The 'he's not a scientist' argument is gibberish. His degree is Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. No, he doesn't write papers for peer review, but that is not the only type of science out there. Applied science is also science.

She's not cut out for it. At least not at this stage in her... Career? I've never heard of her. Is this something she does for a living?

I mean, everyone sucked at the things they got good at, once upon a time. Who knows...

The book had little effect on me as a child. The movie... Well.

Peck was an American icon, and he brought the story to life. Ban the book, keep making them watch the movie the way I did 25 years ago. It's a better delivery system of the message, if only in this case.

Claiming that there is no other life in the universe is like taking a glassful of water out of the ocean and claiming that fish don't exist because you didn't catch one in it.

Unfortunately... We can really only see what's in the glass right now. That's not about to change.

"This town ain't big enough for the two of us." The sheriff said, hand over his six shooter.

Of course technically it was. The ability to hold at least two people was the absolute minimum number required to even qualify as a town. Even then, that was pushing the bounds of the definition. Not to mention that several dozen people lived in the town already, and the addition of one more person would have had a relatively insignificant impact on the resources and infrastructure.

Frankly the sheriff was talking out of his ass.

spanz Hey, why don't you spend your entire life learning a skill. Spend four years in college with a schedule twice as packed as any regular student, unable to accept so much as a sandwich for free or risk losing your amature status and your scholarship. Pass up a chance to go pro to finish your degree the way Kapernick did...

Then tell me how the money you've earned after a lifetime of work means you don't get to stand up for your beliefs.

I've said it before, I'll say it again.

He's been a joke my entire 40+ years on this planet. He's been a punchline. He's been a failure. He's a god damned slumlord that made his money evicting real people from their homes to make giant phallic monuments to himself.

Respect him fucking why? Explain that to me. Fucking why?

I'm not a republican, but you deserve better than this. I would rather see our rights shredded by Pence, a man who at least believes what he says, than continue down this path of lies and ego that Trump has led us all down. I would rather suffer under an honest bigot than a dishonest narcissist. At least I'd know that the people got what they voted for, even if it's not what I personally would have preferred.

Sorry to hear that he's dead. Sincerely.

Never liked his material. Yelling a bunch of racist and obscene things that make drunk people laugh is easy mode for comedy. He had no real insight. No unique take on the issues. He just yelled a lot. He acted like Kinison, without Sam's attention to detail. He gained fame on a reality show that celebrated hacks and edited the laughs out of better comic's sets to look like they were bombing. He broke no ground except the ground he walked on.

Yes that was a fat joke, and I'm not a thin man. I'm good with that. Comedy.

RiP just the same. I'd rather he sucked for another 40 years than hear of his passing.

Awesome show. He and Bonnie Raitt shared the stage for at least half of it.

RiP Stevie.
profworm wrote:
daegog Okay, so I had read previously that the guitar wasn't caught and damaged. This happened, but not at this performance. The internet is awful about mixing events up like this, and I fell for it.

But he still walked off like a douche, while everyone else stayed on for the crowd. I still really believe his arrogance tainted his legacy.

Prince ruined this for me. The guitar he threw was loaned to him and damaged when he threw it. He could have owned this performance with grace and dignity. Instead he walked off like an arrogant twat.

Prince was great, but he bought into his own hype far too much.

kalron27 The station we listen to at work always credits Wilbury songs to him and him alone. I've always resented them for that. Don't gloss over one of the most amazing super groups in history.

Then again, they play 'Lets Go Crazy' by Prince... And they cut out the sermon at the start and the solo at the end. So clearly they are evil.

Honestly I hope he just fades out of view from now on. Might be best for everyone.

But we'll always have Nordberg...

They're discussing swatches while we are tallying a mass extinction event.

We're doomed. You know that, right? The planet doesn't need us. We need it.

Great video. We have so many people in positions of leadership who got there by dividing us, it's nice to hear someone of authority stand up for common decency. If anyone can't handle that, then get out.

Can we all agree that the cabinet of the president needs a 'Head of Not Making Simple IT Mistakes' appointment?
