Come and defile us!. WE WANT it to end in cruel destruction. We deserve only cosmic spite when the planets do align and the signs are here! Let them come and take their place, sweep humanity aside like the diseased garbage we are.

Let us chant:
Zi dingir anna kanpa! Zi dingir kia kanpa!
When the planets do align? There's one planet and one moon involved. I refused to be invaded by any space monster that doesn't know basic astronomy.

(I am now imagining the Elon Musk of space monsters, wasting resources on stupid vanity invasions that don't work)

I don't get why people get their panties in a huge fucking twist when they completely misunderstand what the Tomatometer on Rotten Tomatoes means, when everyone seems to immediately get what Steam Ratings mean.

I wonder if British people started dropping their h's because it's proper to use 'an' rather than 'a' before a word beginning with 'h' and it's just awkward to say.

Somehow got my family member to proudly admit they are a holocaust denier, drink their own piss as well as putting it on wounds to "heal faster" during a rare heated confrontation today. Fuckin hell they are so gone, way more than anticipated. And knowing the many dehumanisation tactics these belief structures rely upon to shield the believers from criticism, am unable to feel safe around them after this in case they're talked in to whatever drastic "fixing" measures by their local conspiracy friends who also share some pretty scary views on vaccinated people and anyone else who challenges them. I could be a clone or a demon or possessed or mind controlled by bill gates chips or a matrix NPC or whatever, am not sure which it'll be but it will be something meaning being cut off completely is the least concerning possible outcome now. Yet if given chance to go back in time, it'd still be the same cause the alternative is allowing literal fckin hooky nazi ranting to go unquestioned and implicitly agreed with more than it already has (sadly is how it works in their minds). Made sure to be careful avoiding insulting or condescending language, spoke as measured as could've hoped to be, tried to add constructive suggestions for critical thinking as facts are a long lost cause either way, regrets have been minimised as far as they can. Regardless, shits seriously fucked.

Being in North Texas, I'm in an ideal place to witness the total solar eclipse on April 8th. While I am intrigued and will watch it, I'm no where NEAR as excited as a lot of people. They're traveling from all over the nation (some from around the world) just to see it here. Places like parks and vineyards are selling tickets for events with food and music, etc. Yeah, people are paying money to other people to look at the sun.

Anyway, my thought in the shower this morning is that it would be wildly hilarious if they somehow got the date wrong. Like everyone's all anxious, getting ready, buying plane tickets, renting hotels, and on April 7th: "BREAKING NEWS!!! WE FUCKED UP!! THE ECLIPSE IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW!! GET OUTSIDE QUICK!!" It'd be glorious chaos; I can just imagine all the saps who left their glasses at home running outside to risk a glance with regular sunglasses or peek bare-eyed for a couple of seconds.

Local weatherman said last night that it will likely be cloudy the day of the eclipse. We'll still see the unnatural darkness, but still... lol.

It'll certa
Do clouds obscuring the eclipse make it even better? :unsure:
It'll certainly make it more ominous. I'm just cracking up thinking about all the eclipse glasses dealers skipping town with with pockets full of cash while we lot stand around staring at clouds. And man, all those suckers who traveled here from hundreds and thousands of miles away! 😂 I don't typically get schadenfreude... I get it now.

April Fool's day is just The Purge for bad comedians stuck in middle management. For the safety of the coworkers who don't politely laugh back.

Nintendo should make the Switch successor really shitty, and call it the Switcheroo

What's the difference between 'looking at' something and 'watching' something. They mean the same thing but feel different.

I'd saying the only difference would intensity of intent. When I "look at" something, my eyes can easily drift to something else without the slightest thought, but if I'm "watching" something, I am focused and fixated on it specifically. That said, I think Thaluikhain makes a good point; "looking at" something can merit the same level of intensity of "watching" something if you consider you might "look at" a painting to examine its every detail, but as it's not moving, it makes no sense to say you "watch" one.

Taylor Swift's fanbase is effectively the antithesis to MAGA Republicans, i.e.: both are fanatic cults. If she were to run for president against Trump, the ensuing civil war would bring this country to its knees amidst a sea of fraud, grabbed p*ssies, breakup tracks, and Ticketmaster's systems failures. Meanwhile, rational and sane individuals like myself would be piled up at both the southern and northern US borders creating an emigration crisis to balance the immigration crisis we're dealing with right now.

Wait until you get to the Beyonce fan base. Good news is last I checked her and Taylor Swift get along fine so the fans don't have problems with each other. The beyoncé fans will keep them balanced and in their place. As a Linkin Park & Gorillaz fan, I never have to worry about this. Absolutely don't have the idiotic fans, but most of the fans are respectful and are very sane.

Looking I think feels passive. Like, when Vincent Vega goes to pick up Mia for their night he cools his heels in the living room. He looks around the place but I don't think he truly takes anything in. Ask him ten minutes later to describe the living room and he'll give you a blank look. That is with the caveat that Vincent is a fuckin' idiot.

Now when Vincent and Jules are in the diner and Pumpkin and Honey Bunny (or Ringo and Yolanda) start jacking the joint, Jules watches them. He is in fact taking in the details. How they operate, how they talk to each other and assessing on where he can take this situation.

Oh way I have of telling if I am dreaming or not is to get a calculator and multiply a pair of two digit numbers together. A calculator should give the right answer immediately, but then I have to do it myself in my head, taking a few seconds. The answers should match if I'm not in a dream.

Is this a common issue for you? Being unable to determine if you are asleep or awake? And what if you just made a mistake?
