Edit: I have to go my wife is incredibly pregnant and texting me from the other room. But thank you for all the questions. That was fun!
Hey there! I'm comedian Bill Burr. The first three seasons of my show 'F is for Family' are on Netflix right now, and Season 4 is out on June 12. I play Frank Murphy, a father and a husband of a lower middle class family living in the 1970s. While every season comedically explores family dysfunction, parenthood, the ups and downs of marriage and even nosy neighbors, Season 4 sees Frank's father come back into his life, as well as the impending birth of he and his wife's (Sue Murphy) new baby!
Watch the Season 4 trailer HERE!

President Trump on Monday replaced the Pentagon's acting Inspector General Glenn Fine, who had been selected to chair the panel overseeing the rollout of the $2 trillion coronavirus relief bill passed last month, Politico first reported.
A group of independent federal watchdogs selected Fine to lead the Pandemic Response Accountability Committee, but Fine's removal from his Pentagon job prevents him from being able to serve in that position — since the law only allows sitting inspectors general to fill the role.

The U.S. House of Representatives on Friday passed a $3 trillion Democratic bill aimed at salving the heavy human and economic toll of the coronavirus pandemic that has killed more than 85,000 Americans and shut much of the economy.
The bill, crafted by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her fellow Democrats, passed mostly along party lines in a 208-199 vote.
But Republicans, who control the Senate, have promised it will be "dead on arrival" in their chamber.

... so, I took it to the managers office to hold on to it in case anyone came looking for it. They said no one has ever turned in cash before, everyone usually keeps it for themselves. So they took my number down and said if no one claimed it they would call me to come get it. I was super surprised by that because the thought of pocketing it never crossed my mind. (How terrible that people take things that aren’t theirs.) I also thought that was incredibly nice of the staff because they also could have kept it if no one claimed it. I really wanted the person who lost it to find it (I know that feeling, and it sucks). But it also crossed my mind that it would be nice if no one claimed it because $100 would be ridiculously helpful for me right now.
Best part of the story: about 3 hours later I got a voicemail from the owner of the $100 (the hotel must have given it to them) thanking me for turning it in and a story about their situation and how much of a difference finding the $100 bil... keep reading on reddit ➡
Over the years I’ve had a chance to study diseases like influenza, Ebola, and now COVID-19—including how epidemics start, how to prevent them, and how to respond to them. The Gates Foundation has committed up to $100 million to help with the COVID-19 response around the world, as well as $5 million to support our home state of Washington.
Ask us anything about COVID-19 specifically or epidemics and pandemics more generally.

I (15M) bought a expensive gaming computer last fall. It’s one of my most valued possessions, basically. I paid for it myself by doing small jobs and saving up Christmas and birthday money. I detassled last summer, I helped my uncle with his painting job, and I watched my cousins when they were out of school. Basically, I busted my ass to get this computer.
Anyway, my mom lost her job about a month ago due to corona, and she didn’t have to pay April rent. However, our rent was due at the beginning of May, and I guess she didn’t have enough. My older brother and I went camping last weekend, and when I came back, my computer was gone. My mom played dumb for a while, but she eventually admitted that she’d sold it when I suggested reporting it stolen.
I blew up, and I told her she had no right to sell it. I have other expensive things that I would have happily offered up. For example, I inherited some expensive old suits from my grandpa, but he was a small man, and I’m already too tall... keep reading on reddit ➡
First time ever writing in! Background: I rent a room in a house shared by 4 people. We’re all college students and didn’t know each other prior to renting(we each pay rent to the landlord separately.) I’ve lived here for a little over 2 years now and have definitely become friends with my roommates. Last year, one of them decided to get a cat. We were all fine with it and the landlord didn’t care, so she adopted a sweet little guy from the humane society. I’ve never been a huge cat-person, but sometimes I’d feed/play with him if she wanted to leave for a few days. We all have a friendly relationship, but I wouldn’t say we’re close. Also relevant, I love plants and have quite a collection of beautiful house plants. When she got the cat, I moved them all to my room and make sure to keep my doors closed because some of them are toxic to animals.
On to the story: A few days ago, I went to work-I’m a receptionist at a medical office and am the only one in my house that still physically... keep reading on reddit ➡
