I lack a sense of proportion
The US Executive branch can assassinate anyone with impunity. Hasbro gets rid of the iron in Monopoly. The world's turning to hell in a handbag.

I'm a little irked about the iron. I liked the little handle.

Oh, and the assassination stuff too, but I'm sure all the media will talk about will be the Monopoly iron.

Well, the Super Bowl is over, so there's more important stuff to fret about. Like Rhianna's taste in men.

Speaking of Animal Farm, have you seen any of the new Archer? I haven't, unfortunately.

I have seen all the new episodes. After re-watching the first season, the new season doesn't have nearly as many laugh-out-loud-oh-my-god-they-said-what?! moments, but it's still Awesomely Archer.

I was actually listening to an NPR segment about the assassination thing. Kind of scary how much power the government is securing for itself.

Unchecked power is always scary.

All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.

LJ has decided that this post of yours has adult content. On the one hand, I can understand it because of the word "assassinate". On the other hand, I think we may be removing something from the experience of growing up. That is, the possibility that you might come across something that scares you. I'm not talking about the word "assassinate" here, but things that are unplanned and could be scary. In my case, it's that time when my parents didn't stop me from watching the end of Carrie on t.v.; the hand coming out of the grave at the very end left me pretty much terrified for months (then again, I went to Catholic school in which imagining torture - of Jesus and the apostles - and hell were pretty much part of the day-to-day conversations).

Oh - and as for assassinations: I am waiting until the end of the day so that I can listen to the radio. Then I'll get freaked out about it.

I wasn't too empathetic to Jesus and the martyrs when I was a kid. It seemed too removed from my present. It's funny that I'm more sympathetic now, but more irreverent.

Extrajudicial executions are what the cool kids are doing nowadays. I shouldn't complain or I'll get a drone visiting me.

Shit, man, you don't know the half of it. Hasbro's giving Twilight Sparkle wings. The Bronyverse is blowing up over it. And they silently eliminated our favorite background pony.

Preposterous! I think. She doesn't already have wings?

Don't make me love and tolerate the shit out of you.

In my family nobody ever wanted to play the iron anyhow... we'd always fight over the shoe!

`Cause, you know, the shoe kicks ass.
