Who else is still raging that Google decided to remove support for the Panoramio layer from Google Earth a few years ago? I used to love browsing Google Earth to find pictures from places without having to travel to them. But then Google decided to delete millions of photos and remove support for them, focusing on only allowing commercial enterprises to curate a limited number of pictures under a new initiative for tourism mostly. I wouldn't need to buy Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 if we still had the old features. You used to be able to find a lot more pictures like this from random photographers. They also removed support for Picasa recently.

>>7885 You can visit random places, but not nearly as many as before There's still street view of course, but when you go into rural places or less developed countries....forget seeing much. Try zooming in on some part of Northern or central Africa. Six years ago you would find all kinds of photographs by volunteer photographers and tourists who went to mountains or cool places and uploaded their photos with GPS coordinates. Every part of the Earth had some pictures. That's mostly gone now because they did a reboot. Except for the centralized pictures around hotels and hot springs, etc, you won't find nearly as accurate pictures of how places truly look. You just have the businesses' curated pictures now.
>>7884 >raging about capitalism acting like capitalism There’s no point to it really. Their class interests push them toward this eventually.

Can we get an /x/ thread going for any and all weird shit, serious or not? Since this is probably a majority materialist board, skepticism is welcome as well. As a kid I was really fascinated by stuff like the paranormal and ufology. Not much of a believer anymore but every now and then I'll read about someone's experience or see a photo or something which causes me to pause and think there might be more to the universe than we think. Anyways, I just started playing Deus Ex and it got me back into that sort of mindset. Figured I'd make a thread and see if any anons were interested.

With all of them being post-scarity cybernetic communists. That’s why even though posadism is a big meme I still think that any species that can explore space would be communist. Maybe capitalism is our greatest filter yet.

Yo, I wanna knit some shit. I already have the sticks and the yarn. Hook me up with some basic patterns and tutorials. I want to do a scarf first, something straight and simple.

not op here, just an anon. your thread has inspired me to take up knitting but I’m starting with embroidery to get the hang of it
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=24lR2IRS57A Good beginner tutorial for making a scarf. She talks a lot in some parts but everything is explained clearly. That said, I started and stopped about 3-4 times. It's not easy pulling the same amount of yarn every single loop to make it even. I wasn't even paying attention to that in the beginning and it came out looking uneven. This shit is not as easy as it looks.

>>7717 >It's not easy pulling the same amount of yarn every single loop to make it even. Yeah, that can be difficult at first. I made a similar scarf when I first started learning (though I used a much thinner yarn and needle size) and the loops were very uneven, especially in the beginning (there's also a big hole because I dropped the needles while I was knitting and I didn't know how to put the loops back on). By the end I got used to it and it looked a little better. So don't worry if it doesn't look as nice as the one in the video, it's you first scarf after all. When you want to make a nicer looking project you can correct your mistakes as you go, but now you just need to get the hang of knitting. You can reuse the yarn later, so you could remake it once you get comfortable, don't worry about wasting yarn. >This shit is not as easy as it looks. At first yeah, but it gets much easier. As you do it more often you're gonna be able to knit while watching a movie or something, you won't even really need to look at it. One more thing though, I don't think the style of knitting she's using is very good. There are two main types of knitting you'll see: English knitting (the one she's using) and continental or speed knitting. English knitting (I hope I'm not using the wrong name) is when you put the needle through a loop, wrap the yarn with your right hand and then pull it through the loop like you see in the video. Continental is a bit more complicated, but I think it's much more useful. I learned how to do it from these videos (and from grandma) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LsFZg2Bn06E https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SIzuKBuJkZw&t=102s Basically, continental knitting (when you hold the yarn in your left hand) is much faster, because you use your hands more efficiently. It is also much easier to control the tension so that you get even loops, and you move your hands much less which is nice if you don't want to get carpal tunnel syndrome.

