Zimmerman is selling the gun he used. Shocked

Note: Clicking the link below will take you an auction site with pictures of the weapon along with a write up from George himself describing it which I'm pretty sure is going to cause a lot of people's blood to boil when they read it.

"Item Condition - Used"

pretty much literally everything zimmerman has done since he created an altercation with a black kid and then shot him when he started losing has done wonders in terms of forcing his supporters into impressively vacuous cognitive dissonance methods to resolve that their hero is a vile abyss of burning shit, constantly doing and saying more vile indefensible shit

Sorry, but the item you have requested is no longer in the system.


wonder if that means they got sufficient shit to take it down, or if he sold it....

I heard he'd used the site for publicity and then sold the gun to a private buyer.

One of these days, one of these cute little 'publicity' stunts is going to backfire.

Quote:
I have suicidal depression.

That’s not a great opening line, and it’s not something I enjoy talking about, but it's an important piece of who I am. From the age of 16 onward, depression led me to slowly curl in upon myself until the idea of leaving the house left me pressed into the corner of my room, shaking.

Most of what happened to me over the last 10 years was never seen by others because I made damn sure that it stayed hidden. But things leak out. There was the time my girlfriend came up to visit me (quite how I managed to maintain a relationship at all is a genuine enigma to me even now), and as we squeezed into my single bed, she slid her hand under the pillow—and froze.

“Why do you have a knife?” she asked me, understandably alarmed.

Oh, yay, its a new video from Vihart. Surely this will not be the slightest bit depressing.

Spoiler alert; at one point she scrolls through 250+ comments from stalkers asking her to marry them.

You know how when you're smashing through the windshield of a car you've just wrecked, you always find your mind wandering to the same thing: how would my body be different if humans evolved to deal with this sort of thing better? Then you hit the pavement and everything goes black. Luckily, the Traffic Accident Commission of Melbourne, Australia has an answer for you:

Freaky but informative.

Yes it's a cartoon for kids. Yes it's North Korean propaganda. Yes it's furry creatures. But for some peculiar reason, I actually want to see this entire series unabridged:

I should probably take more meds.

Korean propaganda for the grown ups:

I don't see South Carolina on either top of or bottom of list, I guess we have too many retirees to generate unusually high/low amounts of hatetweets.

On the other hand, perusing the summary and their methods paper, I don't see them controlling for tweets per capita, just per 100K tweets. Wonder if that would change the picture any. For example, North Dakota is very low on the hatetweet rankings (yay!) but then again that particular Dakota's landscape really isn't speckled with roiling metropoles of surging human headcounts.

I noticed ND ranked a little bit higher on the "used non-deragatory terms" list... which also makes me wonder if this isnt North Dakota nice coming in to play. Its considered "rude" to say slurs, but people talk shit without them all the time.

Could be. I'm wondering why Wisconsin is so actually nice. Unless they have more subtle ways of talking.
