    [–] Nice one, Bernie zombychicken -2 points ago in Conservative

    That's a completely different thing though. When he says he wants money out of politics, he means he doesn't want big corporations donating millions of dollars to campaigns. Promising government benefits isn't bribery.

    [–] What's the most overrated book? zombychicken 1 points ago in books

    Harry Potter. Every book's plot is solved by some bullshit magic that they pull out of nowhere and never use again: The time turner, the polyjuice potion (though I admit they used it more than once, there were many more situations where it would have been helpful), that one good luck potion, horcruxes, the room of requirement, and portkeys, just to name a few.

    [–] Is it time for the Democrats to admit Bernie Sanders is their best hope against Trump? zombychicken 3 points ago in politics

    ITT: people who don't know the purpose of super delegates, don't know how polls work, and don't know anything about how elections work.

    [–] Bernie Sanders, The Bum Who Wants Your Money - "It took him **40 years** to collect his first steady paycheck — and it was a government check." - "Has as much as $65k of credit card debt" zombychicken 3 points ago in Conservative

    Come on guys lets not slam him for things that have nothing to do with his political beliefs. Who gives a shit about what he called his father. Who cares about some of this personal shit. Sure, if it's something political, by all means, shit on him. But it looks like we are grasping at hairs with posts like this.

    [–] What's the most overrated book? zombychicken 14 points ago in books

    God, the Catcher in the Rye is the most overrated book of all time. I know somebody already said this, but I just need a little rant. That book has no plot. Some kid walks around New York for days complaining about how terrible his rich ass life is. He goes to an expensive-as-fuck boarding school, walks away because "it's terrible" and does nothing with his life. Yet all I hear is "It's so relatable!" "That's how I felt when I was a kid too!". Well you must have been a miserable bitch.

    [–] Bernie voter here. Can someone tell me why he is so hated in this sub? It seems to me that he and neolibs agree on a lot of things? Is there one particular issue? Or is it several issues? zombychicken 2 points ago in neoliberal

    I feel like Krugman doesn't adequately explain why he doesn't agree with Bernie. It seems like he just says "Yeah Bernie sounds great, but if you look into his policy it's actually not that great." What are the things that aren't great and that won't work?

    I also don't think it's fair for him to say that Bernie exaggerated the potential gains of his policy. I never really ever heard Bernie saying how everything is going to be amazing if his policy is implemented, or at least that's not the what I took away if he did say that.

    I also agree with Krugman when he says that ad hominem attacks are unproductive, and I think for the most part Bernie didn't really attack people personally (save for things that were factually true). His supporters did engage in ad hominem attacks and the like, but I think it's unfair to judge Bernie by his most passionate supporters. There are many Hillary supporters in this sub who engage in ad hominem attacks on Bernie supporters. Should I judge Hillary based on their behavior?

    "It is time to bring our neighbors out of the shadows. It is time to give them legal status. It is time to create a reasonable path to citizenship."

    "I, myself, am the son of an immigrant. Their story, my story, our story, is a story of America. It is a story that continues to this day in families all across the United States."

    Both of those are quotes from Bernie. Why do you think he hates immigrants? I've also already admitted that I disagree with him on trade. And I'm gonna need a source saying that his economics are worse than Trumps'.

    [–] What's your unpopular Pink Floyd opinion? zombychicken 1 points ago in pinkfloyd

    I agree with your last one. Echoes sounds kind of out of place and doesn't really know what it wants to be.

    [–] What question will immediately divide Reddit into two polarized groups? zombychicken -3 points ago in AskReddit

    Objectively it is pretty fucked up, but I still don't really care. Still works the same.

    [–] What question will immediately divide Reddit into two polarized groups? zombychicken 3 points ago in AskReddit

    Yeah I've heard that too, but at this point the reasoning is basically "I got circumcised, so my son will too". It's barbaric in the way that piercings are. There's no real reason to do it, but there's also no reason not to do it. And besides, it's always a fun surprise for the non-American girls I've been with.

    [–] What is a movie you despise, but everyone else seems to love? zombychicken 7 points ago in AskReddit

    Interstellar was dumb as fuck. All the characters made terrible decisions constantly and never stopped bitching, and don't even get me started on Anne Hathaway. The fifth dimension bullshit made no sense and the whole premise was ridiculous.

    [–] Would it be possible to artificially create an atmosphere like Earth has on Mars? zombychicken 5 points ago in askscience

    It would be possible, it would just take a while. Adding gas isn't the problem; we do it all the time here on earth with global warming and such. Once you have enough CO2 in the atmosphere, add plants to get oxygen. The problem is that pesky solar radiation. Mars doesn't have a protective magnetic shield like Earth has, so the constant radiation would beat the atmosphere into space.
