    Reading the 1610 Douay-Rheims Bible (no Challoner revision)

    The Douay-Rheims Bible was produced in around 1582-1610, mainly by Catholic exiles from England on the Reformation. It is contemporaneous with, but very different to, the Protestant King James Bible that was produced about one year later. It might be considered perhaps the last authentic...

    Six thousand posts and all I got was this fucking narcissism T-shirt

    Hooray, etc. It's been a really fun ride. I have enjoyed this place from the philosophy of delicioustacos to the ascension to godhood of Little Dark to the Ten Thousand Pointless Questions of johnbozzz to the religious conversion of AnonymousBosch. Hope it continues for another 6,000. :)...

    Silly girls put off having kids because of global warming

    ...but as usual, the biological clock starts to overwhelm idiocy. https://www.perthnow.com.au/news/environment/climate-change-quells-motherhood-plans-ng-s-1924058 Meanwhile, said silly girls are also supporting open borders policies to bring in groups that breed like rabbits, thus making...

    Peggy Noonan tells everyone to act like adults, generates narcissism instead

    https://outline.com/ypNbGz For reference, Peggy Noonan was Reagan's scriptwriter. The opinion piece comes from the mouthpiece of that part of the marionette meant to represent the Right, i.e. the Wall Street Journal: I'm still composing. As starting points, consider these when analysing...

    Demolishing some brick walls, want to save the bricks, looking for tips

    Hi fellas-- Pretty much what it says on the can. No experience doing this. The bog standard Internet advice on recovering or salvaging bricks from already-built walls, with the intent of reusing them, seems to come down to (1) Get a cold chisel and a hammer, be careful how you tap, and...

    Lead singer of Cranberries suddenly dies.

    The big artists from the 90s are all turning 40. The following outcomes are germane to them: (1) They get their first dose of mortality, their first dose of knowing they really are past it and they won't be able to succeed off attention whoring anymore. (2) Their bodies are changing, so...

    Think your money is safe in Australia with a pre-nup and imported EE pussy? Nope.

    This is an Australian High Court decision and was originally aimed at unconscionable conduct, but in its roots lies the destruction of the pre-nuptial agreements. It also demonstrates the fact that a lawyer (and now, an ex-wife) can keep fucking you after you're dead...

    Ready Player One is going to be The Matrix of the 2020s

    And not in a good way, either. This is all Internet prognostication by me, and I have neither a degree in psychiatry or film reviewing, so having dispensed with the argumentum ad auctoritatem, have a think about the ideas and see where you end up. We of course don't know what the film is...

    "Why Happy People Cheat": 10,000 words, and all it spells is 'hypergamous narcissism'

    I'd bet The Last Psychiatrist would've been twitching about this one. https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2017/10/why-happy-people-cheat/537882/ Here's the unadulterated (see what I did there) text first, comments will be later.

    Some Interesting Concordances Between Modern Literature And The Golden Ratio

    In summary: the highest Return-On-Investment films appear to follow fairly strongly the pattern of the Golden Ratio ... and from my brief experimentation, it looks like some of the more popular "breakout" novels do so as well. I got interested after doing some reading at this very...

    The Rise of The Anger Room

    In its second minute the Hate rose to a frenzy. People were leaping up and down in their places and shouting at the tops of their voices in an effort to drown the maddening bleating voice that came from the screen. The little sandy-haired woman had turned bright pink, and her mouth was opening...

    Have Smartphones destroyed a generation? (No; the current one is doing that.)

    https://www.theatlantic.com/amp/article/534198/ Some of you may have seen the more salient details on Zero Hedge, but being an idiot, I went and clicked on the Atlantic article from which this was sourced. I read it, and saw a few things there, some I'd expected, some I hadn't. To save...

    Avocados Part II: Gen X millionaire tells Gen Y to get a job

    SamuelBRoberts' earlier thread is here. Thought this might want its own discussion since this time it's an American millionaire who's telling Gen Y to lift itself up by its own nose hairs. Lemonis is a classic liberal moron. His degree from university was political science with a minor...
