The "Very Short Introduction" series is such a great way to deepen your understanding of a topic in relatively little time.

I am currently reading Galileo: A Very Short Introduction, written by Stillman Drake, and I am amazed about what I have already learned. I have always had an interest in astronomy, and I had a pretty general knowledge of Galileo's accomplishments. That being said, this book corrects the common misconception that Galileo's research was driven by antagonism for the Catholic Church. In reality, Galileo thought that philosopher's (like Aristotle) could not provide true understandings of nature; he thought that only science of measurement and observation could reveal the laws of nature. Galileo was a fairly devout catholic, and the Church didn't take any action against him until many of the philosophers dragged the bible into the debate.

A mod's introduction to why we don't want pro-capitalist or pro-authority arguments in this sub

This was in response to a comment in our weekly free talk:

The whole world is overall authoritarian and capitalist. We listen to arguments like yours all the time, and they are embedded in the very way that most people live. On the other hand we have already engaged with them and done a lot of work to build up our world view, and your engagements are forcing us to talk about basic first principles that we want to be able to take for granted in our conversations.

Sometimes, we want to just have conversations about our own ideas. The reality is, though to an outsider you see things as an echo chamber, there is a huge amount of disagreement among us about how we want things to look. We choose purposefully to have a space for conversations limited to a certain set of topics.

If you call a regular meeting with like-minded people to discuss how to resolve the issue of a new giant building development happening that will raise the floodplain and endanger your houses, but at the meeting there are people there who are derailing conversation by talking about why they actually think there's no issue with the floodplain rising, we would say, hey, that's not what this meeting is about, please stick on topic, and we have a weekly meeting already dedicated to that kind of question - r/Anarchy101. Others insist they want to have the development because of the jobs it will bring, and we simply don't want to deal with those arguments when we know the development in fact will reduce jobs by destroying local businesses - even before we talk about the huge amount of other issues we have with the giant development (gentrification, whatever), and actually we have made a meeting space for you to discuss that if you want - r/DebateAnarchism. Then they complain that we are an echochamber and insist that they want to talk about their thing during our meeting about another topic.

In reality, we get dozens if not hundreds of people every week like you trying to talk about stuff we have not made the space specifically for. It's taxing telling you all one by one why we do what we do, so we make a rule.

Even more simply, If a group of people who love dungeons and dragons come together in their own space to play dungeons and dragons, and people (constantly) crash the party to insist we play settlers of catan, asking why we won't play their game and insisting that we should, we would just say, hey,

(Spoilers Extended) Unadapted: How Little of FEAST and DANCE Ended Up in GAME OF THRONES, Introduction: Jeyne Westerling

##Intro

In 2012, I had just finished Game of Thrones, Season Two, and I sat down to dinner with my brother. There, I excitedly told him about Game of Thrones and how excited I was for Season Three. He advised me to read the books, likening A Game of Thrones (the first book) to the director’s cut of the first season of Game of Thrones. So, I picked up the first book, well the audiobook, and read (listened) to it and came away agreeing that the first season of Game of Thrones was a quite faithful adaptation of of A Game of Thrones.

For that matter, George RR Martin thought the adaptation of A Game of Thrones was faithful, telling Indigo Blog in 2011:

> The HBO series has been amazing but it’s a separate thing. The HBO series is not influencing the books. The book is influencing the HBO series. They’ve done a very faithful adaptation.

Of course, even in Season One, there were divergences from the source material. Minor characters were excised, dream and vision sequences removed, battle scenes cut and minor characters airbrushed out. But, by and large, George and fans were pleased by the adaptation done by Game of Thrones.

Season One, though, was the highpoint of faithfully adapting A Song of Ice and Fire into Game of Thrones. Each successive season widened the divide between the books and the show -- though the first three to four seasons remained fairly faithful to A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings and A Storm of Swords. However, by Seasons Five and Six, something changed with the adaptation of A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons.

That's what this new series is about: analyzing how Feast and Dance were adapted in Game of Thrones. And by adapted, I mostly mean unadapted. The idea here is to explore the major plots, subplots and characters to analyze the differences and similarities by medium. This provides a pathway to talk about The Winds of Winter in the concluding piece of this series to explore how much (or little) of what was featured in Game of Thrones Seasons Six and Seven will be in Winds.

