Re: Mass Shootings are impossible to prevent thread

Even if you take them at their word that they believe it's a mental health issue not a gun issue, Republicans still cut funding for all healthcare all the time so it seems fair to describe them objectively as being pro mass shooting The idea that this is a mental health issue is ridiculous. The pro...

Re: Mass Shootings are impossible to prevent thread

Isn't pistol enough to protect their home? I don't really understand why rifles are allowed in US. Because of the right to defend themselves against a tyrannical government from back in the day - guess the modern day application of this is that people shouldn't have tanks or stealth bombers confisc...

Re: US Politics Megathread

The location of the source is frankly irrelevant. The content of the source is what is of importance. There's obviously no need to make sure that the source created the content meeting scientific standards. A simple trust me bro is enough, if the content fits to my agenda.

Re: US Politics Megathread

In Roe v Wade they tried to use the 14th amendment to argue for a constitutional right to privacy, but if that is now struck down, what kind of law could you write that fixes this and doesn't need a supermajority?

Have you actually seen what you are referring to as a "right"? Why do you put right in quotation marks and proceed with sharing gory scare pictures? The right to murder does not exist. Hence "right." They are not scare pictures. These are scientific images that depict abortion v...

Re: Learning the French

Basic stuff would be: sending 4 CBD immediately on age up; steel traps on time; resource distribution suited to what you are trying to build and for any eventual age up. Also herding well and avoiding long walk times in general.
Ask a pro for more detailed stuff.

Re: A full game of Go with beginner-friendly commentary #2

Enjoyable read. Thank you for making the effort. Looking forward to seeing how this plays out, particularly if white can get a large territory in the centre-left without giving you too much.

Go is vastly superior to chess.

[mention]u11190[/mention] From my point of view, I agree with you. That is why I find the civ to be so rewarding. A win makes you work for it, you can't just rush all in like I did with haude, you have to shape your gameplay. But at the same time, when I win with France and it was a fairly matched ...

If you get your basic 3 build orders down to 10 seconds from pro time (I only got to this point when I was touching 1700 elo) and your follow up isn't completely rubbish you'll instantly win loads of games. When you play France, in most matchups what you do is a lot more about playing against your o...

Re: when does afternoon become evening

I'd say 5-5:30pm can be considered either late afternoon or early evening depending on the context As usual, I'm firmly with the ear on this one. It could be considered evening from when it gets dark. However I'd generally say around 5 p.m. with 3:30 being far too early. 6 p.m is also too late for ...

Re: European politics

One of the things in war that interests me is that it's harder than usual to know where the real truth lies due to the scale of propaganda. Russia sets the baseline. They show us what real lies look like. Probs North Korea tbh. The difficulty comes in how much to believe of the "good" sid...

I'm afraid if Russia managed to surround the majority of Ukraine troops in east, as Chinese media reported. They said Ukraine will have to surrender in 1-2 days, while I don't have clear evidence to deny these reports. It's sad that what Russia did to Ukraine exactly matches what Japan did to China...
