Fox News Cuts Away From Obama Press Conference Because Nobody's Asking About Benghazi
05/04/14, 23:24

There were some security screw ups and steps that should have been taken but weren't, but nothing different from lots of other embassy attacks. Fox and the GOP strategists knew that if they just kept asking over and over "if" there was a scandal and cover-up by Hillary, or calling it a scandal then adding "if evidenced, this is damning", she'd be tarnished whether or not they ever found anything.

It's been nearly two years and they've found nothing, even with many attempts to spin nothing into something. But they've been saying it so long and so emphatically that their base genuinely believes there was a cover-up, and the GOP sees no downside to keep hammering it as long as there's a hope of hurting Hillary or the President. It's a combination of self-delusion, and seeing no downside to continuing the deliberate lie.

In this situation the media should be stepping in as fact checkers to point out that every investigation, including those by Republicans hostile to the White House, has found nothing. But CNN doesn't consider fact checking their job, MSNBC isn't listened to by those who give the scandal any credence, Al Jazeera US might as well be a terror sleeper cell as far as these people are concerned, and newspapers are dead.

It's understandable that some South Koreans would be furious at Joss Whedon over this. It's not like they have a democratic government that approved of this in exchange for large amounts of money and that indeed could put an ending to filming any time the public demanded it, that they should be blaming instead.

Putting the Bible in the fiction section! That'll show 500 years of Jewish history!
03/09/14, 11:02

I'm just wondering how exactly it covers 2,500 years of Jewish history. I'd heard 1,000 years BC as a long range estimate, 500 as a more modest one. Unless SexyDuckCop thinks it describes all the stuff since Jesus too, like a constantly updating newsfeed.

Only 8 seconds in, and I'm already wondering if Sacha Baron Cohen has really improved his disguises. I couldn't parody this guy any harder.

If you mean that he's like an avatar for douchebag atheists, then sure. If you mean that he's emblematic of atheists in general, then it's about as accurate as claiming Fred Phelps encapsulates what's wrong with Christians. Which would be something a douchebag atheist like this guy would say.
Even Pat Robertson Thinks Ken Ham is an Idiot
02/05/14, 21:26

Good point Pat, Ken Ham is embarrassing Christianity with his silly mistakes.

By the way, got another date set for the end of the world? Don't let your last few failures stop you, I'm sure you'll get it right this time. Also I was wondering if you could give me instructions on how I'm supposed to exorcise my second-hand clothes of demons, like you suggested. And I'm planning a trip to Florida in mid-July. Can you tell me if God is planning to send another Hurricane to punish the gays at that time?
Conan O'Brien is an abusive asshole.
01/31/14, 20:44

He's not actually an abusive asshole. He's like this because, as the documentary reveals, he's always on, always looking for attention. Even with staffers not thinking about cameras, he wants the attention and laughs. Of course the reason he's playing up the 'egocentric' boss bit is because the funniest comedy is often self-deprecating and grained in honesty.

This probably would make him insufferable to work with, but there's a difference between that and being an actual abusive asshole. His staff seem more wearily resigned to putting up with his childishness that actually scared. Plus, he's like this with Sona more than others because they're close and she actually tells him off when she needs to.
Frozen - In Summer

It's say it's their best since the Lion King (not counting Pixar's stuff).

Olaf and the trolls were pretty blatantly unnecessary to the story. Which is fine, it's a Disney kids movie and they're cute comic relief meant to sell toys. I just remember being taken out of the movie a bit when it suddenly cut to these bright scenes, like from a Pixar short, in the middle of a pretty visually consistent winter movie.

There's a large red NO SMOKING sign, on the dashboard of the cockpit.

The dashboard.

Of the cockpit.

As to the video, nothing more interesting that Nic Cage's incessant head bobbing, but the pre-load image looks like the movie's budget left for sets after his salary, was maybe $20. A kids TV show in the 70s would be embarrassed to have a cockpit that bad looking.
Clip from Left Behind (2014)
01/30/14, 14:46

The Left Behind series is fascinating, because it defies all story-telling conventions of having a 'goal' or 'arc'. The "heroes" spend all their time congratulating each other for knowing about the Rapture (all strawman non-evangelicals are so blind that all the world's kids disappearing is just dismissed), while occasionally referring to the need to convert people and stop the anti-Christ, but then never doing anything about it because it's all prophesied and part of God's plan they can't stop anyway.

They could kill the anti-Christ or publicly proclaim faith, but that would take effort and risk, so just like real evangelicals they'd rather sit together with like minded people and take perverse pleasure at anticipated suffering of others.

