/int/ thread Anonymous 102467
Can we get a thread going where we discuss about where we're all from? I wanna hear about your cities, countries or cultures. :D
Ignore the peepo, I am not Romanian.
going to open the thread by showing my appreciation to Madagascar for having almost all of its Wildlife unique to the country
no you didn't, but maybe that's who you free staters think we are smh
I would love to see Madagascar someday, the avenue of the Baobabs is a dreamscape to me compared to Ireland (tansperging aside kek)
I love my country and Wales (my other country) for the seasonality most! The changing foods, feelings, smells, air, its beautiful at all times.
My dream countries to visit are:
Cajun america (for the food)
Nigeria and surrounding regions (for the food)
South china (for the food)
and Russia (for the craic)
The trees over there are really strange looking. Africa is full of these alien-looking landscapes. Russia is a good choice also, aunt and uncle of my actually travelled to the former Soviet Union while it was still a thing.
kek, níl, chroith mo

Getting me hyped to travel after all the restrictions are lifted OP. I promise just to lurk now
Lmao no matter where I go on the internet, I always manage to find fellow Irish people. Incredible.
we shall now ban any others from posting and change this from an /int/ thread, to an /ire/ thread.
Malagasy posters may join, they are overseas fenians :D
hello i am moroccan n_n i once saw another nona in a different /int/esque thread from my country i hope she is doing well ( and every other nona as well )
i hope to see more girls from the maghreb region ( or even just arabs ) it makes me happy knowing that there are girls similar to me in the world that live close to me
have a great day everyone ^_^ and lmk if you have any questions concerning my country i will be happy to answer them :3
I'm originally from Poland but moved to Dubai like last week :D
From another perspective, that's actually a horrendous problem. All that wildlife hanging on the thread of that one country keeping on accepting it, resisting rolling over it to expand, and not doing anything else to screw it. At least some of it should be duplicated to somewhere else for the sake of security. Let's say, to some place that has already anhialated its original ecosystem. Or to an artificial island somewhere. That'll send a message to anyone relishing the prospect of doing horrific damage ecological damage.
Moving a shit-tonne of animals to a new area to support your human ideals about what's right is ecological damage
Is it? Then it must be right! Do you have an idea of just how many people rave and proselytize about how saved one gets from biting bullets? Maybe sometimes just from their favorite bullets.
Why the hell would you willingly move to that desert shithole. Did you marry an oil sheik?
from the nordic country sweden,
winter is here and the night is filled with cold and the dark forest. Wolf sounds pretty common too. Slow paced culture, much comfy. Hot choco on daily basis. Norwegian cats very cute. Wish ya'all nice year ,:3
Did you bake loaves today nord-anon
Et bonjour, discovered this place quite recently. >>115561
Ahhh lucky you anon, I would love to live in any nordic country, I love the could and long nights days sound like a dream.
Whishing you all a pleasant time and lovely year (futur and what's left of it)
>Ignore the peepo, I am not Romanian.
And here I was excited about finding another Romanian.
Marry me so I can move there, too.
I live in NC, USA, and the American south is just as bad as it sounds.
Could you please share some facts about Iraq? Do you live there? Any cool stories?
I made a thread here about folk fashion here once and people called me racist and nazi, why are Americans like this ;-;
not really, life here's boring and i have wasted 10 years of my life here, college graduates here dont have a future and aren't being given jobs, after college im planning on moving abroad again to study graphic design, also we have a greedy government who won't use the big amount of oil we have to improvize the country and salaries here are really low and people don't get payed much
amerimutts are a lost cause, specially gen z
every generation seems dumb when they're young, that's how it works
This what an engineered culture war does to the mind; makes everything, even what kind of shoes you wear, political.
Folkish and traditional clothes can be so beautiful, which specific style do you like?
Nta but I like modern takes like Lena Hoschek sorta stuff.
Damn, I'm in love…
If I ever win at the lottery I know where I'm gonna burn some money
petie fille kabyle…
It's so dumb, because folk fashion exists all around the globe, it's absolutely not a white only thing, and even less a nazi only thing.
