Likely that most Egyptian rulers and Roman emperors with a surviving statue were of the same brain type as Musk.

Some for sure, but a few actually accomplished something before and during their reigns and had talent and competence!

I've studied the phenomenon of neo-provincialism in self-isolating online communities but this place takes the fucking cake.

Not sure if Alex Jones qualifies as media, but this thread seems as good a place as any for this I guess. This guy is basically my idea of a real-life Eric Cartman as an adult. What a nutjob. Not sure if it has been posted before as I’m still catching up around here, but I got a kick out of this:

Jackrabbits. I love them…big ears and big back feet. Jackrabbits man…they’re happenin’. – Mick Jones

Cleese, like Lydon, forgets that he signed away rights then complains about things.

RIP John Cleese, you would have loved living past the release date of A Fish Called Wanda.

What finer tribute to any artist, as the years pass, is that people will continue to enjoy your work in spite of what you've become. Who doesn't appreciate hearing, say, a Smiths song they loved as a teen but now take a deep mental sigh before proceeding?

Saw this on another site and felt it worth sharing here: Imagine getting so indoctrinated by far right social media and pundits that you pull off their wet dream violent act against the Pelosi's only to be called Paul Pelosi's gay lover by those same people.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

I've mentioned before the dual existence these people have. Their identity is society's greatest, most persecuted victims. O, the curse of being born a straight white male! And so they harbour fantasies of violent revenge. Gadsden flags and 2nd Amendment, watering the tree of liberty with the blood of tyrants, all that stuff. But when one of their group does carry out the revenge, the victim fantasy is too strong and so the rest call it a false flag or mental illness or something like that—anything but own it. They're fucking babies—occasionally violent ones—but ultimately babies.
