  2. On Mosquito Buzzers & Prejudice (Split from RPS Moderation)

    Mod Note: Sorry to hijack your post, Lethe, but some context is neccesary. This line of posts was originally in the RPS moderation thread as a reaction to the closure of a previous thread. I (and the...

    Here's a thread on the same subject.

    The only podcast I listen to is Dan Carlin's Hardcore History. If I ever catch up I might have to find something else, but that's a strictly theoretical...

    Young Males: What Are They Good For?

    I'm referring here mainly to males ages 15-25 or thereabouts, although you can stretch it at both ends if you like.

    It seems to me that young males have two, if not unique selling points, then...

    Yeah, I'll go with that. Molyneux has always been a symbol, a punchline. Here he comes across as a person, with all his flaws and idiosyncrasies. So does John, of course, but that's less novel.

    I am amazingly awful at this game, but I keep returning to it for all the reasons people keep talking about.

    It seems unnecessarily brimming with text and numbers, and pseudo-spreadsheets,...

    What is there to talk about? The Japanese draw the lines in the same entirely arbitrary manner that we do: rampant sexualisation and titillation is fine, nipple tassles are fine, take the nipple...

    Nobody owns any games. Free your mind! (And bow down to your corporate overlords simultaneously!)

    Because some people have claimed, all evidence to the contrary, that burning people to death is universally frowned upon. Glenn Greenwald has a couple of recent articles on this particular hypocrisy.

    We might frown upon it when expressed as such, but we still do it and celebrate afterwards. Dropping fire on people from aircraft (as was the Jordanian pilot's mission) or via drones might present...

    The idea that burning people alive is morally wrong is very culturally bound. Or perhaps it could more accurately be said to be universal -- good when we do it (Tokyo, Dresden, Witches, etc.), and...

    So Shi'a Muslims in the now ethnically cleansed city of Baghdad like watching Americans kill Sunnis, and so do the Kurds, who would've thought?

    Is it "narrow minded" to dislike Birth of a Nation? I'd say it's "empty headed" to focus on the directing, acting, etc. at the expense of what the film is actually about and the values it...

    That Nolan is (allegedly) right-wing doesn't necessarily mean anything when it comes to enjoying (or not) his work. It's the values that are in films that matter, and whether those are objectionable...

    A convent of nuns in a mountainous region is disturbed when a (British?) man enters the picture. Erotic...
