If you had stopped this comment at the second sentence it would have been hilarious.

The next sentence is "I thought it was obvious [that he didn't say this] given the context." Accusing me of trying to pass off my own ideas as someone else's is just false. Look at my post history, I use that title style for basically every gif I make.

The real problem here is that Carl Sagan is a very, very respected voice of reason and people don't like that I disrespected his legacy in this manner. I get it, I really do. That's why I apologized.

The fact is, if I used Seth Rogan and titled the gif the very same way, no one would give two shits even though technically, I'm putting words in Seth Rogans mouth now.

It is absolutely the source material I chose.

It won't be manipulated. It will disappear. Every thread that becomes too visible that is against an agenda they support will be gone. You won't be lied to. You will be blind and deaf. The store won't have a misleading sign on it, the roads leading to it will be gone.

The missing the fucking point in this thread is beyond Poe's law, it's absolutely ridiculous.

Well, I wanted people to know how fast the deadline was approaching without even clicking the link. I'm sure there's a better way but... this is what I came up with

This thought crossed my mind as I was making it. I have a great respect for Carl Sagan and hope that because he died long before these net neutrality issues, it will be obvious he never said this.

Only motive here is to bring up an issue I find important in an entertaining way and in no way is it to attempt to sound smarter.

EDIT: Information won't be manipulated. It will disappear. Everything that becomes too visible that is against an agenda they support will be gone. You won't be lied to. You will be blind and deaf. The store won't have a misleading sign on it that you can all argue about, the roads leading to the store will be gone.

The missing the fucking point in this thread is beyond Poe's law, it's absolutely ridiculous. I'm sorry I used every ones hero, I genuinely thought it was obvious given all the context. I'm an idiot.

I hope my horrible attempt here doesn't go completely in vain. If you care about this issue please visit this link. https://www.battleforthenet.com/

We still have work to do guys, I hope we come together again like we have so many times before.

Call congress and tell them to vote against slashing Net Neutrality rules. https://www.battleforthenet.com/

Louis CK Apologizes by CheesyMouseDisaster in videos

Yea, seriously, grow up and find a new one.

Poor Louis CK by HobbitFoot in AdviceAnimals

[–]Lukabob 13 points14 points  (0 children)

The other part of this I feel should be questioned is the exactness. 20 years ago? They tell this story like a stenographer is watching audio video evidence.

Does anyone here have any idea how unreliable human memory is? Half the population thinks there was a movie called Shazam staring sinbad. Or was it Shaq?

Anyway, the point is there are a whole bunch of subtleties in words or events that could change the whole perspective. Maybe the girls were drunk and encouraged him? If he did have power, maybe they knew it and thought they could use him to further their careeres. It's not impossible. Idk. It just freaks me out how vauge a story can be and yet so many people will just take it as absolute fact. Wait til it's you in the hot seat on something that's potentially twisted against you, even if the accuser isn't malicious, just wrong.

There was actually a Louis ck bit about how he thought a gay man was always hitting on him and he hated that gay guy for it for years and years. Then, he was talking to his friend about that guy and as his friend asked him questions and probed him about how the gay guy was hitting on him, it slowly turned out that he just perceived it that way and that the whole story was just "once there was a gay man".

Actually, it's kind of frightening

Mobile users, type "I was born" and let your predictive text continue. What is your origin story? by Frioley in AskReddit

[–]Lukabob 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lol I have never seen a full 5 minutes of that show without laughing at something

You must understand, tastes between humans vary a bit and if IASIP isn't instantly fucking hilarious. Maybe try looking forward to when they got even better and see if that does it for ya

I'd recommend jumping into season 4 or 5. The middle seasons (at least IMHO) is where all the legendary shit is. Some greatness in the newer seasons too.

TIL that "shooting fish in a barrel" is considered easy because the bullet impact causes the water pressure in the barrel to change suddenly, killing every fish instantly. by tripwyre83 in todayilearned

[–]Lukabob 19 points20 points  (0 children)

The saying is clearly referring to using a bow and arrow to hunt for fish.

I think you misunderstood the saying. Fish is a band and a barrel is stagehand slang for the part of the stage the performers stand on.

It's easy to shoot someone in those locations with a slingshot.

Hmmm, I'd take "this sucks, go die" over "you know what, I think you'd be better off focusing your time on something else, art may not be your thing ya know?"

Sometimes polite answers kill you on a whole other level.
