If you wonder, why someone forbids MK, which could be used to study human anatomy, from exposing female beauty, jealousy is one apparent explanation:

Yeah, yeah, yeah, a few hundred years ago science and religion you were inseparable, which meant scientists like Galileo were persecuted by the Church because their rationalism threatened the power of their dogma.

Fuck you Nature.

I think i'm supposed to tag someone, but i can't remember who.

Cunth Cunth ? brap brap ? I don't know. Whoever it is probably has a 6th sense for sniffing out posts like this.
As someone who actually lived in a country to which uneducated folks of The West would refer to as communist (USSR and no, it was a Socialist country that was claiming to be building communism) I call BS on the "starving" claims. It was a thing in the beginning of the century, but that was it. Most grown ups in USSR were overweight.

The only real famine was early post civil war times and mostly affected Ukraine (Holodomor).
In the time referenced in that NYT article, dear god...

Back in the time referenced in the article.
My grandma (who lived in a village).
Was buying.
Bread.
To feed.
Pigs.
As did most of her neighbors.

There were shortages of certain type of food, as price was fixed & low and production couldn't meet demand (e.g. black caviar) but you could still get it from the black market (my parents did).
But there was no shortage of food in general, let alone famine. (fuckiing crazy ideas)

This simply demonstrates how detached from reality "common knowledge" about countries is.

That story about Webster's redefining the term sexual preference literally in response to the SC hearings should outrage people. If there was a media worth a damn, that would be a much bigger story.

The definition was fine end of September, but oddly right on Oct 13th they felt it necessary to change the meaning of a commonly accepted term that was being highlighted in the ongoing hearings. I can't think of something worse that the people responsible for providing definitions could do tbh, what gives them the right? They are boldly and blatantly attempting to redefine language for political reasons right in front of your face, and they get away with it because we're all on autopilot and the media is evil.

Its really crazy if you just lay out the timeline.

This phrase is redefined as "offensive" at the precise moment when it became useful for the phrase to be defined that way.

No reason why it couldn't even change back at some point.

Thats pretty wild when you think about it.

Maybe better to describe it as sinister.

They tried to "officially" redefine the phrase AFTER she had said it for the specific reason of condemning her for using the phrase that was not defined as offensive when she said it.

Thats like an insane form of gaslighting or something, right? Where instead of just dimming the lights and insisting they are they same the "gaslighter" is actively trying to officially redefine the concept of "light" or "dim".

Imagine as a public figure having to wonder all the time if a commonly used phrase might be redefined as you utter it for the sole purpose of smearing you.

'Get the West Wing ready': Moment ecstatic Kanye thinks he's ahead of Trump AND Biden in Kentucky... only to realize it's a test poll!
  • The rapper and presidential candidate celebrated election results done as a test
  • Test results appeared to show West was ahead of Trump and Biden in Kentucky
  • Local media said that the results were invalid and part of a pre-election test
Kanye West celebrated invalid election results from Kentucky which appeared to show him ahead of both incumbent President Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Joe Biden.

In a video posted on Twitter, the rapper, who is running for president as a third-party candidate, chanted 'Get the West Wing ready' while showing another man the false results.

In the astonishing poll results, Kanye ranked third with 19 per cent of the vote and 40,781 votes, ahead of both Joe Biden, on 14 per cent and Donald Trump on just 2 per cent.

West enthusiastically reads out his figures to the man holding the camera as he walks around what appears to be a driveway.

The men shout 'Let's go' and 'Get the West Wing ready'.

After sharing the false results, West tweeted: 'PEOLE TRIED TO TALK ME OUT OF RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT...NEVET LET WEAK CONTROLLING PEOPLE KILL YOUR SPIRIT' [sic].

But it was short lived as West's tweet has been flagged as 'Manipulated Media' by Twitter, which has added a link to the explanation of the figures provided by a local news site.

And not only did the the poll place Libertarian candidate Jo Jorgensen and former child actor Brock Pierce in the top two positions Kentucky does not count early votes until election day on November 3.
Lex 18 news said a cached link on their website showed test election results, which is what West had seen and shared.

The site said the link had been used to post data from the Associated Press news agency during June's primaries and that the data had updated to show current AP figures used as part of a test run in preparation for the elections.

'The results shown were not valid. They were simply part of a test.
'We regret the discovery of the cached web link and have removed the data from that page. We apologize for any confusion,' Lex 18 said in a tweet on Wednesday.

Pub in locked-down Liverpool is renamed 'The Three Bellends' with sign featuring faces of Boris Johnson, Dominic Cummings and Matt Hancock
  • The James Atherton in New Brighton, the Wirral, was renamed overnight
  • Daniel Davies, owner of the bar, changed the name in response to the lockdown
  • Pubs across the area have been forced to close after Covid-19 cases increased
  • Locals have welcomed the change of name despite its industrial language

What is it with the far left's total lack of self awareness in their identifying with literal evil monsters? It's like all those articles after IT 2 with people upset that their 'LGBT+ ally' Pennywise killed a gay dude.

I was in the supermarket the other day, and Disney now have an entire range of 'Twisted Tales' books for kids that are all basically pro evil:



Post modernist moral decay man.

A long haul flight from wherever you are.
When you go woke to boost your subscriber count. It's a good channel about old retro gaming hardware but obviously "Retro man Cave" was holding it back from being a true success. Probably a complete coinicence that it's covid year and his main income must be down.
