    Sad news! Station Master Tama has died.

    mwWeux0l.jpg

    In the early 2000s, the Wakayama Electric Railway destaffed all stations on the Kishigawa Line to cut costs. Instead, local townsfolk were chosen to be the "stationmaster", and in 2007, Tama - a stray cat who was fed by the Kishi Station master - was chosen by the company to become the new official station master of Kishi. Her role mostly consisted of greeting passengers, and in lieu of a salary, she was paid in cat food.

    Tama grew to be a local superstar, directly contributing to increased tourism in the region and use of the train line in general. She was promoted to Super Station Master in 2008, gaining an office with a litter box; in 2010, she was promoted to Operating Officer, making her the first cat to be an executive in a railway company.

    She was 16 years old when she died.

    May she ride the train into the afterlife, shiny and chrome.

    Of course calling Obamacare socialism is a bit like calling a subway sandwich food.

    Obama care is literally the largest wealth transfer to wealthy interests in decades. It is a massive hand out to the insurance industry, which forces people to obtain coverage but which does not require the insurers to control their spending.

    i'm not saying that at all, btw

    i'm just saying that citing yourself as representative of a view that most americans hold but do not understand is not really an argument

    a far better poll would ask their opinion on socialism, ask if they benefit from any social programs in america (but not call them that - just simply list the programs they are enrolled in), and then ask if they considered those programs socialist

    really depends on what the details of your health insurance plan are

    unless you made little enough to qualify for medicaid

    which depends on if you're in a state made out of assholes or not because that can be $21,707 household income for a family of 2 in a state that took the medicaid expansion

    or like $13 for a family of 8 in texas

    Winky keep in mind that Miyazaki was also saying that stuff in the 1980s - his reflective essay on the life of Tezuka was entirely framed around him saying things like "everything Tezuka said or thought was wrong", that Tezuka's work had ruined the Japanese animation industry, etc. There's another essay published in 1982 where he derides animation that isn't within his specific vision, and says that the advent of home video will finally be the death knell of bad/limited animation (since it will just start cannibalising itself) and he can start getting stuff he likes out there.

    There's definitely changes that happened in the period, and the presentation I'm giving at a conference next week is mostly about the changes in narrative structure that changed between the pre- and post-1990s, but Miyazaki has always loathed the animation industry spawned by "Tezuka's curse" (aka anything limited animation).

    Alright, so after reading this post I wiki'd Tezuka to see what else he'd made besides for Astroboy and Metropolis, and I'm ashamed to learn that he had made a film in 1970 called "Cleopatra: Queen of Sex" and I didn't even know about it!

    It's really bad - it was made as part of Tezuka desperately scrounging for money wherever he could, and it was a dismal failure.

    Tezuka: really influential dude, but maybe that wasn't for the best in some ways

    Here's the study from that graphic Crab linked
    http://www.people.hbs.edu/mnorton/norton ariely in press.pdf

    this one I think does this that for you
    Overall, these results demonstrate two primary messages.
    First, a large nationally representative sample of Americans
    seems to prefer to live in a country more like Sweden than like
    the United States. Americans also construct ideal distributions
    that are far more equal than they estimated the United States
    to be—estimates which themselves were far more equal than
    the actual level of inequality. Second, there was much more
    consensus than disagreement across groups from different
    sides of the political spectrum about this desire for a
    more equal distribution of wealth, suggesting that Americans
    may possess a commonly held ‘‘normative’’ standard for the
    distribution of wealth despite the many disagreements about
    policies that affect that distribution, such as taxation and
    welfare (Kluegel & Smith, 1986).

    NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ—Friends and coworkers of local man Alan Tessler confirmed Wednesday that whenever they feel discouraged or depressed, they need only think of their 36-year-old acquaintance to put everything back into perspective, a fact to which Tessler, by all accounts, remains completely oblivious.

    A trap is for fish: when you've got the fish, you can forget the trap. A snare is for rabbits: when you've got the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words are for meaning: when you've got the meaning, you can forget the words.

    No. We don't really have a word for it. It isn't even regulatory capture or special interest lobbying. It's really just law makers being bad at their jobs and not being able to imagine a system that is different from the current private insurance system. The ACA is not really such a huge reform. It's mostly some nice changes to insurance laws coupled with an attempt to solve the individual insurance market failure of adverse selection, but with no incentive for insurers to offer their plans at lower prices than they did while the market failure was on going.

    I feel you're being intentionally minimizing here. It goes far being "free stuff" because of course it isn't "free stuff" in any sense and support for social welfare programs is much deeper and nuanced than a simple desire for that for which you must not pay.

    They have some pretty hilarious Tezuka anecdotes.

    ah yes the gallup poll

    that is all well and fine but i am willing to bet a not insignificant percentage of those in the "no" column have a tenuous grasp of socialism

    and likely benefit from socialist programs in america

    yes the "americans are idiots, if they only really knew what they believed they'd agree with me" argument.

    I'm not a fan.

    You know about the polls that said Americans like everything obamacare does when listed out separately

    But when asked about obamacare as a whole people were against it


    Lol

    I mean, yeah.

    People like free stuff.

    They weren't so thrilled at getting a big fine for not opting in.

    But yes, that was true.

    "people like free stuff" seems about as cartoonish as "people idiots who don't know they agree with me"

    i don't think there are many people in favor of police departments who don't realize they also pay for them through taxes

    But many would agree that we need to have more things given to us that we don't need to pay for, if you offer that option.

    who's offering that option?

    Allegedly a voice of reason.

    Auuuuuuuguh. DAMMIT. The trade in deal needs an Xbox with 250 GB of storage, mine has 229.
    God.
    That is just... so fucking frustrating.

    um, where are you getting that number?

    I think it's just the formatted/unformatted difference.



    If I'm right I'm going to lol at you for a few days.
    if you're going to do so I'm going to remind you that you're an old
    I am younger than the games you played when you were a kid
    Probably younger than the games you played while you're in college
    spool, tell me, what was hunting wooly mammoths like

    idk ask your dad at home where you live because you're too babby to sell your xbox without permission.

    ;)
    previous posts have established I will be needing my parents for this, yes
    old can't even remember posts from a few minutes ago

    who wants to talk about comments made in prior days about breastfeeding and nipple piercing
    i prepared slides

    are you pro or anti nipple
    that part of the conversation is actually the boring part because there's no evidence that nipple piercing impacts your ability to breastfeed (no strong evidence the other way, either - not something studied rigorously for obv. reasons, altho lots of anecdotal claims that it doesn't matter as long as you get it done well in advance of your pregnancy and take the stud/jewelry out when doing the feeding)

    the more interesting part is the claim that not breastfeeding your child is harming them (esp. because i think that claim wasn't made on the basis of the short term benefits of breastfeeding but the alleged long term benefits)

    Shameful pursuits and utterly stupid opinions

    I pay for water service, my police, fire, and ambulance service, my local schools, social security and medicare, medicaid, the US military, etc etc

    all of these are social services provide by my government (which I own and pay for) for the benefit of myself and my fellow citizens

    much of this would even be considered "socialism"

    none of it is "free"

    to boil it down it "people like free stuff" tells me that you either don't respect the opinions being written about in this conversation or you are uninterested in joining the conversation in a serious manner and are having a laff

    r u avin a laff m8?
