2023.03.29 12:35 Sungoldgroup123 Find Professional Sharpening Supplies and Accessories

Professional sharpening supplies and accessories are essential tools for maintaining the sharpness of knives, scissors, and other cutting tools. A well-maintained edge not only makes cutting easier and more efficient but also helps to prevent accidents and injuries. In this guide, we will discuss the different types of sharpening supplies and accessories available and how to choose the right ones for your needs.
Types of Sharpening Supplies:
Sharpening Stones: Sharpening stones are perhaps the most traditional and widely used sharpening tool. They come in various materials, including natural stones like oil stones, water stones, and Arkansas stones, and synthetic stones like ceramic and diamond stones. These stones come in different grits, which determine the coarseness or fineness of the sharpening surface. The coarser the grit, the more metal will be removed, and the sharper the edge will be.
Sharpening Steels: Sharpening steels are long, cylindrical rods made of either ceramic or steel. They are used to hone and maintain the edge of a knife or other cutting tool, rather than to sharpen it. Sharpening steels can be used to straighten the edge of a blade and remove any small burrs or nicks.
Electric Sharpeners: Electric sharpeners are a quick and convenient way to sharpen knives and other cutting tools. They work by using abrasive belts or grinding wheels to sharpen the blade. Some electric sharpeners also have guides that help to maintain the correct angle for sharpening.
Honing Guides: Honing guides are used to help maintain a consistent angle when sharpening a knife or other cutting tool. They come in different sizes and styles and are often adjustable to accommodate different blade thicknesses and angles.
Leather Strops: Leather strops are used to hone and polish the edge of a blade after sharpening. They are typically used with a polishing compound, which helps to remove any remaining burrs or nicks and give the blade a razor-sharp edge.
Choosing the Right Sharpening Supplies:
When choosing sharpening supplies and accessories, it is important to consider the type of cutting tools you will be sharpening, as well as your experience level and personal preferences. Here are some factors to consider:
Material: The material of the sharpening stone or other tool will affect its durability, effectiveness, and maintenance requirements. Natural stones like oil stones and Arkansas stones require regular flattening and maintenance, while synthetic stones like ceramic and diamond stones are more durable and require less maintenance.
Angle: The angle at which you sharpen the blade is critical to achieving a sharp edge. Some tools, like honing guides, can help you maintain a consistent angle, while others require more practice and skill.
Size: The size of the sharpening tool is important to consider, particularly if you are sharpening larger knives or other cutting tools. A larger sharpening stone or honing guide may be necessary to accommodate the size of the blade.
Budget: Professional Sharpening supplies and accessories can range from very affordable to quite expensive, depending on the material, size, and quality of the tool. Consider your budget and how often you will be using the tool when making your purchase.
Professional sharpening supplies and accessories are essential tools for maintaining the sharpness and safety of your cutting tools. With the right tools and techniques, you can achieve a razor-sharp edge that will make cutting easier and more efficient. Consider the factors we discussed when choosing your sharpening

2023.03.29 12:30 whatafoolishsquid Newsom's Tax Gouging Law Will Lead to Higher Gas Prices for Californians

Do Californians actually believe Newsom's bullshit?
California already regulated oil companies more than any other state. And they also have the most expensive gas. The EU already has these laws in place—and then some—and their gas is still twice as much as California's.
It is obvious that these types of regulations increase gas prices, not lower them. It is so blatantly dishonest that he is claiming otherwise.
Of course, it doesn't take more than eight seconds of logical reasoning to realize this either. If you were in the oil or gas business, would you want to invest, expand or even bother doing business in California with a government passing these types of laws? I wouldn't.
Enjoy your EU-level gas prices, California.

Wondering if anything really does work to slow down UV damage and dry rot on tires. Some people say oil, but it can damage the tires, others say a water based oil, some type of wax or grease on the sidewalls. People also mention that 303 UV spray as well.

2023.03.29 12:07 milchshakee A new connection manager and remote file explorer created with Java(FX) - X-Pipe Status Update

What is this about?

In short, X-Pipe is a brand new type of connection manager and remote file explorer that works by exclusively interacting with CLI tools on local and remote shell connections. This approach makes it much more flexible as it doesn't have to deal with file system APIs and remote file handling protocols at all. Many things have changed since the first announcement, so I wanted to give a quick overview from the perspective of a Java developer.

A New Look

The JavaFX styling was completely switched to AtlantaFX in order to achieve the best possible look. This library is honestly the best that you can get if you want your application to have a good and uniform look + dark mode support that doesn't look like we are in the year 2010:

Remote File Browser

One suggestion I received was to implement a remote file explorer on top of the connection implementation, i.e. one that works on arbitrary remote systems. So I did that! Compared to other existing remote file managers, this one purely works on top of shell-based CLI tools and connections, so it also works for docker containers, WSL instances, and more:

Improved Settings

Another focus was improving the look and feel of the settings menu, which has been created with PreferencesFX. Using a custom skin and layout, which takes inspiration from vscode's settings menu, we can achieve pretty similar looking results:

In-App Documentation

Nowadays, most application documentation is moved onto a website, which forces users to switch to a web browser every time they want to read some basic documentation. Furthermore, docs on the web can become quite convoluted, resulting in additional times spent just looking for the right section. But as it turns out, using the JavaFX WebView, Flexmark, AtlantaFX Popovers, and for example GitHub Markdown CSS, you can achieve a fancy markdown display within your application at exactly the place you want:


If X-Pipe sounds interesting to you, you can give it a try! There are more exciting features to come in the near future.

2023.03.29 11:58 ta_1204 [PC] [2000-2010s] Pop-sicle's official brand Pool Party attraction with Popsicles as customers, flash game

Platform: PC
Genre: Management
Estimated year of release: 2000s (2000-2010, for sure)
Graphics: Cartoony, bright & colorful visuals; kid-friendly. It's always sunny, think of typical "summer pool" vibes. The view is from a bird's eye-view from above of a big pool in the center with various activities for customers all around the place (they could: plate up for BBQ and eat (for SURE), play on a tennis court(?), go lounge on a beach chair(?), dance on a dancefloor(?), etc.). Customers enter (and exit(?)) on the top-left corner and there's a fence(?) or hedge(?) on the top-right corner.
Notable characters: ??? (no specific names can be recalled, maybe they do have names as each customer type is unique, but the characters are ALL Popsicles)
Gameplay: You work to manage a big pool and various activities as attractions for incoming anthropomorphic Popsicle customers that partake the activities to make money and purchase more activities / upgrade(?) the activities. Each level of gameplay gets incrementally difficult with new customers (that probably has own unique likes & dislikes(?)). If the customer is upset, they will visibly show their dissatisfaction (red-faced, smoke-fuming popsicles) and leave(?). The game will continue on until you lose. Not sure if it's indefinite as I never got to late game to know.
Other details: It's DEFINITELY from the Pop-sicle brand (yes, that Pop-sicle brand that sells popsicle treats with the blue-red, pill-shaped icon) as it was played on their official website with many other Pop-sicle themed flash games.

