Re: Barefoot and Pregnant

The takes in this article are just ... baffling. "Hearing how all these pretty girls get raped just reminds me how much I'm not one of the pretty girls, since I didn't." "I choose dress modestly and don't flirt, and decided my sexual self is for my private life only, and am apparently...

Re: Oh shit, what are we gonna do now?

I mean ... they can't. Pence and the Cabinet can't remove Trump as President. They can invoke the 25th to declare him unable to serve, and install Pence as Acting President, but Trump can overrule that by submitting a written declaration of his ability to serve as President to Congress, which would ...

Re: Pros and Cons of Punching a Nazi Just Square in the Dick

It's more the fact that they had collaborators all throughout the rest of the media. Not coincidentally, a lot of the same people who would get upset about SJWs or mishandle feminist issues, or promote the dapper nazi takes. People like Mitchell Sunderland , senior writer at Vice's feminism imprint,...

Re: Rooty-tooty point and shootys

I keep hearing people say that bump stocks "simulate" full-auto fire, which just strikes me as transparently euphemistic. When your gun is vomiting 500 rounds per minute, there's nothing "simulated" about it. Like, okay, the gun is still technically a semi-auto; if the stock wer...

Re: The Star Trek Thread

The aspirational aspects of Star Trek have always been deeply fucked, though, and the franchise was at its best when it was DS9 and tore away at them to show the rotten underpinnings of Roddenberry's bad vision. A new show trying not to be TOS again is a very good thing. The last time Star Trek trie...

Re: Barefoot and Pregnant

It's really sad, because like ... they are legitimately miserable, for perfectly understandable reasons, but they've chosen to react to their loneliness and despair with projection and hostility, and just turned into this bitter circlejerk of hatred and (frequently) misogynist violence.

Re: Science!

I remember getting really hung up on a question in a gifted program test like that when I was five or six. The question was, like, "why do we put stamps on envelopes" and I was completely stumped for minutes, and eventually was just like, I have no idea why we use stamps on the envelope in...

Re: Pros and Cons of Punching a Nazi Just Square in the Dick

When your parody involves dressing marching around the floor in full SS regalia and needs to be explained that no, actually, it's deep ironic satire, then it's shit and you need to not do it.

Re: Books

It's also worth noting that Gladstone is probably the first author I can recall seeing that actually gets ebook pricing? Book 6 in the series, Ruin of Angels, came out on Tuesday. It's 576 pages, not a short book by any means. The list price for the paperback is $25, the price Amazon wants from me i...

Re: An Open Market on Economics

The hack checker page is probably only there to get people to agree to waive their right to sue by using it. Returning an accurate result is incidental at best - you want them to sign up for TrustedID.
