I know we're a lazy bunch and we don't go out that much but I'd still like to propose you a photography thread as it can be funny like I'm imagining it.

It's simple. Use any device that let's you take photos and report back with something interesting you found. It can be anything. Outside your window, in your room, in your backyard, in your garage or house. It doesn't have to be any kind of professional stuff, although that's okay of course.

Please limit photos to a maximum resolution of 2560x1920 or something around that area for everyone's viewing pleasure. The photos have to be new and not something you took last year. がんばって!

I used to really be into photography, I mean really. I literally have thousands of dollars in cameras and lenses and video cameras I never use anymore. It's a shame.

I suppose I just realized, it's all pointless. I tend to give up on hobbies fast.

So...I just took this now on an old DSLR, it more or less surmises my life at the moment.

I have an unhealthy obsession with abandoned places, like Hashima, Pripyat, and abandoned villages in Japan and the US.

There is a building near where I live like this. It's been abandoned since 1993. The people who used to live there put a trailer on the property next to the building they once lived in, and when the kids moved out the parent apparently lost all of her money in a lawsuit and hung herself. Never said where. They had to take away the trailer but the building stays here.

Not sure what the building was for. There is a workshop, a hay attic, a horse stable that was made into a bedroom for a while, and the floors are cement except for the three-story area, where the floors are wood. The building was made about mid-sixties. It's been abandoned for going on ten years. Until last year, no kids came here at all, really. It was too spooky. I was the first in a while to go there, mainly because I was seeking other places to live after my mother almost threw me out in the middle of Junior year.

These photos are from a month or two ago. It was finally getting warmer, and the only time you can walk through this field in warm weather without getting infested with ticks (I am not exaggerating this, ten on me yesterday halfway through the field).

That's a garage, and the front entrance. Never use it though, supposedly the room next to the garage (where the door goes) was home to a squatter, and before that was the supposed place the suicide took place. It's the brightest room but it's hard to get into. Full of trash.

I was going to post these in a thread claiming I was looking for houses with my waifu, but thought it was too damned creepy and depressing and opted out of it.

The accessible entrance is on the side. A rotting door I had to kick in in the winter. Inside was a Wang personal computer, very old. Took it back home but lost it somehow.

Graffiti is less than one year old. Airsoft friends came there from a few towns over to see how a game could go. Brought some "recruits" who stole the team's spraypaint and shit up the place. Others from around the neighborhood have also come to add a few tags.

This is the main atrium. No idea what this building was for, again.

Another view. Tons of windows. Taught a kid we were airsofting with a year ago how to write Japan in Japanese, since we were part of the "Neo-Imperial Forces" for one op we never got to do. Now he just carved crappy kanji in the wall and it could be pegged on me should there be an investigation and I'm the only person in the neighbourhood with knowledge of the Japanese language.

I like abandoned places too. When I was a kid I lived down the road from an abandoned public pool and I loved poking around in it (except for the fact it had the biggest spiders I had ever seen in my life). Some guy bought it and all the land over there a long time ago and turned it into his motorcycle garage ;_;

>I have an unhealthy obsession with abandoned places, like Hashima, Pripyat, and abandoned villages in Japan and the US.

Me too. Too bad there aren't any abandoned houses anywhere near me, so I can't go take any pictures. There used to be one, which I explored to death but never took any photos. And there have been a few house fires in the recent years, but they always get torn down in a matter of days so I don't even have the time to explore them. Too bad I don't have a car, because there's an abandoned mill on the old bus route to my old school, and I've always wanted to explore it but the buses don't pass it anymore and it's too far away to go with a bike or by foot.

I've always wanted to check out the city of Pripyat, and a couple abandoned places in Japan too. But I can't afford that stuff.

Here's an interesting site by the way:
It has lots of abandoned places too. I've never really visited any, because of the aforementioned lack of a car, but I found a couple abandoned military bunkers used in WWII etc. around my own country. There are some caches hidden really close to where I live too, but none are abandoned places or such, so I'm not really interested in those...

Most people with "allergies" in the US either have Munchhausen syndrome or developed mild allergies that they can easily develop a tolerance to, but would rather have the allergy in order to make them feel "special." Generally, if someone is either claiming they have an allergy to fruits or lactose, they are either faking it or just don't feel like developing a tolerance. And because of those people, we have labels like this.

