He needs an incredible belt to hold them in one piece without tearing at the seams too....Never mind the genes, its the belt...what I would love to know is how they are weaving carbon nanotube fiber at such a macro-scale.....because no conventional material would be capable of restraining that thing without splitting like the muff of a kitten gangfucked by a troop of silverback gorillas,

Was that a joke? because with my off color jokes, I target every race or group equally.

Did you hear the one about the autistic hindu yogi found with his eyes poked out?

His last act was to start rocking and stimming. Unfortunately he was on his bed of nails at the time.

What do you call a hindu who's turned around and become an atheist? a hindon't.

What do you call the spazz definition of torture? a one armed woman with rett syndrome hanging from a cliff.

Whats dark, furry, full of liver poisons and mugs other, white, mold colonies in the wallpaper whenever the house owners turn off the lights? Aspergillus nigger. (yup, I even know a couple of naughty biochemistry/biology jokes)



Did you hear about the time a chef with MR got done for homophobia he was innocent of?

He was roasting a plate of faggots at the time...

How to you stop a chav from drowning? you take your foot off of the back of his head.

How SHOULD you stop a chav from drowning? 'what? did I hear you right? you must be kidding me'

I've got jokes for everybody and jokes at the expense of every group. Well i might struggle for say, the waorani amazonian tribe, or barely contacted remote islanders, but MOST of everybody. Its only racism if its both done with hate and disproportionate, no?

And I could tell a jew joke and wish you no offense whatsoever, QV, believe you me, I have no reason to wish ill upon you.

I'm just wondering what was covered over this time.


So far, these outbursts of media bait have inevitably buried some other piece of news.
This isn't the first time wondering if maybe you're one of my sockpuppets. Was just about to say, everything since trump took office has been over sensationalized hype about what crap spills from Trumps lips or tweety fingers. It all strikes as a diversion tactic because the news isn't reporting on the context of the political/governmental happenings surrounding the hoopla. The news isn't reporting on the content or the outcome of the meeting, only OMG Trump said shithole.

I have a hard time remembering the last crisis - The Wolf book - all but forgotten after 48 hours. That was going to bring him down then this last thing sucked the air right out of that.

Remember how the Russia thing morphed into Obstruction of justice which morph into mentally unfit and now I think is morphing into racist.

Like a laserlight and a cat.

Now who knows apart from bashing Trump and chasing the laserlight, what the Democrats are about? Who are their leaders? Who are they rallying behind? What is their message?

Deflecting again, I see.

I do not think you do see. In fact, my premise is that you are ideologically blinded by your political and personal hatred of Trump and what you believe he represents to the point that you are unable to look at him with any reasonable rationality.

But let's assume for the moment that my strongly held belief in your ideological blindness is not true. How is what I said deflecting and if so from what exactly?

Let's assume for a moment that you are NOT deflecting. That, unfortunately, means that you are clueless.

I'd go with deflection if I were you.

Basic leadership skills 101...

1. Addressing major problems/disasters/tragedies that effect people's lives when they occur or soon after they occur.

2. Reassuring people that those problems are at the very least "being looked into" so that the possibility of them occurring again will be less likely.

State problem and Hawaii certainly should do that. I am sure you have contacted Hawaii and let them know rather than looked at this as a Federal issue which it was not.....right? (Of course not. I know you did not).

While it is touching that you'll support Trump no matter what, I'm really glad that your leadership style remains rare.

There is a lot I do not support Trump in.

Again IS his leadership style rare?

Benghazi - Video narrative





Floods - Martha's vineyards



9/11 - Keep reading



Or is your outrage a little selective? His was NOT a real National issue but rather a state fuck up.

No, this is not deflection it is addressing your assertion of rareness. But again, these are was there a national emergency? Was there a real threat for him to address? Or did Hawaii make an error that affected it's citizens?

A deflection is a deflection by any other name. Gotta love your persistence, tho.

No, I do get it.

Trump is the only President or person in political office in American history not to have jumped on crisises or on National Emergencies to your satisfaction and to have given appropriate response to the American public.

That is what you seem to be saying.

The reason why, even with these obvious parallels of past situations of National Emergencies having been dealt in similar or arguably worse ways by others, they did not outrage you, is that they were not Trump. 

Now I have, of course, pointed out that the false alarm was....well false. That it was NOT a National Emergency. That it was a state based stuff up with no damage nor National impact....unlike Bush's 9/11 crisis, Hillary's lies about Benghazi, and Obama's reaction to the Louisiana floods. I have also pointed out that the State of Hawaii was both responsible for the stuff up and as such needs to be the one responsible for addressing concerns generating from the mistake they made RATHER than the President. They also need to change procedures and/or training to make sure something as ridiculous does not happen again.

