    Libspero got a reaction from Carl Fimble in The Labour party hates Jews   
    He wasn't asked to condemn them by name..  plus,  you have to remember that names are pretty meaningless when they are used as labels.
    Whenever Israel carry out a bombing raid or start shooting protesters they do have a habit of jumping behind the defence of "yeah,  but them was all Hamas,  you know,  they're terrorists"  while they're pulling out the corpses of women and children.
    I'm not saying they aren't a real terrorist organisation,  but in the context of how the label is broadly applied I wouldn't say it is unreasonable to just call out the violence on both sides.  That's not crazy left or far right..  just pragmatic common sense IMHO.

    Sorry to hear that @ILikeCake
    You're bound to feel crap about it for all sorts of reasons. Easy to say I know but try not to let it consume you. Get angry, feel cheesed off, have a rant and then try to put it behind you as one of these crummy things that happens in our breaking down society.

    Libspero got a reaction from Ina in Cunts Who Play Music Super Loud In Public   
    Too many people on the planet.
    In isolation there was nothing wrong with what he was doing.    Nothing wrong with what you (and everybody else) was doing either.  The problem is what he wanted to do got in  the way with what you wanted to do. And vise versa.
    He was inconsiderate of what other people wanted to do. But then I guess nobody's right specifically trumps anyone else's.   He was probably a kid and we're all a bunch of miserable old gits now

    Yes,   they probably should have been more guarded.  But I suspect they are just humouring a crazy guy and going along with him so as not to be rude or hurt his feelings.  Then bang..  the whole thing is televised and it makes them look like they really believe it.  But in a career threatening way because the whole thing is seen out of context.   I guess to me it just seems more like bullying than comedy.  I could just be getting boring in my old age.

    Libspero got a reaction from Carl Fimble in Alaska Airlines Horizon Air Q400 stolen by mechanic, took-off, chased by F-16's and now seen as smoke rising from an island near Seattle   
    I think he would have approved of that..  I could only find this one though:

    I used to enjoy Ali G when I thought it was quite clever.
    Now I see this and it just seems like Jeremy Kyle..   it is a program to make stupid/suggestible people make fools of themselves for our amusement.  A bit akin to poking the disabled kid in the school yard until they cry.
    I'm not sure if I've changed in my view of what's funny,  or if Sasha has taken some of the skill out of his performance.

    I know nothing about Rich but I can't help feel saddened by his death and think the world is a slightly worse off place than it was a few hours ago.
    Yes, what he did was incredibly stupid and dangerous but there is something that seems so wonderous, moronic and sad about his demise.

    Libspero got a reaction from null; in Count Dancula GUILTY of CAUSING MASS OFFENCE   
    Thank you for posting that..   can't 'rep' it enough.
    It is such a novelty to hear a muslim leader speaking so candidly and sensibly.  If more muslims adopted his attitude and values I think we would have a fraction of the religious/social tension we currently see in the country.   
    I hope he gets given a LOT more air time in the MSM.  He is essentially proof that muslims are not the problem in this country,  political correctness is.
    Edit to add:  Similarly (and on topic) the same applies to the count dancula fiasco. The court aren't preventing anti-semitism,  they are encouraging it.   To any sensible thinking person our freedom to speak freely is being attacked..  this court case makes it appear that jewish people (as a group) are hyper sensitive to even the most silly jokes and are calling for the criminalisation of anyone who dares joke about them.   I sure the reality is that most jewish people are just as sensible and liberal minded as the rest of us,  it is just a handful of their leaders and a few do-gooders in government making the rest of them look bad and stoking racial tensions.

    If you are male then I think 20% would be a more accurate figure.

    Libspero reacted to dgul in Wheels coming off HE bubble   
    And that works?
    He's saying something like - I like what I do, and if you do what I did you'll be like me.
    This is a logical fallacy.  Surely very few people who do what he did (take degree in marine biology) end up like him.  They're selling dreams to dreamers -- it should be much more highly regulated.
    [eg, the end of that video should say something like 'there are 5,000 professional marine biologists in the UK and no apparent need for any more.  Natural turnover gives a requirement for 250 new marine biologists each year.  5,000 students per year study marine biology in the UK.']
