does anyone else get nervous when it's windy out?

I don't mind rain or snow, but something about pure wind just makes me really uncomfortable. today has been a windy day.

Snowbell!MbICrazyYs 41804326


Hmm... Well then it could be the effect of the wind itself on your person, the wind in your ears reducing your ability to hear ambient noises and causing anxiety that way. Or it could be the accompanying change in air pressure doing it as infrasound is known to do.
Your hindbrain is quite unintelligent and prefers to react to any perceived change in environment by upping stress levels, just in the off-chance there's a small army of bears sneaking up behind you.

Chewy [Element Of Fortitude]!MUSIC.FbVY 41804329


but the thing is, it makes me nervous even when I'm not outside feeling it. I can be sitting in my living room, and if I'm hearing the wind blow, or seeing the tree branches in my yard shake out the window, that's when I start to not feel good.

it's really weird, it's not like it puts me in an unsafe scenario, and I don't recall any specific event regarding wind or storms that traumatized me personally or something.

Snowbell!MbICrazyYs 41804360


Just the sight and the sound would be enough simply because it's out of the ordinary. You've heard of course of "trigger warnings" warning people ahead of time so talk of a sensitive subject doesn't trigger their PTSD. These have their place of course but as usual the internet got carried away with it to the point of ridicule. See the thing about such triggers is that they can be extremely random, anything that has even the vaguest mnemonic connection to a traumatic incident can cause it, it doesn't even have to be a single thing thing, could be a combination of things. It's all quite tricky and hard to nail down.
In your case, assuming there's no other personal trauma that's getting triggered by the sights and sounds it's enough that something is happening and that's all your hindbrain needs to start thinking the enemies are at the gates. We today don't have much reason to concern ourselves about storms but that's a very recent development, even a fairly minor thunderstorm could spell disaster for our ancestors and physically and mentally nothing has changed between us and them.
When you find yourself feeling like that best thing to do would be to chuckle about it, turn up your TV or music or whatever and put it out of your mind.

Finished the New Dominion Tank Police. Definitely preferred the first set of OVAs which were better at having fun at their police state setting's expense and concluded like the Starship Troopers movie, with the bright eyed idealist with doubts about the fairness of our system becomes just another glass eyed storm trooper.

I started watching Space Runaway Ideon. It's the anime the creator of Gundam did right after finishing MSG in '80. I'm not sure if I'm committed to watching the whole thing, but its fun to watch some super robot from time to time.

I have a group of normies that I play DND and watch anime with. Right now we're a bit stalled because of life, and haven't been able to keep up with the schedule. Because of this I haven't been able to keep up with the new stuff coming out. Only thing I've been watching on my own is Dragonball Super.

Right now we're watching: Steins;Gate, Drifters, Garden of Sinners, Thunderbolt Fantasy, and the Bakamonagatori series.
We're gonna we working on that for a while so I don't know when I'm going to get into the new stuff.

I never thought id agree with Admiral on anything, but there it is lol.

Gotta agree, the original OVA's were much more fun, NDTP played it too seriously except for a couple of scenes like with captain Briton(Brenton/Briton) going undercover and the bit in the flour warehouse. Back in the old days of Animu (When i actually was into it) i loved rewatching Dominion :)

Discussing possible changes to /oat/ Fen!!Shining Armor ## Mod 41795506[View][Last 50 Posts]

This thread is for the purposes of suggesting and discussing changes to /oat/'s content and mod policy towards the board.
The intial proposal from staff is in short:

>/oat/ - All content not covered by /pony/, /chat/ and /rp/. Stricter standards of civility here then /chat/.

What the first half of this means is that /oat/ will continue to be a general purpose catch-all and threads will not be moved to a different board with the exception of political threads being moved to /chat/, or threads which break site rules.

The second half regarding civility is slightly more complicated and definitely needs more discussion from the community.
Currently, /site/ has a specific rule regarding civility which is as follows

>Use ad hominem arguments, do not contribute to the discussion at hand or do so in a belligerent manner and you will be warned and subsequently recieve a ban from posting on /site/

Occasional problems regarding enforcement aside, this ruling has worked reasonably well for /site/ in comparison to /site/'s prior conduct.
As it doesnt exactly fit for the /oat/ community, simply copy/pasting the rule would probably be a bad idea. Which is why we're implementing it immediately
Which is why the following question is being put to the board

Life is priceless Anonymous 41803553Locked[View]

is there any bigger oxymoron? Human history was filled with a history of human life being quantified financially, with people constantly, to this day, calculating and valuing life in a real and objective way. Hell, its the basis of slavery after all.

Human life, in and of itself, is effectively worthless, not priceless; ANYONE can make a human being without even knowing how, they're absurdly cheap in value. On the other hand, physical objects often require precious resources or knowledge to make-- much more valuable than a simple body.

Where did this asinine concept come from?

>Human history was filled with a history of human life being quantified financially
this is not contradictory with life having inherent value. i'm fully capable of burning a physical object that requires precious resources or knowledge to make like it's nothing, shooting all the creators and then blowing up the precious resources used with super dynamite. god is not going to come down personally to stop me from ignoring the value of something and destroying it.

>calculating and valuing life in a real and objective way. Hell, its the basis of slavery after all.

there's nothing objective or real about assigning an arbitrary value of arbitrarily valued forms of arbitrarily valued currency to anything. if you think slavery has been priced with the "cold math of the universe" you are seriously out of your mind. even in a materialistic worldview, the only thing capable of assigning value to any of these things is a person. there is no money, no markets, no currency without people. your example to describe humanity as cheap, scarcity, is an excellent example of something that only has the value that we give it.

you're essentially attacking "intrinsic value" from the position of an economics 101 student which just doesn't make any sense at all lol

More familiar threats could be used as a starting point for any world building on alternate histories. I mean history just keeps repeating itself every few years, write what you know, and nobody ever learns from anything.
The Mongol Empire is so interesting. I've gotten into its history in the past few years. All their policies and tactics are so interesting.
I know the land itself is what's hard about invading Russia. Invading Russia in winter is like trying to beat Tetris blindfolded. A couple people can do it but good luck man.

!Reaver.GYI!!RmLzHlLwSv 41803412


Yeah, okay, that could indeed be used as a starting point.

Neat, i should take a look sometime too... alas there is so much to do and learn and i have so little energy to do all that. :o

And Russia's definitely a big bite, but they're hardly the only one... and perhaps not the hardest ones either.
The Vietnamese too have an absurdly long reputation of repelling invasions in example, the land there helps too.
Then there's of course Switzerland as an example as well, but also lesser known ones like swamps and forests in which the armies of empires can pour endlessly and never return, Finland being one of the more recently illustrated versions of that.

Sort of? It's mostly based on 불고기(Bulgogi) which is a specific way of cooking beef with sweet soy sauce and onions and grilled.

Korean BBQ in general is just a label for whatever meat parts we like grilling in Korea that are not necessarily commonly eaten outside of Korea, like pork belly, and what we eat the meat with(kimchi, raw oriental lettuce/cabbage, raw or grilled garlic, spicy bean paste sauce and so on).
