the reason that part of texas became part of oklahoma is because texas wanted to be a slave state and that part of texas was over the line in which all land was legally required to be free land, so instead of being forced to have the whole state be a free state they gave up ownership of it. It wasnt originally part of oklahoma, it was a no mans land for a while, no governing state or territory controlled it and multiple attempts to claim it happened before oklahoma territory absorbed it and then became Oklahoma state, solidifying it being oklahoma

absolutely nothing
The panhandle is 8% of oklahoma's land by area and it has less than 1% of the population of oklahoma in it. It's got a population density of about 5 people per square mile. The largest town there only has 11k people in it, which is 1/3rd of the entire region's population.

that last one is rather odd since america isnt really THAT much worse on the unhealthy weight front compared to similar places, its kinda a "modern humanity" has an issue with morbidly obese people rather than any specific country does. The average weight of a brit for example is only 2 pounds lighter than the average weight of an american

what you've just done is attack the semantics of what the person said rather than the actual point of what they were saying. It's no different than trying to invalidate an opponent's point by only replying that they made a typo on line 3 word 8 character 2 of their statement, both of which are what would be categorized as a red herring fallacy.
You are diverting from the difficult to attack statement they made by instead attacking at an insignificant property of that statement that does not matter, a mistake that does not affect the validity of what they said any more than an a typo.

on the matter of "treated like criminals even tho they've never committed a crime"
a big part of that is that such people that want to get help are still rather scared to get help for it, for a reason i can personally sympathize with. When i had issues with depression and thoughts of suicide many years ago in high school i was reluctant to get professional help for it because i feared being institutionalized for my own safety, so i got help for it far later than i should have and my fears were irrational, there was very little actual risk of me being put in a psych ward.
A similar situation exists for those people. Many fear being locked away to remove the risk that they end up offended, a fear thats caused by stories of that happening to pedophiles that go to a therapist for help with it.

i find humor in the fact this meme uses a depiction of satan further from the source material than what it mocks.
satan would be beautiful. Lucifer fell from the heavens because he became a narcissist. He let his pride in his beauty get to his head and he wanted to be worshiped like god, he wanted to be worshiped more than god. Him and 30 million other angels (a third of ten thousand squared) fell from the heavens banished to sheol, the bottom of the pit.
In later scripts jesus describes "the devil" as a thief, a robber whose goal is to steal, to kill, and the destroy.
Ezekiel 28:12-13 is good for knowing that, yes satan is handsome.
"
Son of man, take up a lament concerning the king of Tyre and say to him: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: “‘You were the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone adorned you: carnelian, chrysolite and emerald, topaz, onyx and jasper,lapis lazuli, turquoise and beryl.
"

@anthracite
you assume the person knew they were being sexist, you assumed they were being "an asshole" or "trolling."
It's entirely possible that it was actually genuinely his first assumption and he just blurted out the sudden realization that he had. People make really weird assumptions, its also not uncommon for people to have an inability to keep their mouth shut, cannot think before they speak aloud. Those mix in weird ways.

Generally speaking someone that claims to be a MAP is going to be the bad kind
All the one's that are just mentally ill people that want to stop being treated like criminals even tho they've never committed a crime moved to calling themselves noMAP (this is years old information from me by the way, could very well be stupidly wrong in the modern day from being out of date)
which stands for something like "non-offending minor attracted person"

I can see this happening. The human brain makes really weird shortcuts and quick assumptions automatically, especially in tedious or stressful environments.

Battlelines? What's a battleline? 2 comments

There's also the fact that the vast majority of casualties in a great number of battles happened during a route. A lot of the killing would be people in very broken formations being chased or shot down by loose but still organized formations of high moral enemies.

The primary reason that we eat certain animals and dont eat others is utility. Hence why horses aren't eaten in many places. They had extreme utility for centuries and that affected the culture of the places that used them for utility. It became cultural and in some places religiously bad to eat them for their service to mankind.
On the other end of the spectrum many places refuse to eat dog and cat meat for a variety of reasons
1. because of the populous being uneducated on animal intelligence and thinking that its wrong to eat them because they are smarter than the other animals
2. a general cultural bond to the creatures. It's a lot harder to feel ok eating a given kind of animal when you think of that animal as a source of companionship/friendship.
Cats and dogs both have elements of the above, the utility, as well. Most dog breeds were breed to task. Cats got "tamed" by humans for utility, keeping rodents out of food stores that cats dont want to eat themselves.

The only group of people that can be described as "good"
are good people, the category of people that are good is the only group that can be called, as a group, good by definition.
theoretically speaking you could extend that to other categories of people that are categorized in a way that has a prerequisite of each member already be in the aforementioned "good" category, however, by and large describing any other grouping of people as anything other than the defining feature of that group is going to be at heavy risk of being incorrect. Broad categorizations often are.

likely something about the fact that periods follow a vaguely similar cycle to the moon phases and something about "water of the womb" or the fact that the oceans are often refereed to as the womb of the world.

On the primary topic of the thread tho, idk why anyone would assume the government WOULDN'T take advantage of a big world wide event to strengthen its power. Nothing is sacred, nothing is tragic, everything bad that happens is just an excuse to justify power plays.

just going to point out that the statement " reports of people dying of natural causes or unrelated illnesses" doesn't really mean anything.
Natural Causes just means dying of illness. A death where the person only has covid would be a death by natural causes, covid is an illness, natural causes is dying to an illness rather than a homicide, accident, etc. The same is true of "dying of old age." Old people don't just fall over dead simply for their age. Dying "from old age" is dying from an illness that commonly kills old people. A person will live until something kills them, human's don't just die of age.

When someone dies, everything that is actively degrading their health is a cause of death. A person that has the flu and also has an infection in their lung from a bullet wound, the infection, the flu, and the wound are causes of death, none are "just also there" they are all actively causing death. The same is true replacing any of those with covid.

Milk chocolate > Everything else 20 comments

white chocolate, from a culinary viewpoint, is actually not chocolate. The defining feature of chocolate is the ingredient "cocoa solids" which are the solid biproduct of one of the processes refining the cocoa plant. White chocolate does not have this and as such isn't in the family of foods "chocolates".
Milk chocolate is just dark chocolate mixed with sugar and milk basically, its got all the same "chocolate" parts as dark chocolate has.
now chocolate neither reads as a word nor sounds like a word spoke to me lol
