    A lot of people where I work vape, so I will now officially refer to them as "pussy sticks" :lol:

    Vape is the new filter, a marketing technique to make it slightly less dangerous so they can market it in a way that implies it's WAY healthier. Then flavor it so they can addict kids too young to think anything can ever overpower their free will.

    Thought there was a new ep today, but they're showing Scott Tenorman Must Die.

    Are e-scooters a thing or is that an embellishment of the green bikes?

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    E-Scoters are real, and every where, globally.

    I read an article in a magazine at the doctors office last week about how the the NZ government is thinking of banning E-Scooters because of the impact it is having on our single payer insurance system.

    I had to look up if e-scooters were real too, and they are! Apparently a bunch of them got taken off the streets because of a concern for them bursting into flames. Also, people can't even walk or drive without having their nose buried in a smartphone, motorcycles riders are in danger enough from inattentive people, how many people are going to be hit on these stupid things?

    Around where I live there are bikes that work like that but not scooters, holy crap. Whose idea was that? It's just a clearly terrible idea that will obviously result in lots of people getting hurt.

    The idea was clearly inspired by the season 1 "Sliders" episode were the Sliders found themselves in a world that seemed perfect. In San Fran you had cars that anyone could simply take and drive around if they wanted. Granted they didn't know this world had a lottery where the winners get killed in order to keep the population down but I am sure the scooter thing, replacing the car thing is what inspired them.

    Man that guising scene was hilarious. That’s very South Park.

    Huh, so it looks like the South Park guys have changed their minds on global warming.

    That's impressive considering not only the previous Al Gore episodes but every time they mocked the hysteria over global warming.

    Loved the scene where the guy is rationalizing doing nothing when his family is watching people get torn to shreds.

    Looks like the show is about to get 'serial', with a cliffhanger reveal that Stan's grandpa made the deal.

    Did they...kill Ned? I guess he hadn't really appeared for years and years, but still a surprising when they randomly dispatch a recurring character.

    I feel they also changed their minds. This is one example of why the show is so great. They aren't afraid to tackle stuff that isn't PC but at the same time they seem to take a honest look at issues and are willing to admit they are wrong if they feel they were wrong but not because they were bullied into by the internet but because it was a real change of view they came to on their own.

    Didn't have time to watch it yet. I was too busy robbing a bank at St. Denis.

    After Satan gets beaten up you're muttering to yourself "Now where's he gonna go, Detroit?" And nope, goes in the other direction. No way that's not going to bring about a future episode.

    The ending is right on point too. Yeah, good luck getting people to actually give up the things that are releasing carbon.

    How did Satan go to heaven? He isn’t Mormon.
    I liked the episode but the RDR2 references were rather dated. This isn’t last week.

    They loosened the restrictions when Satan tried to invade heaven, ironically to bolster their numbers to fight Satan.

    Satan going to heaven was so funny.

    I'm all caught up with the two-parter. All of the Al Gore stuff was pretty funny. I loved the credits to his film where he did everything.

    It's funny when I first saw the name Manbearpig in the episode description, I was convinced it was Scuzzlebutt (the one with Patrick Duffy as the leg) until I looked it up. :techman:
