In all this guy lost countless film roles all because he critiqued Barrack Obama given the communist cult of Hollywood I am surprised he got anything.
Villains That Should've Been Complete Monsters
So, this list regards villains that I feel are so terrible that they could most certainly be complete monsters but are not for a variety of reasons whether it be moral agency issues, mitigating factors, or overall being insufficiently heinous.
1. Monika (Doki Doki Literature Club): While I love the game, as well as the surprise twists and turns, I will forever think that Monika should've been a CM, or at the very least a monster. She manipulates the character files of her own friends, amplifying them so that the player could find them unappealing, thus leaving her as the only option. She drove Sayori to severe depression leading to her committing suicide, she warps Yuri's mind, making her an obsessed woman who stabs herself to death regardless if you accept her confession or not, and she has the nerve to delete Natsuki as well. This bitch literally destroys her own world, all for the sake of being with the player. However, I personally interpret her wish as being wholly s
RIP, Lou Rawls
I just found out that Lou Rawls passed away yesterday. Another icon come and gone.
God, I loved him him when I was a kid.
Wherever he is now, I hope he's partying with Lorenzo Music.
Analyzing Tropes: Complete Monster
A complete monster is the worst kind of villain imaginable. It is a villain who is purely evil with no humanizing factors whatsoever. They are the most heinous individuals in their respective settings, and they ultimately do not redeem themselves. However, a villain is defined as an evil character, meaning that they commit crimes because they're evil. A complete monster is a step above standard villainy, and you can say that they're in a division of their own. This is a valid character trope, but this term is often interpreted differently by many people. This is why it's considered a YMMV trope. There is criteria in order to figure out that you have a monster on your hands, and this is the following:
They are the most heinous characters in their respective setting. In order for a villain to be a CM, they have to be able to stand out from the crowd of other villains. They must also pass the relative heinous standard, which is pretty high, to be honest. For example, Disney and Pokemon ha
95 years since Esch-Cummins
Ever since the end of the USRA era in 1920, the railroad industry has made many major turns. Some causing ripple effects throughout the entire country. We have seen railroads both grow and prosper, or shrivel up and die. Some we’ve even seen being taken over by the government. But one thing is for sure: Everything changed when the government let go of the railroads.
But what if the government never let go of the railroads? What if some of the plans that were gone over about the Complete Consolidation Plan of 1929, actually happened? It’s difficult to say what the railroad situation wood look like. However, based on what we know and using critical and creative thinking, we can make a good mental picture of what this would have look like.
But before we jump into this, let’s look at the history behind this. In 1920, Congress passed the Esch-Cummins Act. This Act (officially called the Transportation Act of 1920) not only returned the railroads back to the private sector
95 years since Esch-Cummins Update
After giving much time and consideration to my last article on the Consolidation Plan of 1929, I realized that I could have done a better job than what I did. For one, I realized that I technically gave the New York, Chicago & St. Louis/Chesapeake & Ohio four east-west lines while everyone else got two. So, I'm going to rearrange the railroad in the northeast a bit. Also, I was settling more on the railroad arrangements of the 1950s that the arrangements that were around in the 1920s.
The two primary railroads we will be dealing with for this specific rearrangement will be the Wabash and the Nickel Plate/C&O. For convenience, here is the original arrangement for these two railroads:
Chesapeake & Ohio/New York, Chicago & St. Louis: Bessemer & Lake Erie; Chicago & Illinois Midland; Delaware, Lackawanna & Western; Erie; Hocking Valley; Pere Marquette; 50% of Detroit & Toledo Shore Line
Wabash/Seaboard Air Line: Akron, Canton & Youngstown; Ann Arbor; Lehigh Valley; Norfolk &
Hypothetical Video Game Idea:
Credit goes to curtsibling for inspiring me to come up with this hypothetical idea.
Rabid Civil War.
The Plot Summary:
The storyline is set in an alternate universe where after it's version of America's 2016 Election, the SJWs and the Alt-Righters started a Civil War between each other. It's up to a group of civilians who also happen to be Demigods (whom, thanks to different Gods from the Greek Pantheon, gained their magical powers before this war) that survived this long-term, continuing war to either pick a side or stop both sides. These Demigods were created by the Greek Gods in order to prevent country-wide or world-wide chaos from happening. Yes, even though the Greek Gods are condescending assholes, they care more about human beings than the human villains of this story, enough to create a solution to defend innocent people. What does THAT say about human beings?
The Gameplay Genre:
RPG and Open World, with elements of another video game genre depending on which of the si
