    Let's not get too excited here, I mean, technically it could suck, right?

    No. Even though you might not like it, it still wouldn't suck. Given that it would definitly bring a whole new "WTF!? Why? What? How?"-mindfuck to break your skull on, if you wouldn't like it. That's AE-101!

    He is.

    He is? Wait. Seriously? He's a scientist? Field? 

    This is news for me. Can't remember it ever being mentioned. Sounds unlikely to me. As he's been releasing tunes and touring for quite a while now. Not much spare time to get a PHD. 

    Please, don't be a dick and say he's a scientist in how he crafts his tunes.

    My mother loved breaking bad. I find her shows to watch. I was thinking of suggesting this series. Without her watching the first season. Just explain what happened a bit. I had her watch hereditary. Which I thought was scary and she thought was stupid. lol.  She likes a good series, though. She loved breaking bad. On the fence here

    Start with the pilot and then follow season 1 as long as she likes. If she's really into it, do season 2. If she loses interest, tell her the movie is awesome and way better than season 2. I'd only start with 3 if she could stomach everything that went before.

    i think it matters that the only part of blm the right pays attention to is the less than 1% in which some riot.

    it matters this is politics: everyone has their own idea of what they think matters and how much. it's subjective. you could use polling data to see what most would think. as opposed to inventing your own theories on what people think. that's usually not a very productive way.

    here's some data about BLM. nothing about these recent events. but obviously, it takes time to measure that objectively. And by the time you could measure it, it's probably 4 news-cycles in the past. (in other words, you're better off ignoring the hype of the current news-cycle)

    This decline in public opinion is consistent with a long line of political science research that tells us that the effects of events on public opinion tend to last only for as long as they are at the forefront of the country’s — or, in this case, one group’s — collective consciousness. That also means that without prolonged activism and sustained media attention, the impact of this year’s protests on white public opinion could evaporate entirely.

    nothing good will come from any of this, Trump isn't going do anything they want, and it's likely if they keep it up they'll just ensure another Trump victory - which they probably want, because they're mostly white privileged larping assholes and they won't be the ones effected by another 4 years of Trump, they hate the democrats as much as the republicans anyway. luckily Biden isn't on the side of the defund the police/acab wing of the democrats (which is barely a wing, more of a rump - it's mostly the far left outside of the party driving this), and he's been relatively vocal about taking a sensible approach to police/criminal justice reform rather than the dumb shit most activists are pushing, so with any luck he can get this message across and reassure the majority of middle america which is getting increasingly freaked out about all this. Biden's core message on this needs to be a return to normality, Trump will just see this chaos continue. 

    Yeah, I'm afraid these protests getting out of hand work in Trumps favor. 

    BTW, even Michael Moore is warning Trump might get re-elected again. Getting annoyed with people protesting their way into another Trump term, tbh. Looks to me the US has lost its mind.

    “Sorry to have to provide the reality check again,” he said.

    Moore, one of few political observers to predict Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton in 2016, said that “enthusiasm for Trump is off the charts” in key areas compared with the Democratic party nominee, Joe Biden.
