“Whenever an MMA fighter saves someone from being robbed or assaulted, which has happened multiple times this year, I've never seen those headlines on HuffPo. Come on, HP, a little journalistic integrity, please. I'm sure that 95% of HuffPo readers don't watch MMA, but don't pull a Faux News and preach to the choir on stuff they don't know about.”

“As someone who hopes to be a professional MMA fighter someday soon I would like to say this is one of the most intelligent, well thought-out posts I've seen on this site. Thank you.”

“I guess "legitimate rape" is when a woman struggles through the entire episode and "illegitimate rape" is when she concedes that she's being assaulted and lets the guy finish? I guess in some kooky Bizarro world one could validate criticizing a woman for not fighting all the way, but rape is rape, dude.”

“!!!!!!!!!!!SPOILERS(kind of)!!!!!!!!!

I hate to say it, but I broke and bought the Game of Thrones books so I could read up on the subplot involving Jon Snow and Ygritte(my favorite sub-plot) and now I don't even feel like watching the rest of the series, even though it's been my favorite show in the last 7-8 years. :(”

“I've been a DC fan since I could walk and Green Lantern has been my favorite character for a long time. I was blown away when I heard about the movie and it was the most anticipated movie in years for me... and then I saw the first footage, and then the trailers and then eventually the movie. Talk about disappointment. DC has billion-dollar properties and they're just frittering them away. If they do the same with JL then they don't deserve success.”

“I agree Ryan Reynolds was bad casting he simply does NOT fit the role & it showed. It's like casting Jim Carry as the Riddler. You take that same performance, make it darker add Jack Nicholson's makeup & you have a PERFECT Joker. they need to NOT cast "pretty boys & girls" in these roles. Superman & Batman have to look like they could enter a Heavyweight boxing match & win.”

verashula on Aug 8, 2012 at 22:25:08

“Same, love GL, but as soon as I heard Ryan Reynolds was in it, i lost interest. I hoped when i saw it I'd be surprised and pleased, but the guy is just a really really bad actor.

With better writing, directing, and much better acting and casting, GL could be a good movie.

Hopefully they don't ruin Justice league”

“I've had the same strawman argument thrown at me with Christians. I say that I am passively indifferent about religions all together and the first thing said is "Wow, you must have a lot of hate in your heart. Why do you hate God so much?" They could've easily said "Why do you hate Disneyland so much?" because the two accusations are similarly unfounded and wholly unrelated to my position. You can reason with the unreasonable.”

“Oh, of course. Like I said, this is how these faith-based organizations work. Their entire philosophy is based on an assumption that their beliefs are true, so whenever some new phenomenon arises, they have to find a way to fit it into the puzzle of their pre-established belief system. Hence, aliens do exist, but they're demons... you know, like OUR Bible says...

It's just a really lazy and claustrophobic circular path of inert ignorance. It's also extremely egotistical to assume ultimate knowledge yet have no proof that you know anything.”

“I have to disagree with his notions that discovery of alien life would destroy religion. If anything, it would bolster it. Religious people find ways to shoehorn contradictory evidence into their faith-based systems, so if alien contact was made they'd simply say God made them, too, but that we humans are better than them, blahblahblah, you get the picture. We'd still be the center of the universe as far as the religious are concerned, regardless of the evidence proving the contrary.”

“I actually wasn't be sarcastic. I don't think there's anything inherently bad or wrong with being "objectified". We're all "objects", either in social situation or in our jobs.

“Several of them have fairly lucrative careers as lawyers -- or did, as of a few years ago.

They have also had an unfortunate amount of success in suing people who've attacked them, and in counter suing people who've brought them to court.
