Just realized I don't know many of you all that well outside of your posting style.

We all know Joe Biden is ultimately going to win over Donald Trump, but isn’t it sad that those are the two options we have? Wouldn’t it be better, truly, if Barack Obama were to be elected President for a 3rd term? I think it would and I think everyone else here also knows that it would be the preferable option.
Thank you for being so reasonable, amicable, and understanding even though it took you four hours to find me. Again, I regret my actions immensely and this experience has been a wake-up call teaching me that you're always accountable for what you say on the Internet. Also, that everyone on this website is a whiny loser who will actually report posts to you guys, but only the posts of people who they don't like.
Many, many worse things have been said on this website, but because they were made by popular users, nothing becomes of them. In the future, you better believe I'm reading up on federal law and reporting ANYTHING that even slightly violates it. My takeaway from this day is that strict adherence to federal law while using the Internet is key, and any deviations from it will be swiftly sought out and punished.
I apologize for wasting your time and I hope you have a stress-free, calm drive back. Also I'm sorry for trying to shake your hand, forgot that we live in an era of fear.

Wow, I feel stupid. Goddamn Ian, you know I wasn't being serious. Talk about a wake-up call, guess I'm not allowed to shitpost here anymore.
THIS WAS A BAD JOKE guys
fucking psychos have to take everything I say like gospel, I mean one second I'm an irredeemable liar, next I have enough credence where a blatant joke post is taken seriously enough to be reported to the FBI? Make up your minds people
So dig this, okay? I’m living with my boyfriend and as you know I’m open to polygamy and such, so he pays for this discord trans girl Hazey to come over here. He paid this girl’s plane ticket to come here lmao. And he lets me do DXM for this spectacular event - wonderful, right?
Yeah, the airport experience was great. We went there to pick her up, and I was so light and breezy. It was great because I got to have this big epic airport adventure without actually having to get on a plane or go through security. It was a whole thing to find her, but eventually we found a meeting place. As she said she would, she was wearing a collar, and as he said he would, he attached a leash to said collar and held it while we walked away from the disney store. Yeah, get that quote button ready folks, I know that will be the takeaway here.
They only did that for like twenty seconds though. While she was on the leash, I sulked way back behind them, acted like I didn’t even know them.
So anyway the whole point of this was to have a little pet over so my boyfriend and I could both dom her (definitely my boyfriend’s idea, though - he’s the one who even knew this girl) but she gets in the car and we’re driving back to our place from Orlando, and she’s SO awkward and weird. Like on discord she was so bubbly and shit, get to real life and try to have a convo with her and it’s impossible
My boyfriend did some awkward dom stuff to her when we got back, like no fucking joke this bitch brought a ball gag and everything. But it got to a point where it was clear that no one was enjoying it, and now I’m stuck with her while there’s this big elephant in the room. That elephant is named “No One Is Enjoying This And The Whole Thing Was A Waste”.
Now usually, I like to call out elephants when I see them - I bring them up and everyone is generally appreciative for it. But this one I’m not calling out because they’ll just both deny it.
Other tidbits from the night include:
• Hazey brought over these hydroxyzine tablets and said they were “just like xanax” so I assumed benzos, she gives me a bunch and I’m excited, we take them and everyone but me falls asleep for like three hours. Turns out hydroxyzine is an antihistamine and the effect is akin to benadryl
• My boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend overdrew his account to buy some shit (she still had his card info somehow) and put him into overdraft, and so everything we bought to prep for this got slapped with an overdraft fee. The ex paid him back but the damage was done
• My CLICK button on my computer stopped working so even though we have wifi now, we literally cannot use the wifi to watch shows. We can’t even watch the good stuff I’ve downloaded to my laptop. All of this would be fixed with a mouse, but we can’t get that until tomorrow
• Due to the above bullet, the only entertainment has been my DVD set of Avatar TLA, and actually this was kinda cool. That was the one cool thing.
But yeah, she’s an awkward introvert and my boyfriend is already a pretty quiet, introverted person himself, so it falls on me to be the entertainer pretty much. And that would be okay, but idk this would go a lot better with some alcohol.

