Someone rather undeserving takes the top spot. I think people have forgot all his MRA nonsense and all around stupidity.

But now...Yates. And this is a pretty damn clear HP vote. For those unfamiliar, he's the one who claimed to be dying of a brain tumor, was proven to be a hoax, and then returned and was promptly banned.

"The Group" never gets old. It's easily a top 10 Atlas post.

So today, I think the ultimate in this was achieved, in that the speaker, a very cute 20something girl, not only gave a sermon frequently touching on a very Upworthy-esque topic (her struggle with an eating disorder), and even had a format similar to the type of TED talks Upworthy likes to highlight, starting out talking tearfully about something a homeless Romanian guy told her while she was studying in Spain during college and then leading up to that, but that it was also in a spoken format that greatly resembled Tweed's "The Group" post, an obvious Atlas top 10 post. If you're not familiar:

ok, Inks, I won't curse you out.  just don't do that anymore.  because you want the numbers to look a certain way.  we all do.  but hey, it doesn't work out like that.  let me tell you a story, Inks.  back in the summer I hung out with this group.  we called it, The Group.  we hung out from mid-afternoon everyday to past midnight.  but then this girl came in.  well, she was there anyway, but she ed sh**t up hardcore.  and one of my friends was in love with her, but it was painfully obviously he'd never get with her.  then another of my friends fell in love with her around August 10th.  and she actually liked him.  but there was a problem.  my two friends that were in love with the same girl, they had been best friends forever.  literally.  so the friend that.  oh who cares.  the point is, it ed sh**t up.  and now The Group is no longer.  and I've tried to wink towards my past, but winking towards it doesn't work.  I've become obsessed with it.  and I want The Group back, but it's no longer.  I want the numbers to look a certain way.  but they don't.  sorry Inks.  it happens.  so don't mess with my entries and I won't mess with yours.  it's better that way.

So basically imagine lots of that, with a lot of Jesus and God reference scattered throughout as well. Very rambling, not at all prepped (no notes), obviously not rehearsed...and thus perfect. She even used the phrase "The Group" referring to her college dance team she was a part of. So lots of talking with her sobbing and choking back tears half the time, and then just pointing out how Jesus healed her of all her pain and freed her of all her chains and how Jesus can conquer all. It was so great I actually stopped hacking the church portal in Ingress because I was so intrigued. We may have achieved peak hipster Christianity, and it is WONDERFUL.

5  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Dammit, why can't I hate pop stars now like I did in high school? on: June 28, 2015, 10:16:15 pm
I don't mean in regards to their music, because that's just as bad as the days of Britney Spears, but I realized I usually have the opinion that while their music sucks they still seem to be good personally (and of course hot.) Like Katy Perry, obviously she's way hot, and she supported Obama twice and has said all sorts of positive things about teh gays. Her music sucks still, but she still seems like a really good person. And Demi Lovato, she's hot, and she's basically a hipster Christian and she had that gay pride parade video (reminded of that today because of Pride Twin Cities), so yeah she is really cool even though her music is terrible. And it's been known that Lady Gaga is really cool personally for a very long time. And even Miley Cyrus, mocked all the time for her Hannah Montana stuff, is now a liberal who said wonderful things about teh gays and apparently supported Occupy Wall Street.

It's weird and confusing.

Quote
Mine eyes have seen the glory
of the coming of the Lord,
She is trampling out the vintage
where the grapes of wrath are stored,
She hath loosed Her fateful lightning
of Her terrible swift sword,
Her truth is marching on

Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah
Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Her truth is marching on

I have seen Her in the watch fires
of a hundred circling camps,
They have builded Her an altar
in the evening dews and damps,
I can read Her righteous sentence
in the dim and daring lamps,
Her day is marching on

Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah
Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Her truth is marching on

I have read a fiery Gospel
writ in burnished rows of steel,
"As ye deal with My contemners
so with you My grace shall deal,"
Let the Hero born of woman
crush the serpent with Her heel,
Since God is marching on

Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah
Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Her truth is marching on

She has sounded forth the trumpet
that shall never call retreat,
She is sitting out the hearts of men
before Her judgment seat,
Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Her!
Be jubilant, my feet,
Our God is marching on

Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah
Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Her truth is marching on

In the beauty of the lilies
Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom
that transfigures you and me,
As He died to make men holy
let us live to make men free,
His truth is marching on

Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah
Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Her truth is marching on

She is coming like the glory
of the morning on the wave,
She is wisdom to the mighty
She is honor to the brave,
So the world shall be Her footstool
and the soul of wrong Her slave,
Our God is marching on

Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah
Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Her truth is marching on

Much better than the original. FR.

Atheist2006 ended up with the lowest showing ever once all his fraudulent ballot stuffing accounts votes are removed. He ended up with only 4 possibly valid FF votes.

Derek/barfbag...yep HP for sure. Though honestly he wasn't much worse than many of our current right wing posters.

The worst thing is lots of people probably feel proud for "winning" the debates against him or feel like they got a lot of SICK BURNS in.

I voted two stars because of its stupid lawsuit against Colorado. That downgraded it from three, which would be an upgrade due to its unicameral legislature being surprisingly FF lately.

Freedom action and a wonderful way to celebrate the 4th of July.

Yes, although aren't you supposed to burn on of these on July 4th?



I wouldn't, although if Scotland did in fact vote for independence I'd have no problem burning a Scottish flag.

Conservative who isn't willing to issue a de facto death sentence to millions of people is the best summary.

LOL! Robert Stark and NY Jew got the exact same percentage. Oddly fitting in a weird way.

As for Atheist2006, he was likely solarstorm. Make of that what you will.

Certain people on Atlas would tell you otherwise.

Scalia is at least entertaining, and is actually pretty decent on free speech and some civil liberties issues. So Thomas, clearly.

Of course. Even if you oppose Obamacare the other side prevailing would be disastrous.
23  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Opinion of Nate Silver on: June 25, 2015, 10:31:38 am
Silver has always admitted it when he was wrong. It's just that people don't understand how to properly measure if he was wrong, and he has to remind them that it's a bit more complex than the usual "but you said candidate X would win and he lost!!!!" nonsense.

The silliest criticism of him is the people who are all "But he predicted Brazil would win the World Cup, ahahahahahahahahahahaha!" like that has anything to do with his political analysis.
24  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obamacare faces challenge at the US Supreme Court (oral arguments today) on: June 25, 2015, 10:02:52 am

25  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: John Oliver condemns online harassment, the Internet responds predictably on: June 25, 2015, 06:30:47 am
Yes, Sarkeesian's videos are often poorly researched, show a complete lack of understanding of the material she's covering, often have the equivalent of when politicians make unironic references to Onion articles, just about every single criticism she's made of video games is about as relevant in 2015 as removable console memory cards and floppy disks, and she never responds to critics who validly point this stuff out, only the worst trolls who attack her.

However that is not the point of Oliver's segment.
