Re: Calling 2020 for Entropy

Starting in November or so, I started seeing a few "Any Functioning Adult 2020" signs and stickers, which I assumed were anti-Trump signs. However, in the last two months, many more have started showing up. Are these also being used as anti-Biden signs? Because if people are arguing that Biden is fu...

Sometimes the second chance pays off though. I didn't care for the Coens' True Grit remake the first time, but I watched it again last week and it's actually really good once you get past the language barrier.

I have enjoyed Ben Stiller in Zoolander, Dodgeball, and Tropic Thunder. I think that's it, although he might've also been entertaining in Starsky and Hutch.

A few days ago, I was scrolling through the recent deaths on wikipedia and saw this: "Kiing Shooter, 24, American rapper, COVID-19" I thought, "that's terrible, that's very young," and didn't look into it further. However, when I refreshed the page later that day, it said: "Kiing Shooter, 24, Americ...
