into the Grand Canyon than what is happening in Gaza.
I guess I have a bunch of American family though. That might influence it.
all my Facebook posts accurately reflect the things that are most important to me, with no margin for error. It's why most of my posts are just about being glad my respiratory system is still working.
And this is the first I've heard of it.
p.s. that squirrel video is sad :(
Those frogs were making a point, bro!
vs. French bloke murdering a furry animal.
One does lend itself to condensed social media 'outrage' slightly more.
I mean, so is the Gaza conflict but the squirrel thing doesn't need any context.
And one of his friends wrote, unironically, "this certainly puts the situation in Gaza into perspective"
I completely empathised. I can not empathy Palestine.
with the very, very minor iced coffee crisis in Gaza
I do not want to see. Also comparing tradgedies/outrages etc is fucking dumb. Yours
Of not posting about either the squirrel or Gaza.
God, facebook is mundane.
maybe i need to get more friends
The ongoing factional wars in Congo that are a direct continuation (despite peace treaty & 'democratic' elections) of the 2nd Congo War (1998 - 2003) when taken in concert have accounted for between 5 & 6.5million deaths - more than Vietnam
So it goes
you might engage with (in a non-trolly way on both our parts).
And countless armed factions and warlords
why arent I an internet celebirty?
you're MSBH or one of them again. I thought you were alright.

Anyone who fed this squirrel previously and made it lose it's fear of humans is just as guilty as the guy kicking it off the canyon. Do not feed wild animals. It is abuse.
that I'm someone else. Sure, I posted this thread to make a discussion, but it's not 'trolling' or whatever you guys seem to think.
'in_limbo' is someone who posts on here, I was asking if you were him
I thought you were talking about the end of Lost or some junk. No way, I don't know who he is.
And his name is confrontedbybears
There'll be a snide one-liner from the guy underneath one of my posts, but I don't mind him really. I like to think we've kept each other company on some long, cold nights.
This account is doomed to fail.
where nobody had even noticed the poster's previous account, and thus were just confused when she was outed.
is there someone else on here who posts like me?
Virago was EVERYWHERE. Who the fuck never noticed her?
massive anticlimax when it came out iirc.
couldn't find anything conclusive but did find a good thread where meo absolutely did me and also apparently DF and HoFo were banging on tinychat? D=
(would like to point out here that "in on it" refer's to DF's identity, not tinychat banging)
'good work virago' once. That was good.
This was in my motorbike days so it was okay.
Do you ever have Leeds meet ups?
On DiS no-one can hear you scream
Thinking about making a party like you guys had in London.
the Gaza situation. Doesn't matter what you post about that, you'll end up arguing with someone. I've read tons about it and honestly, I still don't fully understand what is going on there.
are there any manchester dissers who aren't a little bit... nuts?
It feels like you're accusing the fellow of not being entirely truthful in what he posts.
just a totally unrelated question...
Scout is lovely.
Does she even still post tho?
So it might have got a black eye but it would've probably floated down to the canyon floor unharmed. Probably loads of nuts that have rolled down there from clumsy tourists as well.
I haven't seen the video.
as the Israel thread has got in about three weeks. so by my calculations it's about 336 times more important to DiSsers in general than the situation in Gaza.
we were just talking about you :)
It's a lot easier to talk about than Gaza
Doesn't make it more important
is the most accurate measure of how important they are, to a particular subset of the population anyway.
Just admit it, you're part of a community where squirrel-kicking is more important than possible genocide, and you love it.
Family for instance, is often the most important thing to most people. But they're not constantly talking about it.
But it's not because populist issues and general chit chat are fun to talk about in the short term despite being less important
guessing who seafoodweregreat is > in_limbo > squirrel-kicking > genocide
A lot of people are put off by the whole Israel/Palestine thing as an issue to debate.
It's not something I've talked about here, but I've thought about it way more than I do about the content of other threads.
If people appear uninterested, it's going to be squirrel-kicking Frenchmen first on the next G8 agenda, and Gaza given a five-minute slot a few items down from loom bands.
I mean unless we start taking to the streets in our thousands in protest of the squirrel thing because it having a spike of popularity online
Popularity =/= passion and conviction
And he's not really a troll.
The latter now being seen the reserve of embarrassing white guys with dreads and angry secondary school teachers in floral patterned wellies. There have been countless social media non-stories getting far more attention than weighty, life-and-death issues in recent years...
I live near there at the moment though.
instead of 'having' a party?
I spent a couple of years in Ohio as a baby too.
Mind this one time, right. I was stationed out in Belize, right, and I had this little macaque monkey as a pet, right? And one day, I came back to my tent, right, and it'd eaten all me fags!
So I picked it up and I threw it into the sea.
Stop being weird.
This looks cool https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_B4MeQUydg
It just looks like heaps of fun.
If they have already please let me know cheers.
Guess that leaves safebruv, who I'm pretty sure is Leeds-based now...
you shut up until someone gives it away
You guys need to grow up you really do.
able to comment on the squirrel.
Commenting on Gaza and such things can make others get angry and shout at other people
there is not just one source to blame, they havnt quite worked out what they should feel about Gaza yet.
Incidentally what one should feel about Gaza is
Yes Hamas may be cunts for mingling within a civilian population and firing rockets (relatively ineefectually) at another group, but you have to be a triple cunt to then use 'someone else being a cunt' as justification for then just shooting effective and devastating ordnance at through the human shields of children and civilians
£10,000 reward if you find them
saying that he should be kicked into the grand canyon as punishment. seems entirely reasonable and level-headed
GOD DAMN THIS IS REAL.
I guess what you guys are saying about it being easier to talk about it was probably right. I guess that's the end of this downdropper. Let it die bro's?
