  1. Where is the international disaster appeal for Katrina?

    I distinctly remember hearing Rice say that they -are- accepting offers, and that the earlier rumor about Canadians being denied the ability to help was incorrect. I can't find the damned speech anywhere anymore, though. Anyway, the thread is about the apparent lack of international appeal, which is what my post was referring to.
  2. Humor.

    So.. I'm interested to hear about people's views on humor at other people's expense? A large percentage of all humor is at somebody else's expense, but where does one draw the line? When does it become bad taste, and is one still allowed to laugh at bad taste, if in the privacy of one's own home? Where do we draw the line? Jokes about minorities? Birth defects? Nationality? When is laughing at other people's expense alright, and when is it not done? What are your views?
  3. Kanye West Speaks Out On NBC Hurricane Drive

    Is there a video somewhere of Chris Tucker sitting stunned for several seconds? The link you provided stops just after the guy says the line.
  4. Humor at other people's expense

    So, I was trying to get a nice discussion going on the topic of humor at other people's expense in another thread, until it was shot down and the thread locked out of bad taste, or something. But the discussion remains interesting. What about humor at other people's expense? A large percentage of all humor is at somebody else's expense, but where does one draw the line? When does it become bad taste, and is one still allowed to laugh at bad taste, if in the privacy of one's own home? Where do we draw the line? Jokes about minorities? Birth defects? Nationality? When is laughing at other people's expense alright, and when is it not done? What are your views?

    Hmm. Tune into CNN, perhaps. Hear it straight from the horse's mouth.
  6. lol @ louisiana

    Well, if you want. But I was actually interested in how you disagree with my views. I hear this opinion voiced often, but nobody ever wants to get down to the details of exactly why it is so bad. Which makes me wonder.

    Hmm, I saw this news about a day ago. What news are you watching?

Quote:Original post by Anri Well, ya - I was a bit peeved at links contents. But not against you - I just pointing out that laughing at others expense can be a bad thing... Yeah, I gathered. I really don't see the harm in it, though. Perhaps you'd care to explain. This time without zero terminated strings.
  9. Where is the international disaster appeal for Katrina?

    Canada, Britain, Australia, Japan, Germany, France, The Netherlands and Sri Lanka, to name a few. Turn the news on again. Maybe you'll see Condoleezza Rice's speech in which she names and thanks a long list of countries that have offered aid.
  10. lol @ louisiana

    I really don't get this. Are you pissed off? Were you pissed off and are you trying to cover by making funnies? Are you talking about some sort of Karma thing? Are you doing something else? What? I'm genuinely in the dark here.

  12. lol @ louisiana

    I... don't see what you mean at all?
  13. swallowing a coin

    Quote:Original post by Sneftel Quote:Original post by Charles Hwang Let's say when one was about 6-8 years old, they swalled a coin (nickel/quarter, or osmething like that). By the time of 15, what would have happened? Well, eventually you're bound to see some change. *ba-dum-cshhhh* Poetry. Sheer poetry.
  14. Black Phone Booths?

    Quote:Original post by DrewGreen @CM, nice poem. I don't think it's got anything to do with the goth movement though That wins as the most hilarious clueless post of the month.

    What the hell is going on in this thread?