I personally enjoy collecting vintage shawls and bonnets (which are all region specific) to wear them with cute alt fashion. I also enjoy german 70s dirndls despite being french.
Yeah that particular piece is ugly. So what? That's not representative, why pick it? Anyone can google and see she's designed tons of pretty stuff.
I wasn't being sarcastic, I genuinely like it, I'm just a boring person nonie. From the website I also saw quite a few beautiful red dresses and really nice shirts/blouse thingy. It seems to have quite a few patterns skirts but I don't like those.>>115992
Look nice, if I wasn't afraid of being accused of cultural appropriation or that I insult a culture or whatever, I would try to wear sarees, I just find them so pretty but I don't think I could pull it off
Looks good! what are those? some kind of rolled puff pastry with chocolate in the middle?
two months too late but i really enjoyed my canadian thanksgiving in october. celebrated it at two different cottages, beautiful fiery colours everywhere. part of me wants to go to new england in the fall but i guess it isn't much different from the canadian scenery? any anons from there?
its the media and people who run it
All folk clothing is nice, but I especially like our local ones (dirndl, in Austria) and baltic folk fashion like pic related.
Then i must be a boring person too, because i think that dark outfit looks great, its reserved yet elegant, like something a person who knows their wort, but isn't seeking attention would wear.
Hey fellow European, I'm in IT, how hard is it to find work as a foreigner in your country? Is there any website beside LinkedIn or indeed you could recommand? >>115561>>116001
Same question as above, with one added in, how difficult is it if I only know English?
I thought that too but I have a lot of difficulties but that could be because of my profile is too junior or doesn't have what people are looking for. Also covid doesn't help
any fren from chile? please let's hang up
Anyone from HK? Kowloon specifically
This image is so cute holy shit aaaaaaahhhhh
I want to go there really bad, I'm dying to….
I go and look at the insane food and wet markets on google street view from time to time. I want to find an little old hong kong lady and bring her treats and gifts and a bunch of ingredients and ask her to cook something for me. Its a dumb dream though lol.
If you go abroad don't study graphic design its a money hole, go for industrial design. Way better prospects.
It's a nice place to visit! Living, maybe not so much. But after being marooned in the states for like a year, I do miss the food a lot.
>I go and look at the insane food and wet markets on google street view from time to time.
Yeah, I would say that the markets are nice. They're quite crowded though. There's one near me called the Ladies' Market that sells a LOT of bootleg shit (pic related). I think it's actually become a tourist attraction in recent years.
>I want to find an little old hong kong lady and bring her treats and gifts and a bunch of ingredients and ask her to cook something for me.
Never tried this myself, but they're usually nice in my experience! The best jar of fish sauce I've ever had was a gift from a little old lady in a street market at 2 AM. Tried finding her again but she was gone the next week :(
Anyways, I'm glad to hear that people are interested in Hong Kong! Sad that Kowloon is still the forgotten sister, but I'd be happy to answer any questions you have.
Nta but I’m so sad they handed HK back to China as it means I can no longer stay there indefinitely as a British person. You’re so lucky to live there anon!
Despite that, I’d love to learn Cantonese. I like that they use the superior traditional characters. It seems that there are hardly any Cantonese resources though and you have to just learn a tutor.
Do you speak Cantonese anon? How is it taught there, even for mother tongue speakers?
Ah, I remember going to Ladies Market during my visit. It was fucking fantastic buying bootleg shit while my poor father and the father of the family were were staying with had to chaperone my teenage weeb ass.
I do! I’m not too sure what you mean by “how” it’s taught, but learning Cantonese has become a kind of political issue recently. I think most young kids are taught Mandarin now, and most subjects are taught in Mandarin.
>It seems that there are hardly any Cantonese resources though and you have to just learn a tutor.
Yeah, Cantonese is pretty difficult to learn for native English speakers. Especially speaking: there are 9 tones while Mandarin has like 4. You will unfortunately always have a heavy accent. But in terms of resources, I use a flashcard program called Anki for learning other languages. It’s super useful, and quite popular for learning kanji. Could work well for learning traditional characters :3
> You’re so lucky to live there anon!
