Book Club pt. 2 41819721[View]

A new thread for the book club to discuss its next reading: The Brothers Karamazov, written by Fyodor Dostoyevsky!

Sorry for the delay. I took longer getting this up than I would have liked to. If you were working on something, Chewy, feel free to just post whatever you've got here (those notes you took were great, by the way - do you mind if I post them here? Or if you have more, you could post those as well).

And so we enter the realm of the russians. Let me begin by addressing the elephant in the room: this book is quite long. I expect to spend two to four months on it as a group. Many of you had trouble finishing Heart of Darkness in a month, meaning this will likely be a challenge for you - I hope that the prose of Dostoyevsky suits you all more (I know I was not a fan of Conrad) and that you can get through this at a better pace. Even if it seems like too much, though, I hope that you all stick around and do your best to read along with the rest of us. Do your best and don't give up! And keep us all updated with your progress as we go.

If you didn't finish Heart of Darkness at all, feel free to catch up on that and continue to this book at your own leisure. Even if you don't finish reading these works, all of you have something to contribute to the discussion of them, which is what I'm really hoping to gain from these threads.

Let's get to the questions. I ripped some off the interwebs this time. Bear with me here, I know less about this one than I did Heart of Darkness and it's also much less controversial which makes it a little harder.

1. What translation are you reading/going to read? I want to warn you a little about this: don't overthink it. In all likelihood, your first choice was probably fine, and unless you find yourself disgusted with what you're reading, don't worry about switching to a different translation. I do reccommend doing a little bit of research into it, maybe google around for a half hour or so, but don't overdo it looking for the "best" translation, or you'll find yourself never reading the damn book! Read through some previews and find one with prose that you enjoy. That will be the most important thing. If you have any thoughts on the different translations, please let us all know them!

2. Dostoyevsky was, of course, quite religious, and Christianity plays an important role in everything he wrote. I've met quite a few people who actually said Dostoye

Penis head samurai jack Unlikeable Pony 41839998[View]

I gotta admit, while I was 100% prepared for blood and real living creatures deaths in samurai jack, I was actually taken aback/surprised by a character being called a "talking penis" in the latest episode.

I know it sounds juvenile, but while violence has always been a big part of jack, vulgarity/cursing seems like something that never existed in it, so people cursing in the recent episode took me by surprise.

not that I'm advocating censorship or bothered by it, I'm just wondering if anyone else was surprised/shocked by the Penis head joke and subsequent joke in Samurai jack.

Steam might've messed with the executable file too clumsily. The devs and even the original publisher have long became history so you'd be perfectly morally justified to torrent it. But that'd take a long time or you'd have to worry about a virus, so I hope this picture helps.

does the computer consider separate partitions different drives for that?

DemonioBlanco, Resurrected 41839348

Yes, but of course, you need the partitions done before naming them.

Anonymous 41839467

>does the computer consider separate partitions different drives
"Drive letters" is the commonly used phrase you've likely meant to use. Proper term is "logical drives". You can't assign labels to partitions, at the very least in the most widespread file systems, unless there were some changes in the last ~5 years.

>What you eat for breakfast

I love me some over easy eggs on toast with cheese and a cup of milk. Or if i don't have much time to eat, it's the classic bowl of cereal and milk or oatmeal and cereal. Healthy cereal during the week, the delicious sugary stuff on weekends. Weather it's oatmeal or milk varies.

How about play various online multiplayer games?

Not just Tabletop Simulator but various multiplayer games you can play over steam or online.

Alternatively you could all take an interest in an MMORPG and explore a whole world together.

Or, if you lot are the creative types, share a YouTube channel together to show others your play times together.
