I will have to check my calendar first, so don't take my word for it yet, but I think it is not April 1st.

We can't allow silliness if it's not April 1st. Things were getting a little too chummy around here.
would this

be allowed though? :sneaky:

It wasn't meant to be an April Fool Joke but i wanted to celebrate that it reached 1 billion views.

In other news - The shortest politician in history - 28 seconds.

One thing I have observed is that I am unable to see any horror movies or films or anything related to violence and scary movies. I find that triggers my anxiety and ptsd

Fuck...


Was just watching some compilation of his jokes - as usual - and saw in the comments something about being grateful for Norm and not believing he's gone now.

Knowing his style of comedy, and his fans too, I just thought it was a punchline to an overly drawn-out joke. But then three replies to the comment said the same. Enough for a quick Google at least.

I was shocked. Never knew he had cancer, though he did not look very good in the past few years, and the lack of new material or appearances was probably a big clue as well.

And this comes just days after I finished his semi-autobiography/novel, and after watching tons of his old material all over again. Over the past year or two, he has become a comedian that I really consider the best ever. Someone whose jokes just get funnier every time I watch them. And he only got better with age.

It always hits you too suddenly. I remember when my friend posted on my Facebook that Paul Walker had died, and when I got up in the morning it was the first thing I read (if I remember correctly). Just felt shocked, but at the same time completely empty. Not even in denial, just completely devoid of emotions. My favourite actor, now my favourite comedian. Just out of the blue, bam! How do you react?

I will miss his presence after a while, when I remember he's gone, start missing all the laughter he could've brought if he only had a couple of more years... Just like with Paul, every now and then I go through his old material, mostly interviews, that really show who he was. It will probably be the same with Norm. But I did that while he was alive as well. This time though, with a hint of sadness.

I don't really like to use phrases like "rest in peace" or whatever, so what I'll say is, I hope he hasn't had any regrets, and he'll continue to live on in the hearts of his fans.

Just one of those days when nothing goes well and it makes it seem like you can only rely on yourself to make it through, like no one/nothing is helping, and every little negative thing is making it much worse than it should be (or really is). So instead of relying on positive things/thoughts to get through it, you feel like you have a mountain of negativity to get over, and it's overbearing. And to fix everything, you only have hate and despise as your motivation, and it's very hard using that as a fuel.

It will pass tomorrow or the day after, but there have been a couple of those days already in the past month. Maybe I need it in a way, maybe I deserve it, maybe it's of my own doing. Maybe I'll get out of it better. But I still feel like disappearing somewhere for a while, taking a vacation somewhere remote, like an escape from everything and everyone - my own thoughts included - would be the best thing for me right now.

Don't take this as anything else but venting, thinking out loud. Can't be helped, it is what it is.

heh, the first few words instantly reminded me of this


but seriously. good luck buddy, try to remember that humans, so that includes you. are much stronger and enduring then they initially recognize within themselves. Take a bit off, collect yourself :)

Thanks. It's not the worst or the first time, so I know that things will get better, but I'm just tired of the enduring and want to enjoy and thrive for a bit. But that will come too.

I wonder if his telepromptercrew consists of millenial teenagers who, once every so often, just leaves out small bits and pieces on purposes just to troll the old senile coot. :ROFLMAO:
Teens are now Gen Z :p but dang, Joe Biden's slip up is just awkward lmao

That's what I was thinking, don't these politicians have script writers and teleprompters so they don't forget the names of the people?

The more I think about it, the more I feel what a waste of time Social media or spending time on facebook was for me. I wish I spent that time improving myself and thinking what can I do differently and rather than worrying what my high school friends were up to these days. It just feels like a big scam and zuckerburg raked in a lot of money because of it.
