So much COPE in this thread, let us go one by one >>13876 Evola is a cringe, nice projections. I only read marxists and hegelians. Now post body. >>13959 yes yes because every person that isn't a twinky runt has to look like that synthol infused roidmonkey, your insecurities and projections are coming trough. Yes Clarence Kennedy moving around 300 kg looks exactly like him. There are the two genders, you can either be twink femboy or a synthol roidmonkey with no functional strength. >If you;re doing it for others in the first place and not some side benefit then you're doing it wrong. I agree completely. I mainly lift weights & do BW exercises for strength but I also lift for aesthetics, if you aren't a bloatlord or auswitz your gains will be visible after a year or so of training, if you aren't using meme exercises and meme weights. >I-I carried a small steel fridge up 4 long ass flights of stairs! >strong lmao >>13966 >No, it literally doesn’t. You can be 130 lbs and stronger than someone 255 lbs.

>>13959 also >Any martial artist worth their salt will tell you that excess muscle-building is a handicap. Did it occur to you that I do not train strength to fight? Tyson Fury is definitely stronger than the average person but that is not what he trains for, I might be stronger than him in absolute terms even, but he throws a hundred times stronger punch than me. You can train strength in other uses and not just fighting, if I was training to fight I'd be doing more cardio than just running once a week, I'd be conditioning all the time, and I'd stop training as hard for strength gains and train explosiveness in movement more, probably slim down for mobility as well. Strength training also doesn't translate into fighting or compensate for fighting skill, you can still get your ass beat no matter how big you are if you don't know what you are doing. Also the picture I posted above, the weightlifter clarence kennedy himself stays at 100kg or less bodyweight at all times because he becomes inflexible over it, yet even at 100kg he is not some caricature of a baloon animal you posted to make yourself feel better. I would even bet money to say that kennedy is higher bodyweight than the synthol freak you posted.
lads my forearms are fucked, i look like a recovering famine victim. only have two 9.5kg dumbbells at home, any good routines to maximise my gains? also is working out at night healthy? i only ever seem to have energy to work out at like 1 AM
>>13984 You should aim to relax your muscles and sleep after lifting for gains since that's when muscle grows
(66.86 KB 1018x667 sfas2.jpg)
>>13985 Don't listen to him, you are still a newbie and should be training all the time, just make sure you get 7-8 hours of sleep a day. >>13983 do inward grip pull ups and deadhangs and lift rocks unironically. Find the heaviest rocks you can still lift and leverage them to your chest or onto your shoulder, if you aren't struggling to do so the rock isn't heavy enough. Keep a good posture to not fuck up your back. I train with a 80kg rock but I've been training for a long time, I saw my forearms explode when I started training with a rock, same goes for grip strength. Nothing in the gym works like a rock. You can also bearhug it so you have to hold it with your core, biceps and forearms and carry it. Don't ahve a good picture of me flexing but have pic related.

