#66 What's your strangest excuse for losing a match in TF2 General Discussion
coyo_geezerin mid one of my players just disappeared and one was literally homeless so had to play with 2 subs for playoffs, lost a grueling 3+2gc map series vs the team that went on to win the div :[

also for our first official that season one of my players spilt beer all over his keyboard during our pregame -___-

This isn't really related to the thread, but through a lot of spilt beers and glasses of water, roughly 4 years ago I figured out that it happens 90% less if at all, if you always keep the beer/glass on the left side of your left(or on the outer side of your keyboard) hand.

Never keep the drink in between your hands. It's the demonic spirits possessing each of us that manipulate us to place the liquid holding objects between our keyboard and mouse hand, and satanic results, such as spilling it on your keyboard or mouse pad is bound to happen.

#37 May I ask talk about the current pandemic? in World Events
MoermanI don't even know what to think of the whole vax situation.

It takes trust in your government and in the science of your country and others, to actually go and take the vaccine.
I come from a country where politicians are trustworthy and respectable enough for me not to doubt too much and take the vaccine.
We come from places all around the world with very different leadership and mindset of the politicians, it makes me respect people who are not too eager to take the vaccine.

But in defense of some dumb political statements troughout the pandemic.
New rules, overlapping rules and contradicting rules are just caused by this new worldspread virus with dozens of variants that no one really knows everything about till this day.
Shoutout to the virologists in 2020 arguing on live tv in Belgium

Here it seems like more and more corruption within the politicians and officials keep unveiling. And our country is supposed to be one of the least corrupted ones in the World.

#36 May I ask talk about the current pandemic? in World Events

Well I'll just try to phrase my thoughts more compactly. We are already in a very surveilled world with cameras all around us. We are already accustomed to having a device in our pockets that tracks our location, has a microphone and a camera where ever we go. Kids born in this century have no clue what privacy is, everything since their birth is on the internet, on social media platforms. All our data is just taken from us and sold. No shit right? I didn't think anything of it when I was younger.

I think you understand where I'm coming from with my worries? Why would someone want to control all the people? Why does Xi Jinping look like Winnie the Pooh and (allegedly) enjoy power and (allegedly) run a communistic and from what it looks like, quite a fucked up surveillance state where people can't think freely? Why is the sky blue? Why is my toaster hearing voices? These are all important questions. Power corrupts people. It's just now we have the conditions and tools for a really nasty development into something scary. Of course it doesn't immediately mean that's the case.

But I'm most likely in the wrong here. I guess we just take the bet and trust our governments. I know the current technology is so useful and has great potential for good but also bad. Many people(me included) are pretty clued to these screens, constant stimulation, entertainment and worse yet, TF2. Not that people many think that much about these things. The circumstances are pretty ideal for power hungry governments to slowly plan something behind us, if so desired. Development into a totalitarian society doesn't happen overnight. Step by step.

End of thread I guess. I admit my arguments on this topic have been very flawed and need a lot of reconsideration. I appreciate the answers.

Edit: well I mean our data is not necessarily taken, we just more or less consciously give it away but w/e

DomoCatFaceTLDR puo:

It's good to be skeptical of everything you read and hear in life, but don't let skepticism blind you from what people can actually prove to be true vs what people claim to be true. Be free flowing with your opinions and beliefs given the evidence on the day.

Of course, I may have simply come down to wrong conclusions about this. The situation we currently have gets people mixed up, it's difficult for all of us. I might have been in the wrong here on this subject and I can admit it. I might have overreacted. I understand the situation is serious but also I'm afraid about governments abusing the power they've gained even after the pandemic fades. There's also been so much mixed up information in the news about most of the things here it gets hard to figure out what's going on.

In cases what b3ar presented, I can in some way understand the pass but not in here. But I'm grateful I could at least have a discussion here, so I can actually adjust my thinking, in case it's way off. I guess it's just an enormous red flag for me when censorship gets presented globally in a way like this.

