First off. Going out against smoking and sugary drink sizes is different than going after a company for it's beliefs. Sugary drinks and smoking affects your health, your health affects your ability to work and that most certainly is a governmental problem. Just because you hate coloured people, immigrants and gays doesn't make you a bad worker.
Companies should be allowed to speak out their view on things as long as they don't break the law. Simple. A company should be allowed to go out and say "Niggers are less worth than us white people", but they shouldn't be allowed to say "We're not hiring niggers because they can't work properly" and actually do it. Then you're venturing into something different and making accusations and not front values and ideas. THere's a bit of a difference.
And are they being run down too hard due to an executive's slip of tongue? Well, that all depends. He is a spokesperson for the company, so wherever he is he will be representing his company. Same way Obama will always represent the US, Queen Elizabeth will always represent the UK. It's just the way it is. People will connect you to that company/place no matter what, thus anything you say will immediately be connected with the company. It won't be the cunty cashier. You earn millions, thus you're never really off the clock. It's just the way it is.

I think we're back on track. Flare-ups happen, but everyone's an adult here. As long as we keep our heads and stay on topic, all will be fine.
Close but no cigar
But back to the topic. I doubt Obama is stupid enough to sign a bill that pretty much says "Black kids will recieve less punishment than white ones!" if I'm reading this crap right. Fair enough, politicians in general aren't the smartest ones around and American politicians doesn't have an image to the outside world as the smartest ones(talking as an outsider looking in), but I doubt anyone of them are retarded enough to actually promote something like that in an election year, unless they are in a constituency where 50% of the voters are KKK members or Black Power members. And as far as I know, the pivot states that Obama needs to win to be re elected are not 50% Black Power...

Topic If your Girlfriend asked you to have a threesome would you and who would be the other person?
02 Aug 2012 17:57
Tough one. Really is a tough one. My first gut feeling is that with a second guy there's no fucking chance. With a girl is more likely, although then it's with the understanding that there's no requirment or attempt to guiltrip me into having a mmf threesome.
When it comes to who the ideal person for me at least is someone you're never gonna see again. Helps avoid any suspicions of jealousy like "Will he leave me for her?" etc, but then again, come that you don't know if the stranger is free of any STD's.
My advice; if it's a girl, then agree on a girl where you both feel confident it won't bring any drama to your relationship. It's supposed to be a fun experience, not something that leaves you thinking "The way he fucked that girl. He's never done that with me before." or the other way around. There are several complications that can come from having a threesome after you've done it, unless you're both sure that you're 100% ok with it.

Thank you, but I don't want to get anyone in trouble, that's just not who I am. I just want everyone to be more respectful of others. Like the saying goes : If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.
Sadly, that's not the way things usually works. If you're being harassed please let us know. You might be able to handle it, but it may drive someone else from the site, and we don't want that. Let us know so we can let the bully know that they if they don't start behaving, a certain story verifier will handle it personally...

Topic Why is Friday 13th considered unlucky?
01 Aug 2012 17:41
It was also done with the blessing of pope Clement V. Although Philip owed much money it was also believed that the Knights Templar had considerable funds and were in possession of a secret that they were holding over the pope.
The whole "The templars had a mighty secret over the chatolic church" is pure and utter bullshit. That false knowledge is something we can thank the Da Vinci Code for, which is based wholely on a book(Holy Blood, Holy Grail) which is based on reading two scrolls that were forgeries, two scrolls that they never saw but they knew with certainty what was in them, and interviews with a man that only wanted people to believe he was a decendant from the old French kings. So basically it's only believed by those who don't know anything about the templars.
Topic The Rage Cage
01 Aug 2012 13:13
I hate the icecream van. I hate it with a fullblown passion that only a person who hates the icecream van as much as I do can understand. It's annoying. The music is terrible, it's something that has been spat out of hell and rewritten and sung by Phil Collins and Justin Bieber. The way the music drills into your ear and lays there, buzzing like some sort of insect that you can't get out. It makes me wanna stick a long needle in my ear and dry to get it out, just to get the hell rid of it. I want to be relieved of the suffering. I wanna stand on my porch with a rocketlauncher and next time it drives by I wanna pull the trigger and watch the missle fly straight into the van and blow it to smitherines. Or maybe create an IED, put it on the roadside and hide in the bushes like some commando and then click the button and see as it goes up into a cascade of flames and vapourised ice cream.
Because it's not just the sound. It's the ice cream as well. You have to run to reach it, you can't walk, because they know that someone is pushing you out the door and forcing you to go buy it, so they'll park it far away just so you know that you have to run, even when you don't want the fucking icecream. And when you buy it it's overpriced. It's cheaper to get it in the store, but the brand is so shite that no store with respect for itself will take it in.
Trust me. There will be a day when I will have my vengance on the ice cream truck. And when that happens I hope this post gets deleted so it won't go down as premeditated....

