  1. The Queen,.Charles and William are the only ones that should have access to any of that in any case. Iconoclastic sentiments (which are foolish, because the Royal Family represent billions in tourism revenue to the UK) about the Royal Family aside, those three are the only one that provide any really practical function to governance. As far as Harry and this chick are concerned, I could care less. I wish them all of the happiness in the world and the greatest luck in their future endeavors.

    None. I need my kidneys.

    I liked about half of it. Selena kind of grew on me with her last few records, and I liked a lot on this one. But heartfelt ballads are not things that are her strength.
  4. Triumphed over the capitalist pigs at the campus bookstore. I got all 7 required texts for the price of one brand new one at that store.

  5. It's the tale of two Irans. In a week that began with the assassination of General Qasem Soleimani, on the direct orders of the President of the United States Donald Trump, and one which featured displays of intense public mourning and 'rage' at the west, the week is ending on a much darker note for the Iranian Regime. On the night of the Iranian response to Soleimani's death, in which Iran fired dozens of short rage, surface-to-surface missiles at US Military Bases in neighboring Iraq, Ukrainian Airlines Flight 752 crashed outside of Tehran. In the days since, speculation ran rampant as to the cause. The United States, the United Kingdom and Canada all agreed that it was 'likely' that the Iranian Military shot the plane down. The Government of Ukraine, which initially proclaimed it an accident, quickly backed away from that and began to demand answers from the Iranian Government. The Iranian Government, for their part, dismissed it as the great "US-lie" and denied that the IRGC has shot the plane down, killing all 176 passengers, until yesterday. The Iranian Government has confirmed that it was the IRGC that shot the plane down, the reason given was communication failures and nervousness over a US response to the events that played out earlier that evening. The statement provoked outrage on the streets of Tehran, with thousands of protesters demanding that Supreme Leader resign, with shouts of "Death to the Islamic Republic", "Death to Liars" and "Death to the Dictators" being tossed around. The IRGC has moved quickly to quell the protests, but not before UK Ambassador Rob Macaire was arrested for 'inciting' them. News of the arrest provoked fury from the United Kingdom, UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said that "the arrest of our Ambassador in Tehran without grounds or explanation is a flagrant violation of international law. The Iranian government is at a cross-roads moment." Ambassador Maccaire is believed have been released, but not before word of the incident became wide-spread throughout the diplomatic community. This comes a day after the US Government announced the application of 17 specific new sanctions,which will effectively choke off whatever legitimate source of income that Iran can accrue. Source
  6. Gosh. I only know two of those names
  7. On a serious note. Since he married the Baldwin girl, he can vote. Considering he married one of the conservative ones, it’s not entirely out of the realm of possibility.

    I’d love them to revisit Coven. Other than that...
  9. I wonder what that tour would be like.

    Maybe if it didn't sound like it did, it would sell? Maybe the "Lyme disease" is clouding his judgement.

    136 people? Lord.
  12. It could be a coincidence. On the other hand, a passenger plane goes down early in the morning in Tehran only a few hours after the military has a missile party. They don’t know what’s going on, they don’t know what the plane is. They think it’s an American B-52.

    It went #1, it's no skin off my bones and certainly not off Mariahs. It did pretty well in non-English speaking countries too this year too, I think it hit #1 in Germany for example, but I'm not going to debate that. Ignoring AIWFCIY for a moment, most of the Top 10 was occupied by a Christmas songs and most of those, if not all of them, have dropped off the chart, it's not a fixation of doing that, it's just the effect of streaming. Save for Mariah, I don't think there's great bands of people conspiring to get holiday songs to chart, it just happens. It's going to keep happening too. I don't know what else to say

    Yeah But let's be honest, it wasn't the physical sales that pushed it up there, it was the streams. Every artist has those fans that will buy four copies, but I'm not one of them, so I cannot say

    No, it was 3
