2018-07-04 22:42:02 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Yeah, I'm curious how the results would've changed were it worded differently. I'm not proud to be an American. I did nothing to gain that title.
I am thankful to be an American, proud of America itself, and proud to do my best to uphold the foundational American principles, but not proud simply to live where I do.

2018-07-04 22:43:53 UTC [Subverse #general]  

I think they're all kind of silly to be proud of. Be proud to be who you are and include those bits of who you are, but being proud of those descriptors makes it seem like you have little of substance to be proud of.

2018-07-04 22:44:44 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Simply being an American doesn't mean those values are inherent in yourself. Be proud of the values you hold; not the label.

2018-07-04 22:46:05 UTC [Subverse #general]  

I think nationalism to some extent is a good thing. But only when it's centered around what makes your nation great. To simply say 'we're great because we're us' risks losing sight of those values.

2018-07-04 22:47:37 UTC [Subverse #general]  

I can agree with that. I just think that the wording used to describe it is very important so that the important nuances don't fall by the wayside

2018-07-04 23:10:21 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Sad that the first past the post voting system makes a two party system the only realistic possibility for the US

2018-07-04 23:12:55 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Somehow I doubt that the republicans or the democrats are going to be too eager to do away with the systems that give them a political duopoly. But hey it could be way worse, so I'm not about to start a revolution over it

2018-07-04 23:22:50 UTC [Subverse #general]  

good joke dude

2018-07-04 23:36:51 UTC [Subverse #general]  

The good ol' Blizzard "more deckslots is too confusing for players" excuse

2018-07-04 23:39:37 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Sounds good to me. I get to be the one man, right?

2018-07-05 00:04:10 UTC [Subverse #general]  

@Deleted User Gotta poison that well asap or else you might risk having to argue against what they actually have to say.

2018-07-05 00:05:00 UTC [Subverse #general]  

I meant what he's doing in his introduction by saying that if you're not for open borders you're for violence

2018-07-05 00:32:10 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Man, that tweet is making me reconsider things. Maybe words really CAN be as harmful as physical violence.

2018-07-05 00:34:04 UTC [Subverse #general]  

"Yeah, but it's not economically viable these days, so it's an artform that should just die out" - art school student

2018-07-05 00:37:30 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Not that I'm advocating for this as a good system, but it is impressive how some communities are able to do as well in trained fields as they do without any formal acadamia. Like the street dentists in India for example. I'd still prefer to go to a dentists office, but it's interesting how well they're able to do many things

2018-07-05 00:38:10 UTC [Subverse #general]  

My toothpick bridge held up pretty well and I didn't need any fancy degree

2018-07-05 00:40:01 UTC [Subverse #general]  

It's really hard to say how soon AI will advance to a point where they compete for a wide variety of jobs

2018-07-05 00:40:33 UTC [Subverse #general]  

The current 'AI' made music is pretty damn impressive compared to what was possible 20 years ago

2018-07-05 00:41:22 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Sounds like humans

2018-07-05 00:42:14 UTC [Subverse #general]  

For all we know hardware will be replaced by artificial wetware

2018-07-05 00:43:29 UTC [Subverse #general]  

a biocomputer, so basically if we could grow a braincomputer for example

2018-07-05 00:44:10 UTC [Subverse #general]  

After all, we do know that brains have intelligence, so if we could one day understand it there's a possibility we could replicate it and tweak it

2018-07-05 00:45:50 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Can't wait to download a waifu \

2018-07-05 00:46:37 UTC [Subverse #general]  

I would not want any neural interface. I don't want to be hacked, and I wouldn't want to get model 1.0 and regret it after 2.0 comes out

2018-07-05 00:47:36 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Well let's be honest here, we're already living in a simulation, so there's no telling if we're already hacked

2018-07-05 00:50:11 UTC [Subverse #general]  

I think the important distinction is how much the internet is able to access your mind, and how blurry the border between your mind and the others are

2018-07-05 00:50:28 UTC [Subverse #general]  


2018-07-05 00:53:30 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Combine them I guess. Lab grown human steaks

2018-07-05 00:58:41 UTC [Subverse #general]  

What level unlocks barbarian rage?

