“To stabilize the market, De Beers had to endow these stones with a sentiment that would inhibit the public from ever reselling them.”
So began engagement rings for the masses. It all started in September of 1938.
The ad agency of N.W. Ayer started “a well-orchestrated advertising and public-relations campaign [to] have a significant impact on the “social attitudes of the public at large and thereby channel American spending toward larger and more expensive diamonds instead of “competitive luxuries.”
…the advertising agency strongly suggested exploiting the relatively new medium of motion pictures. Movie idols, the paragons of romance for the mass audience, would be given diamonds to use as their symbols of indestructible love….
Did it work?
Toward the end of the 1950s, N. W. Ayer reported to De Beers that twenty years of advertisements and publicity had had a pronounced effect on the American psyche. “Since 1939 an entirely new generation of young people has grown to marriageable age,” it said. “To this new generation a diamond ring is considered a necessity to engagements by virtually everyone.” The message had been so successfully impressed on the minds of this generation that those who could not afford to buy a diamond at the time of their marriage would “defer the purchase” rather than forgo it.”
“Like any woman wracked by self-doubt, when it feels like a scene you feel compelled to follow the script. No means no, but yes is what it says on the page. Hence yes to the boss’s extra work; yes to letting your friend vent on the phone even though you’re late; yes to being in a threesome because your boyfriend wanted to.
But later, when you’re done shooting for the day and you have a chance to be yourself, you finally say, “I don’t want you to take this the wrong way… I really love it… but…. I was kind of hoping for something a little… bigger….””

““Stereotypes seem fundamentally stupid. Why would you want to slot people into boxes?”
On a hunch I checked out her blog to see how opposed she was to slotting people into boxes:
“I’m a UK-based usability expert who’s also a writer, editor and designer – and parent, radical feminist and evangelical atheist – blogging about parenting, pregnnancy and childbirth, books, theatre, opera, music, singing, work, grammar, words, typography, publishing, sexism (I’m against it), energy saving, and anything else I damn well please, because, hey, it’s just some blog, y’know…”
I may be wrong, but this appears to be a woman whose whole life is boxes.”
“If you had asked her if she wanted to raise a transvestite she’d have said no– she wants a child free of stereotypes– because there are stereotypes of boys and girls but not of boys who dress like girls. That mixed logic reveals the true intent of her “gender-neutral” project. It isn’t for the kid, it is for her. If it wasn’t for her, you wouldn’t have heard about it. Wasn’t the whole point not to call attention to the gender? Oh, I had it backwards, the whole point was entirely to focus on the gender. Sigh. The main character in this story is herself. The kid is supporting cast. He is not a person, he is a blog topic.”
“”Did you see that wonderful melodrama, Stella Dallas with Barbara Stanwyck? She has a daughter who wants to marry into the upper class, but she is an embarrassment to her daughter. So, the mother – on purpose – played an extremely vulgar, promiscuous mother in front of her daughter’s lover, so that the daughter could drop her, without guilt. The daughter could be furious with her and marry the rich guy. That’s a more difficult sacrifice. It’s not “I will make a big sacrifice and remain deep in their heart.” No, in making the sacrifice, you risk your reputation itself. Is this an extreme case? No, I think every good parent should do this.” […]
She is doing the exact opposite: sacrificing her child’s reputation, subjecting him to potential ridicule and god knows what else, not for his benefit but in order to promote her own identity. It’s not the gender neutrality that’s going to mess this kid up, though it might; but being raised by parents who are using their kid as something other than an end in himself. As was said in a movie I hope has no parallel here: this isn’t going to have a happy ending.”

It’s always a whole different thing if you understand the language, that’s why i’m always surprised when i see non-german speakers say Göbbels was a talented speaker (no matter what you think of him) because if they already think he was a talented speaker without understanding german, what would they think if they understood him?

“When I first heard about travel dating, I thought it was too good to be true. I was making my way through China at the time, living on a budget of about $10 a day which was incredibly stressful. Then I met a couple who seemed completely loved up. The ‘wife’ later revealed that her ‘husband’ was in fact someone she’d just met a few days earlier and the trip they were enjoying, was their first date.
As soon as I heard about Miss Travel, I knew it was a dating experience I wanted to be a part of. After all, I was young and single. I had nothing to lose.
It was nerve-racking at first. I’d listed on my profile that I was looking for someone to pay for my ticket and I didn’t know how the guys would take it. But when I started talking to a businessman from Adelaide, who was going on a trip to Singapore for work and wanted company, I decided to take the plunge.
We actually met locally beforehand and definitely clicked, so I was excited for our second date in a foreign location. We flew business class and stayed at the Marina Bay hotel, which costs $950 a night, and has a beautiful skyline infinity pool. Every day he’d go off to fulfil his work commitments and I’d stay at the hotel, using the breathtaking pool while enjoying cocktails. One afternoon he even paid for me to go to Universal Studios. I didn’t mind that I was alone as I was getting to explore an exciting new country and didn’t have to worry about the cost.
In the evenings, we’d meet up and enjoy dinner and talk about our days. It was perfect.”

