Philosophy, Religion & Society / Re: Jordan Peterson... thoughts?
« on: November 25, 2020, 03:27:28 PM »
I recall one of his kids was in some kind of situation that prompted him to get on antidepressants or something.  I guess he got hooked on it.  Understandable but very much against his brand.
Ι've paid attention to the Jordan Peterson saga. It's weirder than that.

One thing that may have caused him grief was his wife's trial with cancer, but I'm not sure if he was already taking benzos before that. But his daughter is batshit crazy, she got him and her mother too on some weird ass diet that consists of nothing but meat, salt and I guess some bread every now and then. She even released books like this one: https://www.amazon.com/Jordan-Mikhaila-Peterson-Depression-Transcripts/dp/946398061X

Yes, that's a real book with a real cover.

By the way, she married a weird Russian Stalin lover who believes he is possessed by a demon called Igor who now manages JP's brand (no, I am not making this up, plus he looks normal in comparison) and had a kid with him and then she almost immediately dumped him. I think it was around that time that JP ended up in the weird Moscow clinic in medically induced coma for some fucking reason. Then his daughter started dating Andrew Tate, who is basically a kickboxing champion/camgirl pimp/abuser who managed to get kicked from Big Brother (and is ALSO completely insane, just check his twitter: https://twitter.com/OfWudan). I guess he was too insane even for her because it didn't last very long, because eventually she got back to her slightly less insane husband, and then JP got out of the crank clinic. So all was well. Until they got COVID. I'm almost convinced Zizek hexxed him with some kind of ancient Slovenian curse.

This sounds like an orgy of poor decision making more than anything.

That book cover is... very weird. So many strange decisions.

Let the pardon orgy commence!

Hopefully Snowden will be among them.

I've got a live stream going waiting for it to start.  I've heard that Trump was supposed to be there but someone tested positive for covid but they won't say who.  Sort of odd since Trump would probably assume he's immune from covid.

Oh.  Well that makes Trump supporters seem completely reasonably and not at all batshit insane.

The exact location is a closely guarded secret.  But I am examining the Book of Abraham as translated by Joseph Smith for clues.

The Mormons have correctly predicted the existence of Bigfoot.  There should be a mention of an obelisk in there somewhere.

A missed opportunity by trump.

What he should have done is signed an executive order to direct the gsa to humor all senior citizens suffering from dementia and trump derangement syndrome to pretend that they won the election.
Would that executive order include Trump as one of the demented senior citizens pretending that they won?

Obviously.  That's an additional benefit that would allow him to pretend to be president.

It would have meant spending huge amounts of cash and risking national security but it's a small price to pay to own the libs.

He's transitioning to his next plan, pressuring the GOP to steal states for him. This plan is also failing pretty hard.

I'm kind of impressed. They're not even bending to just give him a few more votes to humor him.

Trump claims thst pfizer didnt release their vaccine before the election on purpose.

Tbh he might be right.

What would pfizer's motive be?

To piss off trump.

Also the vaccine still isn't actually released yet.

True I should have written announced, not released.
Their motive would be to get rid of trump. Basically everyone in europe hates trump. I can totally see them having the press release a little bit later just to stop trump from winning.
Riiiight.  Whereas back in the real world they are desperate to get to market first, as they have the most expensive product that has nightmare logistics (-70c!).  They need to get to market first, as all the alternatives are much cheaper and easier to transport.  If they don't get it out before the competition, why would anyone buy it?

Which is why they actually had their press conference early- they have not finished the final stage of the trial yet and there is no published research papers out.  If investors got even a hint they were delaying the release of anything for political reasons, they would sue the shit out  of them and the board would all end up replaced.

Aside from that Pfizer is American, not European.   ::)

I don't see what the issue with distribution is. They can repurpose that refrigerant to build a superconductor network.

This all kinda reminds me of 'Shopping Cart Morality'. Albeit sans the legal threat/potential fine bit.



This is one of the reasons I stay away from Walmart.  The people that shop there have no concept of doing anything with their carts when they're done with it.

Sometimes on windy days I like the watch the Walmart parking lot to see groups of carts gliding along the parking lot until they run into something.  It's almost beautiful in a way.

Michigan
At what point does this cross into illegal election interference treason?

I seriously doubt that Trump will be able to steal this state let alone the election.  But he may succeed in shifting the Overton Window on what the Republican party can do in an election.

They already have the electoral college on their side and soon it might be acceptable in their eyes to steal a state or 2 if things are close enough.

Something really weird is happening with the GOP in Michigan.  Why would these people agree to meet at all with Trump?  They should at least make him come to them.

I think you can get away with having no subscription.

The internet connection is a different story since all the games developers ship first and patch later.

Well, at least now we know how bullywrinkles is handicapped.


Though I am unsure if driving in his condition should be legal?
Are you saying that it shouldn't be legal for Bullwinkle's seeing eye dog to drive him around?
I'm just not sure the dog should be allowed to carry a gun.

Typical radical left opinion that allowed Trump to win.

Good god.  Here we go.  No shaking down people in the parking lot for cash.  No extortion.  And if smoke machine had his way then no gassing our families with smoke machines.

Welcome to Joe Biden's America.

Yep.  Learn from Martin Shkreli.

Extort the sick and dying with astronomical drug pricing, totally fine.  That's just capitalism.

Lie to your investors?  Well now we have a problem.  It was all well and good when he was screwing poor people for money.  But the rich, we won't stand for that.

This press conference is amazing.  There is a second lawyer now who is going into a word salad of Clinton Foundation, George Soros and something about software with backdoors.  I'm really having a difficult time following all these separate conspiracies.

Rudy Giuliani is having a press conference involving the election.

I'm not so sure I can take it seriously since this new venue just doesn't have the same gravitas as the parking lot of a landscaping business next to a sex shop.

https://www.politico.com/news/2020/11/18/trump-pennsylvania-election-lawsuit-437996

Trump is filing a lawsuit to declare himself the winner in Pennsylvania for... reasons.

There's a brightside to this nonsense.  If Trump believes he can steal the elections by running everything through the courts then he's less likely to consider other solutions to the stealing the election.

https://thehill.com/policy/healthcare/526324-north-dakota-records-worlds-highest-covid-19-mortality-rate

Quote
North Dakota’s coronavirus mortality rate is the highest of any U.S. state or country, according to an analysis of data from last week conducted by the Federation of American Scientists.

The analysis, first reported by HuffPost, shows that North Dakota has a rate of 18.2 deaths per 1 million people. South Dakota, meanwhile, has 17.4 deaths per million, the third-worst rate in the world. The states have a total population of under 2 million.

I don't blame Trump for the pandemic, but if he'd made wearing masks and social distancing a form of patriotism then maybe people in North and South Dakota wouldn't be dropping like flies.
On the other hand, is it really that big of a loss for the us?

What's your magic number for an acceptable loss?

Its not about the number, its about the place.

As in the Dakotas? As in is it really that big of a deal to have 35 people die in those two States in particular as opposed to in other States?

I doubt the Dakotas have a population that exceeds 35 people.

Trump fires his cybersecurity chief. 

This totally doesn't make him look like a giant baby.
