  1. "I'm sorry I shot Steve Lake." "They felt silenced. And they wanted to give you a taste of your own medicine by uploading J.J.'s body (of "work") into yours." ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ "Not by any means a corrections of the original work, I mean my god can you imagine that kinda hubris? Different people might make different choices though when it's between them and their page. Historical, digital, or physical." - Me
  2. That was in poor taste. I apologize ETA2: this comment, in poor taste I mean. I stand by the above one. I am... excited. And not in a positive direction. I am sorry
  3. Yeah, this whole thing is an exercise in some truly supreme comedic screenwriting. I didn't believe in god until just now, when the scope of the hilarity was finally revealed to me. Guys, this is fucking great. I mean, c'mon. Like we all know that Donald Trump is a Chinese agent. And a Russian agent. And a Saudi agent, an Iranian agent, a North Korean, South Korean, and I'm sure an equatorial Korean agent as well. Because he's the agent of the person who is standing closest to him, hand unseen. That's just who the dude is. It's not even _entirely_ that he's a weak little pissant who couldn't even get pissed on by a fucking ant if he wasn't paying for it. That's actually not it. He's just a fucking traitor. He's a piece of shit. An opportunist of the highest quality. VeRy hIgH quality. We all know this. I'm not saying anything we don't know. Yo, he's not in there rifling through papers looking for what Xi (his delegate) wants, the delegate is just fishing in Donnie DumDum's maelstrom of personality deficiencies that permineralized away his white and grey matter decades ago. And if you use the right baits, a good hook, and the delegate (from Xi, or whomever) brought along a slave who actually knows how to use that mouth of hers DING! <By the way, I'm going to request that you don't remove that slave bit, because there's 50 million slaves in the world right now and men like Donald Trump make use of them directly or indirectly every day > Meanwhile, oh poor President Biden. Seriously. He's a good American. I don't think highly of politicians, but Joe just ain't got it in him to be a scumbag. He's too honest. Just can't do it. Be dumb? Totally. Weird? Absolutely. Excessively Familiar? You Betcha. Behind the Times? Motherfucker was born behind the Post. I think he's a good man. I appreciate that when Gondor's need was most dire, he gathered up his Green Ghostly Bones and marched out of the dimholt road to fulfill his oath. But goddaMMIT JOE! And you know the fuckin sad thing? Folks are right, up thread about how this happens all the time. Because it does. Because whatever. But goddamn if he wasn't probably taking those documents because he actually did want to read them. He's fucking old. We all know what's up. And like a good goddamn man he was almost certainly actually trying to do his job. And he'll suffer more for it, because he actually cares when he fucks up, than Donald ever did for anything. Hang ___
  4. Listen, if the DoD isn't asking these questions what gives you the right eh?
  5. Gaul and Brittany, both. Though the Gauls were on the whole always both more virulently anti-fascist and pro-Communist according to anything and everything I've read going back (at least as far as pro-Communist, because 20th century self-described fascism wasn't a thing yet because a major communist state didn't exist yet and fascism (the scary German kind, not the stupid and embarrassing Italian kind) is just a fuckboi lance corporal's notion of a trollololololz at real socialism) to 1917 Sometimes it pays to be the Empire in slightly-faster decline? Now that's a thought that unsettles
  6. And to say nothing of subscription fees like license plates, insurance (health, car, house, or otherwise) dues, and any number of a billion hyper-marketed addictive pits for you to throw your ever-dwindling paycheck into that the government could work to make sure aren't taking advantage of its citizens without dimishing those citizens' rights to do as they please. But that sounds hard and nobody ever went broke taking a kickba-- I MEAN CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTION
  7. Now that's an interesting point of view. It never made sense to me that the tax burden for production/maintenance of the state should fall on the worker in a system that -at all but _all_ costs- empowers and subsidizes the employer and those who do not have to trade their time/lives in return for qualities of life that rapidly approach unlivable
  8. I thought that sounded familiar. Glad you told us where it originated. That really woulda keaten me all day...
  9. It could be more than a con. That's what makes me sad. I've known good leaders. I think we all have, or at least we all deserve to have known good leaders. I assume mostly that that's what makes a lot of folks want to look up to icons. Some grand figure like a King or a President who you actually do believe would do the right thing. Even if you know he's gotta keep his secrets, like he's not gonna sell us all down the river just to protect his other other castle's moat from getting too much pedestrian traffic is he? I know it's what makes me want to do so. But at the very same time, sometimes you need to put more effort into finding that person than luck-of-the-draw. Or, as can be charged at a certain country whose noble class I'm much more aware of (if not equally disinterested in), just saying "you got $$ and/or a personality and know other people with $$$? Wanna steal a bunch of money from a bunch of rubes and light it on fire and play p-o-l-i-t-i-c-s ??? " Good leaders aren't interested in gossip, tabloid or otherwise, and they aren't particularly interested politics as ends (I've found). Finding and entrusting those people from within societies is hard. Hello, Donald Trump, the example future generations will cite as the reason to never try democracy again when they're drowning in trashwater or starving on nutritionless food or cancering on cancer air... yeah, that's that.
