First time I’ve seen my home town outside of its own subreddit. Finally, we’re relevant.
Welcome to the club, mate. Finally done Brisbane positivity!!!!
This is where the discussion is headed. Create so much noise and nonsense around the topic that you can't even properly discuss it like adults. It's akin to a child screaming and screaming until they get what they want because the parents just want some quiet.
In other words r/politics
Before people overreact these guns are a complete joke and can not be used in mass shootings. The components will only last a few rounds before wearing down or breaking completely. You’d be lucky to shoot off 2 rounds before it breaks and they have absolutely no accuracy . Although if you wanted to kill one person who you would have to walk up to and practically touch before shooting then yes- these are worrisome. But don’t expect someone to print off a rifle and go on a shooting spree.
When did we become so weak as a species?
Violent Soho - Hungry Ghost
Australian rock/alternative band and arguably one of the best albums of the decade imo. No one in the US knows who they are but they’re massive in Aus. Album doesn’t have a single weak song.
Maybe you shouldn’t go around insulting mass groups of people and calling them names simply because you disagree with them. Isn’t that called... bigotry? Head over back to r/politics where ignorance breeds ignorance and you can hear your sentiments echoed until oblivion.

Edit: instead of responding to me, the bigot blocked me. Typical r/politics ignorants.

Where were you a decade and a half ago, when the GOP labelled Democrats and liberals as unpatriotic because they didn't want us to get bogged down in Iraq? Or when vocally passionate liberals like Howard Dean were railroaded because they were called "crazy" or "the Coalition of the Wild-Eyed"? Or when John Kerry got switfboated?
They did it first. IMO turnabout's fair play.
“A decade and a half ago” ... “they did it first” You sound like a petulant child. You win elections with ideas and moving the masses. Not pointing fingers and crying over people you disagree with. Trump is more than likely going to be a 2 term president simply because the DNC can’t get its shit together. The RNC has movements people get behind and support and go to the ballot box over. Running on an “anti-Trump” and “degenerates” national campaign really worked out so well last time- especially when all the youth does is bitch and whine and then stay home on Election Day. People are so quick to turn to visceral hatred over political labels that it’s going to slide in to real violence if it doesn’t stop.
Reddit is so unbelievably out of touch with the mainstream it’s astounding to me. The RNC has a super majority because their ideas are popular and they know how to push a message people agree with. Democrats are so caught up in immigration and children that they don’t see the big picture- that the economy is booming, unemployment is at a all time low, taxes have been cut, jobs coming back to the states, hundreds of billions in new investments by other countries- America is exploding in growth right now. Yet- all reddit talks about is some nail company going out of business, Harley Davidson losing profits and immigrants being locked up. News flash: the Average American doesn’t give a shit about immigrants, nails or motorcycles. They care about their paychecks, investments and benefits. And the DNC is completely fucking ignorant to that. If the DNC is going to hang it’s hat on immigration then expect the country to have a Republican super majority for the next 6 years. And I’m a damn Democrat.
I am ashamed of my country. This is what you conservatives voted for. What the fuck is wrong with you?
I’m not a republican nor did I vote for Trump but I completely support tough immigration laws. As soon as these people crossed the border they were in violation of federal law and criminals. What are we suppose to do with the children when their parents are detained???? There’s absolutely nothing you can do but put them in shelters and try to find family to send them to.
ANYTIME parents are arrested regardless of nationality the children are taken and either given to family or sheltered. Why this is such an uproar is nothing but narrative pushing so the ignorant get upset.
The Trump administration changed to zero tolerance and started processing misdemeanors judicially after denying these refugees access to ports of entry. THey created this mess.
Considering all you do is post in r/politics and some of your recent posts is calling America a shameful country, refusing to enlist for selective service and calling half the country idiots... anything you say I considered to be fabricated, ignorant and/or completely uninformed.
“Unclear is trump will sign it”. He did sign it. They’re banning users who post articles with titles that say he did sign it because it doesn’t fit the r/politics narrative based agenda.
I’m a democrat. I’m not a republican or pro trump. You just proved my point. Blocking you to save myself from your future ignorance.

