Big trouble for vultures in India as I'm sure most folk know. A 97-99% population drop due to dicoflenac poisoning. Banning the chemical in rural India has proved predictably useless. So it's captive breeding:

Whoah there! Who was it who brought this up in the first place? Who was it who complained only about her own fee fees with no thought for poor wanker? Pah!


Oh, you know that since none of these jackals can ever admit to error, they have no choice but to try to turn it around and make it look like we're the bad guys.

So let me get this straight. Jen McCreight, the leader of an alleged social justice movement, shows utter revulsion while mocking a mentally ill homeless man, all so she can get some lols from the bootlickers on her Twitter feed. She gets called out for her callousness and lack of concern for this person, so naturally it's our fault, because, like, we're using him or something. But McCreight wasn't using this homeless man to get laughs on her Twitter feed, no siree bob... because, well, patriarchy or something. OK I got it now.

...
But hate, much less pathological hatred of women? Not a bit. At best, you can say the atmosphere in that regard is of an overwhelming sense of betrayal ("But you said this would benefit us too").
You mean you werent convinced by The Cabbie's stellar arguments in the recent debate? He didnt convince you that Elam is a 'Times Square Nutter'?
Somebody left this comment at his blog
Comment_On_Cabbies_Blog.jpg


Betrayal because of naiveté.

That article seems to be the favourite to cite as "evidence". If one actually reads Elam's view of jury nullification, he explains his reasoning quite thoroughly, and logically. His argument is not easy to tear down, he has a strong case. Even those who disagree, would have to do so without the ability to dismiss his points. I'm sure someone can come up with solid reasons against jury nullification in the situation he refers to, but not by rendering Elam's position invalid.

Most (if not all) articles on AVfM are nowhere near as volatile a subject as that one.


For those of you who don't want to dig to find it, the issue is a remark that Elam made about his unwillingness to find someone guilty of rape if he was on a jury. John the other also mentions Jury Nullification in the intro to the A Voice for Men radio show.

Of course, only total nitwits think they are saying "I want to let guys get away with rape". The not too nuanced argument comes from the findings of The Innocence Project that men have spent decades in prison with little recourse for rape convictions. The argument isn't that women lie about being raped, although some do. They also make errors of memory, as Dr. Elizabeth Loftus has shown, particularly in cross-racial identification. Cops have notoriously done loaded photo line-ups for victims which can essentially plant one suspect in a woman's mind.

People make mistakes. We all know that. Human memory is often in error. Most of our memory is confabulation (for instance, memories you have of yourself in the third person can't be real memories, can they? Even if the event occurred, the point of view is reconstructed). We treat eyewitness testimony as more reliable than "circumstantial" evidence, but it is not even close to being as good as "circumstancial" physical evidence.

What's more terrifying is the extent to which prosecutorial misconduct is uncovered. We're all familiar with moral panics and witch-hunts like the Satanic Ritual Abuse and Child Molestation hysteria. What is scary about that is not only the degree to which evidence was manufactured, but how exculpatory evidence was suppressed and, really, how easy it was to convict people on pure bullshit, especially if they were mentally weaker than average or didn't have the resources to fight effectively. One can argue that rape itself has become a moral panic where society is more than willing to send innocent men to prison in order to foster the illusion of security.

I take the position that even if I agreed with the death penalty in principle, I would never be in favor of it in practice because of the inherent flaws in people, our system and, frankly, that being a prosecutor is a exercise in politics. Elam is extending this to rape as well.

So in light of that, Paul Elam saying he wouldn't vote to convict a man of rape even if there was overwhelming evidence of guilt isn't that out there considering 1. What we consider evidence is crap and 2. The evidence that the jury gets isn't necessary the evidence that there is, and juries can't know what exculpatory evidence was withheld, even destroyed in a political, ideological pursuit.

So, the interpretation "Paul Elam likes rape" is only the sort of thing an idiot or someone trying to sell something comes away with.

When I first saw this argument my reaction was "Jesus Christ, you just know this is going to be mined to death". Which is sad to think one has to write in such a way to fill in the spaces where someone can misconstrue. It's like Darwin having to re-write his argument on the development of eyes, eliminating the "It seems impossible" set up just because some douche-bag Creationist ends up quoting only that part.

That's "Last Kind Words Blues" by Geeshie Wiley, recorded in 1930. It was used in the documentary Crumb. Good catch. I think about 5% of total questions on my channel are about that fucking tune, which you can find on YouTube, incidentally.

Hahaha. I remember them. I'll probably go a little darker with mine. I think "macabre-psychedelic" is the term I'll use to describe how slow moving traffic will look through their eyes, too. I'll be sure to post it after I get it done. (Might be a while...) I'll possibly out myself when I do though, since I definitely plan to use it for my portfolio site...

