This person is Canadian, which reminds me of a philosophical question : If bunny rabbits didn't exist, what would bunny rabbit shaped clouds be made of?

"We'll talk about that in a second", drink
"Matt Groaning", drink
"Higgs bossan", drink
(and Homer's equation was close but wrong about the Higgs boson)
Another comp lit major brain gone to mush! Groening was never a Mason and I can prove that. My dad kinda knew Homer and his grandpa was a Mason. So no. The masons are just more noticeable in Portland because of the Shriners literally parading themselves throughout town. Plus he attended Evergreen College which is about as far from Yale as you can get.
Matt isn't even responsible for the writing, or really much of anything so far as I can tell. Mr Groening's not a Mike Judge/ Seth MacFarlane/ Matt & Trey type of creative; he's just sort of there, soaking up the royalties. If he was a Freemason/ Illuminatist, it wouldn't matter much - it's his employees that are responsible for the content of the show, not him.
From what I understand, this episode was actually written by David Cohen ("Mr Futurama"), a Harvard-educated science nerd, and the equation itself was written by Mr Cohen's friend, an astronomer named David Schiminovic. It's close-but-wrong because it was based on what scientists already knew about the Higgs boson (or rather, what they predicted the properties of the Higgs boson to be); it's all math and predictive theories, so yes, in a sense, The Vigilant Christian is correct: they DID have "foreknowledge" about the nature of the Higgs boson, and being that this was common information in scientific circles at the time, it WAS "hidden in plain sight". Just, not necessarily in the sinister manner which Mr Vigilant is implying.
I did enjoy this guy's take on The Lego Movie, however. Usually, when Youtubers deconstruct The Lego Movie, they arrive at the conclusion that the movie is essentially an Objectivist parable: Lord Business and his society representing the collectivist police state, with The Master Builders representing the fiercely individualistic Galt-style rebels, a la Neo from The Matrix. According to Vigilante Christian, however, the Lego Movie is actually best understood as a gnostic renunciation of God. In his eyes, Lord Business *is* the good guy; Batman, Emogirl, et al. being aspects of Satan. According to this argument, the protagonist of the movie should have remained obedient to the Lord (God) and the society He created. By rebelling, Emmet Legoman has damned his soul and ushered in the tribulation.
I suppose both views may be correct.
I should see the Lego movie. A band I used to perform with's song was in that movie but it's not listed on the album so we get very tiny checks from Pandora and other online music services now once in a while. By "perform" I mean drink some beers and yell on that particular track, and play out for beer money, but it's kinda cool to think that millions of people know what me yelling into a microphone sounds like! As for Groening, it's a little like Gravity Falls' Alex Hirsch. Maybe I'm just saying that because they're both in Oregon, but there's a lot of similarities (except for Hirsch doing most of the voices) like the illuminati symbolism.

How can there not be a "your ideas are intriguing to me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter" reference in the comments?

Oh yeah EH, a friend of mine was wondering about a place to write/blog, sort of like Deviantart but just for words. This and Gmail are pretty much my only internet activity; I'd suggest here but I've been trying to limit my ljs. Any suggestions?
Dunno. DA lets you post writing as well as arts, and I think Livejournal maybe still exists. Tumblr, or Facebook, if you use that, and don't mind every scrap of privacy being torn from your life?
Yeah I was gonna suggest DA to him at first, but wondered if his stuff would fit in. I know that everybody is welcome at DA (I should upload more of my stuff and I will) but writing about yourself isn't the same as writing about yourself personified, animalized, etc. which I don't think he wants to do. He's just a really cool guy who struggles with his identity a lot.
Well, have him post here. Worst thing that'll happen is he pisses off the marks and we'll all of us have some good old fashioned internet drama together.
