Relying on your knob type to contain children/pets/raptors seems short sighted.
Sep 24, 2013 Dirk7 commented on What Do You Think of Charles Bukowski Starring in a Scotch Ad?.
Need more good epic poetry and authentic fucking feeling in culture. If it takes a liquor ad, or a jeans ad (Walt Whitman / Levis) to do it then fine.

Why do they get away with "We'd love to help you what is your number/name/id etc" Do they have so many unresolved complaints that they have no hope of tracking it down without a number? And if so.... why are they so bad at their business?
Jul 30, 2013 Dirk7 commented on Julian Assange on the Bradley Manning Verdict.
I think that 95% of what any government does should be publicly accessible. Keeping things you do secret from your supposed bosses should require extraordinary reasons.

How much does it cost to deploy 1200 firefighters? How much are those 69 homes worth?

Forests need to burn, its what they do, the longer you keep them from burning the worse the fire is. Can we please start managing forests responsibly with controlled burns.

Modern capitalism would not be able to handle a world of stagnant growth. Without constant growth the whole system will fall apart. I'm surprised Mudede hasn't commented on this.

May 31, 2013 Dirk7 commented on Lindy West vs. Jim Norton: Are Rape Jokes Okay?.
Jim Norton destroys his own side when he mentions that comedy is about speaking truth to power. Rape victims have no power. Making jokes at their expense is not only offensive it is bad comedy. If you want to make good comedy about rape it should start with being at the expense of the rapist(s) and their enablers.

So, yes a joke involving a rape situation could potentially be 'okay' but it certainly is more of a minefield than say... how many Starbucks' are in Seattle.
May 24, 2013 Dirk7 commented on Don't Be Such a Mermaid!.
Well, perusing the gutter of urban dictionary leads to 3 main possibilities they are asking you to stop:

1. Luring sailors to a sexy watery grave.
2. A particular subset of fashion sense too nuanced for me to attempt to describe.
3. Only giving oral sex.
May 13, 2013 Dirk7 commented on But Will the Male Fans Call Themselves "Equestrionies"?.
@11 Perhaps a feeling that they don't need to be treated as human beings since they uhh are ponies? And then letting how they treat the fictional show characters bleed out into how they treat actual people?
