The Underwhelmist

Elliot Adams is a student and freelance journalist carved from a ball of purest rage that fell to earth in 1985, he observes this absurd world through his jade-tinted spectacles and scoffs. Elliot's got friends in every town and village from here to the Sudan, he speaks a dozen languages, knows every local custom, he'll blend in, disappear, you'll never see him again.

but where’s his shield?

loved the anime

Best manga EVER!

I call shenanigans: where is his bow and quiver?!!?!?

he doesn’t get it until after the cell saga

But not before he fights with Arlong.

OH AND after he stops Fire Lord Ozai with his energy bending.

Guys you forgot he needs to defeat Ragnaros before all that.

The Washington Times has the Iran hawks squawking the same way they did over Iraq

Sad seeing the same sources that misled their readers in the rush to the Iraq War using the same rhetoric about Iran. The same molehill mountaineers appealing to the same basic impulses to bypass our rationality.

The Washington Times, for one, is being grossly misleading. What they say is a significant ‘reversal’ of America’s position on Iran’s nuclear programme has long been the position of the US and the UN - that uranium enrichment should be suspended(rather than permanently halted as the Times would claim) contributing “to a diplomatic, negotiated solution that guarantees Iran’s nuclear programme is for exclusively peaceful purposes.”

There’s a clear stench of war-mongering in The Times claim that conceding Iran’s right to peaceful uranium enrichment is “an important reversal of America’s position”, a quote they’ve taken from an unnamed state-run news agency in Iran and taken for gloating. But there are obvious reasons for such a state media apparatus to inaccurately portray the talks as a victory over the ‘Great Satan’ the USA - the Washington Times knows this, they’re just trying to damage the talks.

This is the same misleading talk of appeasement, weak-willed liberals & UN representatives and gloating evil dictators, that preceded the Iraq war. It’s almost certainly going to be just as effective this time too.

Filosofighters - Oh the Humanities!

filosopfighters philosopher fighting game Marx vs Descartes free flash game browser game

A review I just wrote of Filosofighters is up over on The Play Vault now. It is a flash fighting game with a cast of history’s greatest thinkers. You pick your fighter from a roster including Saint Augustine, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Niccolò Machiavelli(him off Assassin’s Creed II), René Descartes, Friedrick Nietzsche and Karl Marx, and then battle through the history of philosophy. 

Filosofighters is not really successful as a clone of classic Street Fighter, but it is still a fantastic mash-up of philosophy in-jokes and loving tributes to classic fighting games. And frankly, I have a soft spot for any game that has Nietzsche throwing God’s corpse at Saint Augustine
