    US Politics: Get Tested or Get Bested

    Not true. I worked in a small conservative, very religious town, and the Methodist core of that town ran a science teacher off for getting too close to evolution. Absolutely science is an endangered subject in this country.

    You have to understand, if a science teacher in America did that, they'd be run from the profession for espousing anti-Christian messages. How this would relate to that? I have no idea. But it would happen.

    US Politics: Get Tested or Get Bested

    It was strange the silence it received, but I chalked it up to Coronavirus panic. I think this hurts Biden a lot, but even just looking at the post ThinkerX put into this thread about a conversation with a conservative co-worker shows that Trump's base is not faltering. Which is scary as some of his base once voted Democrat. In response to some of the posts since the one I quoted, I think more women could be out there but possibly don't come out for a variety of legitimate reasons. I also think its possible a person could do this once and not again. A person who assumed due to their privilege this was all good and fine, and read those clear cues of resistance way later than they should have. Either way, I always wondered how Democrats in general would deal with an accusation if it hit a high profile member (say the Democratic presumptive nominee). Silence so far. It's disturbing.

    You were so close...then he veered right back to the beginning of the argument.

    Is this sarcasm? Because if not, I don't know what to say.

    The interview (the woman recounting the experience) is as bad as I've heard. Dems pretended to care with Kavanaugh and Trump. If they ignore this...I don't know what to say.

    US Politics: Mad Max Beyond Corona Dome

    So I didn't see this posted otherwise, perhaps it's been missed due to the Covid 19 emergency. Accusations about Joe Biden's sexual assault are beginning to resurface. I'm not surprised, I predicted last summer that this would be an issue once he won the nomination (the nomination is all but sealed up at this point). Here is an audio interview with Tara Reade, but I warn you, it's pretty upsetting.
  8. YES. I hatewatched up through the season before the final season. Sooooooooooooo bad. It was frustrating too because I love del Toro.
  9. Wow. You had me here, and thank you.

    I mean, it's all great stuff, but I just don't see most of that passing--though it should. At some point the Dems begin to look like they're holding up relief--minimal relief though it may be.
  11. I don't know if it is finished or not, but I watched a couple of seasons trying to like it. I thought Lagertha was great, for example. But most of the vikings (like the main guy) looked like dudes who live in Wyoming and horde guns. I just couldn't see many of them as Vikings--though that wasn't true for some like Lagertha, and I think the main character's brother.
  12. Perfect! I'm starting tonight. I wonder if this will be a "so bad I don't hate it" like Legend of the Seeker when it aired originally.
  13. Details! Maybe I'll add this to my list. This is really cool, I had no idea about that.
  14. I love to hatewatch stuff. While I've always loved Martin's books, I hated the show, and I hatewatched it for five or so seasons. I just find a certain joy in ripping things to pieces. So I thought, given the quarantine, now would be a good time to just revel in the grime and let our negative sides run free (in a safe space)! What do you all love to hatewatch? If it's popular, what makes you hate it? I suppose it goes without saying, spoilers are involved, but because this is potentially an exhaustive list of things we've watched, let's use spoiler tags.For me, the first in depth hatewatch I ever did was with the Walking Dead. I have so much more, but I think I'll go back and hatewatch the series again and take notes. I'd love to hear from all of you.

    Videogames : Cyberpunk Samurai edition.

    I decided to reload my old, old Ori save and see if I can beat it since I can get the 2nd one as part of the Xbox game pass. I didn't realize I had stopped Ori right before the last level. So I beat it and now I'm free to move onto the next.
