I did enjoy the fact that Snyder used the same plot device that the CW show has used every season. In order to save the day, Flash just has to RUN FASTER THAN HE’S EVER RUN BEFORE! Problem solved.
This reminds me of when Ryan Reynolds was cast to star in Green Lantern, my brother remarked that it was weird that they were casting a white guy to play him. He’d only seen the Justice League cartoon, so he assumed that the Green Lantern was always John Stewart.
I have long called for a punitive capital-gains tax on “creating money without creating value.” Speculative investment, crypto trading, anything that exists purely to funnel created money into the hands of people who do nothing to contribute to the real GDP of whatever nation they’re a taxpaying citizen of (or, more… Read more
I don’t claim to be an expert on stats and things but I have been living in Beijing for the last five years (and travelling around the country for my job a lot until this whole thing happened) and nobody I know - friend, colleague, acquaintance - has had it or knows anyone else who has had it.

I think the biggest offense they committed to Monica was making her say, “They’ll never know what you sacrificed for them.”

Oh, they believe in democracy. They just don’t believe in equality. It might seem a minor quibble, but it’s the only thing separating many Democrats from Republicans. And they’re both awful, but while the Republicans own and revel in their awfulness, those Democrats still cling to the facade of being ‘better.’ Read more
I took a vacation to Universal studios 2015/16ish?, and a nice person asked if wouldn’t mind watching some ads and they’d give me 30 dollars. “Sure,” I said, and then proceeded to watch about 24 minutes of ads, All for the Slap. When I was getting my money, I asked the very nice person if this show was an elaborate… Read more