I’m dating a guy and we used to live in a house his sister is trying to flip for a profit, so we had to be super careful and it was this precarious situation, but now he and I live in a place all our own! It has three rooms and two bathrooms and a kitchen. It’s amazing. Finally, no more living with my mom. Finally, someone who sees my appeal. Like yo guys! The polycule may be broken, maybe I’ll never be rich after all, but I’m dating a dude who sincerely thinks I’m hot and is providing for me while he works for his sister. It’s amazing and I’m loving every second of it.
Enough about the blog post, how has everyone around here been?

Yikes! Maybe learn to realize that some people actually LIKE me? I know you don’t, but yeah I have my supporters. Either wise up and accept this new Carmen era or get left in the past.
Trans topic: fuck dresses am I right? learn to dress like Britta Perry and you will be a happy girl
Oh yeah this thread is partially in response to this one that I made last night while wasted as hell, maybe learn that alcohol and drugs are the solution to your problems while you’re taking my lessons
4chan blocked my IP range so I’m posting the thread that I was going to post there here

It’s now been proven that roughly 87% of those who voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 Presidential Election have enlarged brain stems. The Chicago Institute of Medicine tested 1,203 volunteers, all of whom voted for the President. The Institute gave these participants CAT scans and found that 87% had brain stem sizes disproportional to the size of their entire brain - a phenomenon some are calling “Trump Brained”. The noticeable results of this condition, according to the Institute, include a higher level of concentration and focus, better reading comprehension, and a more acute sense of phonics.
this is fucking insane, he’s 1000% going to get reelected now

Digital Zesty knows exactly what he's doing. He's undergoing a systematic effort to change this website and make Sep7agon more like the rest of the world.
Now, don't be shy!
Step right up, I'm a reasonable guy.
Don't be frightened by the look in my eye-
I'm just your average evil meteor from outta the sky!
Well, I'm just shy and scared in this place
I'm just a fish outta water from outer space
You can see that the trip has left me tired and drained
So why don't you be a pal...
And bring me some brains?!
Go down to your neighbor's place,
See the dull expression on his face!
You’d be doing him a favor if you brought him to me
He aint using his brain - he's just watching TV!
Go down to Mr. McGee's
He hasn't had a thought since '43.
His brain is the portrait of atrophy!
He ain't using it, why not give it to me?
Brains, brains, I won't lie!
I'll eat their brains 'til they're zombified
Sure they might think it's deranged
But they won't give it a thought,
After I've eaten their brain!
Brains, brains, it’s okay!
It's not a matter if it isn't gray,
And if at first they it's strange,
they won't think twice
If they don't have a brain!
Go down to the Wonton shop,
My fortune cookie says that I just can't stop
I'll suck the noodle right out of their heads
And half an hour later, I'm hungry again!
Creep into the donut stop
Sneak in, tip-toe past the cop.
Pick me up a cruller and a cupful of tea.
And any other sweetbreads you happen to see.
Brains, BRAINS! I won't lie!
I'll eat their brains 'til they're zombified!
Sure they might think it's deranged
But they won't give it a thought
After I've eaten they're brain.
Brains, brains, it’s okay!
It's not a matter if it isn't gray,
And if at first they thinks it's strange,
they won't think twice
If they don't have a brain!
Brains, brains, I love em, I need em!
My stomach jumps for joy when I eat em!
Big ones, fat ones, short ones, tall ones,
They're so delectable, especially the small ones.
No time to cook em in a skillet.
My belly's rumblin', I got a need to fill it.
I don't fry em, the heat will only shrink em,
I just grab myself a straw and I drink em!(ohhhhhhh...)
You've been swell to go around,
And bring me every single brain in town
But with all these brains, I can't help but think
That there isn't one left out there to drink?
Now fess up boy, come on, heck!
Is there someone that you're trying to protect?
Bring her down here to meet her end
And I promise I'll be your bestest friend!
Brains, brains, I can’t lie!
I'll eat her brains 'til she's zombified.
Sure she might think it's deranged
But she won't give it a thought
After I've eaten her brain
Brains, brains, it’s okay!
It's not a matter if it isn't gray,
And if at first she thinks it's strange,
she won't think twice.....
If she don't have a brain!
Bring me her brain.....
BRING ME HER BRAIN!!!
BRING ME HER BRAIN!!!!!

