Wow. You admire someone’s ability to be an unrepentant bigot. Bravo, you are also an asshole.

If you slash the tires, hell yeah I’m just gonna let you. You are clearly a psychotic maniac with a knife, and I got insurance. If you slap my partner, I’m gonna try and stop her from pounding you into a paste and urge her to leave. She has a temper and she can look after herself. Neither case is gonna involve the Read more

Thank you for your reply Joel. Yes, I realize the contradiction in absolutely being opposed to saying “All Lives Matter” but also thinking “don’t all trans lives matter?” and that’s something I just have to work on. Thank you again for taking a moment to explain and really drive it home.

Minority communities were impacted greater than white communities. This has led to a presumption by white communities that susceptibility to Coronavirus is tied to socio-economic/race conditions. NOT, with being in non-essential jobs or being able to work from home. Read more

You Americans and your funny illusions of freedom. You may be armed against the tyranny of government (a threat which isn’t really that significant in the civilised world right now) but you’ve disarmed yourselves against corporate tyranny (a threat which is significant). You’ve become so myopic about the government Read more

That first one is the reason I’m stoked. My PC burned in the camp fire last year and I haven’t built a new one yet. I very well may not, now. This appears to be good enough to run my steam games on, I’ll have to give it a try.

Texture was a big part of my picky eating as a kid. I couldn’t stand any detectable fat or gristle on meat or skin on chicken, and given that kids don’t often have the fine motor skills to precisely cut those parts off a steak, it meant I didn’t often like eating steak. Similarly, I didn’t understand the point of Read more

To summarize an old post of mine, Gamers were never to really prepared to have their hobby *actually* treated like the form of art they always kept shouting that it was. They’re art when it needs to be protected, but they’re mindless toys come time to examine them.

I keep a safety pin pinned inside my laptop bag. In a pinch it is a port lint remover, a SIM tray puller, a short-circuit builder, and, in more pedestrian moments, an emergency clothing repair device. Read more

Ugh... but what happens when it’s only specific chargers, other ones stay plugged in well!

Looks like my level of sarcasm isn’t obvious enough in this age of knee-jerk reactions. Let me try this again. My friend was an idiot who blamed Apple for her own stupidity and I was trying to help others avoid the same fate. And for the record, I’m on team Apple and believe that Google is the one making the garbage Read more

I am in my early 30s and have lived in The United States of America for my entire life. I am African-American and me and my family have been victims of the most oppressive and difficult elements of modern capitalism. Read more

Nobody who has suffered under Capitalism, or you know, has read a history book, thinks Capitalism is a good thing. It’s just old burnt out yuppies, dumb Boomers who think they’re oppressed, and actual violent revolutionaries who think Capitalism works. Ask the ghosts of 100 million people who died under its heel in Read more

I love how these people breeze past the problems of capitalism. I’ve walked capitalist countries all over the world and in many - most - I see orphans, with various deformities, begging on the street in the middle of the night, alone. Even the intact families struggle to survive. Don’t even get me started on what Read more

I'd rephrase that to “5 years ago people gave less of a shit about those around them, but now we realize that words mean things and value not making jokes at the expense of vulnerable people.”
