I wanna go home…

Sometimes I wish I could be a mod on this site and never be out of love. :stuck_out_tongue:

Seriously, guess I’m more of mediator than a “I will shut your post down!” sort of person usually. :thinking:

Hey, anyone else see those Nintendo leaks from a couple days ago?


#552

Nope but that hella cute.


#553

I imagine MVG has those covered already.


#554

I don’t know how old this is, how can/could people vote for someone like this?


#555

I have some dear friends and a few distance family members in the US. I am sad, that this man may once again affect all their lives.

As much good people as there may be, to vote in, again, would just prove that the world is full of very dim-witted or perhaps just suggestible, humans.


#557

#558

Good point. Is faking stuff easy though? :thinking:


#559

That old Trump campaign video is why I don’t trust mainstream media, nor Silicon Valley social media, except as a source of entertainment, and oftentimes, not a good source of it.

Yes, current events included. COVID-19 is a dog and pony show. Of course, the planned economy killer is very real, and no one is denying it because they don’t have to at this point.

Yup; until I see reliable info from non-corporate, non-government sources, I have no reason at all to believe that there’s a pandemic that’s killing people like how it’s being described. You can keep your ‘tinfoil hat’ nonsense comments to yourself, thanks; I don’t just take the words spoken by news outlets and by government sources (both have proven to be liars countless times), I do my research and my due diligence, and of course, if I am sick, I don’t go anywhere except (maybe) to dreamland/sleep. If I have to go places whilst I am sick, I do take the best preventative measures I possibly can, which includes a face covering that isn’t plastic.

Yeah, being sick is no fun. Glad to only have to deal with such every now and then. I’d rather deal with that than a heatwave though. High heat, plus high humidity and high dew points equals misery for everyone. Blech. Barf.


#568

But dame da ne though

I think I agree to a certain degree. If I were to get legit news usually, I get it from my own national news sites or those that are less likely to be inaccurate (again, as you said they have been caught lying before) like Reuters or AP. The others I usually take a grain of salt, especially if it spread to social media I would take some extra precaution usually.
There are websites like allsides or the flip side compiling news sources, but unfortunately they are limited to events that are in the US or directly affect them, so I don’t think I would go there as regularly as I liked.
As for government sources, it’s a sometimes sometimes thing. Like yeah sometimes they are a resource for proper or at least better information but other times they are used to spread crap down your throat.
I don’t personally agree with your viewpoint about the pandemic, even if there is some thing i agree with like the government part.

Since the nonessential personnel quarantine order became active in Ohio, and even now after it has been lifted, this song has had a ridonkulous amount of airtime on local mainstream and alternative radio stations. Sadly that song has now been inextricably bound to the phrase “I’m so bored”–or variations there of, thus creating a damn near Pavlovian response to think of and/or sing this F–ing song when I hear or read said phrase. :exploding_head: :boom: :point_left:
