Animal singular. Even with all the millions of notes being produced the trace amounts of tallow still only equate to about half the weight of fat in the average heifer.

I was pointing out the shock tactics that are being used.

More people are losing their shit over this than the fact the Government knows I texted my mother this evening and what it was about, or the fact that for some inexplicable reason the Food Standards Agency can view my pornhub history...

They can look at my search history if they want.

They'll probably kill themselves if they see how boring most of the things I look at are.

Got bored and googled my name and had a giggle that it's now listed on baby names and pronunciation websites. :lol:

The name analysis is total bullshit and doesn't describe me at all (but that's pretty standard), but the pronunciation is spot on! :yes:

I think they wanted to go to Amarillo...

lol, what about? Did someone dare to disagree that Trivium aren't the best thrash band on the planet? Did someone have the nerve to say that Kittie aren't the future of metal?

This place isn't the same without Andy.

About his inability to distinguish between me objecting to the outlawing of a nazi group, being a huge overreach of government powers, and me supporting said nazi group.

Oh yeah I saw that. Cringefest.

I hate folk who preach that if you aren't actively anti-nazi/ anti-racism or whatever then that makes you a full blown nazi/racist yourself, and then follow it up with "If you don't agree with me then delete me and never talk to me again".

Seen a bunch of posts on the internet calling for certain bands to be boycotted, cancelled from festivals, the hysterical Twitter elite doing their very best to dig up smear campaigns for groups and individuals they don't like.
The world sometimes contains people and ideas that maybe you don't agree with? Get over it. I don't want to sound dramatic over it but it's starting to looking like we're sleepwalking into a totalitarian state.

The threshold for 'nazi' right now is so low the list of 'members' has never been more diverse :lol:

That sort of all-or-nothing behaviour is a clear sign of emotional frailty or lacking power in one's life somewhere, so they derive power from moral oneupmanship. It's caught on in recent years because it's the easiest, laziest form of passive-aggressive oneupmanship there is. I wouldn't say we're sliding into totalitarianism though, because voting behaviours at the very least suggest people are low-key tired of that shit (although it could be a different kind of totalitarianism we're heading towards, we'll see). The fact there's rarely anything admirable about the sort of people who do that in terms of how they run their own life, probably had something to do with it as well.

The funny thing about that discussion is plenty of people were capable of criticising Tet's stance without splitting things into absolutes, but then Andy argues (and writes) like a 16-year-old. Considering his behaviour on here I don't think it's much of a loss, Tet!

lol, that reminds me of when Tyr played in London with Sirenia and Unleash The Archers a few weeks ago, and a load of dicks were trying to get Tyr removed from the bill because they supported whaling, and were handing out leaflets with ridiculously melodramatic anti-whaling propanganda describing the bloodthirsty hunt and saying young children were encouraged to rip unborn foetuses out of the dying whales wombs. If they had come over here campaigning for whaling to be legalised and telling us all we should go whaling the reaction may have been justified to some extent, but all they'd come over here for was to play a fucking gig!!!

Looks like they never watched Heri's rejoinder to the accusation many months prior. People really are becoming caricatures.
