How to build a skyscraper out of wood (Vigte: I was skeptical, but I read through and they seem to have thought it through quite well... I'm impressed.) by Vigte in technology

I would assume the set up could be made without fasteners - it could be laid atop and pieced together with joints - sort of like Japanese carpentry perhaps (but more american-industrialized, less fancy I presume).

Realistically, even if it were only LIGHTLY treated on the outside after manufacture and was entirely "condensed wood" - think about a firepit out camping.

By the time the wood actually starts to fall apart (especially if it's uniform, huge and smooth, which will take FOREVER to light), everyone can be out...

Specific knowledge is knowledge that you cannot be trained for. If society can train you, it can train someone else, and replace you

then

Specific knowledge is found by pursuing your genuine curiosity and passion rather than whatever is hot right now.

I think I said this same thing, though from a different point of view

HELP!!! My Car was broken into last night... I think I'm being targeted... (Jeremy Rhys "AlienScientist" publishes a movie debunking UFOs and Bob Lazar - car broken into and wife followed (apparently)) by Vigte in conspiracy

Just a quick vid he uploaded - keep an eye out on his channel and maybe check out the movie he made that might be the cause of this

Could have been back luck/timing though, does sound like a simple robbery and a lucky car for someone to bust into (silly to keep so much in the car) but... still.

Little disappointed in him swearing in front of his kid RIGHT at the end - but... I can understand and he's usually not this way.

Levi vs Kenny's Squad Full Fight | Attack on Titan Season 3「進撃の巨人 Season 3」(No real spoilers for first two seasons if you never saw them yet, this is to get you INTO the show) by Vigte in Anime

Only spoiler is that Levi makes spiderman look like a punk bitch. (It slows down at 1:30 for approx a minute but get's right back into it. Yes I know it's ridiculously unrealistic, but we all need to unwind sometimes. Plus there is a lot of red-pills about the nature of organized religion, government and generally shitty people throughout, I'm sure you can pick up on some of that during the video)

For a show about... giants eating humans, a little human on human with no real reveals is a good way to get people into the show.

A true classic of Japanese conspiracy-action animation. I picked the one with NO subtitles so nothing gets spoiled and you can just be in the moment. The music is just fucking amazing, it just gets better every season.

I think you might like it.

The problem with a "Good" secret society, is that by the very nature of good and evil, evil can infiltrate the good organization with impunity - while a good person doing the rites of evil as a spy, will become tainted in at least some small way and/or be found out easily.

Good cannot and does not need to hide, I feel any organization like this should do it with fancy logos and "neighbourhood watch" signs and stickers on shop windows, it should have the moral authority in the public space, with it's eye ever watchful, while evil remains in the shadows.

The first thing I did when I read the title was "control+F: fire".

More importantly, the wooden beams created with modern processes are so big and solid that it actually takes enormously high temperatures to set them on fire — below those temperatures, the surface of the beam simply chars, while the beam itself maintains its structural integrity. "Steel is actually less fire resistant in its pure form," Snapp said. "When steel hits a certain temperature it starts melting, the connections break."

Nice.... nice... yes, now that I use my brain for 2 seconds this makes sense...

The substantially low amount of concrete used impressed me greatly too, (concrete is created by turning CaO3 into CaO (I BELIEVE but I just learned that yesterday, so, it's still finding it's place in my brain-harddrive), producing CO2 as a by product (this I am sure of), it is one of the most directly harmful processes we use),

Obviously, there are aspects of construction that will emit CO2 no matter what material you use. But steel and concrete also have carbon emissions intrinsic to that material: Sixty percent of concrete's emissions, for instance, come from the chemical reaction to make the concrete. Replacing a lot of steel and concrete construction with wood could save us a lot of CO2 output.

The whole fucking reason I was banned from Reddit in the first fucking place was calling out the Qult way too soon.

Nothing is ever going to happen. I WISH it would, I WISH it had.

But it's time to stop being played.

Why are all the cool animals that are last of their species called George?

Edit: Shit, he's dead too?! Fuck... now I'm really sad.

Picturing George the Snail riding on George the Turtle's back through the stars is the only thing that will make it better :'(

I've been saying it since I saw this:

STOP SHAVING. Trim your beard with a pair of nice (read 20$+) scissors and a comb with teeth as long as you want your beard. No more tugging, no more pain, no more razor burn or thousands of micro-cuts allowing chemicals and disgusting bacteria into your face.

STOP SHAVING, DO NOT BE AFRAID OF YOUR FINAL FORM THAT HAS BEEN DENIED TO YOU BROTHERS!!!!!!!

Just noticed its almost exclusively coloured people confronting white people, with a few coloured people in the "mug shot line up" of "sinners".

I'm sure that's just a coincidence.

Gillette (the razor company) has gone FULL "man bad wamen perfec" and they are getting murdered by words all over the internet right now.

I have never cringed so fucking hard.

The comments are a gold mine - the account is even deleting comments. Videos ABOUT this video are already coming out.

The stock price has gone down (SLIGHTLY) towards the end of the day, but the trading day is closed now, expect MUCH higher losses tomorrow.

One could waste every second of a long life, being sad for every species we've ever lost, which is literally 99% of everything that has ever evolved here.

It's how we pick ourselves back up and remember that there is still a chance to save what little remains, that will keep us from just giving it all up, like a candle without oxygen.

Rest in peace, George, let us never forget what we've lost - but also do not let it drown us, while we can still save others.
