I'm new to flex... I haven't gotten any offers. I'm constantly refreshing every hour for past 72 hours. My filter section only shows one location (Renton Mau8) despite my region being 'greater Seattle area". Shouldn't I be seeing multiple stations to choose from in the filter section?
Also, what time of day do Amazon drop new blocks to increase my chance of getting an offer?
Thanks Ryan

2023.05.29 08:21 jmrkiwi Anyone have experience moving to Germany with a Washington Accord Accredited Degree?

I am completing my fourth year of engineering at the University of Auckland New Zealand and want to move to Germany in the near future; I am a dual NZ-German citizen fluent in both English and German.
This will leave me with a Bachelor's Degree with Honours in Mechanical Engineering.
This degree basically qualifies me for most engineering-related jobs in NZ and is accredited by the Washington Accord Internationally through Engineering New Zealand.
From what I understand, there is no direct equivalent degree in Germany.
You either take a 3 Year Bachelor's Degree (First Cycle) or a 3 year Bachelor's plus a 1.5-2 year master's programme (second cycle).
I am looking at working in the field of composites for Aerospace, Automotive or Marine Engineering in R&D and development.

2023.05.29 08:07 DaAli3n My SFFPC History and questions for future builds

Hi all!
Apologies in advance for how long this post is going to be as well as how bad the formatting and linking is - first real post.
I've had this idea to catalog my history with SFFPCs for a while now.
I also have a few questions hidden further in regarding a possible future build that i'm looking at maybe attempting in the next few months.
  Lets begin the trip down memory lane: Build #1 - mid 2014 No Pictures for the build on this one sorry - not much worth documenting either, very simple build!
PC Part Picker Link: (
This PC was the first computer I had ever built with basically my first pay check. Realistically I was building it just to prove to myself that I could and that I wasn't going to break any parts. The long term goal for this PC was to become a youtube / facebook machine for my brother and it worked perfectly. lately i've been using it as a slave pc to run minecraft servers for the lads and it still trucks along with no issues!
Summary: This pc was easy to build and still works today very well with basically no maintenance over the course of its life. It was never meant to be a high power machine and works well as an exertainment machine / server for minecraft. Yes I know I should probably repaste it.  
Following this up was my first "gaming" PC: Build #2 - mid 2016 No photos for this build either sorry. But again, the build was pretty simple with nothing particularly worth documenting. The Corsair case was a dream to build in and had heaps of space for parts and mounting. This PC was built when I was going to a lot of LANs hence the 'portable' case choice!
PC Part Picker Link: (
This PC was and still is a beast. Disregarding the issues with gtx 970's not actually having 4GB of VRAM and instead having 3.5GB + 0.5 GB this PC proved to be an amazing 1080p gaming machine. Specifically this was mostly because of two factors:  
  • The i5 6600k was a monster! I heard lots about how only having 4 cores and no hyperthreading meant this little CPU was a weak competitor when compared to the more capable 7700k. But for what I had lined up? This CPU was perfect and never let me down. This CPU was incredibly easy to overclock, ran cool compared to many higher spec'd parts at the time and was a single core performing beast. This CPU was overclocked (easily) to basically 4.9Ghz for its entire life which allowed for it to be competitive with much newer CPU's all the way up to and past a stock i9 9900k (gotta love the 14 nm villain arc intel went on). Yes you read that right, with a hefty overclock my little of i5 6600k was out performing brand new (stock) i9 9900k cpus! (but only in single, duo and quad core workloads, anything more and it would fall over. I also had to seriously adjust memory timings to get up to the 9900k which had them running at unsafe voltages for long term use as well)
  • Super fast SSD for quick load & boot times! I know a 250GB SSD is tiny by todays standards especially as the only drive in the PC but back in 2016? This was manageable and provided a massive performance increase in a market full of PCs still using HHD as boot drives.
In addition to the above there were serval things about this PC that I absolutely loved:
  • The Corsair 380T case was AMAZING. The side panels have a metal cover over the main plastic bulk of the panel, the metal part could be removed by bending the clips holding it on and allowing a thin filter material to be added in. For anyone looking to build in the 380T I 100% recommend doing this! Basically the only maintenance was to run a vacuum over the side panels and no dust ended up inside the case at all.
  • Having the i5 6600k under the 240 AIO allowed the i5 6600k to pull full TDP (plus the rest from the overclock) and stay at about a maximum of 65 degrees C (149 F) well within a safe operational range.
Now days this PC is living out its retirement at a friends place who couldn't afford a PC and still running strong clocked at a solid 4.7GHz. Which is more than enough for the games they are playing. Not suitable for much more than 1080p 60fps in most modern games (medium settings if that), this PC still stands out as the best PC i've built so far. I also did push the CPU as much as physically possible - Upping the voltage, clock and bus clock (a little trick from the generation to squeeze out a few more points in benchmarking) to make the CPU hit about 5.1GHz max. While stable this also bumped up temps to about 95 degrees C (203 F) which was not sustainable long term.
