  1. History.com on Ellis Island immigration 98% were let through, and 80% within a few hours. Some people took a bit longer, if their background had to be checked more stringently. We needed the workers and tax revenue, as we do now. All we collect from undocumented immigrants now is sales tax and sometimes social security. I certainly think we could learn from the past, when immigration was heavy, and we were looking to bring those tired and huddled masses to our shores.
  2. I now have the proportional strength, speed, and agility of a Covid.
  3. 100%. How in the world are people still supporting insurrection? It blows my mind, too.
  4. Far too many people can’t look past their political beliefs to gain true, honest perspective. It’s refreshing to read comments like yours. Thank you.
  5. That this is used unironically in a democratic nation is pretty remarkable.
  6. Great question. Whedon basically discarded everything that would make this movie good, or at least less confusing. I’d start firing execs that gave a green light to the changes, too, because they clearly are not understanding or seeing the source material properly. I would change up the entire team that was put on DC.
  7. It was a completely different movie. Really disliked the first one, really liked this one. There was actual backstory, and stuff was making sense. Sense!!! The scene when Diana was explaining the mother boxes and they actually cut back and forth, or Cyborg’s explanation scenes, both tied those stories into the main arc visually. For real storytelling. I think they finally watched a Marvel movie and took notes. Huzzah!
  8. They didn’t even interview everyone at the party. At least one of them has said they were never contacted by the FBI. I’m sure that will come out in this investigation, and I’m really curious to find out why they weren’t contacted. Did the FBI interview anyone directly involved?
  9. There are Master Baiters afoot!!!!! Stay cold, my friends!
  10. It seems the number is about right. I found this: ”This study pulled the information for 477,500 people across the UK Biobank and 23andMe who had taken a survey about various life behaviors, including whether they had engaged in a sexual experience with a person of the same sex at any point in their life. About 26,800 individuals — or 5 percent of the subjects — fit this description, which is similar to the percentage reported across society more generally. All of the subjects consented to this research, including those pulled from 23andMe's archives.” NPR link to (solid, imo) study
  11. Sorry, I don’t feel you were dunking. I’d noticed it ramping up, so mentioned it, but maybe I’m not being fair. Your point is fair. Name calling doesn’t help.
  12. They found it to be 8-25%, from what they’d uncovered, and suspect more is still undiscovered, as well as mentioning other pathways to homosexuality based on genetics that aren’t yet understood. The quotes I lifted from Nature, and the larger article itself, give a bit more detail on the 2019 study. And the points by the posters I mentioned, and those on a similar tangent, further expose the subtleties of the discussion. This could be a pretty interesting discussion, if the “dunking” stops.
  13. The point being made is much more subtle than that. I would sign on with what IK, Maurile, FGIALC and others are saying.
  14. To add a bit more perspective, I found this from Nature: ”Ganna and his colleagues also used the analysis to estimate that up to 25% of sexual behaviour can be explained by genetics, with the rest influenced by environmental and cultural factors — a figure similar to the findings of smaller studies. “This is a solid study,” says Melinda Mills, a sociologist at the University of Oxford, UK, who studies the genetic basis of reproductive behaviours. But she cautions that the results may not be representative of the overall population — a limitation that the study authors acknowledg
  15. Oh, good, they have their golden calf.
  16. The Nexus of All Realities I will drop this in here. I’d also mention that if I were trying to recreate the dimensional tear that attracted the Beyonder—and quietly set in motion Secret Wars—but didn’t want to introduce the Molecule Man, this Wandavision arc is exactly how I’d accomplish that trick. Could be nothing, but my comic nerd Spidey sense is tingling.
  17. PR is a territory, so isn’t the process that we arrange another vote, if they agree to one? Do they propose the votes in a bill?
  18. If DC was 95% conservative, Mitch would have already made it a state.
  19. Yep! Good point. We really dodged the bullet there, excuse the pun. Luckily, the troops kept the trumpist insurrectionists from trying again, or attempting something even worse. And we were also kind of lucky that trump tried to rule through EO, too, even though it didn’t feel that way at the time. Half that stack of 30 was just rescinding some of those terrible EO from the last admin, and the other half are getting the COVID response closer to where it needs to be.
  20. You seem really spun up about this, Insein. I disagree with your characterizations, and stand by my original point that you aren’t being honest with yourself. I can’t imagine this conversation doing anything but detailing the thread, so I am going to duck out. Let’s talk Marvel in another thread, or something like that, and let this go? You’re a good poster, and I’ve always found you to be reasonable. Just wanted to add that.
  21. Fair enough, I figured you were a trump supporter from your recent posts. My bad, and what I get for assuming. As for B), I don’t think you’re being honest with yourself about this situation.
  22. I understand you’re upset that trump lost, but is this really something you don’t get? You think we should leave our capitols unprotected after the insurrection in DC, and the open threats and planning by nationalists and militia types?
