You just described a lot of posts here.

Explain how people asking their fellow GTAForumers off topic questions and people posting "joined two days before my birthday" and "hates Odd Future" are similar?

 

A lot of people have benefitted from this thread however nobody benefited from the "Post a fact about the person above" thread as it was filled with bullsh*t spam that didn't contribute to the forum.

I benefited from the ego boost I received when someone said something nice about me. Now I'm stuck in perpetual-crying-mode.

Hmmm nice bike

Do any Londoners (or people who are familiar with the transit system in London) know if you can load a 7-day Travelcard onto an Oyster card, or if an Oyster card is sold with 7 days loaded onto it to begin with and I can just add more cash once the 7 days are up?

An Oyster car will become a 7-day travel card at the point at which a 7-day travel card is cheaper than an Oyster. So, if you spend more than the cost of a 7-day travel card on your Oyster, your expenditure won't continue, much in the same way that it won't go higher than a day travel card if you use it more than 4 or so times in a day.

so it is true - they serve chowder on London mass transit? Pip pip.

 

But, what I was really getting at, although I guess it wasn't clear, is why in the devil is it called an Oyster card?

 

I went and chucked it in the goog:

 

 

The Oyster name was agreed on after a lengthy period of research managed by TranSys and agreed by TfL. Several names were considered, and Oyster was chosen as a fresh approach that was not directly linked to transport, ticketing or London. According to Andrew McCrum, now of Appella brand name consultants, who was brought in to find a name by Saatchi and Saatchi Design (contracted by TranSys), Oyster was conceived and promoted because of the metaphorical implications of security and value in the component meanings of the hard bivalve shell and the concealed pearl, the association of London and the River Thames with oysters, and the well-known travel-related idiom "the world is your oyster".

 

...le barf.

Rightfully so, most Europeans seem to hold their nations up on a pedestal when it comes to social progression relative to the US. However, they seem to lag behind America in terms of racial equality (from my personal experience). Given that black folks seem to have a bad reputation just about everywhere, does anybody know of any European nations where the potential quality of life for blacks matches or exceeds that of the US?

Your using personal experience to try and extrapolate a general point which is never helpful.

What makes you think that that Europe lags behind the US in racial equality anyway? Generally speaking there's on average far less economic and social disparity in Western Europe than there is in the US regardless of any determining factors.

  • Is there mass unemployment, more than any other race?
  • Is there systematic use of education (lack of diploma) to keep them out of employment?
  • Are there rewards for producing progeny (from the welfare system)?
  • Do they centre in mass areas of cities?
  • Do the police fear entering those areas?
  • In Europe are there Television programs that have no other races in the cast?
  • Are other programs/movies required to have at least one in the cast?
  • Is that token cast member playing a leadership role?
  • Does Europe have laws where referring to a person by race in anger (or not) is a ‘hate crime’?
  • Do they have a language or dialect of their own?
  • Do European police tend to be more violent when dealing with them?
  • Are they treated with less respect than a Jew, Muslim, or Gypsy?

Hey, guys. I know this question should be posted in the Music talk subforum, but they almost never or never answer anything about songs in videos.

 

So, it's simple. Does anyone know the name of the song playing in the background of this video from 0:00 - 1:40? (Just the music, random WWE announcements or whatever have nothing to do with the song).

Based on your usual attitude towards rap I am surprised to tell this to you, but I am very certain it's the instrumental from "Not afraid" by eminem, like 99% sure. It was a number 1 song so not surprised to hear it there it was released April 2010, the lyrics are great, should listen it through.

 

 

 

And Instrumental

EDIT: Another quick question. Is Corona a strong beer? Or better yet, how strong is it? :)

Corona is 4.6% ABV. Firmly in light beer territory.

 

By contrast, my go-to strong brew is Phillips Amnesiac double IPA. 8.5%.

Why are there so many moderators these days? And what happened to Adriaan? He was okay.

Some of the global mods retired recently, if I'm not mistaken, and others are relatively inactive. That's why so many members have been added to the global staff the other day. And since moderators can moderate the whole forum, as the rank name suggests, plenty of new led-by's have been added, too. And especially in a forum like the GTAV- and GTA: Online section, led-by's are urgently needed. As for Adriaan, he retired months ago already for reasons I don't know. Edited by Andreas

Corona is a ladies beer unless you are Mexican or Latin American. It goes down very smooth and has very little beer taste other than the lime you put in it, and you can drink a few of them before noticing any effect.

You are over-thinking this. I'm using personal experience to extrapolate empirical evidence on how minorities might be treated in similar situations. Last time I checked you don't hear blatantly racist chants at major American sporting events. I also can't remember the last time I've heard of a heavily influential black European who wasn't an entertainer or athlete. The same racial boundaries that plague the US do so in Europe as well. While America is just as screwed up as the next place on racial ethics, the simple fact is that our major cities have blacks, Hispanics, and Asians in numbers far too large for racism to prevail the way it used to. Much of Europe just doesn't have as many blacks (percentage wise) as we do here in the US. This concerns me since existing populations of a given demographic is the key metric for hospitality towards that demographic.

 

 

Not here for a debate to be honest. I just wish someone would answer the question already. I'll put it in layman's, is there any place in this world other than Africa or the United States where blacks can lead a MORE peaceful, politically progressive, and financially prosperous life? (one worth living)

I don't want to get bogged down in responding to the rest of your post as it is neither the time nor place, but in answer to this; all these things are relative and largely subjective. I can name numerous places where the standard of living amongst ethnic minorities is on average much higher than in the US; places with less crime or societal violence than the US; more politically progressive places; and places with higher living wages. Take basically the whole of Scandinavia, for one, which meets all of those criteria.

Isn't Scandinavia a basely pure racial area of Germanic decent?

How much 'diversity' of races exist there?

What kind of industry exists there?

When considered against the whole of the rest of the world it seems to be an ... isolated culture...

I think , to generalize, the only people more racist than Americans are Koreans and Japanese, but their racism includes white people.
