Well, I've heard of the Steele dossier, albeit only recently

2017-11-17 16:31:50 UTC

Cept it was linked to the Hillary campaign now

2017-11-17 16:31:55 UTC

*mind boggles*

2017-11-17 16:34:01 UTC

this will be another string of wild assumptions with no evidence used to demonize Trump further, there won't be a single document or phone call or video to prove a word of it but it will become progressive canon.

2017-11-17 16:34:23 UTC

of course if you afforded the same scrutiny to Hillary she would be in jail by the end of the month

Life is a parody

partisonship knows no bounds

2017-11-18 00:21:28 UTC

It's almost like these people have no morals.

2017-11-18 00:44:03 UTC

"If it wasn't for double standards, they would have no standards."

Everyone replying with 'it's Trump's fault' when the stats are from 2016. You know, when he wasn't President.

2017-11-18 07:42:01 UTC

Wowie, now he's not just a "Nazi", he's a *time-travelling* Nazi.

call me an ass but

2017-11-18 22:42:24 UTC

i would rather not

2017-11-18 22:56:14 UTC

Call me a sane person, and i would also rather not.

2017-11-18 22:56:57 UTC

i mean, HIV positive people in a environment with knives? nope

2017-11-18 23:14:18 UTC

like i get why they did it but why...

2017-11-18 23:14:38 UTC

(((Diversity))) of course

2017-11-18 23:14:49 UTC

This annoys the shit out of me. As far as I'm concerned, everybody just needs to chill the fuck out and let the police sort it out. This is a bunch of immature shit throwing between different camps. What a bunch of goddamn children.

2017-11-18 23:15:06 UTC

it has just exploded

2017-11-18 23:16:02 UTC

and nobody actually cares about the problems that exist. they would rather devolve into a mob of partisanship

2017-11-18 23:16:39 UTC

But Dan, mob mentality is cool! Get with the program, you bigot!

2017-11-18 23:17:07 UTC

I wish I could comment on the article and tell AOS the same thing. It's too soon for an article like this and they're playing the same game as far as I can tell.

The skeptic community is my tribe

2017-11-18 23:19:35 UTC

And my tribe can do no wrong

2017-11-18 23:20:07 UTC

If I was Hitler and could choose to gas people

2017-11-18 23:21:54 UTC

I would gas trannies and furries

2017-11-18 23:22:03 UTC


2017-11-18 23:22:59 UTC

what do we do with the traps

2017-11-18 23:23:20 UTC

I say keep them

2017-11-18 23:23:25 UTC

Traps are gay

2017-11-18 23:23:35 UTC

And I wouldn’t gas homosexuals

2017-11-18 23:24:01 UTC


2017-11-18 23:24:20 UTC

he could gas others but he could not gas himself

2017-11-19 06:49:10 UTC

Guy's obviously crazy, from the sounds of it. I wonder if the same people that were pushing gun legislation over mental health issues in the last few shootings will have anything to say. Regardless, it's good he's out of the public now before he did anything, hopefully they can get him the help he needs.

2017-11-19 07:25:10 UTC

"According to The Daily Telegraph’s report, Jess arrived home from work 15 minutes later than planned because she’d stopped to pick up dinner for Wallace. When the dinner Jess brought home wasn’t the one Wallace wanted, he began to yell, and shortly thereafter, started attacking her."

2017-11-19 07:25:30 UTC

Humours me how every article insists on mentioning the 'men-only' policy his barbershop reportedly had

2017-11-19 07:26:06 UTC

"men-only" = "I probably like to beat up women" (and then get knocked out by them)

2017-11-19 07:26:13 UTC

Well we gotta focus on the real issues here

2017-11-19 07:26:25 UTC

Who cares about his ~~wife~~ former fiancee, his barbershop *only served men*

2017-11-19 07:32:24 UTC

Honestly wouldn't be surprised if they were both of dubious character

2017-11-19 07:32:32 UTC

But rather besides the point

2017-11-19 07:33:25 UTC

Dude beat on and choked her and pleaded guilty to it in a court of law

2017-11-19 07:33:49 UTC

Professional fighters usually aren't of the most sound mind, unfortunately.

