fact: nobody outside US exists and the only law is US and only job is US and only resource is US and only everything is US
 
Politifact rates TRUE
Ugh, some resistance idiot is replying to Rob Portman like "Oktoberfest in September? What a rule breaker just like gorsuch" and it's like "no you fucking idiot Oktoberfest is in September"
replies and mutes immediately
I'm glad that resistance people are the dumbest idiots on the planet
It totally rules that were fucked
 
 
10 hours later…
11:41 AM
old article, onion article, but good article
also I strongly recommend against clicking at that one slideshow in sidebar
 
@Avery As in those are 10 actual giant penises?
 
@Nzall yes
 
At least they had an interstitial that warned for NSFW
I'll watch it at home then
 
eh, whatever floats your boat
 
12:31 PM
Wtf
Ankara metro is getting body and bag xray scanners
I swear
 
12:54 PM
St. Louis officers chant "whose streets, our streets" while arresting protesters http://wapo.st/2hctNEc
🆒
 
@Unionhawk That emote doesn't render for me
 
1:08 PM
Is that a emoji with the text cool in it?
Is that a thing? Why is that a thing
Emojis have gone too far
 
@Unionhawk Protect and serve Arrest and rule.
 
I wonder why the people of St. Louis are mad at a police department that trampled then handcuffed an old lady
And maced a guy who tried to help her up
 
1:28 PM
The stupidest hot take I've ever seen: "Hinduism is anti-Christian and Buddhism gets its 'ism' from Hinduism and that's why it's anti-Christian too."
So because Hinduism and Buddhism both end in "-ism" but Christianity doesn't, those religions are anti-Christian?
I mean, there are so many things wrong with that, I don't even know where to start.
 
Racism is anti-christian because it ends in ism
am I doing this right
 
Seems reasonable
 
To be fair that's a true statement with a dumb because
 
It's not a true statement in any definition of the word true I know of
 
GOP lawmaker: Trump calling Kim Jong-un "Rocket Man" was a "funny way" to get under his skin http://hill.cm/M0zUYi0 https://t.co/yneDvQUWDU
What???
"HAHAH YOU HAVE MISSILES LOL PWNED"
 
1:38 PM
It's adorable that the gop thinks trump acts on anything more than base instincts
 
@TimStone "Nuking Japan was a 'funny way' to get under Trump's skin." - North Korean headlines probably
 
Like it's not even an insult, I don't understand how these people are even terrible at being assholes
 
Because the right can't do comedy
That's a fundamental law of nature
The right is physically incapable of making a joke
And if you don't buy that look at Mike Huckabee's posts
 
tbh that's a very good point
AARP stands ready to work with Congress on commonsense, bipartisan solutions to improve health care. #GrahamCassidy is not that bill.
lol at literally every proposal seriously pissing off the AARP
 
B I P A R T I S A N S H I P
 
1:42 PM
What's AARP, for the not-americans?
 
@KevinvanderVelden the american association of retired persons
The one group you decidedly want on your side always
 
Old people have nothing better to do than to vote so generally you want them to vote for you
 
Also there's a lot of them
 
I could've sworn there was something else that used the AARP acrostic.
@TimStone Old people are conservative everywhere except healthcare, it seems.
 
1:46 PM
I mean
I don't think the AARP would go for single payer
technically
 
To be fair, conservative positions on things not healthcare literally don't affect them.
Climate change? Who cares, I'm dying in <10 years.
Gerrymandering? Who cares, I'm dying in <10 years.
Reproductive rights? Who cares, I'm dying in <10 years.
 
@Unionhawk I mean we already have Medicare?
 
Right but medicare for all is clearly communism
Think about the health insurance companies that people love
 
Graham/Cassidy keeps Obamacare and tells the states to run it. No thanks.
 
Your health insurance company is like your friend.
 
1:50 PM
lolrekt
 
You know, that friend that you try to keep happy because you suspect that he may be psychopathic and would kill you if you pissed him off in any way.
 
