    I think the OP is a normal human being and Shkreli deserves that to happen on a daily basis.

    I had to look him up ... Ohhhh, it's that guy!

    He's not just a tool, he's the whole shed :rollno:
     
  7. If you read the whole story he says... "He added that his security team determined it was “leaves” that he “brushed off” his face.

    “The lack of smell, stain or other obvious findings eliminates the possibility," Shkreli said...."

    I was disappointed after reading that...

    If you've seen the interview where he insists on playing chess (think it's Vice), you would wish dog poo canons to be on him 24/7. Comes off so arrogant. Never wrong. Showoff etc. Bring on the poo!

    Yeah, the guy is a jerk. I get it. No arguing that.

    However, this mess of college kids having their minds closed by Professor Ponytail Berkenstocks is starting to drive me nuts. Colleges are supposed to be the very places where INTELLECTUAL fights take place. They are supposed to be the places where you are given ALL sides of a story and taught how to research it and draw your own conclusions. But if you ever said one sentence that the snowflakes don't agree with, or if you worked for "the other side" at some point, you are to be silenced and shut down, even if they have to get arrested or damage property. These days, drawing a conclusion other than that of your professor has academic consequences.

    What are they afraid of? It's as if they have literally been taught to FEAR allowing someone they disagree with to even speak somewhere near them.

    It's sad. They're weak. And their squishy little brains are being bent to the point they actually think they are strong....and that running off speakers with whom they disagree.....and forming a mob to yell about something they dislike rather than actually changing the conversation...... are all some sort of victory. They are not. They changed nothing yesterday. They literally, and figuratively, flung poop. That's all.

    Our country will remain split down the middle unless and until we start to listen to each other. I'm not saying we'll all agree with one another. We won't and we shouldn't. But throwing poop and shutting down the conversation altogether taught those students only one thing. They can shut down any speaker they disagree with even before hearing them long enough to know if they really disagree all that much.

    Before you jump, walk across the room and pick up your knee that just jerk ed to the point of breaking off, and understand that I think what this guy did was deplorable. Not even debating that. I think shutting down ANY speaker at a college is ridiculous. Dictators, politicians on both sides, good businessmen and bad businessmen, and religious (or anti religious) figures from all walks of life can teach them something.

    One reason why we don't "listen to each other" is because of people expressing their views in vitriolic, insulting rhetoric like this.

    I support free speech, and people picketing and protesting. I do NOT support this. Things like this can result in injury or sickness, not to mention the possibility of furthering violence, inciting a riot. Colleges are places where groups far out on both sides of the political/economic/etc. Spectrum should be free to present their points of view.

    i'm with bholder 's impulse, but i have to go with two fingers 's POV: better to let all points of view be heard. part of our current social 'conundrum', IMO, is that we want to tune out the opposition before they even make their point. it must be nice to be entitled.

    Yeah, honestly I'm with two fingers generally. I don't think this turd's ideas are worth hearing, but I would express my opinion by simply not listening. Not really the violent dog poop flinging type IRL. Thread was more for the laugh than a serious approval of the actions.

    Seems to me he's been lucky to only have suffered this indignity, albeit quite humorous gesture thus far, being the unapologetic jerkweasel that he is

    The irony of starting an "intellectual" argument this way is just too much for me.

    I'll listen to anybody. Their "style" of communication matters exactly zero to me.

    The intellectual part comes from disregarding style for substance....even if you disagree with the substance. I can have a conversation with anyone over any subject. They can be loud and obnoxious or timid. They can be 180 degrees opposite from my view on the given topic.

    Refusal to have the conversation, or even allow the conversation to occur, is the entitled snowflake punk's way out. :thumbsup: And they get that way by being "educated" and endoctrinated by entitled snowflake punks.
