This is pure anecdote, but for me definitely. When I’m under 65kg it becomes psychologically much harder for me. At that point I just switch to exercise and focus on recomposition rather than weight loss.

I believe the joke is fact that sign language involves the use of hands and the word "handy" has "hand" within it. It's pretty low effort - but that is why we love prequel memes.

Hmm. Depends on the vote, first, and then sometimes it may be up to countries to make it real or not. Some of the EU regulations can be enforced, some others are guidance.

Technically EU regulations are defacto enforced in national courts and European courts. It’s directives which need to be implemented at state level.

Sorry, in my jurisdiction the burden of proof shifts when a defence is offered by the accused in criminal courts and the standard of proof reduces to below a preponderance of the evidence - proving a reasonable doubt. Do you hold any qualifications or are you just armchair lawyering?

what jurisdiction is that?

Yeah but then legal damages would probably be nominal, like $1 or something. He should get his licence suspended but I don't see how the patient will win much from a suit.

Being informed that a professional battered and mutilated you while you were unconscious and had entrusted yourself into their care could be seen spun as a shock induced psychiatric injuria.

Nervous shock upon being informed and punitive damages maybe?

I didn't see any mention of the first amendment, which is odd. Any law purporting to restrict what can occur in a video game is going to run headlong into that.

I guess that is why the title is "should" rather than "could"/"Is".

They appear to be engaging with the idea normatively.

But you are correct.

I have unsubscribed from that sub, so I suppose I've done all I can do as a mere user. And I'm well aware that mods pretty much rule by fiat and whim in their particular subs, posting rules notwithstanding. One would think however that Reddit itself would have rules governing the posting of obviously fake news in news subreddits. But apparently they don't.

see more

I understand your frustration, however I would rather we all migrated to a new news subreddits. Giving that control to the admins is just shifting control to another, less accountable, anonymous body. I'd rather not access my news after it had been filtered by either of those groups.

Original Poster1 point · 1 year ago

Or I could just raise my skepticism shields while participating here and get my news from reputable sources (i.e., nothing within Reddit) from now on. Because at least in some news subreddits, the inmates certainly seem to have free run of the asylum.

I'm getting off the topic of moderation now but I feel that if you approach news on Reddit with your wits about you it is one of the more balanced sites to get news. If you accept that news will always have a personal bias then surely having thousands of people presenting news will diversify that bias, a quick skim of a variety of news subreddits will give you a feel of what a spectrum of people are thinking about current events. If we heavily moderate news subreddits then we risk losing this diversity.

The market forces which influence the news corporations have a reduced effect in a website which does not allow moderators to profit from their position.

He may have been pretending to be the nutty old harmless thing so Luke would not know who he was. Look up Obfuscating Stupidity.

The reasons for this were:

  • He didn't want to teach Luke (being wary of another Skywalker Reversal) due to Luke having similar problems to Anakin (started too late, wrong personality traits, Skywalker Curse, and excessive Midichloran count meaning that the downside of Luke falling to Dark Side was that much higher).

  • He didn't know if he could risk the info that he was Yoda the Jedi Master to fall into Luke's hands yet.

  • Luke not knowing who he was helped him test Luke by observing Luke in "natural" state (e.g. NOT the state of Luke talking to great Jedi Master).

In addition, that behavior was testing Luke (e.g. would he react with violence to stealing of flashlight or food? How would he react to having his patience tested by seeing this nutcase when he's in a rush to find Jedi Master?).

This is not just a logical speculation, but is confirmed in C-Canon:

Yoda had also given Luke a hard time at that encounter. It had been a test of Luke's patience and of his treatment of strangers. And Luke had flunked it. Rather miserably. (Dark Force Rising, Timothy Zahn) Also, as far as behaving in weird manner, it's a standard archetype/trope for a Quirky Weird Wise Wizard Mentor.


At the end of Revenge of the Sith, Obi-Wan Kenobi defeats Vader and cuts off most of his biological limbs. Since then, he's basically been on life support; he's more "machine than man."

Given Vader's physical trauma, damaged body and his previous defeat, how can Vader be so confident of beating Obi-Wan in another duel?

Original Poster18 points · 3 years ago

Except from 'A New Hope' 1997 to add context:

Ben makes a sudden lunge at the huge warrior but is checked by a lightning movement of The Sith. A masterful slash stroke by Vader is blocked by the old Jedi. Another of the Jedi's blows is blocked, then countered. Ben moves around the Dark Lord and starts backing into the massive starship hangar. The two powerful warriors stand motionless for a few moments with laser swords locked in mid-air, creating a low buzzing sound.

Vader: Your powers are weak, old man.


One concept that emerged from Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords was that each Lord of the Sith has a specialty, sort of. The three lords who comprised the Dark Triumvirate had appropriate descriptors, such as Darth Sion, Lord of Pain; Darth Nihilus, Lord of Hunger; Darth Traya, Lord of Betrayal. Extending this idea out, what epithets would be appropriate for some other Sith Lords we know? Darth Maul, Lord of Hate? Darth Tyranus, Lord of Pride? Darth Vader, Lord of Guilt? Darth Sidious, Lord of...I dunno. Corruption? What are some other ideas in this same vein?

I think this is an interesting topic because really, the phenomenon (crowd funding) has been around for years--collecting money at church for someone, jars of change on business counters for a local child with a disease, etc.--but now it has a name, and the ability to reach a much broader audience through electronic media.

I also see a difference between something of a business nature, like a tech start-up or funding a movie, and something more personal, like medical treatment or summer camp funds for a specific person. For me school fundraisers fall more towards the business side, at least the ones that are organized by the school and benefit a large group of students, like the band or the class of 2015 or whatever.

The business ventures bother me less. I may or may not contribute, but they don't really offend me or make me uncomfortable inherently. They are basically advertising for a business or institution.

The personal ones make me a little uncomfortable. I don't know why. I feel for people who are in a tight spot, and I know for some asking people for help is really difficult and just indicates the desperation of their situation. I guess I find it strange to receive a request for help from someone I really don't know, which is made easier by social media--it is a weird intersection between donating to a charity (which I do already, to charities whose policies I'm comfortable with) and giving money to a friend (which I might if I knew them well). At a certain point, if the cause becomes big enough, uncomfortable questions get asked about where the money is going or how the people are behaving otherwise.

I guess overall I don't find it rude to ask, as long as you graciously accept people's decline. And, one should avoid being rude in the approach, like really laying on the guilt or violating a community's standards.

Using the advanced search options you can filter into find submissions by a certain user. However there is no similar feature for comments, it is also not possible not search user history.

I advise you use the 'save' function if you want to keep an eye on a thread/comment from now on.
