The poster is actually the co-founder and owner of boardgamegeek.com. It's likely he has, by far, the largest collection in existence. You can see a list of all or part of it here.
This is interesting but kind of shallow.
The entire Gospel of Mark has Jesus dishing out free healthcare to outsiders and outcasts. Any individual event, however, is not a nice pithy one-liner as presented here and some of them are half hidden in Markan sandwiches. Taken together they have significant allegorical meaning but that is not something that is easy to deploy as rhetoric.
These kind of effects are often ignored by fervently religious as they focus blindly on simple literal sayings rather than looking for the larger theological meaning. Often they are dishonest to the sources and focus only on the easy to regurgitate lines that support their ideology. Political evangelicals are the worst consumers of the bible.
Crossan's book, The Power of Parable really lays out some of this larger allegory stuff. It is abundantly clear that not only does the character Jesus tell parables, but in the gospel narratives he acts out larger parables like a ventriloquist dummy.

Are you not using Cloudflare? If not, do that. It's free and will solve your problem. They serve everything for you and cache it.
Edit: I would also recommend changing your origin IP once you get on cloudflare and keeping it a secret. Only share it with Cloudflare and don't make an obvious DNS record for it like origin.saudiarabiaisisis.com. Your site seems a likely target for a DDOS. If you do it right you are pretty much bulletproof, but 99% of people ignore this advice and do it wrong so their site goes down indefinitely and they throw their hands up (see: private torrent trackers)
Edit2: He appears to be setting up Cloudflare!
> No, ramen is expensive. Rice is fuckin cheap. Whole bag for $8, thats like 40 servings.
Man, I don't know how much ramen costs where you live. Here's 48 servings for $12.62 on Amazon. Not quite as cheap as rice, sure, but calling it "expensive" is ridiculous.
And for those that don't know Ars Technica and Reddit are owned by the same company - Conde Naste/Advanced Publications. So you have an employee from one company reporting on the CEO of her sister-company. That's one hell of a conflict of interest.
Oh, what do you know. That conflict's not disclosed in the article. (edit2) THAT IS INCORRECT! Thanks to /u/phenami. Squeezed literally in the middle of the 27th paragraph of the article, there is a disclosure that indeed verifies Advanced Publication is the parent company of both Reddit and Ars Technica. I can't believe I somehow missed it along with seemingly everybody else. Shocker. Journalistic integrity restored!

I'm too lazy to look up the source, but there was some study (that's perhaps adjusted for inflation since) that found in the US $75K/yr was the magic # where happiness and wealth seperated.

