Aneristic Illusions / Re: EU Referendum 23rd June: In or Out?

I've just watched some grinning pimply youth on the news channel telling me how much better off we will be trading with Ghana than with the European Union which according to another wunderkind is a failed and diminishing continent.

Cain, you are very lucky - I don't drink; what the hell am I supposed to do.   :horrormirth:

Respect to Chuck Tingle, whoever they are. The stories are not half bad for tongue in the cheek stuff according to my partner. She was telling me about the shitfest around "Chuck" being nominated for the Hugo's, which meant a friend of hers who was expected to be nominated missed out.

Whoever they are they are a pretty interesting phenomenon

Brexit is poisonous - and we are going to spread it worldwide like some sort of political ebola.

Farage, by contrast, has been acting like a complete twat all night.

Moreso than usual, I mean.  Completely insufferable

Yeah, and I loved the bit when he declared that this revolution had been achieved without a shot being fired. My chin hit the floor. Can we say tasteless?
Also - the closeness of the result seems as if it is within the bounds of the postal votes - most of which were registered before Jo Cox was assassinated.

Keith Vaz was on the verge of tears, poor man is shell-shocked. I know how he feels.

Yep. Looks like we are rapidly closing in on a moment in history where you have the perfect mindset and skill set to be one of the men of the moment. Kudos on your course choices - unless you really did want a quiet life, of course. Lets just hope that the pen really is more powerful than the sword . . . its certainly the best tool for twitting the growing armies of the trollosphere.

I am glad I am an old woman. I probably won't live long enough to see the worst excesses of the proletarian revolution that the smarmy pig-fucker has visited on us, but I am kinda sorry for my kids and grandkids. Oh, and you guys, too  :wink:. It is fascinating, in a grotesque way, to watch the "banality of evil" start to crawl across europe's face.

again

What a shame that Hannah Arend didn't live to see this. We are living in a social scientist's worst nightmare and wet-dream, watching helplessly [probably] as history repeats itself.

I don't think we can exactly tie this to the Leave campaign, except in the most general way, that their bullshit scare tactics give minor credence to the far-right's bullshit scare tactics which may have fed into this guy's thinking.

As Lenin McCarthy's link shows, the guy was subscribed to Neo-Nazi and South African white supremacist publications since the 1990s, both of which have highly negative views of the EU.  Even if Leave were running a completely sensible campaign, this probably would've happened.


When asked to confirm his name in court this morning he said "Death to traitors, freedom for Britain". If the temperature of political debate in this country becomes any more febrile we may well spontaneously combust.

FWIW when I read that I heard the voice of the TGRR I heard back in the day when I first fell in love with your writing.

That is the best thing you have ever written (/personal_opinion)

Cainad complains:

The doc diagnosed typical hyperthyroidism, which explains very clearly why I lost 20 pounds in three months and my resting heart rate was over 100. So for now I'm Grabbin' Pillz.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little pissed. I was in the best physical shape of my life 6 months ago, and now I can barely do a push-up without feeling like I'm dying.

Anyone got advice for getting fat?

Hypothyroidism. Works like a charm!

More seriously, once they get your thyroid levels re-balanced your weight should sort itself out.

Look, Fem-reptoids have needs too, you judging fucks.


Actually, I'm not certain that these are for a female audience. Could someone send a copy to Roger so we can find out? It's clearly in the interests of science.

Women are non-falsifiable, and therefore science does not apply to them.

Are CramOphelias non-falsifiable though?
