You're given a topic. You take a stance on the topic and have to back up your stance thoroughly with provided documents and outside information, and have to show your stance in past and future events. The topics range from importance of an event on history, to the rightness of an event and what caused the idea that lead to the event o arise.

American History post-Civil War is amazing, man. It's a topic that I love. My homeland is France, but the American atmosphere is an entirely different beast that comes with entirely different questions.

The novels are the easy part. Mahan's Influence of the Sea Upon History made america stress their Navy for the first time, leading to their Spanish-American victory and the Great White Fleet. Sinclair's The Jungle pushed for reform of American industry, namely the meat and pharmaceutical industries. All that kinda stuff is ez.

And I took 3 AP classes my Junior year and 4 my senior, but I was #2 in a class of 360. I'm not saying it's impossible, but you have to be beyond high-ability and have the right attitude the entire way.

Dude, that sounds great honestly. I get to research and write my own opinion.

American History post-civil war does sound interesting, sadly I've never learned about it. US History in the states doesn't teach about it until high school, we stop at the civil war. Right now I'm in a US History class and we're learning about the conflicts right before the civil war like the Compromise of 1850 and that sorta shit. Honestly I'm not too interested. You said your homeland is France yet you like American history. My homeland is America and I like European history, or really any foreign history. I don't know, when you live here your whole life you just get bored. I wanna learn about the rest of the world.

Also, how long do you have to learn a topic and write an essay about it? A week or what? I mean, getting that all down in a week seems like it'd drive me crazy, I would probably get used to it, but right now I'd die, mainly because I'm not used to doing a lot of work.

I'm in America, I was born in France and we moved to America. I was taught in America and currently am in college in America, although I spend considerable time in France.

You are given two weeks to cover a unit. One if it's a short unit. It shortens to one week at the end because it speeds up. At the end of the unit you write like you've never written before.
User avatar #378358 - shibe (03/26/2015) [-]
Two fucking weeks? Dude I can do this shit, not perfectly, but I can do it. One week sounds hard but two weeks sounds like it's something I could do. I'll just have to get used to learn so much material so quickly and actually having to do things at home. You see, all school work is done in school, no school work outside of school for me. I'm an extremely fast worker, so I get everything done in school with no worry about home. Now that I'll actually have to start doing things home is gonna fuck with me, it's gonna be like "Man, I'm gonna actually have to take an hour off of my time playing Europa Universalis 4 to actually learn shit, man this sucks".

Any tips you could give me, I may forget them but if they're good, trust me I'll remember them. I mean, I got like 5 months, but still, it's good to just be prepared. I'm gonna go into the hardest time of my life so far and I DON'T THINK I'M READY.

I doubt the freshman-level AP course is the same level as AP us history, which was a junior class when I took it.

Also, don't go into your classes with the attitude that you'll "get them done in class." You won't. Easy classes, maybe. By your junior year half of your classes will have to be done outside of class with no time provided in class. Just get them done as soon as you can at home, and review before tests. I don't care how good of a test-taker you are, just review.
User avatar #378360 - shibe (03/26/2015) [-]
It may be, I mean... It is an AP class. If it is, I'll find some smart people who can help me.

Wasn't able to get my algebra homework done in class, I forgot to bring it home today. Just a bad habit already, I'll have to rush it and get it done second period tomorrow and second period tomorrow I have to speak my opening for my bill in youth legislation that I was supposed to memorize tonight but also forgot to bring... Also, I got no easy classes next year. All honors and the AP class except for Geometry because fuck math it'll just be too much on me. So I'll have to get used to getting work done at home quick and fast, which I will get used to in time.

Also best test-taker of all time right here, but seriously I'll take your word for it. I only review like seconds before the test and I find it really helpful, but I need to do it at home as well. You did what I want to do because I want to go to a good university so I can guarantee myself a nice future so I don't die thinking I fucked up somewhere, so I'll take whatever advice you can give me.

