As with any other medium the body can be shaped in various ways. However it being linked to the one wielding it and having direct influence on their mind, it can be more difficult to work with.

>1) Where are you at?
doing decently well. been lifting for almost two years now. finished my bulk the week after Christmas and am now working on my cut.
>2) What is your goal?
my immediate goal is to cut down at least 25-30 lbs with a max of 40. i started my cut at 200lbs and would like to get down to 160 if possible but if i get a good bodyfat% before 160 then that works for me too. it's less about the number and more about how much fat i have.
>3) What have you achieved so far?
i've been regularly cooking my own meals for over a year now and have cemented the habit of going to the gym 4x a week. increased my bench from 105 at the start to 185 and overall look much healthier than i did before. regularly working out and dieting has also helped me work through things mentally and i can now handle delayed gratification. in the short term i've lost probably 6lbs or so from my cut which isn't perfectly efficient (i should be down more like 10-12lbs) but i'm working on it. i really need to start doing cardio on my off-days but fuck i hate doing cardio lol.
>4) How do you plan to progress from there?
once i reach my cut goal i'll probably go back to bulking. my long-term fitness goal is to reach 185lbs at 12-14% bodyfat with a 225 bench (two plates). i've never really seen myself as a big guy so anything past that feels like too much. during my cut i've also been nailing down the form for squats (which i didn't do before) so once my next bulk comes around my legs are gonna get much bigger than they are now with the intent of ensuring my upper and lower body aren't disproportionate.

>neglected my body for years
now is as good as ever to get back into it :) good work sushi!


I've been losing weight since I got a more active job and made an effort to stop drinking so much. My goal is to keep losing weight till at I'm whatever my doc says is a healthy number I guess. Lost about 30lbs so far.

Always been kinda skinnyfat, tryna to get more skinnytoned before going to the beach this summer.


>1) Where are you at?
I am strong, my body is refined and my reflexes are sharp.
>2) What is your goal?
To become the strongest swordsman.
>3) What have you achieved so far?
Lesser men stand no chance facing me, I destroy the uninitiated.
>4) How do you plan to progress from there?
To challenge a dojo near my place of living.

Živijo! Nepričakovan Slovenc v Sushichanu alert :0
Kaj dogaja?


Kokr vedno, komi čakam na mofucon decembra. Kaj to rišeš?


Uau, rad bi tudi jst obiskal ta Mofucon, škoda, saj ne živim v Sloveniji :/ Morda bom šel na knjižni sejem, ampak videli bomo
Rišem character sheets (nisem prepričan kako se po slovensko reče) za vizualni roman, ki ga želim napisati. Gre za zorenje enega fanta, ki postaja član študentskega sveta, da bi povečal svojo samozavest. Navdihnil me je drug VN, no seveda ga ne bom skopiral


Škoda da nemoreš na mofucon.., Če bi rad naredu VN iz tvoih risb lahko programiram VN ko najdem čas.

Same sushi roll as >>458, I've been improving myself

File: 1600932084494.pdf (1.09 MB, 470 5_14.pdf)



when I was a young child, I loved youtube. I subscribed to many channels. Most were comedy, some were news. smosh, fred, a lot of the big guys. some more esoteric people who I can't entirely remember, like this woman who sat at her desk and worked for a media company as a youtuber. eventually the company shut her channel down.

I stumbled upon one creator who I remember a great deal. her name was allofthetrash. I enjoyed her bizzare, low-res letsplays of unheard of cartridge games from the 70s and 80s. at some point I stopped watching the videos, and she eventually deleted her channel.

I still look for those videos, but have yet to find any.

as I grew older, I would find my way into internet communities. a chatroom in kingdom of loathing. the official forum for a web-based video game about forum trolls.

my favorite was the /r9k/ room in a mouse-themed multiplayer platforming game. edbye, oldliquids. lexie. funny people and a funny game.

but I always ended up getting banned or exiled from these communities. always eschewed. this pattern held strong through my teens. I don't think I was in control. It was autonomous.

I didn't go to high school. I went to community college. I had friends, and that let me think I was socially well-adjusted. But eventually I would use extreme political views would as a way of pushing them away.

Quoting "
You can construct a digit sequence guaranteed not to be on the list. But that digit sequence is not guaranteed to be a natural number. The digits of a natural number have some finite length beyond which you only get spaces/zeros, but the digit sequence you get can be infinitely long with infinitely many nonzero digits.

Is this really a safe rock to stand on?
We agree that ℕ is not finite. (Yes every exhibitable n must be, else it could not be exhibited.) But if there can be arbitrarily large naturals cannot there be arbitrarily long digit sequences representing them? i.e. Are you sure that a non-finite digit sequence cannot represent a Natural?

tldr: Is there a need to distinguish 'Actual' v 'Potential' infinities?


0 is representable as a finite list of digits, and for any natural number n representable by a finite list of digits, n+1 is also representable as a finite list of digits. By induction, every natural number is representable as a finite list of digits.


Thank you all. I just grocked my mistake. It was 07/10/22 (Sun) 11:53:29 No.1113 when I asked my stupid question. And only today have I understood what you were telling me.
An infinite sequence of digits WITH a decimal point gets ever closer to a real number. Without the point it could be anything at all, so not really a number.
Love to Sushi. Thanks for tolerating an idiot.


It was a valid and non-trivial question


Hi sushi roll I’m OP. Maybe you will see this even though you replied two years ago.

It’s okay. I’m a mathematician. I do research in computational linguistics. It’s okay. I liked it.

