Pumpkin Person rating 7 out of 10
I finally watched this movie!
I don’t know why it took me so long because I love Emma Thompson, I love Mindy Kaling, and I love TV talk show hosts, and this movie combines all three.
The film is about a brilliant British late night talk show host named Katherine (Emma Thompson) who is being fired from her job because declining ratings. Adding insult to injury, she is being replaced by a lower class low IQ male comic who relishes in vulgar bathroom fraternity boy humour, much like our very own Mug of Pee. Desperate to save her show from being taken over by such trash, she orders her assistant to hire a woman to provide a fresh perspective, and in comes Molly (Mindy Kaling). The white male writing team is appalled that Indian American Molly went from working at a chemical factory to writing for a major late night talk show.
“I wish I was a woman of color so I could get any job with no qualifications!” one of them bitterly says behind her back. But little do they know Molly is the perfect person for the job!
The film is kind of predictable and the characters are a little underdeveloped, but the dialogue is sharp and funny and Thompson and Kaling shine in their respective parts,. Now available on Netflix:
in tthe case of tthe US, even the presttige agencies are less competent tthan the mafia was in 1963. said:
and the other problem with “the cia did it” bullshit is…
even though the cia and fbi are the american kgb and criminal organizations…
they aren’t staffed by the smartest people. unlike the kgb. because smart people can make more money elsewhere…in the US…NOT in the soviet union.
as beria’s daughter said, “if my father had been an american he’d’ve been CEO of general motors.” GM was the biggest american company at the time.
in other words…if there were some complicated conspiracy it couldn’t’ve been done by the cia…maybe in 1963 the american mafia could’ve done it. (supposedly the american mafia is a dried out husk of what it used to be…IT intimidated j edgar hoover for fuck’s sake.)
the cia is not an organization of superhumans. my own uncle was recruited by them for fuck’s sake.

in reality, the bible is fucking fantastic literature just like the vedas and homer and all the athenians and etc…

i was thinking about how pill had a particularly severe case of AIDS and i thought…
the problem with all of these CLAIMED experiences (like my mom’s KNOWING her mom had died and the RESURRECTION)…
is they are NOT “intersubjectively testable/repeatable” BECAUSE they are (by nature) “one offs”.
how we all live in a stupid world where the mechanical universe is just taken for granted as…well of course…what’re you retarded?…as they say in boston.
YUGE METAPHYSICAL ASSUMPTION.

the very idea of “the cia” is retarded.
pill: but dulles.
mugabe: imagine the conversation…dulles calls his pipo into his office and says, “i have a cunning plan.” and his pipo say, “oo. i can’t wait to hear it. what is it my master?” dulles says, “we’re gonna kill the president.”
now do a gedankenexperiment in autism and flip dulles to marcello and his pipo to marcello’s pipo.
autism 101: why is the former ridiculous and the latter believable?
this is something i learned long after hs...girls dig tall...up to 6'3". said:
john wayne is the paradigm of “masculinity” in the US.
it’s interesting how so many of those male stars in black and white/on the silver screen were tall even by today’s standard.
but i also think that they were some kind of platonic ideal such that even today when everyone is taller…taller than them is not as sexy…for example washington and jefferson were both like 6’3″.
add to my list women!
sadly, brando was only 5’11″…supposedly.
peck is interesting because he also had a pretty boy face and an oprah level voice.
but he became a star because he was from socal.
if he’d been from anywhere else he’d’ve just lived and died and been sexy…no one would care except his family.

