commented on NYT Writes Up Matthew Vines and His Campaign to Get Evangelicals to Stop Being Such Huge Assholes
If you bend the rules of these fictional universes too far, they can break. Like, if I say Darth Vader goes through a time warp and meets Dennis Hastert as a teenager, and that's what makes him turn evil, you'd say that's not believable, because no one thinks Earth and Star Wars occupy the same universe - even though it plainly says "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away." The text means what we believe, even if the words plainly imply otherwise. Revisionism is futile.

Kimmy Scmidt is not a credible explanation - it's so awful I couldn't even watch long enough to get to the Martin Short character. I suspect something else like, I don't know, the soul-numbing effects of a life spent enabling denial and narcissism?

commented on Seattle's Dystopian Present Brought To You By Comcast