Except people with shellfish and nut allergies. If I were allergic to peanut butter, I would kill myself... by eating peanut butter.

Speaking of allergies, something like an allergy: you know that think called lactose intolerance? It isn't natural, when the milk is pasturized it changes some of molecules, and wa la! Some people are now unable to drink milk. So if your country/state of residence hasn't banned raw milk, you can drink it and never be intolerant again! (if you have lactose intolerance that is)

I'm pretty sure you made all that up. Whenever I would mow the lawn I'd get a rash, and I found out years later I'm allergic to grass and pollen. Mowing the lawn is the only chore I actually like doing; I didn't claim to be allergic to get out of it.

prove it with science, not anecdote.

>The data fail to support our hypothesis that Raw Milk confers some benefit over Pasteurized Milk in the form of an improvement in the experience of symptoms of lactose intolerant adults.

the FDA and CDC disagree with you, and insist that raw milk is dangerous to consume.

>Raw milk potentially contains a wide variety of harmful bacteria – including Salmonella, E. coli O157:H7, Listeria, Campylobacter and Brucella – that may cause illness and possibly death.
>> No. 6317 [Edit]
It is not raw milk that is dangerous it is what might be in it, all those things can make their way into pasturized milk too.

"Pasteurization does cause the loss of several vitamins, but only approximately 0-10%" (cites FDA)

Raw Milk is inheritly more nutriutious, 0-10% infact, what is not inherit is the presence of dangerous bacteria. A person drinking raw milk with out bacteria would be better off then a person drinking pasturized milk without bacteria. Logically Raw Milk is healthier.

Drinking Farm Milk Reduces Childhood Asthma And Allergies
>> No. 6318 [Edit]
I knew my fair share of people with "allergies", and 9 times out of ten, they actually ADMITTED that it wasn't anywhere near life threatening, or that they had Munchhausen's. That 1 out of ten was someone with either a shellfish or nut allergy.

Did you know that most widespread allergies, including peanut allergies and gluten allergies, did not even exist 30 years ago? How does one explain that?
>> No. 6319 [Edit]
For the first part of your message:

For the lack of allergy knowledge more than 30 years ago, why are you assuming it's some sort of conspiracy? That's a pretty bold claim, shouldn't you have some proof for that?
Why couldn't it be like every other disease or medical condition that has become more prevalent: a change in diagnostic criteria, increased awareness, or environmental changes (like better sanitation -- same with another immune system issue, asthma)?
>> No. 6320 [Edit]
>Drinking Farm Milk Reduces Childhood Asthma And Allergies

did you actually read the paper?
"The present study does not allow evaluating the effect of pasteurized vs. raw milk consumption because no objective confirmation of the raw milk status of the farm milk samples was available"

"However, raw milk may contain pathogens such as salmonella or EHEC, and its consumption may therefore imply serious health risks"

"At this stage, consumption of raw farm milk cannot be recommended as a preventive measure."

>Pasturized milk infected between 168,791 and 197,581 people
That number is obviously due to the high number of people who drink pasturized milk. Raw milk is still more dangerous.

>Raw Milk is inheritly more nutriutious
Not significantly. see the next sentence from that wikipedia article
"Raw milk contains very little vitamin D, which is added to processed milk."
0-10% is not a big deal, especially when raw milk carries the risk of DEATH and hardly anyone in the developed world should be worries about vitamin deficiencies anyway. To be honest I don't think either type of milk is a particularly healthy thing to drink; its full of fat.
>> No. 6321 [Edit]
Only fucktarded liberal moms would ever care about their child getting a mere allergic reaction.
>> No. 6322 [Edit]
You could add vitamin D to anything, that can not be counted towards pasturized milk being better. Not to mention them adding it is optional, and if I pasturized my own milk it wouldn't have it.
>> No. 6323 [Edit]
It's not well known, but still is a fact that peanut allergies did not exist thirty years ago. Brian Williams did a report on it and if he ever told a lie I would personally remove my liver and serve it to you.

Allergies today come from molly-coddling, being lied to, and inundating the gene pool with kids with allergies to everything.

Culture has changed, and I for one would seriously consider faking an allergy if it got me special treatment. But we have ethics, something most people out there do not. For instance, the growing number of "culturally conscious" teenage girls who get offended by every little thing in a discussion just for the power trip of being able to control someone else. It was hell trying to get through high school with so many girls with "gluten/soy/nitrogen allergies" telling me to stop eating my whole grain sandwich and cold soba in front of them and saying that English is a survival language in the US, or that Palestine should really consider being more organised if they want to become a state.

Please, don't understand it the wrong way: I do NOT profess any sort of love to nature (whatever that supposed to mean, the "natural"). On the contrary: I cherish this collection as a melancholic (sad but beautiful) memory/rendition to XIX century positivism's broken dream, of science -the good old predatory science- managing to objectively understand the world and the universe, to conquer them both for us human beings.

You see: a collection is beautiful because it's well preserved death. Life is a dirty and cannibalistic bussines, about creatures killing and eating each other in order to keep on going, with no ultimate purpose at all; a mysterious march of bodies corrupting through time, with brief moments of deceptive splendor quickly comming to a pathetic end. Time destroys everything, and Earth always demands back whatever we temporarily borrow from it, as its cycles go on and on until all shall come back to nothing...

So, to keep collections is a subversive act against this: to turn the ephemeral-living into a permanent-inert; the inscrutable nature into the intelligible artificiality of scientific theories. It is also, of course, about turning the accidental and repeated into unique and special: to turn the harsh reality into appropriate ground for beauty; to turn pedestrian things into objects of art, deserving of admiration and love...

It's not that different of having a perfect (non living, nonexistent, and thus eternal) waifu to really love, as opposed to have a decaying 3DPD to merely endure.

File 13341386142.jpg - (298.87KB , 492x2308 , Loveless (on butterflies).jpg )

My point was about aesthetical value existing only in artificiality; i.e. my point implied that waifus cannot ever be -flesh and blood- real, nor killed, thus rendering your question out of aim.

Now: did I killed those butterflies? some of them, yes, with my own hands (fingers, actually; choking them is the most common practice for these matters); but most of them are exotic species, cultivated in farms, from far away lands I've never set foot on (and never may); I bought them with the money I've made doing sc. illustration of, well, butterflies (they were lepidopterologists who teached me most I know about them; including how to relax, spread and preserve my own specimens, bought and not)...

However: don't sweat it; as I told you, is not life, for the mere sake of life, what I value here (let alone nature). The affair is more complex (it always is) and, indeed, it is never, ever, ever innocent, not at all.

To be honest, they're just letter openers. Like everything else in that pic, it's just kid's stuff: science, in the fashion of the old Natural History Museums, collections and alike, was a beautifuly naive affair. If I remember correctly, Comte once talked about how the kids of the future would have a very different imaginery: totally scientific/positive, free from metaphysical nosenses; in the end, it was the belief in something like a Scientific Method what ended up being childish: nothing but another fantasy... or, like Thono said:

Its a mid 1970s LA Dodgers team ball. I don't know what it's worth, that kind of thing usually depends on selling it to the right buyer. Probably worth more if its from 1974 because thats the year the Dodgers were in the world series.

Thanks. Glad you enjoy them.

They are females of the same species, colected here and there over Indonesia.

>is it one kind that can change color with the seasons...?

To be perfectly honest, I'm not sure. But not likely: in general, once an insect has reached his final instar (or imago, when it's finally ready to mate), he can neither grow at all or change all that much; and none that I have knowledge of can perform such a seasonal color changing ability.

Some butterflies, like the Junonia almana (will post mines sometime later), have summer and autumn variations; but that difference is determined during the pupae period extension, as they are still becoming adults; they can also vary regionally and become subespecies or geographical races, but those are adaptative changes which take several generations to occur.

The memebers of the genus Orthoptera can go through further instars during their reproductive period; acridids in particular (e.g. Locusta migratoria, Schistocerca gregaria) can change color and get fully functional wings; but that depends on the density of population, as they go from solitary to gregarious, becoming a swarm.

Seasonal color changes, as mimetic adaptations, are better known in some mammals fur (like the mountain hare, the ermine, and the arctic fox).

