  1. Anyone with the name Isis.
  2. Capitalism is based around voluntary exchanges between people. You can't buy something if someone doesn't want to sell it to you. Full stop.
  3. You should vary your sentences. Right off the bat, you start the vast majority of them with "I". The start is otherwise good in terms of hooking - I'll update as I read through it.
  4. I've had a tube stuck up my wiener as part of surgery. Once I was in a condition to leave the hospital, a nurse had to help me out with a suppository laxitive, because 1: morphine makes it hard for you to take a dump, 2: I hadn't taken a dump since I had the surgery, 3: being high as a kite on morphine makes it very difficult to administer a suppository for yourself.
  5. WoW sucks now /thread
  6. Venezuela
  7. I have indeed. Sassy .gifs galore, btw. I've considered getting into it myself, if I find out whether there's a place for it here. Do you have any tips for someone who wants to or is just starting out?
  8. As far as I'm concerned, Ryan's hit the nail on the head. Cyberbullying isn't an issue, at least not currently. If the future of education goes mostly digital, then we might have issues with kids being assholes to each other on a platform that's mandatory for them to use, but I doubt it'd be a major one as long as identities are easily traceable and it keeps proper logs (so that if bullying does happen, it's immediately clear, unless the bully gains access to another student's ID or something like that.) As it stands today, cyberbullying is just an umbrella term for social media communication that the recipient finds unpleasant, inflammatory, offensive, hurtful, etc. The owners of the platform should be free to dictate what isn't allowed on the platform and are usually (99%) generous enough to provide users with a report and/or block function. I personally believe the solution to our current 'cyberbullying epidemic' is for people to grow thicker skin, but if not that, just filter out the stuff you don't want to see. Ez pz like ur mum.
  9. Lmao at Jimmy wanting to restrict the free market. I thought you were a capitalist.
  10. TheEternalSeeker. I play some Dota 2 and Quake III Arena every once in a blue moon.
  11. 7/10 alone, but when you count the fact that Summer was used as a MoonMan beat, it's easily 10/10.
  12. Same premise as the music expansion thread, except with political opinions. You rate the one above you on a scale from 1-10 (based on how much you agree) and explain why. You then post a political opinion of your own. I'll start: The world would be a better place if Israel or Oman expanded and took over the entire Middle East.
  13. (Specifically pinging those who live in the Middle East (hello @Saddam ) and those who don't, but know about the religion as a whole from experience (hello @Viiolai ) Other people are welcome to join the discussion too, if they're interested.) Islam gets a lot of bad rep and I'd say it's mostly justified, but often misguided. Strawmanning from both sides are so frequent and it sucks, because the discussion isn't going anywhere. No, not all Muslims are terrorists (far from it) but yes, the vast majority of religious terrorists in this day and age are Muslims (Sunni Muslims, specifically.) As I see it, the three main problems with Islam are taqiya, the need for a Caliphate and persecution of infidels. The two people tagged, please correct me if I'm wrong on these things, but I'd say Ibadi is actually a fantastic school of Islam, in that case. Regarding taqiya, the Ibadi version is the less exploitable kitman, which isn't a Qur'anic 'get out of jail free' card used when you need to lie or conceal things about the religion, but rather allows silence or lying by omission only. Uniquely Ibadi is also that a Caliphate isn't a necessity and that it's better to let each Islamic country govern itself, until a single leader deemed fit for the job is found. They also don't think it's necessary for such a Caliph to have descended from the tribe of Muhammad. Last but not least is how they treat non-Muslims. In this regard, Oman (the only Ibadi-majority country) is one of the best, perhaps even the best Islamic country. Sure, it's no Israel and there are definitely areas that need work (Christians for example, are tolerated but building a Church might give you a hard time.) Ibadi discussion in general, I guess? I'm quite intrigued by such a benign(-ish) take on a religion that I consider vile in a lot of ways.
  14. Do you think this is funny, Bry? Fight me IRL.
  15. Jimmy, I'd like to go a little off-topic for a moment and just express my gratitude towards what you're doing here. It's fantastic that you're so enthusiastic about the new feature and that you're using it to spark conversation. I'm very much looking forward to engaging in this new project and hearing what all the different kinds of people interested have to say on the matters Diversity is our strength!
  16. Man that's gay. 'sup.
  17. 1. What are your main reasons for using RR? It's a cozy little community and part of my habitual social media routine thing. 2. What would make you use RR more? Besides more activity? 3. Give 3 things that you think RR is great for. First: Rational discussion. There's a decent amount of viewpoint diversity among generally mature (excluding me) members, and the staff seem generally pro free speech, which means even controversial subjects can be discussed. Second: Out of forum interaction is huge. Third: Making friends. I'll go as far as saying it's one of few small communities, where I don't dislike any of the regulars. 4. Give 3 things about RR you'd like to see change. Besides more activity? Well, there's a kinda baptism by fire for new members, which might discourage people from joining in. I'm indifferent towards seeing it change, but if you want new people, we should probably give them a break. If you want it toned down, let me know. I know I'm one of the worst in that regard. 5. What would make you post more new topics? I'll post threads when I think about it. Ideas come and go.
  18. I'll say it here as well. Kill yourself.
  19. Oh ok Myvagmademedoit. What's crackalackin'?
  20. What was your name before that? Who are you, again?
  21. Not really. You shouldn't be expected to to care about someone if you don't. RIP Chester.
  22. 1v1 League match when?
  23. The important question needs to be asked. In the hypothetical scenario, where you are forced to choose between dropping a nuke that kills every person residing in either Denmark or Sweden, without the risk any consequences or collateral damage of any sort, which do you choose and why?
