A thought: In the 90's, we used to make fun of the political correctness dorks by saying that they'd end a prayer with "Amen... and awomen." Now... they ACTUALLY DO THAT.

If prayers were actually sexist in some way, or that word were somehow indicative of gender, perhaps it wouldn't be so fucking silly. Because what you're really accomplishing by saying "Amen... and awomen." is akin to having a Price Is Right model come out and show off your shiny golden goodguy badge to everyone.

The argument could be made, "Well if some people assign gender to it because it says 'A men' and that offends them, then what's the harm in being more inclusive and making them feel better?" Well, I'll tell you. Perhaps ignorance and stupidity offends ME. And who died and made you King to determine which one of us it is more preferable to offend?

ThEY CAN KIsS My FaT VagInA!

Perhaps the better argument is... why the fuck are they recognizing religion at all? You wanna pray, go to church. This is entirely why I oppose people like Reverend Raphael Warnock becoming senators. He has no experience in politics, he has no education in law... and yet we're gonna trust someone who believes in invisible friends in the sky... to run the fucking country competently? Or is it more likely that he doesn't REALLY believe any of that bullshit, and he just used his church as a way to accumulate wealth and evade taxes, and that's what he will continue doing as a senator?

Anyone notice that Pelosi said she was a mother and a wife in her trump impeachment speech instead of parent and spouse? She's the one who fought for legislation against gendered language  :busted:

The rules don't apply to the left. It's only when the Republicans say it that it has deep seeded sexism and misogyny.

AOC recounts her near death experience(click thread to see the rest of the videos):

"Plenty of heroism from the brown and black officers fighting white supremacists, but there was also betrayal by other officers"

Yeah. The white officers were trying to get congress assassinated.   :dohdohdoh:

That's what people believe. That a very, very small portion of reactionary folks that vote against the left and therefore with Republicans represent the entire republican party. Yet at the same time certain left leaders choose not to own mainstream left ideas(NOT some small group) like CRT, and flip flop to endorsing these ideas depending on the audience. Funny how that works.

Now THIS is news:

https://www.cosmopolitan.com/politics/a34345014/i-lost-best-friend-qanon/

But in all seriousness, this does show a contrast between left vs right. It is mainstream for people on the left to sever ties with people that have hardcore right views. It is not mainstream for people on the right to sever ties with people that have hardcore left views. This behavior is encouraged by mainstream left media and it is not encouraged by mainstream right media. Say what you will about fox but they don't do that crap.

I haven't really researched this much, but all of this is new to me:

https://www.wmur.com/article/what-we-know-about-the-4-deaths-in-the-mob-that-stormed-the-capitol/35151684

"Two people who saw the shooting, left-wing activist John Sullivan and documentary filmmaker Jade Sacker, provided CNN with video of the incident and described the moments beforehand"

The only two people that saw the shooting of those inside the capitol building were both left-wing activists/film makers?

 :exqueezeme:



Only or not it's just crazy that everyone is considering the thought that lefties were present to make the crowd look more negatively as a flat earth conspiracy. Why is there zero investigative journalism into this? It's just FACT CHECK: VIKING HAT GUY IS MAD THAT YOU'RE CALLING HIM ANTIFA HE SAYS MAGA FOR LIFE!!!

 :raincloud:

Update on this, Sullivan charged:

https://mobile.twitter.com/ChuckRossDC/status/1349836857748680704

Quote
After the crowd broke through the last barricade, and as SULLIVAN and the others approach the Capitol Building, SULLIVAN can be heard in the video saying at various points: ‘There are so many people. Let’s go. This s— is ours! F— yeah,’ ‘We accomplished this s—. We did this together. F— yeah! We are all a part of this history,’ and ‘Let’s burn this s— down.'”

Anderson Cooper actually had him on his show to demonize the evil trump supporters who attacked democracy.

Too true.

I apologize for my lack of involvement lately. New job, was informed of 100% no cell phone policy first day on the job when i decided to check TS and got caught (only 2 minute break i took all day - site manager must have binoculars). And I'm beat as a drum after 12 hours.

This is old but they're finally getting charged I just read. And solely due to James O'Keefe uncovering it. Common theme with my string of posts here, but this is yet another practice exhibited by the left but not on the right.

The Klan sides with Trump, if you voted for Trump, you side with the Klan.

Really? Is that all the logic it requires to formulate a thought? Okay, here's one...

Nazi's breathed oxygen and walked upright. Fish breathe water and swim. If you don't breathe in water and swim, you side with the Nazi's.

Where's my fucking CNN show?

P.S. and before players like Beatdown get confused: 'handicap' is 100% a server-side feature. (Q2 servers never ask clients opinion on damage calculations.)
 

Admin

January 17, 2021, 03:22:04 PM
It's a customization on our FFA servers allowing you to increase difficulty by reducing the damage you deal to opponents. Setting handicap 50 means your shots do half damage.

What's handicap? I just saw a player (ateateate) change handicap from 100 to 69? I've never heard of that setting before.
