    Controversial opinion(?): I didn't think it was brave when Simone Biles or Naomi Osaka pulled out of high profile athletic events. It's understandable, it's disappointing, but it's not brave. I...

    That was just my guess/speculation, it's an artsy type of hobby (even if it's only mostly on the consumer's end of the art) so I can see that skewing left. As opposed to maybe a video game chatboard...

    Eh, tell me a good story using words and pictures and I'm not going to care much how you do it. In movies CGI doesn't register as live-action in my brain, so any scene that involves it (like Black...

    It's a slightly harder lift but you can always do that yourself. Not saying you have to mirror Worstblog and do a daily entry on Crazy/Stupid Democrats, but never hurts to point out specifics. Some...

    Every generation has its annoying kids shows or movies, just as every generation has its annoying boy band or the equivalent. When I was a kid it was New Kids on the Block, but you've had your...

    We've dealt with small outbreaks of similar things before, SARS/MERS/Bird Flu/etc. They pop up, kill a bunch of people, then burn out. Covid 19 was the first worldwide sustained pandemic of my...

    I hope he reconsiders. Not a Cardinals fan, but he's one of the most exciting players to watch.

    On Trump and Russia, while there is a small possibility he's an active asset of Putin it seems doubtful. There's little doubt, however, that Putin/Russia/many other countries and entities would love...

    Hope this means they're keeping and/or expanding the roster flexibility rules they had last year, assuming so. Also means depth is super-important, but that's always been the case.

    I have no idea if he had a relationship with her, I know Fox News implied it might have been a close one (and she is pretty, easy story to sell). But politicians having met or been photographed with...

    I'll admit I was one of those fools who thought, "surely once information is easily accessible and people can learn things at the touch of a button then facts and the truth will win the day, and...

    I'd imagine that's probably something to do with keeping the costs down and making them portable, but when I was delving into manga more regularly I liked the old Viz reprints of Ranma and the like...

    While I'd disagree that it's not diverse in terms of topics/genres, I'd agree that like US superhero comics the vast majority of manga follows a few popular themes and has a lot of tropes that (if...

    Not sure if it counts, but as a kid I loved the old Greek myths and thought Perseus would qualify. More of a D&D character, grab-bag of magical items and a heroic attitude. But he's got the...

    There's also a mental health factor. Fat/sugar/salt is a kind of reward/temporary boost of good feeling, and if you're feeling stressed it can help (or seem to, in the moment). Same of course with...

    On junk food, you have a bunch of factors at play. One, we're hard-wired to crave fat and salt and sugar. And from a historical perspective it's never been easier to acquire, but our appetites are...

    When I saw Will Smith in "Six Degrees of Separation" I'd only known him as TV's "the Fresh Prince" and it shocked the s##t out of me. I'm not an expert, but it seemed like an impressive performance...

    I don't blame actors so much as I do producers and directors. Part of it is if they're shelling out millions to put a Will Smith on the poster they don't want
    "Six Degrees of Separation" Will...

    Best/worst case (depending on your perspective) the judge orders them to pay a fine. Everyone knew they were trying to put a team in LA, and they can't force them to put the team back in St. Louis. ...

    It's like the country itself, a mixed bag. We've gone blue in the last few Presidential cycles and our senators are Democrats, but when you hear about crazy things State legislatures are doing while...

    I believe (and correct me if I'm wrong) he's saying that we won't accept it. Not that it wouldn't work. I used to wonder why myself, why in the strongest/richest/most chest-beatingest awesome...

    It wasn't supposed to be a spy film, it was supposed to be a Disney superhero movie. And since the success of Guardians of the Galaxy they've used the same template for most of their films,...

    I tend to read, whether I agree or not (say I'd probably agree with most of what he's saying than many others, bleeding heart myself) and I do wonder the same thing sometimes about posting on a comic...