2023.03.29 10:51 loanpandit2023 Bill discounting

Bill discounting
Bill discounting is a commercial activity in which a firm sells its outstanding bills to a funder who agrees to reimburse the company later. With bill discounting, the company discounts outstanding bills to obtain short-term financial help and maintain working capital. Invoice discounting is another name for this technique. The Negotiable Instruments Act of 2010 governs this process. With the TReDS platform, there are two techniques for discounting a bill: factoring and reverse factoring. Both strategies are intended to accelerate and boost cash flow without affecting the balance sheet.

Bill Discounting is a type of short-term financing for merchants in which they sell unpaid bills due on a date in the future to financial firms in exchange for a commission. The Bank acquires the bills (Promissory Note) well before the deadline and credits the amount to the customer's account after a discount fee. The Bank will collect the bill money immediately from the debtor on the bill's due date. This allows traders to manage their free cash flow and business cycles while keeping their balance sheets intact. Lenders often provide tenors of as long as 180 days even while providing bill discounting services.
As a result, the seller receives a reduced payment for their bill. This allows them to continue operating their businesses while purchasers benefit from a more extended credit period. On the given deadline, the seller pays the financial institution, completing the cycle for that specific invoice. Because the seller receives money at a 'discount,' this process is called Bill Discounting.


Assessing the vendor and the buyer: Before granting bill discounting, the banks or NBFC investigates the seller's and buyer's creditworthiness. This is performed to ensure that the purchaser does not fail to make the bank payment. The most noticeable element of bill discounting is the availability of quick cash to the customer.
After discounting the bill, the bank or NBFC acquires the invoice and pays it instantly. This makes the seller's life easier. They are paid immediately and do not have to wait for the customer to pay.
The difference between both the face value of an invoice as well as the amount accepted and released by the bank is referred to as the discount.
Maturity: The maturity period of a bill is the date on which the invoice must be paid. The typical maturity time is 30 days, 60 days, 90 days, or 120 days.


The eligibility requirements for bill discounting vary per lender and are typically determined by the financial institution's leadership providing the service. Nonetheless, the following are the most typical bill discounting criteria:
  • The business must have been in operation for a fair amount of time. Most financial organisations need a minimum of three years of experience.
  • The seller should have dealt with at least two investment-grade firms.
  • A credit score of 650 or higher is required.
  • The company must generate a minimum annual revenue of one crore.


As a cash transaction, bill discounting benefits all parties involved: the vendor, the purchaser, and the financial institution. The buyer and seller can steady their cash flow, whereas the financial institution may profit from the funds lying with them.

The following are the unique advantages of bill discounting:

Enhances cash flow position:

To survive and flourish, all businesses, large and small, rely on cash flow. Bill discounting facilitates speedy cash flow into the firm, allowing it to survive and thrive. The quick money could be utilised to pay staff, buy supplies for a subsequent order, or to purchase a new asset.

Gives immediate access to cash:

A bill discounting service is a quick and easy solution for a seller to get payment on their invoices. It enables companies to better control their working capital and keeps the working capital cycle short. Most banking institutions, including MYND, provide funds between 24 and 72 hours.

There is no collateral involved:

Bill discounting is a pretty easy technique. It does not need much documentation. Second, the seller is not needed to offer collateral security to receive the payments. The invoice is sufficient collateral to obtain the funds.

There is no debt:

Obtaining cash through a bill discounting service does not place the buyer in debt. In this case, the purchasers are paid against the bills, which are already paid as a result of them. It only facilitates their acquisition of funds. As a result, it creates no debt burden for them. Compared to typical lending approaches, a bill discounting service is risk-free.

There is no effect on the balance sheet:

The bill discounting facility generates no tax burden. It's more of a spontaneous, impromptu procedure. As a result, it does not affect the company's financial sheet.


Bill Discounting is, however, one alternative, which allows a company to get paid quickly for their job and fulfil their running expenditures without relying on an outside agency. Bill Discounting, or Invoice Discounting, is just a business transaction in which a seller offers products or services to a buyer.
The buyer must pay within the agreed-upon credit period. If the buyer requires funds sooner, he might contact a bank or an NBFC and sell the invoice to them. The banking institution verifies the buyer's invoice and then pays the vendor on their behalf. They do, however, make some reductions, known as 'discounts,' as their commission.


1. What exactly is bill discounting?

Business discounting is just a type of commerce that allows sellers to receive prompt payment for their job. It enables them to pay their operating expenditures without relying on external funding sources.

2. In the event of bill discounting, what would be the repayment period?

The payback time is the same as the credit period granted to the seller by the buyer.

3. Is bill discounting considered a sort of company loan?

Indeed, it is a business loan provided by financial organisations such as banks and NBFCs. The amount of this form of company loan is sanctioned based on bills or invoices supplied by the lender.

4. Is GST, TDS, and VAT levied on bill discounting?

No, GST, TDS, and VAT do not apply to bill discounting.

Chapter 1 Book 1 Chapter 1—
December 15, 2004
The woods surrounded me, the night enveloping me like a black cloak.
My breath came in short gasps, the cold air clogging up my air way. I stumbled, falling on my hands and knees.
I could feel blood seeping down my legs, sharp branches scratching my hands but I paid little attention to the pain.
And still I continued to run...
and run...
and run!
I had to get as far away from him as possible, if he caught me...I shook my head not wanting to think about it.
Tears streamed down my face as I heard the familiar howl, he was getting near.
But I had nowhere to go.
The realization yet again hit me, causing me to falter.
Where would I go?
I had no money.
I had no relatives.
I was just a little girl and I was alone.... so alone.
As I stood there, the cold seeped through my jeans and jacket, sending a bone shattering chill through my body,
I heard the approaching footsteps.
I froze before I came to my senses and ran.
I stumbled and stumbled, unable to see the tree roots and low branches.
Finally after what felt like hours, I couldn't continue on.
I was cold, and my limbs were going numb due to the December winter.
I fell to the ground, too tired to push away the stick poking at my ribs.
I closed my eyes, letting sleep take me.
I faintly heard a twig snap near my head then everything went black.
10 Years Later...
August 25, 2014
I woke up to the sound of the alarm clock.
My eyes snapped open and I instantly shut it off knowing he had a hangover and the noise would only infuriate him.
I sat up in my pull out couch bed and stretched my sore muscles.
The first day of Senior year at Middleton High.
I couldn't wait! No sarcasm there.
I headed into the bathroom, taking a quick shower and brushing my teeth.
Walking into my small room I shoved on the first thing I saw a pair of jeans, a plain black v neck and a black leather jacket with a hoodie. It was all I could pretty much wear, or a long sleeve shirt.
Frankly, the hoodie hid things better.
I didn't bother with make—up, I wasn't the type of girl who tried to stand out much.
I put on my black boots, grabbed my backpack then quietly made my way down the small hallway.
I winced as the board creaked beneath my weight.
I had forgotten about that.
Hopefully he had not heard.
I had almost made it to the front door when his voice boomed out.
The door handle in my hand, I stared at it longingly before making my way to the door.
I waited, knowing he didn't like me to talk without him saying so.
"Where are you going?"He demanded, his speech slurred from the hangover the night before. "To school" I said softly.
I peeked in his room when I heard a shuffle.
He still wore his mechanic uniform, the blue of it stained with various oil stains. His black hair in tangles, and two day whiskers covering his face.
"Come here!" He rasped.
Cautiously I made my way inside, side stepping the brown bottles of what I supposed was moonshine. It was all he ever drank.
I stood before him, staring at the far wall and wishing I were anywhere but here.
Suddenly he grabbed my hand and jerked me closer to him.
He gave me a hard kiss on the cheek then let me go.
"You can leave now" He said yawning and putting the covers over his head.
I wiped my cheek furiously before making my way outside .
I woke up to the best smell ever.
What better way to start my senior year?
After taking a quick shower and putting on a black aeropostale shirt, jeans and back Nike hightops I made my way down stairs.
When I entered the kitchen my father had his arms around my mother and they were lip locked.
"Aww jeez! Gross!"
I rolled my eyes.
My mother flushed but my father just grinned.
"Morning darling you ready for school?" my mother set a plate before me piled with eggs, Bacon, sausages and pancakes.
"Oh yeah who doesn't like school?"
I said sarcastically before shoving as much food as I could in my mouth.
I saw my father silently chuckle before giving me a pat on the shoulder.
"I'm off to work, Chris have a good first day. I'll see you later honey."
I watched as he gave mom a kiss then walked out.
I ate quickly, then gave mom a kiss before leaving.
Getting into my 17th birthday present, a silver Bentley I headed to Middleton High.

