    Monday is Martin Luther King Junior Day. Considering what's been going on lately, what do you want to bet that Trump does or says something stupid and or offensive to commemorate it?

    Next question, could we create a drinking game from it?
    Madness does not always howl. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "Hey, is there room in your head for one more?"

    I is before E except after C, then it's chaos man, mass chaos! Letters coming together into words, but then you go English and they put U's in places that just shouldn't go there... AHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

    My sanity left town along time ago and didn't leave a forwarding address. It's not missed.

    That would require listening to the Orange Buffoon's blather, which is enough to induce vomiting anyhow and would thus be a waste of perfectly good alcohol.
    News I bring;
    Bells the stag, winter snow
    Summer is past
    Wind high and cold
    Low the sun, short its course
    Seas run strong;
    The russet bracken its shape is lost
    Wild goose raises wanton cry
    Cold lays hold on wings of bird
    Time of ice
    This I heard.

    True. But if you have a drinking problem anyway, it'd be a good method to kick it!

    You could make a drinking game out of how often he plays golf perhaps?

    The question for that would also be how many clubs does he break and how many holes in one he legitimately makes.

    He came to fame when he objected to laws in Canada to force people to use preferred pronouns.

    Have you seen the train-wreck of interview on Channel 4 where the interview constantly misrepresents his position.

    JP: I believe this as that's what the evidence supports.

    Interviewer: So you are saying all women are witches.

    JP: No that's not what I am saying at all.


    I'm paraphrasing a bit.

    This article describes Peterson and his rise to in/famy fairly well:

    What’s So Dangerous About Jordan Peterson?






    And this is a good article discussing the differences (in the view on Political Correctness) between egalitarian liberals and SJWs/authoritarian liberals:

    Probably not the right thread for this, but I thought it worth re-posting somewhere. And yes, it's horrible. And funny. But horrible. But funny.

    Funny enough I watched that interview today by coincidence before coming into work. The interviewer is so incredibly frustrating - I mean she is intelligent enough to know that she is misrepresenting his words which means it is so obviously purposefully done. Amazing patience by Dr Peterson.

    His accent makes me smile. It is a short run amusement as the interviewer couldn't be more...disingenuous....

    I'd have to see more of this interviewer's work, but she strikes me as having taken on the burden of arguing the Intersectional Feminist side without being one herself. Which is why all she can do is sadly repeat their talking points without being able to make the convoluted nonsense leaps in argument they make.

    In other words, yes, entirely disingenuous, but from the Devil's Advocate aspect not the 'hypocritical bitch' aspect.

    Yeah I get the sense she is tough as nails herself, fairly disagreeable in the same sense this guy is advocating women should be, and so while she is arguing "Why shouldn't men adopt more female traits so we don't have to do this" she's simultaneously thinking "If I can do it then why the fuck aren't other women doing it also - emulate me."
