What crazy kind of chess they are playing that you don't tell your oponent he is in check?

#74 to #61 - thismustbeseen (11/18/2013) [-]
Maybe they are it's just it's so fast we can't hear it.

... but then why would they talk at normal speed? There must be someone listening.

Maybe the whole conversation occurred in one instant, but they each have to wait for the sound waves to reach them before responding...

Maybe it's always checkmate.
User avatar #79 to #61 - biscuitsunited (11/18/2013) [-]
Maybe they go straight into checkmate without going into check?

If you don't suck balls at chess you really don't have to tell the other person he's in check
User avatar #219 to #61 - martialnorris (11/18/2013) [-]
R U serious? How do you know they checked the other at all? You don't have to check before checkmate. Check means the king is in danger. Checkmate means his ****** (no option preventing him from dying), there is no need to check before checkmate
User avatar #223 to #61 - chaossniper (11/18/2013) [-]
i've seen speed chess a while ago but i don't know if they say check or not
may be its the point since they both have superhuman speed
#310 to #61 - xxsniperelitexx (11/18/2013) [-]
They are playing at superhuman speed. Everytime they say checkmate, they actually just finished a game. The reason for this is sort of to show who's winning their discussion...

User avatar #184 to #171 - schneidend (11/18/2013) [-]
Superman is the Man of Tomorrow. He's supposed to be ultra-progressive. Being raised in Kansas gave him a good sense of manners and right and wrong, but we're talking about a guy who has been to alien worlds, been educated by a hologram of his dead alien father, and traveled through time. "Gubment's tryin' to take my gun" is not a concern of a man who straddles the line between inspiring the world and ruling it.

Luckily, the Flash is around to kind of curb Superman's less brilliant ideas. That's why Supes is asking for advice.

just before you would take out the king, you just say checkmate and reset the board, without actually taking the king.

Ahh.
There we go.
Makes sense now.
#72 to #13 - thismustbeseen (11/18/2013) [-]
It WAS about him "winning" the argument. It was a literary device. It would have been counter to the message if superman won 3 times in a row right after.
#433 to #72 - John Cena (11/19/2013) [-]
He meant that they kept playing the game, and every time "checkmate" was said, a game was won. The "checkmate" was also used to show that the argument was won, but he wasn't saying "checkmate" in the last panel just because he won the argument. As in, he wasn't just sitting there chanting "checkmate." I hope that makes what he said a bit more clear.

It should really be regulated a little more, only going to responsible individuals.    
   
Of course illegal weapons are going to sneak through the system, but at least then responsible people can help protect themselves or others from some violent criminal. And if one exercises good gun safety, and educates their children about firearms, there won't be problems with kids at home.    
   
You can't hold people down, but you  can't let them be completely free either. That's the struggle of governmental rule, the never ending cycle that we've seen throughout the ages.    
   
Balance is what I feel to be the best answer. But who knows...

Very well put
User avatar #242 - akkere (11/18/2013) [-]
I think the point people are missing is that the comic isn't pro-gun control or anything of the sort, but rather that Superman wants to be something of an overlord (This is within the Injustice Gods Among Us story arc which, if I remember correctly, is an arc where Superman ends up establishing a new world order after the Joker drives him ******* ) and just take away the power people have established in terms of law and order and individual power. He's not going to regulate it so citizens don't have guns, he's just going to straight up take every goddamn firearm on the planet and put it... Somewhere

It's not a political piece; it's a plot point regarding where super heroes have to decide whether to extend their reach above and beyond to establish what they believe to be would function best for the greater good, or allow humans to do their own thing even if some will branch off to be the very things they end up fighting in the end.

User avatar #385 to #242 - vilememory (11/19/2013) [-]
Not so much hurt him but made him feel powerless. The Joker made a fool out of Superman, he tricked him into destroying his own city. This is the Man of Steel who is able to well punch reality to make it do what he wants. But in this one instance he knew what it meant to be powerless, to not be able to fix or save those he cared about. He has so much power, so very much and for one moment he was powerless. He never wants to feel that way again. So in order to save the world he must bring it to heel, to ensure the safety of the human race and make sure he is never powerless again he must control the world. That is my take on things.

Plus I had a similar conversation with a friend, to ensure that everybody is safe you must remove all of their freedoms. To ensure a perfect world everybody must stay in one place, they can't do anything for themselves because everything that we do can lead to us hurting ourselves to making mistakes that will harm others or ourselves. I think I said it would be like the matrix except we get a lobotomy so no cyber world to live in.
#481 - kaywillwo (11/19/2013) [-]
I'm pretty liberal, but I don't think banning guns is a good idea, but this argument is pretty invalid. Think of it this way...

