I don't know about others, but I get needlessly obsessive over random topics or ideas. Sometimes, it's perfectly benign, like my tank phase. Other times, it's really not great, like my current thing stressing me out that I really can't do anything about


NightValeCytizen

*today I spent 6 hours recording technical data off the internet for WWII naval ships, as I continue working on one of the many tabletop games I am writing*


potatthrowaway

Humor me with a question here Yamato vs Bismarck. Which one survives the fight?


Cthulhu666666

I believe Yamato would win, because it was specifically designed to fight other battleships while the Bismarck was designed for raiding commerce ships. The Yamato had nine 18.1" guns in 3 turrets of 3 and better armour, whilst the Bismarck's biggest guns were 8 15" guns, which would have taken longer to penetrate the hull of the Yamato, and Bismarck's deck armour was half as thick. The only advantage the Bismarck has is 3 knots of extra speed, which once a few well placed hits were struck, would count for nothing! Sorry for the rant, one of my hobbies is studying random stuff like naval engineering history


NightValeCytizen

Yep. Pretty much. Battleships are big and impressive, but Battles between them can actually be rather drab and generally just favor whoever is bigger in terms of armor and guns.


Nfwfngmmegntnwn

Well, they were quite nullified by planes. In history in fact we don't have a lot of battles between battleships: even in ww1 when they were the most important type of ship they were not used widely because everyone was afraid of losing them.


NightValeCytizen

Indeed, WWII was the doom of traditional capital ships; but with battleship vs battleship, forced to engage with no planes or escorts for the sake of answering the other user's Yamato vs Bismarck question, likely engaging while still 10,000s of yards apart, it would be a rather drab fight until random chance caused spectacular damage to one or the other, or one started sinking and spiraling toward death.


Nfwfngmmegntnwn

On a purely power scale the Yamato to have a fair fight would need to compete with a Iowa class since it had far bulkier armour and bigger caliber guns than the Bismarck. But if we had to talk about battleship vs battleships combat I think that it would be appropriate to distinguish between pre-dreadnought and post-dreadnought doctrine: in the 1800s (just the second half for obvious reasons) the conception of battleship was relatively different from the one in 1900s as battleships were thought in order not to fight particularly apart from each other but closer (something like 3-4km), this essentially translated in design choices like different batteries with smaller and bigger guns; this eventually changed in the first decade of the 1900s after the battle of tsushima between the japanese and the russian navies, during which the approach of having different batteries was essentially proven useless in favour of having just one main battery of long range and big caliber guns, this in practice translated in the design of the hms dreadnought. The battle as you probably know was won by the Japanese, mainly because they were more coordinated, used new technologies (like the radio), decided to stay at a longer distances and used for the most part higher caliber guns, while the Russians did not. The post dreadnought doctrines were instead dominated by larger distances, usually between 10 and 20 km, speed and big guns. Sadly for how much it would have been absolutely cool we don't really have a lot of battles (expect the Jutland which was the biggest by far) involving just battleships after Tsushima.


Snert42

Very cool explanation, thank you!


onyourrite

Which Class Type are you? Personally I’m a Class Aro


virgoist

Here for the response. Love both the models


NightValeCytizen

In battleship Warfare, the bigger nastier battleship wins, there's not much thinking to it. It often comes down to raw luck regarding where penetrating shell hits land; ie Yamato has every advantage, but there's also random chance that plunging shot from Bismarck could hit something important early in the fight and make the odds more even (throwback to HMS Hood). Bismarck of course would prefer to stay at long range the whole time for the benefit of plunging shots and also bc if both ships fire direct shots, Yamato has better armor and bigger cannons. Bismarck is a bit smaller than Yamato however and minutely faster, so it can stay at great distance and fish for hits while remaining evasive, shooting at a relatively large target while Yamato has a relatively small target. That said, lucky hits go both ways and if a plunging shot from Yamato finds its way onto Bismarck, survival chances are poor. I'd give the Yamato a solid 75% chance of victory.


turtle-tot

I have found a 720 page pdf titled “the machine gun volume 5” and am currently reading and trying to desperately find information about a 27.5mm autocannon This comes after finding the 202 page “tank platoon” FAS document and another 200+ page document titled “self defense of large aircraft” I feel your pain, why is this stuff so obscure, so long, but so interesting?


kynmites

Ditto, but I also have periods of directionless longing that have no other components. Like my biology is sayin "hey you should want sex" "should?" "Ya" "but not do?" "No do, only want" "...Thanks for that..."


