If your making $10 an hour, one hour every year your working for Israel for free
The entire population doesn’t pay taxes
@Rick Want some rage inducing financial numbers? Look up the cost of the Great society act
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
I never got what 'Savitri Devi' saw in those people... Loopy lady.
well most Syrians _did_ go to Turkey instead of Sweden
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
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
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.
Shoot me a PM and I will try to respond in a timely fashion!
I don't think I'm actually in that one haha
I know of none of these servers
@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."
How everyone doing tonight
Pretty well, home dog 🐕
Doing okay. I strained me'back a bit yesterday on the barbell row, so I skipped my off-day sprints. Feeling a bit restless
Dude I haven’t hit the gym in weeks
I’ve been fasting though
Diet has always been my weakness
fasting from Hunger
Im about to slap you upside the head...real fast.
you could just not eat much food
which'd be infinitely more of a pain than a straight fast
Eating all my food in an 8 Hour window
Basically skipping breakfast and not eating late
And consuming heaps of water
lads what's our opinion on vidya?
You'll get the "vidya is degenerate" crowd, and plenty of gamers (casual or otherwise)
I think as long as the vidya is played in moderation, it's fine.
like anything, really.
Computer games are great as long as you still make time to work out and read