There is a fascinating set of books called the Futurica Trilogy that more or less predicted this very phenomenon, and the rise of reactionary Old Guards like Trump. It was written in 2004.
The central ideas are Attentionalism, that in the era of decentralized media the ability to grab and hold people's attention will be one of the most valuable resources there is, which will drive people towards attention grabbing rhetoric, content curation (hello reddit) and in-group signaling, and Mobilism, the notion that truth is becoming mediated through a more subjective, relational framework with our ideas of truth balkanizing as we no longer rely on a few moderated, centralized authorities telling us what's what and as our understanding of the major revelations of scientific and philosophical understanding of the 19th and 20th centuries increases and spreads.
I highly, highly recommend reading it. It's amazing to me to this day just how much they saw all this stuff coming.
In <em>The Crash of 2016</em> (2013), Thom Hartmann also covers the rough 80-year cycles between major economic / political crises.
In that book, he also dives deeply into the shady activity of ALEC, the far-right group writing "model legislation" for state legislatures. That was one of the first topics John Oliver covered.
I'm plugging his book for him because he probably wont do it himself. Battleground Pacific: A Marine Rifleman's Combat Odyssey in K/3/5.
I bought it on a whim after he did an AMA, and was super surprised. It's an incredible read and I HIGHLY recommend it. Can't say enough good things.
I am getting the same feeling I got during the begginings of the great Digg migration. The question is though, where would we all migrate too? Voat.co seems to have been the destination of /r/fatpeoplehate and other related "not nice" people. And hackernews is just programming but with a terrible web design and nothing amazing like RES to clean it up.
Well, no, VPNs are absolutely not a start toward anonymity. At most you'd make it look like your traffic is coming from one fixed address instead of another. If it's a shared VPN service, sure, your traffic might be mixed in with other people's traffic. However, there are far more unique identifiers that identify you than just your address. See EFF's Panopticlick to see just how unique you are, even when using a VPN.
What a VPN is good for is encrypting your data when it's in transit between your computer and your VPN provider. This makes it great for securing your data on a public WiFi network or from people who may otherwise be snooping on your Internet traffic (read over-reaching governments or American ISPs).
Securing your data in transit != anonymity. There is a very important distinction. One implies your data can't be read if observed, the other implies one can't tell that it's you doing something.
Edit: If you need anonymity, I'd look into using something like Tails. It's actually designed to help you be anonymous, unlike VPNs.
> Reddit seems like a great example of a company that happened to strike gold but has no real understanding of what makes it work.
I don't think this is the right way to phrase how Reddit is. To imply that they struck gold would indicate that they've found something valuable. Instead, what they've found is something popular, which in reality already existed as someone else's idea.
The company that found this idea could not figure out how to monetize it, and attempts to do so resulted in alienating the userbase, so they defected to the alternative, which is this. The fact is, the alternative has also failed to monetize it's userbase and has also began to alienate it's users while working on that problem.
So the real question is, what's going to come first: a functional monetization schema that is revenue positive for Reddit, or Reddit V.4, thus leading to another mass-defection and rise of another alternative that will have to start trying to solve this problem yet again.
Just going to provide some background info because I enjoyed watching Ping Pong a lot.
Ping Pong is a very recent anime based on a manga from the 90s. Basically, a coming to age story with ping pong as a common thread. The series is geared towards older audiences and features some outstanding animation and music. While some people don't care for the style, it is still technically impressive and a welcome change from typical anime moe. The music and sound effects are also excellent with a lot of attention paid to small things like ball ricochets as well as larger things like proper Mandarin spoken.
The director is Masaasa Yuasa, who has done a lot of unique series like Kaiba and Tatami Galaxy, but you probably saw his latest work as the director of the Food Chain episode of Adventure Time.
Kensuke Ushio also did the music for Space Dandy, an anime that has its second season starting soon on Cartoon Network.
You can watch Ping Pong via Funimation.
Edit: Fixed link. Thanks!
At their core they were a self-defense organization for a community that was not served by society's institutions. They served as monitors against police abuse and provided legal defense to people who would otherwise be steamrolled by the system.
Ultimately they were massacred by the police. No-knock raid that ended in shooting deaths of unarmed, sleeping, or bedridden members.
I'm not trying to whitewash them - they don't have a spotless record, but they're not the scary monsters people make them out to be. If you're interested, Beyond Bullets was a pretty good read. But it's been over a decade since I read it so I can't guarantee that I was a critical enough reader at the time to know if I was getting 'boozled.
Doesn't have to be a intelligence agency. there's entire websites dedicated to giving people easy access to internet connected cameras, as well as other IoT devices.
I am not a libertarian, but I would suggest you buy these two books instead of watching videos online or reading Wikipedia articles:
Capitalism and Freedom by Milton Friedman
Anarchy, State and Utopia by Robert Nozick
They'll both give you a good understanding of "libertarian" ideas. Many of the arguments made will be subtle in nature and are not always obvious. Use them as a way to challenge yourself and your ideas and maybe it will lead to more interest.
I can't believe you would discard a 24-step formula so quickly. What girl wouldn't dream of a guy who requires that level of careful cultivation before they've even gone on a date?
You can tame a feral cat in 14 steps.
No. See my comment elsewhere in this thread. It all comes down to Ohm's law, V = I * R. The human body has fairly high resistance. Dry skin has a resistance of say 1000 Ohm. Connect yourself across a 12 V source, and you get about 0.012 A (12 mA). Enough to tingle a little maybe, but not enough to hurt. The power dissipated would be I*V = I^2 * R = V^2 / R, or about 0.144 W. Not very much power at all.
Now connect your watch across 12 V. I can't look up the resistance of a watch, but it's certainly less than 0.1 Ohm. Using the same math as above, that would result in 1440 W of power (as heat) generated in the watch. Things get worse if the resistance is lower.
At some point, the current of the battery is limited by its internal resistance. Even in cold weather, this battery can produce 775 A of current at 10 V. That's 7750 W of power! By way of reference, a 20 A, 120 V circuit in your house can produce only 2400 W of power. So if you're extremely unlucky, and the resistance of your jewelry is properly impedance matched to the car battery, the amount of power dissipated as heat in the jewelry can be extremely large. Will it melt? Dunno; there's certainly enough power to heat the watch hot enough to melt the skin off your arm though. Does that count?
tl;dr: Don't wear jewelry working on car electrical systems.
Not only that, but Jonas Nilsson, the narrator and producer of that "documentary" is a well-known alt-right lunatic and author of Anarcho-Fascism: Nature Reborn.
You express your thoughts eloquently, and you engage readers. You're a natural. Pick up Stephen King's On Writing, and start answering questions.

