From another perspective, that's actually a horrendous problem. All that wildlife hanging on the thread of that one country keeping on accepting it, resisting rolling over it to expand, and not doing anything else to screw it. At least some of it should be duplicated to somewhere else for the sake of security. Let's say, to some place that has already anhialated its original ecosystem. Or to an artificial island somewhere. That'll send a message to anyone relishing the prospect of doing horrific damage ecological damage.

It's a nice place to visit! Living, maybe not so much. But after being marooned in the states for like a year, I do miss the food a lot.

>I go and look at the insane food and wet markets on google street view from time to time.

Yeah, I would say that the markets are nice. They're quite crowded though. There's one near me called the Ladies' Market that sells a LOT of bootleg shit (pic related). I think it's actually become a tourist attraction in recent years.

>I want to find an little old hong kong lady and bring her treats and gifts and a bunch of ingredients and ask her to cook something for me.

Never tried this myself, but they're usually nice in my experience! The best jar of fish sauce I've ever had was a gift from a little old lady in a street market at 2 AM. Tried finding her again but she was gone the next week :(

Anyways, I'm glad to hear that people are interested in Hong Kong! Sad that Kowloon is still the forgotten sister, but I'd be happy to answer any questions you have.

Anonymous 116313

Nta but I’m so sad they handed HK back to China as it means I can no longer stay there indefinitely as a British person. You’re so lucky to live there anon!

Despite that, I’d love to learn Cantonese. I like that they use the superior traditional characters. It seems that there are hardly any Cantonese resources though and you have to just learn a tutor.

Do you speak Cantonese anon? How is it taught there, even for mother tongue speakers?

Anonymous 116334

I do! I’m not too sure what you mean by “how” it’s taught, but learning Cantonese has become a kind of political issue recently. I think most young kids are taught Mandarin now, and most subjects are taught in Mandarin.

>It seems that there are hardly any Cantonese resources though and you have to just learn a tutor.

Yeah, Cantonese is pretty difficult to learn for native English speakers. Especially speaking: there are 9 tones while Mandarin has like 4. You will unfortunately always have a heavy accent. But in terms of resources, I use a flashcard program called Anki for learning other languages. It’s super useful, and quite popular for learning kanji. Could work well for learning traditional characters :3

> You’re so lucky to live there anon!

Thank you! The city does have its problems though, especially with China being in control lol. I do wish Britain was still in control. Getting a citizenship also requires you to live there for 8 years, so it’s a huge commitment.

Anonymous 116340

>I’m not too sure what you mean by “how” it’s taught
Sorry, I wasn’t clear. I meant do you use Cantonese textbooks to learn the grammar properly there? Or everyone just learns from speaking to their parents? If you use textbooks, which ones?

I’m Scottish and everyone in Scotland speaks some level of Scots but it isn’t taught in schools and all the classes are in English. I’m wondering if you pick up Cantonese outside of school or whether you actually study it properly and have all your classes in Cantonese.

Oh, and I already speak some Japanese so that’s why I like Cantonese as the characters are the same but Cantonese has some of it’s own special ones, right?

Anonymous 116352

Ohh, that makes sense. I can't speak for too many others, but I learned mostly from my grandparents. My grandma taught me grammar and writing while my grandpa taught me mostly how to yell and swear at people. I'm sure that there are textbooks somewhere, though.

>Oh, and I already speak some Japanese so that’s why I like Cantonese as the characters are the same but Cantonese has some of it’s own special ones, right?

Yes, there are written cantonese-exclusive characters. A lot of Japanese characters look similar to traditional characters, but they're pronounced differently and often have different meanings. Japanese characters are often "squigglier". I guess having some experience with kanji could be helpful.

> I’m wondering if you pick up Cantonese outside of school

Depends on what you mean by "pick up". I know that some of my friends learn/practice by watching old cantonese movies/shows (I can recommend you some good ones, if you like). To read and write really well you need to study it a lot. It's easier to learn with a teacher though, like with mandarin. But I know that, since English is a very common language here, many people mix English and Cantonese in their sentences. So if you forget some words, just say it in English and people should understand. Can't say the same for the other way around :p

Oh, and what do you mean by "some level of Scots"? Do you speak like Gaelic there? Or like a special dialect of English?

