aristophanes flinches

Satire is a prisma magnus through which the stark and often confronting spectral dimensions of life can be studied through the softening filter of humour. Aristophanes flinches in his grave as a feckless zeitgeist takes hold.

it only took me about 20 years but i finally figured out how to reliably jump-swipe attack in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: the arcade game - NES version so uh ok i have that now

On my quintillionth toddler viewing of wall-e, points out that in universe it was canon they knew it would take hundreds of years for earth to be sustainable again, but sold the mission as short term.


TIL that Bob Hawke was the first who floated the idea for work for the dole, and John Howard almost immediately pounced on the idea to bring it to fruition.
