  Oathkeeper chokes a alt-right member in Huston. Apparently what happened was the alt-cringers false-flagged themselves by spreading a bunch of rumors that anti-fascists were going to tear down a statue of Sam Huston in a attempt to get the antifa to show up and start a fight, but the only people who showed up were them and the oath keepers. The oathkeepers are now being decried as "boomer antifa."

Sam Houston opposed secession and was removed office by a pro-confederate coup. And despite being a slave owner he repeatedly opposed the expansion of slavery in the US when he was a senator. A odd choice for lost causers and neo-nazis to rally around.

  The drunkest country in the world?
I assumed that Russia was, but Vice news cites a 2004 WHO study that finds “Uganda as the top contender for per capita alcohol consumption in the world, making Uganda the drunkest place on earth.”

Uganda's Moonshine Epidemic https://youtu.be/zL3UHF5SlEU Ugandans are the hardest drinking Africans in the motherland, both in terms of per capita consumption and the hooch they choose to chug. Waregi, or "war gin," is what they call the local moonshine, and it makes the harshest Appalachian rotgut taste like freaking Bailey's.

Ugandans drink a lot, by African standards. Average per capita alcohol consumption is 11.93 liters per capita per year. That’s not as high as in Nigeria, where per capita consumption is 12.28 liters a year… which is especially impressive as nearly half of Nigeria’s population is Muslim, while less than an eighth of Uganda’s population is. So Uganda’s not the most drunken nation in Africa. And it’s not even in the running globally. Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, Hungary, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Korea, the UK and Ukraine all drink more per capita than Uganda. The most inebriated nation is Moldova, which at 18.22 liters per person per year, leaves Uganda in the dust. Uganda’s far closer to the UK, or to the US, which at 9.44 liters per capita, drinks 79% as much as Ugandans do per year. http://www.ethanzuckerman.com/blog/2012/11/09/hey-vice-your-documentary-is-bad-and-you-should-feel-bad/

>How do you estimate the prevalence of homebrew, moonshine, smuggled alcohol, surrogate alcohol etc. when calculating per capita alcohol consumption?
>every four houses outside of the cities have vodka distilleries
I'm pretty sure that some sort of distiller can be found in any large enough neighbourhood in rural area. They don't produce vodka, though, it's not an industrial thing. However, as far I am aware, the last time the average distiller was in use is probably around 15-20 years ago, if not in the time of prohibition 30 years ago. Consumption, naturally, has been dropping and evolving during recent years, along with improvement of living standards - vodka is no longer a popular drink any more. It's not as beofre cheap either.

Though, on the flip side, there's a problem with medical-use alcohol, some of which can be sold unregistered or unchecked, or even counterfeit. And there have been some incidents involving improperly produced liquids, with casualties. How do other countries manage and account consumption of "non-recreational" liquids? Back in the USSR alcohol was at some times more scarce then the others, thus a lot of legends of people actually drinking "everything that burns". The idea of "alcohol culture" as a "national treasure", which is supported widely on international level and by "independent" organizations, actually hurts the situation as much as social problems do. People have learned to fight it.

Obvious problem with WHO is that they try to account everything by one standard value, because practically it is impossible to use any other method on international scale. Every country has it's own management, laws, data manipulation, local traditions and so on. I have no idea how would any country account anything beyond simplest figures, if they don't have strong excise policy, monopoly on production or something like that. If that wasn't enough, there are even more "experts" and "empirical data" to be introduced to final figures. And then these numbers are introduced to news agencies, who are so unreliable, they can use legends, stereotypes and hopelessly obsolete data on regular basis.
>> No. 110093 ID: 334c17
>15-20 years ago
Well, maybe 10-15. The numbers on the graph is the amount of death caused directly by alcoholism (not by some wild speculation on domestic violence). Still, I'm not entirely sure this is true.

See, it is a simple idea, people used to say that overuse of alcohol kills hundreds of thousands every year, because they wanted more efforts to be diverted to "fighting alcoholism". And it did not work because nobody would believe them, even if (and when) they lie for the better principles. Also, there's common governmental practice of spending billions to solve some problem while really there's no effect in reality. Also there's commonly used principle that economically "useless" population should be able to get rid of itself by their own efforts, so that big business would save on social security. And so on - if you dig a bit deeper, it turns out that nobody REALLY is concerned about the problem the way they should be.

It is only a collective will of the people that can solve this stalemate, only personal responsibility that can lead a person from self-destruction, only a complex government strategy that can fix the situation where individuals drown their problems in the cup. No other fucking way ever works. Now those of you, kiddies, who din't know these simplest matters, can go on and whine about Russian hackers and immigrants and other first world problems, I won't bother you with explaining them in the same manner.

In Presidential elections, we have unusual recurring candidates like Vermin Supreme, but apparently the Brits have Lord Buckethead, an intergalactic space lord who looks like Darth Vader fucked an Amazon Echo and offers 'strong, not entirely stable, leadership.' for the United Kingdom.

