Re: To Infinity War and Beyond: the MCU Thread with Spoilers

I would note that Blade never had the same cultural cachet as Black Panther. Also, to use a boxing analogy, Blade was more of an undercard fight, while BP is treated as the main event. The thing that strikes me as odd about this is that nerds in general got excited, at first, for their cultural icon...

Re: To Infinity War and Beyond: the MCU Thread with Spoilers

I liked the movie, loved that the bad guy and the conflict wasn't some crazy unrealistically powerful big bad. The other thing that I liked is that the futuristic city still had parts that looked like a city and the source of the conflict was believable. There weren't parts that made me wonder when ...

Re: Occam, Trump, and Russia

With the news that the Russians went after Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, I can expect both of them to endorse the Russians for president. But don't worry, Rubio will subtweet them with Bible verses.

Re: 17-Year-Old Says 'I Could Buy an AR-15,' Gets Arrested

All the people saying the FBI dropped the ball on the kid in Florida, was he doing anything illegal that the FBI could have credibly done to stop him? The guns were obtained legally.

Re: Masculinity, so fragile

So the handsome prince kisses her awake, symbolizing civilization's awakening of irrational humanity. But it's impor...

Because Peterson said that “art” is not political. Citizen Kane is pretty universally viewed as art, while Transformers is not.

Re: Orange is the new President

How does the White House Counsel not yet have full clearance? Down in the trenches, it can take a full year to go from SF-86 (and its successors) submittal to final adjudication for TS/SCI. It was taking even longer than that during the mid 00s personnel surges. (and mismanagement, and bureaucratic...

How does the White House Counsel not yet have full clearance?