For point of reference Forbes started blocking ads at the start of March, so after a short bump their site started tanking, but they were already heading downwards.
Wired started blocking adds in February, but they were already tanking from their November peak, so it's hard to say that adblock user blocking had any direct effect.
Fortune started blocking adblockers in December, but they were also already seeing the start of a decline when they did that.
I had the same concern so I looked into it myself and found out that even though Opera is now Chinese they use VPN services from a company called SurfEasy which is Canadian.
For what it's worth I think Opera is doing a lot of great things to get some market share back and providing a VPN with malicious intent would do them no favours.
r/suicidewatch can pretty much be summed up in its entirety, because every single post elicits nearly the same array of responses from different people.
A. People who tell the poster that its not too late and give other general sentimental messages
B. People with experience of suicidal thoughts who argue based on their experience that its not too late.
C. People with experience and who are still considering suicide relating to the poster's feelings point blank.
D. People with or without experience offering philosophical advice in an attempt to appeal to the posters reason.
E. People with or without experience advising the poster to seek professional help.
F. People with or without experience advising the poster to engage themselves in some specific activity, be it exercise, socialization, or some other activity to relieve depression.
G. People with or without experience who ask the poster a question in an attempt to engage them in an extended conversation, or offer to talk with them.
The sad part is, even the entire spectrum of advice one can possibly offer is often not enough. How could that be? How could the efforts of tens, if not hundreds of people at a time, to help one individual, be ineffective? It is a mystery. Perhaps it is because none of us truly has any non-emotional, non-self-supported reason for living. Equally so, none of us has any non-emotional, non-self-supported reason for dying. Here we are, attempting to support another person, but no matter how much effort, it will fail if they are not, eventually, the one who comes to support themselves.
My experience of my own undergrad degree, Psychology, was that it as mostly fluff with a handful of good or useful classes. Books like "Thinking, Fast and Slow," taught me more about psychology than half of my entire undergrad classes put together.
My Family Therapy Master's program was thankfully a completely different story.

You're missing the forest for the trees, dude. Pick up a copy of Economix and give it a read - it's a really great little crash course on basic economics up to the mid 2010's. If I could find my copy, I'd ship it to you.
>Congrats on the textbook definition of a strawman argument. I never used that term and yet you dedicate a whole paragraph arguing against it as if I said it.
You are using, nearly word for word, one of the most common templates for the bootstraps metaphor as used by conservatives. It's not a straw man.
>Why would there have to be an infinite supply in order for you to take a chance on it?
Because training costs money and time. If you're already in a precarious financial situation, taking on more debt is rarely a good idea, especially if the chance of that debt being worth it is mediocre.
Hi, Tax Accountant here. And /u/infinitetbr is semi-correct. You have to APPLY for financial hardship and receive a certificate. You can't just claim financial hardship, even if you are denied Medicare (which is a strategy I've never heard of). Also, healthcare coverage based on month to month. So you can receive a hardship waiver for either part or the whole year. And the application process has no scheduled processing time. So it's unknown if you applied today when you would get your certificate. And you can't submit a return without the cert#. The IRS agent at our CPE said you can put "Pending", but if you don't get the exemption you are then subject to the penalty. But, once again. YOU HAVE TO APPLY FOR FINANCIAL HARDSHIP. Link below with more info.
Finally, don't get me started on how big of a mess this is. It requires more reporting and more filing, and on individuals who can't afford a professional to do it for them. It's a fiasco. Healthcare reform is needed, but this is just an f'n mess and has probably made the situation worse, if not just more complicated.
Edit: /u/flux_capicitated has correctly noted that there is a difference between "Financial Hardship" and "Unaffordable Coverage." Unaffordable coverage can be claimed on your return with no prior certificate.
It's on fucking mashable. With an article that indicates that real journalism with asking questions to people and stuff was done: http://mashable.com/2015/01/13/nissan-reddit-ama/
examiner.com on the other hand: "Hopefully next time Nissan will be smart enough to think out their marketing strategy when it comes to Reddit AMA's in the feature and won't resort to lobbing easy questions there own way from accounts that blatantly point to PR stunt. Until then, Nissan's marketing team will have to endure the proverbial "egg on their face" as they attempt to sweep this whole mistake under the PR rug."
>To draw an analogy: a man's suffering is similar to the behavior of a gas. If a certain quantity of gas is pumped into an empty chamber, it will fill the chamber completely and evenly, no matter how big the chamber. Thus suffering completely fills the human soul and conscious mind, no matter whether the suffering is great or little. Therefore the "size" of human suffering is absolutely relative.”