That is not a proper essay, which was half of the unit's grade in the class. A proper essay would have sources, a by-the-books thesis statement, many more outside information references, and would be much longer.

And it is bad. Events with debated concepts and beliefs around them where you have to understand the ins, the outs, and the entire atmosphere surrounding it to fully get everything you want out of the class is bad. There are very few black and white answers in the class, the entire concept of 1898 being an important year in America is pretty much agreed upon, things like the rise of Big Business in the 1870s and America's progressive era contain ideas and beliefs that are miles more debatable.

The multiple choice questions are the easy part of the class, granted that you know everything that happened within the sphere of time of the unit, everything that influenced that era, every piece of writing that came from the era, every piece of writing that influenced that era, and everything that would be influenced by the era discussed

So few black and white answers? I guess that's meaning when writing an essay you don't have to be 100% on point, you just have to be persuasive? How does it work? Like lets say even though I read it's largely agreed upon that 1898 was an important year for US history, and I have to write an essay about that. What I think it wasn't as important of a year as we thought it was and I provide good points? Like I'm a bit confused, I know there's a lot of essay writing which doesn't bother me at all, honestly I could write forever about a topic if I enjoy it. , but how much flexibility do I have with my writing?

God, I wonder how much information I actually need to know, and how long do you have to learn all of this and write about it? A week? God that seems so fucking stressful, I'm lazy when it comes to that kind of stuff. But hey, at least I'm not doing US History next year, I really think US history is boring. If I could do an AP class for European history man or how about an AP class for Germanic history dude I'd love that. But fuck does AP Us History sound like it sucks. I don't wanna learn about every fucking novel by Harriet Beecher Stowe or whoever wrote important novels in US History. I don't mind learning the ones that like, influenced people, like Uncle Toms Cabin. But I don't wanna read some obscure fucking novel that really had no effect on US History.

By the way, do you think it's possible to do multiple AP classes at once, like... 3-4 at once? Because that's kinda what I'm planning on doing my Junior year.

Let me do an example of the in-depth changes I experienced in high school, since I was a TA for the teacher who taught US History, while I was in APUSH

US History Class: In the year 1898, America won the Spanish-American war, gaining Puerto Rico and the Philippines

APUSH class: In the year 1898, America, assisted by Cuban and Filipino revolutionaries, quickly defeated the declining Spanish Empire in both the Atlantic and Pacific, signaling the America's immersion as a World Power. Intense debate would come over America's new role coming with their new-found preeminence on the world stage. Americans decided to avoid their ambitions of a Caribbean empire, which they held since the days of Thomas Jefferson, and held Cuba as a protectorate, although not without a heavy hand in their affairs, even going as far as putting a clause into the Cuban constitution that America could actively intervene in the country when they felt that "the freedom and stability of the country was at stake," effectively giving them an open door to intervene.

In the Philippines, America turned on their promise to release the newly-freed country under their own control, because of held-notions that they were incapable of ruling over themselves. An intense war with many filipino citizen casualties with the revolutionaries would follow, although suppressed in modern days as the Filipino-American War. A politician with the last name of Taft would come and be the governor of the province, ruling with a moderately fair fist, but the stain of imperialism and the blood of the natives would remain.

The debate of Imperialism would control the country for the next few years, even with the obvious Roosevelt empowerment that the country would undergo. The Roosevelt Corollary to Monroe Doctrine would guide us in the New World, his "walk softly and carry a big stick" mantra would be our cry running the politics of the newly-freed Latin American countries. He would assist the Panamanians fighting against their Columbian overlords, and in exchange we would get the land for the Panama Canal. He would also get us to near fisticuffs with England in Venezuela, fighting over borders.

It looks scary, but really that doesn't seem to be that scary. I just wonder what the test are like, like what would be a question for that. I mean, we learn a bit, but a lot of what we learn isn't really put on test, it's just kinda added information I guess to try to make it more interesting.

If you take something like APUSH (US History), it's all primary sources and 2nd-hand sources and handles concepts and debated topics over black-and-white events.

