I've pretty much quit caffeine.

Cuck.

Excuse you, he has become Mormon like his hero, Evan McMuffin.

Mormons drink Koch Coke.

It's largely a health decision. I was drinking exorbitant amounts until about 3 weeks ago, but found that I was getting chest pains. I now have one less vice to kick. Tongue

Let's look at what I actually said.

...

You say anti-vax was once a left wing thing, but is now more associated with the right. I post some counter examples without ever saying it's a "left wing thing", and you run a freaking regression analysis to knock down a strawman. You're something else dude.



Fair enough, but you've made the argument before, so you can't blame people for misinterpreting your words in this particular thread:

Wait, WV and Mississippi are the only 2 states who are correct on an issue? Has hell frozen over?

This is a crunchy granola problem for the most part.

Granola cons are more likely to exist in the West than the South.
4  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Why are *so many* Libertarians so smug and annoying? on: Today at 09:43:22 am
Libertarians aren't really a thing anymore. They've mostly drifted into fascism.

Wow, quite the hot take.

I didn't realize advocating for individual liberty and equality meant that you want an authoritarian, government-rules-all nation where groups of people are superior to others.

The point of this take is not that the ideological tenets are directly related, but that those attracted to certain iterations of the philosophy are also attracted to certain aspects of fascism. I have my own theory of confluence between the two, though I'm on mobile, so I'm not in a good position to expound on it right now.

Sometimes politicians, the media, and schools talk about "binge drinking." Is it a legitimate issue or is it prohibition reborn?

Do you think this is 1994?

He's a fascist communist.
The proper term is a Strasserist.

I thought the proper term was Commie-Nazi

Communazi.

All high schools should be single sex high schools. Demise of America that this is not the case.

Pretty much only left-wing parents raise their children gender-neutral.

Is this untrue?
11  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Conservative CNN guest: the 2 things I believe in are 1st Amendment and boobs" on: September 17, 2017, 03:27:50 pm
Don't really get the big deal here. I get that using the word "boobs" on the air is probably against CNN's "Standards and Practices" guidelines or whatever, but it's not like this is some huge calamity. Some people are also acting like it's sexual harassment, but if a woman used the word "dick" or even "cock" in my vicinity I wouldn't really care.

It would still sound inappropriate on a "news" broadcast.

That basically describes everything on CNN.

Beside the point, but I will cede that perhaps something ought to be done.

14  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Can you listen to podcasts/conversations and still do work at the same time? on: September 16, 2017, 03:46:08 pm
I may have a podcast on at work, but if I'm particularly focused on a case, I may rewind what sound like crucial bits of the podcast since my mind's not there. If I'm doing homework, I will not have a podcast on, as I might be required to actually think and I don't want to process two semi-related data streams at once. Speaking of homework...

I doubt that girl was an alt rightist.

The alt right is a notorious sausage fest.
Laura Loomer rejects the alt-right label, but she works for POS closet alt-righter Gavin McInnes...

"Closet"?

17  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: How come we only see presidents hailing from a handful of states? on: September 16, 2017, 10:46:58 am
TBF ... most of Virginia's presidents were clustered (4 of the 1st 5) during a time when there were a lot fewer states and Virginia was one of the 3 or 4 most populous. Wilson was the most recent, and he wasn't living here when he was elected.
Atlas and Wikipedia both list Wilson's home state as New Jersey.

It's a common trope that Wilson was the first President from the South since... Zachary Taylor, as he was born and raised in Virginia. I believe he was born in the middle of the Civil War, if I'm not mistaken. That said, his academic and political career took place elsewhere. He still still very much a son of the South, however.

Thank you guys! I spent the early morning hours getting drunk with my friends. It's been a good day.

Are you finally 21!?

Yes sir.

Congrats! Cheesy

She seems more annoyed than scared or remorseful.




Is it bad I think she's hot?

Yes, because in this picture she appears cross-eyed.
24  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Anti-science views in the left on: September 14, 2017, 05:31:16 pm
Most people with views labeled "anti-science" are very much believers in science in the abstract, they just believe that the commonly accepted science is perverted by ideological biases, political agendas and/or corporate corruption.
It's a form of anti-intellectualism: the belief that those who society considers the experts can't be trusted.

So are scientists that push against the intellectual orthodoxy by default anti-intellectual? You know there are disagreements within the natural sciences, correct?
25  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Is Bernie derangement syndrome a thing on this forum? on: September 14, 2017, 05:28:12 pm
The types of people who usually come on forums like these hate popular things that are hyped up.

Oh, so that's how you can like Illinois so much! [Though this is the most perfect descriptor of me...quite scary]

The same. If you see someone state an idea, it's obviously a bad one, otherwise, why would they support it?
