Re: The Week in Blog: Weird in Washington (Bill Scher & Kristen Soltis)

Alas, I have learned to keep my comments to myself.

Re: Words Are Wind (Robert Farley & Michael Cohen)

Did I just have an auditory hallucination? Farley arguing that nuclear proliferation has a rationalizing effect (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/40251?in=18:24&out=18:57) on hostile actors? ...

Re: Penny For Your Thoughts (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

I guess if there's going to be an adjustment to bloggingheads content, I can handle more Bob and Mickey, and less Michelle Goldberg, Tim Fernholz, Amanda Marcotte, et. al.

Re: Dunkirk (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

Haaaa! That's funny.

Re: Science Saturday: Exercising Self-Control (Joshua Knobe & Roy Baumeister)

You're waaay overblowing the casual "he/she's hot" comment. It's nothing as evocative as a sexual expression, and it's certainly not an expression of lust. It's very simply just a casual...

Re: Science Saturday: Exercising Self-Control (Joshua Knobe & Roy Baumeister)

Fair enough. Though, I won't hesitate to tell a gal she has pretty eyes.

Ha! have you ever been pepper-sprayed in the face before? I have, and it hurts...really bad.

I'll take your word for it. This inconsistency is the reason I call for official clarification.

Re: Science Saturday: Exercising Self-Control (Joshua Knobe & Roy Baumeister)

Obviously saying, "you look sexy" has more of a sexual connotation, but nobody said that. And saying "You're hot" is more along the lines of slang for "you're attractive". My larger point is that...

Re: Science Saturday: Exercising Self-Control (Joshua Knobe & Roy Baumeister)

I think you're right on the money, Don Zeko.

On the flip side, the argument about women being more sensitive to aesthetic critique sort of reminds me of the notion of the soft bigotry of low...

Re: Science Saturday: Exercising Self-Control (Joshua Knobe & Roy Baumeister)

Overtly sexual? Hardly. I stand by my claim that there is a sort of gender bias at play here. It's ok to make demeaning aesthetic judgments about men, but not ok to remark, even positively, about...

Re: Science Saturday: Exercising Self-Control (Joshua Knobe & Roy Baumeister)

Let me state with as much emphasis as humanly possible that I did not call Conn Carroll hot. I will say, however, that Julian Sanchez is looking quite dapper in his vest and tie.

Bottom line is...

Is classiness like obscenity, the moderator knows it when he sees it? That doesn't seem right.

Re: Science Saturday: Exercising Self-Control (Joshua Knobe & Roy Baumeister)

I think she would have appreciated it also, although it's hard to know these days. Complimenting someone on their looks is regarded by some as tantamount to sexual harassment. I know, I know...it's...

Re: Science Saturday: Exercising Self-Control (Joshua Knobe & Roy Baumeister)

Of course it was tangential! I don't remember reading in the rules that comments had to strictly pertain to arguments made in the diavlog. In fact, commenters go on tangents all the time - I was...

Re: Science Saturday: Exercising Self-Control (Joshua Knobe & Roy Baumeister)

Ha, yeah, the Lewis masturbation comment/moment was pretty funny, but it could have been waaaay more awkward than it actually was. Soltis sort of just giggled it off.

Anywho - saying that Knobe...

Re: Science Saturday: Exercising Self-Control (Joshua Knobe & Roy Baumeister)

I'm not interested in your opinion. I want to hear from an official bloggingheads representative on where the line is drawn.

Re: Science Saturday: Exercising Self-Control (Joshua Knobe & Roy Baumeister)

Dear Bloggingheads thread moderator: Why is that other people can comment on a diavlogger's aesthetic, as seen above, or as seen in comments about Fernholz's goofball glasses, but when I comment...

Re: Horse and Zebra Edition (Tim Fernholz & Timothy Carney)

You're kidding, right?

You saw "good-natured and civil", when Fernholz was snickering like a little girl, interrupting Carney every few words uttered, and borderline calling Carney crazy because...

Re: Horse and Zebra Edition (Tim Fernholz & Timothy Carney)

Only a few minutes in, but it seems in Tim Fernholz's last couple diavlogs, or since he got completely manhandled by Kevin Williamson, he's been overly abrasive. It's pretty obnoxious.

Besides,...
