Physics is hard but wokeness is easy.

David

Physics is hard but wokeness is easy.

An easy ‘A’, certainly. Though I suppose that depends on one’s appetite for farce, contrivance, and racial narcissism.

"How would it be if the United States were viewed by the rest of the world as interfering with the elections directly of other countries..."

Oh yes do tell us, how would it be? 🙄

Remember when it was just a Clown Quarter? I seem to recall not too many years ago when some people here expressed confidence that this nonsense would stop once it hit STEM. Bwahahahaha. Notice I used a period instead of an exclamation point there. Yes. I did it on purpose.

Not my usual thing, and not what I expected.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

Conventional wisdom would have it that the "black" in black holes has nothing to do with race.

Black, adj.: Being of the color black, producing or reflecting comparatively little light and having no predominant hue. adj. Having little or no light.

Golly. It would seem "conventional wisdom" is an odd way to spell "fact".

Yes. I think that's the link where some asshole in the comments said some somewhat prescient things. Though he wasn't quite as much of an asshole back then.

Trudeau and friends are on tear, passing Bill C-10 and threatening to bring back the Section 13 hate speech provision that Mark Steyn and Ezra Levant (amongst others) helped defeat almost a decade ago. It's unclear whether the Conservative Party of Canada is the solution to this problem, however (a problem across the Anglosphere).

Huh.
I always visualize such tales of whoa (Contemporary Black Studies) as an Earth, Wind, and Fire album cover.

What, you ask, is an "album"?

My lawn, offa'it.

Karl

melancholy ghost stories

Yes, it was truly excellent. You might also like the first, and possibly the second entry of American Horror Stories.

You can stop there though. It goes downhill dramatically after that. Much like the second haunting of Bly Manor. Apparently.

APL

"It's unclear whether the Conservative Party of Canada is the solution to this problem"

Not a chance David. The Conservative Party of Canada is way too concerned about media optics, polls, or newspaper opinions than conserving anything. At this point the only difference between the 2 groups is that the Liberals favour red ties, and the Conservatives favour blue ones. Any dissent is ruthlessly crushed out by party leaders.

Sagging? You need to stuff another stack in there before heading to your whip.

So on seeing a twatter titled Is Subway selling real tuna? I felt compelled to find out.
Unsure as I was about whether it was going to condemn Subway for selling tuna because tunas are trans and cute, or denounce Subway for not selling tuna because tunas are sustainable, or some completely unexpected concocted outrage.

Well, it links to a New York Times article called "The Big Tuna Sandwich Mystery" ["All the News That's Fit to Print" indeed - plus rather more shit like this] which follows the following structure:

Clever Title
- 262 words explaining to moronic NYT subscribers what tuna is and what Subway is.
Tuna, in the Abstract
- 639 words copy and pasted from better articles describing in more detail what tuna is and what Subway is.
From the Sea to Your Submarine
- 742 words explaining what fishing is.
Sandwich Artists Weigh In
- 392 words explaining what a sandwich is.
The Lab Results
- "...we cannot identify the species."
- 480 words outlining why the non-existent lab results do not in any way diminish the value of this article

I read it so you don't have to!
Long story short: I didn't find out. 😢

Farnsworth M Muldoon

Sagging?

Sagging is a manner of wearing trousers or jeans that sag so that the top of the trousers or jeans is significantly below the waist, sometimes revealing much of the wearer's underpants.

Be around your knees with a Desert Eagle. OTOH, that might start a new trend.

Meanwhile, as we were speaking of understanding of blackness things, I was wondering if anyone can translate this.

David

I was wondering if anyone can translate this.

One more time.

Karl

Alas no. I'm ashamed to admit that I don't even know what a "non-black latinxs" might be.

However, I can report that although the phrase "afrodescendant communities" gets almost 5000 results (who knew!), there are only 4 hits for "predominantly afrodescendant communities". Which must tell us something?
Unfortunately again I don't know precisely what a "Frodo" descendant is, but we can say for sure that there aren't nearly as many "predominant" ones.

Farnswotyh M Muldoon

One more time.

Yes, but that doesn't address the underlined bits or "Latinxs".

The plural of Latinx would be Latinx, you know, like sheep, or moose.

Hmm. I thought one of the other hobbitses was married off.

Daniel Ream

we’re about halfway through this and so far, it ain’t bad

Sadly, it does not end....well, not that it doesn't end well as much as the last episode appears to have been written by a completely different writing crew who were under the impression they were writing a Very Special Episode of something rather than a psychologically disturbing gothic horror story. The tone shift is a bit perplexing.

