If the terms are undefined, the question is meaningless.


Ugh, sophists.

Considering I'm FANTASTICALY Caucasian, I should be able to get it to writhing a few meters.

Now I really want to do that genetic ancestry test, so I can get really specific when someone asks where I'm from.

Here's a hilarious update: Lysergic, not content with being a clock truther, now believes the Steele memo about Trump was faked by 4chan.  Or at least the golden shower part.  Despite the complete date disparity, and the fact that Steele was relying on Russian informants, not casually scoping out the latest /pol/ bullshit.
I saw that.  I was quietly amused.
Basing your value system and beliefs on a reaction to the value system and beliefs of other people is exactly the same as following the herd; it's not based on thinking.

I think there's a memebomb somewhere around here that echoes this sentiment.

Perhaps you feel the atheist in the OP is unduly idealized, because the OP is referring to an ideal.

In the same way, when someone talks about being a good Christian, they're not talking about a person, they're talking about the best kind of person a Christian can be.

It's a variation on the FB meme that floats around "why did god make atheists?" with the answer being "to show you that people can be good because they want to be, and not because of god" or something similar.

I just add, "speaking as a non-racist" at the end of all my sentences.

:golfclap:

But this also gives me a great idea... I'm going to start asking white people what part of Europe they're from. This is going to be hilarious!

This would be a fantastic stand-alone instagram account or tumblr page.

To be fair, I used Torgo's knees as a simile when I had gout.  Unfortunately, no one got the reference.

It happens every year in New England.  Every. Year.

I skip the milk and bread aisle, and head straight to the bone-in pork roasts.  If I'm going to be snowed in, it's gonna smell good in my house.

The question implies there's a state of being one can have where there is no bias, stereotyping, tribalism, or othering.

I question the truth value of that implication.

If I had the ability to think impossible thoughts, would a brain that is limited by possibility have the ability to process the discussion of my impossible thought to the point where it could even recognize the impossibility of the thought being discussed?

Please define the bolded.

Yeah, the OP is full of undefined terms.

It seems the question itself is an indicator against.

It's not as painful as "Manos"

When even MST3K can't save a movie....
