I might, but I don't know if I get the joke - or if it is a joke.


People mainly on the right in response to black lives matter, have been known to say "all lives matter"


I think you might be surprised that right leaning people would use 911 as an example of all lives matter - I doubt you'll offend them. It's an even better blue lives matter post. So I guess, go for it?

So, I just learned from a Canadian twitter that I follow that Canadians say ‘sorry’ so much that a law had to be passed saying that apologies aren't admissions of guilt.

Sounds like fake news

But I remember when I was learning to drive that I was told to not say sorry after an accident as it’s an admission of guilt

So... yeah maybe

I think you missed the sarcasm and irony in my usage considering that today most people will be focusing on the 3000+ lives that were lost.

Everything you post is fake news...

The “Apology Act“, passed in 2009, is a direct result of Canada’s overuse of the word “sorry”. See, once upon a time, lawyers in court were probably able establish guilt quite easily. All they would have to do is prove someone apologized at the time of the incident and presto! the verdict would swing in their favour.

I definitely missed it. I'm not sure what you are driving at. (I'm not offended btw, I'm just not sure what your point would be - just curious)

(saw your post: yeah, All Buildings Matter is funnier - as always, these types of things completely mischaracterize the point, but it's a reasonable jab.)

Remember, on this day the ones that stood up and said "No" and crashed the plane headed for the White House. Remember them and try to be like them if you're ever in a crazy situation

I’d have probably gone with #AllDaysMatter instead, but that’s just me.

I'd probably not go with anything that belittles BlackLivesMatter, but that's just me.


Good post, Sixty. Love that story. I'm not a conspiracy theorist but I still tend to suspect United93 was shot down, and I have ZERO problem if that's the case, but I do like the idea of the passengers charging the cockpit. Love that movie so much.

I’d have assumed the joke was targeted at all lives matter people instead of black lives matter. It just falls flat is all.

Flat joke is flat, I posted the trending twitter on my FB and one of the folks who post "all lives matter" reacted with the angry face lol

COVID cases confirmed in the area i work, we're told we still have to come into work and "take all necessary precautions"

I'm still working with co workers who aren't even bothering to wear masks. (Over here customers need to wear masks when inside a shop but staff aren't required to because we have a "protective screen")

If Sixty's still doing odds i think i'm about to take the lead!

Hey if Nighthawk gets wiped out, does that improve our odds at all?

It's been a good run, all things considered, my assets are to be dished out evenly between all the off topic regulars, Barney to get the Hotfuzz profile pic