2018-07-05 00:59:49 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Sparta is the Texas of Greece, change my mind

2018-07-05 01:00:54 UTC [Subverse #general]  

They joined later than the other citystates, and maintained a unique cultural identity unlike the others. They're just ancient Texas

2018-07-05 01:01:34 UTC [Subverse #general]  

I know there's an Athens georgia since a ton of bands come from there

2018-07-05 01:02:47 UTC [Subverse #general]  

I thought it was named after the movie adaptation of Sin City

2018-07-05 01:09:19 UTC [Subverse #general]  

The whole left/right dichotomy seems incredibly outdated to me.

2018-07-05 01:14:23 UTC [Subverse #general]  

I bet you're not even a high ranking member of the feudal system

2018-07-05 01:17:22 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Because for far too long us, the gamers have been oppressed by society. It's finally time we reclaim the name for us, the proud, the few, the gamers.

2018-07-05 01:19:04 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Gamers should be allowed extra privileges. Like immunity from bans.

2018-07-05 01:34:25 UTC [Subverse #general]  

I left the south for the first time in a long time, and definitely noticed just how many white people were everywhere, and that was in a very urban environment

2018-07-05 01:35:12 UTC [Subverse #general]  

The main difference there was that there was a very clear line separating the black part of town from the rest whereas where I'm from it's much more of a patchwork quilt of different communities with blurry lines

2018-07-05 01:38:34 UTC [Subverse #general]  

I have the time to talk because I'm not using my time being a productive member of society and earning money

2018-07-05 01:51:18 UTC [Subverse #general]  

The fursuit makes it so that when you're forced to kill someone to take their food that you won't feel any guilt though

2018-07-07 00:23:31 UTC [Subverse #general]  

It's weird that it blew up so much recently. Are we going to see people saying "thanks doc" everywhere in a few years?

2018-07-07 01:48:47 UTC [Subverse #general]  


2018-07-07 04:49:42 UTC [Subverse #general]  

taking all bets on who gets wrongly blamed this time

2018-07-07 04:50:16 UTC [Subverse #general]  

He can't keep getting away with this

2018-07-07 04:51:55 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Seems like that's the trend lately rather than blaming the guns themselves

2018-07-07 04:52:53 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Honestly a part of me is thankful that's the option they go with instead of realizing how easy it is to make bombs

2018-07-07 04:55:37 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Yeah someone said like 5 mins ago on twitter he was already caught

2018-07-07 04:56:48 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Do we actually know it was an attempted mass shooting yet rather than just attempted murder/mugging/idiocy?

2018-07-07 05:00:00 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Yeah, why participate when you can instead set up a bot to ask open ended questions and post jokes at random intervals instead

2018-07-07 06:21:54 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Mean world syndrome is a bitch. I'm sure it's worse for those whose job it is to pay attention to this stuff.

2018-07-07 06:22:31 UTC [Subverse #general]  

But then he also had a good point in a recent podcast that it only takes a small percent of mean people to force everyone else to either get mean or roll over.

2018-07-07 06:42:02 UTC [Subverse #general]  

It really is weird though how great the living conditions in the western world are and have been compared to all of human history, and yet how much unrest there is from people that it's not even better. Hopefully people don't fuck it all up.

2018-07-07 06:42:31 UTC [Subverse #general]  

It'd be interesting to see what the history books have to say about modern times 50 years from now.

2018-07-07 20:22:26 UTC [Subverse #general]  

I don't remember when I started following him. I just wanted to play video games 😒

2018-07-07 20:27:36 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Yeah, I don't think she's some evil person, but she's closer to a provocateur than an unbiased journalist if you ask me

2018-07-07 20:28:10 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Which to be honest I think there's some merit in having people like that, but it's just not the sort of thing I'm interested in

2018-07-07 20:28:35 UTC [Subverse #general]  

He isn't(no one is completely), but it's clear that he tries way harder than most

2018-07-07 20:29:31 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Like that's one of the things I see people complain about him often because they view it as him not being willing to take a hard stance when it seems to me more like he just is trying to present the facts and let us make our own decisions

2018-07-07 20:29:32 UTC [Subverse #general]  


2018-07-07 20:31:10 UTC [Subverse #general]  

and he's very willing to give the benefit of the doubt to people far past what most people are willing to

2018-07-07 20:32:26 UTC [Subverse #general]  

when joe learns how scheduling works

2018-07-07 20:36:42 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Oh yeah, I've seen a couple of her videos before

2018-07-07 20:36:58 UTC [Subverse #general]  

oh I'm apparently subscribed to her already

2018-07-07 21:03:19 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Because that goes against Tim's narrative.