I understand why it may seem necessary but personally, I'm just entirely against censorship. I don't think anything good ever comes out of it. I'm aware many people are very stuck within their thoughts and beliefs but no matter what, I think people should be allowed to present their opinions and have free discussion because no one is perfect. The beliefs come from somewhere and I think people need the chance to present their opinions, even if they are invalid, because the opinions won't change even if you make it illegal to present them. Things are simply evolving so quickly into a direction that has been worrying me.

edit: my point with the censorship was that I think people need to be allowed to express their thoughts and opinions, simply because people can evolve their thinking only if there's open discussion like we have here.

DomoCatFacePuoskariIf the vaccine's function mainly is to protect from the severe effects, and it doesn't necessarily stop spreading the virusDon't think it's correct to say it doesn't stop the spread of the disease - at least that isn't the current census. I've just googled the question and found this statement in 30 seconds.

Two studies1,2 from Israel, posted as preprints on 16 July, find that two doses of the vaccine made by pharmaceutical company Pfizer, based in New York City, and biotechnology company BioNTech, based in Mainz, Germany, are 81% effective at preventing SARS-CoV-2 infections. And vaccinated people who do get infected are up to 78% less likely to spread the virus to household members than are unvaccinated people. Overall, this adds up to very high protection against transmission, say researchers.

Alright, then I've probably jumped into a wrong conclusion based on mixed information our mainstream media has been saying. The news have been very mixed up here through out the year though regarding a lot of things related to this.

bearodactylTo add to what domo and 4hp have said the protection against severe symptoms is the part that is nearly guaranteed (link with statistics of different vaccines, 100% against severe disease defined by the CDC and 95% defined by FDA. Even the new study that brought the efficacy down from 95% to 84% after 6 months still had the efficacy against severe disease at 97%. It is by no means 'only' for protecting ones self, hence the reason governments all over the world are pushing for people to get vaccinated to stop widespread cases, but the reduction in hospitalization obviously is a huge bonus as well as we all know hospitals all over the world were completely full pre-vaccine.

I'm not sure if the vaccine cards are the right way to do it as, at least in the us, it disproportionately affects black communities which are understandably skeptical of vaccines after the horrendous 'human experimentation' with syphilis. However, if it leads to more people getting vaccinated and stop the second wave with delta variant I can definitely see the reason they are doing it. NYC for example was fucking ravaged by covid so it's totally fair they're being extra cautious now imo

Yeah I'm aware of the protection it gives from severe disease, I'm not opposing vaccinating people who belong in the group that's at risk of getting it which are mainly older people. Mainly children, to whom so far the disease hasn't seem to been as dangerous, I'm not sure if it's a good idea. Here we have started vaccinating children between 12-17. I'm not sure how's it going around the world but I think it could be a good idea to at least wait a bit before starting vaccinating children. I understand the issue though if not enough people who belong to the risk group aren't getting the shot, the hospitals could overflow.

StylaxI think discussion on it should be allowed, as it should on pretty much any topic. I also think it's fair that people are skeptical about the vaccine given its short testing period and that some people think the risks don't justify the means.

But at the same time, the reality of being a person is that you play by the rules of the governments. Their laws. You can protest and try change them, but in the main that's how the world works so not much we can do.

Sure we have to play by governments rules, but we also have to draw lines. In the end it's up to people whether they allow governments fucking them over or not. Say if step by step we'd be starting to slip into a dystopian kind of society, where we'd have no rights, we'd all be total slaves with a few people controlling our lives entirely, it just happens and we let it?

4hp* vaccine benefits are higher than the risks for most people. Young people aren't being given AZ/Janssen which are the most concerning ones regarding coagulation problems etc. Pfizer/Moderna are essentially safe with the best results.

* vaccine does NOT stop you from contracting covid or giving it to others. what it does is mitigate the possibility of severe symptoms. In the Netherlands where the vaccination process is very advanced, there have been case spikes over the past few weeks but with no significant increase in deaths .

* in my personal opinion, you should still wear masks in public places, but up to you. KN-95 masks offer decent protection, surgical masks are more to protect others, but if everyone is masked up in one location, you should be fine. Cloth masks are not good enough.

