WHO would actually evict Trump from the White House?

What's a gallon of regular gas going for where you live (state or country)?
Amputation


Talk about an arm and a leg!

Somewhat undercut by the fact that the price of gas is actually plunging.

Is it possible to explain "sticky contents" without using computer terminology?


Absolutely. Sticky contents is what doctors and prostitutes deal with.

Unfortunately no one in Turkey took the "I want a kitten" virus seriously.

How would we cope if this pandemic had hit in this way 30 years ago (1990)?

Cause pretty much the only thing you could have done is just drink and hope it goes away.

Catching "The Blob" 1958 W/ Steve McQueen

The whitest movie ever?




Come to think of it, I can't recall any non-Caucasian actors in that film.

Of course, the Blob itself starts out bluish, then becomes red.




Has isolation changed your music consumption?
