So if we had an acronym, lets say, BFK, for "Big fucking knife"

You would pronounce the acronym, biffin or something the sort?

Because I would say BFK, just like I'd say G I F, which would eventually be shortened to jif. The words that make up the acronym don't make up the way the letters individually are pronounced.

If you own a business, and people come in naked and sit down in your brand new chairs and leave skid marks. Are you going to serve them? Thing is, they're going to come in with clothes and not flaunt around that they are naked...Homosexuals will most likely still be served unless their flaunting around like a homo. It's still the owners choice to refuse service to anyone. Eventually a homo will open a no straight shop. we straight people won't care...Let them live their homo lives and i'll live my non homo life.
User avatar #313 - teoberry (02/25/2014) [-]
They can be gay you fucking idiot. There are go mandatory 'straight camps'. Business owners just have the right to refuse them because they don't want people like them in their shop. There is nothing wrong with someone not wanting someone else on their property.

"There is nothing wrong with someone not wanting someone else on their property"

There is something completely wrong with being a homophobic moron who should have sense beaten into him (although I doubt that would actually work in such low cases, like yours..)

Just because the joint is yours it doesn't mean you have the liberty of kicking out whoever you want, FOR NO REASON. If they're making a scene, fine. Otherwise, you WILL obey the law.
User avatar #340 - teoberry (02/25/2014) [-]
Someone's a tad agressive. www.legalzoom.com/us-law/equal-rights/right-refuse-service

You cannot be discriminated on those reasons. Notice how sexual orientation is not on there. Owners still have the legal right to refuse service to gays. gg no re, learn the law, stop the insults, you're not a tough guy

Oh, wait, looky here!

"For example, California's Unruh Civil Rights Act makes it illegal to discriminate against individuals based on unconventional dress or sexual preference."

Well then you have a fucking redneck law, that is discriminatory against a group of people.

I would be ashamed with that law if I were you.
User avatar #348 - teoberry (02/25/2014) [-]
The law itself isn't discriminatory, did you read it? Everyone is allowed to enjoy a business, and not be discriminated based on race, religion, etc etc. Orientation is not there. Just like a straight person can be refused from a gay bar, a gay person can be refused from a straight place. Try not to use insults, it makes you look stupid
User avatar #315 - mads (02/25/2014) [-]
actually you can't throw someone out of your shop just because they are gay. That falls under discrimination laws.

In some cases, it is just something you're born with though to be honest. It's kind of like being born with a super power. but they need to learn to focus and control it, with the vocal training you know?
User avatar #210 - mads (02/22/2014) [-]
Yeah. You are born with the ability to hit the notes, it's just that if you don't do training regularly you will not be able to hit those notes for long. Or with enough strength. The same way some people are born with an affinity for an instrument. My friend, who plays guitar amazingly, says that it just makes sense to him. I mean he had training but he definitely has the natural talent. You can improvise like that without the natural talent. Same with singing. You just sort of feel it naturally. The only reason i am having vocal training is because enough people told me I have a good natural voice which I need training to focus it.

You defended talent shows for taking in "singers" when 98% of the people they've given fame to are terrible singers. And defending that show got me to talk about how that very show has glorified singing more then anything else. And it's utter bullshit.
User avatar #204 - mads (02/22/2014) [-]
I completely agree that it's utter bullshit that they take shit singers and make them famous. But that's not what I am talking about. I am talking about SINGERS, People like Etta James, Patti Labelle, Freddie Mercury, Patrick Stump, Tom Jones, Robert Plants. Even Lady Gaga has an amazing voice, just sad she ignores the style her voice fits.
But it doesn't mean that singing should be pushed down because it's something that is focused on at the moment. But the people who win those talent shows normally aren't actual singers, they are people who can hit enough notes to sell records. They are not singers

training your voice:

A) you have a good voice, born with it, you need like 2 or 3 minutes in your whole life to properly train it.( in comparison with example 2)

Example 2 also known as B) training any other thing:

you can spend all your life learning to paint or whatever and you can always become better and have to. And lets not talk about things which require practise, like ballet or fencing(with sword, not sabre or floret, because with sword the whole body is a target) There are thing better than singin in this world. They should be rewarded better. period. .
User avatar #201 - mads (02/22/2014) [-]
Do you think that signers only learn to sing once or twice in their life? Top singers go to their vocal trainers once or twice a week to make sure their voice is top. And when they are alone, at LEAST once a day they oh what's it callled? PRACTICE!

and yeah those talents are rewarded in their respective circles. It just so happens that music (playing an instrument) fits into EVERYONE'S field because music is a universal language.

