ben_vulpes not surprised

ben_vulpes: entirely unmentionable outside of the uranium mines.

BingoBoingo: danielpbarron: What about Meta-NSA?
BingoBoingo: Or roving bands of home invading SJWs
thestringpuller: BingoBoingo that's a great movie idea.
thestringpuller: NSA wiretapping prayers.
danielpbarron: the world hates The Bible and its believers. There is nothing new here.
thestringpuller: From Rome to US, nothing changes.
thestringpuller: Except US has perverted christianity pretty hardcore. (Funny given the puritans and all)
BingoBoingo: So did later Romans
danielpbarron: there are none that do good. Not a single person.

ben_vulpes: tether always makes for fun dynamic control problem