How to Use The Regular Magnetic Nail Polish?

For the regular nail polish (not gel!):
Prepare your nails with the base coat, and wait for it dry. Any base coat will do.
Apply the first color coat and wait for it dry, then the second coat, and wait again (this coat is not magnetic).
Apply the magnetic nail polish and immediately hold the magnet stick close to the nail for at least 30 seconds. The closer the distance, the more obvious the effect (but keep the stick away from the polish). The effect is decided on the line of the magnet stick and the direction you put it.
Apply a top coat, and use the magnet stick again, close to the nail for at least 30 seconds.

Roniki's cat eye gel manicure

As a manufacturer of cat eye gel manicure products, Roniki is focused on providing high-quality, long-lasting nail polish that creates a unique and eye-catching effect. The cat eye gel manicure is a special type of nail polish that contains tiny magnetic particles, which can be manipulated with a special magnetic tool to create a distinct, swirling pattern that resembles a cat's eye.
To create the cat eye effect, the gel polish is applied to the nails like traditional nail polish and cured under an LED or UV lamp. While the polish is still wet, a small magnetic tool is held over the nail, which attracts the magnetic particles in the polish and creates the cat eye pattern. The pattern can be customized by adjusting the position of the magnet and the angle at which it's held over the nail.
Roniki's cat eye gel manicure products are formulated with high-quality ingredients that are free of harmful chemicals like formaldehyde, toluene, and DBP. The polish is designed to be long-lasting and resistant to chipping and fading, ensuring that customers can enjoy their cat eye manicure for weeks without needing to touch it up.
Roniki's cat eye gel manicure products are designed with both quality and creativity in mind, providing a unique and eye-catching nail polish option for customers who want to stand out from the crowd.
Check out RONIKI new magetic cat eye gel with pixel and peacock effects. The magnetic particles are upgraded into better functioning.

2023.03.29 10:23 askeramota Are the 2010 is unreliable as they sound?

So I’m looking to get into a gen2 or gen3.
I’ve found some good deals on high mileage 2010, but the whole lotta of engine issues really does scare me off.
In the group’s experience, are they as unreliable as they sound?
If you find one with say 200k miles and it’s not eating oil between changes, is that an indicator that the engine is a unicorn?
Anything else I should consider?

2023.03.29 10:20 SarveshHospitals Comprehensive Guide to Dermatology: Skincare

Dermatology is the study of the skin, its structure, functions, and diseases. The skin is the largest organ of the body, and it protects the body from external damage, regulates body temperature, and helps in the synthesis of vitamin D. Keeping the skin healthy is essential for overall health, and dermatology plays a vital role in achieving this.


Good skincare practices can help maintain healthy skin and prevent many skin problems. Here are some tips for healthy skin:
  1. Cleansing: Washing your face twice a day with a gentle cleanser can help remove dirt, oil, and dead skin cells from the skin's surface. It's important to avoid harsh soaps and hot water that can strip the skin of its natural oils.
  2. Moisturizing: Using a good moisturizer can help keep the skin hydrated and prevent dryness and flakiness. Look for a moisturizer that suits your skin type.
  3. Sun Protection: Exposure to the sun's harmful UV rays can cause skin damage, premature aging, and skin cancer. Using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher can help protect the skin from sun damage.
  4. Diet and hydration: A healthy diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants can help keep the skin healthy. Drinking plenty of water can help keep the skin hydrated and flush out toxins from the body.

2023.03.29 10:00 LongjumpingSpite3342 The A-10 isn't bad (in terms of desert storm)

