  1. I was asking myself the same, but finally I think they don't care if it's true, as long as it serves their goals and confirms their believes.
  2. This ☝️ is absolutely the best. There were also some with Sherlock, btw
  3. On a lighter note: What seems to be the most memorable thing from the inauguration is the photo of Bernie Sanders. The memes are taking over the world.
  4. Oh, I bet this one is of a Zoom meeting with the boss.
  5. Preach, sister. I'm afraid I will need some new clothes after the whole "home office with direct access to the fridge" period - even if I tend to buy things with "a bit extra" allowance. If you are a "broccoli body type" it's so annoying. I wear garters for years now, otherwise I would fall over my trousers slipping down.
  6. I did watch, kind of while working. It felt… hard to find a word for this - no nonsense, not more than necessary. Was really moved watching Kamala's beaming face. And it felt like an end to a long and annoying cramp. I'm not expecting Biden to be an angel, I know for many people he is only the less of two evils. But I'm okay with this. BTW, it seems I was right so far about the MAGA movement dropping Trump after January 6th. I hope you can see the article, it was behind the paywall so I had to save it elsewhere. https://221cblog.files.wordpress.com/2021/01/e28098a-total-failure-the-proud-boys-now-mock-trump-the-new-york-times.pdf
  7. Jen, you might have a look at our other thread https://www.sherlockforum.com/forum/topic/2543-myers-briggs-personality-types-and-quiz/?tab=comments#comment-37997 and maybe also take the test.
  8. Who is the guy with the black uniform? https://twitter.com/annabotting/status/1350939358464012288?s=20
  9. Everything that happens in Europe is more or less a reaction on what happens in the USA. It is hard to compare the political systems and names, the most of the EU have numerous parties, the bigger ones have a representation in parliaments - and "liberal" means something else here. I don't see a political shift to left, but a very strong shift to right. We have Neo-Nazis walking streets and waving flags, politicians threatened and one of them killed. They might not become more right, but surely more visible and present in the politics, while the "left" presents ideas that are not left at all.
  10. Absolutely. Especially after Trump's rhetoric became "fancy". All the neo-nazi-zombies crawled out of their holes feeling validated at last, happily adapting all possible conspiracy theories, with T as the saviour of our world. Poland's ruling party had it's head so deep in T's a** that they didn't see the light anymore. They seriously wanted to take the troops moved from Germany and build a big, new, beautiful military base called Fort Trump. I'm really curious what the current theocratic government will do now. The whole country is torn between two factions which seem to remind those in the USA, AFAIK. PS: To me it didn't look like a demonstration that went out of control (and as I mentioned, I was watching the whole thing almost in the real time). Why there were hardly policemen at site, even though EVERYBODY knew the mob would appear, wearing guns and looking for trouble. Why the mob was let in? Where was the Nat. Guard - during BLM protests they were called long before anything happened. Why it took so long to send out the orders calling them?
  11. The only hope is that he's disappointed his base by not showing up at the Capitol and (even iv half-heartedly) condemning the violence. Maybe also other of his supporters could jump off, as soon as they realized they could not make money or increase their influence with him any more. Or if they stop fearing his revenge. I've had an impression that as soon as Biden won, the EU stopped to treat anything he did or said as relevant. Maybe he stopped being THAT relevant in the US too. It's interesting times, sigh.
  12. How should they react? Accept the unacceptable? Pence didn't want to invoke 25. Amendment. What else could they do to show their stance? Remember what the subject of Impeachment was in Clinton's case? If they get him impeached, he cannot run for 2024. He would lost his salaries and other costly privileges. As for the majority: I'm not so sure any more. Once Trump got irrelevant, many of the Reps might change their minds to save their faces, like those who "realized" the coup "was too much" for them. Also - it might be the matter of how massively they are threatened by their own electorate and how they react to it.
  13. Yepp. it's faster than the virus. I looked up the original singer, he's a cute and talented kid. And the babyface bass singer has an amazing voice. And here is an earlier and longer version.
  14. Would you elaborate a bit? I agree that both sides are quite aggressive and loud.
  15. Absolutely. Even though I wouldn't call him a leader. More of a puppet, he is so full of himself he must be quite easy to manipulate. But in the end nobody knows and maybe won't ever know.
