Well, not all parents love their children. The boy who I lived next to growing up had a bitch of a mother, ignored him, hit him, kept him outside until well after dark. My mum looked after him a lot, but I guess she was scared to report the abuse due to the family being an Irish gangster family. She was always saying stuff like "What did the little cunt do now?".

He's in jail now, broke into an old ladies house and robbed and assaulted her.

This statement reminds me of the contents of the last Zeitgeist movie, Moving Forward, where the scientists interviewed were indicating that the most common driver of violence in people is being abused as a child.  Not video games, TV, movies, or music.

And Star, your last comment of "Nationalism, ho!" is funny because I'm actually playing Recettear right now.  Thank you summer Steam sale!

There are a few scenes and I believe codec calls too in MGS1, 2 and 4 that mention how stupid and inefficient the concept of "virtual training" is trough video games. I remember a YouTube video where some guys from Fox News where talking about how video games are raising our children to be criminals and be prepared for war.

I was rolling my eyes so hard.

Oh man that woman.... I think she is scarier than the fact she has a bunghole tattoo.

http://www.avclub.com/articles/daniel-tosh-rushing-to-find-some-jokes-that-arent,82455/
I totally missed this when it happened. Interesting?
+ I get a woman standing up in defense of what she believes in
+ Dan Tosh "going on with the show" in spite of an unnatural hiccup
- The woman not taking a joke while attending a "comedy show"
- Dan's tasteless and almost pointless "rebuttle", but more than that, bidding the audience to join was just stupid.
= Trying to cover the situation and help make things better, Dan Tosh decided to edit the first episode of his upcoming TV show to get rid of the rape jokes in it, and in a rush as well.... this begs the question; how much of the first episode was centered around rape? 

I like this since brings up all them questions about "what's funny" and "when" that always hits a blurred line.

I'm more confused by the woman than her colour of skin (I AM "COLOUR"BLIND...i.e.; not racist).  Right below it says 'insulin' and some medical lady even though it was men who had the bigger hand in the discovery. 

I didn't really find she looked really Asian either...?  Ah well, I have no idea what's going on.

I think the article was saying it's a redraw or something (it's written kinda weird, or I suck at reading).
EDIT: Yeah, it's a redraw to remove yellow in favor of white.  Differing paper confirmed that.  haha -- can't believe the bank went and redrew a white woman over an asian one

Whatever.  Just put Banting on there, it'd make more sense.