Overall it's a risk/benefit situation that we're looking at here. You are entitled to be concerned with the vaccine's long term effects, since it's clear that a lot of the steps usually taken to implement a new vaccine haven't been taken here due to time constraints. But Covid's long term effects are nothing to laugh about either, just google 'long covid' and you will see my point. I personally see it as a necessary risk, and hope that over the next few years the research will continue so we reach a point where the vaccine is safer and more effective than it is now.

Yeah. I just find the vaccine passes very questionable. I still think you should be allowed to decide yourself whether or not to get vaccinated. If the vaccine's function mainly is to protect from the severe effects, and it doesn't necessarily stop spreading the virus, I find it weird that we're introducing passes which won't make the vaccine mandatory on paper, only if you want to participate in society in any way.

In the end, we don't know yet whether the vaccine could have severe or unpredictable side effects in 1 or 2 years. If you don't get any sort of promising immunity from the vaccine so far, then I'd prefer not to introduce a covid pass and keep the shot voluntary. I do get your point though, and I'm not arguing against vaccinating people who are at greater risk of getting severe effects.

If this topic is against the rules of this platform, then remove the post. I know this isn't necessarily the best place to talk about this but every major social media platform sensors all discussion related to this.

For the past 1,5 years I have been very worried with where we seem to be going with this pandemic. I'm not saying anything for certain, but to me it looks a lot like all that's going on has nothing to do with our safety. It makes me confused that we seem to currently live in a world, where there is only one scientific truth, a fact, that absolutely cannot be questioned. Even medical professionals, virologists etc. get sensored if their opinion on this pandemic and how it is handled opposes the prevailing consensus. I'm really worried, how people are now just giving away their rights with no questions and we slowly seem to be heading into a global totalitaristic surveillance state. Once you give your rights away, you may never get them back.

Some people(tinfoil people) in the beginning of 2020 already told that this has nothing to do with our safety, but with control. They told that there will eventually be obligatory injections and passes including them. That eventually you will have to take an experimental shot to be able participate in society, to enter stores, to go to the gym, to go to work etc. Some of these people told beforehand, that even though authorities assure that once 70% have been shot up, we can go back to normal, that it won't stop at that. Facemasks, safety distances, and all other restrictions continue still. That this will be the New Normal. And this is how it so far is.

So if I may, I'd like to ask a couple questions.

Why can you not discuss this pandemic, the shots, or the effects of these restrictions on people and children at all? Since when has science found absolute facts, truths and theories, that no longer can't questioned at all? At least the little I've read about philosophy, being able to question everything is one of the major rules of science. Right now this isn't possible.

Why must people now take this experimental shot that surely doesn't seem to give immunity to the virus to travel into some countries? If you can receive and transit the virus even with the jab, then why? You can fly anywhere with the shot and still bring the "variants" with you, but the only difference is that now you can't just travel without the shot.

Why aren't we only injecting the elderly and those who are at risk to have very severe effects from the virus? Why are we pushing the injections onto children? At least in Finland, not a single under 30-year old have died due to this, and afaik not many have had to go to ICU.

Who will take responsibility if theres serious repercussions with the shot? Vaccine companies aren't liable for damages.

In some areas here, we've had more people in the hospital who had had the first shot(60% according to the media), than without one. We are talking here about the need of at least 3 shots to be protected from serious condition related to the virus but no promises of immunity. So we were originally promised that we'd go back to normal after 70% takes the shot. Now we're talking that actually these restrictions will still go on.

Here THL(our equivalent of CDC which directly is taking directives from WHO) admits, that it doesn't matter what the reason of death is, if you die within a month after a positive test result, you'll be counted as a covid related death. In total we have 993 covid-related deaths in Finland and over 2000 serious adverse effect reports from jabs, at least 100 of which are vaccine-related deaths.(It is also estimated that only around 10% of adverse effects are reported, and since it's assured this shot is safe, people don't often consider that their ill-effects might be related to the shot.) Although, for some reason recently, the official site here(Fimea) handling the vaccine injury reports have removed the actual numbers related to deaths and just reports the total amount of serious adverse effect reports where the the deaths are included. Now even though it's only 2000 serious adverse effects from 3,77 million shots, it's still more than 10 times than what we had with the swine flu-shot in 2009-2010(and then THL called to immediately stop the injections) Now they've been quiet.

