My God… that’s a great point! (36 Photos)

  • Hunting

    Not that I wish that what I'm about to say is true, but the evolutionist in me says:

    It could be argued that Hate is a primal instinct met to protect you and your closest relatives safe from all things different. Keep you safe from rivals. You could argue hate is essential for small group survival…

    I'll go back to my troll cave now. Sorry

    • Umbra Fractus

      If you define hate, as I'm assuming Frank Iero does, as the same as heterophobia (that's fear of what is different, not fear of straight people) then, yes, hate is not only a survival instinct, it is the most important of them. It is only because we have others willing to, as George Orwell put it, "do violence on [our] behalf" that we are able to afford the luxury of making an attempt to transcend this instinct.

    • Thetruthis

      And as far as a psycological standpoint, Hate is a grouping of neurological hotspots in the brain being activated…area's like the Forbrain, amygdala and thalamus. It's as natural as experiancing infatuation for another….infact two area's of the brain are very similar when comparing brain mapping of love and hate.

    • tic

      I completely agree. Hate/Fear of what is different is one of the most natural things. One would hope that we are smart enough now as a species to see that it shouldn't be necessary for survival any longer.

    • MOAR

      Players? How about the NFL that makes 9B a year?

    • mikeraw

      How about they start raising awareness for a cancer that actually afflicts men more than women? Like prostate cancer?

      I can't stand feminists making inroads into one of the last merit-based, masculine institutions…

      • Rizzo

        Why can't they do both?

      • fucked

        The argument could be made that a nutsack is pink, so…

        • dirtysteve

          What if you're black though?

    • Just Sayin'

      Ok then, why don't you give up you October paycheck?

      • bigcityreem

        I don't make enough to give away my whole paycheck, but the idea of an NFL player doing this is extremely generous. Personally, I think they should simply donate and the NFL should match what the players donate.

    • Daniel

      Breast Cancer awareness is a little strange in the NFL. I mean wouldn't that be like the WNBA making April Male testicular cancer month?

      • duhhhh

        well that would be if any WNBA players liked balls…NFL players love boobies

      • OzarksChiver

        Guys can get breast cancer too, although there is a much lower incident than in women. Try researching next time.

    • chiveadmin
    • Bob Duato

      The worst part is that, supposedly, only 5% of the sales made from the NFL's breast cancer gear goes to the actual charity.

    • mick0311

      The amount of money and time that football players give to charity, and to their communities is quite high actually. You would be hard pressed to find an NFL star without a multi-million dollar charity in their name.

      • bigcityreem

        If I'm not mistaken, I think they're required to give time to charity. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    • Chris

      If the NFL players donated all of their October salaries to cancer research instead of wearing pink, than cancer researchers would be a lot more wealthy. And cancer victims would still be dead.

      Susan G Komen is a huge fraud.

      • OzarksChiver

        At least you're not cynical…

    #8 have you tried Mac n cheese with bacon?

    • Womb_Raider

      or how about some mac and cheese…………….ON WEEEEED

    • Deep Dish

      Now imagine how much more fun that mac n cheese with bacon would be if you were high.

    • knaimoli

      Can we be best friends?

    • Verbal_Kint

      Or lobster mac-n-cheese with Gruyere, Sharp Cheddar and white truffle oil? Fuuuuuuck…

      • Jen

        i want to have SEX with that kind of mac n cheese.

        • Verbal_Kint

          You should come over then….

          • Jen

            you could be the MEAT in the mac n cheese.

    • bigcityreem

      Mac and cheese with any kind of meat is awesome. I've tried it with pepperoni and sausage (beef, turkey and even chicken).

    • yup

      Holy shit! I just made that last night….. and I'm gonna do it again tonight! You just blew my mind… are you magic?

      • Yerp

        Yes sir

    • GrmrNzi


      • Needing a Trollop

        You got the point didn't you?

