        At least the lead is a good actor, hell on wheels was great. If they start crying in the first episode I'm probably out though.

        My take on the first episode is that it wasn't amazing, but it also wasn't Picard either, lol. But there was some "injustices in the world" thrown in @purr1n .

        LMAO! Yeah, I noticed that. Rock didn't just tell a joke his wife felt publicly humiliated by. He participated in it. If we saw the moment he looked over to her I think we would have seen a look of betrayal from her, and his face redden. His reaction feels like an over compensation for his own blunder.

        Not just weird, contradictory. Don't you have to have some measure of honor before it can be protected? Is not Hollywood all about leaving behind Neanderthal concepts such as honor? You have to give credit to Mr Smith for at least realizing they're supposed to be something there worth protecting...

        Genghis Khan according to the legends/stories was one of the worst opponents ever regarding psychological warfare. In his age it was life or die, no nuance just choose one. Well every human has that "switch" in his/her psyche. War is one of the worst things humans can do.

        Chopsticks sticking straight up from a bowl is disturbing to East Asians - incense used in funerals, etc. Even if one doesn't know the exact reasons why, it feels odd, as if something is off with the Force, upon seeing it.

        One newspaper reports that the moment the kid got off the ice, the coach Eteri Tutberidze started yelling at her: “Why did you let it go? Explain to me, why. Why did you stop fighting? You let it go after that axel. Why?” This meets the dictionary definition of psychotic.

        A couple of cycles ago the IOC almost dropped wrestling. I heard there is an event in this winter Olympics called "big air", which sums it all up in so many ways. I don't even like the athletes that much as they play the political/media/image/$money$ game to the same degree as all the others.

        I think ship builders and marine architects, etc, are super-skilled, highly professional people. This company is used to building big, expensive, boats. Maybe it's odd that this wasn't sorted out from the start. Overlooked? I'd suspect that they have a department that sorts this stuff out.

        the Doctors Rogan interviews sometimes makes a innaccurate statement. Big whoopdie doo. This whole thing is not because " Joe spread disinformation". After seeing the McCullough and Malone interview, its quite evident the establishment is worried about all the true information being shared in those interviews that isnt being told in the MSM. This is why the media is trying to demolish Rogan credibility.
