Is there any explanation for the mysterious creature that the HMS Daedalus encountered on 6 August 1848?



File: 1677457514578.jpeg (1.05 MB, 3000x2249, A8427559-14F7-4C00-8671-9….jpeg)

Well people say it was a whale, but personally I think it could have been a giant or colossal squid seem from a distance and angle where you can only make out the tentacles. Either that or it was just a really obese sea snake that somehow ended up in the Atlantic.


Daedalus' sailors account does not fit a squid and no sea snake is large enough. You'd think sailors, who are familiar with marine life as common place as an octopus or squid, would have easily recognized it if it were one.


It could have been an oarfish. They’re known to grow to approximately the same size as the creature seen by the Daedalus. It’s rare for them to be on the surface too and they have a long snake like look to them.

What are some recommended stuff for learning Japanese? I've tried those Genki books but I don't find them helpful, they are also insanely over priced and way too expensive. I don't intend on ever going to Japan really and don't have any Japanese friends, I just want to watch anime and read manga and not much else so I don't think I need a lot of conversation focused stuff. What are some good free resources out there?


I looked into it’s while back and lingodeer seems pretty good. As for books I’m pretty sure you can find your “linux isos” online if you know where to look.

Any formal "resources" to learn languages (textbooks, classes, etc) are just memes and won't lead you anywhere. The most effective and engaging way to learn a language is to immerse in it. Check this guide for more information https://tatsumoto.neocities.org/


>Learn kana, practice reading and writing
>Get a grammar and dictionary (I'd recommend Tae Kim's because it's online and free)
>Install Yomichan and Anki
>Use Yomichannable manga sites to read and practice while watching anime etc VNs are pretty good for this too
It will take a long time, but this is the best way to do it.

I've been on the internet for a very long time, approximately since I was born. Seen a lot of different eras, but in the end, nothing seems to really be fun anymore. The media I once chose to consume out of passion is now more a chore. Is this the end of the hedonistic treadmill, or can one still somewhat rely on places like these? I hope at least to a small extent, that this can be a safehaven in a sense.

I was thinking the userbase here would be quite likely to relate, so I didn't mean to just make a blogpost. I hope I wasn't entirely wrong.

Yeah, you're probably right. This is why I have taken some enjoyment out of slice of life, it emulates the life I never had. Unfortunately, I don't think anyone wants to hang out with me, or vice versa. It feels like social behaviors have died in younger generations, as if everyone's just waiting to pass the time until they can get back to the web. It's really empty… maybe I'm just blaming society for my own social ineptitude, but it felt a lot easier when I was younger.

Was it really easier back then? Were people truly more sociable, more reasonable?


File: 1677459387830.jpeg (116.75 KB, 512x512, A4A81A4B-AAAF-4380-AE0D-F….jpeg)

Been online since around 2004 and I feel like I’m going through the same thing. If you’ve been through different eras, I’m guessing your brain is wired to enjoy the way things were back then but the internet is a different place today. It’s like living in a small town only for a big developer to come in and gentrify it. You loose those things you loved, you lose the sense of community you once had, and all of a sudden the village is a luxury complex full of people you don’t really have anything in common with. Another factor is age, as you get older you become more and more disillusioned with life and before you know it your too exhausted to do anything.

Tbh the internet back then was full of people with shitty political views, maybe less shitty but still shit. It’s just the internet back then was more of a niche thing and centralized social media platforms are designed to promote a kind of virtue signalling, moral posturing, and chest thumping behavior you couldn’t really do on anonymous or pseudo-anonymous discussion boards.

This is why I stopped watching anime. All it does is fill your head with unrealistic expectations of social relationships you’ll never have and don’t exist anymore. People don’t have long term friends, they have a irl social network they treat just like their Facebook account, if you don’t like someone just dump them because there’s a dozen more people to talk to. People don’t have romances, they just hook up on dating apps and endlessly scroll through profiles. People don’t even use their brains to do basic shit anymore. Got a problem? Use your brain? Nope, pull out the smartphone and Google it. We are literally becoming bots.


I find—at least for myself—that the internet has become too corporate. Much like real life, it seems everything is designed to suck money from you. If you aren't paying for it, you're blasted out the ass with ads.

At least for me, the internet is a horrible place to be, because there's nothing *for* me here. All it is now is people trying to make money. Youtubers follow a specific pattern, social media sites blast you with ads (and a lot of people there are generally insufferable). It doesn't feel like there's spaces to just *exist* online. And maybe it's always been like this and I'm not old enough to remember.