It has astounded me how people have failed to take into doctrinal considerations when speaking about aircraft weapons systems. This is especially a problem for the A-10 as most of the reason for its "poor" service record was not so much due to the airframe but the tactical and strategic employment of the A-10.
NOTE: I may be the idiot here because i have not checked for other posts defending the A-10. Please do NOT notify me if I'm just repeating stuff (just let me be dumb).
https://info.publicintelligence.net/MTTP-JFIRE.pdf (JTAC stuff)
https://media.defense.gov/2010/Sep/27/2001329817/-1/-1/0/AFD-100927-066.pdf(main source)
https://gulflink.health.mil/du_ii/du_ii_tabh.htm (friendly fire incidents)
A MK82 500lb bomb, the smallest in common US inventory at the time of desert storm has a minimum 100% kill radius of 32 METERS. This only counting the 100% lethality radius, the actual danger radius can extend out to 100 meters. Factoring bombing accuracy issues (for the MK84 1000lb) could result in a deviation of up to 200ft (49 meters). These factors were known to Command from pre war exercises and testing. Bombs would most often be dropped from high altitude either from dives, CCRP using the ground radar. Note this ground radar (on the f-16) could Not distinguish the Vehicle type or had any sort of IFF.
Visual spotting was completely the norm back in the 1990s. Pilots were expect to train with visual spotting and were more than expected to regularly use visual spotting as a final means of target recognition and PID if at all possible. It has been a thing for the past century. However due to the ground fire threat of desert storm only the A-10 is mentioned as having the specific mission type of "Look and See" Given the rest of the more vulnerable aircraft that were less suited for low altitude flight remained at high altitude. This wasn't just of out ground fire concerns either, With the F-16s and F-15s having significantly lower efficiency at lower altitude compared to the A-10 which did not suffer as much at low altitude. Weather you think "Look and see" missions were a tactical error or not has little do with the aircraft flying the sortie. The fact is if an F-15 or F-16 flew similar missions regularly would have likely had similar if not worse performance or not than the A-10.
LGBs in desert storm were relatively rare being only 6.7 percent of weapons employed in desert storm. Only the F-111 and F-117 were configured to carry LGBs at the start of the war. A trivial amount of F-15Es were equipped with pods for LGBs (only 6 pods were available for F-15Es). The F-16s in desert storm were only equipped with the AAQ-13 Nav pod and not the AAQ-14 targeting pod.
A small side note A-10s ended up firing the most AGM-65 mavericks out of any aircraft in desert storm. firing 4,801 AGM-65s of all variety. This accounts to about 90% of all maverick's fired in DS and overall with pretty decent effectiveness. High explosive variants were not widely in service at the time of DS with only 35 of the AGM-65Es being supplied to the USMC. I'm not sure why flying fast=better platform for CAS but in this case i can guess that flying at lower altitudes at slower speeds helped A-10s find and target better than faster F-16s.
So if you aren't familiar with USAF doctrine, Ground troops don't willy nilly call in CAS missions. This is a job for JTACs or Joint Air tactical air controllers. These men are more than familiar with an aircrafts weapons systems and capabilities. They require specific parameters in order to employ and direct aircraft onto targets. One of these key parameters is the danger close range. JTACS typpicaly dont call in stikes that may violate mission parameters.
The 500lb bomb has a danger close radius of 230 meters, A gbu-12 has a danger close radius of 170 meters, And the "inaccurate" "friendly killer" "dangerous" GAU-8 has a danger close of 65 meters. Hell even the apache's and cobras 20mm and 30mm had limits of 75 meters (300M increasing to 85 at 1000M) and 70 meters (at 500m increasing to 75m at 1000m). The M-151 unguided rocket (launched from helicopter) having a danger close zone of 140m (300m) up to 405M (3 kilometers). the M-229 (launched from helicopter) having an accuracy of 145M-410M (300M-3 kilometers respectively). For aircraft launched rockets this was 365m at med alt and 225m at low alt (individual rocket types not given). Funny enough the "less accurate" M61 Vulcan only has a danger close radius of 60m. However it is to be noted that the M61 is less effective than all above listed weapons and is significantly less capable against armor than the GAU-8. The GAU-8 30mm DU having reportedly 14 times more kinetic energy than an 20mm M61 Vulcan round and more explosive mass (for HE rounds).
So where does this leave us? What do i mean? Wham am i trying to say? The A-10 In desert storm was one of the most capable CAS aircraft in theater. It is unfair to compare the A-10 to F-111, F-16, and F-15 because The A-10 was often tasked with missions these other aircraft simply did not do. These missions being inherently more hazardous and more prone to human error than other more "planned" missions assigned to strike aircraft. The A-10 is a fundamentally different aircraft than the F-16 and F-15 and should not be judged by the same standard.
The Strike fighters (F-15,F-16, and F-111) could not do The A-10's job of CAS better than it can, on the contrary the A-10 can perform strike missions just as well as the strike fighters can. The A-10s use in close in CAS missions throughout its service life brought it closer to friendly troops than the strike fighters were allowed to go. The nature of its mission set being inherently more prone to blue on blue and blue on green incidents than other mission types. Most of its friendly fire incidents in desert storm weren't even due to the inaccuracy of its weapons system but more due to misinformation and lack of coordination with command. The most notable Blue on blue incidents occurred in "Kill boxes" where the A10s were more or less allowed to shoot on sight. Again tactical error or not, The A-10 is not responsible for the inherent weaknesses of the mission assignment/type.
But why not the helicopter? Apparently the helicopter is supposed to be better than the A-10. Helicopters for a number of reasons are significantly more vulnerable than the A-10. Helicopters are slow enough to be vulnerable to SACLOS ATGMs and AAMs given the right circumstances. Helicopters generally fly pretty low to the ground exposing them to ground fire and non radar AAA fire for the duration of the mission. These were well known issues with the employment of helicopters and led to the underusage of helicopters (the AH-64 specifically). AH-64s were only assigned 88 missions during desert storm and only flew 652 flights. The A-10 on the other hand is only really vulnerable to automatically guided MANPADs (IR) leading to the A-10 taking over a fair portion of AH-64 duties. The A-10 was more than capable of flying at medium altitude and was considerably faster and more responsive than attack helicopters while retaining loiter time. The A-10 ended up flying over 8000 sorties so comparing the two kind of doesn't make sense.
The issue of cost for the A-10 is also kind of irrelevant in the case of the gulf war. Being cheaper is a nice bonus to have but as the A-10 was more or less the only fixed wing aircraft designed for close in CAS missions it made sense to optimize the A-10 for its role in the future.
I will probably making a similar post responding to Lazerpig's video on the A-10 and for specifically detailing the A-10s in Afghanistan.

2023.03.29 09:31 Erwinblackthorn Furie (2019) vs Furies (2022): When Woke Film Theory Hits Vietnam

