    Well, that's why it's a bootleg.  I make no guarantees that it'll work like the real thing.

    I can't actually remember what I did now, but I think it was something like reducing the color palette to the point where everything looked dither-y

    ...it does?
  • The real humor of Political cartoons is that people still care about politics.
  • imagei will watch the heck outta this pumpkin patch
    because politics often have life and death consequences

    real hilarious

    oh my mistake, you're not a human being so outside environmentalist debates you're laughing

    really i don't mean to sour the mood here and i'm aware that a great deal of what goes on in politics is just mindless insult slinging and filibustering by privileged people who care only about their own careers

    but the results of their actions have real world consequences for everybody so i do hope you'll pardon me for caring quite a bit edit: no i don't really hope anything of the kind, the truth is i actually do care and i guess it just irritates me to be made fun of like that and all of a sudden i'm not sure why i'm making a big deal out of this, and in this thread of all places?

    i'm sorry, it's been a long day

    Also, I don't see you guys caring to much about the Chameleon power struggles or the Frilled Lizard elections.
  • imagei will watch the heck outta this pumpkin patch
    yeah but i'm not laughing at chameleons for caring about them

    it's serious stuff if you're a chameleon

    i don't even know if chameleons have power struggles, and i'm pretty sure frilled lizards don't have elections

    i don't know that much about lizards, they are not common around here
  • You have a good point.

    Those that are affected have a good reason to care.

    Just because I might not find something to be important doesn't mean that you shouldn't care.
  • imagei will watch the heck outta this pumpkin patch
    Thank you.  i'm sorry for being a grouch.

    The termite article was interesting.  Nice contrast to the familiar 'nature red in tooth and claw' model at the end there.
  • "It is a matter of grave importance that Fairy tales should be respected.... Whosoever alters them to suit his own opinions, whatever they are, is guilty, to our thinking, of an act of presumption, and appropriates to himself what does not belong to him." -- Charles Dickens

    Why care about politics if you're powerless? I mean all you have is one vote out of tens of millions, and any law that elected representatives pass can be overturned by the Supreme Court.

    If you really care, you could become a politician yourself, or a law professor and try to popularize the position that some laws you do't like are unconstitutional, but for ordinary citizens, quietism is rational.

    i think it's rational to pay some attention in case new developments will affect you

    or from a moral standpoint, if they will affect people or things that you care about, especially if it's something negative and you can do something about its effects

    and i don't honestly think we're powerless.  in the big picture, yeah, but that doesn't mean we can't influence things by e.g. writing to MPs and signing petitions

    “His thoughts were red thoughts, and his teeth were white.”
    ^^ On the other hand, the collective vote is made up of tens of millions of individual votes, and if enough people think like that, then they ensure that a smaller, less representative pool within the greater public has electoral power—a pool that most likely represents a very specialised set of interests with no intention of compromise. Which is how you get the mess that we have today, I think.

    tbh i've thought, only semi-seriously, about getting properly, actively involved in politics, as in, as a career choice, but i really don't think i'd be even slightly suited to it

    you need a certain amount of charisma, a large amount of nerve, and a spotless internet footprint
  • “His thoughts were red thoughts, and his teeth were white.”
    I have also considered it, although I doubt that my Internet footprint could be considered "spotless."
  • kill living beings
    at first i was unpleasantly surprised that that article wasn't about the democratic character of colony decisions and secondly i was pleasantly surprised that despite that the underlying trope of ruling queens (they actually don't of course) it was a neat article
  • I keep forgetting which one is the liberals and which one is the conservatives.
  • "well ok, no dragon girls, that's a dealbreaker" ~imicow
    The liberals are the ones telling everyone to work together to find food and expand the colony while the conservatives are the ones telling everyone to be ever wary of their fellow termites and prepared to fight for succession just in case the mating pair should suddenly die off.

    ^ There.  That one's so bootleg there's not even an image.

    Obviously It represents Pac-Man, having escaped from the video game world and decided to come after us for not paying our rent last month

    I chuckled at that one. It actually seems like a real political cartoon.
