I liked the original Dune movie, but I liked the mini-series better.
I'm hoping the new Dune movie later this year is good too.

Narcissism and Agression? I mean DUH!?! Didn't they watch American Psycho?

Yeah, but they're not talking about psychopathy. Just otherwise normal people who are more narcissistic than average. Even most psychopaths aren't violent per se, just lacking in empathy.

I've felt for a while now that Trump embodies textbook narcissim. I happen to feel he embodies a lot of sociopathic tendencies as well.

The only way Trump isn't running is if he is dead or in jail. I'd be fine with either of those events.
I'll cheer either of those outcomes.
I don't think you'd be alone in that

There's only one way to stop incursions into our airspace. We must build a wall. And more sanctions against space aliens.

Can we get the Grays to pay for it?

From the rumors I've heard, I really hope Bezos not only buys MGM, but does his absolute best to embarrass Trump.

I loathe Trump, I hated him before he was president, but seeing the disaster the GQP and Trump have threatened to turn this nation into, is super depressing. I just hope the Left/Liberals/et al can win through in 2022 and 2024. We're royally f***ed if they win either or both.

This skirts closely on "football fans are racists". Americans are realizing their racial insensitivity as a culture, not any one generalization of Americans types of fans. Some folks are in denial...usually the ones that use "woke" as a bad word really often as if learning new things and improving yourself as an individual and a member of society is a bad thing. Some folks like their ignorance and grasp on to it tightly. C19 kinda showed us that, if we didn't accept it already.

A lot of people are racist. Period. We have all had bouts of insensitivity or whatever as well; but I'd be lying to say that I didn't believe that as a general rule--coming from Texas, Nebraska, I've seen a lot of negativity coming from football fans in particular.

I've never cared for football, but its fans are the kinds I can see getting upset over wokeness. But to me it's them finally acknowledging their racial insensitivity.

The Oscars was hilariously bad, lmfao. I think everyone can agree to that. Ha, and I remember a while ago there was a discussion on how "go woke go broke" isn't a thing. XD
Nice try but I'm fairly certain the pandemic had a hell of a lot more to do with things not going well than anyone being "woke". You know, I have to hand it to the right -- they do a fantastic job of creating annoying labels for left leaning ideas. Then again, I have no idea where that term came from so maybe I'm giving them more credit than they deserve...

I think it's more to do with people not giving a **** about awards shows in general. I've NEVER liked them. Seeing a bunch of self congratulating people. That said there is a lot of talent out there that deserve recognition, but unless I'm part of that venue, I could not care less. I think the right tries to make more out of it than it is, I think it's just society moving on in general.

Is there some particular reason that can't just keep them in a display case and put them in a paper bag when someone wants some?
Yes, of course, there is a reason. Doing it your way would increase the labor costs -- far easier and efficient to package them all at once than to have employees being interrupted from other work to do them individually. Additionally, convenience is king. The customer doesn't have to wait to get an employee's attention and then wait for them to help. Is the additional labor and convenience cost sufficient reason? *shrug*

What the hell are you talking about?No it doesn't. You take the rack put of product, put it in the display, ensure bags and tongs are there and its done. Your way means they're having to go get the boxes, bring them back, assemble the boxes, then put the products in the boxes, label the boxes, stack the boxes on shelves. Your way of doing it costs 10 times as much and takes 10 times as long, and it's 100 times more wasteful.

I agree, plastics are bane and they're everywhere. I hate it when they have a plastic bag inside a cardboard box full of product. Anywho, as far as the boxed item with a window, you could like keep them in bag and put a picture of said product where the column of product is. Business functioned just fine without plastics for centuries. Wax paper, particle board, wood, tin, aluminum, glass, even glass with plastics sandwiched in them would still reduce the amount of plastics. I mean, I get that plastics are super convenient but it's already affecting the health of the planet and now it's affecting animal life health (including humans). Instead of allowing companies to pass the buck on recycling we need to regulate their manufacturing to limit waste or at least use something that will eventually degrade.

I'm starting to think we should shred the plastic and using it for building material or incinerate it for power generation and capture the resultant gases.

.... snip for pertinence ....
This officer made a mistake during normal office hours.
People make mistakes, something has to be figured out so events like this don’t happen in the future.
Whether it’s putting the firearm on the non-dominant side, changing what a taser looks like (there is no need for it to even remotely resemble a handgun or more training)
But even after doing all that there will still be accidents and mistakes, People are not infallible.

Pretty much agree 100% it was sad and the body cam footage captures her shock at the situation. Overall a bad situation especially with the trial of George Floyd going on at the same time.

We got Pfizer. First injection 5 days later cold like symptoms for a day, felt fine after. Second injection next day had aches and fever, again lasted a day then totally fine. Wife had same shot but never developed symptoms.

EDIT: wife just commented the 7 clots were all women and they're starting to think it may be linked to birth control. No source to give though.
