  1. I love when Dan Harmon says something mean about Trump and people start bringing up that time he humped a baby doll in a Channel 101 sketch ten years ago.

  5. Episode 2 of Star Trek Lower Decks was less awful. Dare I say that it might be good? It is such an abandonment of the classic TNG/DS9/VOY Trek in tone that's still a struggle to make me like the show. But it has potential if it were less krass.

    • @scribus I’m going to /probably/ have two mostly-similar cartoons sitting unlisted on my channel come November, one for a Biden win and one for a Trump win, and then I’ll just release whichever one matches up with reality. Would be nice to finally be the topical one.

    • @mrmattimation 50% of white people, per Newsweek, :eyeroll:

      about 7 days ago in context
    • @scribus eh, that's not exactly uncommon for a Republican, if anything it's a little low. McCain had 55% of whites in 2008, and he lost the election by a bigger margin than any candidate of the 21st century. No Democrat has carried the white vote since at least 1964, and maybe even before that, the data only goes back to 1976.

      about 7 days ago in context
    • @mrmattimation Yeah, but I'm not really concerned about the historicity of the GOP, though. This jackass may be lower than other old white jackasses have been, but when 50% can agree, even in a straw poll, with (vague sweeping arm gesture)? It's more the revelations about the national psyche than it is old stats and current prognostications. I just grew up inherently skeptical of The System, but still -- I used to be able to believe in People, as a whole. This administration has shattered my faith in anything other than entropy. I always kind of knew I was "Brown eyes watching from a White perspective," but the other white faces used to only sometimes let their hatred show. Now, they seem to be hiding even their former pretense of humanity in favor of letting their hate flag take full mast. And... damn, man. Just... damn. I want it over. And I'm almost ashamed of what I'd be willing to do to End it, capital-E.

    • @scribus The world needs a mark at the end of the sentence to signify an sarcastic intent more than ever. I propose the ↓ because everything goes down at the moment.

    • @adiwan Definitely agree on the sarcasm mark being needed. And I actually really like Spanish's leading punctuation, it always seemed weird how English has it at the end to tell you what you should have been doing instead of telling you ahead what to do.

  22. And I feel bad, sometimes, because I say "religious nuts." I don't mean to say all religious folk are off in any way. I mean specifically to refer to the subset of religious people who take it to a nutty degree.

    • @scribus I saw that on The Daily Show With Trevor Noah and The Late Show With Steven Colbert. I had to instantly laugh when I saw that each time. Make-up, firemen breathing masks, masks in hospitals, masks at mask balls, face paint at sports events and Carnival (Mardigras) and Halloween.... ALL SINNERS!

  24. I admit that I was lenient towards this at the beginning and didn't take the whole thing very serious, however I did my usual things like proper hygiene and my natural behaviour of avoiding people, but very soon I did everything right with wearing masks and such. I had underestimated the outcome and spread before. But after all of the evidence I cannot fathom why people can be still so stubborn.

    • @adiwan I've usually been a bit cavalier about new diseases, too, aside from standard flu-season hygiene. I was on team "don't wear a mask if you aren't sick, we need them for front line workers" until the new science came out. And I, too, do not understand people who take the advice of a group of uneducated desert monks who've been dead for two thousand years and their demigod fanfiction over modern science and medicine.

    • @scribus As far as I could seen in the videos nobody has used religion as an excuse. I've seen more messages about being fed up by the government and being told what to do, and being inconvenienced, as well as skepticism of the whole pandemic and the virus itself.

    • @adiwan I guess I don't really know that a major amount have been using religion specifically, but it just seems common in a lot of science denial.

  28. Yesterday i was at my favorite coiffeur because I couldn't stand the long hair anymore that constantly fell into my face and was heating up my back neck. Now my hair is short again such that I do not need my hair drier for a while because it dries quickly on its own. I also gave a bigger tip.

    about 17 days ago from web
    • @adiwan Curious, do you have establishments that might be more of a "barber shop" situation? Like, in the USA, there's sort of a "barber for men, salon for women" thing going on. I kind of like the idea of just a neutral "haircut place."

      about 17 days ago in context
    • @scribus Most places I know in Germany and Poland offer cutting hair both for men and women but they are sectioned off in a way, men front, women back (with or without a wall in between). Smaller places with less traffic do not have that.

      There are only very few places that are highly specialized on either gender, like for men and offering more services for beard grooming.

      My favorite place has men in the front and women in the back. It's a Turkish lead establishment that has some fancy services like pulling eye brow hair with string for both genders, often used by people with monobrow tendencies and the pulling of the hair creates a very clean look without stubbles.

    • @adiwan It's not especially pronounced. I've seen some that were gnarly, like you need peripheral engaged to see anything, but this isn't too bad. I think I'm more tripped out by how wide it is, coming off of the laptop life. :p

    • @scribus I can feel that. When I had my 50'' 4k TV in front of me it was slightly overwhelming. Before that my 24'' 1920x1200 PC display was huge when I upgraded from a 15'' CRT. On the laptop side I highly prefer the 13'' size.
