Too true to discuss
« on: April 19, 2014, 12:36:12 AM »
I could have put this video in one of the discussion threads or something, but I think that it stands on its own and should just be enjoyed for the music and history.

NSFW if your boss doesn't like really blood cartoons.

Crap, why can't i ever embed youtube videos? Here, click on the link if you must. Tips on how to do it would be appreciated. I used to do it all the time, but now 'm a total failure.

PS: if someone else knows how to correctly embed it, be my guest. Please.

It isn't true that non-existent gods can't do anything. For instance, they were able to make me into an atheist.

It doesn't embed if it has an "https" on the front of the url, because the s denotes a secure connection.

Just remove the "s". It will show the same video. I do it all the time:

All I did was remove the "s".

I only have a filter for people who do not consistently beg to be belittled, ridiculed, insulted, and demeaned.

Yes, Google has taken to encrypting all transactions even when you aren't logged into a Google account, so just remove the S in the HTTPS and magically the video will appear.

Well done.

It's funny, I've argued this point in the past, and it always devolves into the "real" reason for the bloodshed, as opposed to the land-grabbing depicted in the video. I used to say my faith is in humanity, but now I'm not so sure. Of course, we see some of this behavior in other animals, but nowhere near the scale, and certainly for reasons that are more strongly linked with survival.

Humans have a unique way of creating abstract ideas and attempting to make them real. Embarrassing.
