About

I have a PhD in MLP Fanfiction from the University of Canterlot in Ann Arbor and have an Associates in TLK Fanfiction, and the Pokemon Arts.

I also write fanfics that get ruthlessly jossed by canon and make jokes no one gets.

Commented on The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria

Islam is divided into two major religious factions--Sunnis and Shiites (think of it like the divide between Catholics and Protestants). I can’t say for certain, but I believe the divide comes from who “succeeded” Mohammad. Sunnis believe it was one guy, Shiites another.

What we’re seeing now is what Christianity saw in the 1600s--the two sides fighting each other in wars. Irag formerly had a Shiite government under Saddam Hussein, but Shiites were the minority in Iraq. Once ‘Merica came, the Sunnis, thanks to the joys of democracy, assumed control of the government, told the Shiites to suck it, and they did by joining ISIS. That’s why they’ve been able to steamroll through Iraq, the Shiites are giving them tact support.

Now, Iran--which is also Sunni--is planning on propping up the Iraqi government to keep the Shiites from taking control once more and extend their influence in the Middle East (as they apparently have a great deal of nostalgia for the Persian Empire).

Neither the USPTO or the USCO have Hasbro registering the term “brony.”

God, I remember the Faustening. I read through the thread when it had fifty replies, came back the next day, saw it had gotten stickied and had over a thousand replies, and knew shit had hit the fan somehow.

Fully automatic weapons have been banned since the National Firearms Act of 1934, which required a tax stamp that is no longer issued by the government.

According to the FBI, violent crimes in the US have been at twenty year lows. What you’re seeing is the media using their tried and true “if it bleeds, it leads” style of journalism to play up every shooting that takes place, when in reality, their much less common than they used to be.

>Guns ARE the problem.
Timothy McVeigh killed more people with a truck full of fertilizer than the top 8 mass shootings in the US combined.

The Bath School Bombing remains the deadliest school mass murder in US history, killing 38 children and 6 adults via dynamite and a car bomb.

Guns aren’t the problem, people wanting to kill are.

>The fact remains that the Nazi Party loosened gun laws for German citizens
False.
>Jews were prohibited from possessing any dangerous weapons, including firearms. They were also forbidden from the manufacturing or dealing of firearms and ammunition.
Makes sense. Can’t have the group you want to get rid of fight back.

>inspired by an emotional plea against gun violence
So it’s an appeal to emotion fallacy on par with “think of the children!”

Your daily reminder that, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, heart disease is the #1 preventable killer in the US--killing twenty times more people every year than guns do.

Damn Poe’s Law making it impossible for me to tell if the artist is serious or if this is a /pol/ false flag.

I’m pretty sure it’s a satire, but I can’t be certain.

I think this artist is the one guy that actually likes Flashlight since he’s the only one I ever see that regularly draws shipping comics of them.
