I am never going back to splish splash water park ever again a day in my life. Ever.

I still think the best Tenchi Muyo series is Tenchi Muyo Universe... Tenchi in Tokyo was okay too... The others are too convoluted and not very funny, IMO.

I got curious about Susei no Gargantia... But I'm not a fan of series about giant robots... So I lost interest. :/

A man who doesn't love giant robots is never a whole man.

Nope. I know the Mark IV is better in every technical spec, but the Silver Centurion (Mark V) is much much cooler.

A couple of honest questions here...

What does wanting to stop illegal (and that is THE key term here), illegal immigration have to do with racism?

In addition to the many excellent points raised by others, there is the fact that US immigration law is, in and of itself, inherently racist....

Props, Citizen Dunkerson, for bringing up the Chinese Exclusion Act, whose predecessors were pushed by the Workingman's Party of California, thus illustrating how important those anarchists in the IWW were a few decades later and their policy of multiracial class solidarity.

Anyway, I only recently, within the past year or so, came across the work of Aviva Chomsky (yes, Noam's daughter).

My good friend and comrade, the Nigerian Princess read, or taught I don't recall, her book, Undocumented: How Immigration Became Illegal and raved about it for months. I, alas, haven't read it, but I did have the opportunity to see Professor Chomsky on Democracy Now! and was mightily impressed.

"How Immigration Became Illegal": Aviva Chomsky on U.S. Exploitation of Migrant Workers

As I recall, and I may not, in the 1960s there were large amounts of racially defined second class- or non-citizens in this country. We all know how the Civil Rights Movement made the United States dress up its race relations in term of black and white, but Prof. Chomsky argues that around the same time, the government changed the status of the Mexican migrant workers from racially-barred from citizenship as "Mexicans" (which, of course, isn't a race) to "immigrants" and thus to "illegal immigrants."

I remember it being a fun watch.

Anecdotally, my girlfriend, known to the boards as La Principessa, is married to a previously-undocumented Irishman. They lived in a section of Brooklyn called Windsor Terrace and, apparently, many times, she would run into neighbors going on racist...

BROOKLYN BROOKLYN BROOKLYN BROOKLYN

That reminds me, I totally have to steal her from you...

No opinion on Batman vs Superman?

I didn't enjoy it. There were good moments, but overall it was a joyless slog for me. I liked the other superhero movie offerings this year better than BvS.

Opinions vary wildly on the movie, though, and I've heard that the extended cut in the movie helps explain things better, or at least build up revelations better.

If you liked Man of Steel, you will like this movie.

I've never seen Man of Steel, I am however, a life long Batman fan, the problem is, the movies, outside of the Dark Knight series, are all over the place as far as quality. So I'm a bit more hesitant to blindly buy it like I did for Ant-Man and Dead Pool, which are both, my favorite super hero movies. :-)

Well, the Batman-focused scenes were the best parts of the movie, for what it's worth.

BvS is on the opposite end of the "fun" spectrum from Ant-Man and Deadpool, though. ;)

interesting, as I loved both man of steel and ant man, yet found bvs to be okay.

Ant man is one of my favorite heroes.

When Cyz's flight got canceled yesterday, they gave her a run around about how her bags would be going to Pittsburg. I still don't know what the hell that was all about, but we got them back in the end. First time I've had that problem.

I've had that happen before. It's never fun.

I think we all remember the flight I had.

My best flight ever was a turboprop from Chicago to Flint, Michigan in a snowstorm.

It was a cramped little plane, I had a window seat, and as soon as we were airborne I looked down and saw that the ground below us was moving absolutely perpendicular to the plane. I asked the flight attendant, "Is that normal?" and she responded, "Oh, in a storm like this? Absolutely!"

Reassuring? Not so much...

My worst flight ever was a Turkish airlines flight from Istanbul to Hanover. We got to around 4000' over the Bosphorus (why goes Google Maps now say it's in Russia?). Power cut out and we plummeted in free fall for 3000'. I was sitting there thinking, "Oh, well. I guess today's the day I'm going to die." I was rather stoic about it. Guess you're more accepting when you know there's nothing you can do about it. I thought about the people who would miss me, felt a bit sad...
...and the engines cut in and allowed us to level out at maybe 500'. The plane limped and sputtered back to the airport, with nothing beyond, "Due to technical difficulties, we are returning to Istanbul International."

It took 6 hours to get a new plane. I didn't complain.

I haven't flown Turkish Airlines since.

as in you were in a nose dive or something else?

The pin in my finger has been out for two weeks and I've been doing PT the whole time. I didn't wear the splint at all yesterday or last night, so I decided to get brave and actually try touch-typing with that finger again! First time since May 9th!

Only... I can't. My touch typing patterns have changed, and I now use the middle and little fingers for the letters my ring finger used to hit. It's automatic and easy and I'm having a hard time forcing my ring finger to touch the keys.

So that's a change in a decades-old automatic practice in 2-1/2 months. Our habits are more plasic than I realized.

indeed. There is a theory that we are capable of making jaw dropping levels of alteration to our lives when we are injured in a very short amount of time, our increased reliance of technology has made this more obvious.

Isn't southwest one of the worst airlines or something like that?

Sorry, the voice actors for the subtitled versions of FMA and FMA:B sound like they're 7 years old or younger. I can't take them seriously at all. Have to go with the dub, if only to prevent me from wanting to smack Ed and Al through the screen.

On the subject of anime...

Me, prior to watching FMA Brotherhood, watching the original: OH GODDESS THE FILLER AND WHAT THE HELL IS HAPPENING NONE OF THIS MAAAAKES SENSE.

That colored my view of all other anime.

After my friend forced me to watch Brotherhood, it is physically difficult to pull myself away from the screen.

you have a problem with filler eps?

I just started episode 3. So far it is not bad.

Artwork an animation is above average. Mecha designs are...not to my taste, but that doesn't mean they are bad. Still watching.

Also, check out Heavy Object when you get the chance. Something tells me you would love that series.

Then did the New Starters come before the Supervisor, and they spake with one voice.

"O Captain", quoth they, "What rainment must we wear when we labour in thy service?"

And the Supervisor answered them, saying: "Robes of white mayest thou wear; also robes of scarlet, robes of purple and robes of divers hues. With whatsoever garment thy heart desireth mayest thou clothe thy bodies, e'en as thy voices are sent out to the four corners of the earth via the medium of analogue telephony"

Then up and spake one of the New Starters; quoth she: "Then I shall wear the Pants of Sweat, that do clingeth to me as the vine doth cling to the slopes of Mount Sphandekh, and also the Bra of Sports, that is wrought of the skin of that rare beast named Lycra, or Bouncy Penguin. Thus shall I be inspired to perform Great Feats of Acrobatics, and also display my Enviable Tattoos, e'en as my voice is sent out to the four corners of the earth via the medium of analogue telephony"

And the Supervisor waxed wroth, saying: "I meant not that -"

But the New Starters answered: "With thy lips did thou shape those words; with thy tongue did thou utter them, saying that we might wear whatsoever garments our heart desireth, and thou canst no more take them back than the bird might sport in the depths of the ocean, or the fish make merry amongst the clouds"

And the Supervisor could make no reply to this, merely saying, "So Mote It Be", remarking privily afterwards that she was not running an Academy for those who might dance around a pole, to the Glory of the Author of Lusts.
