In Sudan fights continue, it seems largely thanks to the Rapid Support Forces cease-fire violations. Millions of people is getting displaced, guess where will they end up? Now that the situation is Syria starts to get normalized and people from refugee camps can return. I wonder on who's payroll on RSF is.
In Syria the situation is much the same. Except now Israel and the Hezbollah fights over the Palestinians. The first one don't need those people, just the land under their feet, the second one just wants to kill Jews.
On the Ukraine the AFU's counteroffensive is roaring. I cannot hear it due to the liveuamap only showing Russian action. But at least the Deepstate map shows nothing as well. How will they be able to tell people that this much promised offensive is on? Well I saw one article writing about the "tactical encirclement of Bakhmut, now the Russians are in trouble". Anywhere where the front is not perfectly straight one can claim there is an encirclement, but okay. Whatabout Avdiivka? Here's a cool article from Reuters contemplating about the capture of Bakhmut. https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/how-important-is-claimed-capture-by-russias-wagner-group-ukraines-bakhmut-2023-05-20/ Don't worry they establish right at the beginning U.S. Pentagon chief Lloyd Austin and NATO alliance head Jens Stoltenberg, and all the western experts say it's nothingburger. And they are right in a way, the high ground at Chasiv Yar and the ridge which separates Bakhmut from the chain of towns with Kramatorsk and Sloviansk are more important. But since god knows how many Ukrainian fighters were torn into pieces (I guesstimate it between 25K and 100K, maybe I'll make a post about how I reached this) Bakhmut was a very important battle.
>>50303 I dunno about Prigo. He talks lotta bs. Probably he knows it well that everything what he says will be printed, so he just throws out whatever comes to his mind.
The battle went on for about 9 months. I'm not sure about the start, Wikipee says 2022 August 1st, the first screenshots of the livemap I made are from 3rd and 7th, and the situation is picrel, and just at Sept. ~15th when they reached the outskirt of Bakhmut (picrel #3). On average the minimum that both side lost is 100/day. One question is this "loss" includes KIA, MIA, WIA, POW? Here is Mediazona again: https://en.zona.media/article/2022/05/11/casualties_eng They count deaths which can be verified from various sources. According to this, PMCs lost ~1500 and recruited prisoners ~4000 since the start of the war. Lost as dead. So even if they can't verify half, that is only 3000+8000. Way below what Prigo says. And way way below what Western "experts" say.
>>50307 So. My first impressions: - DPA (uh i switched up two words): hard to listen (especially Slavic place names), he has wider range of topics on his main channel; - WU: kinda shallow, but perhaps it's just the lack of hapenings and info these days; - NWE: not bad. One of these - sadly don't remember which, I dont care that much to look up - said: all these fucking maps, it would be nice if Ukrainians wouldn't call their own attacks as Russian attack (referring to all the red assault signs on the map). Heh. - DD: he is very much Ukrainian to the point where he is willing to say outright lies like Hungary does not give humanitarian aid either - which makes me think what untruth are also told. This doesn't sit well with me. On the plus side he does make good points sometimes, and is quick to call out the other side's bs. He is motivated. One more good thing, since it's his mother tongue he reads and translates fluently everything right from any cyrillic - other channels struggle kek.
Anões, eu tive a oportunidade (assim como todos tem ou tiveram eu acredito) de ter encontrado a alma gêmea; mas como a vida é assim por causa de alguns parentes eles fizeram de tudo pra nós n ficarmos juntos (me deram um EAD pra fazer) e ela teve q ir pra uma faculdade longe; minha pergunta é, como lido com isso? tento ir pra igreja mas a fé tira o meu espírito de guerra e me deixa muito pacífico e eu preciso revidar com quem fez isso. queria que ao menos em uma próxima vida isso desse certo sem ninguém atrapalhar (se eu for pra igreja, eles quer que eu batizo, se eu batizo eles quer que eu prego a palavra) vocês já passaram por algo semelhante, por favor eu preciso de um amparo, é algo que só temos uma vez na vida; tem hora que dá vontade de morrer pra na próxima vida dá certo

I just realised something... something spooky as fuck.
You know how sumo is derived from some ancient rituals? How it was performed in shrines, to appease the kami, to ensure prosperity? It was only later professionalised, and is now performed on a national level by salaried wrestlers, but there are still many religious elements, from how the ring is consecrated by a priest before each tournament, yokozuna entering the ring with that big white rope around his belt, to wrestlers actually throwing salt into the ring before each bout as a means of consecration. It is a deeply religious ritual, somehow performed to appease the kami for the entire nation of Japan. Kinda like how the ancient Olympic Games were performed on temple grounds, and were a form of vitalist worship of Greek gods.