If it's AP, that means it was designed by a college board (At least in my state), but we never had any Freshie AP classes, so I can't imagine it being too in-depth and involved.

Like lets say even though I read it's largely agreed upon that 1898 was an important year for US history, and I have to write an essay about that. What I think it wasn't as important of a year as we thought it was and I provide good points? Like I'm a bit confused, I know there's a lot of essay writing which doesn't bother me at all, honestly I could write forever about a topic if I enjoy it. , but how much flexibility do I have with my writing?

God, I wonder how much information I actually need to know, and how long do you have to learn all of this and write about it? A week? God that seems so fucking stressful, I'm lazy when it comes to that kind of stuff. But hey, at least I'm not doing US History next year, I really think US history is boring. If I could do an AP class for European history man or how about an AP class for Germanic history dude I'd love that. But fuck does AP Us History sound like it sucks. I don't wanna learn about every fucking novel by Harriet Beecher Stowe or whoever wrote important novels in US History. I don't mind learning the ones that like, influenced people, like Uncle Toms Cabin. But I don't wanna read some obscure fucking novel that really had no effect on US History.

By the way, do you think it's possible to do multiple AP classes at once, like... 3-4 at once? Because that's kinda what I'm planning on doing my Junior year.

You're given a topic. You take a stance on the topic and have to back up your stance thoroughly with provided documents and outside information, and have to show your stance in past and future events. The topics range from importance of an event on history, to the rightness of an event and what caused the idea that lead to the event o arise.

American History post-Civil War is amazing, man. It's a topic that I love. My homeland is France, but the American atmosphere is an entirely different beast that comes with entirely different questions.

The novels are the easy part. Mahan's Influence of the Sea Upon History made america stress their Navy for the first time, leading to their Spanish-American victory and the Great White Fleet. Sinclair's The Jungle pushed for reform of American industry, namely the meat and pharmaceutical industries. All that kinda stuff is ez.

And I took 3 AP classes my Junior year and 4 my senior, but I was #2 in a class of 360. I'm not saying it's impossible, but you have to be beyond high-ability and have the right attitude the entire way.

Dude, that sounds great honestly. I get to research and write my own opinion.

American History post-civil war does sound interesting, sadly I've never learned about it. US History in the states doesn't teach about it until high school, we stop at the civil war. Right now I'm in a US History class and we're learning about the conflicts right before the civil war like the Compromise of 1850 and that sorta shit. Honestly I'm not too interested. You said your homeland is France yet you like American history. My homeland is America and I like European history, or really any foreign history. I don't know, when you live here your whole life you just get bored. I wanna learn about the rest of the world.

Also, how long do you have to learn a topic and write an essay about it? A week or what? I mean, getting that all down in a week seems like it'd drive me crazy, I would probably get used to it, but right now I'd die, mainly because I'm not used to doing a lot of work.
User avatar #378357 - themanwithnoplan (03/26/2015) [-]
I'm in America, I was born in France and we moved to America. I was taught in America and currently am in college in America, although I spend considerable time in France.

You are given two weeks to cover a unit. One if it's a short unit. It shortens to one week at the end because it speeds up. At the end of the unit you write like you've never written before.
User avatar #378358 - shibe (03/26/2015) [-]
Two fucking weeks? Dude I can do this shit, not perfectly, but I can do it. One week sounds hard but two weeks sounds like it's something I could do. I'll just have to get used to learn so much material so quickly and actually having to do things at home. You see, all school work is done in school, no school work outside of school for me. I'm an extremely fast worker, so I get everything done in school with no worry about home. Now that I'll actually have to start doing things home is gonna fuck with me, it's gonna be like "Man, I'm gonna actually have to take an hour off of my time playing Europa Universalis 4 to actually learn shit, man this sucks".

Any tips you could give me, I may forget them but if they're good, trust me I'll remember them. I mean, I got like 5 months, but still, it's good to just be prepared. I'm gonna go into the hardest time of my life so far and I DON'T THINK I'M READY.

