Give the DBD a weird movie, book, or song - not weird for weird’s sake, but something people will enjoy that is really different.
Also, give the DBD an unpopular opinion.
A movie that is different is definitely any of the Deadpool movies. Ryan Reynolds can literally make something of nothing and i f'ing love it. Deadpool 2 is my favorite of the bunch and there's a 3rd one that's just been announced.
Unpopular opinion: Santa Clara County kicking out college and professional sports teams was a boneheaded decision that didn't bear much of anything considering the protocols teams go through and the fact that places like San Francisco County, New York City, and LA County (who hasn't had a hospital bed for 1.5+ months) still haven't banned them in the urban setting to me illustrates how much of a knee jerk decision it was. I am biased in the sense that I'm already pissed at them since I'm not on campus at Santa Clara but I guess as you can tell this subject/opinion grinds my gears, not the pandemic as a whole because yes it is something we need to tackle together.
Aww nuts .The tasered-his-nuts-while-stealing-a-Tip-ONeill-painting news is false.
Lawyers of the DBD - is this a good legal defense?

Save the date for an upcoming event with Dan Hicks, Professor of Contemporary Archaeology at the University of Oxford and Curator at the Pitt Rivers Museum, who will present on his recent publication, The Brutish Museums: The Benin Bronzes, Colonial Violence and Cultural Restitution.
"The Benin Bronzes sit at the heart of a heated debate about cultural restitution, repatriation and the decolonization of museums. In The Brutish Museums, Dan Hicks makes a powerful case for the urgent return of such objects, as part of a wider project of addressing the outstanding debt of colonialism." - Pluto Press
Named one of the best art books of 2020, the New York Times concludes, "If you care about museums and the world, read this book." Hicks' presentation will be followed by a panel discussion with representatives from California museums and academic institutions.

Announcement: if it's safe, I will be attending my cousin's wedding in Taiwan at the end of November. If you want to join me in eating all the things (in Taiwan in general, not at my cousin's wedding; I'm not inviting you to my cousin's wedding), then plan for a Taiwan trip in that timeframe.
Wal-Mart getting into wealth management? Oxymoron?
Got the 12hr ban hammer from twitter for my tweet making fun of 5G being implanted into my brain. I was given the option of removing it and being let back on immediately or wait the 12 hrs. I chose the 12hrs
