Video game enemies are already made of money, though. That’s why wolves and spiders drop currency.

First, this entire incident speaks to the continued power of right-wing mythology. For many of the protesters, this isn’t about a rogue rancher as much as it’s a stand against “tyranny” personified in Barack Obama and his administration.

Second, it won’t happen, but right-wing media ought to be condemned for their role in fanning the flames of this standoff. After years of decrying Obama’s “lawlessness” and hyperventilating over faux scandals, it’s galling to watch conservatives applaud actual lawbreaking and violent threats to federal officials.

Finally, I can’t help but wonder how conservatives would react if these were black farmers—or black anyone—defending “their” land against federal officials. Would Fox News applaud black militiamen aiming their guns at white bureaucrats?

Somehow, given the degree to which right-wing media traffic in racial paranoia, I think we’d be looking at a different situation if the Bundy Ranch belonged to a bunch of black people. And as someone who closely follows the regular incidents of lethal police violence against blacks and Latinos, I also wonder whether law enforcement would be as tepid against a group of armed African-Americans. Judging from past events, I’m not so sure.

Mustang Wagon

The factory Ford Mustang wagon is a fabled creation. The story goes that in 1966 Italian coach builder Intermeccanica built a Mustang station wagon for advertiser Barney Clark and designer Bob Cumberford which showed up in many car magazines of the day. Supposedly Ford had a Mustang wagon in design stages around the same time but scrapped the program shortly after the Intermeccania cars appeared. The Intermeccania cars are often mistaken for a factory concept.

Are people not allowed to use profanity on SomethingAwful Forums?

Because I’m seeing posters say “poo poo” rather than shit, and I’m just like:

Dude, are there younger children on your site? Because I can’t really think of any other reason for using these words (other than you making the conscious choice to not curse, then that’s fine).

go gently caress yourself

i had to laugh when i got an angry call from a local politician who thought i called him a “poo poo head” in a thread about what a shit-eating piece of garbage he is. he used my forum name over the phone as if that gave him some rumplestiltskinian “true name” power

in your eyes were all the colors that the rainbow forgot
your wingspan was three feet wide or better
with your voice practicing notes from time’s own beginning
you took apart the alphabet letter by letter