This is better for looking at the list, its these two users on BGG:
> Martial law? Sending in federal agents does not mean martial law.
I mean, does it not?
"the law administered by military forces that is invoked by a government in an emergency when the civilian law enforcement agencies are unable to maintain public order and safety"
Okay, present yourself with the scenario: Your home country is deep in debt, your currency is worthless. Your government, whilst ostensibly a democracy, is under constant threat from TEH JEWISH FORCES OF EVIL. Your people are starving and hopeless. You know that if the filthy Allies force you into a position of seeking an 'honourable peace' the 'Third Reich' will be extinguished in Europe for ever and literally tens of millions of pure white Aryans deemed by the Jews to be subhuman will be usured and worked to death. You need to keep Germany supplied at all costs, and that requires free labor from undesirables.
At this point, a man brings you a report on some Jew who shot a German diplomat. Even if you're not racist (which Hitler was), would you scapegoat the Jews, destroy their shops, and put them in concentration camps? Well of course! After all, Hitler was a complex individual. Add to that, any food that does arrive in the area must, by the brutal logic of war, go to soldiers fighting the Allies first. None to feed the Jews!
Did racism play a part? of course it did. Did hitler consign millions of Jews to death out of racist hate? of coruse not. Thats a disgusting attack on a man in an impossible situation.
Also: 'completely callous to the loss of human life'. Yeah, no shit. He's fighting the most brutal war in history and at this time had ordered the incredibly destructive carpet bombing of england after seeing similar tactics used against his own people. His value of human life might just be a little warped at this point after seeing things like 'Dresden literally reduced to a cinder tonight' on documents every day for about 10 years.
Conclusion: Hitler did nothing wrong.
(because if you're gonna use troll logic to make highly dubious ethical conclusions, I'll do the same)
Yup, I'm trying to put it to good use right now, actually!

