I find these kids utterly grating and cringeworthy (and frat boy fashion is also vile), but I can't help but feel that your vendetta here is more personal than anything.

Italian fascism died 70 years ago today. May it never return.

I had a friend/acquaintance in high school who was a "goth", I guess. He was pretty normal though, he just wore black and those chains and whatever. But he was a friendly, kind of shy guy. He was in my German class, so I hung out with him during class and we went on a school exchange trip to Germany during the summer for a few weeks. All in all a pretty decent guy.

I work in a high school. Goths don't really exist anymore. Neither the 80s Bauhaus/The Cure style ones or the early 2000s mall goths.

Plenty of good music came out of the former. The latter...less so.

Your sig also doubles as a great reaction to that.

The man himself leans FF, despite a few nasty and elitist tendencies (people forget, with all his 'western sensibilities' he still was a dictator).

His modern day adherents though are terrible, and Kemalism nowadays is a bankrupt and overly flogged dead horse of an idealogy.

Yes, the modern Turkish two-party system is especially awful.

Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives... you are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side here in this country of ours... You the mothers who sent their sons from far away countries wipe away your tears. Your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace. After having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well.

Plenty of arguments for both (I half-considered making this a multiple options poll Tongue), but his defense of Turkish independence after WWI and radical secular reforms make me vote for the former option. Also good to note his strident rejection of the Young Turk faction which carried out the Armenian Genocide, something which modern Turkey has sought to erase about him.

New Jersey is a top 5 state, let's not kid ourselves.

I don't get it...

It's a list of football teams, demonstrating that the more right-wing a town the crappier their teams.

Or more specifically, showing the interesting nugget that only one Premier League club is based in a Tory-held seat (Chelsea), along with one in a Lib Dem seat (Burnley)

FF. An integral part of the atmosphere of sports. They also go through drills, auditions, practices, etc.

Only really necessary in American sport, where the fans aren't allowed to make noise or be expressive on their own.