That wouldn't be incidental at all.

I actually do take pictures when I can but I have a odd taste in pictures. I like taking pictures of the insides of places at night. It's hard to do it secretly without everyone questioning why I'm taking pictures of seemingly random things on my way out of places and many people aren't comfortable with people like me taking so much pictures. I can upload everything I've taken to mediafire if anyone wants. Here is one of them. I want the insides of some restaurants I know but I don't know how to go about doing it. I have a love/hate relationship with my strange obsession.

Dude, I'd love see your pictures. That seems pretty interesting compared to your regular: cityscape, landscape, path, work of architecture/design/structure thing that people have already taken 9000 pictures of. It's the most mundane places that makes up most of life. I'd like to hear more about your obsession, I bet it would make for a good blog. I really love empty complexes, especially large open ones, makes me feel like I'm in a video game. Places that seem abandoned, but aren't actually give an awesome surrealness, I know China would have a bunch of those places due to all it's pointless construction, and I always see Asian movies where someone lives in some apartment complex that is mostly vacant.
>> No. 6446 [Edit]
They are mostly of the same place you see in that pic there since I don't got much access to other places sadly(but I think a modern mall at night is perfect.) and my camera is really shit as I was moving quite a bit with a lot of pics but I think the blurriness it gives to some pics gives them a unique feel. Not often enough to start a blog for it so don't get your hopes up too high. I think some of them could make nice wallpaper. A lot of pics are from outside of places. Wish I could have been a little more precise with that post but I was pretty out of it when I typed that and wasn't completely thinking straight. I've uploaded what I think I looks the coolest to mediafire here --> I think everyone interested in this kinda thing would enjoy some of it.

I took this while I was in Kansas this summer.

It was really great, Kansas. I think I'd like to move there eventually. We (me and my stepdad) went through Kansas on the way to Colorado, which I also enjoyed but there were far too many people in CO.

But I got this picture out of driving through Kansas and I'm glad I did.

Very glad I got to go, and all (first time I'd ever been out of my home state for more than 4 hours), but it seemed like I was absolutely enthralled with the trip there and only mildly impressed with the destination. I feel kind of guilty.

But regardless, this is one of the better pictures I took on the whole trip.

In case anyone was curious, >>23069 is a Jewel Wasp. Those motherfuckers sting cockroaches to paralyze them, then lobotomizes them with a sting in the central nervous system, clips and eats their antennae, lay an egg inside them and finally seal the zombie cockroach inside a nest so the larva has free food when it hatches.

I do care. Actually, allow me contribute with a living bug for a change. This fella was in the kitchen and I took it into the garden (I already have some orthoptera, don't have much more space to spare and didn't feel like killing him by freezing this time). It was more lively in my hand but once on the leaf he became amazingly still. Nice camouflage.

She's been really quiet lately, not taking the "X stance" the Argiope are famed for but rather sitting shrinked on the corner of the web. Then now I went outside to see her and found her body dead on the floor.

Anyway, this is the only photo I took where most eyes are visible, still had to force my hand on the sharpening mask and levels though.
I'll edit some interesting photos of her feeding and maybe something else later, and then I'll stop flooding the thread, at least with photos of this one spider.
Actually, I guess now is a good time to take some really close-up shots of her corpse, because I'm just that much of a sick fuck.

>Android is shit, WP8 is shit, BB is shit.

The audacity to state this, then proceed to not address the fact that ios manages to be decidedly inferior to all of these is just perplexing. You actually have the option to install ios on basically any device with the hardware to support it, so its presence as the native os as a reason for product choice is incoherent.

Native hardware on the iphone is inferior or comparable to its competitors, options for software are moot as any technologically literate person can switch between operating systems at their discretion. What you are left with is a wad of plastic and circuitry priced notably higher than the other pointless wads that are just as easily available to you.

For the record, I continue to use a 29$ phone I purchased in like 2008 and sustaining it costs just under 5$ monthly. Portable computational power offered by "smart" devices is redundant as this function is perfectly achieved by the laptop I own, which offers more functionality and cost substantially less.

