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

Man, remember that time a celebrity with a history of sexual assault allegations got elected to executive office and thought he could govern by acting tough and spouting catchphrases, but then he realized it wasn't working and he changed?

Re: DC Animation


Weisman suggests Arrowette is a new character. I assumed she was Artemis with a new name and costume (since she alluded to trying a new identity at the end of season 2).

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

James Murdoch calls out Nazis and Trump, and pledges to donate $1M to the ADL. I'm of two minds on this. On the one hand, condemning Nazis and a president who triangulates about them is not really praiseworthy; it's a low fucking bar. (Putting his money where his mouth is is good, though; that part...

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

I'm seeing plenty of false equivalence in various interweb comments sections, but given that all of Trump's business councils have dissolved over the past two days, it sure seems like "no, people who oppose nazis are not equivalent to nazis" is the general consensus. (The late-night comics...

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

The good news is -- and the racists don't seem to have figured this out yet -- that the more racists show up to protest the removal of traitor flags and statues, and the more violent they get, the more traitor flags and statues get taken down . If they'd kept their dumb fucking mouths shut, a few st...

Even his base is shrinking , though; people seem to be sliding from "strongly approve" to "somewhat approve". And it's unlikely that we'll ever see those numbers start moving the other way. (It's possible that a horrific event -- a terrorist attack, a war, etc. -- could get peopl...

He's been convicted of a misdemeanor. The worst he's going to get is six months, and there's a good chance he'll get house arrest.

Re: Hot Tweets Cool Treats

I'm thinking it was intentional but came out awkward because the headline was typed up either on a phone or by an intern who barely speaks English.

Dictation software is another possible explanation.

Adding: I feel like this is a big deal. Granted, I've felt like that so many times before, and yet Fox News, Ryan, and McConnell continue to dance their usual dance. Maybe nothing changes, again.

Re: What about a thread for good news?

Nathan Rabin covered the latest Gathering of the Juggalos and he didn't have a lot of confidence in the March on Washington; he thought ICP themselves did a piss-poor job of publicizing it, and the Juggalos in general aren't interested in politics and don't seem likely to engage. I hope he's wrong, ...

Which is another good entry in the "Trump is just like Arpaio" list, because Arpaio once demanded that the New Times release a log of every single IP that had ever hit its website.

Re: Arizona is a blasted hellscape

Honestly, it doesn't bother me. His political career is over, because we voted him out of office by double digits, because all his shit finally caught up with him. Whether his slap on the wrist gets unslapped or not is purely symbolic.

Re: Animotion and Car Tunes

I've certainly got no complaints. Tennant is fantastic as Scrooge, Launchpad is the funniest character, and they're doing a good job of making the nephews individual characters. I liked the structure of making the entire first episode a cold open and then jumping into the theme song before the secon...

Re: Hot game deals

Humble Store has a Final Fantasy sale. There appear to be substantial efforts to dee-uglify FF6PC , if that's the sort of thing anybody's interested in checking out. It's fascinating stuff; apparently the PC game is just a wrapper around the GBA ROM, which of course leaves it pretty open to modding....

Christopher notes that both Sauron and Saruman are Maia of Aule, and that this is certainly intentional. And whatever Mongrel's ...

Re: MIA: Our Fallen Brontos

Ironically, I suspect the main culprit is the mice I've been using for the past 10 years to help with my wrist pain (a thumb trackball at work -- constant thumb movement -- and a VerticalMouse at home, which I grip pretty tightly with my thumb). Though the past 27 years of constantly pressing button...