2017-11-19 07:34:38 UTC

Most of them seem alright; at least the ones who don't bumble away on the regional circuit because they're not actually that good

2017-11-19 07:34:49 UTC

There have been some pretty atrocious stories tho

2017-11-19 07:39:59 UTC

Part of the problem is, given that it is a combat sport, anytime someone within the sport does something bad outside of the cage, it's gonna look particularly bad

2017-11-19 07:41:01 UTC

I mean, hell, the whole kneeling shit seemed to hurt the NFL's image more than Ray Rice knocking his girl out cold did (or any number of other scandals)

2017-11-19 07:41:41 UTC

Chris Benoit murdered his entire family and then offed himself and the WWE appeared to just continue on it's merry way

2017-11-19 08:54:59 UTC

Isn't "men only" barbershops a common thing? That usually means they only do simple haircuts and shave/trim beards mustaches.

2017-11-19 09:04:32 UTC

Yeah, they are pretty common from what I've heard

2017-11-19 09:06:17 UTC

"Hey bitches, we don't do your nails, we don't have your expensive hair products, don't bother coming in."

The German agency claims that an unnamed Hollywood actor offered to pay $2.8 million for her virginity.

β€œThe high bidding for Giselle's auction shows us how high the demand for virgins is,” a spokesperson for the agency told the Mail. β€œBusiness people from all over the world have been bidding.”

2017-11-19 15:58:44 UTC

Which actor?

2017-11-19 15:59:01 UTC

If was anyone important they would have put his name down

2017-11-19 15:59:29 UTC

They didn't put down the name of the bidder who won

2017-11-19 15:59:36 UTC

So I'd assume there's a confidentiality clause there

2017-11-19 15:59:41 UTC

Otherwise noone would fucking bid

2017-11-19 15:59:49 UTC

Teenager decided to whore herself, the news is about the idiot that bought her. Pussy Pass Granted!

2017-11-19 15:59:59 UTC

It is legal in Germany

2017-11-19 16:00:15 UTC

but she is still a whore <:think_200iq:378717098681171988>

2017-11-19 16:00:48 UTC


2017-11-19 16:01:54 UTC

Do they even need his resignation, if they're going to force him?

2017-11-19 16:02:58 UTC

if it is the party asking for it than yes

2017-11-19 16:03:19 UTC


2017-11-19 16:10:33 UTC

I mean, the military pretty much forced him out of the presidency. What value is it to have him resign?

2017-11-19 16:18:56 UTC

its about saving the creditbility of the party

2017-11-19 19:48:45 UTC


2017-11-20 01:17:06 UTC

#cnn-news would just be for fake news<:think_200iq:378717098681171988>

2017-11-20 01:18:26 UTC

I always figured parody news stories would just go in <#372508286529961996>

2017-11-20 01:18:34 UTC

Seems as good a place as any

2017-11-20 01:19:03 UTC

fair enough

2017-11-20 16:58:27 UTC

I'm sure this is gonna go juuuuuuuuust fine

"β€œI don’t believe in science,” said Hughes, whose main sponsor for the rocket is Research Flat Earth."

2017-11-21 15:07:46 UTC


2017-11-21 15:07:49 UTC

...this is..

2017-11-21 15:07:50 UTC


2017-11-21 15:07:53 UTC

..this is gonna end well.

2017-11-21 15:09:15 UTC

The fact this is reportedly a 'steam-powered rocket' being sponsored by flat earth is just..

2017-11-21 15:09:17 UTC


2017-11-21 15:09:33 UTC

so fuckin' rich it should be used as an ice-cream topping

2017-11-21 15:11:11 UTC

I hope someone captures the "launch"

2017-11-21 15:19:47 UTC


2017-11-21 15:22:01 UTC

That looks impossible to survive right?

2017-11-21 15:22:06 UTC

Only 35 people died

2017-11-21 15:22:14 UTC

62 lived

2017-11-21 15:27:42 UTC

It didn't crash that hard into the ground.

2017-11-21 15:27:48 UTC

I guess it was a slow descent Β―\_(ツ)_/Β―

2017-11-21 15:28:57 UTC

That flat earther, could just buy a fucking boat. Or a plane ticket across the pacific.

2017-11-21 15:30:45 UTC

Here's what will happen: dumbass is going to die in a big ball of fire, other flat earthers will believe the government sabotaged his flaming coffin.

2017-11-21 15:33:23 UTC

Flat earthers are a fantastic example of how important the perception of reality is, though

2017-11-21 15:33:28 UTC

I was thinking about this a few weeks back

2017-11-21 15:33:37 UTC

how one could actually change a flat earthers mind

2017-11-21 15:33:49 UTC

but because so much of it is based in conspiracy, you're already pretty much screwed

2017-11-21 15:34:00 UTC

Even if you put them in a fucking space shuttle and blasted them into orbit

2017-11-21 15:34:28 UTC

They'd simply argue that it was all a setup and that you had put them in a high-tech version of those rides you see at Disneyland

2017-11-21 15:34:43 UTC

You'd literally have to let them open the airlock and die in the vacuum before they'd be convinced

2017-11-21 15:34:46 UTC

And then they'd be dead

2017-11-21 15:35:21 UTC

..and then their mates on the online forum would probably conclude that he was murdered for revealing TEH TWOOFF!

