Messy, unfocused, shoddy effects, poor villain. Few good jokes, Ezra Miller is the obvious highlight. Otherwise, not worth your time. 4/10

I'm going to post a common phrase or quote, and it is your mission to post it again, but, as the title suggests, increasingly verbose. The trick is not to go too far overboard with each post; there should be an observable, gradual progression of complexity and convolution.

After I let the chain run on for some time, I will thank the last post and start over with a new phrase/quote.

General / Robots have more rights than women in the Middle East
« on: October 31, 2017, 09:15 AM »

Not only was the robot granted full citizenship by the Saudi government, it also was able to go out in public not accompanied by a man and wasn’t required to cover its head or body.

It took decades for women to be allowed to legally drive in that country. Wonder what else Sophia will be able to do?

General / I think I ate my parents
« on: October 17, 2017, 09:58 PM »
Ever since 6th grade I was told that I needed to keep kosher, and I never seemed to have a problem until around seventh grade, where I started eating pork. Now it's eighth grade and my current diet is
Chicken parmesean
Non-examined cauliflower
My parents

Whenever I eat anything resembling parents, I get punished, and it's really starting to stress me out because I'm starting to realize that I can't really do much better than this, so this is going to continue for a while. I'll let you know by the way that I have eating disabilities, and while that's no excuse for eating my parents, I still don't understand how eating my parents is a bad thing, especially since I've been trying really hard to do well.

My parents also don't deal with eating their parents, and while I understand that, I don't understand how eating my parents is bad. And in case you don't know, those two parents are daily meals that are worth nothing on my diet at all. I could have a parent and one missing parent and I'd get punished. School is getting so damn stressful! Please I need help

General / mother!
« on: September 16, 2017, 09:15 PM »
Despite the great performances, splodeed up visuals, sheer tension, violence and gore, it's basically the story of the Bible meshed with the secular goings-on of the modern world. Nothing terribly original.

If you're looking for something artsy and twisted and creative, see it. If you're looking for refreshing thoughtful storytelling, pass. If you're looking to get weirded out and affected and mind raped, it's probably the one for you.

General / How to safely view the eclipse without special glasses
« on: August 21, 2017, 12:04 PM »
Take a scrap of paper, poke the tiniest hole possible in it, preferably with a tack or pin, and use it as a peephole. Negligible amounts of sunlight pass through allowing for almost continuous viewing.

General / Google's Ideological Echo Chamber
« on: August 08, 2017, 11:14 AM »
For those of you who don't know, a Google employee in Silicon Valley anonymously released a ten-page manifesto that explored big corporations' (with an emphasis on Google) claims that discrimination and disparity between the sexes are the result of "toxic masculinity." He highlighted these claims, and then rebutted them in a perfectly calm, rational, cooperative, logical, and factual manner.

Here is the full document:

Based on his language, one can assume this guy (later identified as James Damore) is a moderate leftist - he proposes non-discriminatory ways to better mix the sexes in the workplace, claims that racism and sexism are still problems in society, and mentions striving for more demographic inclusion in general.

This document is great. From a moderate standpoint, he highlights Google's ill-advised attitudes towards inclusion and "implicit bias," proves with statistics and facts why they're ill-advised, and ends by suggesting cooperative and completely fair methods to smoothly counter and end these practices. From a perfectly coldly logical standpoint, it may not be a perfect argument, but it still goes to show that people are waking up and trying to find alternate and more rationally sound ways to achieve equality in the workplace.

And how does Google, one of the biggest and most powerful corporations on the planet, respond?

By firing the guy and releasing this statement in response:


I'm Danielle, Google's brand new VP of Diversity, Integrity & Governance. I started just a couple of weeks ago, and I had hoped to take another week or so to get the lay of the land before introducing myself to you all. But given the heated debate we've seen over the past few days, I feel compelled to say a few words.

Many of you have read an internal document shared by someone in our engineering organization, expressing views on the natural abilities and characteristics of different genders, as well as whether one can speak freely of these things at Google. And like many of you, I found that it advanced incorrect assumptions about gender. I'm not going to link to it here as it's not a viewpoint that I or this company endorses, promotes or encourages.

Diversity and inclusion are a fundamental part of our values and the culture we continue to cultivate. We are unequivocal in our belief that diversity and inclusion are critical to our success as a company, and we'll continue to stand for that and be committed to it for the long haul. As Ari Balogh said in his internal G+ post, "Building an open, inclusive environment is core to who we are, and the right thing to do. 'Nuff said. "

Google has taken a strong stand on this issue, by releasing its demographic data and creating a company wide OKR on diversity and inclusion. Strong stands elicit strong reactions. Changing a culture is hard, and it's often uncomfortable. But I firmly believe Google is doing the right thing, and that's why I took this job.

Part of building an open, inclusive environment means fostering a culture in which those with alternative views, including different political views, feel safe sharing their opinions. But that discourse needs to work alongside the principles of equal employment found in our Code of Conduct, policies, and anti-discrimination laws.

I've been in the industry for a long time, and I can tell you that I've never worked at a company that has so many platforms for employees to express themselves—TGIF, Memegen, internal G+, thousands of discussion groups. I know this conversation doesn't end with my email today. I look forward to continuing to hear your thoughts as I settle in and meet with Googlers across the company.



This is...horrible. By the language and rhetoric used in the statement, it is clear that whoever this "Danielle Brown" character is either a powerful idiot who skimmed the document, or is a manipulative ideologue who wielded her snowflake-y position of power like a mallet and completely wiped this guy clean from existence. It's literally the same trite, baseless talking points being spouted by these morons in all echelons of power. "Oh, we value diversity and do not approve of these incorrect points of view."

Incorrect, eh, lady? (Or, whatever you identify as?) Hm. That's quite a bold statement. Why don't you TELL us why the viewpoints expressed in the document are wrong? Do you have any logical rebuttals? Maybe some scientific studies that prove otherwise? Are you even going to explicitly address anything in the document? No? Just going to release a cliched Orwellian statement and fire the guy who dared to "wrongthink?"

Because it sounds to me like instead of being a reasonable, mature, professional individual and trying to engage in a discussion, you decided to go complete fascist and literally blot the "impure" from existence and deliver the "truth," a "truth" which only validates the document you're supposedly countering, a "truth" that limply goes against years of research and science that more qualified and respectable individuals have conducted and verified, a "truth" that shows that you, the corporate far-leftist devils currently dictating us, HAVE NOT LEARNED ANYTHING FROM WHAT'S TRANSPIRED THE LAST FEW YEARS.

splode. YOU.

"People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals sued Slater and the San Francisco-based self-publishing company Blurb, which published a book called "Wildlife Personalities" that includes the monkey selfies, for copyright infringement. It sought a court order in 2015 allowing it to administer all proceeds from the photos taken in a wildlife reserve in Sulawesi, Indonesia to benefit the monkey."
