Where are the rest of the ~70 comments?
I know right? I was hoping for a long, interesting debate
Interesting debate with 15 yya and 3 no ways...and for some reason 7X comments...
Wait, what happened to 69 comments? They seem really interesting, what happened?
don't worry me and softball8 unintentionally made about 40 comments in a single thread, thus filling the gap. About .3% of it has to do with your post. YOUR WELCOME!
Except now it says there are 140 comments...
well its better than it was before!
ALL OF OUR COMMMENTS ARE GONE!!! who deleted our conversation to nowhere!?!?!
I was wondering about that... I never saw what went on, just that like 70 comments were deleted. what was it even about?
Short answer: it was about absolutely nothing in particular.
Long answer: we started talking about your post, and in general the "post of the days." We than made a reference to the amirite "time macne." From here we spiraled into an imaginary "back and forth"conversation about using a time machine like in "back to the future".
The topics included: amirite, post of the days, time travel, my delorian, my delorian getting robbed in gotham, batman getting robbed, batman being useless, having to ride bikes, learning to ride bikes, google maps, the poor quality of apple maps on the iphone, golf, sports of the future, Mongolian throat singing, and shifty animals.
What the hell is going on. I don't think there was a POTD today either.
well it looks like it wasn't a debate
but a string of letters
Oh, hah, now I see what they were...
Well, technically patriotism comes from the Latin word "patria" which means country, so that doesn't actually make sense
Well that's an interesting idea, but all i have to say to that is:
AMERICA!!! FUCK YEAH!
Oh god, that hurt me right in the patriotism.
This one might be fatal.
Ah a young optimist. So beautiful. So sad.
I said "should", not "does"
But that's not as fun. Because then we couldn't be better than anyone else. It would be like having the NFL, but every single person on Earth supports the Dolphins. Who would you boast to whenever they won? There would hardly even be a point in showing pride. Goddam, I'm getting depressed just thinking about it.
I know showing pride is a very limited aspect of patriotism, and that this post really is directed towards pulling everyone together and all. But I was just saying, yknow?
If the whole world rooted for the Dolphins, then no one would ever boast because they never win.
Except the other teams would purposely lose because they were secretly cheering for the Dolphins. But the Dolphins would still manage to find a way to screw it up.
I don't know, the Bills would most likely lose to them
that isn't true; Americans are patriotic to the USA but they still can support their local sports teams, as it would be on a grander scale
Well, pride can be a pretty dangerous thing, so it would be good if there was less of it.
Thanks, man, feeling the love right there
Nah, i get it, thanks though. I definitely agree that it isn't POTD worthy, i was just kidding. It may just be the lowered quality of posts, or the fact that they're just chosen badly
you can recommend potd's my suggestion, we rally the troops and spam the ever loving fuck out of the best one on the site, if i hear the call you have my bow!
but we gotta make sure god exits... duh!
Bur if there's no futer....?!?!?
Take that you smug Christians!!!
Everyone knows we play golf in the futer!!!
Get to the time macne we can fix this!
The horn of helmhammerhand shall ring again!!! BWARRAAAARARARR (i can't make horn noises). TO THE TIME MACNE!!!
shit, we will have to take your time macne my delorians out of gas... and i left it parked in a bad neighborhood, so the flux capacitor is gone!
well i used the bat signal... and low and behold the batmobile was next to me the whole time. on cynder blocks, with no radio, and no windshield wipers. Sooo, i guess batman's not going to help us.
in hindsight maybe i shouldn't have parked in gotham its all one big bad neighborhood.
Its go time!!! fuck i don't have google maps on my phone!!! spot me, quick!!
Its telling me to turn right at the grand canyon!? and its interface makes my eyes bleed, Take the handlebars quick!
its easy! its like riding a bike!
No, its much more akin to mongolian throat singing. And if you cant do that just sing "rolling in the deep" by adele.
don't trust him he's a scheming little bastard!
It was too small, and was comical at best! And im pretty sure he keyed my delorian
which was strung out after a meth bender!
of course, because, and it should be obvious by now, if the futer exists, than so does god!
what was this post about, something about pride, i think...?
I am an idealist too, so I can't disagree... Still, your country is a bit like an extension of your family. We need look out for each other.
I like this one the most :)
Don't tell him what not to tell you to do.
A nice theory, but you can't have all of humanity on the same team for every aspect. Or else, it would be a similar situation to having a world ruler, which everyone knows sucks for reasons too long to explain here properly. If we had an interstellar empire, then planets would be like countries and this could work, because there'll be things outside the world's ruler's power, thus keeping him in check.
but we shouldn't be on our country's team just because they're our country. If the USA committed a genocide against another country, we should not support America in it just because we're patriotic. we should be patriots to the world and see (at least in obvious issues) when our country it utterly wrong
If the USA committed a genocide, you would be being unpatriotic to SUPPORT your nation. These ideas of patriotism you're talking about are outdated and Chinese. Being patriotic is about standing up to a crap government and doing what's best for your nation. Not being afraid to say what needs to be said! If the government committed a crime like genocide, it is the patriotic duty of the citizens to rise up and overthrow them.
yeah..theoretically. but its way too tree hugging ting to follow :P
