so... Theoretically, someone could buy the Thork NFT and destroy it? All things TFES Thork would be gone forever?

We never want our mind to wake up from the illusion we created.

Why are we afraid? Because existance is a lie.


Naw dude, that's just you.

Technology & Information / Re: I need me more terabytes
« on: April 15, 2021, 12:25:50 PM »
I use samsung and Seagate for all my work data. The samsung has impressive speed when I need to pull data and work directly from it. Keep another back-up offsite in case of theft/water damage/fire If its stuff you absolutely cannot afford to lose.

I don't know why but I've always had some kind of thing against the online backup services like Google or I Drive. If they are charging $30 a month I would hope I get mountains of terabytes for that price. My webhost ($20-$30/year) has unlimited disk space with most of their plans so I get all the offsite back-up I can eat. (and I always get my money's worth at a buffet.) From time to time, I FTP data up to the webhost as back ups.

Of course, there are things that suck about this. FTP is slow and a hassle. My webhost, Hostgator, sucks ass for customer service and sucks generally. I can't have root privileges on my own web server. Having to restore local files from a webhost really sucks.

I've been running this for many years. Maybe I should get with the times and do something like you people are talking about.

Actually, the last thing you wrote was that it could become a huge deal.

It already is kind of a huge deal in the US due to the critical race theory garbage substituting for meritocracy.

You know, the kind of stuff you and the good doctor immediately posting above love to push as being legitimate.

"Yeah, I know I do all kinds of stuff, like lie, cheat, steal, drugs on a regular basis without seeking qualified treatment, and yeah, I have a prison record a mile and a half long" = "RACISM BY THE WHITE GUY!!!"

That's what this is really about for the Trump Republicans. They feel they losing their grip on power and the mongrels are rising. They see voting laws as defending their hard working, white, Christian family values from us libtards. (Libtards being anyone who isn't a Trumpian foot soldier.)

Yep, if you had a hard time making it as a white man in a white man's world, it's only going to get worse for you. That's why handing out water is a threat to you and corporate sponsored gerrymandering isn't.

I'm a conservative but until the Republicans get past this crap, I'm voting for lizards and Libertarians.

For years, the Republican party used their majority in Georgia to chop up black neighborhoods and poor parts of towns to break up their voting block power.  Everything they do is about holding onto their power. They would never do anything that would make voting more transparent or accessible for the general public. Anyone with such a storied career in public service and politics would know that.

This entire bill is more of the same and this arguing over water is just more crap to hide what they're really doing.

They're being more blatant now than ever in their attempts at voter suppression

How is preventing candidates from influencing voters at non-partisan polling places just before they vote considered voter suppression?

I notice that you guys have already given up on the line of argumentation that campaigns should be allowed to do that.

This wasn't an issue as long as Republicans were winning elections. Now that the Democrats are winning in Georgia, there's some kind of problem they have to legislate.

Understand that this move by Republicans has nothing to do with election integrity. 

Corruption in our electoral system has to do with gerrymandering, corporate money, ballot access laws. None of this is being addressed by the Republicans. This is about making it easier for the right people to vote and harder for the wrong people to vote. It is about the Republicans losing control of the state of Georgia and doing whatever it takes to regain it.

So Powell and her ilk get to keep pedling the claims without having to also prove it in a court of law.  And Trumpers just eat it up.

... and Vladimir Putin leans back in his comfy leather chair with a knowing smile.

I want to see a group of radicalized rednecks amped up on Russian propaganda take another run at the Capitol Building while the lizards are in charge.

Truckloads of hillbilly hamburger meat...

I do believe fraud occurs in every election and I know the election was illegitimate in that most of the states in question violated their own election laws without legislative consent.

Vladimir Putin's social media campaign was a success.

Sydney Powell’s defense in her defamation lawsuit against Dominion is that no reasonable person would take her claims as statements of fact.

https://lawandcrime.com/2020-election/sidney-powell-tells-judge-no-reasonable-person-would-believe-her-dominion-conspiracy-theories-were-statements-of-fact/

This was also the defense that Tucker Carlson used to defend his slanders against innocent people. The courts have said no reasonable person would believe this hyperbolic bullshit. Only an idiot would believe that this crap is real.

