Right? Flamboyantly rich, elected on the basis that he represents a change from the old guard of politics, shady dealings accompany his electoral win, and now he's firing people who could potentially hold him accountable. Hmmmm.

Propaganda Depository / Re: Banning Nazis from PD

I assume you're referring to Roger?

I wouldn't say he's constantly whining, as this shit tends to only occur to a severe degree every 3-6 months or so. And to be fair he's stated his stance that's not changed every time and it's usually one I agree with. I see no reason to give the kinds of people we're talking about a platform, but most (rp-esque) don't even last a week anyway. I'm a judgemental little fucker so would probably be even harsher than what may be fair. I'm also sick of the terrible luck I get when I say hello to new meat, so that factors in to this too.

Or, Roger, as this is about you and, you know, kind of shitty to talk around you, if you can, just change the thing? I'd support this being banable. Faust does not seem averse. I forget if there's a fifth (maybe lmno?) Or whoever has kicked in the most cash to server shit. I for one am not averse to seeing less of these fuckers.

I didn't say constantly, I fucking said repeatedly. As in every 3-6 months for years on fucking end. And I suggested making being a racist turd, or at least posting racist turd sentiment, bannable years ago. I suggested it because integrity is important to me, so banning people for actual rules they knew about in advance and violated anyway would be a way of maintaining integrity while ALSO getting to ban racist turds. I also disagreed with it in principle, as IMO it was, at the time, counter to the general ethic of the forum to have a list of rules that basically came down to "agree with us or we ban you". I disagree with the general tactic of finding excuses to ban people we don't like. I think that every time there's a troll, instead of trolling them back until they have a wobbler and ragequit, someone "confirms" that they're from the same city, state, rainshadow, or geographical region as Poptard and they're banned. But times have changed, the board is not what it was, and if the modmins want to make being a neonazi a bannable offense, they fucking should have that conversation in PM and do it already, or don't. Without the recurring cycle of passive-aggressive whining.

I don't talk to Roger, and I rarely talk about him because he's rarely relevant to me. But this topic affects the whole board, so there's my two cents.

At this point, either the system of checks and balances works as it should and the Trump regime crumbles, or it doesn't work and we slide softly into a dictatorship.

I really want to try to make Elote, Mormon Style. I keep thinking about it ever since Cram posted that cartoon. It would be:
 
2 lbs frozen shredded hash brown potatoes
1 lb frozen corn
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
1 can condensed cream of chicken soup
1 bunch chopped green onions
1 lb shredded cheddar cheese

Mix together and spoon into baking pan. Top with:

1-1/2 cups crushed corn flakes
1/2 lb coteja cheese crumbles
Sprinkle of chile y limon

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Serve hot.

Also, I think I should try making that.

Weird, I totally thought Cram posted it, maybe because of my mental association of Cram with Mormon casseroles. I guess I should have gone back and checked.

I learned about the cone snail today and I am never going to the beach again.

FIFTY NANOGRAMS PER KILOGRAM HAS A 50% CHANCE OF KILLING YOU. A 220-POUND HUMAN HAS A 50% CHANCE OF SURVIVAL AGAINST JUST 5 MICROGRAMS OF CONOTOXIN. 

I DID SOME MATH. 

IT WOULD TAKE 7-9 MILLIGRAMS OF CONOTOXIN TO KILL A BLUE WHALE, THE HEAVIEST ANIMAL TO EVER LIVE.

My people.

Working on another PhD proposal.  God I hate these things.  It's like applying for a job and writing a high level paper, all rolled into one.  Oh, you only want 2500 words on my proposal, in addition to my entire life and work history.

Easily the worst thing about academia is all the fucking proposals and reports and grant applications. Seriously, why the fuck does a progress report need multiple revisions?

Suggestion:
Revise the signup rules page thing to include something like "If you're a nazi fuckwit, don't bother. It's boring and won't end well".

Saves any kind of discussion when the next brother nihil wanders in.

I once suggested making being a racist fuck a bannable offense, as in adding it to the rules, but he doesn't want to change the rules, he wants to spend year after year repeatedly whining about it not being a bannable offense and implying that it's somehow everyone else's fault, as if it isn't basically just him and Cain in charge at this point.

WHY THE ACTUAL FUCK IS SEPSIS THE RECURRING THEME OF 2017?

I have seen more sepsis references this year than in all prior years combined.

ISKCON has experienced a number of significant internal problems, the majority of which occurred from the late seventies onwards, and especially within the decade following Prabhupada's death.[50] ISKCON has also been scrutinised by some anti-cult movements.

Brainwashing cases[edit]
A brainwashing lawsuit filed by an Orange **skip**ISKCON. This document is ecclesiastical in nature

That's a big fucking yes.

Brainwashing ? but there is no brain. there is no brain. so where is question of washing your so called brain ? and if there is any brain at all. then ( fertile brain ) recall everything which you have thought or done on each second within`1 minute and prove it that there is brain`1st of all. then we will talk about washing your so called brain. prove it that there is brain ( after all its an open challenge )

but there is no brain so where is question of washing anything at all ? and there may stay thousands of counspiracies against us ( The Hare Krishnas ) but where is the fallacy in this Practical explanation ? you are just an failure. cuz you can neither recall anything nor point out any fallacy but still your only policy is to **give dog bad name and hang it** you are such an rascal pig. that is your position.

Christ, you are one boring chode.

I read it as a very dysfunctional relationship. The kind that always seems to be on fire.

Although, my guess is that these people are already on it.
