It’s so there isn’t splash back on your bum after the poop drops and so it doesn’t make a noise so you make a nice soft bed for it with toilet paper. I do this at home, if you don’t do it what kind of animal are you because you’re not human

The fresh toilet water is much cleaner than what's actually squeezing out of your anus and leaving the sign of its passage. A little splash of water on there afterward is probably only improving the situation.

Not if there are small bits of shit in the bowl left over from the prior user which have turned the bowl into muddy shit water (maybe not obviously visible). Think about that next time you get splash back in a public toilet.

I guess if we expand our definition of 'reason' then yeah you're right. But that would render the saying kinda pointless because then people are 'reasoned' into every belief that they hold

Edit: that -> they

You have a point, but this is some part nitpicking semantics.

What he's really talking about is willful stupidity. You were not willfully stupid to believe in Santa when you were 5, you were just 5.

Stuff like this is probably why people used to worry goats were preferred vessels/forms for demonic possession and shapeshifting witches.

Not completely false, then. Good, though, ofc.

What about working/sacrificing for the benefit of others? That ain't a waste of time.

This isn't news, though, is it? I've been thinking it's common knowledge Page has been under suspicion. Even before '15. Iirc, he was under suspicion in '12.

Big signs over large store fronts yes, the letters are separate bulbs. LED signs yes, LEDs can burn out but neon signs this size are made from one single length of bulb that is bent into the shape of the letters. If one part is smashed or damaged the whole bulb will fail to light.

The only reason to have separate bulbs is if the sign is meant to flash in series which this sign obviously doesn't as its constantly on

It's just corrective trivia, you two. No need to be sarcastic in response or 'retort.'

The movie took a small creative liberty here. Movies do that.

FYI lot of sociopathic killers and rapists are drawn to law enforcement type jobs (security, police officers, military, etc.). For many it helps fulfill their desire for power and authority. Read Mindhunter. Very good.

I suspect the vast majority of sociopaths that exist never actually commit crimes that serious. Perhaps they lack the courage, or, as in your example, they find societally condoned ways to satisfy said desires.

I'm more infuriated by that doofus apparently not knowing what the hell misogyny actually means than I am by the ridiculous Hitler comparison.

I hear Guiliani is doing all of his work for Trump pro bono. Trump is being overcharged if you ask me.

see more

Giuliani's desperately attempting to ingratiate himself to Trump in one last gasp attempt to achieve political ambitions he was denied by the Republican party when he was younger.

As per usual with low intellect narcissists, Drumpf loves anyone with a big name being a sycophant to him, so he just doesn't see that Giuliani's getting senile.

Regardless, this guy/gal/kid was clearly hoping the creator would be dumb enough to show him the art without a watermark, at which point he intended all along to steal it w/o paying. He/she knew what they were doing. Not that you're saying it is, but age isn't an excuse.

The irony of your comment is that voting takes very little time to do, and yet Millennials still aren't doing it.

We can sweep the toxic Boomer element out of office any time we want. We have the numbers now. Meming on the internet isn't preventing anyone from taking half an hour to go early vote in October.

Afaik, apex predators tend to avoid fighting each other unless there's literally not enough food to go around (i.e. the town wasn't big enough for the both of them) because those battles tend to pretty Pyrrhic- even the winner suffers so much that's it's rarely ever worth it.

In other words, unless that area was specifically devoid of prey, that tiger was acting more like a combo of Omar from the Wire and Ender from Ender's game than the Hulk in...everything the Hulk is in. That tiger wasn't just thinking 'Tiger smash', he was thinking 'I need vengeance, and I need in such a way that no one ever fucks with me again'.

Lions and hyenas are both apex predators, competing with each other in their ecosystem.

Male lions kill hyenas whenever they get the chance (they'll go after the matriarch if they can), and hyenas are a constant threat to lion cubs and any weakened or otherwise vulnerable adults.

It's typically not an issue of food scarcity. The species appear to just hate each other.

That's true, but I can promise that you will never in your life see a lone hyena actively hunt a lion, vice versa, it happens all the time. Hyenas are a pest to lions so while they don't have any natural predators they are hunted down all the time, by the real apex predator of that ecosystem.

I definitely won't. Hyenas don't hunt large prey as loners.

That doesn't make them any less of an apex predator. Same faux-logic doesn't apply to wolves, for example.

It sounds like you're suggesting hyenas aren't a real apex predator, and if so that's categorically false. If anything, they're more successful than lions.

A large clan of hyenas is a significant threat to a weakened lion pride. Hyenas are much worse than pests to lions, and that's why hyena killing is often a focus for male lions.

According to Larson’s campaign manifesto, his platform as a “quasi-neoreactionary libertarian” candidate includes protecting gun ownership rights, establishing free trade and protecting “benevolent white supremacy,” as well as legalizing incestuous marriage and child pornography.

In the manifesto, Larson called Nazi leader Adolf Hitler a “white supremacist hero.” He urged Congress to repeal the Violence Against Women Act, adding, “We need to switch to a system that classifies women as property, initially of their fathers and later of their husbands.” He also showed sympathy for men who identify as involuntary celibates, or incels, suggesting it is unfair that they “are forced to pay taxes for schools, welfare, and other support for other men’s children.”

"Why doesn’t every pedo just focus on making money so they can get a pedo-wife and then either impregnate her with some fucktoys or adopt some fucktoys?” he wrote on the platform in October. “That would accommodate both those who are and aren’t into incest. And of course, the adoption process lets you pick a boy or a girl.

In “Let’s Define What Rape Is,” a 3,000-word essay posted on Nathania.org as well as other incel sites, Larson wrote: “Women are objects, to be taken care of by men like any other property, and for powerful men to insert themselves into as it pleases them, and as they believe will be in women’s own interests. In most cases, their interests are aligned, as long as the man is strong. Female sex-slaves actually get a much better deal than animals, because in most cases, they are allowed to reproduce, unlike animals raised for meat or companionship.”

How is someone like this allowed to be part of civilized society?

Maybe society isn't quite as civilized as we like to think.

The mirror test only demonstrates (in theory) self-recognition, which is associated with existential self-awareness.

I think existential self-awareness is highly overrated by the existentially self-aware.

Regardless, the mirror test only tests visual self-recognition, and for many animals -- like this leopard -- sight is far from their keenest sense. It's possible cats and dogs self-recognize via scent rather than sight.

That's a good joke, but in reality the vast majority of humans are basically average, with a small group of outliers who are super smart and a similar small group who are super dumb. Most people also think they're above average, when they're not.

There's such a thing as willfull stupidity/ignorance, a behavior which seems to be unique to humankind, and its incidence doesn't correlate with the IQ bellcurve.
