So apparently at Sacramento State University an anthropology course focusing on intersectionalism can take the place of good old History 101. [quote]As it stands, the anthropology class will reportedly focus on “the intersection of race, class, gender, ethnicity and sexuality; the political econo...

Is the Marvel Cinematic Universe Too Big? - PurpleandGold Motown
Don't get me wrong. I like that the world is complex. I like they don't feel the need to retell the origins anymore, but has it gotten a little too big? I took my nephew to see Avengers today, and I found I couldn't just lean back and enjoy the movie. I was trying to remember all the little subpl...

Could a Matriarchy Succeed? - PurpleandGold Motown
Patriarchy=Bad Right? We need to get rid of the evil patriarchy that's oppressing all these women, people of color and other sundry minorities, keeping these special little snowflakes from reaching new heights. It's systemic. We don't even know we are part of the patriarchy. It's inescap...

Israel Airlifts Their Babies Out of Nepal - PurpleandGold Motown
So, apparently, Israeli couples pay surrogates in Nepal to birth their babies -- cause it's cheaper. They are coming for their babies. [link=(http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2015/04/27/babies-surrogates-nepal/26441685/)]Article[/link] [quote]Among those rescued from the aftermath ...

Aid to Nepal - PurpleandGold Motown
The US authorized $1 Million in disaster relief aid to Nepal following Saturday's devastating earthquake. As a nation, we aren't required to give anything at all, but as human's, as Americans, we often feel a moral obligation to help when help is needed. BUT... In comparison to the "aid we...

WH Correspondents Dinner - PurpleandGold Motown
What is this shit? Every cable news network is carrying this live. Almost a thousand people died in an earthquake and this back slapping session occupies every network? Misplaced priorities. Eta: the death toll is at almost 2000 now. ...

Auto dim fluid is no joke - PurpleandGold Motown
Some a-hole hit my door mirror and broke it. I saw it. Cussed a bit. Drove home. Apparently mirrors have a highly caustic fluid in them. It sinks into paint. I now have brown streaks going down the side of my car that look like dip spit. Guess I'm heading to the body shop today. frick....

My Old High School Wants Its Own Police Force - PurpleandGold Motown
So, I graduated from a pretty sheltered Christian school just south of Birmingham, AL. We excelled in athletics and academics. All in all, it was a good school, but there was no tolerance for moral slip ups. If you were caught drinking at a party on the weekends, if someone saw you smoking a cigaret...

Nicaraguan Canal Splits Country in Two - PurpleandGold Motown
[link=(https://youtu.be/K9vui6al9aQ)]Video[/link] The video is approximately 9 minutes long, but it's worth a watch. Nicaragua was my home for a little over a year. It's an infuriating, aneurysm causing, beautiful country. Yes, it's very poor, but it doesn't deserve what the Chinese and the Or...

Sleep Studys Suck - PurpleandGold Motown
Possible the worst night's sleep ever. When did hospitals lose the ability to give patients drugs? Cover someone with wires and electrodes from head to toe, say we're going to be watching you while you sleep and then cut the lights out at 9:30 but don't give them so much as a glass of warm milk....

Woodlawn or Remember the Titans Part 2 - PurpleandGold Motown
Strong Christian OVERTONES! In all honesty, it doesn't look bad and for the little amount of screen time given in the preview, John Voight looks to do a decent job playing Coach Bryant. And I've known Caleb Castille since he was about 10. I'll probably go see it. [link=(https://youtu.be/...

Anyone Else Suffer from Somnophobia (Fear of Sleep)? - PurpleandGold Motown
It doesn't affect me all the time, but there will be days -- sometimes weeks -- when I have an overwhelming fear of falling asleep. Fear might be misstating it. I have a compulsion to fight sleep. Not sure why. Even if I take an Ambien or Valium I will wake myself up with 30-45 minutes of dozing...

SJW Threaten Batgirl Artist -- Cover Yanked - PurpleandGold Motown
So, a commemorative variant cover has been yanked -- at the artist's request -- because he received threats from SJWs due to the cover's provocative (triggering) subject matter. The cover in question is an homage to the "Killing Joke" arc where the Joker rapes, shoots and paralyzes Barbara Gordon...

Opinion on Zeihan's Accidental Superpower? - PurpleandGold Motown
[quote]Peter Zeihan begins “The Accidental Superpower” by declaring that he has “always loved maps.” From this unremarkable claim springs a lively, readable thesis on how the success or failure of nations may rest on the very ground beneath their feet. Rather than focusing on charismatic leaders or ...