2017-11-21 15:35:41 UTC

Get on a boat. Sail toward where the edge is. Done.

2017-11-21 15:35:56 UTC


2017-11-21 15:37:55 UTC

They have to deny the most elementary aspects of navigation, such as compass, or where the sun rises and sets, in order to claim the boat got turned around or something.

2017-11-21 15:39:27 UTC

But I honestly think they're just larpers, pretending to be retards.

2017-11-21 15:42:59 UTC

I could say "yeah, rape is morally wrong", but that won't stop rape. Rape is just a part of nature, and whether or not you think it's "morally wrong" doesn't matter. Because rape is just a fact, something which happens. If I were to say that I don't want it to happen, it's just as much my own emotional decision to say that as the rapist thinks it's his own emotional decision to do it; because there's no authority but yourself. Because there's no objective morality, which is just an objective statement which you can arrive at yourself if you realize morality is a social construct - then you can realize that deciding to rape someone was never a logical decision, just as much as saying you don't want to be raped is a logical decision; it's an emotional decision. It may be a fact that emotional decisions happen, but you can only say that people do or do not want to be raped; you can't derive an is from that aught, as the philosopher Hume might say.

2017-11-21 16:06:52 UTC

Saw on /r/space that since he's using steam to power his "rocket" he won't actually get very high(A ceiling of 2 miles, generously considered), so he's probably just going to confirm his own bias if he even gets off the ground

2017-11-21 16:23:31 UTC

It's more likely it leaks into the cockpit and it turns into a very, very hot sauna.

2017-11-21 16:27:15 UTC

Reminded me of the stories of me163 test pilots being dissolved by t-stoff propellant leaking into the flight cabin

2017-11-21 16:28:53 UTC

Scenes of jubilation in Salisbury, the capital of Zimbabwe.

2017-11-21 16:32:11 UTC

Ok, so he apparently already flew one of his rockets once.

2017-11-21 16:32:29 UTC

Look at all those holes in the parachute.

2017-11-21 16:32:32 UTC

wot a mad lad

2017-11-21 16:32:36 UTC


2017-11-21 16:34:03 UTC

The article mentions that; but it also says he collapsed after landing and took three days to recover

2017-11-21 16:34:14 UTC

speedholes bruh

2017-11-21 16:34:18 UTC

don't believe in science

2017-11-21 16:35:05 UTC

*Watches video*

2017-11-21 16:35:07 UTC

Gravity is just a theory, after all.

2017-11-21 16:35:19 UTC

I didn't think GoPros had a '10fps' setting

2017-11-21 16:35:50 UTC

Yeah, it's fishy that he doesn't have footage from the outside. Could just have been a model rocket or something.

2017-11-21 16:36:09 UTC

What's all the white shit flaking off of it?

2017-11-21 16:36:22 UTC


2017-11-21 16:36:24 UTC

geez I hope not

2017-11-21 16:36:28 UTC

dandrumpf of course

2017-11-21 16:36:38 UTC

yeah, first thing I thought was how it looked like that

2017-11-21 16:36:48 UTC

that or paint chips

2017-11-21 16:36:58 UTC

but I thought he would've eaten all of them

2017-11-21 16:37:20 UTC

holy fucking shit

2017-11-21 16:37:27 UTC

did he purchase that parachute second-hand?

2017-11-21 16:37:53 UTC

There's a lot of material flying off the thing indeed.

2017-11-21 16:38:23 UTC

More like he went dumpster diving for the parachute.

2017-11-21 16:38:28 UTC

"His future plans include an excursion into space. He and Stakes have already brainstormed on a β€œRockoon,” which is a rocket that, rather than being immediately ignited while on the ground, is carried into the atmosphere by a gas-filled balloon, then separated from the balloon and lit. This rocket will take Hughes about 68 miles up."

2017-11-21 16:38:48 UTC


2017-11-21 16:39:27 UTC

I've seen better KSP rockets

2017-11-21 16:39:43 UTC


2017-11-21 16:39:46 UTC

is that s single tether?

2017-11-21 16:40:07 UTC

"well, if it works for the space shuttle.."

