A commenter at Ace’s site left a really interesting short essay about the film Land of the Dead – it’s in this post under the heading “DRI’s Review of the Last Awful Romero Picture”. Check it out!
Great review. Very insightful… and true!
Last week you were calling the movie “Apocalypto” a “historic document” and telling us it contained deep insights about illegal immigration. This week you tell us that a bad horror movie has important things to tell us about “leftist ideology,” like, I suppose, that liberals are not concerned enough about the growing zombie menace. I can’t wait until next week when you will reveal what “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes” teaches us about the evils of gay marriage.
I’ll get to work on that right away.
Gay marriage, hmmm. No, that’s probably Poltergeist.
Gay marraige would be the bride of Frankenstein, in that we really have no idea as to the sex of those donated parts used to make up the bride.
I was thinking Mulan.
Frost: Hey, I sure wouldn’t mind getting some more of that Arcturian poontang! Remember that time?
Spunkmeyer: Yeah, Frost, but the one you had was MALE.
Frost: It don’t matter when it’s Arcturian, baby!
To set the record straight (pun intended) it was the original “The Thing”. Remember the little asparagus babies it grew in the lab?
Aliens, as a movie, rocks too much for such a roll. Something far lamer would be more apropos, like that smug fat loser in ‘An Inconvenient Truth’, what’s his name?
Wasn’t his name “Bore”?
“smug fat loser”
no, you’re thinking of Limbaugh
“no, you’re thinking of Limbaugh”
Which one? The cheese or the guy that flew solo to France?
How about the .500 Limbaugh? That’s a pretty fat round.
ACTivist – Don’t insult the Limburger cheese by comparing it to Limbaugh. He might smell like Limburger, but I know Limburger, and Limbaugh is no Limburger.
Act and Marshmallow are to different entities. So what are you reading?
We have our choices, you have yours. Ain’t diversity grand?
no, it is an objective, empirical Fact, which is verifiable through observations which can be replicated; Rush Limbaugh is smugger and fatter than Al Gore. That’s the Truth, as it is told in the Epistles of Apostle Paul.
I guess we could put both of them on a scale and see which is the fatter. A objective observation. As for smugger … that is subjective. OR! Have you oh great PAK one, invented the smug-o-meter? Say it is so oh great smore.
Which epistle? 2 Fred, or was it Californians?
Truth is a relative term. YOUR truth may not be MY truth (which it isn’t) or the REAL truth (which, again, it isn’t). Smugness is on your side of the fence on this one. As far as who is the bigger blimp, that is a barroom wager as far as I’m concerned.
I found this particular article interesting. Hopefully you will, too.
Quite a compelling piece of scientific research!
How did you find that article on Sanity?, zimzo and the smore? They’ll deny it just as they deny homosexuality is a disease. Two things for sure. One-they will try to find a cure for both. Two-I’m going to hear about this one from the nitwits.
I’ve never recieved an answer from anyone regarding homosexuality. After they strained to prove it was genetic coding….And I do mean strained….They never explained how it differed from cancer, and how we seek to eradicate cancer because it’s bad, and by that very train of thought, we would have the ability to eradicate homosexuality as well.
They wanted to bring about the cutting news that it was all genes, but also did not want to bring the otherside of the sword into discussions.
great article. BTW about 4 years ago that showed Conservatives were suffering from a disorder for being conservatives. still a great article.
As for that whole homosexuality thing, as with any sacred cow one cannot apply logic. Homosexual behavior has been shown to vary with environment. Prison is an excellent example of such variance. As Ritchard Prior put it “they [the convicts] don’t do that to you because you might like it, they do it just to see that look on your face”
rats, correction for above – ago [there was an article] that -
That’s an interesting angle, and politically incorrect enough that I think we can say 10 ft fits right in here.
Violence, addiction, depression and such have variously been explained as having possible genetic origins – but even if that were proven we can be certain efforts would continue to modify the behavior.
This probably deserves to be a new post at some point – the discussion would stand on its own.
10 toes is not pc, the article is a howler.
Mans behavior is a blend of nature and nurture. We all are born with very basic compunctions. The desire for air, water, food, comfort, power and sex are innate to everyone. How this is expressed varies a lot after one gets past air.
I can’t get past the desire for air. Am I missing out on anything important? If I am, is there a cure for me?
gay marriage is the imitation of normal life at the expence of mental and moral health of the children