>>13965 What are the options for universal rigs? I don't know much of the scene, what are the options?
>>13967 Universal rigs are everywhere, just make sure you get a trustworthy brand. They have PALS webbing (also called MOLLE, but that's wrong), and you can weave pouches into them, and do as you see fit. But honestly, what is your use case? Are you going to be moving on foot with a ruck? Or are you going to be in a vehicle? Are you employed in a DMR role? Are you trying to be covert, or are you going for an overt presence in an area? Give me a list of what you're trying to carry on your person, if you don't mind. I'll be up for a couple of more hours.
>>13969 Are you military? Why are you on bunker-chan if you're military? I'm organised in a rural, heavily wooded and brushy area, no need for going covert. Yes, I have a bag, and I need to be loosely vehicle-compatible. The area is reallllyyy brushy, and I would like to not snag on everything. I already have a belt and plans for the belt that include a pistol holster with space on it or next to it for a magazine, a magazine pouch for rifle, a pouch for pliers. What else do you recommend? Where should I put the knife? I have a bag with the usual, magazines, foodstuffs, maps, rain gear, party material, and water. IFAK is easily accessible in the bag and this is how it is for all of my bromos. I don't want anything sticking out of me because of snag and easy movement. So what do you recommend? Not just the chest rig, what are some tips all around?
>>13978 >Are you military? Why are you on bunker-chan if you're military? Maybe. And for the same reason you're here. As for the rest, the best thing you can do to avoid snagging is to tie and tape down your straps. Conduct checks on you and your buddies before every exercise. The biggest thing that gets caught is the rhino mount on your helmet if you have one. A good tip is to attach that as a whole item and keep it in a pouch on your person, then attach it only when you're actually going to be using it. Common sense, but even military guys do that stupid shit. Second, belts are good, but can fuck with your ruck. Make sure you try it out and can wear it comfortably without it digging into your back. Keep your back slick, and if you do have a hydration pack like a camelbak, make sure it isn't permanently attached. At the very least, you should be able to place it in your ruck and then in whatever pouch you've left on your back, so as not to create a gap between you and the ruck. Not the biggest deal if in a vehicle, but make sure you can get in and out without too much hassle. Also, keep the side of your pistol mostly clear, or limit it to a flat admin pouch, as well as ensuring you have a low to mid-ride holster. This will ensure you can draw your weapon if need-be. Some kind of retention solution is prudent as well. You can go with a lanyard, or simply having a bungee over the pistol to keep it in the holster. Do not, for the love of god, buy a serpa holster. Those are shit. Esstac makes some good stuff, and that's where I got my belt. Mine mostly stays on, so think things through. The IFAK should be kept on your baseline kit, that is, whatever you aren't going to be taking off. I keep mine on my belt, but putting it on your rig or carrier should be just as good. Keep another in a pack. The IFAK on yoru kit is for others to use on you or for you to use on yourself if need-be. Never use your IFAK on someone else. Use an extra one in your pack instead or whatever is in their kit. You should have an SOP for this so that everyone knows where the IFAK is located on everyone else. You can either mark it or designate a place. A common one is in the rear left side, almost to the back, but enough so that it won't interfere with your ruck. The multitool can be kept almost anywhere. I keep mine in a pocket in my pants, but have carried it in my admin pouch either to the side or up front. Doesn't need to be anything fancy, just something you can use to cut 550 cord, tape, etc. You should have a head lamp, red and white light, and make sure your maps are red-light readable. The knife is best kept on your kit. I like to carry it near my left shoulder, but it shouldn't interfere with shouldering the weapon on that side either, nor should the straps of your ruck rest on it. This is a recipe for pain. As for the holster, if I'm reading it right, you have both the weapon and magazines next to each other. I would highly recommend you keep them opposite of each other so that you can reload faster, and to keep a speed pouch for an extra rifle magazine. However, seeing as you seem to have an SR-25, this might not be such an issue. It will be if you're a rifleman. Something to think about. Things to think about: Knee pads. Bounding movements are a bitch, and will fuck your knees up if you aren't careful. I personally never used mine and my knees are fucked. Helmets. If you don't have one, you should. One of the leading causes of casualties are TBIs(Traumatic Brain Injury). It doesn't have to be a ballistic helmet, but it should protect your head in case you take a fall or something falls on you. I highly recommend the standard ACH. It's cheap, works, and while it may not be as light as the new high-cut helmets, it does provide more protection and can do all the same things. Yes, you can even wear peltors under it. It's built with that purpose in mind. Just get yourself another strap for it, because the issued one sucks. Don't mount too much stuff on it, just the necessary stuff. Put on a helmet cover on it too. It will dampen noise when you brush against things, and you can use it to weave vegetation into it. Soft covers. A boonie is always good, and if you aren't moving or getting shot at, is more comfortable and easier to work in. If you have two, you can turn one into a veil. All in all, seems you're doing well. Make sure you have at least enough room for six magazines on your person. The standard is eight, but, I find that's overkill. Six is the sweet spot, and you can always carry more in your ruck.

>>13979 PT 2. If you train long enough and hard enough you're going to do away with the useless stuff and move on to good stuff. Obviously this is just a small group of tips on an internet post, but you should be training hard. Every weekend if necessary, but at least once a month. Make sure you or your leadership have a concrete training schedule and stick to it. There are tasks that you must train for every time, and some that only go quarterly, but every training even should get you more familiarized with a concept or introduce you to a new one. Do not get complacent. This is the most important part. PT on your own as well, and make sure you're pushing yourself. Obviously without the money and training the government provides, you can only do so much, but that is not an excuse. Make sure you read appropriate field manuals, and apply theses concepts wargame it, and conduct AARs in order to improve your training. The fascists are doing this much already. You need to that and more.

Why do Americans have the most retarded interpretation of this film imaginable? Anonymous Comrade 05/08/2020 (Fri) 17:49:15 No. 9288 [Reply] [Last]
Holy shit, I've rarely seen a movie as on the nose and blunt in its critique of capitalist society, and yet Americans seemingly cannot comprehend what it's a criticism of. I've seen "It's about authoritarianism" "It's about the death of free market competition" "It's secretly about socialism!" Holy fuck, how can it be possible to be as retarded as burgers? It's like unless a film blatantly jumps up and down shouting "CAPITALISM BAD" they literally can't parse out any form of symbolism or allegory at all. Why are these people such idiotic apes? The writer/director was literally part of the South Korean Socialist Party, tf is the dysfunction in burger brains?

