UK returns cursed Babylonian stone treasure looted during Iraq War by Vigte in WorldNews

Funny how when 9/11 happened, they were in the middle of rebuilding the Palace of Nebuchadnezzar (whom Saddam likened himself to and even had coins printed comparing the two).

A cursory examination of Nebuchadnezzar's deeds may offer certain "conspiracy theories" some context.

Some of you may be familiar for example, with this piece which despite being iconic, was JUST sold at auction to a private buyer for 31.5 million dollars.

Another curiousity is the ICE vault with 2000 "repatriated" Sumerian and Assyrian artefacts that was beneath WTC. Mentioned ONCE, in ONE article - in almost 20 years. I can't even get people to listen to me long enough to explain.

Quote, from behind the "turn off adblocker AND pay us" walls:

In March 2001, the Customs Service was investigating a New York gallery suspected of dealing in illicit art and antiquities when agents got a tip that two boxes containing “clay objects” from Syria were being smuggled into the country from Dubai. When inspectors examined the shipment at Newark they found the cuneiform tablets, each one smaller than a deck of cards, and an expert verified that they had been looted from southern Iraq. That summer, the tablets were placed where all seized items were then stored — in a vault in the basement of the United States Customs House at 6 World Trade Center.

Everything about this article screams "illegal", "foolish" and "slippery slope".

Just like everything else, it will be built for a "good purpose" (space lasers for aliens or asteroids, genetic modification for babies with genetic disorders, etc) - but with the door opened an inch, the rest of the world will smash the door in to get a piece of the new tech.

Fuck ethically-unregulated technological progress.

How Joe Rogan’s Hugely Popular Podcast Became an Essential Platform for “Freethinkers” Who Hate the Left (Left is turning on Rogan for not supporting censorship, at one point use overtly right phrases etc, attack him for every controversial guest ever, proving 1st line true, which they mocked) by Vigte in whatever

Almost as if women have higher empathy than men - leading them to act (at least initially) from the heart, rather than the head.

Such a difference would explain the long term professional differences (warriors vs caretakers) between the genders that (with a hint of "genes matter", both of which) are being thrown into the trash by liberal sciences.

The Canadian subreddits in particular, and the cesspool of /r/politics, are all so tightly controlled that you'd think /r/Vancouver especially, has nothing but left wing loonies.

I can't even read a single page of post titles from my home city's sub, it's fucking disgusting (and no it's not Vancouver) - knowing that those kind of people live in my city and could be in my proximity or interact with me makes me feel ill and makes me want to move the fuck away.

Probably because the only people attracted to the job are usually only one of two types of people:

1) People who are willing to risk their lives to protect their community

2) People attracted to power, badges and guns - your typical highschool bully.

The bullies are definitely the majority and almost certain are the ones who plan and execute these kinds of "drills" - they want to have fun with their authority, geez, why is that such a problem!? /s

2nd paragraph, they claim:

Harris bemoaned a “world where people are having their reputations destroyed and their careers threatened for tweets they sent as teenagers,” though he didn’t specify whose reputations had been ruined by their teenage tweets, and Rogan didn’t ask him to clarify. But the implication was clear: Holding people accountable for what they say and what those words do is an offense far worse than saying cruel, racist, and divisive things in the first place. The reputational damage done to the utterer is the real social problem, not the more diffuse damage done by the utterance.

Then they do exactly that for the rest of the article, attacking him for every controversial guest he's hosted).

At one point, they use a plainly Owen Benjamin (right wing stnad up comedian and live streamer) insult:

As a podcaster, the 51-year-old Rogan is basically what you’d get if a less-neurotic Marc Maron and a less-manic Alex Jones had a baby who looked like a muscular thumb.

It's hard to tell if the author is a crypto-Rightwinger, whether the left has been stealing memes from the right and/or watching their content/studying their enemy.

All TenCent can do is copy existing properties (see "PubG mobile"), they will just pay for access to Reddit until they can fully copy it then they will take their ball and go home.

I asked my parents if I could watch it (during the first or second season when it first came out) - they watched it with me and told me no more, because it had no real message and thus no real purpose.

When I watched it a few years later, I realised they were right.

Until I watched it again recently - they've changed, the show has changed and now I've watched every season. My parents were right at the time - but so so wrong now, a bias I am sure they won't ever be able to get over.

My favourite line was this one, from Stan, Season 10 episode 12:

"Couldn't evolution just be the answer to how and not why?"
