Is it a non-issue though? Nike did recall the shoes after all, and now that he has come out in favour of this view tumblr and Twitter have jumped on board.

Seems the goalposts might shift, and if so thatís seriously awful.

When even the ADL calls a racism claim nonsense, it isn't going to have much in the way of legs. Few take Tumblr seriously unless they're looking for somebody to mock, and Twitter has a short shelf life even though the posts stay.

I was gonna say it would be hilarious if the OG 'Murican flag suddenly became known as a "racist symbol", same as the confederate flag... but then I realised plenty of lefties probably consider the modern-day US flag to be such a thing already. *shrug*   


Edit: speaking of flags, @Tack have you heard/read about our old flag? Apparently it originally had a red background and looked far more badass and distinctive than the plain jane we have now. I kinda want to fly the Blood and Guts flag, haha.

plenty of foreigners consider the flag a symbol of corruption, materialism, ham-fisted imperialism, and general ignorance.  I mean racism isnt too far off the mark, considering how much press race relations get here.

Ďtis the problem with symbols: the same symbol can mean different things to different people, and those meanings change over time.

... Itís literally just the US flag before there were more than 13 states. I donít understand how that follows.

If anything, the current flag with its 50 stars is a symbol of imperialism.

Pretty sure Pisskop was referring to the current flag.

Feels like everything old is awful and offensive for some reason or another.  Or they diddled someone.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_Australia You mean the one currently used for merchant vessels? Thatís the only one on the page with a red background.

Unrelated, but I always have a devil of a time trying to decide how to respond to compliments. Argh.

Fakeedit: yes, the Red Ensign. Apparently it used to be used more widely by civilians in general. I think it looks wicked cool.

I'm currently on ⅓ of the normal dose of my stimulants, and I have no clue what I'm feeling now. It's probably paranoia, but it's too weak to say much about it.

Tired.

How much do you usually take, and for how long have you been taking them?

Also, what stimulants, if you donít mind me asking?

54 mg, which breaks down to one 18 mg pill and one 36 mg pill. My memories are unclear, but I think I've been taking these things since I was 7. Or 8. Or 9. I'm not really sure when I started.

Concerta.

upon checking, I learned that peanut marzipan is the simplest shit in the universe to make.

It is literally just peanuts and sugar.


I have adapted the recipe I found slightly, so that I can use almond flour and peanut butter powder along with a few tablespoons of peanut oil. Works great in candy molds. Awesome. (I need the almond flour for the texture, since it needs to be crumbly, not "peanut butter", which is what you get when you mix powdered peanut butter and peanut oil.)


In other WTF-- when researching how to make cupcake pops... you mix frosting into cake crumbs to make the darn things. that just seems... Odd.
