>Dense cities are terrible! Eww we shouldn't make any more! Everyone should live in rural areas!

This is 100%, absolutely retarded if you want there to be more natural-use land. The denser we make cities, the more wilderness there is to go around, and the more available rural land is for /out/ types who really want it.

Yes, stop building mixed income bullshit apartments in the suburbs. Keep them all just south of downtown in their congested urban hellholes.
For scale purposes. Add 'Kowloon' to it.

The clear and obvious answer is that we need to get rid of about 4 billion people on this planet.
I don't want to get /pol/itical on this board but the removal of blacks from this Earth just seems like a net gain. But alas probably not possible
This would be 2 billion kryshtuns & 2 billion moslems who hate each other. Put them in the Sahara, give them all the guns ,tanks, ammo, missles they want - no food, no water ,no nukes and turn them loose on each other. In 3 or 4 days they are all where they say they want to spend eternity anyway.
.......and for those of us who like it here on Earth ,we have population down to 3 billion or so. Somewhat manageable.

Does anyone have sympathy for him?

The guy did a terrible job at living but at least he lived. A lot of people don’t even try. Maybe he’s not a hero but he’s a human being like myself who did the best he could as he saw things and didn’t settle for what others said was best. I respect that even if he was incompetent. That pasta is funny but underscores my point; that life is way cooler than if he’d just stayed at home and played racing videogames. People idolize him because he had initiative they do not.

I get that impression, but how is he different from someone who drinks or smokes himself to death?
He was incredibly determined and went after his lifelong dream, which is somewhat admirable, if not short-sighted. a lot more than some people can say, I suppose

Greg Hastings or something? Vaguely recall seeing it. Never played. Did see the movie Blackballed. Some comedy about paintball that I think had the bald guy Lou from Hot Tub Time Machine.
My dick utterly throbs over all those weird game types. Had a stupid simple one when people were low ammo. Civil War. Basically just taking turns in lines shooting each other, then getting closer. Or one I loved where each team had a medic. I was always willing to stand up, and get pelted if the medic could give immortality keeping a hand on you.
I think most the old brands markers I knew are pretty much gone. I think Tippmann still around, and maybe Spyder or Empire or whatever. But the last time I went I didn't recognize fuck all for markers there.
I work at a paintball site, and yeah Tippman is what we use as the cheap rental guns.It's alright, but I prefer airsoft, purely because airsoft works better with my style of play (which involves carrying a shotgun (or if its VERY up close, a sword) on my back and a bayonet on my rifle). You just can't beat a full frontal assault bayonet charge.
Funny. I paintballed, and friends and I played with nerf swords, some shields, and other melee shenanigans all the time. I'd say Tippmann is still the trusty old brand everyone knows, and used once. Hell I'd still be using an old Tippmann pump if I was playing. Never got rid of my gear.
Did always think the dick waving between airsoft, and paintball was dumb. They're niche enough to be in danger of dying. Bitching about each other was just dumb.
>I think most the old brands markers I knew are pretty much gone.

Because smartparts sued everyone out of business when their patent on their “electronic marker”. Every major label got sued at the team from Viking, WDP(Angel), DYE, to Boblong. It was a huge mess and Dynasty ended up having to leave WDP and played for Smartparts as part of a settlement. Fuck SP.
Wow my typos are fucking horrid. Sorry, I was doing 3 things at once. This was back in 03-04. When Smartparts got approved on their patent they basically had a legal team ready and turned the market on its ear. The shocker also because amazingly popular due to its smaller profile and between those 2 things it became hard for companies to keep up. A lot of popular companies closed their doors because of it. The politics of it were also really draining. I remember back in 06 I was 18 and wanted to buy a V-Force profiler from Nation Paintball but they only had yellow ones and when I asked why they all looked at me like I was a fucking retard because apparently their contract went out and I, being a player, was apparently supposed to just know this stuff. I didn’t. Didn’t care and didn’t buy anything from their stand. I do miss some of the stuff but it was just drama and drama doesn’t stay in business.

If you talking about plantar wart then you just have to wait it out my 2 went away after 3 months if you cant wait grab some wart freezer stuff
Mine lasted about 4 months. there's not much you can do. Its sorta like a broken rib which I've also had. Mine bothered me most the first 30 minutes after I woke up in the morning.
Try to stay mellow with it and eventually it heals & you can function better.
You know damn well you cant "/thread" your own post.
Not 100% certain that I had PF but the symptoms sure indicated so, and that I had it for several years. A coworker was diagnosed by a doctor with it and he told me I had it. Tried several different insoles, but no relief. Anyway, I stopped wearing dress shoes with heels to work and switched to comfy walking shoes. Took more than four months for it to go away, but it did and never has returned. Good luck with yours.

Don't use it for a year as it takes up to a year to heal that disorder. Though I have a stick I use to take weight off of it while walking around. It's usually just one foot. I think I have gout in the other one ironically though. Joint issue in one, tendon in the other.. I knew I should have commit suicide when I was sixteen.

Alright, what is the best way to get rid of these fuckers - I found their burrow which I have easy access to. I just want to know the cheapest and most effective way to get rid of them.

1.) Trap and shoot them with an air gun? I live in a residential neighborhood so firing a 12 gauge wouldn't go well. My next door neighbor got a couple in his yard with a pellet gun, but he also said the bigger ones just shrug it off. I don't mind spending $150 for something I can get at Bass Pro or Walmart. Cage is also going to cost me as well. Looking at like $250, lots of watching and waiting, which I really don't have the time for.

