Re: The Problem With Apu

Yeah, we're headed into a vastly rich period of retrospective guilt that is going to affect everyone.
Culture moves towards rigidity, inflexibility and uniformity. It's a change of sorts, I guess.

Hmmm...watched a few more videos featuring Shkreli and he's quite unorthodox in many ways. Interesting specimen.

Martin Shkreli

Well, here's a turnup for the books - and there I was, thinking that Shkreli was the most evil, depraved individual in America (the message being pimped by the MSM, of course) - yet, it turns out he's highly erudite, socially motivated and totally misrepresented by the media that obviously finds him...

Re: That "other" forum ....

everyone slows down to look at a car wreck. I don't. Can't bear it - in case I saw something that I couldn't get out of my mind. I heard a little girls screams after she'd been run over by a lorry when I was kid and I never, ever want to hear anything like that - or see anything that may be related...

Re: Thought of the Day

It's becoming increasingly clear that marijuana has been suppressed from inclusion in the treatment of many, many ailments. I believe this powerful and highly underated drug - and when I say underated, I mean is consistantly vilified by the voices of the system - has been suppressed by a pharmaceuti...

Re: Thought of the Day

I visit somewhere very different. It is different every time and never a bore. Here we go. The vista opens up both cloying and vast. The air is pure and clean and fresh, slipping noiselessly into chest and on into blood, filling my head with clear thought as the minds eye opens into another vista wi...

Re: Is it safe to speak?

^ There's no reasoning with this 'superior' mind-set. They are shut off from any criticism or non-compliance - and even find discussion about these matters distasteful. There is no discussion - it's just do as we say . They are persistant, I'll give them that. I've become increasingly convinced that...

No oversight at RI any more. Not that it needs it - there are no dissenting voices to rail against the message being pumped there 24/7 by AD and slad (now there's an interesting case - I had never witnessed an actual psycoschism take place before my very eyes before - it happened the day Trump was e...

trans-humanism
We should maybe have a thread about this. I personally think trans-humanism is about as likely as the notion in the 50's that everyone would be served by robots and flying in Jetson cars by the year 2000. i.e. load of cobblers.

The dinosaur said I should come back as "one of them or not at all" but who the hell knows what that means
You're deemed 'one of them' at RI. Just not exceptional enough, I guess. The segregationalism at RI is excrutiating. Jeff Wells must be wincing.

Re: Whiter than white

The oppression hierarchies are shifting noticeably nowadays. Yes, the search for greater victimhood continues. But how far will 'the left' go? I think calling them 'the left' is a bit of a misnomer, really. I used to be 'left of centre' but the terms of membership have changed and now I'm classifie...
