Pretty sure this is going to be the worst thread ever, but let's see
ruined by having the worst frontman and lyricist known to mankind
I do wish he'd bloody well tone it down an awful lot of the time.
to open this thread and find that the opening reply is almost word for word what I was about to write
Are we talking Horrors skinny or kind of 'fitting skinny' because that's... well, a bit strange.
they're really poncey. lads who wear them need to grow a pair of balls.
they're fine on girls, though.
I wear them like a second skin. I have skinny legs though and I'm not overweight so I don't have a man-muffin-top.
I just knew I guy that was and he looked horrible. Also don't worry, I'm sure you look lovely.
hating the us military/soldiers in general
extreme left political viewpoints
making sweeping generalisations about the british working-class/christians/jews/americans (an "edgy" sort of bigotry it's cool to flaunt)
sloth-paced experimental cinema lacking any kind of narrative, thematic or emotional development
music which is actually just droning noise
just some of them.
staying away from meat products whilst still eating the products of the industrial meat farming system
ethical vegetarians are pretty much the stupidest people alive
Vegans get a lot more piss taken out of them, but at least their argument is sound and they go (very far) out of their way to stick to it. People that shudder at the thought of buying non-free range eggs annoy me, as they almost certainly don't give a shit about any item they buy with eggs as an ingredient in it or restaurant items, 99% of which will be battery as fuck.
Yeah, I really HATE people who make one decision in a certain context and a different one at other times. It's barely a step removed from Louise 'lol protestors drink Starbucks coffee and own telephones!' Mensch logic.
It's nice to see someone who's all holier-than-thou with their opinions fail like everyone else.
Not sure that being self-righteous about an inevitably flawed ethical approach is any better or worse than standing to the side and sneering about it, in the scale of things.
But I should not have allowed myself to be drawn into this. I'm gonna go eat a steak.
Never since my teens have I met anyone like that. Meat eaters who attack vegetarians for their diet on the other hand...
I've met far more self-righteous meat-eaters who have a go at veggies than the other way around.
Fascism: you're doing it wrong.
Come on, you're pulling my leg. Surely?
Then it doesnt matter if you dont eat meat or not. I dont care if youre vegetarian - it means nothing.
Keep it up with the thundering generalisations lads, never know who you might insult next
I'm already looking forward to it
but then I realised I was an idiot, vegetarians may not completely eliminate the harm they cause animals but they reduce it massively, surely thats better its not all or nothing, and few other areas do people demand people are 100% morally consistent because it isnt ever posssible people can only do what they can and not going all the way doesnt undermine anything. If some one says they are against sweatsops and try to buy ethically but admit that they own somethings they cant vouch for should they have take back that opinion, if that is the way the world works where people could only speak out against something if they are 100% removed from it then no progress would ever have been made in society. What harm are vegetarians doing by not being vegans, does calling them hypocrits serve any useful purpose?
other ethical concerns around meat like being a big driver of global warming, pushing up food and water costs for developing countries, reducing the life span of life saving antibiotics, toxic levels of waste produced, being totally unsustainable if the rest of the world were to take on our diet etc. these things problems could all be solved if more people were vegetarian
then still decide to go out and have a pint, despite knowing that the cost of that pint could feed 10 starving people for a day in other countries
Yeah, 'cause I bet the fabric on your bike seat was ethically produced.
I've had enough vegetarians frothing at the mouth telling me I'm a prick, its just an opinion.
Surely people are comfortable with their own choices and moral boundaries that the opinion of a worthless nobody doesn't anger them, right?
So far that is exactly what the veggie posters on here have been doing, without resorting to calling anybody anything.
like i said, they were just suggestions. i'm not interested in attacking anything in this thread beyond the harmless pop culture stuff. don't talk politics or throw stones, etc.
boring, most of the other teams are made up of boring cunts with saggy skin. And if I wanted to identify celebrities from a range of pictures and listen to clips of really shit 70s music I would be less of a man than I am.
don't get the hype.
they're just a bit of a case of the emporors new clothes really. arn't they?
playing actual songs.
