Sorry to hear of your daughter’s impending doom
To the Brits bitching about American English, keep in mind that it was the Brits that changed their language, not the Americans.

I watched the whole thing live and I have to say it fell flat. I figured Ken Ham would be unable to make a coherent argument, and he didn’t disappoint. Nye did make a good argument, but not a terribly persuasive one. You could tell Nye was a little out of his element (I’m an engineer, not a politician Jim!). The highlight of the whole thing came from a audience questionnaire card. It asked Ken Ham what, if anything, would ever change his mind. Ham nervously tried to dance around the question and then in a round-about way admitted that nothing would ever change his mind. And therein lies the biggest problem with debating someone like Ham. The only way you can remedy a person so closed minded is to pop their skull like a soda can. This goes for atheists as well as theists. If you aren’t willing to entertain other possibilities, then you aren’t worth my time, consideration, or humanity.
You forgot to add “thumb down another shitty Buzzfeed video”
What? How can you not have the Outpost.com commercials from the ‘98 Superbowl? Seriously, look them up.
Why would a commercial for a French audience be half in English?
You do understand that this is not real, right?
I get what you are saying. I’m basically a liberal, and I was pissed at liberals for saying little when Obama signed the NDAA. But… The suggestion that Bush only had 500 deaths under his belt conveniently ignores the 3700 friendlies, and 100,000 Iraqis that died in Iraq (most of which were civilians). Not to mention the tens of thousands of Afghan civilians that died previous to 2009. Plus you neglect to mention that the only reason we are in Afghanistan at all was a Bush decision. Obama is basically fighting his way out of Bush’s war. As far as al-Awlaki goes, this is really not much different than Benedict Arnold joining the British during the American Revolution. Although I am concerned that there is no trial (in absentia at least). And Guantanamo is less a problem then the fact that you can be “disappeared” into Guantanamo without trial (now official thanks to the NDAA). There were other scary things about Bush that rarely get a mention such as “free speech zones”. I mean, come’on, how Orwellian can you get than a “free speech zone”.
Fuck you all under 30 (or so). None of you (guys or girls) get to bask in words like “geek” or “nerd”. By the time you were old enough for it to matter, being a geek was no longer socially stigmatizing, and these terms really have little meaning anymore. By the early to mid 90s being an outcast was cool. Previous to that time, you could have the crap kicked out of you just for possessing a D&D book, punk rock music, or a breadboard (just go look it up). Now don’t get me wrong, I am happy that you can enjoy a comic book without being assaulted now. But at the same time, it is grating to listen to the current generation talk about it like it is some kind of a burden.
Ugh! I can’t be the only one who is sick to death of 90s nostalgia posts. You are an adult now and you miss the stuff from when you were a kid, we get it. I remember back when I was young, our nostalgia wasn’t nearly as obnoxious. harhar
Oh, hell no! Don’t blame this shit on the 80s. These are all the 90s kids doing this (despite the occasional 80s leftover toys).
Persecution complex much jacit? ;) Nobody said conservatives were “wrong”. Personally, I don’t even disagree with every conservative stance. I said that they aren’t funny, and their arguments don’t hold up to scrutiny (which is slightly different than being wrong). But on the other hand, you are wrong, when you said,”The idea anyone can say that someones opinion is wrong is completely ridiculous.” Opinions are often wrong. What about the opinion that murder is fun, and everyone should partake? People like to pretend that opinions can’t be wrong so that they never have to seriously consider whether their opinions are the ones that might be wrong.
You know what the problem with conservatives on the Internet is? They’re just not funny. This post is a prime example. Massive…painful…fail. Moreover, they spend so much time in the Fox News echo chamber that their arguments don’t hold up to scrutiny in the free market of ideas (also known as the Internet). Is it any wonder that conservatives have such a persecution complex on the internet?