That's what the short video on Youtube was about. "Vanishing Vultures". Was hoping for something more educational and less depressing when I went looking. :(

I thought that the whole idea of this fucked up dutch auction of privilege was that whoever had the least got to tell everyone else what to do, say and think.

Ha ha. This, from the person who formed A+ supposedly to apply the principles of logic, skepticism and critical thinking to social justice issues? HAHAHAHAHAHA! Way to intentionally misrepresent the criticisms, Jen.

The only people stupid enough to fall for that tweet are the A+/FTB slob choir she preaches belches to. Jesus fucking Christ these people are an orchestra of kazoos.

At least she got the "idiot logic at its best" part right, although she should be directing it at herself, not others.

A lone woman has no power over the invisible force that is The Patriarchy®. The powerful Misogyny waves being radiated by the man extended out, like a phallus intent on rape, [which this clearly was] and held her in place, forcing her to watch! Do not be fooled by the man's homelessness, the power of his privileged, male-sexuality is still intact!

That's hilarious. Brings back lots of memories about the crazies from my town. Wacky drug addicts were usually what we dealt with. Actually, one of my older sisters and I sometimes played a game where we stayed up the whole night, looking out the window and counting addicts walking by. We lived on the 4th floor of our building, so we had a pretty good view.

The neighborhood we moved to when we came to the U.S. wasn't anywhere near as crazy*, but it was the first time that I saw cross dressing prostitutes. :D


*We had a Puerto Rican National Guard unit come and occupy my neighborhood for a few weeks in '92 so the police could restore order. The police turned one of the first floor apartments into a makeshift headquarters, but not long after the soldiers rolled out, the drug dealers returned and shot the place to Hell. [Still remember all of the bullet holes in those aluminum windows.] The police left without a fight. Been trying to find anything about it on the internet, but to no avail...

Seriously, Jen is complaining about a homeless man wanking in public (where the fuck else is he supposed to wank without a home?) without her consent (homelesswankingconsentform.jpg) and when people are speaking up that maybe she's a little unkind to the homeless person who a) doesn't have a home and b) may be mentally ill, she's turning it around and saying that people want to use her denigrating a homeless wanking in public against her?

Well, gee, I wonder why. :doh: :doh: :doh: :doh:

Hello Horror. I live with numerous spiders (had to nail a black widow at the irrigation box a couple of weeks ago), the cats get a few of them now and then, but the thing that irritates me the most are the small sugar ants that invade the house every summer. There must be a huge colony of them around here.

Ah blimey, this brings back memories - me, about 13 and doing my weekend job helping my uncle on his milk round. Up at four in the morning, out into the freezing cold, and often it was still dark. I was one of the very few kids that had thermal underwear and long johns. Anyways, I loved it, because it's surprising how many people are about when you think everyone is asleep. And for some reason, it's those early hours which really bring out the quality local nutters.

Picture me, rearranging crates on the float with near-frostbitten fingers, and from my left I hear a cry of, "MY FUCKIN MOTHER IS A DIRTY WHORE WHO WEARS FRILLY KNICKERS!" Sure, I did almost shit meself, but only out of surprise - charging down the street in his oversized duffel-coat and Moe haircut was the well-known local loon known for running up and down the pavements giving vent to probably the most extreme case of tourettes ever known to man. Really, he could not stop fulminating about his mother's peccadilos; bit of shocker to have him run past you yelling about his dear old mum's minge, but I can safely say I did not feel too cheapened in having not consented to hear his dirty talk.

Besides, it was fascinating to note that as ever, he was carrying two full shopping bags; I couldn't help but wonder what places could be open at about five in the morning. In any case, my uncle just shrugged and complained about his haemhorroids; he was a bit of miserable git, to be honest.

Google for New Caledonian Crow (Corvus moneduloides) - completely amazing birds. Experiments have shown that they can conceptualize and execute a workflow using three separate tools.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/8631486.stm


The crow family as a whole is my favourite by far of all the Aves, with the European Magpie (Pica pica) top o' the heap, and the Common Raven (Corvus corax) a VERY close second...

Have you seen the "A Murder of Crows" episode of the PBS program Nature? Crows can recognize different human faces, and pass on information about "dangerous" people to their offspring. Also, if you like crows and ravens, Bernd Heinrich's books Ravens in Winter and Mind of the Raven might be of interest - in fact, all of Heinrich's books are worth reading, IMHO.

Edward Abbey didn't have a sky burial, but according to one of his friends who carried out his last wishes, a Turkey Vulture and a Red-tailed Hawk were present when he was buried somewhere in the desert. The story is in one of the segments in this episode of TTBOOK, worth listening to just for the appropriateness of King Crimson's The Sheltering Sky as background music.
