the end of an era...kinda YOU ARE NOW AWARE that: >people who were born in the year 2000, as in people who were literally either in their mother's womb or not alive at all in the 90s, are going to legally become adults this year in 2018 >they will be able to vote, join the military, smoke (in some states at least), have sex with anyone older than them, go to college, drive, etc.
How does this make you feel? The way I see it this is kind of like the very early turning point for the transition from millenials to a new generation. A generation that doesn't know what it's like growing up without internet, or smartphones, and a lot of other stuff that has radically changed the way communicating and socializing works in the current age.
I'm kind of wondering if some of the millenial hate that's so prevalent now will ease up a bit, because millenials are gonna be old news soon enough.

/Spacetime/ Time; #48 (There's really been a lot of these, right?)
The stormy season of April had passed by during the night, and with the rising sun, the day is giving way to the fragrant bloom of May blossoms. Clouds part way for the bright sun to illuminate the paintbrush hues of the landscape, and the warm late-season breeze carries with it all varieties of birdsong, filling the air with the color and chorus of life.
Which is why this was the perfect day to stay indoors to do some inner research. For once, it was better to disregard these byproducts for today, the piercing bore of human progress has finally cracked open the foundations of reality; you had just discovered a time machine.
Well, what else could it be? It even looked like someone had done a spectacularly terrible job of trying to disguise the fact that it could pretty much only be a time machine. It was, in fact the most stereotypically time machine-like time machine anyone could imagine, yet it looks as if someone had sloppily taped cardboard around it in an attempt to make it look like a refrigerator. It was such shoddy work, and you wondered why anyone had even bothered. MOD EDIT:Original text moved to hide tag
The thing that was definitely a time machine loomed like a statue in the center of the room, wafting out a faint scent of ozone and copper. It must have displaced the matter around it as it arrived, since one of its edges was occupying the space where half of your chair should have been. As you shove the chair aside, it toppled over on its two remaining legs, thumping down on the dusty floor. Looking around, you started reaching for the entrance handle, but thought better of it. Instead, you move over to the small mailbox-shaped bin attached to the side of the machine. There was nothing inside except for a newspaper clipping and an envelope. You take a look at the newspaper, a cutout of the week’s weather, dated three years into the future. It was otherwise unremarkable, so you open up the envelope.
Wow, why would you write something like that? It was disorienting, seeing your own handwriting attached to a message you clearly have never written, and definitely, resolutely, never will. But now, you know you will. The presence of the note, along with the time machine, is undeniable. With the staggering weight of this realization, you reached for a chair, but found only half of one. You plop down on the half-cushion anyway. It’s better than sitting on the floor.
A perfect day, a poorly-disguised time machine, a message from your future self, and half of a chair. These were the facts you were given. What could be made out of them? How do these pieces fall together? You knew that the easiest way to find out lied only beyond the set of golden handles, yet enough experience with science fiction told you that time travel is serious business. Even to the expert authors of those grandiose fables, it’s still a complete mystery. No one knows how to operate a time machine. What if you were sent to a time when earth could no longer support life? What would you do, lost to the depths of spacetime, consigned to a fate worse than death?
But you know that those would not happen. How could you have sent the message to yourself otherwise? You are, for all you know, safe in the gentle and logical flow of the river of causality. There is nothing stopping you from being as reckless as you want. You will never have to bring yourself to write that message, because as long as you don’t, there is nothing that can kill you. There is nothing in the universe that can break the chain of necessity that grant you immortality. After all, the greatest gift is one that you give to yourself.
With your newfound confidence, you climb into the dimly-lit cabin of the time machine. Giving hardly a glance at the deep red sunset over the world outside, you close the door once again. But as the machine began to hum and shake, you suddenly felt just one last figment of doubt. Heedless, it nonetheless vanished with a sudden whisper, leaving behind nothing but a rectangular outline of dust and a lingering smell of ozone and copper.
You had almost realized it just then. You made the mistake of assuming that you knew more about yourself than about time travel.

Ask me anything about my great country.
Paganism? So, /chat/, I have been contemplating about my religious views lately, and I wanted to get a discussion flowing about a religion I might partake in: paganism.
Now, the main reason I am even interested in religion is because I feel as thought there may or may not be spirits out there, and sometimes in this world, not everything can be explained through science. However, I'm not going to say that religion is the answer to everything either; but, if I'm going to join a religion, I want to join one where I don't have to worry about my deity(ies) sending me into the inferno for not doing ALL that they say. But, I may not be the most educated on this matter, which is why I'm here.
I actually did do a bit of research, and it's surprising that may mainstream holidays that we just celebrated have pagan origins, which is reassuring. What are your views on this subject? Is joining this kind of religion a good idea?

Greek Anarchists Say They're Injecting Groceries with Toxic AcidStory >If you come to Greece during Christmas, you’ll find piles of walnut-crusted melomakarona cookies; buttery, snow-white kourambiethes; caramelized pork; and a yeasted bread called christopsomo. It’s all delicious, but be careful what you pick off the supermarket shelves during your holiday shopping—some products may have been poisoned by anarchists. >On December 19, the Greek self-styled anarchist group Black and Greek Arsonists posted a statement on the anarchist-run blog Indymedia entitled “Green Nemesis Act 3.” The group claims they took some beloved food products off the shelves of supermarkets in the country’s capital, Athens, and its second largest city, Thessaloniki, and injected the products with hydrochloric acid. The group plans to surreptitiously return the products to supermarket shelves from December 20 to 24—just in time for Christmas in this deeply religious, Orthodox Christian country. >Citing “practical reasons,” the group helpfully detailed which items are to be contaminated: 1.5-liter bottles of Coca-Cola and Coca-Cola Light; a popular tube-shaped luncheon meat called Yfantis (350- and 500-gram packages); and Delta whole milk. In the photos accompanying the post, a heavily gloved hand is seen poking a syringe into the various food products.

America’s flat-Earth movement appears to be growingStory >IT IS a stunt worthy of Evel Knievel. This week, if all goes to plan, “Mad” Mike Hughes, a Californian, will launch himself 1,800 feet (550 metres) into the sky in a homemade steam-powered rocket made of scrap metal. As well as providing entertainment, Mr Hughes wants to prove a point. On his trip over the Mojave Desert, which could propel him at speeds of up to 500 miles (800km) per hour, the 61-year-old limousine-driver-turned-daredevil hopes to prove that the Earth is flat. >Some may be surprised to learn that people still hold such views. After all, the Earth has been photographed from space. But such photos could have been faked by the evil forces who secretly control the world, right? And all those centuries of scientific evidence suggesting that the Earth is spherical could be wrong, right? In America interest in the flat-Earth movement appears to be growing. In September Bobby Ray Simmons Jr., a rapper also known as B.o.B, launched a crowd-funding campaign to send satellites into orbit to determine the Earth’s shape. On November 9th, 500 “flat-Earthers” assembled in North Carolina for the first annual Flat Earth International Conference. Data from Google Trends show that in the past two years, searches for “flat earth” have more than tripled (see chart).

Appeals court rules against Trump travel ban 3.0Story >A federal appeals court ruled that the latest version of President Donald Trump's controversial travel ban policy should be partially blocked because the president appears to have exceeded his authority in issuing the directive. >However, the unanimous decision issued Friday by a three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals will have no immediate effect because of a temporary ruling the Supreme Court issued earlier this month allowing the administration to fully implement the ban as it appealed a pair of injunctions issued against the policy. >The policy Trump issued in September limits issuance of visas to citizens of six majority-Muslim countries. >9th Circuit Judges Michael Daly Hawkins, Ronald Gould and Richard Paez issued a 71-page joint opinion saying the president's order arrogates power that Congress reserved through legislation it passed. >...Technically, the 9th Circuit ruling Friday was not a final decision from the appeals court panel but a ruling that the preliminary injunction issued by the Hawaii judge should remain in place, at least in part, while the case is litigated further. The suit was brought by the State of Hawaii, the imam who heads a Muslim group in that state, and others. >Trump's latest order also affects some would-be travelers from two nations with governments sharply at odds with the U.S. North Korea and Venezuela, although those restrictions were not challenged in the suit ruled on Friday.
https://www.rt.com/op-edge/413989-israel-jerusalem-un-trump/ >There was a time perhaps when the US could command global leadership.

So now i wonder: what's the coverage on that UN vote like where you are? This linked thingy being RT and all. Personally i'm kinda mixed on the issue: i don't care about Palestine, but i also don't care about Jerusalem being in anyone's hands. And in regards to the vote: had i had a say in it i'd have voted along with the majority, not out of any conviction but rather just in mocking response to the delusional threats uttered by the US beforehand.

Auckland mumps outbreak now an epidemic, prompts call for vaccination campaignStory >Auckland's mumps outbreak has become an epidemic and a vaccination campaign is needed to stop it spreading across New Zealand, health experts say. >More than 1000 people have caught mumps in Auckland this year, with the number of cases almost doubling since the start of October. >...The outbreak was now an epidemic because it could not be contained, the public health officials say in a joint letter to the Ministry of Health. >...With current measures to contain the disease having little impact, a more high profile vaccination campaign was needed, the officials said. >...About 80 per cent of current cases were in people not immunised, including among a so called "lost generation" of 10-29-year-olds with particularly low rates of the measles, mumps and rubella vaccination. The ministry is expected to reply to the DHBs shortly. <pic unrelated
This caught my attention, it seems like an interesting development on the long-running war regarding copyright law with social media.
From what I understand, this deal is essentially Universal Music giving the go-ahead for the average user to freely use their music in their own personal videos without having to circumvent any kind of copyright infringement issues that, usually, would lead to it getting taken down.
It will be interesting to see if something like this happens with youtube as well, because that would really shake up how that platform works in general. As someone who used to make a lot of YTPs, avoiding copyright claims was always a pain in the ass.
This could potentially be positive for the future.
Glowing Auras and ‘Black Money’: The Pentagon’s Mysterious U.F.O. ProgramNew York Times' Story >In the $600 billion annual Defense Department budgets, the $22 million spent on the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program was almost impossible to find. >Which was how the Pentagon wanted it. >For years, the program investigated reports of unidentified flying objects, according to Defense Department officials, interviews with program participants and records obtained by The New York Times. It was run by a military intelligence official, Luis Elizondo, on the fifth floor of the Pentagon’s C Ring, deep within the building’s maze. >The Defense Department has never before acknowledged the existence of the program, which it says it shut down in 2012. But its backers say that, while the Pentagon ended funding for the effort at that time, the program remains in existence. For the past five years, they say, officials with the program have continued to investigate episodes brought to them by service members, while also carrying out their other Defense Department duties. >The shadowy program — parts of it remain classified — began in 2007, and initially it was largely funded at the request of Harry Reid, the Nevada Democrat who was the Senate majority leader at the time and who has long had an interest in space phenomena. Most of the money went to an aerospace research company run by a billionaire entrepreneur and longtime friend of Mr. Reid’s, Robert Bigelow, who is currently working with NASA to produce expandable craft for humans to use in space. >On CBS’s “60 Minutes” in May, Mr. Bigelow said he was “absolutely convinced” that aliens exist and that U.F.O.s have visited Earth.

