I call love for stupidity instead. :v
Because I really love how this person assumes malevolence when there is none.[/sarcasm]
At least the stance presented is...solid. >_>

Personally, I don't think it makes sense. For one thing, grammar can actually be semi-important, whereas race and gender are irrelevant 99.99% of the time.

Also, that's the biggest generalization I've seen today.

If they're not comparing grammar to racism (just saying that disliking poor grammar makes you racist), then... what?

I meant that people who care about grammar or punctuation are assumed to have some malevolent motive behind it?
...Which is somehow also put towards people who love logic or intellect (or wisdom, philosophy and such things?)
Hence why I said stupidity :/ Lacking context--it doesn't look like there's anything good from that image other than someone assuming ulterior motives.

I wasn't responding to what you said, really. I was more stating my opinion on the original image. You just happened to be the most recent poster. Looking at that post, I can understand how it can be misinterpreted, since the context isn't fully included.

Yeah it's an attempt at satire. They're equating caring about classism/racism/what have you to anti-intellectualism.

Quote from: Chesterton
For, in order that men should resist injustice, something more is necessary than that they should think injustice unpleasant. They must think injustice absurd; above all, they must think it startling. They must retain the violence of a virgin astonishment. When the pessimist looks at any infamy, it is to him, after all, only a repetition of the infamy of existence. But the optimist sees injustice as something discordant and unexpected, and it stings him into action.

You're all a bunch of Grammar Nazis.

My roommate's cat will start reaching under the door and meowing until I open it, at which point she will look up at me, feebly meow one final time, and run away. I checked her food and water, she's fine on both, and when I try to pet her, she runs under the furniture and cowers away from my hand.

She probably just wants the door to be open. Not liking closed doors desk to be a rather common cat thing, for reasons that elude me. She might just want to check that you're there and that she isn't alone or something too, even if she doesn't want to be petted.

I spent 20$ on a WoWTCG card from Troll and Toad ten days ago - It was supposed to be here on the 18th. I've gotten no word on what the fuck caused it to be late, and since I've never used Ebay before, I have no idea how to say "Dude, what the fuck?"

FUCKING 20$. >_< It is't much in the Long run but considering how much I make a week, it is kind of a big fucking deal.

Yes. They're animals. Animals generally have feelings.

Those aren't feelings, those are goals. Don't go around pretending our close relatives don't have the basically same kind of feelings as we because they lack our language features and/or can't compute as abstractly.

Welp... It looks like part of the reason why the ferry fell on its side was because the first sailor turned the autopilot off in a region where even seasoned captains keep it on and tried to guide the heavy, top-loaded ferry around whirlpools between the tiny islands the ferry wasn't supposed to go through anyways, and accidentally turned it so fast that the improperly secured cars and containers slid to the side (because he bumped into a rock or something and was startled), knocking the ship over and causing water to seep in. The ship would have sunk much slower if the ship wasn't knocked over.

And more reasons why the casualties were so high include the fact that the SOS button didn't work, the first sailor figured out that it didn't work and called the water traffic control that was further from the ship, the WTC contacted the closer WTC nearly 10 minutes later, the captain hightailed out of the boat for no reason, the public announcement system stopped working after the sailors told the passengers to 'stay put for now' but before they could confirm that the ship was unsalvagable, the fact that most of the passengers were high school students that were prone to listening to authority, that they were on the 4th floor of the ship (instead of the 3rd or 2nd), ... Sufficient lifeboats were onboard, but they were too old and didn't deploy. Besides, they were quickly suspended multiple meters above the surface.

The only reason some students actually lived is because they decided to try to escape anyways, instead of trusting the announcement. A tragic part of this accident is that because the ship was in cellular signal range, the parents of the children received multiple messages while the ship was sinking. :(

Friggin normal accidents. They only happen when a bunch of mistakes synergize with each other. Human error plus mechanical error is the recipe for death.

"MGS:GZ is too short even for $30"
I'm not going to claim that Ground Zeroes has as much content as a full MGS game. It doesn't need to have that much content because Ground Zeroes costs less than half the price of a full MGS game. I payed $100 for Red Faction: Guerrilla at launch and I finished it in six hours.

What they wrote: "I'm going to quit playing video games because they have micro-transactions in them. I don't remember video games asking me to pay more when I was a kid."
What I saw: "I'm going to stop eating meat pies because some shops want me to pay extra for tomato sauce."