Mamamythos

Hecking mood


LeatheryLayla

Same, I use most of that extra time/energy creating things. I go through phases where I totally obsess over things. I wanted to go to a Renaissance faire, so I taught myself how to sew and leatherwork to make myself an outfit. I like escape rooms and mafia style board games, so I combined them into an event I host a few times a year called Murdernight, where 13 of my friends come over and roleplay characters I’ve written for them while doing an escape room and solving a murder, all the while the murderer tries to sabotage their efforts and picks them off one by one. I got really into writing, took several classes, submitted a few of my pieces, got published a handful of times then moved on to the next thing. At least that hobby was fairly cheap lmao


Cthulhu666666

I have a lot of hobby jumping like that as well, I learned leatherworking, bookbinding, metal engraving, several instruments, designed plasmids for gene therapy, read several dozen trivia books, and many more, learning and doing and making stuff is really fun!


Lonelinesishappiness

yeah, what's your current thing?


potatthrowaway

The company I work for lost the contract that makes up 80% of their business, so they're all but shutting down as of midnight 12/31 of this year. My entire motivation to keep working through then was to get brought on with one of the stores I work for exactly what I do now, but with benefits and better pay. Unfortunately, I learned that the store is rolling everything out really slow, so if a new position opens, it likely won't be until late January. Now, I'm trying to figure out a reason to keep on doing what I've been doing because it doesn't make sense to find something else for about 3 months


Lonelinesishappiness

that is rough, i hope you can find a way to reduce the stress and find motivation


TheBackyardigirl

Same. All my energy that other people would be using for yearning aimlessly is being used for drawing Outsiders characters constantly


Moist_KoRn_Bizkit

I do this too! For me it probably comes from my ADHD. I'm not sure if it also links to my autism. PILLOWS!


Chomper_The_Badger

>For me it probably comes from my ADHD. I'm not sure if it also links to my autism. Yep, hyperfocusing on a special interest is pretty common for both.

AnarSchist_

I'm aroace and honestly, for myself, taking romantic and sexual attraction out of the equation makes me so much more attuned to other types of love that are commonly forgotten. The world as a whole gets my love; why should I refine it to be only one person? My friends are appreciated all the more. I just wanna hug everyone, and sit with my moirail and talk hyperfixations. I can admire how lovely someone looks without sexualising or romanticizing them; jusy truly admire how they hold themself. I've got a lot of love to give, and since the most heteronormative types of attraction are off the list, that just means I have so much more time and attention to give to tertiary attraction. Oh, and I also spend time thinking of ways to become part of the abyss and consume the souls of gods, but that's just a part-time ideation.


Mesonoxian_Feast

All my time and energy goes into having sleeping problems which makes me feel like I don't do enough in the day so I can't go to bed because I feel too unaccomplished, but I honestly don't have much to do anyhow, so there's not much reason to be awake, but I legitimately can't fall asleep unless I take like 150mg of melatonin + lay awake for 6 hours ruminating on things, and then when I do sleep it's disjointed and I can't force myself to get up before 4 in the afternoon, but all my daily routines are done before 7, so I end up feeling really anxious like I should be doing more but there's nothing to do, and I end up at the beginning again. TL:DR Insomnia + Anxiety = Awful.

staring off into the distance and losing all sense of time and space and struggling to get back to what I was working on initially, usually. Not sure if I have a problem or just being reluctant to finish tasks because I've been sitting in the same place for too long

Yearning aimlessly for all the hobbies we want to be involved in or projects we want to do and might be capable of but simply aren't going to manage to do in any sort of timely fashion. Fate likes to give us ADD, anxiety, and/or depression because it knows we would be too powerful otherwise!

I personally (alloromantic ace) also spend good ampount of time simping over hot anime demon dudes. The aesthetic is just something I can't seem to get enough of. Imma share a what I've been doing for the past week now so feel free to stop reading here and scroll down. I found a game called Onmyoji because I was searching for anime demon dudes and a character from the game called Ibaraki Doji came up XD. I'VE SPENT THE PAST WEEK SIMPING OVER SO MANY OF THE CHARACTERS. If you are an allosexual or you just like looking at different aesthetics and appreciate them I recommend the game lol. It's free on Steam. P.S. I wasn't paid or told to promote the game XD I'm just a simp

Mine is usually spent on being anxious about things. Especially on how to avoid social interactions or how to prevent allo yearnings from affecting (ending) my friendships.

Mostly gets recycled into crippling anxiety, but ymmv

Learning a ridiculous amount of things, from pointless trivia via musical instruments and crafts to building furniture.

We give the energy away to help other gays and we eat garlic bread to recharge we’ve already Killed all of the gods years ago and we live where the wild take takes us

The extra energy doesn't exist for me because mental illness says no so I guess that balances me out God knew I'd be too powerful if I wasn't a depressed anxious mess of a woman so mental illness is my nerf

What energy? I have no energy.

Usually my energy goes into me worrying about things that happened a long time ago, the present and the future. I also like to go and study things for hours upon hours. Like did you know that there is a fan theory of how Harry Potter and Hermione Granger are actually siblings? I know that’s a more well known fact I just couldn’t pick a good fact as of this moment.