I'm talking about Richard Stanton, the one who is actually listed in all the news articles as one of the professional divers who performed the rescue, and who is in all the photos of the rescue team.
I think you're talking about Vern Unsworth, who is cited in all the news articles for his inflammatory comments, who is a retired insurance salesman and cave diver living in Thailand, and who had some involvement in getting the other British divers involved and providing information about the caves but who was not actually involved as a diver in the rescue operation.
Alternatively you could be referring to Narongsak Osatanakorn, who is part of the Thai authorities, who has also stated that the sub "was not practical for our mission". But there's a lot of room for interpretation in that comment (the sub was, after all, a backup option), and he was not the person most directly involved with the diving part of the operation so I would still give more weight to the divers.
I could be wrong though, but in that case I would appreciate a source.
SO NOT BESTOF-WORTHY
Unfortunately, when the Reddit GunNuts™ see a big long post with lots of links in it that they automatically assume that it's a "threadkiller" or "bestof."
This entire post is based on a flawed premise: that gun control is merely a "political position." It isn't. It's a public health issue. Therefore, the CDC is well within its mission to research gun violence and make policy recommendations. And the idea that the NRA isn't to blame for shaping public policy is just ludicrous and laughable on its face.
I know gun nuts don't like to hear the truth (or they like to redefine it Orwell-style), but a page full of biased pro-gun links is never going to change the fact that gun violence has become a raging public health crisis in this country, and that this is just a heavy-handed attempt by the NRA (via its Republican stooges in Congress) to quash any meaningful attempts to solve the problem.
I can explain it faster and more simple: No major manufacturer made a similar car, because the majority of the people do not want it. Tesla, with all the publicity they are getting, has sold 15,000 cars.
The price point of the cars puts it out of reach of most, the infrastructure is not in place to make it widespread, and the recent trend has been toward more affordable cars. These are the real reasons no one has tried to make a similar car. Once the cars become cheap to produce, charging stations are in place, and people are actually willing to buy it, then you will see every major manufacturer make them.
Please do not mistake my post as an attack against TESLA or electric cars in general. The last line in my post is: "Once the cars become cheap to produce, charging stations are in place, and people are actually willing to buy it, then you will see every major manufacturer make them." I believe EVENTUALLY all majors will make TESLA clones. Im simply answering the question as to why NOW no one else is.
Yep. It also contributes to the vicious cycle of partisan politics. The Internet has made it so easy to find people with similar views, it leads to folks becoming even more emotionally invested in those beliefs, to the point where it gets increasingly difficult to consider other points of view. That's why you and Grandma will laugh at each other WAY more than you'll consider each other's points. On top of the fact that we're all using memes to make fun of each other, you're already conditioned to support other folks who agree with you.
By the way, it's not just social media and human nature causing the problem. Google is making it worse too. Consider reading up on the concept of a filter bubble, and if it strikes your fancy, I just started reading a book I'm recommending to a lot of people called The Filter Bubble: How the New Personalized Web Is Changing What We Read and How We Think. Basically, when Google, Amazon, and other sites try to tailor search results and ads to what they already know you like and agree with, you become even less likely to be introduced to viewpoints outside of our own.
We can talk all day long about how partisan and segregated we are in today's global society, but in reality, it's the things that connect us that are feeding the problem.
I wouldn't be surprised if people on this site just don't flex any literary muscles and the pretty mediocre stuff seems pretty great due to lack of a good baseline comparison.

> Take a screwdriver and short between the three contacts.
Yeah but this shit will kill someone. If you're going to do it this way you need to explicitly make sure you have an insulated screwdriver, and even that isn't recommended. Ideally you want to drain it slowly using a capacitor discharge tool (which is basically a resister with alligator clips).
I do agree that it is possible to DIY this kind of thing, but I definitely recommend looking up how to do it right.
The similar logic apparently can be applied to browsers.
I run a few ad blockers and privacy add-ons on firefox (uBlock, Privacy Badger etc.). I see no ads and am protected very well against trackers. So well in fact that it creates a unique fingerprint that advertisers can track me with.
You can test it out on Cover Your Tracks which is run by the EFF. The results shows my browser is being tracked along the same lines as OP's post.
For everyone reading this, I highly recommend his book Red Notice, Bill Browder's memoir about his time investing in ex-soviet bloc countries and Russia. He goes into grim detail about Magnitsky and the corruption at every level of government in Russia.

/u/SymbolicFox might look into getting some shot blockers. My spouse has a crippling fear of needles, but these things help a ton.

You're being blind if you don't see more extreme pushback for Obama than for W.
How did the opposition party greet the incoming Obama administration?
Boehner: “We're going to do everything — and I mean everything we can do — to kill it, stop it, slow it down, whatever we can.”
McConnell: “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.”
"But whatabaout the Dems!?" I hear you screeching. Let's see. How did they respond to Bush's marquee foreign policy issue? They voted for it.
His social stance on things like same sex marriage? They largely sided with Bush during the term.
Real Democratic pushback during the W years was laughably non-existent, so please go peddle your garbage elsewhere.

I’m sure I’ll be downvoted in this environment for saying this, but there’s a big difference between the Nazi party who hunted and murdered millions of people and Trump and the people who voted for him. Your comment in this context is dramatic and really offensive.
edit: In case you all want to learn something more about the Nazi party and the buildup to what amounted to the Holocaust, I highly recommend that you read Erik Larson's book, In the Garden of Beasts. I think you'll gain a better sense of what the Nazi party was like building up to the war. Also -- if I'm not downvoted to oblivion, please remember that Kristallnacht's 80th anniversary is this week. If you are unfamiliar with Kristallnacht and what it meant to Nazi Germany, THIS is something I encourage you to learn about. It was one of the first outward attacks on the Jewish people by the country they lived in, called home for generations and only a generation ago, fought for in WWI.