How this in ANY way becomes the President's issue or his fault is quite beyond me.

So far from deflecting, I have addressed both the issue and also given reasoning why I believe YOU see it as something other than what it really is. That issue that would dismiss the seriousness of other worse and more egregious examples of what you claim is terrible when it happens with others is simply that you hate Trump.

THAT is an ideological position. Not actually an indictment on Trump but rather virtue signalling your hatred and a want to create a different standard to hold him to. That is fine. It does not make it deflection and it does not really make any strong case to him being good, bad or indifferent.

Plenty to criticise him for but this is pretty weak and simply comes across as you needing to create reasons to be unreasonably outraged.

Briefly, I considered trying to explain in simple words what leadership is about, but glancing through the above I realised there's no point. You wouldn't understand. Suffice to say that most past presidents (including George W) did better than Trump.

As for discussing social justice, I doubt there is a meaningful discussion to be had with Scrap on that front. It's all cute pejoratives and name-dropping for him.

An there's a very good reason for that. Social Justice movements have all been hijacked by ideological puritans who want to reform society along ideals of human nature that have been thoroughly discredited by most psychologists and evolutionary psychologists in particular. 

Specifically, they believe in the notion of the human mind being a "blank slate" that is the formed entirely by society at large and there is no inherent biological difference between the brains of men and women. This is the point that James Damore made that got him fired from google.

They also buy into the false beliefs of racial identity movements that whites came to dominate the modern world because white people are somehow inherently pathological. They believe that all cultures are equally valid (except whites which they often deny even exist) despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary, that cultures have trajectories and at any given moment in history, some cultures will be vastly outperforming other cultures in terms if advancements in science, math and engineering.

Social Justice is ultimately an anti-intellectual movement that will destroy itself soon enough.

You present your argument as if itself was a belief system. Theirs is a narrow world.

FYP.

You're not going to get away with calling me the dogmatist, for pointing out dogmatism.

It takes more than editing a reply. Stop acting like one and I will stop.

Her Ladyship is not in pain, is she? I really hope not. Dental pain especially is among the worst of all. That would sadden my heart deeply to think of her in pain, as her smile, does the opposite.

Thank you, walkie. And I find your response in your point of it being unfair to me NOT to point out my faults or failings, for a true friend, they ought to do so.

And Walkie-I was not aware, as you say quite to the extent of it, although I was strongly under the impression you were highly susceptible to cold or excess heat. I was, I hope, not being selfish, in myself taking comfort in the fact that you had found comfort yourself. I did not intend to 'steal' your comfyness. Only to celebrate the fact that one I consider a friend, and one I trust (rare, very rare, you are someone I do trust to quite the extent I do. What that extent is, you know, walkie, so I'll not say it here, and not that I would anyway, certainly not to defend myself against anything whatsoever, or for that matter either to make a point or illustrate a concept, would I mention the name of the one you know that relates to, walkie, to others in general or worse, en masse)

I just wanted you to know I was happy for your happiness, that your  finally being warm and comfortable warmed ME up, because the friend who was being harmed by the cold, was now, once again, warm. For you are a being of value to me. I need no other reason than that I care about your wellbeing, I care also for your joy or lack of it, I care for your health, mental or physical or both.

Please, nobody think that my thought processes here, were of selfish nature. Rather, they were and indeed are still, empathic in nature. I am more so  than most aspies, and quite unusually so for a Kanner's/classic autie.

And to answer the question would I say the same thing to a male friend? yes and no. No, in that there would be a difference in the sense of fr.ex gender-specific pronouns or adverbs, but yes in the sense that if I care for a person I care for them. It does not mean I want to fuck them, it does not mean I fancy them, it does not mean I am attracted to them. Nor does it (in the case of females) automatically either, rule out finding a female attractive. (however, with the exception of a certain few individuals, a very, very, very rare handful, and I mean literally a handfull, if that, of all the people I know, on and off I2, in most cases if asked I would turn most people down. Almost always. For that, I have my reasons, and will not be making them plain to others. Again for that, I have my reasons. Well, reason, singular. Walkie knows what it is, actually, as does one other, and only one other, here, and one other living person, perhaps two, with a third who unwelcomly, knows what I know in that specific context, and who was later found to be a vile, traitorous, borderline bitch from hell and general noxious creature in every possible manner.
