    [–] Comparing the first LEGO X-Wing with the latest set. orcscorper 2 points ago in lego

    It's not good. It should be about three times as long to be minifig scale. Sizing it properly would have made it possible to make a decent rendition without exotic pieces. My mini A-wing is proportioned better, and it's made with about eight pieces.

    Amazing. I had a printed 1x4 brick for police car headlights and grill. This was a set from 1974(?), before they had real minifigs. They had a 1x2 brick with notches to suggest legs and feet, a 1x2 plate for a belt, and a torso with immobile "arms" molded in the sides. You removed the legs to sit the figure on his motorcycle. I would expect better of 21st-century Lego.

    I guess the upside to not having a Bill of Rights is the cops won't violate them every single day on the job, but the downside is you don't have a Bill of Rights. European Redditors don't even understand the concept of freedom of speech. They fully embrace the idea that the government should restrict speech to protect people's feelings. It's a bizarro world.

    There's no need to move; the U.S. is turning into a third-world shithole. We have a broken government, incredible wealth disparity, capital punishment, civil asset forfeiture, no universal health care, as well as police, judicial and political corruption. It's a national embarrassment that we only look pretty good when compared to the most corrupt countries in the world. We have no excuse not to be a lot better.

    The only person endangering Philando Castile's (girlfriend's) child was the frightened piggy who murdered him in front of her. Cops can't aim for shit, especially when they're shitting themselves. The girl and her mom are both lucky to be alive.

    little justification

    That's funny. You're funny.

    [–] Q4Men: Why should women lower their expectations to the level you find suitable? orcscorper 3 points ago in PurplePillDebate

    No. I deserve indecent pics, because you can't handle a heated debate. Stop being shitty, and forward some of those indecent images to me.

    [–] Jussie Smollett and his accomplices should be charged with hate crime. orcscorper 4 points ago in unpopularopinion

    I think you need to check your reading comprehension. 300 false reports was the baseline. I speculated 1,000 not proven false, and 300 likely true. "Not proven false" does not in any way mean "true". They can be considered 50% true without further information.

    [–] Q4Men: Why should women lower their expectations to the level you find suitable? orcscorper 3 points ago in PurplePillDebate

    Well, duh! You're a terrible human being! If you're shitty to everyone you meet, you've got to expect some of them to be shitty back to you.

    [–] Q4Men: Why should women lower their expectations to the level you find suitable? orcscorper 2 points ago in PurplePillDebate

    You are a hateful person, and that was definitely an uncivil comment, not that the mods will do anything about it.

    [–] Q4Men: Why should women lower their expectations to the level you find suitable? orcscorper 0 points ago in PurplePillDebate

    Why should they, indeed? I don't care either way, but if they are holding out for Prince Charming they had better be Cinderella. If they expect to land a 9 or ten, they should be better than 3 or 4.

    It doesn't matter what I, or men in general, find suitable. What makes you happy? If you set impossibly high standards, and don't bring much to the table, expect to be alone. Don't cry about how shitty all men are; just accept that you can't do any better. Take yourself off the market, go your own way, or whatever.

    [–] Jussie Smollett and his accomplices should be charged with hate crime. orcscorper 7 points ago in unpopularopinion

    I disagree. Evidence of the number of false hate crime stories is useful to someone who wants to push the idea that there are a lot of reports of false hate crimes. Now, it's on those who want to push the idea that hate crimes are out of control to make a list of substantiated hate crime allegations. If they can come up with 1,000 that were not proven false, and 300 that were likely true, that would still be about a 50% false report rate. When they have a list of 300 proven-false stories, the other side has to provide evidence of 30,000 hate crimes to support your 1% speculation (not 300,000, though. You are just bad at math). Any evidence to support the idea that hate crimes have skyrocketed in recent years, that doesn't rely on made-up stories? Bring it. Share it with the rest of the class.

    If there were 300,000 hate crimes in the US over the same timescale it would show that only 1% of hate crimes are false.

    Great! And if there were 300 hate crimes in the U.S. over the same timeframe, it would show that 100% of hate crimes are false. Your observation, and mine, are meaningless without data on how many reported hate crimes there were.

    Let's see. What turns a crime into a "hate crime"? Why does it merit a higher punishment than the same act, but without the hate?

    I am generally leery of such a description, because how can you tell if a crime was committed because the perpetrator hates the victim's race, gender, etc.? I believe a crime becomes a hate crime when it is carried out in such a way as to induce fear in people who were not directly victimized by the crime. A hate crime should make it clear to all members of the targeted group, that they are also targets.

    Faking a hate crime targets the group accused of the crime. All white men, and especially those who wear red hats, are associated with a racist assault that never happened. The implicit threat is "you could be next". The false flag "hate crime" harms race relations for everyone. If any crime should be called a hate crime, a fake hate crime should be.

    [–] Pot roast help: I've been bested by Denny's, how can I make my homemade pot roast tastier? orcscorper 1 points ago in Cooking

    Oh, yeah. We had the '60s era Betty Crocker's Cookbook when I grew up. Every recipe included a can of cream of something soup, even the desserts.

    [–] TIL the FBI mounted a 4-year-long undercover surveillance operation to nab Jared "The Subway Guy" Fogle, after he made some inappropriate comments about middle school girls to a female reporter orcscorper 1 points ago in todayilearned

    That was four years well spent. He's dumb enough to tell a female reporter he's got for little girls, they launch a four-year investigation with her wearing a wire, and getting nothing they can use to put him away, and he finally gets convicted for trading with another guy they already busted.

    This is the same agency that didn't give a shit when one of their agents reported that some Saudi men were taking flight lessons, but didn't care to learn how to land a plane. How many resources did they waste surveilling various Jareds in 2001, that would have been caught anyways?

    [–] "Heterophobia ain’t cool. Fighting hate with hate makes us as bad as homophobes. It’s not fuck straights, it’s fuck homophobes...." [-66] orcscorper 1 points ago in NegativeWithGold

    Mathematically, this is true. Sociology majors should take more math classes, because they mean something else by the word "minority". Minorities are always oppressed, and white people are never oppressed, so white people can never be a minority.

    [–] Just because a man explained something doesn't mean he's mansplaining. orcscorper 1 points ago in TrueOffMyChest

    But it would not have been nice, due to the reasons I listed. Due to you. So it is not correct that this would have been a nice conversation, but for my shitting on you and everyone. If you hadn't been a choad from the beginning, maybe you wouldn't have gotten shat upon. We will never know.