Thank you! The city does have its problems though, especially with China being in control lol. I do wish Britain was still in control. Getting a citizenship also requires you to live there for 8 years, so it’s a huge commitment.
>>116334>I’m not too sure what you mean by “how” it’s taught
Sorry, I wasn’t clear. I meant do you use Cantonese textbooks to learn the grammar properly there? Or everyone just learns from speaking to their parents? If you use textbooks, which ones?
I’m Scottish and everyone in Scotland speaks some level of Scots but it isn’t taught in schools and all the classes are in English. I’m wondering if you pick up Cantonese outside of school or whether you actually study it properly and have all your classes in Cantonese.
Oh, and I already speak some Japanese so that’s why I like Cantonese as the characters are the same but Cantonese has some of it’s own special ones, right?
Ohh, that makes sense. I can't speak for too many others, but I learned mostly from my grandparents. My grandma taught me grammar and writing while my grandpa taught me mostly how to yell and swear at people. I'm sure that there are textbooks somewhere, though.
>Oh, and I already speak some Japanese so that’s why I like Cantonese as the characters are the same but Cantonese has some of it’s own special ones, right?
Yes, there are written cantonese-exclusive characters. A lot of Japanese characters look similar to traditional characters, but they're pronounced differently and often have different meanings. Japanese characters are often "squigglier". I guess having some experience with kanji could be helpful.
> I’m wondering if you pick up Cantonese outside of school
Depends on what you mean by "pick up". I know that some of my friends learn/practice by watching old cantonese movies/shows (I can recommend you some good ones, if you like). To read and write really well you need to study it a lot. It's easier to learn with a teacher though, like with mandarin. But I know that, since English is a very common language here, many people mix English and Cantonese in their sentences. So if you forget some words, just say it in English and people should understand. Can't say the same for the other way around :p
Oh, and what do you mean by "some level of Scots"? Do you speak like Gaelic there? Or like a special dialect of English?
>>116352>I can recommend you some good ones, if you like
>Oh, and what do you mean by "some level of Scots"? Do you speak like Gaelic there? Or like a special dialect of English?
Scots a language/dialect (depending who you ask) that is similar to English but with Scottish pronunciations and words. Some of the grammar is different too. It’s mostly spoken on the east coast and in the south. There is Ulster Scots in Northern Ireland but I don’t think it is that common.
Gaelic is a separate language spoken on the west coast of Scotland and in Ireland (also known as Irish). I’m from the east coast so I don’t speak any Gaelic but I wish I did.
What language did you mostly speak in school? English or Mandarin?
I've been obsessed with the old kowloon since I discovered a short YouTube video talking about it a few years back. How it was build, how people live there, there's a manga (pic related) made by my favorite mangaka that happens in that neighbourhood.
What do you mean? Is not a neighbourhood of HK?
I thought Kowloon was inside of HK? Kowloon walled city made it famous internationally though, I feel like one of the first places you have to go is the park, and the little Memorial.
>>116334>>I do! I’m not too sure what you mean by “how” it’s taught, but learning Cantonese has become a kind of political issue recently. I think most young kids are taught Mandarin now, and most subjects are taught in Mandarin.
This is beyond criminal, are you serious? In schools or at home? The parents don't teach their kids Cantonese by choice or its only the schools??
Sorry nonas, I'm pretty stupid. I kind of meant that most people refer to the island of Hong Kong (which is separated by the Victoria Harbor) when they talk about HK. Kowloon is more of the mainland. It's cheaper to live here than on the island by a few thousand. Rent is still stupid expensive though. There are apartments that are like 80 square feet.>>116385>Is not a neighbourhood of HK?
Kowloon is a peninsula. IDK much about geography, but theres a mountain range, a harbour, a strait, and some other things. It's also connected to Shenzhen, you can walk across a bridge there. But if you want to know more about it geographically, I think it's better if you google it.
>there's a manga (pic related) made by my favorite mangaka that happens in that neighbourhood.
Looks cool! I don't really read manga but I'll check it out. Though Macau is more known for gambling and stuff, Kowloon does have a bit of a seedy history, so it would be cool to write about.>>116390>I thought Kowloon was inside of HK?