Today with more ways then ever to communicate and connect with people why are people less social? Well its because its all part of the plan to atomize and isolate for better control. Its all part of the plan its all about control. Divide and conquer theres a quite war being waged on the general public. Look into silent weapons for a quite war. Its not bullets and bombs for the cattle but vax and 5G towers.


It's like the internet is being gentrified. The wired is becoming less and less recognizable to me.

Ever since Kuz came, my IP has been blocked for three months.
I browse in Jarty and other site.


My ip range was banned because of spam a year ago. I was on the other side of the country for a week last year and tried posting from my hotel room only to find out THAT ip range was banned for spam too. Maybe mods are just quick to do IP range bans whenever there an autistic spammer or ban evader, without a care for how many legitimate users are affected, or maybe it's a ploy to sell more 4chan passes. But either way, I'm sure as hell not gonna pay to post on that zoomer infested shithole.

Aside from that my reddit account was banned with no explanation, and the other day I was kicked from the only discord server I was active on (and had used for 3 years) all because I said "lol" in response to some girl (or tranny, who knows these days) talking about her made up pronouns and how she wants to "kick white men in the balls" for not acknowledging her made up identity. Legit thought she was being ironic until I got kicked and asked messaged one of the mods asking why I was banned.

I have no where left to post at this point besides this place and one ancient forum that often goes days at a time without a single post. I hate how centralized the internet has become. Forums are dead, almost everyone is on a platform owned by one of the few big tech companies that effectively own the internet, and the most of the few exceptions have at least one power tripping hall monitor that completely ruins the experience.


samefag here, now that I've thought about it, I am pretty certain these ip range bans really are intended to get more users to buy 4chan passes.

That would also explain why they've made the captchas increasingly tedious. Stopping spam is just a false pretense.

If this was 2007, or even 2011, I probably would have considered paying for an account, but these days 4chan is hardly even worth spending more than a few minutes on, let alone paying to post on. On a semi-related note, anyone else remember when "4chan gold account" was just a meme?


holy shit, you could try changing your modem’s ip by resetting it and getting a new account


You mean on reddit? I suppose I could but I can't be fucked. I used to delete my account every year or so and make a new account as I don't like to leave too much of a digital footprint, but it was always annoying starting off with a new account again because most subs don't allow you to post unless your account is a certain age and you have a certain amount of comment karma, so I'd have to find subs that didn't have post requirements and make a bunch of posts pandering to popular opinion to rack up comment karma. Not worth the effort anymore.

As far as looks go i've fucked FAR worse. Hell, the woman I dated and was engaged to was around 350lbs. My dick can easily get hard over any adult woman under 60.

The only reason I wouldn't fuck her is that she's the exact type of bitch who would try to blackmail you or falsely accuse you of something afterwards.

Hey Anon, did you know that man isn't actually an Indian. Iron Eyes Cody, real name Espera Oscar de Corti was actually a Sicilian who pretended to be Indian for clout.

But yeah, basically the site got flooded by post-Trump election /pol/tards and butthurt losers who wanted to counter gay-op the entire site. 95% of the posts on 4chan these days are orgnised raids, bot spam or unironic feds looking to get a rise out of people/push a narrative.


>Hey Anon, did you know that man isn't actually an Indian. Iron Eyes Cody, real name Espera Oscar de Corti was actually a Sicilian who pretended to be Indian for clout.

I knew the guy was an Italian actor, but I didn't know he actually larped as a native american in real life a la Rachel Dolezal.


>pretended to be Indian for clout
For real? Lol. I thought that he only acted as an Indian character for the commercial.


While I admit that I spend lots of time at phone and tablet (they're more comfortable when you lie at your bed or outside your PC room), I still use PC because among others this is where I store all my stuff (documents, galleries, tv shows and movies etc). Also typing at PC is obviously more comfortable (even if you can use bluetooth keyboards at phones/tablets).


Also even before smartphone became a thing I was often using my phone to browse sites like 4chan (when 4chan was still good) when I was out or for reading video games walktrhoughs.

