“I think I did a comedy show with this guy one time (the HuffPo comedy editor). He did some improv with another guy. Was pretty good. But, yeah, is there such a dearth of funniness being added daily to the Internet that this is the best thing out there? As someone who used to make lots of comedy videos, I know that great ideas are hard to come by. Had I come by this idea, I would not have taken the time to execute it. Kudos for trying, though.”
“Really? Because I don't really care for Ricky's stand-up, but Louis C.K. has got to be one of the funniest people of all time. That's the beauty of the comedy game. So wildly subjective. I would like it if Seinfeld and Chris Rock were replaced by Bob and David.”
“How can someone who can't even get good grades in high school "excel" once they get to the college level? Furthermore it's absolutely true that the "students" on these basketball teams barely pay attention to the academic component of their time in college.”
“Okay, but it's not. People eat on the go. And when you are on a subway for 40 minutes and you are hungry and you have some food, eat it if you please! People eat in their cars. People eat on the sidewalk. Sometimes people even eat on the sidewalk while they are sitting down and being served by a waiter! It's considered the thing to do!
Eating on the subway is not ideal, but it is insane to think the rat problem can be mitigated by not eating on subway cars. The MTA is going to hire people to clean the cars anyway, wouldn't want them to have nothing to do.
And about the analogy to the public restroom, I read the other person's comment about the guys eating bagels and touching the pole and then wiping their faces and stuff AFTER a bum had touched his privates and then the same railing, well, those guys are just dumb. If you have to eat, do it like someone with common sense and don't touch everything in sight or act like Animal from the Muppets and you're cool in my book. I've never understood the argument that eating on the subway is nasty "just because."”
“Sak, I haven't even read the article or watched the video and I still know that no one can force you to go to their apartment to have sex with them and no one can force you to work for the same employer twice.”
I don't worship nature as deity anymore so than I do a God. I live on this earth and do the best I can. I do not need a definitive truth to mentally handle the events occurring around me. The nature and God spirits created too many fun things to do to waste my time mumbling about them on the weekends.”
“I would like to live on Planet Jeffy. A world of straight shooters. These were my thoughts. This woman is a total loser. And she is solely responsible for her child's insanity. It's like Cesar Milan and his dogs. The anxiety of the dog usual is the result of its owner's imbalance.”
“Molly, watch the video. He performs a deft, non-violent maneuver. As a soccer player, it's not even an aggressive move, it's one that requires you to think cleverly, not angrily. It's the equivalent of a misguided child running to the bird and scooping it up in his hands and lofting it toward the sky, thinking it would fly.”
“Did you watch the video? He lifted the bird off the ground. Anyone who doesn't get this is not all there.”

“That was a kick, you could clearly see the owl in the air before landing back on the ground. He could have had the decency to pick up the owl and remove it from the field, not treat it like a piece of trash lying on the ground.”
“Uhm, no he wasn't. The doctors even said so. I think it's important to read this guy's apology where he immediately accepted responsibility. But specific to your argument about soccer and types of kicks and the bird landing a whopping "several feet" away, the "kick" which he delivered is the soccer equivalent of a caress. This man is a professional soccer player. His ability to manipulate his legs and feet are on an elite level. Though he should have just let someone else handle it I fully believe his claim that he was hoping to give the bird a jump start on flying off, perhaps in a similar vein to the way a bug on its back needs a little help. If he had cruel intentions he could literally have made the bird explode. The fact that this isn't blatantly obvious to your naked eye scares me. I hope you are never a witness at a trial.”

“Nice comparison of flipping a bug off its back to a 80 or 90kg man kicking a 4 to 5kg bird. And I doubt he could literally made the bird explode without dynamite or an actual explosive. Kick it much harder and hurt it worse, sure; explode, not. Whether he could have kicked the owl harder isn't the point. The point is, did he kick the owl hard enough to injure it and thus require veterinary attention, which he did.
Also, smooth way you steer into a personal attack on me. That makes your comments look SO much more reasonable. I'll show some class and refrain from returning the favor, thanks.”
“Admittedly there is always an occasion for dunking some Oreos into some whole milk. This is undeniable. However, you, a human, feed the milk to your cat (and your dogs?!). Adult dogs or cats in the wild do not seek out the milk of their post-pregnancy pack/pride mates. Let's keep the debate going!”
“I watched 3.5 minutes and stopped it. I kept waiting for it to get "amazing." This was not amazing. Michael Jackson was amazing (not a fan of anything other than his performing abilities). This was far, far, far from amazing.”
“They were lip-syncing. I don't understand why everyone is so pumped about this. The Oscars are dumb. The kids weren't dancing like some pop tart, so if they weren't out of breath why couldn't they sing live? Totally lame.”
“The author mentions taking Obama's lead on pursuing drug use prevention as a public health issue versus a criminal issue. Obama has not in any meaningful way led on this issue. He has merely stated as much in fairly rote responses to questions from Americans about why the federal government persists in its War On Drugs. He is merely playing lip service to the issue while doing absolutely nothing about it. If he really wanted to do ANYTHING productive w/r/t the issue he could.”
“Deb, sick of all this coverage? Granted even with a major event such as that occurring in Egypt the 24 hour news cycle is still not able to continuously compel, but the coverage is important. It is the lack of coverage of our two foreign wars that allows for them to last forever with very few or vocal questions asked by the populace (as opposed to the Vietnam War, which lasted a very long time but was protested loudly and vociferously nearly as long). Would you prefer the coverage revert back to Octomom and what that Kate woman has done to her hair?”

“No, I would not like the coverage to revert back to Octomom or Sarah Palin. I'm still sick of the coverage.”