I'm not too sure what you mean. Sorry, my English is not that good. But Kowloon is controlled by the HK government. HK is made of Kowloon, Hong Kong Island, New Territories, and a bunch of other islands. It is separated from the island by Victoria Harbour.
> Kowloon walled city made it famous internationally though, I feel like one of the first places you have to go is the park, and the little Memorial.
Yeah, that's basically all it's known internationally for. It's very interesting though, and I do recommend checking it out as a tourist. >>116392>This is beyond criminal, are you serious?
Yes. China wants to erase Cantonese pretty much. They only want one dialect, and are starting to forbid kids from speaking it in school.
>The parents don't teach their kids Cantonese by choice or its only the schools??
I don't know too much about education of young kids these days, but there are international schools that are very prestigious which only teach in Mandarin. They have better test scores and stuff. For parents, well, it depends on the parent. Some like that putonghua is very popular now because it helps with getting jobs, while others want to preserve cantonese. I think most will teach their kids though, since the vast majority of people still speak it.
This is not news, in fact China has lead a campaign to stamp out all dialects at least twice in it's entire history. China culling dialects is nothing new, special, or noteworthy.
>This is beyond criminal, are you serious? In schools or at home? The parents don't teach their kids Cantonese by choice or its only the schools??
You are aware of how simplified Chinese came into existence, correct?
>Taiwan..Tibet..The Uhigurs in Xianjang
You do realize that China used to have dozens of dialects that were wiped off the face of the planet? The fact you can only recall those-yet-to-be-assimilated speaks volumes on how effective the Chinese reformation system is. You've literally already fallen for Chinese propaganda.
>I didn't think they had beef with the Cantonese themselves,
I don't think they have beef with the cantonese being cantonese, they have beef with any dialects in China being spoken not being standard Simplified Chinese. Period. It is not about them being cantonese, it is about them not speaking the proper Chinese.
>>116478> It is not about them being cantonese, it is about them not speaking the proper Chinese.
Yes, this is pretty much it. I believe that they want to get rid of the other dialects to unify China and its other territories.
Hello miners :D
Any latinas here?
I'm colombian lol
Share your hot chocolate recipe?
I'll start :
15-25 g black chocolate (depends if I want my wholate with a lot of chocolate or not)
A cup or around 25/30 cl milk (I use rice milk since I can't handle cow milk and since it's already a bit sugary, I don't put sugar in my chocolate)
A spoonful of heavy creme (creme fraîche for the French)
Optional : A few drops of vanilla extract
Melt the chocolate in the milk
Add the creme and the vanilla
Optional : cover in whipped cream
Optional : add a few marshmallows
2ch/dev/ is trash full of moids and pickme cunts
So sad how much China seems to hate its own culture. They have such a rich and diverse history.
You say that as a foreigner or as Russian?
as a russkaya ofc otherwise i wouldn't be able to understand it, although a lot of radfems i've known are ex-2cherettes themselves
why so much hate for pickmes? for some women it might be only way not to end up alone
Women hate pickmes for the same reason men hate simps.

What do you mean “dumping sexual marketplace”?
that looks so uncomfortable to ride
the photoshop is well done but I couldn't find any article about it
I'm Argentinian. I would like to hang out with an argie miner so hmu if you're out there.
I'm learning russian and for some reason I haven't heard of 2chan. This is a great find lol
do not go anywhere except /dev/ or you'll be ultra blackpilled, the moids here are so fucking disgusting and misogynistic, 4chinz can't compare
not a big surprise, that's expected from 2nd world and 3rd world scr*tes
Can confirm that, saw some screenshots of them sperging hard about misogyny, instead of normie moid rape isn't that common and women aren't oppressed unless they live in iraq, it's more like agreeing that women are/were oppressed throughout history but that it's not a problem, it's just natural and that's where our place is supposed to be.
i'm from turkey and my god. what a shithole our country has turned into especially in the last few years. i would move out to an another country in a heartbeat if i could
I'm from Montana in the USA. I spent most of my early life in Plentywood near the Canadian border, but moved about 5 years ago to Missoula
I live in the North Country region of New York State in the US. I'm only 15 minutes drive from the Canadian border and live on the shore of Lake Champlain. We have a local cryptid dinosaur who supposedly lives in the lake.