>>13971 >mentally ill are treated like tragic romantics or superhuman maniacs Watch One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. The Joker is a tragic romantic he is shown as desperate and deluded, who wants to be admirable and admired but fails because he cannot understand how to do it right and his societal position only further handicaps him. And while a normal person just sucks it up and lives on, he loses it and goes on a mad streak of fame-inducing events.

>>12600 I felt the writers were a little too in love with Don, he's supposed to be this deeply flawed character living a paper thin life, but just about every episode gives him an opportunity for a grand gesture of forgiveness or charity. I guess his arc lacked weight to me because of how often he's shown to genuinely be the most well adjusted person in the room.

Fantasy Anonymous Comrade 12/14/2019 (Sat) 01:25:48 No. 3288 [Reply] [Last]
Often when when talking about leftist fiction, it is in relation to speculative science fiction.
I'd like to have a thread to discuss not only fantasy with leftist themes, but fantasy in general.

So, read any good fantasy recently?

Let me ask you a question instead. What would your response be if I told you that a fantasy game in which "races" are biologically determined, these differences are grafted onto species, and that these species have essential cultural and behavioral features is racist? What if I pointed out the racist origins of the entire fantasy genre and how by consuming fantasy media, you reproduce racism and, even worse, turn racism into a "post-racial" ideology of "just having fun" unlike in "real" politics where of course you are not racist and don't like Trump. What if I pointed out that it is actually the space of real politics which is the fantasy, since as you point out as long as you avoid forbidden words it doesn't make much of a difference, whereas the media young people consume is where their identity is really determined, as revealed by the venomous response such questions usually receive and the immense amount of obsessive energy generated by media compared to picking up a single book? The truly unfortunate thing is that the reverse of "I'm not racist," the liberal counterclaim made famous by a puppet theater show for "adults" that "everyone's a little bit racist" is no better since it dissolves racism into a background white noise. Everyone is, in fact, extremely racist, but in today's society of brand identity you have to root it out and find where it hurts. For Avenue Q type liberals, it is pointing out the extreme racism of Hamilton and Joe Biden. For the average redditor, it is video games and the fantasy genre. For the average suburban boomer it is sending your kids to an inner city school or housing projects in your community. The basic post-civil rights compromise was that racism would continue but no one could acknowledge racism. Racism was something only evil people did, everyone else in post-Jim Crow America was not racist (something you reproduce by imagining Mississippi as more racist or some segregationist backwater. In fact the new South is closer to Orange County, California whereas the most segregated cities are in the North and progressive small towns like Bernie Sanders' Burlington, Vermont). The side effect was the dispersal of racism into every nook and cranny of culture rather than a centralized politics and community, and thus many racisms all hiding within the multiplicity of subcultures. It's not enough to say that both Trump and Joe Biden are racists, and in fact Biden is probably more racist given he was a key figure in forming post-civil rights segregation and continues to uphold it while Trump just whines on twitter, though this helps target a certain demographic who have "mainstream" media hegemony. One must point out how foundational and how powerful racism is, to the point that colonized people rhemselves often reproduce racist logics about themselves in competing with American cultural hegemony on its terms. One must root it out everywhere it disguises itself by pointing to somebody else and saying "look, that's the real racist!" Your way plays into racism's hands. --- from smokeuptheweed9
>>13874 I’ll call you a retard and move on.
>>13874 >muh fantastic racism Leaving aside historical fact of the actual intended thematic aims by, e.g., Tolkien, Howard, Leiber, Alexander, etc. completely obliterating the implication this is supposed to damn fantasy with as a genre, something else MUCH more obvious has always made me kek about it. If muh races and muh cultures are supposed to be so unforgivable in fictional worldbuilding, doesn't this implicate (except for something completely lacking them like Foundation where they were silently genocided by friendly robots) the entire SF genre as well?
>>13874 This has to be a copy-pasta by some liberal PoMoist. 1) This has already been addressed with the whole Tolkien debate 2) This automatically assumes that races in magical realms correlate to human races when the latter has no biological basis or have un-natural origins, like most "pure evil" races do. again, this is visible in Tolkien's works where the only true evil is Orcs and their creator who became darkness, while humans, dwarves and other races tend to vary in virtue and vice.
