    @Ian Bolton what do you mean, pretty ignorant? i think Jeph was just expressing an opinion. last time I checked its a free world so you if you dont like it go find anoter blog.

    The comment was ignorant because it’s a declaration to the world that he doesn’t like beans, but I BET he hasn’t tried all types of beans. So therefore to make that declaration is ignorant. QED.

    so Ian Bolton does he then have to try all beans before having any option? that is stupid. i have not seen every action movie but i can still speak my mind and say i don’t like action movies, and that’s all Jeph has done with beans, so leave him alone.

    Firstly: you’re not ZEPH’s mum, so stop being so gay. Secondly, you have made the single most FUCKING RIDICULOUS comparison I have ever seen. They make new action movies *all* the time, but they don’t make new *beans* all the time, do they? So there is no good reason why Zeph cannot get off his ignorant arse, try a wide variety of beans, and then report back on what beans he disliked and why. Morons.

    why are you being so mean? you don’t have to be like Hitler about it, it’s only beans.

    Hitler did not like some people… but at least HITLER had the intelligence and decency to say WHO he did not like. He didn’t just write into The Nazi Times or whatever and say, “Hallo, you vight vant to puvlish vis: I HATE EVERYBODY.” In fact, I think that IF Hitler had said he was going to write an article called ‘I hate beans’ that GOEBBELS would’ve politely said: “that’s ignorant”.

    So, @Ian, Bolton are you admitting that you are in fact Goebbels?

    NO, I AM NOT SAYING I’M GOEBBELS! THAT WAS CLEAR. GO AND FIND THE OTHER FIVE-YEAR-OLDS AND GO PLAY ON YOUR OWN FIVE-YEAR-OLDS’-VERSION OF THE INTERNET. Which I presume is elsewhere.

    Well, Ian Goebbels, I myself do not like beans, except the two beans I saw dangling in your sack below your weedy little parsnip as you banged your mum.

    Braveheart, just ignore Big Rich, he’s a flamer. Look, I feel like we’ve gone completely off track. All that I’m saying is that Zeph should specify a) what species of beans he doesn’t like, b) why he doesn’t like these species of beans, and c) why he thinks his comments (on these species of beans specifically) might generalise (to beans as a whole). I mean I can understand his point for something like butter beans, because of their texture, but I can’t seriously believe that he doesn’t like the beans you get in baked beans (excluding the sauce) because they barely taste of anything. And where does he stand vis-à-vis flageolet beans?

    HOW DARE YOU SAY THAT! YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THAT AREA OF MY MOTHER TASTES LIKE! AND YOU HAVE NO WAY OF KNOWING THAT GOEBBELS WOULD HAVE DONE THAT IF GIVEN THE CHANCE! I KNOW WE ARE ON THE INTERNET, BUT WE ARE STILL HUMAN BEINGS!

    ian I think you should be the bigger man. another thing maybe it’s not a good time to bring it up but before you said that hitler wouldnt have printed a story titled ‘i hate beans’ but Zepp never said he hated beans, he said he didnt like them. hopefully we do not have to go all the wya back to wsquare one, which is in this case is knowing the differentce between just not liking something and hating something.

    (I went for an egg roll, calmed myself down a bit).

    Braveheart, I just saw what you wrote about your granddad. That sucks.

    But back to the beans topic we’re discussing: my point about Hitler was purely rhetorical, but the point still stands if you substitute ‘don’t like’ for hate. I think it’s a big shame, because everything else that Zeph’s written here I’ve been completely behind. It’s a shame he let himself down.

    i agree about Zaph’s articles in general but disagree about this one – i think it’s really godo how he just gives his opinion and doenst care what peple think. It’s like… wow.

    Yeah, guys, I really apologise for all my earlier comments. I think it’s just because Zeph keeps banging out these Grade A articles, and I keep thinking, ‘man, how does he come UP with this shit?’ And my jealousy turns to hurt, my hurt to rage.

    Let it out, Big Rich, let it out. Guys, the truth is that… I don’t even really like beans myself. Guess it takes someone like Zeph Auerbach to bring people like me out of the shadows.

    well done Ian Bolton, *pats on back*. now that weve resolved that issue, is it alright if we talk about soething like, I don’t know, the interntional resource privilege and whether or not it further exacerbates the disenfranchisement of the world’s poor (cf. Pogge 2008)?

  24. Ian, Bolton permalink

    Sure, man.

    *** Thank you for reading ‘Beans’ or ‘How the Internet Could Transform Into a Respectable Forum for Global Deliberative Democracy (if Humans Transformed Into Beings Who Didn’t Find it Irresistible to Bring up Hitler and/or Balls)’ or ‘Don’t Wait Around’. ***

    All I really feel like saying today is that I don’t like balls.