What was the attempted coup life for you? Did it change your life at all?
no effect whatsoever. i also believe that it was staged kek
i'm from mexico and i can't wait to leave this shithole
You'd think this is obvious BS but I actually met people like this online.
C-Can I drink mate with you? I'm not argie but I love Argentina
ayrt, sure thing anon. I don't drink mate myself but pretty much everyone I know does. Why do you like Argentina? I really want to move abroad myself.
Also I don't remember making that post but I'm 100% it was me because I like to drunkpost from time to time. Unless it wasn't actually me and there's some other argie miner out there…
I just mentioned mate because it's what I know. I went to Argentina around 2012 or 2013 can't remember exaclty, and I loved the country and how the people treated me. The whole experience was really enjoyable. I also like the music
I usually don't drink but I would if it was with a miner
yeah Americans are still bizarre
where I lived was like that, as an American…
>>117192 No but kinda cool to see cyberpunk from a foreigner's perspective
Pic looks like it's from the 90s judging from the fashion though. The subways are actually pretty decent
I can't comprehend why the fuck you would even consider moving to a shithole like Dubai. Who would look at an artificial desert caliphate built by slaves that is basically just a giant shopping mall and go "hey, that looks great, I wanna move there"?
Because I just love spending my time in a european shithole where crime and degeneracy are rampant and nobody will give you a job.
>>120137>implying you’re allowed to do things as a female human being in Dubai
And what jobs are there in Dubai? Oil sheikh, "influencer" (parasite), slave, and… yeah, that's pretty much it.
And re degeneracy, I can't imagine anything more degenerate than a literal shopping mall city with no culture and history beyond artificial consoomerism.
It’s like they took the worst parts from every society on earth, metaphorically shoved it through a rusty meatgrinder, fried it in sewage oil, ate it, shat it out, ate it again, and shat it upon the most inhospitable wasteland they could possibly find, and called it a day.

my country is complete garbage there is little to talk about. I am more interested about other places.
Hi international friends, I tried to google this but didn't get anything on the America centric internet. I might make a separate thread for it later but:
does anyone have any resources to help yourself/family when you live in America but most of your family is a warring country? Most people I talk to have never had this problem so they're not helpful.
(Take 1 guess where I was born)
>>115992>despite being french
truly an unforgivable crime
If you mean how to help your family, maybe asking them what they need is the best thing?
If you mean to help yourself, perhaps looking for less specific sources, such as general ones about being worried?
And maybe looking for places you can talk with people in the same situation/ same nationality as you might help too?
For the euro miners here, are some of you stocking on supplies? Since the war started in Ukraine, I'm really anxious about everything going to shit and Poutine using the nukes. So I've been watching survival and preppers videos. I live in a big city in a flat (which imo is the worst place in case of problems like that) and I've started stocking on food (dry stuff like pasta and flour and such)
I've also been looking to buy for a while but now I would really like to buy a small house somewhere and not a flat. I can do my work remote but since covid restrictions ended, my workplace is removing the possibility to work at home.
Anyway, I've just been stressing over all this and I was wondering if there are other miners like me? or maybe someone who was already a prepper way before all that?
I'm in West Europe so relatively far removed from the war but my mom started talking about stocking up on some things like dried beans and bottles of water. She's also going to take some cash out in case Russia starts cyber warfare and get some backup petrol for the car. I didn't think we were in a position where that would be needed but she said she doesn't want to take the risk.. Now I'm thinking I should too just to be sure. Idk. As far as where to live, I feel like if our countries are directly going to go at war with Russia it probably no longer matters because we'll get nuked. That said I feel unsafe as fuck too. It's that I can't leave without reason of direct thread because I'm in uni, but honestly I wish I could leave for Canada where I have distant family who migrated there decades ago. I hope I can go there should the need really arise.
