Commented on Operation Protective Edge

Being the underdog does not condone nor excuse the killing of innocent civilians.

Israel is being a magnificent asshole for abusing American assitance and their superior firepower in the killing of civilians.

Palestine is being a magnificent asshole for using civilians as shields for weapon storehouses to use in the killing of civilians.

If we put it that way, everybody from the US to the UN has been a magnificent asshole since the creation of the State of Israel. And neither Israel nor Palestine is helping solve the issue in ANY way.

I remember guides being sold as booklets but I never saw an ad for a VHS

Then game GameFAQs.com and the business of guides was over.

Commented on Comcastic service disconnection by ryan.block

As a former Comcast CSR, I will provide my 2¢:

This type of call is standard procedure for most companies. It’s called “reselling the service”. The idea is that you as a CSR need to find out what is the customer’s complain and provide a solution so that you can keep a satisfied customer instead of losing a disappointed one.

That being said, this CSR is using an innecessarily rude tone.

I recall AOL having a similar call a couple of years ago. After the fallout, they implemented a policy where CSRs are not allowed to push the issue more than 2 times, which sounds pretty reasonable. The main difference is that AOL rewarded CSRs with bonuses for each retained customer. Comcast considers this resale an integral part of Quality Control for incoming calls, and CSRs are penalized if they fail to attempt.

I am not going to start defending the CSR, because he was an asshole. However, I can understand why he was being so rude and pushy about it.

Everybody knows how Comcast screws their customers…but employees (especially outsourced ones) are pretty screwed too.

I disagree. They may win another World Cup. Just not as hosts.

As far as I recall, Brazil and Spain are the only World Champions that have not won as hosts.

Your body is about 70% water, which is 2/3 hydrogen. This means that your body is only about 54.444% stardust

Commented on I'll have to disagree with that

The thing is statistics for violent crimes by females hold even for actions that do not require a report.

Most serial killers (over 85% if I recall correctly) are male. This is also true for school shooters. And when was the last time you recall a standoff or car chase between police and a female offender?

Yes, I know it is not exactly right to generalize, and women are capable of violent crimes. I am well aware that there are indeed cases of domestic violence where the perpetrator is female. But statistics is the only way to hold a meaningful, evidence-based argument, and dismissing them makes this debate subjective, and therefore biased.

Saying that women are generally less violent that men is sexist? Since when is it wrong to point out possitive attributes? Is it because it’s an stereotype?

You people really confuse me sometimes…

Or did I misinterpret satire?
