i've heard a lot about how he sounds old and tired, but i have yet to hear of anything in the realm of actual public policy that should make me think he couldn't handle the job. if anything, his presidency has been remarkably active.
Yea, but bitches love appearances and platitudes. We can agree it's dumb, but Joe's "haha funny old grandpa" reputation was torpedoing his chances

nice, now we can have another US political campaign in which Trump bullies a woefully underprepared woman, uniting the misogynist vote with the "but funny man said things better" electorate

I could write a thesis on how this image alone won Trump the 2016 election.
Please do.

Tom, do you think you could try posting some memes that match the description in the OP, rather than ceaselessly shilling for Trump? Come on, let's actually enjoy something for once.

Like, c'mon man, you trawl some of the ugliest parts of the Internet to find your talking points. Surely you have some of these to share:

Wait, since when do we care about what "a lot of people" think or say? Kinda goes against our whole thing.

It's a Catch-22, the only way to get rid of the big parties is through PR, the only way to get PR is to get rid of the big parties.
I mean, we could have a referen—
wait no
let's not do that

Yes, it is untrue that "a lot of young women" are being raped by their sisters.
I guess it depends on how you define "a lot". Many of the issues affecting "a lot" of Americans (as used by American politicians) tend to affect a miniscule proportion of the population.

Biden was so bad last night that he told women their sister might rape them, and that isn't even in the top 20 trending things he said or did.
Are you suggesting this statement is untrue, or otherwise bad?

You can stop shitposting, or you can stop posting. I already explained this to you, and I won't be repeating myself

Tom -- the above is a very ironic post coming from you. Need I remind you of what the FES says about Photographic Evidence?
You don't, but apparently I do need to remind you that this sort of shitposting is not acceptable in the upper.

To be fair, the MIT guy was likely right - I imagine no one did ask that question before

How was I supposed to know it was a slogan?
lol. lmao, even.

You could have easily copied the wikipedia link in your post
Should I provide a Wikipedia link for every common word and phrase I use? Where do you draw the line? Am I OK to use the word "chair", or should I automatically assume you won't know that one either?

You're an adult. Take responsibility for your own education. If you don't know something, look into it instead of spewing judgemental garbage based on nothing but your imagination.

Choose reality.

Perhaps you should consult a dictionary on the meaning of "crime".
That's really funny. You should have done that yourself, y'know. I guess the "chair" joke above wasn't even far off.

You have easy access to the world's greatest repository of knowledge, unprecedented in its vastness. You also have the right instinct - one could use a dictionary here. All that's missing is a tiny bit of self-awareness that would let you out the pieces together.

Sigh. Very well. For your benefit: crime.

Christ on a bike.

No thanks, I try to never have my fun come at another's expense.
Well, that's demonstrably false... but you're also the only person here to mention doing anything at someone else's expense.

It's fine if you're unfamiliar with the slogan. You're not expected to know everything at all times. But instead of just imagining what it means in your head, you could try educating yourself. As is often the case with you, fixing your knowledge gaps is a quick Google search away.

Choose reality, rather than choosing your own reality. :)

but " crime"?  that seems pretty extreme.
You should try it, it's fun. Just don't get caught, it's not fun if you do.

I have a question.

Now, I'm pretty pro-freedom as people go. The "be gay, do crime" kinda guy. I'm probably out of touch with Christian America. But...

Why does anyone care whether or not Trump slept with a porn actress? And, for what it's worth, why do we care if Bill Clinton had his cock sucked by Monica Lewinsky? What does marital fidelity/ability to get one's dick wet have to do with running a nation?

I genuinely don't get it. Please be kind.

Or, more likely, they don't and are exposed as grifters.
We already know they're grifters. They've been exposed mutliple times. Nothing changed. What makes this time special? How is a couple of RE'ers embezzling investing $60k going to change anything here? Please, be as specific as you can. I'd be fascinated to learn what the endgame here is!

In the meantime, no matter how much you try to idealise your friends here, they're going to accomplish very little here, other than personally get richer. They're not even swiping at FE.

And I guess the point is who should this bloke have approached?
Earnest FE'ers. There are plenty of them, and plenty of places to find them. Plenty of RE'ers who know where to find them, including some of the ones involved in the "experiment". The reason they chose not to utilise that ability? Well, I already told you my suspicions. I guess you could ask them? :)

Who is the authority in FE?
You keep clinging to this idea that there needs to be an "authority" in an expressly anti-authoritative movement. Demanding to speak to the general manager of anarchists. I can only wish you the best of luck with that, or point out that not all collectives adhere to your colonialist mindset.

Once you get serious about this, you could maybe try a different approach.

You are sneering at YouTube FE'ers, questioning their sincerity. Don't some of them call you "controlled opposition"? It all feels a bit Judean People's Front vs the People's Front of Judea, from the outside.
Does it, though? Are you really that stupid? Or are you just making a point because you think it makes you sound profound? After all, you already repeatedly voiced your opinions on people's sincerity here. Are you really going to pretend it's all up in the air now that it's convenient for you to do so? Do you think you'll be taken seriously if you do that?

Would you like me to start fishing out the stupidest people RE has to offer and pointing out that "welp, it's not like there's an authority on RE, so we should just treat these people as equal to everyone else 🤷‍♀️"? Let's face it - you would be very quick to decry it unfair.

But is a torch a good representation of a sun which shines in all directions?
Yes, once you consider EA and scale.

Is solid glass a reasonable approximation for the atmolayer in terms of the way light through the medium.
Yes, once you consider EA and scale.

And isn't the FE sun inside where the dome is and above and circling the earth - he seems to have to shine the light more from the side to get the effect.

In terms of the 24 hour sun at Antarctica, I'm struggling to visualise how that would work.
That's what the glass dome model is for - visualisation. You already saw it. You're perfectly capable of recalling that visualisation.

My question is why can't RE belief be saved by "well, it might be ..."
It can, and it regularly is. I'm not sure what you're trying to accomplish here.

Is it the case that RE has to be complete, consistent, and flawless, while FE can have inconsistencies and not correlate to observations
It is not. Now, you just need to convince your compatriots that this goes both ways.
