    You know what I am sick of? The media phrasing things in the most passive way possible. "Critics say Hitler may be going too far by caging the Jews, but he insists he is only fulfilling the mandate given to him by voters." "Mao has been accused by some of harassing those with opposing views." "Leader Joseph Stalin is praised by many within his own country, yet opponents now accuse him of acting in a controversial way by moving across the border into neighbouring Poland."

    Warren should be the front-runner if only based on her ability to articulate actual policy and not just spout feel-good babble (Mayo Pete).

    Among all the other reasons why the good guy with a gun theory is insane, just think of how many times these stories have broken like this one where there's initial reports of multiple shooters that are later corrected to just one. In the heat of the moment nobody knows who the fuck is shooting at who and they definitely don't know why

    People are super willing to overlook that Jeffrey Epstein is an anagram for teen spree jiffy. Where other people see coincidence I see evidence.

    Holy shit I just played for six and a half hours without moving from my couch somehow... This is basically one of those goofy ass experimental, yet awesome, mid-tier PS2 games but with an insane AAA budget. I can't even tell you why or how but somehow the basic Hiking Fetch Quest Simulator gameplay loop is addictive as fuck. The terrain is highly designed in a way that really quite simulates and feels like...actual hiking. I used to hike a lot and the thought process it pushes you into feels familiar. I'm constantly scanning the environment, also oddly satisfying, and intently watching the ground and judging inclines and so on. It's not even like there's much at stake here but something makes it work for me. The story and characters are peak Kojima anime absurdity which I find thoroughly entertaining in its silly schlockiness. About seven hours in total and...I somehow really like whatever the fuck this is and I certainly didn't expect it to engage me for six and a half hours STRAIGHT.

    3 years from now, front page of WaPo: Millions Dead as Moon Explodes Fire and rock rained down upon the eastern seaboard this morning as the moon split open, revealing a pink core. Casualty estimates range in the tens of millions, and some scientists say the coming impacts could result in an extinction-level event. It's a Girl! Jeff Bezos announced to the world this morning that he is having a baby girl! Due in three months, Mr. Bezos* when reached for comment said "She will rule the ashes of the forsaken world as my heir." *Jeff Bezos is the owner of this paper, the Washington Post

    Having Holdo do it is kinda super important to the whole story. If you have Ackbar, there's immediately a sense of authority that comes along with him, and the confrontations between Holdo and Poe would no longer feel nearly as ambiguous. It's also an emotional moment, and I'd much rather have Laura Dern in that role than a fish man that can hardly emote.

    Look in the mirror and say 'Franken' three times and Jason shows up with a reason.com article about finicky sexual harassment allegations.

    I have zero issues with us paying out the freakin' nose to Developing World nations to offset the "economic costs" of their environmental conservation as well as granting them significant preferential access to our markets as an incentive.

    "Personal convenience" Link I can personally attest to the financial constraints as a reason for abortion. It's why my wife had one a year or two ago, before I started my new job. She was at about 6 weeks. Between daycare, servicing all of our student loans, and paying down medical bills from her two hospital stays before giving birth, our first ER visit bill for my daughter when she was an infant, and then the debt incurred from having to deal with unpayed maternity leave, it was not financially possible to have another kid at my then current salary. Even having my wife stop working to take care of two kids would not have been possible without accepting nearly twenty more years of debt servicing on our student loans. So, uh, no thanks. These pro fetus assholes can take a long walk on a short pier. If they really cared about life, they'd make it so giving birth and taking time off for a newborn child aren't so financially burdensome, and that the woman has an actual choice to either return to work with daycare that isn't the amount of a mortgage itself, or can stay at home with the child without plunging their family into poverty (we were and are in a better position than most people, and we wouldn't have gone into poverty but another lifetime of debt shouldn't be the sentence for having a family)

    The efforts of the pro-Israel lobbying groups and their Republican/Democratic/evangelical Christian allies have effectively controlled the narrative that ANY language used to decry their influence can be construed as falling into the "Protocols" stereotypes, no matter how innocuous. There is simply no way around it, no matter how hard one tries. Hell, if a Jewish individual makes the attempt, they're labeled as "self-hating".

    The "Guess the State" nonsense is totally fine for something that's relatively light-hearted and innocuous. This definitely is NONE of those things so use it appropriately or lose it.

    RSF bemoans the use of mockery against lower social classes, yet happily utilizes mockery (and worse) against those of higher social classes, completely oblivious to the fact that the latter legitimizes and normalizes the former. It's almost as if once you disregard socials norms and civil discourse, you can't call on them for any degree of protection. Then again, when you are a white, well-educated straight man, why worry? Even in the most toxic of social environments, you are perfectly safe. Enjoy your cruelty, @RedSoxFan9. I'm sure the marginalized groups you purportedly care about enjoy the social environment you love to feed.

    I think it's more about the idea that people deal with grief and guilt differently, and both of these characters are dealing with similar feelings. It's normal for people to abandon responsibilities, and that makes Luke's (and Thor's) response quite normal, and makes them more like normal people. What makes them heroes again is realizing they were wrong, and responding again to a call for action. I think a lot of people don't like this because they believe that a true hero is always willing to fight and do the right thing. Making Luke more like a real person (flawed) turned a lot of people off.
