It took us winning ('winning') Desert Storm for us to get over Vietnam.
Thinking of it that way just sounds like getting over losing a fight to a runt nerd by beating up a kid in a wheelchair. Like there's no way to come out of that not looking like a horrible bully.

Re: Antonio Brown's Used Helmet Emporium -- NFL 2019

The A.B. saga is surreal (at one point this weekend a news page showed like 3 contradictory headlines about him) enough, but I'm left feeling sorry for whoever got cut to make room for him on the Pats roster. Imagine you make the final cut! For a perennial super bowl contender! Then this toxic clown...

Re: Tiny Triumphs

I managed to do an end run around TSA.

This happened once before and I was able to mail it, however this time it was 4:50 am...

Season 2 of Pose has been dissappointing. The Expanse isn't going to drop until December and Better Call Saul, not till 2020.
So what's worth watching/binging? I hear The Boys is pretty good. What else?
Have you seen Babylon Berlin? We've been enjoying that a lot.

Re: What the hell should I be staring at?

So I just finished Neon Genesis Evangelion. I also recently watched Dallos . I'm enjoying catching up on a corner of culture I'm largely unfamiliar with. What are some other anime series I should watch? I'm looking for reasonably complex/mature, minimal 'if my wife walks in she'll think I'm a perv'.

Mark Morgan, acting commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, also defended the Mississippi arrests on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday.

That whole case stunk to high heaven. And of course Trump is happy for the murderer who walked.

As usual Trump isn't making sense. He's criticizing the prosecution for getting him the result he wanted anyway.

I had an absurd moment today- I was cutting off a piece of duct tape and sliced open some flesh on the inside of my finger, and just as this happened and I'm bleeding profusely all over things, the next song up on youtube's autoplay started, The First Cut is the Deepest. Whoa.

I thought "surely not the International Order of Odd Fellows! I mean, not much sets you more apart as odd than atheism". Which unfortunately led me to this site. Because *of course*. Lutherans are so completely paranoid. When I was growing up literally everything was a false god or a cult.
