  1. Imagine posting in a thread featuring Biggie and BlueAngel and demonstrating FAR less emotional intelligence than either one.

  2. Keep in mind this is likely the same Republican playbook that they've been using for years and that Trump super charged. You don't have to prove you're right, you just have to sling shit until some people can't tell who is right, and others can use it as an excuse to believe what they wanted to believe anyway. It's just that we've never really seen it applied to something like a near statewide recount before. So it feels new. It's all a pretext to justify voter restriction, but I noticed in just the past day or two there is a rift forming even among the Trump wing. Lindsey Grahmn said yesterday he accepted the election results, but reading everything he said I think the difference becomes clear. Republicans want to use this recount and the outrage of 2020 to win in 2022. Trump and his true believers seem to hold some delusion of actually overturning the 2020 election and imagine some path to actually installing him back in the White House in the next year or two. Some Republicans are starting to realize Trump is serious about this. And I think they realize if Trump goes all in on this specific delusion it could result in 2020 being a Georgia type own goal, but on a massive scale.

  3. I hope the helicopter carrying him crashes into the smaller yacht he needs to access this larger yacht, which then somehow crashes into the bigger yacht, which then sinks.

  7. Remember that weird announcement from the Trump administration that Kodak was somehow going to manufacture pharmaceuticals to fight COVID? Well... Eastman Kodak says New York preparing insider-trading lawsuit WWW.REUTERS.COM The New York attorney general’s office is preparing an insider-trading lawsuit against Eastman Kodak Co (KODK.N) and its top executive, focusing on stock purchases that preceded an ill-fated deal with the Trump administration to finance a pharmaceutical venture during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the company and people familiar with the matter.

  11. The only “skill” is your natural aptitude for something, and if your aptitude is for cleaning toilets or teaching children you get fucked. No society is made up entirely of doctors and engineers, so what the fuck are we doing here? We used to pay people a middle class wage for stamping sheet metal together.

  12. My mom is someone who was worried about taking the vaccine. Not because she is an anti-vaxxer or Trumper. In fact, the past year and Trump's response to Covid really changed her from being a "dislikes both sides" kind of person to a "Republicans are fucking crazy and I like Joe and Kamala" type person. No, she was hesitant just because she is a worrier about all things. I decided to have her come with me when I got my shot because I figured seeing me get it would push her over the hump to get it. And glad to say she did. We had some horrible timing because she retired RIGHT before things went insane last year(literally, her last day was March 15th) so she even thanked me for convincing her to get it because she feels like after the second dose she can finally really start and enjoy being retired. I tell this story mostly because I enjoyed joking with her that I imagined her in the Pharmacy section of Krogers having a reaction like Marge trying to fly.......

  15. I am definitely right It is important to look at why certain people don’t like the strategy. It pretty much all boils down to the fact that there are things we don’t know. But not knowing definitively is very different from not knowing what is more probable. The reason why is that public places are not the primary way in which the virus is propagating. There is a reason that major family holidays were followed by big upswings in cases. The virus needs time + proximity more than anything else.

  29. Prioritizing single dosing for most population groups is the right solution mathematically to stamp out the pandemic in the short run, double dosing is what you need to end future flare ups. Canada is doing the right thing.

  32. Just finished Blindsight by Peter Watts. Wow. It's a story about first contact, and human consciousness. It specifically deals with the issue that in most pieces of fiction, aliens are at worst just humans with weird bumps or colours...or at best, analogues of other Earth animals (insect-like, etc). But what if they are so different from us that we have no basis for communication and comprehension? No common ground for any shared experience, except that we both exist? It heavily deals with themes of self-awareness (consciousness), psychopathy, and survival in a cruel universe. It is the best first contact story I have ever read.

  33. By all means, keep doing your thing, especially if it helps you in any way. It's just that sometimes I have a hard time telling if these topics are you being real and genuinely looking to spark honest conversation of sensitive issues, or if you're leaning into some kind of character.

  36. Thought this thread was going to be about actual techno metal not industrial metal / nu-metal / not even metal like this And yes I remember those bands because I still enjoy a great majority. Rammstein released an album two years ago. Static-X are one of my favorite bands. RIP and they also released an album last year sans Wayne, it was ok. You also had Limp Bizkit on TRL for fucks' sake. Your point being?