You know when's the last time sumo wasn't performed as scheduled? March 2011. The March of the earthquake and tsunami that rekt Japan. But guess what? The tournament was cancelled a month before. Because of some match-fixing scandal. Yep, that's right. And the earthquake happened 2 days before the tournament was scheduled.
The earthquake happened because the sumo ritual wasn't performed. Because the kami weren't appeased. They were pissed and caused the earthquake as a warning.
At the top of the banzuke, both Terunofuji and Takakeisho are recovering from injury, both are in risk of re-injury, which could force Teru to retire, and Takakeisho to lose his ozeki title. He also needs to perform well due to his kadoban status. It could happen there will be no ozekis after this basho. BUT, there is Kiribayama, with a 11-4 and 12-3 wins on the ozeki run, if he is able to pull 10 wins he will be promoted!
What's other interesting tidbits? Wakamotoharu is now above in the rankings of his brother Wakatakakage. Midorifuji is at #1 Maegeshira. The tiny man performs well. But he's gonna get harder opponents now. Kinbozan is at #5, he is new to Makuuchi, and upcoming talent. Oho is at the end of the list. Asanoyama is back in Makuuchi, and probably will gain many wins.
In Juryo Tochinoshin is still hanging on. It would be worth to pay attention to Ochiai, if he can continue with good performance. There is Roga and Enho close to the top.
Juryo Both Ochiai and Gonoyama took a point home. Head to head.
Makuuchi Mitoryu vs. Takarafuji - long struggle and torinaoshi! Then Takarafuji did short job. I guess Mitoryu got tired. Oho vs. Onosho - Oho won! His 8th win. Takanosho isn't an easy opponent, but I think he is injured or under the weather or something. Hiradoumi really fights in good spirit whole basho. He would deserve that kachi-koshi, I hope he can win one more. Ryuden got outed again. Not pulling a good form. Tobizaru vs. Ura - What a BOUT! It was their version of deadlock. A very active and intense deadlock. Spectacular. Takayas' vs. Midorifuji - The Bear had to miss most matches, yesterday he was back, and won. Now the tiny one finished the match quick. When Takayas changed hands he was pushed out of balance and out of the dohyo. Daieisho vs. Asanoyama - Wow Daieisho! Great show! Teru will have a hard job when they face. Asa still at 10-2. Hokuseiho vs. Hoshoryu - Hokuseiho weighing on, but Hoshoryu pulled out from the hug and made him lose footing. As the Big Lad turned to side, and back, he really just gave up and walked out. THis was their first bout. Kiribayama vs. Takakeisho - K is on ozeki run at 9-2 at the beginning of the bout. He grabbed Takakeisho and got that 10th win! He probably is now ozeki, well by next tournament. But seeing one more win would be cool. He has 3 more days to pull that feat. Terunofuji vs. Wakatakakage - Wtage lost to Teru twice, one was the bout with the rearranging. I like his attitude, he is humble, still a good rikishi. And he was on the offense from the start, till his fall. Teru won but he also had to step/fall from the dohyo, seemed hard on his knees. I hope he is ok. 11 wins, and on top of the list.
Juryo First bout, Kawazoe did good. He is also a tiny guy, bit heavier than Enho, from Makushita division. From Miyagino stable. Atamifuji 11-2. Keeps up with Gonoyama and Ochiai. Haha, Akua took Terutsuyoshi's antics on, throwing salt high. Not that large amount, but still, a good handful. Roga got his 8th. Oshoma vs Shimanoumi - breddy gud bout, great struggle. Latter won, 8th win. Tohakuryu got henkad badly by Hideonumi. Or well, depending. Azumaryu started out with a henka, then held up well, but lost in the end. His 11th loss. Ochiai vs. Shonannoumi. Ochiai failed the first tachi-ai, but won the bout. At the end was funky, because Shonannoumi thought he already lost, but he wasn't out, so Ochi had to push him, and he fell hard. He might have felt it unnecessary, although it had to happen. 12-1! Gonoyama vs. Shimazuumi. Gonoyama fell. Onto Shumazuumi. 12-1!
Makuuchi Aoiyama vs Oho. Oho won his 9th against the big guy. Well Oho also big, but yeah. Takayas is still injured. Not sure why he returned. Maybe finishing in the dohyo expands his career.
