It always bothers me when movie posters can't put the actors name with the corresponding actor. Would it have been that hard to switch Steve Zahn and Penelope Cruz's names around?

It's because their billing agreements are made far before, and without consolation, the photographers and advertisement designers even get to working. Even if they did get to know the order of the names they would limitin themselves aesthetically to match them.

Here's an interesting one: Steve McQueen and Paul Newman both wanted first billing on The Towering Inferno. To reach an agreement McQueen was given "first" billing on the left but Newman was given "highest" billing. First time names were placed on different levels as so.

The peak of Kony / LRA's dominance was in like 2002, they signed a "peace" agreement in 2003 and less kids have been kidnapped each year since then, about 75-80% less now. For how late the rest of the world is to this party I hope Kony starts kidnapping ignorant hipster cunts and beating them to death with juvenile femurs.

We shouldn't care because 69,000 kids are abducted in the United States of the 800,000 reported missing annually. Invisible Children is a bullshit organization that isn't very transparent about how they spend their funds. Kony's LRA signed a peace agreement in 2003 and has been killing and kidnapping less since then. Does it make the murders or kidnappings right? No, and I never implied that. I implied you're fucking stupid if you were suddenly moved by this video because you're too fucking lazy to understand your surroundings unless it's artfully presented to you on YouTube.

I'm not saying that Kony 2012 is running things right, but I hate when people say, "Why should we care about problem B, when there is this other problem, problem A, that is bigger?" There is, more than likely, Group A, Group B, and Group C supporting the fight against the abduction of American kids. Just because Group D is trying to do something else, something outside of our country, doesn't mean they should be obsolete. You should be upset that Group A, Group B, and Group C aren't doing a good enough job, if you find yourself upset that people are supporting things different from their cause.

I mean, I'm not going to be upset about the Humane Society and say, "How can they protect animals, when there are so many humans who need protecting!?"

Kony's abducted the same amount of kids since 1987 as were abducted from America last year. I'm upset that isn't an issue to white people who pretend everything's gravy over here.

It's not about Group A, B, C or really the dopes who made this video. It's about retards waking up to something that happens every day on a much larger scale right in front of them (minus militias) and thinks now's the time to give a shit about a guy who's practically in exile. THAT is what sucks about all of this. The fact the organization is shitty is really just a nice bonus on top of this bullshit, never mind the fact that the Ugandan Government doesn't have a clean human rights record itself.

As for your Humane Society bit, I wasn't comparing species. If we were to use that logic, it would be more appropriate to say why do we give a shit about a puppy mill in Uganda. Your argument is nonsense. Am I morally opposed to everything Kony does? Of course I am. My question as a citizen of a country that experiences 25 times the amount of abductions per year is why are we supposed to give a shit now when babies with AK-47s was popular enough to put in a Nicholas Cage movie in 2005.

This isn't new. This isn't fresh. Kony very well may not be in Uganda. His abductions have for the most part recently been carried out by those faithful to him. Sex slavery abductions happen in America. So we differ on giving the abducted boys dicks instead of guns and the fact a shitload more happen here and our country is better at masking its shortcomings is supposed to make me sensitive to Invisible Children's message or goal how? I give a shit about the fact children are abducted, murdered, raped and sent to war. I do not care what half-assed social media twats want to promote about something they learned 10 minutes ago. If any of this truly hit home they wouldn't be spreading it on websites feigning good doings.

It's presumptious and you are coming off as a raging asshole when you start calling everyone a fucking idiot for not knowing everything you do at the same time you learn about it. Many charities have flaws and aren't worth much effort. We know this. Yes, people should do their research before donating but to act self-righteous because you read a book and saw some Nicholas Cage movie on the subject years ago is retarded.

This isn't about prior knowledge. It's beginning to sound more like you being insecure that you cared about something before you read into it and yelling at me because you think I'm personally calling you an idiot. Cry less, read more. You didn't start these threads and you like to argue because you think you're good at it. Stats are facts, and that's education. I shouldn't have to "teach" you anymore than a quick Google search with the DOJ could do for you in 10 seconds. ]

And guess what, since you think you're so quick on the stats and my lack of education on the subject, if 82% aren't that big a deal on paper that means there were still 310,000 abductions that "mattered" in the United States since 1987. That's over 4 times the amount that Kony's been responsible for. The difference when I "rattle off stats" and when you think you're doing the same is typically you're just being an angry prick. I'm not trying to be some guru on a subject I actually spent more than 10 minutes researching, I just simply did more than you. Sorry it's upset you so much.