I doubt the freshman-level AP course is the same level as AP us history, which was a junior class when I took it.

Also, don't go into your classes with the attitude that you'll "get them done in class." You won't. Easy classes, maybe. By your junior year half of your classes will have to be done outside of class with no time provided in class. Just get them done as soon as you can at home, and review before tests. I don't care how good of a test-taker you are, just review.

It may be, I mean... It is an AP class. If it is, I'll find some smart people who can help me.

Wasn't able to get my algebra homework done in class, I forgot to bring it home today. Just a bad habit already, I'll have to rush it and get it done second period tomorrow and second period tomorrow I have to speak my opening for my bill in youth legislation that I was supposed to memorize tonight but also forgot to bring... Also, I got no easy classes next year. All honors and the AP class except for Geometry because fuck math it'll just be too much on me. So I'll have to get used to getting work done at home quick and fast, which I will get used to in time.

Also best test-taker of all time right here, but seriously I'll take your word for it. I only review like seconds before the test and I find it really helpful, but I need to do it at home as well. You did what I want to do because I want to go to a good university so I can guarantee myself a nice future so I don't die thinking I fucked up somewhere, so I'll take whatever advice you can give me.

If you take something like APUSH (US History), it's all primary sources and 2nd-hand sources and handles concepts and debated topics over black-and-white events.

If it's AP, that means it was designed by a college board (At least in my state), but we never had any Freshie AP classes, so I can't imagine it being too in-depth and involved.

Let me do an example of the in-depth changes I experienced in high school, since I was a TA for the teacher who taught US History, while I was in APUSH

US History Class: In the year 1898, America won the Spanish-American war, gaining Puerto Rico and the Philippines

APUSH class: In the year 1898, America, assisted by Cuban and Filipino revolutionaries, quickly defeated the declining Spanish Empire in both the Atlantic and Pacific, signaling the America's immersion as a World Power. Intense debate would come over America's new role coming with their new-found preeminence on the world stage. Americans decided to avoid their ambitions of a Caribbean empire, which they held since the days of Thomas Jefferson, and held Cuba as a protectorate, although not without a heavy hand in their affairs, even going as far as putting a clause into the Cuban constitution that America could actively intervene in the country when they felt that "the freedom and stability of the country was at stake," effectively giving them an open door to intervene.

In the Philippines, America turned on their promise to release the newly-freed country under their own control, because of held-notions that they were incapable of ruling over themselves. An intense war with many filipino citizen casualties with the revolutionaries would follow, although suppressed in modern days as the Filipino-American War. A politician with the last name of Taft would come and be the governor of the province, ruling with a moderately fair fist, but the stain of imperialism and the blood of the natives would remain.

The debate of Imperialism would control the country for the next few years, even with the obvious Roosevelt empowerment that the country would undergo. The Roosevelt Corollary to Monroe Doctrine would guide us in the New World, his "walk softly and carry a big stick" mantra would be our cry running the politics of the newly-freed Latin American countries. He would assist the Panamanians fighting against their Columbian overlords, and in exchange we would get the land for the Panama Canal. He would also get us to near fisticuffs with England in Venezuela, fighting over borders.

It looks scary, but really that doesn't seem to be that scary. I just wonder what the test are like, like what would be a question for that. I mean, we learn a bit, but a lot of what we learn isn't really put on test, it's just kinda added information I guess to try to make it more interesting.
User avatar #378341 - themanwithnoplan (03/26/2015) [-]
That is not a proper essay, which was half of the unit's grade in the class. A proper essay would have sources, a by-the-books thesis statement, many more outside information references, and would be much longer.

And it is bad. Events with debated concepts and beliefs around them where you have to understand the ins, the outs, and the entire atmosphere surrounding it to fully get everything you want out of the class is bad. There are very few black and white answers in the class, the entire concept of 1898 being an important year in America is pretty much agreed upon, things like the rise of Big Business in the 1870s and America's progressive era contain ideas and beliefs that are miles more debatable.