>>7720 Wow, thanks for that. >Have you finished any projects? I'm >>7717 and >>5333. I was trying to get it right the first time, but your post encouraged me just to knit. You're right, the first one shouldn't matter. I hope I'll have something significant to show in the next few days. Gonna check out continental knitting as well.
>>7732 After you learn how to knit and purl you should spend some time to learn about the different types of fabrics you can make by combining knitting and purling. This video shows how to make the most basic stitches. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cD5Cgu-CCF0 It's important that you learn them because you'll use a combination of two or more in most projects. But don't worry they're not difficult (except for the seed stitch maybe). Other than that, have fun! (and be patient)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YgQy70_LPS4 I have no interest in liberal identity politics or their moralisms about pronouns, the two 'journalists' are shallow pricks deserving scorn. However Ben is also disingenuous, and is deliberately provocative. The reaction of this transgender person is honestly understandable considering the situation. Imagine some snooty white dude - who looks and behaves like an edgy 15 year old - is talking smack and bringing up non-sequiturs about something in the lives of people like yourself while knowing nothing outside his own political dogma. Its the kind of behavior that in any other circumstance would get him a smack up the side of the head. Trans debate is important and Jenner's "bravery" is a PR-stunt, but to denigrate a mental issue with "muh genes" is the kind of derisive rubbish reserved for private arguments between friends and not public debates.

This thread is dedicated to the people on this site who play instruments for fun or dollars. Talk about your setup, songs you like playing, techniques, performance. Today I'm with my Fender Player Precision tryna figure out some Geddy Lee bass lines.
>>7568 Nice thread! I don't know anything about gear but I play piano and guitar. I do it for fun, but I'd like to find a way to get dollars from music. Maybe I'll start busking. I like playing blues on piano, and folk on guitar. Here's a little tune I like to play on guitar. It uses dadgad tuning and is called "Midwinter". Idk who wrote it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_QsQmqLs9g Here's the kind of thing I like to play on piano. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E02TdInfxpg Do you have any recordings of your playing OP?

Thread for discussing general Super Smash Bros topics - casual play -competitive scene -cool combos & more
15 posts and 2 images omitted.
Is anyone here interested in any of the competitive aspects of smash or is it all just fun and games?
>>6794 For funsies, plus patting myself on the back for spotting references and remembering where a song is from.
I haven't played for hundreds of hours (yet), but I just got murdered, saw my opponent grabbing the Smash Ball and a Blue Shell while I respawned, and I got murdered right again, so here are my unsolicited opinions about improving Ultimate: 1. There should be more mobility when you respawn, like flying around in a UFO for a bit and then jumping out of it or something like that. 2. Item spawning should be balanced around character speed and position. For the basic idea, picture a flat stage with two characters standing there. A single item can spawn in the middle between the characters, meaning when both characters start running towards it simultaneously, the faster one will grab it. A more fair reference point for spawning is wherever both characters would meet when they started running towards each other simultaneously. Of course, items only ever spawning exactly at that reference point would be pretty dull. Instead, this could be used together with some randomization and a tracker checking whether there is a strong trend of being particularly fair or unfair towards a player in how the items have spawned and this potentially triggering a different spawn point to make up for that. You also need to take verticality into account, but that's the idea basically. (Perhaps something like that is already in the game; if so it's too subtle for me to notice.) 3. The Final Smash Meter as an alternative to the Smash Ball seems like a really half-baked idea. I think it should take longer to get the F Smash from this (especially with characters that have a very strong F Smash) and when the bar is full, I think it would be more interesting if the character pulsated in and out of the state where you can do the F Smash, like 1 second in, 2 seconds out, 1 second in or something like that. 4. Attacks by slow characters should have more hitstun. 5. There should be an automatic slow-mo replay of the kills after a fight because I often have no idea what just happened. I feel like I'm Joe Biden driving a car. Where am I? Who just got killed and how? When somebody got killed by stage hazard or an item, a little line of text explaining what it was would be helpful. Oh my God, I really sound like I'm getting senile :(
6. Items are really overpowered. They should modify your character's abilities, but it feels rather like your character vanishes for a while behind the awesome power of the item. EITHER Items should get a big nerf across the board, from how long gust of wind, the hammer, the invincibility star etc. are active to how often you can swing the big baseball bats and swords OR a kill with an item should count for half as much as a non-item kill. Or maybe both.
