As others may or may not have noticed, what recently makes my toes curl is not great arguments that give one the feeling of "wow, such amaze, very impress" or some FOX caliber conservative radical... no, rather i live for the arguments that catch you like a bass in spring - and then the discourse takes a sharp turn, making you cringe and clench your teeth in loathing...

This person starts analysing in a matter worthy of Bruno Bettelheim in his "The uses of enchantment: the meaning and importance of fairy tales" - but at some point, his interpretations stop making sense as they lose a basis to support them, starts talking about real people, then groups of people and goes off the deep end...

well yea, but she-Hulks thing isn't crawling up buildings in a spider-like manner. One of her things however, was jump roping naked for an entire issue once.

Pop quiz, hotshot: Is this sexualizing or objectifying?

Eh, preliminary samples of voting, at least in my country's experience, is a way of slanting the undecided population towards a certain decision by peer pressure; i read in some article that around 40% of the voters were "undecided" as of yesterday night or todays morning.


To be honest, I couldnt care less about comics, I bring this up rather for the amusement of the arguments that arose around the given issue... Its like Rhetorics 101 if you ask me!

The important points is how this person brings up important facts that debunk general opposition stance which is hypocritical and uninformed, but then proceeds to make some very strange argumentative square dancing which will leave nobody satisfied.

The only ways to "change reality" is either thru a change in the interpretation of the meaning of it or thru taking action.

But I think IM retarded, that must mean I'm Illuminated.

Seriously now, I did really like the part on how some people think that they hold a neutral objective viewpoint that is TRULY TRUE and cannot be contested by the different subjectivities every single human has.

The guardians of "truth and objectivity" are always either despots, bigots or just plain clueless... rather the posture of doubt and uncertainty, channeled thru the proper means of a methodology (im looking at you conspiracy theorists) is the closest we can get to veracity and not being assholes.

I dont know what adjectives to use, but this made me sad in a nice way.

Flamethrowers as biological warfare are supposedly banned practices.

11 gunshots just to incapacitate someone? Did he even have a knife?

But surveilance of officers will impede their duty and put them at risk.  :showus:

I think it's adorable.  We contrive such fragile systems of thinking and then huff and puff about it. :lulz:

They're not really constructed, so much as they evolve over time. I'm fairly certain there have never been any Jewish carpenters who were able to stop storms, walk on water, and rise from the dead. But I'm also fairly certain at least one Jewish carpenter just kinda said, "Fuck this hammering. I'm gonna preach!" one day. Where that other stuff came in, I don't know. Maybe they did some good drugs. But Christianity didn't come out of thin air, and it certainly wasn't contrived like Scientology or Discordia.


Oh, and there's a video of the "brutal robbery", you know.

There Brown is, paying for his cigars. (at 36 seconds)


Ferguson police's attempts to demonize Michael Brown, the unarmed African-American teen killed by Officer Darren Wilson, may have hit a small snag. The very video they released at the same time as they identified Wilson as the officer responsible for shooting Brown six times, including twice in the head, may show the opposite of what they intended.

Supposedly, the video shows Brown robbing the store, taking a box of cigars. However, the attorney for Ferguson Market says that it was not anyone from the store that called police to report a robbery. In fact, a customer called to report what he viewed as a robbery.

How, then, did police get the tape? According to St. Louis News, the attorney said, "Ĺduring the course of Ferguson's investigation, the police department from Ferguson, came to the store and asked for to review the tape." In other words, the tape was not viewed by police until after Michael Brown was dead in the street.

In their fervent effort to cast Brown in a  negative light, they missed that the video seems to show Brown paying for the Swisher Sweets.

The confrontation between Brown and the clerk may have been because Brown impatiently reached across the counter. Perhaps it was wrong for Brown to shove the employee (it is impossible to know what words were exchanged) but this footage seems to exonerate him. It is important to note that Brown only shoved the clerk after he put his hands on him.

In any case, neither the employee nor the store owner called law enforcementľsomething that would surely happen if Brown committed a "strong-arm robbery."

So, Von, care to explain why it was a "brutal robbery"? 

Not that it's really necessary, of course.  Your standards for what constitutes a criminal are painfully obvious by this point.

Where did Von go?  He was just here a minute ago.   :lulz:

I went to work, thats where.
cant view the video on this phone. Give me around 16 hours, ill have a response by that point.

Spoiler alert. It shows the deceased acquiring cigars by legal means.

Huh, interdasting.
Ill be waiting for a video explaining how the shooting officer received a fractured eye then.

Concerning journalists:
although unfortunate, keeping them in press areas is good for their safety considering recent events such as msnbc correspondants being pelted with rocks, vice correspondants being pelted with bottles, and several miscellaneous blog-tier journalists getting robbed.

either way, im sure the window repair market in ferguson will be booming in the coming months.

Yes citizen, why dont you keep to protest designated areas in the middle of nowhere and obey curfew? Why wont you let us "safety" you and your fellows? Why do you force me to pacify you?


Atheists are basically boring Satanists; lacking the booze, bikes, drugs and humour.
