Or Kill Me / Re: The left and the right
« on: Yesterday at 12:07:50 am »
While on another forum I frequent I came across a topic from a poster who was confused about what constituted the "left" and the " right politically, as he had seen contradictory explanations. Inspired by that I came up with a handy chart and posted it as a response. I'd like to repost it here too:

The Right is about:

*regressive abrahamic superstition
*pathological obsession with money and power
*being a shill for polluters and robber barons
*difficulty getting a job due to lack of skills that can't be done better and cheaper by a machine
*white supremicism
*proudly ignorant backwoods hicks
*a bizarrely narrow view of what kind of relationships are acceptable
*bullshit degrees in divinity
*fear and hatred of science
*the racist, sectarian, nationalistic, cultural chauvinist, sexist, homophobic, militant, and world dominating aspects of Naziism

The Left is about:

*fatuous new-age superstition
*insufferably saccharine and/or emo obsession with feelings and identity
*being a pipe-dreaming hippie
*difficulty getting a job due to lack of skills that are useful
*refusal to integrate/assimilate
*pseudointellectuals
*a bizarrely narrow view of what constitutes consent
*bullshit degrees in the humanities
*fear and hatred of technology
*the eugenic, and scientifically unethical aspects of Naziism

What the fuck? CUT!

YOU come to ME begging for a chance at fame and fortune, and you give me this mainstream, moderate, bourgeoisie B-List bullshit? Being in the middle is the equivalent of not caring.

Having the whole world hate you makes you a Super Villain that the masses can cherish. Having the whole world hate you because you won't take a side in the fight against evil makes you a FUCKING HIPSTER CUNT-STAIN.

Oh, I've sided with the left, but only because they're the lesser of two evils. Like, they're both shit but the Democrats and the left are like stepping in dog shit whereas the right and the Republicans are like drowning in a spetic tank. One is clearly preferable to the other but neither are something I want.

Why the hell are they still on about Hillary anyway? She lost the election (sort of), she's no longer relevant.

The Hillbility- Set in a world that is a weird mashup of medieval/renaissance Eurpoe and backwoods America, the story focuses on two feuding families of noblemen who are also hillbillies. Because they're noblemen AND hillbillies the feud is extra bitter and the characters are extra inbred

EDIT:
Another idea:

Gold Goo- An alchemist trying to create the philosopher's stone accidentally has his creation get out of control; starting with the lab it begins transmuting everything that it, or the gold created by it, touches into an ever growing lake of liquid gold

Do you guys ever have dreams that feel like you have had them before? Like returning to those dream-places feels familiar. .

During the dream of after waking up.

If after then  yeah, I just had one. In the recurring dream I'm trying to navigate a fantastically enormous and confusing house to find one specific room and invariably get lost and can't find it. Usually the house in the dream is owned by my rich aunt and uncle, but this time it was owned by my one cousin on the other side of the family who in real life lives in a fantastically small apartment.

There was one a month or so ago where there was a feeling of familiarity in the dream. I think this one was a mashup of several different seashore houses we've rented over the years appended onto aspects of the same aunt and uncle's real house

Xmas special: the Republican party is deliberately polluting the Earth in an attempt to melt the polar ice caps because the conservative Christians hate Santa Claus for taking focus off of Jesus and therefore want to sink Santa's workshop

Another idea:
A guy cheats at a hands-on-a-car competition by using superglue

Transhumanism is the only way to resolve the abortion debate. When gestation can be separated and a pregnancy occur seperate to the body there can be an anti abortion pro-choice movement. Granted the child would not have parents, but it can pull itself up by the bootstraps or whatever.

This is something I too have thought of and very much want to see. I want to see once and for all whether this realli is about bodily autonomy. Because I'm wagering it isn't.

Another way to copypaste yourself into the future would be to record your whole childhood, clone yourself, and hire a bunch of actors to reproduce your reality tunnel until whatever age you wanna do the timewarp. Chaos and randomness would probably screw it up, but that has an additional benefit of not breaking the clock to figure out what's inside.

Working on that one too. That's part of the reason why I have a hoarding problem; all this crap points to what I was doing at different times.

Wait.  What?

" bizarrely narrow view of what constitutes consent"

Technically can't have had any alcohol, even if it's not enough to get drunk, which rules out most of dates.

Besides, it's not a motor vehicle, nobody's gonna crash their bed into a bunch of pedestrians.

I dreamed that I was in jail and nobody would tell me what for. I think it was a metaphor for the uselessly vague negative feedback I get at work.

And also the jail in the dream was a minimum security rich people jail, so it was actually better than how I live in real life.

EDIT:
Like, I remember thinking "at least I'm not at work"

Something that starts as a fantasy novel with magic and shit, but magic turns out to be advanced nanotechnology so it ends as a hard scifi.

Probably not original, but that's what I get for being illiterate prick.

This is basically the premise of Mogworld except instead of nanotechnology it turns out that they're in the matrix

Mockumemtary about a researcher who, disappointed with the arbitrary placement of the date of Christmas, is using "reverse astrology" to determine the true birthdate of Jesus (determining his date of birth by extrapolating backwards from his known fate and birthplace). Ancient Persian astrology is used where possible as that is what the Magi would have used. This could also be played straight and made into a documentary on the History channel or H2, as those networks seem to be mostly speculative fiction these days.