Summary: This PC was a beast for the price and delivered amazing performance - the only regret I had at the time was not getting a 7700k or equivalent for hyperthreading but in hindsight this was not an issue and this PC was still able to deliver years of fun!
This brings us to current day: Build #3 - early 2021
PC Part Picker Link:
This is where the fun begins. This PC was built with the goal of "No compromises" and I like to think I delivered! With a fully custom water cooling loop for both a 5950x and 3090 this PC is able to play basically any modern game at 1440p 240hz while maintaining reasonable temperatures. Originally this PC was built as an air-cooled PC with the goal to be water-cooled later. Most of my comments will focus on the water-cooling process.
But before we move on here are my air-cooled comments:
  • The Asus TUF GAMING OC GeForce RTX 3090 only just fits in the case. This required the front IO panel to be removed and for the case to basically come apart to allow for the 3090 to slide in sideways before wriggling into the PCIE slot. Doable but a tight fit.
  • Everything was so much simpler when everything was air-cooled! This goes without saying but i'd 100% recommend that anyone attempting this seriously consider just leaving everything air-cooled. What follows this is not for the faint of heart.
Now we get serious, and by serious I mean everything gets janky - you have been warned. Firstly, the GPU block didn't fit the case and this caused a lot of headaches. For more clarification please check the photos. Secondly, space was tight inside the case. Again, check the photos to see how little space there was inside the case. This meant that tubes between water cooling components were just jammed wherever I could fit them.
I watched a lot and I mean a lot of videos and tutorials about what would fit and what parts to buy etc. The number 1 source of my information was Optimum Tech on youtube. He has many videos showing in beautiful detail how he builds powerful ITX systems. 100% reccommend. And he's another Aussie lad!
The entire build process is basically documented in the photos that i'm currently trying to upload to imgur. Once I get the upload sorted i'll link to it here so you can follow along my adventures.
Photos Part 1 Photos Part 2
There is a bit of extra information in the photos so please give it a read if you're interested but i'm happy to answer questions if you have them so post away!
Summary: While a pain the ass to build, this no compromises PC destroys every single game I throw at it. It stays at reasonable temps with a mild undervolt on the 3090 and PBO applied to the 5950x.
This brings me to the section where I actually get to ask questions about a possible new build. If you've stuck with me this long, thank you and I hope you've enjoyed my history with ITX PCs.
Possible Future Build: Build #4 - mid 2023?
PC Part Picker Link: (
Please see my below reasoning on why i'm currently looking at these parts: Note: i'm looking to build in a Louqe Ghost S1 case.
Part Reasoning
AMD Ryzen 5 7600 Low power and super efficient CPU to provide amazing CPU performance in a TDP that can be easily cooled by a low profile cooler. Not a fan of how AM5 x series sits at 95 degrees C and no real low power intel option to compete (sub 70W)
Noctua NH-L12 Ghost S1 Best low profile cooler that can fit in the Louqe Ghost S1 case
Asus ROG STRIX X670E-I GAMING WIFI I was looking at cheaper motherboards but read several reviews that the ones available here in Australia had poor VRM design and cooling implementation. This motherboard also is confirmed to fit with the chosen cooler Noctua Website
G.Skill Flare X5 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR5-6000 CL32 Good compromise between performance, lowish profile and price
Samsung 980 Pro 2 TB Simple, easy, powerful, reliable and not a bad price here in Aus but might swap if something else comes along
Inno3D Twin X2 GeForce RTX 4070 Based on the case compatibility list on the Louqe subreddit and the 4070 review performed by Value king the Inno3D Twin X2 seems to be one of the best options that both fits the Louqe case and has good build quality
Corsair SF750 750 W 80+ Platinum Pretty standard choice for ITX builds as far as I can tell. I've used it before and love the quality
Now that you've got the background we can get into the meat of my questions for this hypothetical build:
To get the most out of my 7600 should I lap the CPU or delid and direct die cool? I want the CPU to easily sit within its thermal limits while having some headroom to play around with settings and squeeze the most I can out of. A return to the era of the 6600k again, low power with lots of room to tinker and wring out all the performance I can while staying cool. Even going so far as to play with memory timings again.
My thoughts at this stage are as follows:
Direct Die Lapping
Allows for liquid metal to be applied directly to the CPU die for best possible thermal transfer Allows for the IHS to soak the heat from the tiny core on the 7600 into a larger surface before absorbing heat into the cooler.
Liquid metal has shown in the past to provide massive temperature reductions in similar applications Is much less likely to damage the CPU itself and still offer significant improvement to temperature.
