Broadcast live from David Icke's nightmares!

 

I am, somehow, less interested in the weight and convolutions of Einstein’s brain than in the near certainty that people of equal talent have lived and died in cotton fields and sweatshops.

Wolves fighting for dominance as a “thing” came from observation of captive packs.  Observation of genuinely wild packs has revealed that it is not, in fact, a “thing.”

Y’hear that, ya dumbass modern werewolf writers?

hear that, self-styled “alpha males”?

They weren’t even captive packs, they were a bunch of unrelated wolves shoved together in too-small a space.

So if you’re an ‘alpha wolf’ then you are, in point of fact, not the noble, fierce and imposing leader of a group who respects you, but a scared wild creature with no social support frantically lashing out at strangers to try and gain some semblance of control over a fundamentally uncontrollable environment?
Huh.
That would explain a few things.

I want to Let’s Play more bad video games, but I think I need a co-commentator?

lizardsfromspace:

Because bad video games are no fun alone (and ripping off Retsupurae is fun, apparently)

But how would this work (since it’d be over the internet)

Do I stream it live and record a Skype chat or something? Then upload the video. But streaming has a delay

Or I could record it, then upload it unlisted on Youtube, then have a chat and record the discussion - but then it’s not “live” on my end

Also is anyone interested (TDF peeps and people I’ve talked to only)

The Pallas´s Cat, also called Manul, is a small wildcat living in the grasslands and steppe of central asia.
It is named after the german naturalist Peter Simon Pallas, who first described the species in 1776.

That is the most expressive and gelatinous cat I have ever seen.

Pin-tailed Sandgrouse (Pterocles alchata) »by Patrik Wittenby (1|2)

Well here’s an unbelievably magnificent bird with a back like the light filtering through trees to a leafy forest ground or a sunrise gleaming off a gently flowing stream. BIRD. WAI U SO DIVINE

I know this is from a couple days ago but Macbeth is a classic example of the protagonist not being a hero and the antagonist not being a villain.

Yeah! That is a good example. Thanks.

Let’s Public Shame Some Celebrities

First off, we should talk about a celebrity who’s been consistently, openly and unrepentant bigoted or shitty for decades. Someone who deserves to be shamed

THEN let’s point to shit other people said twenty years ago and have never repeated. Say they’re JUST AS BAD as openly violent bigots. In fact, they may have even said they were wrong back then and no longer believe it, but ignore that! People can’t change or learn over time, and we should especially make sure to shame people who said terrible things when they were younger.

Teenagers are of course known to be geniuses, and totally don’t inherent values and opinions from the society around them. Some may say racism is a societal problem infecting all levels of a culture, but we know it’s best fought as a personal flaw where we conflate people who said something bad once when they were 16 to the consistently awful likes of Mel Gibson.

Didn’t this public shaming enlighten you? It’s just so much more productive than actually trying to fight societal bigotry, isn’t it? Didn’t it make you a better, more self-righteous person?