2018-07-07 21:03:28 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Foxes? We all know raccoons are the type that do that

2018-07-07 21:06:25 UTC [Subverse #general]  

And a ticker so that while he's covering the important news about thieving foxes we can still get smaller stories like wars breaking out, natural disasters, etc

2018-07-07 21:12:32 UTC [Subverse #general]  

It's childish and dumb, but yeah it's worth little more than an eye-roll

2018-07-07 21:13:13 UTC [Subverse #general]  

But really can we get a democrat in office already so that I don't have so see so many political caricatures please?

2018-07-07 21:14:07 UTC [Subverse #general]  

I thought having to live through all the Bush chimp photoshops online was bad before, but that was nothing compared to orange trumps

2018-07-07 21:25:20 UTC [Subverse #general]  

I don't care about the politics of the jokes. It's just not funny is my issue. Nothing could be after being so overdone

2018-07-07 21:33:01 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Did Colbert used to actually be funny or was I just a dumb high schooler?

2018-07-07 21:36:03 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Yeah I could definitely see people taking it as unironic

2018-07-07 21:37:42 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Can we just replace the hammer and sickle with a bike lock and fire cracker yet?

2018-07-07 21:38:10 UTC [Subverse #general]  

It's so weird to see all the comics defending censorship

2018-07-07 21:43:43 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Can we just give the religious right some soft power back?

2018-07-07 21:44:01 UTC [Subverse #general]  

At least they could just be laughed away when they called Pokemon satanic

2018-07-07 21:45:13 UTC [Subverse #general]  

There is no satan in the world of Pokemon. Pokemon is Arceic

2018-07-07 21:47:33 UTC [Subverse #general]  

You're talking about Zoroastrism right

2018-07-07 23:30:05 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Does violence break out much at pro-left rallies? It seems to happen more as a response to anything not seen as 'left'.

2018-07-07 23:31:46 UTC [Subverse #general]  

At least in the US it's seemed more a matter of what the police are willing to do than whether they're there

2018-07-07 23:33:35 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Usually it seems like counterprotesters start the violence, and the left wing events don't seem to garner much counterprotest

2018-07-07 23:34:12 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Yeah I wouldn't be surprised if something happened in Britain, but it seems like this will just be another ego driven fashion protest

2018-07-07 23:44:12 UTC [Subverse #dank-memes-only]

2018-07-08 00:02:32 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Nobody uses Voat.

2018-07-08 00:57:26 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Why would he be on trial when he's just trying to save the environment?

2018-07-08 00:58:26 UTC [Subverse #general]  

If he had given out more bike locks maybe the Pandas would no longer be endangered

2018-07-08 01:00:01 UTC [Subverse #general]  

You'd be surprised just how many animals are like that and will only mate under very specific circumstances. But most of them have the privilege to be picky like that since there's enough of them around.

2018-07-08 01:01:16 UTC [Subverse #general]  

But yeah black bloc is awful because of how it allows the cowards to cover for the violent extremists and retain plausible deniability

2018-07-08 01:02:48 UTC [Subverse #general]  

I was reading some antifa faction's tactics wiki recently that talked about how they had 3 different 'rankings'
Black = just there to give numbers, Green = the people there to be PR ,and Red=the ones who were actually going to be violent

2018-07-08 01:03:32 UTC [Subverse #general]  


2018-07-08 01:06:28 UTC [Subverse #general]  
2018-07-08 01:08:13 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Also looks like I remembered it a bit wrong, or maybe I'm getting two different sources mixed up

2018-07-08 01:12:07 UTC [Subverse #fake-news]  

The hot coffee incident was totally a justified case.

2018-07-08 01:12:45 UTC [Subverse #fake-news]  

That women was horribly burned to the point her legs fused together, and all she asked of McDonalds was for her medical bills to be paid.

2018-07-08 01:13:42 UTC [Subverse #fake-news]  

And they were purposefully heating their coffee to absurdly unsafe levels on purpose so that people wouldn't be able to drink it quickly and ask for refills before they left.

2018-07-08 01:14:45 UTC [Subverse #fake-news]  

You absolutely can sue for utterly stupid shit, but that doesn't mean it's going to go in your favor. The slaphappy lawsuit-state of America is greatly overblown.

