Weekend Links, April 10-11, 2021

Welcome to the Weekend Links for April 11-12, 2021.

We start with a strong showing over the Easter Long Weekend with 200+ comments. There was also a marked lowering of the vitriol in the comments section.

Nicely done peeps!

So this week we are going to aim for a mellow sort of vibe. Kinda.

For your listening pleasure. From the taverns of Tamriel to Thedas, from Azeroth to Westeros, enjoy!

Politics And Governance

A Polish Pastor throws local Gestapo agents out of his church!

Fictional Governance

Have you ever wondered what a far future galaxy spanning human civilization would look like? The Templin Institute attempts to answer this in long form video. Enjoy!

AusPol

We start with the ABC, which has changed its mind on the Christine Holgate mess. I’m pretty sure Albo brought this up first, and the PM took the baton from him and ran with it.

When this happened, it felt quite bipartisan. So watching the ABC change its mind suggests someone somewhere has made an assessment, the only question is who gets to be the fall guy (fall-person?).

  • You may not be a fan of them, but both Martin North and John Adams – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MvSGytY4EqQ – are fighting the good fight best they can, in my book.
  • This is from 2017 – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGt82RFfg3U – but I’m a fan of going back and looking at stuff. ” Understanding is not the same thing as excusing” – Yanis Varoufakis blows the lid on Europe’s hidden agenda. Because he hung out in Melbourne a bunch.
  • Karens talk about AusPol – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPTtdPnLgOQ – this week. You are unlikely to miss anything, but in case you were wondering what occupies tiny Karen (male and female) minds, this is the show for you. The answer is not a whole lot I care about, but hey ho and ymmv…

How Car Chase Scenes Have Evolved Over 100 Years

Because why not? And written in the stars was not particularly exciting this week.

World War III

What would it look like? Welcome to the wonderful world of Machinima. The below is a bloke called Flawless War Gamer, and created using the ArmA 3 engine with lots of Steam workshop assets.

Russian invasion of America / World War 3 Ep 2

4/5 Generation Warfare. Ohnoes…

Culture Wars

So I don’t agree with everything this bloke says. But a lot is spot on. Also, I’m seeing a sudden lull in the culture wars. Not sure its a good thing, because maybe this goes from cold civil war to hot.

Markets And Finance

We start with a UFO video. Why? Because these days markets be like that too. Sauce.

As always folks, have a good weekend, and let your comments invite debate and discussion. And some name calling 🙂

i was thinking of writing an article this week but i’m drawing so many blanks, just wanted the site to have some content before the new weekend links got posted

Peachy

I, for one, am grateful for your efforts with the links, T.

I am somewhat remorseful that we didn’t have other content this week. But also somewhat proud – it’s good to say that we only post when we have something to say… not just to pump out volume, if it means mountains of inane crap that delivers nothing novel for anyone.

Winning@Failing

MB definitely pumps out too much filler but the lack of even a single article here this week was pretty disappointing. Get that lazy dickhead stewie to do a weekly cypto round up post so you at least have some content. He had no problem gas bagging about it almost daily at the old joint, now he has a platform and he has gone quiet, slack bastard.

Stewie

Been sick as a dog all week and away next week, so you all get a pass from my TLDR brain explosions.

Peachy

Where did it itch?

Stewie

Right at the tip.

Chad thundercock

Hey stewie, I can so relate. I was attempting to reclaim my manhood that was stolen from me when I was circumcised, by attaching weights to my micropenis in an attempt to stretch a new foreskin over my bell end, sadly all I succeeded in doing was developing a staph infection that resulted in what remained of my shaft being removed.

Chadlette Micropenis – so good to hear from you, I was getting worried that you might have had better things to do than come and visit us! Lots of catch up reading for you!

Chad thundercock

Resorting to altering posts again huh?

You softcock, weak as piss accountant 😂😂😂

Stewie

Dued – please stop think about my cock.

Chad thundercock

Also, when are u gonna change that avatar? A pic of a young boy in his underwear does nothing to boost the masculine image you’re trying to portray 😂😂😂 You dirty, dirty old cuck!

While I feel honoured to know that I have my own personalised Troll, this sense of accomplishment is diminished by just how low grade a Troll you are.

Firstly jousting with you is not only plain boring, like you’re a dumb conversationalist with no real imagination, but it actually sort of leaves me feeling sorry for you.

