Funny. HR sends out a black history month thing, but the one black dude, who is an SME, super hard working, loved by all, is being let go. Feb 1, 2023 at 10:56 AM

        That's sad. Here it's like covid? What covid? Maybe a bit too much. Time will tell. At least not too many people, especially kids, are getting shot. America has its specific problems.

      Morbius was not that bad. If it were Disney-Marvel, the critics would have been strong-armed into giving it 66% Tomatometer instead of 15%

        Anyone who gave Blade 1 or Punisher Warzone a negative review and a positive review to a Disney Marvel film is a shill. They all have bad scripts and collapse under their own weight. Only Iron Man 1 manages to even fall apart towards the end like Nolan Batman and The Northman.

        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...

        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.

        They drive BMWs, Porsches, Range Rovers, and Ford Raptors in obnoxious ways instead of pickup trucks in safe ways. Realistically, people don't get mad here because of complacency induced by one party rule and distraction from stress of overall cost of living.

        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.
