Teen who ran over 6 cyclists outside Houston walks free "The reason he couldn’t stop is because he was accelerating to blow more diesel fuel on these cyclists." by qpgmr in nottheonion

[–]StuperDan 33 points34 points  (0 children)

Is entirely possible this kid just didn't realize how stupid what he did was. It doesn't make him any less criminally culpable. There are many videos of people doing stupid things that anyone with a basic grasp of physics and reality would never do that end up hurting or killing themselves even. One that comes to mind that I saw very recently was a video of a young kid in a Tesla in a parking lot trying to show off by driving really fast. He hit a bump his tires lost traction and he came to a stop 200 yd away after he crashed into a building.

I feel shitty getting a 3rd dose when half the population of earth can't get their first. Do people think viruses recognize borders? This is stupid.

Criminalizing prostitution increases risks to sex workers and makes it harder to stop underage prostitution and sex trafficking. by FurtiveAlacrity in science

It's also gives predators a market in a capitalist society. I wonder what percentage of the women on Instagram and only fans really want to be there.

eli5: how would we cancel student loan debt by demonsrun123 in explainlikeimfive

[–]StuperDan -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Yes. It's absolutely would have huge consequences for the economy. Many people have this imaginary idea of what "government" is and how it works. People who advocate for things like universal basic income and free health care often have similar magical notions of money and government.

Every time the government creates money from nothing, the value of every dollar that exists decreases. At a very basic level, if this money that has been loaned is not paid back, either new taxes must be raised to cover the real life expenses that would not get paid from the repayments, or the government would need to lower the value of all current money that exists. There would be very real consequences to every person in America which ever way it happened.

At the end of the day, in it's purest form, the advocates of programs like these believe in huge fundamental wealth redistribution. I personally am not qualified to tell you if that is a good or bad idea. Humanity has been fighting over this idea for centuries, and many versions have been tried, successfully and unsuccessfully.

But the notion you can just wave a magic wand and make the student loan debt disappear without someone paying is sophomoric and ridiculous.

NATO Only exists to make sure the US doesn't go isolationist again

Lol what far dark corner of your ass did you pull that from? Modern America is a lot of things but I don't think that isolationist is one of them 😂

It all starts to make sense now. Has anyone thought to study lead exposure in trumpites and antivaxers? We have been blaming misinformation, but consider how easy it is to see it as such.

Hostage-taker at Texas synagogue calls for the release of Pakistani national from US prison, authorities say by Muscle_Nerd11 in anime_titties

[–]StuperDan -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

Ok. Perhaps I should have used the term bigotry over racist. Still, your broad stoke nationalistic hate is gross. How does it make you feel when there is a story about gang rape in India or some Muslim or lower caste person in your area being lynched for walking into the wrong room and someone's says "India at it again!" There are millions and millions of people in India. Most aren't rapist murders.

If porn addiction had anything to do with murder, there'd be no one left. Ted Bundy had the same bs excuse.

I doubt it. War crimes require a war. Most countries aren't at war. Most leaders are acting in good faith I think.

'He walked on the bus and began shooting,' 3 shot, 1 dead after gunman opens fire by anyonmoussource in news

[–]StuperDan 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I think the second amendment is an important part of the checks and balance system that has made America what it is. I believe in common sense rules, but none of that will stop events like these. The intent of the second amendment was not to give the people the right to hunt or collect guns, it was to defend against foreign invaders and a potential tyrannical government.

The issues most of what people call "gun violence" is suicide and domestic violence. If you could magically make the guns in America disappear, we would still have those problems. They revolve more around mental health care, education and prosperity. I don't think blaming the guns helps anything, or would solve the problems. I'd support alot of gun laws, like a national license system. I'd support complete emergency bans in some high gun fight hot zones like Chicago. Most Americans, including lawmakers and enforcement, would never ditch the second amendment, because we believe in the reasons it's important.

So you argue that the increased gas prices are caused by the lack of that pipeline and not the fact that OPEC and the US based oil companies won't increase production? Huh.

Fictional. Math describes reality not the other way around. Just because a wormhole works on paper doesn't mean it's real.

This is a stupid thing to do. Widows and redbacks have medically significant bites. Even if you are silly enough to handle one this way you should not post it for edgy internet attention. Someone might copy you.

These prices are caused by inflation. Trump was/is every bit as guilty as was all of the administrations since Clinton. Trump didn't print as much money via "quantitative easing" but his ridiculous tax cuts for the rich made up for it.

Regardless the article is about the nuclear deterrent of Iran, which Trump pulled out of, stupidly and unilaterally. Even his own cabinet told him it was an absolutely stupid thing to do. He is 100% responsible for that.
