Acadamy Award Winning Three 6 Mafia. How soon we forget.

“Pulitzer Prize winning musician Kendrick Lamar”. I like to pull that one out since so few people know.

Or Grammy Award winner Hillary Clinton


DirtyDoctrine t1_j2nfed9 wrote

Wait, you two are just fucking around right? Did Hillary win a Grammy and did Kendrick Lamar really win a Pulitzer?


Nick_Full_Time t1_j2qflfx wrote

Nobody ever directly acknowledged it in this thread , but yes, kung fu Kenny has a Pulitzer Prize. 2016 for music, DAMN.

Obama got a Nobel peace prize so I guess anything is possible.


DirtyDoctrine t1_j2np4nq wrote

I still don't understand why that happened. Like I voted for him, but the Nobel Prize? Be realistic here.


makeshift8 t1_j2npnre wrote

Everyone who had a reason to feel strongly against it was either a racist or was blown up.


fadufadu t1_j2o2vtn wrote

This comment is as ignorant as the people you are describing


Isosceles_Kramer79 t1_j2o0oym wrote

Oh the irony of that second clause. :)

And it was a mind boggling decision by the Nobel Committee, almost as bad as giving one to Arafat.

When Obama got the prize, he had just taken office and did not actually do anything yet.


razorirr t1_j2o8q0z wrote

yeah once he got the award, he could really ramp up those drone strikes, its not like people win it twice in a row or anything.


Haunting-Ad788 t1_j2otc8f wrote

Obama did jack shit to earn it when he got it and he definitely didn’t deserve it after he droned two US citizens without due process, one of whom was a teenage boy.


Apprehensive-Hat5979 t1_j2nzmeo wrote

I love how people just are blind to history. Do you know how many people were upset that we had a black president in office. Do you forget how racist people were and how scrutinized he was for any kind of wrong doing he commited in their eyes? Do you remember how him wearing a tan suit was such a point of contention among conservative white folks. God he deserved better.


Isosceles_Kramer79 t1_j2o0yqi wrote

Criticizing giving the Nobel Prize to Obama is not racist even if there were instances of actual racist attitudes toward him.

What had he actually done by 2009 to justify that prize?


Apprehensive-Hat5979 t1_j2o1z98 wrote

Well this is from Norwegian Nobel themselves...

"Obama has as President created a new climate in international politics. Multilateral diplomacy has regained a central position, with emphasis on the role that the United Nations and other international institutions can play. Dialogue and negotiations are preferred as instruments for resolving even the most difficult international conflicts. The vision of a world free from nuclear arms has powerfully stimulated disarmament and arms control negotiations. Thanks to Obama’s initiative, the USA is now playing a more constructive role in meeting the great climatic challenges the world is confronting. Democracy and human rights are to be strengthened."


makeshift8 t1_j2o0mzg wrote

I remember when he said we were pulling out of Afghanistan. I agree it was a big moment. I’m white and I was pretty young in 2008 so it might not have hit as hard for me as for black folk or POC in general, I’m just saying that Obama overall didn’t contribute much to peace outside the US when looking at his overall policy decisions.

I remember the night they won the Oscar. The news anchors in Nashville were so angry that "a song about a pimp", beat out Dolly Parton.🤣


KP_Wrath t1_j2nhz3w wrote

Somehow, I get the feeling Dolly didn’t care that much.


Junior_Builder_4340 t1_j2ninv1 wrote

She didn't. They put the camera on her and she was laughing and applauding. Dolly stay getting paid!


Darth_Wayne_ t1_j2o0oqs wrote

Somehow I think Dolly was bumping that track all year.


daywalkker t1_j3rh2ea wrote

You really think Dolly Parton listens to Three 6 Mafia? I highly doubt they are on her playlist, lol. She is wholesome and kind, Three 6 is... not. I've listened to Three 6 since HS in the 90's, but it really doesn't seem like something Grandma Parton would be in to.

Because Dolly is awesome, I bet Three Six love her too.

