Why did "Einzige" call himself/herself "Einzige"? I guess he's either not German/Austrian/Swiss, or she's a woman?

Einzige was a sort of wannabe Nietzsche who wanted to appear cool with his German user name meaning something cool. His grasp of German was as bad as his grasp on, well, everything else really.

He got banned for an attack on me which might still be the most bizarre personal attack ever directed at anyone on this forum. He called me a Nazi, implied that I was sexist to Jewish women, was bald and, worst of all, that I was an accountant. As well as a knight of der sky.

This being Atlas, most people thought he was an interesting intellectual with original ideas, of course.

False.

There is no denying that the forum, as a whole, is rather far-left.

No, I'd a progressive New Deal supporter.

I don't know and I'm not sure why anyone would care.
Because when your phone dies you can take the battery out and put in another charged battery in? Not sure what there's not to understand here. Huh

Do people actually do this?

Apparently they do in Ingress.

Correct.

Yes, S6 doesn't have one.

Another thing about OC is that his election maps use 2008/2012 as a benchmark for EVERYTHING, including past what-ifs. He'd post this as an alternate 1860 of Lincoln vs. someone else:

Most Android phones have removable batteries. You're surprised?

Uh, it voted Republican for President as recently as 2004. It's a swing state and always has been.
109  Forum Community / Forum Community / Does your phone have a removable battery? on: April 09, 2015, 10:53:09 am
Yes, and I really like this. Part of why I probably won't ever get a Galaxy S6, they're taking one of the worst features of iPhones.
110  Forum Community / Forum Community / OC or t_host1 on: April 09, 2015, 10:48:27 am
At least t_host1 provides a weird sort of amusement. OC's posts are so bizarre in that they often don't make sense, and even more frustrating they'll sometimes make perfect sense but have absolutely nothing to do with the post they are in reply to. I remember I once made a post about how Andrew Cuomo had no chance of winning the Democratic nomination and his reply was something like "I support Hillary if she runs, otherwise I support O'Malley" (though with the grammar poor)

I'm a Christian, so it's not likely I'd vote for any of the almost all Jewish parties. So Democratic List of Nazareth I guess.
112  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Upworthy vs. politicalforum.com on: April 09, 2015, 12:56:54 am
Yep, troll. Upworthy is one of the best sites on the web. I love how they stay away from bland and boring headlines, and don't give away "spoilers" immediately as well.
113  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Which military service branch would you join if you were drafted? on: April 09, 2015, 12:56:11 am
I repeat, this would've been a WONDERFUL thread for opebo to lecture us about "The Bad Place" in.
114  Forum Community / Forum Community / Upworthy vs. politicalforum.com on: April 09, 2015, 12:49:27 am
Upworthy. politicalforum.com is just too boring to have any strong opinion of.
115  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Should we invade and occupy Bizarro Atlas? on: April 09, 2015, 12:14:09 am
I voted no. Trolling it would be very stupid, immature and non-productive, and invading with our maps and redistricting knowledge would be kind of pointless due to how bland that place is. No one would care if we started discussing redistricting maps or the type of stuff this forum excels at anyway. That place isn't worth any time.
116  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Is living in an area with almost no opposing political views unhealthy? on: April 08, 2015, 11:45:25 pm
Like most normal human beings, I don't talk to strangers or acquaintances or people I run into about politics. I don't even really talk to my friends about politics, beyond making fun of Republicans for being dumb or whatever. Having protracted political debates or discussions in the real world face to face with a real person is almost always awkward and uncomfortable for both parties so I try to avoid that.

Ah but that's basically what I'm referring to. Remember too, Michele Bachmann was from this state in Congress for 8 years.
117  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Update XXII: Cleaning Up the Meat at [redacted]. on: April 08, 2015, 10:48:22 am
Honestly the extremely generic name of that forum is what makes me have no doubt that's Bushie. Bushie is exactly the type who when looking for a new political forum would simply google "political forum" and go to the first hit.
118  Forum Community / Forum Community / Einzige or jmfcst on: April 08, 2015, 10:08:04 am
jmfcst of course.
119  General Politics / Individual Politics / Is living in an area with almost no opposing political views unhealthy? on: April 08, 2015, 09:54:06 am
Such as liberals who live in 85-90% Obama areas or conservatives who live in ultra-conservative exurban areas and thus basically just assume everyone around them has the same views they do...and is usually correct. And thus such people end up with no exposure to dissenting views or different opinions.

I say no though, because I like my 86+% Obama precinct and take comfort in knowing how unlikely it is any of my neighbors are anti-gay or teabagger idiots.
120  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Kansas passes law banning food stamp receipients from pools, movie theaters on: April 08, 2015, 12:36:36 am
A great point made by barfbag/Derek of all people (broken clocks and all that) is that food stamps are actually some of the most efficient government spending, the money is immediately put back in the economy and grocery stores and the agricultural sector are important economic bedrocks. Cutting and restricting food stamps hurts a lot more people than just the recipients, and what's being done here isn't even going to save the state money. So yes, it is very much like drug testing welfare recipients, in addition to being insulting and dehumanizing it doesn't save the state any money or accomplish anything productive.

Also Naso's posts are having me thanking God krazen isn't around now, I can only imagine how nausea-inducing his posts would be.
121  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Ralph Nader on: April 07, 2015, 07:50:53 pm
My opinion is well know. Put simply see IceSpear and National Progressive.
122  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of white liberals on: April 07, 2015, 12:17:28 pm
Also more proof white liberals are far less racist than most whites: voting for Barack Obama
123  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of white liberals on: April 07, 2015, 11:34:15 am
Um for the south go compare the white liberal parts of Atlanta to the ultra-right wing Atlanta suburbs. Which are whiter?

Freedom Fighters of course. Most black people are awful, but black conservatives are great. What's quite funny is how people like OC like to claim black conservatives are the most racist people in America, even though they usually live in heavily minority areas.
FTFY

David Duke could have posted the same thing you did with 1 or 2 changes. Please look in the mirror.

It's mostly in response to people like krazen (even though he's temp banned now.)
124  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of white liberals on: April 07, 2015, 11:22:33 am
I find the assertion in the OP that white liberals live in areas with high minority concentrations amusing. Are you talking about when the yuppies move into an area, or when they've lived there for awhile? Because the latter pretty much always results with the liberals having more or less evicted the people who have always lived in an area from their new, hipster enclaves.

That's right, after all places like Williamsburg/Park Slope and San Francisco just keep getting whiter and whiter. Roll Eyes

Also where I live:

Quote
Census race groups consist of Caucasians (51.3%), Hispanics (Latinos) (20%), African Americans (19.8%), Native Americans (1.8%), Asian Americans (3.9%), and other (0.2%) (who are largely Somali in origin).
125  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Kansas passes law banning food stamp receipients from pools, movie theaters on: April 07, 2015, 11:01:25 am
So in other words Kansas is going to spend MORE money on welfare services, since enforcing something that requires this level of micromanagement isn't going to be cheap.
