A sufficiently advanced swinging bachelor pad is indistinguishable from a Bond villain lair.

seanhowe:

The very first superhero crossover, 1940.

Top: MLJ Comics house ad promoting the meeting of the the Shield and the Wizard, April 1940 cover date.
Middle: Pep Comics #4, May 1940 cover date.
Bottom: Top-Notch Comics #5, May 1940 cover date.

Why yes, their momentous meeting is a little underwhelming! Within months, though, Timely Comics—now known as Marvel Comics—would improve the art of the crossover considerably.

While an unerring ability to determine which direction is west is a useful power, it is not exactly a big help in fighting crime and smashing spy rings

Part of the cancelled Phipps Bend Nuclear Power Plant, Surgoinsville, Tennessee

Archaeologists believe the site has some unknown ritual significance, owing to the obvious difficulty of its construction and lack of clear practical purpose.

There are obvious similarities to the henges of Britain but the differences in size and construction suggest the builders of this monument were a distant offshoot of the henge builders.

On The Propriety Of Punching Nazis, An FAQ

On The Propriety Of Punching Nazis, An FAQ:

reddragdiva:

Can I punch Nazis?

I don’t know. Can you?

I am capable of the act, yes.

Then you should.

May I?

The answer to that is also yes.

My mother told me that violence was never the answer.

My mother told me I was handsome; you can’t always listen to your mother.

What happened to letting the other guy throw the first punch?

Nazis don’t throw the first punch. Nazis burn the first Reichstag.

Aren’t the Left supposed to be the tolerant ones?

Supposed to be the smart ones, too, but they keep falling for that “I thought you were supposed to be the tolerant ones” horseshit.

What about dialogue?

Dialogue is for reasonable people acting in good faith. Dialogue is between two acceptable positions. “Taxes need to be raised” vs. “taxes need to be lowered” is grounds for dialogue. “Taxes need to be raised” vs. “Jews should be thrown in ovens” is grounds for a beating.

But isn’t this sinking to their level?

That depends. After you punch the Nazi, do you espouse the tenets of National Socialism?

No.

Then you’re better than a Nazi.

But doesn’t this just give the other side ammunition?

The other side in this argument are lying fucks who can twist any piece of information into a swastika-shaped balloon animal if you engage them in good faith; lacking a piece of information, they’ll just make shit up. Might as well punch a Nazi.

What about peace, love, and understanding?

Great goals, and once we get rid of the Nazis we can get to work on them. All three are completely impossible when Nazis are about.

When should you punch a Nazi?

Whenever you get a chance. Preferably when they’re not looking.

What if they’re smaller than you?

Hit them with your fist.

What if they’re bigger?

Hit them with a bat.

Isn’t this a slippery slope?

After we defeated the Nazis in World War II, did we keep shooting people or did the troops come home and start having babies?

The second thing.

There you go. The slippery slope argument is nine times out of ten bullshit. Human beings are good with slippery slopes: we build stairs.

What if you think you’re punching a Nazi, but you just hit a white guy with a shitty haircut?

Run.

What should you do if you hit a Nazi?

You should run then, too. Don’t get me wrong: punching Nazis is still illegal. We’re discussing morality.

But I don’t want to punch anyone.

Then get off your duff, mister, and give aid and support to the boys on the front lines. We’re all in this together. Again.

  "Sounds ingenious," Gurgeh said.  "Does it work?"
  "So they'd have us believe.  In fact it's used as an excuse for not
giving people a proper trial, and anyway the rich just bribe their way out.
So yes, as far as the rulers are concerned, it works."