This. If someone is fiscally conservative, they need to vote for the Democratic candidate as they have had the best economy between the two parties for the last 40 years.
Which U.S. Presidents have been the best and worst economic stewards for our nation, the business community, and the average American family? Which political party has demonstrated superior economic performance while serving in the White House? Which economic principles have led to each President’s success or failure? What have our elected officials and the voters learned from these results? Bulls, Bears, and the Ballot Box will examine these and many other questions. The answers will surprise you
I wouldn't worry about it. They have a thing called a honey sac meant to be used to store nectar temporarily. There use of it has little in common with the way people vomit.
For example, your friends probably wouldn't ever want you to vomit directly into their mouth.
There's been lots of research on this since 9/11.
In a society based on law, how do you stop someone before he/she commits a terrorist act? You need to apply the law equally without a "he looks fishy by his skin colour, arrest him!".
There are 3 stages to a terrorist act:
1) Radicalization: you selectively chose your source of news to agree on your bias. Plenty of websites you can find to confirm your narrative that democracy is bad, or that Democrates are sent by the devil.
2) Exploitation: pushing the radicals to the point of #3. Act. This can be done by a big brother, a clergy (priest/imam), an influencial person. ISIS was doing that. Looking for radicalized people and further pushing them, without ever telling them what to do.
3) Act. The radicalized person hears his call. The #2 influencial person said "WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING, THEY ARE KILLING OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS!". The radicalized now believes he is in the right to act and that doing harm is good. He plans, buys materials, finds a target, etc...
Trump is #2

Actually, this entry is classified as "unrated", the title on the main list has white bullet next to it.
That's why there is nothing on page that says true or false.
It was sometimes americans, but most were foreign kids wanting to cash in on your rage. I feel like you're purposely ignoring everything I've just said or purposely shifting goal posts. "Fake News" was one thing, now you're co-opting it to bastardize it like exactly what was being talked about in OP; or what was written about in NYT about conservatives starting to use the phrase to muddy everything. Not cool bro.
There's also a level of commitment. Robert Cialdini, one of the most prominent psychological researchers on persuasion, talks about this in his book Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion.
Human beings have a strong psychological need for commitment and consistency. If you can do something as simple as have them sign a statement agreeing with something, they're much more likely to stick to the statement later, even if they didn't really agree with strongly before. It's why gamblers will give horses even odds until they pick theirs. Once that happens, they suddenly become convinced their horse has better than average odds.
When you've not only publicly committed to something but pulled other people into it, it's really hard to back down from it.
The Bible - Invisible man made everything, gets mad easily and asks people to do stupid shit
The System of the World - How gravity works with astronomy
On the Origin of Species - Animals that are best suited to their environments are the ones that will reproduce.
Gulliver's Travels - Dude lands in land of very tiny people, very big people, very stupid people, very smart people, etc.
The Age of Reason - Reason > Superstition
The Wealth of Nations - Supply and demand
The Art of War - A bunch of military rules that work in other aspects of life, like business.
The Prince - Rulers should do anything necessary to achieve their goals.
There are also websites that distribute VLC, like softpedia.
And there's also the VLC android app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.videolan.vlc&hl=en which is great for videos and music too.
When Borders went under I managed to score a brand new copy of this book for under $10 from my local one: https://www.amazon.com/Fat-Duck-Cookbook-Heston-Blumenthal/dp/160819020X
I'm similar with not buying physical books very often anymore, but I make the exception for large coffee table books with beautiful illustrations; I love my kindle but it still can't replace the beauty and fun of having some of those around for guests to flip through etc.
There's an amazing book called <em>Without Sanctuary: Lynching Photography in America</em> that documents the culture surrounding lynching. Along with photographic evidence, it includes images of the variety of lynching memorabilia and souvenirs that made their way across the US. Be forewarned, it's somewhat graphic. One of the images that stuck with me was a town square full of people (including children) posing with the corpse of a man who'd been lynched. The spectators were grinning ear-to-ear as they crowded in to get next to the body. I'm betting there's people in that crowd that are alive today.
I remember the creators did a lot of media interviews when the book was released, so if you Google it, you should be able to find plenty of informative materials and articles relating to the project, and you can visit their website here.
If you look at the list of oil breakeven prices you see those Arabian countries have budgeted assuming an oil price above $54 to $103 a barrel.
Venezuela budgeted for $151.

