    Honestly those lips are monstrous. I'll be happy to see that fad die.

    Frankly what that guy did was pretty dumb, but it's typical of non "classically" trained bomb techs, as in, this guy probably never graduated from an explosive ordnance disposal school.

    A US EOD tech doing what that guy did would lose his or her job.

    But in all honesty, think of it like this: if you were a guy strapping a bomb to a 7 year old, would you put an anti tamper functionality on it? The whole point is that you have control of the device, not the victim, hence the cell phone.

    US EOD here. Looks about as real as a device could.

    Although to your point, I would've handled the situation pretty differently.

    Edit: just so everyone knows, the idea is that once he pulled the battery, the device probably won't work as intended. Probably.

    Uh, okay? What the fuck does that have to do with you buying a fucking computer from rent-a-center, something only a financially illiterate fuckwit would do?

    Enjoy your shitty credit and back injury, homie. They both compliment your utter lack of self awareness. You're a lost cause.

    [–] What is your "This person has no idea how the real world works" moment? atlas5280 1 points ago in AskReddit

    In another post you already acknowledged you use a PO box for your regular mail, and that its an hour and fifteen minutes closer than anywhere that sells electronics. So the narrowness of your street has fucking NOTHING to do with anything.

    Your account is also only 8 days old.

    You're the first fullblown /r/quityourbullshit troll I've encountered in the wild.

    You're an argumentative, self contradicting ass. I hope, at least, that you're telling the truth about buying shit from rent-a-center, because it gives me the tiniest sense of cosmic justice.

    I bet you have a post office or ups store pretty close to you with PO boxes that amazon prime/fedex will deliver to. They're usually around 10 bucks a month. You're just making excuses for poor financial decisions. Don't let pride and laziness keep you poor, homie.

    But... why wouldn't you go for traditional financing, or a credit card?

    You're justifying paying 33% extra for something you probably should not have bought at all.

    I'm honestly baffled by your logic.

    Did you seriously just pull a whataboutism to confirm MY bias, while defending your own? What fucking planet is this?

    Your argument is actually that because other politicians lie, it's okay for the ones your support to do so, even though they lie about issues you care about?

    [–] Seth MacFarlane Donates $2.5 Million To NPR & Its LA Station KPCC atlas5280 29 points ago in entertainment

    So why don't you apply all this critical thought to the fact that Trump and the GOP are constantly saying one thing and doing another? Taxes, spending, trade, immigration. Or are you just complicit in the lying?

    A liberty loving patriot? Only people in rightwing echo chambers use those words.

    Says the guy who's post history is dominated by alt-right drivel, with a healthy mix of "I was banned from X sub for being conservative" victim-hood thrown in.

    Talk about projection. Your echochamber is inception level deep.

    The script for the movie wasn't an adaptation of the book. The name was changed late in production. Verhoeven never read the book.

    Well I do remember a guy like 10 years ago strangled his girlfriend with a lamp cord then made it look like she hung herself with it. Case was closed, he was free and clear but confessed because of remorse. Said he got the idea from an episode of CSI

    Ok, I can't say this without being rude:

    If you think international shipping for a drug manufactured by an American pharmaceutical company costs $490, you're a fucking moron.

    Well, I do have insurance. So iI was only responsible for my copay, and my plan covered the rest, but still, what the fuck, America.

    Also, I spend about 5k a year on insurance.

    [–] Intestinal Worms atlas5280 28 points ago in creepy

    Funny story: I traveled to Jamaica and suspected a hookworm infection after my foot became super itchy. Doctor agreed and prescribed pills that, in developing nations, are considered essential and are worth like 10 bucks a pill or something relatively affordable. In the United States, they're almost $500 a pill. I needed 6.

    Yay American healthcare!

    Polio is spread by drinking water with human shit in it.

    Unless it's end of the world for-the-survival-of-the-species type scenario, I'm just going to maintain a no incest policy. Even if cousins are fair game genetically, it's still a social and cultural no-fly zone.

    [–] Johnny Knoxville Breaks Down Every Injury of His Career atlas5280 5 points ago in videos

    I'll reform my statement, which was made in jest.

    Incest isn't bad, so long as it's otherwise consensual. Inbreeding, however, carries such a risk of inheriting recessive disorders, even from healthy individuals who may or may not be aware of their family medical or genetic history, that it should not be considered medically sound.

    Fuck who ever you want. Don't have kids with family members.
