+3 5. riverside89 commented 12 years ago on video Bystander Effect - people watch girl being abducted

I think the little girl was not a very convincing actress. "Somebody please help me. You're not my dad. Somebody please help me. You're not my dad." To me she sounded like a brat having a tantrum. She didn't sound at all like a frightened little girl being kidnapped. Still, I don't think I could have just walked by without at least civilly and cautiously intervening, just in case. I bet you if she'd been screaming, crying, kicking, falling on the ground, and otherwise appearing terrified, the bystanders would have been all over the situation. Unfortunately a lot of kids in that situation for real would be too terrified to resist. Bravo to the two guys who did intervene.

+4 6. riverside89 commented 12 years ago on video Moral Pharmacist - Social Experiment

Interesting.

It's not a totally realistic scenario. There are a lot more issues involved. Should the pharmacist be able impose his moral values on the girl? Should the girl be able to impose her morality on the pharmacist (i.e. force him to do something he feels is morally wrong)? In real life, of course, he couldn't impose his morality because she could just take her prescription and go somewhere else. Also in real life, even if a pharmacist felt it would be wrong for him to do something to help an underage girl become sexually active, there are reasons other than preventing pregnancy that a girl might need to take birth control pills. So he would probably fill the prescription anyway. Also, in many states the age of consent is 18. If an underage girl has sex, then by legal definition someone has sexually abused her (for example, statutory rape). In every state, health care providers are mandated reporters. Exact rules vary, but in general they are required by law to notify police once they become aware of, or even suspect, any abuse or exploitation of a minor.

Lots of issues to ponder. :S

+1 11. riverside89 commented 12 years ago on video What would you do?

Another interesting video.

That was an interesting stereotype held by the three black ladies. I wonder why they thought that way. They didn't look young enough to be naive. Could it have anything to do with their personal experiences throughout life. I remember that Jesse Jackson made a similar, very controversial observation a few years ago when he said:

"There is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery. Then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.... "

Whether the thief was white or black, the people putting the most effort into giving him grief were elderly. And the guy who helped the black kid at the end was elderly - he simply accepted the lost key explanation without question. Maybe what this video shows is that if you're obviously doing wrong, older people are more likely to give you grief, and younger people are more likely to look the other way. And if you need a hand, older people are more likely to give it.

-5 12. riverside89 commented 12 years ago on video Talking to Americans

The guy walks up to someone and starts saying something that is obviously ridiculous, and is stupid enough to think the person is taking him seriously. Most Americans (and Canadians too) would realize that it's some kind of a joke and go along with it, waiting for a punch line or a chance to give a humorous or comical reply. The ones who got annoyed or walked away would be edited out of course. In this case the interviewer didn't have a punch line or even any clever questions. He did a piss poor job of it. He acts like a guy who thinks he's so superior that he doesn't have to think anymore - all arrogance and no creativity. He's just not that good. Any good entertainer can make a better "Funny Americans" video than this. American entertainers do it all the time. We Americans love jokes, even when they're on us, especially jokes that aren't intended to degrade other people. Most unAmericans seem to prefer jokes that do degrade other people, even if they're not funny.

0 13. riverside89 commented 12 years ago on video Shopping While Black - Social Experiment

That's a very interesting video. It could have been better. Since that kind of racist behavior is so common they shouldn't have needed to hire actors to play the racist store clerks. As common as such incidents are said to be, it should have been easy to get plenty of video of actual racist store clerks mistreating the actress posing as a customer. But I have to admit, I have never witnessed a real life scenario anything like the one portrayed in this video. I know racism exists; I've been the victim of it too many times. But I don't think it exists in the stereotypical ways most people believe.

+12 19. riverside89 commented 12 years ago on video A solution to the US national debt?

I appreciate that young people are aware that the massive debt is going to fall on their shoulders and ruin their lives. But since the debt is the result of government spending, and the government still really likes to spend, I'm not optimistic about a solution coming from people who have been educated in government schools. The purpose of government controlled education is to preserve the status quo.

Remember that the president of the U.S. has no direct power to increase or decrease the deficit or the national debt. All spending bills originate in the House of Representatives. Congress decides what the budget will be, what taxes will be and where money will be spent. The president can veto a spending bill, and he has a lot of influence. Beyond that he has no direct control over the budget.