2018-07-08 01:15:06 UTC [Subverse #fake-news]  

Now slapp suits are worth complaining about.

2018-07-08 01:27:54 UTC [Subverse #fake-news]  

potentially, also there's just the opportunity cost and actual cost of going to court in the first place

2018-07-08 01:31:38 UTC [Subverse #fake-news]  

🀠 Having Castle Doctrine in TX is nice

2018-07-08 01:31:57 UTC [Subverse #fake-news]  

it even applies to when you're in your car

2018-07-08 01:35:24 UTC [Subverse #fake-news]  

use the ol' dollar bill on a fishing pole trick

2018-07-08 01:36:24 UTC [Subverse #fake-news]  

speaking of creepy I recently found out that Galveston TX is one of the worlds "most haunted" towns

But surely bannerlord is right around the corner, right?

2018-07-08 02:03:04 UTC [Subverse #fake-news]  

Android's also changing/changed the dagger to a blue sparkly fantasy sword, and took the egg out of the salad to make it vegan friendly

2018-07-08 02:22:06 UTC [Subverse #general]  

He's got KKK patches on his vest. I think he was just walking back with them because he had something to say

2018-07-08 02:23:08 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Well it's probably not often they'd get a chance to show them off

2018-07-08 02:26:27 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Time zones are an abomination that should be taken out back

2018-07-08 02:26:50 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Or at least greatly standardized

2018-07-08 02:27:13 UTC [Subverse #general]  

No, just do away with time all together

2018-07-08 02:27:22 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Time is just a number man

2018-07-08 02:27:38 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Time is a spook

2018-07-08 02:28:34 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Yakub was not a white man

2018-07-08 02:29:31 UTC [Subverse #general]  

We learned about that a bit in my communications class

2018-07-08 02:31:17 UTC [Subverse #general]  

What's that term for societies where they don't take time strictly? Like if you tell someone to meet you at 12 they might show up from 12-5

2018-07-08 02:32:42 UTC [Subverse #general]  

It's hard to. They lost that fight a long time ago, and any sticking to it just deserve to be laughed at

2018-07-08 02:37:50 UTC [Subverse #general]  

"It's racist to expect PoC to adhere to a schedule because they don't understand how time works" - some anti-racism activist probably

2018-07-08 02:39:08 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Is it just me or did the onion go down in quality after they were bought by univision?

2018-07-08 02:40:29 UTC [Subverse #general]  

It's been a lot of people saying that about civility the last week. Also don't forget them conflating political correctness and civility to try and point out hypocrisy in those who say that civility is good.

2018-07-08 02:41:30 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Yeah, but they need to tear everything down because the pipe dream utopia in their head is totally going to work

2018-07-08 02:42:05 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Everyone knows making things terrible is the first step to improving things

2018-07-08 02:44:42 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Oh yeah, I just remembered the terms are 'monochronic' and 'polychronic' where monochronic societies care about schedules, and polychronic ones are less static and dependent on time

2018-07-08 02:46:03 UTC [Subverse #general]  

It's nice being able to step over the border into a country where I'm a minority so that I can be as prejudiced as I want, but it's ok because I'm oppressed

2018-07-08 02:49:22 UTC [Subverse #general]  

In that case they can increase their scope of the 'system' globally to say that white people still have more power than Nigerians

2018-07-08 03:03:45 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Oh no. I never even thought of that.

2018-07-08 03:07:57 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Sounds likely. It's not like they have a lot of art coming from there that is going to be getting attention from the west, so they would probably want to support it

2018-07-08 03:08:26 UTC [Subverse #general]  

And yeah a lot of the more realism focused games seem to attract those types. Like Red Orchestra for example

2018-07-08 03:34:08 UTC [Subverse #fake-news]  

Lesson: Don't try to hand feed sharks.

2018-07-08 03:36:24 UTC [Subverse #fake-news]  

Actual video of Jack himself

2018-07-08 04:10:42 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Wow they upload a ton of videos each day.