These people should be fired and blacklisted from journalism. This is outrageous.
Here is an article written by an academic that looks into the everyday life experience of fame. You answer your phone and it's Tom Hanks. Just one time when you are a bit impolite to somebody becomes a headline news story. The academic got access to clearly very famous celebs.
If you're interested in "come in handy" reddits, you might be interested in [/r/gonewild](/r/gonewild), [/r/adult](/r/adult), [/r/amateur](/r/amateur), [/r/AnythingGoesNSFW](/r/AnythingGoesNSFW), [/r/fetish](/r/fetish), or... there's too many to list.
This would just be easier to find something you're interested in. It's still a work in progress.
Commenting here for those who want more information on the Black Panthers, the really terrible bullshit that was COINTELPRO and how we learned about this I HIGHLY recommend the episode of Behind the Bastards podcast Behind the Bastards that killed the Black Panthers as an excellent, well sourced and easy to listen to podcast on the subject, and if you want even more depth, read Black Against Empire that was one of the primary sources of the podcast. It is truly utterly enraging.
I recommend the book God is Red. It does a great job of explaining the importance of place in Native American culture.
I think that people who immigrated or whose ancestors immigrated have a hard time understanding the important connection to environment felt by peoples who have had an intimate relationship with it for ~12,000 years—myself included.
It's more this idea that American kids (and adults) are super picky about food, but French kids will eat - or at least try - anything given to them. I don't know how much of that is due to the popularity of the book French Kids Eat Everything.
There is a fantastic paper here which sets out the differences in consumer behavior when it comes to signalling with luxury goods.
tl;dr: The richer you get, the more subtle you get.
Republicans have been pushing the idea that Nazi’s we’re liberals for over a decade now. https://www.amazon.com/Liberal-Fascism-American-Mussolini-Politics/dp/0767917189
The craziest part isn’t even that this book got written. It’s that the right wing in America today shuns the author for not supporting Trump enough. Its crazy how far removed they’ve become from reality, even in just the last decade.
That's not what that expression means. I get that you're trying to say is that the company completely "turned it's back on it's fan base", not that it made itself dizzy. What does being dizzy have to do with anything, anyway? The term you were looking for is doing a "180". A circle is divided into 360 degrees. If you turn 180 degrees (180=360/2) you are now facing in the exact opposite direction that you were. If you turn 360 degrees, you are in the exact same position that you started in.
If you need some help on geometry and basic orienteering, I'd recommend a Suunto compass. They're affordable and well-made. Cheers! https://www.amazon.com/SUUNTO-A-30-NH-USGS-Compass/dp/B000FEXZH6/ref=sr_1_8?keywords=compass+suunto&qid=1563478455&s=gateway&sr=8-8
I advise you to read Umberto Eco's essay ur-fascism. He lists 14 criteria that are common to fascism, and Trumpism ticks almost all of them. I'm not some hysteric who thinks everybody a bit right wing or disagrees with me is a fascist, Trump utilises the language, precepts and strategy of fascism on a daily basis.
The essay is better but here is a brief list: http://www.openculture.com/2016/11/umberto-eco-makes-a-list-of-the-14-common-features-of-fascism.html
At Rutgers, there was a similar professor that was famous in the mechanical engineering department for a similar pattern. The first day of class he said to us: "I have a bad reputation for having a very hard class, but it's very easy. 50% of the first exam will be on the stress-strain diagram for steel. You must memorize the stress-strain diagram. If you memorize it, the test will be very easy. Even though I say this now... I know that 50% of you will not listen. And then you will fail. And then, you will blame me, saying that I can not teach."
I thought he was great, but that's because I listened and studied what he told us to. Other people had complaints about how he "can't teach"
Back when I made my account reddit was a very different place. Most if not all the content was "real" discussions and link sharing with no or minimal deception. Now as you say, reddit is extremely popular and marketers have caught onto this fact. Most people don't quite appreciate or simply cannot appreciate the scale of how large reddit has become: http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/reddit.com There is a huge market of bored and probably fairly well off people on reddit to market their shit to. It's basically the same as facebook except it's done much more under the radar. At least on facebook it's pretty apparent when you are being marketed to. Unfortunately you are one of the minority who notice and question it on reddit and this will probably only get worse. Sure enough a new site will come along and for some time it will be the new hangout for people in your situation but like everything it will only be temporary until the marketers catch on. As for why I am still here I am not really sure.
Netflix and Amazon do for the VPN I use, Private Internet Access. There are some VPNs that advertise that they work with streaming services.
Basically how it works is when you use a VPN, you route your traffic through a particular server and end up using a shared IP address. Netflix figures out the IP addresses (based on traffic probably) and blocks them. The ones that work with Netflix change the IP addresses frequently enough that Netflix doesn't figure it out
(note: i'm very tired, so some of the above details may be wrong but you get the idea)
You know, I used to not give that much of a shit about 9gag's affinity for reposting shit because reposting is what make-a the world go round and all, until I came across this (scroll down to 9gag's mention). The fact that they were accepted into Y-Combinator and have received so much investment capital that could be going towards actual startups that deserve it is infuriating. Oh, and the founders quote, coupled with a screenshot of yet another reddit repost in that article is golden: "“No studio in LA can be as timely… with creating this kind of funny content,” one of 9GAG’s founders said in the company’s demo."
Edit: When this article was first posted, I made some comment about how none of their content is original and it got a bunch of likes and whatnot, and now it has magically disappeared. How bizarre!
Texan here. There was a large migration of Czechs to central Texas and now kolaches are everywhere.
If you're wondering, yes, kolache dough DOES contain more cream cheese and butter than flour.

