Iran arrests 260 people for spreading 'satanism and nudity'
  • Yeah if only they had their own secular, democratically elected leaders. And maybe those leaders could even decide to nationalize their oil.

    What could possibly go wrong for them?

  • Pro-Palestine demonstrators in Portugal assaulted by Israeli tourists
  • Where did I judge these people by their nation state? I'm judging them based on their actions.

    This behavior is very reminiscent of the behavior of Israeli "settlers" in the West Bank, and I was pointing out that comparison.

    I judge the nation of Israel, which is democratic with mandatory conscription (i.e. brainwashing every Israeli adult into believing Palestinians are literally subhuman) for creating these people. But in a democratic system, the people aren't entirely blameless.

    And no it's not the same as Hitler, he was (barely) elected and then seized power and did away with the democracy, so it's not like the German people could have just voted him out (not that they would have).

    We (humans) have already settled this anyway. Read The Banality of Evil to understand why the German people are absolutely not blameless, and it's perfectly acceptable to criticize them as individuals.

  • Judge blocks Biden administration rule capping credit card late fees at $8
  • US District Judge Mark T. Pittman, an appointee of former President Donald Trump

    This is where we share reaping what we sowed with the long term secondary and tertiary damage from electing Donald Trump (and by extension, giving the Federalist Society carte blanche to re-form the judiciary in their hateful, spiteful image). They will continue to happen for decades to come (and will often be blamed on the liberals/progressive currently in power because they'll be the only ones trying to do anything to fix it).

    The future's looking bright, guys

  • Platforms wonder why piracy is spiking
  • Rotten Tomatoes will usually say where it's streaming. Or a quick Google search of "(TV show) where streaming" will get you there. At least it used to, Google is shit these days so who knows.

  • Platforms wonder why piracy is spiking
  • Depending on her age of course... But you can find SRT (subtitle) files for literally almost everything, often in dozens of languages. They're super tiny too since it's basically just a txt file

  • I initially made the same mistake... "Surely it was too lovey-dovey to not be Jesus. No way it's that racist, jealous, petty Yahweh..."

    But nope, Leviticus

  • It also teaches you how to treat your slaves.

    Could have very easily had said, "slavery is evil, stop doing it," but nope.

    Makes you wonder how many fewer people would be Christian nowadays if it was outspokenly anti -slavery. Interesting thought.

  • Pro-Palestine demonstrators in Portugal assaulted by Israeli tourists
  • Yeah the god old the old testament is brutal, and honestly a real piece of shit.

    Why would I want to worship a god who openly admits to being controlled by such petty human emotions as jealousy? Fuck that, I've been in shitty relationships before.

  • Try living under violent, oppressive, ethno-nationalist, colonialist, apartheid for 80+ years and see what options you and your family might be willing to consider.

    Also add in the direct monetary support from Likud and Netanyahu to prop them up as the only viable option.

  • Only about ~30% actually voted for Hitler if memory serves.

    Not that it makes it ok, but...

  • Pro-Palestine demonstrators in Portugal assaulted by Israeli tourists
  • Israeli "settlers" have been stealing land from Palestinian families that have lived there for generations. For decades.

    I agree that Jewish people as a whole aren't guilty, but the type that go into other people's homes, on other people's land in other people's countries are the same type that carry AR-15s when marching into a village in the West Bank to say, "this is mine now." Fuck those people.

    It's ok to call the Proud Boys shit without damning the entire US population.

  • [Solved] Tumbleweed update killed my gaming
  • Any reason to use it over Timeshift? Or same basic concept?

  • Pro-Palestine demonstrators in Portugal assaulted by Israeli tourists
  • Careful, they might try to steal your home while they're there.

  • High levels of weedkiller (glyphosate/e.g. Roundup) found in more than half of sperm samples, study finds
  • Meh, this is just the free market in action. Now after decades of "collateral damage," the market can correct itself. People will stop using the offending brand(s) because everyone needs to be an expert on literally everything or else they too can become collateral damage while the market "corrects." It's their own fault really.

    And in this case, customers will stop using companies and services that use RoundUp, because again, they need to know everything including what chemicals that the contractor their town hired uses in the public park. And then lobby them to switch to a (likely more expensive) alternative.

    Come on, that's just capitalism, guys smh

  • Engine Bursts Into Flames on Boeing Plane With 468 Aboard
  • Why would it being a maintenance problem make it any better at all?

    "Don't worry guys, the planes aren't inherently defective, we're just not maintaining them correctly!"

    Super comforting.

  • I'm finally getting the hang of Sekiro
  • For sure. The game can be beat without prosthetics at all if that's your bag. I personally found it fun to mix it up with some of the mini boss fights and some of the harder "regular fights". I don't think it takes anything away from the satisfaction, because they really aren't that effective even when you max them out.

  • 5 Israeli soldiers killed by friendly fire in northern Gaza
  • but little actual war experience.

    Do you think this is the first time they've gone to war against Palestine? You might have some history to catch up on.

  • Video Game Execs Are Ruining Video Games
  • Meanwhile, a potential game of the year, Animal Well, was made by one dude and put out by a publishing company started by a goofy YouTuber.

  • [No Spoilers-FFVII: Rebirth] No specific event to spoil, I just think Chadley (FFVII Remake & Rebirth) is a pompous little shit.

    No spoilers for me neither, since I'm still playing Rebirth... I just felt the urge to talk about how much this little prick gets on my nerves....

    Anyone else? Or is it just me?

    Having a blast with the game either way... But fuck Chadley.