What the U.S. needs is a good, healthy, thriving, tax free, underground economy (i.e. black market).

"...due to your combative nature..." He's not combative. Those cops need to look that word up before they write it in a report that Mr. Itchy has to answer to in court.

They don't want to scratch his nuts, and they don't want to take the handcuffs off. OK, understandable. Maybe the could sit him astride a railing or fence or something and drag him by the feet for three or four meters. Of course they'd want to turn the video camera off first, or he'd have them by the balls - figuratively speaking.

That car had to swerve all the way over to the shoulder of the oncoming lane!

As they passed the center of the highway they were moving into the lane the car was in. Once they saw that the car was swerving to its left they started motivating in the other direction.

-1 39. riverside89 commented 12 years ago on video MIT's Seaswarm

@10: As far as cost: If it's too extremely expensive, then no matter how well it works no one will be able to buy it, even if you could force them. But if one of these things can collect a barrel of oil for less than the price of a barrel of oil, people will be competing to get them. If that's the case, then why not get them available?

How big are these things? How much oil can one collect before it has to be drained? They showed a single still shot near the end, but why didn't they show one in action? If they can actually make one of these things now, and it's not prohibitively expensive, wouldn't they show one in the video instead of just animation?

@6: There were something like 5 million barrels of oil spilled in the Gulf. You have to you have a good place to put that much oil before you start collecting it. Otherwise you may end up with another mess as big as the one you're cleaning up.

@9: Some parents protect their kids from all possible risks and scary things. Most parents know what their kids are capable of, even before the kids know. I bet your parents would NEVER, EVER be so irresponsible as to let you try something as risky as jumping into a swimming hole from a rope.

I'm so grateful to my parents for being as *irresponsible* when I was a kid as the parents in this video. I had a fantastic childhood (late 1950's-60's). They let me try all kinds of crazy, scary fun things, some of which kind of hurt. If I wanted to try something fun that the bigger kids were doing, but was too scared to have a go, they would be right there the first time, encouraging me, teaching me how not to get hurt, and ready to jump in just in case. Of course, I did the same for my kids when they were growing up.

There's nothing wrong with these parents. The kid is wearing a flotation vest. I bet he's been in that swimming hole many times before. They're standing right there just in case. And like all good parents throughout the world, they aren't raising any pussies.

+7 69. riverside89 commented 12 years ago on video Drill baby drill.

@21: You said it. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee retreat in Miami was a one day event that took place shortly after President Obama's State of the Union address in January. At the retreat 11 Democrat senators schmoozed with representatives from 129 big corporations and lobbyists, including banks and financial institutions, oil companies, insurance companies, big pharmaceutical companies, labor unions and many others. Those corporations and lobbyists paid $30,000 each to attend the retreat.

Big corporations, big labor unions, big lobbyists - pay big money to politicians in exchange for even bigger paybacks from big government, at the expense of working class Americans who can no longer afford to pursue their own dreams and goals. It's been going on for more than 150 years. The corporations, the unions, the lobbyists - they may be greedy and corrupt to the core, but they're not stupid. They wouldn't keep paying if they weren't getting what they were paying for.

Democrats and Republicans have been running this country for more than 150 years. Either the screwed up way things are is the way they want them to be, or they are pathetically incompetent, or they are corrupt to the core. They are nothing but two criminal organizations competing for the same turf. If things keep going the way they are, our government will soon be as corrupt and oppressive and disrespectful of the people as the governments of Europe, and the majority of our people will be just as whipped and subdued as the people of Europe.

If you want to see real change in America, in future elections, beginning this November, do not vote for Democrats or Republicans. If they are the only choices on your ballot, then always vote against the incumbent. Vote them out.

+4 96. riverside89 commented 12 years ago on video Expert recreates Toyota sudden acceleration

#(removed comment): I think you hit the nail on head there. That is why a government should never ever own, operate or become a partner in any kind of business. When it can't successfully compete - and it never can - corrupt politicians and bureaucrats (in other words, typical politicians and bureaucrats) will dishonestly use the government's police power to oppress and destroy its competitors.

As far as the government's ability to run a business, look at what happened several years ago when the federal government took over and tried to run the Mustang Ranch in Nevada (they ran it at a loss for a few years, then shut it down and sold the assets). If they can't even make a profit off of slot machines, whiskey and whores then there's no way they can run an auto manufacturer without some serious corruption.

