a big ol' list, and the platforms we're considering already do some things, but I want to hear your wildest imageboard fantasies.

I'm not really going to be addressing whether or not they're feasible here, but I am reading everything.

Before the butthurt Nazi Aryans take the bait, the OP is of King Charles II (aka Carlos II) of Spain, and an obvious example of inbreeding.
By the time of Charles's birth there had been many generations of inbreeding within the Spanish royal house; his physical and mental disabilities are widely attributed to this inbreeding. The practice of first-cousin and uncle-niece marriages was common among 17th-century European nobility, intended to preserve prosperous families' properties, but this snobbish practice blew up in their faces with Charles II's deformity and stupidity. Charles II was known as "the Bewitched" (el Hechizado) as he was noted for his extensive physical, intellectual, and emotional disabilities and his consequent ineffectual rule. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_II_of_Spain

In our class of 100, 35 have already quit. A guy in his 40s stood up during morning pt and yelled "I'm too old for this shit" and walked out. Everyone thought it was hilarious, the DI thought it was funny too and made the rest of us do monkeyfuckers

I'm not sure what you're blabbering about.

Your opchan email address is not secret. It can be crawled, guessed or gotten from people who have previously mailed you. It doesn't need to be "us" to have tried to get in, plenty of non-humans trawl the web for nothing else these days. Even if it was someone from this site, I'm not sure what you hope to get from posting your actions.

If opchan staff wanted to access your email, the Google Apps admins would just have reset your password (because we manage the domain after all). This has never been a secret, and as such I'd be extremely surprised if anyone with an opchan email would even consider using it for anything secret or sensitive. And it's friggin' Google to boot.

Anyone here mine crypto-coins?

Got started last month. Figured I would give it a try as I never turn off my gaming rig (well...piss poor gaming rig...see specs at end) and with classes I find myself not really gaming.

Electricity in my neck of the woods is ~$0.10 a kwhr. If the price of the coin I am mining doesn't go up I can net maybe $40-70 profit over a year. Probably closer to $40 as my DSL connection is shit and there is no other option besides satellite in my neck of the woods (That might even go away. The phone company here has a county government protected monopoly that they insist is not a monopoly but a CoOp...). I don't know if I care if I make a real profit though. Hell I'm thinking of building a dedicated GPU mining rig at, most likely, a net loss, sometime next year.

I'm not going to shill what I am mining but would like to know if any of you all are mining as well. If you would like to shill your coin feel free.

Specs:
AMD X4 880k (FM2+)
mini-itx mobo
16gb DDR3
Zotac 1060 3gb "mini" w/memory overclock

Bah! Why not mine for something useful? Like molybdenum (used in the production of high-strength superalloys) or rare earths like yttrium (used in superconductors and atomic batteries). The mining of rare-earth minerals was at one time dominated by the United States, but the People's Republic of China has since come to dominate the market. China's rare earth industry makes up 97 percent of rare mineral trade worldwide and if they force an embargo, the industrial nations would be burdened by the great needs of these minerals.

We do not currently (acknowledged) have railgun launched Mach 6 ramjet drones or space lasers to fight on the battlefield, but what seems to be getting the job done (killing peasant morons in the Middle East with scant air defenses) on a budget is the Reaper drone. The F-35 was reported to replace CAS-smashers like the venerable A-10 Warthog, but this was a fantasy and the service life was further extended (even though many need lots of maintenance like new wings and fixing fuselage cracks) to around 2022. The A-10 may well be replaced by drones...
Reaper Drones: The New Close Air Support Weapon May 10, 2017 https://breakingdefense.com/2017/05/reaper-drones-the-new-close-air-support-weapon/
The Reaper has grown into a key Close Air Support (CAS) tool for the US military and should not be viewed primarily as an Intelligence, Surveillance, & Reconnaissance (ISR) asset. ...Another factor to take into account with so-called fast-mover aircraft like F-16s, F-18s, B-1s, B-2s and F-15s is that the enemy can hear them coming. The enemy often scatters when they hear the roar of an approaching fighter or bomber, which can be extremely useful. With an MQ-9, “they don’t know we’re there.” That can be useful if the goal of a mission is to kill particular personnel or to wipe out an enemy position — less so if the goal is to scare them off without striking, as was often the case in Afghanistan because of restrictive rules of engagement.
In Libya, more than 70 percent of the Reaper strikes were “danger-close” CAS missions, where exquisitely accurate targeting and the lowest amount of collateral damage possible were key. Hellfire missiles, originally designed to be used by attack helicopters, have smaller warheads than bombs and can be carefully guided during a strike to avoid destroying a building.
“We dropped 100s of Hellfires and handed that city back to the Libyans intact because we were using highly accurate weapons,” Col. Joe said. Most important, not a single civilian casualty caused by a Reaper strike was reported during the Sirte operations.
The larger lesson from that operation may be a new approach to working with local forces against terrorists and more organized groups. “We took an indigenous ground force we supported and we enabled them to take back land from our common enemy of ISIS,” the 432 commander says. “In many ways, it was the coming out party of the MQ-9 in urban CAS and our ability to go after an embedded enemy danger close.”
How close were the enemy and friendly forces? “We had shots as close as 25 meters,” Col. Joe says. One effect of the Reaper’s persistence — its ability to stay over one area for up to 20 hours — was the sense of protection it offered to friendly forces on the ground. “We took MQ-9s and we watched and protected the indigenous forces. If ISIS m

