Darth_Vader  ·  3203 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Why should I use Hubski?

I disagree, Hubski's interface is hardly anything way out of the ordinary for it's kind of site; you have voting where the community decides what gets the most attention, your information and other tools are at the top, and you can follow users as well as tags; these are all things that people know from reddit or twitter, although it does take a day or two to learn the ropes of Hubski, I feel as though the sober aestethic (No image previews, very little bright colors) and the small, polite community (Which can be intimidating.) do more to make the site what it is. Lastly, you can't really blame a particular age group for reddit's current state, the one common denominator of the bad parts of reddit is a large reader base, /r/teenagers was a pretty polite place last I checked.

Well, it seems like they make a pretty good case for why cetaceans should at least be granted a higher legal status than other animals, but I don't understand when they say we should "end their use in entertainment"; if a killer whale can work alongside a fisherman, then a dolphin should be able to understand the concept of working for pay in the entertainment business.

Any album by Gorillaz, the music is so versatile and varied, you can have it as background for almost any situation.

This is pretty brilliant even if the drawings are less than expertly done, though they sure don't explain their initialisms.

Quick question, how's the comedy around here? I've only really lurked a tiny bit, and this place strikes me as rather serious, not in an intimidating uptight manner, but rather like the kind of place where I would get ugly looks for making a "yo momma" joke.
