@densetsu I really need to finish Obra Dinn. I got as far as I could without having 1hr+ chunks of time to concentrate on it or breaking out the pen and paper.
Had to leave a bit early because reasons. Keith Ellison was great too. What can I say, it was a political rally. Good times. Newspapers will might note how Ilhan made a point of explicitly recognizing Armenian genocide alongside the holocaust, Rwanda, etc. Which, good? (still kinda confused about that vote)
@t54r4n1 I guess, yes, true...
I kept trying to see at as some objective status of the object depicted
but…it’s about…me after seeing it?!?!?
Not sure what (if anything) it says about my daughter that she pleads to see this video on my phone every night before bed: https://youtu.be/O7eQKSf0LmY
To be fair, everything about this video, from Attenborough’s voice, to the lovely music, to the comically gratuitous Foley, is awesome
@densetsu your first toot made sense, but with these screenshots I'm lost again. The first gives the president latitude as to when to open the wallet but does not address when he might close it. The second prohibits the money from being used to aid Russia—was there ever any allegation that he was going to do this?
The Mueller report was basically an impeachment roadmap, and it was meticulously investigated. Now we're throwing that out the window and selling a jumpstarted impeachment campaign to the public on the basis of an as-yet unknown whistleblower complaint? It's almost as if both sides have collaborated to set this up to fail.
I confess I’m super confused and struggling with all this. Has it not been standard for American administrations to use aid money as leverage against other countries for political purposes for the last sixty years? What is new about this? How exactly is it illegal or impeachable in ways all the other shit isn't?
Suppose in 2021 President Warren threatens to withhold aid money from Israel unless they cooperate with an investigation into the Koch brothers. Is that impeachable now?
@t54r4n1 the low caps are normal. I get that. But I’ve had three separate dudes at the U agree to buy, and then bail when they realized they’d have to go to the ATM on two separate days.
The nearly-empty, Wednesday-evening Landmark Cinema reminds me of the 60s version of the hotel in “The Grand Budapest Hotel”. The lonesome lobby person as the only visible staff, the ventilation noises conspicuously audible in the absence of any conversation above a murmur, the unused and thrice-made-over grandeur.
