Revenge is sweet. Revenge is a dish best served cold. Ice cream is cold... ...and sweet. Therefore revenge is ice cream.

Hmmm, 'I think you are making a bad situation worse' earns you the reward of becoming a child rapist in their next book? I think that's quite a bit beyond 'passive' aggressive.

Understandable mispronunciation, but it's actually said like "mah-RIN." But then go ahead and mispronounce it, the majority of those folks are stuck up jerks anyway 😆

How is it possible for you to literally sound posher than Prince William? Dial it back a couple of points dude, it sounds ridiculous. The poshest person in the country doesn't sound that posh so what are you trying to prove?

Wouldn’t that rainbow house be it’s own form of bullying? I mean for an anti bullying headquarters to actually partake in bullying themselves is a bit hypocritical no matter how worthy it’s cause.

Wow...you managed to call Roland Emmerich "Roald," "Ronald," and "Robert" all in a single second! And apparently, Roger Ebert borrowed that "Robert" moments later. Also, George Lucas didn't make E.T. Did you not research this one?

Michael Crichton was a much needed voice in the global warming debate. In a world where the only two voice are "we're all going to die!" and "nothing is happening" you had a guy who was looking at the data, objectively searching for the cause, and saying we shouldn't politicize scientific issues. To that, I say kudos.

Roger Ebert and Roland Emmerich... too many factual errors I'm thinking this must be a troll vid or something.

The one that usually cries out for the cycle of revenge to stop is usually the one who last had the satisfaction of it, and fears the next step of the cycle.

George Lucas using poor people as a weapon to troll rich people is pretty hilarious and a little sad

In Swedish and German we have two words. Revenge as acts of murder and mayhem are described as "hämnd"/"Rache", while Swedish and at least Austrian German has "revanch"/Revansche" as equivalent to what you are probably describing. I offered a friend (an adult childhood friend, if that makes sense, met later when I was myself also adult) something, and in order to motivate offering me sth in return, she said "ich muß mich revanschieren" ... She would obviously not have said "ich muß mich rächen".

You forgot about the time that Lord Byron's original version of Don Juan included a dedication that was a complete hit piece on another poet, Robert Southerly, who had accused him of incest. It included the line "I wish your fate may yield ye, when she chooses,/The fame you envy and the skill you need."

Unfortunately, the Darth Saudi video is not right. The Guard has played the march, but only for practice, before the Saudi King entered. As he drove up, the guard played the Saudi anthem.

Open minded tolerant liberal Simon calling people with different beliefs than his "horrible people." It wouldn't be a problem if you and other sjws didn't preach openness and tolerance towards those you agree with while judging people you don't. At best you are a a hypocrite. At worst you are contributing to the intolerant left.

If a man puts out an eye and is unpunished he puts out another, and another, and another. Eventually all but one are blind. If a man puts out an eye and is immediately punished by having his eye put out, he stops there, or at most at one more, and no more after that are harmed. All others considering putting out another's eye reconsider such actions. Since one is already dead when seeking revenge only one more grave need be dug, and when that was is filled no more will need do be dug. Despite the fact that we dress it up, revenge is the foundation of justice.

If you thought the rainbow paint job on that vacant house next to the church was priceless, then doing the same to the Kaaba would be the ultimate prank.
Daniel Duncan (1 month ago)
Ever notice how the people who try to tell you that revenge is bad are the same people that you want to get revenge on? Just saying. Same goes for the outlawing of the pistol duel and the guillotine. Without the pistol duel or the guillotine people in power are allowed to run amok.
