Re: Alex's Stream Shelter? Safe Spaces? Echo Chambers? DISCU

As far as the echo chambers within this community go, I've noticed them. However, I stay quiet, rather than either piping up or echoing the sentiment, as it's much easier to do so on the Internet and not be seen as "not conforming." It's much easier to see that 30 people said "Yes&qu...

To vote for the NDP candidate, despite two polls both placed after the national liberal uptick suggesting the Liberal candidate has the best shot at defeating the Conservative in the riding.

Re: Canadian Federal Election 2015

Society and scientific views on the subject vary. The statement isn't necessarily incorrect, nor should there be a correlation to judge people's views on the subject at hand.

I suspect they do and are playing coy about it all. They know the news cycle and they know *most* of the internet forgets within a week of controversy, especially relatively minor stories like this. They've probably been advised to find someone with actual cred in this area (which they did) and inte...

Re: Venting Thread Delta - Now With Easy to Follow Rules

It's a shame that intelligent discussions can never happen on the interwebs (policing) because people drag emotional baggage into the debate with them. And also, the nature of interwebs encourages extreme opinions, rather than rational objective opinions. Me, whenever talking about bicycle helmet l...

Re: Penny Arcade and 'The Mike Problem'

Throwing it out there- but when there is nudity in OITNB it's either to be somewhat a wakeup call for the audience and the main character about the realities of prison, or in the case of the more sexualized scenes to draw viewership to illustrate that the relationship was real without dwelling on it...

That comic actually reflects some real conversations I've had about OITNB. The strip is funny because it's true- the first response to it is "Meh" but as soon as people mention that it has donna from that 70s show they perk up. It's a comment on the word of mouth advertising and the like. ...