Anonymous 116357

>I can recommend you some good ones, if you like
Yes please!

>Oh, and what do you mean by "some level of Scots"? Do you speak like Gaelic there? Or like a special dialect of English?

Scots a language/dialect (depending who you ask) that is similar to English but with Scottish pronunciations and words. Some of the grammar is different too. It’s mostly spoken on the east coast and in the south. There is Ulster Scots in Northern Ireland but I don’t think it is that common.

Gaelic is a separate language spoken on the west coast of Scotland and in Ireland (also known as Irish). I’m from the east coast so I don’t speak any Gaelic but I wish I did.

What language did you mostly speak in school? English or Mandarin?

Anonymous 116467

Sorry nonas, I'm pretty stupid. I kind of meant that most people refer to the island of Hong Kong (which is separated by the Victoria Harbor) when they talk about HK. Kowloon is more of the mainland. It's cheaper to live here than on the island by a few thousand. Rent is still stupid expensive though. There are apartments that are like 80 square feet.

>Is not a neighbourhood of HK?
Kowloon is a peninsula. IDK much about geography, but theres a mountain range, a harbour, a strait, and some other things. It's also connected to Shenzhen, you can walk across a bridge there. But if you want to know more about it geographically, I think it's better if you google it.

>there's a manga (pic related) made by my favorite mangaka that happens in that neighbourhood.

Looks cool! I don't really read manga but I'll check it out. Though Macau is more known for gambling and stuff, Kowloon does have a bit of a seedy history, so it would be cool to write about.

>I thought Kowloon was inside of HK?
I'm not too sure what you mean. Sorry, my English is not that good. But Kowloon is controlled by the HK government. HK is made of Kowloon, Hong Kong Island, New Territories, and a bunch of other islands. It is separated from the island by Victoria Harbour.

> Kowloon walled city made it famous internationally though, I feel like one of the first places you have to go is the park, and the little Memorial.

Yeah, that's basically all it's known internationally for. It's very interesting though, and I do recommend checking it out as a tourist.

>This is beyond criminal, are you serious?
Yes. China wants to erase Cantonese pretty much. They only want one dialect, and are starting to forbid kids from speaking it in school.

>The parents don't teach their kids Cantonese by choice or its only the schools??

I don't know too much about education of young kids these days, but there are international schools that are very prestigious which only teach in Mandarin. They have better test scores and stuff. For parents, well, it depends on the parent. Some like that putonghua is very popular now because it helps with getting jobs, while others want to preserve cantonese. I think most will teach their kids though, since the vast majority of people still speak it.

For the euro miners here, are some of you stocking on supplies? Since the war started in Ukraine, I'm really anxious about everything going to shit and Poutine using the nukes. So I've been watching survival and preppers videos. I live in a big city in a flat (which imo is the worst place in case of problems like that) and I've started stocking on food (dry stuff like pasta and flour and such)

I've also been looking to buy for a while but now I would really like to buy a small house somewhere and not a flat. I can do my work remote but since covid restrictions ended, my workplace is removing the possibility to work at home.

Anyway, I've just been stressing over all this and I was wondering if there are other miners like me? or maybe someone who was already a prepper way before all that?

Anonymous 125942

I'm in West Europe so relatively far removed from the war but my mom started talking about stocking up on some things like dried beans and bottles of water. She's also going to take some cash out in case Russia starts cyber warfare and get some backup petrol for the car. I didn't think we were in a position where that would be needed but she said she doesn't want to take the risk.. Now I'm thinking I should too just to be sure. Idk. As far as where to live, I feel like if our countries are directly going to go at war with Russia it probably no longer matters because we'll get nuked. That said I feel unsafe as fuck too. It's that I can't leave without reason of direct thread because I'm in uni, but honestly I wish I could leave for Canada where I have distant family who migrated there decades ago. I hope I can go there should the need really arise.

Considering where I live, if he decides to nuke I'd be dead in a fraction of a second, no need or use prepping. Even if I were to run far away to some remote countryside, my home would still be erased and my family dead, I wouldn't want to go on living like that.

