The bottom line: Are you saying that you are in support of Russia's invasion of Ukraine? Just trying to cut to the chase.

If the Putin supporters on this forum believe that Putin is a nice guy who is acting in the best interest of Europe to stomp out Nazis. Just say so.

If you believe Putin would never launch cyber-attacks against our infrastructure and social media or spray someone in the face with neurotoxin, just say so.

Own your communist sympathies and there will be a high place waiting for you in the new Soviet Union.

Also if the presence of Nazis in a country is reason to be invaded, those of us in the United States need to be careful. We got Nazis coming out the ass.


Read the goddamn thread. Jesus.

Even the fucking US press corp was reporting on this shit a couple of years ago.

Like I wrote, a lot of goddamn NAZI apologists... Hillary would be so proud!

Dude, just be honest with yourself. You support Russian rolling across Europe to protect the world from 'Naxis.' Just like Trump. you recognize that Putin, 'has a lot of love.'

That makes you a pinko, commie sympathizer.

This’ll sort it out!
... that's just dumb.  Musk would be beaten to a pulp.

I don't know. Elon is way bigger, younger and can probably download any fighting style into his brain.

Putin was killing people back when Elon was still in grade school.

if Russia doesn’t like it they can JUST STOP INVADING!

Putin has just as much right as America did to stop Cuban Missile Crisis. When you start putting bioweapons and conventional weapons near your enemy county's border you are provoking them into war.

Big surprise and shocker why Russia would invade Ukraine.

All you need for an invasion is to accuse someone of having nuclear weapons or bioweapons. This is what we did in Iraq.

When the Russian and Chinese troops arrive in America to liberate us from the tyranny of Joe Biden's liberal Nazi homosexual immigrants and destroy our nuclear weapons, Tom and Action will be there waving flags and cheering at their arrival.

The Republican Party is dead to me. They are traitors and commie sympathizers.

Yes, I'm sure once Putin has contained the Nazi threat in Ukraine, he will move on to rescue the next European country. Once all of Europe is free from Nazis, homosexuals, Free Press and locally managed elections then he will move on to the United States.

Really, this forum has something called CN for such Russia Gate BS.

Remember when Trump coined the phase 'Russia Hoax.' The idea that Russia would never do such a horrible thing. At the moment those words were coming out of his stupid face, Russia was deep in the engineering phase of the Solarwinds hack. This allowed Russia to penetrate deeply into our government computers completely unnoticed. They would still be there except they got too greedy about privilege escalation and data exfiltration so they got caught.

Remember when Trump proposed a 'Joint Cybersecurity Task Force' with Russia in front of the whole world. Putin had to bite down on his lower trying to keep from busting out laughing. The delighted look on his face was priceless.

You bought into this idea that Russia is portrayed as evil in some multi-generational, worldwide, mass media smear campaign. The Republicans are selling this idea to the American public to curry favor with Putin and gain their support in the next election.

BTW: Europe is not Africa. Ukraine is not Somalia and Russia is not Ethiopia. There are currently no nuclear weapons on the African continent.


Vladimir Putin has long known that American stupidity is a weapon of unimaginable power. He's used that weapon to conscript an army of ignorant zombie traitors that supports his agenda to dominate Europe and attack America.

Some of these zombie traitors believe in space lizards, some believe in the cannibal pedophile cabal. They believe all kinds of stupid shit.

All Ukrainians support their military. Their military officially uses a NAZI salute/greeting.

We can hope to develop advanced defense systems against fighter jets or missiles. But there's no stopping the power of dumbass.

NAZI elements of the Ukraine National Guard forces are NOT engaged in the killing of large populations of Muslims in Ukraine.

So you believe this is why Putin wants to invade Ukraine. You believe he has no further designs on Europe?

Putin really is a nice guy huh?

To be fair I only hear this rhetoric from the QAnon branch of the Republican party.  Almost all Republican leadership strongly backs Ukraine.  I'm looking at the front page of Fox News and it is coming down way harder on Putin than it is on Biden.  And if Fox News is hammering anyone harder than Biden then that's really saying something.

It is possible that that'll change in the same way that "normal" Republicans adopted the positions of the insane Republicans.

All that needs to happen for Republicans to abandon Ukraine and support Putin will be Trump doing so. True to his erratic nature, he's already lurched between praising Putin and condemning the invasion, but if he "settles down" in support of Putin, Republicans will be quick to follow suit. It's also important to note here that Putin has successfully manipulated Trump into taking his side multiple times over the past several years, and I don't see why he'd have a harder time doing so in this situation. It's not like Trump gives a shit about Ukraine to begin with. I doubt he could even find it on a map.

Middle class white men have been a staple of the Republicans for decades but now that demographic is dwindling nationally. That's why they see unwhite people of other classes as a threat. That's also why they've taken to this shameless gerrymandering across the country.
In their desperation, they are romancing white supremacists, conspiracy theory freaks and the mentally enfeebled. They no longer talk about real issues, they're just frightening elderly voters with pictures of homosexuals and Hillary Clinton's face. They know that Russia will bring huge resources to the next election and they're willing to let Putin have Europe in exchange. They are traitors to their own country, they certainly don't care about Ukraine.

They know they can use bullshit to whip up the ignorant freaks into frenzy. For example:
Here is why Putin is in Ukraine.

The NAZIs are committing acts of atrocity against ethnic groups and now threatening Zelensky with assassination.

I don't see any reason to care about this more than other world conflicts.

Because Russia is run by an autocrat who holds the keys to one of the largest nuclear arsenals on this planet?

I guess if you really believe that Putin is a nice guy who wants the best for the people of this nation, then I can understand why you don't care.

