/dev/random / Re: Happy Thanksgiving!
« on: November 22, 2018, 02:45:47 AM »
Apparently, some 20 or so years ago, a bunch of people who wore nothing but catholic priest suits and sported blunderbusses got together with some pakistanis or indians or something and they all ate some Butterball deli turkey and Stove Top stuffing mix...

Oversimplification... obviously.

Ready for some knowledge?

Since white folks started showing up on the east coast, they sometimes celebrated what has now come to be known as Thanksgiving. It was never an official holiday with an official date, and not everyone observed it every year. It wasn't until 1863 in the middle of the Civil War when Union President Abraham Lincoln declared the last Thursday in November to be "Thanksgiving", a celebration of the Union victories in the war.

So OBVIOUSLY, we in the south didn't give a shit to celebrate Lincoln's success, nor did we really receive a weekly newsletter from the yankees telling us all the latest gossip in the north. But after the war, like many things, it was effectively shoved down the throats of southerners and now... WHOOP-TEE-DOO, WE GETS A HOLIDAY CELEBRATING THE ARMY IN THE WAR THAT KILLED OUR SONS. And while I'll typically shit all over Lincoln for being the stubborn asshole that refused to allow the south to have it's independence, at least he had the decency to veto the Wade-Davis bill before he got capped and shuffled off this mortal coil.

Fast forward about 80 years,...

It wasn't until a few weeks after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor that President Roosevelt changed the date to the FOURTH Thursday in November (not the LAST Thursday anymore).

Anyway...

HAPPY TURKEY DAY!

And as always, fuck Lincoln.

(For more on why Abraham Lincoln was such a piece of shit, be sure to pick up a copy of "Lincoln Unmasked: What You're Not Supposed to Know About Dishonest Abe" by Thomas DiLorenzo.)

Dunno if you've ever seen It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, but that show is pretty funny and completely nuts. The current season is kinda... meh. And the first season of the show didn't have Danny Devito, and it was okay. But all the seasons after the addition of Danny Devito are pretty insane. It's not necessarily one of those shows you HAVE to watch in order from the very beginning... but it helps because they often have running jokes and recurring themes.

Fawlty Towers is another show I watched on Netflix lately. Starring John Cleese from the old Monty Pythons Flying Circus show. About a guy who runs a hotel somewhere in rural Britain. Funny as hell, and sadly they only ever made a total of 12 episodes. Really funny show though.

/dev/random / Whatcha streaming?

Recently jumped on the bandwagon and signed up for one month of Netflix, but really it's 2 months, because you get the first month free. I got the 2 screens with HD package for 10.99.

Not sure if I'm gonna keep it. There's lots of things on there, but kinda like my Dish 500 package I have currently, it's lots of... uh... shit nobody wants to watch. If I get really bored, I'll start flip flip flipping and come to the "rural" channel where they play shit like Waltons re-runs and fucking cattle auctions. How god damn bored do you have to be to watch pre-recorded cattle auctions on the rural channel. Well... as bored as ME sometimes, apparently. :D So clearly I need something like Netflix in my life.

Some interesting things I've streamed on there lately...

The 10 part Ken Burns docuseries The West. It's pretty much a 16-or-so hour lesson in how completely and totally fucked the Native Americans were as more and more of the continent became the United States of America. Also kinda weird to look around at what America IS at this very moment and realize that ALL OF THIS was puked out onto the landscape in a very short span of 150+ years. Kinda depressing. But educational too. It explains lots of the main things one might see about Native Americans in American History textbooks, but it also leaves out a lot.

Another 10 part Ken Burns docuseries, The Civil War. An excellent series for anyone these days who "thinks" they have an educated opinion about the Civil War. Especially today, one of the most forgotten and misunderstood wars in our history, and yet still the most important one. These days people prefer to overgeneralize and equate the Confederacy with Nazism. Not even close. Not going to get into my deeper opinions on the matter because it would take too long. But in essence, too few of todays younger folks understand the motives of the common man who fought in the war.

Altered Carbon season 1 (10 episodes). Kinda good. Kinda weird at times. Very Bladerunner-ish. Not really as imaginative as it could've been.

Also... I was pretty excited to see this one on there...

Chill with Bob Ross. :yessign:



It's a collection of 20 or 30 something episodes from his 80's and 90's PBS tv show The Joy of Painting. I know a lot youngsters these days think Bob Ross is some kinda joke. But I was always into drawing and art kinda shit as a youngster back in the late 80s and early 90s, and I actually used to enjoy watching his painting shows,... and still do. It's just cool to see how he could take a palette with about 8 or 9 colors on it and make a vivid painting of a landscape in about 25 minutes.

