This photo is from a reproductive rights protest in Virginia. It's been making the rounds of Tumblr stressing out that a)this was at a peaceful protest, and b)it was in Virginia, not, Syria, Iraq, Egypt, etc.

You may find this offensive. )

>person he's arguing against calls it "hearsay"
>he points out that only second-or-more-order witness testimony is hearsay

WHERPS.

For the record, this person just keeps quoting people's posts and responding to a one or two point, while ignoring the rest, such as her being wrong about hearsay. She did this when I argued with her as well, including strawmanning furiously. It's obvious she doesn't actually read what people are saying, just what she wants to hear.

"When you see this movie, kids are going to believe one day these turtles actually do exist when we are done with this movie," said Michael Bay as he took the stage to discuss his new vision for the reptilian reboot. "These turtles are from an alien race, and they are going to be tough, edgy, funny and completely loveable."
The funny thing is that the franchise always had a load of aliens and sci-fi, and the goo that turned the turtles into mutants in the comic turned out to be from a research institute run by aliens. There was a whole arc about it. Yet fanboys are absolutely flipping their wigs. They are buying wigs in order to flip them. I am schadenfreuding so hard.

This is just another example of people saying Hollywood is original, then complaining when they change something in a way they don't like. And then there's the possibility that Bay meant "alien race" as in "strange and weird race".
