It's pure light terrified our forefathers. But when it was cast upon the enemy and burnt them to cinders, our tribe saw it was a good light. Wielded by friends and allies.


Automobiles. Of course these weapons of mass destruction are far too powerful and easy to steal. Allowing these insanely dangerous tools to be available to anyone with minimal government over sight is absolute insanity. It's ridiculous that society has been normalized to such savagery taking place daily on the city streets has been allowed to take place by elected officials sworn to protect us.

After that we'll have to get rid of knives. Obviously. They are just too dangerous for the common man to own. These rising crime rates are out of control.

Seems like this type of thing wasn't a big deal historically, I wonder what recent events could have changed things so dramatically?

In all seriousness once self driving vehicle technology is in place, they will likely have installed automatic overrides if you want to run people over. So this one is legitimately a matter of time despite your sarcasm.

Not to gently caress up your narrative there chief, but the opinionpiece you linked about the cars is about taking measures to stop traffic entering pedestrian areas, albeit with some clickbait lines.

I get the point, but you should have gone with the fact that you are more likely to be killed by a baby with a gun,or a wild animal, than a terrorist, and it's not even on the top 100 causes of death.

i would have said that increasing political polarisation coupled with modern blasphemy laws and customs making parts of the left unrelateable while probable economic displacement due to technological advancements and large-scale population movements likely to activate the hardcore reactionaries among us are greater threats, but this post has turned me around.

everyone does backflips for tesla and about how they're leading the way and doing soooooo loving good for the environment and yet elon musk loving shits himself if he hears of a tesla dealer selling one of his cars for a penny less than sticker price

you know who you need to sell these loving electric cars to, if the actual loving goal is saving the environment? poor people. poor motherfuckers who have to commute every single loving day to their lovely jobs. the people who are actually generating all that pollution are the ones who need to be behind the loving wheel of these electric scooter buggies, not the overpaid dipshit tech nerds for whom the goddamn thing will just be a conversation piece once he realizes he actually wants vroom vroom car and can afford those million dollar italian pussy magnets

find a way to make it affordable or just go gently caress yourself, musk. and gently caress you for going into space; can't bother to stick around and try to unfuck this planet, can you? gotta see if there's another planet out there you can blow aliens for zorbobux to fund your solar powered dickpunching machine

stop giving these people attention they want you to look at them SO BAD when they strap their rich asses to a rocket so they can facetime with an ink pen spinning next to them "see this? I'm gonna be the one to save humanity. I got the idea from playing mass effect"
