I think I may have tried to watch Supergirl when it first came out over here but found her irritating. I'm not a fan of female leads on the whole but I'll give it another try.
I don't generally like women leads because of the writing, the thing is, most female leads are written like social justice bullcrap. For example, I wanted to learn about Catwoman, or at least what's her genesis. I have some of the comics from the 80's. Most of the comics translated into TV, movies, other media ALWAYS, almost always get written badly, or even injects ideologies. Like Catwoman from the day it was revealed was... a lesbian just for the sake of ratings.

I mean, Catwoman played around with herself in Batman [1989 film], but that made me go like "Whaaaat?"
Good grief that's insane. I recall trying out Flash and hating it instantly because from the very first episode it crossed with Arrow which I hadn't seen yet. And by crossed I mean Oliver popped up and I had zero clue as to who he was and it wasn't explained either. Black Lightning? Vaguely recall trying to like it and not, but I'm willing to try it again. Happy to work on Flash though because I think it will make more sense now that I'm 5 seasons deep into Arrow.
I'm in the same boat about Flash. I even saw the 1991 live action show, and it was GOOD. The new Flash didn't get me excited for more. :(

I even like Flash's costume in 1991. It was awesome.

Don't get the first one that springs up. Let everyone else get it and get the best medical advice.

Some people have died from a COVID19 vaccine, so like I said wait for one that has 99% success rate.

Honestly, accepting someone's money and then vanishing for months and ignoring all attempts to check in on you (despite that the last news your friend heard from you was that your aunt was possibly dying) while bragging on social media about how much fun you're having with your new friends and how you're ignoring all your texts because you "don't want to deal with your family's bs" (despite the fact that your friend is also aware you check in with your family almost daily) is...uh...pretty f***ed up way to treat a several-year-long friendship for no reason.

I'm almost curious what excuse you'll use to justify it.

You shouldn't wish for global warming. When it happens, you'll be surprised by the weather. For example, just a few days ago, there was a strom in my area. THAT storm had thunder and lightning strikes which killed...

- Computer (original price $400+, with upgrades.)
- A few TV's, including a TV we just bought during Black Friday - 65' inch.
- PS4.

Sooo... we have to replace them. Especially my PC.

That's a bit odd for a few reasons. January in my area is usually cold, and switches into hot days, so when a storm comes in, its practically global warming.

They're building up a new political party here.
They explicitly state that:

- they want to build a nation state where relations between citizens are determined by their ethnicity and race

- they want to criminalize "slandering Finland and Finnish people" and ban any "news and media content that could harmfully affect the citizen's opinions"

- they want to ban any other religion than Protestant Christian from being shown in any public space, including that they will ban mosques, minarets etc, and that no religion will be granted exemption from military service

- they want to take all residence permits and granted citizenships from 1990-present into reprocessing

- they want to ban abortion

- they want to ban hormonal birth control from any female who is not married with a man

- they want to offer "freetime activities" for people in all life stages – these activities include military and/or educational objectives, and participating in them is a compulsory civil duty

- and, overall, "Finnish bloodlines are to be preserved and protected from any foreign blood or ethnical damage"

I. Am. Scared. I'm literally shaking when I go through this.

We have similar here. Except the party already exists, but the party has become something else.

In the U.S., we have 2 [ahem; major] political parties. Democrats and Republicans. Democrats loves extreme regulations, almost communistic. Republicans are mostly tax deregulation, and more business friendly.

Right now the house of representatives (a.k.a. congress) is 90% controlled by the Democrats. Now, this is where the scary part comes in: The democratic party is currently 80% Socialist. There are still some moderates, but for the most part, the Democrats are acting in cahoots with China. We have been subverted all the way up to the highest ranking members of congress. Hell, Hunter and Joe Biden made deals with Ukraine, and later China. Just recently, China sent troops to Taiwan to test Joe Biden, who is our current president. He ain't doing ****.

They want to control the country, and the media isn't reporting it, because they know, if they had... Capitol Building? Looks like a sleepy "insurrection."

I've already seen the first signs of turmoil in the first 3 days of Biden presidency. He relaxed the border security that Trump put into place. He re-entered the stupid, costly paris agreement. He is introducing a more cagey Capitol Building.

I'm more worried about what's coming next. Because in California, Socialism is widespread, that they're setting up California to be an independent state, to be compatible with China's idealistic communist takeover. Basically, Gavin Newsom is bending his ass for China.

Gavin plans to buy all foreclosures. Guess why. To sell them all to China's nationalists. This idea is going to spread into other states unless government and people stand up to the CCP.

US news, NOR news and UK news says its declining in covid cases. It sounds like some good news. Still long way to go. 1 year self-set 24-7 curfew. I'm used to being alone home coping but now 1 year without anything at all. It's a test alright. How to cope cope cope. Don't get angry now. Take a deep breath and drink your coffe. Chill and take the challenge. Ugh, I need some fresh air...

It's a far right party with a total goofball or a Bond villian at the head of it?

@Goldsickle
I know what you mean. Me and my twin sister turn 30 this year and it's the first year we can't celebrate together.

I know what you mean, man. I'm also turning 30 next month and won't be able to celebrate it with any of my family.

My nephew turns 20 in a few days and we're basically just going to game together all day and chat over the headset.

I'm happy to say it seems like it's the total goofball.

In Finland, to build a new political party, the party needs to collect support notes from at least 5 000 citizens. This party in question started collecting them already.

The bad news for them is that by law, every political party has to get a written approval for their party from the Ministry of Justice before they can collect support notes. This party hasn't got that approval yet.

So... All the support notes they already got... are invalid.

:ROFL: :ROFL: (y)

No worries. They're getting nowhere with this.

Except that now some HC supporters are furious because "the government is intentionally hindering their goals", even though the law applies to every political party in Finland... Well, I guess it goes pretty much with the famous "My mom works as a secretary and told me you're a criminal, so watch out, you're getting into jail for this, and there's no chance you'd know better than me even though you're actually studying law". So it's nothing to be taken seriously anyway. It's just intimidating and trying to act like they had something to play with... It falls apart before they are able to make any plans about anything.

Pretty much everything the government does these days makes my blood pressure rise.

10 years in jail for not being honest about where you've been on vacation? For reference, sexual offences you commit involving a minor only nets you seven years. :mad:

Unless you are famous, rich, in government or friends with/related to any of the aforementioned groups.

Then you can do whatever you want without penalty, so long as you do a half-hearted apology via social media.

Why do people keep lending me horrible non-fiction books? And by horrible, I don't mean the writing--I mean the events of the authors' lives?

On a completely related note, I hope every sex-trafficking piece of trash gets what's coming to them. Like dying in a fire.

Sounds extreme, I'm sure--until you know the depth of hell they put their victims through.

Relating to my last post in this thread...there's something cathartic in giving up on a person.
