    [–] The time Chris Farley got really honest on the Conan O'Brien show but we all still laughed erkdaclerk 13 points ago in videos

    Probably more honestly. I've always wondered just how many different cows I'm eating whenever I have a burger.

    [–] Why are people saying "Thank you Kanye!!!" in the comments of memes. erkdaclerk 11 points ago in OutOfTheLoop

    Yeah most likely, but there will still be some people who stop consuming his stuff altogether.

    [–] Why are people saying "Thank you Kanye!!!" in the comments of memes. erkdaclerk 47 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago) in OutOfTheLoop

    A lot of people have viewed his last two albums as weaker than his older stuff. On top of that, some of the cultish love among his fanbase has wained since his Trump comments. Basically if this album doesn't blow some minds, some of his fans are ready to abandon ship.

    Edit: Cool, down voted for a factual rundown of the situation...

    [–] Volunteer Opportunities in Puerto Rico this November/December erkdaclerk 7 points ago in PuertoRico

    I believe they're asking for recommendations is part of doing their "homework". Obviously they could google it but they are reaching out to get some first hand knowledge from the community. Your comment came off as patronizing and dismissive to someone who just genuinely wants to help.

    [–] 7 Dead In What May Be Australia's Worst Mass Shooting In 22 Years erkdaclerk 3 points ago in news

    Very true, but seeing as this is the worst mass shooting in however many years, it's still accurate.

    [–] 7 Dead In What May Be Australia's Worst Mass Shooting In 22 Years erkdaclerk 25 points ago in news

    That's a little much, man. The legal system is supposed to be morally above the crimes of our worst. It doesn't always work like that, but that's the ideal we should strive for.

    [–] Mormon church, Boy Scouts to end century-long relationship erkdaclerk 1 points ago in neutralnews

    Are you implying I don't want to support anything associated with "political correctness"? Because that's not true, but in this case the "obvious" reason to include girls is because the organization has been losing money. Two birds with one stone, increase the pool of potential scouts while simultaneously enjoying the press of allowing girls to join.

    [–] Mormon church, Boy Scouts to end century-long relationship erkdaclerk 4 points ago in neutralnews

    No, it's an attempt at halting the rapid decline in membership. It's a business move, not a political one. It just gets viewed politically because including women in anything they were excluded from previously is always viewed by some as political, regardless of the reasoning.

    [–] What true fact sounds incredibly fake? erkdaclerk 7 points ago in AskReddit

    But you could say they are all cats.

    [–] Homemade Tomato Ketchup erkdaclerk 1 points ago in GifRecipes

    I'm curious, will this spoil quicker than store bought ketchup? That shit seems to stay good forever.

    [–] 'Arrested Development': Jeffrey Tambor will be part of season 5 erkdaclerk 5 points ago in television

    I don't think she was playing games or baiting him, you make it sound like there are hard rules in these scenarios. She can be affectionate, but that doesn't mean he is owed anything beyond that. As a man, I get that "teasing" can be frustrating but you have to understand that it's not always the woman's intent to tease or play games. She might genuinely have only felt comfortable with the kissing, and just because they made out does not mean that she "baited" him if she doesn't want to go further. She can draw the line wherever she wants, that doesn't mean she's playing games.

    [–] 'Arrested Development': Jeffrey Tambor will be part of season 5 erkdaclerk 5 points ago in television

    I agree with this wholeheartedly, everyone should be educated on how to deal with these sorts of situations. As to Aziz, unfortunately a he-said/she-said situation. He came out and apologized, and it felt genuine. I think it should end there with this one as it's not like he's some serial abuser or anything even remotely close.

    [–] 'Arrested Development': Jeffrey Tambor will be part of season 5 erkdaclerk 7 points ago in television

    That making out is okay but further is not. It's called taking things slowly.

    [–] 'Arrested Development': Jeffrey Tambor will be part of season 5 erkdaclerk 2 points ago in television

    Your truth is not everyone's truth. It's easy to say you wouldn't do it or that it's an obvious and easy situation to leave, but look at Louie's victims. They had every chance to leave but we're stunned by what was happening. Putting this pressure on the victim to act rationally in a difficult situation is unfair. Not everyone can just deal with it. Not saying that Aziz is a monster or anything, just that was shouldn't expect victims to be at their most rational during a traumatic experience.

    [–] 'Arrested Development': Jeffrey Tambor will be part of season 5 erkdaclerk 2 points ago in television

    This is more accurate. It's easy to call people dumb when you "know" that you're right, but everyone holds some opinions that someone else could laugh off as "dumb".

    [–] 'Arrested Development': Jeffrey Tambor will be part of season 5 erkdaclerk 81 points ago in television

    I don't know, it's hard to say. I certainly haven't heard any projects announced with Aziz attached. His social media presence has dried up completely, and I do know people who can't look at him the same way anymore.

    [–] 'Arrested Development': Jeffrey Tambor will be part of season 5 erkdaclerk 90 points ago * (lasted edited 20 days ago) in television

    A few women (including a trans woman) have claimed that Tambor made lewd, targeted sexual comments at them, and one of them (the trans woman) claimed that he groped her. The fact that there are multiple people reporting is giving a little more weight to the claims. Also the fact that he was portraying a trans woman in a groundbreaking role and his victim was trans is adding insult to injury.

    Edit: I really don't understand the downvotes here, I'm just stating why it was a controversy...
