It has not escaped my notice that the recent popularity of the zombie genre coincides with anxiety about poor brown people immigrating to rich white countries, great replacement rhetoric and the like.

I suspect refining and alloying quality metals for machinery, pipes, etc. will be quite a stumbling block. There are reasons industrial tech took a while to be bootstrapped into existence.

A tweet Kam linked in another thread led me to this:

An Open Letter to Spotify: A call from the global scientific and medical communities to implement a misinformation policy

This is good. My 25 yr old nephew is a big fan of the JRE which led to us arguing a week or two ago about the efficacy of vaccines and the trustworthiness of anyone who doesn't appear on the JRE (spoiler alert: if they don't come on the JRE they can't be trusted) and it was very depressing. At least my nephew has the good sense to be vaccinated regardless.

I know a guy who refused to vote for Biden unless he would go on Joe Rogan. At least we managed to talk him into a third party, but holy shit.

He said Joe Rogan was the smartest guy he knew of, so I think the argument was that people who wouldn't appear on his show were just afraid of his blistering intellect or something.



I keep getting off topic in this thread.

Just remember that didn't come out of nowhere. He may suppress it better most of the time, but that's who he is.

Immediately when he start’s talking I get flashes of random drunk dudes at parties who have done a bit too much coke and are now hyper free forming more and more elaborately wild stories, almost stumbling over their previous words as if they can’t get them out quick enough, a god among puny men here to educate and enlighten!

And of course he is indeed on drugs, as in Testosterone Replacement Therapy based on a self diagnosed need for more testosterone, seemingly out of fear and/or loathing out of not being ‘manly’ enough to compete in pro MMA.

ES and I got boosted today. We would have done it sooner but when I looked before Christmas there were no available appointments before early January and when we tried a walk up it was too much of a clusterfuck.

It was cool, we had a 9 am appointment, it wasn’t bad when we got there, but by the time we left (shortly before 930 I think) it was becoming pretty busy.

I love MMA, I know it’s pretty barbaric, but it’s a fun sport. I would argue that there are moments of sportsmanship that really demonstrates it is a sport and not just human cockfighting, but I get why other people may feel differently. Anyway, I watch a lot of UFC, Rohan has been working with the UFC for 20 years. He also did jujitsu for years, so he is fairly knowledgeable. He used to be a good announcer, but now he is garbage.

He will pick a narrative and stick to it for the fight regardless of how the fight is going. Or he will pick a moment in the fight and decides that the fighter must have injured something and just keep harping on that. It’s also obvious that he doesn’t research the newer fighters very well.

I used to enjoy his commentating, but it’s garbage tier now. (And many mma fans on say r/mma dislike his commentary (even if they like his intellectual dark web/alt right adjacent politics).

He has always been something of a contrarian and prone to flights of speculation in lieu of facts, but I think years of being a rich asshole independent contractor (and with JRE self employed) have exacerbated the situation.

He just pretty clearly doesn’t get much real push back when he says dumbshit in his real life, and then he views such responses online as cancel culture.

The bill comes after Marshall aggressively pressed Fauci about his financials during a Senate hearing on Tuesday. “Yes or no, would you be willing to submit to Congress and the public a financial disclosure that includes your past and current investments?” Marshall asked.

Fauci was perplexed, as his financial disclosures are, in fact, public. “I don’t understand why you’re asking me that question,” Fauci replied. “My financial disclosure is public knowledge and has been so for the last 37 years or so.”


Marshall then falsely claimed that the “big tech giants” are somehow to blame for the alleged mystery of Fauci’s records, which Marshall says his office couldn’t find. “All you have to do is ask for it,” an exasperated Fauci shot back. “You’re so misinformed, it’s extraordinary.”

Then a hot mic caught Fauci calling the senator a moron.

We are at the point that the vaccinated are sick and dying beyond those unvaccinated, yet those that eat the dick of the elite class claim this is the normal course of how vaccines work.

Why do liberals like multi-naional corporations, in concert with government, like making the rich riches???
