I honestly thought Stewart was dying - his trailing off was kind of worrisome. Where would we be without the Mad Priest of Guam?

yo, if this one gets greenlit, I accidentally sent it to FSTDT instead of SSTDT.

Just realized something: "Alt-left" won't be eligible for the Fundie Word Redefinition Project award, because it never had a coherent meaning to start with.

I think there was a group of people that called themselves the alt-left (I found an "AlternativeLeft" subreddit at the very least) and I'm pretty sure they're not happy about fundies using their name as an incoherent slur.

If I remember correctly, TimeToTurn and maybe NeoMatrix used the term "Alt-Left" to refer to themselves.

Hey shy, we still need the 'go to top' and 'go to bottom' buttons on the random quote pages.

Did everyone survive the annual end of the world?

Should we leave Lookie in 2017 as Kanna and Joules propose?

Edit:
I officially don't approve RetroSpriteResources posts anymore.

Guys. I have a hypothesis.
As we probably all know, in Leviticus 19:28 yahweh forbids tatoos:
Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.

I have an idea why:
Revelation talks about various marks, for example:
3:12
Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

As 9:4 reveals (pun intented), this is necessary for the seven apocalyptic angels, so they don't accidentally torment righteous christians:
9:4
And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.

Later, the same thing happens with those who worship the "beast":
13:16
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads

This is because:
14:9-10
And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God
, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and blahblahblah

Now think about that:

How are those angels gonna find the right tatoo if you're covered with them?

Maybe you're so covered in tatoos by the time armageddon hits, there's no place left to give you the mark of the beast/blessed. (Maybe god should have left that bit of foreskin after all, right?)

Or maybe he didn't want people to cheat.
"I'm getting a YHWH tatoo to fuck with the angels"

What do you think?
At least makes more sense than most of the bible :)

Edit: I guess next I have to tackle why old yah forbid polyester and shrimp cocktails.
Stay tuned.


Edit2: Wait, wait, wait.
Maybe yah is collecting all those foreskins so he has some skin left even if someone cheats! That's his failsafe! That's why he's so obsessed with circumcision! And he glues them back on and tells the angels: "If you see a full tatooed man, look at his dick."

Concerning this 'Illoonymati' 419 scam spammer, perhaps it's time to finish what Distind started, re. stopping such.

Let that thread die.

Is it just me or are things a little bit slow, especially in regards to the category voting thread.

Sorry, guys, I can't say much right now, but there's been a family emergency and I'll probably be gone for the next few days and not around much for a short while after that. Don't worry about me; I am fine. Please send your thoughts and prayers to my husband and his family instead: his father died, and it was sudden and unexpected, so he is taking it very hard. We have a flight to where his family lives today.

I promise I will try to have the quotes nominations up for the FSTDT Awards as soon as I can! I was actually starting to work on it yesterday when we got the news. So you guys have at least something for the time being, here are the user categories that won by popular vote:

• Abuse Apologist
• Evo Psycho Award
• Jack Chick Memorial Award
• Most Obnoxious Style Award
• Science Denialist Award
• Vogon Award
• Watchlist Award

I decided to stop at seven because it's a good, lucky number, and there were way too many ties past that.

I am also adding these two user nominations to the list because of their topical relevance the past year:

• Flat Earth Award: ...it's like a ton of them suddenly came out of literally nowhere.
• Heteronormative Crusader: Because Australia got marriage equality, and people stateside think being legally required to do equal business with same-sex couples is persecution and literally tantamount to the Holocaust.

Someone's spamming Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue pictures.....for, uh, some reason.

^ This. Revenge by the 419 scam lad for his Iloonymati-ism being given the Mjolnir treatment? But then I'm reminded of this instance:

http://www.fstdt.net/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=94327&Page=3#1540017

@Fräulein

kill all Muslims is filling up the whole thing with pictures of scantily clad women from Sports Illustrated


So this previous spammer - with the same M.O. - has returned? Distind dealt with such then.

He's only reached this far on the main page as of my typing this:

http://www.fstdt.net/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=135995

So hopefully this retard - and his activities - can be nipped in the bud in time.

Perhaps time for stronger security other than '[ ] I'm not a spambot', shy/mods. Someone's not going by the script: with a script.

Nuke the s(h)ite from orbit via making it so that only those who have registered can comment? It's the only way to be sure.

Two of the IPs the troll used were formerly used by Nomen Nescio.

But let me give you one piece of advice, troll: If your idea of grieving is hot chicks in revealing clothes, you are doing it wrong.

Please feel free to take your time. The quote of the year is really not that important. All my best wishes to your husband.

My computer's cooling was not working properly and is now in repair (I'm writing from a substitute device). It may well take two weeks till I get it back - it actually was giving a warning on start-up that the fan is not working properly, so the problem is likely more serious than just being clogged by dust. :-(

Off-topic but it's about how the internet results report Progressive news.

Now; I was looking up the web about the Big Democratic Blue Wave that is likely coming....but keep getting discouraging articles saying "Don't bet on it" or whatever. Many of these are even in supposedly-Prog-leaning places like The Washington Post and a few others....

A lot of times I look up stuff on the web and all I see is stuff implying that the Democrats/Left/Progressives/etc. are faltering....

....which of course, is not the case.

There's a few encouraging links but a lot of discouragement.

Since the majority of Americans support Progressivism and the GOP's antics is obviously so monstrous that people are bound to vote in droves and the recent elections have shown this truth....why are my Internet results always so Chicken Little.

Look; I'm aware that there could still be snags in the Blue Wave....but rather than saying "It can likely happen and will likely happen, but don't get complacent and VOTE!", the language of the headlines sounds doomy-gloomy.

I need to ask this question....Are the Plutocrats/Sodomites in the business of manipulating the media and Internet search browsers so that there are few encouraging headlines for Progressives?

Anyone else encounter this? Trying to find the sweeping Progressive trend in the world and words of hope and strength....which is real....since we are living in The Aquarian Age/Ascending Dwapara Yuga (yeah, I know not all of you believe this stuff) and the Genie of Progressivism cannot be contained....only to find Debbie Downers?

Is there a way to find better hopeful, truthful Progressive good news to fill my browser results?

Am I using the wrong keywords?

I'm using Bing but I got this with Google, too.

@SpukiKitty have you seen my right-wing friends/family/acquaintainces news feeds? If you believed them, it would imply that sex ed is basically composed of watching porn and live sex demonstrations with a teacher and a chosen student, and that Trump is either one of (((them))) or basically being held prisoner by (((them))) and the government is going to come in and take your guns any day now. I mean, read FSTDT! The news is always gloomy no matter what source you read.

@all Best pair of charts ever

@pyro:
sex ed is basically composed of watching porn and live sex demonstrations with a teacher and a chosen student

I suspect the former being their main source on sex ed...
Although in the Sixties and Seventies, many porn films were indeed officially made for sex-educational purposes (the so-called "Aufklärungsfilme"), even getting funding from the Ministry of Education...
