Re: Three Lefts Make a Right, and Three Rights Make a Left

I’d wager some of the greatest inventions were derived from logical incoherency. I’d have to think about it for a moment but I’m trying to rip a bandaid off my leg right now, so all I know right now...

Re: Three Lefts Make a Right, and Three Rights Make a Left

I’d say it’s one of the best things about being human. That propensity for madness. It is part of what has driven us. I mean, people connected globally with screens of information. That’s just...

Re: Three Lefts Make a Right, and Three Rights Make a Left

Yeah, but humans are not wired to operate that way. You can easily say there’s no arrival at truth and assert a strong claim at the same time. We certainly have the ability to rise above this trait,...

Re: Three Lefts Make a Right, and Three Rights Make a Left

I think thatís kinda the point with mass shootings. Itís an attack against society and systems of power. So their targets are ones of everyday normalcy.

Re: Three Lefts Make a Right, and Three Rights Make a Left

Violent video games have been shown in countless studies to have little to no effect on a personís propensity for violence. But there is a risk, an unexamined one, that communities built around...

Re: Three Lefts Make a Right, and Three Rights Make a Left

I'd wager that many of them would still be alive, depending on their choice of method. The only majorly successful method is a gun. Just about every other method has success rates that are lower than...

So your argument is that an individual can kill just as many people, if not more, with a truck? This assumes they have access to a cargo truck, a job that gives them passage in an area closed to...

I'm positive. That's an image from 2007. Pre-London and Westminster bridge attacks (2017) and even those attacks didn't have near as many fatalities as you claim is possible to achieve. They now have...

Re: Three Lefts Make a Right, and Three Rights Make a Left

I've been at Fenway Park after it has let out, and there's no way you could take out 50 people in 30 seconds. Whilst I see your point, it doesn't account for the fact that we design pedestrian heavy...

I just thought the whole thing was hysterical. You making a big deal out of nothing. Digging a deep hole for no reason. I prefer to chew the fat. I’m not all about that word salad.