Post things you've learnt recently!

From 'Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable':
Cornstalks. In Australia, especially in New South Wales, from colonial times a name for youths, perhaps from their being taller and more slender than their parents.

That made me laugh, especially because it reminded me of myself.

Another bit of latin in the english language that I find interesting is not too surprising, yet somewhat enlightening if I may say so.
It's the word "essence", which from the latin word, comes to mean "that which it is", with "esse" meaning "to be".
The -ence termination is not proper of latin, but english, just like we say "importance" and such words.
Of course it makes sense, for that is the meaning of essence: that which something is at the more fundamental level. Though sometimes we interpret the word much in the sense of "substance", that is, the material of which it is composed.
Now substance does have a latin root, but to the extent of my knowledge, only in the prefix sub- which as we all know means "under". Sub-stance would thus means "that which stands beneath"

Sorry for all this, I'm just an etymology freak, and quite frankly I think it's really interesting to know what the atomic elements of the words we use are and where they originate. They also give some material to use them creatively in speech.


Your explanation of 'essence' was interesting, and led me to consider whence comes 'quintessence'/'quintessential'. I knew that the 'quint' bit must mean five, but there's a deeper explanation than that:
>The ancient Greeks said there are four elements or forms in which matter can exist–fire, air, water, and earth; the Pythagoreans added a fifth, the fifth essence–quintessence–ether, more subtle and pure than fire, and possessed of an orbicular motion, which flew upwards at creation and formed the basis of the stars. Hence the word stands for the essential principle or the most subtle extract of a body that can be procured.
from Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable.

Most carnivorous mammals are grouped together in the same taxonomical order, fittingly called 'carnivora', and these fall into two main suborders: feliformia (cat-like) and caniformia (dog-like), the former being the familiar felines, including the hiena, the latter a broader set including bears, racoons, and even seals, as well as canines like wolves and dogs. They turn out to share similarities in their skullbones.
A sibling order to the carnivora are the 'ungulates', which are mammals with hooves, like the horse and the giraffe. Among these is a mammal that used to have hooves but now only has vestigial finger-like appendages in their skeleton: the cetaceans.

Waves or wave like things form any time there are two kinds of things that convert into each other. Sound waves for instance are the interplay of pressure and motion or momentum. Visible light is part of the electromagnetic spectrum which true to the name, is the interplay of electric charge and magnetic fields.

The thing I learned recently is that unlike ears, which hear a continuum along the sound spectrum, eyes only activate to 4 specific ranges of frequency. It is as we only hear 3 different pitches and have to infer the existence of the intermediate pitches by the relative volume of the pitches we hear.

And it's this fact about human eyes, rather than anything about light, that gives us the color wheel in art theory.


I just learned China throws people in jail for drawing 3D hentai and forces them to confess an apology.

I've heard both good and bad things about this show, should i watch it? what is your opinion on it sushi roll?
10 posts and 2 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


I've watched Mr. Robot five times and thinking about rewatching again for the start of 2023.


First season was interesting. Shy, depressed hacker hacks stuff. Then it kind of gets a bit over the top where it's hackers vs bad guys. Then it just gets absurdly over-the-top and Hollywood. For that reason, I can't really recommend it unless you don't mind suspending belief and don't expect serious writing (because honestly…it gets bad. Real bad).


File: 1675455700076.jpg (84.9 KB, 728x410, mr-robot-fsociety-new-york….jpg)

in some ways it's good, in other ways it sucks

basically i will echo the consensus here, first season good very grounded in real hacker shit, it's like the hacker show you always wanted a hacker collective fighting the megacorps, only as it progresses the show gets less and less grounded and feels increasingly like a comic book.

when it comes to craft the show is top notch, the cinematography the pacing, the dialogue, the acting, all excellent, it's just they lost the plot and what the show is even supposed to be __about__. It stops being about hackers and becomes some weird avante guard bullshit at some point.

what i really dislike is the forced romance with this basic ass white girl, they make her character increasingly less sympathetic ( she becomes a corporate stooge who later looses touch with reality ) they kill off all the minor characters who make the show interesting ( like literally all of them ) and then keep the most absurd characters going.

there's other issues that are indicative of the times: cliff hangerism and an increasingly unlikely series of twists but by the time you've had enough you're really too invested in the show to stop watching.

I think people should watch it because it makes you imagine what a good hacker show could have been, maybe one day we'll get that.

It is very memeable also so can mine a lot of good screenshots out of it


I remember watching this and liking the first four episodes I think, but then remember the writing taking a complete nosedive afterwards.


If you decide to watch it follow along with the archived episode discussion threads on the /r/mrrobot subreddit. Sam Esmail and the writers regularly lurked in there and would throw shit in to later seasons to troll the redditors. Following along with some of the crazier theories week to week was a pretty integral part of my experience with it (especially the rantings of the user lost_tsol), and it's hard to imagine the whole thing being half as fun if you just did the normal binge.

As for the show itself it's a pretty great exercise in style, and has a lot of fun surreal moments, and arguably ends on a pretty solid note for the main character, but I do think it wastes a lot of time trying to play sleight of hand with the audience and introduces plenty of ideas and characters that basically go nowhere or add very little when everything shakes out plotwise.

Overall give it a watch for something that feels like nostalgia for the paranoid 2015/16 zeitgeist and is above average for tv in terms of cinematography and presentation. The plot is great as something to ride along to and experience, but ultimately the story of the show is pretty simple and straightforward and much of what feels complex about it is smoke and mirrors.
