Well get the fück out of the way next time
Didn’t even flinch. What a pro
It looked like that lady was about to bitch at them too. I wish we could see that attempt
@Guy Fawkes, If you don’t move, I think there comes a point when they’re legally allowed to shoot you - so yeah, could be fun to watch.
Thats the proper way to deal with traitors. Long live the queen
In the video, he even warns the kid
@madeyoulook2, then there's no excuse.
Still in snyc
I got four kids, so this is basically every morning until the coffee hits.
“Make way! Make way for unnecessary tradition!”
Edit: See my reply below for context
@Laugh Dammit, "unnecessary" give it 10 years and f@cking little Timmy will be calling everything you love an "unnecessary tradition".
@That one lurker, most traditions are unnecessary. Whats your point?
@Darth Panserbjorne, recipes are traditions handed down through Generations by nostalgia.
Should we do away with all flavors of recipes, just because we can subsist on some gray flavorless paste filled with vitamins?
But hey that may just be me. I have a healthy relationship with my parents and my family. So I want to preserve their traditions of having a healthy relationship with parent and family. To one day pass down to my child, in hopes I inspire them to not be nihilists.
@That one lurker, thats quite the black and white fallacy. Either i stick with generation old recipes, or i have to go full matrix and eat grey goop. Its impossible for people to develop new recipes, or experiment.
Having a healthy familial relationship is a very good thing tradition or not. You dont have to be a nihilist to realize that sometimes carrying a behavior across generations is of little benefit to society. Im not saying stop, just that its not very important
@Darth Panserbjorne, I think you have a fundamental misunderstanding of tradition.
Where people look at what worked and taught it to children.
Those children grew up and saw what didn't work and taught that to children.
Those children grew up knowing the problem and taught their children what didn't solve it.
It's a tradition to be against cannibalism, pedophilia, bestiality and incest.
These taboos was formed over the corpses of failed generations of tribes.
Some of these taboos are not shared by everyone, just like not everyone eat black eyed beans on new years.
So I don't understand how you get the idea that's changing tradition isn't also tradition.
And why a person needs to destory all traditions to make new ones.
@That one lurker, you're taking my argument out of context, i never mentioned destroying traditions, or that they weren't inevitable. I just mentioned that most are unnecessary. Some of the traditions you proposed, like trade skills, education, and morals are part of the minority that are important. Some traditions like burning witches and digging ditches are harmful ones. The majority of them, like black cats giving bad luck, or removing your hat when entering a building are purely symbolic and would make no difference if they were replaced or fell out of practice
@Darth Panserbjorne, then, I'm sorry that I miss understood what you was arguing. Saying that "most traditions are necessary." Makes me believe you'd have and immature understanding of the definition or purpose for tradition.
That is a mark on me.
To that same, it was not a tradition to burn witches.
You can find accounts across history of medicine woman and what are called "white witchs" that where not only not burned, but lived in society.
It was so called "black witch's" those that consorted with the Devil that was burned for heresy.
As your other example, how is your opinion formed on digging ditches being harmful?
And to last, I'd find losing superstitions and duty-bound honorifics. Makes the world bland.
Superstitions on pure historical references alone. But honorifics, about the character of a country.
Removing your hat when you meet a lady.
Opening the door for others.
I don't see the point of removing the foundations of culture just because they're purely symbolic.
@That one lurker, regardless of which witches were burned, clearly generations of people were killed over something impossible.
The digging ditches thing was attempted humor as a reference to a song.
Im not sure the world would be bland without them, but it's likely we'd just replace them with new, equally unnecessary practices. It's human nature to have extravagant displays for social reasons to all different degrees.
There's no point in removing harmless traditions, but neither is there any point to preserve them outside of historical recording
@Darth Panserbjorne, it seems we agree then, excluding some exact things and parallels.
I'd be interested on your thoughts are the "rules of the internet" as a parallel of traditions.
