what's the TRUTH about swimming? does swimming itself make a swimmer's body? or are the "swimming denialists" right when they say that those people already had that body to begin with? Am I to lift too, to look good? what happens if I swim at a quick pace for 4 hours every day? what are the differences in training between having a sprint-swimmer body,and a long-distance swimmer body? >once this lockdown shit is over i'll sign up to swim 5 hours a day 6 days a week >how do I get a tactical swimmer body? need I also lift? >how do I learn to hold my breath underwater for 90 seconds?
swimming is basically upper body cardio which is important just like lower body cardio. just replace some of your run days with swim days if you are active. 5 hours of swimming a day is very excessive. maybe 1 hour every few days.

https://yewtu.be/watch?v=oErYYBNCHh4 This is a 6 part retelling of the Pacific war, and it goes into Japanese tactics a bit. Now, one thing I've realized before is that Japs liked bayonet charges so much because the average Japanese company had lots of machine guns and mortars compared to the average chink company, because the latter was often lucky to have anything more than one or two machine guns and enough bolt action rifles for everyone. Of course there were better equipped Chinese units, but those were the exception. It means the Japs could effectively suppress the average enemy unit and charge across an open field, because anyone who started shooting at them would face a whole lot of bullets and grenades flying at him. The average Japanese soldier was also better trained and better fed, so he had a good chance of winning in a bayonet fight. All of these together made the banzai charge an effective tactic there, even if it was somewhat costly in lives. But that wasn't a concern for them. I strongly suspect the chicoms started putting bayonets on their AKs because they were so used to melee that not having a bayonet was not an option for them. But what I really want to say is that Japs really liked infiltration and night attacks, and that is exactly what the chinks were doing during the Korean war. So I wonder, were Chinese tactics based on what they learned fighting the Japanese?
>>17948 >That were genuinely neutral Don't exist during the Cold War. Arguably Bhutan, but they were just a hedonist Buddhist sect camping out in the swamps below the Tibetan mountains. In almost every case where a "neutral" country existed, either America, Russia, or China was involved secretly if not overtly. My personal favorite is Indonesia. Originally the US was filming a fake pornography of the Communist party's leader set up to look as much like him as possible, until militants in Indonesia started launching a coup leading to the political plan being scrapped. Then, the US embassy proceeded to offer "asylum" to the commies being murdered in the streets so that they could hand over a list of names to the Indonesian military, all while claiming to be a "neutral party" in it.
I like the JGSDF wheeled tanks as QRF or expeditionary force. Now I hope some force adopts DMR's sots full power rifle cartridges for everyone. With varying degrees of optics for more specialized roles.

>>21284 >cakeniggers Why are people so butthurt at 8moe/v/? Even only looking at vidya boards, zzz/v/ is worse in my experience, and if you're looking to get mad you should be getting mad at the /japan/ niggers who actively used the event to fuck with other boards. Did the three you mention actually do anything or cause any trouble?
>>21299 >morbidly obese hands typed this post Hi Mark.
>>21301 Anon can be Mark for all I care. While I have no opinion on the 8moe/v/-zzz/v/ dichotomy, it is a statement of fact that /japan/ actively used the event to fuck with another board (/a/). One of the two clauses for grounds for removal from the webring. Not that I'm calling for their removal as it was petty and the damage was minor, but the point still stands. The only other board to cause problems was zzz/b/ posting pictures of dead babies the following day.
>>21302 >zzz/b/ posting pictures of dead babies the following day. Its likely a herdnigger up to their usual antics.
>>21302 >was zzz/b/ posting pictures of dead babies the following day. >blacked.gov trying to rewrite history with their slimy jewish tactics even during a Christmas event Disgusting, absolutely disgusting. You should really be ashamed of yourself. For anyone who don't know what this is about, there was a thread named "official 8moe/b/" on the seasonal /christmas/ board which OP literally started with a pic of a dead baby with a Santa hat shopped on his head. The pic was removed after a day or two, and a little later the thread was wiped by the mods as well. Now this absolute prime example of a yid here is going around trying to pin the blame on a board that hasn't had, and still doesn't have, even as much as a thread going on /christmas/. Take note of their antics and be reminded: BLACKED.gov = federal ran, kike controlled enemy of the webring

>>18874 >Also did any nation train bayonets as spears rather than thrusting knifes with a giant handle? My guess is that they didn't for the same reasons that was brought up in the fantasy weapons thread about gun hatchets. Bayonets are typical, if not almost always, directly attached to the barrel which means any stress that that you put on the bayonet would risk bending the barrel ad taking the whole gun out of commission, or at least affecting its performance. If bayonets were attached to the stock instead then that might be a different thing.
>>18871 Anon, we already have a thread dedicated to such things. It even has quite a few posts about bayonets. >>7658

Is this kind of handle practical, or just an example of rule of cool making it into the battlefield?
>>21266 Depends on what you're doing. It's certainly going to slow down switching to your knife because you have to get your fingers in instead of just gripping it. But if you're starting out with it in hand, maybe with a pistol in your other hand, it's pretty good for trench warfare since it allows you to use the front, the side of the handle, and the back of the handle (nice spike) for combat in extremely cramped conditions. Problem being, most people aren't gonna have a knife as a main weapon, and if they have to switch from their main weapon, it better be instantaneous. Maybe for stormtroopers.