The multiple choice questions are the easy part of the class, granted that you know everything that happened within the sphere of time of the unit, everything that influenced that era, every piece of writing that came from the era, every piece of writing that influenced that era, and everything that would be influenced by the era discussed

Pay attention in class and take notes. Honestly, you won't even need to look over them most of the time. Taking notes helps you remember lectures and material. Study whenever you feel you need to, but don't stress about it or it'll just be counterproductive.

But I got gud at school when I got to college. Didn't study much at all and stayed on the dean's list for all three years.

There are classes that aren't taught in the class, you're meant to read the material outside and they lecture about the material during the class, meaning you can't catch-up during the class, you just sit there confused for a few hours.

Right now I'm in a US History class and we're learning about the conflicts right before the civil war like the Compromise of 1850 and that sorta shit. Honestly I'm not too interested. You said your homeland is France yet you like American history. My homeland is America and I like European history, or really any foreign history. I don't know, when you live here your whole life you just get bored. I wanna learn about the rest of the world.

Also, how long do you have to learn a topic and write an essay about it? A week or what? I mean, getting that all down in a week seems like it'd drive me crazy, I would probably get used to it, but right now I'd die, mainly because I'm not used to doing a lot of work.

I'm in America, I was born in France and we moved to America. I was taught in America and currently am in college in America, although I spend considerable time in France.

You are given two weeks to cover a unit. One if it's a short unit. It shortens to one week at the end because it speeds up. At the end of the unit you write like you've never written before.

Two fucking weeks? Dude I can do this shit, not perfectly, but I can do it. One week sounds hard but two weeks sounds like it's something I could do. I'll just have to get used to learn so much material so quickly and actually having to do things at home. You see, all school work is done in school, no school work outside of school for me. I'm an extremely fast worker, so I get everything done in school with no worry about home. Now that I'll actually have to start doing things home is gonna fuck with me, it's gonna be like "Man, I'm gonna actually have to take an hour off of my time playing Europa Universalis 4 to actually learn shit, man this sucks".

Any tips you could give me, I may forget them but if they're good, trust me I'll remember them. I mean, I got like 5 months, but still, it's good to just be prepared. I'm gonna go into the hardest time of my life so far and I DON'T THINK I'M READY.

I doubt the freshman-level AP course is the same level as AP us history, which was a junior class when I took it.

Also, don't go into your classes with the attitude that you'll "get them done in class." You won't. Easy classes, maybe. By your junior year half of your classes will have to be done outside of class with no time provided in class. Just get them done as soon as you can at home, and review before tests. I don't care how good of a test-taker you are, just review.

It may be, I mean... It is an AP class. If it is, I'll find some smart people who can help me.

Wasn't able to get my algebra homework done in class, I forgot to bring it home today. Just a bad habit already, I'll have to rush it and get it done second period tomorrow and second period tomorrow I have to speak my opening for my bill in youth legislation that I was supposed to memorize tonight but also forgot to bring... Also, I got no easy classes next year. All honors and the AP class except for Geometry because fuck math it'll just be too much on me. So I'll have to get used to getting work done at home quick and fast, which I will get used to in time.

Also best test-taker of all time right here, but seriously I'll take your word for it. I only review like seconds before the test and I find it really helpful, but I need to do it at home as well. You did what I want to do because I want to go to a good university so I can guarantee myself a nice future so I don't die thinking I fucked up somewhere, so I'll take whatever advice you can give me.

I didn't take AP in high school and generally had a very average GPA.

But I got gud at school when I got to college. Didn't study much at all and stayed on the dean's list for all three years.

But really, I guess it just depends on the course and how the teacher teaches. You might need to study. Also, I guess it may have been easier for me because my school only had us taking one class at a time.

Pay attention in class and take notes. Honestly, you won't even need to look over them most of the time. Taking notes helps you remember lectures and material. Study whenever you feel you need to, but don't stress about it or it'll just be counterproductive.

