But it makes sense you can't bring concealed weapons on a transport. My fridge logic wonders how the scanners for that work, I can't imagine that beskar is radio transparent, and with all the other weird technological stuff built into the armor, it's essentially a weapon unto itself. I kind of like...

Okay, places like Gamestop and working fast food or even Target or Walmart want you to apply online and work there is unprofessional. But yet they under pay you and they are a big cooperate business. Yes there are exceptions and the companies you mention go through online applications + F2F intervi...

Alaska was never part of Russia traditionally, wasn't filled with Russians and wasn't part of their identity. Russia believed that America or the British Empire would eventually conquer Russian America and making a deal with the US would benefit America at British expense. Essentially this would le...

You're aware Russia sold Alaska, right? Even if Russia could try to make claims on some neighbours there's no way to frame a valid claim on Alaska.


Not sure why the Russians didn't lease Alaska like the way the Chinese did with Hong Kong?

As the Ukrainian government hopes to kill as many Russian troops as quickly as possible so as to make the Russian public reluctant to risk the lives of their young, that lady might just play her part in that plan if Putin decides to go all the way. I find it interesting that China has recently cros...

These days many big cooperate businesses only want you to apply online. Back in 2007 I applied in person at so many locations and that was before everything went to the internet but it wasn't much longer after that when internet became a necessity than a luxury. Sorry I was referring to casual/unpr...

But wokes only want to cancel bigots that have harmful beliefs. I guess they are a big majority which is why it's scary for my country so we're fighting back. That is why Jan 6th 2021 was very scary. 75 million voted for Trump in 2020. Me and my husband have different thoughts about it. I think tha...

what I'm saying is that a healthy society would have shunned him and his message from early on, 'made him a victim of cancel-culture' as the right calls it and he would have just been an obscure failed artist and far-right crank known for writing books your crazy WWI vet uncle reads. But that's als...

I rather enjoyed the scene where he had to go through security to get on the transport, they had some nice bonuses in the stuff he had to put in the tray for people with eagle eyes (he has a WWII Liberator disposable pistol for some reason), plus I've literally had that happen, with nearly as much ...

Of course anti-trans arguments fall apart in open, honest, logical debate. That does not mean people will stop spouting anti-trans arguments, because these people are not logical. And the result of expressing anti-trans is trans people being bullied, being kicked out of their homes by their parents...

There's a big problem for those switching from benefits to paid work which is the travel/job site issue. In order to survive you may need 2-3 casual jobs to pay rent/buy food/maintain a quality of life. To knock on doors you need to live closer to the city centre to seek work otherwise you also nee...

Complaining about minorities in movies when they hope to sell more tickets to those minorities is just conservatives complaining about the results of a free market. Good point, There are arguments on both sides, Since the biggest market for television/movies are white then it makes sense that movie...

Well I think also one of the reasons why woke themes in movies do not work well nowadays is that themes of racism and sexism are old and cliche, and it's very been there seen that in movies and storytelling. Even if they are hot topics in real life in terms of zeitgeist, for entertainment purposes,...
