If I didn't think it would be misinterpreted as an endorsement, I would make my twitter handle "bitcoins without borders".

You mean to tell me my highly violatile digital assets aren't benefiting from a country known for cyber warfare declaring war on their neighbor?

it is super cool and not at all depressing that we seem to have forgotten all of the lessons of the 20th century, right down to the basic ones like “fascism is bad” and “nobody wins a nuclear war”

I think the problem is that we, as an species, didn't really learn the lesson. Or rather, that we tend to mentally stick a "unless I'm benefit from it" at the end of each of those lessons.

Communist psychological warfare tactics are being used daily within the party. These tactics are being used to destroy anyone of true character who would oppose the man who introduced them into our community for the last 20 years. The endless slander, gossip, conspiracies, sabotage, lies, hatred, pointless criticism, blocking of ideas, and mutiny brought against my administration has done what I once never thought possible. They have broken my spirit. I can face the Democrats with courage and conviction, but I can't fight my own people too.

Why do modern Republicans talk like someone on a LARP forum who was just discovered to be a sex pest?

The hypothetical that I refused to answer was "save 100k people by slapping someone", which is just silly. A far cry from complaining that real coins aren't perfectly balanced.

(I'm not sure what the connection is, and figuring it out would require more reading than I'm willing to do)

girl next door
Every guy may have his specific girl-next-door prototype, but in general, she's the girl whom you always admired from afar and were afraid to approach, fearing that any erotic projection toward her would ruin her image as a decent, pure and almost virginal womanly ideal.

She's (in your mind at least) untrodden ground; unspoiled by other men and so sweet-natured it almost frightens you to think of her in explicit sexual situations. Almost. Here's another example: Picture your sister's best friend from when you were kids. In your mind she'll always be that 10-year-old cutie who played with you in the park. Only, when you catch up with her 10 years later, she's still a cutie, but all grown up and someone you can trust and connect with on so many new levels. The intrigue grows.

Similarly, she could be a friend's cousin whom you met at family occasions over the years. Or even a new employee at work who is shy and unassuming, but still gives you that "she seems so nice, I'd love to talk to her" feeling.
Think of Renee Zellweger's character in Jerry Maguire
So I am not the only one annoyed by these 4-Chan Memorial High School essays that seem to inundate every Urban Dictionary search these days, am I? This is just one of innumerable examples of this sort of run-on, stream of consciousness definitions from someone who is clearly terminally online.

Asking for pronouns, wearing lanyards and badges, is not, by any stretch, "friendly". Nor do most have a clue (nor want one) as to what these ostentatious demonstrations of marble-loss signify. If my pronouns are requested, an immediate complaint will be lodged.

You can really feel the double X chromosomes. It's like the thread count in sheets.

(Note: I'm assuming this is some gender essentialist nonsense)

There are two possibilities that make any sort of sense here: moisturizer and hair.

Yes. These sorts provide the perfect hubristic grist for this content mill

Or a run-of-the-mill serial killer.

We can't rule it out!

Meanwhile,
You literally used a far-right new site as a source
I didn't know that. It was just an article I saw, didn't even read it
[time passes]
I didn't cite the article, or link it. It was just a screenshot of the headline, to make a point. That is all.
