Michael Moore Belittles President Obama’s Impact on American History

https://movies.yahoo.com/news/michael-moore-slams-obama-history-only-remember-were-211803862.html

So controversial mockumentry filmmaker Michael Moore says that President Obama will “only be known as the first black president” in 100 years. Aw, shut the hell up, Michael Moore. Way to lessen the impact of such a monumental step for minorities. Why don’t you go steal from them some more and feed that fat ugly ass of yours.

Need For Asian Superheroes

This article by Jeff Yang kinda gets it half-way. We don’t need Asian Superheroes for EVERYONE, just for those who consume superhero culture.

It turns out, America did have a superhero called The Green Turtle back in 1940s, but because of anti-Chinese stuff in the day, was never allowed to reveal his identity.

Unfortunately, it just seems like they’re digging through the dumpster to validate themselves here. The Green Turtle might as well be played by Dana Carvey in yellowface. It’s such an old characterization. No modern Asian American can relate to it. As a piece of history, maybe it’s worth noting, but it definitely isn’t relevant anymore.

My own Asian superhero, Agent S, which debut in my alma mater student newspaper UW-Green Bay The Fourth Estate, is set in the present. I combined all the popular American superheroes to date into the archetype. And I also infused it with highly political charged imagery to leave the door open for interpretation and growth. And I’d also set my character in the real world, where Superman, Batman, and James Bond are indeed fictional, and wannabes are lunging off rooftops thinking those characters are real. That’s how I would do my hero justice.

In summary, only those who feel they need Asian superheroes should get them. And if no one gives them that validation, do what I did, come up with your own. That’s the only way they can truly be bulletproof.

Usually, I don’t post about this shit because History is boring to me. BUT, because I was going to make a point, I need to post the reference materials.

In summary, Uncle Joe rambles about how America succeeded and became united because it built roads and networks which strengthened its infrastructure. This included the man-made canals used to transport goods downstream, the train and railroad system, then the Interstate highways systems. Things progress because we make it easier to pass goods between ourselves.

So, to my point, we better start investing in those Lego islands that Google/CIA were plotting to popularize then.

I had this idea I was going to put into my Agent S epic story, if I ever get to writing it down, where we built this HUGE artificial highway/key islands that stretch from the West Coast of the United States all the way to China. So for those who have a lot of time to spare, they can literally travel that road, the road less traveled versus airplane.

And of course, people can rent some of those Lego lots, and that’s where you can raise crops and other important resources. You can have vendors along THE GREAT ROAD and gasoline and shit. Because people will have to drive for however many months or years, I don’t know the exact time, but if that’s what it takes, that’s what it takes.

The only thing I foresee is that pirates and other terrorists might try to takeover some of those floating Lego island properties, but our civilization would have evolved enough to handle that. There would be Coast Guard or some new organization to deal with that.

So, yeah, if you order something from China, it comes to the USA by boat. And that takes like 2 months!!! Of course, if your parcel was by plane, it’ll be a little faster.

BUT, if there were goods on a floating Lego like island between China and the USA, guess what, your goods would take half the time to get to you. How’s that for logic?

Would you eat cattle raised on a floating Lego island? Leave your comments and questions.

Evolution of Computer Programming Terminology and Concepts

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it applies. Object-oriented programming has been implemented since the 1960s, so that’s 50 years of efficient practice. But could it be even more advanced? (more…)
