The last time the US armed and funded a group of Syrian rebels, they went on to form what is now ISIS, the same organization which we are trying to defeat by arming and funding a group of Syrian rebels. This country is satire.

EVERY TIME SOMEONE BRINGS UP THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA I GET SO ANGRY.

but why

Because it got burned. All of that knowledge, lost forever.



The library was destroyed over 1000’s of years ago. The library consisted of thousands of scrolls and books about mathematics, engineering, physiology, geography, blueprints, medicine, plays, & important scriptures. Thinkers from all over the Mediterranean used to come to Alexandria to study.Most of the major work of civilization up until that point was lost. If the library still survived till this day, society may have been more advanced and we would sure know more about the ancient world.

That chart is full fucking potato.

"Christians brought down the Roman Empire, the Church never tried to salvage all the knowledge it could in the early to middle Medieval  period, the Byzantine Empire never existed, and Western Europe is the only place that matters. That sounds about right."—the maker of that godforsaken chart.
We probably lost a SHITLOAD of ancient histories and commentaries which would have been invaluable when the Library of Alexdria burned. Things that would undoubtedly  change our perception of ancient Mediterranean life. But the idea of it causing a technological gap is fucking ludicrous. It had COPIES of loads of books. Books which had other COPIES spread out across the Mediterranean world. All you have to do is look at the history of the time and notice that “huh, the Romans DON’T plunge into a dark age a few decades after the Libary of Alexandria burned down” to know that it wasn’t an event significant enough to alter the path of human civilization.

Anonymous said: I get an increasing sense that all social justice today is based on defining borders for the sake of identity. Excommunication is a way of knowing other-minded people are on the other side of the street when you're protesting in favor of/against abortion rights. Boycots etc. have the same purpose. Progressives buy McDonald's, conservatives buy Chic-fil-a. At its extreme everyone just wants to know where they stand so they can live in a comfortable political stalemate.

Human tribalism

social justice as a monicker, as a platform, as an ideology, is being solidified around whats commonly known as party lines. Democrats, republicans, etc etc.

There is no humility, no sense of critical self awareness, and so on. No one is encouraged to rock the boat, in fact you are shouted down for doing so. Even if people who regard themselves as social justice activists recognize there are fuckwits who charade as SJWs, their reaction is not to lambast and confront them for the sake of objectivity, fairness, commitment to justice and consistency in their message - but grumble about it and ultimately let it persist because they fight for the same side.

It’s why an army arises to protect Zoe Quinn from abuse when she herself is implicated as an abuser and her closest friends victim blamers. No one stops to address the victim blaming, the allegedly individual who was sexually assaulted and then silenced or even acknowledge the chance for abuse because that would be taking shots on the same side.

It’s why an army arises to seek justice for the inebriated young girl abused by several football jocks in the American midwest.

But no army arises to bring justice for the 1400 young girls who were raped in Rotherham and condemn the leftist ideological social workers and politicians who refused to help them for fear it would embolden right wing pundits.

Confronting that would reveal that their notion of Social Justice is demonstrably not infallible so therefore it’s ignored.

Over 200 Dead Bodies On Mount Everest

The area above 26,000ft is called “The Death Zone” due to the atmospheric pressure. The air is so thin that recovering the dead bodies is impossible so they are left where they died.

There have been many cases where people had to leave behind some people that were still alive due to low oxygen. Sergei and Francys Arsentiev met that fate. Two climbers heard Francys screaming for help on the side of a steep cliff. She was seperated from her husband. The climbers had to leave her behind or they would have died themselves.

Some were lucky enough to die in their sleep, while others suffered injuries from falls and died slowly from hypothermia.

So did they….

Anonymous said: Can you elaborate on concept artist not expanding on groundwork? Do you mean that it lacks some kind of world-building/layout to the things they create?

diarrheaworldstarhiphop:

concept artist are like the automatons of the creative industry. The creative industry demands record speed in churning out images for tight production schedules. The concept artists are unparalleled masters at delivery. But in order to meet such demands on time, they draw inspiration for their work from a tiny pool of mental imagery. To expand on that mental imagery involves time doing an outrageous amount of research and practice. Their practice is the same things, over and over again to hone the speed at which they produce it.

When I got my foot in the door to be a concept artist for the videogames industry, landed my first job, I quickly saw that for developers above the indie level, some studios with thousands of employees rely on literally one or a handful of concept artists if they don’t farm the work out to collectives or the same dozen or so freelancers. My employer was also trying to push me to produce like those on conceptart.org do. That’s when I made my exit.

Ever wonder how the aliens in all contemporary science fiction movies look the fucking same and come out of the same fucking space ships? Or look at the environments of Guild Wars 2.

It’s a whole bunch of shit thrown together because it looks cool but otherwise has no sense of context or depth to it in spite of the lore. It looks and feels like expediency. The load screens display concept art that’s more a Magic Eye Puzzle with photos of vaulted arches photoshopped and smeared in than a rendering of a weighted environment. So the final product also looks and feels like expediency. It’s fucking spectacular to look at but has the depth and immersion of a Bob Ross painting.

Actually.

Concept artists are digital Bob Ross’s

Replace the happy little bush with amorphous crystalline looking space car and the sweeping mountain with generic Scottish highland castle insert.

I’m not saying all concept artists are trash but this is the model from which they work from. Speed over quality.