I am a firm believer that action films require a male lead in order to be effective in the action market. Nearly every one of these films is about revenge, taking on a spirit of vengeance, or taking on the role of justice. But the strange part of this is that both vengeance and justice are feminine deities in mythology, and at multiple levels. The male action hero is less about taking revenge or enacting justice and is more about understanding their role in taking revenge, which can result in not wanting revenge at all or realizing there is something more grand to the journey they enter. This is why mystery and whodunit stories appeal to women, because women enjoy aspects of revenge and justice, while being less interested in the more masculine aspects like enlightenment and the hero’s journey.
That statement alone is enough to set any wokescold’s blood a’boiling, because it’s a factual statement.
None of this means it’s impossible to make an action movie with a female lead, it just means it will be built differently with themes exclusive to the female role. I’ve talked about the movie Furie here and there when talking about female roles in stories because it’s a clear example of how to do it right when the female role is meant to be a tiger mother archetype. The story is simple: a mother has her child kidnapped by bad guys and she goes out to retrieve her child and save her from the dangerous world they live in. This kind of story is very primitive, with how it’s no different than if a tigress lost her cub and had to find it in the wilderness. The tiger mother finds her strength by being more feminine, closer to mother earth, and using her nurturing spirit to stay dedicated to her main goal: protect her cub.
Not only protect, but also allow her cub to flourish in the world by making sure her child studies hard, gets a good job, and gives the air of “not being good enough” because that is what the world tells us every day. We will never please the world and feel comfortable at any moment for any reason unless we willingly let our guard down, and that’s when the snake devours the cub. The tiger mother views the world as harsh, unforgiving, and a constant threat of corruption that will swallow their child whole. They are not paranoid, they are realistic. They are not carefree, they are careful. This mentality causes them to become very authoritarian, and so the tiger mother might as well be called the empress, because they are to be the empress of both their world and the world of their child’s.
A fury is one of the Furies from Greek mythology, who are the 3 goddesses of vengeance. Nemesis came before them as a goddess of revenge, but it is more like Nemesis handles anger between gods and the furies cast curses upon humans. In the movie Furie, there is a detective who is after the same villain, with the villain being this drug lady(as in female version of drug lord) and she is the dark sorceress of the streets. The Drug Lady represents the terrible chaotic side of the earth mother, with her minions being these evil demons who kill and rape anything in their path. The entire story of Furie was a mythological tale presented in modern day Vietnam in one of the most beautiful depictions of such a tale I’ve seen in a while.
This is not meant to be a hero’s journey other than the journey of the detective, who gains a gift from the tiger mother in the form of protection while he also saves her in the end, meaning there is a supportive synergy going on in their relationship. The authoritarian femme fatale assisting the masculine authority is a story about control between both family and society. An action movie like this is why I love action films when they have effort put into them, because there is deep subject matter being played out through simple interactions between individuals and between that we get epic fight scenes.
Let me tell you: these fight scenes are awesome.
It’s not just about a woman beating up a bunch of dudes. It’s about how she struggles to get through each fight but will still carry on because that’s what a mother does for her child. It’s no different than when a noir hero fights his way through hordes of goons in order to enact his revenge. All of these little fights represent thoughts in our head like “give up” and “go back”, which are meant to detract us from our main goal. Get hit too much or get surrounded and we are forced to play defense or hide behind something, which is no different than being like a turtle hiding in their shell. The turtle, the hermit, only works in isolation and it’s meant to be the moment of introspect.
All of that is a way of saying that the action hero should only play defense to plan a better attack, because the world around them will not give up on the onslaught. These are the moments in an action movie where someone is healing or planning a new attack, with the occasional doubt hitting them near the end. The movie Furie has these moments, specifically for the tiger mother to heal and make a plan to get her daughter back, which enhances the movie’s credibility. We need these high and low points of an action movie for rest, progression of story, getting to know the characters more, and also we don’t expect a budget to be constant expensive action all the time.
If anything, the furie in this movie is a representation of Alecto, goddess of unceasing anger, due to her dedication that goes beyond the death of those who wrong her. In the mythology, the furies are three sisters who live in the underworld, specifically Erebus(meaning darkness), which is why it’s appropriate to have this movie mostly at night and involve the criminal underworld. Whenever an action movie involves the criminal underworld as a setting, they are mirroring the underworld of mythology in a form of katabasis, a journey into the underworld. Think of something like Orpheus or Dante or Jesus making a trip into the underworld in order to achieve a goal. The underworld in this case is always related to something like a wilderness or a hedonistic primitive state of mind that’s full of everything unlawful because the primitive state is before society and order is established.
The male enters the underworld to become enlightened and the female lives there because it’s their domain.
Rape, murder, theft, drug use, kidnapping, everything that we are able to do as humans but only do once our shadow has taken over. The shadow, the darkness within us, is what is so present in the underworld that the entire world is enveloped in darkness, under this shadow. When taken symbolically, this movie works beautifully and it makes sense to have the evil villain kidnap the child of our tiger mother heroine and also try to harvest her organs. This villain, named Thanh Soi, appears to be something like a big bad wolf who goes around and devours children. Being a female antagonist, she represents the ruthless underworld and chaos that causes the world to be so treacherous and causes the tiger mother to be so dedicated.
I have nothing but praise for this first movie because it sticks so close to mythology and fits itself into an alchemical form of storytelling. It’s no surprise this movie was nominated for awards and it probably would have won a lot of them if people respected the beautiful choreography and neon noir aesthetics. I would even go far enough to say that it’s one of my favorite action movies of the decade, if not in the top 10 of all time. It provides a female action heroine in a way that works because she is entirely feminine in her approach to everything, down to her not really having a hero’s journey because that’s reserved for the male assistant she has, who is in the form of a detective.
Sadly, thanks to the colors pink and purple always being present in these neon noir movies, we have encountered a massive issue in how these kinds of movies will be made in the future.
For a quick reminder, noir is the film genre where a cynical hero enters an existentialist journey that changes them for the worst because they were touched by the darkest elements of the world. In noir, the femme fatale always aids in bringing this male hero to his downfall, because the femme fatale is a representation of Lilith and this existential crisis our hero enters represents the fallen state of Adam. These stories are aided by German expressionism and poetic realism, to both ground and extend the story into an almost surreal world that we can relate to. The inner mind of the hero gets reflected out onto the world to cause this expressionism, which allows aspects like elongated shadows and warped environments to symbolically fit into the story and make it look fascinating.
Neo-noir is a postmodernist form of this genre that takes some of the aspects of noir and tries to experiment with more current trends, keeping some of the aesthetics and aspects that resulted from decades of pulp stories being told and merged together in what I would like to call “mental slop” that is created in media by merging elements together after years of experimentation and deconstruction. No longer does it have to do with a cynical hero or an existential crisis, because now the barriers of the genre are removed and people simply recognize it as noir for some vague aspects that might relate to noir, such as dealing with a criminal underworld or the snappy way hardboiled dialogue would be written.
A good way to put it is that neo-noir holds noir “themes” and “sensibilities”.
This is further continued into neon noir, which is not a fully established genre quite yet, but is noticed recently with the increased popularity of retrowave and cyberpunk. The neon lights of the 80s are brought into this neo-noir story to create a contrast between two colors, similar to how noir was filmed in black and white. This is an aesthetic choice and is usually in the form of contrasting purple against a blue because these are complimentary colors. Lights are very present in this new genre, but the light is less of a source of clarity and more like a new form of obscurity. The expressionism in these movies are used for mood enhancing, due to the tranquility of blue and the excitement of red.
All of this is important to note because postmodernists will take everything that works about these factors and then try to avoid anything that makes sense about it. They go by whatever they feel and hope their experimentation doesn’t blow up in their face. Sometimes it works, like in the case of the movie Drive, and other times it doesn’t like in the sequel to Furie called Furies.
Everything was set up for this sequel. There was no way for it to be worse. It had more money, it had Hollywood investing in it, and the concept of the tiger mother can be used as much as any typical action hero setup could be used. Just have a villain who runs a crime syndicate, have a person who was wronged by this crime lord, they seek out revenge, and it ends with the villain being defeated.
Simple, right?
Well… this movie didn’t do that. I mean, it did, but it didn’t in the way that works. There’s a villain, a male drug lord who runs a casino and kidnaps women to sell their bodies for sex. There is a person who is wronged, who is a woman that lost her husband and child at the hands of this drug lord. This woman is seeking revenge and she defeats the villain at the end.
But she’s not the protagonist. She’s not even A protagonist. In fact, they made her the actual villain of the story. The villain… kills the villain. They probably thought they were doing a “Darth Vader killing off the Emperor” kind of thing, but they weren’t.
We are told in the beginning that this woman is to be like a mentor, the fairy godmother who protects our protagonist and guides her through this treacherous world. She’s meant to be a sort of adopted tiger mother, the way lesbians do it, and instead turns into the wicked stepmother by the end. But it seems I’m getting ahead of myself, so I’ll explain this story in a more coherent manner.
This sequel is a prequel. It happens before the first movie. We are introduced to a character named Bi(pronounced like BEE) who claims in a monologue that she was “destined for darkness”. Hey, makes sense. The Furies were born from Nyx in one of the mythologies, so being born from night to be destined for darkness is a sort of match made in heaven for this kind of character.
