Someone just posted in /emo/ about struggling to help their friends, but deleted the post before I had a chance to reply. I'm posting this reply anyway.

The first rule of crisis management is that you have to look after yourself before you can look after anyone else. In an aircraft safety briefing, they always tell you to put on your own oxygen mask before helping others. Soldiers are trained to establish a secure perimeter before assisting a wounded colleague. Firefighters are trained to plan their exit before entering a burning building. Divers are trained to never share their gas bottle with a stricken buddy unless they're sure that there's enough gas for two.

I think that the last example is particularly pertinent. Your natural instinct is to get stuck in and help someone in distress, but this instinct kills divers on a regular basis. Divers in distress do absolutely crazy things. They flail about and hyperventilate, wasting their precious gas supply. They kick, fight and struggle with their rescuers, often pulling off their mask or regulator. They lose control of their buoyancy, dragging a rescuer down to the depths. Even in calm and shallow water, a panicked diver can easily kill an unwary rescuer.

If you don't keep some amount of distance and prioritise your own wellbeing, there's a good chance that they'll drag you down with them. Nobody wants to feel like they're letting someone down, but you can't allow a distressed person to control the situation. If you become completely entangled in the situation, then you're in no position to provide assistance, you're just a secondary victim. You have to be prepared to take a step back, you have to be willing to say "this is beyond my abilities, you need professional help". If it comes to it, you need to phone an ambulance and let them deal with it.

Are you kidding? It takes a bit of practice. I didn't master the YMCA until I came of age. I think I still get the C the wrong way round.

So, who here's tagging along with this latest drugs craze?

I know there was at least one of you with good knowledge on this subject in a smoking thread we had on /b/ a while ago, but I thought we could do with a general dedicated thread now it seems more and more of us are getting them.

I've personally just invested about £50 for two Kanger e-Smart batteries with clearomisers, liquid and addendums and I'm quite enjoying this whole vaping business. It seems to be even more moreish than cigarettes, and I'm looking forward to going through some of the tastier flavours. What setups have you got? Any comment on my kit (510 battery, T3 clearomisers) if you're familiar with it? I seem to already be getting that sucking/gargling noise which is apparently to do with the liquid being in parts of the apparatus it shouldn't be, but have followed YouTube guides to try and clear it out to no avail.

Anyway, yes. Vaporising general.

It is, although tbh I'm more amazed that mechanical mods (i.e. no control circuitry whatsoever on the lithium battery, just a button to fire) are still being made. And people are still buying them, because they're pretty, or something?

>Actually, vapelad, why do people still buy mechanical mods?

Fuck knows. I don't see many of them these days, but it seems unbelievably daft that anyone is still risking an explosion for the sake of a worse vape. The responsible retailers have stopped selling unprotected devices and most others seem to just be getting shot of their old stock. A lot of "mech mods" still on the market have a sneaky hidden protection circuit, which seems particularly odd - for an extra £2 in components they could have made it VW/TC.

I suspect there are still some remnants of the daft macho vapebro subculture; some subset of that group think that a DNA250 or an RX300 isn't quite manly enough. I still can't quite believe that a 300 watt box mod is a thing you can buy.

>I don't see many of them these days
I was in a vape shop earlier today and they had a few fancy-looking brass ones (no prices, but no way they were less than £100). That's a canny point about them having "stealth" protection circuitry, I can well believe that's true. Still fucking stupid.

>I still can't quite believe that a 300 watt box mod is a thing you can buy.
I think my gaming PC hits just a little over that when running Furmark. Who on earth can even inhale this, and what kind of coil/wick arrangement do they use? A year back I dicked around with an RDA on ~0.2 Ohm dual claptons, got up to ~60W before the vape became simply obnoxiously thick, not to mention it was a massive hassle to run (and of course it ripped through juice like nobody's business). I've ended up with RDTAs, dialing everything right down to about 20W max between 0.5 and 1 Ohm single-coil clapton.

That "cloud chasing" is anything other than a temporary novelty is just confusing to me, but everyone needs a hobby I suppose. I can't imagine what a 300W vape would even feel like, but personal preferences aside... there's no way that's healthy, surely?

I've had a go on a 300w Sigelei at full power. Even with 1mg liquid I nearly fainted after the first puff. The vapour was boiling hot and so dense I could practically chew it. I had a sudden pang of empathy for Thomas the Tank Engine.

The really extraordinary thing was the atty - a Smok TFV12, the most insane piece of vaping hardware I've ever seen. It's a standard tank with disposable coils, but they offer a 14-coil head rated for 350w. I tried it at 70w and it produced literally no vapour. The box describes the tank as "explosion proof", which I assumed was a daft bit of poorly-translated engrish until I had a go on it. It's basically a thermonuclear reactor with a drip tip.

6609 Saul Bellow - Seize the Day
Themes of drowning and eventual rebirth ... great characterisation especially when it comes to Dr. Tamkin, I suspect we've all met one or two people who behave very much like that.

