March 19, 2012: All the Superheroes Read Lei Feng



Sent to me from Beijing. The text at the top reads "The world’s superheroes all study" and the book they're holding and referencing (that is to say, the book they all study) is Lei Feng's Diary.
Lei Feng is a Great Leap Forward icon, that’s him on the right.

Quote:

During 1964 the Lei Feng campaign shifted gradually from doing good deeds to a cult of Mao.

Know your enemy all that kind of things

Superman has something weird going on with his britches.



infinite monkey  Monday Mar 19 04:11 PM

Superpeople get on my nerves. They're all freaky weird and socially inept.

Well, Wonder Woman was cool but I don't see her in that picture. I see a Kirstie Alley and a Sally Struthers, neither of whom is a superpeople.

Super-size people?


infinite monkey  Monday Mar 19 07:28 PM

Grav, have you seen Kirstie lately? She's looking good! (Again!) I feel Kirstie's pain.



spudcon  Monday Mar 19 11:19 PM

People still worshipping Mao, the most successful mass murderer of the 20th century, outperforming Stalin and Hitler. Be proud, communists!



ZenGum  Monday Mar 19 11:24 PM

Spud, bud, howdy! You've been quiet lately. How are things going?



Pearcie (AUS)  Monday Mar 19 11:52 PM

Things I learned from Lei Feng...

Never let anyone take your photo while wearing a silly hat. You never know where it might end up.



HungLikeJesus  Tuesday Mar 20 12:45 AM

I thought all superheros either wear a mask or a funny hat, or at least a headband.



Pearcie (AUS)  Tuesday Mar 20 01:06 AM

Fair point, HLJ, but that's why superheroes usually try to keep their true identity secret. Plus most ordinary people wouldn't have the balls to rip on a superhero for obvious reasons.

Didn't Sally Struthers have a um ah Super Rack?

When did Moe Howard become a superhero?



wolf  Tuesday Mar 20 05:52 PM

I love Moe Howard and all, but I don't know if superhero is the word I'd use ...



Griff  Tuesday Mar 20 06:43 PM

Wait, wasn't Superman a fascist rather than a commie? Cue UG in 3, 2, 1...



HungLikeJesus  Tuesday Mar 20 08:14 PM

Who, John Wayne?

Being away to keep from getting disappointed by Cellarites. Seems that when I spoke the truth here, some uberliberals wanted to squash my right to speak, so I just decided to let them have the site. It was fun for a while, and it takes a lot to offend me, but they finally wore me down. The web is a gigantic media, so I've found nicer places. Still look at the pod occasionally, but usually keep signed off.

There are a couple non-uberliberals here, you know ...

I have no idea what incident you are talking about, but what's more likely is that you said something you couldn't defend well and when somebody called you on it, you saw you were losing the argument, so you ran away.

A open minded person would take that opportunity to reexamine their beliefs and either learn something new or else realize that they were right all along and be able to clearly articulate why they are right. Nobody knows it all. There's no shame in being wrong, as long as you are willing to learn from it.

Well, the last thread he participated in (besides this one) is http://cellar.org/showthread.php?t=6314http://cellar.org/showthread.php?t=6314. It's an OLD thread circa 2004, but it seems I had resurrected it (perhaps a poor choice of words) in June of 2011. The conversation eventually turned to evolution, creationism, scientific method, etc and then, quiet.

I see zero evidence of any effort to "squash his right to speak", though he would likely find the conversation as disappointing now as he did then.

spudcon, come on back. I'd love to read what you have to say.


classicman  Wednesday May 23 12:05 AM

Heya Spud!



footfootfoot  Wednesday May 23 07:01 PM

Yeah, and if all the super heroes were jumping off of bridges would you do that too?



infinite monkey  Wednesday May 23 08:43 PM

Guffaw!
