Edit:  So, my grandmother saw a "doctor" today who suggested colloidal silver for her.  When my mom said she had never heard of it, he said "well, it's a more of a homeopathic treatment".  So now my mom is buying colloidal silver off Amazon.  Not sure how to bring up the fact that it's all a bunch of hogwash.

 

Oh god no. :(

This is just, like, my opinion, man.  But I think that a doctor saying "you should try this homeopathic treatment" is roughly analogous to a doctor saying "vaccines are trying to kill you.  You should quit getting them."  In both cases it should be grounds for immediate confiscation of the doctorate and termination from whatever job they have.

So who ever is the crazy madman who came up with merging a slice of life high school anime and a space opera is a wonderful human being... I didnt expect this show to be even half as interesting as the first episode is...

WADA suspects Russia manipulated doping laboratory data

 

I am shocked and dismayed at this sudden and unexpected turn of events! Nobody could have predicted this!

Short documentary about the Sept 11th boat lift -- https://www.youtube....h?v=18lsxFcDrjo


 

There's also a documentary I can't find, maybe it's not online, that was being film by total coincidence on that day in an NYFD station, that I wish I could link to.

 

Recent events involving Trump and the Taliban... made me think these sorts of reminders might be necessary.

"9/11.  Great day.  I want to congratulate everyone on this anniversary of 9/11.  I'm a big fan of 9/11, it was the day I got the tallest building in Manhattan"

 

Edit:  On the subject of out-of-touch rulers who don't give a rat's ass about laws, "Vice President" Pence visited Mackinac Island today.  With a eight car motorcade to provide him protection for his one mile trip from the hotel to his speaking engagement.  For those of you who aren't "in the know", cars have been illegal on Mackinac island since 1898.  Even President Ford used a horse and buggy when visiting the island.  But not Pence.  I guess he's too important to follow the law.

I think that's it.

 

But frankly, I can't watch much of those documentaries still, just too heart-wrenching, and it makes me want to go find an Islamic Fundamentalist or 911 "Truther" and punch them in the throat.

Anyone prescribing or selling that sort of homeopathic garbage should be charged with fraud and stripped of any sort of medicine-related license or certification they might hold.

No. Bodacious Space Pirates. The name sounds stupid as [edited]...  but the first episode was pretty ok.

Oh yeah.  That was a pretty fun show.  I never finished it, but it was decent through what I saw of it.

Finished Lupin Part 4 and Part 5. (The two most recent single-season series.)  Wish there was more.  Overall, really good. :)

I'm currently stuck somewhere near the end of Season 2 of "My Hero Academia"  It's a fun show, but damn if I can find time to watch it.

I want to go back and watch part 1-3, but I need to find out if they were ever dubbed...

Hey, as long as the show the name is describing has space pirates that are appropriately bodacious then it's all good.

This was my thought when first learning of it... they described it accurately.

Ah. That's an anime from quite a few years back. One of the boorus list it as "Miniskirt Pirates"...
