I was never especially impressed by Jordan Peterson, but I never quite got why he gave leftists the screaming whim whams? Well OK I get it in a general way, but he was just one of many "traditionalists" why pick on him in particular?

Jordan Peterson is notorious for telling his -- were they disciples? -- to take care of basic hygiene.

Turns out he's a drug addict, therefore ... leftists were right all along about not washing. :)

Right? :notsure:

Nothing sudden about it, merely that Pyrrho has finally installed a smiley of it. :8b:

If anyone cares



It's not really a great video. This is Thunderf00t's other channel, where the videos are a bit low-effort, but there's more of them.
By "low effort" I simply mean stuff he does in a single take without a lot of editing and post-production work. So he does sort of drone on a bit.

I thought that was supposed to be Hitchens or Dawkins or something like that?

"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"
