17 year olds are hurting for jobs, and they are doubling down on sports, after school activities etc to build a portfolio to get accepted into a scholarship program. These kids no have any money, and fuckwits like Brooks are shaking their fists at the sky demanding they be like they were in the 60's. The license itself is cheap, but the car, insurance, gas et al is expensive.

The model is moving towards fewer ads with a higher cost per view. Ads so saturate the environment now that people are tuning out the messages.

Funny that the CALM act was in direct response to that on television. No such rule for internet video.

    I know that it signifies me as an Internet SJW by saying this, but I'll fuckin' say it: /b/ is an attractive nuisance

That statement makes you a thinking human being with a working brain; I hang out in 4chan and 8chan and I hate /b/. /b/ was always the shitpost containment board. /pol/ is a joke inside a comedy wrapped in the tragedy that there are people taking it seriously. (fun fact about /pol/? I know a Jewish guy who posts in there as a flaming neonazi. he thinks its hilarious and takes the bite out of the horror of racism. not sure I agree.) The tech boards like /v/ /g/ /sci/ all developed a culture that created a high cost of entry that kept out a lot of the undesirables. The thing about /b/ is that the goons descended into the board and used it to wage wars on each other.

4chan, and all the chan boards serve a purpose. Knowing what they are going in, and having the think skin and solid sense of "not giving a fuck" are the only requirements. Not everyone should go there. Hell there are people here I'd warn in loud, steady tones that they should avoid Chans.

The Internet was so much better before they allowed the normies access.

You know I was going to write something here but fuck it. The guy's other writings scream "I don't get it" and it fits. 4Chan is the whipping boy when most of the really evil shit done was by Something Awful Goons (and it should shock nobody with an internet history that this author is a goon). The guy wrote 10,000 words on what a hipster is.

All I will say here is that if you see an article on 4Chan by someone outside of Chan culture, that article is almost always wrong.

When I snap and cash out and build my 500-700 square foot house in the middle of nowhere, I am going with 2x6 construction.

We build stuff as cheap as possible in this country. All it has to do is last longer than the litigation and its a win. Moving from 2x4 to 2x6 and proper interunit fireproffing solves a lot of the noise issues. And the place is stronger better insulated, more energy efficient and the people inside will not wage wars over noise.

I've lived in shitty apartments, places that should have never been built in the first place. The house I am in now was built in the 50's and will outlast most of the commercial property I've seen built in the last 10 years.

I heard a term on 4chan that described something I enjoy. Technical Death Metal

There is a ton of it, most if it in not shit. This pleases me.

    Dude. That's a poll of 14-18 year olds asking if they preferred Trump or Clinton.

Crap wrong article. Queue the "I have a meme image" here.

The poll I was looking at was kids born in 1995-1997. Those kids are sophomores and juniors in college now. trying to find now

This is going to be the real Obama Legacy. The kids coming in after the Millennials are turning libertarian and conservative (Note one of many of these articles all different polling) and there is a legitimate fear in my mind that the liberals have lost the nation for a generation. These are people who are being told on a daily basis that there won't be social security and are being hammered with Climate Change Denial. Fewer of them as they come of age will go onto college I think as well. If they end up center left, I'd be fine with that. Else they can read about streams and rivers in history books

    Critically, the Movement 2.0 team envisioned AFO as a tax-exempt organization that would operate free of the Democratic National Committee.

And History repeats its self. This article is about Dean and the DNC where the old party guys, including a lot of the Clinton people, HATED Howard Dean. Dean, but the way dropped out of the DNC fight because the DNC is frucking broken rotten and a waste of time and money for anyone that wants to fight.

Eleven fucking years ago, nope not bitter and angry at all. Dems are going to lose 5-7 Senate Seats and at least two governors in 2018. They are going to lose at least one more statehouse. And come 2020 when it is time for the Census and redistricting, you will cry in vain for the shitshow we have now compared to what is coming.
