Started laughing in public and got some crazy looks, but fuck it, having a public ad telling me "Put On A Fake Dick" brings me so much joy.
I'm not sure if this is the right forum to put this in (move it if it is not), but after watching the trackmania 2 TNT, I found that the 'buzzing' noise that has been prevalent in their videos lately is getting worse, to the point of it being a major annoyance. Whenever they talk or some sort of noise is produced by the game, a loud sort of vibrating buzz noise occurs. Any idea if there are plans to filter this out in future videos or fix whatever sound hardware is causing this problem?
"studio management treated the letter as more an object of derision and mockery, rather than any sort of wake-up call to how their own employees might be feeling."
This sounds Australian as fuuuuuck. We have are own unique way of not facing up to the facts. I imagine meetings over these accusations went thusly: "fuck mate look at these pooncy fuckin cunts trying to weasle out of doing that fuckin job, these slack cunts. Can't fuckin handle it. Now I'm gonna knock off early and complain about my Asian neighbours to the local council while the employees below me work 50 more hours a week then me! Such slack cunts"
Yeah... I don't know why but that original quote conjured up some really lucid specific memories of some Aussie assholes I've known.
Even though I'd say I'm left leaning, I really hate this online test as at the end of it its like "Hey if you're a libertarian and left leaning, you're similar to Gandhi and Mother Teresa" and the only people who fall into the other 3 sections are like Hitler or Stalin or Pol Pot and the like, so it feels hugely biased to me...
*cough* so uh... I always feel woefully underprepared for these sorts of arguments, but anywho here it goes:
I have never understood why people aren't completely indifferent on this topic (unless they're religious beliefs make them believe homosexuality is a sin), as how does a gay couple getting married impact one's own marriage in ANY way? A lot of the arguments I see seem to center around heavily definitional arguments or a believe that a marriage with no possibility of producing children should be allowed to take place. Why do you care if two people can have children or not? The more broad reaching demographic implications of lowered birthrates has already been going on for quite some time in the developed world, and if governments see this as a major problem, banning gay marriage isn't going to be the solution. Broader sociological, and commonly ignored financial pressures GREATLY outweigh the "negative," if any, impact gay marriage would have on current trends in birth rates.
Also, if it makes someone happy, doesn't negatively affect anyone else, what's the problem?
