I remember you had to surf the web from a dos prompt, gopher or something can't quite remember. You could find some reliable information then and not all the BS that's out there now.

4 Times the U.S. Threatened to Stage an Attack and Blame it on Iran: The U.S. has threatened to stage an attack and blame it on Iran over and over in the last few years. Don't let a war based on false pretenses happen again. Please share this video. by Orangutan in politics

In the US people don't want a war with Iran, Politicians seem to be intent on it. We'll see what happens. From what I understand it's a no win situation so why would you even try it ?

Teen girls stage school walkout to protest boys in their bathroom who claim to be ‘girls’ by useless_aether in Education

Hell yeah ! I've been thinking about how I would have done that since they started saying anyone can use any bathroom they want. If I had to wear a wig all day at school to do it, no big deal.

Kids Aren’t Born Trans — People who pursue a cross-sex identity aren’t born that way, and children should not be encouraged to “transition” to the opposite sex, according to a reference work endorsed by the American Psychological Association by useless_aether in Psychology

[–]Tblaze7 5 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

I read where a scientist or psychiatrists did a study and confirmed that most trans people are that way from social pressure and social media. What happened you may ask ? They were confronted until they couldn't get grants, practice what they were doing and basically ran off the face of the earth. It just wasn't part of the narrative. Sad.

I don't understand trans-people because if you really felt like the opposite sex why wouldn't you do your darndest to become the opposite sex ? That's what transitioning used to mean. Now if you wear the opposite sex's clothing your considered trans gender.

Give me a break, Bruce Jenner feels like a woman so much that he won't get his penis chopped off and he still dates women, so wearing womens' clothes and makeup makes him transgender ? Seems like he was just doing it for publicity.

Don't get me wrong, I know crap about transgender people I'm just not around them. So, there could be something I'm not understanding.

Can't believe all the stuff on TORRENTFREAK lately. Copyright trolls have found a new revenue stream and they just keep pushing for more and more things to happen across the internet. It's sad.

I use Truecaller because the phone company I'm with took the original caller id that comes with android and wants you to pay $2.99 a month for theirs. So, I said no way and got something else.

Forgot they sent me this about all my digital copies of movies that came with blu-rays or 4K discs over the years.

It has been our pleasure to be a part of how you enjoy digital entertainment. As you may recall, we wrote to you in January to inform you that the UltraViolet service is planning to shut down on July 31, 2019.

Oh, I got into some other things. I've mostly had technical jobs clear back to why am I paying you when you just sit on your butt days. The last one was real technical and I had to explain stuff to non technical people a lot of the time, I just got burned out on technology and said the heck with it for awhile.

I know but I haven't had experience with Linux since probably the 90's when they were touting it. If I remember I think it was Redhat. It wasn't the best back then and I'm sure it's better now but I pretty much know Microsoft OS inside and out.

Yep, next they'll quit letting our military have guns and send them into battle with a knife because it'll be what's politically correct. I saw a news show once and they were arguing the NRA was evil and something needs to be done about it and their members, the commentator said " Can you name one NRA member that's committed a mass shooting ?" They didn't have much to say after that.

It's just about money, I've been in bands and they don't get hardly any of the money. Look what the record companies did to the bands in the 60's 70's and part of the 80's they basically took all the money the band made. My friend just put songs on iTunes, I think he gets an 1/8 of a cent for everyone purchased. The movie companies are trying to get everyone used to the digital copies so they can maintain control of everything, you don't own anything you get from digital download it's guaranteed only for 5 years. I suspect it's going to go far more downhill in the future. Software companies are pushing the subscription to the software crap. Where are all of the people that almost put Microsoft out of business the first time they tried that ? Does anyone recall that ?

These companies anymore are just out for themselves and nothing else and that's what the politicians are doing on both sides.

Maybe I'm just getting old and don't want to change but I can see where all this is headed in the future.

Welcome, I'm new here too but I've noticed it's more open minded than reddit. I can post what I think and not get down voted by a 1000+ people. Hopefully it stays that way.

One more thing I would like to say. Quit blaming everything negative in your life on other races or people. Focus on yourself, recognize your short comings and work to improve them. Focus on your strengths and use them to your advantage. You will live a far better life.

White supremecy is a figment of your imagination pushed by the news organizations. I'm 50 years old have not met a white supremist in my lifetime. It's a big to do about nothing. Either your falling for all the news crap or you have ulterior motives trying to justify your cause.

Sharing Links? by TRaec in piracy

[–]Tblaze7 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Yeah I'd like to get links too because I would extensively search for things before I asked or couldn't find what I wanted it would be nice for someone to be able to give me a link. I think a lot of people are too lazy to do that they just want a link immediately and not really willing to learn things. If reddit goes down I'll still be able to get stuff from multiple sources I never rely on one place for all my information. If you read the posts on reddit you could find out where certain things moved to but there was no link or anything just a name and you had to figure it out. I don't see where it was breaking any copyright rules it's just a target because of it's name and popularity if it was alt.kittens or something it wouldn't be so obvious at least.
