Or Kill Me / Re: It's not Wrong when I do it

Relevant:  I just finally blocked Sam Sutler on Facebook.  He has gone from bog-standard hyper-atheist to repeating the newest version of the anti-semetic "blood libel" in a frenzy of insane lefty-ism.

Some people can't feel like they're a believer in something unless they find a reason to hate people.

That's some Truth, right there.

That caught my eye too.

I mean, it's always gotta be someone's fault, right?

So, basically, it's just one elaborate & huge No True Scotsman argument.

Well, yes. At least from some from what I've seen.

Many would like it if you'd take the "A" out.  "A" gets in the way of the histrionic posturing.

A:
Asexual?
Alaskan?

I'm going to assume it's one of those and refuse to hear any corrections.

"Allies", last time I heard.

A lot of them will get super butturt that you heard that and allowed such an idea to enter into your consciousness.

It's asexuals, not allies, how dare you ever allow yourself to think that it's allies, thinking that makes you a shitty ally, DIAF.

I hafta confess, i was guilty of this as recent as two days ago. A friend of mine had me over to RP. My friend is a registered libertarian, and his wife is a homeschooled Baptist Republican, and after one more Mexican joke than i was fully comfortable with, I busted out and called him a wop dego. Granted, i don't think he'll really hold it against me, but it does bother me that i went there.

Well, I assume you're talking about in person?

That's at least more earnest than the way Tumblr works, wherein people pull this shit so that they can get Internet high-fives from people who agree with them. The person being told off might as well not even be real (and sometimes they aren't; it's an insanely easy community to troll).

You'll only get one video today, since the wireless phone knocks my internet connection out, and I was 94% complete on the upload.  Thanks, wireless phone makers and Youtube's stupid upload system.  Oh no, a BitTorrent style upload is too good for the Masters Of The Internet at Google.  No, we'll make everyone do it the old fashioned way, a direct upload that, if the connection fails for even a quarter of a second, wastes the entire effort.

BitTorrent is for terrorists to pirate movies and tv shows; what legitimate need could any person have for such technology?

Cainad, I think Dishonored is broken.  I somehow got the Cleaner achievement (fight 5 enemies at once with none of them surviving) by climbing onto a roof and dropping a cannister of whale oil on a bunch of people.  I don't know what to call that, but a "fight" is definitely not on the top of the list.

Well, they obviously should have had their whale oil-proof uniforms on if they were going to be working around it. Legitimate win is legitimate.

Uuugh yeah standard Tumblr... that's even fairly tame and reasoned, relatively speaking.

"Survival mechanism" is a typical fallback, as if constantly posting "FUCK ALL CISHET PEOPLE" is somehow equivalent to protecting yourself from the kind of people who are a threat to them.

Because as we all know, black people protect themselves from skinheads by screaming "FUCK YOU, HONKEY" at random white people.

One time I saw myself in a mirror and realized that I could be pretty quickly pegged as a hipster by almost anyone on the street.

Cain, I just found your Dishonored playthrough. Looking forward to more.

Fuckin'

Really enjoyed the look into the historical context of the ideas that have filtered into Social Network Justice Asshat communities (is that a better term? Because it certainly seems like these communities spend a lot more time fighting within the sphere of social networks themselves than anywhere else).

That last bit brings up what I think I find most bothersome about these kinds of "activists." It's not that I feel threatened, or hurt more than feeling mildly put-out when they make sweeping negative generalizations about white heterosexual males. It's that there's a lot of people out there who don't give a fuck about social justice and will quite cheerfully leverage their power as a social majority to whip up antipathy for minorities in response to these statements.

Talking unnecessary shit about whites/men/heterosexuals isn't a threat to said whites/men/heteros. It's a threat to the people who don't realize how much worse things will get for them if they aren't going to be smart about their cause.

I want to go to there.

Vulcanology was something I briefly looked into for graduate education. I'd still like to do it someday.

I ACCIDENTALLY HIT "MARK ALL READ"

I am either blessed or cursed. I haven't had a nightmare since I was a little kid, and the extremely rare times I can remember my dreams, they are quite banal. Hardly any weird shit at all.

I kinda think you're an ax-murderer now. O.O

No, I've met Cainad, and he's more of a scalpel type.  Very precise fellow, not prone to the huge waste of energy involved in swinging an axe around.

Axes are for wood, after all.

People using the wrong tools is what's wrong with everything. You've got people using the wrong tools for the right jobs, and you've got even more people using the wrong tools for the wrong jobs.

No, no. It just won't do at all.

So you have to PAY to have the shit scared out of you?

Poor bastard.

Yeah, it's a terrible bother. All of my cold sweats have to be induced artificially.

Perish the thought. Everything just gets shunted into my waking mind so I can get decent sleep. Why would that ever make me want to murder axes?

Ohh gotcha.

Think of them as the Maginot Line of the cold war.

I do geographical work for a company that helps people determine if their dirt is full of poison, helps them extract poison from their dirt if it's there, and helps design systems that reduce the amount of bullshit that enters the environment.

I accidentally found out where the abandoned missile silos are on my first day. Turns out, there's a LOT of them.

We have dozens of Nike silos.  Some were sealed up or whatnot, some were just sort of de-weaponed and then forgotten.  Homeless people live in them now.

We sure were ready to get them just as dead as they got us, huh? :lulz:
