ToD was terrible, problematic parts aside. I mean, a movie cannot stand on, “Chilled monkey brains” alone.

Chilled monkey brains, though popular in Cantonese cuisine, are only one part of the perfection that is Clue.

Re: The Sheer WTFery of Epstein

That convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein had help in avoiding federal or state prison is unsurprising: money and power often buy what they shouldn’t.
Those defense attorneys really need to start using their talents for good, not evil...

Re: Twitter!

I read those replies you posted and have no idea what they are trying to say. It seems like they are trying to make vague unease(which I assume is normal) into some grand theory on reality.

Re: Inequality

I'm just amused at this whole bullshit think-piece dichotomy because my experience was like Nicole's. The "back row" people in my high school (at least in mainstream classes*) might have ended up Trump voters—the ones that aren't in prison or dead now, at least. They weren't the regular Americans , ...

Myself, I'm still wondering why nobody gave Jennifer and others here grief for calling them "concentration camps" in as many words until AOC chimed in and it became a Team Red trigger phrase.

I think it's more, "Life is pretty good and you people won't read anything unless it's shocking, stupid, or both. So I will make up pretend outrage that confuses people and want to figure out what I am whining about despite not believing a single word I wrote." No, it's more, "Things are kinda dang...

I'm just too tired of lefties calling everything they dislike or oppose "fascist" to actually get far into the article.

Re: The Sheer WTFery of Epstein

A few people I know are hoping/expecting that the Epstein case will bring down Steven Pinker. It appears that Epstein flew Pinker to an event or two. So far no evidence that Pinker was more than a speaker brought in because rich guys like pop intellectuals, but we'll have to wait to see if more com...

I'm not even sure "rape culture" is entirely the wrong term. I just hate seeing people use it to do things like decry black humor before falling upon a rhetorical fainting couch. There's no shortage of real shit to point at on the subject.
