    Lockdown 2.0

    I feel there's a pronoun missing at the start here... Apparently 300k people have been ill for at least a month, and some 60k for at least three months: https://www.theguardian.com/society/2020/sep/08/60000-may-have-long-covid-for-more-than-three-months-uk-study UK official total cases is of...

    Why Conspiracy Theories?

    Bart somehow once got him to say "I'm a stupid moron with an ugly face, and a big butt, and my butt smells and I like to kiss my own butt", so I think this is very plausible.

    Wuhan Killer Sneeze (thanks Tea)

    Isn't it the case, though, that all drugs are decriminalized for personal use over there? I know that's not the same as actual legalization, but I can see why cops might take the view of "if they're not causing trouble or selling it themselves, then we'll leave them to it".

    Wuhan Killer Sneeze (thanks Tea)

    Yeah, the bio-engineering of AIDS was definitely one of the meaner tricks of the Secret World Government.

    Why Conspiracy Theories?

    Britain had wolves in it once, and they killed people's sheep and probably killed people too. But they were hunted to extinction. So the wolf problem was solved permanently, because no sheep is ever going to spontaneously turn into a wolf and start attacking other sheep. So a solution to the...

    Why Conspiracy Theories?

    This is why it's so delusional and unhelpful to imagine that you share no DNA in common with George Soros. I mean I guess it makes sense on a poetic level when you look at, I dunno, David Cameron, who is descended from William IV. But some of history's greatest tyrants have been the sons of...

    Why Conspiracy Theories?

    Yes, we all hate those who push us around and exploit us, naturally. With the unavoidable corollary that our boss is pushed around by his boss, and so on. But I'd have hoped for something a bit more nuanced and historically literate than "kill the masters" from a Game of Thrones fanatic...

    Why Conspiracy Theories?

    You're talking about people who do at least acknowledge the virus as real. There are many who don't. Some of these people get really mad even at other people who are wearing masks! And their justification is invariably that they're resisting some nebulous form of tyranny. I'm not making this...

    Election 2020

    Ok, I've mentioned them a fair few times. Granted. We each have our things - you with the reptilians, conspiracies and whatnot, padraig and ancient Rome, third and his baked beans. Fine. But it's annoying to have sufi saying "You think Bowie was a Nazi, haha, you big idiot" when three seconds of...

    Election 2020

    In response to droid saying someone else had called Bowie a Nazi: So "Bowie was not a Nazi" becomes "Bowie = Nazi"? @sufi you are being a total twat here.

    Election 2020

    When did I ever compare David sodding Bowie to a Nazi? I might have mentioned them in the same sentence because of his infamous Nazi salute. That doesn't mean he was one. Or Wuhan? What the hell are you on about? Or England? What? Mate, you called Remembrance Day poppies "fascist", remember...

    Why Conspiracy Theories?

    OK, a good example of how a persistent meme can arise out of (almost) nothing. But that bit of graf is real, and it's a symbol for a way of thinking that's becoming extremely widespread and isn't at all a positive thing. That is what I'm getting at. I'd have thought I wouldn't have to specify...

    Election 2020

    You've gone from cheering on Trump's re-election to piously lecturing me about Nelson Mandela in a couple of hours. This must be that seven-dimensional chess I keep hearing about.

    Election 2020

    Then why the constant posturing?

    Election 2020

    Godwin's Law doesn't apply if the comparison is justified. The guy made that that clear himself.
  16. Mr. Tea

    Election 2020

    You don't talk about civil disobedience and hunger strikes though, do you? You get a hard-on over mass death. You're being very disingenuous by suddenly taking this Nelson Mandela tone.

    Why Conspiracy Theories?

    It's a standard trope of "political correctness gone mad", but what's the relevance here?

    Election 2020

    Calling me 'inane' after your performance over the last few pages is pretty funny. But I see we're just at the stage of insulting each other now, which isn't very interesting.

    Election 2020

    The Fascists and Nazis achieved power by appealing to exactly the resentment you're expressing and framing it in exactly the same conspiratorial terms. I'm sick of hearing myself say this by now but you insist on pretending not to hear it every singe time.

    Election 2020

    No it fucking isn't, it's being part of a pitchfork-wielding mob. Or fantasizing about it, at any rate.
