Sadly Caine, despite your claims there is nothing inherently racist about 'chief.'

n.
1. One who is highest in rank or authority; a leader.

2.a. A chief petty officer.
b. Nautical The chief engineer of a ship.

3. Slang A boss.
4. Heraldry The upper section of a shield.
5. The most important or valuable part.


adj.
1. Highest in rank, authority, or office.

2. Most important or influential. See Usage Note at absolute.
adv.


When I think it 'Chief' I don't' think of Indians. I think of ships and Chief Petty Officers. I think of police and the Chief of Police. I think of KP duty and being "Chief Bottle Washer" (as well as Latrine Queen). In your case Caine, I think of "Chief Asshole," as in leading, primary and/or biggest.

None of which has anything to do with any Indian blood you may have.

Also, why you have no de jure authority, as head pitchfork wielder in what passes for mob-pile-on-justice, you have de facto authority which you wield on a daily basis. And you're quite well aware of that. Even as you pretend you're just a helpless victim.

At least that's what it claims to be. It's so bad, however, that a more likely explanation is that it's been made by students from another university to take the piss out of Loughborough.

Or hey're just trying to be the new Rebecca Black. There were a lot of immitators on the wake of the "Friday" video. "We cannot be popular because we have no talent for music, maybe we can get popular by sucking!"

Rebecca does not only know what a trebuchet is, she also can exactly tell you how fast it moves, what ressources you need to build one and how many attack points it has when you fire it upon a city.

I think a worst crime is that it wasn't even funny. I'm ok with lots of bullshit as long as it's funny.

Regarding TSA at airports: I call bullshit on the whole thing. If it is meant to fend off terrorist attacks, why is it not implemented in train stations as well? Sure, you can't run a train into a building, but your average TGV carries about 1000 people at 360km/h. And there is no security check, anyone could board a fucking train with a fucking bomb in their backpack.

So, what's the catch?

It is obvious to everyone that it's a fat joke about Svan.
But obsessively trawling twitter to dredge up fat jokes about yourself doesn't quite carry the victim cred that can be generated by a single death threat, which is why they are playing up that rather tenuous angle of the tweet.

Analyzing mere pictures of a party that none of us has attended is not really very reliable, however, now that I take a closer look at the two pictures above, Shermer's body language fits the kind of guy who pushes too hard in flirting and hitting on women.

The first picture: He has his arm wrapped around her but we don't see her other hand and it seems it's dangling by her side, sandwiched between her and him. If true, it means she was not interested in "hugging him" (which would have been an implicit nod from her to escalate the level of intimacy). Also, there's a gap between Shermer and DJ and the picture doesn't look like a group photo.

The second picture: Shermer is now grabbing her very firmly and there is no way for her to get away unless she uses some level of physical force. Again, that's very consistent with a guy who hits heavily on women and who uses some level of "force" (typical examples are guys who don't let their target get away without some level of force; they hold her hand, or hold her in a tight embrace in dancing, etc.). And in this picture there is no group. There is "cover". If you look at this picture you see a couple and another guy who awkwardly stands away.

The combination of these two pictures is damning for Shermer. It shows that he had his arm wrapped around her for some time, at least long enough for two pictures in two different configurations to be taken. This in turn means that the wrapped arm was not done in a moment of "excitement" or "happiness" or any other reading that doesn't have sexual undertones. In other words, you can't say "Maybe he was happy to see her so he hugged her" or "they were just taking pictures and he was being friendly". On the other hand, I don't see any evidence that she reciprocated any of this.

So basically, I'm not rejecting any other reading of these pictures but I'm saying that the reading that is most consistent (at least in my opinion) is the one in which Shermer was heavily hitting on her against her obvious disinterest, and most likely with some level of force.


Ah, ha ha ha ha ha ha... That's your projection as you use rumor and innuendo to prove the supposed fact.

Here's the photos she posts of facebook: https://www.facebook.com/starstryder?sk=photos According to your analysis Neil DeGrasse Tyson is like that. Phil Plait is like that. All kinds of men and women I don't know from Adam are like that.

Hmmm.... Maybe something else is going on. Like a party/social occassion with some people who are touchy-feely extroverts and don't have a problem with that kind of stuff. And certain other people are NOT. And the NOT group, as they tend to do, lack both the awareness and social skills to understand it or avoid it.

Besides, Shermer prefers rabbits anyway:

Sure. What she does with her free time is not my problem - and besides, like I pointed out, I also spend my free time on videogames, and I'm no PZ Myers so I cannot #denounce her for something I do myself. I can, however, point out that her "free time" is kept artificially long by the virtue of not working and begging money for uninspired videos. And that I have a problem with, like a said a couple of times about a guy that does the same thing but on the opposite side of the room (The Amazing Atheist).

Of course, she's so lazy that she wasn't neither the first nor the more successful doing that; Anita Sarkeesian gobbled $120k for that.



