No. Feel free to draw wild conclusions from that.

I saw a college speech online by the Navy seal leader who killed Bin Laden.

He suggested people make their bed in the morning so they start the day with an early accomplishment.

It sounds like something they tell people who are in rehab or depression cases.

Have you ever been to rehab?

my mental health record is undoubtedly better than yours. haven't you checked yourself into a psych ward before? was it made of glass, by any chance?

i make my bed in the morning because it's a fucking civilised thing to do and gives me a chance to properly aerate and brush off my sheets. i don't know much about 'starting your day with an accomplishment' (what sort of achievement is it to spend 30 seconds on a bed?) but it does definitely benefit me to have an uncluttered room and living space; even more so because i work from home quite a lot. girls also appreciate it if they come around to your place and your room and apartment isn't a total fucking shithole. stop snogging autistic supply teachers in the provisions cupboard and become an adult, you dolt.

next week in 'adventures on macbeth's spectrum': do you guys, like, actually flush every time you go to the lavatory?

Wow a lot of really good points. Thank you for the feedback.

I keep my living space tidy as part of my respectability thing. I just don't see the point of a well made bed. I am going to mess it up every night anyway. Especially if I manage on a whim to lure an autistic substitute teacher back to my place.

How many blankets do you have?

Are you talking like "hospital corners made" or just "not a jumbled ball of crap"?

i’m not talking boot camp and starched linens. i mean i make my bed so it’s not a twisted jumble of sweaty sheets from the night before.

how many sheets do i have? depends so much on season and climate. i have a few different duvets with different tog ratings – if you have the right one you should only need one cover. but it hardly matters and is up to you.

an immense fuck-up and a welcome breath of relief for macron, i imagine, who has basically had a nation in a state of nonstop civil unrest for all of 2019.

what has the west actually blamed putin for that he didn't do?

influencing western elections? i think it's pretty obvious there are russian troll farms/black propaganda/misinformation units dedicated to sowing discord.
trying to poison ex-defectors and failing miserably? pretty cut-and-dry when anyone looks at the expert evidence.
shooting down passenger jets over ukraine? similarly pretty cut-and-dry when anyone looks at the expert evidence.

you act like the west considers putin to be some scary bogey-man figure who's responsible for all ills. hardly the case. more like we are weary about the third-world country on our doorstep who insist on demonstrating their bark/bite.

dude. why do you keep posting that crap? i thought we already discussed all of it and established that our views on what constitutes "expert evidence" differ radically, so what's the point in re-posting this bullshit again?

also there's this thing called "sarcasm", you know. and yes, from where i stand, it often looks a lot like those who direct your propaganda want you to  consider putin to be a scary bogey-man figure who's responsible for all ills. when it's not outright insane (skripal case) it's even entertaining sometimes.

why would so many people, from so many diverse agencies, from multiple countries, all collude to produce 'outright insane' conclusions in their reports?

who was paying the aviation authorities w/r/t the plane in ukraine?

very conspiratorial.

there's no need for a formal conspiracy when interests converge

right. god damn the nefarious plans of the dutch aviation safety board! their devilish proceeds!

i actually cannot believe how stupid you are. do you really think all these non-government organisations and their professionals are plotting with 'common interests' to frame russia? you do realise that, for e.g. with MH17, hundreds of innocent lives were taken? victims with families? who want answers, explanations ... justice? this isn't just some political football to be punted around by BBC/RT. but no, i guess every body is colluding to bully poor blameless russia.

as for the press, various leaks, the quality of 'investigative reporting', etc, etc.

so the original PDF was flattened for metadata/annotations purposes (wise).

it's searchable and indexed at NYT:
https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/201 … ument.html

the first few pages of the document summarise that "the Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election in sweeping and systematic fashion".

more conspiracy nuts, eh shahter?

you're like a content creator for badly shared forwarded emails from that one crazy uncle.  I can count on you to keep me updatedTM on what middle-aged podunk americans hate this week.
