I've been reading about the PKK and Syria a lot, and a name that keeps coming up is Murray Bookchin. Apparently the PKK's leader adopted Bookchin's philosophy, and it forms the basis for the PKK's current political strategy. Even BBC filmmaker Adam Curtis is speculating that his ideas might have a significant presence over the coming decades. Thoughts?

Masculinity and femininity are both poor substitutes for adult responsibility.

That's what being a man/woman is about. Being a responsible. Being able to be trusted.

Without that, masculinity and femininity just seem like juvenile distinctions between two types of people I'd nothing to do with (the distinction being one is a bit hairier than the other?)

Id always known that the Opchan mail account I got years back was a liability. That sooner or later, whether it was Serv it someone else, will try to access these linked accounts.

Got a failed sign in attempt a little while back from Covington, KY, on an old account havent used in years. I know its one of you. I know it is because no one would otherwise even know that account existed. Only someone who had a list of accounts linked to opchan would have seen that account.

Its too late, ive burnt it to the ground fucker; theres nothing left to see.

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.

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.

Not going to post pics but I was a thief class adventurer, and my wife was a mimic. She made a chest out of a cardboard box (and she is tiny enough to be able to get entirely inside and close the lid). The lid is the best part, in my opinion, since she used strips of cardboard like planks to construct it.

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.