Oh okay I get a passive aggressive response. FUCK YOU YOU PIECE OF SHIT SINGING IS EASY AS FUCK TO DO AND EVEN EASIER TO BE GILDED. Dafuq you talking about people "choose" the singer over anything? I WANT A FUCKING BAND. A HARMONY between guitar, drums, AND singer! (instruments may vary by your choice.) That's why I'm so in to bands like Rush and Led Zeppelin. People hear Robert Plants amazing voice and say "oh he sounds like a girl" or "this sounds like cats on heroine". Who the fuck can hold those notes like him? Who can makes these "random moans and noises" like an instrument to make a good harmony going between ALL of the band members, even the one without an instrument? I NEVER SAID it didn't take effort. You're just so full of yourself trying to learn to sing yourself. You make it sound like singing is everything there. Well it's not. Music isn't a thing of individual Objects. It takes different noises together to make nice music. American idol not only made it worse by glorifying the singers alone, they take mediocre singers and make their voices artificial. Like it's hard to find someone gifted with a voice of angels, It's even more difficult to find someone who can take an inanimate object, become so comfortable with it that it becomes apart of them, then use it to make certain, just right noises that can completely control the way you are feeling at the very moment the music hits you.

Did you even read that I am learning PIANO? Also I'm in a fucking band. I know what it's like that instruments play in perfect harmony. I am not full of myself because I am learning to sing. I just get fucking pissed off when the learning to sing side of it just kind of gets pushed to the side as 'natural talent that takes no effort'. I also want to learn to play guitar because it sound amazing when played by a master like Hendrix and I just want to do half of that. When the fuck did I say that other instruments didn't matter?

You know that people aren't born with good voices right? Well like a few people are but not a lot. Also people are born painters and artists. Some people are born with that talent. That's why it's called a fucking talent. Let's take Joss Stone, she is a 25 year old soul singer from Devon england. she has a hell of a voice and was found age 13 on a talent show. Right Ok? So she was born with that talent right? Didn't need practice? However if you listen to her recordings at say 16 and what she records now you can hear that her voice is 1 stronger 2 more sustained and 3 more controlled. Do you know how she did that? VOCAL TRAINING! you can learn to control your voice with practice and VOCAL TRAINING, this idea that people are born with the perfect singing voice fucking pisses me off. Every good singer you have has had VOCAL TRAINING. Also every famous painter you have seen was probably born with the talent to paint, yes they had practice but they are probably naturally talented. So yeah fuck off moron

Unfortunately. Shows like American Idol ruined music with their "singers only" thing they have going. No one wants to take the time and of COURSE not the effort to learn an instrument. That's talent to but everyone focuses on singing. So they go and get a decent voice and end up fixing it up on the computer anyways just to sell. Shame.
User avatar #178 - mads (02/22/2014) [-]
WHAT? NO ONE WANTS TO PUT EFFORT INTO LEARNING AN INSTRUMENT. Shut the fuck up. The voice is a fucking instrument that is SO difficult to control. You've never tried to learn to sing have you? It's not just like 'hit this note right' which is what you do when playing an instrument. In singing, proper singing it's 'hit this note with power, emotion and force while focus on what your face is doing and try to encapsulate the audience'. Fuck off with the whole 'well everyone just goes to learn to sing'. You know that people can kinda learn guitar and then fake it with little tricks to make themselves sound better? You know that pretty much everyone can learn an instrument, but not everyone can learn to SING. Yeah you can fix it with a computer but it will never be the same as a REAL voice. I am learning to sing at the moment so this just makes me want to scream! I am also learning piano, so I know how hard it is to learn an instrument. But never even talk about how singing doesn't take effort. I am not saying that instruments are easy to learn. But you can cheat an instrument by learning tricks. You can't really do that with singing. Yeah you can learn vocal tricks but they are more so you don't fuck your voice up. Also it's so much easier to define when a singer is good. It's not as easy to tell with anything else. You can show someone the most difficult piano piece ever written and the belt of a soul singer and people will choose the belting singer because it's easier to define to the untrained ear. Yes it's a shame, but those types of shows haven't killed or ruined music.

