Are you fucking kidding me? If I broke into the room he would have killed me. And I don’t mean that metaphorically. A much stronger man, with enough panic fueled adrenaline coursing through his veins to wake up a coma victim would have come at me with intent to kill due to his incorrect but sincere belief that in doing so he would be saving his own life.

i speak with complete sincerity when I say it’s pretty likely he would have killed me.

no I turned around, told them to call the code to get more staff to open the door, then began lightly pushing on the door and jiggling the key so he would spend his time bodily holding it shut and not improvising some way to hurt himself.

Of course I was kidding, even I'm not that stupid. Though I must say that I'm confused as to why you had to tell them to do what they should have done in the first place.

That said to keep this on topic please clarify: was the Nurse, the Tech, or the Patient the Thot in this scenario?

Just be honest and say why you can't

social situations regarding feelings and interest are always going to be awkward, best to just be honest and upfront about it

Assuming you have a good reason, people will -generally- understand

January 30th, 2019, 08:59 AM
Well, without really knowing any context, I'd tell you to say thanks for the offer and that you're flattered but you can't/won't because of -insert honest reason here-
stay friendly during and of course after this as well, assuming you want things to stay as is.

you can evade it if you prefer but that guarantees awkwardness, which you probably don't want.

Just, don't be an ass about it, you got this

Keeping in mind that this advice comes from someone whose social graces can best be described as "what social graces?", why can't you accept the offer? Clarifying that it's just dinner, if neccesary.

Johnson said, “I can say things that are quite humorous and not smile about it and it leads people to think about what I said.”

“Often, I’ve been known to use humor as I deliver a message. That’s just one of the gifts that I think that I have,” Johnson deadpanned.

“I’ve been around long enough in this district for voters to know that if Hank said Guam is in danger of capsizing, they would know precisely that I have a sense of humor.”

I can already (somewhat) play the guitar, but it feels like all the songs I want to play recently have no guitar arranges anywhere and the ones I find are for the electric guitar or steelstring. Plus there's a ton of "play music on the PC" programs that use the keyboard.

Maybe what I need is a new Guitar Hero instead.

It just wasn't practical to move a solid wood piano & the newer house ended up being strangely smaller even though it was technically bigger. It sucks because I loved that thing & it was really old. It was also out of tune but I liked how it sounded.

So it turns out the new drawing tablet I bought uses hdmi for display. Problem is that I have an old laptop. Gonna try an adapter; just hope I bought the right direction. X.x; Can't afford to buy a new laptop/pc.

I'm guessing you're being sarcastic, but yes. I had to deal with this noise a lot more than I could ever have wanted due to modding a decently large RWBY group and you would not believe the amount of shit that flew around. If half of those supposedly documented allegations were true, the man should have been clapped in irons. And since it seems nobody (far as I know) has actually stepped up to a court of law to make them "charges" instead of "allegations", my personal take on this is that the man is either innocent or at least not misbehaving to the degree that would deserve literally destroying his livelihood.

That said, I could really use never having to hear about that case again, thanks. I still kinda like RWBY, but I positvely HATE RWBY fans.

I'll personally keep to my opinion that he never outright banged a fan who wasn't into it, or was underage, but it's undeniable with photographic evidence that he was touchy-feely in an obviously inappropriate way with his younger fans. According to co-workers he was much the same in a professional environment. He may not have come up and ever grabbed their tits or traced his fingers along their asscracks or something, but they all seem to have a story about inappropriate comments or gestures. It's on them if they just want to make it public and get him out of their workplace, or take it under the roof of the law and have it settled there. But for the longest time he was the biggest, hottest name in English voice acting and his clout levels were so high that nobody could get any momentum going.

It's absolutely valid to lose your job if all your coworkers go to the boss and say "he whispered in my ear he wants to lick the sweat off my pubes," and the company is under no obligation to pull out all the evidence they compiled to arrive at the decision to terminate their dealings with him. Unsubstantiated allegations from female congoers were one thing, but at the point where almost ALL of his coworkers, man and woman alike, come out and publicly say "yeah actually it's true he's really creepy and goes over the line with all of us" there's a point where you need to step back and think that playing the unbiased game isn't so wise and enlightened when literally everyone who works with him and has worked with him for a long time is saying it's true.

"Why didn't they say anything earlier" is probably the dumbest question I see related to this stuff. Every time someone gets accused this way (Cosby etc.) people say that and then it turns out to be true. People don't come out right away because it was traumatizing and they wanted to just forget it ever happened and don't relish reliving the experience under the interrogation lights of the public. And even with that said, a lot of people DO come forward anyway but get ignored under said lights, until a critical mass is reached and the scales tip.

And that's the kind of attitude I don't agree with. Understand, first and foremost, I don't give a rat's ass about Mignogna and whether he really is a major creep or not (and including here I've heard about as many stories painting him as an angel as horror stories making him a rampaging pedophile). I really don't. What I DO care about is this ridiculous #metoo movement enabling and encouraging the social lynching of pretty much anyone solely on the basis of mob rule: "If so many people say it, surely it must be true!" Bam, no trial, no FAIR AND EQUAL chance to defend oneself (because good luck being one person standing against the mob, even if you have a PR department-and while Mignogna probably has one, not everyone thus targeted does), skip straight to the execution. Innocent until proven guilty beyond all reasonable doubt is the cornerstone of the modern justice system. Those people just now stepping up to add fuel to the fire, and ESPECIALLY the ones bringing up "evidence" years late, in the best case scenario where they speak the absolute truth? They're accomplices to the crime for not having spoken up until now, same as if they covered up any other crime. And don't give me the "lol the justice system doesn't work he would have gotten away anyway" shit either: It's not perfect, but it's not going to be able to do its job if you don't give it the evidence it needs to function. And if you really distrust it so much, well bad news for you, you might as well quit the country because if the courts don't work then literally nothing else does.

