>>6161 > the AA during Nam Yep. Both the Yugos and the Vietnamese got very creative with their Air Defense systems during the war, as did the Syrians. A really good example I found was this: In 1972, on December 22, a Vietnamese anti-aircraft unitshot down an F-111 with a single-barrel 14.5 mm ZPU-1. On top of that, the anti-aircraft gun had only 19 shells left when they spotted the American aircraft.
>>6360 Funnily enough there were interviews regarding this. When asked to how they did it, the gunners nonchalantly answer that the Americans on their sorties alway fly on the same path. All they had to do was timing the trajectory of the planes using their watch and shoot where the planes going to be. Also another good example would be that time where an entire air attack got lured into a trap and get destroyed during Spring High. https://www.historynet.com/operation-spring-high-thuds-vs-sams.htm
>Aircraft carriers Their only real use is to act as transport and launch pads for imperialist fleets to park off the coast of a smaller country and bomb it to shit. When face with an opponent of equal technological advancement or even slightly comparable technology these carriers are sitting ducks to cruise-missiles. https://www.quora.com/Why-have-big-battleships-e-g-USS-Iowa-and-the-Bismarck-become-obsolete-in-modern-navies/answer/Chuck-Garen
>>6488 Most modern US strategy is for asymmetrical warfare. Anything more advanced than even Iran can easily beat them to a pulp in a pitch fight.
>>6488 Well yeah, the Soviets specifically made the KH-22 to be able to sink US carriers in 2 hits max, doctrine usually called for firing in salvos but with the KH-22 they were supposed to fire only one at a time since it was guaranteed to hit its target since even modern US CRAM systems have a had time hitting supersonic munitions, plus if by some miracle the KH-22 was shot down it was designed so its fragments after destruction would continue travelling and likely either blind or damage the defence system that shot them down.

Daggerfall Unity only takes 1 minute to install and mods are easy. Follow the video instructions. The files needed are here: Game files: https://drive.google.com/uc?export=download&id=0B0i8ZocaUWLGWHc1WlF3dHNUNTQ Daggerfall Unity: https://www.dfworkshop.net/projects/daggerfall-unity/live-builds/ Recommend these videos for info on mods: https://youtu.be/GyElwUjh3og https://youtu.be/yINjviYSO3s Mods are easy to install. All you have to do for most of the mods is go through to DaggerfallUnity_Data > StreamingAssets > Mods -- dump the dfmod files in the mod folder... But certain mods will have questpacks and instructions. You place the questpacks in a questpack folder and sometimes another folder depending on the mod. Recommended Mods:

IMPORTANT One thing I need to stress! Don't do one thing that the installation video does -- don't put them in a single folder. Make two separate folders w/ the Daggerfall Unity files and the gamefileszip. Put the gamefileszip folder somewhere in the (C:) drive folders, like program files, and once you make a shortcut of Daggerfall Unity application -- launch it and select the gamefilezip folder from there with those contents--but keep the daggerfall unity itself folder separate. THIS IS IMPORTANT FOR TWO REASONS It makes re-installing a new updated version of Daggerfall easier AND it helps prevent potential problems. I recommend getting the version of Daggerfall Unity from early this February and not late February. Modders are still adjusting to the new version and there might be problems. It's better to stick w/ the previous version for now.
(342.34 KB 497x361 ezgif-1-f12649aa1148.gif)
I recommend getting version Alpha 0.10.19 from 08 February 2019 for now for mod compatibility.

In character creation, I recommend making a custom class (or taking nightblade) as people advise... And when you answer 12 questions, pick the ebony dagger always. POINT DISTRIBUTION ADVICE Luck and Personality are the ones you can sacrifice the most in class creation. You're free may take 25-35 points off Personality. You're may take 13 points off Luck. You may take 3-5 points off Endurance. FOR MAGES Int and willpower are best for point distribution. FOR WARRIORS Str, Agi, and Spd Critical strike is a valuable primary skill, likewise dodge--and 1 fav weapon skill. MAJOR SKILLS I recommend getting a slot for Mysticism no matter what character you create. Mysticism is extremely useful for recall spell at the beginning of dungeons--dungeons are long in Daggerfall. AND BTW Language skills are mostly useless. Don't make them major or minor. Better to have minor slots for Restoration and jumping/climbing/running and stuff. A SPECIAL TRICK When you're doing advantages and disadvantages, I recommend this:

>>6464 You can play a rogue/thief like character. Those usually have critical strike still in primary along with dodging w/ short blades. And backstab somewhere in major. Illusion and mysticism might also work well with that build.

The game puts a lot of effort into trying to show the Socio-Economic factors that play into the characters Micro level personal problems (May's Parents chimping out because they were relying on her becoming a PMC white collar to save their house from getting foreclosed / Beatrice having to wageslave basically for free at their own parents business because their mom got wrecked by US healthcare and so on / The Boomers sacrificing children to Molech because they miss the 1950s / Angus and Gregg's whole Arc revolving around their desire to leave hickville USA NOT because of Homophobia or whatever but because they realise there will literally be no livelyhood there once the last of the small business gets obliterated) Now "Is it EssJayDubya shit" well...In some parts But not nearly to the degree that people on /v/ / /vg/ make it out to be. When Angus and Gregg were introduced as being gay i was also at first like "OMG Game fucking ruined just what i heard about he we go..." But No there is basically no pandering to the fact that the characters are gay outside of jokes and so on >TL;DR Very decent play if you like walking simulator / VN style games Decent messaging but everything does contain an EssJayDubya "twinge" in some way

