2018-01-09 01:48:53 UTC

Ayy lmao

2018-01-09 02:14:31 UTC

anyone been looking at the "abuse in the magic the gathering community" situation going on?

2018-01-09 02:19:36 UTC

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.

2018-01-09 02:19:54 UTC
2018-01-09 02:19:58 UTC

Tim talked to someone last night about the issue

2018-01-09 02:21:32 UTC

ah on bearings stream

2018-01-09 02:21:40 UTC

yeah, its at about 1:50

2018-01-09 02:22:11 UTC

ok thanks, ive actually been watching it too, i was just wondering if anyone else was

2018-01-09 02:22:25 UTC

I'll admit I'm not in the know who everyone is so be that as it may

2018-01-09 02:22:36 UTC

didint know about tim bieng on stream talking about it, i only follow tim's youtube channel

2018-01-09 02:22:59 UTC

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

2018-01-09 02:23:04 UTC


2018-01-09 02:23:16 UTC

im not quite into the topic just watching it now too

2018-01-09 02:23:35 UTC

no they wernt queer or trans, they were born female cosplayer

2018-01-09 02:23:47 UTC

i looked that guy up because i knew he was savy on mtg and saw the drama and his flagged down channel...

2018-01-09 02:24:31 UTC

yes, i was vague this entire outrage stuff is all a big blurr to me im sorry hehe

2018-01-09 02:24:40 UTC

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

2018-01-09 02:24:52 UTC

its really evolved since then though

2018-01-09 02:30:48 UTC

Hi, all.

Hello Everybody

2018-01-09 03:05:30 UTC

Hi people

2018-01-09 03:07:19 UTC

Hi fellow Beanies

2018-01-09 03:09:11 UTC

I think we could go by that, tim was wondering what to call the community

2018-01-09 03:09:27 UTC

Oh god no...

2018-01-09 03:09:29 UTC

the beanhood

2018-01-09 03:09:40 UTC


2018-01-09 03:09:49 UTC

One sign of a community going mainstream is its lead giving the community a nickname...

2018-01-09 03:18:48 UTC

Heres a good one guys. Lets call ourselves "beaners" get it? Beause of the beanies?

2018-01-09 03:19:09 UTC

So if I saw you in public I'd be like "Whats up beaner" and motion for a high five

2018-01-09 03:19:17 UTC


2018-01-09 03:22:12 UTC


2018-01-09 03:31:08 UTC

Oh god no

Beanie Casting

2018-01-09 03:36:50 UTC

The beaners will show you the way.

2018-01-09 03:42:50 UTC

I think the best story is how the icon is Tim's Benie

Greeting everyone

2018-01-09 12:37:01 UTC

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

2018-01-09 12:51:40 UTC

From the lighter side... some idiots in california started an apartment fire trying to kill a wolf spider.

2018-01-09 13:06:15 UTC

a wolf spider: you can identify it by its mark on the back part of the spider, it looks like uwu

2018-01-09 13:20:25 UTC

Apparantly somebody tried to kill your President in November

Plot to kill Trump foiled - Utah Man Charged...

Indictment Document on Politico

2018-01-09 13:38:16 UTC

to be fair, a wolf spider is not exactly the nicest spider. but that is talking kill it with fire too literally

2018-01-09 14:34:37 UTC

This google lawsuit is going to be something else: https://twitter.com/farleftwatch/status/950734086297006081

2018-01-09 16:06:40 UTC

@grenade123 I always thought wolf spiders were terrifying but completely harmless if not beneficial.

2018-01-09 16:15:54 UTC

@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

2018-01-09 16:44:36 UTC

@godskook But wolf spiders arent poisonous.

2018-01-09 16:53:47 UTC

what wolf spiders are you talking about?

2018-01-09 16:55:31 UTC

they certainly are not deadly but still cause swelling and pain.

2018-01-09 17:00:22 UTC

Burning spider causes apartment fire in Redding - https://archive.is/4iS4k

2018-01-09 17:00:49 UTC

eeyup... sounds like Redding... lol

2018-01-09 17:01:19 UTC

*burning spider* ๐Ÿ•ท ๐Ÿ”ฅ sounds dangerous hehe

2018-01-09 17:10:18 UTC

I got a news article from Canada that will really tilt you guys

2018-01-09 20:40:14 UTC

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

2018-01-09 20:48:18 UTC

oprah 2020

2018-01-09 20:49:03 UTC

but what about Kanye 2020 ๐Ÿค”

2018-01-09 20:50:15 UTC

so when politicians get so bad the celebrities win, instead of fixing the issue we just push more celebrities? :v

2018-01-09 20:50:21 UTC


2018-01-09 20:50:55 UTC

Oprah/Kanye 2020 perfect Dem ticket

2018-01-09 20:51:09 UTC

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

2018-01-09 20:52:40 UTC

^ and give away cars that the recipients still have to pay taxes for... because Dems love their taxes

2018-01-09 20:53:05 UTC

I wonder if Oprah's Vice President will be Dr. Phil

2018-01-09 20:53:33 UTC

I thought it would be Kanye? or is he running a R ticket?

