Great thread title. Actually sang it in my head.
Come on, pelican.

My friend's ex is now going to shack up with a guy she's been with for two months.
i seriously dont care what my ex's are doing. specially my friends' ex girlfriends.
Yeah, heaven forbid I show concern for my friends adopted children.
Sounds like your friend dodged a bullet!
At a certain age, people make decisions a lot quicker. It can be practical, though also naturally not
well. let me tell you something. the kid and your friend are gonna be okay.
it sucks but they're healthy and alive.
Marinate on this.
Did everyone just get forced to review the sites rules?
It claimed it was just updated, what we’re the changes? No changes seemed obvious
It pretty much says Tunoc will be banned for eternity for trolling. lol
I certainly would have paid more attention to it if I were you.
You know, I have been heavily against the concept of ignoring any posters for years now...but the past month or so putting a few folks on here on ignore has been absolute bliss. Some conversations are difficult to follow (only seeing replies and all), but for the most part, it's been amazing for the blood pressure.
Basically the warning system got modified a bit in terms of expiry. First one is 45 days, subsequent are 90 days. So it's a little bit harder to play the go off the rails every 30 days game.
I got like 10 mins into the first video before I had to check to see if this wasn't a prank channel. That guy should just call his channel Buzzfeed: Conspiracy Edition.
All that guy does is take readily available scientific information and frame it in a "THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA HATES ME FOR UNCOVERING THESE SECRETS" ****ty narrarive.
Does it get better? Or should I assume that he's just going to keep "blowing my mind" with ordinary mundane science facts that anyone with access to Google can find within seconds?
The guy doesn't even get his facts straight. Copernicus's theory of heliocentrism was accepted by the Catholic church for something like 70 years before they denounced it for political reasons. It wasn't that "a brilliant mind was censored by the mainstream media" BS, it's that the Catholic church originally agreed with him, but they changed their stance based on the politics of trying to fight the wave of Protestantism that was taking place.
Many Catholic universities even taught heliocentrism.
It never ceases to amaze how people will believe a 29 minute video but not take 5 minutes to Google things themselves.
Alas, the rise of the information era doesn't specifically mean the rise of good information.
I hate that it's not just a guy trying to have a scientific youtube channel. That would be fine. There's plenty of very good science channels out there.
It's a guy trying to have a "the only true knowledge is the secret knowledge that the MAINSTREAM tells you is fake, but we're so smart because secret knowlwdge is best knowledge!!!" channel. Directly targets people who feel like they're smart because they "know something no one else does", rather than feel like they're smart because they actually just learned a thing and learning in general is awesome and doesn't need to be "secret conspiracy facts" in order to be valid knowledge. Learning things is it's own reward. It shouldn't have to make you feel like you're in a secret club in order to be valid.
Like... For f**ks sakes. Most people in the scientific community would LOVE it if you learned this stuff. Impact forces of asteriods? Giant sloths? Copernicus (assuming you actually get your Copernicus facts straight, that is)... There's no frigging conspiracy on any of this. The "mainstream science community" would love it if the average person picked up a goddamn book for once in your life, you know?
If there's something out there The Man doesn't want you to know, you're not going to find it on a youtube channel. If the government/Illuminati/lizard people or whoever were really as powerful and out there as the conspiracy theories claim, all those folks starting conspiracy theories would be wearing cement shoes at the bottom of the ocean before any of us commoners hear about it.