>>125942>no longer matters because we'll get nuked
Yeah, I agree…
I really don't like this, ether way this shit ends I see one single "happy" ending sorta, and we're still gonna be fucked for a while.
I haven't taken out cash but I should really do that, I'm just so used to using my card everywhere.
Good luck to you and your studies anon, I can't even begin to imagine having to work through all this
Considering where I live, if he decides to nuke I'd be dead in a fraction of a second, no need or use prepping. Even if I were to run far away to some remote countryside, my home would still be erased and my family dead, I wouldn't want to go on living like that.
Everyone in any part of the world will be fucked if we have full-fledged nuclear war. Even the place that would be the most relatively safe (the African continent) would have huge problems with starvation and radiation. We can only hope that it does not happen, and if it does, that we'll die instantly and painlessly.
If you don't live in Russia, yeah, you certainly should start stockpiling. Russia exports huge amount of groceries, and without Russia food prices will rise greatly in the West. I can bet there'll be hunger even
Also, I doubt Putin will use nukes unless NATO does.
The only reason we dont have ww3 is because of nukes, without them we would be at ww6 at best. Also look at what usa does to countries that dont have them.
kek I'm from a West Euro export country that produces more food than China does. We can feed ourselves if it comes to that.
Wonder where you get your information , Russia exporting tons of vodka I'm sure but as for food… Except for specialty I saw only once in a specialty russian shop, I think we'll manage
Your prices will still go up. And besides food, Russia exports:
-Titan. 20+% of all titan export is Russian
-Neon. Used for chips. Russia and Ukraine are major exporters
and much more.
I’m from Poland!!
Any polish girlies here?:3
Australian nonette here! ★
są i jest ich przynajmniej 6
nawet miałyśmy swój tread ale został zraidowany przez karachan i moderatorka usunęła
Me too Nona! I hope you are enjoying your autumn. It’s starting to get colder again. ✩
I’m from Russia, neeting hard, barely surviving from freelance art, was managed to flee in east Europe country since I have a place to stay for free for some time
My idea was keep freelancing in wait for the worst, hoping for the best
terrible idea, possibly the worst idea I ever had in my life, but I am dumb and was in panic and nobody stopped me
But now nearly every payment method is banned for russian bank accounts and russian ids so fml
how did you get into making money off art?
nta but it's hilarious that was your first question
Nothing new here: furry and anime-ish commissions - da, furaffinity, twitter, vk (for russians)
I have been deleting accounts and making new ones, so I am not popular - like at all
But from time to time I had commissions
Long ago I had normie art and design work, but that was too painful
Recently I had an offer from a local comic publisher, but they turned out to be a bunch of scammy moids who didn’t want to pay me
Now I only have hope for mobile game companies and casual art (in which I suck)
I have a number of artists I know irl, who work in this field, so I asked one if they have vacancies. So now I am trying to draw something normie to be hired
I feel you, I was planning on having an art career even if it's a small one, and now I don't even know if I'll be able to do that. I will keep drawing though.
Australian here, im about to get drunk and watch horror films by myself, its been a pleasant autumn and university is on monday. I drive 2 hours from the outer suburbs into the CBD on my motorcycle and want to be a journalist in the future. But i also want to be left the fuck alone
I'm just from Texas, In the US. It doesn't feel very exotic. Countdown til someone calls me out for being a tradthot. (Actually I'm not)
Like Mrs.Midwest? Why do people think that of you?
It's a fossa. It looks cat-like but is more related to mongooses.
i was watching Texas Chainsaw Massacre followed by Pieces 1982. Just needed some trashy horror films to round off the night
it's beautiful but also fits into the uncanny valley of looking like certain already extinct animals + for some reason I've never seen it before
I am! very much so, and i hope you are as well. although the weather in Melbourne is honestly abysmal right now. I hope it cools down and starts actually feeling like autumn soon.. it's so hot and humid right now, aughhh.
Russia is an economic dwarf, there'll be some adjustment pains until supply logistics have adapted but the west won't starve. Putinbots are everywhere these days I swear
True, the west won't starve, but India and lots of smaller countries in Africa and the like will
I'm Australian, but grew up in Northeast LA.
