I've got two, namely

That Doom feature in Wax Poetics was interesting. He was all like, "I'm just a regular guy

which I thought was too boring to post, and

GOD CUTTY WHY DON'T YOU QUIT

which was supposed to be a funny post on the lose weight thread, but I thought it might be interpreted as serious.

I was gonna post on the '"500 Days of Summer" thread that I thought it would make a good back story for Cobra Commander, but I didn't feel like searching for the thread, coz what if someone already made the comment? I'd have to do 'edit' 'find' 'cobra', and display all posts. So, I posted it on facebook anyway.

I don't know? It's got a woman in the title, but it's two years old and the reads are on-site reads. It doesn't make sense. The simpsons porn one only partly makes sense, but a lot of those reads are site reads too. Wait, I get that one, because it persists because of the most read threads page working in concert with google hits. But the other one with the girl I just don't get, unless it's a lesser version of the same phenomenon.

Fact: www.dhmo.org is a website dedicated to that stupid joke your chemistry teacher makes in high school about dihydrogen monoxide (H2O) being the most abundant, potentially dangerous chemical in the world.

Fact: according to double top-secret web analytics I saw for epa.g0v today, the number two referrer to EPA's website in the past 3 months was www.dhmo.org, and it's been in the top 5 for the past year.

the odd thing about Fred in this whole thing is that he was always working overtime apologizing for some of the shittiest Americans most responsible for policies impacting the rest of the world. He spent a million words admonishing those of us who have to live in this shithole against advocating too strongly for real change.

fred's bans were both ages ago. if you really want to understand why, the only way is to go back and read all the posts about them from that time. nobody else is going to put together a history of it that's much use. certainly the time to litigate it would have been back then --- everything looks better in vague hindsight without all the posts in front of us.

Doctor Casino, Monday, 21 September 2020 01:57 (six days ago) link

Part of the way genocide jokes work is a) it matters who is making them (e.g. few people think it's unacceptable for Jews to joke about the Shoah); b) insofar as genocide is the epitome of human nihilism, it screams 'desacralization', i.e. nothing can ever be sacred again after such an event, including genocide, so we might as well make fun of it for cathartic purposes. The second condition was definitely met here as far as I'm concerned, it's the first that is still up for debate, at least in the context of ILX.

Quick derail re: yr post, pom: I just don't agree with the premise that *anyone* can make fun of genocide after its event as elucidated in yr point b, and joking about indigenous genocide if yr a settler is ghastly, afaic. i don't want to assume unperson's ethnic background, but I don't think my stance is one of leftist sanctimony run amok— it's one of not wanting to poke at wounds that are still festering due to the hegemonic political ideology in the US.

Even though I am personally minorly harmed by the SALT cap, being in a high-tax blue state, there's really not that much justification for eliminating it other than a giveaway to donors tbh.

― longtime caller, first time listener (man alive), Thursday, September 17, 2020 1:21 PM (one week ago)

Because the SALT cap was politically punitive and legally unfair in terms of the logic of the tax code? Granted it isn't as ridiculously unfair as the marriage penalty vis a vis student loan interest, the fact the maximum deduction for student loan interest hasn't gone up in 20 years, and the absurdly low maximum pre-tax deduction for dependent care ... but if you think about the fact that the SALT cap doesn't affect business entities and only individual taxpayers, and think about who the donors _are_ ...your post just seems like it's missing important things.
