Well, to all the hordlings' and baboons' dismay, I did not go and die in a fire (just yet). Another fucking butane honey lab explosion, though. On the one hand, it's hilarious that these dirtbags blow their faces off on a regular basis. OTOH, potentially torching two counties is not funny.

I have a hot date tonite, and am in too good a mood to check back in on the WEIT capital punishment thread. So far, it's been dominated by the same sort of regressive leftist nastiness found at Pharyngula or TFA. For attempting to make a calm, reasoned case for the death penalty while giving serious consideration to arguments contra, I've been labeled "barbaric", "vindictive", "vengeful", heartless, and accused of taking pleasure in the suffering of others. I've been subjected to a barrage of base polemic, gish galloping, goalpost shifting, petty semantic quibbles, and sniping.

That massive gaping cunt and disbarred public defender, Ken K. Kucek, categorically denied he'd ever made personal attacks against me, then added that I was after all a racist and a sexist. I guess that counts as a data point for determinism, because the little shit just couldn't help himself.

And seriously, Ken, what's with the pretentious french colloquialisms? Je connait aussi quelque mots piquant, tu fils de salop.

It's turned into a turf war, with the SJWs as usual trying to silence opposing views BAMN. Something I used to go to WEIT to avoid.


Really?

So, after Burzum's recommendation, I've watched the first 4 episodes of The Boys.

It's gross, disgusting even, lots of gore, violence, sex, vulgar language, bad jokes.

In other words: I love it!

I'm doing the same.

However, as they have white-washed (or Americanized - it amounts to the same thing) the identity of Wee Hughie from Scottish to American, there maybe something lost in translation going from comics to TV.

No references to 'The Broons' or 'Oor Wullie' for one.



And Karl Urban's East London via Wairarapa accent is a bit distracting at times.

One of the great contributions Scotland has made to world culture.

I'm amazed that Frank Quitely (although quite frankly that may not be the name he was born with) - managed to make a fortune out of re-purposing this art style to portray Batman, Superman & the X-Men in American comics.

Hmmm...maybe you'll know the answer to this: the latest Slipknot release is linked to "The Boys" and features clips throughout the video (below), is called "Solway Firth." The lyrics don't mention why the song has that title and I can't find anything online from interviews that might explain it. Having never read the comic/graphic novel, is there a connection between Hughie and Solway Firth? It's a very random name for a song by an American thrash band and it's been bugging me.



https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solway_Firth

I'm betting it's something really blatant/obvious but I'm too fucking stupid to make the connection.

No obvious connection that I can think of.

Solway Firth is near the Scottish-English border.

In the comics Hughie is from the small highland town of Auchterladle. Which looks like something off of a tin of shortbread they would sell to tourists. (Garth Ennis is not always the most subtle of writers).

My written English is bloody awful. A nasty combination of skill-fade and immersion within an environment where "squaddie speak" is the norm have turned me into a cretin. Don't get me wrong, I have an extensive vocabulary, it's just the bolting together and structural aspects (punctuation) that I struggle with.

Having said that, whenever I encounter gems like this, I feel like Tolkien...

Of course it was an avalanche, duh. But was the avalanche caused by the Coriolis force, or a Soviet Air Force test EMP blast? And after the avalanche, were their faces eaten by Yeti or escaped gulag prisoners?

Gaming--sorry "esport"--reminds me of chess. I always thought chess was gender segregated, some kind of holdover from sexist days of yore, but it's not. It's just that women comprise single digit percentages of competitors. There are women-only tournaments, meant to encourage female participation, just as I hear there are for esport. But, the numbers are still miserable, and what's more, nobody seems to know why. Are men's brains just better at doing chess? Are women being hounded out of chess by sexist players? Or maybe women just don't like chess as much as men (my guess).

There are 1680 grandmasters in the world today. 37 are women.

Exceptional work.

Is there anything sillier than blocklists? Especially their unintended consequences, as lazy people simply copypasta names and lists without thinking. A number of times I've been surprised to find myself blocked and it's because I followed someone like Diversity and Comics, or Milo (from 2009 when he was at The Kernel!). People are hopeless.

IMO it's not boring to play but it sure as shit is boring to watch other people do it. Trash talking does not improve the appeal.

Then again, the same could be said of a lot of sports. I used to be on a swim team, and for the life of me I could never understand its appeal as a spectator sport.

I was going to post an article about prototype contact lenses with a zoom function.

But I'll settle for this instead...

Heidi Mehta repors on NdGT's exoneration, quotes the NYT extensively, fails to provide the source of the quotes:

Any bets on whether she edits the post without acknowledgement ?

I can't be alone in thinking this.
Most of the games I played ended with someone overturning the board and swearing off the rest of us dirty capitalists.

Toxic Masculinity is an evolved trait, but we shall overcome by letting women rule the world (oh and by sharing mates, one per incel):

Matt Cavanaugh wrote: Chess is stupid and boring. Discuss.
I was never very good, but when I played it, I can say that it has its moments. I can see how people who are very good can find it obsessive. It's a mix of intellect, greed and conquest, so it has all the elements for high entertainment. But it's all going on inside people's heads, so the entertainment value is nowhere near as obvious as video gaming.

That being said, I can say from experience that there's nothing more mortifying than having your ass wiped all over the board by a better player, so it's best to stay in your class.

I was thinking more about the splinters from the board.
