Richard Crenna in Rambo III gives a great rebuttal to the neo-cons

Just binge-watched Broadchurch, season one **No Spoilers**

It was amazing. Do yourself a favor and check it out.

Aren't tater tots just another version of french fries?

What's the difference?

“It’s easy to confuse 'what is' with 'what ought to be', especially when ‘what is’ has worked out...

in your favor.”

The definition of privilege.

I feel sorry for Kim Kardashian

No one is paying attention to her.

Please don't mock Lindsay Graham because of his mannerisms. Mock him for being a fucking war monger.

Whatever his gender orientation/identity is, they are not relevant. His belief that we should invade and bomb any nation on planet earth at any time is very fucking relevant.

to change "preferences"

Question about Uber.

How do you know or how can you protect yourself from a driver that could be a serial killer or rapist or both? At least with taxis, there's some sort of documentation that you can rely on and the company can be held civilly liable which incentivizes them to do a background check.

An odd thing about the show, "The Comedians"

The premise of the show is about Billy Crystal and Josh Goud playing themselves in a fictional sketch show. The running gag on the show is the awkwardness between a young and old comedian. There are several references in the show to Crystal's and Goud's past career successes and failures. Lots of references.

In the pilot, Billy fires the real-life director, Larry Charles, also playing himself, and Billy asks for an old male friend of his to take over directing the sketch show. His old friend, Steven Webber (not playing himself) shows up as a trans-gendered female, and Billy acts very awkwardly about it.

Now, here's the odd thing. In the 1970s, on the network sitcom, "Soap", Billy Crystal played a Gay man who was about to have sexual re-assignment surgery. He broke ground with that role. Yet, his current show, which makes several references to his career, says nothing about that when Steven Webber's character shows up. And, Billy is taken aback by his being trans-gendered.

I found that really odd.

Dog solves a problem.

A fact that will freak you out. In less than three years...

there will be a population of people among us who will be able to vote, but they never lived in the 20th century!
