Out of the Blue

Well, the local weather called for winter nastiness, and this does not look like a false alarm, as the snow has already started falling out there. This is called Winter Storm Maya, so I guess we should be thankful this didn't show up in 2012 and end the world. As it is, this doesn't seem like a snowpocalypse on any level. But they are calling for one to three inches of snow and ice followed by freezing rain, so road conditions will probably be pretty bad. Please take care and stay safe if you are in the affected areas.

Line this guy up with those flat earthers. We don't need people this dumb around using up our finite resources.
It was only hours before he admitted it was "a joke". A purposeful troll trying to get over-reactions...

And even then it remains funny, just think about what that would actually entail, if you cook your own food especially, lots of things need rinsing and your hands happen to be there.... so yeah ;p

He was kidding. Even Fox News hosts get humor right on occasion.

Fucking anti-vaxxers, god damn. I can't even read the news on a gaming site without becoming furious at humanity.

Remove all religious and personal exemptions from vaccinations(True mediocal exemptions have to be allowed obviously). Don't want to vaccinate, get deported to fucking Greenland.

it's shocking how much support there is for a movement that has literally zero science and facts behind it. nevermind measles; i wanna know when did stupid become so incredibly infectious. it must be pathogen based because there's no other reason it should be this prevalent.

While they are decent showrunners, they had GREAT material to work with. At least with Game of Thrones.
Not to mention plenty of input from the creator for most of the shows run. It took a hit in quality the last few seasons as GRRM had less and less influence IMO.

What do you have against Greenland?

Yeah, a remote village somewhere in northern Alaska would prevent an international incident. Greenlanders are all vaccinated, after all.

There was an interview on NPR yesterday with a high school sr who was getting vaccinated, despite his mother having never had him vaccinated. She fucking guilt tripped the shit out of him, saying he was slapping her in the face by getting it done. He did it anyway. He sounded intelligent and well spoken. I have a bit more hope for humanity now.
