POETV watches people make stuff: Buster Sword is built.

Yeah, I noticed that after I posted. I remain skeptical - he was hitting a different sword, and we only have his word for it that the tang welding was the same - but holy shit the flaming sword while standing on a car. I think I understand what meme sees in this sloppy bear.

Either TPB or Netflix for me. My friend lets me use his HBOgo account, and between those three sources, I'm more than covered for everything TV-related.

I have never subscribed to cable my entire adult life, and I do not miss it at all.

So I was about to complain about the complete lack of a tang; how this was a rookie mistake and how it would absolutely ruin any chance of using a sword like this, impractical even under the best of circumstances, in an actual sword battle. But I skipped around to see how he attaches the blade to the hilt, and at 29:50 or so he claims he'll do a video addressing these very concerns. Does anyone know if and where this followup video was posted?

MADE IN THE USA: Child Labor & Tobacco
05/16/14, 18:55

Oho, now who's trolling?!

But damn, I wish I could endorse this! Officially, I mean. Tobacco lobbyists get paid obscene amounts of money. Which raises another scenario: what about employing children, not as field-hands, but as shills for tobacco companies? Would that be OK?

This would not be without precedent; employing children as shills already happens in other contexts. There are plenty of children well under the age of "informed consent" who nonetheless labour away as child actors. From famous movie stars clear on down to child-victims who get interviewed in anti-tobacco documentaries, this is all labour, is it not? These children all have jobs, they all get paid, they all get exploited, yet no one ever complains about that, do they? You make sure their hours are reasonable and that they have access to schooling, and hey, kid has a job, cool! Obviously, child labour, in and of itself, is NOT the ultimate problem here.

I'm inclined to agree with you, although I'd raise the stakes and say that "informed consent" is a mystery to pretty much everyone.

Anyway, I'm finishing up a painting inspired by Bob's Burgers (which is, incidentally, a show that glorifies child labour) and then I gotta do some coloring/inking for a friend of mine (he's a legitimately awesome artist, and I have no idea why he wants a shmuck like me to help him out), but maybe next week? It would go faster if I were allowed to employ children...!

Also, forgive me if this is a stupid question, but how does "informed consent" relate to prohibitions on underage driving? I can see how it relates to prohibitions on underage sex, and I guess I can sort of see how it relates to prohibitions on underage smoking (although really, with the amount of anti-drug propaganda shoveled at children, I'd think that smoking would be one of the few issues they WERE informed about). I cannot, however, see at a glance why informed consent would be relevant to driving.

Mr Wildcat - OK. Let's assume that this should apply to a child's economic freedom. If a child cannot choose what to do with his or her own body, then who can?

Usually, the argument would be, the parents. This is, after all the basis of all family life, clear on back to our first primordial ancestors; children can not choose for themselves, so their parents must guide them. Alright, but what if the parents decide they want junior to work in the fields?

We might also say, it is the state. The state controls children, the state decides what they can and can not do until they reach an age at which their social betters deem them fit enough to make their own choices in life. But the "informed consent" doctrine does not tell us what the state should or should not allow! All it does is attempt to justify the idea of law and establish the state's moral right to impose regulations upon the young. *It does not tell us anything about what these regulations should be.*

In order to figure out what limits society should be imposing on children, we have to look deeper than simply establishing that such limits could ethically exist.

And meme, I am not defending THIS instance of child labour, per say. I did watch the video (part of it, at least) and if the allegations presented herein are true, then evidently THIS job is rather dangerous and abusive.

My question is one of broader principle. Again, if child labour can be made both safe and equitable, could we not respect the individual's right to self-determination? And furthermore, even if we give child labour fair consideration and still find it lacking, does it *really* warrant the blind moral outrage it elicits from contemporary bourgeois society?
MADE IN THE USA: Child Labor & Tobacco
05/16/14, 13:34

Well OK, Mr Wildcat, but what reasons, specifically?

For example, the state does not allow children to smoke because smoking is considered to be unhealthy and dangerous. This would be a good argument against letting children work in coal mines or as lion tamers, but again, if child labour can be made *safe*, then the paternal argument about health risks is no longer relevant. Children may not be allowed to smoke or clean chimneys, OK granted, but could they not still work, say, as bank tellers, or as photo copyists?

I think the most important question to ask is: what exactly constitutes "abuse"? Child labour is, rightly or wrongly, considered one of the worst possible things on earth, by many individuals here in the West. Yet this revulsion towards child labour is a very new idea, barely more than a century old, and even today it is hardly universal, being confined mainly to the hyper-industrial West, and imposed (without much success) on the colonized Third World.

I think the key thing to understand about child labour is why our anti-labour laws were thought necessary in the first place, and where our modern moral outrage over child labour first came from. It seems to have been a rather understandable reaction against the horrendous conditions of many Victorian child-employing industries, combined with Christian ideas about the innocence of children, and the (arguably disingenuous) campaigns of early supporters of compulsory education, who thought childhood should be a time of indoctrination into the values of citizenship, as defined by the nation, and for developing the more specialized skill sets which would come in handy for future factory workers (such as learning to shut up and do meaningless rote busiwork, for a specifically appointed block of time, day in, day out, all year long).

Of course, this raises the question: if child labour can be made safe and equitable, then is granting economic self-determination to a child who wishes to work, really an inconsiderable proposition?

So what's the tobacco industry's response to this? Does this apply to ALL tobacco companies, or only a few? And are there any neutral sources who can confirm or deny the various allegations raised in this video?

Oh god, don't even get me started on plot! I just finished Bioshock Infinite, and I am so pissed at the "games should have plot" meme right now that I can barely think straight.

I get railroaded into ten tedious hours of walking down linear hallways, listening to some angsty girl spout exposition, no stealth no puzzles no roleplaying and like one easy fight every twenty minutes if I'm lucky, just so some asshat game designer with a film degree could BLOW MY MIND with that stupidass ending?!?! NO. NO. FUCK YOU, BIOSHOCK, AND FUCK YOU, PLOT.

Plot is for Ponies, not for games!!!!

It's actually like a mashup of four or five of their songs. I'm not really a fan of SoaD myself, but I could see why people liked them. They were one of the better "radio" bands when I was a kid, and one of the few actually tolerable numetal acts. Disturbed just plain sucked, but SoaD was OK. And Weird Al addressed the Smells Like Nirvana thing at one point. I don't remember verbatim what he said, but apparently Kurt was really happy with the song, touched even, and the general impression was that Kurt would have wanted the song played in his memory.

I could totally see that. If Weird Al spoofs you, you know you've made it. If Weird Al ever made a song about me, I'd be totally honored, and I'd want it played in my memory, too.

It's a joke about a hard rock band that hasn't been relevant for nearly a decade. The joke is that all of their songs sound like this (they do).

05/15/14, 17:25

Yeah, that's another thing. Manhunt was far too "moral" (in a Dexter sort of way) to be a satisfying murder simulator. You're just killing gang members and rapists, bad guys who "deserve it", you know, like you do in every other video game.

That, to me, makes the hook both less interesting - can't take the 3dgy premise seriously with a "good guy" copout - and, ironically, makes it even more sociopathic - because we're encouraged to root FOR the snuff film killer, like he's some kind of twisted agent of justice, rather than making your character into an amusingly ghoulish cartoon, like Freddy Kreuger or Godzilla. Self-righteous fascism is much more evil than self-aware sadism.

Hey fluffy, this is kind of a weird question, but you remember that guy you used to work with? The one who fucked his dog and uploaded all the photos to a company computer? Do you remember what his name was? He came up in conversation at work the other day, but I can't for the life of me remember what he was called.