Juryo Started out with some rikishis visiting from Makushita. Yuma had a quick but intereting bout, right after tachi-ai he had his chance. Tsushimanada could hold himself, and turned the tables quick. Shishi is a Ukrainian fella, as "Westerners" he is a big lad 192cm tall. Has weight too, especially compared to his opponent Tokihayate. He won 6-1. I assume he starts in Juryo next time. Third is Ryuo, at Makushita #3, but had 1-6 balance. He lost again. Daiamami is big and has routine. Important bouts: Atamifuji vs. Chiyosakae. The latter ain't too skillful, and Atami got his 13th win! Had a chance for yusho depending on two other fights. Oshoma vs. Ochiai. Latter starting from 13-1 and adding one more to that. 14! Atamifuji is out of the race (13 wins are still nice), and Gonoyama has to score one to challange Ochi in playoff. Gonoyama vs Kitanowaka. Big henka done by Kitanowaka, and then Gonoyama saved the match twice more! Then pushed out Kitano from the dohyo. Playoff! Gonoyama vs Ochiai. They faced each other earlier, the former taking the point home. Short relentless pushy-pushy offense on behalf of Gonoyama decided the outcome. He won, Juryo yusho is his.
Makuuchi In this division the yusho was decided yesterday when yokozuna Terunofuji beat sekiwake Kiribayama in a lengthy bout. It was quite good, Kiribayama avoided getting hugged, but Teru waited out his chance patiently.
Justice Minister Moro resigned. He is immensely popular and was doing a good job. There have been high-profile arrests and in 2019 the number of murders dropped by 10 thousand compared to the previous year, a decrease of a fifth. This is a result of many factors: in the Northeast cooperation among cartels reduced violence, but the reduction happpened in other states. Legislation wasn't a factor as there was next to no real change in this regard. He retains much prestige despite the scandal with his leaks, eternal hate from the left due to being Lula's nemesis and repeated disempowerment of the anti-corruption struggle by Congress and the Supreme Court. What caused this was Bolsonaro's elimination of Federal Police director Maurício Valeixo, who had been picked by Moro. In his final address he noted that: -There was no legitimate reason for this as he had been effective in his post -This was a violation of the promise Bolsonaro made upon naming him Minister, that he'd have freedom to handle subordinates -Bolsonaro also intends to replace a subordinate of the director, the Rio de Janeiro superintendent, and possibly other superintendents, which goes against his spirit of giving autonomy to subordinates -A replacement now would create confusion and harm the Federal Police's functioning -Bolsonaro personally told him this was a political choice
Why political? He did not say this straight, but what everyone says is that it was to protect Bolsonaro's sons from investigation, and hence why the Rio de Janeiro superintendent is also involved. Their corruption accusations are petty for Brazilian standards but what's bigger are accusations they might be tied to militias. As always Bolsonaro's sons are his priority. This behavior doesn't come out of nowhere as he has few contacts in Brasília, having lived his career in the sidelines, and many reasons to be distrustful. Moro isn't someone he has a reason to distrust but his sons still came first.
Turks will decide tomorrow if they want The Sultan for another 5 years, or this Kilicdaroglu guy, or some other, less likely candidate. And they also decide the fate of 600 seats in the legislation. Do we still have all the things up Turkbernd (Allah smile on him) wrote about Turkish politics on the board? Anyway the Prez is both the head of state and the head of government, since the position of the PM was abolished (2017). Quite strong position.
Erdog is still rocking with AKP, let's call it conservative. Kilicdaroglu is the candidate for CHP which supposed to be Kemalist (established by him) and social-democrat. But I remember in Turkey it's not that simple. The politics is also riddle with paranoia and conspiracies (and theories of). They had a shit year last year, inflation and the earthquake shook the country. They are considerable factor in the Ukrainian war, in Syria and the migration issue. They are NATO country but has a working relationship with Russia. Transit country along the Belt and Road road. They also has Central Asia in their sight, Pan-Turanism ftw, supporters of Azerbaijan. At least under Erdog. Not sure what can be expected from each side.
Found this in HistoryLegends video. He does not mention where he gets this. I assume at least partially he used militaryland's deployment map. If I were him I also have my own notes gathered during the whole length of the battle from anywhere basically, all the tidbits appearing in whatever news, be it a telegram channel or a large news site. But are there other sources, at least one that gives an approximate list like militaryland?