 :WTF: Ben Shapiro is not racist... not even a little. He's certainly not facist... not even a little. He's a fast talking and quite dorky Reagan-revering conservative. I've listened to his radio show a few times, not really because I like him, but simply because it comes on for about an hour between two other shows I sometimes listen to. So I say none of this as a "fan" of his at all. I'm as neutral and unbiased towards him personally as one can be. I don't necessarily agree with "Republican" politics in general, but Ben Shapiro as a person is NINE THOUSAND TIMES more intelligent and articulate than any 100 of these dumbass kids put together.

to find who rules over you,are the ones you're not allowed to criticize.

The jews? Wait... I thought I was the racist piece of shit around here.

And while I'm half-joking... it wouldn't surprise me if you really did mean the jews. You seem to be the infowars type.

All they gotta do is this:

Have a position on things. State that position in clear language. Then when you get elected, actually DO those things.

How fucking hard does it have to be? No, instead, they flip flop, take contributions from corporations who tell them which way to vote... fuck that shit. We didn't elect your DONORS, we elected YOU.

Ever since they reformed campaign finance, it's been the single biggest thing to fuck up politics since... EVER.

It's nuts how close it was.

Speaking of nuts, how crazy is it that in many aspects the republican party is the MORE reasonable party these days? Keep in mind that's relative, I'm not saying they're reasonable.

When the tea party highjacked the republican party most of them were straight up loony!! How could it get any worse!?

Democrats: "Hold my beer"

 :lolsign:

Very very true. Hadn't thought of it like that before, but... absolutely.

Wasn't she seen in a picture from her past burning the GA flag :?:

Probably. I think I heard something about how she was involved in a protest (around 1999 or 2000) on the state capital steps where they burned the State of Georgia flag because it had the confederate "X" battle flag on it. And... I'm not entirely opposed to someone getting upset about that one. The reason it found it's way onto the state flag is a pretty bad one. Several states did it in closed untalked-about sessions as basically a way to tell the federal government to go fuck itself when they attempted to enforce desegregation and any related policies. Many whites insisted "It's a part of our history!" but they weren't entirely aware of all the circumstances surrounding it's initial adoption as a part of the flag in the late 50's. So after much debate, the state finally officially discontinued that flag. And several years prior to that, many state and local offices refused to display the flag. So for a year, we kinda didn't have an official flag. We had a flag that depicted several different versions of our state flags throughout the states history, one of them being a small image of the previous confederate battle flag version from the 1950's to 1998-ish (can't remember the exact years). But then the state congress came to a compromise on a flag that removed the Confederate battle flag, but still displayed our historical heritage (aka Confederate heritage). The entire flag looks almost EXACTLY like the actual Confederate flag. NOT the battle flag of the Army of Tennessee and/or the Army of Northern Virginia, that's the blue X on a red background with 13 stars. I'll try to google up some pics here...

So this is the current State of Georgia flag:


And this is the last version of the national flag of the Confederate States of America. It's known as the "Stars and Bars" of the Confederacy.


And just for reference... This flag is often incorrectly called the "stars and bars"... it is NOT. It is the battle colors of the Army of Tennessee as well as the battle colors of the Army of North Virginia (Gen Lee's army).


See what I mean? What they changed it to now is almost WORSE if you're insisting on a state flag that doesn't depict or honor the Confederacy. But... people are ignorant enough about their history that they don't even realize what it is. Unfortunately, the god damned Ku Klux Klan adopted the battle flag, the flag that many southern sons died under fighting for their homeland and the dream of an independent south, and NOT for slavery. The vast majority of confederate soldiers did not own slaves and did not care to DIE simply so other people with more money than them could keep their damned slaves. Like in all modern wars, it was the policy of an out of touch government that pushed the agenda towards slavery. Without ranting too much, it just disappoints me that these assholes have taken a flag that so many men died for with mostly noble intentions and perverted it by turning it into a rallying symbol for some shit that dishonors and disservices the memory of those who carried it into numerous battles.

Anyway, where was I?

Yeah, pretty sure she burnt the flag. And I'm not one to really freak out about that kind of thing no matter what the flag is. It's just a cloth, it's not fucking holy. If it's a military regiments ACTUAL BATTLE COLORS, the flag they carry onto the battlefield and it belongs to the regiment, yeah, don't burn that shit, that's fuckin' rude as hell, and I'll slap the fuck outta you. But an American flag or a Confederate flag or whatever... pffft, who cares. Most of them are made in fucking China anyway. :D

Another thing she mentioned at some point was REMOVING the bas relief carving from Stone Mountain. HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLL naw. You pack your shit and move to the west coast where they appreciate that kind of shit, you ain't sitting in MY fucking Governors mansion, bitch. You can ride that blue wave right the fuck outta here.

