Let go of the bars and you'll die.

If someone on here did it, I'd probably like it. Since it was done by someone I don't know, they're a fucking idiot.

I remember when that movie came out and I was like, "Is that guy in fucking blackface? I'm pretty sure that's not ok."
And then everybody was like, "No, it's cool. The movie's actually really funny so it's ok."
Still haven't seen that movie.
And yet I somehow know where the reference is from.

is blackface ok when the purpose of the blackface is partially to show how offensive blackface is? like lethal weapon 5 and 6.

why did darrel hammond get a blackface pass for his jesse jackson character on snl?

i was legit thinking about blackface on the way to work this morning. so im fuckin READY for this convo.

I'm OK with it if it's partially showing how offensive it is, but I'm a CIS white male scumlord, so I'm not sure my opinion is really valid on this one.

the movie is *about* blackface among other exploitations, the blatant hubris of actors, and how getting introspective about it only takes it to more absurd lengths

the b-plot throughout is about how the sausage is made in hollywood

This guy gets it. 9/8" or 28.6mm is the correct answer. 1.125 and 1 1/8 is too much typing. No need to make change in order to communicate clearly. I have also seen this when communicating geologic time: 1,400 million years is easier for people to wrap their brains around than 1.4 billion years, and 1,432 thousand years is easier for people to compare to 768 thousand years than 1.432 million years. As demonstrated in this thread, people are bad at math.

And if you take the time to watch Rain of Madness, the spoof documentary by Ze Mozt German Evah™ "Jahn Jürgen" it digs even deeper into the fucked-upness of blackface and mental instability of big shot actors and the whole shebang.

Sure, if you're in the habit of using fractions incorrectly and think 9/8 is fine you might actually misread the standard 1 1/8 as eleven eighths. This is why it's important to simplify fractions in the first place.

While all that may be true, it doesn't change the fact that to most people it's just this:

And using that phrase or a gif like this one isn't satire anymore, it's just nasty internet stupidness.

That's probably the least ambiguous way to make change on that measurement, and seems to be pretty standard. The joke on Mr Organ is that without an equals sign, it's really not a subtraction at all. 1-1/8" is the same a 9/8", and 1"-1/8" is the same as 7/8"
