    Movie News & Miscellany

    I feel the same way. But Page has already shown a lot talent over his career, so I don't imagine continuing to play Vanya would be a problem.

    Gas Bandit's Political Thread V: The Vampire Likes Bats

    I see most of you saying that other parties/ideologies are corrupt, or inept, or power-hungry, etc. But when it comes to describing your own position, you immediately describe the “ideal” version of that political party. “Democrats want to take your freedoms! Republicans only care about making...

    How the fuck am I supposed to make a clickbait headline that scares dumb people if I include logic?

    The Trump Regime Thread

    You forgot the “Convince state politicians to abandon the idea of democracy and just install me as dictator for life” phase that comes after court battles.

    The Trump Regime Thread

    According to a recent article, Trump told some close friends he knows he lost. But he is going to drag this out and fight it as long as possible because he’s mad at the Democrats for saying Russia interfered with the 2016 election and for impeaching him. Blocking the transition and harming the...

    Rant VIII: The Reckoning

    Years ago when I worked in a call center I had a customer file a complaint with my supervisor for being “too polite.” Her argument was that my politeness was done just to make her feel bad as she was yelling at me, and “she wouldn’t stand for it.” So yeah, some people are fucking horrible. I...

    The Trump Regime Thread

    The racist assholes think they can come out in the open and get a free pass. That's Trump's great legacy: making the trashiest racists think it was their time to shine again.

    [Rant] Minor Rant III: For a Few Hollers More

    Why is it that I never hear from the parents of students who desperately need to intervene in their kid's life, but I constantly hear from parents who need to settle the fuck down and realize their kid is doing just fine?

    She is an absolute piece of shit, so it definitely wasn't too much.

    [Question] Thanksgiving: Should I Stay or Should I Go?

    Both you and Charlie are correct. The CDC recently identified hotels as a major source of infection, but it was specifically because people in hotels were mingling at pools, restaurants, etc. Staying in your room without mingling with others is perfectly safe, so long as people carefully follow...

    [Question] Thanksgiving: Should I Stay or Should I Go?

    Sometimes the universe gives you instant feedback. I am the OP for this thread. After deliberating for the past few days (including considering what you all had said) I decided not to go. Everyday the spread of COVID-19 is getting worse and worse, and multiple experts and politicians are...

    "...protect the homeland." That doesn't sound fascist at all, no sir.

    The Trump Regime Thread

    I am less worried about the military, and more worried about ICE, DEA, US Marshalls, local police, and every other law enforcement agency that sees Trump as either a) a fearless and powerful messiah, or b) their ticket to stopping all the justified criticism for how they treat their communities...
