Critic after critic is saying one of the things that makes Top Gun such a good movie is there is no wokeness in it whatsoever.


No *actual* critic is saying anything like this. And we all know EB will never be able to provide a source.

Maybe some angry racists on Breitbart or some other neo-Nazi sites are saying that…

It's easy to confuse such screeds with flatulence; just ask "Does this road apple pass the smell test?"

Then sit back and have a good laugh, secure in the knowledge that not all men are created equal.

My boss rented out multiple movie theaters so our employees could see a sneak peak of the new Top Gun (he is an aviation fanatic who has owned lots of jets and at one time had the "worlds largest private air force").


He showed a movie with a pilot flying at Mach 10.

On October 3, 1967, William J. “Pete” Knight made the history defining moment when he set the record for fastest manned aircraft reaching Mach 6.70

I agree, that is one of the reasons I am not a big fan of fiction movies. In my bosses case, he has travelled at over 17.000 miles per hour orbiting the earth.

What Is A Woman?
Behind the pay wall at The Daily Wire.
Hilarious to watch the transgender community's inability to make coherent arguments about their gender dysphoria.
When they muster a supposed answer to the title question, it's a word salad that would make Karine Jean-pierre proud.
Here is the trailer What Is A Woman?
Documentary is by the same guy that wrote "Johnny The Walrus", the #1 LGBTQ book on Amazon.

AFAIK an orbital trip can cost more than $50 million per seat.
Well 17,000 mph that is about Mach 22, but it is not an aircraft.

NASA's X-43A unmanned scramjet Pegasus booster sent the X-43A on its record setting flight of Mach 9.6.on Nov. 16, 2004.

He is a wealthy man. He didn't buy a seat on the Spacex rocket, he bought all four seats. He has also contracted for three more Spacex flights, I think the next one is in December.

Read a joke, it is super pissing off women on social media. All women are bi, you just have to figure out if it's bisexual or bipolar.

The reason that pisses women off is it hits a little too close to home. It's more of a bipolar joke because so many women act that way. Imagine what the world would be like if men were super moody like women are. I have never known a woman who was not moody.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

This is a funny self-own on EB’s part.

Can’t imagine why women are always moody in his presence! He seems like he’d be such a delight.

I wondered if it was him. There haven't been that many civilian orbital trips. Mostly they are sub-orbital.
