Re: Dreams (not those crushed by the weight of unfulfilled life)

He seemed to be pretty pro-Hef from a man's-man POV. I was just explaining that by mainstreaming erotica, Hef helped to kickstart the sexual revolution. I woke up before I got to the part about carving out alternatives to the restrictive male gender roles of the 50s.

Re: Our Friends, The House of Saud

If Donald Trump can rouse Congress into actually defunding a pointless war in the Middle East, he truly will be the greatest president this nation has ever had.

Looks like a decent way to kill a couple hours, but the question is whether Bffleck and Oscar Isaac are enough to overcome the sucking charisma void that is Charlie Hunnam.

Re: Heroes and zeroes of the animal kingdom

How does an eel end up in the nose of a seal? https://cdn2.webdamdb.com/1280_QkniWZ2dN011.jpg In the nearly 40 years that we have been working to monitor and protect endangered Hawaiian monk seals, we have only started seeing "eels in noses" in the last few years. Yet, our researchers have observed...

The trick with this one is there isn't decades worth of stories to mine from in the same way as many of the other heroes. She might as well be a brand new character. Carol Danvers has been a thing since 1968, a superhero since 1977, and Captain Marvel since they realized 'captain' is not a gendered...

Re: Observations of the Random sort

One one hand, Fox News' livestream of the GHWB body dump was a gross morbid power-fellating jingoistic jerkoff. On the other hand, since it was literally a camera pointed at a car containing a box containing a corpse, it was probably the least dumb thing ever broadcast on Fox News.

The Gal Who Got Rattled is the best one. Obscure patois and good characterization with a healthy dose of Coen absurd darkness. President Pierce is the hero we need right now.

Re: Worthwhile YouTubez Finds

There's a pretty popular hot take among film critics and others that the Incredibles movies are uncut Randian propaganda. This is a decent video essay on how they are actually more complicated than that.

Re: Orange is the new President

As part of the post-mortem lionization of GHWB, CNN published his successor letter to Clinton, making me wonder what Trump's letter will be like, if he even writes one.
