An Open Letter to Bill Maher from Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment

Mr. Maher: Comic books, like all literature, are storytelling devices. When written well by great creators such as Stan Lee, they make us feel, make us think and teach us lessons that hopefully make us better human beings. One lesson Stan taught so many of us was tolerance and respect, and thanks to that message, we are grateful that we can say you have a right to your opinion that comics are childish and unsophisticated. Many said the same about Dickens, Steinbeck, Melville and even Shakespeare.

But to say that Stan merely inspired people to “watch a movie” is in our opinion frankly disgusting. Countless people can attest to how Stan inspired them to read, taught them that the world is not made up of absolutes, that heroes can have flaws and even villains can show humanity within their souls. He gave us the X-Men, Black Panther, Spider-Man and many other heroes and stories that offered hope to those who felt different and bullied while inspiring countless to be creative and dream of great things to come.

These are but a few of the things we the fans of Stan Lee also consider “adulting,” because life both as a child and grown-up can indeed be a struggle. Stan is the author of millions of happy childhood memories and the provider of so many of the positive tools of adulthood.

Our shock at your comments makes us want to say “‘Nuff said, Bill,” but instead we will rely on another of Stan’s lessons to remind you that you have a powerful platform, so please remember: “With great power there must also come – great responsibility!”

-Team Stan

So I did the steamlink thing onto my phone, which is so-so (probably way better with a tablet). Then I put it on my native fire tv (toshiba 4k one). Works like a charm. The steam controller is still a bit janky and I should probably get an x-box 1 s or whatever it is that’s hype for the couch-playing, but this is pretty sweet. I also had a steam-link, but this is better in theory because 4k instead of 1080p and slightly less hardware/steps. Everything is hardwired on ethernet so I’m not dealing with any wifi problems people have with this.

Edit: Solved my problem thanks to this post. https://www.reddit.com/r/Steam_Link/comments/932m7n/current_status_of_steamcontroller_compatibility/

I’d still get an x-box controller if I was buying new. And I believe you can get away with the firetv dongle. IMHO a pretty nice way to home theater pc across a distance with just the one pc. Bluetooth mouse and keyboard should work equally well I think.

This reminds me that the things that so many people consider relaxing, like mindfulness, meditation, ASMR, etc… do the exact opposite and actually make me incredibly anxious, sometimes to the point of a mild panic attack. Not sure why.

In the Ballad of Buster Scruggs does a legitimate “Look Ye Mighty” reference while technically still a western film.

Remember how we were talking about the Border control agent who started a huge wildfire in Arizona with his gender reveal party, and I speculated that it was because the tannerite-and-cornstarch typically used in those gender reveal party explosives formed a fuel air bomb?

They released the video, and I was bang on. The flame front and smoke colour - while hard to see because the video is a bit hitchy - is practically identical to a typical cornstarch fuel-air explosion.


#2582

Wow. I presumed that the fire was an accident because something hot or burning managed to fly super far away from the explosion and set afire some distant dry grass. But no. They set up the exploding thing RIGHT ON THE DRY GRASS LIKE RIGHT THERE LIKE ANY SPARK OR HEAT COULD HAVE SET THAT OFF OMG.


#2583

I assume the border control Jamoke figured it would be fine, because tannerite is normally a very “clean” explosive, very fast burning and self-consuming, all force and smoke and practically no spreading flame. Here’s a slowmo to show what I mean -

Of course, normally tannerite also doesn’t have a bunch of highly flammable cornstarch powder with it, and I’m pretty sure wouldn’t have bothered to check the packaging, which would have almost certainly had some sort of warning on it.
