Ever since I got my cell phone, I'm always watching videos. Or posting on forums, LOL. I want to get back to reading books at some point. When I did read, I read a lot of books that were just about people. I can get invested if it's well-written and has interesting, distinctive characters. Humor hel...

I have trouble understanding complex subjects, especially if they're out of my specific area of interest.

However, I also find that things that are supposed to be "simple" often seem dauntingly overcomplicated to me.

I was thinking about when YouTubers say to upvote their video because it helps their channel. I don't believe my individual upvote does anything, but I will do it anyway if I actually like the video. I have no such affection for politicians. Generally speaking, I can't listen to a politician of eith...

I don't think all NTs are caricatures, but I have seen large numbers of locals who have clearly gone to great expense and effort to look and dress as much like caricatures/stereotypes as possible.

Faced with the usual "get out and vote" marketing and social media barrage on this Election Day, I'm wondering who else besides me did not go out and vote today. You can also state your reasons if you like :). ' I'm specifying Americans because today was a mid-term Election Day for us, but...

Also, on my planet, all machines, such as cars, motorcycles, lawnmowers, and leaf blowers, would be required to be as quiet as possible. As soon as I saw the title of the thread, this is exactly the kind of thing I thought of. I'm always amazed at the amount of loud alarms, sirens and grinding mech...

The two political extremes always remind me of each other. The Obama article reminds me (in a strange way) of a Christian propaganda film called "Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas." I would've expected the film to be aimed at criticizing atheists like me, but its main target is actually Chri...

If I could peer into an alternate timeline, I'd be curious to see how COVID would have been spun by the Democrats and Republicans if Hillary had been president while it was happening. I don't know exactly how, but I feel like both their takes would have been different.

MINOR SPOILERS for "She-Hulk" -- Mostly the first episode. The Disney+ series “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” is “controversial” by design. It's a marketing tactic. Meanwhile, sensationalized reactions from the “Anti-Woke” critics of the internet – She-Hulk WORST FAILURE EVER!! ! WOKE Marvel h...

Sorry for the delayed reply. I thought this thread was dead in the water when I posted it :D. Interestingly, I think some of Doug Walker's recent "Untitled Review Show" episodes (done as himself, not in-character) have more of an old-school Nostalgic Critic vibe than "The Nostalgic Cr...

I didn't see it until I was an adult. It is creepy. I don't know if it's an entirely successful film, but what made me appreciate it was seeing other Oz sequels, like the animated "Journey Back to Oz," which do less with the same source material.

I do, too. But Carlin forgets something, or never knew, and possibly didn't ask himself: why is religion there at all? - The neuroendocrinologist Robert Sapolsky considers it nature's anti-depressant. Carlin has had a nice career being angry, he has a nice house, wealth, probably family, I don't kn...

Yikes - sure makes you wonder how they got the jobs they have. It always seems to be more of popularity contest than skill based. Hope you can hang in there if you really need the job. And hopefully in one of their crazier moments they end up promoting you. *fingers crossed* A lot of our managers a...

Today I was called back in the office to be reprimanded for spending "too long" helping a customer the other day. The two managers essentially told me that I need to be more willing to blow customers off so I can focus on my zone. I said I sent photos to the work chat to show that I zoned....

I just saw the first episode "She Hulk: Attorney at Law." Many sitcoms introduce multiple characters in the first episode. "She Hulk" really only introduces Jennifer/She Hulk and even she isn't very well-defined. (Her introduction is making a very generalized speech about social ...
