  1. I've been seeing this one a lot. I need more context. I was wondering if there was a longer version. I keep seeing Plexaderm commercials and what bothers me is seeing the one guy applying the serum to his eye bags, and it gives me the willies seeing him pushing the eye bags back and forth.
  2. Maybe she agreed to go on the date because she wanted a free meal. I think the reason it took so long for me to figure out that he was from the other insurance company was because he wasn't with the other guy. Aren't there normally two of them?
  3. Am I the only one who thought her texts made it clear that she should be with David? It sounded like she was trying so hard with Ben but not with David. (My husband agreed with me, but maybe it just reflects how we talk to each other. And we're in a healthy relationship.)
  4. I commented in an earlier episode thread that the way she licks her fingers reminds me of a man I saw eating a booger once. I want to puke whenever I see her doing it. Also, I guess I'm someone's grandma or something because I really wish she'd ease up on the eyeliner and trim her bangs so that we can actually see her face. I don't really think you need to specialize in baking not to have made your own pasta. I know some people who make zucchini noodles, but I don't think I know anyone who makes their own pasta.
  5. I saw this commercial last night and it occurred to me that he might be one of those two guys from the competing insurance company that are always trying to get Progressive's secrets or something. Is he supposed to be one of those guys?
  6. Based on my own experiences, I will say this: I have one white parent and one Filipino parent, and I do not find the final quoted sentence to be true as a general rule here in the U.S. I'm always "half/half," "fil-am," etc. What's more I'd say, based on my own experiences and what I've observed of others, that the first paragraph is only true (when it's true) if the group in question is non-white. I mean, maybe that's indicative of white people thinking there's something wrong with being black/Filipino/whatever, but if you pass as white and have no connection to the "other" culture and someone learns you're 1/4 Japanese? People will start calling you Asian. (Edit: I want to clarify the above paragraph to say that I was recalling a specific event in which a friend was trying to locate another friend and asked a store employee if they'd seen an "Asian" guy matching his clothing description. The point I was trying to make was that although that description would absolutely not be helpful in finding this individual, his Asianness remained a salient feature to the friend who knew he was part Asian. Although I think there is a question of the point at which a certain part of your ethnicity stops "counting" because it's so far back. Are his 1/8 Japanese children Asian? Their 1/16 children?) I think there's a fine line between perpetuating the one-drop rule and acknowledging that that's simply how people are still regarded. People want people's races to be this OR that, not this AND that, and people are treated accordingly.
  7. No, I think it doesn't make sense because hot dogs are not made out of dogs. Maybe "I don't understand" was an exaggeration when I said it before, but the premise of their "joke" doesn't actually make any sense. It's not that it's not funny, it's that it's nonsense.
  8. What. When I first heard My Delirium I wondered how I hadn't heard it before then. It must have been new, but I thought it was from the '80s. I downloaded that song (obviously didn't pay attention to dates), but now I'll check out the rest of it.
  9. I don't know how to feel about you not having heard that song before Netflix existed.
  10. No it's more like it wasn't a funny joke! 😄 (The crux of the joke being that if Nirvana would have been fine without Kurt, Nirvana would still exist and the Foo Fighters would not.)
  11. That sounds vaguely familiar. Thanks.
  12. This song irritates the shit out of me. Her interpretation of the song is whatever. I'm not really into her music, so it's not something I'd ordinarily listen to, but that's not what bothers me. It's that the song name drops people (and a dog) she's never met and aren't involved with the present version of the song. She should have changed that line because it makes it sound so karaoke. Like the time I saw these people performing "Hips Don't Lie" down to the guy going "Shakira, Shakira," and it's like, that girl dancing around isn't Shakira, dude, so sing something else. Am I the only one who thinks Billie Eilish sings like someone just woke her up?
  13. She makes those faces because she's a terrible actor.
  14. Sorry to be responding to old posts, but I just finished season 2, so... She's supposed to be 9? I thought she was like 12 or 13. I can't tell how old people are! But it would make more sense that she and youngest Noah get together later. When are Magnus and Franziska helping Adam? So this whole time my husband and I have been unable to figure out why Jonas hasn't moved on in the 30 years since he saw Martha last, and it wasn't until she got shot that we were like, ohhhhhhh. Because didn't she get shot in front of the 1-ish year older Jonas? I can see how he would still have a thing for her and I can see how that might stick with you for some time. I don't know why I find it so troubling to learn that the guy playing oldest Ulrich isn't middle-aged Ulrich in makeup, but it is. The family tree that was posted above is actually better than this one that I've been using, but I find it helpful in that it includes pictures of people at all ages: http://davidklein.de/dark/
