What were you streaming, Silverclaw?

@  Shrug : (20 October 2018 - 05:28 AM)

Russian interference should have been fighting an uphill battle, but as far as I'm concerned we gave them a head start.

@  Shrug : (20 October 2018 - 05:23 AM)

I disagree with Hillary being a good choice to run against Trump. Plenty of mixed feelings about her long before 2016 within our own party. When the DNC has to rig it's own primaries to get their chosen candidate running, maybe you shouldn't expect an easy landslide at the actual election.

@  Pennpenn : (20 October 2018 - 05:20 AM)

It would have also helped if the US was also an actualy democracy where the candidate who gets the most votes wins, but hey.

@  Rycochet : (20 October 2018 - 04:42 AM)

You helped destroy western democracy, but hey, at least no-one can accuse you of bias... Oh wait, they did, still do, and are going to keep doing so as long as you report facts.

@  Rycochet : (20 October 2018 - 04:39 AM)

Hillary was a good choice to run against Trump, the big problem was the media crawling all over themselves to try and push the idea of fairness, and threw her under the bus to do so. Any hint of impropriety was treated as being exactly the same as actual proven criminal acts by Trump in order to avoid being seen as biased... and at the end of it all, he turned around and bit them for doing so because that's who he is.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2018 - 03:34 AM)

Meanwhile, some uplifting news from Germany: While our big parties are rapidly losing voters, and our new "we're not really extreme" right-wing party is gaining voters, there is one other party that is scoring massive points, both in polls and the recent Bavarian state election: The Green Party.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2018 - 03:33 AM)

I still think having Hillary run against Drumpf was a bad choice.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 October 2018 - 03:32 AM)

Well on the bright side, we know more people voted for HIllary than the cheeto.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2018 - 03:31 AM)

I guess many a prepper might have also voted for the person most likely to bring about the end of society they are waiting for.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2018 - 03:28 AM)

Now let that sink in, and then think about how many people voted for Agent Orange.

@  D.M : (19 October 2018 - 09:09 AM)

+They don't really give a crap about God. All their religious talk is just part of the mask. They wanna look like the ideal citizen (what they consider that to be) - the most Christian of all Christians, the most patriotic of all patriots, etc.

@  Pennpenn : (19 October 2018 - 08:13 AM)

That's because she was also greedy, heartless, and despised the poor, which is something the right often loves more than God.

@  RichardT1977 : (19 October 2018 - 07:55 AM)

I find it rather amusing that the party of the Religious Right sees wisdom in a woman who hated the notion of God almost as much as she hated and feared the idea of being part of a family.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2018 - 05:39 AM)

However, another big issue is cultural differences. We do have a sense of humor, it's just different than in other cultures because it is a product of a different culture. Simply put, what you might find incredibly funny is considered unfunny by Germans... and vice versa.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2018 - 05:38 AM)

It's actually a multi-faceted issue. Yes, some Germans are incredibly devoid of humor, although those people exist in other countries too. I have no ideas regarding statistics, but these people exist.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2018 - 05:37 AM)

So, about this long-standing stereotype that "Germans have no sense of humor"...

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 October 2018 - 03:49 AM)

I got enough Rand fighting my way through the Sword of Truth series. I can't imagine trying to read the original work.

@  Pennpenn : (19 October 2018 - 02:39 AM)

All the people who like Rand should go live in a big underwater city. I cannot foresee anything that could go wrong with such a scenario.

That's one of the things the old cable companies got right: Only one or two options per area. The illusion of choice.

Am I the only one here who's been watching this? Are you all too hopped up on ponies?

It's a really awesome cartoon, the right mix of action and humor (most of it surreal) with some great characters and interesting world building, not to mention some mathematical tunes icon-ironhide.gif .

So, those of you who like this show should come discuss it here and those of you who haven't seen it yet should watch a few episodes, imho it beats the pants off a certain other show that shall remain nameless.

10 seconds of a 30 second commercial was about all I could stand. Maybe you can tell me why this is better than every other crappy art cartoon being churned out by CN over the past 15 years.

Adventure Time is great!

Much better than CNs own slock. It was actually an award winning animated short adapted into being a series by it's creator.

I wouldn't have expected it either, but once I actually watched... I don't miss an episode now.

It's really well written, fun clever adventure stuff with good humor and enjoyable characters.. Take classic DnD, Thundar the barbarians post apocalyptic world, Johnny Quest, Kamandi the last boy, Bill Murry, and the Venture Bros (minus the "adult" stuff) and mix it with some fun surrealness and use it to create a well written, surprising cartoon that kids and geeky parents can both love and you have Adventure Time!


-ZacWilliam, seriously, one of the best cartoons on TV right now IMO.

Well for starters, despite it's appearances it is an action cartoon as well as a comedy. It's about Finn the human and Jake the dog in the land of Ooo, which is hinted as being a post apocalyptic wasteland after being devastated by 'The Mushroom War'. Which explains why there are no humans apart from Finn and why everyone is some kind of mutant. It's got an interesting sorta fantasy setting with some technological elements.

The episodes are mostly episodic but there is continuity and the end of last season had 'the big bad' The Lich (who was mentioned in past episodes as being defeated by Billy the Legendary Hero) being resurrected. Think of it like MLP:FiM if the rest of the show was more like the tone set in the pilot (but also much more awesome). The characters are very likeable, Finn and Jake's friendship being very sweet at times, not to mention Princess Bubblegum, Marceline the Vampire Queen or Lumpy Space Princess (OH MY GLOB).

I'll admit some of the adverts can be annoying especially as they tend to show the more surreal moments without context; for example for the newest episode that premiers this week the adverts keep focusing on one character with the most annoyingly screechy voice. If that had been my first experience with it I'm not sure I'd have wanted to watch it either, but give it a couple of episodes (they're only 10 mins long) and see if you like it. If you do, you do, if you don't, you don't.

I watched RS for the first time yesterday; it wasn't bad. I liked the main two characters but the show at times feels like it's trying too hard to be surreal or absurd with the other characters (like OMG THIS GUY IS A GUMBALL MAHCINE FOR NO REASON).

Regular Show is definitely one that needs a few episodes "get". Also, it was apparently inspired by cocaine. EDIT: Tonight's ep is a rerun, but a really good ep to get a feeling for the show when it's firing on all cylinders.

But Adventure, Time, I've loved it since day one, and has very rarely disappointed me. But much like MLP, it can't be explained by simply showing people the funny parts out of context, one needs to watch it, see the great animation (animation itself is different from art style), listen to the funny dialogue (and what they manage to get away with!) and immerse themselves in the pure FUN to be had.

I've adopted Math into my rotation of pseudo-swears. They really do get away with a ton of stuff. LSP is the best. As are Stanley and his family. I hope Fin still has that tiny computer in his throat, I've missed it.

The show has this strange Naive Darkness to it. Like Invader Zim without the bleakness. I mean, they made me laugh out loud at implicit cannibalism.
