    Hot brown, cool white, hot brown, cool white, hot brown, cool white, hot brown, cool white, alliteration to classical literature in relation to the ratios of valves per cylinder.
  4. This is about as useful a task as figuring out where on a scale of 100 to place an office pen. Just go and, I dunno, figure out how to calibrate carburetor with the effort you're willing to expend on IMAGINARY THINGS.

    The movie didn't get nominated.

    Last I checked the movie didn't have any big-name actors who are the Oscar's favorites (the Academy's own), nor deal with a story that the Academy likes (themselves, or business). It was also, by all accounts, a pretty mediocre film; but so too does Boss Baby but at least Boss Baby had at least one of the two or more qualities that makes an Oscar nomination or award far more likely. In the end, realize it's Spectacle of the highest order and free yourself from this dead media of living dead images.

      Unfortunately for Fukuyama, the collapse of Stalinism was not the end of history.  The collapse of that rotten socio-economic system will inevitably be followed by a global crisis of capitalism.  Nothing is left of that "New Economic Paradigm" nonsense bourgeois economists were parroting back in the early 1990's.

      We're going to keep swinging at this again and again and again. What I find funny is that I guess is that he calls himself a Hegelian but forgot some keypoints about Hegelianism. Namely what I'm thinking about is dialectics as cause and effect and that the negation of an idea is simply a negation of the idea at that time, but it may come back as soon as it finds a new notion (if I read Science of Reason right, or however it's titled. But Hegel's prose is like deleting reading.exe).

       

      I mean, shit. If you want to go off of end of history in the Marxist sense it's only what he viewed as pre-history. Everything after will be born of new material conditions created by communism as a state of human existence.

       

      So now it can't be described as being an end of one stage and of another in that sense since the material conditions haven't changed, if anything it might be argued it's going back. But, whatever; let it because then it can only revert when we realize a mistake has been made and then we make all the automation property of all men and not a single.

    What Are You Playing Right Now and Progress

    Second playthrough of Witcher 3, actually partaking in the DLC, since last time I didn't have it. Doing side-quests in Toussaint and being very sad I do not live somewhere like it. Hitting Hanse bases is fucking great though.

    Fuck the hackers

    I don't think Hasbro cares or is really trying. They're internet security has proven to be pretty god awful, and they have no intention of updating it. Until they do, Slavbro will forever be able to get da bige scoop. Best not complain, it's all part of Mr Bones' Wild Ride.

  16. I find it amazing people who can call themselves a fan of a show whose thematic emphasis is on having healthy relationships with people across all walks of life and to commit to a sort of mutual assistance towards one another and the promotion of positive interpersonal relations can attract people who believe in slavery or the supposed inherent genetic superiority of one group of individuals over another. Do they realize the cosmic irony that is their existence, or are they just here for the literal porn? Or perhaps they're here deluded by the spectacle of image, and not of thought?

      The behavior of such people is explained extraordinarily well by the Dunning-Kruger Effect.
