This perfectly summarizes why I love the Simpsons and hate Family Guy. 

Yup.

So this.

I watched that episode with my family and I could just feel how uncomfortable everyone was. Honestly, it was a really jarring, unpleasant episode.

Homer is a terrible dad. So is Peter. But Homer’s saving grace has always been that he tries—he’s bad at it and he fucks it up a lot, but he loves his family and he wants to be better than he is.

One of my favorite Homer moments is in “Diatribe of a Mad Housewife.” Tl;dr Marge writes a steamy romance novel starring herself and Ned, and when Homer finds out, he chases down Ned and, rather than attack him, asks him to teach him how to be a better husband.

There’s some part of his stupid self that wants to do better.

I never got that impression with Peter. Instead, the family has gotten more and more abusive towards Meg. It’s really unsettling for me when I started realizing that’s what happens sometimes in abusive families. Abusers sometimes single out one child to abuse, and quite often the other family members take the abuser’s side. After all, it’s easier to side with an abuser than to run the risk of becoming the target yourself.

There’s never really a point where it seems like Peter cares at all that his shitty behavior impacts his family. It actually seems to have gotten worse over the years. He expects everyone to clean up his messes because that’s always what happens; there’s really no reason for him not to be shitty.

And it’s easy to see how Meg is affected. She doesn’t have much of a character, really, because so much her screen time is devoted to being abused. The bits of character development all seem to hinge on her being this sad, neglected person who’s trying her best but never really gets any help from anyone. Quite the opposite; there have been a lot of episodes where her family sabotages any attempts to be herself.

It can be easy to forget how awful this behavior is when the only context is the show itself (frankly, everyone on Family Guy is kind of terrible). Seeing it played against the Simpsons, who are a flawed and dysfunctional but ultimately loving family, was painful to watch.

I felt it was more testament to how shit a writer McFarlane really is. This scene was played to be a dumb gag in the end because that’s the only use of a character Meg is. Peter is a dumbfuck sociopath because he’s one dimensional and only exists to make whoever’s watching Fox in the evening giggle. Family guy has no relative depth to The Simpsons (for the most part) because it’s a machine fueled by a dimwitted audience that excretes half-assed pop culture jokes and in-show gags that were driven into the ground a long time ago. Good comedy doesn’t rely entirely on offensive material, but that’s been the life support for Family Guy at this point. 

John Mulaney had a great bit about how jarring it is when people mention in the same breath one thing that’s actually really good and another that’s complete shit as though they’re on even footing (people comparing the Godfather with Scarface was what prompted the bit). Basically he said it’s like saying your favorite foods are lobster! And skittles.

Family Guy is the Skittles to the Simpson’s lobster.

Hey biologyweeps, I know Hydrogen Peroxide can have its uses, but I thought you’d get a kick out of some of the “uses” in this article (particularly the bits about using it to “get oxygen into the system” by applying to the skin and also the apparent cancer fighting properties…)

Can we have some debunkery, please?

Plaguemother have mercy, WHY. 

Also why do people never fucking source their shit, they end up posting stuff like that that is half reasonable and half utter bullshit. Let’s go through this one by one. 

1) That’s a thing, the FDA agrees 

2) that’s also a thing and infect what many a laundry detergent already uses as bleaching agent. It applied in the form of Sodiumpercarboante. 

3) But don’t you beleive that H2O2 works against every kind of microorganism. (here)

4) Well, duh, that’s why we call them ‘peroxide blondes’ 

5) First see point 3 about the limitations of H2O2. Next, why your ear of all places, it’s not like you’re inhaling most aerosol germs or anything? I mean yes your ears your mouth and your nose are connected, but for that you need to pour in enough H2O2 to get into your pharynx to begin with and then even then it doesn’t magically defeat gravity and rise into your nose and you’re not supposed to inhale it into your lungs to begin with.

6) The fizzing is because H2O2 decomposes to H2O and O2. the reaction can be catalysed with the enzyme catalase. Nearly all living tissue produces catalse, hence if you pour it onto wounds it fizzes. As for he rest of it one should consider that liberal H2O2 application has been implicated in stronger scaring (here

7) Yeah that works if it’s part of creams, not so sure about slapping sheer H2O2 onto your skin. Note that H2O2 may temporarily make your skin appear paler by causing microembolisms in your capillaries (here, page 4). 

8) for that to happen you need water your plants with it because the effect goes like this: water + H2O2 = spontanous generation of O2 via decomposition of the H2O2. If you water plants with it it may help prevent root rot, since root rot happens when your plants roots are suffocating due to lack of oxygen. Alternatively you could try loosening up the soil in your pots or giving your plants new pots every now and then.

9) NO. You oxygenate your body through breathing, despite what everyone tells you. Your pores are not for breathing, they’re the end points of your sweat glands. Seriously, this is bullshit. And it doesn’t detoxify you, either. Your kidneys and liver do that. You do not need any fizzy baths to help you. 

10) NO. First it is bullshit that all cancer is the same. It’s not. Next, if cancer needed less oxygen do you think you’d find tumors with crazy levels of vein building activity. IVs have been linked to deaths. The 35% concentration is not safe to consume, do not do this thing, do not replace your cancer treatment with this bullshit it will not help you it will very likely make you worse. 

Edit: oh sweet purulent Broodmother someone in the comments is fucking using this for cancer treatment.
