It’s become a tradition of mine to smoke a cigar on exam days, because otherwise I have trouble mustering the executive function to go back and check over all my answers after a couple hours concentrating on shit I don’t care about. Today is an exam day, and during my smoke I figured something out that shall benefit all humanity.
Before puffing in on a cigar, take about 1/3 of a breath of regular air. Once you’ve puffed and blown the smoke out of your mouth, use the extra air to also blow out the remaining smoke that’s hiding in your airway and would otherwise go into your lungs when you inhale. This will be a little uncomfortable and the habit takes some getting used to, but it’s much healthier in the long run. You’ll still get the nicotine high through your mouth, and the adverse health effects of this are unavoidable, but you won’t be getting that shit in your lungs. If you breathe in and out after a puff and you see some residual smoke escaping your lungs on the exhale, you aren’t doing it right. I’m not going to make the case that smoking and nicotine aren’t bad for you (I’m a cardio man, and I’ve felt the effect of smoking too much quite concretely), but again, at least you won’t have that shit sitting in your lungs doing God knows what in there.
There was another message from the occ that you won’t find useful, since monke insists on retvrning to Africa (everyone has a vision of Eden and for individualists it’s Somalia), but I’ll leave it here for saying neener-neener later.
While I was smoking I was thinking about how we haven’t built any nuclear reactors since the Jews set up the NRC to keep America enmeshed in the Middle East. How you could provide electricity to a city of 10,000 or 100,000 based and Jew-pilled religious conservative types after the country balkanizes and the ZOG just drones any remaining building higher than two stories? Well, turns out the answer is hydro power supplemented by wood gasifiers for military applications. I could explain why, but this is one of those things where you can either prove the counterfactual under your own intellectual power, or you can’t get there at all, and anyway I’m supposed to be cramming.
There are a couple logistical details that aren’t immediately obvious, like the necessity of doing military training away from the city–preferably next to another, less shrewd city your soldiers can trade with amiably that won’t understand the strategic destructiveness of your deforestation. Hydro also scales up or down for population sizes, and the first couple iterations are going to look more like a decentralized ancap/libertarian commune of individual power generators until more people figure more shit out and the technology proliferates a bit more, but ultimately you need a nation to engage in national defense and that means centralization around an industrial base. When that happens you can look at more autistic levels of defensibility like underground rivers, but ultimately the defensibility of one dam or another matters a lot less than just having a million of the damn things around the country.
If the collective right to electricity generation comes to be enshrined in the American public’s consciousness in the same way that the individual right to bear arms is, then we will retain our tenuous foothold on this continent. A rifle behind every blade of grass and a dam in every podunk river and creek, that’s the only way to do it.
You’re going to have a lot of alternative ideas, which is fine as long as you understand you’re wrong, because the occ has spoken.
