    [–] Woman, 29, is feared missing after live-streaming herself throwing ink on a photo of Chinese President Xi Jinping The_Telltale_Fart 2 points ago in worldnews

    Deny someone a basic freedom and they'll be 10x more likely to do it. Why should it be nornal to be scared? She was trying to make a point and was probably aware of the dangers.

    What awful logic. So because this happens all the time we shouldn't care about each individual case? Especially when it's likely been sanctioned by government? Be careful you don't cut yourself with that edge buddy.

    The vast majority of historians would disagree with you, a great deal can be learned about the historical Jesus from it. A quick Google would tell you that. But hey this is reddit.....religion sux guiz.

    [–] Mysterious ways The_Telltale_Fart 2 points ago in FunnyandSad

    Look it up, it's not just about historical references. Historians use certain techniques that get crosschecked with the cultural and political climate at the time that very easily ascertain what sections of the bible were altered and what weren't. It's really quite interesting.

    [–] I only now watched "The Dark Knight" and was surprised that so many popular quotes are from it The_Telltale_Fart 18 points ago in self

    Sorry no. That is not what you meant and you know it. Not one word in what you quoted there is the same. The theme is similar but that's about it. That's like saying the movie is plagiarizing Shakespeare since the themes are similar.

    Uh no they're not. Like at all.

    Harvey comes up with the "long enough to see yourself become the villain" when talking about Caesar and it's a totally off the cuff remark by him.

    "Some men want to watch the world burn" is completely me when that was ever said before that.

    "hero we deserve"....again original and never said in anything I've ever read. It may seem classical to you because they're excellent lines but they're completely original to TDK.

    I mean, why would the most famous dialogue from the movie be memes if they weren't originally from the movie?

    [–] Joe Dante’s SMALL SOLDIERS Is A Military Satire For Kids The_Telltale_Fart 2 points ago in movies

    That is almost a perfect comparison. There is a very starship troopers satirical bent to it. You can see that something important is being said about the military and consumerism all the while this crazy shit is happening. I just didn't pick up on it as an 8 year old.

    [–] What's going on with Ed Sheeran recently? The_Telltale_Fart 1 points ago in OutOfTheLoop

    "Point out"... lol all you're pointing out is your opinion that you haven't backed up at all. why is it asinine? Because it annoys you that's why. I gonna go ahead and say you like must like ed Sheehan then.

    The phrase is borderline identical and you must be in denial to think otherwise. Who cares if people have been doing for a long time, what does that have anything to do with it? That's not a valid argument.

    [–] Elon Musk is seriously about to fix the water problem for flint Michigan. The_Telltale_Fart 11 points ago in goodnews

    Lol that intial tweet to him is so goading him. "My friend says you couldn't fill a cup of water if it was raining outside, he says you're a big weeny scared of getting wet.."

    [–] Just watched The Matrix for the first time, have a few questions. The_Telltale_Fart 1 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago) in matrix

    I think in a few days maybe go and watch it again before going into 2 and 3 cos you'll just be super confused.

    The bug that agent Smith put into his stomach was extracted by Trinity in the car before he went to meet Morpheus. That was all real and not a dream. It's hinted that the agents and The Matrix can fuck with a person's memory in order to convince them it wasn't real. Remember Neo days "Jesus Christ that thing's real?!" when she pulls it out of him? He thought it was a dream too until he saw it.

    Anyways all of those that took place in the Matrix so while they weren't dreams, they also weren't "real". Which brings me to why you should watch it again.

    The Matrix is fake, it's a big computer simulation and it isn't real. Think of it as a giant super realistic videogame that no one knows isn't real. Everything in the Matrix takes place in the minds of humans in a sort of collective dreamstate created by the machines to control them. This is what those towers were, they're the machine power plants and they are where everyone sleeps in the pods while "living" in the matrix, not aware of reality.

    I mean you could say technically say that because those towers is where the matrix is powered that that's where the matrix is located in the Real World but it's deeper than that.

    Everything with the ship and the crew takes place in the Real World, the true reality which is a desolate wasteland destroyed by the human/machine war years before. There are no citys, no life and nowhere to go above ground in the Real world, which is why Neo, Morpheus and the crew remain travelling in the vast tunnels underground and computer hack into the Matrix from there using a pirate signal.

    [–] I have never been so disappointed in a fan base The_Telltale_Fart 1 points ago in JurassicPark

    I don't know how old you are but you're taking this very personally and maybe you should take a break from movies if you can't handle people criticising something you like.

    [–] Neill Blomkamp To Direct Sequel for the Original ‘RoboCop’ The_Telltale_Fart 3 points ago in RedLetterMedia

    Meh, the original Robocop writers had this script ready years ago but a strike made it fall through. They also did starship troopers so I'll wait and see.

    [–] This fallen tree that never gave up on life The_Telltale_Fart 1 points ago in mildlyinteresting

    Ugh come on, both you and I know that a lot of this has to do with your negative depressive attitude to life. You've lost before you've even begun. Go to the gym, talk to people and get off the internet.

    [–] Joaquin Phoenix is officially doing a Joker origin movie The_Telltale_Fart 15 points ago in RedLetterMedia

    Also the arkham city game made freeze out to be a terrifying presence with terminator like focus.

    [–] Joaquin Phoenix is officially doing a Joker origin movie The_Telltale_Fart 19 points ago in RedLetterMedia

    Is that why he hasn't been Metoo'd yet? All the creepy stories I've read about him and underage girls at his rock shows...

    [–] The Destruction of Isla Nublar The_Telltale_Fart 0 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago) in JurassicPark

    I would have liked them to have justified their decision to blow up the island by delivering an actual good movie. If i had watched a movie that built on its predecessors in a respectful way i wouldn't be angry. But the decision to destroy everything! And replace it with a haunted house story was sooo bad.

    Not only can we never go back to the island in future movies, now we have a super messy and poorly thought through scenario on the mainland that is kinda laughable in comparison to the original. There's not much at all they can do with it that's very interesting, unless another park was built on the mainland. The whole central conceit of JP has been made redundant in my eyes, there's no allure anymore and the mystique that was inherent in the franchise is gone.

    [–] The wild Wild West The_Telltale_Fart 4 points ago in WhitePeopleTwitter

    Because it's all about the facade of appearing to be "with it", by saying things that have no real meaning but signal to the reader that they are in fact "cool" and not some basic bro talking about children's lemonade.

    I was once "with it" but then they changed what "it" is and now what "it" is seems strange and scary to me. And it'll happen to you...
