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

Yeah, there’s any number of hyperbolic breathless paeans to both movies as the first of their kind and “everything” because apparently being a cultural critic doesn’t imply any work to become familiar with culture. With Wonder Woman it wasn’t just the first female superhero, she was the first female...

Re: Occam, Trump, and Russia

I can never tell if Ben Garrison is serious or if he’s seeing how long he can post Onion cartoons and Trumpkins won’t get the joke.

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

Ok, I saw it. I really, really liked it. Yeah, there were a few things I could nitpick, but it was a great super hero movie. But I don't get why liberals are spooging over it. The villain is into Black Power! He's even inspired by a father who practically recites a Ta-Nehisi Coates critique of Amer...

Doesn't the current evidence suggest it *doesn't* work for ducks? I thought it was more that they were locked in an evolutionary battle, much like the crazy alt universe guys on ST:TOS. That's possible. I just remember reading that the corkscrew genitals make conception almost impossible without th...

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

In the comics it makes more sense, because Stark has always been more of an establishment figure, even though he's personally a playboy. He realizes that powered people can get out of control and so need to be regulated. Cap is more "spirit of America" and instinctively rebels against top-down abrog...

Re: I may want to see that?

Nobody engages in hitler reclamation projects - but that shit happens all the times with leftist monsters starting with Stalin. Yeah, the problem in modern society is not "there's too much widespread socially-accepted support of Hitler and too extreme damnation of Stalin." There's the right damnati...

I do not know why Team Blue and the MSM thinks anybody besides themselves cares about Trump's affairs. As long as Trump's sex life is hetero, non-partisans are indifferent and Trumpers are cheering him on.

People shouldn't hug in a professional context anyways.
That is very culturally dependent. Try to tell African-American women of a certain age not to hug people.

Please be sure to film it. ;)

Yeah, no. As bad as Stalin was, he wasn't planning on slowly starving off the entire population of Eastern Europe over several decades.
He had already starved out the population of much of Ukraine over just a couple of years, so...yay for being quick?

Unlike Trump, Stalin actually stood up to the Nazis.

Eventually.

It’s a less extreme version of Fugu. It’s generally not worth the cost for the benefit. But unlike Fugu, I think it’s a bit exaggerated. But why do that when god made lychee?

Huh? The alt-right types aren't going up against identity politics; they're embracing it to toxic extremes. Ditto the MRA-types who loathe those with the identity of "woman." Yes, but they don’t police other people’s speech (in public), and they attack the identity politicians who attack run of the...
