Again: anyone who wears Beats headphones is not credible as a musician.

1. It’s Luc Besson, so it’s bound to be a extreme exercise is shallow deepitude (working very hard to appear deep while being at the same time as superficial as Paris Hilton). 2. That whole 10% of the brain thing is a load of bull, and pretty anyone who has spent any time reading books other than those penned by Deepak Chopra (see point 1 above) knows it. I have no interest in seeing this. This is the guy who committed “The Fifth Element”, probably the worst Sci-Fi movie of all time (again, see point 1), after all.
Just so everyone understands: This isn’t in Canada, per se, it’s in Calgary. Calgary is much closer to Dallas than Toronto, culturally. They have cowboys and oil-funded evangelical nutjobs just like Texas does, and they are as detested by other Canadians (generally speaking) as Texans are by Americans on the whole.
#1: Bigger problem is that he’s using Beats headphones.
You forgot: “learning that anything that is in any way different must be hated and is going to go to hell.”
Just another bunch of douchbags.
Sex and the City, a classic? Nothing but an all-female, less interesting version of Seinfeld…
I knew about all of these. Who doesn’t know that potatoes are not Irish????
Most of these are American. Now I do realize that Americans think that they are the only people in the world (the rest are just for show, right?), but still. The title should really be a little less than 33 reasons America is doomed.
Pretty large load of BS. America certainly played a part, but ultimately it’s the USSR that really defeated the Germans. The US came into the war after the UK and the USSR had managed to stop the German advance, and right after the USSR had started to gain the upper hand. So just like they did in WWI, the Americans were johnnies-come-lately who arrived just in time to take the whole credit for what a whole lot of countries, including the US, did as a group. Not to forget that at the beginning of the war, most Americans wanted nothing to do with it, and a significant number of them were openly pro-Nazi (including a large number of prominent industrialists and financiers, fancy that)
Ask an American who the Prime Minister is, and you’ll get blank stares. And Idaho??? How well do you think Americans would do on trying to name UK counties? Or asking them to name even a single one of the Barons who got the King to sign the Magna Carta (or even what the Magna Carta is, let alone which king it was that signed it)?
Having to be rescued from an CNBC addiction: you’ll need some powerful drugs to counteract that degree of brainwashing.
If you believe Dion was 20 when she first boinked her very much middle age sugar daddy, you’re a moron.
Not back to work. Back to “work”, since he doesn’t actually do anything but embarass the entire city. And he’ll be back at Biermarkt making a fool of himself and everyone else in the city in no time.
Well, considering how boring season 3 was, maybe that will give them the time to write a good show. Season 3 was a massive letdown.
Certainly more useful a life lesson than the Bible teaches.
Someone screaming “The sky is green” at the top of their lungs would be closer to being sane than this moron. Let’s recap: ISIS is active in Syria, on the side of the insurgents, which the neocons wanted to SUPPORT. Let’s be clear: if the west had intervened in Syria, they would have been fighting ALONGSIDE ISIS, not against it. And just as did in Iraq, the west would have ended up arming and funding ISIS.
Nothing but an infomercial. What next, the virtues of KKKChicken?
what joke? A joke is something funny, not this mehitude.
Infomercial. Very low.
People who write dumb listicles.
That’s what Cinco de Mayo is for the vast majority of Americans. Just like Saint Patrick’s day is all about green beer, Cinco is all about tequila and margaritas. It’s not MSNBC that’s racist, it’s America.
All diets are fad diets. When “research” is quoted, it’s usually very low quality, non blinded studies that are often nothing more than collections of anecdotes, quite often published in “pay to play” “journals”. There has never been, not will there ever be, a single phrase (“what our ancestors ate”, “no gluten”, “no meat”) that will stick. It’s the old search for a panacea, and it’s always failed.
It’s called being mentally ill. But then again, it’s not politically correct to call religious fanatics crazy is it? (Well, unless they are muslim, and then you can call them whatever you want, right?)
Uh, no? Why waste so many column inches for such a simple question? I know all the rationalizations that astrology fans use to dismiss the fact that there’s no a shred of evidence supporting their views. But ultimately, just wanting to believe something is not enough to make it true. You have to be willing to put your beliefs to the test, and to change your mind if your beliefs come up short. I was quite a strong believer in astrology up until about 15 years ago. I studied and practiced it myself. But I finally realized that my belief rested entirely on a very selective definition of evidence: anything that supported my belief was considered evidence, and anything that didn’t I simply ignored or dismissed as ideologically motivated, just like all believers in the paranormal. The simple fact is that reality is stubborn: it doesn’t care what you believe, it will continue to behave the same way. So many people have tried to show in controlled conditions that astrology works, and every single one of them has failed. Reality has spoken: astrology is bunk.
