51  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: I went to church in a suburb today on: December 14, 2014, 09:13:42 pm
So I went there again today. I have to say I'm quite happy that I did because despite being technically in a suburb this service was TOTAL SJW to the max. The sermon series for Advent is about reconciliation, and the speaker (who was actually the band leader) opted to talk about reconciliation in race, and talked about Michael Brown and the protests, brought up the CIA memos about torture and how people might try to justify such violence because of violence against us in 9/11 and at one point said "There are five things about me that give me great privilege: One is that I'm male, two is that I'm white, three is that I'm straight, fourth is that I'm American and fifth is that I'm Christian" and that most of those probably applied to most of us in the all white room. Remember when I brought up church sermons that resemble Upworthy videos? This was like PURE Upworthy and if I recorded it it could probably easily end up on there. "What This Worship Band Leader Has To Say May Be Hard To Hear For Those With Privilege, And That's Why You Need To"

Dammit if only Bushie would go to a place like this. Alas they probably don't exist in Oklahoma. Sad

Also in an odd mix, I bet all of DC Al Fine, Simfan and Nathan would be utterly horrified.

This would be as logical and beneficial as if Italy started having schooling fully in Latin. Dead languages are dead.

If Jesse Ventura stumps fo him, maybe.

No. No one cares about Ventura anymore. He was an unpopular Governor and now is generally regarded as a joke. The media gives him some attention from time to time but he has no real effect or sway.

To answer the question, likely no, he has no special appeal here that he'd lack nationwide.

Pretty sickening article. Italy clearly didn't do as much in shedding their dirty history after WWII as Germany did. Big time HP.

Ha, I voted GaussLaw = Jmfcst. I was right all along. Accolades and such.

Yeah seeing as how jmfcst is the only person on the Internet to be preachy about the Bible and accepting Jesus Christ after all.

I believe(d) that Link was Einzige. They were both pretentious douchebags who thought they were better than everyone, but were in fact pretty horrible.

Are those traits so rare it's impossible more than one person posting will display them?

Uh, thanks to his sore loser stint in 2009 Coleman has like a net 20 unfavorability rating now. He probably would've done about the same. Franken is actually liked and respected now, Coleman is a laughing stock.

The reason for the Leviticus prohibition on tattoos is because at the time the practice was almost exclusively associated with witchcraft.

One factor to consider is that it's probably easier to leave Eritrea.

Hey check out the Intel map now and Hawaii. I actually know some people who helped do that and am talking to them now. Smiley

Hell yeah! My favorite bar (a block from my house and Kansas City's oldest) is a Resistance stronghold!



All of Kansas City is a Resistance stronghold. It's long had a reputation as the most heavily Resistance major city in the US. For example, check out the scores here: https://plus.google.com/+Ingress/posts/MUJKqdwcH2j

Snowden is the best. He didn't harm anyone. Manning might've endangered people's lives and Assange is both a rapist and egotistical lunatic.

Yep, I've been able to average over 500k AP a week, that's basically what I was pulling during the summer.

And yeah BTRD I looked on the Intel map and I think I saw some portals in the international terminal at ATL (as in, the far side of the TSA checkpoint)

Basically every airport has portals in places like that. However theoretically anyone can access such places as long as they have a plane ticket. There are some crazy inaccessible portals. For example last year some guy who works at a nuclear facility in Nevada was able to put some portals not accessible to anyone besides him and his fellow workers to a very strategic use for the Resistance.

Also I'm not sure I'd call a bunch of nerds who post on a certain subreddit a "movement". That's like talking about Atlasian political parties as if they were real world political forces.

Then why the hell are you in Omaha?

It's not that difficult to destroy resonators, I've destroyed 41,635. It just is because you guys are low level and don't have access to good weapons. Once you hit L6 you start being able to do serious damage, and at L7 and L8 there's basically no portal you CAN'T destroy if well supplied, it just takes longer depending on how well defended it is. Leveling up to L8 is actually pretty easy if you are in a dense portal area and have teammates assisting you, some people have done it in marathon runs less than a day. Key is to find some portal dense area like a sculpture park and fill in and link up what you can. Probably fastest way to gain AP.

Oh and Flo: That doesn't surprise me, Florida Enlightened are notoriously weak just about everywhere except Jacksonville.

Update: I am now level two but I still haven't taken any portals because they're all really high level, is it supposed to take forever to capture a portal? Also in Winder there is apparently a portal at the funeral home, I think that's a questionable design decision

Oh there's plenty of those around here. Remember you don't have to go into the funeral home or even hang around it long to play. There's one near me that's a portal due to being a historic building on the national register of historic places, but you can easily hit parked on the street nearby or walking by on the sidewalk.

The only types of locations that'll get portals banned is if they're on private residential property, if they're in locations where they might cause potential interference with emergency services (you'll find fire stations as portals, but they were from the beginning. New ones aren't being accepted, and in fact they won't even accept things like statue and plaques near fire stations now), and if they're on the property of a non-university school and not accessible from off property. Portals in cemeteries are quite common and somewhat controversial too but it's clear Google isn't ever going to disallow them, despite a recent revelation that it's not only likely illegal to play Ingress in a cemetery in Tennessee, but that it's actually a felony (the law is obviously aimed at cemetery vandalism, but consists of a long list of prohibited activities, one of which is playing a "game or amusement" in one.)

This also means that yes, portals do exist on military bases and in some pretty restricted areas.
