It's a article. Every article I've ever seen has been something along the lines of "Wow! The mundane is super interesting when you make the background image change as people scroll!" Oddly enough, this article is the first I've seen to just use a header image then stick to mostly (centered) text.

I have family in Minnesota, you can't get good anything up there. It's like the entire region decided their cuisine is going to be "meat and potatoes" and damned if you're going to put any seasoning (or sauce) on your meat.

What part of the entire state of MN does your family live in? Since this article mostly refers to the metro area of Mpls/St. Paul, I can safely call bullshit on your anecdote. I live a few blocks from a stretch of Minneapolis aptly named "Eat Street" and I literally could not swing a cat without hitting a restaurant/eatery/gastro pub (whatever the place calls itself...) that proved you wrong. That said, I have family out in Glencoe, MN and the ffod choices out there do tend to fall into the bland meat & potatoes category. But even Glencoe has a good Chinese restaurant that does more than sweet and sour and an awesome Mexican food truck.

Comment Re:Why don't other animals have "social justice"? (Score 1) 131

Why should humans subject their prey to this idiocy when wolves and lions etc. do not?
You want animals to have equal rights as humans? Then they would need to pay taxes and be subject to our laws about not shitting in public and killing each other. Get a grip on reality, seriously.

As an AC pointed out Snowden's raw leaks being made public didn't stop reporters from selling stories on that information. I'm just calling bullshit on this idea that FOIA requests being published publicly automatically...will somehow hurt any reporter's story. If they're worried about another reporter poaching the info and publishing before them, they need to be better at their job. Have all the background written up and ready to go by the time the FOIA is being filed, then pull an all-nighter to finish the story when it comes out. Simple.

Guess this means those those journalists didn't really care about exposing the corruption/injustice/what have you in their story as much as they like getting the credit and praise for doing the exposing. This is why i don't like Vice; they can do a really good job of reporting and exposing bad people to be sure, but they rarely bother to offer up a solution or shy away from making simple poverty porn for more page views.

Never posted to leddit, aside from occasionally getting linked to a thread. And I sincerely doubt you were following the (derailed) topic if you're calling the people I was replying to SJWs anyways. Maybe get some sort of grasp of the English language and what the words you're using mean before you post? Just a thought.
