Are ancaps actually real? I only ever hear about them on meme pages. Do they actually do anything off the internet?

I remember a few years ago they organised events to support bitcoin, and one Ancap who wandered onto the boards said something about a community in Cambodia.

Can't think of anything else really.

Oh and yesterday I came across this

Quote:
Grand Old Academy is a Japanese-style visual novel/dating sim inspired by contemporary American politics. Its tone is satirical, but lighthearted: it is a story about romance, friendship, and competition, not actual political issues. The only major difference from other visual novels is that all of the actors in this story happen to be politicians. Think “Hatoful Boyfriend,” but instead of pigeons, it’s Republicans.

Yes. That post Entdinlichgung just posted is fucking hilarious. And, I might add, a policy with which I completely concur.

Au contraire! From today's Guardian:

In this new world, now is the time to support fearless, independent journalism

We got the UK election wrong, we got Corbynism wrong, we've spent the last 20 years supporting a sort of mealy-mouthed Blairism while patronising working class people, and now we've gotten the US election wrong while outright slagging off working class Americans as irredeemable racists when it was mostly the well-off who voted him in. Give us money!

I thought that was actually a really sad article and photo, maybe it's just me. Poignant maybe rather than sad.

Funniest thing I heard was from an Anarchist on Twitter taking the piss out of the SWP tweeting
"Get your paper, were only two paper sales away from revolution!"

This comment on a book review of Socialism and Left Unity by Peter Taaffe made me laugh out loud

Come ll, Andy is right when he says “Hopefully this book will start a dialogue, and out of dialogue come better …”

Here is a proposal for the sequels of this book:
vol 2: a critique of the SWP by the AWL
vol 3: a critique of the AWL by the SP
vol 4: a critique of the SWP by PR
vol 5: a critique of PR by the SSP
vol 6: a critique of the SP by the AWL
vol 7: a critique of the SWP by the CPGB
vol 8: a critique of the AWL by the AWL

and don’t forget

vol 125: a bitching of all the above by the Sparts"

As usual I did not read it but it made me smile that Tescos Christmas advert is basically promoting Christmas as a feat of endurance. The world is so f***ed.

"Previous studies had presented women with 2D, flaccid penises, so this is the first research to provide hard evidence that women’s ideal penises are slightly larger than average penis size."

Draft Constitution of the World Union of Soviet Socialist Republics by the guy who calls himself Communist International (Stalinist-Hoxhaists)

A successful investment banker parked his brand new Porsche in front of the office, ready to show it off to his colleagues. As he got out, a bus came along and completely tore off the driver's side. The banker immediately whipped out his phone and dialed 911. It wasn't more than 5 minutes before a policeman pulled up.

Before the policeman had a chance to ask any questions, the banker started screaming how his car, which he just picked up that day, was completely ruined and would never be the same again.

After the banker finally finished his rant, the policeman shook his head in disbelief.
"I can't believe how materialistic you finance guys are," he said "You're so focused on your possessions, you don't care about anything else!"

"How can you say that?" asked the banker, angrily.

The policeman replied, "Didn't you realize that your left arm is missing from your elbow down? It's been completely torn off from when the truck hit you!"

The banker looked down in absolute horror.

"Fucking Hell!" he screamed... "Where's my Rolex!?"

That's always been one of my favorite jokes.

I've had that video dropped on my social media. Absolutely the funniest thing I saw today. What larks, couldn't stop laughing, nothing quite as funny and entertaining as someone being shot to death.

Really, what the fuck? I really doesn't matter who was killed, who the assassin is, or what the motivation for the assassination was but if you find footage of someone unloading a gun into someone until they're dead funny, it makes you a bit of a sick fuck. I know the youtube footage was taken down but you might want to consider that other people don't have the same sense of humour about watching someone get murdered as you do.
