"That’s my fighting style."
Welcome to the Decepticons, Weirdwolf! Hope you survive the… awkward face poking?(I’ve been rewatching the Transformers: Headmasters show—the Japanese continuation of the original Transformers cartoon. It can get a little… weird.)
Hyperbolic geek website headlines I’ve been seeing shared for months:
12th Doctor to be dark and serious! No more silly flirting!
Stumbles out of TARDIS, immediately flirts with dinosaur.
From an article I kept seeing people sharing on Facebook a while back, criticizing Darren Aronofsky’s film Noah from an extreme fundamentalist Christian viewpoint.
(Several commenters on the page point out that there are thousands of species of modern snakes, but the replies don’t seem to show any comprehension of the significance of that fact.)
Utopia - Series 2, Episode 2
Love this show. Oh, the colors… It’s a crying shame there’s still no authorized way to watch it in the US, as far as I’m aware.
Paranoid anti-immigrant activists spy on churches in Rankin County, Mississippi, looking for signs of foreign refugees they think are being hidden there!
Part 2 of this ridiculous saga! (See part 1 here.)
The amateur detectives of the Mississippi Internet Border Patrol were at it again on the night of Friday, July 18. Having failed to find any sign of the buses full of immigrants they believed the Governor was allowing to be hidden around here on the previous night, it looks like they got a hot tip that the buses would be arriving Friday at midnight! They staked out government buildings and churches in the Crossgates subdivision of Brandon, Ms, took photos of “suspicious” vehicles, and waited to confront and protest the buses’ arrival! And… nothing happened, of course.
I somehow doubt that they have given up tilting at this particular windmill, so I’ll keep looking out for further tales of this bunch’s exciting adventures…
Anti-immigrant hysteria in Rankin County, Mississippi!
So this happened. Apparently some people around my hometown are convinced that Obama (with the help of a traitorous Governor Bryant) has sent some of those buses full of scary immigrants to be sheltered around here. (My looking into their stories could only turn up a bunch of dubious rumors, third-hand stories, and speculation being spread around Facebook and Twitter as the source of it all.)
With the idea in their heads that there are buses full of immigrants hiding somewhere in the area, these people went out looking for them on Thursday, July 17. They actually drove all around town in the middle of the night, snooping around and peeking into the windows of schools, churches, government buildings, and various public venues, looking for signs of this supposed secret invasion of foreign refugees.
Oh, and this is just part one. Stay tuned for more…