No one takes a cigarette into a school and kills 26 kindergarteners.
#496 to #481 - thasmackdown **User deleted account** (11/19/2013) [-]
So its not as traumatic. But cigs still kill more kids than guns do statistically
User avatar #503 to #481 - charagrin (11/19/2013) [-]
That wasn't the point of the argument, the point was humans have so many things that do much more damage than guns, so why go for guns first? And where would it stop?
#511 to #503 - kaywillwo (11/19/2013) [-]
I'd say that guns are more accessible than most of the huge killers. Kinda hard to ban heart disease, you feel me?
User avatar #516 to #511 - charagrin (11/19/2013) [-]
Guns really are not really that easy to get compared to other things of a dangerous nature. Deisel fuel and manure can make a bomb after all. Regardless, still not the point. The point is that humans as a whole have so many bad things going on, how do you put a priority on one specific thing? It would be far easier to ban smokes and enforce it than it would be to ban guns. And again, were would it stop and what would be the results.
#519 to #516 - kaywillwo (11/19/2013) [-]
My view on gun control is in two sets, really. What I think HAS to happen is we need universal background checks on gun buyers. I remember last year, dad wanted a gun, applied for a license, license took too long, he grabbed a couple hundred dollars from the bank and went to the nearest gun show and came back with a shotgun. That's ridiculous. The other thing that I think would be nice, would be illegalizing the sale of military-style assault weapons, such as AR-15s and AK-47s.

I'm ready for your rage
User avatar #520 to #519 - charagrin (11/19/2013) [-]
I agree with the background checks 100%, but an AR-15 is not a "military gun." There are many variants, some used by the military. However a military weapon is generally an automatic platform, along with other differences. And what do you consider a military weapon? The Winchester lever action rifle and clones takes more deer than any other rifle every year, it was also built for military use. What about a 1911? The most popular handgun in the world. Still in use by the US military, same for the M9. Every scary black rifle you see is not a military weapon.
#524 to #520 - kaywillwo (11/19/2013) [-]
True enough. But, take this into mind. Wouldn't you say that ergonomics are important in designing a gun for military use? Those AR platform rifles are designed to kill efficiently, and I personally see no place in our society for such things.
User avatar #525 to #524 - charagrin (11/19/2013) [-]
So was the lever action rifle. A gun is a product, the company that makes it would want it to be ergonomic in order to sell more. Whether to the military or civilians. And AR-15's weren't designed to do anything really. The first few models were complete failures and when the military used some. They were designed to be light, portable, and accurate. Nothing more. Feel free to do some research into the subject, no matter what side you are on it is fascinating to learn about.
#527 to #525 - kaywillwo (11/19/2013) [-]
Yeah, that really is the problem with banning guns, isn't it? It never really stops. See, my problem is, I just can't accept that some problems simply do not have solutions.
User avatar #528 to #527 - charagrin (11/19/2013) [-]
I am more on the slippery slope side of the argument. Throughout history it has been proving again and again that in absence of defense, a civilian populace is subject to tyranny. Granted, there is always some regardless, but we aren't exactly Mexico either.
#529 to #528 - kaywillwo (11/19/2013) [-]
Well, here's my thoughts on that. With the US military being larger than the next 7 largest combined, if the government really wants to oppress you, then there's nothing you can do about it. Your AK isn't going to protect you from the stealth fighter flying above your house.
User avatar #530 to #529 - charagrin (11/19/2013) [-]
Incorrect. The US government can not use AOE or WOMD on their own soil, or they will damage the very infrastructure they intend to control. They would have to rely on ground troops and secondary offensive tactics like denying service, food, etc. All of which would still fail because of how our farming economy is set up. I can go outside right now and find a farm. Anyway, they would have to rely on ground troops and meneuvers to control the populace which is where our firearm saturation and high level of per capita LEO's/ex military would come into play. There are many such example dating back to the dawn of time. Technology does not change the actual process much.
#532 to #530 - kaywillwo (11/19/2013) [-]
All they would have to do is kill a few people with some planes to make examples. Sure, they're not gonna destroy the country, but they won't mind ruining your neighbour's yard.
User avatar #533 to #532 - charagrin (11/19/2013) [-]
And what do you think would happen when they did? If no one had a weapon, nothing. If EVERYONE did, well, revolts do happen.
#534 to #533 - kaywillwo (11/19/2013) [-]
It wouldn't go very well, the citizens would be crushed. With or without those rifles.
User avatar #535 to #534 - charagrin (11/19/2013) [-]
THen why do they not drop bombs on us now and just enstate a dictatorship? What's stopping them?
#536 to #535 - kaywillwo (11/19/2013) [-]
Because they're already dictators, in a sense. Why incite open rebellion when they can keep it like it is?
User avatar #23 - nylak (11/18/2013) [-]
Because the number of dog attack fatalities are totally comparable to those incurred by guns. (35 deaths in the US from dog attacks in 2012, for example, versus 31,076 from guns.)