I will say the blatantly obvious attempt to ape WestWorld, down to the opening credits, amused me greatly. Your Netflix dollars at work.

second haunting of Bly Manor

Bly Manor is a gothic romance rather than a gothic horror story. It failed to hold my attention because of it, but it seemed competently done.

Castorama

http://www.amnation.com/vfr/archives/022187.html

So there you have it. One of the greatest achievements in history, the first manned flight to the moon, and the most prestigious black civil rights organization, the SCLC, wanted it not to take place, because they thought the money it cost could be better spent on transfer payments to blacks.

And that is all that blacks as an organized community have to contribute to our civilization: endless complaints about white injustice to blacks, and endless demands for the wealth and goods that white people have produced, and that blacks are incapable of producing. Plus a third “contribution” not brought out in this incident: endless threats of violence and riots if the blacks don’t get their way.

The black blackmail and dragging down of white civilization will continue, until whites stand up, name it for what it is, and say, “No more.”

But since there is zero indication that whites will do that in any foreseeable future (to the contrary, as we can see in the George Zimmerman affair, whites, including many “conservatives,” are becoming more, not less attuned to the worldview of “Black-Run America”), the black blackmail and dragging down of our civilization will continue and intensify, until the civilization is ruined.

Inflation.

Sam

black blackmail

While this is certainly true of high-profile grifters and lowlife layabouts alike, the most common usage of of the black victimization narrative is for good-thinker Huwhites to attack bad-thinker Ytes. "Black Bodies" wielded as the cudgel of corporate communism, as it were.

I mean, just imagine for a moment the money riding on continued racial disharmony, as well as the sheer quantity of people for whom even a modest improvement in western cultural confidence would mean unemployment.

Karl

Bly Manor is a gothic romance rather than a gothic horror story

That may be so. Unfortunately it's not called The Passion of Bly Manor. It's called The Haunting of Bly Manor. As such I expect at least competent ghosts.

A strange hybrid of Hobbit and Elf, Hobbit and Dwarf, Hobbit and human, and so on. A strange, disturbing history which for some reason involves strawberry scented bath soap.

"Whitey's on the Moon"

Richard

Richard Landes argued convincingly, in Heaven on Earth, that lunatics like critical race theorists only tske in terms of power to enfocrce their millenarian dreams when the authorities are converted or replaced by the new faith.
Conservative parties the world over are bad at resisting the lunatics because establishment conservatives are afraid of appearing no longer be respectable. This is because conservatives are too often group animals and don't have the tools (or spine) to stand up to the shrieking.

"Do you like what you doth see . . . ?" said the voluptuous elf-maiden
as she provocatively parted the folds of her robe to reveal the rounded,
shadowy glories within. Frito's throat was dry, though his head reeled with
desire and ale.
She slipped off the flimsy garment and strode toward the fascinated
boggie unashamed of her nakedness. She ran a perfect hand along his hairy
toes, and he helplessly watched them curl with the fierce insistent wanting of
her.
"Let me make thee more comfortable," she whispered hoarsely, fiddling
with the clasps of his jerkin, loosening his sword belt with a laugh. "Touch
me, oh _touch me_," she crooned.
Frito's hand, as though of its own will, reached out and traced the
delicate swelling of her elf-breast, while the other slowly crept around her
tiny, flawless waist, crushing her to his barrel chest.
"Toes, I _love_ hairy toes," she moaned, forcing him down on the
silvered carpet. Her tiny, pink toes caressed the luxuriant fur of his instep
while Frito's nose sought out the warmth of her precious elf-navel.
"But I'm so small and hairy, and . . . and you're so _beautiful_," Frito
whimpered, slipping clumsily out of his crossed garters.
The elf-maiden said nothing, but only sighed deep in her throat and held
him more firmly to her faunlike body. "There is one thing you must do for me
first," she whispered into one tufted ear.
"Anything," sobbed Frito, growing frantic with his need. "Anything!"
She closed her eyes and then opened them to the ceiling. "The Ring," she
said. "I must have your Ring."
Frito's whole body tensed. "Oh no," he cried, "not that! Anything but .
. . that."
"I must have it," she said both tenderly and fiercely. "I must have the
_Ring!_"
Frito's eyes blurred with tears and confusion. "I can't," he said. "I
mustn't!"
But he knew resolve was no longer strong in him. Slowly, the elf-
maiden's hand inched toward the chain in his vest pocket, closer and closer it
came to the Ring Frito had guarded so faithfully

Pervy hobbit fanciers not welcome.