To give a window into this Unadapted series, we're going to talk about a character who was most prominent in A Storm of Swords, only appearing in one chapter in Feast/Dance: Jeyne Westerling.

That being said, this is not a shit-on-the-show series. Adaptation is

YSK high school history classes are only ever meant to serve as a basic introduction to your nation's history and you should not be so shocked when you learn later that it left a lot of stuff out

Whenever a historical event gets brought up, either on the internet or irl, one of the most common phrases you'll hear from someone is "I never got taught this in history class!", usually followed by an enraged sense of having been misled or even lied to.

Just a reminder: History is a ridiculously big subject and it is completely absurd to expect your high-school history class to give you a full insight into every facet of it. This is true even of those curriculums that focus almost entirely on national history (history pertaining to the nation you currently reside in). There's simply too much there to squeeze it all in. Nuance has to be almost completely scrapped for the sake of brevity and clarity. Entire events have to be regulated to a single footnote or not even mentioned at all. It's unfortunate but unavoidable.

If you have an actual interest in history, be it a general interest or just about a specific event, then the onus is entirely on you to learn more about it. Go to a bookstore or browse the Amazon ebook store, check out the history section and pick something that appeals to you. If you prefer audiobooks or podcasts then there are plenty of those as well to choose from. You might even be amazed to realize just how fascinating history can be when you're free to choose what subjects you want. You could even try branching out to other countries or parts of the world and learning about their histories as well. There's really no end to the subject and you can still learn new things about something even after years of learning about it.

So, keep that in mind next time someone mentions something in history that you were completely unaware of. it's probably not entirely the fault of your educational system. Also, try not to get pissed at foreigners for not knowing much about your nation's history, they probably have plenty of their own stuff to cover and it's even more absurd to expect them to cover yours as well (even if your nations share some history).

Why YSK: Human history is a very big subject and it can be easy to not realize that when you don't know much about it to begin with. Knowing and understanding it better can lead to a person having a far better grasp on why the world is the way it is.

All of jungle's issues stem from the introduction of scuttle crab

Adding so much gold and map impact in the form of scuttle crab has only hurt the jungle role.

  • Forces any truly viable jungler to be able to contest the 1st scuttle which severely limits the number of meta junglers
  • Comes onto map far too early in the game for its impact on the junglers XP/gold gain
  • Forces solo-q coordination to contest scuttles, leading to flaming if the jungler's pathing isn't worked around
  • Locks down an area of the map with artificial vision which is hugely gold-valuable
  • Dis-incentivizes any early-ganking junglers as they are giving up guaranteed scuttle gold

I have seen more mental collapse from teams in games from silver to diamond due to scuttle fights level 3/4 than any other cause. A jungler shouldn't have his game ruined because his solo laners did not roam for his objective, and likewise a solo laner shouldn't have their game ruined by roaming for an over-forced scuttle contest by their jungler. This is a snowball-more, too-valuable objective that is placed on the map far too early in the game.

Possible solution: literally delete it and move the gold and XP back to camps, increase camp HP if you want. This allows heavy gankers to know their gold/xp is still 'safe' in their jungle, just delayed. The full clear jungler will still enter the map at a gold and XP advantage.

TL;DR: scuttle is too strong and on map too early, forces viable jungle pool to contest, forces lanes to play to jungle's gameplan, 'early skirmish objective' is shoehorned in and scuttle is a bad asnwer to that

A character saying they dislike rapists in their introduction is not only bland but also unneeded.

First and foremost, I'm not saying we shouldn't dislike rapists. Or anything like that.

I always see the most generic of introductions, especially when it's genin introductions.

Here is one I just saw. It came from a neglect fic.

>"My name is Namikaze-Uzumaki Naruto. I like home cooked simple food, foxes and people. I hate wars, traitors, rapists, junk food, throwing weapons and unnecessary fighting. I wish to bring the world into an era of peace."

You don't need to include rapists in that list. Everyone normal would have a disliking to rapists. I just think it's unneeded. Its like telling everyone my disliked are, murders, rapists, child abusers and whatnot."

Or if an Akimichi says they like food. Like ok? That's to be expected of them. Not at all interesting. An Akimichi say they dislike eating would be the total opposite.

