Commented on Disney's Frozen Whitewashing Controversy

We have had our share of whitewashing (Dragon Ball Evolution, Last Airbender, 47 Ronin, Jesus, historical Santa) but Frozen isn’t one of them.

I don’t remember the movie never ever stating where they are other than “Cold place in Europe” so they could be in France, Denmark, etc.
And just like Snow White and Cinderella; Frozen is apparently based on Hans Christian Andersen’s “Snow Queen,” which is a Dutch story (so no Sami there).
And based on wikipedia and google images its not like the Sami look that different from generic Europeans (with or without a light tan). Its on the same level as whitewashing a movie about Italians.
And Frozen has black people in it (background princesses in the big party scene)
So this case of whitewashing backlash is fairly dumb.

Commented on Santa Claus is White

Wait a second, Santa was originally born in Turkey. Just like how a certain Emperor of all Mankind was originally “formed” in Turkey.

Its good to know that the Emprah is out there giving present to all the good little believers and using his literally planet shattering Psyker powers to mind fuck all those naughty heretics and Xenos.

Commented on Santa Claus is White

I do it for the conspiracy.
Hey kids, remember, just because you want something to be true doesn’t make it true and literally everyone will lie to your face and bash you for telling the truth.
Plus it is always a fun story as to how you learned Santa isn’t real.

Commented on Who could forget this classic "The Magic School Bus" moment?

Eh, seems about right. You can survive in a outer space for up to 2 minutes if I remember correctly.
You don’t lose much heat since there is nothing for the kinetic vibrations (heat) to move to. The head puffing up due to the lack of air pressure would be devastating (mainly due to blood vessels in your brain exploding) but he should survive 30 seconds in the void.

Commented on The American Controversy

In most English speaking countries they have 7 continents while in Spanish speaking counties we have 6 continent (N and S America are just one continent).

So in English there is no continent called America so when you say “America” it is obvious you are referring to a country rather than a continent otherwise we would specify North/South America. If you were to ask Mr. Wolverine where he was from he would never say “I’m from America” because America isn’t a continent and it doesn’t make any sense. He would “I’m from North America”.

So when speaking in English you have to say America to refer to the USA but when speaking in Spanish you must specify the United States.

Commented on forgottenpirate.png

Why yes I do. Its a generic robo pirate minion from Rayman. Specifically “Rayman Arena” which is the only Rayman game I have played to any degree. I think robo-pirate guy is even on the cover.

Commented on I am not sexist,anti-feminine or whatever...

I always get a laugh out of these troll posts. “I’m not sexist, I just think women are inferior because of their sex.”

The best part is how #2/3/4/5/6 could just as easily be replaced with The Blacks/The Jews/The Irish/Etc and it would be just as ‘correct’.
Also: first programmer ever was a chick.

Commented on Xbox

So the XBone won’t let me lend my friends game discs? I guess I will just have to lend them the entire console.
Oh wait, the IP address will be different and the Kinect will notice a different user and reject her. And my friend can’t even use a photo to trick the Kinect because that thing can measure/memorize your heartbeat and biometrics.
I wouldn’t put it past them at some point in the future.