100 thousand people died from overdoses last year. It's a unreported fucking epidemic.


arlenroy t1_j2p2edy wrote

Actually she was probably having fun, chilling out on the porch, just chopping it up with friends, and took a little too much of whatever it was. I've been there. If you're gonna go, that's probably one of the better ways.


gladamirflint t1_j2lr7yu wrote

Might’ve been nice for her, depending. Could have been a peaceful drift away from her place of comfort.

Nitrogen gas. You literally don't feel anything and just get sleepy.


lostallmyconnex t1_j2okkag wrote

Too risky. If you don't tie your hands up, while passing out you will likely rip out whatever you're breathing out of with the nitrogen.

Requires a good cocktail that will essentially put you under anethesia unless someone is willing to help you in the act.


lostallmyconnex t1_j2okv7g wrote

Oh and finding pure nitrogen gas in 2023? Forget about it.

Unless you do something for work that will justify to a local company they should sell you a large cannister.

Easier to just buy a fent analogue than it is to buy nitrogen where I live.

I think about it quite a lot, even that small percent chance it would fail and leave me paralyzed is enough to fear the outcome.


[deleted] t1_j2r19in wrote



lostallmyconnex t1_j2t29zc wrote

Ok, can I assume you had a reason to be there? The lpcal company requires a business to purchase it. Individuals cannot purchase the pure stuff if they aren't using it for work in most cases.

I doubt its like that everywhere. So refer to the rest of my other comment on how likely this method is to fail.


slipandweld t1_j2nl76z wrote

Better than romanticising war or other on the job deaths. Die bravely for somebody else's profits or die comfy and high as hell? I know which one I think is more respectable.


SloeMoe t1_j2nao13 wrote

How about merely being accurate about how it might feel to experience an overdose, would that be okay with you?


gladamirflint t1_j2n40g3 wrote

I think saying she died peacefully is better than spreading rumors about her apparently depressing and violent end.


Modsblogoats t1_j2n6squ wrote

Spreading lies to counter rumors?


gladamirflint t1_j2n7uwr wrote

Not sure what I said was a lie or a rumor. Just saying that drug overdoses have the potential to be peaceful.


RttnAttorney t1_j2ods1r wrote

Sure. Overdose deaths are so peaceful that we don’t have an opioid problem anymore folks! Hear that everyone?!


Harmonia_PASB t1_j2mrml5 wrote

I was overdosed on dilauded in a hospital, went into respiratory arrest, my o2 was 22%, I was blue and seizing. My ex husband gave me sternum rubs to keep me breathing I remember waking up mad because all I wanted to do was sleep, I didn’t care when he explained that I was dying. An OD can be a very pleasant way to die.


gladamirflint t1_j2n296n wrote

Sorry that happened, it must have been rough. That's what scares me, I had a similar experience (not as extreme) and I was totally fine just drifting away.


DirtyDoctrine t1_j2nfs0f wrote

I was on Dilaudid for an extended period (about 3 weeks) for a major, MAJOR hospital stay I had. That shit is scary and it actually started giving me nightmares. I could see it being an extremely peaceful way to die and after 3 weeks in the hospital, the willingness to keep fighting becomes harder and harder to find.

I had them pull me off it as soon as I wasn't in near constant pain.

My neighbor Bruce, who is a good guy with a big heart but rather crude and apparently unaware that he is clearly autistic.

Elisei Ryabukon, a 13 year old boy killed in rasPutin's mass murder in Ukraine early in Spring of last year.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the former Press Secty to ole Trumpolini, who was just elected governor of the U.S. state of Arkansas. Which is a fact plain astounding to me, but that's politics.

There's my three.

No one said you didn’t have freedom of speech. My comment doesn’t even come close to qualifying as starting a fight. I merely asked you a few questions and your response clarified everything that I needed to know about you. If anything your comment was made to try an illicit a fight and get attention. Hope the little attention I gave, made you feel whatever emotion you needed to feel.
