Are there any contests and/or competitions that you've recently either been a part of or have closely observed that you still think about?

Is there anything on your 'bucket list' that you'd like to engage in at least once sometime, matching your wits against others' efforts?

I actually personally DON'T want to ever try ostrich racing competitions, but this photograph is just so strangely peculiar that I can't help but post it.

Well, can't obviously say too many details for NDA sake. But in the most general sense, while everyone was trying to combine two things, i suggested we throw them both out and start from scratch. Which is a bold idea when we are in super cost cutting mode! But these things are so fucking incompatible that we'd end up saving time trying to rebuild. At least that's the way i'm presenting it! People are hesitantly onboard, but i have much more to prove about the idea if i really want to get everyone in on it.

In the movies, a mad mans brain was used for Frankenstein's monster because Fritz dropped a healthy brain and had to substitute for a mad mans brain. When the monster awoke it did not know how to speak and had a rather infantile and limited understanding of it's surroundings.
I often wonder, who was the man that brain belonged to. Did the monster remember who he was before his new body? Why did this brain relapse it's information?
It's the same in MAry Shelly's book. The brain is simply collected and used with no explanation who the brain formerly belonged to.

The only attempt of the brains origin was the 1994 movie where the brain belonged to Victor's former mentor Doctor Waldman which allowed the monster to retain some coherent speech and memories.

Has anyone else wondered who the brain of Frankenstein was in life?

Even the "death" of the monster is left obscure, that it simply wondered the North Pole until it met it's end. Though I've seen some creative sequels of the monster being found frozen but due to the unnatural biology it is in a stasis-like sleep that just frozen to death.

But yes, whenever be the book or the movies, a brain must had been required for the monster to be alive.. But not only does the brain assure function of the entire body but it also allows the body to be conscious, to remember and to have personality.

So whenever a take on Frankenstein is shown having a brain put in, I always wonder who did that brain belong to in life.

Here's another conundrum, in the film a brain of a criminal was used, while the monster was aggressive it's violence stem from either ignorance (throwing the girl in the water due to his observation of seeing the flowers float) to self-defense (angry mobs) but other than that was rather complaisant and even in Bride of Frankenstein able to make a friend, learn basic grasp of the language from his friend and even was negotiable. While the fact he held Elizabeth hostage which would of been an "evil" thing to do, it could be he was influenced by Doctor Septimus Pretorius to do so.
So here's the thing... would he behave any differently if they "healthy" brain was put in instead of the criminal brain? Maybe the monsters body was the right proportions and chemicals that made the criminal brain more sane? Who knows.

>>1129388
The fact that the monster is sympathetic to a great degree and never does anything that you'd judge as like well thought out and intentional criminality does make the whole plot point about having 'the wrong brain' rather pointless.

 No.1129390

>>1129389
It could be as you said given the brain was deceased (and pickled) being rebooted may means it's memories were wiped, but the movie exemplified that the criminal brain was physically different from the normal brain as if implying that something should of happened because of these differences.

It's either that or the reason why that criminal brain did not make the monster criminal could be the body was practical for such a brain to nullify the criminal aspects.

Though whenever criminal behavior is caused by deformities in the brain, I imagine better off asking a psychology, biologist or brain-expert on that grey matter.

A topical thread.

I always remember this bit from Adventure Time
and it kind of raising an interesting question in how much people need to take care of their appearance and choose their lothes for stuff they do.

Like, if you arrive at work or in school. Or if you go out on a date, or just to treat yourself on some dinner made by other people.
Or when you go for a jog or a walk outside.

Or if you just decide to buy a new pack of bread, or toilet paper.

Do you care much for what you're wearing when you go outside or even at home?

You know, TTRPGs like D&D have been a frequently recurring hyperfocus for me for like, the past 25 years.

The coordination necessary to get games together and to GM them was always hell on ADHD and social phobia issues so no matter how many times I get the itch for the full D&D experience ... I eventually burn myself out before I can really get into a routine and have fun with it.

I would very much love to play a TTRPG and really get into it cause it's always looked fun and interesting but I just haven't been able to, like, at all.

Yeah Boris Johnson is just as bad as Liz, but he lasted so long as Prime Minister because he knew how to fake it.