The 7600 cores are so small and so off center that i'm concerned only 1 or 2 of the copper heat pipes in the cooler would actually make contact. This combined with the difficulty of balancing a cooler on the CCD & IO Die as they're both small not both centered could lead to insignificant gains. Lapping could be combined with liquid metal if really required to try and get even more performance gains from the 7600.
I've also not seen any videos or posts from people using either the lapping or direct die methods on a 7600 - as the part is so low power this makes sense but I was trying to consider all options before committing to one or the other. I did see one video of someone trying to use the direct die frame and liquid metal with a 7600x unsuccessfully which has also not helped with my trepidation: Actually Hardcore Overclocking
It is also worth noting that Thermal Grizzly and Roman "der8auer" also sell products for both lapping and direct die modifications so both are fairly easily accessible to me.
To be clear, the goal here is to fit super efficient parts into the stock Louqe Ghost S1 without needing a top hat for extra cooling or crazy internal fan placement to get extra airflow. I'd love for both the 4070 and 7600 to both have enough airflow to perform optimally without having to modify the case and add extra fans.
Questions? Comments? Drop them below and i'll try to answer anything I can!

First I Previous
Chapter 21: Forging The Chains
Thanks to Diggs’ jury-rigged repairs, Mako was just barely able to maneuver and dock with Peacemaker. Given the damage they’d sustained during the brief battle, they decided to take the smaller vessel in tow while the passengers and crew transferred over to the Precursor ship. They gathered at the airlock, as they exchanged nervous glances all around.
Reaching out with a steadying hand, Rúna touched the young Tinker’s shoulder. “Promise me you won’t do anything stupid,” she pressed him.
Diggs grimaced at her words. “... I promise,” he mumbled.
She nodded in satisfaction. “I’ll hold you to that,” she smiled. “This situation is complicated enough without you squaring off against Captain Hadad. Just steer clear of him. I imagine he’ll do the same.”
“I promise, Rúna,” he vowed once more. His crush on the red-headed Valkyrie had mostly faded, but based on how quickly he’d agreed, Genvass was betting there was still a spark.
Captain Taneka was hovering near her wounded XO. “How’s he holding up?” she asked the Knight, her concern regarding his injuries unmistakable.
“His vitals are still stable, but he needs surgery,” Doc Svoboda explained. “I can do it, but not in a vacuum. As soon as we’re aboard, I’ll take him to the infirmary and get to work.”
Before she could respond, the airlock started to cycle, ending any further discussion as the group turned their attention to the hatch. Two figures stood on the other side; Remi Hadad, and Samara. They gazed at the crowd from Mako, eyeing each of them, with the captain’s expression hardening as he spotted Diggs.
Genvass stepped forward, desperate to make this first meeting go as smoothly as possible. “Captain Hadad, Samara,” he said, nodding to each in turn, “we deeply appreciate you rescuing us from the Troika. I realize we have much to discuss, but we have a wounded man who needs immediate attention.” He gestured to Karl Israfil, still unconscious and lying on a stretcher.
The Corsair glanced over at Samara. “I assume you have somebody for that?” he asked her.
“I do,” she nodded, as something shifted in her expression and body language. “Bring the patient,” she ordered, her voice now sounding far different than it had previously.
The Knight looked dubiously at the Protean before Rúna intervened. “It’ll be all right,” she told him. “It must be one of her symbiotes.”
Svoboda slowly nodded. Practically every Terran was aware of Samara’s talents, courtesy of the Precursor artifact linked with her. With a veritable host of stored personalities contained within, there were few tasks she couldn’t master. “You’re a doctor?” he asked.
Physician 2nd Grade Rithir Merkott,” the cognate confirmed. “This vessel has a fully stocked medical bay,” he explained, “and treating your patient’s injuries should pose no difficulty.”
It was obvious the medic still had doubts, but his concern for his patient’s physical well-being superseded everything else. With a nod, he and the other stretcher bearers lifted the wounded man from the deck and carried him aboard Peacemaker, following Samara’s lead.
Genvass stepped forward, with Rúna and the others alongside, only to come to an abrupt halt as Remi held up his hand. “No weapons,” he ordered. “You can leave them here in the airlock.”
“No way in hell we’re letting you disarm us,” the Valkyrie snarled.
“And there’s no way in hell I’ll allow you the means to hijack this ship,” the pirate countered. “Don’t stand there and tell me you don’t already have a plan in the works to do just that.”
Rúna worked her jaw but said nothing. “Your silence speaks volumes,” he said knowingly. “Dump your weapons, or stay on Mako. Your choice.”
Her hand unconsciously went to her sword. “I’m not leaving the Ambassador unprotected,” she fired back. “Besides,” she drawled, “I only see one of you, and four of us. So maybe you should just step aside and drop this, Captain.” The other Valkyries tensed, readying themselves for action.
