Should the "funny" vote be called the "fun" vote? by magnora7 in AskSaidIt

[–]Mnemonic 4 insightful - 4 funny4 insightful - 3 funny5 insightful - 4 funny -  (0 children)

I'm for fun change! It's less degrading sounding as funny.

Entertaining is a bit hard to convey in the current emoji and may overlap too much with insightful.

We can even explain it to the Germans: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZFwMwQdvQM

Jordan Peterson Announces Debate with Slavoj Zizek by Mnemonic in Philosophy

[–]Mnemonic[S] 2 insightful - 2 funny2 insightful - 1 funny3 insightful - 2 funny -  (0 children)

Slavoj would wreck JP on his charlatanism considering words like postmodern, marxism, capitalism and wisdom alone. But I kinda hope JP doesn't get too clamped down on his 'below-highschool level'-knowlegde about history, economics and philosophy and doesn't get anal about words like he did on his first Sam Harris podcast. I would like them to go after sniff As Peterson likes to cough, snifff call it, capitol T, truth.

Talking about Slavoj's mugshot (In all honesty he just looks like a normal person): Does Peterson have 'tv-makeup' on in this vid?

The Western World! F* Yeah! We're going to eat untill we Motherf*ing implode like a theoretic blackhole!

We have AA and AA-like support groups across the Western World, we need that for these kind of people. Therapy (which is advised by the doctor from 'my 600lb life' -series) is as crucial for these people as it is for alocholic or other drug addicts.

M: Just 7%

M: LOL, yeah it sounds like a lot, could probably feed a continent with it. Ah well.... Look at it from the brightside! next year we will have asshole recognition! So your phone has a 50/50 change of detecting it has fallen into the toilet!

T: Why 50/50? It has front- and back-facing cameras!

M: Because if it identifies an asshole, it could be seeing a user's face.

As far as the month of Jesus' birth, it can be inferred to be summer or fall. Combining inferences from when shepherds would likely be in the fields and working backward from Zechariah's priestly service (John the Baptist's father) and its connections to Jesus' birth, one arrives at a likely date of mid-September to early October. This would suggest the conception of Jesus might have been in December, but not his birth

Is this not stuff people get in school? Wasn't America once opposed to Christmas for it being a heathen-fest at one point? It must be a shock to find out there are no pine-trees in the sandbox The Christ roamed :p

It works like: @[email protected]

So @[MyreallyOriginalHandle, Really, like, really, original]@social search for that and you'll find.

Now, I recommend reading at least this: https://hackernoon.com/what-i-wish-i-knew-before-joining-mastodon-7a17e7f12a2b

I don't recall if it explains why giving you a link might be a bigger pain in your [rear end] to figure out how to add me because well... Things work different in the fediverse compared to ONE SERVICE TO RULE THEM ALL and Mastodon is pretty keen in some ways to help with privacy. [Pictures and Video's don't last as you might expect them to].

Shilling is too specific, it's 'marketing' something (like the coolest sub around: /s/Internet).

Dumping toxicity deliberately to give someone/thing a bad reputation is a broader phenomenon than just 'shill' stuff.

I quit twitter because it was fun in the beginning, tweeting from your (now) antique smartphone that you are going to take a shit and various thoughts popping up during lectures, but around 2014-2015 it was an ad infested and mostly dominated by 'influencers' that the fun wasn't there.

I quit facebook/instagram so I could have conversations with people instead of being asked for my facebook, giving it and being scrutinized for my musical tastes and excluded from party invite lists because 'it wouldn't suit me'. (Like PKD said: In 1945 Germany was defeated but the Nazi's won)

This all happened 2014-2015. In the Summer of 2018 I heard about saidit and joined after a day or two clicking around and thinking up a sick handle. I guess about a week, or max a month, later I discovered Mastodon so since then I'm back into (real) social-media without too much personal details.

The best way to 'go around' this is filtering your subscription list at https://saidit.net/subs and when you see it happen in broader category subs and You have the time, refute it.

Keeping the https://saidit.net/static/debatepyramid.jpg in mind, if you can't get further than a contradiction it's probably 'wasted time' anyway in these cases.

Keep it up!

If you do that, you'll end up somewhere outside our solar system, It just makes sure you end up in the same space-time coordinates only a different 'time'. The earth moves, our solar system moves and the milky way moves.

And how fast is the Milky Way Galaxy moving? The speed turns out to be an astounding 1.3 million miles per hour (2.1 million km/hr)!

There is also a scene where the president is driven to the place JFK was shot and blackmailed into doing stuff because else he would go down pretty easy... (But can't find that one on youtube)