When the media points out the idiocies of Sarah Palin, Bachmann, and Perry, it isn’t to discredit them– a maneuver that overt would be distasteful to intelligent media; Pailinizing them sends a more subtle but powerful message: anyone who agrees with these nuts is a nut. The point is not to doubt them, the point is to doubt yourself, nudging you closer to center (i.e. leftward.) That’s how you win an ideological battle.”

“”His ignorance was as remarkable as his knowledge. Of contemporary literature, philosophy and politics he appeared to know next to nothing. Upon my quoting Thomas Carlyle, he inquired in the naivest way who he might be and what he had done. My surprise reached a climax, however, when I found incidentally that he was ignorant of the Copernican Theory and of the composition of the Solar System. That any civilized human being in this nineteenth century should not be aware that the earth traveled round the sun appeared to be to me such an extraordinary fact that I could hardly realize it.
“You appear to be astonished,” he said, smiling at my expression of surprise. “Now that I do know it I shall do my best to forget it.”
“To forget it!”
“You see,” he explained, “I consider that a man’s brain originally is like a little empty attic, and you have to stock it with such furniture as you choose. A fool takes in all the lumber of every sort that he comes across, so that the knowledge which might be useful to him gets crowded out, or at best is jumbled up with a lot of other things so that he has a difficulty in laying his hands upon it. Now the skillful workman is very careful indeed as to what he takes into his brain-attic. He will have nothing but the tools which may help him in doing his work, but of these he has a large assortment, and all in the most perfect order. It is a mistake to think that that little room has elastic walls and can distend to any extent. Depend upon it there comes a time when for every addition of knowledge you forget something that you knew before. It is of the highest importance, therefore, not to have useless facts elbowing out the useful ones.”
“But the Solar System!” I protested.
“What the deuce is it to me?” he interrupted impatiently; “you say that we go round the sun. If we went round the moon it would not make a pennyworth of difference to me or to my work.””
“”When people realize that money cannot be “free”
Money can and has been free, in the sense of non-interest bearing, many times. That’s because the government pulls it out of its ass. There is no good reason to give that money to banks to loan out at interest when the government could simply distribute every years allotment among the citizenry at no interest. The Germans re-armed and fought four planetary empires on this system during WWII. It is very effective. You might also look at Lincoln and the Greenback.”
“Among other things, these writers dislike the fact that a UBI would deliver individuals income in a way that is divorced from working. Such an income arrangement would, it is argued, lead to meaninglessness, social dysfunction, and resentment.
[…] Let me reiterate: 1 in 10 dollars of income produced in this country is paid out to the richest 1% without them having to work for it.
[…] If passive income is so destructive, then the income situation of the 1% surely is a national emergency! Where does the 1% get its meaning with all of that free cash flowing in?”
“It seems to me that the fundamental political problem is that there are diminishing returns to labor.
Suppose it were otherwise and there existed constant return to labor. Then everyone would earn what he produced on the free market and there would be little controversy, as I can see it.
But since there are instead diminishing returns to labor, everyone can receive their own marginal contribution but there exists a huge surplus of wealth produced. And the fundamental question of politics is how is this surplus value divided.
Presently it is divided proportional to the dollar value of capital invested, and the ratio between the amount of capital invested and the total surplus value determines the rate of profit.
This seems to me to be a far more straightforward and unanswerable statement of political economy than anything I have ever read.”
“But the value of the market exceeds all the money in the world by many times over. This is fake money, i.e. usury. Like buying stocks with loan money. You’ve created a system where the total number of tokens is larger than the number of all existing tokens, which always and everywhere results in the redistribution of real capital – land, tools, farms, equipment, factories, houses, labor and on and on and on.
“Do you really think the wealthy can “manipulate money” outside printing at the central bank?”
It’s called loan capital, asshole. No central bank ever issued the 600 Trillion dollars in the derivatives market. When it collapses, these people are going to demand their equivalent in real capital (for which see above). You are very stupid, but that is why we live in the world that we do.”
“[I]f I have $10 and put it in a bank and then that bank loans $9 out, there is now $19 where there was $10.
If I borrow $10 from you, and then you go and repackage this debt into derivatives worth $9 and sell them, there is now $19 in financial assets where there was $10.
It’s functionally the same thing.”
“No new debt or assets are created in the “repackaging”
And yet the derivatives market is estimated to be ~600 trillion. All the countries on earth don’t issue that much money. The whole earth and all the buildings and equipment on it aren’t worth that much, although they will be demanded when the market collapses. Again, it’s called ‘usury’ because fake, made-up non money (“Loan capital”) exceeds the amount of actual capital in the real world. Hence it USES UP the people, the land, industry, the economy, etc. Eventually all property (and labor) belongs to three Jews in NYC. Reread the story of Joseph in Egypt. “

