Historically this was probably true.

Now Id say that this forum is heavily comprised of posters who are constantly trying to demonstrate to others how virtuous and egalitarian they are, uh oldpainless excepted.

so actual rapists then

The last couple of Wolfenstein's have been amazing "Doom-in-alternate-WW2" games but you need to put the difficulty on easy as it's so unbalanced. I didn't mind the heavy handed story. It felt correct for the setting and character. You can have both emotional pathos and cyberdogs.

Dams suck rear end. They're absolutely destroy the ecosystem both above and below the dam. They're like environmental atomic bombs. And they create reservoirs, and only bad things happen at reservoirs. Everybody knows reservoirs are bad news. Seriously, which of these sentences sounds natural to you?

"They got married down at the reservoir!"

or

"They found another torso down at the reservoir"

Yup, better burn more coal

The existence of agent provocateurs doesn't remove responsibility for burning down buildings

Also, the destruction of a small business, given the probable lack of riot insurance probably has worse long term health effects than a mid-serious injury


Edit: and don't try blaming capitalism

Nope. Sooting people trying to burn down your small personal business (not GameStop) is justified tho

Why not Gamestop? Because it's not a "small personal" business? How big does a business have to be before you think it's not worth more than a human life?

Big enough to have riot insurance and the capacity to absorb the loss of a store. In addition, GameStop contains sufficient capital that even massive damage wouldn't meaningfully hurt the group of people who own it.

Burning down a barber shop is destroying someone's ability to provide for themselves, which represent a very real impact on someones life and health

More so than shooting them dead?

The thing about threatening to shoot someone is that they normally leave rather than pressing the issue. Besides, when you're the aggressor you're always second priority

Edit: you are, if course obligated to use the minimal possible force, and a threat display is better than actual violence

My dude, if you have not watched the videos of the police shootings, you should.

The actions of the police are irrelevant. I support the protestors, but that doesn't include destroying people's ability to feed themselves.

I'm also not supporting any given example of looters being shot, if that is what you are referring to.

Ok so you don't support actual people being shot, only hypothetical people. Hypothetical people in a hypothetical scenario. A hypothetical scenario which, to the best of your knowledge, has never happened. Because if it had ever happened you could point to it and say "Yes, this man's life was worth less than that store, and I'm glad he was killed"

Great.

It's hardly unusual, and I'm sure it happened during these riots. Your wounded attitude about not being allowed to burn something is really gross by the way.

If it's so not unusual a simple google search should bring up a person who you believe deserved to die. You could do that, find an example, post it here, clearly and explicitly say "this man, whose name is _____ ________, deserved to die for destroying a store" and then we could argue about whether or not that person's life had greater value than a store.

The unnamed looter who burnt down that guys sports bar deserved to die, if he continually escalated in violence against someone clearly intent on protecting their property.

In that case he was covered by crowdfunding, but we all know that's hit and miss.

Your local public park has free weights and a squat rack?

My old city has fitness trails with outdoor Smith machines. They're great to walk past hungover

there's no good reason for smith machines to exist, and they just take up space in decent gyms that could be occupied by more squat racks

also i really loving miss my gym

Yeah but you can't really leave free weights lying around a park

how do you weight the smith machine without plates though?

They're captive in the machine and you use a rod to select the weight you want. You'd have to go at it with a wrench to get them out

Did this show just miraculously get good somehow? I remember watching when it first came out and it was absolute garbage with dumb gimmick characters like the fish and the annoying alien guy

Maybe you just don't like good things?