Which was the point you and I both made. Had she gone to Disney World, I'd have said the same thing. Games/gaming had nothing to do with it. Being utterly lazy and flaunting it while other people support you after your 'poor me, pity-pot' begging fest is the issue.

In my book she's nothing more a low-talent, self-entitled Princess that doesn't even the grace to be circumspect regards the fact that she would rather beg for money than do anything 'beneath her station' like a dirty job. And I don't care if I 'offend her' by pointing this out, no matter who tries to concern troll me over an 'argument' I didn't make.

So...

Making a distasteful Silence of the Lambs's reference = bad, awful, death threat.

Making a distasteful Cards Against Humanity reference = good fun.

Roger that. So I'll do a CAH reference in regards to Svan, right now! The rules:

1) I'll use the cards from the actual game (from http://www.cardsagainsthumanity.com/pdf ... inGame.pdf)
2) I'll chose a black card with a feminine reference on it, and change it "Stephania Svan". The remainder text will not be modified.
3) I'll then choose 10 (ten) white cards with the answers and you guys choose the best one. Again, no changing on the text from the actual game cards.

Black card:
"Maybe she Stephany Svan's born with it. Maybe it's _______________"

White card 1:
"Child abuse."

White card 2:
"Penis envy."

White card 3:
"Smegma."

White card 4:
"The placenta."

White card 5:
"Obesity."

White card 6:
"Leprosy."

White card 7:
"Menstrual rage."

White card 8:
"A brain tumor."

White card 9:
"Man meat."

White card 10:
"Being fat and stupid."

I hope she doesn't mind, because, according to BRAYTON (2013):

It's OK. It's a quote from Cards Against Humanity. The whole point is to be horrible.


Have a nice day, Stephie.

YES! I saw this last night (incidentally it was the ever amusing and infamous @LazySavant on Twitter who shared it).
Look at the comments. Only 27 of them and one of them is from Adam Buxton (I checked the account and it's actually him!!!! *SQUEE!*).

Brilliant video. I've been singing it all morning.

Orwellia has a post up about the Columbine High School killers.

The article I’m reading in Slate is from 2004, and it’s about what the FBI ended up concluding about why Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris shot up Columbine High School. It wasn’t because they were bullied; they weren’t. Klebold was depressed and suicidal, and Harris was a psychopath.


Says she is interested in psychopathy.

You can leave it to her commentariat to read between the lines and to connect the dots.

Yes, DIAF Wowbagger is that hypocritical.

And yet a group of people wonder why we recoil in horror when one of the leaders of that group ‘jokes’ about wanting someone to die in a fire, and why we want to distance ourselves from them for endorsing such behaviour.


In addition, since when is a random Twitter user who doesn't even post on the 'Pit "one of the leaders of that group"? The 'Pit doesn't have and doesn't need leaders.

This is why I find concern trolling in the movement (especially the Pit) to be so pointless when it comes to dealing with Skepchick/FTB criticisms made by us or others. The only appropriate course of actoin for us is to 'shut up' and/or 'go die in a fire' depending on the asshole-level of the FTB/Skepchick poster.

A guy makes a fat joke and the 'ever searching for drama' FTB crowd turns it into a death threat and the 'Pit is linked. Despite the fact that the 'Pit had nothing to do with it and it's a FAT JOKE.

Great footage, the plane basically disintegrated on impact. I think I watched this on Nova on PBS years ago and the test was done in the 70's.


I seriously doubt that.

First off, I like to joke that if terrorists crash a plane into a nuclear power plant they would surely go for the cooling tower. a) it's the biggest target, b) many people seem to confuse the cooling tower with the power plant, c) the effect of doing that is basically zilch or nada. Sure, the plant would auto-shutdown and cooling would be somewhat compromised, but that's basically it as long as everybody at the site knows their shit.

I'm not aware of any experiment with F4s on real cooling towers. There were tests with ramming them into massive concrete walls and observing the damage/calculating the impact force. Here's an example:

[youtube]xM8E-CogkYE[/youtube]

The parts that produce the apparent 'pulverization' effect is mainly the fuselage. The main impact on the other hand is shelled out by the engine. At airplane speed that's a dense block of heavy metal that can go thru a lot of stuff including concrete walls. It would almost for sure go through the walls of a cooling tower because they aren't that thick as they don't have to be.

The main thing is if the reactor building would withstand an impact. If not, you'd have a release of some radioactivity really fast and, depending on the amount and type of secondary damages, maybe a catastrophic release of fission materials.

Now, the reactor buildings do have thick concrete walls but if they can withstand the damage done by a plane crash is really in doubt. Most commercial reactors today would probably withstand an F4 but not necessarily an A380. American authorities tend to be optimistic what their reactors can withstand, German authorities seem to be more pessimistic.

As for the 1970s and 9/11 style attacks, German reactors were tested then if the could withstand kamikaze like attacks from F4, but no one seems to have thought about captured commercial planes.


Ya, that was the footage. I just thought it was pretty neat to see a plane go splat, not that "the terrorists" are going to do this. The conversation jogged my memory about the footage. I'll be more clear in the future.