Lord Buckethead of Kent won 249 votes and widespread acclaim across both traditional and social media when he stood against Theresa May in Maidenhead in Thursday night's snap general election. Dressed entirely in a Darth Vader-esque black costume topped off with an elongated bucket on his head, he pledged to nationalize Adele and abolish the Lords - "except me". Lord Buckethead seems unafraid to bring bold ideas to the table and tell it like it is to puny Earthlings of all stripes, like stop selling arms to Saudi Arabia and propose sensible alternatives, such as "Start buying lasers from Lord Buckethead". He has already shown an ability to compromise, proposing "a moratorium until 2022 on whether Birmingham should be converted into a star base". http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/lord-buckethead-brexit-negotiations-theresa-may-maidenhead-kent-last-week-tonight-john-oliver-dup-a7787126.html

  Lord Buckethead could have used the organization of the Silly Party apparatus to make a better showing in the election.
Election Night Special - Monty Python's Flying Circus https://youtu.be/kJVROcKFnBQ
In the lead up to the 2015 UK general election, Michael Palin suggested we add the 'Election Night Special' sketch to the channel, so here it is. The sketch, which was originally featured in Episode 19 of 'Monty Python's Flying Circus' and aired on November 3, 1970, parodies the coverage of the UK general elections, specifically the 1970 general election, on the BBC. The candidates include the 'Sensible Party', the 'Silly Party', the 'Slightly Silly Party' and the 'Very Silly Party'.

I would definitely take Tarquin Fin-Tim-Lim-Bim-Whin-Bim-Lim-Bus-Stop-F'tang-F'tang-Ole'-Biscuitbarrel over Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump any day.

  I just wanted to take a minute and thank this community for everything. Honestly, OPchan has been pretty important in my life since its inception. I discovered 4chan in 2006, migrated to OPchan in 2008 and at the time, it was pretty much my only tool to communicate to people in the outside world about my interests. Mainly because this was a time in my life where I was still being isolated and abused.

I know it may sound weird now, but I looked up to the more well adjusted members (and not so well adjusted lol) and would read their stories and how they responded to situations as a lesson for how I should. I was so maladjusted I was looking for the smallest cues to learn from. It was something to start off.

When I threw myself into the world and had no idea where to start at all, you guys were there to show me where to start.

You were there to listen to my heavily redacted emotional breakdowns. You were there to provide good solutions and support. You were a balance. On one side of the scale, the Twilight Zone meets The Hills Have Eyes meets It's Always Sunny that was my life. On the other side of the scale, hope for some sense of normalcy and happiness.

I've never loved myself, in fact most of my life I actively made myself suffer because I felt and believed I didn't deserve happiness, love, affection, or anything really. Plus I believed it builds character. I just focused on bare bones survival, really. It's not a good life.

I don't believe that anymore. I still feel it unfortunately, but I've been working hard at eradicating that feeling. I've been pushing myself to do new things, meet new people and just become well rounded. When people offer to do nice things for me or want me to join in on the fun, I fight the urge to run away and end up having an amazing time.

I'm sorry for rambling, it's just that my life is starting to pick up and is going good right now. I just really wanted to take a moment to tell you all how much I appreciate you. Seriously, my life would have been a much more tragic story had I not had a balance and that situation were to take its natural course.

<3 you guys.

Considering that I'd be working from the uphill end of the pipe, I'd potentially be blasting it with water and then trying to wet vac it back out or something. I haven't even been able to find the downhill end of the pipe.

Nope. Still just as clogged as it had been.

Neighbor lady's son-in-law pointed out this small hole in the bank of the creek and said that's where the pipe comes out. However, I dug it out a good foot and a half to two feet into the hillside and found no trace of pipe. So either he's wrong or it rusted away to literally nothing.

Supposedly, the county screwed up the creek when they put in a sewage line crossing the creek, through the path of the water, causing the level of the creek to rise a good foot or two, allowing the creek to block the exit of the drain pipe with mud.

I think it would be feasible to cut a ditch from about half to two-thirds the way from the wall to the creek, and just tear that section of pipe out and have the rest of it empty into the ditch. This should keep the end of the remaining pipe above the level of the creek. However, neighbor lady's daughter was having none of it. (Neighbor lady is 81, so not making many decisions for herself.) This situation has been going on forever, and they've basically just accepted it.

Supposedly, the family knows everyone in the county courthouse and several members are taskmasters (?) in some unintelligible local organization. So hooray there.

Son-in-law did confirm my suspicions that the basement flooding and the water that flows through the garage are the results of groundwater. Not sure if we could put in a pipe to try and collect it and direct it elsewhere, or how expensive doing that would be.

the NRA openly shilling for a known foreign pawn, thats what constitutes patriotism to them? and you expect these people to be your barrier between the bill of rights and tyranny?
save the AWB expiration, there was no progress of gun rights during the bush years either & for the same reason.

the sad part of this that guns are one thing that the whole republican party agrees on and could pass quickly with the help of the few reliably pro gun democrats. all that other tax & healthcare shit isn't going to go anywhere.

it used to be that some gun owners were upset with the NRA for being too pro-industry & not an actual gun owners rights organization (which is total bullshit, sometimes supporting the owners requires supporting the industry, life is complicated especially byzanitne to the mandarinth power DC politics)
now they're complaining that the industry isn't getting enough support? you can't have it both ways. part of why the NRA isn't as effective as it could be is lack of grassroots support, they really need you to reach out to your dudes & ask for legalized 20mm shit, lower fees, full auto, etc. or whatever the fuck it is you want changed. just paying the fee doesn't buy all that much in terms of the amount of cocaine & hookers required to make something happen in washington, they need further assistance.