Without looking at anything but the text, it’s obvious that we’re talking homemaker here….
Some of this stuff is ridiculous (such as all the vinyl stuff; and tube amps for recodings? Tube amps colour the sound in very specific ways, which is why musicians like them for their instruments; it’s the exact opposite of what you want in a PA or audio amp). But some of this stuff is just about actually liking music, as opposed to just liking to have nondescript background “noise”. As for music journalists, anyone who actually loves music hates them with the fire of a thousand suns. They are a step below tech journalists and a step above political pundits in the scale of despicableness.
Would they apologize if someone put a cross on?
People are waking up to these so-called universities, I guess. There’s little difference between the University of Phoenix and Latin American diploma mills, except diploma mills don’t make you work for the worthless diploma they give you. “For Profit” colleges keep up the charade all the way to that time when a potential employer looks at your resume, sees “University of Phoenix”, and starts laughing.
What a load of bullsh*t… Sure, games are not time spend in a browser. But look at what makes up most of the “app” time other than games: Facebook, which IS dying a slow death. The mobile web is where “everything else” is. Anything and everything that you may need. Certainly anything that I don’t use every single day or even every single week. And frankly, the idea that I would have to download an app for everything is nuts.
Most of these you should never wear, period. Fedoras are fine if you’re above 40, balding, and you need protection from the Sun and/or cold (like me) but look ridiculous on most hipster twentysomethings who think it’s cool.
So it’s like Comic-Con, but without the cool factor?
So the argument is “why don’t you boycott Iranian products?” What Iranian products? Why don’t you boycott Saudi products? If there was some to buy, maybe I would. But essentially the argument is: Israel is no worse than Iran, no worse than Saudi Arabia, no worse than Russia, no worse than China. And isn’t that the problem? Isn’t it reasonable to expect that a so-called democracy act better than Islamic theocracies and totalitarian states?
100% dumb commercial, evidence free. How much were you paid to publish this crap as if it was factual?
Here’s the real scoop: MagicJack is a dud. No one wants it, no one needs it. So how exactly is this company going to soar?
Great role models… like Hitler. Let’s not push that one too far; most vegetarians in history weren’t very nice people, and most were certainly less than rational (like Hitler, as stated above, but also ultra-puritans like Kellogg).
reality is, the right wing is essentially racist. If the shoe fits… There’s a reason why the Right went bonkers over Obama’s birth certificate. Tons of people have had questions raised about their eligibility for the Presidency, including John McCain, who was actually born outside the U.S., but no one has been the target of as much bile as Obama on this issue, even after he proved time and time again that he was a natural-born citizen. The only reason his citizenship was ever in question is because of his race. It’s the Right that gave us fake “Welfare Queens”, let’s not forget. It’s the Right that creates waves of panic over “Black Panthers” during every election. It’s the right that attempted to blame Trayvon Martin, a victim of violence, and portray him as the perpetrator JUST BECAUSE HE WAS A BLACK KID IN A HOODIE. So sorry, dudes; the Right is racist, plain and simple, and it proves it every single day.
If reporting about Media is essentially reporting about Tech, then media reporting is dead… because there’s little in the way of good Tech journalism to be found. The vast majority of journalists don’t have a clue about tech, but that doesn’t stop them from pontificating. The only thing more clueless than a Tech “journalist” is a political one.
The same thing happened in Montreal in 1976 (albeit at a smaller scale), where the Mafia pretty much controlled the entire construction of the Olympic site. That added to incredibly dumb engineering (the French — from France — engineer that designed the stadium didn’t realize that snow had an actual weight) has created a burden that Quebecers are still bearing today in higher taxes. It ultimately destroyed the legacy of the Putin-like mayor of Montreal, Jean Drapeau. I suspect that Sochi will be remembered in the end as the one thing that destroyed Putin.
Death panels do exist… within every single health insurance company. Every Health Insurance company has a group of people whose role it is to find ways to deny coverage, before or after the intervention. This is contrast to the IPAB, whose mandate is to reduce health care costs overall by preventing health issues, or by reducing the number of useless interventions and tests that are designed only to inflate patients’ medical bills or to shield hospitals and practitioners from lawsuits. It’s pretty clear which one deserves the moniker “Death Panel”.