“If you want to take your chances with Peacemaker’s security safeguards, be my guest,” he smiled thinly, “though I doubt you’ll enjoy the experience.”
Her eyes narrowed. “You’re bluffing,” she decided, her hand twitching on the. sword’s hilt.
Genvass hurriedly stepped between them. “Please, there’s no need for this,” he pled with them both, before turning and addressing Rúna. “I appreciate your concerns, but I’m certain we’ll be safe.” He turned back to face the captain. “Will you give your oath that no harm will come to anyone aboard this ship?”
Hadad chewed on that for a moment, before giving a gruff nod. “As long as they abide by the rules, I give you my word no harm will come to them,” he agreed.
Armed with his promise, Genvass closed ranks with the Valkyrie. “He’s given his word,” he petitioned. “Please, stand down, Rúna,” he beseeched her.
She ground her teeth together so hard that he could hear it from a meter away. “I can’t. Leave you. Unprotected,” she fought to get out, her sense of duty warring with the risk of putting her people in danger.
The ambassador’s eyes darted back and forth between them, desperately searching for a compromise. “What if you allowed her to keep her sword?” he blurted out. “The other weapons would remain here, just as you requested. I’m certain that a single sword would be no match against this ship’s defenses, should it prove necessary.” He silently implored the Corsair to accept his proposal, allowing Rúna to save face. She was a proud young woman, but more importantly, she was a Marine. The word “surrender” simply wasn’t in her vocabulary.
He could see just how badly Remi wanted to dismiss the notion out of hand, but in the end, he was also a pragmatist. If he dug in his heels, it was likely that Rúna would do the same, sending them both on a collision course that could only end in blood.
Fine,” he said at last, “but it damn well better stay sheathed.”
Genvass could tell that even allowing that much cost him, but it was the right decision. Now he just had to sell it to Rúna. “We can’t stay aboard Mako,” he reminded her, “and though I know it cuts against the grain for you, will you accept this arrangement? I’m certain it’s only temporary. I doubt we’ll be here for long.”
She glared at Remi, incensed he’d put her in this position. Thankfully, she was also a pragmatist, all too aware this was the best deal she was likely to get. Genvass held his breath as she weighed her options, before finally giving her team a nod. He sighed in relief as they began clearing and stacking their weapons, collecting quite a pile of hardware before they were done. Once they’d finished disarming themselves under Captain Hadad’s watchful gaze, they moved to join their commander, until Rúna held up her hand and brought her sergeant to a halt.
“Becca… your hideout piece,” she said calmly.
The sergeant’s eyes flashed with something unreadable before slowly removing a concealed pistol from the small of her back. Locking and clearing the sidearm almost as an afterthought, she added it to the pile before giving Rúna a questioning look. A curt nod was her only reply before moving to join the others. Turning back to face the Corsair, she placed her hands on her hips. “Satisfied?” she sneered.
“Completely,” he answered, far more affably than recent events might suggest.
“Go find Doc,” she ordered her team, “and bring him up to speed. I expect I’m going to be busy here for a while.”
“Aye aye, ma’am,” Becca acknowledged as the marines exited the compartment.
“There’s one more passenger,” Genvass informed Remi, “Ess Peon. She’s an Avatar. I hope that won’t be a problem?”
“Considering that even Samara’s friends found it all but impossible to hack into Peacemaker’s systems, I’m not worried,” he answered. “Speaking of which, I imagine they’ll be joining us shortly, once they finish treating your patient.” Jerking his head towards the entrance, Remi prompted them both to follow him aboard. “I believe we’re past due for a conversation,” he said cryptically, leading them into the bowels of the ship, before finally reaching an almost invisible hatchway. The door silently slid open as he stepped inside.
“Make yourselves comfortable,” he told them, before pouring himself a glass and taking a seat. Genvass found a spot opposite of him, while Rúna perched on the edge of a nearby chair, mindful of her sword, while the Corsair touched an icon on the console beside him, bringing a monitor to life.
“We get any electronic passengers, Xuilan?” he asked the pilot.
“We sure did,” she confirmed. “I’ve got her stored in the buffer for now. Just waiting on the word from you.”
“Keep her away from the critical systems and databases, but other than that, I think we’re good,” he instructed her. “Let me know if there are any problems. Hadad, clear.” That accomplished, he blanked the screen and returned his attention to his guests.
“You said we should talk,” the ambassador began, “and I agree. I recently had a conversation with my clan leader, which led me to the conclusion there’s more going on here than any of us realize.”
“There usually is,” Remi observed.
Genvass nodded in agreement. “Before I relay to you the contents of our discussion, I would dearly like to know why you stole this ship and attacked the To’uuk homeworld.” He shook his head dolefully, as the weight of it all settled on his shoulders. “I don’t think you fully grasp what you’ve set in motion.”
