    That's because how I choose to self-identify has nothing to do with zoological dentistry. That's a false construct of your oppressive binary-gender regime.

    Btw, my preferred pronoun is 'stinger'

    Playing the victim card again?

    I was not talking about you.

    Something which could, maybe, if taken a certain way, victimize you is not necessarily even about you, let alone using that specific context which victimizes you.

    Which you are keen to point out about other people, but somehow insensitive to how often you do it.

    Just the fact that you would do a google search to try and challenge my saber-toothed identification is a micro-aggression against my right to self-identify as I please.

    I said I'm a saber-toothed scorpion. If your response to that is anything other than complete, unquestioning, unwavering acceptance....then you're a dangerous oppressor.

    Your assumption that my google search was to discredit you, rather than being spurned by my own selfish curiosity, is a mistake.

    That's the nature of a micro-aggression. You don't even know you're doing it.

    I told you, I'm a saber-toothed scorpion. And your first thought is "I wonder if that's real?"

    Well it is real, you intolerant fascist, I just said it was. I am a scorpion, and I have teeth. I'm not sure why your curiosity was spurned at all. You already have all the facts and have been presented with a definitive conclusion. Any other assertion is an offense against my individual rights.

    I find this hard to disagree with, especially because the first thing I did was google cunt teeth.

    I recently bought a chess computer from a charity shop for two quid. Turned it on an hour or two ago, immediately set it to top level (72), and currently playing a game. It's taking 10-15 minutes per move, while I'm taking a minute or two at most. I think I have a positional edge which will soon become a pawn advantage, but let's see what it's got. I want it to win, but it's probably too much to hope.

    False.
    I thought, "I wonder if any other scorpions have teeth."

    Your initial assertion that I was in any way referencing you was a mistake, your continued insistence that you get to decide the context of my statement is the real aggression, here.
    I wasn't talking about you.

    What do you have against other scorpions? Are you some kind of sabre-tooth-centric? Other scorpions with non-sabre teeth are offensive to you?

    I expressed curiosity and learning a new thing which I thought was cool. You're expressing judgement and condemnation. The aggressor here is you.

    False

    False again. Your insistence that I am not allowed to choose the context of my own perceptions is typical of primate oppressors.

    I wasn't talking about you.
    But you were thinking about me.

    What do you have against other scorpions? Are you some kind of sabre-tooth-centric? Other scorpions with non-sabre teeth are offensive to you?
    They are trying to monopolize the label of "scorpion" for themselves.

    I expressed curiosity hatred, bigotry, and species-phobia and learning a new thing form of micro-aggression which I thought was cool. You're expressing judgement and condemnation speaking out against intolerance and prejudice. The aggressor here is you a misguided monkey.

    I'm trying to put more effort in, but so far that has meant playing infinte plane chess and now bulldog chess, instead of reading up on classical openings. But with this computer I can have a game running all the time.

    We're around four hours in now, so far only a bishop/knight trade and no pawns captured, so yeah I think this might take a while. It just beeped, brb.

    How good do I think it is? Ask me after the game, which is likely to be finished tomorrow now (luckily it saves the current position). It doesn't take long to take it off its opening book. At the moment I'd guess it's around 1700 maybe? Probably on a par with my blitz game, but it isn't touching me if I analyse properly. But let's see how it copes with the middlegame. I think it's got a pawn, but it's coming at a cost. I'm going to have a lot of counterplay.

    Wait... I was absolutely sure you were being a straight man(in the comedic sense) to Banana's obvious, but nonetheless amazing satire.

    How could you possibly have taken that seriously?

    I am comically straight, though.

    E.g. I've had conversations with people I just met, and my friends were like, "You totally just flirted with that gay guy for an hour." And my response was, "I was just talking, not flirting." They were like, "He definitely thought you were flirting and was flirting back." I was all, "I don't even know what flirting is, then."

    I was in my mid 20's at the time.

    I doubt I know what flirting is any better today than I did then.

    Also, it looks devilish, and your forcing of religious imagery into my eyeballs is offensive to me as a person, and as a piece of furniture. I dont' know why. But whatever bollocks Ong comes up with in the next 30 minutes goes ditto for me.

