historical infamy is not the same thing. hitler didn't go the distance. elizabeth was there through the entire 20th century for britain. a lot of change.

The internet has ensured that I was aware of the passing of Robbie Coltrane. I remember him first from James Bond, and from old consoles trying and failing to capture his likeness.

He seemed completely fine with the idea in an interview, a role he enjoyed, and more power to the man. Ambivalence is the worst I remember from involved actors' commentary about their roles. Even Kenneth Branagh, with a number of more serious titles under his belt, said he had fun during his time in one of the movies.

I'd think you'd be open to the notion, Dilbert, rather than expressing dismay that fewer people will remember Coltrane from something like the 80s Henry V than Harry Potter. Would you feel the same if he were in some Marvel vomit?

the UK has a good and healthy tradition of serious, well-trained thesps taking on light or comical turns for fun.

branagh has been in some absolute rotters. more relevantly, from the 'HP universe', alan rickman was a serious actor who took on plenty of campy roles for children.

Imagine being remembered as 'the Harry Potter actor'.
why would this be a slight or insult in your books, though, when children's movie franchises are just as valid as any boring dramatic claptrap?

I enjoyed rickman's role in galaxy quest where it looked like his actor-character was going through the worst self-torture just to spit out those corny star trek lines.

strange and developing story. guy clearly is senile. but why sit a demented person who is a public liability next to the dude who is trying to crown himself emperor? it’s a foreseeable event that he’ll act up. this is a public humiliation in some form or other. apparently HJ’s faction of the CCP need to be brought to heel.

Obviously its a choreographed theatrical warning, if Emperor Xinping can have someone who was 'the paramount leader of China from 2002 to 2012' picked up and dragged off to a back room in full view of the whole of China then he can do it to anyone.

It would have been a pretty interesting news cycle if the home intruder smoked Nancy Pelosi's husband. I am glad they didn't but it would have made good tv.

They say they're investigating motive, but Nancy Pelosi is a frequent recipient of death threats. One guy only got 18 months (article dated Apr 2022) after leaving a message threatening to saw her head off. Conservative leaders and pundits dangle her name, and AOC's, and a number of other Democratic female politicians above the frothing, enraged masses like so many strips of bacon.

The Department of Homeland Security said in June that the U.S. is in a “heightened threat environment” that was expected to grow “more dynamic” in the coming months.
That's one way to put it.

I live in the blue part of my state but I'm glad we have vote by mail and I don't have to worry about whether or not self-proclaimed poll police will be glaring at me when I pass over all the Republicans on the ballot.

Can we start a thread to raise money to get you two to a love hotel in Thailand?

Mac could write a screenplay about it. Who gets to be played by Tom Hanks though?

if dilbert had any world knowledge, and realised that south korea wasn't in south-east asia, he'd know that NK have in the recent past killed people residing on SK'ean islands using missiles. highly tragic incidents, ackshually.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bombardment_of_Yeonpyeong

every death is a tragedy and here's this guy poking fun at koreans dying in NK attacks. and yet still to express any sympathy for victims of this last tragedy.

racist !

Tons of people (who dilbert despises) die prematurely in the developing world, while he makes fun of them (and thinks they should hurry up and die more). It's apparently alright for him to construct some bizarre mythos about how someone doesn't care about covid victims, in spite of their due diligence with preventative measures. At the same time, he casts doubt over vaccine efficacy, "they keep coming up with new boosters, the whole thing is a sham," language over the web that reduces confidence in vaccines and leads to more deaths.

Jay wasn't this mental.

I can't tell if he's genuinely infuriated about something, had a bad week and is decompressing, or just trolling for lolz.

Did he ever fly to that business thing in Southeast Asia? If so, it's a pity millions of people are apparently suffering because of his Aussie germs. Was that trip something that could have been done with a conference call?

Really trying to do everything by email at this point, and its actually going pretty well - one big pat on the back so far.
A trip to SE Asia after Christmas might be unavoidable, but if I'm super lucky the guy whose parents live out there might be happy to pick up that task.
If not maybe I can take an afternoon off and a quick road trip and kick uziq's ass.
