Atlanta group could defeat all other groups combined

2019-01-28 01:00:38 UTC  

I'm a lot further east then Yakima

2019-01-28 01:00:44 UTC  

@DeusVolk will pull for the entire west coast. Dude’s a beast

speaking of sports leagues I was on a different first date yesterday, and she brought up local bowling league notably existing in these times, and I had an organic, non spergy opportunity to talk about Robert Putnam.

2019-01-28 01:01:35 UTC  

Did she know who he is?

2019-01-28 01:02:06 UTC  

@Will - MD no. I just broadly and succinctly talked about societal atomization.

2019-01-28 01:02:19 UTC  

nice

2019-01-28 01:03:09 UTC  

Isn't there a book called bowling alone?

2019-01-28 01:03:13 UTC  

I have a good feeling about this one.

2019-01-28 01:03:25 UTC  

@Current Ronin yes it is the book I am referring to.

2019-01-28 01:03:30 UTC  

Ohhh

2019-01-28 01:03:56 UTC  

Oft cited by Uncle Jared himself

2019-01-28 01:03:56 UTC  

it's not like Robert Putnam is a white nationalist

2019-01-28 01:04:19 UTC  

He laments his own diversity research lol.

2019-01-28 01:04:24 UTC  

people know his work for reasons totally unrelated to racial politics

2019-01-28 01:04:33 UTC  

Hey not to interrupt the conversation, but are there any admins or something similar here who could answer a question for me?

2019-01-28 01:04:41 UTC  

Yeah I did not give the game away

2019-01-28 01:04:58 UTC  
2019-01-28 01:04:58 UTC  

depends what the question is @danieldaly

2019-01-28 01:05:38 UTC  

@NateDahl76 east coast 💪 💪

2019-01-28 01:05:50 UTC  

is it even worth hiding your political opinions on a date?

2019-01-28 01:05:57 UTC  

it's gonna come out eventually

2019-01-28 01:05:57 UTC  

yes

2019-01-28 01:06:07 UTC  

sure

2019-01-28 01:06:07 UTC  

hmm

2019-01-28 01:06:09 UTC  

*Who dares wake me from my aeonic slumber?*

2019-01-28 01:06:30 UTC  

it's not like you're gonna get married and hide it forever

2019-01-28 01:06:51 UTC  

I just wanted to know as far as dues go, is there a certain date every month we need to send our membership fees or will someone contact us for that?

2019-01-28 01:08:01 UTC  

It’s not hiding, just omit them

2019-01-28 01:08:18 UTC  

Well I did admit to her, when she was understandably critiquing an excess of capitalism in the form of [local issue] that I was neither a pure capitalist nor a communist, that both were materialist ideologies and I prefer approaches that put the community and landbase first.

2019-01-28 01:08:36 UTC  

@NateDahl76 how long you gonna omit them for?

2019-01-28 01:08:39 UTC  

If someone talks politics on a first date they’re weird. Unless it’s essential, like it would be in say Patrick’s case

2019-01-28 01:08:52 UTC  

I never gave my last gf the full range of them, but never lied about them either. She learned most, and in the end almost all, and didn’t care

2019-01-28 01:08:53 UTC  

@danieldaly Should be reflected in your Apollo profile. But our accountant is pretty flexible and as long as you just pay every month you should be fine.

2019-01-28 01:09:55 UTC  

if I was dating, I'd prefer to find someone who is already okay with my views in the first place

2019-01-28 01:10:09 UTC  

I talk about the Great Replacement upon first meeting every person I encounter.

2019-01-28 01:10:15 UTC  

Tbh most women won't be receptive to these things, and as such I think you should focus on building a bond first, and eventually she'll mold to your beliefs. And is Apollo an app @sigruna14 ? I signed up on IEs website, but don't remember Apollo

2019-01-28 01:10:16 UTC  

@Jacob good luck

2019-01-28 01:10:46 UTC  

I am trying the "be normal" thing. It worked! I will continue

2019-01-28 01:10:56 UTC  

@danieldaly I'm talking about the IE member site.

2019-01-28 01:11:12 UTC  

well ya obviously you don't wanna be the guy who always talks about politics
