coupons [Sunday 20 December 2009|07:18pm]
If you have a basic/plus account and have been thinking about getting a paid account, LJ is permitting me (as a Special Person) to send you a $10 coupon. I am willing to pass one out to whoever asks for one.

Obviously you should not let this persuade you to give money to LJ if you weren't already going to, and the coupons apparently cannot be used to pay forward on an account that is already paid (yeah, boo). Consequently, I don't really expect that there will be much demand for mine, but if this extremely narrow set of circumstances applies to you, drop me a comment and I will send you one.

Details, such as they are, are here:

It turns out that almost a quarter of the ACLU's operating budget was donated by one guy. That one guy has been rendered somewhat less wealthy than he used to be by the economic events of the past 18 months and can no longer support the ACLU the way he used to.

The ACLU is soliciting donations right now to try to make up for the shortfall. Someone is matching the donations for the moment (no idea who - the email doesn't say) so even small donations are being doubled.

I don't think I've ever posted about the ACLU here before, but it's an organization that I really believe in. They are typically portrayed as being flaming liberals, but it isn't like that ... they are just as fast to defend crazy right-wingers if the right-wingers' civil liberties are being infringed. It's kind of a sad comment on American culture at the moment that an organization that defends civil liberties gets routinely maligned. I don't know when civil liberties became a bad word in the United States - probably around the same time liberal became a bad word, and if I had to guess I'd say it likely started with the black civil rights movement - but civil liberties are really what this country is all about. They are what separates the United States from its enemies. When right-wingers say, "the terrorists hate us for our freedoms," the freedoms they are talking about are the ones defended by the ACLU, which if you think about it is really ironic.

(That's not true, by the way - it's not our freedoms that the terrorists hate)

Here is the link to the donation page:


Upon clicking it, you will be immediately redirected to an https site. There is a list of suggested amounts, but you can put in any amount in the blank box, and even $5 would help. Only credit cards accepted, though.

I've disallowed comments on this post because I'm not really interested in a political debate or a debate about the ACLU. Click it or not - donate or not. Your decision, either way.

this is what happens when I'm angry at work [Tuesday 06 October 2009|08:07pm]
I was in an ALLCAPS RAGE today at work because of some work stuff, and of course that meant that I needed to have a totally not-work-related conversation with herongale in email. The topic we chose today is Skywarp's teleportation ability. Because trying to put limits and definitions on something that was invented for a toy intended for tweeners 25 years ago is a worthwhile use of my time.

thoughts about TELEPORTATION under the cut - you know you want to click itCollapse )

I read GI Joe (A Real American Hero!) vs the Transformers yesterday, the miniseries by Devil's Due. Unexpectedly entertaining and really hilarious. I was somewhat disconcerted by Starscream's black repaint; it made him look like Skywarp. Also: Thundercracker gets no love. NONE.

But the most entertaining aspect was the revelation that energon, if hit by a nuclear blast, is capable of cracking the planet in half.

Now, let's think about that. Energon, to Transformers, is like delicious cake crossed with booze crossed with nitroglycerin. It is simultaneously fuel, intoxicant, and high explosive. Already we can see that the Quintessions really hated the Transformers when they decided to make Transformers run on energon, and to be honest I'm not sure how they can take so many laser blasts to the chest without exploding. They must be gas-sippers when not trying to get smashed.

Now we learn that the explosive aspect of it is even more extreme than previously believed. CRACKING THE PLANET IN HALF. Just add a nuclear device and you have planet-destroying capability. We're not even talking about all that much energon, here. I'd say that it was about as much as Prime could carry in his trailer (if he had a trailer, which he didn't in this miniseries, which was just wrong). That's not a lot of energon.

I'm trying to think of a legitimate reason to build a robot that runs on something that is capable of destroying worlds if, like mixing bleach and ammonia, you add the wrong stuff to it. I'm willing to buy energon being explosive in the ordinary sense, since we are stupid enough to run our vehicles on explosive chemicals. But come on. Seriously. Cracking the planet in half? Really?

This weekend, herongale and I mainlined Transformers: Animated. Turns out it's not that long of a series.
