You don't know what newtonian means, do you?

Whenever a place sinks into the #NeverTrump pit of stupidity, it never crawls back out.

Trump won because the left forgot how to argue rationally, and Trump knew how to make his supporters feel smart for not believing the paranoid moronic more-biased-every-day media. Trump outsmarted every leftist on the planet. At this point, he deserves America, and if he turns out to be half as bad as the libtards say he's going to be, he'll be kicked out in seconds. So why care? Why try to work people up into a paranoid frenzy, when that's failed once before and it'll fail again and again until the left learns how to admit its many flaws and mistakes and learn from them?

What is Feminism doing here? What are we, the Rationalists, or the Irrationalists?

Chapter two is up. Would you like to read it, or would you like to giggle about your Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup fantasies?

What situation? He had that under control. That kid's head merging with his ass? Might as well throw subtlety out the window and state it directly: JOJO'S STAND DID THAT.

What?

This is JJBA, not Powerpuff Girls. You'd know this if you noticed that this story's Jojo is a good guy.

And that is justified in canon. Jonathan Joestar-Summers has a Stand, you'll see it soon.

No, really, what?

What "Different rules" could someone use to decide what to believe, besides "Because logic and science say so"? "Because my God said so"? "Because these tea leaves said so"?

Inspired by HPMOR. After his wife died in a carriage crash, George Joestar remarried himself to a bright young author hiding her works under a pen name, and their son grew up with a taste for literature and the strength of mind necessary for a Stand. Then came his research on the Stone Mask, and a world of intriguing new possibilities to exploit.

I read it.

Which is better, rationalreads.com or rationalfiction.io?

It kinda is, isn't it?

It would make more sense if C-sections were better. After all, nature is notoriously irrational and inefficient.

Interest Check - HPMOR inspired me to try and write a Rational fanfic. I've decided to rationalize Jojo's Bizarre Adventure. Where should I publish this work?

Thank you.

Quite right! Who even came up with "Don't shave yaks"? It sounds like something someone too lazy to shave some damn yaks and get the problem fixed would invent to justify not solving the problem!

I've decided I'm going to write... Rational Jojo's Bizarre Adventure.

The wiki said I need more karma to post outside of this thread.

Comment by snowsage4444 on I Want To Live In A Baugruppe · 2017-03-17T16:42:30.245Z · LW · GW

That sounds wonderful. I've lived alone almost my whole life... It'd be nice to have a family.

This is what happens when you believe feminism.

Still, I must give the "Scientists" credit for actually admitting when they were wrong. Of course, if they didn't, audiences would have said it for them.

Am I meant to post my fanfic on Fanfiction.Net or Archive of our own?

Feminist thought: "Men have power and that's sexist. Smash the patriarchy!"

Anti-Feminist thought: "Feminism has too many bad eggs".

Feminist thought: "You can't say that, you racist sexist bigoted bigot!"

What's up? I've read up to chapter 40 of HPMOR, and I thought I'd try talking on its forum.
