Re: Our Boys In Blue

By the cop's lawyer's own admission it only happened because of its publicity.

Re: Barefoot and Pregnant

My point is all of your answers are right in the post, like sure it was risky, he might start catching fists, that risk is NOTHING compaired to the risk to Crews' career, freedom and public image and you know this. I cant believe you live in a world where you dont. I want you to be at least that und...

He also demoted a veteran sergeant down to patrol cop. Like that's literally a 'fuck your pension you should quit' demotion.

Re: Barefoot and Pregnant

Also, do you LIKE often coming off as the least introspective person on these boards? Like not only are you implying overtly that you dont understands the power dynamic in play between rich white people and minorities they essentially think of as their servents but you're also going to subtly imply ...

Re: Barefoot and Pregnant

Why, you think a black man can just kick rich white dude's ass for touching him? Hell Crews even says that he wouldnt even have been able to see the headlines about a huge black man kicking a fragile white man's ass the next day because hed be in jail.

Waypoint Radio : On the other hand, do you want a gaming podcast that actually has something to say?

Re: Rooty-tooty point and shootys

I keep hearing people say that bump stocks "simulate" full-auto fire, which just strikes me as transparently euphemistic. When your gun is vomiting 500 rounds per minute, there's nothing "simulated" about it. Like, okay, the gun is still technically a semi-auto; if the stock wer...

Re: Rooty-tooty point and shootys

Yeah its so fucking disingenuous. People seem not to realize that semi-auto fire guns are reloaded with literal fucking explosive force and speed. The ONLY THING stopping a semi-auto rifle from being a full auto rifle IS the fact that you have to fire every bullet manually. An explosion is a hell of...

Re: Rooty-tooty point and shootys

Lets also not lose sight of the fact that the WHITE HOUSE has already come out and said now is not the time to talk about gun control, so tangentially related might be the best we get honestly.... as shitty as that is, don't get me wrong I'm not for that in any way.

Yeah it was 90 degrees a week ago and now its 55. The midwest can be a fickle asshole but in the end I still live in Wisconsin.

Re: Bogus, batshit, banal, bizarre, or bicubic: Assorted News

When youre hounded daily (and rightly) about your protection of bigots the best thing to do to appease the masses is to completely ignore that issue and then allow those same bigots to be more verbose in their abuse.

If there's a better example of Donald Trump's complete tone-deafness and hubris than picking a fight with the fucking NFL, I haven't seen it. It's pretty amusing to see all the people swearing they're going to boycott the NFL and its sponsors, too. Yeah. Sure you are. A guy who CHOOSES to call hims...

Re: Race: The Final Frontier

One of the craziest things about all this blowup over players kneeling for the Anthem is that players were usually not even on the field when it was played until 2009 when the military started paying them for advertising for recruitment. John McCain literally passed a bill against this in 2015, of c...

Re: Let's all go to the movies~

People keep asking my why I haven't seen IT yet at the box office and I'm like, "I'm still afraid of clowns from the '90 miniseries."

Re: Gamerbois Gone Wild(ly Racist)

I think a lawyer could argue that PDP being a racist could impose some loss of sale or reputation on them which wouldn't be covered under fair use, or so I'm told I don't know I'm not a lawyer.

Re: Books

I know Rothfuss is a great follow on twitter and when he was on MBMBaM he was great, I'll check it out. However, I mostly dont like period fantasy. I like more sci-fi and contemporary fantasy, thats not to say a good fantasy book isn't something I'd read, I just dont really prefer it.

Re: Books

So I've been mostly out of fiction reading for about a decade or more now. I still read, Roxane Gay is ony of my favorite current authors, for example, but haven't been keeping up at all with fiction. I'm looking for some good "new" (mind you I'm out of the loop by about 15 years so new to...