        • GrmrNzi

          Oh cmon it's not that hard telling the difference between their and there. Instead of some snarly remark just be more careful next time.

    • mbns

      About 1/4 of my income, I live off of green Monsters

    • Fellow.

      Don't be so ignorant. Red Bull is sold WORLDWIDE, I've only ever seen Monster energy drinks in North America. The United States sales of Red Bull account for only a portion of their income, unlike Monster. There is a world outside of your country, wake up to it.

      • sfb101


      • Needing a Trollop

        I'm Canadian first off. Secondly that was a little hash i'm just wondering what they have up there sleeve for stunts. Monster supported the world record distance jump on a snowmobile and Dirtbike. Jeez

        • Mr. Tea

          Longest and highest free-fall… without a parachute!!! Dun dun DUN!!!

          • Shifficed

            A huge portion of red bull sales must be in bars and clubs. No one ever orders a monster and vodka. It's always red bull. Drunks funded a space program. Who woulda thunk it.

            • jeff

              I actually prefer to mix with monster. Jager and monster is very very tasty

        • Jawbone

          "Harsh", not "hash".

          • OzarksChiver

            Opiated Primo Harsh, the kill…

      • Fish

        Don't be so ignorant. Monster is sold WORLDWIDE. I've seen Monster for sale in my local supermarket, in the middle of a tiny, quiet backwater in Australia – on the other side of the fucking planet from the USA. There are more than third-world countries that can't afford to import things outside of your country. Wake up to it.

      not funny and who the fuck is this guy?

    • Dee

      Let me get this straight (forgive the pun), I need to play with one more penis and not like it to be considered straight?? Is this some kind of sick joke?

      • thatguy

        No it is a regular joke. Ya know, those things you see the humor in and laugh at and NOT take too seriously…

        • Jen

          i think he was joking…

          • Jimbo

            Now I'm confused

    • Firefighter23

      I've only like 50% of the penises I've played with. My right one is cool but the left one kinda freaks me out

      From the looks of it, this is an airplane. But if you're okay with duct tape airplanes…..guess you'll be just fine.

      • sledneck600

        It's in a skydiving plane. No one cares about a duct tape plane if you have a parachute.

      some of these kids dont know who she is. or mike tyson

    • bigcityreem

      Well played man…well played.

    • Verbal_Kint

      According to Mike, it was the hardest punch he every threw. That bitch can take a punch…

      • bigcityreem

        Speaking of taking a punch, have you seen the "bus driver uppercut" video?

    • guest

      This is paraphrased from Joe Lewis, but I'm sure Mike probably said it too. Most boxing/fighting gyms I've been to have the Joe Lewis poster with this quote on it.

    #32 How about every penalty fine, typically 25,000, instead of going to Roger Goodell goes to Cancer. James Harrison would be at the top of the donor list.

    • Craigery

      I don't think those fines go to Roger Goodell, but I get your point.

    • asdjhk

      Those fines do go to charity

      • asdjhk

        On average its about 4 mil / year

  • Underbaker

    #8 Yeah, but Mac wouldn't hold still long enough for us to pour the cheese on him.

  • Kodos

    Not as hot as she thinks she is…

    • Craigery

      And yet, still hotter than anyone you'll ever sleep with.

    • Notknowing

      Maybe she is the reason some dude turned gay. The wearing of the shirt is her coming to terms with it.

    • Just sayin'

      You know what else is true and more funny? That dude-dude shit is still illegal in most of the world.

    • ChiverMedic

      Rose McGowan? Yeah, no, she's damn adorable and sultry. I wish I was at Target that day

      • KyleGamgee

        I thought that was her.

    #10 If I live my life in such a way that my death causes such grief in others, why would I rejoice about that? That seems pretty twisted.

    • Becca

      Wouldn't the death of anyone you care about cause grief in you? Why would you want to live your life in such a way that your death would cause rejoice in others. You know who's death everyone celebrated? Hitler's. Don't be like Hitler.

      it's ironic that it's written by, 'anonymous.'

