Vikings vs Goths!

"'Cause of COURSE you can't be intelligent, successful, or productive if you wear black! And I thought I was annoyed when they discontinued their black furniture a few years back. =PPPPPPPPP"

Edit: Hoax wank!

Not-a-hoax wank!

omg oppression
Minor stupid, but still a lovely little turd to wake up to in the morning:


Over in guinea_pigs, we have billiedirect asking if s/he is insane for being offended by cooked guinea pigs being shown on TV, but understands that it's part of accepted Peruvian culture, as is eating cats/dogs in some Asian countries. Fair enough, but the stupid comes in approachmdnight's golden comment:

dude asians don't eat dogs you fucking racist piece of trash

go back to reading stormfront instead of guinea_pigs

As I said, pretty minor, but still amusing. The rest of the thread is basically approachmdnight repeating that accusing Asians of eating dogs is like "saying black people have tails" in that it's not true, and that if you think that it is, you are RACIST.

Unlocked at time of posting!

EDIT: Minorities can't be racist. I'm serious; take a course on it some time and you'll learn quite a bit.

Probably the same course that teaches that stating facts = racism...



So over in stupid_free birdlawyer posts about some crazy 17 year old buffoonary.

But then moments later, to much amusements and dismays, ayanamisama posts THE SAME THING!

But yeah, whoopty crap right...

BUT NO!! DON'T BE FOOLED! A TRIPLE POST but scumfux seals the hattrick and makes the ultimate.

These are all unlocked at the time of posting, but be wary! at any moment these accounts may become BANNED or EXPLOSIONS!

EDIT: Have some links. Gotta follow the rules and what not!
futurebird, paraphrased: "Digg is sexist because it focuses on video games, technology, and science, which are only things guys like! Where are all the articles on children, art, and food? You know, women topics! (source)"

But don't worry! futurebird wants to let everyone in feminist know about a new rogue version of Digg called sk*rt! Get it? SKIRT! That's for women right?! And it has all the topics women care about, like spirituality, parenting, fashion and food! Girl stuff! This isn't hypocritical or sexist itself at all! Woo! (edit: apparently some people are getting the impression that i'm saying futurebird is pro-sk*rt. I'm well aware that she wishes it integrated with Digg, but I'm also aware she's saying that sk*rt is a female-Digg, which to me just comes off as silly-sexist too. You may disagree crazy I know).

And the problem can't possibly be just that "when Kevin and the rest of the crew at Revision3 (who run digg) picked new topics they based them on what items had the enough diggs to justify it's own category" and "Food just isn't a popular topic and can often be incorporated into the heath topics, fashion and art into the entertainment, etc." (happy221 both times right here), it has to be that women are marginalized!

Excuse me while I accuse Wikipedia of being sexist. The article on Penises is longer than the one on Vaginas.

early evening edit: likeawoman uses the example of the way Digg users commented on the Duke rape case as an example of how Digg users are pretty fucking insane at times (source), causing idealistagain to go batshit and demanding likeawoman to leave her already ravaged by lies community alone.

"duke lacrosse rape case"....I'm a little bit confused as to what you're referring to here.

Would it possibly be the Duke lacrosse case where it was proven that there was no rape and that the only reason the charges even got as far as they did was because of an aggressive and corrupt district attorney with more political ambition than ethics who abused his power? The one where that DA has just recently been disbarred for prosecutorial misconduct?

I'm not sure how there could be any such thing as a "Duke lacrosse rape case" when there was no rape. To continue to call it that does nothing more than unfairly smears these players, the university, and my community (I live not far from Durham).

Puerto Rico is a third world country!

Over in bad_service, tracyluvsya relates a tale of icky hotel woe from a stay in Puerto Rico. Post itself isn't especially stupid (although one does wonder why she thinks ants have a hard time with 8 stories when there's a cookie involved.)

The real fun starts here. It goes something like this:

xhappyx: You have to be careful traveling to a third world country.
kiranlightpaw: Puerto Rico is a US territory, it's not a third world country.
xhappyx: LOL FURRY

There's more stupid in the comments, too. Short, but cute. Also, not (yet) meta.
I was having a little discussion about karma over in convert_me. I mention hundreds of thousands of dead innocent people from a tsunami as possible evidence against the idea that good things happen to good people and vice versa.

enders_shadow says, "IF, reincarnation is true (I'm not sure if it is--again, sensible but no evidence for or against, really) then maybe those tsunami victims were Nazi soldiers in a past life, or crack-selling criminals who raped and killed their way to the top of the drug pyramid, only to die a peaceful death in their sleep and something bad had to happen to them."

Um, that's kinda harsh, no?

EDIT: Perhaps more offensive than patently stupid.  If so, something about cat macros!


Are we ready for some more CF stupid?

Over in childfree (I know, I know), there is a discussion about a man who was frustrated at a group of kids repeatedly throwing rocks at his house, so he shot and killed one of them. While there is some expected sympathy towards the man, slithead brings the stupid with his claims that arresting this man is bullshit. That alone would not have made me tread the waters, but this comment takes the cake: 

What if the guy owned indoor pets? A house may be an inanimate object, but a thrown rock could lead to a broken window, which could lead to a pet escaping, which could lead to death for the pet. That's why deadly force would be justified if other approaches (like calling the police) had proven ineffective at solving the problem.



Apropos of nothing, angelplay decides that now is the time that vintagephoto learn of the irrelevant lies and deception perpetrated by one nocturne333. Nobody gives a shit, so angelplay makes a special effort to explain to each and every commenter why they should. nocturne333 retaliates.

Personally, I'm with this guy.


So over in fanficrants quitel posts this diatribe last night about smutfics and innocent children asking about strap-ons. He/She/It switches his/her/its argument from, "There's nothing wrong with people having free will and posting NC-17 fics. ... Parents, please put blocks on your computer so your five-year-old won't find stories about how rape solidifies a relationship." to "I know there are a lot of NC-17 writers out there that can write well...I just wish they used their talents for something better."

Cue "You can't tell me what to write about!" and "It's not my job to police others' kids!" wank.

But the stupid doesn't stop there!

quitel is back today with a flouncy flounce post! " I am so glad that I could make you all so happy with my previous post. I raise my glass to you, fanficrants. You're my favorite. I'm honored that you would go to the trouble to sit at your computer and comment for hours on end. You truly amaze me. You really do."


The Internet was invented in 1992!!
Bringing you quality stupid since 2005!
