General Chit Chat / Post-holiday Regrets

I didn't see a single trick-or-treater this year so now I have an entire bag of candy to eat.

I'm not generally a candy enjoyer.
This may take a while.
The Octagon / Okay, that's a twist...
October 15, 2023, 03:14:49 AM
I half expected to have restrictions or a "time out" on Twitter considering some of the recent recipients of my acerbic wit (RFKJr, IDF, Elizabeth Warren, etc.) but I'm currently locked out of Facebook, not Twitter.

The notice said it was due to "unusual activity" but that's a load of bollox. I've only been signing in with one device and I haven't been posting any differently than I usually do. It can only be the fact that I'm unabashedly not down with israel's genocidal rampage.

Unless- dammit!
I should have known better than Sharing those Calvin & Hobbes comics!

Or... could it be that The Death Fractal struck again, but this time it only nuked my own account? That would be embarrassing.

I'm tempted to blame it on Blocking so many obvious scammer accounts since I'm sure some of them are run by Facebook itself to make a little scratch on the side, but I don't have any empirical evidence to support that theory. Yet.

Oh well.
Guess I'll go see what kinds of hoops they want me to jump through so I can start yelling "Fuck Israel!" even louder than before until they nuke me again.

Politics / Bernie stans need to wake the fuck up
October 06, 2023, 07:34:53 PM
So... here we are again.
The movie 'Idiocracy' once more proves itself to be not a fictional frolic of a film, as it was claimed to be at the time, but an actual documentary about 'Murican society and governance. The whole "alternate future" angle and superficially comedic elements were only there to throw us off.

I speak of course of: Jamal Bowman.

In the nation's capital, a political cesspool brimming with ignorance both wilful and congenital, Jamal displays a truly stunning amount of ignorance that puts his fellow morons to shame.

That he with his own hand pulled a fire alarm is not in question. He admits to doing it. He's captured on video committing the act.

Why he did it is also not in question for anyone still capable of thinking thoughts not spoon-fed to them by corporate media. He wanted to delay or disrupt the voting process on a funding measure. I know it. You probably know it. Most people ALL OVER THE WORLD know it.

To me it doesn't matter if he did it in a momentary fit of irrational anger or if he truly believed it would benefit democrats in some way. Both reasons are disqualifying for someone who aspires to help RUN OUR FUCKING COUNTRY. He can't be trusted to behave reasonably and think rationally so the man's gotta go. Period.

Making the matter infinitely worse is his blatant transparent imbecilic lie that it was "an accident". Jamal used to be a middle-school principal. I don't doubt he suspended/expelled at least one student for doing the exact same thing. It also proves he damn well knows what a fire alarm looks like because schools have those things in practically every hall and classroom. Jamal knew exactly what he was doing and anyone denying it is full of shit.

Even his ridiculous excuse about "rushing to vote" shoots itself in the foot. He says he was surprised to find those doors closed meaning he was intimately familiar with that hallway and that vestibule. To reverse course in the next sentence and claim he thought the fire alarm would open the doors is beyond nonsensical... it's 100% unbelievable and insulting to the intelligence of everyone hearing it.

I almost said it was even insulting to Jamal's intelligence as well but frankly I see no evidence that Jamal has any intelligence to insult.

I'll be very curious to see how this plays out since Jamal broke the  exact same law (obstructing an official proceeding) that's been so liberally applied to defendants charged in connection to the Jan6 incident.

I don't believe he'll be punished because that's how little faith I have in our political and judicial systems. But he should be. Damn right he should be.

And they should double his punishment for trying to tell such a monumentally stupid lie about why he did it. That alone is worth 10-15 years safely locked away from any power or influence over 'Murican citizens.

Wow. Just... wow.
Politics / TDS remains an on-going epidemic

Site Features And Announcements / Rumble videos?
September 23, 2023, 02:04:27 PM
Does the site currently support embedding videos from Rumble and if not is that a feature that's being considered?

I just started re-uploading my Misc.Derbis videos (currently only on YouTube) to Rumble and intend to post future Misc.Derbis videos to Rumble exclusively.

Fuck YouTube.
I've known since it was gobbled up by Google that it was/is problematic but the latest stunt with Russel Brand is the last straw. I'll probably keep one of my channels there to post unserious and/or frivolous content but everything else will be on Rumble.
How many times will the media fall for this trick?

The missile that struck the market was Russian!
The missile that struck Poland was Russian!
The Russians blew up their own pipeline!
Etc. etc.

Maybe if those publications employed actual journalists instead of merely stenographers for the pentagon they wouldn't keep getting caught in lie after lie.

I wanted to paste a link to the actual NYT article but they have an annoying 'Give Us Money' popup.
Politics / Ray Epps
September 20, 2023, 02:23:44 PM
I almost posted this in News, but decided it's fundamentally political in nature...

"WASHINGTON (AP) — Ray Epps, a former Marine who became the target of a Jan. 6, 2021, conspiracy theory, has been charged with a misdemeanor offense in connection with the U.S. Capitol riot and is expected to plead guilty, according to court papers filed Tuesday.

Epps, who claimed in a lawsuit filed this year that Fox News Channel made him a scapegoat for the Capitol riot, is charged with disorderly or disruptive conduct on restricted grounds, court records show."

It's not a 'conspiracy theory' that Epps is seen in multiple videos telling people to go into the capital building on January 6th. In at least one clip he was acting so brazenly inciteful that people around him started yelling "Fed! Fed! Fed!" at the obvious agent provocateur.

Maybe he's hired the same lawyer who almost got Hunter Biden that sweetheart deal?
Fucking hell.

Ordinarily gossip and I get along about as well as burning thermite and cold aluminum but- anyway.

Not long ago I was watching a few episodes of 'Firefly' and realized I *still* don't know exactly what Joss Whedon did to suddenly become such a pariah.

I saw a lot of insults and disdain but nothing about what he'd been accused of doing.

Can anyone tell me, generally, what that's all about?

Graphic details are unnecessary/discouraged, if it's all the same.

I'd just like to finally have a clue since he has written/directed some amazing stuff and it just feels weird to even say that while not knowing the whole story.
...haven't gotten much sleep but at least everything (I think) that has an update got the update.

I'd almost forgotten I even installed Discord so it's almost like finding a new prog, too. Yay!
HBO has been re-airing GoT; a season every day.

They're about finished with the 8th season right now.

I still can't decide if the HotD trailers/teasers are awesome or not but I'll be watching it anyway, at least the premiere.

I even have a big ol' bottle of pinot noir set aside for the occasion.

That became a bit of a tradition... having a glass (or two) of wine with each new GoT episode.
