Too bad Spider-Man isn’t in the same movie continuity ‘cause, y’know “Twin Petes”

And, yes, I could have saved that ship name for after ‘Age of Ultron’ when there will be two Quicksilvers, but is ‘Days of Future Past’ Quicksilver even a twin?

Defendant Bessinger further contends that the Act violates his freedom of religion under the First Amendment “since his religious beliefs compel him to oppose any integration of the races whatever.”[…]It is unquestioned that the First Amendment prohibits compulsion by law of any creed or the practice of any form of religion, but it also safeguards the free exercise of one’s chosen religion. The free exercise of one’s beliefs, however, as distinguished from the absolute right to a belief, is subject to regulation when religious acts require accommodation to society.

Let US Be Your Supernova

John Oliver:

The “American Dream” is clear. It’s catching something from a t-shirt cannon. …What exactly is the “Indian Dream”? Is it just the concept of upward mobility?

Fareed Zakaria:

Yeah, you know, the truth is that when you hear about this – whether it’s the Indian Dream or the Chinese Dream – they’re all really just the American Dream. The American Dream was the idea that you will do better than your parents.

John Oliver:

We franchised it!

Fareed Zakaria:

Exactly.

John Oliver:

That’s it.

Fareed Zakaria:

But it is like a supernova. Just as it’s catching on everywhere else, it’s imploding here at home.

John Oliver:

[laughing] …Why does every analogy you use have to be so appallingly negative?

Fareed Zakaria:

This is HBO, isn’t it?

John Oliver:

That’s true.

Fareed Zakaria:

We’re testing the limits.

John Oliver:

That’s right…it’s not TV. It’s appallingly negative.

This joke, had it been in ‘Loaded Weapon,’ would have been the most effective parody of early-to-mid-90s Scarface resurgence convergence with the national obsession with Sharon Stone’s vagina. Instead they chose a visual “pun” wrt beavers. Oh well, that’s that 20/20 hindsight.

Aniconism - Wikipedia

The practice of or belief in the avoiding or shunning of images of divine beings, prophets or other respected religious figures, or in different manifestations, any human beings or living creatures. The term aniconic may be used to describe the absence of graphic representations in a particular belief system, regardless of whether an injunction against them exists. The word itself derives from Greek εικων ‘image’ with the negative prefix an- (Greek privative alpha) and the suffix -ism (Greek -ισμος).

Law French - Wikipedia

The post-positive adjectives in many legal noun phrases in English—Attorney general, fee simple—is a heritage from Law French. Native speakers of French may not understand certain Law French terms not used in modern French or replaced by other terms: for example, the current French word for “mortgage" is hypothèque. Many of the terms of Law French were converted into modern English in the 20th century to make the law more understandable in common-law jurisdictions. However, some key Law French terms remain, including the following:

  • attorney ”appointed” (Old French atorné)
  • culprit Originally cul. prit, abbreviation of Culpable: prest (d’averrer nostre bille), meaning “guilty, ready (to prove our case)”
  • defendant “defending” (French défendant)
  • estoppel Anglo-Norman estoup(p)ail “plug, stopper, bung” prevention of a party from contradicting a position previously taken.
  • force majeure modern French, “superior force” clause in some contracts that frees parties from liability for acts of God
  • jury Anglo-Norman jurée “oath, legal inquiry”
  • laches Anglo-Norman lachesse “slackness, laxness” A court may refuse to hear a case not brought before it after a lengthy period since the right of action arose
  • larceny Anglo-Norman lar(e)cin “theft” theft of personal property
  • mortgage dead pledge (Old French mort gaige)
  • parole ”word” release of prisoners based on giving their word of honour to abide by certain restrictions.
  • plaintiff ”complaining” (from Old French plaintif)

The Girlfriendzone

[T]he word for the pining blame men place on women for their own unrequited feelings, or for how some men completely lose interest in women as people once it’s clear she’s not interested in them sexually. It’s something done by a man who was never interested in anything but a sexual relationship in the first place, and tried to use faux friendship as a way to achieve sexual ends.

Friend zoning, is, in broader terms, something bad that a guy who is not getting laid decides that the woman won’t fuck him is doing. It’s an incredibly self centered and self-pitying way to externalize one’s own mistakes or shortcomings, to blame the complex mystery of fickle human attraction on a woman’s agency, and makes about as much emotional sense as showing up to pick up your dry cleaning at 3 am and becoming so enraged that they’re not open that you throw a brick through the window [emphasis added].