One of the key elements is to draw little lines everywhere: under the eyes, on the fingers, on the feet, and especially on the legs, because that’s where all the hair is! And leg hair makes us look special! Better yet, just draw lines on random areas of the body; it doesn’t fuckin’ matter!

“The subject of vetting immigrants stays in the news. The idea of vetting by President Obama and his allies is that potential immigrants are interviewed by three different government agencies. “Are you a terrorist?” … “Are you sure you are not a terrorist?” … “Are you really sure you are not a terrorist?” Okay, you are in.
The intelligence agencies have a different view, as they have testified to Congress. The intel agencies think vetting requires checking the police and security records of the home country, interviewing officials in the person’s home community, interviewing neighbors where the person lived, and checking references provided by the applicant. With rare exceptions, none of that is possible for Syrian refugees, which is why they cannot be vetted.
Official UN policy is that refugees should be housed in the region from which they were displaced. It’s also much cheaper and avoids the security problem. For Syria, that currently means Jordan and Turkey. There is talk of establishing a safe zone in Syria.
There are exceptions. Local people who helped US armed forces as translators are subject to reprisals by al Qaeda and ISIS, and they are vetted by their US military contacts. These people have not been given priority.
The Obama Administration is using its last months in office to pour as many refugees as possible into the country from Syria. They’ve also opened the southern US border without any vetting at all. Arriving people declare they are refugees from Central America. They are given a court date to present their case for refugee status and then disappear into the general population.”

“Let me see, to learn drawing I should need to learn the following.
– realistic rendering of basic 3D shapes.
– master perspective
– master planes and values
– master 3D shapes on diferent perspectives and with diferent light values
– learn rythm and figure line of action
– learn figure proportions
– learn diferent body parts anatomy, like main bones and muscles, including insertion points
– learn to render a body part in diferent light value studies
– learn how clothing works (drappery)
– learn how animal anatomy works
– learn to render fur
– learn to render plants and vegetation
– learn to render diferent materials
– learn to do backgrounds
– learn composition
so far even if I have years upon drawing and I’m just mediocre I think I’ve gotten to the point where I can make a plan of attack based on what I know of drawing and formulate a plan to learn every specific diferent subject, maybe by deconstructing every difernent part or skills into smaller skills that will be easy to learn.
Maybe by deconstructing every big skill (drawing) into smaller ones and more defined I could track better my improvement.
I do think I’ve stumbled into how to learn a skill, and I’m afraid I just discovered the wheel again.
Do anyone feel the same?”

“You don’t need to focus on any of this shit because when you’re studying anatomy and whatever else (and are practicing drawing those things from imagination) you’ll be practicing these basic fundies at the same time.
And for all the specific things to study, you shouldn’t make it into an autism checklist and should just study those things when you actually need to draw them or are particularly interested in them. (eg. I want to know how to draw a dog so I will study dogs)”

Looking back it’s actually pretty amazing what that one, single artist accomplished in the newspaper comic industry, he singlehandedly forced a lot of good practices that helped stave off its total decay by possibly decades. I got all his books back in the day and it was really interesting to read about his behind the scenes fights against the shitty standards of the medium, how he started to insist on not having his stuff fucked with which gave him way more creative room.
I respect him a ton not just for what he did, but what he DIDN’T: he decided not to do the standard big cash in by making TV or movies or tons of merchandise or whatever, nor to just keep the thing going as a zombie forever once he decided it was done. That’s one of the real keys to the manga/anime industry, that they’re constant FINISHING stuff and moving on. The gigantic multiyear epic franchises are a tiny minority, so even when lots of it is inevitably crap it doesn’t stick around, what works gets used and what doesn’t fades away.

