Download Newpipe instead of the YouTube app if you're on Android. It's a better YouTube app that will play while locked, stop ads etc.

You can get the latest installer (.apk) from their github and as long as you keep it up to date (it'll notify you of new releases) it works for 99% of the videos I play on my phone.

I wondered if/when this kind of thing would get worked out - just took an administration that gave a drat.

Won't help for a few months, but Merck's own vaccine flamed out, so gently caress it, get them involved! DPA-prioritize getting them the equipment, grease the skids between the companies, and woohoo, more J&J vaccine, by Merck.

That Cuomo video is weird because he doesn't seem to come off as anything other than "celebrity dealing with a 'fan' fawning over him." Dude makes a dad joke about eating while in office and then takes a selfie with someone who clearly wanted to be there. That said, I haven't been following this so sorry if I don't understand this due to lack of further context. It really just seems like a celebrity being nice to a fan but I'm really just comparing him to Trump so I can't tell if I'm just jaded either. His sexual misconduct wiki list was wild. edit: What's some more overt samples of him being an overt sexual deviant? The wedding one definitely isn't good but being presumably drunk publicly at a wedding doesn't seem as malicious as someone privately using their power to influence people to do their bidding behind closed doors.

Anyways, what incentive does Melania have to stay with Donald right now? I'd be getting the gently caress out that relationship ASAP but I guess potentially losing your children and being subject to mob justice is a catch 22.

This woman is the third person to have accused Cuomo of sexual harassment, and they all fit the pattern of Cuomo making inappropriate remarks and touching women much younger than him inappropriately to see how receptive they’d be to his advances. Not “grab em by the pussy” level of overtness, but incredibly hosed up for anyone to do and even more so given Cuomo’s power over at least two of the three’s careers.

He needs to go.

None of it was on the level of preying on 14-year-olds at a mall, but it was still unacceptable.

It was not an attempt to impeach the credibility of the allegations of misconduct against Franken. Hopefully that clears it up.

This is huge and great news. Glad they got Merck on board to help with production.

J&J is also saying that they are working on a "Booster" shot to help out with all the variants that are popping up. At the rate everything just started moving I might actually get my shot early summer instead of me thinking it would be late fall.

It should be noted that preliminary evidence shows the current J&J shot is still effective against variants.

But good on them for already looking at boosters this far ahead.

I wonder if Marcellus had time to follow up to get the pipe hitting guys to come over. Zed had taken a shotgun blast to the groin with zero medical attention and was losing a lot of blood. Was Marcellus' plan to knock him out/restrain him (as he had no clue if there were more weapons stashed in the basement), go upstairs to use the phone to call his buddies, then wait maybe the hour minimum it would take for them to get their blowtorches and drive over? Zed would likely be dead by that point. Plus they're down the street from the car accident where Marcellus shot a bystander in the middle of a major city in front of a crowd. Good odds police are searching the area and someone saw him or Butch enter the pawn shop. Marcellus' best play may have been to forgo the most painful option and just shoot Zed and get out of there.

Don't get your hopes up about him actually going to prison. From the Guardian:

quote:

It is, however, unlikely he will spend a day in jail. His lawyer has announced he intends to appeal, a process that would lead to a new trial, and a one-year prison sentence can be served outside jail under certain conditions, including the wearing of an electronic bracelet or limited home confinement.

Already saw a March 20th with zero reason whatsoever. The movement kind of fell apart without Donnie Dumbass calling out the dates.


Looking like the end result will be a solid meh. Republicans wanted to toss out the whole drat Voting Rights Act, because racism, and that more or less got uniformly laughed at. Some of the other dumb poo poo Republicans pulled are going to fly though, which likely means the poo poo they're doing now goes through too.

Maybe a car person can explain; I don't know how one could operate a vehicle that was that overloaded. If they all weighed 150 pounds each that's 4,050 pounds. Google tells me the capacity for a current Expedition is up to 1,758 pounds.

Those numbers are basically what you can operate at safely. If you don't give a gently caress you can basically do whatever you want until something breaks or you find that you flip after trying to dodge a pothole or your braking distance has now quadrupled and you just ran into a wall.

Or pure horror scenario you cook your brakes going down hills and gravity eventually turns you into paste/barbecue.
