Doctor Who: Series 11 Trailer #2

FlowersInHisHair says...

That's what it takes these days. People want a bit of darkness and seriousness mixed in. Very often Old Who erred on the wrong side of cheesy. The camp old days of Doctor Who And The Aliens Made Of Bubble Wrap are over and I think, on balance, that's for the best.

I loved Dr. Who back in the 80s when it was gloriously cheesy fun. Now it seems like the show takes itself a little too seriously.

The GOP’s Corrupt Bargain with "Reckless," "Erratic" Trump

A Scanner Darkly-Alex Jones Scene

FlowersInHisHair says...

Except that YouTube (a private company) refusing to host his videos isn't at all equivalent to the government dragging him away and silencing him against his constitutional rights. Obvious, perhaps, but worth saying anyway, given that's how the alt-right have been portraying his "takedown". Also, he was only banned from Twitter for a week and is back spewing his hateful dangerous lies on that platform as if nothing happened, with the tacit approval of its CEO, who loves the clicks.

The Mueller Investigation Is Not A Witch Hunt

FlowersInHisHair says...

Not to defend these particular criminals, but it's worth considering what actually happened in historical witch-hunts (that is, where people were looking for what they thought were actual witches). Thousands of innocent people were manipulated/forced/tortured into "pleading guilty" in real witch hunts, and all of their confessions were fake - not a single person convicted of witchcraft in history was guilty.

Flynn, Gates, etc, are guilty.

The Kind of Story We Need Right Now: Server Bodyslams Jerk!

FlowersInHisHair says...

If she had actually body-slammed him, I'd see your point (though maybe still not agree with you) but she didn't, she just spun him around and pushed him to the ground. He attacked her, for crying out loud.

Digitalfiend said:

Sexual harassment is definitely something that needs to be shamed and taken seriously but her physical response didn't really fit the crime. This wasn't a fearing-for-your-life situation and if the roles were reversed - say a drunk woman grab a male server's ass and he threw her to the floor - would the outcome be the same? Unlikely. The guy is a douche bag for sure for what he did and, personally, I think he deserved the toss, but it does raise the question whether a man reacting this way to a woman would see the same positive media attention.

72 Hours Away From A Coup In Which Trump Will Be Decapitated

FlowersInHisHair says...

These assholes talked constantly about removing Obama from office. Their paranoid, homophobic histrionics should be fringe thinking, but people believe them. Perhaps it's that Christianist, rightist compulsion to always portray themselves as the underdog even when "their guy" is in power.

Car pulls out of rest area without looking

FlowersInHisHair says...

It's not a freeway (motorway), it's an A road; they're laid out differently. Laybys like that are really common.

AeroMechanical said:

That rest stop is very poorly designed. An on-ramp onto a freeway should be long enough to give merging traffic enough distance to accelerate to the speed of traffic on the freeway.

Conductor scares two girls who were walking on the tracks

FlowersInHisHair says...

Yes but you have a reason to be on the tracks if you're an engineer. These people are just using the tracks as a footpath, which is really fucking dumb.

cryptoz said:

I fix locomotives, when idling they don't sound much louder then a semi idling so if the wind is in their face and they are talking I doubt they would hear it... If your talking about walking down the track, ya after some time with Loco I now walk beside the tracks and if it's been longer then 2 minutes since the last time I looked over my shoulder, I get mad at myself for being so stupid. Best stay at least 1 arm length from rail or just avoid altogether
