  1. Hullo again. *boop* :3

      I've been doing alright, been enjoying life, especially with @Kamii

      How have you been doing?

  2. When it comes to the far left and the far right, I take no sides.

  3. Iceland, my country, has one of the worst songs for Eurovision this year~

  4. Anyone here heard of The Jeremy Kyle Show? That pile of filth has a long history of exploiting the poor and sick to make a profit (both here during its brief run and in the U.K. since 2005), and the vile audience is no better. It’s mainstream bullying in the form of a “talk show.”

    Yesterday, a guest diagnosed with depression committed suicide four days after the recording of an episode revealing him fail a lie detector test. In response, the show’s been suspended and pulled all episodes (including this one, which hasn’t aired yet). The fact that it took a man taking his own life to pull this filth is downright infuriating. I don’t care how popular it is or was. It’s exploitative and should’ve been pulled LONG AGO!

    Heartbreaking. Prayers to the man’s family. :( 

  5. I like how rich people lie when they complain about paying so much in taxes. I've heard about nonsense about the government taking all of their money away, and all of this s***.

     

    There never was anything REMOTELY close to a 90% tax bracket, but sometimes it's almost like they deserve it. Not saying it would be a good idea, but it would seem like poetic justice in an odd,  and kind of funny sense. :laugh: (I say 90% because I've heard that before multiple times, and it's totally ludicrous).

      Similar to Iceland then.

      And aye, but I can understand someone feeling frustrated over losing nearly half of what they earn. It is almost they are losing more than they are left with. But yeah, I don't mind a progressive tax at all~

      Well, here in Iceland, the highest brackets are paying nearly 50%. What is the highest it has gotten there?

  7. Someone saw fit to make it even more cursed.

  8. I have been listening to the song '' Up on Melancholy hill '' of the group '' Gorillaz '' for several days at the same time that I have been feeling bad for several personal reasons ... I wanted to capture all that in a more or less personal drawing, little by little the sadness was turning into a world of dreams and magic ... this was the result ... honestly I hope it is to your liking! It has served as an outlet.

  10. If I remember correctly, you are a Shia muslim. What is your opinion on Alawites?

    1. JonasDarkmane

      JonasDarkmane

      I read through the pages that you suggested. It was quite illuminating and interesting. 

      My favorite take from the Alawis though:
      "If they are not faithful, they will be reborn as Christians as a punishment." 

       

      What a religious dunk! :P

      From what I have been reading in that chat, even Alawites split into what seems to something called Nusayris and Bektashi Sufis. 

      Spoiler

      I liked 'maes' take on page 3

      So your take was mainly Qa'im? It was quite interesting. But does that mean that considering you are a Zaydi, you don't consider them to be Shia because they are "Ghulats" (I do not know what that term means)?

      But I get ya, it is pretty complicated. From what I had already gathered before looking more into things, I saw Alawites (at least in Syria) being separate from Shia, Sunnis and Ibadis considering they are kinda treated that way (like was visible in the hot debates happening on that forum). I've been paying a lot of attention to the Civil War going on in Syria, to the battles, to the politics and geopolitics and to the religious conflict going on and seeing how the culture over there is shaping and whether this sect of Islam will become more close with Shia Islamism in the future~

  11. The Alt-Right, the progressive SJWs, and everyone else in between warned him that this was coming. Sargon has said things in the past that when taken out of context are pretty fucked up. This is a good test of whether all publicity is good publicity. I just hope that if he loses, Carl's personal and professional reputation can be salvaged. I dab on him a lot, but I don't hate the guy.

      I think it will hurt him more. The way he talks and acts may be attractive to a certain set of people on the internet and to young people, but that is not the choir he is trying to reach in the South West of England.

  12. I know that this probably is gonna sound stupid, but I miss the days when hentai wasn't a symbol of terrorism.

    1. JonasDarkmane

      JonasDarkmane

      You mean hentai or anime? There is a difference. 

      It also isn't an objective symbol for terrorize, just like Pepe and Honk are actually not right wing or alt-right. 

       

      May I ask why you feel that way? Do you feel like some people have spoiled the image of something you used to like/enjoy?

  13. Crazy far-right internet user: Socialism never works!

    Me: Norway and Switzerland use democratic socialism and they work fine.

    Crazy far-right internet user: No they aren't! They're capitalist societies with increased taxes!

    Me: Okay! Let's just do what they're doing!

    Crazy far-right internet user: NO!! THAT'S SOCIALISM!!

    Me: :orly:

     

    1. JonasDarkmane

      JonasDarkmane

      They are Social Democrats, not Democratic Socialist. They are nowhere near being on that kind of level.

      I did not, but I did yell out to someone who had an anti-Farage sign. Can't barrage the farrage~

  15. think i've finally cleared up my internal struggle relating to this site so im putting back the old name 

  16. The takeaway from the Mueller report seems to be that Trump and his campaign engaged in some shady but non-criminal behavior. Good news for him legally, bad news for his re-election campaign. 

     

    1. JonasDarkmane

      JonasDarkmane

      I'm going to disagree there. Never underestimate the Democrats ability to fuck up and play directly into Trump's hands (which they have been doing since the release of the report).

  17. I know it's probably not a good idea to get my idea of society off of the comments sections of YouTube... but still.

    1. JonasDarkmane

      JonasDarkmane

      You are right, it is not a good idea to get your idea of society from the comment sections of youtube. 

  18. This is objectively the best crossover of all time and all other opinions are wrong.

    1. JonasDarkmane

      JonasDarkmane

      Well, I don't really know if most Conservatives are religious or not, but that does not seem like an intellectually dishonest thing to say. And of course not every liberal is a member of AntiFa. 

      I guess you need to be aware of who you are debating with and what they believe in to be aware of what biases they may show in any kind of debates or discussions.

  20. Is it weird that I currently have a big desire to get a GF who I could set a table with candles and heart shaped donuts for? Isn't that bit oddly specific?
