Looking at the corners again, easily there is enough "flatness" to stand on their ends. That die probably hit the other and instead of falling over, the die sitting flat blocked it and it rocked back without enough momentum to fall all the way back over.
Jay Leno is not funny whatsoever. As you should know by now, it's an inside joke on this forum, as well as being a bigot is an inside joke. Don't take it literally. As you can understand, there is nothing in the picture to indicate the dice are Chinese, so the comment must refer to something else. The humor is because the comment is absurd, it makes zero sense, beyond being sarcastic to gripes about losing in black jack, because the cards are Chinese.Quote: CAD2
1. My reply to you was that your comment was borderline “racist” (btw, being a racist does not equate to being a bigot because one can be a bigot and not a racist) - you didn’t grow up being on the receiving end of “Chinese” comments (where Chinese when used as an adjective was meant in a derogatory manner or as an ethnic slur).
2. The “bigoted” comment was directed to the person who thought making ethnic jokes was “funny”. Just ask Jay Leno if he thinks ethnic jokes are “funny”.
3. I am not responsible if you lack the intelligence or sensitivity that “Chinese” when used as an adjective is considered racist in the context you employed. Whether you intended offense is irrelevant - this is 2018, not the 1950’s.
The bottomline is your (borderline racist) comment in the context it was written is offensive.
Jay Leno is not funny whatsoever.
You are trying to make a distinction between:
(a) someone who makes an offensive remark in a joking manner knowing it is offensive
(b) someone who makes an offensive remark in a joking manner but is ignorant said remark is offensive
This is what happens when an inside joke goes outside. Women start marching with vaginas on their heads.
Why doesn't the machine roll the dice again if it gets stuck in a weird position like that? Gaming regulations?
I disagree. You are looking for the opportunity to be offended. I can see your initial concern, as the remark is out of context in this thread, but now you're just defensive.
It is not a “joke” unless you are a bigot. Jokes about nationalities or race or ethnicity are not funny - you can ask Jay Leno.
For too long, Americans were using “Chinese” (as a nationality or race or ethnicity) to make fun of the situation.
It’s in the American lexicon:
“Chinese” home run
“Chinese” fire drill
And if you weren’t so bigoted in your views, you should have known there are such things as Chinese Dice (try Google).
