End of the Year Interviews: Part 3

In this, the 3rd part of the End of the Year series we will hear thoughts and opinions of several regular TISC participants.

We are reaching the end of 2017. Generally speaking, which is in your opinion the most important happening, evolution or trend in the World in 2017?

In general, I’d go for every little thing being criticized for being racist, insensitive, politically incorrect, discriminating against *insert any random thing you can imagine* and so on.

In sports, I’d say it’s one sport after another falling victim to the ‘gender police’ resulting in good events being taken out and rather untested and/or boring events being put in, because good competition is apparently less important than making each and every possible thing completely equal (yet strangely, they’re not going for an open competition yet…separating men and women could be considered discriminatory if all other things in life are to be believed).

Antarctic plotting continues

In terms of TISC, that’s a good question. I’m not that deep into the TISC history and discussions to know exactly what’s playing, but I guess organizers still being screwed over by Antarctica’s penguins is a worrying trend.