“What kind of job do you do friend? You need to get yourself a typical 40 hour a week job with a set working time. Move close to where you work so you never have to commute for more than 20 minutes. If you could get a 5 minute commute even better, not always possible though. This will give you a lot more free time over a weekly or monthly period.
You could also try switching your sleep schedule to where you sleep when you get home from work, and then wake up and have the rest of the 24 hour day cycle as free time until work comes up again, and then you go to work come home and go to sleep again. For me it makes me feel like I have way more free time even though it is effectively the same, just rearranged.
You could also try finding a job that has 12 hour shifts over the course of 3-4 days, and then gives you 3-4 days off. Firefighters, police officers (not all departments but many have this schedule), nursing, etc.
Ultmately if you can make your life as efficient as possible and waste as little time as you can commuting, cooking, washing clothes, cleaning your apartment, etc. you earn yourself more and more free time. Work on your efficiency and your day will grow longer.”

“In the past six weeks, the Washington Post published two blockbuster stories that went viral: one on how Russia is behind a massive explosion of “fake news,” the other on how it invaded the U.S. electric grid. Both articles received tens of thousands of views and many thousands of shares, helping to convince millions Russia conspired to steal the election from Hillary. The only problem? Both articles were fundamentally false and the publishers were fully aware of that fact before printing the stories.
Each now bears a grumpy editor’s note reluctantly acknowledging that the core claims of the story were fiction: The first note was posted a full two weeks later to the top of the original article; the other was buried the following day at the bottom. It’s too late though. The damage, as evidenced by the viral traffic, has been done. They printed a story they knew was false and waited to issue a retraction until they were forced to- weeks later.”
“Yesterday a young man was abducted, bound, beaten, taken to a secluded place and tortured on a live Facebook stream while his attackers chanted “fuck whitey” and sliced him with a knife and strangled him with rope. More of that hate and violence Trump and his supporters are known for, right?
But this is Facebook’s “news” section. Celebrity gossip and pop trivialities. Seen several other people’s feeds now with the same (post yours).
Here you have a hate crime with an obvious racial motive captured on camera- “his ass deserve it, his ass from Europe.” and the mainstream media took more than 6 hours to publish it after the story broke, while Google and Facebook continue to insist it doesn’t even exist. There are already 100 articles from alternative news for every 1 MSM article, but Facebook insists nobody is talking about it.”

“Spoonfeed me this meme.”
Guy that makes popular instructional youtube videos about figure drawing and anatomy.
He mainly teaches a pretty good constructive method to figure drawing so everyone expected that he would be good at drawing from imagination.
Kinda recently he did a live stream of him talking about methods for drawing from imagination.
Turns out he’s only recently started trying to draw from imagination after over a decade of relying on reference.
Needless to say his stream was a fucking mess and he’s fucking horrible at drawing from imagination which surprises a lot of d/ic/ks considering how good his life drawings are.
The moral is that drawing exclusively from reference (copying) and drawing from imagination are not interchangeable skills.”

Now even more clueless peole move in who value idiotic diversions and “culinary experiences” because their lives are empty and have no real satisfaction.
Hipster might be a better term. The real estate world understands people like this tend to create value in real estate.

“The essence of liberalism is negotiation, a cautious half measure, in the hope that the definitive dispute, the decisive bloody battle, can be transformed into a parliamentary debate and permit the decision to be suspended forever in an everlasting discussion.”
“It amazes me how much political theorists don’t see liberalism as a sane but emergency response to the Wars of Religion. It has always been obvious to me that Liberal regimes keep First Things in abeyance, precisely because without Liberalism it’s all just the war of all against all, to the death. Lyotard called post-modernism a ‘suspicion of meta-narratives’, which it never was. Liberalism is a system of government that defers or deflects questions about First Things back to the individual. This is also why decisions about human action that *require* the State to have such knowledge, or to act as if it had such knowledge, are so nightmarish and interminable – abortion, death penalty, homosexuality, etc. Things that would be handled by taboo or rites of purgation and riddance in simpler societies. The anthropological stuff.
It also occurs to me that this may be why Left-liberals present their pet causes as if they were the latest Crusade announced from Rome. There is a hole in our hearts where the Fuehrer should be.”
“thing is with movies today, and internet is it’s universal. You can’t tell a story to one specific audience, it’s for all to see.

