Re: Another angle on the recent events in America and the world

Am I the only one here that thinks part of the reason the rioting has gotten so out of hand is bc of the Covid lockdown? I agree with Scott Adams that this has set the progress of Black back 10 years. But doesn't take much to make people snap under the conditions we've been under. I’m with you Pug....

Peaceful protest. Copz escalating. Attacking the press.

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

The ideas to calm thing s.....

Don't equate peaceful protests with looting / rioting.

Police don't excelate peaceful protests.

Some protests doing better than others on social distancing and mask wearing.

Recognize that there are real grievances. Stop murdering black people.

Re: Isn't there an Avatar Thread?

If this worked, my avatar is the Avatar. (The last Airbender).

Watched it long ago with my kids. Now on Netflix.

I really enjoyed that show.

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

I should really get on to reading the books. I feel like by reading the books I somehow would enjoy the movies less going forward though. I keep consistently hearing about how much better the books are than the movies. Mentally, I already get some of the "magic" of the movies ruined by weird family...

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

You're asking about the Two Towers movie, not the book? The book's description of that battle was incredibly detailed, and with Tolkein's attention to detail it's hard to spot any logical missteps. I didn't mind the movie's simplification of this part of the book, but you have to accept that a lot ...

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

Smith -- I'm just returning the productivity favor; your post/photo led me to those articles. :) There has got to be something in between in terms of detail and length, but haven't made the time to find. I watched a clip of the battle from the movie, and just thought, why did they wait until the Orc...
