Ok that makes a lot of sense, thanks

Can someone comment on the actual validity of what Comic guy is accusing Musk is doing, re abusing subsidies and whatever that was about the inflating the market cap to keep public control away??

I have no idea what’s going on there but it’s a lot more important than “surprisingly” unprofessional discourse on social media

That’s wild. Congrats and good game cough you heartless bastard.

I’d love to kick off another game though for whoever is up for it.

edit: I can't declare a Hubski IV without mk's blessing, but it looks like we got some interest for a rematch.

I shared this as a noteworthy change of pace, I don't think this guy is any more a competent leader than the previous one. But idealism is a valuable trait for Armenian people right now.

Hope so! I think I was just due for my biweekly political-existential crisis.

My deepest, greatest fear for the United States is when this administration passes, we will have no motivation to raise the bar again and our country will forever have absolutely no expectations for a standard of authority and leadership.

I know we've had dumb Presidents before, but I haven't lived through them to know just how dumb everything was. In hindsight I'm probably being naive in thinking that the characteristics of the individual have any influence on their election in the first place.

Let's hear it for the back of the room that loses all their shit all the time and finally learned to buy cheap shit that's easily replaceable!!!

I've been rocking this $14 digital watch from Amazon for 2 years now and I'm on my third one! You can wear it to the field, to class, to the pool, and to bed, and nobody will ever care to steal it off your wrist (but probably you lost it) while you're at a party in high school like the $300 watch your mom gave you for your 18th birthday!

One day, though, one day. When it's not cool anymore, I'll have a Tesla. Or a civic. Either way it'll last forever and if I lose it then I know it got stolen.

Wish I had a badge to bump this up. This is the gold standard of a profile piece.

    No military force can end terrorism, just as firefighters can’t end fire and cops can’t end crime. But there are ways to build a resilient society. “It can’t be on a government contract that says ‘In six months, show us these results,’ ” Skinner said. “It has to be ‘I live here. This is my job forever.’ ” He compared his situation to that of Voltaire’s Candide, who, after enduring a litany of absurd horrors in a society plagued by fanaticism and incompetence, concludes that the only truly worthwhile activity is tending his garden. “Except my garden is the Third Precinct,” Skinner said.

Fuckin' A.

    For instance, when people anonymously ask the internet if they might possibly be abusive towards their partner because they fear they may be, dollars to donuts every time that if there is a power imbalance in the relationship, it's not in favor of OP.

Can you explain what you mean by this? Are you saying that if someone asks for outside perspective on their relationship cause they fear they might be abusive, it's usually them being the victim?

Nothing to actually contribute here, just think this is a great breakdown of how it all came to a head. I find it so difficult to look at internet fuckery in real-world light when comparing SRS to the Bolsheviks would certainly just return confused looks.

Unrelated, my CO was PSYOP and came here almost immediately after deployment. We try not to make eye contact with him in case he decides to read our minds, put thoughts in our heads, or "Men Who Stare at Goats" us.

I was trying my best to remain your opponent while also tipping you off to the impending doom.

Haha of course not. This was fun and I learned a lot about the mechanisms of movement so I won't waste turns on botched operations next time.
