Oh my gods, Sports Ball! The piggers are playing the weasels....passing the ball and doing stuff while the fans mindlessly react like they're at a political rally....piggers #1 FUCK THE WEASELS!!!
Nov 17, 2016 Theoretical commented on The Morning News: 8 Percent of Seattle Voted for Trump, Republican State Senator Seeks Law That Punishes Anti-Trump Protesters.
Here's a cool fact: the Seattle Times article, whining about the "hidden Trump voter", lists the percentage of people who voted for Clinton at 87%. If that holds it's more than San Francisco, which is at 85.5%…
May 13, 2012 Theoretical commented on "The Godzilla of Public Art" in London.
It looks like someone tried to realize Vladmiir Tatlin's "Monument to the Third International" in reality, but then something went wrong and it started to overflow.
May 8, 2012 Theoretical commented on What's He Building in There?.
It's a good sentiment, but I Can Haz Cheezburger has profited as a parasite on internet culture, appropriating memes that originate elsewhere and repackaging and putting them back out there, with ad space, and watermarked branding.
May 8, 2012 Theoretical commented on The Selfish Gene Goes to War.
Sociobiology is similar to the discipline of evolutionary psychology in trying to explain human culture by putative evolutionary events....rather than by culture, history, and individual human interaction itself. The idea of trying to picture how we behave now by inventing fictional cave men and women who existed in a time long long ago is a farce if you look at what sociology brings to the table. However, sociology doesn't have the pseudo-scientific appeal of sociobiology, meaning that it's less sexy. I suspect that in the future there'll be a book like Stephen J. Gould's "Mismeasure of Man" about the Sociobiologists.
May 8, 2012 Theoretical commented on Capitalism Doesn't Need Democracy.
While there might be different models of capitalism, China brings up an interesting point: is the tendency behind the all to go towards a neo-liberal end, with the force of civil society holding them back from this and forcing them into ways of operating like welfare state capitalism, or is capitalism capable of absorbing corporativist thought and reinventing itself as a managed dictatorship in order to create a more stable mode of production?

...yet the people who defaced property in the Boston Tea Party are looked on as heros, not as cowards.
Apr 18, 2012 Theoretical commented on Laughing at Racism.
Umm..."Western" culture was not founded on racism, American culture was. Racism did not really exist before colonialism and Europe's attempt to commercially dominate the world.
Apr 5, 2012 Theoretical commented on I Am Indifferent to Cats.
The Japanese love cats in cafes, but Americans would indeed go for something more like a Bro-fe, with arm wrestling competitions, fake tanning cubicles, sports, vodka red bulls, and plenty of awesome tribal tattoos.
Mar 31, 2012 Theoretical commented on The Funk Megan Seling Challenge: Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is.
I can't read Megan Selling's mind, but my impression when I read the reference was that it might have more to do with white funk artists who have listened to lots of George Clinton, but not necessarily much else, smoke lots of weed, play mediocre music in their bands.
