  3. In the past the US was deterring Mexicans coming into the country. Now (a part of) Mexico has closed the border to the US halting US citizens from coming to their country. Canada has also closed the border.

        • George Soros created covid-19 so that Donald Trump would get blamed for it so that Hillary Clinton would be elected President so that Obama can reign supreme as America’s emperor, and Joe Biden’s presidential campaign is there to distract Bernie Sanders and now Hillary Clinton is able to move on in the presidential campaign unimpeded.

        • Originally I formed a plan to travel to Japan or the USA for my Summer vacation at the end of last year. Lucky me who had not purchased any tickets. A friend of mine wanted to Canada in a few weeks and ordered the tickets long time in advance but has to cancel them with a hefty cancellation fee (he had multiple flights throughout North America).

            • OMG. Netflix has not fixed the audio of "Drunken Master" for two years. I wanted to see it with the Chinese audio track, however there are a lot of parts which have English for no apparent reason. The FIRST scene has English! I read that an older DVD had the same issue.

                • @scribus iirc the ruling was that government accounts (which includes Trump’s personal account, due to some records act that encompasses both his and Obama’s Twitter history) are public forums and therefore cannot block people, but PRIVATE political accounts are not. IE, the state party can block users because the party is not affiliated with the government, and “campaign accounts” (which most Reps tend to use instead of their office accounts) can do so as well.

                • @adiwan Thank god Tolkien didn't live to work in the medium. Then again, maybe "The Hobbit" would justify three movies...

                • @scribus The Hobbit is a short book but it compresses time a lot and a lot and things are not very well told because they come somewhat out of nowhere. 3 movies is a bit much, I can agree that 2 would be very fine.
                  Reading Inu Yasha to the end was easier than Lord of the Rings. I HATE all those lengthy scenic descriptions in LOTR and my brain fades out too quickly to get past them. LOTR would work a lot better as a comic because those would be held to a brief instance and not minutes and multiple pages. To be frank: Inu Yasha has also big pacing issues. It could have been easily cut in half without losing too much of its substance. Towards the end it got DBZ-like when it comes to stretching the content and delay the inevitable.

              • Cops were called on one of my employees today. He’s autistic, so he makes a lot of noises when he’s alone and somebody heard and thought he was arguing with someone. Cops showed up, immediately decided the black kid was the reason they were here instead of trying to ask questions. Fortunately we were able to explain the situation before it got out of hand but god damn that cherryes me off.

                        • New Pokémon Snap? I'm gladly waiting for all the reviews. Especially I'm waiting for all the reviewers and people bashing it for being too repetitive, short, and unoriginal. The N64 game can be played through within a few hours, and even then there was barely any varying gameplay beyond gushing over 3-dimensional Pokémon jumping around and abusing them with throwables. I expect the new one being similar in scope feature-wise. The right evolution of the game has to be at least a semi-open world with day-and-night cycles and a focus on stealth and exploration, like a real animal and nature photographer.

                          • @adiwan The largest amount of gameplay time came from trying to find a Blockbuster with one of those proprietary printing booths. They should integrate it with Pokemon Go, lol. (Hey, I wonder if that Last Blockbuster Standing has one of the printers...?)
