As everyone who's ever been to the warped tour, there are your band booths, your record label booths, and the political awareness booths. Yesterday, during my day long wait for NOFX and Catch 22, i happened upon PETA's booth.

In usual PETA fashion, there was a TV with images of "animal cruelty". As I'm watching this "cruelty" unfold, it cuts to a clip of a man "forcing" a tube down a monkey's nose. now, the monkey doesn't seem to be in any sort of distress, there's a guy petting it, all seems well. then the dude at the booth tells me that they need to stop "testing medical supplies on animals".

I take a look at the hippie with dreadlocks (white by the way), and i ask him "if we're not going to test medication/treatments on animals, what are we going to test them on? there are already too many rights for humans that prohibit using force on them to test these supplies, and nobody wants to voulenteer to test medication that could kill them.
So then he goes on about how scientific analysis could do all this, and blah blah, don't eat meat, blah blah blah, whales and such.

so then i ask why he would consider the monkey with the tube to be cruelty?
He just looks at me like i'm retarded (and while i am, he didn't know this).

so i just said to him "you know, they do this same thing to people every day in hospitals and nursing homes"
and he just sat there looking at me all disgusted until the next patron wandered his direction.

ignoring the bad grammar and spelling, does anyone else find certain angles of PETA to be less like public service announcements and more like world war two propaganda?

I really hate PETA's tactics, but for the record:

he just sat there looking at me all disgusted

He was disgusted with your stupidity, not your ideology. As far as why you're so fucking stupid, it's because you do things like this:


i ask him "if we're not going to test medication/treatments on animals, what are we going to test them on? there are already too many rights for humans that prohibit using force on them to test these supplies, and nobody wants to voulenteer to test medication that could kill them.

You talk a whole lot, and give the impression that you are actually interested in a rebuttal or a conversation, but then:


So then he goes on about how scientific analysis could do all this, and blah blah, don't eat meat, blah blah blah, whales and such.

You rant, rant, rant, and then completely ignore any response.

This is why you should shut the fuck up.

EDIT: I was much harder on you in this post than I meant to be (I won't erase it because I don't want to act like it didn't happen).

The next time you're in that situation though, don't just talk: fucking LISTEN too, or else the whole thing is pointless.

I didn't completely ignore his response, his whole response was basically a one sided half-baked idea that we can just solve all of our problems non-violently, and i'm sure that we can, but we shouldn't need all of these rights and laws to make the world more "peaceful and united" because everything operates a lot more smoothly with governments that don't just hand out everything to citizens. A few changes to communism, and it could easilly become the perfect government.

And yours wasn't?

Yeah! Who cares about positivity! Let's work on making things smooth instead!

if everything is working smoothly, there's less chance of citizens fucking up their own government with their rights and such, AKA, abusing the legal system to earn an easy buck because of some retarded reason (got fat, stubbed toe)
or even sexual harrassment. Sexual harrassment does not exist, just like ADD and ADHD. People need to aknowledge that not everyone is created equal, so we need to stop treating people like they are.

at least agree with me that it's rediculous that someone can sue a company because they were fired because of their gender/weight/race. when in reality, they were just a shitty worker. Every time a black person is arrested, they immediately try to pin it on "because they're black" ignoring that they were stealing a tv and had a bag of crack in their ass. (this is of course, a generalization)

ADD and ADHD are real, you fucking moron. Just because they're over diagnosed doesn't mean that they don't exist. "Sexual harassment does not exist." So, are you Rush Limbaugh or something? Because that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

sexual harassment is an excuse to sue for "pain and suffering" or "emotional damage" a rape victim or someone who witnesses a murder has "emotional damage" someone who got their ass squeezed, doesn't, it's all about money, that's all anything is anymore.

and i've never been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD, i don't see a shrink, and i'm not on any meds, so fuck off

Getting felt up at work, especially when your an adult, should not happen. It's called "morals", you idiot. Yes, some people misuse the system, but to say it doesn't exist because of a few greedy people? That's just plain ridiculous.

Oh, since you haven't been diagnosed, that must mean it doesn't exist. :rolleyes: My sister is a special education teacher and deals with kids like that every day. ADD and ADHD do exist, and in a lot of cases, it really effects the person who has it.

Honsetly, climb out from under your rock. I have no idea how someone as dumb as you could possibly exist. Get educated, you dumbass.

about that, because of all the kids that illegal immigrants are having to stay in the country, my school has the lowest curriculum in the area.

I'm willing to bet there are illegal immigrants who dont' speak English who can form an argument in English better than you can. Keep blaming the immigrants in your school district for your stupidity--we all know it's because your mother dropped you on your head. But it wasn't an accident--she was actually trying to kill you.
