Klingons vs. Furries and PC Sep. 27th, 2007 @ 10:14 pm
I can think of only one thing Geekier than that

Trafalger in todays Politically correct world
Listen to this article. Powered by Odiogo.com

I was wondering while i was working If Nelson’s navy had been subject to today’s regulatory environment, would the Battle of Trafalgar have proceeded more like this?


“Order the signal, Hardy.”


“Aye aye sir.”


“Hold on, that’s not what I dictated to the signal officer. What’s the meaning of this?”


“Sorry sir?”


“England expects every person to do their duty – regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religious persuasion or disability. What sort of gobbledygook is this?”


“Admiralty policy, I’m afraid sir. We’re an equal opportunities employer now. We had the devil’s own job getting England past the censors, lest it be considered racist.”


“Gadzooks Hardy! Hand me my pipe and tobacco.”


“Sorry sir. All naval vessels have been designated smoke-free working environments.”


“In that case break open the rum rations. Let us splice the mainbrace to steel the men before battle.”


“The rum ration has been abolished, Admiral. It’s part of the Government’s policy on binge drinking.


“Good heavens Hardy. I suppose we’d better get on with it. Full speed ahead.”


“I think you’ll find that there’s a 4 knot speed limit in this stretch of water.”


“Damn it man! We’re on the eve of the greatest sea battle in history. We must advance with all dispatch. Report from the crow’s nest please.”


“That won’t be possible sir,”


”What?


”Health and safety have closed the crow’s nest sir. No harness. And they say the rope ladder doesn’t meet regulations. They won’t let anyone up there until a proper scaffolding can be erected.


”Then get me the ship’s carpenter without delay, Hardy.”


”He’s busy knocking up a wheelchair access to the fo’castle Admiral.”


“Wheelchair access? I’ve never heard anything so absurd.”


“Health and safety again sir. We have to provide a barrier free environment for the differently-abled.”


”Differently-abled? I’ve only one arm and one eye and I refuse to have the word mentioned. I didn’t rise to the rank of admiral by playing the disability card.”


“Actually sir, you did. The Royal Navy is under-represented in the areas of visual impairment and limb deficiency.”


”Whatever next? Give me full sail. The salt spray beckons.”


“A couple of problems there too sir. Health and safety won’t let the crew up the rigging without crash helmets. And they don’t want anyone breathing in too much salt – haven’t you seen the adverts?”


”I’ve never heard such infamy. Break out the cannon and tell the men to stand by to engage the enemy.”


“The men are a bit worried about shooting at anyone, Admiral.”


“What? This is mutiny.”


”It’s not that sir. It’s just that they’re afraid of being charged with murder if they actually kill anyone. There are a couple of legal aid lawyers on board, watching everyone like hawks.”


“Then how are we to sink the Frenchies and the Spanish?”


”Actually sir, we’re not.”


“We’re not?”


”No sir. The Frenchies and the Spaniards are our European partners now.

According to the Common Fisheries policy we shouldn’t even be in this stretch of water. We could get hit for a claim for compensation.”


”But you must hate a Frenchman as you hate the devil.”


“I wouldn’t let the ship’s diversity co-ordinator hear you saying that sir. You’ll be up on a disciplinary.”


“You must consider every man an enemy who speaks ill of your King.”


”Not any more, sir. We must be inclusive in this multicultural age. Now put on your Kevlar vest. It’s the rules.”


”Don’t tell me – health and safety. Whatever happened to rum, sodomy and the lash?”


“As I explained sir, rum is off the menu and there’s a ban on corporal punishment.”


“What about sodomy?”


“I believe it’s to be encouraged sir.”

Webcomics Sep. 14th, 2007 @ 09:12 pm
Ok at work, I read webcomics, lots and lots of webcomics. I do work, don't get me wrong, my job just sucks, but for 14.50 an hour I don't complain too much.

Here is my review on the webcomics I have read. Most webcomics suck, oh they start out good, but sooner or later they start to fail, which originally worried me since I am myself writing a webcomic, but as I thought about it I'm writing it with someone else, so thankfully I have another source to bounce ideas off of so they don't suck. Now where I'm going with this is that most comics are written and drawn by one person there is no problem with this. Generally but from time to time people stop being funny and enter drama into a comic because they think it will be cool, removing the funny. You cannot be cool and then be funny, you can be funny and as a byproduct be cool but not the other way around. There is one exception but we'll ignore that.

