The Magic Pudding..

Quote from: Asmodean on August 30, 2023, 12:42:55 PMAh, but is it still there if no-one sees it? Einstein thought it might be - other models of reality are available.

Does, too!  :o

The Pudding hath stared into the abyss, and the abyss staredeth back and its name was Marcus.


 :grin:

Hey, there is no comparison tween me and Marcus.
I made myself a big genius badge out of dried pasta and stuff from the recycling bin today.  I'm a practical person. >:(


You're both Australian aren't you? That's good enough for stereotyping! :)

Nope. The Asmo rejects the reality in which a nasty, malformed Moon exists unless He's looking at it. :snooty:

In seriousness though, should better business sense prevail and unless the shitshow gets fixed in season two, then I doubt there will be a season 3. Perhaps it's beyond saving even if season 2 is fixed... Rings of power certainly is, so there is that...

For the time being though, it's shit, which is disappointing, but hardly surprising, and while I would have loved a good - or even a good enough - adaptation, it's no skin off my teeth whatsoever to just not watch it.

How about giving him his own area of the forum and he can only post there?

Troll dump?  ;D

On a more risible note, he's just been banned from AtheistForums.org. I don't know if it is a timeout or permanent, as I haven't seen a post by the administration about it yet.

Is that what you took from it? Fair enough, I suppose.

Quoteim willing to get along with people, but the ones who take pride in being objectionable are not the ones im interested in accomodating
And the example you found was someone taking pride in who he is in spite of how problematic someone might find it, while in the next breath you, and I quote,

If only there was a word to describe that... Something about hippos or some such...  ;)

Linguistic flair aside, not accusing you of actively and wantonly being a hypocrite - not any more than is "human." However, it is worth pointing out that your pride flag is as much an interpretable statement as "I'm huwhite. How else may I be a problem?"

i believe you are wrong in your assessment,  asmo.

there is a difference between saying

i stand in support of this

and saying

fuck all of you who do not agree with me.

think about it.


Given that most people struggle with legible handwriting already, the added complexity of cursive is an unnecessary burden. It is more practical and efficient to stick to standard print writing.

if youre not getting hit by tbe rocks thrown at those you support

then youre not standing close enough

Can I use the second two lines of that to build a meme?


absolutely. i didnt coin tbe phrasing, but i am increasingly intolerant of intolerance.

Perhaps, but thus far, I'm afraid I must insist on it. Here's why;

I am not a huwhite Christian, nor am I a part of the alphabet community, nor a supporter of either. Therefore, my view is from the outside.

When I see someone saying, "White Christian. How else may I offend you?" I take from that that the individual in question is who he is and if you have a problem with that - well, fuck you then.

When I see a rainbow flag, I see someone saying "I'm gay. You got a problem with that? Well, fuck you then."

Both are perfectly fine.

Of course, you don't have to be anywhere near as charitable to the white Christian gentleman, but then, why would you be any more charitable to the pride flag? The answer, obviously enough, is that you would be because it is your banner, while the other is an "enemy" one.

So, if I were to go with your interpretation of the message the white Christian tried to send, may I also assume that you flying that particular flag means that you are OK with prepubescent children twerking for money or consider MAP a valid sexual orientation?

Note that I am being slightly hyperbolic since there are particular varieations of the pride flag to include or exclude certain stripes and symbols. Whatever yours may be, however, I could, with receipts, read a lot of unpalatable politics into it.

So,

There is, but is that indeed what's being said? Is that what's being heard? Could it perhaps easily appear in the exact opposite order to the right set of ears?
