It isn't a new story, and it isn't surprising. The people are dying from COVID, it is just that the other health conditions make them more susceptible to die from COVID. They've said that from the beginning. They have, for months, been saying that the high risk groups for COVID are the elderly and those with underlying health conditions. That doesn't mean they aren't dying from COVID.

You knew something like this was coming, didn't you? Meanwhile, how many people are homeless near you?

The people who keep pushing for all the information about Britney to be publicly divulged are going to get her badly humiliated in public. This woman, like Kanye West, has bipolar disorder, which is a severely debilitating disease. But those people won't take responsibility for doing that to her or apologize for it.

I used to outright despise her because of her god-awful pop music. Now, knowing how fucked-up her father is and her musical talents vastly improving over the years, I can actually appreciate her music and my dislike of her has turned to pity.

All the lonely old widows out there who have been skipping meals for years to send money to Jerry Falwell Jr. need to skip MORE meals and send him MORE money, because he's in need.

This is a drunk driver killed in a drunk driving incident. This is how his family chose to bury him.

Just imagine, he could have told all his friends he sold a car to the real-life Vin Diesel!

My dad and I were watching YouTube videos from TwoSetViolin, guys were very talented and met some incredibly talented players themselves.

But then we watched a video where they totally destroyed another YouTuber named Davies504, who had posted a video claiming bass guitar shit all over violins. The two channels did back-and-forth challenges to play this and that, but then TSV just destroys Davies504 when he plays this very difficult violin piece because he very clearly is faking it (his grip on the violin's bow was like a claw, his thumb was pressing down on the wrong strings, etc).

It was truly shocking when Davies504 took a violin and used the scroll (topmost part) to play bass guitar and produced an almost-coherent song.

Seriously, I could believe that Davies504 was doing things as a straight-faced satire or something, pretending to be pretentious and holier-than-thou while overdoing the playing for comedic effect, but the guy was uploading videos of himself being an easily-detectable fraud. You have to be truly stupid to think you can get away with claiming mastery over something difficult "with no practice or I would have played it flawlessly."

Dude's just a music-themed version of those fake martial arts grandmasters who get destroyed by MMA fighters.

I don't feel sorry for this guy. Who would? Why is this even a story?

Yeah, I don't get how somebody can honestly think they can make themselves look like this and still expect it not to have any effect on their employment prospects. If somebody looks this offputting because of some kind of genetic defect or accident, then by all means I think that employers should make accommodations and back them up when/if people react badly. But this was his choice. I certainly support his right to get as tattooed as he wants, but I don't think he can reasonably expect that taking it to this extreme should have no repercussions.

That seriously could be confusing/scary to a kindergartener.

It scares me. Not only should he have been fired, but so should have the person who put him in charge of a group of children. And the person who wrote this sob story about it.

Maybe this belongs in Qward, but I'm putting it out here.

The debate I watched last night made me feel deeply embarrassed for my country. It was a Three Stooges pie fight. Trump was Moe, Biden was Larry and Chris Wallace was Shemp. Curly wasn't there, which was too bad, because at least he'd have furnished some laughs.

This is the logical outcome of what the television networks have long been pushing for. They love these degrading spectacles because they get good ratings. But go back and watch the Kennedy-Nixon debates, which are posted online, and mourn over how far we've declined since then.

I'm not clear how to make them more like the Kennedy-Nixon debates if the participants aren't willing to stick to the established format, though. I found myself wondering if perhaps they need to have the candidates in separate rooms and just shut off the mic for whoever isn't supposed to be speaking. Trump, particularly, seems to feel like he can just comment whenever he feels like it (though certainly he wasn't the only one to speak outside his given time). It was embarrassing to see him basically try to shout down the moderator. But I'm betting many of his supporters watched and felt like Trump was being mistreated because he wasn't just allowed to speak whenever and for however long he wanted.

I only saw it for like two minutes (in passing as someone else was watching it) because I knew I couldn't take it, but it's interesting that most of the recap today is just about what a mess it was not about who won.

It almost seems meaningless to try to decide who "won", as there was very little serious discussion of any issues. After this, I'm not inclined to watch any of the other Presidential debates. I'll just read about them afterward, I guess, and then more out of morbid curiosity about how many false, unsubstantiated and/or misleading statements of fact get made. I have a bit more hope that the Vice Presidential debate will at least be less chaotic, but I'm not sure I'll want to watch it anyway.

Are you saying you thought Trump did really well in the debate (a view I cannot fathom), or are you acknowledging that he was out of control, ignoring the debate format to just try to talk over everybody else?

Honestly at first i thought it was ok because he hit on some very good points but then trump got very child like throwing a tantrum it was like watching 2 old men having a senior moment. This didnt feel like a debate at all. Im looking forward to pence vs harris at least there we will get a legitimate debate. I wasnt always a republican i switched after Minnesota went up in flames. I did it for me because i realized i cant change peoples minds and i just cant back biden he dosent click with me. I dont see him as dominant or intimidating when he needs to be
