Also called taps or well, but those are subsections of the bar itself.


Is this topic holding you back from finishing the meatball sub story?

So my daughter is going around the house with an app on her phone looking for ghosts and demons. Don't worry, I checked, it's not e-harmony.

In the case of the YouTube rewind, it is people just bitching that pewdipie was left off for being an unapologetic racist.

As far as I can tell with the halftime show, the original upload actually had sync delays so there is a real reason to re-upload.

It's the failures of any open online review system. The Godfather's IMDB rating still hasn't recovered from all the 1 star reviews it got in 2008 from dark knight fanboys trying to make it the #1 movie on the site.

I dunno, did you actually try watching it? It was some cringey awful shit. I don't think including the lord of the KinderKluxKlan would have mitigated anything.

Wait, the man known for playing vigilantes looking for payback was at one time a potential vigilante looking payback.
Which was over 4 years ago so those kids are now in high school and nearing college and lapping up the alt-right bullshit he's decided to peddle.
My daughter (16) still thinks he's funny, and argues that at least when he's an asshole, he admits it and apologizes for being an asshole, even when he's not actually losing money on it or whatever, and she's pretty far from right wing, but who knows? Maybe she'll rebel against me and become ultra-conservative.

Actual random crap: If you've never heard Blue Jam, and you've got a morbid, surreal sense of humor like mine, try it. I didn't like the TV show as much, but two episodes in I'm loving the radio show. Pretty good music too. Also, actually free online.

That'd mean more if it didn't keep happening. I'm not gonna suggest that it's realistic for an adult to talk a teenager out of liking what they like, but pewdipie is pretty clearly shit. Your daughter might be smart/good enough not to fall for it but others won't be.

Explain how he's different from almost any public personality, and I'll talk to her about it. ;)
How about when he paid two Sri Lankan men to dance around for him and hold up a sign saying "DEATH TO THE JEWS"?

Do you really wanna "both sides" this, motherfucker?

Sorry. I didn't realize he hurt you personally. I'll drop it.

Also, take a couple of deep breaths maybe. Last I checked, I wasn't an enemy of yours, or anyone else's around here, and generally avoid commenting on anything even remotely political, because certain forum members quickly attack you as if you've personally taken up a hosting gig on Fox News/MSNBC if you dare disagree or defend someone they've decided they don't like.

Anyway, like I came in here to say, Blue Jam. It's interesting.

I'm the last person to defend Pewdiepie about anything, but that sounds less like pushing an alt-right agenda and more like garden variety 4-chan nihilist misanthropy.

Actually it was getting people on Fivrr to do terrible things for very little cash. So I think the furor over it was a bit much. I mean, I don't think it's funny and I don't really believe his aim, but there are far worse things he could have done. Had he posted BEFORE he did it that he was trying to prove a point I'd be completely on his side. As it is, his "aim" seems more like an excuse than anything.
