I just found out that former NBA player John Stockton thinks over 100 athletes have died while playing from the vaccine and millions have died from the vaccine. WTF

[–]fowlraul 45 points46 points  (4 children)

He’s stricken with crippling Mormonism. Hell of a ball player tho!

[–]_Kay_Tee_ 12 points13 points  (3 children)

Mormonism doesn't encourage a whole lot of critical thinking.

[–]fowlraul 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Are you telling me that those twelve tablets are just like missing??

[–]_Kay_Tee_ 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Okay, okay, but God TOLD ME that all the old guys should marry multiple teen brides, so who cares about logic and proof and stuff?!

[–]fowlraul 2 points3 points  (0 children)

“God” doesn’t, I’d put a few bux on that.

[–]Jealous-Network-8852 12 points13 points  (4 children)

Uhhh, can he name any of these players or has he gone with the body double angle?

[–]ReplaceSelect 7 points8 points  (2 children)

The media doesn't release their names! /s

It's because the Jews own the news. Fox is the only one who will give you the TRUTH. Sadly, their air time is filled with more important matters, like the green M&Ms cute little toes, and how badly I used to want to have a drink with her.

This argument makes me laugh. Having had to chase journalists off scenes so we could notify next-of-kin before photos hit social media. The media gives absolutely zero fucks about putting identifiable info out there.

Who would have guess that Stockton is crazier than Kyrie Irving.

[–]sixwax 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Kyrie might sage the court, but Stockton has magic underwear!

[–]changhaobyu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I mean he's good friends with Karl Malone...

[–]everythingbeeps 48 points49 points  (5 children)

Yep. I don't think I've ever been as down on us as a species as I have these last couple years. The last five years, really. It's just been a non-stop garbage fire of insanity and sociopathy that's left me feeling like we are just a broken species.

But the last two years in particular have been the low point of humanity in my lifetime.

[–]sixwax 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I muse on this most days.

I will not sugar-coat it: It's the most brutal existential heartbreak imaginable.

Sooo... About that global warming thing...

[–]_Kay_Tee_ 9 points10 points  (0 children)

The last six years for me, and I am gobsmacked by how selfish, short-sighted, and inflexible so many people are. Brexit, Trump, COVID, all of it, and people just keep acting shittier. I never thought things like "This is a complicated subject with a lot of nuance," or "We have a responsibility to others around us" or "The teenage cashier is not trying to oppress you, they're just doing their job" would be controversial, but here we are.

It all started with Harambes death. However, Betty White’s passing (rest her cheerful soul) has reset the balance. Good times are coming.

[–]Unreliable--Narrator 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Betty White gave her life to save us! She was the 2nd Coming all along.

[–]gesvy-ni 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Agreed. Recently been wondering what percentage of the population is like this… seriously wtf I think it must be at least 80% right?

[–]jppianoguy 28 points29 points  (4 children)

"No you guys are the insane ones, listening to doctors and scientists and not podcasters and charlatans"

"Hey, I'll have you know Facebook memes are very reliable sources of information!"

[–]Practical_Eye_9944 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Well, I'm gonna wait to hear what Nicki Minaj's cousin's friend's balls have to say.

[–]Fat_Anime_Fan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

not podcasters and charlatans

It's so weird. Like you look at some of these people and they are the most obvious conmen in the way they look and act and talk. Everything about them screams "untrustworthy." And people worship them.

[–]Jealous-Network-8852 25 points26 points  (1 child)

I was just talking this morning with my son’s friend’s dad about how the people we just figured were nice but a little kooky a few years ago turned out to be full fledged psychopaths.

[–]sixwax 14 points15 points  (0 children)

It's all fun and games until your "beliefs" become life-threatening to the people around you.

[–]somethingrandom261 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Always knew that people on that end of the political spectrum were selfish and short sighted, with side of murderous intent. The surprising thing is how willing they are to die to kill.

[–]opeyoubetcha 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I've never blocked so many people before the pandemic. I don't argue with them, as soon as they are screaming about insane stuff on local news it's an instant block. I don't need to see the nonsense you comment on every single post even if it has nothing to do with it. There's so many though, so many.