That's interesting, but it looks like that much steel wool is only good for one fire. If you carried a dozen steel wool pads and an extra battery you could start a dozen fires. But I think 500 matches and two or three Bic lighters would be easier to carry and good for a lot of fires - and you'd have plenty just for playing around with.

Wow, there was a lot of potential for serious harm there. I don't see why this isn't considered domestic violence. I mean, I do see why: it's because it was the female hurting the male, which is still acceptable in our enlightened society.

Wouldn't it be just as funny if the male greased the top step on the porch right before the female left for work in the morning? But, a male hurting a female... that wouldn't be politically correct, would it? It certainly wouldn't be funny.

I like a funny prank or joke as much as the next guy. But this isn't funny. Why would she hurt someone she cares about? She wouldn't.

#11 Aw, come on, really? :P You believe that with a single 1 or 2 second glance you can tell that someone is completely brainwashed? That's a pretty irrational belief - and very judgmental! :(

When I look at the people in the audience I think they're daydreaming, bored, skeptical, or bemused, like most of the people in church on Sunday morning. I don't think they're any more brainwashed by this preacher than Barack Obama is after listening to the racist Rev. Jeremiah Wright for more than 20 years. But since I can't read their minds I guess I don't really know what's going on inside them. So I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and begin with the assumption that they are just as capable of evaluating this preacher's message as you and I are.

What's funny is how seriously some of the people posting comments take this silliness.

Don't worry about this preacher. He will not take away your Pokemons. At the beginning he talks about his own son having Pokemons. Apparently he wants to warn people about what he thinks are "the dangers of Pokemon", but he's not willing to go as far as stopping his own son from having Pokemons if he wants them.

I think this man has some amusing opinions, but respects the rights of others to make their own choices.

#10 ???! That's a very emotional reaction. You may have some "hate" issues of your own (or unresolved feelings of guilt about your Pokemons? :S). The preacher can't cram anything down anyone's throat when they can just click the <Back> button, turn off the TV, sit there and daydream, or get up and walk out anytime they please.

One of the blessings of a free country is that he can say anything he wants, and no one has to listen. :D

What?! He said something she didn't like... and she hits?!!
Why would he want to be married to someone like that? If they someday had children, how would she react to a child who said something she didn't like?

Unless this man wants to spend the rest of his life groveling and getting hit, he should start counting his blessings. I'm surprised she didn't take the gift he was offering with her when she left.

The legal and social support systems in the U.S. are starting to wake up to the fact that men are just as likely to be victims of domestic violence as women are. But male victims of domestic violence still don't get anywhere near the same legal and moral support that female victims get.

In fact, when women hit and humiliate men, our society still thinks it's funny, as evidenced by the responses to this video. What do you think the reaction to this video would be if it showed a woman very publicly expressing love to a man, and offering him an expensive token of her love, and him responding by slapping her in front of a crowd and walking out? He wouldn't make it out of camera range without a good number of lumps and bruises from people along the way. I'd be laughing at this video if someone had given that woman a swift kick in the butt before she reached the top of the stairs. But that wouldn't be right either.

Well, nobody's perfect. I hope their house wasn't too badly damaged.
The tree appeared to be leaning toward the house. The way you make the cut can affect the direction the tree falls, but only to a certain extent. You can't completely defy gravity.
Some ways they could have approached this:
- Tie a long, strong rope about 2/3 of the way up the tree and use it to pull the tree in the direction you want it to fall. You'd be surprised at how big of a tree one man can pull over with a rope tied high in the tree.
- Instead of trying to make it fall completely opposite from the way it was leaning, they could have made the back cut on the side of the tree facing the camera, so the tree would fall in the direction away from the camera, but not directly toward the house. But I'd still use a rope just to play it safe.
- Climb the tree (using hooks and a belt - never a ladder) and cut the branches off on the way up, until you're high enough to safely drop the top. Then cut the trunk in pieces on the way back down. That tree had enough room around it to make this fairly quick and easy.

In Sweden, they would never have a tree fall on a house like that. They would dismantle the house and move it out of the way first.

I love the sound of chainsaws echoing in the woods :)