serious topic, no bait would the world be different if Eminem had died after releasing his third album?
not him too...https://pitchfork.com/news/louis-ck-accused-of-sexual-misconduct-by-multiple-women/ >Louis C.K. has been accused of sexual misconduct by five women, The New York Times reports. In a new exposé, an anonymous woman, as well as comedians Dana Min Goodman, Julia Wolov, Abby Schachner, and Rebecca Corry have detailed disturbing incidents where C.K. masturbated in their presence, while on the telephone with them, or asked to masturbate in front of them. The incidents reportedly occurred in 2002, 2003, and 2005. In addition to C.K.’s alleged behavior, Wolov and Goodman said that Dave Becky, C.K.’s manager, asked them to stop telling people about the incident; Becky denies threatening them.
tl;dr: Louis CK has been accused by five different women of either masturbating in their presence or asking if he can masturbate in their presence.

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Congress approved legislation representing the first comprehensive tax reform in a generation. The President is expected to sign the bill in the coming days.
“This tax reform will drive economic growth and create good-paying jobs. In fact, we will increase our U.S. investment and pay a special bonus to our U.S. employees.” Tweet this
Once tax reform is signed into law, AT&T* plans to invest an additional $1 billion in the United States in 2018 and pay a special $1,000 bonus to more than 200,000 AT&T U.S. employees — all union-represented, non-management and front-line managers. If the President signs the bill before Christmas, employees will receive the bonus over the holidays
Are you now or have ever been associated with the wrong people? Twitter will remove your account from their service beginning today under their new militarized safe space policy.
Look at these excerpts from the policy change list page. >Accounts that affiliate with organizations that use or promote violence against civilians to further their causes. Groups included in this policy will be those that identify as such or engage in activity — both on and off the platform — that promotes violence. This policy does not apply to military or government entities and we will consider exceptions for groups that are currently engaging in (or have engaged in) peaceful resolution. >Content that glorifies violence or the perpetrators of a violent act. This includes celebrating any violent act in a manner that may inspire others to replicate it or any violence where people were targeted because of their membership in a protected group. We will require offending Tweets to be removed and repeated violations will result in permanent suspension. >Any account that abuses or threatens others through their profile information, including their username, display name, or profile bio. If an account’s profile information includes a violent threat or multiple slurs, epithets, racist or sexist tropes, incites fear, or reduces someone to less than human, it will be permanently suspended. We plan to develop internal tools to help us identify violating accounts to supplement user reports.
Granted some of these new rules are perfectly sound. Right up to the point of denying expression of things they are unwilling to associate with.
Most people I ask about Twitter have dropped it years ago claiming it was worthless to them. I'm going to guess that this new effort on their part to clean house will only lead to their demise as a social gathering place.

The ‘Alt-Right’ Created a Parallel Internet. It’s an Unholy Mess.Story >If you’ve lost sleep worrying about the growing power of the alt-right — that shadowy coalition that includes white nationalists, anti-feminists, far-right reactionaries and meme-sharing trolls — I may have found a cure for your anxiety. >Just try using its websites. >In recent months, as sites like YouTube, Twitter and Facebook have cracked down on hate speech and barred several high-profile conservative users, the alt-right made a declaration of technological independence from Silicon Valley. Hard-right activists vowed to create their own versions of these digital services, on which all views would be welcome, no matter how crude or incendiary. >More than a dozen “alt-tech” companies have now emerged, each promising a refuge from political correctness and censorship. There is Gab, a kind of alt-Twitter social network that began last year, whose early adopters included prominent figures like Milo Yiannopoulos and Andrew Anglin, the founder of the neo-Nazi Daily Stormer website. There is WrongThink (alt-Facebook), PewTube (alt-YouTube), Voat (alt-Reddit), Infogalactic (alt-Wikipedia) and GoyFundMe (alt-Kickstarter). There is even WASP.love, a dating site for white nationalists and others “wishing to preserve their heritage.” >Recently, I spent several days testing a number of these alt-tech services. I created accounts, explored their features and interfaces, and interviewed users of each site about their experiences. (With my wife’s permission, I even created a WASP.love profile and advertised myself as a New York journalist looking to interview lovelorn white supremacists. Oddly, I got no takers.) >What I found on these sites was more pitiful than fear-inspiring. Sure, some alt-tech platforms were filled with upsetting examples of Nazi imagery and bigoted garbage. But most were ghost towns, with few active users and no obvious supervision. As technology products, many are second- or third-rate, with long load times, broken links and frequent error messages. A few had been taken offline altogether. <pic unrelated
CDC gets list of forbidden words: Fetus, transgender, diversityStory >The Trump administration is prohibiting officials at the nation’s top public health agency from using a list of seven words or phrases — including “fetus” and “transgender” — in official documents being prepared for next year’s budget. >Policy analysts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta were told of the list of forbidden words at a meeting Thursday with senior CDC officials who oversee the budget, according to an analyst who took part in the 90-minute briefing. The forbidden words are “vulnerable,” “entitlement,” “diversity,” “transgender,” “fetus,” “evidence-based” and “science-based.” >In some instances, the analysts were given alternative phrases. Instead of “science-based” or “evidence-based,” the suggested phrase is “CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes,” the person said. In other cases, no replacement words were immediately offered. >The Department of Health and Human Services, which oversees the CDC, “will continue to use the best scientific evidence available to improve the health of all Americans,” HHS spokesman Matt Lloyd told The Washington Post. “HHS also strongly encourages the use of outcome and evidence data in program evaluations and budget decisions.” >The question of how to address such issues as sexual orientation, gender identity and abortion rights — all of which received significant visibility under the Obama administration — has surfaced repeatedly in federal agencies since President Trump took office. Several key departments — including HHS, as well as Justice, Education, and Housing and Urban Development — have changed some federal policies and how they collect government information about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans.