Case and point:
http://www.stuffsucks.com/
This started out as a great comic about beatniks making fun of Emo, always enjoyable, a guy about to ask a girl to marry him, as things take a turn for the worse the level of inanity and amusement rise, but then somewhere in the last 50 comics she wrote they stopped being funny, drama became the main tenant of what was going on, ruining the comic.

www.shortpacked.com
Started out as a bunch of people working in a Toy Store with an insane boss bent on World Domination, you know fun stuff. It had movie jokes, 80's cartoon jokes, SW... you name it they made fun of it. Soon he decided it wasn't enough he inputed drama into his comic, pulling the drama tag as he puts it. The main character becomes gay, no lead in he's just gay now. And the comic ceases to be funny, not because the main character if gay, but because he stopped trying to be funny when he added drama, if he was trying to be funny it fell flat. Thankfully he's managed to start to turn it around so we'll se where that goes.

Good comics I recommend:

Dr. McNinja
http://www.drmcninja.com/
Its a doctor who's a Ninja, need I say more. Well I will, updated a few times a week this crazy Dr/Ninja/Asskicker(wait that's redundant) with his Office Assistant Judy, by the way Judy is a Gorilla. Fight evil Zombies, Pirates, people with Six Packs, Paul Bunyan, and other Ninja. Managed to keep the humor going and I think he can keep doing it.

www.penny-arcade.com
If you haven't heard of them you've been dead for 8 years. Gabe's art is amazing, and Tycho's writing is by far unmatched in my opinion. No drama just satire, and gamer humor. As I've said two people keep stupid ideas from getting too far, its a checks and balances system.

http://www.moderntales.com/comics/anywherebuthere.php?view=archive&chapter=13635
The exception, as I've said normally mixing humour and drama does not work, but he manages to do it quite well. Read it I'm pretty sure you will enjoy, great music jokes, and weird shit happens but otherwise its really good, and Death is cool.

http://www.xkcd.com/
Great Geek humor, no drama, it can't exist so all is well.

There are others and I will post as I finish them one of them is questionablecontent.com. But have yet to finish the actual comic.

But that is my post.
Bye

» Movies and Doctor Who
Ok, I have overloaded on media. I don't know how but somehow I have. Well that's not entirely true. I can't overload on music, its not possible.

I've seen three big movies recently; Cars, Superman Returns, and Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Man's Chest. Then to top it off I just watched the last two episodes of this season of Doctor Who back to back, waited to see them until the Season Finale came out.

I'd do a Movie Review but that'd take time, I think I'll stick to talking about Doctor Who.

***Disclaimer***Shippers Beware***You Will Be Pissed Off***(By shippers I mean the Good Ship Doctor Rose)

Now while the Ship has been fun, I'm glad its over. The Doctor is not supposed to have a companion who is as experienced as Rose. Romana aside, she pushed the series forward in another way. Rose was getting too good at entering a new situation. That and if the ship went much longer it the show would have had to change its name to the "Love Tardis." If that had happened you'd have pissed off every old Who fan out their, and since I fall under that category, that includes me.

Now aside from that I thought the ending was awesome and I think it means a few things for the next season. 1-One of the Daleks wasn't sucked back into the Void, that's how it works, it may even be the 4 of the Skarro Cult. 2-Given the fact that the Daleks have made a major comeback twice, the Time Lords most likely are still alive. 3-Given that we have focussed on 2 of the Doctor's most fierce enemies, Daleks and Cybermen, we have one last big one to encounter again, I think its time for the Master to make a comeback.

Now onto another isssue, RTD is an amazing writer, he is not a Deus Ex Machina writer. While the end of the 9th Doctor and New Earth were Deus Ex Machina, given the time constraints unto which they were written its amazing how well they turned out. And after Doomsday, RTD has truly proven himself as a great Script Writer.

And Once again I salute the sinking of the Ship Doctor-Rose, and do a happy little jig.

You scored as James Bond, Agent 007. James Bond is MI6's best agent, a suave, sophisticated super spy with charm, cunning, and a license's to kill. He doesn't care about rules or regulations and somewhat amoral. He does care about saving humanity though, as well as the beautiful women who fill his world. Bond has expensive tastes, a wide knowledge of many subjects, and his usually armed with a clever gadget and an appropriate one-liner.