You'll be fine. Besides, freshman year is the easiest year in college.

A few decades ago the discrepancy between the sexes was really bad, and one of the president administrations (forget which one) set it as their educational focus to bridge that gap through extra assistance for women. Nowadays most college graduates are women, thanks to administrative action as well as a plethora of other things. The gap between male and female scholarships are artifacts of that, and nobody wants to end it and be known as the people who "took money away from women's education." Although plentiful scholarships are far from a bad thing

Absolutely not what I'm saying.

I'm saying album art is usually a representation of the music in the album, and I believe it honestly should be that way. But even if I like the music, does not mean I'll like the cover, even if the cover is perfectly representative of the music. I'm not judging on a technical standpoint, I'm judging just based on how the art makes me feel, and that is not influenced that much by how I think of the music.

Lets take this cover, I like this cover. It's simple, it is aesthetically pleasing. But do I like the music of it? Absolutely not, it's awful.

Most people don't know it, but there is a far older piece of educed audio being circulated, but only amongst scholars of ancient civilizations.

In 2008 an archaeologist named Manuela Correia was searching for lost artifacts in the Southwest Palace of King Sennacherib, the location that the Library of Ashurbanipal was discovered at. The expedition was a success, as 32 tablets were discovered together in a chest that was buried under fifteen feet of earth.

The tablets seemed to have come from different sources, but in general were from the Neo-Assyrian period and seemed to be contemporary with the famous library. The earliest date that could be identified was from around 648 BC, as it mentions the consequences of the rebellion of Shamash-shum-ukin as a recent event. The tablets were often cracked and worn which rendered much of them unreadable, but it was clear that they had a common theme. They appeared to be the work of scribes sent by Ashurbanipal to collect information on ancient lore and history from the Babylonian region.

The texts told of a figure named Ramaash of Susa, a highly enigmatic figure in science and philosophy of the Ancient Near East comparable to Pythagorus. This comparison is very apt because like the Greek, he had a cult that followed his teachings very closely and resembled later esoteric traditions such as freemasons and rosicrucians. After an analysis and translation of the tablets in the chest, one of them was discovered to be the earliest educed piece of audio yet discovered, an ancient engraving of Ramaash's own voice. The only other source discovered that mentions Ramaash is an obscure manuscript by Athenian historian Praxagoras, which also unfortunately happens to be incomplete.

By combining the ancient tablets and Praxagoras's manuscript, this is what is known of Ramaash:

Ramaash of Susa arrived in Babylonia during the late reign of Hammurabi, somewhere around 1760 BC. No notes of his origin have survived aside from the assumption that he had been born in Susa due to his name.

His teachings on religion and science were startling for their time and place. He taught that the Babylonian deities were created for nothing but control, and that the only true God in the world was named Kho. Kho was a being of evil who was older than time itself and inhabited every misery and misfortune in the world. Ramaash believed that Kho lived in all things and was responsible for the underlying horribleness and tragedy of the universe.

Unlike the Gods commonly revered in Babylonian, Akkadian, and Sumerian cultures, Kho had no form or likeness. His only visual representation was all-encompassing nothingness. According to one of the tablets, Ramaash believed Kho was beyond form. This was intentional so that he could never be seen or even imagined by human perception, for if humans were to do so it would surely spell their eternal doom. It was also said that Kho was the one who cloaked the world in night every evening. When people slept he would sweep through the landscape out beyond the limits of our sight and put vicious beasts and horrible monstrosities in the world as punishment for people's belief in and worship of other Gods.

Ramaash espoused the belief that Babylonia was a plague on humankind, and that only the recognition and fear of Kho would save humanity. Unlike other gods though, Kho apparently despised religious rituals and piety, instead urging humans to try to comprehend the world around them through philosophy, science, technology, and mathematics. Ramaash claimed that Kho despised humanity because humanity had the potential "to be as gods" if they exercised their minds but never did so. He further claimed that in the near future, humanity would be judged by Kho, and gave a frightening apocalyptic prediction for what would happen if people continued to practice religion at the expense of knowledge.

