I love that idea. Although I think it should be a longer and more comprehensive course. Examples of other topics that could be included:

Teaching men and women how to dress if they don't want to get raped

How to never make a decision that turns out badly

I'm sure if we pool our heads we could come up with more useful ways to blame victims! I'd suggest "how not to be a minority" but I'm not sure that, that's teachable unless you think we could get the budget for makeup lessons as well?

Really, what's the difference between making a copy of yourself, and going to sleep? It may seem like they're completely different concepts, but think about happens when you sleep. Your self shuts down, eventually you dream and than wake up, but for all intents and purposes it may as well be a new you.

That's not at all hate speech. Hate speech requires there to be a specific target. As well, I don't agree with your statement that no-one who says that believes it. The individuals who do believe that the Holocaust was a hoax may be disturbed, but they definitely do exist. True radicalism (as Neo-Nazi's and other Holocaust deniers tend to be), necessitates ardent belief. In the case of Antisemitism many feel such hatred and fear that they can convince themselves of beliefs or ideas that a normal person would consider completely irrational.

Comment Is this Clickbait? (Score 1) 255

Far too often I've been seeing asinine articles written about arbitrary asides and I've come to the conclusion that editors only post these meaningless, incomprehensible, rants because of the amount of discussion (in this case, complaints) they generate.

No one with half a brain would think these ideas are sound. In fact, they read like a Buzzfeed article. 5 insane tricks to troll SlashDot! 1 way to make your audience hate you (and comment more!).

Can anyone think of a reason why these tirades get posted, other than to generate false outrage?

Your own mileage may vary.
