  1. the yellow shirt was the closest thing i could find relating to winning the TdF edit: o look, my 13000th post...
  2. I vaguely remember you talking about this before, but do these pro-trumpers get their ideas through Facebook and Fox? And the Fucking NRA perhaps. So we have the three Fs of the F-ing Fu Fux Clan.
  3. Good to hear things are getting "better" again! Does this mean we can expect you winning the Tour de France any time soon?
  4. Took me a second. "White noise!?" .... " Aaaaaah.....yeah, that white noise".
  5. Looks like Brexit comes at the right time! /sarcasm
  6. Thread's turning into a "Intelligent Lives Matter!" discussion *braindances slowly out of thread*
  7. Currently at Defcon level 3, I see. No sweats. ?
  8. Yeah, here in the netherlands as well. Although here, it's more aimed towards institutional racism in the Netherlands and not about white supremacy. The institutional racism feels like it has more to do with ignorance and unawareness in the first place. And less with white supremacy beliefs. At least, up until now. Those beliefs might be less outspoken around here, but still present. You never know. White supremacy which is silent just looks like ignorance. Anyways, if you're familiar with the whole "Black Pete" debate, his days seem finally numbered. That took way too long for peop
  9. If you want some modern techno, go here https://hardwax.com The new Regis album has some good tunes.
  10. Well, that would certainly explain why Lady G went from never-Trump to pro-Trump. If you know stuff about Lady G, she will dance for you in every possible way. Interested to see if she's moving back to her older more critical self
  11. Not sure about that, but I hope Mexico is going to pay for his wall/fence.
  12. What was that guy doing? That was not a "walk up to" and more like a "walk up against". Not defending those officers. It was a stupid shove. But that guy was behaving awkward, to say the last. And that's def. not "killing at will". Come on. If that's an attempt at murder, you can go to a rock concert and put the entire mosh pit into custody.
  13. you mean "she" "she" could be anything really. perhaps an 8 years old. who knows. Sorry, I'm not getting bothered by seeing ignorance on the internet. And people being bothered by it, sorry, but that just looks equally ignorant to me.
  14. "Chief Technological Officer" Cygnus ;D
  15. This is a good 30 mins primer. The anti-capitalists will probably resent me for posting it. But it's really this simple.
  16. Chen might be more equipped, but I'd argue it's both similar and completely different to what it means for us civilians. Like us, each country has a financial position. And that position will define how easy or difficult it will be to get stuff financed. It becomes complicated when countries go bankrupt. More info: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sovereign_default The system is basically built on trust. Could have long discussions about gold standards, bitcoins and whatever. But in the end, it all boils down to the same, if you ask me. Essentially, if I ask you to borrow me some m
  17. China? I guess China will be the new standard in 10 years from now. Or perhaps sooner. *grabs facemask*
  18. Spiritually, I agree. But if you look around, you see so many examples of norms being destroyed and civility being trampled on, I can only wonder whether society is still capable of being a democracy. I know this is mostly my perceptions being fed by the media. But the thing is, a democracy is based on trust. And if the people have lost trust, well, what do you do? I'd personally jump on the Obama bandwagon. But that bandwagon only works if enough people jump on it as well. I'm having my doubts. (I mean, how many facepalms can I expect by saying I'd jump on the Obama bandwagon...)
  19. What am I looking at? Not sure what you mean. Most important thing I've noticed is: where did that women go!? And: hey, these guys are in "normal" police outfits instead of those semi enforced army nonsense. That's a ...positive....?
  20. this guy just wants to start a civil war. i mean, you wouldn't believe it, but at this point it's safer to just take him at his word: he wants to fight the liberal mob. i'd take it literally.
  21. easy there. don't shoot the messenger. it's the conclusion of that article dcom posted. The strong point of that article was the way it summarised American culture and it's impact on the way US is, or isn't, governed. I don't think it will happen though. Simply because of ... well, remember that discussion between Cuomo and McConnel a couple of weeks ago? NY is a net payer, keeping the Kentucky's above water. You can't just stop those financial connections. Ironically, the discussions in the EU are similar, but come from the opposite side. As the countries with weaker financial posit
  22. Great read! The quote you posted doesn't do it justice though, imo. It ironically reads like any other "30-word Facebook post". Without any hint of self-reflection. But again, it doesn't do it any justice. The TLDR version: US is too hellbent on independence, so it might be better to move towards a union of states. Similar to the EU. Or my interpretation: the US sucks at governing the US. Not saying I agree. But it's an interesting read nonetheless.
  23. Talking about the Dutch situation?
