It's funny that The Lesser Poptard keeps talking as if he's beyond racism, then calls people nigger.
 
I haven't laughed this hard since I watched The Day the Clown Cried.

Yeah, it's a little tiny bit self-contradictory.  :lulz:

That's just it. Everyone is out of line. The punishment fetish is a literal fetish; a superstitious ritual that allows people who engage in it to comfort themselves with the belief that if they champion the punishment of the other guy, then they themselves will be safe from the wrath of the Enforcement gods for another day.

Point.  If the system is evil, then of course everyone will be targeted by it.  But who makes up the system?  The very people you describe.  It's like Mexica warriors ranting about how great it must be for captive warriors to be sacrificed.  Yet most of them had to be dragged to the altar.  It's FINE when it's happening to someone else, even if it means it will one day happen to YOU, because that day isn't today.  As far as you know.

Yeah, we're all participants, one way or another. I might be crazy, but I still believe that I can change things from another angle; not through sabotage, but through SCIENCE.

I'll probably die in ignominy, but hell, I get to touch human brains.

That is sincerely just...  :lulz: I wouldn't feel the desire to make fun of him if he wasn't such a HYPOCRITE. We all like to feel pretty sometimes.

You haven't seen the poopymouf pic.  :vom:

That is seriously. Just really something.  :lulz:

Successful lawyers make good money.

Most lawyers are not successful.

Nice.

Looking at the Intel map, it occurs to me that the reason Resistence keeps winning is because they simply have more people playing.  I wonder if it's a narrative choice: It fits in with the "brave humans fight the alien menace" story, whereas I feel like I'm playing the "bringing progress to humanity" story, where the Resistence are more like Neoreactionary luddites preventing mankind from advancing.


Then again, I may be reading too much into all this, and people choose Blue because it's a primary color.

In my observation, people do tend to gravitate toward blue, especially older players and players with more money, and I think it's exactly what you say; the romance of the brave defenders of humanity. The narrative of the Enlightenment seems to be less intuitively appealing for a lot of people; I've convinced several people go to green when their initial impulse was to go blue. Hot Cowboy is blue, which is completely what I would have predicted based on his age and socioeconomic status.

"Rugged individualism"? Humanity's last hope kind of tropes would seem to fit that.

I don't know about that; they seem mostly to be pretty cooperative and good at working together to accomplish goals. I think it has more to do with conservatism and holding off change, because the more financially stable a person is the more threatening change becomes.

Oh, and for Nigel...Here is the valiant white nationalist hero who preaches about "faggots" all day:

The Culture of Fear combined with the punishment fetish... it might not be fair, exactly, but he knew it was illegal when he did it so he deserves everything he gets, right? He deserves to be punished. And if he deserves to be punished, then logically speaking I don't.

Unless I step out of line. Of course.

We were BORN out of line.  We have been criminal since we were conceived.  The difference between you and I and those people on the bus is largely a matter of luck.

And since they're hunting us anyway, why not make their day a little slower?  Why not fuck up their lunch hour?  Why not ruin their weekend?  It ain't much, but it's better than going gracefully.  STOMP, CHEW, GRIN.

That's just it. Everyone is out of line. The punishment fetish is a literal fetish; a superstitious ritual that allows people who engage in it to comfort themselves with the belief that if they champion the punishment of the other guy, then they themselves will be safe from the wrath of the Enforcement gods for another day.

So basically at this point you're just using the forum as a self-promotion tool?

Note for self when more awake. When was the last time lawyers went on strike? Betting never.

How do you imagine lawyers going on strike would work? They aren't part of a union, they represent a wide diversity of interests, and a great many are self-employed. Who would they go on strike against, and for what purpose?

Camping was fun. I indulged in a number of mind-altering substances and stayed up until dawn. I'm almost back to normal now though, which is good because first day of school, squeee!!!

So freaking done with FB disco shit. It was liberating, refreshing really, to close the groups and just see friends in my feed again. Also much more time for PD.com, where people treat people right!

Seriously. It was fun for a bit and I did meet some cool people, but holy shit it's just too much of a clusterfuck and has too many people who seem to think hurting other people makes them cool.
