  1. trebek with the headshot! cancer has made him ruthless. https://www.reddit.com/r/WatchPeopleDieInside/comments/fx0qer/nerdy_people/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x
  2. All you can do is laugh at the absolutely stupidity, hypocrisy, and lack of self awareness. Fuck assholes who vote for this idiot.
  3. almost as bad as gdgd's 3rd and 4 play design.
  4. hmmmm, this is a great observation. The budget crunch is going to be a real bitch probably leading to wide changes in how and how many they teach and layoffs for faculty and administration.
  5. We saw Mack and Sally at Julio's in Hyde Park. My wife and I smiled and politely said Hi to them as they were sitting at their table and eating. Mack winked at my wife and ignored me. Mack cuckolded me, so I whipped out my penis and nutted on Sally. That last sentence may be fiction.
  6. If it were only the shitheads who are doing the deceit.... Almost half the country is ok with the deceit. I'd argue most fully support the effort to deceive. This country is a mess. It's because we the citizens allow it to happen. We get the government that we deserve. I wonder if this is what it was like in mid to late 1930s Germany. Hitler didn't rise to power in a vacuum. Germans either actively supported or allowed him to happen.
  7. Salesmen always reveal themselves. They can't help it.
  8. Countries and empires are destroyed from within. It's funny that the party who champions the Constitution are the ones destroying our democracy by taking a huge shit on the Constitution. It's the same way they treat the Bible.
  9. It'll be interesting how the history books will view this period. Maybe they'll call it the Age of Disinformation and Suppression. I cannot believe this is what has become of democracy as championed by the right. There's no fucking integrity. Guardian article explaining what's going on. Basically a conservative dude has a company which has established 1000 fake local websites championing conservative coverage. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/nov/19/locality-labs-fake-news-local-sites-newspapers Here's another article. https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2020/03/the-2020-disinformation-war/605530/ This is one of the biggest assholes leading the misinformation. https://mobile.twitter.com/btimpone https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brian_Timpone Brian Timpone is an American conservative businessman and former journalist who operates a network of procedurally generated news websites.[1] In November 2019, Columbia University's Tow Center for Digital Journalism identified over 450 websites linked to Timpone, all of which presented themselves as local news outlets.[2] Timpone is involved with a number of interconnected media companies, including Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which he co-founded,[3] as well as Metric Media, Franklin Archer, Locality Labs (formerly known as Journatic and LocalLabs), and Record Inc.[2] In a June 2012 episode of This American Life, Timpone disclosed that Journatic was outsourcing its writing to over 300 freelancers in several geographic areas outside of the United States, including the Philippines, Eastern Europe, Brazil, and Africa. Timpone described Journatic's content as "a mix of journalism and automatic". Journatic managed TribLocal, a hyperlocal news branch of the Chicago Tribune that targeted suburban neighborhoods around Chicago, in the spring of 2012.[4] Locality Labs published Hinsdale School News, a newspaper that masqueraded as the student publication of a high school in Hinsdale, Illinois by using the logo of Hinsdale Township High School District 86. In March 2019, the publication released a number of articles opposing a Hinsdale referendum that would increase the school district's budget by $140 million.[1] Officials from District 86 sent a cease and desist letter to Franklin Archer, LGIS, and other related companies, claiming that their publication of the Hinsdale School News was deceptive and violated trademark law.[5] Here's the other asshole. Brad Parscale https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brad_Parscale Here's a map of the network. https://github.com/MassMove/AttackVectors#local-journalism Summary of what they are doing. Here's a Reddit thread going into more specifics. I know Reddit is a bitch to read but it contains good information. level 5 mmeiser 36 points·16 hours ago Not a joke. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brian_Timpone more info https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fake_news_websites_in_the_United_States They are clearly now up to 600 sites. They "outsource" the writing to other countries and have already been busted in Illinois for pretending to be a student newspaper to among other things oppose a funding proposal for the school. They are plainly trying to weaponize fake news on a national scale to push a conservative agenda. Example list of "local" website in the MN. Replace the "dotty" with "." All of the sites have the same content and design. https://anokatimesdottycom https://dakotatimesdottycom https://easttwincitiesdottycom https://minnesotastatewiredottycom https://ncminnesotanewsdottycom https://nwminnesotanewsdottycom https://nwtwincitiesdottycom https://northhennepinnewsdottycom https://northramseynewsdottycom https://scminnesotanewsdottycom https://seminnesotanewsdottycom https://setwincitiesdottycom https://swminnesotatodaydottycom https://southhennepinnewsdottycom https://stcloudsundottycom https://stpaulreporterdottycom https://wcminnesotanewsdottycom https://westtwincitiesdottycom
  10. my guess. big 12 is going to play football in the fall endangering lives of fans congregating and catching CV. against their objections, UT is pressured into following. they are leaving because they don't want to shitshow to land at their feet. that or he likes southern cooking.
