I tried playing there. It's so weird.
I've always thought Lewis was one of the greatest drivers of the generation, but there was something about him that always rubbed me wrong way. My girlfriend was asking me about it a few years back, and the only explanation I could give was that "Everything he says feels so rehearsed. So fake. It's like he's saying what he thinks is the right thing to say, instead of saying what he really thinks or feels."
And then after watching Russel smack Bottas upside the head after Vallteri threw him the finger, it hit me : Lewis couldn't do that.
When I thought back to how Lewis' racing career, I realized that he absolutely *had* to be on his best behavior 100% of the time. I knew a bunch of people like that growing up in the states. Their parents would teach them to be super calm headed, never raise their voice or their firsts, never curse, and always dress well and hold you head up high. Their parents would say something like "There are shitty people in the world, and they'll use any ammunition they can find to throw at you. So you better not give them any. "
So in the end yeah, everything Lewis says is probably rehearsed and fake. But it's not because he's being manipulative or shitty. It's because he legitimately feels like he has to be on a constant vigilant guard against people who will use any misbehavior against him.
I mean honestly, can you imagine how shitty twitter would have been if Lewis was the one hitting Bottas upside the head in one of his first few seasons? We would see nothing but racial nonsense. And quite frankly, that's insane.
It must be hard being Lewis. I can't imagine how frustrating it must be to always have some layer on top that you're trying to protect in order to protect yourself from racism.
Good on him, and good on the rest of the grid for last year's efforts.
EDIT: Thanks for front page and all the rewards. #EndRacism.
I can’t believe I held off watching it for so long. This movie makes you think and makes you feel a certain type of way after watching it. I loved everything about it and am adding it to my Top 20 movies list. Can anyone suggest me some similar movies? Like a bit of rom but no time related movies please. I don’t mind sci-fi but I usually hate the time loop type movies.
This is so frustrating on so many levels.
No one has the authority to tell someone what to do with their bodies and lifestyle choices. No one has the authority to demean you by dismissing your opinions and pressuring you into their mindset by telling them who they are right now will change when they’re older because “society says it does.”
Some people don’t want children because they don’t want them. But some people say they don’t want children because they’ve tried and are infertile, have experienced miscarriage or stillbirth, or know that they have genetic predispositions that cause them to not want to chance bringing a child into this world potentially exposing them to an illness or disease.
It’s just so gross to me and feels so very condescending and I really just wish people would stop.
Sorry, rant over.
Edit: wow this blew up way more than I expected. Thank you all for your comments, awards, encouragement and support! I will read everyone’s comments, it’s just going to take me a while to get through them.
Fallout 4 is very underrated; it’s gun mechanics, settlement building, graphics and more had me for 3-4 play throughs
But it’s colour pallet, overly tongue in cheek scenarios and friendly characters lost a lot of what gripped me in FO3
FO3 was a horror game; with its dark green pallet, the unforgiving harshness of empty wasteland and the more morally ambiguous choices! Child slavery abs blowing up megaton were both extremely harrowing parts of the game.
There is also the metro underground with the feral ghouls, the centaurs and not to mention the super mutants bloody faces!
Edit; And how could I forget the dunwhich building! Thanks to the comments for reminding of some other horror elements! Might have to play it again!!!
Edit 2: give us the remake we deserve Bethesda!
The book is an insane political horror that I feel like I both fully understood and didn't grasp a single concept simultaneously. The realism is genuinely terrifying, everything in the book feels as though it could happen, the entire basis of the society and its ability to stay perpetually present logically stands up. I both want to recommend this book to anyone who is able to read it and also warn you to stay away from this hellish nightmare. The idea that this could come out of someones head is unimaginable, George Orwell is a legitimate genius for being able to conceptualise this. I'm so excited to start reading animal farm so no spoilers there, please. But to anyone who's read it please share your thoughts, even if it's just to stop my mind from imploding. I need something external right now
People always like to say that an affair within a marriage doesn’t involve the children, that it is none of the children’s business what goes on within their marriage but i have to say i completely disagree.
If you cheat on the mother or father of your children, you are willingly destroying your children’s stable family unit for 10 minutes of sex with another person.
I have read some people say that their ex/current spouse is still a great parent to their kids, even if they had an affair, but i will never be able to believe that anyone is a great or even a good parent if they thought sex with another person was worth more than a stable home life for their children.
Obviously children of divorce/separated parents are capable of having a stable home life, but if you cheat on the mother/father of them children, then you know fully well that the likelihood that a peaceful divorce/separation process will occur is very slim, which will extremely effect the kids, not to mention the resentment that the kids may have to see between their parents.
Edit: getting a comment saying this isn’t unpopular to then get comments saying that i’m ignorant and an idiot for thinking this way minutes later is kinda funny
