It's really addictive. I visit it for one show and suddenly it's an hour later and I'm several pages away having followed tangential links.

Monkeys are pretty well represented aphormism-wise, in both a positive and negative manner.

Monkey business, or monkey shines, is usually something shady, and trying to get a monkey off your back sucks, especially if you arent serious about it but just monkeying around.
That kind of bad behavior is infectious because, monkey see monkey do.

Throwing a monkey wrench into someones plans can be good or bad, but if you arent down w. that just let everyone know they cant make a monkey out pf you.
Being a monkey’s uncle is pretty benign, and spanking the monkey is no one’s business but your own.
Being a grease monkey or code monkey at least means you gave a steady job which is good.

Trying to remember all these was more fun than a barrel full of monkeys.

Yeah, primates are interesting in that they are both much more clever than other animals, but behave more savagely than humans. So one story might be about them giving wisdom to a lion or whatever, and another will be about how humans are always in danger of deteriorating into them.

ICT / Russia vs Japan

Russia and Japan go to war. Nukes will not be used. No one else will aid either side. Who wins?

Marvel Zombies / Re: What has Aaron done?

He’s trying to mimic Ragnoraks tone in Avengers for Thor and it’s not working for comic Thor. It’s written for children

Ragnarok had comedy but it balanced that against Thor being a handsome badass, great action scenes and the situation being extremely dire.

That and Disney Thor still has gravitas despite being a fundamentally comedic character. When Thor talks about how he's killed countless foes, and if Thanos turns out to be the one who kills Thor instead, well, "what more can I lose?", you feel for him. He's lost his father, mother, brother, best friends, and land in a very short time, and it's not played for laughs at all.

Debate / Re: Is trump really a racist

He's old-man-racist. Which is to say, he's the kind of guy who will like, even admire, individual members of various races, but he makes ugly assumptions about non-whites in general, and his assumptions color his policies, but he doesn't actively believe in Neo-Nazi politics. Frankly I don't think he has a thought-out political philosophy at all. He just has some old-man assumptions and a reflex to demagogue to gain the favor of crowds. If anything, he's a textbook example of how an old-man-racist with real power and not much brain-power will eventually go down the road of policies that aren't much different in practice from Neo-Nazis.

Is this King of the Damned Lestat, or an earlier iteration?

Anchovies?!? Bleh.

Yeah, every once in a while I just get in the mood, man. When I do I really load up, getting the maximum number of toppings, and even getting a couple of tins extra and putting them on the pizza.

His pizza is horribly bland. The only times I ever buy it is when I am really in the mood for anchovies, and feeling too lazy to go to the store. Like once every three months, tops.
