Re: Words I Happen to Dislike

I don't understand stan. Like is it meant to refer to superfans or toxic fans or people who hate shit? I have seen it used in a number of different ways and since I wasn't disaffected enough in my suburban high school to listen to Eminem I have no frame of reference.

How are real estate/rental photos so bad? Do landlords not look at pictures before they post them online? And what fucking justification is there for ads without photos when everyone is carrying a camera with them at all times?

Re: What are you reading?

But if you ain't got anything better, and you don't, whadda we talking about? We're talking about fundamental flaws in the myths underlying the social institutions that fail in their ostensible functions. It's either naive or intellectually dishonest to reject critiques of those myths and instituti...

Re: What are you reading?

If we're admitting that Natural Rights are a social construct, then referring to them as Natural, much less spinning a creation myth about where they come from and how they continue to exist despite being regularly violated is already a Noble Lie. The ontology of Natural Rights requires a foundation...

Obviously? I know you're being flippant but it's clear that natural rights are as socially constructed as you can get. See also founding of America v. Concurrent entrenched Slavery.

Re: This is the thread for people who died, died.

Peter Fonda, 79 As I look through his filmography, I think I've only seen 3-4 movies he was in. Of those, I'd say the best was The Limey . I like Easy Rider , but mainly for all the footage of Route 66 and Monument Valley. Yeah the only movies I remember him in are Easy Rider, The Limey, and Escape...

Re: OFFS: The Forsakening

I'm actually quite open to the possibility that Epstein committed suicide. Where I am wholly sold on some sort of conspiracy theory is in his original prosection. The prosecutor was hit with heavy pressure from above and gave a deal like nobody has ever gotten. Somebody clearly owed Epstein a favor...
