    I plan to engage in weekly flagellation to atone for the landmine that blew off Abimbola's legs so I could get my 1.25% interest.
    Where the fuck did you manage to get 1.25% in this investment climate?!

    Yeah, I tried reading it but it was like wading through treacle. If any article desperately needed a TL;DR summary it were that.

    Unless they produce some kind of electronic peado meter to determine if potential donors are peados, I'm not sure anything can be done.

    No point navel gazing over stuff like this, it achieves nothing.

    They already have, although they all seem to use the American spelling of paedo for some reason.

    True that. But it's not that clear cut. Should a gift be returned if the donor is later convicted of pimping underaged girls? MIT said no and it's now blowing up in their face, at least one professor is leaving and there's tons of negative press.

    Should The British Museum keep accepting Sackler money? Should The Louvre? (Sackler money is made from the opioid crisis in the US, it's just a technicality from being illegal-drug money )

    But what I really didn't get was Negropontes urge to stand up and defend his actions. Before this no one was talking about him. He just thought it would be splendid to give an impromptu endorsement of taking Epstein money. Which I found rather tone deaf.

    It's OK to fuck up, but like Load-2.0 I think it's important to accept culpability and I also think one should try to learn from mistakes made.

    What happened to the incel thread? It's my natural home, free of Chads.

    Anyway, I've just seen something called a "beta salad" in the shop. Might be worthwhile if you can't even bear to look at a Stacy.

    You can't easily unspend money, so no.

    The Sackler money is a more interesting one, some institutions have refused their money. However if I were a board member of a charity/institution I'd take it so long as there were no strings attached (e.g. I wouldn't have to open a "Sackler wing" of my museum, a Sackler plaque at my hospital etc.), I'd rather their money be used to bring some good than sit in an account accruing them interest.

    A few universities returned unspent money. MIT opted not to. Biting them in the ass now. According to one article MIT even took money from Epstien after he was convicted. Shady.

    This is what the British Museum have.

    It's a tricky thing with taking misery money to use them for something good. I think that should be an option if the money was seized, but I don't like the idea of taking money from people selling drugs personally. Plaque or no plaque.

    This might has something to do with it :

    Satchel Ronan O'Sullivan Farrow is an American journalist, lawyer, and former government adviser. Farrow is the son of actress Mia Farrow and Woody Allen. In late 2017, Farrow's articles in The New Yorker helped uncover the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse allegations.

    I like to think I'm open to a lot of things but as the person interviewed says it almost feels like there's a label for everything. I really can't keep up.

    I've been searching for a label for a while. Just what do you call someone who can only get an erection and an urge to procreate when strangling geese at the park?

    Did you see that Through the Keyhole where they went to Fatima Whitbread's house, Leigh Francis opened up one of her wardrobes (why?) and there's one of those massive mains powered massage wand vibrators in there?

    I want a label for someone who felt completely unaroused witnessing that.

    Fireman Sam viciously murdered for being male, white & cisgendered or something.

    While I can sort of see what they're thinking, will maintaining a relationship with a character aimed at preschoolers really prevent women from becoming firefighters?