Basic stuff that a majority people would hate. It sounds cliched and makes the character looks bland for expressing such generic/expected dislikes. Like they couldn't mention any other thing they dislike.

Naruto's dislike for cup ramen taking 3 minutes is better off than a character saying they dislike rapists. Oh wow, you hate rapists? What a surprise. Again, who wouldn't hate such people?

A ninja saying they dislike throwing weapons would he more interesting to think about or delve into than someone who dislike child abuser. I mean, who doesn't hate them?

And the fact so many fics do this. And there are fics where the entire team practically does this, sharing their generic dislikes.

Once again, I'm not saying having these dislikes is a problem. It's just that you don't need to tell me that you dislike rapists, murders or people like them.

If you go up to someone and tell them you hate rapists, I doubt they would be surprised to hear that.

Edit: As others mentioned, if you say something like, "Hi, I'm Naruto Uzumaki? I like ramen but I hate rapists." That doesn't sound natural at all. Like its a bot that's talking.

Heroin Wizards: An Introduction to Sludge Metal and Doing Hard Drugs

This is where I would put an interesting and/or clever intro, but I'm not much of a writer. I’m here to talk to y’all about sludge. Even in a more niche community like Shreddit, sludge seems to be one of the least discussed or upvoted styles of metal, at least in my anecdotal experience. (I’ve been a member here for nearly decade, and that is frightening to think about.) Sludge is also one of my favorite subgenres of metal. So, I figured I would give an introduction for those of you who may not be familiar with sludge and also dive into some of the finer details. You’ve probably heard it or at least heard of the genre before, but what is it?

If you don't wanna read all this shit like some nerd, here is a Spotify playlist that gives a good overview of the genre.


#Defining the Sound

The easiest way to describe sludge is traditional doom metal combined with hardcore punk. Think Sabbath riffs and tempos plus noisy hardcore. Sludge is characterized by the slower tempo and dreary atmosphere of doom and the occasional, fast tempo changes, lyrical themes, and overall raw/harsh sounds associated with hardcore punk. It’s not really surprising that many of the early (and even modern) sludge bands were punk bands before going sludge or had members who were active in hardcore bands. Sludge also integrates some aspects of noise rock in the guitar tone, use of harsh noise (feedback, distortion, and dissonance), and walls of sound.


#Stylistic Influences and Proto-Sludge - Early/Mid-Late 1980s

Sludge of course has its roots in doom metal but also draws heavily from hardcore punk, noise rock, post-punk, and no wave artists.

Flipper - Earthworm (1979) - Some experimental punk/noise rock that sounds a bit like what sludge would be. One of the earliest proto-sludge tracks I could find (this is nuts for 1979!!!)

Black Flag - Life of Pain (1981) Very doomy, slow, and fucked up hardcore. Not much else there is to say about it.

Saint Vitus - Saint Vitus (1982) One of the first bands to introduce punk influence to trad doom. Coincidentally, Saint Vitus was signed to SST Records and toured with an

Christmas Invasion is the best Doctor introduction story in new who

This is a take I've had for a while now, it's definitely unpopular given how much praise is given to stories like the eleventh hour. However I think Invasion is a much better story than eleventh hour or Rose/Deep Breath/Woman who fell to earth.

People bring up the fact that the Doctor only appears near the end of the story and use that as a basis to criticize it. I feel differently, since the episode builds up the sheer hopelessness of there situation brilliantly so the arrival of the Doctor is seen as triumphant by the audience. The ease with which he dispatches the Sycorax serves to visually indicate how competent and in control of the situation he is.

I also think that the fact that the writers could establish Tens character in such a limited timeframe is more a strength than a weakness of the episode.

This is the first episode of Doctor Who I ever watched so I might be somewhat biased but even on rewatch it holds up fantastically.

Critical Race Theory: A Brief Introduction.

This essay, with a few differences, was originally released on my blog, Transliberalism.


A few months back, I began hearing about a new threat to Western civilization and America: critical race theory. Unfortunately, everybody who was saying this was near the bottom of the list of people I’d trust to explain academic theory to me, so I decided to go read material from actual critical race theorists. What I found was way different than the boogeyman that I see tossed around from time to time.