2.) Smoke them out? There's a bunch of carbon monoxide ones on Amazon. I'm not too sure if this is a good idea since I don't know if they tunneled next to my foundation and exterior wall, and I don't want that shit getting in my house. Is there anything else

3.) Hippie bullshit? All this stuff about hot peppers and sulfur and piss-soaked rags. I'm fine if something works, and I can just gravel up the hole once I know they are gone.

Just wanted to keep this going for anyone interested. Just got a dinghy of my own and have been practicing my seamanship on the weekends while tending to her on weekdays. Either plan trying to navigate her from one boat launch to another along the coast of the island I live on or practicing my recovery after staging some capsizes in a shallow bay nearby. Any other drills or exercises you guys do to become better sailors?

OP here. Hopefully some inspiration for dudes who want to learn how to sail. Had to come to terms with the fact that I couldnt actually learn to sail from just reading about it soon after I posted this thread. Tried launching out of a my local marina and ended up stuck on a barrier and had to flounder for a bit while a bunch of people watched. It was very embarrassing, but one old guy told me to come down there on Thursdays and volunteer to race. Did what he told me and for a month I raced under the same skipper. Taught me a lot of stuff. Because I stuck with it I just accomplished my goal of taking my boat from one marina to the next town over's pier last weekend. On the way back I sailed back into the same marina I couldnt even get out of a month a go wing and wing, jib over the portside and main over the starboard. As I slowly made my way to the pier and the nearby Navy base began to play colors in the distance I felt like a real salt and swelled with pride. Dont let failure deter you. This is a tough sport to get into, especially if you never did it growing up. Network a bit and see if you can get an in with your local sailing community. From what I've seen most racing leagues are always in need of a few spare deckhands.
It's current year. They hate homeless people as much as hitler hated work shy people and gypsies. BUms often live in boats, but it's a rich person hobby too, so they freak the fuck out extra hard. Also, boats being cheap and also expensive doesn't help the drama.
That's the way to do it. I started learning like that 10 years ago and now own 1/3 of a racer cruiser. Sailing is complicated and if you get it wrong the consequences can be severe.

Another good point is that there are lots of ageing skippers who are looking for good crew. If you don't have money then hard work can go a long way.

Ultimately if you want to own a boat it is a lot of money unless you want to own a rotting floating trailer.

>they're all Christian
Anon, maybe you haven't heard of the enlightenment and modernism but by today's standards "God is dead". Most western countries are apathetic to the idea of God and are irreligious by majority. Even then, I never argued that there weren't bad Christian people. I was stating that saying "American and European environmentalism is probably unrelated to Christianity" is a completely false statement as they are very much related because of resurgent academics and early Christian environmentalists.
>the greeks
I misspoke when I said they invented rationalism, but aristotelanism and platos dialogues would've been lost to time had it not been preserved by Catholics. Scholasticism, and by extention academia, was entirely produced by Chritian theologians. This is due to the fact that scholasticism was founded in the combination of Catholic theology and their interest in studying historical rhetoric and dialogue. I also specifically included the debt Christendom has to Islam for their advances in mathematics and astronomy.
>Muslim Africa
This issue is very complex, North Africa is Muslim and for the most part is doing well alongside countries with positive colonial relations which are Christian. There's no denying that it is also because of the international interest in the continent, that it's central landscape has been raped by political strife and purposefully stunted economic development. Not all nations in Africa have the same demographics, religious diaspora and political stability anon.
>According to the 2019 Eurobarometer survey about Religiosity in the European Union Christianity is the largest religion in the European Union accounting 64% of the EU population
>The most popular religion in the U.S. is Christianity, comprising the majority of the population (73.7% of adults in 2016)

The west isn't even irreligious by plurality. It is solidly majority Christian. And surely these percentages are not following an *upward* historical trend, both by my own imagination and by your assertion that everyone is abandoning religion in the modern day.

>I was stating that saying "American and European environmentalism is probably unrelated to Christianity" is a completely false statement as they are very much related because of resurgent academics and early Christian environmentalists.
Again, selection bias. I will not argue that Christian doctrine does not advocate care of the environment. Just that the correlation between Western Christianity and environmentalism cannot be so easily proven to be *causal*.

>Muslim Africa
Let me quote you verbatim.
>Or are you referring to the war torn Africa, whose economy and prosperity has been stripped down because of atheistic and greed-driven ideologies? Even then Africa is predominantly Muslim, and still prosperous in the north west (look at Morocco and Senegal). Where does the wealth of Europe come from, a place that pales in comparison to the resource rich Africa, if not from the Church's long tithing and teaching? Abrahamic religions are driven towards education and are surrounded by wealth (different from greed because it is used differently), with the exception of those who pervert theology, because sublimity is intellectually stimulating.

Nothing I said about Africa was contradictory anon, the continent is huge and people began perverting theology for conquest and pillaging well before colonial Africa. Most of the damage we see today was caused by the propaganda machine of the ussr and third worldist rhetoric telling Africans to kill white people. Most African animosity comes from europeans who valued resources and wealth more than human life which is a tragedy and immoral by Christian virtue.
>environmentalism cannot be so easily proven to be *causal*
Muir, Thoreau, Emerson, etc all founding fathers of the school of ecophilosophy founded their views through the sublimity of God. The first laws discussing animal treatment, biodiversity, and sustainable agriculture were seen in early Jewish law. This isn't a correlation, environmentalism was created by God-fearing people who knew their purpose as stewards.
They live in Russia and settle remote areas, plant pine trees?
The Amish?
Religion and money are the two reasons you'd likely want to leave society in the first place.
