My wife is a nurse and she and her unit went through absolute fucking hell April and March. It was the most stressful weeks of my life and I wasn’t even going in — just knowing she was going in every goddamn shift, getting exposed with inadequate PPE, and then coming home and possibly exposing my daughter and myself.

In Mary Trump’s defense - the most damming aspects of Trump rat fucking her and her brother out of the Fred Trump Sr inheritance were public knowledge. Read more

Shoddy writing/reporting on CNN’s part. Numerous outlets have described the crimes for which he was sentenced as “murder” (accurate) and “rape-related charges” which is broadly true but misleading. Those charges were for “kidnapping to commit robbery” — but not the rapes themselves. To further confuse matters, Read more

He did not plead guilty to the rapes because he was not charged for the rapes. He admitted in court to the rapes. There is a legal difference.

It is fucked up on both a symbolic and a practical level. Read more

If I understand correctly, due to the statute of limitations, while he’ll serve a life sentence (multiple life sentences?) for the 13 murders, he won’t serve one second of jail time for the 50-plus rapes he’s admitted to. That is fucked up. Read more

I hate to rag on someone’s appearance, especially since I look like Paul Giamatti and Fat Vin Diesel had a baby, but I’m pretty sure this guy is just here to fix my computer.

I find this seesawing between light comedy and tragedy is a common trait in Korean cinema, something that first gave me whiplash with Bon Joon-ho’s The Host. It used to bother me but now I’ve learned to just go with it.

I knew a guy in college who got locked into some crazy competition re: who could spend the least amount of money on food. He exclusively ate three bowls of cornflakes a day. After a few months he began to come down with mysterious symptoms and went to campus health. He was informed by the med staff — who were at first Read more

Corporate culture incentivizes short-term gains for management/executives, even at the expense of common sense sustainability. I think it’s why capitalism gets a bad wrap, when what we have essentially moved towards here in the US is a very extreme, unrestrained strain of capitalism (thanks in large part to that Read more

It is frankly mind-blowing they gave Bill Clinton a speaking spot here in the year 2020. And this isn’t some small-tent circular firing squad attack on centrism or neoliberalism. Read more

The “girl power” moment of Endgame felt so contrived and, on Marvel’s part, unearned. I can understand if young girls saw that scene and were excited to own a moment like that; but I honestly found it insulting knowing how many missed opportunities there had been and time had passed between Iron Man and Captain Marvel Read more

I’ve seen this very pic of these goofs perhaps 100 times and I’m only now realizing dude is barefoot which just makes him look goofier with his slacks and machine gun

I have this ongoing debate with folks about the level of complicity for people who claim to disagree with Trump, or at least not agree with all of his policies, but still vote for him. In my book you’re just as bad. At this point the dude’s making the destruction of the USPS one of the core pillars of his policy Read more

I want someone to ask him though. You know? Specifically I want someone throw this quote in his face and get his reaction: “I think there will be a lot of people apologizing to him at the end of his first four years” Read more

This is fascinating considering Ratzenberger has a history of championing the Republican party and went all in for Trump in 2016.
