There’s BritBox, but I feel like I went through the lineup of that once and there’s not the panel and competition shows I’d want to actually watch.

The thing is, unless my audio is really fucked up, that’s...not remotely simlish.

Aw man, I haven’t thought about lovefeast in years. My college was in the same town as a major Moravian settlement, and just before winter exams everyone stopped studying for an hour and came together for a non-denominational collective deep breath at the chapel and had a lovefeast. Music and singing and delightfully Read more

I sold the first generation of flip phones way back in the day (had to ride my dinosaur uphill through the snow to get to work), and so many came back broken. Because people didn’t want to carefully open and close their phones. They wanted to wrist-snap them open like Captain Kirk and would slam them shut again. So Read more

I mean, we had a president wage an actual literal war against regions that voted against him. Though they did force his hand on that one.

Sawbones podcast also points out that fatality rates trend higher in the early days of an outbreak like this because the only people we are certain have novel coronavirus are the ones in a position to be tested because they’re sick enough to be hospitalized.

‘What IS a Caucus-race?’ said Alice; not that she wanted much to know,
but the Dodo had paused as if it thought that SOMEBODY ought to speak,
and no one else seemed inclined to say anything.

‘Why,’ said the Dodo, ‘the best way to explain it is to do it.’ (And, as
you might like to try the thing yourself, some winter day, Read more
