2018-10-04: Search server active for recent posts, rebuilding for older posts. DesuArchive & RBT restored after host's storage had a 2nd SAN hiccup on 9/24. No damage, but posts need import from the contingency scraper. Many thanks to our new tetrarchy of sysadmins who worked to fix this complex service after the loss of the original admin. More info later. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.
Ghostposting is under extreme vetting by new moderators to mitigate spam. Crackspamming or responding to any is a bannable offense.

What is the best way to fight a Canadian goose or a swan that attacks you? Certainly a pistol would be overkill, no?

USA immigration

No.36117001 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Ausfag here, Is it almost impossible to immigrate to the US? From what I can find the fastest way to get a green card is through marriage? I doubt I'll be able to find a job, I don't have any exceptional skills, only intermediate knowledge of machining and mechanical engineering and a passion for firearms. Is my dream of becoming a firearms manufacter just a pipedream?

Favorite camouflage

No.39523019 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
What's up /k/. Having always been interested in weapons warfare, I've always loved camo.

I used to go to the surplus store with my dad as a kid and buy old medals and jackets at shit, we still hit them up occasionally to this day.

That being said, I've never delved too far into military/war history until now, as I'm going to be studying it in university starting next year.

What are your guys' favorite camos and why? If you don't mind posting the country and era along with your pics, and maybe a bit of background if you feel like it. Obscure shit is definitely welcome

I'm trying to learn more while gaining inspo for the next jackets I hunt down.

Diving

No.37143333 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Hello /k/, been interested in diving and recently bought myself a soviet IP 5 Rebreather, mainly because i am Australian and diving gear is expensive shit.

I also need to do a course to obtain my qualification to dive so i opted for another option.

I will be using it to dive up to 15-20m, probably even more. Using it mainly for rivers and such. Only worry i have is if the canister is confronted with the Air/Water (somehow it will set on fire which will kill the diver but i'm willing to take the risk.

Video of the one i got; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CowjpZDtNlE