Topic Aggressive Chatters
31 Jul 2012 06:48
As a chatmod, my advice to you is to block them straight away. You have a blockbutton, use it. There are no rules against asking someone to suck your dick/eat you out after just two lines. If they are too agressive in whisper then we can't do anything, simply because we don't see it. Just block them and let them be on their way. Now if someone calls you a cunt, then you should block them straight away. If it's said in public and a mod spots it there should be a little telling off to whoever calls someone else a cunt. Abusive language isn't acceptable.
In any matter, just use the blockbutton. It's there for a reason. The chatrooms are like a bar, and like in any bar there are people who you wanna slap that will walk up to you and proposition you.

The fuck is wrong with every company putting shitty music on when you're on hold? It makes my ears burn! Why the fuck can't you put some decent music on, something that won't make me want to jump off a cliff because the fall would probably be a lot more comfortable than listening to this shite they call music. Can't they for once, just one time, just not have waiting music? Just create a system that allows them to call back up when there's someone available. It's there! Use it!
Also, what's wrong with oversensitive people on here? They hear one phrase and can't be bothered to read the rest. They don't get a joke! They get all pissy and go crying and can't even bother to read the rest which will actually put things into context. LISTEN YOU MOTHERFUCKERS!

Topic Happens for a Reason
24 Jul 2012 04:54
Let's just say for the sake of argument that there is a divine being, it be one god or several gods. Hell, let's just stick to the Christian god because we all have somewhat knowledge about Christianity.
The Christian God is viewed as a divine being that is so magnificent and pure that we as humans cannot understand it, i.e. we will never be able to understand God. Thus giving birth to the line of how God works in mysterious way, simply because we cannot fathom his grand plan or his intentions by killing for instance a baby, or letting the batman shooting take place. Put on a grander scale you could ask how the hell could he let Hitler take place and kill 6 million jews and start a war that either directly or indirectly caused the death of a shitload of people.
The other way to look at it is that maybe God is an absolute prick and is no better than the old Greek gods that enjoys seeing us in misery. After all, he did give us humans free will and then gives us 200 or so commandments that we need to follow. Sadistic old sod...
Or maybe this is all the devil's work and there's a constant power struggle between God and the Devil. God tries to create good things on Earth while the devil does what he can to destroy it, hence Hitler and all the other crap.
Or maybe God is retired and left the wheel over to Jesus and Jesus is having a bit of a start up problem. Maybe they're even all drunk and stoned up there in heaven! (I will never know, because with this post I'm so definetely going straight to hell I might as well back shorts and t-shirts straight away).

And they do say gamers are the best lovers because they are unselfish in bed...
Topic Ends justify the Means
20 Jul 2012 13:24
11 people are stuck in a life boat and they know where the go. They have food enough for 10 people for the entire journey, so they either have to throw one person overboard or all 11 of them starve. No one volunteers.
So, should they kill one man or should all 11 starve? Killing is wrong, but killing one man would save 10 others.
It's one of the age old dilemmas; is it ok to sacrifice a few for the greater good? Sacrificing a few for the benefit of the greater good is having the ends being justified by the means.
How much is one life worth? After all, we're sacrificing lives every day in different ways. I'm sure we could have made the roads safer and all that crap, but we spend money on funding theatre and art.
To me it kind of depends. In some cases the ends may justify the means.

Don't think dumping him is your best option. Some guys aren't succeptible to poetry. Maybe you were just a bit unlucky in that department, but that doesn't mean you should be so gutted about it. I can understand being gutted, because after all you wrote it for him, but don't think he thinks your writing is crap.
Personally I wouldn't put much into it. I'm sure he shows affection towards you in other ways and appreciates you being there. So there's one thing that he don't like. So what?

Topic girls dating older men: it's a lifelong progressive pattern?Or just a temporary thing?
07 Jul 2012 11:49
Doesn't the whole maturity thing fade out rather fast? I'm just guessing, but in my experience with people when you've reached mid 20's you're sort of set at the level of maturity you'll be for the rest of your life. Sure, we'll all change when greater things happen, like you stop school and you start working or if you ever have a kid, but I'd think that once you hit that age you're kinda as mature as you'll be.
Let it be noted that I'm not counting experience in this, simply because I consider that rather individual. There are those younger than me with more life experience and safer financial wise than I am, and there are those older than me who are less experienced and worse off financially than me.