I've got a plot that I want to plant with food and plant crops but the previous owner left plastic crap all over it and it's sunk into the top couple inches of top soil. I would have ideally just mulchsheeted all over the plot but I can't do that knowing now potentially how much crap is below the surface. Is there a method of finding and removing plastics, heavy metals and other pollution or do I need to turn over all of the topsoil and manually find and remove said polluted crap?
I adore this notion sometimes brought up by capitalist bootlickers "if you dont like capitalism just go and live in the woods on your own lmao". While in reality what makes this impossible isn't your inability to survive off the grid, rather, the omnipresence of "the grid". Yep, "living in the woods" is pretty much illegal in most places. How could capitalists allow that? You're a slave, remember. The only thing that differentiates you from a slave is that if you work hard and you're lucky you get to choose a nicer owner. Living on my own and not getting in trouble with the law would require a tent and some means of transportation, so as to move around quickly and never stay for long at one place. But then new problems arise: Heated tents are next to impossible to build yourself, they aren't cheap, they need actual refined fuels, not just wood. Tents in general don't protect you from wild animals. Since you can't grow anything, what the hell are you going to eat? Some forms of hunting and fishing are allowed where I live, but then again, you need fruits, vegetables, wheat, etc. And even hunting and fishing are only allowed in some designated places. Ah yes, moving around. Well depending on where you live a bicycle probably could suffice, but in most places not really. You need a motor-powered vehicle. Well, building a biomass gasifier is doable although dangerous. But than what? You gonna build an internal combustion engine too? None of these problems would arise if you could just get a place where you could stay safe from law enforcement.

After this year's rich potato yields in some farm areas, potato cultivation in Korea is described as an interesting challenge and a promising venture. Korea's agriculture stresses rice, maize and other grains, but this orientation suffered a setback in recent years because of the severe cold and little sunshine in many rural areas. And potato requires far less fertilizer than rice or maize. These considerations inspired the nation to adopt potato as a solution to food shortage. Potato has already been an established crop for years in the mountainous provinces of Ryanggang, South Hamgyong and Jagang. Its extensive cultivation is earnestly planned in the intermediary areas and on plains. In particular, the farms on the plains are gearing themselves to the two-crop system through the cultivation of potato before the rice season, as an inter-maize crop and after the harvest of wheat, barley and vegetables. With still more area allotted for potato cultivation, widespread efforts are made to secure seeds, obtain new seeds suited to local conditions and assimilate advanced methods and experience of potato farming. Officials from the ministry of agriculture go out to the farms to help the proceedings at work. Next year the area under potato cultivation is expected to double that of this year. https://web.archive.org/web/20001012132848/http://kcna.co.jp/item/1998/9812/news12/30.htm >A prospect has been opened for attaining self-sufficiency in food through a great upswing in potato farming. https://web.archive.org/web/20010305170143/http://www.kcna.co.jp/item/2000/200002/news02/04.htm >As the whole country drew on the experience of Taehongdan county with keen interest, potato, once considered as a secondary crop, has become one of the main crops like rice. https://web.archive.org/web/20010310111524/http://www.kcna.co.jp/item/2000/200011/news11/28.htm >He said with great satisfaction that officials and working people of the Phothae integrated farm have made new progress in carrying through the party's policy of making a revolution in potato farming https://web.archive.org/web/20010217173434/http://www.kcna.co.jp/item/2000/200011/news11/18.htm >The construction of minor power stations, large-scale land leveling and rezoning projects, revolution in potato cultivation, fish culture and all other gigantic projects now under way in the DPRK can be carried out only by the Korean people who have nurtured pluck and gut thanks to the trust of Kim Jong Il. https://web.archive.org/web/20191124040859/http://kcna.co.jp/item/2018/201810/news01/20181001-06ee.html >Rodong Sinmun Calls for Bringing about Radical Turn in Potato Farming >Rodong Sinmun Monday dedicates an editorial to the 20th anniversary of the policy of bringing about a revolution in potato farming set forth by Chairman Kim Jong Il. >Kim Jong Il gave field guidance to Taehongdan County, Ryanggang Province on Oct. 1, Juche 87(1998) to advance the policy of bringing about a radical turn in potato farming, and clearly indicated the orientation and ways for increasing the agricultural production of the country through extensive potato farming, the editorial says http://www.pyongyangtimes.com.kp/?bbs=27328 >The period of the Arduous March and forced march in the 1990s is indelibly etched in the DPRK’s 70-year history replete with creation and changes.

>>6300 >the reason why rice has been staple in Korean peninsula (and many other countries) is because it provides complementary vital amino acids to legumes, making meat consumption optional. no. potatoes are easier to grow in europe, and rice which needs a lot more water is easier to grow in east & southeast asia due to more rainfall. protein / amino acids weren't discovered until the 19th century, and the majority of east & southeast asians were illiterate/uneducated until the late 20th century. it's all about crop yield based on climate. so nobody knew/cared about nutrition, they didn't have processed foods / fast food / chocolates / soda anyway. climate regions (tropical, dry, temperate, continental, polar) were not created/divided up until the early 20th century, and even then the delineation of the regions were fuzzy until the mid-to-late 20th century beginning with the information age. when korea split, the north and south also happened to split at two different climate regions. so the north switching to potatoes as their main staple unlike the south is not just for nutritional reasons but it also makes more sense yield-wise based on their climate. today the south exceeds the north in rice production while the north exceeds in potato production.

Hello anons, exciting news! I'm gonna start my gratitude journal. I was just in the shower and as you know the shower is a great place to think. So, once I stop dripping, I'm going to go grab a notebook and start. Sorry, I would do the journal on here, I'm sure you'd all absolutely love to know about my life, but I think the physical act of writing with a pen and paper is probably part of the process. So, I'll let you guys know if it goes well.