She becomes a homeless wreck after a drunk man tries to rape her and killed her mother. She killed him and is forever reminded of that moment every time she gets blood on her hands(a running theme we will see later). This is where a lady named Jacqueline finds her and brings her under her wing, hiding her with two other girls. Symbolically, we can determine these three girls are meant to be the furies: Alecto (“Unceasing in Anger”), Tisiphone (“Avenger of Murder”), and Megaera (“Jealous”).
Already, this entire thing fell apart and deviated from the mythology.
I say this because the other two girls are nothing like the furies of mythology and I can only assume Bi is meant to be Tisiphone because her mother was murdered. But she already got her revenge, so there’s not much for her to do in that regard. The girl named Hong is meant to be a cute Harley Quinn style psycho and the girl Thanh Soi is meant to be a butch biker. The two girls want their own forms of revenge against the drug lord that runs the streets they live in, mostly because both used to be slave girls and want to free their fellow women who have been enslaved. Jacqueline convinced them that she wants to free the slave girls as well, and all of this training that she puts them through is for this mission, but there’s a catch.
Jacqueline kept her relationship with this drug lord secret, because she was working with him and ended up having her husband and child killed by this drug lord. For years, she planned out revenge and set up several spies within his ranks, including the boyfriend of Hong. All of this is revealed in the end, so we go through the whole movie believing they are out for vigilante justice against crimes, specifically against women, when it was all because a bitter mother was betrayed after trusting a man too much. Already, this sounds like a mess, and it is. This prequel makes such a simple story incredibly convoluted and tries to use twists as a plaster for weak narrative and symbol subversion. But there’s a reason for this.
The woman who acted as the main heroine in the first movie also plays the role of Jacqueline. These are two different women in the movie’s setting, being played by the same woman. On top of that, the first movie was directed by a man and now this prequel is written and directed by… this same actress in question, Veronica Ngo. That’s right, she decided to play the villain after she wrote the script and directed the entire thing.
It was designed for this woman to crank herself silly.
And boy does it show in the movie. Quite literally in every scene. I say this because the first movie held shots for a while and had the simple story unfold slowly, with long moments to settle down and let the beautiful environment sink in. In the prequel, we are supposed to enjoy flashing colors as every scene is cut and edited like a movie trailer. I’m not kidding when I say that.
Every. Single. Scene.
Even the scene where Bi is being raped by a drunkard is treated like a movie trailer, with the camera changing all over the place and music playing as she monologues about how everything sucks. This camera is a massive pain to sit through, because it’s either constantly moving, getting splashed with CGI blood, zooming over people’s shoulders, or switching between 5 different conversations before a single thought could be finalized. It does that thing where someone is talking in a different scene and then a few seconds later the camera goes to where the person is talking, as if the transition was meant to be meaningful, but it would be for any little thing.
This is the sign of someone trying to experiment with things but are completely incompetent in what they’re doing. It gets worse when we enter fight scenes that look like they were edited frame by frame to hide the fact that they didn’t know what they wanted the fights to look like. The only time a camera holds for longer than a second is when someone dies off screen or Bi starts to suffer from her PTSD. And boy does she suffer.
They have a moment where she kills a random goon, gets blood on her hands, and when they return to their hideout, she vomits in the sink. She gets flashbacks to her first assault and the day her mother dies, which results in her trying to fight Thanh when she tries to calm Bi down. They fight in the bathroom and one of them knocks a valve loose, which causes the shower to turn on and shower both of them as they try to grapple and fall to their knees. This moment is meant to be a loving embrace between sisters during a time of need and support, with Thanh being a protective sister who is dedicated in making sure the new sister is able to get through harsh mental anguish whenever she is triggered.
This, my friend, is the entire problem with this movie.
I understand it’s meant to be emotional and heartfelt. I don’t deny there is thought put behind a moment like this. The music swells, the colors are somber, the water slowly falls on them as if to say the water purifies their thoughts and cools their head. I get it. But what the hell does any of that have to do with being a fury?
This isn’t about taking vengeance, this all feminist woes being presented for the sake of representation. Hong later on has a birthday party and they all celebrate by singing 90s songs(because this movie is meant to take place in the 90s) and when Bi came into the picture they had a makeover montage. This is an action movie written like a teen romcom without the romance and nothing in it is meant to be comedic. There are light hearted moments, sure, but I would never call it a comedy except for this one moment where a drug addict begs for drugs and the drug lord throws it on the ground for him to snort it, and then the drug lord pisses all over him.
To me, that is funny, but it’s treated as a horrible moment to make us hate the villain who doesn’t even really do anything. One of the most disappointing moments is when the furies sneak into a bedroom with him by disguising themselves as club whores and they have the perfect moment to kill him. Bi messes up by being too obvious with her stab attack and he runs away with a slight wound. This is where we have a fight that is meant to be a key moment: a hallway decorated with silhouettes of dancing women as the place fills up with black suited goons.
This moment is meant to show how brave and powerful the girls are, and all it does is accidentally present a massive stereotype where women can't get the job done and they are granted luxuries by having beautiful bodies while wearing a lot of makeup. When I saw this, I figured at least the action scenes will make up for the lack of theme, and… boy was I wrong.
These action scenes, as I said before, are a mess. Everything is a close up so we can’t see what’s going on and every attack is a wide swing that gets blocked by an arm that comes up 5 seconds too early. There is this back and forth that happens with each fight that makes it look functional and the music keeps it pumping, but it always looks like the fight coordinador told them to do everything wrong as a joke and the director was none the wiser. There are even moments where they use the wrong sound effect, like when someone gets punched and it does the stabbing sound effect.
Sure these are tiny technical things, but it gets worse when I am forced to mention the infamous bike scene.
So, Hong dies at the hands of this guy called Son, who is meant to be the dragon below the drug lord. Her boyfriend sees it, with her boyfriend acting as a spy who has infiltrated the drug lord’s ranks, so he’s standing there shocked and everyone ignores him. The remaining two sisters decided to run away on a bike and ensue in a chase sequence that is some of the worst CGI fighting I’ve seen in a while. There was no reason for any of this, they just put it in because the director thought it would look cool. I have no idea what it is with women and motorcycle chases, but there’s something where a woman on a motorcycle is seen as a “sexy” thing, specifically for women.
Not sexy to be sexual, but it’s something that women find aesthetically pleasing, and I can only imagine that it has something to do with the feeling of a bike vibrating between their legs. It also has to do with the idea of danger, because it’s easier to fall off a motorcycle than it is to fall out of a car with the doors closed. That, and I think it’s a fantasy for women to actually ride them without crashing. It’s the director’s way of saying “See! Women can ride motorcycles too!”, as if refraining from instantly crashing is an achievement.
But considering these are women and they are Asian, the fact they are not crashing instantly is a miracle.
What makes it funny is that in order to say “women can ride motorcycles too”, they put these women on a motorcycle and then transition it into a CGI race through the city with the motorcycle sitting in place in front of a greenscreen. We can easily tell this is happening because the wheels aren’t moving and there is the world’s fakest looking background flying by with whacky angles and movements being made with the camera. Bad guys fly into the screen from behind like TIE fighters in the old Star Wars movies, clearly breaking through the scenery, and I could not stop laughing at how terrible it all looked. And they somehow managed to make it worse by having a moment where one of the girls gets knocked off the bike and the other keeps riding to go up a ramp and onto a roof, only to get knocked off the bike herself and the bike flies off the roof and explodes in a corner.
I think I forgot to mention this but EVERYTHING EXPLODES in this movie. It’s as if the direct thought “hey, this part doesn’t have much substance to it, let’s fill it up with explosions.” There’s even a part earlier where they light a building on fire because it was a place where girls were being held captive. They throw lighters in random areas that have lamp oil or alcohol conveniently placed for them and random areas of the building start blowing up. What are you guys lacing in your cocaine over there, nitroglycerin?
Finally, we come back to the ending, the part of the story that ruined it for the movie. Bi and Thanh go to the drug lord’s hideout, they seek revenge for their lost sister, and meanwhile we have Hong’s boyfriend kill Son because… he was her boyfriend and had sex with her. Way to go movie, that sure shows what men care for. We only fight for those we bang and the sex was really that important for him. Forget meaningful things like a firmly built relationship or a child being made between a man and a woman, those aren’t important to a man. It’s all about the dedication someone has to a girl who sold her body for money.
But you know what? His motives and story aren’t important because we don’t even really see him. In fact, they bring in several characters that we’ve never seen before and act as if we’re supposed to know them. This is when they enter the drug lord’s underground casino, with the casino representing a massive gamble that this entire mission has been taking. However, the concept of gambling doesn’t mean much since the story repeatedly hits us with talk about fate, which is meant to relate to the sisters of fate in Greek mythology. I thought we were going to get some kind of motif going on every time they mentioned fate, but they just said “this is our fate” and that was it.
So they enter the casino and start shooting up the place. I don’t know what guns they are using, but they have enough ammo in their magazines to practically be infinite. There’s even an editing flub where they were supposed to show one of the girls reload, but they just show her pulling the slide back to load a bullet in the chamber, as if that’s enough. At least this part of the movie tries to implement gun-fu, but the way they do it is surreal because it’s entirely for show and there’s nothing practical in any of their attacks. They come with limited ammo and see themselves outnumbered, but they end up shooting people in the hands and feet while fighting as a way to ease off some attacks, to then shoot the enemy in the head.