You just reminded me of an awesome Starship Troopers game that no longer exists anywhere.

that game was so awesome.
Well you're in luck, you can order 3000 at a time very easily from this terrible looking site!
> It clearly states that if you sign a contract placing something in public domain then it is public domain.
And twitter doesn't require that.
Twitter requires you to give them the right to use the image royalty free, but you retain all other rights to your content.
If it was public domain, then they could just use it without asking anyone (but it isn't public domain).
As it stands, they had to ask either twitter or the creator in order to use it (and twitter would generally just say "ask the creator", which is why they didn't say that twitter gave them permission).
edit: my mistake. It was tumblr, not twitter. Same deal.
I feel like this is just a watered down version of these two articles by a guy who managed to land a $250 000 salary at Airbnb for his second engineering job without any formal college education.
Ten Rules for Negotiating a Job Offer
I commented this to him:
I would recommend you check out scuttlebutt, also known as SSB. It's very beta software right now, but it's basically a social network that works completely offline. You can write posts and reply to them all offline, and only sync to the rest of the world when you have internet. You can even sync between two or more people without Internet, by meeting up physically and syncing over a network not connected to the Internet.
Scuttlebutt is literally designed for your situation, by a guy in NZ with spotty internet. What do you think?
Mullvad is the least compromised to date.
There's also outline, but it's a little bit involved to set up.
You can also use TOR.
None of these offers actual anonymity. It's just slightly better than nothing. Not a condom at all.
If you want actual anonymity, you need to yeet out Google services from your android (by installing /e/ or Lineage or some other custom rom), stop using Google services completely, and use a good adblocker at the system level.
That, too, doesn't guarantee anonymity, but it's "something".
only one I can find is the one OP posted. Season 3 Episode 1 of "Xtreme Waterparks" - titled "Building the World's Tallest"
seems it's only online at amazon prime video, and not available now
Just to prove how easy it is to obtain uranium, you can literally buy it on amazon. It’s commonly sold for testing instruments.
What if we all decide on a date and then sue in our local small claims courts at the same time? Surely they couldn't fight all of us and there'd be a lot of default judgments, right? Is this legal?
Here's a book that's helpful. It'll give a good overview for anyone else that wants to start researching the specifics of the process. See if your local library has a copy, or find the info online.
Edit: Quick math: Even if 0.01% of people affected (1 in 10,000) participated, that'd still be 14,700 small claims suits filed in jurisdictions across the country on the same day. I feel like that'd be exceptionally difficult to fight.
Anyone down for it? Make a subreddit/Facebook group for a date a few months from today?
As others have mentioned in here, go watch <em>The China Hustle</em>.
