#3118541 #CrimingWhileWhite Opens A Prism On Police And Race

Posted by natty on 04 December 2014 - 03:16 PM

Oh man I got some stories from when I was a teenager.  I was the typical long haired grunge stoner, picture a 90s version of Slater from Dazed and Confused.  I have near zero doubt if I was black I would have been arrested multiple times and would have never followed the path I ended up on.  

 

Pulled over 4am coming home from a buddy's house by eastland mall, really high, just told the cop I had fallen asleep at a friends, was tired and wanted to get home.  Refused to allow my car to be searched, cop let me go.

 

Multiple time pulled over while drunk - once leaving a concert while my buddy was passed out in the passenger seat, explained he was drunk and I was his DD, that's why he smelled alcohol.  Once by UNCC with my girlfriend, cop actually told me he knew I was drunk but had a more important call(this one I didn't even remember until late the next day, I credit my all-american looking gf for this one, she had talked to him for a bit).  Once way down 74 in the middle of the night with beer in the trunk, cop just told us to walk to a pay phone, we walked for a while but just turned back to the car and burned out with a quickness.

 

Pulling into a parking lot with a buddy and lit up a joint, cops busted up red handed(smoke pouring from a old VW bug...who would have thought).  I hid my bag in my crotch, cops just talked to us for a while about how they get discriminated against(the restaurant they just went to sat them in the back corner).  They made me stomp out the joint, empty our pockets and let us go.  They never found by bag though, we just went somewhere else and lit up while laughing about it.

 

Quite a few more but the only time I ever got arrested was when my friend borrowed my car and got busted with coke(no amount of whiteness would get you out of that).  I got arrested for a bong in my car, got community service, had lawyer expunge my record, now clean as a whistle.

It's for smoking more than grilling.  You get the temp right and it stays there for hours and hours.  




#3116250 Charlotte/NC Honda dealer experiences?

Posted by natty on 02 December 2014 - 07:49 PM

Avoid Metro Honda in Monroe/Indian Trail area at all costs. My wife bought a car there and they took it for a final wash before she was supposed to leave dealership after paperwork was finalized. They brought the car and opened door for her so she can get in with no questions asked, kind of rushed her out which was weird. It was dark so I decided to walk to my wife to wish her safe trip when I noticed that almost entire right side was scratched and dented. The fugers side swiped her car when they took it for final clean and tried to get her out of the dealership on damaged accord. The second she leaves, it's not their problem anymore and she's totally liable.

I asked them what is the process for returning a car and they said I can't. They said they will fix it for free and will make sure it's not on carfax report. I said don't want damaged car and he said I'm poo out of luck. Pretty much told me and my wife to fug off because contract has been signed.

 

That's BS.  IIRC you can return it under law.  Never ask a dealer anything, tell them.  They are the scum of the earth.




#3074838 3-4 next year anyone?

Posted by natty on 09 November 2014 - 09:28 PM

Just a theory by me to explain his struggle holding up against the run this year.

 

Sophomore slump.  It gets harder to do your job the more film other teams have on you.  That's when technique comes in.




#3074832 Could it be worse than Green Bay?

Watch the Packers game right now and that'll answer your question.  Rodgers is unbelievable.  




#3069039 Season 5: The Walking Dead

Posted by natty on 05 November 2014 - 11:02 AM

I agree the show good use a good dose of moral ambiguity.  Right now the theme seems to be that these other people 'snapped' in some way and Rick and co are trying to prevent that from happening to them.  I'd like to see an antagonist that's a 'good' person but the group needs to take them out anyway.  




#3067762 90% chance that republicans take control of both houses today

Posted by natty on 04 November 2014 - 02:22 PM

We are a country of idiots when the "commercial" is soooooo influential.  The commercials on both sides are aimed at morons and plenty of them

 

Morons determine elections.  The best part about democracy is that everyone gets a voice.  The worst part about democracy is that everyone gets a voice.

q: what kind of untalented hack plagiarist are you?

I'm guessing you aren't much on attention to detail.  Might want to take a second look at OPs comic.

The biggest problem with discussing religion and politics in a rational way is differentiating between religious customs and cultural customs.  It doesn't matter whether it's the Bible Belt or Saudi Arabia.  You can't cherry pick a cultural practice and use it as an argument against the religion of that culture.  Bill Maher is horrible at that.  




#2959825 Homeowners: Give Me (First-Time Homebuyer) Your Advice

Posted by natty on 17 September 2014 - 09:59 AM

With an old house like that don't assume anything will be quick and easy.  Be prepared to replace things as you go.  I recently had to replace a water valve going to a toilet and ended up replacing the old copper tubing coming out of the wall with braided steel lines, it just made it easier.  Always over estimate the budget on projects, the little things from the hardware store will nickel and dime you to death.  Depending on the state of your appliances(water heater, hvac, ac, etc) you might want to consider getting a home warranty.  Keep at least $1000 for oh poo money, more is better.  Replace all lighting with led as bulbs burn out, it seems expensive but it's worth it.

#2939415 How not to apply for a job

Posted by natty on 09 September 2014 - 02:35 PM

When hunting for my next job I'm using this answer if I get asked, mostly because it's a BS question.

 

"What would you say is your greatest weakness"

 

"I'm too honest"

 

"I don't think that's a weakness"

 

"I don't give a poo what you think"

Wow the poor millionaire lost a few more million dollars that she would've gotten showing her tits. Now I feel sorry for her.

Seriously, it is an invasion of privacy no doubt. But it's not that big of a deal and they should be able to cure it with a good nights rest in that 25000 dollar bed they own.

Why do you even care, just out of curiosity?

 

Views like that tend to come from pure insecure jealousy.  

 

I don't care if she's a millionaire or in poverty, she got screwed out of money.  

 

I don't really care, just pointing it out.

We can talk about the ethics of the people that did this but the one thing people ignore about this hacking or the target hacking or any hacking(home depot just got hit hard) is the horrible security we have in the IT world.  We just keep chugging forward, connecting more and more devices to the internet, and ignore the elephant in the room.  It doesn't matter how encrypted your data is if the most common password is "password".
