re: Supergirl vs Superman - Vander
[quote]Red Lantern Supergirl destroyed THREE Worldkillers (Doomsday-level villains) and is the only being in DC canon to ever remove a red power ring without dying.[/quote] If you want to include other versions, then there is literally a Superman that is God, as in he literally is the God of the ...

re: Supergirl vs Superman - Vander
[quote]Well, she is stronger than him in the comics. So they aren't straying too far from the comics by having her beat him in a slug out.[/quote] No she's not. She's roughly on par with Wonder Woman, who actually routinely wipes the floor with Supergirl. This was one author pushing an agenda, ...

re: Times of Israel: French Jews voted Macron at over 95% clip - Vander
[quote]Common theme? Paranoid loons who need to believe that everything going wrong in their particular corner of the world is being orchestrated by some nefarious group. Jews were almost always more successful, on average, in their adoptive countries than the average of "native" citizen. They were ...

re: Moldylocks referred to as a "victim" and lies during CBS interview. - Vander
[quote]It's amazing how this one girl has almost this entire board in a "collective" rustle jerk.[/quote] And you wonder why the right has begun to not give a shite about its radical elements just like the left. This attitude is why. ...

re: Gavin McInnes: Alt-right v. Alt-Lite - Vander
Liberal arguments always boil down to "feels", which is why their arguments only work if they are allowed to shut down debate using claims of racism, sexism, islamophobia, or transphobia. It is hilarious watching conservatives fall to these tactics time and time again though. Apparently principl...

re: Gavin McInnes: Alt-right v. Alt-Lite - Vander
[quote] he claims the label, but a lot of the message/ideals behind people claiming the "alt-right" wasn't white nationalism or anti-jew bull shite. now many who claim it do believe these things, which is why i am enjoying this distinction. it makes it more clear for all sides. people who mislabeled ...

re: White Student Union formed @ AU - Vander
[quote]No, I really don't. Texas A&M isn't city hall. Why should A&M allow everybody access to their facilities to spew their nonsense? What's your feeling about A&M students turning out in massive numbers to block the Westboro Baptist Church from protesting a funeral? Westboro Baptist Church su...

re: White Student Union formed @ AU - Vander
[quote]Define "major". I think it would be a pretty big deal at any Ivy League school, for example. The problem at A&M was they allowed anybody to speak in their facilities. And the administration initially spoke up for First Amendment rights, which made no sense to me. The rule has been changed...

re: is the beard & "man bun" fad dead yet? - Vander
[quote]So only rednecks and lumber jacks should have beards? LOL[/quote] If you're not lifting weights and you're not jacked, you should never have a beard. Fatasses and twinks just look like giant low T ****s trying to reclaim their lost masculinity. It's incredibly transparent and it's the ...

re: Americans need to step up their toilet hygiene - Vander
[quote]Strongly suspect that if people improved their diets, cleanup would be much simpler. The fatties in my office have constant shite spray thanks to their steady diet of Krispy Kreme and Wendy's. [/quote] This is true. I rarely have issues and my diet is generally pretty good. If you ea...

re: There is a new CrossFit doc 'Fittest on Earth: A Decade of Fitness' - Vander
[quote]Do they cover the test-e, anavar, tren, and igf supplement routines?[/quote] Yeah I was going to say. It's clear that "But the lives of these elite athletes are very different from the average gym-goer, and the documentary gives insight into the different ways these competitors try to get...

re: I'm sick of people saying the middle class is worse off than 4 decades ago. - Vander
[quote]I didn't assert they were equal. In fact, THAT is my point. You gain a GREAT DEAL MORE from this "necessary expense" today than you did in 1970. You'll notice that like I have been doing in this thread from the start, I'm not saying there aren't new expenses or that it isn't expensive. ...

re: I'm sick of people saying the middle class is worse off than 4 decades ago. - Vander
[quote]It's not either or man. If you're going to say, "I could have had this lower expense in 1970", then I'm going to point out, you could have had less benefit. I mean, your car is a necessity today but it sure as frick is a benefit too. If I have to explain that to you, go look at pics of...

re: I'm sick of people saying the middle class is worse off than 4 decades ago. - Vander
[quote]I should also point out that in 1970, the typical long distance rates amounted to about $17 an hour. Called your relatives 4 times per month or your kid at college? That likely meant you were pushing or breaking $100. in 1970 dollars! But hey, let's all just use the cherry picked numb...

[quote]So, in other words, you get A LOT more for your money now and life is made immensely easier. Thanks for helping.[/quote] What? No, that wasn't my point at all. My point was is that these two things are additional expenses that people did not have in the past. That is, you can add ce...

re: I'm sick of people saying the middle class is worse off than 4 decades ago. - Vander
[quote]Meh. You could say the same thing about air conditioning - but people did it for thousands of years. It CAN be done. It would just be pretty tough and inconvenient. That's an argument that folks get a net return on the expense. Doesn't make it not an expense - one that just a generation a...

re: Accurate Diagrams of Marriage and Divorce in the 21st Century - Vander
[quote]The insecurity of men and their mistakes of marrying before the age of 30 come out in these BS threads. Don't rush into having kids either. Take the first two years of marriage and travel and enjoy them. You've got plenty of time to have kids. [/quote] Additionally, if you get married and...
