    To Tweet Or Not To Tweet? That Is The Question!

    Indeed, Isk nailed it. My social media usage is entirely restricted to messenger services and YT, where I tend to avoid the comment sections like the plague, plus what I need to do professionally.

    In that case, I'd recommend cleaning up your messages folder and writing to me with a few more details like where exactly you are and how long you are going to be there, because most of SW Germany is easy for me to reach on the weekends at least

    You might also look for people on this board who live close to where-ever you are right now. Sure, it's still getting to know new people, but there should be less time wasted looking for common interests.

    Your chances that he's into you are pretty good. Go for it!

    German politics xth attempt

    This is unfair. I do live in CSU country, but I never voted for these clowns and don't expect that to ever change.

    European Parliament Elections 2019

    "Asymmetric (De-)Mobilization" has been the Conservatives' electoral Modus Operandi (and quite successfully at that) for all of Merkel's time in office. I don't shed a single tear for them finding themselves on the receiving end of that strategy for once. But yes, in retrospect Spahn suddenly looks like the sane one in last year's leadership contest; a statement I would not have thought possible at the time.

    Of course not. But that's how it was sold to the American public last time around.

    International thread 2

    Which is why the current developments involving Iran are so scary. Bolton seems hell-bent on finishing the Job he started under GWB - because Nation-Building and the Export of Democracy (hah! Iran is probably the second most democratic mid-eastern power after Israel, at least more so than the Saudis or, sadly by now, Turkey) worked out so well last time around. These neocons should be kept far away from power.

    I didn't, but some of my old stuff is still online there, so I keep checking up every few months or so. Also, I used to be a moderator there and had some interactions with him back then that told me to stay far far away.

    This feels familiar. I think I left that very board eight years ago, in part because of the jerk-ass host. (Name is five letters long, starting with an H, right?) @Wolfgang I I feel you. Switzerland is already alienating with their cryptofascists, but the things going on in Austria right now are really scary. The Böhmermann interview lately was just the last in far too many cases where pro-democratic discourse was treated like lèse majesté.

    How do you put on your bra?

    @Triskele make up your mind. If you don't take that title, I will. @Tywin et al.I have gotten quite adept at opening them, by men's standards. I have amazed quite a few hookups with my ability to pull it off in reasonable time. Improve your gane!

    UK Politics: A Third Meaningful Thread

    You'll need 17.5M for it to count though... and even then I fear May will just ignore it.

    LGBTQ+ 6 -- It's a Rainbow of Flavors

    So... a person who has become a friend over the last two years told me on Friday that they are actually trans. I thanked them for their trust in telling me this and offered my support and care with that information. Still, this is a new experience for me, so if some of the good people of this board have any advice what else I can do for them, that is much appreciated.