There is the truth, which takes time to determine and which people are not beholden to right from the start. And acting as if rumors are baseless and this was all unwarranted lies is pretty unfair to the accusers. This was thrown at Weinstein accusers, at Cosby accusers and look who ultimately prevailed.

Bollocks. People should be able to judge personality but not as a mob. Mobs have powers similar to the law, but are not beholden to it. At best, if something is debunked, very public apologies and offers to continue their relationship and even pay reparations for it should be mandated. This does zero wrong and ensures accusations cannot be used as bait or fuel for a personal feud, as doing so will have actual repercussions on a person. Sadly, I don't think you can sue a nameless mob. Should technology be available though (I, for one, welcome our new Totalitarian overlords), I'd love to see half of Twitter crowdfunding reparations for someone :p

Anyway, as I said earlier, I'm not going to discuss specific examples. Vic Mignogna is a creep, quote me if you want- I don't give a damn. What I'm trying to do is ring some alarm bells in how much people allow rumours unfounded or at least unconfirmed by any responsible entity, to sway their opinion on matters and people. It's not even just about #metoo and rape allegations, this is but the latest offshoot of a trend that gets more and more alarming in recent years.

tl;dr utilise ur fucking critical thinking be people not sheeple

Oh hey pot, nice to meet you, I'm kettle. Are you also equally stupid?

You could use some of that critical thinking yourself too buddy.

I am not arguing it has... yet.

But I hope if it does, in any other scenario, turn so... and the arguments end up shut down in court, that these companies consider they might have essentially shat on the labor code.

On the bright side... scratch that, he's probably better off Funimation. Sony's going to run it into the ground.

Hypotheticals are nice to argue and nicer to ignore.

You're upset at this not because you fear the rule of law is being upended, you're upset at this because you're scared it could happen to you. Just don't be a creep and have some self-awareness, it's a good life policy. One that Vic McGonagall clearly still lacks.

Close, but not quite. I'm upset not because I fear the rule of law has been upended in this particular case, because for the love of God how many times am I going to repeat that I am NOT TALKING ABOUT THIS INDIVIDUAL CASE, I am upset because it could literally happen to anyone whether they are guilty in the slightest or not.
"Just don't be guilty lol"

Oh, boo-hoo, Cavill made some extremely asinine comments (seriously, if you're equating "walking up to a woman and talking to her" with "rape", you probably should rethink your behaviour toward women) and was criticised for it, big freaking deal. You talk as if he was blacklisted when that's far from what happened.

Quoting someone else here:

"Also, I hate the “due process” or “innocent until proven guilty in a court of law” defense, as this isn’t a criminal matter. One can still see someone as creepy and not want to deal with them if what they did doesn’t rise to the level of outright criminality or whatever. I also despise the accusations of “SJW-ism” (whatever the fuck that means) auto dismissing this as a smear campaign or whatever. I mean, there’s a reason why said rumors over his behavior have persisted for as long as they have. And from what I can tell, telling someone else about being sexually assaulted or harassed or whatever is incredibly difficult, especially if the person being accused is someone high profile. Isn’t that was the whole #metoo movement has proved? And don’t give me any bullshit about gold diggers or false accusations or whatever, seeing so many accusations means you can’t just dismiss them out of hand."

The law is irrelevant here when it comes to companies deciding to remove people due to these sort of allegations.

Going by the above and on other sites, Texas where Funimation is based is an "at-will" state, which means employers don't need criminal/civil cases and can fire people for any reason. Whether Vic had this in his contract is unknown, but I wouldn't bet against him being protected in this case.

All the good ecchi manga are dark these days.

i miss the good old days.

you kids with your goblin Slayers and your berserks and your hippety hop

get off my lawn
There's plenty of non-dark ecchi manga,and some can be considered "good" depending on your definition thereof. And I wouldn't class Goblin Slayer or Berserk as ecchi to begin with.

Don't give crunchy views. Don't give them money. Treat them like Kotaku.

Some-Stuffs' fansubs for far better edited dialogue that doesn't read like a mid-2000s scanlation, and translation correction wherever necessary (apart from correcting copyrighted Stand names, they corrected a mistranslation from the first episode; the sum of lire Buccellati was talking about was rendered a lot smaller in CR's subs and they corrected it to what he was actually saying). If you already use CR, it's good to watch JoJo on there to show that there's interest, but the fansubs are much more worthwhile. Their part 1 and 2 subs aren't anywhere near as well-edited as what they can put out now, but they're still an improvement over CR.

Here's (https://www.diffchecker.com/qs5dEcrB) a comparison for Tonio's episode between CR and Some-Stuffs' DiU bluray release. I would say that overall this one was one of CR's better episodes, but it still had a lot of room for improvement, which is only fair given how fast CR's subs come out, but still.
