That's exactly what I'm complaining about, one can't bring up a more nuanced argument because some nuts are claiming that the earth is flat.


Flat earthers actually have this kind of gatekeeping now. You just can't get into their forums without being serious about it, they even seem to be conducting some kind of member selection. They're even selective about other conspiracy theories like anti-vaccination movement (I belive) and although their own circlejerk is pretty farfetched they don't identify with some other tinfoil groups it seems ("don't compare us to those crazyman" ).

I know this because one of my female friends hunts these kind of forums just for laughs  

Damn the world is crazy XD

Don't you know? Flat earth is a serious movement for serious people, they don't have time to waste with conspiracy theories.

Well, I haven't been posting much either lately, for once I don't talk out of personal experience. lol

smdh. the "flat-earther/reptilan space overlords" bs was created to discredit the people who question the establishment/globalism bs. sure, you might have actual retards who accepted this, because there ARE loons out there; but that stuff was literally created by the same people who push the leftist bs from the top down.

if you can't see how they're creating and using extremes to divide people from every spectrum, then you're NOT paying attention.

I wouldn't go as far as to say that it was something created by someone, but it definitely was pushed to discredit questioning things.

Like anti-vax here, there used to be frequent reportages about anti-vax doctors and how they're threatening our healthcare system. The result is that you can't question the safety of a vaccine in particular that you're immediately branded with denying them in full.

But it probably began from concerned citizenry after their kids got some fever or something after a vaccine and discovered there used to be lead as a preserver compound, even though that was before regulations. These are risky maneuvers, if "big pharma" were to create a conspiracy of the sort, eventually some government would ask their medical board to at least investigate, which means money wasted.

It's not like money can't be invested in buying "scientific credibility" for something, there've been many examples in the past where some big company has bought a research which was supposed to prove one thing only (the thing that brings revenue) and surprisingly enough - that research proved exactly that thing. People in general are totally clueless about the object of such researches and are willing to take "experts said" and "scientist proved" at face value. How many and what kinds of experts and scientists have said and proved whatever is another thing entirely which, from consumer economy's point of view, isn't that important because for every potentially skeptical buyer you can get 10 willing ones after you advertise the scientific benefits (or lack of negatives) of your product. Latest fashion is the COVID vaccines which are expected to appear en masse next year at the latest - and the Russians already claim to have their own - no matter that everyone in the field says that it takes no less than 10 years to develop a vaccine which is more or less guaranteed to help more than it hurts.

Maybe it started as such, but belive me it grew to something disturbingly big. Like they literally try to prove it's the truth, and one guy even died while trying to "prove" it: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-51602655. This is how deep this is currently.

Vaccines are another thing. As a kid I took a few shots becasue every kid at that time was taking it, becasue such were the regulations and nobody undermined it. I belive there were some cases of adverse reactions, but most of us didn't have any serious after effects and we're at least protected now. But the problem with vaccines is that after effects might come up years later. Putting the actual danger aside first it was parents wanting to protect their children against injecting chemicals into their bloodstream, but now it's about 5G and chip-ing the populace via injections :/

The problem with today is that you have so many sources of information and you're constantly bombarded with contradicting "facts" (hence people are so confused). It really is hard to tell what is the truth, because you can only lean on your "gut-feeling" and that is not always right...

do you have any idea how many people are involved in pushing/reenforcing bs narratives to divide people? this goes way beyond the few nutcases who believe such snow. there are many more people who KNOW it's bs pushing the conspiracy-theory bs(to discredit even discussing actual conspiracies) than people actually believing such snow. then you've got trolls like those on 4chan who just spread bs for snows and giggles.

Here's the thing though. 4chan BSing is at least hilarious. remember all those iPhone ads they did?

But the latest cons were weak. Last I know about was trying to make soys claim that the national flag of the Kingdom of Norway is actually the Confederate States of America flag.

the guys that did the old stuff moved over to infinitychan(which the establishment then tried to close down). there are only stragglers of the old chan(which is overrun by fedposters now) still there; myself included. from time to time some of the newer cats come up with good stuff. the whole "it's ok to be white" came from them, because they knew the anti-white reaction would redpill more people who hadn't already caught on to the anti-white racism pushed by the leftists' masters.

Their memes are weak indeed now, someone started pushing the "built for BBC" meme, weak and forced imo, now, "built for BPC" is actually much funnier due to the absurdity of it.

It's ok to be white was probably the strongest that came out in the recent times, I always found it funny that instead of deconstructing and accepting it, thus depriving it of any racist value... They just decided to do the same thing they did to white lives matter. You ain't talking about our issues specifically so no, this message can't pass.

My mind now is sort of having a laugh reading, again, Portal 2 quotes. Some are really interesting:

Quote:
"Remember before when I was talking about smelly garbage standing around being useless? That was a metaphor. I was actually talking about you. And I'm sorry. You didn't react at the time, so I was worried it sailed right over your head. Which would have made this apology seem insane. That's why I had to call you garbage a second time just now."


GLaDOS and Cave Jonhson. I would love playing a spin-off with these two when they were alive.

Good day. I want to buy my first diamond in my life and start my collection. I was reading about the 4c diamond standard today. Diamonds, as carriers of unique hardness and other interesting properties, are objects of close attention of scientists, are both an object of research and valuable material for use in technology. Diamonds are very much like humans. Almost every one of them has flaws that you just need to be able to discern.

Less people died up to this point in 2020 than in 2019 in my country. But forget that, the deadly coronavirus is on the loose and we have to give up on our liberties so we don't get infected. Masks, curfews and lockdowns ftw! Sanitary dictatorship for the good of the people.

Is there an end to this stupidity?

The police haven't been diligent at all in enforcing such measures, so I don't really mind.
