so lainchan has 50 daily active users, about.

do you know how tiny that is?

literally nobody cares about us.

we are not trendsetters, we are not indicators of anything that's gonna be "hot", we are worthless to advertisers.

stop being paranoid. it prevents you from recognizing the real threats and having energy to deal with them.

2 Books:
>1. Jens Mühling: Schwarze Erde
The book is from an author who travelled through Ukraine (including crimea and donbass) and draws a portrait of the country, also explaining historical b*ckstory. Very interesting imhotep, however not translated
>2. Jürgen Todenhöfer - Inside IS, 10 Tage im islamischen Staat
Again a travel report. The author contacted the Islamic State and got some kind of visa from them and then travelled their lands. Todenhöfers views are pretty retarded tbh, however he is really good at doing interviews and afaik nobody has tried such a thing before. From writing style and information content and stuff, I rank it worse than the other one, however, it is more spectacular.

Well I bought this knife recently for like $8 or something.
Its pretty nice, and just small enough. I got tired of hesitating to use my actual knife for mundane things, or having to re-sharpen it all the time. Got a pack of 50 blades for like 5 bucks or something online.. Having a razor sharp blade on hand comes in handy alot more than you might think. You can do anything with this thing. Maybe even take over the world. :-)

Also my friend gave me this book lol

Where did you get that knife? It's very simplistic and I feel like I should get one sometime.

>>28264
I got it on amazon, yeah yeah I know, but I'm poor lol.
I have seen it in stores for a similar price though, but with no car I can't really get there on a whim..
Its the Gerber EAB Lite. I'd definitely recommend it. Pick up a pack of blades with it, and make sure you get the lite.

  No.28292

>>28291
I recommend the non-LITE version, which has an even simpler appearence and a sturdier clip.

  No.28293

>>28292
I actually know someone who has that version, and I recommended the lite because I find it to be much more ergonomic, it just feels better and more precise in my hand.
Really though the difference is trivial, both are good knives and it comes down to personal preference in the end.

I recently repaired/upgraded the computer I destroyed in an overclocking disaster and am very satisfied with the new system. It is an Intel Core i5 4690K processor on a MSI Z97 gaming motherboard. I would definitely recommend these components to others.

Next up I want to replace my smartphone.

I'm eyeing an LG G5, but it seems that by every single metric it is a downgrade from my LG G3. It makes no sense whatsoever, but the CPU and GPU are weaker, the screen size is smaller, the screen-to-body ratio is worse, and yet the phone is somehow still heavier. The only improvement I can find is that it has 4GB of memory instead of 3GB, but is that really worth sacrificing everything else?

I honestly think I'm just going to buy another LG G3 on eBay for $150 instead of wasting money on a soykaftier phone just because the number is higher.