He claimed that the earth would be cast into a void of darkness for the rest of eternity, and in darkness all the plants and animals would perish, and water would turn to "the bitter pus of beasts". Then when all was dead and empty, plants with stinging thorns and poisonous odors would spring from the soil, "and spill the black and bitter blood of the earth". From the ends of the horizons huge monstrosities beyond the limits of human imagination would be spawned and would lay siege to the cities and devour their inhabitants.

Humans would be kept alive for this eternal punishment due to their wickedness, but they would still feel the pain of a thousand deaths. They would feel the pangs of starvation, their flesh being ripped by vultures, their entire bodies devoured by monsters, their lungs closed by suffocating aromas, and their insides melted by poisonous fruits, but would live forever with only more suffering to look forward to.

The citizens of Babylonia scorned Ramaash for his impiety, and Hammurabi quickly banished him from teaching in the town square. However, he managed to gain a small but extremely dedicated band of followers who continued to meet him in the wilderness on the outskirts of the city. In this removed area, his followers built a temple in the shape of a large dome. Here they were free to practice Ramaash's highly advanced science and engineering. Ramaash was interested in representing aspects of nature through mathematics, algorithms, and diagrams.

Like the secret societies of modern day, their work was protected vigilantly from outsiders, so his teachings remain mostly unknown. However, around 1742 BC, after the death of Hammurabi and subsequent inheritance of Babylonia by his son Samsu-iluna, Ramaash's followers took advantage of the disarray that fell over Babylonia and returned to the town square. Here, Ramaash explained that society was doomed to never understand the truth, that the only things that are sacred and eternal are death, suffering, and nothingness. He then added Kho would soon send a reign of darkness over Babylonia and the wicked earth it begat, bowed his head, and chanted something in a language no one understood. After this he slit his own throat with a piece of sharpened metal and fell to the ground.

The artifacts remaining in the meeting place of Ramaash's followers were then taken to the city for research, although what remained was mostly inconsequential. None of their esoteric doctrine survived. One of only remnants was an engraving that managed to function as an extremely primitive spectrogram, and another slab explaining it as such, both of which wound up in the chest unearthed by Manuela Correia. The explanation that accompanied this "spectrogram" only stated the following, roughly translated into English:

Here lies the voice of Ramaash, the most wise and most [inquired?] of the accursed city

clay lives eternally the wicked city Babylon

Hail Kho and [repent?]

It makes no mention of the method used to capture Ramaash's vocal tones. This knowledge died with his followers and continues to baffle scholars.

Recently however, the engraved slab that Ramaash used to save his voice for future generations has been translated into audio by experts in a similar field as Patrick Feaster, the man primarily responsible for this collection. This is the yielded result:

Okay, Ive had these two friends for a long time. one since sixth grade, one since ninth grade.
Last year and earlier this year i was in a relationship with the girl, the one ive known since sixth grade. our friend since ninth grade, the dude, is a heavy smoker, drug dealer (cocaine, weed, and xanax). she would always comment on how he's too violent, he would hit a woman, and he's mean. He's threatened to kill his last two girlfriends and got suspended for harassment multiple times.

skip ahead a few months, they're dating now. recently, he got suspended for stealing an RLC's (the adult who lives on the hall with all the guys) ipad, and selling it.
at this point im worried about my ex, i know he's a huge manipulator and will end up doing what he did with the other girls to her. i still care about her, but she just blows off everything i say and say that she trusts that he's changed.

