I'm wondering if anyone has the video of her saying it as I'm not sure how to video capture Twitch streams, but it's disgusting how they treated that poor woman. She seemed very uncomfortable talking about it.
Edge, Cena, a lot of the guys in the back and Lita herself tried stopping the segment from happening but Vince liked it so it went ahead.
Lita said that they threatened to fire her when she said she was uncomfortable with doing it, which is why she did it. It was the reason she decided to leave the company soon after, and she got buried when she left because of it.
Hey there, my name is Lee and I'm a producer for NPR's All Things Considered.
I'm interested in talking with anyone who feels their parents are starting to slip away into QAnon-land. Or perhaps they started to slip away months/years ago and are now fully converted. I'd like to hear about what it's like to try and reason with someone you love as they become more difficult. And I'd like to know what questions you have about how you can help. OR advice you have for other people in your shoes.
If you're willing to chat, send me a message or email me at [email protected]. Thanks!
I'm a big fan of this genre, and it's obviously going to be filled with combat. But god damn I have an issue getting through a lot of the combat portions.
For me it ends up reading like white noise. Some of these fight scenes can last 2000 words which can be summed up as, "Protag fights foe and wins with no long lasting injury."
I just end up skipping to the end of the fight which usually has a rough damage report and loot is being dished out.
Idk how many npr listeners we have in the sub, but I was listening to an interesting segment about rich people relocating to avoid taxes and they started off talking about how basically Tepper's relocation to Florida a few years ago saved him in the something approaching 100 million in taxes and caused a tax revenue crisis for the state of New Jersey. I can't find a corresponding print article but there's stuff out there on it. I personally didn't realize how loaded this guy was. Just a little off season discussion piece for those who find this sort of thing interesting. Yall can fact check me I was just going off what I heard on the radio.
Hear me out here. Taylor is obviously the funniest host of the show and everyone loves his accents, impressions, characters/voices and I think that if the boys are going to do anything animated, why not just have Taylor write something, voice it, and hire an animator?
Or do literally anything. The patreon on the final day of December was over $16k. Quit giving excuses
Legends returned, a Paul Bearer hologram showed up, the piped-in crowd yelled "peas", it was a lot. I'm sorry I couldn't do this one justice.
So I’m listening to 104.5 this morning as I’m taking my child to preschool. They’re doing a “Talk to Santa” segment where kids call in and tell Santa what they want for Christmas. Super cute. Then they say, “We’re going to Johnny and Mary on line 3” (making up names, can’t remember) and Santa asks what they want for Christmas and a woman comes on and says “Oh, this is Mom. Johnny and Mary aren’t ready to talk yet, but I’d like to share my Christmas wish.” Santa’s like, “A... okay... sure... what’s your wish?” And she goes, “My Christmas wish is for all parents out there to research vaccines before you give them to your children. It’s been proven that little girls who get vaccines can grow up to have infertility and-.” They cut her off and hang up on her and Santa has to say he got his vaccine and Mrs. Claus did and all the elves and that kids shouldn’t worry.
As a mother whose child was listening to this, I felt myself let out this guttural growl. I’m so tired of this crap. Really, it’s gotten to the point where you’re spreading your propaganda on kids’ segments?! You have to hijack them to spread your B.S.?! The embarrassment and shame I felt on behalf of this woman was indescribable. The fact that some people in Omaha are like this just ... ugh...
With the pandemic and all the good AEW has done so far keeping wrestlers safe, seems an uneeded risk to actually send them to Vegas in a less controlled environment. They could have just used a casino in Florida or have it back stage atleast.
