Actually that is a point, why was it restricted to 200? I would've thought it would be hard coded to <99 or ends at quadruple digits (999)
Likely to limit nonsense answers. They didn't want a joker putting a ridiculously high number in, so put a limit that allowed for high numbers but wouldn't stop honest responses. They just didn't count on this guy.

Hundreds of people in Scotland are being recorded on police databases every year for committing “non-crimes” such as telling offensive jokes. In the past five years Police Scotland has logged more than 3,300 “hate incidents” that involve no criminality. Jokes and other acts perceived to be motivated by hostility towards race, religion or a person being transgender are filed “irrespective of whether there is any evidence to identify the hate element”, according to official guidelines.

Couldn't say for sure but I was there a good while - I particularly resented the comparison between Brexit (which I voted for) and Trump. I was there making the orange man bad small hands etc jokes, but then I just started to get tired of it, roughly the same time I started finding the SJW overload on RockPaperShotgun too much. I still wasn't fully cured when I arrived here, my early post history will attest to that, but talking to conservatives and finding they weren't demons, sitting back and questioning stuff, it ended up with my politics reshaping and judging on record rather than screeching. It's been a journey.
I think a lot of people have woken up to the realities of an unchecked leftist agenda over the last 5 years. Don't hold any animosity towards your prior self - we all want the best for the world, and those were the promises the left offers with its idealism and rejection of human nature.

Is this the real life version of the "multiple previous infractions" ban justifications on a certain other site?

So you are up on a charge for some other real crime and they bring this shit into the mix to make it easier to get a prosecution.

Yes we have no proof that the defendant was in the area at the time the murder was committed buuuut he has 100 instances on the "non crime" database for making jokes about murder.

Seems like a database like this could only really exist to either make getting convictions easier or to add a possible "hate crime" modifier to criminal charges. Like maybe some dude gets in a fight with a Chinese man on a Saturday night but also has been making jokes online about coronavirus so maybe we can get those hate crime stats up here?

It all seems pretty sinister.

How overseas stag parties are hurting the environment
About half of the flights taken last year by 20-45 year-old men were for stag dos, and that generates a lot of emissions, BBC research shows. So what can be done? "
Marvellous. This furthers a couple of narratives:

Flying is bad.
Men are toxic.
Male-focused events are bad.
Marriage is questionable
Family is old fashioned

Seemingly no interest whatsover in taking a gender-neutral motive behind the piece at all.
Ssh. No space for critical thinking. Listen and believe. Stay in your lane.

I got an ad before the video played.
"Fly non stop smoothly to Thailand".
Literally this video was preceded by a tourism advert for Thai Airways.
Let that sink in.

Amazing.

Love how it starts with a really specific statistic. 50% of flights taken by men aged 25 to 40 are for stag dos.
I'd even question this statistic to be honest but in any case it provides absolutely no context.

How many flights leave the UK each year. How many of those passengers are 25 to 40 year old dudes?
Seriously we are to believe that 50% of those journeys are for stag parties? No chance.

Also, it's just people going on vacations. I don't understand why there is a distinction between going on holiday just because and going on holiday for a stag party. It's a vacation, so what?

Why not say the number of people going on vacations is X% and if we all just vacationed close to home we could help combat climate change? I mean why not just cancel all air travel?

Seems like the point is to paint these folks as selfish assholes who just want to have fun instead of caring for the environment. Look at these white males and their damn holidays killing the world!

It's so strange because it's not like "25 to 40 year old male" is the only demographic going on holidays that involve air travel.
It's not like "going to Spain for Dave's stag do" is somehow a less valid reason to fly than "going to Portugal for 2 weeks with the wife and kids".

Surely when you go to the airport to get a flight for any reason then EVERY person there is accountable for "hurting the environment" to some extent?

Bonus Idiocy! About half of the video is dedicated to hen parties. :)

"Relax. Recharge. Rejoice. Enjoy amazing Thailand like never before. Fly non-stop smoothly to Thailand."
"STAG PARTIES ARE HURTING THE ENVIRONMENT!"

"We just want equality... ...and your mandatory participation of our identity politics and demand for validation."

Tell you what:

When announcing blood-type is a mandatory thing (and is arguably for more reasonable and practical) - then we can return to your attempts to trample over the rights of everyone else because of your precious urge to thrust your identity down everyone's throats and have tantrums if they don't 'respect' you for it.

Deal?

As someone already noted in the comments, it's hilarious that "meeting Allah" only got to number 7 on the list. Poor Allah...

None of these terrorist acts have anything to do with Islam at all, obviously...

Changed now, but this was real

I'm so ashamed that I once subscribed to both The Washington Post and The New York Times.

Anyway, just saw this in my Facebook feed:


The fight, which broke out while the presidential candidate was speaking at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver and was captured on video, happened after a Sanders supporter confronted another man wearing a T-shirt that said “Black Guns Matter.”

The man wearing the shirt, who is black, told KCNC he was recording the Sanders rally when the other man came up to him and called him a “racist.”

So some nutjob went and shot up shisha bars in Germany killing 9 people and injuring others and off course the media are immediately labeling it a white supremacist, neo nazi, right wing terror attack. This from the same media that every time there's an islamic terror attack says: "it's not related to islam, just a person with mental illness, nothing to see here". And this guy really sounds mentally ill. He believes in aliens, mind control and secret bases in the US where kids are sacrificed to satan.

Mikaela Spielberg, 23, the daughter of legendary filmmaker Steven Spielberg, 73, and his actress wife, Kate Capshaw, 66
Still, the fledgling adult entertainer vows she won’t have sex on camera with anyone else, out of respect for her fiancé, Chuck Pankow, 47.
47?

She claims her parents are “intrigued” by her new career path
“I actually think that once they see how far I’ve come from the bottom I was at a year and a half ago, they’re going to look at this and go, ‘Wow, we actually raised a really self-assured young lady,’ ” she tells the Sun.
Imagine being such a rich fuck up that telling your famous dad that you're going into porn is a huge step up.

Mikaela tells the outlet that she no longer wanted to be dependent on her parents — or the state, for that matter.
Yup. No dependency here. You just show your ass and journos boost your signal worldwide...

Why would comically large ears and giant red lips (which are cleraly lipstick painted lips) and "bushy eyebrows" automatically remind someone of a black person?
I think one would have to actually believe that perception to be true on some level to think It would be offensive.

Well, obviously it didn't work. He's still fat.


Transgender transhumanist programmer/socialist/anarchist Tokyoite with over 100 self administered body mods
The most shocking thing in all that is that he has kids. But in all seriousness I'm starting not to find these degenerates funny anymore because sadly through social media they have managed to gain a voice and legitimacy they should never be allowed to have. And by "these degenerates", I don't mean trans people, I mean SJW soyboy weirdos who desperately wanna be trans because it's only thing they can do to not be complete piece of shit losers, they want a victim card they can use to make excuses for themselves.

Yeah, I agree. These sort of outrages reveal a lot about what's in the minds of those shouting “That's racist”.

I wonder how well accepted they are in Japan (where that "person" is supposedly living)
Japan doesn't seem to me to be accepting in a work environment of some dude with a 5 o'clock shadow in full drag parading around demanding people address them as xir. Maybe my opinion of Japan is wrong and this strange behaviour is common there?

No your opinion is spot on but the point is these degenerates can be anywhere in the world but thanks to social media they can find each other and amplify their bullshit to the point when companies listen to them. Before social media, they were isolated from each other and kept to themselves because they were surrounded by normal people but now they can surround themselves with degenerates like them no matter where they are.
