anyone been looking at the "abuse in the magic the gathering community" situation going on?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LBjnjpkfLZo this is the video of a mtg user (The Quartering?)that seemed reasonable in the past and had a lot of trouble for calling out a few ppl. cant vouch for the content but maybe a few pointers. his main channel was flagged down apparently.
Tim talked to someone last night about the issue
ah on bearings stream
yeah, its at about 1:50
ok thanks, ive actually been watching it too, i was just wondering if anyone else was
I'll admit I'm not in the know who everyone is so be that as it may
didint know about tim bieng on stream talking about it, i only follow tim's youtube channel
that quartering guy apparently had a quarrel with some queer or trans or whatever cosplay person and was ... showered with love and disinvited from mtg events. and he helped exposing those people
im not quite into the topic just watching it now too
no they wernt queer or trans, they were born female cosplayer
i looked that guy up because i knew he was savy on mtg and saw the drama and his flagged down channel...
yes, i was vague this entire outrage stuff is all a big blurr to me im sorry hehe
though his critisism of her was due to the general relationship cosplayers like her have with people by creating a fanbase and then patreon and the kind of rewards they offer
its really evolved since then though
I like Tim Pool 😃
Hi fellow Beanies
I think we could go by that, tim was wondering what to call the community
Oh god no...
One sign of a community going mainstream is its lead giving the community a nickname...
also, a manifesto
Heres a good one guys. Lets call ourselves "beaners" get it? Beause of the beanies?
So if I saw you in public I'd be like "Whats up beaner" and motion for a high five
Oh god no
The beaners will show you the way.
I think the best story is how the icon is Tim's Benie
I live in California.
Alt right icon TIM POOL names his fans "beaners" in reference to the racial slur; why we are outraged

one ongoing news story from my end is the border arbitration decision between Slovenia & Croatia made at The Haag court last year and have gone live since 28th of December 2017. https://pcacases.com/web/view/3
From the lighter side... some idiots in california started an apartment fire trying to kill a wolf spider.
a wolf spider: you can identify it by its mark on the back part of the spider, it looks like uwu
Apparantly somebody tried to kill your President in November
Plot to kill Trump foiled - Utah Man Charged...
Indictment Document on Politico
to be fair, a wolf spider is not exactly the nicest spider. but that is talking kill it with fire too literally
This google lawsuit is going to be something else: https://twitter.com/farleftwatch/status/950734086297006081
@grenade123 I always thought wolf spiders were terrifying but completely harmless if not beneficial.
@Howler4695 "harmless"? Maybe in the same sense as a pitbull? I.e., net effect of the average wolf spider is harmless to beneficial to humans. But if you piss one off....well, they're no longer harmless.
feel like this is a pretty counter-cultural thing worth mentioning because of his popularity http://www.pcgamer.com/382000-people-tune-in-to-watch-the-return-of-notoriously-toxic-lol-player/
nearly 400k people were watching someone stream a game he was banned from streaming for 2 years and his success happened in spite of all of the big companies in the industry trying to ignore him
@godskook But wolf spiders arent poisonous.
what wolf spiders are you talking about?
they certainly are not deadly but still cause swelling and pain.
Burning spider causes apartment fire in Redding - https://archive.is/4iS4k
eeyup... sounds like Redding... lol
*burning spider* 🕷 🔥 sounds dangerous hehe
I got a news article from Canada that will really tilt you guys
Guess some DMC memo leaked that basically shows that the Democrats look at illegal immigrants as nothing more than free votes. Didn't need a memo for that to be obvious but I guess others do
but what about Kanye 2020 🤔
so when politicians get so bad the celebrities win, instead of fixing the issue we just push more celebrities? :v
Oprah/Kanye 2020 perfect Dem ticket
I think they all saw Trump win and forgot that he at least had qualifications that gave him a sense of wtf is going on. Oprah just knows how to rile up middle aged women
^ and give away cars that the recipients still have to pay taxes for... because Dems love their taxes
I wonder if Oprah's Vice President will be Dr. Phil
I thought it would be Kanye? or is he running a R ticket?
I would guess Whoopi Goldberg.
Kanye is definitely running republican
he broke his mind control mid consert then they hospitalized him to reapply the shock treatment 😉
Sry about my ignorance but.. who's kanye?