2018-07-08 04:11:01 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Looks like any of their videos not related to racism or Trump get about a third of the views as those that are

2018-07-08 04:12:25 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Kind of pointless when all their videos are available at any time

2018-07-08 04:13:06 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Just means they're going to be forced to cover meaningless bullshit like 'actor doesn't like that twitter lets us know who people are'

2018-07-08 04:13:26 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Like seriously if these people cared about exposing white supremacists they should WANT them verified

2018-07-08 04:14:18 UTC [Subverse #general]  

For the longest time I had no idea if Richard Spencer was actually a white supremacist or not because I knew I couldn't just trust that label to be handed out accurately

2018-07-08 04:15:04 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Same shit here. If someone is being racist on twitter I want to know it's coming from them and not a fake account.

2018-07-08 04:26:07 UTC [Subverse #general]  

According to Tim you dress like people you wanna bang, so if you can use it if you see any hot dudes in beanies

2018-07-08 04:31:03 UTC [Subverse #general]  

What'd he do that triggered it?

2018-07-08 04:32:56 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Probably different when you're a public figure

2018-07-08 04:56:34 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Good. Let it die with no children.

2018-07-08 06:01:19 UTC [Subverse #general]  

like following the rules

2018-07-08 06:45:42 UTC [Subverse #shitposting]

I don't often give in to schadenfreud, but damn if I don't get a smile every time I see another sword stuck in the crawling corpse of Gawker.

2018-07-08 18:20:43 UTC [Subverse #fake-news]  

I can see it happening in some countries for sure.

2018-07-08 18:21:16 UTC [Subverse #fake-news]  

Like Britain at times already feels like an anarcho-tyrany

2018-07-08 18:27:12 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

1st and 2nd wave had a lot of questionable elements to them as well, we only remember the good ones

2018-07-08 18:28:05 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

Like the suffragettes(NOT the suffragists) were terrorists at times. Firebombing buildings, throwing axes at politicians, defacing art, etc.

2018-07-08 18:29:19 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

Could they actually? I thought it was that most women didn't want the right to vote because it would've come with the draft

2018-07-08 18:29:49 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

Which of course fuck them. They were denying others their rights because they didn't want them

2018-07-08 18:33:11 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

Do you know any source where I can read about that? Because everything I've heard says that they COULDN'T vote no matter what, but it was commonly accepted that if they were given the right to vote it would come with the responsibility of being forced to enter the draft

2018-07-08 18:34:20 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

And also many considered it to be a pointless right since everyone got married early back then, and 90% of them were just going to vote what their husband did anyways, so double the votes on both sides wasn't going to help them much

2018-07-08 18:35:12 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

But yeah there was a lot of shit back then that still exists in the 3rd wave

2018-07-08 18:35:58 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

go for it

2018-07-08 18:38:46 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

Yeah, but playing against them and hosting them is going to likely ruin your business

2018-07-08 18:38:56 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

I don't know enough about how sports leagues are structured

2018-07-08 18:39:55 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

I don't think so especially not when it's clear they're going to keep winning given their record (which is probably unrelated to their race)

2018-07-08 18:40:55 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

But we don't know they're going to do that

2018-07-08 18:42:41 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

I think it would be disastrous PR for anyone hosting them. Just look at how someone as milquetoast as Jordan Peterson gets treated when he attends an event. These are ACTUAL white supremacists

2018-07-08 18:45:14 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

They give interviews, and if they're big enough then people do listen

2018-07-08 18:45:42 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

You can find the ones from Ali where he talks about being anti-miscegenation

2018-07-08 18:46:35 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

Yeah, it is a bit different when it's just their personal private beliefs that they aren'r forcing on anyone

2018-07-08 18:46:53 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

But still after it coming out I think many would have trouble supporting them in any way

2018-07-08 18:47:51 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

I think it's a question of who runs the league.

2018-07-08 18:48:32 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

If it's some public thing anyone can join and having personal beliefs isn't against the rules then I don't think they should be disallowed

2018-07-08 18:48:54 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

But if it's a private business type thing it's more of a grey area

2018-07-08 18:51:31 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

Yeah, but it's pretty normal to have bad feelings towards someone when they have such extreme beliefs that can spoil your enjoyment of what they produce

2018-07-08 18:52:18 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

Like I listen to a lot of anarcho-communist music, but some of it despite sounding good goes too far and just ruins my ability to enjoy it

2018-07-08 18:52:35 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

I guess that's a bad example

2018-07-08 18:52:41 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

since it's more about the art than the artist

2018-07-08 18:53:52 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

I wouldn't personally hold it against anyone who said "I just like watching their technique"

2018-07-08 19:00:19 UTC [Subverse #debate]  


