Amusingly enough, Marvel once had Namor doing something that would have left our world's GOP in an apoplectic froth: using the vast wealth of Atlantis to purchase “surface-dweller” corporations who habitually polluted the oceans and then completely changing their operations to become eco-friendly. I cannot recall the… Read more
The United States of America has, thus far, refused to sign on with articles 22-28 of the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Considering what those rights are, this surprises me not on the least. Read more
Only the ones that _don’t_ make the big bosses look good. Everyone else can go stand with in the corner and well away from Faux Nooz' attention, with genuine feminists, LGBTQI+ allies, “socialists” and other "un-American" types.
Jeff Bezos has called up that which even he cannot put down: the needs of the workers to earn a living wage and experience humane working conditions. I look forward to seeing him and the entirety of the would-be slave-masters thoroughly humbled, very soon...
Good one! I hang my geeky head in shame over forgetting that, thanks!
I could argue that Disney has _never_ made a truly ‘original’ full-length movie; Uncle Walt reserved all of the top talent for the cartoons and Disneyland. Help a non-Disney-nut out, and name any Disney movie not based on either a public-domain story (e.g. “Snow White”, “Mulan”, or... Yes, I’m going there... “Song of… Read more

Despite a bookshelf-full of tell-all books by former ‘loyal insiders’ backing up a not-so-small library’s worth of public records on the Redcap In Chief’s treatment of his allies, the ones who have not yet been kicked to the wolves still… Read more
“Fetch”... Presumably a reduction from “fetching” because the young whipper-snappers these days have no gosh-danged time to fully pronounce more than the first two syllables of a ‘proper’ word (e.g.: “vaycay” as opposed to the exhausting “vacation”)... But boy-howdy will they let out as many as three syllables for… Read more
Robert Heinlein once made the best back-handed compliment about teenage slang ever, in “Revolt in 2100": the Resistance to the theocratic regime running the U.S. used it as an utterly unbreakable radio-code. Read more
Maybe. I mean, I at least recognized the name, and because the show permeated pop-culture unough to keep showing up in articles here in the Kinja ‘family’ of sites. But if you were quoting one of his routines I still suggest giving credit where it’s due. Even if I'm the only one following this particular discusdion… Read more
