OK that was an in-joke  :smith:

I mean he looks like a Pizzaphile to me

My first introduction to Peterson was a video clip where he said that there's something wrong with any woman who's over 30 and not prioritizing family over career, so I am extremely fucking shocked to learn that this virulent anti-Marxist believes in forced redistribution of sex.

So he's a rape culture advocate?

Sounds like some sort of less fundie version of The Handmaid's tale

Deadpool 2 was awesome

Yeah that's what I was wondering, so they'll somehow have Carol Danvers take on the role Warlock takes in the comics (even though her powers are different)

I enjoyed the film but can't really see any way they can make reversing all this not be the deus ex machina to end all deus ex machinas.

This could be huge:

potentially could completely change our understanding of how memory works, the concept of memory RNA has been around for some time but more in scifi than sci fact.

I had to look it up too

So looks like there's this online community of people who:

Share a clinical condition that (to varying degrees) can cause problems with:
- Impulse control
- Emotional regulation
- Empathy
- Recognising appropriate boundaries
- Black and white thinking
- Separating reality from fantasy
- Taking responsibility for themselves
- Communication skills

who also share hatred towards women and other groups
and who share a lot of anger due to having been bullied and marginalised themselves

who are egging each other on to make increasingly outrageous rants about those groups and how they will hurt them, some of which are now being acted out

and who are also being egged on and cynically manipulated by elements of the far right who have their own agendas (leaving aside the fact that those same elements are likely to have them all exterminated as genetic 'degenerates' if they get in power, and would be themselves responsible for the sort of hatred and bullying they have experienced in their own lives)

What could possibly go wrong?

Interesting - awareness of this problem is growing - these boards remind me of the pro Ana boards in some respects

It was awesome, loved the ending

Can't wait to see how they work Adam Warlock into it though in part 2 - if they even go there (since they majorly changed everything about him in GOTG2 but I presume that's what the end credit was alluding to)

I wish someone would stop giving j j Abrams space.

This whole 'cuck' language meme is just vile in itself

Arts and Entertainment / Re: Anime is real
Why do they all have Michael Jackson noses though? - and such ugly, badly drawn, mouths and big babylike eyes? (and all the women look like little girls in schoolgirl short skirts with big unrealistic boobs which creeps me out). tbh I just find too much anime creepy (Ghost in the shell is one of the few I've enjoyed).

The Last Jedi

Didn't really like it that much. The main series has been pretty much shit but the stand alone Rogue One was quite good and I'm hopeful that the upcoming stand alone Solo will be good as well.

Rogue One was my favourite. I think The Last Jedi had some good bits but also a lot of filler (I don't think they really knew what to do with Finn so just gave him that stupid waste of a sub plot).

Looking forwards to seeing Captain Marvel though - Carol Danvers has long been one of my favourite Marvel characters.

Avengers: Infinity War

Amazing, go see it.  :cry:

Was one hell of an impressive film. I didn't think they could pull it off, but they did.

Saw it last night - wow that ending was very brave.

Hugely different storyline from the comics but used to that

One of the most boring, dumbly bombastic, scores I've ever heard though - the end credits were torture to wait for.

She is exactly who I don't see as doing something wrong.  People identify with symbols and icons and to a large extent define their own beliefs regarding those icons. If cultural icons/symbols aren't meant to be shared then WTF are they meant for? Rastas wear dreads for their own reasons. White blonde kids do for their own reasons too and some of those reasons may be that they identify with the (capitalist) distribution of icons of rastas. That's kind of the point. People started wearing hair like the Beatles too. Denigrating a person's spiritual or intentity relationship with an icon because it isn't authentic enough seems awfully paternalistic to me. 

Dreads/braids etc go back to multiple cultures anyway, not Rastas, they go back thousands of years. Colonialism is the problem here, not people identifying with people who are colonised. We need more people who do that.

Politics and Current Events / Re: Trumpocalypse
Also, in an entirely surprising and unforseeable turn of events...

Donald Trump wrote own health letter, says physician Harold Bornstein

Haha it sure didn't read like it was dictated by Trump ;)

"I can't think of any other way to spend my billions of dollars," he says while his workers are on fucking food stamps and passing out in his warehouses because they don't get breaks.

"I can't think of any other way to spend the billions of dollars I stole from my workers"
