The Richard Nixon school of ballet and the arts / Re: This article gives me the wobblies for some reason.« on: January 04, 2013, 08:41:44 pm »
So let me guess, next is the 'Hierarchy of Cancers'?
If you really want to hurt your parents, and you don't have the nerve to be a homosexual, the least you can do is go into the arts. But do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites, standing for absolutely nothing. All they do is show you've been to college.

I work with some stupid kids, man. In the sense that these kids are fucked over by the world from day one, before they're even born. It's easy to see where a lot of these guys are headed, and it isn't anywhere good. They are going to do some stupid things, and end up in stupid places. I probably wouldn't like the adults many of them are going to become. But only a monster would feel disdain for these kids. Only a monster would fail to feel compassion.
Well, they were born guilty. Lots of people are. It's not their fault, but there you have it. Take any of them and put them in front of a jury in Oro Valley, and they'd be sent to prison for life, before any charges are named.
Guilty = WRONG = Stupid = tired and poor and weak.
Innocent = RIGHT = Smart = rich and powerful.
Don't forget, going on camera, and crying about your dead friend is somehow Metallica's fault.
To be honest though, if those guys hadn't been on TV, everyone would have gotten massive pedo vibes off them anyway. I mean, imagine seeing the ghoulish viasge of Jimmy Savile without ever having known of him before. My first reaction as an adult would be to look for a knife and then a wall to put my back to.
We should probably define a few terms here:
Uneducated - While a person may be smart or stupid, they lack the tools to put what brainpower they have to use, or to optimum use.
Stupid - The condition of ignoring skills learned when attempting a task or conversation.
Willfully ignorant - The condition of NOT WANTING the tools to use your intelligence, because you've put on a uniform that disagrees with those tools for one reason or another.
Smart - The condition of having the brains, education, and emotional stability required to make good decisions.
Fool. - One who blindly follows the reasoning of another, because thinking for themselves is either too much bother, or they need to follow the pack.
Brain damaged - Physical damage to the brain that prevents one from learning or making good decisions.
Emotionally impaired - The condition of having emotions overriding thought.
Dunning/Kruger - I am a genius in all things, surrounded by retards. I know more about your specialty than you do, even though I have no training in the field.
Anyone want to change or add to this?
http://davidhencke.wordpress.com/2012/12/14/exclusive-police-re-open-investigation-into-london-political-paedo-ring/QuoteExaro News ( http://www.exaronews.com) today reveals that for the last two months the police have secretly been scoping a new investigation into senior politicians and their involvement in a paedophile ring, involving under age boys, that took place in the 1980s.
This is separate to the current Operation Yewtree investigation into Jimmy Savile and other celebrities, which mainly involves under age girls.
They are looking again at a raid that took place in 1982 on a guest house in Barnes, south London, which appeared to be being used as a gay brothel and was frequented by prominent figures including, I am told, ministers, Tory MPs, a Liberal MP and two Labour Mps. Under age boys in the care of Richmond council and other local authorities were visiting or staying at the guest house.
However, it should be noted that the police reasons for investigating this might not be out of genuine concern for the victims and a sense of justice.
As anyone who has been following the "Plebgate" scandal knows, it seems the Metropolitan Police are not very happy with the Tories, and indeed attempted to stitch up the Chief Whip with a faked but plausible controversy.
My belief is that the cuts, along with the handling of the Leveson Inquiry, made the police very unhappy with the Tories, and there is a simmering sense of resentment among the rank and file...the sort of feeling that leads to bent coppers trying every dirty trick in the book to get their target in trouble.
Such a ring may exist. Actual members of the ring may even be implicated. But then again, maybe they won't be.
I think the chip on his shoulder from being kicked out of Metallica mestastisised to turn him into a gigantic asshole, but I guess the drugs blunted it back in the 80s and 90s. He's such a whiney prick.
1920 Firearms Act started it off, really, though there was some pistol legislation in 1903.
Basically, post-WWI fear of social unrest, Communism and crime led to the need for licences to buy firearms, and to provide reasons for wanting them.
QuoteHe made the point that the 2nd Amendment was not a new idea but merely existed to enshrine existing rights carried over from English law. (Cue the delicious irony that 99.9% of all Brits think Americans are impossibly stupid and irresponsible for loving guns so much.)
Well, that's just the British, not knowing their own history (nothing new there). In Victorian England, you could buy a gun for personal use, no questions asked, no forms to fill in. A gentleman was practically required to own at least one handgun and one hunting rifle.
