Football fans remember Michael Sam. I’d bet that queer boys playing amateur football know who Michael Sam is and are grateful for his example. To those boys, the ones I’d argue matter the most, there is a big difference between getting drafted and making the roster, never mind lasting five years in the league. It’s Read more

I think it’s that they didn’t actually let Michael Sam play. They cut him before the season began, so he was the first openly gay man *drafted* into the NFL, but this guy is the first *active player* in the NFL. Read more

It’s hard to deny that Terminator and Aliens haven’t had a massive influence on everything from subsequent sci-fi films, video games and even actual real life science and technology innovations. Titanic was pretty amazing from a historically accurate and obviously a box office standpoint. Avatar was a visual spectacle Read more

Thank you for bringing this to my attention, I made a big fail here. The post has been updated.

People want this to be a lab leak because it’s a lot easier to cope with the idea that “if China just had tighter lab security none of this would have happened” than it is to cope with the idea that pandemics are going to pop up every once in a while, and it is painfully obvious that we are totally unprepared in all Read more

With actual horrible people out there having full-throated access to the “public bullhorn” it seems kind of, I dunno, petty” to dump on Teigen.

Whatevs... I could probably do the same if I could give birth.

I broke 19 seconds in the 100 last year!

That’s great, I like track and field and would be happy to see all records from the 80s and 90s broken. Those decades seem to be prime years for cheaters, before communism and its state-sponsored doping programs fell in the early nineties, and before the BALCO investigations in the USA more than a decade later. I know Read more

I’m as nervous about whether they will manage to make a sequel that can live up to the original as I was about Obama when he first got elected and folks had him in Superman memes... I remember thinking “there’s no way he can live up to these crazy expectations...”  Spiderverse was that level.  I don’t know how they

I mean, I got to enjoy all the anger online of the people who paid $50 for this obvious con who are so stupid they genuinely believed this would be some kind of fight. Read more
