Now re-read this post while believing that you're still in the "More Blithe Racism" thread. See where your imagination takes you.

I couldn't find the "Unfuck the police" thread, and I don't know if this will work as it is on the dreaded FB, but here is video of an officer stripped to his skivvies and helping a swan in a lake that is still mostly frozen.

More man than me, I'd safely say.

The text is also quite good, highlight being that the constable was thankful he had decided not to pick his Mickey Mouse briefs that morning after all.

I HATE that meme format, but I also super-agree, so I will thank, unthank, and then thank that. Just so you know.

I'm going to agree so hard to hate that meme format as I should have already that I'll redo the meme in a format that I don't see a use case that can't be used in any and all Chad/Virgin use cases.

The exact same situation, except Britain has no lakes compared to Finland. And the cops remain clothed.

Examining the blue plaque there, the house appears to have some association with the hapless but remarkable Richard Dadd - Wikipedia.

What better excuse for posting this, his most famous painting:

Pity the sword looks about 1000 years too young to be Excalibur.

Still a cool find, of course.

I havenít seen it here, but if you havenít heard Joss Whedon is a douche, but thatís not what Iím about to ramble about. Itís that Joss Whedonís particular set of douchey issues has suddenly made a plot line in Angel make sense.

In Angel, if I recall, and Iím not going to look it up, Fred is this young lady scientist who is involved in the research division of some demon related firm and becomes one of the good guys, sheís physically weak even for human standards but makes up for it with brains and friends. Fred is awesome. Through a set of orchestrated events a long dormant lovecraftian horror God was being ritualistically reborn, with Fred as the sacrifice. It is stopped, but too late, Fredís soul is destroyed however the demonic tentacle monster Illyria is trapped in Fredís body unable to fully emerge to destroy the world.

While there were some attempts to get Fred back and this is a demon haunted world, itís passed over pretty quickly that the new member of the team is an ancient evil horror puppeting the skin of their friends body. Even when she purposefully teases them about it, their reactions are a bit more Ďyou ate my favorite ice creamí than Ďyou murdered my friend and wear her skin.í and it always felt a bit weird that no one cared a bit more that Fred was gone forever.

So anyway it turns out Whedonís Ďtypeí if you will, is frail and waif *looking* young girls who are actually physically strong and powerful often through magic. Illyria, Fredís body but in sexy skin tight blue armor and superhuman strength, was basically his Ďfinal formí of Fred, despite the two being completely different characters on paper.

[You got some details wrong but that's not as important because correcting them wouldn't change the result. Fred is awesome.]

There's also the hidden horror of the Slayer's lineage too.

According to the mythos: "Once in every generation there is the Chosen. One girl in all the world with the blah blah blah fight vampires and monsters etc."

In Season 4 it's revealed that the First Slayer wasn't Chosen because of some Odin-esque spell put on an otherwise ordinary hammer. No. She was sacrificed to be paired with a demonic power by a council of men.

Itís interesting how some of the patterns jump out once noticed.

Like taken singularly thatís a perfectly reasonable story line, the watchers always seemed a bit malevolent, more neutral than good, of course thereís a chance the Slayer powers come from men forcing a woman into a union with a demon, itís not a rosey origin but thereís nothing too out of the ordinary about it. Singularly. But variants of that over and over, again, and it makes you start to go ďhmmĒ and ďOh of course, who would have guessed.Ē

And let's not ignore what happened to Cordelia Chase because of real life issues between JW and Charisma Carpenter. That was a total shit show. I wasn't a fan of the character and even I knew there was some bullshit going on (without having news sources and such I was poring over at the time). Queue no one's surprise to what has come out recently.