I had a look briefly at some SparkNotes or whatever essays else Google served up on the book and found it curious that a lot of them make a thing about the references made in this book, both ones made explicitly (the writers Tamkin talks about and the listed contents of his bookshelf) and implicitly (connections made to most of the character's names). It's not that they talk about them which is strange, it's that all of them are mentioned only once in the narrative. Except Korzybski, who's referred to by name then later by reference to his book Science and Sanity. You'd think there might be something noteworthy in the man who wrote a book on non-Aristotelian logic being mentioned in passing conjunction with Aristotle himself, but no. The only Google result for 'Korzybski seize the day' simply notes that he's referenced in the book.
I know Korzybski and his Institute of General Semantics aren't terribly popular but I suspect there's more going on in this context at least.

6612 Anne Cumming - The Love Quest
Absurd title aside, this memoir strikes me as an English, heterosexual equivalent to the Wojnarowicz and Rechy books earlier in the thread. While AIDS did for all three of them in the end, her more matter-of-fact, uncluttered obvious enjoyment of sex and lack of guilt regarding it in a post-war, pre-free-love way is quite admirable.
Her attitude, coming from an obviously very privileged upper class English late colonial background yet still being entirely unconcerned with it also reminds me of Amanda Feilding, although just ... less mental.

You haven't quite grasped how this works. Let me translate some of those terms for you:

>impeachable offence
Anything that will pass the House by simple majority.

>can stand up in court
Senators can bring themselves to vote for it.

While the Supreme Court haven't entirely ruled it out, they have declined to hear every appeal against impeachment that has been put to them, and if one takes the Constitution at its face then there is no right of appeal against conviction. However, to convict requires a two-thirds majority in the Senate and, unlike the filibuster, it's not a procedural rule but mandated by the Constitution.

I think I get similar feelings when I go on a nostalgia binge and watch pop-punk videos by the likes of Blink 182.


Good song and video, but what about it made you feel that way?

Kitten von Mew if you're wondering.

What is going on in the background here. Has Jessica Ennis been sent from a dark future to change history and kill John Connor?

I can guarantee she is the kind of girl that will fuck up your life. I can also guarantee that we all still would.

How am I supposed to find the track lists for documentaries when they aren't on IMDB? I've heard a few pieces of music on BBC4 programmes but they aren't on the beeb's site or IMDB and it's making me ever so slightly frustrated.

This seems to come up every couple of months or so.

The tl;dr version is that half the time it's generic production music because it's dirt cheap and suits programmes with no budget.

If it's a commercial release, then Shazam is remarkably accurate. As >>21560 says, a lot of incidental music in TV is licensed from music libraries rather than commercial releases, because the licensing is much cheaper and easier. It's also fairly common for a soundtrack to be specifically recorded - a composer on a modern digital workstation can knock out half an hour of original music in two days. If a composer was involved, they should be mentioned in the end credits.

Lads, I've been doing some of that thinking.

Were geniuses from the olden days actually that clever?

People still know of Archimedes over 2,000 years later when he's famous for knowing that the water in a bath rises when you place objects in it. It's the type of thing that these days even a toddler could point out to you. Was being a genius in them days basically being the first one to point something out to people, meaning they've got a massive head start over people today because lots of things hadn't been pointed out yet? It's only about 500 years since Isaac Newton pointed out apples fall of trees. If Archimedes was around these days would be working in a call centre in Nuneaton?

Also, how come the majority of the intellectual heavyweights from the past after the ancient civilization times are British or from the rest of the Anglosphere? Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, Paul Nuttall, Stephen Hawking, Michael Faraday, etc. You've basically got that French bloke who invented pasteurised milk and that's about it. Fair play you've got your fancy Dan artists and musicians like Mozart, Beethoven, Michaelangelo and all that but no actual scientist discovering things. Is it because they were too busy flouncing around looking and painting and listening to music and having those sex parties where they wear the little masks to actually do any serious thinking? Who's the Dutch intellectual heavyweight? The Spanish? Exactly.

There is generally regarded to be a big 4 nations from about 1000-1950 the English, the Italians the French and the Germans who did nearly everything worth mentioning in that period. The rest of the world is considered to have just sat around picking their collective noses during this time period. What changed in 1950 is that lots of European scientists (first the Jews then the Nazis) fled to the US and they suddenly became major player. and the Russian repeatedly took over places and annexed the great minds so that they became more relevant. This put the US in front of the big 4 and the Russian just behind the British in terms of doing anything relevant enough for someone to remember the name of someone a hundred years later (not that it has been a hundred years, but you can predict these things.

The shitty terms of the loans and the lend-lease the Americans gave to us during and after the war played a big part in this too. On the verge of bankruptcy we had to give up on a lot of our cutting research and handed it over to the US to pick up where we left off.
