Looking to have a healthy discussion on this, let's try to keep it civil. In my opinion, Biden (as much as he worked hard for it and may have deserved it) got lucky. If Pete and Amy did not drop out one day before Super Tuesday and Warren had dropped out while endorsing sanders, Biden would be in trouble and Bernie would have had the lead.
I am happy to see the party unite behind Biden tho. Any opinions, counter points, republican point of view?
The job market is tanking hard, and a huge chunk of us are not going to be able to find work. Even with a graduate degree I keep trying, I keep applying, and there's nothing that fits. Nowhere wants to hire me. I was thinking about giving up on STEM and seeing if I could do bartending or even work the door as a bouncer, but those jobs are gone too. All that's left is to try hustling somehow to get a side-source of income. Idk if I should make a blog but those usually don't pay.
I'm so damn sick of this shit. I don't even have kids, don't want them, and I don't know how people of my generation are supposed to survive with the economy crashing this hard. Those who think it'll be a short downturn are deluding themselves. If the economy reopens and everyone goes back to work, COVID will spread like wildfire and we'll probably have over a million deaths. Already we're on track to hit 100K before it's over. If workers having to temporarily not work can tank the economy so hard, what will mass depopulation do?
There has to be a better way. There has to be a better life than this.
The Witch (2015), written and directed by Robert Eggers, is a horror movie unlike any I've ever seen. It's a historical horror film inspired by diary entries from people who testified during the Salem Witch trials. Set in 17th Century New England, it follows the story of a family tormented by a witch who lives in the forest near them. The costuming is excellent. One of the best features, in my opinion, is that all the dialog is in contemporary English. Whereas many historical films either use modern language or fantasy-influenced approximations of "old-timey-english", all the dialog is consistent with recorded diary entries from the time.
I feel like this movie has to be mandatory watching for anyone interested in history or horror.