“I am well aware of what we’ve begun,” Remi fired back.
“Are you?” the diplomat asked pointedly. “You had to realize how this ship would be seen by the other races. If it was your intent to impress upon them our superiority, there were other ways of accomplishing that. Safer ways, ones that wouldn’t turn even our allies against us.”
“The Alliance was a marriage of convenience, nothing more,” he said derisively. “The only reason it ever existed was because of the Troika. If it hadn’t been for them running roughshod over everyone else, you couldn’t have got those species to agree that water was wet. It was fear that drove them together, nothing more.”
Genvass started to speak, but Rúna beat him to it.
“You arrogant bastard,” she snarled. “You want to know who created the Alliance? I did. Me and Kai. We traded the Oivu the telepathic cure for them spreading the word. And it worked,” she growled. “If it wasn’t for the Alliance, you wouldn’t be sitting in that chair. They fought side by side with us, all the way to the bitter end. Maybe that doesn’t mean much to a pirate,” she said with scorn, “but it damn well meant something to us. And you are pissing all over it.” Rúna glared at him, daring him to make a move.
“... I step out for two minutes, and you’re already at each other’s throats,” Samara said from the doorway. Sighing theatrically, she poured herself a drink before taking a seat beside Remi. “If you kids can’t play nice, I’ll send you both to bed with no supper.” Grinning at her own witticism, she turned her attention to the ambassador. “Nice to see you again, Genvass,” she smiled. “What brings you by?”
“We were in the neighborhood,” he said dryly. “How’s your patient?”
“He should make a complete recovery,” she assured him. “I’ve already informed his captain.”
“That’s good news,” he answered. “But as relieved as I am to learn Karl’s going to be fine, we have much bigger problems.” He paused for a moment, struggling to find a diplomatic way of making his point, before opting for brevity instead. “You’ve declared war on the galaxy in humanity’s name,” he said in quiet horror. “Every species in the Perseus Arm is now aligned against us, and for what?” Genvass shook his head, unable to fathom their actions. “What could you possibly hope to gain?”
Freedom,” Samara answered. “Freedom from exploitation, freedom from tyranny, freedom from slavery. We spent two hundred years dancing to their tune. Never again.”
“We already had that,” he retorted. “Once we claimed New Terra, no one could touch us, and you both knew that. Attacking the To’uuk convinced every other species they could be next, and they’re scared. Scared people do not make rational decisions. Terra knows we certainly don’t,” he said in dismay.
“They’re afraid of us?” Remi smiled. “Good. They should be scared. For two centuries they’ve harried us, tortured us, and even killed us when it suited them. Now it’s our turn.”
“So you plan on punishing the entire galaxy for the actions of a few,” he said in revulsion. “You want to commit mass murder on a scale that not even the Troika ever conceived of? What the hell is wrong with you?” He looked at them each in turn, as consternation filled his mortal soul. “And worst of all? I’ve heard this rant before. We all have.” Leaning forward, he fixed them both with his stare. “You sound exactly like Elder Brother when he unleashed the Yīqún.” The two glanced at one another in surprise before looking back at Genvass, their expressions hardening. “This isn’t about freedom, or security, or even justice,” he hissed. “This is about revenge, nothing more.”
“And what if it is?” Samara demanded. “Do you have any idea what I endured when I was forced to work for the Troika? Do you know how many of my fellow Proteans I saw turned into crippled lumps of flesh, so they could play god?” Her eyes went ice cold as she whispered, “Do you know how many innocents they forced me to murder, just to stay alive?
“You think you’ve got the market cornered with playing executioner?” Rúna spat out. “You killed in… what? Ones and twos and threes? Those are rookie numbers. We killed in dozens and hundreds and thousands, depending on the contract. And as much as I’d like to claim I was fighting on the side of the angels, the truth is most of them were only guilty of having something those in power wanted for themselves.” She snorted in disgust. “So spare me your fucking pity party.”
“This is pointless,” Remi sneered. “It’s obvious we won’t convince one another. Besides, what’s done is done. There’s no putting the genie back in the bottle. The other races will simply have to accept that things have changed. The Troika ruled over this galaxy for five thousand years. Now, it’s our turn.”
“And so the cycle of vengeance continues,” Genvass said quietly. “Round and round it goes, and no one is safe from it.” He looked up at them both, his eyes wet with emotion. “Is that the future you want for our people? For our children, after all we’ve suffered?” He buried his face in his hands, overcome with sudden emotion, before slowly rising to his feet.
“... I have to believe there’s a better way,” he implored them, giving them both one last look before exiting the compartment.

