@bgcarlisle Disco music is great! I bet lots more people would enjoy it if they just listened to it and made up their own mind, instead of listening to society tell them it's not cool to like disco.

(evidence: look how popular "We're Up All Night To Get Lucky" by Daft Punk was. Shhhhhh, don't tell them it's disco, let them enjoy it)

homophobia 

I just randomly remembered a really gross homophobic joke (i will not repeat it) that one of my college professors told, in the mid 90s*. Expecting everybody to laugh, and most of them did. That was just accepted behavior at that time. We've come a long way since then.

(*mid 90s == a time when people were already complaining about "the liberal bias of academia" and "political correctness has gone too far")

Listening to a lot of Knowledge Fight and QAnonAnonymous podcasts since the election, because I'm trying to gauge which direction the insane trump-worshipping conspiracy-theorist right is tipping in. Are they gonna go on murder sprees? Give up on trump and switch to new conspiracy theories? Create a delusional alternate reality where trump is still president? It's both hilarious and terrifying watching the conspiracy theory production teams go into overdrive trying to explain the loss.

mental health, moral philosophy 

@fool I think most evil in the world is done by people who are 100% convinced they're in the right.

Or by people who are just following orders, and it's not their job to think of the consequences.

the classic sociopath type does exist, but they're rare enough that i think they only do a small fraction of the evil

Food 

It's this time of year again! The weather is cold. Time to make nabe ! And oden! I went to Nijiya market for Japanese fall/winter vegetables, fish cake, and locally made tofu! I'm excited.

COVID, - 

two weeks after Thanksgiving is going to be an absolute bloodbath 😟

Argumate tangling with the nostalgebraist autoresponder bot is currently my favorite thing on the whole internet.

(Nostalgebraist autoresponder bot is a GPT-2 algorithm trained on years of tumblr conversations. Argumate is a human who is happy to play along and have pseudo-conversations with the bot.)

argumate.tumblr.com/post/63546

in this thread, the bot is like... negging Argumate and then coming onto him? After accusing him of being "a gamer"?

WTF is this even, I LOLed so hard

I love how every old sci-fi show had its own way of raiding the tv studio's historical costume closet to save on budget.

Doctor Who had it built into the premise that sometimes they go to the past, so they can use all the BBC's Victorian and WW2 costumes

Star Trek from Next Gen on had the Holodeck to accomplish this

But original StarTrek hadn't thought of the Holodeck so they were always making the flimsiest excuses to have 1930s Gangster planet, Ancient Rome planet, Wild West planet...

Hilarious to read all these right wingers freaking out that Joe Biden (Joe Biden, America's most average politician, the guy who served with unremarkable mediocrity for 40 years in the senate and 8 years as vice president -- that Joe Biden!) is about to transform into Stalin, destroy capitalism, take their guns away, repeal the first amendment, etc.

and i'm like guys, barring a miracle in Georgia, Biden is not even going to be able to appoint a cabinet, let alone pass a law.

@fool i just got it this morning. Any tips for fighting Revali when he flies up high and rains nonstop heat seeking bomb arrows?

bucket full of spit. extremely gross. bad. do not open. 

@garfiald I'm very glad you did not grant the actor's wish to drink from the spit bucket. 😱

90s media: we're not allowed to say out loud that characters are gay, but the subtext between these two same-sex individuals is SMOULDERING

2010s media: We Know Canon Gays Are Important To You, so this token character will mention his husband. Right before getting killed by the monster. You're welcome! Please write about us on tumblr, fellow kids.

It's a good thing that TV doesn't have to self-censor as much anymore, but... anybody else feel like A Point Was Missed somewhere along the way?
