    You know...if you guys are going to play Cthulu on Bullshido, at least get your facts straight.

    He is not an Old One. Cthulu is one of the many Great Old Ones. Not quite an Outer God, but more powerful than the weaker Old Ones of whom there are few, or Elder Things.

    Although Cthulu's gender is not given in Lovecraft's tales, his cult refers to him as male and as the high priest, not a priestess.

    In the overall mythos, since the late 90's at least, Cthulu is male because he mates with and impregnates his sister Kassogtha, Bride of Cthulhu and the Leviathan of Diseases (Joseph S. Pulver (1999). Nightmare's Disciple).

    Claiming he is genderless or even female would work fine with older stories (it is left ambiguous), but doing so beyond Lovecraft would invalidate the last 20+ years of relatively canonical literature, if such a word can even be ascribed to a shared mythos. I'm not familiar with the mating habits of Great Old Ones, but it is well known that Cthulu has sired children.

    Seems you're the one worried about all of that.




    If this guy is the "needed contrast" then I hope Cthulhu rises, the sooner the better.
    I'm pretty interested in his truth and free speech ideas.
    That's not a real value 'round your parts?

    Well, we are in BS.net forums. Iconoclasty is a must and calling out bullshit peddlers is what this place is about.

    Truth and free speech? Yes, they are valuable even here.

    Now, are you are telling me this guy speaks the truth and he is being persecuted by the Goverment because of that? Sorry man, my belly button is going to get untied from too much laughing.

    Well, this thread has evolved a little from the original topic but I thought I would chime in anyway. Well, on the original topic. I don't know **** about this kthulu stuff.

    The officer gave the girl a lawful ordered which was based on the rules of the subway. That rule is reasonable and ethical for a bunch of reasons. She refused the order. He then gave her another lawful order to get off the train. She refused that order. It is within his rights to remove her from the train. People get hung up on this next part. When he told her to get off the train, she was at that point resisting the officer. It is considered passive resistance on the use of force guidelines. But he has guidelines on how to appropriately respond to that passive resistance. He is currently past officer presence and at verbal order. He now progresses to empty hand control like escort techniques including joint locks, holds, striking and kicks. She actively resists at that time. She could have stood up when he began his escort, but chose to resist at that time. He was justified at the point that she resisted his escort to progress to takedowns, les lethal weapons (pr24, chemical and conducted energy devices) and mechanical restraints.

    So based on what I saw the officer did everything pretty much textbook.

    As a kid i read the Anarchist Cookbook.

    There's a line in there I never forgot. The author was a radical, but he was correct when he said "Never argue with a cop. He's the guy with the gun."