The Doors, Led Zeppelin, Dinosaur Junior, Black Flag, Bad Brains, Velvet Underground and many many many other acts though.
Good day to you sir.
<doffs fancy hat>
<cycles off into the sunset on pennyfarthing>
And the doors were massively over-rated, had two good songs, one good idea, an actually ugly frontman whose depth and mystery was little more than reappropriated junky vagueness, their legend is beyond my understanding given I've listened to the same music the doors believers have heard and seen the same footage and read the same articles.
or just general grammatical inaccuracy from people who know better?
The term "snatch" to describe the feminine flower does.
You're still reducing a woman to her genitalia but you're trying to be gentle about it. Just call it vagina and move on.
Gentle euphemisms are still far less offensive than coarse ones, all the same.
though that may be because I have absolutely no idea what you're on about.
Have completely forgotten that one. Though I suppose it would be impossible to keep everything from that particularly choice selection in my memory.
actually, no it isn't. it's all downhill after "i was trying...in some way...to stop...the war"
fuck it, whole thing's ruddy marvellous
You always get people on here who put a little zany made up insult at the end of their posts and its usually always a compound of "cock" and something else. Like 'cock witch" and "bellsniff" and all that.
Then there's always a post underneath which is like ":D 'bellsniff' lol, thats a great one"
Its really childish.
that's brilliant :D
but the term "bell/cocksniff" really does make me feel sick.
It's just two colleagues waving. Who cares?
waste of your time and mine
Mostly because I never fail to get caught out and it's really, really irksome.
most unpleasant drink known to man. drink tea fgs.
Tea drinkers are so much pleasanter and less highly strung, too.
pretty sure i'm not meant to.
you it is meant to be served well mashed in a robust mug, black, no sugar.
with darjeeling it must be served less well mashed and no milk no sugar, served in bone china cup
If you come round mine, anyway....my gaff my rules.
I like many many other teas, too, especially gunpowder tea.
However when it comes to the wierd blends, then I find that earl grey is too overpoweringly scented, 'lady grey' is far better.
mashed = brewed (just another word for it)
I guess its for my own good, I'm learning fast!
You learn that shit in primary school. Same with their, they're, there.
don't be a dick steve
unless we’re talking a really decent Earl Grey, stop fannying about, a good squeeze will do it.
srsly that's a fucking stupid post to make
they should just accept that middle class, old white men will always get to rule, be rich and have freedom whilst they have none of these things. I mean, they should just be used to it by now if nothing else, ffs.
you are by far the stupidest person to use this site, maybe ever.
since he's recently started posting pretty offensive/offensively stupid stuff. Explaining in rational terms why he's wrong doesn't get through to him. I'm hoping maybe I can just wear him down this way
he's needy. what's your issue?
and it "gets people's attention" but that doesn't mean it "forces them to think beyond the prescriptive discourse of laissez-faire liberalism and see the inherently exploitative and destructive nature of the existing social structure" it just means that people get worried about negative equity
an argument which is presented to give the appearance that the majority have an ability to influence through consumer power, which theoretically that do (like chimps typing the complete works of shakespeare)....but practically they do not, because that which is sold is based upon that which drives humans, and often at its most bass and inescapable is one of price and peer pressure (although in the case of some consumables it can actually be chemical drives- sugars, caffeine, alcahol, nicotine)
Human populations are driven by human animal behaviour, and this is toned and guided by marketing.
Most humans are sublimely unaware of the ammount of artificial persuasion and conditioningthat is bearing on their decisions to purchase stuff.
To try to co-ordinate people to affect things significantly (rather than subtle changes to the market) is virtually impossible....people do not reach decisions at the same time...unless there is a signigicant overarching crisis.
