Now that she corrected it, but didn't make a note, your comment makes it look like you are trying to tell her "their's" is the correct way to spell it.

How is that racist? And I'm missing what you mean by "this submission, not the post". The post is the submission.

Ok, I guess I mean this topic/thread instead of the comment I replied to. And if you don't see how it's racist, I guess I'm taking this too seriously. But this is today and that was yesterday and I still think that if you say that Mexicans only serve good food on paper plates because of some reason you're racist.

Oh, weird. I didn't look at it that way at all. I hear people say things like "it's not real Texas barbecue if it's served with a knife and fork" or "real Chinese Food isn't served in a paper carton" and I don't think any of those are racist. We aren't saying anything about Mexicans, we are talking about restaurant styles. I think it's perfectly reasonable to say that the best Mexican food is typically served a certain way.

I personally disagree with editing to remove these elements, they are historically significant and a good learning tool. Put a new introduction explaining the society at the time, why these jokes were considered appropriate for children at the time, and how we have grown since then. Kids aren’t idiots, and this could be a powerful tool to tamp down the resurgence of racial strife we are seeing. Whitewashing history doesn’t change what happened then, but it damn sure makes it easier for ignorant jerks to point back and say nothing was wrong then, “the civil war wasn’t about slavery, most southerners didn’t own slaves, it was about states rights, etc.” People in the 50’s smoked, editing out them smoking in movies doesn’t change the fact that a lot of them died of lung cancer, it makes an inconvenient truth easier to ignore.

I don't know if you've raised any little kids, but when they watch something over and over, the scenes really do get imprinted in their heads. Long before many of the things they watch make complete sense to them, they've made a permanent impression. I agree that we shouldn't "whitewash" history, but we should also be responsible about how we introduce our children to concepts like these. I'm not going to show a scene to my young children that shows a caricature of an offensive racial stereotype, until I'm damn well sure they're ready to fully grasp the significance of what it is and why it's wrong.

The unedited versions will always be available. They can create versions without those scenes, but the originals will never cease to exist. When they are ready for that lesson, I will show the originals to my kids. I think that if they first watch the edited versions over and over again as a child, when they do eventually see the original scenes, the significance will be greater. It will be a gut punch to see those images inserted in the "innocent" movies they know by heart. You can then make them understand why those scenes existed, and why we live in a time where those views shouldn't exist anymore.

Except the original versions aren’t always available, try to find an original version of Star Wars, it doesn’t exist anymore because George Lucas decided it wasn’t his “actual vision” and destroyed the original negatives. I watched every single one of these Disney movies and I’m not out burning crosses. I doubt without context that kids would even pick up on these situations being racially stereotypical, and if that’s something you’re concerned about, don’t let your kid watch it. My point is less about protecting kids (they’re resilient bastards, they’ll be fine) and more about preserving art and artifacts for future generations to be able to appreciate and analyze to get an idea of the history of a culture. The Victorians used to paint leaves over nudity in classical paintings to “protect the children”, defacing priceless and irreplaceable masterpieces. Don’t place modern morality on history, it’s irresponsible and stupid, you can’t change the past, but you can damn well learn from it.

You can absolutely watch an original version of Star Wars. And "it doesn’t exist anymore because George Lucas decided it wasn’t his “actual vision” and destroyed the original negatives" is quite a misrepresentation of what actually occurred.

George Lucas has said that the original cuts no longer exist, and that they were effectively destroyed during the cleanup for the Special Editions. Film doesn't hold up well over time, and they likely weren't improved by being taken out of their temperature controlled environment, cleaned up, and scanned. The films (especially Episode IV) were in terrible condition, and would likely not exist at all any more if not for the work done preserving and restoring them for the Special Edition creation.

The scans are really the next best thing, in fact, they're actually better. They'll last forever compared to cellulose based film, and the remastering gives you a better idea of what they originally looked like, in a quality that you could not get playing a degraded negative. So even if the negatives can't be viewed, the data contained within is safely archived in a less volatile format.

You can watch any number of digitally remastered versions of the originals, including the official original version, released on DVD as bonus material in the 2004 box set. (I would recommend Harmy's Despecialized edition though, if you're looking for the best quality viewing of the originals.)

The point here is that much like the Original Trilogy, the Disney classics are all digitally on record, and will not poof out of existence simply because edited versions happen. If your concern is art preservation, fear not. In this age of digital media, nothing disappears, even 10 year old tweets, apparently.

If the edited versions were able to somehow erase the Disney originals, I would agree with you. But since they don't, I am all for having a version with the scenes removed so that I can show the movies to my very young kids without introducing them to the offensive materiel. Yes, kids are resilient, but they are also hugely impressionable. Through no fault of her own, my 4 year old would find the racial caricatures hilarious, and wouldn't understand why they aren't. I'll wait till she's ready to navigate the topic before I show her those scenes. I don't mind showing her an edited version because I'm not particularly concerned about "preserving the integrity of the original works" when my preschooler wants to watch Peter Pan.

That wasn't what you said though. You said one was easier to be proud of than the other. My point is that it's easy to naturally be proud of something that you worked for, but you actually have to do some mental gymnastics to be proud of something that was given to you.

The most recent time I had asked, I had said "glass" and just got a look of "are you retarded" but the person I was with explained what I wanted. I still didnt get anything but I think when people say "glass" they mean like a tall one. Not the smaller ones. Probably where the look came from. Thanks for the suggestion to talk with the waiter about it :) I appreciate it.

Yeah man, just level with them. It's totally refreshing to have someone say "hey, I don't really know what I'm doing here, so I'm going to ask you for your expertise". It'll end up being a better experience for you in the long run anyway. Too often young people order what they think sounds right, and they spend years drinking something they don't really like, when they could have been introduced to drinking by someone knowledgeable who would have helped them figure out what suits them best.

I will not allow you to invalidate my feelings. Who the hell are you ? Nothing was going on here and you chose to insert your self into this . Now you are back tracking . One second you aren’t bashing me but I shouldn’t walk into the kitchen if I can’t handle the heat . It has become obvious that you are nothing but a troll looking for attention.

I had already learnt from my mistake which was why the comment was deleted but instead you who never actually saw the original comment chose to insert your self into this.

You are a troll and I’m not entertaining your nonsense

Hey, I would just stop responding. The more you respond, the more they are going to pile up on you. In this sub in particular, people can be extremely protective of each other, so it's not worth going to blows with the crowd. Personally, I would have apologized directly to OP, and let anyone else's comments roll off my back.

It looks to me like you nicked the coating on the lens. Verify that this is a particle by looking across the lens. If it sticks up its a particle if not you have nicked the coating. It may still be a nick in the coating that has piled up in one spot.

If the coating is damaged not much you can do.

If it is a particle use a lens cleaning paper and add a drop of an approved wetting agent and gently wipe it in circles to remove it. if that does not get it I would take the lens in for a service cleaning.

It actually might be a little worse, because there's not even anything NASCAR related about the photo. There's really nothing about this photo that relates to this sub at all, besides a title constructed to wedge the post in here. I get that this sub is kind of a community, but this is really blurring the line between Reddit and Facebook.