...I mean, the rest I agree with, but that's just kind of out of place on this list.
#27 to #23 - John Cena (11/18/2013) [-]
I think guns was first then the rest was after they removed guns.... that is how i read it at least.
User avatar #34 to #27 - nylak (11/18/2013) [-]
Yeah, but there are just thousands of other "potentially fatal" things that should be addressed first, I feel like.
User avatar #83 to #23 - XTakedownpaladinX (11/18/2013) [-]
Most of those deaths are self inflicted. Meaning most gun deaths are suicide.
User avatar #418 to #83 - nylak (11/19/2013) [-]
I feel like most dog attacks could be ruled "self inflicted," as well. Like stupid people doing stupid things with unfamiliar animals, or their own animals that they have neglected/mistreated.
User avatar #345 to #23 - xchewsifferx (11/18/2013) [-]
in 2012 8,813 people were murdered with a firearm so if we take your statistic of 31,076 and divide the two, we find that only about 28% of those deaths were murders.

I understand that guns do kill a lot of people, but they also save lives and do a lot of good.
The gun and dangerous dog statistic is a bit absurd, but if you look at gun fatalities compared to many other death statistics- the gun statistic becomes miniscule.

if we really want to start saving lives we need to crack down on heart disease.

User avatar #28 to #23 - oceanmist (11/18/2013) [-]
You want a better example, look at number of people killed by cars vs guns, or number of children killed by pools vs guns. 2/3 of gun deaths are self afflicted.
#36 to #28 - adamks ONLINE (11/18/2013) [-]
3/3 cigarette deaths are self afflicted.
#81 to #36 - John Cena (11/18/2013) [-]
Wrong. Second-hand smoking is more dangerous than actually smoking. Second-hand smoking is when someone breathes the smoke that is blown from someone smoking a cigarette.
#313 to #81 - twentyten (11/18/2013) [-]
How is that any worse than directly smoking a cig and inhale the chemicals themselves?
User avatar #353 to #313 - danniegurl (11/18/2013) [-]
I haven't done actual research, so correct me if I'm wrong. From what I've heard secondhand smoke is more dangerous because there are more toxins in the smoke, as it comes out unfiltered, and the smoker inhales the filtered end.
#372 to #353 - twentyten (11/18/2013) [-]
I just did a quick search and the info ranges from either is worse than the other or both are equally bad. Of course I couldn't find anything reliable though.
#365 to #353 - twentyten (11/18/2013) [-]
That make sense. But aren't the chemicals in the cig are what gives it flavor? And wouldn't it still be more concentrated when compared to second-hand smoke? I don't really know how well the filters work on cigs. I just stay away from them.

DC animation in the late 90's and 2000's was spot on. Batman TAS, Batman Beyond, JL, JLU, and not to mention all the animated movies they released. The Dark Knight Returns is probably my favorite just because Batman is my Favorite and I hate Superman. I'm a DC fan boy. They make the best Comics and animations IMO while Marvel owns the live action movies.

User avatar #186 to #183 - schneidend (11/18/2013) [-]
It's not so much a Slipper Slope argument as where the Justice League draws the line. At some point, they would stop being protectors and start being overlords. Flash is arguing not that getting rid of guns would cause a snowball effect that ruins everything, but that dictating human behavior by force is not what the Justice League is about.
User avatar #190 to #186 - thenuglife (11/18/2013) [-]
The American government on the other hand... Well... ;p
User avatar #194 to #190 - schneidend (11/18/2013) [-]
Part of being a government is a communal agreement to restrict some liberties. That's a fact of life. The Justice League isn't a government, though, and if they tried to start acting like one they would probably have the support of 75% of the entire population at first, if not more. That's what Flash is worried about.
