Late Night Open Thread: Good for Luke Skywalker

The whistleblower’s under federal protection because of rabid MAGAts, but Daddy’s Liddle’ Pwincess wants the world to know how very normal’n’basic her life is…

Gotta agree, I personally can’t wait until Jarvanka and all their adult kin are in prison or in exile, may the Goddess of Consequences permit.

    Also, there isn’t anything hanging on their walls. Not a painting, not a drawing, not a print, not a map. Nothing. Who lives like that? Am I missing something? That just seems weird and wrong and creepy.

    Picture of a big plane (Air Force One?) hanging on the wall the the room behind them.

    And of course the one piece of furniture ineluctably in anyone’s line of sight – the coffee table – is mirrored on every surface. Narcissus would say “That’s just too much.”

    Although it seems to be a commonplace postulation, why anyone would assume she possesses any greater brain wattage than her brothers has always been beyond my ken.

    She’s certainly not very smart, but her family’s overbearing sexism means she’s had to pick up a certain animal cunning that her brothers never did. For instance, she brags about cheating her little friends by faking ‘Indian arrowheads’ to sell them, because Daddy didn’t give her ‘enough’ of an allowance. And, of course, by comparison to the rest of the clan…

  26. 26
    Mnemosyne says:


    It seems pretty clear that she’s smarter than both of her brothers, but that’s not the same thing as saying she’s actually smart. A person with an IQ of 70 is smarter than someone with an IQ of 50, but that doesn’t mean they’re objectively smart.

    You know, it’s kind of fucked up but Trump’s entire behavior is caused because of the election and losing to Hillary. He is determined to go down in flames because he can’t get past HIllary’s “but her emails” and is doing the shit he accused Hillary of doing and doing all the same actions. It’s absolutely nuts. We’re all here because this President can’t let it go.

    Well I wouldn’t normally be caught dead at Yahoo Lifestyle but now I’m glad I went; got to see Robert De Niro channelling efgoldman!

    “This guy should not be president, period,” the Oscar winner told CNN host Brian Stelter.

    Stelter then pointed out the flak De Niro has received from those, including Fox News pundits, who say he should keep out of politics. The actor raised ire when he declared “Fuck Trump” during the 2018 Tony Awards.

    De Niro’s response to Stelter was just as raw.
    “Fuck ‘em,” he said of his critics, raising his arms for emphasis. “Fuck ‘em.”

    @West of the Rockies: That’s what I thought. Mummy and Daddy are going out, the kids aren’t.

    I wonder why one kid has a costume on and the other two don’t, although I do remember running around in a Bugs Bunny Hallowe’en costume in May, because I was 7 and wanted to. My best friend gave it to me because she outgrew it. I was able to wear it for two or three Hallowe’ens. It had a stiff molded fabric mask and the ears were on the hood, way cooler than anything that was sold even five years later, although I did wonder why Bugs’s body was blue satin.

    Good morning, fellow jackals !

    Would like to make request for information here. Live in small apartment, not enough desk / table space. Have laptop computer, covers 14″x10″ of table space, and bigger keyboard, 18″x7″
    Would like to be able to fold up computer when not using it, and stand them on end, so they take only 10″x5″ of space.
    Anyone seen such a gadget or “desk accessory” or whatever-they-call-it-so-I’d-know-what-to-search-for ???

    Thanks very much for your help with this.

    Maybe something like this? You didn’t mention how “thick” the items are, which of course would be the critical dimension for storing them vertically. I’m guessing 1" for the keyboard and a bit more for the computer.

    Or maybe this one—a more minimal treatment.

    Looks like you could sort of customize this one. (Look at the video.)

    We are all in this place because the president is a narcissistic, moronic, ass who cheats at every thing he ever does other wise he’d be a 105% loser instead of the 120% loser that he is. He’s not very good at cheating either.

    I need to be more careful. When I first read that, my teeny-tiny brain omitted that as “put on a dress.”

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that, of course.

    SFAW says:

    Depends on how you mean “good.”

    On the one hand, he’s not very “good” because his cheating is (almost) always so obvious; on the other hand, his results indicate that he’s “good” at it.

    @John Revolta:

    the flak De Niro has received from those, including Fox News pundits, who say he should keep out of politics.

    IIRC Fox News has declared in court that they are an entertainment channel. That makes every one of their “pundits” an actor (though nowhere near as good as De Niro of course), but they have no issue with messing with politics. Some of their more addled viewers have even mistaken the actors for the experts they play, and appointed them to political offices!

    “NIce cocaine table, Jared.”

    That decor sets my teeth on edge for hosts of reasons. The whole room does.
    A friend of mine, who was deeply immersed in the care of her 18-month-old son, related a conversation with an acquaintance who was anticipating a first pregnancy. She said she looked around this woman’s condo with its pale cream shag rugs (this was back in the 80s), white walls, spotless white upholstery etc., and said she wanted to ask, “What species of child are you planning to have?”
