Musing a little bit on the new Doctor Who episode from last night. Spoilers and that but not big ones:

If most of the galaxy is unemployed, and suggested to therefore be very poor, who is buying all the stuff from Kerblam? Realistically in that kind of future, capitalism has cannibalised itself to the point of collapse

Replacing human labour with automation is done in the name of “efficiency” i.e. cost reduction, which is to increase profit. The only point of creating profit is to increase capital for (human) owners. Who exactly is profiting from this as it clearly isn’t anybody present at the complex? 

And more importantly, why haven’t the starving unemployed eaten them yet?

Bugs Bunny could singlehandedly defeat Thanos by dressing up as a TSA agent and setting up a metal detector in the middle of the battlefield saying that all metal objects must be removed if you want to pass on through now stick around for my 2,000 word essay on just how effectively he would convince The Mad Titan to comply

“For shame, doc! Dontcha know we got other folks waiting?”

(Thanos looks behind him and sees dozens of Bugs Bunnies dressed as angry yelling travelers with huge bags of luggage. Thanos rubs his neck guiltily and begins sliding off the gauntlet)

I felt compelled

I don’t think I’ve seen such a finely crafted Looney Toons joke in over two decades. Bravo.

And the best headline of the year goes to….

you guys I found the article and it’s fantastic

they did in-depth interviews with 137 scientists and about 35% of them mentioned Dawkins unprompted, and about 80% of those were apparently just desperate to tell someone how much they hate him

28% of scientists hate Richard Dawkins so much that they just start spouting off about his bullshit unprompted.

Picture frame with foam backing!

Fabric wall hanging

Wire mesh in a picture frame

Wear them in small thematic clusters

Spend half an hour selecting the perfect combination of pins for the theme and another ten minutes arranging them aesthetically.
