Comment Theories on Indonesia and Pacifica abound (Score 1) 129

One of my favorite was from a book in '05 that pinned it pretty definitively in Indonesia. Although the author passed away soon after, fans of his (and some relatives) have been commenting upon some of the research at atlan.org, which was the first thing I thought of when news of this broke.

Its more like 100 Billion in debt.

Yes I know that (with long term factored in) but I was trying to present the worst possible number or my argument....

If you factor in your debt estimate to my original numbers, then the percentage the EU is asking for is more like 14%, not 7.5%, making the EU's request even more absurd and unreasonable...

I think you for the support but really like I said, I prefer to show that even the worst case is still too high a percentage, rather than showing a more accurate number that is more open to debate.

i.e. a massive hypocrite.

Yes, every Christian and every conservative is a hypocrite. It's impossible to live up to our own rules, that's why we're always trying and failing. You are not a hypocrite, however, because you'd have to have standards in order to violate standards. A pig who thinks rolling in shit is just swell is hardly hypocritical when rolling around in shit, is he?

I actually know the bible reasonably well, well enough to know that your allegedly religiously derived rules are nothing of the sort. No, instead you have a bunch of extra-biblical philosophy and selectively cherry pick bits of the bible to support it all the while ignoring the bits of the bible that don't support it and in fact say the opposite.

Yeah, you have it backwards. Catholicism is a philosophy. The Bible is a liturgical tool we compiled to help with our teachings some 400 years after Christ, but it is not the religion itself. This is why protestants are so fucked up. Physics books are written by physicists who understand physics. You then have people who read the physics book and think memorizing it means you understand physics. Wrong. You just know how to recite a book, but not what it means.

Apart from a desire for oppression and a return to glory days of the 1950s where everyone except people like you were repressed, you mean.

Well here we 60-odd years later and everybody's still pretty damn oppressed aren't they? Blacks are burning down the cities, 25% of the women are getting raped on campuses or whatever (which are not exactly bastions of right-wing trad Catholic indoctrination are they?). Seems to me whatever the progressive social movement was trying to do failed miserably. Keep digging that hole though. I'm sure it'll all work out any time now.

I didn't say I think it's okay, I said the girls think it's okay.* We know this because the determining factor in whether a guy is "creepy" or "hot" when coming on to a girl is not the manner of the approach but the attractiveness/social status of the man.

Fat nerd: "Oh hello m'lady, I would very much like to buy you dinner and get to know you better, if that would be all right with you." Polite! Nice! Creepy. Reported to HR.

6'2" Tom Brady looking motherfucker with money and a nice car: "I'm gonna buy you some furniture and then fuck your brains out on it." Bizarre! Awful! Hot. Gets laid. "Teehee he's so aggressive I just love it!"

Now morally I don't agree with any of this casual sex hook-up crap and I think it's ruining civilization turning the women into trash objects and the men into either vapid playboys or bitter loners and now 70% of men 20-35 are unmarried. Kind of disastrous for the next generation. But this is how women behave. It's called "hypergamy." Eggs are expensive, sperm is cheap, don't waste expensive eggs on low-quality sperm.

When I was younger I was selectively famous in a niche artistic circle. People knew who I was. I'd go to a convention and girls way out of my league would want to climb me like a tree. Just because I had a little bit more social status. Go back home and go to a club where I was just another guy and not a second look. That's just how humans are wired. This is why 80% of the women on Tinder are only fucking 20% of the guys.

* I went and read your article and it says basically the same thing I did: whether something is creepy or hot is determined by the boundary set by the woman. However women set very different boundaries for rich hot guys than for fat nerds. The moral of the story is "don't be a fat nerd."

And this makes it OK to harass and coerce women into sex... how?

I never said it was okay. My point was that he was so pathetic his girlfriend was out banging other guys, and then so hard-up he thinks it's a good idea to go begging subordinates to do his girlfriend's job. I'm just laughing at the entire situation.

That's a good point. I am not doing anything in the bedroom that will get our city firebombed, so you can rest assured.

Then again I recall Jerry Falwell saying that Hurricane Katrina was God's justice on New Orleans for the gays. But since the flooding mostly skipped the gay district, it seems to have been God's justice on the gay-adjacent. I guess we need more data points to figure out who exactly God is hating these days.
