Re: COVID-19 Pandemic

That's the two weeks that ended up turning into two and a half months , right? Yes; it passed out of the "acceptable" range past the two week mark. But even that's irrelevant, since we now know there were cases as far back as December, which means by the time we started doing all this crap in April...

Re: COVID-19 Pandemic

Meanwhile the CDC, being chief among the panic peddlers I referred to above, haven't been able to keep their own story straight for longer than five minutes at a time, and literally every single prediction they've made about this thing, which have guided most of our public policies, have not just b...

Re: COVID-19 Pandemic

With the USA... well, you can probably predict I have a metric fuckton of things I could say about how the US has handled the crisis, none of it positive, so I won;t comment on it right now. Oh, I think you'd be in good company there....the CDC insisting on making their own tests instead of using t...

Re: COVID-19 Pandemic

Still alive! ...which would be funnier if I wasn't in the immunocompromised category. Oh well! Oregon's got 47 confirmed cases now, including one death over in the Portland area and I think multiple cases in the adjacent county; so the governor's ordered a partial shutdown of a bunch of stuff. On th...

Re: Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker

On a related topic, Phiend asked me to rank all of the Star Wars movies in order of my personal preference. After much thought, I have arrived at the following order: Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back Episode IV: A New Hope Episode III: Revenge of the Sith Episode VI: Return of the Jedi Episode II...

Well, apparently hardware's changed a fair bit since I stopped doing it several years ago...so I think I could use some expertise.

Re: Star Wars: The Force Awakens

... this is a movie people honestly claim is better than Revenge of the Sith? Really? Huh. Maybe well-developed drama is just horribly underrated these days? No, seriously. The whole movie's a nonstop sequence of energetic scenes (which I understand J.J. Abrams is known for)...with next to no develo...

Re: Live-action Teen Titans TV series...

So what I'm reading is, it's only going to have names and setting in common with the show I'd actually care about. Not even tone. That pretty much mandates evaluating it on its own merits...so I suppose I'll have no opinion until/unless I see it for myself.

It may, in fact, even be the single greatest commercial in the history of advertising.
You mean this (since YouTube isn't embed-adverse like Facebook apparently is)?
