Well, I got through this without my head exploding, though I came damn well near.
”Hip-hop’s reverence for the past, always one of its most endearing qualities, devolved into an unwillingness to move forward. It’s been decades since A Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul forever expanded the boundaries and parameters of hip-hop, yet in some ways hip-hop has never evolved beyond the innovations people like Prince Paul and Q-Tip introduced when they weren’t even old enough to drink.” http://www.avclub.com/articles/90s-rap-in-the-rearviewan-introduction,75848/
And after this, I still was super-pissed, but a lot more calm.
Anonymous asked: Whats the average size for a penis?
In the last few years, it has become apparent that the average man’s penis is not as long as had been thought previously.
For decades, medical books and articles in the press have confidently stated that penile length is generally about 6.5 inches (16.5 centimetres).
As a result, a lot of males who are slightly shorter than this have felt rather inadequate.
However, it now seems that the statistics on which this ‘average’ was based could well have a serious flaw. It is this: the figure was originally calculated by collecting measurements that men had carried out themselves!
Self-measurement of this sort is notoriously unreliable.
Why? Because so many males don’t know where to measure from or use inaccurate rulers or ancient tape measures.
Also, there’s probably a tendency for guys to round their ‘scores’ upwards, in an attempt to make themselves sound better-endowed. And the results tend to be skewed by people who falsely claim to be 10 or 11 inches long.
In recent times, a number of scientists have attempted to obtain more reliable figures, by the simple expedient of employing a trained person to carry out the measurement of each man.
And the results, which they have produced, seem to indicate that the average adult male is considerably shorter than had been thought.
In reality, the mean length of the erect penis appears to be only about 5.88 inches (14.9 centimetres), which is considerably less than the ‘old’ measurement.
Does all this matter?
If you’re a woman, you probably think that this concern about fractions of an inch is rather silly.
But if you’re a man, you will know that such matters are – somewhat irrationally – of considerable importance to many males.
"Some might say, the movie is making fun of dictators of the Middle East, not necessarily Muslims. Do you honestly think that the average American knows the difference between a Baathist, Shi’I, Sunni, Sufi, Salafi or any of the political or religious divisions of the Middle East? As far as the average attendant of this movie, they’re all Muslim, and they gave the Dictator a big beard just to make sure they don’t get confused.
Some might say, you have to learn to lighten up and laugh at yourself. There is a difference between a community laughing at itself and the most hated minority in America being laughed at by others. This argument falls apart when you look at how every community in this country carries itself. Have a team of Caucasians create a movie about African American stereotypes and see how that community would react. Have a team of Arabs create a movie about Jewish stereotypes and see how that community would react.
The fact that this movie made it to the big screen indicates that Muslims are a community that no one is cautious of offending.”
