#82 Manchester concert explosion in World Events
loot30 year war was a franco-habsburg conflict, not a religious conflict. By your logic, literally every battle in europe ever was christian violence because europeans were christian

So what you're saying is the Thirty Years War may have been started and fought by people citing scripture as their motivation for killing non-believers, but when you examine the geopolitcal, social and historical forces at work you can't attribute the violence solely to Christianity? Huh, sounds like a nuanced opinion. Please explain why this reasoning cannot be applied to Islam?

Also, lmao at

lootBy your logic, literally every battle in europe ever was christian violence because europeans were christian

Followed by

loot No matter to what degree of insanity you try to stretch reality, Christians will never ever have killed even a miniscule percentage of people that Muslims have, despite being the much older religion

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I give up.

lootNone of those are "large-scale Christian violence"

An estimated 25-40% of the population of Germany died during the series of religious conflicts known as the 30 years war. Total death toll is estimated at 7,500,000. U r dumb.

lootThere is a timeline across the top cropped off, it says 1260 on the right

nice retarded snark attempt though, maybe your teacher will give you an A this time

Crusades didn't end in 1260, which I guess explains why the vast majority of the battles that should be on this map are missing ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

lootBarryChuckle Christians no longer participate in large-scale religious violence.
They never did, the crusades were a counteroffensive after the muslim conquests & the absolute highest death count I've ever seen estimated for them is still only 1% of the historical bodycount from muslims even though they lasted 200 years

Fml. Have you heard of the 30 years war? The pogroms? The Inquisition? The Northern Crusades? The hussite wars? The Albigensian Crusades? The Reformation? These are just off the top of my head, I'm sure there are countless other historical examples.

Also, since you seem to be using that image to demonstrate a point, that "crusade battles" map appears to be dated 1090, which is before the first Crusade even started so fuck knows where they got their information from. I can also tell off the top of my head (being an EU4 and CK2 nerd) that it's missing the Battle of Varna and the sack of Constantinople.

konrIf you weren't doing that then why would you point towards a different religion like you did there? If it wasn't whataboutism? Enlighten me.

My point isn't "hurr durr what about the bible, Christians r just as bad." My point is actually the opposite. Christians no longer participate in large-scale religious violence. So there must be something else at work here OTHER than the religious text.
I'm suggesting that if there is a solution to the problem, it's not going to be found by criticising the Qu'ran, or banning the Qu'ran, or burning the Qu'ran, or banning Islam. Because, short of wide-scale genocide, criticising or banning religious texts has never worked. People are still going to read and worship and choose to believe their dumb shit.

IMO unless people want the violence to continue for another 1000 years we're going to have to approach this in a more nuanced way.
But that's never going to happen when you have one side refusing to awknowledge there even is a problem and screaming ISLAMOPHOBIA, and the other side refusing to awknowledge "an eye for an eye" isn't a solution and screaming CUCKS and VIRTUE SIGNALLERS.

I didn't say Islam is exempt from criticism. I don't have bad taste in my mouth from you criticising Islam. I didn't employ any whataboutism and I didn't mention Islamaphobia. Infact, as a bisexual atheist I have an extreme problem with a belief system that advocates beheading me or throwing me from rooftops because of who I am. But good job on knocking down that strawman you set up.

Konr m8 you realise the Bible is also full of heinous, contradictory, warmongering, gay-hating, heathen-stoning backwards shit right? Yet you don't have religious Christian extremists committing these acts of terror today. What people are suggesting is that there are perhaps cultural, social, economic, historical and geopolitical factors at work here. Perhaps the reasons for this shit, and therefore the solutions to it, are slightly more nuanced than "Islam = bad, Quran = bad."

#31 UK Voters: Register to vote you fucks in World Events

My constituency (Wantage) had a conservative majority of over 20,000 in the last election. It is the safest of safe seats. Once again I will go to the polls and once again my vote will be discarded and ignored, along with the votes of tens of millions of other British people who do not have the luxury of living in a marginal constituency. Electoral reform is not a matter of preference but a matter of universal suffrage.

We are on course for a massive, unchallengeable Tory majority with zero checks and balances based off less than half of the actual vote.

We already have two houses of parliament. It would be so simple to make one house (preferably the commons) follow proportional representation while keeping the parliamentary constituencies represented in the second house (preferably what is now the 'lords'). But no. Instead we have this bizarre archaic system where the lower house is grossly disproportionate to the actual vote, and an upper house that consists of a weird undemocratic mix of old nobility and newly appointed political cronies. And on the rare occasion it tries to assert itself and refuses to just rubber-stamp questionable legislation it is threatened with being dissolved becasue it has no democratic mandate. GIVE IT A DEMOCRATIC MANDATE THEN.

(edit: added some stuff about reform)

#93 worst pain you've ever felt in Off Topic

Lumbar puncture. I've had a lot of cuts and sprains, a few broken bones and even kidney stones in the past but nothing even comes close. It was so painful I didn't even recognise the sensation as pain at first. Super weird and intensely agonising. It was a junior doctor as well so they were rooting around for quite a while, kept scraping the shit out of the periosteum with the needle.

#121 Ban the crossbow in TF2 General Discussion

imo it should deal consistent enemy damage of around 40 instead of the current high damage at range mechanic. Also need to get rid of the uber building mechanic as others have said. Maybe even cap the max amount it heals for at around 80 and I still think every medic would run it 100% of the time.

#140 Mass shooting in Orlando in Off Topic
SpaceCadetAs people walk around inside a gunshow, some of them are carrying Rifles on their shoulders, or other types of guns, with price tags attached for all to see as they go from table to table. Selling the Rifle itself is not illegal in this fashion but once you express interest in the gun, he may ask you if you want to buy more. Then you go to his truck and he opens up his arsenal for sale. This quickly turns illegal but nobody asks any questions because guns are all over and its a fucking gunshow right?

There you have it, you just bought your first AK-47 and nobody at all knows you have it.

Holy dooley that's ridiculous. What I don't understand is: almost everyone I've talked with, even people like you who are pro-gun ownership, seem to agree that it needs to be HEAVILY controlled with background checks and getting rid of dumb loopholes like this. So the question is: why aren't these regulations enforced? Why is it almost effortless to buy an automatic weapon in some states? If both sides agree somethign needs to be done, why isn't it being done :/