>>21267 What makes me doubt this design is that a brass knuckle has this part part in the back that forces you to hold it in a specific way. And you are supposed to hold it in such a way that the brass is not actually in front if your own knuckles, otherwise the impact might injure your own fingers. Honestly, I'd like to see somebody actually punching things with that knife to see if it works as intended.

Since human life isn't worth anything, lasers as a "non-lethal weapon" are no longer banned as an affront to human dignity.
>>21185 Honestly, all of this shit is completely irrelevant. The fact that weapons are banned doesn't deter anyone who really is on the brink of collapse, and clings to survival. OTOH, isn't everything only banned after the fact only? And no one is judged formally afterward, gas, napalm, DU munitions, lasers... One just has to be really creative, and use the weapon as quickly and effectively as possibly, to gain a significant advantage In war. And when the New bad Weapon™ gets banned, you just shrug your shoulders and say "well, it wasn't banned before, so I technically didn't break any rules".
>>21186 They banned gas before its usage in World War I.

>>19636 I'm currently hoping it will prove to be that the lock block is "too tall" and grinding the legs down a bit will change the geometry enough to make everything work. New question: Since I consider the glockalike trigger to be mushy nonsense, and I like my memories of the 1911 I shot once a long time ago, do you think I should pursue building a P320? I see JSD is having a sale, and seems to still have the parts in stock. I'm hoping since the "module" that houses all the gun parts is pure metal that the trigger will be crisper. Maybe not as crisp as the AR15, but I'm also noticing that building a P320 will cost easily double, if not triple building another glockalike. Of course I'd rather have one well built 1911 than three glockalikes but that's a different tale.
Someone needs to design a 3-D printable drum magazine of about 40-60 round capacity for .22LR ammo. Not for any existing weapon, but for something /like/ the FGC-9 or some kind of Sten-like weapon, only made in .22LR so that ammunition is actually affordable in bulk even in cucked nations like Australia or whatever as long as you have the paperwork for legal funz, and people are not forced to rely on existing magazines like the FGC-9 needs (remember, for shitty nofunz countries).

>>11388 A 1929 investigation in Jiangxi showed correlation between low fertility in males and use of crude cottonseed oil for cooking. The compound causing the contraceptive effect was determined to be gossypol.[citation needed] In the 1970s, the Chinese government began researching the use of gossypol as a contraceptive. Their studies involved over 10,000 subjects, and continued for over a decade. They concluded gossypol provided reliable contraception, could be taken orally as a tablet, and did not upset men's balance of hormones. However, gossypol also had serious flaws. The studies also discovered an abnormally high rate of hypokalemia among subjects.[6] Hypokalemia (low blood potassium levels) causes symptoms of fatigue, muscle weakness, and at its most extreme, paralysis. In addition, about 7% of subjects[citation needed] reported effects on their digestive systems, and about 12%[citation needed] had increased fatigue. Most subjects recovered after stopping treatment and taking potassium supplements. The same study showed taking potassium supplements during gossypol treatment did not prevent hypokalemia in primates.[6] The potassium deficiency may also be a result of the Chinese diet or genetic predisposition.[6] In the mid-1990s, the Brazilian pharmaceutical company Hebron announced plans to market a low-dose gossypol pill called Nofertil, but the pill never came to market. Its release was indefinitely postponed due to unacceptably high rates of permanent infertility.[citation needed] 5% to 25% of the men remained azoospermic up to a year after stopping treatment.[6] Researchers have suggested gossypol might make a good noninvasive alternative to surgical vasectomy.[7] In 1998, the World Health Organization's Research Group on Methods for the Regulation of Male Fertility recommended[citation needed] the research should be abandoned. In addition to the other side effects, the WHO researchers were concerned about gossypol's toxicity: the LD50 in primates is less than 10 times the contraceptive dose,[6] creating a small therapeutic window. This report effectively ended further studies of gossypol as a temporary contraceptive, but research into using it as an alternative to vasectomy continues in Austria, Brazil, Chile, China, the Dominican Republic, and Nigeria. Targeting the males might not be as effective, but it still lowers their reproductive rates, and male infertility is not as suspicious, especially if infidelity is widespread among the population in question. And you can administer this orally.

whats best vehicle for SHTF? everyone says don't get a tank because they need so much fuel and you'll never need that much firepower, but how about an APC? should it be wheeled or tracked? or would you rather have a boat? and, if you can't get your vehicle of choice and have to make do with an ordinary car, what modifications should you make to it? what do you think, strelok?

>>19842 When I mean tip it over I mean the cause could be anything. Many boats have the center of gravity in such a way that once it is tipped over it is going down. and even those special ones where it is naturally want to stay upright is still going to get water where you don't want it to go.
>>19842 Depends on the specific area. On the pacific coast I don't think boats make much sense for SHTF. The rivers tend to be fast moving, with rapids, rocks and inevitably flush you out into the ocean, or perhaps one of the few lakes. Generally they'll move you toward the coastal population centers - opposite of what you want for SHTF. Plus the storms can be real nasty out on the coast. Fish is also not really a constant here either, outside the seasonal salmon runs there's not much unless it's a lake. However if the pros outweigh the cons for you go for it, good luck. you'll need it >Having to replace a tire on a truck or bike puts that mode of transportation ineffective for any long distance.
