    [Brazelton] Roe v. Wade

    Huh. Trying to threaten people into not complying with a Judge's orders - would that count as Contempt of Court? According to my googling that's up to 6 months in jail. If the right wants to play hardball on this, everyone else needs to play hardball back.

    Huzzah Huzzah! 75-87

    I'm trying to come up with a way to describe Zorvik's face after Krun compliments the armour. Best I can come up with is "horrifically hilarious".

    Advent Calendars

    Anyone else got themselves an advent calendar this year? If so, post here & tell us all about them - what's behind each door? Pictures? Chocolate? Cheese? Something else? Do you make your own calendars for friends/family? Definitely tell us about them then. I admit I hadn't bothered with...

    [Brazelton] Twitter

    Ah, so we've reached the stage where Musk goes scorched earth to try & shift the blame to someone else when Twitter inevitably collapses, rather than be forced to face his own incompetence. Bets on Twitter making it to 2024?

    "What are you reading?" thread.

    If you want to talk about weird ways literary characters are known in pop-culture, try telling someone who only knows The Jungle Book through the Disney adaptations that Kaa is an ally of Mowgli's in the novel, who helps rescue him from the Bandar-Log. You can almost see their brain blue-screen...

    "What are you reading?" thread.

    Since I recently realised I'd never actually read the original Frankenstein novel. Victor's a self-entitled asshole who to modern eyes would be a lot happier if he'd just admit how much he wants a good hard dicking. The Creature is nothing like the pop-culture version of himself, being...

    Gas Bandit's Political Thread V: The Vampire Likes Bats

    Liz Truss has risen from her lettuce filled grave to opine on the forthcoming US Presidential Election. She thinks Americans need to elect a Republican (which means Trump) because the world needs a US President who is willing to "call out hostile regimes as evil and a threat.” Because we all...

    Is income inequality unjust, and if so, where is the injustice?

    Yes, but I don't see the advantages for the drivers. Guilds don't have collective bargaining rights like unions to demand things like mandatory holiday pay, mandatory sickness pay, hourly pay at or above the minimum wage - all things deliveroo drivers don't currently have, but which would be...

    Is income inequality unjust, and if so, where is the injustice?

    Deliveroo drivers can't join union says UK Supreme Court. The "gig economy" model of pretending your employees are self-employed contractors to strip otherwise mandatory rights from them got a big win in the UK today sadly.

    [TV] The Doctor Who Thread

    Right issues are stopping the BBC from showing it. At the time it was made the Beeb were allowing the Doctor Who scriptwriters to keep the copyright over some elements of what they wrote (which is why the Terry Nation Estate owns the Daleks instead of the BBC) and the son of the writer of the...

    [Brazelton] Twitter

    IBM have pulled their adverts on X (formerly known as succesful) after those ads appears beside posts that weren't even trying to hide their pro-Nazi/Hitler sensibilities. Maybe this time IBM will realise that's now just part of the cost of doing business with Twitter & it's time to permanently...

    Full hard brexit. But at least its red white and blue.

    Right wing lunatic Suella Braverman has been sacked - for a second time - as UK Home Secretary. Not a surprise, she wrote a newspaper article trying to bully the police into banning pro-Palestine marches & even though the PM's Office needs to sign off on all newspaper articles by a cabinet...

    The Generations Thread

    Okay, the Frankenstein's Monster bot might just be my favourite Transformers X-Over figure. I'd say he wears the mold better than the original Impactor toy did. Even his effect part is pretty nifty!

    Video Game News and Miscellany

    On the one hand this seems like something the EU would declare illegal. On the other hand this seems like something the EU would declare illegal...eventually. As in we would have the next Xbox available before they act - if not the one after that. And even then that just solves the problem in...

    I was a bit disappointed with the mention of "her skin-covered body". Up to that point I was getting excited about some possible sexy exposed skeleton action.
