Man, I'm so glad every other kid didn't have their own youtube channel when I was growing up.  I never looked at my own generation with such revulsion, but I'm sure we would have been notably awful too given the same media platforms.

YouTube started during my final year of high school, and I never heard mention of Facebook until the very end of that year. Definitely missed a bullet there.

NRA sues NY for calling gun stores ‘non-essential’ amid coronavirus

The current public health emergency does not justify the complete elimination of this right [to bear arms], especially during a time when many New Yorkers have valid concerns about their physical safety and welfare

gov. cuomo doesn't realize that if you have a gun, you can just shoot the virus

All these people expecting constant diarrhea, and then all they get is respiratory problems.

Most/perhaps all televangelists deserve a swift but painful death.

They really are the worst.  The fact they can con so many people while being so ridiculous is really depressing.

Copeland had a particularly unsettling moment in the limelight last year.

I wonder if the American passion for shows and show masters is a relict of a time when preachers where the power centres of American communities. I really think that show business is something archetypical American

One of the first nights in the US was spent in Atlantic City, jesus what a dump.

Checking in saw a 20stone bloke who was 50% Big Pussy from the Sopranos & 50% walking Diadora sponsor. What is it with that type of shit leisure-wear btw? Thought Liverpool had the monopoly here.

Ceiling of the hotel had discoloured, damp looking patches on, minging whiff of stale cigarettes even on the bedding. Turned the tv on while ex had a shower & Joel Olsteen's Sunday service thing came on. Couldn't believe what i was watching. His face, that absolutely unhinged grin that never stopped for the duration i could endure seeing it. Slugging For Jesus by Cabaret Voltaire was my previous default reference for tv evangelists & they were spot on. Seeing it in that room though was the perfect storm of Lynchian strangeness.

Went downstairs to play Blackjack. Got drunk on free, watered-down bourbon & lost $100 slowly getting distracted by spoilt brat/sociopathic ex & a clan of Hasidic Jews arguing the next table over.

Happy days.

Yep. I've been there like 2 or 3 times as a kid. I remember the Boardwalk and the fake Taj Mahal. And my brother playing a VR sim in 1993, which had really basic polygon graphics which were par for the course at the time. I think Caesar's Palace was another one of the casinos. I don't think we ever actually gambled though.

That guy's body language! It looks as if he is right on the edge of strangling someone (that woman) with his bare hands. He is sweating rage out of his pores.
