#2864553 Arizona Man Dies 2 Hours Into His Execution

Posted by Happy Panther on Yesterday, 02:35 PM

Society benefits by not having ti pay to keep convicted murderers (and rapist in some states) in prison for decades when they have no chance of every getting out.


Other prisoners benefit by having a decent chance at rehabilitation as people convicted of writing bad checks won't be housed in with serial killers and rapist.


If done correctly swift death sentences will deter others from doing similar acts.

The death penalty is more expensive than life in prison.


Bad check writers are not housed with serial killers.


The death penalty is not a deterrent.


Anything else?

What are the benefits of the death penalty again?

#2863017 The downsides of being rich

Posted by Happy Panther on 24 July 2014 - 11:06 AM

Why did I know my name would be brought up when I opened this thread. Just because I enjoy nice things doesn't suddenly make me shallow, I also do nice things for people all the time. I will say there is a few correct points, it hard to figure out if someone is with you for the money initially, so it makes you a bit suspicious of new relationships. Also, it seems often it's perceived that a wealthier person doesn't deserve to get repaid for small things that were loans or is expected to pay more for shared expenses, I just had this with a new tenant who clogged up the AC unit with the dust from renovations they were doing, so now there is cost of $265 to clean the coil. To be nice, I offered to split the cost with him even though it is legally and contractually his responsibility for the entire cost. Instead if being grateful, he starts whining about the money he's spending on trying to start his business and says it would be such a minimal expense for me with how well I do, so I should just pay for ALL of it. Happens all the time!

Once I started making a few bucks I got some of this as well.  Every year we get a beach house and I end up paying for it. My brother does the "might show up" thing and my uncle usually just avoids the issue and shows up and never chips in. My aunt is rich and chips in. My uncle owns a beach house and if you stay he asks people to pay. And my mom is never expected to pay by my choice


Last year we did 2 weeks and through various people bailing and flaking out we ended up with 4 people in a $6k beach house for most of a week. Because I have a few bucks my wife would always say it is worth it to get the family together, life is short. But after last year we decided to take a year off and chill.


So now everyone is heading to my Uncle's house and he is dealing with trying to get everyone to pay and not having enough bedrooms. Huge cluster circus. Love 'em all but am getting some enjoyment out of this.

#2861797 The downsides of being rich

Unless you were born rich, at some point in your life you’ve probably dreamed about becoming wealthy.
You know, ridiculous wealth, winning-the-lottery kind of money, with visions of lifestyles of the rich and famous, mansions with manicured lawns and massive swimming pools, personal islands, expensive sports cars, private jets and, well, loads of extra money just to do whatever you’d like whenever you’d like to.
What happens to those lucky few people for whom dream becomes a reality? We turned to question-and-answer-site Quora for some advice on whether getting rich is worth it.



The downsides of being rich can outweigh the benefits. “The first thing you are thinking reading that, is, ‘cry me a river.’ You are not allowed to complain about anything, ever,” when you’re wealthy, wrote one anonymous respondent. “Since most people imagine being rich as nirvana, you are no longer allowed to have any human needs or frustrations in the public eye. Yet, you are still a human being, but most people don't treat you like one.”
Other downsides stretch to new parameters with friends and family. “Most people now want something out of you, and it can be harder to figure out whether someone is being nice to you because they like you, or they are being nice to you because of your money,” the anonymous respondent continued.  “If you aren't married yet, good luck trying to figure out (and/or always having self-doubt) about whether a partner is into you or your money.”



Yeah I think I would still take it.

#2861466 A Whole Thread for my Dungy Comment, I Deserve It

Posted by Happy Panther on 22 July 2014 - 10:30 PM

I'm curious if the Michael Sam draft pick moved the needle for the average non-sports fan, gay or straight? Does this transcend sports? I haven't really heard any non sport fans even discuss it. It seemed like a huge moment but I live in the sports bubble.

Sent from my iPhizzle while pooping using CarolinaHizzle

As far as I can tell it was a fleeting moment and could have died already.


The problem is as rodeo points out, ESPN is generating a story as they do all the time. Dungy, as far as I can tell, is an ESPN analyst at least quasi. So ESPN gets him to say this and the makes it a story. Hey an ESPN guy said something let's make it a story on ESPN. Typical Garbage. They don't allow people to do candid interviews without knowing exactly what they will say.


Add to that Bill Polian, another ESPN hack, made the same comments and it makes you wonder.


edit: Dungy is a fundamentalist Christian. Shocker.

I had 2 hours of drunk sex Saturday morning. 2 freaking hours straight. Then woke up at 8:30am and had sex again. Put that on your spreadsheet. That's a big freaking W for a married guy 10 years in.

With another person?

#2861230 As you have grown up have you become more liberal or more conservative?

Posted by Happy Panther on 22 July 2014 - 05:49 PM



Much like many of us have said, we need a common sense party, and they would be unbeatable.


As to the original question, I have become more liberal on social issues, and even more conservative on national and international finance issues.


My biggest change is how I view what we do internationally, especially our war machine.  We spend far too much on "national defense".


What I find stunning is that so many of my friends have your exact view and yet when i point out that the libertarian party is:

Socially Liberal

Fiscally conservative

responsible on a global basis


They look at me like I have 2 heads

I do hope he does well. It would be a great story and I know he played for a bad team here.


But he is just missing something to be any good in the NFL. Always seemed like the game moves too fast for him.

#2859856 NYPD kill a man after placing him in a chokehold

Posted by Happy Panther on 21 July 2014 - 11:24 AM

I was making a point because everyone was saying he died from the chokehold. He didn't, so the excessive force thing is out of the window. And he didn't die because of police action, he died because of his own actions.


When he stopped breathing and the cops were telling people he was OK that probably didn't help him much.

Maybe I am a neo conservative on this, but we need to consider sending military help to the Ukraine


Europe should be sending troops before we do

#2858667 Have a feeling we're on a verge of WWIII.

OP sleeps with a tinfoil hat.

Concerning the US Navy...

20-30 years ago the US Navy was the most powerful military branch in the world. The US Navy was so far advanced compared to everyone else it wasn't even funny. Now? Not so much. China & Russia have caught up.

China isn't even close. They don't have aircraft carriers and only a handful of fighting ships. We crush them on pure numbers.


Russia might be a little closer but I think their fleet is aging

Shows that you know absolutely nothing about International Finance.....

Having worked in international finance for the past decade you are simply proving my point.
