Whoah, you must have been quite mad (and out of yourself) to call entire German population those names  glasses

I'm no German, but nevertheless I'm inclined against that type of generalizations. It is the same saying Americans are <insert your preferred expletive or derogate term> based on some street survey (like geography questions about out of the USA countries) ... I'm sure correct answers were edited out of the show as uninterested. Or saying (non)religious people are <smothing-something> ...

I call moderators to clean (delete) this up a bit.

BTW, where is this quote of @twoion's from? It's not in the last few pages of this thread, though I may be missing it.

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

One more thing, and I'll leave @twoion out this, sonce I can't find his quote in context... I'm ranting about Americans, not American politics, though of course that directly follows.

Was initially just on top of IMBeCil's. Figured twoion removed it himself. I personally didn't see the need to. As you said, he was just calling out his own race/city/country/space, which is fine (within reasonable limits) in my book. We're already wrapped in too much cotton wool these days anyway, naively thinking we can smother hate away by pretending to play Happy Family in public, ignorantly typing on laptops put together by minimum wage workers while wearing slippers made by child slave labourers.

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

When it was full moon took this photo: the moon is the bright spot and the reflection from the glass is just under.
https://i.imgur.com/udofjkb.jpg
Tried with the webcam microscope attached to the phone.
That turned out too blurry and it was difficult to point to the moon with the optical zoom somewhere between 40X and 1000X.
Then you realize how the moon is a small dot in a big sky.

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

I'm looking forward to dinner.  I'm going to cook a nice rump steak.  Rare.  With it, I shall have a salad.  A delicious salad to accompany my rare rump steak.

Excellent.

That was a delicious steak.  Perfectly cooked, even if I do say so myself.

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

^ No mate. Just invites trouble. Beef will insult Hindus and Buddhists. Pork will insult Muslims and Jews. Anything edible will insult vegans. Anything with avocados will invite the cartels. Anything cooked by a dude will cause neon-haired lesbians to go on a rant spree. Remember, modern internet people are simply lumps of cotton candy that somehow gained sentience. They're sensitive.

Edit:
Fwiw, I made a decadent salad of sliced avocados, premium Portuguese sardines (the tin art is epic on these Mediterranean brands, fyi), cocktail onions and olives, all coated in a dressing made from Greek yoghurt, extra virgin olive oil (that came with the sardines), herbs and a nice spoonful of truffle pate. That's right, I've out-hipstered @hhh's restaurant.

Edit 2:
Our avocados come from Australia, btw, so (afaik) no cartel blood money here. Consuming too much of em might give you a twangy accent though.

Heeey! Don't insult lumps of cotton candy.
In a cotton candy language the term "internet people" is a big insult. lol

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

I put ketchup on my ketchup, I like my eggs raw so I can develop immunity to salmonella (look what it did for Rocky), I only eat beef other than eggs for protein (also raw, heat just reduces the nutrients), I only eat bleached white bread (like I like my women), and I want extra gluten. Then, nuke the entire site from orbit, it's the only way to be sure.