Popularity contests are lame, but I need to make at least four threads every day or Christopher Walken reclaims my soul, and I can’t think of anything else
So list seven users ITT or give me thread ideas / ideas on how to beat this curse. FYI, never watch Click while high or this will happen to you too
Top 3 Best:
Top 3 Worst:
• Mmmm Napalm
Don’t even need to shoot from the top up to hide my features either
The only makeup I’m wearing is mascara
Not as good as a certain noid for sure but hey, do you at least appreciate my modesty? I don’t think I’ve ever posted ass pics on a public forum and bragged about it before.

No wifi but we have unlimited data on his phone and he even leaves it for me while he’s at work. He’s a self admitted chaser who continually hits on me and thinks I’m really hot but he’s just delusional w/e
So question! Should I:
A) Watch more Totally Spies (episodes I have saved on my computer so I can hook up the HDMI and watch them on the TV)
B) Watch Better Call Saul on the phone (may be hard to follow in my state but still a fantastic piece of art)
C) Listen to sad songs like Teen Idle and lament over my failed 50/50 die roll at birth that would’ve changed everything
D) Listen to empowering songs like Without Me, continue to believe that my dick and my male brain are actually assets that have served me well in life, represent assertiveness and power, and something I should be proud of?
Please just take my recommendation and watch this fantastic show if you haven’t yet. But if that’s not enough, take a look at this video above. It excellently sums up what’s so great about this show, and I want to actually challenge Verbatim’s argument from his Evangelion review about themes in this post.
Baccano is a multi-faceted mystery/drama with plenty of comedic elements. It takes place in Prohibition-era America, in three timelines that ultimately connect to each other in plot relevance (1929, 1930, and 1931). It has a huge cast of interesting characters, some appearing in only one timeline, some appearing in two, and one set of characters, extremely important but essentially comic characters, who appear in all three. Despite how muddled this may sound, it never gets bogged down and you’re never at a lull where you’re asking “wait, who is this guy again”?
The characters make the show, in my opinion, but make no mistake - the plot of the show is one of the most well-crafted ones where you’re never confused, but always wanting more. The only time you might be scratching your head is at the end of the first episode, as, fair warning, it’s more of a “vignettes of things to come” situation that doesn’t make a whole lot of sense on first viewing except to the most eagle-eyed viewer. I always tell people that no, you can’t skip the first episode, as it expertly sets up the characters and the tone, but the first aspect of a concise, serialized story begins in the second episode.
The show is almost, almost like a “Pulp Fiction meets a mafia movie meets a supernatural horror story”, in a way. That’s just a simple comparison, though, and the show itself is unique and unlike anything you’ve probably seen.
This show makes me disagree with Verbatim’s idea that themes make a story. He said that without themes, without the tomato in the sandwich, a story is just bread. That may be the case with most stories, yes. That may be the case when a story is trying to illustrate a larger point or provide some larger reason for you to watch it - for Verbatim, he likes to walk away from a story with some takeaway he can apply to his life, to feel like his time wasn’t wasted.