Doug Jones Is Just A Normal Polling Error Away From A Win In AlabamaStory >Things seem to be going Roy Moore’s way. President Trump endorsed him. The Republican National Committee is back to supporting him. And Moore, who has been accused of sexual contact with women when they were underaged, has led by an average of 3 percentage points in polls taken within 21 days of the Dec. 12 special Senate election in Alabama. The betting markets give Moore about an 80 percent chance of victory — roughly the same chance they gave Hillary Clinton just before the 2016 presidential election. >Before Election Day last year, we advised caution, however — polls aren’t perfect at even the best of times, Trump had an advantage in the Electoral College, and there were a lot of undecided voters. So what’s our advice heading into the Alabama election? Well, it’s the same — be cautious — but for slightly different reasons. >A look at all U.S. Senate election polls since 1982 shows that their average error — how far off the polls were from the actual election result — is more than a percentage point higher than the average error in presidential polling. Also, Alabama polls have been volatile, this is an off-cycle special election with difficult-to-predict turnout, and there haven’t been many top-quality pollsters surveying the Alabama race. So even though Moore is a favorite, Democrat Doug Jones is just a normal polling error away from winning. (Or, by the same token, Moore could win comfortably.)

Irregular object arrives from interstellar spacehttp://www.eso.org/public/news/eso1737/ >On 19 October 2017, the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope in Hawai`i picked up a faint point of light moving across the sky. It initially looked like a typical fast-moving small asteroid, but additional observations over the next couple of days allowed its orbit to be computed fairly accurately. The orbit calculations revealed beyond any doubt that this body did not originate from inside the Solar System, like all other asteroids or comets ever observed, but instead had come from interstellar space. Although originally classified as a comet, observations from ESO and elsewhere revealed no signs of cometary activity after it passed closest to the Sun in September 2017. The object was reclassified as an interstellar asteroid and named 1I/2017 U1 (`Oumuamua) . >Karen Meech explains the significance: “This unusually large variation in brightness means that the object is highly elongated: about ten times as long as it is wide, with a complex, convoluted shape. We also found that it has a dark red colour, similar to objects in the outer Solar System, and confirmed that it is completely inert, without the faintest hint of dust around it.” >These properties suggest that `Oumuamua is dense, possibly rocky or with high metal content, lacks significant amounts of water or ice, and that its surface is now dark and reddened due to the effects of irradiation from cosmic rays over millions of years. It is estimated to be at least 400 metres long. >Preliminary orbital calculations suggested that the object had come from the approximate direction of the bright star Vega, in the northern constellation of Lyra. However, even travelling at a breakneck speed of about 95 000 kilometres/hour, it took so long for the interstellar object to make the journey to our Solar System that Vega was not near that position when the asteroid was there about 300 000 years ago. `Oumuamua may well have been wandering through the Milky Way, unattached to any star system, for hundreds of millions of years before its chance encounter with the Solar System.

Iraqi commander says his country's war against Islamic State has endedStory >BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraq said Saturday that its war on the Islamic State is over after more than three years of combat operations drove the extremists from all of the territory they once held. >Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced Iraqi forces were in full control of the country's border with Syria during remarks at a conference in Baghdad, and his spokesman said the development marked the end of the military fight against IS. >..."All Iraqi lands are liberated from terrorist Daesh gangs and our forces completely control the international Iraqi-Syrian border," Lt. Gen. Abdul-Amir Rasheed Yar Allah said in a statement released shortly after al-Abadi's remarks. Daesh is an Arabic acronym for IS. >...Iraq now faces the daunting challenge of reconstruction.

Australian Parliament approves same-sex marriage after long national debateStory >Marriage equality is now a reality in Australia. Its Parliament voted on Thursday to allow same-sex marriage in the Commonwealth country. >The House of Representatives passed a bill to change the definition of marriage from solely between a man and a woman to "a union of two people." >"The House of Representatives has passed the Marriage Amendment (Definition and Religious Freedoms) Bill 2017," tweeted the Australian House of Representatives. "The bill now goes to the Governor-General for Royal Assent." >...The House was widely expected to approve the historic bill after the Senate approved the same legislation last week, 43 votes to 12. >A majority of Australian voters endorsed marriage equality in a postal ballot last month asking, "Should the law be changed to allow same-sex couples to marry?" Of those who responded, 62 percent said "yes," and 38 percent said "no."

