TBF, usually people who post it here are actually filled into believing it’s true by a liar, whereas the media does that constantly and knowingly which is way worse.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.

Those who’s eyes are closed to God will never see the wonderful things he’s doing. The way that only he can move hearts. I could give a personal and ongoing example, but would be far too long to write up. Basically a rando giving us a new church building in exchange for our building.

They are predicting that the stars will align to put Trump back in office with the world begging for his return just before he does. It’s an interesting theory, desirable, etc. my only concern is the “too good to be true” and the “savior” language used makes me suspicious of the post.

I disagree. This gives the left “Qanon” ammo. They use this to attack Trump, his team, and play it on repeat for the normies. There’s a surprisingly high number of Christians who deny an elite cabal run by Satan, the Bible tells us about this. The archangel Michael may be the most powerful angel and even stronger than Satan, but we worship neither. God is over all. So no matter the strength and resolve of any being, human, angel, or otherwise, God is supreme and in him we have our being. To him be all glory, all glory, dominion, and power forever and ever.

I noticed my Starlink internet was great until spring. Then I cut down a tree and it was made great again. Then a component failed and I was frustrated yet again and dumped them (plus they raised the prices)

Look, it was a stupid tree anyways. 😂

Tree sap and … blocking the internet I no longer use … … … probably other stuff.

It's actually very hard to know the truth nowadays. I follow this forum because I view it as the closest thing to achieving truthfulness. Look at so many blowhards on many topics (myself included). Generally, people go by what feels right because there's so much data out there, some right, some wrong, it's hard to know the truth. We dont have time in 1 lifetime to dive down every rabbit hole on literally everything. If we did do that, there would be no time left for anything else. That's supposing you have the best digging skills and find the truth every time.

This has led to a world of "experts" because surely I don't know everything, but I can know a couple things, I can be an "expert" on those topics. Whose to say my expertise is right on the topic I do a huge dig on? Some people do the same job for a lifetime. That does not make them a skilled worker in their field. Some show up and "get it" and they figure out how to do the job better than "seasoned veterans"

I don't necessarily look down upon the methods this board uses. The best way, on this board, is to spit the truth, then back up that claim with valuable resources. Then, you have a win-win situation. No one (with good intentions) will attack you when you have proven your case as factual. The "reddit" like system will support you because this forum, people care more about the TRUTH than supporting a narrative. Plus, your own integrity will be vindicated and proved.

Additionally, your "satellite dish" sends and receives signal from another satellite, so there is a duality of losses found. Plus the round trip function as you mentioned. (is 22,000 miles right? That seems a bit high IMO. No sauce from my end, just intuition.)

I dont know fiber optics is always the way to go (same with cable) because you have choke points. They throttle you (in a very obvious way), I pay for 500 Mbps and I actually get about 20. I used to have Gigabyte service, I got about 200 Mbps. With Starlink, I got about 150-200. I was never throttled. The only problems I had was on my end. Some of the blame goes to Starlink on that. They provided me with a component that failed, but I had no idea which of the components were failing me. I didn't really want to re-wire 150ft cable. Turned out to be an ethernet cable adapter.

I gamed on Starlink. It was actually a really good experience. ... That is, until spring came, and one giant tree blossomed and blocked a small portion of the path, and when I gamed, it was partially obstructed view. I removed the tree, ran into other issues with Starlink (ended up being a ethernet cable adapter) and I already switched back to cable. (also, I cut that pesky tree down). Now, I don't know whether to go back to starlink or stick with cable.

Starlink - more expensive, surprisingly better than the local cable and fiber optic

Cable - cheaper, "faster", supporting Breezeline, Canadian company (with ties to comcast possibly)

You believe one “conspiracy theory” therefore you believe them all theory.

Instead, each theory should be weighted out on its own. Each theory deserves to be explored, so long as their a rationale behind it.

You seek to extinguish discussion, that’s a losing point. You do nothing but strengthen our resolve -> to seek the truth.

If a flat earther believes the earth is flat based on science and logics, then he is seeking truth. Whether or not he is misguided is a separate conversation. He could be persuaded provided more compelling evidence is shown for a globe earth. If a flat earther doesn’t care about facts and logics, then he is that of a cult minded koolaid drinking type. He is useless, no amount of information will persuade and dissuade him. The same is true in the opposite direction.

Not everyone cares all that much about the shape of the earth, they want a norm, and that’s enough for them. But they deeply care about other issues.

You are desiring to stir up strife. For that I will be reporting your comment to the mods. You have no interest in edifying this community, but only feeling vindicated by your talking points. What does it matter to you if people want to question the validity of 9-11? Are you afraid it will destroy your world view?

Gotcha. We'd have to ask the Afhanis how the missiles work. I'm sure theyre too familiar with it. Or Iraqis.

I had a $15 in Charleston, SC. 190 proof. My insides felt like they were melting. I could feel it seeping into my stomach. That was about the full length of what I felt, plus the non-stop feeling of wanting to vomit (not alcohol induced, just burning sensation felt so awful). It was in my early days of drinking (23 years old, I know, I'm a loser ;) ), plus I took a swig from the bottle, so I don't know how much or how little...

WOULD NOT RECOMMEND.

To you sir, Congratulations!

No, wine was made to make the heart glad, Jesus turned water into wine. Jesus drank from "the fruit of the vine" or wine, with his disciples on the night he was betrayed.

The demons play on our insecurities. They encourage us to drink to excess, which we are called not to do. Be sober minded, for the days are few.

Green text was not quotes, but alluding to quotes from the Bible. As always, do your own research.

Step 1. Buy keg(s) of favorite beer (or beers)

Step 2. Start watching the queen funeral on TV/ other device

Step 3. Stick mouth under spout

Step 4. Pour/ drink until empty

Step 5-X. If you finish the keg, throw it to the side, start on the next until you pass out or die, or if you are a hulk of a man, finishing multiple kegerators like a boss, then watch and laugh as someone else attempts the same.
