THE CRINGE-WORTHY INTERNET THREAD

Recommended Posts

Life allows no one to "win", in that sense, we're all losers. Also, one can't be a "loser", if there's nothing to "win". Perhaps you could say that "success" in life is to have lived a life YOU wanted while keeping your sanity, which is obviously a highly subjective matter. I'd say, if you can't live the life you wanted for reasons that are outside of your control, then you can at least keep your sanity, which I'd also consider a success, and playing games is one way of doing it.

CLEVELAND - A Cleveland radio station has stopped playing “Baby It's Cold Outside" this holiday season after it says listeners voiced concern about the song’s predatory undertones amid the “Me Too” movement.

WDOK Christmas 102.1 pulled the song from its around-the-clock rotation of Christmas music this week after receiving a call from a listener who suggested it is inappropriate in 2018.

The call-and-response song written in the 1940s includes a woman singing that she has to leave a man’s house as he tries to lure her to stay.

In the song, the female sings “I really can’t stay,” to which the man responds, “but baby, it’s cold outside.”

Other lyrics include the woman singing “say, what’s in this drink?” and “I simply must go… the answer is no.”

“It wasn't really our decision. It's the decision of our listeners,” WDOK midday host Desiray told WJW, noting that the Christmas lineup is decided by the station’s listeners.

The station said it posted a poll about the song on its website and a clear majority of respondents supported the decision to remove the song from the station’s lineup.

Poll results were not visible on the station's website. However, a poll on the station's Facebook page showed that among more than 600 votes by Thursday night, 92% of respondents favored playing the song while just 8% felt it was inappropriate.

“People might say, ‘oh, enough with that #MeToo,’ but if you really put that aside and listen to the lyrics, it's not something I would want my daughter to be in that kind of a situation,” Desiray said. “The tune might be catchy, but let's maybe not promote that sort of an idea.”

Cleveland Rape Crisis Center President and CEO Sondra Miller said the organization supports the decision.

“I think it's taking a 2018 lens on a song that was written a very long time ago,” she said, adding that the move reflects evolving values.

Societal norms were different when the song was written. An unmarried woman staying at a man’s house was scandalous, even if she wanted to.

In the song, the woman expresses concern about what others may think of her spending the night, as the man tries to convince her to stay.

While some might view the song and its lyrics as a playful, coy back-and-forth from another time, Miller said it may have a different meaning to a rape survivor.

“It really pushed the line of consent,” Miller said. “The character in the song is saying ‘no,’ and they're saying well, ‘does no really mean yes?’ and I think in 2018 what we know is consent is ‘yes’ and if you get a ‘no,’ it means ‘no’ and you should stop right there.”

Miller said the song is an example of the rape culture in which we live, and the first step to preventing sexual violence is to change that.

Here are the full lyrics:

I really can't stay (but baby, it's cold outside)
I've got to go away (but baby, it's cold outside)
This evening has been (been hoping that you'd drop in)
So very nice (i'll hold your hands, they're just like ice)
My mother will start to worry (beautiful what's your hurry?)
My father will be pacing the floor (listen to the fireplace roar)
So really I'd better scurry (beautiful please don't hurry)
But maybe just a half a drink more (put some records on while I pour)
The neighbors might think (baby, it's bad out there)
Say what's in this drink? (no cabs to be had out there)
I wish I knew how (your eyes are like starlight now)
To break this spell (i'll take your hat, your hair looks swell)
I ought to say, no, no, no sir (mind if I move in closer?)
At least I'm gonna say that I tried (what's the sense in hurtin' my pride?)
I really can't stay (oh baby don't hold out)
But baby, it's cold outside
I simply must go (but baby, it's cold outside)
The answer is no (but baby, it's cold outside)
Your welcome has been(how lucky that you dropped in)
So nice and warm (look out the window at this dawn)
My sister will be suspicious (gosh your lips look delicious)
My brother will be there at the door (waves upon the tropical shore)
My maiden aunts mind is vicious (gosh your lips are delicious)
But maybe just a cigarette more (never such a blizzard before)
I've gotta get home(but baby, you'd freeze out there)
Say lend me a coat(it's up to your knees out there)
You've really been grand (i thrill when you touch my hand)
But don't you see? (how can you do this thing to me?)
There's bound to be talk tomorrow (think of my lifelong sorrow)
At least there will be plenty implied (if you got pnuemonia and died)
I really can't stay (get over that old out)
Baby, it's cold
Baby, it's cold outside

Next thing you know they will ban Gone with the Wind because it had black servants in a demeaning role. that or some other classics that haven't "aged" well.  Instead of accepting it for something from a different time. If they are so sensitive.. use it as a teaching tool for Christ sakes... don't ban it.