With Mig you got plane insanity, with w@ffle an underlying sense of malice, but with you… dude you’ve got all the presence of a bare ankled wanker in a trenchcoat, furiously masturbating at the sight of the object of his desires – in this case me.

Fuck you’re soft stewie. Stop editing posts. Either let them stand or delete them. It looks ridiculous and degrades this place (probably even more than whatever that dickhead posted).

Stewie

..and how many of yours have I edited you useless blood clot?

I only have two rules which Chadlette manages to violate one or the other or both with nearly every comment he makes:

i) Don’t trivialise rape or sexual abuse by using it as an insult; and
ii) Don’t insult my wife.

As to what you think about it bringing down the place or looking ridiculous – IDGAF.

Winning@Failing

Why can you insult anyone you want but no one can insult your wife? Is she a saint or something?
I don’t get it man, this is the internet, we don’t know your wife so why get triggered so much? Seriously, who fuckin cares who your wife is or what some rando on the internet says about her.

Editing posts is fuckin cringe. Makes this place out to be a fuckin joke. Thought you were too busy to write a post yet you’ve spent all this time editing posts, responding to trolling and being a dick. Stop being a lazy fuckwit and put all that energy into writing a weekly crypto roundup post, this place will never take off if you don’t start producing content.

Chad Thundercock

Dickhead? Fuck off u gimp

Winning@Failing

You and stewie deserve each other lol

Chinese Astroturfer

I’m glad I trusted my own instincts and scepticism when it came to this vaccine rushed through for emergency use than the so called experts.

A lot of people that were telling us to shut up, you’ll get your jab and you’ll like it have egg on their face today.

Coming

I believe it was just last weekend I was pointing out the irrefutable statistical data that the vaccine is more dangerous than the virus

and now it’s been acknowledged by world governments

how long until the rest of this farce falls apart

Chinese Astroturfer

They’ve gone so far down this one COVID death is too many COVID deaths route now that they can’t open up unless there is a vaccine. The Oxford one is practically useless without maintaining social distancing and other restrictions indefinitely.

Winning@Failing

Remember when you were posting about miasmic clouds of covid drifting from city to city?

I memba. Fuckin idiot lol

stagmal

that was dr x so obv u remembered wrong

Winning@Failing

Yeah, just fact checked. Pretty sure they’re the same person though, said so much of the same ridiculous shit

stagmal

still beats being a covid pussy ass bitch like u

are you still holed up in your bunker walking around the room every day with your hands in plastic wrap spraying every surface with a bottle of spray n wipe

Winning@Failing

Meh, the virus is real. Dubbo is such a hole you don’t have to worry about because no one visits. How many bins you scab this week?

Gouda

Even those who want it can’t get it. Mate of mine (under 50, medico – category 1b) went to Exhibition centre in Victoria for his jab and got turned away.

stagmal

what about the pfizer one? is it smoke and mirrors too?

Coming

the US vaccines were a mixture of moderna and pfizer (J&J now starting)

The CDC numbers indicated vaccine mortality of around 16.7 per million

Which is in excess of the incidence of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis following the AZ vaccine (5 people per million)

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/safety/adverse-events.html

Which was enough to get the AZ vaccine stopped for young people

You can work out if the other ones are still a good idea too

stagmal

yep, no thanks. just give me covid thanks, we should have been holding mass covid spread festivals for young people back in march last year.

Winning@Failing

You easily could’ve travelled to Melbourne and more than likely got the virus just by bin scabbing like you do but you didn’t…. pussy

Journalism and the puntertariat are finally cottoning on to the emptiness / incompetence of the sco mo travelling circus.
Wonder how long it will take them to realise how fortunate we are to have competent and real leaders like Dan Andrews.
Thank God for federation. Without it we would be South Dakota minus the vaccine rollout.

every other political leader in the country.
I doubt there has been a better leader than Dan since Ben Chifley.

he can’t be serious can he ? 
the bloke who fucked up basically every single virus containment effort possible
while plunging Victoria into the most frightening fascist police state imaginable 
then fell down stairs at home and ended up in ICU 
the basil fucking fawlty of state premiers 
is better than Chifley

Nice. Now I can get that neck tattoo I always wanted without having to save up.

Has anyone here ever used any of this BNPL stuff? Heaps of folks at work use it and mostly for stupid stuff like game consoles, seems ridiculous. One fella uses it for car expenses which seems a bit more sensible (services, tyres, etc).

One fella uses it for car expenses which seems a bit more sensible (services, tyres, etc).”