2023.05.29 07:32 We_Are_Legion The Choice (A calm, clarifying letter to moderates, containing an overview of the terrain of the question of Islam and our current position on this leg of the journey to truth)

The Choice (A calm, clarifying letter to moderates, containing an overview of the terrain of the question of Islam and our current position on this leg of the journey to truth)
The Choice
The truth is that the Islam we were taught in school and by our parents, teachers and society... is watered down. I am not trying to offend you. It is just that you are not informed on these matters. You are not informed because our various Ulema and governments saw fit to hide it from you. Our rulers are concerned what Muslims become when they find out true islam; they think it leads to violence and social problems that they seek to rid. Our elites and educated simply want to live secular lives and pursue development. So more and more as the muslim world has been entering the modern era (1920s onward), they've been watering down and muzzling islam, and giving people a carefully diluted religion because its convenient. That's what "moderate Islam" is. Though they do re-indoctrinate us on true islam when they need us to fight insurgencies (e.g. mujahideen against soviets) and face problems trying to turn off true islam when they're done (e.g. taliban against pakistan).
In hiding true shariah viewpoints on issues from you, they also hid the core meaning and intent of Islamic philosophy. Which the watered down Islam does not contain. Islam is not some vague spirituality with praying and fasting. It is not sufi-ism. Here's a rule of thumb; if it aint Shariah, it aint Islam. Islam is a total way of life for a citizen of a theocratic religious-supremacist state. Right now, you suspect this but wont fully understand this state's harsh rulings because you are not raised on the key parts of genuine islamic philosophy that underpins all this in "moderate islam". You are raised on modern values.
There are two kinds of people who discover genuine islamic philosophy;
- The ex-muslims; hard to get accurate statistics but estimated 3-6% of Pakistan's population and growing, also reports of 30% of gen Z in Turkey and 40% of Iran's population (according to optimistic surveys, but even if its less, its almost certainly greater than 40% of Iran's youth).
- the fundamentalists; can be anyone that understands the fundamentals ranging from salafists, wahabbists, to hardcore molvis, extremist uncles, taliban to ISIS. Research shows extremist attitudes are really high among people who didnt go to western schools but instead listened to their well-informed and unfiltered rural molvi who got true islam from one of these: I dont like them but atleast they're self-honest so I like them *more* than the moderates.
A moderate muslim may often be found sitting and scratching his or her head about why these two groups exist... as they don't believe their religion is false nor do they believe their religion is violent or extreme or propagates harmful opinions that infringe on rights and freedom of others. They're often crying about islamophobia at the ex-muslims/western islamic scholars that understand islam or decrying that "you ignorant molvis ruined islam" at the fundamentalists who also understand islam. (Not realizing that 95% of molvis on earth are trying their best to push "moderate islam". And its only 5% of molvis choose to go back to fundamentalsm.)
In reality, only the ex-muslims and fundamentalists get it. The moderates are clueless. Their careful state-constructed Islamiat education is shocked when they discover the Islamic religion is violent, is repressive, is extreme, does have self-righteous cult-like tendancies, is not compatible with many modern humanist values and never was. And never tried to be or was intended to be. And that it DOESNT give them the rights and freedoms they've been enjoying as a citizen of a country ruled by secular, humanist values. Examples of this are shariah views on (slavery, forced marriage, child marriage, gender equality, offensive warfare, dhimmi subjugation, and much more)
SO...The Choice we are facing is
  1. whether to stay asleep in "moderate Islam lala-land" (which is represented by the bright happy forest in this photo. But beware that though it appears enticing and attractive... but because its a lie... its a trap. Lies and avoidism are always poison. Especially when they form the foundation of a society. You will always have a fractured, sect-filled, half-modern, half-medieval, hypocritical and doubt-filled country on this path.)OR
  2. to self-honestly examine what Islam really is. (The fundamentalists/extremists and ex-muslims put together their discovieries very well. Choose either and they will guide you to the harsh truths that moderates hid.) This path is represented by the dark forest in the photo and it takes courage to venture into the ugly depths. You are thinking for yourself. This is hard but because its facing the truth, its the correct choice over time.)
IF you choose the dark forest, there is a further fork in this road.
2A) You can choose to accept the actual philosophical tenets of Islam, complete with associated violent, supremacist commands and its contradictions, strange science and become closer and closer to ISIS. In this option, you subordinate your reason to god and say "Oh Allah, though there are things in your Shariah that offend my modern-education trained intellect, heart and conscience, I'm just not smart enough to review your wisdom and so I'll obey unquestioningly."
2B) You think for yourself and examine whether the foundations of what Islam claims is true or not; i.e. whether it truly comes from god or not. No pre-packaged conclusions from me or anyone else. You think for yourself and find the truth.