2017-11-21 16:41:30 UTC


2017-11-21 16:41:53 UTC


2017-11-21 16:43:01 UTC

I'm curious about what the flappy thing on the top left is.

2017-11-21 16:43:42 UTC


2017-11-21 16:43:55 UTC

But yeah, video looks like filmed from a model rocket, then slowed down to this ridiculous frame rate.

2017-11-21 16:48:09 UTC


2017-11-21 16:48:28 UTC

It appears the nozzle is attached directly to the fuel tank... no fuel pump... is this just a water bottle rocket?

2017-11-21 16:51:07 UTC


2017-11-21 16:53:05 UTC

Did you mean to post that on <#372508286529961996>?

2017-11-21 16:53:41 UTC


2017-11-21 16:54:08 UTC

this is news not memes

2017-11-21 16:54:16 UTC

Sorry dad

2017-11-21 16:54:21 UTC


2017-11-21 16:54:40 UTC

what in the fuck

2017-11-21 16:59:48 UTC

tl;dr the US has been voting "No" consistantly ever since it was initated

2017-11-21 17:00:36 UTC

because it violates the 1st amendment , the only reason why the shitdependent is writing about its because of donald drumpf

2017-11-21 17:01:24 UTC

We live in times where just talking about history is equated to defending nazis. Nay, even talking about forced speech is equated to a Hitler speech.

2017-11-21 17:01:49 UTC

Well, if it turns out steam rocket man didn't actually do this before

2017-11-21 17:01:56 UTC

then this is going to go even *better* than I thought

2017-11-22 04:30:14 UTC

Seriously, if I owned a venue I would throw a special event just to celebrate.

2017-11-22 04:30:34 UTC

What's happened to America. We hardly care about shit like this. We should be cheering in the streets.

2017-11-22 04:30:57 UTC

Because it isnt in our backyard

2017-11-22 04:31:49 UTC

Yeah well I doubt they're gonna celebrate in Europe either and I'd say it's in their backyard.

2017-11-22 04:32:38 UTC

I want to print this article and post it up around town.

2017-11-22 04:32:46 UTC

Iunno, i guess because the focus lately has been trump and regressive aggression

2017-11-22 04:33:28 UTC

It's sad. America has hardly the pride it used to. Nobody remembers the greatest generation.

2017-11-22 04:34:41 UTC

I mean, so many years without large scale conflict has allowed the middle class to grow cancerous, which is what results in all these entitled know-it-alls

2017-11-22 04:34:50 UTC

Im assuming

2017-11-22 04:37:29 UTC

Because, people legit don't give a shit about it

2017-11-22 04:37:36 UTC

People died

2017-11-22 04:37:44 UTC

money trought the toilet

2017-11-22 04:37:45 UTC


2017-11-22 04:37:46 UTC


2017-11-22 04:39:04 UTC

Basically this ^

It's yet another of the dozens "poorly defined Islamic bad guys in Middle East killed by other Islamists" story

2017-11-22 04:39:16 UTC

There's been so many in the last decade

2017-11-22 04:39:27 UTC

And there's always more popping up

2017-11-22 04:39:41 UTC

Considering it's so far away, it's really hard to give a shit, even if it is a good thing

2017-11-22 04:40:19 UTC

I guess its also because its been the norm for almost 20 years

2017-11-22 05:09:06 UTC


2017-11-22 05:09:11 UTC

let's be adults here

2017-11-22 05:09:15 UTC

if anyone wanted to end this shit

2017-11-22 05:09:18 UTC

it would be over

2017-11-22 05:09:21 UTC

track the money

2017-11-22 05:09:24 UTC

end the money man

2017-11-22 05:09:31 UTC

kill the insurgents

2017-11-22 05:10:04 UTC

are you telling me that the most powerfull superpower in the world can't end a few dudes in the desert?

2017-11-22 05:10:05 UTC

fuck that

2017-11-22 05:10:27 UTC

I don't think you're qualified to say it's that simple in the least.

I'm not a General, I'm not a high-level intelligence operative, this shit is complex af.

Sure, I'd like to think it was simple to just put them down and that's that, but I think it's dangerous to make those assumptions.

Especially from a military tactical perspective.

As well as a global politics perspective

Serious quesion? Idk, I don't know shit about strategy versus Islamic terrorists.

I'm not gonna make confident claims regarding how to efficiently take them out.

I'd defer my opinion to the experts on that one.

2017-11-22 05:53:21 UTC

Nah, I know it's way more than just "bomb people". I was being a shitter

Gumby, you're just saying "lol ok suuuuure" without explaining anything.
