True, even if that word is confined to fiction, I'd be fine with that, but then there are too many imbeciles who conflate fiction with reality, like calling drawn and rendered images child pornography, for example. Or even calling a character who is canonically 19 "underage" just because she's short. Also, in terms of this video:

    Is she defining "blackness" as a social caste, or is she promoting a "true" form of African American ethnicity, like some kind of black Nazi?
    Quite often the writer doesn't get to choose the article title.
    As the size of an explosion increases, the number of social situations it is incapable of solving approaches zero.

    Ah, that's fair enough, then. Isn't it the same thing as with light novels? Isn't that why the "sub" title of an LN is often more coherent than the Engrish of the main title?

    No, that's because the main title is in actual Engrish and the subtitle is translated from Japanese.

    But isn't that the Engrish title was not something that the author originally wanted? Rather, the subtitle was the intended title, while the Engrish one was done by the publisher. Heck, it's not even just Engrish. Wasn't Familia Myth the author-intended title for "Is it Wrong to Pick up Girls in a Dungeon"?

    Given that a Nintendo store was robbed, as well, is this an evil woman who lies or a stupid woman who doesn't know what she's doing? These rioters are not comparable to Hong Kong protesters; they are comparable to the Senkaku Island rioters: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012_C...demonstrations who vandalize American businesses (McDonald's) and German cars to apparently send a message to Japan. When actual, sane civil rights leaders come out and condemn you, you know you messed up: https://siouxcountyradio.com/news/20...embarrassing-1

    Welp, Trump admits he's refusing to fund the postal service to stop mail-in voting. During a pandemic.

    Are ya that scared of losing, big guy? I mean, we love the USPS across the aisle.

    El presidente is still sharting lines of adderal and European cold meds in response to biden making the smart VP pick. Whenever someone does something he doesn’t like but has no way to punish he always goes on a bender.

    I thought that you'd be happy. A quick Google search lists him as a self-professed communist, too.

    If you to are about to start going at it can I preemptively tell you both to quit it and save myself a bunch of annoyed reports hitting my email box tomorrow?

    Let's see... New Gallup poll suggests most Republicans and about 35% of Americans overall would refuse a Coronavirus vaccine if one were available. I can vouch for this; at least at my workplace, quite a few have voiced skepticism, including the belief that the vaccine will contain an RFID or other computer chip as a tracking device or Mark of the Beast.
    Also, the postal service seems to be taking more of a hit ahead of an election where up to 70% of votes are expected to be by mail. They're being forced to take out the mail sorting machines...

    I wonder why...

    Fuck, this is going to be bad.

    Yeah one of the boys at my work has verbalized a few times that he isn’t actually a huge fan of the fact that we are a priority listing for a potential vaccine. He isn’t up to secret chips that broadcast 5G or some of the other more boneheaded theories but talks a lot about not trusting first gen vaccines. He doesn’t like my response of “yeah but COVID is worse so when they load the needles I’ll be first in line.”

    I actually see where he is coming from to a certain extent because they are rushing this out the door a year or so after the start date when normally this process would take 3-10 years but with the black plague’s crack addicted little brother around, I’ll take 50% efficacy and an allergic reaction.

    That honestly depends on where the vaccine is being made. I wouldn't trust it from communist China, but most other countries that actually have the capability of developing a vaccine would be... acceptable, at least.

    Doesn’t China have some of the most advanced pharmaceutical tech in the world?

    Honestly, I can understand at least a little distrust of China, but really after potentially having created and having lost control of the virus, what could they intentionally do that would actually make things worse?

    Tracking nanochip? Sure, as long as the vaccine actually works

    Placebo vaccine? That would be terrible and likely cause infections to skyrocket again, but they have nothing to benefit from it and they'd trigger WW3 if they were discovered

    IDK

    It's okay, pretty sure LLL will rather die than using Chinese goods. People who leave their homeland for other places will hate their homeland, especially if they actually allow most to live better than before to make themselves seems superior.

    Anyway the oil leak over at Mauritius is horrible. That's how you destroy a country huh?

    Yeah. Last heard is the Japanese guy committing suicide and how it is an uphill task to clear the spill. It will doom the country which is dependent on the ocean.
