  1. @scribus one of the things Biden has going for him is that he’s running against a maniac, if it was Biden vs Romney then Kanye would probably run off with a Ross Perot sized vote haul that ultimately would change nothing but would make him feel like he did something.

  2. @scribus oh yeah that too, I was thinking about the industry at large but also individual people saying "I didn't know this racist thing I actively engaged in was racist" is something I don't often buy

  3. @scribus the sentiment is nice and all but working from the societal equivalent of an F to a C- and calling it a day is not the big move they must think it is

  4. @scribus You could have said that it is a number in base 20.

  6. @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.

  7. @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.

  10. @scribus Ubuntu is dead to me. I rather use Gentoo and compile everything myself than use Ubuntu ever again.

  11. @scribus I saw a video about the last Blockbuster end of last year and I haven't noticed any Pokémon Snap photo printing stations.

  12. @scribus There is PRECEDENT for something like that, bits of I think The Lion King and Pocahontas were animated remotely after an earthquake temporarily shut down Disney’s Glendale campus, but there’s no way it would be able to be coordinated on a large scale long term basis pre-digital era. Al Jean said that he encouraged staff at the Simpsons’ relatively new in-house animation studio to work from home well before California’s stay-at-home orders and work wasn’t slowed in the slightest in spite of that. Could not have happened twenty years ago.

  16. @scribus my thoughts boil down to "pretty OK". If you enjoy the meta-ness of Rick & Morty you'll appreciate it also in Community. I have the series mostly as background noise while I browse the Internet and for that purpose it's great. While The Office was more grounded in its world Community puts up a notch into the absurd. That doesn't work every time but not that much that it breaks the enjoyment. However the main character Jeff's behaviour can be very grating, as well some others. I'm at episode 20 and so far I'm willing to keep it going.

  18. @scribus Peer, slightly older, we went to school together. I’m pretty flippant about it because “tried to” is a key phrase, I was fortunately able to recognize what was going on pretty quickly and remove myself from the situation.

  21. @scribus Do this with a few wooden poles or metal tubes and some wire. You can also use it as a support to lay a nylon or wire mesh on top if you expect hail. http://rainbowdash.net/attachment/875532

  22. @scribus I don't think I'm capable of doing anything without making a joke about it (ie episode 4 had a very frank and real discussion about suicide with the subtext being that I, the creator, am depressed, followed immediately by a joke about it) but the scene as it currently exists is not a "joke"

  23. @scribus no I haven't. I'm not watching the news a lot. This is quite ridiculous and hilarious

  24. @scribus I am wholly sympathetic towards people with those sorts of predispositions but at the same time we are at (arguably past) the point where people act like the Internet should be catered towards them and their sensibilities specifically and it's to the detriment of years of societal progress

  27. @scribus I'd say every age is terrible, just in a different way.

  28. @scribus From the sounds I receive it's a probable explanation. The trampling sounds transfer through the walls up such that I can hear them and my floor is swinging with the trampling giving me some unpleasant proto-seasickness.

  29. @scribus The boys down at Williams Street are still doing god's work I see. Adult Swim might be the basic cable version of Jesus.

  30. @scribus I'm a mostly hygienic reasonable person and already practiced most basic things like keeping distance and washing regularly my hands (going outside, coming home, before a meal...) and being highly aware of not touching the face upon touching others (shaking hands for example). Seeing others doing the same thing on a loosened quarantine is almost impossible. Whenever seeing public rest rooms somewhere else or at work... You lose faith. In my opinion it'll spread even faster because the mass of infected people is higher than at the beginning. 3 months in a tight lockdown would solve this problem, however most people gave up after a few weeks.