>>50292 Also great quote from first article: >Sweden's main purpose is to provide Ukraine with fighter jets for battlefield combat testing and to drag Russia into a protracted war. They know Ukraine can't win. They don't want Ukraine win. They want the war the drag on, they just try to tire out Russia, like in Afghanistan. The 12 million Afghan payed dearly. But it was chiefly an asymmetric war. This one in Ukraine is a straight up meatgrinder. Casualties on Ukrainian side is highly downplayed, we speculated about this occasionally. And it's not just about the dead - both military and civilian. It's about the maimed, and all who fled the country too.
>>50293 This is what this whole war is about. The US, after being bogged down for decades in failed wars, they decided its a better strategy to get their competitors trapped in costly wars. So now they are using ukrainians as usefull idiots/cannon fodder against russia. The same reason the US is constantly provoking China.

Last year I found out there's native Linux version of the Baldur's Gate Enhanced Editions. They are working well but I don't think I'll ever finish a playthrough again. Back then I finished original BG, and BG2, but not the Throne of Bhaal expansion. Damn long games. Enhanced Edition makes it possible to play this classic DnD based crpg on modern steel, fixes bugs, changes some rules, adds new NPCs with quests, new items, two new expansions (The Black Pits - arena fight generator?, and Siege of Dragonspear - which is a module for the original story, taking part between BG1 and BG2). It seems okay all in all.
>>50249 >Neegan steels food And chicks, guns, and ammo, as Walking Deda documented.
>>50250 >>50251 Not bad at all. They also have a third type, besides the city building, and the management of individuals: managing a community. (Other spinoffs like simfarm and such were made by them?)
>>50253 Kinda melancholic. You need to let go of the kot.
Wanna watch The Longest Yard, the original Burt Reynolds movie. I only see two remakes, the Mean Machine with Vinnie Jones, and the Adam Sandler comedy from 2005. Probably the only good Adam Sandler movie. It's greatest selling point is the catchy tunes played in the background and the supporting cast. Judging by the screenshots it follows the original story quite tightly. The Mean Machine is adapted to the circumstances of a Bri'is prison and normal football. It was entertaining too. One more remake was made, and Egyptian one: Captain Masr in 2015. Not sure if it's available anywhere, or has any English dubs or subs. Also features normal football.
Watched Master of Disguise. Did not like it. It is one of the lowest rated movies on Rotten Tomatoes IIRC
Then I watched the Amazing Bulk. It was so laughably bad. But the ending really made me laugh though. Just watch it without any spoilers, because the last minutes of the film are crazy XD Randum. Just watch it and then come back to this post bernds
So we watched The Raid Redemption yesterday. Apparently quite a few guests have seen it and had very positive opinion about it. It is a good action movie. I did not like the initial shooting part.
>>50198 >It is one of the lowest rated movies >Did not like it. Unexpexted turn of events... >Amazing Bulk I might hit that up. I dl'd some new fantasy movie, it's DnD based. I guess it was inevitable at this point they make a movie in that setting. Wait DnD isn't a setting. Anyway the woke must love it like Shadowrun due to all the diversity and the morals they can teach based on that.

If there's money to be made out of such films, you know they'll keep doing them

What are bernd's opinions on the "Evil devouring mother" archetype? It's a common theme in movies, stories, short novels, fairy tales, and films.
And it's not just something that appears in films and movies. I've seen and lived with these type of people during the years I've been alive. Maybe all of these stories and fairy tales are based on real people and real life experiences that the author has been through.
Here's a good example of the archetype, Full Metal Alchemist. Main villain is literally every thing related to the archetype.
>>50255 I was thrown for a minute but you are talking about Full Metal Alchemist the anime, not the manga or Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood.
I never saw that one so I had never heard of her, it turns out she isn't actually part of the manga and is original to the earlier anime. Which makes sense.
Full Metal Alchemist was made before the manga was finished so they ran out of material and had to make things up to finish it. Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood was made afterwards and is faithful to the manga and the one I watched, I think most people recommend watching Brotherhood as well, it's also one of the highest rated anime on MAL.
>>50254 >collection of fairy tales Awesome. Thanks Bernd. These day I read a MAGUS novel, after I might pick some tales, am actually curious.
>>50255 >Evil devouring mother archetype I can't recall any. I'm thinking in liek Greek mythology terms at the moment tho. But I have to read what you posted first and get familiar with Wild Metal Country Full Metal Alchemist a bit. Because I have no idea about that.
