legal advice to date suggest Baldwin is not legally responsible https://www.nbcnews.com/think/politics-policy/alec-baldwin-fires-prop-gun-killing-halyna-hutchins-responsible-rcna3646 Based on reports so far, if he trusted the crew to hand him a prop weapon and had no reason to believe it was a loade...

How old are those people though? That's what I'm getting at, that younger demos don't have the same attachment as younger ones. I hate to quote the incomparable Shirley Bassey but its history repeating itself. The generation of young people who grew up in the 60s were more vocal in their opposition...

Those 75 million who voted for trump might want to investigate why he's still cancelled from social media https://news.yahoo.com/trump-banned-facebook-twitter-experts-183658051.html So that explains why he launched his own social media site to helo prop up his 2024 bid in 3 years.

Certainly the Hutchins family will be wondering why Baldwin was aiming the prop gun at his staff? It's an accident but it might change the way these props are handled in future, my guess is Baldwin wasn't mindful what happened to Brandon Lee.

Weird, I don't see the same affection for them here. I don't see any dislike of them particularly, but I don't think Y or Z care much about the monarchy. You would think so, given the comments in the street, comedians, news etc. But wait till it comes up for a ballot. At the end of the day, the maj...

Don't want to give away anything but was watching a podcast about the cultural underpinnings of Squid games. The same way the Japanese movie Godzilla was a representation of the intergenerational cultural trauma of nuclear bombs in Nagasaki and Hiroshima. Squid Games is a representation of the inter...

I would assume that is entirely dependent on having a likeable royal family, that isn't overstepping. A dance Queen Elizabeth seems to have been adept at. I feel like Charles and William won't demonstrate the greatest moves so it wouldn't surprise me if one of them is the last King of Canada and/or...

I think regardless of the Queen, while the establishment of the royal family remains, there will continue to be a reluctance among Aussies and kiwis to leave the commonwealth. I agree. There'd be more support for becoming a republic (small as it is, right now) than for outright leaving the Commonwe...

Seems the US police have contributed to a second Australian woman getting murdered. The first was of course Justine Ruszczyk who was shot by a police officer in Minneapolis. That cop is getting released in June next year only serving a few years of his original 12.5 year sentence https://www.mprnews...

Didn't you know that the US right wing generally doesn't trust any polls except their own? And that it wouldn't matter how much evidence there was on the prevailing local opinion, as long as there was anyone shouting tyranny? Not only do these commentators not know geography, their general knowledg...

Why do you think people on the right seem more susceptible to conspiracy theories and other outlandish ideas? It's because they know full well that media and academia are controlled by the left (not in a conspiracy kind of way, but in an overwhelmingly populated by way), and thus any information co...

I have a burger at least a couple of times a week. I do the right thing and order grilled, alternate chicken/beef and switch up an assortment of veggies to maximise nutrients.

Golden rule - more colours in your burger - the more likely you get the correct balance

Here in Australia you can't directly measure IQ for getting a job or a place in university. However, as Fnord mentioned, there are proxy measures that have good concurrent validity to IQ. e.g. problem solving tasks given as part of a job interview or scores on standardised tests in combination with...
