I am sick of this, and Texas constant lone star attitude and Alpha Biatch, we don't need help from anyone attitude. Or the whole "the snow is fake or hoax" idiocy. It's why I will most likely never go to there and Florida even when this pandemic ends.
Well, Texas is being governed terribly, but at least they're not attempting a , complete with that not even made them think over.

Jesus, their egos are so big they are making Vegeta look humble by comparison. "For the first time, control your own destiny."? What a crock of manure. Who are they are trying to fool? Themselves, the citizens, all the other 49 states, and the world? Someone in charge needs a good kicking in the dick or vagina.

One of the greatest fantasy authors in my country, with whom I've been in contact lately, has been considering to quit her career simply because she feels like she's not appreciated. She works hard but she doesn't get anything from it.

I'm sad. Bitter. Literary art is dying. People don't read anymore. They spend their time in Netflix, and majority of the few people who still read, only take on the popular and easygoing bestsellers. It's no coincidence that everyone knows Harry Potter in my country but very few of them have even heard of The Tales of Earthsea. Anyone here who knows the latter and the relation between them sees the ridiculousness.

"Popular books" are getting really far away from "great books". I mean... I've always thought that both Artists and Entertainers are needed in every art, because Entertainers have a great role of making people interested in art, thus making Artist's work possible. Artists, in turn, should be able to provide a next level experience and fuel their art with their unique personality for the few.

Except for now. Some Entertainers are able to make it through, they go with the flow and create anything the audience asks for to keep them interested. Some of them are struggling because art is not respected enough and there's no audience for everyone.
The Artists are quitting because otherwise they'd starve to death.

Sad times.

Well, we have to give them the benefit of the doubt here. I'm sure they and the GOP totally believe in controlling one's own destiny and personal responsibility, especially on the subject of outside of federal mandates, and their supporters and try to "cancel" a business by whatever means in order to punish it over a condition for service they don't like.

I mentioned in the unpopular opinion thread about the Central Park 5 and how they're framed for a rape they didn't commit. For the record, Trump never changed his stance on it, nor did he never go to find the actual rapist who did the crime. as it turns out, the rapist was already in jail for a different crime that involved murder. One day he saw the news in prison, and realize those five boys were in prison for a crime they didn't do. Once he found out, he decided to confess his crime cuz he knew he was never getting out of prison. I find it ironic that in this small moment, this convict had more humanity than Trump, that hack prosecutor, and a majority of the Republican party. I just wish that prisoner had did it sooner, and then those boys wouldn't have been in prison for five years. At least someone bothered to step up and defend them. the guy probably didn't feel guilty for what he did, but he saw no point in someone else paying for his crime so there was some small amount of decency or goodness in this person. Goes to show you how screwed up the court and justice system is; especially when you punished the wrong people or bully them.

The police bill is frightening - especially the rules around the right to protest.

"Severe annoyance". What does that mean? What is the cut-off point? How in the world do you ascertain what is regarded as severe?

Upshot is this: anyone causing a "severe annoyance" can be jailed for up to 10 years.

You can rape someone and get a max of 5.

I can only hope that someone steps up and triggers an early election to get these fools out of power. If Starmer is not just all talk, he should be the one to make it happen.

It's a message. Don't protest. That's basically what they're saying.

Its a Socialist-style law. They want you to stay in your lane, and not make a ruckus.

You will be arrested no matter how far you protested. If you peacefully protest, you'll be arrested anyway. If you violently protest, you'll have felony charges (hence, "severe annoyance.")

We have this here in U.S. but it's mostly "catch and release." Others is when someone was looting, smashing property, burning objects, assault, or other serious crimes. This is done to calm people, but if they're found to have done some crime, they'll stay in jail longer, charged, and "be harassed."

By harass, you are in probation, or house arrest, in which point you get an ankle GPS. You take it off? Harassed again or go back to jail.

You can peacefully protest, it's even in the constitution (Bill of Rights), but if you're smashing things, looting, rioting, and so on... that's grounds for charges.