2018-01-09 20:53:47 UTC

I would guess Whoopi Goldberg.

2018-01-09 20:54:39 UTC

Kanye is definitely running republican

2018-01-09 20:56:10 UTC

he broke his mind control mid consert then they hospitalized him to reapply the shock treatment ๐Ÿ˜‰

2018-01-09 21:15:16 UTC

Sry about my ignorance but.. who's kanye?

2018-01-09 21:16:26 UTC

Kanye West; some shitty rapper

2018-01-09 21:16:39 UTC

not as shitty as most but thats not saying much

2018-01-09 21:37:38 UTC

How would a rapper be concidered for President? ๐Ÿ˜‚

2018-01-09 21:38:14 UTC

still better than a talk show host

2018-01-09 22:12:57 UTC

You have to think of the progressive stack

2018-01-09 22:13:12 UTC

Oprah is black... AND a woman

2018-01-09 22:13:32 UTC

She also has a life story that sells

2018-01-09 22:13:46 UTC

Dems are all over that kind of shit

2018-01-09 22:14:07 UTC

She wont make it into serious discussion either way

2018-01-09 22:14:35 UTC

I agree, it would assure Trump an easy win

2018-01-09 22:14:49 UTC

But its not like dems have many choices

2018-01-09 22:15:30 UTC

The dems dont have any platform besides "we're not themmm!!!!!"

2018-01-09 22:16:08 UTC

They are overplaying their cards to exaustion

2018-01-09 22:17:00 UTC

But their way of thinking sells well in Europe. I'm yet to find a Trump supporter in my country

2018-01-09 22:17:58 UTC

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

2018-01-09 22:18:21 UTC

Luckly they don't...

2018-01-09 22:22:04 UTC

Think about the Urban to rural ratios of western europe and think of the types of governments that hold them

2018-01-09 22:24:44 UTC

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.

2018-01-09 22:27:19 UTC

They're completely strongarming at this point

2018-01-09 22:28:06 UTC

they could only barely win Alabama after incessantly calling the republican candidate a pedophile

2018-01-09 22:28:55 UTC

An alleged pedophile, no less.

2018-01-09 22:30:18 UTC

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

2018-01-09 22:30:58 UTC

In fact I have no clue why the dems dont bother talking about ANYTHING thats objectively true about whoever they feel like smearing

2018-01-09 22:39:44 UTC

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.

2018-01-09 22:40:32 UTC

I still think Trump should have offered Sanders a spot in his cabinet.

2018-01-09 22:40:54 UTC

He'd have instantly and horribly crashed the entirety of the media narrative against him

2018-01-09 22:41:32 UTC


2018-01-09 22:42:39 UTC

Bernie seems like a well meaning dude but his policies just wouldn't worj

2018-01-09 22:42:53 UTC

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.

2018-01-09 22:43:20 UTC

Many don't.

2018-01-09 22:43:30 UTC

He says he supports it but not Obamacare. Dems wonโ€™t budge on the Obamacare issue.

2018-01-09 22:54:24 UTC

Obamacare is an abominable piece of legislation

2018-01-09 22:54:43 UTC

At the same time I do agree with the goal of single-payer healthcare

2018-01-09 22:55:01 UTC

With the option for people that want private insurance to do so, without being required to pay tax for SPH.

2018-01-09 22:55:28 UTC

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.

2018-01-09 22:55:35 UTC

No, it isn't.

2018-01-09 22:55:38 UTC

Or even any kind of socialized healthcare, for that matter.

2018-01-09 22:56:03 UTC

Yeah, we have medicare, but that only applies to certain people, if I remember.

2018-01-09 22:56:36 UTC

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

2018-01-09 22:57:21 UTC

"Can't afford healthcare? We'll just fine you and make you pay us money that you don't have."

