Why Vegeta is a Better Father than Goku
Alternate title: Suck it, Kakarot.

The Dragon Ball Super: Broly anime comic adaptation is now out overseas. Aside from some eye-catching (and colorful!) artwork recreating the Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie experience on the page, the anime comic has the added appeal of a bonus Q&A withDragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama!

Out of the all of the interesting insights that Toriyama shared for this Q&A, the one that seems to be resonating the most with fans is no doubt the conversation about Saiyan parenting technique, and how it relates to Goku and Vegeta in this Dragon Ball Super era.

Here's the quote from Toriyama, regarding why Saiyans may struggle to be good fathers:

"Innately, Saiyans place emphasis on increasing the number of strong people in their race, so bonds between parent and child aren't all that strong. King Vegeta and Paragus aim to use their sons to fulfill their own pride and ambitions, respectively, while Bardock, unusually for a Saiyan and more similarly to Earthlings, seems to have just a bit of fondness for his son. Come to think ot it, Goku doesn't seem to think about his children all that much."

The moderator of the Q&A then describes how this topic slide into side-conversation, in which Toriyama addresses why Vegeta has, surprisingly, become a doting and caring father. In Toriyama's assessment, It is the presence of Bulma in Vegeta's life that has made all the difference.

That's a fair point to make - especially when comparing Vegeta's parenting to Goku's. Chi-Chi is a duitful wife and mother for sure, but she's also a hardcore dragon lady. Forcing Goku to be affectionate is definitely not on Chi-Chi's agenda - nor is looking glam or sexy to keep things spicy with her man. Bulma is the exact opposite: Dragon Ball Super: Brolyreveals that she's gone so far as to use the Dragon Balls to de-age herself every so often, so that she can still look fit and fine as she ages. Dragon Ball Super has certainly snuck in the hints that she and Vegeta still have a spicy love life, and the Saiyan prince's appreciation of his wife and kids fueled him to his greatest power-up yet in the Tournament of Power.

The responsibility for a Saiyan's family ties doesn't just rest on the kind of wife he has, though. Bardock made his own choice to love his son Kakarot enough to send him away (and therein saved the universe). Perhaps Goku just needs to pay closer attention to how the other Saiyan dads around him are doing things...

Alyssa Milano Calls for “Sex Strike”
Former Charmed actress Alyssa Milano called for a sex strike claiming that “our reproductive rights are being erased.”

Milano took to Twitter, where she wrote, “Our reproductive rights are being erased. Until women have legal control over our own bodies we just cannot risk pregnancy. JOIN ME by not having sex until we get bodily autonomy back. I’m calling for a #SexStrike. Pass it on.”

Milano’s tweet was openly mocked by many.

[Krimjob Note: Find the reply tweets on the original article linked above, just way to much shit to include in raw text]

Milano’s call for a sex strike comes after Georgia governor Brian Kemp signed the pro-life heartbeat bill. Before signing the bill, Kemp stated, “Georgia is a state that values life. We stand up for those who are unable to speak for themselves.” He added, “But our job is to do what is right, not what is easy. We will not back down. We will always continue to fight for life.”

The bill reads in part:

“It shall be the policy of the State of Georgia to recognize the presence of a fetal heartbeat as the point of “fetal viability,” creating a compelling state interest to protect “the independent essence of the second life” as an “object of state protection” from abortion; and

It shall be the policy of the State of Georgia to recognize unborn children as natural persons.”

Westworld actress Evan Rachel Wood would call for “mandatory vasectomies” until men are ready to have children in response to the bill being signed.

Milano had been actively campaigning against the bill. In fact, she lead a number of celebrities in calling for Hollywood film studios to boycott the entire state of Georgia if the bill was signed into law. Some of those celebrities included Avengers: Endgame actors Mark Ruffalo, Don Cheadle, and Tessa Thompson.

In an open letter calling for Hollywood to boycott Georgia, Milano described the bill as “evil.”

“We can’t imagine being elected officials who had to say to their constituents ‘I enacted a law that was so evil, it chased billions of dollars out of our state’s economy.”

Hollywood does a ton of business in Georgia. Atlanta-based AJC reports in Fiscal Year 2018 there were 455 productions that did “$2.7 billion in direct spending.” They noted this was the most productions “since the tax credits were passed in 2008.”