“The problems snipers (referring to both sniper characters and sniper style weaponry) is the fact that A) they’re shitter bait because B) If they’re any good, they can turn anybody with skill into a damn near untouchable god that delivers instant death with two clicks.
Every shitter wants to be an untouchable god, and ending some fuck with a single shot is an undeniable adrenaline rush.
If snipers (again, referring to both things) are bad, then they’re just useless and a waste of everyone’s time, including the devs. If they’re too good, then everyone and their cat is trying to get sick streaks.
I will argue there is a purpose to snipers existing though; beyond being the signature high risk/high reward type of mechanic, the truest function is rapid priority target elimination. Snipers in TF2 can deny a whole push by popping a medic with one click, which is fucking gigantic. In CS:GO, it reduces the capability of the whole team in a flash of a second and just like that the game plan has to change. In games where the removal of a single person can make or break a game, snipers have an undeniable value. At the same time, this value makes them shitter bait but what can you do?
But then you have shit like Overwatch, Call of Duty, Planetside 2 (RIP in sanics), where killing a single person with a single shot doesn’t mean very much in the big picture barring extreme situations that almost anyone else could have also performed in. Except the sniper does it in a single shot rather than a rocket barrage or a volley of fire.
So what happens in some games is that the only purpose for snipers is to have an ever present threat of instantly dying in the game because you have to watch out for that one cunt keeping their distance from the brawl. That’s it. They don’t have an actual purpose beyond being a map-wide threat that people have to constantly worry about. Which is a role with debatable value, lets be honest.”
“I’m somewhat stunned that people keep asking you guys for an Overwatch movie. After the shitstorm raised over Colosseum of Lust (how unfortunate that movie was, ahem, leaked into the internet, oh noes), I thought it was pretty clear that the only relationship DC would have with Blizzard would involve either a flamethrower or high explosives. Lara, Momiji, and Ms. Fow-Chan are the superior waifus, anyway, so who cares? But, uh, Nintendo’s cool with you guys, right? I’m still getting badass Samus?”
“I’m glad you remember, because some people don’t realize what happened last year where the SJWs painted a big red cross over our backs for daring to make a crappy Draenei waifu movie.
Or the fact that Blizz attorneys (Mitchell Silberberg & Knupp) doxxed me
Or the fact that I had to dip into my personal savings to keep the studio afloat so we could get attorneys to fight back (this was before we had monthly patreon)
Or the fact that I had to finish that project knowing that any day could be the last, going from work mode, to attorney meetings, to Blizz legal meetings, then somehow having to mentally gather myself again to focus on delivering for the Patrons
Or the fact that Blizz attorneys threatened me to hand over personal information on fellow SFM artists so they can C&D them (disclaimer: I didnt – instead I refused Blizz, and then got stabbed in the back later by the SFM artists I protected, just another example of our classy community)
Blizzard is a draconian, corrupt, and two faced entity. Don’t believe a word when they say they support fan-works, they don’t support it and never did. They tolerate it to suit their needs for self promotion. Blizzard has a legal obligation to aggressively pursue litigation against anyone that uses the likeness of their characters. If they don’t pursue artists they lose their copyrights so every year their legal team cherry picks a number of people to go after – just so they can have it on record that they’ve protected their IP and thus keep their copyrights. If you’re a WoW artist it’s like playing Russian roulette, except they have a gazillion dollars worth of bullets in the chamber.
The only reason we got off lightly was because A) I didn’t stand for their smoke and mirrors shit B) They couldn’t pin anything on us since all our models are custom hacks C) We are nonprofit/non-commercial and driven by donations D) Transformative Fair Use can be applied to our work
However it’s not a process I’m happy to repeat because I have better things to do than argue semantics all day with jumped up, tiny, hypocrit attorneys. Remember, for them it doesn’t matter if they win or not, they just need to draw it out for as long as possible so they can keep billing Morhaime exorbitant sums.
So yeah, sorry if you don’t get your Overwatch waifus but there are more important things in life such as looking out for my team and feeding families.

“Fascism reeks of male self-pity. It has always been deeply attractive to men who are insecure about their own sexuality and in particular their relationships to women. It is a magic formula for transforming the sexual neurotic into a man-god. The alt-right world is a masturbatory fantasy in which men who are afraid of women get to assert absolute power over them. It is no accident that the pathetic sexual insecurity of Donald Trump’s crude boasting about assaults on women did him no harm with his followers – on the contrary, they could see themselves in him.”

“Loomis’ head construction is like incredibly frustrating training wheels. If you try and take it too far analytically or expect to actually use it as a working method it will drive you insane.
All it is designed to do is to give you an awareness of building complex objects out of simple forms, using concepts like axes to place in perspective, hanging anatomy onto simple forms, and all the other things he mentions.
Scott Eaton does critique Loomis in his anatomy course confirming that the Loomis head doesn’t relate well to the skull.
Also skulls are insanely variable, no specific construction method can help you past a certain point.
You need to come up with your own method.

