@1702923402@twitter Yeah, yeah, yeah... don't worry. We took all your gays, all your immigrants, all you minorities, all your weirdos, all your misfits, so you can KNOWINGLY smile at each other because you've rooted out everyone who is not exactly like you. We don't claim to know each other. We LET each other BE. It's called freedom. It's called America. It's what NYC is, and your small town where you have to be accepted, have to fit in, have to make yourself KNWON is not.
Do you know who else knew all their neighbors? KGB.
@18636451@twitter "no cop would even consider this as harassment"
Oh, yeah. Whenever we are not sure if someone is being unjustly treated based on the demographic category they happen to belong to, we should go to the ultimate authority on the issue: the fucking cops.
I seriously appreciate your input here for the sheer hilarity of it. It's just brilliant.
It makes sense that the guy who designs these is putting on show of being a condescending asshole ("oh, you wouldn't understand it, but I assure you, I'm being very clever here"). After all, he works on products written by some pretty damn smart people, and what's his job? To "put a bird on it"!
"It's almost like something out of speculative fiction"
Homeland? Why not Hunger Games? I'm pretty sure you have to be born before 1965 (let alone 2005) to think Claire Danes > Jennifer Lawrence.
Seriously, there is a reason why people who are very good at marketing chose to name a show meant to be super scary and xenophobic - "Homeland"

@Lockheed Ventura You know, "in my book" saving the lives of million (or so) civilians running for their lives counts for more than "pretext of bringing democracy". But then again, I'm a sane, rational individual.
Also, why does bombing Muslim countries count and bombing Christian ones doesn't? I think "you people" have trouble keeping track of everyone we've bombed.

If replacing free reigning violent gangs of mobsters, skinheads and other fuckers with busloads of progressive and affluent tourists is now called "death", then by all means: kill my hometown now (Belgrade). There is nothing "cool" about missing out on economic activity that would provide the exhausted masses with some dignified existence.
So, yes, please, go visit Belgrade, spend as much money as possible and "ruin" it by making it boring and liberating it from that "may you live in interesting times" curse. There's been enough art. Time for some damn cuckoo clocks.
Ugh. Just don't forget to breathe, young people.
@Zebram Zee@facebook "this is nothing different from what virtually all sides of the political spectrum do. "
Racists and bigots are NOT "a side of the political spectrum". Inciting outrage against people's skin color is NOT the same as inciting outrage against bigotry.
@roundsquare "First there was a shooting, then riots by mostly black people, and finally a heavy police presence."
First we elected a black president, and now look at all this shit. Got it.
