I just saw the following in some guy’s Grindr bio:

“I saw Challengers and now I think I’m bisexual but idk?”

Those are some powerful strapping thighs.

Just because your brain isn’t fully developed doesn’t mean there shouldn’t be consequences for your actions. I mean, my kid is only 7 and God willing has lots of brain development ahead of him but he would certainly still get a stern talking to if he sat out on our front porch yelling “Go back to Poland” at passers-by.

Should your child ever actually do this, please record and upload to YouTube. (With the childs face obscured, of course).

[Time 18:56]; (1) On sandbox reference to university protesters, I disapprove of term being used beyond the toddler playground. Because people define it differently. At my previous IT job, programmers created a “sandbox”, a duplicate IT system as a place to perform testing of new components or exploring “What happens if I do X?”

(2): On taking protester youth seriously; in an environment of transparency- I think all protests are great, “Go express yourself”. But in anti-transparency (clandestine) DEI-aligned institutions and 100 city-Gov; officials and DEI directors secretly use protesting as a tool to further political aims. In 2020; DEI indoctrinated and hystericized city-gov employees and university students into protesting against police. Then SF Mayor Breed and many other mayors said publicly- “The public has spoken and is demanding Leftist police reform.” The president of Portland State University recently left a door open/unlocked so protesters could seize the library. I expect her to announce that students are forcing the university to act against Israel and therefore “she must obey.”

(3): Before DEI, anyone who broke the law or behaved violently could expect consequences from law enforcement. But since DEI has colonized the police departments; social justice activists get protection in public, but the rest of us do not; non-supporters were harassed, assaulted and attacked by pro-Defund protesters, non-supporters violently attacked by gender activists; Jews assaulted, attacked and one man killed in LA. Universities and public officials allow unlawful activity of protesters- placing everyone at risk. In 2020; public officials said “Because of (non-evidenced) oppression; we need to let protesters steal, damage property and burn down private property.”

“Challengers” seems like an interesting film judging by Kat’s commentary. While I have been pro-sexual liberation for 30+ years; I do not like watching movies where the actors show the audience how they have sex. The same for violence. I have walked out on movies at the theater because I didn’t want to see the hero get beat up.

I can’t believe you passed up the opportunity to title this episode Mocktail Molotovs ! Depending on what the ‘kids’ get up to this summer, you could use this phrase again.
