This makes me very sad - There’s always been one store in town that sold this for years and I always had my fridge stocked and friends would be amazed.

Not to mention the recent decision to go back to phase 2 in 3 cities is ridiculous. All it’s doing is making people migrate to nearby cities to do the things they can’t do at home, like go to the gym or a restaurant. What’s that going to do besides spread infections further and faster than before? As someone who lives Read more

All of this. They aren’t providing enough funding to...pretty much everyone who needs it. Nor are they providing clear guidelines because they need those tax dollars...which they will continue to hoard and not, say, give to schools to help students spread out/improve ventilation (for one).

The reopening phases in Ontario were incredibly rushed. It doesn’t shock me at all that this happened. We’re in the midst of our second wave and the situation is pretty serious in my city but the guidelines continue to be pretty muddy. Businesses are going to operate unless there are direct guidelines against it.

We’re sort of a mess in Ontario right now. My city has what looks like uncontrolled community spread, they basically gave up on contact tracing because there were too many cases, the guidelines become less clear every day, and the provincial government completely wasted all the time that was bought by the lockdown Read more

I’m not sick of the character but I am sick of “the Dark Knight Returns But All The Time And Forever” interpretation of the character. Read more

The first and only time I heard that phrase ‘French exit’ was on the podcast ‘My Dad Wrote a Porno’, a couple years back, when one of the hosts was described as ghosting out of a party without saying her goodbyes. I suppose its a real slang term Brits use but I’ve never encountered that phrase ‘in the wild’.

If you don’t think that was entirely scripted, I’ve got a bridge to sell ya.

Except she’s not a Catholic, she’s a member of a cult. She just claims she’s Catholic because she was before she joined the cult, and saying she’s Catholic sounds better than her cult’s name. They tried super hard to scrub her name from their activities when she was picked, which means they were afraid of their cult Read more

I’m no fan of the Catholic Church by a long shot, but Catholics are a diverse bunch (see the above-a majority support Roe v. Wade!). Anyway, my point is just to provide some data points that will counter the argument that questioning Barrett about abortion or gay rights is inherently anti-Catholic.

It is an interesting article, but I wasn’t referring to it. I’m referring to discussions I had 30 years ago with my Archeology professor. Mostly it amounted to “We don’t know.” Read more

Oh, she was ferociously intelligent (notwithstanding her family background of MANY Generations of brother-sister incest). I think she was the first ruler of the Ptolemaic dynasty to speak Egyptian.

I am offering the fact that this article represents what one woman of color witnessed during the debate. You don’t and that is fine. I will say again, unless you are a woman of color you would not have any knowledge of how white men ignore everyone in the room but other white men. Pence was condescending with his Read more

Thank you Brandy! As a longtime (former) cult member, this is the exact question keeping me up at night as I watch the series.
