I would call this post stupid, but that would be offensive to stupid people.

Yeota, I still don't get why you went up to the Asian girls in the first place. If you have issues with their race, just avoid them.

1- words do hurt. You can't just act like people don't have feelings.

2- look at the dialog we're having here. We pointed out to dude that he was being offensive, he doesn't understand why- maybe he learns a bit. Maybe that means the world's just a slightly less terrible place because one guy got it. I don't think it's crazy to suggest that we all benefit from being in a society where less people hate each other.

Because clearly I hate Asians. Hate em.


You know what else I hate? When somebody asks me to help them lift something because I look strong. Like, who do they think they are?

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Holiday Discussion

To me, it's always a good idea to always carry two sacks of something when you walk around. That way, if anybody says, "Hey, can you give me a hand?" you can say, "Sorry, got these sacks."

Schu, just mask it as pre-gaming for the Creighton/Nebraska showdown. You don't have a problem.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Holiday Discussion

So, this thread is AIDS. It is usually the Magic Johnson "cured with vitamins and healthy eating" AIDS and occasionally ventures into Freddie Mercury "you die from it" AIDS, but it's always AIDS. The key is that it's entertaining AIDS, and while some might consider that an oxymoron I prefer to think of it as SE FAQ.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Holiday Discussion

This is my story, "The Dids Who Ranted at the End of the World." I was just fooling around and trying to have fun (and pull off all-caps dialogue) while I had writer's block. At 1,500+ words, it's long in comparison to even the longer non-Mi.crob.ob forum posts, so don't start it if you're busy or whatever.

And, btw, I like both of the posters who are the main characters. The negative portrayal is a satirized form of haters' hate. I hope at least one person enjoys it.

The SE FAQ acquired AIDS from an African prostitute. The prostitute's from an African country that's ravaged by starvation. Selling her body was the only financial recourse she had left.

Holy **** is that Wesley Willis in your avatar? I saw that guy play live once and got headbutted by him. He was wearing sweatpants and peed himself onstage.

I guess you haven't seen it, but he's referencing perhaps the funniest scene in television of the last five years:

A Silver Lake man’s attempt to install solar panels at his home were interrupted when he found $175,000 worth of marijuana -- bottled, bundled and vacuumed-sealed -- stowed in a vault under a backyard hot tub...

Not wanting to delve deeper into the bag, for fear of discovering something worse, Reed opted for the quick and legal way out. He called the LAPD.

“I’m sorry, sir, everyone in your district is out on an emergency. Could you drive it to the station yourself?”

I manage to avoid blowing up at her.

“Yeah, uhhh … I don’t think driving around with 20 pounds of drugs in my car is really a good idea.”

Just a guess. I'm a white male age 18-49, so everyone listens to me.
Why do I care if people treat me like ****. Happens every week. Doesnt bother me slightly. When people put me down I ignore them.

Words dont hurt unless you let them. It is a choice to be hurt by words. You cant act like everyone is inherently hurt by words.

2. I hate no one, but a fair amount of people hate me. Why should I ever let the people that hate me bother me. I firmly believe in turning the other cheek. I said hi to a guy who has coldcocked me in the face 3 times in the past 4 years about 6 weeks ago when I saw him in the grocery store. His response was "why the **** are you talking to me?" It didn't phase me a bit and I told him "have a good night." If more people let things go and forgave people then society would be a better place.
