For some reason my native misanthropy is off the charts today. Normally my dial sits around 6-7, mildly irritated and amused but tolerant of how boneheaded people are.

But today it’s turned up to eleven, enraged by perfectly ordinary and reasonable things people do. When someone posted on the local listserv looking for help mowing the lawn, I thought “what the hell is wrong with these people?” Which is an utterly preposterous reaction to have, and raises the question “what the hell is wrong with me today?”

I think today is a good day to hide in a cave and stay far away from social media and the news. I’m at risk of major asshole status today.

Oh, we have the same best friend? Dude's one of the smartest people I know, but damn if he doesn’t get stuck in his ways and refuses to budge even if it’s logical.

I’ve spent an unhealthy amount of time trying to figure out who I think Timothee Chalamutant and Denzel washington’s son should plan in the MCU lol…

John David Washington could play Dr. Voodoo ..

OR

since he's a former NFL player, he could take on the long awaited role of SUPER PRO!

I would love that casting but I bet they’re gonna go with someone with some history either to New Orleans or the Caribbean.

Washington is such a great actor that he has to be cast in a role that has weight and prominence.

Timothee Chalumet should play Chamber, except then you’d never see his pretty face.

Only if you’re doing a GenX film centered on Chamber…

Timothee is such a good actor, that if he’s in a superhero film, I would want him to be either the star or a main part of the ensemble.

He’s too young to play Reed, not juvenile enough to play Johnny or New York enough to play Ben…we already got most of the cast of the Young Avengers picked out…wait maybe an adult Wiccan??????? Or Hulkling????

Dye his hair blonde and he would be a great Cypher. An understated character but actually seriously powerful in the right environment.

Timothee Chalumet can play Nova, or maybe Speedball

You lot....is the continent Australia, Australasia or Oceana?

I can’t seem to find agreement. Different sources cite different ones (the Olympics just said Oceana which made me think of this I was wondering the other day).

It should be remembered that Joe Biden has a diagnosable stutter. It is somewhat unfair to attribute his speaking problems to mental decline. He has had the speech disorder since childhood.

Hum... None of the above. I might call it Oceania ;)

Seriously though, this is one of those things that depends from country to country. In some countries the continent is called Oceania, in others it goes by Australia. I never heard it called Australasia though. Only seen that used for the name of a region.

I'm guessing the Olympics use Oceania because the UN likes to use that name as well.

Unfortunately this is one of those things that will always raise some eyebrows when it happens and some will use to attack him. And to be fair, stuttering and some cognitive decline can look similar with only a quick glance.

A similar thing used to happen all the time with the EU's president Juncker. The British press in particular loves to imply he is always drunk and the nickname "Druncker" has become popular. In truth, the reason he isn't the most stable on his feet isn't a mistery. The man was in a major car accident when he was younger that placed him in a coma. He was subsequently confined to a wheelchair for months. He continues to have a lot of back problems.

By definition a continent is a large land mass, so Australia is technically the continent. But for some purposes of grouping people want to assign every country on Earth to a continent (like for regional qualifying of sports). So Oceania is what they come up with to include all the far-flung Pacific islands with Australia.

It wasn't so much the pauses but the complete nonsense he was coming out with. Like that if you get vaccines you'll "be okay" - vaccines are very effective at preventing serious illness but it's not a 100% guarantee. This sort of thing is terribly misleading.
And then all the stuff about aliens and what not.

Yeah, but in all fairness, Jean-Claude Juncker IS a total pisshead.

The US is the goofy friend who keeps bumbling into things but always resolves to keep trying his best.

Germany is the meathead with a heart of gold.

US starts off very low ranked but about the halfway point powers up enough to be like Kuwabara (sp). He isn’t the second strongest protagonists but not near the bottom.

Germany starts off as a bad guy but we find out their backstory in flashbacks and after their defeat, they join the good guys and reform.
