No YOU were looking through your parents’ attic for Nerf guns and serendipitously took care of any and all #Halloween preparations.
The Meme of our Years.
this post is beautiful
the other day I was wondering where these people are today
Remember in 1993 when Jurassic Park was like…the end all, be all of special effects?
not gonna lie that still looks intimately real
I’m still somewhat convinced that someone sold their soul to create the special effects in Jurassic Park because that shit is over 20 years old and it still really, really holds up, better than the stuff in a lot of current movies, even.
Fucking witchcraft, man.
it’s the difference between expensive, complicated, pain-in-the-ass animatronics and good old simple CGI work. Filming an actual tangible thing always looks better.
Who remembers the Berenstain Bears? Many people actually remember it as the Berenstein Bears. It’s part of the Mandela theory, or a term that someone is positive something happened although it didn’t. Many attribute these false memories as a glimpse into a parallel universe. (Source)
I had to google it for myself to see if I was bein’ joshed
You’re about to be parks and wrecked
I snorted so hard, why do you do this to me
Nick Offerman vs. Dolan, let’s do this
Why #gamergate is important
Fun fact: Morgan Ramsay, founder of the Entertainment Media Counsel, did an objective study of how much of gaming journalism talks about sexism or social justice.
To do this, he downloaded 130,524 articles from 37 RSS feeds of 23 outlets, including The Escapist, Rock Paper Shotgun, CVG, Edge Online, Eurogamer, Gamasutra, Game Informer, GamePolitics, GamesBeat, GamesIndustry International, GameSpot, GamesRadar, IGN, IndieGames, Joystiq, Kotaku, Massively, MCV, NowGamer, PocketGamer.biz, Polygon, Shacknews and VG24/7, published over a period of twelve months. He then did a search on how often these games articles mentioned sexism, feminism, or misogyny.
The result? Over a period of one year, 0.41% of 130,524 articles referenced feminism, feminist, sexism, sexist, misogyny, and misogynist explicitly.
That’s less than half of one percent.
So next time you hear someone whining that “feminism is taking over video games journalism”, what they’re actually whining about is that feminism exists in video games journalism.
That last sentence is so crucial. The loudest BLAMERGATE HAHAHAHAA proponents say they want gaming journalism to be unbiased and free of politics. What they’re REALLY saying is that “it bothers me when things I read talk about women and feminism and misogny, because I don’t agree with those things” which is a political statement in and of itself. The idea of “holding the gaming journalism industry to a higher standard of integrity and ethics and we’re so fucking stupid jesus fucking christ I can’t take it anymore” is all a ruse to make a bunch of dorks feel more secure complaining that gaming journalism is very slowly beginning to recognize that women exist. And that 0.41% number gives you an idea of just how slowly the realizations are coming.
John Walker (@botherer) of “Rock, Paper, Shotgun” wrote a great thing today about how the most demanding of dweebs are misunderstanding, on a fundamental level, that something isn’t a-political just because it agrees with the majority, or ruffles the fewest feathers. Check it out.
this comic is A+
I think it’s hilarious that his event was cancelled and all he had to say was “for more info read the diversity chapter in my book” or some BS
It was cancelled? XD
Jesus fucking Christ this was a painful read.
I was all “wait, what’s wrong with the comic? That seems pretty on point!” And then I read the linked article and OH. OH NO. OH GOD NO.
Nemo has seen some shit. It’s no wonder he’s a little cracked. That doesn’t make him any less dangerous and terrifying, though.
Thank nobody for that gift.
Thus, the logic of the feminist argument to “Teach men not to rape” is revealed.
Yes because it’s such a radical notion to expect rapists to control themselves.
Uh, we do tell thieves not to rob, though. We actually spend a lot of energy teaching kids that stealing is wrong. We keep trying to teach them it’s wrong through their teens and adult years.
And when someone gets robbed? Cops don’t ask them if their front door was locked. They don’t ask them if they invited the thief into their house and maybe said the thief was free to take things before changing their mind the next day. And this is true even though sometimes people do get robbed by folks they invite in under false pretenses.
Cops and lawyers and judges don’t work together to make people who get robbed feel like shit for not installing extra security systems or putting bars on their windows. They don’t use people’s former history of inviting neighbors in and letting them borrow stuff to argue that they had no right to expect someone to respect their property. The media doesn’t talk about how the thief’s promising life was ruined by their victim’s decision to prosecute.
Your metaphor is bad and you should feel bad.
In fact, it’s fairly common to hear libertarians (and any manner of morons) give such comments as “if you’re on my property trying to steal from me, you’re gonna get shot.” There’s absolutely no tolerance of anyone’s attempt to rob another person of their property or possessions. Way to really fuck that one up, asshole.
