  1. Had to spoil this Bernie one for language:
  2. Thus vindicating those posters who were super concerned about the lockdowns causing suicides to skyrocket! Wait--600 more suicides year over year? Never mind, carry on.
  3. God damn that show has the worst life expectancy. Farewell Ms. Furlan. You were metal.
  4. If you win, don’t tell us. Don’t tell anyone you aren’t absolutely certain you can trust. That kind of money attracts all kinds of attention, almost none of it good.
  5. A wise man once said of Cap’s shield, “That thing doesn’t obey the laws of physics at all.”
  6. Honestly it seems like all breakfast food is outrageously expensive in restaurants. $5 for a short stack of pancakes? $2 per strip of undercooked bacon? Come on.
  7. I've eaten there. Although to be clear, the food wasn't different, just more expensive.
  8. I plan to sleep through the inauguration as I don’t usually get out of bed until 730am.
  9. This is why, despite the incoming Biden administration, America has a long way to go to get out of the hole it's currently in. Three decades of indoctrination by cable news and social media literally have 40% of Americans believing Hitler was a bad guy but he had the right idea. The federal government is hamstrung by Q Cucks Clansmen like Hawley because a those Americans are now indoctrinated to think white supremacy is a feature, not a bug, and they vote accordingly. Trump may be (almost) gone but his power base is still there and all they need is a new figurehead to rally behin
  10. I'm not sure the GotG have ever really thought of themselves as actual guardians of the galaxy. IIRC the original choice of the title was ironic at best, and the group has never been anything other than a motley crew of antiheroes who do the right thing only reluctantly or accidentally. Their primary motivation is loyalty to each other. None of them are idealistic in any way.
  11. It's okay, you can be Aethelwold. Or Aethelflaed.
  12. Option #2: Mentor #3: Uncle Iroh (Avatar) "Pride is not the opposite of shame, but its source. True humility is the only antidote to shame."
  13. What’s funny is that the less confused Parler users are switching to Signal. The other funny thing is that Signal tells you if someone in your contacts list signs up for Signal. I’ve gotten a few of those in the past week. Hmm.
  14. Option #1: Mentor #2: Spock “Anger, fear, aggression. The dark side are they. Once you start down the dark path forever will it dominate your destiny.”
  15. Finally finished Into the Badlands, the best postapocalyptic wuxia intrigue series ever made. If you like wire-fu, swordplay, excessive gore, and shifting loyalties, this is the series for you. It has its flaws--in particular it felt very rushed toward the end, and the primary macguffin is never adequately explained--but this was a high budget production and it showed in the costumes, sets, and fight scenes that never got old. In fact this series literally had two production units operating in parallel, one for drama and one for action. Warning: Season 3 is as long as seasons 1 and 2 put t
  16. Perhaps this would not be a problem if you did not have a weird ass?
  17. I don't hate Brady but I am kind of tired of him. Same with Belichick really.
  18. I'm now rooting for the Bills to win it all. But more importantly, if they're going to lose, they should lose next week. It is imperative that they not make it to the Superb Owl and lose again.