Fast forward a bit and we have one of the stupidest twists enacted on screen. Jacqueline came with the girls to finish this once and for all, and while fighting she is seen getting stabbed in the back by a henchman. The drug lord watches it happen on a CCTV and celebrates. This looks like a perfect time for Bi to get her revenge on the main villain. But no, that would be the smart thing to do.
Instead, they have Bi and Thanh held at gunpoint in a room after a surprisingly difficult fight against a crackhead armed with a syringe who walked up to them like a zombie, and no I am not making that up. It sounds stupid, because it is, but they put that into the movie because someone decided it would be a good time to include something zombie related in a movie that has nothing to do with zombies. So, they’re held at gunpoint and then Jacqueline barges in and shoots the drug lord’s limbs to make sure he suffers. The boyfriend of Hong also comes in and is like “yeah, let’s get our revenge on this sick bastard”.
Then Jacqueline shoots the boyfriend of Hong. Everyone in the room is like “what the hell is going on?!” and Jacqueline kills off the drug lord and goes “Ok, now Thanh has to kill Bi” and both of them are just as confused as the audience. Even if Jacqueline was this new villain who becomes the new drug lord, it’s not like either of the girls would join her if she continued the sex trade. So, Thanh does the expected and tries to shoot Jacqueline instead, but was too slow and gets shot herself. The final fight is between Jacqueline and Bi, with Bi shooting Jacqueline several times.
But this is the part that made me really pissed: they fire the same gun over 30 times without reloading and then the second the gun is trained on Bi’s head… it’s empty.
The only way for this to be more convenient for Bi is if a bird flew in and airdropped a white turd into the eye of Jacqueline and had it explode for good measure. But because that didn’t happen, we have Bi tired as all hell and she collapses in a room full of dead bodies. Police come in and find her alive, arrest her, and then imprison her for 15 years. The big twist of this, the reason this is a prequel is revealed in this single moment where we see her leave her jail cell.
Who was Bi this whole time?
She was the villain of the first movie: Thanh Soi.
Apparently, the name is meant to be something like “she-wolf” and she took the name in honor of her dedicated sister in battle, Thanh Soi. This means that this entire time, the one we’re to be rooting for ends up being this horrible monster from the first movie that was kidnapping children and harvesting their organs. All because she… didn’t like to get blood on her hands.
If you think that none of this makes sense: welcome to the club.
The first movie was brilliant and coherent all the way down to a mythological level. It hit us deep in our unconscious and is something to be remembered years after watching it for how heartfelt each scene was made. It even brought some sympathy to some of the villains with how one of them was spared by the tiger mother because the guy’s own mother was present. It followed a theme of motherhood, while the second movie tried to follow a theme of sisterhood.
Where motherhood was filled with morals and justice, the sisterhood was filled with contradictions and partying.
I do not believe this was done out of a lack of budget or a rushed job. This was the result of how wokeness infiltrates even some of the least western influenced countries to create senseless garbage that nobody likes. We are not only to sympathize with one villain, but we are told that we have to sympathize with two, while the male villains are completely reprehensible. This movie was designed with woke Charlie’s Angels in mind and it shows with how they took three women to fight for a mentor and the only male on the team is treated like a bag of meat. What makes it more hilarious for me is that I’m constantly told by the woke that it’s bad to give women tragic backstories for why they become villains and there’s no excuse for having rape as part of this tragic backstory.
This is the feminism that is designed to trigger western feminists while hoping that Hollywood accepts it as “feminist enough”. This movie was not designed with men in mind, because female action movies are always plagued with over edited fight scenes, girl power moments, and romcom montages. I wish I was kidding, but I have yet to see a female focused action movie that refrained from doing these pointless representation calls, because the goal is to represent in this way.
She Hulk, Charlie's Angels, feminist Ghost Busters, Men in Black International, Atomic Blonde, Captain Marvel, Gunpowder Milkshake, Lucy, Jupiter Ascending, Disney Star Wars, basically every Disney and Pixar movie now. All of these movies are designed specifically to say women can do stuff guys can and then fail to show them doing stuff guys can. Then they wonder why these movies flop and get memed into oblivion. The only people who care about seeing a woman beating up men are angry women, because that is a low resolution view of what the movie is even supposed to say. The only people begging to see that on screen are women who hate men enough to want to beat them up.
This is not a lot of people. This is surprisingly a small fraction of the population and this is who these movies are trying to appeal to. Everything else around this low resolution declaration is meant to be spectacle for the sake of spectacle.
Why did the motorcycle explode? Because explosions are cool.
Why did the girls light a building on fire? Because fire is cool and it leads to explosions.
Why are they shooting the limbs of people? Because shooting limbs is cool.
Why does the camera get covered in CGI blood every 5 seconds? Because blood splatters are cool.
I’m not going to sit here and say something like that lacks style. It has style and it is spectacular. But when placed in a movie with zero meaning and zero purpose, this baseless spectacle gets lost in a sea of nonsense and there’s nothing to hold onto other than the possible impressive choreography or the impressive practical effects. This movie had a little bit of something, but it could never hold a candle to the dedication and effort put into the first movie. I also want to mention the camera work because this is also tied into woke ideology.
Every time the plot is trying to be expressed or shown, the camera and scenes are given the smallest amount of lingering. For example, a turf war begins after they blow up the slave holding… place and it’s shown as a turf war in two events. A person gets shot and people start getting attacked by random. These events lasted for about 5 seconds each. We’re told that Bi is homeless and fighting the local gang by having her steal a wallet and then have someone shout “hey, this is our turf!” all in the span of 5 seconds. We go from the girls going through an outfit montage during a plan to the girls working at the club of the drug lord in about 5 seconds.
If you didn’t get it by now: everything in this movie goes by the 5 second rule, but only when it is about the plot.
Do you want to know what lasts longer than 5 seconds? Moments where the girls are talking about stuff they like and parts where they pose together to present girl power. So to the woke, it takes the tiniest amount of time to show how someone enters the worst stage of their life, but it takes minutes to let us know that these girls plan to stick together and fight side by side. Everything important is done with quick flashes and everything unimportant is lingered on. This is a tactic of the woke to bring the mundane into the essential.
The goal is to feature tiny bits of important things to let the viewer understand why they are in that position, and then hammer in the idea of wokeness that the director or writer wanted to virtue signal for. The woke do not dedicate their focus on the themes of the story that matter to the audience and instead force the viewer to put up with things the woke writer is focused on so that the propaganda is viewed in the first place. We are promised a story about a mother seeking revenge and instead we are treated with the rise of a villain who became that way because she was abused as a child.
Using the woke lens of intersectionality and critical feminist theory, we can determine that the themes of this movie dwindled into arbitrary concepts like PTSD and girls trying to stay friends till the end. All of these are the result of mental weakness and toxic behavior that is now being given an excuse because the context of why they do these toxic actions are presented, even if it’s for 5 seconds. Now a woman like Bi is able to be excused for harvesting the organs of children and even blame men because it all started when her mother was a prostitute and a random drunk guy raped her. This is the polar opposite from how a tiger mother acts, because we are not trying to give excuses for a dedicated mother doing what a dedicated mother does. The tiger mother is a big part of what causes us to survive and is something to strive for because that’s what allows us to reproduce.
Being raped and then suffering PTSD over it doesn’t.
Thanks to intersectionality, the woke demand to present vices as virtuous and weakness as strength because this is how they take the outliers and bring them to the center. This goes beyond postmodernist subjectivity. It becomes subjective advocacy to obfuscate reality itself and pretend it’s incoherent just because their own agenda is incoherent. This is why every time there is a rule, they will pretend there is an exception to it, just because they don’t understand what that rule is or it’s not detailed in a way that prevents horribly bad faith takes. Every established rule for writing established doesn’t have an exception, just an attempt to reject what’s actually effective. These rules were established because they work and because people respond to them positively.
The woke hate positive results because those are the results that signify the rules work.
I don’t mind a female lead in a movie. I also don’t mind when a female lead is in an action movie. I don’t even mind a sisterhood or girls having magic powers or anything like that. Those things make sense to me when they are done properly, which the movie Furie did when they had the tiger mother as the protagonist and a harvester of child organs as the antagonist. That makes 100% sense to me, both symbolically and entertainment wise.
What I don’t like is when wokeness barges into established IPs and tries to change everything to say absolutely nothing of value. I’ve noticed that these feminist and LGBT stories always try to deal with the same nonsense that is done in a sad attempt to connect with some sort of audience they have in mind. Sexual abuse, PTSD, feeling oppressed, mental disorders, spousal abuse, prostitution, sexual deviancy, leaving their family to be with a sexual partner, drug abuse, being found by a guardian lesbian to feel protected, entering a sisterhood or a group of fellow LGBT agents of destruction.
These types of stories don’t mean anything to normal people. We can see some of these things as a terrible thing to have happen and we can attach a negative symbol to these things, but there’s no way in hell a person who’s never experienced any of this feels represented. The representation of a minority, that just wants to claim oppression because of their own choices or because of something that rarely happens, is a losing game. Normal people will either hate it or not care. I have every reason to blame the director for these horrible decisions and I have every reason to claim her poor decisions are because she fell for woke nonsense as a woman.
But no matter what, I refuse to let such an issue deter me from liking the first movie, even though she’s the main actress. The people featured in a story mean nothing to the story outside of how well they can act the part and be the character. Now we even have to say that the actor must retain the source material and culturally make sense, all because the woke want to bring the outliers to the center and turn every Disney character black. Especially the red heads. I only covered the feminist aspect of wokeness here, so we can leave woke race swapping for another time.
Furie is an amazing movie that will be remembered positively for years to come.
Furies is woke trash that will only be remembered for how terrible it was.

