    [–] GOP operative admits under oath she collected blank NC absentee ballots and filled in GOP candidates. spacelincoln 2 points ago in esist

    I get it, and I’m in that place often. I guess what I’m getting at is I’ve heard way more awful and racist things said in NYC and Philly than in Durham. I’m a yankee, but the only thing we do that is more annoying than commenting on what “real snow is”, is patting ourselves on our backs because we aren’t confederates. That leaves a big blind spot. Urban vs rural, north vs south, etc- those are just symptoms of the real problem, which is decent people vs trash.

    No arguments about what you’re calling “hick culture”. The state is more than that, however, and those cities can be the future of NC.

    [–] Muslims living in the West are gradually becoming integrated spacelincoln 11 points ago in religion

    Well, if your family immigrated to the Midwest 150 years ago, you forget that they spoke German for almost the entire time. It’s a lack of perspective.

    Dude I get it, but there’s a lot of NC that is great. I don’t know why you keep associating all of us with reactionaries.

    [–] Question about divorce in Christianity spacelincoln 1 points ago in theology

    Sometimes things just don’t work. Don’t waste your time looking for absolutes in everything.

    [–] TIL that the Chernobyl disaster could have been 10x worse and could have affected most of Europe if three volunteer divers didn't drain a pool to prevent a second explosion. spacelincoln 1 points ago in todayilearned

    One thing the US does better than almost anywhere else is control systems and safety. By comparison there was a Russian physicist who for some reason was working with a particle accelerator with the beam on. Managed to put his head into the beam. Should’ve killed him but somehow survived.

    I can’t control what people do and I’m not getting drawn into an asinine debate. If downvoting makes you happy, you do you.

    Somehow I will find a way to manage with your disapproval.

    Maybe it’s a bit much, but if it helps one person who is triggered by this, it’s worth it.

    That’s not to say it should be censored; this is just close to home for me. This disorder carries a lot of shame, and so it’s a very silent disease. I’ll always risk negative karma to share a resource.

    More likely a pro-Ana eating disordered person. As someone who is close to a victim of ED, my heart goes out to these people.

    If anyone reading this suffers or are afraid they have or developing an ED, please 1) head over to r/eatingdisorders and 2) be good to yourself.

    [–] Even if you're not a handyman, you need this. spacelincoln 1 points ago in marvelstudios

    Those are garbage tools. There’s no real incentive to put quality tools in it- these are like an abstraction of a screwdriver or a whiff of socket. If it was a beverage it would be LeCroix.

    “BEHOLD THE POWER OF THOR!”

    clanging of falling tools intensifies

    [–] This one has it all. Crazy anti-vaxx mom, forgery, fraud, contempt, you name it! Unfortunately, LAOP's poor daughter is the one who is suffering because of all this. spacelincoln 665 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago) in bestoflegaladvice

    I have never wanted an update so badly. I’m vaguely considering cryogenics so I don’t have to wait.

    EDIT: this was the comment that put me over 100k karma. Whew, what a wild 11 years.

    [–] Japanese bonsai owners urge thieves to water stolen 400-year-old tree worth $127,700 spacelincoln 2 points ago in news

    No joke we have our own Mr Miyagi in this area. Sweet older Japanese gentleman will set up some shelves on the side of the road and sells bonsai trees. He’s the nicest guy I ever met, I stopped once out of curiosity and talked with him for awhile. He is just in love with the art. I keep thinking about getting one to start with my family.

    [–] Drone out a hornets nest with ease spacelincoln 32 points ago in BeAmazed

    You can get a fairly decent beginner one for 100 or so now. My kid has one that can do a flip and I think my parents got it on sale for like 80

    [–] What's going on with Ellen Page and Chris Pratt being anti-LGBTQ? spacelincoln 215 points ago in OutOfTheLoop

    I grew up in these churches. This is a justification to let them have their cake and eat it too. Especially if said cake is from a discriminatory baker.

    It’s no different than the gymnastics they go through to justify the GOPs economic policy which flies in the face of the Gospels.

    [–] What's going on with Ellen Page and Chris Pratt being anti-LGBTQ? spacelincoln 17 points ago in OutOfTheLoop

    Yup- PCUSA is pretty affirming. Same sex marriage is left to the discretion of the pastor. They allow clergy in committed relationships as well.

    [–] What's going on with Ellen Page and Chris Pratt being anti-LGBTQ? spacelincoln 11 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago) in OutOfTheLoop

    Right or wrong, Page made a big tactical error. So long as Pratt doesn’t engage, she’s going to look like the asshole, and it’s going to detriment the cause.

    You’ve got some on the middle to left supporting her, some apathetic, and a lot who know Pratt and don’t know her outside of this. Meanwhile everyone on the right is going “See? They’re after us!”

    Unless he comes out and calls her a c***, this won’t end well for her or her activism.

    EDIT: I don’t care about downvotes, but I want to address the knee jerk reaction. What I do care that on the left we have an almost bigger purity-test problem than the fucking tea party. It needs to be understood, we don’t get to choose the world we live in, and sometimes you have to be smart about how to deal with these things instead of riding into town on a justice boner. There’s a reason why a lot more of you know who Rosa Parks is than Claudette Colvin.
