What sets this apart? Half the threads on this site don't seem to make much sense. Are the other apparently disjointed topics in some kind of code.

One of those stories where a small mom-and-pop business owner has to stand up to the corporate fatcats trying to muscle them out, except it's a sequel to "Psycho". The Norman Bates and the Bates Motel are threatened by a character based on serial killer H.H.Holmes, who is building a large murder hotel down the block from the Bates Motel which threatens to steal all of Norman's business.

It's true in a roundabout way. If they hadn't voted a crook into office there wouldn;t be all this talk of removing him.

Aneristic Illusions / The EU's trying to break the internet again

The European Union is voting soon on a number of measures that could seriously disrupt any web traffic going to, from, or through Europe. These measures were shot down before but they've been dredged back up. If you live in Europe please contact your member of the European Parliament to oppose them:

Under Article 11 -- the "link tax" -- online services are banned from allowing links to news services on their platforms unless they get a license to make links to the news; the rule does not define "news service" or "link," leaving 28 member states to make up their own definitions and leaving it to everyone else to comply with 28 different rules.

Under Article 13 -- the "censorship machines" -- anyone who allows users to communicate in public by posting audio, video, stills, code, or anything that might be copyrighted -- must send those posts to a copyright enforcement algorithm. The algorithm will compare it to all the known copyrighted works (anyone can add anything to the algorithm's database) and censor it if it seems to be a match.

Another idea:

Ed Gein is a Home Economics teacher

Expanded version of the above:

A college where all the professors are famous murderers. Ed Gein teaches fashion design. John Wayne Gacy teaches a course on comedy. H.H.Holmes teaches a course in hospitality management. Albert Fish teaches a course on culinary arts assisted by Jeffrey Dahmer....Adolph Hitler teaches painting....

I mean in some places all you need in order to qualify as a divinity is a commercial pilot's license.

I was just thinking about how Jackass might be seen as Dadaist art; They had a bungee toilet, a man flying a kite with his ass, and a little person tethered to a big fat guy diving into a river.

Annnnnnnnnnnnnnd Pathfinder 2.0 - which they SWORE would never happen - hits next month.  It is different enough that the two full size bookshelves of Pathfinder I have are not compatible.

In thst case screw them.

Agnosticism is intellectually lazy

Agnosticism makes sense because there are so many different religious systems. And a lot of them have really low standards. Throwing lightning bolts was one of the demonstrations back when I used to work at the science museum. Good old Nikola Tesla.

That's what I've been saying. It's all fearmongering and bullshit

It's not a troll because they really are that stupid

A woman who writes a far-right blog saying that trans people should kill themselves turns out, after needing some medical test for some reason for some reason or another, to be a biological male with androgen insensitivity syndrome. The disgnosing physician, who has seen the blog, also writes them a referral to Jack Kevorkian "as per your request" as a preface to giving them the news.

"Neitzsche say: 'When a desire to obtain tyrannical power has been awakened in the soul, even a very mediocre talent becomes an almost irresistible force.'"

"Neitzsche say: 'He who lives by fighting with an enemy has an interest in the preservation of the enemy's life.'"

"Neitzsche say: 'When a man roars with laughter he surpasses all the animals by his vulgarity.'"

"Neitzeche say: 'We sometimes remain faithful to a cause merely because its opponents never cease to be insipid.'"

"Neitzsche say: 'There are people who wish to make human life harder for no other reason than to be able afterwards to offer men their life-alleviating religiosity'"

"Neitzsche say: 'Whoever thinks much is unsuitable for a partisan; his thinking leads him too quickly beyond the party.'"

"Neitzsche say: 'The disciples of a martyr suffer more than the martyr.'"