Nothing new here: furry and anime-ish commissions - da, furaffinity, twitter, vk (for russians)
I have been deleting accounts and making new ones, so I am not popular - like at all
But from time to time I had commissions

Long ago I had normie art and design work, but that was too painful
Recently I had an offer from a local comic publisher, but they turned out to be a bunch of scammy moids who didn’t want to pay me
Now I only have hope for mobile game companies and casual art (in which I suck)
I have a number of artists I know irl, who work in this field, so I asked one if they have vacancies. So now I am trying to draw something normie to be hired

Anonymous 126477

I feel you, I was planning on having an art career even if it's a small one, and now I don't even know if I'll be able to do that. I will keep drawing though.

I'm Australian, but grew up in Northeast LA.

LA is undoubtedly shitty. Despite being in a city everywhere you want to get to is far away, traffic is horrible, public transit is almost nonexistent, and although I love long walks it sucks walking through hills, shitty sidewalks, and the sides of busy roads to get where you need to go. And seeing all the homeless people everywhere breaks my heart, although I've only had a few bad encounters with one and most of them are very respectful, since they depend on kindness and the rate of violence and abuse against the homeless is so high. Enjoyed the nightlife but turned 18 only a few months before COVID, beaches suck because the water's cold even in summer.

However I loved the latino culture and cuisine growing up in a heavily latino area, and despite being relatively urban there are loads of areas that are undeveloped wilderness or nature preserves. I grew up trekking around the hills of my neighbourhood, not even trails, which kickstarted my love of the outdoors.

Sydney's quite a bit nicer. Beautiful nature everywhere in the city, even the more "urban" areas are full of animals like ibises, parrots, flying foxes, big lizards and all sorts of fantastic animals. In general much more walkable and easy to get around in, especially in the inner city, inner suburbs, and inner west where I live and frequent, food is great. But the public transit, while much better than LA, could be a lot better, and is currently almost nonfunctional due to a transit strike. It's 3/4ths the size of The Netherlands and the newer suburbs are a blight of soulless architecture, cookie-cutter houses, and car-focused design. Wouldn't say it lacks nightlife but the combination of the lockout laws a few years ago and COVID recently has decimated it, and a lot of the interesting independent places have been bought up by big companies enforcing globohomo "alt" culture. Rent is among the highest anywhere in the world, thank God though I have my own studio in a nice area for cheap due to lucking out with disability assistance.

French elections coming up, nobody is interesting and we have two right wings getting good percentages.
Nobody seem to like the current president but he still has the highest chances of staying, next we have LePen OG right wing trying to win presidency and if the second right wing candidate Zemmour wasn't campaining, she might have had her chance this year. And to finish we have Mélanchon, hard left (similar to bernie sanders from what I understand).
Fuck if I know for who I'll vote in the second round but the odds ain't good. At least Macron doesn't look too weak and know how to talk internationaly. But OG Right wing, Right wing the reboot and oldie bernie aren't gonna cut it

I dont vote personally. People have been voting for years and it never stopped things from getting worse. Not voting is the best option imo.

Also I hate every candidate. I only like Lassalle because of his nose and accent. I dont care for other things since I dont vote.

Not voting just mean people's vote who believe way too strongly about shit (i.e far right/left) will have more power. And I don't want any extreme to pass

Nah, I don't agree. Right wings just wanna leave europe and put the franc back which is the worst idea so far imo. Also they don't give two shits about ecology and shit on nuclear power (which of course is not awesome but it's the lesser of the two evils so far)

Hi french miners! I'm also not voting this round and will probably not vote for the secound round either. I'm disgusted with politics in our country, the political debates have been ridiculous (Hanouna hosting presidential debates…) and centered around the same exact topics without discussing in depth important issues. We just had a big pandemic that showed how fucked our health system is and it's not one of the main issue candidates want to tackle?

