Next week apparently. The same article said the trial is supposed to take six weeks. Six weeks! What crime did humanity commit to deserve six more weeks of this garbage? It started in the U.S. back in the 80s, I believe. It's utterly awful. Really highlights the disgusting power of the lobbyists. Right up there with Eye in the Sky by the Alan Parsons Project. KC and the Sunshine Band https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UBsIGF-KZZw I just watched The Last Picture Show (1971) directed by Peter Bogdanovich which had a great cast, including Cybil Shepard, Cloris Leachman, Ellen Burstyn, Eileen Brennan. Apparently Brando advised him to shoot it in B&W. I really can't imagine it would be nearly as good as it is if it had been made in color. I believe the last movie from the 70s I saw before that was Donkey Skin (1970) directed by Jacques Demy, a French fairy tale explaining, I guess, why little girls don't marry their daddies (because their fairy godmother wants him instead? If I understood the film!) Wonderful performances by Catherine Deneuve and Delphine Seyrig. I misread the question, I thought you asked about whether we hated when teachers got you spit on in class. There was a boy in eighth grade who would spit on you when you walked passed his desk. (Eighth grade seems old for this behavior, but I double-checked, and it was eighth grade.) I did get in a fight with that kid once. I think he stopped spitting after that, at least I don't remember it happening again. Before I got in the fight, I did tell the teacher about it, and from what I recall he did nothing about it. Otherwise a good teacher, but that wasn't a good moment for him. Me and the other kid were suspended for a few days (3 or 5, I don't recall). If this were true, don't you think we'd be arguing about whether Churchill actually dropped his towel in front of Stalin rather than in front of Roosevelt? How are we supposed to know whether you heard something or not? If the stuffed moose has nothing to say, then neither do I. As long as all that loss is SOLELY due to proper touching and not of the improper variety, there will be no issue. Well, I don't know what to tell you. I've spent quite a long time away from these boards myself from time to time because they do get pretty ugly. If I'm driving you away, that's not cool of me. On the other hand, I think you just ought to make a new account and use it rather than post from the deleted account. If you're sticking around. Which I hope you do. Don't think it makes you weak to do so either, but that's up to you. But I've seen way too much nonsense out of Elon Musk to buy that he's doing anything for anyone's good but his own. Love him so much you delete your username within 2 hours of making this post! Good boy, Muskbot! Good Muskbot! Go eat an electric bone, Muskbot! I'd like to revere 'em into the river! No I mean, I was confused as to why you were comparing Videodrome and Screamers. (Which I later realized you weren't.) Den of Thieves (2018), what was it before? Huh, now it's something to do with Greta... wonder why it refreshed oddly before... I was going to say Videodrome, but when I checked to make sure I was thinking of the right film for the other one, I realized I was thinking of Screamers(1995). (A bit puzzled why you were comparing them, to be honest.) I don't know if I've ever seen Scanners! Feeder fetish? So that's like, the opposite of vore? I think you've answered the question yourself. These women see a creepy guy looking at them, so they are pretending to look at their phone. Case closed. No, but they should require it be preceded by a trigger warning for anyone with erectile dysfunction. I don't recall any such thing actually happening, but I do remember there was a little song the kids used to sing (that I got in trouble for teaching another kid) -- no idea if we even knew what the words meant, I can remember just thinking it was a funny song: Sung to an Arabian riff (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arabian_riff): There's a hole in the wall Where the boys can see it all That boy's mother was so upset at me and I didn't understand a bit. Although, today, I do.
