Where is everyone from? American here.
You live in Seoul but you're not a Seouldier?
(I am so sorry)
Nah, I've been here for years. Came here via the Overchan. Not sure if that site even still exists.
There is still an overchan but I don't think its the original. That's how I found this place too, if I recall correctly:
Forgot to mention this, but I moved the domain away from Godaddy a week or two ago.
>post starts normally, if pointlessly, challenging a word we're all using because it's the widely accepted term
>post starts talking batshit crazy about space for no real reason
Uhm, yea? What was the point of that? Give up on the Gernsbackian stuff kid...
I'm pretty sure the guy actually thinks we're all talking out our asses. Only reasonable explanation. Or he's a time traveler, here to warn us of future events involving martian operations and FTL communications.
John... Titor? We should probably listen, if they're giving us a warning from the future!
I'm so cold :(
Its -10 C here, which isn't THAT cold really but we're trying to save electricity so the heat is mostly off. There's a wood stove but the heat doesn't reach my room anyway. My roommate who is out of town texted me earlier to say "please flush the toilet frequently so the pipes don't freeze".
Whine, whine, whine, yeah I know... topic for discussion; what's the weather like in your corner of the globe, megachanners?
I've lived in a few different places but never anywhere that AC was considered a requirement. Keeping the place warm is usually the priority, not cooling it. But Minnesota was a bit harsh in the summer with the temp pushing 100 F in the afternoons, I'll say that much. Oh and I hitch hiked across Montana in August one summer... ouch. No shade, no humidity; every time I visited a gas station I'd have drank half my water before I even made it back to the ramp. I'd rather be a little cold than deal with that again.
part of it depends on where your place is situated. I used to live on a third floor with windows on two sides so I'd get much better breezes, now I'm in a second floor with windows only on one side.
Closer to the ocean there's much better breeze.
weather in Oklahoma has been disturbingly pleasant lately; most days this month I haven't need a coat at all.
It's definitely a welcome change from the norm of the ice storms we usually get- the temperature isn't terrible (20-30f), but we've probably got the most bitter wind ever here. I hear when the Olympic torch came through here they had to modify it because despite all the weatherproofing they did, our wind still defeated it.
I suspect we'll be paying for this in the summer though; 100f+ and humid is normal, and last year 115f wasn't anything special.
What the hell is up with this shit?
>Some 300 Chinese Foxconn employees who manufacture X-box 360 machines said they would throw themselves from their Wuhan, China, plant if demands for lost wages were not met.
>Foxconn came under fire in 2010 when workers successfully committed suicide in a plant that manufactured components for Apple.
I know right?! The hell is wrong with them?!
Everyone knows its trampolines that bring a smile to your face!...
Holy shit. Also, it seems it's Apple, not Foxconn that had the nets installed,
I think that the Mail is misreporting it a little. All other reports point to Foxxcon doing the safety nets, which seems more likely. Apple may be assholes, but they know one thing, and that's publicity.

>Pile of pennies melted by giant Fresnel lens
That's it! I'm hitting up freecycle.org and hope I can find someone with a broken big ass TV they want to get rid of. Imagine solar forging zinc (pennies) into molds to make what ever you want. Zinc has a melting temp of 787.1 F so it'd be a good way to easily make small castings with; cheap too.
From that video it looks like the thin copper coating is burning off?
Somethings being burned off, that's for sure. Makes me think that, and a small copper coil painted with high temp black paint, backed off the focal point a bit, would make a freaking great solar water heater. There's a video on there on distilling water. They had about a liter of water at a rolling boil inside of three minutes. So small volumes heated quickly flowing in a heat siphon with a larger black tank.
I've now put out a APB on rear-projection TVs. I've one bite so far. Hopefully, I'll be able to get one. Then I'm setting up a solar forge. I'm not sure what I'm going to make, but I'll be using easily melted metals. Maybe some small art sculptures, rings, jewelry, and arrow heads. I'll put it in the DIY thread, if that happens.
It's that time of the year again, megachan.
Happy new years!
There's a loli gore and scat manga with octopus girls I had the displeasure of seeing one panel of some time ago. I was only looking for octopus girls. Which there is a good bit of.
This is sad, and I'm a coldhearted bastard... so for me to feel anything... yeah.
"missing" isn't the proper term. "ran away" is more apt. She's 17 and decided to go on the road. It's awesome that her dad cares, but not unusual.
Also, why the hell did she write her note on post it notes?
Let's put it in /b/, just to see what happens.
This. Also the comments 'the length parents will go to amazes me.' Making a youtube video is difficult or something?
Really though, he should just check every Occupy camp, etc along the route. Also, get some tech guy to get into her computer if she left that, or her email account if he knows the address. She could just be running away with some internet partner.
Let's have a discussion about tunaki.
>The Japanese raccoon dog (Nyctereutes procyonoides viverrinus), also known as tanuki (狸 or タヌキ?) in Japanese, is a subspecies of the raccoon dog native to Japan.
>Researchers have suggested that they be considered a separate species, N. viverrinus, or that raccoon dogs of Japan could be further divisible into separate subspecies as N. p. procyonoides (hondo-tanuki) and N. p. albus (ezo-tanuki), but both views are controversial
>As the tanuki, the animal has been significant in Japanese folklore since ancient times. The legendary tanuki is reputed to be mischievous and jolly, a master of disguise and shapeshifting, but somewhat gullible and absentminded. It is also a common theme in Japanese art, especially statuary.
>"Tanuki" is often sometimes mistakenly translated into English as badger, an unrelated type of animal with a superficially similar appearance. Traditionally, different areas of Japan had different names for raccoon dogs as animals, which would be used to denote different animals in other parts of the country, including badgers and wild cats; however the official word in the standard Tokyo dialect is now tanuki, a term that also carries the folkloric significance.
Oh, I hate the movie. I hate pretty much anything Jack Black does. I used to run with some nerd who were all up Tenacious D's ass back when they had the HBO show and that shit got old sooooooo fast.
The Pandaria stuff doesn't do anything for me either way. I'm gonna be all up on the Pokemon thing they're implementing, though.
Thanks for ruining my Tunaki thread. :C
Tanuki, not tunaki.
I hope I can find a better pic of this. Like advice dog with KJI and a car
IL-MOBILE FUCK YEAH
The wild stallion bucked wildly, but Dear Leader Kim was not afraid. He approached the mustang and calmly educated him in the Juche Idea, and the wild horse was calmed. He kneeled and allowed Dear Leader to mount him, then triumphantly lead Him through the streets towards the front line of the imperial puppet government's pathetic army.
People of Megachan, what's the last film you really enjoyed? Myself, I just discovered Fantastic Mr. Fox the other day. It's a thing of beauty.
Also, general film discussion thread.
Well, Scott especially has played the PR stunt shit a few times over this movie, dropping a hint here and there, changing his mind... no idea what to believe when he speaks.
Cinematic Titanic: War Of The Insects
Joel and the other people not on RiffTrax vs a Japanese not-quite-a-spy movie. Guest starring insects and saying GENOCIDE a bajillion times.
The movie is terrible and pretty nihilistic. Then it ends. Riffing's good. Normal CT stuff, Mary Jo Pehl kicks much ass on the mic.
Dog Soldiers - this was described somewhere as "Aliens meets a zombie flick only with werewolves instead of zombies or aliens". That's not too far off. It's not even remotely scary but its a decent way to kill a couple of hours. And if its in any way accurate, apparently the British Army is NOT in the habit of issuing silver bullets to its infantry for some reason.