2018-01-09 22:57:45 UTC


2018-01-09 22:58:14 UTC


2018-01-09 22:59:18 UTC

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

2018-01-09 23:01:03 UTC

Sorry, didn't mean for that to turn into the mini rant that it did.

2018-01-09 23:11:13 UTC

up on d.tube https://d.tube/#!/v/timcast/qv13ebww

2018-01-09 23:36:47 UTC

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)

2018-01-09 23:38:41 UTC

Iโ€™m not surprised about this at all. Plus isnโ€™t it pretty old news?

2018-01-09 23:39:09 UTC

Hello! ^_^

2018-01-09 23:40:15 UTC


2018-01-09 23:53:16 UTC

I think the functionality hit today? the DC article is posted as today at least

2018-01-09 23:53:32 UTC

They been skewing for a long time though

2018-01-09 23:54:05 UTC

I switched off google after running some searches in DDG and Google side by side a few months back

2018-01-09 23:55:33 UTC

I use bing

2018-01-09 23:55:47 UTC

It's pretty centrist and I like the rewards

2018-01-09 23:56:07 UTC

I switched about six months ago because of the fact checking and doctored search results but itโ€™s good that they are bringing it up again.

2018-01-09 23:57:41 UTC

I use DuckDuckGo

2018-01-09 23:58:19 UTC


2018-01-09 23:58:47 UTC

Ditched most of google besides youtube.

2018-01-09 23:59:18 UTC

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.

2018-01-09 23:59:25 UTC

I don't even use Facebook/Twitter.

2018-01-10 00:00:23 UTC

Facebook I deleted a while back. Have twitter still but for non political stuff.

2018-01-10 00:01:08 UTC

any stories in detroit?

2018-01-10 00:01:14 UTC

going to be there on the 13-15

2018-01-10 00:03:27 UTC

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. ๐Ÿ˜•

2018-01-10 00:11:40 UTC

What happens in detroit really?

2018-01-10 00:11:46 UTC

Never got a Twitter, stopped using Facebook basically once I was out of highschool. Really didn't see the point in it anymore

2018-01-10 00:11:54 UTC

Ummmm shootings?


2018-01-10 00:12:05 UTC

Its just despair there

2018-01-10 00:12:19 UTC

I mean, I've heard they have been trying to reform it.

2018-01-10 00:13:53 UTC

Reform it how? and I am sure the time to reform it was ages ago.

2018-01-10 00:14:45 UTC

Building up the good sections and letting the bad sections just do their thing?

2018-01-10 00:14:51 UTC

Won't be reformed so long as Dems are in charge there. Maybe when infastructure talks happen it will fix things but who knows?

2018-01-10 00:15:13 UTC

Just like every other poor place they are gentrifying.

2018-01-10 00:15:30 UTC

It's happening in downtown Bridgeport here in CT.

entire neighborhoods are torn down cause they're abandaoned

2018-01-10 00:15:59 UTC

Hmm, I heard that Detroit has some of the strictest Gun Control

2018-01-10 00:16:05 UTC

No idea to what extent

2018-01-10 00:16:15 UTC

Built a big ass bass pro shop, put in a Chipotle and Starbucks right there in the middle of a rundown part of town

2018-01-10 00:16:21 UTC

Yeah, not that it helps any.

2018-01-10 00:16:30 UTC

Now they are putting in a hotel and bowling alley

2018-01-10 00:17:00 UTC

I mean, if there is one thing I dont have but I will relentlessly support, its the right to bear arms.

2018-01-10 00:17:17 UTC

Also yes, demolishing long abandoned buildings does help with crime a bit.

2018-01-10 00:17:46 UTC

Or just making the place less of a shithole. People there probably feel abandoned as well.

2018-01-10 00:17:50 UTC

Turns out criminals don't like doing business in open lots where everyone can see as mucb

2018-01-10 00:18:11 UTC

Now, if only we could solve the homeless issue...

2018-01-10 00:18:14 UTC

...oh wait...

*and the poverty*

2018-01-10 00:18:37 UTC

If only they could solve the local job market

2018-01-10 00:18:53 UTC

Only giving welfare to people who work is a great start. (not that I like the idea of welfare really)

2018-01-10 00:18:55 UTC

They have factories there? Or is it used to?

2018-01-10 00:19:12 UTC

Used to be a big factory area

2018-01-10 00:19:21 UTC

Then all the facotries left

2018-01-10 00:19:22 UTC

Last I heard they had car factories there.

most of the large industry left in the 70's

2018-01-10 00:19:36 UTC

Leaving cause of what? Dem regulations or taxes?

