If your making $10 an hour, one hour every year your working for Israel for free

2018-09-19 00:55:58 UTC  

The entire population doesn’t pay taxes

2018-09-19 00:59:57 UTC  

@Rick Want some rage inducing financial numbers? Look up the cost of the Great society act

2018-09-19 01:00:03 UTC  

True, I thought about that but thought it'd be too marginal to mention, ie only half the population pays taxes it goes to 6 cents a day

2018-09-19 01:14:52 UTC  

I never got what 'Savitri Devi' saw in those people... Loopy lady.

2018-09-19 01:15:04 UTC  

well most Syrians _did_ go to Turkey instead of Sweden

2018-09-19 01:15:19 UTC  

but the Turks have been milking that to use against the EU for... three years now?

High caste Indians (specifically men) are probably the most arrogant group of people I’ve ever encountered

2018-09-19 01:38:43 UTC  

Wrote a rough draft of an essay following my meditations recently on existentialism.

I've been reading the Biblical book of Ecclesiastes and comparing it to Nietzschean thought regarding moralism, existentialism and Nihilism. I'm not a Christian myself (I typically tell people I am a Norse Heathen/Odinist/Asatruar) but I think the Bible and Christian teachings are deeply rooted in European culture/philosophy and the book of Ecclesiastes in particular fascinates me

2018-09-19 01:41:27 UTC  

If anyone wants to read what I've written and discuss, I'd love to talk about it - I'm wanting to revise what I have written and put it in a more formal essay form.

2018-09-19 01:41:41 UTC  

Shoot me a PM and I will try to respond in a timely fashion!

2018-09-19 01:42:09 UTC  

@Gwaihyr sounds like a great topic for the religions server

2018-09-19 01:43:37 UTC  

I don't think I'm actually in that one haha

2018-09-19 01:47:39 UTC  

I know of none of these servers

2018-09-19 01:53:28 UTC  

@Gwaihyr I think @ThisIsChris can get you into the religious server.

2018-09-19 01:54:17 UTC  

@Gwaihyr I've just finished reading the old testament. Life is an enigma that is beyond human ability to solve. As a Catholic, that is more or less what we call "the mystery of faith."

2018-09-19 01:55:18 UTC  

How everyone doing tonight

2018-09-19 01:55:29 UTC  

Pretty well, home dog 🐕

2018-09-19 01:59:33 UTC  

Doing okay. I strained me'back a bit yesterday on the barbell row, so I skipped my off-day sprints. Feeling a bit restless

2018-09-19 02:04:50 UTC  

Dude I haven’t hit the gym in weeks

2018-09-19 02:04:55 UTC  

I’ve been fasting though

2018-09-19 02:05:03 UTC  

Diet has always been my weakness

2018-09-19 02:05:55 UTC  

@Undercover Academic - IL what kind of fast?

2018-09-19 02:06:04 UTC  

hunger fast

2018-09-19 02:06:09 UTC  

fasting from Hunger

2018-09-19 02:06:26 UTC  

Im about to slap you upside the head...real fast.

2018-09-19 02:06:36 UTC  

🐢

2018-09-19 02:06:53 UTC  

you could just not eat much food

2018-09-19 02:07:01 UTC  

which'd be infinitely more of a pain than a straight fast

2018-09-19 02:09:06 UTC  

Intermittent fast

2018-09-19 02:09:14 UTC  

Eating all my food in an 8 Hour window

2018-09-19 02:09:22 UTC  

Basically skipping breakfast and not eating late

2018-09-19 02:09:30 UTC  

And consuming heaps of water

2018-09-19 02:31:04 UTC  

lads what's our opinion on vidya?

2018-09-19 02:31:43 UTC  

You'll get the "vidya is degenerate" crowd, and plenty of gamers (casual or otherwise)

2018-09-19 02:32:25 UTC  

I think as long as the vidya is played in moderation, it's fine.

2018-09-19 02:32:29 UTC  

like anything, really.

2018-09-19 02:34:24 UTC  

Computer games are great as long as you still make time to work out and read
