what is that supposed to be?

I noticed he had his hand in his pocket the majority of the time while having his knee and all of his weight on the guys neck. If the guy is struggling enough that you determine it's supposedly necessary to immobilize them by putting your knee on them, wouldn't you want the hand on that side of your body free to stabilize yourself when the suspect is jerking around?

He should get the death penalty. Where/when was it that they used to trample people to death with a herd of horses going back and forth over them until they were a pile of unrecognizable shapeless flesh and goo?

See. I told you Bill Cosby was innocent. It was my fault for being white that he raped 60 women. Let him go. And let all the other black rapists out of prison too. Surely that'll correct what's wrong with society.

The Allman Brothers had 2 drummers.

Apparently John Lennon had 2 bassists? :WTF:

And for once, someone had the good sense to make Yoko just sit there and knit.

I think our doom is sealed at this point. After the super-duper dumb as hell "then you ain't black" comment, which honestly outshines any of the dumbest things Trump has ever said, I think his only way forward is panderingly clear. To have a black VP = Stacey Abrams.

And to be entirely honest, I'd prefer to say "President Oprah Winfrey" than "President Stacey Abrams".

But you read all the media stories that seem to paint a picture of Biden being the clear front-runner and a the overwhelming favorite. I think these assholes are telling it like they WISH it was, not how it REALLY IS (much like 4 years ago just prior to the election).

"The Witcher"

I went into this with low expectations, figuring Netflix would mess it up. Wasn't bad, enjoyed it. (And actor Henry Cavill nailed the role.)

Watched that one a week or two after it came out.

I've never played the games. But I figured if it's based on a video game, it'll never be Oscar nominated, so yeah, low expectations. Yeah, not horrible, but I'm also not gonna be upset if there's never a Season 2 either.

Although I'm honestly in that group of people that had a strong, bizarre flu-like cold yielding extra chest congestion in December of last year. I have no idea obviously but if I had to guess, i am already immune.

Yep, me too. Christmas Day at my sisters, she asked me if I had lung cancer... and even before then, I was beginning to think... maybe I do. Because I stayed sick and felt as bad as a green stepped on turd for about 2 and 1/2 months. I've never had flu that long. Usually just a week and then it starts to subside, and I can usually function normally WITH the flu. I was bed ridden and knocked flat on my ass the whole time this year. I had gotten a super duper serious case of poison ivy just prior to it as well. My arms swole up like watermellons and I had to go the hospital. They put me on antibiotics and prednisone. And right after I stopped taking the prednisone and had about 5 days left on antibiotics, I started getting the flu or whatever it was.

I think it probably WAS just the flu, it was just a seriously strong strain of it this year.

Maybe this is the beginning of a trend that will become normal. Maybe we've kicked diseases asses for so long, natures finally catching up with our efforts and viruses are getting stronger.

They asked me why I brought 17 jars of vaseline to the Beef Jerky competition.

My sister brought me and my old lady a couple of these stretchy foam almost spandex-like material masks because we couldn't find any. I wore it to Walmart the other day, which was literally the first time I've left the house since March 13th, my old lady has done ALL the grocery shopping by herself since then. I have a big totally unkempt mountain man beard, which made it really difficult to wear the damned mask. It kept sliding up my face and covering my eyes, I kept having to tug at it to keep it down over my face. Which just puts any germs I may have inadvertently touched right on my mask for me breathe it into my lungs. And I was HIGHLY aware of what my hands were doing. I didn't touch SHIT unless I absolutely had to. I was also hyper-aware of whatever everyone ELSE'S hands were doing too. Prior to going to walmart, I stopped by the local post office to mail out bills, and watched some guy grab the door handle and immediately touch his face as soon as he walked in. ::)

And not to be racist (which usually means something racist is coming, but I don't give a fuck, it's an honest observation of what I truthfully saw with my wittle bitty eyeballs.), but the majority of white people I saw shopping in Walmart were wearing masks. A select few were not. They appeared to be the poor trailer park dwelling, meth smoking, and/or faith-healing pentacostal types. You know... MORONS. The majority of black people I saw shopping in Walmart were NOT wearing masks, and only one party of black people WERE wearing masks... and I think it was actually a store employee, so they don't even count. So if we're gonna mention that coronavirus effects the black community at "a disproportionate rate"... (which almost insinuates there's some kind of prejudice going on there, doesn't it?) ...then maybe there's a good fucking reason why, like they aren't following the fucking recommendations as much as other people are.

Yeah, my ma is into Outlander, which is why I've refused to try it.

She also thought Twilight was great.  ::) And unfortunately, I did subject myself to the 1st Twilight movie when I watched it with my old lady years ago. I refused to see any of the sequels, not for all the blowjobs from all the 17 year old prostitutes in all of Amsterdam. Nuh-uh.

My ma mentions Outlander all the time. From what little I know of it, it sounds like a shitty time traveling romance kinda thing and a ripoff of Somewhere in Time.

A lot of folks seem to like Altered Carbon on Netflix. I sorta liked the 1st season after I watched it once. But when they came out with season 2 a while back, I rewatched season 1 again to stay fresh with everything, and the 2nd time around... it was kinda shitty. And season 2 was worse.

What I would recommend though is any of the Bill Burr standup comedy specials on Netflix. He's pretty funny, and quite non-PC, which is nice. He also has an animated series on there too called F is for Family, which isn't too bad.

...while quarantined. (I didn't include that last part in the title in order to make the thread still relevant IF this coronavirus shit ever ends.)

Think I mentioned it somewhere else, but I didn't go into detail about the show.

Comedy Bang Bang,
...currently on Netflix, but leaving on June 2nd according to the Netflix post as the episodes begin.

It's a scripted and probably a little improv-ad-libbed talk show parody kind of show, featured oddball musician/comedian Reggie Watts as the one-man band leader up until midway through season 4 when he left to join the James Corden show or whatever his name is (I don't watch it). For the remainder of season 4, some dude named Kid Cudi took Reggie's place. And then for all of season 5 (the last season), Weird Al Yankovic joins as the bandleader/co-host. The main host is Scott Aukerman. I'd never heard of him before this, but he's pretty funny.

I'd seen it advertised a few places for many years, but always figured that since it was on IFC along with that UNFUNNY-AS-FUCK Portlandia show that it would be equally as lame. But I literally ran the fuck out of shit to watch on Netflix. They had NOTHING appealing. And on a whim, I added it to my list and it sat there for many months until I had seen everything else on my list, so I reluctantly began watching it.

It's kinda slow to get acclimated to it at first. It takes a few episodes. But by midway into season 1, I was hooked. It's not "wall to wall" funny. It's got some odd dork humor to it. But at least once or twice every episode it'll have you falling off the sofa laughing.

Unfortunately, it'll be leaving Netflix soon. So watch it while you can if you're gonna. Dunno if IFC has a free streaming thing you can use if you already get the channel, but it might be there also. Definitely worth watching. Definitely something different.

My favorite recurring character from the show is the little orphan boy Fourvel (a parody of Fievel from the old American Tail cartoon) who always threatens everyone with knives. :D The writing on the show is actually GOOD QUALITY stuff. It really surprised me. It's got some WIT to it. It's not just a bunch of dick and fart jokes. It's WAY better than most of the shit that's been on Comedy Central in the last 10 years.

I've spent plenty of time studying that case and STILL think picking either side is utterly moronic.

Nah, it's pretty linear and simple. Ask anyone who thinks so.