I fucking hate Macrard and his current government, honestly I'm scared of what's going to happen in the next few years if he's elected for his last mandate and can freely apply his neo-liberal plan. Blanquer is destroying public schooling and it's gonna get worse. I'll probably have to work until 70 yo because fucking 68ard boomers who enjoyed all social benefits want to strip them away now. Don't get me started on Darmanin, Schiappa, Dupont-Moretti… The government has medias on a chokehold and McKinsey's case not blowing up is crazy. It's a big circus but I can't even laugh at it because it'll have real implications for us non-top 1% peasants. A lot of people are tired and ready to snap, a new gilets jaunes movement will probably start although I can only imagine how violent the gov's response will be.

On a side note, what do you think about the Jean Michel Trogneux thing? For those wondering, our first lady (picrel right side), on top of being a pedo, was accused by conspiracy theorists of being a troon, mostly because her supposed brother (left side) has never been seen and looks a lot like her. She also has a weird look (clearly had plastic surgery, wears wigs and a ton of makeup, masculine build…). It's a bit far fetched but Macron has always pinged me as gay and their relationship is already disturbing and weird, who knows?

Voting or not voting won't change the balance of power, due to the way the two-round system works. My only way of showing my rejection of this undemocratic ballot is not voting at all.

Anonymous 129088

Hi again

Not voting is a little bit better for me because at least I do not actively participate as in approve the system. I simply am against democracy. Not necessarily the idea of it, I dont care, Im against it because it doesnt work.
Not voting is expressing yourself too.

Yeah I dont think Brigitte is an actual troon, she's just very ugly. Macron also wears some kind of wig btw. She kinda looks like a chimpanzee btw.

Everyone is a big joke in this. Im tired.

Anonymous 129089

But Im going to call her a troon irl anyway just out of opposition.

Anonymous 129092

>Jean Michel Trogneux
>Macron fucking an eventual trans
Don't care. As long as the people involved enthusiastically consent, he could fuck a table for all I care.

yeah, I can't remember which person said that but I remember reading somewhere that democracy is the least worst idea for government.

Looking forward to the end of that election, cheers to all of you here, et aux françaises qui trainent, forces à vous

As for pedophilia I hate that she is living in luxury when shes obviously insane to be interested into a young boy.

But now they are both adults and he stayed with her all this time and had children wirh her so I really dont care. Also Macron is a sociopath or something like that, just insane and horrible, he doesn't deserve anything better now.

I just want them OUT, even better, DEAD. Idc if they fuck each other. Id be happy to know he's a homosexual because that would be one more reason to hate him for me.

Anonymous 129096

And tbh I wouldnt say she is a pure pedophile because she stayed with him as well.

They have a really weird story actually. It seems like she's not really interested in children or teens. Maybe it was circonstancial since she didnt leave to groom other boys.
Still crazy and insane tho. I hope Im right because if she really is a pedophile maybe she did stuff to other teens.

So yeah end of story I dont feel bad for them because they have it TOO GOOD.

Baguette checking in to take a breather after the election. 5 more year of Macron it seems, nobody is supprised there. Though to be honest, I thought it was gonna be much tighter with le Pen. Like 52/48, although 41% le Pen is tight enough of a gzp as it is imo

Anonymous 131259

I'm surprised at the spread too, mass media propaganda never ceases to amaze with it's efficiency.

I'm also surprised that a large amount of Mélenchon's voters ended up for Macron. Would'nt it be better for them to have Le Pen elected with a 0% chance to have a majority in the assembly, thus forcing a cohabitation and reducing her to little more than a figurehead, rather than having another 5 years of what is basically freewheeling neoliberal Satan ?

Anonymous 131279

>neoliberal satan
I'm not a huge fan either but that's going a bit too far.

But about your point I don't think it would make a lot of sense for people to switch from left to far right. I mean, as figurehead goes, that's what Macron gonna end up being with the assembly, I believe melanchon and the rest are gonna try and get elected there.
Dunno if they'll make it though

Anonymous 131282

That's their plan but it's never going to work, they'll get 100 deputies at best. Really makes me question their sense of strategy, going from Mélenchon to Le pen makes as little sense as going from Mélenchon to Macron.

The people, divided into 3 groups of either narcissists, crippling alcoholics or people with mental health issues. The people here are so depressed it makes one wonder if it's contagious.
And the system itself, more and more every year forcing people out of the countryside and small towns, the only pretty parts of the country.
