    [–] The man in charge of our country... psuedophilosopher 1 points ago in PoliticalHumor

    The ridiculous narrative of "take things people said in their whole context". That's just crazy talk there.

    It's literally on the same page as Trump continued to talk

    “Everyone tells me if you get one of these independent counsels it ruins your presidency. It takes years and years and I won't be able to do anything. This is the worst thing that ever happened to me.”

    But yeah, fuck context, because Trump bad. The guy is a shitbag already, there's no need to take things he said out of context to prove it, and it actively makes it harder to convince people of how bad he is when he legitimately says some fucked up shit, because of all the other times that a headline made things look worse than they were. It's a boy who cried wolf situation.

    Every headline that removes the rest of the context of what he said just fuels his supporters and their belif of Fake NewsTM

    Thanks for adding context to the quote. Headlines won't be doing that, but hopefully some people will bother to use reading comprehension skills and realize that his statement is not an admission of guilt, but an acknowledgment of how much of a pain in the ass this was going to be for him.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again, the guy does enough shady shit that there's no need to take what he says out of context to frame something as worse than it actually is. Every time they take something out of context, it just gives his supporters more fuel to the "fake news" fire.

    Well, yes. The back story is the first minute of the video where he is microwaving the glowstick, but I linked to the video with a timestamp of 61 seconds, to show the moment of it blasting him in the eyes.

    [–] Every time I see people trying to parallel park psuedophilosopher 4 points ago in rickandmorty

    I think what pushes it into /r/iamverysmart material is the reference to the monty hall problem.

    Some people are naturally adept at spatial awareness, and it makes sense for them to just think it's a "you get it or you don't" situation, because they "just get it". But then he goes a step further to include an entirely unrelated concept, with the implication that he "just gets" that one too.

    It smacks of being a proclamation of superiority rather than a (poorly thought out) statement of observation.

    [–] Every time I see people trying to parallel park psuedophilosopher 1 points ago in rickandmorty

    Well, a very small amount of practice with someone explaining the basic concepts of using location markers such as your back tire or mirrors to you, or a whole bunch of practice with cheap pylons that you aren't overly concerned about hitting causing a hundreds of dollars problem for you.

    If you haven't had either of those options, parallel parking can be a daunting task.

    The problem for many people is that the task is not something they have much practice with, and the consequences of fucking it up can alter their life style. Far too many people can't afford a fuck up that costs them even hundreds of dollars.

    Thanks dude, I need to go to sleep, and this is really going to help make that happen in a reasonable amount of time....

    Hey, what's on YouTube?

    That's called the Photic sneeze reflex, and apparently it only affects a minority of people. I always just assumed it was that way for everyone, but when someone said they need to sneeze and I told them to look at a bright light they looked at me like I was weird. Then I asked around and found out most people think I'm weird.

    [–] Double Standards psuedophilosopher 1 points ago in PoliticalHumor

    didn't you know? That rapper guy that nobody ever heard about for the last decade or so that died was doing a documentary on the cure for HIV. That's why he got shot. They already have the cure, but they don't want us to know about it so they can keep getting richer from selling us drugs that treat without curing. /tinfoilhat

    [–] Can’t resist psuedophilosopher 14 points ago in riskofrain

    I don't know if I would say "very survivable". A blazing stone golem has one shot me from full health and with leech healing from my attacks. Flame Dot is easily far and away the number one way I die late game, and it's not only titans killing me.

    [–] Congress Is About to Ban the Government From Offering Free Online Tax Filing. Thank TurboTax. psuedophilosopher 2 points ago in technology

    Automotive repairs is the odd man out in your examples. It can be a lot more complex than just reading the simple directions and following them, it can require skills, tools, and strength that not all people have.

    [–] Congress Is About to Ban the Government From Offering Free Online Tax Filing. Thank TurboTax. psuedophilosopher 4 points ago in technology

    Only if you are exceedingly bad at following simple directions, or if you are itemizing your taxes to attempt a larger tax exemption than the standard deduction, and have a lot of stuff to itemize.

    I've done my own taxes every year, and it isn't hard. People just get it in their heads that it's some unimaginably complex nightmare and pay someone else to do it for them.

    Drunk rambling post warning: I am drunk and probably rambling.

    The difficult thing is that you probably did take after him in some small part you wouldn't ever want to acknowledge as being from him.

    It happened to me, so I am projecting that it probably happened to others too. I don't think someone can be raised by a person without being affected by or acquiring some amount of their flaws and traits. Your dad is, statistically speaking, probably not a psychopathic bastard that only has a goal of making the world worse. He probably has some good traits and some bad traits, like most people. Those bad traits seem to include old school homophopia or racial phobias based on the (my dad didn't raise no blank) context of your comment.

    All we can do every day is try to be better than we were, or where we came from.

    There's a way to see removed contents, by changing reddit into removeddit in the url of a comment thread.

    Specifically, what the removed post said was

    Kid's dad needs to take him behind the shed for a little "chat."

    Yeah, I get that the guy was being a weirdass dickwad, but I don't see how such a post is so offensive as to be [Removed] rather than [Deleted].

    Apparently the mods decided to do their thing for this post, rather than just letting the downvotes flow.

    Fuck the Highway Trust Fund. Let the states levy their own taxes for road building and fuck the federal government right out of the equation. If the feds want the benefit of increased tax revenue from interstate commerce flourishing, they shouldn't be allowed to fucking hold that funding hostage to force states to comply with federal rules that the feds are not legally allowed to force on the states.

    You answered so many questions, but then right at the end you chucked in some terminology that leaves us just as confused as before.

    Not even remotely close. What you can see is a tiny bit of her vulva.

    I don't know if it is the worst possible, but I am pretty sure it's the current record holder.