“The flip side here is with intruders in the house and so forth: you have to shoot them twice, too. One bullet will not reliably kill a man, but two will. Don’t ask me about the physiology here. This is common lore in Texas, where it’s A-OK to riddle the body with bullets as long as it is plainly inside your domicile. A friend of mine who scared off an intruder with a gun but failed to shoot got a stern talking to by the police, who were very mad with him. Evidently it is an unspoken rule that eugenics at this level is legal and encouraged and my friend was instructed in no uncertain terms to shoot the intruder if his house was ever invaded again, but more importantly: to shoot him twice. Obviously, the Dallas police don’t like individuals to shirk their responsibilities in self-law enforcement. My friend is still incredulous at the speech he got and now is more frightened about being broken into again because he feels like the police have placed unrealistic expectations on him.”
“Trump’s behavior at today’s press conference, which dealt with both of the above subjects, will neither be forgotten or silenced. The anti-Russia campaign and its partisans is going to keep doubling down again and again and again.
They know what the alt.right doesn’t: repetition brings results. If Trump can simply hold off war with Russia for four years, he will have performed supernaturally.
My prediction: Congress will suddenly rediscover that it has always had the power to declare war, and indeed, that it is the only branch of government that can declare war. The lügenpresse will inform the American yokels and, whether through Estonia, or Syria, or Ukraine, the Jew will have his war and his millions of dead gentiles. The war will be forced on Trump and if he refuses, he will be removed from office.
There is no precedent in American history for what the next four years are going to be like. It would be like Hitler taking the Chancellorship in a Germany that was already three quarters Bolshevized. […]
The ‘deep state’ doesn’t hate Russia because Trump ‘likes’ Russia. The ‘deep state’ HATES Trump because he will prevent a war with Russia. You have causation backwards.
They have decided on the strategy of linking Trump to Russia, because they have not given up hope on an actual war.”
“Welcome to the age of the sponsorette, where no one has breakfast at Tiffany’s and a 9 to 5 job is an urban legend. What is a sponsorette, you ask? It’s a woman who is put on a pedestal, typically through social platforms such as Instagram, by men who ogle them and women that idolize and aspire to be just like them. Typically found on a beach, martini in hand, on a Tuesday at 3 PM, they seem to be living the life we all want. The question we are all dying to know, however, is, “Who takes these pictures?” The answer? Their sponsors.
A sponsor is a wealthy male, that typically falls into one of three categories: Larry, the hedge fund CEO ; Mohammed, the sheik: or Jamal, the basketball player. Sadly, the glitz and glamour of a sponserettes lifestyle comes with a price tag. Whether it’s being flown to Dubai by Mohammed to be shat on by him and his fellow sheiks, or flying to Vegas with Larry the CEO, these women are being paid for pussy. These sponsorettes are glorified prostitutes with malnourished brains and nothing to offer but two holes and a large derrière. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with having a sugar daddy, as it’s beneficial to both parties. But all of a sudden, there is a surge of women with small waists and disproportionate butts that have 50k + followers on Instagram, with booking info in their bios. Booking what? Pussy. The problem here is, is that these sponsorettes put on a facade that they are signed models, fitness chicks, bartenders, real estate agents, marketing executives, or some obscure form of employment. Don’t models have agents? Don’t fitness chicks actually work out? How does a weekend bartending gig finance private jets? Don’t real estate agents and marketing executives actually work, not lay under a cabana on a different island every week? They might as well start putting their rates in their bios as well, because they won’t be fooling anyone much longer.”
“We think that because this generation has Facebook, Twitter, and mobile phones, they don’t have attention spans. But it’s clear from the studies that we never really had the attention spans the classroom-based lecture model expects of students. Especially with dense subject matter, humans can pay attention for 10 to 15 minutes before they zone out. You zone back in for eight or nine minutes, then you zone out again. The zoning in gets shorter; the zoning out gets longer. By the end of the hour you might have picked up 30% of the material—or you might be lost altogether.”
“He considered his new life among the Scythians better than his old life among the Romans, and the reasons he gave were as follows: “After war the Scythians live in inactivity, enjoying what they have got, and not at all, or very little, harassed. The Romans, on the other hand, are in the first place very liable to perish in war, as they have to rest their hopes of safety on others, and are not allowed, on account of their tyrants to use arms. And those who use them are injured by the cowardice of their generals, who cannot support the conduct of war. But the condition of the subjects in time of peace is far more grievous than the evils of war, for the exaction of the taxes is very severe, and unprincipled men inflict injuries on others, because the laws are practically not valid against all classes. A transgressor who belongs to the wealthy classes is not punished for his injustice, while a poor man, who does not understand business, undergoes the legal penalty, that is if he does not depart this life before the trial, so long is the course of lawsuits protracted, and so much money is expended on them. The climax of the misery is to have to pay in order to obtain justice. For no one will give a court to the injured man unless he pay a sum of money to the judge and the judge’s clerks.”
