  1. My fiancé and I bought a house priced at $560,000 and put down a 20% for down payment, and our closing will coming up in May. We were told not to open any accounts as that would affect closing (not sure how but that’s what our agent told us). I also have an HYSA with American Express, and plan to transfer all my savings money from my BoA account to my AmEx account. If I transfer my money, would this have an effect on my house closing?

  2. Didn’t Navalny support some Neo Nazi groups in Russia at one point? I remember there being another thread from a long time ago in which someone posted a video of navlany hosting a Russian patriots parade, and there being Neo nazis at that event. I mean i know it has nothing to do with OP’s topic, but I do feel that if Navalny were in power, he would have emboldened such groups in Russia. Maybe would have replaced corruption with fascism and racism. 

  3. I think it’s a smokescreen….something to distract people from real issues. The thing is that the politicians and corporations are threatened that most people see through the BS of the current system, so they need some sort of distraction so people stop caring about them being exploited by these same politicians and corporations.

    I think there will be localized wars, but not a total war. the holy nukes prevent it. All wars in history are always to gain something. If the atomic arsenal is released, no one wins. look at the history of humanity, war after war, without pause, until Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Afterwards, the normal thing would have been a confrontation between the US and the USSR, but there was none. Never again has an atomic bomb been dropped on someone.

    I agree, the world isn’t ending or going to shit….it’s just that we are more aware with social media and technology. War has always been the norm since humanity has existed on this planet, and it’s never going anywhere. In fact, one could argue that in the last decade, humanity has seen a sliver of time where war was at its lowest, but that’s an exception not the norm.

    Or do they? I haven’t really seen it

    because the women in Iran, KSA etc. are really defenseless and have less rights than men. 

    This is the real toxic patriarchy.


    But the thing is Iran and Saudi are much lower on the spiral. They never had a woman’s rights movement like the west did, so the women in those societies for the most part like wearing hijabs, like playing that role as they see it as a moral duty in their society. It’s not just Iran, in most underdeveloped places with stage purple red and blue, people, even most women, accept that woman have a specific duty in society and men have a specific duty in society. Also Iran, India, china or any eastern or middle eastern culture for that matter see nudity and exposing one’s self as a sign of impurity. The women there genuinely see covering up and wearing a hijab as a moral duty to uphold specific values in their culture.

    Yes, I was also interested in understanding Hitler when I was young. When I was 17 or so I bought and started reading Mein Kampf to try to understand Hitler. I read Stalin's biography. I read Saddam Hussein's biography. I read Lenin's biography. I read Mao's biography. I read Genghis Khan's biography. I read about North Korea. I studied Osama Bin Laden's ideology.

    If Satan had an autobiography, I would happily read it.

    People around you probably thought you were joining some Neo Nazi movement at the time ?

    What Holywood, bro, when we have a BOLYwood

    I am actually planning to watch some bolywood movies for culture immersion. Though they kinda are trying to mimique west a lot judging from trailers

    Yea, it’s kinda cringe. Some elite Indian people pretend as if they don’t know their Indian language and only know English. That’s what happens to you when you go through a post colonial education system.

    Purple has existed all throughout India for over 5000 years. It hasn't gone anywhere. Blue arose on top of it over time.

    It’s crazy, and in a weird way lucky for India, that stage red never arose in an organized form in India. Given the poverty there, one would expect the crime rate to be at Brazil’s or South Africa’s level, but it’s not, rather the opposite. India is even safer than the US