And I can tell you what I don't do with regard to the problems facing American child abduction: I don't post Hollywood babble to my Facebook wall pretending I'm Jimmy Carter for 48 hours. That's what I certainly don't do. You want awareness? Interestingly enough any involvement I had started with Bill Hillar, who is now known as a fraud and lied about his daughter being sold into sex slavery. He's the basis for the movie Taken. He attended the University of Oregon for some time and spoke to us on several occasions. After he disappeared I still donated time and research, along with several of my peers to the Multnomah County's Human Trafficking department as Portland is one of the busier areas for this trade. Never mind the fact I personally was taken from the Field Museum in Chicago for 6 hours but because I kept talking to everybody we bumped into, the couple left me at a nearby McDonald's. My father's questionable behavior leading up to that moment is still one of the top reasons my mother left my father.

But really now, you're a grown man with a keyboard and fingers. I shouldn't have to teach you dick if the stats don't work for you.

Saying that child abductions in Uganda isn't a pressing issue because there are more abductions in the US seems wrong to me. Both are big deals. What makes Kony's more reprehensible is that he is putting these children into military combat, to kill, use as sex slaves, or other political advantages which under the Geneva convention is any child under 15 years old. That is the main concern.

As much as you dismiss what IC has done, it has brought the topic to the attention of many who otherwise be distracted from day to day life of America. Americans as it is don't know enough about world issues compared to our counterparts in other countries. While most of us will not take the time to learn more about the issue than the documentary, the IC will stimulate discussion in those who are interested to learn and in the end may spark the brain that will make changes. Even to those who aren't going to become fully involved, it is good that the issue is hashed out and discussed such as seen on this board about Kony, IC and even child abductions in the US. I just wish the discussions were all on one thread instead of 5+.



Both change the world in the exact same way.

Fax: Nowhere, in any of my posts did I tell you that you were wrong about all social issues. I said you liked to argue, which frankly, I don't think anybody would disagree with. Whether you're wrong or right, you argue. About everything. In this particular instance, on this insignificant subject, and on this insignificant day I just happened to have more substance to back my claims. You'll have your days where you'll know more about a topic than someone else. It's life. It's conversation. You're just being weird now.


Teach me more.



You shouldn't have to teach me dick and you haven't. You'll teach very few with your bravado.


Do you not see why this is aggravating? I wasn't trying to teach. You asked. You asked me to teach, then tell me I don't have to teach and haven't? Shut the hell up. I really don't care if an attitude shows through on something that really at this point is less about opinion and more about what's actually going on in the world. If someone tells you the answer to a math problem in a nice tone, and the other one tells you that you're stupid for being dramatic but gives you the right answer are you going to fail miserably because you judge correctness based on your feelings? I wasn't really "targeting" you specifically but you've proven just how pointless support for this movement is when the best you can do when faced with the facts is essentially call me a dick after being a monumental one yourself.

I don't care what's unbecoming of my ability to convey a point about an African country on a random Thursday. Stop assuming it's my job to not only do it right but do it so that you feel good about it simply because you couldn't muster few extra clicks with your mouse.

You read my argument incorrectly. I know you weren't comparing species. I was arguing that you can't ignore minor problems just because larger problems still exist. You are making the assumption that we do not have resources to deal with multiple problems, and so things like Kony 2012 (let's assume, for the sake of argument, that they have everything in good order) are bad, because we should only have groups that support our most pressing cause (or a few of our most pressing causes). I'm not talking about country to country with the Humane Society (because that isn't the flaw in your logic); I'm saying that dogs and cats are not as important as human children (because you think some charities aren't important enough to exist).

I've donated money to the Gorilla Organization, which attempts to stop poachers from hunting gorillas in Africa. That isn't terribly vital as far as humanity is concerned, but does that mean the Gorilla Organization should not exist? Does that mean people - especially Americans - shouldn't donate to them?

I would disagree with you if you felt that the Gorilla Organization was obsolete in America. It is run by people who believe in that cause, and those people happen to include Americans. Even if some guy started a charity to find one girl, from some random village in Mongolia, who was abducted for sex slavery, I think it would be fine for him to run his charity and for people to donate. If he can get people to believe in his cause, and he is working his charity in a good manner, why should we criticize him? Again, it's not like there aren't people trying to fix American abductions.

