Paedophiles could be stripped of parental rights under new law
  • The problem with schemes like this is that they imagine a world where the now orphaned kid gets adopted into a loving Hallmark movie home. The reality is that they will end up in foster care where the abuse and neglect will continue, just at the hands of strangers. Or mom will shack up with the next abuser and the dad will have no ability to intervene. Better to leave them with their biological parent who, while a complete scumbag, at least has genetic similarity to hopefully check their worst excesses.

    TL;DR - fix the social safety net instead of dumb feel good laws like this one.

  • Aaron Rodgers says AIDS was created by the U.S. government in the 1980s
  • Who cares what he thinks? He’s famous for mastering the art of spiral throwing a ball, which is a skill perfected by cavemen using spears to hunt with. He is no smarter or more educated than those cavemen were. In fact way less so due to the brain damage.

  • How does South Park get away with trashing identifiable people? Are they sued often?
  • Yep that one is true as well. Paul is a vegetarian and didn’t want a song about non vegetarian food. He didn’t have a problem with parody in general, just that specific instance. Geez, I know way too much trivia about Weird Al :)

    Edit: the song was created just never released.

  • How does South Park get away with trashing identifiable people? Are they sued often?
  • That he does. The only snafu he had was with Coolio for Gangster’s Paradise. Apparently the label said yes but didn’t actually check with Coolio and he wasn’t happy about it. Weird Al apologized for the mixup and they made peace with it later. Weird Al said the only star that has consistently turned him down was Prince, who didn’t find the whole parody thing funny.

  • What are some movies with notable director's commentary?
  • This is Spinal Tap. The cast does the commentary in character, as if they’d just discovered many years later that Rob Reiner was making fun of them rather than it being the serious documentary they thought it was. They spend the whole movie talking shit about him and it’s hilarious.

    Anvil: the Story of Anvil. Such a touching movie by itself, the commentary by the director, a childhood friend of the band, adds more depth and pathos to the story. My wife and I watched the movie and then rewatched it immediately with the commentary even though it was past midnight and we would normally be in bed. The story is just that gripping.

    Second the mention of Tropic Thunder made in another comment. RDJ improvising the whole commentary in character is amazing and will increase your estimation of him as an actor, if that’s even possible.
