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.

You have been funnied because my 'up-bulbed' is much, much more and also way cooler, but you made me giggle with the knowlegde that people think light-bulbs emit white light.

Edit: wait... I see, it's white in the icon... hmmm, still though... Mine's better :p

Ted Was Right, Wasn't He? by useless_aether in quotes

[–]Mnemonic 2 insightful - 2 funny2 insightful - 1 funny3 insightful - 2 funny -  (0 children)

because he doesn't state his personal views very often.

So all his crying (just search Jordan Peterson Crying) is staged? (His emotional outbursts are something he's famed and loved for IIRC, best known and made it into a lot of Kermit memes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IvBm0ZUfe7I)

Imagine if women quit wearing makeup to work, or all men started wearing makeup, etc. Makeup or not, the workplace social environment will be impacted.

Maybe a bad example because both cases have been happening for ages (In western society and still is). It wasn't that long ago that the elite men wore makeup (also, almost every man on TV wears make up 'because you have to look pretty in the unnatural light'). And pretty much only TV (or p*rn) brainwashed people think of make-up being 'natural' for women. (but maybe you mean mascara, that's a bit more general accepted {the eyes/brow stuff} as 'basic women stuff' though certain hair-colors (black and red) don't use it too often in the wild). But this can all be a culture difference

But more on topic and JP, the good part of him is his 'calling out' problems, excesses and whatever you call it. Though his solutions are founded in what Ted describes as the machine/system. So on the one hand he 'rebels' by calling out thing 'the status quo' misses/ignores or even endorses. But he himself so much system he can't really rebel so with long talks basically says to embrace the system (more specifically the system he grew up in and he has spun his tales around).

It's not perse a declassification of Jordan (I would happily believe and take it already as fact he's a good psychiatrist), but viewed in the Ted perspective he is this false rebellion. To put it blunt: Peterson does not take into account the tremendous and devastating 'Industry' and is fine with how society acts with it and sets people up (helps) them to integrate into this abomination of a system.

EDIT: did I already mention Ted was a bit of a radical fanatic? ;)

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

[–]Mnemonic[S] 2 insightful - 1 funny2 insightful - 0 funny3 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

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.