(i.e. See if the first principles are solid and support the next concept without conjecture or invalid reasoning. Is it possible to have character growth or did Islam reach ultimate of all ideas for all time? Which you can judge by whether each concept in true Islam is actually a stronger alternative to those reached by reason in the world. Examine and understand both and see which is more likely to be true. (for example, i recall comparing Shariah vs Natural Rights under "Why Nations Fail" framework and chose the latter. I recall realizing Islam genuinely didn't predict technology would change mode of life so much. Or comparing Islam vs evolution and chose the latter. Or found peace outside Islam and realizing islam didnt hold any monopoly on spirituality. Or Islam's views on morality. Saw non-muslims could be good and close to god. I ended up rejecting Quran's philosophy that lack of gullibility is worth torture and compulsion in this world and the next.)
I reached 2B.
I'm past it.
I really will not promise you a medal if you get here. There's no prize. It's... nothing.
But its not a lie.
For me, that makes it non-optional.
It is also a path that can lead to many more places and many more truths.The scientific revolution happened here as Europe rejected the Bible's views on reality and sought to think for themselves.Constitutions and human rights happened here as philosophers rejected the Bible's morality and said that humanity can have some character growth.Women's rights happened here too so girls and boys can have equal opportunities and whatnot.And no, there's no new ideology you have to follow (and in fact, if you do, thats a new trap). Because now that you think for yourself, you are in charge of your own destiny. In a mysterious universe that you can discover anew.
Honestly, you can do, be whatever you want. Sing, dress how you want, not fight over religion, not have to worry what your ideology thinks.
You can even learn about the mind and the self, and conquer it. Which is perhaps the ultimate and only thing worth doing in this life.
It probably isn't productive to linger here at 2B once you're past it and pick on a dead, defenseless horse like religion. Except maybe to hold the lantern to guide the next person who comes here (many of us are haunted to do this). But I guess a task even more worthy than that is to unearth the next false and unexamined belief within us. Where Islam hid, many more false beliefs do, including the self. And it is that, not athiesm nor religion, that is the source of the planet's suffering. Knowing that, we can continue onwards in our journey to truth.

2023.05.29 07:20 zarreeyuh The Future of BLACKSWAN after “Karma” comeback

So, Blackswan finally came out with a new comeback song, and I can’t help but question how this comeback will impact their future, if it will at all.
First of all, I absolutely love their comeback song! It’s one of my favorites, and I can’t stop listening to it. They honestly did a really good job this time around. However, regardless of how good their comeback song is, I can’t help but feel that their company will somehow screw them over.
As y’all may know, DR Music does not have the best history when it comes to groups and their success. Blackswan started off as a group called Raina, then they rebranded a few times and ended up as Blackswan. They made a lot of headlines, mainly for having the first black K-pop idol in their group (before she left and was switched out, of course), but they haven’t really been promoted much outside of that.
For example, this lineup is perfect in my opinion. They are all very talented girls and have so much potential as a group. But you know how DR loves switching out members, adding new ones, and just playing around with the lineup instead of just creating a new group.
I want to say that they’ve been doing a pretty good job lately promoting their new song, and I’ve seen them on a lot of music shows, and the girls have been doing great! Their performances are amazing. But it makes me sad whenever I'm reminded of the company they're under. :(
So what do you guys think? Do you think this is a new era for the company, meaning that they’ll actually start putting a little more work into the group? Or do you think the cycle is bound to repeat itself?

2023.05.29 07:13 Proctor-47 I don’t care if no one agrees with me. I feel the need to get this off of my chest:

Fuck this show. Fuck this show for making me get my hopes up that Bill Hader could pull off a crime drama/dark comedy well enough to earn my approval. What a colossal waste of potential. This show could’ve been like a West Coast version of Fargo or Dexter, but that possibility was destroyed so that Bill could make a mediocre comedy and a horrible crime drama. Where do I even start with the mistakes that this show makes?
  1. The miserable and lazy way that Bill did the gunfights. People stand around for 3 seconds, pointing their guns at someone but never pulling the trigger until they randomly get killed. What? Who the Hell stands around for 3 seconds during a fucking gunfight?! If anything, a realistic gunfight would have people shooting their guns much more frequently than just only shooting when the plot calls for them to shoot. This screams “I’m too lazy to edit and block a gunfight scene to look well done” so Bill just depends on his audience having no desire to see realistic and well directed gunfights in a TV show. If I had a dollar for every time someone in this show did something during a gunfight that only a 2-year-old monkey with a gun would do, I’d have enough money to buy myself a steak dinner at Applebee’s.
  2. The extreme over dependence on deus ex machinas to move the plot forward. I understand that comedies often use this trope, but this show is meant to exist in reality, and it’s not meant to be a pure comedy show. When SO MANY PLOT IMPORTANT SITUATIONS THAT I CAN’T EVEN COUNT occur because of random bullcrap that would only occur if you were playing Fallout: New Vegas with the Wild Wasteland park equipped (and then modded to operate at 300% efficiency), your writing does not come across as creative or good, it just comes across as contemptibly lazy. If Bill’s goal was to make me laugh by doing this, then he failed. All it did was make me see him as a writer who isn’t willing to put in the work to write plot threads that have at least a reasonable chance of playing out in real life.