Well, we only have to go back a few pages to find people who believe this stupid shit. Not only do people believe it, it has become the foundation of the new conservative movement. Conservatives who believe stupid shit are now willing to carry out violence against our country to make their stupid shit real. I swear to God, if I had been a Capitol Police officer during the riots, I would have walked the halls and put a bullet between the eyes of every traitor I encountered. Ever play, The Last of Us? I would not have stopped until every clip I had was empty.

I'm a conservative but the conservative movement has been hijack by Putin zombies whose ignorance has made them susceptible to Russian propaganda. I will fight them in their support of Putin's agenda to rebuild a new Soviet Union. I don't care if I have to vote for liberals, Libertarians or lizards.

Tom Bishop can have the conservative movement. He can be the next Republican nominee for President. As long as the Republicans gets their platform from the National Enquirer, fuck them.

Trump could walk up the steps to Air Force One just fine: https://mobile.twitter.com/DanScavino/status/1372964618495213571

Actually, at 3 seconds into the video, looking closely at the hand railing, there is a blurriness. Obviously, a poorly done green screen.

A green screen fake press conference?

The conservative movement in America has been overrun by lizard hunting, pizzagate, conspiracy freaks. Normal conservatives no longer have a voice in this country.

BTW Republicans need to keep their stupid mouths shut about screwed up press conferences.

I mean c'mon, what's more cringe-worthy embarrassing than the leader of the free world begging a State official in Georgia to find 11k+ votes for him?

How about the leader of the Free World threatening those same state officials because they wouldn't lie for him?

Actually, maybe that's not embarrassing so much as frightening.

America is putting in more than you too. The argument revolving around the world's desire to loot America isn't a good one to prove that the world knows what's best for America.

Looting America?

We out consume every country on this planet per capita.

“With less than 5 percent of world population, the U.S. uses one-third of the world's paper, a quarter of the world's oil, 23 percent of the coal, 27 percent of the aluminum, and 19 percent of the copper,”

https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/american-consumption-habits/

But I'm guessing that's all liberal lies...

It was reported days ago that the gold statue of Trump that was paraded at CPAC was made in Mexico. Today, it is reported that it was made in China.

Sounds like good evidence that you are getting your information from bad sources.

I'm not sure what your post means. But the artist himself is an expat living in Mexico. He said it was assembled in Mexico and his business associate reports that the replicas are made in a factory in China that he specifically named.

I'm not sure why this would be a controversial issue. Every stick of the crappy private label Trump merch ever sold was made abroad.

BTW, you got to love the imagery of Christians worshipping at the altar of a golden idol.

Flat Earth Theory / Re: Why is there no standard map of the earth?
« on: March 03, 2021, 09:34:06 PM »
Is it possible the powers that be are hiding the fact of large areas of land that we the people are not even allowed to know about?  Sounds like something they would do if they could get away with it.  I do not know for sure but it sure looks interesting.

The powers-that-be are incompetent idiots that serve special interest and are at the mercy of their own lascivious appetites.

They are incapable of hiding their their own corruption much less the corruption of a worldwide organization. In America, entire presidential administrations have fallen because they couldn't keep a secret. There is no way the Donald could keep his mouth shut about UFOs, a flat Earth, or a large Earth.

Even with unlimited resources and no oversight, America's most top-secret agency failed to keep their most top secret program a secret. There is no way they're hiding Bigfoot or the shape of the Earth or anything else that would shake humanity.

Okay, I have the answer.  Temperature.  In the southern hemisphere planes flying between Africa, Australia, South America etc... Are all flying in warm weather.  Warmer at least then in Northern flight routes of comparable distance. 

This makes the planes fly less efficiently which explains the long flight times.  Planes always prefer to travel in colder temperatures if possible like they do in the Northern Hemisphere.

See the attached two pictures of flight paths and jet stream.

You just made up every word of that out of nothing. It's obvious you have no background in aviation. You have not one piece of evidence to back up anything you have said. You have no data regarding air speeds and air temperatures. You never spoke to one person who actually pilot aircraft on flights like these.

You are just desperately looking for excuses for your failed model of the world.