Every good singer you have has had VOCAL TRAINING. Also every famous painter you have seen was probably born with the talent to paint, yes they had practice but they are probably naturally talented. So yeah fuck off moron

training your voice:

A) you have a good voice, born with it, you need like 2 or 3 minutes in your whole life to properly train it.( in comparison with example 2)

Example 2 also known as B) training any other thing:

you can spend all your life learning to paint or whatever and you can always become better and have to. And lets not talk about things which require practise, like ballet or fencing(with sword, not sabre or floret, because with sword the whole body is a target) There are thing better than singin in this world. They should be rewarded better. period. .
User avatar #201 - mads (02/22/2014) [-]
Do you think that signers only learn to sing once or twice in their life? Top singers go to their vocal trainers once or twice a week to make sure their voice is top. And when they are alone, at LEAST once a day they oh what's it callled? PRACTICE!

and yeah those talents are rewarded in their respective circles. It just so happens that music (playing an instrument) fits into EVERYONE'S field because music is a universal language.

Most talent shows are looking for oddball talents, and singing is so popular and common
User avatar #174 - mads (02/22/2014) [-]
Yeah but it's still a fucking talent. Also talent shows are looking for something they can sell. They only care if you are so oddball that you will sell.
It just so happens music sells to everyone because it appeals to everyone
User avatar #176 - gggman (02/22/2014) [-]
Unfortunately. Shows like American Idol ruined music with their "singers only" thing they have going. No one wants to take the time and of COURSE not the effort to learn an instrument. That's talent to but everyone focuses on singing. So they go and get a decent voice and end up fixing it up on the computer anyways just to sell. Shame.
User avatar #178 - mads (02/22/2014) [-]
WHAT? NO ONE WANTS TO PUT EFFORT INTO LEARNING AN INSTRUMENT. Shut the fuck up. The voice is a fucking instrument that is SO difficult to control. You've never tried to learn to sing have you? It's not just like 'hit this note right' which is what you do when playing an instrument. In singing, proper singing it's 'hit this note with power, emotion and force while focus on what your face is doing and try to encapsulate the audience'. Fuck off with the whole 'well everyone just goes to learn to sing'. You know that people can kinda learn guitar and then fake it with little tricks to make themselves sound better? You know that pretty much everyone can learn an instrument, but not everyone can learn to SING. Yeah you can fix it with a computer but it will never be the same as a REAL voice. I am learning to sing at the moment so this just makes me want to scream! I am also learning piano, so I know how hard it is to learn an instrument. But never even talk about how singing doesn't take effort. I am not saying that instruments are easy to learn. But you can cheat an instrument by learning tricks. You can't really do that with singing. Yeah you can learn vocal tricks but they are more so you don't fuck your voice up. Also it's so much easier to define when a singer is good. It's not as easy to tell with anything else. You can show someone the most difficult piano piece ever written and the belt of a soul singer and people will choose the belting singer because it's easier to define to the untrained ear. Yes it's a shame, but those types of shows haven't killed or ruined music.
User avatar #195 - gggman (02/22/2014) [-]
Oh okay I get a passive aggressive response. FUCK YOU YOU PIECE OF SHIT SINGING IS EASY AS FUCK TO DO AND EVEN EASIER TO BE GILDED. Dafuq you talking about people "choose" the singer over anything? I WANT A FUCKING BAND. A HARMONY between guitar, drums, AND singer! (instruments may vary by your choice.) That's why I'm so in to bands like Rush and Led Zeppelin. People hear Robert Plants amazing voice and say "oh he sounds like a girl" or "this sounds like cats on heroine". Who the fuck can hold those notes like him? Who can makes these "random moans and noises" like an instrument to make a good harmony going between ALL of the band members, even the one without an instrument? I NEVER SAID it didn't take effort. You're just so full of yourself trying to learn to sing yourself. You make it sound like singing is everything there. Well it's not. Music isn't a thing of individual Objects. It takes different noises together to make nice music. American idol not only made it worse by glorifying the singers alone, they take mediocre singers and make their voices artificial. Like it's hard to find someone gifted with a voice of angels, It's even more difficult to find someone who can take an inanimate object, become so comfortable with it that it becomes apart of them, then use it to make certain, just right noises that can completely control the way you are feeling at the very moment the music hits you.
User avatar #200 - mads (02/22/2014) [-]
Did you even read that I am learning PIANO? Also I'm in a fucking band. I know what it's like that instruments play in perfect harmony. I am not full of myself because I am learning to sing. I just get fucking pissed off when the learning to sing side of it just kind of gets pushed to the side as 'natural talent that takes no effort'. I also want to learn to play guitar because it sound amazing when played by a master like Hendrix and I just want to do half of that. When the fuck did I say that other instruments didn't matter? I was just responding to your point that singing took little effort.
User avatar #203 - gggman (02/22/2014) [-]
You defended talent shows for taking in "singers" when 98% of the people they've given fame to are terrible singers. And defending that show got me to talk about how that very show has glorified singing more then anything else. And it's utter bullshit.
User avatar #204 - mads (02/22/2014) [-]
I completely agree that it's utter bullshit that they take shit singers and make them famous. But that's not what I am talking about. I am talking about SINGERS, People like Etta James, Patti Labelle, Freddie Mercury, Patrick Stump, Tom Jones, Robert Plants. Even Lady Gaga has an amazing voice, just sad she ignores the style her voice fits.
But it doesn't mean that singing should be pushed down because it's something that is focused on at the moment. But the people who win those talent shows normally aren't actual singers, they are people who can hit enough notes to sell records. They are not singers