SJWs and the LGBT Community I'm not a fan of SJW's, let's just get that out of the way. I find many of their ideas misguided and/or toxic, but there's one thing that frustrates me the most about them: their claims to the LGBT community.
As I imagine many of us have seen, many SJWs make hug claims like "76 genders" or "non-binary trans person" and the like. Now, I personally couldn't care less about what you call yourself, but I have an issue when you go out on the web and start acting like you speak on the behalf of an entire community. And, while I'm not necessarily trying to devalue a person based on what they call themselves, it is in fact harmful when someone (let's say Milo Stewart or Riley Dennis) or the like go on the internet and try to paint the LGBT community in the ways they claim to be factual, it is a complete disgrace and can harm the image of the LGBT community.
This is anecdotal, but I consider myself bi-curious, and while I have told some of my family about my feelings, I know that until I am 100% sure that I am bi, I ought to keep it to myself and really evaluate if this is truly a part of who I am. I cannot speak for everybody, but I'm just guessing that this is a similar process others have gone through as well in relation to being bi or gay. Some just know they are, others are experimenting and trying to figure out who they are as people, and that's where I land.
Now, take being trans. Being trans is something I could argue had an even larger impact on your life than being gay or bi, because at least you can keep being gay or bi hidden, where as being trans is basically transforming your entire body via hormone therapy and surgery, which of screwed with the wrong way, can have cancerous results. In other words, saying and feeling that you are truly trans is very serious business, because a gender transition can have the largest impact on your physical well being and health, and is a long and lengthy process that can be an emotional roller coaster. I don't know what it's like to be trans, but I'm only guessing based on observing friends of mine who are trans. I even had a best friend a couple years ago who was trans, and his process seemed very emotionally rough and lengthy.
With this in mind, having seen my best and beloved friend go through this, it thus pisses me off when I see SJWs falander the labels "non-binary" or "trans" like it's the new trend. It not only demeans the seriousness that being transgender has, but also makes legitimate trans people look like a joke, and as someone who does care about the LGBT community being respected just like anyone else, it angers me to my core that the SJWs are ruining the image of trans people who may be suffering from dysphoria and are trying to fix themselves.
I apologize for this text wall, but I was thinking about this earlier and needed to get this off my chest. Feel free to tell me what you think.
American dream/self-made millionair/start your own business! meme So I'm gonna try and talk about this without going into personal detail because I don't want to try and sound like this is about me or my family, BUT this is something I've talked with people about and seen a lot of people talk about.
Basically it's just how the older generation(s) (boomers and what not) still cling to this belief that literally anyone can just pick themselves up by their bootstraps and work themselves out of any shitty financial situation, like all it takes is just some real hard work, but the REALITY is that many people in America are working to their maximum capacity, like 2-3 jobs, 6-7 days a week, and this is also often in addition to raising one or more children, and even all of that is barely enough to have an average lower-middle-class home and lifestyle.
Not to mention the people who have trouble finding any job in the first place, let alone a dream job that could actually lead to a grand lifestyle. And that's of course where the boomers will say "well go to college then!" but like, I don't think people just GO to college, there's a huge financial aspect to that that ends up putting tons of people in debt way over their heads, sometimes for degrees that don't even guarantee them that great of a job. Like, I want to go to college, but I'm gonna make absolutely sure I do it in the right way for me.
This whole idea of "anyone can make it, grab life by the balls, etc." is such a fantasy and the idea that most people aren't wildly successful "is because they're just lazy" is downright insulting.
AND all of this doesn't even take into account the issues people with physical and/or mental illness have with working or finding work or the amount they can handle working etc. (which is often less than regular people).
I don't know much about economics but based on my experience in life, it seems to me like the middle class is practically melting into what used to be considered "poor". I know for fact that the cost of living where I live has skyrocketed over the course of the last 20 or so years. But the amount that the jobs people work pay to said people has barely changed if at all.
And boomers will always point to these cherrypicked examples of exceptional situations of shit like some amputee becoming an award-winning millionaire but like, that is by far the exception to the rule, that's not something that anyone can just do, you know? Or they bring up famous politicians and celebrities but ignore the fact that they were born into money *cough*Trump*cough*
Oh and one more thing, the whole "DUDE JUST START YOUR OWN BUSINESS LMAO" thing is absurd because for one, starting a business requires a lot of money and likely employees as well and the average middle-class citizen can't just pull that shit out of thin air. Not to mention that the business market is already dominated by multi-million/billion-dollar corporations who wouldn't hesitate to crush a smaller business owner trying to start out. We're not in the 1800s or something anymore, the big players are mostly already established.
What do you guys think of all this, or have to add? Am I wrong about this stuff? Curious to hear people's thoughts.
Side note: I don't understand why huge corporations have so many staunch defenders when those defenders are the same people that the corporations they're defending are buttfucking them regularly. Like I see people say stuff like "why do you whine about BIG BUSINESS so much, give them a break" but like, they don't need average citizens to defend them from other average citizens, that's completely asinine, I'm sick of seeing apologists for the atrocious shit that oil companies and the like do.

