National Poetry Slam 2014 Finals: 'Friend Zone'

It's got me reading up on PIE and I'm discovering fun stuff as I go along. Guess which modern language is closest to the original Proto Indo European? Go ahead and guess. And you're correct, that language is Lithuanian!

According to an awful lot of movies and TV, the key to winning over a woman who initially isn't interested is, of all things, persistence. Keep at it, don't let up, sooner or later she'll decide to let down that wall she has inexplicably been keeping between herself and you.

... What in the hell. WHAT IN THE HELL.

I have to say, I've heard enough scary stories to realize there are men who do go off the deep end, and you can't always tell. The tale that sticks with me the most is the woman who kept asking to be let out of the car because the driver had gone into an angry rant about women always misleading men -- sweet baby Jesus, I am so grateful I've never been on the receiving end of that sort of insanity, where you don't know which of a dozen violent ends could be looming.

Seriously, it's something that, as a guy, I never really have to worry about: the pleasant person next to me isn't going to suddenly lose his mind and turn into an animal completely indifferent to boundaries and my rights as a person. How do you even function in society where that can happen (infrequently, yet all too often)?

BTW I answered your linguistic history question over on that Bryan Fischer video; linguistics has a pretty definitive model of how language evolved and spread across Europe and Asia, Google for "Proto Indo European" to learn more about the language families most familiar to us.

Why do I get the sense that, at least on this video, it's less about having legitimate complaints about "nice guys" and more about finding some group to hold in contempt without even the tiniest mote of empathy?

I still stay there's a spectrum of "nice guys", and while some exist who are exactly as described by these poetry slammers, a great many more have simply bought into what every TV show, movie, and afterschool special since forever have taught them: be yourself and people (including women) will see your inner charm and like you for you. When it doesn't work out quite like that for any number of reasons, they misdiagnose the problem. That doesn't make them monsters, just misinformed more than anything.

Now those who plunge straight into misogyny, that's another matter. But most of them are following a bad map, getting lost, and are frustrated that every step forward seems to get them more lost. A better set of directions is more likely to do some good than scorn.

Plus, there are probably a great many of them who have self-esteem issues -- imagine that, being socially inept tracking with feeling like shit -- and I bet most of them don't want to get laid, so much as receive validation that they are worth some other person's time. Not the greatest reason to look for a relationship, but again, it doesn't make them monsters either.

Nevertheless, since we can't rip on the gays any longer, we've got to find a new target for our collective abuse, amirite?

Aw c'mon -- killing animals twice your size isn't cooler than being afraid of fish? Defeating Nazis with nothing more than a good throwing arm and a sense of irony isn't cooler than, well, whatever the hell Aqualad does?

As for which Titans are cool, I seem to recall the episode where they all -- including Raven -- dressed up as Robin while he was away. I forget what exactly he was doing, but there are probably a dozen Balkan war criminals in the hospital as a result.

Personally, I'm content with the notion that it's a word white folks simply shouldn't use, and if I want to blame anyone I should blame racists. Yeah there are nuances, and there are intentions, but there are also the wishes of those who are hearing me say it too.

If black folks want to reclaim a word that was used as a slur against them, I support them best by not using the word myself. "They done took mah word away!!!" should not be high on my list of grievances.

There's a "clip show" tag for a reason (though I think there are one or two new segments in there, maybe).
Bryan Fischer uses the tower of Babel myth as evidence of gods wrath upon America

betabox - dude is clearly saying that he doesn't buy the Tower of Babel story, but doesn't know enough to say why it couldn't be true. You could have told him about Proto-Indo-European and set a guy straight.

Ever seen the movie "Highlander"? The Kurgan people were a real thing, and what's more, they are most likely the carriers of the language whose successors came to dominate Eurasia from Ireland all the way to India. We speak of the "Proto-Indo-European" language as that (hypothesized) oriignal language that spawned the rest.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proto-Indo-European_language

Here's a table of words that are eerily similar across a wide variety of languages; notice that they tend to be words for concepts core to the human experience, like numbers or family members.

Congress was never this bad in the past; even exiting Republicans lament how insane things have gotten (without ever owning up to their own complicity of course). Here's Olympia Snowe complaining about the impasse in Washington:

http://www.politico.com/story/2013/05/olympia-snowe-interview-91775.html

But the part she leaves out is, from 2009-2011, there is a great deal of work that was blocked in the Senate because the Republicans were filibustering everything they possibly could -- which had never been standard operating procedure before -- and Democrats were coming up one vote short (the public option being the single most visible example). In other words, all it required was one principled Republican to actually refuse to give in to the hyper-partisanship that Olympia decries. Where the hell was this principled Olympia Snowe when the country needed her?

So fuck her, she is a talking pile of shit, as close to literally as is humanly possible. And while I sincerely doubt she reads this site, I like to hope she does, because she doesn't deserve a single day where she isn't haunted by her hypocrisy.

Think of Batman Pooping Snakes
03/15/15, 19:05

More thoughts. Back in 1988 or so I had a text-to-speech program, you could feed it a string like "I ate a fried egg" and it would try to pronounce it. Now you and me, when we hear a sentence like the above, we hear breaks between the words, but in reality that's only after our brain has edited what we've heard. To get the computer to say that sentence correctly, it was necessary to enter the string more like "I ay ta fry degg" because that's where the breaks actually fall.

My point: that language-parsing part of our brains is at work all the time, cleaning up what we hear; we don't even know it's working, and it's damn near impossible to shut off. Otherwise, Batman would not be pooping snakes, or at least we would never think of it.

NOT COOL DUDE. If you're going to play the Brown Note, you really ought to warn people.

Anyone else shit themselves uncontrollably listening to this? No judgment.

Our involvement in Libya was because the UNSC was expecting Kaddafi to retaliate against the civilian population in their civil war; the UNSC vote was 11-0 for airstrikes to prevent massacres. Bitch about Obama and the UN if you like, but understand it was either that or Kaddafi massacring civilians, and yes this really is a matter of supporting the one or the other.
