Well.... at least they treat the people in those countries with the same respect and dignity that they show to their own.

Internetaristocrat is back with a doozy.  I love it when he skips the sarcasm and goes straight for the throat.
And yeah, filing false DMCAs and other censorship? Congratulations gaming media, you've officially sunk to the level of YouTube Creationists like VenomfangX--the same people you no doubt would have mocked a few years ago.

If those of us who opt to eat meat were even half as douchey as ethical vegans.

So a while back, I posted this train wreck of an article:  http://www.cracked.com/quick-fixes/fat-officially-incurable-according-to-science/ in fail quotes.  After a while I decided to make an account over at cracked.com and post a response to it.  Now, the comments on it seem to be screwed up are only showing the replies posted on the day the article was published.  I figure I'll post this here because I don't want my comment to be wasted:

Quote from: Yours Truly
--Scientific articles/studies that disagree with what you said they said.

--A blatant SJW ("THIN PRIVILEGE!") bias.

--Verbal gymnastics ("fat cells are shrunk! Not removed!"--No shit, Sherlock.  It's the same with muscles when they grow unless you're a drug user)

--Ignores the HUGE possibility of selection bias (If I lost that weight, I'd just move on with my damn life. Why go into a registry?)

--Subject to vague nonsense (How long until you can say you "kept the weight off successfully?" 5 years? 20 years? 50 years? What if you go into bodybuilding and gain mostly muscle instead of fat?)

--Ignores obvious financial incentives.  What's that, Wong? You mean a company like Weight Watchers (which was where the 97% figure came from.  it was NOT "all dieters"--nice cherry picking), people who make exercise machines, and those who sell bullshit supplements have people yo-yo dieting so they'll keep paying them money until the sun explodes? SAY IT AIN'T SO!

Yup, this whole article is obvious troll/click bait.

Dear "Thin privilege" fucktards,
Eat less, move more and stop bitching about your "hormonal/glandular problems" and "bad genetics." Grow the fuck up and stop making excuses. It's one thing to lie to yourself & rationalize and even to say you're hot (protip: you're not), but stop lying to the rest of us who are in the process of overcoming that stupid crap and making the permanent lifestyle changes needed to get lean & active to maximize our health, longevity, & quality of life.

speaking of which: how is your weight loss quest going? hope it is going well.

Thanks for the encouragement. :) The last month or two was kinda slow if not stopped, but I've since buckled down.  Overall I've lost about 60 lbs.  So an average of about 8 lbs lost per month.

I haven't watched, but my only turn off (from the title at least) was the "conservative/libertarian" bit...folks, conservatives are NOT libertarians.  Can we PLEASE put this myth to rest already. -.-u

I thinkbe libertarian/conservative he meant those who are at least economic libertarians or are for free markets.

From the comments:
