Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Animals are people too!

So some nutter in the U.K., Dr. Brett Mills, has recently published an article claiming that animals have a right to privacy and that nature documentaries violate that right. The kicker? This nutbag isn't even a biologist. He's a faculty member of the University of East Anglia's school of film and television studies.

So what other completely inane and crazy theories have you read about lately?

How likely is it that bongi will come in here and start arguing the philosophical ramifications of animal privacy? (LOVE YOU TOBY)

    Unlikely? I don't know maybe he's eating.

    Fuck, sometimes I just don't read the news because everything is Retarded Every Day.

    The other day, The News told me democrats want thumbprint cards for employees for any job in the nation because the world needs to be a fucking William Gibson novel.

    Great, just what we need, a forum to get bears into court. Once they're in there, they will just pass motions and try to sway the jury. If that doesn't work, a bear will maul you. You're fucked either way.

    Animals are on thin fucking ice with me already, what with how I'm not eating them.

    They should count their fucking blessings.

    you're = you are
    your = belonging to you

    their = belonging to them
    there = not here
    they're = they are

    Animals don't care about privacy. When I watched that otter video in that other thread, I was like "Wow, I'd feel really awkward having a bunch of people videotaping me while I play with rocks." But those otters didn't feel awkward at all.

    Even if animals had a right to privacy, them walking around in public means they shouldn't expect their actions to be private

    It's like, you can't video tape me in my home or through my windows, but once I go outside, I don't have an expectation of privacy

    Man, the two party system fucking sucks.

    On the one hand, the Dems are pushing for the single most retarded and Orwellian institution this side of Patriot Act.

    On the other, the Republicans are the fucking Republicans.
