Re: Star Trek Lower Decks Thread

My favorite aspect of the show was how they never took themselves too seriously all the time. It was more of a light-hearted view of Trek that we don't see all that often. I mean there's a reason why the #1 favorite TOS episode of all time is Trouble with Tribbles.

Re: WB to give all 2021 movies a simultaneous streaming release

We get free HBO Max as part of our cell phone service through AT&T, but we will need to subscribe to 3 other streaming services to watch all the other shows we want. Nuts to that.

Re: SUPERTHREAD: 2020 United States Elections

There's no legal prohibition for a convicted felon to run for president, but it would be a very interesting thing to see having a presidential candidate trying to run a campaign from a jail cell. Then what if he's elected? It's still unclear if a president could pardon themselves...so running a 4 ye...

Depends on the state. I think Georgia is mandatory if it's under half a percentage point or something like that.

I'll have to jump in on the "I kinda like it" crowd. I have to say that I smiled at her facial expressions, which fits her personality exactly. A sarcastic smart-ass who doesn't tolerate bullshit and can be a real badass when she needs to be.

Re: Android's under-5s apps have 'unfair and deceptive' ads

So the temptation to just park your kids in front of a tablet or a phone to distract them and keep them in one place can be very strong, and I have to admit I'm not innocent of doing this in extremity. But it's definitely not something I make a practice of, to say the least. I would have to second ...

That's a cool kid. Suggestion for you. Soon, if you haven't already, you're going to be up late at night holding the kid, who's screaming for no apparent reason, soothing him back to sleep.
