Comment Re:How many phones? (Score 1) 288

I can't read the story.

uBlock Origin has prevented the following page from loading:

How many phones did she have? 2-3 is one thing. 50 is another thing entirely.

2 or 3, but she was also a woman, a journalist and coming from the middle east so I'm surprised she got out of there with as little hassle as she did. Probably because she told them to contact the wsj lawyers and they couldn't be dealing with anyone who actually knows the law so they let her go. I wonder if it ended up like that for the next one they pulled.

If we approved of it we'd still be doing it. And if we're being honest we did none of that, people that were alive hundreds of years ago did that lived on the same lands we do. They're doing that over there today. Just because a thing happened in the past and people at the time were ok with it doesn't mean we today can't look back and say what they fuck were they doing? Just like we look over there and say what the fuck.

Essentially what you saying is everything that happened in the past is ok to happen again because it happened before?

People are nuts to be sure, religious folk, some at least especially so, but you have to admit this is a breed apart. Luckily we mostly manage to keep them at bay in the west but you are right, it can be pretty precarious and if they got the power I wouldn't put it past them to try and keep it as hard as these guys.

Nah, none of the real verifiable stuff matters, it was all fake too because after thinking about it for a few seconds I decided so. None of the legitimate refutations of my batshits crazy claims are accepted or understood and are therefore hogwash

On a more serious note, I do love how a couple of the big conspiracy claims, namely the shadows and waving flag just assume such stupidity in the midst of absolute professionalism. Like they think the people planning it wouldn't have figured to to just use one big spotlight and turn off the AC.
