adamatari: Cats are almost as easy to train as dogs, most people just don't bother. Seriously.


I tried teaching my cat to make souvenir prize replicas of its butt.
It was a catastrophe

drayno76: Hickory-smoked: austerity101: These people need to be deprogrammed.  Literally nothing else will help them.  Literally.

I think legalizing psychedelic therapy is the first step.

If that fails, electro-shock.

People usually think "authoritarianism" is bad, but at some point we really do need the government to step in and fix things.  That is the only way this country will survive.  We can save these people, but it's gonna take a real strong hand.

In other words, we're screwed, because the Democrats will never, ever, ever let that happen.  Ever.


Mmmmmm... nah. Let's just give them their own landlocked country then close the borders and wait.

austerity101: Also, the government has a very significant interest in not letting fascist propaganda and hate speech spread, and so those forms of speech, like in most of the first world, should absolutely be severely curtailed.  Popper knew about this nearly 90 years ago.  We have to restrict hate speech and propaganda.  We have to.


And where do you draw the line at what qualifies?  Because the real issue isn't censoring the fascists - the issue is the people who will start labeling everything they don't like as fascism to get it censored.  And keep in mind that we already live in a world where major government and corporate policies get dictated by Twitter/Tublr trolls who already label everything and everyone they disagree with about literally anything as racist/Nazi/___-phobia.  Do you really want to give those twats even more power?

Too stupid to save. Let them drown in their own fat. Let's stop fighting the Republicans and let them make health insurance illegal for a while and let all these wasted skin sacks die off.

alienated: schecter: alienated: hat is a giant puzzle box. Inside a maze, inside an Escher picture.
I am a fan of alternate history, but that is so many pieces set in play.
I mean, I can do so many small calculations that work towards an end goal / sum, but. wow.
I am not a supercomputer who would need about 3 weeks of spare time to produce even half an answer.
I will say that Britain at the very least, abolished slavery before America.

You have stumped me, and I cannot answer that.

Janeway: Time travel. Since my first day on the job as a Starfleet captain I swore I'd never let myself get caught in one of these godforsaken paradoxes - the future is the past, the past is the future, it all gives me a headache.

I rarely post this, but, well, it seems fitting