I love it when people rail again speculations by calling them "rumor" and "innuendos" and then proceed to offer their own :lol:.



Right. Let me highlight a certain qualifier in the rhetorical phrase since you're too busy trolling instead of thinking.

That whole word 'MAYBE' is a big fucking clue. While YOU were clearly advocating a definite mode of behavior, I was highlighting one of many prosaic, common possibilities. All without pretending I, through my fucking Ninja Photo Analysis Skill, actually knew what was going on.

Your analysis, stupid and shallow as it was, was predicated on the accepted truth of Michael Shermer, Potential Date Rapist allegations about his conduct. I'm merely pointing ONE of MANY possible generic human interaction interpretations that don't rely on Michael Shermer being a Potential Date Rapist.

I also showed that this very same behavior was commonly engaged in by other members of the community as shown in her Facebook albums. Yet you gave us the in-depth (idiotic) analysis of Michael Shermer, Potential DAte Rapist interpretation. All you left out was refilling wine glasses.

Your analysis was childish and idiotic. And I'm done talking about it since you're clearly going to run down the rabbit hole. (That's a fucking metaphor.)

@Tribble:

Oh my, those are some big red letters, they almost made me miss those bold black ones. Anyways, I assure you I didn't miss your "maybe". In fact, that's why I called it speculation. Your reaction is still funny though since I also used a similar language of doubt and uncertainty.

Likewise: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PD0Faha2gow

At best, the SJWs are looking for Easy Answers: a Zero Tolerance prohibition on certain words and images, to spare themselves the Cognitive Dissonance of acknowledging that Competing Values come with trade-off costs. (sacrificing Freedom for Security, for example.)

At worst, the SJWs are intentionally spinning a web of nonsensical Gotcha rules; so their political opponents will be in perpetual violation.

I think blatantly violating their social rulemaking, and sticking-around to defend my questionable choices, is an effective strategy.


All this SJW political correctness is just an attempt to dress-up the same old smallmindedness in a guise of high-mindedness.

As always, I cite Paul Fussell's book "Class",
https://web.archive.org/web/20040313073 ... status.htm

I agree with Fussell's opinion: aversion to rude words (and to Art containing pointed jabs) is specific to the middle-class. The upper and lower class speak forthrightly, without histronics. Concerned PTA Mothers shouldn't be tacitly empowered to decide which epithets Other People are allowed to use, any more than they should decide whether Evolution is allowed in schools.

I've clearly lived a deprived childhood!
The thing is, 'trebuchet' is not exactly a common word and yet Watson used it twice within that article without a link or explanation for those of us who didn't have an upbringing that involved attacking medieval fortresses with giant stone- flinging catapults.

Non-horrible persons use the word "catapult".

People using "trebuchet" belong on a terrorist profiling list. Better safe than sorry.

My take is she is deliberately intellectually dishonest. I generally refrain from saying things like "it's too far gone" but having a productive dialogue with Ophelia would be surprising.

Your mileage may vary though.

I recall a c. 1979 issue of Scientific American with a feature on a trebuchet built in the UK that lobbed a Cooper Mini.

That was back before SciAm turned into Newsweek.

My sentiment is that she's getting too old and senile. Nobody can go on forever and there's a time for retirement and stuff and for Ophelia that time was two years ago.

Does Ophelia know that you're a contributor here? It seems to me that any terms would be fairly one-sided. Like the saying goes, "a leopard can't change it's spots." I'd personally need a little more info, any chance we could be privy to some of these communications?

Also, I've never seriously considered that you might be Carrier. Ool0n, though... :o

Aye. I love the drama though; I never used to but as it's went on this great divide has been the most internet fun I've had since...Well, since I found out that typing "soapy tits" into google would make loads of pictures magically appear.

There are way too many laughs to give it all up.
I'm not just talking about the Photoshops, or Gefan's videos, or the quips and witty one-liners. I love the little things; like Caine trying to convince everybody she's a Native American and PZ Myers' over-hyped book being a collection of old blogposts. Things like that just make me very happy indeed.

It's because they're so deeply amusing in their willingness to take offence at just about anything; less amusing are the unsubtle attempts to use the platform as leverage for speaking gigs via coordinated takedowns of scepticism personalities, but that's another story.

A good sanity check is to go to A+ and FTB and read the comments. You can find people saying similar things in both places, but there are uncommon elements; there's little or no consensus here, it is very much an open forum. it would be true to say that the Slymepit is completely misrepresented by the critics, but the Slymepit certainly has the measure of those critics.

As for not caring enough to check, well, that's not true, is it? You're hardly the first to say it, but ultimately, you are here.

prediction: she would treat it precisely as honestly and it would be precisely as productive as zvan's involvement in http://atheistskepticdialogue.com/

someone else perhaps has her glory quote. i can only get so far as welch saying

because Zvan straight-up admitted what we already knew: she had no intention of actually trying to communicate. She just wanted to show the other side was intellectually dishonest.
