When "the powers that be" change the race of a character, it is ALMOST ALWAYS changed to be WHITE. The Pharaoh in Exodus, Tonto in The Lone Ranger, all the heroes in The Last Airbender (but villains remained ethnic); even Katniss in The Hunger Games books was described as several shades darker than Jennifer Lawrence. But when the producers of the upcoming Fantastic Four movie picked Michael B. Jordan to play the Human Torch, comic book nerds went ballistic! For Hollywood, today just as much as for the last century, the "politically correct" thing to do is "whitewash".
But then, if I were to suggest a Black Brit to play James Bond, my first pick would be Richard Ayoade (but lose the hair, keep the glasses). :)

That's NOTHING compared to what beach-front property owners do. The beaches may be public property, but private developers are allowed to buy up miles and miles of land, and refuse to allow anyone to park nearby, or even walk through to the beach. It's not strictly illegal, and it's a clear-cut case of public lands being stolen and locked-up for private use by the wealthy.

Dear Remy
Admittedly, a truly touching video.
But please be more condescending. Please tell us more about what we should feel, when we should feel it, and how we should behave. And please tell us to what psychologists you refer and to what works of theirs you might cite. Finally, if you would be so kind as to elaborate a bit on your definition of what constitutes "proof," and whether, or to what extent, this might coincide with the Scientific Method of Rene Descarte and Sir Francis Bacon.
Thank you.

PS- In return for your being more condescending, I will agree, in the future, to be more sarcastic.

I disagree entirely. I've found plenty of morbid fantasies and dark imaginative depths here on Neatorama. I look forward to finding more.

What a stupid jerk. This is nature and how it works...you are no hero. You are an idiot. Leave nature to function how it does...that bird might have had something wrong with it that allowed it to get grabbed and now not only did it probably go die somewhere, you may have caused unseen issues to occur in the local wildlife. People like you should stay home.

Please, for the love of God...no more Deadpool!!!!1! Also SMH at women that have to incorporate cleavage into their cosplay. I'll take Kaylee from Firefly over she-Marty McFly anyday of the week.

As well, the wife's wise solution of sharing her personal problems on the Internet will provide her with the necessary tools to resolve their interpersonal relationship issues.
