    How do you find the look and feel of the new site?

    I haven't been around too much so I don't have a whole lot to add, but I do find the new design sort of loud and distracting. I don't even know why exactly, because it's not all that different from the previous version. Might just take some getting used to, or could just be old age. All I know is suddenly my eyes hurt .

    MatoMaster achieves NML 400 Kills!

    He makes it look so easy, but this is so unbelievably hard. He gets caught on the stairs with 332 kills, and that could easily have been the end of the run. So much has to go right for this to happen, and my hat goes off to him. Really impressive.
  3. It's a Bill Hicks joke. It was a retweet from a Bill Hicks fan page.
  4. I like how Jon Stewart mocks Bill O'Reilly's outrage at how the media is misrepresenting this case, and then Stewart himself goes on to misrepresent the case. He makes several good points in there about race, like how clueless Sean Hannity is that most black people probably aren't given the benefit of the doubt by a police officer if they're holding a weapon. Unfortunately, he's tying them into a case where they don't apply. Because Brown was given the benefit of the doubt, until he initiated a physical attack on a police officer. This wasn't a case of a stop and frisk gone wrong, or police harassment in any way. All of our attention should be paid to Eric Garner right now. That's a pretty horrifying example of how a police officer can kill you on videotape, and face no repercussions.
  5. @ It's not really helpful to make that argument because the black and white experience in this country is so much different, but that does happen, and there is no attention paid to it. This happened 2 years ago: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/nov/27/white-teen-gilbert-collar-killed-by-black-cop-trev/ This happened a few months ago: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/sep/3/justice-dillon-taylor-after-white-utah-man-fatally/ In fact, there's video of that last one. The victim walks away as the officer first comes up with his hand in his waistband, the officer yells for him to get his hands up, he turns around, says no and continues to walk backwards. When he pulls his hand out of his waistband, the officer shoots and kills him. That shooting was determined by prosecutors to be justified. There has been no outrage about this, even though by all accounts he was acting significantly less aggressive than Brown was. If you want to talk about class divide, or aggressive police tactics, that's fine. Let's stop pretending this case is anything beyond that though. If you haven't already, you should read Tall Man by Chloe Hooper. It's about the death of an indigenous man in police custody. You seem really focused on the racial divide in America, but your country is dealing with the same issues.
  6. Direct your anger here. The ineptitude in this situation is staggering. http://www.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2014/11/cleveland_police_officer_shot_1.html?hootPostID=09fa94c1dad600dd537d9070c534331b
  7. Let me add a few examples of what I find to be infuriating deficiencies in law enforcement policy. This American Life on NPR this week (http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/540/a-front) featured a story about some really shitty tactics the ATF was using, based on the reporting of the Milwaukee Wisconsin Journal Sentinel. You can read more about that here: http://www.jsonline.com/watchdog/backfire-190528221.html This article (http://www.salon.com/2013/07/07/%E2%80%9Cwhy_did_you_shoot_me_i_was_reading_a_book_the_new_warrior_cop_is_out_of_control/) is over a year old but details more frivolous police work ending in the deaths of innocent people. The woman's struggle in this (http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-watch/wp/2014/09/03/how-st-louis-county-missouri-profits-from-poverty/) piece is a great example of the de facto taxes we have on poor people in this country. It transcends race. Even as a white male, I've had to sit in a jail cell because I couldn't afford to drive two states away to be in court for a ticket I couldn't pay, at a time in my life when I lost 20 pounds in 2 months because I could barely buy food. Eric Garner (http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/Eric-Garner-Chokehold-Police-Custody-Cause-of-Death-Staten-Island-Medical-Examiner-269396151.html) is a great example of someone who was unjustly harassed and ended up dead.
  8. If we take the official account to be true, then Mike Brown hit a police officer in the face and went for his gun. There's not many ways that situation can end, a situation that the victim put himself in. No one else. There's some indication that Brown was 140 feet away from Wilson when he was shot, not the 35 or so that the police claim. If that's true, and Brown also wasn't charging the officer then I think it's enough to say the shooting wasn't justified. Again though, none of this happens if Brown doesn't reach for a police officer's gun. There are many instances of police officers overstepping their bounds in this country, and killing unarmed people who were not a threat. Everyone should be mad about that. I don't think this is one of those cases. I also don't think this has anything to do with race, and to accuse people who defend Wilson of being racist is absolutely ludicrous.

    Homosexuality / Marriage

    I don't have the energy to read the rest of this, but I will say that he was absolutely comparing homosexuality to child molestation and bestiality. Marriage was traditionally between a man and woman, obviously, for procreation. It was how you retained land and property through generations. The world is different now, and there's no reason to hold on to this nonsense anymore. Anyone who wants to make an argument against gay marriage is a fool, and by definition a bigot. You can't say you believe in equal rights for everyone, except for certain rights for certain people.

    It is a shame, because it's a great game. GTA Online just ended up not having a lot of replayability after the initial few months. I like it, but there's not a lot of reason to go back and play it.

    Everyone should immediately rush to the store and get Krispy Kreme pumpkin spice donuts.

    Before Facebook changed its timeline and the news feed algorithm and all that, it was pretty useful. You could see what your friends were doing, what bar or beach access they were at, make plans for that night, etc. Then in the morning there was always pictures from the night before, people commiserating about their hangovers, or pleas to get breakfast. Also always had the occasional interesting article or cool picture. Most importantly, only the people you wanted to see pop up on your timeline actually did. Once they changed that, it all went to shit. It's just a stream of nonsense pictures and videos now. Just strangers posting memes about how Hitler took away guns from the Jews to start the Holocaust or Obama forcing everyone to do muslim prayers in the White House. I deleted it 2 years ago and haven't missed it once.

    Happy Birthday @Boom . It's not too late to adopt some valley girl slang to fit in better out there.
