Probably harder because this one was indeed so cruel. One thing to make a cliched and nasty comment about trans people, another entirely to literally mock someone’s abuse and death that literally just happened. Much harder to apologize for being a genuinely shitty human being when you can’t try and just pass it off as Read more

I’ll sound condescending (because I am), but it genuinely blows my mind that anyone would take out a loan to get a car unless absolutely necessary. Or that anyone other than someone with a paid off home loan and maxed out retirement fund (if there is such a thing) buys a brand new car. Read more

Her associations with sex offenders are definitely disturbing, but I’m also deeply concerned that someone with her level of wealth spends any time in a bedroom where the bed needs to be directly up against the wall.

Exactly. No one can explain to me what harm is done to Jeff Bezos if we were to institute a law tomorrow that says any individual wealth over $1 billion will automatically be directed to fund health, education and environmental protection programs. He will still be insanely wealthy beyond the reach of 99.99% of humans Read more

And the faux drama about them missing Harry’s uncle’s 60th birthday, and that’s somehow an offense to his grandmother? Read more

We can be grateful that Bezos is donating his $10 billion while also noting that the fact that he even *has* $10 billion to give is a symptom of a terribly broken system. Read more

Oh yeah I can find it if I look for it, but it’s not typically seen in bars or on a restaurant wine list in Sydney unless it’s something really unique. Read more

Yeah true, makes sense that countries that don’t have an established wine-making industry might be open to pretty much anything, including American products.

Are American wines much of a thing outside of the U.S. or North America? You almost never see them available in Australia, the focus is on Aussie/NZ wines plus some good stuff from Europe and South America.

I hope you’re right as I love Warren, but I think if/when Bernie clinches the nomination we will also see him behave in ways that aren’t entirely aligned with his purist vibe that he’s been able to maintain in the past. Going into a general election as the Democratic candidate is an entirely different ballgame than Read more

I don’t know that he’d ask Warren to be VP. She is awesome (and my preference), but given they court a lot of the same voters via their policies already, I’d expect him to pick someone who appeals to the more moderate Democratic voter.

There are still a couple of candidates I would prefer to Sanders, but he clearly has the momentum and assuming that stays the case then he should be the nominee. I think that the amount of dirt the GOP has ready to throw at Sanders will hand Trump the election and possibly give him back the House as well, but there’s Read more

Unless you hear or know otherwise, let’s give everyone the benefit of the doubt and assume that this is how they are comfortable operating as an extended family.

But also, they are paying for these memes...that make Bloomberg look sad and desperate? Other than awareness, perhaps a reminder that Bloomberg is in the race, I don’t actually see how this helps his standing with young people. I’ve seen these memes flood insta in the last day or two and genuinely thought they were Read more

Yeah I’m very confused. I don’t meant to attack you in any way, but your entire comment was about what other people think and not what you actually want or believe. The primaries are where we get a chance to vote for what we actually believe in, the general election is where we choose the lesser of two evils or Read more

Ugh ours was frozen in dry ice and it still reeked, can’t imagine what it would smell like at room temperature!
