  1. fingers crossed. i think to get anything to stick and send him where he belongs will required a concerted effort and people sticking to the law and him getting no special treatment.
  2. bring charges.. sure.. but he's got a lot of friends who would get in the way if possible. like they did during meuller report witholding docs and all that..
  3. Strawberry Privilege and Hasdallen Light are good. nice bassline in strawberry privi.. in some tracks the vocals are the deal breaker for me and in others it's sublime. i'd expect this stuff to show up in movies and shows. it's ripe for that because it's weird but somehow familiar and nostalgic or at least evokes something familiar. idk how to explain. but it's like the twin peaks juxtapositions of teenage melodrama and real trauma. and just a joy to listen to at times. i'm glad this music exists. seems like some people really love the hell out of all of it. i wonder how stuff like this will sound to me in 10 years or even just 5.
  4. ‘We’re thinking landslide’: Beyond D.C., GOP officials see Trump on glide path to reelection https://www.politico.com/news/2020/06/15/trump-glide-reelection-republican-officials-316457 “The more bad things happen in the country, it just solidifies support for Trump,” said Phillip Stephens, GOP chairman in Robeson County, N.C., one of several rural counties in that swing state that shifted from supporting Barack Obama in 2012 to Trump in 2016. “We’re calling him ‘Teflon Trump.’ Nothing’s going to stick, because if anything, it’s getting more exciting than it was in 2016.” meanwhile.. https://www.salon.com/2020/06/21/republican-strategists-are-starting-to-panic-and-fear-a-historic-wipeout-in-november-report_partner/
  5. it's a fairy tale. he'll never get close to prison. one of his kids might but also doubtful. it would take all three branches of government + intelligence services to even bust him for his numerous financial crimes for which typically no one goes to prison for long unless they're doing it to protect others and not talking so getting a harsher sentence. that's not trump's MO. but it would take a lot to bring charges and seize assets and crumble his house of cards.
  6. so the pipe is actually brass. weirdly thin and brittle but covered in chrome. I ended up calling a plumber. couldn't get the clog out from where it was. got all the under sink drain pipe replaced to the wall drain. it is now a sturdy PVC pipe and i hope to never again have this first world problem.
  7. the filters people use on their faces.... there's a couple people i know locally. not close with but i'd see them out and we'd chat.. casual acquaintances.. and they post these pics of themselves doctored to fuck and i had to mute or unfollow them before i said something stupid. "that's not even your face anymore.. you do not look like that nor is it even necessary to do that" but i get it.. people have a fucked up image of themselves and are insecure or who knows what. it's frustrating and sad and annoying.

  9. meanwhile the trump campaign is spending like $2million a month on FB ads.
  10. well, that issue has been around a long time. Spike Lee made a movie about it. School Daze.
  11. it doesn't seem normal unless you're in america. someone pulling a gun over some dumb shit is par for the course. seems like saying "ok fine.. look i'm sorry i bumped into your daughter.. didn't mean anything by it. it was an accident" or whatever the fuck happened.. and then just leaving. instead of pulling a gun. the high road doesn't exist in america anymore. talking about this shit.. ugh. viewing, analyzing etc all these confrontation videos.. why do i do it? time to stop this behavior.
  12. sounds like a lot of paperwork for someone. a shame that someone in these kinds of situations can't take the high road and de-escalate or whatever seems appropriate. ya never know when someone is going to snap though.. based on whatever life experiences they've had. you never know how some life experience is going to imprint on people for a lifetime.. be it some violence in their past, bullying, or being assaulted or abused etc.. it can make a person have a hair trigger and fearful of many situations.. it sucks to be on the losing end of a violent confrontation.

  14. bLaCk PeOpLe aRe ScArY USA should desegregate neighborhoods same way it integrated schools.
  15. weird. everyone is packing. scared of everyone else. it's so fucked. no idea what happened here. there's a scam where people jump behind a car and pretend you hit them and then they sue the driver etc.. happened to a friend at the gas station down the street and one of thegas station attendants busted the dude who jumped behind my friend's car.. not saying that is what happened here.. regardless why jump out w/a gun if that's what happened?
  16. fucken geniuses. young people are getting put on ventilators for weeks some times. not to mention the fucking spreading. seems like we need some kind of police who swing in and foam all these people w/expanding foam that locks them in place. could be like Deniro's HVAC repairman in Brazil but w/expanding foam.
  17. just fund the crazy horse monument and call it even (as far as monuments go). Rushmore is pretty underwhelming. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crazy_Horse_Memorial https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/crazy-horse-memorial
  18. i can't wait for the next season of south park.
  19. different kind of plastic. it's actually some kind of weird composite that is kind of brittle and it's chromed. the J part of the pipe is the part that has a hole in it. i thought i was being careful. had the end of the hanger bent so it was a loop and thought i'd be safe just nudging around and snagging the big clod of goop.
  20. ignored my own advice about putting a wire hanger down the sink drain to snag the clog.. i got most of the clog out but did exactly the thing i warned against and poked a hole in the plastic u-bend pipe so now have to sort that shit which is a pain because it's hard to get at sandwiched in between the sides of the pedestal sink. i am idiot.