I can understand that, but really, do you need a theme or lesson to have something to apply to your life? What about a “I relate to this character and the things they went through in this story remind me of things I’ve gone through in my own life”? What about “their arc and how they changed, and how they resolved the crisis they were in has given me new insight on how to combat my similar life situation”? I’m mainly speaking to Verbatim in this paragraph, because for most people, merely the promise of watching an incredible, high-quality show is its own reward. What I’m saying is that you don’t need a theme, or to be taught a lesson, to take something away from a show or film. The characters themselves can be what you take away.
Verbatim compared shows to a sandwich - the tomato being the themes/lessons, and the bread being the vehicle - the plot and characters - on which those lessons are served. Baccano, as I said, is unlike any show I’ve ever seen, and I think an exception can be made. Baccano is like an entree of tastiest potato chips you’ve ever tasted. Not some Lays bullshit - the genuine article, made by some renowned Southern cook and served to you in a fancy restaurant. Are they a sandwich, are they good for you? Not really. They’re still deep fried and covered in salt and seasonings and all that. They have no health food content (i.e. themes, lessons, deeper meaning), but goddamn they are delicious. Goddamn you will reach for one after the other, and they’ll be gone as fast as you can consume them. And while they didn’t do anything for you on a health food level, goddamn you’ll remember that dining experience, eating those chips, for a long, LONG time.
Baccano takes its characters and narrative very seriously, and everything is very consistent. But it also doesn’t pander to you pretending to be something it’s not. It’s definitely not an Evangelion or something like The Shining. If I had to reach and guess the overall themes of the show, they would be “morality, togetherness, and family”. The show goes out of its way to reward the characters who try to do the right thing, make the morally neutral ones reconsider their lives, and punish the outright monsters. There’s a sense of camaraderie in each episode, working together to defeat this darkness that looms over everything. And in the end of the show, there’s yes, a sense of familial love that these non-related characters have developed toward each other.
You will love the characters, that’s for sure. You’re connected with them and want to see them triumph over their foes almost immediately. Even the “villains” are endearing and charming (except for literally two who are meant to be Hate Sinks). Anyway, this isn’t really a show that even has themes, and the three I listed above are almost more like plot fixtures than themes. It’s not a pretentious show, even if it might seem that way initially. Just give it a chance and you’ll enjoy it - I promise, on the honor of Winona.
Did you save Niko like a loser with emotions or make the cruel hard difficult but ultimately far more moral option of defying the World Machine and saving the world?
Niko might be the only non-NPC in the game (aside from you and, arguably, the Author) but that doesn’t matter. As Niko said, Silver and Prototype existed outside the World Machine’s code when they saved you in the mines - the place that even the World Machine couldn’t see. That proves that every tamed robot and human NPC character in the game is a true AI, capable of advancing their knowledge based on preexisting knowledge, and thus able to gain sentience and sapience. That makes them just as real as Niko.
And thus even though Niko is a human and the NPCs are code, they’re living code, and it’s morally reprehensible to make them suffer in a cold sunless world to save the life of a single human being.
Thoughts? Did you even play the game? Yeah, you. I know who’s reading this.

