But you don't need JS to track users _within_ the domain that they own. Cookies should be sufficient for that. And note that even Google doesn't do the tracking via JS, they do it via a redirect link.

I decided to do some digging and it seems that the bloat is because they're doing client-side rendering via a single page app. So not malice, just incompetence enabled via the usual web frameworks. That also explains why the page doesn't work with JS enabled.

Interestingly, if you force the mobile version of the site you get a much more responsive version (at the expense of having fewer images per page).

can anyone here explain why being "smart" enough to get a "good" job requires so much more instruction than being dumb? shouldn't smart people just be smart enough to figure things out for themselves without needing to receive instruction until they're over 30 years old? how come people who fix cars for a living require so much less instruction than scientists and doctors do before they're done being schoolchildren? seems paradoxical
>> No. 37244 [Edit]
I'm not sure if I understand. Are you asking why complex jobs require more complex education?

Being smart doesn't necessarily mean it will take less time to program the human brain, I think the way most people would define intelligence is by how much information that brain can retain, not process. Personally I don't feel that people in those good jobs are necessarily smart, you can buy your way into those or get connections to hook you up. I'd go as far as to say a lot of higher education people I've met who prided themselves on their intelligence, seemed like idiots. They're good at one thing and one thing only. College used to be where the intelligent went to better themselves, now a standard that your average kid goes to for sex and drugs.
>> No. 37245 [Edit]
> how come people who fix cars for a living requires
There's a bit of a false dichotomy here. When you say "fix" are you referring to an entry level mechanic like you'd find at jiffylube or a skilled technician that does private servicing for high-end vehicles? There's a world of difference between the two: the former is basically "routine" maintenance where you follow a checklist. The latter might require a higher skill level that comes from years of experience in the field, being able to intuitively debug the root cause of issues (but I'm not a mechanic and I hear that modern cars are basically digital black-boxes anyway so this comparison might not be very good). Nonetheless the point stands: you're comparing two different things – I suspect if you look at the high-end of trades jobs you'll see that even though they might not necessarily receive formal education they still do an equivalent amount of time learning and training. That is, a master crafstman is in a completely different league than someone who just took woodworking in highschool.

Now going to your particular examples
> receive instruction until they're over 30 years old
>so much less instruction than scientists and doctors do before they're done being schoolchildren
Until "over 30 years old" is exaggerating quite a bit. I don't know anyone who actively receives post-college education for over 10 years after they graduate (assuming they graduate at ~20). Usually the "scientists" in question will switch from receiving instruction to doing research, and the PhD programs (which might indeed end up taking about 8 years or so) are mostly focused on this research rather than receiving education. Still, the reason why large amount of undergraduate and graduate coursework is needed is because it takes a large time to get up to speed on the breadth and depth of background knowledge needed for these fields. You aren't going to be able to research in Inter-universal Teichmuller Theory without having a solid footing in number theory, which can take several years to master. But this is research-focused stuff. Most people doing practical things in $BIG_CO will not need anywhere

Most of college is figuring stuff out on your own. The classes are just for credit so you can get a degree from a place with a solid reputation. If you're lucky, the professor or TAs are good for answering questions, but that's certainly not a guarantee. If you think it's easy, try self-studying 4+ difficult subjects at the same time and getting to a semi-proficient state in all of them within three months.

In an ideal world, exams in these subjects would be publically available for people to take so they can get a free, but respected degree and the elitist middle man and textbook mill would be unnecessary.

Dumb people are confident. Normies mistake confidence for being "right". See Dunning-Kruger effect.

In that case why not download a pirated version of the game first as a trial version? Supposedly steam also supports refunds, but I refuse to install monolithic drm'd software (that also means I only end up playing chintzy indie titles, but it's good enough for me).

Half-lucidity is completely different from actually having a lucid dream. Also on the thought of fear, if you wanna astral project and even lucid dream it's very important to erase it, at least during the time you will be asleep.
>> No. 35825 [Edit]
I had a half lucid yesterday. Tried the wake back to bed method. Got conscious during a sexual dream, and as the lucidity was only half, that coupled with sexual impulses I just did what the other anon said, followed my impulses and conjured two more girls for me to play with. Weirdly enough I tried to touch the butt of the third one, but it just gave in like it was an empty bodysuit, I don't know if it is because I don't know exactly the feeling it is supposed to be so my mind could not emulate and went for something else. This dream felt different from other normal non-lucid erotic dreams tough. When I wake up after those, I normally feel like some sexual entity tried to mess with me, but this time I didn't felt any of that. I must practice more.
>> No. 37133 [Edit]
Being comfortable helps? I tries but could never achieve lucid dreaming.
>> No. 37213 [Edit]
Do you remember your dreams? I think the wake back to bed method is the most likely to succeed.