@TimStone I mean, yes, no thanks, but because that's reckless, not because it's not reckless enough
 
@TimStone conservatives should vote no, this is true
Everyone should vote no
 
My favorite thing about Graham/Cassidy is that apparently we can't fight for things not getting worse and for things getting better at the same time
so it's caused a "STOP FIGHTING FOR SINGLE PAYER, FOCUS ON THE REAL PROBLEMS"
as if the perfect response to "we should repeal ACA" is "actually everyone likes the ACA" instead of "no we should keep it but it's not enough to just keep it"
which is why the democrats are going to lose a thousand more seats
 
Speaking of the AARP I accidentally got the One a Day Men's 50+ vitamins instead of just the normal ones so now I'm @Sternold
 
1:56 PM
@TimStone I think legally they have to send you an AARP card now
 
I wonder what the difference is, will these make me extra ornery?
Seems to just have excessive amounts of stuff, and also Molybdenum
 
@TimStone I would put my bet on "yes"
 
@TimStone You'll just wind up with a pair of women's jeans.
 
@TimStone You can never get enough Molybdenum (he says without actually knowing if that's the case)
 
Molly B. brand denim.
 
2:02 PM
@Yuuki >_>
shakes head
@MBraedley There's only 90 micrograms so I suspect you can!
120% DRV
Oh, and the 50+ Advantage also contains titanium dioxide
For colour
Since for some reason it was important that the old people vitamins be blue
 
> Although human toxicity data is unavailable, animal studies have shown that chronic ingestion of more than 10 mg/day of molybdenum can cause diarrhea, growth retardation, infertility, low birth weight, and gout; it can also affect the lungs, kidneys, and liver
Yeah you don't want too much of that
 
Good times, good times
 
> Average daily intake varies between 120 and 240 μg - higher than dietary recommendations
Sooo, 90 microgram per pill I assume? That's quite a lot =p
 
Indeed
Also has 25 micrograms of B12, which is 417% your DRV
Love to piss away excess nutrients
 
I can't remember where the quote was from, but america basically has worlds most expensive piss due to all those excess things
 
2:08 PM
I'd believe it
 
@TimStone Um, titanium dioxide is white...
 
That's why it's called "titanium hwite".
 
As are many titanium compounds
 
Multivitamins are fairly useless, for the record, but I really need to go outside more so the extra vitamin D helps >_>
*for definitions of more meaning "at all, during the day"
 
I know the feeling
 
2:10 PM
@MBraedley That's what I thought at first but then saw the pills and went "Hmm" but now I have to wonder what the hell makes them blue
Oh
 
Blue #50
 
Aren't there vitamine d supplements though?
 
They just add blue
 
lol
 
I like that we're treating blue like a physical substance you can just add to things
 
2:10 PM
@KevinvanderVelden Yeah, but who knows what else I'm missing
 
@TimStone this is true
 
@Unionhawk WRONG
It's FD&C Blue #1 Lake
 
I see
 
I guess the titanium dioxide is to whiten the mixture before adding the colouring since the normal pills are this gross beige colour
 
@TimStone That would seem plausible
 
2:12 PM
These also don't smell as bad which I have no plausible explanation for
 
Why are you even smelling them?
 
The original ones you can actually smell when you open the bottle
Like just being in proximity
 
A plausible story
 
Define proximity
3 miles?
 
What's that in actual people units?
 
2:19 PM
@Unionhawk Get out
Oh wow, Stanislav Petrov has died, RIP & Thanks
 
In may?
Oh yeah that guy
 
Yeah that was like 3 billion years ago
 
Yeah, apparently
 
@Avery Definitive proof that there is no god
 
2:25 PM
@Avery Because Microsoft is Cool™
 
@Avery No, why, no
No no no
 
@Avery wait, 2.0? Was there a previous version of it?
 
6 messages moved from The Bridge
Horrific things happening in 2017 belong in here
 
Was it reported by anyone at the time? RT is reporting on it today saying Karl Schumacher only recently found out
 
pls
 
2:28 PM
I guess Wikipedia was updated with the obit, maybe someone noticed then and wrote about it
 
@fredley pls
 
@TimStone Wow, what an omen
 
The average millennial spends $96 billion on food. Here's how we break it down http://bonap.it/bxcVWz7 https://t.co/nYr7c2Yfan
thinking face intensifies
 
:(
 
discord gets animated emojis when
 
2:34 PM
So when do we get animojis™ here?
 
@TimStone "How we break it down" - in our stomachs, of course
 
But animojis™ are clearly the Next Big Thing™!
 
@TimStone haha millenials
 
@TimStone umm...
 
2:36 PM
@PrivatePansy Not necessarily, we might have a smart gadget that does that for us
@MBraedley Yes
 
@TimStone I wouldn't let it near my food if it wasn't Internet and Instagram connected
 
@TimStone Like, over the course of a lifetime, because the "average millennial" doesn't even earn $1billion a year.
 
Also wait yeah what
 
Yes
 
(Most millennials won't even earn $1 billion in their lifetime)
 
2:38 PM
I think you're looking for "total"
 
But no, it's annually
@Unionhawk Yes
 
@MBraedley I think they will earn $1, but not a billion
 
Also, they don't define millennial, making even the number interpreted correctly completely useless
 
@Arperum You have to wait those two minutes before pointing out obvious errors
 
@TimStone Anyone under the age of 57
 
2:39 PM
@MBraedley Yea, I should have, but I'm hungry, so I can't wait.
 
Hmm food
Is today really spicy wraps day or is that tomorrow?
 
@KevinvanderVelden I am not an eater of really spicy food generally speaking.
 
I am slowly increasing my tolerance
Because it's pretty good
 
I shoudl do more of that too, since some very tasty indonesian dishes made at my grilfriends place are rather spicy, and tasty.
 
2:55 PM
There's always ma la spicy. Which is less heat than traditional spicy and more tingling numbness.
 
mmm
Top US security official targeted in mysterious attacks at Cuban embassy: report http://hill.cm/Z49Bl0X https://t.co/YeV8vOnxSR
They seriously need to figure out who the hell is doing this
 
If this happened during the Obama administration, it'd pretty obvious that it'd be a Cuban dissident of some kind since Obama tried to restart diplomacy. But with the current anti-Cuba administration, it really could be anyone.
 
@TimStone Watch it be some shop-keeper that just wants to keep dem kids away
 
Actually, now that I think about it, Obama's administration would only preclude the US-aligned state actor possibility.
Still a bunch of possible perpetrators.
 
There was an article the other day that suggested that the Cubans seem legitimately concerned in a way that leans towards the government not officially being responsible, so it'll be interesting to find out what's going on
 
3:26 PM
I think I finally understand the healthcare debate https://t.co/jJDNvlm0nh
 
@GodEmperorDune CVS ~= centralized version control?
 
3:46 PM
The Concurrent Versions System (CVS), also known as the Concurrent Versioning System, is a free software client-server revision control system in the field of software development. A version control system keeps track of all work and all changes in a set of files, and allows several developers (potentially widely separated in space and time) to collaborate. Dick Grune developed CVS as a series of shell scripts in July 1986. In addition to commercial software developers, CVS became popular with the open source software world and was released under the GNU General Public License. While there was...
(an old, terrible VCS)
 
@GodEmperorDune VCS CVS SVN
CSV SVC
 
comma separated value service
 
4:15 PM
@Unionhawk silicon valley is all about the comma separated value added service
 
@Unionhawk Comma Separated Value Concurrent Version Control System Service
 
Oh god
 
CSVCVCSS
 
@fredley nice, and you get cascading style sheets for free too
 
I think we're good on Graham/Cassidy though?
 
