Re: Antifa & neo-Nazi Ned in: "Too Many Violence?"

We can discuss our differences on that basis and maybe come to some sort of mutual understanding and respect, even if we still disagree. I don't even know where to begin with iamspen's statement. You'll have a reasonable discussion with a Nazi to find mutual understanding and respect? Yeah, you get...

Re: Antifa & neo-Nazi Ned in: "Too Many Violence?"

If we take this discussion back to its roots and simplify it a bit from there, will that help? Because I feel like if a Nazi's face has an impactful encounter with a fist, the person at fault for the punch is, in almost all cases, the Nazi simply for being a Nazi, regardless of the morality of such...

Re: Antifa & neo-Nazi Ned in: "Too Many Violence?"

Could... could we maybe get back to discussing whether violence against Nazis/White supremacists is morally justified? I still really, really don't think it is unless it's against someone who is actively being physically violent. I'm solidly in the "don't punch Nazi's unless they're being viol...

Re: Popping a Balloon

Most likely the balloon failed due to creep. Creep is when the molecules or grains of a material are sliding past each other. If enough creep happens, voids will form and failure will occur. It happens slowly, so takes some time, but the only other requirements are that 1) the temperature in degrees...

Re: sick realization: you have negative dollars

when you take out a mortgage, you're putting your labor up for collateral. What? I don't understand what you mean by "your labor". No, the house is the collateral. The bank gives you a loan on the condition that if you can't pay it, they own the house instead of you. You are the sole owne...

The bit I quoted above sounds exactly like the role the government should (and usually does) play. M...

Right. I'm not saying that putting banana peels in trees is (necessarily) a racist act.

In my experience, the attitude police officers have about general traffic laws vary wildly from city to city. I expect it's a culture within the force thing.