I shared my findings, and got mixed reactions. Some people found it interesting. Others rejected the idea that we should learn about critical race theory from actual critical race theorists, instead suggesting we should focus on it β€œas it’s used,” presumably by college undergrad activists and people who make big bucks whipping up culture wars. My problem with this response is that people who say β€œcritical race theory is bad!” make absolutely no distinction between the works of theorists like KimberlΓ© Crenshaw and what an anonymous Maoist Twitter account has put out on the internet. Additionally, I have very little interest in frothing at the mouth about campus politics when I could be engaging with new and complex ideas. If you feel similarly, this essay is meant for you.

Here is a brief explanation of critical race theory, and how it relates to liberalism, to the best of my current knowledge.


To understand critical race theory, you need to first understand a little bit about critical theory and legal realism.

Critical Theory

Critical theory is a school of thought which aims to combine descriptive social analysis with a normative aim of increasing freedom and decreasing oppression and domination. In other words, critical theory aims to understand the world in a way that changes it for the better. It rejects separating out the normative and the descriptive, embracing them both simultaneously.

Bizarrely, critical theory is sometimes cast as morally and epistemically relativistic, saying that what’s good isn’t universally good and what’s true isn’t universally true, if there’s anything good or true at all. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Critical theory stands in strong ethical opposition to domination and oppression, and aims to find truth useful in ending it.

Legal Realism

Legal realism rejects the idea that justices primarily engage in objective and impartial analysis of the law. To a lega

Introduction to Nanozen : a plastic free, vegan products shop.

Hey!

The project:

My long term goal is to give the possibility to spend Nano on vegan, plastic free products. I hope to convince suppliers to accept Nano for a more transparent, ethical purchase process.

Some everyday products contain chemicals that require a lot of energy to make and are polluting. A good example are soap bottles : they are made of plastic and contain many unnatural chemicals. This is why the first product will be bar soaps. I'm looking to add solid toothpaste and solid shampoo next.

Living in France, it was quite easy to register a company containing only me for now. I will only be taxed on the benefits I make, which is good because there's no minimum tax to pay if I don't profit. Having a registered company is great for ordering big batches of products, at a fair price.

Nanozen only has one supplier for now. I'm focusing on getting the website, payment process, and shipping working. I will keep you updated !

For now I can ship to: France, Spain, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg through Mondial Relay. Looking to keep the shipping to West Europe for now.

Advancement:

The website is well on the way ! Will be very simple at fist thought, I'm learning html and javascript :D

The payment process seems complex to intergrate. Might look at https://nanojobs.space/jobs for help.

I'm always looking for new suppliers.

If you wish to help me get comfortable with shipping, some soaps are already for sale on Nanomart

Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoy the idea!

Misraaks had one of the best character introductions in the history of this game

This is an Eliksni who has been built up for YEARS as a character and now that we get to meet him, his official introduction is everything I could’ve asked for.

First off, his build up is spot on. He’s been a character (even if he was more of an extra) since D2 vanilla. The fact that we could spare him shows that Bungie had plans for this dude the second we met him. After that our first real interaction with him, the Zero Hour, shows him not just helping us out, but doing so against his own people, and even helped to set up Eramis in the process. After that we don’t hear much, until Beyond Light. He’s shown escorting defectors from House Salvation to safety, and we help him do so. By this point anyone who played knew he was coming in as a real character soon.

Every action he has taken since we met him (and canonically spared him) has been to our benefit, and the majority of the time it was in peaceful ways. Each moment we run into him, he is (skeptically) trusting of us, but once we see him in the first cutscene, there is one line that cements his character for everyone. When a refugee asks if he can trust us, Misraaks responds,

β€œI don’t, but the Light provides,”

And this is the root of his character. In some of his first words in game, it is clear where his identity lies. Despite not knowing wether we will help him or massacre his people, he puts his faith in the Great Machine (or traveler for you non-Eliksni) and shows devotion to the Light not seen in anyone but Guardians. (And even then he’s more devoted than some of our ranks)

This isn’t like other characters that appear out of nowhere, (or almost nowhere depending on how much lore you read) such as Caiatl, Nokris, or Panoptes. He has been deliberately built up for us, and with how Destiny’s story is improving leaps and bounds above what it was, Misraaks should be a benchmark for character development and introduction. Someone who we know, have met, and are able to understand the moment we see them formally introduced.