4:23 PM
I hate it when people combine stuff in that way
 
Murkowski is probably a no, Rand is apparently a no, Collins is probably a no, Portman is probably a yes, McCain is probably a yes
but that's already 3
 
@Unionhawk 3 probably nos is not 3 certain nos
 
This is true
 
i'll wait until they vote or shelve it
 
people go "oh what does that mean" and you need to go "Comma Separated Values, Shell Version Control, Card Verification Code, Version Control System, Cascading Style Sheets"
just call it CSVSVCCVCVCSCSS not CSVCVCSS you monster
 
4:31 PM
 
@fredley wait why did israel and russia just bump up
 
@Avery Because Trump
 
@fredley That's an... well, interesting delta
 
not really
 
Wait what
 
4:34 PM
it's a boring predictable delta
 
> At least 21 Americans have been targeted in the mysterious attacks that can cause mild traumatic brain injury.
MILD + TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY don't seem to go together
 
You've ever wondered when we'd hit peak sharing economy? Well...
 
@PrivatePansy wat
why would you rent...
ugh the cleanup
 
@GodEmperorDune I mean I assume modular builds would help.
 
I mean, people share real people, and they're harder to clean
 
4:40 PM
@Sterno i suppose this is accurate

Nice (, French pronunciation: ​[nis]; Niçard Occitan: Niça, classical norm, or Nissa, nonstandard, pronounced [ˈnisa]; Italian: Nizza [ˈnittsa]; Greek: Νίκαια; Latin: Nicaea) is the fifth most populous city in France and the capital of the Alpes-Maritimes département. The urban area of Nice extends beyond the administrative city limits, with a population of about 1 million on an area of 721 km2 (278 sq mi). Located in the French Riviera, on the south east coast of France on the Mediterranean Sea, at the foot of the Alps, Nice is the second-largest French city on the Mediterranean coast and the...
 
Adjective: nice (comparative nicer, superlative nicest)
  1. (obsolete) Silly, ignorant; foolish. [14th-17th c.]
  2. (now rare) Particular in one's conduct; scrupulous, painstaking; choosy. [from 14th c.]
  3. 1749, Henry Fielding, The History of Tom Jones, a Foundling
  4. Mr Blifil, I am confident, understands himself better than to think of seeing my niece any more this morning, after what hath happened. Women are of a nice contexture; and our spirits, when disordered, are not to be recomposed in a moment.

Is... is it supposed to be glitching like that?
 
what glitching?
 
Let me figure out how to make a gif of it
 
@SaintWacko (I'm messing around, it's supposed to be glitching)
 
@Avery Oh okay lol
I couldn't decide whether you were serious or not

Sen Kennedy: "If you give California and New York a big chunk of money they're gonna set up a single payer system. And I wanna prevent that"

Clinton: I'm open to challenging the legitimacy of the election http://hill.cm/dggiqEo https://t.co/JOIHIhxjUZ
Oh. My. Goodness
 
After she made such a big deal about Trump being unwilling to say that he would accept the results of the election, that is not a good idea
Even if it turns out that Russia manipulated the American people to get the outcome they wanted, that doesn't mean that the election itself was illegitimate
 
9:37 PM
Yeah, it's insane
 
love too relitigate the 2016 election almost a full year after it happened
 
Ash
@TimStone This makes me uncomfortable for reasons I don't know how to articulate
 
I think that's a totally expected response to something as crazy and dumb as that is, at least
 
Ash
It just gives me a giant case of "okay nope"
 
@Ash Maybe because a military force marching through a city is usually associated with occupation and oppression
 
Ash
10:16 PM
@murgatroid99 yeah, like I feel like that comes in every sort of "oh hey everything is REALLY BAD" sort of history movie right before everything gets EXTRA BAD
 
You don't need to show off how much physical power the government has over the people if you're getting along with the people just fine
 
Ash
Exactly, this is a lot of weird "LOOK I AM IN CHARGE I HAVE ALL THE COOKIES LOOK AT MY PRETTY SOLDIERS"
 
Especially because the military is in general prohibited from enforcing domestic policy, but there are exceptions
