Hillary Clinton is a cannibal (kuru)? - NSFW and NSFL! by useless_aether in conspiracy

Kuru was a disease* entirely limited to the Fore people of Papau New Guinea. Last person with it, and thus the disease itself, died in 2005.

*It was a prion disorder, at some point a member of the Fore tribe spontaneously developed it when a protein misfolded, causing other proteins of the same type around it to also spontaneously misfold, and ingestion of the tissue (esp. brain tissue) of the infected person would've spread it by the uptake of the misfolded proteins.

/u/magnora7 (can we link like that here?) Just a question -- you are the creator of this site, yes? Are there any other admins? I am just curious. Thank you!

YouTube is now putting a banner underneath videos (above the title of the video) to make sure we all know that these things are "conspiracy theories" by EndlessSunflowers in conspiracy

I understand why they're doing this; generally it's the "CONSPIRACY THEORISTS!!1" with mental issues who buy completely fictional accounts presented as truth, and that little notice could save them a lot of bother.

They shouldn't be putting it on any of the remotely plausible ones, even if they're completely wrong. Then again, they're already massively abusing their monopoly with the tracking etc., so this isn't actually the worst thing they've done.

The way to solve this is to not put content onto YouTube, and (to a lesser, but not insignificant extent) not to watch content on YouTube.

You didn't answer the second question.

Are you running saidit through a corporation or some other kind of business entity? If not, you are taking a massive personal risk with some of the content you're attracting to this site. You can be held personally liable.

I know, thanks; the funny alphanumeric string I posted was a commit ID and I've contributed code to the site. Plus there's a link at the bottom of every page.

If I didn't know, I'd be extremely pleased to find out. So, thanks!

The police called it an unlawful assembly and then funneled the WNs into the antifa crowd, causing chaos. Fields was looking to escape the commotion, ran into antifa blocking the road, had his car attacked and then panicked.

I doubt they hired Israeli college students, that was probably the Israeli military doing that. The JIDF's effectiveness was probably much more limited than what 4chan always claimed. For example, I've been called a JIDF shill. Everyone who disagrees with pol is a JIDF shill.

First of all, though, we need a working definition of "extreme." Extreme is in regards to something considered commonplace or moderate.

In the commonly accepted definition of political extremism it means radically different from the norms. But historically, again, liberal democracy is an extremist form of government. Nobody in their right mind before 400 years ago would have thought that universal suffrage was ideal or desirable.

This is to prevent people from using the downvote like a weapon, a military tactical nuke that triggered people use when they see something they don't agree with. Reddit tried to get around it by encouraging to 'only downvote posts that don't add meaningful discussion' but obviously that wasn't ever gonna work due to human nature.

Police say they shot two dogs who ‘charged’ at an officer. Then the homeowner posted her video. by dcjogger in news

[–]Starlight_Fire 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

What a painful thing to watch. That dog is incredibly non threatening...it's wagging it's tail. :(

It's so hard for me to watch these because I know my dog would run & bite, so an officer would definitely shoot my girl...

Personally, I am really into miniatures. Not like Warhammer 40k, more like little dollhouses, clay foods, etc. It's a very useless hobby, and that's what I like about it. It's purely an enjoyment thing for me -- would never want to make money with it. Just wish I had more time to dedicate to it!

Reaktionär Doe: Folge 42- Idiokratie by digitalfrost in deutsch

Weil wir nur 2.9 Prozent des Drecks produzieren, können wir weitermachen wie bisher. So zumindest Argument Nr. 1 von Reaktionär Doe. Also wenn alle in den Fahrstuhl scheissen, scheissen wir doch einfach mit! Wenn alle Russisch Roulette spielen, wer meint dann nicht damit aufhören zu müssen? Genau, die Nulpe Reaktionär Doe.

Solchen Schwachsinn hör ich täglich. Was? Du verweigerst GEZ? Das bringt doch nichts wenn jeder zahlt. Was? Du trennst den Müll? Das bringt doch nichts wenn alle drauf scheissen. Usw. usf. . Nutzlose Spasten, allesamt.

Der Redestil von dem Typen ist übrigens fast so unerträglich wie der der vulgären Analyse. Beide könnten problemlos einem Bösewicht in einem Computerspiel ihre Stimme leihen.
