    Gas Bandit's Political Thread V: The Vampire Likes Bats

    Nefarious methods should be subject to their own scrutiny, I suppose. As for the success of their program, bureaucracies' gonna bureaucracy.

    Gas Bandit's Political Thread V: The Vampire Likes Bats

    Apparently this exclusively affects people who opted in to an energy saving program. *edit* In exchange for a free smart thermostat, no less. It is literally the point of the program of giving out these thermostats.

    Gas Bandit's Political Thread V: The Vampire Likes Bats

    They might care, but they are shrugging and saying, "It's out of our jurisdiction. We can't do anything about it here." I guess I get it, even though it is such a shitty situation to prove the point on. In the UK you can be sued for defamation even if you aren't in the country defaming someone...

    Whine like a baby, now with 500% more drama!

    I've struggled with it for 15 years without really worsening. It is definitely linked to stress for me and it has improved with anti-anxiety medication and, as I said above, trying to manage histamine levels in my body.

    The Disney Thread: For Everything Concerning the House of Mouse

    Bluey is for everyone! I didn't know Dad Baby wasn't on Disney+ since we get Bluey straight from the tap over here. That is extremely lame. It is an excellent episode, like every Bluey.

    A Loki Place for Spoilers

    A lot of what you said applies still in spite of this, but GotG takes place in the Andromeda Galaxy and not the Milky Way.

    Coronavirus Thread

    Meanwhile, here in Australia, a couple leave a weeklong lockdown in Melbourne, drive all the way across New South Wales into Queensland, and then are each fined $4000 for their actions that put everyone at risk of possible COVID infection. I can't imagine that going over at all in the US.

    That's a good point. Gender fluidity will enter the picture another way, then.

    A Loki Place for Spoilers

    re: Loki - as the villain. It definitely makes the most sense. Loki the protagonist is an established loser, cheat, liar, and too ambitious for his own good. He would be ineffective against most people that the TVA couldn't handle. But a villain that is just like him? They definitely could use...
