My mom says clothes look good on me.
@stuffisthings the EU rule is that if you are an EU citizen living in another EU country (and this is something you can do easily, thanks to freedom-of-movement agreements), you can vote in local elections and for the local member of the European parliament, but you can't vote in the national elections in your place of residence, which seems like a kind of weird distinction, but there it is. EU are under no obligation to let non-EU nationals vote.
More intriguing to me is that, as a relic of the British Empire, if you are a citizen of any member of the Commonwealth of Nations or Ireland and are a permanent resident of the UK, you are allowed to vote in national or local UK elections (but not in EU elections, unless you're a citizen of an EU country. QUIZ: Which two EU countries are also part of the Commonwealth? ANSWER: Cyprus and Malta.) The Brits long ago tightened up their immigration policy so it's not like people from Nigeria or Pakistan can just show up in the UK and be welcomed, but if you jump through the hoops of the immigration process you can vote without taking UK citizenship.
Can we talk about how a bunch of people on Twitter seemed genuinely scandalized that a practicing Catholic believes in the Devil, and in hell? I mean, I don't believe in these things, but I'm well aware that the majority of people in this country pratice religions in which such concepts feature pretty prominently! Is anyone actually surprised by this?
what about the fact that this movie is a LIE because the ISS and Hubble are in TOTALLY DIFFERENT ORBITS??? (I just read that on the internet somewhere and have no idea what "different orbits" means really. Different heights, or directions, or angles or something? IDK)
wait, what about dexter, can we talk about dexter, because what the fuck, dexter
Man, this just reaffirms my opinion about polyamory, namely that it sounds exhausting.
@Rod T WITH MACROS :(
I tried to go to a Godspeed You Black Emperor show in Berlin in 2002. They were playing in the former East German national theater and we didn't buy tickets in advance because we thought "surely a venue of this size will NOT sell out for a show by an inscurtable no-vocal Canadian art-rock band?" We were wrong! In my mind, they spent an hour on stage not playing anything to protest the tyranny performance while thousands of hip Berliners nodded thoughtfully.
has spoken only occasionally about his time as a fresh-faced idealist who opposed foreign wars, missile defense systems and apartheid in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
haha remember back in not so recent history when you could be pooh-pooh'd as a naive, idealistic youngster for being opposed to an actual avowed white supremecist regime?
Can't decide if their studious avoidance of the obvious "clean slate" joke deserves cheers or jeers.
But Diet Coke indisputably tastes better from a soda fountain than it does from a can or bottle
