Matcha is just a finely ground preparation of green tea that has an almost milky texture.

Every single burzum album I uploaded got DMCA'd. Going to wait to reupload them when I get some sort of other bright idea.

I had a feeling that was the case, I'm uploading most of the burzum discography because I saw that nothing was available, I'll put the links in the audiofile and hopefully they will stay up until we come up with a permanent solution.

As time allows I'll upload whatever I have that is missing and post it, I don't know who else is active in the audiofile, but if someone else is working on a solution and needs assistance I'm willing to help.

Mediafire is losing more and more content daily, I'm leaning towards either an active dc++ room or a private torrent. I'm pretty sure that a lot of the DLA needs to be reworked at this point because of all of the pages that have been axed. Someone needs to make a decision as to where the DLA will be hosted and in what capacity.


edit: Some important pages are completely fucked (burzum) while others are mostly unscathed. I do think we could get away with putting up files with titles using only consonants, but I'm not convinced that this is really all that secure.

The historical Greeks considered the practice of adult and child sacrifice barbarous. However, exposure of newborns was widely practiced in ancient Greece. In Greece the decision to expose a child was typically the father's, although in Sparta the decision was made by a group of elders. Exposure was the preferred method of disposal, as that act in itself was not murder; moreover, the exposed child technically had a chance of being rescued by the gods or any passersby.This very situation was a recurring motif in Greek mythology.


 If the husband accepted it, it would live, but if he refused it, it would die. Babies would often be rejected if they were illegitimate, unhealthy or deformed, the wrong sex (female for example), or too great a burden on the family. These babies would not be directly killed, but put in a clay pot or jar and deserted outside the front door or on the roadway. In ancient Greek religion, this practice took the responsibility away from the parents because the child would die of natural causes, for example hunger, asphyxiation or exposure to the elements.

In some periods of Roman history it was traditional for a newborn to be brought to the pater familias, the family patriarch, who would then decide whether the child was to be kept and raised, or left to die by exposure. The Twelve Tables of Roman law obliged him to put to death a child that was visibly deformed. The concurrent practices of slavery and infanticide contributed to the "background noise" of the crises during the Republic.

In the High Middle Ages, abandoning unwanted children finally eclipsed infanticide. Unwanted children were left at the door of church or abbey, and the clergy was assumed to take care of their upbringing. This practice also gave rise to the first orphanages.

In Kamchatka, babies were killed and thrown to the dogs. American explorer George Kennan noted that among the Koryaks, a Mongoloid people of north-eastern Siberia, infanticide was still common in the 19th century. One of the twins was always sacrificed.

Since feudal Japan the common slang for infanticide was "mabiki" (間引き) which means to pull plants from an overcrowded garden. A typical method in Japan was smothering through wet paper on the baby's mouth and nose. Mabiki persisted in the 19th century and early 20th century.

I can fully understand you not wanting to put your kid to death, it's a severe cultural taboo nowadays. Obviously part of a brave new world means we will have different cultural practices and it sounds to me like we won't be capable of supporting defectives until the world is far less populated.

The biggest voices against infanticide in the past were Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. I'm under the impression that most can agree that none of those viewpoints lead to a healthy society in the long term.

You can revere life and still understand that you need to pick weeds to make room for your food to grow. It's very basic mathematics, you have enough w to grow x of y, if you let too much of z utilize your w than you will not have enough w to sustain any y.

y = w-z/x

I'll only go so far as to cite the pagan practices that were prevalent throughout the Norse people;

"Putting the child on the knee of the father confirmed his or her status as a member of the clan and bestowed the rights connected to this status. The child could no longer be killed, or exposed by the parents, without its being considered murder. Exposing children was a socially accepted way of limiting the population. The belief that deities were present during childbirth suggests that people did not regard the woman and the child as excluded from normal society as was the case in later, Christian, times and apparently there were no ideas about female biological functions being unclean."

"In his book Germania, Tacitus wrote that the ancient Germanic tribes enforced a similar prohibition. He found such mores remarkable and commented: "[The Germani] hold it shameful to kill any unwanted child." Modern scholarship differs. John Boswell believed that in ancient Germanic tribes unwanted children were exposed, usually in the forest. "It was the custom of the [Teutonic] pagans, that if they wanted to kill a son or daughter, they would be killed before they had been given any food." Usually children born out of wedlock were disposed that way."

All life is not sacred, even one of the biggest modern proponents of the sacredness of life (the Dalai Lama) doesn't believe it as you seem to assume.

I recently got to meet members of a homegrown fiber, weaving, dyeing group and it felt pretty fucking cool. I'd been trying to apply my subpar knowledge towards solving my own needs for local made textiles and knits so that I could achieve my own goal of only owning clothes that I had handmade from as close to seed to garment as possible.

The really cool part is that they understand that you cannot expect the exact same yield of cotton each year so sometimes that means you have to settle on using wool for your fabric needs for that year. I'm looking forward to the fabric samples we receive and getting the opportunity to learn a lot from this collective so that I will have the skills and knowledge on how to clothe my own tribe of hessian/like minded ubermensch.

Utilize your mottainai as a tool for strengthening conservation and full use of the tools at your disposal without wasting anything.

(No clue if this should go in this thread, but I feel the concepts are well within the scope of discussion.)

If you are of sound mind to recognize everything is falling to shit you can use your sound mind to create/build/repair your country. I'm not trying to pretend it is an easy task, but if you immigrate somewhere else you won't really fit in unless that place you to move is liberal and takes immigrants with wide open arms.

Don't be a pussy, embrace the riddle of steel and start cramming the shitty truth down people's vapid face holes.

I paint denim back together with needle and thread.

I am lacking a before picture, but I think most people can conjure a mental image of a blown open rear pocket.

Why is everyone so literal? Kill off the >120s =/= genocide.

It is a strawman meme for applied eugenics. You could apply it as direct murder of the affected groups, or you could think and realize it makes more sense to achieve that goal through a selective breeding program that didn't allow those of subpar genetics/intelligence/character to have 8 children, 40 grandchildren, and 200 great grandchildren.

As for biblical values... Conservative/Traditional values that happen to share an overlap with traditional values held by SOME Christians doesn't make them inherently Christian.

Gay bashing? Where did you pull that from? You can state that you would prefer to not have gays parading their sexuality in the street and forcing into everyone else's lives and still think they are decent people.

I'm assuming your anti-women sentiment came from something crow said, to which I'd suggest to bring it up directly with him, because I'm certain you misunderstood him.