Georgia provides film and TV productions with up to a 30 percent tax credit if they spend at least $500,000 in the state.

The Walking Dead, Avengers: Infinity War, Black Panther, Avengers: Endgame, Ozark, and more all have or had a production home in Georgia.

What do you make of Alyssa Milano’s call for a sex strike? Do you think it is a good idea?

Royal Mail is investigating fake stamps featuring Diane Abbott's face which are apparently making their way through the postal network.

An anonymous man claiming to be a London postman shared images of the red stamps - one of which was franked - with several news outlets.

It comes after Abbott, MP for Hackney North and Stoke Newington, became an internet sensation after she was seen sipping a canned mojito on a London tube train last month.

The Labour shadow home secretary later apologised for enjoying the alcoholic beverage on public transport.

The anonymous postie said the fake stamps were probably a "lighthearted stunt" despite it being a serious offence to send them.

They told the Hackney Gazette: "I have spotted what apparently nobody else has... there's a Diane Abbott stamp making it through the mail.

"Obviously it's a serious offence to send fraudulent stamps through the mail, though I feel this might be a lighthearted stunt."

But Royal Mail has said it is looking into the counterfeit stamps and is hoping to prosecute those behind them.

A spokesperson said: "It is a crime to create or use counterfeit stamps. Royal Mail takes the necessary steps to protect stamp revenues which help fund the universal postal service which serves the UK's 30 million households and businesses.

"We will seek to prosecute where we find someone has created counterfeit stamps or knowingly sold used stamps for re-use. This matter is being investigated by our security team."

Sky News has contacted Ms Abbott for comment.

I don't even begin to understand the logic. The moment you hold an aspect of your relationship hostage to a demand like that you are telling the other person random political causes are more important to the relationship.

There are less obnoxious ways to break up with someone...

The ADL help the big tech to silence the voices right of Mao. However, the big tech should stop to go to bed with the ADL if some scandals hit the ADL like it had hit the SPLC.
https://bigleaguepolitics.com/anti-defamation-league-admits-colluding-with-tech-giants-to-facilitate-big-brother-censorship/ ( http://archive.ph/jPOHs )
With pro-Trump voices being booted from Facebook and the social media crackdown ramping up before 2020, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is bragging about the legwork they have done to build up to this moment.
The ADL, once considered an admirable pro-Jewish organization that combated anti-Semitism, has turned into a partisan political censor facilitating Big Brother and trying to stifle President Donald Trump’s ‘America First’ agenda.
They admitted as much during a summit with the uber-globalist Council on Foreign Relations earlier this year where the organization’s leader bragged about enabling the tech giants’ push for extreme Draconian censorship.
“We work with Google on using AI to try and interrupt cyber-hate before it happens,” said Jonathan A. Greenblatt, Chief Executive Officer and National Director of the ADL, about his organization’s trailblazing work in the field of Orwellian pre-crime.

“We work with YouTube to get them to change their algorithms so it lessens the likelihood that a young person is going to run into some of these anti-Semitic conspiratorial videos,” he added.
Greenblatt brought up Facebook specifically and how the ADL enables the tech giant’s ability to manipulate information for the purposes of combating alleged hate. He deployed double-speak to justify his organization’s anti-constitutional push.
“So there are different ways [Facebook] can tweak their algorithms and adjust their products so they think not only about free speech… but protect the user’s right to not be harassed or hated,” he said.
He was particularly laudatory toward Facebook in how they were a front-runner in leading the charge toward Big Brother.

Agree'd. Relationships are about communication and cooperation, you're essentially picking the teammate you'll have for the rest of your life. Sexual blackmail is f'ed as all hell. It's up there with partners who blackmail their significant other using their income as a means.

At least fun to see her get tons of shit for it from both sides.

COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. (WESH/NBC News) -- A bobcat that somehow found itself perched on top of a utility pole along Florida's Interstate 75 is back on the ground.

The bobcat was spotted atop the pole Thursday morning.

Wildlife officials originally planned to wait for the animal to climb down on its own, but eventually utility crews were called in and a lineman used a bucket truck and pole to give the cat an encouraging nudge.

I'm wavy, bitch.

Fuckin' cats, man. I don't know if that could exactly be called a "rescue" since all they did was poke him with a stick until he got pissed off. The only time my cat got somewhere he honest-to-god couldn't escape on his own was when he fell behind the fridge and was too fat to get out.
