    Cute Zoo Pics Part 7

    Cats and Dominos Cats and Ping Pong Trick Shots I know this was edited together but there is also some cat training and a lot of time invested in this. Also how did this guy get his floor so shiny? I love the cup cam at the end of the Ping Pong video. :lol: ETA: Cats and Bell The black and...

    Let's Talk Movies #36 - 2020 - Yep it is a new decade

    I am looking forward to Ghostbusters: Afterlife. It has to be better than that horrific all female ghostbuster cast.

    Keeping Track of Criminal Cases & SafeSport Suspensions in Skating

    You could probably give people a chance to read the thread but whatever... I am still failing to see how this helps with going after the people who actually have power to change the organizations. Exactly what power does a person still competing in the system have? I would also appreciate it if...

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

    Season 3 of You is out on Netflix. Still creepy and obsessive but married with a baby.

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

    Squid Game is reminding me of a Japanese series I watched. I think it was live action but it also could have been anime. And I think it was on Crunchyroll. People had to play logic games to survive. Does this sound familiar to anyone? I am trying pull out bits and pieces from memory to figure...

    Unpopular Opinions

    How quickly people forget about the Timothy Goebbel. Nice guy but not all that interesting to watch when all he had was quads. I also remember Hanyu getting a lot of crap for chasing jumps his last outing against Chen.

    Netflix “Bad Sport” documentary series (featuring SLC Pairs)

    Sorry, I wasn't paying close enough attention. I stand by my original response too. I think most hard-core fans are going to applaud everyone. I don't know how we get from a few people being catty to saying that comprised the audience as a whole. I really didn't feel the dance was fun or...

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

    I had Squid Games in my list to watch then everyone started talking about how violent it was so I took it out. I started watching it now based on comments here and honestly thought it was going to be a lot worse than it is. It's not all light and fluffy but it's not any worse than a lot of...

    Netflix “Bad Sport” documentary series (featuring SLC Pairs)

    I wouldn't know how long they were fans. I think you are overstating the hostility. I saw a lot of light ovations with confused faces and very little non clapping at all.

    Netflix “Bad Sport” documentary series (featuring SLC Pairs)

    I was there and I wouldn't say that people didn't clap because they had RUS after their names. The only thing I remember thinking about Lobacheva and Averbukh is that they tried to pander to a NA audience but completely failed to grasp the style of the dance and failed miserably at it. It just...

    Tarah Kayne details abuse allegations against sanctioned coach Sappenfield

    At what point did it become acceptable to demand that someone subject to the authority of an abusive organization publicly talk about abuse they might have seen or experienced to news reporters? There are several reasons why people wait to speak until they have left the environment and it's not...

    Tarah Kayne details abuse allegations against sanctioned coach Sappenfield

    Most people are not saying Alexa is definitely a victim and not trying to start gossip. We are trying to say that people should be careful in who they approach and how they approach them just in case because we know there are more. There are 11 more reports. I would rather err on not getting a...

    Tarah Kayne details abuse allegations against sanctioned coach Sappenfield

    I wouldn't say it's only about Alexa. At this point every single female student of Sappenfield is a potential victim. Yes it is creepy that US Figure Skating allowed this situation to exist. I would say that expecting a reporter to leave room for doubt and show some compassion to potential...

    Tarah Kayne details abuse allegations against sanctioned coach Sappenfield

    IMO she can ask every uncomfortable question to the powers that be in US Figure Skating. Just not potential victims. Now that Tarah has come forward with her story we might see more coming to tell theirs. But it has to be their decision.