    It's so different to American TV. They openly swear. They rather viciously mock each other, and throw jokes around that would get them lambasted over here.
    E.g. openly making gay jokes to the gay guy, or openly making Nazi jokes to the German guy.
    That kind of thing would have half the USA hollering bigot and racism.

    Jimmy Carr is kind of a dick to everyone else, but when they play back at him, he is a good sport, so ... meh. It reminds me of my closest friends giving each other a bit of shit in good fun.
    Except that they make it pretty clear that they're not friends with him, which rubs me a bit the wrong way, but not grumbling about it, just noting.

    Also: I know it's a comedy show and they're doing caricatures, so grain of salt, but damn... their impressions of Americans is amusing.
    E.g. One guy puts on a cowboy hat and starts talking in a mock Texas accent, and simply refers to himself as "the kid" and speaks about himself in the 3rd person making veiled demands for the rest of the episode. "The kid wants a vowel..."

    I'm not taking it as anything aside from amusing.

    It's interesting that whenever a Brit does an impression of an American accent, they always go to the southwestern cowboy, "Howdy, Pardner" style.
    I wonder if there's a similar thing in return. Like, do Americans faking a British accent tend to pick a dialect or accent from, say, London?
    It's a comedy show (8/10 cats) that as like a one off joke thing they did on channel 4 "comedy people do popular game shows" and it happened to be so popular that they carried on doing it.

    Sean lock is fantastic but it's actually a pretty terrible game in that basically every joke they could do about the game is finished in 3 episodes and it's just people repeating them.

    The sketch you're talking about isn't even someone doing an impression of an american though it's very specifically of a cowboy because he's doing it based off the different hats he wears. I'm not sure how you can miss that considering it's the whole fucking point of the joke why do you think he kept changing hats?
  28. #25603
    That being said I find it funny that there has recently been a bit of fuss about Friends not being that PC and how that's left people in an utter state of bafflement because friends nostalgia and racism have some sort of ultimate battle on the whole spectrum of a 13 year olds mind that grew up in the 2000s.

    I just want to tell them all how horrible that is before suggesting their nans favourite carry on film.

    Can people who have used drugs before, especially those who are of adult age and have parents that have either done drugs with them or you have convinced to do drugs with them please come onto the discord channel and speak to me please. I kind of want to try something out (results of which I would post on ftr if interesting) but I need to shoot the shit with some drug users first really. It's to do with taking drugs with my family who are fairly non-drug user in the first place, one of which is anti-drug the other not so much but implies he rarely has (which may or may not be true).

    https://discord.gg/qeuRKJ

    Is the copy, I may ask spoon to make a channel so it's slightly more restricted (i.e. not randoms, people i know on here I welcome) I just need to cover my back a bit).

    I wasn't really paying attention / just had it on while I was doing other things, so I probably missed loads of stuff.
    The general point I was making wasn't predicated solely on that sketch.

    I guess the reason it's so odd to me is that Hollywood uses the same Midwest accent in almost all films and TV shows, so I'd think that the most common American accent anyone would be familiar with is the Midwest one.

    Police say they placed Shannen Martin in the back of a police cruiser where they say she intentionally defecated in her pants then hid a crack pipe, 2.3 grams of crack cocaine and a Valentine's Day card in her excrement.
    I am morbidly curious as to what kind of winner out there gives a v-day card to a crack whore.
  35. #25610
    cmon, use your imagination. Crack whores will do anything, and I mean anything, for crack. She's gonna be an expert at licking dick, even if her face does look like it's been attacked with a cheese grater.

    Will crack whores do anything for v-day cards? If you have crack, will her opinion of you be swayed by whether or not you give her a v-day card? If you don't have crack, will a v-day card get your dick licked?

    Remove the crack addiction and add some make-up she might actually be a catch.

    Looking at something only proves it to you. Show me a peer reviewed article that has nice graphs and stuff showing brain activity when looking at optical illusions. I want expert opinions from renowned psychologists and neurobiologists.

    Wrt the very limited set of aspects of intelligence measured by iq tests, supposedly, but we don't know for sure. Assuming that variations in those skills are linear, yes.