@That one lurker, the majority of them have already fallen into obscurity, but a few notable ones like the infamous rule 34 have started crossing generations. Realistically, social dynamics on the internet only greatly differs in real life by the addition of anonymity
Thats how most traditions come about though. in a sea of practices, some stand out for one reason or another and are preserved
@Darth Panserbjorne, so if a new tradition doesn't work, then we reinstitute the old tradition or try to make a newer one?
@That one lurker, I’m actually a big proponent of tradition and wish more of them would continue. Too many people want to get rid of traditions or change things for the sake of change. My joke was directed specifically at the situation in this gif. Yes, the parents should have kept a closer eye on their kid, but that guard could have easily stepped to the side. He only plowed that kid over for the sake of tradition and ritual and I think that was wrong. It was unnecessary and probably only made people disrespect the ritual more. I normally think those guys are super cool for the tradition they carry on and the crap they put up with.
@Laugh Dammit, in the long somewhere there is a person named @madeyoulook2.
If he is right, that this guard did give verbal order for the child to move, but kid refused.
I see no problem in it. Since this wouldn't be an accident.
If this was a baby, different story.
But a teen that got right back up again, I think that's about right.
But here I say all this with no mind to either what was fore or after.
I think that's only fair then.
If he called out a warning. Then he's good unless the kid was badly injured i.e something more than a bruise.
If those parameters were sent and they came to be true, then he'd be in the right by my eyes.
@Laugh Dammit, and please, if I'm wrong, tell me.
Your position is that if, regardless of circumstance, a person stands against your tradition, then the tradition must acquiesce?
@That one lurker, I found the clip:
The guard DOES yell “make way!” before he ran into the kid. In my honest opinion, he didn’t really give the kid much warning or much of a chance to respond to his warning before he was on top of him. Maybe less than a second. However, the news anchor in this clip said the guard later checked on the kid to make sure he was okay.
I don’t think this looks like a teen. Maybe 11 or 12. I doubt he has the same context of a Buckingham palace guard that you and I might have and also kids are notoriously slow at responding to something like that. An adult yells and sometimes they freeze out of intimidation.
My position is not that you should “acquiesce” your tradition just because someone stands against it, absolutely not. But I also don’t think you should potentially harm someone in order to uphold that tradition. Especially in this instance where this guard stepping to the side or even stopping in front of the kid and...
@That one lurker, yelling, “MOVE!” would hardly have imperiled his tradition.
Please don’t misunderstand me for being some snowflake or something. I agree with pretty much every comment you make. I just feel like this guy could have handled this differently. Especially because it’s a silly royal guard and not a Tomb of The Unknown Sentinel. Now those guys are wayyyyy cooler than guys guarding the silly monarchy. 🇺🇸
@Laugh Dammit, bro first, in need little flattery. I say enough of the wall sh!t on this app that my mom is paranoid someone might make their point with a bullet.
Can't trust commies in this country, being behind all but one president's assassination, and a hand full of terrorist cells. It's ridiculous. So I don't blame her.
11 or 12 sounds about right. I was kind of seeing in two ways, now yours the third. Either that kids being an asshole, said hold my juice box, but oblivious stooper sounds like the most compelling.
Which leaves where you and I differ on the subject.
The kid was a innocent. But If the man stopped, moved around, or shoved the kid out of the way. That would have broke tradition.
Every war is a battle for Innocents loss.
Every enlistee is an innocent man looking to save others from hardship. That's why they're hero's.
I consider the action good, because evil wants to destroy innocence. If he had not done what he did, someone would be there the next day to block him.
@That one lurker, you can actually even see how the guard goes out of his way to avoid hurting the kid as he takes an exaggerated step to avoid him and even momentarily breaks step with the other guard, so clearly he was concerned with the consequences of his actions
@That one lurker, sorry for the late reply, I don’t get notifications. That was very eloquent. Your perspective makes sense as per usual
@Laugh Dammit, I'm glad that it was legible. I was happy I hit the word count on the letter and still got a point across.
V for Vendetta (2005...wait 2005? The fvck do you mean this movie came out 17 years ago?)
The woke on tiktok calling the soldier racist cause the kid is black.
