Aneristic Illusions / Re: UNLIMITED Arizona Hilarity thread

The only thing tethering me to reality is the fact that I spent 3 years in Tucson myself, therefore poisoning the pit of my being with its weirdness and ruining it for Sheriff Joe. I'm damaged goods to his bunch, sure, but I'm still buried under five tons of them.

As a person who is North of Casa Grande, I would love nothing more than to object to Roger's characterization of this half of the state.

But I can't, because he is right.

Everyone up here is awful. Even our small business owners are awful. Everyone. Including me. Just rotten and evil from the very deepest point of the soul.

Roger: feel better. And by 'better' I do not mean to imply 'poop more rainbows.'

Just don't take Wellbutrin. I tried that once and it made me forget how to fucking talk.

Oh boy.

How the holy fuck do you listen to all of those?

So much better than talk radio during a 45-minute commute to work. Plus, there are no traffic reports so sometimes I hit a wreck and get to listen to 2 episodes.

I think it's great, because it's from the UK, and a UK-centric POV. I especially like the "Ask an American" segment.

Of course, you could take my paranoid uncle's position that all legal tender is, in fact, a measurement of debt (as every bill is effectively an IOU from the government -- gold standard or not). We buy and sell goods and services with this debt, and we all accept it and expect each other to accept it based on our mutual agreement that the government can, ultimately, back up this debt.

So, your $35 CD player is a physical item with inherent positive value. You have obtained it in return for giving the store a negative currency amounting to $-35. The store accepted this "debt" because it has faith that it will be able to pass this "debt" on to its vendors or its employees, in return for their goods or services which will offset the value of the CD player they just gave you (and so on). Ultimately, if you hoard currency, you are owed the value of that currency/debt by the government which is why bankers have billions, and We the God Damn People had to bail them out. We never made that deal, it was written into the conspiracy we call a financial system from the very beginning, and now Obama won't even let me buy incandescent light bulbs.

Sorry, where were we?

Do you mean to imply that I am on drugs?

Either you're on drugs or you're kinda dumb. Pick your favorite!

:D

STOP DOING THIS SHIT.

This is the lengths they go to for a decent MAGAZINE COVER. Our invasion plans are on hold.

Google says he used accelerant in that shot for added DRAMA.

Whatever keeps the aliens afraid.

The Bugle, featuring John Oliver and some other British guy.

Just got the news that my nephew has a greater than 70% chance of having bone cancer in his knee. 14 years old. Shit.

That there is a raw deal. :(

Aye.

I looked up osteosarcoma, looking for evidence that surely there's got to be some good news for the kid.

Nope.

5-year survival rate, in the best case scenario, can reach as high as 70%-80%. No data published on 10-year survival rates.

I can see that argument. But it isn't all bad. I have said elsewhere that recognizing one's privilege is no excuse not to capitalize on it (in some cases). I will always be privileged in some sense and unprivileged in another sense. I have a brother who was never any less privileged than I was, but he has done nothing useful in his life despite that privilege. So it isn't like privilege is all that went into it.

Fuck's sake. That's awful, Vex.

Yeah, I don't know... living 1,200 miles away doesn't help.
