  1. US Politics/Elections Thread

    I'm thinking about it from a policy perspective - you want to get the most utility out of every dollar spent. Allocating money towards those who were totally fine without it turns an already overly expensive program into something really massive without a proportional benefit in return.

    I guess I should've clarified what I meant by wealthy. The top quarter of American earners hold about a third of the outstanding student debt. This is the portion of the population I was referring to.

    I cannot understand the justification for debt forgiveness. Each person with college debt made the determination that the benefit of going to college outweighed the cost of the resulting debt and signed an agreement affirming this. All of the cost and interest information is readily available, not hidden in any real sense. Furthermore, a universal program like Bernies would pay the debt of a lot of wealthy college students who were already very capable of paying for it themselves. While I don't like Warren's proposal either, at least her's had caps. Bernie, on the other hand, seems to be playing the "who can promise the most free shit" game, which I don't think is smart in the upcoming election. College costs are a real problem and I'm glad to see it come to the forefront. Something needs to be done to curb the ever increasing costs which aren't even tethered to increasing education quality (rather, to administrative costs). Debt forgiveness as discussed so far shouldn't be a part of this discussion.

    Trump had to out promise Joe Biden, who also ridiculously promised to cure cancer the other day.
  5. The 'Halo' Thread

    I cannot believe we didn't get gameplay. We got a cutscene that takes place 3 years after Halo 5 with so little context that you can only guess what the fuck has gone on and is going on.

    The motivation is key here, I have no idea why you think it can be brushed aside. If you think more than a few outliers are attending a straight pride walk out of boredom then you aren't being intellectually honest here. Anyway, my answer is that a straight pride event is inherently hostile against gay people for the reasons listed above by myself and others and promotes an unwelcoming environment for those who are gay based on their sexual orientation, which is something our society should strive not to do.

    People like you? And the uniting factor is just being straight? Every day you spend in the outside world is your straight social gathering setting!! This post shows again why there is no good natured motivation for a straight pride event. Being straight is the default condition. To be actively proud of being straight is to simply be proud of not being gay.
  8. IGOR - Tyler the Creator

    Anyone else listening to this album? It's incredible. It's written, arranged, and produced entirely by him. There are a few rap verses spread around, but he said this wouldn't be a rap album and it's not. I don't know of another artist around the genre who has continued to improve his craft on each album like he has. To watch him grow from that kinda annoying skaterkid using shocklyrics in 2011 to a full fledged multi-instrumentalist artist has been really fun. He has such a good sense of melody. I wondered how he was gonna handle being gay in his lyrics after coming out on Flower Boy, and he just embraced it entirely on here. Thematically, its a breakup album about his secret gay lover who won't break up with his girlfriend and come out to be with Tyler. Super personal, where else are you gonna hear a perspective like that on an album? My only complaints are that, well, Tyler is not a good singer and he has always said this. He works around this by either using a bunch of effects (which sometimes come to sound a little too strange) or employing featured artists to sing his melodies, a couple of which are strange choices. also, he did an entire concert the other night in this outfit

    Her fatal flaw is that she chose to run in the lane occupied already by Sanders and Warren who have way more name recognition than she does.
  10. I'm sure Slash overdubbed in some sick fills for Rock the Rock.

    "According to the report, which cites notes taken by Jody Hunt, then-chief of staff to Mr. Sessions, when Mr. Mueller was appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in May 2017, Mr. Trump slumped back in his chair and told aides, “Oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my Presidency. I’m f---ed.” I'm a little surprised he was ever that afraid.

    Kindof ironic that in the end Trump got off the obstruction in a similar way to how Hillary got off with the emails.
  13. The Weed Thread

    Yeah no more bus weed for me my friend looked at what I had left of it and thinks it was K2 based on how soft it was. Who knows though. That shit came on so fast.
  14. The Weed Thread

    Found a vial of weed on the back of the bus yesterday. It looked like weed but had no smell at all and was strangely soft, like it had been wet or something. I'm aware that this is among the dumbest fucking things I've ever done, but I took it and smoked it when I got home. It only took one hit for me to know it was off, it tasted super harsh. Anyway, 5 mins later I'm laying in bed with my vision getting blurrier and blurrier, parts of my head in straight up pain, heart racing, general fuckedup feeling, disorientation, etc. The entire thing lasted like an hour, and for 20 mins of that, it was honestly agonizing just to exist. I was a little worried. I had to summon all my mental fortitude to get to the fridge and get a bottle of water, downed the whole thing and I started to come out of it. After that I was just regular high and went to sleep. I wonder what it was laced with.

    Based on policy, approach, and experience, but not electability, Warren is my favorite candidate. I wish Warren hadn't done the whole DNA Test thing. I think that killed her electability in an election vs Trump and voters sort of know it. Plus, her demographic isn't very popular - Americans really don't like the whole older-female-professor type.
