Oh, that's like here when bogans want Khe Sanh as our anthem. Totally understood.

This is also why I agree with you in that discussing politics in person is way better, because you're not expected to have a link to support each of your points, if you get what I mean.
yeah, i agree. if you post a concise post saying why you feel why you do, you risk getting a ton of posts calling you a moron since you didn't link any sources or whatever.

since when is it about facts? when i post, i post my opinion. even in there. i never state my posts are fact, unless it's about me which is of course implied. unless i provide a link, which is rare. but i don't want to write a research paper every time i want to post in that forum. even to be less strawman about it, i don't want to troll the internet looking for a story or two (cuz god forbid you'd link to some news source that's not so reputable, how am i supposed to know what uk news sources are good and what aren't, i don't live there!) every time i post about something.

You know what Australia's national anthem should be? Waltzing Matilda. It's better than Advance Australia Fair!

The jokes from us Kiwis would be endless.

What cracked me up is that in Australia, some carparks will have special smaller carparks just for little cars, while in Franklin, the two main parking buildings had special parks for LARGE vehicles. Way to encourage people buying idiotic and inappropriate vehicles.
if by the obnoxious, noisy cars you mean like a coupe that sounds like shit, we get that here too. i just call those things shitboxes. they sound like they're falling apart. although to avoid sounding racist, it's usually blacks or hispanics driving them. and even though we have inspection here every year (memphis is horrible in terms of car pollution), most have expired tags because you know they failed inspection.

yet they pull people over for going 31 in a 30 zone

really? i've never seen separate lots anywhere around here (or nashville!) for larger cars. the closest i've ever seen, and i've seen this ever since i was a kid, is tiny ass spaces marked "compact cars only." the funny thing about that? i drive a compact and i'm not sure i'd want to park in one, but the hotel we always stay at in nashville has a spot designated as such, and there is ALWAYS an suv crammed in there. sure, you're really fucking compact.

Here's part of another post that would have gotten me suspended or worse. I won't give out the name of the thread this was supposed to be for, or who it's directed to but, rest assured, they deserved this. And I have nothing at all against atheists. Not a damn thing. But this guy was just trying to push my buttons for the sake of it:

Quote:
Yeah, you're an atheist. How fucking brilliant of you. I have a cookie nearby that you can have if you want it. But you're clearly not sharp enough to figure out that no one here really gives a damn what you think about anything, nor will we ever. Make no mistake, even if I were an atheist, this thread would be a complete waste of time and I would treat it as such.

I honestly don't see any bias in the current modding. yolland in particular is absolutely exceptional. Anybody who's calling the FYM modding biased is clearly somebody who knows they're in the wrong but can't admit it.

well sorry guys. the last mod i remember that was conservative was...fuck i forget his name. lol it just went out of my head! but it's someone who was demodded YEARS ago for being a shitty mod. and coincidentally, my ex got banned from the forums for calling said person a cunt although i don't want to dredge up old drama since neither person posts here anymore, i was just mentioning that that's the only conservative mod i can think of that we've ever had.
I don't suppose that was someone called Spanish Eyes or something like that? That's a wild stab in the dark, as I never knew them (so it fits with your "doesn't post anymore" thing), but I recall reading that they'd pushed for The Goal Is Soul and modded it initially, which possibly baseless stereotypes tell me would be far more likely to be done by someone on the right.

I think those people just qualify as racist fucks!
seriously. i look at it like this. the confederacy ceased to exist in 1865 when they lost the civil war. that's 143 years these rednecks have been going around with these dumb flags. i don't know if it's southern pride or what, but it's insulting to me because it's idiots like them that'll make us never be able to get past any intolerance (yeah i know calling them racist isn't tolerant either, lol), what with them walking around calling blacks niggers and such. or locking their doors if they see a black person standing on the street corner when they're at a traffic light. WHY YES, HE'S STANDING THERE BECAUSE HE'S WAITING TO CARJACK SOMEONE! AND HE WANTS ALL 500 OTHER CARS TO GET A GOOD LONG LOOK AT HIM SO THEY CAN BE YOUR EYEWITNESS!! dumbasses.

No, not quite like that. To me, a boganmobile is a fairly bulky car from the 1960s-70s with a loud motor, two exhausts, a bass-heavy soundsystem, and driven by a twat with a mullet drinking VB and singing along out-of-tune with AC/DC. The kind of dickheads who think it's real fucking cool and manly to do burnouts at the lights or whatever.

Typical. And yeah, if I remember correctly, it was the bottom level of the main parking buildings, they were set aside specifically for stupidly large vehicles. Idiots who buy SUVs to take their kids to school. Keeping in mind Franklin's an affluent town chock-full of idiots with too much money to spend on cars too big for practical use, I suppose it isn't a shock.

That's hysterical! I can hardly believe those even exist.

The people that shunned Obama in the polls today...I know them, and live among them. They have the worst accent imaginable and are indeed racist fucks by and large.
