    [–] Stefan Molyneux pretends to be "an attractive young woman" and gets called out on it. RedRaiderTravis 14 points ago * (lasted edited a day ago) in quityourbullshit

    Well in a sense everyone is a philosopher. We almost all think about these kinds of issues at various levels of depth.

    However, someone who has zero education in philosophy, virtually no familiarity with the history of philosophy, who doesn't utilize any of the traditional categories and distinctions made by other philosophers, and cites almost no contemporary philosophers (because he clearly doesn't read their work) is a "philosopher" in that first sense only. And Molyneux thinks he is (or acts like he is) a serious philosopher, and claims to have "solved" several problems of philosophy that have persisted for millennia. He is an imposter and a blow-hard.

    Edit: Just to add one thing, here: We all think about physics to some degree, but if someone calls themselves a "physicist" we assume they have some education in physics and some serious intellectual connection to what is going on in that academic community. Likewise with psychology, etc. And we all think about philosophy, but that doesn't mean it's exactly correct for any individual to start calling himself a philosopher.

    [–] Roy Moore met wife Kayla when she was a minor, and he was 30, at a girls' dance recital RedRaiderTravis 34 points ago in politics

    Yeah, what Moore is accused of pales in comparison to the allegations against Trump himself. And, you know, his own words....

    "Just grab 'em by the pussy." - The President of the United States of America.

    [–] Sources: McMaster Mocked Trump’s Intelligence In a Private Dinner RedRaiderTravis 6 points ago in politics

    Here's the full quote. Attempt to decipher it at your own risk....

    “Look, having nuclear — my uncle was a great professor and scientist and engineer, Dr. John Trump at MIT; good genes, very good genes, OK, very smart, the Wharton School of Finance, very good, very smart — you know, if you’re a conservative Republican, if I were a liberal, if, like, OK, if I ran as a liberal Democrat, they would say I’m one of the smartest people anywhere in the world — it’s true! — but when you’re a conservative Republican they try — oh, do they do a number — that’s why I always start off: Went to Wharton, was a good student, went there, went there, did this, built a fortune — you know I have to give my like credentials all the time, because we’re a little disadvantaged — but you look at the nuclear deal, the thing that really bothers me — it would have been so easy, and it’s not as important as these lives are — nuclear is powerful; my uncle explained that to me many, many years ago, the power and that was 35 years ago; he would explain the power of what’s going to happen and he was right, who would have thought? — but when you look at what’s going on with the four prisoners — now it used to be three, now it’s four — but when it was three and even now, I would have said it’s all in the messenger; fellas, and it is fellas because, you know, they don’t, they haven’t figured that the women are smarter right now than the men, so, you know, it’s gonna take them about another 150 years — but the Persians are great negotiators, the Iranians are great negotiators, so, and they, they just killed, they just killed us.”

    He's not just stupid, he is mentally impaired.

    [–] It literally takes no talent to be a wizard in Harry Potter RedRaiderTravis 3 points ago in Showerthoughts

    Perhaps he is saying that the things they do are too easy? Like just saying words and wand-pointing? I am sure some Harry Potter fans will show up and have a few things to say.

    [–] Was told to post here: Rude lady thinks she can eat for free and leave. Now banned from our store! RedRaiderTravis 13 points ago in MaliciousCompliance

    Definitely. The kind of anger that one feels in one's body. I can read stories about people being jerks without feeling that "I want to punch something" sensation that this one gave me.

    [–] Former Oklahoma state senator has agreed to plead guilty to a child sex trafficking offense RedRaiderTravis 9 points ago in news

    I liked the way the article just reported the story and didn't politicize it. I had to read quite a bit before discovering the party to which he belonged, and even then it was only mentioned by the letter. Good on

    I was getting physically angry reading that story! I am glad it had a good, just ending. It's always nice to have managers who have your back at a customer service job!

    Hey, he sometimes asked them if he could jerk it in front of them before pulling it out. I mean, what a gentleman.

    [–] Furious RedRaiderTravis 40 points ago in childfree

    I had coworkers literally gang up on me a few weeks ago. They kept saying I will change my mind and all that bullshit. I finally, for the first time ever, just said, “I actually can’t have kids.”

    I am just now realizing how much I take the fact that I work with several other childfree people for granted....

    [–] Preet Bharara: Paul Manafort May Flip To Avoid A Harsh Sentence RedRaiderTravis 30 points ago in politics

    As long as we keep his ass here in the US, it has to be Mueller. Manafort is doing everything he can to get off house arrest because he absolutely intends to flee.
    They are all going to flip, or at least enough of them will. Flynn and his son are facing charges now as well, and you can bet Mueller is already giving Flynn Sr. the "You will either flip or your son goes to prison for a long fucking time" ultimatum. They know Trump has no loyalty to anyone but himself, and this will be his undoing: they have no reason to be loyal to him either.

    [–] Can we just fire Kingsbury now and get it over with? RedRaiderTravis 5 points ago * (lasted edited 18 days ago) in TexasTech

    How did Ruffin do at ECU? Not bad, actually. From Wikipedia:

    After seasons of 6-7 and 5-7, in 2012 East Carolina posted an 8-5 record which included an appearance in the New Orleans Bowl. In 2013, McNeill's Pirates posted the second-most wins in school history, going 10-3 including a 37-20 win over Ohio University in the 2013 Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl. The season also included big wins over in-state rivals North Carolina (55-31) and North Carolina State (42-28).[13] In 2014, however, most felt the Pirates underachieved, marking an 8-5 record and losing 4 out of their last 6 games."

    Hell, I would take that right now...

    Truth is, we should have promoted Ruff when we fired Leach. We didn't. We fucked it up and hired Tubs. Ruff went to his alma mater and despite doing fairly well, got fired. I have no idea what happened there.

    I have no idea if getting Ruff is in the realm of possibility now. Maybe we can shoot higher. Who knows. Who knows what will happen to Tech football now. It's all up in the air.
