The Lounge / Re: Death penalty (re; Bali 9 executions)

It's a thin line. Countries deserve a level of self determination which allows them to define which freedoms mean most to them but at the same time I do believe in a universal principle of basic human rights and if those rights are violated. The UN has the right to impede.

But this isn't genocide it's story of a bunch of foreigners who got caught doing a clearly illegal thing for profit. From what I can see there is no call for all Indonesian drug smugglers with similar fates to be freed, just these 9. Simply because they're foreigners from a more powerful nation.

Fuck that, if the majority thinks the minority ethnicity should be cleansed of the earth, standing by to let them govern themselves is bullshit.

Man genocide is something else compared to drug runners.

I do think a world police is needed in today's world, don't get me wrong, just that you can't expect the locals to wholeheartedly accept what some bigger nation proposes.

They're actually not white.

5 of the 9 are.

But it's not really a topic of white vs. any other race. It's about whether any country has the authority to have say over what another country does, what makes it acceptable that Western countries are allowed to impose their ideas over the rule of any other?

It's the equivalent of Muslims going crazy because some guy in France drew Muhammad. To them that's law. They broke it and they deserved the punishment cause their ideas of law are above everyone else. I'm not equating one to the other but if democracy truly is the best system to govern a region then let the people come to that conclusion by themselves, not let it be dictated by a bunch of outsiders who feel they know best for them.

There is a thought that a lot of immigrants hold which is that the Western world's hands aren't clean so who are they to pass judgement on another for their problems.

You don't go into someone else's house and tell them how to live. The guy broke the law and I'm sure he knew the penalty for it. There's only a fuss cause he's not from that country, if he were, no one would care.

Oh yeah Kendrick Lamar's new album should be good.

Fucking superman. Was the Nolan one any good?

I liked it but it's definitely not as introspective as the Batmans or anything.

I'm definitely looking forward to the new Modest Mouse album. Even though I'm not really feeling a few of the singles they put out.

History has proven getting first run of a new coaster is never a good idea.

I find this sort of weird, as nigel is "advancing" the sport and getting all this money, they end up canceling bmx street in the x games. How come "street" is getting less support as nigel is getting more popular with the mainstream public? Maybe he is ruining the image?

Also it is totally acceptable to feel like he is undeserving of his status/support he is getting. It's more dumbfoundment, rather than jealousy. All I can say is it can't last long, but that's just my prediction. It is still cool that he can make a living out of bmx.

You make it sound like Nigel is BMX street, which is definitely more credit than he deserves. Nigel is just one aspect.


I always hated this argument.

Dude makes millions selling (mostly to kids) himself as player and you don't want the responsibility of being a role model? Get real. In an ideal world a teacher should be making more cause at the end of the day all he's doing is dunking a ball.

The Bike Shop / Re: Probably your only chance to own Edwin's bike.

On a random note, Edwin always had the nicest bikes. I remember jocking his raw with purple stem setup, then he went orange stem and I wanted that too.

homie used to run work boots and just 1 peg in back was ill as hell

I saw someone run that setup probably like a year ago.

I heard of some skatepark church with a foam pit in hours deep into the country. So my friends and I went to check it out. When we got there, their were these older cats. One was riding like Primo Stogie peg on a older yellow Standard, his buddy had a S&M Holmes. Both bikes completely retrofitted out, both in work boots, it was like a glimpse into the past.
