    TheKDub reacted to Vishera in Store Wars: WinRAR strikes back - WinRAR files DMCA claim against pirates   
    I have always used WinRAR,still using it,
    It's pretty convenient for compressing and decompressing data.

    TheKDub reacted to TetraSky in How to Run a ".jar" File?   
    To be fair, Java hasn't been useful for the majority of people outside of minecraft for a long time now. I sure haven't reinstalled Java since I stopped playing it... It's just a massive security issue that is never going to be fixed. (fix one flaw, two more flaws shows up)

    When it's the middle of a stand up comedy routine, yes. "Roasting" audience members used to be a common occurrence. It's not like the guy was outing him as a fraud as trying to deplatform him.

    It's here, ladies and gentlemen, freedom of speech and expression officially gone in Canada. A Canadian comedian has been taken to court and fined a rather large sum over a joke.
    This leads to a monumental moment of absolutely insane stupidity and hypocrisy of the "freedom" of Canadians;
    Which is just... fantastic. MWAH. Beautiful.
     
    Originally he was also supposed to pay $7,000 to the mother of the "victim," which the courts denied, since she wasn't directly influenced or mentioned by the joke. At the very least if you make a joke the audiences family members aren't entitled to emotional compensation.
     
    Somehow making a joke is now actually impeding on peoples equality.
     
     
    He intends on not paying it and preferring prison time instead, and plans on taking the case to the Canadian Supreme Court.
     
    Meanwhile various news articles and Nazi Pug Man have reported on this moment of inclusiveness and expressive freedom.

    As a personal note, I remember getting into an argument not too long ago about how dangerous this kind of thing was where you can be fined or jailed for calling someone a name or saying a joke they don't like, and I was lambasted as people swore this would never happen, like it did to Nazi Pug Man, who was both arrested and fined, and now any job he manages to get the media sniffs out and promptly ensures he gets fired, so he's basically unemployed and unemployable now.

    Dude what do you want me to say? If you want me to be gut-wrenchingly honest, it sounds like you're seeking sympathy and throwing around your disability so people don't argue with you and feel bad for you. Yeah, I'm sorry, that fucking sucks, but it doesn't change anything.
     
    You clearly came here with the intent of telling people that it offended you for whatever reason that may be, and that you think that they should shape their media around your sensitivity, and ideals of censorship. Well that's not the case here, no matter your physical situation. And while the term "offensive" is an objective matter, the comment wait in no way shape or form could be perceived as offensive unless you're purely looking for an argument, or are living in a bubble.
     
    "A thousand things sting everyday" for everybody. Everyone has their own issues and problems, whether they be physical, mental, or emotional. I don't think your particular situation gives you the right to dictate what he can and can't say on a free speech platform. Especially something as mild, and frankly, not even remotely offensive as that.

    My aunt and nieces are all autistic. On thanksgiving i was helping her put together a play set and i kept having to change bits because the damn thing used different torx screws all over the place.
     
    Her exact words "this is retarded. What the shit were they thinking".
     
    Ive personally never met someone who cares.
     
    No idea why anyone would let a word that isnt directed at them hurt them. Makes no sense.

    Lemme give you my perspective.
     
    I have autism, tourettes, ADHD, dyslexia, clinical depression, and severe anxiety. I've been to three psychiatrists for all of this. 
     
    You wanna know what I though of when he said that? I giggled. I took it as word play and thought it was funny. I'm also the same person who does not care about the "R" word. I'll use retarded alot, and it pisses me off when people say "don't say that!" I say "fuck off, it's what I got." I never call an individual "retarded" but I do call actions and objects the latter. If there's one thing I've learned through nothing but experience: If you can't laugh at yourself, you can't help yourself.
     
    Another example, I dated a girl who had been previously raped. Seeing R34 images would put her into a PTSD episode. However, when having a conversation with someone, she could play certain things off as a joke, or joke about sex stuff in general. She learned joking about it helped her to cope.
     
    I'm gonna be real here. If you don't have a mental disability, shut the fuck up. Hardly anyone with mental disabilities takes offense to the stuff that people who white knight us do.

    You literally said what he said is condescending, that "it stung", and that he shouldn't say it anymore. If you don't want it to be "tiring" don't say stupid shit. 
     
    EDIT: I'm not saying your opinion is invalid or stupid. I'm saying that you're complaining about something pretty rediculious and now, you're butthurt that people are calling you out.

    You can't be serious... Now you're triggered by the phrase "politically correct"?!
     
    What in the world are people supposed to say? You're complaining about how these widely used and socially accepted phrases are upsetting you, yet you absolutely fail to provide any example of what terminology you'd rather have people use. 
     
    "This hurt me, consider changing it."
     
    TO WHAT?!

    TheKDub reacted to Vitamanic in Linus office upgrade video problematic   
    I'm not even sure what the politically correct term is anymore, I don't think anybody really knows.
     
    You can't say "disabled person", can't say "differently abled" now apparently, what is anyone supposed to say? 
     
    I've heard "person who has a disability" is the newly approved version, but that's absurd. It's not really grammatically intuitive and goes against all of the other ways we apply descriptors to humans. We don't say "male who possesses Asian DNA", we say "Asian male" and nobody seems to care. Why is this different?

    YouTube is a platform where people can speak openly, and objectively. What he said wasn't ill-natured by any definition of the word, and I think if anybody is even remotely offended by what he said, then they need to do a little soul-searching and open their mind a little.

    Never buy a chair without sitting in it first. What's confortable for one person might not be for you. Go to an office furiniture store and try some out for yourself.
