About

I’m a huge fan of That Guy With The Glasses, and regularly keep up on the Nostalgia Critic, Atop the Fourth Wall, Bad Movie Beatdown, Todd in the Shadows, Cinema Snob, and Anime Abandon, plus all of James Rolfe(aka Angry Video Game Nerd)‘s various projects, all of which give me absolutely no room to have a life. I also love math, as you probably already guessed, and would probably do something with that if the internet didn’t already own my mind, body and soul.
Oh, and if you’re wondering where my somewhat negative outlook on the world comes from, well…

(I guess this playlist will have to do for now. Goddamn DMCA takedowns…)

Commented on Stop Liking What I Don't Like

But the problem is that’s kind of like saying “I don’t like films/books/paintings all that much”. It’s a medium, and even generalizing your own opinion to apply to all examples of it is pretty silly.

Brothers and sisters, for guidance on this issue we ought to turn to the Book of the Good Magicians, Chapter 8 Verse 10

Just be real careful about posting that guy’s videos- he’s an Alex Jones crony, as you can tell by the “Info Wars” spot at the end. Though he doesn’t seem to be nearly as extreme, one of his recent videos about Charlie Hebdo had one of the obligatory completely serious “guys, it’s so obviously a hoax” comment showered with upvotes, which is usually a really bad sign.

Commented on Diaper Fetish/Infantilism

I, for one, will actually critique this page instead of bitching about the fact that it exists. What a quaint notion, right?

“Infantilism is a sexual fetish when somebody is aroused by the act of wearing a diaper, seeing somebody wear a diaper or imagining themselves wearing a diaper.”

Via Wikipedia:
Paraphilic infantilism… can be a sexual fetish for some that involves role-playing a regression to an infant-like state.

Psychology Today confirms this as well.

Diaper fetishism is a separate condition that sometimes exists along side pure infantilism in an individual.
Dude, there’s… like… professional articles on this shit. For someone that thinks that this topic just had to be addressed on KYM, you certainly didn’t do the research to back it up.

There’s this guy who writes for Field Gulls that’s British- he’s been a Seahawk fan since the 80s.

Commented on Feminist Ryan Gosling

I’m talking about the average conditions of people across centuries and all civilizations here, and with generally nebulous issues and terminology to boot- no such sources exist, and I would be a fool to claim that there were. I honestly just kind of assumed you would agree with me, since it seems like a fair (though certainly very generalized) assessment of the eras of human history: Equality has trended upward.
Though pages 411 to 463 are not shown in this preview, I gather that the “goals of the women’s movement” as stated in a survey that began in 1970 would be those of second-wave feminism. Separating that from third-wave is key to understanding the public mood, as the typical layman without frequently updated knowledge on the sociopolitical scene would have little reason to believe that feminism has been “updated” since the 70s. It’s probably pretty difficult to even be aware of third-wave feminists, let alone their specific concerns and various actions, without use of lesser-known (by the public at large, at least) internet websites that have a certain current-events skew like KYM. Even among the hard-nosed “critics of feminism”, you’d be hard-pressed to find an enemy of the previous generation’s objectives, though there is certainly no consensus on the rhetoric.

As someone who took an intensive statistics course which included how to properly conduct studies… holy shit. And that came from fucking PhD students?

Commented on Feminist Ryan Gosling

Okay, “hate group” is certainly overselling it. Even among the class of feminism that is worthy of scorn- “modern” as it is often termed, or more technically “third wave”- only a very small minority qualifies for that kind of pejorative term.
But anyhow, to address your previous statement, what caused it is the pattern towards some form of egalitarianism since the formation of the Mesopotamian that can be clearly seen when taking a single broad view of all human history. I think a lot of people get caught in the trap of reverse causation on this issue- the birth of the feminist movement did not create the desire to make the sexes equal, but rather the desire to make the sexes equal inspired and moved forward the original feminist movement. Why are many people rejecting the newest incarnation of this movement? Well, take it with a grain of salt if you wish, but I am of the opinion that, for the first time since the inception of complex social structures, we are under the threat of actually becoming too “progressive”, to the point that if not kept in check may very well damage the protection of our fundamental liberties.

Commented on Snickerway's wall

Ah, “their words”. Therein lies the problem. You see, if we are to believe to some degree the historical accuracy of the part of the New Testament lying between the four traditional Gospels and Revelations, Paul was a man who claimed not only to have been converted due to a literal appearance of the resurrected Christ before him, but also that all the points he made about the new religion in his preaching came from direct divine inspiration. Thus, to accept his side as very valid at all, you simply have to “take his word for it”.
You know who else you’d have to do that for in order to accept them? The folks who wrote those four traditional Gospels! Remember how much contradiction there actually is about what the historical Jesus did/did not say.

You aren’t really serious about the whole Third Commandment shit… right?
If it turns out that you are, then I request you accept the following joke:
“God damn it.”
That is all.

Wasn’t Jesus of Nazareth also someone who lived 2000 years ago and that whose vales may be considered very outdated? Just sayin.