Plus, in all the time you've been complaining about Kony 2012, have you bothered to inform anyone on how they can help stop these American abductions? Where is your charitable thread? Wouldn't it be more helpful to do something for your cause, than to complain about the unrelated ones?

Shit, i'd love to travel there. Every country has wonderful culture and things to see especially those that have not been flooded with tourists. I'm not that adventurous to go with rebel groups pressent but who knows maybe one day...but getting off topic here.

Please point to Uganda.

All of that is Uganda, because her children is spread upon all of that place. Today, we are all Uganda. Change your facebook picture if you are Uganda today.

I have a friend from Mozambique, and I always thought how cool it would be to visit that place with her... Because, honestly, I think that's the only way I'd go to Africa.

the bottleneck tribe of 2000 homo sapiens actually most likely came from somewhere far north of uganda when the sahara was still grasslands.

It's far more likely that no human alive today was from where uganda is today.

Kony is so batshit insane that he probably won't be mentally competent to stand trial.

This isn't about prior knowledge. It's beginning to sound more like you being insecure that you cared about something before you read into it and yelling at me because you think I'm personally calling you an idiot. Cry less, read more. You didn't start these threads and you like to argue because you think you're good at it. Stats are facts, and that's education. I shouldn't have to "teach" you anymore than a quick Google search with the DOJ could do for you in 10 seconds. ]

And guess what, since you think you're so quick on the stats and my lack of education on the subject, if 82% aren't that big a deal on paper that means there were still 310,000 abductions that "mattered" in the United States since 1987. That's over 4 times the amount that Kony's been responsible for. The difference when I "rattle off stats" and when you think you're doing the same is typically you're just being an angry prick. I'm not trying to be some guru on a subject I actually spent more than 10 minutes researching, I just simply did more than you. Sorry it's upset you so much.

And I can tell you what I don't do with regard to the problems facing American child abduction: I don't post Hollywood babble to my Facebook wall pretending I'm Jimmy Carter for 48 hours. That's what I certainly don't do. You want awareness? Interestingly enough any involvement I had started with Bill Hillar, who is now known as a fraud and lied about his daughter being sold into sex slavery. He's the basis for the movie Taken. He attended the University of Oregon for some time and spoke to us on several occasions. After he disappeared I still donated time and research, along with several of my peers to the Multnomah County's Human Trafficking department as Portland is one of the busier areas for this trade. Never mind the fact I personally was taken from the Field Museum in Chicago for 6 hours but because I kept talking to everybody we bumped into, the couple left me at a nearby McDonald's. My father's questionable behavior leading up to that moment is still one of the top reasons my mother left my father.

But really now, you're a grown man with a keyboard and fingers. I shouldn't have to teach you dick if the stats don't work for you.

Weekly, you do realize that half of reported child abductions in the US are by family members of the child? A father who's lost custody of his kids and decides to pick them up at school and flee the state. That kind of thing. It's pretty disingenuous to compare those statistics to what's going on in Africa. I haven't watched the video that everyone is yammering about and I haven't read any books on the matter. I'm blissfully ignorant, but I can do half ass google search as well as the next guy and this is what I found.

*Every 40 seconds in the United States, a child becomes missing or is abducted.

*In 2001, 840,279 people (adults and children) were reported missing to the FBI's National Crime Information Center (NCIC). The FBI estimates that 85 to 90 percent of those (roughly 750,000 people or 2,000 per day) reported missing were children. The vast majority of these cases are resolved within hours.

*Based on the identity of the perpetrator, there are three distinct types of kidnapping: kidnapping by a relative of the victim or "family kidnapping" (49 percent), kidnapping by an acquaintance of the victim or "acquaintance kidnapping" (27 percent), and kidnapping by a stranger to the victim or "stranger kidnapping" (24 percent). Family kidnapping is committed primarily by parents, involves a larger percentage of female perpetrators (43 percent) than other types of kidnapping offenses, occurs more frequently to children under 6, equally victimizes juveniles of both sexes, and most often originates in the home.

If you search the Kony threads you will see weekly already replied to this today when I brought this up. This was almost exactly what I said. He is so enraged and posting in all of the Kony threads though so watch out. There is no way you can possibly justify this charity is worthwhile in any way to him at all.