That reminds me of an old text-based computer game I used to play. There was an old lady you could randomly encounter in the village who had a covered basket full of kittens that, for a bit of coin, you could examine. Sometimes you'd reach in and get a tabby or calico or something, and there would be some benefit from that. But sometimes she'd slap your hand away and call you a pervy kitten fancier, and that would be like a mild curse that wore off after a bit.

Now I wonder where that phrase "pervy --- fancier" comes from. It's gotta be some pop cultural reference I'm not getting. Monty Python, perhaps?

pst314

Now I wonder where that phrase "pervy --- fancier" comes from.

I have no idea. The Very Secret Diaries usage is the only one I am familiar with, and it is more recent than your old text-based computer game.

It's gotta be some pop cultural reference I'm not getting.

Not necessarily. After all, someone had to be the first to coin the phrase.

I actually believe there is a link, at least metaphorically, between black holes and race:

There is a monetary "event horizon". On one side is barely productive economic activity where significant amounts of cash are spent on frivolous, useless, and disposable things. On the other side all of the cash is gone, destroyed by vandalism, fraud, theft, and death.

Unlike most common laboratory rodents, hamsters tend to defecate and urinate in one corner of the cage and, because they are desert-adapted animals, hamsters produce relatively scant amounts of urine.

My own background is in the "hard sciences" and although it's self-evident to say so these are extremely dangerous/sinister developments in our culture.

We, collectively, must stress to those leading us down this road that when the great correction occurs (as it must at some point) that they pretty much begged for the results. Robespierre would agree I'm sure.

Not entirely unrelated, when space exploration is viewed through a “lens” of identitarian monomania. (Or, when a “diverse group of thought leaders” - all far-left, inevitably - share their thoughts on the need for deaf and disabled astronauts, before pondering whether a mission to Mars would benefit Black Lives Matter.)

The question at the end of the video, around 20:40, and the subsequent awkward silence, is, I think, rather telling.

Sun Ra....

I once persuaded Mrs. Oik to accompany me to a concert by the then extremely ancient Mr. Ra and his “Arkestra” at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. We were treated to approximately ninety minutes’worth of atonal free improvisation by a bunch of elderly, mainly white, hippies.

The encore featured an actual tune in the form of “Rocket #9” which I think was the only thing he ever did which was vaguely popular.

It took me nearly three decades to persuade her to go to a gig with me again (Van Morrison, who was also rubbish but for very different reasons).

“It’s clear that she didn’t feel respected enough or have enough trust in her peers and her colleagues to speak out about this in person,” says Wright...
“I think this is a really great opportunity to open a dialogue into making Mount Allison a more accepting space for everybody to voice their opinions, but also feel safe.”

[The Black Students' Union's] demands are the following:

Not quite that far in yet. Which reminds me, the series also feels quite long, but in a good way. I was briefly convinced we must have watched more episodes than we have, but it’s just that there’s a lot of story and characterisation, so it feels quite substantial. There’s plenty in each episode.

I was briefly convinced we must have watched more episodes than we have, but it’s just that there’s a lot of story and characterisation, so it feels quite substantial

I had a different reaction - I felt, repeatedly, that there was a great deal more to the show that had been cut out. The origin of many of the spirits haunting the place is given and then seemingly forgotten; there are a lot of Chekhov's Guns flying around. The show bears no connection to the book save the title, and left me feeling like there were actually two shows here - a gothic horror story about a family living in a haunted house, and a psychological study about a family dealing with a genetic predilection for mental illness - that were smashed together not entirely seamlessly (note to the writers - if the former is supposed to be a allegory for the latter, maybe don't have one of your main characters explicitly state the allegory.)

And then there's the last episode, where the house suddenly goes from malevolent, unpredictable supernatural entity to a kind of Sufficiently Advanced Technology TARDIS with consistent rules that can be exploited to the benefit of the main characters.

On that note, I'm rewatching Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, which also has nothing whatsoever to do with the book, and is a wonderful deconstruction of Doctor Who. Since the original book was adapted from an unused Doctor Who script, this seems apropos.

David

The show bears no connection to the book save the title,

I haven’t read the novel, but I vaguely recall seeing the 60s film adaptation, with which this series doesn’t seem to have much in common, beyond some of the names, now attached to entirely different characters, and the stairs.

Two thirds of Canadians did not vote for Trudeau and his merry band of Liberals. The vagaries of a multi-party, parliamentary democracy that uses first past the post to elect MPs in a country with polarized regional differences can lead to this result.

Not only did Trudeau's party only receive a third of the votes, his party didn't even receive the most votes of all the parties. The Conservative Party received a couple of points more in the popular vote but elected fewer members to Parliament. Unfortunately, once in office a Prime Minister has more power and fewer restrictions than a US president and we have no means to stop him other than parliament which he controls.
