I do wonder what’s going to happen when Rush retires. I wonder if he’s given it thought. There is a method to his madness and he serves an important purpose. I wonder if he thought of grooming future pundits with a similar style.

Well we saw how Art's grooming went so..uh... :-\

Greg Gutfeld had a great sarcastic style when they use to do Red Eye. That show was really funny. Now he’s been somewhat Hannitized along with the entire network.

He would be outstanding! In fact the fact that he is so different in style from Rush could make that work in ways that the Heather/Art thing was never going to.

You and your friends seem to like that kinda thing though.

If true I'd be back on ellgab, not here.

You can all remind each other of what’s verboten there. I know it’s easy to lose track with you guys because there’s so much you want to suppress.  :D

I’m for free speech. If you want a curated safespace go back to Ellgab, faggot and stop trying to make this place it.  ::)

I’m going to endeavour to use it more now, maybe even in every post.  :D

He’s actully pretty funny sometimes;

How many pages back in his poasts do I go to recapture that?

Quote
and you still haven’t explained why you seem to be with these safespacers. What gives? ???

I'm not, I'm here in non-safe space. But that is no reason to simply flame them off with endless "the Jews" and Nazi memes. Frankly if you get this whole place on little more than potty mouth it'll likely implode under a veneer of its own spittle as there will be few if any targets to acquire after Heather shuts her act down.

I believe Ellgab is still open to people who find real discussions too threatening. ;)
A Bart ban is always in the background like the fucking sword of Damocles.

Why are you backing morons like Az and Tootsie?! As for Jackstar I got the distinct impression that you’re not a fan. Explain your long con. ???

Oh I really do enjoy Tootsie's art work, I know that sounds trite but it is what it is. With Azz you simply don't seem able to divine his dry sense of humor. And there is depth to him that you'd find appealing if you dropped the "faggot" act. Good grief Doc, that one's as long in the tooth as Senda's extraction and twice as useless here. Save that juvenile slap for the leftarded meme children that are apparently ellgab orphaned here mon!

As to Jackstar - without his keen eye much of the context in BG would be missing. I do think he oft times runs with a few too many 8chan memes to retain a coherent narrative, but at the same time I have suspected that his long game is determining who here has or doesn't have the capacity to filter noise and yet unearth the subtext of current events.

The ego drops of "I can allow this" and bragging on his "huge schlong" I find less than engaging, but we all have our shtick to run and I honestly think this place would be of lesser value sans his contributions. He's just a very dogmatic guy on certain things, like the whole hemp/MJ based economy he's somehow ginned up as a plausible outcome.

I know I've tweaked him a bit on that, but frankly if such an economy were actually doable the libertarian in me says go for it! :)

"By Jason Lemon On Monday, September 17, 2018 - 10:02

French President Emmanuel Macron listens to explanations given by an employee of the Mobilier National (National Furnishings) as the Élysée Palace opened its doors to the public on September 15 as part of France's Heritage Days. He told one unemployed person attending the event that he could find work if he simply “crossed the street” and searched for employment in a different sector.

French President Emmanuel Macron faced criticism once again, this time for telling a job seeker that he could find work if he simply “crossed the street” and searched for employment in a different sector.

The 40-year-old head of state had previously been dubbed the “president of the rich” and drew criticism for pushing forward policies that many believe hurt French workers. Now, a video of the president advising an unemployed citizen at a cultural event at the Élysée Palace on Saturday has garnered social media anger.

"I'm 25 years old, I send résumés and cover letters, they don't lead to anything," the unemployed man said in the video, France 24 reported.

Brushing aside the man’s complaint, Macron suggested he was merely searching in the wrong sector.

“If you are ready and motivated, in hotels, cafés and construction, everywhere I go people say to me that they are looking for staff,” the president responded, according to the BBC. He then told the man that he could find him a job “just by crossing the street.”

Many on social media were quick to criticize Macron, accusing him of once again appearing disconnected from the reality many French face in the country.

“Macron is simply not learning. Again coming across as aloof and cocky,” Mathieu von Rohr, a journalist for Der Spiegel, wrote on Twitter. “If he continues like this, this won't end well."

Geneticists theorize that we, as a species, were down to 400 unique individuals at one point...only 400 homo sapiens on the planet...due to climate change (not induced by humans). So, I can see where we all learned the habit from those 400 poor bastards...
Plausible, in fact likely!

Every human society, no matter how isolated...shakes their head up and down for affirmative, and side to side for negative...figure that one out!

So do you see this as proof of a collective unconscious which then presets a creation narrative of certain root or universal constants?

Or are the multiple, yet strangely similar, creation narratives evidence of global cataclysm that impacted all in more or less the same manner?

https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/the-scientific-fundamentalist/200805/there-is-only-one-human-culture

Pierre van den Berghe, a pioneer sociobiologist at the University of Washington, puts it best when he says

Certainly we are unique, but we are not unique in being unique. Every species is unique and evolved its uniqueness in adaptation to its environment. Culture is the uniquely human way of adapting, but culture too evolved biologically.