Remember when people used to do that crazy thing called a budget? BNPL is just the same in reverse but paying for the privilege. Seems kind of stupid to me but we really are living in a clown world now days…

Winning@Failing

Layby always existed and was heavily used, then it got the EZKFA value adding treatment and now it adds to the clown world.

It’s very LNP/EZKFA like, you take a guaranteed fix fee system where the marks buy things they can’t afford, but they don’t get it until they pay and if they somehow can’t they get most of their money back minus the 10% deposit, nice and fair, the business still has a unit to sell to the next customer that can afford it and the mug doesn’t lose too much.

But value add that shit, have it now, pay later, get caught up in underestimating repayments (the mugs aren’t mugs by choice, they’re just mugs) and then get slammed with dishonour fees, the businesses get paid, they shift way more units and all of a sudden it’s the mug’s fault that they’re idiots that don’t understand the most basic of budgets – it’s your fault you’re poor and stupid, thanks LNP. Hate regulation all you want but we really need to protect the mugs from themselves, especially when all that fake productivity offshores the profits.

The great unwashed have never been good at budgeting and the lack of wage growth coupled with general stupidity of the unwashed like keeping up with the joneses will just keep adding to the clown world – it is the EZKFA way. At least now the Greensills of the world get to make money off idiots that spend more than they earn…..

End rant

been lurkin for a bit this is me checking out what’s doing with the comments

that was me testing last week!

not sure how secure all the data is on this site hence my not registering etc

Not secure ?

what are they going to do with it mate

Well. I’ve been doing that wrong.

Yeah me. I just want to hang out with some peeps for some light hearted Wildean banter, not get trolled by a cunt.

harry

Edit to be clear, it’s not reus who is the cunt.

Winning@Failing

Prepare to get trolled lol. It’s kinda what happens around here.

I hope you’re down with racism, virus denial and anti-semitism because it appears to be all the rage with the locals (complete pack of cunts if you ask me).

Whatever you do don’t read the forum posts, especially any by that Last of Moorookans tosser, just utter drivel. This place really is a dive but I’m such a sad shut in hypocrite I’ve got nothing bettter to do than hang out and hang shit here.

harry

Yeah I think you’re right.

Sigh.

Peachy

I hope you’re down with racism, virus denial and anti-semitism because it appears to be all the rage with the locals (complete pack of cunts if you ask me).

oh man up, princess! (Sorry if I midgendered you)

Your post is an almost perfect display of EZFKA unit conditioning and discourse sterilisation. Sterilisation to the point where even a mention of race, creed …or virus… is considered morally objectionable speech-crime.

If you read what’s actually been written, it has been a generally good faith discussion on all matters. Different cunts have taken different sides, for different reasons, which they have explained.

Winning@Failing

Lol yet on twitter you were saying to Mig you’re just waiting for them to run out of steam….

Peachy

there’s no denying that there was a bit of passion splashed early on. And blokes certainly did run out of the invective fervour, as T has marked:

There was also a marked lowering of the vitriol in the comments section.

so it’s good.

You don’t have to have spent much time with blokes to know that they can be quite edgy and aggressive initially, but once they’ve splashed their …passion…, they mellow right out.

I don’t recall anything that could be construed as anti-semitism.

I also don’t have a problem with what you perceive as Racism on this site. Stewie has backed up what he has said regarding IQ differences with evidence. From personal experience I believe IQ testing is a load of bs but each to their own.

Winning@Failing

Bahahahahahaha Stewie literally posted the words “I am an antisemite” and he’s proud of it and then ranted endlessly about fringe theories and bullshit.

It was ridiculous, he then went back a day later and and edited a bunch of his posts so obviously it was bad enough to need editing/removal of his bullshit.

Live in a fanatsy world all yas want but when you’re all constantly boasting about being based and casually dropping the term red pilled amongst all the other recycled chan speak and memes it pretty much shows what you’re on about and it isn’t good.

Onwards Christian soldiers lol (There you go stewie, not bagging out Christianty just praising you for your venerable Christ quest lol).

I toned down comments posted in the heat of the moment and removed some of the needless hyperbole to better reflect the accuracy of my true position.

What remains is an accurate reflection of both my position and the substance of the original conversation, and I stand by all the points and implications made as my truly held views.

Oh look how high and mighty you are, just two weeks ago leveling homophobic slurs at people. You’re no better than any other cunt here but at least you’ve got enough awareness to identify you’re a hypocrite.

