I'd seen the term 'involuntary celibacy' used once before by a guy on a message board arguing (very badly, unfortunately) for legalization of prostitution, but given that that guy was not the sharpest knife in the drawer I figured he just came up with it himself.  Then I saw it on that bit of news and was like "Oh fuck, it must be some new MRA term. :("

After trying and failing at not including 'loser' in several variations of the title of the link to this news, I'm just going to link to it without comment.

EDIT 2:



If McCain had had the sense to select him as a VP Candidate the world would be a much happier place.

The bigger question is, why isn't he the Governor of Alaska yet?

A good question indeed.  Rick Perry has announced that he's (finally) going to quit running for the position of Governor of Texas; I wish they would export that cat to Texas and have him run.  Even if this place does seem like a bit more of a dog state.

Cats are cats no matter the size.
Another example:

Oh, and not a picture, but this music video never gets old.  It's definitely NSFW, though.

I don't know if this is real or not, but apparently dead baby soup is now a delicacy in China to improve virility.  http://www.thecontroversialfiles.net/2013/07/chinese-eat-baby-soup-for-sex.html

Ummm... yeah... if everything the world claims is an aphrodisiac really worked, then we'd all be walking around with perpetual boners humping everything that moves.

Don't believe everything you read, folks.

Ah, so instead of eating babies, it was actually a pretentious avant garde artíst.

In other words, worse.

...Hmmm....

Yeah, that is worse.

Judging by the number of people who were actually taken in by this (6 year old) article on this very board, it only confirms my pet peeve: people would rather be outraged and ignorant than be rational and fact check.

For reference, see: The discussion that occurred about four pages ago.

Wouldn't that just leave Rosie O'Donnel?

Hm, I think you might be on to something.

This seems an effective strategy, in particular if the goal is to reduce the population size by inducing mass suicide after people try to think of her in a sexual context out of pure desperation and can't get the PTSD inducing images out of their minds.


In other news...

I don't even think pedophiles USE Google. That seems like asking to be caught. I thought it was all be peer-network stuff, or you know a guy who knows a guy.

Terrorists don't tend to use sites and message boards that show up on Google either (or search for compatriots on Google), or their personal cell phones for that matter, and yet that's the excuse the US government has given for collecting internet and phone data on everyone in the country.

I'd say the common sense answer is that these operations have fuck-all to do with catching terrorists or catching pedophiles when it comes right down to it.  It's just an excuse that the public is expected to be willing to swallow.
71  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Today's News on: July 23, 2013, 09:18:32 PM
That's just infuriating.

Worst of all people are SO AFRAID of even being called a pedophille even when it's clearly untrue that they won't speak up.

Holy shit.  That strategy is even more brilliant and evil than, say, calling something the PATRIOT Act.  I didn't think that was possible short of naming something the Don't Kick the Puppy Act.

To add to the stuff you posted later, this also conveniently allows them to censor many other sites that they don't like because someone may upload something they deem offensive.

This strikes me as an excellent point; if the law is broad enough to allow for that it can open some pretty large floodgates.  Mind you, I don't know enough about British politics to comment in any kind of detail on the likelihood of them abusing that power, but generally speaking a government will be...welll...a government.

George Takei posted this on Facebook.  The shitstorm that resulted was hilarious.  Among other things, I learned from a Brit that the reason the American Revolution was fought was to stop a ban on slave ownership...even though Britain didn't ban it until roughly fifty years later.

EDIT: And peoples obsession over this stupid fucking royal baby is helping brush it all under the carpet.

Replace the UK with the US and this is exactly what's going on with the Abu Ghraib prison break. :(

Hundreds of escaped inmates, most of them confirmed terrorists (unlike Gitmo), but yeah, fuck that shit, the Royal Baby rules all.

Every day an Independant Scotland seems more and more like a good idea. Whatever will separate us from the Conservative party that's in power.

I'm having a hilarious mental image of a mass exodus resulting from this.
