In my mind I think it is good that someone made a new one of these threads.
I'm getting paid annoyingly low for increasingly more complex work at my job.
started out as frontend for years, but by now I'm only doing backend with no increase in salary.
I'm starting to detest the presence of gods in stories/media.
Its not as if I'm the sort of person who wants to burn religious buildings to the ground and/or mock people who have religious beliefs in real life, but over time I've just gotten sick of these pointlessly powerful gods in fictional stories.
Their presence just detracts from the settings involved or the actions and struggle of 'regular' beings in the plot.
Well, that obviously depends on the story in question, but gods can be handled good in a story, as well as used as a stupid plot device.
I feel that. Any examples?
Thoughts on Superman?
Don't have a problems with Clark himself. He's a good upstanding individual who isn't actually as overpowered as "common knowledge" would say, being there's multiple other heroes and villains who can match or exceed his abilities.
It's only when he falls into the hands of powerlevel wankers or fanboy writers who only care about him being STRONK rather than being a good man that problems arise (or crappy writers who use him as a mouthpiece for their own petty feelings, that sucks too).
Kryptonians as a species are more annoying, when some writers portraying them as unstoppable physical gods that just need to sunbathe for a minute to becomes so. But honestly the bigger problem with neverending comicbooks is the obnoxious Power Creep that grows like a tumor.
Supes is the best when writers remember that he's a genuinely good guy, not because his abilities, but because he was raised to be an unselfish, helpful man who looks for the best in anyone.
It's probably why I prefer the 80s Byrne era Superman, who not only had hard limits on his powers (he gets smacked around a lot, sometimes described as needing week long vacations to recharge), but also because he got his powers late in his teens. So he became a good person first, then got powers.
I think he should be a cuck raising the lovechild of Lois and Batman.
it says speak my mind isnt it

maybe it just shoots death ray by showing its arse and so all that folllws it shall have trails of death everywhere it touches.>>423025
I think it's absolutely fair; posting many times in a row is normally a rule violation due to it disrupting other conversations so I've compromised and kept them here without taking up 13 posts.>>423026

I'd like to own the place me an my roommate are renting from his parents, so we don't have to stress about losing it when they fail to pay the mortgage.
Really can't handle the idea of moving again.Replies:>>423060>>422945
The Spectre is far worse than Superman, he doesn't fit in a superhero universe with his bullshit as well as the contrivances that have him inflict monstrous punishment on no name people for their "sins" rather than going after the villains with actual actual atrocities under their belts. If anything he should be a monster the heroes team up and destroy.>>423053
The spectre only works as a plot device and half the time he just gives the heroes shit.Watched one video of a dude clearing out the drains on a flooded road (some fucking psycho drivers were driving on the pavement just so their cars wouldn't splash) in order that it could clear up and now my recommended videos is full of water-related shit like this.
Video shows moment dam gate collapsed at Lake Dunlap
Have I wondered into some sort of niche youtube fetish content?>>423067

Paper used to be so based the catholic church wanted to ban it.Its early morning, just finished shaving after putting off for while. Noticed handful of single moles/freckles on various places of face. Feel pissed off that skin is so impure/marked even though its basically nothing. Hate aging.Replies:>>423130>>423128

Think of whoever is withholding from you the secrets to advanced regeneration. Hate that fucker with all your might.Replies:>>423152The age of science has failed to explain our universe in rational terms. Consequently the power of magic has gradually emerged from our conscious minds to fathom the unfathomable. Our most distinguished scientists reluctantly admit, that mankind is nothing but some billion creatures, sitting on a piece of solar driftwood floating in space.
Magic is the art of influencing the cause of events by the intervention of spiritual forces or some other occult device.
According to Arthur C. Clarke, any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. Early civilization often mistook the unexplainable world around them to be magic.
Rupert Sheldrake in his book "Seven experiments that could change the world" has stated that scientist's attitude toward their experiments affect the results of their experiments. There is no such thing as a definite fact in science and therefore the irrationality of magic plays an important part in our rational world.
Werner Heisenberg, the leading 20th century physicist has stated, that mass is a physical interpretation of energy.
Religious organizations have understood the power of magic; and therefore monopolized the interpretation of the supernatural to control the human mind.
The universe as a whole is beyond explanation. Only at the end of the 20th century the roman catholic church admitted, that the great visionary Galileo Galilei was, in fact, correct.
The second millennium has come to an end.
Scientists have to admit that the universe is magic.>>423149
That's not a water elemental, this is.>>423148
This almost seems like a bot post. Feels like it should have a link to some malware-ridden file download or website attached to it.>>423152

Nah, it's just an /x/phile expressing himself. The lizardmen must be resisted!F1 opened this weekend, Verstappen was winning throughout nearly the entire thing, beat Hamilton fair and square, despite Hamilton consistently leaving the track on one turn without any repercussions for the entire race.
Then in the last few laps he overtakes him, and GIVES THE POSITION BACK after he was told to do so on the radio.
As if there was any fucking doubt that the entire fucking thing is fixed to have Hamilton winning.>>423156
I mean, if one was to theoretically drink her whole, would she survive being pissed out? Would it depend on the species of the drinker/vorer and their digestive biome?>>423202
Those are very important questions, I'll remember to ask them the next time I meet a water elemental who wants me to drink her.1d4chan seems to have died. Fuck.>>423223
I also noticed it being down. That fucking sucks.The idea of all the oldfag internet content/knowledge of the past slipping away is disheartening.
Even though its an inevitability that one day everything ends and fades away.
Afterall even everything on Earth will be totally gone one day and it'll be only a blip on the surface of the universe.>>423223
It's still down. There were times in the past where it was down for a week or two, hope it will get back up.
Failing that, let's hope someone has a backup...I can't fucking stand the new age-restriction bullshit they put on youtube, before you just had to login but now?
I'm not giving them my fuckin card details just to see every video they randomly tag as "age-locked".Replies:>>423403>>423397
So far I've only had YT do that age restriction shit for stuff tagged as children content.>>423401
They are doing it due to that EU regulation where you have to verify you are an adult to see content that could be intended for adults only.
I haven't had them asking for my card details yet, but I use a google account that's 15 years old so they probably have not flagged me.
Either way you can use youtube-dl to get around it.
