So apparently our good friends the New York (Football) Jets are playing on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur in consecutive weeks this next season. Being a New York team, some, or possibly all, of their fans are Jews. They are extremely pissed. They might riot, if that didn't count as manual labor.

Edit: Also, the site I learned about this from had to shut the comments to the story off because of all the crazy anti-Semitic stuff that was posted there. And it's not a scrub site, it's probably the best NFL news site on the internet and gets hundreds of thousands to millions of views a day. Fuck the internet.

Gosh. You mean your average American sportsfan might have some anti-Semitic tendencies? Shocking.

It's not even that, it's the weird internet thing where people on forums or open comment sections are just randomly brutal for no reason whatsoever.

I'm sure the people on Vernon's Terminator forums were the same way.

Or, say, certain other forums.

When you have a situation in which scrubs (most people) can speak anonymously (such that there's no way to know who is a scrub and who isn't), it almost invariably leads to rather intense bigotry.

Scrubs love to feel superior, and anonymous bigotry is a good way to do it. Anonymous bigotry is even better in that you can be a scrub and a coward, but still talk a lot of shit.

This...

I imagine you all aren't Penny Arcade fans, but I have to pull this thing out here.
