I agree with what that guys is saying, but I think he needs to put more weight to the fact that to be an evangelical in the first place you have to be rather stupid. At least they have poor critical thinking skills and are very suggestible. These people really like being told what to think because they aren't capable of doing any sort of rational analysis of their own observations to draw their own conclusions.

It's been discovered that anteaters could get rabies. Kind of ruins a fantasy I had.

I asked for a job at Gilbert Gottfried's podcast minutes before he died. They said what time he died. I'm not sure if I could look up the time of my post. I accidently sent it as a post to the Facebook page instead of a PM, but attempted posts don't get posted. I guess they get reviewed. I imagine him reading it and sensing something's off with me, sending his heart into that deadly muscular dystrophy beat.

I offered him a document on a celebrity in return for a job. I feel like that's not normal and can induce muscular dystrophic palpitations.

Guy on phone in the library:
"It's quiet here. Peace and quiet"

Immediately followed by old guy talking to computer:
"C'mon you piece of shit!"

Sometimes I wonder.

And:




After people suggested the obvious (that maybe Kyle Rittenhouse should help the Ukrainians:

Why are people denying these are real images proving Kyle Rittenhouse returned to Kenosha with a gun after having his ass pummeled for being a degenerate ESFJ.
I knew it wasn't A or B but I thought resurrection of the body was in there, though maybe speaking of the entire body, like the church. But I knew when I saw dumb ass that it had to be that one cuz of the Balam story.

Kyle Rittenhouse's mom should have waited to drive him to Kenosha on Sat or Sun MORNING, AFTER the chaos. Given him a broom and some trashbags if he really wanted to help. I don't care what kind of laws are on the books, any reasonable parent shoulda been able to see that's not safe for spot to be there, especially a minor without fully developed cognitive reasoning abilities. Mom, can I go? "No!" Why not? "Cuz you might get shot!" I won't get hurt, I'll have my gun to protect me. "Double no! I don't want you shooting someone is the second reason you can stay home and help me around the house!"

Someone uses their debit at a gas station and had their account wiped out (hundreds of thousands apparently.) Some gas stations also seem to be behind the skimmer operations (not sure how they wouldn't catch onto it if someone catches on quickly.)

I didn't watch but from what I've read, you just have to report debit card theft/fraud quickly enough and you're protected??? With credit cards they tell you how long you have to report fraud and protection is more formal, but debit cards kind of seemed safe from what I read. I was never sure though.
