    Lion King remake is trash

    According to my daughter. She felt Disney sold its soul to Beyonce who had horrible songs and can't act. Childish Gambino sounded unfortunately like Childish Gambino, as if he was trying to be sure the younger generation recognized who he was. James Earl Jones was too old for the role. There was no chemistry between Simba and Nala. They tried too hard to push modern themes: Poomba not wanting to be fat shamed. She said John Oliver, Seth Rogan and whoever played Timon saved the movie.

    Which foods give you gas?

    I was going through some old recipes that I had cut out from magazines and had to throw half of them out. At the time I had cut them out (many years ago) I was able to digest everything. Now, I have to be very careful what I eat or at least the time. I wasn't sure if it was just me.

    What Urban Myth Will Turn Out To Be True Next.

    But what they did was not really the 5 second rule but instead the 24 hour rule. They infected on the floor for 5 seconds but incubated overnight. Once you put food into your mouth there are acids, enzymes and cells that are going to attack the bacteria. I think they should have had someone volunteer to eat the food after 5 seconds.
  9. I will check out the article later but I'd argue that high abortion rates and high HIV rates speak more to being ill prepared for sex. There is something truly lacking in our culture when it comes to talking to our kids about sex and giving them birth control. I've experienced this myself. It's like black parents think just telling them to wait and say no to sex means they will. No one wants to give their children the pill and or condoms. So you have this high rate of sexually transmitted diseases and unplanned pregnancies. It's sad to have such a high rate of abortions but I'd rather have those high numbers than higher numbers of single parents and teenagers having babies.
  10. OMG, really? Lol, it scares me because I don't understand it. Does it mean you like to hunt a lot or that you're ready for the revolution? Like you're preparing for an apocalypse? It makes me feel like you don't like people of color. However, when I had the opportunity to actually interact with some of these guys they were sweet as pie. Just looking at them though they seem fearsome.

    I'm glad you liked it. She may be extra critical as it was one of her favorites as a child.
  13. Thank goodness for it. Having birth control options when you're too young or afraid to go to your parents or not properly insured is a great benefit to the community.

    50 years ago Ted Kennedy left Mary Jo in the car....

    Was that a political event? Sounds like a personal problem that happened before my time. I knew of the story but not the details. I never voted for him nor watched him campaign-before my time.

    Top 20 Acoustic Guitar Intros of all Time

    Free..free fallin'! Okay, I know all the songs so far. Love his playing, I'm so jealous. So far didn't know the Heart and Yes song and the Pink Floyd song. This video is making me sad because music just isn't so good anymore, geez. I mean, where are the songs to make you feel melancholy?

    50 years ago Ted Kennedy left Mary Jo in the car....

    I'm reading an article about it now. Did he not mention that the former secretary was in the car? Was he married or something? Why didn't he mention that there was a passenger trapped in the car?? What in thee heck?? Amazing....he caused the death of a woman and served no time in jail, yet, some girl told her boyfriend to kill himself over the phone and she's in jail for murder.

    So nothing happened to him at all???
  20. My post is in response to wiffle's statement that these issues are firmly in the past: When I lived in Newark, NJ my neighbor was from Mississippi. She was very religious and kind. She tried to tell me stories about her life in Mississippi. She used to tell me that she worked on a plantation and that they were slaves. I was like, "Riiiight." She told me that people lived and died on the plantation and no one knew they existed. She said no one could freely leave and that her family actually had to escape from there. She said she would never return to the south. If she is still living she would be in her 70's about now so she must have left Mississippi in the 60's - 70's. I think there are some rural areas that are pretty scary as I've encountered them while living in Georgia. Sometimes you travel way out from metro Atlanta and all of a sudden everyone is wearing camouflage, looking weathered and not particularly friendly to outsiders. I can say that I've met both very kind and not so kind rednecks. listen from 9 min - 15 min Unconventional living situation indeed...