Al Franken Issues Apology After Accusation of Forcible Kissing and GropingStory >A growing national outcry over sexual harassment reached the Senate on Thursday, when a radio newscaster accused Al Franken, Democrat of Minnesota, of kissing and groping her without consent during a 2006 U.S.O. tour of the Middle East before he took public office. >Mr. Franken, who has been mentioned as a possible presidential candidate, almost immediately released an apology to the newscaster, Leeann Tweeden, who said that Mr. Franken forcibly kissed her during a rehearsal and groped her for a photo as she slept. After initially apologizing without fully acknowledging all of her accusations, he then released another lengthier, more contrite statement that contested nothing. >“The first thing I want to do is apologize: to Leeann, to everyone else who was part of that tour, to everyone who has worked for me, to everyone I represent, and to everyone who counts on me to be an ally and supporter and champion of women,” Mr. Franken wrote. >“I respect women. I don’t respect men who don’t,” he continued. “And the fact that my own actions have given people a good reason to doubt that makes me feel ashamed.” >The storm that enveloped Mr. Franken in a matter of hours marked a merger of sorts between the harassment scandals darkening the political world and the grave misconduct marring the entertainment industry. Republicans are still struggling to resolve their quandary with Roy S. Moore, the Alabama Senate candidate accused of sexually assaulting teenage girls.
Britain First supporter drove van at curry house owner, court hearsStory >A Britain First supporter gave a Nazi salute and shouted “white power” before driving at a curry house owner during a drunken rampage, a court has heard. >Marek Zakrocki, 48, vented his anti-Muslim rage before the attack outside the Spicy Night restaurant in Alexandra Parade in Harrow, north-west London, on the anniversary of the Brexit vote on 23 June. >He was heard to say: “I’m going to kill a Muslim. I’m doing it for Britain. This is how I’m going to help the country. You people cannot do anything.” >The Old Bailey heard that the Polish-born window fitter then used his white van as a weapon against Kamal Ahmed and mounted the pavement twice. He was driving at 5mph and was in effect trying to pin Ahmed against the front of the restaurant window, which smashed. >Following his arrest by armed officers, police found a Nazi coin in Zakrocki’s pocket and a number of Britain First flyers and newspapers at his home in Harrow. >At the Old Bailey on Monday, Zakrocki pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and beating his wife. Further charges of attempting to cause grievous bodily harm and having a knife in Northolt Road, Harrow, were ordered to lie on file.

Difference between dark and edgy I've seen everywhere that whenever someone says something off-putting or "disturbing" so to speak they usually get called out on being edgy. Sometimes I agree on the assessment, and sometimes it feels like people call things that actually disturb or make them uncomfortable edgy instead of offering a counter-argument or simply not commenting anything at all, I am guilty of that too.
Now, usually to me edgy means "dark" concepts that are presented/executed poorly. So for example you could make a joke about 9/11, or the holocaust or whatever and make it work if it's clever enough, or if the intention is to be offensive and get a response out of people, and it would be dark even if people call it edgy. And at the same time you could make an academic essay on how existence is shit or whatever and explain yourself so poorly that you just come off as pretentious.
The reason I ask this is that I want very badly to write "dark" stories, because I feel that stories that touch on heavy subjects and are more "realistic" or have realistic elements are much more interesting and fresh than the usual wish fulfillment stuff.
So how does one make good "dark" writing? I have experienced too little of life (and it's been a good and comfy life all in all), so I can't draw from personal experience, I don't offer any fresh or new ideas, I know too little about philosophy to actually say with 100% certainty that I'm this or that or to present good or at least interesting/compelling arguments. I firmly believe that there are no bad ideas and that execution is all.
Michael Flynn pleads guilty to lying to FBI as Trump-Russia inquiry takes critical stepStory >In a startling breakthrough for prosecutors investigating potential collusion between Russia and the Donald Trump presidential campaign, former national security adviser Michael Flynn announced on Friday that he was cooperating with prosecutors and ready to testify about Russian contacts. >After months of silence and invisibility, Flynn walked into a federal courthouse in Washington DC on Friday morning and pleaded guilty to one count of lying to the FBI. The plea was part of a larger deal with special counsel Robert Mueller’s team, and strikes at the heart of the Trump White House. >The US president was uncharacteristically mute as the spectacle played out. The White House canceled a planned photoshoot in the Oval Office with the prime minister of Libya. >Flynn admitted that he lied in interviews with FBI agents shortly after the inauguration about conversations he had held with then-Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak concerning US sanctions on Russia and other matters. >Flynn further described a chain of communication within Trump’s presidential transition team in which he received direction in December 2016 from a “very senior transition official” – unnamed in court documents – and consulted “senior members” of the team on what to say to Kislyak. >Because Trump was not in power at the time, that plotting could expose those involved to charges of working with foreign governments to undermine US policy. But the extent of Flynn’s potential testimony in the Russia matter was unknown and could carry other legal hazards for the White House.
Antivaxxers in The US Have Finally Stopped Gaining Ground, Study SuggestsStory >It hasn't been the best year for parents worrying about the spread of what should be preventable infectious diseases. >Minnesota's measles outbreak in April was the state's worst such epidemic in decades, so bad it led to more confirmed cases than the whole US saw in 2016. But a hopeful new study suggests that by one measure at least, the threat of the anti-vaccine movement may be fading. >According to an analysis of kindergarten vaccine exemption rates in the US between 2011 and 2016, the number of parents refusing to vaccinate their children on non-medical grounds peaked in 2013 and actually fell slightly thereafter – although the decrease is so marginal it's effectively a stabilisation. >The finding comes from a team of researchers at Emory University, who examined nation-wide data on parents who held off from vaccinating their children for religious and/or philosophical reasons.

Idea of new MLP stuff (and games) web storage Greetings, everypony. I haven't found any good site where all games and programs related to mlp are stored. So I've decided to make my own site, with a good search engine and easy tags to find the thing you might be looking for. I'm not going to make it a colorful popular web storage, just a simple html pages. I want to do that so that none of mlp stuff get lost forever. Unfortunately, this idea has visited my mind only a few days ago. If somebody decided to do it in, for example, 2011, then maybe not so many good games would be lost as they are now.

I will not get into those details. >...Our mission is to go to the EDGE of the Earth, where the common man has not even been allowed and for once, gather all the evidence, call it a exploration tour if you want, but for limited few as the resources we have are enough to get 15 people through, so a crew of highly qualified army intelligence scientists and me with 10 others will embark on this journey sometime between October – November 2017, hopefully with the Support of other Earth Truthers and put an end to this debate forever. >...Think of this as a back stage pass to the grand dance stage of creation itself.