This law is also in China. But it's not really a law. Police in China will arrest you, torture you, re-educate you or straight up kill you if you protest.

I'm more concerned by the ''chises'' law. Aka covert human intelligence sources. To sanction crime for the sake of covert operation using often unexperienced people or/and those who recruit these people. When I heard it the first time in the house of lords I was surprised right from the start and no arguments for it has me convinced of otherwise. Yeah, I know the idea behind it. To help people who risk their lives to uncover crime and to make them safe from prosecution. Well at least unfounded ones. Then again I can't be convinced that the way they set up the bill is going to work and protect all people it concerns. The more I hear of the arguments against the bill the more concerned I get. Amendments wont do anything to help that.

Yes, thank you. Thank you, pansexual person (i.e. not bi), for telling me, a bi person, what my sexuality is.

Yup, yup...just keep talking over me. No, it's totally cool. I mean, I'd never be so rude as to tell you what your orientation is and isn't, but please, do go on "educating" me on something I've put a lot more time, thought and research into than you. Thank you for reaffirming the idea that pansexuality is somehow superior. You have opened my eyes with your transcendent ways. :cautious: It's a damn good thing you're not the spokes-person for your orientation; I know more than a few that would be embarrassed at your glaring misconceptions.

Gods, sometimes I think I only stay with that group out of sheer spite...

Sounds like you were talking to either a leftist who won't change minds, or an SJW being offended [or at least pretending to] trying to change your sexual orientation. Either way, sounds like a oppressive group.

The funny thing is (well, there's more than one thing, to be honest), that 1) In the few other times this person has attended the group at the same time as me, they've never said or done anything that's irritated me before, and 2) They asked those of us in the group who it applies to how we define it, only to basically talk over us focusing on that "bi equals two" aspect which...well, language evolves, for better or worse. Kind of like how the months of the year (like September and October) used to align with their numerical origins, but changed when July and August were added to the calendar.

I don't think they meant to come off superior, but that's ultimately what they wound up doing. Usually I don't care that much; it's one facet of who I am, and not even in the top five things that first come to mind--but it definitely rubbed me the wrong way on this occasion.

Yes, but its the climate. I don't mean "weather climate" but politics is widespread. You are being oppressed, because they're trying to sterilize your ideas, your orientation, whatnot. So, now YOU have stand up for yourself.

Hoping for a digital revolution once again as I'm disabling my Facebook account. I'm not personally taking part in these online dramas, but only scrolling over them and seeing how grown-up people cannot discuss about ANYTHING without slurs and inappropriate behaviour wears me out. :rolleyes:

Earlier I deleted my both Tumblrs just because it's getting equally consuming when everything seems to be about who has the worst kind of mental diagnoses, who can determine their gender with a wider variety of words*, and some kind of a competition in virtue-signaling with hashtag campaigns (which no one will usually remember after a month or two).
* I'm OK with the concept of gender variety, but if you've taken a proper look in YA Tumblrs, there's a great chance you've seen the problem as well: seems that it's rather a matter of crafting something cool and complex than using for example an already existing word for one's identity. Imo, that kind of approach servers no one, rather it damages the minorities involved.

It's all about drama. I don't need it in my life, I've got an overdose of it a long time ago.

And now I'm just ranting about it here in an equally toxic way. I've been poisoned... No worries, a couple of days without seeing such toxicity and drama is enough to heal me.

In other words,

Web 2.0 was a mistake.

