Apple Talk / Re: PD experiences

I've been thinking lately about trying something like translating my posts into Russian, and then back into English. Not necessarily Russian. Russian just seems more topical.


I did something like this with the famed Uday Incident on Newsweek comments.  Funny thing:  The right-wingers loved it and liberals all wanted me to die of the mange, even though I was obviously parodying the right.

I quit after "The Tragic Death of Twin Brother Qusay", because there's no fucking way I could have topped that.

Did the right-wingers think you were with them, or did they get it, and thought it was funny? I've found that a lot of right-wingers assume that you are one of them, unless you tell them explicitly otherwise. It's part of their "we are a majority" delusion, I think.

I think sexual innuendo can be highly appreciated here, it just has to be clever... which is hard. Not making it 20% of your posting style is a good start. It shouldn't be something just randomly inserted as if to make a quota, or something.

I came rolling in here with a shtick I had been driving around on the internets on several other boards for a few months. It worked better as a late stage slow-troll tactic than it did just rolling in on a group with, though there were certain types of people and conversations where it can still work. Here, though, was mostly just people who had already heard that one.

I've been thinking lately about trying something like translating my posts into Russian, and then back into English. Not necessarily Russian. Russian just seems more topical.

Is this something you do (or did) as a member of a group? Is it your shtick, or is it something normally used in, like a gaggle, or a swarm?

Is this the FB discordianism I've heard of?

I always assumed the deep state was just the latest version of illuminati/freemasons/reptiles/aliens-run-the government

It always just sounded like "Checks + Balances = Fascism" to me.

It's funny because it's true.

Hey, Look! It's Trayvon/Zimmerman 2.0, but this time there are witnesses and maybe a video of the incident.

Direct subsidies to farmers are a bad idea. Not because farmers don't need help and not because they shouldn't be helped but because it gives them a bunch of money to invest in changing careers at the moment their chosen career looks like a bad idea.  A massive increase in food stamps would be just as good for farmers while also ensuring hungry people get fed

Prolly more like "Direct subsidies to giant agribusiness conglomerates are a bad Idea, because they will just use that money to invest in the private prison system."


or something.

We'll being probed by greys is a time honored conspiracy trope along with cattle abduction, sadly someone fixed the gas leak and the collective IQ went up and those conspiracies went out of fashion.

I'm not so sure about any IQ increase. Seems like the stupidity was just harnessed and redirected towards more actionable stupidity.

I'm just as stupid as ever.  I checked.


Just so long as it's actionable, I don't see the problem. No point in being stupid if you don't have realistic, clearly defined, stupid goals.

So now they're trying to do some kind of farmer relief bill, and give farmers $12Bn to help them get through this trade war?

And we just passed massive tax cuts, so we're going to have to borrow that money from China, whom we are now in a trade war with?

Have I got that right?

At work a while back, we had a "Taste of Harmony" potluck dinner. We were supposed to bring something "representative of our culture", so I bought a couple of cans of Easy Cheese, and Ritz crackers.

In true American form, I ate it all beforehand and had nothing to bring to the table, so I grabbed a tub of ice cream from the Dollar store on the way to work that day. It did a pretty good job of getting that Basil taste out of everybody's mouth, and was a smashing success!

:winning:

ETA: Also, this is how I learned that spray-on-cheese is Easy Cheese, not Cheese Whiz, which is pretty much the same thing, but in non-pressurized form.
