Other 2a supporters will talk about trigger discipline and safe operation and practical and responsible uses for firearms but not me. I own a gun purely because I crave power and want people to speak to me as if I have the ability to casually murder them. And I’ll admit to this! I’m sure many are sincere when they talk about the joy and nobility of gun sports, but it’s all about cowardice and masculine rage for me. Anyway, my interest in arms is deeply interrelated with my praxis as a spiritually militant pseudocathar light warrior, example: only because of my encyclopedic knowledge of local weapons laws was I able to place this sacred crystal matrix in my window, and now any archonic beam-ray weaponry directed at me by local hylic haters is defracted into rainbows that scatter harmlessly across the yellowed sheets of my army-issue cot. Could a Democrat accomplish this? Let alone a Valentinian?
could always try having an actual lockdown for once
Even if the US government actually did try to do a real, effective lockdown and wasn’t just pissing in the wind of our fragmented nightmare of state and local governments, I’m entirely convinced it still wouldn’t work since this shithole country is full to the tits with literally the worst people the human race has ever produced who will fight every fucking public health ordinance put in place for their god-given right to yell at waiters and retail staff maskless. I mean where I live (California) a shitty little town near me just declared that it seceded from the state so they wouldn’t have to follow our (flimsy as fuck) state COVID regulations. The pure malignant narcissism of America ensures it will never be free of this fucking plague lmfao please get me the fuck out of here I despise it more than I can put into words.
I simply can’t stress enough how this pandemic is being indefinitely prolonged by America (and american manufacturers) hoarding vaccines. This could have been over now, but we refused to help India when they were in desperate need of vaccines, so the Delta variant popped up there. Then Pfizer tried to bleed South Africa dry of anything and everything valuable they have down there before doing anything to help the population, and now we have the Omicron variant.
And people in America still act morally superior for not taking the very vaccines they’ve been hoarding! Like jfc just have some compassion how fucking hard is it
at this point i literally just straight up view companies as fiefdoms exactly the same as they were 600 years ago and more or less consider America a Feudalist nation. is there still hope for me or am i too weird now
Not weird enough. The modern owner of a new car dealership carries the same social capital as a duke used to.
we should lay a claim to some guy’s car dealership and then see if we can fight a bloody war over it
that looks like a condom and the fact that everyone in the notes is saying “the orb” proves that no one on this website fucks
the fuck kinda bouncy-ball ass condoms are you using
the fact that someone thinks that looks like a condom is proof that no one on this website fucks
I was searching for some pretty Hanukkah gifs to schedule a post tomorrow wishing my Jewish followers Happy Hanukkah and I found a fit/shape/body building site that posted this
And I thought to myself, I simply must show my Jewish followers fit Menorah Man

so uh. Ursula Vernon is an acclaimed and accomplished writer (also known as T Kingfisher) of multiple genres, including fantasy and horror - lots of horror. she also wrote and illustrated the award-winning webcomic Digger. I knew this screenshot couldn’t be showing us her whole opinion, so I pulled up the actual tweet, and I was right! she goes on to explain that many in her crowd loved it, including her husband, but that it wasn’t for her. even more relevant than her original thread, though, is this response she had to someone who was asking in (apparently) good faith why she found the lack of humour frustrating:
like. yeah. not every movie requires a comedy element. of course not! but I think this post is ripping unfairly on entirely the wrong person. Vernon was clear in her original thread that being humourless did not make it a Bad Movie, and has been exceptionally straightforward about why that lack of humour felt detrimental to the film in her experience.
Oh my god did people really try to frame the creator of Digger as a clueless Disney zombie
The problem with Dune, in translating from book to movie, is the book can zip chapter by chapter from micro to macro, which allows for variable tension, and the book can be consumed in a pattern that reflects the reader’s tolerance. But in a movie, zipping between galactic view, house view, planet view and seitch view would be problematic. Plus the viewer can’t easily break it into chapters. There’s build and build but no denouement - nothing but crescendo and stop. Comparatively, LOTR was able to more easily break because the books were designed that way.
Sure, call it a lack of tension breakers, but the fact is it is an issue with rhythm. It’s EDM that never hits the bridge, it’s a chorus that never stops. She’s absolutely correct, though I suppose people love to blame the need for something other than three hours of slogging pain on Marvel/Disney/whomever. But Jesus Bambi was the first movie that broke me. Even with a flirty skunk.
…Just to add that I know Ursula well enough to trust her judgment far, FAR above that of anyone who’d have the nerve to consider her some kind of brainwashed Disney drone.

What type of prejudice or popular misinformation about ypur favorite topic drives you mad?
That the American Civil War was about states’ rights and not slavery.
Technically, it was about states’ rights to have slavery. If you read the constitutions of the Confederate states they have clauses specifically to include and protect human slavery. That was the disagreement that started the war.