It's the hellish crossover between:

- people filling out their sidebar bios like it's the Census with their full name, exact age, gender, race, what might as well be citizenship status, their sexuality, their different triggers, mental health divergences, how many people are in their family and in their house at any given day, and just generally having no sense or concept of privacy in an age where doxxing someone and connecting their online persona to their real-life self to ruin them for "wrongthink" is as easy as making coffee in the morning,
- people not having a filter or any sense of politeness because they're not used to getting punched in the mouth for talking smack and they're used to treating every site like 4chan/the wild wild west/the badlands/generally lawless places where they can get away with anything, a.k.a. they've never experienced consequences in their life and aren't about to start now, bonus points if they're empowered by the talking heads on TV or in that same socmed platform
- people getting too comfortable at the interconnectedness of the internet and lack of filter and cheap clout via likes/shares, giving them the false impression that they know enough about someone to smack talk at them, make jokes in bad taste, or demand increasingly invasive information from the people they talk to, or even that they know anything about that individual's personality off the net, see also: parasocial relationships
- people who literally do not like to think, in the least, because they let their feeds do the thinking for them and trust that anything that was reblogged, retweeted, or shared by their friends automatically passes the sniff test even if it's a decade-old article with nonsense that was debunked by Snopes 12 different times, because time is a flat circle and the same people who made fun of their own parents and grandparents for being out-of-touch chainmail-spreading boomers this close to falling for a Nigerian Prince scam are the exact same people that believe children are in danger of eating Tide pods and busy spreading the "share/like/retweet this or your mom will die!!!" posts

being locked into websites that no longer have an interest in competently moderating the content that goes into their sites, since proper moderation and culling of low-quality content and misinformation effectively slows down "engagement", where allowing drama and people to get nasty at each other over the internet means things get posted more often, and that's more data for them to harvest in order to bombard their users with more intrusive junk. people are on Twitter and Facebook looking for things to get mad at and if they don't have a target, they'll make one up just to be upset because being angry is like crack now.

I never understood what 2.0 meant to people. When I think of "Web 2.0" is higher security when it comes to coding. Instead it became "Social Media." Ya know, the Facebooks of the world. MySpace was the "birth" of Social Media, but Facebook was the next stepping stone. However what happened is Twitter exploit what Facebook spawned. Twitter was supposed to be a messaging "app." But, what happened next is the co-C.E.O. wanted a different future: A digital Stalin future, where the left would live.
It's the hellish crossover between:

- people filling out their sidebar bios like it's the Census with their full name, exact age, gender, race, what might as well be citizenship status, their sexuality, their different triggers, mental health divergences, how many people are in their family and in their house at any given day, and just generally having no sense or concept of privacy in an age where doxxing someone and connecting their online persona to their real-life self to ruin them for "wrongthink" is as easy as making coffee in the morning,
The concept was innocent. The problem isn't really the platform. The problem was the platform's C.E.O. I mean, Facebook allowed a analytics company to exploit the "information" that's available on the FB platform to make money. Facebook, once it got big - it was looking for money, so it got dirty. I liked the innovative ad service system.

if you were an advertiser, you tell the algorithm "I want this market." It asks you which market you want with respect to what you asked for. So, if you wanted to reach profiles with these attributes: 20 years old, from San Mateo, California. He has a girlfriend he is married to. He graduated from Stanford University, is a leftist loser who writes dumb lefty stories.

They'd come to your page or group or profile.

The algorithm has all these information, but not the way GDPR was introduced or intended as. Facebook was just collateral damage in "The Royals" system's intent to extrapolate money from. The problem is, GDPR crawled down to DMC.org, me and other entrepreneurs who deals with websites.

Twitter ain't innocent in this chaos. At first Twitter was a legitimate Social Media website. It was designed with mobile phones from the start. It was only a SMS website until Twitter came into venture capital. It became a website to have some kind of freedom of speech.