    Don't worry, people with 85 IQ typically still do just fine.
    Our brains have just one scale, and we resize our experiences to fit.

  47. #25622
    Of course not, otherwise someone with a 200+ IQ is as smart as a puddle of water is stupid.

    IQ measures variations between people in IQ tests, not intelligence, so yeah obviously it breaks down at the extremes. Still, a score of 85 is roughly 1 standard deviation from the mean as is 115, so in that sense they're the "same".

    Holy shit! I looked up "cromulent" just for fun. Turns out people actually use it like it's a real word!!

    https://www.merriam-webster.com/word...cromulent-mean

    cromulent showed up in campus op-eds ("The words were struck down as 'too hard,' although both are perfectly cromulent." Patrick Friel, University Wire, 10 Feb. 1999), reviews of movies ("This film enraged sci-fi geeks because it has almost nothing to do with the Asimov book it stole its title from. But this I, Robot is a perfectly cromulent bastardization..." John Scalzi, PlayStation Magazine, 1 Jan. 2005), and even in the name of a theater company. Cromulent has crept so deep into the language that it has even shows up as a hypothetical example in a Supreme Court amicus brief.

    That one is actually in the dictionary. Though there was a little tag next to it that says "north america", so maybe you don't use it in pansy-ball country.

    But at least in that case you can see how it was a word that was needed, has a practical function, and its root is a word that already exists.

    Without that word you'd have to say "Don Shula has accrued the most wins as a coach in NFL History." There is utility in being able to shorten that to "Don is the winningest coach in NFL History".

    That's all fine. "winningest" came about organically the same way all words enter into our language. It played by the rules.

    Cromulent, however, is another story completely.
  60. #25635
    Don is the best coach in NFL history.

    If you want to be formal about it, well we'd say "most successful", but "best" is just fine, and certainly preferable to "winningest". It's a silly word.

    No. Because Don is not the best coach in NFL history. "Best" does not mean "winningest", which is why they are two separate words.

    Bill Belichick is the "best" coach in NFL history.

    Yeah but as soon as you say that, you get accused of talking out your arse because Don is the most successful, so he's the best. If you disagree with that, you're just giving me your opinion, which is not supported by the facts.

    Who's the most winningest manager?

    Dave, who has won two European Champions League titles, four national league championships, four national cups, and a World Cup runners up,
    or Steve, who manages the Dog and Duck, the only team in the pub league who pull in triple figure crowds, who have won the title every year for ten years, and won nine shitty cups along the way?

    Steve has won more, he's the winningest, right? He's has won more things.

    I guess by we you mean you.
    Our brains have just one scale, and we resize our experiences to fit.

    Beat me to it.

    I was thinking of coining a term 'reductio ad bananum' to mean 'when you argue against something the other person didn't say.'

    I read an article just the other day arguing that neocons (of which Fox has/had a great deal of) have caused some real problems with North Korea. I don't know enough to know what I agree with, but it is the case that neocons think that when Democrats negotiate they screw up yet IF Republicans negotiate then they'll do so well. Of course, the "IF" should be noted since neocons' default is not negotiate themselves either.

    They might be right. I don't know.

    It's a good point.

    Trump flayed the Republican Party and is wearing its skin as clothing.

    Also base conservatives never were exactly the biggest Fox fans. Even ones that like and watch Fox hold some very different opinions about some stuff.

    It was one thing when NK was just a rogue regime acting like ass holes.

    Now, ten years later they've gotten to the point where they are either going to be a nuclear power, or they aren't. Obama, and his SoS Clinton, had a policy of 'strategic patience' that kicked the can down the road to this point.

    Negotiating when NK was over a decade away from nukes, while declaring a strategy of "strategic patience", while NK was acting like such ass holes, without preconditions to stop acting like ass holes, at least a little bit....seems like bad diplomacy.

    Negotiating with NK when they are on the cusp of being a terrible superpower and the can can't be kicked down the road anymore is.....well at best it's courageous, at worst it's 'what has to be done'.

    Obama had better options. We didn't have to get to this point.
