I get the point but whenever I see this argument I think it underestimates how heavily armed the government is. Last century, governments used tanks to oppress (Soviets 1953 in Berlin and 1968 in Prague, Chinese 1989 on Tiananmen Square), nowadays they have drones and robots are under development. I don't see people having the guns to defend themselves against any of these.

They don't. They may remember in vivid detail due to the emotional involvement the other guest mentioned. Those details are still prone to be wrong. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eyewitness_memory

Cultural appropriation 49 comments

Also, just because they were invented in Japan doesn't make using them cultural appropriation. Otherwise everybody using the internet outside the US would be appropriating US culture.

Also the drainage holes are pointless in the middle as lowest point where the water will run will be at the edge. You can achieve the same by holding the lid on the pot slightly ajar.

"The president’s argument during the State of the Union address was probably not that wage redistribution and suppression doesn’t exist, but instead that the level of wage dampening that immigration is actually responsible for in the broader scope of the problem pales in comparison to the wage suppression that has occurred since multi-billion dollar companies decided to prioritize rewarding shareholders first and workers last." www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2016/01/immigrants-or-executives-whos-to-blame-for-wage-stagnation/424032/

oh, if only it were that simple..:
"However, the primary cause for lower than average wage growth in the late 1970s appears to be economic stagnation in the area, with immigration only a secondary factor." digitalcommons.law.yale.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1157&context=ylpr

the second-to-last comment makes it sound that they established in therapy that there was no evidence for Gray cheating and it was all in Green's head (though it looks now like it was not). So they're still on first chance

tl;dr: sample size of 1 is too small given different people who review, plus the second account might have mainly been suspended because it was new and that being its only tweet.
But good on y'all for screaming cancer, hypocrisy, retarded and bullshit before doubting that claim.

Not sure if my experience counts as mine had already grown out so they did not have to be operated out of the gums, just pulled out like any other tooth under local anesthesia. No pain during or afterwards though, one of my most pleasant visits to the dentist.

I was gonna sarcastically point out the species that were hunted to extinction, but apparently that actually works (at least it helps preserve the remaining population of a species on the brink of extinction) according to en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hunting#Conservation_tool and en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hunting#Conservation.
But still, examples of animals hunted to extinction exist (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Species_made_extinct_by_human_activities) albeit that happened without the hunters having to pay for hunting them (so different incentivation mechanisms at work there).

It's as much a theory as the theory of gravity. It's as unproven as the risks and benefits of vaccinations and the sphere shape of the earth. Go ahead, devise an experiment that falsifies it. And look, it's already showing effects: theguardian.com/environment/radical-conservation/2017/apr/05/climate-change-life-wildlife-animals-biodiversity-ecosystems-genetics

Sounds to me like two different recollections of the same story. Eyewitness testimony is notoriously unreliable (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eyewitness_testimony). Why would whoever made this believe the pink facebooker was lying because the barman contradicted her but not that the barman was lying because the pink facebooker contradicted him?