2023.03.29 09:11 PikachuOfTheShadow Can someone ELI5 what's the difference between a gearbox, transmission, and differential?

Hi all, so I know my way around cars for basic jobs. For example, the jobs I can do myself are engine oil & engine oil filter changes, air & cabin filters, brake jobs and brake fluid chance. I even replaced an interior radiator on a golf (the one behind the dashboard which requires taking down the whole car's dashboard to access). That was enough knowledge for the kind of cars I used to own to service them myself.
I never had to service a gearbox, or transmission and never messed around with gear oil. It's not even clear in my head what's exactly the difference between a transmission, drivetrain, gearbox or differential.
Now I got a car with an S-Tronic DSG gearbox and I'm reading about it and it sounds super complicated. For example, it uses 2 types of oil. ATF on 1 side and MTF on the other side.
Then I read about the rear differential as well which has its own oil. And apparently, there's also a front differential. I'm struggling to picture the parts, how they fit in the car, and what they do. And because of that, I have difficulties understanding how to service those elements.
I'm chatting with people on a forum dedicated to my car to learn exactly how to service my car, but when discussing with them and when they mention all those terms, I found myself not being 100% sure of what they're talking about and I think that's my first problem keeping me from understanding the process.
It would be great if someone could clarify for me what is a drivetrain, a gearbox, a transmission and a differential?

Many thanks