Supreme Court on Friday. >The ruling declared two sections of the state's landmark domestic violence law that made gender references unconstitutional as applied. The "as applied," approach avoids a situation where the law itself would be unconstitutional, rendering it useless. >And the court agreed that there was "no reasonable basis ... to support a definition that results in disparate treatment of same-sex couples," thus extending protections to any unmarried couples, regardless of their sexual orientation. >The move was met with praise by all involved. >"I applaud the state Supreme Court’s ruling today," said S.C.

Cant imagine just how brave the guy is, nevermind how lucky he is to still be alive (and is safe, walking and talking in a South Korean hospital right now) after being shot multiple times at point blank range.
Wonder if that was down to the guns being old and faulty or the soilders not being well trained. Either way, must suck for that guy knowing that while he is now safe his family are either being tortured right now or dead and buried.
Wonder what will happen to the North Korean guard who accidently ran (and fired) into South Korean territory; As it happens he broke both an agreement and international law by doing so.
Then again, doubt North Korea will care about that too much. Still, it looks like he shit himself when he realized what he had done.
Guys in for a hard time thats for sure..
Bonus points for the South Korean guys who risked there own lives rescuing the defecter, if they left him any longer he probably would have bled out.

FCC Plans December Vote to Kill Net Neutrality RulesStory >The U.S. Federal Communications Commission next month is planning a vote to kill Obama-era rules demanding fair treatment of web traffic and may decide to vacate the regulations altogether, according to people familiar with the plans. >The move would reignite a years-long debate that has seen Republicans and broadband providers seeking to eliminate the rules, while Democrats and technology companies support them. The regulations passed in 2015 bar broadband providers such as AT&T Inc. and Comcast Corp. from interfering with web traffic sent by Google, Facebook Inc. and others. >FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, chosen by President Donald Trump, in April proposed gutting the rules and asked for public reaction. The agency has taken in more than 22 million comments on the matter. >Pai plans to seek a vote in December, said two people who asked not to be identified because the matter hasn’t been made public. As the head of a Republican majority, he is likely to win a vote on whatever he proposes. >One of the people said Pai may call for vacating the rules except for portions that mandate internet service providers inform customers about their practices -- one of the more severe options that would please broadband providers. They argue the FCC’s rules aren’t needed and discourage investment, in part because they subject companies to complex and unpredictable regulations. <pic unrelated
George Bush Snr accused of groping by eighth womanStory >An interpreter, whom the BBC has agreed not to name because of the sensitive nature of her job, claims Mr Bush touched her inappropriately in 2004. >The alleged incident took place at a meeting between the former president and the Spanish defence minister Jose Bono Martinez. >The interpreter has not previously spoken publicly about the incident. >"It was 2004," she told the BBC. "Spanish troops had been withdrawn suddenly from Iraq and I was working as an interpreter in Spain." >...It was at the photo call after the meeting had finished when the alleged incident occurred. >"When the time came to take the photos, Mr Bush insisted on me being in the photo," the interpreter said. >"I remember thinking this was odd. Usually we stay outside of the frame. >"He grabbed my bum. At first I thought it was an accident, but then he did it a second time." >Her story is similar to other allegations made against Mr Bush. Another woman, Roslyn Corrigan, told the publication Time that Mr Bush touched her inappropriately in 2003, when she was 16. On Thursday, CNN reported allegations from a 55-year-old woman who said Mr Bush touched her inappropriately in April 1992. >In October, a spokesman for Mr Bush, Jim McGrath, acknowledged that Mr Bush had "on occasion… patted women's rears in what he intended to be in a good-natured manner". >Mr McGrath partially blamed Mr Bush's use of a wheelchair. "His arms fall on the lower waist of people with whom he takes pictures," he said. >The interpreter told the BBC that Mr Bush was standing during the alleged incident. >Mr Bush did not start using a wheelchair until around 2012, roughly eight years after the interpreter says the incident took place.

A Bible museum mystery: Are its Dead Sea Scrolls fake?Story on CNN >Small scraps of parchment inscribed with tiny Hebrew letters. They look like countries cut out of a map, or lost pieces from a jigsaw puzzle nobody could solve. >Some scholars say they're fragments from the renowned Dead Sea Scrolls, Jewish texts that date to the days of Jesus. Others suspect they are expensive forgeries meant to dupe American evangelicals, including the family behind the splashy new Museum of the Bible in Washington, DC. >Last week, as the museum prepared for its grand opening on Friday, workers put finishing touches on its five floors of exhibits. They assembled the virtual reality ride through Washington, washed windows with clear views of the Capitol building, and wired the interactive displays that wind through the museum's 430,000 square feet. >...With a price tag of $500 million, the Bible museum represents a heavy investment by its evangelical founders, particularly the Green family. Depending on your zip code, you may know the Oklahoma billionaires best for their chain of Hobby Lobby craft stores, or for their religious freedom battle with the Obama administration. >...In 2002, dozens of previously known "Dead Sea Scroll" fragments began appearing with antiquity dealers. Universities, museums and private collectors acquired many of these "new" fragments. As scholars began to study them, some noted puzzling features and labeled them as forgeries. >MOTB (Museum of the Bible) published the initial research on its scroll fragments in 2016, but scholarly opinions of their authenticity remain divided. Scientific analysis of the ink and handwriting on these pieces continues. <pic unrelated

Who is hyped for the return of the Parr family next June?
Blog Post In the time that certain people have been arguing all day on the internet; I did some yoga, cleaned out my car, ate some nice curry, paid my bills, watched a couple cartoons, read Kropotkin while taking a comfy bath, and did some good work on editing for a project of mine.
Ever since I stopped spending all my free time on internet arguments, my days have become much more productive, enriching and rewarding.
It's kinda weird how this is legal.
How similar to Ancient Greece are we?

