I'mma sit back and watch.
Given how the year's gone and the last 4 have only been outdoing the last in incredulous scandals, January '21 should start by rounding it off.
Realistically though as a commoner across the Atlantic I can literally do nothing to influence what Trump will do. Good luck with that!

Longest running scandal in Sep7 history.

Yeah, today Edinburgh is cloudless but fuckin' cold.
Going up a hill around the capital means I'll get some pretty stunning views.

I'm doing fieldwork, going around parks and measuring trees.
A bit boring but at least I have an excuse to leave the house.

Your score is 26 out of 36.
Your score is equal or better than 45% of all participants.
Oof. Wish it would at least tell me which ones I did wrong, don't even need the correct answers.
Would be interesting to see what "eye-emotions" I got wrong and see if there was a pattern or just a misunderstanding of the words.

Could be worse.
A majority could select a third party, but due to coalition agreements, both evils join forces and take power.
Fianna Fail and Fianna Gael lost to Sinn Fein in Ireland, but look who's in power now. Can you imagine a Trump/Biden Presidency?
Urgh. Fortunately your two party system means they vehemently hate each other and can't do that, so there's a silver lining.

Sir Sean Connery has died at the age of 90, his family has said.
Sir Sean died peacefully in his sleep, while in the Bahamas, having been "unwell for some time", his son said.
Jason Connery said his father "had many of his family who could be in the Bahamas around him" when he died overnight in Nassau.
He said: "We are all working at understanding this huge event as it only happened so recently, even though my dad has been unwell for some time.
"A sad day for all who knew and loved my dad and a sad loss for all people around the world who enjoyed the wonderful gift he had as an actor."

I feel like the Presidential Elections would've gone just about as smoothly as they are now, if that's a consideration.

Would've had a lot more money by not being furloughed, but wouldn't have had time to apply for uni and wouldn't be in Scotland rn.

To clarify, I didn't feel strongly about many questions and a few that conflicted with how I think at the time verus what I have demonstrably done in a situation.

Edinburgh is a nice change from Cardiff, but since I moved during lockdown I haven't really had a proper chance to experience it as I normally would.
I have a nice flat and there's shops nearby at least.

Preferably off this fucking rock they call a "Kingdom". 15 years is enough, and I'm coming up to that next year after I graduate.
Scotland and Wales are the most bearable of them for the time being, but come post Brexit I want to be living either back in Ireland or mainland Europe doing something with my degree(s) and my girlfriend.

I like to think that everyone who isn't active just got busy with their lives positively.
Or at least, the saner stable ones.
Flee streams (and occasionally pops in), MetaCog went to uni (and America?), Ender protests civil rights, Naru is astrophysic'ing, Death is/was missioning... these are just the ones I remember, but I wonder what a lot of us are doing.
Just some late night thoughts

You can probably find similarities in your answer if you asked "Why did Pearl Harbour happen?"

One case detected in my brother's school.
This is a relatively small school in the middle of nowhere. I can only imagine what city school are going though.
Any predictions when things might go to 'normal'? April 2021? Summer of 2021?
Just long enough for the 'normal' to be total economic collapse, and rioting across Western Europe.

Watched 'The Lives of Others' last night - it's in German so most of you'll need subtitles, but it's a good drama about a Stasi man spying on a playwright and his gf, with him slowly getting involved in their lives.
Had a quick wiki binge afterwards and it turns out the actor who played the Stasi man is a playwright himself who had his own involvement in the fall of the Berlin Wall, so that was interesting.

I feel like such commitments wouldn't be an obstacle, given your dedication to restraint and moderation.

Doing a full-on Fresh Prince of Bel Air binge on Netflix.
Kinda sad about the stories they have about black folk being pulled over for little reason or black history month and the episodes are nearly 30 years old, but that's a criticism of reality rather than an awesome show.
Edited for clarity, kinda made it sound like those issues are the show's problem...

Nah, Jesus covered our tab.
He just didn't know what he was paying for.

Bonobo - The Plug (Quantic Mix)
Think lo-fi lounge music.

So apart from here;
2 Discords frequently enough that I consider myself an actual participant (as opposed to just there for the notifications).
Another offsite (not Sapphire).
Sapphire, mostly to see how it played out (it's festering about as well as we are here, with all the trimmings of soap opera drama).
A Battlefield EU/UK offsite forum that happened to split off from the official place around a year after Bungie did their redecorating (it died sometime in 2016/17).

Yes, yes, and yes.
Soon to quit my job after getting into Uni again to do a Master's, fully funded courtesy of the Welsh gov.
I work(ed) in a cocktail bar so it seems like with the furlough scheme winding down and the chance of a 2nd wave coming up, getting out now while the gettin' is good.

Watched Apollo 11 for the 3rd time this lockdown.
Still fucking amazing. I highly recommend it.
It's on UK Netflix, not sure about other places tho.

Watched Hotel Rwanda last night.

At this rate I'm not sure even 2 terms should be allowed.
The system seems so fucked up that it feels like it's designed to takes ages to do anything productive, but evidently a tweet away from fucking shit up.
(This coming from a country where the next PM is usually someone who's been in a prominent cabinet minister position for years who's been fuckin shit up in the background up until they continue it in the forefront as a PM).

So like, what's your preference
You on the Moon, Mars, Pluto, an exoplanet off Sagitarius A...(totally habitable, be it a total terraform or just a base to live on) and everyone else on Earth, or vice versa?
