On The Real Fantasy of Downton Abbey

I think Thomas and Branson are "legit hot dudes."

On [A Joke About Things Not Rising]

They're already doing this because short nonfiction lends itself better to test-taking and the stultifying quantification of all learning as a way of exacting "standards" that entirely depreciates them. Leaving aside recent experiments about the unique effects of literary fiction on emotional acuity, the fact that some instructors teach the novel ineptly (and presumably would teach nonfiction ineptly too)is no argument for not doing so at all. Why should teenagers' tastes be pandered to? Why can't we try to expand their horizons instead of continually limiting them?

On "1913: A message in a bottle that reads From Titanic. Goodbye all washes ashore in Ireland"

@fondue with cheddar Tragedy + time= I think we're fine. Though now I'm wondering whether some of these messages, especially from famous maritime disasters, are fakes.

Also, Thackeray has a typo.

On Jimmy Stewart Character or Victorian Villain?

I appreciate the interesting conjunctions in this list, and thus will proceed to take it all too seriously. Several of those Victorian "villains" are questionable, and one is downright wrong (Henry Esmond!?). Also, Jimmy Stewart does not "forever" play the creep; the very reason that "Vertigo" was so jarring is that it played against his usually endearingly harmless persona ("Mr. Smith Goes to Washington," "Philadelphia Story," It's a Wonderful Life," even "Rear Window," etc.).

On Every Sperm Is More Sacred Than We Guessed

@Miss Maszkerádi Since I personally don't wish to be extinguished, I can't be cavalier about the mass extinction of future humans. It seems a bit hypocritical. Are humans also the only hypocritical animals?
