Factions Fight Club

What do you guys think? We've identified a bunch of factions here. How about Factions Fight Club? Every Thursday night.

One faction picks another, and they bloody each other to no end, or until one cries uncle. The NAP shall not be violated (since interaction here is only words.)

The key is to limit it to Thursday night, where it is no holds barred. And then, for the rest of the week, the factions work together.

Isn't that the whole point of the Hunger Games? The GOVERNMENT had a point: Allow the citizenry to live out their anger vicariously through entertainment.

Isn't that what the Administration is doing now, with Immigration? Allowing them to work their way into a franzy?

I don't watch much TV anymore. I just gave it the boot (again) from my home. But I think that is where we're looking to head: Full on mind control.

Please don't ever forget, friend, lover, fellow daily Pauler. Your highest allegiance is to yourself -- whatever form that may take.

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. Love is the law, love under will.

So who's game?

Faction Fight Club.

What are factions for?

Islamic leaders in India issue fatwa against cartoons

Cartoons are a form of literature. I see them in my local newspaper every day.


Islamic clerics in India have issued a fatwa against cartoons, saying the animated shows make a mockery of what they say are Allah’s creations...

Darul Uloom in the past has issued fatwas against women wearing perfume with alcohol, having tattoos, donning jeans or adopting hairstyles similar to those worn by women in the West.

Are we "fighting" again, tonight?

If so, what's the topic and who is going to ring the bell?

I'll ring the bell. Let's

I'll ring the bell.

Let's talk about literature.

The subject topic?

Salman Rushdie's book, "The Satanic Verses."


The publication of The Satanic Verses in September 1988 caused immediate controversy in the Islamic world because of what was seen by some to be an irreverent depiction of the prophet Muhammad....

The publication of the book and the fatwā sparked violence around the world, with bookstores firebombed. Muslim communities in several nations in the West held public rallies, burning copies of the book. Several people associated with translating or publishing the book were attacked, seriously injured, and even killed.

I thought Michael was considering bitcoins for tonight.


He's been quiet all day, so I'm not sure it's on. Is literature a faction of a faction?

Literature has two factions.

Timeframe really doesn't fit

Timeframe really doesn't fit my schedule. I was planning on staying up a night to debate the issue, but I'm skipping on this one. Too tired today. It's 02.35 AM here. I'm off to sleep. Skip the bitcoin debate for next week.

I say throw 'em all in the river...


Pandacentricism will be our downfall.

When I think of faction fight

When I think of faction fight club (The FFC) I think of this.


Featuring the ghost of Stonewall Jackson. Lol!

Secured borders vs open

Secured borders vs open borders.

accelerate the collapse vs.

Try to fix everything and make it nice again faction.

Pandacentricism will be our downfall.

Well I wasn't going to say anything but I got drawn in....

and really the only thing that comes to mind is "Top Rankin'" so here:

What the hell is wrong with you?

Are you dumb or just plain stupid? Those videos belong in the jam session NOT the fight club thread. Who pays your paycheck? You must be working for the feds. Neoconnazicointelproshilltroll. This is the dumbest thing I have ever read on the DP ever. Go back to redstate.

Wait! No, has....don't leave, I didn't mean it. I was just brushing up on my fighting skills for Thursday and I thought I'd practice with you.
How did I do? Like, on a scale from 1-10, 1 being you are not a fighter....and 10 being, everyone be afraid of jrd3820.

I think you were at about a

I think you were at about a 6. I definitely don't want to see you at a 10!

You got moxy kid

You'd probably rate around 8-9 except:

1) making up words like neoconnazicointelproshilltroll takes away from your rant. If the target of your rage has to stop to translate the name you just called him —you don't want to do that, you're going for the knockout, act like it—it's like pulling your verbal punch. Instead, just call your opponent George Bush and leave it at that.

2)You didn't go all caps! You should've gone ALL CAPS! Lots of these things ! help too!!!

3) You aren't supposed to apologize afterwards. It makes you look weak. You'll get eaten alive in there.

God, these forums have been infested with Obama supporters for a while now, I wish you would all just get the fuck out. NAZI.

Kinda like that?


Good job, that really hurt. Hot, bitter tears are streaming from my eyes right now.

By the way, you might want to explain that STFU stands for silly talking funny unicorn, ya know, just to avoid acrostic induced confusion.

