Marc doing the multiple interruption cut to's at the begining was really funny.

Cluedo was actually the original name; it was called Clue when brought over to North America because the Pachisi variant "Ludo," upon which "Cluedo" is a pun, isn't well known this side of the pond.

That's dumb.

I didn't expect so much hate for Caramel?

Is it just me, or do people not understand what the definition of 'hate' is anymore?

But with this guy's context, you have to think it sounds pretty bad, right? If this was a salesperson or a motivational speaker, then that's one thing. When the guy's entire object is to get in with those 'pieces of ass' (respectfully)....then it's a little worrisome.

I mean, why does he even need to worry about this when he's got that crazy strong 'kite' analogy to lead with?

I said that it was probably bad in context, and that I didn't listen to the episode, or agree with pick up stuff. I just feel like there's nothing wrong with that statement in a vacuum, and your post made it seem like that sentence was your breaking point.

I was just trying to clarify.

Ummmmmm you know Belle is a fictional character, right? This is not a great example. Of course anyone can change their mind about anything (I used to not like eating mushrooms and now I do), that sentence picked out alone is a truism, but I'm not sure why that matters.

Anyway, I am glad everyone thinks Ross Jeffries is a scrote.

A universal fairy tale, wherein a character changes her mind in regard to her feelings about another character is a bad example? Okay. That's why I also said that I've changed my mind about people.

Luke's post mattered to me because that sentence was singled out as evidence of the guy's scumminess... But there's nothing wrong with that quote if you don't know the context. Everyone is allowed to change their minds and first impressions aren't everything.

All I'm saying is that context is as important as content... Even though nobody is arguing otherwise. I just posted that for myself.

"A woman's first response isn't always her real answer."

Whoa. ANNNNNNDDDDD stopping the podcast.

I'm not defending this guy, I don't do that pick up stuff, and I didn't even listen to the episode... But that statement is true, in a vacuum. Every person's first response isn't always that they think later. They have a right to change their minds when more information becomes available to them. I've met plenty of people I disliked at first and was ultimately fine with, and vice versa.

For example, woman like Belle might be freaked out by the Beast in Beauty and the Beast, but falls in love with him. Her first response wasn't what she thought by the end.

However, applying that statement to something scummy and date rapey in a 'no means yes' kind of way is a whole other can of worms. (And I'm sure that's what this guy meant.)

I just feel like that sentence alone isn't that bad, it's the intent with which it's said that determines that.

In fairness to Gotham's local thugs, there IS a giant bat who flies around and does stuff (Man-Bat). So I could see how they would think there is one targeting them.

No wonder why DC has been so successful; I mean, the ingenuity of the writers to come up with unique names like Batman AND Man-Bat?

Truly staggering!