    • HUH?

      not so true though. genius is born, not developed. Einstein didnt study and to all the things he did in order to become a genius. he did them because he was born a genius. without the geniuses in the world doing what they do, we might not have things like antibiotics, electricity, internet porn, etc. you are born the way you are. if you are born an asocial genius, embrace it and do something extraordinary.

      • Hitchupmah

        The point of the comment is not that geniuses won't contribute something great to society. It's that they are isolated because of their genius and can not fit in with anyone around them. Most geniuses (true geniuses, not smart people, like Newton, Da Vinci, Hawking, etc.) are severe loners and can not interact with other members of society well. They will most likely dwell on the fact the fact that they can't find true love, don't have many friends, etc and won't truly value their accomplishments very much. I would say Einstein actually is an exception to this, by all accounts a likeable and fun guy.

        And Boobs of course.

      It sucks. I swear half the people I see are idiots. I wish I was one of them

      • Smokey

        Maybe all those idiots are just dumbing themselves down so that they won't have to deal with the apparent consequences of intelligence? Maybe they're just better at it than you? Or maybe it's just we can't see into each other's thoughts, we don't know what they're thinking.

      • Meowmix

        I think anyone that calls themselves a genius is pretty obviously expressing their desire to be one. A true genius knows humility and has learned by the time they are fully grown that there is little to no benefit in telling others all about it

    • Egon

      I would intentionally get bad grades in middle school just so I wouldn't get singled out as "one of those smart kids." I've since come to realize that intelligence is a virtue, but I still feel awkward when I start talking to people about linguistics and go off on a tangent about the finer points of feature analysis only to have the other person stare at me like I just had a stroke. It's at that point that I start hating my brain for thinking too much.

      • einsteinselbow

        Did someone say Newton and Hawking are Genius'???

    • illWill

      Just dumb. This makes the assertion that becoming a genius is a matter of working hard and self sacrifice for selfish gains and you (the genius) end up miserable. Many 'geniuses' in science, engineering, research, humanities and medicine are people who sacrifice because they have passion. A thirst, nay a need to learn. A thirst to improve the plight of man if it's developing a new coronary stent that improves mortality or a shower curtain that doesn't stick to me in the bath. These people are alone and miserable, their work is highly gratifying. The second paragraph says that you (the genius) then 'dumbs-yourself-down' to be like everyone else and still find yourself miserable and alone. Then it concludes . . . 'you don't have to be [alone]". Sooooo . . . you're smart, miserable and alone, but don't have to be? -and there's no single bit of advice or point to reflect upon thereafter? What the hell kind of point is this thing trying to make? It's like a fucking poetry slam for 9th graders.

    • JPL

      This is a pretty shallow and objective definition of "genius". Sounds more like the definition of a grad student in science and research. But even then, these students don't toil endlessly to "show up" others and they definitely don't do it to make more money (they'd be foolish if they thought they were.)

      Most people who are defined as being "genius" in this post sacrifice social life and time with others because they are more concerned with their research or studies. Astrophysicists are obsessed with the stars and universe and would rather spend their lives learning more about that. Engineers would rather build a robot or a new satellite, and doctors would rather help others. For many of them, it is their calling in life.

      No, these people aren't giving up social skills, fun or any of that (just look at Neil Degrasse Tyson). They just have a different definition of "fun" than you do. There are plenty of people in the same field with the same intellect for them to socialize with. True, their level of education separates them from most other people, but most don't mind and some even enjoy that.

      This post just sounds like a poor justification for not being a "genius."Most everyone can be a "genius," you just have to care and work hard enough to get to it. For many, it's not their cup of tea. For some, however, it's more than worth it.

      • justanotherhuman

        I'll sum it up. I watch 'boobs and funny stuff' to relax my mind. When not doing that I think too much about everything.
        Oh, and I'm a girl.
