@NGrossman81 Exactly right. I have never once read a statement that included that and believed it.
@NGrossman81 The “there is no joy” is the most telling thing. It’s like “I don’t disagree with you but,” yes you disagree and yes you feel plenty of joy or at least vindication.
@Queens__speech_ @themaltesemama @Slate 2% of 150 million people is a lot of people!
@prancingponypod Anyway, I don’t know about specific readings per say, but maybe a selection of landscape descriptions, and/or some of the culture of Rivendell which really reminds me of a hostel or national park lodge where strangers gather to rest and trade stories. The Prancing Pony inn too!
@prancingponypod Personally I find a lot of the Tolkien passages (in The Hobbit especially) to be very inspiring to push me out of my comfort zone and see new things. “Adventures are not all pony rides in May-sunshine” is a quote I’ve thought of many times during some adventurous traveling.
@prancingponypod Sure going to an island and relaxing on a beach is one thing. But backpacking through Europe, or trying to find film locations in New Zealand, or going camping in the American west… etc etc sure it’s not the same as dodging trolls and balrogs, but it’s not always relaxing!
@prancingponypod Really really enjoyed your selections on the podcast this week. All I would ask for is more of “the road goes ever on” stuff. One other thing - you guys were talking about how in Tolkien travel is not a vacation, but sometimes in real life it can be an adventure too!
@SpiroAgnewGhost But like... Demented Don was right there...
@TheMossadIL Wait a minute, I just realized something. Is this an elaborate April Fools Day ruse?
@NGrossman81 I keep seeing these articles on my Edge default page (which is for some reason extremely Trump and Russia obsessed) about how "Russian civil war has already begun" or similar headlines from a smorgasbord of outlets, some more legit than others, that specifically reference this.
@prancingponypod @BretDevereaux This was so great and informative, I loved learning all this. Thanks Bret for all your expertise!
@hughjassKS @SeanTrende All good points... BUT! If you end up leaning into a second spot... (I'm aware this guy was not backing in, but it's the same outcome!) youtube.com/watch?v=474okl…
@hughjassKS @SeanTrende I’m generally anti-backing into spaces because it just increases the likelihood of a border incursion. But if you can pull it off and stay centered between the lines, more power to ya!
@SeanTrende That driver 100% backs into spots and takes two at a time
@bpolitics @DemFromCT Arrest him
@MNateShyamalan Is it bad that I read this in the Mario voice
@TheMossadIL Wow, literally the best pro-Israel social media account, one of the best satirical accounts on all Twitter. Guess it's just not fun anymore, seeing what is going on there now.
Wow the Mossad parody account (that is nonetheless always pro Israel) is bailing. Sorry to say, but this is how a lot of people in the pro-Israel world feel these days. It's getting harder and harder every day to defend when the government behaves like a dictatorship. twitter.com/TheMossadIL/st…
@jewlicious Saw video earlier they were giving out chulent too
@GasBuddyGuy Why do seemingly neutral journalists do this do you think?
@GasBuddyGuy It’s very strange for someone - at this moment - to assume a repeat of last year when oil is like 40% lower than the peak and never came within $30 of it. I know it’s not just oil, but also aren’t crack spreads much less severe as well?

@kylegriffin1 Sorry but is this the appeal? Or what we already knew?
@conorsen Do you agree? Or just reporting your interpretation of what he is saying?
@conorsen Wait are you saying he does NOT need to be tactically hawkish now?
@HenMazzig @MIGOP Where does this bullshit even come from? People really think that Shloime the shtetl apple cart salesman was walking around strapped with gats? What planet are these people on?
@EmbryEthan Violent outbreaks will be sad, but will serve to turn more normies against them and elevate the danger from these people in their minds. The violence will also fail, and the result will be in more extremists exposing themselves/getting locked up.
@EmbryEthan I actually disagree - it's the sign of a well-functioning system of government when you can throw a former head of state in prison without the army/police apparatus being compromised. Many countries (including democracies) have done it. Keep these bastards honest!