It's basically 50 Shades of Gray for people who get off on the suffering of others.

...wait, let me rephrase that...

It's 50 Shades of Gray for people who get off on the suffering of others who don't agree with their cultural beliefs and personal prejudices, but are too lazy and sexually dead to pull out the nipple clamps.

It's the kind of viral marketing that says directly what it is, and doesn't use actors to fake reactions (presumably). So it's fine.

I mean c'mon, spending the money on another subway ad, or on a roaming devil baby flipping off police cars and failing to phase sanitation workers who've seen worse things in the last three dumpsters they went to. You know what's better.
Karl Pilkington - Alan Carr (Chatty Man)
01/09/14, 13:19

Yeah, that really settles any debate. Old stories are retold in an exaggerated version, and old questions Karl had about gays, dinosaurs and whatever which were previously answered, are brought up again as if for the first time, only with exaggerated comedy.

And that's fine. Regular Karl and acting Karl are both funny, and even acting Karl mines a lot of humor from his sincere reactions. He's not much different from any other comedian in that regard.

As far as I can tell the 'rope' explanation is just wishful thinking.

Yes, the words for camel and rope were similar, so a mistranslation is possible. But there's nothing textually to suggest he meant anything other than what he said. Putting a camel/elephant through the eye of a needle was a common rabbinical expression for something impossible, the rope metaphor isn't documented elsewhere.

The context is that Jesus is telling a rich guy he needs to give away his possessions if he wants to get into heaven. Not that he needs to live a simpler life in a metaphorical way, but literally give away his stuff to charity.

To an extent that's consistent with the 'don't be attached to stuff' interpretation, but the end of the story is the guy walking away frustrated because he doesn't like the idea of having to give it all up. He wants for his good deeds and following of the commandments to be enough, but Jesus says "too bad, heaven's not actually easy to get into." So of course we've had centuries of people saying "Well we don't actually 'have' to give it away to charity. We can do so metaphorically, I'm sure. Whatever lets me keep my plasma TV."
The Best Way To BURN A Catholic Bible PerVersion!

That is basically exactly what is happening. Only except for considering them all "Muslims", they have all sorts of divisions and subdivisions and factions used by politicians to turn people on each other.

Which like all religious schisms and wars, look to outsiders like comic books nerds arguing over which version of Green Lantern would win in a fight, only with more bombings and acid attacks. Occasionally stopping to unite and attack those who think the Flash is better.

The "Ahem" doesn't indicate a contradiction. There is a difference between selectively suggesting that only marriages which can procreate be approved and wanting to discourage relationships in which birth defects are more likely to occur if they procreate. Like Bort said, the relationship between power relationships and consent in polygamous and incestuous relationships is directly at issue. Again, you can point out it doesn't always apply, but it's still a rational secular basis.

A slippery slope fallacy is typically when a person says "Yes but if we do this one thing, why not this other" when there is an actual reason not to. They might disagree as to whether that reason is sufficient, but as long as the distinction exists, the slope doesn't apply. You asked for secular reasons, and I gave them. If you disagree and either think incest isn't sufficiently harmful, or that homosexual relationships somehow are, then you'd have a basis for continuing to suggest a slippery slope.

Incest is more likely to result in harmful genetic mutations for infants. Also like bigamy, incest is strongly associated with disproportionate power relationships in a way studies show is not the same for homosexual relationships, despite evangelicals citing discredited studies saying otherwise.

The arguments against incest are real, the arguments against homosexuality are based only on 'difference', or some false assumption we need to encourage childbirth, as determined by multiple courts. One can argue that the government shouldn't prohibit incest simply because it can be harmful, but isn't always. But the fact that these differences exist means a slippery slope argument is a fallacy.

And most of these attempts to compare gay marriage to other relationships, leave straight marriage out of the analysis. Because it's trying to establish gay marriage as something 'different' that needs to be let in. It doesn't matter if the same arguments for gay marriage work for incest, because they work for straight marriage as well. What matters is whether there's secular rational reasons why it shouldn't be allowed.
Call of Duty: Ghosts Copy & Paste Modern Warfare 2 Ending
11/07/13, 04:40

It seems like there are people who actually think this was copy pasted out of laziness, rather than being an intentional reference, and thematic repetition.

I mean call it creative laziness all you like, but they didn't literally copy the code to put in less effort, and some people seem so swept up in video game nerd rage that they miss that. There are plenty of actual grounds to criticize the game on.

The villainous laughter at the end went from "this is dumb and doesn't make sense" to "this is so dumb it's funny".
