They even tag genres fairly well, impressive. Using "j-core" gets the WAG OF MY FINGER though.

I guess to contribute something I'll say I've been listening to Digitally Imported (http://www.di.fm) from time to time these days. The ads are kind of annoying, but it's sometimes nice to put on a channel of a genre I don't regularly listen to, saves me from having to go hunting for artists or mixes and what not. Also just handy when I don't have a particular mix or anything I want to listen to. Been mostly listening to the various dnb channels, the goa/psytrance channel, and the hardstyle channel.

Steve Reich - Different Trains (Performed by Quatuor Diotima)
Contemporary classical, minimalism, sampling

I wish they would too because many of them are terrible on a technical level and people who don't know any better treat them as good. But I still think the good ones are fun to listen to. It's not like they're high art or something.

So as to keep the discussion together and not spam the short thoughts thread, I'm splitting this off into its separate thread.

Context: King, creator of Candy Crush Saga, has trademarked 'candy' and 'saga' and has been C&Ding other games which have those words in their titles.

King's response to complaints about them C&Ding 'The Banner Saga':

>"King has not and is not trying to stop Banner Saga from using its name. We do not have any concerns that Banner Saga is trying [to] build on our brand of our content. However, like any prudent company, we need to take all appropriate steps to protect our IP, both now and in the future," the statement reads
>"In this case, that means preserving out ability to enforce our rights in cases where other developers may try to use the Saga mark in a way which infringes our IP and rights and causes player confusion. If we had not opposed Banner Saga's trademark application, it would be much easier for real copy cats to argue that their use of 'Saga' was legitimate. This is an important issue for King because we already have a series of games where 'Saga is key to the brand which our players associate with a King game; Candy Crush Saga, Bubble Witch Saga, Pet Rescue Saga, Farm Heroes Saga and so on. All these titles have already faced substantive trademark and copyright issues with clones."

You wouldn’t be alienated and belittled by your friends and family or abandoned by your significant other for something you couldn’t control. You wouldn’t be denied coverage for any medical attention you may need because the police “couldn’t be sure you were mugged” even if there was more than enough evidence.

You wouldn’t be forced to be surrounded by people making jokes where the crime committed against you is the punchline.

Because no one is “asking” to be mugged.

If you were wearing a shirt that said “Kill me” and someone murdered you, would people say you were asking for it? No. For any other crime, no one is ever considered to have been asking for it.
>> No.40405  
The problem is that rape is treated differently. Even though it’s just as horrific a crime as being mugged or robbed, and often has far worse psychological effects in the long run, it’s treated as a fact of life and it happening is so frequently considered to be the fault of the victim. (Even though this inherently doesn’t make sense, because how can you be asking for something that is by definition a non-consensual act?)

Victims are being blamed for the actions of criminals, and that (at least for a white, heterosexual, cisgender man like yourself) would never happen in regard to any other crime. It’s inexcusable.

Because you know what? Women are not raped because of what they’re wearing, or how much they had to drink, or any other factor. Completely sober women in turtlenecks and cargo pants are raped. Women were raped in petticoats and bloomers. Rape happens because of the rapists, not the victims. Even if no woman ever showed an inch of skin or ever impaired their judgement with recreational drinking, rape would still happen.
>> No.40406  
And yet society is systematically protecting the criminals at the expense of the victims. If that happened with murderers, there would be a world-wide outcry.

The moral of the story is, stop thinking of rape as “just sex” or what have you. It’s a crime and it needs to be treated like any other crime.

"Processing has promoted software literacy within the visual arts and visual literacy within technology. Initially created to serve as a software sketchbook and to teach computer programming fundamentals within a visual context, Processing evolved into a development tool for professionals. Today, there are tens of thousands of students, artists, designers, researchers, and hobbyists who use Processing for learning, prototyping, and production."

tl;dr Processing allows creation of some nifty stuff with relative ease. Let's have some fun!

Default mode uses Java as the programming language, but there are other modes as well.

//these // lines are comments
//create integer variables x and y, which will later be used to store the x and y coordinates for draw() function.
int x;
int y;

//void functionName() to create a function. Setup is the very basic function for Processing to create a canvas to draw on.
void setup(){
//canvas resolution and renderer; OpenGL is needed for blendMode()

This is what happens when people don't kill their own meat. (I have watched my dinner slaughtered before my eyes when I was 4~6, I am an adamant meat eater.)
The documentary itself is fine from a technical perspective - the usuals, music, tone of voice, bleak caption screens to guide a narrative whether it's true or not. Add in some stuff for the sensitive folks, and bam, you have a documentary.
The main flaw of the documentary is that it has only one perspective - the human one. Everything in the film relies on human perception of animals (and eachother if you get down to it), it doesn't really try to get a conversation going between the human side to the ani-OH WAIT YOU FUCKING CANT BECAUSE THEY'RE ANIMALS
Look, if you want to apply some self-dissipating anesthetic to animals before killing them, fine, better meat, whatever. God knows it ain't right that real americans get second rate steak while the rich go to japan to have kobe. Just don't pretend animal suffering (caused by humans or not) is somehow morally offensive. At best it speaks to the character of the people committing the act, and even then gathering food/conducting tests are hardly the most despicable occupations.

Been there, went veg and went back. It certainly feels good the first years, but after some time I just didn't care anymore. I love my leather boots, wallet and other small stuff, meat tastes fucking delicious and honestly, there is so much wrong in the world that I think the suffering of animals plays a minor role by comparison. Also we're designed to eat everything. The movie knows how to invoke emotions, but doesn't lose a word about it.

>sheep stomach never empties

What does this mean?
>> No.40088  
Their digestion is really slow and they eat a lot, so they have a "second stomach" to aid the process which pretty much always contains food AFAIK. Some herbivores also have pouches that temporarily store food that they send back to the mouth for re-chewing when they're not eating fresh food, if you're familiar with the expression "chewing your cud" that's what cows do.

>Waging war against another country is a violation of national sovereignty
No, INVASION (and other 'acts of war') against a country you are not at war with is a violation of national sovereignty. Declaring war on a country is never a crime, and from that moment on acts of war are fair game. International relations may be damaged, and you may face retaliation from alliances and/or organizations as well as sanctions from alliances/organizations you are affiliated with if you have no proper casus belli, but it is not a crime. You will not be prosecuted as war criminal for declaring war even without casus belli, at least not without some string-pulling behind the scenes (being declared a terrorist, extrajudicial execution, etc).

Some modern leaders could be tried for war crimes for torturing and unnecessarily killing PoWs, and perhaps for fabricated casus belli (not sure if that's considered a war crime), but not for waging war itself.
