First, the latest member of the Red Lantern Corps.

from Champ

Then a reaction to recent, spoilery developments in Blackest Night.

And finally, a legality scan.

I always pictured the Daleks as Sinestro corps myself. Even gave them their own Oath.

"Daleks are the race supreme!
Your race will die with anguished screams!
Your end is near, accept your fate,
Sinestro corps: EXTERMINATE!"

Strut your stuff, Sinestro. Let your haters be your motivators. :D

I've always wondered: Does Andy actually like the taste of her own cooking or is she so determined to cook "healthy" that she chokes it down just so the rest of the family won't have an excuse not to?

I guess the secondary question is: does she have a lima bean fetish?

You know ten years ago things wouldn't have been as easily explained as being a "fetish".

Oh I hate Daleks. Not because they're so scary and terrifying but because everyone *thinks* they're so scary and terrifying... and they're not. Giving them Red Lantern rings is a little better, but still.

Nerd Alert!

1. Atrocitus, founder & leader of the Red Lantern corps, is out for revenge on the guardians for building the genocidal robots that killed his family.
2. Daleks are genocidal robots.
3. ???
4. Daleks join Red Lantern Corps

Oh I think conceptually they're interesting, as you said. It's very rare to find a hero who's main archnemesis is a genocidal salt and pepper shaker. They win me there. It's the, "Oh noes they're so terrifying!" press (which is pretty constant) they get. 'Cause... <_< ...they're not.

Oh yes they bloody are. You might be of the newer generation of substance-less horror, but the Daleks are among the very very few alien monsters created in popular fiction that aren't based on humans or Earth creatures, alongside Carpenter's Thing; they have no faces, hands, legs or discernible emotions. Familiarity encourages empathy; you can't empathise with a Dalek because you and it are utterly different.

I suppose it's not your fault, really; your biggest exposure to Daleks has been from their lacklustre appearances in the new series. Apart from the poorly-named 'Dalek', the RTD writing team approached the main villains the same way they did every other aspect: in the manner of a toddler on a sugar rush. You should have seen the subtle, oppressive terror employed in their first-ever appearance, or the Frankenstein-like emergence of their hatred before Davros in "Genesis of the Daleks". Back before Davies mucked everything up they were proper hide-behind-the-sofa fierce, not pushovers who could be wiped out entirely after every single adventure.

What's not scary about a race which views any and all forms of life which are not Dalek as something to be exterminated with extreme prejudice, and has the firepower to back up the threat?

Daleks are mutants in little tanks. Not robots.

Ironically, it was the new series Daleks that got me interested in Doctor Who in the first place, more specifically their argument with the Cyberman in the season 2 finale.




I just love everything about the Daleks. Probably my favorite race of evil aliens.

I've used that exact same line with my kids. I wasn't an English major, but my mom is, and she did this to me all the time.

May and Can are two very different words. Learn it! Knowing is half the battle (GI-Joe *swoosh*)

I just want to know why the rest of the family doesn't learn to cook. What a bunch of self-centered whiners.

Tch. Anyone too helpless to grasp the cooking of hot dogs or spaghetti deserves to spend the rest of their lives in Legume Casserole Hell.

Honestly, all this retrograde John Gray Mars-Venus "humor" is why I skip over 90% of the newspaper "funnies." Well, that and the painfully mediocre drawings.

So she's what TV Tropes would call a Cordon Bleugh Chef, then?

First of all - icon love. And fear. And loathing (and resentment)

Second of all - so is she a Grammar Nazi or a Femminazi? Or both?