You are wrong. iPhone hardware is generally ahead of the curve. Look at how the 5s performs compared to other phones of the time and even an x86 Intel SOC. Apple was also the first to implement a 64-bit processor with their A7 SOC, not terribly important right now but it will be in the near future as memory keeps increasing in phones. Switching this early gives application writers a chance to have their programs ready by the time the switch will be necessary while other competitors are still years behind.

Another good thing about iOS is its support - you can buy an iPhone and know it will be supported for a very long time. 6.1.6 was just released, for a phone from 2009. Compare that to the hundreds of Android phones that have support dropped after a year or two, and then you're left with usually buggy custom ROMs or you have to buy a new phone.

As for installing iOS on any device, I have honestly never heard about that. I imagine most hardware operations would be broken or buggy. The nice thing about iOS on an Apple device is that the architecture and OS are developed in tandem and as such the OS can be completely customized for the hardware inside. There is some degree of this in Android phones, but I don't think any of the Android vendors design their own processors and fabricate them themselves according to their exact needs.

Stating that iOS is 'decidedly inferior' is just an opinion. The general consensus is that Apple is by far the best at HCI design, which I consider to be the most important thing about technology. When I switched from Android I had an OS that had not been updated in two years, which was horribly laggy and crashed several times a week, on the stock ROM. I spent days trying custom ROMs which were all shitty in various ways before I gave up. I opted for a phone with an OS that just works. Customization is not a concern for me, as I would rather have the OS out of my way. I have been able to find a replacement for every single program I used on Android. I don't consider myself technically literate, so for me switching OSes or ROMs is a huge pain and should not be necessary.

I used to carry around a laptop like you, but the convenience of carrying around a single 1/4 pound item with a radio modem that lasts all day without an additional power source outweighed the benefits of additional power a laptop provides. If I need to do anything substantial I can just remote into my desktop from anywhere I like and use that.

Unfortunately, your attendant graphic provides no insight into the conditions, limitations, and methodologies associated with this "metric" or exactly what those fun little bars actually signify. If your assessment is based on standard hardware components, it can be noted that the majority of apple's products are unremarkable in terms of pure computational power, and turgid in any conventional sense.

>Another good thing about iOS is its support - you can buy an iPhone and know it will be supported for a very long time

>I imagine most hardware operations would be broken or buggy.
Not if it's done correctly.

>The nice thing about iOS on an Apple device is that the architecture and OS are developed in tandem and as such the OS can be completely customized for the hardware inside.
Platitudinous nonsense.

>Stating that iOS is 'decidedly inferior' is just an opinion.
As are any remarks or statements that aren't immediately quantifiable and substantiated with technical specifications.

Congratulations. You have emotionally invested yourself in the excrement that happened to leak out of the generic, impartial asshole of some random commercial entity. Perhaps that tends to happen when you exchange almost a monthly proletariat wage for an item whose components are attainable for markedly less.

Smart phones are all tracking devices that infringe on your freedom. It doesn't matter how fast it performs in benchmarks, they are all tools of spying.

Arguing about which spiky dildo hurts slightly less seems silly to me. No matter which one you use, you're still getting fucked.

that's why spoofing applications exists, silly.
From GPS to browser/connection cookies, If 'they' want to track us, they can rectally insert a twenty-two inch dragon dilo and give it a firm twist.

Just because they WANT to track you doesn't mean you HAVE to let them. Breaking an EULA isn't a crime, after all.

Spoofing applications don't matter when your OS itself is backdoored. iOS, Android, whatever. It doesn't matter. They all have proprietary precompiled binaries. Additionally, you might want to look this up:
"Spoofing" applications just give you a false sense of security.

I do indeed, fortunately (it's very uneven around). The problem with hail and heavy rain is that it damages plants, soil and structures (a ceiling nearby collapsed), sewers plug up and we end up flooded, filled with mud and garbage. In my house we built up some steps years ago to keep us safe from the dirty waters, but before that we had to put bags of sand in the doors; the poor devils out there in the streets certainly get the worst of it.

Case in point.

It's really hard to shoot this one due to where her web is placed. Really hard to get in good position, even harder to get the natural illumination to work for you and nighly impossible to keep the flash from doing a mess with the reflections on her body.
Nevertheless, I'm quite happy she's there. Not only she's apparently from the same species as my deceased one(related?), her web is right above where I buried her.
