    The thing that struck me most about reading the Dune series earlier this year is how incredibly 2nd wave it's view on women are. Like, fucking hardcore gender essentialism all up ins.

    Mostly though, it was weird and rambly and poorly structured and often terribly written.

    Though I ended up enjoying Heretics of Dune alot more then I remembered from before.

    well I wouldn't call it terribly second wave - feminism hardly has a monopoly on essentialism. dune is also essentialist along class lines, too.

    Mordor has kinda janky graphics in general but its ok because the gameplay is super rad, and that's only after playing it for about a half hour before it got too late.

    Yeah, it's pretty sweet. I need to look in the upgrade tree to see if I have any space clearing moves available for when dealing with large groups of enemies.

    actually is super common.

    Why.

    Why do people not understand that objectification is not itself sexism.

    It can be applied in a sexist way.

    Or a racist way.

    Or whatever biased and/or bigoted way.

    But it's, like, its own separate thing.

    Is Elki the only one that doesn't like Mordor, or is that a common opinion?

    Someone said it reminded them of AC1, fun concept but really repetitive. That might've been Elki, too.

    I like it. And I didn't say that, but... AC1 is one of my favorite games of all time. I might have mocked it a little this afternoon for day 1 DLC, but the game is fun so far and it's drawing me in. This is despite it having so many systems that I get a popup every-time I look at a thing, or press a button, or kill a different enemy, or breathe funny for two hours. It's quite much. I want to turn off more visual hints, but the options look pretty limited in that regard.

    Convenient, since that's already what I use stun technique for, sort of. I stun an enemy at the fringe, and then attack him to propel me out of the center of the enemy group while maintaining a chain to get a finisher.

    oooooohhh tough break dumbass
    The Ohio State student who became an Internet joke after being body-slammed by an Ohio State coach is losing his academic scholarship.

    Anthony Wunder, 21, ran onto the field during last Saturday’s Ohio State home victory against Cincinnati and as he got close to the Ohio State bench, he was stopped and slammed by assistant strength and conditioning coach Anthony Schlegel, a former Ohio State linebacker.

    Wunder, a fourth-year engineering student, is part of the Evans Scholars program, which provides tuition and housing for former golf caddies. Because Wunder is facing charges of misdemeanor criminal trespassing, the program revoked his scholarship and housing privileges, according to his attorney Mark Collins.

    Collins entered a not-guilty plea.

    Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said he did have a talk with Schlegel about the hit.

    "I appreciated him protecting our players," Meyer said earlier this week. "[But] I'd rather him not have a lawsuit if something bad would happen, you drill a guy like that.

    "So we had a partial-serious conversation. And we also gave him a 'Hit City' award, our team, and had a little fun with it, too."

    Collins told the Columbus Dispatch that the ferocity of the hit would be something he would continue to look at and discuss.

    Yeah man, I tell ya what, man, that dang ol' internet, man, you just go in on there and point and click, talk about w-w-dot-w-com, mean you got the naked chicks on there, man, just go click, click, click, click, click, it's real easy, man.

    I haven't unlocked it yet, but the normal sword swings seem to have enough aoe and range to keep me out of really sticky situations. captains that block breaking counters are an issue. Shields you can kill from afar. Honestly, all the complaints about mixed units are weird. Just snipe hunters and shields from mid-range with focus. It isn't that rough. They all usually die in one headshot. And if you can get lucky there are runes for bows that give focus/elf shot for headshotting.

    Even though I love OSU and have like four dozen friends that went there, I would laugh if the coach got hit with an assault charge, since you aren't supposed to ... you know ... do that to people.

    KENNER, La. (WGNO) - After a weekend of rumors, Kenner police released mug shots and additional details on a sex scandal involving two Destrehan High School English teachers and a student.

    At a press conference Wednesday, authorities said Shelley S. Dufresne, 32, and Rachel Respess, 24, had a threesome with a 16-year-old student.

    The alleged incident happened at Respess’s home in Kenner after a football game.

    Kenner police also released some details about the student, saying he is a junior at Destrehan High School and that they’re looking into the possibility that he videotaped or took pictures of the encounter.

    It's really not that punishing. Also, I played the first captain mission like it was a Far Cry 3 outpost stealth liberation and that was loads of fun. Too easy for me to do multiple times, though.

    what is it saying then

    i tend to interpret leto as herbert's pet avatar on politics

    handwaving about the effects of ancestral memory is one thing, talking about applicable politics is another

    leto is not meant to be any sort of ideal figure

    he is specifically trying to solve an existential problem: he wants to create a situation where the human species will spread outward and diversify such that it can never again be threatened with extinction due to any one event (a nuclear war, a sun going nova, the heat death of the universe, or the vicissitudes of a single all-powerful, all-prescient ruler). everything leto does is bent to that sole purpose and he specifically states that after him it will never again be possible for any one being to be in the position he is in again.

    I think that that categorically excludes it from being any sort of model of governance.

    In various interviews and exegeses, Herbert himself makes it very explicit that he was writing against the notion of what he called a "superhero," a person in command of enough unregulated power that a single act of poor judgment on their part could spell the death of millions or doom the species outright (this was written in the context of the 1960s, after all).

    Dune Messiah strikes me as being particularly clear about this. We revisit the triumphant hero of Dune ten years later to discover that his victory ended in bloody religious jihad, a state-sanctioned inquisition, and nuclear terrorism.

    That's not to say he doesn't have wackadoo politics, of course. He was a science fiction writer in the 1960s, it's de rigueur. I think the absence of computers and machines, aside from being a useful storytelling contrivance, reflects some of the author's actual attitudes. There was a slightly New Agey belief in untapped powers of mind and body. And as shryke mentions, a whole lot of gender essentialism that culminates in mind-controlling magic vaginas.
