Re: Shittier Days

So, I've been estranged from my father for about twelve years, and to my mind the longer that lasted the better, but then it was discovered that he had a tumor in his head the size of a orange, and about two weeks after that, while I was figuring out what to say to him, he died. That was about a wee...

Re: Arizona is a blasted hellscape

McCain has been a fantastic advocate for the state of Arizona, and the people who live here owe much to him, even the ones he probably doesn't like. He's also a legit war hero, who displayed levels of courage as a captive I'm sure I couldn't match. The nice things having been said however, he's a st...

The solution is to fix the battery life, leave the on/off switches there, but have them do nothing but record attempts to use them.

Re: Rooty-tooty point and shootys

Aikido is provably trash that doesn't even involved sparring. If you want to defend yourself, learn a martial art that actually has merit against people who want to hurt you. Muay Thai, jiu jitsu, Judo, even certain schools of Taekwondo, basically anything that can form the basis for an MMA fighter ...

Re: Rooty-tooty point and shootys

I was being glib when I alluded to shooting cops outright. I just don't fully understand the reasoning that one should disarm one's self completely in the face of oppression, so as to not give the oppressor an excuse. Mainly because they don't need an excuse, they're oppressing you, that's the excuse.

They did put the End Stage Renal Disease Program in place under Nixon, but that was awhile ago.

Re: Rooty-tooty point and shootys

So you are arguing that because people want to kill them, they should refrain from arming themselves. Despite the fact that most incidents did not involve armed minorities, or because of it? I get that the cops are the racists in this scenario, I just don't get why you don't want to shoot them.

Maybe a hit piece they deserved 15 fucking years ago. Both guys have been out of the asshole humor industry for fucking ever, writing Portal 2 and various other Valve media for longer than OMM was a thing. I don't fully understand the relevance of going after them now, particularly given that most o...

I think they're laying a lot at the feet of a website from almost 20 years ago, but it's not like they misquoted them. My point is I clicked a link thinking "Oh, a retrospective, how interesting" and what I got was "People were mean to Jade Raymond (true and gross) and OMM might have ...

Re: GooberGoats

So? You said "here's some history on globbergloats" and it's not that at all. It's only nuance in that direction seems to be "The Goons and 4chan love it". It's misleading.

If by that you mean, they wrote a hit piece on Old Man Murray. Whatever you think of them, that's all this article is.

No, you don't have to assume that. Jury nullification as a phenomenon is generally organic, and serves only to show a difference between the will of the people, and the law as it is written. If we assume that all lawmakers and therefore all laws are made by rich white men bent on enriching themselve...

There's no way Labour gets a majority, but a coalition is possible, particularly since people seem even less enthused by the Tories after this election. There's also the very serious question of whether Tory leadership can actually assemble a functional government, whereas Labour has proven twice no...