I believe there's going to be another election for a new Prime Minister and he came back from his holiday thinking he can just simply continue where he left off while the chair is still warm from where Truss was sitting.

I don't know enough about politics to weigh in all this but I heard Jeremy Corbyn. I dunno enough about him other than he was very favoured by the people, won awards for human rights activist and other positive things.

But the thing is, UK government is so contrive that politicians with genuine good intentions have more of a harder time getting into power than the usual corrupt ones. If Jeremy Corbyn ever became Prime Minister it's likely he'll be the subject of smear campaign.

Green Party is another example. They promote environmentalism and progressive social reform. It wants to create a system of proportional representation for British elections. Yet they've always been regarded the butt of political jokes given they usually have the least votes.

So saturday evening, i got a tiny little tickle in my throat, and a super mild cough. i decided "i'll go to bed, and if it's still there, i'll go ahead and take a test"

so sunday morning, i still feel a tad ill. and i take a test. after prodding my nose, with the swab, and waited. and after 15 minutes, i think i'm fine... except... there was a veeeeeeeeeerry faint line. like i was wondering if it was actually a line or not.

Erring on the side of caution, i decided to get a second opinion. I scheduled an appointment.

time came, and i had to drive about half an hour to the destination, which was a walgreens drivetru. in line, there was several cars, and each took a looooong time to do their thing.

i got to the walgreens at 2:15, and got to the window at 2:45. still, they accepted me, and gave me the test. I prodded my nose again, and handed it back to them

then i drove back home. and when i got back. I had an email saying "YOUR RESULTS ARE IN!!!" and with bated breath, i open it

and well... you see the image...

so yeah. my 3 year covid free streak has been combo b-b-b-b-broken!

I wasn't really being serious but hey, go for it if you want to. Though if you feel like adding an extra layer so it's not just stealing content, you could have them act out the stories or whatever that you "get inspiration from". This space is getting saturated so a gimmick like that is probably required to punch through the crowd anyway.

Yeah he's pretty cool. I wouldn't be surprised if he makes it semi-big, if he keeps up the 30s sketch idea.

In vaguely medically related news, the modifications to the astronaut helmet are basically complete and we're past even the duct tape stage. I just did a full inhalation session for the dog and it's brilliant. The dog is finally no longer scared or angry, just resigned - and so the inhalation session is just her lying there relatively peacefully with the fogged-up helmet on rather than the constant fight to keep a stream aimed at her face. Good stuff.

Are there any holidays that in particular you just don't care about at all, to the point where it all slides off you like rain going over a particular roof?

I'm thinking about it given how polarizing Halloween is not just in the U.S. but in the general 'Anglosphere', what with so many individuals not caring for anything 'spooky'. Which I get. I really do... horror media is kind of weird when you think about it logically, since why would you want to see damaging things happening to others where you intentionally get yourself flustered? Yet you can say similar about whatever else people just like for no reason.

Thoughts?

october has historically been a bad month for me. the worst days of my life were in october, plus it's fall and it starts getting cold and snowy, and stays that way for a long time. so by proxy, halloween has never been a highlight for me

plus as a kid, i never really understood why halloween was peoples prefered holiday. you didn't get the day off of school, and unlike christmas, the best you get is candy, and you have to walk around in the dark and cold to do that.

nowadays, i'm trying to reclaim my appreciation for the holiday and the season around it. but you asked the question, so i gave my honest answer.

i also don't like mothers day, but that's for personal reasons

I don't really care about any holidays. I don't celebrate them because I like them, I only do it because the people around me do. Holidays are just another day for me, personally.

It's extremely uncomfortable to me that a meaningless attack by political protesters on a painting that's already protected so that nothing will happen gets an order of magnitude more attention than like... political protesters literally murdering somebody in cold-blood or similar situations.

I mean like look at this one news story:

> https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/migrants-survived-shooting-west-texas-detained-weeks-immigration-offic-rcna52996

There's probably not a single individual on this website besides me that's heard of this (and it's not even something that I would hear about inherently other than I'm a weird person who likes to follow local/state media). Why is that? Why is mere property valued as more important than literal human lives in terms of media attention? Why are political activists pushing their agenda treated so differently in ways that have nothing to do with logical sense?
