Would you like to elaborate?
Why not; CheatNeutral is a way off offsetting your unfaithfulness, leaving your conscience completely clear. Much like carbon offsetting works brilliantly and positively for the environment and your green credentials whilst lining someone's pockets, Cheat offsetting makes someone a bit richer and obviously repairs any damage you may have done. Everyone's a winner!!
Woohoo, free cash.
Hey, I happen to be comfortable with my lack of any form of a sex life. So getting paid for it? Yay.
oh so basically its the same principle america fucks everyone up the arse then pays em to keep quite about the size of its cock
yeah just about sums up carbon emmissions offsetting and cheatoffsetting
ahhh. capitalism at it's uh...best.
seems to me it's just buying a clear conscience. but it's total bullshit.
Do people really spend the money?
probably. it's kind of embarassing what people will go in for.
Yeah it really is.
When I used to stay up all night, I remember watching this infomercial at like 4 in the morning for "Holy water". They claimed it would cure anything. I could hardly believe it. I really wanted to know how many people dished they're money out for tap water. It's sad how desperate people are.
Erm, what is it they say about americans not getting irony???
It's about the futility and pointlessness of carbon offsetting and how it doesn't make a difference at all but makes some bastard a bit richer so your selfish little conscience is clear. A little reading of the site would have made that clear....
*Feels really fkn stupid that it had to be explained*
*bangs head against sink repeatedly*
No need to be an asshole.
Hey, come on, I wasn't being an asshole. The smily with the toungue out was meant to be playful but, hey, I guess you didn't get that either.
edit: besides, telling americans they don't get irony and watching them get wound up is quite funny as when brits say that they're usually being ironic anyway, conforming to stereotypes and all that...
Without meaning to be offensive I found it pretty obvious it was a joke and thought it was one of the funniest things I'd seen in a while, what with all this controversy surrounding the topic, but there you go..
Lost in transatlantic translation perhaps...
well, i usually get it. but people are getting fucking stupid & insane about all this shit, so i assumed it was real. so, you got me. i didn't even read it.
read what ?
the linked page. i just skimmed over it and assumed people were going to buy it, because people are fucking mindless sheep sometimes.
ah right ....never read it meself like but like found meself trying to read between the lines coz am totally stoned cheatneutral what sort of bollocks is that man .hope your having a splendid day kc
ronald_mcdonald is a brit. just so you know. now ain't THAT a bit ironic.