Never seen enough of it to have an opinion.
The Philosopher said:
The conspiracies I’ve said are true aren’t ‘rube goldberg devices’. They’re pretty straightforward. Podesta’s emails are what they are. Read them. Him and his brothers have paintings and sculptures of naked children in their houses. JFK fired Dulles and tried to humble the CIA and he got removed. Jews control the mass media even when those organisations are started by gentiles. etc etc
You’re the one who believes in the complicated and weird theories that Floyd wasn’t murdered even though its on tape and the guy at the mortuary said it was homicide and the jury also decided it was homicide and your the one still clinging to Alex Jones saying the tape was faked and jury were Mossad etc
Look, you believe in the resurrection of Jesus so youre reasoning is comparable to a child.
have paintings and sculptures of naked children in their houses
So the Pizza-Gaters claim but I’ve seen no credible reports.
“You’re the one who believes in the complicated and weird theories that Floyd wasn’t murdered even though its on tape and the guy at the mortuary said it was homicide and the jury also decided it was homicide and your the one still clinging to Alex Jones saying the tape was faked and jury were Mossad etc”
It’s not about whether or not the knee on his neck killed him, it’s whether it would have killed him had Floyd not been on fentanyl and sick with covid, and the method of restraint was apparently a valid and taught one for the Minneapolis PD. If you’re going to accuse someone of homicide you have to actually prove their actions were intended to cause homicide.
I think we can all agree that Floyd basically dug his own grave with his life choices.
I doubt the tape was fake, but what is definitely true is that way too much evidence has been either withheld or misconstrued in basically all of the major BLM related cases. Kind of makes you paranoid in general.
how is it possible for pipo tto be so stupid they think floyd was killed by the cops? said:
of course the tape wasn’t fake retard! it’s 100% real!
but the tape does NOT show what you think it shows.
pill/peepee: how can that be? you sound retarded.
all you have to do to know this is watch ALL the tape recorded on popo bodycams.
or watch the trial.
bottom line: chauvin was trying to save floyd’s life…(or the whole thing was an “op”.)
this was obvious with video and info that came out a few days after the event…not just in the trial.
obviously it depends on the poll. said:
G. Robert Blakey, chief counsel for the House Select Committee on Assassinations from 1977 to 1979, said: “The most plausible explanation for the murder of Oswald by Jack Ruby was that Ruby had stalked him on behalf of organized crime, trying to reach him on at least three occasions in the forty-eight hours before he silenced him forever.”
"most plausible" does not mean "craziest" or "most ridiculous". said:
notice the qualification “most plausible”.
PP, do you know what an IQ of 137 by Mexican norms is by U.S. White norms? This is supposedly what the drug kingpin “El Chapo” scored
Assuming Mexico & the U.S. have similar SDs, it would be about 125.
What’s your source for the score?
Source is some guy on Discord. Not a good source but I’ll look for a better one later tonight
Look up “el chapo iq 138” (not 137 as I said earlier). There are many mentions of it, but I can’t find an original, reliable-looking source. Maybe it’s in Spanish?

my own mother is a total “naturalist” but is 100% certain she had esp ONCE…when her own mother died. she was in brazil. her mother was in alabama.
what does she say about it? my experience was part of nature. just a part which is derided by “the scientific community”.
fichte, schelling, hegel all in on the con? or just trying to say the un-sayable? said:

and then it congratulates itself because all the 20th century french fakers.
hegel is very hard to understand…so is fichte…so is schelling…so is kant…all except kant even harder than heidegger…but why?
because deliberately obscure?
reasons to believe no. unlike french pipo.

I wonder why height is correlated positively with IQ but robustness isn’t. Obviously, the stress on organs is a problem with a large body and if you have a larger/faster brain it’s going to require more work from your organs. So a smaller body would be a good offset for a larger brain (but of course, where do those organs go in a smaller body)? But mainly I wonder why height, which has to fight against gravity, would be easier on a body than growing sideways.
A hilarious possibility is that the height added by a larger brain is simply what causes all the correlation between height and IQ. So someone with the exact same body but a brain an inch taller (which would imply obviously the other dimensions are bigger) would be many SDs more intelligent, thereby creating a small measured correlation overall.