I started learning Japanese, well I already did, but took a couple of months off and am now getting back into it. Same story you've heard a million times, whatever. I made the "mistake" of learning all N5 words outside of context because I thought that would be more efficient and I didn't feel like doing worksheets. On one hand, I'm still familiar with all that vocab, on the other hand, learning it in tandem with grammar would have been better. Anyway, I'm not interested in speaking. My goal is fluent literacy. I wanna read something like Saya no Uta smoothly and with crystal clear understanding, really enjoy myself. How difficult would that be? I'm willing to shoot myself in the foot in another area of the language to expedite this specific goal.

I've learned a bit more about the "Japanese Learning Community" and came across AJATT. I find it to be weird and kind of culty. Look at this

It's so bizarre to me. These guys are completely obsessed with perfectly replicating a "native speaker". Use all the right pitch accents and all the right expressions without ever deviating so no one can tell the difference. I started comparing this approach with how English is spoken. Different people say words differently. Some people talk in a sing-song sort of way, others like they're always asking a question. Maybe it sounds dumb or annoying, but I'd never say they're speaking English incorrectly. Every person probably has their own quirks and I like making up my own expressions and getting a little creative. Is Japanese really so uniform between every person(with the same dialect)? What about people with accents? Not only are accents acceptable in English, they're desirable in some cases. My parents have an accent, yet i'd still say their english is perfect.

Imagine if I made a video responding to a German guy trying to speak English in the "perfect way" with no accent or anything "nonnative", and I paused every few seconds to point out some slight inaccuracy in how a word is spoken. How weird would that be? You'd think that German guy is misguided and w

Lately, I've been seeing the expression につき fairly often. More precisely a particular instance of につき: 凶暴につき. I searched around:
につき is defined as:
because of, on account of
per, apiece
The regarding sense I'm already used to, but the other ones don't seem to fit in the context. There is also a very famous japanese movie その男、凶暴につき I never watched it, but maybe it comes from there? When I saw the expression in anime, it got translated as is cruel, but that doesn't explain anything.
>> No. 37015 [Edit]
What's the context? A quick survey of Yahoo!知恵袋 seems to suggest that most people interpret 「~につき」 in 「その〇〇、~につき」 as synonymous with 「~だから」「~なので」「~のため」.

Action scenes alone do not make a movie.

Crazy Samurai Musashi: hold my sword while I reach for my switch-blade...

This movie supposed to be a totally different film, call “Ken-kichi”. Tak was going to make a one single take action with just 10 mins. That project was canceled because the director dropped out. Tak still wanted to make a movie because he has been practicing samurai sword fighting and shit for an year with a his stunt team. Everything was already set up and booked. The equipment and staff was all good to go though so Tak has decided to make a movie with one long action movie since they were all there anyway and wouldn't have the chance to shoot something like this ever again. They didn’t have a time to make write much of a story (and it shows), so they did the minimal and focused totally on the action sequence. Tak was director in the time. Yuji Shimomura directed only first part and last part.
Rather then fully properly choreographing everything they instead kinda ran the action sequence a bit like a cross between a absurd mutation of a sparing match and the worlds most lopsided larp battle ever created. The stunt dudes were more or less instructed to just sort of come at Tak and attack like they actually wanted to hit (with the exception of the dudes that just run at Tak with their arms raised to get cut down), and Tak would use simple defenses and well practiced but relatively simple attacks of his own to dispatch them. Again much like they all did during training and sparing during the lead up to the production.

A friend and I bought each other some games over steam as Christmas gifts. Then I watched him stream a VN. It was fun exchanging banter along the way and he really enjoyed both the VN and the streaming. Later I played a game with some online friends and we made sure to use voice chat. We were quiet for most of it beyond some idle comments and chatter but it was fun. It definitely helped me feel less lonely unlike I normally do this time of year. It felt nice and I hope we'll all do it again. The christmas gift I ordered for myself came in just today but it wasn't what I ordered. I e-mailed the seller about it and hopefully they will respond soon.

Anyone ride a cargo-bicycle?
>> No. 36465 [Edit]
A cargo bike? Sounds risky, what if you needed to transport something valueable and fragile?

Isn't every supra-bike a cargo bike? If it has an extra seat, that's a place you can put cargo. If it has three wheels, it should be stable enough that whichever way you rig cargo containers onto it, you'd be good, easily. They have all sorts of bodily powered transportation, even some that doesn't focus on the legs, but then with oil prices having crashed, and solar actually getting cheap, pedalling sounds a whole lot less fruitful than not gobbling and squanderring beef and poly-whichever-ene.
