    I mean, body-mass alone...

    Trailer Thread IV

    The opening scene with the kid got me all excited that 20th Century Fox finally read one of my emails about doing a Predator vs Home Alone crossover...

    is the WoT series worth reading

    Never read a word of it, and have no plans to. I've never read a word written by Robert Jordan, and only a single short story by Brandon Sanderson. And yet, for some reason, I've owned four different Wheel of Time books at varying points in my life. None of them were gifts.

    May - Reading 2018 - Have another?

    Which one?

    Bakker LIV - Soul Sphincter

    Only if it were preceded by two-hundred nearly empty pages, with the word "rape" perfectly centered in the middle of each otherwise blank page. And every time you turn a page the font gets larger and larger, until each letter fills a page. And then it abruptly stops with the words "And then the No-God showed up again and everyone died." on the final page. I mean, give the guy a little credit...

    Bakker LIII - Sranc and File

    I am actually somewhat in awe of the mental gymnastics he must be doing to so thoroughly miss this point without deliberately trolling.

    Rothfuss XIII: Fan Angst Live Stream

    Asked if Luna Lovegood was the inspiration for Auri.

    Rothfuss XIII: Fan Angst Live Stream

    I know I've been the one lecturing everybody about this turning into a Rothfuss spite thread, but I am getting a bit of a kick out of how much this tweet must have pissed him off

    IIRC what Bakker found so intriguing about the Baby Kellhus theory is that it somewhat mirrored Alia Atreides.

    What is this, 4chan? I agree the intro to TSRoST is almost pathologically self-aggrandizing in the way that it explains to the reader why the book is supposed to be good, but are we really attacking the author now for having anxiety? Really?

    US Politics: What Price Loyalty?

    I generally prefer to think of Trump as a nonsexual entity, because contemplating what turns him on feels kind of like staring into the oozing pustules of the abyss. That being said, I wouldn't be surprised if there was a highly sexual component to his infatuation with power, control, and authoritarianism. And I'm sure any attraction he might have to women of color, especially one who worked for him, would probably play into that. Somebody should really point out to Trump's base, btw, that of the last two presidents, the one with six children from four different women is the white guy. Well...white-ish.

    His base? Depends... Was the housekeeper white?

    US Politics: What Price Loyalty?

    Fair enough. Obama also said he believed marriage was between a man and a woman when he was running in 2008. But it feels different now. The GOP has so thoroughly capitulated to Trumpism that I don't think there is room in the party anymore for people like pre-2015 Rand Paul. The party needs a complete, ground-up rebuild. Remember the last Speaker of the House literally sang Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah as he announced his retirement? I can only imagine Paul Ryan cartwheeling out of the room when it's his time to go.

    This is the man who started his presidential campaign in front of an aircraft carrier suggesting that we up the defense budget by almost two-hundred billion dollars, yes?

    IMO, Obama should hop on twitter and take credit for putting up some of those Confederate statues. Trump will have the National Guard tearing them down by the weekend.
