The Friend Zone

Posted on

The big debate: Is being “friend-zoned” even a thing? It’s been getting more and more heated with time, getting to the point where an off-handed remark between (usually) men is taken as meaning the one making it is a complete desperate loser.  Yes, this is about the evil term “friend-zone”, defined by worthless guys who […]

Taxes Only Hurt the Rich?

Posted on

Let’s be clear here: Some taxes are only going to hit the wealthiest among us. Things like estate taxes and investment taxes pretty much only do hit the rich, because only the rich have these things. We’re not talking the “1%” here either. We’re talking middle-class up, who all, to the lower-class, would seem pretty […]

Photo Dump

Posted on

These have all been edited at least a bit. I did a little adjustment on most of them to bring out the actual natural colors. Many are in 1080p, while some are adjusted for a 16:10 monitor instead. It would only take a little cropping to get them to 1080p, so feel free if you […]

Flat Earth: Debunked. Part 1: God’s Rays

Posted on

The Flat Earth “theory”. It’s taken up a mighty resurgence in the past few years, and it needs to be addressed, because it is filled with awful science and terrible refutations. It also relies heavily on inane conspiracy theories, and simply doesn’t work due to our understanding of physics.  From the question of how gravity […]

It’s All Been Done Before

Posted on

Remember that scene in Star Wars where the stormtrooper flies down with a rebel pilot, whips off his uniform and marches into Mos Eisley, where Luke lived and traded scrap parts for food rations, then joined him on a crazy adventure, stealing a ship from Jabba as the Empire started bombing Tattooine? Then he and […]

What About the Bothans?!

Posted on

Note: This is a bit of an experiment. If you want to see the spoilers, please hover over the black boxes, like on SCP and Reddit. In 2012, Disney acquired the rights to LucasArts, and thus almost all of the Star Wars franchise. I say almost because there’s actually a good explanation as to why they […]

Hyperspace is not “Faster” Than Light

Posted on

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… George Lucas envisioned a fantasy movie that incorporated everything from Flash Gordon and World War II footage to Errol Flynn swashbuckling and nuclear panic. As an idea man, Lucas was brilliant. Despite his scripts being rewritten multiple times to make them less… idiotic, he still […]

In Defense of Rey

Posted on

We’ve all seen Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens by now, right? Of course we have. If you haven’t, you probably should, even if you don’t want to, just to get it over with. So, what’d you think? Meh? Kinda okay? Not the best, but compared to the prequels it was pretty good, right? Well, […]

Dear Netflix People

Posted on

Hi there! It’s me. Another white, cishet man here to tear down something that the people of color finally get a foot into! Well, okay, not exactly. In fact, I’m all for appropriate diverse casting. I’ll touch on this in general briefly, and probably write something up about the broader topic in another post, but […]
