      Meanwhile, arguments about whether the shooter was legit or a CIA/whatever plant trying to do a 9/11 are popping up.

    • Consider this for the upcoming pokémon game starters:
      Water/Dragon for the chameleon
      Fire/Fairy for the rabbit
      Grass/Steel for the monkey

      Then for the first time each starter would have one advantage and one disvantage over each other, and the rock paper scissors nature of starters would disappear once they evolve.

    • Ever since "Press F to pay respects" became a meme posting "F" as a comment is kind of like when people said "bad" because maybe you're grading them harshly or maybe it means "cool" this time

                • @drinkingpony Broad strokes: the general atmosphere of the internet and this outrage culture we're going through. Specific instigator: The Simpsons pulling a Stalin on the Michael Jackson guest star episode and deleting it entirely from the catalog as though it had never happened. You know, exactly like Warner Bros DIDN'T DO about their WWII propaganda shorts.

                • @scribus " the general atmosphere of the internet and this outrage culture we're going through"

                  Oh, yeah, Outrage culture. Also known as the "Age of Apathy" for some. I know nothing of The Simpsons so I guess it is/was a recent episode.

                  But I guess most people have forgotten about it now since Notch ( the Minecraft dude ) done did something.

                • @drinkingpony @scribus It's not really about whether it was a good episode or not, it's about revisionism and a fascist mindset without any of the good parts of fascism, where anything that is deemed not kosher is censored and removed from public records.

                  It was an old episode that was relevant for the time it came out, but the kind of individual that complains about things being "problematic" has no sense of nuance, historical significance, context, or anything like that. Some would see anything that doesn't match the current discourse removed entirely.

                • 22 years ago, human-scientists cloned a sheep. Dolly the Sheep they called her. But I am pretty sure it suffered from something that sounded like 'checkerboard'-ism? If someone knows the exact name of that, I would love to know it, for google is not playing nice with me on that font.

                              • Some 10 years ago I remember seeing a police show on TV and loving it, but I could never remember the name. The squad-cars were black and white, there were 3 newbs, one ( the main character ) was obviously Italian, the guy whom was supposed to teach him could have been Officer Hightower in appearance but with Samuel L Jackson's potty mouth and mean demeanor.

                                Anyone know what show I am talking about? For it seems google has failed me, big time.

                                • @scribus Since I am pretty sure I watched it on TV on a channel owned by RTL, and it started at 23:00 (11 PM I believe that is), So I am pretty certain that it was not anywhere a new show at that time. But then I would have to assume mostly that RTL are cheapskates (they are) and that 23:00 is nowhere near prime-time for either a premiere or a new-ish TV show.

                              • I also made the hardware store clerk count 232 rivets one by one. He had hand rivets, which are a rarity here since everyone uses pop rivets, but refused to sell me a box, insisting that they were sold by the unit.

                                He spent 10 minutes counting for $3 of rivets and $0.50 of nails.
