    I watched Ivan The Terrible, Part II today. Awesome movie and fits into expressionistic mode. As does Black Sunday of my avatar fame.

    A few questions:

    Please define torture. At what point does aggressive questioning turn into torture?

    Please give specific examples of torture working.

    One of the strongest arguments against torture is that it should not be practiced by civilized nations no matter how barbaric the enemy because torture says more -- and injures the fabric of the nation more -- about the nation committing it than it does about the enemy. Your thoughts on that statement?

    During World War II, we did not torture Japanese POWs because the military brass discovered that talking info out of opposing soldiers was much more effective than beating it out of them (I read the original manual before, but am having trouble finding it on Google). The Germans also discovered the same tactic when dealing with American POWS. Given that human nature does not generally change, why should we approach AQ any differently?

    I let them watch Tom & frigging Jerry, I was just bullshittin'.

    Speaking of which, I wonder what kids today think of those cartoons made in 40s and 50s? Even when I watched them as kid in the 70s and 80s, I was like, damn, there's some arcane shit in these cartoons. Can't imagine how antiquated they look to today's kids.

    And then there's the racial stereotypes rampant in the old cartoons, particularly Tom & Jerry's black maid, pretty much anything made in WWII, and the gold standard -- all things Speedy Gonzales.

    What a HOOT those jokes are!

    I still miss Futurama.

    I hope it's just as good when it comes back.
