The "whatever's on your mind" thread

posted by GuruGuru214 on - last edited - Viewed by 199.7K users

One of the things that's great about this forum is its randomness. Well, this is the epitome of it: a thread for whatever random thought happens to be passing through your mind.

For example, I've just been struck by the most random craving for Taco Bell nachos.

    That's actually not bad hah :D

  • Anyone watching WWE Raw? This is an awesome show tonight!

  • NCAA CHAMPIONSHIOP is slightly more important this Monday.

    I guarantee that the crowed isnt as hyper as WWE's one tonight there humming in tune to the theme songs to wrestlers when there not even playing chanting for the refs commentators and wrestlers who aren't even there! They even did a "we are awesome!" chant.

  • @DAISHI said: I'm announcing a short novel fan fiction about Superman, Batman, Lex Luthor and The Joker.

    The aim of this work is to answer a few specific questions as well as make certain points.

    Lex Luthor and Batman are, inherently, the same individual.

    Why does Lex Luthor do the things he do? What is the driving motivation behind his actions?

    Why is The Joker the most sane individual you could ever encounter?

    Why this quote by Batman, "It is a remarkable dichotomy. In many ways, Clark is the most human of us all. Then...he shoots fire from the skies, and it is difficult not to think of him as a god. And how fortunate we all are that it does not occur to him." Is absolutely and entirely wrong.

    How do you beat a God whom you cannot destroy?

    Why all four men are inherently working within the same box and mindframe.

    in the justice league cartoon batman reveals that he has a plan for killing/subduing each member of the justice league just in case the power they have ever goes to their head, like in the alternate reality where superman lobotomizes villains with his laser eyes and takes over the world, i like that about batman that he fears the corruption that can come with power and he is so paranoid about it he has planned for it

    I believe you mean in the Justice League comic, where it was critically praised years before the plot point was directly lifted for the cute little cartoon for children.

    But Batman IS part of the corruption from the perspective of someone like Luthor, who observes individuals acting outside the scope of societal norms and law as being corrupt. Luthor is inherently about societal order and organization, the triumph of the corporate body as opposed to Joker, who is about triumph of the self or individual. Batman is less a player in ordered structure than Superman, since Btman is willing to bend and break laws that he sees opposing moral justice, but to Joker both are still playing by the rules. Even Joker, to his great madness, is playing by the rules, and his behavior is partly driven by his desire to transcend them.

    no i mean the cartoon which i enjoy, which is obviously based on the comics (duh) and if you can't appreciate it that is your problem

    yeah, the alternate reality (older) batman thinks the way batman interrogates people is too soft and he basically just beats the shit out of people, batman is definitely corruptible but he is still only human and that gives him an advantage over the superheroes he works with

    In terms you may actually be able to understand:

    It's like saying someone has a distinctive scar, like Harry Potter in the Sorcerer's Stone movie, or that a vehicle can travel through time like the DeLorean in the Back to the Future cartoon. It's silly.