2018-07-08 19:00:49 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

I don't have to like it, and I don't have to support it, but that doesn't mean they should be stripped of their ability to play a sports

2018-07-08 19:25:50 UTC [Subverse #general]  

I still think it's weird that people care so much about a high schooler's thoughts on politics

2018-07-08 19:27:49 UTC [Subverse #shitposting]

2018-07-08 20:27:43 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

Definitely not destruction of property, but something else like grievous bodily harm makes sense

2018-07-08 20:33:19 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

I thought quickening was supposed to double your move speed and grant one more attack at your highest base attack bonus on full attacks

2018-07-08 20:38:00 UTC [Subverse #general]  

I'm sure the fact that a STAR WARS movie performing so well made some people in the movie industry scared

2018-07-08 20:38:31 UTC [Subverse #general]  

They've been depending on brand recognition to sell tickets for a while now

2018-07-08 20:39:51 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Yeah, I just hope it doesn't swing too far. I don't want to see this shit everywhere I look regardless of which side it is

2018-07-08 20:41:56 UTC [Subverse #general]  

2000: Keep your identity secret so you don't get kidnapped over AOL
2020: Keep your identity secret so you don'g get fired after being an asshole to your customers

2018-07-08 20:42:42 UTC [Subverse #general]  

But I guess then they can't get pats on the back from all of their followers

2018-07-08 20:42:59 UTC [Subverse #general]  

and they won't be able to wield their industry position as a cudgel

2018-07-08 20:46:42 UTC [Subverse #general]  

DC has done a lot better than Marvel recently for sure.

2018-07-08 20:49:52 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

But it's still increasing the length of influence 'you' have on the world

2018-07-08 20:51:58 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

One of the interesting parts of the manga 'Gantz' was when a teleporter malfunctioned and didn't delete the person's body but still recreated it elsewhere, so now they have two of the same person, and only one of them actually gets to keep their normal life

2018-07-08 20:52:29 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

probably got it from them then

2018-07-08 20:54:05 UTC [Subverse #general]  

You can mess with people a lot and they'll ignore it because they've got other shit to worry about, but you can't mess with someone's bread or circus

2018-07-08 20:55:59 UTC [Subverse #general]  

The question is how much of the message got through? Like some of the critics were pushing the idea that this is because it starred a white man

2018-07-08 20:57:36 UTC [Subverse #general]  

At least we have far more grassroots options for consumable entertainment. Even my >60 year old mom is watching less and less TV and more user created content. Just hope Youtube doesn't keep fucking shit up, or someone else takes over

2018-07-08 20:58:34 UTC [Subverse #general]  

I've seen a lot of hardcore Star Wars fans who loved it at first increasingly admitting that they don't like it much anymore

2018-07-08 20:59:03 UTC [Subverse #general]  

I think a lot of people think the Star Wars movies are all good because they love Star Wars instead of loving Star Wars because the movies are good

2018-07-08 21:00:34 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

If it were genetically modified to have no emotions I think it would change quite a bit, but it might be hard to motivate someone like that to work

2018-07-08 21:01:40 UTC [Subverse #general]  

I think Star Wars is a lot like Harry Potter. None of the stories are that special, and the characters aren't particularly deep, but the universe is what's special about it.

2018-07-08 21:02:18 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

I think there's a fair argument for it not being human, but that if they think and feel like a human does then they deserve all the same rights

2018-07-08 21:02:54 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

and really in that case I'd still want to call them human when not discussing biology

2018-07-08 21:03:09 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

Sociopaths have emotions

2018-07-08 21:03:55 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

They do too

2018-07-08 21:04:18 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

But really what is 'human' is more about definition than anything else. There's no clear line where one animal becomes another

2018-07-08 21:04:49 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

But how different do the genetics have to be?

2018-07-08 21:05:02 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

Humans have variability in all of those cases

2018-07-08 21:05:20 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

That's the same thing worded differently

2018-07-08 21:05:43 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

how so?

