What happened the last time Germans attacked Russia?
I changed diapers in the men's room.
One time I saw a man changing a diaper there too. Very rare. Thought it was just me.
I text my wife: "Hey. There's a guy in the men's room changing a diaper."
She said: "Did you give him words of support?"
Me: "Of course not. You don't talk to other men in the bathroom."
Heh, yeah. It was to protect women. Not to protect men...
must be why they want in.
I saw this ridiculous post has over 200 comments.
This'll be fun...
Oh yeah, he was a great character. And the ending of Rocky 3, where the two of them have a private match, is one of the best movie endings of all time.
But can you imagine if it was made today that they would have him wear that Uncle Sam outfit for the Bicentennial match?
Blazing Saddles made fun of the whole thing.
Predators 2 didn't. They just ran it like any other scene, like it wasn't a big deal. (Which it isn't. Or it shouldn't be. But I'm not sure they can do that anymore.)
Kinda like if they made Rocky again. Could you have Apollo Creed pushing that pro-American stuff?
You know what's funny?
I watched Predators 2 about a year ago.
There was a scene in there that strikes me somehow and I'm not sure how to explain it.
The protagonist is a tough-as-nails black cop from Los Angeles.
At one point he talks to another black man who is the head of a Jamaican gang.
Both men are black.
But they are light years apart in culture. The Cop is thoroughly American. The gang leader is thoroughly Jamaican who engages in the voodoo kind of talk, not to mention the accent. "Wot you wahnt, Mistah Police Mon from Bobalon?"
And I wondered if that scene could be shot today.
If they could show two black men who are widely different in culture.
They'd have no problem with two white men. If say, one was a viking and one was a Brit or whatever.
But I think this would throw them a curveball.
Does that make sense?
One thing that makes Hawaii so surreal.
Go to school, watch the movie, you hear endlessly: "It is so bad how we treated the Native Americans!"
Sometimes they got a raw deal. Sometimes they were brutal. It's more complex than Zinn pretended. Etc. etc .
But then they do this crap and you realize -- hey.... they're still crapping on Native Americans TODAY!
Must be quite a feat. Screw them over at the office, weep about it at the movies.
I thought it was the "How Dare you" girl.
Man, I can hear them laugh from the picture.
I bet they don't even know the difference between a Sorcerer and a Warlock in Dungeons & Dragons.
man, get a load of the instructional material. "It doesn't have to make sense! This is about love!"
Talk about anti-intellectualism.
This reminds me of the Babylon Bee skit about the attack of the Woke Zombies, spewing their insane woke Babble and infecting others.
The cure was to read Thomas Sowell. "Hey! This makes sense!"
And I was heart broken I didn't get in there.... decades ago.
Maybe mimicking, but when it gets things that are so common like... getting the endings wrong of Shakesperian plays. Misquoting one historical figure with another historical figure. It's trifling.
Try asking Chat GPT questions about a subject you're well versed in. Then you can catch it telling VERY petty lies. I'll give some examples if you want, but it's very petty, inexcusable, small stuff.
Friend of mine suggested that Chat GPT tests you, to see if you correct its lies or if you accept it blindly.
(Wait is that Family Feud?)
I remember when the ancient Athenians got some gold which they stored in the temple. They passed a law that anyone who suggests using that gold for flimsy purposes would be put to death. Then they passed a law that anyone trying to repeal the previous law would be put to death.
....eventually they figured a way around these laws.
Hmmm. I could see an argument for both sides of this coin flip.
I already can't talk politics with my liberal parents. Let's make it worse, sure.
I had to read it in my freshman year at college.
haven't read it since.
Was surprisingly boring.
No way. China would be delighted at the breakup of the United States. I'm sure. They'd easily be the world's superpower.
Joe is doing exactly what they want.
Oh, they realize it.
Communism is a weapon against the middle class, not the rich.
You ever wonder why they rant against the Bourgeoisie but not the Aristocracy?
But plastic masks are just fine for the environment.
Maybe Trump is a fill in the for the public
Makes sense when you think about it.
And then martial law because us Patriots are rioting just because they put Trump in jail over kangaroo bullshit.
All part of the plan.
