You Might Be A Genius if You Appreciate Dark Humor

Well, turns out I'm smarter than I thought I was.

If You Laugh at These Dark Jokes, You’re Probably a Genius

Quote:

According to a new study published in the journal Cognitive Processing, your reaction could indicate your intelligence. In the paper, a team of psychologists concludes that people who appreciate dark humor—defined as “humor that treats sinister subjects like death, disease, deformity, handicap or warfare with bitter amusement and presents such tragic, distressing or morbid topics in humorous terms”—may have higher IQs, show lower aggression, and resist negative feelings more effectively than people who turn up their noses at it.

Young Labour vote for UK to leave NATO

It appears the youthful side of the party is even more bonkers than Corbyn and McDonnell.

From article:

Young Labour demanded the UK ditch the military alliance after voting to support a motion called “support Corbyn and internationalism, oppose Trump and NATO”.

The motion said: “From Guyana to Vietnam to Iraq, the Labour Party all too often been complicit in American overseas aggression. NATO has been the lynchpin and institutional expression of American imperialism.”

Labour’s youth section called for an end to the UK’s membership to the alliance claiming NATO’s “continual aggression” made us less safe.

A lot of silly youngsters seem to have swallowed fake news. Bigly. :(

Guy finds stage guns in his basement after he buys the house.

I was reading on facebook where a man bought a house after the owner died. Going into the basement he found a plywood board covering part of the basement wall. Removing the board he discovered what he at first thought was an arsenal. On closer inspection, he discovered the guns were stage mock-up of weapons.

Which is more valuable; the real thing or the stage version?

Feel free to put me down hard but I don't think Trump is a bad President at all.

I think he's disliked for being an old-fashioned America first patriot who wants to keep and create jobs for Americans. Nothing in his rhetoric speaks of racism and his attitude toward Muslim immigrants is shared by the silent majority of Americans including myself. I admit every Muslim I have ever met I liked. Trump likes some of them himself.

He has strengthened Americas military and stood up to petty tyrants like the North Korean President.

What has he really done to deserve being hated?

The only thing worse, speaking Chinese and handing out one sided glass bongs.

P. S. There aren't more like him are there?

California mandates pet stores adopt rescues

In yet another obvious Libtard overreach California has outlawed pet stores using puppy mills just because they are cruel. Instead the special snowflakes think animals should not be put through misery and will now require pet stores to adopt out rescues.

I bet the rescue dogs won't even stand for the flag or help slut shame women. No wonder God is punishing the state with wildfires. #MAGA

Conspiracy theoriest and intelligence?

Just curious. I know two men who are both consumed with conspiracy issues about - everything. Everything. It wouldn't surprise me if one of them claimed the FBI was controlling Big Foot.

The thing is, both men are quite intelligent and well educated. I apologize if this has been discussed, but I wonder if this is not unusual?
