It's actually about fighting for no reason other than a bunch of treaties got invoked after a prince was shot

It's your right as a website owner to ruin the website

Breaking my exile

I almost died. One doctors said they almost put me on a machine. I had to call 911 and could barely make it down the stairs. Then I fell down in the parking lot while they wheeled out the gurney

All because of a little alcohol withdrawal

Looking forward to the thoughtful conversation this inspires

Good luck with your website that requires a user manual because of the byzantine rules

Are you tired of this place and trying to drive out the few remaining users?

Think I might be done until you stop this

I'm almost always on my phone in global. So that may explain why I'm glib a lot. I've left some pretty long comments from this thing so I feel that's not worth nothing

Digital Pinkertons.

This is fine

A podcast called Behind the Bastards has no business being as good as it is. I've also had some fun with Worst Year Ever

His Twitter is a great resource for what's going on in Portland too

I love Robert Evans. This podcast isn't dissimilar to his work but it does have some sympathy for the Bundy family. Or at least doesn't paint them as out and out assholes. It explains their grievances. But the second season is pretty much just about white nationalists and how the Bundy occupation and Ruby Ridge have influenced them

Thanks for the response

I've had this stuck in my head for like a week after deciding I wanted to write a queer reading of it. Like 90% of the day. This is not unusual for me and has a medical name I can't remember. I basically stopped listening to music for a year because of it

In the general population of the United States?

Edit: it was dumb to tag you guys. Sorry

It's been about a year since I listened to it. Not a lot is fresh in my mind. But I can't imagine how scary it would be to go to an insular city of nazis

I love how he keeps talking about individual mass transit. It reminds me of the running joke in Airheads about the band name being The Lone Rangers

I read an article from the National Review of all places that outlined the charges and a lot of them are based on the mindset of the defendant. In the moment granted but I feel like this is really bad for him. But good for people who don't like vigilante murder

There's also ugly shorts evidence

Sounds bad

Global posts is the only way I use this website

I don't know if I understand your idea. But I think it's fine here. Especially compared to other websites.

I did dip for a while but that was a me problem.

I was thinking about online interactions and I think they're by nature just prone to unique problems

I was also thinking about how for most of history thoughtful interaction was limited to media that took hours-years. The debate me bros like Ben Shapiro think debate is the finest form of logic when it's just an argument. Philosophers would spend years writing long reactions to some argument they disagreed with that they read years after it was written after taking years to write. I don't have an example but you probably catch my drift. And science? Woo buddy

Seems unnecessary given the size of the user base

I exaggerated but yeah

I'm pretty sure I'm on your side and I maybe wasn't clear