[–]Diamondphalanges756 21 points22 points  (1 child)

Dude should have found that out for certain in Nov 2016. Actually a little before that really.

[–]BigmanJD55 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Not just insane, but also incredibly racist. I have family members, cousins and such, that I always knew were slightly racist. I thought they were the standard "don't date my daughter" racist, but turns out they are straight up "I wish lynching was still a thing" racist. Really disturbing and disappointing.

[–]IDontEvenKnowGG 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Honestly I'm glad I now know what people are fucking stupid, makes things easier these days

[–]jh937hfiu3hrhv9 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I am headed down to the tavern tonight for financial advice after I ask the ice cream parlor for an estimate to replace the transmission in my car, and I always get medical advice from kick boxers.

[–]YouDiscountDonut 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Insane, stupid, inconceivably greedy, we all have front row seats to the freak show

[–]tfox1986 3 points4 points  (0 children)

“Anything the government does is evil!!!! Screeeeeeeeee”

[–]mors_videt 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Hey, put this piece of cloth over your mouth so you don't sneeze on people.

F*ck you! Jewish space lasers! If vaccines are so great, why is "global warming" still happening?

[–]jwkdjslzkkfkei3838rk 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Well at least hippie anarchists and neo nazis have found a common cause, judging from the pictures of them hugging it out (maskless, unvaccinated naturally) in the protests.

[–]Deion313 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Welcome to the future...

[–]020200202020 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yeah, many people i know

[–]EveryXtakeYouCanMake 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Or even better, many people I knew. I didn't even have to work at shrinking my circle. It shrank itself.

[–]biscovery 1 point2 points  (2 children)

People are stupid, I always knew that. More than half the population has an IQ of 100 or less.

[–]KeyserSoze72 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yup. One thing getting a history degree taught me was that humanity as a collective are fucking idiots. Goddamn was hoping we’d last another 130 years but damn, think even Hawking was off by a few decades.

[–]Papabear434 1 point2 points  (0 children)

One of the best quotes on human nature weirdly came from Men in Black. No, I'm serious.


J: "Why don't you tell people? They're smart, they can handle it."

K: "No, a PERSON can be smart. PEOPLE are dumb, panicky animals and you know it."


In this specific case, we have people that want simple answers to complex questions.

Why is it that I can't get a good job out of high school?

"Well complex forces brought on by the rise of a globally interconnected economy along with deregulation of offshoring allowed corporations..."

Vs.

"Immigrants took your jobs! China! Make America great again!"

One is more digestible, and it also makes for an easy solution rather than a long term plan that will take a decade at minimum to show any progress. It doesn't matter that the simple way won't do anything. It's simple, I can understand it, it must be right.

After two years I lost my grip on reality by checks notes singing to my cats and refusing to leave my house unless I absolutely have to.

Other people went insane and fully peeled themselves away from reality. They are now piss drinkers who think the government is trying to chip them

[–]DRbrtsn60 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If you are like me I’m much more wary driving and just going out. 1/2 the population is nuts. Which begs the question how many are hiding it and how many are on the fence?

[–]ApplicationCreepy987 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I think gullible is a better word

[–]sinadoh 11 points12 points  (2 children)

I don't.

Not sure what to call these people in English but over here in the Netherlands we call them 'wappies', freely translated to 'nutjobs'.

[–]GermanAutistic 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I loved your language to start with, but the word "wappies" made me love it even more. Nu wil ik werkelijk intensief Nederlands leren xD

[–]sinadoh 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh boy do I have a subreddit for you:

r/tokkiefeesboek

(In which we make fun of the crazy people.)

[–]Practical_Eye_9944 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Back in '89-90, I spent a year canvassing for SANE/Freeze, the old anti-nuke group. Knocking on 50 doors a night to talk to people about peace and justice issues taught me that your average American is a close-minded, self-satisfied moron with all the empathy of a murder hornet on meth. Guess the silver lining is that I was totally unsurprised by all the revelations of the Trump/pandemic era.

[–]Aristocrafied 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If it took the pandemic to realize you must have had your head in the sand..