it’s just that pipo want to believe there’s some trade off between brains and brawn…
the smartest pipo in terms of IQ test scores are also physically superior.
There is some tradeoff. Muscles are expensive to build, though their maintenance is negligible in comparison, the fact that muscular system adapts both with hypertrophy (and hyperplasia) when sufficient stimulus is applied, and is subjected to atrophy whenever there’s insufficient stimulus for muscle maintenance, implies muscles are in some how expensive. If there’s energy that could be used to build muscle, that’s energy that’s being taken away from the brain.
This is a very long winded way of saying muscles are expensive but so is the nervous system. Humans did get bigger but we’re not as strong as our recent ancestors.
I think it’s a mistake to assume the ability of visceral organs to work in general limits a healthy person’s cognitive ability. Our ability to acquire nutrients is important, and organs do provide that, but any sort of restraint on organ size is more to do with what’s being put into our systems. If it’s a steady source of calorie and nutritionally dense food, then overall gut length could be lessened, that’s less organic material our body’s have to work to maintain and feed, and more resources that could be put into systems that could give us a evolutionary advantage. Just look at hummingbirds, with their rapid beating hearts (and tiny size, which also supports/forces a faster heart rate anyway) to see what I mean. Their energy isn’t being funneled into fueling the brain, but instead into the flapping of their wings, but it’s still a similar comparison.
It’s less the case that visceral organ size allows for increased intellectual ability, but instead that general mass just tags a larger brain around, probably due to biological restraints related to absolute size being more advantageous than supremely efficient use of resources. Even disregarding biological restraints, more mass means more resources that could be supplied to various structures.
The direct answer for why we didn’t just grow wider, instead gained height, outside of reasons related to predation, is that longer stride lengths lets an animal move around faster. The fact that women have wider pelvises than men points to something, something not wholly related to the fact that women give birth. It’s not entirely related to stride length, women make up for their short legs and wide hips by simply taking longer strides, but instead related to thermoregulation restraints. Narrow hips increase the surface area to volume ratio, allowing for more heat to be dumped out, for related reasons this is one of the reasons neanderthals took to the strategy of being wide, muscular, and probably fat. Although muscularity allows for more efficient shivering, cold environments select for muscular animals regardless of whether it’s particularly useful outside of shivering.
>A hilarious possibility is that the height added by a larger brain is simply what causes all the correlation between height and IQ
That’s a common answer, and also one of the explanations given for why men are smarter than women. Men are just bigger.
to whom or to what was ruby connected?
answer: american cosa nostra and jew…NOT CIA!
but as mugabe said…marcello himself may’ve “gotten a call” from who(m)ever…
in other words the following scenario is NOT rube goldberg, even though it is covered in purple lesions and hates jesus:
dulles calls giancana calls marcello hires oswald hires ruby. oswald doesn’t know.
but there are much less AIDSey ways the CIA has of killing pipo.
the non-pills' burden said:
giancana was a “connected guy”…to the CIA…wikipedia says that’s just a fact not some crazy conspiracy theory.
when oswald said, “i’m just a patsy” pill has never considered two other interpretations of this statement:
1. i love oprah so much i can’t stand it.
2. i did it. but i was HIRED to do it…by powerful pipo.

robustness doesn’t mean obesity or steroid freak.
it means skeleton.
world’s most robust pipo are polynesians.
second most robust are balts and scandinavians.
does that mean they’re fat and juicing?
no. it means if you dig up their bones they’re big.
everyone is a half drink short. said:
saw a woman at the liquor store yesterday with cirrhosis. first time i’ve seen such in person. skinny with fat veins on legs…looks like 9 months pregnant…but way too old to be pregnant…why you never wanna work at a liquor store…she wasn’t drunk and if denied service could sue for disability i suppose…
i had my own liver looked at…nothing…gastro-enterologist told me “maybe because scars are just too small to be detected.” maybe.
there’s yuge variation in the liver damaging effects of alcohol. it may damage the brain, but basically no matter how much one drinks…as long as he burns off the calories in exercise he’ll never develop cirrhosis…which is a sequela of fatty liver.
there’s also an old south asian guy i see at the store. i wonder what horrible thing happened to him that he drinks so much…as i think of south asians as NOT alcoholics. and he drives a bmw iirc.
alcohol does NOT damage the liver DIRECTLY. said:
Big River Man, martin strel, and sumos drink so much but never develop fatty liver because so much exercise.
cirrhosis only develops AFTER fatty liver.
climbing mount oprah said:
yes! so theoretically if one drank 4x what i can’t because makes me throw up but had an olympic swimmer’s calorie consumption…no liver damage.
but would have other problems like gastritis and thiamine deficiency.
SAD but true... said:
pipo and mice on the high end of moderate drinking usually have healthier livers…because so many behavioral associations.
not making that up.
obesity by itself can cause cirrhosis sans alcohol, for example.
