Some cultures aren't as good as others.

This is the main takeaway. Any culture rooted in an Abrahamic religion will see atrocities such as this.

2nd warning was for replying to a thread from 2016 where the OP of said thread deleted their account long ago, in addition to being a low-effort shitpost even if the thread had been current/active.


EDIT - Pick which account you want to shitpost with. Either this one or your alt is going to get banned. Although I imagine both will end up banned shortly, regardless.

As I posted in the other Biden thread, keep it civil. You don't have to engage with someone if you don't think the conversation is useful or productive.

You're so dumb.

Don't do this.

Reminder to everyone participating in the thread to keep it civil. Also, feel free to actually discuss the Biden administration and its policies, aka things that matter a bit more than falling down or green screen conspiracies...

Technology & Information / Re: New laptop

I've been cycling through quite a few laptops lately, most recently a Yoga 6. I am considering just returning that and getting the base model M1 Air since I don't do any heavy tasks on mobile and I have a decent desktop for anything the Air can't handle. I should make a thread about it...

There’s nothing the Air can’t handle. I edit 4K video and RAW image files on it every week. My only regret is I didn’t wait for the upcoming Pro, since it’s supposed to bring back MagSafe charging.

Yeah this thing has been amazing to use so far. I was tempted to wait for the 14" Pro to launch as well, but I don't do anything on my laptop that would justify spending that much money. Not sure if they replace the 13" altogether and keep the 14" at the $1299 base price, or just start the 14" at a few hundred dollars more. I do miss MagSafe though, it was a bonehead move to ever get rid of it. Although it is nice to be able to use the same charger on my phone and laptop with usb-c.

Anyway, everyone should get an M1 Mac.

Well I ordered it. Going to go pick it up today. Thork's hype convinced me.

Reconciliation it is, then.

While I like free money (got my $600 yesterday) I hate the dems using reconceliation to push this through.

I wish Republicans would negotiate.  They seem to have forgotten how in the past 12 years.

Probably closer to 40 years... That will be what probably ends up leading to abolishing the filibuster by Democrats, which will get Uno reversed on Democrats if Republicans take over during the midterms.

Reconciliation is pretty much the only tool they have since Republicans and Democrats are light years apart on what a relief deal should look like. The Republican goal would likely just end up being months of negotiations and then not voting for a Democrat bill anyway.

I thought it may be useful to have a thread to discuss current events of the Biden administration without being drowned out by debating/rehashing the results of an election that was decided a long time ago. In the spirit of that idea, unless there is some new story that comes out about the election/fraud, keep the discussions on whether you think Biden is actually President or not out of this thread.

Biden signed a bunch of EOs undoing the policy set by the Trump admin. The current hot topic is the next covid relief package. Looks like student loan debt relief has been kicked down the road until summer or later. Also Pete Buttigieg is in charge of the trains now.

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Re: Coronavirus Vaccine and You
« on: February 01, 2021, 05:43:34 PM »
Why? You are already immune. How do you think you recovered from the disease instead of dying? Your body developed antibodies to overcome coronavirus. What does a vaccine do? Helps you develop antibodies to overcome the virus.
I am currently "trusting the science" in that the recent data I have seen implies the antibodies may not last all that long. If that isn't the case as more data comes in, I will reevaluate. I doubt I will be able to get the vaccine for at least several months anyway, so I will have plenty of time to consider my position.


I feel like the collective world has take an IQ bath and washed away all common sense and powers of reasoning.
Yes, anyone who doesn't share your opinion must be a low-IQ, irrational smoothbrain incapable of reason.

I recently recovered from covid. 2/10 would not recommend. My symptoms were moderate with only a couple of days bad enough worry me that it might get real bad. Then it went away. Assuming I don't have scarred lungs or damaged organs I don't know about, it was much easier than the actual flu.

Still going to get the vaccine, but am much less worried about dying in the meantime. Given the number of variants we are already seeing, I imagine covid is just going to become a part of life, much like the flu where the annual flu shot is based on the most prevalent strain(s) that year.

I can't really fault someone for not wanting the current vaccine if their decision is based on phase 3 trials being much shorter than any other medication on the market and doing their own risk analysis. I am not sure how many of those people there are compared to the people who think there is a 5G modem in the vaccine and that the government will be monitoring and controlling you forever (not sure why they would even need that since everyone has a smartphone).

TL;DR - Got the 'vid, didn't die. Will get the vaccine, but don't blame certain people for not getting it. The anti-vax crowd are giant douches and will eventually remove themselves from the gene pool when something more deadly eventually comes along.

Okay, but did you like it?

I am still processing my feelings on that; I probably posted about it too soon as I only finished the book a few hours ago. Right now, I like it like I like the FF7 remake. Super into it initially, then just a grind to get to the important bits and ending.