There has not been a single point at least here, where hospitals or ICUs have been overwhelmed, yet we still have restrictions that have major negative effects on restaurants etc. I'm not entirely sure of the rest of the world so I won't make any conclusions based on this fact.

Why is mainstream media quiet about all these huges protests related to these restrictions? Unless I'm wrong, french people aren't exactly very happy about the recently introduced covid pass, but even with a shitton of people protesting on the streets their government doesn't give a shit. They are also considering the pass here, which I'm not very fond of.

So far everything I've been worried about since the beginning has happened. And I don't think this current development into a very dystopian looking world is going to stop any time soon, as long as we accept it. But of course I hope I am just wrong about all of this.

Whatever the situation is, I hope everyone is safe and making it through these difficult times we live in.
E: whoops fucked up the title.

#1 A poem by yours truly in TF2 General Discussion

Do you like to ask questions? Well you should be ashamed.
Slaves didn’t build pyramids.
These bloodlines like Rockefeller, Rothschilds, sure they want to help humanity.
Who funds wars?
Everything you were taught is a lie.
Schools are for programming people into sheep who externalize their ability to think to authorities.
This is an information war.
I love it when big corporations like Facebook, Twitter and Google dominate the internet and can decide what is misinformation and what you can see and discuss on the Internet. They know better.
I love censorship so much I’m getting hard thinking about it.
Every healthy society needs some dope ass censorship.
Question official narrative? Nope, get your ass censored. HATESPEECH
6 corporations own over 90% of all the media in the world. Whoa, so many alternatives!!
Mainstream media is fake news. Totally not biased, what makes you think so??
Media is for fear based mind control.
CIA – Operation Mockingbird is still running.
Who put subliminal messages in all the Disney movies? Why?
Divide and rule. What? Is someone trying to divide us people up and distract us?? NOOOOO (send help)
Is this world run by satanic elite?
New World Order is a meme.
China? That’s the blueprint for every western society. We don’t go there overnight, but step by step.
Slaves wore facemasks, remember to wear yours, cuz it's the new normal.
We are multidimensional beings of light.
Are you hypnotized? How about u wake up

Shoutout to AMS for picking me up to play in premiership based on a couple of pugs he played against me and despite the fact I had only played for 5 seasons in total mainly in open and mid. I would've quit if it wasn't for him, and everything I've achieved afterwards is pretty much thanks to AMS.

#79 Tagg: Why I "Quit" TF2 in Videos

I'm just replying on the topic of toxicity more so than the contents of the video.

Toxicity isn't a unique trait in TF2 community so I don't think it's very clever to look at it at that specific angle. What can you do honestly? Why is there so much evil in the world that seems to be unstoppable? Why do people choose to be bitter and avenge in a never-ending cycle of suffering rather than forgive and move on? Why are we focusing more on what differentiates us from each other than what we have in common?

I'm not saying we shouldn't do anything, but we're not the first people in the history trying to figure out how to get along better with other people worldwide. Words are just words, we're responsible for our own feelings and whether they get hurt or not. We can try to limit freedom of speech, make having a certain opinion about something or saying something a punishable offence so that someone doesn't get hurt, but where does that get us?

I rarely hear people say they specifically enjoy playing with toxic people or that toxic behavior is approved by anyone in the community. Even if there are toxic circlejerks, well I mean who cares? If toxicity is what unites them, why not leave them suffocating in their negative bubble?

Now while I understand no one working in the production enjoys getting shit, they're still appreciated for doing very valuable work that no one complaining bothers to do. You're still at least trying to actually do something to keep the competitive scene going on while others complain and do nothing. Though in tf2 production crew you don't get paid so you can only wonder what motivates you. If Valve ever supported tf2's competitive scene, I think the people working on the production would be getting some reward on top of the shit they get.

I guess if you work on production you gotta ask yourself "Why am I doing this and is it worth it?" while we as a community might want to think of some sort of way to portray the gratitude toward these people who currently have to look at that question. How?