There I said it
cards on the table I like these two members way too much. the only difference is that I’m in love with Sol (unrequited ofc) while I just have this great enjoyment and respect for Verbatim
Only on episode 3, but I can already tell I'm in this one for the long haul. It's hilarious and has gorgeous animation, but more than that, it has social messages and extrospection on a level that I haven't seen from a show in a long time. I don't know if this is a bad thing to say, but from Sanford & Son to Chris Rock, I've always found black comedy that exposes subtle forms of racism, the plight of black communities, and the broken unity of black people amongst themselves (internalized phobia of your own race included) extremely thought-provoking.
I love the tension between Robert and Ruckus, and though I haven't seen enough of the show to really elaborate, the checkers match between the two in episode 2 says it all. In short, the two of them are debating about Ruckus' borderline worship of the white race. Ruckus is a self-hating black man who is going on and on about how the white man "civilized" the black man, and how black people owe the white race, but only repay them by protesting and voting. Robert is at first befuddled by Ruckus (Ruckus says "king me" when it seems like the debate is going in his favor) but quickly recovers and puts Ruckus on his toes with his excellent wordplay and logical reasoning. This puts Ruckus in a state of mania and he goes off on a rant, just repeating the same shit he already said. The scene ends with Robert responding to that rant with a calm "Well, how about this: game, nigga." I love how the checkers match itself is a metaphor for the debate they're having, and it's not until Ruckus trips up on his own words and unwillingly cedes the debate to Robert that Robert wins the match itself. The "nigga" part from Robert is the icing on the cake - Robert reminding Ruckus that as much as he wants to be white, he is a black man. And that's not a bad thing.
That's the B-plot of the episode. The A-plot is about R Kelly's trial for sexual acts with a minor. The prosecutor, Tom Dubois, is a black man who's confident that the mountain of evidence against R Kelly will be enough to convict him. (Love that character btw, hope he shows up more. Perhaps one of the most moral and upstanding characters on the show so far). R Kelly's unnamed defense attorney is a white man (voiced by Adam West no less) who uses R Kelly's immense popularity, and an insistence that the white establishment is out to get R Kelly, to quickly swing the trial in his favor despite the evidence. The defense attorney also uses the fact that Dubois is married to a white woman as a way to discredit him and imply that he's part of the white establishment himself.
It very soon becomes clear that R Kelly is going to get off scot-free, and Dubois' BSOD monologue almost made me cry, but more just made me so disappointed and angry:
Dubois: Please, people! You saw the tape. The girl testified she was underage. Y-you're not allowed to do that to a little girl!!! We have a videotape!
Huey would be the "main character" of the show, a 10 year old boy who very adamantly despises what he sees as the white establishment and its privilege, and who is extremely proud of his own race. Huey is silent throughout the entire trial (his brother Riley by contrast loudly protesting for R Kelly to be freed throughout the episode). However, after Dubois more or less cedes the case to the defense, head flat on his desk, and just waiting for this to be over, Huey gets up from the audience and walks to the well of the courtroom. He delivers an excellent speech that made me appreciate his character so much more (up until now you weren't sure what side he was on):
Hey! What the hell is wrong with you people? Every famous nigga that gets arrested is not Nelson Mandela! Yes, the government conspires to put a lot of innocent black men in jail on fallacious charges! But R. Kelly is not one of those men!
I wish the episode ended with R Kelly going to jail, but the crowd just ignores Huey's speech and acquits him anyway. The ending narration from Huey / montage of what happened to everyone afterward, ties everything up in an extremely succinct way that cemented this episode as one of my favorite episodes of anything, ever:
Huey voiceover: I did battle with ignorance today, and ignorance won. I admit that I'm often vexed at the behavior of my own people. Yeah, vexed is a good word.
Like holy shit. I know it's a simple message, but it still resonated with me so much and changed my mood back to happy. I seriously recommend checking out this iconic show if you haven't seen it yet. I actually can't believe it's taken me so long myself.

He accused me of all SORTS of big dick bullshit in this thread, then when I get my ass online and respond to it, where the hell is this big man now? Is he OFFLINE? Nah, he has three whiny posts he’s been up to since then!
So I ask Nuko to please show himself! Let’s see if he’s under a log somewhere or if he wants to stand the fuck up! Does HRT for trans dudes come with a pair of balls? I don’t know if it does, let’s find out lmao
A simple bot that analyzes the most used words of each user and posts a sampled message, using that data, for every two hours that a user doesn’t post.
As the bot improves its sampling accuracy, it could lend itself to more convincing posts, eventually leading to a kind of symbiosis where we have a fully formed community of artificial personalities that respond to each other and create activity and ad revenue, even with this site devoid of input from real users.
What do we all think of this? Also I’m altruistically donating this idea to Cube.net without any request or demand of financial recompense. All I ask is a moderator position and a yearly site holiday in my honor.
