Re: The Antisocial Network

I've seen Tweets inviting displaced artists and bloggers to come enjoy the imagehosting, commissioning, and promotional community ... at PornHub. If you want a site that's really unlikely to get huffy about female-presenting nipples, there's that. Pornhub’s entire business model revolves around ste...

Re: The Antisocial Network

So I'm no expert on Tumblr. I subscribe to a few comic book writers there -- Gaiman, Simone, Busiek -- but I don't really use it aside from that. So maybe my read on it is off-base. But my read is, the way it's managed to carve a niche for itself in the age of Facebook and Twitter is that it's mostl...

Rumor has it the song is about the Kent State Massacre, so that's fun.

Even if it's not, "guiltily I thought you had it coming" is a pretty dark lyric no matter what it's about.

Re: Election 2018

The fucked up thing is (I mean, aside from the obvious), now this validates the rationale for anti-ballot harvesting laws. The vast majority of ballot "harvesters" are church groups who help ensure that lower-income, mostly-minority voters are able to get their ballots in. Accusations that...

Re: Sometimes Science is More Art than Science, Morty

I'm not sure what the deal is with the Pickle Rick comic, but it seems like it's probably an adaptation of an earlier draft of the script for the TV episode. It starts out the same, but takes a different turn once Pickle Rick gets to the corporate office: in this version, the corporation is run by S...

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

More from Renato Mariotti, discussing Cohen's plea.

The gist seems to be that nobody in the Trump Administration ever actually told Cohen to lie to Congress, but he believes he was pressured to do so, and they certainly didn't correct his lies after he told them.

Specifically, if Manafort was lying to Mueller, and coordinating his story with Trump, and Mueller knew he was lying, and Trump repeated the same lies...I mean, it may be too much to hope, but that's a big fucking deal right there, quite possibly bigger than any of the other big fucking deals to da...

Re: Game musings and news

Spider-man feels like something you'd really like, Thad. Well, I don't know gameplay wise -- it gets a little long in the tooth when it comes to doing allllll the side content, but the combat system feels like "snappier, bouncier" Arkham in a lot of ways. I found it much more fun to 100% ...

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

Argument being made here is that Manafort continued to lie to Mueller because Trump has promised him a pardon in exchange for being a mole for the Trump team. But Mueller has anticipated that, and not only has pardon-proof indictments and forfeitures (Manafort will have every penny he owns seized a...

If you have heard the Good Word you're beholden to spread it as much as possible, so in effect it's a kind of spiritually corrupting viral meme. You know, like Goatse.cx.
