“that’s not a space elevator it’s actually a giant CCP mind control antenna”

yea that sub has a higher lib to comrade ratio than a lot of others but I kinda get it since it’s a “baby’s first ML space” kinda thing

I think they’re confusing the odd Z-posting nazbol weirdo with people who see what’s happening with Russia/NATO as a turning point in the US-led “rules-based” world order

yea I sometimes browse stuff like r/ukraine to soak in all the delusion but I can only handle so much per day without dying of cringe

because I’m a masochist I sometimes put the news on while I do stuff around my apartment and earlier this evening I was cleaning my cat’s litter box and heard “an arrest warrant has been issued for Russian president Vladimir Putin” and burst out laughing at the absurdity of it

in the US people also regularly run over protestors with their cars and get away without punishment because “I was scared”

I think the one I’m remembering had something about reading Chinese in the title but this was a good read too, thanks

I wish I could remember where I saw it but a few years ago there was an article in which the CIA was crying about how hard it is to spy on China because their counter-intelligence network keeps finding and executing spies, and I specifically remember a quote bemoaning the difficulty of recruiting people because “it’s hard to find willing people who know how to read Chinese.” Lmao

you’re not missing much, they even quote someone from the atlantic council lol

I commented about this on reddit a while ago but it’s honestly so funny that Germany knows the US blew it up and yet still has to “yes, honey” them like a good little pet lmao. Absolutely pathetic.

love how every outlet is just unquestioningly calling it a “spy balloon” now. Talk about inventing reality.

I love how ridiculous it is that so many of our cities (and states) are just some other city or country name but with “New” prepended to it.

It’s one of those things where if you tell someone about it you sound like a conspiracy nut, but like… come on

after it flew across the entire country lol

yea when the news about sending tanks over came out the first thing I thought was that Russia is probably gonna love spamming pictures of destroyed abrams/leopard tanks all over their media lol

I feel like the people who say “I used to be a Marxist, but…” are the ones whose foray into Marxism was posting lefty memes on discord or something.

It must be nice to have the kind of privilege to be like “You know what? I don’t really care what happens anymore. Not my problem.”

yea that’s what I mean, like the tank would be forced to leave the battlefield

lol I saw those comments and was thinking “okay… then what?” like, yeah the crew is still alive but what are they supposed to do now that their ammo exploded? And do they think the enemy will just fire once and that’s it?

also the frequency (hz) of their purr has also been shown to promote bone growth and heal fractures!

bruh I’ve almost given up on trying to explain this shit to my friends. I keep getting accused of “falling for Russian propaganda” and I want to scream. People here are so heavily propagandized that talking about anything that goes against the west’s narrative is immediately dismissed as propaganda. It’s maddening.

It must be so nice to just explain everything away that easily and go about your day.

yea a lot of left wing servers I’m in are just people sending commie memes at each other and that’s it

I feel like discord (and other similar platforms) is so bad for people lol. I went a really long time without using it and eventually gave in and joined when genzedong got quarantined and damn is there a whole lot of ridiculous drama/power tripping/people taking things way too seriously.

(old man voice) When I was younger I would hang out in IRC channels and the exact same stuff would happen. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in your little internet umwelt and turn into a terminally online weirdo. It sounds trite but sometimes people really do need to just go touch some damn grass

it’s so funny when libs hear news about China reaching some kind of tech milestone and their first thought is “well obviously China wouldn’t be able to develop that before the US, so naturally it was stolen”

Just today I’ve seen three commercials for shen yun and every time I have to hear that stupid “Experience China Before Communism” tagline. God shut the fuck up

a few of my friends are still talking like this in our group chat. I had to silence the chat for a while because I got so tired of them being like “Putin is fucked,” “Russia’s military is so inept, look at this pic of one of their broken down tanks,” “check out this video of a drone dropping a grenade on a single Russian soldier, epic!”

Needless to say I’ve been looking forward to this war ending, mostly because I want an end to the bloodshed but a small part of me just wants to enjoy watching all the “slava ukraini!!!” people being forced to confront reality lol

In 2020 it was so frustrating watching experts talk about how if the world coordinated our lockdowns we could effectively end the virus within a couple months or so. Then when the US finally started shutting things down (well, my state at least) I watched some of my friends whine about how they wanted to go eat at a restaurant or go to the movies and how being asked to stay at home was the worst thing that’s ever happened to them.

Seeing how little some of my friends cared that people were dying made me so mad that I ended up just dropping a few of them and haven’t talked to them since. I hate it here

the first thing I thought when I saw this on the news was “they’re gonna use this to distract from all the ukraine fallout, aren’t they?”

incredibly funny to mass downvote a bunch of posts on a site where votes are meaningless

oh for sure, sometimes when I’m cooking with cheese and a little bit burns on the pan I do the same thing lol

Also after their talk, Trudeau left the room while Xi stayed to greet other leaders lol. JT looked like a kid who just got scolded in front of his friends

it’s not but a lot of people got screenshots of it
