  1. Like Vee, I grew up on that era of AMC. He was so charming and I loved him with both Maria and Brooke. The second go around with both couples, especially when Maria returned, wasn't the same but at their height, Edmund and Maria were magic together. I even loved him in the sillier stories like the Eduardo story with Phoebe and Brooke that Ron Carlivati mentioned. I still hate the way he was just killed off like it was nothing and in such a crass and unceremonious way. I'm sad for Eva, their daughter, their AMC cast mates, and anyone who loved him.
  2. I'm sorry but what. I know Europeans have a reputation for this but I assure you that the majority of them bathe on a regular basis. Also, how frequently they bathe most likely has no bearing on this situation.
  3. No. It's summer literally everywhere in the South Hemisphere and that hasn't done anything from stopping it form spreading. African countries are way more prepared for pandemics in general and a lot of them have measures in place to deal with things like this. There's also the fact that the case number will probably go up in certain countries as more people travel and get tested.
  4. Tom Hanks was walking around Sydney all last week and hanging around at the beaches (he was literally like 3 KM from my home sigh) before he went to the Gold Coast, so I'm sure everyone here is about to be in a state of panic.
  5. Thanks Mostly people like Pelosi because she's the only one standing up to Trump, or least she's the only one who makes it onto the news. A lot of people feel like she's the one stopping things (like getting involved with Iran for example) that would end up effecting other countries. But yes, Obama and Clinton are *extremely* well liked, along with Biden mostly. My aunt and grandmother watch RT a lot and I think RT has actually cooled some on Trump lately lol. He's no longer "darling Trump" or "beautiful Trump" but it's still usually positive. Sanders gets a lot of praise on RT too, which adds to my impression that he's a grifter and shady tbh.
  6. So is it over for Sanders? Or does he have a path? Twitter is full of people shouting at each other that it's "not over" for Sanders and that they're taking this all the way to the convention, whatever that means. CNN is basically saying that Biden is going to be the nominee and for Sanders and Warren to give it up so that everyone can unite to take on Trump. Not really sure what the exact answer is here. Also, fwiw, I see a lot of both Trump and Sanders supporters claiming that the rest of the worlds hates Nancy Pelosi, the Clintons, the Obamas, and the Bidens which is ummm, not true lol. I like all of them quite a bit- especially Michelle Obama and Nancy Pelosi- and so do most of the people I know both here in Australia and back in South Africa. The same however can't be said of Trump or Sanders themselves. I don't know anyone who has a favourable opinion of them.
  7. 🤣 But seriously...who is this man's fanbase? Loud kids on Twitter? If I had a vote, I think I'd probably go for Warren, but Joe Biden seems like an honest, decent, good man. Sanders reminds me all the grifter politicians in South Africa that ran in every election when I was a kid who talked a lot but had no means of backing up anything they said. But besides that, Biden is obviously turning out the vote and has the passion and support from everyone he needs to hopefully take down Trump. I don't get the whining from Sanders supporters. I thought the most important thing was beating Trump but I guess for some of them it's not.
  8. I'm still confused about his "large coalition" that I hear about on Twitter and the news. All the Americans living aboard and in the US that I know are for Warren or Biden.
  9. I know it's not really my place to say, but I'm watching this on CNN international and I didn't like Sanders' supporters booing Biden and other Democrats whenever they were mentioned. The woman who I assume is Sanders' wife smiling and almost laughing every time it happened was also a really bad look, at least to me. I know Australian politics are almost never classy either so I don't have much room to talk, but how is anyone suppose to beat Trump when some of these people are behaving like that?
  10. I don't have any real clue on how this all really works in the US, but CNN basically said Biden and the Democrats want Warren and Klobuchar to stay in through Tuesday because they'll block Sanders from winning their home states and they'll keep him from running the table in other places. Also speaking as someone who grew up around "socialism" and is probably more liberal/left than most of the people here, I'll say I do not understand the Sanders thing at all or why he's some sort saint to some of these people. I grew up in places where we had socialised medicine and all those things and I'm definitely to the left, but he just seems like a con artist to me. No offense to the US, but I don't ever see you guys getting all the things he's promising because the US isn't made that way. Anyway, can someone explain to me his loud rabid fanbase?
  11. I'm completely baffled by whatever is that is happening and why this is important at all?
  12. I got to see the first three episodes at a press thing and it's good stuff. I won't spoil anything too much but I was really pleased. I thought they really got going fast and it wasn't bogged down in nostalgia and fan service right from the bat except for two minor things. Patrick Stewart slipped back into the role really easily. Also, the plot is going somewhere I totally wasn't expected and draws on TNG history in a very clever way. FWIW, also, Seven isn't in it till the 4th episode and Riker, Deanna, and aren't in it till at least the 5th or 6th episode, so it definitely has time to breathe and gives Picard and the new crew a chance to shine before the old crew joins in.
  13. Hope you and your family are staying safe and are out of any direct danger. I'm on the beach in Sydney and it's been unbearably hot here the past few weeks. The wind, air quality, and smoke are of course horrendous. How are the conditions where you are?
  14. twitter.com/RohitKachrooITV/status/1212703474422550528 Here's our Prime Minister being his usual caring and compassionate self while our country basically burns to the ground.
  15. Can someone explain the Bernie cult to me? I see his very loud supporters on CNN and twitter and I'm truly baffled as to why he is the one and only for them. Just from what I catch on the news, I think Elizabeth Warren is the most compelling and thoughtful of the candidates, followed by Beto and Harris. Also, in Australian political news, I apologise for the fact that Scott Morrison tried to bring his mate Brian Houston the evangelical cult leader to the White House. Truly horrifying that Hillsong is expanding to other parts of the globe.