2018-07-08 21:06:45 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

But then vegetables aren't human(or aren't deserving of rights if that's what you mean)

2018-07-08 21:07:38 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

Yeah, but similarity is just a measurement of difference where you look for smaller amounts of difference

2018-07-08 21:07:50 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

Humans are quite similar to many animals

2018-07-08 21:08:23 UTC [Subverse #debate]  


2018-07-08 21:08:46 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

but either way you put it there's no clear line in how similar you have to be to still be considered a human

2018-07-08 21:10:16 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

but evolution is often a very slow change, and what's seen as anatomically modern human today may vary from those 300 years from now

2018-07-08 21:13:02 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

We didn't evolve from monkeys

2018-07-08 21:13:07 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

we share a genetic ancestor with them

2018-07-08 21:14:52 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

That's part of why I think it's not a good idea to create concrete definitions of what is human and what is not. Dehumanization is a very dangerous thing.

2018-07-08 21:15:06 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

Also I think it's just not really possible to do with the way biology works

2018-07-08 21:15:34 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

Depends on whether you're defining humanity by body/mind/spirit

2018-07-08 21:16:14 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

Personally I'd say no, but if they are of human intelligence then I'd say they deserve to be treated as humans

2018-07-08 21:16:54 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

Well yeah I'd be willing to say something isn't a human, but to make an exact definition of 'this is a human anything that differs is not human' is where I think it gets fuzzy and dangerous

2018-07-08 21:20:11 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

I think there's a difference in what is biologically human, and something 'having humanity'

2018-07-08 21:20:59 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

but I wouldn't want to give exact definitions on either since people will use those labels to say 'this person lacks it' to justify doing awful things to them

2018-07-08 21:23:21 UTC [Subverse #general]  

I would think because of the caricature of a Hasidic Jew manipulating everything

2018-07-08 21:23:47 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Why are 40+ channels posting it?

2018-07-08 21:25:47 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Look at the way he's dressed

2018-07-08 21:26:35 UTC [Subverse #general]  

the character 1 minute into the video

2018-07-08 21:27:57 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Because it goes against their terms of service

2018-07-08 21:28:15 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Because they have an automated system that can catch when someone is spamming the site with the same video

2018-07-08 21:29:17 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Because as you've said someone is spamming the site with it 40+ times

2018-07-08 21:34:54 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Neat. I'd love to visit just to look at the architecture if for nothing else

2018-07-08 21:36:39 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

A moderate amount of poisons CAN be good for you. Medicines are essentially poisons. A poison is just something that interacts with the body to throw it out of balance so to speak. But when the body is already out of balance that poison can swing things back towards the middle

2018-07-08 21:37:28 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

But yeah I'm skeptical of fluoride being a good thing to add to the water just for the purpose of dental hygiene

2018-07-08 21:40:05 UTC [Subverse #general]  

There's what, like 5 popes per square mile of vatican city?

2018-07-08 21:51:15 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

I only smoke crack recreationally.

2018-07-08 21:51:20 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

And to help me get started with my day

2018-07-08 21:51:24 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

And to help me get to sleep

2018-07-08 21:51:33 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

And for social purposes

2018-07-08 21:52:46 UTC [Subverse #debate]  

And for forgetting the side effects that are hurting me more in the long term

2018-07-08 21:55:45 UTC [Subverse #bot-commands]  

@Nine Yep

2018-07-08 23:48:57 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Thank god for the self checkouts. I don't want the gamestop experience when I'm just trying to get some toothpaste

2018-07-08 23:50:16 UTC [Subverse #general]  

oh no

2018-07-08 23:58:49 UTC [Subverse #general]  

What, are they making some weasel wordy statement like 'yeah the value of it went up, but people's trust in its future value has gone down' or are they just flat out lying?

2018-07-09 00:18:43 UTC [Subverse #general]  

It's annoying that 'conservative' has right wing connotations

2018-07-09 00:19:19 UTC [Subverse #general]  

There are a lot of laws with left wing values that have been around for a while and should be conserved

2018-07-09 00:19:33 UTC [Subverse #general]  

Depends on who you ask

2018-07-09 00:20:22 UTC [Subverse #general]  

But when most people hear 'conservative' they think right wing christianity

2018-07-09 00:24:14 UTC [Subverse #general]  


2018-07-09 00:24:51 UTC [Subverse #general]  

But if you dare say that in most places someone will pretend you're talking about the Libertarian party rather than libertarian values

2018-07-09 00:27:18 UTC [Subverse #general]  

I got called a 'radical individualist' by a family member recently for saying that splitting everyone up by race to determine privilege is a poor way to do things because it's going to create division and does a poor job at accurately predicting an idividual's experiences
