Its called redistribution of wealth. I thought you were all for that.

Hilarious.

Or maybe it's just the liberal in me cooking up a story to cover up the fact that I lost it.

Re: how F'd up is this?

I actually have irrefutable evidence of media bias that I stumbled upon earlier today.

I'm a web designer and needed to grab an ad sample, so I headed to my favorite bi-partisan news source, ABC.com and grabbed a screenshot of one of their ads.

I inserted it into my layout and later on had to find the center of the ad to align a couple of other visual elements.

As this diagram below proves, the ad was designed with visual bias toward John McCain! The ad is 300px wide, which would lead one to believe that each candidate would get an equal 150px of space.

Not so. McCain is allotted 152px of space to Obama's 148px! Clearly there IS media bias, but it's in favor of the GOP, AND on a major national news source!



That amounts to a 1.3% bias in favor of McCain! Unbelievable!

In the interest of redistributing everything equally amongst all people, I strongly feel the ad should be split 50-50.

I also did this while at work, since it doesn't really matter if I work anymore because regardless of what I do I know that Mr. Obama will be sure to dip into some rich fat cat's pockets and give it to me. Score one laziness!

Re: how F'd up is this?

But Obama is skeleton skinny. Surely he fits into less space than McCain!

Re: how F'd up is this?

Upon further review, and some careful measuring, Obama's face takes up roughly 19,996 square pixels of real estate, while McCain's face only takes up 17,236 square pixels.

As saden1 acutely pointed out, Obama IS freakishly skinny. Perhaps he needs more space than McCain due to his having the physical proportions of a bobblehead.

Furthermore, as most western readers read from left to right, Obama's face will generally be perceived first.

Clearly a liberal media bias after all. I retract my original statement and now stand by this new one.

Re: how F'd up is this?

This is one of my biggest fears when showing my house! This falls squarly on the shoulders of the realtor showing your house. I have had the same realtor for like ten years bought and sold three times with him, basically consider him a friend. He still won't leave my side as we walk through homes that I might potential buy. All realtors need to be like that!

Re: how F'd up is this?

Take all of the game discs out, but leave the empty cases on your shelf with a note in each saying "Nice try, motherfucker. I have you on tape - start running."

Then ask your agent after the next open house if anyone left in a hurry.

Re: how F'd up is this?

lol good idea, it's pathetic that I'll have to lock up my games from now on. I'm off to the store today to buy a used copy of COD4. I think it will be the first time I'm ticked off buying a game.