Human individuals cannot make a difference this way, only large numbers, and that is dependant upon publicity etc from the media....if something significant does occur from a population, the market does not suffer particularly as it will adapt, therefore there is little incentive to the selling market to actually be pre-emptively ethical or moral, or to try to guide the market away from harmful yet profitable areas.
obviously the big change that will occur is as most people become unable to pay for stuff that they could in the past, this will obviouly affect the market hugely, but it will not be through deliberate consumer action, more and inevitable change of consumer behaviour
'not caring about politics' with 'not caring about 2-party neo-capitalist politics'. Cos your posts DO show a level of caring, if only in terms of wanting to rip it up and start again. That's caring about politics alright, it's just not caring much about the current political system x
If that's not worth fighting against, I don't know what is.
but way more than i get the tea one
remember the good old days when everyone in america was american and everyone was happy and carefree and we didn't need 'politics' because we had THE AMERICAN DREAM, before blacks and gays started being all divisive and whining about 'rights' and 'oppression' and shit
(I don't, that joke is the best thing about DiS)
would you be really distressed if you found out, sort of like someone who's had a kid with an undercover policeman
and expensive for what it is.
and even then the difference is questionable.
Or are you just special?
This has been fun.
I knew it also and yet the urge to light the blue touchpaper was too, too compelling
Mind you, not a bad way to find out how everyone's bread is buttered
Someone'll start a thread about gender in a couple of days and this will seem like NOTHING in comparison.
If we do it anal does that make me gay?
Am I a sexist now? (470 posts)
I laughed when a man fell into the river the other day*. Does that reaffirm the already obvious fact that all feminists are misandrists?
*Seriously, it was the best thing ever.
Do I publish it? (120 posts, multiple bannings, 4-day server outage)
Not that I have any idea who she is or any desire to.
She's in some video dancing and the budding cocksmen of DiS marked her en masse as Most Wanted at some point in 2010, it was all very lurid
there are much better things to do with your time than listen to albums
smell of poo.
and it appears that dissers like suit and ties.
so I will attack suits and ties.
before curling up into the foetal position and weeping for half an hour isn't as good as having rampant, all-night sex with a bangin' cutie.
Plagiarizes greats such as Michael McIntyre and Russell Howard. Poorly.
Trolls, by referring to Michael McIntyre and Russell Howard as 'greats'. Poorly.
I'm not 15. I don't want to drink piss in a glass.
and I do want to do that
did feel a bit unnecessary.
thought it as boring as many (if not all) police programs to be.
i tried to use the usual critics choice comments about it's depth and density of story and structured over the seasons to show a macro view of political corruption and criminality YADDAYADDAYADDA.
in the final two seasons. they clearly made an attempt to create a kind of poetic street patois which was only a natural fit for omar and prop joe.
and season 5 was absolute turd.
just some dick making his life difficult for everyone by being a dick. It's 'Some mother's would ave em' for indie bellends.
Similarly: Seinfeld. Not that funny. It's just Friends for misanthropes.
it is how i feel about both of those programs.
i watched a lot of both on recommendations from people here and just don't get the humour. unlikable characters across the board, sub farce storylines, filled with little but snark and shouting. CBA with it Joe, CBFA.
is called out as being either flawed (if only slightly) or daft. then trying to hide their stuffy, humourless little gittishness behind a facade or irony or sarcasm (resident board manic depressive DaddyorChips is the best example).
btw, who is DaddyOrChips? Did he/she/it have a past account?
galacticstar3ruption was the resident manic depressive. i think but can't prove it is the same person. their posting styles are quite similar ("woe r me" threads + TYPING IN CAPITAL LETTERS WHEN THEY GET INVOLVED IN SRS BUSINESS DEBATES BUT DON'T HAVE A DECENT ARGUMENT).
I thought I was Galacticstar3ruption?
have a go at either if you want to.
i'm off home. WHEY!
I mean what's the point in getting on someone's back for liking something...I mean surely you just realise that it's YOU who's losing out on the...hang on..
sorry, wait...something's just blown through the window...It's a cold day too...not sure why it was open, anyway...looks like a golden scroll or something..Gonna unfurl it and get back to what I was talking about here, 'cos it was an important point...anyways, here goes..
Future [unscrolls] of the left [unscrolls] are [unscrolls] a bit silly [unscrolls] and for [unscrolls] wallies.