Despite all the surface differences, there is only one culture, because culture, like our body, is an adaptive product of human evolution. The human culture is a product of our genes, just like our hands and pancreas are.

Biologically, human beings are very weak and fragile; we do not have fangs to fight predators and catch prey or fur to protect us from extreme cold. Culture is the defense mechanism with which evolution equipped us to protect ourselves, so that we can inherit and then pass on our knowledge of manufacturing weapons (to fight predators and catch prey) or clothing and shelter (to protect us from extreme cold). We don’t need fangs or fur, because we have culture. And just like -- despite some minor individual differences -- all tigers have more or less the same fangs and all polar bears have more or less the same fur, all human societies have more or less the same culture. Fangs are a universal trait of all tigers; fur is a universal trait of all polar bears. So culture is a universal trait of all human societies. Yes, culture is a cultural universal.

Is it CERN you refer to?

A modern day equivalency perhaps ( God help us all) - but no I was referring to the actual Biblical Creation itself.

Get used to it. I’m starting to find pushing your buttons amusing.  It’s funny how you really really think you’re king of something, but it’s all just hot air.

What's not amusing is your inability to realize that you're wasting your ability to positively engage here with a unique, wry-humored, creative person whose insights you're barely capable of receiving.

Let me be blunt - you're not the sharpest knife in this drawer.

It seems to me that rioting and violence has always been the endgame: one side uses violence to demand more governmental control, and the other allows more government control for fear of violence.
A win/win situation for the political elite.
Socialist Democracy: 1, Constitutional Republic: 0.

They HAD to know that overuse of the words racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, and all others "ists" and "obias" would eventually numb the public to the accusations- and create dissention.

At this point, the factions would have been balkanized enough that they would generate the hate themselves, with no further catalyst required.

Another example of balkanization would be language. Why should a person learn hundreds of languages when those hundreds could learn just one? One set language is a primary reason America became the powerhouse that it is.

Transpose a map of the U.S. onto any other body of land and count the many languages and it becomes clear that speed of communication played a large part in our nation's development.

To reverse this? Well, The Tower of Babel proves the power in it:
And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
Let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.

There are many others factors but I see this one as a topic rarely discussed.

And a fine one it is!

As a bit of a tangent I find it fascinating how many native Americans cultures have an analog creation myth to the Christian Biblical narrative.

CHAPTER III

"HOW THE MOCKING BIRD GAVE THE PEOPLE MANY LANGUAGES
When all these were made the young men were asked to take them to the southwest, toward Patuwakachi (the ocean) and at a good distance away from the kiva these pahos were set with the wishes and prayers of the chief that the waters may only come as far as the spot where the offerings were placed. Now every day, for four days the young men were sent back to this place where they had put these pahos to see if there were any signs of moisture or the coming of Paso (the roaring waters). Now every day the water was seen to be creeping up on these pahos and at the end of the fourth day the people began to feel the damp air. Then the big wind came and it kept up for many days and at last Paso had come and it had covered up all the land around the kiva so that no one could reach it. This was, of course, a very fearful thing to all the people. 12

Of course, no one knows how long they lived around that place, but after a great many years they increased and they started to have more trouble among themselves. The chief was afraid that something might happen again so

p. 28

he had a council with his men once more, and he asked them what should be done. One of the men said that the only thing that he thought of was, if they only could speak different languages and learn to eat different kinds of food from one another, they might start away or become parted in many divisions.

"Why," said the chief, "how could we do this?"

Someone said, "Well, don't we have the mocking bird who knows many songs and why shouldn't he give us many different languages?"

"Well," said the chief, "I think that is a very good idea."

Then he asked the men to come the next day so that they could make their prayer offerings for the mocking bird. So the next day the men came over with their trays and some materials with which to make their prayer offerings. They started work that morning and kept on until late in the afternoon. When all their prayer offerings were finished, the crier called out for the men to bring him their presents of food for them all to eat. After they finished their meal they started singing the calling songs for the mocking bird, and at the end of four songs the mocking bird came.

When he came he asked them why he was being so anxiously called. The chief answered him and said, "It is because we are in trouble and we wish to have some changes made, if it would be possible." Then the mocking bird asked what kind of changes.

"Well," said the chief, "would it be possible that we, living here as one people, could be given different languages'?"

The mocking bird said, "It can be done."

Oh yeah the good old “public service”. Everytime I hear anyone in political establishment talk about public service I cringe. What a complete joke. Yeah your “service” made you one of the most powerful people in the world and zillionaire. Thanks for your service, now fuck off. And that’s goes for both parties.

Amen!

Let me let you guys in on a little secret.  You want to know why "nice" guys can't score with the chicks, while the bad boys do?  It's because "nice" guys are predictable.  There is nothing worse to a chick than routine and predictability in a relationship.

It would not be the first time I have seen technical issues which were neither party's fault, or at least beyond the scope of knowledge I would expect of them, used as cudgels.  The blame lies in the willingness to find it.

Heather at least made an effort (she claims) to purge bad cables and old machines that had issues. Vara runs a network and must be held to a higher standard.

That said, I recall some dead air on MITD when Heather took over for Art as well.
