1. Anonymous asked: I'm glad that you have prepared for the backlash of challenging body positivity at the detriment of good health.

    I don’t think fat positive blogs and good health are mutually exclusive. For instance, I’m overweight and reading insane posts on fat blogs motivates me to eat healthier and go to the gym more often. The thought of turning into someone who writes essay-length posts on tumblr about how JCPenney should keep more XXXXXXL shirts in stock is infinitely more terrifying than the specters of diabetes and heart disease

     

  2. Anonymous asked: this isn't hate (I actually agree with you) but I just want to see another picture of a fat dog please

     

  3. Anonymous asked: are you a doctor? no? then stop acting like you know all the ins and outs of how weight loss relates to health. someone who weighs 300 pounds could be healthier than someone who weighs 100. it's not your place to dictate to people how to live their lives. peace

     

  4. fancycake asked: in all seriousness, how does a body positivity documentary fall under the same heading of the type of shit that's usually posted here?

     

  5. Anonymous asked: Just saying, but your gonna get a load of hate for that body-positive kickstarter, post.

    I’ve prepared a number of pictures of fat dogs

     
  6. The media and other cultural sources say that people need to lose weight - that obesity is a deadly epidemic, but there is scientific research that shows that weight loss and health are not linked like we think they are. For example, according to ASDAH, “Weight and BMI are poor predictors of disease and longevity. The bulk of epidemiological evidence suggests that five pounds “underweight” is more dangerous than 75 pounds “overweight.”

    Finally, a documentary that showcases fringe writers who claim obesity causes no health problems, fat-positive bloggers and amateur cultural critics who think Shrek is an example of anti-fat bigotry. This is the good shit

     

  7. Man gets dumped by his girlfriend and is lumbered with her dog,  so comes up the genius idea of using said dog as a cart horse to carry his beer around all day long.

    No mass-production of the item,  he wants $1,500 to make a new one and the maximum tier reward is to give you the old one.

     

  8. Impoverished kids love the soccer ball that powers a lamp — until it breaks

    But questions remain about the quality and durability of the product. Last year, the company raised more than $92,000 through the fundraising website Kickstarter. Contributors were promised Socckets in return for their backing, but some who received the product in just the last few weeks have complained about shoddy workmanship and flickering light bulbs. [On April 1, Matthews responded in a letter to her company’s Kickstarter backers: “Currently, we are working closely with our overseas vendors and manufacturing partners to improve the durability of the ball…”]

    When I asked Matthews about these continuing problems, she grew defensive.

    "This seems a little bit like a general attack on young adults trying to do something good,” she said. “It seems really sad that this is something that you’d want to do."

    But the goal of my investigation was not to determine if the developers of the Soccket were trying to do something good; it was to find out if they had achieved something good.

  10. Please give this man 5 grand for his innovative idea of “watch me play video games”. He plans to get rich off of YouTube ads and just needs a little boost from you. 

    Well I have 4 children to support

    Will branch off to making Crazy Rants (Hopefully comical)

    I am living off my income taxes right now. And my funds are running low. So with a part time job and the money I will be able to pay rent for a year. That way I will have time for the Youtube videos. Other wise I will have to get a full time job and only have time for maybe one video a month. I just started the Youtube channel and I know it will take about year to get any kind of audience and that is only if I can make weekly videos and have set schedule that my viewers can really on. So to put it in simple terms, I will use the money to live off of so that I may have time to create these Youtube videos

    yourkickstartersucks:

    A number of people have asked what the licencing/copyright issues will be so I will answer it here. 

    Nintendo still own every copyright to the pokémon franchise so as a result, they have every right to take down the project. 

    Everything except the locations, names and some minor aspects will be custom made by myself and my team, meaning that any references to copyrighted images/music etc will be invalid as it is our own creation.

    So he’s outright stating that the project can and probably will be shut down for trademark infringement yet he still expects people to give him $1,500 on the off chance that Nintendo won’t notice an unlicensed Pokemon game in the iOS app store. Good shit

    Those are Pounds, not dollars.

    In US dollars, 1,500 pounds is $2486.70

    they need $2500 for a copyright breaching iOS app.

    Good catch

  15. leeannelfilm asked: Could you explain to me why 50 States in 50 Days sucks? I think it is really awful that you take real projects, peoples dreams, and bash them. These are young filmmakers and you are beginning their careers with bad press. This is not humor - it is scum. I truly hope that the press you gave them gets them more views and donations.