Both was, is intended for something else, but countries all around the world want to interfere in our lives in a way that hurts us.
- people not having a filter or any sense of politeness because they're not used to getting punched in the mouth for talking smack and they're used to treating every site like 4chan/the wild wild west/the badlands/generally lawless places where they can get away with anything, a.k.a. they've never experienced consequences in their life and aren't about to start now, bonus points if they're empowered by the talking heads on TV or in that same socmed platform
This has been around since Forums came around, but that doesn't dissolve that there are assholes in the world. Most people on Twitter don't care that their actions affect your challenges
- people getting too comfortable at the interconnectedness of the internet and lack of filter and cheap clout via likes/shares, giving them the false impression that they know enough about someone to smack talk at them, make jokes in bad taste, or demand increasingly invasive information from the people they talk to, or even that they know anything about that individual's personality off the net, see also: parasocial relationships
Twitter's algorithm encourages this behavior around the time Trump was on the campaign trail. I'm not blaming Trump on this, but Twitter got worse around 2013/4. This is when Twitter became a place where the left destroys people's minds on how everything is.

I just never understood at the time. Isn't the point of creating a company - to make money? Why did they decide to go hard left? Like I said before, the co-C.E.O, Jack Dorsey's right-hand man in Twitter's executive team wanted an echochamber for their people, their ideologies. I never saw Jack Dorsey as the guy that wanted this nonsense. Well, then wasn't he left to clean up the mess after the co-C.E.O left the company? Well, based on the way the mod team continues to moderate, then he's the target now. The U.S. government railed against Dorsey.

I'll come around to this convo later, but I am buzzed right now.

Well said, mate. Well said.

I've got a friend in our writing club who despises social media and both the soul-eating and time-consuming nature of it so much that he has got one of those cell phones that are designed for elderly people. Aka, no internet, no applications, just the ability to text and call people.

That is definitely not the only reason why I look up to him. He is disciplined and skilled, knows the worth of his time and attention, but at the same time he is not unnecessarily arrogant. I've been trying to learn at least something from him.

Don't you just hate it when some one rants and dislikes your one of your favorite shows, and be factually wrong about why they dislike or are inconsistent about it. I am referring to Kill La Kill. He only watched two and a half episode and claim it's bad because there is no animation in the show, or how this one character has no in-between frames (even though he knows intentional and is meant as gag on the animators part). If you are not gonna watch at least the whole season or series, don't make **** up. I did not like Attack on Titan, but at least I was able to watch the first season to judge for myself. This is the video in question that I am ranting about. The rant goes on for about 5 minutes at the start and they move on to something else.

xc_hide_links_from_guests_guests_error_hide_media

KLK ain't perfect, but it's got decent animation, but I like it for the reason similar to DMC. It's how the characters interact and bounce off of each other, and the dubbing is air tight and on point. No feels miscast.

This is why I don't watch Simmon's (part of the Max_Dood/YoVideoGames Stream) solo streams for a reason. He knows some stuff, but there are plenty of times where he acts like he knows everything, when he does not. This is the same dude that claims the Xenoblade games save the JRPG genre. What? I know the AAA was having problems with SE and stuff, but the Persona games exists for a reason. Not to mention, you had plenty of smaller JRPGs or some others ones on PS3/PS4 doing just fine before, during, and after the Xenoblade games. Where the hell he's getting his logic from?

Some time ago I got rid of one type of nightmares, and feel free to think foolish of me, but I think it was a prayer that helped me with it.

Now I'm having another kind of them. It's always about me packing my belongings in my mother's house. In that repetitive dream, I'm not 18 just yet and I can't legally escape and move away 'cause I'm still her property. (This actually never happened because I was taken into custody at the age of 16 anyway, so it's just a dream seasoned with memories and fears.)

Those dreams are horrifying by theme and details. Once again I'm every damn night afraid to go to sleep... but I don't want them to stop. I think there's something I have to figure out about them. Terrified as I am, I want to study them further.

Just that they're kind of torturing stuff to see.

I loved that segment when I first listened to it 20 years ago, and I still love it now.

Whatever Kojima was on at the time, he was still toking it when he made Death Stranding.
People thought it was ridiculous for him to depict a fractured America where people are afraid to make physical contact with each other and those that were able relied on long-distance deliveries to get things of varying levels of importance to them, and then the pandemic happened.
Let's hope he doesn't put any relevant social commentary in Silent Hills or something.
