Comment EA is a distraction against what we truly hate. (Score 1) 346

"We don't know it, but we're doing it". Like how much of anti-semitism is actually a hatred of capital, hatred of EA is that same hatred of capital. If you hate EA, you likely hate the entire system, but have been conditioned in favor of the system because of the band-aids holding it together make it appear better than all other options.

Comment Re:Nintendo needs to rethink its place in the worl (Score -1, Troll) 403

Sure, if you want to be within 25 feet of the Wii U box and you're too poor to have more than one TV in the house. The gamepad only way was definitely designed for poor people or people who didn't want their kids wandering off with a DS. Since you can't even leave the room without it cutting out, it's a failure.

Comment I don't get what people see in the new Doc combo. (Score 1) 423

I've been a fan since the series has been restarted up and this Doctor is by far the worst. Karen is clearly the worst Who girl while being one of the cutest in a girl next door way. The fact that they had to take a year off sort of reinforces my thoughts. They were simply out of material and quality writing and had to brainstorm. The acting, scripts, and delivery of the scripts has been off the charts cheesy. Yes, i realize this is a kids show but it's just been sorely lacking. I think we saw the end of the downfall with the last few episodes of the previous season. They just seem to be a ^C^V^ amalgamation of other stories we've seen a thousand times.

Comment Anyone who speaks truth will sound a bit crazy. (Score 2, Insightful) 549

"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident." Arthur Schopenhauer (1788 - 1860) "Concision means you have to be able to say things between two commercials. Now that’s a structural property of our media—a very important structural property which imposes conformism in a very deep way, because if you have to meet the condition of concision, you can only either repeat conventional platitudes or else sound like you are from Neptune That is, if you say anything that’s not conventional, it’s going to sound very strange." -- Noam Chomsky
