I have now noticed the extremely awkward placement of that man's nipples, and now I can't un-notice it, so you have to too.

This question makes no sense. "Cruel," "evil," and "greedy" are adjectives, not comparatives or superlatives. This is like if somebody says "the sky is blue" and you ask "compared to what?"

What about the bit where he's reminiscing on the surreality of the Service destroying his old service record and reassembling it with the Bond name after the previous Bond died?

Some people will. But it's not entirely in human nature for all of us to get fat and complacent in the abundance of resources. We have a drive to compete. Otherwise rich people's kids would never get anything done. And while some of them definitely do go that route, there are quite a few who make their own accomplishments on top of their parents'.

See, I can totally understand this argument in situations where the *character* was male/white. But in the "James Bond" case, "James Bond" isn't even one guy. It's a code name that travels. And in the Ghostbusters case, A) they didn't use the same characters, and B) There's pretty heavy-handed hints that Venkman and Co. exist, are in the movie, and are separate characters from the current Ghostbusters. The original actors' cameos correspond neatly to where the characters went at the end of the video game, when they were convinced that the astral plane could no longer connect to our plane. There's a reason why a taxi driver would suddenly spout *original* Ghostbusters classifications.

So, uh, y'all are aware that the name "James Bond" does not refer to one "character," right? "James Bond" is just whoever has the 007 designation at the moment.

It *really* sucks cause unless they're bad enough to need surgical removal, all the hospital can really do is monitor and give palliative care (i.e. painkillers).

Please, say "fat" rather than any of the condescending euphemisms. And yes, there are fat people speaking out about the exxaggeration of the negative health consequences of obesity - for instance, the part that the "healthy" band, in terms of pre-geriatric mortality rates, is the one we've always called the "overweight" range, and the part where in many of the defining studies of the era in which we started studying the effects of obesity, dying from anything, for instance, a vehicular impact, while obese was often recorded as death *due to* obesity. But trust me, pretty much none of them are unaware of the main body of research on the fact - doubly so since if they actually want to make an argument, they had to do the research.

Raise awareness of what? That being fat correlates with health problems? Trust me. No awareness needs to be raised.

I wouldn't portray it as quite *that* innocent. Remember, in that era a woman was supposed to carry "mad money" so that a guy couldn't pressure her into sex by reminding her that they were twenty miles from her home and he had the car.

I was about to say, the clue about why people keep swiping left might be somewhere in the fact that you legit use the phrase "land whale."

... The dramatic irony of which is, of course, that the person from whom I take two of those examples... was morbidly obese because she had had cancer.

I assure you, no fat person over the age of eight needs to be told about the negative health effects of obesity. Our parents have told us. Our doctors have told us. Random strangers have told us. Random strangers have lectured our parents in front of us. Our teachers have surreptitiously handed us printoffs. Our teachers have NON-surreptitiously handed us printoffs. Our schools have assigned us special classes. If you work retail, children occasionally come up to you and concernedly lecture you on the subject. Gas station cashiers occasionally refuse to sell you food "out of concern for your health." Consider the subject covered.

Egh. Ruins the joke if you have to stretch the usage that much.

Do people actually say "with a good taste" when they mean "with good taste" or "with a good sense of style"?

The $135 billion I'll actually buy, but the major global economic restructuring that would be required to KEEP poverty eliminated would be a hell of an ancillary cost.

Well, there was that thing in the eighties where everyone temporarily voted for a bunch of people to remove the economic regulations put in place to keep the oligarchs and speculators from doing specifically that, based on the promises of increased personal wealth and tax breaks.