Winning@Failing

You’re a faggot deal with it

DictatorDavid

Seems like that’s the best you’ve got. Calling me a faggot is water off a ducks back because I know I’m really not.

You’re a sad cunt incel who has insecurity around your own sexuality and that’s ok, we will accept you here.

A good read on the under appreciated contribution by the steppe people in shaping the world around us:

“Today nearly 50% of humans speak an Indo-European language. This owes to the explosive expansion of Yamnaya steppe pastoralists who lived 5,000 years ago. Their demographic impact is even more striking: if you were to pool living humans’ DNA, proportionally, one billion total Yamnaya descendants walk among us today. Reapportion our existing DNA into less hybrid blends and one in every eight humans is fully Yamnaya. A staggering three-quarters of us carry some portion of Yamnaya ancestry.”

Chad thundercock

Their DNA luckily didn’t make it to your family line…they’d be rolling in their graves if they saw their descendants become a weak as piss, limp wrist/dick, pencil pushing gimp such as yourself 😂

You read it! Cool – it was actually an interesting article and take on the steppe cultural roots and influence for practically all civilisations of note, being European, Subcontinental and East Asian.

Stewie

The founder of Black Lives Matter just bought a $1.4 million home near Malibu, where just 1.4% of people are black.

Nothing says #BlackLivesMatter like using BLM funds to move as far away from other black people as possible while living like a queen.

Big money to be had in fighting microscopic racism.

More fake racism attributed to evil white supremacists turns out to be the work of narcissistic low IQ race hustlers:

All of which would be amusing if the actual Hoax wasn’t treated as though it were real by the media and received 10 times the media coverage as the (inevitable) resultant reveal that it was an actual hoax, as per the Covington High school boys or Smollet cases being but two out of countless other examples:

When the EZFKA fund gets up and running, I hope some portion is dedicated to political donations – because as far as return on investment goes, this appears to outperform everything!

https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2021/apr/10/brisbane-company-paid-14bn-to-run-offshore-processing-on-nauru-despite-no-arrivals-since-2014

Contract awarded to Canstruct has been amended six times, escalating cost to taxpayers by more than 17,600%

Canstruct, a Brisbane-based company and Liberal party donor, won the contract by limited tender, meaning there was not an open and competitive process to secure the initial contract. The auditor general criticised the process, saying “it is not clear why the department could not have secured a replacement supplier using a more competitive procurement method”.

Winning@Failing

Game of mates, it’s ridiculous

Peachy

This is so. It is by far the best returning investment class.

the way that the figleaves of EZFKA have been arranged, though, you can’t be 100% in that investment. so you can’t just plough $10m into political donations and get $230m out in cash directly.

you need to maintain a facade of a business of some sort – so say invest $7m of the 10 to set up a “services” entity (or just buy land) and the remaining $3m into donations, in order to have a $100m “services contract” awarded (or the land compulsorily acquired for $100m or rezoned favourably).

it’s obviously less efficient for everyone (politico-friends only get $3m, investor only gets $100m), but that’s how it works.

Stewie

Tucker Carson has finally stated the obvious on national television:

https://www.mediamatters.org/fox-news/tucker-carlson-gives-passionate-defense-white-replacement-theory

Which has drawn predictable outrage from the usual suspects:

https://twitter.com/JGreenblattADL/status/1380528052061544455

Which would be ironic if not for their utter hypocrisy:

Peachy

I find the idea of institutions/organisations/ideas perpetuating themselves very interesting.

whether it’s states, religions, businesses, languages, cultures, classes whatever.

it’s sort of a meta-level problem that goes beyond the individual. And I suppose it goes to the nature of the institution itself.

for instance if we look at North America as just a whole bunch of people living and doing their thing, then – as long as everyone is left in peace – what should it matter who those people are or what they do, say tomorrow or in 50 years (eg Wiccan lesbians or keto marxists)…. but looking at it this way denies the existence of the USA (/Canada/Mexico) as an entity/institution. So if “the USA”(/Mexico/Canada) is to exist, you have to grapple with what it is (and what it must not be) and how you go about making sure it exists in the future. And for what (or against what undesirable outcome)?

It’s a huge overreach IMO. Don’t see how a melody can be considered “racist” when the song lyrics have been changed. Even Alvin and the Chipmunks did a cover. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SDIXcAFLxh0

Agree that Coon is an awful cheese. Even after the name change the guy driving this is still suing them for damages and not being consulted over what is clearly a commercial decision.
