And truthfully, they're the approximation of someone else's post count.

That's where y'all come in. I feel like I hang out here too much and this forum has fucked up my head. So only logical solution is to fuck up the forums head back.

Not for nothing, I do appreciate you letting us know in advance.  I'll go make sure everything is in working order.

Ok, everything seems to be in working order....


We need corporate regulations because, given the checks and balances in most first world countries, corporations are a at least as likely a source of repression as the government is in these places. And not just repression of their employees either. Consider the recent restrictions imposed by many popular online social platforms. In December, Tumblr abruptly deleted a third of their content and kicked out thousands of longtime users for no reason other than that they suddenly decided that they didn't like their content. That sort of thing should be illegal. We need additional corporate legislation to restore people's ability to express themselves.


I would personally prefer to see the check on corporate power come from employees and consumers.  Without the government holding them back unions are quite capable of representing employees, consumers are still lacking the sort of organizations that can effectively negotiate with corporate suppliers.

Just by looking, I'd say one of those gummy bears has "additives".

Man, I should really get that published.


It is like having a smoke with Ben Shapiro and Jordan Peterson's incel lovechild.

That's just... poetry.

Someone in r/occult today was asking what is the best way to get the attention of Eris. So, were likely all doomed.

Throw a party; don't invite her.

I mean, what benefit is gained by putting shoe polish on your fucking face?  None.  And they do it anyfuckingway, then they run off to a life of PUBLIC SCRUTINY.  Because humans.

You know who forms a large majority of people who never thought that blackface and sexual assault are acceptable?

Women of color.

New rule: any politician removed from office for being a terrible person is to be replaced by a minority woman.

I can answer that.

Virginia, in the news:

Governor Northam (D):  Pic in blackface.  Unclear if it was him or he was somehow involved with it.  Pic came to light after Northam defended a woman's right to choose.
Lieutenant Governor Fairfax (D):   Weird sexual abuse allegations, not backed up, AG Herring says he has to go (on accusations alone). THEN:
Attorney General Herring (D):  Immediately outed for himself wearing blackface.  Fuck's sake, he's only 6 years older than me and NOBODY in the 80s thought that was okay.
Speaker Cox (R):  Smiling like the cat that ate the canary.  Only there are now rumblings about HIM.
There is no 5th in line for governor.  At that point, the republican state congress selects the new governor.

Not sure if you know, but it gets weirder.  The only reason Cox is the speaker is because the GOP-let legislature voted for him.

The only reason the legislature is GOP-led is because of the midterms, with a very tight single race putting them in the majority.

How tight was the race?  It was declared a tie, and the winner was chosen by... flipping a coin1.

So if the Virginia Shame Cascade happens, the only reason the new Govenor will be Republican is purely due to random chance.

1Technically, it was "drawing lots", but since it's a 50/50 outcome, a coinflip has a better ring to it.
