  1. https://www.google.com/amp/www.thewrap.com/better-call-saul-nacho-varga-breaking-bad-michael-mando/amp/ I remember the scene, but I did not remember Saul's saying it was Ignacio. Monday's episode was the first one where I truly felt (I know other people already have) Jimmy's cruelty. Poor Irene.
  2. Thank you for sharing, Mister OJ.
  3. Bonesy was one of the first people on Gen Chat to engage me in conversation. Having joined the board in 2011, I was a first wave noob, and the transition from upcountry discussions to the south lands of the board was interesting. Lord o' Bones was always kind to me, a great storyteller who appreciated the tales of others. Like a lot of people here, we became Facebook friends, and I enjoyed his posts there, even when suffering through his love of Bernie and hatred of HRC. I looked back and saw he was posting as recently as the beginning of May. I don't understand how he is gone. When I learned he was sick again, I thought he'd beat the illness as he had done repeatedly in the past. We have lost a friend, someone who was hysterically entertaining while also exhibiting kindness to those of us who needed it most. @ArborGold and @rocksniffer--Your stories have made me cry (with a certain Commie questioning what on my phone was making me weep), but I so appreciate your sharing them with us. @ArborGold--I love the story about the moon. For those who did not know John or who perhaps found his election views problematic, I found this posting that is so emblematic of his personality. In response to his dad's criticism of his saying one could not be a Republican and a Christian in 2017, "Well yeah dad, but it's only Facebook. There is no one I'm friends with here I don't love and respect." I miss you Bonesy, and I miss your posts on the board and on Facebook that made me laugh, and I miss your kindness. I hope somewhere you're telling stories, while elated that you finally got your old name, avatar, and post count returned. Good bye, sweet friend. I will miss you always.
  4. Done. Thanks so much for organizing this.
  5. The Pill can absolutely affect your libido. The same hormones in birth-control pills that prevent pregnancy (estrogen and progestin) also reduce testosterone production, and testosterone plays a huge role in sex drive and orgasms. The Pill's hormones increase production of SHBG, the sex hormone-binding globulin, which, in turn, can reduce circulating levels of testosterone even more. Before you think you have aged out of sex, ludicrous because you are a mere babe in the woods, go quickly to your gynecologist and discuss non-hormone based alternatives.

  7. For US citizens, the protocol in a receiving line to meet a personage such as the Queen of England is to wait for her to extend her hand, and then you may extend yours. (You'll most likely be given instructions by her staff on matters such as the "don't touch" rule). US citizens should not bow or curtsy to this or any monarch. A good etiquette source book (that is US specific) is Emily Post's Etiquette. It is now in its 18th edition. Since I'm relying on an old 15th edition, I should update.
  8. The Kate McKinnon impression of her on SNL truly blurs the line between reality and fiction. Yep. Sloggy immediately caught the gaffe (racist patronizing).
  9. MZ, at the last firm where I was partner, I always attended the obligatory meeting to vote on which of our summer law clerks should be extended permanent offers. One year, the recruiting partner at the firm, who was also an employment lawyer(!), objected vehemently to extending an offer to a summer clerk on the basis that said clerk had taken off her bra at a bar outing with a number of male lawyers from our office. In my opinion, the behavior of our lawyers, not that of the clerk, was questionable and perhaps violative of several statutes, titles, and regulations. The only pertinent factors were that the clerk did excellent work and got along well with most everyone. Ultimately, though, the recruiting partner raised so much hell that the offer was not extended by our firm. In an unlike-high-school-but-like-a-high-school-movie turn of events, the recruiting partner's husband was also a lawyer at another large firm in town, where, in fact, he was the recruiting partner as well. The clerk in question had split her summer and clerked at that firm the second half of the summer. The recruiting partner's husband did not share the qualms of his wife regarding this clerk, and she was offered a position at that firm. As to your specific situation, I'd rather work with the person curious about bugs than the rat's ass who would repeat puerile ponderings that could have a direct impact on another person's employment or lack thereof.
  10. Exactly. If a person says, for example, "blue is a good color on you," the correct response is "thank you," not "it is."
  11. And as @Kalbearnoted earlier, those Trump-nominated justices will ensure, among other horrors, that reproductive freedom for women will become a relic of the past.
  12. Yes, with the Senate in its current makeup, Trump will have an easy process shepherding through his nominees. His chosen ones will not suffer the fate of Merrick Garland.
  13. It is somewhat likely/likely that 2-3 justices of SCOTUS will die/retire for health reasons and therefore, it is somewhat likely/likely that Trump, through the nomination process, could affect legal decisions long after his 4-8 year reign of terror.
