Re: Politics and other ailments of the real world
Huh. Robert Mueller just release his report.

Got to say I'm pretty disappointed with his conclusions. I would rather it had never been released and the orange menace had it hanging over his head the whole time.

I was really hoping he would go out of the White House and straight into prison. That was probably too much to hope for, although from what I have heard he's done plenty of illegal things.

It would be pointless to say once more that I'm sick of him and all the populist leaders like him. No doubt we have another six years of this moron to put up with.

I sympathize greatly. But consider - the report is merely the facts. What to do with the facts, in this case, was never up to Mueller. 300+ pages of facts, evidence, and testimony. He's referred a vast amount of info to authorities who can level charges against the president, and likely will. Tampering with the national election is an illusion - it's tampering with multiple state elections (the ones the President cannot pardon). I believe Mueller has laid the ax at Congress's feet - the only ones who can impeach anyway. So once again democracy hinges upon the real power - the voter. Call your representatives. Speak out. Support candidates who listen. Make it your key issue and tell others to do the same. It seems like it's just noise, but noise matters. Silence is acceptance.

Re: What are you currently reading? I was like page 100 something through Last Argument of KIngs when my curiosity got the better of me and I decided to just flipped through to the end of the book. For a while now, I had the feeling that the ending wasn't going to be good, and boy how I was right. Thus end my journey through one of the most disappointing series I've ever read, which made me wonder why did I even bothered to slog through book 1 in the first place. With authors that are determined to shit at everyone of their character's life there are no happy ways out, I guess.

Re: The King's Paws (with one holding a bottle of Peri Peri sauce.) Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy.

I have good reason to be nostalgically excited.  :)

My mother baked a LOT when I was a kid. One of her staples was a brown cookie... thing... who's name I'll translate as "cocoa lengths", and it was a favourite of mine. Somehow since leaving home circa twenty years ago I've never had one. I recently remembered them and asked mom to dig up the recipe. She sent it to me earlier today, and tomorrow afternoon I'm going to have a crack at baking some.

I'm looking forward to this...

Re: Politics and other ailments of the real world It's kinda masochist, isn't it? You know that reading about them will make you mad and angry and all those bad things, but you can't stay away...
(also because you never know if in the middle of it all something will affect you directly, specifically)

On a plus, I got the notice I'm getting my £65 application fee back ::)

Re: Black Leopard Red Wolf
Your description sounds much more appealing to me than the African GoT one, actually. I still haven't picked it up, will probably do so now after I finish my current read.

The writing is incredible. Marlon James does short sentences for action brilliantly effectively.

Re: Only Mostly Dead Poets Society Behind You Your Family Remains

There’s darkness in your sky.
Your broken wings can’t fly.
The light you followed for so long won’t shine.

And now you stand alone.
And only you can know,
How far you’ve flown and now you can’t fly home.

And I know your faithful heart’s about to break,
And there’s only so much more that you can take.
But when the light goes out,
And your hopes all fade,
Behind you your family remains.

Rivals in the fight, Siblings in the light,
We tried we learned we grew and it’s alright.
We did what we could do.
We pushed we learned we grew.
We fought we won we lost we pushed on through.

So when you’ve passed the point and know there’s no return,
When the light that lit the way no longer burns,
When the light goes out,
And your hopes all fade,
Behind you your family remains.

The love we hold for you,
Brings no light to what you must do,
But when the light goes out,
And your hopes all fade,
Behind you your family remains.