While radio stations are banning content for creepy content that SJW cringe from and have nightmares because ... you know... art is terifying and cause the end of the world.

SJWs are hard at work... These people are such a joke. The comments below the tweet are fairly entertaining though.

A pretty common / fanous joke about how smart kids are.

Spoiler
first-grade teacher, Ms. Williams, was having trouble with one of her students. The teacher asked, "Jerry, what's your problem?"
 
Jerry answered, "I'm too smart for the 1st grade. My sister is in the 3rd grade and I'm smarter than she is! I think I should be in the 5rd grade!"
 
Ms. Williams had had enough. She took Jerry to the principal's office.
 
While Jerry waited in the outer office, the teacher explained to the principal that this was an exceptionally bright kid. The principal told Ms. Williams he would give the boy a test. If he failed to answer any of his questions he was to go back to the 1st grade and behave. She agreed.
 
Jerry was brought in and the conditions were explained to him and he agreed to take the test.
 
Principal: "What is 3 x 3?"
 
Jerry: "9."
 
Principal: "What is 6 x 6?"
 
Jerry: "36."
 
And so it went with every question the principal thought a 3rd grader should know.
 
The principal looks at Ms. Williams and tells her, "I think Jerry can go to the 3rd grade"
 
Ms. Williams says to the principal, "Let me ask him some questions."
 
The principal and Jerry both agreed.
 
Ms. Williams asks, "What does a cow have four of that I have only two of?"
 
Jerry, after a moment: "Legs."
 
Ms. Williams: "What is in your pants that you have but I do not have?"
 
The principal wondered why would she ask such a question!
 
Jerry replied: "Pockets."
 
Ms. Williams: "What does a dog do that a man steps into?"
 
Jerry: "Pants."
 
Ms. Williams: "What starts with a C, ends with a T, is hairy, oval, delicious and contains thin, whitish liquid?"
 
Jerry: "Coconut."
 
The principal sat forward with his mouth hanging open.
 
Ms. Williams: "What goes in hard and pink then comes out soft and sticky?"
 
The principal's eyes opened really wide and before he could stop the answer, Jerry replied, "Bubble gum."
 
Ms. Williams: "What does a man do standing up, a woman does sitting down and a dog does on three legs?"
 
Jerry: "Shake hands."
 
The principal was trembling.
 
Ms. Williams: "What word starts with an 'F' and ends in 'K' that means a lot of heat and excitement?"
 
Jerry: "Firetruck."
 
The principal breathed a sigh of relief and told the teacher, "Put Jerry in the fifth-grade, I got the last seven questions wrong."

I got all of the questions wrong... lol

The things people will do to land a job at Bethesda...

https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/news/13846

If you can't be bothered to read the comments on this particular modder. He removed all his NSFW work because he was denied a spot for Creation Club because of it. So he's cleaning up his portfolio or whatever and trying to get good with Bethesda for a second chance. His NSFW content is no longer available. At least not on Nexus and by him. I guess his work is uploaded somewhere else. Probably LL.

He might as well go get his legs waxed just to impress Bethesda while he's at it.

They need to get off the fucking gas.  Bethesda was never going to hire him.  Creation Club gerbil wheel; yes.  Job; no.  And who in their right mind wants to work for Bethesda unless you're upper management?  It's not a dream job; it turns your hobby into the salt mine from Hell.

Don't know if any of you remember the time when I mentioned the retarded Bioware fanboys who claimed that it was *normal* for Mass Effect (or Dragon Age Origins) to cause extremely high CPU usage (up to 100%) even when you're still on the initial menu screen? Let's have a look at it once more and see if we can find the cause...

ME_001.thumb.png.5a6ad973a2270b96e31468e2dd5d5a5a.png

ME_002.png.d44c2e32e60f9c87c4945af4fa7074cc.png

The game seems to run a SecuROM related thread (despite the fact that it was supposed to be removed) which takes up 50% of CPU cycles.

These screenshots are taken from the Steam's version of Mass Effect. I don't currently have DA:O installed and I wonder if the situation is the same. I bet it is.

Mind you, I had to do an ALT+TAB to take these screenshots and as you can see, the game continues to run at full speed even when its window is not currently active (not focused). This is probably a proof that either these games weren't designed for PCs in mind or whoever programmed it wasn't very bright.
