Don't call it a spade


Maybe you can think of a different caption.

    Hey, I like the caption she provided to her own post.

    “Relish your own sacred experiences of travel, no two one is better or worse given the circumstances.”

    It sums up the modern millennial subjectivist mind nicely. It’s also retarded, and to such an extent that we can barely make sense of it. This is completely appropriate!

    if by being absorbed by her perceived aura of profundity and self-importance, yes that seem to be a feature of modernity . I wonder what Jordan Peterson’s opinion on this would be

    “Millenial has seen everything in the world and now sits in lotus position atop rock, answering questions of the unenlightened.”

    “American woman samples all 196 countries’ menfolk in record time. Says she has grown as a person and is now ready to settle down.”

    Woman gets all 196 flags.

    “American woman spends a few days in 196 different city-center Hiltons, learns that people are the same wherever you go.”

    Man jaw does suggest a high t, hypersexual woman (I’d like to see her digit ratio). Still, her main goal is virtue-signaling from the traveling and she is young enough and publicity-oriented enough not to want to ping the slutdar. Verdict: single digit # of cox on the voyage.

    Oh god, that brings me bad memories from that time I went sailing near antarctica. Immense cruise ships landing on beaches all set-up with drones, little flags, live facebook feeds. Crossing the cape horn with tough girls sitting in the all automatic yacht’s cabin yelling ”yes we’re sailors now! like moby dick ! woohoo !”. Pot smoking hippies on dubious scientific missions to count penguins on a stupid island with a whole private jet flown german camera crew telling how they are saving the world. Ex american millionaire stuck with his chinese wife and kids on a chilean military marina since a year with his broken mast and no money to replace it. Top Model looking redbull sponsored women paddling champions acting all offended when nobody wants to let them paddle around cape horn. Argentinian hosts of a che guevara themed hostel talking how mussolini was a fucking hero after they’ve turned off the bob marley blaring radio as they tought all the tourists were asleep. Backpacking girls admitting after a few drinks that their lovely brazilian hosts had actually raped them, but more disappointed that the locals go to mcdonald instead of eating traditional food …

    All those people need to die. The third world war can’t come soon enough.

    So the key to enlightenment is to endure 196 extended layovers, sounds about right.

    Yaaaay! Straits Times :)

    Could someone explain what I am supposed to hate about this, and why?

    • spandrell February 12, 2017 at 14:41

      I think you’re at the wrong blog.

    • amac78 February 12, 2017 at 16:38

      > what I am supposed to hate about this, and why?
      Nay, the point is not to hate, but to help the copywriters of the Straits Times by thinking of a different caption. As Erebus pointed out, supra, Ms. De Pecol has discovered that everybody everywhere is the same. Which must be so, as all cultures are equivalent, and HBD doesn’t exist.
      “Hating” and “self-hatred,” same difference. QED.
      As for captions, my nomination:
      “‘Wherever you go, there you are.’ x196”

    The shitlib multi-faceted, multi-front anti-Trump strategy is taking shape, and it’s a pretty strong one:

    MSM: Scream at top of lungs that Trump is a Hitler racist facist for every move he makes. Also call him mentally ill/insane (echoes of what was done w/ Goldwater).

    Government: Endless amount of leaks from unelected civil service so Trump can’t get anything done. MSM blows each leak out of proportion, calls Trump Hitler racist facist.

    Courts: Challenge every nationalist/anti-GC court order using shitlib judges on the west coast, which will be affirmed by the 9th circuit.

    Protests: MSM attention on Soros-paid protests in GC cities, vastly overestimating the size and impact of the crowds.

    Congress: Obstruct Trump maximally on everything, regardless of the issue. Push for impeachment.

    Censorship: Use Google, Twitter, Facebook, etc to censor conservatives more and more.

    Attack Trump family/allies: You see their attacks on Ivanka brand now and also on Barron, also on Bannon and now on Flynn. Expect these attacks to expand. Echoes of how Pablo Escobar was taken down (if you can’t get at Pablo, destroy his allies and friends).

    This strategy appears to be working, at least so far. Trump has been very quiet and hasn’t done anything over the past week (except get Sessions and DeVos confirmed).

    What the hell happened to her shoulder? It looks like someone took her right humerus out and didn’t replace it.

    “Relish your own sacred experiences of travel, no two one is better or worse given the circumstances.”

    I think I read this on the back of fortune cookie note once.

    Poorly channelling LastPsych, “Sublime narcissist discovers she’s still utterly self-absorbed in 196 different places.”

    50ft woman attacks Wudang Mountain.

    spandrell: “I think you’re at the wrong blog.”

    Could be. I’m sold on nationalism but not on neopatriarchy. There might be issues of class too.

    • spandrell February 13, 2017 at 12:46

      Well if this woman doesn’t convince you of the need for neopatriarchy I don’t know what will.

      Don’t know about class though. You mean you’re too patrician? As far as I can tell we’re all pretty middle class here.

      • mitchellporter February 13, 2017 at 15:35

        I’m a dodgy Australian who has never been anywhere near middle-class… I had a strange feeling that on this page I was witnessing an internecine conflict, and that increasingly makes sense. It’s a clash between one group of mostly American global adventurers, and another such group. Like the guy who went sailing in the Antarctic and hated the other westerners he met there. It’s a feud within a particular social class.

        • Rhetocrates February 13, 2017 at 15:37

          Ding ding ding ding ding! Give the man a prize, he’s guessed the right answer!

          Though you’d sharpen your analysis by leaving out the ‘global adventurer’ part. It’s a death-struggle between two American classes, most of whom don’t get to be jet-setters, but all of whom want to – which is why none of them are having babies.

  21. hankdelacroix February 13, 2017 at 19:36

    Looks more like an American man transitioned and broke the record, doing the job women can’t do.