2018-01-10 00:19:39 UTC

Yeah so they need to make new jobs.

2018-01-10 00:19:48 UTC

Automation I think

2018-01-10 00:19:55 UTC

Well, on top of that, those jobs are also becoming more and more automated.


2018-01-10 00:20:01 UTC

Didn't need the line workers

2018-01-10 00:20:15 UTC

Could get more cars out of the factories they had

2018-01-10 00:20:30 UTC

Probably also moved to a cheaper state too

2018-01-10 00:20:38 UTC

Basically just the market changed

2018-01-10 00:21:01 UTC

So basically, no jobs in the area

2018-01-10 00:21:11 UTC


southern states offer great insentives for automakers, so a lot of them moved there

2018-01-10 00:22:26 UTC

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.

2018-01-10 00:22:44 UTC

The people who could afford to move away and wanted to did.

same story for most the midwest

2018-01-10 00:23:04 UTC

So the only people left we're too poor or too stubborn to leave.

2018-01-10 00:23:11 UTC


2018-01-10 00:23:22 UTC

Story of a lot of factory towns

2018-01-10 00:23:23 UTC

What the local mayorship is doing aint helping much. Last I heard, they wanted to ban bulletproof glass.

2018-01-10 00:23:42 UTC

Heck, similar story to what happened to bridgeport here.

hence the name for the region, The Rust Belt

2018-01-10 00:24:19 UTC

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

2018-01-10 00:25:11 UTC

Same thing is happening to coal towns now

*has been*

2018-01-10 00:25:32 UTC

Has been happening to mining town for all of history really

since the end of the second world war

2018-01-10 00:25:51 UTC

Mine runs out, everyone peaces

2018-01-10 00:26:23 UTC

But coal is more the market dries up

2018-01-10 00:26:25 UTC

How bout the coal mining jobs coming back? I thought that was one of the things Trump wanted to fix?

2018-01-10 00:26:34 UTC

It is.

`woo coal industry`

2018-01-10 00:27:01 UTC

Will help for a bit but it's probably temporary until the next ban happens.

2018-01-10 00:27:02 UTC

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."

2018-01-10 00:27:55 UTC

"now if only I had pulled out of Paris Accord...."

2018-01-10 00:28:26 UTC

Well, the Paris Accord was definately not helping against GW.

2018-01-10 00:28:58 UTC

And the US was actually putting more of an effort into it more than other countries were.

2018-01-10 00:29:12 UTC

And who was keeping track?

2018-01-10 00:29:19 UTC

Of all the money?

largest alterinative energy producer

2018-01-10 00:29:38 UTC

Or if the countries were actually using them for their intended purposes? Do we just take their word for it?

2018-01-10 00:29:40 UTC

I don't really care about them tbh, and GW alarmist hurt it worst than denyists I think.

2018-01-10 00:29:45 UTC

With coal it's not just about global warming, coal power plants produce a shitload of toxic byproducts

2018-01-10 00:29:47 UTC

Like, making sure some of the money didn't just... disappear?

2018-01-10 00:30:05 UTC

Coal just in general has been on the way out for a while

2018-01-10 00:30:32 UTC

We need more nuclear plants.

oil is heading that way too

2018-01-10 00:30:37 UTC

People not happy with regulation around it? Or that people can get it cheaper overseas?

2018-01-10 00:30:48 UTC

Like what caused the US coal mines to shut down in the first place?

2018-01-10 00:31:23 UTC

@CreativeRealms if they were more commercially viable we would be building them

2018-01-10 00:31:54 UTC

And well, if they had some low risk areas to construct them

2018-01-10 00:32:08 UTC

They are powerful yes, but one mistake can screw over alot

2018-01-10 00:32:11 UTC

When oil prices slowly increase they would be more appealing to investors

2018-01-10 00:32:35 UTC

Not that we dont trust Nuclear, more like we dont trust people to keep it in check

2018-01-10 00:32:48 UTC

Not to mention that it can be used for war as well

2018-01-10 00:32:51 UTC

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

2018-01-10 00:32:59 UTC

Yeah they are really safe.

2018-01-10 00:33:10 UTC

That's part of their cost though

expensive to run

2018-01-10 00:33:38 UTC

Less pollution though.

2018-01-10 00:33:39 UTC

@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

2018-01-10 00:33:51 UTC

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

2018-01-10 00:34:22 UTC

You could argue birth defects

2018-01-10 00:34:27 UTC

Some will argue that the damage to the environment is more important
