How can people be this stupid? You really need to look into an article about a hose that teleports water?
teleports? no no, it simply houses the water in a tiny reservoir - so you get standard hose pressure for up to 1.8 seconds!!!! (then you have to take 15-20 seconds to refill it. So, sure it's incredibly inconvenient and time-consuming - but c'mon Blueettoooottth!!!!)
I will say though that it is kinda annoying when The Onion just has picture headlines with no article.
I think a good 80% of Onion headlines/concepts are genuinely funny, but I can almost never finish an article. Most of their articles seem like wordier versions of the already-complete jokes in the headlines.
I think that was blown out of proportion.
The entire review spent an entire half sentence on the fact that there were no major women or poc roles in the movie and it didn't do so a criticism but just as an aside:
The trio of timelines can be jarring as you figure out how they all fit, and the fact that there are only a couple of women and no lead actors of color may rub some the wrong way.
To me that sound less like a complaint and more like a warning for some people so they know what to expect.
It is like writing a review about a superhero movie and mentioning as an aside that comic book adaptations aren't everyone's cup of tea.
The review itself calls the movie "excellent".
I would also like to add that there actually were people of colour involved in the Battle of France around the time the movie takes place. Troops from French-Morroco did participate in the Battle of France and while the German invaders did accept the surrender of French troops (and the British ones who did not make it to Dunkirk) in large numbers the African troops fighting for France often weren't given that option especially if they were captured by the SS.
This post has generated a lot of responses and demonstrated to me once again to stay out of the way when true believers in some ideology are feuding. It was never my intention to take any sort of side in this Nazis vs SJW thing that appears to be going on here. I don't particularly like either extreme end of the political spectrum and feel equally motivated when I see someone stating a politically motivated untruth to correct them. Usually I try to resist that impulse to not get dragged into this nonsense.
This time I failed an I am sorry for that.
I will try to see to it that it won't happen again.
All I wanted to point out was that the article this post was working so hard to get upset about was quite a lot less offensive and worthy of upset in its original.
Apparently quite a lot of people have misunderstood this correction of fact to be some sort of attempt to take sides in a battle that is mostly going on in their small little minds.
For the record. I think that it should be obvious that a historical accurate movie about an era would reflect demographic makeup of the people in that event. I also think that unless someone has some incredible hangups they should not be prevented from enjoying a movie and identify with character even though they do not share their race/gender/religion/nationality. I also think that trigger warnings that there won't be many black people or women in a movie about a battle where neither of those were involved much is a very silly idea.
Non of that changes anything about the fact that people appear to be desperate about making what was almost a non-issue in some sort of giant attack on their values just for the purpose of getting angry about this largely imaginary attack.
This is silly and I really don't want to be involved in that sort of discussion.
So you're saying the title is essentially "click bait?"
It's not that - it's these anti-SJW snowflakes needing to feel offended about something so they can blame the world for hurting their poor little feelings.
Everyone's a sensitive snowflake. Maybe people should stop trying to politicize fucking everything for once.
Doesn't it happen just once rather than every 1000th year? Next year, the sum will be 2018. Either way, it seems pretty mundane.
Fools this only happens every 500rd year
It only happens once because in 1000 years it'll be 3017
My Grandma Shared the Obi-Wan Jesus Photo.
Obviously self posted, everyone knows if you get access to someone else facebook, the only thing that should ever be posted is a nice, simple....I LOVE COCK
I always see, "I'm gay"
Screw the "im gay" "love cock"... try what I've deemed the Deep Like.
Just go deep into random/not random girls albums and like a couple of (ideally risque) photos. FB user's account has no idea that it's been done, but chaos might ensue later
I'd totally still wear that...
No, no, it's commemorating the band Asia for their hit song "Africa." That song was written by America and later covered by Europe.
The dumber the shirt, the better it is
Makes it a lot more fun to wear it
How about "places where you shouldn't put your penis" for $200, please?
Just thought I would translate this for you guys:
I just want the attention of being pregnant and once the child is born I'll make it someone else's responsibility till a situation arises that I can benefit for some sort of personal gain.
Why would you want to endure 9 months of hell for no reason?
The attention. And it sounds like she would only go for about 5 months of it, then hit "reset."
I want to start a reverse conspiracy theory about vaccines to encourage paranoid people to take them.
"Don't you know all that anti vaccine stuff is written by big pharma? They realized they weren't making enough money off of vaccines, so they want you to not take them so you'll pay through the nose when you actually get smallpox."
Do you think that Anti-Vaxxers are just really scared of needles and are too chicken to admit it, so they just invent some crap about the vaccines being unsafe as an excuse not to get them?
Haha that might just work!
I probably fear needles more than anything else and I still get my shots.
maybe if he had spelled the whole word out. employers h8 laziness.
There's a follow up article on dailymail today where he claims he's turned down over 45 job offers since his dilemma went viral.
"I am just waiting for the right one to come about."
And in regards to tattoo removal:
"I am just working out a date to get it taken off - which sucks because it is going to hurt"
He does say he needs a car to get to one of these 45 job offers, but something tells me he's holding out for a management position.
If he can, I hope it only comes out the non-tattooed parts of his face
So you’re telling me that if I put a stupid tattoo on my face, I can get 45 job offers?
Well the top is BHPs Escondida mine in Chile..... it's a copper mine
Ty u/GiornaGuirne for the correction.
Yeah I was about to say. Especially considering- lithium isn't mined at all. It's a goddamn salt that comes from goddamn lakes. There is no digging involved.
EDIT: Yes, I get it, there are some lithium mines in ass backwards countries (like Australia). However, spodumene mining only accounts for roughly 10% of global production. Also, the image above is not a spodumene mine. It is a copper mine.
"Let me base the environmental impact by the way it looks".
Lithium mines are ugly therefore fuck immigrants. Damn I wasn't trained for this level of thinking.
Isle of view.
You have to say ti out loud for it to make sense.
Dinner's on me.
Want to fuck?
Fist me daddy
