|Ruby's Guns: Criminals don't want you to buy guns |
Who wants to outlaw guns?
All I want is for conservatives to admit that, like cigarettes, guns kill lots of people. It's just a price that they're willing to pay.
|ZoNATION: False Concern: Missing the Racism Forest for the Trees|
5:23 - "American blacks are encouraged to dress and behave a certain way to affirm their blackness, and it just so happens that such an image looks like someone you can't trust."
Haha. I listened to this bit about 10 times. It's still just barely sinking in
|When Did You Choose To Be Straight?|
What kind of environmental stimuli cause gayness?
|Home Surgery: Giant Pilar Cyst Removal|
Is it just me, or is there a really strong viral marketing vibe coming from this thing with the front and center beer labels and all?
And it has the "everyone is drinking but nobody is drunk" thing going on.
But maybe thats just the alcoholism talking.
|'Demand a plan'|
Ahh it cut off most of my comment
"Respondents with firearms in the home were no more likely to report suicidal thoughts, plans or attempts, but if they had a suicidal plan, it was much more likely to involve firearms. The higher rates of suicide among gun owners and their families cannot be explained by higher rates of suicidal behavior, but can be explained by easy access to a gun"
Anyway, you get the gist of it. Having more guns around is statistically correlated with more dead bodies showing up. Assault victims with a gun are more likely to get shot, so on and so forth.
|'Demand a plan'|
Okay Gmork, I'll bite.
"Risk Factors for Femicide in Abusive Relationships: Results From a Multisite Case Control Study"
"Preincident risk factors associated in multivariate analyses with increased risk of intimate partner femicide included perpetrator’s access to a gun"
"Although our study cannot determine causation, we found that in areas where household firearm ownership rates were higher, a disproportionately large number of people died from homicide."
"Results. After adjustment, individuals in possession of a gun were 4.46 (P
|'Demand a plan'|
I love the "criminals will get guns anyway on the black market" bullshit.
What do people mean by "criminals" anyway? Walter White and Tony Soprano? Yeah, they'll get guns anyway. How about the skeevy douchebags who carry guns with them when they go out on a Saturday night? How about alcoholic couple four apartments down from me who scream at each other at 1am?
Also, the rate of suicide is far greater than the rate of homicide in this country, and guns are the most reliable method of suicide available by a massive margin.
Will they buy guns on the black market instead? Find another way to do it anyway? Why install a suicide net on the golden gate bridge then if it's so hopeless?
Right. We need to stop framing this issue around Anders Breivik and the bad guys that Arnold shot up in the 80's and start being realistic.
|Alex Jones - Obama Faked His Tears to Come After Your Guns|
The greatest trick the American gun lobby ever pulled was to convince the public that more citizen gun ownership = fewer successful homicides.
Well boys, the numbers are in and surprise surprise, it's the opposite.
The Harvard School of Public Health webpage is a great place to start looking for more information.
I'll sum up what they've found for you.
Across high-income nations, more guns = more homicide. Across US states, more guns = more homicide. Across U.S. regions, more guns = more suicide. Guns in the home are used more often to intimidate intimates than to thwart crime.
|terrible pick up lines|
You're a fool, because this dog is obviously british.
|New New Dark Knight Rises trailer 3|
Maybe you guys can solve a batman problem for me. I'm an on-again/off-again comic book fan, and my rudimentary understanding of batman is that he doesn't use guns for moral reasons.
However, he seems to use cars and airplanes with missile launchers on them. Whats the rub, pals?
|Evolve Your Mind|
He makes it sound like evolution is the same thing as the x-men.
One day, a kid will be born who can shoot laser beams from his eyes. He'll have a bunch of kids, and 1000 years down the line everyone will be able to shoot laser beams from their eyes! Except then the ones with reflective mirror skin and super strength will take over.
|Mass Effect 3 - Blasto 6|
I'd like to finish this game and see the ending, but honestly it's boring mickey mouse bullshit interspersed with irrelevant elongated cutscenes and I haven't been able to force myself to finish it over a FTP MP game like Tribes: Ascend.
|Randy Savage: The Ra Ra Show|
Thank god for the internet, so things like this can be preserved for future generations for all eternity.
|Tom Martin sues LSE's Gender Institute for teaching sexism |
5:05 in his "Short A to Z list of discrimination and inequalities faced by men"
Boxing - Men must fight 12x3 minute rounds. Women only 10x2.
These next two together are delicious.
Driving - Men are more often the family chauffeur than women.
Driving skills - men denigrated, but per mile, safer drivers than women.
|a quirky girl with glasses and an accent wants to tell you about rubbing things|
Nobodys gonna say it?
|Jon Ronson's Escape and Control - Patrice Wilson follow-up|
And here I mistakenly thought this Patrice Wilson guy made horrible music because he was lazy and a shady character that was trying to fleece rich parents out of their money.
But THIS... this is entering Wesley Willis territory.
|Nerd Rage Over Card Game|
Yeah, that's youtuber Boogie2988, who went viral making that "Fat guy nerd rages about WoW" video. He's doing a character.
|Girls are bad at things|
Is it abnormal to get very uncomfortable watching peoples heads hitting concrete or similarly hard surfaces?
