Linkstorm: Everything Sucks Forever

The following post is rated:

Japan's doing shitty, but it doesn't actually hit home until you see the before and after pics. Harsh. If you've got some money to spare, send it their way instead of blowing it on comics. Ooor, send some money their way then blow the rest on comics. Think this thing through.

The N-word is getting taken out of Huckleberry Finn. Because people are morons. Some people have started an (admittedly dated) campaign to change it to something else.

To make matters worse, even Pi is wrong now. Well, it's not wrong, but it's apparently not as great as Tau. I know my friend Derek has some investment in mathematics and some investment in a certain gun-bearing race from Warhammer 40K, so I anticipate this being a painful issue to find a side on.

China is being dicks. Well, still. Well, actually they've been at this a while. You may want to sit up and take notice. China is kind of a big deal.

Finally, apparently Predator is gay. I don't buy it; some movies are made to be immune to subtext. That said, it is fun to look at familiar objects from a different point of view(even radically different). I mean...that's the entire deal of

New, promising-looking Apes movie. Granted, I liked all of the other Apes movies, so maybe I just have terrible taste(Yes, even the Mark Wahlberg one. Mark Wahlberg is great. Did you see The Departed!?)

You can't even get a new video game without waiting on shit. "Pop it and play it;" that should be the motto of the video game console.

A guy did take the Buddist approach to leveling in World of Warcraft. 85 levels with just gathering professions. No killing. I think I can argue with Yahtzee when he talks about video games being responsible for 100-percenters; those poor bastards will do it to themselves. At least give 'em some pokemon for their trouble.

The Martian Manhunter gets his due. Well, maybe too much due. YMMV.

New DS came out, so that should be making people happy. Oh wait. It isn't.

Alright, what if My Little Ponies made sounds like action movies? Would that make you happy? Are you sure? It's awesome.

It turns out, a book that was mysteriously popular in the 1700's wasn't so mysteriously popular after all; there were erotic poems in the back. Alright, it's kind of a mixed bag, but it's hilarious none-the-less.

What about if an astronaut talked shit about politicians and perspective?

We're all human, and we're all surprisingly closely related. :D And somewhat inbred. D:

Alright, the big guns, Chris Sims:

If that didn't make you smile just a little bit, then there is one of two things going on here:
1) You are an unsexy robot.
2) You suffer from a terrible malaise and should dye your hair black, straighten it, and...finish this emo joke on your own. Remember to add something about my phone number.