LA is undoubtedly shitty. Despite being in a city everywhere you want to get to is far away, traffic is horrible, public transit is almost nonexistent, and although I love long walks it sucks walking through hills, shitty sidewalks, and the sides of busy roads to get where you need to go. And seeing all the homeless people everywhere breaks my heart, although I've only had a few bad encounters with one and most of them are very respectful, since they depend on kindness and the rate of violence and abuse against the homeless is so high. Enjoyed the nightlife but turned 18 only a few months before COVID, beaches suck because the water's cold even in summer.
However I loved the latino culture and cuisine growing up in a heavily latino area, and despite being relatively urban there are loads of areas that are undeveloped wilderness or nature preserves. I grew up trekking around the hills of my neighbourhood, not even trails, which kickstarted my love of the outdoors.
Sydney's quite a bit nicer. Beautiful nature everywhere in the city, even the more "urban" areas are full of animals like ibises, parrots, flying foxes, big lizards and all sorts of fantastic animals. In general much more walkable and easy to get around in, especially in the inner city, inner suburbs, and inner west where I live and frequent, food is great. But the public transit, while much better than LA, could be a lot better, and is currently almost nonfunctional due to a transit strike. It's 3/4ths the size of The Netherlands and the newer suburbs are a blight of soulless architecture, cookie-cutter houses, and car-focused design. Wouldn't say it lacks nightlife but the combination of the lockout laws a few years ago and COVID recently has decimated it, and a lot of the interesting independent places have been bought up by big companies enforcing globohomo "alt" culture. Rent is among the highest anywhere in the world, thank God though I have my own studio in a nice area for cheap due to lucking out with disability assistance.
I am in dubai as well did you guys come to work the expo?
Are these putinbots in the room with us right now?
Are there fellow Bernadettes?
I'm honestly surprised at the amount of norwegians here considering how few we are
Sending love to all fellow scandis!

French elections coming up, nobody is interesting and we have two right wings getting good percentages.
Nobody seem to like the current president but he still has the highest chances of staying, next we have LePen OG right wing trying to win presidency and if the second right wing candidate Zemmour wasn't campaining, she might have had her chance this year. And to finish we have Mélanchon, hard left (similar to bernie sanders from what I understand).
Fuck if I know for who I'll vote in the second round but the odds ain't good. At least Macron doesn't look too weak and know how to talk internationaly. But OG Right wing, Right wing the reboot and oldie bernie aren't gonna cut it
Another frenchie !!
I dont vote personally. People have been voting for years and it never stopped things from getting worse. Not voting is the best option imo.
Also I hate every candidate. I only like Lassalle because of his nose and accent. I dont care for other things since I dont vote.
As for Macron, he's a cheater. Not surprising from a Rothschild bitch
france needs a right-wing leader
Not voting just mean people's vote who believe way too strongly about shit (i.e far right/left) will have more power. And I don't want any extreme to pass>>128832
Nah, I don't agree. Right wings just wanna leave europe and put the franc back which is the worst idea so far imo. Also they don't give two shits about ecology and shit on nuclear power (which of course is not awesome but it's the lesser of the two evils so far)
Hi french miners! I'm also not voting this round and will probably not vote for the secound round either. I'm disgusted with politics in our country, the political debates have been ridiculous (Hanouna hosting presidential debates…) and centered around the same exact topics without discussing in depth important issues. We just had a big pandemic that showed how fucked our health system is and it's not one of the main issue candidates want to tackle?
I fucking hate Macrard and his current government, honestly I'm scared of what's going to happen in the next few years if he's elected for his last mandate and can freely apply his neo-liberal plan. Blanquer is destroying public schooling and it's gonna get worse. I'll probably have to work until 70 yo because fucking 68ard boomers who enjoyed all social benefits want to strip them away now. Don't get me started on Darmanin, Schiappa, Dupont-Moretti… The government has medias on a chokehold and McKinsey's case not blowing up is crazy. It's a big circus but I can't even laugh at it because it'll have real implications for us non-top 1% peasants. A lot of people are tired and ready to snap, a new gilets jaunes movement will probably start although I can only imagine how violent the gov's response will be.