>>50255 Okay, I skimmed through the screenshots. Hera comes to mind, the jealous wife who despises everyone Zeus is willing to give his male attention to. She wields great power and knowledge, and also has a gentle side given the circumstances. That poster also mentions Jung, this reminded me of a book I came across during all my readings by Jean Shinoda Bloen who apparently was a Jungian psychiatrist: Goddesses in Everywoman: A New Psychology of Women She describes several archetypes of female behaviour patterns, and put them on the basis of Goddesses in Greek mythology. One of them ofc is Hera. I'll try to look this up.

This thread is for the discussion of the riots/strikes/events/etc... that are happening in catalonia right now.
-What happened today (I'll do later a re-cap of what happened before and also what is happening now) Today I went to the students strike in Barcelona, luckly nothing happened and the cops stayed calm, we walked all together for a kilometer or so and then we ate lunch. Tomorrow is the general strike so probably that's when I'll be able to post more interesting first-hand news.

>>50235 Generally in Europe noone has balls for anything, and they also have to conform to the rule: "no border changes ever". This rule makes it possible to stood up against Russia too. It's easy for me to believe that lotsa compatriots of yours are disappointed. Have to keep in mind that things don't keep for ever, circumstances will change. Have to keep working towards the goal, and pass the will on to the next generation.
I saw some Mexican asking for gulyás recipe on Kohl and because I don't really want to start posting there beside the World Cup I decided to reupload the gulyás cooking as the other thread is "File not found" as well. So here's with original text.
Cooking with Bernd: gulyás
I was planning to post a good gulyás cooking since day one but somehow the occasion eluded me until now. I know a Hungarobernd did this on KC main but it was regular "cooking in the kitchen" type of thread and not "over open fire in bogrács" (traditional Hungarian pot). I couldn't do this live for technical reasons but it will be fine this way too.
Pic #1 Ingredients: meat (little bit over half a kilo, it's pork, not beef), taters (by volume I used about the double of the meat dunno their weight), onions, tomato, paprikas, black pepper in the mill, dried ground paprika in the jar with the red lid, salt in the middle, and the white wax paper on the right covers the salo (fatback). You can also see my Mora for cutting needs and a bearly visible peace from a wooden spoon behind the meat and the potato, the masterpiece of my carving art, used for stir the food in the bogrács. The taters are leftovers from winter, wizened but fine for our purpose. Some of the onions and the paprikas are also leftovers I utilized.
Pic #2 The initial setup. Two quarter logs at the sides and a nest in the middle for the fire itself also aligned toward the usual main direction of the wind. The rocks are there for a little draft control. Tripod to hang the bogrács.
Pic #3 Lighted a handful of dry grass, placed in the middle of the nest, then a large handful of dry twigs above, and sticks across the log above all. As these sticks burn in the middle they broke after a while and fall into the nest. The heat from the nest lights up the inside faces of the logs. The heat is very concentrated toward the nest. The cooking is going above the nest, and it really doesn't need much flames. The smoldering logs pumping up lotsa heat, only some sticks are needed to be placed inside the nest time to times. Also when a log burns through, a new can be placed there. I had several prepared.
Video relevant: https://invidious.snopyta.org/watch?v=69dDpKmxJcM Old telly broadcast for kids. Prof doing experiments for kids, practical demonstrations from the field of physics. At 2:25:30 he runs a rocket on a wire, propelled by a carbonic acid cartridge. The intro for it starts a bit earlier, but it's in Hungarian.
Eating walnut we canned in 2015. Gonna make a photo probably tomorrow. These are young green walnuts (the shell is still soft) put into sugary syrup. I think rum flavor was also used. It should be real rum. We never make these, but that year we thought why not. We had two jars, and I know I opened one some years ago, but I think that has to be discarded I don't remember now. Now this one is bretty gud.

But Brbernd posts about as often as you, about on weekly basis maybe. It's the Ameriball/Australian in the Syria thread, and me blogging. Me on daily basis. Sometimes BO posts one, probably when logs in. Everyone else left.
>>50094 Yes. We have Easter ham. It's smoked, then at home everyone cooks it, sometimes with other ingredients (other meatstuff), sometimes whole eggs in shells, sometimes the cooking water is used for other soups such as bean. In Hungarian Easter = Húsvét, literally means The Take of Meat, since it was the end of the 40 days great fast (Lent, Quadragesima), when they had to suspend the consumption of meat.
