    I have a Second Amendment right to Moonblast.
  1. Absolutely not acceptable. If someone did this without a VERY good reason, I'd dump them on the spot. It's not materially different to doing something to me without my consent IMO.
  2. I know a lot of people around my age (24) who don't like being paid for because they feel indebted to the person and they have a lot of experience with people trying to call in the return favour in some form later. I think it's especially common for people to try to guilt women like that, so I think it comes down to the level of tolerance for (or enjoyment of) people using favours as a dominance display. Personally, even though I do often get older people to pay for things for me in normal social situations, it's something I have a hard time processing as "a nice thing to do in itself" unless I already trust the person.
  3. I resized the image, two choices. 

  4. 5D, but 6D was a close second.
  5. Or a Romney landslide in 2012 based on unskewed polling. Where's Dean Chambers when you need him?

    I miss the days when these were the most absurd predictions going around here.

  6. Damn you're awesome.

  7. You missed the m in the img tag. Just a friendly heads up. :)

  8. Fairness is a necessary foundation of essentially any system of ethics. Without it, you can't really make a claim to any rule or social system with a stronger basis than "might makes right" -- the only way you can ensure that a rule doesn't exclusively benefit the whims of those in power is to implement a system where any rule has to be universally applicable. It is, basically, the assertion that you have to justify a claim to special treatment or status, and it's an essential component of persuading any two entities to cooperate without using force. If you do away with it, and you're not in a position of absolute power, nobody has any incentive to take your preferences into the slightest consideration. We as a species have found ethics to be a useful concept for mutual advancement, making fairness in turn a meaningful concept. It's also intuitive enough that most children can correctly identify cases where it's present or absent, even if that understanding is much harder to articulate comprehensively. The idea that something has to be "an objective quality of the universe" to be meaningful or useful has so many obvious counterexamples (such as most concepts) that demonstrating it is barely worth the effort.
  9. Well done. I grant you three internet points.

  10. They're not ignorant. the tests and paperwork in the banking business is standardized, federally required, and comprehensive.

  11. I meant I had no sympathy for the defrauding employees supposedly ignorant of the fact they're committing a crime, not the customers being victimised.

  12. Is it possible that they meant to type $250 and got careless?
