    Honestly? Nothing really. What are you going to do, make me look like a creep?

    You can have my blessing... If you show me that you can write a decent Dan Severn rape story.

    2016 was definitely a seminal year in Internet bullshit. Internet bullshit has been around forever, but the election of this year really put it into perspective as far as consequences. The president elect used the Internet as a bullshit bully pulpit and won. Like him or not, it's a scary idea that somebody's internet presence could be so damn influential and tied to a lot of bullshit. I can see why people make comparison between Trump and Hitler. Both were really intent on the strategic use of the 'new media' of that age, like film. It's creepy when somebody is this good at getting their way, largely by bullshitting. It's borderline roguery, and I think it redefines "Bullshido", in a way. Bullshitting about your ranks and belts to get into a hall of fame is nothing compared to bullshitting your way into being Commander in Chief. That's the real Bullshido, using a cult of personality like that to change the world by mostly blowing hot air up..then when it comes to trouble time, you realize bullshitting is NOT the only skill a President needs. Trump could end up having serious buyer's remorse early on when he comes to realize how different it is being Pres, vs. running a biz. He's only familiar with a certain kind of "President", after all, on a much, much smaller scale.

    I'll throw Chris Langan into the mix:



    TL, DR: ************ is trying to pass off meaningless Star Trek technobabble as an actual scientific theory. His followers (Rather than attempting to explain what he's trying to say) just call anybody who doesn't understand him an "idiot." When asked if they themselves understand Langan, they often respond with one of the following cop-outs:

    1. "His work is open to interpretation."

    2. "I get the gist of what he's going for."

    3. "Yes, but I don't owe you an explanation."

    The comments section to that video is where I got RexKwonBlow's "Satanic Void Meditation" quote, by the way.

    **** where do we start:
    -gorilla gets shot, world for months loses its mind.
    -crying bitches from college (and in literal sense) about trump winning needed to be comforted.
    -multiple gendered idiots
    -marajuana oil is the cure for everything
    -accepting mass exodus from middle east without hesitation.
    -steven segal
    -gold medalists in rio claiming they were mugged
    -exploding samsung phones

    Yeah alot of pure **** happened this year (mentioned things that werent previously mentioned).

    Old enough to die for your country and pay taxes? Old enough to vote. No taxation without representation and all that. Besides, disenfranchising people is almost always a bad idea.

    old enough to die for your country? 17 with parents' signature.

    old enough to pay taxes? so 15? maybe even 14 in some states? sounds legit.

    25 was an obvious joke, but some life experience before military service or voting privileges are probably not bad ideas.