  3. The comedy and drama in this show was NOT balanced well. I don’t care what anyone else says: this show was clearly 2/3 comedy and 1/3 drama, yet had the audacity to call itself part comedy, part crime drama. Also, some of the comedy was just juvenile and cringeworthy: some scenes felt like I was watching The Office, but not in a “Lol that’s hilarious!” way, but a “If someone said something like that or did that in front of me, I’d stare at them for 3 seconds with my eyes full of confusion and contempt before walking away and never speaking to them again” way.
  4. Too many side characters got 0 meaningful conclusions or follow ups; they just popped up, filled a role, and then went “poof” with no explanation as to why we aren’t seeing them again when we know how important they can be to the main characters’ lives and arcs. Characters like Albert, Lily, Sam, and Katie were interesting to watch, but to have Bill just make them suddenly disappear out of thin air and get no realistic or satisfying conclusion to their part in the story was irritating and a bad writing mistake. Where the Hell did Albert go after Barry got arrested? Did he seriously not get AT ALL involved in the trial? It would’ve been nice to see that.
  5. Barry didn’t get enough action in this show. I know that Bill’s intent wasn’t to glamorize murderers, and I support that, but at least show us and remind us semi-frequently that Barry is a skilled and deadly killer. Having him only kill people with IQs of 14, or people who are distracted, or having him get ready for a big fight just to have the potential fight scene be stopped by something, only serves to make us not fear Barry, and leaves any desires to see a good and well written/directed action scene unsatisfied. We know that Barry’s dangerous, but we don’t see him as this very powerful force that we should see him as. A series like this should make you fear Barry, but I found myself only slightly unnerved by him. Just hire good quality stunt coordinators and stunt doubles if you’re unable to do fight scenes. You have the money for it, Bill.
  6. Hank and Fuches had no real backstory, and Barry’s backstory felt insufficient and shallow. No in depth look at his childhood? Not really telling us his reason for joining the Marines? Come on, one vague flashback in Season Four isn’t enough!
For anyone wondering why I stuck with the show for so long, despite disliking it, it’s because I had hope; very large amounts of hope. I had hope that Bill could redeem his writing and directing skills in my eyes by creating an amazing final season and/or episode, but the finale proved my fears that my hopes were being raised for something that would ultimately disappoint me.
That’s all I have to say. Yes, the show did have good messages, cinematography, acting, and symbolisms, but these (for me at least) didn’t make up for the overall poor quality that the show had. I’d rate this show a 4/10. Please do better in the future, Bill.
TL;DR I didn’t like this show because Bill Hader wrote it very lazily and focused too much on trying to make the show funny that its quality suffered

2023.05.29 06:49 Zephyrwin "Only mukbangs, traveling, and showing off celebrity homes...", Netizens talk about the decline of variety shows compared to the earlier days

allkpop link
Netizens talked about the decline of variety shows compared to the earlier days.
On May 28, one netizen took to a popular online community forum and wrote, "I'm not from that era, but from what I hear from my sister, the variety shows from long time ago were apparently super entertaining. When I look up variety shows from the past, there are so many fun episodes so I just watch them all on YouTube."
The netizen then critized the variety shows from the recent days, writing, "Nowadays, they're all mukbangs, about traveling, or installing cameras in celebrities' homes so that they can show off just how fancy their lives are, how happy their lives are, how kind they are to their families, or how happily they take care of their children...They only do reactions whereas long time ago, they used to throw their bodies around and become the center of the joke, so viewers would connect with them really well."
Netizens commented:
"I hate 'I Live Alone' and 'Omniscient Point of Interference' the most. I came to the realization that I have no idea why I'm sitting there watching these things, so I stopped watching them."
"Only the panel members are switched out, but if you just look at the VCR you can't even tell the difference between 'I Live Alone' and 'Omniscient Point of Interference'."
"Seriously, all they show nowadays are stuffing themselves with food and laughing amongst themselves."
"For real, they are not genuine at all. They just play, eat, and talk amongst themselves and have a ton of boring."
"Nowadays, I only see celebrities showing off their money. Loll."
" 'Hangout With Yoo' is the most severe. I recently watched if after a while and unknowingly blurted out, 'what the f*ck are they doing?' "
"I stopped watching variety shows after 'Infinite Challenge' ended."
Do you guys agree with what the Korean netizens are saying? I kinda agree, I feel like I'm been losing interest in the recent episodes, and the new shows are mostly travel-oriented, with an all-male cast too.
