The Dead of Mt. Everest
06/30/14, 03:03

Governments are, and always will be, controlled by the rich, serving their interests and leading, at best, to the creation of a higher caste of politically-connected rich person. Mt Everest might be covered in trash (like the rest of the planet, rich or poor, government or no), but at least it's not wiretapped and covered in racist cops, indefinite detention centers, and the corpses of drone-striked children.

The only thing government regulation could possibly do for Mt Everest is to make it safer to climb, by nanny-stating the climbers and forbidding them to do anything risky. But what good would that do? FEWER rich people dying on Mt Everest?! How could you possibly want that?

goto80 was the first chiptune musician I ever heard, back in, what? My senior year of highschool / freshman year of not-going-to-college? I didn't know too much about him (them? Weren't there two guys in the band?), just what I could glean from the sparse Web 1.0 resources on hand; some mp3s, and a couple videos of him jamming on Gameboys.

I'm glad to see he's still doing his thing, and I'm doubleplus glad that he's got a YT channel now!

He's absolutely spot-on about the lack of critical thinking in American public schools. While it's absurd to imply that this is some shadowy conspiracy perpetrated by the religious right (although they do share some of the blame); that we don't place nearly enough focus on teaching children to think independently, is most certainly true. I'm a bit less concerned about the lack of geography skills amongst the common man - despite the size of our military, it may surprise Skalla to learn that most Americans are NOT in the business of bombing other countries, and while geographic knowledge should be considered essential for people who to aspire to positions of authority, I'm willing to forgive Little Jimmy Q Detroit if he doesn't know where Syria used to be.

So! With that in mind, I propose that we scale back our social studies curriculum and use that time instead for classes on logic and critical thinking. Don't get rid of social studies entirely, obviously, but we can do without all the memorizing of every state capital and the making children learn what the primary mineral export of Delaware is (it's magnesium). Granted, this will partially undermine the main purpose of modern public education - churning out tractable Citizens, who are deeply committed to their national identity and eager to contribute to the industrial workforce - but I think the benefits of having a more thoughtful population would outweigh the costs.

Yeah, his nanny state point was well-made. The United States has higher tax rates than Sweden, a larger prison system than China, and more blue laws than the majority of Third World nations. All of this occurs with full bipartisan cooperation, so the idea that "the far left" is entirely responsible for "nanny state" politics and that "the patriotic right" is all about liberty and personal freedoms, is pretty much bunk. I do not believe this state of affairs is very surprising, however. What Mr Skalla fails to understand is that the American political industry operates much like Madison Avenue. It is all about appearances, and short, punchy messages, which serve primarily, not to inform or enlighten, but to sell a product; messages which can be introduced to a market, toyed with, then completely rewritten with only a few months notice. For example, anyone who remembers the Bush years would have thought it utterly insane for the so-called "left" to demonize liberal ideologies and paint pro-freedom, anti-authoritarian ideologies as "far right crazy" ideas. Yet it really shouldn't come as a surprise that this has been happening; once you realize that American political discourse is theater that serves no deeper purpose than to support the tactical interests of whatever gang is footing the bill, then no amount of trickle-down doublethink should surprise you.

I'm less impressed by his comment about socialism and communism. I'm not *entirely* clear on what he's getting at, as socialism and communism, like democracy, fascism, liberalism, what have you, are broad terms that can have wildly different meanings depending on the speaker, and the definition being used may sometimes change dynamically over the course of a speaker's own statement. However, it is a matter of record that the "Communist" states of the 20th century were socialist (both de facto and de jure; in observable practice, and in accordance with their own personal statements), and, as none of these states were particularly "Communist" (in any sense but an aspirational one), I think it's fair to say that "socialist" is a perfectly fair, and probably better, term for them. I'm guessing that Skalla's comment was made in an attempt to distance both non-Marxist and post-Marxist "democratic socialism" from Marxist-Leninist "vanguard socialism"; that is, after all, a very common talking point for people who don't want to see socialists like Pol Pot and Hitler poison the well for people like Urbane Swedish Green Party Activist #10937. "No True Socialist would be a commie" or whatever. Perhaps we should all learn to take a page from positivism and qualify our statements so as to avoid ambiguity when discussing political ideologies?

Anyway, I'm glad you posted this one, OZ! It's one of my favorite of his (non-sword-related) rants, but when it comes to Skallagrim, I'm always a bit worried that the Hive Mind won't be able to look past his dragon shirts and stupid beard.

Also, I'd imagine that asking a furry about his tail is similar to asking a Christian about his cross necklace. You have to expect what comes next.

Is there really a Furry mafia? I wouldn't be surprised; having known a few furs IRL myself, and moreover, being all too familiar with the kind of people who aspire to become online moderators for "geek culture" forums, it seems only logical that there'd be a ton of furry admins who have nothing better to do than throw their weight around and act like culture-policing assholes.

I hope you're not woofing from experience, though! Furry nerd-hipsters don't hate on your style, do they?

I saw the first one; it was pretty good. It wasn't quite what I expected, though. When it was first hyped, it looked like it was going to be a really fun, irreverent subversion of the superhero genre... like a less pretentious "Watchmen". From the previews and from what everyone was saying, it sounded like KickAss was going to be about superhero wannabes, regular people who WEREN'T super, nevertheless trying to act as such, and exploring what the consequences might be. And that's sort of what it was... for the first fifteen minutes. But then KickAss had a training montage and it turned into just another generic superhero movie, albeit with a hipper sensibility. I loved Hit Girl - she's on my desert island list of superheroes, right alongside Lobo, Deadpool, and Banzai Girl - and I certainly didn't think the first one was a horrible movie... but, as Mr Kermode says, part of what makes a film "bad" is the dashing of expectations, and KickAss certainly dashed mine.

"Well, officer, that depends on what your definition of 'animal porn' is. You see, my animal porn features anthropomorphic animal characters known colloquially as 'furries'. These sexy naked wolf-and-fox characters are drawn, not real, and they look vaguely like people, even though they're animals. Animals in porn. Gigs and gigs worth of them, actually.

Why, yes, yes you may check my laptop, why do you ask?"


On a related note, fuck the Canadian border patrol. I take it that nerd who got imprisoned for having anime pictures is not an isolated incident?

Meme - Welsh and a bit of Scottish on my mom's side, English on my father's. My dad's family traces our surname lineage back to the Danelaw, so that's another shit weather culture, too.

Tell me I'm wrong. That's my country, too, you son of a Frenchman, only I can bring myself to admit that humorless fuddy-duddys are as English as bad teeth, CCTV, and week-old chicken korma.

You know why we ruled the world? First, because we're genetically superior. Yeah, that much is a given. But second, because shit weather and even shitter food meant we HAD to leave and go conquering somewhere else.

I have never seen Pain and Gain and have no clue how apt his criticism is, but he is British, and popping your monocle over "catalogues of pornographic horrors" is an intrinsically British thing to do.

It is a cold, wet, joyless country, and the people it produces are the same.

Mr Holmes goes into a lot of detail here:

http://www.poetv.com/video.php?vid=119603

In short, he is a little obsessed with Boxxy, to the point where he tracked down and now regularly communicates with Boxxy's IRL mother. He knows everything there is to know about Boxxy, and has many strong opinions about Boxxy minutia that he will share, at great length, with or without provocation. Some poesters are creeped out by this, as he is sixty, and she is barely out of highschool; others are amused, for the same reason. He insists his interest is nonsexual.

waugh is what you see; swears, anger, spelling mistakes and occasional flashes of underlying brilliance. He is most likely a joke account made by the same person behind yrmom, a Poe-Red / Poe-News user who had similar posting habits.
