Re: Ferguson, #BlackLivesMatter, #ShutItDown Solidarity Acti

VindicatedPurpose: The excess of force? Sure. It could have been done in a non-lethal manner such as shooting the attackers legs or pelvis (pelvis would probably be more of an ouch though). Perhaps, but now it's essentially a "what if?" situation. Police are trained to shoot to kill, beca...

Re: Ferguson, #BlackLivesMatter, #ShutItDown Solidarity Acti

So the Ferguson case was not a matter of race? It was one 18 year old man who robbed a convenience store, and remained belligerent as a police officer attempted to bring him into custody or arrest him. Six shots were fired into Michael Brown's body. The officer, Darren Wilson, claimed that he was s...

Re: Ferguson, #BlackLivesMatter, #ShutItDown Solidarity Acti

Sure. The rioting and demonstrations and protests are, now at least, centered around fighting racial inequality and police abuse. I'm not saying those things don't happen. What I'm saying is that the spark that caused it, the shooting of Mike Brown, was neither racially motivated nor unjustified.

Re: Ferguson, #BlackLivesMatter, #ShutItDown Solidarity Acti

First off, I understand systemic racism. Growing up Hispanic in Texas, I lived it, so believe me when I tell you that I'm with you on the whole, "racism is culturally ingrained and lots of people do it without even realizing it," part. However, and I'm likely to catch some serious flak for...

Re: ISIS and Your Thoughts?

I think that Muhammad was reputed to have beheaded some five hundred people himself, but I'm not sure on the source of that. He did spread Islam through the sword. It also says somewhere in the Q'uran to respect people of the Book, retaliation is only a last resort if others defame their beliefs. I...

Re: ISIS and Your Thoughts?

Those guys are assholes! I literally just finished my two weeks of AT and I get notified today that I might get switched to active duty because of this whole mess, which of course means the possibility of deploying abroad somewhere for who the fuck knows how long.

Ughhh I can't even right now D:

Re: Gay Rights (Religion and Homosexuality)

For many gay Americans they're just gay. For others they are homosexual and black, and as a person of color I can tell you without question that even as a straight male my sexuality is never a concern to people. More people care about and discriminate towards myself and others because of what I and...

Re: Gay Rights (Religion and Homosexuality)

Does it have to apply to other species? Humans are in many ways more different than the closest organism to our DNA. Why shouldn't it? What makes humanity so special that, of the hundreds of species in which homosexuality occurs, we are the only ones that are not born that way? It's arrogant and na...

Re: Movie Quote Game!

That's from The Fifth Element, between the police chief and Bruce Willis' character Korben. Great movie!

Re: Should Role players live by universal rules?

In my tabletop gaming group, composed of Reserve buddies, we have three sacred rules: 1. Don't be a dick. 2. Don't be an idiot 3. No crying. They are, of course, a straight ripoff of the "rules" we abide by on our IDT days, and they work wonders. Our campaigns are always fun, smooth, and v...

Re: Is Work Ethical?

Not to overstate the importance of one psychologist's theories compared to others, under Maslow's hierarchy of needs, you are looking at basic "Safety" needs here. The best life is a Self-Actualized one, not one where basic needs are barely being met. Firstly, I did mention happiness, whi...

Re: Monster Hearts

@ViceVersus I think Alacyn would be a great seating partner for Wade, and doubly so if she's the girl he's into. It would make a lot of sense as well. I mean, he could have practically anyone he wants, but she's one of the few people who wants nothing to do with anyone, let alone him. It's only natu...

Re: Monster Hearts

1. Why did you sneak out that night, when you got turned? Was it to rebel against your foster parents, or was there something specific? It was stupid, is what it was. I should have heeded their warnings. I should have told them about the party. Maybe then they would have taken me themselves. But I ...
