Image of Global warming - no pressure

During the Spanish Inquisition, the Catholic Church authorized massive torture and violence against so-called "heretics" (non-conformists/non-believers). Although this history has been mocked by the likes of Mel Brooks and Monty Python, clearly, torture and violence are no laughing matter. Or are they? Do you support brute force against people who don't do what you want? How about murdering them if they don't do what you want... including children? Isn't it proper that, if someone disagrees with you, they should die? Liberals are angry at Tea Party protest signs, but they are very silent on the violence advocated in this film.

Be clear that this film is not suggesting the extermination of all human beings - just those who disagree. Insert any ideology into this film... don't agree with your government? (Pushes red button. Splat.) Don't believe in God? (Pushes red button. Splat.) Don't "support the troops?" (Pushes red button. Splat.) You won't recycle? (Pushes red button. Splat.) Don't want to purchase the products of this film's partners, or listen to Radiohead (who donated music to the film)? (Pushes red button. Splat.)

Putting aside 10:10's apologies for releasing this film (here and here), what do you think of the message? Does it motivate you to do something about global warming... I mean climate change... I mean global climate disruption? (After being caught "green-handed" in fraud through the ClimateGate scandal, a bit of rebranding was in order. After all, it worked for Blackwater, didn't it?) Do you think the video is funny, thought-provoking... or "bloody" stupid (pun intended)?

About braincrave


We all admire beauty, but the mind ultimately must be stimulated for maximum arousal. Longevity in relationships cannot occur without a meeting of the minds. And that is what Braincrave is: a dating venue where minds meet. Learn about the thoughts of your potential match on deeper topics... topics that spawn your own insights around what you think, the choices you make, and the actions you take.

We are a community of men and women who seek beauty and stimulation through our minds. We find ideas, education, and self-improvement sexy. We think intelligence is hot. But Braincrave is more than brains and I.Q. alone. We are curious. We have common sense. We value and offer wisdom. We experiment. We have great imaginations. We devour literacy. We are intellectually honest. We support and encourage each other to be better.

You might be lonely but you aren't alone.

Sep, 2017 update: Although Braincrave resulted in two confirmed marriages, the venture didn't meet financial targets. Rather than updating our outdated code base, we've removed all previous dating profiles and retained the articles that continue to generate interest. Moving to valME.io's platform supports dating profiles (which you are welcome to post) but won't allow typical date-matching functionality (e.g., location proximity, attribute similarity).

The Braincrave.com discussion group on Second Life was a twice-daily intellectual group discussions typically held at 12:00 PM SLT (PST) and 7:00 PM SLT. The discussions took place in Second Life group chat but are no longer formally scheduled or managed. The daily articles were used to encourage the discussions.
