    commentary
    october 8, 2015
    i have commented on comments before

    there’s no such thing as just reading anymore — passively absorbing information being presented to you — without an invitation to voice your opinion. i can’t even be alone in goddamned books anymore. a dotted underline appears: “153 people highlighted this,” the kindle tells me. why on earth would that matter to me. get out of my book

    comment sections have value as avenues for discussion as long as discussion actually can occur there. youtube still has comments, but they could be replaced site-wide with a picture of a small horse, and be of greater service to its users. sometimes you need to know what a horse looks like. how many legs, etc.

    the bleated message of the internet is: everything that pops into your head is important. your most fleeting thought matters every bit as much as what you just read. your hottest possible take needs to be made visible this instant.

    i want conversation, exchange, analysis, thought, dissection. i want discourse. but we live in a post-discourse society. “i read this article” is a modern colloquialism which means “i saw most of the words in this headline.”

    we need to be exposed to opposing views. it rounds us as people. it tests our arguments, and allows us to rethink or discard bad ones. but in such a landscape, purposefully-truncated methods of communication — the tweet, the status update, the collapsible comment — become 140-character lathes to sharpen existing beliefs to little points, to jab at someone else with, who then prepare their own pointy stick in rebuttal

    at some sad point on the curve, comments are just a way to drive up pageviews

    but what do you believe? sound off below!

    The best thing about d mom is if you look at that map there is apparently a world leader somewhere along the Alaska/Canada border. So either Alaska or the Yukon formed its own government in demonworld.

    Gawker's comment sections ate a cesspool of evil.

    Example #1 porn gif from the avengers porno featuring hulk slapping widow's naked ass.

    Example #2 Maisie Williams lookalike cosplaying as her stark character. First comment, "she has a rapable face."

    Example #3 asian female relates how she opted out of jury duty because she didn't trust the police. She gets home and tells this with pride to her black boyfriend. He admonishes her for missing the opportunity for jury nullification, preventing a miscarriage of justice.

    Every fucking comment? Critiquing her actions in the exact same manner that she and her boyfriend did in a the second half of the article, the half that those idiots didn't read.

    It is true that cats do like to stare at absolutely nothing. Ghosts is as good an explanation as any.

    One of the reasons I grew a beard was because in a semi-leadership role in my current job, I really needed clients to stop assuming I was the high school intern brought along to work the projector.
    E: This ended up in the wrong thread I'm too lazy to fix it.

    I don't know what's worse; the fact cats can see ghosts or that they're so profoundly bored by them

    I think the science answer is that cat's eyes tend to instinctively focus upon the target of their hearing, so when they hear something through a wall (etc) they stare at it while they try to listen in, even though there isn't anything to see.

    But I like the ghost answer better.

    One morning, both of our cats were absolutely enraptured by a corner of the ceiling. They were completely still and silent, aside from their ears twitching every now and then. None of us could figure out what had them so enthralled. This continued every morning for about a week before one day I went over to them in their now-usual spot and quietly watched them.

    That's when I heard a very quiet scritching noise. So quiet that just people moving around drowned it out completely. Only by staying completely still and silent was it even audible. I slowly zeroed in on the noise in the ceiling until I reached the air flap that let air circulation into the rafters. There, with beady black eyes looking down into the living room, was a mouse.

    Our cat stared at one spot at the wall for days. When we later busted the wall down during renovations we found a corpse!

    ...of a mouse. It had fallen down the wall and couldn't get back up.

    If it has mass it's not dead, only dormant? Sounds like they need to not be looking at making things that go boom, but rather things that wouldn't be termed conventional weaponry. I mean they have that whole zorth thing, why not try shifting the biomega to an alternate dimension? Or into the sun.

    Maybe they've already tried that in the future? Maybe the Shadow from Beyond Time was a biomega?

    Sounds like they need to complete the loop then, because the Shadow's already been destroyed I think, so they know they're going to win. Which tends to be the problem with circular time loops.

    It's definitely possible to kill them with conventional weaponry though, the first one they fought they just used a railgun - it exploded as soon as it died though, which I think is what they mean.

    Maybe they also incinerated the body? If that's the case then I would hope that Majestic 12 know to do that. In fact, there's no reason M12 wouldn't know all this, because they've got the Super Team Science Five working for them.

    There are few things in existence that are not susceptible to fifteen million degrees Farenheit. Especially not when they're made of biological anything.

    It seemed more like a natural result of the thing dying at the time (and probably a joke about the monsters always exploding in sentai / what have you) -
