The idiot I'm arguing with cries "Godwin's!"

Alexis: And they were obstructing the police, but it was still a lawful protest.
Me: Nice of you to to admit they were breaking the law.
Alexis: N-no I didn't! They were peaceful, unarmed protestors! I didn't mean "obstruction" in the legal sense!
Me: You already said that they went there deliberately to protest. You said they were obstructing the police. The definition of obstruction in that state is willing and knowing obstruction of the police's duties. Unless you want to argue they were accidentally blocking the police's transport of prisoners.
Alexis: The police didn't give a lawful order!
Me: Doesn't matter whether the cops ordered them or not. The protestors specifically stated their intent to obstruct the officers unless their demands were met, and took actions, by your own admission, to keep the cops from doing their job. That is probable cause for an arrest.
Alexis: But it was police brutality!
Me: No, they used standard force for an arrest with a resisting perpetrator.
Alexis: But they were innocent, unarmed, legal protestors!
Me: If they broke the law, their protest was by definition, illegal. Not to mention threatening the cops, which is legally a riot.

I used two last night.

Two were left this morning when I happened to open the freezer drawer.

I hate my flatmates so very much.

Either I bought milk that someone had cracked, or one of my flatmates somehow managed to unravel two reef knots on a plastic bag, take off the lid with "WOOD" in it in block capitals, crack the seal, and only then realized that it wasn't their milk and put it back in the fridge. Since it was on its side and those bottles aren't airtight, a significant portion of the milk spilled out.

Either that, or one of my flatmates is a selfish dick. I don't know which.

In a debate about sexism and objectification by gender, a guy said that a man being promised he will shortly become a prisoner's "bitch" is not misandrist at all, but actually solely misogynist, because it uses a comparison to a woman as a pejorative.

I clarified the term.

He insisted the actual rape part was irrelevant next to being compared to a woman.

I am now so angry the muscles in my neck feel like high-tension wires.

Wow, this must be how scans_daily feels all the time.

Apparently, she wanted the deals enough to use pepper spray.

Then I check the comments, and I find lots of Europeans wagging their heads about how "consumerist" and materialistic those stupid Americans are.

Because all Americans are totally united about this, and the one woman at the one store represents absolutely everyone in the entire country.

controversial footnote, maybe )

Apologist: People who pirate games to test them should buy them? That's like saying anyone who has pre-marital sex should get married.
Me: Well, since piracy requires that the thing being pirated is taken without permission, it's more like rape.
Apologist: it's not!
Me: If two people have sex, and one person doesn't want it, it's rape. Your analogy is flawed.
Apologist: Stop that! My analogy is fine! You're just jumped to the comparison to the worst possible thing! Copying bits is not comparable to one person forcing themselves on another! What next, are you going to compare piracy to Hitler?
Me: So it is comparable to pre-marital sex, but not pre-marital rape. You don't actually have a single bit of actual logic explaining how I'm wrong, do you?

Tracy Morgan Attempts To Clarify His Homophobic Comments

Over the last week, Tracy Morgan has gotten a verbal tongue-lashing from friends, co-workers, gay rights groups and a horde of internet users thanks to some homophobic comments he made during a stand-up routine. Of all the artistic pursuits, stand-up comedy has become perhaps the last unchecked bastion for uncensored and politically-incorrect conversation. That freedom is worth having, and it’s worth defending.
This is one of those times when people misunderstand the First Amendment, which concerns governmental regulation of expression. Being able to say almost whatever you want does not mean you should be exempt from the consequences. If that was true, then there wouldn't be laws about perjury and slander, and that whole "fire" in a crowded theatre thing.

>leave on draining board
>flatmates use without permission and don't wash
>make bacon
>leave dirty pot on stove
>nobody touches it
>make bacon in recently acquired George Foreman grill
>nobody touches that either

So the only way to keep inconsiderate flatmates from using my stuff seems to be leave a layer of bacon fat all over them.

One of the flatmates in question is a fairly affable guy, but rather selfish. I walked into the kitchen last week to find him using a can opener to open a tuna tin. he asked if I had one, and I coldly said he was already using it, whereupon he asked for permission. I told him to wash it afterward. not only did he not wash it, he went and used my table knife from the same cupboard, again without washing.

I've confronted him already about the friends he brings over getting into my food, but seriously.

Look, buddy, I doubt an official Scrubs website would have the copyright at the bottom claiming ownership only for the content of the site, and disavowing responsibility for anything hosted on external websites. No, it's not a "paranoid conspiracy theory", and stop talking over me with that smug grin on your face. The official Scrubs website wouldn't need to use external hosts, it wouldn't use Google ads, and it wouldn't be so ugly. The fact that it changed ownership, whether true or not, has nothing to do with the fact that you're not watching it on an official website.

In fact, gentle reader, why not decide for yourself? Which one of these is not an official Scrubs website?
Sincerely, Jonn )

Prince Harry shipping home from Iraq.

Y'know what's funny? I was listening to the BBCW report on this, and they made such a big deal about how Harry's location was such a closely guarded secret. Daddy laughed when I said "Not any more, it ain't."

Don't these vultures understand that leaking this info could get innocent men and women killed, as well as the Prince?

Dear Internets,

Let me see if I can understand your logic.

You like the movie.
You think it was excellently directed, shot, acted in, etc.
You think more people should see it.


You upload the entire thing to YouTube.

Nope, I still don't understand.
