Posted in: What makes conspiracy theorists tick and what is the best way to combat their beliefs? See in context

Perhaps they have a strong desire (often misplaced, of course)to want the world to be a better place. Combatting their beliefs? Isn't that suggesting that they are all wrong? Obviously some, like those holocaust-denying, anti-semitic cretins, need to be fought using the masses of evidence to the contrary, but is there evidence to say that all conspiracy theories are baseless?

Tran Ang Hung sets odd standards if he thinks a song about spite-motivated arson is "too soft, too cute, too sentimental"

The characters in the book echo the characters in the song, in my opinion, not to mention the themes of love, lust, alcohol, and getting stuffed around by the opposite sex.

"Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it." - george Santayana

As long as events such as these are commemorated, and not celebrated, we stand a chance of retaining our humanity.

Jero is entitled to wear a fluoro pink rubber duck, if he so wishes. At the end of the day, people want to hear his voice, and that's what will keep them coming back.

I think they should shut ALL rigs down immediately. I look forward to the resulting anarchy. I especially look forward to the people who voted in favour of shutting them down screaming blue murder when the world economy goes to pieces as a result.

Japanese have a perverse sense of respect for senseis.

I disagree. Actually, the have a sense of respect which is occasionally abused by perverse sensei.

HeyLars,

You were doing well up the the point you started talking about "primitive taboos". I'm just glad you're not a judge. While I'll wait and see if the man is guilty or not, of course, I live in hope that the presiding magistrate has conventional wisdom and is firmly bound by those taboos that protect our youth.

What's the point of marriage if infidelity is accepted?

Bringing up happy children.

Yes, I'd be thrilled if I found out that one of my parents were cheating on the other.

"But what kind of moron calls police about something he sees on youtube? Some people should be shot."

"i hate such informers. They do not have a life."

Such informers probably save lives by getting the morons who commit crimes like this arrested. They are true heroes who care more for their fellow road users than road abusers.

Posted in: Japan offered to hide Bamiyan statues, but Taliban asked Japan to convert to Islam instead See in context

If religions were compared to school children, then Islam would be the playground bullies.

What the heck does that make the Christians then? The psychotic paedophiles preying on all the kiddies, meek and violent alike?

You're both wrong. And dammit, perhaps you should actually read up on what Christ, christians and christianity is all about. Then you wouldn't be so quick to blame us for us for the sins of a tiny minority who call themselves christian, and you wouldn't come up looking like such a bigot, because you're better than that, I'm sure.

Seriously though, gogogo, nobody has come even close to celebrating this, and most of us had worked out that the dutch girl crashing out was instrumental in Kodaira, (who didn't crash, incidentally) crossing the finishing line first.

Posted in: Do it at home: Train manners in Japan See in context

Kids, they should never use public transportation. They cry, they play.. They're dumb

And some of them, hellhound, never grow up.

Anyhow, people who take up more than one seat intentionally should be made to sit on the floor. Especially those without sympathy for the terminally overtired who have a choice of either working 12 hour days and getting drunk with their bosses or having a future without any kind of job security whatsoever.

People who barge onto trains before letting people get out are my favourite targets. Elbows out..oh, so sorry! Morons who destroy their hearing with headphones while sapping the sanity of those around them also make it hard to enjoy any journey on a rush hour train. Parrots who screech into cellphones need typing lessons at least.

However, social rejects who sit in priority seating, or any seat while the elderly, pregnant or infirm stand, well, just keep shaming the hell out of them when you see them in action, good people!

At least the 10th, and no, we don't need another. The first was pretty good.

I don't recall the passage of the Bible where it says "Thou shalt not abort a fetus."

Try "Thou shalt not kill." Try to decide exactly when that mass of cells with a once-and-never-again combination of DNA becomes a human. Remember the last time a group of people rationalised the slaughter of hundreds of thousands, and ask yourself, am I not doing the same thing?
