I’ve always thought Huntress looked like a female Hawkeye from the Marvel universe. Which is kinda hot, as you can see. Via Geeks Are Sexy.

Batman: Dead End

This movie came up in conversation, so I decided to post it once again. Made in 2003 over the course of 4 days, Batman: Dead End served as a sort of resume for the filmmakers involved. It’s pretty decent for a fan-film, and at eight minutes, it is definitely worth the watch.

Food By State

I mostly-agree with this. Chislic is sold elsewhere, but I’ve never found it nearly as abundantly as in my home state of South Dakota. I’m glad SD didn’t get one of the obvious ones, like Nebraska or Texas. Also, I have yet to try (or hear the definition of ) ramps, which is West Virginia’s food. I live about 15 minutes from the border, so I might have to try it out at some point. Click the picture for a better view.

Kent

This was written by a friend of mine named Kent. And to be truthful, I’m mainly posting it because I’m very sleepy at the moment and I can’t keep his words straight. No really. I have my eyes closed right now, laying back on my couch cushion, leting my fingers do the work…and mistype along the way, but who cares, the job is getting done. Sort of. Like hiring cheap contractors to install your new bathtub only to have it leak and taking another week to get someone out to fix the problem. This did not happen to me, but it’s an example of the sorry state of work ethic among today’s plumbing industry. I have no idea what I’m talking about, so here’s something else. By Kent.
…………………………………………………………………….

I’ve been involved in a variety of conversations lately on topics such as religion, evolution/creationism, global warming and politics. If that list doesn’t make it clear enough, those of you who have been in those conversations with me can attest that I certainly enjoy a good argument. However, two things about those conversations began to wear on me. The first was encountering the same forms of argument over and over in different contexts. The second was a tendency to word play masquerading as a significant point, or worse yet, as proof of an idea. In order to take my best shot at resolving both problems I’m going to attempt to build my case from the ground up and open it up to criticism/support from all comers.

If you are tagged in this note, you are particularly invited to join the discussion. I had initially thought to only send this to those that I wanted to explicitly invite, but I see that Notes don’t work that way. Apparently this is an open invitation. So be it. You are free to invite anyone else you would like anyway. Although I may strongly disagree with you (and this is primarily addressed to people who are not on ‘my side’ of these issues,) if I have invited you to this conversation it is because I respect you and care about you. There’s a reason I’m addressing you all and not random anonymous folks on the many internet forums hosting variations on this theme. I think one thing that we can agree on is that it is frustrating to see people you think well of cleave to ideas which you find misguided. I have used the example that if I were to suddenly become enamored of Scientology, I would hope that you would care enough about me to challenge my beliefs. There are folks I have invited where I fear I may be risking a friendship… If you don’t care to participate, whether from a lack of interest or a fear of drama, I won’t be offended in the least.

Since one of my key themes will be that I do not have access to any special or absolute truth, I am going to set this up as a wiki which only I can edit, but anyone can comment on. That way I can continue to build and modify my argument as weaknesses are exposed (and they will be,) but the record of the conversation will be there for all to see without starting all over from scratch. I’m not sure how this will work in practice, if it turns out to be clunky then I will either look at installing some basic forum software or else retreat to just holding the conversation on my blog. There isn’t a great deal of content yet, basically just an intro on the ‘How do we Know’ page and a few brief conversation starters, but if I held off until I felt it was ready then it would never get started. Feedback and criticism will help by giving me a direction and something to sink my rhetorical teeth into. You can read the wiki anonymously, but in order to comment you will have to create an account. Sorry about that, but it’s necessary if I’m to have a hope of A) avoiding a deluge of spam and B) keeping track of the conversation. However, no one will have access to your password and you’re welcome to use a throwaway email and/or a pseudonym if you like.

Here’s to all of us learning something.

Links And Such

Did you ever have a friend sign up for magazine subscription for you? (mildly NSFW).

On Children’s TV in Russia, some women go braless. (mildly NSFW).

Today’s schoolchildren try to guess what old technology was used for. This makes me feel ANCIENT.

Republicans: good at theater, bad at governing. I keep waiting for the rational thought to return to the party as a whole. I was a believer until Bush Jr. choked on a pretzel when I was in basic training, just starting a 4-year stint in the Air Force. That’s when I started to have doubts that the smartest people were in charge. I’m not saying the other guys are much better, but when really smart people back someone like Sarah Palin, something is really, really wrong.

40 Things That Make Old People Very Happy (according to stock photos).

The animatronic Hulk that could have saved the Ang Lee movie of the same name. (Except the effects weren’t the worst part of that flawed, but decent, movie.)

Pixar: The Day Our Bosses Saved Our Jobs. This is an amazing story, and it shows the size of the…guts of those at the top. Amazing.

Imagineer Rolly Crump’s Guided Tour Through Disneyland. (full version is about $5, but a truncated piece is free to listen to at the link, at BoingBoing.)

Finals

I had a professor that did this exact thing. Well, it was more like 2/3 new material, as opposed to 99% as shown in the Venn diagram. I still aced the test, only because I read through the entire book, regardless of whether she actually covered it or not. In other words, I got lucky. Afterwards, I proceeded to give her the WORST recommendations on the after-class survey and about every online college-professor rating site I could find. She was (and is) rotten as a professor, completely disorganized, and I pity anyone that has to have her as a professor. Sadly, she still has a job at my college. After 2 classes with her, I have refused to have her as a professor again.

I, Bacon

This came about as a typing gaffe. I tried (and failed) to type “I Bacon” in a comment on Amy’s Challenge Accepted blog. After her comment, it struck me kind of funny, so I did this picture up using I Can Has Cheeseburger’s? LOLCat builder.
