WhyteRaven74: skullkrusher: crap you're right. I thought Benito was one. Turns out Stalin actually WAS one... according to Wiki at least

I always have fun with generalissimo cause it can be translated as highest general, but it can also be translated as "most general". And why would you call someone most general? Doesn't exactly sound like something to make them stand out ;)


Praise our dear leader! Most average of all!

GleeUnit: jim32rr: Looking forward to seeing Bill Ayers in handcuffs with a few billy club contusions administered by Chicago's finest

wut


It's like this:

Ever since cable news became infotainment on all channels the line has blurred more and more between entertainment television and "The News." At this point folk like GleeUnit, who watch Fox News almost as religiously as they watched GI Joe when they were kids want what most little kids want, more violence. They want to see "bad guy fall down go boom hee hee." Who is the bad guy? Well since kiddo watches Fox News the bad guys are the liberals, and Bill Ayers is a liberal so he needs to fall down go boom.

So in his mind, like some cartoon villain Ayers is supposed to appear at the protest, commit some cartoonishly incompetent act of evil, and get savagely beaten by the police.

The Occupiers have a 16% approval rating. That's what I'm getting at. But labeling me a troll is just so much easier than actually considering a different opinion.

/If only Congress had an approval rating that high.

If you don't want to be called a troll you shouldn't say trollish things.

Such as?

Saying 16% without any context. No link, nothing.

If you're talking about Christian Reynolds who lives down the street, you're totally right about him. That guy is a dick.

150 decibels can cause actual ear injuries, not just pain. I hope the several hundred million in lawsuits that a single use of the thing could easily create is worth it.

OSHA's occupational exposure limit for sound, for instance, is 90 dB. That's for an 8-hour day, and every additional 5 dB cuts the allowed exposure time in half. NIOSH, the other major safety standard, allows 8 hours at 85 and halves allowed exposure every 3 dB.

So NIOSH allows for 11 minutes of exposure before legally forbidden exposure and OSHA allows for 20. Technically this is for ambient workplace noise, but these are the national standards that the federal government uses, and in terms of suppressing a crowd you're going to exceed that pretty fast, so basically there's not a court in the world that's going to let you get away with that.

//There's also the issue that the sonic crowd control doesn't really do anything besides piss people off severely and is thus kinda counterproductive. There's a reason these didn't even make the military's equipment list even though the US military buys everything down to homeopathic magnets.

halfof33: Greek default leads to Euro crisis, leads to depression, leads to, what?


Austerity measures don't work. And the Greek economy isn't particularly big and it's flawed anyways. The trick isn't to go "OMG iif Greece defaults we're doomed!" the thing is to go "Ok, if Greece does default, how can be ameliorate the consequences? And also, what if we just change the terms of their debt?".

halfof33: Headso: If nothing else the occupy movement is great for pissing off right wing tards that never expose themselves to views not their own, the poutrage from the usual mongoloids is in this thread is but a small fraction of the total temper tantrums they cause. so that's nice...

LULZ! IRONY! Do you ever read your wildly butthurt posts prior to accusing other people of being butthurt?

By the way, sport, I gotta live with the shiat bags this week.


Well, if the shiat bags wouldn't hold their summit in Chicago, the protesters wouldn't have a reason to come here.,

Is there any other way to describe the fringe rapists, scatologists, and anarchists that have hijacked the Occupy movement?

Don't forget the 9/11 truthers.

Also, that is an insane amount of sound, if they use it at full power people will lose their hearing.


What?

Thought my sentence was pretty clear/concise, wipe the teargas from your eyes and try again


I'm looking forward to seeing Dick Cheney raped with a cactus. That sentence is clear and concise. But it also has nothing to do with the thread.

p the boiler: This should be a wild weekend in Chicago - I think staying at home makes sense, but I really want a first hand view of what is going on - on the other hand I would prefer to not get blasted with a sound cannon.

/At least I get to work from home on Friday and Monday since my building will basically be on lockdown


I work downtown. They told us we can work from home that day but I think it's going to be too much fun. I plan on getting teargassed over my lunch break.