User avatar #208 - mads (02/22/2014) [-]
Thanks it just pisses me off when people say singing doesn't take effort and that you are born with that talent/skill. I feel like more people should know what level of practice it takes to be able to sing properly.
User avatar #209 - gggman (02/22/2014) [-]
In some cases, it is just something you're born with though to be honest. It's kind of like being born with a super power. but they need to learn to focus and control it, with the vocal training you know?
User avatar #210 - mads (02/22/2014) [-]
Yeah. You are born with the ability to hit the notes, it's just that if you don't do training regularly you will not be able to hit those notes for long. Or with enough strength. The same way some people are born with an affinity for an instrument. My friend, who plays guitar amazingly, says that it just makes sense to him. I mean he had training but he definitely has the natural talent. You can improvise like that without the natural talent. Same with singing. You just sort of feel it naturally. The only reason i am having vocal training is because enough people told me I have a good natural voice which I need training to focus it.
User avatar #213 - gggman (02/22/2014) [-]
Good luck. I think if you've learned the piano, guitar could be easier for you, the whole both hands doing different motions at the same time was my only problem at first but since you have that with the piano already the guitar should be easy-ER

he means that singing is a very common talent (which you mostly get by being lucky at which human body you are born into, as you could be born into an ugly afro-american with no culture and no voice, and would never use the internet), and other talents like painting, require practising, UNLIKE singing, which doesnt require any practise, just the luck to have a good voice. morron.
User avatar #193 - mads (02/22/2014) [-]
You know that people aren't born with good voices right? Well like a few people are but not a lot. Also people are born painters and artists. Some people are born with that talent. That's why it's called a fucking talent. Let's take Joss Stone, she is a 25 year old soul singer from Devon england. she has a hell of a voice and was found age 13 on a talent show. Right Ok? So she was born with that talent right? Didn't need practice? However if you listen to her recordings at say 16 and what she records now you can hear that her voice is 1 stronger 2 more sustained and 3 more controlled. Do you know how she did that?

Not much.

And well kind of. They are making it so you have to opt in to view porn by ticking a box on the internet provider. If you don't then you have to have a block on all porn.
They are also putting more of a lock on child porn, which is brilliant and they are making all images or rape/implied rape/simulated rape illegal.
It's ******* annoying about the normal porn because it's basically because he doesn't want to be a parent and teach his child about porn and internet culture so he would rather blame everyone else. And by he I mean David Cameron our PM

Wait I didn't know Dane's didn't like the british royal family. I know a lot of British people don't, the french don't, the irish don't, germans don't. Actually I think the only country that actually loves them are the Americans.
But why don't the danes like them?
I mean I only like a few of them, but that's more to do with their personalities than their royal status

Hi, just want to say, I didn't mean to sound aggressive on your post about Doctor Who.

I just wanted to make it clear that MLP has done the same thing, as far as value's are concerned.

Doctor Who is an amazing show, and if you prefer it, I won't argue against that.
And if you prefer it to MLP, or just straight up don't like MLP, again, that's fine, your opinion.

I just wanted get my opinion out, too.
Most of us there weren't really being aggressive, we just wanted to get our point across.

Sorry if it looked different.
And also, thanks for not really being a hater.
You were pretty calm, with the gay community on your page.