We had a similar problem in the office. Everyone brought in lunches and if you didn’t get there early it would be filled to capacity. When they built our new building we lobbied for more refrigerators and ended up with 5. And would you believe it... it’s still a problem. https://i.imgur.com/QlXnCxj.jpg
Fallout 76 - oh I'll just spend hours building my dream settlement... group of 11 year olds with endless free time nuke it to oblivion.
Oh I'll just work my way around this massive mountain to get to that city in the distance... player on top of the mountain who snipes people for XP and their weapons.
Oh I'll just enjoy some music and play the game by myse... player shoots a rocket at you right as you're about to finish a quest.
It's 100% online, all the time. You can choose to play as a single player, but other players can still choose to fuck with you.
People in here so excited- but Starfield is 2-3 years away which makes ES6 4-5 years away.
Prey - no one cares
Wolfenstein - forced female leads with southern accents... okay?
Elder Scrolls online expansion - not 6, don't care
Elder Scrolls Blade - not 6, don't care
Rage 2 - isn't Rage, is some weird new game that looks like there's no challenge and you're invincible
Doom 2 - we saw absolutely nothing and they told us nothing
Fallout online MMORPG
Nice Bethesda. Real nice.
I'm just hoping this isn't some online mmorpg/destiny type game. This will be the first fallout game I pass on if it is.
Someone tell me what I’m suppose to do. I don’t think any of us know what to do! Cheers!!!!!!
I'm in the blindspot as a mid-30s divorced woman.
Edit to add: I don't like sports and live in a sports-driven city.
So, you're essentially what I'm attracted to. In my age group and have a child. Except I love sports- but prefer someone who doesn't.
Sweet. Let's grab a drink.
This is the part where you tell me you live 1,500 miles away from North Carolina.
It used to be a open discussion forum on American politics where regardless of political affiliation politicians were called out for their bs and there were engaging political conversations. It was a fun place to go to and actually get unbiased news on political happenings or see both sides of the argument.
During the last presidential election a major shift occurred and almost overnight it became a one sided biased DNC political arm. The entire sub is now anti-trump/anti-republican 24/7 and the sub actively bans users and downvotes users to oblivion if they post anything that can be construed as positive towards the RNC. Also, almost all submitted content is opinion pieces. I'm not even going to discuss the visceral hate that seethes all through the sub. It's one of the most agenda driver, nasty and hate filled subs on all of reddit.
I miss the old r/politics sub =/
I’m a diehard Cavs fan and I really hope LeBron bails and goes somewhere that is actually competent. Bron is leaving everything on the court, EVERYTHING, and his team and coaching staff is shitting the bed at every possible opportunity. Also, fuck KD.
The new book is INCREDIBLE. I’ve never bought a book when it was first released (I usually wait till it’s at the thrift or half priced books). I got a sample on amazon and I had to buy it. The kindle version was $15 but worth it!
(No spoilers) I finished it today have mixed thoughts. I felt the first half was classic King and wonderfully written. Then I felt he kicked the book in to overdrive and finished it way too quickly. It felt rushed- almost as if he had written the first half himself and let someone else write the second half. It was an enjoyable read but definitely doesn’t break in to my top 20 King novels.
Simply amazing!! Love seeing Aus tattoos.
You’re quite welcome! Have you been back to Baltimore since? I would highly recommend visiting Remington, it’s really nice now!!
Remington is where I lived, actually (easier to say Charles Village since no one knows what Remington is). They built Remington Row about a year before I left and the neighborhood really started to turn around. I used to go to The Dizz on weekends and get breakfast at Papermoon and the Lunchbox on 36th all the time. Yep, I’ve been back twice and am visiting friends in August. I live in Raleigh now.
I actually went to Asheville North Carolina for six months for college! Maybe we possibly ran into each other at some point
I’ve still yet to go to Asheville but I hear it’s gorgeous in the Fall/Winter. It’s quite possible! Baltimore is a small city after all.
I use reddit for entertainment and to connect with people I share common interests with. I don't use it to discuss politics, race, news or argue with people half way around the world. So, posting my face isn't an issue.
Here in Baltimore people are chomping for him to be the early season starter. Crazy. I get Flacco has been in decline but this guy had trouble not sticking to first read throws in Louisville's spread offense. He'll need some time to adjust.
Flacco never developed as a QB. He makes the same mistakes he has since his rookie season, he’s never modified his throwing motion or adjusted his mechanics and the ONLY season he has ever shown growth was the year under Kubiak. Watch him read the field and you’ll notice that he always looks at his primary target and then immediately checks down if they’re not open. He lacks any ability to read the field, play off the safety or throw his player open. Go back and watch his 2012 playoff run and you’ll see our success had little had to do with Flacco. His WRs were making sensational plays and Flacco was just gunning it all around the field with shit accuracy hoping his WRs would come down with the ball and more often than not they did.
We can’t move on from him fast enough.
Ignorance must be bliss.
What I've learned from two decades of being a Ravens fan is whoever Ozzie does pick my initial reaction will be "what THE FUCK OZZIE, SERIOUSLY?!?!? This freaking guy over _______". Then half way through his rookie season I'll say to myself, "god damn Ozzie you genius". Sure, Ozzie has missed on some picks but more often than not his first round picks are slam dunks in hindsight.
I would hate to pass on Ridley for the ravens but Lamar Jackson is really intriguing but I really don’t wanna leave the Flacco era because he has done so much for us
The more I look in to Lamar the more I like him at a prospect. Give him a year to sit behind Flacco, then in 2019 we can cut our ties from Flacco's albatross of a contract and make Lamar our starter. A 6'2" qb who has a cannon for an arm and runs a 4.3 AND can slide... yes please.
It's been reported there was a tip off that spurred the investigation
During the presser they were asked if a tip led to the arrest and they said no.
I heard the opposite, I thought they said there was a public tip? Am I just an idiot or did they contradict themselves ?
No public tip. That was shot down during the questions part of the press conference.
The two inch torturer finally brought to justice.
