I think it's safe to assume that any linguist who doesn't recognize his contribution to the field by now shouldn't be in the field, much like a biologist who scoffs at Darwin. He is actually that important to linguistic theory. His critics are generally strict ideologues who claim the human mind has no innate programming. And they always strawman Chomsky's theory as an essentialist theory. It's not. Chomsky argues that language is procedurally generated from the interaction between a basic ruleset and experience.

These people are the "scientific" creationists of their field.

Noam Chomsky seems kinda love-him-or-hate-him, in both of the fields he's active in. There are linguists who think he should stick to politics and political thinkers who think he should stick to linguistics. I don't know how many people are knowledgeable enough about both to have an informed opinion about his work in both fields, though.

Yeah, that's kind of different than "hating him" though, which is what I was talking about.

Similarly, we know that Darwin didn't have all the details right. Neither did Mendel. But, biologists don't go around acting pissed off at Darwin or write books explaining how dumb his ideas were.

I've never seen a good argument for this. Just seems like an anarchist disagreeing with an anarchist and then painting him as 'not anarchist enough'.

Cut for Time: Wedding Toast - SNL

Why the hell was this cut? This was absolutely hilarious, Mulaney’s reactions were gold

Goddammit, SNL just cut the best thing Luke's ever done. C'mon, guys, you just want him to fail, don't you?

beep “Hi Mom...Dad...it’s me Luke. You know it hasn’t been easy for me, this past year at SNL, but tonight they are finally giving me my shot! I’m in a GREAT skit - it KILLED at dress. It’s hilarious. And get this...I get to SING! You’ll be so proud of me. Please watch this week. I can’t wait to hear what you think! Ok. Got to run. Love you both. Bye.”

Would have taken this over the Horns sketch

Maybe he just made it. Nothing else to it.

“He knows he’s got a My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy [by Kanye West] in him, but he’s closer to younger artists like Earl Sweatshirt and Chance the Rapper in spirit, and that’s exciting,” music critic Bianca Mendez wrote about RM’s work in Noisey.

Thank you, writer-nim. I wish Namjoon's artistry get appreciated as much as his leader qualities and language skills.

Whenever I read that story about him telling his parents about him wanting to be a rapper, I can just imagine what they thought about their genius IQ level son with stellar scores wanting to do music. I'm happy he got their support.

Short but effective. And some points were made. RM2 is gonna blow everything wide open for RM, I feel it in my bones.

Gosh who chose these pictures? The first pic of them at the AMAs literally has JK and Yoongi levitating in the air while Jimin does... something and Honi literally looks like those cartoon scared faces :O and the second one you can’t even see Namjoon 😂 good read though

Not technically a Shockwave, but still pretty cool

Would’ve looked epic if he’d come down w his fist and punched the the trampoline

The way that ice comes back up in the center is pretty cool, didn't expect that.

Good. Good. Now finish him.

You know, sometimes I wish I did a little more with my life instead of hanging out in front of places selling weed and shit. Like, maybe be an animal doctor. Why not me? I like seals and shit. Or maybe an astronaut. Yeah. Like, be the first motherfucker to see a new galaxy, or find a new alien lifeform... and fuck it. And people'd be like, "There he goes. Homeboy fucked a Martian once.

Seeing Widowmaker done up in makeup makes me want to fuck an alien.

don't ruin this for me

Windowmaker.

Pretty sure the skin is photoshopped.

to know about Street Sharks.

Jawsome!

Yes! Also this reminds me of some toys I used to have.. they were like the street sharks I think but all kinds of animals. Cats and dogs on rollerblades and skate boards. I can’t for the life of me remember what they were called. Anyone?
