Instead, I meant something more along the lines of, "Opposing Views is an utterly meritless black hole of crap, crap so densely packed that even light cannot escape, and the absence of its rampant plagiarism, thoughtless parroting, and empty-headed vapidity from the Fark queue has been a blessed respite that now, sadly, seems to have ended."

No, because "does not approve" bases its negativity upon approval itself, which in essence implies some degree of possible, perhaps subconscious, approval or potential for approval. Such is not the case.

From othe linked Daily Mail article.

The defense told the court that Bimal Patel wanted to kill himself and forced his wife to help.

KVUE reported that defense attorneys presented evidence that cotton balls in Bimal Patel's nose appeared to have been there before he was burned, suggesting he knew he would be set on fire and wanted to mask the smell.

According to India West, Shriya's trial was extended after the court found one of the jury members "drastically inappropriate" during deliberations. That jury member did not show up to continue deliberations on Monday, and needed to be replaced.

That was tantalizing... what was drastically inappropriate? Was it simple overt rampant racism? Misogyny? Or was the guy too busy making flowers to be productive in deliberations?

Also, that is one nasty way to be murdered. Sort of balances out the horrific acid attacks that target women of the region.

Oh, no.  I detected sarcasm.  I believe PN meant the exact opposite of what he posted.  I just can't decide if he meant it is completely full of merit, or if it is completely full of merit and very loose; the bastion of truthful information that comes from it bursts out in a manner not unlike preparation for a colonoscopy.

This Rammstein song came to mind (translated to English of course)! Just substitute 'bathtub' instead of 'bed'.

Wollt ihr das Bett in Flammen sehen? (Do You Want to See the Bed in Flames?)

Do you want to see the bed in flames
do you want to perish in skin and hair
you want to stick the dagger in the sheet as well
you want to also lick the blood from the sword
Ram-stone
You see the crosses on the pillow
You think innocence may kiss you
You believe it would be hard to kill
But where are all of the dead coming from
Ram-stone

Sex is a battle
Love is war
Do you want to see the bed in flames
do you want to perish in skin and hair
you want to stick the dagger in the sheet as well
you want to also lick the blood from the sword

That's how she got away with just arson. "ladies and gentlemen of the jury may I remind you that at no time were any wangs cut off."

Arson? Seriously? "Ok Bimal, I'm just going to be removing the batteries to the fire alarms and covering the sprinklers with bags and setting a fire in this bathtub and if you happen to be in the tub after being invited to take a bath and have a massage, it's your own fault!"
 
2014-03-11 03:40:46 PM  
Seriously. Because if you're an arsonist trying to burn down a home, everyone knows the most effective place to start the fire is in the bathroom because all that flammable porcelain and linoleum will go up like that.

It's also common knowledge that arsonists frequently become so blinded by their pyromania that they fail to notice living human beings who may be relaxing at the very same point where they intend to start their fire.

You cannot cause me to BBQ-rage, for I have lived in South Carolina, and experienced good mustard-based pork. Therefore, I recognize its place. Quite frankly, there is no better sauce for a smoked chicken. That's science.

I have also lived in Kansas, Georgia, Tennessee, and Kentucky. I have had regional 'Q of many kinds, in their specific home region. There is one universal BBQ truth, and this will never, ever let you down:

If you see a middle-aged, somewhat heavyset black dude wearing overalls and a cowboy hat selling BBQ, you should stop and eat it. Because it will be good.

2014-03-11 07:55:35 PM  
Well, I read more through the other links, which explained more. I guess that accounts for some of the hate for Opposing Views (lazy journalism, if you can call it that)...

"Judge David Crain has called in an alternate juror after one of the women on the jury failed to show up to court Monday morning. The foreperson for the jury said the woman appeared to be non-responsive or gave "drastically inappropriate responses" Friday when jurors discussed the case for more than eight hours before they were sent home for the weekend."

The other details are pretty horrific. He's lived here much of his life. He gets into an arranged marriage. Takes a year for the paperwork to complete. She arrives, but by the time she arrives, he's been laid off from his job. She's here a week, sets him on fire. Her defense claims it was assisted suicide. However, the man's own words of "why would she do this?" and the evidence of the burning on the inside of the bathroom door as he fought to break through it (was locked) would indicate otherwise.

Also, she admitted to going through the marriage to make another lover jealous.

This was one cold lady.