On a side note, what do you think about the Jean Michel Trogneux thing? For those wondering, our first lady (picrel right side), on top of being a pedo, was accused by conspiracy theorists of being a troon, mostly because her supposed brother (left side) has never been seen and looks a lot like her. She also has a weird look (clearly had plastic surgery, wears wigs and a ton of makeup, masculine build…). It's a bit far fetched but Macron has always pinged me as gay and their relationship is already disturbing and weird, who knows?
Whatcha laughing at? The state of your country?
terminally moidpoisoned brain
Voting or not voting won't change the balance of power, due to the way the two-round system works. My only way of showing my rejection of this undemocratic ballot is not voting at all.
Not voting is a little bit better for me because at least I do not actively participate as in approve the system. I simply am against democracy. Not necessarily the idea of it, I dont care, Im against it because it doesnt work.
Not voting is expressing yourself too.
Yeah I dont think Brigitte is an actual troon, she's just very ugly. Macron also wears some kind of wig btw. She kinda looks like a chimpanzee btw.
Everyone is a big joke in this. Im tired.
But Im going to call her a troon irl anyway just out of opposition.
>>128982>Jean Michel Trogneux>Macron fucking an eventual trans
Don't care. As long as the people involved enthusiastically consent, he could fuck a table for all I care.>>129088
yeah, I can't remember which person said that but I remember reading somewhere that democracy is the least worst idea for government.
Looking forward to the end of that election, cheers to all of you here, et aux françaises qui trainent, forces à vous
As for pedophilia I hate that she is living in luxury when shes obviously insane to be interested into a young boy.
But now they are both adults and he stayed with her all this time and had children wirh her so I really dont care. Also Macron is a sociopath or something like that, just insane and horrible, he doesn't deserve anything better now.
I just want them OUT, even better, DEAD. Idc if they fuck each other. Id be happy to know he's a homosexual because that would be one more reason to hate him for me.
And tbh I wouldnt say she is a pure pedophile because she stayed with him as well.
They have a really weird story actually. It seems like she's not really interested in children or teens. Maybe it was circonstancial since she didnt leave to groom other boys.
Still crazy and insane tho. I hope Im right because if she really is a pedophile maybe she did stuff to other teens.
So yeah end of story I dont feel bad for them because they have it TOO GOOD.
czesc nona ! just curious, do you happen to have any polish media recommendations? i'm trying to learn polish but still quite bad at it right now desu, nie mowie po polsku jestem struggling teraz

HIII IM FROM CHILE PLEASE LETS TALK, MY DISCORD IS
u are the only chilean here ily sm
Baguette checking in to take a breather after the election. 5 more year of Macron it seems, nobody is supprised there. Though to be honest, I thought it was gonna be much tighter with le Pen. Like 52/48, although 41% le Pen is tight enough of a gzp as it is imo
I'm surprised at the spread too, mass media propaganda never ceases to amaze with it's efficiency.
I'm also surprised that a large amount of Mélenchon's voters ended up for Macron. Would'nt it be better for them to have Le Pen elected with a 0% chance to have a majority in the assembly, thus forcing a cohabitation and reducing her to little more than a figurehead, rather than having another 5 years of what is basically freewheeling neoliberal Satan ?
I'm not a huge fan either but that's going a bit too far.
But about your point I don't think it would make a lot of sense for people to switch from left to far right. I mean, as figurehead goes, that's what Macron gonna end up being with the assembly, I believe melanchon and the rest are gonna try and get elected there.
Dunno if they'll make it though
That's their plan but it's never going to work, they'll get 100 deputies at best. Really makes me question their sense of strategy, going from Mélenchon to Le pen makes as little sense as going from Mélenchon to Macron.
I wasnt sure Macron would pass.
Im not surprised but im disappointed. I want him to die.
i can’t sent you a request ;_; add me please rumians#2934
I have no idea which part of Europe you're in but if you're that worried about the war don't buy a house?
I think I'm the only Argentinian miner out there but if there's any others feel free to add me, and anyone else interested,