so, i stop talking to the both of them.
Now, this is about a week ago. (BOUT A WEEK AGO WEEK AGO). my roommate has been missing his ipad for a month, and I've been missing my room key and my id for a month (i had to buy a new one)
he's gone, so we decide to look for my roommates ipad in the guys room. we pull out a drawer, and there's my key and id, and three other keys. all those people have had stuff missing from them since they lost their keys.
this ************ stole my key and had access to my room for the past month, and when i asked him if he's seen my keys he straight up lied. now he has the nerve to tell me to apologize for accusing him of stealing stuff, and he says hes never stolen anything before.
he ****** stole so many cds from an independent record store, steals peoples headphones and sells them to his druggie friends, and also took his suitemates GKMC vinyl.
he always brags about stealing.

good news though, he got expelled. so **** that *****

My favourite song. You a big fan? I never realised the need for Ian Curtis GIFs until now
User avatar #3745 to #3744 - shibe (03/06/2015) [-]
i don't know how many authentic ian curtis gifs there are, that gif is from the movie control which if you haven't seen, watch it, it's pretty good

Not really sure I could say I'm a big fan, but Unknown Pleasures is one of my favorite albums of all time and Love Will Tear Us Apart is probably top 5 of my favorite songs of all time. But I do like their music a lot, and it was because of them I started checking out more music under the genre post-punk, which is now my favorite genre of all time.
#3746 to #3745 - whathappenedtofj (03/06/2015) [-]
This is from their live performance on Something Else, it's great quality on YouTube. I ain't seen Control, it looks great. Have you seen 24-Hour Party People?    
   
Fair enough, it's always great to meet someone else who's into them. Same, I'd say Unknown Pleasures is my favourite album. Closer is up there too. You like New Order?

Haven't seen 24-Hour Party People, I may check it out soon.

Never could really enjoy Control, it's not bad, but it's not something I'm like "woah this is amazing" like I am with Unknown Pleasures.

New Order is cool, however I haven't really checked them out either. I need to like download some of their albums, I only have their compilation Substance. I had Power, Corruption & Lies but I think I only listened to it once and forgot about it, and it's easy to forget about some albums when you have over 1,000 of them.
User avatar #3748 to #3747 - whathappenedtofj (03/06/2015) [-]
It's good, it chronicles Joy Division and then New Order, and the Happy Mondays. It's focused on Tony Wilson, the guy at Factory Records. It's funny in places and there's a bit of artistic license used here and there but it's worth the watch.

I like New Order too, they're more pop but still, lots of bass and lyrics about disconnection etc. I think Ceremony, their first single, has about 1000 plays on my iTunes Yeah I buy my music, what a scrub What else you into man?

User avatar #3750 to #3749 - whathappenedtofj (03/06/2015) [-]
Interesting choices, mate. Must admit I only recognise about a dozen of those bands and have music from half. I like my old **** , Beatles, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd, Marvin Gaye, Sex Pistols, Madness, Specials, Radiohead and Oasis.

I'll leave you to it.
#3751 to #3750 - shibe (03/07/2015) [-]
I don't blame you, my music taste is fairly weird and there is a lot of extremely obscure bands in there.    
   
Never bad to like the classics. A lot of the times I feel like I missed out a lot in the classics, I've only listened to one Pink Floyd album and haven't listened to a thing by a lot of those. But there's a lot to enjoy if you go searching for some more obscure stuff.    
   
www.youtube.com/watch?v=ldLk0rQORHY The Chameleons are great, they have the same atmosphere as joy division imo and also make music just as good.    
   
www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5VtuJROYc8 If you like the Sex Pistols, you may wanna check out John Lydon's other attempt at destroying music. Public Image Ltd is a much more experimental, much weirder band. They make some of the quirkiest music I've ever listened to, and for some reason it's so appealing.    
   
   Also I'm gonna pitch in my favorite album of all time, Pink Flag by Wire. Great punk album that came out late 77', and it's something special. I feel like it should be more praised, and help up there with other punk classics like London Calling and Never Mind the Bollocks Here's the Sex Pistols.    
   
Just some recommendations on my part, I can't promise you'll like them but I feel like they're worth checking out at least once. You know there are some albums where you're like "Everyone should check this out at least ONCE!" because they're so good.
