    I've seen several people recommend 'The Beatles - Get Back'. Do you think someone who knows nothing about the Beatles would enjoy it?

    Nathan Chen Fan Thread #2

    It's just odd to see a 22 year-old use such outdated/offensive terminology. Especially one that's been marketed as a genius relentlessly over the past 4 years. Except... listen back to the interview: that wasn't even what the question was about. Chen was the one making that jump immediately...

    Nathan Chen Fan Thread #2

    I mean, saying skating is a "fairly homosexual dominated sport" and talking about "females" is... not a great look. ETA: and that's barely even scratching the surface. This thread is a good summary.

    The Medical Thread: Vaccine Search / Staying Healthy / Treatments Etc

    ClinicalTrials.gov lists 35 studies, for anyone curious. I wish we could see the dates easily; I wonder how many of those were started in the past year and a half. I think my point still stands. https://www.cdc.gov/********/2019-ncov/vaccines/different-vaccines/mrna.html says: They've been...

    The Medical Thread: Vaccine Search / Staying Healthy / Treatments Etc

    Were we not indeed talking about vaccines? As for "it has been used elsewhere for more than a decade", I would be happy to see a source. I've googled, and all I can find is that the mRNA technology has been worked on since the 60s, but scientists hadn't managed to make it work until very...

    The Medical Thread: Vaccine Search / Staying Healthy / Treatments Etc

    Except this is a completely new technology. That's precisely why people are worried. I'm not sure we can rely on that fact with a new type of vaccine...

    Netflix/Prime/Hulu/BritBox Binge Watching: ******** Edition

    Love The Good Wife. Brilliant show. The Good Fight is great as well, and quite educational. I learned a lot from their season 3 animated shorts, about microtargeted ads, NDAs, microdosing... It's more experimental, and obviously, very political.

    The end of Lukashenko (Belarus)?

    Timeline here: https://twitter.com/flightradar24/status/1396558935646220288. The plane stayed in Minsk for 7.5 hours! And someone in the comments wonders if the airline had to replace the crew due to regulations. So maybe the old crew had to remain behind a bit longer?... There seem to be...

    The end of Lukashenko (Belarus)?

    The Ryanair statement is incredibly odd, it almost makes it sound like some of their people were still hostages to the Belarussian government and they were trying not to set off the bomb! They've amended their statement now, actually acknowledging the problem, but remain pretty tight-lipped...

    Tumblr is always a good place to check out fan reactions to something: https://www.tumblr.com/tagged/a-week-away?sort=recent 2 caveats: 1) the page I'm linking to is a lot more readable if you're logged in (it only takes a second to create an account, just use a throwaway email) 2) The userbase...

    Russian Ladies news & discussion

    I think if that was your big scandalous bombshell proving Aliona's a horrible person... Well. That's pretty weak. The way you're delighting in her misery is quite disturbing...

    Russian Ladies news & discussion

    Uh-uh. So you have nothing to back up your claims that "Aleona managed to offend lots of people, at Khrystalniy, individually and one by one" and that she's had attitude problems for years. Thanks for clarifying.

    You keep making these vague claims. Where's the evidence?

    Russian Ladies news & discussion

    She wasn't crying over a missed combo. She was crying about her career possibly ending before it even had the chance to start. "After today, there's no tomorrow" is one of the things she was heard saying in the kiss & cry. She was predicted as the gold winner at 2020 Worlds, that was cancelled...
