    That's just basic human decency. Charging him would be greedy.

    See, that's why these attacks on Obamacare are futile. Now that people see the benefits of it, only the rich and the raving idealogues are going to want it gone. Because it helps people. They may see...

    I got in an argument with a Christian with one of these persecution complexes where I offhandedly suggested that people shouldn't tell other people what to do or how to live their lives. The...

    A couple of my friends when I was a kid had it growing in their front yard. It's nice and tangy, but I've always liked sour stuff.

    I just don't understand why you pose these as if they were questions when you always tell us the answers. The title of this essay should have been "Loyalty is for the Weak." Don't bury the lede.

    Sticky: Don't try to search for some objective, ultimate,...

    Don't try to search for some objective, ultimate, universally agreed upon meaning in a piece of art, because you're never going to find it. Think about what it means to you. Your interpretation is...

    I wonder, is there a movement to shame people for using the term "baka" in Japan as a insult the way they do in anime? Do people ask you to please use a more politically correct term for mental...

    Let it all hang out is what I say. I like seeing what people look like naked. Human bodies are interesting and there's a lot of variety.

    I do feel what's good for the goose is good for the gander,...

    That's kinda like trying to understand American culture by reading Jughead. You'll get a general idea of it, sure, but it might be a little strange and skewed when compared to actual reality.

    Geeks use Twitter to bully now. And then they scream their free speech was violated when one of their victims uses one of the tools built into Twitter for exactly this purpose instead of just sitting...

    My iPad Air 2 is big enough that I can read comfortably. I do wish it was standard comic book size, but I don't have to pinch and zoom unless it's tiny text or a double page.

    I don't recoomend...
  16. There is a difference, but catering a wedding...

    There is a difference, but catering a wedding isn't attaching your name to it. You don't get your name on a marquee, any more than the janitors who clean up afterward. It's just a service. It's just...
  17. Is there still a video store where you live?

    Maybe this is sad, but when I was a kid one of my favorite things to do was to go to one of our local video stores. My weekends revolved around it. I'd go and pick out a couple of sci-fi or horror...

    I wish I had thought of this when we had people in here screaming that we have to be tolerant of their intolerance, for reasons. I didn't, but here is a relevant quote from philosopher Karl Popper...

    The sad thing is the example in the OP is relatively harmless compared to what some creators have to deal with. Jerks badgered poor Cameron Stewart over the Batgirl thing so much he had to protect...

    Bluntly, by choosing that cover as an avatar you say "Fuck you, SJWs." That's the real, ugly motivation when verbal, moral and cognitive gymnastics are stripped away. Actually, it's not really about...

    Regarding the gif:

    Personally, I've lived a hard life and worked in a tough and despised industry where I dealt with a lot of abuse. There's really no insult anyone could throw at me that would...

    Sure, but it seems a little harsh to compare someone who is experiencing perhaps unconscious privilege, or even a person who is aware of their privilege and attempting to make things more equitable,...

    I can understand using cracker as an insult for someone who acts like a slave owner or slave driver. But it doesn't seem fair as a generic term for white person. I mean, I joined the NAACP, and I...

    Rednecks are oppressed. They usually don't realize it, but it's still true.

    I'm uncomfortable with any stereotyping with a racial or regional component, regardless of who is being stereotyped. It...
