Interesting stuff in Matthew. If every Christian lived as if the book actually mattered, the world would be a much nicer place.

Never actually saw him before. Throw some makeup and a wig on him and he could totally play a live action Astarion

The cool thing about D&D lore is that we’re absolute fucking nerds. BG3 takes place in 1492 DR, and while Honor Among Thieves doesn’t have a canonical date, it’s estimated to take place in the late 1490’s to early 1500’s DR

I actively avoid clicking any videos with horny looking thumbnails, even if I really like the creator. Even still, I get shit like this. What exactly the fuck does this have to do with KSP? Why does google think I wanna see this?

Now I’m embarrassed. Did you plug “what is AMV” into a rapper from Michigan, or a guided missile?

While years is technically correct, we’re at the “decades” mark on amvs

Sometimes this is totally fair, but I think any abbreviation that instantly comes up on google is fair game. IIRC, TIL, AMV, BRB, IRL, IKR, etc.

If it makes you feel better, the oldest AMV is from over 40 years ago

If you’re older than that… Sorry

Can we just collectlively boycott Warner Bros. at this point?

I think it’s safe to assume that Coyote vs. ACME is not going to have a public releasse. But guess what? That movie was killed for that dogshit adult animated Scooby-Doo series “Velma” getting a SECOND fucking season. Yeah, sure… let’s keep the garbage that makes money and not the fucking creative shit that actually...

Would spending the rest of his life behind bars not accomplish the same thing?

Executing someone costs significantly more than incarcerating them for life. The majority of that cost is in appeals, because we like to give people the best possible chance of not being wrongly executed. At least 4% of people sentenced to death were actually innocent. The only way to reduce the cost of the death penalty would be to take away that appeals process, trading innocent lives for money, which is usually considered “evil.”

No. So let’s avoid as much needless bloodshed as possible.

“Raising the bar for conviction” is a naive mindset that betrays a lack of understanding of the system. Nobody is sentenced to death without the judge and jury being just as certain of their guilt as they were of Brian Dorsey’s. Raising the bar to a height that would ensure no innocents are ever executed would necessitate the abolishment of the death penalty altogether.

But besides the “any law that can be used to rightfully execute a guilty person can be abused to wrongfully execute an innocent” argument, the death penalty is still a barbaric practice that the richest country on earth can afford to go without. Not every person will be rehabilitated, but I’m not convinced that not every person can be, and I will never be convinced that the State is a good enough judge of character to decide who is and isn’t capable of being rehabilitated.

The death penalty is cheap in Saudi Arabia because they enact it against people who don’t deserve to die. Surely you aren’t advocating for murdering your countrymen for being gay or trans or something, right? Because that would be evil.

So your argument is that people can be rehabilitated, but the State isnt even capable of deciding who can be rehabilitated,

My argument is that judges, juries, and prosecutors are incapable of knowing who can and can’t be rehabilitated when they sentence someone. I believe that anyone can be rehabilitated, and I don’t believe that the state knows who will be, so I’m against the state being allowed to kill people that it thinks won’t be.

Let alone situations like Cameron Todd Willingham’s death. He was 100%, absolutely, beyond a shadow of a doubt, guilty of setting the fire that killed his three children. Eyewitnesses said he was acting suspicious the night of the fire, and professional firefighters assured the jury that it was physically impossible for the fire to have started accidentally. And then after he was killed, new evidence showed that actually, those firefighters were wrong. There was no solid evidence that he killed his children.

You cannot make a system that allows for the execution of Brian Dorseys but not Cameron Todd Willinghams. You either allow the possibility of killing innocent people, or you don’t kill people at all. I know which I’m in favor of.

Alright then, just throw up your arms, keep encouraging cops to fuck up/frame people, and pat yourself on the back because, again, as far as you are concerned, out of sight out of mind as long as there isn’t a death on my conscious. Decades of torture, that’s fine, as long as you don’t need to see it.

What is controversial about the idea that we shouldn’t kill people? How does wanting to abolish the death penalty in any way equate to saying we should encourage cops to fuck up and frame people?

Obviously I’m in favor of more widespread changes to the criminal justice system to make it more focused on rehabilitation than retribution, since the latter has proven itself ineffective at dealing with crime. But until then, one step we could take is letting innocent people out, regardless of how long they’ve been in. Do you actually think it better to kill someone who’s been wrongfully imprisoned for decades than to let them go?

Obviously I’m in favor of reforming the police structure. What makes you think I don’t want those cops and firefighters held responsible? You’ve taken an incredibly uncharitable interpretation of my views and argued against it instead of actually addressing the things I believe. I shouldn’t have to say “the entire justice system needs reformed” in my comments about ways that we should reform the justice system. I think my assertion that any criminal can be rehabilitated implies that we should change from retribution to rehabilitation.
