    You're not permitted to talk about culture since the speed folk thread.

    What can you do? That 21-year-old might have been wearing a hoodie or something. Clearly the "douchebag" had to stand his ground against this dangerous attacker.

    Die Hard is one of my favorite movies. Thems fightin' words. ;)

    Seriously Bruce Willis' character never stomped anyones ass for complimenting his car. Interesting you mention John Wayne, since one of the bad guys calls McClain a John Wayne type, and McClaine says he was partial to Roy Rogers actually. Hence the origin of the yippi ki yay line.

    Simply the greatest action movie aside from Terminator 1 and 2.

    At least in the US the judges know how to sentence poeple like this. In Austalia, he'd get a slap on the wrist and plced on a good behaviour bond.

    Retards like this should be in jail. There are plenty of like minded people in there he can fight.

    That's not analogous. And there's nothing feminist about the dentist pulling her ex's teeth.

    On a quick glance that graph pretty closely follows income inequality trends.

    There is no relationship between egalitarianism and homicide rates. Did you know that Pakistan and Bangladesh are among the most egalitarian parts of the world, with some of the least stratification in income and economic status? Their RP10% is roughly 6.5, much less than that of Switzerland, Australia, Netherlands, Canada and other places. Yet their homicide rate is 7.3, much more than those aforementioned countries. You won't prove what you're looking to prove by citing correlation.

    thanks for making my point for me. Pakistan has massive inequality. There's basically two tax systems and two legal systems simply based on income.

    We are talking about income inequality though, and in that regard Pakistan is one of the least unequal places in the world. Do you think the correlation between their low income inequality rate and high homicide rate means anything? If not, why do you hold double standards for USA?

    Often with these sorts of situations there's more to the story then what gets reported. Obviously, punching someone into a coma is generally unacceptable behavior, but I find it rather likely that something else might be at work here.

    It was really Barrack Hussein Obama who punched the man. Daman Lehman is only a cover up invented by the CIA. If I stop posting after this than I've probably been assassinated.

    No, because I think a "macho culture" can lead to a guy acting excessively macho, whereas a feminist culture wouldn't lead to a woman being crazy and nothing to do with feminist. In fact I'd think a feminist culture could result in the opposite. Also, I think attackfighter was probably on to something.
    First, Pakistan has a very real level of income inequality even by macro measurements. But more important, Pakistan has a massive quality of life inequality, which causally should be the same. Pakistan has major political inequality as well.

    Still, your logic is backward here. You are saying because

    *if a high murder rate can happen in a country with a lack of inequality,
    *then a high murder rate should not happen in a country with high income inequality.

    But that just doesn't follow. There can be multiple causes of high murder rates without negating the relevance of others.