Life feels so static. For personal reasons as well as reasons that are affecting everyone.
We are going through an economic depression and life becoming worse and worse. The world feels as if it is slowly falling apart.
The middle class dream is dead and it feels as if you are the top 1% of the top 1% or you are living a low and miserable life.

i think we need to stop socializing men to be aggressive and possessive and we should all be frens and help each other. i love old mythology where men can be strong but also kind, and that actually accentuates their strenght. i want to be like that, i hate macho bullshit


The macho male archetype was created by hollywood


imagine being a prehistorical man and you just got done fighting a boar or something. you're tired and shaken and you see another man and you greet eachother with a smile. it would probably be the most beautiful thing to see, another creature of the same species as you. imagine how conforting that would be. it's cute how humans just smile to eachother instinctively, nowadays you can't even do that without coming off as a creep to women or a homosexual predator to men. by the way i mentioned men and not women because it's more common to see women smile while many men try to look tough all the time.

It was all subconscious. Her rational self wanted to stay, but the proposal put strain on the relationship and she finally caved in to it.

Don’t overthink it. Humans are complicated, and there are plenty of other people out there.


Hmm, maybe you're right. I don't know how I should treat her when I inevitably see her again


Just pretend you didn't notice her, what happened to you also happened to me, I just memory hole'd her from existence in my case. People have more important things to care about.


Perhaps she's involved with someone else and is trying to extricate herself from what she sees as an awkward relationship?
Plus, I learned the hard way that being smooth with people gets you more results than being straight up blunt.
I've had people tell me since I was a kid that I was one nasty, rude young man but since I got into uni and read Robert Greene and Dale Carnegie, I realised flattery rubs the sweet spot for most people.
Tl;dr: Try to be more subtle when pointing out flaws and chip in a word or two of flattery in conversations.
Also if you're well off you could send her something nice. A book or a string of pearls.
Good luck, Anon!


Anon I used to be like you. I think you are a normal guy who overthinks things due to insecurity/lack of experience and you are a little socially awkward around women. Nothing wrong with any of that.

I don't think you ever had a chance with this girl. I think she knew you liked her so she kept you around for lab help and attention/validation. She leaned on you for emotional support and relief from boredom. She tried to turn you into a beta orbiter but you weren't happy with that role.

Next time you need to look out for clear indicators of interest when talking to girls. Brushing their hair, laughing at everything you say, hitting you playfully, etc. Some girls do this to every guy to lead them on so you have to be careful and test them (this is a whole art of its own) to see if they actually like you or just want attention.

The fact of the matter is that it's a GAME when you talk to women. It's no fun if you just admit you like the girl, game is over at that point. It's a push and pull. That tension builds attraction. There are times when you need to stop chasing her and let her chase you. That initial game phase creates an emotional imprint on a woman's mind that she can reminisce about until she's old and grey.

Ok, so:

1st: The structure of atoms is not as such, that is a simplification given to high school students. The real atoms are a pile of uncertainties

2: The solar system does make spirals in space, however, they aren't double helixes, so no relation with DNA. Plus, that atom spiral is not an accurate diagram as well.

3: What the fuck do you mean by "shedding"?

4: The vax is supposed to make you sick for a while. However, certain people can have adverse effects, like with LITERALLY ANY TREATMENT. For example, cold showers, while they are beneficial for many reasons, may give you a thermal shock if it's all at once. As such, people who aren't indicated for the vaxx can have adverse effects.

While your ideas about what's happening are interesting, please elaborate further, and please research the veracity of content you post regarding this.

There's another interesting take imo which is about Karma. Karma means action basically despite what I learned in school about Karma as a sort of social credit score. Maybe at some level it is that.

In another more interesting way Karma is the pure action of.. action. Using terms loosely its the moment when cause and effect meet. This is something you can witness because it occurs in the mind. I think you can say that meditation is about watching karma, but it's not technically the right use of the term.

At any rate, if you wanna what kind of choice there is, you can go look at it, and you'll see exactly what it is that makes the world tick. You can track the action and reaction in the mind, and if there's any option in regards to the reaction that's where it should be. We can't talk about it very well because language only tells us the names of things, not what they are. I think that's why we don't have an answer to the question of whether we have free will or not. Because whatever it is we have, we just have.


it does


>you should fell great, free will is exhausting.

Yeah i hate freewill cause if i fuck up i have no one to blame but myself


you accept it. just like you accepted the time pre-dating your birth and your birth etc…


Everything is the result of causality so true free will is impossible even in theory. There is nothing magical going on in your brain that allows it to act independently of causality. >>24
>Should individuals be responsible for their actions?
Just because free will doesn't exist doesn't mean people shouldn't be responsible for their actions in the sense that their actions shouldn't have consequences. A functional society requires rules/laws, enforcement of said rules and laws, and punishments given to the offenders of said rules/laws.