Her lack of using emoticons was well noted by me

as I was probably the last on this page to restrain myself as such. I am slow but plotting. Right there in the last immediate sentence gap, nothing marks my success, although I can still feel it, tempting me, plodding against the borders of my newly honed ninja spirit. There, I heard its footstep yet again.

jrd3820's picture

Sigh....hey NEOCON

What the hell are you talking about? You DO know everything you just said is 100% completely factually wrong, right? Way to spit out msm spoon fed propaganda. Idiot.


((((((((( jrd )))))))))

Oh hi! I would HATE every HATEful thing YOU just wrote if I were a HATEr like YOU, but it's not Thursday yet. I just HATE it when it's not Thursday. I may be an idiot because I don't know how to darkify my nonHATEful text like YOU, but at least I'm not a HATEful idiot. By the way, I'm currently eating broccoli grown in ISRAEL. I LOVE eating my ISRAELi broccoli! I don't HATE YOU people that eat California broccoli though. I only HATE YOU people that don't LOVE ISRAELi broccoli.

Yes, I feel better. Thanks for asking.

jrd3820's picture

Don’t hug me right now. I’m trying to fight with you!

I thought I told you how much I HATE that Israeli grown broccoli. You probably don’t even like it do you? You’re just eating it to spite me.

Ok, since it's not Thursday, I'm going to tell you a secret. I don't really think you are an idiot or a neocon. I was just practicing. Really, I think you are keen, but I have to brush up my fightin' skills or I will be eaten alive on Thursday like has said.

I have a secret too to tell

I had no idea ((())) was a HUG thing. True story. YOU will just have to trust that I'm an idiot, or at the very least, only NOW spitefully noncompliant.

jrd3820's picture

So you didin't mean to hug me (((John Robb)))?

True story for you. I didn't know that for a while either, and I used them a decent amount, come to think of it...I have no idea what I thought that meant, what did you think that meant?

Anyways, in my early days when I was just youngin' here at the DP without knowledge of how this place works and with no friends in sight, Granger ever so kindly pointed that out to me once and I realized I had been hugging people I never meant to hug. It's not that I wanted to necessarily NOT hug them, I just didn't know them enough to be hugging them and whatnot. It was embarrassing really. I almost didn't come back. How sad would that have been though? We would have never met each other and not not fallen in love and would have not pretended to run away to get married and honeymoon in Green Bay and buy a plot of land in Montana, and we would have never not had a fight over broccoli.

That is a tragic thought. I hope you are not crying just thinking of all that.

"I hope you are not crying just thinking of all that."

That is SO cruel. I recently revealed my addiction to tears.

Or perhaps you are as kind as Nick Lowe and concerned that I not relapse.

Now that you mention it, I vaguely remember eventually, like you, discovering that parentheses as such were hug thingies. They make for a better name text shout-out thingie though, and that's what I had spent the bulk of my time seeing them as, so that's how I remember them overall.

The internet is weird, your being embarrassed having unwittingly given cyber-hugs. I suppose I would be too. The weird part is that I wouldn't bat an eye or be embarrassed giving them out willy-nilly in physical life. I must qualify that no one has ever told me that my hug has creeped them out. Not that I lack creepability in other ways. ;)

I'm glad you came back. :)

Shadow boxing is more embarrassing than masturbation. ;D


Shit! Now THAT's a relapse! Three shots back to back. Damn, Woman!

EMOTICONS! Sheesh, am I addicted to everything?


Oh what the hell, once I start... ((( ;)))

haha l.o.j.s.

I think we should add that to the DP acronym dictionary. If we have one of those we should at least...

lol good one essie.

We could even pronounce it

It would be interesting

to require people to facetime each other after a fight. Let's see if people can still be mean to each other after seeing and talking to a real face.

A Devils Advocate Debate would be sweet

I think that is what it would be called at least lol.

You debate on the opposite side of your actual belief/ideal system.

There are many who are so set in their ways here and can be seen in their comments and repetition. It would be great for people to attempt to debate on the other side and see if they can win the argument.

I would love to see anarchists debating why government IS needed.

I would love to see christians debating FOR atheism.

Those who are against abortion, debate the reasons why a woman should have the right to do with her body as she pleases.

There are a million topics that could be debated in this manner and I think when you are thinking outside your current ideals that new ideas and thoughts might come to you which can better your debating efforts.

One sided debating just ends up with people saying that we just agree to disagree and nothing is really accomplished. Trying to win the debate from the other side of the isle might end up doing good for all involved.
