Holy crap, slower traffic keep right. I remember watching that video maybe 10 years ago. Looks like someone reposted it as new.

Nope. It was March 18, 2016.

Here's a story about the pilots getting their well-deserved medals.

I sitting in my computer room sobbing because the neighbors dogs are treated like garbage by their owner. He's out looking for another place to live and said he won't be back until the end of the month. He's basically left them alone in the backyard and made no arrangements to have someone care for them. My heart is crushed because they're so aggressive to me, but I'd like to give them food and water. The hours-long barking is unreal, but I'm not even mad at the dogs. How could I? I'm mad at the owner for being this way.

What a shitty situation. I think this may be a reason for a call to the authorities?

If you want to feed them, I bet they'd warm up to you pretty fast, but I understand not wanting to risk being bitten.

Says 60% of snakebites are alcohol related, and 70-75% are attempts to capture the snake. The overlap makes sense, as catching a snake sounds like a drunken plan.

How did we know he was going to kick the dog? It just looked like he ran towards it.

I think it's the way he flew through the air feet first towards the dog? Anyway, the running alone is a giveaway... that's not how anyone approaches a dog to pet it.

Anyway, way too late, I thought of the actual proper comment for this.

Karma's a bitch.

Ahh the fucking idiot trolls are out in force today. Seriously Blue, you remove my post while you let the motherfuckers troll away? Fuck you man.

Why did I remove your post that got reported when I didn't remove one from after that which didn't get reported? Because I don't actively look to scrub posts, the idea is to let you guys talk.

And why did your post get deleted? Because anytime anyone crosses you, you go straight to the nuclear option. Like you did here in our little teachable moment.

Maybe all of us can work on being a little more civil? Seems like we're driving off the moderates, and I keep getting calls to ban the radicals. That's not how I want to deal with this, but I don't like the trend either.

Yeah, a sentence from the following story decided to sneak into this one. It did this on its own, I take no responsibility.

Why is Portal in this list and not Doom? I mean Portal was a nice little puzzle game and it was followed by some other puzzle games, but Doom basically started the whole FPS genre which Halo was only a small part off...

I said the Hall is a newb, but it is not brand new. Here's word on the current roster:

Inductees to the World Video Game Hall of Fame—DOOM, Grand Theft Auto III, The Legend of Zelda, The Oregon Trail, Pac-Man, Pong, The Sims, Sonic the Hedgehog, Space Invaders, Super Mario Bros., Tetris, and World of Warcraft—are on permanent view in the museum’s eGameRevolution exhibit.

"Where are they" is indeed what most of us say, but it is technically wrong by the rules of grammar, which obnoxiously call for "he" or less commonly "she" in this case.


What? No it's not / what rules?

edit: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singular_they

From that article:

"The singular they had emerged by the 14th century and is common in everyday spoken English, but its use has been the target of criticism since the late 19th century. Its use in formal English has increased with the trend toward gender-inclusive language."

And their point about its recent uptick is the same distinction we already discussed here, that its increased use is to be gender-inclusive, not gender-neutral.

Let's see now, I've decided that I don't identify with my age, so instead I will identify with all ages, which means everyone should be 100% accepting of me hanging out in school playgrounds.

You see where this bullshit is going, right?

Sure, I see where your bullshit is going. You are trying to turn this into a completely inaccurate "slippery slope" argument.

Pedophiles are next in line for "acceptance". Believe it. Look between your fucking legs... that is WHAT YOU ARE. Pretending not to be in your head is a mental illness, period.

Called it. You conjured up a pedophile straw man.

Quboid wrote on Mar 26, 2017, 00:53:
Haven't we all used "they" as a gender-neutral pronoun for centuries?

"I was supposed to meet someone here an hour ago."
a) "Oh, where are they?"
b) "Oh, where is he or she?"

This was the only point I was making. "Where are they" is indeed what most of us say, but it is technically wrong by the rules of grammar, which obnoxiously call for "he" or less commonly "she" in this case.

"I was supposed to meet someone here an hour ago."
c) "Oh, where is he?"

That is the traditional correct usage, and I think it's high time we had a gender neutral pronoun for such situations. "They" gets used for this often, but has never been approved by any semi-official sources, and the headline to that story got my hopes up, but it turned out to be on a different topic.

As for that different topic, I always feel it is easy enough to refer to people the way they prefer. That's just simple respect and doesn't seem that difficult.

Hey Blue, how are your 76'ers doing? How you feeling for your Eagles upcoming season? Guess you're going to be eating a lot of Philly cheesesteaks this yeah, huh?

Yeah... I'll try the cheese steak thing at least, but not after you talk about the possibility of rooting for the Eagles, since that makes me throw up in my mouth.

6. Re: Amazon to expand counterfeit removal program in overture to sellers. Mar 23, 2017, 09:20  Blue 
 
jacobvandy wrote on Mar 22, 2017, 20:11:
Uh, how is that bad for consumers?

I wasn't saying it was bad for consumers. Just saying that we've had to suffer with counterfeit items on Amazon (and other places) for years, so labeling the move this way makes me feel like they don't consider it a problem for me if I'm fooled, it's just a problem for their other sellers.

"Amazon to expand counterfeit removal program to protect their valued customers" is a headline that would sit better with me.

I haven't seen it, and I doubt it's any good, but Casino Royale had in fact been done before. Plus, there was the Woody Allen parody film.

I've seen the Americanized version. It's as bad as it sounds. Want a laugh? Read up on the Woody Allen movie some time... Peter Sellers apparently wanted it to be a real James Bond movie starring him, and went full twat during production. Makes sense when you see how little sense the movie makes (even for a screwball comedy).

This is the Youtube generation. Every guy with at least a single working brain cell would have guessed that the train will turn that train station into a blizzard hotspot, but nooooo - for the video this guy and that stupid girl before him just stood there waiting for shit to happen. I am still waiting for the selfie of some idiot whose parachute did not open the moment he hits ground, smiling happyily because he knows this foto will get a billion likes.

Message to those guys: Darwin called - YOU ARE OUT!

BobBob wrote on Mar 14, 2017, 11:12:
It's not just the weather. Compared to Southern Californians, the people there seem a lot more stressed out, pushy, in your face, and take themselves far too seriously. I regularly visited Manhattan Upper East Side many years ago. I prefer our laid-back California beach culture that we have here. You too may realize that distinctive cultural difference and wish to return.

I can't see where you'd get the impression that New Yorkers are any of the things you describe. The epitome of polite behavior in the city is leaving other people alone and minding your own business, and unless confronted, that's most of them act. Not to presume, but describing people as "taking themselves far too seriously" (and all those other things for that matter) sounds like someone who wasn't respecting boundaries (perhaps by being too laid back?).

Hey Blue,

Can you see if you can email nin? He didn't set up the ability to email him through his user id. He's been gone for quite a while now...

I contacted him and was relieved to find out he's okay at least... he says he's taking a break, which is hopefully temporary.
