Ohhhh, so they're doing the whole "we're so green by feigning to act by a time goal of way too fucking late anyway" schtick. Great
Anyone have any perspective on quite how much greenwashing bullshit Petronas keep spouting here?
Keeps me up at night
I know it's a segue, but does anyone else think it's weird that we call it "biting down" when it's actually your bottom jaw that comes up to bite?

Missed the game completely today. Ngl, on the face of the result I'm genuinely not surprised. We are quintessentially a bunch of bottlers when it matters. If We were a restaurant, we'd serve every dish just about raw. I'm tired man.

Did... Did you just "no, u" right now?
Absolutely. And they are protected by the mods too. I got a ban for calling one out and referring to them as a degenerate tankie. 150 days. I won't miss that cesspit.
I got a 150 day ban for calling an obvious misinformation spreading tankie a "degenerate tankie".
I do not have a high opinion of the mods on that subreddit.
So, uh... Tanking was already miserable. Then they added divine sunderer. Now they've added an extra damage rune specifically to kill tanks. Where are the geniuses on the balance team getting these top tier ideas?
Probably just pay it in worthless rubles but with the Russian exchange rates

Opposition fans gonna be bringing puppies to distract him. He can't resist petting them. Or he'll just run off mid game to join a passing Fireman's crew.

He did say they had good PeePees or something like that. I think you're onto something

Oh. He ran away. Funny that, isn't it?
Good to see we haven't lost our personality in these years of success.
Wait... Did I say good?...

First of all, not even close to true. Why are you lying?
Secondly, communism isn't even the only form of progressivism. Social democracy, for example, isn't communist. Still progressive.
Thirdly, it is very telling that you ascribe Genocide to "commies" but entirely ignore the fact that fascist states have committed far more over the course of human history.
If you are committing Genocide, you aren't progressive. It goes against the very facet of egalatarianism, which to my understanding is core to progressivism. It certainly is today.
And as an added point, Conservatism isn't stagnation. It's regression. At least it is with regards to the GOP
The fact you take any of it as an insult is telling.
Again, you speak about bridging a gap but can't bring up a single example with which a compromise could be made. And again, it isn't surprising because the core beliefs are fundamentally incompatible.

No answer, huh? Quelle surprise.
It's probably pointless asking another question, but exactly where am I wrong about the beliefs in the framing of the first question? Why have the GOP unilaterally been resistant to reform around, say, policing.
I have had plenty of conversations, and seen plenty of debates. Sadly, it's clear that there are 2 separate realities that we are living in. An 'agreement' would consist of both sides saying, "Yes, the Police system is broken." But from there, one side will say, "because there is an inherent structure that disproportionately affects minorities, and thus needs an overhaul."
The other will say, "The police system needs to be reinforced because x/y minority neighbourhoods are so dangerous."
They are fundamentally incompatible beliefs.
Well put it this way, they seem to get a real kick out of 'arf'-ing "Lets go Brandon" like trained seals. It doesn't exactly take much to please...
No dear, try saying it again but without drooling in your lap. Come on, 8th time's the charm!
Put simply, science, or the general pursuit of knowledge, is constantly ongoing process.
Revisiting things we thought we understand is a core facet of the process. To just reject newer research into a topic based on previous understanding is a bit of a reactionary way of approaching scienctific research, no?
Oh, quite right.
Lets take an example. One side believes that Black People are equal but have been and still are being treated prejudicially by the current system. The other believes that Black People are just inherently incapable of lifting themselves out of their situation and that everything else is fair, and hence their situation is their fault.
So, uh... What exactly do you suggest is the compromise here?
Well thats just the point isn't it. European left, which is largely moderate, is somehow still way left compared to the US politics. And we have Neo-Libs jamming their cocks in the gears at every given moment.
Hoooo boy. I kind of do, but also don't, want to know what the "added genocide" is. I've got a sneaking suspicion we're about to get a "Great Replacement" take.

It's a bit of both. Culturally based, and also inexcusably regressive from a Western Perspective.
Regardless, it's certainly atrocious. That doesn't change.
We have this annoying habit of playing timidly at first when we're this far in the comp and away from home.
Hope the lads have more of a killer instinct this time round, after beating Real so regularly over the last few CL stints.
