    [–] 2-for-1 Defening! (w/ Kanye and Hip Hop) rkk2 1 points ago in lewronggeneration

    For real I’m surprised isn’t held in higher regard than he is. I get he kind of seems like a gimmick but I think he’s a decent lyricist and his flow is amazing. Look up Art and Life if you haven’t heard it. He has the last verse and it’s amazing.

    My point wasn’t those people don’t exist, it’s that it doesn’t apply to enough Americans to warrant being a stereotype. I didn’t even take issue with how you phrased it, although others did.

    Were you aware of the stereotype before you came here? Are you familiar with confirmation bias?

    It’s kind of a poor point. I said that stereotypes aren’t really true and your response seems to be that they are because you have met people that fit them? That means literally anything could be a stereotype if you look hard enough.

    [–] Cut It Out Rocket League rkk2 1 points ago in CringeAnarchy

    Most of the damage from football comes from getting the concussion and then taking little blows the head. It’s the brain moving in your skull and then repeatedly getting hit. Without getting into the money aspect that’s why the NFL, colleges, and high schools are taking concussion detection more seriously than they were ten years ago.

    Also all the majority of the research done on it was done on NFL players who committed suicide so there is a bit of a feedback loop. As far as I know they still haven’t found a way to test for it in living people but the Boston University (I think) has made some breakthroughs.

    My point is the conclusions from football are drawn from big dudes who can literally create collisions on par with car crashes. It’s not really comparable to some random dude who plays Rocket League.

    On top of that I want you to do an experiment for me if you are willing. Lay down on your back and have someone you know poke your forehead. Doesn’t have to be super hard. See how long can last before it feels like you are 1) being punched and 2) it hurts too much for you to continue. You can do this without suffering brain damage and the punching your head concept is similar. It’s going to start hurting really bad before you can do any significant damage.

    That’s not how stereotypes work. If you keep making exceptions eventually you will reach the logical conclusion that what defines a person is more than where they are from and you’ve defeated the purpose of stereotyping in the first place.

    [–] what is that one thing that all Americans would agree that foreigners are getting wrong about America? rkk2 12 points ago in AskAnAmerican

    Well you are kind of proving my point.

    If you are from Portland, California, Chicago, NYC, or any other large liberal place the stereotype is going to change from ignorant, obese, racist, gun-lover to naive, gun hating, vegan non GMO eating progressive. That can’t really both be true.

    Shocked this guy has never heard of Chance or Common.

    [–] Cut It Out Rocket League rkk2 1 points ago in CringeAnarchy

    I’m not saying it’s impossible but it would take some pretty decent will power/pain tolerance to give yourself a concussion.

    [–] what is that one thing that all Americans would agree that foreigners are getting wrong about America? rkk2 27 points ago in AskAnAmerican

    Literally any stereotype. They are pretty much wrong in general but the country is so vast and has so many sub cultures (and cultures within those cultures) that they just won’t apply.

    Non brozer here but your memes make me laugh. Is this true?

    [–] [Chelsea Janes] Nationals Announced Dusty Baker will not return as manager rkk2 2 points ago in baseball

    I know you just lost a playoffs series to the Cubs but I’ve always liked Washington. Anytime they come to town their fans are pretty cool, plus I grew up not too far from Roark.

    [–] [Chelsea Janes] Nationals Announced Dusty Baker will not return as manager rkk2 2 points ago in baseball

    Their defense and their run game is already respectable. You’d have a good argument those units are top ten in the league.

    They may have found their quarterback, and you can’t blame the receiving core on Fox.

    I don’t know if he’ll win a super bowl here, but they are trending upward since he took over.

    [–] TIL that Thomas Jefferson studied the Quran (as well as many other religious texts) and criticized Islam much as he did Christianity and Judaism. Regardless, he believed each should have equal rights in America rkk2 1 points ago * (lasted edited a day ago) in todayilearned

    You don’t really have to judge them with today’s morals though.

    The U.K. passed the Abolition of the Slave Trade Act in 1808, when Jefferson was president. Abolitionism wasn’t anything new by the time he took office, or even when the Constitution was being written.

    Which kind of begs the question, at what time can you start judging people for thinking slavery was okay, or at least not worth abolishing? Makes for an interesting thought experiment, especially if you apply the same concept to geographic location. But I doubt as much leeway would be given in that situation.

    It’s the anarchy part.

    Yeah the fact the other dudes walk away immediately is a pretty big tell.

    Too often, we judge other groups by their worst examples while judging ourselves by our best intentions

    I know this isn't a novel concept but it would be really helpful if people could step back a bit and see when they are doing this. Myself included.

    [–] Michael Jordans rookie season is better than all of kobe's seasons except for 2 rkk2 4 points ago in nba

    Okay, so where do you rank Kobe? Top five? I’m still not sure how saying he’s top ten is disrespectful.

    [–] Michael Jordans rookie season is better than all of kobe's seasons except for 2 rkk2 5 points ago in nba

    Where do you rank Kobe?

    I’m kind of confused at what you are trying to say though. Is your point that if someone said MJ was top 3 that’s shitting on him?
