    What specific point are you rebutting with that random google search fatty?
    Fatty? My insurance broker had to add a few kilograms to my actual weight in order get rid off a surcharge for being too slim. So I could actually use a pound or two more on my ribs.

    And the point (still) is: Using BMI as a measurement from which a individual taxation is derived is questionable, as BMI is too inaccurate. As stated in the top results of that "random google search", the BMI is a formula created by a mathematician. A profession which at least I personally don't associate with "profound knowledge of a human's biological and health conditions".

    That's why I said body fat % though.

    That's a lot of words to say charlatan.
    It also shows that the stuff he's "teaching"*) obviously doesn't work, otherwise he would've been able to convince ("Tchaka!") that service to change his age.

    *) Apologies to all real teachers, refering to this crap as "teaching" feels almost like I've insulted you all.

    Which - when used alone without weighting in other factors like at least type of body fat and who knows what else, has similar issues.

    As mentioned in my previous post: I personally couldn't care less. If anything, I'll get money back when "being taxed by fat", because I lack quite a bit of it. But I hate obvious injustice, in which something like this would lead into, IMHO.

    Capitalism leads to injustice, this whole thing started with a discussion of economic externalities.

    We want to encourage a meaningful health change in the lifestyle choices of the population. Pick your poison.

    Jo Johnson gone as transport minister.

    Meanwhile Arlene is repeating her previous statements to anyone who will listen that the confidence and supply agreement is between the DUP and Tory party and "is not dependent on who is leader".

    hoooo boy

    Isn't it glorious how in the eleventh hour great leaders rise up to the challenge in the truly British tradition started by Churchill?

    Surely all the remaining ministers want their names etched into the history as the architects of the best deal in dealmaking history and thus will see the brexit till the end and not jump ship in attemts to save face, surely!

    Oh, buried in the Johnson is a gem; the DUP are not ok with mays proposal and will vote against it in parliament: https://edition.cnn.com/2018/11/09/u...ntl/index.html

    "But the prospect of May being able to win the parliamentary vote took a knock Friday when Arlene Foster, leader of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), whose 10 MPs prop up the Prime Minister's minority government, said she would also oppose the plan."

    Who the hell uses Clegg for whataboutism? He hasn't been relevant, or even noticeable, since about 2014


    Well, obviously meester does, but since he's effectively a copy-paste textbot for r/pol or whatever mean-spirited sinkhole he goes to to get his thinking done for him, the question stands. Is this some new weird alt-right talking point/code thing? Is Clegg jewish or something?

    I'd like to remind everyone that Meester doesn't even write his own posts, he copypastes responses from some shithole Discord server

    Personally I subscribe to the theory that Meester is just what QuackBot evolved into after exposure to /pol/.
    'I'm pro life. I'm a non-smoker. I'm a pro-life non-smoker. WOO, Let the party begin!'

    I'm a (sleeper) member of an alt-right discord where people post arguments they're having on the internet with "leftists" and get group advice on how to reply, sadly this is the world we live in

    The NSFW channel is entirely full of furry and trap porn, weirdly enough

    edit oh and a lot of "I'm moving to asia because the women there are submissive and like white dick" posters

    Joke's on them when they can't get a residence permit because the nations they hold up as paragons of the kind of world they want to create aren't too keen on unskilled white blokes with neckbeards shitting up the place.

    They can't even crowd source good responses to off hand forum posts?

    They're probably too dumb to actually kill themselves.