Kanye West; some shitty rapper
not as shitty as most but thats not saying much
How would a rapper be concidered for President? 😂
still better than a talk show host
You have to think of the progressive stack
Oprah is black... AND a woman
She also has a life story that sells
Dems are all over that kind of shit
She wont make it into serious discussion either way
I agree, it would assure Trump an easy win
But its not like dems have many choices
The dems dont have any platform besides "we're not themmm!!!!!"
They are overplaying their cards to exaustion
But their way of thinking sells well in Europe. I'm yet to find a Trump supporter in my country
Idk how it will play out in the US. Having celebs, media and IT companies should give them the win if they play it well
Luckly they don't...
Think about the Urban to rural ratios of western europe and think of the types of governments that hold them
The frustrating thing in the US is that the Dems *can* win, but they're bought out and paid for by the same monied interest groups and lobbyists that many on the right are in the pocket of. So, in essence, they're basically mirrors of each other.
They're completely strongarming at this point
they could only barely win Alabama after incessantly calling the republican candidate a pedophile
An alleged pedophile, no less.
Yeah it was so desperate of them. I have no clue why they didn't talk about the stuff that was actually true about him like his stupid evangelo-con beliefs
In fact I have no clue why the dems dont bother talking about ANYTHING thats objectively true about whoever they feel like smearing
Even in terms of just stating what they (should) be for, such as single-payer healthcare and such. While I don't agree with him on everything, there is a reason Bernie is the most popular politician in the US right now.
I still think Trump should have offered Sanders a spot in his cabinet.
He'd have instantly and horribly crashed the entirety of the media narrative against him
Bernie seems like a well meaning dude but his policies just wouldn't worj
Like, I wish the Dems would go back into Trump's twitter history and point out the... I think it was *five* times Trump praised single-payer healthcare? They could actually corner him into a position to actually maybe get it done, or make him out to be a liar about that, but in order to do that they themselves would want to have single-payer healthcare, as well.
He says he supports it but not Obamacare. Dems won’t budge on the Obamacare issue.
Obamacare is an abominable piece of legislation
At the same time I do agree with the goal of single-payer healthcare
With the option for people that want private insurance to do so, without being required to pay tax for SPH.
I don't think Obamacare even is single-payer, at least not in the same way that it single-payer exists in every other modern western nation.
No, it isn't.
Or even any kind of socialized healthcare, for that matter.
Yeah, we have medicare, but that only applies to certain people, if I remember.
I don't make enough money to afford healthcare in the US, myself, but at least now I'm no longer in danger of being fined for not being able to afford it. lol
"Can't afford healthcare? We'll just fine you and make you pay us money that you don't have."
Here's to hoping I don't get seriously ill or have a serious accident, or else I'll get slapped with a medical bill I'll never be able to pay off. lol
Sorry, didn't mean for that to turn into the mini rant that it did.

Welcome to 1984?
(I didn't think this belonged in Breaking News so I'm posting it here. let me know if this is better in Tech)
I’m not surprised about this at all. Plus isn’t it pretty old news?
I think the functionality hit today? the DC article is posted as today at least
They been skewing for a long time though
I switched off google after running some searches in DDG and Google side by side a few months back
I use bing
It's pretty centrist and I like the rewards
I switched about six months ago because of the fact checking and doctored search results but it’s good that they are bringing it up again.
I use DuckDuckGo
Ditched most of google besides youtube.
I'm still figuring out what I like to use and not, but have overall cut out pretty much anything google related except for YouTube and Hangouts.
I don't even use Facebook/Twitter.
Facebook I deleted a while back. Have twitter still but for non political stuff.
any stories in detroit?
going to be there on the 13-15
Same... I still use Google Docs. Haven't found a good alternative for it (yeah, there is Office online, but Google's is better IMHO). Stopped using Facebook and Messenger last year. I don't post to Twitter, I only read sometimes. Can't dump Whatsapp yet, just too many people use that.
Haven't actually deleted Facebook yet, because I need still need it to logon to some sites. 😕
What happens in detroit really?
Never got a Twitter, stopped using Facebook basically once I was out of highschool. Really didn't see the point in it anymore
Its just despair there
I mean, I've heard they have been trying to reform it.
