@anildash:

If they scrolled the names of the Americans who died in this pandemic the same way U2 did for victims of 9/11 during the Super Bowl in 2002, they would have to stop the game & run names on the screen for twelve and a half hours.

Everything Great About Avengers: Age of Ultron:

And no matter how jaded and cynical I become, I pray that I can enjoy sequences like this until the day I die. Because if you never feel that little kid inside you jumping up and down in front of the screen, you’re watching movies wrong.

@factsweird:

In ancient Athens, the first democracy, they had a process called ostracism, where once a year the people could vote on the politician they thought was most destructive to the democratic process. The “winner” was banished from Athens for 10 years.

@davenewworld_2:

While Americans argue if healthcare is a basic human right or not, the Netherlands subsidizes sex for disabled people by paying for their prostitutes 12 times a year. In other words, sex & intimacy are human rights in Amsterdam but basic healthcare isn’t a human right in America.

At the end of every NFL season, the winner of the XFL Championship should play the worst NFL team that season. If the XFL team wins, they will get promoted to the NFL, and the NFL team will be demoted to the XFL. Now that’s something people would watch.

Jessie Lynch:

I’m sorry, why did nobody teach me that credit scores weren’t officially introduced in the US until NINETEEN EIGHTY-NINE???! The “boomers don’t understand what millennials have gone through financially” thing is tired but Y’ALL REALLY were out here chastising younger generations for being financially irresponsible after you bought your houses and cars without credit scores ?! And creditworthiness was previously determined based on character judgement, which is obviously going to skew toward white men?? I don’t want to learn one more thing in my life ever again, I’ve heard enough.

J.R.R. Tolkien:

Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisoned by the enemy, don’t we consider it his duty to escape?….If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we’re partisans of liberty. then it’s our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!
