Re: The son of "What the hell are YOU staring at?"

I should get around to Snyder's Watchmen . I keep catching clips from it and noping out, but I feel like I'm missing the full right to shake my head at it without seeing it. (And I might actually enjoy some of it.) The biggest problem with it is he just doesn't quite understand all the material. He...

Re: Zack Snyder's Slow Motion French Fries: the DCEU Thread

Michael Keaton by himself made Multiplicity watchable. It had a completely stupid premise and he actually made it entertaining. I'm not sure many other actors could have done that.

The Global Fertility Crash While the global average fertility rate was still above the rate of replacement—technically 2.1 children per woman—in 2017, about half of all countries had already fallen below it, up from 1 in 20 just half a century ago.

Re: Masculinity, so fragile

There’s a class element to be sure. There’s another element of inside/outside a tribe who sees things that way. Oh, and alcohol. I think the fist fight thing is very much more about tribe and it's also contextual. IIRC Jared Diamond in one of his books talked about how when two aboriginal males fro...

I'm pretty sure We Are Legion / We are Bob series is the most autistic sci fi. Easily more autistic than the Martian / Artemis Andy Weir books that formerly held the slot.

Re: DOOM! (Insert extra Os as you see fit)

I think there is real consensus across both parties that debt and deficits don't matter - bringing it up is loser politics and nobody can imagine a world where the US treasury isn't the sexiest debt instrument among truly fugly competition.

Re: DOOM! (Insert extra Os as you see fit)

Well the GOP isn't going to say anything because it happened on their watch and the Dems aren't going to bring it up since that might highlight the fact that there's no money for all those goodies they want to add.

At some point this will matter. Unfortunately by then it will likely be too late.

I think it might be contextual. If I have the onscreen keyboard up it zooms with the cursor. But if there is no keyboard it only highlights the word.

Do they still do the thing where the guns of spec ops types inexplicably make a few threatening clicks when someone aims them or turns quickly?

The silence you are experiencing over the first episode of Watchmen is entirely deserved. As there isn't anything worth saying about it? Pretty much.