The thing people forget when they start talking about drones replacing piloted aircraft has nothing to do with technology or physiology or even tactics. It's a matter of ethics. It's going to take a LOT longer for us as a species to be comfortable with the idea of an AI willfully taking a human life. If we're smart that should never happen.

To which a drone proponent would say "they're still piloted by humans, just far away. This removes the ethical issue, and it removes the pilots from harm's way, it also means the aircraft magically becomes better".

If you're only thinking about fighting rebels in mountains, then you might be right on some accounts. However, if you want that same military to be able to contend with foreign nations, it is dangerously wrong. In a war with a peer nation, the communications systems those drones use will be removed from use by one means or another. So then you're stuck with weapons you can't use, unless of course you're willing to give them control over killing a human being.

So not only are drones a dangerous solution to problems that don't exist, they can increase the likelihood we give the power to kill over to a machine running cold logical code. Code written to target whomever the controller programmed last.

Or we could continue to design manned aircraft because we're at a limitation of material science right now, and methods of propulsion. Human pilots aren't really holding aircraft design back. Jets wouldn't magically get faster, the electronics package required for complex drones is quite large. Humans aren't holding back aircraft like discovery channel shows might make you believe. Maneuverability being capped at ~9Gs has very little to do with human pilots now. Flightsuits have also advanced in the last 40 years, pilots can comfortably handle 9Gs for HOURS, and 11g for a few minutes, in the right suit. There's stuff in development that could push humans past 15g sustained (mostly centered around spaceflight, but technologies can still be applied).

It will be far easier to engineer weapon systems that overcome the limitations in material science, (who knew trying to get materials to maintain their perfect positioning while rapidly accelerating in various directions is hard). This is why there's the renewed interest in turreted defensive weapon systems on aircraft. It's much cheaper to make a 9G fighter that will survive for 15 years before needing service life extension programs, put a human pilot in it, put 360* defensive weapons on it, and then blame any mistakes on the human pilot if the targets turn out to be children. It's a lot easier for politicians to avoid questions if they already have a fall guy in place. Drones get swept away, or become AI-driven. It's a lot harder to avoid blame if it was literally just carrying out orders

Simply put don't. You are not required to and vets typically do not want you to.

It is a catch 22.

You thank me, and the only show reel that plays in my head is all of the FUBAR things that went down. Things that only make me lament that I am no longer there doing the deal.

If you thank me, I will be cordial and say something like "no problem" and think that you are a tool for not suiting up yourself.

generating blowback terrorism keeps the military industrial complex in business and the federal government deep in debt which in turn keeps the american citizens overtaxed and that impoverishment gives people less incentive to work on their own behalf.
thank you to all the soldiers for volunteering to be tools
its all fine for them, they get their pension, lifetime free healthcare and hiring preference for other taxpayer funded government jobs which pay more for less risk once they've done their turn in the military. what a bunch of selfless saints, i really feel strongly that i owe them something more than they're already getting.
if anyone protests the system less than politely these same soldiers are all ready to turn their guns on them too.
