The Phillipines
Just because i've been away for a few days, somehow there is no thread about this... One news headline (paraphrased) 'ISIS captures city in Philipines!' Is rather click baity... But goes in to refer to the 'Most Catholic country in south east asia'.

This is what colonial/state oppression looks like. As far as anarchist are concerned they are one and the same, the state oppresses its own people, the colonial empire oppress other peoples. In China they have this lovely grey area...

Why is Terrorism the only time people feel a visceral response?
I noticed recently there was an incident where a man crashed his car into multiple people injuring many and killing someone. But because it was not terrorism, people did not seem motivated in the same manner against alcoholism as they would have if he were a terrorist. If he had indeed been from any Muslim country at all, and also under the influence of alcohol, one has to wonder if people would just automatically assume it was a terror plot.

American reporter arrested for asking questions to Trump HHS Secretary
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/10/business/media/reporter-arrested-tom-price.html

Freedom of the press is an integral part of the 1st amendment. Just wondering how rightwing media handled or ignored this story about Dan Heyman, the reporter that was arrested for asking persistent questions to Tom Price, HHS Secretary.

On how PPSC scoring does not encourage players to throw games
In our recent discussion (threadID=1432961), many mods and fellow pillars of the community claimed that when you have two Great Powers in a game that have between 12 and 16 supply centers, one of these Great Powers has a (D) points-incentive to throw the game. I disagreed and this puzzled my fellow users, but only Lethologica took the bait when I explained my position. Here it is again:

Juggernaut is actually a horrible alliance
Despite the fearmongering ive seen in Press games about Juggernauts over the past 5 years ive been here...I cant help but note its low rate of success and how its paranoia often benefits France or England most. Please share games where Juggernauts fail miserably. But also include ones which work out in a 2wd (if there even is such a situtation)

Is it Treason to sympathize with the Confederacy?
Shouldnt it be treason to sympathize with the Confederacy? We fought a war and defeated them. Hundreds of thousands died more than any war fought by America. For people who still wish the south had won- chant the south shall rise again or fly its flags isnt this treason?

Are there any otherkin on this site? I'm genuinely curious to understand this culture more. If you identify as something non-human, do you think you have a right to get the privileges that all humans deserve? Or do you believe you're in a separate category and thus have different standards and base rules to start off with?

@BladeRunners obviously play infection that game is fucking lit.
@Jamie it just means those hoes over There. There doesn't have an exact location tied to it. That way it can be used for any scenario. Like when I am on the playground playing infection and some kids say they got tagged because "They weren't trying".
I would say to my friends "God look at those THOTs.

Thanks for the explanation.

DD's comment remains snarky.
MajorMitchell (975 D)
19 May 17 UTC
I have no idea what "taking the L" means & I have a reasonably good knowledge of Australian slang. When I googled "taking the" the first five listed options were: ( taking the ) piss, next step, mickey, fifth & pill.....so taking the L doesn't even register as a common usage extension from "taking the"
When I put in "taking the L", the results were..(taking the) long way round, long way, lead, long way home & liberty.
If it's " taking the liberty " then the more commonly used form of that in "cockney" (English) slang is "taking a liberty", not " taking the liberty"
A slang phrase or expression might have limited, esoteric use amongst a particular group somewhere, eg a particularly juvenile part of the internet, but that's quite different from being "common usage"
Cockney slang has spread to a much wider range of users than just those who live in part of London through migration, film, TV and books and cartoons.
