    I haven't listened to it, I must admit. I'll go and listen.
    It's not typically what I listen to, but I think I'm finally getting into it

    You shouldn't be laughing at others' misfortunes. I wouldn't try to stop you, but I just hope you realise that's a tad twisted.
    meh, I think the world is so ****ed up that some times you just have to laugh at it. Imo pretty much anything can be the subject of a joke, but obviously you have to know your audience which why I tend not to say anything too 'out there' online.

    Interesting questions hard to confine it to one genre, a list of bands off the top of my head are bands like My Chemical Romance, Maiden, Metallica, Creeper, David Bowie, Muse, Run the Jewels, Placebo, Hozier, The Used, Faith No More, Misfits and such, but also some which don't fit in to those acts like Robbie Williams, Bussted/McFly, videogame OSTs,

    Favourite song from each artist?

    I'll give you mine:

    > Black Parade (sorry for picking the most mainstream one but it is very good)
    > When the Wild Wind Blows
    > Black Mass
    > Moonage Daydream
    > Madness
    > pretty much the end of our corresponding music taste tbh

    I'll take that to mean you lack the imagination and/or humour to be able to do so

    Why is it not okay to mock a disabled person but okay to mock anyone else? Your position is a very patronising one, as if just because someone is disabled, they must be incapable of taking a joke. It wasn't a mean joke, it wasn't offensive, it merely noted that the person had no arms or legs and quite frankly were I in his position I'd rather have people who would have a laugh with me than people who seem to think that because I have a disability I am somehow less human than anyone else.
    No, it's not just the disabled you can't mock, you also can't mock: Jews, Muslims, Asians, Africans, other black people, Hispanics, gays, trans people, the mentally ill, women, the poor, people with funny names, people who look funny, victims of crim, etc etc. Of course, there are exceptions if the person being mocked is rich, white, and not a member of the regressive left.

    This is ridiculous! I'm all for freedom of speech, and of course people should be allowed to crack jokes, but it becomes a problem when it turns into blatant discrimination and bullying.

    So you mean you literally have no sense of humour and find any and all jokes distasteful?

    Bullying and discrimination isn't a joke. Making fun of something in a light-hearted way is joking around...

    Apparently under the licencing act 1872 (an unrepealed part) it is illegal to be drunk in a pub