In reply to this attack on the Empire, I asked him to be good enough to listen with patience to the other side of the question. “The creators of the Roman republic,” I said, “who were wise and good men, in order to prevent things from being done at haphazard made one class of men guardians of the laws, and appointed another class to the profession of arms, who were to have no other object than to be always ready for battle, and to go forth to war without dread, as though to their ordinary exercise having by practice exhausted all their fear beforehand. Others again were assigned to attend to the cultivation of the ground, to support both themselves and those who fight in their defence, by contributing the military corn-supply…. To those who protect the interests of the litigants a sum of money is paid by the latter, just as a payment is made by the farmers to the soldiers. Is it not fair to support him who assists and requite him for his kindness? The support of the horse benefits the horseman…. Those who spend money on a suit and lose it in the end cannot fairly put it down to anything but the injustice of their case. And as to the long time spent on lawsuits, that is due to concern for justice, that judges may not fail in passing correct judgments, by having to give sentence offhand; it is better that they should reflect, and conclude the case more tardily, than that by judging in a hurry they should both injure man and transgress against the Deity, the institutor of justice…. The Romans treat their servants better than the king of the Scythians treats his subjects. They deal with them as fathers or teachers, admonishing them to abstain from evil and follow the lines of conduct whey they have esteemed honourable; they reprove them for their errors like their own children. They are not allowed, like the Scythians, to inflict death on them. They have numerous ways of conferring freedom; they can manumit not only during life, but also by their wills, and the testamentary wishes of a Roman in regard to his property are law.”
“Libertarians don’t understand human beings are governed far more by instincts than reason and that’s why they fail politically. Republican normies have very tribal instincts and a sense of in group loyalty. This is why liberals always view them as racist and bigots because they exclude people from their in group.
Notice how Donald Trump successfully sold an antiwar position to the Republican base where Ron Paul failed. He argued the Iraq War was bad for US. Ron Paul made abstract moral arguments against killing Muslims. To the Republican base Donald Trump sounds like one of them, a member of their in group. Ron Paul sounded like traitor and disloyal to the average Republican voter and that’s why he failed.”
“I love how Trump supporters are all convinced he is conning some other faction and that his true agenda is what *you* want”
“If you hold unpopular positions, that’s the only way you are going to win election. If you hold popular positions, you don’t need to worry about that.”
“Trump *is* the peace candidate. But he may not be able to prevail over the combined might of our vaunted “17” intelligence agencies, the Democrats, and the organized lügenpresse. They are going to attack, attack, attack. Look at the level of intensity they are bringing and Trump isn’t even president. WaPo, which wants in on the new power to determine who is and who is not ‘fake news’ reported that ‘Russian hackers’ had penetrated the American power grid.
Democrats and the lying media are balls to the wall here for war with Russia. Does nobody remember that Obama tried for war with Russia via an invasion of Syria that was in progress when Putin stepped in? Does no one remember that Nuland and her evil Jews and various Knepperish Strauss cronies have been making a war in Ukraine for the last year, which the media has sold to the American public CONSTANTLY as Russian aggression. We have troops right on Putin’s border and we moved tanks and troops into Germany just yesterday.
The people who run this country are totally evil – we are the most warlike nation that has ever existed as well as the inventors of total war. These people mean business.
To add to our troubles, our elites may need a World War. Hillary is in the news again – she was regularly sharing classified information with a non government agent, one of her Jewish friends that passed everything along to Russia, China, and Israel. Trump did not wish to prosecute, because he is to weak to take on the whole of Washington, D.C. Now he may have no choice. Everyone would go down if the Clinton Foundation were laid bare, including Obama. This is the end of the world as we’ve known it.”
“I am sick of hearing my genertion described as narcissistic, self-entitled, grown-up children who don’t understand the real world. News Flash! We work longer hours for less money than any other generation currently living. Did the concept of a full-time unpaid internship exist so strongly in any other generation? Well it’s standard fucking practice now! Maybe the reason we don’t find job satisfaction is because the jobs we work aren’t satisfying, and nobody else would work them except us because you don’t get paid. How is demanding honest pay for honest work self-entitlement?