Roy moore What's Oat's thoughts on the situation as it goes down?
Weird sexuality thingy I've been dealing with Idk if I really should be making a thread about this, but it's an thing I've been going through recently, gonna spoiler it incase no one cares, it's kinda weird.
So I've been coming to terms with my sexuality a bit, and I've realized that my main attraction, regardless of gender, is masculinity. Male, female, anywhere inbetween I firmly get aroused by masculinity, while femininity doesn't do anything for me. I'm sure anyone knows this if they lurk the nsfw tag in thony's discord. The issue I've been having however is that despite being in so many gay friendly communities, I feel totally alone in having someone to relate to. It feels really weird to me how everyone can talk about how gay ponychan and it's surrounding community is, but everyone only ever seems to like the most effeminate men possible and traps/futa. It's just really frustrating being in what should be a really safe and welcoming environment and yet feeling totally alone in being actually the seemingly only traditionally homosexual (or i guess bisex dude who finds traditional gay aesthetics hot) man in the whole community. I end up making probably some shitty jokes about it mostly just to slightly vent some frustration without offending anyone.
I guess I'm posting this to know if I am justified in feeling this way? Is there anyone here who relates to me? I have this thought of like "i'm the only actual gay person here" which i know is stupid and irrelevant but does anyone else at least understand the sentiment? Am I'm just a moron who needs to deal with being an outlier?
Not tagging mature because I don't want this to be a porn thread, just sort of discussing the idea of this whole thing and if my feelings are warranted at all.
The Secret Correspondence Between Donald Trump Jr. and WikiLeaksStory on The Atlantic >Just before the stroke of midnight on September 20, 2016, at the height of last year’s presidential election, the WikiLeaks Twitter account sent a private direct message to Donald Trump Jr., the Republican nominee’s oldest son and campaign surrogate. “A PAC run anti-Trump site putintrump.org is about to launch,” WikiLeaks wrote. “The PAC is a recycled pro-Iraq war PAC. We have guessed the password. It is ‘putintrump.’ See ‘About’ for who is behind it. Any comments?” (The site, which has since become a joint project with Mother Jones, was founded by Rob Glaser, a tech entrepreneur, and was funded by Progress for USA Political Action Committee.) >The next morning, about 12 hours later, Trump Jr. responded to WikiLeaks. “Off the record I don’t know who that is, but I’ll ask around,” he wrote on September 21, 2016. “Thanks.” >The messages, obtained by The Atlantic, were also turned over by Trump Jr.’s lawyers to congressional investigators. They are part of a long—and largely one-sided—correspondence between WikiLeaks and the president’s son that continued until at least July 2017. The messages show WikiLeaks, a radical transparency organization that the American intelligence community believes was chosen by the Russian government to disseminate the information it had hacked, actively soliciting Trump Jr.’s cooperation. WikiLeaks made a series of increasingly bold requests, including asking for Trump’s tax returns, urging the Trump campaign on Election Day to reject the results of the election as rigged, and requesting that the president-elect tell Australia to appoint Julian Assange ambassador to the United States. >“Over the last several months, we have worked cooperatively with each of the committees and have voluntarily turned over thousands of documents in response to their requests,” said Alan Futerfas, an attorney for Donald Trump Jr. “Putting aside the question as to why or by whom such documents, provided to Congress under promises of confidentiality, have been selectively leaked, we can say with confidence that we have no concerns about these documents and any questions raised about them have been easily answered in the appropriate forum.” WikiLeaks did not respond to requests for comment. >The messages were turned over to Congress as part of that body’s various ongoing investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign. American intelligence services have accused the Kremlin of engaging in a deliberate effort to boost President Donald Trump’s chances while bringing down his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton. That effort—and the president’s response to it—has spawned multiple congressional investigations, and a special counsel inquiry that has led to the indictment of Trump’s former campaign chair, Paul Manafort, for financial crimes. >It’s not clear what investigators will make of the correspondence, which represents a small portion of the thousands of documents Donald Trump Jr.’s lawyer says he turned over to them. The stakes for the Trump family, however, are high. Trump Jr.’s June 2016 meeting with Natalia Veselnitskaya, a Russian lawyer with connections to Russia’s powerful prosecutor general, is already reportedly a subject of interest in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, as is the White House statement defending him. (Trump Jr. was emailed an offer of “information that would incriminate Hillary,” and responded in part, “If it’s what you say I love it.”) The messages exchanged with WikiLeaks add a second instance in which Trump Jr. appears eager to obtain damaging information about Hillary Clinton, despite its provenance.
#Mature YO- NEIGH SAYERS
Y DON'T CREAM COLORED PONIES, JUST FIND WILD ZEBRAS IN HUTS AND CROSSBREED SNUGGLE?
Well it's been a year. What has Donald Trump accomplished. If I have to be honest, I'd say nothing.
dialogue in porn>fap to a great untranslated doujin for like a year >it finally gets translated >the translated dialogue is absolute garbage and practically ruins the whole thing
what is the deal with this? how come it seems like porn with decent dialogue literally doesn't exist?
Potentially interesting. Much of the 2nd Age and first half of the 3rd Age has yet to be explored, like the circumstances surrounding the plagues and invasions from Angmar and the fall of the Northern Kingdom. (Those stupid video games don't count, obviously.)