  10. I would never discount the value of a sort of... permanent seems like an undemocratic word Perhaps a sort of consistent icon of moral virtueness and believery in timery pastery or what have you. But that position should be Earned, not inherited And really, that's the best you can do out of it? A rancid carbuncle of a dynasty with no political powers besides feeding scraps of venom to the press? Forget how they frame the question on the poll. "Do you approve of... blah blah" or however watered-down bullshit way they ask the question to get as milquetoast a result as possible... Don't you want better? For your damn dollar if nothing else? (I don't know what you people use for money now... straw? I'm imagining straw for some reason?)
  11. Somebody has to Anyway, I literally like ten seconds ago realized that Wade's profile pic is of that Santos character. Because somebody posted the same photo in another thread
  12. Well the great thing about democracy is that it has the ability within it to change a little every day, don't it? _Big things have small beginnings_
  13. I'm pretty sure I was first exposed to this odd substance by the film Our Lips Are Sealed Like, I'm pretty sure. VHSssss ain't been around for a long goddamn time. Anyway, yeah. It looked gross. But in America you have to thank people for giving you a Reese's. Like true American Girls, however, the Olsen Twins dispensed with your hideous EuroCommie sludge (I THINK it was this "nutella" stuff that was in the movie. Seriously, as I think back on it now I'm like yo that was at least twenty years ago. Anyway, this has been a presentation of Jace's Autism. Thanks for stopping by.) all YIELD all hail RHAEs! all YIELD all hail RHAEs! ... ... Bonus points if SIR Michael reads poetry to the chirens as evening lessons!
  14. Yes That's what he said They think that's cool It makes them feel powerful Are you confused? They feel powerful because ^that^ dynamic? That dynamic is power. And it takes more than an infinite list of buzzwords and optimistic appraisals (repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat) to do something about it. One might even want to... double their efforts... if they wanted to make an actual difference instead of a digital one. I don't even need to know the truthiness of this particular claim to tell ya that, playa. I live in the real fucking world.
  15. Well I don't usually go in for this sort of... thing... But I gotta tell ya guys. Just out of civic duty, if we do not qualify for friendship... I clicked on this thread expecting more jokes. But guys. I had my copy of The Lineages and Histories of the Great Houses of the Seven Kingdoms, With Descriptions of Many High Lords and Noble Ladies and Their Children open Just open! Right here, next to me on the table! Wadd're the odds of that? And such a ponderous tome, as well? And not to tell you all that you're blind, because forget this "Harold" boy and let him go live his own life. The real prince-who-was-promised, if I'm reading my copy of The Lineages and Histories of the Great Houses of the Seven Kingdoms, With Descriptions of Many High Lords and Noble Ladies and Their Children (tedious! tedious...) correctly here, and there's no reason to assume I am, then the real Prince Who Was Promised is Has any of the nobles been recorded as having a propensity for the biting of kneecaps? Or any other human part, for that matter?
  16. "Take a fucking chance, will ya?"- George Carlin ETA: because i am misskuothing mhor on
  17. No no no, you got it all wrong. His grandparents died in the Holocaust. Nazi bastards actually ate the food that their victims s(laved)erved to them. Just ate it. Right off the plate! Whole steps, literal physical steps, in-between Order Up!ding! and "Your Bvratvurst, Herr Commandant." These fuckin fascists ain't too bright, is what I'm sayin. Curves indeed ETA: We call ^that^ "writing off the page"
  18. Don't panic, guys! I'm sure our fifty year old transit technologies are utterly impenetrable to the intelligence and intervention services of nation-states that don't lurch from Boondoggle to DumpsterDisaster and call themselves brilliant for the effort. Don't be afraid. I'm here for you.
  19. Yeah baby. That's why I never understood the twitters and the thises and the thats' of those noisy fucking facebooks. If you washed up here I'm assuming that you can either read, or at least make it through Season 1. It makes a big difference. Total game changer. The ability to watch slightly-less-than-ten hours of a sophisticated television program, if not read the source material, is like the development of the Opposable Thumb of attention spans in the modern day. Even if you're an asshole or insane and you wash up here. I'm assuming we can have an exchange! I would rather eat American shit than American chocolate. I AM an American! I have not and will not watched the clip but I agree unconditionally, 150%, and you should all be ashamed! For something, if not this I'm sure! Danny Waaah!
