It's a pretty odd rebuttal to cite government authorities as evidence against the assertion government authorities are not being honest with us.

You're right, Tom, we should just blindly accept everything we read on the internet as long as it agrees with us and doesn't come from a government authority.

Tom Brady gave up Gisele Bundchen so he could lead his team to the worst record of his career and back into the playoffs by not being quite as bad as the other teams in his division lol. I wonder if he'll embarrass himself again next year.  :D

Seriously, I was just listening to Kurt Warner sounding extremely puzzled over the fact that a 45 year old quarterback doesn't play as well as he used to, while he was getting embarrassed by the Cowboys. It was like a supreme enigma to him. Nobody ever claimed football players had any brains I guess and I'm sure Warner's taken some hits to his head in his career.

Let Tom play till he's 60. Why not lol

Possibly not. Personally I hope he doesn't win it. The team that has the MVP hasn't won the Superbowl since 1999. It's a cursed award.

FWIW Vegas agrees with you.

Exclaiming that none of the articles have vax status might be hyperbole.

Claiming that you checked the ten articles before and the ten articles after is not. That is a blatant lie of claiming to do something you did not do to try to win your argument.

When all Tom has left is to blather on and on about semantics, you know you got him.

Monday night football postponed due to everyone watching clot shot in action.



It must be entertaining, living in your own little fantasy world.

Avatar:The Way of Water

Say what you will about the first Avatar, it was rarely boring. This one is, for long stretches. And the return of not one but two dead cast members from the first, combined with a story of assimilation into a foreign culture that mirrors that of the first, and I find myself wondering if James Cameron was truly interested in telling a compelling story or just going for fanservice.

It's a very pretty movie, just like the first. The effects are top-notch.

4/10, can really only recommend this to Avatar superfans who will see it (and love it) anyway.

1 in 4 BRITS are now MENTAL cases after the pandemic Jab: They seem to hang out here.

But the article cites COVID itself as the reason for the issue, not the vaccine. Oh well, better luck not undermining your own point next time.  :(

Look, Sean Hannity is renowned for his fair and balanced approach to commentary, and I won't stand for this maligning of such an upstanding newsman any longer!  >o<

But...

If he comments on himself... Is it still fair and balanced?

Like Tom said, he never lied! He just... kinda... um... manipulated the facts to make sure everyone knew a nonexistent controversy... um... existed... so he could make sure his followers knew the truth!

He deserves an award!

And it just gets better and better.

https://www.npr.org/2022/12/22/1144926308/fox-news-sean-hannity-dominion-lawsuit-trump

Long story short: Sean Hannity admits, under oath, that he lied to everyone who watches his show.  Alot.

And they say Fox is trustworthy.  HA!

Where does that article say that he lied?

Is says that he "embraced" it by giving Trump airtime. This is not the same as saying one thing and then saying the opposite.

Critical thinking isn't really your strong suit, huh?

CNN: After Twitter users voted to oust Elon Musk as CEO, he wants to change how polls work.
https://www.cnn.com/2022/12/20/tech/elon-musk-twitter-polls

Summary:
"You know... After people voted to have me leave twitter, I think we should make policy polls votable only by people who pay for twitter."

Democracy Capitalism in action.

Well, Nicolas Cage was cast as Superman.  Mercifully, the project died, but it was a close call.


Yeah, there was a reason the Superman franchise floundered for so long. A lot of misguided ideas during that period.

The behind the scenes saga of the DC Cinematic Universe has been far more entertaining than the movies themselves.

If you don't like it, start your own social network, sweaty.

There is no conflict between recognizing that Musk has the legal right to ban anyone he wants to and also that he's a huge hypocrite for disregarding his previous assertions that only outright illegal speech would be banned.

And yet, Twitter randomly banning people It Doesn't Like wasn't really a problem when Musk wasn't the one doing it. It's only now that it generates headlines on other sites. Musk being a hypocrite is only tangential to the actual problem people are having with Twitter. More importantly, had he not become a hypocrite and Twitter turned into a pool of slurs, people like yourself and Roundy would be crying about it anyway, so what's the point? Either he keeps free speech (and he gets hate for it) or he changes his mind and walks it back (and he gets hate for it).

My only concern is that Musk is falling into the trap of actually caring what people on Twitter think, which is made all the worse by the fact that he owns the website.

Saying that Twitter is now a cesspool was editorializing, for sure. Pointing out Musk's hypocrisy in this matter is a valid criticism that stands on it's own merit. Ideally Twitter probably shouldn't be banning anyone whose posts aren't dangerous or illegal. But saying you're setting out to save free speech and then controlling what people are allowed to say is kinda heinous, and should be called out.

I would like off the meme universe ride now, please. I have had enough.

I like to think Trump browsed the “terrible political memes” thread and was inspired.

I mean he probably believes the Earth is flat, so who knows?

Elon Musk cares very passionately about free speech. Just as long as he agrees with what you say. Another lousy Republican hypocrite. He's made Twitter a cesspool.

I really hope they just start over from scratch, pretend the Snyderverse never happened, it's been a trainwreck from the beginning. I've always been more of a DC fan whetit comes to the comics and I'd like to see a vision for them that's actually true to the comics. Snyder's vision wasn't.

Stillbirths were actually up slightly in 2021. Like, 0.3 out of every 1000. It would be silly to just attribute this to the vaccine, of course, but one way or the other I think humanity will survive.

Maybe the reinforcements from the Andromeda Galaxy will help us overcome the horrors wrought by the vaccine too.