So yeah, I voted for the pasty dorky pseudo-redneck who had a commercial of him sitting on the tailgate of a truck with a break barrel shotgun... because lordy lordy, us common Georgia peasants can often be found cleaning our shotguns on the tailgates of pickup trucks in front of the red and white barn, derp derp. And this is why I fucking hate politics. These ads are so fucking pandering and fake and insinuate that they think we're stupid enough to believe the shit they say in these 30 second bullshit fests... and sadly... too many fucking people ARE swayed by that garbage.

Meh. Fuck Brian Kemp. But holy jumping shit lizards, fuck the fucking fuckity fuck outta Stacey Abrams and get that fucking cunt the fuck outta here FOREVER AND EVER.

The other race I was worried shitless about what the GA dist. 6 race between Karen Handel and Lucy McBath. Of course those fucking retards in DeKalb county came out by the dumptruck load to give McBath a slim victory. There's like a 3000 vote margin though, so it might've been able to go to a runoff. But I think McBath scored bbbbbbbbbbbbbbarely over the 50% mark, so Handel has already conceded... GRACIOUSLY... UNLIKE THAT CUNT ABRAMS.

dm / Re: Abolish the bfg! and rid of the quad! ( DM )
« on: November 07, 2018, 06:50:13 PM »
There ARE a couple of things that piss me off. Someone obviously timing the quad and whoring it to death can get annoying. But not very annoying. If I notice someone else doing that, I'll make a point of hovering near it and trying to grab it up before they can, and THAT'S the most annoying part about it, the fact that I've been convinced to change my routine and focus on item control rather than carefree aggressive attacking like usual.

But more than anything else, I get annoyed by the little suck-ass players like "dirty cop" who are the literal classic definition of a camper. Even when it's only you and him alone, he'll crouch in a corner with a rocket launcher or railgun trained on a door or ladder and REFUSES to move about. It's not that he's successful at it, it's just that it's sooooo fucking lame and pointless. I don't see how anyone could entertain themselves doing that year after year like he does. It's like... Why the fuck do you even play!?! You are wasting space on the server. Go jerk off or do drugs or join a cult or some shit, the rest of us wanna actually PLAY this shit.

just expressing some hate for quad / bfg..

I get it. But... I don't get it. It's not that big of a deal. Everyone uses it. So can you. Like Obama taught us, "BE the dickhead you see in the world." Or Maybe that was "be the change you want to see in the world." But in that case, people aren't gonna STOP using the bfg just because you do. So... just use it more than they do.

what are you trying to tell me?

I dunno. I ramble sometimes. It's probably because I'm batshit crazy.

I think there is an option for you to change what your name displays as, but you will still have the same login name that you registered with. Unless you talk to Quadz and he changes it. Many many moons ago, I asked him to change my login name from [EoM]Focalor to just Focalor, which was probably a tedious and annoying process for him. And it was so long ago... things with the forum might've changed to where he doesn't have that ability anymore. Or... you also have an account under the name "Thief" which was last used in 2011. If you can remember the password or have access to the email acct associated with it still, you can just use that one.

Haven't always legitimately "not given a fuck" even when maybe I claimed to, but these days, oh no, I really and sincerely DO NOT give a fuck anymore. And it's quite liberating... like... a douche commercial from the early 90's.

<span data-s9e-mediaembed="youtube" style="display:inline-block;width:100%;max-width:640px"><span style="display:block;overflow:hidden;position:relative;padding-bottom:56.25%"><iframe allowfullscreen="" scrolling="no" style="background:url(https://i.ytimg.com/vi/8yjGPgs0_S0/hqdefault.jpg) 50% 50% / cover;border:0;height:100%;left:0;position:absolute;width:100%" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/8yjGPgs0_S0"></iframe></span></span><br /><a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/8yjGPgs0_S0" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/8yjGPgs0_S0</a>

And I started to go on a rant about the type of person who DOES give a fuck... a "care hard", I think is the common term around here for such folk. But... fuck it. I'd be caring too much if I did that, and then I'd be a hypocrite probably.

Anyway, the main piece of advice I'd give: If you can't take the crabs, go to a different whore house.

120
First of all, who are you really? Because "bzzzt" ain't a name I recognize which you've used around here for a long enough time to know that clan iR used to have iR500 events, which hasn't happened in at least 4 or 5 years. When someone shows up with a new name but old stories... I get suspicious.