This is what Hitler was saying in 1920 to cheering crowds...

"This is the first demand we must raise and do [reversal of the Versailles Treaty provisions]: that our people be set free, that these chains be burst asunder, that Germany be once again captain of her soul and master of her destinies, together with all those who want to join Germany. (Applause)

And the fulfillment of this first demand will then open up the way for all the other reforms.  And here is one thing that perhaps distinguishes us from you [Austrians] as far as our programme is concerned, although it is very much in the spirit of things: our attitude to the Jewish problem.

For us, this is not a problem you can turn a blind eye to-one to be solved by small concessions.  For us, it is a problem of whether our nation can ever recover its health, whether the Jewish spirit can ever really be eradicated.  Don't be misled into thinking you can fight a disease without killing the carrier, without destroying the bacillus.  Don't think you can fight racial tuberculosis without taking care to rid the nation of the carrier of that racial tuberculosis.  This Jewish contamination will not subside, this poisoning of the nation will not end, until the carrier himself, the Jew, has been banished from our midst. (Applause)

Hitler was a creature of hate. Your attempt to paint him as a persecuted soul defending his home is as wrong as painting the earth as flat.

But this really reveals how you actually feel about members of the 'Jewish race.'

It was pretty clear historically that Hitler hated the Jews long before any of this Naxi propaganda was printed. It's the same hate boner that rages anti-Semites to shoot up synagogues today.
That's why people like Tom call Jewish people a 'race.' It's another way to make them different and hate on them.

Did anyone else notice that the original image in Tom's 2:03 post changed? It was literally and obviously a fake newspaper headline and now it's just a quote. I wonder if the hate mongers really fall for this stupid crap or if they just think they'll fool others with it.


Just because some Republicans want to support the expansion of the Soviet Union doesn't mean we want them invading our country. The same is probably true in Ukraine.

I don't see any reason to assume that Putin is in the wrong.


Fuck it. You do you. I guess someone needs to stick up for putin.

This is the new thing for Republicans. They have to support Putin and keep him happy, just like they do any of their other mega-donors.

If they really wanted to make some big city moves, NK would just start artillerying SK, China would take Taiwan, and Russia would keep rolling their tanks to Paris. And there's not a lot anyone could do about it.

There is but everyone's afraid Putin would just nuke the world out of spite.

Maybe the U.S should just surrender to Putin and become part of Russia.  That's what the Republicans want.

Even the very cheap Burp Suite Certified Practitioner is going to command more respect.

I've been using the community version of Burp for a while and didn't know this was a thing. I use Owasp ZAP for anything with real brute force because the freebie Burp is so severely throttled.

I may go for this. I already have a good head start on the software so it should go easy and I can always learn some new tricks. $99 dollars to get a certificate suitable for framing and add 1/32 of an inch to the size of my IT dick is a pretty good deal.

Even if I want to compete for a pen testing job, the Comptia cert looks really puny next to others like the CEH that cost thousands of dollars.
For what it's worth: I'm currently a pentester

Another piece of the puzzle falls into place...

I think I just like stacking certs and working at my comfy Socialist government job. But for real, I had a 2nd interview today with a managed security service provider and I think I'll take it.

Yep, I'm doing the Security + exam, probably late December, Early January. Not for anything specific now, just for down the road.

 I want to do Pentest + because it looks like fun. The performance based questions are like little CTF challenges.

OK, just passed Security +.  It was no fucking fun at all. Holy crap, it sucked.
But it's a good general cert that can help in a few IT roles. maybe extra money...

I was going to do Pentest + because it's software I already know and something I like doing but everybody wants to be a hacker. Pentesting is super niche with limited jobs and lots of applicants. Even if I want to compete for a pen testing job, the Comptia cert looks really puny next to others like the CEH that cost thousands of dollars.

I need to sharpen up skills that are more widely marketable. I was thinking about some Microsoft certs so I spun up a 2019 Server to work with Active Directory management.

I created a user. His name is Tim, he's a transvestite. He is in a group that has permissions to access the network printer.

I, uh, I'll try again one more time. You are currently not in AR, and this is not a thread for you to sperg about distances.

Yes! Enough of these spergifications.

This particular thread is about the impact of debate on changing people's minds.

I can listen to a debate with an open mind. I want to learn something new, I want to find out the truth.

If someone has good evidence of Flat Earth I want to see it. I don't believe in the globe model because of some emotional attachment or childhood indoctrination. I believe in the globe model because it tells me exactly the size and shape the Australian continent, where it's located and what time it is there.  When I talk to people in Australia, they confirm everything the globe model reports. If you have some map or model that does a better job, I want to see it.

But typically in a debate when someone has no evidence, they collapse into name calling and angry shouting.

The map is exactly as accurate as it's the same physics.
Take a logarithmic X and Y axis and draw a circle around (1000,1000) with diameter 1000. I will not longer look like circle.
Are logarithmic scales therefore "wrong" and need to be "reexamined"?

How do you measure a distance on a globe scale-model?
- You take ruler and measure the distance. (Incidentally note rulers don't fit to globes very well. Ideally you'd need a curvy ruler)
- You calculate the distance using math (multiplying by the scale factor)

You measure distances on the flat-earth representation of physics exactly the same way. (Do note that distances are not scale and rotation invariant so you might find this more akin to finding distances on a logarithmic scale)
- you find start and end point
- you calculate the distance using math. (eg haversine)
Do note, in practice i very seldomly see people calculating distances using globes. Most people just use coordinates and maths.

Okay, so what does your map report as the distances from New York to San Francisco then San Francisco to Brisbane then Brisbane to Perth?
