Waterfox is firefox with 'never remember history' defaulted and late security updates.

How is palemoon (or basilisk) 'cucked' and somehow waterfox not? palemoon runs great on low spec system that can't handle the latest firefox anymore.

Edit: and waterfox features BING, aka the dev gets money from microsoft, why else would he do this?

Brexit text 'agreed' in talks breakthrough [Leave doesn't really mean leave as it turns out, oh my, what a surprise] by Mnemonic in Europe

It's because the 'leading brexiteers' aren't coming up with their own draft about how things like the border dispute in Ireland should be handled.

It's been almost 2 years and the politicians of the pro-Brexit camp have all left the parliament while saying 'leave means leave' but never ever in that whole time come up with a Brexit-plan.

It's a bloody mess and a disgrace that these brexiteers are urging anything while doing completely bupkis. They can always blame May when things go wrong and that's their 'political agenda' so they can take the power when the ultimatum of the no-deal is reached and everyone is screwed over.

'Leave means leave' is not a draft, not even the beginning of a draft the finished 'deal' should at least be something akin to the declaration of independence, but 'leave means leave' is really all they've ever put out.

Look at this rant and realize I wrote this in 5 minutes, why can't the brexiteers come up with something more in almost 2 years? They 'already knew' what they wanted when it was referendum time, but somehow they forgot that, lost it or Hmmm never had a clue but they earn their money through this drama.

George Carlin --- Religion is Bullshit by RavAshi in atheism

[–]Mnemonic 1 insightful - 1 funny1 insightful - 0 funny2 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

*Institutionalized Religion.

He basically rants against the Church like Jesus did against the Temples.

It was a nice wake up call for America because their Churches are only bested in crazyness by a few extremist branches around the world. And I can see why he calls it religion in general because 'institutionalized religion' is too easily associated with the Churches and, like he says, they have a lot of money to sue.

Religion easily has the greatest bullshit story ever told.

This holds much truth as it's the telling part that should be gone. Also it figures he goes off on a rant more specifically towards the Sand-trilogy (aka the Abrahamitic religions) and leaves out the (for example) various Native American ones, Eastern ones and European ones before the Romans came with their weird version of the Christ.

For example most 'Gnostic' - branches (Christian-like or not) would have this rant hung like a declaration of independence in their (if they have one) worship area.

The main appeal of atheism is the Institutionalized Relgion's tendencies to dictate what's right/wrong from books and higher authorities (I don't mean God, because that's the book, but clergy people dictating) and enforce it through mob and/or governments. While funny enough even the most extreme 'truth enforcing' religions do have a saying/quote somewhere in their many texts about the dangers of books, texts, stories and the way they DO NOT relate to current events.

Pretty sure the Tor-browser out ranks them, but these are nice firefox replacements.

Palemoon is the one I go with when a page is too much of a hassle to access with blockers, it's besides your point also a tat faster than Firefox in my experience.

Or like clothes made of tiny ropes where the weave is lose enough to pry your finger through, and with a little rubbing the hole closes again (only this is on Nano level and the stretching out is impressive.

Though I nature something usually gets torn, shredded or cut (by thorns) instead of 'nicely' penetrated.

An 1861 illustrated Japanese book on the American revolutionary war [full scan] by Mnemonic in history

[–]Mnemonic[S] 1 insightful - 1 funny1 insightful - 0 funny2 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

I'm not all to familiar with this war and in what order it happened, but this one http://archive.wul.waseda.ac.jp/kosho/bunko11/bunko11_a0380/bunko11_a0380_0002/bunko11_a0380_0002_p0033.jpg looks like the tea party? or did something happen with the natives?(I can't find anything about the Natives being in the war)

Also, when thinking about Dragon Ball Z, think of the original somehow less annoying but very different voice acting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0_vHiABxIuM

DS9 is decent, maybe try an episode guide so you only watch the main arc. TOS is pretty meh, was so underwhelming watching it after having it hyped by all Trekkies as the best.

Well the 'The Library of America' has a great collection of his novels (including the complete V.A.L.I.S. trilogy), so it won't go down easily.

Then there is 'The Exegesis of Philip K Dick' which is a monster and such a cluster of all things (reading the V.A.L.I.S. trilogy beforehand is recommended) that I'm still busy with it because catching up on the references he casually mentions in his letters are big and hard texts. But a very good look into his mind and how the V.A.L.I.S. trilogy came to be.
