Food & Drinks

I'd like to tell you about the wonders of "Hungarian cottage cheese" or "körözött" (cca. circled) as we call it.
It's cottage cheese (cow or sheep or the mix of both, my favourit is a 50-50 mix but I usually eat pure cow's) mixed with red paprika powder, caraway/cumin, fine chopped onion, salt, butter and/or sour cream. I like it with butter and very little sour cream.
Eat it as a spread with tomatoes, radishes, paprika etc.

Blogpost. I have half a box of Twinings tea I only drink it occasionally as it's considered a more expensive and finer brand. I noticed however I crossed the expiration date. The tea's still fine so I decided I drink it fast. Now I drink 1,5 l Twinings Earl Gray on daily basis. Feels good, man.

Intro
I wrote in the vidya thread about how I found Anno 1602 on PC mag's CD and that gave me an idea. I tried to look for my few CD's acquired the same way but I couldn't find mine however I found others I got some buddy of mine once. Actually he gave me a roll of 50 CD's, these are partly PC mag's appendices, partly pirated material, partly other stuff, like GNU/Linux distributions or Nero disks.
I found for example Baldur's Gate II pirated from somewhere also an original factory made Shadows of Amn expansion disk beside it. Pirated NHL 2002 but original Alone in the Dark 3. Nice. I went through all of these once long ago, I can see my scribbled notes on the CD's what works what not, but never took the time to use any of these. I'm not intend to. At least not now.

Right now the more interesting stuff is on the PC mag CDs. I'm gonna review one here with you, Bernd.
If you'd like please post your findings if you own such CD's or DVD's. I'm sure Bernd has some secretly in the corned of his basement.

rondam news

from your contry or wherever

the arbitral tribunal finally announced rulings regarding border disputes between slovenia and croatia. however, croatia claims they will ignore those rulings because they don't see them as legitimate ever since a year ago when some phone calls between one of the members of the tribunal and some irrelevant slovenian official were leaked. however the arbitration was accepted as part of ultimatum to croatia regarding eu membership.

http://www.24ur.com/novice/slovenija/po-vec-letih-prerekanja-danes-le-nastopil-dan-d-bo-slovenija-dobila-stik-z-odprtim-morjem.html

besides the sea border dispute, most land border disputes were results of anomalies where one republic or a municipality governed land that was nominally on the other side of the republic border.

see pictures in article. it was ruled out that:
1) gulf of piran belongs to slovenia (except for a narrow strip next to croatian coast, as opposed to border going along the centreline) and the sea border continues straight out to italian waters; slovenia doesn't get a direct contact with international waters but instead a 4.6km wide corridor is assigned inside croatian waters that slovenia gets full access to
2) land border follows the dragoña river; this means that a couple of houses (most notably, joško joras, who wrote "here is slovenia too" on his house in 2002 and had some publicised breakouts with border officials) and fields, altogether 113ha that were part of slovene municipalities and were infrastructurally connected to slovenia, stay on croatian side
3) 70ha of forest on snežnik plateau forests that were part of hungary before ww1 but was anomalously reassigned to slovenia during treaty of rapallo for no reason whatsoever, remain part of slovenia
4) 335ha large piece of clay around village of drage (northern bela krajina, foothills of gorjanci), mostly forests, that was anomalously part of croatian cadadstres goes to croatia. this is right next to the worst example of bordergore on slovene border, however the ruling does nothing to resolve that. such cases.
5) the army objects on trdina peak (in gorjanci) that were seized by slovene forces during independence war get split following the internal republic borders along the ridge within yugoslavia; the radio tower is therefore on slovenian side while the barracks on croatian
6) the border along mura river follows its old riverbet from the 19th century and not the modern-day regulated course (leaving a larger part of land on croatian side)

croatia is expected to send army on its borders and slovenia is expected to go crazy on border control to prevent tourists from reaching croatia until croatia gives a statement regarding agreeing with the outcome

Battles

I've already mentioned the book titled On Killing - The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society by Dave Grossman (Lt. Col. of US Army). It gave some food for thought and I'm planning to write some of my speculation.

But what did the author write? Let's summarize.
He starts with the observation that most men has a natural resistance to kill (only 2% of men - those who have "predisposition toward aggressive psychopathic personality" - can go on killing without becoming a nervous wreck). This resistance is so high that even at times that our life is directly threatened (like others shoot at us) still difficult to overcome it. This resistance is the reason why infantry fire was so embarrassingly ineffective in the past 300 years - with the exception of machine guns - despite the fact that infantry weaponry (rifles) are reliable and accurate enough to cause massive losses among the enemy.
The author gives examples and sources, such as a Prussian experiment in the late 18th century, several reports and notices from several authors during 19-20th centuries (American, French, Israeli etc.), and an interesting work by a US Army historian who (and his coworkers) made mass interviews with fighting GIs during and after WWII. Also he cites his own conversation with veterans of WWII and Vietnam.
He gives new ideas on what's really happening on the battlefield. He compliments the widely known fight-or-flight model with two other options: in reality the soldiers can fight, posture, submit or flight. And most soldiers choose the second option.
Then he ponders on what enables killing (I'm gonna write more about this later) and how modern (post-WWII) armies achieve this. Then he compares these methods with the ways of contemporary mass media. His conlcusion is (after pointing out the exponential rise of violent crimes) that mass media has an undesirable effect on society.

What interesting for me is this resistance, and the enabling part. These things are actually give an entirely new way of looking warfare, and how and why battles were won.
For example the part officers (the demanding authority to kill) play in the enabling. When people (professional historians, history pros and other armchair generals) comparing the Hellenic phalanx with Roman manipulus and why the latter was more successful they compare everything but the officers. In the phalanx he's only one among those who stand in line and do the poking with pikes, but a Roman officer is one outside the formation and pressuring the soldiers to kill. It makes a huge difference if someone shouting in your ears "stab! stab! stab!" and generally pressuring you to kill. Especially if this one person is an exemplary one, a veteran whose skill in killing surpasses all the others in that particular unit. However noone talks about this because noone thinks about it.

I'll continue this sometimes, maybe only next weekend, we'll see. If you wish to read the book you can probably find it on libgen.

a/c

I usually turn off the a/c at work. Where I live and work it can drop down to 60-70 degrees often in the summer during the afternoons and evenings. The problem is my co-workers flip fucking shit when they figure it out.
I feel the air is unnecessary for the most part. It's loud as hell, and it blows papers around because it's up super high. We don't have any big equipment that heats up, we got rid of an old server that was the only thing I'd say that generated significant extraneous heat.
I feel like people freaking out over there not being air conditioning is just insane. You think they would die with the way they act. This old lady particularly freaks out but she also doesn't know how to work the thermostat. She says she can't read writing that small but I don't believe her.

I have now decided to post links to some bands that I think are vaguely in the same category.

That category is the 1980's pre-post-punk alternative rock and it's creative descendants that got developed further into more poppy direction in later years.

Над Українським болем - над Голодомором
За глум над нашим горем не йме кацапа сором
#Убий щоб не вродила свинособача піхва
Нових жидомонголів. Вже не накоять лиха.
Гниє кацапський ворог в степах у Приазов'ї
Добий його родину, гнилу в душі й назовні
#Убий, бо не спиняли тих вбивць, що ми скарали
Був на Майдані розстріл - вони лиш реготали
Лить сліз ніхто не буде, настав наш час відплати
Тож вбий свину дитину а потім її матір!
