In the beginning the Rings of Power were created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

And that’s the shortest version of THAT story you’re likely going to find.

get out your VCR’s it’s time to watch The Prince of Egypt. or you can watch it here.

please don’t watch exodus: gods and kings because it’s icky and racist. you deserve better. you deserve the prince of egypt.

May I also add that The Prince of Egypt’s accuracy has been approved by not only Christianity, but by Judaism and Islam as well! So it’s actually the most accurately told version out there!

lol what are you talking about, Moses wasn’t a peaceful lawful guy.  He ran away from Egypt because he KILLED A GUY and then tried to cover it up.  He hid out in the desert until his foster dad dies and then goes back to Egypt to lay down some wicked threats against his brother and nephew, let his God torture, maim, and murder innocent civilians (and even his own people who either didn’t listen or didn’t hear about the whole lamb’s blood thing) and then encouraged his people to rob the shit out of the Egyptians as they left in the name of back pay, which was an admirable concept, but still kind of shitty. 

And that’s before the whole part in the desert when he got drunk and wandered up a mountain, had a party with God and came back with rules that he promptly broke by throwing a tantrum and cursing his own wife and sister with syphilis. 

In short, Moses was badass and kind of an asshole.

As long as we're giving ERP pro tips, stop imagining that penetrating anyone's cervix is a normal thing in sex, or that anything ever gets shot into their womb. Nobody ever fucks through the cervix; just having it nudged feels like the joy of menstrual cramps. Put down the hentai.

Not to mention itty bitty.  You know how women in labor are screaming?  That’s because they’re pushing a small human through an opening through a hole that started the size of a fingernail and is, at maximum, apple sized.  If you’re putting your dick through there, you’re causing massive hemorrhaging and death.  Yay for you!

No, human excellence.

Let’s talk about set theory! In mathematical logic, we have a subfield called “set theory” where we study how items are collected into groups.
Providing a sort of logical bedrock, set theory informs foundational mathematics and computer science, among other fields, and continues to be a topic of mathematical research.
Sound too esoteric? Okay, you’re familiar with Venn diagrams, right? Venn diagrams are an example of basic set theory.

And you know how all squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares? There we go, more set theory.
So, Black people are group within the larger group humans, i.e. all Black people are humans, BUT not all humans are Black people.
As you can see in the photograph above, Keven Stonewall, the Chicago teen who may cure colon cancer, is Black. Keven Stonewall’s membership in other groups such as humans, Chicagoans and teenagers occurs simultaneously; consider “Chicago teen.”
Why do we say “square” when we could say “rectangle”? Because “square” conveys useful information,
including “rectangle”—as well as a refinement.
When we say Keven Stonewall is an example of Black excellence, we mean Keven Stonewall is an example of Black excellence.


YAAASSS Bitch read ha!!! Let ha know!!!


Yay!  Let’s assume everyone who makes an off-hand comment that still is technically true but doesn’t fit your preconceived notions of racial representation is female and therefore worthy of being called a bitch!  Hooray for discrimination in the name of non-discrimination!

it bothers me that Kansas and Arkansas are not pronounced the same

I’m from the UK and I have been pronouncing Arkansas as Ar-Kansas my whole life

For all my non-american friends, Arkansas is pronounced ark-an-saw

WHAT

WHAT

But the Arkansas River has been and always will be Ar-KANszus no matter which state you’re in

The Moon Guard mods are so amazingly stupid that I’m beginning to think it is some kind of superpower that they have.

A guy necros a thread from 2012. People comment on the necro and report the necro post.

The mods swoop in and delete all the posts discussing the fact it was necro’d while leaving both the original necro bump up and the thread (containing Datocus’s thoughts on McDonalds from 2012) open.

What a bunch of fucking clowns. The mods are clearly Datoci.

Its like another level of wow

This was my report text:  “Necro bad!  Bad necro!  Keel it!  Pew!  Pew!”

First, let me note: I have not read it. I have not even read much ABOUT it other than snippets about it on social media, and I have no interest in the movie.

But I’ve been wondering, why is there so much more outcry about it than other movies where abuse happens and is even glorified? Is it…

Because it’s a specific type of abuse, and it glorifies a specific lifestyle inaccurately.  I guess…I dunno, I’ll try to make a crappy parallel.  You work with greyhounds, you know all about them.  So when someone makes a statement like “Dogs are just vicious, that’s why they need to be muzzled” it annoys you, right?  Because you know it’s not true and you know that you can counter this argument with facts.  Now the same person says “Greyhounds are just vicious, that’s why they need to be muzzled.”  That, I think, would annoy you moreso on a personal level because you know it’s not true and you know that you can counter with SPECIFIC facts.  Now imagine that the person saying it is Cesar Milan and has a large, impressionable audience and people begin repeating facts that the general public has been more or less informed about…and twisting them.  You know he’s wrong but you’re not famous and so…you can’t really do anything except reblog stuff debunking him and tell people over and over again not to listen.

That’s sort of what’s going on.  “facts” are being repeated that just aren’t true, but no one is asking people that KNOW.  They’re referring back to this book that’s full of incorrect information and touting it as a genuine reference.  It’s not healthy.  It’s not good for people.  What makes it worse it that this is reaching a large impressionable audience  (via a blockbuster movie) that will think that this is normal behavior for this lifestyle and either make generalizations about their friends or worse….try the methods in the book out for themselves as is and end up physically and emotionally injured. 

Yeah I think I understand more the outcry.  It’s not so much about “Don’t go see this!” as it is about “this is not accurate or right.”  The better analogy for me is Cesar Millan being touted as a dog trainer and expert.  It makes me livid :p.

Well I thought about saying that specifically, but I thought nah, it’s late and I didn’t want to push all your rage buttons at the same time, lol