Reform it how? and I am sure the time to reform it was ages ago.
Building up the good sections and letting the bad sections just do their thing?
Won't be reformed so long as Dems are in charge there. Maybe when infastructure talks happen it will fix things but who knows?
Just like every other poor place they are gentrifying.
It's happening in downtown Bridgeport here in CT.
entire neighborhoods are torn down cause they're abandaoned
Hmm, I heard that Detroit has some of the strictest Gun Control
No idea to what extent
Built a big ass bass pro shop, put in a Chipotle and Starbucks right there in the middle of a rundown part of town
Yeah, not that it helps any.
Now they are putting in a hotel and bowling alley
I mean, if there is one thing I dont have but I will relentlessly support, its the right to bear arms.
Also yes, demolishing long abandoned buildings does help with crime a bit.
Or just making the place less of a shithole. People there probably feel abandoned as well.
Turns out criminals don't like doing business in open lots where everyone can see as mucb
Now, if only we could solve the homeless issue...
*and the poverty*
If only they could solve the local job market
Only giving welfare to people who work is a great start. (not that I like the idea of welfare really)
They have factories there? Or is it used to?
Used to be a big factory area
Then all the facotries left
Last I heard they had car factories there.
most of the large industry left in the 70's
Leaving cause of what? Dem regulations or taxes?
Yeah so they need to make new jobs.
Automation I think
Well, on top of that, those jobs are also becoming more and more automated.
Didn't need the line workers
Could get more cars out of the factories they had
Probably also moved to a cheaper state too
Basically just the market changed
So basically, no jobs in the area
southern states offer great insentives for automakers, so a lot of them moved there
Well, it made a vicious circle. Everyone became unemployed in a short amount of time, then before any new business really moved in the crime had risen I think making it not exactly hospitiable to new businesses.
The people who could afford to move away and wanted to did.
same story for most the midwest
So the only people left we're too poor or too stubborn to leave.
Story of a lot of factory towns
What the local mayorship is doing aint helping much. Last I heard, they wanted to ban bulletproof glass.
Heck, similar story to what happened to bridgeport here.
hence the name for the region, The Rust Belt
Wonder if Camden NJ had a similar story or.if it was just always a dangerous place.
kinda simular, except less industry
more on the side of rapid urbanization
Same thing is happening to coal towns now
Has been happening to mining town for all of history really
since the end of the second world war
Mine runs out, everyone peaces
But coal is more the market dries up
How bout the coal mining jobs coming back? I thought that was one of the things Trump wanted to fix?
`woo coal industry`
Will help for a bit but it's probably temporary until the next ban happens.
He declared global warming fake news and took a victory on that promise I think
"I have pulled out of the Paris Accords, I have saved the coal industry. Job down."
"now if only I had pulled out of Paris Accord...."
Well, the Paris Accord was definately not helping against GW.
And the US was actually putting more of an effort into it more than other countries were.
And who was keeping track?
Of all the money?
largest alterinative energy producer
Or if the countries were actually using them for their intended purposes? Do we just take their word for it?
I don't really care about them tbh, and GW alarmist hurt it worst than denyists I think.
With coal it's not just about global warming, coal power plants produce a shitload of toxic byproducts
Like, making sure some of the money didn't just... disappear?
Coal just in general has been on the way out for a while
We need more nuclear plants.
oil is heading that way too
People not happy with regulation around it? Or that people can get it cheaper overseas?
Like what caused the US coal mines to shut down in the first place?
@CreativeRealms if they were more commercially viable we would be building them
And well, if they had some low risk areas to construct them
They are powerful yes, but one mistake can screw over alot
When oil prices slowly increase they would be more appealing to investors
Not that we dont trust Nuclear, more like we dont trust people to keep it in check
Not to mention that it can be used for war as well
Nuclear reactors in the US are very safe
wind and solar are easy to setup, easy to invest in. nuke power is always on the table too
Yeah they are really safe.
That's part of their cost though
expensive to run
Less pollution though.
@ping Nuclear reactors anywhere are very safe. The only major nuclear accidents in history were flukes or design flaws that have been fixed in newer plants
That said, the second biggest disaster since cernnobyle resulted in no deaths related to radiation. At least that was the numbers of few months ago
You could argue birth defects
Some will argue that the damage to the environment is more important
