<Cev> Remember when Salmoneus said that this was probably the most popular and well-remembered song from this movie?
<Legion> Salmoneus is basically Typical Mind Fallacy Man
<Legion> bitten by a radioactive autist, he has all the powers of not realising other people are not him

<Slereah> Why don't they arrest everyone with a weird name in Gotham City
<Slereah> If you are called Strange
<Slereah> Bam
<Slereah> Straight to jail

<pthag> is this like how that thread was changed from 'no sirdanilots' to 'everyone is welcome'
<pthag> which universal love was only made possible by the casting of sirdanilot into thr desert
<pthag> and providing us with a salutary example of how people stop being people when u dont let them in
<Cev> The hungry gods must be appeased.
<Zayk> Hungary has gods?
<CUM_SIURAN> lol not anymore #christianizedMotherfucker

<@vlad> I didn't realize we had more than one species of ibis
<Cev> Why are your birds all gigantic, vlad?
<@vlad> island gigantism?
<Cev> I think Australia might be too big for that
<@vlad> maybe that's also island gigantism

<Slereah> the holocaust would be a whole lot funnier if the gas chamber was just Hitler farting in a tube

<Slereah> It's kinda weird
<Slereah> Marvel movies are all fun and DC movies are all gritty
<Slereah> But on TV it's reversed
<Cev> Yeah I know
<Cev> I'm of the opinion that in both cases gritty is probably better
<Slereah> Well, Daredevil is probably better, yes
<Slereah> Although I think it's just because Flash is handled poorly
<Cev> They also differ in that
<Cev> for DC they're not in canon with each other
<Cev> there's a movie universe and a tv universe
<Cev> Like Superman is in the tv universe but he's not played by Henry Cavill
<Slereah> It would be great tho
<Slereah> If the TV Flash joined the Movie Superman
<Cev> Do you want to see Batfleck fight Gorilla Grodd?
<Slereah> Yes
<Slereah> Yes I do
<Cev> Me too
<Slereah> Do you bleed
<Slereah> gorilla blood
<Slereah> You will

<Radius> With swizzle sticks and thistle sixths with widths this thick, Luther's sleuths thwart Seth's sixth sick sphynx.

<Cev> "The average American is 33 pounds heavier than the average Frenchman"
<Cev> :-[
<Zayk> but like
<Whimemsz> it's not fair, Legion is bringing the French average way down

<Cev> bah
<Legion> Cev the sheep
<Legion> or raher
<Legion> Cev, the angriest sheep in the world
<Legion> I'd watch that
<Legion> it's like about this sheep trying to build a sheep pen
<Legion> but he doesn't have opposable thumbs so he can't
<Legion> so he gets so angry and wants to burn the whole farm down
<Legion> but he still doesn't have opposable hands so he still can't
<Legion> so he wants to genocide the jews but etc
<Legion> the punchline is always lack of opposable thumbs thwarting his attempts
<Legion> also all the other sheep are stupid
<Legion> because they're sheep

<H13> well anyway I'm very susceptible to the sunk cost fallacy so I will keep on doing this
<Slereah> Well I spent so long believing in the sunken cost fallacy
<Slereah> It's bound to be right at some point

<twanh> how old is lyndon johnson

<@Slereah_> I like how in the 19th century people believed in evolution, but like
<@Slereah_> Believed that they came from better monkeys
<@Slereah_> Depending on race
<@Slereah_> The whiteman came from the honest hardworking chimpanzee
<@Slereah_> The chinaman from the mysterious orang outan
<@Slereah_> While the negro came from the savage gorilla
<@Cev> The library has a couple old books about race published in the 1920s
<@Cev> They look like a total hoot but I've always been a little hesitent to check them out
<@Cev> Not sure how well it would go checking "ON THE DEGENERATION OF THE NEGRO AND OTHER PRIMITIVE RACES" out with the librarian
<@Cev> also what if she's a cute librarian? :SSS
<@Slereah_> but what if she's a cute racist librarian

<Slereah_> What are the most recent battles that people reenact
<Slereah_> Is there a Syrian Reenactment Society

<@pthagnar> it would be difficult to tell a ~~~real authentic tr00 neurological positivist scientific face-food-face-corpse effect~~~
<@pthagnar> from a 'somebody has learnt the grammar of film' effect
<Slereah> I wonder how old such analysis goes back
<Slereah> Was there a caveman theorizing on what makes a good oral tradition
<Slereah> "It should involve a lot of Ug being strong"
<Slereah> "The Ug of the story must always win, thanks to his great strength"
<Slereah> "New things must be seen with suspicion, that will be revealed to be correct when they are hit with a club"

<@Slereah> Oh no
<@Slereah> More family drama from the protagonist
<@Slereah> I just want more squid monsters
<@Slereah> Why do people keep making high concept movies if they don't believe people will care about them
<Cevf> Sler: I DON'T KNOW
<@Slereah> I mean
<@Slereah> If you look at a romantic comedy
<@Slereah> Is it ever interrupted by trying to learn squid monster language?
<@Slereah> that is not why we are here

<Cevf> Do people realize that "The Doomsday Clock" isn't a real thing?
<@pthag> no
<Cevf> Like it's not an oracle they consult, the inner workings of which are a divine mystery?
<@pthag> if it's not an oracle
<@pthag> why are oracular priests [scientists] guarding it
<@Slereah> isn't foretelling doom exactly what an oracle does
<@pthag> that would be like thinking the nobel prize is just awarded by a team of strange swedish academicians
<@pthag> rather than god

<Slereah__> how strong are copyright laws
<Slereah__> Is it illegal to narrate a book from memory
<pthagnar> no
<pthagnar> just to record ur narration
<pthagnar> and sell it
<Slereah__> maybe that could be a good venue of work
<Slereah__> A book troubadour
<pthagnar> i do not know if it contravenes copyright law to sell tickets to narrations
<Slereah__> I could also do movies
<Slereah__> La chanson de Star Wars
<Slereah__> I remember a post apocalyptic movie where a group of survivor was doing a Star Wars play
<Slereah__> What movie was it
<Slereah__> that is a benefit of the apocalypse
<Slereah__> no more copyright law
<Slereah__> I could do that Back to the Future greek comedy if I wanted

<@Legion> I remember this tagline from the "Hard-sci movie plots" twitter
<@Legion> "An alien spacecraft collides with Earth at relativistic speed; Earth is instantly destroyed."
<Cevf> I get a feeling lots of these end with "Earth is instantly destroyed"
<Cevf> "Earth is hit with a direct beam from a gamma ray burst; Earth is instantly destroyed"
<Cevf> "The frontier of quantum vacuum collapse approaches at the speed of light; Earth is instantly destroyed"
<@Legion> :)
<@Legion> well the gist of the twitter account was like
<@Legion> taking premises from various sci-fi films
<@Legion> and explain the realistic consequences
<@Legion> in 140 chars
<Cevf> "An ancient kaiju awakens from millennia-long slumber beneath the Pacific ocean. Marine biologists earn their tenure observing it as it transits the seas, eating krill and plankton."
<@Legion> :)
<Cevf> Or, better, "An ancient kaiju awakens from millennia-long slumber and collapses due to allometric scaling laws."
<Cevf> "Nazi archaeologists unearth an ancient Babylonian magical tablet. It describes a haruspical remedy for tooth-ache. The Nazis test the remedy and find it ineffective."
