    Just a tidbit from Absurdistan.

    A somewhat conservative party published a campaign commercial for the upcoming election and one of the issues they touched on was the increase in crime. They posted a picture of a burning car.

    Media went on a frenzy because the picture of the car was from a car fire in Vancouver and not Sweden. So all media focused on was how the commercial was misleading. BUT the truth of the matter is that 4 cars are torched every day in Sweden...

    Misleading how? Media constantly use stock photos, so whenever there is a drug bust and they show a picture of cocaine, do they have to show the very same cocaine that was confiscated to not be misleading?

    What would be really misleading if they showed a torched car if there was no torched cars in Sweden, but as I wrote, four cars are torched every day!

    When media's little darling (a Green Party) used forest fires in Sweden as a result of climate change, they showed a picture from a forest fire in Australia. Do I think that is misleading? No!

    The very same media that criticizes the conservative party for their commercial:

    [​IMG] <- Two different articles about two different car fires but they use the very same stock photo. Are they also misleading?

    Bullshitter because I find it strange that state owned media criticizes a party that they dislike for using stock photos, while they use stock photos themselves and they also never criticize parties they like for using stock photos in their commercials?

    Bullshitter because you mention truth, but can't simply awknowledge it when presented

    Bullshitter for looking for wiggle room


    Bullshitter because you're gonna keep doubling down


    Bullshitter because you're the same as the people you complain about, you just don't have any power

    It's awesome that this guy is in possession of some simple information that is worth billions of dollars as long as not many people know about it and yet he's willing to give it away for free. What a truly great man!

    I believe I watched the video, if there are no car fires in that city then I would consider it misleading, otherwise it seems like a non-issue.

    do you have the saying in sweden “making a mountain out of a molehill”?

    It's like that douchebag Tai whatever the fuck that says "just read a book a week and it'll come to you blahblah" while sitting on the hood of a Lambo.

    Fucking Charlatan.

    He's not selling anything. He doesn't need money. He isn't a charlatan. Some people actually like to share their knowledge with people and get pleasure from that itself.

    He doesn't actually impart jack shit from his social media stuff though.

    I followed that asshole for a year on IG to see what he was about and he doesn't impart SHIT. Dude's more of a can than that fucking boxer Uzzy was.

    What? That is a lie. He shows trading patterns and helps people out with basics. His pick this week was JNUG. Look it up. Up 14% just today.

    You've all combined stock trading discussion/tips and social media celebrities.

    It's the perfect storm of things I don't give a fuck about.
