[edit] On Christians and "Hitler 2"

[edit] Who's Been Putting Garbage in the WIGOs?

I just pulled two of the crankiest stories from WIGO News and WIGO Blogs and put them into the Clog section. I do not suspect they were from the same person, but what the hell? The one yanked from clogs was even about some weird end-times bullshit. BORT (talk) 04:02, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

I posted the Telegraph link because I thought it was interesting but I didn't realize it had anything to do with UKIP.--Owlman (talk) (mail) 04:05, 9 May 2016 (UTC) 04:05, 9 May 2016 (UTC)
It doesn't. It's implicitly leaning towards a pro-Brexit PoV, but what it says about the shortcomings of the claim system for agricultural subsidies appears to be valid. I certainly wouldn't call it "full-on, pants-on-head UKIP". As for the Sang Rael thing, it was a drive-by post by a B0N and looks like a standard green ink apocalyptic site.

I think we had another DBP with some weeping statue crap, which I relocated. My apologies to Owlman; it's not Kipper stuff, but it is Brexit stuff. BORT (talk) 03:29, 11 May 2016 (UTC)
No problem. I could tell it leaned toward Brexit but I thought that the claims were valid.--Owlman (talk) (mail) 03:35, 11 May 2016 (UTC) 03:35, 11 May 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Mike Adams

Wow. I just. Wow. What.

For a while, I thought Mike was just in it for the ad revenue and selling supplements and prepper gear to his reader base. But this is... just off the wall. ℕoir LeSable (talk) 18:59, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

He has a very marketable psychosis, and his followers likely have few places to turn for these far beyond pale of crazy beliefs, so he'll get money for being himself till it's unpopular IMHO. -EmeraldCityWanderer (talk) 19:09, 9 May 2016 (UTC)
whats odd about believing in demon infested humans running the CIA ? dont you guys watch SUPERNATURAL ? now hush or you will wake up the Bat of the endtimes. Hamster (talk) 01:37, 24 May 2016 (UTC)

[edit] He's onto me

My plan to drain all the power from the sun has been foiled. How did he know about the hidden flux pull-up inducers attached to each solar panel? I carefully hid each and every one as a regular old polycrystaline elements. Curse you David Wolfe! ikanreed You probably didn't deserve that 13:59, 10 May 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Blaze Marriage Article

I don't really agree with the article that much, but I'm not sure how it's transphobic. The only relevant line I can find is "It’s crazy. And I mean really crazy, especially now that we’ve started removing body parts in order to ensure that kids don’t spoil our chances of climbing into the next tax bracket." but I think it's fairly obvious from the context that the author is talking about egg preservation, not transfolk. It's still kind of a dumb thing to say, as well as a dumb article in general, but not sure if it's clog worthy. Hentropy (talk) 06:29, 17 May 2016 (UTC)

Wow, I didn't even realize the egg preservation thing. My bad. I was really pissed off when I posted and thought the content was chuckle worthy. Feel free to take it down.

[edit] Bristake

About the people who made a protest vote to Brexit before Brexit actually happened and now are really regretting their decision. Why do I get the feeling that we'll be seeing people saying similar things here about Trump? ℕoir LeSable (talk) 17:57, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

How did they make a protest vote? Weren't there only two options?--Owlman (talk) (mail) 18:00, 24 June 2016 (UTC) 18:00, 24 June 2016 (UTC)
They voted pro-brexit to "send a message". Castaigne-like thinking. ikanreed You probably didn't deserve that 18:12, 24 June 2016 (UTC)
Absolutely not! I believe in pragmatic voting only. "Sending a message" is idealism, and I frankly despise idealism in all its forms. --Castaigne2 (talk) 18:42, 24 June 2016 (UTC)
there seems to be little you dont despise. You must be fun at parties AMassiveGay (talk) 18:46, 24 June 2016 (UTC)
There is much in the way of media I like. Books, movies, music...right now I'm very much enjoying the collection and dissection of classic ghost stories in the tradition of M. R. James, but no one here has any interest in that at all. --Castaigne2 (talk) 18:48, 24 June 2016 (UTC)
@ikanreed Well, if they voted for Brexit then they must have agreed with it in part; the only thing I could imagine they would be "protesting" would be austerity, immigration, or trade deals. I mean, if I voted for Trump then I would have to believe that he would fix our trade deals, immigration policy, or economy.--Owlman (talk) (mail) 04:38, 25 June 2016 (UTC) 04:38, 25 June 2016 (UTC)
