Also:
When I said "But then you choose to think. Which I do not advocate." This was irony.
"brilliant fucking dazzling personalities" I'm truwy sowwy for this wacist outburst. (Irony)
I did the political compass test and I think I did good because I was right in the top right corner.

excellent article and proof how ridicolous and even destructive for the cause this whole 'outrage on everything' actually is.

Milo who? Never heard of him. I did research the writer though who gives himself a pat on the back for his trolling efforts to get men to go see a movie I never heard of. $7 million budget and made $1.43 million. I guess he should troll harder next time.

My mate was at school with him in South London somewhere. Says he was intensely bullied for being a huge weirdo and a massive cunt. Explains a lot.

Base CampCool

I've always fantasised about what I'd do if I came across a find like that.

I wouldn't know who to sell it to in one go.

I might be able to sell it brick by brick or kilo by kilo but the word would get around pretty quick and the real owners would come knocking at your door.

I'd probably just go on a massive bender then get mega paranoid that I'm gonna get nicked/deaded and chuck the lot back in the sea.

Asking people to disassociate themselves of everything up until that point? I'm not saying it's wrong, it's just too abstract.
Your experience deeply affects your interpretation of facts. In conversation people jump from the NHS to migrants, Corbyn to migrants, from refugees to illegal immigrants. Is this 'jump' theirs entirely? It's made from it being hammered into them from the media.

The subtext here is "Don't listen to this Milo plonka. My interpretation is better."