Also, we do understand the real world. We understand that you have to work forty hours a week for free and complete a four year college degree in order to earn yourself an entry level minimum wage job. All of this must be achieved while still living at home with your parents because rent prices have risen hugely disproportionately compared to the amount a college graduate earns, meaning you have to stay at home and save until you’re almost thirty before you can afford to move out.
But sure, it’s all the “Millennials” fault. So says Generation Economic Collapse. Generation Austerity. Generation Brexit. Generation Trump.. These guys clearly never were self-entitled narcissists.”
“The bottom line is NOT that our generation is broken. It’s that we can’t afford, with either time or with money, to live to the social standard that existed in the past.”
“I don’t think I’ve met a millenial who thinks they can get something just “because they want it”, however what they are told throughout childhood is that hard work pays off; “do well in these exams if you want a good job and buy a house”, “get good grades if you don’t want to work at McDonald’s” etc. The problem is that for a multitude of reasons this isn’t the case and there is absolutely no interest in improving this, because despite the fact that millenials on average have higher levels of education, work more hours and earn less money, they don’t complain in a meaningful way (about important things). Until millenials start demanding more and voting etc. they will continue to be taken advantage of.”
“Maybe it’s because I grew up working class, but that is not the case for me or most of the people I know. We were told ‘study hard, work hard, education and good grades are your key to get on in life. Don’t stop studying’. Which was absolutely a great work ethic to be raised with. Knowledge is power, after all.
However, what our parents and teachers were NOT prepared for was for those of us who took their advice to heart and graduate university with a 2:1 or higher to graduate into an absolutely desolate economic climate.
We were told to get a good degree, as this would demonstrate to potential employers our level of intelligence, commitment and conscientiousness.
They were wrong.
Now, degrees won’t get you very far, unless by chance there comes an opening specific to your field of study which, is a rare chance that presents itself only to the few. Entry level jobs reject us on the grounds of being ‘overqualified’. This leaves us with retail and catering industry jobs, where, because of zero hour contracts, one full time job is split into three ‘casual’ jobs. This means that employers can get out of paying anything above minimum wage, or guaranteeing work hours when profits are down or having to give paid holiday. This means that a great deal of my generation struggles to meet end’s meet.
What used to be an expectation or perhaps even entitlement when my mother was my age -a car, a house, a marriage, affording to have children, a place on the career ladder- are now ‘big dreams’, aspirations for us.
Is it any wonder we are disillusioned?”
“The same people who say America is not a white country will blame whites for everything America did.”
“Heroes are just people who have run out of choices.”
“But I didn’t care. If I had something to study for, if I had a goal, however unreachable, the time spent chasing it might have some collateral productivity.”
“Well, could I pretend I just got back from a funeral? Maybe I’d get sympathy points.”
“That’s true. People sympathize with the mentally challenged.”
“There are eight rules of being a good reporter, Jake.
One. Don’t ever burn your sources. If you can’t protect your sources, no one will trust you. All scoops are based on the understanding that you will protect the person who gave you the information. That’s the alpha and omega of reporting. Your source is your friend, your lover, your wife, and your soul. Betray your source, and you betray yourself. If you don’t protect your source, you’re not a journalist. You’re not even a man.
Two. Finish a story as soon as possible. The life of news is short. Miss the chance, and the story is dead or the scoop is gone.
Three. Never believe anyone. People lie, police lie, even your fellow reporters lie. Assume that you are being lied to, and proceed with caution.
Four. Take any information you can get. People are good and bad. Information is not. Information is what it is, and it doesn’t matter who gives it to you or where you steal it. The quality, the truth of the information, is what’s important.
Five. Remember and persist. Stories that people forget come back to haunt them. What may seem like an insignificant case can later turn into a major story. Keep paying attention to an unfolding investigation, and see where it goes. Don’t let the constant flow of new news let you forget about the unfinished news.
Six. Triangulate your stories, especially if they aren’t an official announcement from the authorities. If you can verify information fromthree different sources, odds are good that the information is good.
Seve. Write everything in a reverse pyramid. Editors cut from the bottom up. The important stuff goes on top, the trivial details go to the bottom. If you want your story to make it to the final edition, make it easy to cut.
Eight. Never put your personal opinions into a story; let someone else do it for you. That’s why experts and commentators exist. Objectivity is a subjective thing.
And that’s it.”
